Video game music grew up alongside the development of electronic synthesis and sound chip technology. In the early 1960s, when the MIT hackers were cobbling together Spacewar, they were also modifying their PDP-1 minicomputer to play four-track electronic music through a speaker system rigged to the four light-bulb plugs on the front of the computer. Like Spacewar, the punch card-powered music program was an unauthorized experiment to push the boundaries of what a computer could do besides count really fast.
Game developers sought to push the sound capabilities of their games from very early on. Nolan Bushnell demanded the roar of a crowd in PONG, but Al Alcorn knew the iconic beeps and boops would lodge into our heads. Early games implemented startup jingles (PAC-MAN), voice synthesis (Berserk), dynamic music (Dig Dug), and full scores (Pitfall 2, Pac-Land) that fed into the math-rock vibes of the NES and the weird improvisational melodies of the C64. Some games became as or more remembered for their soundtracks as any other element of their design and as storage and compression technologies improved side by side, video game music became more generally orchestral in nature.
Legendary blues singer/songwriter/guitarist Big Bill Broonzy was a force in music from the 1920s until his passing in 1958. He was one of the first American blues artists to play Europe, and this fine recording shows how he influenced a generation of guitar players including Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Jerry Garcia and Bert Jansch.
Since he was the legendary wild man of the Kinks -- the man responsible for their proto-heavy metal guitars, the battling brother of Ray -- it's been easy to pigeonhole Dave Davies as just a hard rocker but anybody who paid close attention to his solo work would know that he has a spiritual, even mystical, dimension to his music which shines through clearly on this classic Dave Davies album.
"1976 was a great year for re-iteration of the Flying Burrito Brothers having the opportunity to travel throughout the USA celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the founding of the United States. Though Gram Parsons wasn't around anymore, Chris Hillman embarked on a solo career, and Chris Ethridge had just departed this band, we had some great guys that just happened to be real familiar with the 'Burrito' mentality. It all came together quite spectacularly! To begin, Gib Guilbeau was my life-long pal and Cajun guy par excellence. Gene Parsons, formerly of the Byrds, was he drummer from hell who lifted the excitement to the limit (and picked a great banjo and string bender guitar. What can I say about Joel Scott Hill? A rebel? A reverent fanatic? A soulful and emotional artist? ALL of the above! Then there is Skip Battin, who just joined the band whom everyone loved and called friend who provided very original bass and vocal support. All these cuts are genuine items from a live performance at New York City's legendary "Bottom Line" club with all the warts AND magical moments. No fix ups and no apologies. Just real music and true enthusiasm. This was the way it was when he hit the road in 1976!"- "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow, 2001

Trailer Bride's 1996 self-titled record is a long-lost relic of the blooming Chapel Hill, North Carolina music scene of the '90s. Superchunk, Polvo, Archers of Loaf and other indie rock darlings were leading the town's indie rock movement while Southern Culture on the Skids were pushing the alt-country genre forward. Then comes Trailer Bride who combined both of those worlds with a gothic, lo-fi sound that centers around Melissa Swingle's atmospheric vocals and cryptic lyrics. Swingle started Trailer Bride following the demise of her band Pussy Teeth and would later go on to form the indie rock duo The Moaners with Laura King (Bat Fangs, Speed Stick), but the dark, southern sound that defines Trailer Bride's debut record provides a mystifying listening experience a quarter-century later. No Depression said it best in their 1997 review: "They're impossible to describe, but whatever you wanna call it, they sound really good." The album is available for the first time ever on vinyl for Record Store Day Black Friday 2022. This 25th anniversary edition is pressed on cloudy orange vinyl and remastered for vinyl. Limited to 1,500 copies worldwide.

The Ballerina Music Box belongs to the limited edition of the Circus Collection by Alessi. It was designed by Marcel Wanders. The tune is the song "Entry of the Gladiators" by Julius Fučík, which has become known worldwide as the first song of each circus show. By the turning of the elephant, the mechanism starts and Valentina delicately performs her pirouettes to the famous melody.
The Ballerina Carillon by Alessi is a sculptural object for design lovers and available in a limited edition with 999 pieces. It consists of 18 parts made of stainless steel, which are assembled in four different production processes. Lost wax casting, for complex design elements with minute details to be reproduced; CNC machining for details that require high-precision execution for the purpose of coupling; flatbed laser cutting for complex geometric figures. The fourth method, the pressing of metal, is used ever since production started at Alessi.
The music box mechanism is made in traditional craftsmanship in Switzerland. The elephant consists of three parts, which are welded together using laser technology. The ball, the elephant balanced on, is coated with a thin layer of gold. The coloured parts of the music box are painted elaborately by hand, which is why minimum blemishes can occur. This is however not a shortcoming, but makes each individual carillon absolutely unique. The limited edition music box is a special gift idea and unusual collectible, with sculptural charms.
