...Democracy Act (1992) . On 5 February 1992 , US Congressman Robert Torricelli introduced the Cuban Democracy Act (CDA) with the expressed intent of “wreak[ing] havoc on the island.” The bill was passed by Congress on 15 October 1992 and signed into law by President George H. W. Bush on 23 October. This marked not only the tightening of US economic policy toward Cuba but also the shifting of primary authority over Cuban policy from the executive to Congress.

...Anthony - Wesleyan (12 Altosolos) 1992 It takes a brave man to stand on stage with one instrument and play solo for over 70 minutes, but in this live session recorded at Wesleyan University in Massachusetts on November 14, 1992, alto saxophonist Anthony Braxton does just that. Interestingly, Braxton plays not only his own compositions - as always identified only with numbers instead of titles - but a handful of jazz standards. These tunes, from hoary classics like ‘I’m Getting Sentimental Over You’ to the Charlie Parker chestnut ‘Charlie’s Wig’, are...

...Twin - Selected Ambient Works 1985-1992 Very occasionally in music, something will come at you from so far out on the left field, that not only do you not note its immediate import, you scarcely recognize it as music at all. This is the record that cemented the media’s fascination with Richard James, a Cornwall bedroom DJ. Selected Ambient Works is not an entirely representative recording, as these are essentially mood pieces, unlike the more instantaneous, dancefloor-targeted material that originally brought him to the nation’s attention. Nevertheless if...
