Father’s Day Deals
June 20, 2015
For the first time ever, the essential hits by Paul Simon and Simon & Garfunkel are available on one album – ‘The Ultimate Collection: Paul Simon’. The stunning CD spans the great man’s whole career, showcasing the immense talent of one the most influential songwriters and artists of all time.
Iconic singles You Can Call Me Al, Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes, Me & Julio Down By The School Yard, The Boxer and Bridge Over Troubled Water all feature, as well as The Sound of Silence and Mrs Robinson from the equally timeless film, The Graduate. And that’s just the start!
Never before has the true scale of Paul Simon’s career been this obviously laid out, and the full range of his style so beautifully bought together.
Glenn Miller was an enormously popular jazz bandleader. This Very Best Of collection is a beautifully re-mastered compilation, charting the brief but hugely prolific and successful career of the leader one of the best known “Big bands”. His signature recordings In the Mood, American Patrol, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Tuxedo Junction, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug and Pennsylvania 6-5000 all feature, having been beautifully remastered to sound more crisp and beautiful than ever before.
Glenn Miller was one of the best-selling recording artists from 1939 to 1943. But he was more than that. To many people, Glenn Miller’s Big Band were the sound of America in the Swing Era, and to many more he soundtracked the United States during the Second World War. We may be a little biased, but we think it would make the perfect Father’s Day gift because these classic recordings – best exemplified by the timeless In the Mood – have taken on a life on their own, and the memories they invoke span generations. This collection sounds astonishing, with unparalleled sound quality, making it the perfect stroll down memory lane to best celebrate the big-band genre’s most iconic musician.
