It's all in the numbers

4 classic albums this week: our first Vangelis album, two albums of Bonnie Raitt and Randy Newman and our 19th (!) Miles Davis album.

RANDY NEWMAN - FAUST

Randy Newman - FaustRandy Newman's Faust is a 1993 musical based the work on the classic story of Faust. Newman borrowed elements from the version by Goethe, as well as Milton's Paradise Lost, but updated the story to the modern day and infused it with humorous cynicism.

Vocal duties are co handled by James Taylor, Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt and Don Henley. Available on vinyl for the first time!

MILES DAVIS - DOO-BOP

Miles Davis - Doo-BopMiles Davis was on the forefront of many new subgenres of music; he even invented the mix of Jazz and Hip Hop with Doo-Bop (1992), a collaboration with producer Easy Mo Bee. Bee was involved in production work for Big Daddy Kane and Notorious B.I.G., which earned him grand stature in Hip Hop circles.

A worthy goodbye to the master of the Jazz trumpet.

BONNIE RAITT - THE GLOW

Bonnie Raitt - The GlowBonnie Raitt's The Glow (1979) captured her in an important period of her career, taking on popular cover material such as "I Thank You" by Sam & Dave, "Your Good Thing (Is About To End)" by Lou Rawls and Jackson Browne's "You're Gonna Get What's Coming".

The Glow is a wonderful Raitt exercise, belonging in the ranks of best Raitt albums.

VANGELIS - ANTARCTICA

Vangelis - AntarcticaAntarctica is the Vangelis soundtrack to the film Nankyoku Monogatari by Koreyoshi Kurahara, released in 1983. The story is about two Japanese scientists, Ushioda and Ochi, who develop a bond with their sled dogs while on an expedition in Antarctica.

The soundtrack successfully captures the chilly and lonely experience of the cold continent, with the layered synthesized music Vangelis is known and revered for.
