    Going Back To Acoustic (Pure Pleasure)

    Originally issued in France on Isabel Records 900.510 under the title "Going Back" this LP presents one of the best duos in the history of the blues, guitarist Buddy Guy and harmonica player Junior Wells. Over the years they made many recordings together but this one is unique. Recorded whilst on a 1981 tour of Europe, Guy and Wells took a break from their backing musicians and amps to cut this spontaneous, all acoustic set. The results stand in stark contrast to the steamy Chicago blues the duo is best known for. Instead these recordings are relaxed and personal, with an intimate, back porch feel. Guy switches between six and twelve string guitars, and lays down rootsy acoustic rhythms for Wells's tasteful harmonica lines. The two share vocal duties on the performances as they pay homage to the rural, country blues roots these modern bluesmen share.



    Musicians:



    • Buddy Guy (guitar, vocal)

    • Junior Wells (harmonica, vocal)



    Recording: May 1981 at Sysmo Studio, Paris
    Production: Didier Tricard




    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.



    and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

The landmark single represents the first time that these two blues titans have ever joined together on a studio release.


    Carrying 12 tracks on 3 sides, the fourth side is graced with a beautifully crafted 'etching' that is as much a pleasure for the eye as the other sides are for your ears!

    King Bee

    King Bee is the final release by Blues legend Muddy Waters (born in 1913 as McKinley Morganfield), originally released in 1981 and produced by Johnny Winter. Due to Waters' failing health, the LP was recorded in only three days in May of 1980. The LP includes newly recorded Muddy Waters classics, such as I'm A King Bee, Champagne & Reefer, Sad Sad Day and (My Eyes) Keep Me In Trouble. Around the time of the album's release, Waters hit the road with a new band as much as his slowly declining health allowed him to.


    By the end of 1981, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and had to have part of his lung removed. Still, in 1982 a new tour was booked but an increasing number of performances had to be canceled. And after having made a surprise appearance at an Eric Clapton concert in Miami that Summer, Waters found out the cancer had returned as he was coughing blood. Sadly, his body wasn't strong enough for another operation. On April 30, 1983 McKinley Morganfield died of a heart attack. Five years later he was posthumously inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Amongst his admirers are Buddy Guy, The Rolling Stones, Rory Gallagher, John Mayall and Steve Winwood.

    Delivery Man

    In celebration of their 10-year Anniversary, Lost Highway Records is re-releasing twenty of their most acclaimed albums including Elvis Costello's The Delivery Man on limited edition clear vinyl.


    With 2004's The Delivery Man, Elvis Costello & the Imposters' first release for Lost Highway, one of modern music's most admired and prolific talents delivered a remarkable album that draws on deep American musical roots more than any of his releases since King of America in 1986.


    Recorded in Oxford, MS and produced by Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Counting Crows, Buddy Guy & Cracker) and Elvis Costello, it is a collection that ranges from the ferocious, bass-driven opening track, Button My Lip, which speaks in the voice of a desperate man on the verge of committing a terrible crime, to a tender and timely closing rendition of, The Scarlet Tide, referred to by Costello's co-composer and fellow Oscar Nominee, T Bone Burnett as an anti-fear song.


    Like a lot of great things in music history, The Delivery Man can be said to have started with the late great Johnny Cash. The Delivery Man is actually a character imported from a song I wrote in about 1986 for Johnny Cash, Costello explains. He's based on a real character. I read this story in the paper about a man who confessed to murdering his childhood friend thirty years later, having been in prison for a number of other things. I thought this story was very interesting because he'd carried this burden of guilt of this childhood crime. I wrote a fictional version of that story in a song called 'Hidden Shame,' which John recorded.


    Beyond the Imposters, longtime Attractions Pete Thomas and Steve Nieve, and more recent revelation Faragher, The Delivery Man also features winning turns from two of Costello's own favorite artists, Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams.

    Blues Singer

    Pressed On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl

    Housed In A Gatefold Sleeve

    Grammy Award 2004 Winner In The Category 'Best Traditional Blues Album'

    The album is all acoustic and dedicated to John Lee Hooker with the line, In Memory of John Lee Hooker. You are missed.

    Not known for his acoustic work, Buddy Guy unplugs for a rare album-length excursion into folk blues. The guitarist gets down and dirty with 12 tracks that sound like they were recorded after hours in his living room or on his back porch.

    Guy's stinging leads are still evident as is his emotive voice, but both are less flamboyant in the unplugged setting. Accompanied by spare stand-up bass and brushed drums, Guy sounds nearly possessed on covers from Skip James (Hard Time Killing Floor), Johnny Shines (Moanin' and Groanin'), Son House (Louise McGhee), and John Lee Hooker (Sally Mae) among others. It's a low-key, low-down affair made for late nights, rainy days, and the saddest of moods.

    Guy is just as convincing here--arguably more so--as on his barnstorming electric albums, making Blues Singer one of the bravest and most poignant albums in his catalogue.

    The album earned Guy the 2004 Grammy Award for 'Best Traditional Blues Album'.

The album was recorded primarily at the prestigious Blackbird Studio with some of the greatest Nashville musicians, including bassists Michael Rhodes and Tom MacDonald, guitarist Rob McNelley, and keyboard player Reese Wynans, a veteran ofStevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble.


    Quinn has been a music professional more than three-quarters Of his life. Beginning his career at age 3, Quinn, who is currently a high school student, has shared the stage with Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Los Lobos, The Roots, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi and Joe Bonamassa, and also opened for B.B. King, who later invited him to play his treasured "Lucille" guitar.


    He has performed concerts and at festivals throughout the United States - including storied venues like Hollywood bowl, RFK stadium, and Madison Square Garden - traveled overseas - performing at both the Montreux Jazz Festival and India's Mahindra Blues Festival - and played several editions of the Experience Hendrix tour, backed by Jimi's original bassist Billy Cox.


    A protÉgÉ of Buddy Guy, Quinn always follows his mentor's advice: "Just go out there and show them why you're here Make them remember you."

    The Blues Giant (Pure Pleasure)

    Buddy Guy is arguably the most distinctive, electrifying guitarist in Blues history. On a good night, there is no player in the world who can match him. But for all of Guy's talent, unfortunately there are few studio recordings that document his genius. Producers have always wanted him either to sound old-fashioned (i.e., the '50s Chess Chicago Blues sound) or too modern (i.e., some abberation of Jimi or Clapton).



    Buddy was only produced properly one time: and the result is this album. After several mediocre albums in the '60s and '70s, someone finally let Buddy play in the studio with the creative, reckless abandon that, when playing live, has ignited every building in which he has ever played. This IS Buddy Guy!



    Musicians:



    • Buddy Guy (guitar, vocal)

    • Phil Guy (guitar)

    • J. Williams (bass)

    • Ray Allison (drums)



    Recording: October 1979 at Condorcet Studio, Toulouse (France) by Francois Porterie

    Production: Didier Tricard

    Skin Deep

    Buddy Guy's new album, Skin Deep is his 10th Silvertone/Zomba studio release and it features all original material as well as collaborations with fellow guitar luminaries Eric Clapton, Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.


    Elaborating on his inspiration for the album title and song Skin Deep, Guy touches upon a powerful series of personal memories and observations on the ways in which were all the same underneath it all. I used to play with this boy, ride horses, down close to where I was born, he says. Then when we were 13, his parents made us stop. They used to say you had black blood or white blood, but wed get a flashlight and hold it up to our skin and wed just see red blood. Thats what I mean by 'Skin Deep.'


    In a career spanning more than 45 years, Buddy Guy continues to add to his ever-growing legacy. At the age of 72, he graced the cover of Rolling Stone, as part of the magazines recent '100 Greatest Guitar Songs' issue (his cataclysmic 1961 recording of Stone Crazy made the list) and he also turned in a show-stopping performance in Martin Scorseses Rolling Stones concert film, Shine A Light. Guy has won five Grammy Awards, 23 W.C. Handy 'wards (the most any one blues artist has received), a Congressional Medal of Arts and Billboard Magazine's prestigious The Century Award for 'distinguished artistic achievement. In 2005 Buddy Guy was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by friends Eric Clapton and B.B. King.

    The Howlin' Wolf/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Continues!


    His Self Titled "Rockin' Chair" Masterwork Album Is Back!


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover With Rare Photos


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records Mono Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Howlin' Wolf (Chester Burnett) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His
    legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal and stage prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago
    style blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.


    With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began his career cutting early sides for
    Sun before landing in Chicago in the early fifties, where he began a long climb to the top of the blues world on the
    Chess label.


    In 1962, he released his stellar self-titled masterpiece Howlin' Wolf. Featuring an all-star band with the likes of
    the legendary Jimmy Rogers and Buddy Guy on guitar, the masterful Otis Spann on piano, and Willie Dixon on bass,
    Howlin' Wolf a/k/a The Rockin' Chair Album would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day
    Chicago blues history.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits Shake for Me, The Wolf continues to rock the listener through
    a treasure trove of 11 more blues standards which made this one of the most important blues LP's of all time. The
    album features classic gems like Spoonful, Back Door Man, Wang Dang Doodle and The Red Rooster. All of these
    blues rockers became truly a blueprint for a ton of rock and blues giants for years like Cream, The Doors and The
    Rolling Stones.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. That is why
    we are so very proud to announce our first installment in The Howlin' Wolf/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
    Series with his legendary masterpiece Howlin' Wolf.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry) for the first time on audiophile vinyl from the Chess monophonic tapes, Howlin' Wolf will truly become one of the most important and historical 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl titles to be released in quite some time.


    To further celebrate this first time authorized audiophile vinyl LP, we enhance this limited edition masterwork
    with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as rare inside gatefold photos of the
    man who helped fuse blues and rock music for millions of music lovers across the globe.

    Hoodoo Man Blues

    One of the all-time great urban blues records and the best-seller in the famed Delmark catalog. Hoodoo Man Blues is so full of bravado and snap it'll make you feel tough just listening to it. Not all of the Delmark titles were recorded very well, but this one certainly was. And at 45 RPM, this now stands as the undisputed definitive version. Hoodoo Man Blues, which features Buddy Guy on guitar, is not only Junior Wells' first LP appearance, it's damn near the first LP by a Chicago blues band. Chess and a few other labels had reissued 45s by Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, etc., but virtually no one had tried to capture the Chicago blues sound free of the limitations of juke box/airplay promotion. Hoodoo Man Blues went a long way in the popularization of real Chicago blues and of Junior Wells.

    Rhythm & Blues

    Double LP Features Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart And Aerosmith Members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry And Brad Whitford!


    Six-time Grammy Award winner and 2012 Kennedy Center Honoree Buddy Guy releases his studio album, Rhythm & Blues, on RCA Records. The follow-up to his 2010 Grammy Award winning album Living Proof, this double-disc masterpiece features first time studio collaborations with A-list artists Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart and Aerosmith members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford.


    Produced by Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge (Skin Deep, Living Proof), Rhythm & Blues captures the 76 year-young Guy at the peak of his creativity. Replete with heartfelt vocals, straightforward lyrics and mesmerizing guitar licks, Rhythm & Blues not only exemplifies how blues continues to be the foundation of all genres of today's music, it also illustrates why Guy has been influential in the careers of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more.


    The Rhythm disc includes rhythm and blues-style blues with deep grooves, such as the Junior Wells' 1960 hit "Messin With The Kid" featuring Kid Rock, the touching "One Day Away" with Keith Urban, and "What You're Gonna Do About Me," a rousing duet with Beth Hart. Guy rounds out the disc with "Best In Town," "Whiskey Ghost," Guitar Slim's "Well I Done Got Over It" and more.


    The Blues disc taps into the genre's rich history with "Meet Me In Chicago," "I Could Die Happy," "Never Gonna Change" and "All That Makes Me Happy Is The Blues." Aerosmith's Tyler, Perry and Whitford contribute to the musical lesson with "Evil Twin" while Gary Clark, Jr. joins Guy on "Blues Don't Care."


    In a career that spans nearly 50 years with over 50 albums released, the incomparable Buddy Guy recently added the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors and NARM Chairman's Award for Sustained Creative Achievement to his long list of achievements. Guy is the recipient of 30 awards and accolades, including 6 Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W. C. Handy Awards), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the first annual Great Performer of Illinois Award, a Billboard Music Awards' Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, the Presidential National Medal of Arts, in addition to being listed as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone.

    The Haden Triplets

    Third Man Records is proud to present the debut album from The Haden Triplets. These are songs steeped in history and sung in a close harmony
    that could only be achieved from sharing a lifetime of sisterly togetherness and a near psychic vocal interplay that can only come from being born mere
    seconds apart from each other. It's been rendered and produced beautifully by American music legend Ry Cooder.


    This is an album expanding on an American musical tradition. It is not pastiche or a tribute, but rather a direct antecedent and extension of the original folk legacy that is being exhibited within these songs.


    Here's a little more about it in the Haden's own words.


    During our early life, we were surrounded by music on both sides of our family. We visited our dad's family in Missouri, where they taught us old country songs they used to perform on the radio as The Haden Family. Our grandparents on our mother's side used to sing us to sleep with old Yiddish songs. Growing up, we often had music playing in the house, whether it be our mom playing Billie Holiday and Nina Simone records, or our dad playing Keith Jarrett and Ornette Coleman in the living room.


    We met Ry when we played with his son Joachim, and Joachim asked him if he'd sit in for our show. Once Ry heard we were singing "Voice From On High" by Bill Monroe, he was in right away. The next day we got a call from Ry suggesting we record an album. We wrote down a collection of songs we all liked, then narrowed it down to the music that became the Haden Triplets album. These songs are rich in history, and by recording them we hope to help keep them alive. - Tanya, Rachel & Petra Haden


    Produced by Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club, Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Paris, Texas)and mixed by Martin Pradler (Robbie Robertson, Mavis Staples, Buddy Guy)

    Stompin' Ground

    Over the course of his career, Tommy Castro has always been inspired by the sounds he absorbed while coming of age on the rough and tumble side of San Jose, California. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, this was Tommy's home turf-his stomping ground. It was a place where the street-tough Mexican Americans and the counterculture hippies came together to drink, smoke, laugh, party and listen to tunes-the hippies with their blues and rock, the Mexicans with their soul music. Mixing the blues-rock he loved and the soul music he heard blasting out from the lowriders cruising the streets, along with the socially conscious message songs of the day, Tommy's own sound was born.

    Almost every major rock and soul act, from Ike & Tina Turner to Janis Joplin to Elvin Bishop and Taj Mahal toured through the area, and Tommy was at almost every show. He saw John Lee Hooker, Albert King, and Buddy Guy & Junior Wells at the same local blues bar, JJ's, where he often jammed, honing his chops and dreaming of one day busting out. Tommy Castro has long since gone from that local bar to stages around the world, but his San Jose DNA still infuses his music to this day. You can hear it in every note of Stompin' Ground.

    Goin' Home

    In a 20-year recording career that began when he was just 16, Shepherd has established himself as an immensely popular recording artist, a consistently
    in-demand live act and an influential force in a worldwide resurgence of interest in the blues. Now, the five-time GRAMMY® nominee delivers one of his
    most personal projects to date with Goin' Home, his eighth album and his first to be recorded in his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana. Recorded in a
    mere 11 days, Goin' Home finds Shepherd revisiting a dozen of the vintage blues classics that first ignited his love of the blues and inspired him to play
    guitar. The artist's sharp interpretive skills and sublime guitar work shine on his renditions of tunes originally popularized by such blues icons as B.B. King,
    Albert King, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, Magic Sam, Johnny Guitar Watson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells.

    The Super Super Blues Band

    Limited Edition Pressing On Light Orange Opaque Vinyl


    Super Super Blues Band starter out merely as Super Blues, a conglomerate of blues pillars Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters and Little Walter. When Little Walter bowed out and was replaced by Howlin' Wolf, they rightfully threw another Super on the name, and went on to release this burning, irreverent and even sometimes hilarious set of drunken, wild-eyed electric blues. Long form jams roll on in a trance as the trio of blues legends flex egos, talking shit to each other, trading off leads and ducking blasts of unexpected wah-wah guitar lines. Songs are peppered with an incredible level of banter between the trio of bandleaders that predicts the call and response sing-talking of early hip hop, laced with random screams in the background that teeter between celebration and danger.


    That these three ever got into the same room together is a miracle, and that they produced something so intense, energetic and weird is another almost unbelievable feat. The record is special enough as a stand-alone document of this meeting/melting of the minds before you find out the backing band consists of Hubert Sumlin, Otis Spann, and freaking Buddy Guy. Lordy. Might have needed one more Super in there.
