David James Poissant - Il paradiso degli animali
Italian | 2015 | 546 pages | ISBN 8899253234 | EPUB | 3,2 MB

I racconti di David Jams Poissant parlano di relazioni. Genitori e figli, mariti e mogli, amanti o amici, i protagonisti di queste storie sono ritratti in un momento decisivo della loro vita quando, per la forza brutale dell'amore, si trovano sulla soglia di un precipizio, spinti da decisioni che loro stessi hanno preso. E sull'orlo del burrone, a ciascuno viene chiesto di fare una scelta: saltare o tornare indietro. Gli animali servono da catalizzatori, scatenano reazioni paradossali, spesso grottesche. E sono anche metafore di un territorio sospeso tra realismo e allegoria. I paesaggi sono quelli dell'America del sud, Atlanta, Florida, Tucson, ma anche Midwest e California. Non è il sogno americano ma un luogo più selvaggio e ai margini, dove fallimento e successo sono molto più vicini di quanto ci si aspetti, e il finale, lieto o triste che sia, libera sempre nuove speranze di riscatto e una profonda compassione.

EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 212 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 162 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Chicago Blues, Slide Guitar Blues | Label: Rhino | # R2 71190 | Time: 01:01:15

With the confusing plethora of Elmore James discs out on the market, this is truly the place to start, featuring the best of his work culled from several labels. Highlights include James' original recording of "Dust My Broom," "It Hurts Me Too," "T.V. Mama" (with Elmore backing Big Joe Turner), and the title track, one of the best slow blues ever created. Slide guitar doesn't get much better than this, making this particular compilation not only a perfect introduction to Elmore's music, but an essential piece for any blues collection.

Genre: Early R&B, Blues | Label: Virgin | # 5099909851924 | Time: 00:38:40

This 15-track compilation focuses on the earliest sessions recorded by Etta James for Modern Records between 1955 and 1957. James was only a teenager when she first recorded for the L.A.-based label. Her youthful exuberance and powerhouse delivery still generate that initial excitement captured on these remastered versions of "The Wallflower (Roll with Me Henry)," "The Pick-Up," "W-O-M-A-N," and "Good Rockin' Daddy." This set is a great introduction to James' early raw recordings; however, it excludes a few tracks from the superior The Best of the Modern Years on Metro Blue.

A trio of English composers perhaps better known for their creative output in other fields, yet who played a crucial role in the development of the Anglican choral tradition in the twentieth century. James O’Donnell and Westminster Abbey Choir present a programme centred on Finzi’s Lo, the full, final sacrifice: the other works may be less familiar but are no less moving.

La memoria del killer - James Patterson

Alex Cross ha affrontato serial killer, psicopatici, criminali di altissimo livello. Eppure c'è una sfida che ancora rimane in sospeso, da anni: l'omicidio di sua moglie Maria, la madre di due dei suoi tre figli. Maria gli era morta tra le braccia, in seguito a un colpo di pistola, forse diretto a lui, o forse no… Ma quando il detective John Sampson, suo amico da una vita, chiede il suo aiuto per un caso di uno stupratore seriale, le cose si complicano…

EAC Rip | FLAC, TRACKS+CUE, LOG | Covers | 1cd, 176 MB
Classical | Label: Deutsche Grammophon | Catalog Number: D 103920 | TT: 52’15

Kathleen Battle In Concert has been a part of my classical listening experience for many, many years, and many, many repeated playings. Every time I play it, I feel real joy at hearing Kathleen Battle in the opening bars of Purcell's "Come All Ye Songsters."
Miss Battle brings a high level of musicality, an impeccable use of phrasing and some truly beatiful high notes to a wonderful mix of lighter art/love songs, and more serious, but very joyous gospel classics, as in her rendition of "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands."
It's been too many years since Kathleen Battle has recorded such a delightful recital album. If you're reading this Miss Battle, please please record another! We miss your voice greatly!!!

In 1966 two R & B bands local to Oldham (UK) merged to form a blues outfit The Blues Keepers. With sponsorship from a local businessman (also their manager) they rented an 18th century farmhouse where they practised extensively, gradually moving towards a progressive rock style then beginning to emerge. On turning professional the name Barclay James Harvest was adopted, and the line-up stabilised as John Lees (guitars, vocals), Les Holroyd (bass, rhythm guitar, vocals), Stuart "Wooly" Wolstenholme (keyboards, vocals) and Mel Pritchard (drums). After releasing their first single in April 1968, the band joined the legendary progressive Harvest label, quickly expanding their musical horizons, chiefly by experimenting with longer evolving song structures and orchestrations…

When Belgian-Portuguese duo Jess & James (Tony Lam and Wando Lam) released their third LP in 1969, they already had an impressive body of work under their belt. Playing a highly energized blend of pop and soul, they achieved great success in Europe with singles like "Move" and "Something for nothing"…
