The U.K.'s BGO Records reissues three Al di Meola mid-'80s albums on a pair of CDs. First is the nearly smooth jazz Soaring Through a Dream released originally on EMI's Manhattan imprint in 1985 -- this album was an attempt by the great guitarist to score a hit single or two on the then-newly formed smooth jazz radio format. Next is the lightweight acoustic set Cielo e Terra, released during the same year, that is easily the best in this bunch, as it .contains a couple of fine tines such as the title track and "Atavism of Twilight." Finally, the 1987 offering, Tirami Su, was a half-hearted attempt by the guitarist to return to fusion -- the very thing that had established his reputation in the first place. A motley collection to be sure. ~ Thom Jurek
