With early 2002's Under Rug Swept, Alanis Morissette returned to the rockin', raw emotion that made her one of music's most popular and recognizable artists, and a truly major force in rock. After the biggest selling album by a female artist in history, a triple-platinum followup and a gold live album, the much-anticipated--and for the first time self-produced-Under Rug Swept went #1 and platinum.
This is Fleetwood Mac's first album without longtime singer/songwriter/keyboardist Christine McVie as a full participant (she appears only as a guest musician), the album nevertheless harks back to the frothy sound of 1982's MIRAGE, if not the '70s L.A. studio-pop glory of RUMOURS.
One of rock's most popular andirespected bands, R.E.M. opens another chapteriin its acclaimed history with Reveal, its first albumiin nearly three years. Riding theicutting edge andiyet still R.E.M. rock, moody yet more uplifting than 1998's gold-certified Up, Reveal isitheilatest musical revelation from R.E.M.
In 1988, REM were a cult on the cusp of major success. In 1992 they were somewhere close to being the biggest band in the world. In 2003, they're marginalised again, a middle-aged institution purportedly on the wane. Still, uninformed listeners to In Time might find it tricky to work out which songs come from which era. The 18 singles collected here in non-chronological order show a band that's operated at a terrifyingly high standard throughout the period, so that less lauded songs like "The Great Beyond" stand proud alongside the familiar anthems from the early 1990s.
5.1 DVD AUDIO/CD DUAL DISC American Beauty was originally released by Warner Bros. in 1970 and is widely regarded as one of the high points of the Grateful Dead’s long career. The album showcases the Dead’s acoustic side and growing confidence in their vocal abilities -- as well as some of lyricist Robert Hunter’s greatest songs. “Truckin’,” “Box Of Rain,” “Ripple” and others here soon became staples of the band’s legendary live performances
Originally recorded in 1966, this album remains the definitive Frank Sinatra live performance with the backing of a full orchestra. The Count Basie Orchestra, under the direction of Quincy Jones, were the perfect match for Sinatra - the easy swing of the upbeat numbers, the assured vocals on the sad songs, and the playful improvisations and joking. Sinatra singing was rarely better - as shown on such classics as "Come Fly With Me", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Luck Be A Lady", and "I've Got You Under My Skin."
The Count Basie Big Band performing classic favorites. Tracks: Shiny Stockings, Lil' Darlin', You Got It, Dr. Feelgood, Four Five Six, Corner Pocket, Exactly Like You, Bring On The Raindrops, Whirly Bird, April In Paris, Jumpin At the Woorside, plus three addictional historic recordings
The controversial but memorable Tutu is mostly a duet between Miles Davis and the many instruments of producer Marcus Miller (although violinist Michal Urbaniak, percussionist Paulinho da Costa, and keyboardist George Duke are among the other musicians making brief apperaances) certainly Davis is in top form..
Rockabilly kings The Stray Cats arrived in the UK in 1980 and immediately hit the charts with such classics as ‘Runaway Boys’ and ‘Rock This Town’. This Dual Disc captures them on their 1988 reunion tour playing live at their optimum best.
