    Live From Alabama (Awaiting Repress)

    In August of 2012, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit assembled in their home state of Alabama in front of a couple of sold-out concert halls to record their first live album, Live From Alabama. After years of hard touring, the critically-lauded band has gelled into a versatile rock and roll squad that is equally at ease performing Muscle Shoals soul to hardcore country to balls-out rock. Live From Alabama's tracklist mines some of Isbell's most popular songs and includes a pair of inspired covers in Neil Young's Like a Hurricane and Candi Staton's Heart on a String.

    The Sirens Of The Ditch

    For the past six years, Jason Isbell was one of three frontmen for the critically acclaimed Drive-By Truckers and although fans may have been shocked by his departure from the band in April of 2011, once you hear this, his solo debut Sirens Of The Ditch (which was co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood) it will only confirm that Isbell by no means is putting his feet up. Musicians joining Isbell on the album include Shonna Tucker (bass) and Brad Morgan (drums) with cameos from Patterson Hood, his father David Hood, Spooner Oldham, John Neff and more.


    Recorded over the past four years at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding), Sirens Of The Ditch is a diverse collection of songs that incorporates elements of rock, blues and soul music into a heartfelt mix of songs that favor piano and pedal steel over buzzing guitars, although theres a fair share of overdriven amps here as well. A lot of old soul musicians came through here in the late 60s and 70s and helped define the Muscle Shoals sound, the lifelong Alabamian explains, so that influence was always in my environment, but on this record I really tried to capture that.

    Communique (45 RPM) (Pre-Order)


    Smooth, Effortless, Relaxed, Tuneful, And Deceivingly Simple: Dire Straits' Communique Teems With Technical Perfectionism, Southern-Styled Grooves, And Low-Key Blues


    Reference-Level Detail, Depth, Soundstaging, Balance, And Presence: Communique Has Never Sounded Better Than On Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP Version


    Mark Knopfler's Mesmerizing Textures, Intricate Lines, And Crisp Tones Pair With Engaging Storytelling And Tight Rhythms: Every Song An Example Of Understated Virtuosity


    The performances on Dire Straits' Communique are so smooth and effortless, they were originally criticized for replicating the blueprints of the band's breakout debut. Time, however, has a way of changing perspectives and exposing the truth. More than 35 years after its original release in June 1979, Communique rightfully takes its place as the group's most underrated record - a nine-track set spiked with engaging storytelling, relaxed vibes, and deceiving simplicity.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Communique elevates Dire Straits' sophomore album to an even higher plane. Recorded in the Bahamas by Muscle Shoals veterans Barry Beckett and Jerry Wexler, the songs benefit from a laidback approach that makes guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler and company's stellar playing seem even more fluent - particularly when experienced on this collector's 45RPM version, on which the wider grooves allow for more detail retrieval and deeper musical insight.


    Knopfler's mesmerizing guitar textures and composed vocals appear as if they're right in front of you, holding court amidst expansive soundstages and deep-black backgrounds. Details, imaging, and presence are on a level associated with the finest audiophile recordings. You'll be hard-pressed to find another LP with cleaner, pinpoint-accurate tones. Mobile Fidelity's LP also brings into transparent view Knopfler's seemingly perfect intricate lines as well as the simpatico accompaniment from his band mates. Whole, lively, and balanced, the bass and drums arrive with a solidity rarely heard on albums of this era. Communique has truly never sounded better.


    Of course, the audiophile sonics mean little if the artistic content is lacking. Needless to say, Dire Straits' technical perfectionism and creative elan prevail throughout. Knopfler's penchant for sketching cynical characters is further developed on moody tracks like Where Do You Think You're Going and News, while Wexler's presence at the boards ensures the band keeps the rhythms extra tight. The quartet's low-key blues and swampy, Southern-styled grooves turn every song into an exercise in understated virtuosity.


    Refusing to give into excess, magnetic tunes such as Lady Writer and Angel of Mercy split a fine line between insinuating and insisting. The group shows off a combination of control, virtuosity, and tunefulness that harkens back to a rock n' roll's classic period while also pointing the way ahead. Need indisputable evidence of Dire Straits' compositional strengths? Cue up the closing Follow Me Home on this pressing and get lost amidst the peacefulness of the gentle surf and chirping crickets that frame the song. Heavenly.


    The sequence serves as additional proof that Communique remains one of the best-sounding rock records ever made.

    Still Crazy After All These Years

    The third new studio album of Paul Simon's post-Simon & Garfunkel career was a musical and lyrical change of pace from his first two, Paul Simon and There Goes Rhymin' Simon. Where Simon had taken an eclectic approach before, delving into a variety of musical styles and recording all over the world, Still Crazy found him working for the most part with a group of jazz-pop New York session players, though he did do a couple of tracks (My Little Town and Still Crazy After All These Years) with the Muscle Shoals rhythm section that had appeared on Rhymin' Simon and another (Gone at Last) returned to the gospel style of earlier songs like Loves Me Like a Rock. Of course, My Little Town also marked a return to working with Art Garfunkel, and another Top Ten entry for S&G. But the overall feel of Still Crazy was of a jazzy style subtly augmented with strings and horns. Perhaps more striking, however, was Simon's lyrical approach. Where Rhymin' Simon was the work of a confident family man, Still Crazy came off as a post-divorce album, its songs reeking of smug self-satisfaction and romantic disillusionment. At their best, such sentiments were undercut by humor and made palatable by musical hooks, as on 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, which became the biggest solo hit of Simon's career. But elsewhere, as on Have a Good Time, the singer's cynicism seemed unearned. Still, as out of sorts as Simon may have been, he was never more in tune with his audience: Still Crazy topped the charts, spawned four Top 40 hits, and won Grammys for Song of the Year and Best Vocal Performance.

    Bettye Lavette-born Betty Jo Haskins, from Detroit, Michigan-is easily one of the most
    important yet sometimes overlooked soul singer/songwriter of all time. She made her first
    record at the age of 16 in 1962 when she was signed by local Detroit record producer Johnnie
    Mae Matthews and recorded the single "My Man-He's A Lovin' Man," which became a Top
    Ten R&B hit after Atlantic Records bought distribution rights. Its success led to a tour with
    Clyde McPhatter, Ben E. King, Barbara Lynn and Otis Redding. She recorded the Wreich
    Holloway-written song, "Let Me Down Easy," on Calla Records in 1965 and became a chart
    hit (#48), leading to a brief stint with the James Brown Revue. After recording more singles
    for local Detroit labels, Lavette signed to Silver Fox in 1969 and recorded a handful of songs,
    including two Top 40 R&B Hits: "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" and "Do Your Duty," both
    produced by Lelan Rogers and featuring the Memphis studio musicians who later became
    known as the Dixie Flyers.


    In 1972, Bettye signed with Atlantic/Atco and was sent to the famed Muscle Shoals Sound
    Studios in Alabama to record a full-length album. Produced by Brad Shapiro and featuring
    the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the album was supposed to originally be titled as Child
    of the Seventies but Atco chose to shelve the project at the time. Years later, after Bettye
    played her own personal recordings of the sessions for French soul music collector, Gilles
    Petard, he chased down the master recordings at Atlantic Records where they were thought
    to have been destroyed in a fire. In 1999 after obtaining the masters, he licensed the material
    and released it on CD in 2000 as Souvenirs through his Art and Soul label (Rhino Handmade
    would later reissue Child of the Seventies on CD with previously unreleased 1973 tracks).
    The album helped to spark renewed interest in Lavette and in 2003, A Woman Like Me, was
    released and won the 2004 W.C Handy Award for "Comeback Blues Album of the Year."
    Lavette then signed to the Rosebud Agency and was brought to the attention of Andy Kaulkin
    at ANTI Records who signed her to a 3-album deal. The first project was produced by Joe
    Henry and featured an album of songs written entirely by women: I've Got My Own Hell To
    Raise was successful in helping to raise awareness of Bettye and was on many critics' Best of
    2005 lists. Since her release on ANTI, she has gone on to many accomplishments, including
    receiving a Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 2006, A Blues Music
    Award for Best Contemporary Female Blues Singer in 2008 and another Blues Music Award
    in 2016 for Soul Blues Female Artist of the Year.

    Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1993, Lowell Fulson (he also recorded for business reasons as Lowell Fullsom and Lowell Fulsom).

Along with T-Bone Walker, Fulson was one of the most important figures in West Coast blues. In a Heavy Bag is the original '69 Jewel Records album which has Lowell dishing out incredible, deep Muscle Shoals blues-funk!

    Home Is Where The Heart Is

    Import

    Bobby Womack's move to Columbia Records heralded a shift from the earthy deep Soul sensibility of his previous records to a slicker, more sophisticated approach in step with the changing sound of contemporary R&B.


    The transition not only proves seamless, but in fact Home Is Where the Heart Is (1976) may very well be Womack's most compelling LP in some time. Recorded in both Muscle Shoals and Los Angeles, its disparate parts fit together like a well-oiled machine.


    Womack's wonderfully gruff vocals adapt well to the warmth and elegance of songs like How Long, Something for My Head and One More Chance on Love and he performs with unprecedented passion and focus.

    Sirens Of The Ditch (Deluxe Edition)

    Featuring 4 Previously Unreleased Tracks From The Original Recording Sessions


    2x 180 Gram Vinyl


    Recorded At Fame Studios, Muscle Shoals, Al


    "a strong debut, full of the kind of confident, charismatic songwriting that just can't be taught." - Pitckfork


    "Isbell could be roots rock's Flannery O'Connor." - Spin


    The debut album from accomplished guitarist and songwriter Jason Isbell,
    formerly of Drive By Truckers (DBT), is reissued with 4 unreleased tracks
    from the original recording sessions. The addition of those 4 extra songs
    finds Sirens Of The Ditch clocking in at 15 total tracks.


    Sirens Of The Ditch's mystical quality can be partially attributed to the
    FAME recording studio (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding) in
    Isbell's hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL where the album was recorded.
    Co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood (DBT), Sirens Of The Ditch
    features Isbell singing lead vocals and playing guitar throughout, joined
    by Shonna Tucker (Formerly of DBT) on Bass and Brad Morgan (DBT)
    on drums. Several musicians pop in for cameos including Spooner Oldham
    and David Hood (Patterson's father) on "Down In A Hole", John Neff (Formerly

    Money and Cigarettes marked several important turning points in Eric Clapton's recording career: his debut release on his own Duck imprint; the first album he made after giving up drinking; and new players (with the exception of second guitarist Albert Lee) including Stax Records veteran bassist Donald Duck Dunn and Muscle Shoals drummer Roger Hawkins, also bringing in guest guitarist Ry Cooder.


    His new songs reflected on his changed condition, with Ain't Going Down, a thinly veiled musical rewrite of the Jimi Hendrix arrangement of All Along the Watchtower, serving as a statement of purpose that declared, I've still got something left to say. Other notable hits include The Shape You're In, the acoustic ballad Pretty Girl and covers of Sleepy John Estes' Everybody Oughta Make a Change (significantly placed as the album's leadoff track), Albert King's Crosscut Saw, and Johnny Otis' Crazy Country Hop.

    Heat Lightning Rumbles In The Distance (Awaiting Repress)

    The songs which comprise Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance were originally conceived as part of a novel written by Patterson Hood on the road while touring with the Drive-By Truckers. While the book eventually fell by the wayside, the songs kept coming.


    Featuring 12-new compositions from one of America's most talented songwriters and storytellers, the album is co-produced by Hood and longtime colloborator David Barbe. The album features appearances from quest vocalist Kelly Hogan, members of Drive-By Truckers, Centro-matic, and Patterson's father, the legendary Muscle Shoals bass player David Hood. 180g vinyl pressing with CD.

    Southern Blood

    SOUTHERN BLOOD serves as a remarkable final testament from an artist whose contributions have truly shaped rock & roll throughout the past four decades. This is Allman's first all-new recording since 2011's GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark, LOW COUNTRY BLUES.

    Produced by Don Was and recorded in Muscle Shoals where Duane Allman and the earliest seeds of the Allman Brothers Band were sown, Southern Blood is among the most uniquely personal of the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's career. This emotionally expansive collection of songs written by friends and favorite artists including Jackson Browne, Willie Dixon, Jerry Garcia & Robert Hunter, Lowell George and Spooner Oldham & Dan Penn serves as a salutary farewell to his legion of devoted fans and admirers.

    Mourning In The Morning

    For Mourning In The Morning, his 1969 album debut on Atlantic Records, southpaw blues guitar legend Otis Rush journeyed from his Chicago home to Fame Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabamaa burg best known for seminal soul platters. Backed by a horn-powered band that included a young Duane Allman on rhythm guitar, Otis slashing axe and anguished vocals glowed on the tortured Youre Killing My Love, remakes of his Cobra Records classics My Love Will Never Die and It Takes Time, and a stunning revival of B.B. Kings Gamblers Blues. Half the set consisted of new compositions from producers Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites, and Rushs mile-wide string bending on a shimmering instrumental version of Aretha Franklins Baby I Love You is utterly breathtaking.

    Goodnight Rhonda Lee (Awaiting Repress)

    Internationally acclaimed American musician Nicole Atkins is a rare artist whose timeless songwriting and raw, emotional voice spans the ages - a miasma of faded glamour and nostalgic pop noir. Goodnight Rhonda Lee, the 4th studio album from Nicole Atkins, was produced by the team at Niles City Sound (Leon Bridges) in Fort Worth, Texas and mixed by Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Co-writers on the record include Chris Isaak and Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds).

    Nicole was a guest star on Cameron Crowe's Showtime series "Roadies", where she debuted material from this record. Nicole debuted even more from the record at SXSW 2017 before a monumental crowd opening for country star Garth Brooks.

    I Learned The Hard Way

    Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are already well known as one of the most exciting acts in the nation for both their explosive live shows and their prolific output of gritty studio recordings. I Learned The Hardway is their fourth full-length release on Brooklyn's independent Daptone Records and it marks a bold step forward for a band who almost single handedly stewarded today's return of soul music to its more traditional sound.


    Produced by Bosco Mann and recorded on an Ampex eight-track tape machine by Gabriel Roth in Daptone Records' House of Soul studios, the record drips with a warmth and spontaneity rarely found since the golden days of Muscle Shoals and Stax. Sharon's raw power, rhythmic swagger, moaning soulfulness and melodic command set her fi rmly alongside Tina Turner, James Brown, Mavis Staples, and Aretha as a fi xture in the canon of soul music. From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in The Game Gets Old at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style Mama Don't Like My Man at the tail, the Dap-Kings groove seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. I Learned the Hard Way is the Daptone Sound at its fi nest.

    Like An Arrow

    The songs on Blackberry Smoke's sixth album, Like an Arrow, due October 14, show just how far this authentic American rock band has come as the accomplished group of musicians tackles a diverse set of new ideas, sounds, and territories, long after most bands with half the success might have settled into a well-worn groove.


    "We're all like-minded in that we all want to explore," singer and principal songwriter Charlie Starr said. "There's just no way we could make the same record over and over again, though there are some fans who would like us to. That's just way too formulaic. If the Beatles or Led Zeppelin did that, we wouldn't love them as much."


    Like An Arrow continues the trend of sonic exploration established on the Blackberry Smoke's previous two releases, 2012's The Whippoorwill and 2015's chart-topping Holding All the Roses. It kicks off with the band's heaviest song to date and explores British rock before moving on to musical stops in places like Macon, Woodstock, Muscle Shoals and Tulsa as Starr and his buddies follow the ramblin' examples of timeless, authentic acts like The Allman Brothers Band, JJ Cale, The Band and others who define rock 'n' roll in all its many facets.

    Turnpike Troubadours

    The Turnpike Troubadours, the eponymous fourth album from the red dirt country journeymen, careens into view slowly with The Bird Hunters, a melancholic waltz that recalls some of the sadder moments from its predecessor, 2012's Goodbye Normal Street. Much of that record underscored the dusty literary aspirations of lead singer/songwriter Evan Felker but, appropriately enough for an album named after the band as a whole, this record puts equal emphasis on head, heart, and muscle, easing between simple heartbroken laments and full-throated roars.


    Felker's voice and writing are plainspoken but not pedestrian; there's a soulful undercurrent to his simplicity, his modesty never seeming affected, his working-class anthems never showy. As subtle and lived-in as these songs are, what really makes The Turnpike Troubadours kick is the band itself. While they've never been restrained on record, this 2015 LP feels brawny and also sensitive, the band capable of leaning into the song so the rampaging minor-key stomp Doreen possesses a sad, menacing edge, The Mercury drowns out all sorrow, and Fall Out of Love plays like a balm straight out of Muscle Shoals. As always, the key to the success of the Turnpike Troubadours -- both as a band and in this album in particular -- is that they never draw attention to their depth and how they occupy a wide, woeful territory where laments heal and parties can feel reassuringly lonely.

    Dangerous Things

    Dan Layus is set to release his debut album, Dangerous Things, via Plated Records.


    Dangerous Things spans influences from Hank Williams to Tom Waits, from Dwight Yoakam to Woody Guthrie. The album was recorded in Nashville at SouthxSea Studios with minimal production. The lyrics are about life's struggles and its simple joys, and harmonies are provided by Muscle Shoals' own Secret Sisters.


    Primarily known as the frontman of the critically acclaimed band Augustana, Layus explains, "I always knew this album was out there waiting, I just had to let it come to me. That was the most challenging part of this record. It was three years of repeatedly realizing I was trying too hard to write a perfect song. It all started to make sense and feel good as soon as I stopped treating songwriting like it was songwriting. Somewhere along the way I decided that if an idea was going to turn into a song on this album, then it had to be written organically and purely. It had to be an inspired moment that was unfolding melodically, musically and lyrically, all while making me feel something. Subsequently, that's how I recorded the songs-I played the song live a few times in front of some microphones and when I felt something real happen, we moved onto the next one. The songs and recordings on this album are inspired by other people's stories and informed by my own experiences and I've never felt more proud or comfortable sharing an album as I feel with this one."

    Infinite Arms

    Originally released in 2010, Infinite Arms is the third full-length from the Low Country's premier rock 'n' roll outfit Band of Horses. Produced by Band of Horses with additional production from Phil Ek and mixed by Dave Sardy, the 12-tracks on Infinite Arms project the essence of the different locales across America that became the setting for the recording and songwriting process behind the album.


    The rich musical heritage of Muscle Shoals, AL, the sublime beauty of Asheville's Blue Ridge Mountains, the glamorous Hollywood Hills and the vast Mojave desert all influenced the sounds on Infinite Arms and helped yield the group's most focused and dynamic recordings to date. The serene woods of Northern Minnesota and the band's native Carolinas inspired the songwriting, lending the compositions an air of comfort and familiarity.


    Band of Horses is Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey and Bill Reynolds. Long-time touring members of the group, Infinite Arms marks the recording debut of Ramsey and Reynolds, while Barrett and Monroe graced the last album, Cease to Begin. Through touring together in support of Cease to Begin and during breaks in the Infinite Arms recording process, the band have become a cohesive force with all members making invaluable contributions to the unmistakable sound that founder Bridwell has crafted since the band's inception.
