Megadeth - Rust in Peace (1990/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Megadeth
Title: Rust in Peace
Genre: Rock, Heavy Metal, Speed/Thrash Metal, Progressive Metal
Label: © Capitol Records

Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit

Recorded: 1989–90 at Rumbo Recorders in Canoga Park, California

Rust In Peace is held in high regard in the metal community as one of the best thrash/speed metal albums of all time; debuting at #23 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S. and #8 in the U.K. The album showcased a much tighter sound, with Mustaine's writing style adopting a rhythmically complex progressive edge. The musicianship is tight, lyrics are personal, and the sense of amazement never ends. Quite possibly the best combination of intensity and technicality to be found. The album received Grammy nominations in 1990 and 1991 for "Best Metal Performance".

Medtner & Rachmaninov - Piano Sonatas - Steven Osborne (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Сomposer: Nikolai Medtner (1880-1951), Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
Artist: Steven Osborne
Title: Medtner & Rachmaninov - Piano Sonatas
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records
Duration: 71 minutes 59 seconds
Recorded: December 2012, Henry Wood Hall, London, United Kingdom

Steven Osborne has become increasingly admired for his performances and recordings of Russian Romantic piano music, playing with a remarkable level of authority and a rare combination of technical ease, tonal lustre and idiomatic identification. Here he presents an impressive selection from two masters who lived and worked contemporaneously. Both were renowned concert pianists, and both wrote superbly for their instrument. Yet their reputations could not be more divergent. Rachmaninov utterly loved; Medtner only now becoming rehabilitated.
Medtner’s ‘Sonata Romantica’ was composed in 1930 in Paris, and first performed by the composer in Glasgow the following year. It was the twelfth of his fourteen piano sonatas. Not only its title but also the expressive content of its four movements, played without a break, make it virtually a manifesto for Medtner’s art. Apart from sonatas, Medtner’s favourite genre was the Skazka (‘Tale’). It has been pointed out that the usual English translation of ‘Fairy tale’ does not do justice to the power and depth of many of these pieces, some of which almost approach Chopin’s Ballades in their expressive scope. The two Skazki of Op 20 recorded here were composed in 1909.
In a recent performance of Rachmaninov’s Piano Sonata No 2, a great Romantic showpiece, Osborne was described by the Washington Post as ‘a master of momentum and color, a wielder of power and a sure navigator through huge landscapes: his Rachmaninov was both coherent and daringly free’.

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - United (1967/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell
Title: United
Genre: Soul, R&B, Smooth Soul, Pop Soul, AM Pop
Label: © Motown Records, a Division of UMG Recordings, Inc.
Release Date: 1967/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 33:15
Recorded: 1967

United was originally released in 1967 on Motown's Tamla Records label. The album produced four Top 40 Billboard chart hits including 'Your Precious Love', 'If I Could Build My Whole World Around You', and 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough', and 'If This World Were Mine' (which was released as the b-side to 'If I Could Build My Whole World Around You').
Of the numerous ‘duet’ albums Marvin Gaye recorded (including two other sets with Tammi Terrell), 1967’s “United” was probably the most consistent and enjoyable of the group. Terrell was clearly the female partner with whom Gaye had the most chemistry and it showed throughout about two thirds of the album; the other third falling victim to Motown’s typically lame efforts to attract a MOR white audience. At least on record the decision to put the two together was almost magical. Terrell didn’t have the world’s greatest voice, but she knew how to use her talents and she was a perfect partner for Gaye adding a sassy element to his cool, controlled performances. Co-produced by Harvey Fuqua and Johnny Bristol, the two producers had the insight to recognize that Gaye and Terrell would be best suited by an upbeat, soul-oriented sound. As a result they managed to keep Berry Gordy’s affection for over-produced slop to a minimum. To their credit, Gaye and Terrell even managed to salvage some of the lesser material – ‘You Got What It Takes‘ – were actually listenable. Unfortunately ‘Somethin’ Stupid‘ (‘c’mon why would anyone even think about covering and Frank and Nancy Sinatra song?) and ‘Sad Wedding‘ were simply too lame for anyone to save.
