This particular CD is an exception to these rules: This is a straight reissue of a live album, recorded in 1990 in Zagreb, Croatia. Also, Drew is accompanied by George Mraz on bass and Lewis Nash on drums. The fact that the rhythm section inspired Drew on stage is apparent from the burning-hot opening track "Autumn Leaves." This is a very exciting live album!
"…the best in European jazz of 1975"(Record Collectors Journal)
"…(Drew) is now at the peak of his career. Duo Live In Concert is his third collaboration with bassist Niels Pedersen, and to hear those two solo voices together is a thrill…this album improves upon its excellent predecessors."(Transition, N.Y.)
Live is a concert video release by rock band The Cranberries. Recorded on 14 January 1994 at Astoria 2 on the band's stop in London, England, it was originally released on VHS in May 1994. The concert was re-released on DVD in February 2005. The DVD includes an interactive picture gallery and a jukebox feature that allows you to play the tracks in a randomised playlist.
Twelve years after they released their first Merle Haggard box, The Untamed Hawk, Bear Family delivered the sequel, Hag: The Studio Recordings 1969-1976. This picks up where The Untamed Hawk left off, which is more of a musical dividing point than it initially seems. If The Untamed Hawk caught Haggard as he was reaching full flight, Hag captures him in his prime, as every single he released reached the Country Top Ten – often capturing the number one slot – and as he sometimes crossed over into the pop Top 40. Hag was without a doubt the biggest star in country music but the remarkable thing about his reign at the top was that he never played it safe.
The recordings for this album were made on digital equipment by NOS radio in Holland for the AVRO radio programme 'Folk live' at the Carre Theatre in Amsterdam on October 6, 1983. As founder member Luke Kelly tragically died only a few months after this concert those recordings are the very last Dubliners recordings with Luke. This album is as much a historical event as it is a musical highlight in the respectable career of one of Europe's finest musical groups: The Dubliners.
