    Kiss

    Kiss' 1974 self-titled debut is one of hard rock's all-time classic studio recordings. Kiss is chock full of their best and most renowned compositions, containing elements of Rolling Stones/New York Dolls party-hearty rock & roll, Beatles tunefulness, and Sabbath/Zep heavy metal, and wisely recorded primal and raw by producers Richie Wise and Kenny Kerner (of Gladys Knight fame). Main songwriters Stanley and Simmons each had a knack for coming up with killer melodies and riffs, as evidenced by Nothin' to Lose and Deuce (by Simmons), Firehouse and Black Diamond (by Stanley), as well as Strutter and 100,000 Years (collaborations by the two). Also included is the Ace Frehley alcohol anthem Cold Gin, Let Me Know (a song that Stanley played for Simmons upon their very first meeting, then titled Sunday Driver), and one of Kiss' few instrumentals: the groovy Love Theme from Kiss (penned by the entire band). The only weak track is a tacky cover of the 1959 Bobby Rydell hit Kissin' Time, which was added to subsequent pressings of the album to tie in with a Kissing Contest promotion the band was involved in at the time. Along with 1976's Destroyer, Kiss' self-titled debut is their finest studio album, and has only improved over the years.

    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is the fifth studio album by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath, originally released in December 1973. It was produced by the band and Tom Allom and recorded at Morgan Studios in London in September 1973.
    For the first time in their career, the band began to receive favourable reviews in the mainstream press, with Rolling Stone calling the album an extraordinarily gripping affair, and nothing less than a complete success. Later reviewers such as AllMusic's Eduardo Rivadavia cite the album as a masterpiece, essential to any heavy metal collection, while also displaying a newfound sense of finesse and maturity. The album marked the band's fifth consecutive platinum selling album in the United States.

    Never Say Die!

    Never Say Die! is the eighth studio album by British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, released in September 1978. It was the final Black Sabbath studio album to feature vocalist Ozzy Osbourne prior to his departure from the band in 1979.


    At the time of the recording of Never Say Die! the members of Black Sabbath were all heavily involved in drug and alcohol abuse. Prior to the recording of the album, vocalist Osbourne quit the band and was briefly replaced by former Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac vocalist Dave Walker. Some songs were written with Walker, and the new group even performed an early version of Junior's Eyes with different lyrics on the BBC programme, Look Hear. Osbourne eventually rejoined the band, refusing to sing any of the songs written with Walker. These particular songs were rewritten, including Junior's Eyes, rewritten to be about the then-recent death of Osbourne's father.


    We had a few internal problems, Osbourne admitted to Sounds. My father was dying, so that put us out for over three months with the funeral and everything. I left the band for three months before we got back together to record it.
    The album was recorded at Sounds Interchange Studios in Toronto. We went to Toronto to record it, and that's when the problems started said Tony Iommi. Why Toronto? Because of the tax, really. The studio was booked through brochures because people thought it might be a good one. We got there and it had a dead sound - totally wrong. We couldn't get a real live sound. So what we had to do was rip the carpet up and try to make it as live as we could. They were okay about it, but it took time to get it exactly right. There were no other studios available. Closing track Swinging The Chain features lead vocals from drummer Bill Ward, necessitated by Osbourne's frequent absences from the studio and inability to perform due to substance abuse.


    It's a combination of what we've all been through in the last ten years, said Osbourne. It's a very varied album. Like, we started out playing in blues clubs, because British blues - like John Mayall and early Fleetwood Mac - was the thing at the time. We were into a twelve-bar trip and early Ten Years After-style stuff. So it's part of that sort of trip. Then there's the heavy thing and the rock thing. It's not just steamhammer headbanging stuff all the way through We got rid of all our inner frustrations: what each of us individually wanted to put down over the years but couldn't because of the pressures of work. So we put a lot of painstaking hours into developing this album.

It was recorded in the midst of litigation with their former manager Patrick Meehan and the stress that resulted from the band's ongoing legal woes infiltrated the recording process, inspiring the album's title.

    Closer To Home

    Produced by Terry Knight, Closer To Home is Grand Funk Railroad's third studio album, and was released in 1970. The album reached Gold record status the same year, making it the group's third Gold record in one year. The album's inside artwork shows a live photo of the band performing at Madison Square Garden in February 1970.


    Closer To Home was the record that really broke them through to the commercially successful level of Metal masters such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Rather than rushing headlong into their typical hard, heavy, and overamplified approach, Grand Funk Railroad began expanding their production values.


    Most evident is the inclusion of strings, the acoustic opening on the disc's leadoff cut, Sins a Good Man's Brother, as well as the comparatively mellow Mean Mistreater. But the boys had far from gone soft. The majority of Closer To Home is filled with the same straight-ahead rock & roll that had composed their previous efforts.

The release was initially titled Snowblind in reference to the many tracks centered around drug use which was running rampant in the band at the time of the recording. Vol. 4 also found the band expanding upon their trademark sound with the tracks Wheels of Confusion, Tomorrow's Dream and Changes, while still offering up classic Sabbath fair like the ultra-heavy Supernaut.

    Black Mountain (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

    Limited Edition Grey Vinyl


    It's only a clichÉ because it's true, but the greatest records are timeless. Black Mountain's self-titled debut
    album is just such a record. It is a new classic rock, with reference points arcane and clear, its sound fresh,
    unfamiliar and irresistible. The work of a small collective of musicians operating from Vancouver, Canada,
    far from any industry buzz but firmly in the eye of their own storm of creativity, Black Mountain's debut
    album was, of course, a beginning, but it also marked an ending.


    Begun as the fourth album for Jerk With A Bomb, the 4-track bedroom project turned non-rock band led
    by Stephen McBean that preceded Black Mountain, the songs grew from skeletal sessions cut by McBean
    and Josh Wells and honed on the road in empty North American clubs along with Amber Webber. "We'd lay
    down the bed tracks, the guitars and drums," remembers McBean. "Matt [Camirand, bass] joined, and we
    changed the band name after a dream of how life could be different in the B section between Black Flag and
    Black Sabbath. Josh's roommate Jeremy [Schmidt, keys] was lurking about. We asked him if he wanted to
    add some synth bleeps or whatever. He came back with all these orchestrated keyboard parts, and we said,
    'Oh, you should probably join the band now.'"


    They cut the album at the Hive and their jam space in Vancouver, recording in "a big cement room with a
    tall ceiling, nice boomy acoustics, lots of natural reverb, on an 8-track reel-to-reel tape recorder." During the
    sessions, these elemental first tracks found their true shape: wry & giddy, hypnotic & gracefully heavy, the
    dark and powerful blues, and mysterious chugging murk.


    The album's initial success saw the band take to the road, leaving their Vancouver enclave for stages across
    the world. "It felt like there was a real explosion of excitement at shows," remembers McBean. "We wouldn't
    write setlists, we'd just feel the energy in the room and call things out, jamming on songs like 'No Hits' and
    'Druganaut.' It was a good time for live rock'n'roll: DJ booths were being transformed back to drum risers,
    people were digging 20 minute heady jams and there were bands like Comets On Fire and Oneida out there
    who we felt kinship with. I was into Faust and Amon Duul but had no idea of the scene of modern bands
    doing that stuff. And then we met those bands, and it was cool. And then we went on tour with
    Coldplay and the adventures continued.


    Their jaunt across the world as guests of perhaps the biggest band in the world is a tale for another time,
    perhaps: the start of Black Mountain's next chapter, and all that followed. For now, savor the compact,
    spacey brilliance of that cosmic, heavy and subtle debut album, expanded now with a raft of delicious bonus
    tracks scavenged from the Black Mountain Army archives.

    13

    Black Sabbath's new studio album, one of the most anticipated metal releases of the year, already has a title. It will be called 13, so it is only fitting that the heavy metal band announced it today, on January 13th. We know now that it will be released this June (the exact date will be revealed later). The band also revealed what everyone wanted to know: who was the drummer that joined the recording sessions for the new album.


    The original Black Sabbath line-up, Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar) and Geezer Butler (bass), recorded the album primarily in Los Angeles and were joined at the sessions by drummer Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine fame.


    13 was produced by Rick Rubin and the album will be released on Vertigo (worldwide) and Vertigo/Republic in the US. The new studio album also marks the band's return to Vertigo, their original label, apart from being the group's first studio album together since 1978s Never Say Die.

    Burn

    For 1973s Burn, Deep Purple founders Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice and Jon Lord recruited the amazing vocal talents of rising new comer David Coverdale (Whitesnake and Coverdale/Page) and power bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Trapeze/Black Sabbath/Hughes Turner Project/Black Country Communion) for what turned out to be one of their best known and respected albums in their huge catalog.



    Commonly referred to Purple fans as the Mark III line up, this dream team to this day is often considered one of the finest hard rock outfits of all time. The term arena act began with bands like Deep Purple in the '60s and '70s, and these masters of the game have carried the torch ever since!



    Filled with heavy metal anthems like the title track Burn, Might Just Take Your Life, Mistreated and the hard rockin You Fool No One, Deep Purples Burn is still revered as one of the finest hard rock/metal albums of our time, as it truly shines in this audiophile vinyl domain.



    Impeccably mastered from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Deep Purple enthusiast/reissue producer Joe Reagoso, this limited edition masterpiece continues the extensive Deep Purple 180 Gram Audiophile Series here at Friday Music.



    Friday Music has also included the original candle cover artwork as you remember it from the first pressings issued over three decades ago, housed in a nice poly bag, as well as a poly lined record sleeve for the vinyl.

    The Black Sabbath Covers

    When Jason Molina took on another artist's song, he willed his own universe into it, his own
    personal and artistic mythology. Be it Conway Twitty or Townes Van Zandt, their blues were
    infused with Molina's own entrancing blues. This pair of newly discovered, home-recorded
    Black Sabbath covers is no different. Molina, a through-and-through fan of metal (seek out his
    high school metal band the Spineriders' album if you haven't yet) peels back the sinister and
    stoned elements of Sabbath, zeroing in on the loneliness and brooding.


    He takes "Solitude,"
    from 1971's unfuckwithable Master of Reality - and one of Sabbath's more mystical, near-proggy
    songs - and doubles down on the title. Molina extracts Ozzy Osbourne's gorgeously
    cooed vocal performance and transforms it into a high and lonesome sound, a desert campfire
    howler. And on his cover of "Snowblind, from 1972's Vol. 4, it becomes obvious what a guitar
    hero Sabbath's Tony Iommi was for Molina. Molina seemed to pull from Iommi's odd, simple
    fingerings and tunings throughout his catalogue: from his first album (known informally as "the
    black album") to Magnolia Electric Co.'s Josephine. Molina's brief acoustic cover dials back the
    bombast, but you can surely connect "Snowblind"'s chord progressions with Molina's own on
    the black album and Axxess & Ace.


    Recorded in the midwest in the late '90s, during Molina's
    multi-season run of batting 1.000, these two intimate songs are a bittersweet artifact of one of
    the Rust Belt's titan songwriters.


    Note: Do not attempt to play Side B of this 7" release. Side B is a gorgeous etching of a
    black ram by artist Will Schaff. If you do attempt to play the etching on Side B it will sound
    absolutely awful.

    Warfaring Strangers - Darkscorch Canticles

    With Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles, the impacts of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath on US shores and heartlands is revealed as a bludgeoning previously undescribed. In this collection, medieval Bonham thunk and febrile Iommi guitar leads crowd out the bluesy Americana that foregrounded those bands, replacing hippie pastoralism with mythology, armored conflict, sorcery, and doom. From legions of occult-obsessive 1970s bonehead teens, we summoned a horde of 16 bands, cloaked in eons of tortured obscurity, whose sole release amounts to a blistering chapter ripped free of rock's lumbering mythos.


    This music hails from an occluded realm, somewhere just beyond the pot-addled minds of its creators. Lyrically, the Darkscorch Canticles trifle with themes most grave: crippling fear, pagan hostility, paranoia, power addiction-even necromancy. Satan's name is openly invoked, alongside Sauron's. These worried, warlike Canticles occupy a miniscule niche in the American underground of self-released rock, but their appeal is more broad today than in any previous era.

    Secret Treaties (Speakers Corner)

    Back in the days of hard rock and surrounded by fierce competitors with such great names as the Doors, Black Sabbath and the Rolling Stones, a band had to attract attention with far more than histrionic pathos, biker boogie, an adept lead guitarist and a sharp-tongued singer. The band Blue Öyster Cult, founded on Long Island in 1971, possessed all this and much more, relating short scenarios in their lyrics, which conjured up people's imagination. Rolling Stone magazine enthused that it was »like listenin' to Hitchcock and Kubrick swap stories about their wet dreams«, and that the group »mix aesthetics and ass-kicking rock to such good advantage«.



    In their third studio album Secret Treaties, BÖC reached the pinnacle of their musical evolution with such memorable songs as Career Of Evil, Subhuman and Astronomy. The lyrics have literary value but are certainly not intended for sensitive souls - the phrases are direct and intentionally drily articulated. The music is as blatant and extroverted as the lyrics: the guitar sound is steely and straightforward, occasionally padded out with a see-sawing Hammond groove, and topped again and again by wonderfully rough string solos that speak the language of hard, merciless and full-bodied rock.



    Musicians:



    • Eric Bloom (guitar, keyboards, vocal)

    • Allen Lanier (keyboards, guitar, synthesizer)

    • Donald 'Buck Dharma' Roeser (guitar, vocal)

    • Joe Bouchard (bass, vocal)

    • Albert Bouchard (drums, vocal)



    Recording: 1974 by Tim Geelan and Jerry Smith

    Production: Murray Krugman and Sandy Pearlman




    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.
