In 1943, the Allies decided to land in Italy. Two army corps, one commanded by Clark, the other by Montgomery, set foot in the Gulf of Salerno and Calabria. On site, after some success with taking Naples, the troops face a strong Nazi resistance. Field Marshal Kesselring had indeed ordered the German soldiers to hold their position. After the Allied invasion in September 1943 and Italy's surrender, General Mark Clark's U.S. Fifth Army pursued the German forces of Field Marshal Albert Kesselring into the Apennine mountains. There the Allies confronted a formidable system of mountain defenses and ferocious winter weather. A radical solution was needed to break the impasse–and in the resulting Allied gamble, the Battle of Anzio, around 100,000 men would be lost to both sides. On the morning of January 22, 1944 Allied troops landedat Anzio on Italy's west coast . Germans were taken by surprise and it seemed that American and British forces would finally break through German defenses.

Cray found himself in some pretty intimidating company for this Grammy-winning blues guitar summit meeting, but he wasn't deterred, holding his own alongside his idol Albert Collins and Texas great Johnny Copeland. Cray's delivery of Muddy Waters' rhumba-rocking "She's into Something" was one of the set's many highlights…

Songwriter and pianist Anne Clark has been a cult figure since the early '80s and has amassed a rather sizable catalog despite her small but rabid following. She writes nearly-Gothic love songs full of obsession and pathos, and pretty orchestral settings with clever instrumental figures and stinging piano runs and minor-key epiphanies. She's a consummate artist, playing to her strengths while trying to subtly, but surely, extend her reach, and always following her own muse, even when it takes her into dissonant territory. Most of her albums are out of print even on CD, and sell for collector's prices when they can be found. This is too bad, because Clark has assembled a solid, if quirky, and passionately honest body of work. This best-of issued by Beehive is truly that. It features 24 tracks and clocks in at over 75 minutes. Many of these are Clark's most lovely songs, such as "The Sitting Room," "All Night Party" (with Vini Reilly of Durutti Column), the "12" remix" of "Our Darkness," and "The Last Emotion," as well as instrumental themes such as "Swimming" and "An Ordinary Life".

Albert Lortzing (1801-1851) was a prolific composer of very tuneful German comic operas, of which "Zar und Zimmermann" is his generally acknowledged
masterpiece. Lortzing also wrote the libretto, based on literary sources, for this and his other operas mentioned below. The German genre, known as 'spieloper', grew out of the 'singspiel' tradition of which Mozart's "Abduction from the Seraglio" is the best known example. Though a cousin to the Italian 'opera buffa' and the French 'opera comique' and the Spanish 'zarzuela', the German equivalent never traveled outside the German-speaking world with the success its cousins enjoyed outside their home countries. But such works are still popular at home.

It is uncertain, who initially had the idea to provide the Texan blues musician Albert Collins with trademarks all linked to ice: to call himself „The Iceman“ and to name one of his main recordings of the late-70s „Ice picking“. Already the music made by the young Collins, born 1932 in Leona/Texas, was praised to be especially „cool“; and of course, when he performed on the tiny stage of „Onkel Pö‘s Carnegie Hall“ on Eppendorfer Lehmweg in Hamburg, he was joined by his band called „The Icebreakers“. Naturally, on this winter evening no cold barrier needed to be overcome, certainly not in the overcrowded „Pö“, where most probably (as so often) tropical temperatures will have prevailed. The extremely incited and enthusiastic blues community of Hamburg turned the evening into a glittering party in honour of the guest from Texas.
