Nightclubbing by Grace Jones( Recording )

1 edition published in 1981 in Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a career of myriad highlights 'Nightclubbing' remains the high water mark of Grace Jones's imperial years with Island Records. It is indisputably the album on which her musical legacy rests, and rightly considered one of the greatest albums of all time. A sophisticated mêlée of sound, blending post-punk cool with a hot Caribbean vibe and a catwalk Studio 54 sensibility, it's a perfect example of artist and musicians working in complete accord. It contains the all-time Grace classics in 'Pull Up To The Bumper', 'Walking In The Rain', 'Demolition Man' (written by Sting) and of course the Bowie / Iggy Pop-penned title track. There is magic in its every groove

Bob Marley & the Wailers - Exodus Exil 1977 - mit dem Originalalbum auf CD. Sonderausgabe zum 30. Jahrestag( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Der Reggaemusiker Bob Marley ist weltweit einer der wichtigsten Vertreter aus dem Bereich Rock & Pop. Das 1977 erschienene Album "Exodus" stellt einen Höhepunkt in seinem Schaffen dar. 30 Jahre später erschien dieser Bildband, der durch etliche Textbeiträge von Marleys Weggefährten ergänzt wird und die turbulenten Ereignisse im Jahr 1977 in Jamaika und in Marleys Leben (u.a. Attentatsversuch) schildert. Enthalten ist außerdem die Schallplatte "Exodus" als CD. Das sehr attraktive Buch und die CD könnten in ÖB sicher auch getrennt eingearbeitet werden und dadurch mehr Ausleihen bringen. Insgesamt eine schöne, aber nicht notwendige Ergänzung von wichtigeren Titeln, u.a. "Bob Marley - catch a fire" von T. White (BA 8/93). (3)
