Drawing on over 30 years of experience playing the country-blues, complete with tutorials from some of the undisputed masters, it comes as no surprise that Stefan Grossman can so consistently conjure up the authentic spirit of the music with each successive release. His original compositions show Grossman to be the most confident of guitarists in his genre, effortlessly borrowing from the stylings of Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, and Blind Willie McTell among various others. While his playing isn't overly flashy, it need not be. The precision and craftsmanship injected into the fluid, rolling original "Yazoo Strut," the harder blues groove of "Spider Web Blues," and a powerful rendition of Reverend Gary Davis' "Candy Man" are country blues at its very best.

Billy Preston’s debut album for Apple Records was his vocal album debut too. Before this Billy was renowned merely as a wizard instrumentalist. Here, his impassioned vocals help create one of the best soul records of the 1960s. Produced by George Harrison, That’s The Way… expands Billy’s palette of gospel and R&B to embrace rock elements brought in by A-list players Keith Richards, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton.

Ali Handal’s fourth album That’s What She Said (now out on Red Parlor Records) says plenty about this girl rocker who pulls no punches even while she spins out tightly constructed songs. Occupying a space roughly between Melissa Etheridge and Bonnie Raitt with the bluntness of Ani DiFranco, Handal’s a confessional singer-songwriter in a world overflowing with them but she stands above the pack with her rather good guitar playing and a bevy of attitude. By the time the album ends gracefully with the astral “Last Lullaby,” there’s a strong sense of knowing this artist personally well.

An epic masterpiece of silent cinema, sanctioned by the Bolsheviks to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Russian Revolution of October 1917. It serves as a record of the ten dramatic days in which the Bolsheviks brought down the government and stormed the tsar's Winter Palace, and employs a cast of thousands in its recreation. This is a re-edited version with a soundtrack by Dimitri Shostakovich.
