    23. Mai. 2015, 11:28 von puremusic4ever

    A BRITISH MAN collected over 40,000 records – including vinyl singles and CDs – throughout his life, buying Top 40 chart hits every week from the 1950s to 2015.

    Now Keith Sivyer’s entire collection is going under the hammer following the 75-year-old’s death – and includes records by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Abba, and the Sex Pistols as well as many one-hit wonders.
    Ewbank Auctioneers, which is looking after the sale, has detailed music-lover and former DJ Sivyer’s dedication, explaining how his three-bed terraced house had thousands of pop records “neatly arranged on shelves around the rooms”.

    BREAKING NEWS: 'Stand By Me' singer Ben E. King dies

    (CNN)Singer Ben E. King, whose classic hit "Stand By Me" became an enduring testament of love and devotion for generations of listeners, has died.

    King died Thursday in New Jersey, his booking agent, Randy Irwin, told CNN. He was 76.

    Born in North Carolina, King first found success as an original member of the Drifters, the doo-wop group famous for such hits as "Save the Last Dance for Me."

    But he is remembered most for "Stand By Me," which was inspired by a gospel song. The tune was a top 10 hit in the U.S. in 1961 and returned to the charts 25 years later when it was prominently featured in "Stand By Me," Rob Reiner's 1986 coming-of-age movie about four adolescent boys.

    The song has been covered hundreds of times and has long been a staple at weddings.

    In March 2015 the Library of Congress inducted King's original version into the National Recording Registry, saying "it was King's incandescent vocal that made it a classic."

  • MEMORIAL GROUP: dmb.fm

    Hello, Last.fm Family. I have set up a "Last.fm" music group in memory of my late cousin. Please take a moment to check it out. This group is set up as a memorial to the life of Dexter Maurice Bryant (1963 - 2014). Dexter loved music and was a great musician who played keyboards, drums, trumpet, and bass. The artists represented in this group inspired Dexter to play music. He will be missed but not forgotten.

  • Newfoundland Vinyl in the MOCM

    13. Apr. 2015, 1:27 von Adrian22

    The Museum of Canadian Music is kindly featuring Allison Crowe’s “Newfoundland Vinyl” LP @

    http://citizenfreak.com/titles/324683-crowe-allison-newfoundland-vinyl



    The MOCM, curated and maintained by its founder Robert Williston and a core team, explains the mission of “the website is about the artists, the music, and the country of Canada that has produced such an enormous quantity of excellent off-the-radar titles that so many collectors worldwide are onto; but the general public has still not really caught onto - yet... the music on this site should satisfy the more refined connoisseur of Canadian music, especially when spinning vinyl is not so convenient for a world on the go...”

    Williston’s amassed the “largest private collection of Canadian music artifacts on earth” – and is making this cultural treasure – over 90,000 individual artifacts and roughly one million Canadian songs collected – public via the MOCM site.

    The museum’s domain - Citizenfreak.com – “honors a hometown Calgary band, the 49th Parallel, who recorded the cool single Citizen Freak in 1968”.

  • CELEBRATE!: Happy Resurrection Sunday!!!

    5. Apr. 2015, 13:55 von puremusic4ever

    Hello, Last.fm Family:

    Happy Resurrection Sunday!

    "After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came downstairs to from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you. So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” Matthew 28:1-10 (NIV)

    We celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ today! He came that we may have Life and have it more abundantly!

    I love you.

    Brian
