Yet although romantic, sensual songs were his main claim to fame, they alone weren't the full extent of his vision.
This excellent greatest-hits package -- the definitive track version -- is the best way to get most of your favorites in one place.

This is not just any Greatest Hits package -- it's the very first greatest hits album by any artist! This collection of the golden-voiced Mathis's biggest hits flows seamlessly, and while it only flows for half an hour, it's the dreamiest 30 minutes you and your special friend will ever spend. The proof of this LP's power to move hearts lies in the raw stats: this collection stayed on the charts for a full decade after its release. Van the Man is known as a romantic soul, and songs like "Moondance" are still proving it every day, but this -- his first proper solo album -- remains a stunning masterpiece of hyper-romantic impressionism.
Played like folk, moaned like the blues, orchestrated like classical and accompanied like jazz, every song starts off deceptively gentle and then spurs Van on to greater and greater heights of romantic ecstasy. Sort of like ther isn't a big market for 78 RPM records of 's foxtrots these days. Neil Young. I need to get out and see Neil in concert again before he kicks the bucket.

With Bill Kreutzmann masterfully drumming alone following the resignation of Mickey Hart, and augmented the previous fall by Keith Godchaux's elegant piano, the Dead leaned toward the pared-down sound they'd perfected on their previous studio albums, Workingman's Dead and American Beauty. The Dead's best-selling live album also marked the group's final recording with singer-keyboardist Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, who died the following year.
These nine songs from the iconic, guitar-charring show have appeared in many editions, first as the incomplete Historic Performances Recorded at the Monterey International Pop Festivala wonderfully strange split album which contained about half LP the Jimi Hendrix Experience's set and all of Otis Redding's. Joe Gross. The concept of Ya-Ya's was just to document their brilliant sound: "It's about as un-tampered with as possible," Keith Richards said.
Live, every part of the band was louder and meaner; never before had drummer Charlie Watts sounded so sure of himself.
Bassist Bill Wyman to Goldmine : "The Stones were a better live band then any other band at that time…. Me and Charlie were really always on the ball, always straight, always together and had it down.
If we had our shit together we got it right. The concert took place six years after the rock icon's career plummeted after the public learned he had married his year-old cousin, but at age 28, Lewis was at a musical peak.
Kory Grow. The four nights in November, that John Coltrane and various lineups of his group were recorded at a Manhattan club yielded a lot more music than the three tracks here — most of his subsequent album, Impressionswas drawn from those gigs, too.
But Live! At the Village Vanguard is an argument as much as it is an album. At the time, the jazz world was bitterly divided over whether what John Coltrane's extended, discursive soloing was brilliant innovation or, as one review called the album, "musical nonsense…being peddled in the name of jazz.
At the Village Vanguard puts it more bluntly: We are the train to the future, and you'd better chase us. Douglas Wolk. On this January night inperforming for a black audience in a packed Miami club, he let his raw, soulful side break free "don't fight it," he tells the audience, "we're gonna feel it".

Originally released solely in Japan, the label wisely released it in America after radio stations began playing the live version of "I Want You to Want Me" and import copies began selling at hugely inflated prices.
Bob Dylan going electric at Newport's sister festival gets all the lore, but Muddy Waters beat him to the plugged-in punch by five years. At the height of the folk revival, the Chicago electric-blues icon brought an amped-up, scarifying-ly powerful combo into Newport Jazz Festival.
Between Waters' bull-roar voice, stinging guitar and swinging band, nobody could stand still, not even Muddy — during "I've Got My Mojo Working," he left the mike long enough to do a twirl with harmonica player James Cotton as the crowd shrieked.
For a finale, poet Langston Hughes wrote "Goodbye Newport Blues" on the spot, and pianist Otis Spann sang it because Waters was too worn out from "Mojo" to sing anything further. At Newport quickly became a guidebook for young blues-rock enthusiasts: Keith Richards and Mick Jagger were among those paying close attention.
It's like 60 Minutes on acid. The audience would keep coming back. Strip away the fuzz and bluster and Nirvana were nothing but raw emotion. Album) a taping of MTV's Unplugged series, they gave the most legendary performance of their brief career, stripping down deep cuts and select covers to acoustic guitars, softly played drums and Kurt Cobain's gravelly, heartbreaking voice.

You're a liar! In fact, he opened the show, like every show on that tour, with an acoustic set.

It's quaint to think of now, but the opening command — "Kick out the jams, motherfuckers! When they sent back the stock and refused to stock either version, the band had an even more choice message to them in a series of national ads: "Fuck Hudson's! Muscular takes on white-knuckle glam classics LP "Strutter" and "Cold Gin" reveal just how much sweat seeped into the band members' makeup on any given night.
Not only has Alive! Maura Johnston. Recorded that night, King's first live album would become an entry point for many white listeners, and blues aficionados still speak of it with awe — Eric Clapton was rumored to spin Live at the Regal to prep for his shows. Newcomers encountered an urbane but never slick professional, backed by a killer horn section, who belted each number with class and grit, all the better to showcase the jazzy yet terse yet economical solos he coaxed from his beloved black Gibson, "Lucille.
The Who spent most of and on the road, playing their rock opera, Tommyas the centerpiece of epic concerts. They'd become a fearsomely powerful live band, as fluid as they were brutal: four wizards at separate corners of the stage, raising a golden demon together.
