Concerto Teatro Uomo is a live album by Italian Jazz fusion band Area released in 1996 and recorded in in Milan, while the band was supporting their fifth album Maledetti (Maudits). The album was criticized for its sound quality (it was not professionally recorded, unlike their 1975 live album Are(A)zione) and for some packaging errors, but was also praised for its musical content (including extended improvisations) and for Demetrio Stratos' useful information about the tracks during banter between songs. This album was repackaged with another posthumous live album Parigi-Lisbona in the boxset Live Concerts Box.
Autumn 2016 marks for the fortieth anniversary of the British musical revolution that was Punk Rock, fanfared by the release of ‘Anarchy In The UK’ by the Sex Pistols and ‘New Rose’ by The Damned. Marking this monumental birthday, ACTION TIME VISION is the first-ever box set to document the independent punk scene, which was born with Punk and thrived outside of the major label framework.
The Isley Brothers came with love, funk and the too seldom mentioned socially consicous songs; this album is titled after one of those social gems.

Preceded by a mellow intro in which Ronald Isley's earnest plea rings with urgency, the timeless lyric and festive rhythm make "Harvest for the World" a welcomed anthem for all the people of the world. It cracked the Billboard R&B top ten at number nine.
Socrates - initially known by the more unwieldy moniker Socrates Drank the Conium - were one of the best-known Greek rock bands of the early to mid-‘70s, and one of the few to earn a reputation in the rest of the world. On their first three albums they pursued a tough but technically proficient brand of post-psychedelic hard rock that occasionally revealed a touch of prog influence, but on their 1976 release, Phos, the band underwent a major stylistic shift, and embraced those prog leanings with open arms. The main facilitator for this change was famed keyboardist Vangelis, whose prog ensemble Aphrodite's Child preceded Socrates as Greece's rock ambassadors to the wider world. Vangelis came on board as producer and keyboardist for Phos…
