A rare black-and-white Maria Montez vehicle, Tangier can be described as a second-echelon Casablanca. Montez plays a Spanish dancer named Rita, who is determined to bring Nazi collaborator Colonel Jose Artiego (Preston Foster) to justice. Artiego is at presently working incognito, as military governor of the North African city of Tangier. Maria finds an unexpected ally in the form of Artiego's discarded mistress Dolores (Louise Allbritton). Dominating the film's hotel-lobby set is an old-fashioned "open" elevator, which will obviously figure prominently in the climax. A camp classic
Released in 1991, Stranded is the third (and final) album by hard rockers Tangier. Original vocalist Mike LeCompt is back on board for this album. The debut was straight-up AOR, but their sound gradually evolved until they became a fairly impressive bluesy rock band, sounding a lot like Tyketto at times. Some influences here by Whitesnake, Aerosmith, Cinderella with a strong bluesy dose and you have a very good record!
One of the most important recordings from the 1960s folk revival. Newly remastered featuring original artwork, five bonus tracks from two rare EPs and unpublished photographs.
Fresh from opening up for Natalie Cole on her 1993 tour, Ottmar Liebert will begin his own tour with the spectacular new release The Hours Between Night and Day. Breaking new stylistic ground, Liebert combines the intimacy of acoustic guitar with electric musicianship mixed with light touches of computer-added harmonies. Spanish flamenco, the signature sound so strongly associated with Liebert and Luna Negra, is still easily heard on this new title, perhaps nowhere so apparent as on the Spanish language Marvin Gaye classic "Mercy Mercy Me….". Album nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Age Album.
Joanna Dane, a former O.S.S. operator (forerunner of the CIA), is sent to Tangier by the American authorities to find out who is behind a powerful ring of smugglers that does a booming business in contraband with counterparts in Spain and Italy, and also contribute to a high death rate among the Tangier policemen. She gets work in a waterfront dive owned by "Frisco" and is soon being courted by Van Logan, another American agent but posing as one of the smugglers. Most of the action is set in Tangier, with a brief interlude in Spanish Gibraltar, and the climax is a gun battle between the Tangier civil police and the smugglers on the North African shore of the Mediterranean.
