This is a wonderful CD. Great musicianship, instrumentation, beat. Combo of blues, rock, rock and roll. Can listen to the songs over and over again. Makes you want to get up and dance or at least sway to the beat…
From vast boombox symphonies to chamber music and song cycles, Phil Kline's (b. 1953) work has been hailed for its originality, beauty, subversive subtext, and wit. ...In terms of its harmonic make-up this album begins in a traditional enough format, but once the inaugural choral sequence is dispensed with, the uncompromising strings of 'Offertorium' bring a very contemporary sense of uncertainty, as the piece swells with strange and ambiguous drama. Towards the end of the mass the choir lose their grip on language altogether, groaning their way through 'Dark Was The Night' , as all the while jagged strings stab and slash around in the background. Powerful stuff.

This "Middle-Eastern", or rather a Central-Asian action film, about the Red Army fighting the counter-revolutionary robber bands has become not only a cult movie, but also one of the favorites for several generations of viewers. With Russian cosmonauts, it is a tradition to view this film before going to outer space. The film’s success paved the way for a genre of national “Eastern”. A demobbed soldier, Fyodor Sukhov, is making his way through the desert to his home village. The band of the brutal Abdulla is raging in that area. Sukhov is charged with escorting the chief’s harem, because Abdulla intended to kill his women rather than let them go free. Sukhov’s mate, a young soldier Petrukha, dies at the hand of Abdulla. But at the decisive moment, Sukhov gets help from the former customs officer Vereshchagin and a poor peasant, Said.
"Mungo Jerry" is the debut album by Mungo Jerry, released in 1970. Mungo Jerry are a British rock group whose greatest success was in the early 1970s, though they have continued with a changing line-up that has always been fronted by Ray Dorset. The group's name was inspired by the poem "Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer", from T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. They are identified with their biggest hit "In the Summertime". It remains their most successful and most recognisable song. They had nine charting singles in the UK, including two number ones, and five top 20 hits in South Africa.
Tired of a creeping tendency towards pop territory that was happening in his old band, the Yardbirds, Eric Clapton was after one thing alone: the blues. With John Mayall and his pool of fledgling giants he got it in spades.
