    Pressed On Red Colored Vinyl


    Hailed in advance by Rolling Stone as a "euphoric blast of experimental pop", Beck's 13th album Colors has been confirmed for release via Capitol Records. Possibly the most aptly titled work in Beck's storied discography, Colors unfolds in an intoxicating rainbow of auditory tricks and treats, making it a summery smash for the fall season.


    Colors is Beck's first full-length offering of new material since 2014's Gold-certified Morning Phase took Album of the Year top honors at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, as well as Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) category. In addition to the new single "Dear Life", Colors includes both Beck singles that preceded it: a new mix of the psych-dance summer jam "Dreams" that NPR hailed as "urgently contemporary and irresistibly vintage", and the retro-futuristic earworm "Wow" that had Stereogum praising its "big, sweet incandescent hook" and plainly stating "It's a great song!" while Esquire rejoiced "All hail the return of Party Beck".


    Colors was produced by Greg Kurstin and Beck, with the exception of "Wow" produced by Beck and Cole M.G.N., and "Fix Me" produced by Beck. The album was mixed by Serban Ghenea, except "Dreams" and "Up All Night," which were mixed by Greg Kurstin and Beck.

    Colors

    BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME have built their reputation as one of hard rock's most inventive and ambitious bands. Sharing a lineage with such luminaries as Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Tool, they continue to explore new territory with a genuine passion to push themselves and their audience.

    Colors, the band's fourth album, is a sonic labyrinth of grand proportion. It's an organism completely in its own class and at the nerve center is a band that encourages the listener to take the bold ride from beginning to end. The record is a continuous movement of savage metal, lush prog-rock and stimulating mood that morphs into some of the most forward thinking music today. Yet for a record that is so fierce and complex, it is also engaging and comfortable. It challenges the myths of what we expect from modern rock, demonstrating just how much potential there is in a band and the people who experience their craft.

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack


    Back In Print On Red Vinyl


    For the 1975 film version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, American producer Lou Adler wisely mixed the best of the London and Los Angeles stage versions, shooting the movie in England with Tim Curry and several of the other original cast members, plus Meatloaf (years before Bat Out of Hell), and Americans Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon as the innocent couple Brad and Janet. Adler also brought back original London stage musicians in place of the slick studio musicians who had marred the L.A. cast album. The film version resequenced the songs and reassigned some of the vocals, with Brad's song Once in a While dropped. But it all worked out fine. The strings that were added to ballads like Science Fiction/Double Feature only improved them; the rockers rocked out; Bostwick and Sarandon proved to be the best Brad and Janet ever; the original cast members, especially Curry, reveled in the opportunity to immortalize their portrayals; and Rocky Horror's potential as a witty parody of cheap movies, rock & roll, and sexual mores was fully realized. The film soundtrack album became the definitive version of the score, despite lacking the songs Planet Shmanet Janet and The Sword of Damocles. The Rocky Horror Picture Show was not successful in its initial theatrical run, but then a strange thing happened. In 1976, the Waverly Theater in New York's Greenwich Village began showing the film at midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Soon, a cult of repeat viewers began turning up every week; they began to dress like the characters, call out their own comments at strategic moments, sing along, and add their own theatrical effects. The phenomenon spread across the U.S., with fans rivaling Trekkies and Deadheads for loyalty and eccentricity, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show took on a life Richard O'Brien never could have anticipated.

    The Blues Brothers Original Soundtrack (Colored Vinyl)

    Limited Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent 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.

    Appetite For Adrenochrome

    Colored Vinyl


    Step back into our little rock and roll time machine.... don't worry, we're not going TOO far back, let's say how about 25 years? To a time when a younger Kepi Ghoulie rounded up a bunch of guys named John (yes, John Vetter on bass, John Rudgers on guitar, John Sosa on drums) and drove from L.A. to Sacramento to record his FIRST FULL LENGTH recording as the GROOVIE GHOULIES! (recorded by a guy named John, no less!) Recorded in two days (yes TWO DAYS, all musical tracks were laid down on a Saturday, vocals and mixing on Sunday), the band rehearsed and recorded the entire album in the sequence that you hear it on the record, to save time and money and be as prepared as they could! Listen closely and you will hear anywhere from two to five songs connect musically without any interruption whatsoever! A crash course in 80's rock, punk, garage, and underground/indie pop, Appetite For Adrenochrome reflects the urgency of a bunch of young bucks trying to get their message out, and also is a fun little time capsule of the mad, mish-mash of music that was going on in Los Angeles at the time, with bands like Redd Kross, Haunted Garage, Celebrity Skin, and up-and-comers L7 and GWAR... The Groovie Ghoulies played showsand found camaraderie in these like minded, go-all-out, fellow rock bands. This era also found them playing great events, like a Herschell Gordon Lewis (2,000 Maniacs) film fest/lecture, years before Rob Zombie and the Ramones started hosting events in the Hollywood Forever cemetery. The Groovie Ghoulies have always been a bit of Hollywood Outsiders, never quite fitting in to certain genres and pigeon-shaped holes, and with Appetite For Adrenochrome, you can kind of see the evolution of little Kepi taking his home made drum machine recordings out of the basement and to the streets with the first semi-solid, fully electric line up of a musical legacy that lasts until this day! Enjoy!

    Transatlanticism: 10th Anniversary Edition


    Reissued For Its 10th Anniversary After Being Out Of Print For Years.


    Comes With 12-page Full-color Booklet


    As musical lunacy goes, things have gotten as crazy as it gets for Death Cab for Cutie since 2002's You Can Play These Songs with Chords compilation. A wildly successful tour with Dismemberment Plan, a collaboration for singer Ben Gibbard with emo-electronic guru Dntel under the Postal Service moniker, and a whole new legion of fans swooning to Gibbard's lyrics as if he were a modern day answer to Kiss Me-era Robert Smith have all amassed considerable hype around Transatlanticism.


    But the group proves themselves more than equal to the task, answering the call and proving the cynics wrong with their most focused and most mature work in their entire catalog. Transatlanticism wastes absolutely no time and dives in head first with The New Year, one of the most melodramatic openings to an album since the Smashing Pumpkins' Tonight, Tonight from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. The mellow, mixed-meter percussion and dense atmosphere of Lightness is a brilliant lead into the pop-happy Expo '86 and The Sound of Settling before setting up the climatic and intensely dramatic title track. Unconsciously taking a page from Blur's Sing, the hypnotic drumming and guitar call and responses through the eight-minute climax of the album are backed with a singalong finale that unquestionably will have every audience on the next tour singing along and holding up their lighters.


    And while most albums would be left exhausted after such a track, the group keeps things moving, albeit at a much slower pace than compared to the anthems that packed the first half. Gibbard seamlessly makes the transition between songs that full out rock to songs that are comparable to Elliott Smith's finest hour with great ease. But it's Gibbard's poetic lyrics and signature introspection that remain a bench mark for Death Cab; and it's the group's maturity as musicians as well as songwriters that make Transatlanticism such a decadently good listen from start to finish. The band has never sounded more cohesive, the track sequencing is brilliant, and it caps off a triumphant year for not only Gibbard, but a band whose time and greater recognition is finally due.

    Many Colored Kite


    Many Colored Kite is the follow-up to his 2007 personal milestone Salvation Blues, a soul-searching album of loss and change that further cemented Olsons reputation as one of the true heroes of the folk/roots scene. The album was a New York Times critics pick and received rave reviews for its autobiographical, often painful songs. Its a hopeful Olson that greets the listener on Many Colored Kite, with its earthy, neo-folk feel that encompasses classic and 60s British folk as well as the desert country hes been associated with in the past.


    The opening track, Little Bird of Freedom (with backing vocals by Jolie Holland), sets the tone of the album: these are songs by a man whos made it through the eye of the tempest and is looking at the world as if hes seeing it for the first time. Elsewhere Many Colored Kites airy, uncluttered songs celebrate life and nature (Wind and Rain, Morning Dove) and love (Blue Bell, No Time to Live Without Her featuring Vashti Bunyan). Produced, mixed and engineered by Beau Raymond (Devendra Banhart, Little Joy, Mark Olson and Gary Louris) and featuring the core group of Olson, Neal Casal and Danny Frankel, this is a wide-eyed, uplifting album with soaring, ethereal harmonies contributed by Ingunn Ringvold.

    Nosebleed Weekend (Bruisy Colored Vinyl)

    Limited Edition Of 1,000 Copies On Bruisy Colored Vinyl


    Nosebleed Weekend kicks off with Perfume, a song that marries sultry pop vocals with toothy guitar riffs in a manner that would make Ann and Nancy Wilson proud. It's hard to imagine The Coathangers writing a song this accessible in their early years, but in 2016 it fits perfectly into their canon. From there the band launches into Dumb Baby, which harkens back to the gritty neo-garage rock of Murder City Devils. Longtime fans who still clamor for their brash post-punk angle will be immediately satiated by Squeeki Tiki. And after hearing the noisy loud-quiet-loud bombast of Excuse Me? it's no wonder that Kim Gordon has become an outspoken fan of the band. It's an eclectic album inspired by life on the road, lost loved ones, and Kugel's recent move to Southern California. We always say that each record is a snapshot of our life at the time, Kugel says. As far as style... it's just what came out of us at that point. So whether it's the foreboding garage rock of the title track, the post-punk groove of Burn Me, the stripped-down pop of I Don't Think So, or the dynamic grunge of Down Down, The Coathangers command their songs with passion and authority.

    The Way and Color

    Pivoting from the melodic psych of their previous efforts, TEEN's
    second full-length The Way And Color shows the young group
    condently shifting direction with their distinctly modern,
    R&B-informed pop.


    Searching for inspiration following their last album, the band's
    three sisters - lead singer Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie
    Lieberson and drummer Katherine Lieberson - found direction
    from a simple lineup tweak, joining with bassist Boshra AlSaadi
    to mine a new side of the band's sound.
    What emerged was the ambitious scope of The Way And Color.
    Recorded over a ten-day session in upstate New York, the band
    infuses their brooding pop with minimalist beats and complex
    harmonies, inspired by D'Angelo and Erykah Badu's classic
    R&B.


    Amidst the album's rich patchwork, Teeny emerges as a
    expressive, inspired frontwoman, touching on themes of
    relationships, womanhood and power. The record's crisp
    production from Daniel Schlett (DIIV) showcases her voice's
    stylistic agility, from the theatrical vamping of "Rose 4 U" to the
    twisting, soulful "More Than I Ask For." Toying with genre, TEEN
    successfully trades in the reverb for a punchy clarity and
    newfound maturity.

    Every Color Of Darkness

    It has been four years since Guillermo S. Herren released
    anything significant from his most famous and respected
    moniker, Prefuse 73 (though he did keep busy with live
    shows, collaborations, and remixes). That's a long time for
    virtually any artist, but it's an eternity for Herren, whose first
    three Prefuse 73 albums dropped in the span of four years.
    As if to make up for lost time, 2015 will see the release of
    not one, but three major works from Prefuse 73. After
    several albums that saw Herren progressively drift away
    from the beatmaking prowess that made him synonymous
    with emotionally resonant, damaged hip-hop, he's found
    himself reinvigorated - thanks in large part to an emotionally
    draining, creatively cashed few years. As Herren puts it, I've
    come back to hyper focusing - immersing myself in the
    sounds, rhythms, and formations that created Prefuse 73 in
    the first place. Recently, I've found a new life in the whole
    process of refining what I've created over the years as
    "Prefuse". Right now I'm at my most confident and
    comfortable since 05/06.


    It shows. The conclusion of a triptych of new recordings,
    Every Color of Darkness basks in the darkest corners of
    Prefuse 73's world, finding an eerie romanticism in manic
    beats and damaged jazz. It's a record that showcases his
    uncanny ability to excavate and exploit a source of light
    buried in pitch black.


    For an artist who has played an undeniably integral role in
    the careers of so many influential artists - from MF Doom
    to Battles to Flying Lotus - it's not just refreshing to hear
    him return to top form...it's revelatory.

    No Name No Color

    Middle Class Ruts two members, Sean and Zack, have been playing together since they were teenagers, camping out in Zacks moms house in Sacramento to write and record their songs. The duo's first band, Leisure, dissolved in early 2003 after a few false starts, sending Zack to work construction and Sean to labor as a studio runner in LA. But they soon realized stopping wasnt an option. Sean moved back to Sacramento and Zack began driving up every weekend from LA to write and rehearse music. After a year of commuting up and down the California coast, Zack relocated as well, solidifying a future for the pairs new band, Middle Class Rut.



    The band has spent the past four years crafting new songs and allowing the style and sound of their project to evolve and establish itself. The pair records every song they write together almost immediately in their rehearsal space, capturing the instantaneous spirit of a track while still in the moment. This means that each number is imbued with a distinct sense of urgency, almost like a snapshot of the moment of inspiration. The bands debut, No Name No Color, is a collection of these recordings, which they elected to use rather than attempt to recreate the spark of the original tracks later in a studio.

    Color Changes (Pure Pleasure)

    Possessor of the happiest sound in jazz, flÜgelhornist Clark Terry always plays music that is exuberant, swinging, and fun. A brilliant (and very distinctive) soloist, he gained early experience playing trumpet in the viable St. Louis jazz scene of the early '40s (where he was an inspiration for Miles Davis) and, after performing in a Navy band during World War II, he gained a strong reputation playing with the big band of Charlie Barnet (1947-1948), the orchestra and small groups of Count Basie (1948-1951), and particularly with Duke Ellington (1951-1959). Terry, a versatile swing/bop soloist who started specializing on flÜgelhorn in the mid-'50s, had many features with Ellington (including Perdido) and started leading his own record dates during that era. He recorded regularly in the 1960s including a classic set with the Oscar Peterson Trio and several dates with the quintet he co-led with valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer.



    This is one of flÜgelhornist Clark Terry's finest albums. Terry had complete control over the music and, rather than have the usual jam session, he utilized an octet and arrangements by Yusef Lateef, Budd Johnson, and Al Cohn. The lineup of musicians lives up to its potential, and the charts make good use of the sounds of these very individual stylists. The material, which consists of originals by Terry, Duke Jordan, Lateef, and Bob Wilber, is both rare and fresh, and the interpretations always swing.




    Musicians:



    • Clark Terry (trumpet, fluegel horn)

    • Jimmy Knepper (trombone)

    • Julius Watkins (french horn)

    • Yusef Lateef (tenor saxophone, flute; english horn, oboe)

    • Seldon Powell (tenor saxophone, flute)

    • Tommy Flanagan, Budd Johnson (piano)

    • Joe Benjamin (bass)

    • Ed Shaughnessy (drums)




    Recording: November 1960 at Nola Penthouse Studios, New York City, by Bob d'Orleans

    Production: Nat Hentoff




    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.

    Sound & Color (Awaiting Repress)


    2xLP On Clear Vinyl


    Alabama Shakes announced that they will be releasing the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2012 Grammy-nominated debut. The new album is titled Sound & Color.


    "We took our time to write this record, and I'm really glad we did," says Brittany Howard, lead singer and guitarist of Alabama Shakes, about the band's new album Sound & Color. "We were able to sit down and think about what's exciting to us, explore all the things we wanted to on our first album. This record is full of genre-bending songs-it's even harder now when people ask, 'What kind of band are you?' I have no clue."


    The album's twelve songs reveal a band honed by years on the road, and drawing from a wide range of influences. The bluesy groove of "Shoegaze" or the garage-rock freak-out on "The Greatest" give way to the psychedelic space jam "Gemini." The gently swaying, chiming title song opens the album with what Howard calls "more of a visual thing, I think of this whole scene going on," then explodes into the urgent, tightly-coiled funk of "Don't Wanna Fight." Long instrumental intros and passages create hazy atmosphere, and then the intensity of Howard's vocals snaps everything back into riveting focus.

    Under Color Of Official Right


    There's a humanness and empathy to this material that's increasingly rare in rock songs.- Pitchfork


    Their road is straight; their gospel is truth...If nothing else, the hooks alone should be enough
    to keep you coming back." - Nashville's Dead


    Protomartyr's sound is distinct, but hard to pin down with human language. ... It'd be much easier to describe
    using a series of buzzing tones and propulsive beats, but then you'd be listening to Protomartyr.- KEXP


    In a city full of brilliant people with dead-end jobs and dampened by bitter-cold winters,
    playing music offers a cheap outlet. Protomartyr's taut, austere rock was incubated in a
    freezing Detroit warehouse littered with beer cans and cigarette butts and warmed, feebly,
    by space heaters. Short songs made for short practices, and the band learned quickly not
    to waste time. Despite the cold, Protomartyr emerged with a sound that is idiosyncratic but
    relatable, hooky but off-kilter.


    Protomartyr's economical rock elicits comparisons to possible antecedents like Pere Ubu
    or The Fall as well as local contemporaries like Frustrations or Tyvek (whose frontman Kevin
    Boyer played bass in an early iteration of Protomartyr). Singer Joe Casey's dry declarative
    snarl serves as a reliable anchor, granting his bandmates - guitarist Greg Ahee, drummer
    Alex Leonard and bassist Scott Davidson - the opportunity to explore textures and
    reinforce the rhythm section. This is never more apparent than on the band's sophomore
    LP and Hardly Art debut, Under Color of Official Right. Where 2012's No Passion All
    Technique favored comparatively straightforward punk structures, Under Color takes a
    more exploratory approach. "Tarpeian Rock" places punk vitriol against a minimalist
    backing and "Scum, Rise!" casts shadows with guitars that alternately chime and clang.


    The cheap outlet, crafted by cold hands in a poorly insulated practice space has, perhaps
    unwittingly, become a model of Motor City efficiency. And, more than that, it's produced a
    stunner of a sophomore album.

    Live And In Living Color


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl! 40th Anniversary Edition!


    Impeccably Mastered By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music & Capitol Mastering, Hollywood, CA


    For over four decades, Tower Of Power have been the one of the premier soul, funk and rock bands of our time. Captivating audiences all over the world, the mighty Bay Area ensemble continues to tour extensively and release great music as proven with their 1976 smash "Live And In Living Color."


    "Live And In Living Color" reigns as one of the most notable live albums in funk history. With six super long jams from the pens of founders Emilio Castillo (alto sax/vocals) and Stephen Kupka (baritone sax/vocals), the Lp did well on the r&b radio formats as well as rock and jazz outlets across the country. Especially with the incredible live version of their top charting smash What Is Hip? which is currently featured in the hit HBO tv show Vinyl.


    Further T.O.P. champions like "Knock Yourself Out", "Down To The Nightclub" and the soulful ballad grooves of You're Still A Young Man" and "Sparkling In The Sand" made this album truly memorable.


    Long time member David Garibaldi kicks out his awesome TOP drum sound on this masterwork, along with the incredible horn attack of Castillo and Kupka, with the late great Mic Gillette. Check out Chester Thompson's thrilling keyboard stylings along side the solid vocal artistry of Hubert Tubbs....truly a winning sound from these Oakland superstars.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the soulful and funk sounds of the legendary superstars Tower Of Power. Therefore it is with much honor to continue our Tower Of Power/Friday Music Original Master Series with their smash concert album "Live And In Living Color." Impeccably mastered from the Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso (Tower Of Power/The Isley Brothers), we've also included the original Lp cover graphics to further enhance your Tower Of Power experience.

    Low in High School (Japanese Version) (Yellow Colored Vinyl) (Awaiting Repress)

    Japanese Version - Pressed On Yellow Colored Vinyl


    LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL will be Morrissey's first studio album since
    2014 and his debut for BMG. The album will see BMG partnering
    with Morrissey on the new release and on the launch of his new
    label, Etienne Records. LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL was recorded at
    La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at Ennio Morricone's
    Forum Studios. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who
    has worked with The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes to
    name a few).


    Morrissey's talent for combining political statements and beautiful
    melodies is more prevalent than ever on LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL,
    capturing the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world.


    Rising to prominence as frontman of The Smiths, Morrissey went
    on to forge an even more successful career as a solo artist, with
    all ten of his solo efforts landing in the Top 10 on the UK album
    charts, including 3 entries at the #1 position. Releasing his debut
    solo album Viva Hate back in 1988, he has since released a
    number of critically acclaimed follow-ups including Kill Uncle and
    Your Arsenal, and hugely successful comeback album You Are the
    Quarry after a five year hiatus in 2004.

    Pressed On 2x 180-Gram 45 RPM Red Colored Vinyl


    Housed In A Special Die-Cut Gatefold Package, With A Customizable Color Transparency Cover


    Includes 24-Page Booklet


    Hailed in advance by Rolling Stone as a "euphoric blast of experimental pop", Beck's 13th album Colors has been confirmed for release via Capitol Records. Possibly the most aptly titled work in Beck's storied discography, Colors unfolds in an intoxicating rainbow of auditory tricks and treats, making it a summery smash for the fall season.


    Colors is Beck's first full-length offering of new material since 2014's Gold-certified Morning Phase took Album of the Year top honors at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, as well as Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) category. In addition to the new single "Dear Life", Colors includes both Beck singles that preceded it: a new mix of the psych-dance summer jam "Dreams" that NPR hailed as "urgently contemporary and irresistibly vintage", and the retro-futuristic earworm "Wow" that had Stereogum praising its "big, sweet incandescent hook" and plainly stating "It's a great song!" while Esquire rejoiced "All hail the return of Party Beck".


    Colors was produced by Greg Kurstin and Beck, with the exception of "Wow" produced by Beck and Cole M.G.N., and "Fix Me" produced by Beck. The album was mixed by Serban Ghenea, except "Dreams" and "Up All Night," which were mixed by Greg Kurstin and Beck.

    True Colors

    A Vocal Tour de Force: 1986 Sophomore Effort Stacked With Big-Name Guests and Ambitious Arrangements


    Grammy-Nominated Double-Platinum Set Includes Internationally Recognized Title Track Plus Top 10 Singles "What's Going On" and "Change of Heart"


    Illuminative Sonics: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Cyndi Lauper could've easily played up the independent wild-child pop persona she established on her breakthrough debut until the trend faded. Instead, on her superb sophomore effort, the charismatic artist opts for a more mature and creatively ambitious program, inviting big-name guests and pursuing deeper instrumental textures on a set that goes far beyond the well-known title track. True Colors is a vocal tour de force, an expressive statement on which Lauper showcases singing steeped in emotion, phrasing, and earnestness.


    Bringing Lauper's rich timbre to the fore, and mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system, this RTI-pressed LP presents the 1986 album in the finest fidelity it's ever enjoyed. Period touches such as synthesized drumbeats and layered keyboards no longer sound blatantly artificial or canned. Instruments now possess a warmer, fuller roundness that fleshes out their role in the compositions. And Lauper's vocals-at times balladic, soaring, plaintive, stylish, and celebratory-occupy a defined place in the mix, anchoring songs etched with tonal expressiveness and diverse arrangements.


    An all-star cast aids Lauper in shaping what remains a colossally underrated record. Billy Joel (vocals), Adrian Belew (guitar), the Bangles (vocals), Aimee Mann (vocals), Nile Rodgers (guitar), and Rick Derringer (guitar) are among the guests. So is Pee Wee Herman, whose telephone operator role at the conclusion of "911" speaks to the fact that Lauper didn't abandon her whimsical nature even as she pressed forward. Cajun accents, soulful motifs ("What's Going On"), and joyous covers of traditional fare ("Iko Iko") keep the album pleasantly varied and accessibly offbeat.


    Of course, Lauper also turns in, with "True Colors," what's arguably her career-defining moment, the chart-topping single radiating with gorgeous elegance and graceful phrasing that forced audiences to regard the performer in a different light. For her boldness, Lauper was rewarded with two Grammy nominations and a song that has since been covered by artists such as Phil Collins and appeared as the theme for the 1988 Olympic Games and 2003 Rugby World Cup.


    Don't miss this chance to hear True Colors in the three-dimensional detail one gets from a high-definition television picture.
