In 1967, Chicago musicians Walter Parazaider, Terry Kath, Danny Seraphine, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Robert Lamm, and Peter Cetera formed a group with one dream, to integrate all the musical diversity from their beloved city and weave a new sound, a rock 'n' roll band with horns. Their dream turned into record sales topping the 100,000,000 mark, including 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 32 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
One thing is quite certain: ou can love this album to death or loathe it with every fiber of your being, but you can’t really ignore it. From the gorgeusly disturbing gatefold sleeve, displaying a masterpiece of Gothic artwork by Swiss cult artist R.H. Giger (of “Alien” fame), down to the unabashed self-indulgence of its musical content, “Brain Salad Surgery” is a compendium of everything progressive rock is all about, the good, the bad and the ugly. It is loud, metallic, and harsh, undeniably bombastic, though it can also be melodic and soothing – a true rollercoaster ride of an album, swinging from the beautiful, English choirboy vocals of “Jerusalem” (with wonderful lyrics courtesy of one Mr William Blake) to the all-out progressive orgy that is “Karn Evil 9”.

RCA Living Stereo Series from Analogue Productions. Another of the rare performances of violinist Jascha Heifetz and conductor Fritz Reiner together with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. This stunning recording of Brahms' Violin Concerto is nothing short of breathtaking. The original 30 ips 2-track analog tape was used to master these LP and SACD reissues. Remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, these new versions are clearer than the originals and warmer and richer than past reissues.
John Mayall With Eric Clapton – Blues Breakers (1966) London Records/LC 50009 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

John Mayall With Eric Clapton – Blues Breakers
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: London Records/LC 50009 | Released: 1966 | This Issue: 197? | Genre: Blues-Rock

Tired of a creeping tendency towards pop territory that was happening in his old band, the Yardbirds, Eric Clapton was after one thing alone: the blues. With John Mayall and his pool of fledgling giants he got it in spades.
Zubin Mehta & New York Philharmonic – Pictures At An Exhibition (1980) M 35165 - 1st US Pressing LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Label: CBS Masterworks/M 35165 | Release: 1980 | Genre: Classical

Here are sets of Pictures to suit almost every personal art gallery. The newest issue (though not the most recently recorded—it has a 1979 analogue source) is the least memorable. The orchestral playing is excellent and certain portrayals are striking, the ”Ballet of Unhatched Chicks”, for instance and ”Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle”, while the closing sequence is strongly projected.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. This is the music that will be playing when you die and go to heaven. Excellent original style Dixieland, George's clarinet is heaven! I don't know if any record can do justice to the live experience of the original giants of jazz creating this stuff. But the George Lewis tracks on this record come pretty close! For this alone this CD is well worth buying.

Studio Master, Official Digital Download, Avie Records

'Testament' is Rachel Barton Pine's very personal homage to the music of J. S. Bach, on which she performs the composer's complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin in the acoustic of her hometown St. Pauls Church in Chicago, where she first heard and fell in love with Bach's music.
Christy Moore - Christy Moore (1988)  Atlantic/7 81835-1 - 1st US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Christy Moore - Christy Moore
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz / 900mb
Label: Atlantic/7 81835-1 | Release: 1988 | Genre: Folk-Rock

Appearing "Sweet Music Roll On"
This self-titled album, Christy Moore's first on Atlantic Records, seemed intended to introduce him to a wider audience, possibly including American listeners. The album cover includes quotes from Irish music celebrities like Elvis Costello, Shane McGowan and Bono, describing Moore as the "greatest living Irishman" and the Irish equivalent to Woody Guthrie. These endorsements are true enough, but the album they promote proceeds to water down Moore's greatness almost beyond recognition.

Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz | 900mb

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive-rock music.
As Nice As Mother Makes It
After two very robust but patchy albums the Nice adopted a slightly different approach to their third by exploiting a half live/half studio hybrid. They felt that this (on the advice of their new manager Tony Stratton-Smith) would showcase the 'best of both worlds' as the studio precedents were not felt to do justice to their live performances.

Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz / 900mb
Label: Philips/6303 011 | Release: 1971 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Although admittedly a posthumous release, I was very surprised at the rather dismissive tenor of many of the reviews of this album to date. Hopefully this record will be reappraised soon as being a release worthy of anyone's consideration as I feel it does enhance an already rich legacy left behind by this very fine and innovative band. (So what if Charisma wanted to ride the slipstream of the lucrative ELP juggernaut?)
