Antonello Venditti è nato a Roma l'8 marzo 1949.
Appena adolescente, compone due delle sue canzoni più famose, Roma capoccia e Sora Rosa. L'occasione di farle ascoltare in pubblico arriva alla fine degli anni sessanta con la partecipazione alle attività del celebre locale romano Folkstudio, assai importante per la formazione dei giovani autori e la crescita musicale della città (vi suonò anche Bob Dylan). In questo locale conosce molti altri cantautori e musicisti tra cui Francesco De Gregori e Rino Gaetano.
È proprio con De Gregori e la collaborazione di Giorgio Lo Cascio ed Ernesto Bassignano che Antonello comincia ad esibirsi al Folkstudio in uno spazio del programma denominato "I giovani del folk".
“Pensar en nada” is the fifth studio album by the Argentine singer-songwriter León Gieco.
“Vivencia” is the disc that follows “Mi Cuarto” LP. I read somewhere in the network that after that LP (Mi Cuarto), they did not get better jobs … Hmmm, debatable.
“El Fantasma De Canterville” is the third album of study of the Argentine singer-songwriter León Gieco. It was released in 1976 by the label Music Hall.
David Chesky, born in Miami in 1956, settled in New York City in the 1970s and now identifies himself as an "urban orchestral composer." His Urban Concertos, of which he has written nearly a dozen, constitute his most substantial output. In the program notes for this recording of three of his concertos, he wrote, "Perhaps one can say my style is neo-impressionist. But I do not live on some quaint idyllic country farm, I live in the city that never sleeps! It is a hard-driving concrete jungle that pulsates around the clock." "Pulsating" is an apt descriptor for Chesky's music, which is notable for its restlessly high energy and rhythmic propulsiveness.
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Although admittedly a posthumous release, I was very surprised at the rather dismissive tenor of many of the reviews of this album to date. Hopefully this record will be reappraised soon as being a release worthy of anyone's consideration as I feel it does enhance an already rich legacy left behind by this very fine and innovative band. (So what if Charisma wanted to ride the slipstream of the lucrative ELP juggernaut?)
Essential: A masterpiece of psych-rock music collection.
Vanilla Fudge are a pioneering psychedelic band with a superb lineup and are famous for psyching up well known cover versions. Their debut albums features some of their best and most popular material such as the stunning' You Keep Me Hanging On', 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'She's Not There'.
