Pop, Oldies | FLAC (tracks)+cue, front & back cover | 51:51 min | 316 MB
Label: Ace Records | Tracks: 24 | Rls.date: 2016

At first glance the worlds of classical music and pop might seem diametrically opposed – the former signifying straight-backed refinement and the latter youthful rambunctiousness – but as these two-dozen tracks attest, there are occasions when these unlikely bedfellows have resulted in a harmonious union.
Lincoln Mayorga & Amanda McBroom - Growing Up in Hollywood Town (1980) 24-Bit/192-kHz Vinyl Rip

Lincoln Mayorga & Amanda McBroom - Growing Up in Hollywood Town
Vinyl Rip in 24-Bit/192-kHz | FLAC tracks | no cue | no log | Covers | Rapidshare + FileFactory | 0.98 GB
1980 | Genre: Jazz | Label: Sheffield Lab | LAB-13 | Direct-to-Disc recording, Limited Edition

"Amanda" is beautiful and haunting. "The Portrait" is evocative and sad. And "The Rose," written for the film of the same name, garnered a Golden Globe Award for Amanda McBroom. She also does a great job with "Dusk." The other five cuts are primarily instrumental, and include two pieces penned by Lincoln Mayorga. I love Amanda's cuts, while the rest are more a matter of taste (you may translate that as "Audiophile" with a capital "A").

This rip was taken from a brand-new vinyl (unsold stock from a shop), a rarity, considering it is a Direct-to-Disc recording from the 80s with limited production run. The recording quality is superb, one of the best from Sheffield Lab.

Genre: History, Biology

Charles Darwin's theory of organic evolution—the idea that life on earth is the product of purely natural causes, not the hand of God—set off shock waves that continue to reverberate through Western society, and especially the United States. What makes evolution such a profoundly provocative concept, so convincing to most scientists, yet so socially and politically divisive? The Theory of Evolution: A History of Controversy is an examination of the varied elements that so often make this science the object of strong sentiments and heated debate.
