Having shaped their sound and imagery with three EPs for Monarchy Music and a demanding touring schedule, it's no surprise that Cold War Kids have more presence on their first full-length, Robbers & Cowards, than many bands do on their debut albums. Their evocative, oddly soulful vignettes contain shades of Spoon's sardonic, piano-driven rock; the insistent, jittery feel of One Time Bells-era French Kicks; the poetic, rumpled ramblings of the Walkmen; the stripped-down bluesiness of the White Stripes; and in their more theatrical moments, a ghostly trace of Jeff Buckley, as well as touches of folk and gospel…

Heavy metal acrobatics played with amazing dexterity can be a tricky thing. It's one thing to be able to be able to impress prog metal heads when you can slave away in the studio for extended periods, making sure that each arpeggio and double bass fill is impeccable. But what about when you have to deliver it on-stage? Well, it should come as no surprise that the Kamelot gentlemen have absolutely no problem replicating it all on their first-ever live effort, 2006's One Cold Winter's Night…
Irish Coffee – Irish Coffee (1971) Guerssen/GUESS072 – SP 180g Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Irish Coffee – Irish Coffee

Label: Guerssen/GUESS072 | Released: 1971 | This Issue: 2010 | Genre: Hard-Progressive

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Recently on a buying trip to Brooklyn I scored a bunch of great records, both originals and reissues. The reissue of this album on Akarma knocked me cold, and continues to every time I play it. Belgium had an underrated and fantastic music scene in the early 70s, but Irish Coffee are the most impressive group I’ve heard from there, no question. What makes this album a masterpiece is the hard driving guitar work juxtaposed with quality songwriting and a bit of the Czar/ Stonehouse/Asgard UK vibe to the tracks. Czar and Deep Purple come to mind often, as does surprisingly a bit of early Spooky Tooth, yet Irish Coffee managed to create their own sound.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Hooray! Another outstanding Renaissance album! Compared to the previous album “Ashes are burning”, the bass is more timid, but it still sounds as loud and bottom as Yes and Rush of the 70’s.

Late Cold War Literature and Culture: The Nuclear 1980s by Daniel Cordle
English | 10 Mar. 2017 | ISBN: 1137513071 | 244 Pages | PDF | 3.48 MB

This book analyses the 1980s as a nuclear decade, focusing on British and United States fiction. Ranging across genres including literary fiction, science fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, graphic novels, children’s and young adult literature, thrillers and horror, it shows how pressing nuclear issues were, particularly the possibility of nuclear war,
Humble Pie – Rock On (1971) A&M Records/SP 4301 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Humble Pie – Rock On
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: A&M Records/SP 4301 | Released: 1971 | This Issue: 1973 | Genre: Classic-Rock

On this, their second album for A&M, Humble Pie proved that they were not the “minor league Rolling Stones” as people often described them. Led by the soulful Steve Marriot, the Pie was a great band in every sense of the word.
Don McLean – Solo (1976) UAD 60139/40 – 2 LP/Original UK Sterling Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHzg

Don McLean - Solo
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 2gb & 500mb
Mastered At Sterling Sound By Greg Calbi
Label: United Artists Records/UAD 60139/40 | Released: 1976 | Genre: Country-Folk

Don McLean’s final album for United Artists was a musical tour de force, and the best self-contained account of the full breadth of McLean’s talent. Recorded live in England, in Manchester, Bristol, London, and Oxford, the 26 songs encompassed not only the artist’s best-known work, but also many of his personal favorites, among them works by other composers (including Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War”).

Crosby, Stills & Nash – CSN (1977) Atlantic/SD 19104 – 1st US Presswell Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Crosby, Stills & Nash – CSN
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Mastered By Howard Albert/Ron Albert
Label: Atlantic/SD 19104 | Release: 1977 | Genre: Country-Rock

What’s so instantly striking about Crosby, Stills and Nash’s CSN, their second group album in eight years, is that it sounds so much like the debut LP even though its makers are so vastly changed. Since CS&N, and later Y, were always at the vanguard of the conspicuous counterculture (always ready to hoist their tie-dyed freak flag at a moment’s notice), their current reflection and hesitancy are especially interesting. And, because the music is so eerily familiar, the album communicates a kind of time warp (imagine if we knew in 1969 what we know now) that’s compelling and troubling.
