VIDEO: Entombed A.D.’s “Dead Dawn”

Dead Dawn is the latest album by Entombed A.D. and the band have created a video for the title track. The video looks rustic, which may be code for “old”, “classic”, a relic, crusty, but awesome and it’s all of that and more, looking like something pulled from the archives but it was just shot a few months ago. The album is out now via Century Media.

SOME STUFFS: Audio Fidelity gets into jazz fusion with new remasters

The folks at Audio Fidelity have been dipping into some morsels in the last year and as 2016 slowly comes to a close, they are entering the world of jazz fusion with new hybrid SACD remasters.

Tale Spinnin’ was Weather Report’s fifth album that came out in 1975. While my dad was not heavy into jazz fusion, he did love this album and I’m not sure if he was like me where he randomly chose an album and said “I’ll try this” or if he simply liked the cover. He bought it on cassette and it became one of his cruising albums. Personal reflection aside, this was the album produced bY Weather Report members Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter and this one contains some nice gems, including “Five Short Stories” and “Lusitanos”.

Musicmagic was Return To Forever’s seventh album which is also known for being the group’s last. This was the follow-up to the band’s successful Romantic Warrior album and with this one, Stanley Clarke and Chick Corea were the remaining two from the original line-up. There was a live album after Musicmagic but by then, it was over. Upon listening to Musicmagic, it sounded like they could’ve went on forever like their own name but they had other plans. This one has Clarke’s “So Long Mickey Mouse” while thea lbum ends with a song done by Corea and his wife Gayle Moran, “The Endless Night”.

The CD side will feature the original stereo mix of the album while the SACD side will contain the original quadraphonic mix. Both of these discs are scheduled for release on October 21st, both can be pre-ordered below via
