Antenna is the eleventh studio album by the American blues rock band ZZ Top, released in 1994. It was the band's first album to be released on the RCA label. It was also the first time ZZ Top had a song with the album title in its name ("Antenna Head"). The opening track and first single from the album, "Pincushion", reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in the US.
The brand new live album by the legendary Van der Graaf Generator. Recorded in 2013 featuring the first ever full live performances of "Flight” & "A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers”. ESOTERIC ANTENNA, are pleased to announce the release of the marvellous new live album by VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, "Merlin Atmos”. In June 2013, Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans took to the road in Europe to present a series of live concerts that featured a set list that excited devotees of Van Der Graaf Generator like no other for many years. The band had decided the time was right to present their epic classic piece "A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers” in its entirety on stage for the first time, along with Peter Hammill’s equally epic "Flight”.
Like precious few bands from the '70s whose best work is mummified daily thanks to classic rock radio, ZZ Top just keeps rolling on into the next decade. There's much to love here, from the downright nasty stomp of "Fuzzbox Voodoo," the powerhouse slow blues of "Cover Your Rig," the bass-pumping looniness of "Girl in a T-Shirt," to the slow grind of "Breakaway." While Billy Gibbon's guitar tones on this album are highly reminiscent of Tres Hombres (an early high-water mark for the band), the high production sheen from their '80s albums remains intact. But Gibbons hasn't played with this much over-the-top abandon since their pre-beard 'n' babes days, and that's what separates this album from the three that came before it.
“El Fantasma De Canterville” is the third album of study of the Argentine singer-songwriter León Gieco. It was released in 1976 by the label Music Hall.
David Chesky, born in Miami in 1956, settled in New York City in the 1970s and now identifies himself as an "urban orchestral composer." His Urban Concertos, of which he has written nearly a dozen, constitute his most substantial output. In the program notes for this recording of three of his concertos, he wrote, "Perhaps one can say my style is neo-impressionist. But I do not live on some quaint idyllic country farm, I live in the city that never sleeps! It is a hard-driving concrete jungle that pulsates around the clock." "Pulsating" is an apt descriptor for Chesky's music, which is notable for its restlessly high energy and rhythmic propulsiveness.
