This first collection of Sinatra's singles and B-sides with Nelson Riddle is also the best one. The album kicks off with the irrepressible 'I've Got the World on a String' and features such essential tracks as 'South of the Border,' 'The Gal That Got Away,' 'Learnin' the Blues,' and the movie themes 'Three Coins in a Fountain,' 'Young at Heart,' and 'The Tender Trap.' 'Rain' and 'Don't Worry 'Bout Me' are dark ballads good enough to be on one of Sinatra's 'wrist-slasher' LPs, and display a depth that many of his singles lack.

This compilation draws Christmas music from several recordings conducted by the late Herbert von Karajan, but emphasizes two of them, both from the 1960s: a collection of Baroque Christmas pieces in a mostly pastoral vein, and an LP on which he and the Vienna Philharmonic backed the great African American soprano Leontyne Price. Neither of these recordings is easy to obtain these days, and Karajan aficionados may well be pleased to have them in a single package. Beyond that, the Price pieces, from her heyday, are gorgeous.

The Poppies were a 1960s girl group formed and headed by Dorothy Moore and Fern Kinney. In early 1966, 'Lullaby of Love' by the Poppies peaked at #56 pop in the United States, and was a Top 30 single in Canada. An LP of the same title was released on Epic records. Later that year the group had another, but smaller, hit with 'He's Ready' which reached #106 pop. Two more singles were released but they did nothing. The last of their four Epic singles was 'There's A Pain in My Heart' which became a Northern soul classic and is heavily played in UK/Australian clubs.

Ray Charles was the musician most responsible for developing soul music. Singers like Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson also did a great deal to pioneer the form, but Charles did even more to devise a new form of black pop by merging '50s R&B with gospel-powered vocals, adding plenty of flavor from contemporary jazz, blues, and (in the '60s) country. Then there was his singing; his style was among the most emotional and easily identifiable of any 20th century performer, up there with the likes of Elvis and Billie Holiday. He was also a superb keyboard player, arranger, and bandleader. The brilliance of his 1950s and '60s work, however, can't obscure the fact that he made few classic tracks after the mid-'60s, though he recorded often and performed until the year before his death.

Three musician friends meet here for a programme devoted to Brahms’s musical testaments. The 20-year-old clarinetist Raphaël Sévère, blessed with a magnificent sonority, and Adam Laloum, whose first disc was dedicated to Brahmsian twilights, together demonstrate that, in the burnished autumnal colours of these sonatas, the composer chose the clarinet to bid a melancholy farewell to the world. Victor Julien-Laferrière joins them for the elegiac Trio Op.114.

Like many eponymous albums, Shakira's self-titled 2014 set marks a new beginning: a new album for a new label after she got a new job. The new job was as a co-host on the hit American televised musical contest The Voice, the new label was RCA, and the new album was her first full-fledged pop album since She Wolf, the rather brilliant, hard electronic dance record that stiffed in 2009. She bounced back in 2010 with Sale el Sol, but that album wasn't made with the U.S. market in mind, something that certainly can't be said of Shakira. Opening up with a duet with Rihanna, and later finding space for her Voice co-host Blake Shelton, Shakira is determined to appeal to all audiences here: don't like the relentless dance of "Dare (La La La)"? Stick around for the reggae collaboration with Magic! on "Cut Me Deep," or maybe the appealing faux-folk of "23" or the full-bore adult-pop assault of "The One Thing," which may be the best cut here.

This set represents Rafael Kubelik’s art in a wholly positive way. His Mahler and Dvorák cycles are very well-known. The Dvorák remains, along with those by Rowicki and Kertesz, one of the three reference editions of the complete symphonies, and the only one featuring a Czech conductor.
