Sylvie Vartan is a French pop institution, as popular today as when she first took the yé-yé scene by storm in 1962. The vivacious and always stylish Sylvie was also a pioneer amongst the new breed of French female artists, crossing the Atlantic several times in the early 60s to record. She proved remarkably adept at tackling material in English, which resulted in many superb recordings chanted in a husky, compelling accent. Her main foreign release in that era was the US-only album "Gift Wrapped From Paris". It combined tracks from the 1963 "Sylvie à Nashville" LP along with new sessions cut in New York in late 1964 with a crack session crew plus Ellie Greenwich and friends on backing vocals, all directed by Sylvie's brother Eddie Vartan. Later on Sylvie recorded in England and utilised the talents of her British in-house writers, Tommy Brown and Micky Jones, the latter later to become famous in the band Foreigner.

I pity the poor foreigners, who don't speak German. I'm going through my record collection ripping those that I can't find online for download. And most of them are in German, leaving everybody behind who rather regards German language as a disease. Here we have rhyming Roski, who brings this German language to artistic splendor. His lyrics are sometimes comedy, sometimes nonsense word plays, often cynic or sarcastic. Some of his rhymes became proverbs in everyday language, pushing his records into the top ten charts in the 70ies. If you want to improve your German (whether you are German or a foreigner), this is the best occasion. The musical style varies between folk, country and jazz.

Cat#: Island 90193-1 | Country/Year: US 1984
Genre: Rock | Hoster: Filesonic/Uploaded

This Fast Forward album/project is like a whos who of melodic rock. So many punters turn up to the Races on this one. Based around ex Stories singer Ian Lloyd, plus noted Vancouver based Bruce Fairbairn, the duo invite many local residents plus hangers on to contribute. David Sinclair, Jim Vallance, Bryan Adams, plus significant contributions from Beau Hill, Bob Rock, and even the Foreigner pairing of Mick Jones and Lou Gramm.
So this is def. in the competition of finding the ugliest album cover ever, but may be interesting for friends of the early Bryan Adams, who did much of the songwriting here.

The album consists of 6 acoustic, improvised pieces, and contains no compositions in the traditional sense of the word.

With this programme of four sonatas, the young pianist Rémi Géniet presents a highly judicious selection that enables listeners to enter the exceptional world of Beethoven’s thirty-two piano sonatas, which Hans von Bülow described as the ‘New Testament’ for pianists, the ‘Old Testament’ being Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavie.

"The idea of this program is to feature concertos for several ensemble instruments in a variety of sound combinations. For example, Telemann's Concerto for flute and recorder is a response to Bach's Concerto for violin and oboe. Telemann chooses the four-movement form, thereby recalling the old sonata da chiesa, whereas Bach adopts the three-movement form created by Vivaldi. The Concerto for harpsichord in F major BWV 1057 is a retranscription Bach himself made of his Fourth Brandenburg Concerto for a command performance in Leipzig.

Award-winning saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Jackiem Joyner celebrates his first decade as a recording artist with Main Street Beat. Joyner became a father after his previous release, 2014's Evolve, an elation-inducing experience that informed the music he wrote and produced for Main Street Beat. The first single from the funky, Motown-influenced session is the exultant Trinity, named for Joyner’s first child whose presence is given voice on this release by Steve Oliver’s incandescent acoustic guitar.
