Mary Poppins [Movie] - Mary Poppins Returns [Soundtrack] Mary Poppins [Movie] - Mary Poppins Returns [Soundtrack]
New CD: $13.99   $11.99

In Disney's "Mary Poppins Returns," an all new sequel with a fresh sensibility that celebrates the spirit of the original, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Emily Blunt ("The Girl on the Train," "Into the Woods") stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda ("Hamilton," "Moana") plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light and life to the streets of London. "Mary Poppins Returns" is directed by Rob Marshall ("Into the Woods," "Chicago"). The screenplay is by David Magee ("Life of Pi") and the screen story is by Magee & Marshall & John DeLuca ("Into the Woods") based upon the "Mary Poppins" stories by PL Travers. The producers are DeLuca, Marshall and Marc Platt ("La La Land") with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer and the music is by Marc Shaiman ("Hairspray") with songs by Shaiman and Scott Wittman ("Hairspray"). The film also stars Ben Whishaw ("Spectre") as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer ("Hugo") as Jane Banks; Julie Walters ("Harry Potter" films) as the Banks' housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth ("The King s Speech") as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank's William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep ("Florence Foster Jenkins") as Mary's eccentric cousin, Topsy and introduces three new Banks' children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth's character.

PL Travers first introduced the world to the no-nonsense nanny in her 1934 children's book "Mary Poppins." However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other PL Travers' books...until now. "Mary Poppins Returns" is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. The film takes place in 1930s Depression-era London 24 years after the original film was set. Michael Banks works for the same financial institution that employed his father and still lives at 17 Cherry Tree Lane with his three children, Annabel, John and Georgie and their housekeeper Ellen. Carrying on in her mother's tradition, Jane Banks campaigns for workers' rights and provides a helping hand to Michael's family. When the family suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppins magically re-enters their lives and with Jack's help, brings joy and wonder back into their home.

Jason Becker - Triumphant Hearts [LP] Jason Becker - Triumphant Hearts [LP]
New Vinyl: $24.98

Jason Becker’s story is one of brilliance, talent, determination, adversity, and triumph. A child prodigy on guitar, Jason rose to prominence as a teenager when he was one half of the legendary shred duo Cacophony (with his great friend Marty Friedman). After wowing audiences all over the word with his amazing guitar chops and deep compositions, Jason auditioned for—and got—the gig with David Lee Roth’s band, following in the huge footsteps of Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai. He wrote and recorded the DLR album, A Little Ain’t Enough, and was poised to take over the rock guitar world until a nagging pain in his leg was diagnosed as ALS. Jason did indeed lose the ability to play guitar, walk, talk, and breathe on his own, but he never lost his will to live or his desire to create music. In fact, he’s busier and more prolific than ever, as evidenced by his latest release, Triumphant Hearts. The album’s 13 tracks showcase Jason’s gift for melody and his deep knowledge of classical composition and orchestral arrangement. Many of the guitar parts are performed by a who’s-who of 6-string gods including Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Neal Schon, Steve Morse, Paul Gilbert, Joe Bonamassa, and many others. These amazing musicians help Jason realize his vision on the best material of his career. Speaking on the creation of the record, Jason stated, “when I wrote 'Triumphant Hearts', it made me feel triumphant.” He continues, “Some people feel sorry for me, and I understand that. but, I really feel lucky though. I am grateful for the fact that I am surrounded by loving people, and I can still make music.”

Legends of the indie Oz Rock scene The Go-Betweens provided a soundtrack to a generation of music enthusiasts throughout the 80's developing a unique and compelling combination of song writing both angst ridden and sensitive that eluded the mainstream and all the trappings of popular success. Four decades in the making The Go-Betweens: Right Here explores the quintessential Aussie band from formation in 1977 by Queensland University students Robert Forster and Grant McLennan, joined by Lindy Morrison on drums until the band broke up in late 1989, after six critically acclaimed albums. They reformed in 2000 for three more albums before McLennan died in 2006, aged 48. Part memoir, part concert film, The Go-Betweens: Right Here reveals how the dreams, art and love shared between the two founding members of The Go-Betweens still endures and continues to inspire, even after death. Directed by Kriv Stenders The Go-Betweens: Right Here is a raw and fascinating trip down memory lane and a tribute to a remarkable musical partnership.
