(BBNC) Sly & The Family Stone: One of the most innovative groups popular music has ever known, a band that instigated a musical revolution! Led by Sylvester ´Sly Stone´ Stewart, The Family Stone´s personnel was black and white, and male and female, and black and white, making it likely the first fully integrated group in the history of popular music. Starting in 1966, their sound was a unique, unknown fusion of soul, jazz, rock, R&B and psychedelia. Sly himself was a master musician who wrote, arranged and produced all the group´s material, fashioning ingenious musical arrangements filled with syncopated rhythm, pop melody and unexpected harmony. This book covers the entire discography of Sly & The Family Stone. It is a complete career overview, from the first gospel recording by the Stewart Four, through to Sly´s most recent releases, as well as each members solo work in the years before and since, illustrated with vinyl releases from all over the world. It´s the book all Sly fans have been waiting for. As a special bonus, copies come with a 45 reproduction of the hyper-rare Stewart Four 78 from 1952.

On the night of the Parkhurst ball, someone had a scandalous tryst in the library. Was it Lord Canby, with the maid, on the divan? Or Miss Fairchild, with a rake, against the wall? Perhaps the butler did it. All Charlotte Highwood knows is this: It wasn´t her. But rumors to the contrary are buzzing. Unless she can discover the lovers´ true identity, she´ll be forced to marry Piers Brandon, Lord Granville - the coldest, most arrogantly handsome gentleman she´s ever had the misfortune to embrace. When it comes to emotion, the man hasn´t got a clue. But as they set about finding the mystery lovers, Piers reveals a few secrets of his own. The oh, so proper marquess can pick locks, land punches, tease with sly wit, and melt a woman´s knees with a single kiss. The only thing he guards more fiercely than Charlotte´s safety is the truth about his dark past. Their passion is intense. The danger is real. Soon Charlotte´s feeling torn. Will she risk all to prove her innocence? Or surrender it to a man who´s sworn to never love? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carmen Rose.

There was a time during Donald Davis´s college freshman year when he wasn´t really sure if he wanted to claim his hometown of Sulpher Springs, North Carolina. But a boy by the name of Stanley Easter changed his mind. ´´The year after that,´´ he recalls, ´´I did go home from college for Thanksgiving. In fact, I had now become so proud of where I was from that I could hardly wait to get home. I no longer had to lie about where I was from. The world of childhood was quickly becoming a dear place to visit.´´ This story of accepting one´s roots endears anyone who has ever thought twice about admitting where they came from. And Davis, in his sly narration, acknowledges that a whole lifetime of thoughts and attitudes can be rearranged in a single moment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donald Davis.

The Phantom Society (engl.)

zzgl. 3,50 € Versand

Welcome to Scotland, a country famous for its whisky, the Highlands, its castles, and, of course...its ghosts!The Phantom Society is a ghost-hunting game in which you play as sly spirits seeking to ruin a manor hotel or, if you prefer, intrepid ectoplasm hunters who are a bit destructive around the edges but who also never falter in pursuit of their prey. For the ghosts, the goal is to inflict at least £45,000 of damage (in tribute to Special 45 Old Faydhutee Single Malt) on the manor, whether it is inflicted by the ghosts or the hunters. The ghost hunters want to stop the ghosts before they achieve their objective.The dual-level game board represents a manor floor composed of 36 rooms, with each room being a tile representing a value from £1,000 to £6,000, each of the four ghosts corresponds to a room type and will hide beneath a tile of this type, starting its devastation of the hotel by removing tiles adjacent to the one it´s hidden beneath. The ghost hunters must try to determine where the ghosts are hiding based upon the tiles destroyed. While doing this, though, the ghost hunters will also remove tiles thus destroying them and adding to the total damage to see whether a ghost is hidden beneath.The ghost hunters must think carefully and logically over which tiles to remove while the ghosts have to use cunning and psychology in order to cloud their investigation and remain concealed. Will the manor come through this madness intact?

Hurricane

Man denkt, sie müsse zwischendurch auf dem Mond gelebt haben. Fragt man sie, wo sie nach all den Jahren plötzlich herkommt, sagt sie tatsächlich: ´´Aus dem Universum.´´ Das ist keine Lüge, alle Menschen kommen aus dem Universum. Trotzdem spricht die Antwort dafür, dass sich Grace Jones, die zackigste und allürenhafteste aller Achtziger-Diven, ihre ganz eigene Perspektive auf die Welt und das Leben bewahrt hat. Dass sie plötzlich wieder in Ballonkleidern und extravaganten Kopfbedeckungen auf Konzertbühnen performt, schien schon Überraschung genug. Noch überraschender allerdings die Tatsache, dass sich nun, im Herbst 2008 jenes neue Album materialisiert, um das sich zwischendurch immer wieder Gerüchte rankten, das dann aber doch nie erschien. Jetzt ist es soweit: ´´Hurricane´´ ist Grace Jones´ zehnter Longplayer. Man muss dieses Album verstehen als Statement einer Frau, die noch lange nicht fertig ist mit sich und ihrem Ruf als männermordendes Relikt des Concorde-Jetsets. Man erinnert sich: ´´Bulletproof Heart´´, das letzte Album der im Mai 1948 in Jamaika geborenen Sängerin, erschien 1989. Weltgeschichtlich betrachtet bedeutet das: In den 19 Jahren ihrer Abwesenheit vereinten sich Ost- und Westdeutschland, vernetzte sich die Welt mit Mobilfunk und Internet, es gab Techno, Kriege und Klimawandel, und das System Pop erlebte seine bislang schwerste Sinn- und Finanzkrise. Die Leerstelle blieb immer spürbar: In all den Jahren kam keine, die Grace Jones hätte ersetzen können. Sie hätte natürlich auch für immer Glamourlegende bleiben können: die nackte Amazone in den Armen von Dolph Lundgren in ´´Conan, der Zerstörer´´, das Partygirl an Andy Warhols Seite im Studio 54, das Model auf den Laufstegen der größten Designer, die Muse unter dem Skalpell des visionären französischen Illustrators Jean-Paul Goude. ´´Warm Leatherette´´, ´´I´ve Seen That Face Before (Libertango)´´, ´´Pull Up To The Bumper´´ und ´´Slave To The Rhythm´´, ihre unvergessenen Hits wären auch ohne ihr Zutun immer weiter gesamplet, zitiert und als Klassiker gelistet worden. Warum also nun Neues? Warum Gefahr laufen, die Legende mit einer neuen Realität zu überschreiben, den Mythos unwiederbringlich zu zerstören? Wer so denkt, denkt wie ein normaler Mensch. Grace Jones ist kein normaler Mensch. So wie sie schon immer >from another time ´´Hurricane´´ ist im Herbst 2008 ein Werk, dem kein bisschen von der Unsicherheit anzuhören ist, die neue Alben jener Popstars dominiert, die befürchten, zwischen Einmottung und Comebackversuch den Anschluss verpasst zu haben. Warum sollte Grace Jones es genauso falsch machen? Unterstützt von Brian Eno, der hier als musikalischer Berater fungiert, und dem Co-Produzenten Ivor Guest, glänzt ´´Hurricane´´ mit zeitlosem Songwriting, ebenso zeitlosen Dub-Schleifen und dem noch heute visionären Mix aus Reggae, Chanson und coolem Breitwand-Pop, der bereits ihre größten Alben ´´Nightclubbing´´ (1981) und ´´Slave To The Rhythm´´ (1985) auszeichnete. Es ist kein krampfhaftes Suchen nach der neuen Formel: Da ist der glänzende Gospelsolitär ´´William´s Blood´´, in dem sich Jones, die mittlerweile parallel in London und New York lebt, auf Seelensuche ins Kingston ihrer Kindheit begibt; da ist der lakonisch schunkelnde Reggae von ´´Well Well Well´´, den sie mit Sly & Robbie, den legendären Rhythm Twins aus Kingston, aufs Band gejammt hat; da ist die umwerfende Single ´´Corporate Cannibal´´, zu der Jones ein unvergessliches Musikvideo gedreht hat, welches seit Anfang Juli auf YouTube Furore macht und in dem sie zugleich als personifiziertes Kapital und als Alien Queen wütet. Außerdem: der düster schnaubende Titeltrack ´´Hurricane´´, den sie zusammen mit Tricky geschrieben hat; und nicht zuletzt ´´Love You To Life´´, ein Stück, in dem Jones, unterstützt von einem satten Orchesterarrangement, das in den Londoner Abbey Road Studios eingespielt wurde, das Geheimnis ihrer ungebrochenen Strahlkraft verrät: Sie sei ´´attracted to immorality, a magnet to immortality´´, murmelt die Diva hier beschwörend. Zeit und Zeitlosigkeit. Ein Körper, eine Stimme, ein Look. Unendliches Vertrauen in die eigene Einzigartigkeit. So wie ein Hurrikan alles hinfort fegt, was sich ihm in den Weg stellt, so beseitigt ´´Hurricane´´ sämtliche Zweifel, die man eben möglicherweise noch hatte. Übrig bleibt nichts außer Begeisterung. Und die Freude, sie endlich wieder willkommen zu heißen: ´´Ladies and Gentlemen: Miss Grace Jones.´´ Titel: This Is Williams´ Blood Corporate

Moneyball

Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball. Following the low-budget Oakland Athletics, their larger-than-life general manger, Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts, Michael Lewis has written not only ´´the single most influential baseball book ever´´ (Rob Neyer, Slate) but also what ´´may be the best book ever written on business´´ (Weekly Standard). I wrote this book because I fell in love with a story. The story concerned a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives, many of whom had been rejected as unfit for the big leagues, who had turned themselves into one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. But the idea for the book came well before I had good reason to write it-before I had a story to fall in love with. It began, really, with an innocent question: how did one of the poorest teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, win so many games? With these words Michael Lewis launches us into the funniest, smartest, and most contrarian book since, well, since Liar´s Poker. Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can´t buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the front offices of major league teams, and the dugouts, perhaps even in the minds of the players themselves. Lewis mines all these possibilities-his intimate and original portraits of big league ballplayers are alone worth the price of admission-but the real jackpot is a cache of numbers-numbers!-collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers and physics professors. What these geek numbers show-no, prove-is that the traditional yardsticks of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. Even the box score misleads us by ignoring the crucial importance of the humble base-on-balls. This information has been around for years, and nobody inside Major League Baseball paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland Athletics. Billy paid attention to those numbers -with the second lowest payroll in baseball at his disposal he had to-and this book records his astonishing experiment in finding and fielding a team that nobody else wanted. Moneyball is a roller coaster ride: before the 2002 season opens, Oakland must relinquish its three most prominent (and expensive) players, is written off by just about everyone, and then comes roaring back to challenge the American League record for consecutive wins. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Michael Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win... how can we not cheer for David?
