    Blue Mind

    Anne Bisson and Simaudio join forces with legendary producer, conductor, and arranger Guy St-Onge, along with RenÉ Laflamme of Fidelio Audio, bassist Normand Guilbault, and drummer Paul Brochu, to deliver a masterpiece of exceptional music that is sure to take your breath away. This fantastic audiophile recording features a rich and warm mid-range, with sultry tones that envelop and embrace. The first time you hear Bisson's crystal clear voice, you'll likely get shivers, while subsequent listens will reveal a depth and emotional core that resonate long after the final chord has sounded. Melodies soar with a delicate confidence through changes that are a unique blend of jazz and vocal pop.


    Blue Mind was recorded on July 21-22, 2008, at Reference Studio in St-Calixte, QuÉbec. It was mastered by Marc-Olivier Bouchard, assisted by RenÉ Laflamme, at Pure Mastering in St-Calixte. There are no overdubs on any song except Dragonfly. With the exception of Hoping Love Will Last (Steve Hackett), all songs were written by Anne Bisson.

    Elgar & Vaughan Williams/Enigma Variations, Wasps & Greensleeves

    Grammy®-winning engineer Keith O. Johnson has captured this colorful, beloved English music in brilliant HD sound. The Kansas City Symphony garnered tremendous critical acclaim for their first project on Reference Recordings, incidental music for The Tempest by Sullivan and Sibelius. Their second release on RR, Britten s Orchestra, received a Grammy® for Best Surround Sound for both the engineer and producer, as well as rave reviews everywhere, although the title is now unfortunately out of print.


    This release again features Michael Stern, the son of famed violinist Isaac Stern. He is also the founder of the Iris Chamber Orchestra in Memphis, TN and, in addition to RR, has recorded for Sony, Hyperion, Denon, Arabesque, and Naxos. Producer David Frost won Grammy® Awards in 2005, 2009, and 2011 for Classical Producer of the Year. He has produced a large roster of stars and Grammy®-winning titles.

    Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis

    3-Fold Gatefold Sleeve


    Includes 16-Page Booklet


    Remastered Audio


    40th Anniversary Edition


    Following the artistic success of his 1973 Stax sessions and the global phenomenon of the Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite album and broadcast the same year, Elvis opened 1974 with a 15 city tour routed to end in Memphis and a state-of-the-art concert recording. When originally released as a single LP, Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis reached #1 on the Country charts and featured How Great Thou Art, the track that would bring Elvis his third Grammy win.


    This luxury quadruple vinyl reissue contains a previously unreleased Test Run of the entire show recorded with a live audience at the Richmond Coliseum a few days before the legendary concert. The remarkable test run performance was recorded in MONO, drenched in the reverb Elvis preferred, and provides new insight into the magic of Elvis.


    As a special added bonus for Elvis aficionados, we've included five intimate tracks (three of them previously unreleased) cut at the RCA Studios in Hollywood on August 16, 1974. Originally intended as reference recordings for an upcoming Las Vegas engagement, the performances-which include Down In The Alley, Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues, Softly As I Leave You, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and The Twelfth Of Never - provide a rare fly-on-the-wall glimpse into Elvis' consummate backstage artistry as he prepares these songs for concert.


    Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis will include a 16 page booklet featuring rare photos, previously unseen memorabilia, new liner notes, press clips and more.

    Klipsch Reference XR8i In-Ear Headphones






    Hybrid Design - Home Theater Sound

    Combining the bombastic, rich bass of R6i's custom 6.5mm dual magnet dynamic driver with the premium tonal balance and high frequency definition of the KG-723 balanced armature, the Klipsch XR8i Hybrid In-Ear Headphones produce sound only matched by a home theater. Designed with a true downward-firing subwoofer, the XR8i makes does not compromise.


    High Clarity Balanced Armature

    Klipsch's custom, single full-range KG-723 balanced armature produces crystal clean, natural sounding vocals and precisely defined upper frequencies only achievable through balanced armature technology.


    Bass-Tuned Dynamic Subwoofer

    XR8i uses a 6.5mm dual magnet dynamic driver to product low, sub-bass-unheard of in a headphone of this class. With a moving coil driver which focuses on reproducing only low frequencies, the XR8i creates the headroom needed to drive highly-dynamic recordings with high levels of energy and without distortion


    Die-Cast Zinc And Co-Molded Elastomer Housing

    R8i's minimalistic design features sturdy die-cast zinc for the front housing, perfectly weighted to stay put inside your ear canal. The high quality and durable rear housing is built from co-molded elastomer, a two-layer design with a rigid inner layer for support and a soft-touch pliable outer layer for comfort.


    Patented Oval Ear Tips

    Soft, flexible oval ear tips easily fit the contours of the ear canal for comfortable, long-term wear and accomplishes a pristine acoustic seal for superior noise isolation.


    Advanced Three-Button Mic And Remote

    Enjoy easy control of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod while listening to music, watching movies and answering phone calls.


    Accessories

    Featuring a black finish, each comes with carrying case, clothing clip, four different sized ear tips and a one-year warranty.

    Klipsch Reference X20i In-Ear Headphones





    Hear The Air

    X20i is the most revealing in-ear headphone Klipsch has ever created. High frequencies are reproduced with extreme accuracy and bass is clear, full, and warm. Breaking down the limitations of the capabilities in the class, X20i brings a new standard to headphone acoustics. Powered by a true two-way dual armature design, the high-horsepower KG-926T woofer is paired to a high resolution KG-125B super tweeter. This brings about a palpable sound character and makes X20i the broadest bandwidth in-ear headphone available from Klipsch.


    High Resolution Super Tweeter

    Placing X20i into a class of its own, the KG-125B super tweeter provides a truly transparent sound. With high-frequency performance designed to take advantage of superb lossless recordings, this headphone provides hi-hats and cymbals with true-to-life realism.


    Surgical-Grade Stainless Steel

    Injection-molded surgical-grade stainless steel is the main material used in the X20i chassis. Featuring a reverse hood scoop, X20i is one of the smallest and most durable two-way headphones available today.


    Super-Slim Ear Tips

    X20i features the most comfortable ear tip ever designed by Klipsch. Pre-installed, the most popular ear tip has been redesigned into a super slim form. After extensive research, surveys lead to the conclusion that ear canals are even narrower than previously thought. The super slim ear tip responds to that by using an even narrower and more tapered design, allowing people who have never found in-ear monitors to be comfortable to wear them without issue. However, since all ears are unique, included with the product are five additional sizes to pick from.


    Interchangeable Cables

    Another impressive feature of X20i is the ability to swap cables. Screw-type coaxial SSMCX connectors for both left and right sides allow for swapping cables or using custom balanced cables. Roughly 35% smaller than industry-standard MMCX connectors, X20i has all the advantages of interchangeable cables without the bulk.


    Advanced Three-Button Mic And Remote

    Enjoy easy control of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod while listening to music, watching movies and answering phone calls.


    Accessories

    Featuring a stainless black finish, each comes with genuine leather carrying case, tie bar, five different sized ear tips and a one-year warranty.

    Ortofon Stereo Test Record

    Ortofon's new Test Record is designed to allow you to verify your HiFi system in the most natural audio surroundings at home. The Test Record contains special test signals developed for analyzing cartridge performance as well as its interaction with your tonearm and turntable.


    Before testing your cartridge, please verify the HiFi system's functionality. The left speaker should be connected to the left amplifier channel and vice versa; both speakers should work in phase and be optimally positioned in the room.
    The Test Record is designed to be played through your system with in-built RIAA equalization. Volume control is recommended to be set at a moderate signal level.


    Please refer to your turntable and tonearm's instructions for correct installation and alignment, adjust tonearm to be parallel to record surface, set Vertical Tracking Force and antiskating according to the cartridge's recommended technical data, and adjust stylus overhang.

    Each side of the record consists of 15 tracks which have been cut from 1-4 and 5-15:


    1. Frequency Sweep Left Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    2. Frequency Sweep Right Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    3. Frequency Sweep Left Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    4. Frequency Sweep Right Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    5. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Left
    6. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Right
    7. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Left
    8. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Right
    9. Tracking ability, lateral 50 m peak
    10. Tracking ability, lateral 60 m peak
    11. Tracking ability, lateral 70 m peak
    12. Tracking ability, lateral 80 m peak
    13. Tracking ability, lateral 90 m peak
    14. Tracking ability, lateral 100 m peak
    15. Square Wave Form 2.7 msec duty cycle 3:7
    * The record has a constant velocity amplitude throughout the sweep.


    1-4 Frequency sweep - a tool for checking frequency response
    There are several factors which can affect frequency response, including cable capacitance, cartridge loading, tracking force and worn parts. Because of this, it can be difficult to achieve perfectly flat frequency response. Sometimes by making small compromises in the cartridge loading, a better overall frequency response can be achieved. Considering the above the signal must be clean throughout the sweep.


    5-8 Reference tone for testing channel output
    With this standard reference signal is it possible to check the correctness of the connections of the left and right channels, channel balance and speed of the turntable.


    9 -14 Tracking ability test, 315 Hz lateral modulation
    These tracks contain a 315 Hz signal, recorded at increasing pick amplitudes of 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 micrometers. Please refer to your cartridge's tracking ability value specified in the technical data sheet. Your cartridge should be able to track the actual level without audible distortion. Inability to track can be heard as a departure from a pure tone or a sputtering and intermittent tone. To determine if it is one or both channels, the balance control can be utilized. In case of differing tracking ability in the left and right channels it is probably necessary to readjust the anti-skating correction of the tonearm. If both channels fail to track properly, then vertical tracking force should be increased until no further improvement of tracking force can be obtained.


    15. Square Wave Form 2.7 msec duty cycle 3:7
    When monitoring the output of your cartridge with an oscilloscope you'll then see a square wave located precisely above each other if the connection from the cartridge is correct.


    After successful completion of the above test procedures, you can ensure that your cartridge is optimized. Still the human ear is very sensitive to difference in tone distortion; its level depends on the stylus condition and record wear.

    R. Strauss: Ein Heldenleben, Op.40, TrV 190

    The most famous conductor of his age, Herbert von Karajan released over 300 albums for Deutsche Grammophon and enjoyed a long a fruitful partnership with the Berlin Philharmonic. Three of their legendary recordings together are available again on vinyl. Richard Strauss' Ein Heldenleben was Karajan's very first recording as the Berlin Philharmonic's music director and his first post-war recording for Deutsche Grammophon. It remains a reference Strauss recording.

    Brahms: Violin Concerto

    Warner Classics continue releasing iconic recordings of the core catalogue in their original cover artwork on LP to benefit from the booming vinyl market. Heroic, dramatic, reflective and joyous, Brahms's Violin Concerto, written for the great Joseph Joachim, a close friend of the composer, is one of the monuments of the Romantic repertoire.


    In a performance of epic sweep, Itzhak Perlman and Carlo Maria Giulini do full justice to its ambitions. This record has been regarded at the time it was released as "one of the greatest Brahms recordings of all time" (Guide Diapason). 40 years after its original release, it remains an absolute must-have, and a reference recording of the Brahms Concerto. It also benefits from the 24-BIT/96kHz remastering done at Abbey Road in 2015.

    1. Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77: I. Allegro non troppo - By Itzhak Perlman/Carlo Maria Giulini

    That's Harakiri

    It isn't often an artist seems to materialize from nowhere with a sound so disinterested in following any conventional rules that it inspires equal measures bafflement and astonishment, but in 2012 with the release of the 'Unknown Vectors' EP, Milwaukee based producer Sd Laika did just that. Taking the already alien sounds of grime music as a starting off point and abrasively twisting them into something even more unknowable, Laika had developed a sound that defied any easy categorization. 2 years later Dummy Magazine would come to refer to this record as 'one of the most jaw-droppingly inventive debuts in recent memory and ought to be considered "the other 'Cold Mission'" (in reference to the highly acclaimed Logos LP from 2013)'. After 'Unknown Vectors' Sd Laika became something of a mystery, disappearing from the scene altogether leaving behind him a small, but hardcore cult fanbase convinced they'd glimpsed something very special in those 5 tracks. It was only in 2013 when Tri Angle approached Sd Laika that a new record began to take shape. This record would end up consisting of songs Sd Laika had recorded in 2011 and 2012, songs he'd convinced himself would never see the light of day. For various reasons it looked likely Unknown Vectors would wind up being Laika's one and only ever release, which is why we're so excited (and as huge fans, relieved) to announce the release of his debut album 'That's Harakari'.

    The Execution Of All Things

    The Execution of All Things is the second full length album released by Los Angeles-based indie pop band Rilo Kiley. Expanding on their previous musical sound that mostly incorporated guitars, vocals, percussion and pianos, Execution contains heavy electronica sampling mixed into the songs in a rather unusual and displaced-sounding way. Also, unlike their previous tracks which were written in very traditional manners, the lyrics to the songs on Execution are very wordy and read like prose. Musically, the record has a very sunny disposition, with bouncing bass lines and simple melodies complemented by Lewis' vocal style, but the upbeat music is generally counterpointed by the often dark and morose subject matter that the lyrics reference. The album was recorded at Saddle Creek Records in Omaha, Nebraska, and the aforementioned features show the influence of that studio's associated Omaha Sound.

    Don't Act Like You Don't Care

    Before the success of his group Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple worked full-time as a plasterer. At nights after work, he spent his hours crafting what would become Here We Go Magic's self-titled debut. During the days he wrote a completely different set of songs in his head. The resulting record Don't Act Like You Don't Care shines with clarity and daylight, in contrast to Here We Go Magic's hazy aquatic debut.


    After recording two critically acclaimed solo records for Mill Pond (2005, 2007) Temple's work still hadn't garnered much attention from the record-buying public. Frustrated, but not defeated, he focused his creative energy into the writing of two amazing, but completely different records. Initially referred to as 'The Country Record,' Don't Act Like You Don't Care was shelved due to the success of Here We Go Magic's self-titled debut. Now, three years later, we're finally able to offer this incredible collection of folk-pop songs.


    Unlike the Here We Go Magic record, Don't Act Like You Don't Care focuses on Temple's songwriting and evocative tenor. From heartbreaking ballads like So Long, So Long and Ballad for Dick George to jaunty pop gems like Ophelia and In The Open you'll become fast friends with these songs that continue to satisfy after hundreds of listens.


    Inspired by Rudy Van Gelder's early Blue Note recordings, Temple and friends recorded the songs in two 4-hour sessions using just three microphones and a 4-track recorder. Temple is fortunate to have some amazingly talented friends with Eliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost) on synths, Tyler Wood on piano, Parker Kindred (Antony and the Johnsons, Jeff Buckley) on drums, Michael Bloch (Here We Go Magic) on guitar and Adam Chilenski on bass.

    South Of Nowhere

    Spanish Gold, which features drummer Patrick Hallahan (My Morning Jacket), guitarist Adrian Quesada (formerly of Grupo Fantasma) and guitarist and lead vocalist Dante Schwebel (City and Colour, formerly of Hacienda), release their debut album South of Nowhere on BMG/Del Mar Records.


    Produced by the trio along with Collin Dupuis (JEFF the Brotherhood, Bombino), South of Nowhere was recorded by Dupuis at Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Studio in Nashville and at Lalaland in Louisville. Additional recording was done with Jim Eno (Spoon, Poliça) at Public Hi-Fi in Austin and Sam Patlove (The Octopus Project) at Big Orange in Austin.


    Of making the new album, Schwebel comments, "We kept finding that we had a lot of the same reference points during the recording. It became evident that we were still children of the MTV era.


    We grew up with MTV when it was still a music channel. The way that the programming crossed genres from R&B to hip hop, rock, soul and pop music is how we approach records. It's an album of all those styles. Like watching a random hour of MTV programming circa 1986-1996. It's a nod to Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre, Madonna, the Beastie Boys or Tom Petty, all with a Texas border town setting. It all adds up to a fun listen that you can keep on repeat."

    Poison Season

    Poison Season opens with Vancouver native Dan Bejar swathed in Hunky Dory strings. He's a dashboard Bowie surveying four wracked characters-Jesus, Jacob, Judy, Jack-simultaneously Biblical and musical theatre. This bittersweet, Times Square-set fanfare is reprised twice more on the record-first as swaying, saxophone-stoked "street-rock" and then finally as a curtain-closing reverie. "The first and last songs are actually one song tracked live with quintet," explains their author. "I even sang with the band. That song always swung between super austere and super mid-'70s Springsteen/Bowie street-rock. In the end, I decided I wanted both. Couldn't really figure out a way to sequence the orchestral version within the record, so I decided to carve it up as a book-ending motif, with the rock version squarely in the middle." Mr. Bejar has long displayed a chameleonic instinct for change while maintaining a unified aesthetic (rather than just pinballing between reference points). No two records sound the same, but they're always uniquely Destroyer. His latest incarnation often appears to take sonic cues from a distinctly British (usually Scottish, to be precise) strain of sophisti-pop: you might hear traces of Aztec Camera, Prefab Sprout, Orange Juice, or The Blow Monkeys. These songs merge a casual literary brilliance with intense melodic verve, nimble arrangements, and a certain blue-eyed soul sadness.

    Ranked 144/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Straight Outta Compton is the debut studio album by American hip hop group N.W.A, released August 8, 1988, on group member Eazy-E's record label Ruthless Records. Its title refers to the group's native town, Compton, California. Production for the album was handled by Dr. Dre, with DJ Yella giving co-production. The album has been viewed as the pioneering record of gangsta rap; with its ever-present profanity and violent lyrics, it helped to give birth to this then-new sub-genre of hip hop. It has been considered groundbreaking by music writers and has had an enormous impact on the evolution of West Coast hip hop.
