Matthew and Gunnar Nelson's debut smash LP After The Rain will always be looked upon as one of the finest rock albums ever to be released in the 1990's. Fueled by a huge #1 single with (Can't Live Without Your) Love And Affection, the twins of rock legend Ricky Nelson truly proved that the apple did not fall too far from the tree, as success followed the duo for over two decades, making this LP and band synonymous with a sound and style uniquely their own.
After The Rain showcases their amazing talents and skills in the studio setting, with brilliant guitar and bass artistry, strong hard rock vocals, and popular songwriting expertise. Featuring a treasure trove of AOR, Top 40 and MTV era smash hits like More Than Ever, Only Time Will Tell and the stellar title track After The Rain, Nelson truly delivered the goods with this fine debut album.
Over two decades later, these tunes continue to resonate as Nelson continually tours as Nelson along with their critically acclaimed tribute tours to their late rock and roll dad Ricky Nelson. The LP was released during the CD era, and was pretty much hard to find on vinyl since then ..until now!

Impeccably remastered by Joe Reagoso and Nelson at Friday Music and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA, this debut rock classic will truly be one of the more anticipated vinyl releases in quite some time.

Ricky Sings AgainRicky Nelson Ricky Sings Again on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label
Foundation-Establishing Rock n' Roll Album Includes Eternal Hit Lonesome Town
A Late 1950s Vocal and Instrumental Touchstone: Nelson Comes Into His Own, Moving Away from Teen Pop and Towards Serious Rockabilly
Stellar Backing Band Includes Elvis Presley Sideman/Guitarist James Burton and Backing Vocalists the Jordanaires
Also Includes Top 10 Singles Believe What You Say, It's Late, and Never Be Anyone Else But You;
Superb Sound: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI
Ricky Nelson will forever be identified with the ageless single Lonesome Town. The career-defining smash is included here, on a record that arguably remains the picturesque idol's peak moment, a 1959 set on which the singer moves away from teen pop and towards serious rock nl' roll and rockabilly on par with the likes of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. Loaded with material expressly written for Nelson as well as tunes penned by Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, and featuring an all-star session musician band, Ricky Sings Again is a foundation-building 1950s album.
Exceeding the fidelity of any prior analog pressing and affording a warmth missing from Capitol's out-of-print digital reissues, this Silver Label LP, pressed at RTI and mastered on Mobile Fidelity's internationally acclaimed mastering system, teems with detail, presence, dynamics, and authority. With help from his legendary father, Ozzie, Nelson enjoyed superb studio production, heard here in the form of balanced instrumentation, natural tonalities, wide and deep soundstages, and you-are-there vocals. Studio dimensions, too, come across with palpable body and precision. Since the record is a collection, some of the tracks are in mono, others in early stereo.
Backed by a stellar band that includes Elvis Presley guitarist James Burton and in-demand studio bassist James Kirkland, Nelson delivers what remains a 1950s classic that stands up to everything recorded by his famous contemporaries. Burton mimics the sound of a train on One Of These Mornings, just one of the myriad tunes here on which the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member lays down fabulous lines and rockabilly licks that both shade and support the concise melodies. While largely recognized for the melancholy ballad Lonesome Town, one of four Top 10 singles on the set, Ricky Sings Again is as much about early rock n' roll and extraordinary singing. About that voice.
Simultaneously tender and rollicking, innocent and mature, Nelson conveys a rainbow of emotions, pouring over country-flavored weepers and beat-driven rockabilly numbers with equal parts sensitivity, smoothness, and sincerity. A surfeit of heavenly background harmonies and innovative guitar-led breaks make masterpieces out of upbeat offerings such as You Tear Me Up as well as slow-dance invitations like Old Enough to Love. Add the Jordanaires on back-up vocals, and there's something for everyone here.
No matter the performance, Nelson demonstrates time and again on Ricky Sings Again why he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the institution's second year of existence, and why, even more so than Elvis during 1958-59, he was the period's leading singles artist.

So You Wannabe An OutlawSo You Wannabe an Outlaw, Earle's first album for Warner Bros. Records since 1997's El Corazón, explores his country songwriting roots and features collaborations with Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush, and Miranda Lambert.
"There's nothing 'retro' about this record," Earle says. "I'm just acknowledging where I'm coming from." So You Wannabe an Outlaw is the first recording he has made in Austin, TX. Earle has lived in New York City for the past decade. "Look, I'm always gonna be a Texan, no matter what I do," he says. "And I'm always going to be somebody who learned their craft in Nashville. It's who I am."
So You Wannabe an Outlaw is an homage to outlaw music and is dedicated to the late Waylon Jennings. "I was out to unapologetically 'channel' Waylon as best as I could," Earle says. "This record was all about me playing' on the back pick-up of a '66 Fender Telecaster on an entire record for the first time in my life. The vocal part of it is a little different. I certainly don't sound like Waylon Jennings. I moved to Nashville in November of 1974, and right after that Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger came out. I was around when Waylon was recording Dreaming My Dreams. Guitar Town (Earle's 1986 chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning debut album) wound up being kind of my version of those types of songs," Earle recalls.
Earle is backed on So You Wannabe an Outlaw by his long-time band The Dukes - guitarist Chris Masterson, fiddle player Eleanor Whitmore, bassist Kelly Looney, and new members drummer Brad Pemberton and pedal steel player Ricky Ray Jackson. The album was produced by Richard Bennett and recorded at Arlyn Studios in Austin.LP 1

Chinese FoundationThe music of The Growlers is unmistakable. Sure, you can hone in on some influences baked into the work of this California-bred band. Heck, even they'd cop to a few, like Ricky Nelson and The Clash. But once those same RIYL tags have been filtered through the minds and hands and voices of this five-piece, there's simply nothing else like it. This is especially true of Chinese Fountain, The Growlers' fifth full-length set. The 11 songs found on it are some of the strongest that they've committed to tape yet; a byproduct of eight years in the trenches together finely honing their gypsy folk dirges and psychedelic sea shanties to fans around the world.1.
