    The Trio

    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Oscar Peterson was a Canadian jazz pianist and composer. He was called the Maharaja of the keyboard by Duke Ellington, but simply O.P. by his friends. He released over 200 recordings, won eight Grammy Awards, and received numerous other awards and honors. He is considered one of the greatest jazz pianists and played thousands of concerts worldwide in a career lasting more than 60 years.


    Peterson made numerous duo performances and recordings with bassists Ray Brown, Sam Jones, and Irving Ashby, Herb Ellis, and Barney Kessel, pianists Count Basie, Herbie Hancock, Benny Green, and Oliver Jones, trumpeters Clark Terry and Louis Armstrong, and many other important jazz players.


    Peterson redefined the jazz trio by bringing the musicianship of all three members to the highest level. Together with Joe Pass (guitar) and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen (bass), Oscar Peterson (piano) called the trio in his own words, 'the most stimulating' and productive setting for public performances as well as in studio recordings.


    The Trio is a 1973 live recording at the London House in Chicago. Winner of the 1975 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Performance By A Group, this energetic live set is the highlight of all three storied careers.


    In his Allmusic review, critic Scott Yanow complimented the playing of Pass and Pedersen but wrote the reason to acquire this set is for the remarkable Oscar Peterson. The pianist brilliantly investigates several jazz styles... Peterson really flourished during his years with Norman Granz's Pablo label, and this was one of his finest recordings of the period.

    Konitz Meets Mulligan (Pure Pleasure)

    O.K., so it's mono. And, for much of the recording, Mulligan's quartet seems simply to be backing Konitz. But hang on, this is a marvelous little gem. Mulligan on the bariton, Konitz on alto, and - yes - Chet Baker on trumpet. How can you pass this up?



    But this is more than an artifact. This is jazz at its spontaneous and inventive best. Konitz, freed from Stan Kenton, has all sorts of new ideas about these old standards. And, for many of the cuts, as Lee explores the possibilities, you can hear Mulligan purring far in the background (mono, remember), and, every once in a while, moving to the foreground to make a few statements of his own. These two jazz minds talk to each other, tease each other,support and - in a gentle way - challenge each other.



    And, of course, in a few cuts, Baker's sweet trumpet announces itself and joins the two sax players in their explorations. The now-unheralded but extremely deft Carson Smith takes on most of the bass responsibilities, and provides - along with Larry Bunker on drums - a solid stage for Baker, Mulligan, and Konitz to swing on.



    Mulligan, Konitz, and Baker, of course, went their separate ways, Konitz and Mulligan to long and brilliant careers, Baker to a briefer, tragic, but still shining career. This, then, was a moment in time, and is now your chance to catch these giants sharing a stage, playing for and with one another, showing admiration and affection for each other's talents and ideas.
    Mono - so what? This is a treasure from the vaults of Pacific Jazz.



    Musicians:



    • Lee Konitz (alto saxophone)

    • Gerry Mulligan (bassoon)

    • Chet Baker (trumpet)

    • Carson Smith (bass)

    • Joe Mandragon (bass)

    • Larry Bunker (drums)

    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 Great American Songbook (Pure Pleasure)

    This is a gem of an album and one of my favorites by McRae. It was recorded live for Atlantic Records at Donte's Club in Los Angeles on November 6, 1971, and released the following year.


    What I love is not only the choice of songs but the sound quality and the performance itself. The set not only contains established standards by Ellington, Cole Porter and the other greats, but some new (at the time) material. Including Burt Bacharach's They Long To Be Close To You in the set was a wise decision in my opinion. It deserves to be a standard. Of course, there is the obligatory Billie Holiday song that McRae would include in all of her performances. On this album it's I Cried For You, which was one of Billie's first recordings in 1936.


    The sound quality is superb. The engineer managed to capture not only the energy from the live performance, but the richness of the ensemble backing McRae. Indeed, the musicians backing her are perfect for the material: Jimmy Rowles on piano (who wrote the Ballad of Thelonious Monk), Joe Pass on guitar, Chuck Domanico on bass and Chuck Flores on drums.


    If you love hearing some of the best songs from the Great American Songbook performed by a master this album will delight you. There is a cohesiveness to the album that earns kudos from the production team as well as the performers. Interestingly McRae and her ensemble performed 32 songs the night that this was recorded. One can only speculate as to why a volume 2 wasn't released. Regardless, this is - in my opinion - some of McRae's best live material. - Mike Tarrani


    Musicians:



    • Carmen McRae (vocal, piano)

    • Joe Pass (guitar)

    • Jimmy Rowles (piano)

    Windfall

    If the opening notes on Joe Pug's new LP "Windfall" are a bit disorienting, his fans won't likely be surprised. The Austin, TX singer songwriter has made a habit of defying expectations so the piano-driven "Bright Beginnings" and the atmospheric rumination of "Great Hosannas" are just further indication that he's quite comfortable stepping outside of the guy-with-a-guitar trappings of the genre.


    His rise has been as improbable as it has been impressive. After dropping out of college and taking on work as a carpenter in Chicago, he got his musical start by providing CDs for his fans to pass along to their friends. This led to a string of sold out shows and a record deal with Nashville indie Lightning Rod Records (Jason Isbell, Billy Joe Shaver). As he toured behind "Messenger" (2010) and The Great Despiser (2012) it was with a band that looked as much like a jazz trio as an Americana band. "I never quite found a live band that captured what I was aiming for until I connected with Greg [Tuohey--electric guitar] and Matt [Schuessler--upright bass]. It was an arrangement that maybe didn't make a ton of sense on paper but 10 minutes into the first rehearsal I knew this was going to be my band." The following years would have them on the road for over four hundred shows, including stops at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and The Newport Folk Festival.

    Newport Jazz Festival: Live At Carnegie Hall (Pure Pleasure)

    This is a wonderful live album. Recorded toward the end of Ella's career, by concert's end it is apparent that she has about lost her voice, but not the audience's adoration. The album showcases her in various settings: with the (obviously) reconstituted Chick Webb Orchestra, with Ellis Larkins, with Joe Pass and with Tommy Flanagan (of course); the album also has some nods to the Webb Orchestra, noteworthy for late-career blowing by 'Lockjaw' Davis. Highlights: Nice Work If You Can Get It, Good Morning Heartache (an intended and most worthy tribute to Lady Day), Miss Otis Regrets, the first encore of Some of these Days, and intended set-ender of Ella doing what she does best, scatting through Lemon Drop.

    Echoes of Indiana Avenue

    With a lot of sleuthing and a team of experts on the case, long lost tapes of Wes Montgomery have been discovered and restored. Resonance Records will release Echoes of Indiana Avenue, the first full album of previously unheard Montgomery music in over 25 years on March 6, 2012, which would have been Montgomery's 88th birthday. Over a year and a half in the making, the release will provide a rare, revealing glimpse of a bona fide guitar legend. The tapes are the earliest known recordings of Montgomery as a leader, pre-dating his auspicious 1959 debut on Riverside Records. The album showcases Montgomery in performance from 1957-1958 at nightclubs in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, as well as rare studio recordings. The release is also beautifully packaged, containing previously unseen photographs and insightful essays by noted music writers and musicians alike, including guitarist Pat Martino and Montgomery's brothers Buddy and Monk.


    On this scintillating discovery, Montgomery plays it strictly straight ahead, swinging with a momentum and ferocity that is positively visceral, a clear display of Montgomery's bebop side. Listening to these recordings only reaffirms how Montgomery exerted such a profound influence over generations of guitarists from George Benson, Pat Martino and Joe Pass to John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Kevin Eubanks, and Russell Malone to Kurt Rosenwinkel.


    Joined by such Naptown colleagues as drummer Paul Parker and keyboardist Melvin Rhyne (who would later appear on Montgomery's first Riverside release), pianist Earl Van Riper, bassist Mingo Jones and drummer Sonny Johnson, as well as brothers Monk on acoustic bass and Buddy on piano (the brothers featured on one track), Montgomery swings with blistering abandon on a program of burners and ballads. Included here are renditions of Shorty Rogers' Diablo's Dance, Erroll Garner's Misty and Billy Strayhorn's Take The A Train as well as jazz standards Darn That Dream and Body and Soul. Montgomery also reveals some bluesy roots with an earthy improvised After Hours Blues, which has him playing with Guitar Slim-like nastiness. Elsewhere on Echoes of Indiana Avenue there's a stirring duet between Wes and organist Rhyne on a moody rendition of Thelonious Monk's 'Round Midnight and a faithful rendition of Horace Silver's Latin-tinged Nica's Dream. Montgomery and his brothers also tackle Thelonious Monk's Straight, No Chaser with bop-ish authority.


    Echoes of Indiana Avenue consists of three different sessions, one studio and two live. Four of the tracks were recorded at The Hub Bub, a long-forgotten jazz club in Indianapolis. The title of the collection refers to a longstanding popular commercial strip in Indianapolis, with historical roots. As Dr. Baker remarks, In Indianapolis during the 1940s and 1950s twenty or more clubs and other performance venues were operating at any given time. Generally speaking, the important clubs lay on or near main thoroughfares in predominantly black areas. The busiest and most notable area was known as 'The Avenue,' which was the portion of Indiana Avenue.


    How these long lost tapes from the early stage of Montgomery's solo career finally emerged after being on the shelf for more than 50 years is a tale of intrigue that will enthrall collectors and aficionados. Although the identity of the person who made the original recordings remains unknown, the tapes may have passed through several hands before they were eventually acquired in 1990 by a guitarist and Montgomery fan Jim Greeninger. Due to their fragile condition, he immediately made digital transfers of the original tapes and set out to make a deal with a record company. It wasn't until 2008 that Greeninger, who had tried selling the tapes on eBay, contacted Michael Cuscuna, the respected veteran producer who has had a long track record with Blue Note Records and is also the co-founder of Mosaic Records.


    In the summer of 2010, Cuscuna contacted Zev Feldman of Resonance Records, who served as a producer on the project. We had no idea when we got the tapes what they were exactly, Feldman recalls. All we knew was that Wes was on them. So between 2010 and 2011, I made three trips to Indianapolis where I interviewed and discussed the recordings with scholars, musicians and friends of Wes. It was a big mystery and we had to act like gumshoes in piecing it all together. It was actually in part because of label founder and president George Klabin's support that we were able to make this project possible.


    Resonance has created a hand-numbered, hand-assembled LP edition pressed by audiophile embraced Record Technology, Inc. (RTI) and with a deluxe gatefold LP jacket by Stoughton Press. The two 12 LP's were mastered by the legendary Bernie Grundman at 180g 45 RPM for the best sound.

    Bobby Darin was a gifted one indeed. His legendary musical career broke wide open in the mid-fifties, followed with a plethora of hit recordings in the pop, rock, country and jazz vein. He utilized his short time on earth to share his talents with millions of fans with his records, songwriting, concerts, movies and television shows.

    Coleman Hawkins And Confreres

    Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound


    Ben Webster had long before passed through the ranks of imitator, then pupil and finally master. His college attendance, as one might put it, in the Duke Ellington Orchestra gave him a sureness of expression in his great showpieces and he also learned to hold his own against such musical giants as Paul Gonsalves and Jimmy Hamilton. Hawk was able to thoroughly enjoy his fame in numerous Jazz At The Philharmonic concerts given all over the world, where, of course, he had to assert himself against many other saxophone players. Two such JATP ensembles are to be found on the Confrères LP. The relaxed atmosphere is particularly noticeable in the title Sunday in which Roy Eldridge comes into the limelight with a brilliant solo. And just listen to George Buvivier's marvelous bass playing (in Nabab!) where he certainly has no reason to hide in the shadow thrown by Ray Brown. Coleman Hawkins' voluminous, supple sound which had a great influence on the styles of musicians ranging from Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins up to Joe Lovano, is best heard after Roy's solo in Honey Flower.


    Originally released in 1958.


    Musicians:


    Coleman Hawkins, tenor saxophone

    Ray Brown, bass

    George Duvivier, bass

    Roy Eldridge, trumpet

    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl & Gatefold Presentation


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (The Moody Blues)


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Threshold Records Tapes


    In 1986, The Moody Blues' "The Other Side of Life" album and their top charting hit single "Your Wildest Dreams," truly made this one of the most important chapters in their stellar career. Not only did millions of fans support this incredible masterwork, but it also received accolades from the young fans of MTV, which garnered the legends a Billboard Video of the Year award for the smash hit song. "The Other Side Of Life" Lp features nine stunning performances from the talents of Justin Hayward (guitar/vocals), John Lodge (bass/vocals), Patrick Moraz (keyboards & formerly of Yes), Ray Thomas (flutes/vocals) and Graeme Edges (drums/vocals).


    The top ten album achieved platinum status, with even more smashes like "Rock and Roll Over You" and the brilliant "The Other Side Of Life", which takes the listener back to their "Days Of Future Passed" into the modern era of "Long Distance Voyager."


    Power ballads were always Justin Hayward's specialty as "I Just Don't Care Anymore" chalks up another home run, along with the hard rockin' "Running Out Of Love" both of which made this one of The Moodies most popular albums.


    Friday Music is honored to announce the 30th Anniversary Limited Edition of The Moody Blues masterpiece "The Other Side Of Life." Mastered impeccably by long time friend and fan Joe Reagoso, this superlative first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Lp is also featured in a first time gatefold cover presentation for a very limited time.

    Celebrate The Legendary Artist's #1 Record From 1978


    Stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent Red Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably At Friday Music - Pressed At R.T.I.


    Featuring: Edgar Winter, Vinnie Vincent (Formerly Of Kiss), G.E. Smith (Hall & Oates / Bob Dylan)


    In 1978, mega artist Dan Hartman (Free Ride, I Can Dream About You, Living In America) was sitting on top of the world. After a long
    tenure performing with superstars like Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter and The Edgar Winter Group, Dan rewarded his fans once again with
    one of the most important club and pop songs of the era with Instant Replay. Featuring the classic line-up of Dan Hartman, Vinnie Vincent
    (Kiss), G.E. Smith (Bob Dylan) and former bandmate Edgar Winter, the Instant Replay album rapidly became one of the most definitive albums of his very successful career.


    The LP kicks off with the #1 title track Instant Replay and simmers on with the lengthy dance smash Countdown/This Is It. His rock and
    funk side continues with even more classics like Double-O-Love and the brilliant Time And Space, making this one of most popular albums
    of the time and continues to be heard on radio and in dance halls all over the world.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the stunning recordings of Dan Hartman and his affiliations with our other artists Johnny Winter and The Edgar Winter Group. Therefore, it is with much excitement to announce the legendary Dan Hartman masterpiece Instant Replay. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Johnny Winter/Isley Brothers/ Instant Funk) at Friday Music Studios and pressed at RTI, this stunning LP was long overdue for the audiophile vinyl domain.


    Dan Hartman would go on later to become one of the top recording artists, composers and record producers of our time. Collaborating
    with such diverse artists as Joe Cocker, Stevie Winwood and James Brown, his career ended with his untimely passing in 1994.


    In honor of the late artist and this amazing album, we are presenting Instant Replay for the first time on translucent RED Vinyl with a limited edition gatefold cover. We believe this wonderful new audiophile release of Instant Replay will become one of the most anticipated dance and classic rock/pop releases of the year!

    American Tunes

    Nonesuch releases American Tunes, a new studio album by legendary New Orleans musician Allen Toussaint. Toussaint had just completed the album when he passed away in November of last year during a European tour. Recording took place at two sets of sessions with producer Joe Henry: solo piano at Toussaint's New Orleans home studio in 2013, and with the rhythm section of Jay Bellerose and David Piltch-joined by guests Bill Frisell, Charles Lloyd, Greg Leisz, Rhiannon Giddens, and Van Dyke Parks-in Los Angeles in October 2015. The album comprises solo performances of Professor Longhair tunes and band arrangements of songs by Toussaint, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Paul Simon, and others.


    Allen Toussaint's work as composer, producer, arranger, and performer, especially in the 1960s and '70s, helped shape the sound of R&B, soul, and funk as we know it today. He collaborated memorably with artists ranging from Lee Dorsey and Ernie K. Doe to the Pointer Sisters and Labelle, from the Meters and Dr. John to the Band and Paul McCartney. The New York Times recently said, In Mr. Toussaint's long career as songwriter, arranger and producer he has honed a piano style that's supportive and allusive; a little trill or tremolo sums up all the splashy joys of New Orleans patriarchs like Professor Longhair and James Booker, and a syncopated chord under right-hand octaves summons gospel. Mr. Toussaint has the two-fisted, rippling vocabulary of the city's piano legacy, but he uses it in dapper ways.


    Toussaint's children, Alison Toussaint-LeBeaux and Clarence Reginald Toussaint, who have long served as their father's managers, said of the American Tunes album, Our father approached this project with great care and understanding of the songs selected and paid true homage to Professor Longhair, his musical hero. He wanted to bring as much of the Toussaint touch as he could to these wonderful classics.


    Nonesuch previously released The Bright Mississippi in 2009. Also produced by Henry, the record includes songs by jazz greats such as Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, Django Reinhardt, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and Billy Strayhorn. The album received tremendous critical praise, with the Boston Globe saying it couldn't sound more like New Orleans. (Toussaint) revisits jazz classics and takes them for a stroll through Preservation Hall, imbuing his own funky brand of pop-song charisma. The results are coolly sophisticated, an unfussy, mostly instrumental set of slink-and-slide joints shot through with a harmonic imagination that turns even a traditional hymn into an after-hours swing Toussaint's musical soul guides all, making the classics sound like his own.


    That project indirectly grew from Toussaint's contributions to Our New Orleans, the benefit album that Nonesuch released in fall 2005 to aid hurricane victims in the wake of the Katrina disaster. That collection opens with a version of Yes We Can Can, the Toussaint song the Pointer Sisters made famous, newly recorded with producer Joe Henry, and it included a solo piano piece, Tipitina and Me, co-written by Toussaint in tribute to Professor Longhair.


    Joe Henry had first worked with Toussaint when he invited the pianist to join the sessions for I Believe to My Soul, a studio convocation of mature R&B stars. Henry subsequently acted as producer on Toussaint's post-Katrina collaboration with Elvis Costello, The River in Reverse. He describes the most recent sessions: I have been working with Allen Toussaint-under his spell and subject to his influence-for a full decade now. He was a quiet radical, musically-speaking, and a prince of great humility.

    Unearthed (Box Set)

    9x 180-Gram Vinyl Box Set Featuring 79 Songs


    Features A Pair Of Cloth-bound Books Housed In An LP-Sized Black Cloth Slipcase


    One Book Holds The Nine LPs, While The Other Is A Gorgeous 60-Page Coffee Table Book


    Coffee Table Book Incorporates Sylvie Simmons' Extensive Liner Notes, Drawn From Five Days Of Interviews At Cash's Home In Tennessee, As Well As Cash And Rubin's Comments On Every Song On The Set, Plus A Copious Selection Of Photographs From The Recording Sessions, Including Some Of The Last Photos Ever Taken Of Cash


    Johnny Cash's much-acclaimed box set of primarily unreleased material, Unearthed, is to be reissued as a nine-album vinyl box set. To celebrate the Man in Black's enduring and influential legacy, American Recordings and UMe have reconfigured this monolithic collection for its first-ever vinyl release, spreading Unearthed's 79 songs over nine high-quality 180-gram vinyl LPs while expanding the original box's distinctive packaging for the long-playing format.


    The Unearthed vinyl box features a pair of cloth-bound books housed in an LP-sized black cloth slipcase. One book holds the nine LPs, while the other is a gorgeous 60-page coffee table book that incorporates Sylvie Simmons' extensive liner notes, drawn from five days of interviews at Cash's home in Tennessee, as well as Cash and Rubin's comments on every song on the set, plus a copious selection of photographs from the recording sessions, including some of the last photos ever taken of Cash.


    Unearthed was originally released as a CD box set by producer Rick Rubin's American Recordings in November 2003, two months after the country superstar's passing. An expansive box set of material, most of it previously unreleased, recorded during the artist's graceful twilight years.


    The set was originally planned to celebrate Cash and Rubin's decade of recording together, and the final mixes had been sent to Cash, but he passed away before receiving them. The recordings, which run the stylistic gamut from stark balladry to punchy rockabilly to heartfelt gospel to classic covers, offer a stunning encapsulation of Cash's wide-ranging musical vision, and provide a fitting epitaph for his iconic career.


    In its original CD format, Unearthed was acclaimed as an instant classic. Rolling Stone named it as one of the "100 Best Albums of the 2000s" and declared the set a slice of American culture as monumental, and as enduring, as Mt. Rushmore.


    Unearthed is divided into five thematic sections. Who's Gonna Cry focuses on acoustic solo recordings, and finds Cash revisiting several classic songs from his legendary catalog. Trouble In Mind is oriented towards electric performances, and includes guest appearances by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Carl Perkins and members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as Cash's wife and longtime duet partner June Carter Cash. Redemption Songs is largely acoustic, and features duets with Joe Strummer, Fiona Apple, Nick Cave and Glen Campbell. My Mother's Hymn Book demonstrates Cash's lifelong affinity for gospel music, encompassing 15 time-honored gospel standards. Best of Cash On American offers a memorable 15-song selection of highlights from Cash's first four albums with Rubin.


    In the years since Cash's passing, the artist's legend has grown and his music has gained in power. It's hard to think of a more appropriate and impressive send-off for this one-of-a-kind American original than the massive musical statement that is Unearthed.

    The Thin Lizzy 180 Gram Audiophile Series Continues At Friday Music!


    First Time On Audiophile Vinyl In North America


    Celebrate Four Decades Of Thin Lizzy!


    Mastered From The Original Warner Bros. Tapes By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And Capitol Records


    Released in 1980 as a successful follow-up to their much loved Black Rose - A Rock Legend (Friday Music 3338),
    Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and new guitar sensation Snowy White forged ahead once again with their
    trademark hard rock sound and continued their assault on audiences worldwide with their tenth masterpiece Chinatown.


    As the powerful opener We Will Be Strong kicks the album into full gear, featuring the dual lead guitars of Scott
    Gorham and Snowy White, known for creating some of the finest and most familiar guitar riffs in music history, they
    continue their legendary style with this metal anthem. Phil Lynott's vocal and bass attack notched up another career
    defining song as well, which served the band well for years and has truly been one of their most revered tunes.


    Seven more incredible performances from these rock and roll warriors continue to thrill the listener including more
    Phil Lynott hard rock classics like Killer on the Loose, the blues belter Sugar Blues and the stellar title smash Chinatown.
    More rockers flow like the funk infused Having a Good Time and the brilliant Thin Lizzy anthem Genocide (The Killing Of
    The Buffalo). Even the heartwarming Sweetheart, which showcases a soulful side of Lynott's writing and vocal ability,
    truly made this album a fan favorite for years to come. The incredible album closer Hey You truly captures the band's love
    for playing hard rock and playing it righteously, never to be duplicated on wax ever again.


    Tragically, we lost the musical genius Phil Lynott in 1986 and more recently the passing of guitar legend Gary
    Moore. This was their first collaboration together as members of Thin Lizzy, and with the impeccable musicianship of
    Scott Gorham and Brian Downey all delivering the goods, Chinatown is considered one of their greatest achievements
    in their enduring album catalog.


    Mastered impeccably from the original authorized Warner Music tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and
    Capitol Records in Hollywood, Friday Music in very honored and enthusiastic to welcome back the much heralded Thin
    Lizzy classic Chinatown for the first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl.


    To make this more of a treasure for your limited edition Thin Lizzy collection, we are also including a first time
    gatefold cover which features the legendary original album cover art as well as the original photos and artwork included
    in the album inner sleeve not seen in years. As usual, we will include a poly sleeve to protect your hard rockin' audiophile

    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early
    fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos 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 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. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!


    From the remainder of the 1960's into the late 1970's, Elvis Presley would release many more hit albums, smash singles and movies
    before his untimely passing in 1977. Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, RCA Victor awarded their superstar artist and his fans
    with the King's fifth greatest hits collection Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5.


    Featuring a treasure trove of his most familiar top charting hit singles Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 went on to achieve gold status and
    become one of his most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful rock and roll albums.


    Thanks to his finest rock smashes like Burning Love, Moody Blue, In the Ghetto and his landmark Memphis session groover Suspicious
    Minds, this collection of Elvis Presley's biggest hits were just what the fans were screaming for, and the entire album was built around the
    framework of his rocking trademark sound. The 1984 album also was another blockbuster for The King truly proving once again that his career
    was unlike any other in music history.


    Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 also included some of his finest ballads like Kentucky Rain and his monumental NBC TV Comeback Special
    smash If I Can Dream. In total, the album showcases ten important Elvis Presley hit recordings which have truly gone on to become definitive
    classics by any measure of popular music.
