    Greatest Hits Vol. 1

    Journey, the American Hard Rock band that was formed in 1973 and became a sensation in the early '80s, didn't fully break through until their 1982 hit 'Don't Stop Believin'.


    This Classic Rock anthem has been used in many a soundtrack, from Southpark and My Name Is Earl to Bedtime Stories, and most recently with great success as the theme tune for Glee. During their time together - both before and after their sabbatical - Journey has been prolific in their recording.


    So much so that one Greatest Hits compilation wasn't enough; Music On Vinyl is now releasing two Greatest Hits albums with 33 of Journey's best songs!


    Both volumes will be released on 180 grams audiophile vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.

    Heartbeat City

    Four-Times-Platinum Heartbeat City Survives as the Cars' Final Great Album Before Break-Up


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity LP Presents the 1984 Mutt Lange-Produced Heartbeat City In Extraordinary Sound


    Loaded With Recognizable Hits: "Drive," "You Might Think," "Magic," "Hello Again," and "Why Can't I Have You" All Top 40 Singles


    1984 will always be remembered for the debut of the Macintosh computer, the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, and the ascent of MTV as the most powerful cultural medium of the era. The year is also recognized for the Cars' savvy contributions not only to the burgeoning music-video channel but to pop itself. Released in April, the four-times platinum Heartbeat City ultimately spawned five Top 40 singles-four of them landing in the Top 20, two in the Top 10-and serve as the final memorable record from the Boston group, which disbanded in 1987.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition 180g LP of Heartbeat City revisits the landmark album via a rich fidelity unmatched by any prior edition. Signifying the first time the set has been available on vinyl in nearly three decades, this reissue opens up the soundstages, decongests the low frequencies, and shines a spotlight on Mutt Lange's pinpoint balances and glossy hooks. Indeed, the now-household-name producer would make a lasting mark with Heartbeat City, whose radio-friendly sound, multi-layered textures, and smooth, suave, synth-heavy pulses set a precedent for the period's hit-making pop.


    Overflowing with a surfeit of finger-snapping beats, electro-pop effects, streamlined guitar notes, and bright melodies, Heartbeat City trades in efficiency, catchiness, and to-the-point craftiness. Unlike most mid-80s records, the electronic effects and sleek tonalities aren't dated due to both the focused production and irresistible songwriting. Leader Ric Ocasek penned all ten tunes, and while a mind-boggling five charted in the Top 40, what makes Heartbeat City such a staple is the fact that it's easy to imagine every song on it crashing the Billboard Hot 100. Call it the new-wave version of Thriller.


    Indeed, the record's track list automatically triggers a mental jukebox. The spare simplicity and hopefulness of "Magic." The simultaneously sad longing and soothing somberness of the Benjamin Orr-sung "Drive." The shimmer and shuffling riff of "You Might Think." The ping-pong bounce and futuristic paranoia of "Hello Again." The atmospheric, arty title track. Heartbeat City is a veritable lesson in pop tunesmithship.

    You're A Very Lovely Woman

    Among folk-rock devotees and power-pop cultists, Emitt Rhodes is a legendary figure with a powerful mystique. The prodigiously talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist first came to prominence as the teenaged leader of The Merry-Go-Round, a unique L.A. baroque folk-rock quartet whose lone 1967 album is now regarded as being in the same class as the debut discs of such 60s contemporaries as the Byrds, Love, the Left Banke and the Buffalo Springfield.


    The Merry-Go-Roundwhich also included guitarist Gary Kato, ex-Leaves bassist Bill Rinehart and former Grass Roots drummer Joel Larsonscored an early hit with the infectiously jangly Live. The song (which would be covered in the 80s by the Bangles) became a major regional hit in the Los Angeles area. Lives equally distinctive B-side, Time Will Show the Wiser, was covered the following year by Fairport Convention. The bands second single, the bittersweet, orchestrated Youre a Very Lovely Woman, was an equally impressive achievement.


    Those three songs are all featured on Youre a Very Lovely Woman, which offers a consistently intoxicating mix of Beatlesque vocal harmonies, ringing folk-rock guitars, sparkling songcraft and playful baroque and psychedelic touches.


    Although The Merry-Go-Round would disband two years after releasing their only LP, the album has gained steadily in notoriety and prestige over the years. Original copies of the album have become rare collectors items, regularly changing hands for exorbitant prices among fans.


    Now, Youre a Very Lovely Woman is once again available on vinyl to thrill longtime admirers and new fans alike. Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed on high-quality high-definition vinyl, the album includes complete, meticulously reproduced original cover art.

    Toto IV

    Import


    Toto are responsible for the best sounding albums in 80s rock. With top of the range studio facilities and musicians at hand, founders David Paich, Bobby Kimball, Steve Lukather and the Porcaro brothers know how to craft a song or two. Their fourth album, released in 1982, was aptly titled IV and contains world hits "Rosanna" and "Africa". Noteworthy contestants for 'best songs' on this legendary album are "Make Believe" and "I Won't Hold You Back", both of which have proven chart success. The band was unarguably at its peak. After recording IV, Toto's members returned to the studio in order to help write and record Michael Jackson's Thriller.

    Coyote Ugly

    The latest Jerry Bruckheimer production focuses on five twenty-something women working their way through life at a fashionable bar in New York City. Four new LeAnn Rimes tracks highlight this collection. Though all from the pen of veteran songwriter Diane Warren, the tracks vary in style from diva pop (Fight the Moonlight) to sentimental musings (Please Remember). It's only a matter of time before Rimes leaves country music completely behind for the sleek modern world of mainstream pop. The remaining songs are a hodgepodge of different eras. EMF's Unbelievable and Snap's The Power hark back to the early 1990s, while Don Henley and INXS deliver the dancebeat kick of the '80s. The firing fiddle of the Charlie Daniels Band's 1979 hit The Devil Went Down to Georgia seems out of context here. But then, this bar must have one odd jukebox to begin with. --Rob O'Connor

    Stray Cats

    Stray Cats is the first album from Rockabilly band Stray Cats, first released in the UK by Arista in 1981. It was successful in Britain, peaking at No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart, and produced the UK Top 40 hits Runaway Boys (No. 9), Stray Cat Strut (No. 11) and Rock This Town (No. 9). The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later listed Rock This Town as one of the songs that shaped rock and roll.


    Stray Cats debut album came hot on the heels of the two hit singles Runaway Boys and Rock This Town, both energy filled rockabilly songs that hearkened back to the 1950s era of pure rock & roll with an updated, clean '80s sound highlighted by the prominent double bass playing of Lee Rocker and drumming of Slim Jim Phantom.


    This album was by far their most successful, hitting number six in the charts and their only entry into the Top 40.

    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso


    First Time Gatefold Cover Artwork


    Ann and Nancy Wilson have been continually hammering out some of the greatest rock recordings over the last several decades. Their staying power is second to none, and their status as one of classic rock's premier icon acts is legendary.


    After a major explosion with their first releases like Dreamboat Annie and Little Queen, Heart roared back to the top of the charts a decade later with their astounding debut Capitol album Heart. The mega-platinum 1985 smash contained their most successful 80's hit singles and rock tracks like the guitar blazing What About Love, the rock belters Nothing At All and Never, plus the acoustic powerhouse classic ballad These Dreams.


    Note for note, song for song, Heart's self-titled masterpiece Heart is recognized as one of the classiest, hippest and equally creative musical affairs ever waxed and continues to be one of their most loved albums in their very long and captivating catalog.


    It is with much respect and honor to continue the Heart /Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl series with the summer release of their incredible masterwork Heart. Impeccably mastered from the original Capitol Records tapes by Joe Reagoso, Heart is truly a classic masterpiece now impeccably revisited in the audiophile domain.


    For this limited edition first time 180 Gram Audiophile vinyl release, we are also including a first time rare gatefold cover, which includes all of the original graphics as you remember them. It's just another special extra to go along with the amazing excitement that this HQ vinyl release delivers.

    Missing In Action

    The first new Missing Persons studio album in over 25 years featuring the unmistakable voice of '80s new wave icon, influential lead singer Dale Bozzio.


    Such memorable hits as "Words," "Destination Unknown," and "Walking In L.A." made Missing Persons a household name in the '80s and a staple of early MTV thanks in part to the cutting edge fashion statements of Bozzio, which inspired the likes of Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Lady GaGa, and others.


    Written and produced by the multi-talented Billy Sherwood (William Shatner / Prog Collective) who worked closely with Bozzio to create an album that can stand alongside the rest of the Missing Persons catalog while bringing a modern twist that fans will appreciate.

    Risque


    Celebrate 35 Years Of Chic!


    Impeccably Mastered From The Original Atlantic Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl!


    In 1977, Chic (Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson)
    hit the upper rungs of the charts with their smash debut Lp Chic featuring Dance, Dance, Dance as well as the killer funk of Everybody
    Dance. A year later, their fortunes multiplied to the top of the charts with C'est
    Chic (FRM-19299 ) The #1 LP featuring the huge chart toppers Le Freak and
    I Want Your Love, Chic truly were at the top of their game around the world.
    With all of these hits accumulated in a very short time, Chic roared back
    with their huge best-selling platinum plus smash Risque. The seven song funk
    and dance masterpiece would go on to include one of the biggest songs of
    the era with the #1 Good Times. It's familiar and stunning guitar riff and its
    powerful bass and drum attack would prove even more rewarding a few
    years later, as Good Times would go on to be sampled and develop another
    shelf life all its own thanks to the '80s rap movement.


    Further hit tracks blew wide open as My Forbidden Lover and My
    Feet Keep Dancing all became classic dance, soul and pop hits throughout
    the rest of 1979 into 1980 making Risque one of the best-selling albums of
    its time.


    RisquÉ has been out of print on vinyl now for several decades .that
    is until now!


    Friday Music is very proud to continue The Chic 180 Gram Audiophile

    Goodbye Cruel World


    Elvis Costello Goodbye Cruel World on Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity


    1984 Album Produced by Top Production Team of Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley: Several Songs Enhanced With Top-Flight Horn Arrangements


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity 180g LP is the Sonically Definitive Version


    Costello and the Attractions Survive Dreadful 80s With Songs Concerning Loss, Identity, and Matters of the Heart


    Part of Mobile Fidelity's Elvis Costello Reissue Series: Singer-Songwriter's First Eleven Studio Albums Available on Sumptuously Sounding 180g LP


    Elvis Costello wasn't in a happy place when he began writing Goodbye Cruel World. His marriage collapsed between the record's start and finish. He was also dealing with what he deems the dreadful 80s-a period in which the importance of videos trumped musical merit, the government in his native England engaged in controversial conflicts, and nuclear threats hovered over daily life like a black cloud. What possible good came out of the age? A smart batch of songs that stands up to many of the singer-songwriter's better-known works and an underrated record that now sounds better than ever.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, this collectable edition of Goodbye Cruel World joins Mobile Fidelity's acclaimed Costello reissues series in presenting the icon's most vital records in rich, dynamic, three-dimensional analog sound. Akin to many albums from the era, Goodbye Cruel World was hampered by bright, slick textures on the original pressings and digital counterparts. Here, Costello's fare is revealed to possess a warmer, more organic and intimate character. Costello's voice, as well as his band's nimble rhythms and Steve Nieve's R&B-spiked piano, occupy their own spaces amidst a wide, unconstrained soundstage.


    The improvements rendered by this numbered, limited-edition LP bring significantly new perspective to Costello's mordantly witty songs addressing everything from stark romantic loss to erotic desire. Produced by the hit-making team of Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, Goodbye Cruel World reflects the polish of the day in places but now reveals a deeper soulfulness, grit, and honesty. Such aspects particularly come to fore on multiple tunes featuring saxophonists Gary Barnacle, trombonist Jim Paterson, and percussionist Luis Jardim-the very first guests ever welcomed on an Attractions album.


    With added instrumental assistance, Costello and Co. traverse styles ranging from rambunctious new-wave rock (The Deportees Club) to frisky New Orleans-derived blues (Sour Milk Cow Blues) to suave, jazzy pop (The Only Flame In Town). In the closing Peace In Our Time, a sobering albeit optimistic song whose verses still apply to contemporary times, Costello crafts the finale to a socio-politically conscious trilogy that began with Shipbuilding and Pills and Soap. It alone is the worth the price of admission to a record that's long deserved a better reputation and, with Mobile Fidelity's reissue, finally gets its just desserts.

    The Iggy Pop / Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl + Gatefold LP Artwork


    Features David Bowie, Simple Minds, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) & Ivan Kral (Patti Smith Group) & Barry Andrews (XTC)


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Capitol Records & Manufactured At R.T.I.


    A Definitive "Rock Of The 80's" Classic Album


    Iggy Pop continues to be known as one of the original pioneers of
    the punk rock and underground rock movement of the late sixties and
    seventies. Thrilling audiences with The Stooges or with his own innovative
    solo projects, Iggy's iconic history shows a plethora of amazing albums
    over the last 4 decades, truly creating some of the coolest music ever
    waxed for the classic rock era.


    In 1980, Iggy Pop delivered his hard hitting 80's alternative classic
    Soldier for Arista Records. Featuring the David Bowie collaboration Play
    It Safe, Solider was a solid effort which continues to be one of his most
    revered albums to this day. This stunning release featured a good amount
    of staple Iggy Pop classics like I'm A Conservative, Mr. Dynamite, Dog
    Food and the hard rockin' Take Care Of Me. Augmented with powerhouse
    musicians like Ivan Kral (Patti Smith Group), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols),
    Barry Andrews (XTC) and uncredited support from David Bowie and
    Simple Minds, this amazing 80's power punk classic hasn't been available
    on vinyl for many decades... that is until now!


    As another installment in our Iggy Pop series, Friday Music is
    very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 Gram
    Audiophile Vinyl presentation of Soldier by the legendary Iggy Pop.
    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (David Bowie/Iggy Pop/Alice
    Cooper) at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood and
    manufactured at R.T.I., this original Arista Records classic truly reaches
    great sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain. For a limited time, we
    have also included the colorful artwork elements in a first time gatefold
    cover, featuring the rare lyric insert art - now a part of the inside LP cover
    presentation.

    The Stranger

    Ranked 67/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Billy Joel has become the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in the United States. He has had multiple Top 10 hits in the '80s and '90s, all of which he wrote singlehandedly. He is also a six-time Grammy Award winner, has sold over 100 million records worldwide and was inducted into almost every Hall of Fame there exists. Joel retired from recording pop music in 1993 but continues to tour, often with Elton John.


    'The Stranger' is his fifth studio album, originally released in 1977. While his four previous albums had been moderate chart successes, this was his breakthrough album. It remains Joel's best-selling non-compilation album to date. 'The Stranger' contains nine songs, many of which are now considered "classic Joel". Much of the album's success is attributed to Joel's collaboration with producer Phil Ramone, whose innovative production methods complemented Joel's songs. This fruitful collaboration would continue for a decade.


    Whereas a handful of Joel's preceding efforts feature a near-flawless mix of melodic arrangements and poignant lyrics, the aspects he sought in order to graduate into a more serious artist arrive here via Ramone's more muscular, fleshed-out, and rock-enabling production. The streamlined approach slightly strips back the sweeping developments heard on Piano Man and Turnstiles, and on this edition, lays bare the core of the material, allowing the vocalist's bittersweet yearning, rollicking 88 notes, and working-class conviction to emanate with full-bodied detail, vivid color, and grand-scale dynamics.


    A Grammy winner for both Record and Song of the Year, "Just the Way You Are" epitomizes Joel's balladic reach, his ability to transfer wistful sentiments and lovelorn emotions. He also flashes a mean streak. The animated "Only the Good Die Young" bounces and hops to an updated classic-R&B rhythm and, underneath its beauty, "She's Always A Woman" hints at trouble underfoot. And then there's the New York-centric, character-rich poetry of the vignettes.


    Akin to many of his influences, Joel nails the grit, personality, specificity, descriptiveness, and behavior of protagonists that populate "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" and "Scenes From an Italian Diner," each equally at home on The Stranger as well as on a Broadway play or on a golden-era Hollywood film soundtrack. No wonder that, just months after its original release, Joel was no longer a stranger to any of the music-loving public. He would never look back.

    Lovers Rock

    Import

    Remastered


    'Lovers Rock' is the 5th studio album by the English singer Sade (born Helen Folasade Adu), released on 14 November 2000 by Epic Records. The album reached number eighteen on the UK Albums Chart and number 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200. it has since been certified triple platinum by the RIAA. 'Lovers Rock' earned Sade the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. She is the most successful solo female artist in the UK, having sold over 50 million albums.


    From the early 80's on Sade and her band produced a string of hit albums, from debut album Diamond Life in 1984 up to Lovers Rock in 2000 (a new album is released in February 2010). Changing a winning team never was a good plan and Sade, accompanied by longtime associates Stuart Matthewman, Andrew Hale and Paul Denman, managed to deliver an elegant, smooth-yet-not-too-slick-sounding album. Pioneering the Nu Soul genre roughly 10 years before her US colleagues, Sade is definitely one of a kind!


    Worthy of a 10th anniversary audiophile pressing, we gave 'Lovers Rock' the 180 grams vinyl treatment, for your aural pleasure!

    House Arrest


    Sure The Doldrums and Worn Copy had some hits and humdingers on them, but Ariel Pink's 2002 album House Arrest never lets up. Its hit after hit after hit. Sorta like if you listened to your friends boom box mix tape from Top 40 radio around 1985.


    Think you've heard enough Ariel Pink? Well our favorite omnivorous media junkie from LA still has a few tricks left up his sleevelike the left-of-center House Arrest. Sure The Doldrums and Worn Copy had some hits and humdingers on them, but House Arrest never lets up. It's hit after hit after hit. Sorta like if you listened to your friend's boom box mix tape from Top 40 radio around 1985. Some people might think that sounds like a recipe for disaster. We say bring on the Doritos.


    Originally released in 2002 as part of a split double-CD set, then re-released with a couple of bonus tracks (including the multipart epic Netherlands) in 2006, House Arrest, much like every other Ariel Pink release so far, provides a small sampling of Ariel Rosenberg's self-recorded compositions, laid down on a trusty eight-track at home. Unlike so many warbling troubadours who seem to think the recorded-in-a-bedroom approach means a license to be maudlin, Rosenberg brings an exuberant joy to his work, finding something that a full band recording might actually kill the spirit of. The queasy tones and gently distanced verses of the opening Hardcore Pops Are Fun is instant put-a-smile-on-your-face stuff, helping to set the tone for the whole collection. The demented synth pop merriment of Flying Circles suggests an '80s nugget swathed in psychedelic haze, a gentle breeziness apparent on many other songs like the giddy Every Night I Die at Miyagis or the nervous funk of Alisa, easily one of the best songs on the album thanks to some exquisite vocals in particular. Though his connection to personal hero R. Stevie Moore is often mentioned, Rosenberg's role model here often seems to be Andy Partridge instead -- check out the distinctly XTC-like hiccupping on Gettin' High in the Morning, not to mention the quick herky-jerk arrangements. Rosenberg's preference to add layers of echo on his voice means sometimes his lyrics only emerge in fits and starts, but when they do they often are wryly witty or amusingly theatrical -- it fits with the amusing rock pose on the back cover, a knowing embrace of a trope. So when he sings about how West Coast calamities are worth more than the East Coast variety or how he's one of those egomaniacs who just want to siiiing, who's to deny how he plays around with the ideas?
