Moving Gelatine Plates is a French progressive rock band first formed in 1968 by Gérard Bertram (guitarist) and Didier Thibault (bassist and band leader), who met in 1966 as 14-year-old schoolmates. Being heavily influenced by jazz, the band is considered to be part of progressive rock's Canterbury scene despite its national origin. In particular, the band's sound has been compared to Soft Machine. According to Thibault, the band’s name derives from the novel Travels with Charley: In Search of America by John Steinbeck.
French progressive rock and fusion band from the early 1970's. They were strongly influenced by Canterbury bands like Soft Machine and Caravan, and are often compared to the Dutch band Supersister. Later the band reformed under the shortened name Moving, and then after a very long hiatus in activity reformed again in 2006.
Easily the longest of any Capitol single-disc compilation, 2005's The World of Nat King Cole also benefits from a fresh remastering of its material to make it the best introduction to the interpretive brilliance of Nat King Cole. Nearly all the hits that need to be here are indeed present: "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "Route 66," "Nature Boy," "Too Young," and "Mona Lisa." The compilers also wisely chose a few representative songs to replace some of the middling hits; the only surprise is the absence of "The Christmas Song" and "Lush Life," although the chart hits – "Answer Me, My Love," "Pretend," "Looking Back"…

The original 12-song LP has been expanded to 20 tracks for this CD. The original material comprised a very pleasant and diverting psychedelic pop release, strongly reminiscent at times of the early Bee Gees from Horizontal, interspersed with some heavier-sounding tracks that were closer to the World of Oz's actual sound on-stage. The bonus cuts are single edits and mixes of tracks that were already represented on the album, so there's nothing new to hear except for a punchier, more compressed sound on some of the better songs.

The original stories by P.G. Wodehouse are delightfully amusing and worthy of out loud chuckling at times. The films series Jeeves and Wooster are as close as one could come to the dry wit of uber intelligent Jeeves, as he contends with his witless (and certainly not dry) employer, Bertie Wooster. Their shenanigans usually revolve around various comedies of errors set in that mystical feudal society of 1930s Britain. This collection of music and a bit of dialogue from the series is just as delightful, embodying the bouncy, whimsical style of light music from the 1920s and 30s. Recommended.
The World Of Krautrock Vol.1 (1997). Once upon a time, all fairy tales start. And gave the recollections of the time as it still Kreidler motorbikes and wild music also 'Krautrock' called. The artists on the CD are represented, also at that time for good tones there provided Birth Control from Berlin and Guru Guru from the Heidelberg area. They have become legends for us at least. On the CD are found beside the already mentioned groups also Witthüser & Westrup with wonderful ballads..
