    The Best Of Solomon Burke (Limited Edition)

    The late great King of Rock N Soul Solomon Burke was an American original. His music has touched millions of faithful followers due to his angelic voice drenched in gospel, soul and rock and roll. Not only did he sell millions of records worldwide, but many superstar acts like The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty have also paid tribute to the man with their renditions of his classics over the years.



    In 1966, Atlantic Records assembled one truly amazing collection of hits, which has been out of print on vinyl for over four decades entitled The Best Of Solomon Burke. Featuring twelve of his most loved Atlantic Records era recordings from 1960 to 1966, the album boasts such soul classics as Cry To Me, Everybody Needs Someone To Love, Just Out Of Reach and Got To Get You Off My Mind.



    Friday Music now presents a limited edition 180g audiophile vinyl version of this incredible masterwork. Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA, The Best Of Solomon Burke is truly a classic soul masterpiece now impeccably revisited in the audiophile domain. These original sessions were produced by the legendary Jerry Wexler and Bert Berns, and engineered by Tom Dowd.



    For this special limited edition release, they have included all the original Loring Eutemey artwork restored faithfully as well as a poly sleeve to protect the cover and a poly lined LP sleeve to preserve the vinyl for years to come.

    Limited Pressing Of 500 Individually Numbered Copies On 180 Gram Yellow Vinyl


    On October 10, 2010, Solomon Burke passed away at Amsterdam Schiphol airport on his way to perform a gig with his Dutch collaborators De Dijk. What was supposed to be a release party for their album Hold On Tight then became a celebration of the life of the one true King of Rock 'n Soul.


    De Dijk, heroes of the Dutch music scene, and Solomon met and shared the stage while on tour in 2007, and they came up with the idea to record an album together. King Solomon was true to his word; De Dijk adapted a number of songs from their back catalogue for Solomon to sing, and they dove into the studio for what sadly turned out to be Solomon's last album.


    De Dijk's bluesy spin on soulful hard rock turned out to be a sweet musical match with Burke's powerful vocals, Hold On Tight is one of the truest Rock & Roll projects he worked on. As allmusic.com puts it: 'an impressive finale to a genuinely remarkable career'. The album features a contribution of Jools Holland on piano on What A Woman.


    Available on coloured vinyl for the first time, 500 individually numbered copies are pressed on yellow vinyl. Strictly limited!

    You Better Move / It's You I'll Miss

    Pressed On Translucent Red Vinyl


    Tampa, Florida legends the Tropics released a stack of great records in the sixties. But none of those singles is more coveted by garage collectors than their '66 masterpiece, "You Better Move;" a tambourine-bashing, harmonica-wailin,' epic screamer. With its super-threatening lyrics, delivered in a pathologically aggravated state by Tropics lead vocalist Mel Dryer, this record serves as a master class in anger mismanagement. "You Better Move, incidentally, was co-penned by guitarist Buddy Pendergrass and a former Tropic, Dave Burke (who soon appeared on two Standells albums on Tower). B-side "It's You I'll Miss" finds the versatile Tropics in a Byrds bag; with a jangly, expertly-sung original. This Sundazed single places the Tropics at the top of the list of '66 garage bands, from Florida or any corner of the US of A.

    Life, Love And Leaving

    Features The Previously Unreleased Album Outtake, ''This Old Heart'' (Originally By James Brown), Which Had Gone Unheard For Over 15 Years.


    Features Eddie Hawrsh (The Black Crowes) On Bass.


    Originally released in 2001, the Detroit Cobras Life, Love and Leaving is the group's best-known effort, coming at a time when bands like the White Stripes and Dirtbombs were also releasing seminal albums that started picking up recognition outside of their collective hometown of Detroit. Hitting hard with songs by soul heavyweights like Solomon Burke (''Stupidity''), Mary Wells (''Bye Bye Baby''), Otis Redding (''Shout Bamalama''), the inimitable vocals of Rachel Nagy would no-doubt be a template from which folks like Amy Winehouse would work from years later. A landmark collection of covers.

    Original 1980 Soundtrack


    First Pressing Of 2000 Numbered Copies On Blue Vinyl


    Comic actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd rightfully get credit for exposing many people to the music of Blues and R&B veterans. The soundtrack to their hugely successful musical comedy Blues Brothers was released on June 20, 1980 as the second album by the Blues Brothers Band, which also toured that year to promote the film.


    The rollicking remake of the Spencer Davis Group's Gimme Some Lovin' was a Billboard Top 20 hit, featuring an arrangement notable for the horn section that replaces Steve Winwood's rumbling organ work. Ray Charles has a good time with Shake a Tail Feather, and he's helped out by Jake and Elwood Blues (Belushi and Aykroyd, respectively). The cover of Solomon Burke's Everybody Needs Somebody to Love is a lot of fun, thanks to the great overall rhythm and Elwood's lightning-fast stage rap, while James Brown and the Reverend James Cleveland Choir provide a blast of gospel music on Old Landmark. Aretha Franklin's Think is explosive, and Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher is slyly irresistible.

    Remastered


    Prophet started his wild ride back in 1984, when Green on Red, the
    seminal purveyors of American Rock-Roots, plucked him out of
    Berkeley, CA and threw him in the van for an eight-year ride, and the
    recording of as many albums. Since then Prophet has recorded nine
    amazing solo albums and toured and recorded with the likes of
    Lucinda Williams, Aimee Mann, Cake, and Jonathan Richman, not to
    mention production credits for Warren Zevon, Alejandro Escovedo
    and Kelly Willis. Ryan Adams, Solomon Burke and Heart have
    recorded his songs, along with a host of others. Prophet has never
    been one to rest on his laurels and ride it out.
    For his ninth solo album Let Freedom Ring, Chuck reached out to
    some musicians and talked them into going down to Mexico City, The
    Biggest City in the World (pop. 25 million). Recorded at Estudio 19, a
    state-ofthe- art studio (well, circa 1958 state-of-the-art anyway) with
    Greg Leisz (Beck, Wilco, Emmylou Harris) coproducing.
    Within three days of arriving swine flu broke out and the indignity of
    having to wear blue surgical masks just to fit in.
    Over the course of the next eight days, the band set about recording
    ¡Let Freedom Ring!, enduring a poorly timed blackout, shakedowns
    by the Policia, and a 6.4 earthquake mid-take - Mexico City might only
    be 4 hours away by plane but it might as well have been on the other
    side of the moon. But whilst mayhem ensued, the band buckled down
    to the task in hand, all set up together in a tight little bamboo lined
    room with the amps cranked. Chuck played his Fender Squire, Kelly
    Stoltz on backing vocals, Rusty Miller (Jason Lyte‟s band) played
    bass while Drummer Ernest Boom Carter turned his sticks into
    kindling. Carter played on Springsteen‟s Born To Run - he promptly
    quit the E Street Band after they spent 6 months recording it. The
    results can be heard from the Clash inspired opener to the power pop
    of Let Freedom Ring‟ and the Eddie Cochran infused Good Time
    Crowd‟.

    Pollinator

    You catch yourself when you ask Debbie Harry and Chris Stein,
    one of the most captivating creative pairings in music ever, about the
    creeping gentrification of New York City. You catch yourself because
    Blondie was formed during a 1970s era of urban decay - a time when
    the travails of being in a band, seeking an artistic outlet, or instigating a
    scene as a means of existence was a survival of the fittest among streets
    of heightened crime and social unrest. Certainly, those 1970s New
    York streets have been glamourised in the onslaught of retrospective
    looks at the punk, new wave, disco and hip-hop scenes that found their
    fundamental roots in that era. But it certainly wasn't an easier time to
    live there. The challenges and intensity of the city were just different.


    Blondie emerged the fittest. They've outlived the groundbreaking moment
    that birthed them and have adapted to time, space and industry
    evolution as much as the face of New York itself. Walk into any dance
    club tonight and hear a 'Call Me' or a 'Heart Of Glass'. Talk to
    any hip-hop historian and recall that Debbie was an original Beastie
    Boy who took rap music to the masses when it was still a block party
    concern. Read any tome on the history of punk and they're interwoven
    into the fabric of the one genre that still inspires most and every
    band to pick a name and find a practice space. Their active presence
    in our lives 40 million albums sales and countless accolades later
    (including a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2006 and
    NME Godlike Genius Award in 2014) isn't something anyone wants
    to take advantage of.


    That's what their 11th album 'Pollinator' sets out to establish. In true
    pop art fashion it's as post-modern as a concept gets and the perfect
    way to move on from 2014's 40th anniversary celebrations and the
    subsequent release of 'Ghosts Of Download'. In 'Pollinator' exists a
    giant feedback loop - one in which Blondie created, then generations
    were inspired, then those generation created and inspired, and are
    now teaming up with Blondie. When the time came for Chris, Debbie
    and drummer Clem Burke to "get the band back together" and make
    an album, choice pioneers from the decades since Blondie's birth
    were called upon to contribute songs for the record, thereby weaving
    their own way into the living, breathing story of the band, a group that
    directly affected their own genetic makeup. The list is enviable and
    reflects the dynamism of Blondie's very own cross-pollinating past:
    Johnny Marr, Sia, Dev Hynes, Charli XCX, Dave Sitek (TV On
    The Radio), Nick Valensi (The Strokes) and The Gregory Brothers
    all lent their creations for Blondie to interpret, each building upon the
    aspect of their heroes that's bolstered their own sound.

    Guest Appearances By Solomon Burke, RubÉn Blades A.O.


    American guitarist and songwriter Derek Trucks had played with such artists as Bob Dylan, Joe Walsh and Stephen Stills by his twentieth birthday. After performing with The Allman Brothers Band for several years as a guest musician, Trucks became a formal member of the band in 1999 and appeared on 4 of their albums.


    Trucks officially formed The Derek Trucks Band in 1996. The album Joyful Noise features guests including his wife Susan Tedeschi (with who he formed The Tedeschi Trucks Band in 2010), Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and soul artist Solomon Burke. Derek is best known for his slide guitar style and plays an eclectic blend of blues, soul, jazz, rock and world music. The Derek Trucks Band won an Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Already Free [MOVLP1395] in 2010.

    Sub Pop is proud to present Shearwater's Animal Joy, our first album by the band and their eighth overall. Led by Jonathan Meiburg, and featuring drummer Thor Harris, and bassist Kimberly Burke, Shearwater has been a favorite at Sub Pop HQ for years. On Animal Joy, Meiburg ditches the expansive approach of his recent records - particularly the epic trilogy of Palo Santo, Rook and The Golden Archipelago - to create a record that seems shockingly direct, immediate and intensely personal. He's no stranger to lush, crafted recordings, but this one sounds like no prior Shearwater incarnation.

    Movin' and Groovin' (45RPM)

    This 1960 trio date was pianist Parlan's first of many great releases for Blue Note. The Pittsburgh native, who overcame polio as a child that left his right hand crippled, had gained some serious props with his contributions on two of Charles Mingus' best albums the year prior (Mingus Ah Um, Blues And Roots), and was now ready to step out on his own. Choosing to tackle mostly standards, Parlan channels his idol Bud Powell's classic trio dates with the able assistance of Blue Note regulars Sam Jones, bass and drummer Al Harewood. The result is an eclectic mix, interpreting the works of Tadd Dameron, Duke Ellington, Milt Jackson and Burke-Van Heussen plus a Parlan original, Up In Cynthia's Room, which became one of his signature pieces.

    Bonnie Raitt's new album Slipstream is daring, bluesy and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could only be hers. Slipstream marks her first new release in seven years, and the debut for her newly minted label, Redwing Records.


    While most of Slipstream is self-produced and features Raitt's longtime touring band, four of the album's songs were helmed by celebrated producer Joe Henry (Allen Toussaint, Solomon Burke) and showcase his unusual crew of extraordinary musicians. Additional guests include Bill Frisell, Al Anderson (NRBQ), Ireland's Paul Brady and Maia Sharp.


    The album's 12-tracks feature Raitt's renditions of songs by such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Joe Henry and Loudon Wainwright III. An updated, reggae-fied version of Gerry Rafferty's Right Down the Line leads the charge here as the album's first single.

    BeyoncÉ is the fifth studio album by American recording artist BeyoncÉ.


    The 14-song collection features Drunk In Love, a new collaboration with husband Jay Z; Mine, featuring Drake; Superpower, with her I Miss You collaborator Frank Ocean; and Blue, a song with her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.


    Every song on the album has also been given a video, all of which are included as a DVD. Grown Woman, a promotional cut that Beyonce performed during her Mrs. Carter world tour this year, appears as a bonus video, but did not make the album's track list.


    The collaborators on the album vary from the indie and unexpected (Chairlift's Caroline Polacheck co-wrote and produced the slinky No Angel, Sia wrote touching opener Pretty Hurts while a mysterious writer-producer credited as Boots is listed on half the album's tracks as a co-writer) to first-time collabs with Miguel (Rocket), Drake and Noah 40 Shebib (Mine), Hit-Boy (Bey Reel) and Frank Ocean (Superpower) to reunions with Ryan Tedder and The-Dream (XO), Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Timbaland (Blow).


    Directors featured on the music videos include Detail, Jake Nava, Hype Williams, Terry Richardson, Melina Matsoukas, Jonas Åkerlund, Ricky Saiz, Pierre Debusschere, @lilinternet, Francesco Carrozzini, Ed Burke, Bill Kirstein and Todd Tourso. Grown Woman, initially previewed via Pepsi's global spot with Beyonce in April, is featured as a bonus video-only cut, directed by Jake Nava.

    The Best Of Wilson Pickett

    The great Wilson Pickett will be forever known as one of the original classic soul pioneers who had a knack of mastering funk grooves drenched in soul, rock and pop. He made some of the greatest sides ever for Atlantic, where he spent almost two decades creating some of the grittiest sold music ever waxed.


    In 1967, Wilson 'The Wicked' Pickett was honored with his first greatest hits collection by Atlantic Records simply titled The Best Of Wilson Pickett. This stunning array of his hit singles, most of them backed by Booker T. and The M.G.'s, dominated the upper rungs of the soul and pop charts for over a year.


    The man was important in bridging all types of rhythm and blues music to a much wider audience, churning out not only soul smashes but pop masterpieces. Most of his biggest hits have been covered by contemporaries like The Rascals, Solomon Burke, Jackie Wilson, The Supremes, B.B. King, Mitch Ryder and Bryan Ferry, just to name a few.

This top ten charting 1967 LP hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades, that is until now!

    The Original Atlantic Soul Masters 180g Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues..


    As a young teenager growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, Booker T. Jones had the amazing talent to play a number of instruments and he played them well.

It was during this time he met up with future guitar legend Steve Cropper and drummer great Al Jackson and later formed the Stax wrecking crew known as Booker T. & The M.G.s.

    Trying To Live My Life Without You

    Otis Clay is one of the premier deep soul and gospel singers working today. His raw, fiery vocals drive an energetic and danceable blend of soul, r&b and blues in the tradition of such deep soul singers as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Solomon Burke.


    A master showman, Otis Clay stays in demand for festival and concert appearances in the U.S., Europe and Japan. Noteworthy recent appearances include headlining The 2006 Japan Blues and Soul Festival Tour, headlining the opening night and being Honorary President of The 2006 Blues Passions Festival in Cognac, France a special guest appearance at The Chicago Emmy Awards in Nov., 2006 and the 2007 Chicago Gospel Music Festival.


    Born in Waxhaw, Mississippi, Clay began his career in gospel singing with groups such as The Pilgrim Harmonizers, The Gospel Songbirds and the legendary Sensational Nightingales. His recording of When The Gates Swing Open was a hit in the mid-80's and is included on The Gospel Truth cd released on Blind Pig Records. Both When The Gates Swing Open and The Gospel Truth remain staples on gospel radio today. As a singer and producer, Otis Clay remains very active in gospel. Walk A Mile In My Shoes, a new cd featuring Otis' version of this classic song has been released on his own Echo Records label.


    Clay launched and established his career as a deep soul singer with his first recordings made in the mid-60s for George Leaner's One-derful label in Chicago. A series of hit singles including Trying To Live My Life Without You produced by Willie Mitchell in Memphis for Hi Records followed in the '70's. Otis has also recorded for the Cotillion, Kayvette, Elka and Rounder labels as well as his own Echo Records. The intensity and passion of his live shows are captured on Soul Man: Live in Japan (Rounder) and Respect Yourself (Blind Pig) recorded live at The Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland.


    A long time resident of Chicago's West Side, Otis Clay is actively involved as a board member of People For New Direction, a community-based non-profit creating economic initiatives to address a number of issues on the West Side. People For New Direction consists of West Side businessmen and women, doctors, ministers and others who believe strongly in giving something back to the community where they live and work.


    As Chairman of The Board of the non-profit Tobacco Road, Inc. (TRI, Inc.), Otis was heavily involved in the extensive planning, fundraising and development of The Harold Washington Cultural Center at 47th and King Drive which has served as the cornerstone for the revitalization and redevelopment of the historic Bronzeville neighborhood. The Cultural Center, which includes the state-of-the-art 1,000 seat Com-Ed Performing Arts Theatre, is built on the former site of The Regal Theatre, the legendary venue for national and Chicago-based r&b/soul, blues, jazz and comedy stars.


    Whether bringing audiences around the globe to their feet with his fiery brand of soul and gospel or working tirelessly with community and church leaders to provide better economic and cultural opportunities for West and South Side Chicago residents, Otis Clay has proven himself to be a national treasure.

    Genius Loves Company (10th Anniversary) (Awaiting Repress)

    Upon its release in 2004, few could have predicted the extraordinary, game-changing effect that Ray Charles' final recording would have on both his career and the industry as a whole. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the legend's milestone recording, Concord/Hear Music will release a special 2LP, 45RPM, 180-gram Vinyl Edition.


    One of Charles' most inspirational and historically significant albums, Genius Loves Company captures the genius of the music icon in his last studio recording pairing him with legendary guest artists including Norah Jones, Diana Krall, James Taylor, Elton John, Willie Nelson and Bonnie Raitt to name a few. The album went on to receive an astounding 8 GRAMMY® Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. To help launch a then-groundbreaking consumer marketing campaign, Genius Loves Company was tapped as the first original release through the Starbucks Hear Music imprint in conjunction with Concord Music Group. Since its release on August 31st, 2004, Genius Loves Company has been certified multi-platinum with worldwide sales in excess of 5 million copies.


    Produced by John Burk, Concord Music Group's chief creative officer, and co-produced by the legendary Phil Ramone, Genius Loves Company garnered critical acclaim upon its release. NPR All Things Considered hailed, "It's got flashes of fire you wouldn't expect from such a setting, gems of phrasing that remind you how Ray Charles transformed the wreckage of heartbreak into poignant sound," and Rolling Stone added, "the tone is reverential and warm, as the Genius sings "


    "Ray was shocked that these people wanted to sing with him," recalls Ray Charles Foundation president Valerie Ervin. "He just didn't understand the magnitude of where he was in the industry. As weak as he became he made sure he gave his best for every artist that was there for him."


    "Ray Charles was one of those rare artists who, throughout his incredible career, had far-reaching impact that forever changed the conventions of popular music as well as the music business," said Concord Music Group chief creative officer John Burk. "Looking back at the last 10 years, it's clear that this album was certainly no exception. We are humbled, honored and blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such a musical giant, and we are eternally grateful to Ray for elevating both Concord Records and Hear Music to new heights, far beyond our wildest dreams ten years ago."

    The Beatles: On Air - Live At The BBC Volume 2


    Features 63 Tracks Total With 37 Previously Unreleased Performances And 23 Tracks Of In-Studio Banter


    Includes a 48 Page Booklet With Rare Photos And An Introduction By Paul McCartney


    In 1994, The Beatles' Live at the BBC was released to worldwide acclaim - hitting number one in the U.K., number three in the U.S. and selling more than five million copies within six weeks. A new companion to The Beatles' first BBC collection, On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2, in 180-gram vinyl with a 48-page booklet. On Air's 63 tracks, none of which overlaps with The Beatles' first BBC release, include 37 previously unreleased performances and 23 previously unreleased recordings of in-studio banter and conversation between the band's members and their BBC radio hosts.


    In the studios of the British Broadcasting Corporation, The Beatles performed music for a variety of radio shows. On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2 presents the sound of The Beatles seizing their moment to play for the nation. Thrilled to hear these exciting recordings again, Paul McCartney said, "There's a lot of energy and spirit. We are going for it, not holding back at all, trying to put in the best performance of our lifetimes."


    Ten of On Air's songs were never recorded by the group for EMI in the 1960s, including two making their debuts with the new release: The Beatles' direct-to-air performance of Chuck Berry's "I'm Talking About You" and a rocking cover of the standard "Beautiful Dreamer." On Air also includes different versions of six rarities heard on the 1994 BBC collection: Little Richard's "Lucille," Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee," Chan Romero's "The Hippy Hippy Shake," Ray Charles' "I Got A Woman," and two songs they learned from records by Carl Perkins, "Glad All Over" and "Sure To Fall."


    The Beatles' tribute to the BBC's most important pop show of the early '60s - "Happy Birthday, Dear Saturday Club" - is another surprise. As John Lennon recalled in 1980, "We did a lot of tracks that were never on record for Saturday Club - they were well recorded, too." Paul remembers, "We'd been raised on the BBC radio programs. One of the big things in our week was Saturday Club - this great show was playing the kind of music we loved, so that was something we really aspired to."


    Between March 1962 and June 1965, no fewer than 275 unique musical performances by The Beatles were broadcast by the BBC in the U.K. The group played songs on 39 radio shows in 1963 alone. Ringo Starr said in 1994, "You tend to forget that we were a working band. It's that mono sound. There were usually no overdubs. We were in at the count-in and that was it. I get excited listening to them." On their busiest BBC day, July 16, 1963, The Beatles recorded 18 songs for three editions of their Pop Go The Beatles series in fewer than seven hours.


    The group played 88 distinct songs in their BBC sessions - some were recorded many times; others performed just once. At the time, three national BBC stations provided all daytime radio broadcasting in the U.K. Only the Light Programme network might occasionally play a record. Most broadcast music was live music. Consequently, to promote their releases, The Beatles had to play live at the BBC. "Everything was done instantly," remembered George Harrison, "But before that, we used to drive 200 miles in an old van down the M1, come into London, try and find the BBC and then set up and do the program. Then we'd probably drive back to Newcastle for a gig in the evening!"


    On Air also features BBC recordings of 30 well-loved songs from The Beatles' catalogue, including five number on¬es and other favorites such as: "I Saw Her Standing There," "Twist And Shout," "Do You Want To Know A Secret," "Boys," "Please Mister Postman," "Money," "And I Love Her," and "If I Fell."


    Like its critically acclaimed predecessor, On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2 includes audio of The Beatles talking to DJs Brian Matthew and Alan Freeman and Pop Go The Beatles hosts Lee Peters and Rodney Burke. When first broadcast, pop fans were amazed to hear such witty irreverence on the rather formal BBC and it is great fun to hear these extracts now. In addition, On Air releases, for the first time, the group's candid interviews for the Pop Profile series recorded in November 1965 and May 1966.


    Newly remastered for reissue on November 11, The Beatles' first Live at the BBC album sounds and looks better than ever. This collection of the group's BBC sessions mixed versions of their hits with a treasure trove of 30 songs The Beatles performed on air but never released on record in the 1960s. The compelling track list ranged from a rare performance of the little known Lennon-McCartney original "I'll Be On My Way" to covers of classic rock 'n' roll and contemporary rhythm and blues songs. At the time of its release, Live at the BBC was hailed by Rolling Stone as "an exhilarating portrait of a band in the process of shaping its own voice and vision." It earned a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Historical Album.


    Live at the BBC was assembled by George Martin in 1994 and On Air - Live at the BBC Volume Two was compiled and researched by producers Kevin Howlett and Mike Heatley. Both albums have been meticulously mastered by engineers Guy Massey and Alex Wharton at Abbey Road Studios. The booklets for both collections include Kevin Howlett's essays on the history of The Beatles' BBC radio sessions and his detailed commentaries on all of the tracks.
