Kansas, Golden Earring, Sinner, The Ethiopians, Scientist & Prince Jammy, Chicken Shack and the soundtrack Pope Francis: A Man of His Word
A symphonic masterpiece, that's the best way to describe the track "Song for America" by the American band Kansas. It's the title track from the album of the same name and characteristic for its electronic guitar melodies, sparkling synths and impressive violin play. The music is a truly fascinating blend of different rock styles, making it one of the definite milestones of American prog. Golden Earring's Love sweat is a record with cover songs that influenced the gentlemen during the roaring sixties. From The Beatles and The Animals to James Gang and Bo Diddley. Love sweat is available as a first pressing of 1.500 individually numbered copies on gold vinyl. On Sinner's sixth album Dangerous Charm their musical style changed from metal to music with the focus on the keyboards and synths. The release is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on Yellow vinyl.

The beloved Jamaican harmony group The Ethiopians released their debut album Engine 54 in 1968. Train imagery is the main focus on the album, with excellent falsettos and consistent music from the prime of the rocksteady period. The record is available as a limited edition of 1000 Individually numbered copies on orange coloured vinyl. Dub music mixer Scientist collaborated with the Jamaican mixer and producer Prince Jammy a couple of times, most prominent on their album Scientist & Prince Jammy Strike back! Sweeping with echo's and dubs it's an artefact for the style of late '70s,  early '80s reggae. The album is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on orange coloured vinyl.

Pope Francis: A Man of His Word is a 2018 documentary film by Wim Wenders, focusing on the life and goals of Pope Francis.
