An excellent altoist and soprano-saxophonist, Brandon Fields mostly plays commercial music on this set. On "Studio Cafe Blues," he shows what he can do in a creative jazz context, but otherwise the music is rather mundane, with long melody statements, unimaginative rhythms, and a great deal of safe playing; this version of John Coltrane's "Equinox" is a misfire. Although there are some moments of interest (Fields does attractive tones on his instruments, and the musicianship of the players is high), Brandon Fields has shown elsewhere that he is capable of much better.
This box contains 16 Apple Records albums, originally issued between 1968 and 1974. There is also a brand-new single compilation Come And Get It: The Best Of Apple Records.

Emmylou Harris was a little-known singer and songwriter playing the folk circuit in Washington, D.C., when she was discovered by Gram Parsons, who invited her to sing on his solo albums and revealed to the world she had a voice of striking beauty and the talent to use it wisely. After Parsons' death, Harris embarked on a solo career that saw her creating a series of outstanding albums that combined the sound and style of classic country music with a progressive feel that made her one of the best respected artists of her generation. This specially priced box set includes Harris' first five albums for Reprise Records in full, featuring some of her most compelling studio recordings. Included in this set are 1975's Pieces of the Sky, 1975's Elite Hotel, 1977's Luxury Liner, 1978's Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town, and 1979's Blue Kentucky Girl.
A talented altoist influenced by David Sanborn, Brandon Fields has the versatility to be able to play both R&B/crossover and hard bop. Fields grew up in Orange County, CA, and started playing alto when he was ten. A freelance musician since he was a teenager, Fields moved to Los Angeles in 1982 and has worked steadily ever since. He toured with George Benson in 1985, was a regular member of the Rippingtons, has long been a busy session player, and recorded CDs as a leader for Nova and Positive.
Guns N' Roses - "The Spaghetti Incident?" is the fifth studio album by Guns N' Roses. The album is unique for the band, consisting entirely of cover versions, mostly of glam/punk rock songs of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Many of the tracks were recorded with original Guns N' Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin during the Use Your Illusion I and II sessions and then were later re-recorded by Gilby Clarke. Those tracks were previously intended to be included in a combined Use Your Illusion album, consisting of three (or possibly even four) discs, instead of the two separate discs they ended up being.
DAVID BOWIE David Bowie Box (Deleted 2007 UK strictly limited edition 10-CD box set comprising 5 x 2-CD sets of the albums 'Outside', 'Earthling', 'Hours', 'Heathen' & 'Reality'; all with Bonus Discs containing remixes from Moby, Marius deVries & more, bonus material [previously released on special editions], extra tracks from single releases and covers of classics such as 'Waterloo Sunset'; all presented in mini LP-style card picture sleeves complete with individual booklets and housed in a picture slipcase. While late-period Bowie was more a stylistic interpreter than the innovator of the 1970s, this collection has many high points, notably a version of the Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset" and a series of reworkings of the artist's own "Rebel Rebel."
