XTC – Nonsuch (1992/2013) [Blu-Ray Audio Rip 24bit/96kHz]

XTC – Nonsuch (1992/2013)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time – 234:45 minutes | 4,86 GB
Blu-Ray Audio Rip | Sourced Track – LPCM 2.0 Stereo | Artwork

XTC’s classic 1992 album, the first in a series of XTC albums reissues got a new life as CD/Blu-Ray edition. This web-package contains the original stereo mix, new instrumental mixes (made from the original multitrack tapes by Steven Wilson), and a lot of bonus material. Steve Wilson produced the new mixes with the input of founder band member Andy Partridge and the full approval of the band. Presented in special packaging with an expanded booklet and sleeve-notes by Andy Partridge, Colin Moulding and Dave Gregory.

Since Skylarking, each XTC album was carefully composed and crafted, and Nonsuch is no different. Working with producer Gus Dudgeon (Elton John), XTC crafted their most immaculate album to date with Nonsuch. A measured and reflective record, recalling the Beach Boys more than the Beatles, the album retains some of their late-’80s psychedelic flourishes, but those have been integrated into an elaborate, lush pop setting that falls somewhere between Skylarking and Oranges & Lemons. While it lacks the thematic unity of Skylarking, as well as the grandstanding eclecticism of Oranges & Lemons, Nonsuch is in many ways more musically consistent, presenting a set of 17 wonderfully detailed and immediately catchy pop songs, ranging from the relatively rocking “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead” to the sweet “Holly Up on Poppy.” Occasionally, the album dips slightly lyrically — Colin Moulding’s “The Smartest Monkeys” and “War Dance” are a little too preachy — but never musically, making Nonsuch a modest, minor masterpiece.

The Sex Pistols – Never Mind The Bollocks (1977/2014) [Blu-Ray Audio Rip 24-96]

Sex Pistols – Never Mind The Bollocks (1977/2014)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time – 110:11 minutes | 2,44 GB
Blu-Ray Audio Rip | Sourced Track – LPCM 2.0 Stereo

High Fidelity Pure Audio edition of the classic Sex Pistols album Never Mind The Bollocks…. Here’s The Sex Pistols. Expanded with four B-Sides & two live show from 1977. 30 tracks total.

While mostly accurate, dismissing Never Mind the Bollocks as merely a series of loud, ragged midtempo rockers with a harsh, grating vocalist and not much melody would be a terrible error. Already anthemic songs are rendered positively transcendent by Johnny Rotten’s rabid, foaming delivery. His bitterly sarcastic attacks on pretentious affectation and the very foundations of British society were all carried out in the most confrontational, impolite manner possible. Most imitators of the Pistols’ angry nihilism missed the point: underneath the shock tactics and theatrical negativity were social critiques carefully designed for maximum impact. Never Mind the Bollocks perfectly articulated the frustration, rage, and dissatisfaction of the British working class with the establishment, a spirit quick to translate itself to strictly rock & roll terms. the Pistols paved the way for countless other bands to make similarly rebellious statements, but arguably none were as daring or effective. It’s easy to see how the band’s roaring energy, overwhelmingly snotty attitude, and Rotten’s furious ranting sparked a musical revolution, and those qualities haven’t diminished one bit over time. Never Mind the Bollocks is simply one of the greatest, most inspiring rock records of all time.

Lenny Kravitz – Are You Gonna Go My Way (1993/2014) [Blu-Ray Audio Rip 24bit/192kHz]

Lenny Kravitz – Are You Gonna Go My Way (1993/2014)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/192 kHz | Time – 46:35 minutes | 1,95 GB
Blu-Ray Audio Rip | Sourced Track – LPCM 2.0 Stereo

The cover indicates that Are You Gonna Go My Way is Lenny Kravitz’s bid for rock stardom. Designed in the style of an early-’70s record, it features Kravitz in hippie clothing, apparently exposing himself to a photographer — in other words, he’s a dangerously sexy counterculture rebel. That may have been true in 1970, but in 1993, he simply sounds like a weird sideshow exhibit, the man who never lived past 1973. Of course, it’s easy to make such potshots, but Kravitz opens himself up to such attacks. No other artist, especially a successful one, has been quite so devoted to the past and ignorant of the present. Since he has considerable talent for songcraft and production, Kravitz isn’t nearly as bad as he could be, and Are You Gonna Go My Way is just as enjoyable and more accomplished than its predecessors. This time around, Hendrix is his chief influence, as evidenced by the roaring title track, and he does expand that with his traditional Lennon, Curtis Mayfield, and Prince obsessions. Song for song, it’s his most consistent album, although by the end of the record, his painstaking reproduction of classic rock sounds begins to appear a bit too studied, suggesting that Kravitz may have hit a creative wall. Nevertheless, that does nothing to diminish the enjoyment of this record.

Symphonies of Wind Instruments (2013) Bluray – HDCLUB

Symphonies of Wind Instruments

“A composer speaking about his own problems is also speaking about the problems of mankind,” asserted Schoenberg. “I was made a revolutionary in spite of myself,” said Stravinsky. Hindemith spoke of a forthcoming “big battle over new music”, and added, “the need will be to prove whether or not the music of our day, including my own, is capable of survival.” Today these composers are regarded as being three of the most seminal figures in music history in the first half of the 20th century. Meanwhile a composer at the end of the same century, Rolf Wallin, has written music that portrays “the dancing dynamics of the universe”, where nothing is stable and everything is volatile. The works featured on this album by these four composers reflect the universal and timeless balance between tradition and innovation, and the Royal Norwegian Navy Band under Ingar Bergby illuminate this balance in their recordings of these works, and breathe new life into this music.

Remote Galaxy by Flint Juventino Beppe (2012) Blu-ray 1080i AVC Auro-3D 9.1 – HDCLUB

REMOTE GALAXY by Flint Juventino Beppe

Can the dualism of life, nature and art be expressed in pure music? This is the question the multi-talented composer Flint Juventino Beppe – formerly known as Fred Jonny Berg – has set out to answer. The album Remote Galaxy is a journey in time and space, a journey given meaning by the album’s music and philosophy. The music is uncompromisingly honest, with a genuine power of its own. Using well-known acoustic technology, the composer takes us to some unusual and, for most of us, unknown places.

Remote Galaxy continues the journey of 2L’s Grammy nominated album Flute Mystery, and again the Philharmonia Orchestra is conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy to interpret these adventurous scores. The composer’s deep spiritual interest in nature, philosophy and space is as central in the universe of Remote Galaxy as it was in Flute Mystery. Beppe’s music leaves a unique fingerprint in the artistic world: there is quite simply nothing like it.

The individual and inventive nature of his orchestral works demands a rich palette of instruments and an extended use of woodwinds, brass and organ. As solo instruments, the intense but delicate sound of the clarinet, the scope of the flute’s range of expression and the special characteristics of the rarely used viola da gamba make for an inimitable atmosphere captured in 2L’s innovative surround sound technology. With the introduction of height channels, acoustic reflections create a natural sound presence originating from both around and above the listener. The Auro-3D format on this Pure Audio Blu-ray features sound reproduction that is more realistic than anything you’ve heard before. It delivers a new standard in immersion, fully enveloping the audience in a cocoon of life-like audio.
5.1 + 7.1 + 9.1 SURROUND + STEREO produced in DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition 352kHz/24bit) by Lindberg Lyd AS. Facebook Photo Album from the Recording Sessions at Watford Colosseum

The whole spectrum of Beppe’s musical philosophy is mirrored in his works: “It’s really as simple as it is complicated – I breathe in what life has to offer, and breathe out what I have to offer life. I have given up trying to grasp what actually happens in the process from impression to expression.” Beppe is diagnosed with Tourette’s and Asperger’s syndromes, and his approach to life is self-reflective and as uncompromising as his music: “When I take a look at the mountains or the sky, I realize I cannot spend my time on anything but grandness. It’s that or nothing.”

Stan Getz & João Gilberto featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim – Getz/Gilberto (1964/2013) [High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-Ray Disc]

Stan Getz & João Gilberto featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim – Getz/Gilberto (1964/2013) [High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-Ray Disc]

LPCM 2.0  and DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 & Dolby TrueHD 2.0 | 24bit / 96kHz | Time – 00:33:40 minutes | 3,66 GB

Originally released in March of 1964, this legendary collaboration between saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist Joao Gilbertocame at the end of the bossa nova craze Getz had sparked in 1962 with Jazz Samba. In fact, Getz had to push for the release of Getz/Gilberto as his record company didn’t want to compete with their own hit. The album ended up spending 96 weeks on the charts and won four Grammy Awards. Getz/Gilberto remains one of those rare cases in popular music where commercial success matches the artistic merit.

Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs:

Audio is taken from the original master tapes and mastered in 24-bit/96kHz resolution with a choice of three sound formats: PCM, Dolby True HD, or DTS-HD Master Audio. You can finally enjoy the music in the fidelity originally experienced in the studio.

BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS – LEGEND (BLU-RAY PURE AUDIO DISC)

 

Universal Music Group has gone back to the original master tapes to deliver fully uncompressed, high-resolution versions of many of your favorite albums on Blu-ray Pure Audio Disc. Mastered at 24bit/96kHz, Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs deliver the sound the artists originally heard in the studio when these classic albums were recorded. These discs provide all the recorded musical information. While convenient due to their small file size, today’s heavily compressed music files do not represent the true fidelity of the original album.

•     Recordings are transferred from the original master tapes and delivered in high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz audio

•     No compression is utilized, and the sound quality is vastly superior to MP3 or standard CD

•     Three separate choices of audio file format for playback: PCM 2.0, Dolby True HD, or DTS-HD Master Audio (5.1 available where noted)

•     Your preferred audio format is chosen either by pressing the “Audio” button on your Blu-ray remote or via your onscreen menu display

The classic Bob Marley Best Of album, Legend collects the reggae pioneer’s greatest genre-defining songs, running the gamut from “I Shot the Sheriff” to the meditative “Redemption Song” and the irrepressible “Three Little Birds.” The beauty and simplicity of Bob Marley’s music was as important as his message and Legend is the ideal all-encompassing look at his excellence, warmth and humanity.

Legend is the world’s best-selling reggae album with global sales exceeding 40 million copies, including more than 14 million in the U.S. alone. The RIAA Diamond-certified album holds the distinction of being the second longest-charting album in the history of Billboard magazine, second only to Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked Legendat No. 46 on its “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” list.
