Appaloosa – Appaloosa (1969) Columbia/CS 9819 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - NEW 2017 RIP!

Appaloosa ‎- Appaloosa
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Columbia/CS 9819 | Released: 1969 | Genre: Psychedelic-Folk

Appaloosa’s sole album is a textbook case of baroque folk, which was a term “en vogue” in the late 60’s, and described a folk rock laced with symphonic classical music; and with Al Kooper’s connection (both musical and production-wise) it became one of those influential albums, even if it only stayed four weeks in the US billboard, peaking at 128. Named after the horses and graced with a sober group picture for artwork, the album epitomizes a bit the Boston folk-rock scene, which saw Earth Opera (and its continuation Sea Train) and James Taylor emerge from also. The baroque folk genre can be applied to the Beatles’ Eleanor Rogby as well as the Rolling Stone’s Ruby Tuesday as well to artistes like Nick Drake, Donova, Tim Buckley and John Martyn. All of the 11 tracks are written by singer-guitarist John Parker Compton, whose songwriting evokes Joni Mitchell and later singer- songwriters in the 15 years surrounding this album’s release.
Renaissance – A Song For All Seasons (1978) Sire/SRK 6049 – 1st US Promo Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Renaissance ‎- A Song For All Seasons
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Sire/SRK 6049 | Released: 1978 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
Yes, another outstanding Renaissance album, AMONG THEIR BEST ONES! On this one, the omnipresent & OUTSTANDING classical arrangements are really in the foreground, really participating to the melody! Clearly, Renaissance is a band that is better when having an accompanying orchestra! Again, the style is still strongly baroque symphonic. Just hear this combination of relatively modern keyboards and strings+horn arrangements: SUBLIME! Annie’s lead vocals are very loud, pure and never bland.

Golden Earring – Moontan (1973) MCA Records/MCA-396 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Label: MCA Records/MCA-396 | Released: 1973 | US Issue: 1974 | Genre: Heavy-Progressive

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
This was the first GE album I came in contact with back then. And it was quite a shock, I must say.
Some legendary tracks are featured here, and this album will be the showcase for their great live performances. From basic pop songs in their early days, the band has now evolved into a great hard- rock style tinted with special prog flavours (keys, flute, sax).

Love And Rockets formed in 1985, almost 2 years after the demise of cult goth pioneers Bauhaus. The band re-united Daniel Ash (vocals and guitar), David J (vocals and bass) and Kevin Haskins (drums). Back in the mid-Eighties, when the US alternative scene was just that, Love And Rockets were one of the leading lights. This special release of the band's debut album features a high definition 96 kHz / 24 bit surround mix created by Neil Wilkes from the analogue multi-tracks and also includes three additional bonus tracks from the original session including the single "Ball Of Confusion" and a cover of Pink Floyd's "Lucifer Sam". The original stereo masters, as used on the CD and vinyl, were digitally mixed on to F1 masters in 1985 at 44.1 kHz / 16 bit, so no high resolution analogue copies were created. For the Blu-ray release, Neil Wilkes has created a new HD stereo mix. The release has been approved by original producer John A. Rivers.
