At the time this album was recorded, Jefferson Airplane had expanded from a rock group into something of a San Francisco collective of musicians and launched its own record label, Grunt, necessitating a flow of product. As a result, there was a flurry of releases by the Airplane itself and several offshoots, with each of these records featuring several members of the loose aggregation informally dubbed "PERRO ("the Planet Earth Rock 'N' Roll Orchestra").
Try! is the first live album by the John Mayer Trio. It was released by Columbia Records on November 22, 2005. The album was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards. The trio features John Mayer (guitar/lead vocals), Pino Palladino (bass), and Steve Jordan (drums/backup vocals). Unlike previous efforts by John Mayer, Try! focuses on popular blues renditions rather than adult-contemporary pop songs. The CD includes two cover songs, "Wait Until Tomorrow" by Jimi Hendrix, and "I Got a Woman" by Ray Charles; two of Mayer's previous album, Heavier Things' songs, "Daughters" and "Something's Missing"; and also showcased two songs from Mayer's then forthcoming album…
Featuring "My Sweet Lady", "Take e Home, Country Roads" and "Sunshine On My Shoulders"
This is my favorite album of John Denver, with memorable songs and certainly their best versions. This is the case of "Sunshine on my shoulders" with his guitar and a bass, will come a later version that adds a very sweet string orchestra.
The Symphony in C is an early work by the French composer Georges Bizet. According to Grove's Dictionary, the symphony "reveals an extraordinarily accomplished talent for a 17-year-old student, in melodic invention, thematic handling and orchestration." Bizet started work on the symphony on 29 October 1855, four days after turning 17, and finished it roughly a month later. (…) The symphony was immediately hailed as a youthful masterpiece on a par with Felix Mendelssohn's overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream, written at about the same age, and quickly became part of the standard Romantic repertoire. It received its first recording on 26 November 1937, by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Walter Goehr.
An official reissue of this killer 1971 Swedish heavy progressive album - made directly from the master reels - with freaky wah-wah guitar swirling keyboards, bombastic drumming (with double bassdrums) heavy stoner fuzzbass, hard riffing psychedelic guitars, teeth-grinding Hammond organ and funky percussion all played at a highly energetic pace. The CD also includes 8 exclusive bonustracks featuring Asoka MK. II, MK.III, livesongs with Taste Of Blues and a 10 minute track with Take Off (pre-Asoka). Pictures and a complete band history are housed with the CD in a nice Digipack.
Bark, Jefferson Airplane's seventh album, was an album of firsts: it was the first Airplane album in almost two years, the first made after the arrival of violinist Papa John Creach and the departure of band founder Marty Balin, and the first to be released on the group's own Grunt Records label. It was also the first Airplane album made after the onset of that familiar rock group disease, solo career-itis…
