Recorded at Mills College in Oakland, CA in March 1976, this LP represents one of the very few examples of John Cage performing his own work. Actually written in 1969, Cheap Imitation, composed for solo piano, is based on Erik Satie’s symphonic drama “Socrate”. An example of one of Cage’s indeterminate pieces, here Satie’s “Socrate” undergoes a series of variations based on the random extraction of hexagrams from the I-Ching. Inside pocket gatefold sleeve with liner notes.
Co-produced by Motown Guitar God Dennis Coffey & Mike Theodore
Featuring Members of the Legendary Motown Players The Funk Bros.

Its one of the lost classics of the 60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in colour and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion. The album is Cold Fact, and whats more intriguing is that its maker a shadowy figure known as Rodriguez was, for many years, lost too. A decade ago, he was rediscovered working as a menial day laborer in Detroit, Michigan. He was unaware that his defining album had become not only a cult classic, but for the people of South Africa, a beacon of revolution.
Rodriguez recorded Cold Fact his debut album in 1969, and released it in March 1970. Its crushingly good stuff, filled with tales of bad drugs, lost love, and itchy-footed songs about life in late 60s inner-city America. Gun sales are soaring/Housewives find life boring/Divorce the only answer/Smoking causes cancer, says the Dylan-esque
But the album sank without trace, thanks, in part, to some of Rodriguezs more idiosyncratic behavior, like performing at an industry showcase with his back to the audience throughout. When the follow-up, 1972s Coming From Reality, also sold poorly, Rodriguez called an end to his recording career. Hed never even played a proper gig. And he got on with life. Over the years, he turned his hand to local politics, gaining a degree in philosophy, factory work and eventually, hard labour.
As his music career became a memory, Rodriguezs legend was growing on the other side of the world. In South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Cold Fact had become a major word of mouth success, particularly among young people in the South African armed forces, who identified with its counter-cultural bent. But Rodriguez was an enigma not even the label knew where to find him and his demise became the subject of debate and conjecture. Some rumours said hed died of a drug overdose or burned to death on stage. Others said he was in a mental institution, or in prison for murdering his girlfriend. Barring a couple of sold out Australian tours in 1979 and 1981, nothing had been heard of him for almost 30 years.
But the tide began to turn in 1996, when journalist Craig Bartholemew set out to get to the bottom of the mystery. After many dead ends, he found Rodriguez alive, well, free and perfectly sane in Detroit, ending years of speculation. Rodriguez himself had no idea about his fame in South Africa (the album had gone multi-platinum, Rodriguez has received not so much as a Rand in royalties), and embarked on a triumphant South African tour followed, filling 5,000 capacity venues across the country. A documentary named Dead Men Dont Tour: Rodriguez in South Africa 1998 was screened on national TV.
Rodriguez is spoken of in the same reverent tones as The Doors, Love and Jimi Hendrix.

An American Classic: Gorgeous Breakthrough Album of Pop Standards Spent More than a Decade on Country Charts
Quintuple Platinum 1978 Set Finds Nelson Interpreting Fare From Likes of Kurt Weill, Hoagy Carmichael, and Irving Berlin
Sumptuous Sound Elevates Booker T. Jones Production: Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI
As a Singer, Nelson Never Better: Gets Inside the Phrasing, Lyrics, and Emotions of Songs
Why be predictable?, Willie Nelson asked Columbia Records executive Nick Blackburn, after the latter resisted the Red Headed Strangers decision to make an album of classic pop tunes. Talk about outlaw country. Cutting against the genres traditions and Music Row conventions, Nelsons Stardust remains a genius-level creation as well as the icons most commercially successful release, a truly gorgeous record infused with ultimate respect for composers and lyrics and many of the finest performances of his career. It is a quintessential part of any catalog.
Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP dazzles with dead-quiet surfaces, tube-like warmth, and an enhanced soundstage. Further exposing the delicate touches abounding in Stax legend Booker T. Jones production, this edition brings out the textured kernels of Nelsons voiceand the deep-seeded dignity, austerity, devotion, grit, sensitivity, grace, and plaintiveness within it. His brilliant phrasing throughout is on par with that of Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles, two giants that influenced this project and his willingness to pair with strings and small combo to wondrous effect.
Having met Jones while living in Malibu, Nelson established a relationship with the musician that extended to roles as producer, arranger and band mate. Jones superior knowledge of the American Songbook comes through via the materials economy of scale and sympathetic approach. Acoustic guitar arpeggios, contrasting breaks, bluesy harmonicas, glowing organs, R&B-tinged horns, brushed drums, and relaxed bass lines trickle throughout the songs, all distinguished by Nelsons intimate timbre and absolutely astonishing vocal expressiveness.
In redefining and reimagining standards such as Irving Berlins Blue Skies, Hoagy Carmichaels Georgia On My Mind, and the age-old All of Meall of which landed in the Top 5 of the Country singles chartNelson wedded together pop, country, jazz, folk, and blues in a manner in which no artist had ever before done. He gained considerable rewards for his exquisite efforts: Stardust sold more than five million copies and, incredibly, stayed on the Country album charts for more than ten years.
This is a record no one should be without. Hear the definitive analog pressing.

Double LP set cut at 45 RPM and pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings!
Mastered at Sterling Sound
The discovery of these 2-track masters comprising Stereo ‘57 - The Essential Elvis Volume 2, is nothing short of a miracle, and this 200-gram pressing cut at 45 RPM from Quality Record Pressings sounds so astonishing, your jaw will hit the floor!
From the moment Elvis began working with a new song, sound engineer Thorne Norgar had the 15 ips mono tape machine rolling simultaneously with a 2-track protection copy. The machines weren't switched to pause until Elvis was satisfied with the take.
A couple of years before the advent of the stereo LP in mid-1958, major record companies were experimenting with stereophonic recordings, often refered to then as binaural. Studios were using the new Ampex 2-track tape recorders for other purposes, such as for recording session back-ups. But few Elvis fans know how close history came to permanently losing these precious audio glimpses of a young Elvis engrossed in the creative process.
Founded in 1933, Radio Recorders of Los Angeles was the preeminent recording studio of its day, and its director of recording, long-time engineer Thorne Nogar, engineered all of the Elvis sessions from 1955 to 1961. Some of popular music's greatest hits: "Jailhouse Rock," "All Shook Up," "Loving You," and "Teddy Bear," are just a few of the blockbusters that Nogar oversaw Elvis record at the studios, located at 7000 Santa Monica Blvd.
Elvis would be right in the center of everything, at every recording session, Nogar would later recall. "Like with the Jordanaires when he sang, we would set it up with a unidirectional mike, so he would be standing right in front of them, facing them, and they would have their own directional microphone and they would be singing to one another."
The 2-tracks from which this record was pressed could not have sounded better, and there was no one more careful, more experienced and technically skilled to record these historic sessions than Nogar, says Acoustic Sounds' founder and CEO Chad Kassem.
Yet one day years later when Thorne was "cleaning out" his tapes closet, remarkably, he set these 2-track backup tapes aside, intending to dispose of them. Noted producer Bones Howe had worked for Nogar as a tape operator at Radio Recorders, and thanks to him the tapes were saved from a final resting place in the trash can. Bones took the tapes home with him. He'd put them safely away in a bank vault.
These 2-tracks have "erase" clearly written on the master log sheets. They're from a January 1957 session at which Presley produced material for two EPs and the film "Loving You" soundtrack. They're the only known ones surviving from the pre-stereo era.
RCA's Essential Elvis series was a vehicle for the release of Presley's alternate takes. On this double LP set, listeners hear Presley at work, refining band arrangements and working through the nuances of his vocal performance. The LP reveals the Jordanaires voices' sparkling with a natural lifelike sound that's both sonically rich and detailed.
The Jordanaires, a vocal quartet originally formed as a gospel group in 1948, gained fame largely for being Elvis' background singers, both in live appearances and recordings, from 1956 to 1972. If discovering these rare, almost lost recorded treasures weren't enough, the sound reproduction puts this release over the top! When the Jordanaires sing "Peace in the Valley," you'll swear you're hearing a melody sent from heaven. An audiophile's prayer come true!
There are a number of first and second takes, during which Presley and his backing musicians make tentative passes at the material. As the record progresses, arrangements take shape and Presley, growing more confident that a keeper take is imminent, sings with more enthusiasm. Throughout, Presley is heard directing the proceedings and demonstrating a lot of "aw shucks" charm in the process, goofing with band members and laughing through his and others', flubs.
Like other reissues pressed by QRP, this magnificent 200-gram LP is notable for its absolutely silent background. The vocal harmonies are tingle-inducing, life-sized and utterly natural.
For serious Elvis fans and anyone else interested in the creative process, Volume 2 meets the first definition of "essential" as well as the second: it's indispensable stuff.

In the late 1950s and the '60s, country music was essentially a singles medium. This album, first released in 1967, collects a dozen of Patsy Cline's biggest hits — all of them from the country singles market — including "Walkin' After Midnight," "Sweet Dreams (Of You)," "Crazy," and "I Fall to Pieces." Producer Owen Bradley surrounds Cline's full-throated, emotionally charged vocals with lush, sophisticated arrangements that set the standard for Nashville's "countrypolitan" sound. Before Shania Twain found a new (though not necessarily improved) way to combine country and pop in the 1990s, this was the top-selling country album of all time by a female artist.

Rosie Flores, the Rockabilly Filly, the working girl’s guitar virtuoso, surfs some slinky West Texas waves, channels some lush, longing Beatles-inflected pop and adds some sly hither-come purrs to a classic by the King. Rosie can be an elegant classicist, or can let it all hang out with a rock and roll energy that most somehow forget to remember. It’s all wrapped up with Rosie’s singularly scorching guitar work and backed by Brian Setzer’s rhythm section.
“Rosie Flores was born too late to be tagged ‘the Female Elvis,’ which is just as well. Although she’s made her reputation singing and playing rockabilly, primitive R&B, and early rock-flavored tunes, she has a further-ranging taste than Elvis ever had, and has also written some of the best tunes in her repertoire.”—All Music Guide.

Over the course of a stellar career that has spanned more than 30 years, saxophonist Kenny Garrett has become the preeminent alto saxophonist of his generation. From his first gig with the Duke Ellington Orchestra (led by Mercer Ellington) through his time spent with musicians such as Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis, Garrett has always brought a vigorous yet melodic, and truly distinctive, alto saxophone sound to each musical situation. As a bandleader for the last two decades, he has also continually grown as a composer. With his latest recording (and second for Mack Avenue Records), Seeds From The Underground, Garrett has given notice that these qualities have not only become more impressive, but have provided him with the platform to expand his horizons and communicate his musical vision clearly. Seeds From The Underground is a powerful return to the straight-ahead, acoustic and propulsive quartet format that showcases Garrett’s extraordinary abilities.
For Garrett, Seeds From The Underground is a special recording. It once again consists of all original compositions, and is truly an homage to those who have inspired and influenced him, both personally and musically. “All of these songs are dedicated to someone,” says Garrett. “And the ‘seeds’ have been planted, directly or indirectly, by people who have been instrumental in my development.”
With Seeds From The Underground Garrett has crafted a project that offers his appreciation while always making the listener aware of his band’s skillful approach to melody, harmony and rhythm. From personal nods such as the opening track “Boogety Boogety,” dedicated to his memory of watching western films with his father (the title refers to the sound of a galloping horse); “Wiggins,” which references his high school band director Bill Wiggins; and “Detroit,” an evocative, reflective composition about his hometown, and a celebration of mentor Marcus Belgrave; to his appreciation of some of his musical heroes on “J Mac” (Jackie McLean); “Haynes Here” (Roy Haynes); and “Do Wo Mo” (Duke Ellington, Woody Shaw and Thelonious Monk).
Melody, as a matter of fact, was a key element for the saxophonist when writing for the recording. “I wanted to focus on the melody,” Garrett reflects. “I want people to remember what the melody is before we start improvising…and on some songs I heard voices, the singing of the melody.” This latter point is in evidence on the selections “Haynes Here,” “Detroit” and “Welcome Earth Song.”
Another notable component compositionally for Garrett on Seeds From The Underground is his approach to rhythm and meter. Over the past few years, one of the most popular and acclaimed groups that he has been a part of is the GRAMMY® award winning Five Peace Band, joining guitarist John McLaughlin, pianist Chick Corea, bassist Christian McBride, and drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Brian Blade. His participation in that band led him to experiment with writing in different meters. “Some of these songs are in odd meters; in my experience with John, we played some songs in odd meters, so I thought, this is a different way of writing songs,” Garrett states. “So there is some of that approach here.”
Garrett’s current working band is very much up to the task on Seeds From The Underground. And like all successful bandleaders, Garrett knows what he wants musically and has formed a band that will best communicate his message (with implicit trust among one another). Bassist Nat Reeves is a rhythmic anchor and a long-standing member of Garrett’s past aggregations. However, for this recording, Garrett thought a lot about the talents of fellow Detroiter, drummer Ronald Bruner, as well as Venezuelan pianist Benito Gonzalez. “When I decided I wanted to do the album, I had Ronald in mind; I thought that he would work well on these songs. And Benito has been in my band for a while, and we talked conceptually about how I hear the piano in the band. McCoy Tyner is my man, so I wanted to have more of that sound, and there aren’t a lot of young guys around who are dealing with that like Benito is.” Percussionist Rudy Bird also provides a driving, rhythmic pulse to the recording.
A very important contributor to Seeds From The Underground is the project’s co-producer: pianist, composer and educator, Donald Brown. His friendship with Garrett goes back to their days with Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers. He has been an integral part of past Garrett recordings, and has been a musical inspiration for him. “I feel comfortable in the studio with him and I know he’s going to hear what I hear, because we think alike in how we hear music,” states Garrett. “I’ve also always admired his compositions and he was really inspired by these compositions, so he was glad that we were able to hook back up on this project.”
Garrett has always expressed interest in music from other parts of the world. Whether it’s Africa, Greece, Indonesia, China or Guadeloupe, he immerses himself in the culture and gleans from his experience something that becomes a part of his artistic message. On Seeds From The Underground, the African-influenced “Welcome Earth Song” and “Laviso, I Bon?” (the latter was inspired by a musician friend in Guadeloupe) are prime examples.
The album highlights Garrett’s overall approach to music: wide-ranging, receiving ideas from all musical sources and genres. Garrett states, “I love the challenge of trying to stay open…about music and about life. If it’s music, I just try to check it out. Right now I’m listening to some music from Martinique and I’m lovin’ it. If I like it, maybe I can incorporate some of it into what I do.” As for composing: “I don’t try to control what I write,” he says. “Music comes from ‘The Creator.’ It’s a gift that’s coming in, and I receive it. I write in all genres, and I’m writing all the time. It’s never about what it is…I just say thank you.”
Seeds From The Underground is the latest stop on what continues to be a fascinating musical journey for Kenny Garrett and his listeners. It’s a recording that is not only a significant personal statement from the saxophonist, but a musical declaration of his continued growth as a musician, and in particular, as a composer.

Randy Bachman and C.F. "Fred" Turner were the core members of Bachman-Turner Overdrive throughout their commercial heyday in the seventies, sharing duties on the lead vocals with Bachman contributing lead guitar and Turner the bass. Between them they also composed the vast majority of the band's many hit singles. Reuniting at the end of 2009 they released an eponymous album in 2010 and in November of that year they performed at the famous Roseland Ballroom in New York City as part of their North American tour.

The First Limited Edition Pressing of "Fallen Angels" Will Come With Two Bonus Tracks, "Annunaki Legacy" and "Blackened Blues"
Venom, the hugely influential UK outfit now celebrating a full 30 years since the release of their "Welcome To Hell" debut, will have a brand new studio album released on November 20th via Spinefarm Records.
Titled "Fallen Angels" and featuring 13 fresh recordings produced by main-man/bassist Cronos, this is the follow-up to 2008's "Hell" release, and sees the trio (completed by guitarist Rage and drummer Dante) adopting a style highly redolent of classic early Venom with modern studio technology employed only to increase the general level of natiness.
Says Cronos: "We make an album, it usually take a few tracks to get into the vibe, although this album's vibe was very much present during the ideas stage...everything came together so naturally. We started throwing ideas together on the South American tour, and then again during the live shows of 2010, and so we knew from the start that we had some amazing new songs to make a great album.
With any new album, you look for a few songs to put into the live set, although that is going to be very difficult with this record, as we can nail the entire album live if we want!"

Considered by many to be her best album, 1961’s The Second Time Around, found Etta James performing a string of pop hits from the 1940s in an attempt to crossover to a wider audience. Songs like 1948’s “It’s Too Soon To Know” (the first rock & roll song ever), or 1946’s “Fool That I Am”, were both brought to life again here by James. The album’s biggest hit however, was 1929’s “Don’t Cry Baby”, first recorded by the Empress of the Blues, and James’ idol, Bessie Smith.

When asked why he wanted to do this album, Cooke simply replied, “She was, and still is, the greatest that ever lived for my money,” no small praise from a man who himself ruled the charts with over 30 Top 40 hits from 1957 until his death at age 33 in 1964.

The Alchemist is an American hip-hop producer, DJ and rapper. He hails from California, after rising to prominence in the late 1990s as a close associate of Dilated Peoples. As a teenager, Alchemist associated himself with Shifty Shellshock of Crazy Town, Evidence of Dilated Peoples and Scott Caan, son of James Caan. While rhyming in L.A., they attracted the attention of B-Real of Cypress Hill. He invited the teens to join his crew, The Soul Assassins, which also included the groups House of Pain and Funkdoobiest.
In 1999, DJ Muggs introduced Alchemist to his good friends, Mobb Deep. Alchemist produced two songs for Mobb's Murda Muzik album. Impressed by his production skills and street smarts, Mobb Deep took him under their wing, using his beats on all their subsequent albums. He has since gone on to produce for many of hip-hop's leading artists today including Curren$y, Snoop Dogg, Nas and Ghostface.
The Alchemist's latest endeavor, Russian Roulette, hosts a cast of today's most acclaimed emcees including Action Bronson, Danny Boy, Schoolboy Q, Guilty Simpson and Roc Marciano with Alchemist overseeing production on all tracks.

The essential signatures of post-Pantera metal are in abundance on Lamb of God's inaugural album (though they had issued a disc under the name Burn the Priest). A veritable cornucopia of double picking and double-kick drumming, New American Gospel provides a mighty oak upon which gritty American metal's faith is maintained, effectively bridging the '90s' insistence upon drill-sergeant technicality and the old school's determined focus on riff construction. Both kick and snare beats are as insistent as pneumatic drilling, and beyond that, they are diamond-precise, riveted flawlessly into place by Steve Austin's Today Is the Day drum-heavy production. Lamb of God plays a brand of heavy -- emphasis on heavy -- metal not unlike Meshuggah having jettisoned some of their mathematical insistence. What elevates this Richmond, VA, quintet's assault above the majority of modern metal is the attention given to constructing definite melody and complete songs; this is a creative act who generally is subordinated by most metallers to the pursuit of heaviness. Lamb of God does both tastefully in the proper balance.

Hope You Like It Geordie $29.99
180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP + CD - Sealed
Probably best remembered as lead singer Brian Johnson’s band before AC/DC, the Newcastle-based hard rock band Geordie was actually led by guitarist Vic Malcolm, who did almost all of the songwriting on the albums. Their 1973 debut, Hope You Like It, included hit singles “Don’t Do That” and “All Because Of You”, landing Geordie firmly on the map somewhere in the vicinity of bands like Slade. While Geordie may not have been as groundbreaking as AC/DC, Johnson was certainly off to a solid start in a band hailed at the time by fans and critics alike.

In February of 2009 Ladyfinger released their sophomore effort Dusk. The album bridged three decades of influence, mixing early 70’s classic rock with punk and hardcore of the late 80’s and early 90’s. This unique fusion gained them praise (Pitchfork called Dusk’s lead single ‘Little Things’ “all power and momentum and baldface 70’s classic-rock glory”) and a pack of new fans.
After a brief time away and a lineup change, Ladyfinger (ne) began playing shows on and off in early 2010. The shows went well and by the summer of 2011 the band was revisiting unfinished songs from the Dusk sessions and writing new tracks. In May of 2012 the band found itself at ARC studios in Omaha once again recording with their longtime producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Isis).
Upon listening to the ten songs found on Errant Forms it’s clear that the music was indeed there. Their signature mix of classic rock bombast and punk grit is back on display here in standout tracks “Galactic” and “Poison For Hire”, while “Birds” paints an ominous vision of atonement over subtle guitars that slowly build until absolution is realized with the pounding drums and organ that emerge at the song’s climax. Lead single “Dark Horse” is an ode to escapism that stands out for being as solemn as it is anthemic. Errant Forms adds a new level of musical nuance and lyrical breadth to Ladyfinger's already dynamic sound.

Philadelphia's favorite indie-pop duo formerly known as 'Reading Rainbow' is now a full-blown rock quartet: Bleeding Rainbow. "Yeah Right" is the follow up to their 2010 indie breakout album "Prism Eyes", and it has a much bigger sound directly influenced by the band's teenage musical taste: Sonic Youth, My Blood Valentine, Nirvana and Yo La Tengo to name a few. Mixing hints of Greg Sage's anthemic, anxiety-ridden punk riffs, with equal parts drone and noise swells overlayed with boy-girl harmonies, Bleeding Rainbow channels the Mamas and the Papas as if backed by early Smashing Pumpkins.

Eight Radar Brothers $19.99
Vinyl LP + CD - Sealed
LP Includes a Bonus CD of the Album!
Radar Brothers return with Eight, a very special new vinyl-only release. Featuring an expanded band of brothers including Stevie Triechel and Be Hussey from The Illustrated Garden as well as new members Dan Iead (Cass McCombs, The Broken West) on guitar/pedal steel, Brian Cleary on keyboards and Ethan Walter on piano and synthesizers. Between the two keyboards
and Iead and Putnam’s guitars, the band orchestrates a swirling fervor that glides over Triechel and Hussey’s rhythmic aggressions. Eight may well be Radar Brothers’ darkest, hardest rocking, most psychedelic, and yet most intensely personal album to date. From Putnam’s tribute to Joni Mitchell’s cover art (The Hissing of Summer Lawns) to the surreal, picturesque lyrics to the unidentifiable textures and sounds that pour from your speakers like liquid paintings—this may also be the band’s most visual album to date.

1978 was a banner year for Yes & their smash platinum LP "Tormato." Reuniting the dream team of Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White & Rick Wakeman, "Tormato" is often considered of the finest recordings in their amazing career. Yes fans continue to praise "Tormato" as a truly inspiring masterwork. This important piece of music consists of nine amazing Yes workouts such as the definitive opener "Future Times," the art rock driven "On The Silent Wings Of Freedom," & the international smash "Don't Kill The Whale."

Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck recently revealed that the band's recording process on this album was influenced in part by his work in his side project Axewound. "We approached the record a lot differently this time around," he said. "It was kind of more inspired by the way I did the Axewound record. And that was basically: Get in the studio and write and record as you went along."
"Temper Temper," the band's fourth studio album, was once again produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Good Charlotte), who worked on the group's last LP, 2010's "Fever", and was mixed by noted engineer Chris Lord-Alge (Deftones, Nickelback, Avenged Sevenfold). -Blabbermouth

Shout Out Louds took their time with these songs, recording for about 1.5 years in a small Stockholm studio and producing themselves for the first time with help from Johannes Berglund. A theme emerged and Optica was born, an album celebrating color and light from a band confident in its sound.
Shout Out Louds comment: “In our eagerness to please no one but ourselves this time around, we decided to take on the challenge of producing our own music for the first time ever. Our close friend and sound aficionado of choice Johannes Berglund and his studio in Stockholm presented us with an ideal package for the endeavor. A secluded work space close to home, but off the earth’s surface, a more than generous timeline, and the patient and brilliant sixth member we needed to get through the whole thing safely. Together we made up a downstairs world of explosive colors, big, warm sounds and a very, very uninhibited work process. We never worried about following a clear path, trusting that the conscious decision not to worry would be enough to lead us right, and that right doesn’t necessarily have to mean rational or even reasonable…We all set prestige and skillfulness aside in favor of experimentation and sheer gusto. That will probably come across live too. I don’t think we’ve ever been this excited to take an album on tour.”

Mastered From the Original Tapes by Joe Reagoso with Original Gatefold Cover
1972 was a banner year for The Doobie Brothers as they took their acoustic Bay Area soul & rock sounds to a new dimension thanks to the hits on "Toulouse Street." This multi-platinum event would go on to become one of the most successful albums by anyone that year as the LP spawned a number of top chart singles like "Listen To The Music," "Jesus Is Just Alright" & "Rockin' Down The Highway." This anniversary edition was impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Doobie
Brothers/Michael McDonald/Boz Scaggs) from the original Warner Bros. tapes at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering with Ron McMaster. Toulouse Street sounds incredibly rockin’ and soulful as you remember it. As an added anniversary bonus, the original gatefold cover artwork, not seen in years, has been re-created, further enhancing your Doobie Brothers listening experience.

Chelsea Light Moving is the new band from Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, recently named the #1 Guitarist Of All Time by Spin. Featuring the backing talents of Keith Wood on guitar, Samara Lubelskion bass and John Moloney on drums. This is the same band from Thurston's last solo album Demolished Thoughts -- but this time it hits hard with rock n roll noise. The man himself describes the tracks as "chug & shred burners," and they hit the usual mindblowing variety of rock-historical referencepoints and the primal clatter Thurston's pinoeered for over two decades.

This is a collection of impossibly rare recordings from legendary finger-picker Lena Hughes. A musical "amateur" that best exemplified true artistry, Lena Hughes was born in Grape Grove Township, Missouri, in 1904. Though she never recorded any 78s and only one LP, Hughes was most influential through her steady performances at various fiddler conventions and folk festivals throughout the Ozarks. She was an excellent fiddler, banjoist and guitar picker who retained the largely extinct repertoire of parlor pieces and the variety of specialized tunings that were necessary to play them.
Lena Hughes' repertoire can be devided roughly in half: finger-picked numbers adapted from fiddle tunes and recast parlor guitar pieces gleaned from popular sentimental songs, hymns and 19th century airs. As a faithful attendee at folk festivals, Hughes was accompanied by her guitar-playing husband, Jake. Her most mesmerizing performances, such as "Pearly Dew," "Spanish Fandango" and "Kentucky Moon Waltz" depend heavily upon resonance of the open chord as it relates to the picking of the melodic line, primarily on one string. This ethereal harmonic technique, which seems so natural in Hughes' playing, is the holy grail for most finger-picking guitarists. Her lack of pretense and her mastery of this repertoire are what define her legendary status.

With the release of country music icon Tim McGraw's Two Lanes of Freedom, he remains dedicated to delivering music that is innovative, heartfelt and authentic. "I feel like I've progressed in my work, and I've always strived to get better," says McGraw. "On my last album, I was discovering some new sounds and new things that I wanted to do, scratching the surface of the direction I wanted to head. This album was a way to reach a little further back, to all that I'd done throughout my career, and bring both sides together -- it's a combination of discovery, along with some rediscovery."

Crafting some of the finest guitar-filled power pop this side of Weezer or Cheap Trick—Free Energy signed to NYC powerhouse DFA records (based on their homemade demos) and recorded their debut with James Murphy. They toured for nearly two years behind the release of 2010’s Stuck on Nothing and the accolades
came in, including a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork and Rolling Stone’s assessment that the band “totally fucking rules.”
While it might have seemed an odd fit for a power-riffing pop rock act to put out a record on a West Village disco label, the euphoric vibe of Free Energy perfectly complimented a roster of artistically different but equally accomplished bands, such as Black Dice, Yacht, The Rapture, and LCD Soundsystem. This sophomore release demonstrates the band doing what they love—condensing handclaps, harmonies, massive choruses, and lazer guided guitar leads into tracks like “Electric Fever”, “Hey Tonight” and “Girls Want Rock” - while working
a time-tested formula that can still sound fresh in the right hands. Much like their DFA debut, Love Sign flirts with hysteria-inducing pop songwriting and classic rock production, this time around working with John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.
and The Hold Steady). Released on the band’s new imprint “Free Energy Records”.

People, Hell & Angels is a new album of twelve never before released Jimi Hendrix studio recordings. This special album showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles. Outside the view of a massive audience that had established the Experience as rock’s largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums together in the US Top 10 sales chart, Jimi was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.

Impossible Truth is William Tyler's debut album on Merge Records. Rooted in apocalyptic expectation and bittersweet nostalgia, Tyler describes the record as “my ’70s singer-songwriter record; it just doesn’t have any words.”
Impossible Truth will challenge your ideas of what an instrumental guitar record can and should be. As his friend and tour mate M.C. Taylor from Hiss Golden Messenger puts it, “William will worry a phrase—some tangled chordal wormhole—until you are certain it’s all that exists. He’ll take you over the stiles, he’ll love you up and down, and then he’ll make you cry for the world and what we’ve done to it."

Trespass is the second studio album by Genesis and was recorded and released in 1970. Their last with guitarist Anthony Phillips, Trespass had a folk-flavored progressive rock sound that was a marked departure from their earlier work. The compositions were generally much longer and more complex than those on Genesis's first album, and the recordings have a muted, pastoral sound. The band was unhappy with John Mayhew's drumming skills and replaced him with Phil Collins following Anthony Phillips's departure.

If Genesis truly established themselves as progressive rockers on Trespass, Nursery Cryme is where their signature persona was unveiled: true English eccentrics, one part Lewis Carroll and one part Syd Barrett, creating a fanciful world that emphasized the band's instrumental prowess as much as Peter Gabriel's theatricality. Which isn't to say that all of Nursery Cryme works. There are times when the whimsy is overwhelming, just as there are periods when there's too much instrumental indulgence, yet there's a charm to this indulgence, since the group is letting itself run wild. Even if they've yet to find the furthest reaches of their imagination, part of the charm is hearing them test out its limits, something that does result in genuine masterpieces, as on "The Musical Box" and "The Return of the Giant Hogweed," two epics that dominate the first side of the album and give it its foundation. If the second side isn't quite as compelling or quite as structured, it doesn't quite matter because these are the songs that showed what Genesis could do, and they still stand as pinnacles of what the band could achieve.

Foxtrot is where Genesis began to pull all of its varied inspirations into a cohesive sound -- which doesn't necessarily mean that the album is streamlined, for this is a group that always was grandiose even when they were cohesive, or even when they rocked, which they truly do for the first time here. Indeed, the startling thing about the opening "Watcher of the Skies" is that it's the first time that Genesis attacked like a rock band, playing with a visceral power. There's might and majesty here, and it, along with "Get 'Em Out by Friday," is the truest sign that Genesis has grown muscle without abandoning the whimsy. Certainly, they've rarely sounded as fantastical or odd as they do on the epic 22-minute closer "Supper's Ready," a nearly side-long suite that remains one of the group's signature moments. It ebbs, flows, teases, and taunts, see-sawing between coiled instrumental attacks and delicate pastoral fairy tales. If Peter Gabriel remained a rather inscrutable lyricist, his gift for imagery is abundant, as there are passages throughout the album that are hauntingly evocative in their precious prose. But what impresses most about Foxtrot is how that precociousness is delivered with pure musical force. This is the rare art-rock album that excels at both the art and the rock, and it's a pinnacle of the genre (and decade) because of it.

When this album was released in 1973 (the same year as the famed "Live" set), Genesis had become one of the fastest-rising groups on the pop scene. The band's blend of classical instincts, theatrical presentation, as well as whimsically complex and daring arrangements established them as leaders of the British progressive rock movement, along with fellow giants Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Jethro Tull. After returning to the studio, these talented musicians continued to labor and experiment. The result of their effort is Selling England by the Pound, considered by some to equal their masterpiece, Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. It was truly a group effort and is still widely-acknowledged as one of the great albums from the 1970s! And in what was perhaps a foreshadowing of things to come, drummer Phil Collins made his vocal debut here on the song, More Fool Me.

Few albums, especially of this epic proportion, rival this magnificent production first released in 1974. In an era of over indulgent double LP efforts and "rock operas", "Lamb" was inspired by a trip to New York City by the band, resulting in the writing and production of what is considered not only the high point of the "Gabriel era" of Genesis, but also in one of the greatest rock albums, ever. Featuring extended passages showcasing the multi-instrumental talents of the band plus the prolific and expressive if sometimes weird and disturbing lyrics by Gabriel, it tells the saga of a NYC graffiti artist named Rael and his ultimate transformation. The album would be Gabriel's swan song as a member and help launch a still on-going solo career.

This year Willie Nelson turns 80 years old, a milestone which has not slowed down the American icon in the slightest. Following the success of 2012’s Heroes, which debuted at #18 on the album charts (his highest chart debut in over 20 years), Willie returns with another brand new album featuring a selection of songs that are near and dear to him and his band “The Family.” Like the man himself, this stunning collection is not easily deﬁned as a set genre or style. They include American standards and country classics, Irving Berlin and Carl Perkins, Django Reinhart as well as Willie-penned originals. Yet the result is a beautiful, cohesive set – songs about love and reﬂection – in Willie’s inimitable style. It is a record in the vein of both Stardust and RedHeaded Stranger and destined to become a classic.

Double-Platinum Album Includes Top 10 Hit “Chuck E’s In Love”
Rickie Lee Jones was hip before hipsters came of age. Wearing a beret, exuding supreme cool, and visually demarcating herself as a member of a bohemian underground, her image on the cover of her self-titled debut says as much about the singer-songwriter as it does the music within the grooves. Uninterested in coloring within the lines, Jones steps out, a dreamer in the post-punk age, an adventurous drifter seemingly deaf to the noisiness of her era. No wonder the work remains one of the most impressive opening salvos in history.
Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s 180 gram LP edition of Jones’ double-platinum 1979 smash finally gives listeners the ultimate version of this long-adored masterpiece. Always prized by audiophiles for its sonics, the record now breathes with a clearer air, with enhancements in dynamics, imaging, soundstaging, and frequency extension apparent seconds after the needle touches down on the opening grooves. Jones’ singular, jazzy vocals—straddling territory between youthful surprise, street-smart sharp, and grown-up seriousness—take on stupendously lifelike qualities to the extent you can hear into her lungs.
Emerging from a quiet Los Angeles scene that also laid claim to Tom Waits, a former love interest, Jones reflects an undiminished capacity for fusing folk, R&B, pop, jazz, and scatted word poetry on an effort that matches the flexibility and elasticity of the artist’s creative approach. As if playing games of hide and seek, Jones often dances around conventional syllabic phrases, using her delivery to stretch language and vowels, turning in diction that’s at once gorgeous and enterprising. She taps into a subtlety of texture and ambience well beyond her then 23-year-old age, inserting sly humor when apt, and never shying away from raw emotion.
Renowned for the Top 10 hit “Chuck E’s In Love,” Rickie Lee Jones overflows with finger-snapping be-bop accents, funky cabaret melodies, bluesy bridges, soothing balladry, and even Westernized fills. Subdued complexities flavor the arrangements, expressly tailored for Jones’ portrait-rich storytelling and character-driven narratives. Such diversity is on display on the metaphorical heartache of “Last Chance Texaco,” reflective “Company,” and corner-hangout musings of “Danny’s All-Star Joint.” Throughout, intricate guitar lines give listeners further reason to concentrate on the tunes. This one is simply a must-have.

Caitlin Rose is back with a new studio album, the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut, Own Side Now. The Stand-In introduces a newfound confidence in Rose, the poise of an experienced songwriter rarely displayed on a sophomore offering. This sense of self-assurance is woven throughout twelve carefully crafted songs with the timeless sound and witty approach to lyricism that has become her signature. Still only 25, the scope of her progression as an artist is palpable from the outset, and Rose herself happily concurs.
“This album could be considered my first attempt at a high kick,” she says, acknowledging Own Side Now as a much more small scale and pared down recording. “We’re not aiming to make indie-sounding records. How boring would that be? ”Incorporating classic influences from her Nashville roots with a modern pop twist, Caitlin’s vocals soar over lyrics that seem to possess the wisdom of an old soul. Crafted with Nashville producers Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle), featuring two songs co-written with Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), The Stand-In came together and took form as a team effort, strengthened by a longtime friendship with band mates Jeremy Fetzer and Spencer Cullum.
Inspired by classic country musicians, misunderstandings, break ups, mystical landmarks and the constantly evolving landscape of the Nashville music scene, The Stand-In is an ambitious record, a testament to Rose’s bold approach and strength as a songwriter. With a trademark punch that the New York Times once likened to a young “Patsy Cline learning to howl," Rose’s fiery disposition shines through on rollicking tracks like “No One To Call” and “Waitin’,” songs that possess a huge sound and a whole lot of character. Never the type to be one-dimensional, Rose wears her heart on her sleeve on candid serenades like “I Was Cruel” and sentimental ballads like “Pink Champagne” or “When I’m Gone.”And in true form, Rose includes a brilliant cover on The Stand-In, this time of The Felice Brothers’ single, “Dallas.”

Old Man Markley present their sophomore album, Down Side Up, a cohesive, foot tapping, stomping, 13-song album produced by Fat Mike and singer Johnny Carey.
Fiddler Katie Weed says of the album, "The songs on “Down Side Up” are the result of a wonderful confluence of things: of touring for years and waking up together in cities across the world, of discovering new worlds while still missing home, of stories that we’ve wanted to tell for ages, of melodies that permeated our minds and then soundchecks, and of songs that took shape and life truly as a collaboration between band members. Fat Mike and Johnny worked closely with the band to produce what we think is the best album we’ve ever been a part of. And it happened to be recorded in the same room where we used to burn stove-top popcorn and drink beer and dream about how amazing it would be if we could turn this passion into a life, or even career. We lived, breathed, ate, and slept these songs. Several members literally lived in the studio that we built. Recording in our own studio provided almost unbridled freedom: unlimited opportunity to tweak the songs, and the luxury of being able to take creative risks. Harmonies conceived and recorded at 3 AM or solos re-recorded during lunch became the norm, and allowed us myriad options and creative control. Where else but in the OMM home studio could we lay down a ripping distorted autoharp track and then pop outside to the backyard to record the crickets of Van Nuys?"

Paramore says of their latest self-titled album: "It has been self-titled through nearly the entire process. In fact, what usually takes us weeks on end to sum up and put a label on only took us a five minute conversation this time around. The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends. It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people! Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us.
"The first single off the album is called "Now". It feels like the perfect way to start this new journey we are embarking on not only as a band but as a movement. To show people that you can lose battles but come back and win full on wars. You can rise from ashes. You can make something out of even less than nothing. The only thing you have to do is keep moving forward!"

Nanobots They Might Be Giants $16.99
Vinyl LP - Sealed
Over the years, They Might Be Giants have switched between music for kids and music for grown-ups, and for their latest album, the band will be gearing their poppy alt-rock tunes towards adults. The collection is called Nanobots, and it was produced by frequent collaborator Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, Mary J. Blige) at his private studio. While this music isn't kid-oriented, it looks to be filled with no shortage of youthful exuberance. According to a press release, the album contains "charming wit, electrifying pop melodies and just enough bass clarinet."
Certainly, the single "Call You Mom" could almost pass for a children's song with its garage pop riffs and slightly goofy lyrics. If you've got any kids who enjoy They Might Be Giants, they might well get a kick out of this one. This is the band's first album since 2011's Join Us. -Alex Hudson

Young Dreams are a symphonic pop ensemble from Bergen, Norway, headed up by the mighty Matias Tellez. With a lineup of musicians that starts at six and blossoms to as many as twelve at any given performance, they've already captured the imaginations of dreamy pop lovers internationally. Tellez composes the lion's share of the Young Dreams' sound, after which a variety of instruments and voices are added by a clutch of likeminded optimists. The collective's debut album, Between Places, is a wonderfully respectful interpretation of classical pop and symphonic forms made in an entirely modern way.

180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
Paul Kletzki is best remembered today for his conducting career and many recordings but less well known is his pre-war career as a composer. Born in Poland in 1900, he joined its Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of fifteen as a violinist. After serving in the First World War, he studied philosophy at the University of Warsaw before moving to Berlin in 1921 to continue his studies. During the 1920s his compositions were championed by Arturo Toscanini; and Wilhelm Furtwängler, who permitted Kletzki to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 1925.
Because he was Jewish, he left Nazi Germany in 1933 and moved to Italy, however due to the anti-semitism of the Italian Fascist regime he moved to the Soviet Union in 1936. He later went to live in Switzerland. From 1942 onwards Kletzki wrote no more compositions; having lost much of his family in the holocaust, Nazism had destroyed his spirit and his will to compose.
His conducting skills then came to the fore. Kletzki was invited by EMI's Walter Legge to conduct the newly-formed Philharmonia Orchestra in London and many fine recordings were made (including this Sibelius record in early stereo) for EMI. In 1954 he was appointed chief conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and between 1958 and 1961 he was principal conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. From 1966 until 1970 he was the General Music Director of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. He died in 1974.
In the original June 1956 review M. M. of the GRAMOPHONE wrote: "Kletzki makes an impetuous attack on the music which is virtually completely successful, carried along by a marvellous quality of both orchestral playing and recording... Whether it is a sweep of full-bodied tone, a biting attack, a resonant pizzicato, or a sensitive solo that is called for, it is always there; even to tunes from the basses with a distinctly above-average proportion of note to rumble. And all of it set off by a brilliant quality of recording with fine internal balance... The new Kletzki... addresses the listener directly and convincingly."
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional ‘advance’ playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process.
Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards at the Vinyl Factory, Hayes, using the old EMI Records presses.
Recorded in stereo on 15 & 16 July 1955 at the Kingsway Hall, London. Produced by the legendary Walter Legge and engineered by Douglas Larter and Neville Boyling.

Late Night Tales MGMT $29.99
180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP + CD - 2 LPs Sealed
Double 180 Gram LP with CD and 12 Page Booklet
MGMT’s Late Night Tales selection of post-punk, cult indie and counter-culture figureheads reflects the band’s multifaceted sound, and draws comparisons with contemporary dreampop/chillwave/shoegaze/folk scenes on both sides of the Atlantic.
The listener finds MGMT presiding over the playlist "after-the-after-party”; daybreak creeping through the curtains earlier than desirable, broken bodies lining the corridors, the emotionally bankrupt kept alive by timeless songs of heartache and longing.
Luminaries The Velvet Underground, Suicide and Julian Cope, although not with their most famous songs, sit alongside less familiar names such as Disco Inferno; whose "Can’t See It Through" from their final ‘96 album "Technicolour" opens proceedings.
MGMT’s exclusive cover of "All We Ever Wanted Was Everything" by Bauhaus sits comfortably alongside the UK post-punk-gothic band’s peers The Durutti Column, The Chills, The Jacobites and Felt’s brief but imposing instrumental "Red Indians." Paranoia strikes deep: the double header of Cheval Sombre’s "Troubled Mind" and "Drug Song" by 60’s Christian folk singer Dave Bixby accentuate the hope offered by the ever penitent Spacemen 3 (MGMT’s second album "Congratulations" was recorded with founder Pete Kember aka Sonic Boom), who deliver "Lord Can You Hear Me?" in respect to the beautiful closer "Morning Splendor," taken from Pauline Anna Strom’s rare ‘82 LP Trans-Millenia Consort.

The monster hit “Fire Water Burn” propelled the second album of Punk-Pop pranksters Bloodhound Gang from frat-house obscurity into the Pop mainstream. A downright party record, the genre-bending band fronted by Jimmy Pop defied all critics by refusing to compromise their sound. With lyrics full of perverted innuendo and toilet-humor served on a bedding of simple punky chords, One Fierce Beer Coaster was just what the kids in 1996 needed. The album even sports a sublime cover version of RUN-DMC’s “Tricky”. In keeping with a band that doesn’t give a s**t, the first 1,000 copies are lovingly churned out onto brown vinyl!
