    It Feels Like Christmas Time

    Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, purveyors of American big band, jumpin' jazz and blues have a special holiday gift for naughty and nice fans alike. The multiplatinum
    selling, Grammy nominated band is back with a holiday album entitled It Feels Like Christmas Time, an all new recording for Savoy Jazz,
    featuring twelve songs, a mix of traditional favorites and original material.


    It Feels like Christmas Time, the band's tenth studio album, follows the release of Rattle Them Bones - the record that put Big Bad back at the top of
    charts last year reaching #1 on the Jazz Album Chart on both iTunes and Amazon and was the highest debut on the Billboard Jazz Chart entering at #2.


    It Feels Like Christmas Time, produced by BBVD founding member and lead singer Scotty Morris with band-mate, pianist and arranger Joshua Levy and
    mixed by Morris, was recorded In Los Angeles at East West and Capitol studios. The album includes the Morris original "It Feels Like Christmas Time,"
    and features guest harmonies by vocal group She, Her and I as well as a duet with newcomer Anna Kasper on the classic What Are You Doing New
    Year's Eve? The album also features the crowd favorite "Christmas Is Starting Now" from Disney's Phineus and Ferb.

    Elvis' Christmas Album (Speakers Corner)

    Wild rock'n'roll and Christian spirituality at Christmastide are impossible to bring together musically, one might think. But Elvis, who in the Fifties was climbing as steadily up the ladder of success as Father Christmas coursed the sky in his sleigh, certainly pulled off this feat in his Christmas Album with its mixture of popular Christmas songs and seasonal evergreens. The 'King' delivers a rocking version of Santa Claus Is Back In Town just as successfully as Peace In The Valley, an inspirational gospel song praising nature. Of course it goes without saying that White Christmas - the most-recorded Christmas hit, which in the Bing Crosby version alone achieved sales of 35 million - is included on the album. And Elvis's sentimental interpretation of Silent Night may well have made its contribution to the immortality of the former truck driver from Tennessee. Back on this earth the original LP exchanges hands for around US$ 500 when the gift tag is still attached. And because it's Christmas, the coveted sticker can be found on the re-release.



    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Elvis-NBC TV Special


    The Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrating The 45th Anniversary Of The NBC TV Special "1968 Comeback" Soundtrack Album!


    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as
    a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys.
    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the
    legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King of Rock and Roll" trademark to his name.


    Over the next three decades, Elvis Presley would release dozens of hit albums and tons of smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in over 35
    top charting films, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all time. In 1968, after a
    series of very successful movies and top charting recordings, Elvis made a wise decision to work with the folks at NBC and develop a Christmas TV special,
    which would have The King perform in front of a live studio audience for the first time in years.
    This legendary career move spread like wildfire and soon was hailed as "The Comeback," further igniting his career to an all new high. The King
    took his shows to the theatres and casinos and super massive stadium tours over the next number of years, while releasing a plethora of even more gold
    and platinum recordings


    With the soundtrack album nearing release, it was already gaining popularity in advance thanks to the chart single smash If I Can Dream. This
    masterwork album included a treasure trove of rare television studio performances that captured a very great time in the musical history of this genius.
    In addition to the wonderful hit single aforementioned, The King reaches back to his early Memphis days with his first chart topper Heartbreak
    Hotel and more fifties classics like Lawdy Miss Clawdy, All Shook Up and even a pair of Jimmy Reed blues classics with Big Boss Man and Baby, What
    You Want Me to Do.


    Even more hit tracks and sensational medleys featuring Elvis classics abound including Guitar Man, Blue Christmas, Love Me Tender and Can't
    Help Falling in Love. Plus the beautiful ballad Memories is also included which has since become an Elvis fan favorite thanks to the wonderful production
    on this brilliant album.
    Elvis Presley's TV Special album would go on to become one of his biggest albums ever, as fans rushed to the stores to buy this stunning rock and
    roll soundtrack back in December of 1968. Initially pressed on vinyl, this amazing album has been out of print on vinyl for several decades that is until
    now!

    Limited Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Records classic Elvis - TV Special by Elvis Presley.

    Seductive Reasoning (Speakers Corner)

    Thanks to their undeniable musical talent, which allowed them to be taken seriously in the folk scene, the industrious Roche sisters' career began when they were young. The duo began by singing Christmas carols, doo-wop song syllable puzzles, and tricky barbershop harmonies. They finally caught the attention of Paul Simon, who brought the gifted girls in as backup singers on his LP There Goes Rhymin' Simon, and was primarily responsible for the birth of their first recording. The lavishly produced album achieved high critical acclaim. Although it was a worthy professional debut, the public was hesitant to buy the album. The specialist magazine Rolling Stone commented drily and somewhat at a loss that the Roches weren't everyone's cup of tea.



    Maggie and Terre Roche are a well-rehearsed vocal team however: with a range from hazy, finely balanced voices singing as one, right up to pearly, radiant brilliance, the Roche sisters enthusiastically penned a songbook which is almost without exception their very own creation. Mechanical bluegrass music (Wigglin' Man), a steam-train character (If You Emptied ...) and a somewhat crude and unrefined country aura make the subtle lyrics easily accessible to all, but the LP also offers the listener wonderfully ill-humoured verse (The Mountain People) and story-like prose (West Virginia). This is a truly exceptional album, and well worth being discovered!

    • Maggie Roche (piano, guitar)

    • Terre Roche (guitar)

    • Paul Simon (guitar)

    • Pete Carr (guitar)

    A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector (Out Of Stock)

    Ranked 142/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    In 1963, visionary producer Phil Spector, then at the peak of his creativity and cultural influence, created one of the first and still one of the greatest rock n roll Christmas albums. Using the artist roster of his Philles label the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love and Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeansand the legendary studio musicians of the Wrecking Crew, Spector applied his fabled Wall of Sound to a set of Christmas pop standards and holiday-themed originals.


    The resulting album brilliantly merges the holiday spirit with the singular sonic uplift of the Spector sound. Highlights include the Ronettes bubbly reworkings of Sleigh Ride, Frosty the Snowman and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, the Crystals upbeat renditions of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Darlene Loves soulful readings of Winter Wonderland, White Christmas and the Ellie Greenwich/Jeff Barry/Phil Spector composition Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). A Christmas Gift for You concludes with a rare on-mike appearance by Spector himself, delivering a spoken holiday message to listeners.


    A Christmas Gift for You originally had the misfortune of being released on November 22, 1963, the same day as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and was not a major commercial success. In the years since, however, it has been embraced as a beloved pop-culture touchstone, with many of its tracks becoming holiday airplay favorites. Longtime Spector fan Brian Wilson has named it as his all-time favorite LP. The albums influence has also been reflected in cover versions by contemporary artists. Bruce Springsteen based his interpretation of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town on the Crystals Spectorized version, while U2 closely followed Darlene Loves original when covering Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).
