There's nobody better at writing songs for films which this collection of Kenny Loggins proves. Time to cut lose folks!

Please note that the majority of concerts by international artists have been postponed due to the Covid 19.
We will publish any rescheduled dates ASAP.

The dual guitars of Rodrigo y Gabriela are richer, warmer and more astonishing live than they are in the studio. 

Due to the Covid 19 outbreak, please
refer to Billboard's website for 
their current schedule.

Sony's series of Japanese Singles Collections delivers a surprising punch with this lot from REO Speedwagon. It's LOUD!

refer to Blue Note's website for 

their current schedule.

Review

Prog metal has progressed! Enjoyable and never bland from beginning to end, this is undoubtedly Haken's best album to date.
