The View from the Edge - Edgard Varese

The View from the Edge
Released 18/05/09. The View from the Edge is about the rolke of percussion in modern music and is a sequel to el's previous Varese edition, The Complete Works of Edgard Varese Volume 1 (ACMEM125CD). An important restoration of the composer's earliest recordings, the edition was greeted by great critical enthusiasm and sold especially healthily on export.

Varese also has a strong base in America, mostly by virtue of the association with Frank Zappa, who for years championed the work of this genius who today is regarded now as "The Father Of Electronic Music”; a man that has been described as the Leonardo da Vinci of modern music

‘Arcana’ and ‘Ionisation’ are the composer's key works; two of the most important of the twentieth century. Leonard Bernstein's historic seventeen minute Arcana with The New York Philharmonic is amongst the rarest Varese recordings The American Percussion Society's vigorous recording of ‘Ionisation’ has been inexplicably out of print for five decades

The Oliver Messiaen pieces are his first official recordings ever, dating from 1946 & 1947, and orginally released on 78 by Pathe. Both are beautifully performed by a young Yvonne Loriod.

I Ran - The Best Of
One of the most infamous 80's bands to burst out from synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish New Romantic movement into the New Wave scene, A Flock Of Seagulls come to Anagram with "I Ran (The Best Of)" (CDMGRAM 181). A Flock Of Seagulls enjoyed chart success all over the world, especially in the USA where their haircuts have became a singular expression of 80's excess and style. This hits collection, featuring singer Mike Score's newly recorded, true to the original versions of The Seagull's best loved songs, including "I Ran", "Space Age Love Song", "Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You) and "Nightmare", is guaranteed to have you banging on your air synth while it transports you back to the 80's.

Folktronic
What if computers finally began getting more Africa in them? What if folk artists started emerging who sounded more post-modern than Cornelius or Pole? What would Click Folk or Glitch Folk sound like? What would Alan Lomax have said if, in 1965, the Newport Folk Festival had been invaded by boffins and geeks playing modular Moogs? What if you could hear, today, the Country Music of the year 2049? What about the Japanese country music of 2049? What would that sound like? What if electronics had appeared in 18th Century Scotland just at the moment of the Highland Clearances? How many mountains can you fit on a Minidisc? It's what Raymond Scott, Bruce Haack or Gary Numan might have sounded like if they'd jammed their way through the back catalogue of Steeleye Span. It's Shakespeare rendered in Flash 5 by a superlucid hyperactive Japanese geek. It's those prolific medieval songwriters Trad. and Anon. finding the missing link between unicorns and Unix. It's preposterous, provocative and prescient

All Under The Leaves, The Leaves Of Life
Field Martyn not in Database

Released 16/03/09. Originally released in July 1996, All Under The Leaves, The Leaves Of Life is one of the most popular albums of this cult band’s career, including such defining moments as Monstrous Joy and the title-track. The package features a reproduction of the original artwork, plus the inclusion of two bonus tracks, Luscious Word and The Carnal & The Crane . The album received ecstatic reviews on release. For example, New York’s wonderful Big Takeover magazine would state that [Martyn] Bates has an utterly unique voice and lyrical cadence, a soaring counterpart for his and Becker s intricately woven organic and electronic instrumentation. Every song carries like a holistic message borne from high on the breeze. The refinement and grace of EIG bears no comparisons. Three Ships is simply transcendent. EIG are a treasure, as uncommon and stunning today as ever.

Complete Works
One of the founding fathers of modern music Edgard Varese, was fifty years ago experimenting with sound collage and sampling that are commonplace in today¹s popular music. Amongst the composers who claimed him to be an influence were Harrison Birtwistle, Pierre Boulez, John Cage, Morton Feldman, Luigi Nono, Karlheinz Stockhausen and a teenage Frank Zappa with his profound effect on the latter so much so that it can be heard throughout Zappa's work from the Mothers Of Invention onwards. "The Complete Works Volume 1" is the exact same record that turned Frank Zappa on! The recordings are savage and beautiful and far ahead of their time; they have never previously been released on compact disc. Our Price: £9.95

Fellini Masterpieces: La Strada / Nights of Cabiria
The artistic partnership between film director Federico Fellini and composer Nino Rota was one of the most productive and enduring in cinema history. "La Strada" and "Nights of Cabiria" announced their arrival on the scene to an awestruck Italian and international public. Both movies won academy awards for "the best foreign language film"; establishing the style that would soon reach full expression with the renowned "La Dolce Vita".

These are the original mono soundtracks recorded in 1952 and 1956 respectively: the same recordings that are used on the films and both are long out of print in any format.
