Roy Conyers Nesbit - The Strike Wings Special Anti-Shipping Squadrons 1942-45
William Kimber | 1984 | ISBN: 0718305205 | 288 pages | PDF | 63.23 MB

In 1942 the RAF began to form special Strike Wings to attack the heavily defended and seemingly invulnerable convoys that brought Germany's vital supplies of iron ore from Scandinavia down the coast of Europe to feed its war machine. The outcome was a series of air/sea battles at close quarters, fought with increasing ferocity until the last days of the war. The author, himself a survivor of strike aircraft of Coastal Command, has researched these little-known and complex battles from British and German records, assisted by first-hand accounts from some of the brave and distinguished airmen who flew in the attacks. He has also analyzed the effects of the tactics employed on the German war economy, with some startling conclusions. The result is a vivid history of events that were little publicized during the war for reasons of security. There are detailed diagrams of some of the attacks, as well as photographs taken in action.

Using the extensive archives held at the Public Record Office, the author has brought to light more than 180 photographs taken by Coastal Command crews during WW2. They include some of the most remarkable pictures of the war, illustrating in vivid detail the actions fought by Coastal Command against U-boats, enemy warships, merchant ships and aircraft, over six years of war. Each photograph is accompanied by an exhaustively researched caption.

Roy Montgomery - R M H Q: Headquarters (2016)  Music

Roy Montgomery - R M H Q: Headquarters
Post-Rock, Ambient, Space Rock | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 173:50 min | 398 MB
Label: Grapefruit | Tracks: 30 | Rls.date: 2016

It's been over a decade since Roy Montgomery's last album, and R M H Q is a hell of a return. This release contains four distinct records of new material. Listening to any of his work is a visceral experience repeating phrases swell and decay, immersing the listener in the cyclical narrative of his compositions. Montgomery was in his rock band period in the eighties, when the dark, minimalist post-punk of The Pin Group lead into the gloriously open-ended freedoms of Dadamah.

EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 249 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 145 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans ~ 70 Mb
Genre: Big Band, Swing, Mainstream Jazz | Label: Columbia | # CK 45275 | Time: 01:01:18

This CD contains the best recordings from the early years of the fiery trumpeter Roy Eldridge. Eldridge, one of the great swing trumpeters and a powerful player into the 1970s, is heard with Teddy Hill's orchestra, backing singer Putney Dandridge, on four titles with Fletcher Henderson (including the hit "Christopher Columbus"), starring on a four-song session with Teddy Wilson, joining Billie Holiday on "Falling in Love Again," soloing on two numbers with Mildred Bailey (his "I'm Nobody's Baby" solo is years ahead of its time), and, best of all, leading a small group through six songs (plus an alternate) from his own explosive sessions of January 1937. This brilliant music is essential for all serious jazz collections.
