Paul Brady – Welcome Here Kind Stranger
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Mulligan/LUN 024 | Released: 1978 | Genre: Irish-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of Folk music
Brady’s first solo album, Welcome Here Kind Stranger is his second (and final) folk recording prior to his embarking on a successful, long-term foray into the realm of mainstream rock. Its title is a phrase taken from one of the album’s songs: “The Lakes of Pontchartrain”. The album was initially released (vinyl and cassette) on Dónal Lunny’s Mulligan label (LUN024) in 1978 and was voted “Folk Album of the Year” by Melody Maker magazine. The album was never officially released on CD due to a breakdown in the relationship between Brady and the Mulligan label and remained out of print for many years, until finally re-mastered and released in 2009 on Brady’s own label, PeeBee Music.

Pop/Rock, Album Rock | EAC Rip | FLAC, Img+CUE+LOG+Full Scans-300dpi (PNG) | 38:20 Min | 293,16 Mb
Label: Rock Candy Records Ltd. (UK) | Released: 2008-12-22 (1983)

Originally released in 1983, this album was recorded in between the 2 Toto albums "IV" and "Isolation", and includes most of the Toto band members, plus almost all the best studioperformers of L.A. at the time (Tom Kelly, Billy Steinberg a.m.o). The songs are well written and powerfully recorded. The 2 best known songs are the title track "Taking A Cold Look" and "Alone". The last one was also released some years later by the band Heart, but I personally like this original version better. If you like the mid-80's AOR/Westcoast sound, this album is a MUST, and the sooner you buy it, the better - for you!

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
A sublime collection of wonderful timeless music to treasure.
Upon seeing the `New Age Collection’ tag on the front cover of Rick Wakeman’s `Country Airs’, I expected to find a disc full of faceless digital synths to backing sounds of nature and stormy rainforests. What a pleasure to find not a single cold machine, instead a stunning collection of solo piano pieces.
Planxty - After The Break (1979) Tara/TARA 3001 - IR Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Planxty - After The Break
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz / 900mb
Label: Tara/TARA 3001 | Release: 1979 | Genre: Irish-Folk

The gravest danger in the resurrection of Planxty was always that, in attempting to recreate the extraordinary verve and majesty of their original incarnation, they neglected natural current instincts and succeeded only in becoming a parody of their former selves. That they managed with ease to avoid this considerable pitfall alone makes this a great record.

Despite being major contenders for a decade, Trivium have made a habit of taking subtle detours with each album and never quite nailing their colours to one musical mast.

4.5 stars really!!!!
Having recently shocked and awed the JR/F world with two amazing albums (Hymn To The seventh Galaxy and Romantic Warrior), Return To Forever was riding high on the wave it had created, riding on Corea and DiMeola's incredibly fast playing, displaying a monstrous but cold virtuosity that would eventually have a lot of fans grinding their teeth. ADM's debut solo album was another monster that would enthral fans around the world. This writer bought the album within the month it came out, well before he would indulge in Nucleus of Liles' start of the decade masterpieces, so for a few years, this album represented what jazz-rock was all about. Although called a solo album, you'd swear this could yet another RTF album as all of the RTF members appears at one point or another on this album. Musically speaking, this album is a bit schizophrenic, as 2/3 pf it is pure jazz rock, while the last third is more eclectic, from Classical too.

First of all, the full title of this issue is "Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends; Ladies And Gentlemen, Emerson, Lake And Palmer"! Let it be shown in all of it's pompousness!
