Kevin Bryan delivers his verdict on some of this week's CD releases.

Trapeze,"Trapeze" (Purple/Cherry Red)-Cherry Red's latest CD re-issue focusses attention on the 1970 debut album from Staffordshire rockers Trapeze. The band were the first signing to the Moody Blues' Threshold label, and the critically acclaimed "Trapeze" was produced by Moodies' bass player John Lodge. The contents showcase a heady blend of prog rock and psychedelia , fleshed out here with the addition of a string of bonus tracks, including demos, BBC sessions and recordings made for the "Colour Me Pop" TV show at Wolverhampton's Club Lafayette in July 1969 featuring covers of Fairport Convention's unofficial anthem "Meet On The Ledge" and Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride."

Kevin Burt,"Stone Crazy" (Gulf Coast Records)- Iowa born Kevin Burt has been electrifying audiences in America's Midwest with his visceral brand of electric blues for the past quarter of a century or so, and his latest album for Mike Zito's Gulf Coast Records provides an ideal introduction to this larger than life character's no frills approach to music making. Label supremo Zito chips in on guitar as well as handling the production duties here but Burt is very much the star of the show , and this self-taught performer's vocals are strangely reminiscent of the late lamented Bill Withers as he serves up soulful gems such as "Something Special About You," "Stone Crazy" and "Same Old Thing" for your listening pleasure.

Milos,"Sound of Silence" (Decca Records)- The latest offering from the good people at Decca is an eclectic collection showcasing the impeccable technique of classical guitarist Milos Karadaglic . The results are even more remarkable when you bear in mind that the Montenegro born virtuoso's career was temporarily curtailed by a serious hand injury just a few short years ago, and the tracks featured here form a personal scrapbook of his listening preferences during this period of inactivity. The contents range widely from much loved classical chestnuts to Milos' exquisite interpretations of memorable melodies from the pens of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and The Moody Blues' Justin Hayward to name but a few.
