The blues have been imported into Poland by multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and festival producer Irek Dudek (born Ireneusz Dudek). His group, the Silesian Blues Band, featuring Apostolis "Lakis" Antymos, Josef Skrzek, and Jerzy Piotrowski, was one of Poland's top blues-rock bands of the 1970s.
Laurence Juber, the former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney and Wings, is the premier solo acoustic guitarist of our generation. His arrangements are beautiful, fluid, and stunning, yet never does he sacrifice musicality for technical virtuosity. On this DVD, Laurence performs and explains six of his most popular solo guitar pieces in DADGAD and standart tuning. In the special lesson sections, Laurence walks you through the key aspects and techniques required for each arrangement, and you can select from multiple camera angles: watch the full performance or see a close-up right or left hand. In addition, several bonus song performances are included.
It's time to rock out to some blues with Blues Rock Anthology, a collection of live numbers sure to peel the paint off the walls and wail until the cats come home.
This is something of a sequel to the 1993 Ace compilation of early King sides titled Blues Guitar Hero: The Influential Early Sessions, though it took Ace nearly a decade to unleash the companion volume. All of the 24 tracks were recorded between 1961 and 1966, though some of the songs weren't released until after 1966, in a few cases not for decades; indeed, four alternate takes make their first appearance here. All of King's chart records occurred in 1961, and all were included on the prior Blues Guitar Hero: The Influential Early Sessions, so this couldn't qualify as the first-choice early King; there's no "Hide Away" or "San-Ho-Zay" here. On a musical level, though, this isn't much different in nature or quality than what you'll find on the earlier anthology. Split between vocals and instrumentals, it's top-notch R&B-blues-rock & roll crossover with stinging guitar and soulful vocals, even if the similarity of some of the songs might turn off non-aficionados.

2016 ten CD set. Trials Of Eyeliner is the definitive overview of Marc Almond's career, and the fact that Almond himself has personally curated the collection, allied to the 189-strong track listing, suggests that this is no exaggeration. Neal X, Almond's longstanding writing partner/musical director (and former Sigue Sigue Sputnik guitarist), supervised mastering of the tracks recorded over five decades between 1979 and 2016. This anthology is divided into three themed sections.
