In München steht nicht nur ein Hofbräuhaus - sondern auch die Bar vom Alois Guggenhofer. Diese Bar allerdings ist ein so müder Betrieb, dass der Finanzier, Herr Jansen, sie dichtmachten will. In dieser Not taucht eine rettende Idee auf: Wie wäre es, ein paar knackig-frische Ostfriesinnen in die Bar zu holen und mit ihrem prallen Sex den Laden wieder anzukurbeln? Gesagt, getan. Alois, der Chauffeur Theo sowie die abgeschlaffte Strippering Lisa begeben sich auf die Fahrt nach Ostfriesland und auf die Suche nach hübschen, willigen Mädchen.
Der Sex-Träume Report ist ein weiterer Report-Film, der durch seinen Titel sicherlich für viel Aufmerksamkeit und somit für volle Kinosäle gesorgt hat. Eine Münchner Stadtansicht, schlechte Musik und ein Off-Sprecher: "Betrachten Sie diesen Mann genau. Vielleicht begegnen Sie ihm. Es ist Dr. Heinz Kahlbaum. Diplompsychologe. Er ist 35 Jahre alt und arbeitet an einem populärwissenschaftlichen Werk über die Bedeutung der erotischen und sexuellen Träume in unserem Leben…". Natürlich geht es aber erst einmal weiter mit zahlreichen Straßen-Interviews, die im Laufe des Films immer wieder mit eingebaut werden um die einzelnen Storys voneinander abzugrenzen und das Ganze etwas aufzulockern.
This 24-CD box, which dwarfs even most Bear Family sets in scope, is essentially everything Ellington cut for RCA-Victor over a 46-year period. There are gaps, especially after 1946 when he jumped to Columbia, but otherwise, this is all of it. One quickly discovers that, by virtue of its leader's taste, combined with the good sense of RCA-Victor's recording managers, this was a band that did little, if any, wrong on record…
Reissue with DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. Right from the start, a vastly different Weather Report emerges here, one that reflects co-leader Joe Zawinul's developing obsession with the groove. It is the groove that rules this mesmerizing album, leading off with the irresistible 3/4 marathon deceptively tagged as the "Boogie Woogie Waltz" and proceeding through a variety of Latin-grounded hip-shakers. It is a record of discovery for Zawinul, who augments his Rhodes electric piano with a funky wah-wah pedal, unveils the ARP synthesizer as a melodic instrument and sound-effects device, and often coasts along on one chord.

Bill Evans' Fantasy recordings of 1973-1979 have often been underrated in favor of his earlier work but, as this remarkable nine-CD set continually shows, the influential pianist continued to grow as a musician through the years while holding on to his original conception and distinctive sound. The collection has all of the 98 selections recorded at Evans' 11 Fantasy sessions, including nine numbers from a previously unreleased 1976 concert with his trio. In addition, Evans' appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz radio program is tacked on as a bonus and it is actually among McPartland's finest shows, a fascinating hour of discussion and music with Evans.
This nine-disc box set gathers music from a trio of consecutive Grateful Dead gigs – November 9 – 11, 1973 at their hometown hockey rink Winterland Arena. At the time the band consisted of Jerry Garcia (lead guitar/vocals), Donna Jean Godchaux (vocals), Keith Godchaux (keyboards), Bill Kreutzmann (drums), Phil Lesh (electric bass/vocals), and Bob Weir (rhythm guitar/vocals). In 1973, they atypically played a mere handful of gigs in San Francisco. According to Dennis McNally's liner notes, the run represented within could be considered over half of their Bay Area appearances for the year. That shouldn't suggest that the combo weren't keeping a full calendar, as they played about every five days or so for a total of 72 live shows. As the overwhelming bounty of strong performances on 2008's Winterland 1973: The Complete Recordings substantiates, the combo were operating on all cylinders and – when applicable – at full velocity.
After putting themselves on the hard rock map with Razamanaz, Nazareth took their new, forceful style even further the next year on Loud & Proud. With Roger Glover once again at the controls, the group added even higher levels of distortion and energy to create one of the hardest rocking items in their catalog: "Go Down Fighting" starts the album with a sonic boom thanks to its blend of furious riffing with a breathless tempo, and the group's cover of "Teenage Nervous Breakdown" transforms this Little Feat into a runaway locomotive of hard rock riffing…
