He may not be a mainstream mainstay, but mention the name Walter Schreifels to
anyone even tangentially involved in the punk or hardcore scene and chances are you'll be met
with borderline reverence. From his tenure in legendary hardcore bands like Gorilla Biscuits and
Youth Of Today to his work in the pioneering post-hardcore act Quicksand and cult favorites like
Rival Schools, Schreifels has proved himself to be one of the most talented and diverse songwriters
of his generation. Over two decades after GB released their landmark album Start Today,
Schreifels transcended his hardcore roots and showed another side of his constantly shifting skin
with his solo debut An Open Letter To The Scene.
From stripped-down acoustic meditations like the album's title track to Schreifels' psychedelic-tinged
cover of Agnostic Front's "Society's Sucker" and an intricately arranged version
of his CIV Classic "Don't Gotta Prove It," An Open Letter To The Scene is arguably the first
project Schreifels has ever recorded that manages to incorporate all of his diverse influences and
recontextualize them into a cohesive whole.1. Arthur Lee's Lullaby

Formed in 1991, Sacramento California's far blazed a trail for a generation of alternative rock bands over their 8 year career, garnering critical acclaim at home and abroad by combining heartfelt, dynamic, vocals with a more streamlined musical approach than their contemporaries in the Pacific Northwest. The brainchild of Jonah Matranga (OneLineDrawing, New End Original) and Shaun Lopez (Rival Schools, Crosses), far released their cult-classic major label debut Tin Cans With Strings to You via Epic/Immortal in April of 1996 bringing a maturity and sensitivity heretofore unheard among their contemporaries and paving a path for bands like Biffy Clyro, Coheed & Cambria and Thursday by adding a refreshing emotional muscle to unfettered, driving rock songs.
Immediately met with critical acclaim, Tin Cans With Strings to You introduced far to a national audience via an aggressive marketing campaign and touring schedule with the likes of Incubus and Deftones, bringing their unique band of emotional rock to arenas across the nation. In the years that have past, the long out of print classic Tin Cans With Strings to You has grown to an mythological status and a touchstone moment for alternative rock in
the 1990's and beyond.
Tin Cans With Strings To You, is available on vinyl for the very first time through srcvinyl.

Infinite Search (Pure Pleasure)
With John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, and Jack DeJohnette, this group rivaled the best fusion bands of the day. It must have been an intimidating challenge for a young Czech bassist to lead such a group on his debut album as a frontman, especially since he composed five of the six tracks. Recorded in late 1969, roughly the same time as the historic Bitches Brew, and the year before Vitous began a stint with the innovative Weather Report, this was trend-setting fusion. It's produced by Herbie Mann, for whom Vitous played on such albums as Memphis Underground and Stone Flute.
Miroslav's first album; superb even in the 21st century. If you are interested in finding out about the beginnings of 'jazz-rock fusion' this record is absolutely crucial. DeJohnette and Mclaughlin both had something to prove at the time and it shows. Vitous had won a scholarship to Boston's Berklee school of music but on this evidence, he didn't need it at all and probably scared the heck out of the teaching staff before he left to go with Herbie Mann, the occasional Miles gig, and the album sessions with Shorter and Zawinul that led to Weather Report. A brilliant and influential debut from a prodigious talent; buy this one!

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.1. Freedom Jazz Dance
