Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition

Read "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe  Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Anyone (and everyone?) will be in turns delighted and surprised upon immersion in the Super Deluxe 50th Anniversary Edition of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The dual sensations commence immediately upon slipping the EMI Studios Abbey Road replica tape box, slightly larger than a foot square, from its slipcover adorned with the famous ...

Bob Dylan
No Direction Home: Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition
Capitol Records
2016

As originally released a decade ago, Martin Scorcese's Bob Dylan documentary No Direction Home is so deeply illuminating it really bears no revisionism that would improve it, at least on its own terms. In turns exhilarating and chilling, particularly ...

Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Deluxe Edition

Read "Sticky Fingers Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In combination with the 2015 'Zip Code' tour, on which the band played the album in its entirety more than once, the reissue of the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers (Rolling Stones Records, 1971) is a valiant and fully-justified effort to restore the significance of the album, the importance of which has suffered over time in comparison ...

Ultimate Sinatra: A Very Good Compilation

Read "Ultimate Sinatra: A Very Good Compilation" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

On December 12, 1915, Francis Albert Sinatra was born in Hoboken, New Jersey. This single birth in this sleepy borough was the first tremor in a musical earthquake that changed the cultural landscape all around the world, forever.

The Band

Even its name is an enigma--The Band: a collection of four Canadians and one Arkansan, born to back up another Arkansan, Ronnie Hawkins, as “Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks," then Bob Dylan and then to exist as their own entity--The Band. Five ...

Louis Prima: Jump Jive and Wail: The Essential Louis Prima

Read "Jump Jive and Wail: The Essential Louis Prima" reviewed by David Rickert

It's likely that Louis Prima would have faded into obscurity if not for the Gap ad that featured young, khaki-wearing twenty-somethings swing dancing to “Jump, Jive, and Wail. That ad appeared at the height of the nineties swing revival and brought the song back into circulation, appearing on several swing compilations designed to make a quick ...

Keely Smith: The Essential Capitol Collection

Read "The Essential Capitol Collection" reviewed by David Rickert

With the overabundance of female vocalists making records in the fifties, it's not much of a surprise that Keely Smith has become lost in the shuffle today. If known at all, it's probably for her records with Louis Prima and not for her work as a solo artist. This is a shame, for Smith was a ...

Dave Koz: At the Movies

Read "At the Movies" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

There's nothing quite like the feeling of walking into a movie theatre, settling into your seat as the lights go down and, for the next two hours, being transported into a different reality than the normal world we inhabit. Saxophonist Dave Koz understands the thrill of discovery in the dark, and At The Movies is all ...

Serge Chaloff: Boston Blow-Up!

Read "Boston Blow-Up!" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Pubblicato finalmente su CD, questo disco di Serge Chaloff è stato una rarità per decenni. Già pochi anni dopo la sua incisione per la Capitol (aprile 1955) andò fuori catalogo, rimanendo in quel limbo fino ai primi anni ottanta, quando l'etichetta Affinity ne curò una fugace riedizione. Considerando che riemerge sul mercato ogni venticinque anni, chi se lo perde ...
