Comic Legends Comic Legends : VARIOUS ARTISTS : 4DVD
Before there was Dick Cavett the talk show host, there was Cavett the comedian. his early career as a writer for Jack Paar & Johnny Carson led him into the world of stand-up comedy, where his contemporaries were the likes of Woody Allen and Bill Cosby. Cavett would later welcome both to The Dick Cavett Show. But Cavett's comedian guests were by no means limited to his contemporaries. He developed warm personal relationships with people like Groucho Marx, Bob Hope and Jack Benny. These great raconteurs and storytellers had some of their finest moments in Cavett's studio, where they found a unique forum that didn't necessarily require them to be funny. But of course they simply couldn't be anything else.

Confessin' Confessin' : NAT GONELLA : CD
It was when he joined the Billy Cotton Band in 1930 that Nat, aged 22, made it to the ëbig-time'. He progressed to working with Roy Fox then Lew Stone, and finally took the plunge in 1935 with his own jazz group, The Georgians. Until the outbreak of war, they were very popular and recorded for Parlophone. The New Georgians, with a different personnel, recorded intermittently for Columbia between 1940 and 1942. The three tracks (where Nat reverts to the pre-war name of The Georgians) and which open this collection were made for Decca in 1945. Recordings were very thin on the ground over the next few years, and by the early 50s Nat was appearing as a solo turn in variety theatres and nightclubs. Happily, Nat re-emerged on the jazz scene toward the end of the decade, and began recording again. The first group of recordings by The Georgia Jazz Band include trombonist Roy Crimmins, clarinetist Archie Semple and pianist Fred Hunt amongst the personnel. The Strong Arm Men recordings and the final group by The Georgia Jazz Band feature the two Lennies: Felix on piano and Hasting on drums. When It's Sleepy Time Down South showcases Nat in duet with Lennie Felix. Although Nat hung up his trumpet for good in the 1970s, he carried on singing in his own inimitable style. He guested with several distinguished jazz musicians and combos in Holland and all over the United Kingdom until shortly before his death at the grand old age of ninety in 1998.

Crayons Crayons : DONNA SUMMER : 3CD
CRAYONS' bore all the hallmarks of another classic Donna Summer album...and it was. It spawned three Billboard Dance Chart #1 Singles in 'I'm A Fire', 'Stamp Your Feet' and 'Fame (The Game)'. This re-mastered re-issue, is packaged in a sumptuous case-bound book, containing the original credits and acknowledgements alongside newly authored liner notes by noted US writer Christian John Wikane, with brand new interviews with Evan Bogart and Sebastian Arocha Morton, as well as his archive interview with Donna Summer undertaken at the time of the album's original release. The album features the original UK configured studio album, which featured the non-US album track 'It's Only Love', as well as two additional CDs with 20 mixes from the three singles released from the album. The album featured several producers, including Greg Kurstin, J.R. Rotem, Sebastian Arocha Morton, as well as reuniting her with a 'Bogart', in the shape of Evan 'Kidd' Bogart, son of the late Neil Bogart, founder of Casablanca Records. There was enough material recorded in demo form to have made 'CRAYONS' Donna Summer's fifth Double-Album (sixth, if you count 'On The Radio ­ Greatest Hits Vols. 1 & 2') but it was decided to create a single album. 'CRAYONS' left everyone wanting more, especially as the singles were all triumphant on the Billboard Dance Chart and that's probably the best place to be...at the Top.

Drifting And Dreaming Drifting And Dreaming : BERT KAEMPFERT : 2CD
German composer, producer and orchestra director - often described as the father of easy listening. He developed his own unmistakable style and a joyful sound that is still a success today. He sold millions of records and this collection brings us 52 great tracks from those early sixties LPs - all in stereo. For many people it will be a step back in time with fond memories of owning those original LPs, and for many more of us of growing up listening to our parents 'Hi Fi' blasting out the likes of Kaempfert along with Ray Conniff and James Last. He was also the man behind the Beatles first single 'My Bonnie' during their time in Hamburg backing Tony Sheridon. Add in the fact that he wrote such great classics as Strangers In The Night and Spanish Eyes ... He truly was a musical legend!
