    The Collected album by the Carpenters brings a beautiful collection from the immense popular soft-pop duo. From their humble beginnings in the late '60s until today, siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter are one of the most successful duos in musical history. With Karen's absolutely perfect vocal delivery and Richard's creative arrangements, they are unstoppable.


    This 2LP set inside a gatefold sleeve brings together their hits, album tracks and more. It delivers the best selection of easy listening songs in a nutshell. Glorious pop nuggets by the Carpenters will melt the heart and uplift the soul, including Close to You, Ticket to Ride, We've Only Just Begun, Superstar, Rainy Days And Mondays, Bless the Beasts And the Children, Hurting Each Other and many more.


    An Easter egg is the track Karen's Theme by Richard Carpenter, who dedicated this song to Karen after her tragical death in 1983.


    Producing a distinctively soft musical style, they became one of the best-selling music artists of all time. During their 14-year career, the Carpenters recorded 11 albums, 31 singles, five television specials, and a short-lived television series.


    The Carpenters had three No. 1 singles and five No. 2 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and fifteen No. 1 hits on the Adult Contemporary chart. In addition, they had twelve top 10 singles. To date, the Carpenters' album and single sales total more than 100 million units.

    Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998

    John Carpenter is a legend. As the director and composer behind dozens of classic movies, Carpenter has established a reputation as one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of modern cinema, as well as one of its most influential musicians. The minimal, synthesizer-driven themes to films like Halloween, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 are as indelible as their images, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter performed them live in a string of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016. Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 collects 13 classic themes from Carpenter's illustrious career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.
    1. In the Mouth of Madness
    2. Assault on Precinct 13
    3. The Fog
    4. Prince of Darkness
    5. Santiago (Vampires)
    6. Escape From New York

    Goodbye To Love

    Pressed On Translucent Gold Vinyl


    A sultry and sophisticated songbird. The ultra-rare debut and sole output of a wondrous and mysterious vocalist, perfectly accompanied by guitar icon Barney Kessel. An Early Stereo marvel from the original 1959 tapes!


    Kessel was a jazz pioneer -- as one of the leading lights of the hard-bop movement, his jazz guitar was legendary, and he was ranked the No. 1 guitarist in Down Beat and Playboy for numerous years. He played with Sonny Rollins and Oscar Peterson and Ella Fitzgerald as well as leading his own super-tight group. On albums such as The Poll Winners, Kessel defined the bop style with a jazz power trio, creating a body of work that made him a legend.


    Not much is known of Thompson -- even though the record's a long-time crate digger classic, she remains a mystery. But her stunning voice will knock you out -- sounding like the precedent of singers like Karen Carpenter, her no-nonsense, emotion-soaked singing carries marvelously a collection of standards including Stormy Weather and Body And Soul. Kessel's remarkable playing provides a sparkling backing for her vocals. The album has been pressed onto gold vinyl and wrapped in a restored sleeve that captures the beauty of the era.


    Claudia Thompson has a perfectly tuned, and wildly dramatic voice. Picture a female Chet Baker; you'll have to hear it to believe it.

    1. Some Of These Days
    2. Body And Soul
    3. If I Should Lose You
    4. Stormy Weather
    5. I'm Through With Love
    6. The Morning After
    7. Goodbye
    8. Blue Prelude
    9. You Call It Madness
    10. Fan Me
    11. I Was Yours
    12. Gloomy Sunday

    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).

    The Divine Miss M

    Numbered Limited Edition



    Midler's Grammy-Winning 1972 Debut Announces the Birth of a Superstar



    Record Overflows With Energy and Personality: Torch Songs, Girl-Group Classics, Campy Remakes, Theatrical Pieces Delivered With Supreme Emotion

    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI (Best Plant in North America): Midler's Voice Upfront and Centered, Every Nuance of Her Phrasing Laid Bare



    Oh, behave! Bette Midler's sparkling, energy-pulsing 1972 debut features the singer honing her trademark brassy personality as well as showing off an intimate, raw edge that fell by the wayside later in her career. Witness her forlorn, melancholic, and heartbroken moods, all conveyed with supreme emotion on several riveting ballads. But this LP is no downer. Midler offsets any bleakness with playfully campy songs laced with unadulterated enthusiasm and joyous defiance. This is a diva lover's delight. The music is astonishingly alive. A superstar is born!



    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI (the best record plant in North America), Silver Label numbered limited edition LP presents The Divine Miss M with the warmly cozy and front-row perspective that the music demands. Midler's voice is transparent and full, the timbrel shadings colorfully outlined, the vocal images appearing as if she's singing just a few feet away. Similarly, her cast of back-up vocalists (the Harlettes) receives ample face time on songs that come across as if performed by a girl-group revue. Midler has cut many records in her career but none are this entertaining, diversified, and, now, sonically spectacular.



    There's always risk associated with interpreting other artists' classics and hits, but Midler makes every song here her own. She injects Chapel of Love with extra swagger and feminine gusto. In her hands, the Carpenters' Superstar becomes more heartbreaking, filled with desolate sentiment and lonesome ache. John Prine's ballad Hello In There echoes, as if sung to an empty room, with forlorn emotion. The 50s smash Leader of the Pack positively stomps and declares, her band in tow, that she's not going to be stopped. Indeed, Midler's interpretations of these staples surpass the previous versions, mostly due to her impeccable strong vocals and contagious passion. She doesn't quit. And don't you dare decline her offer on Do You Want to Dance!



    What else can be said of her trademark Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, her update of the Andrews Sisters' jazzy hit landing in the Top 10, featuring a scat vocal (!), and smartly walking the line between campy fun and serious reverence. Similarly, Midler's two takes of Friends--the first off-the-cuff, wild, snappy, and humorous; the second slightly cooler and infused with gorgeous harmonies--remain modern marvels. There's not a bad note on this incredible record.



    The Divine Miss M has always been prized for its clear, clean production. Mobile Fidelity's Silver Series LP further improves the sound, which, in combination with Midler's performances, make this collectible reissue an absolute no-brainer!

    First Time Gatefold Cover Art Featuring Rare Color Photo Of The Legendary Man In Black From The Sony Music Archives

    Johnny Cash was born during the great depression into a poor family in Arkansas. At a very young age, he worked on the family farm and experienced many of life's struggles. This is also the time he would develop his love for music, family and the Bible, which followed him closely throughout his long career.

    In the early fifties after spending time in the Air Force, he moved to Memphis, became friends with folks like Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, and ultimately cut some sides at Sun Studios which became the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar, troubadour and humanitarian unlike the world has ever known.

    The folks at Columbia Records knew that this young fellow named Johnny Cash was destined for super stardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first singles like his Guess Things Happen That Way & Hey Porter etched The Man In Black trademark to his name.

    In 1971 after many chart-topping country and pop albums and a bevy of hit singles and Grammy Awards, more fame followed as the brass at Columbia Records honored their journeyman Johnny Cash with his 2nd greatest hits collection, the gold and platinum smash Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits Volume II.

    The album was a blockbuster as it hit the Top 5 in the charts, making this a crossover hit with both country and pop audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit. Filled with more hits than a roadside jukebox, the amazing album features his biggest hits like the groundbreaking Folsom Prison Blues and his Shel Silverstein classic A Boy Named Sue. The classic top charter duet with June Carter Cash If I Were A Carpenter is also included, followed up by one of his finest interpretations of his dear friend Kris Kristofferson's Sunday Mornin' Comin'Down.

    More treasures follow with the country belter Big River and Cash's gospel smash of Daddy Sang Bass, which truly continues the treasure trove of hits contained in this masterwork.

    In total, the album showcases eleven important Johnny Cash recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time.

    In honor of the Man, the Music and the Legend, Friday Music is very honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent Blue Vinyl release of the Columbia Records classic Johnny Cash Greatest Hits Volume II by Johnny Cash.

    The Underside Of Power

    Includes 12-Page Booklet Insert


    "This is revolutionary music in the truest sense of
    the word. It demands action. It requires penance. It
    destroys expectations." - Stereogum


    "The Death Grips of gospel torching the South's
    dark underbelly." - Rolling Stone


    This is the musical response that dark times demand, one
    that not only shakes its fist but deploys it. Locally-informed
    global citizens, Algiers refuse to sit idly by while most
    contemporary artists appear perfectly content to sit out the
    revolution. Not only do Algiers harbor a purposeful sense of
    obligation in what they do on their latest resistance record
    The Underside Of Power, but they recognize the roots and
    thorns of precedent in said resistance.


    Beyond the technical necessities living their respective lives
    both in and outside of music, Algiers' continued deviation
    from a more traditional band approach created a more
    versatile sound, one that better incorporates a collective
    and respective panoply of influences and styles.


    Some of this is informed by their choice of collaborators in
    this process, a crew that includes Adrian Utley [Portishead],
    Ben Greenberg [Uniform, The Men], Randall Dunn [Sunn
    0)))], among others. Pick any track off The Underside of
    Power and the reference points expand exponentially, a
    dizzying and thrilling Recommended-If-You-Like list that
    would consume a series of afternoons.


    Poke at the seasoned members' bruised flesh, and out
    come wafting touchpoints as disparate and intriguing as
    Big Black, Wendy Carlos, John Carpenter, Cybotron, The
    Four Tops, Portishead, Public Image Limited, Steve Reich,
    and Nina Simone, to name but a few. Deep echoes of Black
    Lives Matter and its 20th-century forebears gather, surge,
    and subside in their often soulful work, a form of principled,
    acute dissent more interested in learning from the past
    than in evoking nostalgia.

    2. Cry Of The Martyrs
    3. The Underside Of Power
