The Essential Bruce Springsteen is a compilation album by Bruce Springsteen, released on 11 November 2003. Per liner notes comments by Springsteen, the collection was intended as an introduction to his music for new fans who attended shows on The Rising Tour; hence, it includes songs from every Springsteen album since his debut. The album was available as a 2-disc set and, later, as a limited edition 3-disc set; for the latter, the third disc contained a selection of rarities and previously unreleased recordings.
The Shadows are easily the most popular and influential British instrumental group of all time. Their career started in the late 50's as Cliff Richard's backing band and they consistently hit the singles charts well into the 80's. Lead guitarist Hank Marvin is cited by many modern pickers as a major influence. Throughout the latter part of their career, they released many instrumental covers and interpretations of classic themes.
Rare Earth combined R&B, funk, and psychedelic rock on hits like "Get Ready" and "I Just Want To Celebrate", but FILL YOUR HEAD tells the story of their classic years in detail. Encompassing the five studio albums from their prime period, this box set includes not only the band's best-known material, but all the additional album cuts that simultaneously contextualize and complete the Rare Earth legacy. Get the lowdown on one of finest, funkiest rock bands ever to grow from the Motown family tree.
This triple CD set came out on the heels of Ofra Haza's tragic death. It contains all her greatest hits in Hebrew, Yemenite/Arabic and English, and also songs that have never before appeared on an album. This is the ultimate collection of one of Israel's most beloved performers.
Ever the iconoclast, if there is one thing that Brian Eno has done with any degree of consistency throughout his varied career, it is presenting his art in an array of perpetually "out of the box" forums. All that changed – in a manner of speaking – with the release of two companion multi-disc compilations. Eno Box I: Instrumentals (1994) condenses his wordless creations, while Eno Box II: Vocals (1993) does the same for the rest of his major works on a similarly sized volume. Interestingly – and in his typically contrary fashion – this initial installment was actually issued last. Each of Eno Box I: Instrumentals' three CDs respectively concentrates on a specific facet of the artist's copious back catalog.
