The Missionaries is a story of the collision of three cultures. A brilliant tale of ineptitude, self-righteousness, and human folly, it combines the mordant wit of W. Somerset Maugham with a sense of humor reminiscent of P. G. Wodehouse. When Dr. Sydney Prout is named the head of the UN mission to Elephant Island, he believes he is more than ready to meet the challenge of guiding its primitive inhabitants into the post-Colonial era and eventually full independence. But neither his many academic credentials nor the Journal of Race Relations have prepared Dr. Prout to reckon with the unrepentant bloody-mindedness of the natives or anticipate the inventive ways their tribal philosophers will incorporate the most unlikely aspects of modern civilization into their religious lore and traditional way of life. 1.

LP auf SUNDAZED RECORDS von YOUNG RASCALS - Once Upon A Dream 180g LP For their fourth album, 1968´s Once Upon A Dream, the Rascals decisively stepped into the future, dropping the ´Young´ from their name and embracing the period´s spirit of musical adventure. The resulting album seamlessly integrates elements of jazz and psychedelia into the quartet´s sound, along with adventurous arrangements and introspective, philosophical lyrics. While many of their contemporaries were getting lost in a psychedelic haze, the Rascals managed to expand their creative horizons without sacrificing the unpretentious tunefulness that first endeared them to fans. The Rascals produced the album themselves, with help from noted arranger Arif Mardin and engineers Tom Dowd and Adrian Barber, who helped to create the imaginative sound effects that punctuate the songs. The band´s budding interest in jazz is reflected in the participation of such noted players as Ron Carter, Hubert Laws, Chuck Rainey, Richard Davis, Steve Marcus and King Curtis. The tunes´including the celebratory Top Ten hit ´It´s Wonderful´´are arranged as a song cycle, with sophisticated arrangements that incorporate jazz and orchestral textures, along with some of the band´s most inventive vocal interplay. Highlights include the laid-back ´Easy Rollin´´ (a sequel of sorts to ´Groovin´´), the blue-eyed soul gem ´My World,´ the Eastern excursion ´Sattva,´ the psychedelic epic ´Rainy Day´ and the fuzz-guitar-fueled, jazz-tinged ´Please Love Me.´ Eddie´s brother David Brigati, long an unsung hero for his behind-the-scenes contributions to the Rascals´ prior albums, steps out front to sing Once Upon A Dream´s title song. This fully restored edition of this one-of-a-kind album has been mastered from the original analog stereo tapes, with meticulously reproduced gatefold cover art. It´s pressed on High-Definition Vinyl, all the better to make this dream a reality!
The musical world commemorates the 250th anniversary of the death of Georg Philipp Telemann, one of the most prolific and important Baroque composers. Telemann was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the leading German composers, on a par with Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel, both of whom he knew personally. Telemann´s music incorporates several national styles, including the French and Italian, and is even influenced by Polish popular music. His music is always fresh, inventive, melodious and full of humour, wit and instrumental brilliance. This 10 CD Collection (an ´´Edition Light´´) contains Telemann´s most popular works, including the famous Tafelmusik, concertos for trumpet, recorder and oboe, orchestral suites and the Passion Oratorio. Performances by excellent early music ensemble like Musica Amphion/Pieter-Jan Belder and Erik Bosgraaf and Cordevento.
