Ich verkaufe hier nacheinander CDs aus meiner alten Sammlung, für die ich keine Verwendung mehr habe. Die CDs stehen teilweise schon jahrelang im Regal, ohne dass ich sie noch höre. Viele davon sind schon 20 oder 30 Jahre alt und wurden immer pfleglich behandelt.
29 Jahre alt! "Oiche Chiun (Silent Night)" ist eine Single, die zu Weihnachten 1988 in Japan veröffentlicht wurde! Oiche Chiun (Silent Night) / Orinoco Flow Irisch, Keltisch, Traditionell, Christmas, Pop, Ballade.
Cast Your Fate to the Wind (1966) would be the third and final platter that Shelby Flint (vocals) would record during the 1960s. It also marked somewhat of a departure from the style of her previous two LPs, Shelby Flint (1961) and Shelby Flint Sings Folk (1963).
Kate Bush's first album, The Kick Inside, released when the singer/songwriter was only 19 years old (but featuring some songs written at 15 and recorded at 16), is her most unabashedly romantic, the sound of an impressionable and highly precocious teenager spreading her wings for the first time.
This CD is re-release of an LP issued in 1997 by Nonesuch. It is probably one of the most known and most sold shakuhachi records in the West. When one looks around for Japanese music, it may be the one found the most often.
A typical performance of a p'ansori can last over eight hours, so this single disc is just a sampling of the art little known outside Korea. While the unusual vocal gymnastics and highly percussive instrumentation may not be appealing to all Western ears, this is an important document of a timeless art.
The second album Judee Sill made proved to be her last. This brief though enjoyable outing took its toll on Sill -- a notoriously slow songwriter -- during its making, turning her back to her recently kicked heroin addiction and away from the desire to create more music.
Decades before the MTV Unplugged phenomenon took off, Delaney and Bonnie recorded an album's worth of tunes in just that acoustic fashion. Delaney and Bonnie even had a hit single here, with "Never Ending Song of Love.".
Reworking glam rock themes with avant-garde synth flourishes, and reversing the process as well, Bowie creates dense but accessible music throughout Scary Monsters. Though it doesn't have the vision of his other classic records, it wasn't designed to break new ground -- it was created as the culmination of Bowie's experimental genre-shifting of the '70s.
When Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse was first released in 1971, so the legend goes, Spiro Agnew himself called Atlantic Records to complain about the album's incendiary lyrics. Promotional efforts dried up, and since then, the album has become one of the great rare gems of the funk era.
Gone were the murky, over-produced set pieces that clogged 2000's Brave New World and in their place fell blistering slabs of Piece of Mind-era metal. That trend continues with their 14th full-length album, Matter of Life and Death, a more elaborate and meandering experience than Dance of Death, but a rewarding one for fans willing to indulge the group's occasional excess.
Even though it contained no hits, The Man Who Sold the World, for most intents and purposes, was the beginning of David Bowie's classic period. Working with guitarist Mick Ronson and producer Tony Visconti for the second time Bowie developed a tight, twisted heavy guitar rock that appears simple on the surface but sounds more gnarled upon each listen.
On the basis of Tonight, it appears that David Bowie didn't have a clear idea of how to follow the platinum success of Let's Dance. Apart from the single "Blue Jean," none of the material equals the songs on Let's Dance, but it's appealing pop-soul and dance stylings helped make Tonight another platinum success.
This was the album that made Lopez explode nationally, reaching number two, staying in the Top 40 LP charts for about a year, and yielding the hit "If I Had a Hammer.". What he did, at the head of a trio with Mickey Jones (later to play briefly with Bob Dylan) on drums and Dick Brant on bass, was to make folk-pop swing.
The Wonder Who?., which was the group under a pseudonym, scored a novelty hit in the fall of 1965 with a cover of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice" on which Valli impersonated the 1940s jazz singer Rose Murphy to comic effect.
So we haven't. However, this LP was made with the accent on heavy music. So sit back and listen and try and decide if you can find a small place in your heads for it.". But he was also preparing listeners for the weakness of the material on an album that sounds somewhat thrown together.
Originally released as Man of Words/Man of Music, Space Oddity was David Bowie's first successful reinvention of himself. Bowie actually attempts a variety of styles on Space Oddity, as if he were trying to find the ones that suited him best.
However, their next two efforts didn't fare quite as well, and whether Maiden was choosing to repeat the same moves without as much imagination or consistency on 2003's Dance of Death, or becoming bogged down in tiresome prog rock excess on 2006's desultory A Matter of Life and Death, it seemed that neither playing it safe nor taking risks was a surefire recipe for success anymore.
Judee Sill's debut album (as well as the debut of the Asylum label) heralded a major new talent in the airy, contemporary folk world of the early '70s. The album employed the production skills of Sill's ex-husband Bob Harris, as well as ex-Turtle, ex-Leaves Jim Pons, and Graham Nash (on the album's sole single, "Jesus Was s Crossmaker").
In contrast to the 1970s -- when artists ranging from Curtis Mayfield to Parliament/Funkadelic were praised for their albums -- singles defined soul music in the 1960s. Reissued on CD in 1991, Knock on Wood is one of Eddie Floyd's best albums.
Hooking up with the Band, specifically Rick Danko and their producer John Simon, was one of the smartest moves Bobby Charles ever made. His subsequent eponymous album on Bearsville not only gave him a bigger audience, but led to the perfect production for his sly, subtle blend of New Orleans R&B, rock & roll, and country.
David Bowie had dropped hints during the Diamond Dogs tour that he was moving toward R&B, but the full-blown blue-eyed soul of Young Americans came as a shock. Surrounding himself with first-rate sessionmen, Bowie comes up with a set of songs that approximate the sound of Philly soul and disco, yet remain detached from their inspirations; even at his most passionate, Bowie sounds like a commentator, as if the entire album was a genre exercise.
