It Takes A Year Original recording. William Ackerman Format: Vinyl. This is Ackerman's second album and already shows considerable development as Ackerman continues to carve his own niche next to Basho, Fahey and Hedges. He still stays in the mainstream of steel string fingerstyle work but he has started to soften, shifting to the lighter jazz work that is yet to come. Perhaps the best example of this is "The Bricklayer's Beautiful Daughter," a superb composition, played in an alternate tuning, with a new focus on the movement of chordal components against a melodic refrain.
One of the greatest Ackerman's releases. Published (and property) by Windham Hill Records back in 1977. Originally an independent label, Windham Hill Records was founded in 1976 by William Ackerman and Anne Robinson, who were married soon thereafter. It was originally known for folk and acoustic music but became associated with new age music after the success of George Winston's "Autumn" in 1980. Ackerman sold his half of the company to BMG in 1992 and Robinson sold her half in 1996
The album was nominated for Best New Age Album at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards (Held on February 8, 2009). The Bricker's Beautiful Daughter"-4:20. Believing in Miracles"-4:32. Up There Throughout the Skies"-6:24. Was It This Lifetime"-5:50. The Impending Death of the Virgin Spirit"-6:48. When the Moon Sings"-6:15. It was originally known for folk and acoustic music but became associated with new age music after the success of George Winston's 'Autumn' in 1980. Ackerman sold his half of the company to BMG in 1992 and Robinson sold her half in 1996
He did just about everything from picking cover art to producing the records. Early albums featured himself It Takes a Year (1977) and his cousin, fellow guitarist Alex de Grassi Turning: Turning Back (1978). Although in later years critics would single out Ackerman's records (especially Childhood and Memory) and De Grassi's first record, the album that gained Windham Hill Records notice was the 1980 recording by George Winston Autumn.

The Winner Takes It All" is a song recorded by the Swedish pop group ABBA. Released as the first single from the group's Super Trouper album on 21 July 1980, it is a ballad in the key of F-sharp major, reflecting the end of a romance. The single's B-side was the non-album track "Elaine". It was the group's first single after a seven-month hiatus and peaked at N. in several countries, including the UK, where it became their eight chart-topper.
