UNIM-GEF-7658xThe Counting Crows
August And Everything AfterWhen the prevailing guitar jingle of Mr. Jones cascaded over radio in the early '90s, it was a sure sign that the Counting Crows were a musical force to be reckoned with. Their debut album, August and Everything After, burst at the seams with both dominant pop harmonies and rich, hearty ballads, all thanks to lead singer Adam Duritz. The lone guitar work of Mr. Jones coupled with the sweet, in-front pull of Duritz's voice kicked off the album in full force. The starkly beautiful and lonely sounding Round Here captured the band's honest yet subtle talent for singing ballads, while Omaha is lyrically reminiscent of a Springsteen tune.
The fusion of hauntingly smooth vocals with such instruments as the Hammond B-3 organ and the accordion pumped new life into the music scene, and their brisk sound catapulted them into stardom. On Rain King, the piano takes over as its aloof flair dances behind Duritz with elegant crispness. The slower-paced Raining in Baltimore paints a perfectly gray picture and illustrates the band's ease at conveying mood by eliminating the tempo. Most of the songs here engage in overly contagious hooks that won't go away, making for a solid bunch of tunes. Containing the perfect portions of instrumental and vocal conglomeration, the Counting Crows showed off their appealing sound to its full extent with their very first album.

August And Everything AfterCounting Crows' 1993 debut album released for the first time as an LP in the U.S.!
Double album cut at 45 RPM, plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings - four sides maximize the recording's dynamic range
Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound
Counting Crows put in the gigging hours during the early days of the band, and it paid off. By the time they signed to Geffen in 1993, they had already built up a significant fanbase. Their debut, August and Everything After, produced by T-Bone Burnett, was released later the same year and became an unexpected multi-platinum hit, partly as a result of the successful single Mr. Jones.
Although recorded to audio tape, the album was originally mastered for CD and featured a longer playing time than a standard LP. Thus Analogue Productions has reissued August and Everything After as a double LP set to maximize the dynamic range of this recording. This is the first time that the 'Crows multi-platinum smash has been released in the U.S. as an LP. Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound.

Recovering The SatellitesFor their second album, Recovering the Satellites, Counting Crows crafted a self-consciously challenging response to their unexpected success. Throughout the record, Adam Duritz contemplates his loss of privacy and sudden change of fortunes, among other angst-ridden subjects. In one sense, it's no different from the subjects that dominated August and Everything After, yet his outlook is lacking the muted joy that made Mr. Jones into a hit. Similarly, the music is slightly more somber, yet the approach is harder and more direct, which gives even the ballads a more affecting, visceral feel.

Another LifeJames Maddock affirms his status as a fixture in downtown Manhattan's folk and Americana scene with his album 'Another Life.' As NPR says of the British transplant, "his timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and lovely intimacy."
Nodding to '70s rock with shimmering acoustic guitars, an understated rhythm section and flourishes of fiddle, mandolin, piano and dobro, 'Another Life' bridges the mainstream appeal of songwriters like Jesse Harris and Norah Jones and the quirkier sensibility of Loudon Wainwright. With funding entirely from fan contributions through PledgeMusic, Maddock worked with producer Matt Pierson, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell (who's played with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm) and bassist Tony Scherr (who plays with Norah Jones).
The 13 songs on 'Another Life' paint a portrait of a man reaching the midpoint of his life, a natural progression from themes in Maddock's earlier releases. He's looking back on roads not taken, and isn't always sure he chose the right one. On the title track, Maddock wants an extra 50 years to try "acting, white-water rafting," "some illegal substances," even having a kid or three. "I've Been There Too," built around an indelible guitar riff, shows Maddock's knack for instrumental hooks as well as lyrical ones. "Don't Go Lonely," in a well-timed moment of levity, hints at reggae with dub bass, bubbling organ and the chorus's entreaty to "go get high, go get found, go crazy on this town / don't go lonely."
After fronting the Columbia Records band Wood, whose debut 'Songs From Stamford Hill' was featured prominently on TV shows such as "Dawson's Creek," Maddock moved from England to New York City in 2003. His 2009 album 'Sunrise On Avenue C' won a New York Music Award for Best Americana Album, while follow-up 'Wake Up And Dream' ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV's (NYC) Listener Poll. He's performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and is a resident artist at Rockwood Music Hall. According to radio legend Vin Scelsa, Maddock's heartbreakingly beautiful and exquisitely crafted music touches the soul.1. Another Life

Key Lime Pie
Includes 45 RPM Bonus Track "Closing Theme!" On Side D (Plays From The Center Groove)
Includes New Liners And Photos
Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in 1988 and delivered a record that defied those who thought the band might "sell out." The band
returned the following year with what most deem their masterpiece- Key Lime Pie.
Omnivore Recordings is excited to reissue Camper Van Beethoven's Virgin Records output, including 1989's classic, Key Lime Pie.
Once again produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), Key Lime Pie continued the journey into the world of CVB, but with higher
production value and sound than had been heard before. From a track about Jack Ruby to a cover of Status Quo's "Pictures Of Matchstick Men", Key
Lime Pie was a slice above the rest and a fitting dessert for the 1980s.
The nearly hourlong album was originally pressed on one LP, but Omnivore has expanded it to two LPs
(for better sound) and added a bonus track to Side D.
Includes new liners and photos. Presented as they should be, they will delight fans and educate those who have only read about the
importance of this record. Key Lime Pie is both sweet and tart, but Key Lime Pie is an essential component to any musical meal.LP 1

Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart
25th Anniversary Reissue
Featuring New Liners And Photos
When indie superstars Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in the late 1980s, it seemed inconceivable. How could that band move to a
major label without "selling out" and sacrificing all that made them great?
The first three tracks on Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart were a pop song, an instrumental and an adaptation of a folk dirge about death. Heck, the
release even had a love song for Patty Hearst. No, Camper Van Beethoven didn't sell out. They just had better distribution now.
Omnivore Recordings is proud to take everyone back to 1988, when musical worlds collided and Camper Van Beethoven helped break the mold and blur
the lines between indie rock and "alternative." Suddenly, it was an even playing field and Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart found itself in the bins
next to Chicago and Cinderella. Produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), the 25th anniversary of this landmark album finds it
reissued for the first time since its original issue.
Featuring new liners and photos, Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart is being reissued in tandem with its acclaimed follow up
Key Lime Pie, with full cooperation and input from the band themselves. These are the releases CVB fans have been dreaming of.
It's been a few years since the end of the 1980s, but Camper Van Beethoven has always been timeless. Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart proves
that. It's even spelled out in the title: beloved, revolutionary and a real sweetheart.1. Eye Of Fatima (Pt. 1)

Delivery ManIn 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.1. Button My Lip

Marigolden"The body remembers what the mind forgets," Chris Porterfield reminisces on his acclaimed band Field Report's sophomore record, Marigolden. The record is strewn with references to the inevitable tolls taken by the passage of time, and prolonged distance from home and loved ones.
The past couple of years have flashed by for Porterfield, who was thrust into the spotlight after years of musical reclusion. His Milwaukee-based band, Field Report (an anagram of his surname), was culled together in the studio while recording their 2012 self-titled debut. They suddenly found themselves championed by their former idols: offered support tours by Counting Crows and Aimee Mann, lauded by the likes of Mark Eitzel and Richard Thompson, and covered by Blind Boys Of Alabama.
The band honed itself from a septet to a quartet in the year that followed, focusing its sound and tightening the screws. With a heavy batch of songs under their arms, they retreated to snowy Ontario in December 2013 to record their sophomore album, Marigolden, with the help of producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist).
Spending two years roaming around the country playing tiny venues and sold-out amphitheaters alike, Porterfield was uncertain whether he was leading the charge toward an artistic epiphany or headed down a misguided path of self-destruction. Marigolden reflects this, as he ruminates across homesick tension and an un-grounded anxiety. But rather than wallow in melancholy, Porterfield finds solace and inspiration through his songs, which reveal themselves as uplifting and celebratory. The album is brighter than their 2012 debut, but somehow remains just as elegantly ominous.
Marigolden's second track, the surprisingly catchy radio single "Home," finds Porterfield on the road, hoping the home, wife, dog, and life he left behind in Milwaukee will still be there upon his return. "Leave the lights on," he asks, "it might be nighttime when I get there, but I'm on my way home." While the song contemplates lonesomeness, there is an undeniable sense of hope driving it. In "Summons," the penultimate track, he recalls this thought, repeating, "I'll be coming home to you" like a mantra. This sense of balance and symmetry across the album helps provide stability to the otherwise volatile themes. Case in point: the album starts with a sunrise in "Decision Day" and ends full circle with another in "Enchantment."
Whether reconsidering sobriety in "Pale Rider," sticking to tonic water in the bars of "Summons," or cashing in a 30-day chip for a kiss in "Enchantment," Porterfield's relationship with alcohol runs through the current of nearly every song. Most notably in "Ambrosia," where he find himself face to face with the reality of where his drinking is destined to lead.
The album runs the musical gamut, from the Traveling Wilburys-esque pop of "Home," to the Neil Young-inspired piano ballad "Ambrosia," to the electronic sonic landscape of "Wings." While the compositions express a wide range in terms of genre, they find unity in themselves within the limits of self-imposed minimalism. In the studio, the songs were stripped down to the bones and built back up using only their essential elements.
Sequestered in a seemingly never-ending Ontario blizzard, the band only broke from this musical process to add logs to the stove, with the snow and the fire providing a proper background for music so rooted in the elemental. The effect that this fundamentals-based approach achieves is universal: the sparse arrangements and common themes speak to everyone, but somehow feel tailored to each listener. The title itself reflects this, a portmanteau of two common images (marigold and golden) to create something that feels both idiosyncratic and familiar: Marigolden.1. Decision Day

The Phoenix And The TurtleApril 2014 will see the release of her new album entitled The Phoenix and the Turtle. Described by Beverley as a very personal album, it features songs written throughout her entire career, from her very first song, ''Sweet Joy'', to the previously unrecorded Nick Drake & Beverley Martyn song ''Reckless Jane'' which was started in 1974 when Drake lived nearby Beverley in Hampstead. ''We started writing the song as a bit of a joke,'' she says, ''When John and I lived in Hampstead Nick lived one stop down the tube line, and he would come around and babysit sometimes. I couldn't look at it for a long time after he died, but then finally I decided to finish it.''
''When The Levee Breaks' and 'Going To Germany' are songs Beverley used to sing with The Levee Breakers. Another song, 'Women And Malt Whiskey' is, in part, about John Martyn and other friends from the scene back then.
The Phoenix and the Turtle is Beverley's first album in fourteen years and was recorded in Wales with guitarist and producer Mark Pavey; it also features contributions from bass player Matt Malley, ex-Counting Crows and drummer Victor Bisetti, ex-Los Lobos which were recorded ''by the magic of computer'' in California. The album ''still has that in-a-room feel,'' said Beverley recently, ''it sounds like an old style analogue record. It's very me, very transatlantic.''1. Reckless Jane

Echoes Of The Outlaw Roadshow (Out Of Stock)Following their electrifying national summer tour, Counting Crows have announced the release of Echoes of the Outlaw Roadshow, the band's newest collection of live songs. This collection of audio footage was recorded on several dates of their 2012 North American tour.
Echoes will compliment other official live recordings the band has released. The album was recorded and mixed by Shawn Dealey, who worked on Counting Crows' 2012 studio release Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation). It is a deluxe package and will include 13 postcards of posters from their 2012 and 2013 tour dates. A digital version of the album was included as a larger promotional package during the band's summer tour, but this release marks the first official nationwide availability of the record. The band is currently in the studio working on new material. Counting Crows - Adam Duritz (vocals), Jim Bogios (drums), David Bryson (guitar), Charlie Gillingham (keyboards), David Immergluck (guitar), Millard Powers (bass) and Dan Vickrey (guitar) - have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multi-platinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993. Their most recent album, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation), features a collection of 15 gorgeously rendered songs in which the modern rock mainstays honor global icons, indie-pop heroes, compelling up-and-comers and even their own seminal pre-Crows projects.1.

Communion (Out Of Stock)Swedish power pop-psychedelicists The Soundtrack of Our Lives return in force with the Communion, a double album opus containing 24 tracks dedicated to the moods of each hour of the day and night. On Communion, their first album in nearly four years, caftan-sporting Norseman Ebbot Lundberg and company blast through a veritable pharmacopeia of musical medication for the often insidious symptoms of modern society. But here Soundtrack not only point out the ills experienced by modern man, they offer actual cures in the form of buzzing guitars and glistening pop rock anthems. Despite already counting Grammy nominations (Behind the Music 2003) opening slots for the icons of rock (The Rolling Stones, U2, The Black Crowes, Oasis) and nearly never ending headlining tours of the world as career milestones, the breadth and intensity of Communion knows no equal in the band's catalog and reminds the world why The Soundtrack of Our Lives remains one of rock's most profound and eccentric voices.Babel On
