·"U2.18 Singles" - U2

U2 are a rock band from Dublin, Ireland. The group consists of Bono (vocals and rhythm guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion). The band formed at secondary school in 1976 when the members were teenagers with limited musical proficiency. Within four years, they signed to Island Records and released their debut album. By the mid-1980s, they had become a top international act. They were more successful as a live act than they were at selling records, until their 1987 album The Joshua Tree, which, according to Rolling Stone, elevated the band's stature "from heroes to superstars". Their 1991 album Achtung Baby! and the accompanying "Zoo TV Tour" were a musical and thematic reinvention for the band. Reacting to their own sense of musical stagnation and a late-1980s critical backlash, U2 incorporated dance music and alternative rock into their sound and performances, replacing their earnest image with a more ironic tone. Similar experimentation continued for the remainder of the 1990s. Since 2000, U2 have pursued a more conventional sound, while maintaining influences from their previous musical explorations. U2 have released 12 studio albums and are among the most critically and commercially successful groups in popular music. They have won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other band, and they have sold more than 145 million records. In 2005, the band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Rolling Stone magazine listed U2 at #22 in its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Throughout their career, as a band and as individuals, they have campaigned for human rights and philanthropic causes, including Amnesty International, the ONE Campaign, Product Red, and Bono's DATA campaign.

·"The Best of The Beach Boys" - The Beach Boys

The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in 1961, who gained popularity for their close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of cars, surfing, and romance. Brian Wilson's growing creative ambitions later transformed them into a more artistically innovative group that earned critical praise and influenced many later musicians. The group was initially composed of singer-musician-composer Brian Wilson, his brothers, Carl and Dennis, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. This core quintet was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 1988. The Beach Boys have often been called "America's Band", and Allmusic.com has stated that "the band's unerring ability... made them America's first, best rock band." The group has had thirty-six U.S. Top 40 hits (the most of any U.S. rock band) and fifty-six Hot 100 hits, including four number one singles. Rolling Stone magazine listed The Beach Boys as number 12 in the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. According to Billboard, in terms of singles and album sales, The Beach Boys are the No. 1-selling American band of all time.

·"Boogie Woogie Christmas" - The Brian Setzer Orchestra

This Christmas album has such a big sound that it makes other Christmas albums pale in comparison. Influenced by Johnny Mercer, Les Brown, Louis Prima, Bobby Darin and Duane Eddy, Brian Setzer is a retro genius. Standout numbers include a swinging "Nutcracker Suite", "Cactus Christmas" (think Cow-Cow Boogie), and an unexpectedly touching "O Holy Night". This album epitomizes Christmas cool. Highly, highly recommended for a snazzy, jazzy retro Christmas! Happy Christmas everybody!!!!

·"Pequeños, Medianos y Grandes Éxitos" - Luz Casal

Luz Casal (born November 11, 1958 at Boimorto, is a Spanish pop singer. She grew up in neighbouring Asturias, took singing, piano and ballet classes, and moved to Madrid to pursue a career as a musician. She became famous in the early 1980s, and remained an important figure in Spanish pop music all through said decade and beyond, with her sound gradually maturing towards soft adult pop. She recorded a cover version of Étienne Daho's French language song "Duel au Soleil" in Spanish called "Un nuevo día brillará", which became a hit song. In 1992 she enjoyed great success with her appearance in the soundtrack of Pedro Almodóvar's acclaimed film Tacones Lejanos singing Agustín Lara's theme "Piensa en mí". In January 2007, Luz Casal was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent an operation at the Ruber Clinic in Madrid.[citation needed], seven months later, she revealed to the Spanish media that she had overcome her disease. Her first name, Luz, means “light” in Spanish.

·"At the BBC - Sessions" - Queen

Queen recorded a total of 25 different tracks at 2 different BBC studios in 1973, 1974 and 1977. 'Keep Yourself Alive', 'Liar', 'Modern Times Rock And Roll', and 'Son And Daughter' were the only numbers recorded twice in two different sessions. This is a very nice bootleg featuring all the songs recorded by Queen at the BBC which weren’t included on the oficially released “Queen at the Beeb” album. All these Beeb versions sound a bit different to the oficial studio versions. Recommended.

·"Cliff" - Cliff Richard & the Shadows

Britain's answer to Elvis Presley, Richard (born Harry Webb) dominated the pre-Beatles British pop scene in the late '50s and early '60s. An accomplished singer with a genuine feel for the music, Richard's artistic legacy is nonetheless meager, as he was quickly steered toward a middle-of-the-road pop direction. Several of his late-'50s recordings were genuinely exciting Presley-esque rockers, especially his first hit, "Move It" (1958) and gave British teenagers their first taste of genuine homegrown rock & roll talent. Backed by the Shadows, clean-cut instrumental virtuosos who became legends of their own, Richard embarked on a truly awesome string of hit singles in Britain, scoring no less than 43 Top 20 hits between 1958 and 1969. One of these, although it was by no means one of the more successful, was an actual Mick Jagger/Keith Richards composition (the ballad "Blue Turns to Grey"). In his homeland, Richard's popularity was diminished only slightly by the rise of the Beatles, but in his prime, he had a much rougher time in the U.S., hitting the Top 40 only three times (with "Living Doll" in 1959, "It's All in the Game" in 1963, and "Devil Woman" in 1976). Richard belatedly cracked the U.S. Top Ten in 1976 with "Devil Woman," and racked up a few other hits ("We Don't Talk Anymore," "Dreaming," "A Little in Love") in a mainstream pop/rock style. He remains an institution in Britain, where he is one of the nation's most popular all-around entertainers of all time. Here's his first LP recorde live in front of an audience at Abbey Road studios.

·"Aftermath" (UK version) – The Rolling Stones

First released on 15 April 1966, Aftermath was the fourth UK and sixth US studio album by The Rolling Stones. The album proved to be a major artistic breakthrough for The Rolling Stones, being the first full-length release by the band to consist exclusively of Mick Jagger/Keith Richards compositions. Aftermath was also the first Rolling Stones album to be recorded entirely in the United States, at the legendary RCA Studios in Hollywood, California at 6363 Sunset Boulevard, and the first album the band released in stereo. The original UK version of Aftermath was issued in April 1966 as a fourteen-track LP, and this is generally considered to be the definitive version. Issued between the non-LP single releases of "19th Nervous Breakdown" and "Paint It Black", Aftermath was a major hit in the UK, spending eight weeks at #1 on the UK album chart. The US version, released in June, featured different cover art and an alternate (and shorter) running order that eliminated "Out of Time", "Take It Or Leave It", "What To Do", and "Mother's Little Helper". All four tracks were later issued in the US on other compilations, and "Mother's Little Helper" was also issued as a single, in 1966, peaking at #8 on the Billboard charts. In their place, the album substituted their current # 1 hit "Paint It Black". Although it compromised producer Andrew Loog Oldham's and The Rolling Stones' intentions for the album, the revamped Aftermath still reached #2 in the US, eventually going platinum. Here’s the original (and currently out of print) UK version, plus singles. Enjoy.

·"Caliente" - Vox Dei

Vox Dei (Latin: God's Voice) is an Argentine rock band. Its most prolific years were the 1970s, having recorded 10 albums. The band's original members were Juan Carlos Godoy (guitar and vocals), Ricardo Soulé (guitar and vocals), Rubén Basoalto (drums) and Willy Quiroga (bass and vocals). In 1968 they recorded a version of Percy Sledge's "When a man loves a woman", and the record company Mandioca organized an audition for them in the Payró theatre. The members of Manal and Almendra were also present, and a few hours later they played together. In 1970 they recorded for Mandioca their first album Caliente.

·"Careless Love" - Madeleine Peyroux

As a teenager, Madeleine Peyroux moved with her mother from New York to Paris and fell in love with music. She joined a street-performing band and sang in bars, before releasing a debut album at the age of 22, Dreamland (1996). It was hugely successful but Peyroux was not one for seeking the spotlight: after a brief spell touring jazz festivals, she sought to maintain a private life in France, continuing to busk and perform in small bars and cafés. In 2003 she recorded a seven-song EP, Got You On My Mind, with boyfriend and multi-instrumentalist William Galison, which he released as a full album the following year with four additional tracks. Careless Love (2004), Peyroux's second solo studio album, sold over a million copies worldwide.

·"The Who Remembers The High Numbers" - The Who

The Who first began in 1963. In their early days the band was known as The Detours. Like many of their British peers, the group was heavily influenced by American blues and country music, initially playing mostly rhythm and blues. The Detours became The Who in late 1964 and, also with the arrival of Keith Moon that year, their line-up was complete. However, for a short period during earl-mid 1964, and under the management of Peter Meaden, they changed their name to The High Numbers. This is a bootleg CD, with studio and live material from that period. Tracks 1-5 are their first studio efforts including their first single as The High Numbers, they released "Zoot Suit/I'm The Face", a record designed to appeal to their mostly Mod fans. When it failed to chart, the band fired Meaden and quickly reverted to The Who. They had also changed from The High Numbers to The Who because when they would have concerts, old ladies would come thinking that they could play bingo (and it's true! lol). Tracks 6-16 are live recorded at the Railway Hotel with decent sound considering the era. The tracks don't flow smoothly and some cut in and out abruptly. Some sound like there is an audience while others don't. Tracks 17-23 are mono studio tracks. These are all instrumental, actually recorded in Abbey Road Studios during that summer.

·"One Hour Mama" - Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers

Lavay Smith is beautiful. A gifted singer and all around classy lady! When she sings to you with that sexy voice, she makes your heart stop. Chris Siebert is the most awesome music arranger of our time. This band combines Vocal, Piano, Rhythm, a variety of brass, bass and guitar. And it's FUN music, in the spirit of Bessie Smith, Ida Cox, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Ma Rainey, etc. No other "retro" singer in the world today is as authenticly 1940's sounding as Lavay, as a matter a fact her sound goes back to the 20's with Bessie Smith, all the way to the 50's Big Maybelle. Lavay has her own style not sounding like any one singer from the past. But rather sounding like a singer from the past, without copying anyone. Her band is tight and gives exellent solos jazzwise, without compromising the dancability of these tunes. This record is the perfect proof that something good came of the late 90's Swing revival! One last thing: This may be the first CD you ever wear out from over use! Thank you Skillet Lickers!

·"Out of Our Heads” (UK version) – The Rolling Stones

Here is the third the Stones’ UK LP, released on 24 September, 1965. It was initially issued in July 1965 in America, and it was a mish-mash of studio recordings over a six month period. With the benefit of new songs being recorded that September plus a different album cover, the British version of Out of Our Heads dropped the live track (I’m Alright) and recent hit singles (singles were rarely featured on albums in the UK in those times), and added exclusive songs that would surface later in 1965 in the US on December's Children (And Everybody's) in addition to songs that hadn't been released in the UK thus far. Issued later that September, Out of Our Heads reached #2 in the UK charts behind The Beatles' Help!. It would also be The Rolling Stones' last UK album to predominantly feature R&B covers, with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards becoming far more prolific writers before 1965 was out. Again singles and the recorded-live EP Got Live if You Want It are included.

·"Cumbias!" - Los Wawancó

In 1955, the Argentine universities receive hundreds of students who come from the whole Latin America. A group of newcomers has many desires of amusingthemselves but not too much desire of studying medicine. They start to meet for playing music very often until one day they get a gig: the dance restaurant Tom and Jerry, in Vicente Lopez, for invitation of the businessman Francisco Trimboli. Equipped with flowery given shirts, the first members of the group were Rafael Aedo, Enrique Salazar and Hernán Rojas (from Colombia), Carlos Cabrera and Pedro Rojas (from Peru), Sergio Solar (from Chile) and Mario Castellón (from Costa Rica). The boys do a mixtureof the rhythms from their respective countries: cumbia, merengue, guaracha. They're considered even today as the most important cumbia group in Latinoamérica.

·"One Rockin' Night" - The Brian Setzer Orchestra

Before he jumped, jived, and wailed to the top of the pop charts, and long before radio, video, or press had noticed what was going on, a Brian Setzer Orchestra performance was captured live for the first time at the Montreal Jazz Festival on June 30, 1995. This show represented a turning point in the band's evolution from '40s style big band swing to the powerful balls-to-the-wall rock 'n' roll outfit that sold millions, earned 3 Grammys, and is still going strong. Experience that One Rockin' Night the Orchestra charted its new musical course and never looked back.

·"Spinettalandia y Sus Amigos (La Búsqueda de la Estrella)" - Luis Alberto Spinetta

Spinettalandia y Sus Amigos (Spinettaland & His Friends) it's Luis Alberto Spinetta's first solo album, released in 1971 after leaving Almendra and before forming Pescado Rabioso, his second group. An LP 100% "hippie", as for the recording regarding the sound and general conception, and simultaneously Luis' break up with RCA record company. After his group Almendra disbanded, - and after his short experience living in France as a hippy- Spinetta passed through this transition period, something which he denotes on this album assuming the dualities and risks that were clearly implied. The record features hard rock numbers, as "Castillo de Piedra" composed by Pappo and announcing what Pescado Rabioso will be, but at the same time intimate and surprising compositions as " La Búsqueda de la Estrella." Made with the collaboration of several friends actually present at the studio, this is a transitory but fundamental recording for the bases of the skills and style Spinetta would show as an artist in the future. The LP when it was first released was titled Almendra, something which made the artist take the record company to court. Then in 1978, a reissue of the LP was titled La Búsqueda de la Estrella. Finally in 1995 under the Sony Music label, its first issue on CD, the disc was titled as Spinetta had originally wanted back in 1971: Spinettalandia y Sus Amigos, including also the original cover also desigend by Spinetta.

·"The Rolling Stones Nº 2” (UK LP) – The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones No. 2 is the second UK album by The Rolling Stones released in January 15, 1965, following the massive success of 1964's debut The Rolling Stones. Not surprisingly, The Rolling Stones No. 2 followed its predecessor's tendency to largely feature R&B covers. However, it does contain three compositions from the still-developing Jagger/Richards (Richard by then) songwriting team. Using the cover shot for 12 X 5, the second US released album in October 1964, The Rolling Stones No. 2's tracklisting would largely be emulated on the upcoming US release of The Rolling Stones, Now!. While Eric Easton was co-credited as producer alongside Andrew Loog Oldham on The Rolling Stones' debut album, Oldham takes full production duties for The Rolling Stones No. 2, which was recorded sporadically in the UK and US during 1964. A huge hit in the United Kingdom upon release, The Rolling Stones No. 2 spent 10 weeks at #1 in early 1965, becoming one of the year's biggest sellers in the United Kingdom. Again is accompanied by contemporary singles plus the wonderful EP Five by Five.

A Day at the Races is the fifth album by British rock group Queen, released in December 1976. A Day at the Races was the Queen's first completely self-produced album, and the first not to feature producer Roy Thomas Baker. Recorded at Sarm East, The Manor and Wessex Studios in England, A Day at the Races was engineered by Mike Stone. The title of the album followed suit with its predecessor A Night at the Opera in taking its name from a film by the Marx Brothers. A Day at the Races peaked at number one in the UK, Japan and the Netherlands. It reached number five on the US Billboard 200 and was Queen's fifth album to ship gold (500,000 units shipped) in the US. It subsequently reached platinum status (one million shipped) in the US.

·"The Sun Records Years" - Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash (February 26, 1932–September 12, 2003), born J. R. Cash, was an American singer-songwriter and one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.[2] Primarily a country music artist, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll (especially early in his career), as well as blues, folk, and gospel. Cash was known for his deep, distinctive bass-baritone voice, the "chicka-boom" freight train sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanor, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black". He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash". Much of Cash's music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation and redemption. His signature songs include "I Walk the Line", "Folsom Prison Blues", "Ring of Fire", "Get Rhythm" and "Man in Black". He also recorded humorous songs, such as "One Piece at a Time" and "A Boy Named Sue", a duet with June Carter called "Jackson", as well as railroad songs such as "Hey Porter" and "Rock Island Line."

·"The Very Best of Édith Piaf" - Édith Piaf

Édith Piaf, born Édith Giovanna Gassion (19 December 1915 - 10 October 1963), was a French singer and cultural icon who "is almost universally regarded as France's greatest popular singer." Her singing reflected her life, with her specialty being ballads. Among her songs are "La vie en rose" (1946), "Hymne à l'amour" (1949), "Milord" (1959), "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960), "l'Accordéoniste" (1941), "Padam...Padam", and "La Foule". Despite numerous biographies, much of Piaf's life is shrouded in mystery. She was born Edith Giovanna Gassion in Belleville, Paris, a high-immigration district. Legend has it that she was born on the pavement of Rue de Belleville 72, but her birth certificate cites the Hôpital Tenon, the hospital for the 20th arrondissement of which Belleville is part. She was named Édith after the World War I British nurse Edith Cavell, who was executed for helping French soldiers escape from German captivity. Piaf —a Francilien colloquialism for "sparrow"— was a nickname she would receive 20 years later. In 1935 Piaf was discovered in the Pigalle area of Paris by nightclub owner Louis Leplée, whose club Le Gerny off the Champs-Élysées was frequented by the upper and lower classes alike. He persuaded her to sing despite her extreme nervousness, which, combined with her height of only 1.42m (4' 8"), inspired him to give her the nickname that would stay with her for the rest of her life and serve as her stage name, La Môme Piaf (Parigot translatable as "The Waif Sparrow", "The Little Sparrow", or "Kid Sparrow"). Leplée taught her the basics of stage presence and told her to wear a black dress, later to become her trademark apparel. Leplée ran an intense publicity campaign leading up to her opening night, attracting the presence of many celebrities, including actor Maurice Chevalier. Her nightclub gigs led to her first two records produced that same year, with one of them penned by Marguerite Monnot, a collaborator throughout Piaf's life. On 6 April 1936, Leplée was murdered and Piaf was questioned and accused as an accessory, but was acquitted. Leplée had been killed by mobsters with previous ties to Piaf. A barrage of negative media attention now threatened her career. To rehabilitate her image, she recruited Raymond Asso, with whom she would become romantically involved. He changed her stage name to "Édith Piaf", barred undesirable acquaintances from seeing her, and commissioned Monnot to write songs that reflected or alluded to Piaf's previous life on the streets. In 1940, Édith co-starred in Jean Cocteau's successful one-act play Le Bel Indifférent. She began forming friendships with prominent people, including Chevalier and poet Jacques Borgeat. She wrote the lyrics of many of her songs and collaborated with composers on the tunes. In 1944, she discovered Yves Montand in Paris, made him part of her act, and became his mentor and lover. Within a year, he became one of the most famous singers in France, and she broke off their relationship when he had become almost as popular as she was. During this time she was in great demand and very successful in Paris as France's most popular entertainer. After the war, she became known internationally, touring Europe, the United States, and South America. In Paris, she gave Atahualpa Yupanqui (Héctor Roberto Chavero)—the most important Argentine musician of folklore—the opportunity to share the scene, making his debut in July 1950. She helped launch the career of Charles Aznavour in the early 1950s, taking him on tour with her in France and the United States and recording some of his songs. At first she met with little success with U.S. audiences, who regarded her as downcast. After a glowing review by a prominent New York critic, however, her popularity grew, to the point where she eventually appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show eight times and at Carnegie Hall twice (1956 and 1957). Édith Piaf's signature song "La vie en rose" was written in 1945 and was voted a Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1998. Bruno Coquatrix' famous Paris Olympia music hall is where Piaf achieved lasting fame, giving several series of concerts at the hall, the most famous venue in Paris, between January 1955 and October 1962. Excerpts from five of these concerts (1955, 1956, 1958, 1961, 1962) were issued on record and CD and have never been out of print. The 1961 concerts were promised by Piaf in an effort to save the venue from bankruptcy and where she debuted her song "Non, je ne regrette rien". In April 1963, Piaf recorded her last song, "L'homme de Berlin". Piaf died of liver cancer at Plascassier, on the French Riviera, on 10 October 1963, but only publicly disclosed on the 11th, the same day that Jean Cocteau died. She slipped in and out of consciousness for the last months of her life. It is said that Sarapo drove her body back to Paris secretly so that fans would think she had died in her hometown. She is buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery, in Paris, where her grave is among the most visited.

·"The Rolling Stones" (UK LP) - The Rolling Stones

This is the first Stones’ LP as it was released in the UK back on April 17, 1964. As you can see, the cover of the original UK edition has no title or identifying information other than the photo and the Decca logo - an "unheard of" design concept back then originated by manager Andrew Oldham. Upon its release, The Rolling Stones became one of 1964's biggest sellers in the UK, staying at #1 for 12 weeks, while its USA version (England's Newest Hitmakers, released by the London label) reached #11 in the US charts, going gold in the process. In August 2002, England's Newest Hitmakers was reissued as a new remastered CD and SACD digipak by ABKCO, while this original version, its British counterpart, has remained out of print since 1987. Added are contemporary singles plus their first EP as bonus tracks. Enjoy it!

·"Wild Young Hearts" - Noisettes

Two years on from a debut album awash with punk spirit and scorching blues-rock, the London trio Noisettes return with Wild Young Hearts, a set of sleek pop songs steeped in soul, dizzy on disco and harking back to the days of blues and jazz greats. From the stomping electro-rock of "Saturday Night" and galloping funk grooves of first single "Don’t Upset The Rhythm", to the joyous, jazzy title track, the glorious ‘60s-tinged soul of "Never Forget You" and the sultry, shimmering pop of "24 Hours", in Wild Young Hearts, Noisettes have made what is set to be one of 2009’s most adventurous albums.

·"On the Radio: The Lucky Strike 'Lite Up Time' Shows" - Frank Sinatra

On the Radio: The Lucky Strike "Lite-Up Time" Shows compiles a series of nightly broadcasts Sinatra recorded for CBS, with heavy 'promotional consideration,' of course, from those cigarettes inhaled one after the other in so many of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer stories. These cuts don't provide the been-there, seen-it-all Chairman of the Board that would one day pack The Sands where he would lament about his "very good years." These ARE the good years. The exhaustive On the Radio delivers 25 different songs—the same ones he would both lay down in the recording studio on the same day he played these sessions and with which he would serenade audiences that same night in New York and Hollywood nightclubs. Any exhaustion is hardly detectable, though, as Sinatra sounds as unique and professional as ever, especially on swingers he would carry far into his golden years such as "You Do Something to Me" or "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm." Sinatra also shines on ballads, the highlight being "Don't Blame Me". The real draw here is being able to close your eyes and imagine coming home after work, firing up a tasty Lucky Strike (this is required, of course), mixing a Rob Roy and tuning in to hear Old Blue Eyes do what he does best before he even hit his prime.

·"Dedicado a Antonio Machado, Poeta" - Joan Manuel Serrat

Antonio Machado was one of Spain's 20th century's best poets. Raised in Andalucía, his poetry has become national common culture and this album greatly contributed to that. Serrat, himself a notable poet as well as the most important songwriter of Spain for the past thirty five years, composed excellent music for a handful of Machado's poems. The result is incredibly beautiful, with an match between tempo and meaning so outstanding that for the not-so-well-read it might be difficult to digest the news that it was not Serrat's own lyrics. This is a magic combination of two of Iberia's best: a poet with a word tried by Spain's trials and tribulations; a singer with a voice which evokes Spain. The result? A few songs with an expression that portraits the elation and passion of the true Spanish heart. For those who understand the Spanish language there probably cannot be a better touch of it, of its earnest people, and their buoyant perspective to life. Together with this: some memorable reflections as "Caminante no hay camino, se hace camíno al andar". (Traveller, you have no ready-made path forward; you create the path as you go along.)

·"Wilco 2009" - Wilco

Wilco (The Album) is the seventh studio album by American alternative rock group Wilco which was released June 30, 2009. According to lead singer Jeff Tweedy, the band "allow[ed] [themselves] a little bit more leeway in terms of sculpting the sound in the studio and doing overdubs and using the studio as another instrument". After Wilco released their sixth studio album, Sky Blue Sky, in 2007, they spent the following two years touring to promote the album. In August 2008, Billboard reported that Wilco had been playing two new songs, "One Wing" and "Sonny Feeling", at recent shows in anticipation of a new studio album.Rolling Stone revealed the title of the album on April 28, 2009. The album was recorded in Neil Finn's recording studio Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand. Members of Wilco were present to record material for a 7 Worlds Collide compilation album to benefit Oxfam. Guitarist Nels Cline and multi-instrumentalist Mikael Jorgensen provided overdubs once the band returned to Chicago, Illinois. The album was produced by the band and Jim Scott, who worked as an engineer on Being There, Summerteeth, and Sky Blue Sky. The band joined Scott in Valencia, California to mix the album. On May 13, 2009, the album leaked on the internet, and Wilco promptly responded by streaming the album for free on their website. The stream resulted in over 100,000 visits to Wilco's website on the 13th. The band also suggested that those who downloaded the leaked copy make a charitable donation to Inspiration Corporation, an organization that assists low-income families in Chicago. The album was named after the band because it "[felt] like what the band was meant to be".

·"Let It Be... Naked" - The Beatles

Let It Be… Naked is a version of the 1970 Let It Be album by The Beatles that was remixed and remastered under the direction of Paul McCartney. The album is presented in a form which Paul McCartney considered closer to its original artistic vision: to "get back" to the rock 'n' roll sound of their early years rather than the orchestral overdubs and embellishments which were added by Phil Spector in the production of the final Let It Be album. Paul McCartney in particular was always dissatisfied with the over produced sound on the Phil Spector remixes, especially for his song "The Long and Winding Road", which he believed was ruined by the process. George Harrison gave his approval for the ...Naked project before he died. McCartney's attitude contrasted with Lennon's from over two decades earlier. In his September 1980 Playboy interview, Lennon had defended Spector's work, saying "-He was given the shittiest load of badly-recorded shit with a lousy feeling to it ever, and he made something of it.-" The origin of the Let It Be...Naked project arose during a chance reunion of Paul McCartney and "Let It Be" film director Michael Lindsay-Hogg on an airplane flight in the early 2000s. McCartney and Lindsay-Hogg discussed the unavailability of the film on both VHS and DVD, which led to discussion of a possible remixed "soundtrack" to accompany a proposed future DVD release. In early 2002, McCartney recruited Abbey Road in-house engineers Paul Hicks, Guy Massey and Allan Rouse to go back into the vaults and assemble a brand new studio album from the 30 reels of tape recorded during the January 1969 sessions. Since much of the Let It Be material had been recorded live, many sound anomalies existed on the tapes. Hicks, Massey and Rouse did extensive work digitally cleaning up each individual track of every song before remixing it. Some takes were edited together to come up with the best possible final version. In the case of one song—"Dig a Pony"—one errant note sung by John Lennon was even digitally pitch-corrected. Two songs that had been included on the original Let It Be album, the traditional Liverpool folk song "Maggie Mae" and "Dig It" were both excised, as Paul McCartney considered them studio improvisations and too weak for inclusion. In their place was Lennon's "Don't Let Me Down," but rather than the b-side from the single, a composite edit of the two versions from the rooftop concert was inserted. "I've Got a Feeling" was also presented in a new composite edit of its two rooftop concert takes. "Across the Universe," which actually dates from nearly a year before the rest of the album was recorded, was retained, although stripped of almost all of its overdubs and, for the first time on record, played at correct speed. There is also a different solo in the song "Let It Be". Including versions from the original album and the two compilation albums 1 and Anthology 3, it is the fourth version of the "Let It Be" solo to be released by The Beatles. Another striking difference is in McCartney's "The Long and Winding Road," where the Naked producers chose the last recorded take over the rough early take used by Phil Spector for the original album. The original lyric reads "anyway, you'll never know, the many ways I've tried," whereas on this version it reads "anyway, you've always known, the many ways I've tried." Electric guitar and electric piano are also present, played respectively by Harrison and Billy Preston. Naturally, this version is devoid of Phil Spector's orchestral and choral overdubs; the unadorned take from the Let It Be album can be found on the compilation album Anthology 3. The studio dialogue from the original album was removed, as was the dialogue from the rooftop concert that had originally closed the album. Additionally, the running order is quite different from the Let It Be album. After the release of Let It Be... Naked in 2003, critics referred to this CD—with its simpler song versions—as being the "de-Spectorized" version of the original Let It Be album. It was first released in November 2003.

·"I Fought the Law" - The Bobby Fuller Four

Bobby Fuller (October 22, 1942 – July 18, 1966) was an American rock singer, songwriter, and guitar player best known for his single "I Fought the Law". Born in Baytown, Texas, Robert Gaston Fuller spent most of his youth in El Paso, Texas, where he idolized Buddy Holly, a fellow Texan (Holly was a native of Lubbock, Texas). He played in clubs and bars, and recorded on independent record labels in Texas, with a constantly-changing line-up, during the early 1960s. The only constant band members were Fuller himself (on vocals and guitar), and his younger brother, Randy Fuller (born on January 29, 1944, Hobbs, New Mexico) on bass. Most of these independent releases (except two songs that were recorded at the studio of Norman Petty in Clovis, New Mexico), and an excursion to Yucca Records, also in New Mexico, were recorded in the Fullers' own home-cum-studio, with Fuller acting as the producer. He even built a primitive echo chamber in the backyard. The quality of the recordings, using a couple of microphones and a mixing board purchased from a local radio station, was so impressive that he even offered the use of his 'studio' to local acts for free so he could hone his production skills. Fuller moved to Los Angeles in 1964 with his band The Bobby Fuller Four, and was signed to Mustang Records by producer Bob Keane, who was noted for discovering Ritchie Valens and producing many surf music groups.[1] By this time, group consisted of Bobby and brother Randy on vocals/guitar and bass respectively, Jim Reese on guitar and DeWayne Quirico (later replaced by Dalton Powell) on drums. At a time when the British Invasion and folk rock were the dominant genres in rock, Fuller stuck to Buddy Holly's style of classic rock and roll with Tex Mex flourishes. His recordings reveal the influence of Eddie Cochran, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, and the Everly Brothers in cover recordings and original compositions, as well as instrumental surf guitar. Less well known was Fuller's ability to emulate the reverb-laden surf guitar sounds of Dick Dale and the Ventures. His first Top 40 hit was "Let Her Dance," written by Bobby Fuller. His second hit, "I Fought the Law," hit #8 on Billboard. It was written by Sonny Curtis, a former member of Holly's group The Crickets, and recorded by the line-up of the Fuller brothers, James Reese on guitar, and Dalton Powell on drums. His third Top 40 hit was the Buddy Holly cover song "Love's Made a Fool of You." Just after "I Fought The Law" became a top ten hit, Bobby Fuller was found dead in his automobile, which was parked near his Los Angeles home. The police considered the death an apparent suicide/accident, however, some people believe Fuller was murdered. The investigation was botched from the start. The crime scene was not secured and no fingerprints were obtained. A witness also claimed seeing a police officer throw a can of gasoline found at the scene into the trash. Fuller was found with multiple wounds all over his body and covered in gasoline, leading many to speculate that the perpetrators fled before they could set the car on fire. Police later changed the cause of death to "accidental asphyxiation" citing no evidence of foul play. Despite the official cause of death stated by authorities, rumors and speculation still surround Fuller's mysterious death. Fuller is buried in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
