Quigley Down Under interprets the modern Western score from a distinctly Australian perspective. Basil Poledouris' aw-shucks melodies and quirky arrangements employ French horn, banjo, and clarinet to create a vivid evocation of gunslinger life in the Outback. While Lonesome Dove remains Poledouris' definitive work in the Western arena, Quigley Down Under possesses no shortfall of charm or imagination; its playful approach bubbles with an energy quite uncommon to the genre, avoiding portent and ponderousness to communicate the joie de vivre of its characters and setting. Most impressive is Poledouris' stirring main theme, a bold, oddly funky reinvention of the classic Western fanfare that immediately serves notice that Quigley Down Under is a horse of a very different color.

Widely considered the creative apex of television scoring, Basil Poledouris' sweeping Lonesome Dove remains the most compelling and effective orchestral music ever written for the small screen – it's also the best Western score to appear in any medium in the last quarter century, with an eloquence and slap-leather authenticity all its own. Poledouris' beautifully poignant score captures the fading grandeur of the American West in vivid detail – while its panoramic arrangements evoke the wide-open spaces of a land not yet overrun by highways, skyscrapers, and strip malls, Poledouris is most effective when exploring the rugged yet tender character of the men and women who made the frontier their own. Sonic Images' soundtrack contains roughly one-third of Poledouris' complete four-and-a-half-hour score – perhaps someday a box set will assemble Lonesome Dove's music in full, but for now this highlight reel does the trick.

World premiere expanded CD of Basil Poledouris soundtrack for John McTiernan film from Tom Clancy novel, starring Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, Scott Glenn, James Earl Jones, Sam Neill. Sensational action-suspense tale is film introduction of Jack Ryan (Baldwin), working with CIA intelligence to determine if Soviet commander piloting nuclear super-sub heads towards U.S. waters to defect… or launch attack. Best of four films featuring Jack Ryan to date, Poledouris brings inspired mood, color to exciting tale by weighing anchor with magnificent, massive "Hymn To Red October" for large orchestra, chorus, then taking off with vivid cues for orchestra, layers of electronics plus his chorus. Score literally provides rhythm, pulse of movie as well as underlines intense action sequences. Interestingly, one of score's few moments of respite comes with reflective "Two Wives", a gentle cue dropped from finished film. Entire score remains one of composer's most important works, and earns it's place as a classic of nineties motion picture music! Original MCA label CD was mere 30-minute sampling of score. Intrada CD offers over an hour of masterful music including first release of "End Title" given significance in one point by powerful presentation of main hymn melody via orchestra sans choir in dynamic manner.

At last! All-important cue underscoring first appearance of Robocop - with dynamic first statement of main theme, right down to clanking metal - makes it to CD! ROBOCOP has hit the market twice before, but both releases inexplicably deleted important cue plus subsequent variants as Robo first goes into action with hostage crisis. Paul Verhoeven sci-fi/actioner with Peter Weller inspires Basil Poledouris to create powerful music: otherworldly for creation of Robo, emotional for Robo's memories, riveting for explosive action set-pieces. Intrada also presents first-ever assembly of complete end credits on CD, as well as restoring cues to proper chronological order. Advertisement sequences (trademarks in numerous Verhoeven films) are scored by Poledouris and included in sequence as they comment on scenes outgoing or incoming. Intrada presents complete score in vibrant stereo, newly re-mixed and re-mastered from recently-discovered original 2" 24-track session masters plus 1" 8-track electronic session mixes, all stored in mint condition, courtesy MGM. Informative liner notes from Jeff Bond complete exciting package.

È ancora possibile oggi vivere un periodo di tristezza provocata da un grave lutto o da una pesante delusione amorosa senza ritrovarsi immediatamente inquadrati in una diagnosi di depressione, con conseguente intervento di uno specialista e di una terapia farmacologica? La normale tristezza può dunque rimanere distinta dalla depressione? Il drastico cambiamento diagnostico degli ultimi decenni, che sembrava dover fornire alla psichiatria criteri oggettivi di valutazione, ha avuto l'effetto collaterale di qualificare casi di naturale tristezza, dovuta a situazioni di vita, come patologici stati d'animo, con inevitabili errori di medicalizzazione. In questo libro Horwitz e Wakefield inseriscono la tristezza in un quadro evolutivo, illustrando la crisi della cultura attuale che ha comportato il quasi totale disconoscimento di un sentimento umano e la dispensa a piene mani di qualificazione di patologia psichiatrica, la quale a sua volta non viene adeguatamente trattata.

With explosive new evidence this film tells the full story of the D'Oliveira scandal, explaining the critical political role that cricket played in bringing about the fall of apartheid in South Africa. In 1968, Basil D'Oliveira, a brilliant 'coloured' cricketer from South Africa who had made his home in the UK, found himself at the centre of a row that rocked the English political and sporting establishment. Excluded from the England team to tour South Africa - apparently because of his race - the 'D'Oliveira Affair' led directly to the sporting isolation of South Africa, which became crucial in bringing about the fall of the apartheid system of white rule in South Africa. Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous events of 1968, this documentary tells the story of Basil D'Oliveira and his betrayal by the English establishment, as D'Oliveira himself speaks out for the first time.

Skeptikern sei garantiert: Weill wurde nicht verfälscht. Aber in der fetzigen Interpretation durch die Band, vor allem durch Horwitz´ markante und wandlungsfähige Stimme, durch seinen frechen Zugriff auf Text und Musik bekommen diese viel geliebten Songs etwas ungemein Heutiges (…) Zum Auftakt eine kurze Verbeugung vor dem Original (und) dann geht´s los – so rasant, so keß, gleichsam auch so sensibel und zart, insgesamt so unvorhersehbar, daß es einem mitunter scheint, als würde man etwa das Eifersuchtsduett oder das Lied der Seeräuberjenny zu ersten Mal hören.
