Released to coincide with the international singing group's 20-city North American tour of the same name (it's also their first ever full-on symphony orchestra tour), 2014's Holiday Symphony finds Celtic Thunder rumbling through a set of Yuletide selections that are delivered with group's usual mix of elegance and orchestral bombast. The 18-track set features an engaging mix of holiday standards like "Away in a Manger," "Carol of the Bells," and "O Come All Ye Faithful," and more eclectic offerings like a cover of the Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" and a lovely rendition of the sacred polyphonic 16th century Latin Christmas carol "Gaudete."

This powerful anthology features digitally re-mastered versions of legendary live broadcasts by Kiss during the halcyon years from their first commercial breakthrough in 1974 through to the launch of their greatest hits album in 1988. KISS were formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. From the birth of the band a notable part of the act were the striking face paint and stage outfits worn by the members. The group swiftly rose to prominence on a wave of hard won publicity and their live performances grew ever more elaborate. Eventually fire breathing, blood-spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits, and assorted pyrotechnics were incorporated into a stage act which understandably helped the group achieve legendary status.

Multi-instrumentalist & vocalist Slim Gaillard's joyous music appealed to adults and little children alike, with songs about love, traveling, potato chips, beer, and everything in between. Searching For You: The Lost Singles of McVouty (1958-1974) is the first collection of new Gaillard music officially released with the endorsement of the Gaillard family in decades. Very little is known about the label sources (i.e., Putti Records, SGM Records, Delgado, Blue Chip Records, etc.), but they all seem to have been made for companies likely owned by Slim that he was sending out to A&R men and radio stations trying to score regional hits. Most tracks in this collection come from co-producer Tom Samuels, who won a series of eBay auctions containing rare 45s.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Jazz sessions with Toots Thielemans are always a treat, and this album's no exception – one that features Toots' guitar and harmonica in the company of some great younger players from the 70s European scene! The set was produced by Chris Hinze, who also plays flute on the record – and other group members include Philip Catherine on guitar, Joachim Kuhn on keyboards, and the mighty rhythm team of John Lee on bass and Gerry Brown on drums – all musicians who lay back beautifully here, and really stick to the spacier side of their talents! Given that Toots is on harmonica on most numbers, the sound is wonderfully gentle – hardly the heavy fusion workout you might expect from the lineup, although there's a few subtle doses of funk that are much appreciated.

The album is a live recording of his second of two concerts on 18 January 1974 at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Wakeman performs with the London Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Choir, and a group of hand-picked musicians for his rock band, which later became the English Rock Ensemble.
