Captain Beefheart - Sun Zoom Spark 1970 - 72 [Box Set] (2014)
4 CD | Release: 2014 | MP3 320kbps | 44.1 Khz | Joint-Stereo | 367 MB
Genre: Rock

Finally! As of 2014, Lick My Decals Off, Baby, The Spotlight Kid, and Clear Spot had needed a proper remastering treatment for quite some time when Rhino came to the rescue, remastering all three in one fell swoop as Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972. As if that werenâ?™t enough for fans, they added an entire bonus disc of outtakes and alternates as well. The albums themselves are fairly different from each other. Lick My Decals followed directly after Trout Mask Replica and is the closest there is to Trout Maskâ?™s sonic assault. On the other side, Clear Spot‘s horn charts, backup singers, and Ted Templeman production were probably catchy enough for actual radio success (well, maybe in a better world). The Spotlight Kid is pitched somewhere in between. However, itâ?™s all prime Beefheart. The band is always in sync, Donâ?™s voice sounds great (as does his harmonica playing), and itâ?™s all got that unique rhythmic sense. The bonus material doesnâ?™t disappoint either. Itâ?™s all from the Clear Spot and Spotlight Kid sessions and sounds fantastic. The alternates of songs that were on the albums are interesting but not revelatory, but hearing these early versions of songs that appeared on later albums is pretty fascinating. This version of “Harry Irene” predates both the Shiny Beast version and the Bat Chain Puller version. The two takes of “Dirty Blue Gene” are quite interesting as well, not just because theyâ?™re significantly different than the version that ended up on Doc at the Radar Station but also because theyâ?™re significantly different from each other (the third take is quite a bit more aggressive, with a really cool guitar tone at the end). “Pompadour Swamp” is a great guitar instrumental that ended up as “Suction Prints.” Itâ?™s hard to believe some of these cuts were left off originally, but albums were shorter back in the day. They make this set pretty close to essential for longtime fans (as if the fantastic sound werenâ?™t enough).

Jefferson Starship - Soiled Dove (2014)
14 Tracks | Release: 2014 | MP3 320kbps | 44.1 Khz | Joint-Stereo | 182 MB
Genre: Rock

Jefferson Starship is an American rock band formed in the early 1970s by several members of the former psychedelic rock group Jefferson Airplane. The band has undergone several major changes in personnel and genres through the years while retaining the same Jefferson Starship name. The current Jefferson Starship, led by co-founder Paul Kantner, more closely resembles its original mix of psychedelic and electric folk music than the pop-driven tunes it was widely known for in the early to mid-1980s. It is not to be confused with Starship, a spin-off of the group featuring former co-lead singer Mickey Thomas that also periodically tours.

The Carpenters - The Singles 1969-73 (2014) [SHM Universal Music Japan UICY40046 FLAC]
12 Tracks | Release: 2014 | FLAC | 44.1 Khz | Joint-Stereo | 413 MB
Genre: Rock

There's a certain inherent sadness listening to this concise 12-song collection of the Carpenters' early hits, especially as it opens with "We've Only Just Begun," with its hopeful, dreamy lyrics -- for it was never supposed to be definitive, just the first of at least two such collections. But changes in the public's taste and a slackening (though never a disappearance) of hits for the duo, and Karen Carpenter's death in 1983, made this the first and only real mass choice for a Carpenters collection. Ten of the duo's dozen Top Ten hits are present, from "Close to You" to "Top of the World," with their gorgeous and original slow ballad interpretation of "Ticket to Ride" and their cover of Carole King's "It's Going to Take Some Time" thrown in to offer a slightly wider perspective. Listening to this material, it's easy to accuse the Carpenters of being hopelessly retro even in their own time -- bear in mind that "We've Only Just Begun" and "Superstar" being contemporaneous with the Allman Brothers' At Fillmore East and Eat a Peach and you get the idea. But the lush melodies brought out in Richard Carpenter's arrangements and Karen's singing are justification in themselves.
