    Doolittle

    Ranked 226/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    For the follow up to their classic 1988 debut Surfer Rosa, the Pixies brought in producer Gil Norton (Echo & The Bunnyment, Patty Smith, Foo Fighters) and the results were equally as brilliant if not superior to its predecessor. Doolittle boasted a cleaner sound and received excellent reviews, which led to greater exposure in America. Both a benchmark and a timeless monument, the album brazenly mixes
    surf-pop and grunge, with schizophrenic pacing and head banging jolts. Cited as one of the quintessential alternative rock albums of the '80s by Rolling Stone, Doolittle is undoubtedly one of the most epic and influential indie rock albums of all time. Highlights include Monkey Gone To Heaven, Wave Of Mutilation, Here Comes Your Man, Debaser and Hey among others.

    Radio Ethiopia

    Follow up album to Horses.


    In interviews surrounding the album's release, Smith explained that she chose producer Jack Douglas in hopes of making the album a commercial success.


    But the record turned out to be one of Patti Smith's most experimental pieces of music she has ever produced in her ingenious career.


    What this album does is, take the complexity and experimentation of the vocal poetry of Horses and infuses it into the sound.
    The record comes with a 4 page insert written by Mrs. smith herself.

    Horses

    Ranked 44/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Before recording the poetic proto-punk 1975 classic Horses, Patti Smith and her band honed the tunes in a triumphant run of shows at New York's iconic venue, CBGB. In the studio, producer John Cale then helped the band to further refine the songs in a process that brilliantly showcases their anarchic spirit and primitive beauty. Smith's background as a rock critic and poet is equally in evidence here as heard on the re-imaginings of such warhorses as Gloria and Land of 1000 Dances, where she boldly adds her own provocative and unflinching lyrics to great effect. Horses' influence on the burgeoning punk-rock movement is undeniable and it remains one of the finest debuts of all-time!

    Killer Road


    Double LP With Gatefold Sleeve And 16-Page Booklet


    LP 1 Is Black Vinyl, LP 2 Is White Colored Vinyl


    A shimmering ambient tone, an electronic underlay to the lulling chatter of
    crickets, makes way for the unmistakable voice of Patti Smith, quietly intoning,
    ominously, "The killer road is waiting for you / like a finger, pointing in the night."


    Behind the music and concept of Killer Road is international trio Soundwalk
    Collective - Stephan Crasneanscki, Simone Merli, and Kamran Sadeghi - who,
    alongside Patti Smith's daughter, Jesse Paris, conceived an immersive exploration
    of the tragic death of Christa PÄffgen. Better known as Nico, the Velvet
    Underground chanteuse and solo pioneer, PÄffgen died while riding her bike on
    the island of Ibiza in the summer of 1988. Ironically, she'd recently got her health
    back, after fifteen years of heroin addiction. It was Nico's body's reaction to its
    new sobriety, and the fact she was cycling at the hottest time of the day, on the
    hottest day of the year, that was to prove her undoing.


    In the years before she died, Nico had not neglected her creative muse, writing
    poetry that would never be published, or heard, until now, in the form of the
    opening title track, "Killer Road." The tracks that follow are eight interpretations
    of Nico lyrics, predominantly taken from classic albums such as Desertshore and
    Drama of Exile, arranged by fellow poet and kindred spirit Patti Smith.


    The roots of Killer Road lie in a fortuitous meeting on an airplane bound for New
    York. One passenger was Smith; the other was Soundwalk Collective founder
    Crasneanscki. Soundwalk had previously been a collaborative series of walking
    guides to cities that created an idiosyncratic and evocative understanding for the
    listener, before evolving into musical frameworks for field recordings and sight
    specific sound installations and performances using a variety of texts and themes.


    Killer Road was initially a live audio-visual experience, at the French Institute
    Alliance Francaise in New York as part of 2014's Crossing the Line festival. Finally,
    we now have the recorded version, a poignant, profound, imaginative exploration
    and tribute nearly 30 years after that fateful summer's day.

    Outside Society

    Punk rocks poet laureate, Patti Smith ranks among the most influential female rock & rollers of all time. Ambitious, unconventional and challenging, Smiths music was hailed as the most exciting fusion of rock and poetry since Bob Dylans heyday. Smith followed her own muse wherever it took her, from structured rock songs to freeform experimentalism. Her most avant-garde outings drew a sense of improvisation and interplay from free jazz, though they remained firmly rooted in noisy, primitive three chord rock & roll. She obliterated the expectations of what was possible for women in rock, and stretched the boundaries of how artists of any gender could express themselves.


    The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees first career-spanning collection, Outside Society, is a new collection of 18 signature songs remastered from all ten of Smiths studio albums. The chronologically arranged tracks move from her 1975 debut album, Horses (Gloria, Free Money), through her last release in 2007, Twelve (Smells Like Teen Spirit). Outside Society features brief recollections of each song, written by Patti, who personally supervised the song choices.

    Wave

    Available on vinyl for the first time since its original release!


    Wave turned out to be the last album the Patti Smith Group would record, as it was also last album Smith would record before a nine year hiatus.


    The Godmother Of Punk decided to focus on her family life and moved to Michigan, but not before leaving us with gems like the sexually mysterious 'Dancing Barefoot' (dedicated to her husband to be Fred 'Sonic' Smith) and her amazing, biting version of 'So You Want To Be (A Rock 'n' Roll Star)'. Produced by Todd Rundgren, this is her most pop-oriented album, and many at the time could not appreciate her more accessible sound. Nevertheless, 'Wave,' her spoken word tribute to Pope John Paul I (who reigned for only 33 days) is as touching and harrowing now as when it came out in 1979.

    Horses (Speakers Corner)

    Ranked 44/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Patti Smith, the first published poet to move her poetry completely into rock 'n' roll and to entice experimental rock fans into the forbidden cinema of her hallucinatory fantasy (New York Times), began her musical career unconventionally. It took off at a poetry reading where she was backed by Lenny Kaye on guitar; later star photographer Robert Mapplethorpe financed her punk-rock cult single Hey Joe. In 1975, encouraged by her success, Patti Smith released Horses, an album in which she fused rock riffs and spoken rhythms to create a punk-trash sound. The rock scene was electrified, raging about the best garage sound of the 70s (Creem Magazine) and conjectured that Smith had drawn up material from Rimbaud, Burroughs, Dylan and Velvet Underground into a hot needle and injected it under the skin (Sounds Magazine). Later productions were dismissed as sentimental and self-loving outpourings, since the rock-poet didn't continue in the same vein as Horses, with its metallic harshness and raw language. That's why this recording remains an impressive unique production by a visionary rock 'n' roll singer.



    Musicians:



    • Patti Smith (guitar, vocals)

    • Richard Sohl (piano)

    • Lenny Kaye (bass, guitar, vocal)

    • Tom Verlaine, Allen Lanier (guitar)

    • Ivan Kral (bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals)

    Recording: January 1975 at Electric Ladyland Studios, New York City, by Bernie Kirsh

    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.

    Iggy Pop continues to be known as one of the original pioneers of

    seventies. Thrilling audiences with The Stooges or with his own innovative
    solo projects, Iggy's iconic history shows a plethora of amazing albums

    of staple Iggy Pop classics like I'm A Conservative, Mr. Dynamite, Dog

    Liner notes written by Patti Smith


    For the length of time that Patti Smith has spent as a recording artist, she has a remarkably small catalogue: only ten albums recorded in over three decades.


    Yet small as it may be, she still stands as one of the most influential artists of her time.
    Despite the fact that she wears the moniker 'Godmother Of Punk' her oeuvre encompasses many styles and is impossible to fence into one genre.
    But perhaps we should interpret this badge of honour as a salute to her attitude rather than as a reference to her musical style.


    Outside Society, which will be released on vinyl at the same time as a general CD release, is a good presentation of her work as it chronologically explores the entirety of her career, from her first album Horses (MOVLP018) from 1975 to her last; Twelve from 2007, including hits such as 'Gloria', 'Because The Night', 'Dancing Barefoot' and her own intimate rendition of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'.
    It also gives you a good introduction to the artist as a person, as the liner notes are brief recollections of the recordings written by Smith herself.

    CBGB: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    WATCH OUT! PUNK IS COMING!


    By the end of 1973, New York City was bankrupt, Watergate had compromised the credibility of the U.S. government, and the Carpenters were the bestselling
    young recording act in America. Rock 'n' roll was dead!


    Enter Hilly Kristal, who dreamed of running a country & blues bar in the Bowery. Instead, the club he opened, CBGB (Country, Bluegrass, Blues) became
    the birthplace of punk and underground music. CBGB was the modern-day salon for the disenfranchised youth of New York City and Kristal gave these
    young local bands a stage. Artists such as the Talking Heads, Blondie, Patti Smith, Ramones, Dead Boys and Television all started at this iconic club.


    The story of Hilly Kristal and his legendary club will be coming to theaters this October when CBGB hits the big screen. The film has an all-star ensemble cast headed by Alan Rickman (the Harry Potter series, Die Hard) who plays Kristal. Co-starring with Rickman will be Malin Akerman (The Proposal,Suburgatory), Ryan Hurst (Sons Of Anarchy), Ashley Greene (The Twilight series), Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), Stana Katic (Castle) and
    Rupert Grint (the Harry Potter series).


    Omnivore Recordings is proud to present CBGB: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on CD and naturally, double-LP (with first pressing on translucent
    pink vinyl). An essential collection of songs that made the punk movement, CBGB presents twenty slices of original American music, many rarely
    compiled or unavailable for years. The soundtrack contains music from influential artists that informed the scene (The Velvet Underground, The Stooges
    and MC5), to acts that broke through with huge commercial acclaim (Talking Heads, Blondie and The Police). And there's even music from bands whose
    legendary status will forever be linked to the club that gave them a voice (Dead Boys, Television. Wayne County, The Dictators and more).

    Helen of Troy

    To his chagrin, John Cale's record label released his unfinished demo tapes while he was busy producing Patti Smith's groundbreaking Horses. But to his surprise, the resulting album, Helen of Troy, is considered the most stylistically cohesive of the eclectic Island Trilogy, the trio of albums Cale recorded for Island Records during the course of 1974-75. Featuring Brian Eno's lithe synthesizer, Phil Collins' expert drumming, and Cale's manic streetwise songwriting, Helen of Troy delivers more sophistication than most final cuts, and cuts deeper in its roughness.


    Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Helen of Troy is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's engaging fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the moody content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.


    From the celestial opening strains of My Maria, which sounds in places like a hymn, to the teeth-gnashing Sudden Death, Cale shows us heaven, hell, and the life in between. Employing a cocktail of wild experimentation, tonal versatility, and range of emotion, Cale's compositions whip from soaring serenades like I Keep a Close Watch to the unhinged, wild-eyed Leaving It Up to You (pulled from the original release due to its reference to the murder of Sharon Tate) to the soulful, surf-derived China Sea. Eno's synthesizer casts love spells and shadows while Chris Spedding's guitar drills bluesy, ragged holes through every composition. A tormented, sinister cover of the Modern Lovers' Pablo Picasso (Cale produced the Lovers' debut) shows what you get when you replace Jonathan Richman's dreamy smile with Cale's bared teeth.


    Although we'll never know what the one-time Velvet Underground cohort had in mind for the finished product, with its labyrinthine arrangements, theatrical spontaneity, and primal rawness, Helen of Troy is a gem that's better unpolished.

    West Of Memphis: Voices For Justice

    The avalanche of emotions experienced after seeing the highly regarded documentary West Of Memphis quickly leads to perhaps the most primal impulse of all: "Act. Do something. Do anything." It's in this spirit that West of Memphis: Voices For Justice has been created. In every instance, the artists involved have made the decision about which song they felt reected their personal feelings about the case of the West Memphis 3. There's a connection between the music and the man remaining at its center, Damien Echols. This compilation features music from Eddie Vedder, Natalie Maines, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith and more.

    Agents of Fortune

    'I've got a fever, and the only medicine is MORE COWBELL ' Decades before Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell's hilarious ode to "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" on Saturday Night Live, Agents Of Fortune already obtained classic Rock status.


    The hit song is just one of the wonderful tunes on Blue Öyster Cult's fifth album from 1976. The band called in the help of Patti Smith on "The Revenge Of Vera Gemini", and delivered a high charting album (#29 on the Billboard 200 and "The Reaper" made it to the twelfth spot on the singles Charts).


    This record rocks 'n thunders, with a sensual boogie
    permeating these 10 great tracks.

    Anna Calvi

    This is the stunning debut of guitarist and vocalist Anna Calvi. Brian Eno has championed her as the most visionary female artist since Patti Smith, Nick Cave has just taken her and her band on tour in Europe with Grinderman and Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey's right hand studio man) has produced the album with her. Her playing is inspired by Django Rheinhart as much as Jimi Hendrix and her singing style is Nina Simone with a bit Maria Callas- her sound is a passionate and incredibly original mix.

    Wild And Foolish Heart

    Suzanne Langille started her recording career as a vocalist alongside Loren Mazzacane Connors on a string of rare LPs in the mid-'80s acclaimed for their startling transformation of the blues. Since, Langille has added vocals and lyrics to many of Connors albums, including the landmark Hell's Kitchen Park, collaborated with San Agustin and issued a conceptual full-length on Secretly Canadian in 1998. But all along a proper solo album has never surfaced until now.



    Wild & Foolish Heart joins Langille with Indian classical musician Neel Murgai, a long-time collaborator and leader of his own ensemble. Langille's blues-filled moans are perfectly matched to the dazzling drone and subtle melodic rhythm of Murgai's tanpura and daf (Persian frame drum). Their reworking of popular/traditional songs and Langille's own dramatic compositions draw out redemption, sorrow and celebration in a way that makes listening to these sides feel like uncovering a lost field recording of otherworldly haunts or spirituals. Langille's pervading melancholic tone flares in the tradition of Patti Smith and Thalia Zedek at times. The LP ends with a scorching blowout from the Haunted House band, the legendary/defunct downtown 'blues rock' improv-combo fronted by Langille, with Murgai, Connors and San Augstin guitarist Andrew Burnes.



    This 550-edition LP features cover art from Loren Connors, a selection of his rarely seen photography/collage work, and is pressed in an edition of 550 copies.

    AUDITORY ADVENTURE for the speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees, and misfits...Made by
    Foxygen at Dream Star Studios in their Secret Haunted House with the UFOs flying around in the sky.


    A gaggle of guest stars. Roman-numeraled musical suites.Vocals recorded on a shoddy tape machine at The
    Beverly Hills Hotel and Chateau Marmont. A svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon

    skullkrush music. ADHD star power underground revolution. Soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and
    paranoid bathroom rompers. Process is the point. A kaleidoscoping view. Blasphemy even the gods smile
    one. Rock and roll for the skull...*

    City Music

    City Music is an airplane descending over frozen lakes into Chicago. City Music is riding the Q Train out to Coney Island to smell the ocean and a morning in Philadelphia where great cranes reconfigure the buildings like an endless puzzle. City Music is also the new album by Kevin Morby.


    Full of listless wanderlust, it's a collection inspired by and devoted to the metropolitan experience across America and beyond by a songwriter cast from his own mold. It is a collection crafted using the other side of its creator's brain, the jumping off point perhaps best once again encapsulated by an image. Here, Lou Reed and Patti Smith stare out at the listener, explains Morby.


    City Music sees Morby joined once again by cohorts Megan Duffy (guitar) and Justin Sullivan (drums). Here the vocals were recorded at night, in darkness, overlooking a Pacific Ocean illuminated only by the stars, the wash and whisper of the ebbing tidal a distant soundtrack. The record was completed with Richard Swift in Oregon (producer of Foxygen, sometime member of The Black Keys). Here the album gives voice to all those cities speaking the same universal language of chaos and commerce and culture.

    Too True

    In the summer of 2012, between tours supporting End of Daze, I
    locked out the world and sat down in my apartment to write a new record
    - clear view of the New York City sky through iron bars like a promise.
    Like all compulsive minds, I was waiting to let the muse loose. And so
    I spent the next week in a sparkling haze, and when I emerged from the
    frenzy to go back on tour, indeed ten new songs came with. They were
    bound together, not just by an overall sonic palette and new guitar pedal,
    but by time, intention, and fervor. Do you hear Suede? Siouxie? Cold-wave
    Patti? Madonna? Cure? Velvet and Paisley Undergrounds? Stone Roses?
    Cuz I did.


    Still later, in November 2012, I returned to Hollywood to record among
    the lingering Pet Sounds at East West Studios, in pursuit of a bigger,
    darker, more urgent sound. Sitting in the room with my favorite team of
    regulars (Richard Gottehrer and Sune Rose Wagner producing, Alonzo
    Vargas engineering), it was easy to add some flesh to my song skeletons.
    But, unfortunately, the previous year of touring had reduced my voice
    to a pale spectre of its former self. I left California with the heavy burden
    of an unfinished album.


    Truly one of those disguised blessings though - the extra time was a
    gift. These songs weren't done at all! So I recorded vocals alone in my
    bedroom studio, fueled by Rainer Maria Rilke, Anais Nin, Arthur Rimbaud,
    Paul Verlaine, Charles Baudelaire, Sylvia Plath; the punk poet singers
    Patti Smith and Lou Reed; and finally, an unhealthy obsession with the
    Surrealists' manifesto of desire.


    I write this now, many months later, on the up. So much of my life has
    been defined, aided, and even saved by music. Too True is my best
    attempt at joining the rock'n'roll ranks, of chasing pop into the dark,
    and I am as ever, humbled that you listen.

    Hot Wax

    White/blue swirled vinyl!


    Grant Hart's first solo album of the 21st century is one of the best things he has ever done. The former Husker Du drummer and co-songwriter worked with the diverse cast of musicians from Godspeed You Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion on this new LP, Hot Wax, recorded in Montreal and Minneapolis. Grant on some of the some of the songs: the song Narcissus, Narcissus is my first attempt at combining ancient Greek mythology and American rock-a-billy. By merging those influences with an ice cream truck atmosphere I think I have found a style that defines this period of my career. You're the Reflection of the Moon on the Water is one of the most organic rock and roll songs that I have ever written. It's style owes a lot to my devotion for patti smith. It was inspired by a comment made by a monk during the selection process to find the next Panchen Lhama, who said of one candidate, he is the reflection of the moon on the water but he is not the moon.

    Burials

    Multiplatinum alt-rock band AFI release their highly anticipated new album Burials.


    Rolling Stone described the albums first single I Hope You Suffer as an epic song, layering [lead vocalist Davey] Havok's anguished cries within a lightning storm of distortion, synthetic orchestrations, and volcanic percussion.


    AFI perform and preview new songs from Burials during their North American tour, which kicks off September 12th, 2013 in Minneapolis.


    Burials is AFI's ninth full-length studio album and first for Republic Records. The Cali-based band recorded the album with producer Gil Norton (Pixies,
    Patti Smith, Foo Fighters) at East West Studios in Los Angeles. The record was mixed by Andrew Scheps (Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers).


    In other news, a remix of the first single 17 Crimes will serve as the end title track to the film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
    Since the release of 1995's debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI have written and recorded five top ten hit singles (Miss Murder,
    Medicate, Love Like Winter, Silver and Gold, Girl's Not Grey), hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered
    critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal international following whose members number in the millions.

    Comfort Of Strangers

    Few vocalists equal the expressive subtlety of Beth Orton, whose fourth album is both her most musically spare and artistically complex to date. Not only does the production and backing by Jim O'Rourke (known for his work with Sonic Youth and Wilco) capture Orton's vocal style at its most unstudied and unvarnished, the lack of embellishment focuses all the more attention on her songwriting. From the jazzy phrasing on the deceptively jaunty Worms through the haunting Feral and the amazing grace of the closing, hymnlike Pieces of Sky, Orton's songs give voice to the sort of knotty, prickly emotions that are as hard to define as they are deeply felt. Most of the musical dynamic features piano or guitar over an elemental, insistent rhythm section, making the coloring of an occasional string section (Conceived), harmonica (Absinthe), or accordion (Safe in Your Arms) all the more striking. As an indication of the emotional range of this musical minimalism, the title cut is soothing enough to please fans of Norah Jones, while Heartlandstruckstop is as edgy as Patti Smith. -Don McLeese
