Arkansas (Awaiting Repress)John Oates is one half of the best-selling duo of all time, Hall & Oates, as well as an accomplished solo artist. Now, he has teamed up with an amazing group of accomplished and rising stars in the Americana music world to bring his new album, Arkansas, to life.
The project originally began as a tribute to Oates' idol, Mississippi John Hurt. It evolved organically, during a series of Nashville recording sessions, into a unique, retrospective collection drawing from a wide range of Oates' musical influences. Asked about the style and sound of Arkansas, he says, ''it's like Dixieland dipped in bluegrass and salted with Delta blues.''1. Anytime

VoicesVoices on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity
1980 Set First of Duo's Record-Breaking Trilogy of Smash Albums
Includes Kiss on My List, You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', You Make My Dreams, and Everytime You Go Away
Self-Produced Album Marks Pair's Transition Towards Fusion of Sleek Pop, Melodic New Wave, and Blue-Eyed Soul
Divine Sonics: Spacious, Polished Production Shines on Mobile Fidelity Reissue, Mastered from the Original Master Tapes
Daryl Hall has inferred that if Voices failed to catch fire, it would have likely signaled the end of he and John Oates' recording career together. Suffice it to say that the 1980 effort not only caught on-it established a production and songwriting template that would help largely define the decade. The album also propelled Hall and Oates into the mainstream and turned them into superstars, placing them at the top of the charts for a multi-year run during which the duo proved superior singers, master songwriters, and visionary producers.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's reissue at last affords this pop classic an expansive, engaging, dynamic reach absent from all prior editions. Self-produced, the record's sonics were key to its success. As evidenced by the greater information and finer details found in this analog edition's grooves, the polished, sleek, and open sound works hand-in-hand with the arrangements. Hall and Oates' knack for stylish tones, instrumental placement, and edgy accents has never been clearer-literally or figuratively. This LP is nothing short of a game-changer.
By the dawn of the 1980s, Hall and Oates had already released more than a half-dozen albums and attached themselves to a folk-pop model they gradually took in blue-eyed soul directions. Hints of a pop/new wave/R&B amalgamation initially appear on 1979's X-Static, but only fully come into play with confidence, conviction, and commercial flair on Voices. Arriving upon a near-flawless fusion of dance grooves, soft rock rhythms, smooth vocals, romantic sentiments, catchy beats, and spotless hooks, the collaborators simultaneously crossed over into multiple markets and eradicated stylistic boundaries.
Rightly recognized for its four hit singles-the irresistible "Kiss on My List," building "You Make My Dreams," cover of the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," and original rendition of the poignant "Every Time You Go Away," which Paul Young took to the top of the charts years later-Voices towers as both an 80s masterpiece and all-time pop classic.
Independent of the ubiquitous fare, the record holds up courtesy of the deep-album cuts. There isn't a weak note or false move to be found. Hall and Oates paint "United State" with uptempo assertiveness; "Big Kids" passes as first-rate new-wave rock; "Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear the Voices)" pays loving tribute to the duo's doo-wop influences; "Gotta Lotta Nerve (Perfect Perfect)" oozes emotional rawness. Their stage set, Hall and Oates would further advance their craft on Private Eyes and H20, also available from Mobile Fidelity.

Rock 'N Soul Part 1Rock 'N Soul Part I On Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP From Mobile Fidelity
The Definitive Hall and Oates Greatest-Hits Compilation: Rock 'n Soul Part I Loaded With Nine Top 10 Singles, Including Kiss On My List and Private Eyes
Mastered From the Original Master Tapes and Pressed On 180 Gram LP At RTI
All The Signature Songs From The 1970s And 80s Are Here, From Sara Smile And She's Gone To Maneater
Other compilations have longer track lists and go farther back into their career, but no Hall and Oates greatest-hits collection surpasses Rock 'n Soul Part I. Originally released at the height of the duo's career in fall 1983, the 12-song set functions as a time machine back into an era when Daryl Hall and John Oates dominated the charts with songs that have long since become standards. While a majority of the anthology draws from the group's trio of mammoth RCA albums spanning 1980 through 1982, it also includes the pair's only three Top 10 smashes from the 1970s: Sara Smile, She's Gone, and the chart-topping Rich Girl. One-stop shopping for the absolute best of Hall and Oates doesn't come any easier.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's analog reissue presents nine Top 10 Hall and Oates singles with awe-inspiring detail and palpable realism. Lifelike tones grace the array of guitars, pianos, basses, and voices placed against synthesized backdrops. Each member's singing claims enhanced intimacy and balance. The collective harmonies sound sharper, the dynamics richer, and the soundstages wider and deeper. While the tandem's peers often relied on robotic mechanisms and now-dated keyboard devices, Hall and Oates wisely merge the period's savvy styles with tried-and-true soulful instrumentation.
Indeed, with one listen to this definitive-sounding version of Rock 'n Soul Part I, and you'll understand why the duo's music not only ruled radio and record stores in the Reagan era but also continues to be referenced by influential artists today. You already likely know every song - or nearly every one of them - here by heart. Arriving upon a near-flawless fusion of dance grooves, soft rock rhythms, smooth vocals, romantic sentiments, catchy beats, and spotless hooks with #1 singles such as Kiss On My List and Private Eyes, the collaborators simultaneously crossed over into multiple markets and eradicated boundaries.
All the trademarks - swinging verse structures, call-and-response choruses, stick-in-your-head bridges, sleek keyboard layers, doo-wop fills, and, in some places, reggae-nodding accents or cool saxophone lines to stir up the mood and atmosphere - that make the duo's music irresistible pulse throughout Rock 'n Soul Part I. Eight of the singles included here cracked the Top 5. They remain prototype intersections of blue-eyed soul, edge new wave, and dance, blueprints for pop mastery that catapulted Hall and Oates to becoming the most successful duo in rock history.
Hear the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees' standard-setting equilibrium between polish, melody, muscle, and craft on their signature hits like never before.

Real Love (Discontinued)Two-time Grammy nominated soul man Ryan Shaw and Dynotone Records present Real Love, the follow-up to his acclaimed debut This Is Ryan Shaw. Called a massive talent by Billboard and first-class by Entertainment Weekly, the success of the New York-based singer's debut led to a pair of Grammy nominations for 'Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance' and opening slots for John Legend, Joss Stone, and even Van Halen. Produced by veteran Jimmy Bralower (Eric Clapton, Hall & Oates) and Johnny Gale (Ronnie Spector), each song on Real Love explores a different side of love, from the emotional to the spiritual.
The horn blasts and gospel hollers on Karina envelops take-me-back heartbreak through the church choir while the Jerry Ragovoy gem You Don't Know Nothing About Love delivers goose bump inducing vocal gymnastics. From rockers like That Is Why, the simmering funk of Can't Hear the Music, to slow grooves like Evermore and Morning, Noon & Night, Real Love runs the gamut of classic American soul music, all with a modern twist, featuring Shaw's extraordinary vocals. Guest appearances by Robert Randolph, Al Kooper, and the Soul Survivors help cook up what Ryan calls a gumbo infused with soul, rock and two tablespoons of gospel.1. Real Love

John Prine (Out Of Stock)
Prine's 1971 self-titled debut set the tone for the rest of his career. A critical smash, the record contains many of his best known compositions. Proving himself capable of tackling folk balladry, country, and rock with ease, Prine seems to spring into being as a fully formed singer-songwriter at age 24. Lyrically diverse, Prine offers topical songs such as Sam Stone, the tale of a drug addicted Vietnam vet, achingly sad songs, such as the oft-covered Angel from Montgomery, and, of course, his trademark wit gets ample time in the spotlight. Produced by the legendary Arif Mardin (Aretha Franklin, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Hall and Oates), the record is understated, letting Prine's comfy voice drive things. When needed, the famous house band at American Recording Studios in Memphis kicks in tasteful backing. -Ian Landau1. Illegal Smile
