The metal of the medal in a medley
Even though it (sort of) copied its layout AHM's successor did not top the charts, but instead it brought Floyd on the brink of greatness, just behind the bend. For some reasons, Meddle doesn't suffer of the same controversy than AHM did, which is rather strange, because it if has much higher and outstanding peaks, it is also much less even, because the lows on this album are simply awful. With that bizarre yet fascinating Hypgnosis artwork of mixing an ear and waterdrops on rippling the surface of calm waters, Meddle has not only a weird unnatural name, but the album was released in early 71 like its predecessor with the name and title on the cover, something that Crimson or Zep were also doing with success.

More or less?
With the commercial pop side now eluding Floyd's attempts, French cineaste Shroeder's proposition to create the soundtrack for his first film must've fallen from the skies, a bit as Zeus' gift. This project is instrumental in Floyd's middle career, definitely turning its back from the pop single market. Some progheads have problems considering this album a real Floyd album (some even pointing the group did as well), mostly due to the OSF letters printed on the intriguing psychedelic artwork. But there are a lot of real gems on More, some are even classic Floyd songs. If some people are put off by this, the shorter song format and the word Soundtrack are the culprits. Do indulge as this is a real Floyd album, because it is quite instrumental and experimental and very representative of Floyd's then-actual soundscapes.

All change
A slightly misleading title for this album, as it was actually the third release under the Renaissance name. In fairness though, the line up completely changed prior to the release of this album, which saw Annie Haslam take on vocal duties for the first time.

Hooray! Another outstanding Renaissance album! Compared to the previous album “Ashes are burning”, the bass is more timid, but it still sounds as loud and bottom as Yes and Rush of the 70’s.

Soundtrack – Barry Lyndon (1975) Warner Bros. Records/BS 2903 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Various – Music From The Soundtrack Of Barry Lyndon
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Warner Bros. Records/BS 2903 | Released: 1975 | Genre: Soundtrack

While not the entire score, which would be impossible to assemble on a double let along a single disc, the music contained herein from Stanley Kubrick’s stellar motion picture Barry Lyndon — that starred Ryan O’Neal in the only time he ever actually acted, as well as Marisa Berenson — is a mixed bag of the most delightful sort. With 19 selections on the CD — analogue recorded and remastered in pristine digital sound — the music here stands on its own as an eclectic yet moving collection of pieces that reflect the excesses of 17th and early 18th century cultural mores in royal courts, potato fields, and back alley dances. The main title theme is from Handel, his Sarabande, and is followed by Sean Ó Riada’s gloriously beautiful “Women of Ireland,” performed by the Chieftains, who dig in for a few more before being eased out of the mix by the British Grenadiers’ fife and drum corps.
Peter Murphy – Deep (1989) Beggars Banquet/9877-1-R – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Peter Murphy – Deep
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Mastered At Masterdisk
Label: Beggars Banquet/9877-1-R | Released: 1989 | Genre: Pop-Rock

Perhaps the stars were right, or perhaps his American company, flush from the unexpected success of Murphy’s former bandmates in Love and Rockets, just decided to give Murphy a well-deserved publicity push. Whatever it was, with Deep Murphy scored an honest to goodness American radio/MTV hit thanks to the tender, lively “Cuts You Up,” a love song with solid energy and an inspired vocal.
The Grateful Dead – Anthem Of The Sun (1968) Warner Bros. Records/WS 1749 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Grateful Dead – Anthem Of The Sun
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Warner Bros. Records/WS 1749| Released: 1968 | This Issue: 1978 | Genre: Psychedelic-Rock

On the Grateful Dead’s Anthem of the Sun the studio with its production work dissolves into live performance, the carefully crafted is thrown together with the casually tossed off, and the results are spliced together. The end product is one of the finest albums to come out of San Francisco, a personal statement of the rock aesthetic on a level with the Jefferson Airplane’s After Bathing at Baxters. To be sure, the album has its weak points, but as a total work it is remarkably successful, especially when compared to the first Dead album.

Appearing the timeless “Please Come To Boston”
Kenny Loggins’ second cousin hit the big time for a couple of months in 1975 with “Please Come to Boston,” a serviceable and sentimental soft rock gem from his second album, Apprentice (In a Musical Workshop).
