British Blues pioneer Long John Baldry (1941 - 2005) recorded for Stony Plain from 1991 up until his death. He had started performing acoustic blues in London in the late 50s and worked with fellow blues pioneers Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies in the early 60s. Baldry was an inspiration to The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton, and mentored Rod Stewart and Elton John. It was an honor to release his new albums, reissues and to work with him on many additional projects and tours. Includes rare and previously unreleased material.

Jimmy Bo Horne's music is simply too good to be forgotten. This CD is essentially a KC and the Sunshine Band collection with a different vocalist. Harry Wayne Casey and his cohorts wrote, played on, and produced almost everything here, so if you like excellent '70s dance music you will enjoy this. "Dance Across the Floor" is one of the best songs I have ever heard; I can't understand why it wasn't a huge hit back in the day (and who's that familiar voice singing backup? I won't say his name, but his initials are…!) Other fun songs here are "Ask the Birds and the Bees", "Let Me Be Your Lover" (sampled by Stereo MC's for "Connected") and "I Wanna Go Home With You" and "Spank". Horne even manages to coax a listenable performance out of "Close To You". Enjoy!

The most successful Hungarian rock band in history, Omega is one of the rare bands to have been known outside in his country. The legend has it that as albums were released in other countries it became necessary to brake the language barrier. Their music is a combination of Eastern European prog with a bit of symphonic and a bit of psyche prog. The result is a dark orchestrated sound combined with extended improvisation.

Millennium: A History of the Last Thousand Years
Publisher: Scribner | ISBN: 0684803615 | edition 1995 | PDF | 820 pages | 28,1 mb

In this freewheeling, selective, iconoclastic history of the world from the 10th century to the present, Fernandez-Armesto concludes that the West's domination of global affairs was far from inevitable and is likely to abate as economic power and initiatives in technology and ideas shift decisively to Pacific rim nations. Editor of The Times Guide to the Peoples of Europe, the author first chronicles the slow, fitful consolidation of Islamic civilization, imperial China, medieval Europe and the Byzantine empire. The great age of European expansion unfolds here in a world full of aggressive competitors.

Early Byrd: The Best of the Jazz Soul Years contains a selection of nine tracks from Donald Byrd's mid-'60s recordings, bypassing his funkier fusions of the late '60s and early '70s. These songs – including such numbers as "Slow Drag," "Jellyroll," "Mustang," "Blackjack" and "The Dude" – feature the trumpeter at his grittiest and funkiest. Fans of his early hard bop years will still find enough improvisation here to make it interesting, while latter-day fans will find enough grooves. It's a solid introduction to one of Byrd's most prolific periods.

Blue Note's handy roundup series moves on to chronicle the '60s label stint of a bebop veteran. Returning to the States from Europe to cut several dates, Dexter Gordon managed to produce some of his best stuff for Alfred Lion's venerable jazz company. This fine disc features many of the highlights, including both breezy swingers and dusky ballads. Ranging from an incredible bop long-player with trumpeter Donald Byrd ("Tanya") to one of his patented after-hours smoothies ("Don't Explain"), Gordon reveals his large store of talent with solos that are both intricate and beguiling, and that's his mode for a set that also takes in bossa nova ("Soy Califa") and some fetching originals ("Cheese Cake"). Gordon novices should start here.
