A strange man, John Fahey, with an unusual set of guitar styles. This album, originally released on Riverboat Records and later reissued by Fahey's own Takoma label, has a lot of rough edges in terms of the recording but a tremendous amount of power when it comes to the music. Fahey was at the top of his game, alternately playful and dark, so there's never a dull moment. There is always something new to be heard on each playing.

"Italian conductor and musicologist Alberto Zedda is widely recognized as one of the world's most prominent authorities on the operas of Gioachino Rossini. (…) Although his work on behalf of Rossini remains widely appreciated, Zedda's handling of early opera composers has drawn criticism, particularly as he eschews period instruments and prefers to devise modern orchestrations for seventeenth century operas.

Lucky Numbers is the third album in three years for the self-declared The Ringmaster General after last year's release of the same name and 2011's The Blackbird Diaries. For Lucky Numbers, the singer, songwriter and guitarist assembled the same team of Nashville's finest that were on the previous two, though instead of working in co-producer/engineer John McBride's Nashville studio, Stewart shifted the recording sessions to a boat in the South Pacific. Like the previous two albums, Lucky Numbers combines Stewart's '60s British rock sensibilities growing up in the northeast of England with the veteran Nashville country musicians' southern blues. Players on Lucky Numbers include guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, pianist Mike Rojas, pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore joined by multi-instrumentalist Kieran Kiely, who played accordion, flute and, most notably, the Irish bodhrán drum that can be heard in the opening notes of the first single, "Every Single Night." The list of guest stars includes singers Martina McBride - "Every Single Night", Karen Elson - "Nashville Snow", Aussie pop diva Vanessa Amorosi - "What's Wrong With Me", Broadway star Laura Michelle Kelly and violinist Ann Marie Calhoun.

It is uncertain, who initially had the idea to provide the Texan blues musician Albert Collins with trademarks all linked to ice: to call himself „The Iceman“ and to name one of his main recordings of the late-70s „Ice picking“. Already the music made by the young Collins, born 1932 in Leona/Texas, was praised to be especially „cool“; and of course, when he performed on the tiny stage of „Onkel Pö‘s Carnegie Hall“ on Eppendorfer Lehmweg in Hamburg, he was joined by his band called „The Icebreakers“. Naturally, on this winter evening no cold barrier needed to be overcome, certainly not in the overcrowded „Pö“, where most probably (as so often) tropical temperatures will have prevailed. The extremely incited and enthusiastic blues community of Hamburg turned the evening into a glittering party in honour of the guest from Texas.

Se tutte le generazioni sono una generazione perduta, tutti i loro protagonisti si sono di volta in volta chiesti: come siamo arrivati fin qui? Ora se lo chiede Thomas, un trentenne che ha appena rapito un astronauta della NASA, l'ha chiuso in una base militare abbandonata sulla costa della California, e si prepara a interrogarlo. Ha delle domande precise e urgenti: che fine hanno fatto i grandiosi ideali di conquista dello spazio che avevano fatto sognare milioni di cittadini? Cosa è successo alle ambizioni della loro brillantissima generazione? Sono forse fallite? La risposta porta altre domande.
