It's 1922; somewhere in Australia. When a Native Australian man is accused of murdering a white woman, three white men (The Fanatic, The Follower and The Veteran) are given the mission of capturing him with the help of an experienced Native Australian (The Tracker). So they start their quest in the outback, not knowing that their inner wrestles against and for racism will be more dangerous that the actual hunting for the accused.
Recorded at The Top of the Plaza in Rochester New York on February 6 1973, remains one of the most sought-after and influential shows ever recorded by Buddy. Syndicated by PBS in that year, it was the first time thousands of drummers had been exposed to Buddy in a full length concert setting, and many drummers continue to name this program as a primary influence on their own playing.
If you like your metal with lots of keyboards and classically-inspired speed-metal guitarwork - this is NOT the album for you. PARAGON play metal so old-school it hurts. There are similarities here to Grave Digger, Manilla Road, Omen, and even old Mercyful Fate. The common denominator here is METAL, or make that METAL!!! These guys do their metal the old fashioned way, with steel smoldering riffs, shout-along choruses, and solos that will peel the paint off your car.
Italian pop star Laura Pausini's first English LP, From the Inside, is a guilty pleasure for any closeted fan of easy-listening pop (Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, Backstreet Boys). The album kicks off with the glorious "I Need Love," a song that earned her U.S. exposure when the ABC daytime drama All My Children used it as a love theme. Other highlights include "Every Day Is a Monday," a Europop mainstream song laced with a wah-wah guitar, and the Dion-like "Without You." Pausini is clearly influenced by Dion. Her voice doesn't soar to the heights that Dion reaches, but she comes close in songs such as "If That's Love" and "Every Day Is a Monday." Like most albums filled with love songs, "surrender" is a theme throughout From the Inside, especially in the funky ballad "Do I Dare" and the Europop "Surrender." This is one album to surrender to.

Originally released in 1964 and 1965 on the Fontana label. Included among the ranks of The Mindbenders were future 10cc members Eric Stewart (at the time of these recordings) on guitar and vocals, and later (1968) Graham Gouldman on bass. For straightforward solid meat'n'potatoes British Beat, one need look no further than Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders. What they lacked in originality they more than made up for in good old-fashioned exuberance and panache.
