Translation and Multimedia Services in Oakland, California.

Here at CacaoRock we have been translating technical papers, accounting and financial texts, software, immigration certificates, adoption letters, books, movie scripts and official foreign documents for a long time. We even worked translating documents for the military and creating movie subtitles! What is so special about our English to Spanish translations? Our localization skills. Besides our accuracy, we are able to apply to these translations the neutralism of standard Spanish or specific Spanish-speaking countries.

Two album covers spanning 22 years, designed by Storm Thorgerson

1988's The Delicate Sound Of Thunder by Pink Floyd:

and 2010's Bingo! by Steve Miller Band:

The two albums are available at 

Here's Steve Miller releasing his first studio album in 17 years (since the great, digitally mastered Wide River) and having Storm Thorgerson -the great photographer and designer who, with Hipgnosis, has designed LP covers for Alan Parsons, Wings and Emerson, Lake & Palmer- work on the CD cover. The reminiscing was immediate: A man, close to the camera, has round objects attached to his body and faces another man at the distance; an enemy or somebody who's different to him.  It is a duel or Repeating himself? Completely. Was this deliberate? Good question. 

Bingo! is Steve's first album in 17 years but is a collection of covers. Being Wide River his last album of original material, I just realized Steve has come up with only one album of original songs in 24 years. Just a thought.

Bingo! is fun to listen, but the standard version of the CD -there is a "Special Edition" with bonus tracks and extended liner notes- runs a little more than 30 minutes. At $12.99, it's more than a rip off. Steve could have given us way more.
