    Live At The Sands: Before Frank (Awaiting Repress)

    Swinging Hard and Heavy With Orchestral Support, Live Big-Band Album Recorded During the Count's Warm-Up Sets for Sinatra in Early 1966 in Vegas


    Incredible Sound: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Reissue Improves Upon Renowned Dynamics, Presence, Crispness, and Balances


    Long Out-of-Print, Seminal Classic is Perfect Complement to Sinatra's Live at the Sands


    Count Basie and Frank Sinatra had the perfect arrangement at the Sands. Before the Chairman hit the stage in Vegas, Count Basie and his big band warmed up the already enthusiastic crowd with a brief set of their own. A dynamite entertainer, the legendary leader causes hearts to race, hips to shake, and fingers to snap with high-energy readings of his trademark swing music, taken to feverish heights by both his first-rate orchestra and the incredibly swank setting. Fortunately, the finest of Basie and Co.'s introductory performances from the historic 1966 dates have been preserved here and serve as a seminal complement to Sinatra's iconic Live at the Sands.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's analog version of Live at the Sands (Before Frank) gives you a dead-center, eighth-row seat at the famed Sin City club. You'll just need to supply your own table and cocktail. Renowned for its sonic clarity, transparency, crispness, and punch, the record is now tremendously enhanced, with improved tonality, a deeper soundstage, correct balances, and lifelike presence. Each horn occupies its own space, and Basie's transfixing piano-a focal point throughout-resonates with gorgeous detail and impeccable pacing. The collective's energy almost demands to be measured with an SPL meter.


    Captured in late January and early February 1966, Live at the Sands (Before Frank) contains most of Basie's signature pieces delivered with an enthusiasm, style, and brassiness that exceed that gracing nearly any of the Count's studio efforts. His band is stacked to the nines, with tenor saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, saxophonist/flautist Eric Dixon, and drummer "Sonny" Payne among the prized cast. The Sands dates marked the first time in years that these players, as well as trombonist Al Grey, gathered onstage together.


    Encouraged by Basie, the instrumentalists engage in a series of call-and-response passages and standout solos, not the least of which is Davis' turn on a white-hot "Jumpin' at the Woodside" and he and Dixon's exchanges on "This Could Be the Start of Something Big." No slouch, Basie approaches "Makin' Whoopee" with graceful playfulness, and oversees the assortment of uptempo swing numbers and mellow ballads with astute melodicism. A sublime version of the Don Gibson country standard "I Can't Stop Loving You," arranged by Quincy Jones, can almost be considered a bonus.


    No, it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing. And Basie and his mates have plenty of it on this superb outing. Big-band jazz seldom enjoyed such levels of rhythmic precision, expert charts, or unfettered joy. Unbelievably, this gem has been out of print for years, with original copies both on vinyl and CD commanding steep prices. Mobile Fidelity's reissue restores not only the sonics but the record's place in jazz history.

    Live At The Sands (Awaiting Repress)

    Between 1960 and 1965 (and briefly in 1988), the three singers performed together off and on, and their stage act has been captured in various media. There is film of their performances in 1960 in Las Vegas during the making of Ocean's Eleven, a recording of their show at a nightclub near Chicago in the fall of 1962 legitimately released in 1999 as The Summit: In Concert, and a videotape of a closed-circuit benefit performance from 1965. In September 1963, preparing for another group film, Robin and the Seven Hoods, the three got together during a Martin engagement at the Sands in Las Vegas, and Sinatra had his record label, Reprise, record the proceedings, but ultimately decided against releasing an album at the time. This is that recording, and much of it will sound familiar to anyone who has encountered other Rat Pack shows. In his liner notes, Bill Zehme quotes Bill Miller, Sinatra's accompanist, as saying that maybe 30 percent of the act was ad libbed. Miller added, Usually by Dean, and that sounds right. As usual, Martin begins with comic rewrites of standards, in particular a version of Cole Porter's I Love Paris rendered as I Love Vegas. Sinatra follows with a straight six-song set, and then he and Martin joke it up for a while before giving way to a brief set by Davis. Many of the jokes are repeated from previous performances, but some are new. The key, of course, is the trio's camaraderie, which remains a delight.

    Raising Sand

    For Alison Krauss, musical collaboration has been a way of life. Her latest musical collaboration, Raising Sand, is an astonishing album recorded in tandem with rock vocalist and songwriter Robert Plant. Raising Sand is their first recorded endeavor, and will prove revelatory to fans and the media on two counts: first that it happened at all, and, more importantly, that it is as successful and illuminating as it is.


    From its embryonic, conceptual stages well before any music materialized the mere idea of Raising Sand held infinite fascination for both its creators and those around them. As word spread of an impending musical collaboration between Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, imaginations ran wild. Two artists, each at the pinnacle of their respective pantheons, Robert and Alison have seemingly little in common. But just below the surface, an elemental understanding flowed between them, waiting to be tapped...


    Under the careful sonic stewardship of producer T Bone Burnett, Raising Sand is pitched three steps beyond some cosmic collision of early urban blues, spacious West Texas country, and the unrealized potential of the folk-rock revolution. Shockingly evocative, it is an album that uncovers popular musics elemental roots while sounding effortlessly, breathtakingly modern. Despite hailing from distinctly different backgrounds, Plant and Krauss share a maverick spirit and willingness to extend the boundaries of their respective genres. Raising Sand finds Plant and Krauss functioning as sympathetic equals: creating a powerful new sound from both their common musical ground and their unrivaled sense of empathy.

    Emperor Of Sand

    Emperor Of Sand finds Mastodon returning to a deeply imaginative and complex conceptual storyline that ponders the nature of time. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the band conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass. Emperor of Sand is like the grim reaper, says drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor. Sand represents time. If you or anyone you know has ever received a terminal diagnosis, the first thought is about time. Invariably, you ask, 'How much time is left?'


    We're reflecting on mortality, adds bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders. To that end, the album ties into our entire discography. It's 17 years in the making, but it's also a direct reaction to the last two years. We tend to draw inspiration from very real things in our lives.


    Emperor Of Sand was recorded at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, just outside Mastodon's hometown of Atlanta, with producer Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Neil Young, AC/DC, Rage Against The Machine), who first worked with Mastodon on their seminal 2009 album Crack The Skye.

    The Mission is an English gothic rock band from the UK formed in 1986.


    Initially known as The Sisterhood, the band was started by front man Wayne Hussey and bassist Craig Adams (both from The Sisters of Mercy). Aside from Hussey, the line-up has changed several times during the years and the band has been on hiatus twice.


    Having sold over 4 million albums, the band reformed to celebrate 25 years of The Mission. Hussey, Hinkler and Adams reunited in 2011 to kick start a new chapter of the band and continue to tour the world & release new material.


    Carved in Sand is the third regular studio album by The Mission, originally released in 1990. It reached #7 in the UK Albums Chart, making it the second of two top ten albums and overall best-selling album in the band's career. Four singles were released from the album: Butterfly on a Wheel, Deliverance, Into the Blue, Hands Across the Ocean/Amelia.


    The band had invited members of its fan club to help select the tracks for the album.


    The album saw the return of Tim Palmer as producer. The album was recorded at Jacobs studios and mixed at Swanyard studios.

    After spending two years living on opposite coasts and pursuing their own
    creative projects, Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp returned last spring to set to
    work on the sixth full-length album from the Rosebuds. Joining up with Bon
    Iver frontman Justin Vernon (a friend and former bandmate who, in a 2011
    interview, noted that the Rosebuds make "some of the most important
    music in the world"), the North Carolina-bred duo spent a week in Vernon's
    studio teasing out a batch of songs that effortlessly weave the hooky song-craft of classic jangle-pop, the cagey romanticism of new wave, and a
    refined yet full-hearted sensibility all their own. Featuring Vernon on guitar
    and synths-as well as Bon Iver drummer Matt McCaughan and Sylvan Esso's
    Nick Sanborn on bass, both longtime pals and cohorts of the Rosebuds-the
    resulting Sand + Silence radiates both a graceful intensity and the loose,
    joyful energy that comes from making music with friends.

    Live at Massey Hall 1971 (Awaiting Repress)

    In hindsight, Neil Young now admits that Live At Massey Hall should have come out between After the Gold Rush and Harvest. The legendary 1971 concert features a solo Young with just a guitar, a piano and a mic debuting what were mostly new songs at the time. I'm gonna sing mostly new songs tonight, Neil Young tells the rapt Massey Hall audience, I've written so many new ones that I can't think of anything else to do with them other than sing 'em. The sound quality is impeccable and the setting lends a profound intimacy to Young's voice and musicianship, making this an overall remarkable recording and a mystery that it wasn't released sooner. The acclaimed Toronto performance features brilliant takes on some of Young's most enduring classics including; Old Man, Cowgirl In The Sand, Ohio and a suite of A Man Needs A Maid and Heart Of Gold before they were recorded for Harvest. Live At Massey Hall is a newly mined rock gem here on Classic Records' stunning 180g Quiex Super Vinyl Profile!

    POSTER

    The Tijuana Panthers are from Long Beach, a great band, staring at the sea, staring at the sand... POSTER is their latest album. POSTER? As in Post Punk? Post Surf? Post Cowpunk? How about post any wave that has come and gone and will come back and go again? Post all that. How about putting the 'post' back in posterity? POSTER is another great record by the Tijuana Panthers! Not just for posterity's sake - for RIGHT NOW! Earlier Tijuana Panthers albums were urgent - as if cranking out the hits was objective number one. They cranked out the hits and they did it true. From point A to point B. But POSTER is the Tijuana Panthers now, at their most confident and present minded. They have arrived. They've stepped out of the past or future and into the now. Go back if you must to revisit the hits, but POSTER is now, I say! There is no longer a race against time. On this album the hit feeling is all around you. They are exploring the time and space of that feeling. Sounds come and go, maybe to return, maybe not. This is the Tijuana Panthers freed from the tried and true structure. They have freed themselves only to be trapped again and again, in this moment, making noise, stretching out, letting odds and ends fall where they may. After all, this album was recorded in just two days! No time for fallacy! No time for façade! POSTER is but a moment to be lived and continually re-lived! What else do we have? Truth itself?! All I know - and can ever know - is this moment now, POSTER, apartment windows opening and closing, lyrics passing like ads on buses, tones swelling and crashing through breezeways.

    Opposites

    Biffy Clyro's sixth studio album Opposites is an attention-commanding two-disc behemoth. The division between the two halves isn't as apparent as one might anticipate from a project such as this (with a title such as that). Thematically, each disc does adhere to its subjects - the former an anxious, bleak chapter, told with a raw intensity; the latter playing host to a more positive, uplifting premise.
    But sonically, Opposites is very much a single body of work. The Sand at the Core of Our Bones segues seamlessly into The Land at the End of Our Toes, making for an overall steadfast record that's unmistakeably theirs.


    In amongst the seismic riffs and knockout choruses that the band has made its calling card are twinkling vocal hooks, bagpipes, little punctuations of harp, yowling bass, and overt humour. Many of the above can be found in Stingin' Belle alone, which houses the lyric "you think you're cool like a porcupine". For a band with the tools to be a staid, ever-earnest entity, a pleasing sense of wit continues to be a key facet of Biffy Clyro.

    Gorelick (Awaiting Repress)

    Dead Kenny Gs have made their punk rock masterpiece. A 17-minute EP entitled Gorelick. Not one more second is needed as the DKGs slash and burn their way through six tracks, including originals like Beer, Daddy Issues and Punk Rock Girlfriend, plus a bruising rendition of their namesake The Dead Kennedys' Kill The Poor.


    The combustible punk-jazz trio featuring saxophonist Skerik, bassist Brad Houser and vocaslist/vibraphonist/drummer Mike Dillon have garnered a fanatical cult fan-base over years of incessant touring and critical praise, as well as through related projects like Garage A Trois, Critters Buggin and Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle. Gorelick will be released as a limited vinyl pressing with only 500 copies being issued.


    Dead Kenny Gs is a definitive statement of purpose: a resolute denunciation of all-things artificial. Skerik and his compatriots use their un-compromised art to draw an aesthetic line in the sand at the expense of crass commercialization that contaminates our art, our food, and what passes for our political discourse. It's fun, fearless, and, if you are the ass-shaking type, you can get down accordingly. - Popmatters

    Heartbreak Pass, by seminal alt-country/
    rock band Giant Sand marks their 30th anniversary. Individually,
    each track on the record looms large on its own but, when
    heard as one complete offering, you know that you are listening
    to something very, very special. The Arizona desert has been a
    predominate theme and source of inspiration for Howe Gelb, the
    indie rock pioneer and frontman for Giant Sand. The group can
    also be looked at as Howe's one-man-band with many guests and
    collaborators. The album features Steve Shelly (Sonic Youth),
    Grant-Lee Phillips and Ilse DeLange (Common Linnets).

    Long Live The Angels

    Long Live The Angels is a mesmerizing journey through the triumphs and tragedies of the last four years of Emeli SandÉ's extraordinary life. Exultant in its delivery and bold in its intent, the record is steeped in an unreserved sense of freedom and self-discovery. It will be released on November 11 via Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.


    It's from that feeling of freedom that new single "Hurts" was born, an uplifting track brimming with heart and soul. "This entire album is about me not holding back and not censoring myself, and 'Hurts' is an explosion, it's just real talk," explains SandÉ. A lot has happened to SandÉ in the four years since the resounding success of her critically acclaimed number one record, Our Version Of Events. Not only was it the biggest selling album of 2012 and second biggest selling album of 2013 in the UK, but it was also certified 7x platinum, spent seven non-consecutive weeks at No.1 and exceeded The Beatles' previous record by spending 63 consecutive weeks in the top 10 and selling over 4.6 million copies worldwide.


    The multi-instrumentalist initially made her mark as a songwriter in the UK urban scene via acts such as Wiley, Wretch 32 and Chip, later becoming a highly sought-after writer for a wide array of international acts including Alicia Keys, Rihanna, and Katy Perry. As 2013 came to a close, SandÉ was exhausted and unable to ignore the strain it was putting on a number of close relationships, "Sounds a bit dramatic but I just wanted to disappear. I just had this overwhelming sensation and realization everything had to stop," she reflects, "And then slowly it did."


    Recorded in New York, L.A, London, and Oxford, Long Live the Angels crackles with energy and a sense of euphoria for both listener and artist. Certain tracks may be slower in spirit, but are dynamic in delivery, "I made sure the production wasn't overworked," Emeli points out, "And I really went for it vocally!" SandÉ's outstanding voice sits at the heart of the record, underscoring the singer's mastery of both technique and form but also her natural intuition as a vocalist. Opening track "Selah", a short poem backed by a choral choir sets the tone, written solely by SandÉ during a time of reflection; it's a powerful and poignant introduction to the album.


    Next up is the sensational "Breathing Underwater", which SandÉ describes as "the ultimate journey in rebirth and self-discovery." The super stripped back "Give Me Something" is a wondrous take on keeping the faith despite the odds being stacked against you, and the beautifully melodic Shakes is a piano and strings-led masterpiece. "Garden" harks back to SandÉ's urban roots, written and produced in London with Jay Electronica, who also features on the track. It's a reminder that Emeli's influences are as much R&B and rap as they are singer/songwriter. "Lonely" is a long hard look at love and has the feel of a track made on a summery late sixties afternoon. "Sweet Architect" (Johnny Coffer and Mojam) is the show-stopping centerpiece punctuated by the most remarkable choir.


    Towards the close of Long Live the Angels, we witness a jubilant SandÉ experiencing the hopes of new possibilities; "Every Single Little Piece" is a stirring mid-tempo ballad, with a huge chorus and soul-stirring strings and the uplifting "Highs & Lows" is a dedication to her family, her history and her heritage.


    Long Live The Angels marks a brand new chapter in SandÉ's life, "I'm proud of my first album and thankful for the experiences it gave me. But I'm so much happier with my new album and with where I am in life."

    Double Star

    Limited Edition



    Just ten years ago, Rick Rizzo and Tara Key put the finishing touches on their Thrill Jockey debut, Dark Edson Tiger, did a few live shows including All Tomorrow's Parties at Camber Sands, and jubilantly declared the whole affair a rousing success, vowing to ride the tsunami swell of momentum into their next project.



    And now, in a Van Winkle like-daze, they are back, a new batch of instrumental collaborations ready to test the brave new decade. It would be easy to say that they simply wanted to wait out the debacle of poor government and unmitigated corporate greed, but truth be told, the seeds for Double Star were sown in early live New York City sessions with bassist Tim Harris not long after the Dark Edson dust had settled. These let-the-tape-roll sessions produced some of the guitar psychedelia that long-time observers might have expected from these two, including the epic tracks that now comprise Noisy Attic as well as the genesis of Interruptive Organ.



    The DNA for this album of course lies in their respective Kentucky punk rock roots, but a lot of living has been done between then and now. Double Star is a barrel-aged kind of record, sometimes inviting small fragrant sips, but sometimes asking you to knock one back and burn the throat a little. Worth waiting a decade for.

    Blurry Blue Mountain

    Import

    2010 marks the 25th anniversary of Valley Of Rain, the debut album by Giant Sand, the ever-shifting alternative rock band overseen by the Godfather of Alt-Country Howe Gelb. With that in mind, the band are celebrating in the only way they know how: with a flurry of great music, including the release of this new Giant Sand record Blurry Blue Mountain. This special edition is being released in a limited edition of 500 copies on blue vinyl and 500 copies on picture disc.



    On this album, it happened that every session we were able to record came between work loads that rendered us at that point of sleeping and waking. Like the poppy fields in Wizard of Oz, we went in and out of consciousness at various times during recording. This is not a bad thing. Nor does it make the record sound like we're asleep. it has the momentum of that place between sleep and being awake. and in that narrow slip of existence lies a landscape of reason that most of us hurry past in daily lives. This record is planted firmly there between the crystal clear focus of your day to day and the luxury of sweet fuzzy sleep, we welcome you to the blurry blue mountain. - Howe Gelb

    Ulysses (Awaiting Repress)


    Includes Two Unreleased Tracks Not Available Anywhere Else


    Victoria, B.C.'s Current Swell is set to release their new album, Ulysses, on May 6, 2014. The 12-tracks
    on Ulysses perfectly deliver the band's textured, deep-groove sound while capturing the energy of their live
    show, which has earned them scores of fans across The Americas, Australia and Europe. The band will
    debut many of these new songs next month in Austin during SXSW.


    Ulysses was produced by Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Sand) at Vancouver's iconic
    Greenhouse Studios. The album captures every bit of warmth the studio's massive Neve console could
    provide, as heard on "Rollin'" (a showcase for Stanton's exemplary slide work), the title track "Ulysses,"
    rocker "Keys to the Kingdom" and the readymade sing-along "One Day I'll Be Rich."
    While Current Swell spent the better part of six months recording their previous album (and Nettwerk
    debut), 2012's Long Time Ago, the four band members entered the studio with a clear goal and knocked
    Ulysses out in 20 days.


    From appearances at key festivals from Australia to Canada (Byron Bay Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Rock
    The Shores, Ottawa Bluesfest and more), to sold-out headline tours of Brazil, to support slots with such
    established artists as Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K'Naan, The
    Tragically Hip and even The Beach Boys, Current Swell's infectious sound and raucous live shows have
    earned the quartet scores of devoted fans around the word. In 2011, Current Swell earned first place at
    Vancouver's Peak Performance Project and headlined a Canada Day concert to a crowd of 45,000.

    Repave

    It's been four years since the first Volcano Choir album, Unmap, provided a glimpse into the collaborative mindset between a singer and a band that inspired him. Ideas were minted, written at a
    distance and realized in the studio; edges sanded back and flaps tucked in, the craftsmanship of the
    endeavor bearing evidence of the craft itself, and the technology used to assemble it. Unmap strove to
    find strands of life between the ones and zeroes - a carefully constructive narrative that showed the
    listener through its darkest passages like a tour guide leading their wards through a cave, with nothing but a slack length of rope and the senses of sound and touch. Just as importantly, it brought these people together, setting an expectation: be your own band. Achieve transference. Learn how to play these songs in the live setting. Tour Japan. Do some dates in America. Pull the life from the record and share it with tiny segments of the world.


    Repave brings Volcano Choir into sharp focus. The glitch-laden, cautious presentation of the band's
    previous work serves as points of both reference and departure across these eight songs, the product
    of growing conviction and trust, of a fully-operational rock band, gifted in shading and nuance, and rumbling with power. It's the sound of the creative process as it evolves and ultimately explodes, the seamless interleaving of electronic and acoustic/amplified instruments, multithreaded with the timbre and technology of the human voice as it enters and exits the equation. Moreover, Repave is the sound of confident musicians extending their reach to anthemic peaks and pulling back to reveal moments of real vulnerability, sure enough of themselves to let them stand on their own.


    If Repave reminds you of other kinds of records from the past decade or so, it's done so on the bonds
    between the members of Volcano Choir, how their friendships were fortified over the years-long
    process of writing and recording these songs. There is an openness to this work that won't be taken for
    granted - real, moving tales of change, sadness, loss and truth grace the wordplay of these tracks, an account of life between the fringes of poetry and reality. With each verse you can sense that someone,
    somewhere is listening to this music and getting stronger, feeling better, learning to open up their soul.


    Volcano Choir is Jon Mueller, Chris Rosenau, Matthew Skemp, Daniel Spack, Justin Vernon and
    Thomas Wincek.

    Mexico

    For the past four years, Follow That Bird was one of the most buzzed about bands from their hometown of Austin, Texas. And considering how many bands are packed into that one city, that ain't faint praise. They were picked by Matador Records to be the lead single on the 2010 Austin-only compilation Casual Victim Pile, and snapped up enough accolades to have Bill Callahan have them support him on tour and ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead ask them to be the opening act on their full tour of the Western US last summer.


    After that...everything went a little awry. The band's label folded, taking with it the money promised them to record their debut full-length. But instead of seeing that as a major roadblock, the trio saw it as the perfect chance to forge their own path. With it came a new band name - Mirror Travel - and a chance to further strengthen their belief in the power of the music they were creating together. Or as Tiffanie Lanmon put it, We had to walk into the desert and do things our way.


    The desert Lanmon (drums) is referring to is the one that surrounds Marfa, Texas, where the she, Paul Brinkley (bass/vocals) and Lauren Green (guitar/vocals) decamped for two weeks to record with Gory Smelley (YACHT, Eleanor Friedberger, Grouper) at Marfa Recording Studio. It was just the isolating experience the band needed to bring their album Mexico into the world.


    The results? One of the most warmly engaging records you're likely to hear this year. With Smelley's help, Mirror Travel were able to more fully embrace the dreamy garage pop sound that got them to where they are today.


    Opener Sands may give the impression of a band lost in a shoegazer wilderness, but let the punchy Nuggets-style bassline and reverb-slathered drive of the next track I Want You To Know shove aside all those preconceptions. The rest of Mexico flows by with the same steady gaze and attack, with occasional upticks and dips in tempo and temperature.


    Looked at as a complete package, Mexico is a document of a trio who, as their name change would suggest, are taking themselves more seriously and looking at the road ahead with much more purpose and intent. Like the long drives between tour stops and the seemingly endless desert that helped inspire these songs, you're meant to drink this album in slowly, steadily, and with your eye fixed on the horizon.

    I'm Okay

    Jena Malone and Lem Jay Ignado first met at a Christmas carol party at the Mandrake in Los Angeles, California in 2008. They ended up playing together that night and performed "Walking in a Winter Wonderland". Jena sand completely in scat-style gibberish and Lem Jay musically did not miss a beat. A unique musical friendship was born. Jena had built an instrument she called "The Shoe", which was simply an old steamer trunk she dollied around with a plethora of electronic instruments inside. I'm Okay was recorded during the summer of 2013 as a follow up to their 2009 debut EP.
