One of the classic groups of the late 1940's/early 1950's, the Dominoes were led by Juillard-trained vocal coach Billy Ward, and are the bridge between the earlier Gospel and Ink Spots type of group and the coming world of Doo-Wop, R&B, and Rock'n'Roll. Their original lead singer Clyde McPhatter was coached by Ward to let his Gospel experience explode in a pop context, producing a fresh and startling sound which not only topped the R&B charts, but made them among the first black groups to gain a substantial following among young white kids, laying the ground for Alan Freed's promotion of black music as Rock'n'Roll Financial disagreements broke up the original group at the beginning of 1953…
Meeting with the G-Man+ is the RCA CD reissue of a live 1993 date in which the late Irish blues-rocker Rory Gallagher, late in his life, tore down the house in front of a large, completely unhinged, and adoring crowd. The beauty of this date is simply that Gallagher was still writing and recording new material and showcasing it on tour; he refused to be complacent and go the route of many of the guitar heroes of his generation by simply doing live shows comprised of hits. Therefore, much of the material here was new at the time, though a few classics are tossed in as well: killer versions of "Messin' with the Kid," "Ghost Blues," and "Mean Disposition." The 2003 CD reissue includes a complete remastering job, and includes no less than six previously unreleased acoustic performances placed in the center of the album – the order they took in the set list – almost doubling its length. While the recording itself is raw and immediate, it is never less than full-on in spectrum, making for an unusually high-quality, raucous gig that captured the guitarist at full power. Highly recommended.
Film music had pending an update of the soundtrack of the film ' The Third Man', directed in 1949 by British director Carol Reed and certainly the most important in the history of British cinema. It is known that the creator and performer of the music of this film was the musician and sitar player Anton Karas (Vienna, 1906-85). The interpretation of this recording , disappeared Karas, has been left to the Bavarian instrumentalist Gertrud Huber (Altoetting, 1963), not only a classically trained musician, but nice player of zither and harp of concert. This work is an opportunity to renew with the current sound quality great soundtrack of this historical film.
