More than anything else, Lena Horne was a nightclub entertainer, and having completed her film commitments to MGM in 1956, she was free to turn her attention to performing full-time. Starting on New Year's Eve, she spent eight weeks at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, and at the end of the run RCA Victor Records brought in recording equipment. The result is an excellent representation of Horne in her natural environment. Backed by Nat Brandwynne's Orchestra as conducted by her husband, Lennie Hayton, Horne essays a series of vintage standards that go back to 1929's "Honeysuckle Rose," which she sang in the 1943 film Thousands Cheer.

The plot concerns the feisty eponymous heroine Isabella. She has been sailing in the Mediterranean, accompanied by an elderly admirer Taddeo, in search of her lover Lindoro. After her ship is wrecked Mustafa, the Bey of Algiers, believes her the ideal replacement for his neglected wife who he intends to marry off to a captured slave, who happens to be Lindoro. Complicated situations ensue involving Taddeo being awarded the honour of Kaimakan and Mustafa in turn becoming a Pappataci, a spoof award invented by Isabella to keep him obeying her strict instructions. All ends well in a rousing finale with the Italians escaping from the clutches of the Bey.

Fuel to the fire – that’s what relentlessly hot and timeless hard rock outfit Audrey Horne provide. What started back in 2002 soon took the Norwegians and their riff-soaked fury all the way to the top, albeit accidentally. Three years after the much-praised Pure Heavy album, Blackout arrives with the force of a massive rock`n`roll party! Lend your ear to the thundering Iron Maiden leads that ‘This Is War‘ has to offer or to the serious amount of cowbell and twin guitar harmonies that infuse tracks like ‘Blackout.’ Wine, women, and lone wolves are the stuff Audrey Horne anthems made of. It’s 10 ultra-catchy, fist-pumping songs that have will reduce venues in Europe to piles of dust.

This 19 track collection brings together Horne's best tracks, displaying his rhythmic singing. Artists signed to the TK labels would often work on one another's album. For Jimmy 'Bo' Horne, this meant the backing on many of his songs was performed by Harry Casey and Rick Finch, better known as KC & The Sunshine Band. On this Greatest Hits collection 13 of the songs are backed by KC & The Sunshine Band, with the delightful opener 'Spank' being typical of the Sunshine band disco sound. 'Dance Across The Floor' was Horne's second single and biggest hit, encouraging all party-goers to shake their booty and solidifying his reputation as a disco king. Horne's first 12 inch single was 'Get Happy' with 'Gimme Some' on the b-side, both of which have been included here. Horne also recorded his own ballad version of '(They Long To Be ) Close To You', putting his own disco soul stamp on the classic Carpenters song - it is included here amongst the disco gems.

..Of great voices the present recording can offer at least one. Marilyn Horne, even at this date (1976), was no longer singing with the firmness of earlier years, as is clear if this performance of "Ah, mon fils" and the Prison scene is compared with that included in her magnificent first LP recitals. Even so, much of the richness remains and the majestic virtuosity is unimpaired… The Royal Philharmonic under Henry Lewis play well, colourful orchestration being among the score's most attractive features… –Gramophone

Antonio Vivaldi wrote hundreds of largely famous instrumental works, and his glorious church music is well known; but it wasn’t until recent decades that his operas – of which he is said to have created more than fifty – were resurrected. Orlando furioso occupies a central and very significant place among Vivaldi’s works. Not only does the whole score of this opera demonstrate its composer’s full, creative maturity, but its outstanding features are also an extraordinary musical beauty, an attractive recitative line and a balance thus created between the various parts of the dramatic and musical whole. This exceptional musical achievement was no doubt partly due to the famous theme of the original story, as well as the literary and dramatic qualities of a fi rst-rate libretto. Pier Luigi Pizzi’s 1979 production of Orlando furioso in Verona marked the beginning of contemporary international interest in Antonio Vivaldi’s operas. Ten years later the same director once more produced this work at the San Francisco Opera, where it was a great success.

This 1966 recording, billed as the first complete Semiramide on disc, with Joan Sutherland singing Semiramide and Marilyn Horne singing the trouser role Arsace, has long been considered the standard by which all other Semiramide's are measured. Although subsequently there have been more complete recordings, this remains among the best recorded performance and is a recommendation for every opera collection.
