    Blue Velvet Soundtrack

    For the first time in nearly 30 years, the haunting soundtrack to David Lynch's masterpiece 'Blue Velvet' is available on vinyl in North America. The first of many collaborations between the director and composer Angelo Badalamenti, 'Blue Velvet's' evocative score is juxtaposed with Lynch's use of early pop tunes, creating an unsettling effect that complemented the movie perfectly. You'll also find the first musical collaboration between Lynch, Badalamenti and Julee Cruise here.

    Floating Into The Night

    "Floating Into The Night" is the 1989 debut album by vocalist Julee Cruise featuring songs written and produced by composer Angelo Badalamenti and film director David Lynch (who wrote the lyrics). The songs Falling and Rockin' Back Inside My Heart were both featured in Lynch's cult television series, Twin Peaks. The instrumental version of "Falling" was the theme song for Twin Peaks while the album as a whole is almost an unofficial soundtrack to the series. The track "Mysteries Of Love" was prominently featured in Lynch's classic film Blue Velvet. Cruise's dreamy, light vocals match perfectly with the music and lyrics to make this album sound like it is unattached to any era or time. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with a double sided insert by Plain Recordings.

    Experimental Art/Rock Group From New York, Tracks Selection Include I'm Waiting For The Man, Venus In Furs, Heroin And More Classics


    An album by The Velvet Underground needs to be in the collection of every legitimate music lover. Those who do not yet have an album from this legendary group can now fill this gap by purchasing the new Collected.


    The band, with artistic exponents of text and music writers Lou Reed and John Cale, influenced generations of rock musicians and groups. Certainly, in the 70s and early 80s the cult status of this group, briefly managed by Andy Warhol, reached extraordinary proportions. The Velvet Underground was already a real punk band ten years before the rise of this music genre. This was reflected in their lifestyle, drug use and attitude. Musically, however, you can hardly compare them with punk music. With songs like Heroin, I'm Waiting For The Man and White Light / White Heat, they released a new definition of rock and roll.


    The Collected compilation consists of 2 LPs with a total of 23 songs. One of the above-mentioned classics is I'm Waiting For The Man, in which the protagonist's addiction forces him to wait for his dealer with his twenty-six dollars in hand, a number that expresses an addict in an unprecedented direct and realistic way. The chaotic and sometimes atonal music confirm the grim narrative. In addition, we will find What Goes On, Pale Blue Eyes, Venus In Furs and many more songs from the pivotal band.

    The Big Blues

    Sourced from the Original King Mono Master Tapes

    Pressed on 180-Gram Vinyl at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI)


    Standing well over six feet and weighing in at around 250 pounds, it's no surprise that Albert King earned the nickname "The Velvet Bulldozer." Standing on stage with his Gibson Flying V, named Lucy, King cut an imposing visual figure. After a few abortive recording attempts, King scored a #14 R&B single on King Records with "Don't Throw Your Love on Me So Strong" in 1961. The song captured the distinctive call-and-response style between King's voice and guitar, a direct extension of his gospel roots and it was included on his debut album, The Big Blues. Backed by a razor sharp band, which included Ike Turner on piano, King showed an authoritative command of ballads, rumbas and mid-tempo shuffles. It was a sound honed in countless club gigs, a "vivid sound" as the LP jacket rightly proclaimed. To restore this sound to its royal splendor, Sundazed sourced this reissue from the original King mono master tapes. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI) in Camarillo, CA, this resurrected LP boasts breathtaking sound. Nothing less would have been worthy of one of the most important albums in the blues pantheon. All hail King Albert!

    Paradise

    Sometimes stars emerge. Sometimes stars are thrust upon us. And sometimes stars simply slip into the atmosphere as if propelled by something otherworldly. It is into this last category that the astonishing presence, voice, look and feel of Lana Del Rey falls. Musical stardom is not an option with Ms Del Rey. It is her vocation. She calls herself the 'gangsta Nancy Sinatra' and defines her genre as 'Hollywood pop/sadcore,' a dramatic new loop for pop music. Her look she describes as 'Lolita got lost in the hood.' Get used to it all. This isn't just soundbite, it's Lana's reality.


    The EP's lead single is Ride, a downtempo pop ballad produced by Rick Rubin and co-written by Video Games author Justin Parker. The video for Ride premiered at a promotional event in Santa Monica on October 10, airing online two days later. A cover of the popular 1950s track, Blue Velvet, and an original track, Burning Desire, were included on the EP as promotional singles. An ancillary music video for Blue Velvet was used in a commercial for clothing line H&M to help promote the EP. For the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Del Rey served as a model for the Jaguar F-Type luxury automobile and performed Burning Desire as another avenue of promotion. Burning Desire also serves as the soundtrack for an eponymously titled short film starring Damian Lewis scheduled for a 2013 release. A teaser trailer was released to Del Rey's official YouTube channel with snippets of each song featured on the EP. Even before its release, the song Cola received media attention due to the controversial nature of its lyrics. The track was confirmed to be the EP's second single several days after its release. Music videos for Ride, Blue Velvet, and Bel Air were posted to VEVO and YouTube to help promote the EP.

    The Monument Singles Collection

    Roy Orbison is often credited with having one of the most powerful voices in Rock 'n Roll.


    He certainly had one of the most distinctive ones; yet his operatic quavering and impressive range were used to portray a quiet and desperate vulnerability that was foreign to most of his rebelling, sex, drugs & rock'n'roll contemporaries.


    This vulnerability is probably why he was so very popular in the '60s, and why after a dip of almost twenty years he could easily reclaim his prominence in the '80s. When David Lynch (in)famously used his song 'In Dreams' in Blue Velvet the public - and Roy himself - learned that there was a different side to his sultryness, and interest in his music was renewed. To celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday Music On Vinyl is releasing The Monument Singles Collection, with amongst others "Only The Lonely", "Crying", and of course "Pretty Woman".

    Fire Walk With Me is an altogether more brooding affair than the Twin Peaks series soundtrack. Badalamenti won a grammy for the title track of this LP and it's not hard to see why- it's dangerous, and bursting with smokey jazz thanks to Jimmy Scott. We went back to the master tapes in the Warner Archives and had this recut to fit across two LPs as the score clocks in at 51 minutes. It sounds incredible and punchy, but super nuanced too.


    From the brooding opening bars of the main Fire Walk With Me Theme, Angelo Badalamenti's gorgeous, eerie score introduces us to a cinematic experience which significantly begins with the smashing of a television screen. Just as the Main Title from Blue Velvet echoed the Hitchcockian hues of Bernard Herrmann, so here we have just the slightest touch of Taxi Driver, as Jim Hynes' plaintive, keening trumpet soars above a landscape of melancholy keyboards, drawing us into a world which is at once alien and familiar.

    CI Audio VPC-3 Passive Controller



    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Performance meets flexibility with the VPC•3. Add volume control and input selection to your system without additional gain for the purest signal.


    Our new VPC•3 Passive Controller is a simple audio volume control/input selector, yet offers great performance and flexibility. Audio purists have recognized most signal sources, outboard DACs, and Phono preamps, have plenty of signal to drive an amplifier directly, without passing through another active gain stage, which adds distortions and coloration.


    Similar to its predecessors VPC•1 and VPC•2, the new version is equipped with 2 pairs of inputs and a front panel switch for selection of "Input 1", "Mute" and "Input 2". The second pair of outputs has been added for increased flexibility. The main pair is variable through the volume control, while the 2nd pair can be internally configured as another variable pair for bi-amping or use with a powered subwoofer, or can be configured as a fixed level output. This allows the selected input to be sent to a recording device or second system.


    Our new ALPS® Blue Velvet precision potentiometer uses offers excellent sound quality, channel to channel tracking, and long life. Careful design layout using 2 oz. copper circuit board, silver solder construction, and short signal path are used for best conductivity and optimum performance. All jacks, switches, and jumpers are high quality with gold plated contacts.

A 12v trigger output can also be controlled by the remote to turn on/off other devices (amplifiers, etc.)


    Route your audio where you need it


    Four standard audio inputs and a tape loop allow for up to five audio sources. The fourth input can be internally configured as a Home Theater Bypass Input. Input display uses sequentially illuminated blue LEDs for easy identification from across the room, and an orange LED for tape monitor. Two pair of output jacks are provided for bi-amping, sub-woofers, etc.


    Premium parts and construction


    Audio signals are switched by highest quality relays with gold-plated contacts, then fed to a custom ALPS® Blue Velvet motorized potentiometer.

    The VHP•2 improves over our VHP•1 with a new potentiometer, 2 oz. copper circuit board, silver solder construction and select upgraded internal components.


    New and Improved


    Our new VHP•2 is an improved version of our highly acclaimed VHP•1. Improvements include a new ALPS® Blue Velvet potentiometer, 2 oz. copper circuit board with silver solder construction, and a handful of upgraded internal components. As before, it is a versatile studio quality headphone amplifier for use with most any headphones.


    Audio Circuit


    Unlike most amplifiers, it uses a unique current-feedback circuit rather than opamps, and is optimized for a wide range of load impedances (30-700 ohms). This high bandwidth, extremely low noise design yields greater than 120 dB of dynamic range and exceeds the capabilities of the human ear, ensuring that nothing audible is lost due to the amplifier.
    Current-on-demand at the output enables the amplifier to respond quickly and linearly when necessary without risk of output distortion. When large amounts of output power are suddenly needed, the amplifier can respond extremely quickly without raising the noise floor of the system and degrading the signal-to-noise performance, and the high slew rate prevents odd order distortion.


    Headphone Swiss Army Knife


    Two gain settings, selectable by a convenient front panel switch, allow for quick and easy optimization for high or low-efficiency headphones. Other features include Short Circuit and Thermal protection, looped-through output jacks and external 14vAC power supply.

    I Get Evil

    Albert King, the velvet bulldozer, was one third of the 'three kings of guitar' along with B.B and Freddie, although given he was 6'4' and weighed 250lbs he probably amounted to a little more. His stature as a man was reflected in his musicianship and his guitar style influenced the likes of Mick Taylor, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Derek Trucks.

    Mystery Girl Expanded

    Everyone involved with Mystery Girl sensed the magic in Roy Orbison, who, in 1988, was enjoying a full creative renaissance and resurgence of popularity. One of Roy's classic recordings, "In Dreams," memorably lip-synched into a hurricane lamp by Dean Stockwell, had served as a key thematic element in David Lynch's "Blue Velvet," igniting a renewed interest in the Big O.


    In a series of bold aesthetic moves, Orbison directly addressed his legacy, first with Class of '55 (a 1986 reunion album with fellow Sun Records alumni Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins) and then, In Dreams: The Greatest Hits, where Orbison recut many of his biggest songs, using 1980s technology to produce results often surpassing his original recordings.


    At this same time, Roy Orbison became a founding member of the Traveling Wilburys, the roots rock supergroup also featuring Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, and Tom Petty. It was during work with the Wilburys that the vision for Mystery Girl, a new Roy Orbison album made of original songs from a variety of writers-including Roy Orbison, Diane Warren, Elvis Costello, Wesley Orbison and U2s Bono and the Edge (among others)-began taking shape.


    "When he sang it, it was absolutely magnificent," said Jeff Lynne, who would produce tracks for Mystery Girl. "His voice, I had never heard a voice like that live, you know, in the studio, ever . He had this wonderful spirit, almost like a kid in many ways.


    He was just a happy guy. I love him . One of the proudest things I've ever done is to have become his friend. I'd look at him and just go, 'Wow, it's him. The Big O.'"


    Roy's core group of musicians on the original Mystery Girl recordings included Jeff Lynne (guitar, piano, bass, backing vocals), Tom Petty (acoustic guitar, backing vocals), Mike Campbell (guitar, bass, mandolin), Jim Keltner (drums), Howie Epstein (bass, backing vocals), and Benmont Tench (piano, organ, cheap strings). Contributing artists on the album include Barbara Orbison, Roy Orbison, Jr., Al Kooper, George Harrison, Bono, T Bone Burnett, Steve Cropper, The Memphis Horns, and more.


    "I was just taken by how amazing this guy was. Just sitting, singing softly, sitting on the sofa with an acoustic guitar, his voice was unbelievable." remembers Tom Petty. "The music will live on, you know; it's very timeless music."


    Mike Campbell added, "Any time I hear one of Roy's songs, wherever I am, I just stop and listen to it and he's there, you know. His artistry and his voice and his spirit and the depth of his soul is so unique and it just connects with you in such a deep way . He just had a way of getting into your heart."


    "He was a real innovator, truly a great singer," said Bono. "The real rebels to me always had manners. Elvis, you know, and Roy, Roy was a true gentleman. And that's a scary thing in a man, do you know what I mean? A man that's so sure in himself that he can be polite."


    The legendary guitarist Steve Cropper confided that, "I've only met basically three, maybe three-and-a-half, of what I call 'light bulbs' in my life. And what I mean by 'light bulbs' is they're the brightest one in the room and when they walk in the door every head turns. Every head. Not just a few, not some people still talking in the corner. It's like everyone stops what they are doing. Elvis Presley, Otis Redding and Roy Orbison. And I saw that happen to Bill Clinton. So, there you go and I've never seen that happen to anybody else, ever."

    Mick Ronson originally achieved commercial
    success as David Bowie's guitarist in backing
    band The Spiders of Mars during the Ziggy
    Stardust era. In 1975, Ronson released
    his second solo album Play Don't Worry.
    Comprised mostly of covers by such artists
    as The Velvet Underground and Little
    Richard, Ronson meticulously reimagines
    these songs in his own musical style. A
    genius instrumentalist, Play Don't Worry is a
    supreme example of Ronson's abilities at the
    height of his career.

    I Feel So Far Away: Anthology 1974-1998

    As one quarter of one of the most influential bands of the 20th century, Maureen Moe Tuckers work in the Velvet Underground created a template for all rock drummers that followed. Even today, Moes primal, tribal rhythms can be heard in countless songs from artists around the globe. Her no-nonsense style, spare kit, no drum stool, almost no cymbals, conveyed an urgency and an honesty that was the foundation of the bands sound. In a patchouli-soaked world of 20 minute double-bass drum solos, Moe kept it simple, direct and to the point. As Lou Reed put it, Shes the driving force. The hardcore heart of the Velvets mindset.


    Following her tenure with VU, Moe emerged as a solo artist, building a body of work that stretched over three decades. Ranging from home recordings to collaborations with members of Sonic Youth, Violent Femmes, Half-Japanese and her former band, the songs cover a gamut of styles but all bear the unmistakable thumbprint of their creator. Released by various independent labels on LPs, EPs, singles and compact discs, collecting her catalog has been a daunting task. This compilation finally gathers those far-flung tracks in one place.


    More than just a drummer, Moe is a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass, sax, keyboards, harmonica and whatever else the song might need. For prime examples of her DIY recording technique, check out her rendition of Chuck Berrys Around and Around from her debut LP Playin Possum. Recording that album at home on a four-track tape recorder allowed Moe to reconnect with her rock roots and eventually led to a return to live performing.


    Moving to Douglas, Georgia as a single mother in the early 80s greatly impacted her songwriting. Themes of workaday blues and tough times are reflected in songs like Spam Again and Thats B.A.D. Loss is also a recurring topic, as in Andy, a touching tribute to the late Andy Warhol. However, it is not all darkness and melancholia. Bursts of exuberance in songs like Hey Mersh! and her loving cover of Bo Diddley radiate infectious joy. Moe also faces the VU legacy head on, reinterpreting seminal tracks like Heroin, Im Waiting for the Man, Pale Blue Eyes and Im Sticking with You and making them her own. Of all the former Velvets, Moes solo work is perhaps the most direct continuation of the bands sound and structure. She never lost her love for pure, lean rock and roll.


    This collection has been mastered by Sundazeds Bob Irwin and includes notes by David Fricke. Available on three LPs, Sundazed is honored to present this first-ever career anthology for an uncompromising artist of remarkable tenacity and vision.

    The Shaw Tapes: Live In Detroit 5/27/88

    "The best garage band in America since the '60s. Very primitive they made
    people with Les Pauls and Marshall amps look like idiots."
    - Jack White


    Recorded at a party in a Detroit storefront in 1988, this live recording of the
    Gories captures the band at their apex. The ferocity, intensity and grit that come
    through this record is a testament to why the Gories oeuvre has been heavily
    mined for the past two decades by hundreds of poseurs, pretenders and johnny-come-latelys
    The dual-guitar attack of Dan Kroha's smooth Fender Jaguar and
    Mick Collins screechy Kent Videocaster, coupled with the snare-less, cymbal-less,
    bass drum-less primitive drumming of Peggy O'Neill forms a perfect meld of
    40's blues, 50's R&B, 60's garage and 70's punk. Dare we say it, but in terms of
    in uence and reach, the Gories were the Velvet Underground of their day

    High Fidelity

    Original soundtrack to the film High Fidelity (15th Anniversary).



    Gen X rock buffs can revel in nostalgia with the High Fidelity soundtrack. The film centers on the romantic escapades of record-store owner and ex-club DJ Rob Gordon (John Cusack) and his full-time obsession with music. Since High Fidelity has as much to do with vinyl addiction as it does with the difficulties of love, great care has been taken with its selection of tracks, a solidly eccentric collection of heartache-heavy pop gems ranging from obscure '60s bands and groundbreaking artists like the Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan, to Stevie Wonder and Stereolab. As in the film, there's a method to the compilers' elitist rock-geek madness. Even co-star Jack Black's schlocky blue-eyed cover of Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On doesn't seem out of place.



    The inspired screeches of acid-fried '60s singer-songwriter Roky Erickson's You're Gonna Miss Me set the pace for the musing, hangdog tone of the album. Besides the joyous licks of the Kinks' Everybody's Gonna Be Happy and Royal Trux's hybrid of hip-hip, techno, and aggressive rock on Inside Game, the bulk of the set is composed of moody folk-rock tunes like Dylan's exquisite Most of the Time and the Velvets' Oh! Sweet Nuthin. Other noteworthy tracks include Love's Always See Your Face, the Beta Band's Dry the Rain, Elvis Costello's wistful Shipbuilding, the stinging irony of Smog's Cold Blooded Old Times, and Stevie Wonder's soulful optimism on I Believe (When I Fall in Love It Will Be Forever). It's a fine, complementary batch of tunes that not only enhances the film's mood but is integral to its theme, and, as High Fidelity's Rob Gordon would agree, it'll go down as one of the top five soundtracks [originally] released in 2000. - Derrick Mathis (AllMusic)

    Local Customs: Lone Star Lowlands

    The second in Numeros series of peeks into the world of regional studios hones in on Mickey Rouses Lowland operation out of Beaumont, Texas. Long after the Boppers plane crashed and the Winter brothers (Johnny and Edgar) and Janis Joplin split, Texas Golden Triangle was home to a vibrant scene of musicians, songwriters, and entrepreneurs just trying to make it in Houston, let alone the world.


    From the ashes of a vibrant garage and stage band scene, the Lowland studio and its clientele were formed. Holed up in a rundown strip mall, groups like Mourning Sun, Insight Out, Sage, Sassy, Mother Lion, Hope, Circus, and Boot Hill tracked out hundreds of demos, most of which were put on the shelf and left to bake in the South East Texas heat. Until now.


    Over the last two years, Numero has painstakingly gone through every tape in the studios archives, selecting the best of the best (28 for this 2xLP) for this peerless compilation. The songs themselves run the gamut; southern boogie rock, CSNY clones, British blues thunder, garage-psych hangovers, Morricone-esque supper club instrumentals, yacht rock, and what can only be described as Bobby McPherin fronting the Velvet Underground, are threaded together in the way only a tightly-knit scene can be. Forget bringing these treasures back to life, Numeros giving them the life they never had.

    1. Lowlands Studio Band - Trash One
    2. Insight Out - Live My Life Today
    3. Mother Lion - Simple House

    CBGB: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    WATCH OUT! PUNK IS COMING!


    By the end of 1973, New York City was bankrupt, Watergate had compromised the credibility of the U.S. government, and the Carpenters were the bestselling
    young recording act in America. Rock 'n' roll was dead!


    Enter Hilly Kristal, who dreamed of running a country & blues bar in the Bowery. Instead, the club he opened, CBGB (Country, Bluegrass, Blues) became
    the birthplace of punk and underground music. CBGB was the modern-day salon for the disenfranchised youth of New York City and Kristal gave these
    young local bands a stage. Artists such as the Talking Heads, Blondie, Patti Smith, Ramones, Dead Boys and Television all started at this iconic club.


    The story of Hilly Kristal and his legendary club will be coming to theaters this October when CBGB hits the big screen. The film has an all-star ensemble cast headed by Alan Rickman (the Harry Potter series, Die Hard) who plays Kristal. Co-starring with Rickman will be Malin Akerman (The Proposal,Suburgatory), Ryan Hurst (Sons Of Anarchy), Ashley Greene (The Twilight series), Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), Stana Katic (Castle) and
    Rupert Grint (the Harry Potter series).


    Omnivore Recordings is proud to present CBGB: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on CD and naturally, double-LP (with first pressing on translucent
    pink vinyl). An essential collection of songs that made the punk movement, CBGB presents twenty slices of original American music, many rarely
    compiled or unavailable for years. The soundtrack contains music from influential artists that informed the scene (The Velvet Underground, The Stooges
    and MC5), to acts that broke through with huge commercial acclaim (Talking Heads, Blondie and The Police). And there's even music from bands whose
    legendary status will forever be linked to the club that gave them a voice (Dead Boys, Television. Wayne County, The Dictators and more).

    Wine Dark Sea

    Over the span of her career, Jolie Holland has knotted together a century of American
    song-jazz, blues, soul, rock and roll-into some stew that is impossible to categorize
    with any conventional critical terminology. She thrives on the red hot center of a
    musical composition, in all its strange and brutal detail. Note how easily the line "I've
    been taken outside and I've been brutalized" trips off her tongue in Joe Tex's "The Love
    You Save." Which brings us to the new album Wine Dark Sea, coming May 20th from
    ANTI-. Astute listeners to Holland's work can recognize how her writing over the years
    has deepened, matured, become the songwriting of a wise, worldly adult, not just of a
    rambler across the American latitudes, but to understand this is still no preparation for
    the sonic assault, the unprecedented confidence and merciless brilliance of Wine Dark
    Sea which yokes the New York underground to American song in a way that has rarely
    been attempted since White Light/White Heat by the Velvet Underground. Two drummers, sometimes as many as three or four electric guitars, horns of a sort that come
    out of free jazz and the No Wave scene as much as they come from soul music, and a
    refreshing need, on Holland's part, to sing out at the extreme of her range, above the
    squalling insatiable lullaby of the thing. Wine Dark Sea is the album of a lifetime, with
    a lifetime of work in it.
