Press is the debut album from American ska punk band MU330, released in 1994.
According to the band's website, Press was recorded in the basement of saxophonist Matt Knobbe's parents' house in late 1993. The album was first released independently in 1994 on the band's own label, NO Record Co., before being picked up and re-issued by Moon Ska Records later the same year. In 1997, when MU330 moved to Asian Man Records, Press was re-released with two additional tracks, both unrecorded Press-era songs recorded by the band's 1996 line-up.
Press was the only MU330 studio album to feature vocalist/trumpeter John Kavanaugh and saxophonist Matt Knobbe, who both left the band shortly afterwards. On December 31, 2011, the original Press-era line-up reunited at the Firebird club in St. Louis to perform the album in its entirety.
In white wine production, pressing usually takes place immediately after crushing and before primary fermentation. In red wine production, the grapes are also crushed but pressing usually doesn't take place till after or near the end of fermentation with the time of skin contact between the juice and grapes leaching color, tannins and other phenolics from the skin. Approximately 60-70% of the available juice within the grape berry, the free-run juice, can be released by the crushing process and doesn't require the use of the press. The remaining 30-40% that comes from pressing can have higher pH levels, lower titratable acidity, potentially higher volatile acidity and higher phenolics than the free-run juice depending on the amount of pressure and tearing of the skins and will produce more astringent, bitter wine.
Telecom Argentina is the major local telephone company for the northern part of Argentina, including the whole of the city of Buenos Aires. Briefly known as Sociedad Licenciataria Norte S.A., it quickly changed its name, and is usually known as simply Telecom within Argentina.
In 1990, Argentina started to privatize most of its state-owned utilities: power, water, trains, and telecommunications, just to name a few. The monopoly of state-owned phone service ENTel was split into two territories: France Télécom was given the "upper half" of the country, from the middle to the north, and Telefónica was given the southern part. Each company was given an initial 7 year monopoly beginning on November 8, 1990. Initially, other companies were given exclusive licenses for international long distance, as well as cellular phone service.
Personal is the debut studio album by the American vocal group Men of Vizion. It was released on June 18, 1996 via Michael Jackson's record label, MJJ Music, after a demo tape was played to him by producer Teddy Riley. The album has been described as a "sumptuous blend" of vocal R&B and "90s production techniques", that alternates between smooth ballads and new jack swing.
Personal received mixed reviews from music critics, with some critics noting similarities between the group and Boyz II Men. Some critics felt as if the material was unmemorable versions of Boyz II Men songs, while others felt that Personal was highly different from the music at the time. The album only managed to chart in the United States, where it peaked at 14 on the BillboardHeatseekers Albums, 29 on the BillboardR&B Albums and 186 on the BillboardTop 200. Two singles were released to promote the album: "House Keeper" and "Do Thangz". The former was a commercial success, peaking at number 13 on the U.S. BillboardHot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and at 67 on the U.S. BillboardHot 100.
