    Analog Man

    Grammy Award winning rock and roll legend Joe Walsh returns with the Fantasy Records/Concord release Analog Man, his first solo album in two decades! Analog Man is both modern and timelessly soulful, packed with Walsh's beloved wit, charm and chops, all encompassed by an incredibly raw and intimate sound.


    Features Walsh's amusing take on the 21st century in the title track and Lucky That Way which boasts a guest appearance by Ringo Starr. The 10-track album was co-produced by Jeff Lynne with Tommy Lee James co-writing some of the songs. It's been 20 years and I have a lot to say, said Walsh. These songs come from the heart.


    Walsh, best known for his powerful guitar lick, joined the Eagles in 1976 and is credited for bringing a harder rock sound to the band with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live. A singer/songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Walsh has entertained for more than four decades, not only as a solo artist, but as a part of admired acts like The James Gang and Barnstorm. Fitting to a true Analog Man, the release is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl with a download card.

    Trouble Man

    Marvin Gaye's classic soundtrack to the 1972 motion picture Trouble Man starring Robert Hooks, Paul Winfield and Ralph Waite. The album reached the top 20 of the Billboard 200, peaking at #12. The title track was released as a single in November 1972 and became a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100,
    peaking at #7. The song became one of Marvin's signature songs for the remainder of his life. More recently, the soundtrack was referenced positively in the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Falcon (Anthony Mackie) calling it the most important thing Captain America (Chris Evans) missed during his cryogenic slumber.

    Soul Christmas

    Considered One Of The Best Rock N Roll Holiday Records Of All Time And Includes A Roster Of Legendary Soul Artists From Atlantic Records' Halcyon Years Of 1960s Soul


    Mastered From The Original Stereo Source With Lacquers Cut At Sam Phillips Recording Service In Memphis


    180g Vinyl Housed In A Single Pocket Tip-On Stoughton Paper-Wrapped UV-Gloss Sleeve


    Pressed On Colored Vinyl


    Originally released as an Atlantic holiday compilation in 1968 and long out of print on vinyl, Soul Christmas is an 11 track collection of songs featuring Soul legends such as Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Clarence Carter, William Bell, King Curtis, and Booker T & The MGs. Apart from nods to classics like White Christmas done by Otis, Booker T's Jingle Bells, and the R&B favorite What Are You Doing New Year's Eve (featuring Sax man King Curtis along with a guitar solo by Duane Allman), the songs are tailor-made originals that fit the style of the respective artists. Carter's Back Door Santa is a hilariously salacious cut; Tex gives us a preacher-like I'll Make Everyday Christmas; and Thomas is at her most cute and innocent with Gee Whiz, It's Christmas. Redding's version of Merry Christmas Baby is an obvious standout, while Bell's Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday is the only bona fide charted single. The album is ranked #9 on Rolling Stone's 25 Greatest Christmas Albums of All Time list.

    Mr. Tambourine Man (MONO)

    Ranked 232/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The Byrds burst upon an already fertile pop/rock music scene in the spring of 1965 with a stunning retooling of Bob Dylan's Mr. Tambourine Man that changed everything. The debut album of the same name that followed, featuring mindblowing folk-rock gems like The Bells Of Rhymney, I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better and Chimes Of Freedom, was so aromatically intoxicating it even lit a fire under the Beatles across the Atlantic, beavering away on Rubber Soul. The Mr. Tambourine Man longplayer is so bountiful it almost doubles as a Byrds greatest hits, volume one. Here Without You and I Knew Id Want You weave a sense of mystery into the Byrds' eerie harmonic tapestry. And All I Want To Do, along with Spanish Harlem Incident, once again, connect Dylan's magic to the pop charts in a way only McGuinn, Crosby, Clark, Hillman and Clarke could pull off.

    Unavailable for over 40 years, we're proud to present the first ever reissue of this monumental recording in its original, highly-sought-after mono incarnation, cut directly from the original Columbia Recordings analog mono masters, with perfect artwork restoration and meticulously faithful mastering.

    Fear Not For Man

    Fear Not For Man was one of the first albums to be released by Fela following the sacking of his Kalakuta Republic compound by 1,000 soldiers on 18 February 1977. Fela, along with many other Kalakuta residents, was brutally beaten; his mother, then aged 77, was thrown out of a window, fracturing a leg.


    The army set fire to the compound, destroying six Afrika 70 vehicles, all Fela's master tapes and band equipment, a four-track recording studio, and all the community members' personal belongings. It is doubtful, contrary to some sources, Fear Not For Man was recorded after the attack - doubt which is dispelled by neither the gruesome front sleeve design, showing blood flowing down Fela's face.


    His response came later, on albums such as Unknown Soldier (1979) and Coffin For Head Of State (1980); Fela's practice of no longer performing a song live once he had released it on record is the reason for the two/three year gap between the attack and the release of these albums.

    Man About Town

    Man About Town is the fourth full-length record from Grammy nominated recording artist, Mayer Hawthorne.


    On Man About Town, Hawthorne is back to handling the lion's share of production. He also played damn near every instrument on the album and penned every track. His songwriting pulls from his life and observations; his heartache and joy. Sometimes it's groovy, other times he's vulnerable and sincere. It's the shit people listen to when they wanna get drunk and stoned and sentimental. The reason? Mayer Hawthorne stays making that timeless, soulful, baby-making music.

    and partner Ray Charles, in addition to manning the
    88s, blow on the alto saxophone for two numbers,

    portrays the 1957 collaboration within a huge, naturally
    vibrant soundstage. Mastered from the original master

    bare the relaxed, bluesy, often-boppish jazz on display
    from these two giants. With stellar support, the two

    Rubber Soul (Awaiting Repress)

    Ranked 5/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Sourced From the Original Master Tapes


    Cut at Abbey Road Studios


    Pressed on 180 gram vinyl


    From a modern perspective, this is where things start to get very interesting. Breaking out of the routine of squeezing albums between touring, Rubber Soul is the result of their first extended period in the studio.


    The production is open and spacious, adorned but not yet overcrowded with new instruments and ideas. The songs themselves are like little Pop Art vignettes, where the lyrics are starting to match the quality of the melodies and arrangements. Even a simple, witty rocker such as Drive My Car is played with such tight grooviness (listen to the synchronised bass and guitar) that it practically sparkles with self-amusement.


    Lennon, whose personality and leadership has been strongly at the fore throughout the early Beatles, really raises his game on Rubber Soul, with such thoughtful, breakthrough classics as Norwegian Wood (which showcases Harrison on a sitar), Nowhere Man, Girl and the utterly majestic In My Life (replete with George Martin's flighty harpsichord solo), surely one of the most perfect songs ever written.


    Lyrically, McCartney lags behind, but in some ways his lighter, poppier songs help keep Rubber Soul fresh and bubbly, while his melodic bass-playing takes a huge leap forward, propelling everything. There is a crisp innocence about this album, a sense of sweet delight and joyful discovery.


    A team consisting of some of the best producers and engineers in the recording industry were brought together and would spend 4 long years mixing and mastering with some of the most state of the art recording equipment. Treating these records much like a science experiment, engineers ran extensive tests before copying the analog master tapes over into a digital format using 24-bit/192 kHz resolution, and carefully removing clicks, vocal pops and poor edits. Never altering the original songs them selves, just polishing them up a bit.

    An Innocent Man on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Infectious Doo-Wop, Carefree Soul, Harmonious Pop a Testament to Music of Joel's Childhood


    Album Sounded Mediocre For the Longest Time-No Longer: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Allows You to Hear This Pleasing Set With Fresh Ears


    Another Joel Blockbuster: Seven-Times Platinum 1983 Affair Includes "Uptown Girl," "For the Longest Time," "An Innocent Man," "Tell Her About It"


    After making The Nylon Curtain, Billy Joel felt the need to exhale and get back to the carefree music of his childhood. He also met supermodel Christie Brinkley, who brought serious degrees of levity and romance to his world. In love, relaxed, and out to have fun, the singer crafted An Innocent Man, arguably the most easygoing and pleasing album of his career. Featuring four Top 40 pop singles and the same number of Top 5 Adult Contemporary hits to grace the Billboard charts, the record remains a commercial staple.


    An essential title in Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, An Innocent Man is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI. The resulting presentation effortlessly outshines that heard on all previous editions of this 1983 set. Particularly, the effervescent harmonies now possess an airiness and extension that lends to realistic tonal decay. Instruments are balanced and placed on a wider, deeper soundstage, contributing improved to improved imaging and spaciousness. Joel's voice, too, comes across with tremendous clarity, presence, and body. These songs have never sounded so contagious.


    Per usual, Joel proves a melodic jukebox. The vocalist's grasp on structure, hooks, and delivery help make this batch of songs among his most beloved, easy to hum, and impossible to ignore. Much of the appeal resides in Joel's understanding of the early rock and roll, doo-wop, and soul that he grew up hearing in New York, and the manners in which the popular songwriters favored simplicity over complexity, good-natured vibes over seriousness, and romantic charm over introspective sadness.


    Whether floating on a cloud on the giddy "Uptown Girl" (check out his falsetto), doubling as both the lead and background vocalist on the reminiscent-themed "The Longest Time," or tapping gospel undercurrents on the tribute "Keeping the Faith," Joel revels in 50s and 60s pop constructs, turning out amiable refrains and unforgettable moods. Love perfumes the air, and Joel can't get enough, and it's a feeling he passes on to his listeners.


    As the calm before stormier periods in his life, and a timeless connection to America's finest pop music traditions, An Innocent Man is indeed innocent-a guiltless pleasure that keeps on giving.

    The Original Sound Of New Orleans Soul 1960-76

    For more than ten years Soul Jazz Records have been exploring and documenting the sound of New Orleans Funk. Now they turn their attention to the flipside of this musical coin - New Orleans Soul.The main force behind New Orleans Soul is Allen Toussaint, a virtual one-man hit-making machine in the 1960s, writing, arranging and producing hit after hit for an unending list of unbelievably talented local singers such as Eldridge Holmes, Maurice Williams, Betty Harris, Ernie K Doe and Diamond Joe all of whom are featured. New Orleans is also a city of great musical families. Vocalist Aaron Neville was the brother of Art Neville (who formed The Meters) and later in the 1970s joined with brother Cyril to form The Neville Brothers. Soul vocalist supreme Willie Tee is also known as Wilson Turbinton, who alongside brother Earl, formed the super-heavy funk band The Gaturs and backed the Mardi Gras Indian group The Wild Magnolias.

    Tyranny Of Souls

    As the 20th century ground
    to a halt, Bruce was busy
    reconvening with the Iron
    Maiden family, and contributing to the most spectacular
    and undeniable comeback in heavy metal
    history. As a result, there was a brief pause in the
    forward grind of his solo work. But even as Maiden
    returned to the greatest of global heights, Bruce's
    idiosyncratic muse was as restless as ever. Seven
    years on from the glories of The Chemical Wedding,
    the sixth chapter in the great man's solo journey
    appeared. A more varied and introspective affair
    than its predecessor, Tyranny Of Souls touched upon
    balls-out hard rock ("Devil On A Hog"),
    gallivanting, state-of-the-art melodic metal
    ("Abduction") and hazy, prog-fuelled psychedelia
    (the exquisite "Navigate The Seas Of The Sun"- a
    song inspired by cult author Erich von DÄniken's
    theory of extra-terrestrial life on Earth in the distant
    past). The album's title track drew from Shakespeare's
    Macbeth, with all the pitch-black melodrama
    that such a conceit demands, while "Kill Devil Hill"
    paid tribute to aviation pioneers the Wright Brothers'
    first triumphant flight in 1903.

    Desperate Souls of Tortured Times

    Welcome to the Taurean Empire; a decaying land where disease, war and corruption is rife. A wretched place of man and beast, where deception, fear and despair fills every dank alleyway and the stench of suffering drifts across endless, sun-scorched plains. As way of ensuring safe passage through this hellish hour, let us introduce your guides for the journey; four road-hardened mortals, brought together by luck, power and coincidence. Ladies and Gentlemen, take up arms and go safely as Age of Taurus show you a world inhabited by the Desperate Souls of Tortured Times....UK based Age of Taurus make no frills Doom-laden heavy metal, with an emphasis on HEAVY. Produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Angel Witch, Hexvessel, Ghost), 'Desperate Souls of Tortured Times' is a 42 minute collection of material written during their transition over the past three years. It's an unashamedly heavy voyage down a road less travelled, where each of the seven songs acts as a chapter from an altogether longer tale. Monstrous, mountain-shaking riffs are order of the day in the Empire, stepping aside only for Riddell's searing leads to take hold, whilst the lock-tight Bruce/Claydon rhythm section underpins all. Heading the charge from centre stage, Wright's lyrics act as a vivid narrative, painting pictures of ancient ritual and sprawling landscapes, somewhat reminiscent of Manilla Road and Brocas Helm in their prime. Some might assume that DSOTT is a concept album, however in reality, Age of Taurus is more like a 'concept band', intent on delivering undiluted and intriguing heavy metal to all that will listen.

    Man-Child (Speakers Corner)

    After his early avant-garde years with Blue Note Records, Herbie Hancock achieved much success with pop music fans by gradually turning towards a mixture of Afro-American styles in which he combined soul, jazz and funk. Having composed the soundtrack to Bill Cosby's animated children's show Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids and released a popular family-orientated album entitled Fat Albert Rotunda, Hancock stated that instead of looking for jazz musicians who could play funky music, he had searched for funk musicians with a feeling for jazz. That this concept functions only too well is demonstrated in the funky album Man-Child, which features such brilliant jazz musicians as Wayne Shorter, Bennie Maupin and Ernie Watts. But wait! There's no narcissistic showing off here as in a jam session. The whole band performs as one, playing concentrated grooves around Hancock's carefully intertwined electronic sounds. The result is a fast-paced funky style, due to the collective efforts of the band, although each member is given ample opportunity to show off his prowess in short solo interludes and thus delight the listener with his unique style.

    • Bud Brisbois (trumpet)

    • Garnett Brown (trombone)

    • Dick Hyde (tuba, bass trombone)

    • Wayne Shorter (soprano saxophone)

    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.

    Real Love (Discontinued)

    Two-time Grammy nominated soul man Ryan Shaw and Dynotone Records present Real Love, the follow-up to his acclaimed debut This Is Ryan Shaw. Called a massive talent by Billboard and first-class by Entertainment Weekly, the success of the New York-based singer's debut led to a pair of Grammy nominations for 'Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance' and opening slots for John Legend, Joss Stone, and even Van Halen. Produced by veteran Jimmy Bralower (Eric Clapton, Hall & Oates) and Johnny Gale (Ronnie Spector), each song on Real Love explores a different side of love, from the emotional to the spiritual.


    The horn blasts and gospel hollers on Karina envelops take-me-back heartbreak through the church choir while the Jerry Ragovoy gem You Don't Know Nothing About Love delivers goose bump inducing vocal gymnastics. From rockers like That Is Why, the simmering funk of Can't Hear the Music, to slow grooves like Evermore and Morning, Noon & Night, Real Love runs the gamut of classic American soul music, all with a modern twist, featuring Shaw's extraordinary vocals. Guest appearances by Robert Randolph, Al Kooper, and the Soul Survivors help cook up what Ryan calls a gumbo infused with soul, rock and two tablespoons of gospel.
