Originally formed in 1962 in Jersey City, New Jersey, The Manhattans enjoyed some success in the R&B world from 1965- 1972 recording for the Carnival and DeLuxe labels. A move to Columbia Records in 1973 brought greater prominence for the then-quintet when the single “There’s No Me Without You” became a Top 3 R&B and Top 50 pop hit. In 1975, the group topped the US pop and R&B charts (also reaching the UK Top 10) with their now-classic “Kiss And Say Goodbye,” from their first gold album, The Manhattans. With the departure of original member Ricky Taylor, the quartet of Gerald Alston, Blue Lovett, Sonny Bivins and Wally Kelley returned to the recording studios in 1976 with renowned Philadelphia producer/arranger/musician and songwriter Bobby Martin to cut their fourth Columbia album, IT FEELS SO GOOD. The ten-track LP became The Manhattans’ second gold album, buoyed by the success of ‘I Kinda Miss You’ (US R&B #7, Pop #46), the title track (US R&B #6, Pop #66) and ‘We Never Danced To A Love Song,’ another Top 10 R&B hit.

The Hilliard Ensemble - Il Cor Tristo (2013) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: The Hilliard Ensemble
Title: Il Cor Tristo
Genre: Classical, Choral, Renaissance
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Player | ECM Reviews
Release Date: 2013
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:53:01
Recorded: November 2012, Propstei St. Gerold, Austria


One of the world’s finest vocal chamber groups, the Hilliard Ensemble has a formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. The programme featured here exemplifies its distinctive style and highly developed musicianship in both repertoires. At its heart is a work commissioned by the ensemble from British contemporary composer Roger Marsh: Il Cor Tristo, a setting of cantos 32 and 33 from Dante’s Inferno, which deftly blends Renaissance techniques with a modern idiom. Marsh’s composition frames settings of Petrarch by 16th century composers Bernardo Pisano (1490-1548) and Jacques Arcadelt (c 1507-1568). As so often with the Hilliard singers, the transitions between “old” and “new” are seamless, and the album unfolds like a larger composition.
Here one must also credit composer Marsh, who notes that his “primary concern has been to keep Dante’s words clear at all times, and thus you will find in this contemporary music many devices more usually encountered in music of much earlier times.”
Marsh’s Il Cor Tristo was premiered by the Hilliard Ensemble in Perugia, Italy in September 2008. The version here was recorded, along with the Pisano and Arcadelt pieces, in November 2012, at the St Gerold monastery in Austria, location for outstanding Hilliard recordings including the collaborations with Jan Garbarek (Officium, Mnemosyne, Officium Novum) the Bach project with Christoph Poppen (Morimur), Arvo Pärt’s Da Pacem Domine, as well as motets of Guillaume de Machaut, 16th century English music (Audivi Vocem) and more.
Il Cor Tristo is released as the Hilliards both celebrate their 40th anniversary and embark on their final year together: at the end of 2014 the group will disband. The Hilliards’ last year will be a creative summing-up. David Jones explains: “As well as all the music that we have discovered and enjoyed performing over the years, we want to embrace the important relationships and people that have contributed to some of the remarkable landmarks and turning points in our career”.

The Back Porch Majority - Thats the Way Its Gonna Be (1966/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: The Back Porch Majority
Title: Thats the Way Its Gonna Be
Genre: Folk, Pop Rock, Folk Revival, Folk Pop, AM Pop

The Back Porch Majority was one of several large folk music ensembles that were popular during the first half of the 1960's. Along with the Serendipity Singers, they were considered rivals and imitators of the New Christy Minstrels, but they had a closer relationship to the latter group than any of their rivals, as they were founded by the same man, (Randy Sparks). In 1963, Randy Sparks decided to give up performing with the New Christy Minstrels, the folk ensemble that he'd founded two years earlier. His exit, and the decision to move group-member Barry McGuire to center-stage as his replacement as "leader" of the Christys on stage, caused singer Dolan Ellis to quit the 10-man group. After briefly trying out Doug Brookins for the spot, Sparks latched onto Gene Clark, a member of a group called the Surf Riders, and put him into the Christys. As compensation for breaking up the Surf Riders, Sparks and his manager, Jack Daley, agreed to put the other two members of Clark's old group, Jimmy Glover and Mike Crumm, into a new group that eventually came to be called the Back Porch Majority.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6 'Pathetique' - Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Thomas Dausgaard (2012) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893)
Artist: Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Thomas Dausgaard
Title: Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6 'Pathétique'
Genre: Classical
Label: © BIS Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: eClassical
Duration: 62:21
Recorded: September 2011 at the Örebro Concert Hall, Sweden


These two works from either end of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s career are linked by their tragic endings – the Sixth Symphony with its concluding Adagio lamentoso descending into the deep and gloomy catacombs of a low string sound, and the ‘Fantasy Overture’ Romeo and Juliet closing with a funeral march. Both of them much-loved staples in the concert halls of the world, they appear here in ‘Opening Doors’ – the series conceived by Thomas Dausgaard and his Swedish Chamber Orchestra in order to provide the opportunity of hearing large-scale Romantic symphonic works in a new way, with the clarity that a chamber orchestra can offer. Begun in 2006, the Opening Doors project includes a full cycle of Schumann’s symphonies (‘the most perceptive Schumann cycle in over three decades’, International Record Review), Dvořák’s ‘New World Symphony’ (‘yet another orchestral gem’, klassik.com), and Symphony No. 2 by Bruckner (‘perfectly paced and balanced – and the small orchestra is all to the good in making Bruckner's stark originality clear’, BBC Music Magazine). These are now joined by Tchaikovsky’s last symphony – completed only a couple of months before the composer’s death in 1893 – a work which to many is the archetype of a true Romantic symphony.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 4 - Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)
Artist: Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan
Title: Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 4
Genre: Classical
Label: © Warner Classics
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:43:01
Recorded: 1960, Grunewaldkirche, Berlin


The Karajan Official Remastered Edition comprises 13 box sets containing official remasterings of the finest recordings the Austrian conductor made for EMI between 1946 and 1984, and which are now a jewel of the Warner Classics catalogue.
For many, Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) – hailed early in his career as ‘Das Wunder Karajan’ (The Karajan Miracle) and known in the early 1960s as ‘the music director of Europe’ – remains the ultimate embodiment of the maestro. The release of the Karajan Official Remastered Edition over the first half of 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the conductor’s death in July 1989 at the age of 81.
He was closely associated with EMI for the majority of his recording career (specifically from 1946 to 1960 and then again from 1969 to 1984). EMI’s legendary producer Walter Legge sought him out in Vienna just after World War II and the long relationship that ensued embraced recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic, the Philharmonia (the orchestra founded by Legge), the Berlin Philharmonic (of which Karajan became ‘conductor for life’ in 1955), the forces of La Scala, Milan, and the Orchestre de Paris.
The Karajan Official Remastered Edition will feature primarily symphonic and choral music. The entire edition will comprise recordings remastered from the original sources in 24-bit/96kHz at Abbey Road Studios, the world’s most renowned recording studio.

Talking Heads - Remain in Light (1980/2012) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Talking Heads
Title: Remain in Light
Genre: Rock, Alternative Rock, Experimental, New Wave, Post Punk
Label: © Sire Records Company
Release Date: 1980/2012
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 40:00
Recorded: July–August 1980

The musical transition that seemed to have just begun with Fear of Music came to fruition on Talking Heads' fourth album, Remain in Light. "I Zimbra" and "Life During Wartime" from the earlier album served as the blueprints for a disc on which the group explored African polyrhythms on a series of driving groove tracks, over which David Byrne chanted and sang his typically disconnected lyrics. Remain in Light had more words than any previous Heads record, but they counted for less than ever in the sweep of the music. The album's single, "Once in a Lifetime," flopped upon release, but over the years it became an audience favorite due to a striking video, its inclusion in the band's 1984 concert film Stop Making Sense, and its second single release (in the live version) because of its use in the 1986 movie Down and Out in Beverly Hills, when it became a minor chart entry. Byrne sounded typically uncomfortable in the verses ("And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife/And you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?"), which were undercut by the reassuring chorus ("Letting the days go by"). Even without a single, Remain in Light was a hit, indicating that Talking Heads were connecting with an audience ready to follow their musical evolution, and the album was so inventive and influential, it was no wonder. As it turned out, however, it marked the end of one aspect of the group's development and was their last new music for three years. --AllMusic Review by William Ruhlmann
