There could be no better introduction to the sound of the Boston Symphony, in the repertoire in which it became most famous, than this French collection with Charles Munch. Sometimes wild and unpredictable in concert performances, Munch's conducting here is both visceral yet elegant, full of mystery when called for and unbridled in its passion at other times. 1962 Recordings.

Three Blind Mice Blu-spec CD reissue series. Limited paper sleeve edition. Blues For Tee is the second of the three albums that came out of the legendary Christmas sessions at the Misty, a Tokyo jazz club, which took place on December 1974. The Three Blind Mice producer Takeshi "Tee" Fujii wanted to record Yamamoto before he left for the U.S. to study at Berklee School of Music, and almost all of the performances were so good that he decided to release three LPs instead of one that was originally planned.

In some ways UK represented both the last hurrah of progressive music's golden age, and the standard by which all other supergroups that followed would be judged. The impeccable technical precision, complex yet modern arrangements, and dynamic live performances made them an overnight legend whose reputation has far outlasted their brief existence. No other supergroup, progressive or otherwise, has had such an immediate and lasting impact. Recorded live September 11, 1978 at Paradise Theatre in Boston, this recording is finally available after long been only found as a bootleg. Two tracks with the original UK line-up, rather than the more familiar 2nd (Danger Money and later) UK line-up.

Lighthouse put out three excellent albums on RCA between 1969 and 1970. They were in the same vein of B.S.&T., Chicago, Ides of March, Chase, and Tower of Power. What set them apart was that they even contained a mini string section within the band. There were eleven musicians that could jam, play awesome ballads, and jazz it up when needed. They perfected some excellent pop tunes that were very radio friendly but their peak moment was their American breakthrough hit, "One Fine Morning",(Billboard #24). It was quite progressive for the fall of 1971, but it climbed the charts in the U.S. and finally gave them due justice and their highest charting hit! (They were already pretty successful in their native Canada) Ironically the song was released on the Evolution label which was extremely small. This album reached #80 on Billboard's album charts and ended up being their most successful album.

The Allmusic review states "This is a tough, streetwise, commercial jazz album that has plenty to offer to anyone with an open mind. In the pocket, groove-soaked, and flawlessly executed".
