Official Release #53. The first live album compiled from various performances on Frank Zappa's 1988 world tour (his final outing), Broadway the Hard Way is composed mostly of new, vocal-oriented material. The tone throughout is highly political, with Zappa taking potshots at such targets as Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Pat Robertson and other televangelists, Jesse Jackson, C. Everett Koop, and so on.

Jacky Terrasson - Smile (2002) {Blue Note}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 245MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Fusion, Post-Bop

The stream of imaginative energy flows strong and true on Jacky Terrasson’s new recording, simply entitled Smile. The dazzling jazz pianist performs with panache and exuberance, adding his unique touch to a diverse mixture of contemporary and classic standards. The music remains true to Terrasson’s form, as it is somewhat of a return to the trio format of his early acclaimed recordings. His previous release A Paris paid homage to his childhood experiences in France and with more than a half dozen recordings on Blue Note; he continues to develop and grow into a unique pianist.

Bireli Lagrene - Inferno (1987)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 8 Tracks | 39:12 | 91,20 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Blue Note / Capitol

Fans of guitarist Bireli Lagrene's early work probably will not care for this often passionate CD. Lagrene, who had switched from swing to fusion a few years earlier (and from acoustic guitar to electric), mostly roars throughout seven of his originals (plus Django Reinhardt's "Incertitude"), jamming with tenor saxophonist Bill Evans, keyboardist Clifford Carter, electric bassist Victor Bailey, percussionist Café and one of four drummers. The music is well-played but not all that memorable; none of the original themes were destined to catch on.

Fela Kuti - Live In Detroit 1986 (2012) [3CD] {Knitting Factory Records}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 1.04 Gb | MP3 @320 -> 342 Mb
Full Artwork @ 300 dpi (jpg) -> 18 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 2012 Knitting Factory Records | KFR 1028
Jazz / Afro Beat / Afro Pop / Jazz Funk / World Fusion

In its own way, this is a kind of grail; a live recording by the great Fela Kuti captured live mere months after his release from prison in 1986. After serving two years on a trumped-up charge of "currency trafficking," he was reluctantly released by the Nigerian government in April due to considerable pressure by Amnesty International. This show took place at Detroit's historic Fox Theater in November. The recording is the first release of "new" Fela material in nearly 20 years. The three CDs clock in at a bit under two-and-a-half hours -- the show could have easily fit on two discs -- and an audience recording by Bob Tegan.

Allan Holdsworth - Metal Fatigue (1985) {Cream Records}
EAC 0.95b4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 259MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion

Criminally unknown and underappreciated, Allan Holdsworth is one of the greatest musicians ever to pick up the electric guitar. Here, on 1985's Metal Fatigue, everything finally comes together for him. For the majority of this record, Holdsworth is joined by bassist Jimmy Johnson and drummer Chad Wackerman, and these two musicians, virtuosos in their own right, complement Holdsworth beautifully (check out Johnson's wonderful part in "Home" and lovely solo on "Panic Station"). The leader is known for his extremely legato phrasing and rich harmonic vocabulary, both of which are on display in the solo and frantic fills of "Metal Fatigue."

Philip Catherine & Martin Wind - New Folks (2014) {ACT}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 278MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Fusion

Philip Catherine - the South German Newspaper in Munich just recently wrote that he “plays things that cannot be heard by any other guitarist in the world today”. His partner on the bass, Martin Wind, is one of only a few Germans who made it in New York. Both are aesthetes that love melodic jazz with Swing roots. Without any haste or superficial virtuosity, but instead with complete mutual trust they find the ideal tone, the right timbre for each note, lining up sound and space perfectly. A meeting of generations marked by harmony and respect.

OHM - Amino Acid Flashback (2005)
EAC Rip | FLAC: Tracks+Cue+Log | 324 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 107 Mb | Scans | Time: 43:24
Genre: Progressive Rock, Fusion | Label: Blacknote | Cat.№: 3024-2

The first release done on BlackNote Records, with Kofi Baker (son of the famed Ginger Baker from Cream) on the drum throne. This record was a combination of new and old, as the liner notes suggest. Much light and darkness in the lives of all those concerned, reflected in the colors of the music. “Tara”, and “Tattoo” were long part of the OHM set. “Spun” inspired by a movie, “Joog” a tongue-in-cheek title from some of our Armenian fans, “Williams'” by a friend, “Rooms of Telemetry” by a tragic loss in the family.

Santana - Welcome (1973) [Japan 1st Press, 1993]
EAC Rip | FLAC: Image+Cue+Log | 348 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 147 Mb | Scans | Time: 50:25
Genre: Rock, Latin Rock, Вlues Rock, Jazz Fusion | Label: Sony Music | Cat.№: SRCS 6319

"Welcome" is the fifth studio album by Santana, released in 1973. It followed the jazz-fusion formula that the preceding Caravanserai had inaugurated, but with an expanded and different lineup this time. Gregg Rolie had left the band along with Neal Schon to form Journey, and they were replaced by Tom Coster, Leon Thomas and John McLaughlin, who had collaborated with Carlos Santana on Love Devotion Surrender. Welcome also featured John Coltrane's widow, Alice, as a pianist on the album's opening track, "Going Home" and Flora Purim (the wife of Airto Moreira) on vocals. Because this album was far more experimental than their first four albums, Welcome did not feature any hit singles.

Harmssen-Voss-Duo - Mother Nature, Father Harmony
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 154 MB | Full Artwork: 28 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: inakustik "Limited Compact Disc Reference Edition" # inak 863 CD | Country/Year: Germany 1986
Genre: Jazz | Style: Contemporary Jazz, Fusion

"...Obwohl es kaum eine dramatische Steigerung, kaum einen lauten, rhythmisch exaltierten Ausbruch gibt und die Musik meist mit gebremster Leidenschaft am Ohr entlangfließt, schmeichelt sie doch auch der Aufmerksamkeit: lyrischversonnene, schön klingende Duette, in Wahrheit jedoch meist begleitete Solostücke für das Saxophon. Im Spiel erkennt man zwei gute Musiker: den Gitarristen und Synthesizer-Spieler Harmssen und den Saxophonisten Jochen Voss, der einen klaren, festen Ton bläst. ~Die Zeit"

Bireli Lagrene - Acoustic Moments (1990)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 10 Tracks | 44:00 | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Blue Note

Bireli Lagrene, a guitarist who first came up as a remarkable Django Reinhardt clone before getting interested in rock, switches back and forth throughout this CD. He plays some songs acoustically in a classical vein, swings a bit on a couple of standards and then finishes the set with a brief blowout on "Metal Earthquake." Most of the so-called acoustic pieces have electric keyboards and/or synthesizers provided by Koono (there is no actual bass on this set) and one gets the impression that at this point in his career Bireli Lagrene was unsure what direction to go in. The results are interesting but sometimes almost incoherent. (Scott Yanow, All Music Guide)
