Joe Satriani ‎- Not Of This Earth (1986) (24-Bit/96Khz + 16-Bit/44.1Khz) (Vinyl Rip)

Joe Satriani ‎– Not Of This Earth (Featuring “Memories”)
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Relativity ‎/ 88561-8110-1 | US Release: 1986 | Genre: Hard-Rock

I chose the hit “Memories” from this LP, because is where one can find all the versatility and virtuosity of Satriani.
And not in vain to remember: Satriani before starting his solo career, he was nothing more and nothing less than the teacher of renowned guitarists, like names some to Eddie Van Halen and the first guitar of Frank Zappa, Steve Vai. Why don’t say the amount of guitarists “copy” of Satriani?
This is his first plate (1986), but my issue is the second, in “blue vinyl”.

Greenslade ‎- Spyglass Guest (1974) (24-Bit/96Khz + 16-Bit/44.1Khz) (Vinyl Rip)

Greenslade ‎– Spyglass Guest
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Mercury / SRM 1-1015 | US Release: 1974 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Unlike many fellow reviewers, I don’t think at all that “Spyglass Guest” is a major artistic turndown in Greenslade’s career; while not being obviously as brilliant as its two preceding albums, it is full of good musical ideas, and the energy is still there, palpable and shining brightly. I can’t deny that the level of energy has decreased a bit: the reason for that is that an important fracture was starting to show the cracks in the band’s integrity – Greenslade and Lawson replaced their mutual complementation for a state of sheer rivalry, with each one of them barely contributing in the instrumentation for the pieces written by the other. But I can tell by the opening track ‘Spirit of the Dance’ that the essence of the band’s musical personality remains untouched, and also that the rules of exquisiteness and melodic sensibility continue to trace and shape Greenslade’s direction. Actually, I regard the sequence of tracks 1-5 as fantastic. After the effective, catchy opener, comes the first sung track titled ‘Little Red Fry-Up’, one more showcase for Lawson’s precise keyboard skills and peculiar singing. The absence of Greenslade’s performing input and the presence of a guest guitar soloist on this one reveal an increasing interest in the band for assuming a rockier direction for their jazz- oriented prog. as well as the aforementioned internal tension between both keyboardists. Then comes ‘Rainbow’, perhaps the eeriest piece ever in Greenslade’s history: nowhere does Lawson get as ethereal as in this number. Its first section consists of a dialogue between grand piano and synth multi-layers, caught under a storming rain and shades of percussion and drums; then comes the second section, in which Lawson lays his soft electric piano lines while his voice resounds in both the lead and the backing chorale roles. A really inventive way to translate the transition from rain to rainbow into a musical context. ‘Siam Seesaw’ also includes a spirit of serenity in the main motif that opens up and closes down the track, in which the harpsichord, electric piano and acoustic guitar display an elegant dialogue; this Reeves-penned number is properly enhanced by a faster bluesy interlude. The album’s tour-de- force ‘Joie de Vivre’ finds the band incorporating some folky sources into a symphonic context: Graham Smith’s impeccable violin interventions sure help to build this particular element up. The following three numbers prove not to be able to keep up with the level of musical magic achieved by the preceding pieces. Had ‘Red Light’ been developed further, it wouldn’t have been reduced to a nice Lawson effort to approach the Steely Dan thing. ‘Melancholic Race’ goes more places, but it doesn’t match the splendour of the previous instrumentals, while the closure ‘Theme for an Imaginary Western’ (a cover of a Jack Bruce bluesy ballad) is simply OK, which means that the listener is left without an outstanding climax to leave them truly amazed. Overall rating: 3 ½ – 4 stars.

Dave Mason ‎- Dave Mason (1974) (24-Bit/96Khz + 16-Bit/44.1Khz) (Vinyl Rip)

Dave Mason ‎– Dave Mason (Featuring “All Along The Watchtower”)
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Genre: Classic-Rock | Label: Columbia / PC 33096 | Release: 1974

Using his touring band, which included keyboard player Mike Finnigan and guitarist Jim Krueger, Dave Mason turned in a strong pop/rock collection on his second, self-titled Columbia album. “Show Me Some Affection” was one of those songs that should have been a hit single, Mason recut a fuller version of “Every Woman,” originally heard on It’s Like You Never Left, and the album also included Mason’s version of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” in an arrangement patterned after the one by Jimi Hendrix, on which Mason had played six years earlier. (Originally released by Columbia Records as Columbia 33096, Dave Mason was reissued on CD by One Way Records as One Way 26080 on October 31, 1995.)

Andy Narell – Slow Motion (1985) (24-Bit/96Khz + 16-Bit/44.1Khz) (Vinyl Rip)

Andy Narell – Slow Motion – 1985
Vinyl Rip in 24 Bit-96 kHz | Redbook 16 Bit-44 kHz | FLAC | Cue | No Log | Scans | 930 MB + 263 MB
1985 / Genre: Jazz-World Fusion / HipPocket Records – DE

More often than not, the steel pans are used for playing the traditional sounds of Trinidad. Andy Narell has successfully utilized them in a variety of non-traditional ways. On the ambitious and highly eclectic fusion release Slow Motion, elements of everything from Afro-Cuban salsa to Brazilian samba to African music are fair game for the adventurous, even visionary improviser (who is also heard on electric keyboards).
“A nice first introduction to the music of Andy Narell; HipPocket Records and Windham Hill are related and you can hear that; crystal clear and dynamic open sound on this album”! Enjoy this beautiful music!

Note > No silence was deleted; please burn this album gapless..

Roy Orbison Black & White Night (2007) Bluray AVC 1080i DTS-HD MA 5.1

Recorded at the Ambassador Hotel’s Coconut Grove nightclub in Los Angeles, Roy Orbison and Friends, A Black and White Night is a marvelous concert celebrating one of the most popular music singers of the 20th century. Joined on stage by a number of well known musicians – Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, T Bone Burnett, J D Souther, James Burton, Tom Waits, Steven Soles, Jennifer Warnes, K.D. Lang, Jackson Browne, Jerry Scheff, Ron Tutt, Steven Soles, and Glen Hardin – Roy Orbison performed seventeen of his greatest hits, including “Dream Baby”, Blu Bayou”, “Candyman”, “Go, Go, Go (Down The Line)” and “Oh Pretty Woman”.
Clocking in at a little over 60 min, the concert was filmed specifically for Cable TV (it was first broadcast on HBO on January 3rd, 1988). Directed by Tony Mitchell and edited by T Bone Burnett (also contributing as a musical director), this was also an event proving that Orbison was admired by everyone, from casual fans to fellow musicians and singers.
What really impresses in Roy Orbison and Friends, A Black and White Night, however, are the fantastic improvisations courtesy of Orbison and his guests. Switching between blues, rock, and even country music, these remarkable musicians deliver once in a lifetime show where the atmosphere is simply impossible to describe with simple words (all you need to do is see how Kris Kristofferson and a few of the other spectators in the Coconut Grove react to the music to know exactly what I mean).
The actual concert is also notably well filmed. Tony Mitchell’s camera provides a terrific view of the stage, the supporting musicians and singers as well as the enthusiastic audience constantly applauding Orbison and his guests. Finally, the concert also reveals an unusually stylish look that certainly enhances tremendously the sense of nostalgia Orbison’s singing evokes.
