Title: Ziggy Stardust [30th Anniversary Edition]
Label: Virgin Records
Artist: David Bowie
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
a nice collection worth every penny

Ziggy played guitar 30 years ago, and still rocks as hard as ever. While the 1999 remaster of the album committed sin by omitting it, the back of the album is once again displaying "TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME"... for those who had yet to figure the obvious out.
A splendid package, which almost appears to be one book that happens to include two cds. The first cd is the original album, untainted by additional bonus tracks, in it's original conceptual form. The second cd is full of era-specific b-sides, demos, etc related to the period. While most of these appeared on the 1990 Ryko cds, they've been remastered and put back into print into one place in a nice little sequence. It's been long over due.
It would have been a crime to have included all of these songs on one cd, as another reviewer had suggested.
Sure this may include three versions of Moonage Daydream, but really, can you go wrong with that song? No, I didn't think so. I was only surprised that they didn't re-issue the Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture live album at the same time as this, but perhaps they're waiting to release it with the DVD release.
You can't go wrong with this.. the nearly complete story of one of rock's finest moments.

Title: Einstein on the Beach
Label: Sony

A great idea whose time has gone...

This CD set is about three and a half hours of trance music. It's very nice with headphones and a lot of time to kill. The fidelity of this recording is much better than the original soundtrack, released in the mid-1970s. The booklet included with the set also goes into compositional technique, storyline, and other info about Glass and Wilson.
The drawback, of course, is that this is just the same old minimalist stuff. It's not as interesting as some of his other work (la Belle et la Bete, for example). It is, however, the best minimalist stuff he's written; I think this is because once he got tagged as a minimalist he just let things slide.

Tunes Until Dawn

A beautiful album, with a wide range of Cape Breton fiddle and piano pieces. Truly rapture to listen to.
