Come è noto, Il gabinetto del dottor Caligari di Robert Wiene è stato all'origine dell'espressionismo cinematografico. Meno noto, forse, è che esso, con Metropolis di Fritz Lang, abbia costituito una visione obbligatoria per poter essere ammessi ai circoli socialisti della Cambridge degli anni Trenta del Novecento. Il giovane Raymond Williams, brillante studente del Trinity College, per amore del cinema e del socialismo, si sottopose al rito iniziatico.
Keeping the songs short and to the point, Poco lets loose with a fine batch of material. This time out, they even cover the Becker-Fagen song “Dallas” with great verve.
Christine Perfect is the eponymous debut solo album of former Chicken Shack keyboardist/singer Christine Perfect (later known as Christine McVie). The album was released just after Perfect had left Chicken Shack, but before she joined Fleetwood Mac. It contained the Etta James song, “I’d Rather Go Blind”, which had earlier been a hit single for Chicken Shack.
Jackson Browne faced the nearly insurmountable task of following a masterpiece in making his second album. Having cherry-picked years of songwriting the first time around, he turned to some of his secondary older material, which was still better than most people’s best and, ironically, more accessible — notably such songs as “These Days,” which had been covered six times already, dating back to Nico’s Chelsea Girl album in 1967, and “Take It Easy,” a co-composition with the Eagles’ Glenn Frey that had been a Top 40 hit for the group in 1972.
Essential: a masterpiece of Jazz-Fusion music
One of the most elegant and smooth jazz albums I ever heard
Oregon jazz band from USA, created a very unique album in my opinion with a lots of unusual instruments for this kind of music, like Sitar, Tabla, Flugelhorn and Oboe and give a new dimension to the jazz music.
The third biggest-selling album in the group’s history, Crazy Eyes is also the group’s liveliest and most bracing work and contains some of their most soulful music. In short, it’s the fruition of everything they’d been working toward for four years.
