    Wynonna & The Big Noise

    WYNONNA and her band The Big Noise, led by her husband, producer/drummer Cactus Moser, recorded the majority of the album in the sanctity of their home studio located on the family farm in Tennessee. WYNONNA has described the new album as "vintage yet modern" and a "return to the well." It's a rootsy work encompassing country, Americana, blues, soul and rock.


    The process of recording WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE with her band set her free artistically. "Like a garage band we all get in a room, basically knee to knee in a circle, and we jam until it feels amazing,"WYNONNA shares. "By the time we push record we are already jacked up because we have practiced and practiced until we know we are rocking. The end result is even better than when we started out because we're free to just play and enjoy ourselves." She adds: "I have stripped myself of all the expectations of worrying about fitting into any format and just picked songs I love. This album is my favorite thing I've done so far."


    Cactus elaborates about the recording of the album. "It creates more energy, more excitement and definitely a more unique sound to have our actual band play. When you have session players you just play differently. There's less emotional input, less freedom! These guys are with us 365 days a year and that was my goal to have an actual living breathing band make a record, not just people who come in for the week and then are gone. Much better feel, much better vibe. AMEN."

    Free Time

    Free Time formed in the summer of 2012 around Melbourne luminary songwriter Dion Nania (Panel of Judges). After moving to New York in 2011, Nania kicked around for a while, played some lead guitar with fellow Melbourne transplants Scott and Charlene's Wedding, then helped out the Twerps playing bass on a national tour. Shortly thereafter he began writing new songs with the intent of putting a new band together, eventually enlisting the support of Adrienne Humblet on bass, Jonah Maurer on guitar, and Michael Mimoun on drums.


    Filling out Nania's jangly, sometimes heartbreaking pop, the band quickly recorded most of their first LP the day before Dion flew home to mix it. He returned with fragments for new songs and the band finished the record in December 2012.


    Nania's songs tell stories of following love across the world, of being unsure about the future and of his place in it. Like the trans-pacific ping pong of the last 2 years of his life, his songs veer between sweet sadness and wild exuberance.

    Their musical vocabulary runs deep - it's not just Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, and The Grateful Dead that inform this record; the band feels at home, confident, and self-assured. With limited outside assistance, the trio has made a focused, powerful, and unified work. This is the new psychedelic rock.

    Down Home (Pure Pleasure)

    Bethlehem Records was a major jazz label in the 1950's formed by Gus Wildi with an impressive roster of artists including singers Nina Simone, Carmen MacRae, Chris Conner & Mel Torme, to name a few; arrangers: Marty Paich, Russ Garcia, Frank Hunter; and musicians including: Dexter Gordon, Roland Kirk, Charles Mingus, Frank Rosolino, Herbie Mann, Stan Levey, Art Blakey, Milt Hinton, Errol Garner, Zoot Sims, Duke Ellington, J.J. Johnson and many, many others. The label distinguished itself by giving artists creative control of their projects and presented albums of rather cutting edge graphic design. Its legacy is a lengthy discography that freshly and ambitiously captured and preserved an era of truly amazing music including West Coast Cool Jazz, East Coast Bop, and Vocalists. For many of the artists, their first or greatest recorded work happened at Bethlehem. By trusting its staff and artists to make their own creative decisions, to experiment, and thus to flourish, Bethlehem actively helped create and not just document a whole and diverse era of Jazz music.
    1960, when this album was recorded, was one of Zoot Sims' most productive years. The performances here are recognised as being the masterpieces of Sims' middle period.



    Musicians:



    • Zoot Sims (tenor saxophone)

    • Dave McKenna (piano)

    • George Tucker (bass)

    • Dannie Richmond (drums)



    Recording: June 1960 in New York City by Peter Ind

    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.

    Klipsch Stadium Home Music System


    Klipsch's strong partnership with Live Nation Entertainment, the world's foremost live entertainment company, has inspired a series of wireless music systems. The Klipsch Music Center Series is named after one of the five most ticketed live music venues in the world.


    Designed to match both the class and acoustic trademark of a high-end component audio system, the Klipsch Stadium™ home music system perfectly masters the performance levels given to it at any time. Its appearance is exceptionally solid and visually powerful, yet in a size that can be placed in many different home settings.


    Klipsch Stadium™

    The Klipsch Stadium speaker is an ultra-high-performance home music system with a striking look that is visually powerful, yet in a size suited for multiple home environments. It has the ability to reproducing spectacular, live-music dynamics at even "background" volume levels while having capacity to fill even a large space with live-concert level output with superb clarity. Klipsch Stadium is capable of matching the performance level of a "high-end" component audio system and is the "Modern HiFi" music system that precisely masters the performance levels you desire from it at any given time.


    The Latest Technology

    Tractrix® Horn technology used in the Klipsch Stadium speaker provides more sound being reproduced from every watt of power, with less distortion than other driver designs. Sound impact is astonishing. The Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) tweeters, taken from our esoteric Palladium speaker line, minimizes distortion with a true, piston-like driver excursion. Midrange drivers use Faraday Rings, also derived from our Palladium speakers, to allow for a consistent voice-coil magnetic field to reduce distortion. Tractrix port technology reduces port chuffing for the densest, most musical bass while the dual opposing subwoofers provide deep bass with no cabinet vibration. The high resolution, 400 watt digital amplifier uses advanced DSP technology for even sound at any volume level.


    Futureproof Connectivity and Convenience

    Wireless music streaming via your Wi-Fi network, with the option to steam to multiple Klipsch Stadiums in your home via AirPlay. Bluetooth® wireless technology audiophile aptX® and DLNA streaming, as well as a USB input for charging most portable music devices and wired iDevice music playback, and both an Optical Digital and Dual RCA analog inputs to connect other devices.

    Get Back Home In The USA (Pure Pleasure)

    Recorded when Hooker was well into his '60s 'comeback', Get Back Home features the bluesman in a solo performance (a mode that best reveals the subtleties of his work). The session was recorded in France, and Hooker must have been feeling a bit homesick, as the first song is Get Back Home In The USA, where he describes in detail, over his trademark boogie rhythm, his return to his homeland and the joy he knows he will feel. After this momentary ray of sunshine, though, things soon return to more familiar climes, with the bleakness of the slow blues T.B. Is Killing Me and the unbridled despair of When My First Wife Left Me. Hooker recorded this tune many times over the years, but this is one of the finest versions, plumbing the depths of shame and regret. Hooker's raw, biting guitar work is at its best here. Even the umpteenth recording of the Hooker chestnut Boogie Chillen is invested with uncommon verve. With the addition of six powerful bonus cuts, Get Back Home is both an excellent introduction into the sultry, menacing world of Hooker and a vital addition to the collections of his hardcore fans.



    Musicians:



    • John Lee Hooker (vocal, guitar)



    Format: 2LPs 33rpm



    Recording: November 1969 at Monestier-Lemay Studio, Pau, France

    All Hail West Texas

    Remastered


    The last of the all-home-recordings albums by the Mountain Goats and the only one about which that claim is true, All Hail West Texas was originally released as a free-standing compact disc on the late, lamented Emperor Jones. That was about a decade ago. The songs were originally transferred from the cassettes onto which they were recorded to 1/4 reels at Tiny Telephone by Alex Newport, who also played in Fudge Tunnel. John got really excited when he realized his tapes were being EQ'd by the guy from Fudge Tunnel.


    Remastered from those reels, along with 7 unearthed songs from the two surviving contemporaneous cassettes, All Hail West Texas stands as the peak of the Mountain Goats' home recording era, a time people like to refer to as when John Darnielle had his four-track, except John did not actually use a four-track. He used the condenser mic of a Panasonic boombox and there was no overdubbing. All songs recorded on the day they were written, usually within minutes of the actual composition. Highlights include Jenny, Fall of the Star High School Running Back, and The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton, a song which has compelled audiences around the globe to yell Hail Satan, and to mean it.


    Package art features a newly penned 1,800-word essay by John detailing his songwriting and recording process for the album.

    1000 Palms

    1000 Palms marks a return to Surfer Blood's DIY ethos. Abandoning the big time
    studio, the band decided to head back home to self-record and self-produce their
    third full-length album. Free of major-label-influence, Surfer Blood has delivered a
    uniquely compelling album, unlike anything in their catalog.


    The story of 1000 Palms began on January 1st 2014, after playing a New Year's show in
    Portland, OR. The band decided to stick around for the rest of the month, renting a
    practice space and sorting through a backlog of ideas. By February, as their lease ran
    out, Surfer Blood had recorded demos for most of the tracks that are now featured
    on their third LP.


    After a frustrating time at their previous home, Warner Brothers, the quartet was
    beyond ready to return to a more DIY recording process, completely void of the
    middlemen scrutinizing every bar of previous LP, Pythons. With the band
    self-recording, it was in the glamorous setting of an attic studio above a doctor's office
    where drums were committed to tape. Of the work, frontman John Paul Pitts states
    "fortunately none of us are strangers to DIY recording, so this seemed like the kind of
    challenge well-suited to our band".


    The making of 1000 Palms also owes a lot to the kindness of friends and family, with
    the remaining instrument sessions taking place at the home of drummer Tyler
    Schwartz's parents, while they were on vacation. Following a few days of very little
    sleep and after the band pooled resources and called in favors, the band had
    managed to craft everything you now hear on the upcoming record.

    Zaba

    Created in Epworth's own studio it is undoubtedly among this year's most striking debuts. The title, lifted from Dave's favorite childhood story, comes from
    William Steig's The Zabajaba Jungle. Steig's evocation of childhood adventure, exoticism and discovery is brilliantly fresh. ZABA is one complete beast
    and a journey you will get most from if you immerse yourself fully and listen from start to finish. The sound of the record, Dave says, is like a backdrop
    of man-made wilderness...


    Influenced by the exploratory, New World scenarios of Apocalypse Now, The Island of Dr Moreau, Heart of Darkness, The African Queen and Mosquito
    Coast, ZABA's songs tackle the humanization of nature and human interference with nature. Even now a lot of my favorite books are those books that I
    grew up with, he says. Things like Zabajaba, like Roald Dahl, like Wind in the Willows. I suppose all I've been doing is using those little creatures and
    animals to cover up what I really meant, to disguise who and what I was really talking about.


    Inspired by Kanye West and Charles Darwin, Nina Simone and the Velvet Underground, ZABA is a rich and textured work, a very special record indeed.
    With Dave producing and Epworth as A&R and mentor, the studio became their home and the band were free to record, improvise and write at their own
    speed, making their sound a bigger, brighter, heavier and more intense experience than ever before.


    The first single, Gooey is wobbly and child-like, a hymn to naivety. There's a confidence in the way children act, Dave says. I was trying to push that
    confidence into the beat. Walla-Walla goes back to Dave's love of Timbaland and Dr Dre, while Intruxx, initially the introduction to the entire record,
    summarizes this entire new world you're entering.

    Plastic Ono Band

    Remastered From The Original Tapes By Sean Lennon


    This long-overdue vinyl reissue of Yoko Ono's seminal, but massively under-appreciated Plastic Ono Band has all the makings of a classic rock nostalgia trip: Ono, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman and free-jazz legend Ornette Coleman. All the pieces are here to stir up a dangerous amount of nostalgia. But once the needle drops, the record achieves something exactly perpendicular to nostalgia.


    Released in 1971, the album not only influenced the approach of other musicians for decades, it also sounds absolutely modern 44 years out, eternally fresh despite the forward march of time. Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band not only predicted the intersection of the avant-garde and rock that would take place in the second half of that decade, the album would sound right at home at where that intersection is happening today.

    Second Helping (45 RPM)

    200-Gram 45 RPM Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio


    Sleeved In A Tip-On Jacket


    MoFi may have the rest of their catalogue, but Chad Kassem's coup is grabbing this album, the band's second, from 1974. Why? Because it kicks off with their anthem, the inimitable, riff-driven, majestic 'Sweet Home Alabama' - one of the greatest air-guitar/road trip songs ever. By this time, the band was a mite slicker but just as unapologetically Confederate-with-a-capital 'C' as on their debut. The opener does overshadow the rest, but the album serves up what the LP title promises in 'The Needle And The Spoon,' which sounds like 'Sweet Home Alabama II.' Musically, this nestles alongside Little Feat and The Allman Brothers Band - deservedly high praise. - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, April 2014


    Get ready for some Southern hospitality, courtesy of Analogue Productions, Quality Record Pressings and one of the hardest-rocking bands to ever grace a stage! With a catalog of over 60 albums and sales beyond 30 million, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.


    This Lynyrd Skynyrd 1974 album follows the success of Free Bird and Gimme Three Steps from their 1973 debut and features their biggest hit single, Sweet Home Alabama, an answer to Neil Young's Southern Man and Alabama. The song reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1974. Second Helping also featured Don't Ask Me No Questions, Workin' for MCA and Call Me The Breeze, the latter of which includes an acclaimed piano solo. Backed by a tight rhythm section and the mighty three-guitar attack of Allen Collins, Ed King and Gary Rossington, singer Ronnie Van Zant turns in a legendary performance on the urgent blues ballad I Need You, the cautionary The Needle And The Spoon and The Ballad Of Curtis Loew. 200-gram vinyl, mastering by Kevin Gray, lacquer plating by QRP's Gary Salstrom, heavy, tip-on gatefold jacket. None better.

    Red Colored Vinyl


    Includes CD


    Rivals is the new album of Dutch Indie Rock band Kensington. This band from Utrecht, Holland scored hits with Home Again and Ghosts, performed on the biggest festivals, sold out tours and shows all over the world. They received an MTV Award and multiple radio Awards in the Netherlands.


    All these positive experiences were taken into the studio, which resulted in the next step up for these rockers. Rivals is a search for the enemy inside every human being, and represents two faces of the band: one of light Pop songs and one of dark, epic Rock songs.


    Kensington's first single Streets is already becoming a hit and the anthem of this year's festival season. The song All For Nothing is the title track of the upcoming Dutch thriller movie Bloedlink, which opens the Dutch Film Festival in September 2014, and is already a hit on popular Dutch Radio.


    The first vinyl pressing will be released on red wax. This brand new Kensington album also includes a free CD copy!

    Hypnotized

    Dream Police is an American musical production by Nick Chiericozzi and Mark
    Perro. The project began in 2010 as a reservoir for ideas which had overflowed
    from The Men's drainpipe. In that same year, a two-song cassette single was self-released, with a follow-up live document in 2011.


    In the summer of 2013, The Men had just come home from five straight months
    of touring. For Perro and Chiericozzi, the desire to create was still strong, so they
    did what they used to do when they first started the band - they started jamming.


    Although the production began using the most conservative rock n' roll devices,
    Chiericozzi suggested adding drum machine to the song "Pouring Rain," and everything changed. Over the next six months, the two Men and their collaborator
    Kyle Keays-Hagerman spent countless hours reshaping every song, constructing
    them from nothing. They obsessed over every tone, every part. They'd spend an
    entire day on one snare crack.


    The album slowly plumed into a cloud of future primitive psychedelia bursting with glimmering electronics and cinematic, vibrato storytelling. The result
    of that process is Hypnotized: something borne from The Men, but free of it. It
    was mixed the weekend after Tomorrow's Hits was released, and then Perro and
    Chiericozzi were off again.

    Chord Company C-line RCA Cable

    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    An original Chord Company design, built specially for us. We wanted a high performance cable at an affordable price that still adheres to our exacting standards. What Hi-Fi? Award-winner 2015, 2016 and 2017, so it looks like we succeeded!


    The ARAY conductor geometry was developed from the Tuned ARAY conductor configuration first used on our then flagship Chord Sarum cable range. The over-moulded RCA plug uses the same signal enhancing direct gold-plating process that we use on our Chord VEE3 RCA plugs.


    The most important reason for developing this cable comes down to just how affordable good quality digital players and turntables have got. We needed a cable to match that performance. Producing genuinely high-performance cables that carry a musical signal with a real sense of coherence is a big challenge and we are justifiably proud of our award winning C-line interconnects.


    ARAY conductor geometry, multi-strand oxygen free copper signal and return conductors. High density overwrapped foil shielding, reduces signal loss caused by high frequency interference. Unique RCA plug gold-plating process improves signal transfer across audio frequencies. Over moulded plug surround provides high reliability connection.


    The Chord C-line is designed to work with all line level components, CD players, streaming devices, DVD players, home theatre amplifiers, tuners, phono stages and pre to power amplifier connections. This cable can also be used with RCA equipped turntables.


    Available in 0.5m and 1m lengths.

    Negotiations

    Negotiations, the fifth full-length album written, recorded, and produced by The Helio Sequence, would sound different had it not been for a flood. In 2009, while touring in support of Keep Your Eyes Ahead, singer-guitarist Brandon Summers got an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night. Back home in Portland, OR, the band's studio/practice space was under nearly a foot of water. Heavy rains had caused the building's plumbing to overflow like a geyser. But Summers and drummer-keyboardist, Benjamin Weikel, were lucky: All of their best equipment was either on tour with them, or racked high enough off the studio floor to be spared.



    Still, the band needed a new home. After three months of searching, Summers and Weikel settled into a 1500-square-foot, former breakroom-cafeteria in an old warehouse. They no longer had to work their recording schedule around loud rehearsals by neighboring bands, but were free to create late into the night in uninterrupted seclusion. With twice the square footage, the space also had room for more gear, a lot more gear. They decided to use this opportunity to try something different.



    Summers and Weikel, who started playing together in 1996 and self-produced their first EP in 1999, have always been gearheads. But it wasn't until the success of Keep Your Eyes Ahead that they could afford to step things up: The duo spent months (and many hard-earned dollars) retooling their studio. They left behind much of the cleaner-sounding modern digital studio equipment and instruments they'd always relied on, and embraced vintage gear that would color their recordings with a warmer, deeper sound: Tape and analog delays, spring and plate reverbs, tube preamps, ribbon microphones, and analog synths.



    As the new studio came together, so did the songwriting. It proved to be the most spontaneous, open, and varied writing process they had ever experienced. Weikel, who was listening to minimalist/ambient composers like Roedelius and Manuel Goettsching, had created dozens of abstract synth loops of chord progressions and arpeggios. The two would put a loop on and improvise together with Summers on guitar and Weikel on drums, recording one take of each jam. Other songs like "One More Time", "October" and "The Measure" quickly formed from rough one-minute sketches by Summers, while the down tempo "Harvester of Souls" was completely improvised musically and lyrically in a single take.



    Tempering the free form approach to writing was Summers and Weikel's meticulous attention to production and arrangement. Taking cues from the spaciousness, subtlety, and detail of Brian Eno and late-era Talk Talk records, they moved forward. Listening to the recorded live jam sessions, they set to work transforming the ditties into actual songs. "Open Letter," "Silence on Silence", "Downward Spiral" and the title track - some of the spacier, mesmerizing songs on Negotiations - came together in this way. Summers' one-minute demos were brought to life in collaboration by Weikel spending weeks working on sound treatments and synth landscapes to enhance the songs.



    Lyrically, Summers affirmed the improvised ethos, working deep into the night ad-libbing alone in front of the mic, abandoning pre-written lyrics and instead preferring to create in the moment. His delivery was largely inspired by the starkness and understated romanticism of Sinatra's Capitol era "Suicide Albums", imparting a more introspective and personal tone. "I used to view a lyric as a statement," he says, "Now, I see it more as a letter you're writing to yourself or a conversation with your subconscious."



    This collection of shimmering, reverb-heavy songs is a meditation on those inner dialogues (hence, Negotiations) with solitude, memory, misgivings, loss, atonement, acceptance and hope. Most of all, it's a record that serves as a testament to the beauty, blessing, and excitement of a fresh start.

    Second Helping

    200-gram vinyl pressing by Quality Record Pressings!


    Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio


    Sleeved in a tip-on jacket


    Driven by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals) and Rickey Medlocke (guitar), along with longtime drummer Michael Cartellone, Lynyrd Skynyrd's legacy goes back some 35 years ago to Jacksonville, Fla., and was halted for a decade by the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson and Huey Thomasson, yet they rock on. With the recent passing of founding member/keyboardist Billy Powell and longtime bassist Ean Evans, a lot of people probably expected us to say enough is enough, admits Medlocke. But that would not be the way of this Rock & Roll Hall of Fame powerhouse. With a catalog of over 60 albums and sales beyond 30 million, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.


    This Lynyrd Skynyrd 1974 album follows the success of Free Bird and Gimme Three Steps from their 1973 debut and features their biggest hit single, Sweet Home Alabama, an answer to Neil Young's Southern Man and Alabama. The song reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1974. Second Helping also featured Don't Ask Me No Questions, Workin' for MCA and Call Me The Breeze, the latter of which includes an acclaimed piano solo. Backed by a tight rhythm section and the mighty three-guitar attack of Allen Collins, Ed King and Gary Rossington, singer Ronnie Van Zant turns in a legendary performance on the urgent blues ballad I Need You, the cautionary The Needle And The Spoon and The Ballad Of Curtis Loew.

    Includes Download Card with WAV Files


    The album was self-recorded and self-produced in their home studio in Tyler, TX - the band's first time recording completely independently, which proved to be a rejuvinating and rewarding process.


    The new album sees Eisley's signature tapestry of rich harmonies, delicately woven over the band's most intricate instrumentations yet. The relaxed, creative setting also allowed for the band's most collaborative effort to date, seeing more prominent bass and guitar lines than ever before, a song written and sung by lead guitarist Chauntelle DuPree-D'Agostino (her first ever full-song solo lead vocal performance), and guest performances from Merriment and Say Anything's Max Bemis.


    "Currents is honestly the first time we've had total and complete free reign over the making of one of our records and it felt so liberating. We were able to dig deeper musically; There are lusher arrangements and more abstract themes. I feel like we really were able to experiment this time in the studio while still enjoying doing what we love which is essentially writing pop songs," explains vocalist/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis.


    "I think our fans have always appreciated that Eisley doesn't sound exactly like every other band and I think we've succeeded in taking that element a bit further on this record. We're more confident as a band than we have ever been. I think the people that have always loved the darker, whimsical side of our sound will be very pleased with the songs on this record while the people who have enjoyed what's melodic, simple and sweet about Eisley will be quite pleased as well. The title Currents, to me, is relevant to how we feel as a band at this point in our career. The current is constantly moving and flowing no matter what and that's what we've always done together and plan to keep doing."

    Afrodisiac

    The best known song on 1973's Afrodisiac is "Jeun Ko Ku," a satire about gluttony and Fela's first major hit in West Africa. In Broken English, the title means "chop and quench," which, in turn, means "eat and die" in Standard English. Lyrically, the standout track is the closing "Je'Nwi Temi" ("don't gag me"), a critique of the Nigerian political/military establishment and a defence of free speech. Fela vows that he will always tell it like it is, no matter what. This proved to be prophetic stuff, given the police and army assaults, intended to silence him, which were just around the corner. "Alu Jon Jonki Jon" draws on the interaction between animals and humans that is part of Yoruba mythology, in a tale about a dog who betrays his friends. Like many of Fela's lyrics of the period, the lyric employs parable and metaphor to encourage ethical conduct in everyday life. In "Eko Ile," Fela sings that there is no place like home (Eko was the pre-colonial name of Lagos). Afrodisiac was recorded at EMI's Abbey Road studios in London. According to the original sleeve credits, the album was produced by Jeff Jarratt. Fela only infrequently employed outside producers on his albums. Sometimes the results were excellent: British dub master Dennis Bovell's Live In Amsterdam (1983); Ginger Baker's psychedelia-tinged He Miss Road (1975); and Wally Badarou's Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense (1986). On another occasion it was spectacularly bad: Bill Laswell's remix and overdubbing of Army Arrangement (1985), made while Fela was in jail in 1984 on currency smuggling charges. Friends smuggled a cassette of Laswell's version into Fela. Listening to it, he said later, was "worse than being in prison.' On Afrodisiac, Jeff Jarratt was clearly working under Fela's close direction. The sound is classic Africa 70: punchy, raw, "live in the studio."

    Mozart - Symphony #36 - Piano CTO 15 (Speakers Corner)

    Let us recall that great American and citizen of the world who trod every musical pathway and who held his audience riveted with unbounding energy and charisma. Whether as a composer of operas or musicals, performer, conductor or mentor, "Lenny" felt at home everywhere. And all who were privileged enough to get to know him can confirm this, whether they experienced him as a circumspect teacher who taught interested amateurs about church music, or even as a pianist bawling out hit songs in a bar.



    Quality was guaranteed with records sporting the words "Bernstein conducts ...", and no music lover ever missed adding such gems to his collection. But most recordings of Bernstein as a master of the keyboard lie buried in the archives.



    Where some musicians fail due to a lack of perspicacity or false self-judgement, Bernstein appears to take himself beyond his normal bounds in his double function as solo pianist and conductor. His interpretation of Mozart is richly nuanced but free of all romantic trimmings; his Mozart is what we have learned to value over the past few years of the present century. This recording is absolutely first class, both musically and technically, and is thus a true collector's object.



    Musicians:



    • Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

    • Leonard Bernstein (conductor)




    Recording: March 1966 at Sofiensaal, Vienna by Gordon Parry

    Production: Erik Smith





    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.
