New York Rock & Roll Ensemble Discography

Hi everybody! I am glad to post one of my favourite band here. There is a lot to say for that band but i am lazy on writting. :) So here is some copy paste from wiki: The band was formed by three Julliard students (Michael Kamen, Marty Fulterman ---now known as Mark Snow--- and Dorian Rudnytsky). Rudnytsky apparently introduced the others to two rock musicians (Brian Corrigan and Clif Nivison) from Toms River New Jersey where Rudnytsky went to high school. Reportedly, the group played together for the first time during a Halloween dance in 1967 at Julliard and were signed by Atlantic Records shortly thereafter. Their debut in discography was in 1968 with a self-named album. The New York Rock & Roll Ensemble broke the tradition by using classical music instruments in rock songs and rock instruments in classical pieces. This fusion, daring at the time, impressed legendary conductor Leonard Bernstein so much that he invited the group to appear at one of his Young People's Concerts with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra where they performed their signature song "Brandenburg" which was based on the first movement of Bach's Fifth Brandenburg Concerto. Brandenburg showed the group at their best: starting off with a "straight" rendition of Bach's music (featuring two oboes, guitar and cello); then migrating slowly but surely into a straight rock song all the while continuing to use Bach's original music for its musical base. Because Brandenburg was the one song that showed the widest range of their musicianship, the group typically performed that song when they made television appearances on The Tonight Show, The Steve Allen Show and similar TV shows of that era. Brandenburg appeared on the group's second LP "Faithful Friends". This LP had higher production values than their first and contained many of the songs that were part of their live act. Their third album, "Reflections", was the product of their collaboration with Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis. Because this album was such a great departure from their "classical/rock" roots, it apparently sold poorly when released. Ironically, this album is now the group's biggest selling album because it was re-released in Europe a number of years back and has apparently sold well since that time. In 2005 the well known and..Read more here

could you repost the NYRRE debut album and "Reflections?" Both were deleted for inactivity. If I get these my collection will be complete.

Thanks!
