Martha Reeves & The Vandellas - The Definitive Collection (2008)
XLD | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 390 Mb | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 160 Mb | Scans included
Soul, Pop-Soul, Doo-Wop, R&B | Label: Motown/Universal | # 006025 17773325 | 00:51:30

The Definitive Collection does an effective job of chronicling the majority of Martha & the Vandellas biggest hits from their first chart entry "Come and Get These Memories" in 1963 to their final one, "Honey Chile," in 1967. All of the familiar radio tracks such as "Heatwave," "Dancing in the Street," "Nowhere to Run," and "Jimmy Mack" are featured alongside several singles of equal quality that didn't get as much radio play upon initial release. While there are other, more exhaustive compilations, such as the double-disc set Live Wire! The Singles 1962-1972, this is the best concise overview of Martha & the Vandellas' career, containing the most hits on a single disc.

Martha High - Tribute to My Soul Sisters
Soul, Funk, R&B | WEB FLAC (tracks) & front cover | 51:03 min | 314 MB
Label: Record Kicks | Tracks: 13 | Rls.date: 2017

2017 release. The funky diva Martha High has been an integral part of James Brown's life and career for more than 30 years: she was his backing vocalist, hairdresser, payroll master and his always loyal and reliable confidant. The idea for this album was hatched back in 2014, whilst she was visiting the producer DJ Pari, head honcho of the Soulpower organization and tight collaborator of the soul legends Marva Whitney, The Impressions, Lyn Collins and many more.

Hélène Grimaud - Bach: Transcribed (2008)
EAC | FLAC (tracks+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 01:16:02 | 355 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Deutsche Grammophon | Catalog: 1426

Fitting her reputation for interpreting the keyboard repertoire in a big way, Hélène Grimaud presents her first recording of J.S. Bach's works with transcriptions by Ferruccio Busoni, Franz Liszt, and Sergei Rachmaninov, which were all intended to update the music for the modern grand piano. Because Grimaud's style is direct and robust, reminiscent of Martha Argerich, and the transcriptions are dramatically more pianistic than the originals, Bach purists should look elsewhere for more meticulous and historically informed performances of these Baroque pieces, perhaps on fortepiano or harpsichord.

The Messiaen celebrations come to an overwhelming climax with this superb 32-CD set of his complete works. The limited edition, from Deutsche Grammophon, is a one-of-a kind deluxe edition. The crowning gem of this box set is a performance of the two piano Visions de l'Amen with Olivier Messiaen and Yvonne Loriod, recorded in Paris in 1962.

EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+.cue+log) - 633 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 566 MB | Covers - 13 MB
Genre: Vocal Jazz | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Sony BMG (88697301262)

It's fitting that singer Billie Holiday began the most celebrated part of her career with Columbia in 1933, when the country was in the throes of the depression, and ended it in 1942, when the world was gripped by war. Her anguished delivery fit in perfectly with the times. As she projected the torments of her life through music, she gave us an escape from our own troubles, by reminding us of how bad life could get. Regardless, Holiday's sublime Columbia recordings, which originally appeared on the Brunswick, Vocalion and Okeh labels, are among the true treasures of jazz. The complete recordings were released a few years ago in a mammoth box set. This four CD collection pares the material down considerably, although the producers have not just taken the cream of the crop…

EAC Rip | FLAC (image+.cue+log) - 268 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 109 MB | Covers (6 MB) included
Genre: Progressive Folk Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Sakuntala Records (SAK-001)

First release from sublabel of Transubstans, dedicated to acid folk sounds. Barr is a smaller orchestra from Stockholm, with their first full lenght album. Pastoral sounds, gently performed, and well arranged songs. Plenty of acoustic guitars, mellow dual vocals, flutes, tablas etc, recorded in the deep wood to catch the right feeling. This is seriously recommended for friends of Heron, Gary Higgins, Pentangle, Espers etc, and of course really recommended.

After two very successful albums, in 2005 & 2006 released worldwide on three labels in different Territories of N. America, Japan and Europe (and garnering exceptional reviews around the world); Cloudscape is back with their third stunning album entitled “Global Drama”. This album will show a harder side of Cloudscape but, also a more atmospheric side blended with the unique Cloudscape sound they’ve established with their previous albums. Global Drama is definitely their most thought out album thus far.

Marseille has a reputation for being France's most culturally integrated city and remained calm when race riots plagued others in 2005 and 2007. It seems appropriate that a band like Watcha Clan should emerge from this milieu, but just as politics and art aren’t always great bedfellows, their socially progressive stance and multiple stylistic reference points don’t necessarily make for great music. For quite some time, some cultural commentators have insisted that 'fusion is future'; whether or not that's true, mish-mash isn't.
