Sketches of Spain is an album by Miles Davis, recorded between November 1959 and March 1960 at the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City. An extended version of the second movement of Joaquin Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is included, as well as a song called "Will o' the Wisp", from the ballet El amor brujo by Manuel de Falla. Sketches of Spain is regarded as an exemplary recording of Third Stream, a musical fusion of jazz, European classical, and styles of world music.

Goodbye to the Age of Steam is Big Big Train's first album, originally released in 1994. The album has been unavailable for many years and is reissued on 18th April 2011. To ensure the best possible audio quality, "Goodbye…" has been re-mixed by Rob Aubrey from the original master-tapes. The reissue includes new artwork and a 12-page booklet with lyrics and sleeve-notes. The reissue also features three bonus tracks; an extended version of 'Losing Your Way', a previously unreleased track called 'Far Distant Thing' (taken from a 1993 radio session), and 'Expecting Dragons', a recording by the current BBT line-up which re-works some of the musical themes from Goodbye to the Age of Steam.
Testament continues to grow and change and evolve 25 years after its formation, and where most bands their age crank out lowest-common denominator material just to get themselves to the next tour, Testmanet remains entirely vital. 'Dark Roots of Earth' is easily one of the band's finest works, proving what a unique and special chemistry exists between the Billy, Peterson, Skolnick and Christian lineup. This deluxe version adds a DVD featuring Scorpions, Queen and Iron Maiden covers, an extended version of "Throne of Thorns," "making of" and interview footage, and four live performances.

The Allman Brothers Band's fifth live release in 25 years, cut during 1994 in Raleigh, NC, and at the Garden State Arts Center in New Jersey, is a high-water mark in their Epic Records catalog. If anything, they're even better here than they were on the earlier Evening with the Allman Brothers Band, the old material getting fresh new approaches – the band was on for both nights, and presented sets, including an acoustic version of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Jessica" (which won a Grammy Award), that soared and flowed, especially Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes' guitars. What's more, the clarity of the recording and the volume at which it was recorded make this a most rewarding 70 minutes of live music on a purely technical level – you can practically hear the action on the guitars during the acoustic set. It won't replace Live at Fillmore East or the live portions of Eat a Peach, but it deserves a place on the shelf not very far from them.
