This collection of contemporary Jewish music ranges from klezmer and traditional songs to a more adult contemporary pop sound, but the thread of soulful, passionate performances runs throughout. The hilarious "Chicken," courtesy of Kapelye, contrasts with Savina Yannatou's stark, almost classical take on "El Sueño de la Hija del Rey," but both burn with the fiery urgency that music from the Jewish culture seems to exude so naturally.
Assembled from various shows from various tours from around the world, 2016's Live: Greatest Hits from Around the World is billed as ZZ Top's first "full-length live album" – a matter of dispute considering how Eagle Rock released three CD/DVD/Blu-ray combo sets between 2008 and 2014. There is no visual component to Live: Greatest Hits from Around the World, which may be how it skates around the first live album distinction – if there's no video, this is a pure album – but the record mines a similar musical vein, collecting highlights from latter-day ZZ Top tours.

BAI BANG’s recipe for hits is based on the basics, short tracks, easy living melodies and lots of energies. The music shows passion and how veteran these guys really are.

Every follower of melodic Hard Rock and a fan of bands like L.A. GUNS, H.E.A.T., STEEL PANTHER and THE POODLES will be in cloud nine during while listening to this album.
Compiled from various appearances along the Grace World Tour in 1995, these poignant live tracks capture Jeff Buckley's raw passion, elegance and vocal prowess in its most organic form. Produced by the late singer's mother, standouts include the rarely performed beauty "What Will You Say" (the only song not off Grace), as well as an eerie rendition of "Dream Brother," which showcases a haunting mid-song high note, the powerful "Last Goodbye" and two very different performances of both "Grace" and "So Real."
Since he was the son of cult songwriter Tim Buckley, Jeff Buckley faced more expectations and pre-conceived notions than most singer/songwriters. Perhaps it wasn't surprising that Jeff Buckley's music was related to his father's by only the thinnest of margins. Buckley's voice was grand and sweeping, which fit with the mock-operatic grandeur of his Van Morrison-meets-Led Zeppelin music.
