On February 7, 1964, The Beatles arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, greeted by scores of screaming, swooning fans who rushed the gate to catch a glimpse of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they took their first steps on American soil. Two nights later, on Sunday, February 9, 73 million viewers in the U.S. and millions more in Canada tuned in to CBS to watch The Beatles make their American television debut on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’ In what remains one of the world’s top-viewed television events of all time, The Beatles performed five songs on the live broadcast and ‘Beatlemania,’ already in full, feverish bloom in The Beatles’ native U.K., was unleashed with blissful fervor across America and around the world. The British Invasion had begun. The new 13 CD box set THE U.S. ALBUMS commemorates the 50th anniversary of these history-making events, spanning 1964’s MEET THE BEATLES! to 1970’s HEY JUDE. The Beatles’ U.S. albums differed from the band’s U.K. albums in a variety of ways, including different track lists, song mixes, album titles, and art. The box set includes the following titles: (Disc 1) MEET THE BEATLES!, (Disc 2) THE BEATLES’ SECOND ALBUM, (Disc 3) A HARD DAY’S NIGHT [ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK], (Disc 4) SOMETHING NEW, (Disc 5) THE BEATLES’ STORY, (Disc 6) BEATLES ’65, (Disc 7) THE EARLY BEATLES, (Disc 8) BEATLES VI, (Disc 9) HELP! [ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK] , (Disc 10) RUBBER SOUL, (Disc 11) YESTERDAY AND TODAY, (Disc 12) REVOLVER, (Disc 13) HEY JUDE. These albums were originally issued between 1964 and 1970 by Capitol Records, Apple Records, and United Artists in the United States. These new releases seek to replicate the unique listening experience heard by Americans at the time by preserving the sequences, timings, and artwork found on the albums. Capitol’s engineers in the 1960s took great care to produce what they believed to be the best possible sound for the playback equipment in use at that time. Due to the limitations of the record players of the day, engineers often compressed the sound by raising the volume of the softer passages and lowering the volume for the louder parts of the songs. They also reduced the bass frequencies since too much bass could cause the record to skip. In some cases, reverb was added to the tracks to make them sound more “American.” The CDs are packaged in miniature vinyl sleeves that faithfully recreate the original U.S. LP releases down to the finest detail, including the inner sleeves. 11 original U.S. albums presented in both mono and stereo. Hey Jude and The Beatles’ Story are in stereo only. A Hard Day’s Night [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack], The Beatles’ Story, Yesterday And Today, Hey Jude and the U.S. version of Revolver are presented on CD for the first time. Yesterday And Today features the original album cover of The Beatles posing with raw meat and baby dolls. The package also comes with a collectible sticker of the subsequent Yesterday And Today cover art. Also included is a 64-page booklet which includes a new essay examining the U.S. albums and their historical significance, written by American author and television executive Bill Flanagan. The box set’s dimensions are: 6 inches wide x 6 1/8 inches tall x 3 ¼ inches thick.

The Animals – The Mickie Most Years And More (5CD Box Set) (ABKCO Records Japan 2013) [FLAC]

The Animals – The Mickie Most Years And More (5CD Box Set) (ABKCO Records Japan 2013) FLAC

Publishing year : 2013 | Country : UK | Audio Codec : FLAC (*. flac) | Rip type : image +. cue | Duration : 3:15:02 | 1.29 GB

They were right among the first rank of British Invasion bands, with 11 American chart hits in their first two years of existence. They were responsible for some of the most enduring recordings of their era, songs like “The House of the Rising Sun” (which famously caused Bob Dylan to jump out of his car seat when he first heard it on the radio) and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” And their lead singer, Eric Burdon, had (and still has) one of the most distinctive voices in all of rock ‘n’ roll. Yet, unlike their famous peers, the Animals have never had a box set devoted to their work…till now, 50 years after their first release! The Mickie Most Years and More offers for the first time ever on CD the group’s first four American albums (all of which charted, the first three produced by Mickie Most) The Animals, The Animals on Tour, Animal Tracks and Animalization in their original mono versions, all newly remastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering from the original tapes. And each album features a bevy of bonus tracks, 16 in all, including their first release ever, the I Just Wanna Make Love to You EP that came out on the Graphic Sound label in 1963 (later reissued by Decca in 1965 as In the Beginning There Was Early Animals), four tracks previously unreleased in the U.S., three single versions (including “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” and “It’s My Life”), four alternate versions (three in stereo) of such tracks as “Talkin’ ‘Bout You” and “Don’t Bring Me Down,” and one U.K.-only track (“Roadrunner).” Liner notes to each album are by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke and, to sweeten the pot even more, we’re including an Animals T-shirt (100% cotton; size extra large) exclusive to this set. No collection of British Invasion and, for that matter, ‘0s rock and roll is complete without these records…this collection brings it on home. Brought to you by ABKCO Music and Records and Real Gone Music!

UK five CD collection from the Jazz great. In 1985, Miles Davis shocked the music world by moving from Columbia to Warner Brothers. He immediately started working on an album called Perfect Way after a tune by Scritti Politti, later renamed Tutu. When Tutu was released in 1986, it re-ignited Miles Davis’ career, crossing over into the Rock and Pop markets and winning Davis two Grammy Awards – the album was a key factor in raising Davis’ status to an international superstar. This box set includes the Warner Bros studio albums Tutu, Amandla and Doo-Bop, the Dingo and Siesta soundtracks and live recordings with Quincy Jones and the likes of Kenny Garrett, Foley and Adam Holzman. The set also includes four previously unreleased tracks, from the Rubberband Sessions. The liner notes were provided by leading Jazz critic Ashley Kahn. Warner. 2011.

ZARD – forever you (1995) [WAV]

ZARDの通算6枚目アルバム。コンスタントなリリースは毎年同じなのだが、ただ前作から少しロックよりに近づいている感がある。空前のブームから多少定番アーティストに移行した頃の楽曲は、ストリングスなども効果的にとりいれていて優しい感じに仕上がっている。 (C)RS
