Shadows Of Paradise

Bottom/ Night Song is an album by qawwal Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and guitarist and producer Michael Brook, released in 1996. It was the last album on Real World Records that Khan lived to see finished. This album, along with Mustt Mustt, contributed tracks to the remix album Star Rise. This is perhaps the most experimental of Khan's albums, including Senegalese and classically trained musicians. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (1948 — 1997), was a Pakistani musician, primarily a singer of Qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufis (a mystical tradition within Islam). Nusrat's family has an unbroken tradition of performing qawwali for the last 600 years. Among other honorary titles bestowed upon him, Nusrat was called Shahenshah-e-Qawwali, meaning The Emperor of Qawwali. Middle/ Songs From The Victorious City (China Records, 1990) is an album in the world music genre written by Anne Dudley and Jaz Coleman, recorded in Cairo and London. It takes its name from Cairo itself, in Arabic القاهرة‎ (translit: al-Qahirah), literally "The Triumphant" or "The Victorious". Top/ Something Dangerous (Mantra Records, 2003) is the fifth album by Natacha Atlas. Natacha Atlas (born March 20, 1964) is a Belgian singer known for her fusion of Arabic and North African music with Western electronic music. She once termed her music "cha'abi moderne" (an updated form of Egyptian pop music). Her music has been influenced by many styles including Arabesque music, drum 'n' bass and reggae. Most of Atlas' albums have been produced by Transglobal Underground. Transglobal Underground (or TGU) is a London-based music collective who specialise in a fusion of western, oriental and African music styles (sometimes labelled as "world fusion" or "ethno-techno"), as in their 1991 single "Temple Head". Their first four albums featured Natacha Atlas as lead singer. Atlas was also the belly dancer for the group. She continues to focus on her Middle Eastern Eastern roots, as the titles of her albums imply: Diaspora (1995), Halim (1997) (in honour of Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez), Gedida (1998), Ayeshteni (2001) and Mish Maoul (an Egyptian expression meaning "unbelievable") (2006). Atlas was born to a father of Moroccan, Egyptian, Jewish, and Palestinian ancestry who was born in Jerusalem and a British mother who had converted to Islam. In 2001, she was appointed by Mary Robinson as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Conference Against Racism. Robinson chose Atlas because "she embodies the message that there is a strength in diversity. That our differences – be they ethnic, racial or religious – are a source of riches to be embraced rather than feared". On May 23, 2008 Atlas released a new album, Ana Hina.

Dipping Low (In The Lap Of Luxury)

Bottom/ The Smashing Pumpkins return with reunion album Zeitgeist (Reprise, 2007). The Smashing Pumpkins are an American alternative rock band that formed in Chicago in 1988. With approximately 18.25 million albums sold in the US alone, they were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s. Disavowing the punk rock roots shared by many of their alt-rock contemporaries, the Pumpkins have a diverse, densely layered, and guitar-heavy sound, containing elements of gothic rock, heavy metal, dream pop, psychedelic rock, arena rock, shoegazer-style production and, in later recordings, electronica. Frontman Billy Corgan is the group's primary songwriter—his grand musical ambitions and cathartic lyrics have shaped the band's albums and songs, which have been described as "anguished, bruised reports from Billy Corgan's nightmare-land". Corgan indicated that, with Zeitgeist, he wanted to make a mainstream rock record and comment on the political climate of the United States. Top/ American blues-rock band ZZ Top from Houston, Texas, unleashed Afterburner (Warner) in 1985. Starring guitar ace Billy Gibbons, the band originally gained wide acclaim with the classic, hard rockin' song "La Grange", referencing the bordello that is also the subject of the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. The band later went for a distinctive synthesizer-laced sound —a rarity in the blues rock genre —, which added a modern, electronic edge to the music. ZZ Top reached new heights of popularity with the 1983 album Eliminator, boosted to prominence by the tracks "Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Legs" and "Sharp Dressed Man".

Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned

Hank Williams (1923 – 1953) was an American singer-songwriter and musician who has become an icon of country music and one of the most influential musicians and songwriters of the 20th century. A leading pioneer of the honky tonk style, he had numerous hit records, and his charismatic performances and succinct compositions increased his fame. His songbook is one of the backbones of country music, and several of his songs are pop standards as well. He has been covered in a range of pop, gospel, blues and rock styles. His death at the age of twenty-nine helped fuel his legend. His son (Randall) Hank Williams, Jr., nicknamed 'Bocephus', his daughter Jett Williams, and his grandchildren (Shelton) Hank Williams III, Holly Williams, and Hilary Williams are also professional singers. Come September: An Introduction To Hank Williams (Mercury, 2003) is an anthology of 18 songs from the late country legend and contains "I Saw the Light" and "Ramblin' Man."
