    Gathering (Deluxe)


    Deluxe Version Includes Bonus CD Of Demos From The Album


    Opaque Yellow Colored Vinyl w/ Etching On Side D


    Gathering is the 9th studio album from critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Josh Ritter. It is the follow-up to 2015's Sermon On The Rocks, which debuted on Billboard #1 Folk Albums, #5 Vinyl Albums, #6 Rock Albums, #8 Independent Albums, and more.


    Regarding the record, Josh says:


    This record is the product of a strange and interesting time. When I started writing Gathering, I felt tired of living in the shadow of my earlier self, my earlier work, but more than discouraged, I felt charged with the possibility and the freedom of cutting myself loose from my own and others expectations. I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms. Some, like Feels Like Lightning or Friendamine, are physical storms. Others, like Dreams, are interior ones. Listening to these songs now, I hear uncertainty, mania, laughter and sadness, all vying for their place on the album. I was surprised by the new voice.


    I have been writing records for almost twenty years now. Each one has been different from the last in subject and form, but with Gathering I feel I've found a new electric dissatisfaction, a new way to rejoice as the storm rolls in.

    Sermon On The Rocks

    Produced by Ritter and Trina Shoemaker (Queens of the Stone Age, Emmylou Harris), Sermon On the Rocks was recorded in two weeks at The Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans. It is Joshs most confident, freewheeling record to date.


    I wanted to make something grand. I wanted it to swing hard. I wanted to peek through deaths keyhole. I wanted my monster to run. -Josh Ritter


    Over the course of his acclaimed career, Ritter has released seven full-length albums, including his most recent, 2013s The Beast In Its Tracks, which debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 and #8 on the Top Rock Albums chart.

    The Great Despiser

    Colored Vinyl


    The Great Despiser, the new album from celebrated singer/songwriter Joe Pug, is the follow-up to his critically acclaimed full-length debut, Messenger, and his wildly popular word-of-mouth EP, Nation of Heat. The 11-track release was recorded in Chicago with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Califone). In addition to Pug, the album features various acclaimed musicians, including Sam Kassirer (Jos Ritter, Langhorne Slim) on piano, organ and marimba as well as backing vocals from The Hold Steady's Craig Finn on the album's title track. Pug has toured alongside Steve Earl, M. Ward and Josh Ritter and has recently performed at both Lollapalooza and the Newport Folk Festival.


    Not only does Chicago-based singer have a beautifully mature voice, but the lyrics possess wisdom seemingly beyond his age. Pair that with his powerful songwriting and it's nearly impossible to avoid drawing comparisons between Pug and folk legends like Bob Dylan or contemporaries like Josh Ritter. - NPR Music

    Kannon

    Sunn 0)))'s Kannon is a three-part single work named for and inspired by the Buddhist bodhisattva of mercy, one who perceives and hears the cries of the world. Kannon is a conceptual record consisting of three pieces of a triadic whole: Kannon 1, 2 and 3. The album was recorded and mixed with co-producer Randall Dunn and includes collaborations from longtime friends Attila Csihar, Oren Ambarchi, Rex Ritter and Steve Moore, among others. Kannon is less abstract than earlier offerings, and simultaneously, their most metal offering since Black One. It centers on the notion of mantra which, given the sometimes circular nature of the band's power drones on record, should not be unfamiliar.

    When The World Comes Down

    Limited Repress Gatefold LP On Clear Vinyl With White And Blue Starburst


    The All-American Rejects began writing material for their third studio album in late December 2006 after wrapping up their Tournado tour, and continued through into the new year. But due to further touring and promotion for their second album Move Along, the band did not enter the studio until nearly a year later. This was also the first time lyricists Nick Wheeler and Tyson Ritter tried new methods of writing by escaping to various regional areas in North America to conceive new lyrics so that the songs could sound honest.


    The first songs to be written that made it onto the album were I Wanna, Back to Me, and Breakin'. While I Wanna was written over a six-month period, with Ritter making constant refinements, the following songs Gives You Hell and Another Heart Calls were all written during a road trip to Vancouver, Canada, with Fallin' Apart and Mona Lisa (When the World Comes Down) getting scored in Rabun County, Georgia, the latter of which was recorded live in one take. The album was later named When the World Comes Down as Ritter saw the title track as a perfect, simple work of art.


    The All-American Rejects began recording for When the World Comes Down at Skywalker Ranch in San Rafael, California[2] and later at Barefoot Studios with producer Eric Valentine. The 16-piece orchestra featured on a dozen of the tracks was recorded at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.


    In an interview with She Knows Entertainment, Ritter commented I think When the World Comes Down has been a journey. I was twenty-three when I started writing this record. I'm twenty-four now... people say when you graduate college you figure out who you are. If I had graduated college, this would be that moment - now. I think I was most questioning life when I was getting off the road with Move Along and this record was therapy for me. It's everything I needed it to be for me.

    Vitamin F

    During the gap of nearly 10 years since their last release, Fontanelle has been trying to transport themselves back in time to 1973 into Patrick Gleeson's Different Fur Trading Company studio. With the help of Randall Dunn's expertise (sunn O))), Black Mountain, Wolves in the Throne Room), it sounds like they made it!


    Rex Ritter's tour of duty with Sunn O))) during Fontanelle's hiatus seems to have irreparably changed his DNA, as well as the bands. Adding an amazing array of horn players (many heard on sunn O)))s; Monoliths & Dimensions), Fontanelle has conjured a burly fusion jazz sound that has been dubbed, "White Magus."


    Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin), Steve Moore (Earth, sunn O)))), Hans Teuber, Eric Walton (Skerik), Jef Brown (Jackie-O MF) and Dave Carter are all featured on Vitamin F. The band, based in Portland OR, is comprised of Andy Brown (Jessamine), Rex Ritter (Jessamine, sunn O)))), Paul Dickow (Strategy), Brian Foote, Nudge, Leech), Mat Morgan and Borg Norum. Vinyl version of this greasy-groovy masterpiece of fuzzed out funk from Southern Lord is limited to a one time pressing of 1,000.

    Who's Feeling Young Now?

    Punch Brothers release their new album, Whos Feeling Young Now?, on vinyl March 20. Completed over three weeks at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, the record was produced by Grammy Award winner Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse). Whos Feeling Young Now? is the follow-up to 2010s Grammy-nominated Antifogmatic, about which the New York Times said: Punch Brothers have the unplugged lineup of an old-fashioned string band But their music is as radical as new acoustic music can be.


    Ten songs from Whos Feeling Young Now? were written by Punch Brothers, with the bands friend Josh Ritter co-writing lyrics on two tunes (Hundred Dollars and New York City). Additionally, the album contains the bands interpretations of Radioheads Kid A and the Swedish group VĂ„sens Flippen. The vinyl album was pressed on two discs of 140-gram, audiophile-quality vinyl and includes four additional Punch Brotherspenned tunes. Pre-orders include an instant download of the album track Movement and Location and an exclusive set of five custom Punch Brothers paper coasters illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist Matthew Diffee, signed by the band.


    Punch Brothers was formed in 2006 by mandolinist/singer Chris Thile with four other virtuosic musicians: fiddler Gabe Witcher, banjo player Noam Pikelny, bassist Paul Kowert, and guitarist Chris Critter Eldridge. Their first Nonesuch record, Punch, was released in 2008 and combined elements of the bands many musical interests, including indie rock, folk, jazz, bluegrass, and classical music. In 2009 they all moved to New York City and began a regular, standing-room-only, residency at the Living Room, trying out new songs as well as inspired covers; these shows ultimately spawned Antifogmatic.


    Whos Feeling Young Now? is less evasive than Antifogmatic and Punch, said Thile. And I feel like part of that is us becoming more comfortable with who we are as a band, and me becoming more comfortable with who I am as a singer.

    The Christmas Spirit


    The Johnny Cash/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    The Classic Top Charting 1963 Christmas Album


    First Time Audiophile White Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso - Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Johnny Cash was a musical phenomenon and an American icon
    with his legendary musical career starting in the 50's at Sun Records.
    His plethora of hit recordings led to a major move to Columbia
    Records, and the late legend charted recordings in all the major
    formats like country, rock , pop, folk, and gospel genres, sharing his
    legendary vocal, guitar and songwriting persona for millions of fans
    worldwide.


    With 1963's The Christmas Spirit Lp, Johnny Cash teams up
    with producer Don Law (Ray Price) and created one of the most
    revered holiday and inspirational hit albums of all time. The album
    features Johnny's stellar interpretations of both popular and religious
    favorites like the definitive hit version of I Heard The Bells On
    Christmas Day, the Tex Ritter favorite Here Was A Man, June Carter
    Cash's Christmas As I Knew It, plus more traditional fare like Blue
    Christmas and The Little Drummer Boy. His impressive readings of
    inspirational favorites like Silent Night, Holy Night, plus Johnny's own
    The Christmas Spirit and Who Kept The Sheep, truly made the The
    Christmas Spirit Lp a groundbreaking effort for this sorely missed
    legend.


    This fine album has been out of print for decades on vinyl, and
    it is our honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
    presentation of The Christmas Spirit by the late great Johnny Cash
    on Friday Music. This limited edition audiophile masterpiece is now
    impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso and also for a very limited
    time is pressed by R.T.I. on White Vinyl for the holidays. Also,
    the Lp features the original Lp artwork not seen in years, in a first
    time gatefold presentation exclusively from the Columbia Records
    archives.

    Messenger

    After playing over 200 shows, including runs with Steve Earle, M. Ward and Josh Ritter, Pug took to the studio to record his sophomore release. While the Nation of Heat EP may have earned him the title of talent to watch, with Messenger, Pug explores new territory, sneaking pedal steel guitar into The Sharpest Crown and backing The Door is Always Open with a powerhouse rhythm section. He does not, however, let his solo charm escape the album. Songs like Bury Me Far (From My Uniform) and Unsophisticated Heart make it obvious that Pug is still master of the guy-and-the-guitar song.

    Anthony D'Amato releases his forthcoming album, 'The Shipwreck From The Shore," a riveting 10-track collection. The NYC-based songwriter is growing from his early homespun self-recorded solo acoustic work to a more ambitious, full-band sound. The album was recorded at The Great North Sound Society, an 18th Century farmhouse-turned-studio deep in the woods of Maine, and features Matt McCaughan of Bon Iver on drums, Brad Cook of Megafun on bass, and producer/keyboardist Sam Kassirer's (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Langhorne Slim) rich production. D'Amato's songs are self-mined, wailing tales of moving past life's dramas bolstered by waves of drums and guitars.

    Fool's Gold

    Translucent Gold Vinyl


    My greatest hope is that it ends up becoming the soundtrack to some perfect romance, or at the very least a great cocktail party," says Jill Barber of her new album, 'Fool's Gold. Jill - aka "Canada's sweetheart" - is a two-time Juno Award nominee and Montreal Jazz Fest headliner whose last album hit #1 on the iTunes Jazz charts, and landed her a national segment with NPR. She has collaborated with Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, and Kris Kristofferson has called her a "damn good songwriter." She also published a children's book, entitled 'Music is for Everyone,' this May. 'Fool's Gold' explores every nook of Jill's musical history: sultry torch songs, Hank Williams-inspired ballads, an homage to the golden era of the Brill Building, Motown and beyond. Lead single "Broken For Good" ventures into the early days of Motown with its strong backbeat, horns, a driving bass line and immediate pop appeal. She channels Patsy Cline on "The Careless One," a bittersweet Western, full of resignation and sorrow. As Jill puts it, "It hurts me to sing it, just a little. But that's how I know it is a keeper." The record was produced in Toronto by longtime collaborators and bandmates Les Cooper and Drew Jurecka.

    Loved Wild Lost

    Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers' much-anticipated sophomore album is titled Loved Wild Lost. The band teamed with producer Brian Deck (Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse, Josh Ritter) on Loved Wild Lost and it's their first time working with an outside collaborator. The result is their most compelling collection of songs to date. The richly layered sound forms the ideal foundation for Bluhm's soaring vocals and increasingly powerful songcraft. Further color comes from San Francisco's Magik*Magik Orchestra (Death Cab for Cutie, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Walkmen), whose complex arrangements serve to amplify the indelibly universal themes of Loved Wild Lost.


    "Loved Wild Lost is a sincere and sophisticated collection of songs steeped in tradition, but of its own time," says Nicki Bluhm. "After three solid years of playing as a band across the country, we have had time to learn, reflect and grow. This album displays a departure into the deeper and more contemplative themes of people in transition and the struggle to retain the energy and optimism of youth as life becomes more complex."


    "The longer something moves away from its inception point, the more it takes on a life and a narrative of its own," adds Nicki's husband and the band's musical director, Tim Bluhm. "In these songs, I think you can clearly hear that happening; idealism and optimism losing control to the forces of inertia and a life of constant traveling. Happiness becomes an intention and love becomes a long-term study of oneself and of one another."

    Sleep In Safety (Pre-Order)

    Pressed On Ghastly Green Colored Vinyl


    Limited To 1000 Copies


    Formed from putrefying remnants of The Germs, The Consumers, The Bags, The Gun Club, and The Screamers among other L.A. punk outfits, 45 Grave were arguably the first American Goth/deathrock band and inarguably one of the best.


    Fronted by the Exene-meets-Vampirella vocal and visual stylings of Dinah Cancer (still one of the greatest stage names in a punk rock genre full of 'em), 45 Grave also featured Paul B. Cutler on guitar, Don Bolles on drums, Rob (Ritter) Graves on bass, and Paul Roessler on keyboards, and from that all-star line-up came 1983's Sleep in Safety, their lone studio release and only recording with the band's original members. Probably most famous for the first appearance of the horrifyingly graphic, true-crime track "Partytime," Sleep in Safety also offered the early MTV track "Evil" and the band "theme song" "45 Grave" among other blandishments for those who like their rock and roll with a side of the macabre.


    Both the LP and CD have been out of print for an eternity, and cost an arm and a leg; for our Real Gone Music exhumation of this classic record, we have "embalmed" two very special editions. On LP, we have preserved the original album's gatefold edition complete with lyrics and added a custom inner sleeve drawn from the band's very rare "A Tale of Strange Phenomena" press release-limited edition of 1000 in "Ghastly Green" vinyl!

    We're Not Going Anywhere

    Austin-based songwriter David Ramirez will release We're Not Going Anywhere, the follow up to his 2015 breakthrough record Fables and second in partnership with Thirty Tigers.

    Most times, when a relationship ends, there is a season of mourning but then the clouds part, the sun rises, and we move on. What happens if and when the sun doesn't rise? What happens if, no matter how hard we try, we can't move on? Ramirez explained about the song.

    On the 10 vividly imagined and passionately performed songs on We're Not Going Anywhere David Ramirez takes in the world from his unique perspective: Being half white and half Mexican has made this current political climate especially interesting. So many cultures in this country are being viewed as un-American and it breaks my heart. My family have raised children here, created successful businesses here, and are proud to be a part of this country. Most of what I've seen as of late is misplaced fear. I wanted to write about that fear and how, instead of benefiting us, it sends us spiraling out control.

    For We're Not Going Anywhere, Ramirez partnered with producer Sam Kassirer, who has helmed albums by Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Bhi Bhiman, and many other artists. In January 2017 Ramirez and his band decamped to the Great North Sound Society, an eighteenth-century farmhouse in rural Maine that serves as Kassirer's studio.

    It's very secluded, which was part of the appeal. We were able to get out of our touring headspace and stay completely involved with the record and what we were doing, explains Ramirez.

    We're Not Going Anywhere turns that distance into a big-picture perspective- engaged and informed, compassionately political but not necessarily partisan. We'd take breaks during the day and watch the news and see all the rallies and marches and the disruption and the out-of-control feeling that was everywhere then-and, frankly, still is now. We were looking around and no one was around us. The closest house was a mile away, so it was just us. We were grateful just to retreat from that social tornado for a while and create something that we hoped would be very beautiful.

    Leadbelly (Pure Pleasure)

    Leadbelly's last recording sessions for a commercial record label, held in the early fall of 1944, yielded a dazzling 12 songs, embracing virtuoso guitar blues (Grasshoppers In My Pillow), pounding piano-driven scatting (The Eagle Rocks, with Leadbelly himself at the ivories, a talent for which he wasn't usually recognized), and familiar standards done in some startlingly different ways, including Goodnight, Irene, Rock Island Line, and Ella Speed, done with the understated accompaniment of a zither (courtesy of Paul Mason Howard) as well as his own guitar. Leadbelly was in excellent voice and top form on guitar and piano - having gone to California to test the commercial waters, he met Tex Ritter, an old friend, who arranged for Leadbelly to come to his house and, with Merle Travis playing as well and Capitol executive Lee Gillette present, auditioned then and there for the label; he was energized by the experience, and Capitol's recording caught the brightest as well as the deepest tones in his playing, thus making this record one of the very best showcases for acoustic 12-string guitar of the period. Sadly, only a handful of these tracks were issued during the man's own lifetime, thus convincing him that they were another career dead end - in 1956 (and again in 1962) they emerged with an impassioned annotation by Dave Dexter Jr., imploring people to buy these last commercial sides by one of the most celebrated bluesmen of the century.



    Production notes: Whilst this album has been mastered and produced to the highest possible standards it is NOT upto what would be considered audiophile standards. This would be impossible bearing in mind the standards of recording and mastering at the time.




    Musicians:



    • Leadbelly (guitar, piano)

    • Paul Mason Howard (zither)




    Recording: October 1944 in Hollywood, USA

    Production: Dave Dexter Jr. and Lee Gilette



    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.
