Rock And Roll JoeThe idea for Rock and Roll Joe began during Chip Taylor's Scandinavian tour of 2007. As Chip traveled through Norway and Sweden with his longtime friend and guitarist John Platania, new protege fiddler Kendel Carson, drummer Bryan Owings and bass player Ron Eoff, they talked about everything. But many of the conversations revolved around the musicians that they knew and respected and Chip realized that most music fans didn't really know the people who were behind many of the great records of the last 60 years.
With that in mind, Chip wrote the song, Rock and Roll Joe. That song prompted several more, with everyone in the band suggesting more songs in need of the spotlight. At the end of the tour back in London, the band quickly recorded the new songs and the Rock and Roll Joe album was born.
Chip Taylor and Train Wreck Records have also launched a website that will promote and honor the unsung heroes of rock music. The history of rock is filled with people such as Hank Garland and Mickey Baker who were instrumental in shaping the sound of today's best music. Yet their contributions are barely recognized. In addition to the underappreciated musicians and session players, there will also be some room to highlight the songwriters, producers and behind the scenes people who helped shape this music.No Listing Available.$17.99Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
Subtle SwingHank Garland's Subtle Swing LP, now sporting a sparkling new, period-era cover worthy of the album's greatness. A former country picker, Garland excelled when he decided to cut some jazz sides, accompanied here by vibraphone prodigy Gary Burton in a set that emphasizes Garland's knack for understated yet warm improvisational flourishes. We tracked down the vintage Sesac master tapes and are reissuing it on LP gems in lush 180-gram vinyl.1. What Am I To Do

Jazz Winds From A New Direction (Speakers Corner)
Hank Garland wasn't the first Country and Western guitarist to discover jazz as a new way of playing. Mundell Lowe (who knows him these days?) and Tal Farlow (whose Verve recordings have long become classics) are just two such musicians who are better known to jazz fans.
Garland's shining example Charlie Christian was his inspiration when he was invited to participate in a super session, and the LP Jazz Winds From A New Direction became a smash hit. With Joe Morello, the drummer responsible for the tricky, odd meter and Joe Benjamin, who had been instructed by Gerry Mulligan and performs harmonic magic even without a piano, and then Gary Burton, a newcomer (only 17 years old and completely unknown at the time!) on the vibraphone, these six numbers are a real phenomenon with regard to musicality, style and recording technique.
Unfortunately it was to remain a unique jazz session, for Hank Garland could never aspire to such heights again after his tragic car accident. That's why jazz fans should snap at the chance to grab this newly mastered LP: it enriched the musical horizon of the musicians during the recording, and is guaranteed to bewitch the listener of today.

About Speakers Corner
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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.
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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. All The Things You Are

Common GroundAvailable on audiophile 180 gram double vinyl for the first time courtesy of Mack Avenue Records.
On Common Ground, Gary Burton's debut release on Mack Avenue Records, the Grammy-winning pioneer of the four-mallet technique of playing the vibes is not only delivering his first studio album since 2005, but is also introducing his latest band. Well-known throughout his five-decade career for his quartets (beginning with his 1967 group featuring Larry Coryell, Roy Haynes and Steve Swallow), Burton is returning to the configuration for the first time since the mid-90s.
He expresses great enthusiasm for the new band's alchemy. "I've always liked the vibraphone-guitar sound," says Burton, whose masterful vibes glisten throughout Common Ground. "It's something that I discovered when Nashville country guitarist Hank Garland invited me in the '60s to record with him. The sound of the two instruments together has an ideal timbre and coolness."

The Glory RoadHer voice was all Saturday night, delivered on a Sunday
morning. Patsy on Jesus. Elvis without the pelvis. Fern
Jones' only album, released by Dot Records in 1959,
captured 36-year-old Sister Fern as she anointed
church music with the same untamed energy that
younger white Southerners were bringing to their rock
'n' roll. Produced by Mac Wiseman and showcasing crack
Nashville session players Hank "Sugarfoot" Garland,
Floyd Cramer, Joe Zinkan, and Buddy Harman fresh
off their June 1958 session with The Pelvis, Singing A
Happy Song should've taken Jones from dusty canvas
big tops to the Opry's storied stage. But with no 45 to
flog, Jones instead sold nary a record and never did hear
herself on the radio. Her fiery rockabilly gospel was a
few shades too radical for the conservative, traditional,
near puritanical public she played to anyway. Fern
Jones: The Glory Road collects her Singing A Happy
Song LP and cuts including "Didn't It Rain," from her
The Joneses Sing album, into one rousing package,
rich with the details and imagery of a brief career
spent tethered to the hard ground and gazing skyward.
The Glory Road'ssound gnaws at the bit and stands in
reverence, a runaway rockabilly tent show without a
