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.

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.

L'agente speciale Pendergast è a pezzi: Constance, il suo braccio destro, è partita per l'India, e come se non bastasse è finito sulla lista nera del vicedirettore Longstreet. È infatti per una punizione interna che viene assegnato a un caso in apparenza banale, già seguito dalla Squadra Omicidi di New York del tenente Vincent D'Agosta. Il corpo di una giovane è stato ritrovato senza vita in un garage nel Queens. Forse, però, quell'omicidio nasconde più di un mistero; forse quel caso non è poi così secondario. La ragazza infatti è figlia di un facoltoso imprenditore. E il cadavere è stato ritrovato orrendamente decapitato. L'indagine si allarga e si complica quando l'assassino colpisce di nuovo, e poi ancora: un avvocato della mafia che vive in una casa-fortezza, un magnate russo circondato da un imponente servizio d'ordine… Possibile che un serial killer abbia deciso di punire i personaggi più ricchi, corrotti e protetti di New York, quasi a voler dimostrare che nessuno è davvero al sicuro? Su questa pista si muove anche Bryce Harriman, giornalista del Post, che alimenta l'onda dell'indignazione popolare e porta la città sull'orlo dell'isteria collettiva. In una New York spettrale e inospitale, Pendergast è costretto a giocare una partita genialmente pericolosa contro un avversario rabbioso e senza pietà. Finché l'alba non arrivi.

A search for the truth is about to begin… When the body of a foreman turns up on a building site, the insurers call in solicitor Alistair Duncan to investigate and protect their interests. The official line is he was accidentally electrocuted – so why do Duncan’s investigations suggest otherwise? And why had witnesses lied at the inquest? What was the guilty secret of the beautiful and seductive young widow, June Hillyer, a girl with tastes beyond her means? Why, too, was Dwight Riley the victim of brutal intimidation? As the sinister nature of the investigations unfold, the story rushes to a menacing climax when some unexpected answers are revealed…
