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.

The second release from Famous Flames is all about the power of melody and the marvels of the juxtaposition of saxophones and guitars. 'The Backbeat Of Rock and Roll' brings together the great songs that didn't need a sing-along chorus or a life-defining one liner in their lyrics. This wordless journey includes the infectious grooves and finger-popping hits that relied on twangy guitars, syncopated rhythms, all-consuming organs and honking brass stabs…

This collection pulls together a quite astonishing seventy Rock & Roll Instrumentals from the years during which R’n’R came into its own, 1956 – 1960. Including such obscure names as Phil Harvey, The Gamblers and The Renegades - behind which musical mavericks as important as Phil Spector, Bruce Johnson and Kim Fowley hid - alongside the somewhat more familiar Piltdown Men, Johnny and The Hurricanes and Sandy Nelson…
