    Blue & Lonesome

    Pressed On Two 180 Gram LPs And Housed In A Gatefold Sleeve


    "This album is manifest testament to the purity of their love for making music, and the blues is, for the Stones, the fountainhead of everything they do."


    -Don Was, Co-Producer of 'Blue & Lonesome'


    The Rolling Stones are set to release 'Blue & Lonesome', their first studio album in over a decade. Recorded in just three days in London, England, 'Blue & Lonesome' takes the band back to their roots and the passion for blues music which has always been at the heart and soul of The Rolling Stones.


    Their approach to the album was that it should be spontaneous and played live in the studio without overdubs. The band - Mick Jagger (vocals & harp), Keith Richards (guitar), Charlie Watts (drums), and Ronnie Wood (guitar) were joined by their long time touring sidemen Darryl Jones (bass), Chuck Leavell (keyboards) and Matt Clifford (keyboards) and, for two of the twelve tracks, by old friend Eric Clapton, who happened to be in the next studio making his own album.


    'Blue & Lonesome' sees the Rolling Stones tipping their hats to their early days as a blues band when they played the music of Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Eddie Taylor, Little Walter and Howlin' Wolf - artists whose songs are featured on this album.

    Almost Blue

    Costellos Soulful Country & Western Covers Album Tackles Standard Tunes by George Jones, Hank Williams, Gram Parsons, and More


    Expertly Played 1981 Set Marks the Second of the Encyclopedic Pop Musicians Many Forays Into Multiple Styles


    Half-Speed Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Knockout Sonics Present Costellos Close-Up Vocals, Steve Nieves Piano, and the Pedal-Steel Guitars in Great Relief


    Elvis Costello was so enamored with American country music when he finally discovered it, he was motivated to record Almost Blue. Renowned as one of the most passionate and enthusiastic covers albums ever made, the 12-song set finds the iconic singer/songwriter interpreting standards by the likes of Hank Williams, Gram Parsons, George Jones, Merle Haggard, and other legends. Replete with heartbreak, lonesomeness, boozing, cheating, and dreaming, its laden with country and westerns customary themes and dignified by one of the finest performances of Costello and the Attractions peerless career.


    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited edition 180g LP opens up the soundstages, clears previously muddled midrange frequencies, and places the imaging of the various country-tuned instruments into clear focus. For the first time, listeners can hear just how much of himself Costello invests in the vocal performances, while the Attractions dont miss a beat, particularly pianist Steve Nieve and guest musician John McFee. Moreover, the strings (when employed) take on new life, and the records cover art, a take-off on Kenny Burrells Midnight Blue, is faithfully reproduced.


    At the time of the albums recording in 1981, Costello was admittedly emotionally shattered. The title of the effort isnt merely coincidental. Feeling dejected and disenchanted, the vocalist had been put through the ringer: His pop stardom yielded one incredible record after another, but Costellos marriage was in tatters, his behavior deplorable, and his reputation tarnished by a famous drunken incident that shamed him for decades. In addition, he chose to follow his string of original LPs up with the soul- and R&B-minded Get Happy, a creative masterwork that nonetheless caused some of his mainstream fans to believe hed abandon his hit-making pedigree.


    So he did what any self-respecting, astute musician would want to do: Cut a country and western record steeped in heartbreak, fragility, sadness, despair, and beer-glass-raising spirit. Largely informed by the stacks of country LPs he bought in used shops during U.S. tours, and in the ideal frame of mind, Costello sought out not to make standards such as Sweet Dreams, Too Far Gone, Honey Hush, and Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down his own but to put a unique spin on the darkness, surprise, soulfulness, foreboding, and authenticity that they contain within.


    With each note, Costello succeeds and exceeds expectations, turning in versions that sound both old and new. Such timelessness, and the confluence of contemporary and traditional, distinguishes Almost Blue from nearly every other country tribute album made by pop/rock artists before and since. Costello and the Attractions embody the deep sentiments attached to these weeping ballads, tear-jerking lullabies, honky-tonk rave-ups, and playful shuffles in an incredibly convincing manner. Producer George Sherrill, famous for working with the likes of Tammy Wynette, George Jones, and Marty Robbins, and brought on board specifically for the project, frames the music with the perfect blend of grit and professionalism.

    The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone (Awaiting Repress)

    Lee Ann Womack, one of the most distinctive and decorated vocalists in modern music, will make her debut for ATO Records with the release of 'The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone,' an album that mixes the country, soul, gospel and blues of her native East Texas, into an audacious, sharp-edged work of art. Produced by Womack's husband and fellow Texan Frank Liddell (fresh off a 2017 ACM Album of the Year win for Miranda Lambert's 'The Weight of These Wings'), and featuring songs mostly co-written by Womack, 'The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone,' is her most personal album to date, marking the culmination of a journey that began with her 2005 CMA Album of the Year 'There's More Where That Came From' toward an authentic American music that celebrates her roots and adds to the canon.


    'The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone' features fourteen new songs, recorded with Womack's core band of top shelf musicians including bassist Glenn Worf, songwriters and guitarists Wright, Payne and Ethan Ballinger, and drummer Jerry Roe. The album was mostly recorded at the legendary SugarHill Studios in Houston, TX. Formerly known as Gold Star and open since 1941, SugarHill is one of the oldest continuously run studios in the country and home to seminal early recordings by many artists who had a formative influence on Womack, including George Jones, Willie Nelson and Lightnin' Hopkins. Among the album's three cover songs, Womack recorded a haunting version of George Jones' Take the Devil Out of Me standing on the same gold star linoleum floor where he cut the 1959 original.


    I wanted to get out of Nashville, and tap the deep music and vibe of East Texas, says Womack. I wanted to make sure this record had a lot of soul in it, because real country music has soul. I wanted to remind people of that.


    'The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone' follows Womack's acclaimed 2014 album 'The Way I'm Livin',' which SPIN deemed the best of her career to date. Highlights from that career include performances for presidents and other world leaders, duets partners ranging from George Strait to John Legend, a Grammy, five Academy of Country Music awards, and six Country Music Association awards including Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and two Singles of the Year.

    Foghat is truly a worldwide gift to rock music and boogie band enthusiasts everywhere. The nucleus of the band (Dave Peverett, Roger Earl, Tone Stevens) was originally from the British blues powerhouse Savoy Brown, and left to form their own trailblazing band in 1972, and rock music and their millions of fans have never been the same since.


    In 1978, Foghat was now enjoying the benefits of superstardom after years on the road and having consistently successful radio and chart success. Stone Blue was another huge hit for the band and brought them even further success thanks to multiple amount of smash tracks and stellar blues interpretations that have been considered some of their finest material ever.


    Kicking things off with the hard-rockin' Stone Blue, this slide guitar champion truly takes the listener into a classic rock journey complete with all the great twists and turns you would expect from this superstar outfit.


    Check out the stunning blues interpretations of Bo Diddley's classic Chevrolet, the perfect reading of Elmore James' It Hurts Me Too, and of course, the Foghat smash version of Robert Johnson's Sweet Home Chicago.


    Lonesome Dave Peverett continues his winning streak with a handful of newer fare with the powerful Easy Money, complete with an incredible drum workout by his old Savoy Brown bandmate Roger Earl, locking in step with the stunning lead guitar of Rod Price and the great Craig MacGregor on heavy-duty bass.


    These pioneers of the British blues/rock scene carry on with more masterful workouts on hit album tracks like Midnight Madness, High On Love and their inspiring power ballad Stay With Me, making Stone Blue the revered masterpiece that it still is today.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the gold & platinum rockers Foghat, therefore we are so excited to announce our first installment in The Foghat /Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with the 40th Anniversary Edition of their legendary masterpiece Stone Blue.


    The original Bearsville Records Lp is mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, Deep Purple) and will be manufactured for a limited time on stunning translucent blue audiophile vinyl.


    To celebrate four decades of Foghat's Stone Blue, we further enhance this limited anniversary edition with a first time gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as rare gatefold featuring photos from the band's archives, as well as new commentary from co-founder and drummer Roger Earl.

    More Primitive

    "More Primitive" finds Seattle's Lonesome Shack exploring the depths of boogie and country blues. The trio's sound is raw and immediate with finger-picked guitar lines, soulful crooning and big danceable grooves. Ben Todd's introspective lyrics take the American blues tradition to a new level, examining personal history, loss of friends, and a burning desire to get to the primitive core of life.

    Sourced From The Original Master Tapes


    Remastered And Cut At Half-Speed At Abbey Road Studios


    15x Albums Pressed On 20x Heavyweight 180-Gram Black Vinyl


    Individually Numbered, Limited Edition With Original Packaging Replications


    Whenever The Rolling Stones do anything, they do it with quality and gravitas. Having defined rock'n'roll in the 60s, The Rolling Stones entered their imperial phase in 1971 with Sticky Fingers. What followed is a run of albums that couldn't have happened at any other time, by any other band: the decadent excess of Exile On Main St, the Jamaican voodoo swamp of Goats Head Soup, the disco and punk-infused prowl of Some Girls. With each new decade, the Stones evolved while staying true to their roots, coming full circle in 2016 with Blue & Lonesome, a love letter to their first inspiration: the blues. Today, The Rolling Stones and Universal Music announce 'The Studio Albums Vinyl Collection 1971-2016', a brand new limited edition vinyl box set collection, featuring 15 albums across 20 LPs released on 15 June 2018 and available to pre-order here. View the unboxing trailer here.


    'The Studio Albums Vinyl Collection 1971-2016' presents this monumental era in rock'n'roll history in a highly bespoke, lenticular mounted, limited edition box-set housing the 15 studio albums from Sticky Fingers through to Blue & Lonesome in faithful and intricate original packaging replications. Every album has been lovingly remastered and cut at revelatory half-speed at Abbey Road Studios, from vinyl specific original tape transfers designed to get the very best possibly sound from the format. Each album is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram black vinyl and includes a download card for HD digital redemption of the catalogue and includes a numbered certificate of authentication.


    Cut at half speed, these are among the highest quality vinyl pressings that these classic Rolling Stones albums will have ever received. Half speed mastering and pressed to a very high standard ensures top notch sound quality for the listener.


    Special care has been taken to create packaging to the same high standards, with detailed artwork reproduction for each album including 'Some Girls', which comes housed in the replica design including 20 cut-outs on the cover, while the sleeve of 'Sticky Fingers' is presented as Andy Warhol's original design, complete with a working zip with a hidden image underneath and 'Exile On Main Street' comes with a set of 12 original postcard inserts.


    ABOUT THE PROCESS


    Abbey Road Studios' engineers have been cutting grooves into discs since the studios first opened in 1931. In 2013, award-winning engineer Miles Showell joined their existing mastering team, bringing a wealth of disc-cutting experience with him.


    One of the artisan techniques offered by Abbey Road Studios that results in the very highest quality sound reproduction is Half Speed Cutting. This process involves the master source being played back at precisely half its recorded speed while the cutting lathe is similarly turned at half the desired playback speed. This allows the cutting head twice the time to cut the intricate groove, allowing considerably more accuracy with important matters such as frequency extremes and micro-dynamic contrasts. The resulting cuts have excellent high frequency response (treble) and very solid and stable stereo images.


    It's not quite as simple as running everything at half rate. There is an EQ curve applied to all vinyl records and by running the lathe at half speed, all the frequencies are wrong. However, the technical staff at Abbey Road Studios have had new custom-built filters installed which allow Miles to practice half speed cutting to the full on a modified Neumann VMS-80 lathe.

    New Moon Daughter


    Reissued As Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    Singer Cassandra Wilson, who has had a rather diverse career that has ranged from the free funk of M-Base to standards à la Betty Carter, has in recent times adopted a folk-oriented style a little reminiscent of Nina Simone. On New Moon Daughter her repertoire ranges from U2 to Son House, from Hoagy Carmichael to Hank Williams (I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry); it is certainly the only album ever that contains both the Monkees' Last Train to Clarksville and Strange Fruit.

    New Heaven (Discontinued)

    New Heaven is the debut LP from Pittsburgh, PA's 1,2,3 which is comprised of the duo Nicolas Snyder and Joshua Sickels, formerly of the Takeover UK. From the shimmering synths of Lonesome Boring Summer, to the swooning strings of Wave Pool, to the sucker punch percussion of Work, to the lethargic blues licks of Just Like Heaven (Is Gone) and the restless riffs of 20,000 Blades, the striking, speaker-panning elements of New Heaven are all challenging and universally rewarding at the same time.

    It's still sobering to realize that Hank recorded just 66 songs during his lifetime, almost all of them essential. Here are those that serve as a working definition of country music, and as an admonition to artists who try to get too wordy or try to lose themselves in minor keys. Your Cheatin' Heart, HonkyTonk Blues, Cold, Cold Heart, Lovesick Blues, You Win Again, I Can't Help It, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, and the rest.

    Paired with Stax writing whiz-kids Isaac Hayes and David Porter, Thomas had her greatest chart run, beginning with the hit B-A-B-Y and continuing with Let Me Be Good to You. Both of those appear here, alongside evocative slabs of country-soul in covers of Hank Williams's I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry and Patsy Cline's I Fall to Pieces. For good measure, Thomas also tries her hand at the blues with covers of Howlin' Wolf's Little Red Rooster and Jimmy Reed's Baby What You Want Me to Do?

    First Time On Vinyl On Fat Possum Records


    Liner Notes By Robert Palmer


    This brooding lesson in the Three D's of the blues--despair, death, and desire--is a window into the melancholy soul of Hooker's art. Each of the two discs are separate sets from a '70s solo concert at New York City's Hunter College. And by the time Hooker asks How deep and how low can you git? near the performance's end, we already know. It's not merely the profound darkness of these tales--in which Hooker becomes a killer, a TB victim, an abandoned lover--but the pain with which he suffuses his pinched, red-clay voice. Then there's his guitar, constantly working idiosyncratic variations on his patented boogie; sliding and snapping out replies to the tense lyrics of Jesse James or his improvised lonesome wail Tired of Being Your Doggie. Throughout, Hooker exercises his command of tension and drama.

    A Date with Elvis is the third full-length studio album by the American garage punk band The Cramps. It was released on Big Beat Records. It was recorded in the fall of 1985 and engineered by Steve McMillan and Mark Ettel at Ocean Way Studios Hollywood, CA. The Cramps reissued the album on their own Vengeance Records in 2001 with the bonus tracks Blue Moon Baby, Georgia Lee Brown, Give Me a Woman and Get Off the Road. The album was dedicated to Ricky Nelson, who had a hit with the song Lonesome Town, which was also covered by The Cramps and is available on their first EP Gravest Hits and compilation album ...Off the Bone.

    Friends (Pure Pleasure)

    Friends is the accurate and revealing title for New York bluesman Eric Bibb's tenth album since 1997. The cuts here feature rootsy folk and blues collaborations with different 'friends' in differing small group settings. The set starts with a killer acoustic slide duet between Bibb and Guy Davis on the nugget 99 ½ Won't Do. The contrast between Davis' sweet and smoky delivery and Bibb's husky wail - akin to Blind Willie Johnson's in places - offers a double-sided dimension in interpretation for the listener, as well. Elsewhere, Charlie Musselwhite gives a killer snaky harmonica performance on Six O' Clock Blues. Taj Mahal makes two appearances; one in a duet on Goin' Down Slow, and one in a trio with Bibb and Malian guitarist Djelimady Tounkara on a medley of the traditional Kulanjan and Bibb's own Sebastian's Tune. Speaking of Mali, and Mahal, Bibb also covers the elder bluesman's classic Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes, with the great kora player Mamadou Diabate that rivals the original. There's also a gorgeous version of Guy and Susanna Clark's The Cape, with guitarist Martin Simpson, Bibb's moving For You with Ruthie Foster, and Tain't No Such Thing, a bright new folk song written and sung with legendary folksinger Odetta. Mohan Veena ace Harry Manx performs with Bibb on the high lonesome, droning blues of Needed Time, and with Kristina Olsen on her If I Stayed. The set closes with the tender Dance Me to the End of Love, (an original, not the Leonard Cohen tune) with the Lovin' Spoonful Jerry Yester playing piano. Given that most records of this type are mixed bags at best, with 'star-studded' collabs serving to muck up or water down rather than enhance performances, Friends is an anomaly. There is nothing that's obvious or overblown here, everything is subtly shaded, and the performers serve the songs and not themselves. The listener gets no sense of back-patting or self-congratulation, only the great pleasure of hearing this music in a revealing, emotionally honest way. Bravo.

    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Cattle Callin'

    Shelton Hank Williams, aka Hank III, presents two new projects: Attention Deficit Domination and 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin. Both are intensely metal-driven records on which Hank III plays all instruments. Attention Deficit Domination is a pressure-dropping, doom rock statement that has been anticipated by his hardcore fans for years, and Cattle Callin explores a new mind-bending 'Cattle Core' sound, featuring Hank III's speed metal woven in and around actual cattle auctioneering.


    Attention Deficit Domination allows the listener into Hank III's crunching metal world of the heavy and the slow, complete with his renowned fundamental percussion. The nine tracks hardly allow you to get up from the floor. With songs such as I Feel Sacrificed and the tormented Livin Beyond Doom, Hank III works a ground somewhere between devastation and high theater. Both A.D.D. and Cattle Callin' are very intense. It's very manic, Hank III explains. It's hard to follow, even for the guys I play with. I'm playing everything on these two. It's very complex.


    There are 23 tracks on Cattle Callin, featuring Hank III's driving, formidable guitar attack, with instrumentation built around the auctioneering tongue-in-cheek humor with titles such as Heavy Cattle and Angus of Death. Also fans of bluegrass will love the banjo-driven Cattle Callin Lonesome Blues, featuring Mason. I was raised around it (cattle auctioneering) and it's pretty amazing how fast these guys are, Hank III says. Hip-hop has looped auctioneers. Bluegrass has meessed around with it a little bit. This has never been done in the heavy metal world.

    At the time he recorded this album in 1957, Arnett Cobb was in the process of rebounding from a serious automobile accident that broke both his legs. Cobb's indomitable spirit shines through in these tracks, whether he is calmly preaching on When My Dream Boat Comes Home, grooving down the Lonesome Road, or roaring through the song that is almost as closely associated with him as it is with Illinois Jacquet - Flying Home.


    There are plenty of good blues, too, and pianist Ray Bryant's eloquence in this idiom is well exposed. Ray Barretto's conga adds another flavor to the rhythm section, especially on Cocktails for Two. With Ray Bryant, Wendell Marshall, Arthur Taylor and Ray Barretto.

    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.

    The Times They Are A-Changin' on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Stark, Austere, Acoustic Record Dylan's First With All-Original Material


    Title Track, The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, With God on Our Side Establish Dylan as Voice of Social Consciousness


    The Bard Addresses Issues Such as Equality, Racism, and Poverty and Helps Ignite 1960s Political Movements


    Faithful to the Source: Information-Rich 45RPM Pressing Brings the Simple Sounds of Dylan's Voice, Acoustic Guitar, and Harmonica into Lifelike Perspective


    Immediately distinguished by the you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and its unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and its unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner unlike few albums before or since.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI, this restored 45RPM analog version delivers the landscape-shifting music in reference-quality sound that practically transports you to Columbia's Studio A. Reflecting the austerity of the topics and Dylan's mood, the sonics are direct and unadorned-each word hitting with weight, each phrase lingering until it pulls you under, each storyline echoing as fact. The hollow body of Dylan's guitar, internal mechanisms of his harmonica, and graininess of his throat come across in full-on detail. Wider grooves mean more information reaches your ears.


    Marking a shift from the looseness and comedy that pepper the preceding The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin' skirts any attempt at humor, sarcasm, or goofiness in favor of utmost seriousness and severity. Seemingly anticipating the dark events surrounding President Kennedy's assassination and the turmoil that followed, Dylan eliminates with conjecture and disguise. Akin to dispatches from the typewriter of literary icons John Steinbeck and William Faulkner, his songs give voices to the voiceless, challenge cultural precepts, upend traditional beliefs with rapier wit and truths, and underline tragedies swept under the rug.


    In doing so, Dylan creates stinging protest music that rallies against unchecked authority, discrimination, brutality, and division. A testament to the power of great art, The Times They Are A Changin' is a righteous assault on ignorance and agent for sweeping action, a necessary impetus for transformation and enlightenment. Via bold originals such as the nonfiction "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll," assertive "Restless Farewell," and semi-autobiographical "North Country Blues," Dylan casts hardships, greed, and victimization in such relatable terms it's impossible to turn away and ignore their implications.


    As correctly relayed by Dylan expert and cultural critic Greil Marcus, "[The record] forever fixed Bob Dylan in the popular imagination: the protest singer, the young man 'able to see through metal' (again, from Chronicles), to see through the lie and find the truth, then to hammer the truth into words and send them out with a voice that would never break."

    Title Track, The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, With God on Our Side Establish Dylan as Voice of Social Consciousness

    Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies and Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Mobile Fidelity's 45RPM Mono Vinyl Set Presents Dylan's Voice, Guitar, and Harmonica in Superlative Sound


    Immediately distinguished by the direct mono sound and you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and its unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and its unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner like few albums before or since.

    As the preferred mix at the time of the recording, the mono version presents Dylan as he and his producers originally intended. Since the separation of the stereo versions isn't as sharp, the mono edition places Dylan's vocals in the heart of the musical action and as one with the accompaniment. It paints listeners an incredibly accurate portrait of the attention-getting, concrete mass of sound that features no artificial panning and straight-ahead immersion into the music. This is how almost everyone first heard this timeless album-making the mono mix all the more historically valuable and truthful.

    The Ghost Who Walks

    On her debut disc, The Ghost Who Walks, Karen Elson spins intriguingly unsettling tales of lost love, dashed hope, romantic betrayal and various crimes of passion witnessed only by the full moon. In a coolly inviting voice, strumming an acoustic guitar, she summons up a dark yet seductive atmosphere, an after-midnight world that's irresistibly alluring. The arrangements for her small band - featuring the virtuosic Jackson Smith on guitar, Elson's longtime collaborator Rachelle Garniez on accordion and vocals, and husband-producer Jack White on drums -- evoke the lonesome side of country (''Cruel Summer'') or the tormented side of the blues (''The Truth Is In the Dirt''), with eerie organ touches, and keening electric guitars.


    Until now, the British-born Elson has been better known as a top model, the face of ad campaigns for, among others, Armani, Prada, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent's Poison. With her pale white skin and shocking red hair, she seems an almost otherworldly presence on any given glossy page. While she assiduously worked as the face of various brands, she conducted an altogether different life behind the scenes as a singer and songwriter, honing what has proven to be her considerable skills. In part, she learned by doing: for the last five years, she's been a member, alongside Garniez, in the Weimar-style cabaret of New York City-based art and music collective The Citizens Band. Two of her more theatrical tracks, ''100 Years From Now'' and ''Mouths To Feed,'' inspired in part by author Tim Egan's dust bowl saga, The Worst Hard Time, were originally penned for her troupe, which combines bawdy entertainment with barbed political commentary.


    The Ghost Who Walks may not be drawn literally from Elson's life, but it does represent an aspect of her psyche she's been brave enough to explore: ''I'm very much interested in the dark side of things. In my life, truthfully, I've had a lot of bizarre and dark experiences that have definitely colored the way I think about a lot of personal things. The music I have always listened to as well has had a sorrowful, mournful, if not murderous, quality to it.'' She pauses to laugh. ''I'm not saying I would ever want to kill anybody, but sometimes love can drag you to the very depths of yourself and - my God - make you so desperate and forlorn. I really respond to songs that write about that. Hank Williams, for crying out loud, speaking of being forlorn and forsaken -- there's a song I just heard of his, an early demo, that really resonated with me. Those songs move me in a way that happy go lucky songs don't.''
