(2014/Music On Vinyl) 28 Tracks. Limitierte Edition, nummeriert, 2x180g farbiges Vinyl, zwei farbige Beileger. Der Soundtrack zur Dramakomödie ´St. Vincent´ (u. a. mit Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy und Naomi Watts) ist eine unwiderstehliche Zusammenstellung von Evergreens und neuen Hits und beinhaltet unter anderem Songs von Bob Dylan, The National oder Jefferson Airplane. Dieses Release ist ein ganz besonders interessantes Paket: Neben den Songs zum Film gibt es dazu die original Score von Theodore Shapiro auf einer zweiten LP. Der Soundtrack umfasst dabei Klassiker aus den 60ern und 70ern, wie z. B. ´Shelter From The Storm´ aus dem Album ´Blood On The Tracks´ von Bob Dylan. Tweedy bietet zwei Tracks an: den Funksong ´Everybody Hides´, sowie die relaxtere Nummer ´Why, Why, Why´. Dazwischen kommt mit ´Somebody To Love´ von Jefferson Airplane ein straighter Track dazu. Der Song war der erste und größte Hit der Band und stammt aus dem Album ´Surrealistic Pillow´ aus dem Jahr 1967.
Noah Adams´s adventure in search of Wilbur and Orville Wright is a journey that takes him across the country as he follows in the footsteps of the famous brothers in an attempt to know them more deeply, not just as inventors and pilots but as individuals as well. Adams, one of our most distinctive and talented storytellers, traveled thousands of miles and interviewed scores of experts and individuals to piece together his story. He finds a local boat captain to ferry him to Kitty Hawk, along the same route that Wilbur took in 1900, and spends several days talking with descendants of the families who first welcomed the Wright brothers a century ago and helped them conduct their gliding experiments. To experience first-hand the thrill of being in the air, Adams himself goes hang-gliding in the Outer Banks. To understand the aerodynamics of lift and drag and how the famous 1903 plane was constructed, he visits the Virginia pilot and vintage aircraft builder who is creating the world´s most accurate reproduction of the 1903 Wright Flyer. He also travels to France to visit the old racetrack at Le Mans where Wilbur startled the European aviation community with his demonstration flights in 1908. In Adams´s book we encounter the Wright brothers in a way that no writer has introduced them before. Through the lens of his own experiences as well as original reporting, letters, diaries and other primary source material, he helps us understand the talent and intensity of the brothers and their family, including the fascinating, deeply complex, and at times tragic bond between Orville and Katharine, his younger sister. The Flyers is a wonderfully rich narrative that brings an unprecedented spirit of immediacy to one of history´s most dramatic stories. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Noah Adams.

The struggle between the Amalgamation and the evil Consortium heats up as rebels assault the planet Quatro Cinco. Lieutanant Nancy Coy (Marina Sirtis, Counselor Deanna Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation) is assigned to rehabilitate Kurk Manly - once the greatest and most handsome startship pilot in the galaxy, now reduced to a hopeless drunk - and put the interstellar kibosh on the rebellion. Deep dark plots, bone-rattling space battles, and rollicking Airplane-flavored humor combine with a wonderful original score to make this feature-length story a treat for the ears that will sweep you away! 1.
