The Beatles 1967-1970 (The Blue Album)

Released just three years after the band’s official break-up, “The Blue Album” put The Beatles’ later-year tracks into one package (released simultaneously with “The Red Album”) featuring key songs from the group’s albums as well as standalone singles.

Kind of Blue / Miles Davis

From the opening bass vamp of “So What” to the muted trumpet lines on “Blue in Green,” from the slow groove of “All Blues” to the sentimental “Flamenco Sketches,” “Kind of Blue” is ingrained in every jazz musician’s DNA. And for good reason: These simple, haiku-like song sketches cover the range of human emotion. Davis’ cool trumpet work is complemented by the fiery saxophones of John Coltrane and Julian ‘Cannonball’ Adderley, while the rhythm section swings like mad.

Cosmos

“Cosmos” is one of the bestselling science books of all time. In clear-eyed prose, author Carl Sagan reveals a jewel-like blue world inhabited by a life form that is just beginning to discover its own identity and to venture into the vast ocean of space.

TYMURS: The 1982 Tylenol Murders

Seven people died near Chicago in 1982 after taking cyanide-laced Tylenol capsules. The Tylenol murders case — the most extensively covered news story since the assassination of John F. Kennedy — has perplexed federal, state, and local authorities for decades. Now, this riveting expose tells the story not reported in the news media of an inquiry led astray from the start and marred by the mishandling and destruction of evidence.

The Very Best of Ben E. King

From the groundbreaking orchestrated productions of the Drifters to his own solo hits, Ben E. King was the definition of R&B elegance. His approach influenced countless smooth soul singers in his wake, and his records were key forerunners of the Motown sound.

Lone Star

One of the most acclaimed movies of the 90s. The more a lawman probes into a long-ago murder, the more he uncovers layers of family and racial strife that divide this Texas border town.  Starring: Chris Cooper, Kris Kristofferson, Matthew McConaughey and Elizabeth Pena. Directed by John Sayles.
