    Live in 1960

    Remastered At Infrasonic Mastering

    Pressed At Pallas Group In Germany

    Sister Rosetta Tharpe Nominated For 2018 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction

    "The Godmother Of Rock & Roll" Live In Europe

    Sister Rosetta Tharpe was the first great recording star of
    gospel music and among the first gospel musicians to appeal
    to rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll audiences, later being
    referred to as "the original soul sister" and "the godmother of
    rock and roll". This live recording from 1960 had never been on
    vinyl, until now, a whole 57 years later.

    The set has plenty of variety, lots of sincere feeling, and high
    levels of musicianship from the unique performer. Highlights
    include "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands," "Didn't It
    Rain," "The Gospel Train" and "Down By the Riverside." The
    album was remastered for vinyl from analog tape and pressed
    at Pallas Group in Germany.

    American Epic: The Soundtrack

    American Epic: The Soundtrack leads the way for a series of album releases accompanying the Lo-Max/PBS/BBC Arena film project American Epic created by Allison McGourty, Duke Erikson and Directed by Bernard MacMahon.

    American Epic is a journey across time to the birth of modern recording, when music scouts armed with cutting-edge recording technology captured the breadth of American music and discovered the artists that would shape our world.

    The recordings they made of all the ethnic groups of America democratized the nation and gave a voice to everyone. Country singers in the Appalachians, Blues guitarists in the Mississippi Delta, Gospel preachers across the south, Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana, Tejano groups from the Texas Mexico border, Native American drummers in Arizona, and Hawaiian musicians were all recorded. It was the first time America heard itself.

    American Epic: The Soundtrack highlights recordings from the three-part documentary on one 150g LP, including original recordings by The Carter Family, Mississippi John Hurt, Charley Patton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and more all restored to unprecedented levels of sonic fidelity.

    Roll With The Punches

    Roll With The Punches - Van Morrison's 37th studio album - sees him simultaneously hand-picking a selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin' Hopkins among others) and recording a set of new self-written songs. It's an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of rock'n'roll alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists.

    Roll With The Punches was produced by Van Morrison and recorded with an incredible team of studio collaborators including Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.

    Dig That Treasure

    This trio includes Nedelle Torrisi (former Kill Rock Stars artist, The Curtains, Why?, Xiu Xiu), Chris Cohen (The Curtains, Deerhoof, Cass McCombs), and Michael Carreira (music teacher). Every song here is a miniature journey, a free fantasia, a dreamy habitat built out of the minimum of material. Sudden rhythmic gestures and frequent key changes will leave you feeling pleasantly disoriented. The record is humbly inspired by the larger-than-life emotions of West Side Story, the joyfully percussive guitar gospel of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, The Wizard Of Oz's bittersweet escapism, the other-world sentimentality of Sun Ra's Spaceship Lullaby, and Henry Cowell's ethereal piano string strumming.

    True Sadness (Awaiting Repress)

    True Sadness is a patchwork quilt, both thematically and stylistically. Wherein a myriad of contrasting fabrics make perfect sense on the same plane, this album draws upon countless resources from its writers and performers. To further propel the expansive color and textural fields of the record, we are blessed to play and perform music with a group of musicians who possess not only great talent, but great interpretive ability. They are an extension of our family and their care for the work at hand (and the project at large) informs a dynamic musical contribution to any piece we proudly give our last name. Sonically, the album is as multidimensional as its makers. The same could be said of its long list of influences. So the quilt is sewn, in part, with the brightly colored threads of Queen, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Jimmie Rodgers, Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, Gillian Welch, Aretha Franklin, Walt Disney, Pink Floyd, Kings of Convenience, calypso of the 1950s and country of the 1930s. Rock and roll is here, as always. There are moments of undeniable celebration and camaraderie, others of quiet and lonely exhalation. Throughout the album, we stitched together the boldest red and the calmest green, polka dots and stripes, the roughest denim and the smoothest velveteen. They came together because they are the best patterns we have and because each of us brought our own fabric to the quilting frame.

    We made this record as people who have made records together before - with experienced hands, appreciative hearts, renewed focus, and the knowledge of our good fortune to make music once again.
