Βαγγέλης Παπάζογλου-συλλογή (collection)





Ο Βαγγέλης Παπάζογλου, γνωστός και ως Αγγούρης (Ντουρμπαλί Σμύρνης, 1896 - Κοκκινιά, 27 Ιουνίου 1943) ήταν Έλληναςδιακεκριμένος λαϊκός μουσικός και τραγουδοποιός, από τους κορυφαίους προπολεμικούς ρεμπέτες.

Βιογραφία

Γεννήθηκε το 1896 στο Ντουρμπαλί, ένα μικρό χωριό λίγο πιο έξω από την Σμύρνη. Πήγε μόνο μέχρι την τρίτη δημοτικού στο ελληνικό σχολείο, αφού ακολουθούσε στη δουλειά τον πατέρα του, που ήταν σιδηροδρομικός και αναγκαζόταν να μετακινείται στις περιοχές της Σμύρνης.

Υπήρξε αυτοδίδακτος μουσικός. Από παιδάκι έπαιζε μαντολίνο και αργότερα έμαθε κιθάρα, βιολί και μπάντζο. Συμμετείχε στην περίφημη Εστουδιαντίνα «Τα Πολιτάκια» ως δεύτερο μαντολίνο (με πρώτο τον Σπύρο Περιστέρη και τον Παναγιώτη Τούντα). Εκεί γνωρίστηκε με τους άλλους μεγάλους Σμυρνιούς μουσικούς Σπύρο Περιστέρη, Παναγιώτη Τούντα, τους Ογδοντάκηδες, το Δημήτρη Σέμση ή Σαλονικιό που γύρω στο 1920 ήταν στη Σμύρνη παίζοντας βιολί κ.ά. Αν και αυτοδίδακτος, κατόρθωσε με τη βοήθεια του μαέστρου Σπύρου Περιστέρη να μάθει τη μουσική σημειογραφία. Έτσι πάρα πολλές παρτιτούρες των τραγουδιών του διασώθηκαν μέχρι σήμερα.

Με την απελευθέρωση της Σμύρνης το 1919, κατατάσσεται ως εθελοντής στον Ελληνικό Στρατό που βρέθηκε στην Ιωνία, συμμετέχει στη Μικρασιατική εκστρατεία, αφού κατάφερε προηγουμένος το 1913, να αποφύγει τον τουρκικό στρατό, χρησιμοποιώντας τα έγγραφα ενός πρώτου ξαδέρφου του που είχε πεθάνει πολύ νέος. Μετά την καταστροφή της Σμύρνης, έρχεται ως πρόσφυγας στην Ελλάδα και εγκαθίσταται στην Κοκκινιά του Πειραιά.

Στην Ελλάδα έπιασε κατευθείαν δουλειά ως μουσικός. Το πρώτο μαγαζί στο οποίο δούλεψε επίσημα ήταν αυτό του «Θεοφράστου» στις Τζιτζιφιές, το 1923. Εκεί γνώρισε τη τραγουδίστρια και κόρη του σημαντικού μουσικού δάσκαλου της Σμύρνης Δημήτρη Μαρωνίτη, Αγγελική Μαρωνίτη, με την οποία παντρεύτηκαν το 1927. Στα 1929 η Αγγέλα τυφλώνεται και στα 1936 αποσύρεται οριστικά από τα πάλκα αφού της το απαγορεύει ο Βαγγέλης. Κατοικώντας μαζί πλέον στην Κοκκινιά, δεν αποκτούν παιδιά και έτσι όμως, αποφασίζουν και υιοθετούν τον ανηψιό της Αγγέλας, Γιώργη Παπάζογλου.

Στη δισκογραφία πρωτοεμφανίζεται το 1933 με τρία τραγούδια του: «Αν ήμουν άντρας», «Αργιλέ μου» και «Ο Νικοκλάκιας». Έχει έντονη παρουσία μέχρι το 1937, οπότε έρχεται σε ρήξη με τη Μεταξική λογοκρισία, αρνούμενος δημόσια να λογοκριθούν τα τραγούδια του από «αμόρφωτους ανθρώπους», με αποτέλεσμα την εξαφάνισή του από τη δισκογραφία. Έτσι από το 1937 και μετά, μόνο ένα τραγούδι από τα δεκάδες που είχε, φωνογραφήθηκε στο όνομά του: «Να μη λες το μυστικό σου» με τον Κώστα Ρούκουνα στα τέλη το 1938. Συνεχίζει όμως να παίζει σε κέντρα, γάμους και πανηγύρια ανά την Ελλάδα, αλλά και να γράφει τραγούδια. Πολλά από αυτά τα χάρισε σε άλλους συνθέτες και τραγουδιστές.


Όταν στα 1941 μπήκανε οι Γερμανοί στην Αθήνα, παρ' όλο που υπήρχε προσφορά εργασίας, ο Βαγγέλης Παπάζογλου ήγειρε ηθικό θέμα και μη θέλοντας να παίζει και να χορεύουνε οι «φχαριστημένοι και οι μαυραγορίτες» όπως είπε χαρακτηριστικά, παράτησε την κιθάρα και το τραγούδι και για να μπορέσουν να ζήσουν, έριξε ένα τσουβάλι στον ώμο και έγινε παλιατζής. Τότε προσβλήθηκε από φυματίωση κι έκανε συχνές αιμοπτύσεις και κατόπιν, η Αγγέλα πούλησε σχεδόν τα πάντα από το σπίτι για να έχουν λίγο φαγητό. Ο Βαγγέλης Παπάζογλου, απεβίωσε τελικά από την φυματίωση στις 27 Ιουνίου 1943.

Σήμερα, η οδός στην Κοκκινιά όπου και βρίσκεται η οικία που κατοικούσε, έχει μετανομαστεί από Κίμωνος σε Βαγγέλη Παπάζογλου και επίσης με προσπάθειες της οικογένειας του έχει διατηρηθεί η οικία του.

Broselmaschine - Bröselmaschine - [1971]





Quite possibly the pinnacle of Krautfolk, Broselmaschine is certainly tops in the folk subgenre and is recommended to those interested in the lighter side of Krautrock. Broselmaschine combines the highly talented acoustic guitar playing of Peter Bursch (a master of the instrument who has published many instructional books on the subject), romantic vocals, and a mild Eastern influence highlighted by the use of sitar and flute. The album begins with 'Gedanken', a peaceful track with a slight renaissance-era feel, featuring acoustic and electric guitar, flute and romantic lyrics. Next the group performs the Scottish traditional 'Lassie' with multi-tracked vocal harmonies. Next, 'Guitarrenstuck', is a beautiful piece played with folk guitar and a soothing female vocal. 'The Old Man's Song' seems slightly out of place due to its use of wah-wah peddle, but this gives way to some rather ominous sounding Duul-ish acoustic guitar and folk percussion. 'Schmetterling' introduces an Eastern flavor to the album and is most notable for its sitar which reminds me a little bit of mid-period Popol Vuh. Bursch's guitar playing on this track is simply masterful and the track is given an extra boost from some atmospheric mellotron. 'Nossa Bova' stands out as a folk masterpiece with its incredible guitar work, folk percussion, and female vocals. This track has a peaceful quality similar to Paradieswarts Duul, the only difference being the musical ability of Broselmaschine's members. The album was produced by Rolf Ulrich Kaiser and engineered by Dieter Dierks and was first issued on Pilz in 1971.

Tracks:

1. Gedanken 5.06
2. Lassie 5.06
3. Gittarrenstuck 2.03

Haggard - Awaking The Centuries (2000) & Eppur Si Muove (2004)





Haggard (/ˈhæɡərd/) is a German symphonic metal musical group founded in 1989.[2] The group combines classical music and early music with death doom metal.


Awaking the Centuries is the second full-length album by German symphonic metal band Haggard. It was released on February 7, 2000 by Drakkar Entertainment.The album is based on Michel De Nostredame (Nostradamus) and his experience during The Black Plague in Medieval Europe. The album features several compositions based on Sergei Rachmaninoff's music.




Eppur Si Muove is the third full-length album by the German symphonic metal band Haggard. It was released on April 26, 2004 by Drakkar Entertainment.

The album is based on the life of the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei (1564 –1642), who, according to legend, muttered the phrase eppur si muove, meaning "And yet it does move", after being forced to recant, in front of the Inquisition, his belief that the earth moved around the sun.

Billy Cobham - Spectrum (1973)







spectrum is the debut solo album by jazz fusion drummer Billy Cobham. The album was heavily influenced by the music of Miles Davis, with whom Cobham had previously collaborated extensively, and Cobham's previous band Mahavishnu Orchestra.

The song "Stratus" appears in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV of the radio station "Fusion FM", as well as being the main sample in the Massive Attack hit "Safe from Harm".


Recording

Ken Scott, engineer of Spectrum, recounted: "Bill Cobham's drums were treated in exactly the same way as I recorded every other drummer. I just used more mics: Neumann U67s on toms, D20s or RE20s (at Electric Lady) on the bass drums, Neumann KM54 or 56 on snare, and either STC 4038s or Beyer M160 ribbon mics for the overheads. One other thing: in order to dampen the snare, Bill just laid his wallet on the top head."

Leland Sklar, bassist on four of the songs, remarked, "Spectrum is such a benchmark for so many people. There was a sort of fire in it. It was new ground and it wasn't very analytical. It was more flying by the seat of your pants. That's where great accidents happen, which seems impossible these days. We never did more than a couple of takes on any of it. It was more or less a two-day record. It went by so fast."

Tommy Bolin, who joined the hard rock band Deep Purple two years later, plays lead guitar on four songs. Cobham had met Bolin years before, when he was a member of Zephyr.

"To the Women in My Life" is unusual in that Cobham himself does not play on it, though he did produce the track. It is an unaccompanied piano piece performed by Jan Hammer.


Tracklist

All songs written and composed by Billy Cobham.

"Quadrant 4" – 4:20
"Searching for the Right Door" – 1:19 / "Spectrum" – 5:07
"Anxiety" – 1:41 / "Taurian Matador" – 3:03
"Stratus" – 9:48
"To the Women in My Life" – 0:51 / "Le Lis" – 3:20
"Snoopy's Search" – 1:02 / "Red Baron" – 6:37

Though tracks 2, 3, 5, and 6 are designated as medleys, all of the component songs have clean breaks between them.

Tank - Honour & Blood (1984)




Tank is a British heavy metal band, formed in 1980 by Algy Ward, a former member of The Damned. The band is known as part of the new wave of British heavy metal movement. Tank was often compared to Motörhead as both bands, trios fronted by singing bassists, played a loose, almost punk-styled metal music with often colourful lyrics

Honour & Blood is the fourth album by the British heavy metal band Tank, released in 1984. By the time of this album Algy Ward was the last original member of the group remaining, as the Brabbs brothers had been replaced by Cliff Evans on guitar and Graeme Crallanon drums (reuniting Crallan with his former bandmate in White Spirit, Mick Tucker). The album follows much the same format as the band's previous album This Means War, with seven songs, several quite lengthy, of melodic heavy metal primarily about the topic of war. However, the band explores some different subject matter on side two, as "W.M.L.A." and "Too Tired to Wait for Love", express frustration in love, while "Chain of Fools" is a cover of the 1967 hit by Aretha Franklin

Tracklist

01 - The War Drags Ever On
02 - When All Hell Freezes Over
03 - Honour And Blood
04 - Chain Of Fools
05 - W.M.L.A
06 - Too Tired To Wait For Love

Sula Bassana- Dark Days (2012)




Sula Bassana biography
Dave Schmidt - Born 1968-01-27


SULA BASSANA is the alias for a talented musician named Dave Schmidt. Being master of several instruments he's able to retrospect to a lot of collaborations composing and performing his music. Experiences on stage making spacy, trippy and Krautrock inspired music initiated in 1986 as a keyboard player of the electronic duo Solaris. With the project Twilight Network he gave the last electronic concert in 1991 at the Zeiss Grossplanetarium in Berlin. Some years later he met Hans-Peter Ringholz to form the band Liquid Visions, now playing the bass guitar and producing space rock music similar to Hawkwind. The band had several releases over the years and is currently existing but SULA BASSANA left in 2003.

In the meanwhile in 1997 Zone Six was founded together with Ringholz and Claus Bühler. Five official albums and a lot of live-CD-Rs full of improvised space and Kraut music followed and the band is still alive. SULA BASSANA additionally formed the studio project Weltraumstaunen in 1998 to record some freak outs and filled the drummers seat of the space rock band Growing Seeds. Further collaborations were Psychedelic Monsterjam with Mani Neumeier and Ax Genrich (Guru Guru) with two live albums as the result. They also had a successful gig at the Burg Herzberg Festival 2006. Another collaboration happened with the krautrock band Electric Orange.

The first SULA BASSANA solo album 'Dreamer' sounds like a freaky psychedelic trip - composed, played and produced by himself in 2002. References to Pink Floyd are to examine but also ambient and chillout emphasized parts. 'Sula Bassana And The Nasoni Pop Art Experimental Band Vol. 1' from 2006 is the current release supported by some friends from various bands - an ambitious and mellow work with variety. Located in Austria now Dave Schmidt still works on some new projects.

Uriah Heep - Salisbury (1971) - Firefly (1977)





Uriah Heep are an English rock band formed in London in 1969. It has had the same lineup since 2013: lead and rhythm guitarist Mick Box, keyboardist Phil Lanzon, lead vocalist Bernie Shaw, drummer Russell Gilbrook and bassist Davey Rimmer. Of the current lineup, Box is the only remaining original member. Throughout many lineup changes, the band have included many notable musicians, such as vocalists David Byron, John Lawton, John Sloman, Peter Goalby and Steff Fontaine, bassists Gary Thain, Trevor Bolder, John Wetton, Bob Daisley and John Jowitt, drummers Nigel Olsson, Lee Kerslake and Chris Slade, and keyboardists Ken Hensley and John Sinclair.

Over the course of their 49-year career, Uriah Heep have released twenty-five studio albums, two albums composed of re-recorded material, eighteen live albums and thirty-nine compilation albums. Twelve of the band's studio albums have made it to the UK Albums Chart (Return to Fantasy reached No. 7 in 1975) while of the fifteen Billboard 200 Uriah Heep albums Demons and Wizards was the most successful (#23, 1972). In the late 1970s the band had massive success in Germany, where the "Lady in Black" single was a big hit.

Uriah Heep's audience declined by the 1980s, to the point where they became essentially a cult band in the United Kingdom and United States. The band maintains a significant following and performs at arena-sized venues in the Balkans, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia and Scandinavia. They have sold over 40 million albums worldwide with over 4 million sales in the U.S, where its best-known songs include "Easy Livin'", "The Wizard", "Sweet Lorraine", and "Stealin'".
