This World Is Not EnoughSince 2010, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (Iceage, Vår) has used the Marching
Church moniker to a variety of musical ends, both live and recorded. However,
the project as it exists on This World Is Not Enough wasn't born until November
2013. With a live performance looming and no real idea what the set would be,
Rønnenfelt found a new vision for the band while daydreaming at a gig at the
venue where Marching Church was set to perform. "What I pictured was me in a
comfortable armchair, adorned in a golden robe, leading a band while a girl kept
pouring me champagne when I required it," Rønnenfelt explained. "This raised
the question, 'What sort of music would go along with this picture?'"
Rønnenfelt discovered the answer to that question with a lineup rounded out by
Kristian Emdal and Anton Rothstein of Lower, Cæcilie Trier (Choir of Young
Believers), Bo H. Hansen (Hand of Dust, Sexdrome) and Frederikke Hoffmeier
(Puce Mary). Under Rønnenfelt's leadership, the group composed some music,
rehearsed twice, and played their show. It was decided that night that this incarnation
of Marching Church would make a record.
This World Is Not Enough was influenced at first by obscure works like David
Maranha's experimental drone-rock saga Antarctica, and eventually by soul
bandleaders like James Brown and Sam Cooke. "The whole month of writing
and rehearsing and the one week we had in the studio was truly an explosion
of ideas," Rønnenfelt said. "Improvisation, something I have never worked with
before, was crucial in the making of this album, considering the loose nature
of the writing on some of these songs. The album works because of the band's
incredible ability of breathing life into these, at times, very simple ideas and
The eight tracks that made the final cut are, in Rønnenfelt's words, "songs of
nocturnal longing, preposterous self-obsession and cockeyed etiquette," and they
are an exemplary statement of the songwriter's extraordinary growth since the

Soul DeepSoul Deep is an essential compilation of The Box Tops' best tracks. Hailing from 1960's Memphis, The Box Tops are best known for the hits The Letter, Cry Like a Baby and Soul Deep, and are considered a major blue-eyed Soul group of the period.
They performed a mixture of current Soul music songs by artists such as James & Bobby Purify and Clifford Curry, Pop tunes such as A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum, and songs written by their producers, Dan Penn, Spooner Oldham, and Chips Moman.
Their records are prime examples of the styles made popular by Moman and Penn at American Sound Studio in Memphis. Many of their lesser known Top 40 hits, including Neon Rainbow, I Met Her in Church, and Sweet Cream Ladies, Forward March, are considered minor classics.1. The Letter

Freedom Highway Complete: Recorded Live at Chicago's New Nazareth
Church is a newly remixed, remastered and expanded edition of the live
concert masterpiece recorded by the Staple Singers in April 1965 in support
and celebration of that year's historic civil rights marches from Montgomery
to Selma, Alabama. In this stirring collection you will find the fervent
emotions and depth of feeling that only the most inspired gospel, folk and
handclapping music can provide.
First released on Epic Records as an LP in 1965 the original Freedom
Highway album was constrained by the time limits of 12" vinyl and the full
service was edited down to only include key performance tracks. Freedom
Highway Complete: Recorded Live at Chicago's New Nazareth Church
is newly expanded to include 30+ additional minutes of the original
performance and church service.
The exultant title song, "Freedom Highway", was written in March, 1965, at
the time Rev. Martin Luther King led the momentous freedom march from
Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. "When the Saints Go Marching In," "He's
All Right" and "We Shall Overcome" are other songs of a jubilant nature. In
the last selection, The Staple Singers are joined by the great choir of the
New Nazareth Church under the direction of Miss Ora Lee Hopkins.1. Intro by Pops Staples*

Neon BibleNeon Bible is the second studio album by the Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire, originally released on March 5, 2007 (UK) and March 6, 2007 (US) on Merge Records. Originally announced on December 16, 2006, through the band's website, the majority of the album was recorded at a church the band bought and renovated in Farnham, Quebec. The album is the first to feature drummer Jeremy Gara and the first to include violinist Sarah Neufeld among the band's core line-up.
Neon Bible became Arcade Fire's highest-charting album at the time, debuting on the Billboard 200 at number two, selling 92,000 copies in its first week and more than 400,000 to date. Being released within a month of similarly successful releases by The Shins (Wincing the Night Away) and Modest Mouse (We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank), Neon Bible was cited as an example of the popularization of indie rock.LP 1

Dead RevolutionHammers of Misfortune was formed in the mid-1990s under the name Unholy Cadaver. At the time, the only members were guitarist John Cobbett and drummer Chewy Marzolo, both of whom shared vocal duties. In 2000, the band changed its name to Hammers of Misfortune, taking its moniker from a track on the Unholy Cadaver demo. Recruiting Scalzi and Janis Tanaka (formerly of Fireball Ministry and L7), the band released its 2001 concept album The Bastard. The Bastard received many positive reviews in the metal community, including several "best of 2001" awards from magazines such as Terrorizer. In 2003 the band released their second album The August Engine. This album was also well received by the metal community, getting a 10/10 review from Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles. In 2006 a new lineup toured the US twice, and recorded and released "The Locust Years". After The Locust Years, he band recorded the double album, Fields/Church of Broken Glass (Profound Lore), in 2008. In March 2010, Hammers of Misfortune announced that they had signed a record deal with Metal Blade Records. Since then, Metal Blade has re-released The Bastard, The August Engine, The Locust Years, and Fields/Church of Broken Glass. In October 2011, the band produced their fifth studio album, 17th Street, another critical success which landed on many year end lists, including Popmatters and NPR.
As for differences between Dead Revolution and its predecessor 17th Street, Cobbett says it's more varied, using different tones. The mainman also thinks it's a darker and heavier effort. If trends and opinions are anything to go by, it would appear Hammers of Misfortune are sliding slowly into, well, darker and heavier territory. 17th Street, by comparison, was fiercer than Fields / Church of Broken Glass. Likewise, Dead Revolution eats its forebear 17th Street for proverbial breakfast. To wit, there's no power ballad ("Summer Tears") on Hammers of Misfortune's newest.1. The Velvet Inquisition

ADAD-TEM-6117xExplosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead PlaceExplosions in the Sky's second effort takes a more studied, even lush approach to the literate chaos of their 2001 debut. But put on your sad sack thinking cap now, because Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is a contemplative and heady rush of masterful melancholia. Its six songs are multi-minute, slow motion workouts of gentle electric guitar plucks and subtle/sudden washes of percussion ù they're still instrumental, but as lyrical as anything in the indie rock universe. 'Only Moment We Were Alone' turns on a simple, melancholy guitar figure, the drums shifting from insistent catch-up mode to a studied march built to introduce the next layered crescendo. Explosions in the Sky doesn't shift as suddenly or jarringly on Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place; the quartet has applied more structural predictability this time out, but is still quick about setting the sad butterflies in your stomach to fluttering. 'Memorial' is the album's meditative heart. It begins so quietly, reduced to brittle landscapes of tone. Lightly chiming guitars drift in, like the echoes of church bells off in narrow city streets. Then, like each of the album's movements, it surges forward in a rush, like the overtures of Sonic Youth separated, dried, and ultimately lengthened in the blistering Texas sun. The final blast of distortion and staccato drumming is Earth at full bittersweet bluster. 'Your Hand in Mine' ends things as they began, with a pair of determined guitars picking out a melody that's both pretty and pretty damn heartbreaking.First Breath After Coma

The March entry in our 25th anniversary reissue series is Bloomed, the 1994 debut album
from Richard Buckner. The album will be remastered and released on 180-gram
vinyl and will include a CD containing 11 bonus tracks of radio sessions, live
performances, and original recordings of songs that appeared on future releases.
Spin magazine described Buckner as "equal parts Bay Area bohemian and dust bowl
traditionalist" and named Bloomed one of its best albums of 1994, while Pitchfork
wrote, "It's a traditional outsider-country record in the lineage of Townes Van Zandt.
Buckner's voice is all honey and oak, his guitar style elaborately twanging, his constant
subject matter heartache."
Richard Buckner provides some background on the album:
Bloomed was originally (erroneously?) released on an unnamable German label in 1994.
I was living in San Francisco at the time, having just moved out of a residential hotel
and into the 1906 hilltop prefab that adorns the cover. At the time, I was heading a
band called The Doubters. We were playing high profile events such as The Covered
Wagon Saloon's Musical Barstools, but weren't making much headway. We had been
turned down consistently every year by SXSW, but I was somehow finagled in as
an unannounced guest onto an already unofficial SXSW showcase created by Butch
Hancock at his gallery in downtown Austin. There, I met up again with Lloyd Maines,
who agreed to produce my first record.
Maines and I met in Lubbock, TX, a few months later, where we worked with
Lubbock musicians in a small recording studio walled in wooden shingles Sharpied
with bible passages from various church groups that also enjoyed working there.
It was 112°F the morning I arrived under the suspicious (Californians are merely
B-grade yankees) gaze of downtown's Buddy Holly statue. That first night there, it
hailed so hard that heaven's angry pellets were storming in under my motel door. It
only let up for a few moments that first night, allowing me to run across the street to
get a butter burger and fries to go. We finished four days later and I flew back to San
Francisco, dismembered the band, and embarked on a tour that would last about 20
years (or a few days, if you count what I actually remember).
Nothing's changed. I'm still dodging the sky and busking to strangers.LP

Mozart - Symphony #36 - Piano CTO 15 (Speakers Corner) (Pre-Order)
Let us recall that great American and citizen of the world who trod every musical pathway and who held his audience riveted with unbounding energy and charisma. Whether as a composer of operas or musicals, performer, conductor or mentor, "Lenny" felt at home everywhere. And all who were privileged enough to get to know him can confirm this, whether they experienced him as a circumspect teacher who taught interested amateurs about church music, or even as a pianist bawling out hit songs in a bar.
Quality was guaranteed with records sporting the words "Bernstein conducts ...", and no music lover ever missed adding such gems to his collection. But most recordings of Bernstein as a master of the keyboard lie buried in the archives.
Where some musicians fail due to a lack of perspicacity or false self-judgement, Bernstein appears to take himself beyond his normal bounds in his double function as solo pianist and conductor. His interpretation of Mozart is richly nuanced but free of all romantic trimmings; his Mozart is what we have learned to value over the past few years of the present century. This recording is absolutely first class, both musically and technically, and is thus a true collector's object.

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.

Mississippi's Son House was already legendary for a small collection of live field recordings made by folklorist Alan Lomax in 1941 and 1942, and for having taught some important licks to both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters before he was rediscovered by a new generation of college-age fans in 1964.
The Father of the Delta Blues recorded this namesake LP for Columbia Records a year later in 1965. It's become, in the words of Living Blues magazine - Essential recordings by one of the greatest bluesmen ever. And now, Analogue Productions presents a reissue unmatched in sonic quality and luxury presentation. For our version we turned to Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound to remaster the recording from the original master tapes. The freshly cut lacquers were then plated and pressed on 200-gram vinyl by our own Quality Record Pressings.
Son was born Eddie James House, Jr., on March 21, 1902, in Riverton, Miss. By the age of 15, he was preaching the gospel in various Baptist churches as the family seemingly wandered from one plantation to the next. He didn't even bother picking up a guitar until he turned 25; to quote House, I didn't like no guitar when I first heard it; oh gee, I couldn't stand a guy playin' a guitar. I didn't like none of it. But if his ambivalence to the instrument was obvious, even more obvious was the simple fact that Son hated plantation labor even more and had developed a taste for corn whiskey. After drunkenly launching into a blues at a house frolic in Lyon, Miss., one night and picking up some coin for doing it, the die seemed to be cast; Son House may have been a preacher, but he was part of the blues world now.
Now, sit back and enjoy one of the genre's greatest, on a reissue that's the best that's been made to date. So authentic, so real - that's the Analogue Productions difference.
