Arguably the most iconic and famous rock star of all time, Mick Jagger has gathered no moss during his time off from fronting the world’s biggest rock band, The Rolling Stones. For the first time ever, his work as a solo artist is examined in an essential singledisc anthology spanning over thirty years of highlights, with tracks selected by Jagger himself. The retrospective reaches as far back as 1970 to include the Jagger/Richards-penned classic Memo From Turner that Mick recorded without his Glimmer Twin for the soundtrack to the 1970 cult film Performance. Jagger’s indelible voice is spotlighted on other stand-outs including the 1985 hit Just Another Night from his solo album debut She’s The Boss, duets with Peter Tosh, David Bowie and Bono, tracks with Lenny Kravitz and Dave Stewart, three previously unreleased tracks, including the John Lennon-produced treasure Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup), and more. A limited edition bonus DVD companion ups the ante for collectors and fans upon initial release.

The 1989 album “Guasasa” is the last studio album for the Fania Six, the Fania All Stars offshoot created in 1976 by Columbia Records for marketing purposes. It features their rhythm section comprised of: Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto, Bobby Valentín, Roberto Roena, Nicky Marrero and virtuoso pianist Papo Lucca. Clearly intended as a Latin jazz set, this album actually bears a more dance-oriented style (as in instrumental salsa, so to speak) as opposed to this band’s earlier, bolder California Jam date. While the former date was actually a real jam session, here they work with formal charts, calculated solo spots and a less-relaxed ambience that actually belies the laid-back feel of the album.
Almost everyone is familiar with Carl Orff's Carmina burana - this extremely popular work belongs to classical music programs all over the world. The work appears twice on this compilation: one version was conducted by Eugen Jochum, who devoted a great deal of his attention to Orff's music. The composer himself considered Jochum's interpretations to have set the standard for performances.
