Jack Johnson & Friends: Best Of The Kukua FestivalJust in time for Earth Day, Brushfire Records will release Jack Johnson and Friends: Best of Kokua Festival. The album features a 13-track compilation of live performances from Jack Johnson's benefit concerts for the Kokua Hawaii Foundation. Proceeds from Jack Johnson and Friends: Best of Kokua Festival will benefit the Kokua Hawaii Foundation.
Culled from six years of his eco-minded music festival, Jack Johnson and Friends: Best of Kokua Festival, highlights onstage collaborations with legendary musicians like Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper, Dave Mathews, Ziggy and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley and more.
Johnson and his band team up with more than a dozen guest artists to perform both original works and spirited covers of classic songs. The album features several of Johnson's breezy folk-rock gems, including "Constellations" (with Eddie Vedder), "Mudfootball" (with Ozomatli & G. Love), "Breakdown" (with ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro), and "Better Together" (with Hawaiian singer Paula Fuga).
Elsewhere on Jack Johnson and Friends: Best of Kokua Festival, Johnson joins his guests for stripped-down renditions of their own songs: Taj Mahal offers his bluesy "Further On Down The Road," Jackson Browne revisits "Take It Easy" with the help of singer/guitarist John Cruz (who also shares his Hawaiian anthem "Island Style"), and the Marley brothers bring the reggae with Ziggy's "Cry, Cry, Cry" and Damian's dancehall banger "Welcome to Jamrock."
Rounding out the record are an eclectic collection of covers, including Bob Marley's "High Tide or Low Tide" (featuring Ben Harper), Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" (featuring Eddie Vedder) and Jimmy Buffet's "A Pirate Looks at Forty" (featuring Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds). Willie Nelson, meanwhile, delivers a Harper-assisted take on "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," the Fred Rose-penned classic he popularized.
Held on Earth Day weekend at Honolulu's Waikiki Shell since its inception in 2004, the Kokua Festival serves as both a community-centered celebration of music and environmental awareness and as the major fundraiser for the Kokua Hawaii Foundation (a nonprofit organization founded by Johnson and his wife Kim in 2003 to support environmental education in the schools and communities of Hawaii). Like the festival itself, Jack Johnson and Friends: Best of Kokua Festival spotlights artists who share the Kokua Hawaii Foundation's mission of protecting the planet and cultivating environmental consciousness.LP1

Gregg Allman's 1973 solo debut also became his biggest hit, a No. 13 LP featuring his Top 20 classic Midnight Rider. Analogue Productions now brings forth a sparkling reissue of this classic disc, mastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound. And presented as a 200-gram sonic superstar plated and pressed at our own Quality Record Pressings!
By the end of 1973, the Allman Brothers Band seemed to have it all nailed down, writes reviewer Rickey Wright. They'd proven their mettle with a fine synthesis of blues, jazz, folk, and country influences; expanded upon it with the definitive Fillmore East set; and moved forward after the separate losses of guitarist Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley. The group's myriad strengths, in fact, might've been the reason that one of their most obvious gifts - Gregg Allman's pained, growling voice - was sometimes overlooked.
Laid Back, Greg Allman's first solo disc, seems in part an effort to gain a little more recognition. It worked, particularly given the strong radio response to its opening track, a loping remake of Midnight Rider. Likewise, much of the album's remainder finds Allman tweaking the band's blues (Queen of Hearts) and country sides (a cover of Jackson Browne's These Days); horns and gospelish backing vocals add to the personal, often mournful feel. Laid Back is an often convincing version of the man's music.

Give Till It's GoneGive Till It's Gone is the 10th studio album from Ben Harper. Harper recorded most of Give Till It's Gone, his first solo full-length since 2006's Both Sides of the Gun, at the Los Angeles studio of Jackson Browne, who harmonizes with him on the wistful Pray That Our Love Sees The Dawn. On Rock 'n' Roll Is Free, the album's first single, Harper pays tribute to an audacious art form that continually challenges the status quo, demanding that we look at the world in a brand new way. The album also features two tracks co-written with Ringo Starr, the exuberant, psychedelic-tinged Spilling Faith and Get There From Here, an improvisational instrumental.
With Give Till It's Gone, Harper examines the disparity between the man he is today and the man he endeavors to become. Reaching deep within, he discovers there are no easy answers, but implores us to go the distance with him on this journey in the moving album opener, Don't Give Up On Me Now. While its songs are highly personal, Give Till It's Gone illuminates the universal struggle to find meaning and to fully engage with life and one another. We may pass through a dark night of the soul, but giving up is not a viable option, as Harper reminds us with certainty in the transcendent I Will Not Be Broken.1. Don't Give Up On Me Now

The Austin Sessions (Remastered)In the summer of 1997, Kris Kristofferson spent a few days in Texas recording stripped-down versions of his best-known songs. Released by Atlantic Records in 1999, The Austin Sessions pairs the acclaimed outlaw country songwriter with a band of studio aces and guest harmony vocalists for intimate versions of classics like Me and Bobby McGee, Why Me? and Sunday Morning Coming Down.
Rhino Records celebrates these powerful recordings with a remastered vinyl version of The Austin Sessions.
Kristofferson recorded The Austin Sessions at Arlyn Studios in Texas with a group of session veterans from Los Angeles and Nashville who were hand-picked by Mollin, who also plays acoustic guitar on the album. Kristofferson's longtime touring guitarist Stephen Bruton appears on several songs as well.
Mollin recalls: I knew in my heart that I could pull off a great under-produced production and give Kris the album he always wanted to make: one that felt like it had the uniqueness and rootsy feeling that Dylan accomplished on his early electric albums.
Several guests join Kristofferson on the album, including Jackson Browne (Me And Bobby McGee), Steve Earle (Sunday Morning Coming Down), Vince Gill (Help Me Make It Through The Night), Catie Curtis (Nobody Wins), and Mark Knopfler (Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends).1.

Step BackBlues legend Johnny Winter will release a new studio album, Step Back, via Megaforce Records. The album, the followup to 2011's Roots, will find Winter exploring a more aggressive vintage-blues style.
The album also will feature a host of special guests, including Eric Clapton, Ben Harper, Billy Gibbons, Joe Perry, Dr. John, Leslie West, Brian Setzer and Joe Bonnamassa.
"If there's good people, other good musicians, people enjoy it. I just love it, Winter says. [Step Back] is just to bring it to the people of today who haven't listened to the old music. It's better than anything they hear today.
Produced by Winter's guitarist, Paul Nelson, Step Back opens with "Unchain My Heart," which features Winter and his band joined by the Blues Brothers horns. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons is featured on "Where Can You Be."
"I never had the opportunity to jam with him [in the Sixties and Seventies]," Gibbons says. "I was content to remain in awe and admiration."
"If it weren't for Johnny Winter, I would have never picked up the guitar," adds Aerosmith's Joe Perry, who joins Winter on Lightnin' Hopkins' "Mojo Hand."
Other highlights include Winter's guitar and vocal trade-offs with Harper on Willie Dixon's "Can't Hold Out (Talk to Me Baby)," Winter and Clapton's rendition of Bobby Bland's "Don't Want No Woman" and Winter and Dr. John honoring Fats Domino with "Blue Monday."
"When you hear that sound come out of that Firebird guitar, you know it can be the one and only Johnny Winter," says Setzer, who is featured on Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's "Okie Dokie Stomp."

EaglesBalance is the key element of the Eagles' self-titled debut album, a collection that contains elements of rock & roll, folk, and country, overlaid by vocal harmonies alternately suggestive of doo wop, the Beach Boys, and the Everly Brothers. If the group kicks up its heels on rockers like Chug All Night, Nightingale, and Tryin', it is equally convincing on ballads like Most of Us Are Sad and Train Leaves Here This Morning. The album is also balanced among its members, who trade off on lead vocal chores and divide the songwriting such that Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner all get three writing or co-writing credits. (Fourth member Don Henley, with only one co-writing credit and two lead vocals, falls a little behind, while Jackson Browne, Gene Clark, and Jack Tempchin also figure in the writing credits.) The album's overall balance is worth keeping in mind because it produced three Top 40 hit singles (all of which turned up on the massively popular Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975) that do not reflect that balance. Take It Easy and Peaceful Easy Feeling are similar-sounding mid-tempo folk-rock tunes sung by Frey that express the same sort of laid-back philosophy, as indicated by the word easy in both titles, while Witchy Woman, a Henley vocal and co-composition, initiates the band's career-long examination of supernaturally evil females. These are the songs one remembers from Eagles, and they look forward to the eventual dominance of the band by Frey and Henley.

Dap-Dippin'Remastered From The Original Tapes
Includes Previously Unreleased Duet With Lee Fields
It's hard to believe that Sharon Jones' debut LP is a product of the year 2002, for several reasons. Given the excellent singles she recorded for Desco beginning in the late '90s, it seems like she would have gotten the opportunity for a full-length sooner; plus, her brand of raw, heavy, hard-driving funk is such a throwback to the '70s, and she pulls it off so well, that you wonder how she could have escaped that decade without at least a few rare, classic 45s (in the vein of labelmate Lee Fields). It's not hard to believe she once made her living as a prison guard, based on the tough-as-nails, no-nonsense performances she belts out on Dap Dippin' With Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, the first full-length release on Desco's descendant, Dap-Tone. Backed by the Dap-Tone house band (a conglomeration of studio pros with connections reaching back to the Desco orbit), Jones delivers a storming set of tunes that would have sounded perfectly at home on the James Brown's Original Funky Divas compilation. The style and quality are pretty consistent all the way through, but it's hard not to single out the nearly unrecognizable cover of Janet Jackson's What Have You Done for Me Lately, which is transformed into a churning blast of funk full of biting guitars (and nary a synth or drum machine in sight). Other highlights include the chunky leadoff track, Got a Thing on My Mind, the would-be dance-craze The Dap Dip, the slow-burning Make It Good to Me, and the trials-and-tribulations tale Ain't It Hard. Plus, label head Gabriel Roth throws in his usual authentic trappings -- the fake live introduction running down Jones' hits, the intentionally dated copy on the back cover -- that make the whole package even more fun. All in all, a terrific debut.1. Got A Thing On My Mind

Pyramid (Pure Pleasure)With such a tight group as the MJQ is is impossible to single out individual musicians which probably accounts for their long lived success.
This is a strong recording from the Modern Jazz Quartet, with inventive versions of John Lewis' Vendome. Ray Brown's Pyramid, Jim Hall's Romaine, and Lewis' famous Django, along with cooking jams on How High The Moon and It Don't Mean A Thing. The MJQ had become a jazz institution by this time, but they never lost their creative edge, and their performances (even on the remakes) are quite stimulating, enthusiastic, and fresh. - Scott Yanow/AMG

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.1. Vendome

Celebrate 3 Decades Of His Legendary Rock Masterpiece Featuring His Friends Joe Walsh, Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley, Glenn Frey And Jackson Browne
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Elektra Records Tapes
For an artist who first gained success as a songwriter with superstars like The Turtles, Linda Ronstadt, and
Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon's own acclaimed recordings proved to be a major force on the music scene for many
decades. His music transcended all genres of rock and pop music styles, fusing melodic landscapes with thought
provoking and somewhat controversial lyrical content during his successful reign on the album and radio charts.
After reaching platinum heights with his very popular Excitable Boy LP (Friday Music 9006), his amazing follow-up album Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School hit the rock charts again thanks to the remake of The Yardbirds classic
A Certain Girl as well as his smash collaboration with Bruce Springsteen on Jeannie Needs a Shooter.
The twelve track masterpiece is loaded with some even more time honored Warren Zevon classics like the rockers Play It All Night Long, Wild Age and Junglework, as well as melodic ballads like Empty-Handed Heart featuring his
superstar friend Linda Ronstadt on vocals, plus his collaboration with T-Bone Burnett on Bed of Coals.
The Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School sessions featured the musical talents of not only Warren Zevon but his
superstar friends like Jackson Browne, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Don Felder from The Eagles, David
Lindley, J.D. Souther and the aforementioned songstress Linda Ronstadt.
This Warren Zevon masterpiece has been out of print on vinyl now for over two decades, however, Friday Music
is now very honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl limited edition of Warren Zevon's classic
Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School.
Mastered impeccably from the original Elektra Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Warren Zevon/Boz Scaggs/Elvis

Inarticulate Speech Of The HeartInarticulate Speech of the Heart is the fourteenth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison - Originally released in 1983
Morrison said he arrived at the title from a Shavian saying: that idea of communicating with as little articulation as possible, at the same time being emotionally articulate.
One of music's true originals Van Morrison's unique and inspirational musical legacy is rooted in postwar Belfast. Born in 1945 Van heard his Shipyard worker father's collection of blues, country and gospel early in life.Feeding off musical greats such as Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Muddy Waters, Mahalia Jackson and Leadbelly he was a travelling musician at 13 and singing, playing guitar and sax, in several bands, before forming Them in 1964.Making their name at Belfast's Maritime Club Them soon established Van as a major force in the British R&B scene. Morrison's matchless vocal and songwriting talents produced instant classics such as the much covered 'Gloria' and 'Here Comes The Night'.Those talents found full astonishing range in Van's solo career.After working with Them's New York producer Bert Berns on beautiful Top 40 pop hit 'Brown Eyed Girl' (1967), Morrison moved to another realm.
With one of the most revered catalogues in music history and his unparalleled talents as composer, singer and performer Morrison's past achievements loom large. But, as throughout his extraordinary career, how that past informs his future achievements and still stirs excitement and keen anticipation.1. Higher Than The World

Warren Zevon (1st)Import
Warren Zevon is a Rock & Roll album recorded in 1975 and released in 1976 by the artist of the same name. The album features guest appearances of artists like Jackson Browne, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, Phil Everly, Don Henley and Glenn Frey, Bonnie Raitt and many more.
Warren Zevon was a ten-year music industry veteran who had written songs for The Turtles, backed up Phil Everly, done years of session work, and been befriended by Jackson Browne by the time he cut his self-titled album in 1976. Zevon sure didn't think (or write) like any of his pals in the Eagles or Fleetwood Mac; Zevon's music was full of blood, bile, and mean-spirited irony, and the glossy surfaces of Jackson Browne's production failed to disguise the bitter heart of the songs on Warren Zevon.
For all their darkness, Zevon's songs also possessed a steely intelligence, a winning wit, and an unusually sophisticated melodic sense, and he certainly made the most of the high-priced help who backed him on the album. This was the album that confirmed he was a major talent, and it remains a black-hearted Pop delight.1. Frank And Jesse James

Too Blessed To Be StressedToo Blessed To Be Stressed stakes out new territory for the popular roots-rock songwriter and performer. In the past, I've told stories that were mostly inspired by my own life, the former prizefighter and literal son of a preacher man offers. This time, I've written 10 songs that express more universal truths, and I've done it with a purpose: to make people feel good. I don't think I could have written anthemic songs like this if I hadn't made my last album, Thorn says of 2012's What the Hell is Goin On? Like 2010's autobiographical Pimps & Preachers, it was among its year's most played albums on Americana radio and contributed to Thorn's rapidly growing fan base. And Thorn followed that airplay success with his current AAA-radio hit version of Doctor My Eyes from April 2014's Looking Into You: A Tribute To Jackson Browne. It helps that those big vocal hooks on Too Blessed To Be Stressed are being reinforced by the sound of Thorn's flexible and dynamic band, as they have been doing for years in concert. During their two decades in the club, theater and festival trenches, the four-piece and their frontman have garnered a reputation for shows that ricochet from humor to poignancy to knock-out rock n roll. These guys really bring my songs to life, says Thorn. A lot of albums sound like they're made by a singer with bored studio musicians. My albums sound they're played by a real blood-and-guts band because that s what we are. And when we get up on stage, people hear and see that.1. Everything's Gonna Be Alright

Just Like YouImport
Available On Vinyl For The First Time
Featuring Bonnie Raitt & Jackson Browne
Just Like You is the third album by three-time American Grammy Award-winning blues musician Keb' Mo' (born Kevin Moore). Keb'Mo' has been described as a living link to the seminal Delta blues that travelled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America. His post-modern Blues style is influenced by many eras and genres, including Folk, Rock, Jazz and Pop.
Originally released in 1996, the album features guest artists Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt, both on the title track Just Like You. Unlike the first album, Just Like You features a more Blues-Pop to Blues Rock feel and more of its tracks feature a full band. The album was produced by John Porter (Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Taj Mahal, a.o.).
In 1997, Just Like You won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. This is the first ever vinyl issue of this classic album!1. That's Not Love

Don't Cry NowAfter her breakthrough on Capitol Records with The Stone Poneys (Different Drum) plus some acclaimed solo releases, Linda Ronstadt jumped to David Geffens bourgeoning Asylum roster, joining The Eagles and Jackson Browne to form the genesis of the California Country-Rock sound.
Dont Cry Now, her first for Asylum was released in 1973 and would help solidify Ronstadt as one of the premiere female pop vocalists for the next two decades. This is one of the most exceptional sounding female vocalist recordings of the 1970's.
Various tracks were produced by John Boylan, J. D. Souther; and, for the first time in what would be a long and highly successful relationship, British musician (Peter & Gordon) Peter Asher. The album spent more than a year on the Billboard chart and peaked at No. 45. Featured hit singles are the Eagles' Desperado, Bonnie Raitts Love Has No Pride, Randy Newmans sly observation on slavery and southern culture Sail Away plus a nod to both Dusty Springfield and the Grand Ole Opry with Silver Threads and Golden Needles.
Guest appearances include guitar work by both the Eagles Glenn Frey and super-sessionman Larry Carlton, plus harmonica by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands Jimmy Fadden, bass and drums by L.A.A-teamers Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel respectively, plus last but certainly not least, the legendary Sneeky Pete adding his tasteful pedal steel throughout.

TightropesTall Tales And The Silver Lining is a Los Angeles based band led by songwriter Trevor Beld Jimenez. Beld Jimenez grew up on the sounds of '70's AM radio, along with L.A. classics like Jackson Browne, Court and Spark-era Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Crazy Horse and the Byrds. His music incorporates all of that -- classic songwriting, great playing, simple, hook-heavy arrangements and thoughtful production -- but updates the sound for today. It's straightforward, heartfelt rock & roll, ten songs of love and loss, ocean-scented breezes and the hum of the open road beneath your wheels.1. Something To Believe In

We're All Gonna DieDawes' highly anticipated new album We're All Gonna Die will be released via the band's own HUB Records.
Of the album, Taylor Goldsmith (guitar, vocals) explains, "Pretty much every song on this record explores a difficult situation and tries to find a way to find the good in it, or at least remind yourself that it's not always that big of a deal. After all, as scary as it is, we are all gonna die."
The album was produced by Grammy nominated producer Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and includes backing vocals from Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe of Lucius, Mandy Moore and Will Oldham.
Dawes has toured extensively playing headline shows worldwide and major festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. Recently, they have toured with My Morning Jacket, Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, Conor Oberst, and Jackson Browne.
In the fall of 2014, Goldsmith contributed to Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, an album project which found collaborators Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) and producer T Bone Burnett writing and creating music for a treasure trove of recently discovered lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes.
Fellow collaborator Jim James proclaims about We're All Gonna Die, "The record sounds so fresh-yet fills me with a strange nostalgia for things that haven't happened yet...I hear it at the beach and blasting out of car windows on future summer nights...easily having become a natural part of people's lives."1.
