5.0 out of 5 stars A delicious and eclectic selection, March 17, 2012
This review is from: Leonard Cohen's Jukebox (Audio CD)
This CD contains a lovely selection of tracks and has been clearly well researched. These songs and poetry are very much part of the rich tapestry from which Leonard has been informed and inspired - from Garcia Lorca and Allen Ginsberg to The Righteous Brothers and Ray Charles via Hank Williams and Gene Autrey. A definitive collection of cuts that clearly show how Cohen developed his muse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Re - Pacakging of truly clasic album, March 17, 2012
If this album was released today it would be hailed as the true work of genius it undoubtedly is. But in 1972 it barely received attention anywhere. It is repackages like this - albeit expensive - that help to give it the acclaim it so richly deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous!, March 17, 2012
This review is from: An Ashtray Heart (Audio CD)
Beefheart fans will not be disappointed with this well recorded collection. Don is excellent and the band is excellent too; well worth the wait, well worth the weight! Don composed as he felt with no dressing and is why his artistry stands out and why his fans love him.

Max Miller -of himself- said 'There will never be another' Don Vliet of a different genre the same sentiments apply except most of us have trouble accepting his going. Big Joan for me, was my clue to his deep understanding of the human predicament.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginary landscapes and futurist film tracks, December 2, 2010
Here's the nexus where the academic highbrow rubs up against the populist score-masters of early cold war sci-fi cinema. Most anthologies of early electronic music eschew the mixing of the two streams, generally opting for the more furrow-browed approach. But on comparing Stockhausen's "first masterpiece of electronic music", 1955's Gesang Der Juenglinge, with big screen helpings from Bernard Hermann and Louis and Bebe Barron, the juxtaposition makes total sense.

Movie music by the end of the post-World War II decade was every bit as otherworldly and out-there as those experiments conducted in the world's preeminent educational institutions, attempting to evoke the new climate of fear brought about by the predominantly psychological clash of the two global superpowers. As Alan Clayson observes in his sleevenotes, "To many, the notion of machine-music was unnatural, synthetic... creepy," perfect for the suspenseful atmospheres prevalent in the science-fiction and horror flicks of the time. This ecology of fear is nowhere more evident than on Hermann's score for Robert Wise's masterwork The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951), a spellbinding assault structured along a spine of sine-wave generations and acute spectral theremin assault
