At the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, athletes from countries that were once a part of the British Empire will battle for gold—but is the Commonwealth of Nations more than a legacy of another age?

Genre: Classical, Opera | Label: Pentatone | Catalog: PTC5186538

PentaTone's live recording of John Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles is billed as the world premiere recording, though it was preceded by the 1991 video recording of the Metropolitan Opera's production, which was conducted by James Levine and starred Teresa Stratas. Even so, this 2016 audiophile presentation of the LA Opera production, conducted by James Conlon, is a major event for opera lovers, especially since the Met's recording is difficult to find and performances of The Ghosts of Versailles are rare.

As the title suggests, this is the definitive edition of Etta James' Tell Mama long-player. For this single-disc release the original album is augmented with five previously unissued tracks – documented during James' four Muscle Shoals sessions circa '67-'68. The question of why a rural Alabama town became a conduit for some of the most memorable and instantly identifiable grooves may still be up for debate. The evidence exists in droves and Tell Mama could certainly be considered exhibit A. These sessions feature the same impact that would redirect several first ladies of soul. Notable among them are Dusty Springfield's Dusty in Memphis, Aretha Franklin's I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You) and to somewhat lesser acclaim, Jackie DeShannon's Jackie. Tell Mama showcases some of the unique and admittedly darker qualities of what might best be described as R&B noir. "I'd Rather Go Blind," "Steal Away," "I'm Gonna Take What He's Got" all exemplify the essence of the blues – making the best of a bad situation.

Nella rete di migliaia di nuovi mondi possibili dopo l’espansione dell’umanità, le colonie stanno lottando con determinazione per cercare la propria strada. Nell’ampio spazio tra la Terra e Giove, i pianeti interni hanno costituito un’alleanza provvisoria e molto instabile, perseguitati da una storia di lunghe guerre e forti pregiudizi duri a morire. All’equipaggio della navicella spaziale Rocinante spetta ora un compito davvero delicato: mantenere il più a lungo possibile la sempre più fragile pace. Ma il tutto sarà complicato da un imprevisto e, nel mondo della perduta colonia di Laconia, un nemico nascosto ha in mente oscuri progetti per l’intera umanità e vuole a tutti costi far prevalere il suo potere… Le nuove tecnologie stanno per scontrarsi con il passato e la tradizione, mentre la storia del conflitto tra gli uomini ritorna al suo antico schema di guerra e sottomissione. Ma in questo nuovo scenario la natura umana non è più l’unico nemico a preoccupare, perché anche le oscure forze che si stanno creando hanno il loro peso…

Come a Little Closer is a surprisingly effective mating of a distinctive singer with seemingly incongruous material and production. Helmed by Gabriel Mekler, who'd produced Steppenwolf and Three Dog Night, the record features Etta James supported by a slew of hotshot L.A. session men (including Little Feat's Lowell George). The song selection ranges from "St. Louis Blues" to Randy Newman's perverse "Let's Burn Down the Cornfield" to the dramatic, melismatic "Feeling Uneasy," in which the junk-hungry James improvised wordlessly over an otherwise blues progression. Here's more evidence that Etta is one of the most versatile vocalists of her era.

Life isn’t treating Red Ben well. He’s lost everything he held dear, including the love of his life. Still, at least he escaped the clutches of a malevolent spirit bent on total destruction. So there is that. Now Ben just wants to drink, and forget, and drink some more. But he can’t. Not yet…
