The makers of "The RCA & Arista Album Collection" have shown an exemplary approach to the re-release of the Lou Reeds work: So the CDs offer a clearly improved sound as well as sound elements, which one did not hear on early vinyl and CD Pressungen. For example in groundbreaking works such as "Transformer", "Berlin", "Metal Machine Music" or "Street Hassle", with which Lewis Allan Reed earned himself a reputation as an unconventional thinker and total denier, and in some cases created sound art so far ahead of its time that nobody understood it at first.
GOOD TIMES, BAD TIMES
Led Zeppelin in the Mirror of the World Press: 1968-1980
The reverberation of Led Zeppelin is enormous. The band hasn't existed for more than 30 years, but they're still being reported on - almost unchecked. The coverage of her unique reunion concert in December 2007 was indeed just as hysterical as it was during her active reign. This era, the years 1968 to 1980, we trace on the following pages from the perspective of the contemporary world press and send our best wishes to the jubilarian Jimmy Page.
The Soul of the Stones
Swiss time was running out
When they recorded "Machine Head" forty years ago, it was an extraordinary feat of strength for the British hard rockers. Her management rushed her around the globe in the early seventies, from tour to tour. Also, internal trench warfare was a major problem for the band. In addition, there was an unprecedented chaos at the recording location in Montreux, Switzerland. But at the end it stood, the legendary sixth record of Deep Purple.

Twelve years - six years - six months: Who would have thought that the pauses between the musical signs of life of Kate Bush would be shorter instead of longer? The fact is that Kate Bush is finally independent and can work as she pleases. "Fish People", her own label, makes possible what seemed impossible so far - two outstanding albums of the wondrous sound artist in one year.
40 Years "Aqualung"
The showman must go on
62 years old, nominated for the BRIT Awards - Robert Plant doesn't give the impression that he wants to hang up the microphone so quickly. On 22 January, on the verge of his two appearances in Toronto, Canada, the legendary shouter talked about how he became the musician he is today and why a Led Zeppelin reunion would give him nothing.
THE ROLLING STONES
Exile in Stones style
In 1971 the Rolling Stones had their back to the wall - almost broke, they had fled from the English tax into exile in southern France, where they wanted to record a new album. "Exile On Main St.", created under adventurous circumstances in the cellar of Keith Richards' Villa Nellcôte, became a myth.
