Erscheint als schwarze Triple-Vinyl-Edition. Anknüpfend an den sensationellen Erfolg der „BLUES“-Collection aus dem Frühsommer 2019, erscheint nun ein brandneues Live-Album von Gitarren-Ikone Rory Gallagher – Check Shirt Wizard – Live In ’77. Die insgesamt 20 Stücke von „Check Shirt Wizard – Live In ’77“, allesamt bislang unveröffentlicht, sind aus vier Konzerten in London, Brighton, Sheffield und Newcastle zusammengestellt, in deren Rahmen Rory Gallagher Anfang 1977 sein damals aktuelles Album „Calling Card“ erstmals live präsentierte. Aufgenommen mit den mobilen Studioeinheiten von den Stones und Jethro Tull und abgemischt in den Abbey Road Studios, vereinen diese brandneuen, von den Originaltapes gezogenen Live-Mixes aus den Gallagher-Archiven neben etlichen Highlights von „Calling Card“ und dem 1975 veröffentlichten „Against The Grain“-Album auch noch weitere Live-Favoriten des irischen Singer/Songwriters.

By the time ABBA played London’s Wembley Arena in November 1979, they had spent five years in the public spotlight – although it seems a short time now, they had lived several lives in that period. Comprising of writers Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, and the incomparable vocals of Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, ABBA shot to international fame by winning the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton UK in 1974. From that moment on, they had moved through the glam’n’glitter of Arrival, the megastardom of ABBA – The Album and the gloss and embracing of disco of Voulez-Vous. ABBA’s concerts in London at the end of the 70s – the decade that they helped to shape musically – quickly became the stuff of legend. For a group that toured only a handful of times, these shows were a pinnacle, coming near the end of their touring life. Backstage they would have admirers such as Ian Dury, Joe Strummer (‘Spanish Bombs’ from the Clash’s London Calling was said to be influenced by ABBA) and Jimmy Page dropping by to catch the hottest ticket in town. John Cleese was spotted in the auditorium. The tour had opened in Edmonton, Canada in September 1979 and was to close in Dublin on November 15th. ABBA loved being in London (Frida wore an Arsenal FC shirt one night), fighting off winter chills to deliver some of the most exhilarating performances of their career. Coinciding with the release of their Greatest Hits Volume 2 album, this was high-octane ABBA, captured forever in the legendary pictures of the event with Frida and Agnetha appearing initially in Nordic outfits that referenced ‘blue-tinged mountains and glittering waters’ before all four emerged in their blue jumpsuits, singing as if their life depended upon it. When ABBA took the stage, their experience and professionalism showed. Audiences and critics were astounded that ABBA could reproduce their studio sound live – and sometimes it swung even more. The backing musicians were Sweden’s best and most experienced. Although principally promoting their recent Voulez-Vous album, the set covered highlights throughout their career and contained a rare performance of Agnetha’s ‘I’m Still Alive’. The concert is available once again on 180gm beautiful triple vinyl, produced by Ludvig Andersson and half-speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell. 3 x 180 gram heavyweight vinyl in wide spine sleeve Half-speed mastered at Abbey Road studios by Miles Showell Includes download card Limited Edition Track Listing – 3LP LP1 - Side A 1.

Lestrade had never been arrested before, although he had often had his collar felt by unsuspecting constables. But now a woman has died in his arms in a London pea-souper, and he is not only arrested but facing the drop. Millicent Millichip, in the wrong place at the right time, is neither the first nor only in a series of murders by someone so cunning that all the brains of the Yard can’t catch them - and this despite the calling card left helpfully at every scene. In his time Lestrade has found it hard enough to follow a case, but from the condemned cell in Pentonville it is even harder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: M J Trow.

Major discoveries can still be made in the field of visual art, but few perhaps are quite so surprising as the current first retrospective devoted to the French photographer Camille Silvy at the National Portrait Gallery, London (to October 24). Here is a photographer who proves to be a giant of the age, although his enormous aesthetic and commercial success took place in London in less than a decade. His entire working career lasted only about 10 years, and initially he was no more than a curious and intelligent amateur. From 1859 to 1867, 38 Porchester Terrace, Bayswater, housed Silvy's remarkable enterprise. No fewer than 40 employees and a business partner, Auguste Renoult, were involved in a photography studio which, judging simply from 12 surviving day-books now housed at the National Portrait Gallery, produced thousands of photographs, the vast majority of which were portraits for the immensely fashionable cartes-de-visite, or calling cards, which had just been invented: when paying a call one left one's image rather than an engraved visiting card. Silvy advertised in The Times and elsewhere, copyrighted many of his images and did mail order as well as selling through London's largest photographic agency. The business was exceptionally productive, merging art with small factory methods. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dana Brewer Harris.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father's island - and the secrets she left behind. Now back in London, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau's horrific legacy - though someone, or something, hasn't forgotten her. As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three claw-like slashes, Juliet fears one of her father's creations may have also made it off the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again. As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer - Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.
