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.

One of the most persistent questions that musicians ask themselves while practicing a piece is the inevitable query of how the composer himself might have performed his music. There are many written reports on how the old masters such as Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven may have played or improvised; and there are lines of teacher/pupil relationships which can trace their lineage back to the pianistic greats such as Liszt, but still we have to imagine the sound since we cannot actually hear it.

Jazz-Pop, Easy Listening | Country: Germany

Berthold Heinrich Kämpfert, (16 October 1923 – 21 June 1980), better known as Bert Kaempfert, was a German orchestra leader, music producer, and songwriter. He made easy listening and jazz-oriented records and wrote the music for a number of well-known songs, including "Strangers in the Night" and "Moon Over Naples". Kaempfert was born in Hamburg, Germany, where he received his lifelong nickname, Fips, and studied at the local school of music. A multi-instrumentalist, he was hired by Hans Busch to play with his orchestra before serving as a bandsman in the German Navy during World War II. He later formed his own big band, toured with them, then worked as an arranger and producer, making hit records with Freddy Quinn and Ivo Robić. In 1961, he hired The Beatles to back Tony Sheridan for an album called My Bonnie. The album and its singles, released by Polydor Records, were the Beatles' first commercially released 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.
