The seven members of the Bastion Club have served loyally in the perilous service of the Crown. Now they've banded together to support one another through their most dangerous mission of all: getting married.

When Charles St. Austell returns home to claim his title as earl, and to settle quickly on a suitable wife as well, he discovers that experience has made him impatient of the young ladies who vie for his attention – with the exception of Lady Penelope Selborne. Years ago, Charles and Penelope's youthful ardor was consummated in an unforgettable afternoon. Charles is still haunted by their interlude, but Penny refuses to have anything more to do with him.

If controlling her heart was difficult before, resisting a stronger, battle-hardened Charles is well nigh impossible, yet Penelope has vowed she won't make the same mistake twice, nor will she marry without love. But when a traitorous intrigue draws them together, then ultimately threatens them both – will Penny discover she has a true protector in Charles, her first and only love, who now vows to make her his own?

Game of Thrones fans watch in delight as the epic battle of Lannister and Stark entangles the Seven Kingdoms.

Druids, Catholics, and even Zoroastrians wander through Westeros, reframing their religions for a new world of fantasy.

Greatest all-round musical figure of the 20th century, who achieved monumental status as a composer, bandleader, arranger, and instrumentalist. Duke Ellington was the most important composer in the history of jazz as well as being a bandleader who held his large group together continuously for almost 50 years. The two aspects of his career were related; Ellington used his band as a musical laboratory for his new compositions and shaped his writing specifically to showcase the talents of his bandmembers, many of whom remained with him for long periods. Ellington also wrote film scores and stage musicals, and several of his instrumental works were adapted into songs that became standards…

MP3 (CBR 320 kbps) | 01:16:20 | 190 MB
Genre: Folk-Rock, Progressive Folk | Label: Nixed Records

A major find for Fairport fanatics, this collects 23 unreleased performances from the late '60s in acceptable-to-excellent fidelity, mostly from the BBC (with a few tracks from TV clips, and one 1968 studio outtake). Running 77 minutes, it's divided roughly equally between the Judy Dyble and the Sandy Denny eras. Only one of these songs ("Reno, Nevada") shows up on the official comp of early Fairport BBC cuts, Heyday. And even then, this is a much different version than the Heyday take of "Reno, Nevada," running seven minutes and featuring some dazzling psychedelic guitar riffs.

Ballads? What ballads? They don't need no stinkin' ballads. Actually, most of these aren't true ballads, which are defined as either romantic/sentimental songs ("Rainbow Demon" darlin'?) or songs that repeat the same melody from stanza to stanza (think of that guy playing the acoustic guitar in Animal House). Uriah Heep did eventually write honest-to-goodness ballads, some of which are featured here: "Your Turn to Remember," "Free Me," and "Come Back to Me."…
