    Big Blues

    Pressed On 180-Gram Audiophile-Grade LPs At Pallas Group In Germany


    Mastered From Original Analog Tapes By Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios


    Recorded At Electric Lady Studios In New York City On February 2 & 3, 1978


    Flugelhornist Art Farmer and guitarist Jim Hall had a regular group for a time in the mid-'60s but (except for one occasion) had not played together since, until this 1978 LP. This is an unusual effort for CTI in that it is a quintet set without added horns, strings or keyboards. Farmer and Hall are joined by vibraphonist Mike Mainieri, bassist Michael Moore and drummer Steve Gadd for two standards, the title cut and a jazz adaptation of a piece by Ravel. Since Farmer and Hall have long had very complementary styles (both being
    lyrical, harmonically advanced and thoughtful in their improvisations), it is little surprise that this set is a complete success.


    Now this classic recording gets ORG Music's audiophile treatment with this 180-gram vinyl reissue, mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.

    Golden Butter: The Best Of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band


    The First Time Audiophile Vinyl 40th Anniversary Presentation Of Their Legendary Elektra Recordings


    Mastered Impeccably From The Original Elektra Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios & At Capitol Records With Ron McMaster


    Features The Original Gatefold Cover Album Art & Essay by Tony Glover


    Along with fellow superstars Jefferson Airplane, Steve Miller Band and The Grateful Dead, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was one of the first powerhouse rock acts of the sixties. With their phenomenal brand of Chicago blues music unlike any band before or after them, they helped to usher in the progressive underground rock movement.


    With its core line-up of Paul Butterfield (harmonica/lead vocalist), Mike Bloomfield (guitar), Elvin Bishop (guitar), Sam Lay(drums), Mark Nataflin (keyboards) and Jerome Arnold (bass), this amazing band truly delivered many legendary blues and rock recordings during their successful reign at Elektra Records.


    Blues masterpieces of the era still resonate today as Paul Butterfield and Co. foretold with their classic signature tunes like Born In Chicago, Look Over Yonders Wall, Mellow Down Easy and the mammoth blues prog-rocker East West. With the superstar talents that made up this band over the years, it was not uncommon to hear radio stations play entire sides of their revolutionary albums during the dawn of FM and underground radio.


    Later albums would reveal even further extensions of the blues rock genre with classic renditions like Marvin Gaye's One More Heartache, Michael Nesmith's Mary Mary, plus more of their own prolific standards like Last Hope's Gone, Morning Blues and of course their Woodstock 1969 anthem Love March.


    Elektra awarded The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and their huge fan base with a very extensive and amazing "Greatest Hits" package called Golden Butter back in 1972. Right from the start you get a healthy serving from their first monster release The Paul Butterfield Blues along with more solid tunes from other fine albums like East West, The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw, In My Own Dream, Live and Keep On Movin'.


    Out of print on vinyl for many years, it is with great pride and honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band classic Golden Butter - The Best Of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band on Friday Music.


    As a first installment in the Paul Butterfield/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this amazing album features 18 of their most important songs from their legendary albums from1965 through 1973. From the early blues rock sounds of Shake Your Money-Maker and the lengthy live epic Driftin' and Driftin' to later day album radio favorites like Blind Leading the Blind, One More Mile and the pivotal Willie Dixon favorite Spoonful, this album truly shows the relevance and importance of this sorely missed iconic band.


    Mastered impeccably from the original Elektra Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records with Ron McMaster, this super limited edition album also boasts the original gatefold cover album art and wonderful essay by Tony Glover, not seen in years!


    The two HQ vinyl LP's are also protected by polylined sleeves as well as a polybag to help keep the album cover and albums in great condition for your blues collection.

    Featured Musicians: The Eagles, Gerry Beckly (America) & Graham Nash


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso

    Dan Fogelberg was known for having the knack to successfully record some of the classiest rock and melodic pop recordings during his short time on Earth. His albums are legendary and his status as one of classic rock's premier icon acts is unmatched.


    For his second LP Souvenirs, Dan enlisted the help of good friend and fellow superstar Joe Walsh, giving the country rocker a more polished rock approach bringing this Lp to the top of the charts in 1974.


    This multi-platinum smash contained some of his biggest hit singles and rock tracks like the album opener Part Of The Plan (featuring Graham Nash), the gutsy guitar rocker When The Raven Flies and the acoustic rock power ballad There's A Place In The World For A Gambler.


    The music of Dan Fogelberg is no stranger to Friday Music, as we've been honored to feature many of his compact discs on our label. Therefore, it is with much pleasure to announce the Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of his incredible masterpiece Souvenirs. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso, Souvenirs is truly a classic masterwork now impeccably revisited in the audiophile domain.


    For this limited edition release, we are manufacturing it on 180 Gram Translucent Blue Audiophile Vinyl, and for to further enhance your listening pleasure, we are also including the long out of print gatefold cover, which includes all of the original graphics as you remember them, plus a 12 x 12 front cover LP art insert.

    Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau

    Nonesuch Records labelmates mandolinist/singer Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau, longtime admirers of each other's work, first toured as a duo in 2013. At the end of 2015, they played a two-night stand at New York City's Bowery Ballroom before going into the studio to record Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau, a mix of covers and original songs.


    Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau come from different worlds but the same species, says the New York Times. Mr. Thile is a progressive-bluegrass pacesetter; Mr. Mehldau is the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years. Both are team players ... Both love Bach and the Beatles, and both have developed fan bases bigger and broader (and younger) than their genre silos can accommodate.


    The two musicians first performed together in September 2011 as part of Mehldau's residency at London's Wigmore Hall. The Guardian said of that performance, Mehldau struck up his signature rocking chord vamp over which lightly struck motifs swell to sensuous extended melodies. Thile kept cajoling him with percussive snaps, flying runs, and chords strummed fast enough to sound as seamless as a purring strings section, inducing Mehldau to bat back the playful provocation with stinging rejoinders.


    MacArthur Fellow and A Prairie Home Companion host Chris Thile is the founding member of Punch Brothers, which a Boston Globe reviewer called the tightest, most impressive live band I have ever seen. The band has released four albums on Nonesuch beginning in 2008: Punch, Antifogmatic, Who's Feeling Young Now?, and The Phosphorescent Blues. Thile's other releases on the label include Sleep with One Eye Open with Michael Daves; Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile and Bass & Mandolin-the latter of which won a Grammy Award; a solo record of Bach violin sonatas and partitas; and A Dotted Line with his longtime band Nickel Creek. He also recently collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, and Edgar Meyer on the double Grammy Award-winning album The Goat Rodeo Sessions.


    Brad Mehldau's Nonesuch debut was the 2004 solo disc Live in Tokyo and includes six records with his trio: House on Hill, Day Is Done, Brad Mehldau Trio Live, Ode, Where Do You Start, and Blues and Ballads. His collaborative records on the label include Love Sublime, Highway Rider, Metheny Mehldau, Metheny Mehldau Quartet, Modern Music, and Mehliana: Taming the Dragon. Mehldau's additional solo albums on Nonesuch include Live in Marciac and last year's 8-LP/4-CD 10 Years Solo Live, which the New York Times says contains some of the most impressive pianism he has captured on record. Earlier this year, he released a duo album with Joshua Redman, Nearness, of which the Wall Street Journal said: Few records released this year better define what jazz sounds like today, even if there isn't a hip noun to describe it.

    Joe Jackson - Collected


    180-Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Gatefold Sleeve


    High-Quality PVC Protective Sleeve


    Featuring ''Fools In Love'', ''Is She Really Going Out With Him?'' And ''It's Different For Girls''


    Joe Jackson's debut single, ''Is She Really Going Out With Him?'', was not an immediate hit; however, by the time his debut album Look Sharp! was released, the song had reached charts in the U.K. and U.S., earning him a gold record. For the follow-up, he produced the top 5 hit ''It's Different For Girls'', Joe received the highest musical accolade of the Netherlands, the Edison Award.


    After two edgy new wave pop records, his next tracks included some reggae influences such as the tracks ''One to One'' and ''Mad At You'', while ''Jumpin' Jive'' - recorded with jazz musicians - was full of old jump blues and swing tunes.


    The huge commercial success came with his crafted pop songs ''Steppin' Out'' and jazzy ''Breaking Us In Two'' climbing the charts worldwide. Joe Jackson produced even jazzier hits in 1984 such as ''Happy Ending'', (a duet with Elaine Caswell), ''Be My Number Two'' and ''You Can't Get What You Want''.


    The album Big World (1986), a live album of entirely new material including ''Home Town'', was recorded during six concerts. It is not a regular live album though, the audience was asked to be quiet during the songs and the applause was edited out.


    The pop song ''Nineteen Forever'' was part of a larger construction from the album Blaze Of Glory, designed to tell a semi-autobiographical story. In 1991 Joe Jackson decided to abandon pop once and for all in favor of more serious music. It spawned the track ''Stranger Than Fiction''.


    Joe Jackson - COLLECTED is a comprehensive series of sounds Joe Jackson has gone through, from old to new, this collection will never get boring!

    The legendary pop/rock superstars The Lovin' Spoonful (John B. Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Steve Boone and Joe Butler) set the music world on fire back in the '60s. With a ton of television appearances, massive concert tours and of course an amazing string of hit singles and albums, The Lovin' Spoonful to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.

    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.

    Bigger Than Both Of Us

    Import

    Blue eyed Philly Soul icons Daryl Hall & John Oates were one of the few white groups to ever break into the top positions of the R&B charts. The duo has been honing their craft since the mid-sixties, building on their experience of working with producers like Gamble & Huff. Gradually showcasing a more poppy sound, their fifth album Bigger Than Both Of Us (1976) enabled them to continue the golden success of its predecessor Daryl Hall & John Oates. Noteworthy tracks are Rich Girl, opening track Back Together Again and Do What You Want, Be What You Are. Bigger Than Both Of Us is a diverse album with a central theme: the band rocks on Room To Breathe and flies high on Falling - but the soul is always there.

    Champagne Charlie (Pre-Order)

    Blending ragtime blues, honky tonk harmonies, vaudevillian echoes and a musical persona entirely his own, Leon Redbone's 1978 release Champagne Charlie is a tour de force from one of the most mercurial, magical and talented artists in modern music.

    One of the distinguishing factors on the record is the fine choice of material, which ranges from Jelly Roll Morton to Jimmie Rogers. As usual with Redbone, the fare is lighthearted and tinged with nostalgia, and sweetened by antique arrangements. The band is delightful, filled with jubilant horns, oboes, and trumpets and, of course, Redbone's rich baritone and throwback acoustic guitar shine.

    The album, produced by Joel Dorn, is filled with the best that Dixie, Delta blues and ragtime jazz has to offer keeping true to the old style that made these songs so popular to begin with. Leon has a sort of irreverent, off beat approach to these old jazz classics that is just plain fun to listen to. A charming and romantic introspective collection of classic blues and jazz melodies... each performance is an irresistible listen...his style is unmatched.

    Almost Blue

    180 Gram Vinyl


    Elvis Costello's impressive album of country covers is now available on 180-gram vinyl re-mastered from the original master tapes. This unique album includes "What A Good Year For The Roses" and country covers of classics from the likes Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons and more.


    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, it's laden with country and westerns customary themes and dignified by one of the finest performances of Costello and the Attractions peerless career.

    Sourced from the Original Masters, on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl with Jacket Meticulously Recreated from the Original Art


    Janis Joplin decided to make a sharp turn after Cheap Thrills, and abandoned her previous band Big Brother And The Holding Company. Her new band, the Kozmic Blues Band provided a tighter, more soulful approach to the blues rock 'Big Brother' is known for. By going solo, Joplin made a crucial point: she's got soul for miles on end.


    Featuring a horn section and a stronger emphasis on organ, I Got Them Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! yielded soul burners Try (Just A Little Bit Harder), Work Me Lord and As Good As You've Been To This World, as well as slower tracks like Maybe and Kozmic Blues. Hearing is believing!

    Produced By Eddie Cramer & Foghat


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Bearsville Records Tapes


    Foghat: Dave Peverett, Roger Earl, Rod Price, Craig MacGregor

    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.

    Gershwin: Rhapsody In Blue, An American In Paris (Speakers Corner)

    This fast and furious orchestral work with piano, which begins with what must surely be the most famous clarinet glissando of modern times, was composed with the intention of presenting as many facets as possible of music from the New World in the short space of around 15 minutes. In his Rhapsody In Blue Gershwin wanted to »paint a musical kaleidoscope of America - our enormous melting pot, our typical national traits, our blues, our seething city life«. With this in mind, Leonard Bernstein made a number of recordings of the work and among the many excellent recordings that he made as a conductor or as a soloist, this present version with the Columbia Orchestra, from 1959, is especially of note. Bernstein takes on a double function as conductor and soloist and manoeuvres his way safely and surely through the highly diversified score to create a well-rounded picture filled with hefty orchestral dynamics and finely chiselled solo playing. In Gershwin's freely composed work the soloist and orchestra do not resort to bombastic shock effects or egomaniac keyboard acrobatics, and so this the work can be described as rhapsodic in the very best sense of the word.
    Most fittingly, on the B side there is another freely composed work - the autobiographical sketch entitled An American In Paris. The superb New York musicians paint the impressions of a visitor to the hectic French capital city - that too is the sound of America.


    Musicians:



    • The Columbia Symphony Orchestra

    • New York Philharmonic Orchestra

    • George Gershwin (composer)

    • Leonard Bernstein (conductor)




    Recording: June 1959 and December 1958 at St George Hotel, Brooklyn, New York, by Fred Plaut and Frank Bruno

    Production: John McClure



    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.

    The Light Of The Sun

    Includes Bonus Track


    Executive produced by Jill Scott and J.R Hutson (Pharell, Faith Evans), The Light Of The Sun features appearances by rappers Paul Wall, Doug E. Fresh, and Eve and traverses the rocky terrain of love, longing and loss.


    The first single, So in Love, is a duet with Anthony Hamilton. When Scott first heard the track, a soul-filled melody that evokes the legendary pairing of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, she was moved to tears.


    This music came about in a very organic way, says Scott reflecting on the free-style jam sessions that resulted in the creation of The Light Of the Sun, which drops in June of 2011. I've enjoyed the recording process more that I ever have before.

    Neon Angel

    Bryan's honesty in her approach to song writing has created a stylization that defies category. Neon Angel is a unique and personal body of work. In it, her lyrics are visual and socially relevant, yet intimate, poetic and immediate. Her music ranges from the ethereal to a plaintive earthiness, and at times both expressions are grasped in the same moment. This recording is as classic and as powerful as Joni Mitchell's legendary Blue.


    The setting for Nancy's songs is specific, yet timeless. Blame It On The Moon is a Southern swamplife spiritual sung against an undulating bass line. Pulse and Time is as light as whipped cream in the confluence of dobro, ukulele and D-tuned acoustic guitar. And you can almost see the cold blue November sky behind a silhouette of skyscrapers in the melancholy Chicago Skyline and feel the singer's loneliness as her soaring vocals cry out for an irredeemable past.


    Neon Angel was recorded live, direct-to-two-track at Blue Heaven Studios, the converted 77-year-old church in Salina, Kansas. This 13-song, all-acoustic album emphasizes the church's natural acoustics, bringing to life the massive, vaulted ceiling and Nancy on the altar.


    Though this is only her second solo release, Nancy has won acclaim for several songs she's written and sung for Disney, including a track for the Grammy-nominated and now-gold record Take My Hand. Her songs have also appeared on MTV's popular shows The Real World and Road Rules.


    Every track on this record is naked and essential and is an equally integral part of a brilliant mosaic.

    The Yellow Princess (Pure Pleasure)

    This particular John Fahey LP is a personal favourite of many of his devout fans for several reasons. And although such a judgment is tough, if one were looking to own only one album by this unique guitarist, The Yellow Princess could be the one. The recording sound is among the best of his many releases; at the proper volume, the effect is as if one had taken up residency inside the sound hole of a giant acoustic guitar. The program of pieces is marvellously emotional and varied, with many moments of precisely stated harmonies moving at courageously slow tempos. The second piece on the first side, View (East from the Top of the Riggs Road/B&O Trestle), is surely one of his masterpieces, on a par with Charles Ives for musical Americana. It is a great added bonus to have liner notes by the artist, some of the best and most absurd text he ever came up with. Yet another reason this is one of Fahey's top sides is it allows a chance to hear one of his few collaborations with other musicians. Several members of the fine rock group Spirit are present, along with drummer Kevin Kelley, for several lovely pieces, including the March! For Martin Luther King, a remarkably heartfelt tribute that could have gone on much longer. Taped sounds and electronic effects on The Singing Bridge of Memphis, Tennessee certainly predict the more noisy stuff Fahey would get into in the later part of his career.




    Musicians:



    • John Fahey (guitar, vocal)

    • Jay Ferguson (organ, piano)

    • Mark Andes (electric bass)

    • Matt Andes (guitar)

    • Kevin Kelley (drums)




    Recording: 1968 at Sierra Sound Laboratories, Berkeley, CA, USA
