Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Harold Ashby's a tremendous tenorist – almost like Von Freeman or Buck Hill, in that he had years of experience before getting a bit of wider experience on records – thanks to albums like this! The set's got Ashby's great raspy tone in perfect formation with a trio led by pianist Horace Parlan – himself experiencing a big new wave of exposure at the time, on some of his other Timeless sessions, which marked a move to spacious, more tradition-filled playing – which makes him a great partner for Ashby on this set!

Tea for the Tillerman is a highly-regarded album by singer-songwriter Cat Stevens. This album, Stevens' second during 1970, includes many of Stevens' most memorable and beloved songs by his fans, including "Where Do the Children Play?," "Hard Headed Woman," "Wild World," "Sad Lisa," "Into White" and "Father and Son." Four of the tracks ( "Where Do the Children Play?", "On the Road to Find Out", "Tea for the Tillerman" and "Miles from Nowhere" ) were featured in the Hal Ashby and Colin Higgins' black comedy film entitled Harold and Maude, in 1971, gaining Stevens more fans long afterward. The track "But I Might Die Tonight" was featured on another 1971 film: Deep End by Jerzy Skolimowski. Stevens, a former art student, created the artwork featured on the record's cover. With "Wild World" as an advance single, this was the album that brought Stevens world-wide fame. The album itself charted into the top 10 in the United States, where he had previously had few listeners.

The earliest work we've ever seen from Azie Mortimer – a hip album of vocal jazz tracks that predates some of her later soul material! Azie's got a really great style – lean, expressive, and with these great elements that really take her past more conventional jazz vocals – still inside, but with a cool groove that's definitely trying for more than the usual. Some moments have a 60s groovy swing, but still with a good deal of soul in the mix – and the set features arrangements by Mercer Ellington, and a group that includes Phil Woods on alto, Harold Ashby and Jerome Richardson on tenor, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Mundell Lowe on guitar. The best cuts include an uptempo version of "Milestones", plus readings of "On Green Dolphin Street", "Capricious", and "Whisper Not".

Silhouette in Red is the tenth studio album recorded by Bonnie Tyler, released in Scandinavia, Europe, and South Africa in 1993, and Japan and Brazil in 1994. Continuing her German label recording, she comes up with covers of two classics ("You Are So Beautiful" and "You Won't See Me Cry") in addition to 13 original hits. The album was moderately successful, reaching #6 in Norway and the top 40 in four other countries. The album was not released in America. According to Frank Farian's 2003 book about Dieter Bohlen, Stupid Dieser Bohlen, the bigger part of lyrics were re-written (uncredited on the album) by Dave Ashby, an English musician based in Hamburg, Germany.
