Refuges: A Charisma Records Anthology tells the audio story of one of the most innovative labels of the '60s and '70s. Though this collection only spans a mere decade in the history of Rock (1969-78), it is a decade filled with musical innovation and excitement. Though most of their releases may have hovered outside the Top 40 in the U.S., the label's roster consisted of artists that are just as influential today as at any other time in the last 30-40 years. Features 44 tracks including cuts from Peter Gabriel, Van Der Graaf Generator, Genesis, Monty Pythons, Hawkwind, Bo Hansson, Rare Bird, The Alan Parson Project, Lindisfarne, Peter Hammill, Keith Emerson, String Driven Thing and many others.
The albums the band recorded for Virgin Records in one package complete with bonus tracks previously unreleased from sessions recorded for the BBC - Remastered from original tapes. The band that featured Phil Collins from Genesis on drums, have never had a upgrade on the catalogue and having all the albums on one 4-CD set is the first time in a number of years they have been available. The set also features sleeve notes by Malcolm Dome and upgraded artwork.

A step by step guide on how to become consciously aware of and master the very emotions and flows of feeling that have been blocking and stopping you.
"The Refugees Of The Blue Planet" is a very sad and truly moving documentary by Quebecois filmmakers, Hélène Choquette & Jean-Philippe Duval, about the ever growing phenomenon of environmental refugees. These are people who have been displaced as a result of the ever growing number of natural disasters (which the documentary argues are a result of global warming), or as a result of the negligence of corporations and governments who makes deals to extract hazardous resources on peoples land, utilize practices which degrade the environment, or force people off their land for the creation of monoculture farms.
Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist Peter Hammill is a veteran of the rock genre, recording in excess of 40 albums both alone and as a band leader for more than 30 years.
