Nick Drake: Time Of No Reply

Time Of No Reply is a collection of rare studio sessions, outtakes and home recordings from Nick Drake.

"Nick Drake died in 1974, but the cult surrounding him and the three albums released during his lifetime (Five Leaves Left, Bryter Layter, Pink Moon), keeps on growing. The only posthumous album so far to include previously unreleased material, Time Of No Reply, acts as a useful coda to the fragile charms of Nick Drake. The 14 tracks include some of Nick's home recordings ("Fly", "Mayfair", "Strange Meeting II") as well as alternative takes of songs he later re-cut ("Man In A Shed", "Thoughts Of Mary Jane"). Most illuminating, though, are the four final tracks that Nick recorded right at the end of his life. "Rider On The Wheel" is among the most attractive of his melodies, but it is the chilling "Black Eyed Dog"--a haunted English blues-style song and the despairing "Hanging On A Star" which are the most striking. Within a year, Nick Drake was dead. But for once, the cliché rings true, and the music really does live on." ~ Patrick Humphries

Oasis: Live At Muziekcentrum Vredenburg 1996

Oasis perform live at Muziekcentrum (Music Centre) Vredenburg, Utrecht, Netherlands. 10th January 1996.

Original Notes:
"This looks really as the unprocessed source of the bootleg versions, the spectrum looks the same on this as on the '1996 Live' version, but on the bootleg you see it was enhanced. I prefer the sound of this but both sound perfect it's a matter of tastes but this is the complete recording (including 2 more songs Morning Glory and Don't Look Back In Anger). I really think this is the complete recording as Liam loses his voice badly during Live Forever and checking the setlist they would only had left I Am The Walrus out, and with Liam losing his voice is the most accurate guess."
