Gong are – and were – a completely indefinable and free-thinking outfit. They are still touring and touching minds, even after the death of founder Daevid Allen but this trilogy of albums was the best music that they ever produced…

Incantations is the fourth record album by Mike Oldfield, released in late 1978 on Virgin Records. After a two-year pause following Boxed, Mike Oldfield released a new epic project, this one spread over four vinyl sides and devoted to Native American themes rather than hewing once more toward the Celtic end of the spectrum. Included was Oldfield's musical adaptation of "The Song of Hiawatha," which had a nice sense of the dramatic when it came to dynamic range. After this, Oldfield would not return to album-length concepts for quite some time.

Barbra Streisand…And Other Musical Instruments (also called And Other Musical Instruments) is the fourteenth studio album by American singer Barbra Streisand. It was released on November 2, 1973 by Columbia Records. The album was made available following a 1973 live television special promoted to improve Streisand's image and sound. With world music as the primary genre, the album's instrumentation varies greatly; even items such as kitchen utensils were used to create melodies and beats. With a majority of the songs on the album being cover songs, Streisand also re-recorded various tracks that originated earlier in her career. Her manager, Martin Erlichman, was credited as the album's sole and executive producer.

As the title suggests, this is the definitive edition of Etta James' Tell Mama long-player. For this single-disc release the original album is augmented with five previously unissued tracks – documented during James' four Muscle Shoals sessions circa '67-'68. The question of why a rural Alabama town became a conduit for some of the most memorable and instantly identifiable grooves may still be up for debate. The evidence exists in droves and Tell Mama could certainly be considered exhibit A. These sessions feature the same impact that would redirect several first ladies of soul. Notable among them are Dusty Springfield's Dusty in Memphis, Aretha Franklin's I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You) and to somewhat lesser acclaim, Jackie DeShannon's Jackie. Tell Mama showcases some of the unique and admittedly darker qualities of what might best be described as R&B noir. "I'd Rather Go Blind," "Steal Away," "I'm Gonna Take What He's Got" all exemplify the essence of the blues – making the best of a bad situation.

With 1984's Discovery, Mike Oldfield seems to be back on track, utilizing the vocal power of Maggie Reilly and the drum playing of Simon Phillips to create some rather appealing selections. "The Lake" is a simply gorgeous instrumental inspired by Switzerland's Lake Geneva, the location in which the album was recorded, while "To France" is a powerful pop/rock tune based on the life of Mary, Queen of Scots. Both Reilly and Barry Palmer share the vocal duties throughout the tracks, signifying Oldfield's subtle emergence into a more pop-infused atmosphere. "Tricks of the Light" is a wonderful instrumental that relies on the keyboard to give it energy, while even so-so efforts like the title track and "Poison Arrows" come off as upbeat and inspired. Discovery peaked at number 15 in the U.K., and even though it didn't garner much attention elsewhere, it serves as one of Mike Oldfield's most entertaining releases from the decade.

Speed/Thrash/Power/Heavy Metal/Punk

Remastered re-release of the seventh full-length album by the legendary German Thrash/Punk Metal band. "The Tankard" was not too well received at the time of its release to say the least. Although Tankard have always combined many different styles in their sound, this album must have been a real shock to many Tankard fans, as it is only remotely a Thrash album and by far the happiest Tankard record. It’s hard to classify this one, it’s can describe as a mixture of Speed/Thrash/Power/Heavy Metal and Punk.

Thrash Metal

Remastered re-release of the sixth full-length album by the legendary German Thrash Metal band. Tankard created a record that was really "Two-Faced". After "Stone Cold Sober" Tankard concentrated on their strengths. That meant that they had to move away a bit from the Thrash formula and focus on the other styles, which had always been a part of their sound anyway, or to put it simply. This band had to find the right balance again, and they finally did. This album includes a few of the best songs that Tankard has recorded in years! While "Two-Faced" initially seems to possess many of Tankard's trademark characteristics, it also differs from the previous releases to a small degree. Some deviation from traditions put aside, “Two-Faced" is a fair pick for anyone who enjoys Tankard's style! Re-edition contains five live bonus tracks taken from the "Open All Night" VHS recording! Recorded live at the Thrashing-East-Festival, Werner-Seelenbinder-Halle, East Berlin, March 4th, 1990.

Thrash Metal

Remastered re-release of the fifth full-length album by the legendary German Thrash/Speed Metal band. Pure Gritty Violent German Thrash! Recorded at a time when Thrash was beginning to disappear, the release of "Stone Cold Sober" offered the genre something to look forward to. Filled with fast deafening riffs and the classic Thrash Metal vocals, Tankard does so well, it's an improvement from "Zombie Attack" and "Chemical Invasion", not too discredit these two great albums. The controversial fifth release from Germany’s hardest drinkers in Tankard, “Stone Cold Sober,” is perhaps the bands’ most overall Thrash-intensive effort and really shows the band has plenty to offer when they put the drinks down and really get down to business! Re-edition contains three live bonus tracks taken from the "Open All Night" VHS recording! Recorded live at the Thrashing-East-Festival, Werner-Seelenbinder-Halle, East Berlin, March 4th, 1990.

Thrash Metal

Remastered re-release of the fourth full-length album by the legendary German Thrash Metal band. "The Meaning of Life" is stylistically not a large departure from the last album, but here you can really notice they started experimenting with their songwriting, especially as in trying to make the riffs more complex, the songs longer and more mid-paced moments (slightly) than on the previous releases. Re-edition contains five live bonus tracks taken from the "Open All Night" VHS recording! Recorded live at the Thrashing-East-Festival, Werner-Seelenbinder-Halle, East Berlin, March 4th, 1990.
