    Music On Vinyl proudly presents a second release of the COLLECTED albums. The new albums will focus on memorable artists with almost a life span of original intriguing music, covering a timeless musical period!

    The Mamas & The Papas were formed by husband and wife John and Michelle Phillips, formerly of The New Journeymen, and Denny Doherty, formerly of The Mugwumps. The last member to join was Cass Elliot, Doherty's bandmate in The Mugwumps. The group considered calling itself The Magic Cyrcle before switching to The Mamas and the Papas as apparently inspired by the Hells Angels, whose female associates were called mamas.

    They released a total of five studio albums and seventeen singles over a four-year period, six of which made the Billboard top ten, and sold close to 40 million records worldwide. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 for their contributions to the music industry.

    The band's first single, Go Where You Wanna Go, was released in 1965. The second single, California Dreamin', was released later in 1965 and quickly peaked in the charts. The band's album, If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears, was released in March 1966 and became the band's only number 1 album on the Billboard 200. The third and final single from their debut was Monday, Monday, which became the band's only US number 1 hit. The song brought the band international success.

    In 1966 they recorded their second album The Mamas And The Papas. I Saw Her Again was the first single from the album before release. When the album was released in 1966, it peaked at number four in the US, continuing the band's success. Words of Love was released as the second single and Dancing in the Street was released as the third and final single.

    Deliver came in the autumn of 1966. The album featured the singles Look Through My Window, Dedicated To The One I Love and Creeque Alley. Shortly afterward, a non-album single called Glad to be Unhappy was released.

    Mama Cass Elliot had a successful solo career becoming popular with hits such as Make Your Own Kind of Music and It's Getting Better.

    COLLECTED is a perfect overview of the multiple classic hits and tracks throughout the career of The Mamas & The Papas and complimented with several popular tracks by Mama Cass Elliot.

    Mama's Gun

    Mama's Gun is the second studio album by Neo Soul singer Erykah Badu, released in 2000. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, the album incorporates Funk, Soul and Jazz styles. Covering themes of insecurity, social issues and personal relationships, Badu delivered a highly intimate and personal album that reached Platinum two months after its release. Mama's Gun features substantial contributions from several members of the Soulquarians outfit, of which Badu was a member. It also features guests such as soul singer Betty Wright and trumpeter Roy Hargrove.


    The album contains the single Bag Lady which, with its colorful, artsy music video, shot to #1 on the R&B charts, and also into the Top 10 on the billboard charts. Bag Lady was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and for Best R&B Song. Also the song Didn't Cha Know? was nominated for Best R&B Song.


    Rolling Stone magazine applauded her for taking chances the way Stevie Wonder or Nina Simone did in their prime and went on to say she has taken her art to the next level. Entertainment Weekly called the album a '70s soul homage featuring live musicians and a smooth-funk sound that wouldn't be out of place on a CTI record.

    The Mamas And The Papas

    In their brief but eventful reign as one of America's hippest and most popular recording acts, the Mamas and the Papas-Denny Doherty, Cass Elliot, Michelle Phillips and main songwriter/sonic architect John Phillips-created a uniquely captivating brand of smart, harmony-laden pop that was consistently inventive and innovative, yet effortlessly commercial.


    Although their hitmaking heyday lasted less than three years, these trendsetting California dreamers left a long-lasting mark on popular music, releasing a series of hit singles and classic albums that remain deeply ingrained in the pop-culture consciousness four and a half decades later. Now, Sundazed Music brings the Mamas and the Papas' much-requested, long-out-of-print second and third albums back to the marketplace in LP editions that preserve their timeless brilliance for the ages.


    These beloved '60s classics have been lovingly restored by Sundazed Music to their original glory, on high-quality vinyl LP. This definitive edition faithfully reproduces the album's iconic original cover art, while careful mastering from the original reels guarantees that it's never sounded better than it does here.


    Released in the fall of 1966, the Mamas and the Papas' self-titled second album remains one of the foursome's most enduring and popular releases, and contains some of the most appealing and accomplished music that they ever produced. Along with the infectious hits "I Saw Her Again" and "Words of Love," The Mamas and the Papas features such John Phillips-penned favorites as "No Salt On Her Tail," "Dancing Bear" and "Trip, Stumble and Fall," along with distinctive covers of Martha and the Vandellas' Motown anthem "Dancing in the Street" and the Rodgers and Hart standard "My Heart Stood Still."

    Mama Earth

    The all-star Mama Earth lineup of Joss Stone (vocals), Nitin Sawhney (guitar), Jonathan Joseph (drums), Étienne M'BappÉ (bass/guitar) and Jonathan Shorten (keyboards) will release their debut EP Mama Earth via Mascot/Provogue.


    The project started when British soul singer Joss Stone and her former musical director Jonathan Joseph hit on the Mama Earth concept of an album driven by the dynamic rhythms of Africa. A band was assembled from all corners of the music world. Jonathan's compadre Étienne M'BappÉ, the dazzling Cameroon-born multi-instrumentalist whose rÉsumÉ spans from John McLaughlin to Robben Ford; Jonathan Shorten, who had produced much of Stone's studio catalogue between penning some of the biggest hits for acts including Gabrielle and (again) Joss Stone. Finally, there was Nitin Sawhney: the genre-slipping wildcard and one-man musical tidal wave whose collaborations take in Sting, Paul McCartney, and the London Symphony Orchestra.


    The 5 musicians convened at Stone's house, where the musical squad didn't take long to feel each other out. Music was spontaneously written on the spot, without any preparation. In the meantime, Stone purposefully kept her own creative process separate from the four musicians. I left them to do their own thing with the music in the studio, she reflects, while I was cooking dinner in the kitchen. I deliberately didn't have any input in the music, because I didn't want to affect it - or it'd all come out hip-hop and R&B! Then they'd come across into the house, give me the track and I'd sit in the kitchen writing lyrics and melodies with my mum. So it was, like, 'You guys do you, and I'll do me - then we'll put it together'. And that's the way it worked. I also went down to the river on my own with a pen and paper and write in the grass by the river. Which was a good way to do it, actually, The whole project is about Mother Nature. It's supposed to be from her perspective.


    Just ten days after they came together - and following a powerful co-production from all five band members - the Mama Earth sessions were over. And yet, you sense that the story of this fascinating band is only just beginning. Impulsive, dynamic and sometimes downright dangerous, this is an album unlike anything else in the five musicians' respective CVs, unprecedented in the clinical modern music scene - and sure to make waves upon its release. I guess this album is essentially how I think of music, considers Sawhney. It was all about being open to the moment. I think that's really what I loved about this project. To me, Mama Earth is what music should be about, really...

    Tell Mama

    Etta James' greatest ever album, and one of the greatest Soul LPs of all time. Contains the hits Tell Mama and Security. Also contains the original version of the blues classic I'd Rather Go Blind. Recorded with the Muscle Shoals session guys at FAME studio. The LP's title song, Tell Mama, as well as Otis Redding's Security became Top 40 hits and Top 20 R&B hits for Etta. It was the B-side of Tell Mama that would become the LP's enduring track, though.

    Mama Tried

    One of Merle Haggard's finest recordings, 1968's Mama Tried is comprised of a number of strong originals and several excellent covers. While Mama Tried, I'll Always Know and You'll Never Love Me Now all happen to be some of Haggard's most solid original offerings, it's his gritty and honest interpretations of songs like Little Ole Wine Drinker Me, In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad), Teach Me to Forget, Run 'Em Off and Too Many Bridges to Cross Over that help distinguish Mama Tried as perhaps the most quintessential Bakersfield-Sound album ever recorded.

    Mama Africa

    Peter Tosh's most "accessible" solo album, Mama Africa, would also be his best seller outside Jamaica, the only one his albums to break into the U.K. Top 50 and even push into the bottom reaches of the U.S. charts.


    Tosh concentrated on the music, self-producing an album that sounds fantastic from start to finish. Every track on the album is just as memorable in its own way, as the artist combines styles, genres, moods, and atmospheres across songs old and new.


    The album revisits while looking to the future. Updated songs like "Stop That Train", "Johnny B. Goode", a U.K. Top 50 hit that boasts an intricate rhythm, are included.

    Hot Chili Mama

    Beausoleil has been steadily releasing albums of indigenous Louisiana music since the mid-'70s. Led by the incendiary fiddle playing of founding member Michael Doucet, the group draws on Cajun (a hybrid of American country and traditional French folk songs), zydeco (a hybrid of Cajun and R&B), rock, jazz, and blues. Though each of Beausoleil's releases is supremely roots-conscious, some, such as Hot Chili Mama, represent the spectrum of the group's influences.


    Such conventional Cajun material as Le Bons Temps Rouler Waltz and the spicy, danceable title cut, which features standard zydeco percussion such as rubboard, triangle and spoons, alternate with touches of calypso (La Chanson De Cinquante Sous), and even a tongue-in-cheek stab at klezmer gumbo (The Mosquito That Ate Up My Sweetheart in New Iberia Polka). Fertile fiddle and accordion interplay and, of course, French lyrics bring the music's rich history to the fore, while the band's adventurous and vigorous approach makes these songs anything but museum pieces. Hot Chili Mama is one of Beausoleil's best, most representative efforts.

    Mama Says I'm Crazy

    Since no one could copyright Mississippi, two major blues performers, Fred McDowell and John Hurt, adopted the state as part of their name. To confuse matters more, both performers made comebacks during the late '50s/early '60s and both specialized in prewar acoustic blues. While a blues novice might find such similarities confusing, the two men's singing and guitar styles are polar opposites. Whereas Hurt's smooth, deep vocals and Piedmont fingerpicking made him easily accessible to the folk revival crowd, McDowell's soulful vocals and forcefully rhythmic guitar represented something more primitive. In 1967, producer George Mitchell brought together McDowell and harp player Johnny Woods for an off-the-cuff session not unlike what one might have heard at a Como, MS, house party. Interestingly, the two men hadn't played together in eight years, but on songs like Standing at the Backdoor and the title track, one would never guess it. This isn't a polite affair, with one player holding back while the other solos. Instead, McDowell and Woods trade notes, overlap, and rush forward on Long Haired Doney and Shake Em' on Down as though they had an unlimited supply of energy. While McDowell's vocals and slashing guitar propel Goin' Away and I Got a Woman forward, Woods' harp adds pizzazz. Acoustic blues fans will warmly embrace Mama Says I'm Crazy and be thankful that Mitchell went to the trouble required to track down Woods for this earthy set.

    Mama Said Knock You Out

    Mama Said Knock You Out is the fourth studio album by LL Cool J, originally released in 1990. It is seen as a third classic in LL's catalog by fans and critics alike. The album spawned four hit singles: The Boomin' System, Around The Way Girl, (which sampled clips from the Mary Jane Girls song All Night Long), the hard-hitting title track itself (which received special notice after LL Cool J's dynamic full-live-band performance of it - unusual for rap performers/performances at the time - during an episode of MTV's Unplugged), and 6 Minutes Of Pleasure. The album reached No. 16 in the U.S. charts, and eventually went 2X Platinum. selling over two million copies according to RIAA.

    I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama

    Sourced from the Original Masters, on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl with Jacket Meticulously Recreated from the Original Art


    Janis Joplin decided to make a sharp turn after Cheap Thrills, and abandoned her previous band Big Brother And The Holding Company. Her new band, the Kozmic Blues Band provided a tighter, more soulful approach to the blues rock 'Big Brother' is known for. By going solo, Joplin made a crucial point: she's got soul for miles on end.


    Featuring a horn section and a stronger emphasis on organ, I Got Them Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! yielded soul burners Try (Just A Little Bit Harder), Work Me Lord and As Good As You've Been To This World, as well as slower tracks like Maybe and Kozmic Blues. Hearing is believing!

Mama, I'm Swollen expands on the full sound of Happy Hollow, setting up a wide sonic expanse that's fitting for a band from the open plains of Nebraska. As always, Cursive is a showcase for frontman Tim Kasher's emotive singing and fierce guitar playing, as best evinced on the dynamic From the Hips, which builds to a feverish crescendo.

    I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!

    Sourced from the Original Masters


    I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! was the rst solo studio album Joplin recorded after leaving Big Brother and the Holding Company. The LP was released on September 11, 1969 and reached gold record status within two months of its release.


    When Janis Joplin died in October 1970 at the early age of 27, thus involuntarily confirming the beatnik adage live fast, love hard, die young, it was only a matter of time before she was crowned the "Queen of Rock". Of greater importance than this posthumous entry into rock 'n' roll's hall of fame is the recognition during her lifetime of her explosive vocal style, which - so Vogue - turned the whole history of singing upside down.


    Janis Joplin's discography is just as short and changeable as her life. After two LP releases with the standard 'cast' of rock musicians in the band Big Brother And The Holding Company, with whose excellent musical support she obtained her first recording contract with Columbia Records in 1968, the company provided her with a group augmented with organ and winds. Their intention was to broaden her vocal expression with blues and funk elements, which, however, her most loyal fans regarded as betrayal of the ideals of rock music. Rock fans in the Old World were less critical, especially since Joplin and her Kozmic Blues Band went on a two-month tour of Europe. For those Woodstock fans whose ears are still ringing with the band's full, meaty wind sound and Janis's bluesy soul singing, this album is an absolute must.

    I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! (Speakers Corner)

    When Janis Joplin died in October 1970 at the early age of 27, thus involuntarily confirming the beatnik adage live fast, love hard, die young, it was only a matter of time before she was crowned the "Queen of Rock". Of greater importance than this posthumous entry into rock 'n' roll's hall of fame is the recognition during her lifetime of her explosive vocal style, which - so Vogue - turned the whole history of singing upside down.



    Janis Joplin's discography is just as short and changeable as her life. After two LP releases with the standard 'cast' of rock musicians in the band Big Brother And The Holding Company, with whose excellent musical support she obtained her first recording contract with Columbia Records in 1968, the company provided her with a group augmented with organ and winds. Their intention was to broaden her vocal expression with blues and funk elements, which, however, her most loyal fans regarded as betrayal of the ideals of rock music. Rock fans in the Old World were less critical, especially since Joplin and her Kozmic Blues Band went on a two-month tour of Europe. For those Woodstock fans whose ears are still ringing with the band's full, meaty wind sound and Janis's bluesy soul singing, this album is an absolute must.



    Musicians:



    • Janis Joplin (vocal)

    • Cornelius Snooky Flowers, Terry Clements (saxophone)

    • Luis Gasca (trumpet)

    • Richard Kermode, Gabriel Mekler (organ)

    • Sam Andrew (guitar)

    • Brad Campbell (bass)

    • Maury Baker, Lonnie Castille (drums)



    Recording: June - August 1969 by Sy Mitchell, Jerry Hochman, and Alex Kazanegras

    Production: Gabriel Mekler



    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.

    Deliver

    In their brief but eventful reign as one of America's hippest and most popular recording acts, the Mamas and the Papas-Denny Doherty, Cass Elliot, Michelle Phillips and main songwriter/sonic architect John Phillips-created a uniquely captivating brand of smart, harmony-laden pop that was consistently inventive and innovative, yet effortlessly commercial.


    Although their hitmaking heyday lasted less than three years, these trendsetting California dreamers left a long-lasting mark on popular music, releasing a series of hit singles and classic albums that remain deeply ingrained in the pop-culture consciousness four and a half decades later. Now, Sundazed Music brings the Mamas and the Papas' much-requested, long-out-of-print second and third albums back to the marketplace in LP editions that preserve their timeless brilliance for the ages.


    These beloved '60s classics have been lovingly restored by Sundazed Music to their original glory, on high-quality vinyl LP. This definitive edition faithfully reproduces the album's iconic original cover art, while careful mastering from the original reels guarantees that it's never sounded better than it does here.


    Released in early 1967, the group's third longplayer Deliver is one of the Mamas and the Papas' essential works, and an exquisitely engaging expression of the group's singular pop artistry. The album produced a pair of Top Five singles in the amusingly autobiographical "Creeque Alley" and the quartet's transcendent reading of "Dedicated to the One I Love," previously recorded by the "5" Royales and the Shirelles. Other highlights include the much-loved originals "Look Through My Window" and "Boys & Girls Together," and reworkings of the Smokey Robinson-penned Temptations classic "My Girl" and the Beatles/Isley Brothers hit "Twist and Shout."

    Wu-Tang Forever

    Hitting the number one spot in the US Album charts, Wu Tang's second album Wu-Tang Forever (1997) followed up on the massive success of Enter The Wu-Tang. With more elaborate production, soundtrack style violins & synths and the addition of protÉgÉe Cappadonna, the gang continued to tell stories about ghetto life, hoochie mamas and getting high as a kite. Standout tracks are Reunited, For Heaven's Sake and Visionz, with their slightly off-beats and inventive use of samples, with great narratives to boot. Right from the get-go, Wu-Tang Forever is an outstanding and defining Hiphop record (on no less than EIGHT sides) that's built to last.
