(180 gr. schwarzes Vinyl im Standard-Cover mit DL-Card) John Oates, eine Häflte der der legendären Hall & Oates, legt eine Americana-Platte vor. Klassischer Delta & Country Blues und Ragtime, dazu neue Stücke von Oates, die sich nahtlos einfügen.nnJohn Oates, eine Häflte der der legendären Hall & Oates, machte endlich die Platte, die er immer machen wollte. Arkansas ist eine Americana-Platte. Von seinem neuen Heim in Nashville, Tennesse aus tauchte er eine Dekade lang tief in die Geschichte der Roots-Musik. Es gibt Interpretationen von Emmett Millers Anytime von 1924 oder den Jimmie Rodgers Tune Miss the Mississippi and You von 1932. Traditional Delta, Country Blues und Ragtime huldigen Mississippi John Hurt und Blind Blake. Dazu kommen neue Stücke von Oates, die sich nahtlos einfügen. The sonic glue that holds the project together is called The Good Road Band. The impressive lineup consists of legendary mandolin players Sam Bush, pedal steel innovator Russ Pahl, world famous electric guitar picker Guthrie Trapp, bass veteran Steve Mackey, cello virtuoso Nat Smith, and the groove of percussionist Josh Day. Combine that ensemble with Oates' warm and personal storytelling, and you have a one-of-a-kind experience that is authentic and unforgettable. The project originally began as a tribute to Oates' idol, Mississippi John Hurt . It evolved organically, during a series of Nashville recording sessions, into a unique, retrospective collection drawing from a wide range of Oates' musical influences. Asked about the style and sound of Arkansas, he say's , It's like Dixieland dipped in bluegrass and salted with Delta blues. The title track is propelled by a driving production that frames evocative images of the mist rising off the mighty Mississippi River and the expansiveness of the cotton fields in America's heartland. With the essence of roots music at its core, vintage and modern recording techniques are woven throughout the album. With this incredible band, Oates shines a light on popular songs from America's past long before the birth of rock 'n' roll. TRACKS: 1. Anytime 2. Arkansas 3. My Creole Belle 4.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! XTC is a song with words and music written by the English composer Edward Elgar in 1930. It was his last song. Elgar's sketches for the accompanying music were written separately from the words. At the end of the sketches he wrote "Fine del songs November 11th 1930". The song was pieced together by the pianist-musicologist David Owen Norris from sketches he found at the composer's birthplace. The first performance was on the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth, 2 June 2007, at the Royal Academy of Music in London, sung by soprano Amanda Pitt, accompanied by David Owen Norris. Sir Edward William Elgar, 1st Baronet, OM, GCVO (2 June 1857 23 February 1934) was an English composer. He is known for such works as the Enigma Variations, the Pomp and Circumstance Marches, The Dream of Gerontius, concertos for violin and cello, and two symphonies.
A NEWLY RE-MASTERED 4 CD CLAMSHELL BOXED SET FEATURING THE LEGENDARY FIRST FOUR ALBUMS BY TANGERINE DREAM RELEASED BETWEEN 1970 – 1973CDs OF EACH ALBUM IN REPLICA WALLETSINCLUDES POSTEREsoteric Recordings’ Reactive label is pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered 4 CD clamshell boxed set which gathers together the first four legendary albums by Tangerine Dream, originally released on the Ohr label in Germany between 1970 and 1973, known by fans as “The Pink Years” albums.“Electronic Meditation” was recorded in Berlin in October 1969 and featured the first Tangerine Dream line-up of Edgar Froese (guitars, organ, tapes, sound effects), Klaus Schulze (drums, percussion) and Conrad Schnitzler (cello, violin, typewriter). Upon its release in 1970 the album would define a genre of music and herald the massive creative musical explosion that would emerge in Germany in the early 1970s.“Alpha Centauri” was recorded at the Dierks studio in Stommeln and featured a line-up of Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Steve Schroyder with guests Udo Dennebourg (flute) and Roland Pualyck (synthesiser). Released in 1971 the influence of the album was immense, with the band creating imaginative soundscapes previously unheard on record.“Zeit”, released in August 1972, a double album with one lengthy track per side, was recorded at the Dierks studio once again and featured a guest appearance by Florian Fricke of another legendary ambient German group, Popol Vuh. One of Tangerine Dream’s finest early albums, “Zeit” was enthusiastically championed in the UK by DJ John Peel and was the group’s major breakthrough.“Atem”, released in 1973, was the band’s last release on the Ohr label & heralded the beginning of Tangerine Dream’s wider international acclaim. “Atem” enjoyed success outside of Germany and eventually led to the group signing to the newly formed Virgin label later in 1973.This clamshell box of “The Pink Years Albums 1970 – 1973” features “Electronic Meditation”, “Alpha Centauri”, “Zeit” and “Atem” packaged in replica card sleeves and also includes a poster.DISC ONE:ELECTRONIC MEDITATIONNEWLY RE-MASTERED1.
