Perhaps if the Yardbirds had continued on, they might have put out a recording like this. In fact, some of the musical passages present in this album evoke the style of music the Yardbirds were playing live near the end of their existence check out "Live at the Anderson Theater" to get a better understanding. It is certainly a shame the band disbanded shortly after the album was released and Keith Relf ended up dying soon after.
Fortunately, this recording lives on forever as a proud reminder of the man and his music. It takes a certain taste of music for this and I love it. Riff oriented and great vocals. This is their only record, Ahead of its time. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. Iv'e had this album a couple of years now, bought on the reviews and the fact that i own music by all these artists from their previous projects and in my opinion the music they made with their other groups is far more entertaining and cohesive than this album.
Renaissance were a ground breaking progressive band, Steamhammer were arguably ahead of Jethro Tull in taking the Blues to another dimension and Captain Beyonds first album is a stone cold hard rock classic. On paper this album should be excellent but it feels like they went into the studio just expecting it to all fall into place, the tracks start off okay but mostly just repeat the same phrase over and over again, after a while you find yourself willing one of these great musicians to take it somewhere else, when it happens it's too little too late and your left with the overall feeling of a glorified jam session.
Speculation as to where this band might have gone is pointless as when he died the following year Keith Relf was in the process of reforming the original Rennaissance line up[which in itself puts this album into perspective] they went onto make two very good albums under the name of illusion.
I'm not saying this album is awful,just that it's far from the classic that some people are trying to paint it as. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote.
Please try again. Armageddon were a heavy-riffing quartet fronted by ex-Yardbird, Keith Relf he died the year after this release. It's ironic that a member of the band that evolved into Led Zeppelin ended up forming a band that trailed in Zep's wake. By the mids hard rock bands were so common that something special was needed to stand out from the crowd.
Armageddon didn't really have any such feature but they were, on this evidence, a superb group of musicians. The opening riff, however, is repeated, and again and again - in different keys and octaves, admittedly, but it does wear thin eventually.
Over-repetition does tend to be a feature of this album. The lyrics lack impact too. They sound like the result of a lot of hard work but references to 'brazen eye', 'sorrow's blindness' and 'silver trumpets' are grand without conveying anything definite. Relf at times seems to shout his way through them as if he's reading them off a sheet rather than singing. Nevertheless, this is pretty exciting rock, beautifully produced and, as ever with Repertoire, superbly packaged. I followed the Yardbirds from their inception in until their demise in and never thought anything would affect me like this album it was just as mind blowing as that first time I heard Keith Relf.
That man was amazing and in nobody's lifetime will we hear a better blues harmonica player. From the start to the finish everything about this album is faultless. I wish I had discovered it sooner. Load more international reviews. Back in the seventees I have this band on cassette and it was one of my first hardrockmemory! Listen to this now,so many years later fills me with a nostalgic feeling over this great band and their great songs!! One person found this helpful. What can you say? Absolutely cracking album.
The buzzard had to be one of the greatest album openers ever! You are missing out on a lot if you haven't heard this great one off album Truth be told Armageddon simply do not make is as a Hard Rock Band; Just because the members have spent a great deal of time around the business does not mean that they were extremely effective in that market.
The Yardbirds were effective because they were one of the first bands working within a specific portion of a market which was in its infancy. Once The Yardbirds dissolved and one portion moved on to form the Folk Rock band "Renaissance" which was quite effective and made a real impression on the Folk world changing it in some ways and allowing various new methods and instruments to be played from then on.
The other members from the Yardbirds Played in some small gigs and putzed around till this opportunity presented itself.
Then all of the remaining personnel from the Yardbirds simply moved over with some members from Renaissance thus making the former Yardbirds plus others. I believe you can hear this pressure on the first disc it shows Dazu gibt es im Booklet die Songtexte, die der Original LP entnommen wurden und einen interessanten Begleittext, den der britische Musikjournalist Chris Welch im Jahr verfasst hat.
Auch wenn ich zu jung war, als dieses Album damals heraus kam und ich es heute eigentlich nur einem Zufall zu verdanken habe, dass ich darauf aufmerksam wurde, sage ich: vergesst diese ganzen Klischees und zieht euch diese Platte rein, wenn ihr auf erdige Rockmusik steht. Diese Platte und deren Macher haben es verdient, nicht vergessen zu werden. Most of the prison scenes were filmed among the convicts in a New York City prison in Queens.
The courthouse was located at the corner of Catalpa Avenue and 64th Street in Ridgewood. Bernard Herrmann composed the soundtrack, as he had for all of Hitchcock's films from The Trouble with Harry through Marnie It is one of the most subdued scores Herrmann ever wrote, and one of the few he composed with some jazz elements, here primarily to represent Fonda's appearance as a musician in the nightclub scenes.
This was Hitchcock's final film for Warner Bros. It completed a contract commitment that had begun with two films produced for Transatlantic Pictures and released by Warner Brothers: Rope and Under Capricorn , his first two films in Technicolor. Contemporary reviews were mixed to negative, with many critics finding the realism of the film to be less compelling than the dramatic suspense that Hitchcock was known for.
Weiler of The New York Times wrote that Hitchcock "has fashioned a somber case history that merely points a finger of accusation. His principals are sincere and they enact a series of events that actually are part of New York's annals of crime but they rarely stir the emotions or make a viewer's spine tingle. Frighteningly authentic, the story generates only a modicum of drama.
Scheuer of the Los Angeles Times agreed, writing that "As drama, unhappily, it proves again that life can be more interminable than fiction. Coe of The Washington Post wrote, "Having succeeded often in making fiction seem like fact, Alfred Hitchcock in 'The Wrong Man' now manages to make fact seem like fiction.
But it is not good nor interesting fiction. Hitchcock makes a good point about the obtuseness of a police group that holds firm to the belief that everyone is guilty until proved innocent, but his story of the badgered musician is never very gripping. Some reviews were positive. Variety called the film "a gripping piece of realism" that builds to a "powerful climax, the events providing director a field day in his art of characterization and suspense. The subject of this film lies less in the unexpectedness of events than in their probability.
But, good heavens, it's as immediate and confrontational a recording as has ever been committed to vinyl. Harvey's songs of psychosis and separation suit Albini's sound down to the ground - the levels of attack and aggression he brings, especially to the drumkit, will test any vinyl set-up to the limit.
He'd have them on the floor, on the windows, on the ceiling Aside from some peerless arrangements and one gold-plated classic Teardrop , Mezzanine is notable as one of the first times a major act made an album available for download before its physical release.
On vinyl, Mezzanine is an implacable recording; one that packs iron-fisted punch from a widescreen stage. And the way the vocals from the likes of Horace Andy and Elizabeth Fraser, who are about as emotive as they come are recorded make Mezzanine a hugely affecting album when delivered by the right system.
Much of our love for this album as a test disc is down to its opening track, 15 Step , a glorious concoction of live and electronic instruments and glitches comprising some of the most delightfully complex rhythms.
For their fourth album, Daft Punk took you definitively back to the day when Studio 54 ruled and when Rogers was a superstar for the very first time. Painstakingly recorded and featuring a stellar cast of performers when you can put J. Don't shoot shotgun!

Happy to do combined postage wherever practical. I'm happy to send this overseas. Dispatch will usually be "next day". Collection in person is welcome. Under this scheme, I send the parcel to an e-bay depot in UK, and they forward it to the overseas buyer.
They have a tracked courier service, for the journey from their UK depot, to the buyer. HOWEVER, if you win several items, and pay for them all in the same payment, their system may well spot this and do combined postage. The exception is, if the items you buy weigh more than 2 kilos altogether, I need to make two parcels - there is a special cheap postage rate in UK, for parcels under 2 kilos.
Overseas customers - please DON'T request an invoice - I can't make one, and it screws-up the e-bay system. International buyers should be able to see a postage cost to their country, you may have to input your location, if your country is included in the scheme.
