Is there anybody who remembers Snake Charmers debut album "Smoke And Mirrors" that was released 1993 with former Alien singer Pete Sandberg? That was a good typical Scandi AOR in the veins of Alien. Then they released "Backyard Boogaloo" in Japan a few of years ago but it vanished almost right away after it was released. Now the new MTM sidelabel called Classix has picked it up and releases it with bonus tracks. This album has a better sound and variation than the debut and the songs reaches from Mark Free to Ignition and Goran sings with class.
Handel's solo sonatas exist in versions for various wind instruments as well as for violin, in some cases differing in their respective keys and number of movements. Many were reworked in later printed editions so that they would be playable on the transverse flute, an instrument that was becoming ever more popular in England at that time. This release of the complete wind sonatas takes into account the different versions of the pieces. The soloists are proven experts in their field: flutist Barthold Kuijken, recorder player Peter Van Heyghen and oboist Marcel Ponseele.
