If The Times They Are a-Changin' isn't a marked step from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, even if it is his first collection of all originals, it's nevertheless a fine collection all the same. It isn't as rich as Freewheelin', and Dylan has tempered his sense of humor considerably, choosing to concentrate on social protests in the style of "Blowin' in the Wind."…
Chuck Schuldiner gets even darker and bleaker on Leprosy, the follow-up to Death's long-awaited 1987 debut, Scream Bloody Gore.

Reissue with latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. With the cheers and huzzahs from their 1976 one-off reunion still resounding, the reconstituted Miles Davis Quintet minus Miles went on the road in 1977, spreading their 1965-vintage gospel according to the Prince of Darkness to audiences in Berkeley and San Diego, CA. In doing so, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams, plus interloper Freddie Hubbard seem to pick up where they left off, with a repertoire mostly new to the five collectively and developed from there.
Here's a gem fellows Wes Montgomery collectors. In the spring of 1964 Wes, at the highest peak of his successful career recorded this splendid session with the great Billy Taylor trio (Billy taylor piano, Ben Tucker double bass, Grady Tate drums) and Joe Williams on vocals (tunes 9-16). It is a wonderful studio date! The first eight tunes are instrumentals, with Wes in the leader's chair. The other tunes are sunged by Joe Williams and it's a delight for real. Don't think to buy this one only for the first eight tunes, Joe Williams sings in an extraordinary way here (Wes comps in those tunes very lightly adding some notes but never coming in the way of the piano which is the main background instrument).
