    A highly sought-after RCA shaded dog Living Stereo title, the performance and sonics found within rate a 10/10. A must have - the dynamics are monstrous! Whichever other Respighi tone poem recordings you ultimately purchase, you MUST own this one. Since the early '60s it has been the standard by which all others have been judged, and in terms of both sound and performance, it has never really been surpassed. The final march of Pines is simply incredible: Thundering bass drum, crashing cymbals and gongs, bellowing brass - nobody since has brought the whole thing off with the same combination of excitement and discipline.

    With Us

    The Burning of Rome's style can not be forced into any known genre without taking shortcuts and over looking its originality. Imagine a Gothic band collides with a Jewish Carnival (if there's such a thing), the result would be The Burning of Rome. Its dark tones and circus like melodies intermingle into one spontaneous, yet entertaining work of musicianship. They hail from the San Diego area.




    Blistering live shows and melodic hooks. Blending gypsy punk, dance and rock into a mind-bending stew, this is music for the new world.The thrillingly eerie, impossibly fun five-piece ensemble The Burning of Rome will unleash their musical mosaic debut studio album on indie fiends far and wide. WITH US explodes into ears on September 18th, 2012. Nominated for Best Alternative in the 2012 San Diego Music Awards, the band is leaving a cult of believers in their wake. WITH US will galvanize even the most disparaged souls.




    "A lot is riding on this new record." Adam Traub checks in by phone about his band the Burning of Rome and their new disc. "Kind of everything. We've got a good relationship with our label (Surfdog Records.) I'm treating it like it's our chance to break out. Everything came together at the same time - the booking agent, the label, and the publicist. It's sink or swim time."

    Year Of The Ox

    The Burning of Rome have been described as merging the pop sensibility of The Flaming Lips, the atmosphere of Brian Eno, and rock edge of Muse with poetic lyrics that recall the curiosity of Carl Sagan. They put on an eerie and electrifying live show full of anthemic choruses, searing guitars and a driving rhythm section--all with a tinge of the macabre

    Regicide

    The blasphemous Italian death metal quartet HOUR OF PENANCE continues to pull no punches on its sixth album, Regicide. The title for the follow-up to 2012's acclaimed Sedition is defined as the act of killing a monarch, and its venomous, anti-authoritarian blasts of brutality - recorded at Rome's famous 16th Cellar Studio (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Eyeconoclast) - sees the group at its fiercest.

    Cabin By The Sea

    Formed in 2003 out of Huntington Beach, CA, The Dirty Heads combine an intriguing mix of hip-hop, reggae and alternative rock with a sunny California swagger. The band released their debut album, Any Port In A Storm in 2008, which features the hit track Lay Me Down, a song that spent eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard alternative chart, more than any single that year by any artist. The single was certified gold. In 2010, Rolling Stone touted The Dirty Heads as the year's 'Best New Bands.'


    Cabin By The Sea maintains the diversity from their first album, roaming from sunny acoustic pop (Cabin By The Sea) to hip-hop with mariachi horns (Disguise) and feel-good reggae (Day By Day, Your Love). The album's defining trait? An insistence on positivity and good vibes, a philosophy summed up nicely by the single, Spread Too Thin. Features guest appearances by Kymani Marley, Rome and Matisyahu.

    Low in High School (Clear Vinyl)

    Pressed On Clear Vinyl


    LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL will be Morrissey's first studio album since
    2014 and his debut for BMG. The album will see BMG partnering
    with Morrissey on the new release and on the launch of his new
    label, Etienne Records. LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL was recorded at
    La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at Ennio Morricone's
    Forum Studios. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who
    has worked with The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes to
    name a few).


    Morrissey's talent for combining political statements and beautiful
    melodies is more prevalent than ever on LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL,
    capturing the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world.


    Rising to prominence as frontman of The Smiths, Morrissey went
    on to forge an even more successful career as a solo artist, with
    all ten of his solo efforts landing in the Top 10 on the UK album
    charts, including 3 entries at the #1 position. Releasing his debut
    solo album Viva Hate back in 1988, he has since released a
    number of critically acclaimed follow-ups including Kill Uncle and
    Your Arsenal, and hugely successful comeback album You Are the
    Quarry after a five year hiatus in 2004.

    Swim Team

    Music thrives on freedom. Without boundaries or blueprints, songs not only come to life, but last for a very long time to come.


    Dirty Heads' sixth full-length offering, SWIM TEAM [Five Seven Music], finds the group at its most free. The Orange County, CA quintet-Jared "Dirty J" Watson [co-lead vocals], Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell [co-lead vocals, guitar], Jon Olazabal [percussion], Matt Ochoa [drums], and David Foral [bass]-traffic between alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock with the same spirit and spark that's powered them since the beginning.


    As a result, the hooks naturally became bigger, the experimentation got bolder, and the smoke blazed brighter


    "We've put in so much hard work over the years that we have the freedom to do whatever we want now," affirms Jared. "Making the new record, I re-fell in love with everything about being in this band: writing music, playing shows, having fun, and where we're at. We spent every day not only working on songs, but laughing our asses off. What other people said didn't matter. The rules of being a proper songwriter and all of that bullshit didn't matter. If something felt good, we left it in there. It was so cool to get back to that feeling. Creating music was completely free. It was just fucking fun!"


    For the better part of 15 years, Dirty Heads have quietly worked towards this point. In 2008, they emerged with the fan favorite full-length debut, Any Point In A Storm. Signature single "Lay Me Down" achieved an RIAA gold certification and clinched #1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart for 11 weeks-a record run for that year. 2014 saw Sound of Change debut at #8 on the Billboard Top 200, garner acclaim from the likes of Esquire, and vault "My Sweet Summer" to the top of Alternative Radio. Most recently, 2016's self-titled Dirty Heads went Top 15 on the Top 200 and spawned the smash "That's All I Need," which racked up over 10.5 million Spotify streams and counting. Noisey summed up the album best as, "Killer." Simultaneously, they remain one of the world's most engaging and exhilarating live acts, selling out sheds coast to coast.


    During early 2017, the group started writing songs with no expectations or plans and soon found themselves working on what would become SWIM TEAM. That boundless environment immediately fostered inspiration.


    "We had some time off, and we were like, 'We might as well get in the studio and see what happens'," recalls Duddy. "In doing that, we were able to come up with some really good ideas. We didn't have any pressure to put out new music. It's a lot more ambient and simple. We went heavier on the hip-hop, which I love. After the first song, we agreed to just finish a record. We were all inspired."


    In order to capture those moments, Dirty Heads handpicked a team of collaborators-Jonas Jeberg [Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo], "Lay Me Down" partner-in-crime Rome [Enrique Iglesias] of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye West], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score-and recorded between Los Angeles and Orange County.


    "On the last album, it was like a mad speed dating rush with a bunch of producers to see who worked best," says Jared. "We had never done that before, and it was cool. It was a different vibe, studio, and guy every day. There are only a few producers on SWIM TEAM. The only new guys were HEAVY, and we hit it off immediately. We were molding and mutating what Dirty Heads are but with something new. We wanted to create songs we hadn't heard before."


    That brings us to the first single "Vacation." Produced by Jeberg, "Vacation" sways from bright sun-soaked piano and booming horns into an unshakable and hashtaggable chant, "Hey, I'm on vacation every single day cuz I love my occupation. Hey, I'm on vacation, if you don't like your life then you should go and change it."


    "We spent eight years in a van, worked hard, and now we're here," says Duddy. "It's almost like a vacation now."


    "I want 'Vacation' to speak to people out there who have paid their dues and love their jobs," adds Jared. "For those who don't enjoy what they do every day, it sends a message that, 'It's not too late to do something else.' If you're not happy, life is way too fucking short to hang around and do things you don't love. We're blessed to do something we're passionate about. We hope you feel the same!"


    Working with HEAVY, the emotional "Celebrate" volleys from vulnerable verses into confessional raps and a heart-wrenching refrain about being away from home. It's a classic pop ballad Dirty Heads-style with the power to resonate amongst listeners everywhere.


    "It strikes a chord for those of us who travel a lot and leave friends and families at home," explains Duddy. "We miss so much on the road. We're humans. We have wives. We have kids. We're happy to do what we love, but at the same time we miss our loved ones."


    Then there's "High Tea," which tows the line between 1940s-inspired crooning and grimy East Coast rhyme gymnastics like The Ink Spots guesting on Paul's Boutique.


    "That's my favorite song we've ever written," beams Jared. "The melody was super catchy, and there's an old school guitar part. We juxtapose those mellow, airy, and ethereal elements with hard-hitting hip-hop. We were drinking these weed kombuchas at the time," he laughs.


    In the end, SWIM TEAM represents Dirty Heads at their most dynamic, diverse, and definitive.


    "When you hear it, I just want you to walk away thinking, 'Damn, that sounds like Dirty Heads'," concludes Duddy.


    Jared leaves off, "I want you to feel the same way I did making it. Join this weird, odd, and wonderful secret society we've created over the past fifteen years. You're part of it now. Welcome to the team."

    The Lost Broadcast 1996

    Live FM Broadcast Recorded In Rome, Italy - July 1996

    Limited To 500 Copies

    Anyone alive during the 1990s is aware of the unstoppable musical force that was Alanis Morissette during that decade. Having been a Gold & Platinum-selling teen dance-pop sensation back in her native Canada, her first two domestic-only albums - Alanis (1991) and Now Is The Time (1992) produced a number of Top 40 singles. The show included here, recorded in Rome, Italy and broadcast live over local FM radio in July of 1996, perfectly demonstrates the singer's signature mezzo-soprano at its best. With a setlist made up largely of alternative versions of tracks from Jagged Little Pill, this double LP release illustrates why this exceptionally talented artist became such a runaway success, seemingly overnight.

    Trout Steel

    The first artist-sanctioned reissue of iconoclastic English-born, Rome-based folk and experimental music legend Mike Cooper's classic 1970 album, this remastered version of Trout Steel presents a heady homebrew of lap steel and slide blues traditions, avant-jazz group improvisations, and studio explorations that presaged Cooper's adventurous work for decades to come. Cooper was forging connections between folk and experimental musics long before America got New or Weird. - Keith MolinÉ of Pere Ubu, for The Wire.

    Chet Is Back

    Recorded in Rome, Italy at RCA's studios, Chet Is back! is the 1962 studio album by the undisputed master of the trumpet, Chet Baker. Backed by a group of up-and-coming European jazz musicians, which included Belgian saxophonist Bobby Jaspar, Belgian guitarist Rene Thomas, Italian pianist Amedeo Tommasi, French bassist Benoit Quersin, and Swiss drummer Daniel Humair, according to critics Chet Baker may have never sounded better.


    The album features compositions by other jazz musicians like Thelonious Monk's Well, You Needn't, Charlie Parker's Barbados and Sonny Rollins' Pent Up House. The album also includes an original composition by Amedeo Tommasi entitled Ballata in forma di blues. Ballads are featured as well, including the classic Academy Award-winning Over the Rainbow.

    Complete Communion

    Not counting a couple of sessions he co-led with John Coltrane and Albert Ayler, Complete Communion was the first album Don Cherry recorded as a leader following his departure from the Ornette Coleman Quartet. It was also one of the earliest showcases for the Argentinian tenor saxophonist Gato Barbieri, who Cherry discovered during a stay in Rome. While the music on Complete Communion was still indebted to Coleman's concepts, Cherry injected enough of his own personality to begin differentiating himself as a leader. He arranged the original LP as two continuous side-long suites, each of which incorporated four different compositions and was recorded in a single take. In practice, this meant that several melodic themes popped up over the course of each side; all the musicians free-associated off of each theme, engaging in intense, abstract dialogues before moving on to the next. As the album's title suggests, every member of the group not only solos, but shares the total space selflessly. Bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Ed Blackwell both play extremely active roles, especially Grimes, who solos powerfully and sometimes carries the main riffs. Often the music sounds more like a conversation, as opposed to a solo with support, because the musicians make such intelligent use of space and dynamics, and wind up with a great deal of crackling, volatile interplay as a result. The leader remains recognizably himself, and his burnished tone is a nice contrast with Barbieri's fiery approach; for his part, Barbieri's playing has a lot of speechlike inflections, and he spends a lot of time in the upper register of his horn, which makes him sound quite similar to Ornette at times. As a whole, the project comes off remarkably well, establishing Cherry as an avant-garde force to be reckoned with in his own right.

    Strange Weekend (Awaiting Repress)

    Strange Weekend is Porcelain Rafts debut record, yet in many ways its his 156th. Somewhere in New York, Rome, or maybe London, there is a suitcase full of tapes, minidiscs and CDs, days and days worth of music, all of it the result of Mauro Remiddis 27 years of travels across Europe, from his native Italy to London; of caravaning with the Berlin Youth Circus playing traditional gypsy Klezmer music; of reinterpreting traditional music in North Korea; and of a stint playing piano for an Off Broadway tap dance show.


    Amazingly, Strange Weekend, with deep roots in so many times and places, is an album that beautifully captures the fleeting right now. Remiddis interest in movement, about capturing a momentary now en route to the next, is apparent; postcards and polaroids of buildings and faces from the street flicker past. The projects genesis lies in this visual imagery. Over the past year, Remiddi has compiled a catalogue of images, gathered from the various nooks and crannies of the internet, that have served as notes, inspiration, context and a map for Porcelain Rafts music.


    Remiddis androgynous vapor of a voice weaves like a ghost between Nick Gilder and The Alessi Brothers, Julee Cruise and Judee Sill. In more contemporary terms, Porcelain Raft stands confidently on a high hill between the sounds of M83 and Beach House. Lead track Drifting In and Out is loping and anthemic; gauzy and chiming. Shapeless and Gone follows with a heavy strum reminiscent of Cosmic Dancer, full of mood and style without all the wearying excesses and feathered boas. Porcelain Rafts thesis statement hits when side-B kicks off with Unless You Speak From Your Heart. Remiddis enigmatic vocals carrying a hook so simple that you might think you sang it first; keys and bass that might make the needle jump off of your turntable; and a sense of raw sincerity that has come to trademark Remiddis songs is what ultimately resonates.


    And here, the myriad travels crystallize into something visceral; you may not be able to see the visuals Remiddi holds so dear, but you can feel them throughout Strange Weekend, and they stay with you as you travel on. Strange Weekend might have been made in a small place (a Brooklyn basement, in fact), but it is huge dream-pop, with melodies and synths billowing out in all directions.

    ...Little Broken Hearts

    White Colored Vinyl


    Little Broken Hearts is the stunning and musically diverse new break-up album from Norah Jones and fifth full-length of her storied career. The 12-song set was produced by Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) and features original tracks co-written by Jones and Burton. The album is preceded by the lead single Happy Pills which ushers in a parade of sunshiny hooks and surprised both Jones and Burton from the moment they wrote it: "We didn't know if it fit on the record. But I couldn't stop singing it, and neither could Brian. explains Jones. Eventually we decided it was too much fun, it had to be there."


    In addition to Jones and Burton, the album includes contributions from Blake Mills, Gus Seyffert, Joey Waronker, Heather McIntosh, the Sonus Quartet, Dan Elkin, Jonathan Hischke, Todd Monfalcone and Kennie Takahashi. Little Broken Hearts' artwork draws inspiration from the vintage movie posters that adorn Burton's Los Angeles studio and is loosely based on the poster for the 1965 Russ Meyer film Mudhoney.


    Little Broken Hearts' is the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the music world's most consistently intriguing singer/songwriters. Jones first emerged on the world stage 10 years ago with the 2002 release of Come Away With Me, her self-described "moody little record" that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing synthetic pop music of the time. Come Away With Me has just become the 10th best-selling album of the Soundscan era and has sold 25 million copies worldwide.


    Since then, Jones has released three more critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums with Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007) and The Fall (2009), as well as two albums with her country collective The Little Willies.


    The 2010 compilation Featuring Norah Jones showed her to possess an incredibly versatile voice by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock and the Foo Fighters. Jones previously collaborated with Danger Mouse on his acclaimed 2011 album Rome, a valentine to classic Italian film score music that also featured Jack White.

    ...Little Broken Hearts

    Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio from the original source recordings!


    200-gram audiophile vinyl double-LP pressing by Quality Record Pressings. Gatefold, tip-on jackets on heavy cardboard stock, deluxe high quality!


    Part of Analogue Productions' reissue of the Norah Jones' solo catalog, featuring the individual albums Come Away With Me, Feels Like Home, Not Too Late, The Fall and Little Broken Hearts. Each album will also be featured in an exclusive LP box set to come that will include Norah's Covers album!


    Norah Jones' Little Broken Hearts was created in collaboration with producer Brian Danger Mouse Burton, best known as the producing ace for Gnarls Barkley with singer Cee Lo Green. Jones and Danger Mouse wrote all of the material for the album together at the producer's studio in Los Angeles, and the duo performed all of the instruments themselves. This is their second time working together - Jones previously appeared as a vocalist on Rome, Danger Mouse's collaboration with Italian composer Daniele Luppi. Though Little Broken Hearts is the result of a partnership between Jones and Danger Mouse, the record will be credited only to her.


    The album's sound ranges from experimental chamber serenades to stark, electronic-embellished confessions. It's obviously very different than anything Norah's ever done, Burton says. I don't know what people will think - I hope they like it, and she doesn't lose a bunch of fans.


    I'd never gone in with nothing and wrote songs from scratch, and I'd never played bass before on a record, Jones told Rolling Stone. I was out of my comfort zone - but I was comfortable because we're friends.


    Adds Burton, The best thing was having just the two of us on those first sessions, not a whole band. Norah had as many, if not more, great ideas than I did.


    One of the boldest departures is Take It Back, which features fuzzed-out guitars and spooky, distorted vocals. I never knew how to get weird sounds, Jones says. It was all about finding a balance between those effects and making sure my voice was clear and sounded like me.


    In its own quiet way, Little Broken Hearts hews closer to heartbreak classics like Marvin Gaye's Here, My Dear than to anything in Jones' back catalog, Rolling Stone reports, This time, I've been way less concerned with self-editing, Jones says. I'm not sad, but there's a lot of hurt in there. And it felt great to say what I felt and put it down on tape. Doing that made me so happy! This album is all about saying things that needed to be said.

    MILANO

    MILANO is the new album from Emmy nominated Italian composer, producer and artist, Daniele Luppi, along with New York rock band Parquet Courts.


    MILANO is a concept album, complete with songs that are fictionalized stories about misfits, fashionistas, outcasts and junkies in mid-1980s Milan. Daniele teamed up with Parquet Courts and Yeah Yeah Yeah's vocalist, Karen O, to help deliver his vision of an emerging youth culture struggling to be heard amidst the rapid gentrification of old Milan.


    The first offering from the album was the track Soul and Cigarette, a jaunty, springy tune belies its more sinister, saddened backstory of artistic struggle. Andrew Savage of Parquet Courts describes Soul and Cigarette as a tribute to Alda Merini, one of Milan and Italy's most renowned poets, yet unfortunately not as heralded internationally. He says, I was reading her and trying to imagine Milan as she saw and experienced it. Her story is one of great suffering and her verse is often quite painful, an important juxtaposition from the cosmopolitan Milan we associate with luxury and excess.


    The second track released from MILANO was Talisa featuring Karen O. Talisa is a love letter to Talisa Soto, the model and actress who was a dear friend and muse of revered designer Gianni Versace. Celebrated for her model-esque figure and striking beauty, Talisa appeared in numerous Versace ad campaigns at the height of the brand's fabled existence. Talisa's comely face was regularly plastered on billboards across Milan and she was a steady presence on the catwalks during Milan Fashion Week. Says Daniele, For Talisa's lyrics, Karen and I dreamed up a fantasy photoshoot, a la Antonioni's Blow Up. We imagined a scenario where Talisa is on set in a fantastical couture creation and Gianni himself is the photographer. We wanted to capture the excitement, vibrancy and fast lane life of Milano in the 80s, draped in fashion and models, as clichÉ as that may seem.


    MILANO is the unofficial follow up to Luppi and Danger Mouse's 2011 album Rome, a love letter to classic Italian film scores, with Jack White and Norah Jones.

    Ravel - Sheherazade / Berlioz - Les Nuits D'Ete (Speakers Corner)

    At the time when Ravel set down ShÉhÉrazade, and although he had already composed such works as Pavane pour une Infante defunte and Jeux d'eau, - regarded today as excellent - the young composer was still struggling for recognition. Five times he tried to win the prestigious Prix de Rome, France's highest musical award, but barely achieved more than limited acclaim.



    Ravel's provocative assertion that he didn't follow any particular musical direction, but was an anarchist is reflected in his free, wonderfully interwoven composition ShÉhÉrazade. A touch of the Orient is entwined with late-romantic harmony and an impressionistic, modern brilliance, whose depth calls for and merits repeated listening.



    Ravel shares the lot of a misunderstood genius with Hector Berlioz. Written in 1832, his cycle Les Nuits d'EtÉ, with its pulsating and arietta-like but also morbid and ghostly songs, provide a wonderful example of a composition from the French Romantic era. The present superb performance was highly acclaimed by producer and author G. A. Eckle, who stated »RÉgine Crespin is the embodiment of quality when it comes to French repertoire in her category




    Recording: September 1963 at Victoria Hall, Geneva (Switzerland), by James Lock

    About Speakers Corner



    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    RCA Living Stereo Classical LPs - The Gold Standard For Top Quality Orchestral Performance And Sound!


    Remastered And Cut At 33 1/3 RPM By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound


    Lacquers Plated By Gary Salstrom And Pressed On 200-Gram Vinyl At Quality Record Pressings!


    Grade A. The exceedingly rare 1s/1s pressing of this disc has been celebrated and sought after ever since Carol B. Kessler wrote her famous article in TAS on the best RCAs (she ranked the 1s/1s Pines the #3 RCA of all-time). If you don't have a 1s/1s pressing, you will doubtlessly find this remastering sensational. Since I do have a 1s/1s, I'd have to say that there are aspects of the 1s/1s that are marginally superior to the Analogue Productions reissue - and vice versa. Though beautiful, string tone doesn't seem quite as silken on the Kassem reissue as it does on the RCA original; on the other hand, the staggeringly powerful bass on The Pines of the Appian Way (replete with gong and organ) retains all of its thunder and then some on the Analogue Productions re-pressing with, once again, a fair measure of tape-like ease and authority. (As with The Reiner Sound, the base is a little murky in spots, probably the results of mic preamp overload. In any event that occasional murkiness is also present on the 1s/1s and the Classic reissue.) - Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound.com, June 11, 2013


    A highly sought-after RCA shaded dog Living Stereo title, the performance and sonics found within rate a 10/10. A must have - the dynamics are monstrous! Whichever other Respighi tone poem recordings you ultimately purchase, you MUST own this one. Since the early '60s it has been the standard by which all others have been judged, and in terms of both sound and performance, it has never really been surpassed. The final march of Pines is simply incredible: Thundering bass drum, crashing cymbals and gongs, bellowing brass - nobody since has brought the whole thing off with the same combination of excitement and discipline.

    Sound Of Change (Out Of Stock)

    The Sound of Change can't come from external forces, it has to emanate from within. For Dirty Heads, evolution beyond their reggae-rock roots has developed over time and is manifested on their new album "Sound of Change." Due out summer 2014 via Five Seven Music, the album boasts some of the groups' most diverse and ambitious work to date. "Sound of Change" takes a literal meaning with the production of this album, as the band links up with Grammy award winning producer Supa Dups (Nina Sky, Bruno Mars), Buddah Shampoo (Ty Dolla $ign), Niles (of hip hop duo, The Cataracs), Ward 21 (311, Major Lazer reggae collaborators) and long-time friend and collaborator, Rome (Sublime).


    The feel-good vibe associated with their sound was not forgotten. Sonically, "Sound of Change" amps up the groundwork laid by previous albums. Fine-tuned alternative choruses work harmoniously with hip-hop influenced production that seams the songs together. Universal themes of compassion, reflection and happiness are at the core of "Sound of Change." "We wanted the songs on this album to touch on the things we deeply care about and the people we are inside" front man Jared (Dirty J) Watson asserts, "but then we want to address the other side - when the weekend comes and we need to let go and just rage." Who can't relate to that feeling?


    Vocalist/Guitarist Dustin Bushnell (Duddy B) is constantly looking to connect the dots between the live show with the album tracks, often mentally mapping out the live elements as the songs are being recorded. For the touring cycle surrounding the release "Sound of Change" the band plans to bring a live show that will energetically compliment each new track. Dirty Heads have racked up their miles bringing that live experience to fans across the globe for over a decade. "Now that our lives are touring we get to see the world," both Watson and Bushnell agree, "we're taking stories and vibes from around the world and making this album is the culmination of that."


    The band's breakout 2008 album "Any Port In The Storm" included the chart-topping hit track "Lay Me Down" which features current Sublime frontman, Rome. The track had an incredible run for eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts, laying a solid foundation for their follow up sophomore album "Cabin By The Sea" which was released in 2012. Dirty Heads then began their musical metamorphosis with their 2013 acoustic album "Home - Phantoms Of Summer," allowing time for their metamorphosis embodied in "Sound of Change." Their previous work featured contributions from talent such as Del The Funky Homosapien, Matisyahu, Rome (Sublime) and guitar legend Slash.


    "Sound of Change" is a melting pot of all the band members' experiences and musical persuasions, addressing both serious and lighthearted subject matter in their signature way. On the lighter side of the spectrum, "Burn Slow" (Produced by Rome, featuring rapper, Tech N9ne) showcases the hip-hop oriented side of the band. With anthemic choruses and a feel-good aura, Watson boasts the song is the perfect soundtrack for those times when you're "having a good time, going out with friends and realize that sometimes you just need to chill." The retro sound and sexy lyrics of "Hear You Comin," highlights Watson's soaring vocals in its hook. The first single, the metaphorical "My Sweet Summer" (produced by Niles from The Cataracs) is, in reality, a song for all seasons. An undeniable groove underlines the lyrical lament. The title track "Sound of Change" is the key manifestation of the artistic maturation of the band. "The world is always changing political and social outlooks and on a broader scale, look at the changes within yourself" Watson reflects, "the song is about embracing the change life is going to bring no matter what, because that change is inevitable." Though there is diversity on "Sound of Change," as a body of work, it is cohesive in a way only Dirty Heads can achieve.


    As a full six-piece unit, frontmen Watson and Bushnell are joined by keyboardist/vocalist Shawn Hagood, percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa and bassist David Foral. This lineup is hell-bent on grabbing new ears with "Sound of Change." Their own journey can be heard within the album- all you have to do is sit back and listen.
