    The Stranger

    Ranked 67/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Joels Breakthrough Record Loaded With Smash Hits: Movin Out (Anthonys Song), Just the Way You Are, Only the Good Die Young, Shes Always a Woman


    Getting It Right: Mobile Fidelitys Half-Speed Mastered Version Brings Phil Ramones Celebrated Production into Full-Color Detail


    1977 Set a Grammy Winner for Record of the Year and Song of the Year


    Billy Joel entered 1977 with a great track record but in need of breakthrough. Pairing with producer Phil Ramone (Carly Simon, Simon & Garfunkel), who developed the requisite ingredients missing from Joels formula, the singer-songwriter became a household name and chart-topping success courtesy of The Stranger. Certified ten-times platinum, Joels artistic and commercial smash remains a pop-rock benchmark. Better still, it now sounds astonishing.


    An integral part of Mobile Fidelitys Billy Joel catalog restoration series, The Stranger is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI. Far superior to the previous Sony and Simply Vinyl analog reissues, this edition emphasizes the crucial touches and insightful techniques Ramone brought to a batch of material that ranks among Joels most clever, catchy, and sagacious.


    Whereas a handful of Joels preceding efforts feature a near-flawless mix of melodic arrangements and poignant lyrics, the aspects he sought in order to graduate into a more serious artist arrive here via Ramones more muscular, fleshed-out, and rock-enabling production. The streamlined approach slightly strips back the sweeping developments heard on Piano Man and Turnstiles, and on this edition, lays bare the core of the material, allowing the vocalists bittersweet yearning, rollicking 88 notes, and working-class conviction to emanate with full-bodied detail, vivid color, and grand-scale dynamics.


    A Grammy winner for both Record and Song of the Year, Just the Way You Are epitomizes Joels balladic reach, his ability to transfer wistful sentiments and lovelorn emotions. He also flashes a mean streak. The animated Only the Good Die Young bounces and hops to an updated classic-R&B rhythm and, underneath its beauty, Shes Always A Woman hints at trouble underfoot. And then theres the New York-centric, character-rich poetry of the vignettes.


    Akin to many of his influences, Joel nails the grit, personality, specificity, descriptiveness, and behavior of protagonists that populate Movin Out (Anthonys Song) and Scenes From an Italian Diner, each equally at home on The Stranger as well as on a Broadway play or on a golden-era Hollywood film soundtrack. No wonder that, just months after its original release, Joel was no longer a stranger to any of the music-loving public. He would never look back.


    Don't pass up this seminal pop-rock work in the best fidelity its ever enjoyed.

    Recorded in 1989 with the Foreigner's Mick Jones as producer, Joel's new direction proved him correct as the album sailed to the top number one spot of the charts and maintained massive radio play with five huge hit singles for the better part of two years!


    Including the number one We Didn't Start The Fire, the rocker I Go 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 loved albums in his massive catalog of recordings.


    As with our other stellar Billy Joel recordings, Storm Front is mastered impeccably from by Joe Reagoso and pressed on first time 180 Gram Red Vinyl at R.T.I.

    Songs In The Attic

    Songs In the Attic on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity


    1981 Live Album Finds Joel Adding Warmth to Ballads, Punch and Kick to Rockers


    Taking You to the Stage: Mobile Fidelity Version Pulls Gives You a Dead-Center Seat and Wonderful Sonic Perspective


    Ideal Summation of Joel's Early Period Material, Enhanced by Accomplished Band in Concert Setting


    Great live albums often function as documents of a performer's stinting onstage abilities, stopgaps between studio albums, introductions to a musician's earlier work, and/or opportunities for familiar material to be showcased in superior ways. Songs In the Attic serves all of these purposes and more. As Billy Joel's first live album, it's still his best, punctuated by dynamic renditions of favorites and deep cuts, and augmented by a tested band in sync with the pianist.


    A vital component of Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, Songs In the Attic is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI. The resulting presentation effortlessly outshines that heard on all previous editions of this 1981 set. Joel's piano possesses fuller body and lifelike resonance. His veteran group's contributions emerge with newfound clarity, dynamics, decay, and extension. Balances are supreme, and shades and colors blend, amplifying richness and presence.


    On the heels of three multi-platinum albums and a commercial breakthrough, Joel released Songs In the Attic to both tide fans over until 1982's The Nylon Curtain as well to feature material in a looser, warmer setting. The record highlights not only the singer's consistency and knack for indelible melodies, but savvy live techniques. Upbeat tunes such as "Everybody Loves You Now" receive a more fleshed-out treatment that yields added punch and swagger, while balladic numbers like "I've Loved These Days" take on a cozy warmth akin to the feeling of putting on a sweater on a cool fall day.


    Songs In the Attic also bridged the gap for listeners for whom Joel was then a new entity, as many didn't come to his music until The Stranger. Hence, tracks like "Captain Jack" and "The Ballad of Billy the Kid," from Piano Man, get a fresh identity, particularly courtesy of a backing band that, by then, had been gigging with Joel for years. No wonder that, unlike a majority of live records, Songs In the Attic yielded two Top 40 pop hits: "Say Goodbye to Hollywood" and "She's Got a Way." No matter from what angle it's viewed, the set stands as one of the most important and enjoyable live records ever released.

    52nd Street

    Ranked 352/500 on Rolling Stone's List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time


    52nd Street on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Mainstream Perfection: Melodic Devices, Passionate Singing, Sophisticated Arrangements, Jazzy Backdrop Walk Down 52nd Street


    Commanding Sonics: Mobile Fidelity Edition Sets the New Standard in How Joel's 1978 Classic Should-and Does-Sound


    Chart-Topper Certified Seven-Times Platinum: Includes "Big Shot," "Honesty," "My Life"


    Some artists embrace their success by repeating the steps that originally granted them fame. Billy Joel did the opposite, refusing to be contained by prescribed approaches or constrained by a given label. The follow-up to the breakthrough The Stranger, 52nd Street further expands on its predecessor's bold production techniques and inventive arrangements, incorporating more sophisticated textures as well as reflecting a jazz edge gleaned from New York City's thriving club scene.


    A key component of Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, The Stranger is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 45RPM 180 gram LP at RTI. The wider and deeper grooves-as well as the meticulous mastering process-yield resplendent dynamics, broad soundstages, three-dimensional perspectives, and tonal balances absent from prior editions. Indeed, Joel wouldn't sound more realistic if were playing ten rows away from you onstage. This is how you want to experience the 1978 LP that captured the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.


    Teaming again with producer Phil Ramone, Joel capitalizes on his momentum, churning out another direct-sounding affair replete with captivating melodic devices, showmanship accents, and penetrating lyrics. The singer's concision and focus is evident via the tune's lengths, with only "Until the Night" breaking the six-minute mark. Hit singles "Big Shot" and "My Life" rattle forth with an urgency and intensity that Joel had not previously demonstrated, the combination of passionate deliveries, snide overtones, and insistent grooves setting the table for what follows.


    Broadening his palette, and drawing from New York's thriving jazz club scene and the city's late-70s grit, Joel splashes Latin and jazz colors on several pieces-even employing veterans such as Dave Grusin and Freddie Hubbard to contribute along with a cast that includes a team of background vocalists and horn players. Everything is tastefully appointed, and yet the vocalist's trademark Broadway gaze and knack for the grand gesture coincide with the straight-ahead swagger.


    52nd Street is one of the main reasons why Joel has always been championed for consistency. Everything here, from the production to the stand-up songs, helped redefine mainstream pop-rock. More than three decades later, it's finally available in fidelity that rivals that of those Columbia Records' master tapes produced right on 52nd Street. Mobile Fidelity takes you there and Joel sweeps you away.

    52nd Street

    After the massive success of The Stranger, Joel hit back with 52nd Street (1978) - further building on his unique sound and songwriting formula that brought him to the top of the charts. Working again with producer Phil Ramone, Billy jazzed up his act and even gets some Steely Dan influences in there on songs like "Zanzibar". Ramone's slick producing style also fits the melodrama and uplifting effect of Joels music, derived from Broadway theater. Always a craftsman in his own right, the melodies Billy churned out on 52nd Street remain some of the best he ever wrote.

    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
    Spring Harbor.


    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

    Mastered Impeccably By Joe "Philly Soul" Reagoso From The Original ATCO Records Tapes.


    Featuring The Rare Appearances Of This Christmas And You Were Meant For Me On Vinyl.


    Featuring Chart Topping Duets With Roberta Flack


    Donny Hathaway will be forever known as one of the leading voices of the
    70's soul renaissance and truly one of the more championed songwriters during his
    short lifetime. Thanks to today's respect and care given to his music by a whole new
    generation of musicians and fans, Donny Hathaway forever reigns as one of soul's
    pioneers. Much like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, and other superstars before him,
    Donny had the necessary ingredients of a stellar voice/musicianship and songwriting
    acumen which successfully reached across all gospel, soul, rock and pop genres


    Donny Hathaway created some of the greatest sides ever for ATCO, where he
    spent his time on earth creating some of the most masterful and beautiful soul music
    ever waxed.


    In 1978, Donny was honored with his first greatest hits collection simply titled
    The Best of Donny Hathaway. This stunning array of his most memorable hit singles
    and stellar album staples, most of them featuring Joel Dorn, Billy Cobham, Arif Mardin,
    Jerry Wexler, Eric Gale, Bernard Purdie, King Curtis, Doc Gibbs and Cornell Dupree,
    continues to illustrate how important a force he was then and still is today, over four
    decades since!


    The Best of Donny Hathaway features a heavy menu of his finest moments like
    the funk infused The Ghetto, the definitive balladry of Leon Russell's A Song For You,
    and of course his duet chart topper with Roberta Flack Where Is The Love, which truly
    opened up a worldwide audience to this sorely missed genius.


    Even more classics abound as you'll hear the only vinyl release versions of
    his beautiful last top charting r&b ballad You Were Meant For Me and his standard
    holiday gem This Christmas. The fine LP also includes one of the more poignant songs
    of our time Someday We'll All Be Free which is truly a milestone song for this artist.
    This 1978 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 Donny Hathaway. 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. We have also included the original artwork
    elements by Sandi Young, the classic illustration of Donny Hathaway by Norman
    Green, as well as the original back cover studio session information not seen in LP
    cover form in years!

    pioneering soul albums from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Solomon Burke, Wilson
    Pickett and others, we feel this stunning Donny Hathaway 180 Gram Audiophile

    Still Rock and Roll to Him: Joel Toughens Up and Increases the Animosity, Sarcasm, Confidence, and Rock on 1980 Set


    Accessible and Angry: Phil Ramone's Stalwart Production Bristles With Boldness, Raucousness, and Directness on Definitive Mobile Fidelity Reissue


    Chart-Topper Certified Seven-Times Platinum: Includes "You May Be Right" "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," "Don't Ask Me Why"


    Elvis Costello long had a reputation for being the "angry young man." With apologies to the former Declan McManus, he had nothing on Billy Joel's Glass Houses. Fed up with inexcusable critical backlash and believing he'd still not been regarded as a serious artist, Joel ratcheted up the angst on the 1980 set that, oh, by the way, happened to sell another seven-million-plus copies and top the Billboard charts. Revenge is sweet.


    An integral part of Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, Glass Houses is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI. Honing in on producer Phil Ramone's radio-tailored albeit looser, straightforward production, this edition opens up the previously veiled soundstages, spotlights the clean yet raucous arrangements, and decongests the imaging so that every note comes to the fore. Thanks to the extra-wide grooves and meticulous remastering, Joel's urgency and temperament have never sounded so vibrant.


    In addition to firing shots at detractors, Joel further solidifies his reputation as a pop maestro on the hit "Don't Ask Me Why" and mellow classic "C'etait Toi (You Were the One)," each replete with sparkling structures and shimmering melodies. Throughout, he dials down the grand gestures, focusing more on an attitude and directness. At the time, Joel was conscious of the punk movement, and seems inspired to follow that genre's preference for simplicity, frankness, and irritability. The album's legendary artwork-the singer preparing to toss a brick through the windows of his house-is a metaphor for Joel shattering his image as a cocktail-lounge pop crooner.


    Such changes are evident in the now-signature "You May Be Right," a hard-rocking and scathing rebuttal to a romantic partner on which Joel embraces the identity of a tough-skinned madman that won't stop at anything. He inhabits the role with convincing theatrics, his voice mixing pushiness, smugness, self-evident humor, and cool that fits the resistive tone of the record's songs. Glass Houses is Joel's megaphone for stubborn independence, dogged assertiveness, and blustery confidence.


    It's also an announcement of artistic intent, a statement that's simultaneously catchy and barbed, well-crafted and rowdy. And it succeeds on all levels, bringing to commercial pop-rock a brashness and grit often absent from fare that sticks in your head for days. Joel would never be seen the same way again.

    Turnstiles

    By 1976, Billy Joel had proven his merit as an auteur of California-based singer-songwriter pop-rock. On Turnstiles, the legend focuses his attention on more ambitious matters: Making an album whose scope and range dwarf that of his previous work, and shot his star into the stratosphere. Encompassing everything from urgent rock to soft pop and saloon fare, Turnstiles is a classic of major proportions.



    Mobile Fidelity has gone back to the original master tapes to present Joels encompassing music the way it was always intended to be experienced: Intimate, detailed, expressive, warm. The records widescreen sonics are at last properly cinematic, flush with colors, textures, and atmosphere.



    Progressing away from sensitivity, Joel casts his eye towards broader horizons. For him, that meant moving from the West Coast back to his native New York and embracing the citys doo-wop, Broadway, and R&B heritage. Joels diversity comes through in a spectacle of memorable tunes, including the infectious All You Wanna Do Is Dance, acerbic Angry Young Man, and gorgeous Ive Loved These Days.



    Still, no song better illustrates the allureand breadthof Turnstiles more than Say Goodbye to Hollywood, bathed in the sort of fabulous Phil Spector sound, huge drum echoes, and Brill Building orchestral sweep that Joel grew up on. Similarly, the sprawling ballad New York State of Mind clearly states the singers vision and mood. On the definitive track, Joel luxuriates in full string accompaniment and soulful saxophone playing that gives the pop standard its foundation. Not for nothing did Joel insist on keeping his touring band for the album, a decision that resulted in the firing of the records original producer.



    Supported by talents such as arranger Kenny Ascher, guitarist James Herb Smith, and percussionist Mingo Lewis, Joel succeeds in wrapping his head around a rich swath of American pop music, stopping by way of New Orleans, Kansas City, Memphis, Chicago, and other cities on his way from California back to the Garden State. While lacking the fame of the subsequent The Stranger and 52nd Street, Turnstiles is in every way their equal.



    Finally, the delicate nuances of Joels phrasing, pregnant pauses, and introspective emotion can be experienced in three-dimensional fidelity. In addition, the spectrum of the orchestras power and finesse, ravishing poignancy of the lyrics, and bittersweet qualities of the melodies bloom with unforced immediacy. The previous veiled sonic character and stultifying dryness have been corrected, presenting Joel and his crack band with illuminating precision and feeling.



    Turnstiles has never sounded betterand it never will.

    True Colors

    A Vocal Tour de Force: 1986 Sophomore Effort Stacked With Big-Name Guests and Ambitious Arrangements


    Grammy-Nominated Double-Platinum Set Includes Internationally Recognized Title Track Plus Top 10 Singles "What's Going On" and "Change of Heart"


    Illuminative Sonics: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Cyndi Lauper could've easily played up the independent wild-child pop persona she established on her breakthrough debut until the trend faded. Instead, on her superb sophomore effort, the charismatic artist opts for a more mature and creatively ambitious program, inviting big-name guests and pursuing deeper instrumental textures on a set that goes far beyond the well-known title track. True Colors is a vocal tour de force, an expressive statement on which Lauper showcases singing steeped in emotion, phrasing, and earnestness.


    Bringing Lauper's rich timbre to the fore, and mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system, this RTI-pressed LP presents the 1986 album in the finest fidelity it's ever enjoyed. Period touches such as synthesized drumbeats and layered keyboards no longer sound blatantly artificial or canned. Instruments now possess a warmer, fuller roundness that fleshes out their role in the compositions. And Lauper's vocals-at times balladic, soaring, plaintive, stylish, and celebratory-occupy a defined place in the mix, anchoring songs etched with tonal expressiveness and diverse arrangements.


    An all-star cast aids Lauper in shaping what remains a colossally underrated record. Billy Joel (vocals), Adrian Belew (guitar), the Bangles (vocals), Aimee Mann (vocals), Nile Rodgers (guitar), and Rick Derringer (guitar) are among the guests. So is Pee Wee Herman, whose telephone operator role at the conclusion of "911" speaks to the fact that Lauper didn't abandon her whimsical nature even as she pressed forward. Cajun accents, soulful motifs ("What's Going On"), and joyous covers of traditional fare ("Iko Iko") keep the album pleasantly varied and accessibly offbeat.


    Of course, Lauper also turns in, with "True Colors," what's arguably her career-defining moment, the chart-topping single radiating with gorgeous elegance and graceful phrasing that forced audiences to regard the performer in a different light. For her boldness, Lauper was rewarded with two Grammy nominations and a song that has since been covered by artists such as Phil Collins and appeared as the theme for the 1988 Olympic Games and 2003 Rugby World Cup.


    Don't miss this chance to hear True Colors in the three-dimensional detail one gets from a high-definition television picture.

    Common Bond

    Long time Billy Joel bandmate Mark Rivera releases his debut album Common Bond in 2014. The album's title is a nod to staying true to your roots and the ties that bind. Mark has worked with Billy Joel for over 30 years and with Ringo Starr for 18 years and both artists make guest appearances on Common Bond. Mark's "band leaders" couldn't be more enthusiastic.


    "I LOVE 'Common Bond.' It really rocks in a good old way - like we did back in the day. Your voice sounds great and the band kicks ass. I crank it up in the car," Billy said from backstage at Madison Square Garden.


    Backstage on the All-Starr Band's Summer Tour, Ringo said in his trademark wit, "I'm only here to promote Mark Rivera .Mr. Showbiz himself!!"


    Mark and producer Jimmy Bralower have assembled a stellar group of musicians to play on Common Bond.

    The Nylon Curtain

    1982's The Nylon Curtain was a tremendous and resounding success for Billy Joel. Boasting a ton of hit singles and huge radio activity for the better part of the year, this legendary artist truly hit his stride with this amazing release.


    With stunning hits like Allentown and Pressure maneuvering this fine album to the top of the charts, The Nylon Curtain showed the highly creative mind of Billy Joel, as the orchestrations, the melodies and the lyrical setting made this one of his most important recordings of his four decade career. Incredible tracks filled this Phil Ramone produced album such as the the AOR classic Goodnight Saigon, his Christmas fan favorite She's Right On Time, as well as the melancholy closer Where's The Orchestra with its surprise ending.


    As part of the extensive Billy Joel 180g Audiophile Series on Friday Music, both Joe Reagoso of Friday Music and Kevin Gray from AcousTech have gone back to the original Columbia Records analog tapes and have mastered another winning audiophile release. Pressed at RTI in conjunction with Sony Music, The Nylon Curtain just fills the room with all the excitement and sonic delivery you would expect from this legendary artist.

    Infectious Doo-Wop, Carefree Soul, Harmonious Pop a Testament to Music of Joel's Childhood


    Album Sounded Mediocre For the Longest Time-No Longer: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Allows You to Hear This Pleasing Set With Fresh Ears


    Another Joel Blockbuster: Seven-Times Platinum 1983 Affair Includes "Uptown Girl," "For the Longest Time," "An Innocent Man," "Tell Her About It"


    After making The Nylon Curtain, Billy Joel felt the need to exhale and get back to the carefree music of his childhood. He also met supermodel Christie Brinkley, who brought serious degrees of levity and romance to his world. In love, relaxed, and out to have fun, the singer crafted An Innocent Man, arguably the most easygoing and pleasing album of his career. Featuring four Top 40 pop singles and the same number of Top 5 Adult Contemporary hits to grace the Billboard charts, the record remains a commercial staple.


    An essential title in Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, An Innocent Man is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI. The resulting presentation effortlessly outshines that heard on all previous editions of this 1983 set. Particularly, the effervescent harmonies now possess an airiness and extension that lends to realistic tonal decay. Instruments are balanced and placed on a wider, deeper soundstage, contributing improved to improved imaging and spaciousness. Joel's voice, too, comes across with tremendous clarity, presence, and body. These songs have never sounded so contagious.


    Per usual, Joel proves a melodic jukebox. The vocalist's grasp on structure, hooks, and delivery help make this batch of songs among his most beloved, easy to hum, and impossible to ignore. Much of the appeal resides in Joel's understanding of the early rock and roll, doo-wop, and soul that he grew up hearing in New York, and the manners in which the popular songwriters favored simplicity over complexity, good-natured vibes over seriousness, and romantic charm over introspective sadness.


    Whether floating on a cloud on the giddy "Uptown Girl" (check out his falsetto), doubling as both the lead and background vocalist on the reminiscent-themed "The Longest Time," or tapping gospel undercurrents on the tribute "Keeping the Faith," Joel revels in 50s and 60s pop constructs, turning out amiable refrains and unforgettable moods. Love perfumes the air, and Joel can't get enough, and it's a feeling he passes on to his listeners.


    As the calm before stormier periods in his life, and a timeless connection to America's finest pop music traditions, An Innocent Man is indeed innocent-a guiltless pleasure that keeps on giving.

    My Generation (50th Anniversary / Super Deluxe)


    Limited Edition 50th Anniversary 3LP-Set


    Includes The Original Mono Album


    Features Mono Bonus Tracks & 11 Of Pete Townshend's Demos From Before The Album's Original Release


    In the half century since its release The Who's debut album MY GENERATION has lost none of it's raw visceral power and still stands as the ultimate musical declaration of teenage rebellion. The title track alone has been covered innumerable times by the likes of Oasis, Green Day, Patti Smith, Billy Joel, Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden amongst many more.


    Back in 1965 the band were considered to be so dangerous that the tailors tasked with turning a Union Jack into a pop art mod jacket for the cover feared that they would be jailed for desecration of the nation's flag.


    The Who's surly demeanor that day in 1965 at London's Surrey Docks and the brazen appropriation of the symbol of state is the best advert possible for MY GENERATION It's an album that sounds like it looks: terse, confrontational and full of youthful angst and energy.


    Brunswick Records first issued MY GENERATION in the UK in December 1965, and later in the US, under the title THE WHO SINGS MY GENERATION, in April 1966. It was produced by Shel Talmy who shot to fame with his work with The Kinks, a group that the teenage Pete Townshend admired greatly.


    During a break in touring in 2015 Pete Townshend discovered tapes in his audio archive featuring previously unheard demos for the album which also included three totally unreleased songs that the other members of The Who hadn't ever even heard, 'The Girls I Could Have Had', 'As Children We Grew'and 'My Own Love'.

    'This is a true story...'


    Not. Fargo is a fantastic dark comedy-crime drama television series created and written by Noah Hawley and inspired by Joel & Ethan Coen's feature of the same title from 1996. Both Coen brothers serve as executive producers on the series. The show stars Martin Freeman (The Hobbit trilogy), Billy Bob Thornton, Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad) and more.


    The soundtrack features selections from the show's original music composed by Jeff Russo (Power, Necessary Roughness, About Cherry). Its score is well done, with different motifs or instruments assigned to different characters. For Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman's character) it's that nearly-whimsical main theme. For the drifter Lorne Malvo (Thornton's character) it's sleigh bell chimes that represent his animalistic nature coming out.

    So Long, Astoria (Awaiting Repress)

    With a handful of indie releases and a few hectic years of touring under their belts, this release marks the Ataris big-label bow. And if the concept uniting it is an ode to the power of memory--a conceit attributed to Richard Hell, but one that ironically might as well have originated with the likes of Billy Joel--Kris Roe and company blitz their way through it with kinetic power and hooks to spare. But therein lies the rub: Fans will find this an album rife with positive energy, bright, well-constructed songs, and upbeat deliveries (if sometimes in service of awkward intellectual pretensions like Unopened Letter to the World's parallels between Kurt Cobain and no less than Emily Dickinson); cynics may hear at as further evidence that punk and alternative rock have been co-opted in service of formulas as well-honed--and rigid--as anything the dreaded Corp Rock '80s ever yielded. Still, if play-it-to-the-back-rows, unabashed power-pop is what the Ataris were after here, they've delivered it with nigh perfection, right down to a slick, pumped up cover of Don Henley's classic-rock warhorse The Boys of Summer. --Jerry McCulley
