I want…REMASTERS


One of the few truly bigger-than-life rock bands, Led Zeppelin continues to cast a giant shadow over contemporary rock two decades after the group’s breakup. The slickly packaged set offers a solid introduction to the band’s work, with two discs of remastered, sonically upgraded album tracks, plus a third disc of interviews with surviving bandmembers Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones. Hearing all these Zep classics–“Stairway to Heaven,” “Whole Lotta Love,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Rock and Roll,” “Kashmir,” “Immigrant Song,” “Black Dog,” “Good Times Bad Times,” “Heartbreaker,” “Houses of the Holy,” and “The Song Remains the Same”–assembled in one package is an impressive testament to the group’s pervasive influence.

Even My Sure Things Fall Through

Full title – Even My Sure Things Fall Through – Always a work in progress and taking little or no time off, Joey Burns and John Convertino have assembled a variety of recordings taken from the European B-sides (3 Slang CD singles), as well … Full Descriptionas a Two Loneswordsman remix of Sonic Wind and an American Music Club cover, Chanel No. 5. In addition to the audio content, the band’s 3 music videos, shot and directed by John Pirozzi, will be included as CD-Rom files for your screening pleasure. CD rom tracks are Crystal Frontier (widescreen version), Ballad of Cable Hogue and Black Light. 11 tracks. 2001 release.
This is a strange kind of mini-album. The songs are a marvel of sophistication. It hardly sounds like the old Calexico. Their sound is approaching the smooth, polished, crystalline transparency of acoustic fusion ensembles. Trumpet and vibes give the remix of Sonic Wind a jazz feeling that bossanova steps reinforce. Hard Hat is an ambiente/concrete remix of Hot Rail with samples of gongs, guitars and radio voices. Crystal Frontier is a high-caliber tex-mex novelty, replete with festive horns fanfare, feverish string section, and even dub-style reverbs.
Additional personnel includes: Jacob Valenzuela (trumpet).
Calexico includes: Joey Burns, John Convertino.
Engineers: Naim Amor, Ben McQuillen, Joey Burns.

Black Eyes
How Deep Is the Ocean?

Chet Baker recorded many albums in Europe during his final decade. This hard-to-find LP matches his trumpet with pianist Phil Markowitz, bassist Jean-Francois Jenny Clark and drummer Jeff Brillinger for a date in Paris. Chet sings on “Oh You Crazy Moon” and stretches out on trumpet during a fresh repertoire that includes “Broken Wing,” Wayne Shorter’s “Black Eyes,”… More “How Deep Is the Ocean?” and Baker’s own “Blue Gilles.” Even with his chaotic lifestyle, most of Chet Baker’s recordings are worth acquiring and Broken Wing is better than average.

Good listening…
