Kansas were at the top of their game in 1977 with the release of the immensely successful album Point of Know Return. This progressive rock classic can now be found in stores as a limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on flaming coloured vinyl.
Troublegum is widely regarded as Therapy? at their musical and commercial peak. It has a distinctive melodically dark, metal-like sound, which is why it's more than fitting that it is now available on black vinyl.
999 released their self-titled debut album 999 in 1978 to much critical acclaim by music critics and fans of the punk genre. The record is now released on black vinyl.
Named after the UK's emergency telephone number, the English punk rock band 999 was founded in London by singer and guitarist Nick Cash, and Guy Days. They recruited Jon Watson on bass and Pablo LaBritain on drums, LaBritain having briefly played with the Clash. 999 soon established themselves as a powerful live act on the London punk scene. “I'm Alive” became a firm favourite in the punk clubs.
Tony Fruscella was an under-recorded mellow, lyrical, cool jazz trumpeter. His cool tone, influenced by Miles Davis and swing-era veteran Joe Thomas, made him a sideman in the early '50s for artists like Lester Young, Gerry Mulligan, and Stan Getz.
Therapy? are an alternative metal band from Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1989 by guitarist-vocalist Andy Cairns and drummer-vocalist Fyfe Ewing. To complete the lineup, the band recruited bassist Michael McKeegan.
Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band formed in 1995. The group's music incorporates aspects of progressive rock, pop, heavy metal, and post-hardcore. Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow (often shortened to No World for Tomorrow), is their critically acclaimed fourth studio album, originally released in 2007.
Peter Tosh's most “accessible” solo album, Mama Africa, would also be his best seller outside Jamaica, the only one of his albums to break into the U.K. Top 50 and even push into the bottom reaches of the U.S. charts.
With the help of a symphony orchestra of 42 musicians, Hooverphonic provided one of the absolute highlights of their tremendous career with their concerts and album release of With Orchestra Live.
James Giuffre was an American jazz clarinetist, saxophonist, composer, and arranger, notable for his development of forms of jazz which allowed for free interplay between the musicians. His 1960 album Western Suite features an unusual trio of clarinet, guitar and valve trombone.
Back in 1977, the LP Point Of Know Return marked the commercial peak of Kansas. The Progressive Rock band had experienced tremendous success with their previous release (1976's Leftoverture) and were no longer starving for a hit, yet the sessions for their fifth album were tense. Steve Walsh briefly left the group in the middle of these sessions. Nevertheless, the LP turned out an even bigger success for the band than its predecessor.
In the Middle of Nowhere is the fourth studio album by Modern Talking. It was released on 10 November 1986 in Germany and in other territories. The album contains the international hit single “Geronimo's Cadillac”.
