Kind of Blue (Mono) (Awaiting Repress)Ranked 12/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
The Best-Selling Jazz Album Of All Time
A Cornerstone Of Recorded Music
So much has been said and written about Miles Davis Kind Of Blue, its virtually impossible to summarize all the necessary info to the length of this note. We could simply list some facts (best sold Jazz album ever worldwide). We could try to explain why its the best jazz album ever made, but the music itself will do that to you. As Bill Evans said in the original liner notes for the record, the band did not play through any of these pieces prior to recording. Miles Davis laid out the themes before the tape rolled and the band improvised.1. So What

The Ultimate Analogue Test LP
Analogue Productions set out to produce the ultimate test record.
We've consulted many experts in the field, including mastering engineers, audio experts, turntable experts and audiophile listeners, to create a test record that's never been made before. When Barry Wolifson from Sterling Sound in New York City called us with the same idea we had been thinking about - that being to create the ultimate test record - he and our audio expert Clark Williams began to brainstorm and research ideas until they were both completely satisfied with what should go on the record.
Most of the test records in the past have been made to test a variety of equipment. This test record excludes silly cannon shots, typewriters, voices on one channel and other useless fluff. This one specifically addresses your turntable and cartridge. It's designed to provide the basic test signals necessary to calibrate a turntable or cutting lathe as simply as possible. Most of the signals have specific implications, but it is certainly possible to use them in any number of novel ways.
This record was mastered and cut on a Neumann VMS 80 lathe at Sterling Sound and pressed at Record Technology, Inc. on high-quality, 180-gram virgin vinyl.
General Reference Level
This 1 kHz reference tone will allow you to establish a "base level" for all measurements.
Track 1 1Khz reference tone 7cm/s Mono, in phase (Lateral)
Basic reference for all measurements, adjust meter for maximum convenience (in the studio 0VU).
Adjust preamp channel balance for equal output.
Also used to check the offset angle of the photo cartridge; L&R signals should be exactly in phase as displayed on an oscilloscope.
Track 2 1kHz reference level Left channel only
Measure Right channel output.
Track 3 1kHz reference level Right channel only
Measure Left channel output.
The object is to sit the stylus exactly perpendicular in the groove.
Twist cartridge about its radial axis until the measurements from Track 2 and Track 3 are equal or very close to equal for both channels.
High Frequency Adjustment
Tracks 4, 5 and 6 are used to calibrate the RIAA high frequency equalizer of a phono preamp. This will be used to calibrate a mastering lathe's phono preamplifier or any phono preamplifier that has these adjustments.
Track 4 1 kHz tone at -20 below reference level, Lateral
Reference for High Frequency test.
Track 5 10 kHz reference tone at -20dbu, Lateral
Adjust the high frequency until the output level equals that of Track 4.
Track 6 1 kHz to 20 kHz sweep at -20dbu, Mono (Lateral)
The AC millivoltmeter reading should stay constant across all frequencies. There are a number of factors which can affect frequency response, including cable capacitance, cartridge loading, tracking force and worn parts. Because of this, it can be difficult to achieve perfectly flat frequency response. Sometimes by making small compromises in the 10 kHz adjustment, a better overall frequency response can be achieved.
Low Frequency Adjustment
Tracks 7 & 8 are used to calibrate the RIAA low frequency equalizer of a phono preamp.
Track 7 1 kHz to 20 Hz sweep at 0 VU (Lateral)
Play Track 7 and measure the output with your AC millivolt meter.
Ideally, the output will be flat across all frequencies. When viewed on an oscilloscope, the amplitude would remain constant during the frequency downsweep.
Track 8 100 Hz reference tone at 0 vu (Lateral)
Adjust LF Eq to reference (which is your reading from Track 1).
Track 9 VTA adjust
This is an IEC intermodulation distortion (IMD) test signal; 60Hz & 4kHz 4:1 ratio.
Using an IMD tester, adjust VTA by raising or lowering the tonearm for minimum distortion.
Track 10 Standard Wow & Flutter test signal; 3150Hz
The Wow & Flutter meter will give dynamic speed variations as a percentage deviation from nominal.
Also, the frequency counter should read exactly 3150 Hz for nominal speed. You can use the Hz function on your multi-meter (if so equipped) to verify speed here as well. You can also use to find the measurements at 45RPM. The correct reading at 45RPM would be 4253 Hz (45/33.33) x 3150.
Track 1 Anti-skating test; 315Hz amplitude sweep to +12dbu (Lateral)
Signal should remain clean in both channels up to the highest level, both audibly and as viewed on an oscilloscope. In case of distortion, increase anti-skating force or decrease anti-skate until breakup occurs equally in both channels. The left channel information is inscribed on the inner groove wall, the right channel information, on the outer groove wall. Because of the offset angle of a pivoted tonearm, a constantly varying vector force biases the arm towards the center of the record causing the stylus to lose contact with the outer (i.e. right channel) groove wall. Both linear and modulated groove velocity, tracking force, stylus profile, and vinyl composition are contributing factors. The anti skating force attempts to ameliorate this by applying an opposing similar force.
It is also accepted that the overall force vector increases as the tonearm approaches closer to the spindle or end of the record.
Track 2 Pink noise lateral
Track 3 Pink noise vertical
Used for cartridge "demagnetizing"
You can also use this track to loosen up the cantilever's suspension to help break in a new cartridge. Play these tracks five to ten times after every 300 hours of normal LP playback.
Track 4 1kHz @ reference level, vertical
This out-of-phase signal should cancel to nothing when summed to mono.
Any signals still present are distortion artifacts, lack of channel balance, or timing (phase) anomalies. This test can be a second confirmation of anti-skate adjustment.
Track 5 1kHz to 10Hz sweep @ -20 below
reference level, vertical
Resonance anomalies in the tonearm / cartridge interface will show up as amplitude peaks and dips as the frequency sweeps down.
Once again, by listening in 'Mono' it is easier to hear the distortion artifacts.
Track 6 Silent groove for bearing rumble and table isolation
During playback of this track, nothing should be transmitted from the turntable to the speakers. Replay the track and gently tap on the rack or base that the turntable is resting on. There should be little or no thump transferred to the speakers. This track will help you experiment with turntable isolation methods and products to be able to get the most out of your playback system. You may want to use a closed or sealed headphone for best listening results, or a stethoscope on the plinth.

Musik Wie Von Einem Anderen Stern: Manger Test LP (Discontinued)The Manger LP test consists of 15 tracks, many of which are already known to the audiophile crowd. For example, tracks 11 and 12 are by Chesky Records, the well known Livingston Taylor selections. Track 3 is a Beethoven's Piano Sonata (# 8, C-Dur, Op. 13) by Denon/Nippon Columbia. Still from the same label is track #4 (from Denon Professional Test CD): Beethoven Ich liebe dich, Hermann Prey. Then there's something from Philips, Klavier Records, Divox Jazz etc.
The quality of the chosen tracks is excellent, as one may expect from a test disc. The Manger LP test offers different kinds of music, from classical to jazz and light pop. Each track is meant to test a particular instrument or musical genre, so you have track no. 8 which is devoted to classical guitar (Capriccio Arabo), track no. 9 for double-bass, track 12 for an acapella choir and so on.
The last track of the disc is devoted to a percussion ensemble (The O-Zone Percussion Group), always very useful to test rise-time, decays and macrodynamics. This audiophile test LP is very interesting, reasonably priced and with a good selection of excellently recorded tracks.

One of the most stunning debuts in rock history, and one of the definitive albums of the psychedelic era. On Are You Experienced?, Jimi Hendrix synthesized various elements of the cutting edge of 1967 rock into music that sounded both futuristic and rooted in the best traditions of rock, blues, pop, and soul. It was his mind-boggling guitar work, of course, that got most of the ink, building upon the experiments of British innovators like Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend to chart new sonic territories in feedback, distortion, and sheer volume. It wouldn't have meant much, however, without his excellent material, whether psychedelic frenzy (Foxey Lady, Manic Depression, Purple Haze), instrumental freak-out jams (Third Stone from the Sun), blues (Hey Joe), or tender, poetic compositions (The Wind Cries Mary) that demonstrated the breadth of his songwriting talents. Not to be underestimated were the contributions of drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, who gave the music a rhythmic pulse that fused parts of rock and improvised jazz. Many of these songs are among Hendrix's very finest; it may be true that he would continue to develop at a rapid pace throughout the rest of his brief career, but he would never surpass his first LP in terms of consistently high quality.

Cold Spring Harbor
The Billy Joel/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Continues!
His Very First Album Revisited For The First Time In The Audiophile Domain
First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation
Mastered By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music And Manufactured At R.T.I.
Billy Joel's debut LP Cold Spring Harbor will always be revered as one of the finest classic early albums from
this superstar singer/songwriter. Released in 1971, Billy had already paid a bunch of dues since the 60's with bands
like The Hassles and Atilla. Already entrenched with a handful of influential radio programmers, Billy Joel took to the
road vigorously to help promote the Cold Spring Harbor album on stations like WNEW in New York and WMMR in Philly,
which eventually helped break Billy to a huge record buying audience. As his nightclub shows became sell outs and
airplay was beginning with his debut LP, Cold Spring Harbor soon became the album which would springboard this
singer/songwriter into an arena artist in a very short time.
Cold Spring Harbor shows this New Yorker's skills in the studio, his stellar vocals, songwriting and amazing
piano artistry. Forty years later these tunes still resonate with his fans as Billy Joel is currently embarking on a very
successful concert tour, and Friday Music is proud to be a part of the celebration with his debut masterwork Cold
As another installment in our exclusive Billy Joel/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this first
time impeccably mastered audiophile LP features some of his greatest songs like the brilliant album opener She's
Got a Way, the Beatle-esqe You Can Make Me Free, the stellar instrumental Nocturne, and his classic debut single
Everybody Loves You Now.
The masterwork contains even more of his most loved classics like the stunning Falling of the Rain and the
country flavor of Turn Around featuring Sneaky Pete from The Byrds on pedal steel guitar.
For a very limited time, we are also enhancing your listening enjoyment with a first time gatefold cover artwork
presentation, which features the original LP sized cover art not seen in years, as well as lyrics to all of these great Billy
Joel songs, making this a keepsake for years to come.
Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, Billy Joel's Cold Spring Harbor will be one of the
more anticipated classic rock releases in the audiophile vinyl domain this year.

Past, Present And Future (Awaiting Repress)Al Stewart's Past, Present and Future launched the artist from being an English coffeehouse staple
into a worldwide rock superstar thanks to the intriguing lyrics and melodies contained within the two sides
of this 1974 masterwork. While achieving cult-like status in the U.K. with his unique brand of folk/rock,
Past, Present and Future featured some of Al Stewart's finest songs like the prog-rock champions Roads
to Moscow, Soho (Needless to Say) and his timeless masterpiece Nostradamus.
While playing college gigs and opening for major recording acts across the states, Al Stewart's Past,
Present and Future grabbed the attention of astute rock radio programmers who had discovered the U.K.
import of this classic before it reached North America. Soon, tracks like Terminal Eyes ignited a wave of
requests, developing the popularity further, while having the luxury of entire sides being played on the
more esoteric FM radio stations across the states.
Aside from being a brilliant composer and wonderful vocalist, Al Stewart also plays some mean
acoustic and electric guitar alongside some of the most important players of our time like Rick Wakeman,
Roger Taylor, Tim Renwick and many others.
Friday Music is no stranger to the important musical catalog of Al Stewart. Therefore, it is with much
honor to continue the Al Stewart Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with the first time audiophile
LP release of Past, Present and Future. Impeccably mastered from the original Janus Records tapes
by Joe Reagoso (Al Stewart/Yes/Traffic), this long out-of-print vinyl album is now back for you to enjoy in
