Six Strings, Infinite Intensity


Back in the early 80's, this disc set the guitar world on it's collective butt. Even 20 years later, I'm amazed at the depth of talent and creativity that Michael possessed. Had he only produced this one disc, his place in music history would have been cemented. This makes me all the more sad that his life was cut short by an auto accident in '98.
Breakfast In The Field does not have a weak cut on it. Having been released on the Windham Hill label, many were content to consider it New Age and by keeping the volume low, the melodious tunes seemed to conspire with that theory. But those that witnessed his live shows realized that Michael encompassed so much more, from classical to jazz, rock and beyond. From the opening track ("Layover") we are taken on an incredible acoustic guitar journey, much like an aural rollercoaster. Mellower songs are interspersed with the more intense until track eleven ("Silent Anticipations") arrives to peel back any remaining preconceptions we may have about the limitations of solo acoustic guitar. Fortunately, the disc ends with the meditative "Lenono", allowing our pulses to return from the stratosphere.
This album is truly a Desert Island Selection. It's hard to imagine that anyone that likes instrumental acoustic guitar not falling totally in love with it. Pair it with the second album ("Aerial Boundaries") for a killer one-two punch. Knockout.

Best soundtrack of the 80s (ok ok almost)


That was a very good movie in the 80s and it still good compare to some very bad teen flick of today. The soundtrack is very good with songs by John Parr, David Foster and a few others. I buy the soundtrack because of thoses 2, they were the best and their music still play on radio nowadays. I like it, easily a 5/5 for me!! This is a must-buy!! Specialy if you're a fan of that great movie.

Rock & Roll Parents Dream


We use to listen to the same old songs, never to our own music when the children were young. We bought this tape and it was the first time we enjoyed their music. They wore two tapes out. Now we were remembering when we use to listen to it and now want to buy the CD for great childhood memories.

One of the best film scores of all time!


Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" is one of my favorite films. And John Williams'musical score brilliantly captures the atmosphere of it. Not only the soundtrack is terrifying, but it also has a combination of instruments that really makes you feel as if you are at sea, fighting the Great White. This can be felt particularly in "Chrissie's Death", where you can "hear" the young girl's "bubbles". A terrific score, one of the best in film music history!
