On the 13th Day is the 17th studio album from the rock group Magnum (including Keeping the Nite Light Burning and ignoring Evolution), which was released in September 2012, under the label of Steamhammer Records/SPV. The album entered the charts at number 3 in the UK Rock & Metal Charts, number 5 in the UK Indie Charts, number 28 in the German Album Charts, #36 Swedish Album Charts, #43 UK Album Charts during its first week, making it their most successful album since their reformation in 2002 at the time of its release.

Prometheus is an original motion picture soundtrack to the 2012 science fiction film of the same name. Written by German composer Marc Streitenfeld, the soundtrack also features two supplemental pieces by English composer Harry Gregson-Williams, and it was conducted by Ben Foster. Since working as music supervisor on Ridley's Scott's 2005 film, Kingdom Of Heaven, Scott has called on Marc Streitenfeld to score all of his subsequent movies including A Good Year, Body Of Lies, Robin Hood and American Gangster, for which he was nominated for a BAFTA. Prior to his work as a composer, Streitenfeld had collaborated with Scott as music editor, music supervisor and technical score advisor on several projects, including Matchstick Men, Black Hawk Down and Gladiator.
A totally excellent bit of funk from Chico Hamilton – working with a great group that more than helps their leader live up to the album's title! The record's a real lost gem – and it's got Chico working in much funkier territory than before, grooving with complicated rhythms, and a heavy sound that features lots of work on organ and guitar. Lowell George (of Little Feat fame) is playing slide guitar in the group, giving the sound a great, muddy propellant – which only gets stronger with the help of Simon Nava and Sam Clayton on congas, plus heavy organ and piano by Stu Garner, Jerry Aiello and Bill Payne. Includes the killer Latin groover "Conquistadores 74", plus "Stu", "Feels Good", "Fancy", "Stacy", Gengis" and "I Can Hear The Grass Grow".
Singer and guitarist Joe Brown demonstrates his supreme uke skills on this definitive album. The deluxe edition features new studio recordings not found on the original album and comes with a special live CD.
Francis Lickerish is what anybody will call a renaissance man, after his successful experience as composer, guitar and lute player in the cult band The Enid, changes the stage for the university graduating as therapist pursuing a successful career as counselor, group therapist, workshop leader and trainer, working with a very broad client base that includes street drinkers, criminals, film stars and royalty. But the music always remains in him using it as part of his therapy, and in 2009 surprises the Prog commute when as a member of Secret Green releases the amazing "To Wake the King", clearly oriented towards Prog Folk. When everybody expected more albums from this band Francis Lickerish releases his first solo album called "Far And Forgot - From The Lost Lands"…
