DVD9 x 3 | English | Sub: ENG | 5h 03min (8 Episodes + 1 Extra) | 720 x 576 (PAL) | AC3 | 21.7 GB
Genre: Documentary, Adventure Travel

Michael Palin undertakes a journey by the most direct route possible (30 degrees longitude) with the most land to cross from the North Pole to the South Pole.

This is fabulous entertaining and educational stuff. He never ceases in being slightly British in appreciation and humour, without the stuffiness and the arrogance he sometimes encounters in other ex-British patriotes located in the countries he sometimes visits. He is always quirky and easily adaptable to the circumstances and adversities he encounters. He is always respectful of other human beings he encounters even in dire and sometimes miserable places. A remarkably truthful and funny human being we should all be proud of in sharing his travels and observations with us. He travels to places and shows really pleasure in sharing with us our world, even if only flirtingly, places we can only dream of perhaps, one day of also being able to visit.

Bach: Complete Keyboard Works - Ivo Janssen (2011)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 20 CDs | Full Scans | 4.8 GB
Genre: Classical | Label: VOID | Catalog Number: 0098

This 20-disc box set has been entertaining me for several months. Dutch pianist Ivo Janssen set up his own record label to distribute his 1997 Goldberg Variations, recorded on the hoof over two days in Haarlem. Its success prompted him to tackle Bach’s complete keyboard output. And there’s a sense of fly-by-night impetuosity about some of these performances, all taped in the same venue with the same producer, the cycle finally finished in 2009.

Haydn - The Complete Symphonies (Dorati) (2009)
Classical | Eac. Flac, Tracks+Cue, Log | Scans | 10.13 GB
Label: Decca | TT: 36:31

A limited-edition super-budget set. 2009 is 200th anniversary of Haydn’s death. Decca’s pioneering complete cycle of Haydn symphonies on modern instruments. Recorded between 1969 and 1972, this was the first complete cycle of Haydn’s symphonies. Hungarian-born Antal Dorati was a Haydn pioneer and specialist who also recorded Haydn operas for Philips during the same period. Decca catalogue of Haydn is without parallel and contains complete cycles of the Piano Sonatas and String Quartets (as well as Piano Trios on Philips). Many of these are award-winning recordings.

Each box contains 25 slipcase CDs, a booklet (up to 186 pages) and an index. The booklets contain extensive notes (Eng/Fr) with recording dates and line-ups. 31 hours of music in each box, totalling 1677 tracks Each track has been restored and mastered from original sources. The only reason I can think of for there not yet being a review of these four boxed sets, is that those who own them are just too busy having one hell of a blast listening to them. Some people moan about the 50 year copyright law for audio recordings in Europe, but without it this highly entertaining, eye-opening and educational undertaking could never have taken place. These 100 discs (spread over four boxed sets of 25 discs) tell the story of jazz from 1898 to 1959.

Karajan - Symphony Edition (Boxset) (2008)  Music

Admirers of Karajan will probably own most or all of these symphony cycles from what was probably the pinnacle of the conductor's prolific career. However, if you are unfamiliar with Karajan's work, or well enough acquainted with it to desire further exploration, then this amazingly inexpensive anthology can be enthusiastically recommended. I purchased all of these sets when they came out in DG's previous mid-priced "Karajan Symphony Edition," and I can testify to their consistently oustanding quality, both as performances and as interpretations. As recordings, however, it must be admitted that the sound is of variable quality; sometimes admirably vivid and well balanced, but frequently tending toward harshness, even garishness–particularly in those which come from the early digital era (cf. Bruckner's symphonies 1-3). Too bad Universal didn't see fit to give this magnificent legacy a sonic facelift. Still, the performances are sufficiently worthy of your attention to warrant purchase regardless of these sonic limitations.

This set proves two things about Charlie Parker. One, every note he ever played is worth hearing. Yes, the sound is awful and only Bird's solos are recorded, but after nearly 15 years, this set remains one of my favorites. Two, Bird never played the same note twice. There is a series of solos from In the Mood for Love and every one is completely different. This set is highly recommended for all who ever enjoyed hearing Bird play.
