Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]
Music that is enjoyable enough to last a lifetime
I only have the original Star Wars double gatefold LP from the late 1970s (Universal Records) plus the 3 VHS special edition box of the movies. With access to the films via Netflix and Rhapsody, I have not been motivated to buy them yet again. I listened to all 3 original Star Wars sound tracks via Rhapsody (IV, V, & VI) over the course of a single day. I greatly love the original LPs, but I do ...

Exile on Main St. (Rarities Edition)
Universal Music, 2010
A New Album that Happens to be from 1972!
I was frustrated to hear that the Stones had reissued (yet again) "Exile..." and this time put out bonus tracks. I wanted the previously unreleased material, but I already had a remastered "Exile" (second time purchased since CDs replaced Vinyl and Cassettes) and I DID NOT want to rebuy it again. No problem, this Bonus Tracks Only version was just what I needed. The 10 additional tracks are a ...
Sounds True, Incorporated
This is a lovely book
This is a lovely book which instructs the reader in how to explore the lower, middle and upper realms of shamanic journeying. Sandra Ingerman, a very gifted Harner -trained shaman and shamanic teacher, is also a gifted writer. Her discussions are clear and concise, well illustrated with examples from her practice, and sensibly empowering readers to explore and learn to trust their own experiences ...
Aliens: The Deluxe Edition
Varese Sarabande, 2001
I already owned the non-Deluxe Edition of this movie score and was quite pleased with that. Being a big fan of the movie and soundtrack I was intrigued by the Deluxe Edition since it offered so much more. The liner notes on the non-Deluxe Edition are non-existent. The first think I noticed with this album was a great back story to the soundtrack is provided. I always appreciate when this ...
Star Wars Trilogy (Box Set)
AMAZING STAR WARS BOX SET
This Star Wars Trilogy box set is amazing, the detail and artwork inside is worth the money alone. All of the music is quite fantastic. I have the original chrome box set of the movies and this adds to the same 1997 release. Very good product, a must have for any Star Wars geek.
Singin' in the Rain (1952 Film Soundtrack) (Deluxe Edition)
Nacio Herb Brown
Rhino / Wea, 2002
I got this for my birthday and loved it. Its really great. I loved the songs in the movie so this was perfect. If you like the songs in the movie, but don't have time to watch the movie then this is the thing for you.
Live and Let Die [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]
One of the Best Looking Back and with a Little Help from Extra tracks
George Martin's inspiration for composing a score for LIVE AND LET DIE seems to have been SHAFT rather than earlier James Bond films. There is nothing wrong with this approach. However all the musical cues for James Bond, the hero of the piece, should never stray too far from his musical roots and that sound should remain consistent. This is similar to the mistake Michael Kamen made with his ...
Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland
Platinum Disc, 2009
Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland
very good movie for kids to watch, it lets the imagination go wild when you are watching this movie
Court Yard Hounds: Deluxe Edition with DVD & 2 Bonus Tracks

Brahms: The Four Symphonies
Sir Charles Mackerras
At Last -- Performances Worthy of the Music!
I've been on the hunt for wonderfully performed versions of these magnificent symphonies for years. My love for them was born decades ago listening to the incomparable Toscanini recrdings on LP (performances still happily available on CD and well worthwile despite the unavoidable loss of sonic quality compared to modern recordings). Mackerras's set is simply superb. I couldn't agree less with the ...
The Complete Recordings, 1902-1920 (Box Set)
Essential edition for opera lovers
This set gives you the opportunity to follow the entire recording career of one of the greatest singers in Operatic History. Enrico Caruso was the first superstar of the 20th century -- and this without the benefit of mass media. His person and his records were his greatest publicity. The set begins with Caruso's Italian made recordings. They show a great raw talent. The artistry is ...
Die Dreigroschenoper: Berlin 1930
Wonderful original recording, plenty extras.
In quick summary: - If you're at all familiar with the Dreigroschenoper and all its incarnations, be sure to buy this album. It's the closest you could get to an 'original'. - If you're completely new to the Threepenny story, I would recommend starting with the 1999 Nina Hagen concert version instead. It's got all the songs left out here, better recording quality, and a more modern approach ...
An American in Paris (1951 Film Soundtrack)
Rhino / Wea, 1996
Many agree that the talented George Gershwin is a fabulous pianist, and alongside Ira, he helped to create some of the most beloved music ever. After viewing the movie that was filled with song and dance, I was pleased to discover that the soundtrack was readily available. The plot of An American in Paris mainly focuses on the lives of three friends and their dreams in addition to the romance ...
Crime and Dissonance
Ipecac Recordings, 2005
challenging work from a master
Ennio Morricone is a true musical genius, most widely known for his work for Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns" but the breadth of his work is far reaching. Often incorporating twentieth century compositional techniques and challenging vocal arrangements. This collection deserves a full five stars, not the paltry and ungenerous three. Branch out into the unsettling with a true master.
Mozart: The Symphonies (Nos 1-41, plus 27 other symphonic works) /AAM * Schroder * Hogwood
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
The Academy of Ancient Music
This set is indispensable for anyone who seriously wants to have a complete Mozart collection. It contains every symphonic work written by Mozart, including second versions of certain late symphonies. The playing is "alive" and fresh, the sound is full, warm and clear. What you get is not Hogwood's "interpretation"...but music and just the music, this guy understands Mozart and just lets ...
Rave Til Dawn (Alternate)
Rave AKA Techno Music
I have this CD and it has alot of Killer Techno on it, It needs to be re-Released. This music was played in the Hey Day of Techno Rave Radio Station MARS-FM (KOCM Newport Beach, KQRS Santa Monica) 103.1 with the Swedish Egil! I miss that station and the Music!
Antonio de Almeida
At long last available!
The crazy SONY people kept this important recording in their archives for over 2 decades. I just don't know what's wrong with them, (they still are hidding Donizetti's Gemma di Vergy with Caballe recorded live in NY in 1976. Surely one of Caballe's best recordings). As for Mignon it's a lucky charm of an opera. This recording is excellent, with Horne in spectacular voice as the heroine, but it ...
A Star Is Born (Expanded 1954 Film Soundtrack)
a "Star" shines like never before...
This reissued remaster of A STAR IS BORN is a must-own for fans of the movie, and in particular those who were somewhat dissatified by the previous CD edition (CK 44389). That edition was great for offering us most of the main numbers in stereo/mono mix but was marred by poor analogue distortion and other remastering problems (though this was the best that could have been done at the time). ...
Exile on Main St. (3-CD Collector's Edition)
Universal Music, 2010
