12-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 220-seitigem gebundenem Buch, 307 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer ca. 933 Minuten. Das bedeutendste Einzelereignis in der Geschichte der Country Musik. ´So charakterisierte Johnny Cash die erste Aufnahmesession der Carter Family aus dem Jahre 1927, aufgenommen in Bristol, Tennessee. Diese und alle weiteren Aufnahmen der Carter Family von 1927 bis 1941 sind in dieser Box enthalten. Ihre anglo-keltischen Balladen, Mountain Songs, Blues und Popsongs der damaligen Zeit, die alle zusammen die Basis der heutigen Country-Musik bilden, so eindringlich und gefühlvoll vorgetragen, wie dies eben nur die Carter Family konnte. Die Menschen auf dem Land sind immer schon religiös und gefühlvoll gewesen´, erklärte das Familienoberhaupt der Carter Family, A.P. Die 307 Lieder in dieser, in ihrer Vollständigkeit einzigartigen 12-CD Edition belegen diese Einschätzung. Alle Aufnahmen der Carter Family für Victor, ARC, Decca, APS, Columbia, Bluebird sind hier komplett enthalten. Hören sie die Originalversionen von Klassikern wie Wildwood Flower , Wabash Cannon Ball, The Storms Are On The Ocean und natürlich Will The Circle Be Unbroken . Zahlreiche dieser Aufnahmen finden hier erstmals ihren Weg auf CD. Die Tonqualität dieser zeitlosen Klassiker konnte mittels digitaler Nachbearbeitung verbessert werden, ohne die Ursprünglichkeit des Klangs zu berühren. Alle derzeit bekannten Fotos der Carter Family sind ebenso enthalten wie Privatbilder aus Mother Maybelles Fotoalbum und aus dem Besitz von Janette Carter, davon einige bislang unveröffentlicht. Der herausragende Country Musik Historiker Charles Wolfe steuert eine neu recherchierte Biographie der Carter Family bei. ´Diese Aufnahmen sind zeitlose Wegbereiter´, schreibt Wolfe. ´Sie sind ebenso elementar wie der Wind oder das Wasser und besitzen die gleiche, simple Schönheit wie die Landschaft von Poor Valley (der Heimat der Carters). Man kann den Einfluss der Carter Family auf die Country Musik und die amerikanische Musik im Allgemeinen gar nicht hoch genug einschätzen.´ Die Box enthält ein 1963 aufgenommenes Interview von Ed Kahn und Mike Seeger mit Maybelle und Sara. Die Einleitung wurde von Johnny Cash geschrieben.

Shadow , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 6min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This classic short story by beloved author Edgar Allan Poe features a deeply dark undercurrent as it is told by a storyteller who has been dead for many centuries. We can´t know all that happened, but there is much to consider: plague, separation from humanity, and the oppression of man. This story can be understood only when considering that the storyteller could not be expected to know how to describe everything due to the passage of time. Perhaps that´s what makes the story one with a wealth of material to consider. Narrated by Glenn Hascall. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Glenn Hascall.

The Shadow-Line , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 297min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Written at the start of the Great War, when his son Borys was at the Western Front, The Shadow-Line is Conrad´s supreme effort to open man´s eyes to the meaning of war through the stimulus of art. In many ways an autobiographical narrative, this masterpiece of his final period relates the story of a young and inexperienced sea captain whose first command finds him with a ship becalmed in tropical seas and a crew smitten with fever. As he wrestles with his conscience and with the sense of isolation that his position imposes, the captain crosses the ´´shadow-line´´ between youth and adulthood. It is the qualities, both individual and collective, needed to confront the ship´s crisis that symbolize the qualities needed by humanity, not only to face evil and destruction but also to come to terms with life. 1.

The Compleat Angler , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 108min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The greatest classic of angling literature and a unique celebration of the English countryside, Izaak Walton´s The Compleat Angler was originally published in 1653. No book, apart from the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer, has been more often reprinted. As a treatise on the art of fishing it has never wholly been superseded. For its advice on the catching and cooking of fish, the rules for baits, and the making of artificial flies, it remains a valuable and engrossing guide. As a graceful and affectionate portrait of rural England its charm is irresistible and in Walton we could not wish for a more congenial companion. Read by Richard Johnson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Johnson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bbcw/005928/bk_bbcw_005928_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

War Poems, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 134min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This powerful and moving anthology includes poems of war from the 18th century to our own days in the long shadow of the bomb. The poets evoke the glory and the horror, the exhilaration and the despair, the humanity and the insanity of war. The selection of poems, both familiar and less so, provides an illuminating context both for the bitter denunciation of Wilfred Owen´s ´´Dulce et Decorum Est´´ and for Katherine Tynan´s portrayal of the First World War as necessary, just, and Christian, while other poems consider the devastating impact of war on those friends, family, and loved ones who remain behind. The collection also includes works by Anne Finch, Louisa Costello, Byron, Tennyson, Kipling, Hardy, Graves, Sassoon, Brooke, Jessie Pope, May Wedderburn Cannan, Walt Whitman, Henry Reed, Adrian Mitchell, and Roger McGough among many others. 1.

The Merchant of Venice: Arkangel Shakespeare, H...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Shakespeare´s most controversial play, the opposing values of justice and mercy must be resolved. Antonio promises money to help his friend Bassanio woo Portia. He borrows the sum needed from the cruel Shylock, but there will be a dreadful penalty if the loan is not repaid. The golden world of Portia´s Belmont calls forth some of Shakespeare´s most lyrical love poetry. But the dark shadow of Shylock is never far from the heart of this brilliant comedy as it moves toward its courtroom climax. Portia is played by Hadyn Gwynne and Shylock by Trevor Peacock. Julian Rhind-Tutt is Bassanio, and Bill Nighy is Antonio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Peacock, Bill Nighy, Haydn Gwynne, Julian Rhind-Tutt.
