    The Fall

    For this record, I just had a sound in my head, says Norah Jones. I wanted the grooves to be more present and heavy. And I also just wanted to do something different. Ive been hanging with the same group of musicians for a long time, and I thought it was a good time for me to work with different people and experiment a little.


    The result of these experiments is the multiple Grammy Award-winners new album, The Fall. The album is an exciting evolution from her previous three releases, which have sold a combined 36 million copies worldwide. The first obvious change on The Fall is a lengthy list of new collaborators. Producer Jacquire King, who has worked with Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse, and Tom Waits, among others, helped Jones put together a group of musicians, including drummers Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M.) and James Gadson (Bill Withers), keyboardist James Poyser (Erykah Badu, Al Green), and guitarists Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) and Smokey Hormel (Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer). Jones also joined forces with several notable songwriters on The Fall, including Ryan Adams and Okkervil Rivers Will Sheff, as well as her frequent collaborator Jesse Harris.

    Field Notes

    Wil Blades Field Notes features guitarist Jeff Parker of Tortoise and drummer Simon Lott from New Orleans.


    "He is the future to carry on the legend, the legacy of the organ, of the B-3." - Dr. Lonnie Smith


    When Wil Blades sits down at the Hammond B3, count on inspired music to follow. The 34-year old, Chicago-native, Berkeley-based artist is a cornerstone organist of his generation-a modern voice in a lineage that includes giants like Richard "Groove" Holmes, Charles Earland and Brother Jack McDuff.


    Having studied at the feet of the legendary Dr. Lonnie Smith and played alongside the likes of John Lee Hooker, Melvin Sparks and Idris Muhammad, Blades has absorbed the spirit of the masters. His extensive collaborations also reflect the high regard in which he's held by contemporaries, including Stanton Moore, Anders Osborne and Nicholas Payton.
    Having released a critically acclaimed co-led duo album Shimmy with Medeski Martin & Wood drummer Billy Martin in 2012, Blades returns with a deeply soulful and sinuous nine-track effort, Field Notes, on which he's found fronting his own trio featuring Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker and New Orleans' drummer Simon Lott.


    From the recording's outset, it's easy to picture Blades fingers free-flowing across the keys, feet gliding along the bass pedals in a continuous dance. Syncopation drives songs like "Miller's Time" and "Addis" as the trio locks in tight to a relentless groove. But there's also a refined harmonic vision and deep affection for melody on tracks like "(I Can't Stand) The Whole Lott of You" and "Dewey" where Blades' Clavinet adds a fresh sonic dimension to the proceedings. Shades of psychedelia are weaved within "Parks 'N' Wreck," while a tip of the hat to vintage soul jazz balladry informs "Forgetful" and classic pop swing is at the heart of "I Get The Blues When It Rains."


    In its sum, Field Notes is a masterful statement from an artist who's poised to keep the timeless sound of the Hammond B3 organ as vital and compelling today as it's ever been in the history of modern jazz and rock.

    The Girl From Bossa Nova (Discontinued)

    Jacintha picks up the tempo in her first bossa nova session. Featuring a program of some of the most well known classics of the genre including several Jobim favorites like So Nice, Desafinado, Dindi, Corcovado, as well as less familiar tunes like O Ganso and So Danco Samba, The Girl From Bossa Nova is a striking change of pace for Jacintha that will enthrall all of her fans. With superb solos from tenor Harry Allen and acoustic guitar from John Pisano (ex-Diane Krall), the album is given the supreme finishing touch by the magical playing of Brazilian master percussionist P. D Costa who's recorded and performed with all the legends - Jobim, J Gilberto, Gilberto Gil, Astrid etc. His contribution truly gives the entire album it's authentic bossa nova vibe. And yes, there are a couple of classic Jacintha ballads done bossa style -- This Masquerade and Dindi. A must buy for Jacintha fans and all bossa nova lovers.

    The American guitarist, singer and songwriter Gary Lourdis was founding member of the Minneapolis-based band The Jayhawks and their principal songwriter and vocalist after the departure of Mark Olson. He eventually was responsible for moving the band from folk-country towards a more progressive, pop sound. The band formed in 1985 in Minneapolis and appeared on Letterman in 2003, performing "Save It For A Rainy Day," off their Rainy Day Music album. They recorded seven albums for Columbia before going on hiatus in 2005. The band briefly reunited in 2011 for a new album and tour only to return to a hiatus when Olson left again in 2012.


    Louris' additional credits include being a member of the intermittent Midwest collective, Golden Smog that recorded two albums on Rykodisc and two albums on Lost Highway from 1995 to 2007, as well as co-writing "Jealous of Moon" with Chris Thile in 2005-the song appeared on the Nickel Creek album Why Should The Fire Die?-and songs for the 2008 Dixie Chicks album Taking The Long Way.


    In 2008, Rykodisc released Gary's first solo album Vagabonds. The album was produced by Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson. In an interview, Louris was quoted as saying," It wasn't my intention to recapture the '70s or anything, that's just what comes out when I sing .Once we got the band together for the sessions, it actually reminded me of how The Jayhawks were when we started out. The music is new and exciting for them, and it was good for me to feed off of that." Vagabonds was recorded in Laurel Canyon, which is famous for being the center of the 1970s singer-songwriter scene, and is expanded here with bonus material from the sessions-many making their debut to vinyl, and others new to any physical format

    A Lost Classic From The 1990s That Includes Jeff Tweedy Of Wilco, Dan Murphy Of Soul Asylum & Gary Louris Of The Jayhawks


    Golden Smog is a Minneapolis-based, loosely connected inter-changeable group of musicians from notable bands comprising members of Wilco, Soul Asylum, The Replacements, The Jayhawks, Run Westy Run, Big Star and the Honeydogs. Since their inception in 1989, many members have come and gone, with the following musicians having appeared on all recordings: Kraig Johnson (Run Westy Run), Dan Murphy (Soul Asylum), Gary Louris (Jayhawks) and bassist Marc Perlman (Jayhawks). The group originally played in and around Minneapolis doing mainly cover song sets as a country-rock reaction to the punk and hardcore music that dominated the region. In 1995 they released their debut album, "Down By the Old Mainstream," recorded at Pachyderm Recording Studio that was made up of mainly original material with a few covers. Drummer Chris Mars of the Replacements was gone by now and the line-up consisted of Johnson, Murphy, Louris, Perlman and two new members: Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and Honeydogs drummer Noah Levy. All members were credited under pseudonyms to avoid contractual issues with their other record companies.

    Bettye Lavette-born Betty Jo Haskins, from Detroit, Michigan-is easily one of the most
    important yet sometimes overlooked soul singer/songwriter of all time. She made her first
    record at the age of 16 in 1962 when she was signed by local Detroit record producer Johnnie
    Mae Matthews and recorded the single "My Man-He's A Lovin' Man," which became a Top
    Ten R&B hit after Atlantic Records bought distribution rights. Its success led to a tour with
    Clyde McPhatter, Ben E. King, Barbara Lynn and Otis Redding. She recorded the Wreich
    Holloway-written song, "Let Me Down Easy," on Calla Records in 1965 and became a chart
    hit (#48), leading to a brief stint with the James Brown Revue. After recording more singles
    for local Detroit labels, Lavette signed to Silver Fox in 1969 and recorded a handful of songs,
    including two Top 40 R&B Hits: "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" and "Do Your Duty," both
    produced by Lelan Rogers and featuring the Memphis studio musicians who later became
    known as the Dixie Flyers.


    In 1972, Bettye signed with Atlantic/Atco and was sent to the famed Muscle Shoals Sound
    Studios in Alabama to record a full-length album. Produced by Brad Shapiro and featuring
    the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the album was supposed to originally be titled as Child
    of the Seventies but Atco chose to shelve the project at the time. Years later, after Bettye
    played her own personal recordings of the sessions for French soul music collector, Gilles
    Petard, he chased down the master recordings at Atlantic Records where they were thought
    to have been destroyed in a fire. In 1999 after obtaining the masters, he licensed the material
    and released it on CD in 2000 as Souvenirs through his Art and Soul label (Rhino Handmade
    would later reissue Child of the Seventies on CD with previously unreleased 1973 tracks).
    The album helped to spark renewed interest in Lavette and in 2003, A Woman Like Me, was
    released and won the 2004 W.C Handy Award for "Comeback Blues Album of the Year."
    Lavette then signed to the Rosebud Agency and was brought to the attention of Andy Kaulkin
    at ANTI Records who signed her to a 3-album deal. The first project was produced by Joe
    Henry and featured an album of songs written entirely by women: I've Got My Own Hell To
    Raise was successful in helping to raise awareness of Bettye and was on many critics' Best of
    2005 lists. Since her release on ANTI, she has gone on to many accomplishments, including
    receiving a Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 2006, A Blues Music
    Award for Best Contemporary Female Blues Singer in 2008 and another Blues Music Award
    in 2016 for Soul Blues Female Artist of the Year.

    Born October 7, 1944, and hailing from California, Judith
    Lynn Sill was an American singer-songwriter who learned
    how to play piano in her father's Oakland bar. She met,
    befriended and started opening shows for Graham Nash
    and David Crosby in the mid-to-late 1960s.


    After a bit of interest from Atlantic Records, David Geffen
    offered Judee a contract and she became the first artist to
    sign with his then-fledgling Asylum label. During her early
    days at Asylum, she sold her song "Lady-O" to the Turtles and
    was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone. Graham Nash
    produced her first single, "Jesus Was A Cross Maker," off her
    self-titled debut album which was released on September
    15, 1971 and engineered by Henry Lewy (Joni Mitchell). The
    song was inspired by her romance with singer-songwriter
    JD Souther, who later wrote the song "Something In the
    Dark" about her. The album featured Sill's voice in multiple
    overdubs, often in a four-part chorale or fugue. Her debut
    album was not a commercial success, despite good reviews.
    Sill took over orchestration and arrangements for her
    second album, Heart Food, which was released in March
    of 1973. The album was critically acclaimed but sold poorly
    and ended her association with Asylum and David Geffen.


    Judee continued to write songs and in 1974 began to record
    new material planned for a third album that was never
    finished. Sill continued to struggle with drug addiction
    and health problems, eventually dropping out of the music
    scene completely. Judee tragically died of a drug overdose
    on November 23, 1979, at her apartment in North Hollywood.


    Sill's music was not commercially viable at the time but
    was incredibly influential as well as ground-breaking and
    many notable songwriters such as Andy Partridge, Liz Phair,
    Warren Zevon and Shawn Colvin have been fans of her work.
    Her songs have been covered by the Hollies, Cass Elliott,
    Warren Zevon, Beth Orton, Bill Callahan, Bonnie Prince Billy,
    Ron Sexsmith, The Fruit Bats and many more.

    American indie-pop band Luna originally formed in 1991 by singer/guitarist Dean Wareham
    after the breakup of Galaxie 500. After Wareham quit Galaxie 500 he signed a demo deal
    with Elektra Records, then recruited Justin Harwood from the Chills and Stanley Demeski of
    the Feelies, and this line up recorded their debut, Lunapark. After the album's release, Sean
    Eden was recruited on guitar and the four piece recorded a number of cover versions that
    would become the Slide EP and then toured the U.S. This began the band's association with
    successfully recording and playing cover songs.


    In 1993, the band supported the reformed Velvet Underground on their European tour, after which they recorded their second album.
    Bewitched was recorded in NY, released in '94 and included Velvet Underground guitarist
    Sterling Morrison on two tracks. In 1995, the band went into Sorcerer Sound Studio with
    producer Pat McCarthy to record their third album, Penthouse. The album featured Television
    guitarist Tom Verlaine on the tracks, "Moon Palace," and "23 Minutes in Brussels." The
    album was released to critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone declaring it one of the essential
    albums of the '90s. The album featured a cover of Serge Gainsbourg's "Bonnie and Clyde"
    as a hidden track and featured Dean in a duet with Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab. "Bonnie and
    Clyde" was released as a single in the UK and named Melody Maker single of the week. Pup
    Tent followed in '97.


    In 1999, the band recorded The Days Of Our Nights for Elektra, but the
    label declined the album and dropped the band over commercial concerns. The record was
    eventually released on Jericho in the U.S. and prior to the album's release, Justin Harwood
    left to be replaced by Britta Phillips. After releasing Luna Live in 2001, Romantica in 2002
    and Rendezvous in 2004 with their new line-up, the band announced their final tour at the
    time, disbanding after a show at the Bowery Ballroom in February of 2005. Dean Wareham
    and Britta Phillips continued as the duo Dean & Britta. In 2014, Dean announced that Luna
    would reunite for a tour of Spain in 2015, to be followed by US dates.

    In 2017 they recorded
    two new releases, a new covers LP called A Sentimental Journey and a 6-song instrumental
    EP, A Place Of Greater Safety.


    This brand new ROG collection of Elektra-era cover songs includes rare and out of print tracks
    that have never been released or collected on full length vinyl. With new packaging design by
    Frank Olinsky and updated audio fidelity, it's a dream come true for Luna collectors.

    Highlights From The Fun House Sessions (On Sale)

    Pressed On 180g, Multi-Color Vinyl And Pressed At Record Industry

    Each 2-LP Set Is Individually Numbered And Strictly Limited

    Comes In A Gatefold Tip-On Stoughton Sleeve With Brand New Artwork

    1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions was recorded at Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles and compiled from all thirteen reels of multi-track tape that held every note and snippet of studio dialogue. Twelve reels of tape were used during the original sessions, with the thirteenth reel having the takes that would be used on the studio album.

    This sprawling set which was originally aimed at the collector market would be challenging and cost prohibitive to reissue as a multi-disc vinyl box set. What is presented here is an attempt to assemble some of the best highlights from the Fun House Sessions on an officially-released 2LP set in high quality packaging with a sequence that hopefully proves to be an easier, and more casual listen.

    Included are some terrific alternate versions of Down on the Street,Loose, Dirt, Funhouse, 1970 and others, pulled from session reels 1,4, 6, 7, 9 and 11 and originally recorded on May 11, 12, 15, 18, 21 and 25 of 1970. Also notable is the inclusion of the 17+ minute version of L.A. Blues,titled as Freak, which encompasses the entire fourth side of this set and is the prime example of what makes the Fun House Sessions both loved and feared.

    Let 'Em Roll

    During the Blue Note 75th anniversary celebration the label released 100 essential Blue Note LPs and asked New York Times readers what titles they'd like to see make the list. This album is one of five new reissues that were hand-selected by Blue Note President, Don Was, based on New York Times reader recommendations.


    In an unusual setting for a groove/soul jazz setting, B3 organist extraordinaire big John Patton creates a band around himself that includes Grant Green, drummer Otis Finch, and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson. It's truly weird to think of vibes on a groove date, but the way Patton's understated playing works, and the way Green is literally all things to all players, Hutcherson's role is not only a clearly defined one, but adds immeasurably to both depth and texture on this date.


    What also makes this possible is the symbiotic relationship between Patton and Green. There is a double groove conscious swing happening on every track here, from the bluesed-out slip and slide of the title track which opens the record to a killer version of Hank Mobley's The Turnaround, which expands the blues vibe into solid soul territory because of Hutcherson's ability to play pianistically and slip into the funk groove whenever necessary. Green's deadly in his solo on the track, shimmering arpeggios through Patton's big fat chords and chunky hammering runs.


    Also notable are Patton's own tunes, the most beautiful of which is Latona, a floating Latin number with a killer salsa rhythm in 6/8. As Patton vamps through the chorus, Green slips in one of his gnarliest solos ever. It begins with a groove like run in the hard bop blues and then shoves itself into overdrive, capturing the cold sweat of a Bola Sete or Wes Montgomery in his groove years. But when Green goes for the harmonic edges, all bets are off: Hutcherson lays out, and he and Patton go running to the bridge and bring the melody back just in time to take it out.


    This is one of the least appreciated of Patton's records, and there's no reason for it; it is great.

    Us And The Night

    Grammy Award®-nominated, multiplatinum Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down have announced their sixth full-length album, Us And The Night.


    "In The Dark" shows a different side of 3 Doors Down. Fans will recognize the robust riffing, but it flaunts a sexy and striking chant that emphasizes a new groove and swagger altogether.
    On the new album Brad Arnold notes: "We're all excited to release our new album Us And The Night. It's truly been a labour of love and we can't wait to get these songs out to our fans around the world."


    Following 2011's Time of My Life, which landed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and The Greatest Hits in 2012, the band continued its non-stop touring, performing for audiences across the globe. Gearing up for Us And The Night the group recorded the album at Rivergate Studios in Nashville, TN with producer Matt Wallace [Maroon 5, Train, Faith No More] over the course of 2015. It nods to the spirit of their breakout debut with seasoned songwriting and the biggest and boldest songs of their career to date.

    Torment (Awaiting Repress)

    Six Feet Under return with their 12th studio album and a leap in intensity. There's plenty of classic Six Feet Under groove to be had on Torment, but fans will note a much more aggressive approach, and even more modern blast beats throughout. This is a cantankerous Six Feet Under with absolutely nothing to prove. This is Six Feet Under at its most deadly.


    Torment was brought to life by Chris Barnes with bassist/guitarist Jeff Hughell (Brain Drill) shouldering the load of writing the music, along with heralded drummer Marco Pitruzzella (Brain Drill, Anomalous, Sleep Terror). The combination of Barnes' multi-decade death metal experience and the speed and precision of Hughell and Pitruzzella's relative youth go a long way to cementing this as a solid foundation for high-level death metal. This is immediately apparent in the first track "Sacrificial Kill" and expanded further right away in the second track "Exploratory Homicide". Both Hughell and Pitruzzella are allowed to play their style of metal with a unique Six Feet Under flair. That's what makes "Torment" a unique and welcome addition to the band's stories catalog.


    Chris Barnes elaborates on Torment: "I've been lucky to have a lot of standout albums in my career. That's only because I've had a great many talented writing partners and musicians to collaborate with. Our new album, Torment, to me, is one of those albums. Jeff Hughell has provided the flammable material for me to write some explosive lyrics and vocal parts to. I know people always say, "this is my best album ever", and I won't say that, because everyone has their own favorites, but I do enjoy creating new music, and I feel as though with this one we expressed concisely and to the fullest the duality of our music.


    "I have also found it important over the years, going back to the start of my career, that the artwork for our albums gets to express, on some level, what the experience is within. To do that this time around we were able to incorporate an amazing new artist, Septian Devenum, to take on the task of visually bringing this album to life. Every song on the album is depicted with a piece of artwork that explores the lyrical content of each song, similar to what we did for the packaging for our album Bringer of Blood. Torment has been a great album to work on and help create, we hope all of our fans appreciate it."

    Enjoy The View

    NEA Jazz Master Bobby Hutcherson makes his triumphant return to Blue Note Records, where the virtuoso vibraphonist started his career in the early
    '60s, with the superb album, Enjoy the View. The vibrant session is produced by Blue Note president Don Was and will be released as a
    significant event in the label's 75th anniversary yearlong celebration. Recorded by an all-star collective of saxophonist David Sanborn and organist Joey
    DeFrancesco, and featuring drummer Billy Hart, the Hutcherson-sparked group plays seven original compositions that range from cool, gentle grooves to
    fiery outbursts of exuberance.

    KAB Super Record Grip - Push On Record Clamp (On Sale)

    The newly redesigned KAB super record grip was designed to replace and improve upon the PIG clamp originally supplied with the Revolver brand turntables. This new design features a 2 piece precision molded frame, spring rubber insert and UHMW polyethylene non marring contact surface. This is especially useful on Rega brand turntables and others where there is very little spindle to grab on to.


    The KAB Super Record Grip reduces resonance and acoustic vibration of the record itself, freeing the stylus to do its intended job of tracing the groove. The result is better focus and detail to the soundstage.


    The Super record grip attaches quickly; by turning with slight pressure, it walks down the spindle and meets the record surface.


    Note: For easier use, the center hole can be lubricated with a diluted solution of 5% Armor All® and alcohol, swabbed with Qtip®.


    The built-in bubble level shows turntable level at a glance to within 1 degree of accuracy.


    Spring reinforced rubber insert holds onto the turntable spindle firmly.


    The built in bubble level allows a quick check of turntable level. A level turntable balances the forces of the needle in the groove.


    When the needle is resting in the record groove, the entire record surface behaves as a microphone picking up vibrations from the air and the turntable below. Damping the record surface reduces the affect of these added vibrations to the needle's already difficult job of reading the groove.


    The really great features to take note of with the KAB super record grip is the ease of use and cost effectiveness.


    The super record grip represents great value. Yet it is quite good at what it does and even has the added benefit of showing level at a glance, each time you use it. Keeping with the KAB philosophy that more is better, but it needn't cost more!


    One issue to be sensitive to is turntables with light floating spring suspensions. You will have to push down some while applying the super record grip. It does not rely on weight. (It only weighs 2 Oz) Be sure your turntable can Bottom Out safely. If this is a concern, consult your turntable maker first.


    [In our opinion, if you can bottom out safely, the super grip is a better solution still over clamps that rely on weight, since they will change the operating height of your platter.]

The album is a 12-track tour de force produced by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Andra Day) featuring 10 new original songs along with covers of Allen Toussaint (Here Come The Girls) and The Meters (It Ain't No Use). True to its title, the album contains multitudes of sound-from brass band blare and deep-groove funk to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger - and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as he says, Music brings unity.

    1 Hopeful Rd

    Over the past few years, Vintage Trouble have wowed audiences across the globe by opening for The Rolling Stones in London's Hyde Park, touring with legends like The Who and AC/DC, and playing sold-out headline shows worldwide. Now, on their first album for Blue Note Records, the Los Angeles-based foursome - singer Ty Taylor, guitarist Nalle Colt, bassist Rick Barrio Dill, and drummer Richard Danielson channel the vitality and passion of their live show into a fresh and urgent take on guitar-powered rhythm & blues. Produced by Blue Note president and three-time Grammy Award-winner Don Was, 1 Hopeful Rd. finds Vintage Trouble building off the groove-fueled sound that Yahoo! once painted as ''James Brown singing lead for Led Zeppelin'' and blending blues, soul, and riff-heavy rock & roll with joyfully gritty abandon. As heard on lead single ''Run Like the River,'' 1 Hopeful Rd. matches Vintage Trouble's emotional intensity with a raw yet sophisticated musicianship that's prompted the New York Times to name the band modern-day answer to Otis Redding and BBC Radio 6 to anoint them ''the heirs of rhythm and blues.''

    Wise Up Ghost

    Long-rumored and shrouded in mystery, this collaborative album between Elvis Costello and The Roots promises to be one of the most unexpected and
    revelatory releases of 2013. Born out of multiple performances by Costello on the Roots' day/night job at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, this album developed organically and is definitely a situation where the whole is greater than the sum of the amazing parts. It surprises with how good the two
    elements gel, but also sounds exactly how you'd think in your wildest dreams. As The Roots' ?uestlove notes, "it's a moody, brooding affair, cathartic rhythms and dissonant lullabies. I went stark and dark on the music. Elvis went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound shit"


    "Really does combine the strengths of its authors: Costello's voice, lyrics, and melody are driven by the Roots' powerful, swinging groove." - Stereogum


    "Sounds like vintage Costello, with a deep, dubby bassline- Los Angeles Times


    "A funky, icy groove, replete with a throwback organ sound and Costello singing like he did in his "Watching the Detectives era."- SPIN

    Still Rock and Roll to Him: Joel Toughens Up and Increases the Animosity, Sarcasm, Confidence, and Rock on 1980 Set


    Accessible and Angry: Phil Ramone's Stalwart Production Bristles With Boldness, Raucousness, and Directness on Definitive Mobile Fidelity Reissue


    Chart-Topper Certified Seven-Times Platinum: Includes "You May Be Right" "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," "Don't Ask Me Why"


    Elvis Costello long had a reputation for being the "angry young man." With apologies to the former Declan McManus, he had nothing on Billy Joel's Glass Houses. Fed up with inexcusable critical backlash and believing he'd still not been regarded as a serious artist, Joel ratcheted up the angst on the 1980 set that, oh, by the way, happened to sell another seven-million-plus copies and top the Billboard charts. Revenge is sweet.


    An integral part of Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, Glass Houses is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI. Honing in on producer Phil Ramone's radio-tailored albeit looser, straightforward production, this edition opens up the previously veiled soundstages, spotlights the clean yet raucous arrangements, and decongests the imaging so that every note comes to the fore. Thanks to the extra-wide grooves and meticulous remastering, Joel's urgency and temperament have never sounded so vibrant.


    In addition to firing shots at detractors, Joel further solidifies his reputation as a pop maestro on the hit "Don't Ask Me Why" and mellow classic "C'etait Toi (You Were the One)," each replete with sparkling structures and shimmering melodies. Throughout, he dials down the grand gestures, focusing more on an attitude and directness. At the time, Joel was conscious of the punk movement, and seems inspired to follow that genre's preference for simplicity, frankness, and irritability. The album's legendary artwork-the singer preparing to toss a brick through the windows of his house-is a metaphor for Joel shattering his image as a cocktail-lounge pop crooner.


    Such changes are evident in the now-signature "You May Be Right," a hard-rocking and scathing rebuttal to a romantic partner on which Joel embraces the identity of a tough-skinned madman that won't stop at anything. He inhabits the role with convincing theatrics, his voice mixing pushiness, smugness, self-evident humor, and cool that fits the resistive tone of the record's songs. Glass Houses is Joel's megaphone for stubborn independence, dogged assertiveness, and blustery confidence.


    It's also an announcement of artistic intent, a statement that's simultaneously catchy and barbed, well-crafted and rowdy. And it succeeds on all levels, bringing to commercial pop-rock a brashness and grit often absent from fare that sticks in your head for days. Joel would never be seen the same way again.

    Far As I Can See

    Matt Schofield is a modern blues guitarist in the truest sense of the word. He takes the forms and themes from his heroes and screws with them. His latest album, Far As I Can See, is a fiercely individual collection of tunes that ranges from odd-time shuffles, to Hendrixian explorations, and even some NOLA funk. In order to capture the best guitar tone he could for this album, Schofield enlisted his guitar tech and FOH sound engineer Simon Law and Schofield's tone throughout is muscular and clear with just enough gain to give each note a bounce. On Getaway, a funky jam in 7/8, the rhythm section does a masterful job of making an odd-time groove actually groove.


    The Maceo-meets-TOP feel that propels Hindsight pushes Schofield to play more jazz-inspired lines with a burning syncopation that drips with plenty of East Bay grease. The classic Neville Brothers track Yellow Moon gets an updated reading with a new arrangement (and some great rhythm guitar work) while the Texas rocker Tell Me Some Lies is straight out of the Vaughan family playbook. For fans of the more sophisticated blues/rock of players like Robben Ford and Scott Henderson, Schofield is worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the best of the genre.

    Let It Wander (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: August 17, 2018*


    LET IT WANDER signals a new beginning for the band as they move beyond their original musical mandate of evoking the spirit of the Dead and fully embrace their own personality. "More than anything, what you hear on this album is a band growing into its own sound," Casal says.


    The songs on LET IT WANDER are focused and filled with imaginative musical turns. Horne and Levy form a veritable groove machine that knows intuitively when to tighten up and when to stretch out. They expand and collapse the rhythmic pocket around Casal and MacDougall, who pass melodies back and forth in an elaborate game of musical tag as they take turns adding color and shade from a seemingly endless kaleidoscope of cosmic sounds.
