Music professor Gus LeGarde is about to embark on a European honeymoon with his new wife, Camille, when his socially challenged brother-in-law receives a mysterious invitation to visit an ailing relative in Germany. Siegfried can´t travel alone, but the newlyweds have no qualms over bringing him along. Unfortunately, their idyllic vacation takes a dark turn at the first stop in Paris, when Gus and Siegfried are caught in a bloody street brawl with a group of neo-Nazis - and a flawed news report frames Siegfried for the murder of one of their leaders, thrusting him into the deadly group´s crosshairs. After a narrow escape, Gus manages to bring his brother-in-law safely to Germany, where he hopes to both salvage the rest of the honeymoon and explore the shocking family secret that awaits there. But the events they´ve set in motion have far-reaching consequences, and the ruthless leader of the terrorist faction has lethal plans in store for Gus, Camille, and Siegfried - and ultimately, the world. 1.

When Nirvana´s Kurt Cobain inadvertently took his own life he left behind an army of shock rock fans. Nirvana and Cobain were the ones to put classic trash rock firmly on the map and sow the seeds for other young pretenders to follow. They were the mentors of Seattle sub-pop - and no one can say what direction their music would have taken, had Kurt lived on. Cobain says, ´´I started Nirvana because I had nothing else to do. I don´t like sports so a band seemed to be a last resort for something to do socially. Our songs are about changing your frustrations.´´ It didn´t take Nirvana long to build up a huge army of followers- and their albums sold by the truck loads. This is not an endorsed music release of the artist or record company and sound quality varies due to the nature of this live recording. This is a unique and timeless audiobiography which shows a larger than life Kurt Cobain who admits - ´´Although all my life I wanted to be a rock star - I don´t know whether I can handle the adulation of it all. I have to be given space.´´ Every music fan, collector and music buff must share this classic audio biog. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Bruen.

Much as it disappoints me, a Sherbet poster is my earliest memory of pop music fandom. It was given to me in exchange for two chocolate biscuits, and I can tell you who got the better of that deal. They were very nice chocolate biscuits. So begins Anthony Griffis´ fateful love affair with pop music, but by the 1980s he´s fed up with hairspray rock and the likes of Adam Ant and Duran Duran. Growing up in a country town where trucking songs rule the airways, he´s forced to bide his time with the solitary - and at times socially embarrassing - pursuit of air guitar. Until he finds himself in a real band, who never quite make it but whose misguided tilt at rock ´n´ roll glory is utterly hilarious. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Griffis.

Tess of the d´Urbervilles is the 19th century novel lately thought to be one of the inspirations of E .L.James´ Fifty Shades of Grey. It depicts the life of an impressionable, naive, somewhat educated young woman, who yearns to be free to live her own life, but finds herself constricted by the bonds of the sexual, religious and socially hypocritical customs that have surrounded her from birth. Considered a Victorian Realist, Thomas Hardy criticized social constraints on those living in the 19th and early 20th century through most of his novels. He was also a renowned poet and many of his works were set to music by notable English composers. He was an Anglican who questioned traditional Christian views and had difficulty reconciling the ´horrors of pain´ with the so called existence of a loving God. He also showed in his writings a fascination with the supernatural even as he held a strong emotional attachment to the Christian liturgy and rituals which were a major influence in his childhood. The narrator, Jennifer M. Dixon, is a board-certified Music Therapist and Licensed Counselor, veteran of Michigan Opera, Piccolo Opera and Community Theater. 1. Language: English.
