Paul McCartney - Back in the USSR (1988) (Vinyl Rip)


Year: 1988 (LP 1988)
Label: Melodia Records (USSR), A60 00415 006
Style: Rock
Country: UK
Time: 38:58
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 270 Mb

(Back in the USSR; also known as The Russian Album) is the seventh solo studio album by Paul McCartney, originally released in 1988 exclusively in the Soviet Union. The album consists entirely of covers, mainly of rock and roll oldies (similar to John Lennon's 1975 album Rock 'n' Roll). With the addition of an extra track, it was released internationally in 1991.
McCartney originally wanted to release the album in the United Kingdom outside regular distribution channels, making it appear the album had been smuggled in from the Soviet Union. EMI turned down that idea. Nonetheless, McCartney's manager had a batch of LPs pressed, with Russian-language covers, as a Christmas present to McCartney. This gave McCartney the idea to release the album in the Soviet Union as a gesture of peace in the spirit of glasnost. An agreement was reached with the Soviet government-run record company Melodiya to license 400,000 copies of the album for release in the Soviet Union only with no exports.

Renaissance - Turn of the Cards (1974) (Vinyl Rip)


Year: 1974 (LP 1974)
Label: BTM Records (UK), BTM 1000 (SAS 7502)
Style: Symphonic Rock
Country: UK
Time: 41:00
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 251 Mb

Turn of the Cards is the fifth studio album by the British progressive rock band Renaissance, released in 1974. It was the last Renaissance studio album to include excerpts from existing classical pieces.
In the UK, this was the very first release (BTM 1000) on Miles Copeland's fledgling label, BTM Records (British Talent Managers). In 1977, after releasing a total of 10 albums, including 2 more by Renaissance (BTM 1006: Scheherazade and Other Stories, and the double LP, BTM 2001, Live at Carnegie Hall), the label folded due to bankruptcy.
The cover picture features Warwick Castle. The first BTM UK pressings had an alternate back cover, with a moody close-up portrait of Annie Haslam framed in one of the 'cards'. Later pressings, and in the US, a rather bland picture consistent in style and size with the other members portraits were added.
"Things I Don't Understand" was founder member Jim McCarty's last contribution to the band. "Running Hard" quotes a melodic phrase first used in "Mr. Pine" from the Illusion album, as well as the piece "Litanies" by French composer Jehan Alain. The music to "Cold Is Being" is taken entirely from "Adagio in G minor" (attributed to Tomaso Albinoni) and, contrary to the album credits, was not composed by Michael Dunford; it was, however credited in the back notes ("Thanks to Jehan Alain for the opening piece of RUNNING HARD and Albinoni for COLD IS BEING"). "Mother Russia" is cited by Jon Camp as being a case where he made major compositional contributions without being credited for them.

Andrew Lloyd Webber - Jesus Christ Superstar (1970) (Russian Vinyl)

Year: 1970 (LP 1991)
Label: AnTrop Records (USSR), П91 00029
Style: Rock-Opera
Country: UK
Time: 43:27, 42:50
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 287, 277 Mb

Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The album musical is a musical dramatisation of the last week of the life of Jesus Christ, beginning with his entry into Jerusalem and ending with the Crucifixion. It was originally banned by the BBC on grounds of being "sacrilegious.
Recording
The album's story is based in large part on the Synoptic Gospels and Fulton J. Sheen's Life of Christ, which compares and calibrates all four Gospels. However, greater emphasis is placed on the interpersonal relationships of the major characters, in particular, Jesus, Judas and Mary Magdalene, relationships that are not described in depth in the Gospels.
"Herod's Song (Try It and See)" is a lyrical rewrite of "Try It and See," previously written by Lloyd Webber and Rice as a proposed UK entry into the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest to be sung by Lulu, then recorded and released as a single by Rita Pavone. The writers had also included it (as "Those Saladin Days") in an aborted show called Come Back Richard Your Country Needs You.
The melody of "I Don't Know How to Love Him" also predates Superstar; it was rewritten from a 1968 Lloyd Webber/Rice collaboration titled "Kansas Morning."

Yes – Time and a Word (1970) (Russian Vinyl)


Year: 1970 (LP 1991)
Label: Russian Disc Records (USSR), R60 00507
Style: Symphonic Rock
Country: UK
Time: 40:05
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 255 Mb

Time and a Word is the second studio album by the English progressive rock band Yes, released on 24 July 1970 by Atlantic Records. Following the commercial failure of their first album, Yes, the group continued to follow their early musical direction of performing original material and cover versions of songs by pop, jazz, and folk artists. Time and a Word also includes songs with orchestral arrangements.
Time and a Word became the group's first release to enter the UK chart at #45. It however failed to chart in the US and received mixed reviews from critics. During their UK tour in April 1970, guitarist Peter Banks was fired from the group. By the time of the album's release, he was replaced by Steve Howe who is photographed with the group on the North American issue. In 2003, the album was remastered with several previously unreleased tracks.

Atomic Rooster - Atomic Roooster (1970) CD


Year: 1970 (CD 1991)
Label: Repertoire Records (Austria), RR 4135-WZ
Style: Progressive Rock
Country: UK
Time: 45:23
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 277 Mb

Atomic Roooster is the first album by British rock band Atomic Rooster.
A few weeks after its release, guitarist and vocalist John Du Cann joined and Nick Graham, the original vocalist and bassist, left. Du Cann subsequently overdubbed three of the album's tracks for a projected US release. However, in the event, the album never saw US release and the overdubbed tracks eventually surfaced on a second pressing of the album in the UK (though with no corrections to the album credits), and subsequent CD reissues.
On initial B&C pressings of the LP, tracks 3 and 4 on side 1 and tracks 3 and 4 on side 2 were mistakenly swapped around. This was also reflected on the record's labels, although the correct running order was printed on the outer sleeve.
