ABC 1974 (Black Vinyl)The history of the ever mighty Rush goes back to 1968 when the group first got together, but it was not until 1974 that the band proper with Neal Peart joining Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson to make for the line-up we have known and loved ever since came to the fore.
Peart joined just two weeks before Rushs first US tour and it was during this American jaunt that the guys played the infamous Agora Ballroom, Cleveland - a venue at which the group would go onto play numerous more shows during their formative years.
At their 1974 booking however, radio station WMMS radio was on hand to broadcast the whole event across the airwaves and thus make this particular gig a somewhat notorious event as well as being Rushs very first radio broadcast
The set played by the group that hot August evening in Americas dark industrial underbelly, includes songs from their debut album, Rush, and features two early versions of cuts from their sophomore record, Fly by Night
The show also contained a cover of Larry Williams Bad Boy a 1950s rocker and no mistake - plus incredibly, two excellent tracks that have never been released on any previous Rush release; the super-rare Fancy Dancer and Garden Road, both composed in their very earliest incarnation before Neal Peart was on board
The package is completed by three bonus tracks from their second US broadcast, back at the ABC a year later, and again courtesy of their by then long time champions, WMMR Cleveland
All three songs from the 75 set originated on Fly By Night

Radio CinematicJonathan Jackson is a five-time Daytime EMMY Award-winning actor for his role in General Hospital, and currently stars in the ABC primetime drama Nashville. Jonathan is also known for his roles in film, including Columbia's Deep End of the Ocean Disney's Tuck Everlasting and Warner Bros. Insomnia.
The foundations of Jonathan Jackson and his band Enation started with brothers Jonathan and Richard Jackson. Having been raised in Battle Ground, WA they moved to Hollywood, CA to pursue careers as actors at the ripe ages of 10 and 13. Music was in their blood, as their father Ricky Lee Jackson was a Nashville recording country music artist. Jonathan picked up the guitar and began writing songs and Richard had been playing drums since elementary school. Sibling rivalry turned into a synergy of complementary talent as the brothers began to play music together over the ensuing years, culminating in the partnership that is currently Enation along with longtime friend bass player Daniel Sweatt. The band spent the past year recording Radio Cinematic in Nashville, TN. Richard is also an actor who has appeared in film and television, most recently in Grimm.1. Young World's Riot

Modern Sounds in Country and Western MusicImport
Less modern for its country-R&B blend (Elvis Presley and company did it in 1955) and lushly produced C&W tone (the Nashville sound cropped up in the late '50s) than for its place as a high-profile crossover hit, Modern Sounds in Country and Western fit right in with Ray Charles' expansive musical ways while on the Atlantic label in the '50s. In need of even more room to explore, Charles signed with ABC Paramount and eventually took full advantage of his contract's full artistic freedom clause with this collection of revamped country classics.
Covering a period from 1939 to the early '60s, the 12 tracks here touch on old-timey fare (Floyd Tillman's It Makes No Difference to Me Now), honky tonk (three Hank Williams songs), and early countrypolitan (Don Gibson's I Can't Stop Loving You). Along with a Top Ten go at Eddy Arnold's You Don't Know Me, the Gibson cover helped the album remain at the top of the pop charts for nearly three months and brought Charles international fame. Above a mix of swinging big band charts by Gerald Wilson and strings and choir backdrops from Marty Paich, Charles' intones the sleepy-blue nuances of country crooners while still giving the songs a needed kick with his gospel outbursts. No pedal steel or fiddles here, just a fine store of inimitable interpretations.1. Bye Bye, Love

13 Never-Before-Released LIVE Recordings!
In the years immediately prior to the British Invasion, only one performer rivaled the chart dominance of Elvis Presley, and that was Pat Boone. With his trademark white buck shoes, perfectly combed hair and gleaming smile, Boone was the very essence of wholesome American values, and at a time when the rise of Rock 'n Roll was viewed as a sign of the Apocalypse, he made the music appear safe and non-threatening, earning some 38 Top 40 hits in the process. In 1957 Pat Boone began hosting his own ABC television series, The Pat Boone Chevy Showroom. The half-hour variety show aired from October 3, 1957 to June 23, 1960 and featured the young star [at the time the youngest person to host their own network variety program] and a host of top-name guest stars. In all, there were 115 episodes.
In this special collection of never-before-released LIVE recordings, Pat has hand picked 13 memorable performances that pay tribute to some of the best music and entertainers of that time.1. Pat Boone & Ella Fitzgerald: I Wish I Were In Love Again

You Don't Mess Around With JimJim Croce was one of the premier architects of the singer/songwriter movement in the early '70s, and during his much revered musical career, he managed to successfully cultivate his story telling, humor and heartfelt thoughts and heartbreak into some of the most memorable songs and melodies ever recorded in our lifetime. His legendary ABC recordings are the soundtrack to a generation of music enthusiasts that continues to this day and will forever stand the test of time.
Growing up in the Philadelphia suburb of Upper Darby, PA, Jim Croce graduated high school and soon found local success as a folk-singer during his college days. In those earlier years, he met his future wife and musical partner Ingrid Croce, and together they began touring the coffee house circuit throughout the '60s into the early-'70s.
After a few short lived careers in radio advertising, as well as being a truck driver and welder, Jim Croce was determined to score a hit recording career and went out as a solo artist, teaming up with his lead guitarist Maury Muehleisen. Friends Tommy West and Terry Cashman were soon a part of the mix as producers, and the hit records soon followed. His debut ABC Records single and album You Don't Mess Around With Jim were a huge success for this legendary performer.
Known for his uncanny ability to connect with his fans with his simple tales of love, heartbreak and good time feel good songs, this multi-platinum album raced to the top of the charts in no time. Spearheaded by the country rock title track, the album was buoyed with even more success as the brilliant Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels) hit a chord in the hearts of his new legion of fans across the globe.
Whether standout tracks like his classics Photographs And Memories, New York's Not My Home or his masterpiece Time In A Bottle, Croce's You Don't Mess Around With Jim album has surely earned its currency over the years as one of the more important albums of the classic singer/songwriter era. After several more smash hit recordings and a massive worldwide following, Time In A Bottle was featured a year later in the made for television movie She Lives! which added to the further success of his classic You Don't Mess Around With Jim album.
A few weeks later, Croce along with guitarist Muehleisen and several others were tragically killed in a small plane crash on September 20, 1973. The music world was in shock as one of its newest stars, a true original, the great Jim Croce, his life was cut short way before his prime. Radio and retail outlets were flooded with fan support as a race to buy this album, which became a lasting tribute to the artistry and memory of this legendary performer.
Friday Music now ushers in the Jim Croce Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their first installment of his monumental pop/rock classic You Don't Mess Around With Jim. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso from the original tapes at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, the You Don't Mess Around With Jim album is truly one of the more anticipated audiophile vinyl releases of 2012.

The OutsidersOne of music's most electrifying entertainers and prolific songwriters, EMI Records Nashville's Eric Church, releases his fourth studio
album, the aptly titled, THE OUTSIDERS. The release is the follow-up to his CMA and ACM Album of the Year, CHIEF, which has gone
on to sell over 1.5 million records and produce two No. 1 singles, "Drink In My Hand" and "Springsteen" and three Top 10 hits since it's June 2011
Church shared the news exclusively with Associated Press' Chris Talbott remarking, I'm interested to see what people think about them. I always say the
songs are mine till the moment we release them, then they're the fans' (songs). I'm very anxious. I have a lot of anxiety to see what people think about
what we've done."
Church performed the album title and lead single, "The Outsiders," on The 47th Annual CMA Awards, airing live on ABC Television on Wednesday, Nov.
6, where he was nominated for two CMA Awards this year: Male Vocalist and Musical Event of the Year (with Jason Aldean and Luke
Bryan for "The Only Way I Know"). The song is an ode to the manner in which Church and his fans have built his career, as an inclusive group together
fighting to have his music heard.
Jay Joyce once again joins Church for production and songwriting collaborations. Church started writing for the release in 2012 while on his arena tour,
Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour. Talbott notes, "Some of the most striking moments [on THE OUTSIDERS] would seem odd to your local program director.
There's a dark trilogy, for instance, that includes a dramatic recitation of the Shel Silverstein poem 'The Devil and Billy Markham.' 'Roller Coaster Ride'
actually feels just like one. And album-closer, 'The Joint,' is an oddly affecting cross of Tom Waits and J.J. Cale."1. The Outsiders

The Genius Sings the BluesNumbered Limited-Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity
1961 Collection Gathers 12 Must-Have Songs from Charles' Peak Era
Mobile Fidelity Has Righted the Sonic Wrongs That Plagued Earlier Versions - You Won't Find a Better-Sounding Ray Charles LP
Genius doesnt even begin to describe the greatness of The Genius Sings the Blues. Comprised of a dozen songs Ray Charles made between 1952 and 1960, the collection was released in 1961 by Atlantic Records to counter the singers migration to rival ABC Paramount. What Atlantic originally underestimated is that the album contained many of Charles greatest works, all unified by their bluesy emotions and stirring arrangements. A classic of the soul and R&B canon, The Genius Sings the Blues is a snapshot of the evolution of timeless American music captured by the pianists indelible rhythmic pace, gospel roots, jazz backgrounds, and Southern-styled accents. And its never sounded so good.
From the iconic cover art (a photo of Charles taken by legendary photographer Lee Friedlander) to the distinguished music within, everything about the thematic record is iconic. Now, nearly 50 years later, it can be heard in pristine fidelity sourced from the original mono master tapes. Mobile Fidelitys engineers have taken great pains to ensure that every clink of the piano keys, ache of Charles rolling voice, and rush of the backing arrangements sounds better than they have since first being recorded in the studio. This 180g LP simply lays waste to the competition.
Previous editions of The Genius Sings the Blues, including a remastered digital edition from Rhino, suffered from varying levels, distracting static and noise, and inconsistent vocal balances. Mobile Fidelity has gone back to the original mono master tapes to correct these problems, giving music lovers what is now unquestionably the best-sounding Charles album to stem from his peak era. And these performances are simply on fire.
Whether inhabiting the sadness in Night Time (Is the Right Time) or personifying the loss of Hard Times, Charles invests each song with supreme emotion and undeniable conviction that makes the lyrics ring true and the blues resonate with cathartic pathos. Uptempo country blues numbers (Im Movin On, Early in the Mornin) balance the mournful slow fare, and again prove Charles a master composer, interpreter, and musician who could make any style his own. The Genius Sings the Blues also speaks to legendary jazz pianist Billy Taylors initial impressions of Charles upon hearing him in a way in which few other Charles recordings do.
Taylor recalled: While playing through some new music for a projected Ruth Brown record date, I was asked to listen to an original song played and sung by a young composer and pianist from Seattle, Washington. I can still remember how surprised I was to hear this kind of music from a Northwesterner. He reminded me of Charles Brown, another pianist-singer who was very popular in the Forties, but he had a very personal sound and there was something different about his rhythmic approach. In his handling of melody he seemed to be using devices similar to those used by Dinah Washington and a small group of popular singers who allowed their gospel singing backgrounds to influence their interpretation of popular songs... I was intrigued by the emotional quality projected by both his piano playing and his unusual voice and was not surprised when Ahmet ErtegÜn said that he wanted to let the young musician record some of his own material. He communicates just like the old blues singers, Ahmet said.
Indeed, that innate blues aesthetic dominates this collection, as does Charles distinctive rhythmic mannerisms. Finally, hear them as theyve always been intended to be experienced.

BootstrapsBootstraps is a singer/songwriter/alt-rock band formed in LA, fronted by Jordan Beckett.
Liza Richardson award winning music supervisor and KCRW DJ, calls Bootstraps her, Secret weapon that no one else really knows about. It's true,
Bootstraps are relatively unknown to the public, however they've racked up a string of high profile TV and film placements, landed on elite top-10 Best
Album of the Year lists, garnered awards and won over the industry's most selective audience. Their debut has built momentum from what Liza calls an
instantly likable, intelligent and signature sound that the Examiner labeled as Americana-laced gorgeousness and Paste Magazine paralleled to Ray
La Montayne, with hints of Bon Iver and Band of Horses .
After being named Hydrogen Magazine's "Band to Watch" singer Jordan Beckett spoke about their unique recording process. We tracked the album live,
the old fashioned way with help from Richard Dodd (Civil Wars, Kings of Leon) who enhanced this vision in the studio.
The singer concluded, Live recording as a full band is just that, it's alive, making it possible to capture moments and the feeling that makes music music.
That feeling has translated on ABC, NBC and CBS shows and at the Nashville Film Festival where the band took home the prestigious 'Best Music in a
Film award. These accolades have merely set the stage for their debut album to break out beyond music industry insiders.1. Road Noise

CirclesIn the years since [Soul Coughing's] 1999 breakup, [Mike Doughty] has re-emerged as a top-notch singer-songwriter, seemingly eager to shed the ghosts of his past. So ultimately, it was a nice surprise when, earlier this year, he announced he was going to do an album of re-imagined versions of tracks he originally recorded with Soul Coughing. If you've listened to any one of the band's albums, you probably can understand why there has been a little cult following built behind their work.
On "Circles Super Bon Bon " Doughty reclaims the songs and, most likely, delivers them in ways he had originally imagined. In interviews, he has discussed how he would have to fight for songs to sound a certain way. Sometimes, he would have to concede. So one could look at this album as a revisionist exercise. How his former bandmates feel about this is unknown. But, the big surprise is he actually improves and/or nicely compliments the vast majority of these cuts.
Much of the record is given more of a pop sheen than one probably would expect. The effect works. Sure, some of the songs were hits in their original form (like "Super Bon Bon" and "Circles," for instance) but the collection's revelatory moments generally stem from the songs that didn't get airplay.
"The Idiot Kings," in its original form, had a brooding, heavy, driving quality. The version here is infinitely brighter, thanks to a choice key change and a well-used drum loop.
"True Dreams of Wichita" was originally an upright-bass driven lament. In its new form, it loses no intensity while it ends up sounding like a more complete cousin to Primitive Radio Gods' 1996 hit, "Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand."
In fact, the album on the whole seems celebratory. Doughty is aiming these songs at an audience willing to dance. "How Many Cans" and "Sleepless," which were originally both slow-building, almost meditative dirges packed with an underlying sense of menace, now bounce around with newly reinforced backbones.
This album demonstrates that Soul Coughing really should've had more hits and Doughty deserves respect as one of his generation's keenest songwriters. While Doughty, himself, was probably exorcising personal demons by re-imagining these songs, in the process, he has given them a second life.
Any fan of Soul Coughing should find this album, at the very least, to be a fascinating companion-piece to the original takes. In this surprising move, Doughty does his legacy proud. While some favorites may have not made the track list, this album, nevertheless, is a reminder of these songs' lasting endurance. This is Doughty's well-earned victory lap.
