Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music (for all Mellotron lovers, included me).
A high source of inspiration to many.
When it comes to name the main influences for today's prog we name the usual suspects: Yes, King Crimson, ELP yadiyadiyada…But who will name SFF? Me neither! Never! But what a pleasant surprise it's been to get my hands on this record. Finally, I get to know more SFF and on top, I removed the lid on many artists I though were original! Okay Anglagard and Carptree (the epic song is right Carptree's alley), you're busted! You were not the first to create the famous darkish atmosphere; SFF did it, but did not abuse it.
Luther Allison seemed to be on a roll when he died in 1998. He was back home after many years in Europe, and was winning awards and making a good living. This, his debut album, was cut in 1969 when he was 30 years old. He sang as if barely able to keep a lid on his emotion, and the elegance and precision of his guitar playing belied the fact that he had only been playing the instrument for a few years. If this debut can be faulted it's only in that it relies too heavily on overfamiliar standards like "Little Red Rooster," "Five Long Years," "Dust My Broom," "Sky Is Crying," and "Every Night About This Time." The CD reissue has been expanded with alternate takes and bonus cuts.
The bestselling adult novel of all time has introduced bondage into the bedroom with sales surpassing both The Da Vinci Code and the entire Harry Potter series. The novels are classified as erotic fiction, but author E.L. James calls it adult romance and its inspiration was to be erotic fan fiction for the Twilight saga. Fifty Shades Uncovered is a brand new feature documentary filmed in London and New York which explores the twilight zone of submissive romance and the power of the Fifty Shades of Grey film and books. Featuring the latest interviews from authors, stars and fans, Fifty Shades Uncovered lifts the lid on a cultural and sexual phenomenon that just won't be restrained anymore!
