Che Guevara - Various. CD. A musical tribute to the most iconic revolutionary figure of our time, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death in 1967. The Argentine-born Marxist revolutionary, political figure, and leader of Cuban and internationalist guerrillas, had travelled throughout South America while a medicine student. His experiences and observations during these trips led him to the conclusion that the region's socio-economic inequalities could only be remedied by revolution, prompting him to intensify his study of Marxism and travel to Guatemala to learn about the reforms being implemented there. This compilation by Milan Records gathers artists and songs that marked the revolutionary battles at the time of Che Guevara: Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Santana, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Victor Jara, Raul Seixa, Violeta Parra, Isabel Parra, Gato Barbieri, Tim Maia and many more like Irakere, Illapu et Inti Illimani.. Taken by Roger Pic, the album cover shows an extremely rare colour picture of Che.

Changing Of The Guard - Various. CD. The Changing of the Guard" is a unique music and dialogue sound collage of Swinging London in 1968; a time of exciting developments in all the artistic fields and a time when England set cultural standards that the world is still trying to emulate. Protagonists central to the scene are included here: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones discussing revolution; his manager Andrew Loog Oldham explaining business philosophy; the young Michael Caine debating morals in the context of the permissive society; Julie Christie on fame and Lee Marvin on Mini cars and mini skirts! The dialogue is edited against brilliant historic London pop of the period: big hits such as The Small Face's 'Itchychoo Park' and 'Here Come The Nice', Chris Farlowe's memorable number one 'Out of Time', 'If Paradise is Half as Nice' by The Amen Corner and mercurial psychedelia; The Marquis of Kensington, Fleur De Lys, Duncan Browne, Billy Nicholls and the first line up of Humble Pie featuring Steve Marriott and "the Face Of 1968" - Peter Frampton. Special mention too for an early song from Vashti!

Welsh Rare Beat Vol 2 - Various. CD. Gruff Rhys joins the Andy Votel, Dom Thomas and the Finders Keepers team once again to produce this, the second instalment in our critically acclaimed and best-selling Welsh Rare Beat series. Derived from Dyfed bands with added friends from further a field in the Swansea valleys, Cardiff and Flint in the north, this is a speakers to sing and express themselves in their mother tongue, part of a wider international youthquake, others were singing from the heart, paying the bills and just happened to live in Wales during this cultural crossroad. Here for your enjoyment are songs mostly about the sky, flying, seagulls, clouds and ghosts. But also songs that deal in political activism, The Mabinogi, or issues of Welsh identity. Girl group boy meets girl songs, parodies of boy meets girls songs, Welsh language covers of English and American hits of the day sung in a traditional Welsh style counteracted by traditional Welsh folk songs played in contemporary Anglo-American styles.

All My Loving - Various. DVD. With abnormal narrative and reserved diction, Palmer plays a psychotherapist rather than journalist, allowing for an uncanny, introspective look into the souls of Hendrix, Frank Zappa, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd and Pete Townshend to name a few. McCartney and Jimi’s levity brighten up the screen while Zappa and Townshend balance out the film with gravity and angst. In all, this film’s delivery was perfect, forcing audiences to do nothing but shut the hell up and listen.Bonus features include a comprehensive sit down, tell all interview with Tony Palmer, tying a knot in any loose ends you may encounter during the film.
