Данный сет включает в себя 8 оригинальных альбомов - с "Bob Dylan (1962)" и до "John Wesley Harding (1968). Это ремастеринги, выпушенные в 2010 году. Звучание монофоническое, всё так, как было задумано в шестидесятых. Сет эксклюзивный, выпущено всего 5 000 штук. Издание включает в себя буклет с множеством фотографий и дополнительной информацией на английском и японском языках.

Bob Dylan, он же Элстон Ганнн (Elston Gunnn), он же Blind Boy Grunt, он же Боб Лэнди (Bob Landy), он же Роберт Милквуд Томас (Robert Milkwood Thomas), он же Счастливчик Уилбери (Lucky Wilbury), он же Бу Уилбери (Boo Wilbury), он же Джек Фрост (Jack Frost), урожденный Роберт Аллен Циммерман - американский автор-исполнитель песен, поэт, художник, киноактер. Является культовой фигурой в популярной музыке на протяжении пяти десятилетий. Многие его песни, такие как «Blowin' in the Wind» и «The Times They Are a-Changin'», стали гимнами для движения гражданских прав и антивоенного движения в США.
По данным опроса журнала Rolling Stone — является второй (после The Beatles) по значимости фигурой в истории рок-музыки. Бабушка и дедушка тов. Цимермана, между прочим, эмигрировали в США из Одессы в 1905, когда там были погромы.
"Страх и ненависть в Лас-Вегасе" если кто не знает, повсящены именно Бобу Дилану, а фильм «Достучаться до небес» получил название в честь одноимённой песни Боба Дилана.


B|B|C Review
Who on earth would be interested in a set collecting the mono mixes of Bob Dylan’s first eight albums? 
Well, as the success of  The Beatles’ similar venture The Beatles in Mono demonstrates, quite a lot of people. And with good reason. Dylan – like the Fab Four and all of their contemporaries – didn't start treating stereo mixes as anything other than a sop to an elite part of the record buying market until the end of the 1960s. Mono mixes were supervised and approved by the artist, stereo mixes done as an afterthought by third parties. The albums Bob Dylan (1962) through John Wesley Harding (1967), then, are being presented here in the way the artist intended you to hear them. As Dylan’s mono albums were deleted unusually quickly, this is the first opportunity to experience such ‘director’s cuts’ for four decades.
It’s the early, acoustic albums that benefit most: stereo versions brutally divided up the elements of voice, guitar and harmonica on the debut, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, The Times They Are a-Changin’ and Another Side of Bob Dylan. As for the electric material, Blonde on Blonde’s epic Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands sounds significantly sweeter and more focused in mono, while Bringing It All Back Home sounds bolder and punchier throughout, with the excellence of the bass-playing on It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue particularly brought into focus. However, surprisingly it is not all one-way traffic, as illustrated by Like a Rolling Stone, which here sounds dismayingly sterile compared to the powerful stereo mix that has become far more familiar down the years. Meanwhile, the mono mixes on Stone’s parent album Highway 61 Revisited are sometimes shorter by half a minute – not a good thing when we’re talking about one of history’s all-time classics. John Wesley Harding sounds sharper and harder, but it’s noticeable how much less eerie is the monaural The Wicked Messenger.
The set is beautifully packaged, a handsome slipcase housing a lavish booklet and CDs in card facsimiles of the original album sleeves, with detail accurate enough to incorporate the original rough texture of the Times jacket and the trashy, advert-adorned inner bag of the debut. This will all presumably be some compensation for those purist audiophiles shocked to discover that mixing and matching between stereo and mono releases will be necessary to obtain the best listening experience.

Введенная в национального наследия Фонд Зала Славы Блюза как "Великий Блюзовый музыкант" и назначена послом в Сан-Франциско. Моника Дюпонт начала записываться в возрасте 13 лет в 1961 и ушла из музыки в 1983 году. Популярность ее старых записей убедил ее вернуться в 2008 году снова к музыке, и выпустить альбом "Life Goes On". Сейчас ей 63 года. И вот уже в 2011 вышел ещё один новый альбом Моники "Early Eighties (Redux)."
Ральф Дж. Глеасон (Ralph J. Gleason) сказал: "Monica Dupont поет как Мадди Уотерс (Muddy Waters) и выглядит как Мэри Тайлер-Мур (Mary Tyler-Moore)".
Buddy Guy сравнил ее с Junior Wells.

 Legendary blues singer/songwriter Monica Dupont returns after a 25 year absence from music with an album of diverse and exciting modern blues; her exceptional, original songs showcase her powerful, unique vocal style and she is backed by an all star band.
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Album Notes
Monica's first new recording in over 20 years, "Life Goes On" is a remarkable collection of pure blues; something old, something new, all a little bit different, each one uniquely Monica Dupont. Her ability to leap effortlessly from shuffle to boogie to pure Delta to swing and yet remain completely authentic and original is a rare and wonderful talent.
Supported by an A-list of fabulous musicians (all of whom are connected to her from the "old days" of Oakland Blues), this album makes a statement that cannot be ignored. Like a great book that one can't put down, it draws you in and holds your attention. Each song is a new style; each style is a new sound. Her voice, a voice like no other you've heard, ties it all together. Once you've heard her, you can instantly identify her forever. Make no mistake - this is NOT "more of the same old blues". This is the real deal for people who know and love the blues.

   Blues From The Heart  
Monica Dupont has the rare gift to reach the listener's soul with her deep, unique voice and her honest, *from the heart* song-delivery. Her CD *Life Goes On* spans the entire musical spectrum of the Blues - and beyond.  
The 10 songs on her album demonstrate that she is easily at home singing Jazz, Rock, Soul, Traditional and Modern Blues, without ever compromising her individuality.
Monica is also an accomplished guitarist and song-writer. Her seven compositions on this CD highlight the diverse range of styles mentioned above, never sounding cliche or resorting to the over-worked 12-bar structure.
 
Every track on *Life Goes On* is a stand-out, but I do have my favourites...and they're all Monica's songs, like the jazzy *Mr Cool*, the rocking *Shakin' The Sheets* and the Chicago-flavoured *When I'm Gone*.
There are surprises too - like her rendition of *Running Bear*, in which Monica succeeds in putting a totally different, but convincing meaning to the old Johnny Preston tune.  

"Life Goes On" is an album that will please music lovers of all genres and ages, because the music is sung and played *From The Heart*. I highly recommend it.

Делюкс-переиздание дебютного альбома самой популярной английской исполнительницы современности. Включает редкие радиосессии, демо-версии и ремиксы.
Альбом "Frank" - первый в карьере Amy Winehouse - был более чем хорошо принят критиками и получил награду Mercury Awards. В делюксовое переиздание, которое вышло на двух дисках, помимо самого альбома вошли эксклюзивные материалы, которые раннее не издавались.


Свою дебютную пластинку Frank, названную в честь Фрэнка Синатры, певица охарактеризовала как «защитную реакцию»: «Когда я делала этот альбом, я курила травку, и вся моя сущность была —«ты меня не знаешь, ты мне не нужен, ты меня не любишь, да пошел ты!» А во время написания второго альбома я слушала музыку 60-х, всякую всячину из музыкальных автоматов. И много пила — что намного депрессивнее, чем травка». 
 
“Frank is the debut studio album by English recording artist Amy Winehouse, released 20 October 2003 on Island Records. Production for the album took place during 2002 to 2003 and was handled by Winehouse, Salaam Remi, Commissioner Gordon, Jimmy Hogarth and Matt Rowe. Its title alludes to the nature and tone of Winehouse's lyrics on the album.
Upon its release, Frank received generally positive reviews from most music critics and earned Winehouse several accolades, including an Ivor Novello Award. Since its original release in the United Kingdom, the album has been reissued in Canada, the United States and Australia. On 18 December 2008, it was certified triple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry, denoting shipments in excess of 900,000 copies in the UK.”

Эми Джейд Уайнхаус (Amy Jade Winehouse) — английская певица, исполняющая соул-поп c джазовыми мотивами, признанная критиками одной из ведущих британских исполнительниц 2000-х годов. Эми Уайнхаус — дважды лауреат премии Ivor Novello, её первый альбом Frank (2003) был номинирован на Mercury Prize. 14 февраля 2007 года певица получила Brit Award как «Лучшая британская исполнительница» («Best British Female Artist»). Второй альбом Back to Black принёс ей 6 номинаций «Грэмми» и — победу в 5 категориях (включая Record of the Year). Уайнхаус, страдающая от алкогольной и наркотической зависимости, долгое время находилась в центре публичных скандалов и судебных разбирательств.
     
Она умерла в 27 - как Джим Моррисон, Джими Хендрикс, 
      Дженис Джоплин, Брайан Джонс и Курт Кобейн.
Тело Эми Уайнхаус было найдено врачами скорой помощи в ее лондонском доме на Кэмден-сквер 23 июля в 15 часов 54 минуты. Точная причина смерти пока не объявлена, но все догадываются: это передозировка наркотиков (нашлись люди, видевшие, как она в ночь перед смертью покупает у наркоторговца экстази, кетамин и кокаин). Она была замечательной певицей с очень сильным голосом. Нового альбома от нее так и не дождались.
 

 

en.wikipedia.org
Back to Black is the second and final studio album by English recording artist Amy Winehouse, released 4 October 2006 on Island Records. It incorporates 1960s soul music styles and modern R&B production, with subjective lyrics that concern relationships and reflect on Winehouse's experiences with drinking, sex, and drugs. The album produced several singles, including "Rehab", "You Know I'm No Good", "Back to Black", "Tears Dry on Their Own", and "Love Is a Losing Game". Back to Black received positive reviews from most music critics, earning praise for its classicist soul influences, Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson's production, and Winehouse's songwriting and emotive singing style.
At the 50th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, Back to Black won five awards, tying the record (with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Beyonce Knowles, Norah Jones, and Alison Krauss) for the second-most awards won by a female artist in a single ceremony. The album won Best Pop Vocal Album, while "Rehab" won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Song of the Year and Record of the Year with Amy Winehouse winning Best New Artist. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year.

The story of Back to Black is one in which celebrity and the potential of commercial success threaten to ruin Amy Winehouse, since the same insouciance and playfulness that made her sound so special when she debuted could easily have been whitewashed right out of existence for this breakout record. (That fact may help to explain why fans were so scared by early press allegations that Winehouse had deliberately lost weight in order to present a slimmer appearance.) Although Back to Black does see her deserting jazz and wholly embracing contemporary R&B, all the best parts of her musical character emerge intact, and actually, are all the better for the transformation from jazz vocalist to soul siren. With producer Salaam Remi returning from Frank, plus the welcome addition of Mark Ronson (fresh off successes producing for Christina Aguilera and Robbie Williams), Back to Black has a similar sound to Frank but much more flair and spark to it. Winehouse was inspired by girl group soul of the '60s, and fortunately Ronson and Remi are two of the most facile and organic R&B producers active. (They certainly know how to evoke the era too; Remi's "Tears Dry on Their Own" is a sparkling homage to the Motown chestnut "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," and Ronson summons a host of Brill Building touchstones on his tracks.) As before, Winehouse writes all of the songs from her experiences, most of which involve the occasionally riotous and often bittersweet vagaries of love. Also in similar fashion to Frank, her eye for details and her way of relating them are delightful. She states her case against "Rehab" on the knockout first single with some great lines: "They tried to make me go to rehab I won't go go go, I'd rather be at home with Ray" (Charles, that is). As often as not, though, the songs on Back to Black are universal, songs that anyone, even Joss Stone, could take to the top of the charts, such as "Love Is a Losing Game" or the title song ("We only said good bye with words, I died a hundred times/You go back to her, and I go back to black"). /Capping the year as one of the world's biggest sellers, Back to Black was reissued in November 2007 with a bonus CD. The eight extraq songs are awash with covers such as Sam Cooke's "Cupid" and several from the ska/rocksteady canon: "Monkey Man," "You're Wondering Now," and "Hey Little Rich Girl."/
