Earthling is the 20th studio album by David Bowie, released in February 1997. The album showcases an electronica-influenced sound partly inspired by the industrial and drum and bass culture of the 1990s like Prodigy and Underworld.
This was the first album Bowie self-produced since 1974. Making extensive use of sampling their own material on high BPMs, the album was the first Bowie album to be recorded digitally.
The first pressing consists of 2000 numbered copies on transparent green vinyl. The second pressing consists of 2000 numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl.
Released in 1966, The Swinger From Rio is perhaps the best example of a genre defining record, capturing pianist Sergio Mendes playing straight up Bossa Nova with a stellar line-up of seasoned musicians.
The album reserves a special guest spot for the famed Antônio Carlos Jobim on violin, whose writing credits include the Jazz standard "The Girl From Ipanema". Jobim is further credited with being on the forefront of the Bossa Nova style, a Brazilian combination of Samba and Jazz.
Major Lance was one of the leading figures of Chicago Soul during the '60s and the top-selling artist for OKeh Records during the decade. His mid-sixties output consists of some of the most popular good-time R&B of its era.
During this time, the majority of his songs were written by his childhood friend Curtis Mayfield. Fittingly for Major Lance's smooth voice, Mayfield crafted urban, uptown and polished songs like "The Monkey Time" and "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um".
Its score was written by Franz Waxman, the legendary German-American classic composer with an impressive number of Academy Award Nominations movies to his name.
Especially for Halloween, we've managed to release Franz Waxman's The Bride Of Frankenstein OST on vinyl for the first time ever!
