    G. Love & Special Sauce are a Philadelphia-based trio whose laid-back, sloppy blues sound is quite unique, as it encompasses the sound/production of classic R&B and recent rap artists (the Beastie Boys, in particular). The group is composed of G. Love (born Garrett Dutton) on guitar/vocals/harmonica, Jeff Clemens on drums, and Jim Prescott on upright bass. (All Music Guide)

    G. Love & Special Sauce's self-titled album is their debut and has reached gold status.


    On this record you can find their signature's tune Cold Beverage, featuring lighthearted jive lyrics and funky musical accompaniment, the video to this song got heavy rotation on MTV and it put them on the map. This Ain't Living is a precursor to the comforting Philly soul style that would be explored more thoroughly on their next album. Town to Town adds variety to the album with its slow-as-molasses blues style.


    G. Love & Special Sauce's debut serves as the musical foundation on which the group would build its future sound.

    Sugar

    Twenty years after the release of G. Love and Special Sauce's debut album, the original lineup of the revered hip-hop blues trio is back together for a new
    album, Sugar, and an extensive U.S. tour.


    I had a good idea for a riff off an old hip hop sample which I changed up, flipped upside down and played with a slide guitar, G. Love says about the first
    single Nothing Quite Like Home. We cut the song live with the trio at Brushfire in L.A and added the 'B' section and drum break. I had been talking to Dan
    Reynolds from Imagine Dragons earlier in the summer about working on something and I sent him the instrumental we cut. He penned the lyrics and sent
    back a real tight demo over the instrumental. Later I added my vocals and got a helping hand from two of my favorite singers -- Ben Harper, who just
    brought the chorus to another level, and Marc Broussard, who added some nice backgrounds.


    SUGAR reunites G. Love, upright bassist James Jimi Jazz Prescott and drummer Jeffrey The Houseman Clemens for the first time in eight years.
    Tracked largely at Brushfire Records' Solar Powered Plastic Plant studio in L.A, the disc also features Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo, current Oscar
    nominee Merry Clayton - best known for her duet with Mick Jagger on the Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter - and others.

    G I R L

    Redefining cool for a new generation, Pharrell Williams is a creative force, using music, fashion, and design to express his distinctive style. From his beginnings as a teenage prodigy and multi-instrumentalist in Virginia Beach back in the early '90s, through enough hits to earn him Billboard's Producer of the Decade in 2010, to his current status as multi-media superstar, Williams has never stopped creating. Starting his producing career as one half of The Neptunes with Chad Hugo, Williams has helped create such classics as Daft Punk's Get Lucky, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, Nelly's Hot in Herre, Jay-Z's I Just Wanna Love U (Give it 2 Me), Britney Spears's I'm A Slave 4 U, and Justin Timberlake's Like I Love You.


    With over 100 million copies of his productions sold, his music sounds like something no one else has thought of just yet. He's also created a new way of looking at established stars like SnoopDogg, Madonna, and even the Rolling Stones. Over four albums, Williams and Hugo along with Shae Haley created an unpredictable hybrid as part of the alt-rock/hip-hop group N.E.R.D. His prolific body of work also ranges from designing a sculpture with Tokyo-born artist Takashi Murakami to accessories and jewelry for luxury goods brands Louis Vuittonand Moncler. Now, with his latest venture i am OTHER a multi-media creative collective that serves as an umbrella for all his endeavors, including Billionaire Boys Club & ICECREAM apparel, textile company Bionic Yarn and dedicated YouTube channel Williams' vision continues to push pop culture forward.

Currently in the US, the song generates over 120 million weekly audience impressions across 6 radio formats - Top 40, Rhythm, Hot AC, Urban, Urban AC, and AAA. Happy has also just been certified Platinum.

    Love Calls (Pure Pleasure)

    Think of 'Lockjaw' Davis and ten to one you think of Count Basie. Think of Paul Gonsalves and - same thing, you think of Duke Ellington. The top tenors, in other words, of the top big bands; musicians from the top league where the competition is toughest. Yet there is no battle here, no contest, no vying to outdo the other in terms of velocity.


    If you know these two men only by hearsay, you may have reservations about them as balladeers. They both have reputations for derring-do of a different kind. Davis has never hesitated to do battle with the most frenetic performers, with those who would stick at nothing to win, and lost - to him. And Gonsalves was the hero of one of the great nights in jazz history, when he blew twenty-seven romping, stomping choruses on Duke Ellington's Diminuendo And Crescendo In Blue at Newport 1956.


    It is easy for jazzmen to become typed, so that the public demands the repeated display of just one particular facet of his talent. This has happened to the two men showcased in this album, where the other side of their musical personalities is brought into focus. Although they have both developed highly individual styles, their original sources of inspiration were masters of the ballad - Ben Webster in Davis' case, Coleman Hawkins in that of Gonsalves.


    Their different approaches to the ballad make this recording consistently interesting and surprising. Both are soulful, both are rhapsodical. But Davis plays with clear, confident articulation, a buzz in his tone, and a bite in his phraseology. Generally he is the more driving and passionate of the two. The Gonsalves style is, on the other hand, sinuous, insinuating and less direct. His imaginative lyricism is more tender and often melancholy, his tone well-produced and finely rounded.


    The breathy sub-tone, which Gonsalves uses so well, adds a curiously confidential and intimate dimension. It is like the musical equivalent of a whispered aside or a delicate suggestion. But both men alternate very adroitly between the discreet and the bold. Their mutual understanding is, in fact, positively uncanny at times, for they had never previously recorded together, and preparation before the sessions was minimal. In the studio their long term professionalism stood them in good stead, as did that of their accompanists, whose taste and sensitivity contribute so much to the recording's appeal. Never obtrusive, they remain in close, listening support, Hanna and Barksdale being quick to prolong or emphasize the thoughts of the two soloists.


    Musicians:



    • Eddie 'Lockjaw' Harris, Paul Gonsalves (tenor saxophone)

    • Roland Hanna (piano)

    • Everett Barksdale (guitar)

    • Ben Tucker (bass)

    • Grady Tate (drums)

    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.

    That's The Way Love Is

    When "That's The Way Love Is," from the album M.P.G. became such a huge hit, Motown issued an album of the same name, and included the title song as its centerpiece. The album, which went Top 20 R&B, is also significant for Marvin's cover versions of recent pop hits, particularly "Abraham, Martin and John" (a U.K. hit) and "Yesterday," now recognized as one of the greatest interpretations of a Beatles song.

    Where Is Love (Pure Pleasure)

    This classic set, originally cut for the Choice label, presents a program of ballads exquisitely interpreted by singer Irene Kral and pianist Alan Broadbent. The tempos are all quite slow, but the emotional yet cool intensity given by Kral and Broadbent means that there are no slow moments. Among the songs given definitive and memorable treatment are Blossom Dearie's I Like You, You're Nice and Bob Dorough's Love Came on Stealthy Fingers, Never Let Me Go, and especially Spring Can Really Hang You up the Most. This is a haunting program, Irene Kral's best; it sticks in one's memory long afterwards and can be considered one of the finest sets of ballads ever recorded. Essential music.



    Musicians:



    • Irene Kral (vocal)

    • Alan Broadbent (piano)

    Back For A Taste Of Your Love

    A rollicking vocalist and gifted harmonica player, Syl Johnson has forged a career in both blues and soul. The brother of bassist Mac Thompson and guitarist/vocalist Jimmy Johnson, Syl Johnson sang and played with blues artists Magic Sam, Billy Boy Arnold, and Junior Wells in the '50s before recording with Jimmy Reed for Vee-Jay in 1959. He made his solo debut that same year with Federal. Johnson toured with Howlin' Wolf from late 1959 until 1962, when Willie Mitchell signed him to Hi Records.


    Johnson recorded for both Twilight and Hi in the late '60s and early '70s, clicking with the dance/novelty cut Come on Sock It to Me and crackling message track Is It Because I'm Black? He had his biggest hit with Take Me to the River in 1975, reaching number seven on the R&B charts. Johnson later recorded for Shama and Boardwalk. He reappeared on a collaboration with his brother Jimmy in the summer of 2002, humorously titled Two Johnsons Are Better Than One.


    [Back For A Taste Of Your Love] ...moves his hard Chicago soul groove over to Willie Mitchell's production style, which has a bit more of a mellow tip to it. Syl wrote a number of the tracks, and the titles include I'm Yours, Feelin' Frisky, I Hate I Walked Away, and The Love You Left Behind.

    The Man I Love (Pure Pleasure)

    Around the same time that Peggy Lee decamped her longtime label home, Capitol Records, for what turned out to be a five-year sojourn at Decca Records in 1952, an apparently washed-up Frank Sinatra signed with Capitol. In 1957, when Lee returned to Capitol, Sinatra had re-established himself as a major recording artist. Meanwhile, the recording world had changed with the emergence of the 12-inch LP as an industry standard. The Man I Love, Lee's first recording for Capitol in the format after re-signing, matched her with the company's flagship artist, Sinatra, who was credited as the album's conductor, his name printed on the front cover in the same size as Lee's. A year earlier, Sinatra had conducted his Tone Poems Of Color album for Capitol, and though the singer did not read music and relied on arranger Nelson Riddle, he again proved himself able to make his intentions clear in working with Lee.



    The Man I Love is a concept album in the manner pioneered by Sinatra at Capitol, a group of 12 songs chosen to express a single theme. That theme, as the title suggests, is a woman's unwavering devotion to a man, as expressed in songs often composed by gilt-edged songwriters (Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Kern, etc.) and taken from Broadway shows. The result is a superb pairing of singer, conductor, and arranger on an album that re-conceives Lee as a Capitol recording artist in the Sinatra concept album mold.

    • Peggy Lee (vocal)

    • Nelson Roddle (arranger)

    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.

    Wear Your Love Like Heaven (Speakers Corner)

    Donovan Philip Leitch may well share a proletarian origin with several of the folk bards of his time. But comparisons with the top dog Dylan have worn thin and are not worth the effort since Donovan never was neither vocally nor thematically brusque - and moreover he created his own standards. He quickly converted the pacifist message of The Universal Soldier into positive thoughts and his poetry was concerned with history, sagas, myths and magic. »Lord, kiss me once more, fill me with song« he prays in Wear Your Love Like Heaven, and if this makes you sentimental then you are on the right wavelength. However, the »seller of hope« (Donovan on Donovan) triggers off a few psychedelic nerve tracts: whether it be a personal experience in echo form (Sun) or the sprechgesang and whistling of a vocal group (Little Boy In Corduroy) - light, gentle but perceptibly formed. That Donovan set far more than cheerful texts to the guitar is proven by the use of sawing stationary sound of the organ, low-register string passages and subtle rhythms, which raises his song repertoire miles above routine. A nice 'folksy guy' who merely loves the sun, moon and stars just cannot exist in times of war.


    This Speakers Corner production was manufactured 100% analogously, with the use of the analogue mastertape and analogue mastering. All royalties and mechanical rights have been paid.


    Musicians:



    • Donovan (vocals, guitar)

    • Mike O'Neil (organ,piano, harpsichord,)

    • Eric Leese (guitar)

    • Harold McNair (flute)

    • Mike Carr (vibraphone)

    • Jack Bruce, Cliff Barton (bass)

    • Keith Webb (drums)

    • Candy John Carr (conga, bongo)

    Lovely And Alive (Speakers Corner)

    Singing actors and actresses do not always cut a good figure on the silver screen; play-acting singers, however, are all the better when they draw attention to themselves with great vocals. As did Lena Horne in the days of the black-and-white film, who, with her sultry, versatile voice, was constantly employed by Hollywood. Although she occasionally ventured into the world of jazz, and made music with Teddy Wilson and Benny Carter, she never forayed into the wide world of improvisation. Her musical home was in the American Songbook, which she approached with a natural and entertaining manner. A good example of this is the first number here - the Cole Porter classic I Concentrate On You, which swings along to the perfectly recorded big-band sound of the Marty Paich Orchestra. A surprise element is the extensive palette of vocal sound-colouring with which the diva enhances her voice to achieve the drama of a Shirley Bassey or the dusky depths of a Dinah Washington. Each and every number on this Grammy-worthy album has been thought out in great detail and guarantees sophisticated entertainment, and a hint of West Coast jazz is perceptible when Jack Sheldon treats us to the sound of his warm and dark trumpet solos.

    Three Loves Have I (Pure Pleasure)

    A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tito Rodriguez came to New York City in 1939 to sing with his brother's band. He learned to play a variety of instruments before succeeding as a vocalist with Enric Madriguera, Xavier Cugat, Noro Morales, and JosÉ Curbelo. In 1947 he started his first band with RenÉ Hernández, Cachao Lopez, and Victor Paz.


    Several of the great Latin-American singers went on to form their own aggregations, but Rodriguez was the most successful. One reason is the music, which has the hip drive of Tito Puente (whom he copied during the Palladium battles of the 'two Titos') and the Palmieri brothers. Eddie Palmieri and company perform on some of his best albums. In fact, he and Puente, 'the two Titos' headlining at New York City's famous Palladium, were rivals for the title of Mambo King until Perez Prado took it.


    While Tito Rodriguez played mambo on a par with the others, it was his voice that set him apart. Whether it's mambo, Latin twist, or sentimental ballads, Rodriguez rarely strayed far from authentic or progressive Latin. Indeed, no other performer epitomizes the Latin showman as well as he: top vocal stylist, versatile musician, sophisticated arranger-composer, handsome bandleader, leader of the New York Latin scene. Tito Rodriguez' music is quintessential.


    Given the popularity of all three rhythms listed in the title, it's no surprise that Tito would think of them as his 'loves' - especially since they'd all helped spur on new energy in Latin music! But over and above the rhythms, the album itself is one of Tito's greatest from the 50s - spare, lean, and with a style that's both lively and jazzy - never dipping into some of the too-heavy modes that Tito succumbed to in later years. Tracks are all short, with lots of horn work on top of the percussion.
