Back in black by AC/DC (Musical group)( Recording )
17 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fast jede andere Band hätte durch den Verlust ihres Sängers mindestens einen happigen Karriere-Knick hinnehmen müssen. Nicht so AC/DC. Im Gegenteil! -- Nach dem tragischen Tod von Bon Scott (erstickte im Februar 1980 nach einer ausgedehnten Sauftour an seinem Erbrochenen) überraschten die Australier mit dem neuen Sänger Brian Johnson und ihrem bisher grössten Erfolg <<Back in Black>>, mit rund 45 Millionen Exemplaren das meistverkaufte Hard Rock-Album überhaupt. Und das trotz der immer noch beachtlichen <<Nurechtmitbonscott>>-Fraktion unter den AC/DC-Fans. -- Bei AC/DC ergibt die Gitarren-Arbeit der Brüder Angus und Malcolm Young, sowie der Rhythmus-Teppich von Bassist Cliff Williams und Schlagzeuger Phil Rudd, ein dermassen solides, tragendes und in seiner direkten Wirkung nicht zu überbietendes Fundament, dass der Sänger fast zweitrangig wird (aber natürlich schon der Schlagrahm auf der Torte ist). -- Alles ist auf den Punkt gespielt, druckvoll, explosiv, schnörkellos, kein Ton zuviel, minimaler (technischer) Aufwand, maximale Wirkung. Jeder Song ein Klassiker, jeder Song eine Hymne. Und zeitlos. (Quelle:, 16.10.2008)
What is music? ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last ship by Sting( Recording )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Last Ship' is inspired by Sting's forthcoming play of the same name and explores the central themes of homecoming and self-discovery, drawing upon his memories of growing up in the shadow of the Swan Hunters Shipyard in Wallsend. His personal reminiscences illuminate universal truths - the complexity of relationships, the passage of time and the importance of family and community - to form an affecting, complex parable for our modern times. The play, in which Sting has been creatively immersed for nearly three years, debuts on Broadway in 2014 and is a collaboration with Tony Award winners Joe Mantello (director; Wicked, Other Desert Cities), John Logan (writer; Red, Skyfall)) and Brian Yorkey (writer; Next to Normal). The Last Ship tells the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in 1980s Newcastle which had, for so long, shaped and overshadowed the city, its development, and its community

Two groups of instruments use strings as the primary source of sound: those in which plucking sets the strings in vibration, and the bowed strings. This program shows how the demand for more powerful sounds was met, and examines the instruments of Stradivari to determine what science can and cannot reveal about their magic. It also examines the ways in which scientific methods complement the skill of craftsmen in making instruments. (60 minutes)

Scales, synthesizers & samplers ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This program covers such problems as the production of varying degrees of loudness on harpsichords and spinets, the mechanical engineering of the modern piano, the origin of scales, and the inability of keyboard instruments to produce scales in all keys exactly in tune. Synthesizers demonstrate both the problem and its solution. The progression is from electronic organs to analogue synthesizers, from purely electronic oscillations to the addition, subtraction, multiplication, mixing, and performance of additional functions that comprise the complex sounds of music. The program also looks at digital sound and musique concrète, using the BBC Radiophonic Workshop to answer some of the questions about the partnership between science and music."--Container
Technology, trumpets & tunes ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Despite its title, this program actually covers all the wind instruments, including the pipe organ. It considers the way in which the technology of making instruments has affected the course of musical development, particularly the development of valves for trumpets and Boehm's system of woodwind keys. The program examines the subject of vibrations in tubes, the role of finger holes, and the components of tone quality. It concludes by putting a camera inside a large church organ to show what happens inside this marvelous combination of thousands of pipes, hundreds of yards of pneumatic tubing or electric cables, and countless valves or relays in response to the movements of the organist's hands and feet."--Container
