    Volume Two

    She & Him make music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008's Volume One has evolved into a bonafide touring band, and She & Him are here to stay.


    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford; hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy and romantic. All songs (except 4 and 7) written by Zooey Deschanel. Produced by M. Ward.

    Love The Future

    With their debut album Love the Future, the Harvard duo of D.A. Wallach and Maxwell Drummey, have boldy produced an album that is poised to break barriers and set new standards. The glorious She Loves Everybody mixes sensibilities equally drawing on Motown and power-pop. Beneath the Veil throws country twists into hip-hop aesthetics. Neal has echoes of swing, hip-hop and rock with a guitar break paying tribute to Les Paul.


    The band has already been lauded by the press with features such as Spin's Who's Next `08 and Rolling Stone's Artists To Watch. And take it from no less than Pharrell Williams, who signed the unclassifiable duo to his Star Trak/Interscope label after an early copy of the album, recorded by the two largely in a dorm basement studio while they were students at Harvard, was passed from them to his engineer, Drew Coleman.


    It's been a long time since I've heard a project teeming with this sort of musicality and originality, says Williams, the phenomenal artist/producer/trailblazer of Neptunes, N.E.R.D. and various other projects. You're going to watch history unfold with these guys. I feel it in my gut. That works for Wallach and Drummey, who trace an aesthetic lineage from Beethoven to Brian Wilson, from Les Paul to Prince to, well, Pharrell Williams. They see walls coming down with a new generation inspired by innovative artists like Gnarls Barkley and OutKast.

    Mythomania

    Cryptacize deals in the unforgettable melody, the forsaken chord and the extravagant sentiment. The surefooted and richly nuanced vocal arabesques of Nedelle Torrisi, like a modern day Freddie Mercury or Ronnie Spector, strangely complement the guitar of Chris Cohen, which sounds like a maniacally sped-up a la Les Paul or staccato and funny like Roy Smeck or Adolph Jacobs of the Coasters. Syncopated drum corps rudiments and pit-orchestra rave-ups from Michael Carreira propel the songs with a refreshingly buoyant touch that never lapses into rock music clich?s. There are also widescreen cinematic moments that take on a mournful and otherworldly pathos, like Experiment in Terror by Henry Mancini, but with vocals by Cambodian 60's pop legend Ros Serey Sothea or like Arabic diva Fairouz singing along to a psychedelic film score by Popol Vuh.

    The Shaw Tapes: Live In Detroit 5/27/88

    "The best garage band in America since the '60s. Very primitive they made
    people with Les Pauls and Marshall amps look like idiots."
    - Jack White


    Recorded at a party in a Detroit storefront in 1988, this live recording of the
    Gories captures the band at their apex. The ferocity, intensity and grit that come
    through this record is a testament to why the Gories oeuvre has been heavily
    mined for the past two decades by hundreds of poseurs, pretenders and johnny-come-latelys
    The dual-guitar attack of Dan Kroha's smooth Fender Jaguar and
    Mick Collins screechy Kent Videocaster, coupled with the snare-less, cymbal-less,
    bass drum-less primitive drumming of Peggy O'Neill forms a perfect meld of
    40's blues, 50's R&B, 60's garage and 70's punk. Dare we say it, but in terms of
    in uence and reach, the Gories were the Velvet Underground of their day

    Through Being Cool

    Hey pups, what's good? Last night we shredded through THROUGH BEING COOL from front to back. Tore right through it like an eagle on a skateboard. SHREDDIN'. You guys have no idea how fired up we are about this tour and music and life.


    We've been rediscovering all the vinyl we each own: old classics like Ravel's "Bolero" and modern classics like the Youth Of Today "Disengage" 7-inch. Perhaps as part of that we were inspired to press a 7-inch single of "The Tide Of Our Times" along a with a song recorded during the same self-titled sessions for a b-side. Both shredders. Emotional, hardcore. We'll have this out on tour.


    Don't sit down yet. You may want to curl your toes over the edge of that surfboard now. Every toe now - hang ten. We repressed THROUGH BEING COOL on 180g vinyl. Did we mention that [this is] remastered* and repressed on 180g vinyl? That's heavy stuff, this is vinyl your kids or nephews can jam out to in 15 years. Tell them you were there.


    *remastered, not remixed. The sound of plugging in the Les Paul is just the beginning of hearing it as if you're INSIDE the guitars.

    Splendido Hotel (Speakers Corner)

    Just how much creative gunpowder had Al Di Meola ignited in his early career? First of all there was the flamenco firework in the best-seller Elegant Gypsy, and secondly his mega-successful live album resulting from a summit meeting in San Francisco with Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin. After this great start it was no wonder that such prominent colleagues as Jan Hammer, Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, Anthony Jackson and Les Paul were eager to participate in the present album Splendido Hotel.


    This great line-up of musicians produce a rich, saturated sound and create numerous 'flavours' in this cocktail of sounds, which - as a double LP - can be likened to a fantastic long drink, as it were. Di Meola's idea of fusion starts off in the opening number as a slow, sluggish oriental-like melody, which develops to take on a rock rhythm. High-speed and lovingly detailed flamenco such as is found in Splendido Sundance alternates with subtle rhythms (Two To Tango) and good-humoured lighter numbers with an electronic undertone such as Roller Jubilee and a funky version of Bert Kaempfert's Spanish Eyes. With this great mix, the musicians create a wonderful atmosphere in which every Latin aficionado will feel at home.

    Musicians:



    • Al Di Meola (guitar, cello, drums, percussion)

    • Chick Corea (piano)

    • Les Paul (guitar)

    • Jan Hammer (synthesizer)

    • Anthony Jackson (bass)

    • Mingo Lewis (conga, bongo, percussion

    • Philippe Saisse (keyboards, marimba)

    • Steve Gadd (drums)

    • Eddie Colon (percussion)




    Recording: 1979 at CBS Recording and Electric Lady Studios, New York, by Dave Palmer and Love Castle Studios, Los Angeles, by Bernie Kisch

    Production: Al Di Meola and Philip Roberge




    About Speakers Corner



    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    But Not Really (Speakers Corner)

    One man comes to mind when the words 'funk' and 'fun' are connected with a jazz musician: Les McCann. The man from Kentucky, self-taught and a true heavyweight on the delicate piano stool, dedicated his whole life on the road to performing funk. He was highly successful - whether playing with his trio or with Eddie Harris, as a pianist or as a singer, in a club or on a big stage - and he always succeeded in captivating his audience.
    On But Not Really, the first of seven LPs on the Limelight label, he plays in a trio with Victor Gaskin on the bass and Paul Humphrey on drums. The three musicians were carefully guided by their producer, Jack Tracy and the liner notes describes their close collaboration. A Little Three-Four is highly recommended listening, as is Yours Is My Heart Alone which fans of Lehar's operettas will enjoy singing along to while others will appreciate the fantastic improvisations in this popular piece which Les McCann performs less showily than Oscar Peterson in his version but with more humour and emotion.



    This Limelight album offers piano trio jazz that is free from intellectual encumbrance - it is jazz for the soul. Recorded in December 1964, the LP is now available once again after almost 60 years with the original outstanding and lavish cover artwork!



    Musicians:



    • Les McCann (piano)

    • Victor Gaskin (bass)

    • Paul Humphrey (drums)



    Recording: December 1964 at Radio Recorders, Hollywood

    Production: Jack Tracy

    Rough And Ready

    Jeff Beck is truly a worldwide gift to rock music and guitar enthusiasts everywhere. There will never be another Jeff Beck, a guitar genius who has enthralled generations of aspiring musicians and music lovers with the many fine recordings he has made for the past five decades.


    Celebrating five decades in the music business, this English native initially captivated millions of kids in the 60's with his first recordings with The Yardbirds. He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar licks and dynamic presence on the stage. As Jeff moved on and started a stunning solo career with his first masterpiece Truth (FRM-26413), a few years later The Jeff Beck Group emerged with his friends Cozy Powell (drums), Bob Tench (vocals), Max Middleton (keyboards) and Clive Chaman (bass) recording the monumental supergroup LP Rough And Ready.


    The 1971 smash LP kicks things off with the hard rocker Got the Feeling. This radio and fan favorite graced the air- waves on the ever growing FM radio format and helped bolster even further the rest of the Rough And Ready album with follow up hits like the soulful tour de force of Situation featuring a great vocal from future Humble Pie crooner Bob Tench and a stellar keyboard workout from Max Middleton.


    More solid numbers from the band include the great medley of New Ways/Train Train, the power ballad rocker Jody, plus the prog-rock champion Max's Tune. All in all, making Beck's third solo effort one of his most revered in his long lasting and huge catalog of classic recordings.


    Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing new ways of using technique, distortion and effects to a whole new generation of guitar players, Jeff Beck's Rough And Ready is truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues artists.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Jeff Beck, his arsenal of fine recordings already on our label. That is why we are so very proud to announce another fine installment in The Jeff Beck/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his third legendary masterpiece Rough And Ready.
    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck, Yes, Deep Purple) from the original 1971 Epic Records stereo mixes and manufactured at R.T.I., the Jeff Beck Group's Rough And Ready will truly become one of the most important and histori- cal 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl titles in quite some time.


    To celebrate Jeff Beck's five decades in the music business, we further enhance this limited anniversary edition with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as a classic inside gatefold rare color photo of the Jeff Beck playing his signature Les Paul. Jeff Beck Group...Rough And Ready...Impeccable first time audiophile stereo vinyl and gatefold cover...Happy New Year! Got the Feeling!

    Ted Nugent (45 RPM)

    The Best-Sounding Track - Stranglehold - Has Side 1 All To Itself! Cut At 45 RPM, Spread Over One Whole Side - Unbelievable Sound! Stranglehold Indeed!


    Gatefold Jacket!


    Mastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound Using Legendary Mastering Engineer George Marino's Notes From His Original Mastering Sessions With The Original Analog Tapes!


    Remastered By Smith In George's Mixing Room Using Marino's VMS 80 Lathe


    200-Gram Vinyl Plated By Gary Salstrom And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings, The World's Finest Lp Maker!


    Self-Titled Album Made Nugent And His Gonzo Guitar A Rock Icon!


    There was a moment, in 1975 to be exact, when Ted Nugent was taken very seriously. As a musician. Before he decided to become whatever it is that he is now. ... Let's think back to 1975 when Ted was just a sex-crazed rock star who made a killer self-titled debut solo record that has now been remastered and reissued as a gatefold, by Chad Kassem's Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings. While his songwriting interests have never really changed, these were the best takes on all those ideas that Nugent would from this point on build his career on. ... on Ted Nugent his guitar riffs were never sharper, his playing never less indulgent. This is a record where even the inner cuts like 'Just What the Doctor Ordered' and 'Queen of the Forest' were good to great. - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2014


    We were fortunate with this one. Fortunate you say? How so? Well for starters, the late and lauded mastering engineer George Marino at Sterling Sound mastered and cut the original 1975 release of Ted Nugent. Almost 40 years later, after some digging by George's protege, Ryan Smith, on behalf of this Analogue Productions reissue - lo and behold - George's mastering notes resurfaced as well as the original analog tape masters.


    With the release of Ted Nugent, the self-proclaimed Motor City Madman and god of gonzo guitar became not just a star, but one of rock 'n' roll's icons. The songs Motor City Madhouse and Just What The Doctor Ordered would become two of many of Ted's road anthems. These and the other 10 monster tracks on Ted Nugent were clear evidence that Ted was an artist to be reckoned with.


    Ted Nugent still likes to reflect back on what his critics were saying as he put his band, the Amboy Dukes, to rest and started the next phase of his career-one that would be under his own vision, his own direction and most importantly, his own name.


    I remember some of the more creative writers of the ilk claimed it would be 'the final nail in my coffin' - quote, unquote, Nugent says with a redemptive laugh. I knew better.


    The mention of Ted's name elicits different reactions from rock fans today in different parts of the country. Nods of familiarity on both coasts, and clenched fists and knowing grins in the vast Midwest and South. He's sold millions of albums. Rock radio couldn't play enough of him - and neither could promoters, who made him the hardest-working and top-grossing gunslinger of the mid- and late-'70s. While most other rockers posed with their sleek Stratocasters and Les Pauls, there was Nugent, whipping his mane of hair around his head as he cranked out sound on his big Gibson Birdland, a hog of a guitar with rich, thick and creamy tones - clearly not something to be trusted to amateurs. But in Nugent's hands it screamed, squealed and cried, providing a vivid 3-D voice for the monster crunch of Stranglehold, the menacing stomp of Stormtroopin and the fiery boogie of Hey Baby, Motor City Madhouse and Snakeskin Cowboys.


    We feel this is Ted's finest recording by far. And here, you'll hear this classic more clearly and vividly than ever before. This reissue was remastered by Smith in the late George Marino's mixing room at Sterling Sound using Marino's VMS 80 lathe and an ATR 102 tape machine modified by Mike Spitz-the only one of its kind in the world.. Then this 200-gram vinyl beauty was pressed by Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest LPs, where it was plated for vinyl by Gary Salstrom, QRP's master plating technician and general manager. The power burned into these grooves is difficult to find anywhere else this side of the Atlantic, and indeed it remains a rare commodity anywhere in the world.


    As Ted himself proclaims: If anyone wanted to know what rock 'n' roll was all about, this is the only album they'll need.

    Rave Tapes

    Rave Tapes is the eighth studio album by Mogwai and their second
    for Sub Pop. Since their formation in 1995, the Scottish quintet
    has established itself internationally through a prolific recorded
    output and a commitment to touring that few of their peers can
    match.


    With Rave Tapes, Mogwai's mastery of sound and space is firmly
    at its apex. The album is a lustrous collection mined from the same
    quarry as its predecessors, wreathed in painterly textures underpinned
    by increasingly electronic beats. The haunted strains of "Deesh"
    channel the slow-burning ecstasy of their 2006 song "Auto Rock"
    (a key presence in the denouement of Michael Mann's film of Miami
    Vice that year), while the guitars on which Mogwai built their
    reputation remain, if less overtly belligerent this time round, as
    evidenced by the somnambulant opener "Heard About You Last
    Night" and the sonic scowl of "Hexon Bogon."


    In the past year, the band have broadened their reach with the
    soundtrack to the acclaimed Canal+ supernatural drama series Les
    Revenants (retitled The Returned when broadcast on Channel 4 in
    summer 2013, averaging 1.8m viewers a week; the show is now
    broadcasting in the US on the Sundance Channel, and being remade
    for A&E). As the show reached its climax on UK TV screens in July,
    Mogwai returned to their predecessor to Les Revenants, the 2007
    soundtrack to Douglas Gordon and Philippe Pareno's film Zidane:
    A 21st-century Portrait, in sell-out performances with the band
    playing live while the film was projected above them.


    Having barely had time to draw breath, the ever-restless band
    kicked off 2013 with the release of the Les Revenants EP, and
    wrote and recorded Rave Tapes at the band's Castle Of Doom studio
    in Glasgow, Scotland. Rave Tapes was recorded with Paul Savage,
    who also worked with the band on their 2011 Sub Pop album,
    Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. The release of Rave Tapes
    will signal the beginning of a frantic year of live activity, including
    the group's maiden foray into Africa. Fasten your seatbelts.

    Inherent Vice Soundtrack

    Nonesuch will release Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack to Oscar-nominated filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson's new feature film, Inherent Vice). An adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name, Inherent Vice, which will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in theaters starting on December 12, is set in the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and stars Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin and Owen Wilson. In addition to nine compositions by Jonny Greenwood, the soundtrack features Spooks, an unreleased Radiohead tune performed by members of Supergrass, as well as other recordings from the movie's era (complete track list follows). Additional performers include The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Neil Young, Can, and The Marketts, among others.


    This is the third Anderson film that Greenwood has scored. Their previous collaborations include the critically praised soundtrack for 2007's Academy Award-winning There Will Be Blood and 2012's The Master, both released by Nonesuch. Rolling Stone said of The Master that its visual poetry is matched by Jonny Greenwood's haunting, hypnotic score. The New Yorker described the music as rich and inventive. The Times of London exclaimed: Jonny Greenwood's score is superb. Of the There Will Be Blood score, the Boston Globe noted that the squealing, cicada-like strings of...Popcorn Superhet Receiver masterfully evoke the film's apocalyptic vision of the West.


    All Tracks Composed by Jonny Greenwood, except Vitamin C by Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit, Irmin Schmidt, Holger Schuering, and Kenji Suzuki; Here Comes the Ho-Dads, by Joseph Saraceno; Spooks, by Colin Greenwood, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Philip Selway, and Thom Yorke; Les Fleur, by Richard Rudolph and Charles Stepney; Sukiyaki, by Rokusuke Ei and Hachidai Nakamura; Journey Through the Past, by Neil Young; Simba, by Les Baxter; and Any Day Now, by Burt Bacharach and Bob Hilliard.

    Silk Degrees

    Silk Degrees by Boz Scaggs was not only one of the finest examples of crossover soul, pop & rock ever recorded, but it was also one of the biggest albums of the 70's & included some of the finest grooves ever played by Boz Scaggs, which netted him a Grammy for his mega number one hit Lowdown.Other major hit singles included in this ltd. ed HQ vinyl edition are Lido Shuffle, Georgia & It's Over. Other artists covered songs from this watershed album & had major hits themselves, which further illustrates the importance of this highly loved LP. Includes bonus LIVE cd in the first 1000 copies!


    Personnel: Boz Scaggs (vocals); Fred Tackett, Louie Shelton (guitars); Les Dudek (slide guitar); Plas Johnson (tenor saxophone, horns); Bud Shank (saxophones, horns); Chuck Findley (horns, flugelhorn); Jim Horn, Tom Scott, Dick Hyde, Paul Hubinon, Vincent deRosa (horns); David Paich (keyboards, synthesizer); David Hungate (bass); Jeff Porcaro (drums, percussion); Carolyn Willis, Marty McCall, Jim Gilstrap, Augie Johnson, Maxine Green, Pepper Swenson (background vocals).


    Recorded at Davlen Sound Studios and Hollywood Sound Studios, Los Angeles, California. Boz Scaggs's 1976 breakthrough, SILK DEGREES, was not only his biggest-selling album, it was also one of his best. Here Scaggs collaborated with keyboardist and bandleader David Paich, who would soon form the hugely successful band Toto with this record's drummer, Jeff Porcaro. In Paich, Scaggs found a foil who added just enough pop gloss to make his blues- and R&B-tinged material palatable to the masses. Crucially, though, the pair keeps Scaggs's remarkable voice at the center of things, never going too far overboard with the studio polish. As a result, hit singles Lowdown and, particularly, the horn-spiked R&B of Lido Shuffle still sound fresh, while the ballads remain soulful. A year or so later, Rita Coolidge would take one of those ballads, We're All Alone, into the Billboard Top Ten with her own version.

    Ted Nugent (Out Of Stock)

    Mastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound Using Legendary Mastering Engineer George Marino's Notes From His Original Mastering Sessions With The Original Analog Tapes!


    Remastered By Smith In George's Mixing Room Using Marino's VMS 80 Lathe


    200-Gram Vinyl Plated By Gary Salstrom And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings, The World's Finest Lp Maker!


    Self-Titled Album Made Nugent And His Gonzo Guitar A Rock Icon!


    There was a moment, in 1975 to be exact, when Ted Nugent was taken very seriously. As a musician. Before he decided to become whatever it is that he is now. ... Let's think back to 1975 when Ted was just a sex-crazed rock star who made a killer self-titled debut solo record that has now been remastered and reissued as a gatefold, by Chad Kassem's Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings. While his songwriting interests have never really changed, these were the best takes on all those ideas that Nugent would from this point on build his career on. ... on Ted Nugent his guitar riffs were never sharper, his playing never less indulgent. This is a record where even the inner cuts like 'Just What the Doctor Ordered' and 'Queen of the Forest' were good to great. - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2014


    We were fortunate with this one. Fortunate you say? How so? Well for starters, the late and lauded mastering engineer George Marino at Sterling Sound mastered and cut the original 1975 release of Ted Nugent. Almost 40 years later, after some digging by George's protege, Ryan Smith, on behalf of this Analogue Productions reissue - lo and behold - George's mastering notes resurfaced as well as the original analog tape masters.


    With the release of Ted Nugent, the self-proclaimed Motor City Madman and god of gonzo guitar became not just a star, but one of rock 'n' roll's icons. The songs Motor City Madhouse and Just What The Doctor Ordered would become two of many of Ted's road anthems. These and the other 10 monster tracks on Ted Nugent were clear evidence that Ted was an artist to be reckoned with.


    Ted Nugent still likes to reflect back on what his critics were saying as he put his band, the Amboy Dukes, to rest and started the next phase of his career-one that would be under his own vision, his own direction and most importantly, his own name.


    I remember some of the more creative writers of the ilk claimed it would be 'the final nail in my coffin' - quote, unquote, Nugent says with a redemptive laugh. I knew better.


    The mention of Ted's name elicits different reactions from rock fans today in different parts of the country. Nods of familiarity on both coasts, and clenched fists and knowing grins in the vast Midwest and South. He's sold millions of albums. Rock radio couldn't play enough of him - and neither could promoters, who made him the hardest-working and top-grossing gunslinger of the mid- and late-'70s. While most other rockers posed with their sleek Stratocasters and Les Pauls, there was Nugent, whipping his mane of hair around his head as he cranked out sound on his big Gibson Birdland, a hog of a guitar with rich, thick and creamy tones - clearly not something to be trusted to amateurs. But in Nugent's hands it screamed, squealed and cried, providing a vivid 3-D voice for the monster crunch of Stranglehold, the menacing stomp of Stormtroopin and the fiery boogie of Hey Baby, Motor City Madhouse and Snakeskin Cowboys.


    We feel this is Ted's finest recording by far. And here, you'll hear this classic more clearly and vividly than ever before. This reissue was remastered by Smith in the late George Marino's mixing room at Sterling Sound using Marino's VMS 80 lathe and an ATR 102 tape machine modified by Mike Spitz-the only one of its kind in the world.. Then this 200-gram vinyl beauty was pressed by Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest LPs, where it was plated for vinyl by Gary Salstrom, QRP's master plating technician and general manager. The power burned into these grooves is difficult to find anywhere else this side of the Atlantic, and indeed it remains a rare commodity anywhere in the world.


    As Ted himself proclaims: If anyone wanted to know what rock 'n' roll was all about, this is the only album they'll need.
