    Nothing Can Hurt Me (Soundtrack)

    2011's RSD saw an Omnivore vinyl reissue of the "test pressing" of Big Star's 1975 swansong Third, meticulously recreated right down to the master tape box and tracking sheets. Early in 2012, the band's frontman Alex Chilton was celebrated via the label's release of Free Again: The 1970 Sessions. Now, Omnivore is handling the soundtrack to the Magnolia Pictures documentary Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, and it will premiere as a RSD-exclusive yellow double vinyl edition limited to 4,000 copies worldwide. The 2012 SXSW Film Festival selection tells the story of the ultimate cult band, a group that never saw any considerable commercial success but influenced an entire generation of pop musicians. Nothing Can Hurt Me chronicles Alex Chilton's ascent to fame


    As lead singer of The Box Tops through the recording of Big Star's three albums, to the 1978 death of Chilton's collaborator Chris Bell.


    The 21 previously unreleased tracks on the soundtrack's four vinyl sides encompass vintage unissued mixes, alternate takes, demos, and new mixes made for the motion picture of Big Star, Chilton and Bell songs. The soundtrack includes 21 previously unheard period mixes, new mixes made specifically for the film, and alternate takes and demos.

    The Wonderful World Of Jazz (Pure Pleasure)

    There is nothing hurried about this disc. That said, the music is focused and will stretch your mind. Lewis employed masterful melodic improvisers here: Paul Gonsalves, Eric Dolphy, Jim Hall among others. Listen to Body And Soul as it builds powerfully and the soloists explore every possible melodic theme, where the quiet power of these master musicians is almost too much to take. Listen to I Remember Clifford where the players are essentially the MJQ with Jim Hall replacing Milt Jackson. This set swings, but oh-so-elegantly. Just like Mr. Lewis. - S.C.Berry


    Whether you're an old-time jazz afficionado or new to the genre, this album is essential. In my opinion, Lewis' lovely solo on Body & Soul makes his version virtually definitive - 15 minutes of bliss. The rest of the album, particularly Afternoon In Paris, is at the same level. Wonderful is the perfect title for this record. - E Barrios

    Musicians:



    • John Lewis (piano)

    • Eric Dolphy (alto saxophone)

    • James Rivers (bassoon)

    • Paul Gonsalves (tenor saxophone)

    • Herb Pomeroy (trumpet)

    • Gunther Schuller (french horn)

    • Jim Hall (guitar)

    • George Duvivier (bass)

    • Connie Kay (drums)

    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.

    The Great American Songbook (Pure Pleasure)

    This is a gem of an album and one of my favorites by McRae. It was recorded live for Atlantic Records at Donte's Club in Los Angeles on November 6, 1971, and released the following year.


    What I love is not only the choice of songs but the sound quality and the performance itself. The set not only contains established standards by Ellington, Cole Porter and the other greats, but some new (at the time) material. Including Burt Bacharach's They Long To Be Close To You in the set was a wise decision in my opinion. It deserves to be a standard. Of course, there is the obligatory Billie Holiday song that McRae would include in all of her performances. On this album it's I Cried For You, which was one of Billie's first recordings in 1936.


    The sound quality is superb. The engineer managed to capture not only the energy from the live performance, but the richness of the ensemble backing McRae. Indeed, the musicians backing her are perfect for the material: Jimmy Rowles on piano (who wrote the Ballad of Thelonious Monk), Joe Pass on guitar, Chuck Domanico on bass and Chuck Flores on drums.


    If you love hearing some of the best songs from the Great American Songbook performed by a master this album will delight you. There is a cohesiveness to the album that earns kudos from the production team as well as the performers. Interestingly McRae and her ensemble performed 32 songs the night that this was recorded. One can only speculate as to why a volume 2 wasn't released. Regardless, this is - in my opinion - some of McRae's best live material. - Mike Tarrani


    Musicians:



    • Carmen McRae (vocal, piano)

    • Joe Pass (guitar)

    • Jimmy Rowles (piano)

    • Chuck Domanico (bass)

    • Chuck Flores (drums)

    Watch Dogs

    Following on from the phenomenal success of their RSD release of FAR CRY 3: BLOOD DRAGON's, Invada partner with Ubisoft Music and dive once again into the world of video game soundtracks with the release of Brian Reitzell's musical score to the highly-anticipated WATCH_DOGS. Full of infectious beats and atmospheric, retro-futuristic synths, the score is a further achievement from Reitzell, who has previously written music for drama series HANNIBAL as well as working on multiple scores with director Sofia Coppola. To represent the varied challenges of the game, Reitzell brings an eclectic feel to the score, with thumping beats and off-kilter melodies of the club scene juxtaposed with the more ethereal and atmospheric synth and guitar, evoking the music of Vangelis and Brian Eno - ideal for a post-noir cyberpunk game.
