New CDs in Arts include Greatest Voices of Bolshoi, from the record library of Melbourne broadcaster, John Cargher.  There is the self-titled best seller from popular crooner Michael Buble, the classic album, Aja, from 70s rock band Steely Dan, and the multi-platinum Armed Forces by Elvis Costello and the Attractions.  Local pop identities Marcia Hines and Guy Sebastian feature on Freedom, a new release by the Melbourne Gospel Choir.

The Sea Hawk : the classic film scores of Erich Wolfgang Korngold is another album in the Classic Film Scores series – all feature great movie still covers.  Arcadia Lost highlights the music of Vaughan Williams & Benjamin Britten, performed by the Sydney Symphony and supporting artists.   One Hit Wonders is a compilation of music by classical composers who are household names, thanks to a single piece of music.

All of these and many more are currently available on Listening Posts 1, 4 & 7 in Arts.  You can listen to the entire CD or just select different tracks.
