Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Brain Salad Perjury

It was only a question of time. It had to happen. After all, didn't the Orb's Alex Paterson and a host of ecstasy-addled dance music producers take the music of Pink Floyd into the mixologist's lab? Emerson, Lake & Palmer, whose very name is synonymous with rock excess and the curse of prog rock, has now been given the same treatment by producer Mike Bennett on this (shudder) three-CD box set from Burning Airlines. Oh yes, and it was done with the cooperation and participation of Keith Emerson. Discs one and two each begin with remixes of "Fanfare for the Common Man," which was already a reinterpretation of Aaron Copland's canonical classical work. Jungle, ambient, techno, and even hard house are used by Bennett to restring the piece, and Emerson re-recorded bits and bites for texture. The rest of discs one and two are reworkings of ELP "classics" such as "I Believe in Father Christmas," "Brain Salad Surgery," "Take a Pebble," etc., and a deconstruction of Carl Palmer's aggressive drumming style on "Palmstone" at the end of disc two. Disc three consists of various remixes of -- guess what? It's "Fanfare for the Common Man" once again, by such luminaries as Digger, Clive Mead, Simon Guilfoyle, Graham Pilgrim, and Bennett himself. This is not for everybody, but ELP fans, wherever they may be, will be tempted to realize this box of electronic plunder for all of its dubious glory.

John Arch from Fates Warning

John Arch (born John Maurice Archambault, May 15, 1959 in Colorado Springs) is an American progressive metal singer most notable for his work with the band Fates Warning. Arch co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with guitarist Jim Matheos, and was the band's sole lyricist. After their third album, Awaken the Guardian, was released, Arch was asked to quit his job or leave the band. Financial obligations made it impossible for Arch to quit his job, and he argued that he had shown 100% commitment to the band throughout the years. However, the band informed him that they had to let him go and started to look for another singer. In one interview with John Arch, he said that he would have quit his job if he was asked, but the rest of the band never asked him to.

A Twist of Fate is an EP by singer John Arch, released on June 17, 2003 through Metal Blade Records. At the time, the EP was Arch's first musical work in over seventeen years since leaving progressive metal band Fates Warning in 1987, with whom he recorded their first three albums; the last being Awaken the Guardian (1986). Consisting of only two tracks, A Twist of Fate features Fates Warning founder and guitarist Jim Matheos, with whom Arch would later release a collaborative album in 2011, entitled Sympathetic Resonance, under the banner of Arch/Matheos. Also among the line-up are former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and current Fates Warning bassist Joey Vera.

Cuby + Blizzards

Cuby + Blizzards – also known as Cuby & the Blizzards are a Dutch blues group, founded in 1964 by vocalist Harry Muskee, and guitarist Eelco Gelling.[1] During the 1960s, the band's mixture of sound, drawing upon a variety of genres which included blues and rock and roll, gave them a pioneering sound which was completely different from any other Dutch band in the same time period, using the name Peter & the Blizzards. The spelling of the name varies, with 'Cuby' also written as 'QB' and the ampersand (&) also written as 'and' or '+' and the 'and' sometimes left out. The spelling 'Cuby + Blizzards' was used on the first albums.

Jefferson Starship

Jefferson Starship is an American rock band formed in the early 1970s by several members of the former psychedelic rock group Jefferson Airplane. The band has undergone several major changes in personnel and genres through the years while retaining the same Jefferson Starship name. The current Jefferson Starship, led by co-founder Paul Kantner, more closely resembles its original mix of psychedelic and electric folk music than the pop-driven tunes it was widely known for in the early to mid-1980s. It is not to be confused with Starship, a spin-off of the group featuring former co-lead singer Mickey Thomas that also periodically tours. The latter group is most frequently identified with the 1980s pop tunes of Jefferson Starship.

Jack Bruce & Robin Trower

Two legends, one hour of fearsome axe-wielding! 

Essa é uma parceria que sempre teve tudo para dar certo. O escocês Jack Bruce teve importantíssimo papel na criação do blues rock (e depois, do hard rock e do heavy metal) inglês, tendo participado do Blues Incorporated (de Alexis Korner) e do Graham Bond Organisation, bandas nas quais tocou com o baterista Ginger Baker, que viria a ser seu parceiro no Cream algum tempo depois. Tocou também no John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, onde conheceu o guitarrista Eric Clapton, que completaria a formação do Cream. Antes mesmo de montar o chamado “primeiro dos supergrupos”, teve tempo ainda de participar da banda do tecladista Manfred Mann, ou seja, esteve envolvido com o “crème de la crème” da cena musical inglesa dos anos 60. Com o Cream, que teve carreira tão meteórica quanto avassaladora, simplesmente revolucionou o rock, abrindo espaço para os deliciosos excessos dos anos vindouros. Depois disso, lançou uma penca de discos solo brilhantes (dos 3 membros do Cream, era na minha singela opinião o mais criativo e talentoso), e formou outros trios memoráveis como o West, Bruce & Laing (com os membros do Mountain Leslie West e Corky Laing) e o BBM (que incluía Gary Moore e Ginger Baker). Já o inglês Robin Trower não ficou muito atrás. Tendo integrado no final dos anos 60 o Procol Harum, participou dos álbuns que forjaram o rock progressivo, do qual o Harum é certamente um dos pioneiros (junto a The Moody Blues, The Nice e, um pouco depois, o King Crimson). Com eles, gravou os discos mais clássicos, tendo saído da banda em 1972. A partir daí, lançou uma série de discos sob a égide de Robin Trower Band, dentre os quais se destacou “Bridge of Sighs”, de 1974. Seu timbre na guitarra (obviamente, uma Fender Stratocaster) foi sempre comparado ao de Jimi Hendrix, sendo até mesmo chamado em determinados pontos de sua carreira de “o Hendrix branco”. De fato, sua habilidade em tirar timbres recheados de influências combinando blues e psicodelismo tinham, e têm, muito do estilo de Jimi. Os caminhos de Trower e Bruce se juntaram pela primeira vez no começo dos anos 80, quando se reuniram para gravar o disco “B.L.T.”, que apresentava um power trio completado pelo baterista Bill Lordan. Um disco muito bom, apesar da sonoridade (mais tarde, datada) que viria a vingar nos anos 80 já estar dando suas mostras no trabalho. Na sequência, lançaram “Truce” em 1982, trocando o baterista por Reg Isidore, sendo que nesse segundo disco não conseguiram manter o mesmo pique, e a reação da crítica e do público não foi das mais positivas. Afinal, seu estilo incorporou elementos de funk e soul, com mais “groove”, o que fugia ao som original dos envolvidos. 

De qualquer forma, em 2008 os dois se reencontraram, mais de 25 anos depois, para gravar mais um trabalho. Após os graves problemas de saúde que enfrentou em 2003/2004, quando sofreu um transplante de fígado e quase faleceu, Jack Bruce parece que embarcou num ritmo de extrema produtividade e criatividade. Após uma breve reunião do Cream (e boatos sobre outra reunião, do West, Bruce & Laing), Bruce e Trower finalmente entraram no estúdio e registraram o ótimo “Seven Moons”, junto ao baterista Gary Husband, antigo companheiro de Bruce em outras empreitadas. Sem sombra de dúvidas, o melhor disco gravado pela dupla até agora. Legitimamente um trabalho cooperativo, o talento de ambos transborda de forma totalmente balanceada no decorrer do álbum. É nitidamente um trabalho lançado sem pressões de gravadoras, sem a necessidade de “ter que vender”. Todas as faixas são boas, alternando momentos mais rápidos, “uptempo”, com outros mais arrastados, “midtempo”, e ainda algumas baladas introspectivas e reflexivas compostas em tom menor, com letras certamente influenciadas pelo momento atual de Bruce, que as canta de forma praticamente confessional. Este é o caso de, por exemplo, “Just Another Day” e “I’m Home”. É interessante notar que Jack não utilizou, como de praxe, as letras de Pete Brown, seu parceiro de longa data. O mesmo pode ser dito de Robin, que tem em Keith Reid seu principal letrista. No presente caso, tal trabalho ficou também a cargo da dupla Bruce/Trower. Os solos e bases de Trower no disco são de uma precisão absurda, com notas na medida certa e distorção idem. Poucos guitarristas hoje em dia tocam com tanta classe, unindo originalidade e personalidade com as modernas técnicas de gravação, num estilo ao mesmo tempo limpo e com boas doses de efeitos. Em “Close To Me”, o uso do pedal wah-wah chega a emocionar, um toque de mestre. O som do baixo está um pouco mais no fundo do que de costume, em se tratando de um disco com participação de Jack, mas mesmo assim há ótimas passagens. A bateria de Husband, por sua vez, está excelente como sempre, mesmo sem ter grande destaque específico. Não há músicas de destaque, pois o álbum é muito coeso, todo no mesmo (alto) nível. Para escolher duas, posso citar a empolgante “The Last Door” e o bluesão “Bad Case Of Celebrity”, que são daquelas de arrepiar. O que talvez faça falta no disco, como um todo, sejam algumas partes com solos estendidos, tradicionais dos trabalhos pregressos de ambos, mas o que parece é que provavelmente tenham deixado isso para as apresentações ao vivo, que por sinal já estão sendo marcadas agora em 2009 (vamos torcer para que sejam devidamente registradas em vídeo!). Dessa forma, o enfoque foi nas composições, e nisso eles se saíram muito bem. Enfim, não apenas um disco de rock clássico, mas acima de tudo um disco de rock feito com muita classe.

B.B.King and Eric Clapton "Riding with the King"

Riding with the King is a blues album by Eric Clapton and B.B. King that was released in 2000. It was their first collaborative album and won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album. The album reached number one on Billboard's Top Blues Albums and was certified 2× Multi-Platinum in the United States. Riding with the King was also released on a DVD-Audio in higher resolution and with a 5.1 surround sound mix in 2000.

The album was generally well received by reviewers, although some felt that it could have been better, and that the sound on the CD was too polished for a blues album.

Riding with the King was the first collaborative album by Eric Clapton and B.B. King. They performed together for the first time at Cafe Au Go Go in New York City in 1967 when Clapton was 22 and a member of Cream, but did not record together until 1997 when King collaborated with Clapton on the song "Rock Me Baby" for his duets album, Deuces Wild. Clapton looked up to King and had always wanted to make an album with him. King said they had discussed the project often, and added: "I admire the man. I think he's No. 1 in rock 'n' roll as a guitarist and No. 1 as a great person." At the time of recording Riding with the King, Clapton was 55 and King 74.

Clapton initiated the recording sessions for Riding with the King and included some of his regular session musicians on the album. He also chose the songs and co-produced the album with Simon Climie, who had previously worked on several of Clapton's albums. While this would appear to be a Clapton album recorded with King, Clapton gave center-stage to King, who took the lead on many of the songs with his singing and his solos.

Riding With King

Glenn Hughes & Pat Thrall

After the break-up of Deep Purple, Glenn Hughes had not been prolific in his output. By 1981 he had only produced one solo album; 1977's Play Me Out, an album focused on Hughes’ love for soul and funk. By comparison, guitarist Pat Thrall had worked on several albums with Automatic Man and Pat Travers. Thrall had come to the attention of Hughes while he was trying to write new material in Los Angeles. The two got together and quickly struck up a working partnership. The result was the Hughes/Thrall album. Hughes/Thrall marked a return to hard rock for Hughes. The album itself has a definite AOR sound, but with influences of new wave and post-punk. Thrall made good use of guitar synthesizers and many have cited the album as being quite influential to the direction of rock music in the 80s. It was critically well received upon its release. However, despite the positive reception from critics, the album failed to sell well at the time. It has since, however, become somewhat of a cult album.

After Tea - Blues Rock

After Tea was a Dutch flower power band formed in the Hague in 1967 by Hans van Eijck (keyboards, guitar, vocals), U.K. native Ray Fenwick (guitar, vocals), Rob "Polle" Edward (bass, organ, vocals), and Martin Hage (drums). Their first hit was "Not Just a Flower in Your Hair," and they carried on, despite personnel changes, until the early '70s.
