Gregorian ChantFather Godehard Joppich leads the Benedictine Abbey for this recording of Gregorian Chants.
The present recording of Gregorian chants is an attempt to make use of the most up-to-date research into the chant in interpretation. We should like to be able to present the melodies in their original flexible rhythms. This intention can only be satisfactorily realized when authenticity of expression is allied to a revised musical text. It was therefore found necessary to re-examine the melodies as published in the Editio Vaticana. Indeed the Second Vatican Council encouraged us in this aim by recommending that Gregorian chant should continue to be of primary importance in the liturgy, while the chant-books already available should be critically revised. - from liner notes by Father Godehard JoppichSide A:

Tenderness JunctionA classic of the original NYC freak-folk scene!
The Fugs were the original outsider artists, releasing their first recordings on the legendary avant-garde label ESP-Disk' in the mid 1960s before signing to Reprise. Formed around the core of Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, The Fugs combined jug band music, smutty rock'n'roll, country ballads, Gregorian chants, canticles, and bohemian poetry into a stoned stew of anti-establishment freakouts! Now their first two albums for Reprise are available on vinyl for the first time since their original 1967-68 release.

AntiphonMidlake returns with their new studio album "Antiphon". An antiphon is a call-and-response style of singing, from Gregorian chants to sea shanties. In the
case of Denton, Texas' favorite sons Midlake, it's the perfect title for a bold response to a new phase in the band's illustrious career, with a re-jigged lineup
and a newly honed sound as rich and symphonic as it is dynamic and kaleidoscopic.
Anyone who knows Midlake's preceding albums will recognize some constituent parts of Antiphon: the quirky psychedelia of 2004 debut Bamnan and
Slivercork, the '70s soft-rock strains of breakthrough album The Trials Of Van Occupanther and the Brit-folk infusion of 2010's The Courage Of Others.
But their fourth album is another fascinating departure, but also a logical progression. The sound is simultaneously familiar and changed.
"It's always through the scope of Midlake," says vocalist/guitarist Eric Pulido, "but on Antiphon we wanted to embrace the psychedelia, style and nuance
you might hear in bands from yesteryear while also being aware of music influences leading up to and present now. The result was less folk and more
rock. Less nostalgic and more progressive. Now the sky's the limit."
This growth is down to the ambition and ability of Pulido (vocals, guitars, keyboards) Paul Alexander (bass, keyboards, bassoon, guitars, backing vocals),
McKenzie Smith (drums, percussion) and Eric Nichelson (guitars, autoharp), plus Jesse Chandler (keyboards, piano, flute, backing vocals) and Joey
McClellan (guitars, backing vocals) from Midlake's last live incarnation. But it's also down to the absence of Midlake's former principal singer Tim Smith,
who left the band in November 2012.In the fall-out over the spoils of what had been recorded, the remaining members decided to start afresh, and wrote
and recorded Antiphon in six harmonious months - bar 'Vale', which had been demoed without Smith during one of the sessions. With its ravishing,
rippling textures symptomatic of Antiphon's scale, 'Vale' showed how far they'd already come. The remaining nine tracks - the album is free-flowing in
feel, concise in structure - confirm it's very much Midlake, but uncannily rebooted, and relaxed.
After the costumed antics of the band's last two album covers, the color-saturated globe on Antiphon takes a different tack, and a broader picture outside
of Midlake's internal dynamic. "It conjures imagery of a celebratory fireworks display," Pulido suggests "but it's actually a diagram of an exclusive group of
connected entities with disproportionate amounts of control over the global economy. It's a beautiful way to show a darker side of things in the world."
Antiphon has a similarly paradoxical nature - from stress and upset, something positive and creative has emerged. Midlake is dead, long live Midlake.1. Antiphon

RuntTODD RUNDGREN'S DEBUT MASTERWORK!!!!
First Time Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray from the original Bearsville Records tapes
As founding member of the premiere late sixties power pop rockers Nazz, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter
and producer Todd Rundgren was barely in his 20's when he began his long solo journey with success as one of the music
industry's most prolific and celebrated rock artists.
His first solo album Runt showed a dazzling array of songs, displaying not only his rock and roll side but ventures into
jazz, R&B, eastern and blues. With help from his friends Hunt and Tony Sales, the power trio nailed one of the finest albums
of the classic rock era and also catapulted Todd Rundren's marquee as a singer/songwriter with his smash hit single We
Gotta Get You A Woman.
Ever the rock journeyman, Todd Rundgren had already produced, mixed or played on albums by legendary recording
artists like The Band and Paul Butterfield. Always called on to bring his musical genius for others, his initial hit recordings
that make up the Runt album show how versatile and important the artist is. Check out his burning guitar riffs on album
opener Broke Down And Busted or the gritty country blues feel of Once Burned, plus the New York funk/jazz of I'm In The
Clique, three fan favorites that truly have stood the test of time.
Known to write a hit ballad more than a few times in his career, Todd goes on record early here with one of his finest
tracks ever with his brilliant Believe In Me. Followed closely by his masterpiece We Gotta Get You A Woman, even more pop
sounds continue with his classic medley Baby Let's Swing/The Last Thing You Said/Don't Tie My Hands, and the haunting
Beach Boys/Gregorian Chant feel of There Are No Words.
This amazing album hasn't been on vinyl for several decades that is until now Friday Music is honored to announce
for the first time ever on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, the classic Todd Rundgren debut masterwork Runt. As a first installment
in our career spanning Todd Rundgren Friday Music180 Gram Audiophile Series, this limited edition album will also be presented for a short time in a first time gatefold cover which will feature the original inner sleeve artwork, not seen in decades.
Mastered from the authorized original Bearsville Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Todd Rundgren, Cheap Trick, Hall
& Oates) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, the Runt album will be one of the most anticipated audiophile albums
released this year.
