Amazing GraceAmazing Grace is the fifth album by the British rock band Spiritualized, so named to indicate its considerable gospel influence. After working with free-jazz collective Spring Heel Jack on one of their albums and tour, frontman Jason Pierce was inspired to make a record with the same principles. His approach meant that the rest of Spiritualized was given the songs on the same day as they were recorded, meaning the record (including orchestral overdubs) was completed in 3 weeks. This is a huge difference compared to its predecessor, Let It Come Down, which took four years to record.1. This Little Life of Mine

Feelin' The SpiritThe finest collection of Jimmy Witherspoon's gospel songs, Feelin' the Spirit is an essential addition to any Witherspoon collection. Throughout his career, Witherspoon recorded numerous gospel songs, frequently recording two or three songs for his albums. This set, collecting many of his finest early performances, is frequently revelatory. Witherspoon's voice and style are so distinctive that they make these songs seem new, even on standards such as Amazing Grace and Rock of Ages. Never strictly a gospel artist, all of these recordings show sincerity and, more importantly, depth, both musically and spiritually.

My Home Is In The Delta
Original Ultra-Rare Cover
Remastered By Sound-Mastermind Gary Hobish
These recordings, made in 1963-64, showcase Fred McDowell in his prime. As recorded by Peter Welding, My Home Is In The Delta finds Fred and his wife, basking in the blues and gospel. Unlike Amazing Grace, which was also originally released by Testament and reissued by Sutro Park, this album is barer...a little more raw and personal....as if Fred was in a room right next to you playing the blues with his slide style that set the pace for everyone who came after. Fred McDowell is the king of the hill country blues, and My Home Is In The Delta is the crown. Includes classics such as Going Down South and Waiting For My Baby.
A true treasure, remastered for this release by sound-mastermind Gary Hobish and it is pressed on 180 gram vinyl with a beautiful tip on jacket. Note: this is the original ultra-rare cover.1. Waiting For My Baby

From Spirits and Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas)On the first look, From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas) might seem like any other Christmas album. However, the listener will soon notice that Tarja takes classical Christmas songs and brings them to a never before seen level, using her unique blend of her classically trained voice mixed with her heavy metal influences. This puts a uniquely sinister spin on traditional songs like "Amazing Grace", "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" or "Feliz Navidad", making the listener be reminded of a movie score. Besides covering classic carols, From Spirits and Ghosts also features one brand new Tarja song - "Together". This song is aligned with the dark sound of the album and embodies the theme of ghosts and mysticism throughout, in a brilliant, Tarja-styled manner, utilizing the sound of a grand orchestra.1.

Comfort Of StrangersFew vocalists equal the expressive subtlety of Beth Orton, whose fourth album is both her most musically spare and artistically complex to date. Not only does the production and backing by Jim O'Rourke (known for his work with Sonic Youth and Wilco) capture Orton's vocal style at its most unstudied and unvarnished, the lack of embellishment focuses all the more attention on her songwriting. From the jazzy phrasing on the deceptively jaunty Worms through the haunting Feral and the amazing grace of the closing, hymnlike Pieces of Sky, Orton's songs give voice to the sort of knotty, prickly emotions that are as hard to define as they are deeply felt. Most of the musical dynamic features piano or guitar over an elemental, insistent rhythm section, making the coloring of an occasional string section (Conceived), harmonica (Absinthe), or accordion (Safe in Your Arms) all the more striking. As an indication of the emotional range of this musical minimalism, the title cut is soothing enough to please fans of Norah Jones, while Heartlandstruckstop is as edgy as Patti Smith. -Don McLeese1.

9012Live - The SolosFirst Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Release
Featuring The One Time Line-up Of Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Alan White, Tony Kaye & Trevor Rabin
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso (Yes, Kansas, David Bowie)
After the amazing success of the mega platinum 90125 (FRM 9012), Yes embarked on a grand world tour in 1984 featuring the stellar line up of Jon Anderson (vocals/guitar), the late great Chris Squire(bass/vocals), Alan White (drums/vocals), as well as the return of Tony Kaye (keyboards/vocals) and new Yes member Trevor Rabin (guitar/vocals).
The tour was a stunning smash and luckily tape was rolling as they captured each member in their own cosmic and artistic space, which prevailed in each and every performance on this fine album.
This long out of print album featured crowd pleasers like Hold On and Changes from 90125, plus incredible vocal work outs from Jon Anderson on Soon from Relayer (FRM-18122) and Alan White and Chris Squire's duo solos on Whitefish. Even Amazing Grace receives an entirely new interpretation from the magical bass of Chris Squire, which is one of the finer examples of the sheer artistry and innovative music that Yes has been giving their worldwide audience for decades.
Friday Music has been releasing the artistry and impeccable YES Atlantic Records catalog now for many years, so it is with great pleasure to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of YES 9012LIVE- THE SOLOS.
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Yes) at Friday Music and Capitol Studios, Hollywood, CA, this special limited edition release is also included the original Lp sized artwork elements not seen since its original vinyl release back in 1985.1. Hold On

Songs In A&EWho would have thought that Jason Pierce's Spiritualized would have had any life in them after the rather uninspiring Amazing Grace in 2003? In the intervening five years, Pierce nearly died from double pneumonia. Near death experiences by their very nature are life-changing events. The music on Songs in A&E were recorded in that aftermath, but most of the album was written two years before he got sick; with so much of it about near death and survival, it feels like life imitating art. From the first notes of Sweet Talk, it's obvious that a very different Spiritualized is up and about; an acoustic guitar, a sparse drum kit, the voice quartet, a few horns, and a minimal bassline fuel it. Pierce sweetly croons to a loved one in waltz time; his words are
simultaneously appeasing and accusatory. The gospel chorus isn't as overblown as it was on Amazing Grace or Let It Come Down. They are in a support role, offering Pierce's reedy voice a fullness and authority it wouldn't have otherwise. The arrangement is lilting but powerful. How strange, then, the sounds of a ventilator that usher in the next track Death Take Your Fiddle: I think I'll drink myself into a coma/And I'll take every way out I can find/But morphine, codeine, Whisky, they won't alter/The way I feel/Now death is not around...Death take your fiddle/And play a song for me. Minor-key acoustic
guitar and ghostly bass frame Pierce singing a mutant folk-blues that evokes Gary Davis' Death Don't Have No Mercy. The backing vocals float
wordlessly like death angels, hovering around the vocalist and giving the tune an otherworldly quality.
But this isn't a song about dying; it's a song about coming close and cheating it; it's eerie. The proof? The next two tracks: I Gotta Fire, and Soul on
Fire. The former is a taut, Gimme Shelter-esque rocker, the latter, a lush, uptempo love song. Sitting on Fire is a beautifully orchestrated love song:
it's an admission of weakness and codependency but celebrates both of them at the same time: Baby, I'm sitting on fire/but the flames put a hole in my
heart/when we're together we stand so tall/But a part of me falls to the floor/Sets me free /I do believe it'll burn up in me for the rest of my life. Strings,
vibes, marimbas, and drums crash in to the center of the mix carrying the protagonist into oblivion. Yeah, Yeah is a scorching rocker that feels like the
Bad Seeds meeting the old Spacemen 3. You Lie You Cheat, crashes in Velvets style with acoustic guitar and screeching feedback. The chorus sings
atop a flailing drum kit, distorted strings, and wailing electric guitar. The marimbas and strings that power Baby, I'm Just a Fool, sweetly underscore a
very dark pop song, complete with da-do-da-do-dat det-det-do's. It descends into beautifully textured chaos led by a loopy violin solo over seven
minutes. Songs in A&E is the most consistent recording Spiritualized has issued since 1997's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space. It
contains the best elements of the band's signature sound, and paradoxically hedonistic yet utterly spiritual lyric themes. That said, newly focused energy,
willfully restrained arrangements, and taut compositions give the set a sheer emotional power that no Spiritualized recording has ever displayed before,
making it, quite possibly, their finest outing yet.

WonderThere's a certain humility and attitude of reverence that has long been giving birth to the undeniable excellence of Hillsong UNITED's music, and this has never been more evident than it is in the band's brand new album: Wonder.

The RIAA multi-platinum artists have been named Billboard's Christian Artist of the Year (2015 & 2016), received the American Music Award for Favorite Artist: Contemporary Inspirational (2016), and is the most followed Christian artist across all social media platforms with a collective total audience of over 9.1M.

The Worst Of Jefferson AirplaneThe '60s were a turbulent time in America as its disenfranchised youth looked to their musical heroes for many of its compelling questions. The Jefferson Airplane with Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Jack Casady, Jorma Kaukonen, Marty Balin, Skip Spence and Spencer Dryden provided their fans the answers with heavy guitars, powerful vocals and time honored classic '60s anthems like Somebody To Love, White Rabbit and Volunteers.
In 1970 RCA Victor Records honored its acid rockers Jefferson Airplane with their first greatest hits collection, the chart topping The Worst Of The Jefferson Airplane. The 15 song collection represents the finest tracks from their amazing first six albums including tracks and chart hit singles from the likes of Surrealistic Pillow, Crown Of Creation and After Bathing At Baxters.
Aside from the songs mentioned above, you also get the classic rockers Crown Of Creation, Me & You & Pooneil and We Can Be Together, as well as more introspective classics like Good Shepherd from the Volunteers album and Its No Secret from their very first album Jefferson Airplane Takes Off.

Neighb'rhood Childr'nWhen Dyan Hoffman, Rick Bolz, Ron Raschdorf and W.A. Farrens drove 350 miles through the mighty redwood groves down to San Francisco to cut their first album at Leo de Gar Kulka's Golden State Recorders, they couldn't have picked a better time. It was the summer of 1967, now known as the Summer Of Love, and San Francisco was inundated with young people from all over the world, spurred on by a blossoming rock scene that included Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Co. and the Grateful Dead. And yet, none of those legends in the making ever cut an album as hard to find these days, extremely rare and collectible, as this LP by the Neighb'rhood Childr'n.
Not only is their record hideously hard to find, it's amazingly groovy coming from four kids from a rural background. Dyan's voice has the earnest zeal of a young Grace Slick, and the complex arrangements run the table from acid-soaked tripsichord to fiery anthems meant to spur on a new generation of street-fighting men as well as lonely navigators of the mind. Not surprisingly, Dyan reveals that some of this amazing material was inspired by seeing Quicksilver Messenger Service for the first time. They were always my favorite group, she says.

We ThreeWe Three, recorded in a single session on November 14, 1958, was the first American studio date as a bandleader for the diminutive and legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes, although with pianist Phineas Newborn on board (along with bassist Paul Chambers), it really is a set dominated by Newborn, whose busy, two-handed technique here works in tandem balance with Haynes' cool refinement. Newborn was all about amazing and dazzling piano runs that on some dates created simply too much flash and clutter to allow pieces to flow and breathe properly, but Haynes has always been about grace and flow throughout his career (if a drummer's style can said to be elegant, Haynes fits the bill), and here he rubs off on Newborn, who exercises just enough restraint to keep him in the proper orbit, resulting in a fine album. Highlights include the easy, pure swing of the opener, a version of Ray Bryant's Reflection, a wonderful and bluesy rendition of Avery Parrish's After Hours (which finds Newborn in perfect balance between explosive ornamentation and smooth functionality), and a jaunty, fun spin through Newborn's own Sugar Ray, a tribute to boxer Sugar Ray Robinson. This trio had a brief recording career together, but as this solid set shows, they made the best of it.

Red OctopusMastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI from the Original RCA/Grunt Records Tapes
When Jefferson Airplane morphed successfully into Jefferson Starship in the mid-'70s, their musicianship, and recorded output was enthusiastically received and was a very important career move in the continuing story of these Bay Area superstars.
Red Octopus surely helped award them fame even further as this amazing Jefferson Starship LP went to #1 and soon became one of the many platinum plus ventures for this much loved and respected band. Their new formula worked tremendously as this watershed release featured a plethora of chart topping hits like Miracles, Play On Love, Fast Buck Freddie and There Will Be Love.
The band was rich with rock and roll history, consisting of Airplane mainstays Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Marty Balin, plus later Airplane alumnus David Freiberg (Quicksilver), Papa John Creach, and Johnny Barbata (CSN+Y, Turtles), as well as new additions Craig Chaquico and Pete Sears. Jefferson Starship truly delivered the goods with Red Octopus as this album went on to quickly become a classic rock masterpiece!
Friday Music is no stranger to releasing some of the greatest music ever recorded by Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Starship and Hot Tuna, so it is with much honor they have announced the release of the masterwork Red Octopus on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl.

The legendary Sonny & Cher set the music world on fire in the sixties and beyond with their superstar brand of classic
rock and pop music. Their music transcended into all boundaries of popular music with their brand of folk-rock, Phil Spector
wall of sound like productions, and 2 and a half minute symphonies to the ears of millions of people who wanted to hear rock
and roll love songs.
Spearheaded both by the multi-talented singer/songwriter and producer.
Sonny Bono and the grace and voice of his trend setting fashion model wife Cher, their debut 45 recording of I Got

AugustinesAugustines self titled sophomore album.
With its open-armed energy and elegiac grace, "AUGUSTINES" marks a colossal leap forward for Votiv/Oxcart recording group Augustines - no mean
feat considering the extraordinary power of their breakthrough 2011 debut, "RISE YE SUNKEN SHIPS."
"AUGUSTINES" marks a milestone on Augustines' amazing journey, the work of a gifted band ascending to new heights while simultaneously grappling
with their place in the universe. With their recent tour with Frightened Rabbit, Augustines brought their brilliant new album to a worldwide audience keen
for their return. Eric Sanderson (bass, keyboards, vocals) describes the Augustines' live shows, saying "The audience is singing, the audience is dancing,
they're all making music together. That's what we've been trying to do our whole lives as musicians, but only recently have we been able to embrace.1. Intro (I Touch Imaginary hands)

Kiss: MTV UnpluggedCelebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl
starting in 2014. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now
vinyl collectors will get what they've been demanding. All posters, sleeve art, stickers, etc that appeared in the original LP release where applicable have
been faithfully reproduced for the KISS Army.
On April 10, KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - which will be broadcast in May -
and then will kick off a summer co-headlining tour with Def Leppard starting in June.
After sinking deep into this musical celebration, even the not-so-avid listener will surely know something more about Kiss, a classic rock icon of the '70s roaring back in vibrant and passionate form. This recording of a session done expressly for the program MTV Unplugged in 1996 brought together a special group for a remarkable, if unexpected, reunion. Throughout this record, you can feel the support and raw adoration of the audience present, certainly a mixture of long-time fans and new admirers. The members of Kiss got together to rock hard on their axes and crash big on the drums, bringing a renewed sense of freshness and excitement. Nearly rock & roll legends, they exceeded expectations and, given their newfound energy, charisma, and love for the music, their performance provided the catalyst for the beginning of a successful world reunion tour. Coming Home delivers a feverish and electric opening that gets the crowd on its feet in a hurry. Soon the emotion and presence of this group are brought back with startling grace and wisdom on Plaster Caster, and the beautiful acoustic medley Goin' Blind. The decades of Kiss, their costumes, and their wild stadium shows roll back in a heartbeat through the crashing tune Do You Love Me. Perhaps one of the most bewildering tunes that really reflects the image of Kiss is the rocking blues tune Domino. The crowd is really fired up now, next experiencing the charming and soulful power rock ballad Sure Know Something. A World Without Heroes is very subdued and reflective. Rock Bottom is delicate and mysterious in the opening seconds, with a lush minor harmony delivered picking style on the acoustic. Now it gets rough, expresses Stanley, grooving in a racy blues statement. See You Tonight is a romantic and pretty ballad delivered with sweetness, and the group sings, I'll see you tonight/And if I can't, I'll cry, I'll cry/I see you tonight, outside. Then on comes the darker resonance of the band with I Still Love You, expressing grave longing after a grueling breakup. I got to make you see, is a gripping line in a haunting bridge section, before the shouted, emotional, sometimes painful chorus: Girl, it seems the price I have of losing you/Will be my hell to pay/It makes me want to die/'Cause I still love you. The solo during the bridge is reminiscent of the chord structure of the Guess Who's Undun. After this painful, depressing song, new breath is found with Every Time I Look at You, a song of forgiveness, delivered with sincerity and the feeling of hope: Every time I hold you/The things I never told you seem to come easily/'Cause you're everything to me. The bridge is brilliant and seems to elevate the melody to a gratifying level, before breaking into a chilling guitar improv, layered over with a shimmering string orchestra. Beth is the most heartwarming song of Kiss' power ballads: Beth I know you're lonely/And I hope you'll be alright/'Cause me and the boys will be playing all night. Finally, a Kiss show wouldn't be complete without the ultimate party song, Rock and Roll All Night, a tune still electric without electric guitars.
