“When I first became acquainted with the scores of Bernard Herrmann’s Souvenirs de voyage and David Del Tredici’s Magyar Madness, I was struck by how much these seductive quintets had in common, despite being completely different in mood and style. Both of these compelling works were written for string quartet plus clarinet by distinguished American composers who were pioneers in the Neo-Romantic movement, and both wistfully evoke the spirit of diverse European cultures. They seemed to be the ideal, odd couple. And Magyar Madness would be a world première release, to boot, so I felt they just had to be recorded together.” – Ralph Evans, Fine Arts Quartet

Claudie Fritsch, born on December 25, 1952 in Paris, grew up in Tréport, and in the early '70s she became a fashion designer. Drawn into the musical orbit by her friends, she began singing with various jazz, new wave, and R&B bands in the early '80s. In 1983 she met Jean Michel Rivat, a composer and producer who had already made his name working with Joe Dassin, Michel Delpech, France Gall, and Patrick Juvet, among many others. In 1986, Rivat composed for her "Voyage Voyage," an extremely catchy synth pop number that topped the charts in many European countries and even hit number five in Britain, a remarkable feat for a French-language song…

This double-CD release from Britain's Beat Goes On label should interest anyone who's even slightly serious in appreciating Dan Fogelberg's music. For starters, in the absence of any upgrades since the late '80s in the sound of Sony Music's domestic Fogelberg CDs, the remastering of Souvenirs is more than a little welcome – the man's whole early catalog ought to have been remastered long before 2006, based on the crisp results here and the fresh edge it adds to music that is otherwise extremely familiar. And then there's the contents of the first disc, containing Fogelberg's debut Home Free album, which was not a success at the time of its release. Fogelberg and original producer Norbert Putnam remixed the original multi-track tapes from Home Free when it was time to do the CD release, and issued what was, in effect, a somewhat different album, with instruments shifted around in the mix and alterations in the framing and conceptions of various songs.

Connie Francis played an important part in late-'50s and 1960s American pop music as one of the most versatile vocalists in the field (she has been likened to Pat Boone in that respect) and one of the few women to join the top ranks of Italian-American entertainers like Dean Martin and Tony Bennett. Souvenirs is a four-disc career retrospective that goes beyond the hits – of which there are many – to present her early recordings as a demo singer, offbeat novelties like "Robot Man," and many non-hit singles and album sides.

Collects the original 1974 and 1975 albums from the French orchestra leader, together on one CD! Includes covers of The Carpenters' "Yesterday Once More" and Mikis Theodorakis' "Theme From 'Serpico". French composer/conductor Paul Mauriat is a classically trained musician who decided to pursue a career in popular music. His first major success came in 1962, as a co-writer of the European hit "Chariot." In 1963, the song was given English lyrics, renamed "I Will Follow Him," and became a number one American hit for Little Peggy March. Mauriat is best remembered for his 1968 worldwide smash "Love Is Blue."

Die Wundertüte aus Leipzig, die sich in musikalischen Dingen schon seit geraumer Zeit kaum mehr sinnvoll einsortieren lässt, hat diesmal eine fünf Songs starke EP zusammengeschraubt, was schon mal den Vorteil hat, dass man nicht wieder fünf Jahre auf einen Longplayer warten muss wie zwischen "Orange" (2011) und "Everchild" (2016). Denn beim Songwriting gibt es für die Band keinen Zeitdruck, das Musizieren und Songs erschaffen selbst ("im Refugium Band", wie Torsten Wenzel es im Interview ausdrückte) steht im Mittelpunkt. Doch nun waren eben diese fünf Songs fertig, passten gut zusammen und da wollte man die auch als EP herausbringen. Mit einem tollen, auf Leinwand gezeichneten Coverartwork noch obendrauf.

If the Billboard charts were sufficient to tell the complete story of an artist's career, you'd write off Betty Lavette in a heartbeat after scoring a Top Ten R&B hit with her 1963 Atlantic debut "My Man - He's a Loving Man," Lavette never again returned to the same commercial heights, and the label soon terminated her contract. But she went on to make a series of devastatingly powerful deep soul records for a number of small independent labels, capped off by the 1965 cult classic "Let Me Down Easy," and by 1972 she was back in the Atlantic fold, this time signing to Atco to record a cover of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" followed by an album's worth of material cut at Muscle Shoals with producer Brad Shapiro. But after the first single "Your Turn to Cry" flopped, the planned LP Child of the 70s was shelved, and Lavette was once again dropped.

Singer Demis Roussos, known for his dramatic, operatic vocal stylings, was born Artemios Ventouris Roussos in Alexandria, Egypt, on June 15, 1946, to Greek expatriate parents. In the early '60s, however, the family decided to return to their homeland, and once there, the young Roussos (who had studied trumpet and sung in the church choir in Egypt) began playing in local bands. One of these was Aphrodite's Child, which also featured Vangelis Papatanassiou and Lucas Sideras. A huge hit in Europe, especially France, the band released a handful of albums before breaking up in 1971. With his label contacts in place, however, Roussos was able to secure a deal as a solo recording artist, and later that same year issued the single "We Shall Dance," also included on the album On the Greek Side of My Mind. The 1970s were a prolific time for Roussos, and he released a number of singles and albums that charted highly on the European and Latin American charts. In 1978 the singer decided to retire, and moved to Malibu Beach, where he kept a lower profile.

In the decades since its founding, the Scottish National Orchestra has earned a reputation as a distinguished ensemble with an extensive concert schedule, wide-ranging repertoire, and a significant representation on recordings. The SNO is the direct descendant of the Scottish Orchestra, founded in Glasgow in 1890; with the establishment of the Scottish National Orchestra Society in 1950 with monies from Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Dundee, the SNO became a permanent ensemble. Throughout its first 40 years, the Scottish Orchestra had no permanent principal conductor, instead relying on a series of eminent guest conductors.
