    Jeff Beck ~ 1976 ~ Wiredgenre: fusion
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 37'21" size: 235 mb

    Second solo album by British guitarist Jeff Beck. An instrumental album, it peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 and has been certified platinum by the RIAA.
    After the success of his previous album, 1975's Blow by Blow, Beck retained two of its key contributors for the follow-up, keyboardist Max Middleton and producer George Martin. Beck had also begun a musical relationship with former Mahavishnu Orchestra keyboardist Jan Hammer and drummer Narada Michael Walden; Beck would tour with the Jan Hammer Group after these sessions. The result of the interplay between Beck and Hammer was a more "synthesized" sound than that of Blow by Blow, hence the new album's title, Wired.
    Although the band from the previous album appears on some tracks, four are originals by Walden and one by Hammer. Middleton contributed the homage to Led Zeppelin, "Led Boots," and Beck chose to interpret the Charles Mingus ode to saxophonist Lester Young, "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," from the classic jazz album Mingus Ah Um. These last two tracks have been long-time staples of Beck's performance repertoire
    Wired received mostly positive reviews when it was released. In Rolling Stone, the reviewer cited it as being full of "fire and imagination". However, Robert Christgau faulted it as technically proficient but soulless, calling it "mindless trickery". Engineer Peter Henderson later said of the album, "I listened to that a few years later and it sounded like it had been recorded direct to cassette. I don't think it was one of my finer moments."
    Writing for AllMusic, Mark Kirschenmann said: "Within a two-year span, the twin towers Blow by Blow and Wired set a standard for instrumental rock that even Beck has found difficult to match. On Wired, with first-rate material and collaborators on hand, one of rock's most compelling guitarists is in top form."

    Slade ~ 1974b ~ Slade In Flamegenre: glam, hard
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers)
    time: 40'25" size: 233 mb

    Fifth album by the British rock group Slade released on 29 November 1974. The album contained songs from the film of the same name.
    The album reached #6 on the UK album chart and produced two hit singles, "Far Far Away", which reached #2 on the UK Singles chart and "How Does it Feel". The band tried to give the album a "sixties" feel, as its eponymous film was set in 1966.
    Though the record was lauded by critics, the response of the general public was somewhat muted, and the album did not sell as well as expected. In February 1975, "How Does It Feel" was released as a single. Reaching #15 on the charts it ended a run of 12 consecutive Top 4 hits. However, the song has since become regarded as one of the band's finest.
    The album was released in the United States on the Warner Bros. label, with "The Bangin' Man" replacing "Summer Song (Wishing You Were Here)" & "Thanks for the Memory" replacing "Heaven Knows".
    In October 2007, Classic Rock Magazine listed "Slade in Flame" at #18 in the "49 Best Soundtrack Albums" list.
    In 1981, drummer Don Powell was asked in a fan club interview for his three favourite Slade songs. Powell stated "Far Far Away", "Standin' on the Corner" and "Gudbuy T'Jane" as his favourites.
    Before the album's release, the album itself was awarded with a Silver and Gold Disc based on pre-order sales.

    Birtha ~ 1972 ~ Birthagenre: southern
    country: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 37'42"+41/47" size: 624 mb

    American all-female rock band of the early 1970s. Formed in Los Angeles, the band consisted of Shele Pinizzotto (guitar), Rosemary Butler (bass), Sherry Hagler (keyboards), and Olivia "Liver" Favela (drums). Each of the band members contributed lead vocals and harmonies.
    Pinizzotto, Butler, and Hagler grew up in Los Angeles and played together in bands during their high school years. They were joined by Favela in 1968, at which time the group began playing clubs along the West Coast from California to Alaska. Over the next three years, Birtha worked on improving their craft and by 1971 they started to write their own material. Most of the band's songs were composed by members of the group, but there was occasional outside songwriting help from Mark Wickman and Gabriel Mekler.
    Birtha signed a record deal with Dunhill Records in 1972 and released their debut self-titled album, produced by Mekler, later that year. After the album's release, Birtha toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe. The group achieved some notoriety when, during a UK tour with The Kinks, publicity flyers for the shows stated, "Birtha has balls". When Birtha made return visits to Los Angeles, they would often play Whisky a Go Go and The Troubadour, as well as a club in Glendale called The Sopwith Camel.
    In 1973, Birtha released their second album, Can't Stop The Madness, produced by Christopher Huston. The band broke up in 1975.
    Guitarist Michele "Shele" Pinizzotto died on February 4, 2014, aged 66
