·"Recopilación Zitarrosa" - Alfredo Zitarrosa

Alfredo Zitarrosa (b. March 10, 1936, d. on January 17, 1989 in Montevideo, Uruguay; a Uruguayan singer, composer, poet, writer and journalist. He is regarded as one of the most important figures in the popular music of his country and Latin America in general. Among the songs which became big hits are included "Doña Soledad" (Miss Soledad), "Recordándote" (Remembering you), "Stéfanie", "Adagio a mi país" (Adagio to my country) , "Zamba Por Vos" (Zamba for you), "El Violín de Becho" (Becho's violin) and the poem by milonga "Guitarra negra" (Black Guitar). As a poet, he was honored by the Inspectorate of Montevideo with the Municipal Poetry Award of 1959, for the book Explicaciones (Explanations) , which he never wanted to publish. In 1988 his storybook Por si el recuerdo (In case I remember), was published, containing stories written at various times during his life. Like any creator, Alfredo Zitarrosa nourishes his work from several sources, but even so, in his particular case emphasis has to be placed on the highly autobiographical nature of his compositions.

·"Frank Sinatra Sings His Greatests Hits on Columbia Records" - Frank Sinatra

The 1940s were Sinatra's halcyon days. For the first time ever, thousands of screaming teenage girls converged on the Paramount Theater in Manhattan, their public display of affection for their new-found hero expressed in legendary proportions. Dramatic episodes of thunderous screaming and "swooning" on the part of Sinatra devotees heralded his arrival, and prompted newspaper columnists to nickname him "Swoonatra!" Musically, the Columbia years represent an essential period in the vocalist's amazingly versatile career. It was during his nine year association with the label, from 1943 to 1952, that Sinatra perfected the smooth, romantic styling that made him the most influential vocalist of the twentieth century, and established him as the greatest singing artist of all time. It was at Columbia that Sinatra became 'The Voice Thrilling Millions,' popularizing classics such as "Nancy (With The Laughing Face)" and "Saturday Night (Is The Loneliest Night In The Week)" (1944), "Put Your Dreams Away" (1945), All Of Me" (1946) and I've Got A Crush On You" (1947). In 1951, while in the midst of intense personal and professional woes, he entered the Columbia studios in New York, and recorded "I'm A Fool To Want You," the rendition of which is generally considered to be the single most intense, emotional performance of his entire performing career. Through his music, he made statements on social tolerance, with his poignant reading of The House I Live In," (for which he won a special Academy Award in 1946) becoming a Sinatra standard, and the anthem for a generation of loyal fans, and in 1946 recorded a swingin' jazz version of "Sweet Lorraine" with The Metronome All-Stars (featuring Nat 'King' Cole on piano). With Frank Sinatra's Columbia epoch standing firmly as the cornerstone of his career, (the foundation, in fact, of the vastly different musical styles he would later explore with the likes of Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Gordon Jenkins, among others), it has been Legacy's goal to treat each and every issue with the utmost respect. In every way, Sinatra's Columbia recordings have finally arrived in a manner befitting their importance in the realm of musical history, and this special disc features 18 spectacular examples of Sinatra's incomparable Columbia artistry. Includes special alternate takes of the Sinatra classics, "Laura" and "Body And Soul."

·"Sheer Heart Attack" - Queen

Sheer Heart Attack is a Queen album from 1974. It was their third studio album, and was produced by Queen and Roy Thomas Baker for EMI in the UK, and Elektra in the US. The release of Sheer Heart Attack coincided with Queen's first tour of Japan, which caused country-wide hysteria with numerous Japanese fans watching the band's first tour in Asia. Sheer Heart Attack was Queen's first album to hit the US Top 20 peaking at #12 in 1975 and was certified Gold in sales by the R.I.A.A. in 1975. The album is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

·"Cavern Club Tapes" - The Beatles

On 22 August 1962, Manchester-based Granada Television sent a film crew to the Cavern Club to film a few minutes of The Beatles' lunch time stage performance with the potential to be used on a local TV program, Know The North. It has been common opinion that The Beatles were filmed performing "Some Other Guy" (Barrett) (in fact they did two different performances of this same song that day), and were also filmed some alternate shots from different angles while the group played “Money [That's What I Want"]” and "Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey". The sound quality of the film was considered so bad, that on 5 September 1962 Granada sent an audio recording crew back to The Cavern to re-record The Beatles' night-time performance with the intent to dub the recording onto the film from 22 August. At the August session only one microphone was used. At the September session, three microphones were used. Apparently, the entire September session was recorded by Granada sound engineer Gordon J. Butler but apparently the tape no longer exists and only two songs ("Some Other Guy" and "Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey") survive in the form of acetates, today owned by Apple. All these different versions (two of "Some Other Guy" from August 22, and one more of "Some Other Guy" plus “Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey” this time from September 5) are featured here. As bonus tracks you’ll find a rehearsal circa October 1962 (even Ringo has confirmed he's drumming during that rehearsal after hearing the tape) where the group can be heard working out their newest song and future classic “I Saw Her Standing There”, as well as reviving a couple of older compositions (“One After 909” and “Catswalk”). These are the only known recordings made at the Cavern Club in Liverpool. Enjoy it!

·"Antología" - Silvio Rodríguez

Silvio Rodríguez Domínguez (born November 29, 1946 in San Antonio de los Baños) is a Cuban musician-songwriter, leader of the nueva trova movement. He is known for his highly eloquent and symbolic lyrics. Many of his songs have become classics in Latin American music, such as "Ojalá", "Playa Girón", and many others. Rodríguez, musically and politically, is a symbol of the Latin American left wing. Several of his songs praise the revolutionary figure Che Guevara and he is also currently deputy in the Cuban parliament. His lyrics are notably introspective. His songs combine romanticism, love (even eroticism), revolutionary politics, and idealism. The entire work of Silvio Rodriguez offers an intimate and introspective window into the life cycle of the artist. Silvio stands out in the Spanish-speaking world for the intimacy and subtlety of his lyrics, as well as for his acoustic melodies and "chord picking." He is particularly popular amongst intellectual circles of the left in Latin America and Spain. He has also often served as Cuban cultural emissary in events of solidarity. After more than 40 years of artistic work, Rodríguez has now written a vast number of songs and poems (said to be between 500 and more than one thousand), many of which have never been set to music and probably never will be. Although his musical knowledge has been continuously increasing (counting among his teachers the famous Cuban composer Leo Brouwer), he is more widely praised for the poetry in his songs than for the accompanying music. His lyrics are a staple of leftist culture throughout the whole Spanish-speaking world, and he has been banned from the media during several of the dictatorial regimes that ruled Latin America in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

·"Clapton UnPlugged" - Eric Clapton

Clapton caught the "unplugged" trend just at the right time, when the public was hungry to hear how well rock stars and their material can hold up when stripped of elaborate production values. Clapton himself seemed baffled by the phenomenon, especially when picking up the armload of Grammys Unplugged earned him, including Record and Song of the Year for "Tears in Heaven," the heart-rending elegy to his young son, Conor. That song and a reworked version of "Layla" got most of the attention, but the rest of the album has fine versions of acoustic blues numbers such as "Malted Milk," "Rollin' & Tumblin', and "Before You Accuse Me" that make it worth investigating further.

· "Yupanqui" - Atahualpa Yupanqui

Atahualpa Yupanqui (31 January 1908 - 23 May 1992) was an Argentine singer, songwriter, guitarist, and writer. He is considered the most important Argentine folk musician of the 20th century. Yupanqui was born as Héctor Roberto Chavero Aramburo in Pergamino (Buenos Aires Province), in the Argentine pampas, about 200 kilometers away from Buenos Aires. His family moved to Tucumán when he was ten. In a bow to two legendary Incan kings, he adopted the stage name Atahualpa Yupanqui, which became famous the world over. In his early years, Yupanqui travelled extensively through the northwest of Argentina and the Altiplano studying the indigenous culture. He also became radicalized and joined the Communist Party of Argentina. In 1931, he took part in the failed uprising of the Kennedy brothers in order to press the government de facto of Uriburu and to give air to the democratic radical project anti facist in support to Hipólito Yrigoyen and was forced to seek refuge in Uruguay. He returned to Argentina in 1934. In 1935, Yupanqui paid his first visit to Buenos Aires; his compositions were growing in popularity, and he was invited to perform on the radio. Shortly thereafter, he made the acquaintance of pianist Antonieta Paula Pepin Fitzpatrick, nicknamed "Nenette", who became his lifelong companion and musical collaborator under the pseudonym "Pablo Del Cerro". Because of his Communist Party affiliation (which lasted until 1952), his work suffered from censorship during Juan Perón's presidency; he was detained and incarcerated several times. He left for Europe in 1949. Édith Piaf invited him to perform in Paris on 7th July, 1950. He immediately signed contract with “Chant Du Monde”, the recording company that published his first LP in Europe, Miner I am, which obtained the first prize of Best Foreign Disc of the Charles Gross Academy, which included three hundred fifty participants of all the continents in the Contest the International of Folklore. He subsequently toured extensively throughout Europe. He returned regularly to Argentina, but these visits became less frequent when the military dictatorship of Jorge Videla came to power in 1976. In February of 1968, Yupanqui was named Gentleman of the Arts and the Letters of France by the Ministry of Culture of that country, by the work realised throughout 18 years to act and to offer its Literature to the Gallic country. Some of his songs are included in the programs of Institutes and Schools where Spanish Literature is taught. In 1989, an important cultural center of France, the University of Nanterre, asked Yupanqui to write the lyrics of a Cantata to commemorate the Bicentennial of the French Revolution. The piece, entitled “The Sacred Word” (Parole Sacree), was released before high French authorities. It was not a recollection of historical facts but rather a tribute to all the oppressed towns that freed themselves. Yupanqui died in Nimes, France in 1992 at the age of 84; his remains were cremated and dispersed on his beloved Cerro Colorado on 8th June, 1992.

·"Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" - AC/DC

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is the third studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released in September 1976. All songs were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Bon Scott. It was originally released on Albert Productions. A modified international edition was released on Atlantic Records in 1976 which is presented here. This international edition of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, released in November 1976, is considerably different from the original Australian edition, and features a different cover and track order. It was not released in the USA until April 1981. Most editions of this album contain edited versions of the title track and "Ain't No Fun (Waiting Round to Be a Millionaire)", but the 1994 remastered CD on Atco Records contains full length versions of both songs.
