    Forever (Box Set)


    Limited Edition 4 LP Box Set


    Includes Additional Bonus 12" Single Of William Orbit Mix Of "Let Me In Your Heart Again"


    Having in the three months since its original release already provided Queen with their twenty fifth top ten album and twenty sixth UK gold album, Queen's current best selling compilation package Queen Forever is to receive a special limited edition vinyl release coming this spring.


    The original 36 track 2 CD Queen Forever release will now be made available as a strictly limited 4 LP vinyl box set which includes an additional 12" single bonus disc exclusive to the set featuring a special William Orbit mix of the only recently heard Freddie Mercury track "Let Me In Your Heart Again".


    The Orbit mix was held back from the Forever CD release and only surfaced for a limited period to support the Coca-Cola (RED) AIDS awareness campaign mounted at the tail end of last year.


    The B side of the 12" single has a further bonus feature exclusive to this box set - a laser etching of the box set cover illustration.


    Distinguishing itself as the first Queen album to feature new Freddie Mercury led tracks since the band's 1995 Made In Heaven album, Queen Forever brings out into the light the long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson, 'There Must Be More to Life Than This', an unfinished Mercury-Queen track 'Let Me In Your Heart Again' originating from the band's The Works album recording sessions (featured on this vinyl package in a newly available William Orbit mix) and a new ballad version of Mercury's first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, 'Love Kills', which is currently being heavily played at UK and European radio.


    The rest of the package mixes Queen hits, classic tracks and celebrates the extraordinary musical path of one of the world's greatest rock bands. Reaching back as far as 1974 with fan favourite Nevermore, a Freddie Mercury song originally included on Queen II, Queen Forever progresses to feature songs that spotlight the band's songwriting prowess, studio experimentation and remarkable development, and is completed with latter-day Queen hits, including '91's no. 1 These Are The Days Of Our Lives and '95's Too Much Love Will Kill You, together with the poignant A Winter's Tale, recorded during Freddie Mercury's final Queen recording sessions in Montreux in 1991.


    Queen Forever is a thrilling showcase for exclusive new Queen recordings but equally as much a paean to the extraordinary musical achievements of John Deacon, Brian May, Roger Taylor and the late Freddie Mercury, whose singular talent we again get to marvel at through this meticulously presented 36 track collection.

    Highway Queen

    Nikki Lane's remarkably dazzling third album,
    Highway Queen, sees the
    young Nashville rebel emerge as one of country and
    rock's most gifted songwriters. Produced by Lane
    and fellow singer-songwriter Jonathan Tyler, and
    recorded in Denton, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee,
    Highway Queen is an emotional tour-de-force.
    Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and
    vintage Sixties country-pop swagger, Lane's new music
    will resonate as easily with Black Keys and Lana
    Del Rey fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty.


    Highway Queen starts with the whiskey-soaked
    restlessness of "700,000 Rednecks," a rowdy call to
    action, and ends on the profoundly raw "Forever
    Lasts Forever," where Lane belts freely, mourning
    a failed marriage - the "lighter shade of skin" left
    behind from her wedding ring. Lane's journey to
    heartbreak takes exquisite turns. "Companion" is
    pure Everly Brothers' dreaminess ("I would spend a
    lifetime/ Playing catch you if I can"). Elsewhere, she
    goes on a Vegas bender on the rollicking "Jackpot,"
    fights last-call blues ("Foolish Heart") and tosses
    off brazen one-liners at a backroom piano ("Big
    Mouth").


    Lane, a Greenville, South Carolina native, is a unique
    songwriter who didn't take the traditional country
    artist path. Her backwoods roots are undercut by
    her chosen career as a fashion entrepreneur (she's
    the owner of vintage clothing boutique High Class
    Hillbilly) who has lived - and been heartbroken
    in - Los Angeles, New York and Nashville. So it's no
    surprise that her music seamlessly crosses musical
    genres with lyrics steeped in the doomed perseverance
    only a true dark horse romantic knows.


    Lane's rapid rise in music is thanks to the fervent critical
    acclaim of her debut record Walk of Shame
    and 2014's Dan Auerbach-produced All Or
    Nothin'. With Highway Queen, 2017 is poised
    to be Lane's major mainstream breakthrough. So as
    she sings on the title track: place your bets, if you
    ain't folding.

    Primarily functioning as the musical backdrop for the movie Highlander, Queen's 1986 release A Kind of Magic differs from their other motion picture soundtrack, 1980's Flash Gordon in that it features all fully realized songs and doesn't contain a single instrumental. Songs like the epic title track, Friends Will Be Friends and Who Wants To Live Forever helped Queen once again attain rock prominence around the world.

    Aretha's Gold


    The Aretha Franklin/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Begins!


    Celebrate 4 Decades Of The Queen Of Soul's Greatest Hits!


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl - #1 R&B Album In 1969!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes


    Aretha Franklin will be forever known as The Queen Of Soul and one of the original classic soul pioneers like Ray
    Charles, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett who had a knack of mastering funk grooves drenched in gospel, soul, rock
    and pop.


    Aretha Franklin created some of the greatest sides ever for Atlantic, where she spent almost two decades creating
    some of the most masterful and beautiful soul music ever waxed.


    In 1969, Aretha was honored with her first greatest hits collection by our good friends at Atlantic Records simply
    titled Aretha's Gold. This stunning array of her biggest #1's and other smash hit singles, most of them featuring Duane
    Allman, Arif Mardin, Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, Roger Hawkins, Spooner Oldham and Jimmy Johnson, dominated the top
    of the soul and pop charts for over a year. Her songs and soulful delivery on these hits truly illustrate how important her
    force was then and still is today, over four decades since!


    Aretha was important in bridging all types of rhythm and blues music to a much wider audience, churning out not
    only soul smashes but pop masterpieces. Most of her biggest hits have been covered by many artists over the years as
    well. Jam packed with the original Atlantic recordings of solid senders like her classics Chain of Fools, See Saw, Baby, I
    Love You and of course Respect, Aretha's Gold is virtually an encyclopedia of SOUL!


    Even more soul and pop classics abound as you'll hear her scream and shout with the best of the blues with Dr.
    Feelgood, one of her most beautiful ballads with (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, and her soulful touch on Burt
    Bacharach's classic I Say a Little Prayer. This #1 charting 1969 LP hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades...
    that is until now!


    Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of
    Aretha's Gold. Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol
    Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain. We have also
    included the original artwork elements by Haig Adishian, the classic photo of Aretha Franklin by James J. Kreigsman, as
    well as the original back cover studio session photo collage not seen in LP cover form in years!


    The soul lives on here at the Friday Music label, and as with our recent original pioneering soul albums from Ray
    Charles, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett and others, we feel this stunning Aretha Franklin 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl will
    be a much anticipated and welcomed release to all the soul, funk and rock audiophile vinyl fans. R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

    Traffic

    Mastered from the Original Island Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray


    Traffic were one of the premier architects of the acid rock movement in the '60s and blossomed further into one of the most important super groups of the '70s. Their recordings are the soundtrack to a generation of music enthusiasts that continues to this day and will forever stand the test of time. In 1968, the legendary founding members Stevie Winwood, Dave Mason, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood sojourned on after a smash debut with Dear Mr. Fantasy and continued the winning streak with the groundbreaking self-titled classic Traffic.


    Known for their superior progressive rock, jazz and pop influences, the multi-faceted music of this LP offers non-stop entertainment which truly illustrates the legendary talent of this English quartet. Whether standout tracks from the pens of Dave Mason like the classic rock smash anthem Feelin' Alright? or the prog-rock masterpiece Winwood and Capaldi's classic Forty Thousand Headmen, the Traffic album has surely earned its currency over the years as one of the more important albums of the classic rock era.


    Filled with the piano driven melodies and vocals of the legendary Stevie Winwood, the hard rocking vocals and guitar work of the masterful Dave Mason, the explosive sax breaks by the late Chris Wood and the power drumming and vocals of the late great Jim Capaldi, the Traffic album will always be one of the most revered albums in their extraordinary career.


    Even further classics ensued with each of the hard rockin' ten tracks that make up this masterwork. How about the smash sounds of Pearly Queen or another Winwood and Capaldi classic Means To An End, plus more Dave Mason treasures like You Can All Join In or Don't Be Sad. No matter what track is your favorite, it's all classic Traffic, and it just doesn't get much better than this.


    Friday Music continues with their second installment in the Traffic/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with the monumental rock classic Traffic. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso from the original Island Records tapes at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, Traffic is a truly one of the most important audiophile vinyl releases of 2012.


    Friday is also including a very rare gatefold cover, which includes the original gatefold photo of Dave Mason, Stevie Winwood, Chris Wood and Jim Capaldi, for the first time in North America since its 1968 release!

    The Best Of Mountain

    The Legendary Greatest Hits ..First Time On Audiophile Vinyl!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios.


    Manufactured By R.T.I.


    In 1973, the good folks at Windfall and Columbia Records compiled
    an amazing overview of Mountain's most memorable and fan driven
    favorites simply titled The Best Of Mountain. This collection featured the
    brilliant lead vocals and dangerous guitar work of Leslie West, the sorely
    missed bass guitar, lead vocals and production of Felix Pappalardi (Cream),
    the driving keyboards of Steve Knight and the heavy metal drums of Corky
    Laing.


    This mammoth collection had something for every one of its devoted
    fans as it culled tracks not only from the band's output on Windfall like their
    earth shattering smashes Mississippi Queen and Nantucket Sleighride, but
    it also included the rare LP edit version of Roll Over Beethoven. Therefore,
    a good majority of the hits and definitive Mountain tracks are included on
    this career overview of songs which will forever stand the test of heavy metal
    time.


    Their most familiar songs from Climbing!, Flowers Of Evil and
    Nantucket Sleighride are featured with hard rockers like Never In My Life,
    Don't Look Around and Crossroader. Plus even more Mountain classics are
    included like Tanuta, The Animal Trainer And The Toad and The Boys In The
    Band.


    The hard rocking progressive sound of Mountain is also highlighted
    with massive hits like their definitive interpretation of Jack Bruce & Pete
    Brown's Theme For An Imaginary Western and their stellar tribute to the
    Woodstock nation with the legendary For Yasgur's Farm.


    The music of Mountain has made them one of the most loved bands
    of all time. Even to this day, their concerts are important events worldwide,
    their albums and songs are of legendary proportion, and the undying energy
    between each of its individual members is second to no one.

    Freddie Mercury: Messenger Of The Gods - The Singles (Box Set)

    Box Set Features 13 x 7" Singles On Colored Vinyl


    Includes Booklet Featuring Previously Unpublished Photos


    Freddie Mercury was a man of many talents and many different sides. The songs he wrote for and with Queen filled stadiums around the globe and have rightly gone down in history, but he also embarked on a solo career that took him from the clubs of Munich and New York to the great opera houses of the world.


    He was the ultimate showman, but he kept his private life away from the prying eyes of the media; a larger than life rock star who loved disco, classical music and ballet. He was a restless spirit, a true chameleon who reveled in his own contradictions.


    All the different sides of this iconic musician can be found on Freddie Mercury: Messenger Of The Gods - The Singles. Fittingly released on Mercury Records for the world outside North America, and on Hollywood Records in North America, this box set brings together all 13 of Freddie's solo singles on individually coloured vinyl.


    From his debut solo single I Can Hear Music, released under the name Larry Lurex, through the dance floor-influenced solo anthems of the 80s and up to his collaborations with legendary Spanish opera singer Montserrat CaballÉ including the timeless Barcelona, this is a journey through the career of a unique talent.


    Born Farrokh Bulsara on the East African island of Zanzibar on September 5, 1946, the rechristened Freddie Mercury was already a star in his own mind by the time he formed Queen with Brian May and Roger Taylor in 1970. Where his band mates had studied astrophysics, dentistry and electronics at college, Freddie majored in stardom.


    His first solo single actually emerged a week before Queen's own debut 7". Released in 1973 and credited to Larry Lurex in a nod to the fashionably flamboyant noms de rock of the glam era, the Beach Boys cover I Can Hear Music and its B-side, Goin' Back, were recorded as a favour towards a musical project by Trident Studios' house engineer Robin Geoffrey Cable, in 1972.


    As Queen's career rocketed towards the heavens, Freddie poured his energies into the band. It would be more than a decade before he released his second solo single, the pulsating, electronic Love Kills. Originally released in 1984, Love Kills was a collaboration with famed Italian disco producer Giorgio Moroder for the soundtrack to Moroder's update of the groundbreaking 1927 silent movie Metropolis. A Top 10 UK hit, it found Freddie moving away from Queen's traditional sound, paving the way for what he would do next.


    Released in 1985, Freddie's debut solo album, Mr Bad Guy, fully explored the music he had fallen in love with in the dance clubs of Munich and New York. The four hit singles released from that album - I Was Born To Love You, Made In Heaven, Living On My Own and Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow, all of which are included in the Messenger Of The Gods box set - crackled with playfully hedonistic energy, but they also hid a more serious side to Freddie. Here was a man who craved the good times but wanted something deeper as well.


    Within two years, he had abandoned the sound of the clubs for the music of the opera house - though not before releasing both the epic single Time, the theme to the lavish stage musical of the same name produced by Dave Clark, and his outrageous (and strangely revealing) Top 5 cover of The Platters' 1965 hit, The Great Pretender.


    In 1987, he dived headlong into the world of opera and classical music with the towering single, Barcelona. A duet with legendary Spanish soprano Montserrat CaballÉ, an idol of Freddie's, it came about after the opera star asked him to write a song about her home town.


    Barcelona remains one of the most momentous hit singles not just of Freddie's career but in pop history. Not only did it lead to an album of collaborations between these two huge talents, but the title track was also chosen as the official anthem of the 1992 Olympics. That song, together with the two other singles taken from the album, The Golden Boy and How Can I Go On, are all included as part of Messenger Of The Gods with their original B-sides.


    In October 1988 Freddie and Montserrat were invited by the King and Queen of Spain to perform Barcelona on the steps of Barcelona's National Palace of Montjuic at the open air La Nit festival which was staged to mark the arrival of the Olympic Flag from Seoul.


    But sadly, Freddie would not live to see the fruits of his collaboration with Montserrat CaballÉ showcased at the Barcelona Olympics. He passed away on November 24, 1991, just seven months before the Games took place. The grand opening ceremony was a fitting tribute to a man who thrived on spectacle.


    Messenger Of The Gods is completed by two posthumous singles, In My Defence and Living On My Own (No More Brothers Radio Mix), the latter of which became Freddie's first solo number 1 and was the biggest selling European single of the year in 1993.


    Had he lived, it is anyone's guess where this most restless and protean of singer's muses would have taken him. But Messenger Of The Gods - The Singles is a towering legacy, a collection of songs which will never lose their stature of classics and will live on forever.

    Highway 61 Revisited

    Highway 61 Revisited on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Dylan's First Entirely Rock-Backed Album Marks Sea Change in Sound and Potential of Popular Music


    Ranked #4 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List


    Album-Opening Like a Rolling Stone Challenging, Bold, Revolutionary-And Arguably the Best Rock Song Ever Recorded


    Widescreen Sonics: Brilliant Collision of Evocative Poetry, Swirling Roots-Based Soul, and Hard-Driving Blues Sounds Incredible on MoFi 45RPM Pressing


    1965 Set Also Includes Ballad of a Thin Man, Desolation Row, and Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues


    Its title references the road that spans North Minnesota to the Mississippi Delta, and the formative blues, country, and roots sounds connected to its existence. The highway also lays claim to towering musical myths and deaths, many tied to the blues lexicon and narrative. All figure prominently on the revolutionary beacon that is Highway 61 Revisited, the 1965 set that overturned rules, upended preexisting limits, and utterly changed everything in its path. Ranked the fourth-greatest album ever made by Rolling Stone, its reach, power, and content boggle the mind nearly five decades after its release.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI, this restored 45RPM analog version presents the life-altering music in reference-quality sound-so much so that the record's famous first lightning-strike note is now indeed the "snare shot that sound[s] like somebody'd kicked open the door to your mind," as once described by Bruce Springsteen.


    Teeming with organic energy, palpable voltage, and countless textures, the LP faithfully recreates the dimensions, vibes, and events associated with the six days Dylan and Co. spent at Columbia's Studio A. Everything from the soundstages to dynamics, instrumental separation to balances, resonates with enormous might and insightful perspective. Wider grooves mean more information reaches your ears.


    Recorded amidst a time of unfathomable turmoil and frustration that witnessed Dylan booed by fans, labeled a traitor, and call into question his work, Highway 61 Revisited roars and snarls, jabs and criticizes. Its bonfire of cynicism, fury, indignation, and absurdity forever transformed rock, what it could mean, and what it could do. Supported by a thundering, commanding band that included guitarist Mike Bloomfield and organist Al Kooper, Dylan hopscotches between tempos, moods, and melodies. The symmetry of the songs references a scattered hybrid of R&B, blues, folk, soul, gospel, vaudeville, and garage rock pieces that Dylan assembles in the shape of a brilliant, mind-teasing aural puzzle.


    Outside of "Like a Rolling Stone"-the six-minute-plus anthem that both challenged and chewed up all preconceived notions of an acceptable radio single by way of its length, ambition, and vitriol-every tune was captured shortly after Dylan's contentious performance at the Newport Folk Festival. The lingering impact of the hostility comes through in both the searing music and rich, literate, zinging poetry. Dylan's sneering tones, raucous arrangements, and unmistakable resentment toward both the establishment and counterculture that adopted him, and assume the form of songs such as "Ballad of a Thin Man," "Queen Jane Approximately," "Tombstone Blues," and the stupefying "Desolation Row."


    At its core, Highway 61 Revisited is about experience, reality, and the cruelties and truths that lie outside soporific safety nets and bourgeois ideals. These reasons-and the bold musicianship, ace performances, inimitable sonics, and vast lyrical expanses-are why the album means as much today as it did in the mid-1960s. Akin to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Dark Side of the Moon, this is an album that everyone needs to own and hear in the best-possible fidelity.

    Ultima II Massage

    TOBACCO can't have nice things.


    On his third album, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer deepens his approach
    to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage widens a jagged swath through the dude's
    own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of contributing to
    some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state. "I spent a lot of time
    breaking it in all the right places," says TOBACCO. "It ends up making the whole
    thing breathe - sometimes gasp for air. It feels more alive." Immediately after
    nishing 2010's Maniac Meat, he went to work on the beat-addled series begun
    with Fucked Up Friends in 2008. There were notable breaks en route to now - a
    surprising commission to remix White Zombie's "Thunder Kiss '65," a new BMSR
    record (Cobra Juicy), and producing Demon Queen's Exorcise Tape with vocalist
    Zackey Force Funk - but he saved the worst for last, amassing the most
    misanthropic material for Ultima. To wit, SPIN dubbed early share "Lipstick
    Destroyer" a "junkyard takedown of Daft Punk's beloved, pristine electro."
    TOBACCO explains his modied approach: "I wanted to push each song just
    enough, so that even when the album's at its wildest, it's something you can zone
    out to. It feels like a denitive end to a concept I've been trying to perfect forever.
    Maniac Meat was linear. This time I wanted to do a lot of di!erent things and have
    them come together as one meditative piece. At least for myself."


    Which, oddly enough, makes sense. This is easily TOBACCO's most diverse set to
    date - his own Stereopathetic Soulmanure, but about that 1-900 hotline life:
    massage parlors, plasticized sleaze, fake tans, old dial-ups to the fan clubs of
    dead B-actors. Fittingly, the album's only contributor is Beck music director Brian
    LeBarton who shrieks as Notrabel on the grimy freak-out "Streaker." At 17 tracks,
    Ultima is stacked with beautifully perverse hits - from the sickly sticky "Eruption,"
    to the wobbly demon swaggerer "Face Breakout," to the distorted punk spazz of
    "Dipsmack," to the apocalyptic sepia ambience of "Spitlord." You may hear
    disembodied bits of Boards of Canada, early Def Jam records, and Gary Numan,
    or maybe just public-access TV and bad VHS dubs of '80s horror icks. Or the sun
    exploding and everything you've ever loved melting. Again, TOBACCO was just
    trying to make meditation music.


    But to nd that rotted sweet spot, as always, he had to subvert his pop urges.
    TOBACCO went back to the cassette decks he started o! with - analog weapons
    of distortion to compliment his hissing vocoder and blown rhythms. Any moment
    that felt "just right" was brutally assaulted until ugly again. All to accomplish one
    end: "This might be my most purposely difcult album yet, but I promise if you let
    it in, it can fuck you up."


    Ultima II Massage. No happy ending.

    The Commandments According To SCAC

    In 2016, Slim Cessna's Auto Club is releasing its new album The Commandments According to SCAC. It has been twenty-four years since Slim Cessna parted ways with The Denver Gentlemen, that grand progenitor of the peculiar strain of Gothic Americana unique to the Mile High City, to form Slim Cessna's Auto Club with a group of talented peers. Many bands with a long and successful run like that would stick close to its roots. But rather than rest on well-earned laurels, the Auto Club challenged itself to break with well worn modes of operating for the new record.


    Wallace Stenger may have captured the spirit of the west in his 1971 novel Angle of Repose. Jim Thompson surely exposed the lurid underbelly of the Western experience. Cormac McCarthy definitely evoked the conflicted, tortured spirit of small town life on the frontier. William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor informed all of them with a humor and soulfulness. It is that literary tradition that imbues the harrowing and celebratory sound and riveting stories of Slim Cessna's Auto Club. And for a full twenty years it was largely in that realm of art that the Auto Club reveled and garnered a loyal cult following well beyond the boundaries of The Queen City of the Plains.


    But no band can be satisfied with treading the same territory that it helped to define forever. The Commandments According to SCAC, will be the first full length album of original material released on the Auto Club's own imprint, SCACUNINCORPORATED. The title evokes the themes of cosmic punishment and redemption that have served the band's songwriting engine so well in the past. But this set of songs sounds more hopeful and expansive, a quality that was always there but this time out the brighter sides of the songwriting are emphasized. Hints of this saw early full-flown expression on 2008's Cipher and Unentitled from 2011. With The Commandments, however, the Auto Club seems to step forward into the promise of its own possibilities. It remains capable of the heady darkness and celebratory intensity with which it made its name. Now that charmingly dusky and spare sound breathes with a color and delicacy of feeling that perhaps sat in the background in times past. Maybe it's partly due to the greater creative contributions from longtime collaborator Rebecca Vera and The Peeler or the inclusion of upright bass player Ian O'Dougherty. But the core of the band's songwriting and sound is anchored firmly in the vision of Slim, Munly Munly and Lord Dwight Pentacost.


    Whatever the true source of this transformation, The Commandments According to SCAC sounds like a band marshalling its creative inspiration to mark out a new chapter of its existence. When you get to see the Auto Club tour following the album's release, you'll get to see an already mighty band reinvigorated by this new spirit as well as by the fire that has long burned in its collective belly.

    Highway 61 Revisited (Mono) (Out Of Stock)

    Highway 61 Revisited on Numbered Limited Edition Mono 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Dylan's First Entirely Rock-Backed Album Marks Sea Change in Sound and Potential of Popular Music


    Ranked #4 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List


    Album-Opening Like a Rolling Stone Challenging, Bold, Revolutionary-And Arguably the Best Rock Song Ever Recorded


    Brilliant Collision of Evocative Poetry, Swirling Roots-Based Soul, and Hard-Driving Blues Sounds Incredible in Mono on Mobile Fidelity Vinyl: 2LP Set Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies


    1965 Set Also Includes Ballad of a Thin Man, Desolation Row, and Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues


    Its title references the road that spans North Minnesota to the Mississippi Delta, and the formative blues, country, and roots sounds connected to its existence. The highway also lays claim to towering musical myths and deaths, many tied to the blues lexicon and narrative. All figure prominently on the revolutionary beacon that is Highway 61 Revisited, the 1965 set that overturned rules, upended preexisting limits, and utterly changed everything in its path. Ranked the fourth-greatest album ever made by Rolling Stone, its reach, power, and content boggle the mind more than five decades after its release.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 copies, this restored analog mono version presents the life-altering music in reference-quality sound - so much so that the record's famous first lightning-strike note is now indeed the snare shot that sound[s] like somebody'd kicked open the door to your mind, as once described by Bruce Springsteen.


    Teeming with organic energy, palpable voltage, and countless textures, Mobile Fidelity's mono 2LP set faithfully recreates the instrumentation, moods, and events associated with the six days Dylan and Co. spent at Columbia's Studio A. While many people experienced Highway 61 Revisited in stereo even at the time of its release, hearing it in mono reveals even more definition, focus, and liveliness. In particular, Dylan's voice is surrounded by more space and atmosphere, and its forefront position makes the lyrics that much more powerful. This is the way everyone would've been introduced to Like a Rolling Stone on AM radio. There's no substitute for such authenticity.


    Recorded amidst a time of unfathomable turmoil and frustration that witnessed Dylan booed by fans, labeled a traitor, and call into question his work, Highway 61 Revisited roars and snarls, jabs and criticizes. Its bonfire of cynicism, fury, indignation, and absurdity forever transformed rock, what it could mean, and what it could do. Supported by a thundering, commanding band that included guitarist Mike Bloomfield and organist Al Kooper, Dylan hopscotches between tempos, moods, and melodies. The symmetry of the songs references a scattered hybrid of R&B, blues, folk, soul, gospel, vaudeville, and garage rock pieces that Dylan assembles in the shape of a brilliant, mind-teasing aural puzzle.

Dylan's sneering tones, raucous arrangements, and unmistakable resentment toward both the establishment and counterculture that adopted him, and assume the form of songs such as "Ballad of a Thin Man," "Queen Jane Approximately," "Tombstone Blues," and the stupefying "Desolation Row."


    At its core, Highway 61 Revisited is about experience, reality, and the cruelties and truths that lie outside soporific safety nets and bourgeois ideals. These reasons-and the bold musicianship, ace performances, inimitable sonics, and vast lyrical expanses-are why the album means as much today as it did in the mid-1960s. Akin to Sgt.
