Musical Artist cd reviews and discography

Yes hit their peak with Close to the Edge album in 1973. Their live album YesSongs is primarily from that tour and includes live renditions of that whole album. In addition, it has most of the essential tracks from their other two classic albums, The Yes Album, and Fragile.  

While the version of the songs on Yessongs are similar in structure to their studio counterparts, these versions are buzzing with energy and are worth repeating if you have the studio versions. Speaking of studio version of Yes material, they began re- issuing their catalog in re-mastered format with bonus tracks. This music is so good that having both the studio and early live versions will give one many satisfying listening experiences.

The September 27, 2005, release of "Prairie Wind," which was recorded earlier this year in Nashville. In addition to a single compact disc, the release will also be available in a special edition that includes the
CD along with a DVD in High Resolution DVD Stereo, with filmed content of the entire recording of the album. 

The incredible set of songs is being described as the last installment in a trilogy of albums that include Harvest and Harvest Moon, and features the first single, "The Painter," along with "No Wonder," "Falling Off The Face Of The Earth," "Far From Home," "It's A Dream," "Prairie Wind," "Here For You," "This Old Guitar," "He Was The King" and "When God Made Me." 

Young is joined on the album by keyboardist Spooner Oldham, pedal-steel guitarist Ben Keith, drummer Chad Cromwell, percussionist Karl Himmel, bassist Rick Rosas and vocalist Emmylou Harris, along with the Fisk University Jubilee Singers and other guests.

Back before CD box sets tracing an artists career became trendy, Neil Young had an outstanding release in the same manner entitled Decade. Previously, a three album set, re-issued on two discs. While certainly not a comprehensive look at Young's career, it serves as a strong foundation of a collection of his first decade (his best). It  includes some Buffalo Springfield and CSN&Y material, as well as music from his solo albums. 

His two albums with Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Deja Vu and Four Way Street are classics.

Frank Zappa 
Musical Artist cd reviews and discography

Frank Zappa has a diverse mixture of music to his credit. We have heard a good amount of it. Truly the man is a musical genius. Though, with such a wide range of different material, I found myself sifting through too much I don't like to find the invaluable treasures. 

We'll eventually add more Zappa content. Till then, we'd like to suggest an under rated album. Excluding the material that is instrumental like Shut and Play Your Guitar and Guitar, one of Zappa's strongest guitar albums, within the context of songs, is Zoot Allures. Zappa's rather expensive vault series' first edition entitled OZ, recorded 1/20/76 is worth seeking, especially if Amazon has a reasonably priced used copy.

Musical Artist cd reviews and discography

ZZ Top is an excellent band. We tend to think of them as two distinct bands; the pre-MTV and the post-MTV periods. We prefer their early material where they are an excellent trio that focused on a no frills approach of blues inspired music. If you are only familiar with their latter day radio hits, you're missing their best material. 

Finally starting in 2003 some of ZZ Top's early material was re-issued with good mixes. This begin with their box-set,
