Aretha: A Woman Falling Out Of Love is a studio album by Aretha Franklin, her second since leaving Arista Records. It features duets with Ronald Isley, Karen Clark-Sheard, and her ailing son, Eddie Franklin. Duets with Richard Marx and Faith Hill were also recorded, but ultimately shelved. Although recorded in Detroit in 2006, it took the artist five years to find a distributor for the project. With little promotion, the disc peaked at #54 on Billboard 's album chart and dropped off the chart two weeks later, reportedly selling less than 20,000 copies in the USA to date. The disc's opening track, "How Long I've Waited", peaked at #91 on Billboard's R&B Chart.
Cardboard sleeve, digitally remastered re-release of Big Star's last album featuring all of their original members. Cardboard sleeve (mini LP) replicates original LP artwork with obi strip, printed inner and lyric sheet in Japanese & English. After Big Star released Radio City, they fell apart, leaving Alex Chilton to record in 1975 what was later released as 3rd (aka Sister Lovers). The album is strikingly different from everything Chilton created before or after. With pained outpourings such as the haunting "Holocaust," it holds its own against rock's greatest monuments to existential angst, from Tonight's the Night to Bryter Layter. It also ranks alongside the Beach Boys' SMiLE as perhaps the only "classic" album with no set sequence. (Chilton never bothered to sequence it because, upon its completion, no label wanted to release it.) It finally came out four years later, and since then, while it has appeared on several labels, no two have used the same track order.
Celtic Twilight is a compilation for those who like bagpipe singing, quiet and quiet flute sound, measuring guitar voice, playing the violin … Or rhythmic drums combat, sound of pipes, sonorous bagpipe voice and flute and guitar sound … All this there is in Celtic music. For those who are in the heart of a peaceful music that inspires calm or vice versa, music calling for battle or in a frenzied dance.
Faustina Bordoni was one half of Handel’s so-called ‘Rival Queens’ for just under three seasons (172628), and in 1730 she married Hasse in Venice – so Vivica Genaux’s recital of arias for Faustina by Handel and Hasse is such an obviously sensible idea that it’s amazing it hasn’t been done before. Quantz praised Faustina’s immaculate articulation and excellent trills – and Genaux lives up to that vocal artistry brilliantly with the copious trills and arching melodic phrases in the long but lovely ‘Piange quel fonte’ from Hasse’s Numa Pompilio.
