Nick Saloman of the Bevis Frond once again invites us to join him in the obscure pleasures of little-known pop, R&B, and jazz instrumental sides of the '60s and '70s with this collection. A number of the selections featured on Return of the Instro-Hipsters are so obscure that even Saloman isn't sure just who is responsible for them (though he offers some educated guesses on the artists behind such names as Sharks, Oliver Bone, and the Masked Phantom), but there are a good share of solid grooves and kicky melodies to be found here from a number of gifted little-knowns. If you went to the movies in the '70s, "Soul Thing" by Tony Newman will sound familiar, while flautist Harold McNair solos over a Dave Brubeck-influenced piano groove on "The Hipster," Jerry Allen demonstrates new uses for game calls on "Fuzzy Duck," Thunder Road's synthesized version of "Peter Gunn" beats Art of Noise's variation on the theme by more than 15 years, "The Brooke Bond Beat" by Cliff Adams may be the most swingin' tea commercial ever, and the Outer Limits serve up some tough, moody rock, appropriately titled "Black Boots".
Over 62 per cent of adults in the UK are currently overweight or obese and this figure is set to rise. A common attitude is that obese people should be ashamed - it is their fault, they have no will power and if they could just 'eat less and exercise more', the problem would soon be solved. Yet, despite millions of pounds being spent on this simple message, the UK is getting fatter every year. Cambridge geneticist Dr Giles Yeo believes that for many obese people, simply eating less is a lot harder than you might think - and he is taking a road trip around the UK and America to uncover why.
So Far is the fourth album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, their third as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the first compilation album released by the group. Shipping as a gold record and peaking at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, it was the band's third chart-topping album in a row. It has been certified six times platinum by the RIAA.
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
This is the live record of the 2 UK's studio albums. The sound is only good. There are 2 new songs: "Night after night" and "As long as you want me here". The more accessible "Night after night" is not very complex, more diluted, so that it is a bit disappointing, although there is a very good organ solo.
Up to 90% of Britons with licences rate themselves as good drivers. So how come road accidents cost the UK a staggering 15 billion annually and almost 750,000 of us are injured each year? We're a nation full of people who think they can drive, but evidently a lot of us can't. Dom Littlewood and Cherry Healey set out to tackle the nations' bad driving habits. They're going to attempt to transform the driving habits of two British motorists whose terrible driving is putting both themselves and the public at risk. They've been nominated by their families who believe they are accidents waiting to happen, so Dom and Cherry enrol of the help of one the UK's most experienced driving instructors’ tackle their ingrained faults in new and surprising ways. Elsewhere in the show, Dom reveals the real dangers of bad driving when he joins the East Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Unit to discover how they bring criminal drivers to justice, and Cherry learns the truth about the serious risks we all run when we use our mobile phones in the car.
The Seekers weren't really the kind of group from whom most people ever expected to see a concert album – their hits seemed to have a very "produced," studio-focused sound that made live performance more a matter of re-creation, or so it seemed. But Live at the Talk of the Town is an extraordinary album, as well as the group's final effort together as a continuing organization, recorded during an engagement at the renowned London restaurant/theater just a week before the quartet was dissolved.
