    Brooklyn soul singer Lou Johnson was a singer and pianist who actively
    recorded between the years of 1962-1972. As a teen he sang in gospel
    choirs and studied music at Brooklyn College.


    In 1962 Johnson signed with Bigtop Records, run by the Hi ll & Range
    publishing group located in the Brill Building. It was during this tenure that
    Johnson befriended the iconic songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and
    Hal David. They wrote his first three singles, "If I Never Get To Love You,"
    "You Better Let Him Go," and "Reach Out to Me." The first two songs failed
    to connect on the charts but the third reached #74 on the Billboard Hot
    100 in 1963. Unfortunately Bigtop folded just as the song began to climb
    the charts and Johnson's success with the song was hampered.


    He then signed to Big Hill and continued his association with Bacharach/
    David. In 1964, his original version of "Always Something There to Remind
    Me" with backup vocals by Doris Troy, Dee Dee Warwick and Cissy Houston
    reached #49 in the US charts. Lou also recorded original versions of other
    Bacharach/David songs that went on to become bigger hits for artists such
    as Dionne Warwick and Adam Faith.


    Johnson recorded two albums for Atlantic Records, one of which, Sweet
    Southern Soul, is our featured voting title here. Released on Atlantic's
    subsidiary, Cotillion in 1969, it was produced by Jerry Wexler and Tom
    Dowd at Muscle Shoals Studios. Featuring the Muscle Shoals band and
    including songs by Curtis Mayfield, Eddie Hinton and Don Covay, it had all
    the elements of a classic Atlantic soul album of the era but failed to garner
    much attention. His final full length, With You in Mind, was produced by
    Allen Toussaint for Stax's Volt label but it too sunk like a stone. Johnson
    later moved to Los Angeles and became a nightclub entertainer. Sweet
    Southern Soul is a classic crate digger record and would find a welcome
    home in any soul collector's library

    Score Of Multiple Award Winning Spin-Off Of Breaking Bad


    Score By Dave Porter


    Better Call Saul is a television crime drama series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It is a spin-off prequel of Gilligan's prior series Breaking Bad. Set in 2002, Better Call Saul follows the story of small-time lawyer Jimmy McGill, a lawyer and a former scam artist, who becomes involved with the criminal world, six years before his appearance on Breaking Bad as Saul Goodman.


    Like its predecessor, Better Call Saul has received critical acclaim. It has garnered several nominations, including fourteen Primetime Emmy Awards, seven Writers Guild of America Awards, five Critics' Choice Television Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award and two Golden Globe Awards. The series premiere held the record for the highest-rated scripted series premiere in basic cable history at the time of its airing.


    Dave Porter, the composer of the score, has also written the opening theme and complete score of Breaking Bad. For his work on Breaking Bad, Porter has won an ASCAP Award. The Better Call Saul score features songs from the first and second series.


    Strictly limited, the first 1,000 numbered copies of the Better Call Saul score are pressed on red vinyl. The package contains 2 printed inner sleeves with images of Jimmy, Nacho, and Mike. It also contains an exclusive 4-page booklet with additional pictures and liner notes. The etch on the D-side is a certified replica of Jimmy McGill's law degree he received from the University of American Samoa.

    C'est Chic


    Celebrate 35 Years Of Nile Rodgers & Chic!


    Impeccably Mastered From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Release Of This Legendary # 1 Pop, R&B & Dance Album!


    In the early seventies, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were playing in rock
    and soul bands across New York City and the east coast, meeting up with Tony Thompson along the way and forming the rudiments of what would become one of the most
    powerful and successful pop/r&b units ever known as Chic.


    By 1977, they sailed into the top rungs of the charts with their smash debut single
    Dance, Dance, Dance along with the killer funk of their first album simply titled Chic.


    A year later, their fortunes multiplied to the top of the charts with C'est Chic. The
    number one LP was chock full of hit singles, funk madness and probably some of the
    finest rock/funk/soul beats ever waxed in a studio. Featuring the huge chart toppers
    Le Freak and the super soul of I Want Your Love, Chic truly were at the top of their game
    around the world. Along with vocalists Alfa Anderson, Norma Jean Wright and future
    superstar Luther Vandross , Chic was the band of choice for party people, dance clubs
    and radio stations all over with this brilliant album.


    With star power tracks like Happy Man and the stellar instrumental fare of Savoir
    Faire, C'est Chic would become a staple at retail and sell over six million units during its
    first run at retail. Chic's importance is celebrated today as number one bands like Daft
    Punk have paid tribute and collaborated with the funk and dance groove master himself
    , Mr. Nile Rodgers.


    This classic album C'est Chic has been out of print on vinyl for decades .that is
    until now!


    Friday Music is very proud to announce The Chic Original Master Series with the
    first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of C'est Chic. Mastered impeccably by Joe
    "Soul Man" Reagoso from the original Atlantic Records tapes, this limited edition masterpiece is a perfect record for the audiophile medium and will be a much anticipated
    release for this holiday season.


    In addition to the wonderful grooves inside, we are also enclosing the original LP
    cover artwork restored faithfully to further enhance your Chic listening experience.
    More Chic is on the way too .Look for spectacular Chic 180 Gram Vinyl and

    Highlights From The Fun House Sessions (On Sale)

    Pressed On 180g, Multi-Color Vinyl And Pressed At Record Industry

    Each 2-LP Set Is Individually Numbered And Strictly Limited

    Comes In A Gatefold Tip-On Stoughton Sleeve With Brand New Artwork

    1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions was recorded at Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles and compiled from all thirteen reels of multi-track tape that held every note and snippet of studio dialogue. Twelve reels of tape were used during the original sessions, with the thirteenth reel having the takes that would be used on the studio album.

    This sprawling set which was originally aimed at the collector market would be challenging and cost prohibitive to reissue as a multi-disc vinyl box set. What is presented here is an attempt to assemble some of the best highlights from the Fun House Sessions on an officially-released 2LP set in high quality packaging with a sequence that hopefully proves to be an easier, and more casual listen.

    Included are some terrific alternate versions of Down on the Street,Loose, Dirt, Funhouse, 1970 and others, pulled from session reels 1,4, 6, 7, 9 and 11 and originally recorded on May 11, 12, 15, 18, 21 and 25 of 1970. Also notable is the inclusion of the 17+ minute version of L.A. Blues,titled as Freak, which encompasses the entire fourth side of this set and is the prime example of what makes the Fun House Sessions both loved and feared.


    This title is not eligible for further discount.

    Run-DMC

    Future archaeologists will discuss two periods in 1980s: before Run-DMC and after Run-DMC. It's no exaggeration to say that the group
    changed the course of music in the '80s, bringing the old-school of rap into the new with one simple piece of flat, black plastic.


    Coming up in the rap world of the early 1980s under the wing of Kurtis Blow (group manager Russell Simmons managed Blow, and Run
    was, at one time, a DJ known as "Son of Kurtis Blow") and Blow's bassist and burgeoning super-producer Larry Smith, the trio - Joseph
    "Run" Simmons, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels and Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell - learned from the best, but created their own path.


    1983 was the year that they first broke out. With only an Oberheim DMX drum program and some cuts by Jay, "Sucker M.C.s (Krush-Groove
    1)" was a shot across the bow to the slick, post-disco pocket rap had settled into. It was raw, pure swagger and it took both New Yorkers
    and music aficionados around the world by storm. The song's lyrics are a mandatory memorization assignment to this day by MCs learning
    their craft. "Two years ago, a friend of mine "


    The group's sound, which was laid out muscularly on Run-DMC, had a harder approach than their peers, thanks to producer Larry Smith's
    use of live musicians who laid down grooves but didn't soften the edges. Lyrically the group wasn't just about brags either, with songs like
    "Hard Times," "It's Like That" and "Wake Up" (the first two were singles). Run's and DMC's overlapping tag-team approach to lyricism was
    powerful and immensely influential.


    "Rock Box," another single and arguably the centerpiece of the album, was a nod to their hard edge, and a foreshadowing of their first
    worldwide smash, 1985's "King Of Rock." Jam Master Jay's DJ work was stellar, knowing exactly when to jump in and put listeners' ears in
    a headlock.


    The album was the first rap full-length to achieve Gold status, and as fans know, the group was just getting started - their next two LPs would
    take them to even higher status in the music world, critically and sales-wise. But this is where it all started, and it's a classic that still sounds
    fresh today as it did more than 30 years ago.

    Ministry is the legendary industrial metal band founded in 1981 by Al Jourgensen in Chicago. In its earliest days, the band began as a new wave synth pop group but in the mid-1980s ended up changing styles, signing to Sire Records and becoming one of the pioneers of industrial metal. In 1988, the band recorded their second album for Sire, The Land of Rape and Honey, which used synth, tape loops, drum machines, heavily distorted guitar and bass, and movie dialogue to great effect-furthering their success in the underground music scene. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in 1996. Bands such as Fear Factory, Linkin Park, Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails cite The Land of Rape and Honey as a major influence. Their follow up, The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, took a more hardcore guitar-driven direction and was supported by a tour from 1989-90 which was documented on the album In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up. The album peaked at #163 in the US and was certified Gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500k in 1995. Music critic Tom Moon included the album in his book, 1000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die, saying it "is one of the great works of industrial music" and is an influential album, "way ahead of its time."


    Ministry broke into the mainstream in 1991 with the hit "Jesus Built My Hotrod," which was co-authored by Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers (who also is featured doing guest vocals) and Michael Balch of Front Line Assembly. It was the key track off their fifth studio album released on Sire in 1992, commonly referred to as Psalm 69. The song "N.W.O." was nominated for the Grammy® Award for Best Metal Performance in 1993, but lost to Nine Inch Nails' "Wish." Psalm 69 is ranked #80 on Rolling Stone magazine's Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time list. It went platinum and peaked at #27 on the Billboard 200, paving the way for other industrial acts including Marilyn Manson and Orgy into the Billboard charts.


    Ministry has gone on to record up until their break up in 2008, although they announced a reunion in 2011 , released two more studio albums and are working on their fourteenth studio album set to release in 2018. They have been nominated for 6 Grammy® Awards. This will be the first time that their Greatest Fits album covering key tracks from the WB/Sire label years will be available on vinyl. No other Ministry greatest hits collection exists on vinyl in the market and this one would receive the typical high quality Run Out Groove treatment.

    The Magnificent Seven is a remake of the 1960s western film, which in turn was a remake of the 1954 Japanese classic film, Seven Samurai.


    As the town Rose Krick is put under the siege of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the residents enlist the help of seven outlaws. Headed by bounty hunter Sam Chisolm they ought to protect them while they prepare for the anticipated violent confrontation. However, upon meeting the town's residents, the Seven find themselves fighting for much more than money.


    The film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard and Haley Bennett.


    Multiple Award Winning composer James Horner was asked to write the film's score but died on June 22, 2015. Nearly a month after his death movie director Antoine Fuqua learned that James Horner had already started working on music for the film before filming commenced. Horner's friend and score producer Simon Franglen co-composed the score after Horner's death. This score will be the final James Horner score to be released posthumously.

    Solomon Burke helped to shape the sound of rhythm and blues as one of
    the founding fathers of soul music. He had a litany of hit singles in the
    1960s for Atlantic Records including "Cry to Me," "If You Need Me," "Down
    in the Valley," and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," to name a few.
    Atlantic Records' co-founder Jerry Wexler has referred to Burke as "the
    greatest male soul singer of all time" and it was reported that he signed a
    "handshake" deal with the label within ten minutes of originally entering
    Wexler's office. His signing helped to reinvigorate the label, as stars Bobby
    Darin and Ray Charles had just left.


    Drawing inspiration from gospel, jazz, country and blues-Burke developed
    his own unique style and was often called "The King of Rock 'n' Soul"
    earning him a wide bi-racial audience. Due to his spiritual background he
    refused to be classified as an R&B singer because of its labeled stigma
    by the church. During his almost six decades of performing, he released
    38 studio albums-selling at total 17 million-and had 35 charting singles
    including 26 that made the Billboard R&B charts.


    In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as a performer
    and has been ranked by Rolling Stone on their list of "100 Greatest
    Singers of All Time." Burke is one of the most important male vocalists in
    music history and has influenced legendary rockers such as the Rolling
    Stones, Elvis Costello, Van Morrison, the Animals and Tom Petty

    Good Nature

    Pressed On Colored Vinyl

    Frontman Austin Getz doesn't blink when asked to sum up Turnover's third full-length, Good Nature. Learning, he replies. This whole record is about learning. Opening your eyes to new things, going out- side of your comfort zone, and learning to grow into something new. The album's unique blend of musical and spiritual growth is immediately audible on the opening track, Super Natural, a late-summer idyll of intertwined guitar parts and laidback vocals. Listening to how the leisurely Nightlight Girl melts into a more propulsive selection like Breeze, and the way Good Nature flows together as a seamless whole, it's also evident that the foursome has been paying closer attention to how artists from earlier eras made full-length albums: the range of textures, tempos, and dynamics on Good Nature are influenced in part by bossa nova, cool jazz, electronic music, and psychedelic grooves. This influx of new influences and inspiration, navigated by Peripheral Vision producer Will Yip, results in the band's best album to date. Good Nature comes from a place of calm and contentment, nurtured by looking inward.

    The Scout 2 features a 1 7/8 thick aluminum platter (with a stainless steel damping plate) in place of the Scout's 1 3/8 acrylic platter.


    The result of mating a great platter to a simple good looking design! In only seven years, the VPI Scout has become the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! For 2009, we saw fit to bring some big improvements to its best-selling turntable. You may recognize the outboard motor and the plinth, but you will do a double take at the exquisite platter and tonearm.


    Every VPI Scout II comes standard with the JMW 9T! This incredible tonearm features a redesigned armtube that is tapered and filled with a proprietary damping material. This revolutionary design greatly reduces internal resonance, yielding a full and rich sound, with a vast soundstage and increased resolution and detail. The added mass also produces deeper bass response and fantastic compatibility with moving coil cartridges.


    For maximum stability and speed accuracy the platter is made from 1 7/8 thick machined 6061 aluminum and is attached to a nonmagnetic 303 stainless steel damping plate. The entire piece weighs in at an impressive 18 pounds! Because the aluminum is grounded to the steel, there is virtually no static buildup or sonic degradation. What's in the grooves is what comes out of your speakers.


    The VPI Scout II's plinth is made from 1 1/8 thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate giving a rigid, non-resonant plinth. The massive platter sits on chrome-hardened ball bearing held by a 60 Rockwell-hardened shaft, below which is a black delrin nut.


    The VPI Scout II generates absolutely no additional noise for a pristinely quiet spin. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt. This combination produces quiet yet stable running with extremely accurate speed. Speeds are 33 and 45 standard, while 78 is optional.

    The Scout 2 features a 1 7/8 thick aluminum platter (with a stainless steel damping plate) in place of the Scout's 1 3/8 acrylic platter.


    The result of mating a great platter to a simple good looking design! In only seven years, the VPI Scout has become the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! For 2009, we saw fit to bring some big improvements to its best-selling turntable. You may recognize the outboard motor and the plinth, but you will do a double take at the exquisite platter and tonearm.


    Every VPI Scout II comes standard with the JMW 9T! This incredible tonearm features a redesigned armtube that is tapered and filled with a proprietary damping material. This revolutionary design greatly reduces internal resonance, yielding a full and rich sound, with a vast soundstage and increased resolution and detail. The added mass also produces deeper bass response and fantastic compatibility with moving coil cartridges.


    For maximum stability and speed accuracy the platter is made from 1 7/8 thick machined 6061 aluminum and is attached to a nonmagnetic 303 stainless steel damping plate. The entire piece weighs in at an impressive 18 pounds! Because the aluminum is grounded to the steel, there is virtually no static buildup or sonic degradation.

    Tougher Than Leather

    Too many people sleep on Tougher Than Leather, Run-DMC's fourth album. But hear us out as we plead the case for this amazing LP.


    By 1988 there was a lot more competition in the rap game - Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions, Eric B. & Rakim, Ice-T and many more had given Hollis, Queens' prodigal sons lots of competition. But Joe, Darryl, and Jay were still at the top of their game, and hip-hop fans should never let this classic - chiefly produced by their Queens neighbor, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Davy D[MX] - get lost in their crates.


    For starters, the album's first single, "Run's House" b/w "Beats To The Rhyme" is arguably the most powerful one-two punch of the trio's career, showing contenders to the rap throne that they could still destroy a beat, tag-teaming with power at any speed. Not to be lost in the shuffle, fans were also reminded on both sides that Jam-Master Jay remained one of the world's best DJs, flexing the pinnacle of what would be called "turntablism" a decade later. Both songs show a musical telepathy between all three that has rarely been equaled.


    The second single, "Mary, Mary," driven by an infectious Monkees sample, took a different approach, shrewdly ensuring that pop fans who jumped on the Raising Hell bandwagon had something to chew on. But, like "Walk This Way," the song wasn't just bubblegum - there was an edge to it, and the lyrical gymnastics were very real. It wasn't selling out, it was allowing fans to buy in. "Papa Crazy," driven in concept and by a sample from the Temptations' "Papa Was A Rolling Stone," followed a similar pop-leaning path.


    Overall, the lyrical content on the album was a step up from the group's first three LPs. It's easy to infer, looking back, that they were feeling the heat from their younger competitors in the rap game. The genre was changing fast, and they were up to the challenge. On cuts like "Radio Station," they bring substance to the grooves, by attacking Black Radio for its continual denigration of rap. "Tougher Than Leather" reminds the world that they were still the Kings of Rock, with hard guitars to drive the point home. And "They Call Us Run-DMC" and "Soul To Rock And Roll" both bring things back to their early days, with sure-fire park jam rhymes and killer cuts.


    Tougher Than Leather, which went platinum up against a lot of competition, perfectly bookends the '80s output of one of the decade's most important groups. It encompasses the full range of the trio's capabilities and reminds us that Run-DMC should never be forgotten as both pioneers and party-rockers. And so, we say, long live Joe, Darryl, and Jay!

    Let 'Em Roll

    During the Blue Note 75th anniversary celebration the label released 100 essential Blue Note LPs and asked New York Times readers what titles they'd like to see make the list. This album is one of five new reissues that were hand-selected by Blue Note President, Don Was, based on New York Times reader recommendations.


    In an unusual setting for a groove/soul jazz setting, B3 organist extraordinaire big John Patton creates a band around himself that includes Grant Green, drummer Otis Finch, and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson. It's truly weird to think of vibes on a groove date, but the way Patton's understated playing works, and the way Green is literally all things to all players, Hutcherson's role is not only a clearly defined one, but adds immeasurably to both depth and texture on this date.


    What also makes this possible is the symbiotic relationship between Patton and Green. There is a double groove conscious swing happening on every track here, from the bluesed-out slip and slide of the title track which opens the record to a killer version of Hank Mobley's The Turnaround, which expands the blues vibe into solid soul territory because of Hutcherson's ability to play pianistically and slip into the funk groove whenever necessary. Green's deadly in his solo on the track, shimmering arpeggios through Patton's big fat chords and chunky hammering runs.


    Also notable are Patton's own tunes, the most beautiful of which is Latona, a floating Latin number with a killer salsa rhythm in 6/8. As Patton vamps through the chorus, Green slips in one of his gnarliest solos ever. It begins with a groove like run in the hard bop blues and then shoves itself into overdrive, capturing the cold sweat of a Bola Sete or Wes Montgomery in his groove years. But when Green goes for the harmonic edges, all bets are off: Hutcherson lays out, and he and Patton go running to the bridge and bring the melody back just in time to take it out.


    This is one of the least appreciated of Patton's records, and there's no reason for it; it is great.

    Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins, a true poet who invented most of his lyrics on the spot and never seemed to run out of new ideas, was a blues giant of post-war blues whose style was rooted in pre-war Texas traditions. While he cranked up his amp to fierce proportions when performing for his friends at Houston juke joints, producers who recorded him for the so-called folk-blues market usually insisted that he use an acoustic guitar for more "authentic" results. Either way, Lightnin' seldom made a bad record, and this June 4, 1963, session on which he played acoustic was among his finest, thanks much to the sensitive support of bassist Leonard Gaskin and drummer Herbie Lovelle, who did a remarkable job of following his irregular bar patterns and abrupt song endings.

    Superior Catholic Finger

    Starting with a random snippet of evangelist preaching isn't necessarily the newest of touches in music, but putting it at the beginning of a track called Monster Lust has its own appeal. Creed's second solo album was his conscious return to the more zoned-and-stoned style of Chrome, though given how there was a fair amount of that on X-Rated Fairy Tales it would be more accurate to say that on Finger Creed just decided to let everything run riot. Tempos are often more stretched out than before, effects are tweaked and then tweaked again; in short, it's everything that a lot of rock music both mainstream and underground in 1988 was generally avoiding. With new drummer Ted Preuss helping out with returning bassist Duran, Creed leads his merry men into another fantastic bout of aggro-death-science-fiction snarl. Creed's low, vicious voice perfectly suits his abrasive feedback and more, while the rhythm section can both pound out things in a metal-punk style or just go with the flow. Who Cares is one of the best in the latter vein, with heavily flanged drums mixing with the simple but effective basslines as Creed goes off with both guitar and distorted vocals. Thick blasts of feedback that fill up the mix in both rhythm and soloing often remain the way of things for Creed; Too Bad, with its quick, almost punky verses, is a great example of him at his most crazed. The title track is one of Creed's best, a slow-and-low number with another great taking-off-to-Mars solo from the band and some disturbing rumbles down deep in the bass. Sometimes things maybe get a bit lost along the way -- The Cookie Jar descends into some aimless bits before picking up the groove again -- but otherwise Creed once again is flying high.

    Call It What It Is

    Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals have reunited for Call It What It Is, their first record together in nine years.


    Call It What It Is is an incisive, bold, poetic statement that could only come from these long-time musical partners, one of popular music's most essential, cohesive and dynamic ensembles. The standout title track showcases Harper's unmatched ability to blend the personal and political. Invoking the names of Trayvon Martin, Ezell Ford, and Michael Brown over an agitated blues riff, Harper cuts to the quick: "There's good cops / bad cops / white cops / black cops / call it what it is / Murder." The genre-spanning collection contains many highlights including the sun-kissed groove of Shine and the album's swaggering lead track When Sex Was Dirty.


    It had been seven years since Ben Harper last played a show with the Innocent Criminals, so when the time came to reunite for a live tour in 2015, the band-percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates, and guitarist Michael Ward-quickly discovered that Harper had more in mind than simply revisiting the group's prodigious song catalogue. In fact, Harper had been quietly amassing material for a new record and the first recording sessions were scheduled to begin even before the rehearsals for their triumphant four-night sold-out reunion run at the Fillmore in San Francisco last March.


    "I thought we would be more energized and revitalized by thinking outside the box and starting with new material in the studio before we dug into the old stuff," said Harper of the reunion album. "It was meant to be a signpost that we're here to forge new ground musically and personally."

    Pure McCartney (Box Set)

    Pure McCartney, a new compilation of his solo, Wings and Fireman work, celebrates that fact, showcasing 67 highlights from one of the most-revered catalogues in music - from 'McCartney' in 1970, his debut solo album, right through to 'Hope For The Future', his 2014 track taken from 'Destiny', the most-anticipated video game of the last decade. Not only is 'Pure McCartney' a monumental mix tape of some of popular music's most memorable moments from 1970 to the present day, it also features curios for the super fans and some of Paul's personal favourites-all handpicked by the man himself.


    Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to, Paul says of this project.


    Maybe it's to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home or at a party with friends? So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse playlists from various periods of my long and winding career."


    As a songwriter Paul has never stood still, dipping his toe in countless genres and styles. 'Pure McCartney' is testament to that fact. From the song writing master class of 'Maybe I'm Amazed' and adventurous, three-songs-in-one of 'Band On The Run' to the irresistible groove of 'Say Say Say' and ahead-of-its-time electronica of 'Temporary Secretary', described by NME when compiling a list of the greatest ever songs as not so much ahead of its time, but out of it altogether", 'Pure McCartney' charts the unstoppable adventures of McCartney's unique and eclectic song writing talents and shines a light on his post-Beatles artistic achievements.


    The word 'career' is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job, says Paul, reflecting on the 'Pure McCartney' tracklisting. It pleases me, and often amazes me, that I've been involved in the writing and recording of so many songs, each of them so different from the others.


    Paul's unparalleled career has seen his music break global chart records, win countless awards, fill stadiums around the world and become the soundtrack to millions of people's lives across generations.

    Sounds Like This

    With its delightfully vibrant blend of inventive musicality and genre-blurring reach, Sounds Like This sees ALO operating with fresh verve and vitality, their always-kaleidoscopic funk pop 'n roll aglow with exceptionally ebullient songcraft and deliriously danceable grooves.


    The California-based band's fourth Brushfire Records release showcases their unfettered passion, wit, and imagination while simultaneously exploring hitherto uncharted musical terrain. Invigorated by an unstructured approach to the studio process, ALO have accessed new avenues of resourcefulness, resulting in a truly distinctive collection of songs that adroitly captures all the glorious ingenuity and adventure of the band's legendary live sets.


    In April of 2011, ALO convened at San Francisco's Mission Bells studio with no plans other than to make some music together. With studio owner/longtime collaborator David Simon-Baker assisting behind the board, the band opted to take the same improvisational tack towards recording as they do on stage. Any distinctions between pre-production and real recording would be shed, allowing for ALO's instinctive spontaneity to make it to track.


    ALO let their imagination run free, both musically and lyrically, resulting in such larger-than-life highlights as the Old West flight of fancy, "Cowboys and Chorus Girls," the self-explanatory glitterball workout, "Room For Bloomin" and at the heart of the album, the raucous reverie for days past, "Blew Out The Walls. Where prior albums featured songs penned individually and then arranged by the band, this time out, ALO were determined that their collective spirit inform every groove.

    Spitballin'

    The DAVE STEWART-produced SPITBALLIN' would never have happened if not for one Twitter message that turned STEWART's world upside down. STEWART has seen and done it all, but none of it prepared him for what he would hear from THOMAS LINDSEY. "I read it and clicked on the link," STEWART recalls. "And there he was, singing something on a YouTube video. I don't remember what it was but there was no music. He was singing a cappella. And I went, 'Holy crap!'" STEWART got in touch with his young admirer and invited him to send examples of his original material.


    "It was really amazing stuff. So I asked if he wanted to come out to Los Angeles and sing three songs unaccompanied before my show at the Troubadour," STEWART says. Following their live debut, STEWART and LINDSEY began writing together by sending audio files back and forth between L.A. and Louisiana. Working long distance seemed to bring them closer as they built a catalog of songs.


    Their common ground proved as lush as Delta marshland. A down-and-dirty delta guitar riff. A thumping drum beat. And a stunning vocal intro, urgent, haunted, earthy and spiritual, with blues-drenched filigrees, a vibrato that shocks like an electric current, a range that defies not just convention but gravity itself. Backed by STEWART's distorted voodoo guitar licks, LINDSEY opens "Leave This Town" in free tempo and then a swampy groove kicks in--just guitar and drums, raw and wild. "Two People" unfolds over a stomping beat that leads to a long vamp over which Lindsey improvises with hair-raising intensity and finesse. Churchy echoes permeate "When Dogs Run," with a mournful organ providing the backdrop to STEWART's Pop Staples-style guitar tremolo. "Alcohol" boils down to organ and LINDSEY's voice recounting a riveting elegy for someone who was "lost to alcohol."


    Some of the stories behind the lyrics on these songs are sad, but true and some more fanciful. To write "Crocodile," for instance, LINDSEY admits "I tried to write a song that would seem like something from a shoe commercial! I had this image of a woman in bad-ass crocodile boots, walking down the street. That's how that song formed."

    Justus

    First time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Release... Their final work together... captured in the audiophile domain... only from your friends at Friday Music... It Looks Like We've Made It Once Again!


    The Monkees have been one of the world's most enduring rock and pop acts of all time. Since their beginnings in 1966, their television show, multiplatinum albums, hit singles and concert tours truly made The Monkees one of the most colossal stories ever in the music business.


    In 1996, after a thirty year hiatus as a quartet, the original Monkees Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork went back to the studio and recorded what would ultimately be their final studio project, the Justus album. Noted for their return to the studio and touring around the legendary release, this final work also found The Monkees as the sole musicians, vocalists, writers and production team for all of the tracks assembled for the recording. The results truly showed one of the more organically produced albums ever from their superstar catalog of fine recordings.Originally an idea spearheaded by Michael Nesmith, the Justus album was conceptual in nature almost mirroring the original idea behind their classic Headquarters album, which like Justus, showcased these four musical talents as a team and offered no single track to radio but instead a full musical album listening experience.


    Opening up with a new take on Circle Sky, Michael Nesmith is on top of his game with this metal-like rocker originally from Head. Featuring a wall of loud guitars, retro lyrics and chorus, this classic track was performed at the reunion concerts around this album, and once again reemphasized the importance of the original quartet setting, making this a great intro track.


    Davy Jones belts out one of his finest compositions with the uptempo groove of Oh, What A Night. The tune truly resonated with the fans back then and continues to be one of the more appreciated classics in his long list of time tested Monkees favorites.
    Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones repeat the magic with their revisit of You And I from their Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart era. Featuring a strong vocal performance by the duo and the stunning guitar work of both Monkees' Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith, this track truly captures the innocence and the feel of their sixties sound, as it became a time tested track well into their final tour of 2011.


    Much like their Instant Replay (FRM 113) album, Micky Dolenz contributes a good helping of original compositions to the Justus project. Either rockers like Dyin' Of A Broken Heart, the blues balladry of It's My Life, or the Rolling Stones vibe of Regional Girl, the Justus album was a watershed for Dolenz's writings and vocal prowess which truly makes this 1996 session a true winner.


    Peter Tork was always one of the more intriguing writers and musicians of the band, and it is fitting that the more progressive sounds would derive from his pen with the classic I Believe You as well as his fine prog-rock track Run Away From Life featuring the powerful vocals of Davy Jones.
    The late great Davy Jones gets the honor of closing out this wonderful album with his classic ballad It's Not Too Late. With his stunning vocal and heartfelt lyrics, and the brilliant chorus from the his Monkees brethren, the song in itself is a fitting tribute to these four geniuses, as the legacy of this superstar band will forever stand the test of time.


    Friday Music is once again very honored to announce the continuation of The Monkees Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series with the first time vinyl album release of their 1996 masterwork Justus. Mastered by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees/Elvis Presley/Brian Wilson) from the original Rhino Records tapes at Friday Music Studios, this first time audiophile vinyl release is also for a very short time being offered in limited edition clear vinyl as well as a first time gatefold cover presentation.

    Take Refuge In Clean Living

    Remastered For Vinyl From Original Recordings


    Opening with a nod to Syd Barret's Pink Floyd (Piper at the Gates of Dawn) Take Refuge In Clean Living begins with morse code and drops into one of the heaviest slow-burn grooves in the Grails canon. Sounding something like Hawkwind and Ravi Shankar scoring Blade Runner, it's lysergic and earthy for Grails in a new way. The rest of the record moves from blissful Eno-inspired ambience, to epic Morricone rock hymns, to an unexpected take on a Ventures tune that returns the listener to the very beginnings of instrumental rock music. The touring incarnation of Grails in 2006 and 2007 included good friend and drummer Ben Nugent, allowing Emil Amos to switch to 3rd guitar for the band's live instrumentation. The DNA of this guitar-heavy line-up allowed for new kinds of arrangements and bigger melodies. In early 2007, the then-5-piece entered Steven Lobdell's (Faust) Audible Alchemy studio to document the new songs written with this augmented ensemble. Those sessions make up Take Refuge In Clean Living.


    Remastered for vinyl and reissued for the first time in nearly a decade, Take Refuge In Clean Living sees Grails pulling back their already wide lens on multiple sonic horizons. Grails often take what would sound over-ambitious on paper and make it sonically flow in an effortless, laid-back style. The band is defined by exploration and they've created a template for themselves where any style or method can be ingested to reap legitimate rewards. Take Refuge In Clean Living rightly suggested that Grails wouldn't run out of ideas.

    Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band (Anniversary Edition) (Compact Disc) (On Sale)

    Ranked 1/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time!


    50th Anniversary Reissue


    CD Features The New 'Sgt. Pepper' Stereo Mix, Complete With The Original U.K. Album's "Edit For LP End" Run-Out Groove


    It was 50 years ago this June 1st when The Beatles' John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music's most universally acclaimed album. To salute the occasion, The Beatles will release 'Sgt. Pepper' Anniversary Edition.


    "It's crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art," says Paul McCartney.


    "'Sgt. Pepper' seemed to capture the mood of that year, and it also allowed a lot of other people to kick off from there and to really go for it," Ringo Starr recalls.


    The Anniversary Edition includes Martin's new stereo mix of the album, which was sourced directly from the original four-track session tapes and guided by the original, Beatles-preferred mono mix produced by his father, George Martin.


    The album's vibrant artwork, including its extravagant Pop Art cover which finds The Beatles surrounded by a crowd of heroes in a 3D collage, was created by Peter Blake and Jann Haworth in collaboration with the band.


    "We hope you will enjoy the show"


    Just as many ideas are sparked by chance, 'Sgt. Pepper' first sprang from a conversation between Paul and Beatles roadie Mal Evans on an airplane, when Mal's request to pass the salt and pepper was misheard by Paul as "Sgt. Pepper." The concept of who such a figure could be took root in Paul's mind, blooming with the imagination of The Beatles as an Edwardian era military band -- "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." The Beatles' creative wellspring for 'Sgt. Pepper' also flowed from such myriad sources as The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds album, a Victorian circus poster ("Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!"), a TV commercial for breakfast cereal ("Good Morning Good Morning"), a picture drawn by John's young son, Julian ("Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"), a teen runaway reported in the news ("She's Leaving Home'), and Hindu teachings ("Within You Without You").


    "Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song"


    Using the standard four-track tape recording equipment of the day, The Beatles collaborated with producer George Martin to achieve "the impossible," as they dubbed it, to go as far out as they could with arrangements and new technology to realize their collective vision for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. As George Martin described it, "We were into another kind of art form where you were putting something down on tape that could only be done on tape." The Beatles clocked more than 400 hours in Abbey Road's Studio 2 to record the album, wrapping sessions in April 1967.


    "I read the news today oh boy"


    Upon its release on June 1, 1967, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band initially spent 148 weeks in the British chart, including a total of 27 weeks at number one. During its first U.S. chart run, the album held the number one spot for 15 of the 88 weeks it appeared in the Top 200. 'Sgt. Pepper' won four GRAMMY Awards®, including Album of the Year, and it remains one of the most influential and bestselling albums of all time. In 2003, the U.S. Library of Congress selected 'Sgt. Pepper' for the National Recording Registry, recognizing the album as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." 'Sgt. Pepper' tops Rolling Stone magazine's definitive list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time."
