Simon And Garfunkel Vinyl'
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and ThymeRanked 201/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Simon and Garfunkel's classic album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, released in 1966, marked the duo's emergence as both a brilliant creative force and one of their era's biggest-selling recording acts.
The pair's third album, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme was the first on which they won complete artistic control, and they rose to the occasion brilliantly, delivering an ambitious, autumnal epic that's been described as a folkrock equivalent of the Beatles' Revolver and the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. Combining fuzz-tinged pop and pastoral baroque-folk with the duo's heavenly
harmonies, Paul Simon's heady wordplay and some imaginatively layered production
touches, the album features such Simon and Garfunkel standards as Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair and The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy).
Sundazed's exact vinyl replica of this harmony-rich classic is sourced from the original stereo master tapes, making this release an essential component of any '60s pop/rock collection.1. Scarborough Fair/Canticle

Paul SimonIf any musical justification were needed for the breakup of Simon & Garfunkel, it could be found on this striking collection, Paul Simon's post-split debut. From the opening cut, Mother and Child Reunion (a Top Ten hit), Simon, who had snuck several subtle musical explorations into the generally conservative S&G sound, broke free, heralding the rise of reggae with an exuberant track recorded in Jamaica for a song about death. From there, it was off to Paris for a track in South American style and a rambling story of a fisherman's son, Duncan (which made the singles chart). But most of the album had a low-key feel, with Simon on acoustic guitar backed by only a few trusted associates (among them Joe Osborn, Larry Knechtel, David Spinozza, Mike Manieri, Ron Carter, and Hal Blaine, along with such guests as Stefan Grossman, Airto Moreira, and Stephane Grappelli), singing a group of informal, intimate, funny, and closely observed songs (among them the lively Top 40 hit Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard). It was miles removed from the big, stately ballad style of Bridge Over Troubled Water and signaled that Simon was a versatile songwriter as well as an expressive singer with a much broader range of musical interests than he had previously demonstrated. You didn't miss Art Garfunkel on Paul Simon, not only because Simon didn't write Garfunkel-like showcases for himself, but because the songs he did write showed off his own, more varied musical strengths.

The Graduate (Speakers Corner)
With his film The Graduate, which was crowned with an Oscar and five Golden Globes, director Mike Nichols created far more than just the story of the erotic initiation of the college graduate Benjamin. Not only the scenario but also the production modalities were revolutionary. For the very first time the crusted morals of the American upper class were attacked by means of film, an Alfa Romeo - a European car - was advertised most effectively, and a soundtrack was put together from already existent, successful pop numbers. No words are really necessary about the music, since numbers such as Sound Of Silence, Mrs. Robinson and Scarborough Fair have entered into the annals of musical culture ever since they were used in the film. It is astounding to note how seamlessly the various works fit snugly into the film's context, as though they had been specially written for the scenes.
This soundtrack is a monument to Dustin Hoffman, who played his first big role in the film, and it catapulted Simon & Garfunkel right to the top of the list of ballad singers. But it also recalls to memory the peppy, instrumental insertion numbers by Dave Grusin, who virtually fell into oblivion after all the hype about this provocative movie.

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.

Bus StopNo rest for the Hollies in 1966! Hot on the heels of Beat Group!, Bus Stop rolled into U.S. record shops, right on schedule. Written by Gouldman, the title track became the bands first Top Ten U.S. single, peaking at #5, and featuring their bell-tone harmonies to perfection. In addition to the sparkling single, the album is packed with their renditions of contemporary hits like Simon and Garfunkel's I Am A Rock, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' Mickey's Monkey' and the Fred Neil/Roy Orbison chestnut Candy Man. Self-penned songs We're Through, Don't Run and Hide and You Know He Did also shine brightly and prove there was no danger of covering up the band members writing skills. With this disc, the Hollies put the rock world on notice that they were the British Invasions most beat-filled battalion!
Out of print for decades, this classic album is FINALLY available again. Sourced from the aurally awesome original U.K. mono master, this LP is pressed on pristine 180-gram vinyl per your turntables request. Get in the queue!
Perhaps the most undervalued band of the original British Invasion, The Hollies hits are well known in the U.S. but their early albums are almost impossible to find! Taking their name from Buddy Holly and modeling their harmonies on the Everly Brothers, the Hollies gathered these American musical ingredients and whipped them into a wholly-UKnique concoction. Forging their sound to the east of their Liverpool brothers-in-beat, this Manchester quintet had it all: the soaring vocals of Allan Clarke, Graham Nash and Tony Hicks; Hicks cascading, arpeggio-laden licks on guitar and a hard-hitting rhythm section driven by drummer extraordinaire Bobby Elliot. On top of that, their keen ears for top quality songs, written by the premier songsmiths of the day like teenage wunderkind Graham Gouldman, Chip Wild Thing Taylor and the stellar in-house writing team of Clarke/Hicks/Nash, ensured that their albums were extraordinary from start to finish. In short, they were a band that exuded greatness on all fronts. Now, as that greatness has been acknowledged by their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Sundazed Music is proud to present meticulously restored vinyl editions of the rare U.S. mono versions of the Hollies third and fourth Imperial label albums, from 1966.1.

The Golden Hits Of The Everly BrothersMastered from the Original Warner Bros. Tapes by Joe Reagoso
Don and Phil Everly are most certainly two of the most important figures in popular music history. Whether rock, pop, adult contemporary or country music, The Everly Brothers have consistently rose to the occasion with their successful harmonies, musicianship, and of course the knack to pick songs and write their own material which has made them legends in their own time.
Their legendary status has put them on world stages for over five decades and they have been honored and adored by both the fans and huge rock music icons like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Simon and Garfunkel. When the Everly Brothers joined the Warner Bros. label in the late '50s, their marquee value was just beginning to skyrocket. A long term lucrative deal, unprecedented at the time, afforded the boys the real opportunity to churn out hit after hit in record time.
While making a successful string of albums and hit singles, their greatest hits LP, simply titled The Golden Hits Of The Everly Brothers, showcased their star power in 1962. Filled with a dozen of their biggest hits like Cathys Clown, Thats Old Fashioned, Crying In The Rain, Ebony Eyes and their classic interpretation of Little Richards Lucille, the album itself was another home run for the duo. It rode the charts for months during its initial release and has been a consistent seller in various formats since the original album was discontinued decades ago!
Friday Music kicks off The Everly Brothers 180 Gram Audiophile Series with their greatest hits album The Golden Hits Of The Everly Brothers. This first time ever high grade audiophile vinyl release is mastered from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records with Ron McMaster. It also includes the brilliant album cover photography of Michael Levin and the all of the great songs you remember including other major Top 40 smashes like Dont Blame Me, Walk Right Back and the masterful ballad So Sad.
To keep your rock and roll investment in mint shape, Friday Music has also enclosed a vinyl lined album sleeve to protect the music and a poly bag for the album cover to enhance your listening for years to come.1. Thats Old Fashioned - 1962

The Ash & ClayThe Ash & Clay culminates a whirlwind first year of the Milk Carton Kids' existence. In that short time the duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan have built a vibrant following with the simple purity of their music: touring with the Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Punch Brothers, and KD Lang; appearing on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series; charming audiences with their deadpan on-stage humor (riffing on the Smothers Brothers for young fans who have never heard of the Smothers Brothers); offering their debut album for free to willing fans - over 110,000 downloaded - from their website; and grabbing press acclaim usually reserved for veteran artists. A sweetly dazzling variation on closeharmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel and part Everly Brothers, with occasional acoustic prestidigitation," proclaimed The New York Times. With three new Milk Carton Kids songs - "Snake Eyes," "The Ash & Clay" and "The Jewel of June" - featured in the new Gus Van Sant film Promised Land starring Matt Damon, 2013 looks to be a big year for these Kids.

Still Crazy After All These YearsThe third new studio album of Paul Simon's post-Simon & Garfunkel career was a musical and lyrical change of pace from his first two, Paul Simon and There Goes Rhymin' Simon. Where Simon had taken an eclectic approach before, delving into a variety of musical styles and recording all over the world, Still Crazy found him working for the most part with a group of jazz-pop New York session players, though he did do a couple of tracks (My Little Town and Still Crazy After All These Years) with the Muscle Shoals rhythm section that had appeared on Rhymin' Simon and another (Gone at Last) returned to the gospel style of earlier songs like Loves Me Like a Rock. Of course, My Little Town also marked a return to working with Art Garfunkel, and another Top Ten entry for S&G. But the overall feel of Still Crazy was of a jazzy style subtly augmented with strings and horns. Perhaps more striking, however, was Simon's lyrical approach. Where Rhymin' Simon was the work of a confident family man, Still Crazy came off as a post-divorce album, its songs reeking of smug self-satisfaction and romantic disillusionment. At their best, such sentiments were undercut by humor and made palatable by musical hooks, as on 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, which became the biggest solo hit of Simon's career. But elsewhere, as on Have a Good Time, the singer's cynicism seemed unearned. Still, as out of sorts as Simon may have been, he was never more in tune with his audience: Still Crazy topped the charts, spawned four Top 40 hits, and won Grammys for Song of the Year and Best Vocal Performance.

There Goes Rhymin' SimonRetaining the buoyant musical feel of Paul Simon, but employing a more produced sound, There Goes Rhymin' Simon found Paul Simon writing and performing with assurance and venturing into soulful and R&B-oriented music. Simon returned to the kind of vocal pyrotechnics heard on the Simon & Garfunkel records by using gospel singers. On Love Me Like a Rock and Tenderness (which sounded as though it could have been written to Art Garfunkel), the Dixie Hummingbirds sang prominent backup vocals, and on Take Me to the Mardi Gras, Reverend Claude Jeter contributed a falsetto part that Garfunkel could have handled, though not as warmly. For several tracks, Simon traveled to the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios to play with its house band, getting a variety of styles, from the gospel of Love Me Like a Rock to the Dixieland of Mardi Gras. Simon was so confident that he even included a major ballad statement of the kind he used to give Garfunkel to sing: American Tune was his musical State of the Union, circa 1973, but this time Simon was up to making his big statements in his own voice. Though that song spoke of the age's most uncertain hour, otherwise Rhymin' Simon was a collection of largely positive, optimistic songs of faith, romance, and commitment, concluding, appropriately, with a lullaby (St. Judy's Comet) and a declaration of maternal love (Loves Me Like a Rock) -- in other words, another mother-and-child reunion that made Paul Simon and There Goes Rhymin' Simon bookend masterpieces Simon would not improve upon (despite some valiant attempts) until Graceland in 1986.

Many musicians attended one of his shows most notably amongst them George Harrison, Art Garfunkel, David Bowie, all the members of both Ten Years After and Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan.

REDD-SUN-5142xVince Martin & Fred Neil
Tear Down The WallsThe rumbling baritone of Fred Neil and Vince Martins earthy tenor... Its a vocal blend every bit as impressive as the great duos in music history: the Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel with a Greenwich Village twist, of course. Put Neil and Martin, a pair of New York City folkie legends-in-the-making, into a recording studio with a young, pre-Spoonful John Sebastian on harmonica and Felix Pappalardi (later to produce Cream and the Youngbloods) on guitarron (an acoustic Mexican bass guitar) and magic is inevitable. This, of course, is Fred Neil in 1964, well before he just walked away from the folk scene and split for Florida and premature retirement in 1971, to remain an enigma until his recent death. Every recording by this compelling, monstrously talented singer/songwriter should be cherished like spun gold.

Garden State SoundtrackThe soundtrack to Zach Braff's Garden State is nearly as much of a piece with the film as the similarly sweet, quirky combinations of sound and vision in Wes Anderson's films and soundtracks. Garden State, however, is more modern in its outlook and more emotionally direct, with a mixtape earnestness belied by using not one but two songs from the Shins' Oh, Inverted World. New Slang is an obvious choice, as the song just seems to grow in stature as time passes, but Caring Is Creepy, Oh, Inverted World's vulnerable, ever-so-slightly unhinged opening track, is not, and adds to the personal, diary-like feel of the album. The bright poignancy of the Shins' tracks stands out even more among the low-key melancholy of songs like Coldplay's Don't Panic, Remy Zero's Fair, and Colin Hay's I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You. The inclusion of Hay's track, Bonnie Somerville's Winding Road, and the Cary Brothers' Blue Eyes shows that Garden State doesn't go for the hipster, too-cool-for-school poses that one might expect from the soundtrack of a hot indie movie, even with the inclusion of Iron & Wine's cover of the Postal Service's Such Great Heights. Still, there's something of a collegiate feel to the soundtrack, especially with the re-rediscovery of Nick Drake (One of These Things First) and Simon & Garfunkel (The Only Living Boy in New York) as well as the tentative forays into electronica and trip-hop like Zero 7's In the Waiting Line, Frou Frou's Let Go, and Thievery Corporation's Lebanese Blonde. Perhaps this collegiate feel comes from the fact that those years are often the time when many people are the most ready and willing to explore music that is new to them (but not necessarily new), but, as the success of Garden State's soundtrack shows, any time can be the right time.

PasserbyIn a world where instant gratification is the norm, patience has become
a rare commodity. But for Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett, who make up
indie-folk duo Luluc (pronounced Loo-LUKE), letting things unfold in
due time not only defines their career trajectory, it also works as a pretty
good description of their approach to making music. Music that Sub
Pop co-founder Jonathan Poneman describes as bracing, subtle, tender
So while it may seem like Randell and Hassett's history is littered with
all kinds of good luck-from their initial meeting to their relationship
with The National's Aaron Dessner to opening slots with artists like
Lucinda Williams, Fleet Foxes, and JosÉ Gonzàlez; to their deal with Sub
Pop; to grabbing the attention of Nick Drake's producer-being in the
right place at the right time isn't just about fate. It's about knowing when
something feels right and having the confidence that people will respond
when they're ready.
There's no question that everything these Australians (who split their
time between Melbourne and their adopted hometown of Brooklyn) have
done in their lives has been leading up to this summer's Passerby, their
second album overall and first available worldwide. Passerby is a gorgeously
crafted 10-track album full of beautiful, slow-burning melodies and
delicate harmonies, which drip out of their mouths like honey. The
attention to detail is unmistakable, and highlights like "Reverie On
Norfolk Street" and "Early Night" are as haunting as they are hummable.
Unadorned guitars and voices make up the bulk of the dreamy sound,
though the power of the added instrumentation can't be overstated, with
well-placed piano, percussion, double bass, sax, trumpet, trombone,
and more adding color to the cosmopolitan atmosphere. Band favorites
like Simon and Garfunkel and Gillian Welch (and, of course, Nick Drake)
can be felt throughout Passerby, while the poignant restraint aligns them
well with labelmates Low.
Co-produced by the band and Dessner, Passerby shows off all of Luluc's
best qualities, retaining the gentle beauty of the duo's debut while adding
textures built with a cadre of impressive players. It's the trophy celebrating
Luluc's airtight case that good things-no, make that great things-really
do come to those who wait. The wait is over. The world is ready to hear
Luluc quiet and clear.1. Small Window

That's The Way It IsFirst Time 180 Gram Audiophile Soundtrack Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation!
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Manufactured At R.T.I.
Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, forever etching "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. In 1970 after a plethora of chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, Elvis Presley continued to build his marquee value even further while starring in a staggering amount of feature motion pictures. More incredible fame followed as the That's The Way It Is movie starring Elvis Presley became another box office hit for the King. The 70's epic documentary captured Elvis's first concert tour in over a decade, as the brilliant soundtrack album recorded live in Las Vegas and in RCA Studios, Nashville, was also was a blockbuster as it rose to the upper rungs of the album charts, making this his 40th hit album in a row! Both the That's The Way It Is movie and soundtrack LP truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.
Filled with more winners than in a Las Vegas casino, That's The Way It Is takes off with several smashes in a row, including the classic I Just Can't Help Believin' which became a UK smash, plus the definitive hit single version of You Don't Have to Say You Love Me plus an LP live only version of the killer rocker Patch It Up featuring James Burton's trail blazing guitar work. More soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful ballads I've Lost You and Mary in the Morning. The album also features his stellar rendition of You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' featuring the vocals of The Sweet Inspirations as well as the superlative Simon & Garfunkel interpretation of Bridge Over Troubled Water. In total, the album showcases 12 very important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics.

Acoustic SessionsAcoustic Sessions is the debut from The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl) on their own home-grown label Chimera Music. Like a chimera itself, a mythical two-headed creature, the G.O.A.S.T.T. work from one heart despite having two separate minds. Acoustic Sessions shows their love of quirky and whimsical '60s folk pop, reminiscent at times of Syd Barrett, the Incredible String Band and Simon & Garfunkel. G.O.A.S.T.T. weaves narratives around metaphysical geography of their own devising, finding a surrealist beauty in the mundane.

Songs From A RoomMeticulously Remastered
Sourced From The Original Columbia Records Stereo Masters In Order To Preserve The Sound Of The Original Albums
Cohen's sophomore effort Songs from a Room (recorded with producer Bob Johnston, renowned for his work with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, the Byrds and Simon and Garfunkel) was a worthy follow-up, boasting such enduring compositions as "Bird on the Wire," "Story of Isaac" and "A Bunch of Lonesome Heroes."
By the time Leonard Cohen began his recording career in 1967, the iconoclastic Canadian troubadour was already well established as a poet and author. He quickly emerged as one of the era's most original and influential singer-songwriters, building a large and legendary body of work that continues to inspire artists and listeners alike.
Much of Cohen's reputation and mystique was established by his early work for Columbia Records, particularly the five albums he recorded between 1967 and 1974. Now, these five classic albums, unavailable on vinyl for two decades, have been lovingly restored to their original LP format.
For their new Sundazed editions, all five albums have been meticulously remastered and have been sourced from the original Columbia Records stereo masters in order to preserve the sound of the original albums. In keeping with the exacting standards for which Sundazed has become known, each album will be pressed on high-definition vinyl, with complete original cover art.1. Bird on the Wire

FlagFlag is Classic JT: At-Home Folk Arrangements, Soft-Rock Coziness, Captivating Emotion
Narratives on 1979 Gem Peer into the Heart of Everyman and Everywoman
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Sonics As Mellifluous As Taylor's Voice on a Cool Summer Night
JT and Dad Loves His Work Also Available on 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity
James Taylor was an interesting place when he recorded the colossally underrated Flag. Fresh off his double-platinum J.T. (also available from Mobile Fidelity), the artist who defines the singer-songwriter genre had just collaborated with Art Garfunkel and Carly Simon, undertaken a Broadway musical, and become more active in political affairs. All these factors contribute to this 1979 treasure, which finds Taylor plying more of his trademark mellow vibes and insightful, soul-gazing lyrics.
While Flag has been previously remastered for CD, its never been sourced from the original analog master tapes. Mobile Fidelitys brilliant-sounding 180g LP is, and the results are as spectacular as chilling out to Taylors mellifluous voice on a summer night. Flush with exquisite acoustic textures, beautiful tonalities, and studio-perfect dynamics, this audiophile version brings Taylors music to life like never before.
Having landed in the Top Ten and sold more than two million copies, Flag nonetheless remains one of Taylors most under-appreciated efforts. And its not because the content is lacking. The beloved singer enters his hallmark storytelling mode on Sleep Come Free Me and dizzies the senses with the beloved Rainy Day Man. Drawing from his musical Working (based on legendary author Studs Terkels book of the same name), Millworker and Brother Trucker are lessons in character studies, Taylors narratives peering into the heart of blue-collar America and reflecting his knack for the everymanand everywoman.
Similarly, a pair of coversUp on the Roof and Day Trippershow his knack for reverent interpretation as well as originality. Flag reveals why we love JT. The literary descriptiveness, at-home folk arrangements, soft-rock fireplace coziness, captivating emotion, faithful tones, and stellar sense of instrumental placement, be it backing vocals, nuanced percussion, pedal-steel guitar, or subtle horns, the latter courtesy of do-it-all saxophonist David Sanborn. Alas, many of these facets have long gone unnoticed.
Ever since its original release, Flag has been plagued with muddled sound. No longer. Mobile Fidelitys analog reissue unlocks the well-kept sonic secrets and floods the record with the intimacy and impact that have always lurked underneath the surface. Finally, Taylors finite acoustic playing, well-mannered melodies, reflective words, and refined singing are experienced as a whole. The amount of new musical information thats been uncovered will boggle the minds of even the most ardent Taylor fans.
Trust us: Flag is one of Taylors finest works. After three decades, hear it all for yourself. And discover what is certain to become of your new favorite records.

legendary musical career began in the 50's, followed with a plethora
of hit songs written for the likes of Ray Price, Patsy Cline and Roy
Orbison, and then his own six decade long recording career in the
country, rock, pop, adult, and even jazz genres, sharing his legendary
vocal, guitar and songwriting persona for millions of fans worldwide.
With 1982's Always On My Mind Lp, Willie Nelson created one of the
most successful top charting hit albums of all time. The Lp features
Willie's stellar vocal and guitar interpretations on the definitive outlaw
version of Procol Harum's A Whiter Shade Of Pale (featuring Waylon
Jennings), his melancholy #1 title track Always On My Mind, plus an
incredible reading of Aretha Franklin's Do Right Woman, Do Right
Alongside great versions of tunes like Bridge Over Trouble Water
by Simon & Garfunkel, you also get some masterful Willie Nelson
originals like the LP closer The Party's Over. All in all, making Always
On My Mind the legendary album it is and always will be.

Joels Breakthrough Record Loaded With Smash Hits: Movin Out (Anthonys Song), Just the Way You Are, Only the Good Die Young, Shes Always a Woman
Getting It Right: Mobile Fidelitys Half-Speed Mastered Version Brings Phil Ramones Celebrated Production into Full-Color Detail
1977 Set a Grammy Winner for Record of the Year and Song of the Year
Billy Joel entered 1977 with a great track record but in need of breakthrough. Pairing with producer Phil Ramone (Carly Simon, Simon & Garfunkel), who developed the requisite ingredients missing from Joels formula, the singer-songwriter became a household name and chart-topping success courtesy of The Stranger. Certified ten-times platinum, Joels artistic and commercial smash remains a pop-rock benchmark. Better still, it now sounds astonishing.
An integral part of Mobile Fidelitys Billy Joel catalog restoration series, The Stranger is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI. Far superior to the previous Sony and Simply Vinyl analog reissues, this edition emphasizes the crucial touches and insightful techniques Ramone brought to a batch of material that ranks among Joels most clever, catchy, and sagacious.
Whereas a handful of Joels preceding efforts feature a near-flawless mix of melodic arrangements and poignant lyrics, the aspects he sought in order to graduate into a more serious artist arrive here via Ramones more muscular, fleshed-out, and rock-enabling production. The streamlined approach slightly strips back the sweeping developments heard on Piano Man and Turnstiles, and on this edition, lays bare the core of the material, allowing the vocalists bittersweet yearning, rollicking 88 notes, and working-class conviction to emanate with full-bodied detail, vivid color, and grand-scale dynamics.
A Grammy winner for both Record and Song of the Year, Just the Way You Are epitomizes Joels balladic reach, his ability to transfer wistful sentiments and lovelorn emotions. He also flashes a mean streak. The animated Only the Good Die Young bounces and hops to an updated classic-R&B rhythm and, underneath its beauty, Shes Always A Woman hints at trouble underfoot. And then theres the New York-centric, character-rich poetry of the vignettes.
Akin to many of his influences, Joel nails the grit, personality, specificity, descriptiveness, and behavior of protagonists that populate Movin Out (Anthonys Song) and Scenes From an Italian Diner, each equally at home on The Stranger as well as on a Broadway play or on a golden-era Hollywood film soundtrack. No wonder that, just months after its original release, Joel was no longer a stranger to any of the music-loving public. He would never look back.
Don't pass up this seminal pop-rock work in the best fidelity its ever enjoyed.

HypnophobiaHypnophobia, the brand new album from 'baroque pop' prince and
Dutch producer/multi-instrumentalist Jacco Gardner, casts a majestic
and vibrant psychedelic spell that will hypnotise listeners at the point
dreams and reality meet.
Capturing a true sense of exploration, Hypnophobia combines
Gardner's newfound love of travel with his continued passion for
collecting and playing vintage instruments. A stunning exhibit of lush
instrumental tracks as well as songs that boast lyrics worthy of any
great pop number, the record features a Wurlitzer electric piano that
was purchased on tour, waltzing alongside mellotrons, harpsichords,
an Optigan, and an antique Steinway upright piano sold to Gardner by
a local church.
Akin to the sonic boom of maverick contemporaries John Maus, and
Tame Impala, his is a sound that holds fast next to fellow paisley
performers Syd Barrett and Curt Boettcher, with the airy dynamics of
Stereolab or Simon & Garfunkel. Yet what truly marks Gardner from
his musical ancestors and accomplices is his forward-thinking, hi-tech
approach; "Hypnophobia is the next step into an alternate reality
influenced by the present. I'm so inspired by today's technology that
many things I do were not possible in the past."1. Another You
