Created a now staggering 15 years ago in 1990, in the days before aggressive marketing, before pop as a tabloid staple, before infinite music channels and pop´s new 24-hour nerve centre, the Internet, Take That seduced the nation. Next year the group is reforming, albeit without Robbie Williams, with a number of sold out concerts in the Summer of 2006.
When the going gets tough Ireland´s Westlife gets going. It´s hard to believe that Westlife stormed the charts and achieved success in such a short period of time and within a few years of their forming they had seven numbers 1´s, Best New Band, Record of The Year and a biography under their belts. Nicky, Kian, Brian, Shane and Mark quickly established themselves as the fans favourites and the demise of Take That and Boyzone gave them a captive market. This is not a music release by the band or record label and sound quality may vary. In this unique Westlife audiobiography the band share the secret of their success, their attitude to the fans, life on the road and how they manage to work together. Even with Brian leaving and the reforming of Take That and Boyzone Westlife are here to stay. A must for fans, music historians and collectors. 1. Language: English.

US rockers Aerosmith, who have often been compared to the Rolling Stones, are a band whose career dates back to the early ´70s and whose influence on the Glam Rock scene has been considerable. Aerosmith formed in the US in 1970 with a line up of vocalist Steve Tyler, guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton, and drummer Joey Kramer. In this unique and exclusive audiobiog, we hear the reason behind the bands early break up and reforming, the answer to drug allegations, and about life on the road and in the studio. This is not an authorised record company, artist, or management music release, and suond qualilty may vary. Substance abuse, rock-and-roll, wasted money, determination, being clean, and the live gig - here are all the secrets and the truth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rockview.

(Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise controll of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition, similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years. In NX Series guitars, this treatment results in a sound close to that of a vintage guitar that has been played for years. It produces a sharper tone while simultaneously controlling dissonance in the high range. Instruments that have undergone this process have received high marks from a great number of musicians. Their evaluations are nearly identical to those for guitars that have been played for years, and their comments often include terms such as well settled, mature, warm, excellent resonance, and clear.
Following the execution of the king in 1649, the new Commonwealth and then Oliver Cromwell set out to drive forward a puritan reformation of manners. They wanted to reform the church and its services, enforce the Sabbath, suppress Christmas, and spread the gospel. They sought to impose a stern moral discipline to regulate and reform sexual behaviour, drinking practices, language, dress, and leisure activities ranging from music and plays to football. England´s Culture Wars explores how far this agenda could be enforced, especially in urban communities which offered the greatest potential to build a godly civic commonwealth. How far were local magistrates and ministers willing to cooperate, and what coercive powers did the regime possess to silence or remove dissidents? How far did the reformers themselves wish to go, and how did they reconcile godly reformation with the demands of decency and civility? Music and dancing lived on, in genteel contexts, early opera replaced the plays now forbidden, and puritans themselves were often fond of hunting and hawking. Bernard Capp explores the propaganda wars waged in press and pulpit, how energetically reformation was pursued, and how much or little was achieved. Many recent historians have dismissed interregnum reformation as a failure. He demonstrates that while the reforming drive varied enormously from place to place, its impact could be powerful. The book is therefore structured in three parts: setting out the reform agenda and challenges, surveying general issues and patterns, and finally offering a number of representative case-studies. It draws on a wide range of sources, including local and central government records, judicial records, pamphlets, sermons, newspapers, diaries, letters, and memoirs; and demonstrates how court records by themselves give us only a very limited picture of what was happening on the ground. 1.
