Sondheim On Sondheim
P.S. CLASSICS, 2010
Hailed by the Associated Press as a: revelatory revue full of wonderful moments, and by USA Today as a: funny, affectionate and revealing tribute to musical theater's greatest living composer and lyricist, SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words...and music. An all-star cast headed by Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams and Tom Wopat takes on new arrangements of over two-dozen Sondheim tunes, ranging from ...
Roots: My Life, My Song (2 CD)
SONY CLASSICS, 2010
Back in the spotlight. Finally. And her roots are showing.
Jessye Norman is one of the world's most famous sopranos. So we have one question: Why'd we have to wait so long (10 years!) for this 2-disc solo album, her most personal project to date? This musical journey reflects her exciting life--from her years as a poor music student to the most internationally successful and highly acclaimed female classical artist since Callas. Recorded live at Berlin's ...
The Live Anthology (4 CD)
Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers
Reprise Records, 2009
Best box set I own.
First off you must know that I am a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers fanatic. That said, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The music is mostly live versions of the hits but there are a lot of covers and extended versions that you probably haven't heard before. As Tom says in the included book these are tracks that he and the band have decided were the best live versions that they have ...
Chronicle, Vol. 1: The 20 Greatest Hits
Creedence Clearwater Revival
CCR music CD
The very best in classic rock. There is no music produced today that will come close to the inspirating music produced in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. The written word set to music was superb during this era.
Baby Einstein: Lullaby Classics
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Buena Vista, 2004
Quality music and production, and works as a lullaby for us
Great music -- our twins and we love it. I can see how it may not work as a lullaby for some though, since some of the music is pretty animated. Nevertheless we include the whole album on our set list for lullaby music and it works great -- its a nice addition to our other lullaby music.
Back in Black
BEST ALBUM EVER
Listen this is one of the GREATEST ALBUMS EVER and if you are a hard rock/heavy metal fan like me YOU NEED THIS! All the songs are great and each one just is an awesome rock expierience. My favorites are "Back In Black", "Hells Bells", "You Shook Me All Night Long", "Shoot To Thrill", and basically every single song! The guitars are great, the bass is great, the drums are great, the vocals are ...
A Postcard From California
Jardine Tours, 2010
Great Music to Imagine a Trip to CA
Listening to this album is a true blessing. Al has the singing voice today that all The BB's had in the 1960's. His album shows us Al's brilliance and his integrity. His song moving to CA w/ his parents in "A Postcard" is hopeful for the American dream. The idea how CA was looked @ from sailors in the days of Spain and Mexico in the song "Looking Down the Coast" is amazing, like it was centuries ...
The Wizard of Oz
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), 1999
I enjoyed this movie immensely. You think you've seen it all before. That's true, but it takes on a new meaning each time you watch it as you evolve!
Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook
New Artist to include in my collection
Came across this CD and artist during an email from Amazon based on my previous purchases. Love Bettye's voice and will add more of her work to my collection. This lady has been performing for many years and I'm amazed I hadn't bought her work earlier.
Blue's Clues - Classic Clues
Nickelodeon Network, 2004
My son loves this video!
My son is 19 months old had has been fascinated with Blues Clues for the last couple months and he just loves this video! Now we can delete some of the ones that we have recorded on our dvr.
Very Best Of
Memories flood back with this CD.
This is without a doubt the best greatest hits collection of the Doobie Brothers. It includes the Patrick Simmons and Michael McDonald eras. Both were high quality eras, and the sound is tremendous. Memories just flooded back from childhood listening to these hits. Any dance I went to in the '70's had to include "Long Train Running", and it sounds great here. If you are a fan of the Doobie ...
Finian's Rainbow: New Broadway Cast Recording/CD
P.S. CLASSICS, 2010
A terrific Rainbow performance
First-rate performances, beautiful singing, full orchestrations, complete score. This is the perfect revival and a terrific complement to the original cast album. Kate Baldwin's Sharon is beautifully sung and truly captivating. This FINIAN'S RAINBOW warrants as many if not more repeated plays as the Columbia original cast. Not one disappointing note. I love it.
Life Begins at 8:40
P.S. CLASSICS, 2010
"Life Begins ..." All Over Again -- And Aren't We Lucky!
Just when you think, as a Broadway fan, as a song fan, as a talent fan, that maybe there's nothing more to be mined from the past (and the present), you get a gift -- beautifully wrapped, lovingly assembled -- of a show just heard about, one with a tantalizing title, one that always seemed out of reach. Well, PS Classics has just released "Life Begins at 8:40," containing the score of the 1937 ...
A Hard Day's Night
Miramax Entertainment, 2002
A must for any Beatles fan!
What can I say that hasn't already been said about "A Hard Day's Night"? I bought this because it is one of my favorite movies, and I wanted to share it with my 9 yr old daughter so she could see a glimpse of what Beatlemania was like back in the day. The extras are great - very informative. Highly recommended!
Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994
Sting: Fields of Gold
Throughout all the different phases of Sting's career (with the Police and solo), I have to say this complilation is my favorite...something I have listened to over and over and never get tired of.
Greatest Hits Remixed (CD + DVD)
TML Entertainment, 2010
Triumph's Greatist Hits Remix is a must for Triumph Fans! The songs are not re-recorded but remixed. Very interesting to hear some of the low end Bass, Guitars and Drums that don't stand out on the originals or the remastered CD's. The songs all still keep their essence but have a bit of a twist...nothing new was added, just brought out. I will always prefer the originals/remastered, but these ...
Frank Sinatra is one of the greatest singers and actors of our age. Ol' Blue eyes, althought not with us now, will be remembered for his unique voice and style. Buy this CD you will enjoy it!!
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Probably his best era
In my opinion this is probably the best era for Elton John as well as many other musicians during that time. Not that I'm casting any doubt on the fine quality of his music in succeeding years, but this style of music with complex melodic arrangements and accompanying guitars to back his piano stylings heralds a time when music was an odyssey into the imagination.
Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific (The New Broadway Cast)
Oscar Hammerstein II
SONY CLASSICS, 2008
Great souvenir of an unforgettable production.
I thought that I knew this show but I underestimated its impact at the Vivien Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center. There is a real live grand 40+ piece orchestra in the pit that makes the overture take your breadth away and from there it only gets better. The principles are superb and they deserve every award this show has won. Thanks to CD technology, you get a recording of just about all the ...
