#7/RollingStone/The 25 Greatest Christmas Albums of All Time/ The early Beach Boys could turn National Podiatrist Recognition Day into a party, so you know they're gonna knock Christmas out of the park. Their smiles 'n' sweaters playfulness is all over this 1964 collection. The best of the album's six originals is the darkly funny "Santa's Beard," in which Mike Love takes his five-year-old brother to meet Santa and the kid pulls the cotton falsie off Saint Nick's face in a life-altering moment of mall-bought demystification. The rest of the record mixes sunny tunes like "Little Saint Nick," a rewiring of "Little Deuce Coupe," with fun experiments like the jazzy "Frosty the Snowman." And the orchestra-backed versions of "White Christmas" and "Blue Christmas," both poignantly sung by Brian Wilson, hint toward Pet Sounds majesty.

Television - Marquee Moon (1977/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Television
Title: Marquee Moon
Genre: Rock, Art-Punk, Proto-Punk, New Wave
Label: © Elektra Records
Release Date: 1977/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: ponomusic.com
Duration: 46:20
Recorded: September 1976, A&R Recording in New York City

Marquee Moon is a revolutionary album, but it's a subtle, understated revolution. Without question, it is a guitar rock album -- it's astonishing to hear the interplay between Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd -- but it is a guitar rock album unlike any other. Where their predecessors in the New York punk scene, most notably the Velvet Underground, had fused blues structures with avant-garde flourishes, Television completely strip away any sense of swing or groove, even when they are playing standard three-chord changes. Marquee Moon is comprised entirely of tense garage rockers that spiral into heady intellectual territory, which is achieved through the group's long, interweaving instrumental sections, not through Verlaine's words. That alone made Marquee Moon a trailblazing album -- it's impossible to imagine post-punk soundscapes without it. Of course, it wouldn't have had such an impact if Verlaine hadn't written an excellent set of songs that conveyed a fractured urban mythology unlike any of his contemporaries. From the nervy opener, "See No Evil," to the majestic title track, there is simply not a bad song on the entire record. And what has kept Marquee Moon fresh over the years is how Television flesh out Verlaine's poetry into sweeping sonic epics. --AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Georg Philipp Telemann - Telemann in Major - Pratum Integrum Orchestra (2005) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88.2kHz

Сomposer: Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767)
Artist: Pratum Integrum Orchestra
Title: Telemann in Major
Genre: Classical
Label: © Caro Mitis
Item Number: CM 0032005
Release Date: 2005
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: SACD ISO
Duration: 01:07:53
Recorded: 21–22.06.05, 24.06.05, 28.06.05 5th Studio of The Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (RTR) Moscow, Russia

We have here world premiere recordings of every single work on the disc. This is not such a difficult achievement considering we’re dealing with Telemann – one of the most prolific composers who every lived. The concept of this album is that the vast majority of Telemann’s huge opera were in major keys – this collection leans heavily toward the key of G Major, though with a twist at the conclusion of a work in G Minor. Many different European musical cultures are to be found in Telemann’s music, in often unexpected combinations. His late Baroque style includes movements in the opening Orchestral Suite of first a French overture, then an Italian air, and later some less elegant German music with sounds of native hunting horns and bagpipes. This is one of seven orchestral suites by Telemann, and six of them end with a savage dance called a Furie.

A perceptive stylist and a man with an inexhaustibly inventive mind, a musical erudite whose creative heritage in all the genres prevailing in his time is so great that its scope and variety of solutions capture even the wildest imagination, a man epitomizing the glory of German art in the eyes of enlightened Europeans of the first part of the 18th century, Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–1767) is one of those composers whose artistic work has not been properly appreciated yet.
