    Babes In The Wood (Pure Pleasure)

    Babes In The Wood is Mary Black's finest, most consistently pleasing album. There is no filler here, and her song selection, culled from new songwriters such as Noel Brazil and classic folkies such as Richard Thompson, is impeccable. The acoustic arrangements (including guitar, piano, mandolin, dobro, and accordion) are carried out by her longtime backing musicians, although the music has a decidedly more pop than Celtic flavor on this album. As with most of her releases, there are many romantic ballads sung with a subtly that adds emotional weight to every song. The main difference on this album is an omnipresent religious tone, whether it's overt in the gospel opener Still Believing or just below the surface in songs such as The Golden Mile. Even a few of the love songs refer to having faith that love will come around again after heartbreak (Just Around the Corner). However, the album is peppered with playful, upbeat tunes that propel the album forward to the final song, a wonderful cover of Joni Mitchells's Urge For Going. A great introduction to the music of Mary Black, and a must-own for fans.

    • Mary Black (vocal)

    • Pat Crowley (piano, accordion, vocal)

    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.

    The Woods

    "Sleater-Kinney is America's best rock band" - Greil Marcus, Time (2001)


    Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in
    Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band's core lineup consists of Corin
    Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and
    Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist,
    left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie
    rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest.


    The Woods is the seventh and final studio album from Sleater-Kinney,
    released on May 24, 2005 by Sub Pop. It was produced by Dave
    Fridmann and recorded from November 2004 to December 2004 at
    Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York.


    The Woods reached #80 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart and #2
    on the Independent Albums chart. The album appeared at number four
    in The Village Voice's "Pazz & Jop" critics' poll for 2005.


    "They bash Eighties nostalgia, tell a feminist fairy tale and even quiet
    down for a couple sensitive love songs - needed breaks from music so
    intense you wonder how they can contain its explosiveness." [100 Best
    Albums of the 2000's] - Rolling Stone


    "To survive these days, you have to be either suicidal or superficial.
    Sleater-Kinney, meanwhile, get by simply sounding fucking supersonic."
    [9.0/10] - Stephen Deusner, Pitchfork


    The album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release.
    This reissue coincides with Sub Pop's release of
    remastered versions of Sleater-Kinney's six other albums, as well as a
    limited-edition, deluxe vinyl box set featuring all seven albums.

    Where In Our Woods

    For the past 14 years, Elephant Micah's Joseph O'Connell has quietly self-released his music, sometimes collaborating with the psych-folk imprint Time-Lag Records or other very small labels. Despite the project's almost secretive status, Elephant Micah has repeatedly caught the attention of NPR, and has been championed by an impressive cohort of like-minded artists including Jason Molina, Hiss Golden Messenger, Dark Dark Dark, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.

    Maze of Woods

    Inventions are the collaborative sum of longtime friends Matthew Cooper of Eluvium, and Mark T. Smith of Explosions In The Sky. Their 2014 eponymous debut album introduced an ambition to create music that was both challenging and comforting. Their new album, Maze of Woods, opens with a vocal sample declaring, I wanted to do something that I don't know how to do. Using this as a mission statement, Inventions have crafted a complex and exuberant album from an array of instruments, samples, found sounds, beats, chants, and raw bursts of noise, with a much greater emphasis on strong vocal accompaniment in every song. Two albums released in the span of 10 months speaks to the drive that these two have felt since they started playing together. Much like on the first record, they again mixed the album in a house on the Oregon coastline, with final mixing and production all done by Smith and Cooper. Inventions have stated that much of the inspiration for Maze of Woods comes from the closing paragraph of Denis Johnson's novella Train Dreams. In that paragraph, Johnson describes the nonverbal howl of a feral wolf boy, a pre-language that is yearning and instinctual; a statement of wordless distress and love. Maze of Woods is the product of two masters of their craft getting lost in the wilderness, doing something that they don't know how to do, and emerging with something wholly unexpected and beguilingly beautiful.

    Woods 5: Grey Skies And Electric Light

    'Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light' is the ground-breaking record of 'bleak metal' from this revered Canadian act. The album received high praise upon its original release in February 2012 with Metal Hammer scoring 6/7 and about.com giving it a near perfect score of 4.5/5 stars. The themes of doom and death so heavily ingrained in the record were made even more profound after David Gold's death in December 2011 (just 4 months after the album was recorded.) The band's sound has been compared to the likes of Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Type O Negative, characterized by band leader David Gold's deep and mournful vocal style and bleak lyrical outlook. Due to fan demand, this is the first ever vinyl repress of this album.

    Lady Wood

    LADY WOOD is the long-awaited successor to Tove Lo's landmark debut album of 2014, QUEEN OF THE CLOUDS, and is set for release via Island Records.


    Similar to QUEEN OF THE CLOUDS, whose tracks were broken into three intimate chapters ('The Sex,' 'The Love,' 'The Pain') - LADY WOOD will be divided into two chapters: Fairy Dust and Fire Fade. Tove Lo describes them as "the emotional curves I go through when I'm chasing any kind of rush."


    Fairy Dust refers to anticipation, as in the seductive slow-jam "Influence" (featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa), and the prowling title track, "Lady Wood". Tove Lo compares that anticipation to "when the adrenaline starts to kick in. It gives you butterflies. It's that tingling sensation of sex." Fire Fade captures the moments when that thrill starts to wear off, as in the swelling, unguarded "Keep It Simple" and the cocksure "WTF Love Is". As she says, "You feel a little bit uneasy. And you really want to chase that first feeling again."

    Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood

    Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood is a title to set tongues wagging and minds wondering, but for an album that seems born of a return to John's youth it seems safely apt in its mischievousness.


    After nearly 50 years of making music it's still freshly evident that Cale draws from a make believe world first imagined by his young self. Track title 'Mothra' pays homage to the Japanese monster from Godzilla movies. As a boy practicing scales in grey skied Welsh valleys such fantastical flights of fancy must have been reassuring of the path that was potentially about to unfold for him. Lyrics reveal even more explicitly earlier incarnations of Cale and in the same song we relive an encounter with a local bully, You see me running, you see me climb, reading my books and always trying, laughing and teasing and I love to play, dreaming my dreams are never far away.


    Elsewhere Cale's doing what he does best, guiding listeners through the places, politics, and people of the day. A wide range of human experience is reflected and often it's for the listener to dig deeper to find what's being documented. Sometimes however part of the tapestry is pulled soberingly into focus; when listening to 'Scotland Yard' while the Leveson enquiry plays out, it's all too easy to recognize the guilty.


    As a producer Cale has reached a new plateau on this record. At the albums most maximal, it feels like looking at a collection of precious stones. Myriads of differently coloured and textured surfaces carefully placed together, each finding their own space to beckon the ear. It's a blend of chaos and beauty in equal measure and a testament to the exploratory spirit at work, which ensures that as always, there's something new to the ears here.

    Songs From The Wood

    Jethro Tull's tenth album was inspired by Ian Anderson's departure to a more rural environment in a transition which bore clear influence on the writing and recording process, with the band notably doffing a cap to British folklore and countryside.

    Songs From The Wood is often referred to as one of the most commercially appealing Jethro Tull albums, containing elements of rock, prog and folk-rock. Although media reaction at the time divided opinion, the album has certainly developed a nostalgic rapport with fans through the years and it is perceived today as one of the band's most popular albums. Drummer Barrie Barlow comments that it sounds Fresh, unique, great textures, interesting and dynamic!, while guitarist Martin Barre remembers that It was a very tight band, one of the strongest line-ups Tull ever had I think that Songs From The Wood and Heavy Horses [the follow up album] as a pair of albums are near the top of the tree.

    Full Range Termination with Banana (Silver) Plug*


    Custom Lengths Available Upon Request


    Twice the silver conductor content is what separates Wild Wood from Redwood. The increase of silver opens Wild Wood widely, increasing resolution, while at the same time continuing to remain relaxed and natural. The sense of ease and extension allows you to forget about your tasks at hand and drift off into musically-induced bliss.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+/PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER (PSC+/PSS) CONDUCTORS: Wild Wood uses a carefully finessed combination of Perfect-Surface Copper+ and extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver conductors in a Self-Shielding Counter-Spiral HyperLitz. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or an AC power cable. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. Extremely high-purity PSS further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.


    CARBON-BASED MULTI-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (INSULATION): The negative conductors in Wild Wood are insulated with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. Wild Wood uses Nitrogen-Injected Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.


    DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest's DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.


    DOUBLE COUNTER-SPIRAL GEOMETRY: Wild Wood and the other AQ "Tree Feature" cables have an inner circular array of positive conductors spiraling in one direction. Around this inner group are the negative conductors spiraling in the opposite direction. Even while the positive and negative conductors are crossing each other instead of being parallel, the relationship between the positive and negative groups is fixed and non-changing, adhering to one of AudioQuest's most basic design tenets: consistency. The result is an astonishing clarity, like focusing a camera lens you had no idea was so far out of focus.


    SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid round or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST uses a precise combination of different size conductors in order to significantly reduce the audibility of these character flaws. The different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Wild Wood allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.

    Sharing design and construction features with our Innovation series, the new Innovation Basic Wood turntable features a 38mm-thick, dynamically-balanced POM platter. The optimally designed tri-star chassis minimizes resonance in the audible range while delivering maximum stability. The Ceramic Magnetic Bearing (CMB) and Optical Speed Control (OSC) combine with Clearaudio's custom high-torque DC motor for excellent speed stability. The Innovation Basic features a second tonearm mount and is available in silver or black aluminum with Natural or Piano Black Lacquer panzerholz wood.


    The Innovation Basic Wood is based on the technology of the Clearaudio Innovation Wood turntable, but uses a single plinth, smaller plinth as opposed to the stainless steel sub-platter found on the Innovation Wood. Its resonance-optimized chassis shape is based on the proven success of Clearaudio's three-point design - a combination of Panzerholz, aluminum layers, and aluminum pods. The Innovation Basic Wood uses Clearaudio's patented CMB (Ceramic Magnetic Bearing) technology, where the platter magnetically levitates on an inverted bearing attached to a low-friction ceramic shaft. The high-torque DC motor is equipped with electronic OSC (Optical Speed Control). The high-density, dynamically balanced 38mm polyoxymethylene (POM) platter provides excellent dimensional stability. The Innovation Basic Wood is dual tonearm capable.

    Blues In Orbit

    Remastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Tapes


    Gatefold Old-school Tip-On On Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    It's tempting for Blues in Orbit to be overlooked when Duke Ellington's best albums are discussed, but truly it's an undisputed gem. There are 14 tracks, none of them is longer than 4:50 and it is all good stuff. There are some familiar favorites such as In a Mellotone and C Jam Blues as well as less often heard gems like Blues in Blueprint and Sweet and Pungent. It is also in stereo, and the arrangements are superb.


    The featured performers include Ellington stalwarts Johnnie Hodges, Ray Nance, Harry Carney and Jimmy Hamilton, as well as the less familiar Booty Wood and Matthew Gee. Johnnie, in particular is well showcased here, taking the lead not only in slow pieces like Brown Penny and Sentimental Lady, but also in the rousing, Smada.


    The full Analogue Productions reissue treatment is at work on this smashing LP - famed mastering engineer Bernie Grundman handled the remastering from the original analog tapes. The lacquers were plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Lastly we've stashed each super-silent 200-gram disc in a premium Stoughton Printing gatefold jacket.


    All of the takes were recorded during after midnight sessions recorded over two nights starting on December 2, 1959 in New York at Columbia Record's studio on East 30th Street. Each night Duke's late dinner arrived at 2 a.m. - a sizzling steak, a pot of coffee with lemons in it, portions of American cheese, and grapefruits. After dinner, and a breather for the band, the sessions finished around dawn in a swinging fashion.


    If you're just getting into jazz, this album is highly recommended as a great way to initiate your collection. The sound is incredible, with packaging to match. Another audiophile home run.

    Mastermind Jarno Salomaa comments: So what exactly do you find on 'Alone in the Mist'? Besides the first songs ever written for SHAPE OF DESPAIR - at that time still named RAVEN - these represent my first ever attempt at doom as well. Those tracks are the outcome of solitary inspiration through dark woods and good music. This demo was never fully released - do not bother to ask why, because I cannot remember the reasons at all. 'Alone in the Mist' was only tape traded without any cover or anything else with just a few people that we knew or were in contact with. Two of these songs came out officially a long way back, but soon you will get a chance to hear them all...

    1. Down Into The Stream
    2. To Adorn...
    3. Shadowed Dreams
    4. Woundheir
    5. ...In The Mist
    6. Outro

    The Academy In Peril

    "The Academy In Peril" by former Velvet Underground member John Cale was originally released in 1972. The album is an exploration of his influences and training in classical music and features mainly instrumental compositions including two tracks that feature the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Cale balances the rock-classical fusion on the record with touches of humor while the music is beautiful and subtle showing Cale's skills at composing and arranging. Contributors include Ron Wood on guitar, Del Newman on drums and Legs Larry Smith of The Bonzo Dog Band. Cover art and design by Andy Warhol. 180 gram vinyl reissue in a die-cut custom gatefold jacket.

    Held In Splendor


    As warm and relaxing as falling asleep in the sun." - Stereogum


    Judging from the early glimpse, Held In Splendor benets greatly from a more focused creative process. - SPIN


    Like a dusted-off artifact from a trippier time...borrowing from junkyard blues and '60s psychedelia while still sounding like its own thing. - The Fader


    Quilt's free-falling, unltered sound is the kind you'll have a hard time getting out of your head. - Interview Magazine


    When the three members of Quilt arrived in New York City in April to begin
    the intensive recording process for their second album, the new and aptly
    named Held In Splendor, they stepped directly into spring. Anna Fox
    Rochinski, Shane Butler and John Andrews had spent much of the previous
    several months clutched away at The Puritan Garage in Boston's
    Charlestown, shielding themselves from a winter of blizzards with the haven
    of their practice space and a set of fresh songs.


    Since the release of their 2011 self-titled debut on Mexican Summer, they'd
    become more than kids just out of college. They'd become a bona de
    hard-touring band, with stories to share from the road and experiences to
    distill into the narrative of new music. Though they continued to write and
    arrange tunes together, always an essential part of Quilt's creative process,
    they brought songs to one another, too, making and modifying demo tapes
    for the rst time. No longer rookies, Quilt began to approach their music like
    a lifeline. Coming to New York, then, just as the magnolia trees bloomed
    and the season of new life began to blossom, Quilt got to work.


    Indeed, when Butler talks about recording the kaleidoscopic Held In
    Splendor, he seems to speak of an ornate children's playground. Whereas
    their rst album was made mostly for free and mostly by friends over the
    course of a year of starts and stops, in sessions that captured the early and
    elemental and exciting efforts of a band nding its footing, Quilt entered the
    proper in-house studio located beneath the Mexican Summer ofces in
    Brooklyn for this one. They'd allocated a solid month for recording, and they
    clocked full days, every day, with Woods member and producer Jarvis
    Taveniere.


    The approach was wide-open: They tuned drums and recorded the same
    song with multiple microphone set-ups. They added bass and invited friends
    who added saxophone and violin, cello and steel guitar. They built this
    album together.


    Held In Splendor is an audacious pop-rock record with cascading harmonies
    and billowing textures, punchy rhythms and snarled guitars, wonderful depth
    and resplendent peaks. "Mary Mountain" takes hazy Summer of Love
    memories on a mid-summer road trip in a gleaming muscle car. "Tired &
    Buttered" invites Booker T over for an energy-addled jam in the garage.
    "The Hollow" twinkles like Fleetwood Mac and Galaxie 500, with sweet
    singing backed by the lap steel sighs of young acoustic guitar star and
    longtime Quilt pal Daniel Bachman. Held In Splendor is an album of
    personal poetry and public questions, confessions and aspirations-really,
    these 13 tracks are their own playground, brimming with the sort of
    unapologetic energy and wonder that turns simple songs into absolute
    anthems.

    1. Arctic Shark
    2. Saturday Bride
    3. Eye of the Pearl
    4. Mary Mountain
    5. Tie Up the Tides
    6. The Hollow
    7. A Mirror
    8. Just Dust
    9. The World Is Flat

    Dusty In Memphis

    Ranked 89/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Britain's greatest pop diva Dusty Springfield was the finest white soul singer of her era and this landmark Atlantic Records album from 1969 is a masterpiece, a perfect marriage of pop and soul...contains her top 10 hit Son Of A Preacher Man plus several other hit singles and classic tracks...


    Originally released in 1969, the concept for Dusty In Memphis was to take England's reigning female soul queen to the home of the music which had inspired her. Produced by Atlantic's Jerry Wexler and Arif Mardin and engineered by Tom Dowd, the record's highlights include Son Of A Preacher Man, So Much Love, Breakfast In Bed, Just One Smile, I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore and Just A Little Lovin'. Springfield is backed by a crack band that had previously worked with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, King Curtis and Elvis Presley among others. The musicians - collectively known as the Memphis Cats - include guitarist Reggie Young, bassist Tommy Cogbill, drummer Gene Chrismann, pianist Bobby Wood and Bobby Emmons on organ and electric piano. Songwriting contributions came from, among others, Randy Newman, Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. Dusty Springfield is one of the finest white soul singers of her era, and this is the undisputed proof.

    2. So Much Love
    3. Son Of A Preacher Man
    4. I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore

    From Elvis In Memphis

    Ranked 190/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray from the Original RCA Records Tapes/Manufactured at RTI


    Elvis' Groundbreaking Comeback Album!



    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early '50s, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known!


    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single "Heartbreak Hotel" forever etched 'The King Of Rock And Roll' trademark to his name. For the remainder of the 1950's into the mid-60's, Elvis Presley would release several dozen more hit albums and smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in a plethora of top charting films, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all time.


    As the turbulent '60s roared on, styles of music would change and rock and roll was becoming more infused with psychedelic and harder rock elements. Elvis wasn't a follower by any means, so he got back to his roots and began another chapter of his career which many have called The Elvis "Comeback" era. First witnessed on his impeccable Elvis television program on NBC-TV in 1968, a new and exciting rock superstar was truly back to reclaim his crown.


    Thanks to his chart topping smash recording of "In The Ghetto," this southern fried deep soul sounding Elvis Presley was just what the fans were screaming for and soon enough an entire album was built around this great new sound entitled From Elvis In Memphis. The 1969 album also was a blockbuster as it topped the upper rungs of the pop and country charts, making this one of his biggest albums of his career as well as one of his most revered. From Elvis In Memphis truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.


    Produced by Chips Moman, the From Elvis In Memphis album takes off with the two soul stirring rockers "Wearin' That Loved On Look" and the Jerry Butler Philly groove of "Only The Strong Survive." More Elvis favorites follow with the country ballad "Long Black Limousine" and the rockin' interpretation of Hank Snow's classic "I'm Movin' On." The album also features a nice helping of solid interpretations of Elvis' own favorites like Burt Bacharach's classic "Any Day Now," the timeless "Gentle On My Mind" by John Hartford, and of course the heartfelt Mac Davis composition "In The Ghetto." In total, the album showcases twelve important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone onto become definitive classics by any measure of popular music.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the limited edition 180g audiophile vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic From Elvis In Memphis by Elvis Presley. As a third installment in their exciting Elvis Presley 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, Friday presents this masterwork in all its high fidelity glory. Mastered impeccably from the original stereophonic RCA Victor Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray and manufactured at R.T.I., From Elvis In Memphis will be a much anticipated audiophile dream release for Elvis fans everywhere!


    For this exclusive presentation, Friday is also including for the first time ever gatefold artwork which includes the groundbreaking original LP cover elements as well as more rare visuals from this historic Elvis Presley era.

    Duke Ellington is joined by the likes of Clark Terry, Johnny Hodges and more for this recording from multiple sessions spreading from February 1958 to December 1959.


    ...(Blues In Orbit is) an album worth tracking down, if only to hear the band run through a lighter side of its sound -- indeed, it captures the essence of a late-night recording date that was as much a loose jam as a formal studio date, balancing the spontaneity of the former and the technical polish of the latter. - Bruce Eder, Allmusic.com
