Chopin Piano Music (The VoxBox Edition)

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Album Review:

The Polish piano virtuoso and composer Frédéric François Chopin is considered by many as one of musics immortals in part to his ability to show such passion in his compositions. Most of Chopin’s works were written for piano solos and Chopin Piano Music (The VoxBox Edition) contains 141 of these works as performed by Abbey Simon, Walter Klien, Ivan Moravec, Grant Johannesen & Michael Ponti. $0.99 is a steal for 11 hours of music of this caliber so get it before the price rises.

Finally Home by Blue Sky Riders

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Album Review:

What do you get when you combine the singing/songwriting skills of Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman & Gary Burr? Finally Home, one of the best albums this year. The music trio formed Blue Sky Riders and has song writing in their blood which is in full display on the 15 track debut from their own label 3Dream Records. Combining pop, rock, country and a little folk, Blue Sky Riders created an instant classic with songs that will become favorites.

Never Going Back To OK
by The Afters

Three weeks ago, we featured the album Light Up the Sky by The Afters and later realized that two of their other releases were also on sale for $3.99. I Wish We All Could Win & Never Going Back To OK are the two albums preceding Light Up the Sky from the popular Dallas Christian band. A number of fans enjoy their music because it doesn’t come across as preachy and features both fast and slow tempo songs.

Peace of Mind (Deluxe) by Rebelution

Album Review:

As one of the best Reggae Fusion band today, Rebelution’s latest release Peace of Mind is one of the featured $3.99 albums from Californian bands and Peace of Mind is available as a Deluxe version containing 3 discs worth of music. I like what they have done with their deluxe album by including the main release tracks as both Acoustic and Dub, those that love the album have more ways to enjoy it. The album has received great reviews and is an extraordinary value for a limited time from the little Reggae from Santa Barbara, California.

The Very Best Of Solomon Burke by Solomon Burke

Album Review:

Solomon Burke has been called by a number of names including: “The King of Rock ‘N Soul”, “The Bishop of Soul”, “King Solomon”, “The Wonder Boy preacher”, and “Lord Solomon” in part part due to his role in establishing Soul music in the 1960s. Because his popularity as a mid chart topper was minimal when compared with James Brown, Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, Burke has been described as the genre’s “most unfairly overlooked singer”. If you are not familiar with his work, now is a great time to pick up a nice collection of some of his best on The Very Best Of Solomon Burke for under $3.00 to add to your Soul music library.

Classical Music for Learning: Great Masterpieces to Improve Studying and Mental Focus by Various artists

Album Review:

It may be a mouth full, but it is also a great deal at just the right time. Classical Music for Learning: Great Masterpieces to Improve Studying and Mental Focus contains over an hour and a half of classical pieces to help any of you students out there study and focus on your finals that are coming up. This claim has not been substantiated, but regardless, 30 tracks for a buck is a great deal in my book.
