The Ultimate Bobby Darin

For range and selection, this album remains the most thorough single-disc retrospective of legendary singer Bobby Darin, effectively capturing the stunning range of his unique musical vision. Each of its 17 songs is a gem, including “Splish Splash,” “Dream Lover,” “Mack the Knife” and “Beyond the Sea,” as well as “Somebody to Love” and “I’ll Be There.”

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road / Elton John

One of the most adventurous Elton John albums ever recorded, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” takes you on a thrilling musical journey that’s as catchy as is it eclectic. EJ soars on sing-along pop anthems like “Bennie and the Jets,” gets down-and-dirty on hard-driving rocker “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting,” and packs ballads like “Candle in the Wind” with heart-wrenching emotion.

The Man Who Walked Around the World

In his own words, David Kunst shares his incredible story as the first person to travel the globe on foot. It takes him four years and 21 pairs of shoes to cross four continents, covering a total of 14,500 miles. The achievement enables him to stroll into the “Guinness Book of Records.”

Lech Walesa: The Road to Democracy

In 1980, Lech Walesa pushed his way past the Polish police, climbed over a 12-foot wall and jumped onto a bulldozer, calling to Polish shipyard workers to continue their strike for higher wages and other demands. Walesa’s fiery speech inspired the workers and kept the strike alive. His call to action that day ultimately brought about important changes in Poland and established his leadership of the movement that became known as Solidarity.

Greatest Hits 1974-78 / Steve Miller Band

This album chronicles the best singles from Steve Miller’s most successful years, after he veered from Haight-Ashbury bluesy trippiness to more accessible blues-based pop-rock. There are the slippery grooves of “The Joker” and “Fly Like an Eagle,” and there’s the air-guitar-beckoning riff rock of “Take the Money and Run,” “Jungle Love,” “Rock n’Me,” and “Jet Airliner.”

L.A. Confidential

Just beneath the glamorous veneer of Hollywood gossip and movie stars lies a crime-ridden city corrupt to its core. Now, while investigating a brutal murder, three very different police detectives will rediscover a common bond of integrity in the blockbuster film noir thriller “L.A. Confidential.” Starring Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe and Kim Basinger.

Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Rick Bragg offers this rollicking, incendiary tale of the man who kick-started rock and roll and blazed a fiery trail strewn with heartache, happiness, regret and memorable music. Bragg sat down with Lewis over a period of two years and simply let Lewis tell his own story.

Purple Rain

After inviting his “dearly beloved” to the opening frenzy of “Let’s Go Crazy,” Prince leads us on a synth-driven, psycho-sexual odyssey that never lets up. Hits like “When Doves Cry” and the soulful title ballad became pop monuments. But the menacing fantasy of “Darling Nikki” and the pleading desperation of “Baby I’m a Star” give shape to this wildly adventurous and irrepressibly freaky masterpiece.

The Complete Book of Chevrolet Camaro, 2nd Edition

This is a Camaro book like no other, covering the entire production history of Chevrolet’s iconic muscle car, from the original concept car (codenamed ‘Panther’) to the latest and greatest sixth-generation vehicle. Author David Newhardt showcases every model of Camaro since 1967 in stunning detail, using original and GM archival photography as well as insider interviews and technical specifications.

Beyond the Limits: A Woman's Triumph on Everest

Stacy Allison was the first American woman to reach the highest point on Earth. In the face of interpersonal conflicts, grueling training, extreme physical demands and the constant threat of death, and with the personal challenge of leaving an abusive marriage, she achieved her goal. This is her story.

The Essential Gene Autry

Gene Autry, known as “The Singing Cowboy,” defined country music for two generations of listeners. His records sold more than 100 million copies and he earned more than a dozen gold and platinum records, including the first ever certified gold. He is the only entertainer with all five stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one each for Radio, Recording, Motion Pictures, Television, and Live Theatre/performance.

Blazing Saddles

A Mel Brooks classic starring Cleavon Little as the new lawman, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid, Brooks himself as a dim-witted politico and Madeline Kahn in her Marlene Dietrich send-up that earned an Academy Award nomination. All of them give this 1974 sagebrush saga their lunatic best.
