    Celebrating 6 Decades Of Elvis' Country Soul & Gospel Masterwork


    First Time 180-Gram Audiophile White & Silver Swirl Vinyl


    First Time Gatefold Cover Art & 24 x 24 Striking Poster Insert


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios & Capitol Mastering


    Pressed At R.T.I.


    Contains The Huge Hits Crying In The Chapel, I Believe In The Man In The Sky, & Milky White Way


    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, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!


    As 1960 was coming to a close, Elvis returned to the studios of RCA Nashville and would go on to record his first smash gospel album His Hand In Mine. Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, the amazing album featured a dozen of his most soulful works ever captured on wax like the hit single Crying In The Chapel and more stellar fare such as I Believe In The Man In The Sky, Joshua Fit The Battle and of course the definitive classic title track His Hand In Mine. The Lp soon went on to achieve gold and platinum status and become one of the most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful albums.


    Thanks to his great soulful country workouts on Known Only To Him and the wonderful Milky White Way, this collection of Elvis Presley's gospel hits were just what the fans were yearning for, as the entire album was built around his love for gospel and old-time religious church music.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the first time limited Anniversary Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic His Hand In Mine by Elvis Presley.


    As another groundbreaking installment in our exciting Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, we are pleased to present this masterwork in all its 1960 stereophonic glory.

    This Old Heart Of Mine

    This Old Heart of Mine is the fourth album released by The Isley Brothers in 1966, on the Tamla (Motown) label. The album, their first with the seminal Detroit-based music label, yielded the Isleys' biggest hit in their early period with the title track. Other charted singles including Take Some Time Out for Love and I Guess I'll Always Love You. The album's cover was not controversial at the time, but was criticized years later by activists because it did not depict the three African American brothers, instead using a picture of two white teenage lovers on a beach. Defenders say this was/is totally irrelevant since it was an artistic choice only. The Isley Brothers are today considered another one of the seminal Detroit groups of their era.

    Soul Sick

    There are artists who can command attention. They lean into their songs with an irresistible edge and total emotional connection and stay there. Sallie Ford is one of those artists. On her upcoming new album Soul Sick, out via Vanguard Records, Ford creates music that draws on all of her influences but still comes out her own. From the album's opening line "I woke up feeling sour on the sweetest summer day," the 11 tracks on the album chronicle Ford's journey through anxiety, insecurity, and depression.


    "This is a 'confessional' album. It's about struggling with my issues - some that I've overcome and some that I still carry around. I felt confused, down about life and unsure of myself," states Ford. "On these new songs, it felt good to write on one theme and from one place. All in all, Soul Sick has taught me a lot about myself and helped me to heal."


    That healing is captured throughout the music played on the album. With Mike Coykendall (M. Ward and She & Him) at the helm, it's laced with nostalgic feeling and produced to enhance that essence. "I asked Mike to produce, Ford says. "He loves old rock & roll and always records on tape, but he's also an experimenter, exploring new things with his music.


    Soul Sick finds Ford further mining, updating and perfecting her vintage influences to stand alongside her uncompromising and confessional lyricism. On her first themed album, her doo-wop harmonies, slippery British invasion keyboards, and crunchy, fuzzed-out guitars back Ford's distinctive howl and surround her at-once intimate and confrontational musings on love, depression, and fear.

    They Want My Soul

    The music:

    Spoon's most straight-up, direct and concise rock album ever;
    A certain "return to form" as a straight up American rock band, a restoration of Spoon's trademark authority, confidence and swagger;
    Music runs a gamut from AC/DC-esque guitar-driven songs like the opener "Rent I Pay" to stunning cosmic space disco tracks like "Outlier" to delicately
    pensive album standout "Inside Out".


    The story:

    After 6 years of incessant recording and touring, band took a 4.5 year break between albums. Spoon returns more invigorated and energized than at any
    point in their career;
    Core audience will love the return to Spoon-y form via future greatest hits like Do You, Let Me Be Mine and They Want My Soul;
    The addition of new people around the band and recording process, namely multi-instrumentalist Alex Fischel and legendary producer Dave Fridmann
    (MGMT, Tame Impala, Flaming Lips), has expanded the band's oeuvre into new and exciting sonic terrain, most notable heard in Inside Out, Knock
    Knock Knock and Outlier.

    Live From Alabama (Awaiting Repress)

    In August of 2012, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit assembled in their home state of Alabama in front of a couple of sold-out concert halls to record their first live album, Live From Alabama. After years of hard touring, the critically-lauded band has gelled into a versatile rock and roll squad that is equally at ease performing Muscle Shoals soul to hardcore country to balls-out rock. Live From Alabama's tracklist mines some of Isbell's most popular songs and includes a pair of inspired covers in Neil Young's Like a Hurricane and Candi Staton's Heart on a String.

    Seesaw

    Import


    Seesaw reunites force-of-nature blues-rock vocalist Beth Hart and guitar hero Joe Bonamassa for a second album of choice covers from various musical eras. As with their first outing, Don't Explain, the project is in collaboration with producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Black Crowes). Each of the three principals suggested and selected tracks for the 11-song set list, which mines soulful classics previously made famous by Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Donnie Hathaway, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miles, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Melody Gardot, and Nina Simone.


    The one-two punch of Hart's powerhouse vocals and Bonamassa's scorching solos both honors and reinvents the original recordings. They are backed by the same world class band that kept the grooves going on Don't Explain: Anton Fig (drums, percussion), Carmine Rojas (bass), Blondie Chaplin (rhythm guitar, backing vocals and percussion), Arlan Schierbaum (organ, piano). This time out, their mighty sound is augmented by a horn section, with Lee Thornburg on trumpets and trombones, and Ron Dziubla on saxophones.


    For Hart and Bonamassa, making music together grew out of the friendship and mutual artistic appreciation they developed after crossing paths on the road numerous times, particularly on the festival circuit in Europe. Bonamassa wanted to do a project with her, and came up with the idea for a soul covers record. Shirley, who's produced 12 of Bonamassa's albums, was enthusiastic, and Bonamassa contacted Hart. "When I got the call that he wanted to do a soul record with me, I figured I'd be the background singer. He said 'no, you're singing lead.'" The chemistry clicked, and Don't Explain was released in 2011, followed now by 2013's Seesaw-in between, both Hart and Bonamassa have toured, recorded solo albums, and reached new career highs.


    "What's so cool about these projects is that when Joe and Beth enter the studio, he comes in as a guitar player, and she comes in as a singer," says Shirley. "They're getting together just to play fun music, sing some favorite songs, without the pressure of career issues they might have on solo projects. The point is to pick up and celebrate songs that didn't get their due in the day, and to pay homage to ones that were truly classics. The vibe this time is more upbeat than on Don't Explain, lots of big band horns."

    In Person At The Whiskey A Go Go

    Import

    Recorded at the famous L.A. club Whisky A Go Go in 1966, this album captures the raw energy of a small Otis Redding gig. Playing with his own touring band (not Booker T & the MG's as per his Monterey gig and European performances), this is Otis in his tried & true form - with a kick-ass band that blew the chitlin circuit's roofs off.


    Roaring versions of Respect, I Can't Turn You Loose, These Arms Of Mine and Papa's Got A Brand New Bag are the definitive Otis Redding live tracks anyone should own.

    Pain In My Heart

    Import

    This album works on so many different levels, that it's essential listening for at least three categories of buyer -- fans of Otis Redding and Stax Records (natch), and more general soul listeners, and also anyone serious about their devotion to the work of the Rolling Stones and any other British invasion bands that covered American soul. Pain In My Heart was practically a road map to Mick Jagger and any number of other would-be white soul shouters in the UK, not just on the title track but also numbers like the hard rocking Hey Hey Baby. For someone only 22 years old at the time of these sessions, and just two years past his first 45 rpm record, Redding exudes astonishing power, energy and boldness, though it's all packaged with greater restraint than his subsequent records did. This was the only LP that Redding recorded during the lifetime of his idol, Sam Cooke, and his version of You Send Me is the least stylized of any of his renditions of Cooke's songs -- later on, after Cooke's death, he would throw more of himself into it. The very fact that he was covering Cooke's soul classic shows an essential difference between Redding's and Cooke's early LPs; as Redding was on a soul label, no one tried to make him into a pop singer as that'd done at RCA with Cooke -- thus, he was running on all cylinders right out of the starting gate, though he wouldn't get really interesting or show his full depth until two albums later. But even covering Rufus Thomas's The Dog, Richard Berry's Louie Louie, Little Richard's Lucille, or Ben E. King's Stand By Me, he's already doing 70% of what we came to expect from Otis Redding in the years ahead -- his writing, apart from Security, These Arms Of Mine and That's What My Heart Needs, was still somewhat less than memorable, but this is still a first-rate debut.

    "Pimps whores pushers dopers gangsters and bottom of the human chain shit-heels. Now you're probably thinking I'm writing about major record companies and their unscrupulous executives and lawyers. You could be right but this time YOU'RE WRONG! I'm describing the characters in my album '13' Some I knew some I invented some are true some are false some I liked some I didn't. But they all had a story to tell and I told it none of 'em seem to care and I don't either have fun

    - Lee Hazlewood


    "He took my voice off the album and put his voice on the album. Now don't forget these were in my keys, it was my charts, it was my everything. Lee Hazlewood was not even remotely going to be considered as an artist for this album and that's the way he wanted it."

    - Larry Marks


    13 was never supposed to be a Lee Hazlewood album. It is perhaps the strangest record in one of the most varied discographies in music. The bombastic brass-heavy funk, deep blues and soul paired with Hazlewood's subterranean baritone would be best enjoyed with a tall Chivas in an off-strip seedy Vegas lounge. It also features one of Hazlewood's greatest lines ever "One week in San Francisco, existing on Nabisco, cookies and bad dreams, sad scenes and dodging paranoia."


    By 1972 Lee Hazlewood had settled in his new homeland of Sweden. His days were spent carousing, making movies with Torbjörn Axelman and releasing albums. To keep up his prolific recorded output, Lee began to mine the recently defunct LHI Records archives for material. One such gem, was an unreleased album by Larry Marks.


    In what became the final days of LHI, staff producer Larry Marks' sonic fingerprints were on nearly everything; songwriting, producing, arranging, and singing. His most profound contribution was steering the creative direction of the label towards soul and R&B, arranging the downright funky LHI singles by Barbara Randolph and Jon Christian. Larry's concept was to take Hazlewood's strongest compositions and arrange them in a soul vibe. An album was completed, but with no distribution in America and no funding, Lee had no vehicle to release Larry's record. The tapes were taken to Sweden, Larry's voice was wiped and Hazlewood's was dubbed .13 was born.

    The Way and Color

    Pivoting from the melodic psych of their previous efforts, TEEN's
    second full-length The Way And Color shows the young group
    condently shifting direction with their distinctly modern,
    R&B-informed pop.


    Searching for inspiration following their last album, the band's
    three sisters - lead singer Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie
    Lieberson and drummer Katherine Lieberson - found direction
    from a simple lineup tweak, joining with bassist Boshra AlSaadi
    to mine a new side of the band's sound.
    What emerged was the ambitious scope of The Way And Color.
    Recorded over a ten-day session in upstate New York, the band
    infuses their brooding pop with minimalist beats and complex
    harmonies, inspired by D'Angelo and Erykah Badu's classic
    R&B.


    Amidst the album's rich patchwork, Teeny emerges as a
    expressive, inspired frontwoman, touching on themes of
    relationships, womanhood and power. The record's crisp
    production from Daniel Schlett (DIIV) showcases her voice's
    stylistic agility, from the theatrical vamping of "Rose 4 U" to the
    twisting, soulful "More Than I Ask For." Toying with genre, TEEN
    successfully trades in the reverb for a punchy clarity and
    newfound maturity.

    Thriller

    Ranked 20/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Thriller is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was originally released on November 30, 1982, by Epic Records as the follow-up to Jackson's critically and commercially successful 1979 album Off the Wall. Thriller explores similar genres to those of Off the Wall, including pop, R&B, rock, post-disco, and adult contemporary music.


    Recording sessions took place between April and November 1982 at Westlake Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California, with a production budget of $750,000, assisted by producer Quincy Jones. Of the nine tracks on the album, four of them were written by Jackson himself. Seven singles were released from the album, all of which reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Three of the singles had music videos released. Baby Be Mine and The Lady in My Life were the only tracks that were not released as singles.

    The Deslondes

    Hailed by NPR as "deft assemblers of a sound that traverses decades and styles with humble grace," New Orleans band The Deslondes mine from the rich history of American music to craft their compelling and wholly unique eponymous debut album, released on New West Records.


    Co-produced by the band and in-demand producer Andrija Tokic (Benjamin Booker, Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff) at his Nashville studio The Bomb Shelter, the 12 tracks are influenced by classic soul, rock 'n' roll, R&B, folk, roots country, swamp-boogie, honky-tonk and pre-war music and introduce a collective of gifted singer-songwriters with a deep love for the past and a palpable passion for the present. "They manage to resurrect a lost sound, exclaimed Rolling Stone in their "20 Reasons To Love This Year" preview, adding, "Stax and Sun records are distinct touch points, as are upright-bass-driven melodies - while giving it a modern, vibrant swing, building on the foundations of old-time traditions without sounding like they're stepping out of a time machine."


    Comprised of five distinct songwriting voices, The Deslondes endeavor to carry on the traveling troubadour tradition of their heroes Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and Townes Van Zandt. The Deslondes have also toured the country extensively and have supported the Alabama Shakes, Old Crow Medicine Show, Hurray for the Riff Raff, The Lumineers, John Fullbright, Michael Kiwanuka, Spirit Family Reunion and performed at last summer's Newport Folk Festival.

    Christopher Cross

    1st Time on 180 Gram Vinyl


    Mastered from the Original Tapes


    Gatefold Cover


    The legendary Christopher Cross set the music world on fire back in 1979 with his superstar brand of rock, pop and soulful
    melodies which landed him at the top of the charts almost immediately with his debut self-titled masterpiece Christopher Cross.
    Augmented with the brilliant musicianship of master musicians like Michael McDonald, Nicolette Larson, Don Henley, Eric
    Johnson, Larry Carlton, Valerie Carter, Billy Payne, Michael Omartian and J.D Souther, the Christopher Cross album would prove to
    become the huge catalyst for things to come.


    For the next two years, the singles and hit album tracks would take the artist to the top of all the popular music charts as this
    masterwork would eventually take the artist to the 1981 Grammy Awards, where he would go on to win in five major categories,
    including Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best New Artist Of The Year. This historic feat hasn't been
    matched since, and it's easy to hear why the music tells the story.
    The nine performances contained within the Christopher Cross album were of legendary proportion, which still makes this
    one of the most successful albums of the classic rock era.


    No stone is left unturned, as this masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit
    with smashes like the number one Sailing which forever etched the title superstar to this legend, as well as more number ones and
    top charters like his first hit single Ride Like The Wind which crossed unto all radio formats back in 1979. And who could forget the
    amazing background vocals of fellow superstar Michael McDonald of The Doobie Brothers!
    More Cross magic continues with the rockin' opener Say You'll Be Mine duet with the late great Nicolette Larson and his jazz
    centerpiece Spinnin' featuring the golden voice of Valerie Carter.
    As one of the most enduring albums in history, the Christopher Cross LP also shows the guitar showmanship of this legend with significant guitar workouts on tracks like Minstrel Gigolo, The Light Is On and the hit single Never Be The Same.


    All in all, a collection of songs which took the fans by storm, forever associating the title superstar to the Christopher Cross name.
    As another stunning release in our Friday Music Christopher Cross Original Master series, we are pleased to announce for the
    very first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl his amazing debut Christopher Cross. Mastered impeccably from the original Warner
    Bros. Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music studios and at Capitol Records in Hollywood, this amazing classic truly shines

    Moanin'

    On their second album, The Hive Dwellers make with a low, wailing expression of sorrow (or suffering). Moanin' is a collection of field recordings made at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, Washington. It's a noisy pop runaway freight train that stirs the blues soul rockin' of their debut album Hewn from the Wilderness to a new beat music recipe. The Hive Dwellers' Calvin, Gabriel and Evan have toured across the United States and left a wake of frug and shimmy shines that won't be forgotten any time soon. You beat the tambourine to "Streets of Olympia Town" in Knoxville; stomped the floorboards to "Montgomery Hammer" in Buffalo; knocked a heady bongo to "Baby Be Mine" in Oakland.


    C'mon, join in Moanin' for a while.

    Hot Fuss (Discontinued)

    Import


    The Killers match postpunk guitars with a synthesizer overlay that recalls '80s New Wave without burying their sound in nostalgia. On their debut, Hot Fuss, frontman Brandon Flowers plumbs his imagination for tales of murdered lovers (Jenny Was a Friend of Mine, Midnight Show), voyeurism (Mr. Brightside), and sexual confusion (the single Somebody Told Me), Flowers and his mates are obviously canny students; the total effect is of a playacted obsession, but one made irresistible by their skillful, catchy songs. If there's an occasional misstep (the painfully earnest line I got soul but I'm not a soldier from All These Things That I've Done), it seems of a piece with the Killers' influences. As it is, Hot Fuss is one of several recent releases that bring a diverting faux glamour to the mainstream rock scene. --Rickey Wright

    Tigerlily


    Natalie Merchant Tigerlily On Numbered Limited-Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP


    Half-Speed Mastered From The Original Master Tapes For Astounding Sonics And Detail


    Five-Times Platinum! 1995 Gem A Vocal Tour-De-Force


    The 10,000 Maniacs were at their peak when group founder and scintillating vocalist Natalie Merchant announced that she was leaving the band to pursue a solo career. It took her four months to record Tigerlily, a gorgeously detailed folk-pop debut that became a permanent fixture on the album charts for a year after its 1995 release.


    The five-times platinum set spawned three giant hits-"Wonder," "Carnival," and the haunting "Jealousy"-that simultaneously crossed over to the pop, adult-contemporary, and mainstream singles charts. It's easy to understand why. On Tigerlily, Merchant turns in a vocal performance for the ages, spinning majestic webs of mellow atmosphere woven with rhythmic textures and low-key movements. This is a mood masterpiece.


    Remastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelity's collectable version of Tigerlily mines every last nuance and delicate tone from this intimate gem. Merchant's beautiful voice-her precious coos, soulful inflections, and whisper-soft purrs harken back to the Jazz Era-is presented with an up-close clarity and full-bodied richness that enhance the album's deeply emotional feel. She uses volume and pitch as a painter utilizes shades on a canvas. Subtle and tender, her phrasing and crescendos underscore the personal nature of the lyrics. Merchant sings about mature topics most songwriters lack the courage to explore, probing the painful loss of a longtime partner on "Beloved Wife," actor River Phoenix's tragic death on "River," and life-altering myths on "San Andreas Fault."


    The vocalist's bracing conviction is matched by small-scale acoustic frameworks that don't let a note go to waste. And Mobile Fidelity's engineers worked to make sure you hear all of them. Aligned on a wide soundstage, the discerning mix of Hammond organs, pianos, chamber percussion, and bluesy guitars come across with their understated intentions intact. Balances are superb, dynamics are grand. There is no better way to experience and enjoy the rich sonic fabrics on this album. The results will leave you hypnotized.

    Ray Charles (Awaiting Repress)


    First Time On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl!


    Ray Charles' Stunning Atlantic Records Debut!


    The One That Started The Genius Of Soul Phenomenon!


    Mastered For The First Time From The Original Monophonic Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Ray Charles was the premiere architect singer/songwriter/musician whose "genius" of combining jazz, blues
    with gospel most certainly began the American soul music movement. This modern form of R&B which would become
    an American way of life forever etched itself in total with the release of his classic #1 hit single I Got a Woman from
    his stunning debut 1957 album Ray Charles.


    Fused with heavy blues, gospel and rock and roll, I Got a Woman was one of Ray's very first top charting hits
    soon to be followed by other #1 smash hit singles like Mess Around and A Fool for You. More hit singles graced his first
    album as well with Hallelujah I Love Her So, Ain't That Love and This Little Girl of Mine. The Ray Charles album itself
    on its own merit is truly a Greatest Hits LP, whereby most of these early Ray Charles' hit tracks have been covered
    hundreds of times by some of the most important voices in popular music, like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Steve
    Miller Band, Van Morrison, Peggy Lee, Johnny Winter, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder and many others.


    Also included on this debut masterpiece are some of Ray Charles' more definitive blues rockers like the powerful
    Come Back Baby, the rockin' Greenbacks, the #1 blues rocker Mary Ann, and the brilliant soul sounds of Don't You
    Know, Drown in My Own Tears and Losing Hand.


    The Ray Charles album forever etched the name superstar and genius with Ray Charles as the LP reached the
    upper rungs of the popular, jazz and R&B charts and has become an American institution which will forever stand the
    test of time. Being one of his rarest LP's of his career, the magnificent album has not been officially released on vinyl
    in over five decades and fetches hundreds of dollars for a mint used copy if you can even find one.


    Friday Music is very honored to announce the first time ever 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl LP of the Ray Charles'
    classic Ray Charles. As another installment in our treasured Ray Charles/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series, his
    amazing debut LP is mastered from the original monophonic Atlantic Records' tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music
    Studios and at Capitol Mastering with Ron McMaster. This masterwork truly sounds exceptional and will become one
    of the more important roots albums to be reissued in quite some time for the audiophile vinyl domain.


    This limited edition release also comes with the original album cover graphics of Marvin Israel, featuring the
    stunning liner notes by Guy Remark.


    The album will be packaged in a poly bag to preserve the rich details of the legendary cover art as well as a poly
    lined inner sleeve to protect your vinyl purchase for years to come. I Got a Woman!!!
