    Wildwood Flower


    180 Gram Clear Vinyl


    We lost an American treasure on May 15, 2003
    with the passing of June Carter Cash. We are proud
    to offer for the first time on vinyl, June Carter
    Cash's final multi-GRAMMY winning recording,
    Wildwood Flower. The album has been entirely
    re-mastered for vinyl and is offered on premium
    180 gram, clear wax.


    A complete document of the Carter Family legacy, Wildwood Flower brings
    June full circle back to her musical beginnings. Recorded from October 2002
    to March 2003 in Mother Maybelle's childhood home in Mace's Springs, Virginia. June is joined by Johnny Cash and A.P. & Sarah Carter's children Joe and Janette Carter, daughter Carlene Carter and grandchildren Laura Cash and Tiffiany Carter Lowe. The songs are a combination of Carter family classics and
    originals penned by June and are lovingly produced by June and Johnny Cash's
    son, John Carter Cash. Wildwood Flower contains the last ever recorded duets between June Carter and Johnny Cash and is a Carter/Cash family experience that reminds us why they are country music royalty.

    Christmas Extraordinaire (Awaiting Repress)

    Christmas Extraordinare is another innovative and heartfelt collection of seasonal treasures played on a combination of 18th-century instruments and modern-day synthesizers, drums, and electric guitars. While not the first to marry different ages of musical instruments, Davis and his cohorts use them with imagination and an intensity that gives new life and drama to this rather inert genre.


    For material, Mannheim Steamroller asked their fans to choose their favorite holiday selections and vote on their Web site. The results of the poll are a fine mix of old and new--with slightly more emphasis on the modern--ranging from the bracing Fum, Fum, Fum, a traditional Catalan carol, to Tchaikovsky's Faeries from The Nutcracker. Mannheim Steamroller imbues this beloved song with an almost militaristic edge, grounding it with an ominous tuba that gives the usually fey Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies an edgy tension. Winter Wonderland is a spectacular work, bordering on prog rock, as if Emerson, Lake & Palmer had re-formed to whip up a winter blizzard gone amok.


    While most of the Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas albums are largely instrumental, Davis has employed the considerable talents of University of Michigan's Glee Club to sing on O Tannenbaum, respectfully fading their elegant, full vocals around the pristine voice of Johnny Mathis, elevating this German carol to a cinematic peak. -Jaan Uhelszki

    Hamburg Recordings 1967

    The Monks - a strange, rare group with a story that sounds like a drunk friend's generous
    hyperbole. A group of American G.I.s stationed in Germany on the precipice of Western
    cultural revolution starts playing music loosely connected to the rock n' roll craze,
    contrastingly incorporating a critical and often offensive avant-garde edge. Nothing
    was off limits - screeching vocals, dark aesthetics, staccato-strummed banjo, sardonic
    lyricism, critiques of the Vietnam War and full monk costuming down to the tonsure.
    When viewed on the whole, it seems like an art school student's senior thesis on what
    the craze means and its future possibilities. Due in large part to original Polydor vinyl
    collectability and years in the word-of-mouth hype machine, their legend and cult status
    has steadily blossomed since their last shows in 1967.


    Fast forward to 2017, the crew at Third Man, already huge fans, are presented with an
    honest-to-God treasure trove of original Monks photos, newspaper clippings, business
    cards, letterhead, contracts, postcards and, yes, analog tapes, containing trailblazing,
    wild compositions completely unheard by public ears.


    "I'm Watching You" would have been recorded on February 28th, 1967 at the same
    sessions that would produce the Monks' final single "Love Can Tame the Wild" b/w "He
    Went Down to the Sea." The remaining four songs were recorded after hours in the Top
    Ten Club later that year, just prior to the break-up of the band.


    These songs have been unreleased for 50 years and are quite possibly the last music left
    to be heard by this legendary band.

    How To Die In The North

    Lost treasure needn't be found in the distant past; the 21st century hides many artists who disappeared into the great wide yonder. BC Camplight is one such example. The alter-ego of American songwriter Brian Christinzio released albums in 2005 and 2007, both gems of a certain psych-pop vintage, combining eloquent songwriting with a self-destructive bent. Christinzio certainly knew it - he's described himself as, "the guy who blew it."


    But this sublime talent with the keening vocal and fearless approach to lyrical introspection has another chance. His new album 'How To Die In The North', recorded in his newly adopted home of Manchester, England, is a fantastically rich, stylistically diverse trip. From dramatic, layered pop to a haunted take on Sixties sunshine-pop, from blue-eyed soul to speedy surf-pop, from sparser piano balladry to psychedelic showstoppers and a grand finale that's part Nilsson and part Broadway showtune.


    Originally from New Jersey, Christinzio started playing piano aged just four, inspired by his mum's Jerry Lee Lewis and Nilsson records and his Dad's classical collection. Depression and crippling hypochondria clashed with captaining the football team and a penchant for boxing. Post-school, he fell in with people, "willing to go through shit to be a musician," which saw him relocate to Philadelphia where he occasionally played live with Philly faves The War On Drugs and guested on Sharon Van Etten's album 'Epic'.


    He's already done two sessions for long-term fan Marc Riley at BBC 6 Music, which featured Christinzio's band of Mancunians who he met at The Castle Hotel pub, a watering hole in the city centre particularly popular with musicians. Christinzio also heard John Grant's album on the jukebox there, which encouraged him to approach Bella Union. Grant's cocktail of depression and self-sabotage thwarted an outrageous talent, but he took his second chance. The same deserves to happen to Christinzio, a similarly outsize, sharp and funny personality with a non-conformist streak. Far from dying, BC Camplight has been reborn in the North!

    Call By Night

    Wymond Miles was raised in the working-class small towns of the American
    West. On Call by Night, the singer's latest widescreen opus, Miles masterfully
    evokes that lost landscape, all while grappling with issues of fatherhood, privacy,
    PTSD, violence, and dissipated romance. The album adds a critical new chapter
    to the Fresh & Onlys guitarist's story as an artist, and reasserts him as a major
    voice in contemporary songwriting.


    Call by Night sees Miles building a noticeably bigger sound than on his previous
    solo records, while simultaneously standing as his most intimate work. It's a
    record explicitly written for the fidelity of the vinyl format, with louder songs
    beginning each album side and quieter songs at the interior. His attention to
    sequencing paid off; the album flows like a piece of classic cinema, and sounds
    like it's splashed across a drive-in screen in 70mm. Recorded using vintage gear
    by Phil Manley (The Fucking Champs, Trans Am) at El Studio in San Francisco
    and Miles' Garden Chamber home studio, the record is a treasure of tube-amp
    warmth, and a landmark in the songwriter's catalog.


    Miles wrote most of Call by Night on piano, and while the wall-of-sound guitar
    and cinematic synth playing that helped define his earlier efforts is still present,
    the beating heart of the songs is left more open thanks to his new method. Where
    previous full-lengths were cloaked in distinct aesthetic choices, this record exists
    outside of any stylistic restraints. "Divided in Two," the lead single, considers
    dignity, class, honor, and father-son relationships through the devastating lens of
    PTSD, all set to a sardonic flag-waving waltz, with martial percussive bomb blasts.
    The title track explores the enduring aesthetic of British psych-folk. Other songs
    dip into the traditions of gospel music, sea shanties, and even big-box power
    ballads, using antique instruments and Miles' unique perspective on the modern
    world to forge a new collection of entries for the American songbook.


    Miles has said the songs on Call by Night mark his "more definitive commitment
    to seek, listen, and give voice to an enduring muse." If that's true, then the muse
    has obviously been singing to him loud and clear.

    Sabougla Voices

    In today's frenetically paced world, uncovering a lost treasure is often met with great enthusiasm, excitement, and anticipation. Lost footage of Gene Kelly dancing. A Vincent van Gogh no one knew existed. An Arthur Crudup album lost in a vault for 40 years. Jimi Hendrix material coming to light after 40 years. Well, now we can also celebrate the "discovery" of a blues master stepping into the sunlight, and delivering the best gospel album since Elvis gave us "How Great Thou Art" in February, 1967. The paradox is that Leo Welch has been there all along, living in Sabougla, Mississippi, first playing blues, and then moving to gospel. Born in 1932, Welch grew up playing blues. As his style of blues became less popular, he began to play gospel because churches offered more opportunities to play. Consequently, he was overlooked because blues aficionados frequented juke joints. Most blues lovers would never think to find blues, or blues related music in a church.


    After an off-the-cuff call by Welch to Big Legal Mess Records, things continued to fall into place, and he was able to record his debut album, Sabougla Voices. It is really difficult to accurately describe this stunning album, and faithfully convey the vibe, the atmosphere, and way it moves a listener. Welch has poured a lifetime of learning, living, loving, playing, and praying into this work, and it shows!


    This album is stripped down, bare bones joyful gospel being played and sung from the heart. This is not your daddy's gospel though. Sabougla Voices is a shot of love to your heart, a cool cleansing breeze blowing through your soul, and an orgasm for your ears. The album opens with "Praise His Name," which is beautifully sparse, raw, and has a great bouncing beat. "You Can't Hurry God" is almost a gospel honky-tonk that has a juke joint vibe. "Take Care Of Me Lord" has a very early Magic Slim and The Teardrops sound to it. "Mother Loves Her Children" is really basic, slow, artfully delicate blues. "Somebody Touched Me" has a mid 1960s Rolling Stones blues flavor, and nice backing vocals. "A Long Journey" is delightfully slow, and begs to be pulled over you like a comforting blanket of blues. "His Holy Name" is gospel as a shuffle, and definitely has the church rocking! The album closes with "The Lord Will Make A Way," an acoustic performance that is slow and stark, but very moving.


    If this is Welch's debut alum, we can't wait for the follow-up! This album is definitely a must-have.

    Go Bo Diddley


    The Bo Diddley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Begins!


    Bo Diddley's Masterwork Album!


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records Mono Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Bo Diddley (Elias McDaniel) was truly an American original. There will never be another Bo Diddley nor anyone in the music
    industry who could influence generations upon generations of aspiring rock 'n rollers like Bo Diddley has and continues to this
    day, even years after his short time on earth.


    Celebrating six decades in the music business, this Mississippian native initially captivated millions of kids in the fifties
    with his first recordings like Bo Diddley and Say Man. He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar riffs and boogie beat,
    filled with poetic lyrics and a thrilling presence on the stage.


    Bringing his original "Bo Diddley Beat" to Chess Records in early 1955, the Chicago based label and the pioneer rocker hit
    a goldmine immediately with his arsenal of tunes that he presented to Phil and Leonard Chess. A lot of these great songs became
    top charting singles which culminated in his masterwork album Go! Bo Diddley.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits Cracking Up, Bo roars through a treasure trove of 11 more champions
    which made this one of the most important and emulated albums of all time. The album features classic gems like his classics
    Dearest Darling, Say Man, Don't Let It Go and The Clock Struck Twelve. Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing his Bo Diddley Beat riff to a whole new generation of guitar players, Go! Bo Diddley was truly a primer for a ton of rock and
    blues artists for years like Eric Burdon and The Animals, George Thorogood, Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and
    The Yardbirds.


    Bo Diddley opened the doors for millions of music fans around the world to enjoy rock and blues, making him along with
    Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and Little Richard as one of the first pioneers of the popular recording business that we all enjoy to
    this day.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. That is why we are so
    very proud to announce our first installment in The Bo Diddley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary
    masterpiece Go! Bo Diddley.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry) for the first time on audiophile vinyl
    from the Chess monophonic tapes, Bo Diddley's Go! Bo Diddley will truly become one of the most important and historical 180
    Gram Audiophile Vinyl titles in quite some time.


    To further celebrate this first time audiophile vinyl LP, we enhance this limited edition masterwork with a stunning gatefold
    cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as two classic rare inside gatefold photos of the man who helped start
    rock and roll.

    The Chris Robinson Brotherhood have announced the release of their fourth studio album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, via Robinson's own Silver Arrow Records. The band relocated to northern California for the sessions, recording on the side of a mountain overlooking the foggy Pacific Ocean and channeling the natural majesty of their surroundings into the album's eight sprawling tracks. Having spent the prior two years touring relentlessly, the CRB were road-tested and in peak form to capture their kinetic chemistry and immersive sound, which Uncut Magazine called, " a celebration of how American musical traditions can be at once honored and psychedelically expanded."


    "It was an opportunity to see where our expression could take us. For us, when it comes to making records, the looser it gets the better," says Robinson. "It's all about taking our intuition and following it to where our ideas can really manifest themselves. This turned out to be the most spontaneous record I've ever been a part of."


    Indeed, when the Chris Robinson Brotherhood entered the studio to begin recording the album, no one knew just what to expect. These would be the band's first recordings with new drummer Tony Leone (Ollabelle, Levon Helm) and their first time producing themselves. Robinson purposely left as much open-ended as possible. Rather than coming into the studio with a collection of finished songs as he had in the past, he would present the group with sketches-a verse and melody here, a chorus and chord progression there-and let the band follow its collective muse to bring the music to life. They'd lean into the improvisational nature that makes their live shows such enthralling spectacles and thrive on the unexpected.


    "All it takes is one good, small idea, and then if everyone's focused and in the moment, a few hours later, you can have something that you realize you'll be playing for as long as you're making music," Robinson continues. "I think when everyone's aware that that's the sort of magic that we're looking for. More than any other session that I've ever been a part of, that's how all of these songs were done."


    The album kicks off with "Narcissus Soaking Wet," a psychedelic toe-tapper that marks Robinson's first co-write with keyboardist Adam MacDougall. It touches on everything from Dylan and Parliament Funkadelic to psych rock and Chicago rhythm and blues. "Ain't It Hard But Fair" calls to mind the soulful Americana of The Band, while "Oak Apple Day" is a mediation on life in the CRB, and "Forever As The Moon" came together in a stream of consciousness between The CRB's lead guitarist Neal Casal and Robinson. "Leave My Guitar Alone" was a song Robinson had been sitting on for nearly 15 years, but only once he presented it to the rest of the band did it roar to life in a way that had eluded him for more than a decade. Some of Robinson's finest writing to date arrives in the album's final minutes, with the country-soul, gospel-tinged closer "California Hymn," which finds him singing "Glory glory hallelujah / It's time to spread the news / Though my good words may sound profane to some."


    The Chris Robinson Brotherhood emerged in 2011 by playing close to 50 shows over nine weeks in California before ever leaving the Golden State or officially releasing music. Their introduction on the national stage came in 2012 when they'd release not one, but two acclaimed full-length albums within a few months of each other. Critics hailed their sprawling debut, Big Moon Ritual, as a revelation, with The Independent raving that Robinson had "finally found the ideal vehicle to indulge his taste for 'Cosmic California Music.'" The reviews were similarly ecstatic for its immediate follow-up, The Magic Door, which was praised by Relix as "classic rock in the finest sense." The band's epic tour schedule brought their shimmering acid-Americana around the world for a staggering 118-date tour, firmly establishing the CRB as the new standard-bearers of the psychedelic roots torch. In 2014, they returned to the studio for Phosphorescent Harvest, a masterful collection that showcased the blossoming songwriting partnership between Robinson and Neal Casal. Rolling Stone raved that the album was "electrifying boast[ing] a vintage rock vibe that's at once quirky, trippy, soulful and downright magnetic," and Guitar World called it "a treasure trove of soul that advances the band's bluesy, kaleidoscopic sound."

    Broken People

    American music is a mile-wide river that beckons black and white, urban and rural, dreamer and doer alike to launch their vessels. All the streams of style and genre flow into it; its tributaries are blues and jazz, mountain and folk, rock, soul and R&B.


    The release of the debut album by Muddy Magnolias, Broken People, marks the launch of a great new vessel onto that waterway. The album showcases a confluence of style and sound as colorful as it is unlikely, steeped in that river of influence, yet bracingly fresh.


    With Broken People, Jessy Wilson and Kallie North take us on an 11-song journey with its origins in two widely divergent backgrounds that came together in a friendship and creative partnership with world-changing resonance.


    North was raised in southeast Texas and began singing with her family and studying piano at an early age. She grew to love rich vocal harmonies singing in church choirs and listening to artists like the Carpenters, Alison Krauss, James Taylor and the Eagles. By her early teens, she was singing lead parts in church and in musical theater productions at her high school. Her palette grew when a friend turned her on to the Grateful Dead, and after high school she spent every spare moment in the clubs of Austin, absorbing everything from alt-country and jam bands to New Orleans funk. She met her husband at a concert and moved with him to his native Mississippi. There, on their isolated farm, she had her awakening, starting a career as a photographer, capturing the spirited, deep history of the Mississippi Delta.


    "To me, the Delta is the most overlooked and mysterious place," she says. "It was the birthplace of America's music, and all the legends were influenced by everything that came out of it. I went on this personal exploration to learn about the Delta blues and the region's history. I picked up a camera and started taking pictures, blogging about what I was experiencing, and I tapped into all the creative energy lying dormant inside me." When her husband gave her a guitar, she began spending her days on the porch of their farm learning how to connect her first chords. From there, the songs began pouring out and she knew she had to find a way to get to Nashville and write songs professionally.


    Wilson, raised in Brooklyn, was in love with music from her earliest days. She was singing before she could talk, and was 5 when her mother recognized her passion for music. "I would cry because I couldn't hit the high notes in Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey songs," she says. Influenced by greats from Aretha and Smokey Robinson to Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and The Notorious B.I.G., she began auditioning in the highly competitive New York entertainment scene and was working professionally in musical theater by the age of 10. Her mother took her to nightclubs where she experienced a variety of live performances. She attended New York's top performing arts schools, including La Guardia High School, the "Fame" school, where she discovered her love for gospel music and took part in the gospel chorus for four years. She worked at Cafe Wha? in Greenwich Village, making $500 a weekend while still in high school.


    She sang backup for Alicia Keys in her teens, then worked four years with John Legend, and through him with legends like will.i.am, Kanye West, Raphael Saadiq and Babyface. Legend mentored her in songwriting and recording before she began writing songs on her own for American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino and others. Inspired by her evolving love of songwriting, she too moved to Nashville, looking for a wider creative palette. There, while meeting with then-BMI executive Clay Bradley, her eye settled on a photograph of "a rundown juke joint piano" in his office.


    "I want to meet whoever took that photo," she said. The photographer was North-it had been taken during her creative awakening in Mississippi-and the subsequent meeting led quickly to collaboration and an epic friendship.


    "The first day we wrote together," says North, "there wasn't much thought that we were blending genres and worlds. That never came up. It was just natural. She had never written a country song and I was writing them every day. We sat down to write one but when we listened back it was a country R&B song. And we decided to become songwriting partners." Before long, they had their first cut as collaborators, and they were off and running.


    "The spirit of the Muddy Magnolias existed from the moment we met," says Wilson, "but we didn't know we were the Muddy Magnolias yet." North was toying with the idea of a solo career; Wilson had aspirations of making history as an African-American female songwriter in Nashville. Their new friendship was a game-changer.


    "We spent a whole year writing, trying to understand what our message was when we combined our stories," says Wilson. Then one day over afternoon wine at Burger Up, their favorite hangout in the 12 South section of Nashville, both admitted to be being at a crossroads. "The next thing you know," says North, "Jessy said, 'What if we made a record together?' It was like all of our dreams in one."


    "We went back to that same office on Music Row where I saw the photograph," says Wilson, "and sat down side by side in Clay's office and said, 'We've got something to tell you. We're going to make an album together.'" Bradley believed enough to sign on as their manager. They held three days of band auditions and found four best friends who had been playing together since college, primarily doing jazz. The fit was perfect, providing just the right sonic backdrop for their soulful approach and high-energy delivery.


    As they continued to write and perform, opening for the likes of The Zac Brown Band and Gary Clark, Jr., they put together a project that crosses genres effortlessly, showcasing two voices that soar together in a blending of cultures as electrifying as if Janis Joplin and Tina Turner, or Whitney Houston and Lee Ann Womack had joined forces.


    Broken People combines poetic imagery and vocal passion, with the musicianship and production of Motown or Muscle Shoals by way of the raw honesty of Sun Records. Of course it deals with love, longed for and unleashed, in songs like "I Need A Man," "Why Don't You Stay" and "Devil's Teeth," but the album soars as it reaches for bigger themes, dealing with the need for hope in "Take Me Home," for love on a societal scale in "Shine On" and "Brother What Happened," and hope for the future in "Got It Goin' On." With "Leave It To The Sky," the two, joined by John Legend on vocals and piano, make a powerful case for spiritual solutions, and few songs in the modern lexicon are as steeped in present-day reality as the gospel- and R&B-tinged title track.


    "Ultimately," says North, "this album is a result of an unlikely friendship and is a testament to what can happen when you diversify your relationships."


    "It's about getting out of your comfort zone and being rewarded with a great friendship," adds Wilson. "We've both felt the power of that."


    "Our path is so much better and our lives are so much richer because of it," says North, "and we want to bring people along on this journey."


    "We want to see what society would be like if we all reached out in ways we normally wouldn't," adds Wilson.


    And that is the magic and the message. The music of Muddy Magnolias, live and on record, comes from a place where the Mississippi meets the A-Train by way of Nashville. Whether yours is the back porch or the front stoop, Spanish moss or window box garden, dusty country lane or crowded subway car, rural honky-tonk or uptown club, this is music that beckons. Muddy Magnolias are collaboration without boundaries, musical healing in a landscape of the heart, and all of us who treasure creative energy, honest art and the possibilities of love and unity, are better for their arrival.

    Ray Charles (Awaiting Repress)


    First Time On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl!


    Ray Charles' Stunning Atlantic Records Debut!


    The One That Started The Genius Of Soul Phenomenon!


    Mastered For The First Time From The Original Monophonic Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Ray Charles was the premiere architect singer/songwriter/musician whose "genius" of combining jazz, blues
    with gospel most certainly began the American soul music movement. This modern form of R&B which would become
    an American way of life forever etched itself in total with the release of his classic #1 hit single I Got a Woman from
    his stunning debut 1957 album Ray Charles.


    Fused with heavy blues, gospel and rock and roll, I Got a Woman was one of Ray's very first top charting hits
    soon to be followed by other #1 smash hit singles like Mess Around and A Fool for You. More hit singles graced his first
    album as well with Hallelujah I Love Her So, Ain't That Love and This Little Girl of Mine. The Ray Charles album itself
    on its own merit is truly a Greatest Hits LP, whereby most of these early Ray Charles' hit tracks have been covered
    hundreds of times by some of the most important voices in popular music, like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Steve
    Miller Band, Van Morrison, Peggy Lee, Johnny Winter, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder and many others.


    Also included on this debut masterpiece are some of Ray Charles' more definitive blues rockers like the powerful
    Come Back Baby, the rockin' Greenbacks, the #1 blues rocker Mary Ann, and the brilliant soul sounds of Don't You
    Know, Drown in My Own Tears and Losing Hand.


    The Ray Charles album forever etched the name superstar and genius with Ray Charles as the LP reached the
    upper rungs of the popular, jazz and R&B charts and has become an American institution which will forever stand the
    test of time. Being one of his rarest LP's of his career, the magnificent album has not been officially released on vinyl
    in over five decades and fetches hundreds of dollars for a mint used copy if you can even find one.


    Friday Music is very honored to announce the first time ever 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl LP of the Ray Charles'
    classic Ray Charles. As another installment in our treasured Ray Charles/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series, his
    amazing debut LP is mastered from the original monophonic Atlantic Records' tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music

    stunning liner notes by Guy Remark.


    The album will be packaged in a poly bag to preserve the rich details of the legendary cover art as well as a poly

    Hold Time

    Hold Time is an eloquent and startlingly beautiful album. While past critics have compared him to everyone from John Fahey to Tom Waits to his old friend Howe Gelb, with Hold Time it's clear that M. Ward, with his brilliant guitar playing and innate sense of melody, is one of those rare and special talents who defy comparisons and compartmentalization. Over the past few years, Ward has found an ever-increasing and dedicated audience; his last three albums, Transfiguration of Vincent, Transistor Radio and Post-War, have struck a singular chord among music fans. His deft guitar picking, bar room piano, and voice like drizzled honey make him a huge favorite of music critics and the focus of public praise from such disparate talents as Norah Jones and Oasis' Noel Gallagher, the former taking him on a global tour as her sole support act. In 2008, he was also part of the duo known as She & Him, a project he began with Zooey Deschanel. The duo's debut album, Volume One, was produced by M. Ward and has enjoyed international success. Like a true American treasure, M. Ward cuts his own groove while music fans continue to fall under his whispered spell.

    The Holy Ground (Pure Pleasure)

    Irish singer Mary Black is well known for deftly combining her Celtic roots with contemporary folk. On this release, she offers another strong set of songs, as she interprets songs from American folk favorite John Gorka (Treasure Island) and connects with Anglo-folk tradition on the lovely One Way Donkey Ride (written by Sandy Denny of Fairport Convention fame). The acoustic instrumentation feature a rich blend of guitars, fiddles, saxophones, and accordions that add a timeless feel to most of her songs. The highlight of the album is Loving Time, an emotional story of star-crossed lovers told with a bittersweet aching that few artists could deliver so poignantly. While a few songs towards the end of the album suffer from middle-of-the-road, adult easy listening arrangements, Mary Black's voice remains an incredibly expressive instrument that makes this another solid effort.



    Musicians:



    • Mary Black (vocal)

    • Dave Early (drums, conga, percussion)

    • Garvan Gallagher (bass)

    • Frank (vocals, violin, whistle)

    • Declan Sinnott (guitar, mandolin)

    • Pat Crowley (keyboards, accordian)

    • Carl Geraghty (tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone)

    • Mel Mercier (percussion)

    • Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (additional vocals)



    Production: Declan Sinnott




    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Beyond The Bloodhounds

    Adia Victoria spent the last few years writing, recording, touring and performing, while entrenched in the infamous artist R&R world - restaurants and retail work. Day jobs at a laundry list of Nashville it and not so it spots gave the musician lots of people watching time as well as the mental and emotional space to marinate in her art.


    Adia blows the social hush-hush lid off the mental and emotional state of a young black woman growing up under the poverty line in the Deep South and all the implications of such. No pretense. No jive. But also, like the writing of Eudora Welty and Tennessee Williams, there is plenty of Southern Gothic styled, marrow deep joy.


    In a recent feature story, Fader encouraged us to, Meet Adia Victoria, A Poet Making Country Music a Little Creepier. She is found in album cuts like Sea of Sand and Stuck in the South, revealing some of her place-based aha moments. In the latter, she notes, I don't know nothin' about Southern belles/ But I can tell you something about Southern hell. As songs like Head Rot, and first single Dead Eyes show us, Adia says, it's an album of falling in love, dealing with loss, confusion, anger, love, and loving myself.


    Produced by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney) and the artist herself, recorded at Nashville, Tennessee's Haptown Studios, Beyond the Bloodhounds features the indelible lyrics, voice, and guitar solos of Adia Victoria along with a band of talented musicians including Tiffany Minton (Drums), Alex Caress (keys), Mason Hickman (guitar), and Jason Harris (bass). She recalls, the studio is a Music City treasure. It used to be a car repair shop. You walk in and there are no windows. It's dark and moody. It feels like walking into the mind.


    The result of a lifetime of introspection and a younger self marked by silent observation, Adia Victoria's Beyond the Bloodhounds was three active, recording years in the making. The title pays homage to a line in Harriet Jacobs' Narrative in the Life of a Slave Girl.


    Ultimately, Victoria's debut album is more both/and, than either/or. The complexity of her Southern, barrel-aged roots and world traveling, bookworm woman ways will lure you out of the status quo.

    Now on the brink of her 30s, fluent in the language of her own self, Adia Victoria stands poised to take her place in a line of true artists. Her mother warned that she feels too much and would be torn up by the world. Adia will tell you that proved to be true. I've felt shredded, but I'm now blessed to embrace the intense feelings as part of my job. That's what I do. It's my bread and butter. My art depends on me feeling and experiencing. I show up, live, and come back and say, oooooh Honey, it was like this...

    In Paris: The ORTF Recordings

    Limited Edition 180 Gram Vinyl Pressing Of 2,000


    Gatefold LP Includes Booklet With Essays, Unpublished Photos, Collector Postcards


    Mastered By The Legendary Engineer Bernie Grundman


    Resonance Records, in partnership with the National Audiovisual Institute (INA) of France, is pleased to announce the release of Larry Young In Paris/The ORTF Recordings. Presenting groundbreaking performances by jazz organist and pianist, Larry Young, these studio and live recordings from 1964 and 1965 made for French Radio and never before issued on record will be released in a limited edition 2-LP set.


    Producer Zev Feldman notes, It's particularly exciting because none of this music has ever been heard before except on its initial broadcast in France five decades ago. I think that's something to celebrate and a call for us all - as we often do with the archival recordings we at Resonance Records uncover - to revisit and discuss this legendary artist's legacy.


    Musicians featured on these recordings include trumpet legend Woody Shaw, tenor saxophonist and bandleader Nathan Davis and drummer Billy Brooks. An international cast of supporting players: French pianist Jack DiÉval tenor saxophonist Jean-Claude Fohrenbach and bassist Jacques B. Hess; Italian drummer Franco Manzecchi, Jamaican trumpet player Sonny Grey and Guadaloupean percussionist Jacky Bamboo round out the personnel. This album marks the first new release of Larry Young music in thirty-eight years.


    This project came about in 2012 when Resonance Records producer Zev Feldman traveled to France to explore the ORTF (Office of French Radio and Television) archives (the media vaults overseen by the French National Audiovisual Institute (INA) in the hope of finding undiscovered treasures, which he suspected he might find there. Feldman asked INA executives about specific artists and was stunned to learn that the vaults contained recordings documenting some of the greatest American jazz musicians who lived in - or visited - Paris in the 1960's, including Larry Young. Resonance Records presents in this album tapes that had been sitting idly in the vaults for nearly 50 years, scrupulously maintained by INA. Resonance will also be releasing other future projects from the INA vaults. More details to come soon. Producer Feldman states, It's been a thrill of the lifetime working with Christiane Lemire, Laure Audinot and Pascal Rozat at INA France to find this great music and shepherd this release. No question about it, this project represents jazz through diplomacy and the greater good of a mission. These recordings showcase American artists who found their home and voice in Europe at a time when the American landscape wasn't always as supportive. Feldman continues, When we started to explore the vaults of ORTF and search for recordings to release, we had a wish list of various artists we were on the hunt for, but Larry was the one artist whom I personally felt we needed to look extra hard for. I couldn't be more thrilled with what we found and which we are now releasing. I hope we'll all revisit this genius's legacy and appreciate why he mattered so much.


    While in France, Larry Young recorded at the ORTF Studios in Paris (now Maison de Radio France) as a sideman with the Nathan Davis Quartet, the Jazz aux Champs-ÉlysÉes All-Stars and with his own piano trio which included bassist Jacques B. Hess drummer and Franco Manzecchi. Larry Young In Paris/The ORTF Recordings includes selections from the original tapes, which were recorded specifically to be broadcast on French Radio. As noted, the only time these recordings have been shared with the public were on their original broadcasts on two iconic monthly French radio programs: Musique aux Champs-ÉlysÉes, hosted by French musician and producer Jack DiÉval; and Jazz sur scène, hosted by producer and jazz scholar AndrÉ Francis. Shortly after these recordings were made, Larry Young returned to New York to record the classic album Unity, his second album for Blue Note.


    Larry Young died at the tragically young age of 38 in 1978. Larry Young In Paris: The ORTF Recordings is a tribute to his memory and endorsed by the estate of Larry Young. Produced by Zev Feldman with Executive Producers George Klabin and Michael Cuscuna. Sound Restoration by Fran Gala and George Klabin. Mastering by Fran Gala at Resonance Records Studios.

    Ella And Louis Again (Out Of Stock)

    Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound

     

    There isn't much one can say about an album whose title is Ella And Louis Again. The "again" obviously means they've already done one album together and beyond that, what can you say about two people like Ella and Louis? I doubt that there's anyone today who loves music, who doesn't know Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. The backing, with the Oscar Peterson Trio and Louis Bellson substituting for Buddy Rich, remains, as in the first album, quiet, discreet, swinging.


    "Once again (so to speak) Pops and the First Lady of Song seem to be singing in the room, right before your eyes. (When I recently played Ella & Louis for a friend who's a prominent jazz critic, he literally gasped and afterward likened the experience to "an acid trip.") ... their shivering cruise through 'Autumn in New York,' on Ella & Louis Again, is one of those essential artifacts of American civilization." - Fred Kaplan, www.stereophile.com, Aug. 10, 2012


    "...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I'd definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!" Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011

    Jazz Samba (Out Of Stock)

    Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound


    The words bossa nova are often synonymous with the name Stan Getz. But North Americans might not have ever known the bright sound of bossa nova had it not been for Charlie Byrd. In 1961 Byrd returned from a tour of South America, where bossa nova music was thriving. The style was the invention of singer Joao Gilberto and songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim - an adaptation of infectious Brazilian samba rhythms with the harmonic structures and cool surface of West Coast jazz. Byrd brought back records for Getz to hear, they planned a session, and the result was Jazz Samba - the first album of true bossa nova music by jazz artists and the one that broke the bossa nova wave in 1960s America.
