Scott Walker - 30 Century Man explores Scott’s music and career, from his early days as a jobbing bass player on the Sunset Strip, to mega-stardom in Britain’s swinging 60’s pop scene, and finally to his transformation into a composer of true genius; an uncompromising and serious musician working at the peak of his powers. The filmmakers of Scott Walker - 30 Century Man have been granted unprecedented access to Scott and his musical process, the first such time the famously reclusive genius has allowed this level of contact with a film crew.

Every unforgettable exploit of world-renowned, globetrotting hero Indiana Jones is featured with pristine picture and sound in Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures. The cinematic classic that started it all--Raiders of the Lost Ark--has been meticulously restored under the supervision of director Steven Spielberg and sound designer Ben Burtt. Additionally, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade have both been remastered alongside 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull making this landmark release the first time all four films in the epic and award-winning franchise have been available together in sparkling high definition. In addition to all of Indy’s thrilling adventures, the set includes seven hours of fascinating documentaries, featurettes and interviews with cast members and filmmakers. This comprehensive collection of behind-the-scenes bonus features is augmented by a brand new two-part documentary entitled “On Set with Raiders of the Lost Ark – From Jungle to Desert and From Adventure to Legend.” Featuring nearly an hour of rarely seen footage from the set of the film and archival interviews with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford, these captivating pieces transports fans back to where the legend began. Raiders of the Lost Ark has been painstakingly restored with careful attention to preserving the original look, sound and feel of the iconic film. The original negative was scanned at 4K and then examined frame-by-frame so that any damage could be repaired. The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt’s original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981. New stereo surrounds were created using the original music tracks and original effects recorded in stereo but used previously only in mono. In addition, the sub bass was redone entirely up to modern specifications and care was taken to improve dialogue and correct small technical flaws to create the most complete and highest quality version of the sound possible while retaining the director’s vision.

Alex Ross’s award-winning international best seller, The Rest Is Noise, has become a contemporary classic, establishing him as one of our most popular and acclaimed cultural historians. Listen to This, which takes its title from a beloved 2004 essay in which Ross described his late-blooming discovery of pop music, showcases the best of Ross’s writing from more than a decade at The New Yorker. These pieces, dedicated to classical and popular artists alike, are at once erudite and lively. In a previously unpublished essay, Ross brilliantly retells hundreds of years of music history - from Renaissance dances to Led Zeppelin - through a few iconic bass lines of celebration and lament. He vibrantly sketches canonical composers such as Schubert, Verdi, and Brahms; gives us in-depth interviews with modern pop masters, such as Björk and Radiohead; and introduces us to music students at a Newark high school and to indie-rock hipsters in Beijing. Whether his subject is Mozart or Bob Dylan, Ross shows how music expresses the full complexity of the human condition. Witty, passionate, and brimming with insight, Listen to This teaches us how to listen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Ross.

Der BBC-Moderator Jools Holland ("Later with Jools Holland") hält ihn für "einen der größten Blueser unserer Zeit", das britische Blues Magazine bezeichnet ihn als "besten R&B-Sänger und -Gitarristen im Vereinigten Königreich", und für Craig Charles von BBC 6 Music klingt der Mann, als habe er "seine Stimmbänder während der letzten zehn Jahre in Terpentin getränkt". Alles richtig. Die Rede ist von Big Boy Bloater. "Luxury Hobo" ist das dritte Album, das Bloater mit seiner Band The Limits aufgenommen hat, und sein Einstand bei der Mascot Label Group - ein furioser Auftakt dort, so viel wird gleich beim ersten Durchlauf klar. Die Geschichte dieses Quartetts ist mit Steven Oats am Bass, Dan Edwards an den Keyboards und Matt Cowley an den Drums noch vergleichsweise jung, Big Boy Bloater selbst aber alles andere als ein unbeschriebenes Blatt: Der 45-jährige Südengländer macht von jungen Jahren an Musik und zeigt sich schon lange als nahezu omnipräsentes Multitalent. Mit verschiedenen eigenen Gruppen und auch solo war und ist er bei vielen wichtigen Festivals in Europa und den USA zu Hause - so beim Latitude, Secret Garden Party, dem Hop Farm Festival, dem BluesFest, The Great British R&B Festival, bei Burnley Blues und Viva Las Vegas, um nur einige zu nennen. Immer und überall beeindruckt er mit energiegeladen Gigs, meisterlichem Gitarrenspiel und seiner außergewöhnlich markanten, irgendwo zwischen Howlin' Wolf und Tom Waits einzuordnenden Stimmlage, die ihm bei den UK Blues Awards 2014 eine Nominierung in der Kategorie "Sänger des Jahres" einbrachte. Im Studio und als Sessionmusiker arbeitete Bloater mit Größen wie Wanda Jackson, Imelda May, Paloma Faith und Paul McCartney zusammen. Und beim britischen Internetsender Team Rock Radio präsentiert er als Gastgeber und Moderator jeden Dienstag seine "The Blues Magazine Show" mit exklusiven Interviews, Livesessions und dem Besten aus Delta Blues, Roots Music, R&B und zeitgenössischem Bluesrock. Big Boy Bloater und seine Männer gehen auf ihrem dritten Werk mit mächtig Druck zu Werke, das Album dampft und rockt noch expressiver als seine Vorgänger - von Anfang an und beinahe ausnahmslos. "Man verpasst mir zwar immer ein Blues-Etikett, aber ich sehe mich gar nicht als Bluesman im engeren Sinne", sagt Bloater. "Ich mag zum Beispiel auch dieses Pub-R&B-Ding der 1970er-Jahre sehr, außerdem habe ich seinerzeit auch gerne Mott the Hoople und T.Rex gehört. Von alldem wollte ich auf 'Luxury Hobo' etwas mit unterbringen. Deshalb hatte ich beim Schreiben diesmal reichlich Rock 'n' Roll im Kopf." Diese Operation ist auf jeden Fall gelungen - man hört es deutlich, und das Ganze macht verdammt viel Spaß.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Gary John Jarman is a British multi-instrumentalist, best known for being bassist and singer in the Wakefield music group The Cribs. The band consists of his two brothers, Ryan (his identical twin) and Ross (youngest sibling), and ex-The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who joined the group in 2008. Gary is the most political member of The Cribs, and can regularly be heard in interviews railing against inequality and misogyny in the music industry. This could be attributed to the fact that he spent a few years prior to the band's success participating as part of the committee that put on the UK's first "Ladyfest" in London, and also numerous fundraisers around this time. He has also been seen with various other bands, such as Quasi in which his wife Joanna Bolme plays bass, Comet Gain, and Jeffrey Lewis - guesting as a drummer all times
