This is a Christmas set which really stands out from the pack. For one thing the material is great, and on top of that, it has great sound quality...finish it off with some inspired cover art, and it's a can't-miss package. All of the Armstrong tracks are fabulous, and feature a variety of settings, such as Gordon Jenkins' lush snowscapes for White Christmas & Winter Wonderland, and Benny Carter's swinging orchestra on Christmas in New Orleans. 'Zat You, Santa Claus? with The Commanders is a hoot, with a paranoid Louis locked up in his Christmas cabin, wondering what all those funny noises are outside (It's interesting to note that this "'Zat You" doesn't have any whistle or wind overdubs as it does on Laserlight's Christmas Through The Years). Louis also delivers an infectious Christmas Night In Harlem, and by the time he blows some exuberant trumpet on Cool Yule, feelings of holiday joy will have completely overtaken you. Some of these tunes by Louis are actually pretty rare, so it's great to have them here in good sound quality.
Other goodies featured include a bluesy Silent Night by Dinah Washington, a live The Christmas Song by Mel Torme (who co-authored it), and a rare and hypnotic Peggy Lee tune called It's Christmas Time Again. Lionel Hampton brings the good vibes on the blues number Merry Christmas, Baby, Eartha Kitt signs in with her amusing Santa Baby, and Duke Ellington righteously jazzes up Jingle Bells. Lena Horne has it "on good authority" that Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, and Louis Jordan turns in a bluesy and soulful May Everyday Be Christmas.
My review is over now, but before I get into the nog, I'd like to share with you my recipe for the ultimate Louis Armstrong Yuletide disc. Yes, there is no complete Satchmo Christmas set, but if you love Louis like me, you'll want to make one, and here's how; Take the six Satchmo tunes from this disc, and add in Santa Claus Blues, The Night Before Christmas, and the live masterpiece Baby, It's Cold Outside from the Christmas Through The Years disc (Laserlight). Now get your hands on the Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald duet I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm. Finally, pick up the remastered version of Louis Armstrong & Friends, which features the bonus track Here Is My Heart For Christmas. Mix these up in a good ol' good way, and be sure, of course, to put The Night Before Christmas at the end. Congratulations, daddy, you are now the proud owner of the ultimate Louis Armstrong Christmas set! If you play this mix only in December like a good little boy or girl, Dipper Claus just might leave a shiny new trumpet in your stocking! Happy holidays, pops.

24 αθυρόστομα τραγούδια της Αποκριάς.
Η πιο διάσημη έκδοση του Συλλόγου. Τα «ανίερα-ιερά» τραγούδια της Αποκριάς με την ιερή τους αθυροστομία ετάραξαν τα νερά των σεμνότυφων καπηλευτών της παράδοσης. Ο διπλός δίσκος με τα είκοσι τέσσερα κομμάτια συνοδεύεται από εκτενή κείμενα που αναλύουν το παγανιστικό τελετουργικό πλαίσιο εντός του οποίου λέγονται τα τραγούδια, τραγούδια συνδεδεμένα με συγκεκριμένη εποχή του κοσμικού χρόνου και με ρόλο ιερό κατά τις αντιλήψεις των ανθρώπων της παραδοσιακής αγροτικής κοινωνίας. Παράλληλη έκδοση σε LP και CD.

Εισαγωγικό σημείωμα
Το βέβηλο και το άσεμνο είναι μια πτυχή του λαϊκού μας πολιτισμού που ελάχιστα έχει ανιχνευθεί και μελετηθεί, μια που "επί δεκαετίες, ίσως και αιώνες -όπως παρατηρεί ο καθηγητής Μ. Μερακλής- η υποκριτικά επίπεδη αστική ηθική" και σεμνοτυφία των διανοούμενων συλλογέων την αποσιώπησε και την αγνόησε, παραποιώντας την αλήθεια κάποιων συγκεκριμένων πολιτισμικών φαινομένων. Στην κάλυψη αυτού του κενού θέλει να συμβάλει ο Σύλ…


Artist: Dire Straits Album: Brothers In Arms (20th Anniversary Edition) Label: Warner Bros. Records Catalogue #: 49377-2 Format: MP3@320 kbps Sound Quality: HIGH Size: 124,13 MB Type: Album Country: USA Release Date: 2005 Original Release Date: 1985 Language: English Time: 55:13 Genre: Pop/Rock Styles: Classic Rock, Rock & Roll, Album Rock, Contemporary Pop/Rock
Album Review: Brothers in Arms is the fifth studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released in 1985. The first half of the album is a development of their unique brand of arena rock which had evolved in their music since the 1980 album Making Movies, while the second half consists of more folk-influenced material. The whole album maintains the original Dire Straits' bluesy and laid back guitar-based sound whilst retaining a more lavish and bombastic production and overall sound. It is the band's best-selling album, and one of the top 10 best-selling albums in UK music history.
