va - Goodbye, Babylon [Dust-to-Digital, 2004] [C90 edit]

"In February 1999 a college radio disc jockey named Lance Ledbetter set out on a mission to compile rare and essential recordings of vintage religious music. Four and a half years later the result of this journey was released as a box set called Goodbye, Babylon. The set consists of five CDs featuring 135 Songs (1902-1960) and one CD featuring 25 Sermons (1926-1941). Accompanying the CDs is a 200 page book with Bible verses, complete lyric transcriptions, and notes for each recording. All of the components is reverently packed with raw cotton and housed in a deluxe 8" x 11" x 2.5" cedar box."[Dust-to-Digital]

Guess What - Yuri Gagarin [Catapulte Records, 2009]

"First long player for the London based instrumental duet formed by keyboardist Graham Mushnik and drummer Luke Warmcop, "Yuri Gagarin" offers twelve modern pieces dedicated to the legendary Russian astronaut. Over the course of tango, rebetiko or bossa signatures, a throng of harmonious cinematic themes combine with a deep groove and a pinch of psychedelia; all this livened up by whiffs of 60's proto-electronic music." [Catapulte Rds]

"Yuri Gagarin: 12 Modern Odes To History's Greatest Spaceman", the first Guess What Lp released in 2009. More info at CR website.
