The first new studio recording in almost ten years by one of the most exhilarating ensembles in the ever growing Masada family. Together since 1994, their breathtaking virtuosity, extraordinary passion and telepathic interplay has increased over the years and now their performances set a new standard for excitement, concentration and commitment. Performing thirteen new compositions from Zorn’s legendary Book of Angels, these three brilliant musicians, under the “baton” of the composer himself present a varied program of delicate lyricism, poignant ballads and driving blasts of energy. New music for the new millennium drawing upon classical, jazz and gypsy folk traditions through the postmodern lens of Radical Jewish Culture.
Box set includes 3 albums: Big '80s, Essential '80s, '80s Hits, originally released in 1998 on the label Time Life Music, as part of the series "Sounds Of The Eighties". Contains 36 songs (all original recordings by the original artists, and digitally remastered) on three Audio CDs, packaged in a beautiful storage box with a rich leather-like finish and a wood frame.
A second series was shown from January 2005, with a third following in 2006 and then a two-part special in April 2007. The programme was created by writer David Kane, who also wrote the entire first series. The two-part special, unlike the previous series, was an independent production for BBC Scotland by Carnival Films.
In the second series the story centres on 500 year old anointed one Ella Dee, and Azazeal's son Malachi. The show was cancelled in April 2006 after the end of the second series. The second series shifts the focus from the departing Cassie Hughes (Christina Cole) to a new heroine, Ella Dee (Laura Pyper). Hex was filmed at Englefield House, a Tudor manor modified in the 18th and 19th centuries. Several external scenes in Series 2 were filmed in the city of St Albans (Hertfordshire), using locations such as the city centre, the Cathedral grounds and a small street adjacent to it.
Japanese limited edition issue in a deluxe LP sleeve replica of the original album artwork of the live album recorded in March 1974 and first released in 1990. Comes with a paper "obi" strip and a serial number. During a concert tour in the Midwestern United States in 1974, Badfinger learned that the Agora venue in Cleveland, Ohio, contained a 16-track studio capable of live recordings. The group had released five studio albums up to this point but had not made any professional live recordings. Deciding to utilise the equipment, Badfinger recorded two of their shows at the Agora. Due to audio distortion and essentially a moderate performance by the group, the tapes were not used at the time.
