Silva Screen Records present earlier composers who were masters of music on Hitchcock films, and later films with Bernard Herrmann on the second CD. The "CONCERTO FOR ORCHESTRA" is Miklos Rozsa's haunting theme which lasts over nine minutes is something from heaven. "STRANGERS ON THE TRAIN" the Dimitri Tiomkin contribution is also an outstanding track which can move the unmoveable with the heart-racing pounding sounds that the two composers generate. Both composers Rozsa and Tiomkin have a list of accomplishments a mile long, but to hear their music on a Hitchcock film is pure geneious in film making and scoring.

Shout! Factory's Essential Emerson, Lake & Palmer retrospective features 28 remastered tracks from the seminal progressive rock trio's '70s heydays. The collection, which was overseen by the band itself, features all of the usual suspects like "Lucky Man," "Still…You Turn Me On" and "Karn Evil 9: 1st Impression, Part 2," as well as deeper cuts such as "Bitches Crystal" and "Medley: Jeremy Bender/The Sheriff," the latter of which is presented live…

Blues Masters - The Essential Blues Collection: Vol.1 - Vol.15 (1992-1993)
Blues | FLAC (tracks)+Cue+Log | 3,97 Gb + 5% Recovery | Scans 371 Mb
Label: Rhino | Release Year: 1992-1993

The Blues Masters series, much to Rhino`s credit, adopts an expansive definition of blues, allowing the likes of Count Basie, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Muddy Waters and even Louis Prima admission. There is none of the purist`s quibbling over strict 12-bar form or the relative significance of prewar and postwar styles.
What Rhino delivers instead is the blues in all its myriad guises. This music is old and new, black and white, acoustic and electric, folksy and jazzy, performed by women and men, and yet it is all still blues at its core.
Petula Clark - Songs Of My Life: The Essential (2005) 3CD Set [Re-Up]

Genre: AM Pop, British Invasion, Early Pop Rock | Label: Sanctuary | # SMETD231 | Time: 03:49:59

There are almost more Petula Clark collections than there were actual songs (that's saying something), and Sanctuary's three-disc Songs of My Life: The Essential Petula Clark is one of the better ones. Split into three themes, "Swinging Times," "Mellow Moods," and "Beautiful Sounds," Songs of My Life relies heavily on the English pop sensation's peak '60s and '70s output. All of the key radio hits are here ("Downtown," "I Know a Place," "My Love," "This Is My Song"), as well as countless ballads, uptempo pop gems, and choice covers. Fans looking for a decent career overview (sadly, none of Clark's vast arsenal of French hits are here) may find the 78 tracks that populate Songs of My Life a bit overwhelming, but they're well worth spending some quality time alone with.

2016 three CD collection. 10cc's witty and satiric brand of tongue-in-cheek art pop sustained their reputation for being poignant songwriters for the entirety of their existence. They have notched up over 15 million album sales in the UK and frontman Graham Gouldman has been the recipient of three Ivor Novello Awards for achievements in songwriting. This collection features two #1 hits and a selection of prime cuts taken from across a very strong back catalog and features rare live versions of some of the band's most well-known tracks.

Almost all the heavy-hitters are hauled out for The Essential Aerosmith, from "Mama Kin" to "Jaded," and including both versions of "Walk This Way." Some of the songs are presented in a remixed form – "Draw the Line," "Pink," "Just Push Play" – but all of the new mixes are good, possibly even improvements, and the newer song, "Girls of Summer," is strong (its companion, "Lay It Down," isn't as noteworthy). So, all the parts are in place – why doesn't it feel definitive, then? After all, there are no big songs or hits missing (apart from the cover of "Come Together," which isn't much of a loss), just fan favorites and album tracks like "Lick and a Promise," and "Chip Away the Stone". The reason it doesn't feel definitive is that the classic Columbia recordings are wrapped up by track ten…
