REDI-SUN-5343xMamas And The Papas, The
If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears (Mono) (Awaiting Repress)Ranked 127/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Upon its release in 1966, the Mamas and the Papas debut LP If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears introduced a fresh new sound that would permanently alter the face of contemporary popular music. Leader John Phillips visionary producing, arranging and songwriting abilities combined with the quartets breathtaking harmonies to make music that was both effortlessly accessible and creatively adventurous. The album quickly topped the Billboard album chart, bringing folk-rock into the pop mainstream and making Phillips, his then-wife Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty and Cass Elliot into instant multimedia celebrities. In the years since its release, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears has come to be regarded as one of the finest pop albums of the 60s and one of the best debut releases ever.
If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears was the product of Lou Adlers visionary production, Phillips savvy studio mastery and the foursomes extended period of musical woodshedding in the Virgin Islands. The months of meticulous rehearsals paid off in the groups ability to emerge as a fully-formed musical unit right out of the box, delivering such instant classics as California Dreamin, Monday, Monday and Go Where You Wanna Go to the willing ears of record buyers and radio listeners.
At the time of If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears initial release, the presence of a toilet in the periphery of the albums cover photo caused faint-hearted moral guardians to pressure the groups record company to excise the offending fixture from subsequent pressings of the album. Sundazeds new vinyl edition of If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears restores the rare, long-missing toilet cover, and features the albums superior original mono mix. Its also mastered from the original analog tapes, and pressed on high-definition vinylthe better to maintain the same joyous sense of discovery that listeners felt when first hearing this timeless gem in 1966.1.

The Best Of King CurtisLimited Anniversary Edition
Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl
Mastered Impeccably From The Atco Records Stereophonic Tapes By Joe Reagoso
King Curtis will be forever known as one of the leading voices of the 60's soul renaissance and truly one of the more championed musicians during his short lifetime. Thanks to today's respect and care given to his music by a whole new generation of musicians and fans, King Curtis forever reigns as one of soul's pioneers. Much like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, and other superstars before him, Curtis Owsley (King Curtis) had the necessary ingredients of stellar musicianship and songwriting acumen which successfully reached across all gospel, soul, rock and pop genres.
King Curtis created some of his greatest sides ever for ATCO Records, where he spent his time on earth creating some of the most masterful and funkiest soul music ever waxed. In 1968, he was honored with his first greatest hits collection simply titled "The Best of King Curtis." This stunning array of his most memorable hit singles and stellar album staples continues to illustrate how important a force he was then and still is today, over four decades since!
"The Best of King Curtis" features a heavy menu of his finest moments like the funk infused "Harper Valley P.T.A." and Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her", the definitive balladry of Ben E. King's "Spanish Harlem", and of course his chart toppers "Ode To Billie Joe" "Soul Serenade" and a definitive tribute to his friend Otis Redding with "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay" which truly opened up a worldwide audience to this sorely missed genius.
This 1968 Greatest Hits LP hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades... that is until now! Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Best Of King Curtis. Mastered impeccably from the original ATCO Records tapes by Joe "Philly Soul" Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain.

Don't Press Your Luck! The In Sound Of 60's ConnecticutConnecticut had a solid garage rock scene in the mid-'60s, and more than a few of the best bands in the region logged time at Wallingford's Trod Nossel Studios (aka Syncron Sound), a recording facility run by Thomas Doc Cavalier, truly an unlikely champion of local rock & roll. Cavalier was a successful dentist who gave up his practice to manage New England rockers the Bram Rigg Set and the Shags (not to be confused with the infamous Wiggin sisters), and when Syncron Sound (where both bands had recorded) fell on hard times, he bought the studio, changed the name, and turned it into a profitable business that's still running today.
Don't Press Your Luck! collects material from a handful of New England acts who recorded at Trod Nossel and were overseen by Cavalier, and there's little arguing that the folks at the studio knew their stuff -- compared to many compilations of '60s garage rarities, these tracks sound lively and robust, crackling with teenage energy but recorded with a skill that didn't blunt the enthusiasm of the musicians. (Bob Irwin's superb remastering is also to be commended.) And the music is pretty great, too -- the Wildweeds' classic No Good to Cry (featuring a pre-NRBQ Al Anderson) is the standout here, but there's also some moody beat stuff from the Shags (Don't Press Your Luck, Hide Away), fuzztone-powered angst from the Bram Rigg Set (Sleepless Nights, You Don't Love Me, and a potent cover of Them's I Can Only Give You Everything), and intriguing weirdness from the misanthropic Fourth Ryke (Please Leave, You're Cutting Out).
While you'd expect high goofiness from a group called Uranus and the Five Moons, their material is actually smart and adventurous (Nothing Remains, SSS Happenin' Here). Some radio spots recorded at Trod Nossel also make the cut, as does a demonstration of the wonders of multi-track recorded based around a session by the Shags. Garage fanatics and folks with a taste for Connecticut history will both find this set to be well worth investigating.1. I Can Only Give You Everything: Bram Rigg Set

Bitter Tears is a concept album released by Johnny Cash in 1964. It is one of several Americana records by Cash. As the title implies, the tracks on the album focus exclusively on the history of and problems facing Native Americans in the United States.
And not without success: "The Ballad of Ira Hayes", about the story of Ira Hayes, a young Marine of Pima, reached No. 3 on the Country charts.
The album is a sensitive, clear-eyed take on the unfair treatment of the American Indian. It's stark and moving, his best Americana album of the '60s.1. As Long As The Grass Shall Grow

REDI-SUN-5377xOscar And The Majestics
No Chance BabyFor anyone with an overindulged appetite for '60s garage compilations, Oscar & the Majestics must seem like old friends. In Sundazeds exhaustive dig through the prized USA & Destination Records catalogs, no other act and that includes hit makers like the Buckinghams and Cryin Shames, came close to the coverage afforded Oscar Hamod & the Majestics. If the group had left more than five tracks in the USA vaults, no doubt Sundazed would have included more.
Well, that was before Oscar opened up his vast personal archives, undisturbed for over 40 years, allowing for this first-ever collection of his complete 60s output. This includes the bands best known USA sides, like the impossibly cool, fuzzed-out Soul Finger, as well as ultra-rare, Oscar-pressed singles (including the first official reissue of House of the Rising Sun 1969; an over the top rearrangement that suffers no shortage of Oscar-fuzz/Oscar-attitude.
Most rewarding of all, this set unleashes the unreleased Baby Under My Skin and I Feel Good; both seriously Kinky krunchers from the USA era. As a bonus, Sundazed blows the lid off the untold history of Mr. Hamod and his rockin crew in a package also crammed with vintage photos and rare 45 label scans.1. Got to Have Your Lovin

Live May 11, 1968Blessed with one of the best live recording qualities one can hear from '60s efforts -- especially considering that H.P. Lovecraft was never a major success -- Live May 11, 1968 provides a reasonable alternate way for the curious to find out what the shouting was all about. Split almost evenly between first and second album material, and featuring then-new bassist Jeff Boyan (brought in to replace Jerry McGeorge), this release shows that the quintet certainly had something.
Edwards and Michaels' lead vocals work great together live -- their training and earlier studio experience showing well -- and the whole band tackles the spirit of the times to a T. Two standout performances are the one-two punch of The White Ship and At the Mountain of Madness, both of which also make for the perfect tribute to the original Lovecraft himself. Occasional introductory comments surface from Edwards, but otherwise the five just get it all together and take off -- and do so quite well.1. Wayfaring Stranger

To meet the standards of Analogue Productions, our Beach Boys album reissues had a mission to achieve: Present the band's music the way that Brian Wilson - famed co-founder, songwriter and arranger - intended. Mono mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California crew rose to fame! And we've got 'em!
For the early part of the Beach Boys career, all of their singles were mixed and mastered and released only in the mono format - they didn't release a single in stereo until 1968. In those days, hits were made on AM radio in mono. And the mono of those times worked well for Wilson, who suffers from partial deafness. Still, apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today! was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.
We've taken 10 of the most classic, best-sounding Beach Boy titles ever and restored them to their mono glory!
But there's no disputing that the close harmonies and one-of-a-kind rhythms of hits like "Surfer Girl," "In My Room," "Little Deuce Coupe" and more lend themseleves naturally to stereo. So we've got your 2-channel needs covered with prime stereo mix versions as well.
Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in old school Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time honored favorites shine brighter than the originals!
Put simply, this is the Beach Boys at their mid-'60s prime. Ironically, the band's greatest evolutionary leap was spurred by its leader, Brian Wilson, who decided to drop out of the band's live performances after a December 1964 nervous breakdown to concentrate on honing the Beach Boys' studio sound. With Wilson's productions gaining a significant new depth and confidence (note the innovative modulations on 'Dance, Dance, Dance'), the first half of Today seems a logical, upbeat step forward from its predecessors. But it's the album's second act that steals the show, setting the stage for the triumph of Pet Sounds. Indeed, it's easy to imagine gorgeous, introspective tracks such as 'Please Let Me Wonder,' 'She Knows Me Too Well,' and 'In the Back of My Mind' intertwined with the best of Sounds. - Amazon.com
