5.0 out of 5 stars Your CD collection is not complete without this release., 3 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Live (Audio CD)
CURTIS MAYFIELD was always my hero. I`ve started collecting his music in 1975. CURTIS/LIVE is one of his early solo-recordings. So you will find plenty of IMPRESSIONS songs as well as new songs. The recording/sound quality is for an early 70s recording brilliant. Curtis has recorded several other Live-LPs(CDs). But this one is the best. Great vocals and a great band behind Curtis are making this concert so special. So please don`t miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will never find a better Live-CD, 3 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Live (Audio CD)
BIRTHCONTROL is one of the leading German Rockbands. Started in the late 60s in Berlin. This Live-Recording is one of the early works of this amazing band. It was recorded in June 1974. Originally released on 2 LPs, it is now available on one CD. And it includes all 5 tracks: THE WORK IS DONE (16:50); BACK FROM HELL (15:35); GAMMA RAY (20:33); SHE`S GOT NOTHING ON YOU (5:35); LONG TALL SALLY (10:50). This is really a "Best of" what they have done until this concert. GAMMA RAY is a milestone in Rock History. Over the years, BIRTHCONTROL has recorded this song several times. But on this release you will find the most important version. So, do not miss this CD, if you are interested in great (German) Rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oklahoma Style Pow-Wow Songs, 3 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Memories (Audio CD)
From Pawnee, Oklahoma, YOUNG BIRD have firmly established a singing and drumming style deeply rooted in their Native pride and culture. These Grammy-nominated singers continue to bring the sounds of Native Oklahoma to the furthest reaches of pow-wow country. On this recording they gather around the drum and sing from the heart in a tribute to the loving memories of those that have passed on.

5.0 out of 5 stars NIKAMO - Sing, 3 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Nikamo (Audio CD)
Nikamo - the Cree word meaning "Sing!" - is what NORTHERN CREE has done so well for over two decades. Firmly grounded in their Plains Cree culture, they sing with an intensity and commitment that has resonated throughout all Native North America. Feel the thunder and the beauty of this multi-award winning pow-wow drum group from the Saddle Lake Cree Nation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live @ my hometown, 25 Mar. 2005
HOELDERLIN was and is the most important band to me. Because we are both from WUPPERTAL, Germany. HOELDERLIN was one of the great Rock/Prog. Rock bands of the 70s. This band is similar to bands like NOVALIS. - TRAUMSTADT-LIVE was recorded Live at the Opera House in Wuppertal on 24./25. October 1977. And this was one of my very first concerts I`ve ever seen. - HOELDERLIN are: Joachim Grumbkow: Keyboards and vocals on "Streaming"; Pablo Weeber: Guitar; Michael Bruchmann: Drums; Christoph "Nops" Noppeney: Viola and vocals; Hans Bäär: Bass. (Hans Bäär is also known as Hans Maahn. He later played with the Gianna Nannini - Band). The songs are: Intro (1:29), Schwebebahn (6:33), Häktik Intergaläktik (8:05), Circus (8:04), Phasing (11:07), Streaming (8:15), Die Stadt (12:12), Mad House (7:24), Sun Rays (8:44), Soft Landing (8:57). - You can find vocal and instrumental tracks on this release. As I know, HOELDERLIN never was really famous outside Germany. So please give this Band a try now. You won`t be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old folks never die., 25 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Kickin' It At The Barn (Audio CD)
This is the latest studio release by oldtime-rockers LITTLE FEAT. I first met this band in 1977 in Essen, Germany during their Rockpalast-Festival performance. Since then I`ve started to collect all of their items on vinyl. Over the years I`ve started to collect LITTLE FEAT on CD. And I was surprised, how much better it sounds on CD. ... Now I am working as a Radio DJ and last summer Hot Tomato Records sent me this fantastic new studio release. This is one of the best releases I`ve ever listened to. LITTLE FEAT has changed their style a little bit. They even sing in Spanish now (Corazones Y Sombras). They are more like a Jamband today. Many songs are longer than 6 minutes. But the change is good. You really can hear the fun that the guys had during these recording sessions. This 11-track release features Cajun, Rock and Blues-influences music. - I really hope, that LITTLE FEAT will go on like this. - Don`t miss this 2003 LITLE FEAT release. You won`t be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best + more, 25 Mar. 2005
This is it. 5 stars to this 4 CD-Box. - LITTLE FEAT was formed by LOWELL GEORGE in the late 60s after leaving the FRANK ZAPPA band. - The first 2 CD`s of this box are covering the best of the 70s albums. After the death of LOWELL GEORGE in 1979 the band broke up. In 1988 the band reunited with some new members: FRED TACKETT and CRAIG FULLER (he left the band after 3 albums) and SHAUN MURPHY. The third CD features the 80s and 90s releases featuring CRAIG FULLER, FRED TACKETT and SHAUN MURPHY. And the last CD is very special. You will find unreleased and promo tracks. - This is a CD-Box not only for fans. This is the perfect start for everyone who wants to find out more about this band. This release is a MUST for all music fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a typical LITTLE FEAT album., 25 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Shake Me Up (Audio CD)
This is the last LITTLE FEAT album that features CRAIG FULLER on vocals and Guitar. I have rated this album "only" with 4 stars, because you don`t find the typical LITTLE FEAT sound on this release. It is still a brilliant release, but for a longtime fan like me, this is one of the less important releases. However, they are 2 or 3 brilliant tracks on it, including my favourite track: Things Happen. - If you want to start a LITTLE FEAT collection, I would say: start with TIME LOVES A HERO, WAITING FOR COLUMBUS or LET IT ROLL. However, do not miss this release. You won`t be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don`t miss this Masterpiece, 25 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Let It Roll (Audio CD)
After the death of Lowell George in 1979, LITTLE FEAT broke up. They reunited in 1988 with 2 new members: Fred Tackett (Guitar, Mandolin and Trumpet) and Craig Fuller (Vocals, Guitars and Button Accordion). The result was an amazing album called LET IT ROLL. This 10-track release is the most important LITTLE FEAT album with Craig Fuller on vocals and Guitar. The voice of Craig Fuller often remains you to the voice of Lowell George. - The members of the band have changed, but the music is the same as the band broke up in the late 70s. You can find Rock, Cajun and Blues-influenced tracks on this album. - Don`t miss it.
