    Dad Loves His Work

    Import

    Dad Loves His Work is singer-songwriter James Taylor's tenth studio album. Released in 1981, it is best remembered for the duet with J. D. Souther Her Town Too, which reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Top 5 of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. I Will Follow, London Town and the haunting That Lonesome Road are additional album tracks. This album was certified Platinum in the United States.


    The album's title was, in part, drawn from the reasons for Taylor's divorce from Carly Simon. She gave him an ultimatum: cut back on his music and touring, and spend more time with her and their children, or the marriage was through. The album's title was his answer, and the divorce took place soon after.

    Await Barbarians

    We are pleased to announce the release of Alexis Taylor's second solo album and first for
    Domino, Await Barbarians!


    Taylor's (lead singer of Hot Chip) newest solo effort, Await Barbarians, is a series of songs
    "from the halfway line." Possessing the same immediacy as his music with Hot Chip and the
    adventurousness of his work with About Group, there is a special intimacy to these lyrics,
    a simplicity and candour in his expression of emotion that brings to mind the best singer-songwriter records from Laurel Canyon, though as always with Taylor the moments of
    honesty are matched with a sense of humour, playfulness and fun.


    Await Barbarians follows Taylor's EP from last year, Nayim From The Halfway Line. Alexis
    will be in the US for press and shows in NYC & LA to support his new solo album, while he
    takes part in Atomic Bomb! The Music Of William Onyeabor tribute shows w/ David Byrne,
    Money Mark and members of LCD Soundsystem

    Roger Taylor: Best


    First Ever Best-Of Collection From Queen Drummer


    Yellow Colored Vinyl


    In 2001 Roger Taylor was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of
    Fame with Queen, and is acknowledged as one of the most influential
    drummers in popular music. In addition to founding and wielding
    the sticks with one of the world's best-selling groups, as well as
    collaborating with Robert Plant, Genesis, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Foo
    Fighters, and Gary Numan among others, Roger Taylor has also had a
    brilliant and long career as a songwriter and solo artist.


    Hot on the heels of the Queen + Adam Lambert tour, Omnivore
    Recordings is proud to release the first-ever best of Roger Taylor's solo
    material-simply titled, Roger Taylor : Best.


    With Queen, he wrote or co-wrote hits like "Radio Ga Ga" and
    "Under Pressure," but on his own he's delivered, to date, five critically
    acclaimed solo albums. Roger Taylor : Best draws from those releases
    with 18 tracks-from his first single, "I Wanna Testify" (recorded
    during Queen's News Of The World album sessions) through his latest
    album, Fun On Earth from 2013. In between are key cuts from Fun
    In Space (1981), Strange Frontier (1984), Happiness? (1994), and
    Electric Fire (1998) providing a select survey of Roger's solo work for
    new and old fans alike!


    The double LP has tracks appearing on vinyl for the
    first time. Roger Taylor: Best presents an overview of a rock legend's
    work in front of the stage, the listeners-and the world.

    Translucent Red Vinyl


    A few months after Queen released The Works (featuring
    the Roger Taylor penned Radio Ga Ga), Taylor
    unleashed his second solo album-Strange Frontier.


    While pieces of the record were recorded in Munich while
    Queen was recording The Works, Taylor also worked on
    the material in Switzerland. While once again handling
    the vast majority of instruments and vocals, Taylor took
    advantage of the time in Munich with Queen, with his
    three bandmates making guest appearances on tracks.
    Strange Frontier also contains a co-write and guitar work
    from Status Quo's Rick Parfitt, plus covers of Bruce
    Springsteen's Racing In The Street and Bob Dylan's
    Masters Of War. Production duties are handled by
    Taylor, engineer David Richards and Mack-who Queen
    had worked with since 1980's The Game.

    That's Why I'm Here is singer-songwriter James Taylor's eleventh album. It was released in 1985, four years after his previous effort, Dad Loves His Work [MOVLP893], and contains a cover version of Buddy Holly's Everyday, as well as the participation of a number of artists, including Don Henley, Joni Mitchell and Graham Nash.


    Taylor had found his long-term niche with baby boomer fans now permanently tuned to Soft Rock radio - this was Taylor's first record to spawn three Top Ten adult contemporary hits, with the title track, Only One and a cover of Buddy Holly's Everyday. That's Why I'm Here eventually went platinum.

    Part Of The Blue Note 75 Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    For the second of Cecil Taylor's two Blue Note albums (following Unit Structures), the innovative pianist utilized a sextet comprised of trumpeter Bill Dixon, altoist Jimmy Lyons, both Henry Grimes and Alan Silva on basses and drummer Andrew Cyrille. During the two lengthy pieces, Lyons' passionate solos contrast with Dixon's quieter ruminations while the music in general is unremittingly intense. Both of the Taylor Blue Notes are quite historic and near-classics but, despite this important documentation, Cecil Taylor (other than a pair of Paris concerts) would not appear on records again until 1973.

    Dad Loves His Work

    Recorded amidst a failing marriage, ongoing heroin addiction, alcohol dependency, and a sense of fading commercial prowess, James Taylors Dad Loves His Work is an emotional juggernaut and musical marvel. Long considered a classic of the singer-songwriter domain, the 1981 effort stands as Taylors last real great album and an involving aural artwork that simmers with honesty, conviction, and feeling.



    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition 180g LP marks the first time this classic has been properly remastered. Far exceeding the sonics of Sonys CD reissue, this audiophile version lifts up the cover on a world of sound, with Taylors mellow finger-picked guitar melodies, gently reassuring vocals, and bittersweet deliveries brought to the fore. Listeners will also be able to relax amidst the soft clouds of comforting background singing by ace guests Jennifer Warnes, J.D. Souther, and Peter Asher.



    With the title reflecting the singers answer to his then-wife, Carly Simon, Dad Loves His Work remains a statement of certainty and priority that Taylor invests with devastating poignancy, physiological soulfulness, and universal pathos. Balancing the biting edginess and forlorn despair with equal parts self-deprecating humor and rapier wit, Taylors songwriting on such nuggets as Hard Times, Hour That the Morning Comes, and charged Stand and Fight is among the best of his career.



    No surprise, then, that Taylor wasnt only looking at and reflecting upon his own life, but that of his relationship with his own father and ancestors. The emotional repercussions involved with such looming themes trickle through the harmony-laden music, spurred by the vocalists trademark acoustic guitar, shivering harmonicas, Rhodes pianos, myriad percussive devices, and tasteful synthesizer passages.



    Taylors definitive duet with Souther on Her Town Too bridged both the pop and adult-contemporary charts, catapulting Dad Loves His Work in the Top Ten and past sales of one million copies. Similarly, Taylor expands his horizons on the politically motivated Sugar Trade, co-written by Jimmy Buffett.



    Mobile Fidelitys collectible audiophile 180g LP brings you into Taylors private world with unparalleled intensity and extreme closeness. Taylor feels every word he sings on this record, and now, thanks to meticulous remastering efforts, his expressiveness and sensitivity coming through via unencumbered transparency and dynamic acoustics. This edition of Dad Loves His Work is not to be missed!

    Never Die Young

    Import

    Never Die Young is singer-songwriter James Taylor's twelfth album, released in 1988. The album reached #25 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum by the RIAA. The title track was the most successful single of the album and peaked at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100.


    Both the single "Never Die Young" and the track "Baby Boom Baby" referred to the passage of time. While his aging contemporaries took various steps to keep up with changing fashions in music standards, James Taylor just kept playing a summer concert tour each year and periodically put out an album with songs that reminded his listeners why they liked him so much. The only unusual aspect of the album was that there was no big oldies cover from the '50s or '60s on the album. Every song on Never Die Young was written or co-written by James Taylor.

    Available On Vinyl For The First Time


    October Road is singer-songwriter James Taylor's fifteenth album. It was released in 2002 on CD only. Reaching number four in Billboard 200, the album has been certified Platinum. Now available on vinyl for the first time!


    That warm (if slightly deepened) tenor, singing in its odd accent which combines New England and the North Carolina Piedmont, and that acoustic guitar, with its sparkling, unhurried fingerpicking, remain the most prominent elements in the sound.


    October Road finds Taylor seemingly intent on evoking his own past. The title track, of course, recalls his song Country Road, and Caroline I See You, (even if it refers specifically to his wife), inescapably echoes Carolina in My Mind. Throughout, on what seem like the most personal songs he has written in decades, Taylor appears to be commenting on a second chance he feels he has received.

    When James Taylor releases an album, it is always a much welcomed event to his millions of fans around the globe.
    This superstar singer/songwriter/guitarist is undoubtedly one of America's most important contributors ever to popular
    music.


    After a major run of hit recordings with Apple and Warner Bros. Records throughout most of the 70's, James Taylor
    signed with Columbia Records and began even more decades of gold and platinum successes which have forever stood
    the test of time. His 1988 platinum achievement Never Die Young continued his winning streak.
    Filled with a number of hit singles and definitive album tracks, this masterwork LP kicks off with the smash title track
    Never Die Young. After the first few seconds of his signature guitar riffs and original lyric and vocal delivery, you know you
    are in for an unmistakable James Taylor musical journey.
    More hit sounds abound as his soulful voice and stunning guitar belt out memorable Taylor favorites like Baby Boom
    Baby, the country rock feel of Runaway Boy, as well as the uplifting funk of Sweet Potato Pie.
    The album continues its brilliance with one of his most interesting and clever compositions yet with his love ballad
    Valentine's Day.


    More introspective James Taylor is found on favorites Home by Another Way and Letter in the Mail, which echo the
    brilliance of how James Taylor just reaches millions with his stellar voice and music.
    As a fine closer to this LP, the rhythm and emotion of First of May truly captivate the fans into yearning more and

    Flag

    Flag 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.

    Overlook

    Includes CD


    Maria Taylor has been beguiling listeners since 1997, from her start in Little Red Rocket as a teenager to her time spent as half of the acclaimed duo Azure Ray to her career as a solo artist. Shes released a trio of varied, accomplished, and successful solo albums over six years; 2005s 11:11, 2007s Lynn Teeter Flower, 2009s LadyLuck and in 2010, after a six-year hiatus from Azure Ray, she reunited with Orenda Fink for the bands fourth album, Drawing Down The Moon.


    Taylors journey has carried her from hometown Birmingham, AL, to Athens, GA, to Omaha, NE, and to Los Angeles, CA, and on tours all over the world. Guided by an indomitable inner compass, her instincts called her home to Birmingham in early 2010. She packed her things in LA and drove southeasterly, unsure exactly why but heading back to her family and to the South, which has always greatly influenced her music.


    It was surprising to Taylor then, that after buying her first house and settling in, she was unable to write any songs for an entire year. Concerned, but busy with touring and promotion around Azure Rays new album, she carried on. Then last December during a month-long break, she finally wrote a song, the ruminative and haunting Happenstance, and the floodgates opened. Taylor hid away in her bedroom for two weeks, writing and demo-ing the nine songs that now make up her lush fourth LP Overlook.


    With a distinct, raw sound in mind, Taylor self-produced for the first time and called upon friend and neighbor Lester Nuby III (Verbena, Vulture Whale) to engineer Overlook. She sought to capture the sound of the South, of Alabama and its music scene, enlisting a host of local musicians to flesh out the album and lend their personalities to the songs. These contributions proved invaluable: Browan Lollar (Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit) handled lead guitar on all tracks, while adding acoustic and lap steel throughout; brother Macey (The Mystic Valley Band, A.A. Bondy) played bass on the entire record, adding banjo, organ, and keys; and Nuby provided his formidable drumming skills on two tracks, while Taylor herself played the remaining drum parts. Sister Kate played and sang on a couple of songs, including Matador, and dad Macey, Sr. played mandolin and sang on Bad Idea?, which was recorded completely live after only a few practices, simply seven of her close friends standing in a circle, making music. The sessions ran loose and easy, with family and friends often stopping in and spending time as she recorded. Taylor even hired LA-based but Birmingham-native Daniel Farris to mix the album, and her friend, local artist Margarette Simmons, designed Overlooks artwork.


    In addition to tracking many songs live, Taylor kept a number of her own demo tracks (drum, guitar, keyboard) recorded in her bedroom straight to her computer without a microphone, in the final songs; the result maintains the unguarded honesty captured in the first moments of creation.


    Much of Overlook is about the searching and uncertainties that come with growing up and growing older. The songs vary in sound from alluringly bold and immediate, and softer contemplation. Masterplan is the taut, simmering intro to the albums richness, all thundering drums, jangly guitar, and soaring keys, as Taylors evocative vocals haunt like a warning bell. Matador then shifts gears to a sultry, lusciously modern take on 60s pop strut unlike anything shes written before. Relationship gone-sour tale In A Bad Way follows later in the album and shares a similarly seductive, but looser, groove. The old-time shuffle of Bad Idea? could have been heard in a 1920s speakeasy, while the sunny guitars of This Could Take A Lifetime belie the dark and longing ache found within the songs bedrock. All through Overlook, Taylors voice is illuminating, drawing listeners in with its warm and resolute yet vulnerable grace.
