Although one may think of the blues harp beginning with Little Walter, the first Sonny Boy Williamson, or Sonny Terry, a variety of harmonica players did record in the '20s. Some of their recordings were technical displays that featured them imitating everything from animals to trains, while other players were more blues-oriented. This valuable CD has two selections from the guitar-harmonica team of William Francis and Richard Sowell; Ollis Martin's "Police and High Sheriff Come Ridin' Down"; six pieces by Eli Watson (including "El Watson's Fox Chase"); two cuts apiece by Palmer McAbee, Ellis Williams, Alfred Lewis, and the team of Smith & Harper (which is the only music on this CD recorded after 1930); plus four songs/displays from Blues Birdhead (including "Get up off That Jazzophone") and George "Bullet" Williams (highlighted by "Frisco Leaving Birmingham" and "The Escaped Convict"). Fascinating music.

The Mound City Blue Blowers originally made history with a dozen high-quality novelty recordings during 1924-25 that featured the trio of Red McKenzie's comb, Dick Slevin's kazoo and banjoist Jack Bland; guitarist Eddie Lang solidified the rhythm on their later six numbers. However, other than McKenzie's participation, those dates had little to do with the 25 recordings on this Classics CD, the last issued under the Mound City Blue Blowers' name. In fact, other than taking four vocals on the first date, McKenzie makes only cameo appearances on kazoo during the remainder of the program, although he had clearly organized the bands…

The great arranger Don Redman made Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra in the mid-1920s the first real swing band, but during the swing era itself, Redman was little known to the general public. His big band (heard here on the second of three "complete" Classics CDs) failed to really catch on, although it stayed together throughout the 1930s. After recording a bunch of sessions in 1933, Redman's orchestra only cut two sides in Jan. 1934 and then none until May 1936. There are vocals on 22 of the 25 selections on this CD; of the three instrumentals, this version of "Christopher Columbus" might not be by Redman…

As a rule, record companies don't give artists the chance to pick the songs when a boxed set is assembled. They might ask the person who writes the liner notes to interview the artist, or they might even have the artist write the liner notes. But the label, not the artist, usually chooses the material. Self Portrait is an exception; when this five-CD, 95-track boxed set was assembled in 2001, a 91-year-old Artie Shaw was given a rare chance to make the selections himself and comment on them. And for those who are seriously into the clarinetist, it is fascinating to see what he chooses. Self Portrait, which spans 1936-1954, contains most of his essential swing, era hits, including "Stardust," "Begin the Beguine," "Frenesi," and his ominous signature tune, "Nightmare."

"Faisons un reve" is an adaptation of one the first, oldest pieces by Sacha Guitry and probably one of this most witty, poetical and charming works. Not more than three caracters: the husband, the wife, her lover. And a "divertissement" was born out of this simple threesome: within four walls something happens, the lover becomes more and more daring and the wife, dazzled, falls in love with him.

Italian | 2014 | 332 pages | ASIN: B00JVXJ1DO | EPUB | 0,9 MB

Vincendo la guerra civile il generale Franco ha imposto alla Spagna la sua dittatura modellata sui regimi fascisti che lo avevano sostenuto. Per molti anni dopo la fine della guerra ha continuato, con una spietatezza senza pari, a uccidere un enorme numero di oppositori, tenendone molti altri in carcere o in campi di concentramento. Poiché per tutto questo il regime franchista è restato il simbolo della più oscura e longeva antidemocrazia nella storia dell'Europa occidentale, la Repubblica che egli ha abbattuto è rimasta il simbolo della democrazia. È noto che la Spagna repubblicana all'avvio della guerra è stata immediatamente travolta da un'ondata rivoluzionaria, e solitamente si considera questo fenomeno come un contraccolpo al tentativo di golpe militare, per far fronte al quale era occorso armare il popolo..
Mass Political Culture Under Stalinism: Popular Discussion of the Soviet Constitution of 1936

Mass Political Culture Under Stalinism: Popular Discussion of the Soviet Constitution of 1936 By Olga Velikanova
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 267 Pages | ISBN : 3319784420 | 3.94 MB

This book is the first full-length study of the Soviet Constitution of 1936, exploring Soviet citizens’ views of constitutional democratic principles and their problematic relationship to the reality of Stalinism. Drawing on archival materials, the book offers an insight into the mass political culture of the mid-1930s in the USSR and thus contributes to wider research on Russian political culture. Popular comments about the constitution show how liberal, democratic and conciliatory discourse co-existed in society with illiberal, confrontational and intolerant views.
