This double CD comprises classical source music featured in many well-known and memorable films. Amongst the thirty-three pieces of music, are some very well known tunes, such as the Andante from Mozart Piano Concerto No.21 as featured in Elvira Madigan, Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major from Ordinary People, and the Air from Bach’s Suite No. 3 from the film Seven
My personal favourite was Puccini’s ‘O mio babbino caro’ from his opera Gianni Schicchi from the film ‘A Room with a View’. This piece conjures up romantic pictures of Florence in your mind. It also makes you think of the sultry hot days of summer. I remember that sensational scene in the film when Helena Bonham-Carter has the kiss with Julian Sands in the countryside. For that scene another Puccini aria was used, from his opera, La Rondine so very effectively. Alas that aria is not included in this compilation. I also liked John Barry’s John Dunbar theme from the film Dances with Wolves starring Kevin Costner. The music reminds you of the epic film in which man comes to one with nature and animals.
Not being a classical music lover, some of the pieces I did find a bit heavy, although, generally, I liked both CDs – especially CD 1. On CD 2, I enjoyed the Tchaikovsky Swan Lake music from the film Billy Elliot used in the scene at the end of the film in which Billy dances the lead part and his father watches him proudly. I also enjoyed the extremely difficult and amazing Rachmaninov Prelude in C sharp minor from Shine and the Offenbach’s Barcarolle from Life is Beautiful.
Altogether, this double CD was pleasurable to listen to and a nostalgic reminder of the many films featured in it.

ΔΟΜΝΑ ΣΑΜΙΟΥ - ΤΑ ΑΠΟΚΡΙΑΤΙΚΑ

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.

DIRE STRAITS BROTHERS IN ARMS

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.
