The album peaked at number fifty-eight on the Billboard 200 chart and produced five singles: Eric B. Is President, I Ain't No Joke, I Know You Got Soul, Move the Crowd, and Paid in Full.

    It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back (Awaiting Repress)

    Ranked 78/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.


    25th Anniversary


    I hated that record, said Public Enemy's Chuck D. Believe it or not, he's referring to Bring the Noise, the frenetic first track of It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, the group's 1988 agit-rap masterpiece and breakthrough album. Public Enemy had recorded the song in October 1987 for the soundtrack of the forgettable Less Than Zero. When Chuck (a.k.a. Carlton Ridenhour) first heard the final version, he said, I practically threw it out the window.


    He changed his mind later that year when Public Enemy were on tour in England. I kept hearing people ask, 'What's this record you've got out? People are going crazy over it,' he remembered. I was like 'OK, pull that acetate out, and let's play it [in concert].' People went berserk.


    Bring the Noise, along with Rebel Without a Pause and Don't Believe the Hype - all conceived in 1987 at the group's Hempstead, Long Island, studio, Spectrum City - would become the foundation of It Takes a Nation of Millions, an album that's loud, obnoxious, funky, avant-garde, political, uncompromising and hilarious all at once. Chuck may have been disgruntled over Bring the Noise, but he always liked Rebel Without a Pause, the track that introduced Public Enemy's trademark sirenlike horn squeals. Hank Shocklee of PE's production team, the Bomb Squad, says that Rebel started out as a response to Eric B. and Rakim's I Know You Got Soul. We were going for something that had the same feel but with more aggression, Shocklee said. Because we were angry.


    For Rebel, PE coupled piercing squeals (a snippet from the J.B.'s' The Grunt played backward) with James Brown's Funky Drummer (Because that song was my milk, said Shocklee). Then it fell on Chuck to write the lyrics. I remember locking myself in the house for 24 hours, Chuck said. He emerged with verses that emulated Rakim's off-the-rhythm flow but stayed true to his own booming-baritone persona (Soul, rock & roll, comin' like a rhino); Chuck also dropped the name of black activist Joanne Chesimard, hinting at the political direction that his rhymes would soon take.


    Don't Believe the Hype, recorded just before Bring the Noise, was Chuck's first foray into full-fledged polemics, in this case against the media. The lyrics were inspired by a slight against Chuck by New York-area radio DJ Mr. Magic. PE had serious doubts about that song, too. We thought 'Hype' was just garbage, said Shocklee. Again, they saw the response the song got when DMC (of the group Run-DMC) blasted the track out of his Bronco in Harlem on a Saturday night. The whole block was grooving to it, says Shocklee.


    In January 1988, it all fit together. You had the combination of the noise from 'Rebel,' says Chuck, the tempo of 'Bring the Noise' and the subject matter of 'Don't Believe the Hype.' It set off Takes a Nation pretty nice.

    Don't Sweat The Technique

    Don't Sweat the Technique is the fourth & final studio album by American hip hop duo Eric B. & Rakim, originally released on June 23, 1992, by MCA Records. It was recorded and produced by Eric B. & Rakim at The Hit Factory in New York City. The album builds on the sounds of 1990's Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em, with Rakim sounding more aggressive on Eric B.'s jazzy, soulful production.


    The album debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 chart in the week of July 11, 1992. It also charted at number nine on Top R&B Albums. The title track was a minor radio hit. Casualties of War was also released as a single and contains some of Rakim's most political lyrics. The single What's on Your Mind originally appeared on the soundtrack to the 1991 film House Party 2, while Know the Ledge first appeared in the film Juice under the title Juice (Know the Ledge).

    City Life

    City Life, arguably The Blackbyrds' best album, hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz Chart and #3 on the Billboard Soul Chart upon its original release in 1975.
    Produced by legendary jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd, the album showcases The Blackbyrd's' unique jazz-funk crossover sound and includes the runaway
    hits Happy Music and Rock Creek Park, which stand even today as pinnacles of the '70s jazz-funk movement. A testament to its lasting appeal, Rock
    Creek Park from the City Life album has been sampled numerous times by groups such as De La Soul, Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, N.W.A,
    Massive Attack, Ice Cube, Heavy D, Nas and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, Tone Loc and most recently, Wiz Khalifa. This often-sublime album
    is primed for rediscovery by fans of '70s funk, soul, jazz and fusion.

    Remastered


    Following 3 studio albums with original material (all available on Music on Vinyl) Rage Against The Machine
    offered a tribute to their musical heroes, showing a broad variety in their favourite artists and genres. The
    album (rel. 2000) proved to be their latest studio album and includes songs originally made famous by artists
    like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Minor Threat, Eric B. & Rakim, EPMD, MC5, The Rolling Stones, Cypress
    Hill, Devo and Afrika Bambaataa.


    Instead of just giving each song the hard-riffing-and-rapping treatment, each song is treated differently,
    resulting in a musically varied album. For instance, Renegades of Funk and ´Microphone Fiend´ have never
    been rocked so hard before, whereas The Ghost of Tom Joad is Rage Against The Machine more subtle than
    youve ever heard before!

    Beyond Ugly

    Domino is proud to present the third album, Beyond Ugly, from the Bristol, UK duo of Malachai.


    Beyond Ugly is the last panel in the band's Ugly triptych and that it was completed at all came as a
    shock to all concerned, least of all the group. After the conclusion of the campaign for their sophomore
    album, Return To The Ugly Side, members Gee Ealey and Scott Hendy drifted apart with no definitive
    plans to take up arms together. It was a chance meeting in Bristol that drew the two back into one
    another's orbit and to the realization that there was some unfinished monkey business. The duo reengaged slowly, simply working up a track at a time, more for the cathartic act of creating good music
    rather than the artificial construct of "delivering an album." Lo and behold, the creative process built
    an inertia of its own and Beyond Ugly began to take shape.


    And what a fine shape it is... Beyond Ugly recaptures the sonic stew of debut album, The Ugly Side
    Of Love, a potent of brew of post-summer of love and some good ol' Bristol-fashion psychedelic
    comedown. However, there's a healthy dose of renewed restlessness and anger emanating from Ealey
    that permeates the album thanks to some spirited vocal performances, from the anthemic and vengeful
    soliloquy of "Sweet Flower" to the civilly disobedient "I Deserve To No."


    Of course, Malachai isn't a one-man show. As Rakim had Eric B... Hendy, the duo's musical director, has
    truly outdone his past efforts and provides a sturdy musical platform from which Rev. Ealey delivers his
    sermons, whether the occasion calls for an exotic sturm-und-clang ("I Deserve To No") or a genteel softshoe waltz ("Hear It Comes").


    Malachai have always enjoyed // suffered the curse of being a "musician's band." Geoff Barrow of
    Portishead originally released The Ugly Side Of Love on his Invada imprint before Domino swooped
    in and there was no bigger proselytizer of Malachai's prowess than Sergio Pizzorno of Kasabian and
    both take their support a step further with guest appearances on "Dragons Ball" and "The Love"
    respectively. Additionally, "Segs" Jennings, bassist from punk legends The Ruts joins the fray on
    "Sweet Flower."


    The album concludes with a montage of hallucinations from across the band's discography before what
    can be best described as the ominous twilight tranquility of "End." Is this really where the Malachai
    story ends? As shown by the creative triumph of Beyond Ugly, sometimes it's best not to plan at all and
    just let it happen. We'll do our best to let you know when it does.

    Pilgrim (Awaiting Repress)

    Eric Clapton has metamorphosed from tie-dyed guitar god for a mostly male congregation to Armani-clad crooner and chart-certified ladies' man, yet it misses the point to focus on that transition without considering '90s forays into blues (on From The Cradle, his brilliant 1994 live-in-the-studio homage), techno, and the silky contemporary R&B of Change The World. Pilgrim, his first studio album of new songs since Journeyman, reflects all these facets in his most ambitious, and certainly darkest solo project. Its title isn't casual: These are elliptical meditations on the ravages of time, as preoccupied with matters of the spirit as affairs of the heart. My Father's Eyes opens the song cycle with allusions to the traumatic death of toddler son Conor (the inspiration for '92's poignant Tears In Heaven), while the title song adopts the fevered, falsetto vocal style of Curtis Mayfield to riveting effect. Coproducer Simon Climie sculpts electronic orchestrations and favors clipped synth rhythms, while Clapton himself largely eschews his once dominant, climactic electric solos for restrained but potent acoustic filigree, staccato riffs, and fluid rhythm work, letting loose with a rougher, more biting edge on the squalling She's Gone. --Sam Surtherland

Eric's voice and guitar playing shines all over whether he's doing a solo acoustic number as in Champagne Habits and the beautiful Lucky Man' Rag where he is joined by a wasboard player, or in the full band numbers such as the cover of the sixties Jackie Wilson hit Higher And Higher. Other favourites include the jazzy Home Lovin' Man where Janne Petersson's piano really stands out, the gospel of Right On Time and Tell Riley, a song about Bukka White and his cousin Riley B.(B.) King. There's even a guest appearence by Hubert Sumlin, the late Howlin Wolf's guitarist, who plays a solo on Too Much Stuff. Most of the songs are self-penned by Eric Bibb with wise storytelling and witty lyrics but there are some covers tastefully arranged including Randy Newman' ballad Every Time It Rains.

    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.

    Skin Deep

    Buddy Guy's new album, Skin Deep is his 10th Silvertone/Zomba studio release and it features all original material as well as collaborations with fellow guitar luminaries Eric Clapton, Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.


    Elaborating on his inspiration for the album title and song Skin Deep, Guy touches upon a powerful series of personal memories and observations on the ways in which were all the same underneath it all. I used to play with this boy, ride horses, down close to where I was born, he says. Then when we were 13, his parents made us stop. They used to say you had black blood or white blood, but wed get a flashlight and hold it up to our skin and wed just see red blood. Thats what I mean by 'Skin Deep.'


    In a career spanning more than 45 years, Buddy Guy continues to add to his ever-growing legacy. At the age of 72, he graced the cover of Rolling Stone, as part of the magazines recent '100 Greatest Guitar Songs' issue (his cataclysmic 1961 recording of Stone Crazy made the list) and he also turned in a show-stopping performance in Martin Scorseses Rolling Stones concert film, Shine A Light. Guy has won five Grammy Awards, 23 W.C. Handy 'wards (the most any one blues artist has received), a Congressional Medal of Arts and Billboard Magazine's prestigious The Century Award for 'distinguished artistic achievement. In 2005 Buddy Guy was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by friends Eric Clapton and B.B. King.

    The Raspberries Best

    Go All the Way: The Absolute Finest Singles from the 1970s Power-Pop Mavens


    Vocalist Eric Carmen and Co. Deliver One Punchy Chord and Contagious Melody After Another


    Britpop, Psychedelia, Pop, and Arena Rock Blends Drive Hits Such as "Go All the Way" and "I Wanna Be With You"


    Mellifluously Airy Harmonies: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Red Colored Vinyl


    The matching Mod suits, trim haircuts, and youthful appearance weren't just for play. The Raspberries' looks extended to their irresistibly catchy and refreshingly concise music, a blend of bouncy Britpop, lazy-day psychedelia, mellifluous pop, and crunch arena rock that stands apart from the epic pomposity of most of the early 70s' commercial trends and continues to linger as some of the most expertly crafted sounds ever created. Over the course of four albums, the singles-minded group cut their share of memorable sides. They're all here on this 1976 compilation. And now, they possess a fidelity that even the original LPs lacked.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's internationally renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP extracts more information from the grooves, extending the spaces between instruments and breathing newfound life into the swirling vocal harmonies. The group's trademark singing is airier, the highs free of constraints, and the string-laden accents enriched with natural decay. Improved, too, are the quartet's amplifier-driven chords and frisky drumming, aspects that possess a palpable crunch typical of British Invasion acts.


    Adept at both gorgeous devotional ballads and upbeat, fist-pumping rockers, the Raspberries claim a multifaceted talent in leader Eric Carmen, a crooner whose capacity to turn on a dime from a sweet falsetto to searing cry infuses the band's tunes with emotional exuberance and bittersweet weight. He lends sentimental grace to epic piano weepers such as "Don't Want to Say Goodbye" and amiable snarl to carefree numbers like "I Wanna Be With You." However, the Raspberries' greatest asset relates to their harmonic prowess.


    Multi-part group vocals on bounding, surf-referencing fare ("Drivin' Around") and catchy, summery material ("Tonight") recall both the Beach Boys and Beatles. Yet the Raspberries bring a unique edge and R&B-etched rhythm to tunes that stand as proto power-pop staples. Thematically, the ensemble keeps lyrics as simple and memorable as its hooks, with a majority of songs speaking to the pleasures of romance and love. Breezy, fun, and indelible, it's music that never goes out of style.
