Top Of The WorldSlightly Stoopid's Top of the World continues the onward and upward trend within the band members' musicianship, while bringing the purity and energy of their live shows into the studio for recording sessions. Top of the World is most comparatively aligned with Slightly Stoopid's 2005 studio release of Closer to the Sun, except now the addition and solidification of both trumpet and saxophone are more profound. This is certainly not a step backwards, if anything, Slightly Stoopid enhanced their sound ten fold from their most successful album of all time.
Top of the World contains everything a music enthusiast will adore long after the first spin of the album. Whether the listener adores the hip-hop beats of the album's title track, the uplifting horns on "Don't Stop", the pure roots-reggae style of "Work", or the soulful cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire," Top of the World has all the necessary qualities of an instant classic.
To take the album to another level, Slightly Stoopid invited a whole host of musical studs in their own right with Barrington Levy on "Ur Love", "Ska Diddy" featuring Angelo Moore of Fishbone, "Just Thinkin" featuring Chali 2na, "Mona June" featuring Angela Hunte, "Hiphoppablues" with G. Love, and the legendary Jamaican singer and songwriter Don Carlos on "Marijuana".
The band name Slightly Stoopid doesn't initially give off the sense of soothing melodies, full-brained lyricism and heartfelt tracks from beginning to end, but that is exactly what Top of the World portrays to the listener. Slightly Stoopid's seventh studio album is the band's most complete and all encompassing sound ever tracked, and they recorded it organically in their own studio on their own time.
If you are looking for a 21-track album that will keep the sense of feel good summer vibes alive long into the fall and winter seasons, then Top of the World is the ideal remedy to bring the sound of Ocean Beach, California right to your side. -- Reviewed By: Kris Siuta1. Top Of The World

Callas Portrays Verdi Heroines (Studio Recital)Coinciding with the new Callas Live Remastered Edition, the cataloger's 2017 priority, Warner Classics re-releases two of Maria Callas' legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using the state of the art remastering done in 2014.
This recital brings together three operas from the earlier years of Verdi's career (Nabucco, Ernani and Macbeth) and one of his greatest mature masterpieces (Don Carlo). Callas sang all of them on stage apart from Ernani, and Lady Macbeth proved a triumph for her when she opened La Scala's season in December 1952.
Gramophone greeted this recital by saying: Mme Callas has seldom had such a field day and her dramatic instinct is well-nigh perfect in interpreting these wonderful pages, each characterized convincingly - and differently.1.

Count Me In (Awaiting Repress)For the SoCal-based band's fourth full-length independent release, Rebelution has aimed to instill a sense of community, choosing the phrase "Count Me In" as the album's title, representing each member's strong belief in a sense of community and collaboration. "Over the past ten years as an independent band," vocalist/guitarist Eric Rachmany explained, " we have felt a strong connection to the many people who have been incredibly supportive, and could not be more thankful to be a part of such a like-minded, positive and inspiring community."
Released through Rebelution's own label, 87 Music, in partnership with Easy Star Records. Count Me In was recorded between September and December of 2013 in Miami at Inner Cirlce's Circle House Studios and in Burbank, CA at Steakhouse Studios. To mix and master the new album, Rebelution was fortunate enough to work with Grammy Award winning Bernie Grundman Mastering and Legendary Reggae producer/sound engineer Errol Brown, Rebelution's touring engineer and a man who helped shape the Treasure Isle sound before working with Bob Marley & The Wailers at Tuff Gong Studios.
"From writing these songs to mixing and mastering the album, we were involved in every step We're becoming comfortable expressing ourselves, both in the studio and on stage. This album was truly fun to make, it's an honest expression of who we are" revealed Rachmany, and while much of the production was done by the band independently, Rebelution utilized the Reggae-Rock community whole-heartedly to create Count Me In.
The album features special guest appearances, one by dancehall singer Collie Buddz on the track "Hate To Be The One" and legendary Roots-Reggae vocalist Don Carlos on "Roots Reggae Music". Both collaborations are special pairings for the band as Buddz has toured with Rebelution in the recent past, and Carlos has been an enormous vocal influence on Rachmany.
The music and lyrical content varies through the album, providing positive inspiration, encouraging fans to create a pro-active and optimistic impact on society and life. Rachmany continues, "A lot of what we hear every day is that money measures success This new album is a reminder to spread love and positivity to the people around us, these are the true measures of success."
Originally formed in Santa Barbara, CA in 2004, Rebelution's strong do-it-yourself mentality, relentless touring and deep connection to their fan base via social media, has led them to being one of the best-selling reggae artists on the planet.
Since the 2007 release of Courage to Grow, the band's first full-length album, Rebelution's music has been praised for its crafty melodies, socially-conscious lyrics and savvy musicianship. In 2009, Rebelution continued to blaze their path delivering a second record, 2009's Bright Side of Life and then a triple disc release with Peace Of Mind in January of 2012; A record that debuted at #1 on Billboard's Reggae and Independent charts, and at #13 on the Top 200 Albums chart.1.
