A selection of highlights from Ringo's latter-day albums for Koch, 5.1: The Surround Sound Collection is designed as a sampler for audiophiles and it should please most of that crowd. This concentrates not on his steady stream of live recordings but rather his strong latter-day solo albums – records that draw heavily from the lush sound of latter-day Beatles, so they lend themselves well to being opened up via Surround Sound…
On disk are presented the best samples of multichannel music.
This disk also can be used for an estimation of quality of sounding and adjustment of multichannel sound equipment.
Whatever the style of the song, Joe Cocker delivers his adaptions with relentless spirit and professionalism. This brilliant collection of blues, ballads, and rock 'n roll explodes in 5.1 Digital Surround - transforming each unique presentation into a whole new music experience. Grammy Award winning artist Joe Cocker has been making hit records since the 1960's, and Night Calls is no exception. Cocker continues his tradition of doing powerful reditions of popular songs, but putting a little more soul & spirit in his versions. Clapton's "Can't Find My Way Home", Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me", and the Beatles' "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" all get the treatment. The stunning 5.1 mix creates more room for Cocker's heartfelt vocals. 5.1

At 77, Dave Brubeck continued to pour forth new music at a clip that was extraordinary even for him. Whether any of it will last or stand up to the famous Brubeck numbers of the past, though, is something to ponder when you sample this quartet session. An all-Brubeck program of never-recorded new pieces (although the piece entitled "Marian McPartland" beat the McPartland/Brubeck duo version by only a couple of months), So What's New finds Brubeck in a friskier mood than in his previous, somewhat autumnal Telarcs, even willing to take us back to the bombs-away block-chorded Brubeck of the '50s and '60s on "It's Deja-Vu All Over Again"…
The Woodstock Diaries is an enthralling ''fly on the wall'' documentary about the creation of Woodstock, and of the actual three day event itself. It contains drama, humour and even pathos, and recaptures those heady days of the hippie movement when young people really believed that they could change the world. And yet incredibly this historic event almost never happened. A series of near-catastrophes conspired to derail the Woodstock Festival and, but for the sheer perseverance and chutzpah of several key characters, the whole course of rock music could have been drastically different.
