A Touch of Darkness

The Guess Who, Mikey Dread, New Cool Collective, Annelie, Vangelis, Sinner and the soundtracks Daughters of Darkness and Back to Titanic

Let's kick-off with American Woman, the last The Guess Who album which features lead guitarist Randy Bachman. He brings some of the best guitar riffs the band has ever recorded, especially on the hit single "American Woman". Mikey Dread's second album, Dread at the Controls, was released in 1979 and can be seen as a crucial album in the reggae world. The Jamaican singer played an important role in the popularization of reggae during the 1970s. He recorded some of his most superb rhythms for this album, available as a limited edition of 750 copies on orange coloured vinyl. New Cool Collective have been happily grooving on 25 years of fame thanks to their unique mix of jazz, dance, Latin, salsa, afrobeat and boogaloo. The pioneers in the Dutch jazz scene selected 10 of their best songs to feature on their new compilation album XXV. The album is available as a first pressing of 750 individually numbered copies on turquoise vinyl.

In recent years, Annelie lent her vocal talents, instrumental proficiency and musical versatility to other artists. On her debut album After Midnight, she deliberately explores and gravitates within the limitations of a single instrument. The sense of time immediately disappears once you get acquainted with the music's deft, spiralling progressions. The Greek composer Vangelis composed the epic choral symphony Mythodea in 1993. With the support of NASA and the Greek government he recorded the symphony in the Greece's Music Hall together with two harpists, the 120-person chorus of the Greek National Opera, the 75-person London Metropolitan Orchestra and some percussionists. Mythodea is available on vinyl for the first time and the package includes a 4-page booklet with pictures and liner notes. Sinner's album Touch of Sin features a lot of their famous speed riffs and heavy melodies, with some rocking edges. The album is available as a limited numbered edition of 666 copies on coloured (Solid blue & black mixed) vinyl.

The soundtrack Francois De Roubaix recorded to the erotic vampire film Daughters of Darkness consists of different musical elements and it's a seductive score. The movie has been voted by authors, directors, actors and critics as one of the top horror films of all time. Daughters of Darkness is available as a first pressing of 666 numbered copies on bloody-red vinyl. Composer James Horner created a new suite of light and dark music to represent the "soul" of the Titanic music. The Back to Titanic package includes a 4 page booklet, replicas of the original Titanic launch card and boarding pass, and got a gatefold sleeve with metallic embossing. This release is available on vinyl for the first time and pressed on 5.000 numbered copies on gold vinyl.
