Essentially an offshoot of Manfred Mann's 1966 Instrumental Asylum EP, this is every bit as enjoyable (if not quite as interesting) as those sides. Mike Vickers' goal long before he joined Manfred Mann was to be a conductor, arranger, and composer, and also to work in a jazz idiom.

During WWI, Ann Vickers, a humanitarian who is just starting the adult phase of her life, wants to make a difference in the world - using her friend Dr. Malvina Wormser as a role model - but she also wants a fulfilling personal life. She isn't sure if she can accomplish both at the same time. So after a failed relationship with soldier Captain Lafe Resnick which includes a deeper personal tragedy for her, Ann decides instead to focus solely on her career. With a background in nursing and social work, she decides the area of her work will be in prison reform. Her lofty goals do not sit well with many of the male traditionalists in the field, they who may stop her from accomplishing what she wants, at her own personal reputation at risk.

Cavalleria Rusticana: Magnificently sung, subtly played and dramatically acted… The passion of Sicily, fanned into a bonfire by one of the world's most brilliant conductors and great cast (New York Post).
Pagliacci: An interpretation of exceptionally strong emotions and artistic quality (Il Giorno). Vickers is outstanding, delivering 'Vesti la giubba' with unusual sensitivity and admirable restraint. Kabaivanska and Glossop are also impressive (New York Times).

Herbert von Karajan directed this film of Verdi's Shakespearean masterpiece as well as conducting the Berlin Philharmonic. As the tragic Moor of Venice, arguably his greatest role, Jon Vickers (in the words of critic David Cairns) "commands both the notes and the moral grandeur of the part… And he has the aura of greatness - greatness of heart, of bearing, of musical and dramatic conception". Mirella Freni is a heartbreakingly lovely and fragile Desdemona, while the fine English baritone Peter Glossop plays the villainous Jago.

This spectacular opera film was taped in 1967 and is based on the 1966 Salzburg Festival production directed by Herbert von Karajan himself, who also conducts the fabulous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The production features the three greatest exponents of their respective roles at the time: Grace Bumbry’s magnificently seductive-toned Carmen, Mirella Freni’s ineffably lovely, touching Micaëla and Jon Vickers’s thrillingly manic-depressive Don José.

On July 25 1915 the first squadron of any air arm created specifically as a fighter unit, and equipped exclusively with a single type, arrived in France. The unit was No.11 Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps and the aeroplane was the Vickers Fighting Biplane No.5. In pre-war days, the pusher was dubbed the 'Gun Bus', an unofficial soubriquet it has borne ever since, and it remains one of the immortals of WWI aviation history. The Victoria Cross was awarded to just 19 airmen in The Great War, one of these went to 2nd Lieutenant Gilbert Insall, a FB5 pilot of No.11 Squadron, for an action on November 7 1915 when with his observer/gunner Air Mechanic T H Donald he brought down an Aviatik. Following their attack the FB5 crew themselves were brought down by ground fire over German-held territory, Insall making a good landing, after which they were subjected to heavy shellfire until darkness fell. The airmen managed to repair the FB5's holed fuel tank and at dawn flew back to their airfield at Bertangles. Donald wa s awarded a DCM. This is the first ever monograph to be published on the Vickers FB5, a pictorial tribute which is long overdue…
