  • Caetano Veloso, Brad Mehldau, k.d. lang, Emmylou Harris, Sufjan Stevens, Björk, Prince, James Taylor, and others reinterpret Joni. This lineup, says the New York Times, “does just about everything right … [They] take on Ms. Mitchell’s idiosyncratic songs with a balance of humility and chutzpah.” The Seattle Times raves: "Brilliance on brilliance."

  • This full-length recording of the landmark musical Dreamgirls featuring Tony Award winners Heather Headley, Audra McDonald, and Lillias White, among other luminaries of musical theater, was recorded live during a one-night-only Dreamgirls 20th Anniversary Benefit Concert for the Actors’ Fund in New York City on September 24, 2001. It is the first to contain all songs from the original Tony Award–winning production.

  • The soundtrack for Arliss Howard’s directorial debut features two new songs from Tom Waits and performances by some of the most vital practitioners of Mississippi hill-country blues—R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour, Asie Payton, Kenny Brown—who know "how to unleash the style's backwoods, primal oomph" (Daily News).

  • Apocalypse Now Redux, the 2001 version of Francis Ford Coppola's groundbreaking film with 53 minutes of never-before-seen footage, is set to the music of this revised and re-mastered soundtrack: Carmine Coppola's score; songs by The Doors, Mickey Hart, The Rhythm Devils; and, of course, Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries.

  • The soundtrack to Ken Burns's Baseball features music by Natalie Cole, Dr. John, Bruce Hornsby, Branford  Marsalis, and Carly Simon, as well as vintage recordings, historic radio calls, and the solo piano playing of Jacqueline Schwab. From "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" to "Hurrah for the National Game," Schwab's instrumental interludes weave an ongoing emotional thread through the film. 

  • The historically accurate music on this Grammy-winning soundtrack to Ken Burn’s PBS series, says GQ, "achieves an eloquence parallel to that of the narration, and it reinforces the visual illusion of aching, coming-to-life immediacy." Features the evocative "Ashokan Farewell."

  • In 1939, John Cage composed Imaginary Landscape No. 1 for two record players, piano, and percussion, ushering in the movement of live electronic music. This album includes recordings made at the 1988 Imaginary Landscapes festival in downtown Manhattan, among others, illustrating how far and wide electronic music had grown.

  • Composer Jürgen Knieper provides the score to Wim Wenders's 1987 film Wings of Desire, a winner at the Cannes Film Festival and dubbed the director's "most ambitious effort yet" by the New York Times. The soundtrack includes performances by Laurie Anderson and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
