Originally released in the USA in 1984, Earthrise was an album by Richard Tandy and David Morgan, recorded and released after they finished touring as members of The Electric Light Orchestra. As a result of an interview with David for Rock Legacy, Tandy and Morgan felt the time was right to collaborate on a special edition re-issue CD on Rock Legacy Records. At Richard's suggestion, the billing has been changed to Morgan Tandy, to reflect David's role as songwriter, instrumentalist, vocalist and co-producer of Earthrise Special Edition.

After frequently expressing his displeasure with bootlegging of his live shows, Richard Thompson has taken on the profitable and rewarding sideline of issuing recordings culled from his concert tours, and Semi-Detached Mock Tudor was assembled from several shows recorded during a series of American East Coast dates in the fall of 1999, as Thompson and his band were supporting the album Mock Tudor…

Wizzard Brew is the first album by glam rock group Wizzard, released in March 1973. It reached a peak of No. 29 in the UK Albums Chart. In the United States, it was released by United Artists Records as Wizzard's Brew (with a different cover photo) and but failed to chart there. Roy Wood's debut Wizzard album. Newly remastered from the огiginal analogue tapes with 4 Top 10 hits, 2 no.1 sng1еs, rare b-sides and an all-timе Christmas classic. An explosive brew of Spectorish pop, dynamic rock 'n' roll & heavy metal сеllоs.
Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (fully compatible with standard CD player) and the latest remastering (24bit 192kHz). Carried by its almost impossibly infectious eponymous opening track, The Sidewinder helped foreshadow the sounds of boogaloo and soul-jazz with its healthy R&B influence and Latin tinge. While the rest of the album retreats to a more conventional hard bop sound, Morgan's compositions are forward-thinking and universally solid. Only 25 at the time of its release, Morgan was accomplished (and perhaps cocky) enough to speak of mentoring the great Joe Henderson, who at 26 was just beginning to play dates with Blue Note after getting out of the military.
