Various Artists – My Blueberry Nights Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (2007/2016)
PS3 Rip | SACD ISO | DST64 2.0 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | Full Scans  | 1.98 GB
Genre: Rock, Blues, Jazz | Label: Block 2 Music / Universal Music (8889792)

My Blueberry Nights is notable not only as the first English-language film by director Wong Kar Wai but also for the acting debut of Norah Jones. It’s surprising, then, that the soundtrack only includes one song from Jones, “The Story,” the only new song on the set and one that Jones has stated reflects her doubts about becoming an actress. It’s not appreciably different than anything else Jones has recorded to this point, a slow, jazzy ballad featuring her moody vocals and piano in a trio setting. As for the rest, it’s an appealing mix of R&B (Mavis Staples, Ruth Brown, Otis Redding), jazz (Cassandra Wilson), a couple of Cat Power tunes, and the ubiquitous Ry Cooder, who always makes any soundtrack worth a listen.  ~~ AllMusic Review by Jeff Tamarkin

Various Artists – Top Gun (OST 1986) [1999 Special Edition]
PS3 Rip | ISO | SACD DSD64 2.0 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 56:42 minutes | Scans included | 2,3 GB
or FLAC(converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | Scans included | 1,14 GB

A mega Soundtrack to a Mega-Movie! Fueled by the power of numerous hit singles, the 1986 Top Gun soundtrack quickly became a pop music phenomenon in its own right, and remains one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time. This expanded edition-with sound that’ll make you feel like you’re “mach 2 with your hair on fire” – contains additional liner notes, photos and 5 bonus cuts.

There are a few movie and soundtrack pairings that represent the wild 1980s. None more so than Top Gun (Footloose and Pretty in Pink are also strong contenders.) A whirlwind romance set in the U.S. Air Force during the Cold War, Top Gun featured wild aerial acrobatics, steamy sexual tension, and macho competition. And the soundtrack had the songs to match. Featuring the huge hits “Danger Zone,” “Take My Breath Away,” as well as “Playing with the Boys,” “Mighty Wings,” and a handful of classic soul tracks, the Top Gun soundtrack may be the perfect example of the outrageous ’80s. This version expands on the original, including a number of songs not featured on the initial release, such as “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” and “Great Balls of Fire”.

Tracklist:
01. Kenny Loggins – Danger Zone
02. Cheap Trick – Mighty Wings
03. Kenny Loggins – Playing With The Boys
04. Teena Marie – Lead Me On
05. Berlin – Take My Breath Away (Love Theme From “Top Gun”)
06. Miami Sound Machine – Hot Summer Nights
07. Loverboy – Heaven In Your Eyes
08. Larry Greene – Through The Fire
09. Marietta – Destination Unknown
10. Harold Faltermeyer & Steve Stevens – Top Gun Anthem
11. Otis Redding – (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay
12. Harold Faltermeyer – Memories
13. Jerry Lee Lewis – Great Balls Of Fire
14. The Righteous Brothers – You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling
15. Kenny Loggins – Playing With The Boys (12″ Version)

Engineered for SACD by Vic Anesini.

Erich Kunzel & The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra – Round-Up (feat. Frankie Laine) (1986) [Reissue 2006] PS3 Rip | ISO | SACD DST64 2.0 & 5.1 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 62:33 minutes | Scans included | 3,99 GB
or FLAC 2.0 Stereo (converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | Scans included | 1,14 GB
Features 2.0 Stereo and 5.1 multichannel surround sound (New Surround Mix!) | Telarc # SACD-60141 | Genre: Score, Soundtrack

The Cincinnati Pops is one of America’s favorite orchestras, playing classical hits, orchestral versions of pop and jazz, movie themes and show tunes…

This rootin’-tootin’ salute to Westerns on TV and movie screens was the most popular demonstration disc at the 1987 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas — and it’s easy to hear why. Before you can say Hopalong Cassidy, the disc opens with the stunningly reproduced stereophonic hooting of horses on the range, followed of course by a leisurely trot through the “Hi-O-Silver” section of Rossini’s “William Tell” Overture. Excerpts from Elmer Bernstein’s score for The Magnificent Seven — which contains probably his most memorable theme, along with a Copland pastiche — are given a spectacular arrangement by Christopher Palmer. The usual big-time Hollywood composers of the past, Alfred Newman (How the West Was Won), Dimitri Tiomkin (Gunfight at the OK Corral, High Noon), Franz Waxman (The Furies), and Jerome Moross (Big Country) show up — and collectively they prove that Westerns invariably brought out the best in their craft. A Palmer/Boston Pops-style medley of TV themes with gunfire punctuation turns up, as does a taste of the genuine article, Richard Hayman’s “Pops Hoedown” — complete with whoops from some hired hands on the recording stage. Why, even Frankie Laine, then 73, was lassoed out of semi-retirement in order to authentically resurrect “OK Corral,” “Rawhide,” and his big hit “High Noon.” Laine sounds pretty good, hamming it up in “Rawhide” and delivering “High Noon” in clipped phrases. The weight of Kunzel’s Cincinnati Pops enhances the stature of this music to no end — and Telarc’s pickup of the sound is as broad as a big screen and deep as a desert canyon. This is one of the best of Kunzel’s many discs, and it sounds as if he and the Pops are having a ball recording it.

Tracklist:
01. Sounds of the West (SFX)
02. William Tell Overture: Finale (Lone Ranger Theme)
03. The Magnificent Seven
04. The Furies Suite
05. Round-Up: Anthology of TV Western Themes: Bonanza
