    At The Five Spot, Vol. 1

    Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissues from Analogue Productions - 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All cut at 33 1/3.


    All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom


    Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock


    One night during a one-time, two-week engagement at the Five Spot produced enough music of lasting merit for three albums. When Rudy Van Gelder took his portable equipment down to the fabled Cooper Square jazz club on July 16, 1961, he captured the interaction of an extraordinary quintet.


    Eric Dolphy, Booker Little, Mal Waldron, Richard Davis and Ed Blackwell had formed a cooperative group and, if LIttle had not died in October 1961, there is no doubt that it would have been a potent force in the music of the 1960s and beyond. Dolphy himself died in June 1964, after establishing himself as one of the important contemporary reedmen. Here his alto saxophone and bass clarinet and Little's trumpet explore three originals: The Prophet by Dolphy, Bee Vamp by Little, and Fire Waltz by Waldron. It's time caught in a bottle - music for the ages.

    Eric Dolphy At The Five Spot Vol. 1

    A 150 gram vinyl re-issue of the classic jazz album, this is the first of three sets that document the Eric Dolphy/Booker Little quintet's playing at the Five
    Spot. It features a group made up of pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Richard Davis and drummer Ed Blackwell really stretching out during long versions of
    Little's Aggression and the standard Like Someone in Love. Dolphy's playing -- whether on alto, bass clarinet or flute -- always defied categorization,
    while Little (who passed away less than three months later) was the first new voice on the trumpet to emerge after Clifford Brown's death in 1956. An
    excellent set that records what may have been Dolphy's finest group ever, as well as one of that era's best working bands.

    At Carnegie Hall (Speakers Corner) (Awaiting Repress)

    Many critics regard Dave Brubeck's Carnegie Hall concert from February 1963 as his greatest ever live appearance. But who can really determine that? For no one - apart from Brubeck himself - would have seen and heard his conservatively estimated 12,000 concerts.



    Although the twelve titles had already been released on LPs that had been recorded in the studio, these records were certainly not known to all those in the audience. In between the numbers on each LP, Brubeck made little 'advertising spots' in short comments, but with such charm and wit that one really cannot be angry with him.



    The concert programme begins with St. Louis Blues and ends with Take Five. Luckily, the solos are distributed among all the musicians, so that Paul Desmond and Joe Morello - whose prowess on this evening can only be called 'amazingly good' - justifiably received enthusiastic applause from both the audience and us alike. Castilian Drums demonstrates Morello's wealth of ideas and his grandiose feeling for rhythm; though short, Paul Desmond's solos (Southern Scene is a good example!) are compelling, highly melodic, lyrical and possess a unique tone - as such they are immediately recognisable.



    How fortunate that the twelve brilliantly improvised numbers are now available once again on vinyl, having been recorded live at the legendary Carnegie Hall 60 years ago.



    Musicians:



    • Dave Brubeck (piano)

    • Paul Desmond (alto saxophone)

    • Eugene Wright (bass)

    • Joe Morello (drums)


    Recording: February 1963 Carnegie Hall, New York

    Production: Teo Macero



    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.

    Paris 1969

    Blue Note Records has announced Thelonious Monk Paris 1969, a fascinating and important late-career document of the legendary jazz pianist and composer in performance with his Quartet at the Salle Pleyel concert hall in Paris, France on December 15, 1969. Beautifully captured on B&W film, the concert also featured a surprise guest appearance from renowned drummer Philly Joe Jones. Also included is a rare on-camera interview with Monk that was conducted by the French bassist Jacques Hess after the concert.


    "The 1969 Paris concert captures the power and the undiminished beauty of Monk's music, reminding us that even as his body aged his musical imagination knew no limits," writes Monk scholar Robin Kelley in his liner notes essay. However, Kelley also illuminates what a peculiar and challenging moment 1969 was for the 52-year-old pianist. Monk hadn't achieved true success until the late-50s with his legendary run at the Five Spot CafÉ in New York City with John Coltrane (a band that was brilliantly captured on the lost recording Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall from 1957 which was discovered and released on Blue Note in 2005). By the early-60s Monk's success had peaked when he signed with Columbia Records and was eventually featured on the cover of TIME Magazine in 1964.


    However, by 1969, in addition to health issues, Monk's success was beginning to wane with the emergence of rock and the resulting jazz fusion movement. His recording contract with Columbia had just come to end after an ill-advised attempt at marketing him to a younger rock audience. That disappointment was followed by the departure of drummer Ben Riley and bassist Larry Gales from his band which left Monk with two chairs to fill on short notice before his European tour.


    Monk eventually found two young musicians - bassist Nate Hygelund and drummer Paris Wright - to fill out the Quartet with his longtime tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse. Luckily the inexperienced rhythm section had some time to gel before hitting the stage in Paris with a lengthy engagement in London followed by stops in Germany and Italy. By the time they reached the Pleyel the band was in fine form, which made for a triumphant return for Monk to the very stage he had made his Parisian debut on in 1954 in front of a hostile audience who felt that Monk was too avant-garde. 15 years later the situation could not have been more different with an enthusiastic audience and the concert being broadcast on television.


    In addition to rollicking Quartet versions of Monk classics such as "I Mean You," "Straight No Chaser," and "Blue Monk," the set also includes three stunning solo piano performances on "Don't Blame Me," "I Love You Sweetheart Of All My Dreams," and "Crepuscule With Nellie." However, an undeniable highlight of the concert was when the veteran drummer Philly Joe Jones who was an expat living in Paris at the time comes from backstage to borrow the sticks from the 17-year-old Wright, providing a palpable spark on Monk's "Nutty."

    Swim Team

    Music thrives on freedom. Without boundaries or blueprints, songs not only come to life, but last for a very long time to come.


    Dirty Heads' sixth full-length offering, SWIM TEAM [Five Seven Music], finds the group at its most free. The Orange County, CA quintet-Jared "Dirty J" Watson [co-lead vocals], Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell [co-lead vocals, guitar], Jon Olazabal [percussion], Matt Ochoa [drums], and David Foral [bass]-traffic between alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock with the same spirit and spark that's powered them since the beginning.


    As a result, the hooks naturally became bigger, the experimentation got bolder, and the smoke blazed brighter


    "We've put in so much hard work over the years that we have the freedom to do whatever we want now," affirms Jared. "Making the new record, I re-fell in love with everything about being in this band: writing music, playing shows, having fun, and where we're at. We spent every day not only working on songs, but laughing our asses off. What other people said didn't matter. The rules of being a proper songwriter and all of that bullshit didn't matter. If something felt good, we left it in there. It was so cool to get back to that feeling. Creating music was completely free. It was just fucking fun!"


    For the better part of 15 years, Dirty Heads have quietly worked towards this point. In 2008, they emerged with the fan favorite full-length debut, Any Point In A Storm. Signature single "Lay Me Down" achieved an RIAA gold certification and clinched #1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart for 11 weeks-a record run for that year. 2014 saw Sound of Change debut at #8 on the Billboard Top 200, garner acclaim from the likes of Esquire, and vault "My Sweet Summer" to the top of Alternative Radio. Most recently, 2016's self-titled Dirty Heads went Top 15 on the Top 200 and spawned the smash "That's All I Need," which racked up over 10.5 million Spotify streams and counting. Noisey summed up the album best as, "Killer." Simultaneously, they remain one of the world's most engaging and exhilarating live acts, selling out sheds coast to coast.


    During early 2017, the group started writing songs with no expectations or plans and soon found themselves working on what would become SWIM TEAM. That boundless environment immediately fostered inspiration.


    "We had some time off, and we were like, 'We might as well get in the studio and see what happens'," recalls Duddy. "In doing that, we were able to come up with some really good ideas. We didn't have any pressure to put out new music. It's a lot more ambient and simple. We went heavier on the hip-hop, which I love. After the first song, we agreed to just finish a record. We were all inspired."


    In order to capture those moments, Dirty Heads handpicked a team of collaborators-Jonas Jeberg [Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo], "Lay Me Down" partner-in-crime Rome [Enrique Iglesias] of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye West], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score-and recorded between Los Angeles and Orange County.


    "On the last album, it was like a mad speed dating rush with a bunch of producers to see who worked best," says Jared. "We had never done that before, and it was cool. It was a different vibe, studio, and guy every day. There are only a few producers on SWIM TEAM. The only new guys were HEAVY, and we hit it off immediately. We were molding and mutating what Dirty Heads are but with something new. We wanted to create songs we hadn't heard before."


    That brings us to the first single "Vacation." Produced by Jeberg, "Vacation" sways from bright sun-soaked piano and booming horns into an unshakable and hashtaggable chant, "Hey, I'm on vacation every single day cuz I love my occupation. Hey, I'm on vacation, if you don't like your life then you should go and change it."


    "We spent eight years in a van, worked hard, and now we're here," says Duddy. "It's almost like a vacation now."


    "I want 'Vacation' to speak to people out there who have paid their dues and love their jobs," adds Jared. "For those who don't enjoy what they do every day, it sends a message that, 'It's not too late to do something else.' If you're not happy, life is way too fucking short to hang around and do things you don't love. We're blessed to do something we're passionate about. We hope you feel the same!"


    Working with HEAVY, the emotional "Celebrate" volleys from vulnerable verses into confessional raps and a heart-wrenching refrain about being away from home. It's a classic pop ballad Dirty Heads-style with the power to resonate amongst listeners everywhere.


    "It strikes a chord for those of us who travel a lot and leave friends and families at home," explains Duddy. "We miss so much on the road. We're humans. We have wives. We have kids. We're happy to do what we love, but at the same time we miss our loved ones."


    Then there's "High Tea," which tows the line between 1940s-inspired crooning and grimy East Coast rhyme gymnastics like The Ink Spots guesting on Paul's Boutique.


    "That's my favorite song we've ever written," beams Jared. "The melody was super catchy, and there's an old school guitar part. We juxtapose those mellow, airy, and ethereal elements with hard-hitting hip-hop. We were drinking these weed kombuchas at the time," he laughs.


    In the end, SWIM TEAM represents Dirty Heads at their most dynamic, diverse, and definitive.


    "When you hear it, I just want you to walk away thinking, 'Damn, that sounds like Dirty Heads'," concludes Duddy.


    Jared leaves off, "I want you to feel the same way I did making it. Join this weird, odd, and wonderful secret society we've created over the past fifteen years. You're part of it now. Welcome to the team."

    Featuring The Classic Hit Singles Down Under And Who Can It Be Now?


    Original Black And White (Australian) Jacket


    Business As Usual is the debut album of Australian new wave band Men at Work, which was originally released in 1981 and became one of the most successful albums internationally by an Australian group. It spent an unprecedented 15 weeks at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 from late 1982 to early 1983; and five weeks at No. 1 in the United Kingdom Albums Chart in early 1983.


    Business As Usual was also one of the highest selling Australian albums in the early 80s, with 6 million copies sold in the US and 15 million sold worldwide.


    The first single Who Can It Be Now? was a strong top 3 hit single, but the second single Down Under became a monster hit and reached the number 1 spot in several charts around the globe.


    The high-quality re-issue by Music On Vinyl has the original black and white (Australian) jacket artwork.

    Egomaniac

    Following two successful years on the road supporting 2014's breakout Lunatic, KONGOS returned home in late 2015 with a bevy of ideas. The guys wrote initial demos separately and convened at Tokoloshe Studios-their full-scale production studio located in their hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. While sharing ideas, they collectively realized a thematic commonality, which would eventually inform the creation of Egomaniac.


    "We started to see this theme of egomania in everyone's songs," explains Dylan. "It came from recognizing egomania in every aspect of life and throughout our surroundings. If you have any inkling of self-awareness, you also notice it inside yourself. It's so palpable in our world. By referencing another human condition in so many songs, we thought it was a nice follow-up to our last album Lunatic. If you're going to name an album Egomaniac, you have to incorporate big sounds and songs. The chorus of 'Take It From Me' embodies the entire record's theme perfectly."


    Egomaniac boasts 13 new tracks from the group. These range from the blues guitar-driven accordion shuffle of "I Don't Mind," which instantly became a live favorite, to the skittering electronics and sharp commentary on "Autocorrect" and the epic send-off at the heart of "Look At Me."


    In 2014, "Come With Me Now" from Lunatic put KONGOS on the map. The group became unanimously recognized as one of rock music's most infectious and invigorating new voices as the track went RIAA double-platinum for sales in excess of 2 million. It occupied the #1 spot at Alternative Radio for five weeks, marking the quickest ascent to the top by a new band in history. The song was heard everywhere with placements by The Expendables 3, Universal Studios, Dodge Ram, Samsung Galaxy, American Idol, The Originals, MTV Movie Awards, HBO, FX, CNN, NBC Sports, ESPN, NFL, WWE, Playstation 4 and more. The video has been viewed over 45 million times. They've hit the stage at Late Night With Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Today Show and more and received acclaim from Rolling Stone, USA Today, and many others.


    The brothers KONGOS-Johnny, Jesse, Dylan, and Danny-have music in their blood. Their dad John Kongos landed multiple chart hits in the seventies, and the boys picked up instruments at a young age. Now, they've got a musical legacy all their own.

    19 (30th Anniversary Mixes)

    In April 1985 Paul Hardcastle's seminal track '19' entered the UK top 40 singles chart at #4. A week later it went to #1 where it remained for 5 consecutive weeks. Not even Duran Duran, on the back of the blockbuster movie 'A View To A Kill', could shift it! '19' was subsequently released worldwide, achieving overall sales in excess of 6,000,000 copies and hitting the #1 spot in 13 different countries as well as # 1 on the US dance charts and # 15 on the main Billboard Hot 100.

    Thelonious Himself

    Because Thelonious Monk's artistic vision was so personal and peculiar, hearing him in a solo setting is perhaps the best way to begin to understand him.


    This 1957 album was his first to consist of exclusively solo material. His lines are fractured, his ideas are deliberate, his mood is introspective, and the end result is an album of both stunning beauty and jarring surprise, often at once. The three originals included are all significant: Functional shows how Monk's irregularities translate into a blues format. 'Round Midnight, his most famous composition, is boiled down to its very core. The finale Monk's Mood is a fragile ballad that eventually adds color from tenor John Coltrane and bassist Wilbur Ware--the only spot on the record with accompaniment.


    That said, it's equally as fascinating to hear Monk reinvent the five timeless standards in his own image.

    IV

    Import

    Back with a renewed energy and purpose, Latino-flavored rappers Cypress Hill climbed back into the ring for another round in the fight for hip-hop supremacy on IV, an album which is as much at home with ghetto street-kids as it is with California surfers.


    With right hand man Sen Dog back in the fold, it completes the circle that B Real and DJ Muggs once drew as one of the most influential groups in Rap. With this fourth album, Cypress Hill managed to hit the #11 spot on the Billboard album charts and it was certified gold.

    Like Drawing Blood

    Like Drawing Blood is the second album by Gotye. All the sounds on the album were collected and assembled or performed by Wally De Backer in bedrooms around Melbourne between 2003 and 2005, and the record was mixed and mastered by Franc Tetaz (Wolf Creek soundtrack, Machine Translations, Architecture in Helsinki). It was featured heavily by Triple J in May 2006 and nominated for a J Award, which, although it didn't win, lent the album considerable publicity.


    Two songs from Like Drawing Blood rated in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2006: Hearts a Mess at #8, and Learnalilgivinanlovin at #94. Like Drawing Blood also received the number 1 spot on the 2006 Triple J Album Poll for best album of the year, as voted by Triple J listeners.
    The album was also released in Belgium, in 2008, with two alterations: it contains a new version of Learnalilgivinanlovin, and the song A Distinctive Sound is replaced by a new version of The Only Thing I Know (the original appeared on Gotye's debut album Boardface).


    Three singles were released in Belgium: Learnalilgivinanlovin, Hearts a Mess, and Coming Back.
    Like Drawing Blood has also received the number 11 spot on the 2011 Triple J Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time, as voted by the Triple J listeners.

    Storm Front

    As another definitive installment in the Billy Joel 180 Gram Audiophile Series, Friday Music announces the release of his 1989 tour de force release Storm Front. Recorded with Foreigner's Mick Jones as producer, Joel's new direction proved him correct as the album sailed to the #1 spot on the charts and maintained massive radio play with five huge hit singles for the better part of two years! Featuring the #1 smash We Didn't Start The Fire, the rocker I Got To Extremes and the tender ballad And So It Goes, Storm Front was a pivotal release for the Piano Man, and continues to be one of the most beloved albums in his legendary catalog.


    As is the case with Friday Music's other highly successful Billy Joel recordings, Storm Front was mastered impeccably from the original Epic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray at AcousTech, and pressed at RTI with Sony Music. This limited edition release also includes a very rare gatefold cover featuring all of the original artwork, plus a poly bag for the cover and a poly lined sleeve.

    Harbingers Of Soul

    The LP is pressed on 180gm vinyl and has been lovingly designed and printed 1960s UK style with spot gloss and glued flaps in a limited edition of 500. Arguably the most enduring and influential of all the 1950s R & B groups - the "5" Royales The Harbingers Of Soul LP features the best and most effective tracks from their stays at King and Home Of The Blues. In a very crowded market, their success was remarkable.. The Harbingers Of Soul is a mouth-watering overview featuring the best of the King era and the most soulful sides from their stay at Home Of The Blues. Home Of The Blues closed its doors in 1962, and although the Royales went on to record for Todd, and had the odd 45 on Smash and White Cliffs, their best days were behind them. But when interest in R & B began to rise again at the end of the 80s, surviving members of the group made a few curtain calls as they were "rediscovered" by a new generation. But these were just the last whispers from a group who were deafeningly loud for so many years. The elite of their Golden Age recordings can all be found on this LP, when they were bridging the gaps between gospel, R & B and the emerging soul style.

    A Dying Machine (Purple Vinyl) (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: June 8, 2018*


    Pressed On Limited Edition Purple Vinyl


    After two decades at the forefront of all things guitar, a GRAMMY® Award win, 40 million-plus units sold between Alter Bridge, Creed, and his eponymous Tremonti, and countless other accolades, Mark Tremonti once again summited an uncharted creative peak in 2018. For the very first time, the guitarist and singer crafted an immersive concept and accompanying novel for Tremonti's fourth full-length album and first for Napalm Records, A Dying Machine. Since emerging in 2012, he and his bandmates-Eric Friedman [guitar, bass] and Garrett Whitlock [drums]-have built the foundation for such an ambitious statement. Their full-length debut All I Was bowed in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and Top 30 of the Top 200. The 2015 follow-up Cauterize hit the #1 spot on the Top Rock Albums chart on iTunes when it was released. 2015 saw the frontman take home "Best Guitarist" at the Loudwire Music Awards just a year removed from his 2014 "Riff Lord" win at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods. In between sold out headline gigs and festival appearances everywhere from Rock on the Range to Shiprocked!, 2016's Dust maintained that momentum. With A Dying Machine, Tremonti reaches new heights like never before.

    The Monkees In Mono


    Their First Five #1 LP Masterworks In Stunning Monophonic Sound


    Full Color Box LP Set & 5 Individual LP Covers With Original Art Restored


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Colgems Records Mono Tapes


    61 Smash Hits Including: Last Train To Clarksville, I'm A Believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Daydream Believer, Valleri & (i'm Not Your) Stepping Stone


    In September 1966, Micky Dolenz, Davy
    Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork debuted
    as The Monkees on NBC's new Fall season lineup of shows. Overnight success would happen in
    the form of a smash TV show, a #1 debut album
    The Monkees and a #1 hit single Last Train To
    Clarksville. The Monkees were now the face of
    young people everywhere and they were here to
    stay.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the amazing
    recording career of The Monkees. As a tribute
    to the band, the music and the memories, we are
    very honored to announce the colossal audiophile
    vinyl box set The Monkees In Mono. Mastered for
    the first time for audiophile vinyl from the original
    Colgems Records monophonic tapes by Joe
    Reagoso (The Monkees), this super limited edition
    deluxe box set features their first five
    mono albums: The Monkees, More
    Of The Monkees, Headquarters,
    Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones
    Ltd., and The Birds, The Bees & The
    Monkees, all in their restored individual stunning
    LP covers, housed in a beautiful full color sturdy
    box.


    All your favorite hits are included like Last
    Train To Clarksville, I'm A Believer, Daydream
    Believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Valleri, I Wanna
    Be Free, (I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone, Randy
    Scouse Git and 53 more, 61 tracks total.


    The Monkees & More of The Monkees were
    two of the most successful albums ever released in
    classic rock history. The mono mixes are terrific
    here as you will hear nuances and slightly different
    mixes than their stereo counterparts.


    Headquarters will always be one of those
    "must haves in mono" and now you have it .
    This album started the Summer Of Love in 1967
    and was the last album before Sgt Pepper by the
    Beatles to be on the top of the charts, later The
    Monkees replaced the Beatles again in the top
    spot with Pieces, Aquarius .


    Both Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.
    & The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees are two of
    the rarest mono albums from the band, as stereo
    was the format of choice by 1968 and mono
    albums were soon discontinued. We have now
    gone back to the Colgems mono tapes and have
    put these back in circulation on vinyl for the first
    time in 46 years!


    A great way to celebrate the holidays this year
    for your favorite Monkees fans, The Monkees In
    Mono is in strictly limited edition and will become
    one of the most important overviews of this band
    ever released.

    00 Void (Awaiting Repress)

    00 Void (also known as Double-O Void) is the second album recorded by Sunn O))) circa 2000. At that time, guitarists and core members Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson were joined by guest bassist collaborator Stuart Dahlquist (Burning Witch, Goatsnake). 00 Void also features some incredible contributions from both Petra Haden (violinist/vocalist) and Pete Stahl (vocals). Their melodic evocations are seamlessly woven within this thick sonic tapestry.


    The group approached the compositions of this album in a different way than their previous recordings, each member focused intently on one composition/song and brought it into the recording session. Then, each of the songs were translated to the other members and nuances were worked out on the spot in the studio. This Sunn O))) album was recorded to 24-track, on 2 tape, at Grandmaster studios in Hollywood, CA, a large step forward in production values from the band's debut recording, The Grimmrobe Demos.


    Fellow sub-sonic enthusiast Scott Reeder (Obsessed, Kyuss, Goatsnake) captured that particular incantaion of Sunn O))) on huge reels of tape. The record has now come back home to its proper resting place, via Southern Lord, featuring beautiful artwork from Stephen Kasner and package execution by Stephen O'Malley. 180g double vinyl deluxe version with Stoughton gatefold jacket and full color printed inner-sleeves.
