The follow-up to A Drop of the Hard Stuff, released earlier the same year, is every bit as good, filled with great and spirited renditions of songs about rebellion, whiskey, and independence, plus a sea song or two. This was also the album on which the group introduced its de facto signature tune, "Whiskey in the Jar"." The high spirits and the ebullience of the performances almost mask the fact that these guys are virtuoso players and second-to-nobody as singers – as a result, the whole album rates multiple listens, even more so than its predecessor.
Residing somewhere between the Clancy Brothers and the Chieftains, but more raucous in their sensibilities than either of those outfits, the Dubliners have been Irish music's most uninhibited emissaries to the world since the mid-'60s. This album lives up to its title, offering some lusty renditions of drinking songs, rebel songs, reels, and just about every other subgenre upon which this group has built its reputation across the decades.
Elle King brings the debut album. Comes with lyrics and a description. Special Feature - Bonus Track: Japan only bonus tracks. Existing at the intersection of the two major retro-roots movements of the new millennium – the beehived, swinging '60s soul of Amy Winehouse and the bluesy roar of the White Stripes – Elle King's debut, Love Stuff, feels like a record that should've happened prior to 2015. Surprisingly, King is the only musician to mine this territory but she's not quite stuck in the past, whether that means the 20th century source or the canny revivals of Winehouse and Jack White.
Collection includes: Stuff (1976); More Staff (1977); Live Staff (1978); Staff It (1979); Live in New York (1980).
Engineer Jem Stansfield looks back through the Horizon archives to find out how scientists have come to understand and manipulate the materials that built the modern world. Whether it's uncovering new materials or finding fresh uses for those we've known about for centuries, each breakthrough offers a tantalising glimpse of the holy grail of materials science - a substance that's cheap to produce and has the potential to change our world. Jem explores how a series of extraordinary advances have done just that - from superconductors to the silicon revolution.
How Stuff Works is about the stuff that makes the world go ‘round. It’s truly incredible to see the ingenious lengths people go to in order to extract rubber and iron, corn and wheat, and water and salt from the earth. Equally amazing is the number of different and varied products that can be derived from something so fundamental.
