    Soul Junction

    Though it was recorded in 1957 (on the same day as his All Mornin' Long LP), Soul Junction was not released until 1960 on the Prestige label.
    Featuring the fine tenor work of his fellow Miles Davis Quintet alum, John Coltrane, and the blazing trumpet of Donald Byrd, Soul Junction is one
    of Garland's finest releases as a band leader. The center piece is the 16-minute long title track which features a stunning, mellow and bluesy solo from Red himself.

    Tenderness Junction

    A classic of the original NYC freak-folk scene!


    The Fugs were the original outsider artists, releasing their first recordings on the legendary avant-garde label ESP-Disk' in the mid 1960s before signing to Reprise. Formed around the core of Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, The Fugs combined jug band music, smutty rock'n'roll, country ballads, Gregorian chants, canticles, and bohemian poetry into a stoned stew of anti-establishment freakouts! Now their first two albums for Reprise are available on vinyl for the first time since their original 1967-68 release.

    Chet Baker And Crew

    Import


    The numbers heard on Chet Baker & Crew were among a prolific flurry of recordings Baker was involved in during the last week of July 1956 -- fresh from an extended European stay. Sessions were held every day from the 23rd through the 31st, which resulted in such classic titles as The Route, Chet Baker Sings, and Chet Baker Quintet at the Forum -- which is also available under the title Young Chet -- as well as Chet Baker & Crew. The crew on these sides includes Phil Urso (tenor sax), Bobby Timmons (piano), Jimmy Bond (bass), Peter Littman (drums), and of course Baker (trumpet/vocals). Joining the combo on both the original as well as the alternate take of To Mickey's Memory and Pawnee Junction is Bill Loughbrough (chromatic tympani). His unmistakable percussive accents and tuned drum solos give these West Coast bop tracks uniquely Polynesian intonations. The band members take full advantage of their individual roles and abilities as soloists to really stretch out on Slightly Above Moderate and the Urso-credited composition Halema -- named after Baker's wife. The chemistry of cool that flows between Urso and Baker is perhaps at its finest during the seamless exchange heard on Worryin' the Life Out of Me. Timmons also boasts notable contributions throughout. His playful and scampering style dresses up the bluesy Lucius Lu and Line for Lyons, among others. The latter is also notable as it contains the sole Baker vocal on this set.

    Initiation

    The music of Brooklyn duo ERAAS creates an entirely
    self-contained world - an illusory, mysterious, at times
    supernatural realm that conjures a sense of suspense
    while being seductive. From the brief dialogue that
    precedes the pummeling beats of opener Looking Glass
    to the closing hiss and crackle of the title track, Initiation
    represents a coming of age for the band. For anyone
    who's heard their 2012 self-titled debut album, Initiation is
    the culmination of the different themes explored there,
    honed, refined, pushed further and fashioned into its own
    unique world; a weird and alluring junction of ghostly
    atmospheres, punishing percussion, spectral vocals,
    phonography and sound design, all interwoven into a
    captivating atmosphere that is distinctively ERAAS' own.


    With Initiation, the band seem to be looking for a sign of
    hope within the emptiness that surrounds them, trying to
    make amends with those in their lives, but not quite sure
    how to. A struggle we can all identify with. The songs on
    Initiation flow one after the other, creating an entirely
    immersive experience, playing out similar to a short film
    full of unexpected twists and turns. Listening to this record
    feels like a journey of sorts - faceless intruders, dreams
    of non-existent lovers, ghosts in the doorway, immortality,
    betrayal, and revenge -- trying to make sense of it all.

    Commune

    There is no direct association between mysterious Swedish
    psychedelicists GOAT and Argentinian master of magical realism, Jorge
    Luis Borges. Yet their mission appears to be the same. Borges generated
    his ideas from historical curiosities across the globe-knife duels on the
    South American plains, Middle Eastern heresiarchs, Chinese pirates-and
    twisted them into fictions that blurred the lines between footnotes and
    outright fantasy. GOAT's sound is the sonic embodiment of this principle,
    working heavy psych-rock, Nigerian afrobeat, German krautrock, Anatolian
    funk, and a host of other micro-niches into a hallucinatory celebration
    of rock's diverse manifestations.


    Despite the success of GOAT's critically-acclaimed 2012 debut, World
    Music, the individual identities involved remain shrouded in mystery:
    GOAT performs in masks, and spokespersons maintain that the group
    is simply an ongoing multi-generational collective of musicians from the
    isolated, Swedish locality of Korpilombolo, a junction of native Sami
    people, Scandinavian settlers, and the rare wayfaring outsiders. Beyond
    that, GOAT divulges very little. It's as if GOAT are taking cues from Borges'
    short story "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius," wherein a clandestine enclave
    of intellectuals attempt to create a new reality by inserting articles on a
    fictitious, puzzling state into modern encyclopedias. Borges' secret
    society wanted their heretical ideologies to infiltrate common thought
    through an invented past; GOAT wants to revitalize the communal
    experience of rock music by creating an alternate origin story.


    Ultimately, it is GOAT's music that speaks the most about them, and
    on Commune GOAT deliver a heavy dose of acidic grooves, hypnotic
    incantations, and serpentine guitar lines, building on the much-lauded
    sound of World Music to explore new territories. Starting with the layered
    percussive groove, Eastern guitar flourishes, and convoking vocals of
    "Talk To God," Commune re-establishes the trance-inducing rhythms
    and exotic blaze of guitar that characterized World Music. From there,
    the album launches into darker and more propulsive territories,
    occasionally emerging for breaths of transcendental '60s psych-pop and
    driving proto-metal fuzz.


    "GOAT is mainly a symbol of sacrifice. To sacrifice the individual for
    the collective good. To become one with the rest of humanity and
    universe," said an unnamed GOAT conspirator in a rare correspondence.
    With that philosophy, GOAT is propagating their crossbred music and
    mysticism by sharing Commune with the world. And, while we'll never
    see GOAT's faces on the cover of a glossy magazine, their intoxicating
    conjurations are poised to infiltrate our collective psyche with the
    subversive magical allure of a Borgesian fable.

    Both Sides of the Sky

    Both Sides Of The Sky presents 13 studio recordings including 10 which have never before been released. All but two of these studio recordings were made during a fertile period between January 1968 and 1970. Jimi's mastery and use of the studio as a proving ground for new songs resulted in a growing collection of extraordinary material. This album completes a trilogy of albums [with Valleys Of Neptune and People, Hell & Angels] presenting the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in the Hendrix archive. The songs include fascinating alternate versions of Stepping Stone, Lover Man and Hear My Train A Comin' as well as recordings where Jimi is joined by special guests Johnny Winter and Stephen Stills. Both Sides Of The Sky was mixed by Eddie Kramer, the engineer for all of Hendrix's albums throughout the guitarist's lifetime, and produced by Janie Hendrix, Kramer and John McDermott.


    Mannish Boy - The first ever studio session by the group Hendrix would christen as his Band Of Gypsys. Hendrix, Cox & Miles shared a love for the blues as this driving, uptempo reworking of Mannish Boy by Muddy Waters makes clear.


    Lover Man - Just two weeks before their triumphant New Year's concerts at the Fillmore East in NYC [yielding both 1970's Band Of Gypsys and 2016's sequel Machine Gun], Hendrix gathered with Cox and Miles to cut this dynamic rendition of what had become a favorite concert staple.


    Stepping Stone - A totally unique take on this Hendrix favorite, with Jimi showcasing both blues and country styled licks atop a relentless, galloping beat.


    $20 Fine -Stephen Stills joined Jimi, Mitch Mitchell and Buddy Miles Express keyboardist Duane Hitchings at this September 1969 session. With Stephen handling lead vocals and organ, Jimi added multiple guitar parts to this rollicking Stills original.


    Power Of Soul - This 1970 studio session came three weeks after the Band Of Gypsys concerts at the Fillmore East. While a live version remains one of the highpoints of Band Of Gypsys, Jimi never released a studio version during his lifetime. For this album, we present the mix that Hendrix and Kramer prepared of the complete song at Electric Lady on August 22, 1970.


    Jungle - The influence of Curtis Mayfield can be heard here as Jimi expands on the Villanova Junction Blues theme he made famous by its inclusion in the 1970 Woodstock documentary.


    Things I Used To Do - Jimi is joined for this rendition of Guitar Slim's blues classic by Johnny Winter. Jimi's trademark guitar work and Winter's deft slide playing weaves in and around the foundation set by bassist Billy Cox and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young drummer Dallas Taylor.


    Georgia Blues - Jimi reunited with some old friends from his pre-Experience days. Lonnie Youngblood, with whom Hendrix played in R&B groups like Curtis Knight & The Squires, voiced this superb twelve bar blues neatly underpinned by Hendrix's sublime rhythm and lead guitar work.


    Sweet Angel - With Axis: Bold As Love only just released, Jimi immediately turned his focus to recording what would become Electric Ladyland. This gorgeous, instrumental reading of Angel,, features Jimi on guitar, bass and vibraphone joined by Mitch Mitchell.


    Woodstock - Stephen Stills came to this session fresh from having visited Joni Mitchell, who had a new song that Stills was excited to try and record. Long before CSNY's version, Stephen, Jimi and Buddy Miles recorded this amazing rendition.


    Send My Love To Linda - A superb new Hendrix original composition recorded with Cox and Miles in the aftermath of their successful Band Of Gypsys performances at the Fillmore East.


    Cherokee Mist - Together with drummer Mitch Mitchell, Jimi created this moody, evocative original complete with his playing of a sitar to complement his traditional electric guitar.

    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.

    Ellington At Newport (Awaiting Repress)

    Numbered, Limited Edition Mono LP


    Pandemonium: Historic 1956 Live Set Triggered Spontaneous Audience Outburst That Fed Directly into Feel, Outcome of Performance


    Ellington's Legendary Comeback Punctuated by Paul Gonsalves' 27-Chorus Saxophone Solo


    Unrivaled Analog Transparency: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    One of the Most Riveting and Important Jazz Recordings Ever Made


    It spurred Duke Ellington's comeback into the mainstream. It captures a performance so energetic, wild, unexpected, and unprecedented that the music literally caused thousands of people to jump up and stand on their chairs, worrying officials that a riot might ensue. It is jazz of the highest order, played at an almost rock n' roll pace, and with an enthusiastic pep that confirms Ellington and his ensemble fed off the crowd's reaction as the collective lit into each new stanza. It is Ellington's best-selling album. It is Ellington at Newport.


    Like few records before or since, the 1956 set owes as much to context and circumstance as it does instrumental execution. Years prior to his appearance in Rhode Island, Ellington had suffered lackadaisical record sales and a falling out of the public eye, as bop and hard bop supplanted tradition big bands. Yet in preparation for the event, Ellington worked on experimental ideas and a reshaping of some of his standards.


    The iconic arranger/composer's foresight comes into fruition throughout the white-hot set, never more so than on "Diminuendo and Crescendo In Blue," on which tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves erases all rules and outlays a 27-chorus solo that left everyone in awe-and prompted them to stand on chairs, dance feverishly, and hoot and holler to an extent that caused Ellington to ultimately cool things off. The improvisational flight epitomizes boldness, freedom, risk, and, to the bandleader, an assuredly loud response to the critics that had believed his well was tapped.


    The songs in advance of the climactic moment are no less exciting; Ellington and his 15-piece collective manhandle notes with ease, swinging and sliding through "Festival Junction" with a requisite balance of poise and panache, and kicking heels on Newport Up via Ellington's spry piano riffs, Jimmy Hamilton's spicy clarinet feeds, and Clark Terry's trumpet runs. In every way, Ellington at Newport is as quintessential as Kind of Blue, Giant Steps, and Way Out West.


    And now, the 1956 classic can be experienced in an analog fidelity never before as authentic or transparent on any pressing. Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI (America's best record plant), this numbered limited edition Silver Series LP of Ellington's triumph boasts tremendous separation, deeper low frequencies, clearer highs, and front-to-back dynamics. Horns blare with multi-hued color, the Duke's 88s ring out with treble finesse, and the rhythm section claims an added presence buried on previous editions. Musically and sonically, you need this LP. It's that simple.
