Japanese original greatest hits album from Electric Light Orchestra combines the following two albums already released: "All Over The World - The Very Best Of Electric Light Orchestra" (2005) and "Ticket To The Moon - The Very Best Of Electric Light Orchestra Volume 2" (2007). Features Blu-spec CD2 format and contains 40 tracks total on two discs.
These chamber works bring Sony's adventurous, timely Ligeti series to a natural pinnacle. Long the challenger of stylistic stasis and customary demonstrations of excellence, Ligeti has outdone himself here (as he did with the fantastic Mechanical Music release). The Trio for Violin, Horn, and Piano (1982) challenges its players to stay in step with each other even while expanding virtuosity to the breaking point. Marie-Luise Neunecker plays such full horn parts that they roll flow over the tonal bounds, as does Saschko Gawriloff's violin and Pierre-Laurent Aimard's piano… –Andrew Bartlett..
Definitive hits collection on 2 CDs plus an additional 3rd disc of b-sides and rarities, all in a 20-page casebound book package. Includes the brand new single "Shame", co-written with Gary Barlow. With a staggering 57 million album sales and 11 million singles sold, Robbie Williams has been breaking records over the course of his whole career. 7 No 1 UK albums meant he is easily the biggest selling solo artist in UK history, a fact reinforced by his 2010 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution To Music. In fact, with a tally of 16, he has won more Brits than any other artist since the awards began, including "Angels" being voted the best single of the last 25 years. A plethora of other record-breaking awards include a Guinness World Record for fastest ever ticket sales, coupled with the honor of playing the largest open-air concert in UK history, at Knebworth in 2003 have meant that his status as a live performer has equalled his massive achievements as a recording artist.
Reconnected Live is a live album by UK synthpop duo Yazoo. It was released by Mute Records on 27 September 2010 in the UK and the following day in the United States.
Twenty-five years after Yazoo split, members Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet reunited for short tour of Europe and North America during 2008. The 'Reconnected Tour' marked the first time that the duo had performed any songs from their second album You and Me Both live, and it was their first full tour of North America. In an interview with Side-Line magazine, Clarke announced that the live CD would be released. Tracks on Reconnected Live were recorded from various dates during the tour. The album's liner notes do not specify from which shows the recordings were taken.
Either the finest record or the most overblown album in Yes' output. When it was released, critics called it one of the worst examples of progressive rock's overindulgent nature. Jon Anderson's fascination with Eastern religions never manifested itself more clearly or broadly, but one needn't understand any of that to appreciate the many sublimely beautiful moments on this album, some of the most gorgeous passages ever recorded by the band. ~ Bruce Eder
