    Muswell Hillbillies

    Muswell Hillbillies is the ninth studio album by the English rock group The Kinks. The album is named after the Muswell Hill area of North London, where band leader Ray Davies and guitarist Dave Davies grew up and the band formed in the early 1960s. The album centered on themes of poverty and working-class life, as well as the destruction and subdivision of old Victorian neighborhoods-a practice that had become commonplace in North London during the 1970s.

    Everybody's In Show-Biz


    4-Panel Gatefold


    150 Gram Vinyl


    Two Inserts: Original Lyric Sheet Plus Second Insert With Bonus Track Info


    Contains The Original 2-LP Plus A Third LP With 9 Previously Unreleased Live And Studio Tracks


    First released in August 1972, Everybody's In Show-Biz was The Kinks' tenth studio album, arriving within a year of the acclaimed Muswell Hillbillies (the group's debut album for RCA Records). The original double-LP Everybody's In Show-Biz contained a complete studio album (which premiered the all-time Kinks classic Celluloid Heroes among other tracks) and a live disc chronicling The Kinks' Carnegie Hall appearance in March 1972.


    The 2016 Legacy Edition of Everybody's In Show-Biz includes the original album, produced by Raymond Douglas Davies, in its entirety alongside a full disc's worth of previously unissued studio sessions outtakes (recorded for the album in 1972 at Morgan Studios, Willesden, London) and live material (recorded March 2-3, 1972 during The Kinks' triumphant Carnegie Hall concert run).


    The new edition of Everybody's In Show-Biz includes in-depth liner notes penned especially for this release by noted rock scholar David Fricke.


    A concept album of sorts, Everybody's In Show-Biz drew its themes and inspirations from the trials, tribulations and triumphs of life as a touring musician. (The raucous Carnegie Hall recordings on the album come from one of the first North American concerts performed by The Kinks after the lift of a four-year ban imposed on the group by the American Federation of Musicians in 1965.) The songs on Everybody's In Show-Biz were initially intended to serve as the soundtrack to The Colossal Shirt, a never-realized feature film about The Kinks on the road.


    Life keeps using me, keeps on abusing me, mentally and physically, Davies sings on the album's Maximum Consumption. I gotta stay fit, stay alive, need fuel inside, eat food to survive . Stylistically, Everybody's in Show-Biz finds Davies further exploring his interest in Americana-inspired musical arrangements as heard on Muswell Hillbillies.


    Everybody's In Show-Biz showcases the second great classic Kinks line-up: frontman Ray Davies, guitarist Dave Davies, bassist John Dalton, keyboardist John Gosling and drummer Mick Avory, joined by brass and woodwind players Mike Cotton, John Beecham and Alan Holmes (all of whom played on Muswell Hillbillies).


    The Carnegie Hall recordings include a variety of Kinks originals in addition to unconventional covers including Mr. Wonderful (from the Sammy Davis Jr.-led musical of the same name), the 1920s popular standard Baby Face (made famous by Al Jolson) and The Banana Boat Song (a calypso-folk perennial popularized by Harry Belafonte).


    The new Legacy Edition of Everybody's In Show-Biz includes never-before-heard live versions of Sunny Afternoon, Get Back in Line, Complicated Life and the rarely-played Long Tall Shorty as well as alternate versions of Supersonic Rocket Ship, Unreal Reality and the debut release of History, which foreshadowed The Kinks' next concept album, 1973's Preservation Act 1.

    Straight No Chaser

    Import

    A few years after recording Straight, No Chaser, Thelonious Monk disappeared from the public eye. But as the years passed, more people became aware of the seminal role he played in the development in jazz as both pianist and composer, creating a standard of excellence that many musicians after him aspire to.


    Produced by Teo Macero, who was also responsible for legendary albums such as Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue and Dave Brubeck's Time Out!, Monk's Straight, No Chaser is a classic in its own right. It's the last album the talented pianist and composer recorded with his quartet consisting of Larry Gales on bass, Ben Riley on drums and his musical soul mate Charlie Rouse on tenor sax. It includes a light yet mature version of one of his standards; Straight, No Chaser is one idea played again and again, each time in a different part of the measure and with a different ending, and highlights some stellar action between Monk and Rouse.

    In A Silent Way (Awaiting Repress)

    Float Into the Ether: Gorgeous 1969 Experimental Treasure Among the Most Atmospheric Jazz Albums Ever Recorded


    Delicate, Immersing, Dynamic: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Magnifies the Bold Textures, Soothing Ambience, and Transcendent Moods


    Davis First Fusion Album Features John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, and Tony Williams


    Sketches of Spain, Kind of Blue, Milestones, Round About Midnight, and Four & More Also Available from Mobile Fidelity


    Shhh. The command to be quiet is no just part of the title of one of the two sprawling compositions on this pioneering album. Its also an apt metaphor for the relaxed hypnotism and spaced-out atmosphere that define In a Silent Way, a record that pushes the boundaries of studio possibilities, artist-producer relationships, and rock-jazz chasms. Recognized as Miles Davis first full-on fusion effort and part of his electric era, the 1969 landmark claims a Whos Who lineup that sends the music into an ethereal stratosphere.


    Part of Mobile Fidelitys Miles Davis catalog restoration series, In a Silent Way now immerses the listener in linoleate landscapes starlit by the intuition, suspension, and paradoxes wrought by a once-in-a-lifetime collective. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, this unsurpassed 180g LP edition lifts the veil on the cutting-edge assembly process that created the pair of lengthy suites. Helmed by three electric instruments, the beveled compositions melt away all preconceived notions of jazz, rock, and ambience, following a loose theory Davis dubbed New Directions.


    Few albums are so delicately textured. And on Mobile Fidelitys meticulous analog reissue, such sulcate elements pour over ink-black backgrounds on a canyon-wide soundstage. In particular, Tony Williams inventive percussive touch he causes the cymbals to shimmer as a pieces of silver tend to do when exposed to sunlight is broadcast with lifelike three-dimensional qualities, the panoramic view extending to Davis nocturnal trumpet, Wayne Shorter's ribbon-unfurling saxophone, Dave Hollands extrapolative bass, and the mosaic of keys.


    If the records only accomplishment is its introduction of guitarist John McLaughlin to the world, it alone would be enough. Yet In a Silent Way continues to bedazzle, puzzle, and inspire for myriad reasons not the least of which is the seemingly telepathic communicative methods employed by the groups members. The lineup is great on paper, but, if its even possible, the octet sounds even better in practice, with the instruments and tonalities conjoining in avant-garde communion like hyper-sensitive tentacles exploring the stippled landscapes of an undiscovered planet.


    Diverting from expectation, tubular grooves twist, turn, and spin, sometimes piling atop of each other, always shying away from structure and melody. Ellipsoidal solos provide hesitant guidance, ranging from Chick Corea's Fender Rhodes phrases to Davis decorative spirals. And as color is the primary unit of currency on Davis Sketches of Spain, laidback episodes, geometric spaces, and quiet sensuality reign here, with the sets maverick reputation attained via musings on solitude rather than explosions of noise.


    Controversial for the period, the heavily edited production of In a Silent Way blew open the once-locked doors on what producers could attempt and how artists could assist them. Knitted together as one would construct a cross-hatched quilt, songs contain grafts of repeat passages that provide unifying structure and experimental continuity. What a statement.

    A Period of Review (1975-1983) (Awaiting Repress)


    Expert Mastering By Greg Davis, Liner Notes By K. Leimer And Dave Segal


    Double LP Packaging Features Unique Reverse Flap Exterior, Full Color Eurosleeves, &
    16-page Booklet


    For the third installment in RVNG Intl.'s archival series, the tape is wound back to 1970s
    Seattle, home place of ambient music savant K. Leimer. A Period of Review (Original
    Recordings: 1975-1983) unearths unreleased portions of Leimer's vast archives and
    highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried
    his music to infinite resonance.


    Kerry Leimer was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He was raised in Chicago before his family
    permanently settled in Seattle in 1967. Kerry's teenage interests and artistic experiments
    blossomed from the seductively strange tendrils of Dadaism and Surrealism. In the early 70s,
    Leimer found musical parallels to these visual movements by studying import copies of NME
    and Melody Maker and inquiring with local record store clerks about the exotic descriptions
    he read of Can, Neu! and Faust-innovators who were bringing the wild dictates of 60s art-discourse into music


    The tape-manipulated serenity Leimer experienced with Cluster's II was a key revelation.
    Leimer realized the potential to compose with minimal training and scoured pawnshops
    for cheap instruments and recording equipment to transpose his wayward musical instincts.
    Leimer's sound palette and composition soon refined and heightened with the accessibility of
    dynamic equipment such as the Micromoog and TEAC multi-track tape machines.


    Synchronously, the Terry Riley indebted loop-based compositions of Robert Fripp and
    Brian Eno's No Pussyfooting inspired Leimer to form recursive musical passages of bare
    timbre and melody that would become hallmarks of his sound. "The loop provided an
    instant structure-a sort of fatalism," recollects Leimer in A Period of Review's liner notes. "The
    participation of the tape machine in shaping and extending the music was a key to setting
    self-deterministic systems in motion and held a clear relationship to my interests in fine art."


    The underground music scene of Seattle/Olympia in late 70s was small but seeded.
    The vestiges of prog rock pompously pummeled the few clubs and record shops before
    punk and New Wave became the rage. Leimer sought to support a growing community of
    experimental composers by launching the Palace of Lights record label in 1979 with his wife
    Dorothy Cross (this was years prior to the birth of regional titans K Records and Sub Pop).


    Leimer rarely performed live, averting the litmus of instant appreciation for his solitary
    studio pursuits. Tellingly, the "K." that abbreviated Leimer's first name was a nod to Kafka's
    doomed pariah Josef K (from The Trial and The Castle). This gives a sense of the reclusive
    and literary realm Leimer was fond of working in. Despite his reticence, Leimer's debut 1980
    album Closed System Potentials would reach a receptive audience, and eventually sell more
    than 3,000 copies thanks in part to Cross's persistent advocation to independent distributors
    and magazines.


    A Period of Review focuses on unheard material outside of the work Leimer offered on
    Palace of Lights, though even that music could be considered relatively "unheard." The thirty
    tracks of A Period of Review may have remained a mystery on moldy reels until now, but
    Leimer's entire catalog of generative music remains pristine in its absolute power.


    Liner notes were crafted by Seattle writer David Segal. Top-tier mastering was done by
    Greg Davis, who produced the compilation with Palace of Lights artist Robert Carlberg, RVNG
    and Kerry Leimer himself, who continues making music to this day.

    The Inner Mystique (Awaiting Repress)

    Sundazed is totally stoked to announce the reissue of the first two albums by the Chocolate Watch Band, high on everyones list as one of the most exciting garage bands ever. Hailing from San Jose, California, the Watch Bandfeaturing the pouting, Mick Jagger-influenced lead vocals of Dave Aguilar, the thrilling guitars of Sean Tolby and Mark Loomis, the solid bass of Bill Flores and the thumping drums of Gary Andrijasevichmade all the right scenes in San Jose, including appearances with South Bay chart-toppers the Syndicate of Sound and Count Five.


    The Inner Mystique, the Watch Bands follow-up LP, puts you in the middle of a hippie ballroom with legendary producer Ed Cobbs instrumental Voyage of the Trieste and In the Past, which use enough psychedelic guitar, electric sitar and exotic shakers and rattles to grow your hair at least two inches overnight. Ray Davies Im Not Like Everybody Else sounds like it was written just for the Watch Band, and Dylans Its All Over Now, Baby Blue is a jingle-jangle masterpiece.

    Primitive And Deadly


    Contains Vinyl Only Exclusive Track: Badgers Bane


    This deluxe vinyl version of the new Earth studio opus comes in a thick Stoughton old style tip-on jacket with a soft-touch UV varnish.


    Primitive And Deadly, is EARTH's tenth studio collection. Dylan Carlson and long term cohort, drummer Adrienne Davies, manage to pull off the trick of completing an Ouroborean creative cycle, twenty-five years in the making, whilst exploring new directions in their music. For the first time in their diverse second act, they allow themselves to be a rock band, freed of adornment and embellishment. As much as Carlson's guitar has always been the focal point of EARTH's music, it's been surrounded by consistently diverse instrumentation. Here the dialog between Carlson and Davies drumming remains pivotal, underpinned by the sympathetic bass of Bill Herzog (Sunn O))), Joel RL Phelps, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter) and thickened by additional layers of guitar from Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Caustic Resin) and Jodie Cox (Narrows). Perhaps the largest left turn on Primitive And Deadly, though, is prominence of guest vocalists Mark Lanegan and Rabia Shaheen Qazi (Rose Windows) who transform the traditionally free ranging meditations of EARTH into something approaching traditional pop structures.


    On Rooks Across the Gates, a song stylistically the closest to the folk inspired modality of Angels Of Darkness, Carlson stretches out into some of his most lyrical playing to date, creating an almost symbiotic relationship between his performance and the vocals of old friend Mark Lanegan. From the Zodiacal Light, meanwhile, takes the late 60s San Franciscan/freaked-out jazz-rock transcendence of The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull and quickly re-appropriates that sound into a musky torch song for the witching hour.


    This contradictive tension between a band pushing itself ever-forward whilst surveying their history is reflected in the albums twin recording locales. The foundation of the record was laid in the mystic desert high lands of Joshua Tree, California where EARTH recorded hour after hour of meditations on each tracks central theme at Rancho de la Luna. Upon returning to Seattle these were edited, arranged and expanded upon at Avast with the help of long-term collaborator Randall Dunn (who was previously at the helm for the Hex, The Bees Made Honey In The Lions Skull and Hibernaculum sessions).


    Thick, dense and overdriven, melodically rich and enveloping, Primitive And Deadly is EARTH reaffirming their position as a singular point in the history of rock.

    Live Evil

    Import

    Live-Evil (1970) by Miles Davis is a double live album which features different settings of Miles Davis' bands.


    One of such recordings is of a 1970 gig at the Cellar Door, which featured a band comprised of Miles, bassist Michael Henderson, drummer Jack DeJohnette, guitarist John McLaughlin, saxophonist Gary Barts, and Keith Jarrett. The group is groovy, fast, and funky.


    The other setting was recorded with Ron Carter, Dave Holland, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock among others. This record is complex, but somehow still groovy. Tracs like "Sivad", "Funky Tonk", and "What I say" shows enthusiasm and wonderfully live material.

    Dark Magus

    Import

    The double live album Dark Magus was recorded on March 30, 1974, at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Davis' group at the time included bassist Michael Henderson, drummer Al Foster, percussionist James Mtume, saxophonist Dave Liebman, and guitarists Pete Cosey and Reggie Lucas. Dark Magus was produced by Teo Macero and featured four two-part recordings titled after Swahili names for the numbers one through four.


    Dark Magus was released after Davis' 1975 retirement. After releasing the live recordings Agharta (1975) and Pangaea (1976), Dark Magus was originally only released in Japan.


    The album inspired noise Rock acts during the late 1970s and the experimental Funk artists of the 1980s. In retrospective reviews, critics praised its Jazz-Rock aesthetic and the group members' performances, and felt that parts of the music foreshadowed jungle music. In 2001, Q magazine named Dark Magus one of the 50 Heaviest Albums of All Time.

    Black Beauty, Miles Davis At Fillmore West, was recorded on April 10, 1970 at Fillmore West, San Francisco, when Davis performed as the opening act for the Grateful Dead. The recording took place shortly after the release of Miles' classic album Bitches Brew. The album was released in 1973, originally in Japan only.


    Black Beauty, a true jazz-rock album, captured one of Davis' first performances at a rock venue during the early stages of his electric period. At the concert, he led his band (saxophonist Steve Grossman, bassist Dave Holland, keyboardist Chick Corea, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and percussionist Airto Moreira) through one continuously performed set list.


    The songs in the band's setlist were as followed: Directions, Miles Runs the Voodoo Down, Willie Nelson, I Fall In Love Too Easily, Sanctuary, It's About That Time, Bitches Brew, Masqualero, Spanish Key, and The Theme. They were performed as one continuous and uninterrupted piece of music, a practice Davis had begun in 1967. He later explained in his autobiography that performing these kinds of long musical suites without breaks allowed more space for improvisations in concert.


    The original Japanese booklet is included in this vinyl package.

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Gatefold Sleeve


    Featuring Herbie Hancock, John Mclaughlin, Lonnie Listen Smith, Chick Corea, Wayyne Shorter, Joe Zawinul And Many Others


    Originally released in 1974, Big Fun presents music from three different phases of Miles Davis's early-seventies electric period.


    Sides one and four (Great Expectations and Lonely Fire) were recorded three months after the Bitches Brew sessions and incorporate sitar, tambura, tabla, and other Indian instruments. They also mark the first time since the beginning of Miles Davis's electric period that he played his trumpet with the Harmon mute which had been one of his hallmarks, making it sound much like the sitar. This contributed to creating a very clear and lean sound, highlighting both the high and low registers, as opposed to the busier sound of Bitches Brew which placed more emphasis on the middle and low registers.


    Ife was recorded after the 1972 On the Corner sessions, and the framework is similar to tracks from that record. It has a drum and electric bass groove and a plethora of musicians improvising individually and in combinations over variations on the hypnotic bassline.


    Recorded in March 1970, Go Ahead John is an outtake from Davis's Jack Johnson sessions. The recording is a riff and groove-based, with a relatively sparser line-up of Steve Grossman on soprano saxophone, Dave Holland on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and John McLaughlin on guitar with wah-wah pedal.

    Bitches Brew: Live

    It has been said that jazz stopped evolving when Davis wasn't there to push it forward.


    Even if that isn't true, Miles Davis certainly was one of the greatest music innovators of the 20th century, pioneering Cool Jazz (with the 1949 recording of Birth Of The Cool), Modal Jazz (with 1959's Kind Of Blue) and Fusion with 1970's Bitches Brew.


    Bitches Brew Live contains recordings from two performances: the first three songs were recorded at his Newport Jazz performance in July 1969 - a couple of weeks before the Bitches Brew Sessions in August of that year - and have remained unissued till this day.


    Miles performs with Chick Corea on electric piano, Dave Holland on acoustic bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums; musicians who all went on to become leaders of the Fusion movement. (Wayne Shorter unfortunately missed this date because he was stuck in traffic.) The A1 track 'Miles Runs The Voodoo Down' is the first professionally live recorded version of this song.


    The other six songs were recorded at the Isle Of Wight festival in 1970,and contain 'Directions' and 'It's About That Time' from the In A Silent Way sessions.


    Included in this exclusive release is a 12 page booklet with a liner note essay by renowned music journalist Michael Azzerad, and a special etch on the D side.

    Filles De Kilimanjaro

    Numbered, Limited Edition


    Davis' Self-Proclaimed "Directions in Music" March Begins Here


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Abundant Jazz, Funk, and Rock Textures Rotate Around a Luscious Tonal Center


    Landmark 1968 Effort Recognized as Davis' Prelude Into Full-On Fusion: Exotic Suite-Like Album Beautiful, Intense, Adventurous


    Miles Davis' move into full-on fusion starts here. Abandoning his bebop roots and chasing electric dreams, rock-based rhythms, and ostinato pulses, the icon gives life to new music forms on Filles de Kilimanjaro, a titanic release prized for its historical significance and lasting beauty. Grounded and focused, the five compositions unfold like a unified suite. Such peak lyricism, flourishes, and phrases are experienced in the highest-possible fidelity on Mobile Fidelity's 45RPM 2LP set.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, this collectable audiophile version of Filles de Kilimanjaro joins the ranks of eleven other essential Davis sets given supreme sonic and packaging treatment by Mobile Fidelity. Loaded with revealing signatures, the record takes on even greater import when heard the way Davis and his mates discerned it in the studio. Backgrounds are squid-ink black, pianissimo lines shimmer, and the electric piano emerges with tube-amp warmth.


    Indeed, the exotic sound, touch, and feel of the songs on Filles de Kilimanjaro are as crucial as the melodies. To that extent, listeners can now enjoy the expressive tonalities and lush colors from each instrument in full-range glory. Voicings, harmonics, and pitches are rendered with exquisite detail. The manners in which the textures and phrases rotate what seems like a unified tonal center places you at the original recording sessions, executed in July and September 1968.


    The final appearance of Davis' classic second quintet bears fruit on three of the record's cuts, including the title track and R&B-tinted "Frelon Brun." Sparked with restrained funk, driving grooves, and bluesy accents, Filles de Kilimanjaro maintains an instinctive flow and controlled fredom that permit Davis to oversee an innovative blending of alterations, improvisation, and cycles. Comprised of multiple sections, "Petits Machins" is a lesson in perfectly played melodic complexity, with chromatic riffs, dominant chords, syncopated progressions, and switching meters forming a singular mosaic.


    Filles de Kilimanjaro also represents a jumping-off point for Davis' lineup. For the September sessions, Chick Corea replaced Herbie Hancock while Dave Holland relieved Ron Carter. The new additions speak a different albeit common language, fitting in with Davis' desire to draw from rock and weave funk into open-minded excursions filled with exoticism, soulfulness, and wonder.


    More than 40 years ago, this record epitomized the future of jazz. Davis even announced such aspirations with the tagline "Directions in Music." With the jazz world still trying to wrap its collective mind around its genius, it still does.

    Listed as one of the four most influential Jazz albums that happened to be released in 1959 (Dave Brubeck - Time Out & Charles Mingus - Ah Um among them), so much has been said and written about Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue, it's virtually impossible to summarize all the necessary info to the length of this page. We could simply list some facts (best sold Jazz album ever worldwide). We could try to explain why it's the best Jazz album ever made, but the music itself will do that to you.


    As Bill Evans said in the original liner notes for the record, the band did not play through any of these pieces prior to recording. Miles Davis laid out the themes before the tape rolled and the band improvised. The end results were fragile and wondrous. Recorded during 2 sessions in 1959, Kind of Blue worked on many different levels and will do so for many years to come.

    Late Night Tales: Django Django

    Django Django is the latest band invited to curate a prestigious Late Night Tales collection, set for release on 5th May. Like many of the best British groups, the Djangos met at art school, specifically Edinburgh College Of Art, before reconnecting in London. Django Django released their self-titled debut album on quirky French indie Because in early 2012 to some acclaim, winding up in many critics' end of year lists (Top Ten in the NME and Top 30 in Rolling Stone, among them).


    Their oddball approach to music, which sounds like the rich harmonies of the Mamas & Papas beamed through a refracting prism pointing towards Bo Diddley, Chicago house and outer-space (it's no surprise to learn that Django producer/drummer Dave Maclean's brother John was in the Beta Band, who also shared the same cinemascopic view of the pop landscape).


    "Rollicking sing-alongs, galloping into disco sunsets like whisky-addled and leather-saddled bandits on the stolen backs of prairie wild mustangs," is how Django Django describe themselves. Which is another way of saying they're pop adventurists, as at home with Mad Mike's Underground Resistance as they are the blues rumble of Canned Heat. A bit like this delightful mix, then, which darts about like a gurgle of guppies after two too many espressos.


    Check out mixes that rock between two-step delights like Roy Davis Jr's 'Gabrielle' to Nilsson's lyrically winsome 'Coconut'. At one end of the Django spectrum there's James Last, the terminally unhip Teuton, whose 'Inner City Blues' shows you can never underestimate the Germans, while at the far reaches of the mix, they manage to sneak in Ramadanman ('Bass Drums') and Hudson Mohawke and Lunice collaboration TNGHT's 'Bugg'n'. You can hear the echoes of influences in some of the selections, like The Beach Boys whose peerless 'Surf's Up' makes a welcome appearance halfway through, while Seals & Crofts' "Sweet Green Fields" show what sun-drenched pop can sound like when it's done well. And because it's Late Night Tales there's a sparkling cover version of 'Porpoise Song', the theme from The Monkees daffily brilliant 'Head', an admirably lysergic termination to this waltz through pop's nooks and cranberries. "You should never be afraid to make a fool of yourself for art," Dave Maclean once said. Let's raise a dram to Scotland's favourite fools on the hill.


    "We wanted to produce a mix that represented the band. It's what we're all into, so everyone put forward suggestions. It's what we are as a band; and we're kids that have grown up with an obsession about our mum and dad's record collections, like '50s and 60s stuff and then got into hip hop and dance music as we grew up. At the heart of it all is our parents' collections, with our tastes mixed in. Our Late Night Tales pays homage to that."

    Black Messiah


    Vinyl Lacquers Cut By Alex DeTurk At Masterdisk


    Pressed At R.T.I.


    No digital 'plug-ins' of any kind were used in this recording. All of the recording, processing, effects and mixing was done in the analog domain using tape and mostly vintage equipment.


    ''For all intents and purposes, this album is the black version of [The Beach Boys'] Smile-- at best, it will go down in the Smile/There's a Riot Goin' On/Miles Davis' On the Corner category.'' - Questlove


    The prodigal son of the soul and funk canon, D'Angelo, is back! His ever-awaited third studio album, Black Messiah, is his first album since the critically acclaimed Voodoo, bringing to an end a 14-year hiatus. The album blends 70's jazz-funk and neo-soul.


    Anyone who's been keeping up should be keen to the fact that the long-lusted over project was recorded in full analog, so the liner notes' PSA "For best results, listen at maximum volume" should be taken as a direct order for fervent D'lievers. And what better way to experience the gritty greatness of the release than a heavy-bodied vinyl pressing for the audio junkies?


    The album features tracks co-penned by Kendra Foster (Parliament/Funkadelic) and Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest). It's also co-produced by Questlove (The Roots), bassist Pino Palladino (John Mayer Trio, The RH Factor), and drummer James Gadson (Bill Withers, Temptations, Beck, Jamie Lidell).
