    Sara Watkins

    Sara Watkins self-titled debut, eagerly anticipated by the significant fan base shes built after nearly two decades as fiddle player and vocalist for Grammy Award-winning trio Nickel Creek, boasts an easygoing virtuosity. The youthful Watkins, who joined Nickel Creek when she was barely in her teens, displays formidable skill as a multi- instrumentalist, playing the guitar and ukelele as well as the fiddle, and is just as versatile, and breathtakingly mature, as a singer. Watkins incorporates folk, country, gospel, and pop into her 14-song set, produced by former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville. Shes joined by a wide range of old friends and longtime heroes, including alt-country duo Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, and Elvis Costello drummer Pete Thomas; colleagues from the bluegrass world like Tim OBrien, Punch Brothers Chris Eldridge, Ronnie McCoury, and Rayna Gellert; and Nickel Creek band-mates Chris Thile and Sean Watkins.


    Watkins mixes eight of her own songs with tunes by such artists as John Hartford, Tom Waits, and Davíd Garza. Her self-penned fiddle numbers are exuberant, foot-stomping instrumentals, while the songs for which she wrote both music and lyrics have a heart-meltingly lovelorn quality. Watkins knows how to channel in her own work the plaintive emotions of classic country and timeless pop. Theres honesty and empathy on tracks like the sweetly soulful My Friend, the brooding Bygones, and rueful album closer, Where Will You Be. She proves to be as astute as Emmylou Harris or Linda Ronstadt in her choice of covers, segueing gracefully from the aforementioned Waits, Garza and Hartford to the lighthearted country-and-western swing of Jimmie Rodgerss Any Old Time, to the world-weariness and spiritual yearning of Norman Blakes Lord Wont You Help Me, to the romantic wistfulness of Jon Brions Same Mistakes.

    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.

    Uncertain As It Is Uneven

    The Lowest Pair had been planning to release a new record in the Spring
    of 2016. So, in early 2015, Palmer convinced Kendl to spend a winter in
    Minnesota, with the temptation of working with local greats Dave
    Simonett and Erik Koskinen on the new material. The duo then set off on
    what would be a successful season of touring their second, critically acclaimed
    album, The Sacred Heart Sessions (Spin: "solemn and
    humble;" The Bluegrass Situation: "deeply felt"), and a new-old-time
    record, I Reckon I'm Fixin' On Kickin' Round To Pick A Little. In the fall,
    returning to the midwest to finish up the recordings they had begun a
    few months prior, Kendl and Palmer found themselves with a whole new
    batch of songs ready to lay down. After much deliberation, they
    ambitiously decided the two collections should be released together in
    2016.


    The new records, Fern Girl and Ice Man, as well as Uncertain As It Is
    Uneven, could be viewed as two windows into the growing and changing
    world of The Lowest Pair. Uncertain stays the course of their previous
    releases, being focused on stripped down, intimate arrangements to
    support their timeless songwriting and haunting vocals. Fern Girl is a
    more moody and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new studio
    production directions, and what it might sound like for The Lowest Pair
    to be supported by a full band, while keeping one foot planted in the
    rootsy aesthetics which drew them together from the beginning.
    Kendl Winter, born in Arkansas, moved to Olympia, Washington after
    high school, drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively and thriving
    music scene. She put three solo records out on Olympia's indie label, K
    Records, and performed in nationally-touring northwest string bands
    before beginning The Lowest Pair in 2013 with Palmer T. Lee. Palmer
    built his first banjo when he was 19 from pieces he serendipitously
    inherited. Shortly after deciding songwriting would be the most effective
    and enjoyable medium for his musings, he began cutting his teeth
    fronting Minneapolis string bands and touring the midwest festival
    circuit, which is where he and Kendl first met, on the banks of the
    Mississippi.


    So, back to that Spring of 2016 plan: with little attention to tedious
    practicalities and with an eye focused securely on delivering to their
    growing fan base a truly special treat; a rootsy, bluegrassy, old-timish
    version of meiosis has happened, as one new album became two new
    albums.


    Fans already know that the chemistry between Palmer's Midwestern
    charm, those long winters spent listening to a steady diet of Townes Van
    Zandt and John Hartford, and Kendl's poetic and playful way with
    words, her unique approach to the banjo (just listen to "Dreaming Of
    Babylon"), and her barefoot-in-the-cool-river-water mystique combine to
    make a powerful sound, but what's new in 2016 is both the inclusion of
    those non-banjo sounds (harmonica, drum, bass, violin) and an
    incredible expansion of their songbook. In a way, two records, the playful
    and the hush, the dark and the rooted, the pillow and the nightmare, the
    pin drop and the starry night; the juxtaposition of the ups and downs
    that are experiences in a day, in a year, in a minute, all this has
    demanded from the band more than just "a new record." Fern Girl and
    Ice Man and Uncertain As It Is Uneven mark the arrival of America's
    next great musical duo, and it's over the course of these two albums that
    that boast becomes clearly rooted in truth.

    Gentle On My Mind

    Gentle on My Mind, released in 1967 on Capitol Records, was Campbell's break-through album. It was the first to go to No. 1 on the country music charts and reach the platinum sales mark of 1 million albums sold. At its heart is the GRAMMY-winning song "Gentle on My Mind," a cover of John Hartford's original, which Glen recorded with friends The Wrecking Crew.

    Standards


    "I believe you should allow the
    songs to be boss, and the songs
    were saying, 'You need to make
    a rock record.'"
    -Lloyd Cole


    It's been 30 years since Lloyd Cole appeared
    on the radar of music fans with his band,
    The Commotions, and their Gold-selling debut,
    Rattlesnakes. Cole has kept busy, releasing solo
    albums since 1990, and Omnivore Recordings is
    proud to present his latest, Standards.


    Originally released in 2013, Standards was only
    available overseas. Omnivore is correcting that
    by offering the title here on LP.


    Recruiting band members from his self-titled
    debut - including drummer Fred Maher
    and Matthew Sweet on bass, as well as former Commotion Blair Cowan on keyboards - Standards features 10 Cole-penned originals, plus a
    cover of John Hartford's "California Earthquake."


    Recorded in Los Angeles, Easthampton, and
    New York, Standards is prime Lloyd Cole. With
    a nod to the past, but always an eye toward the
    future, Standards will take its place a mong Cole's
    best work.

    The Sacred Heart Sessions

    The Lowest Pair features the duel banjo picking of Kendl Winter and
    Palmer T. Lee. Draped in Kendl's high lonesome harmonies and Palmer's
    Midwest croon, their debut release, 36¢, (Team Love Records) was
    hailed by many outlets and American Songwriter praised their earnest,
    earthy songcraft. Team Love will release their
    sophomore album, The Sacred Heart Sessions.


    Arkansas-born and now homesteading in Olympia, Washington, Kendl
    Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van and
    spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Kendl
    brings to The Lowest Pair her wonderfully weaving poetry of song, old
    and new, and a voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent
    with a little Olympia twist. Palmer T. Lee who hails from Minneapolis was
    nineteen years old when he inherited a couple of banjos and discovered
    he could reassemble them into his dream instrument. Former front man
    for the much loved high energy bluegrass band The Boys n' the
    Barrels, Palmer's songs are distilled into the warm sweet sounds of his
    percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style
    played on a pieced together banjo.


    After nearly a year of traveling the country playing clubs, hotels, house
    shows, back yards and street corners, they found their way back up to
    Minnesota, this time to Duluth where they sat down to record the followup
    to 36¢.   Linking up with Tom Fabjance at an old church seemed like
    the perfect way to expand on their sound without diluting their original
    magical formula. The Sacred Heart Sessions is an album that allows the
    listening to enter the space that surrounds its creation. One can virtually
    feel the walls and vaulted ceiling of the old wooden church rising up,
    creating a natural reverb and warming the air.


    Be it Kendl's punk roots, her admiration for the traditional American
    songbook, or the gravitational pull she sensed drawing her to Olympia,
    it's her combining these talents and creative impulses with Palmer's
    Midwestern charm, the long winters spent listening to a steady diet of
    Townes Van Zandt and John Hartford and the strange moment of fate
    that left him with two inherited banjos as a young man; this combination
    has resulted in a uniquely original sound that is The Lowest Pair.
