The Velvet Underground’s classic self-titled third album, released in March 1969, by MGM, was a departure from the band’s first two albums in more ways than one. Gone was co-founding member John Cale, and in his place was a 21-year-old with Long Island roots named Doug Yule, who stepped right in. The record was also a stylistic leap, as Lou Reed describes it in Rolling Stone editor David Fricke’s liner notes, “I thought we had to demonstrate the other side of us. Fricke calls it “a stunning turnaround… 10 tracks of mostly warm, explicit sympathy and optimism, expressed with melodic clarity, set in gleaming double-guitar jangle and near-whispered balladry. Or as the late rock critic Lester Bangs put it, “How do you define a group like this, who moved from ‘Heroin’ to ‘Jesus’ in two short years?”

Following on the 2015 release of Mozart's Requiem, Masaaki Suzuki and his Bach Collegium Japan has gone on to record the composers Mass in C minor, K427 the 'Great Mass'. As the nickname indicates it is a work of unusual proportions for a mass of the Classical period or would have been so, had Mozart completed it. It is not known for what occasion Mozart intended the work, but a letter to his father Leopold dated 4 January 1783 indicate that he may have committed himself to writing it in connection with his marriage to Constanze and a planned visit to Salzburg. A performance of parts of the Mass did take place in Salzburg in October 1783, with Constanze performing the prominent soprano part.

George Thoroughgood first released "Bad to the Bone" in 1982. The disc was his major label debut, but little had changed from his previous approach: the album was still full of the straight-ahead hard-hitting blues-based rock his following had come to expect. Not surprisingly, little about that approach has changed in the decades following, which is one of the reasons the 2007 reissue still sounds relevant. The sound of his band, the Destroyers, can still peel paint, and the covers of Albert King, Jimmy Reed, and John Lee Hooker are full of bar-band bravado. Naturally, the title track, which has grown into an FM radio classic over the years, still shines, as does Thoroughgood's stinging slide work.
