Cyndi Lauper, Armin van Buuren, Vangelis, The Raveonettes and more
“I get the greatest feeling when I'm singing. It's other-worldly. Your feet are anchored into the Earth and into this energy force that comes up through your feet and goes up the top of your head and maybe you're holding hands with the angels or the stars, I have no idea.” - Cyndi Lauper

De Nederlandse band Skik brak in 1997 door na het uitbrengen van de singles “Op Fietse” en “Hoe kan dat nou”. Best Tof omvat alle hoogtepunten uit het omvangrijke oeuvre van de Drentse mannen. De reeks aan klassiekers die ze op hun naam hebben geschreven vormen een aangename afwisseling met de wat minder bekende pareltjes.
The second full-length album of Danish Fifties/Psych Pop duo The Raveonettes was released in 2005. Special appearances on this album are made by Maureen Tucker of Velvet Underground on drums, Martin Rev on drum machine, and Ronnie Spector, also known as Veronica Bennett of the fabulous Ronettes [MOVLP674] on backup vocals.
Nuovo Cinema Paradiso was a critical and box-office success and is regarded by many as a classic. It is particularly renowned for the 'kissing scenes' montage at the film's end. Ennio Morricone (1928-2020) composed and arranged the score of the movie.

Star People Nation is Theo Croker's most personal project yet, something Croker describes as an intimate exploration of “the everyday rituals of blackness.”

Cyndi Lauper's second studio album True Colors was a successful one, earning her two nominations at the 29th Annual Grammy Awards and a number 4 position in the Billboard 200 chart. With this release, Lauper wanted to prove that she was no longer interested in being just an "icon".
Gift is a great compilation of Vangelis his compositions from Heaven and Hell (1975) to Direct (1988). It can be seen as a retrospective of seminal ambient, vocal & choral works made by the pioneering new age keyboardist. Gift includes three fantastic collaborations with John Anderson (Yes).
