    ''Hornsby's Smashing Debut...An iconic musical Americana...A Perfect Album!''


    Bruce Hornsby and the Range made a spectacular musical debut.''The Way It Is'' is a poignant, soulful, and powerful album with a flawless tracklist, beautiful melodies, feel-good rock numbers, phenomenal ballads, and socially conscious tunes such as the title track. There isn't a minute of ''The Way It Is'' that suggests it's a debut album. The album was an instant classic, one of the most complete and cherished recordings of the 1980s that went on to win the 1986 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Not since Elton John and Billy Joel came along, had a piano player made such a major impact on the pop/rock music scene.

    Perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that the music is so accomplished, Hornsby was already a consummate musician and songwriter when he made it. The record presented a unique, fresh sound, distinguished by Hornsby's remarkable, whimsical piano playing. ''The Way It Is'' was unlike anything else on the radio at the time, a combination of pop, rock, folk, jazz, classical, bluegrass and country music. The band incorporates a wide range of instruments in the songs to support this mix - mandolin, guitar, violin, piano, and even harmonica. The songwriting is fantastic, Hornsby paints vivid portraits of life in the mountain ranges, winding rivers, jagged coasts, towering forests, and stretching farmlands of his beloved Virginia. He maintains a hopeful outlook for love and happiness even during tough times both emotionally and economically. Fellow musician Huey Lewis is featured on the album, lending his harmonica and vocal talents to the track, ''Down the Road Tonight''. Lewis also helped produce the song, along with the track, ''The Long Race'' and ''The River Runs Low''.

    The Way It Is

    The Way It Is is Bruce Hornsby and the Range's debut album, released in 1986. Led by its hit title track, the album went on to achieve multi-Platinum status and helped the group to win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.


    The group has a distinct sound of its own, often led by Hornsby's bright piano chords and elastic tenor. There is New Age music here, as well as Jazz and Country, and the mixture is presented naturally by musicians who seem to have been playing with each other for some time.


    It's no surprise that the music is so accomplished. Hornsby was no teenage neophyte when he made it, having kicked around the music business and gotten into his thirties, and the band includes such veterans as David Mansfield, who remembered as a member of Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder troupe and the Alpha Band, as well as being a film composer.

    That's The Way It Is

    First 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.


    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 180 Gram Audiophile Soundtrack Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic That's The Way It Is by Elvis Presley.

    That's The Way Love Is

    When "That's The Way Love Is," from the album M.P.G. became such a huge hit, Motown issued an album of the same name, and included the title song as its centerpiece. The album, which went Top 20 R&B, is also significant for Marvin's cover versions of recent pop hits, particularly "Abraham, Martin and John" (a U.K. hit) and "Yesterday," now recognized as one of the greatest interpretations of a Beatles song.

    The Way Is Read (Pre-Order)

    Nonesuch Records releases The Way Is Read, a twelve-song album by the English trio The Staves-Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor (all vocals)-and New York City-based ensemble yMusic. After being commissioned in 2016 by Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Festival to collaborate on a live performance piece, The Staves delved deep into yMusic's catalogue of contemporary classical compositions to find pieces suited to their lyrics and vocals. While the Festival is known for bringing musicians together for one-off performances, this is the first time one of those partnerships has made the leap into a studio album. The LP was produced by Rob Moose and Jessica Staveley-Taylor and mixed and engineered by Brian Joseph at his studio, Hive, in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.


    The two groups will come together live again at a series of special shows at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis on December 1 and 2, and they also will perform on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion on December 16. The Way Is Read is available to pre-order now from iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, along with an instant download of the album track Trouble on My Mind, which can be heard on Spotify. You can watch a video for that song, directed by yMusic flautist Alex Sopp, here:


    Emily Staveley-Taylor says of the collaboration, Our aim from the outset was to truly collaborate with yMusic. We wanted to feel like instruments and join in with some of yMusic's existing work, using our voices in ways we hadn't previously explored. We chopped up compositions and put them together again in new ways. We took old folk songs and made them abstract. The idea of forming an orchestra with these incredible musicians was fascinating. What we have ended up with is everything we'd hoped, more than we dreamed, and hopefully the tip of the iceberg.


    Rob Moose of yMusic adds, When Justin raised the possibility of our groups collaborating, we immediately upped the stakes by focusing on a combination of new Staves songs and transformations of yMusic's composed works. It was as much a thrill to hear songs emerge organically over sections of intricate chamber music as it was satisfying to strip songs of the instrument that created them, whether guitar or piano, in order to craft new connective tissue. This project was born of voice memos sent back and forth across the seas, two frenetic days in a Manhattan rehearsal space, a festival set, and a single day of recording in the woods outside of Eau Claire.


    The Staves, also known as Jessica, Camilla and Emily Staveley-Taylor, moved to Minneapolis from London in the summer of 2016, where they lived for a year in order to be closer to Eau Claire, Wisconsin, friend and collaborator Justin Vernon's hometown, which has become a creative hub and second home to them. The sisters have worked with Stones and Who producer Glyn Johns, as well as Laura Marling and Ryan Adams producer Ethan Johns. In addition to their three albums and several EPs, The Staves have headlined tours across North America and Europe and performed on tours with Bon Iver, Florence and the Machine, Angus and Julia Stone, and The Civil Wars. The New York Times said of their 2015 Vernon-produced Nonesuch debut, If I Was, the songs are illuminated from within, and Magnet said, The perfection just goes on and on until you start to wonder: Are they human?


    Hailed by Performance Today's Fred Child as one of the groups that has really helped to shape the future of classical music, yMusic comprises six New York City instrumentalists-violinist Rob Moose, violist Nadia Sirota, cellist Gabriel Cabezas, clarinettist Hideki Aomori, flutist Alex Sopp, and trumpeter CJ Camerieri-flourishing in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration has attracted the attention of high profile collaborators-from Paul Simon to Ben Folds to JosÉ González-and inspired an expanding repertoire of original works by some of today's foremost composers, including Nico Muhly and Andrew Norman.

    Any Other Way

    Known by genre aficionados as one of the
    greatest singers and most riveting stage
    presences in soul music, Jackie Shane has
    remained largely unknown outside Toronto,
    where her career briefly flowered in the
    1960s. Beyond her unmistakable gift of the
    gab, Shane is a pioneer of transgender rights,
    born in a male body but unabashedly living
    her entire life as a woman at a time when to
    do so seemed unthinkable.


    Any Other Way
    is the first artist-approved collection of
    Ms. Shane's work, collecting all six of her
    45s and every highlight from the legendary
    1967 live sessions at the Sapphire Tavern,
    including three mind blowing, previouslyunreleased
    tracks. Rob Bowman's 20,000
    word essay is Jackie's first communication
    with the public in nearly half a century,
    telling for the first time ever Jackie Shane's
    story in her own words.


    This deluxe two album set is
    copiously illustrated with never-beforeseen

    So far we only reissued classic AGNOSTIC FRONT albums from the 80s and early 90s, but we all know this NEW YORK HARDCORE machine cant be stopped and that they are still going strong until this very day! Therefor the next reissue on STRENGTH RECORDS is one of the bands more recent, but certainly not their least records, 2011s MY LIFE, MY WAY! Originally released on NUCLEAR BLAST, the original pressing is already long gone and sold out, with some of the versions selling for top dollar on the known auction sites. We reckon that great music should be available for everyone who wants to hear it for a fair price, and MY LIFE, MY WAY can definitely be classified under great New York hardcore music with modern day classics such as City Streets, Us Against The World, My Way, Until The Day I Die and The Sacrifice!

    Way Out Weather

    Hearing Steve, I was completely blown away, beyond; it made me want to be a part of it myself. - Kurt Vile


    RA heady and elliptical travelogue, Way Out Weather demonstrates a radical widescreen evolution for Steve Gunn, featuring a larger band and lighting out for lusher, more expansive and impressionistic territories than Time Off (2013). This is the virtuosic guitarist and songwriter's career-defining statement to date, a self-assured masterpiece.

    Way Out West

    Mastered off the original 2-track tape recorded with a tube AKG-C12 microphone on a tube Ampex 350 machine. Features Ray Brown on bass and Shelly Manne on drums. Over his long and distinguished career, Sonny Rollins has made many dozens of albums. Among those recorded during the fifties, Prestige's Movin' Out and Colossus, Blue Note's A Night at the Village Vanguard, Riverside's The Sound of Sonny, and Way Out West on Contemporary qualify as all-time Rollins classics.


    The session for Way Out West, Rollins' first ever in California, was called for 3 a.m. to accommodate everyone's busy schedules. Sonny, who could never be accused of overstatement, announced after four hours of recording: I'm hot now.

    Way Out West is a piano-less trio - another va-va-vivid Roy DuNann production - with Rollins spinning quirky geometric patterns through odd standards like 'I'm an Old Cow Hand.' - Fred Kaplan, The Absolute Sound, December 2005 (included in Kaplan's Best-Sounding Jazz LPs)

    No Way Out

    Sundazed is totally stoked to announce the reissue of the first two albums by the Chocolate Watch Band, high on everyones list as one of the most exciting garage bands ever. Hailing from San Jose, California, the Watch Bandfeaturing the pouting, Mick Jagger-influenced lead vocals of Dave Aguilar, the thrilling guitars of Sean Tolby and Mark Loomis, the solid bass of Bill Flores and the thumping drums of Gary Andrijasevichmade all the right scenes in San Jose, including appearances with South Bay chart-toppers the Syndicate of Sound and Count Five.


    No Way Out kicks things off with an eye-opening nugget, Lets Talk About Girls. Its a song that perfectly blends a stomping Chuck Berry rhythm track with the happening boss sound, the psychedelic guitar. Come On, an early Stones single, is given the perfect Jagger paint job, while Are You Gonna Be There (At the Love-In) captures the new tribal hippie culture in a nutshell.

    The Invisible Way

    The Invisible Way is Low's tenth album in 20 years as a band. Low's Alan Sparhawk says of the album: "While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day. It's a great place-a sea of instruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It's cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on: big, simple, raw, and intimate. How is this different from any other Low record? Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favorite). Piano, lots of piano...and an acoustic guitar. Songs about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archeology, and love."

    Long Way From Home

    Third Man Records is proud to announce the forthcoming releases of Leon Redbone's Long Way From Home, the never-before-released earliest known recordings of the mysterious performer. Redbone's career has spanned over four decades and began with his earliest performances on the folk festival and club circuit. His numerous appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Saturday Night Live and other outlets catalyzed his rise to international recognition. Over the ensuing years he has appeared throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Japan and released thirteen albums of his unique music, a panoply of early music styles that he delivered with his singular laconic idiosyncratic style. A true champion of early American ragtime, blues and jazz, Leon Redbone has spent a lifetime preserving that musical tradition while exposing successive generations to a rich musical heritage of which they might not otherwise have become aware. Recorded in 1972 by Dave Benders for WBFO Radio at the University of Buffalo, Long Way From Home features some of the first Leon Redbone recordings. Long Way From Home was never released commercially and is finally available in a double-LP package for all to enjoy.

    In A Silent Way

    Float Into the Ether: Gorgeous 1969 Experimental Treasure Among the Most Atmospheric Jazz Albums Ever Recorded


    Delicate, Immersing, Dynamic: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Magnifies the Bold Textures, Soothing Ambience, and Transcendent Moods


    Davis First Fusion Album Features John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, and Tony Williams


    Sketches of Spain, Kind of Blue, Milestones, Round About Midnight, and Four & More Also Available from Mobile Fidelity


    Shhh. The command to be quiet is no just part of the title of one of the two sprawling compositions on this pioneering album. Its also an apt metaphor for the relaxed hypnotism and spaced-out atmosphere that define In a Silent Way, a record that pushes the boundaries of studio possibilities, artist-producer relationships, and rock-jazz chasms. Recognized as Miles Davis first full-on fusion effort and part of his electric era, the 1969 landmark claims a Whos Who lineup that sends the music into an ethereal stratosphere.


    Part of Mobile Fidelitys Miles Davis catalog restoration series, In a Silent Way now immerses the listener in linoleate landscapes starlit by the intuition, suspension, and paradoxes wrought by a once-in-a-lifetime collective. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, this unsurpassed 180g LP edition lifts the veil on the cutting-edge assembly process that created the pair of lengthy suites. Helmed by three electric instruments, the beveled compositions melt away all preconceived notions of jazz, rock, and ambience, following a loose theory Davis dubbed New Directions.


    Few albums are so delicately textured. And on Mobile Fidelitys meticulous analog reissue, such sulcate elements pour over ink-black backgrounds on a canyon-wide soundstage. In particular, Tony Williams inventive percussive touch he causes the cymbals to shimmer as a pieces of silver tend to do when exposed to sunlight is broadcast with lifelike three-dimensional qualities, the panoramic view extending to Davis nocturnal trumpet, Wayne Shorter's ribbon-unfurling saxophone, Dave Hollands extrapolative bass, and the mosaic of keys.


    If the records only accomplishment is its introduction of guitarist John McLaughlin to the world, it alone would be enough. Yet In a Silent Way continues to bedazzle, puzzle, and inspire for myriad reasons not the least of which is the seemingly telepathic communicative methods employed by the groups members. The lineup is great on paper, but, if its even possible, the octet sounds even better in practice, with the instruments and tonalities conjoining in avant-garde communion like hyper-sensitive tentacles exploring the stippled landscapes of an undiscovered planet.


    Diverting from expectation, tubular grooves twist, turn, and spin, sometimes piling atop of each other, always shying away from structure and melody. Ellipsoidal solos provide hesitant guidance, ranging from Chick Corea's Fender Rhodes phrases to Davis decorative spirals. And as color is the primary unit of currency on Davis Sketches of Spain, laidback episodes, geometric spaces, and quiet sensuality reign here, with the sets maverick reputation attained via musings on solitude rather than explosions of noise.


    Controversial for the period, the heavily edited production of In a Silent Way blew open the once-locked doors on what producers could attempt and how artists could assist them. Knitted together as one would construct a cross-hatched quilt, songs contain grafts of repeat passages that provide unifying structure and experimental continuity. What a statement.

    Down the Way


    2-LP Gatefold Package Featuring 3 Additional Tracks


    " a sweet and savory blend to warm the soul." - MOJO


    "Brother Angus' acoustic guitar wraps sister Julia's whispery trill with an unhurried,
    disarmingly simple melody that will propel you off the couch and into the sun."
    - Marie Claire "Need To Download"


    "If A Book Like This compounded the prospects of their future, consider Down The Way
    the fulfilling realization of all expectations." - Filter


    " the musical equivalent of a walk on the beach at twilight." - Nylon


    "The pair melt in to one another to create a spectral and lush backdrop" - Clash Magazine (UK)


    "Very possibly the worlds' favourite Australian indie-folk brother and sister duo"
    - Evening Standard (London UK)


    Australian brother/sister duo, Angus & Julia Stone's sophomore album Down The Way was released to critical
    acclaim, charted at #1 in Australia, and features the stand-out track "Big Jet Plane."


    Originally available on vinyl only in limited quantities in North America, the 2-LP Gatefold package featuring 3
    additional tracks is being reissued timed with the duo's 2014 album release and October tour.


    Down The Way highlights the endless talents of this brother and sister as musicians, songwriters and producers.
    The self-produced album was recorded between England, New York and Australia--from an old sawmill on the
    riverbanks of Fowey, Cornwall to a studio in Brooklyn, to a water tank in Coolangatta to the streets of London and
    back to Queens. Down The Way is comprised of tracks that sail across the different realms of musical themes,
    from folksy charm to epic orchestral grandeur, all the while emphasizing the pair's beautifully subtle harmonies

    New Way Home

    New Way Home, MiWi's debut album on Team Love, is the result of life taking an unexpected turn. With the help of Monica Frisell, the songs began to take shape in early 2013. As things developed, friends such as Joanna Warren, Curtis Fowlkes, Rob Jost, Mara Kaye, Natalie John, Timothy Allen, Bill Frisell, and Conor Oberst, all enthused at the sound, eagerly jumped in to lend a hand. New Way Homeis a short, immediate, and catchy album, but its real magic lies in its ability to invoke a wide range of sonic diversity while not losing sight of its singular vision. A track like "Ashes To The Wind" invokes legendary bluesman Howlin' Wolf, while "Here I Am" positions itself neatly between singer-songwriters like Ron Sexsmith and Stuart Murdoch. The album's songs range from playfully vengeful ("Everybody's Fuckin' With Me") to sorrowfully serious ("New Moon").


    MiWi's voice is frank, his phrasing crisp, his lyrics easy to grasp yet full of twists. The songs document a season in a life, offering empathy to the listener while asking for the same in return.

    I'll Find A Way


    Features Special Guests: Casey Dienel of White Hinterland, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, Patty Grifn, Sam Amidon, And Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond


    Produced by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver, Kathleen Edwards), I'll Find a Way is a unique collaboration between one of popular music's longest-running acts and one of its fastest-rising stars. Known primarily for his work in the indie and folk realms, the Bon Iver frontman proved a perfect fit to work with the Blind Boys, exhibiting a deep knowledge and
    appreciation of gospel music. Vernon, and old friend and band mate Phil Cook (Megafaun, The Shouting Matches) corralled a lively backing band for the album and hand-picked a range of songs for the Blind Boys to sing. I'll Find a Way features some of the Blind Boys' most fervent vocals as well as contributions by a new generation of Blind Boys
    fans - Sam Amidon, Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond, Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, Casey Dienel of White Hinterland, Patty Grifn and Justin Vernon himself. The result is a rousing collection of gospel songs, new and old, that address life's most desperate hours but also savor the triumphs and reassurances of faith.


    I'll Find a Way represents a strong new chapter for the Blind Boys of Alabama, whose career stretches back more than seventy years. Formed in the late 1930s at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in Talladega, the group has harmonized throughout
    the turbulent twentieth century and well into the twenty-rst: from Jim Crow through Civil Rights and into the Obama era. They have, however, enjoyed some of their biggest and most rousing successes in the last ten years, during which they've won ve Grammys, four Gospel Music Awards and multiple invitations to sing at the White House.


    For I'll Find a Way, their ninth studio album of the twenty-rst century, the Blind Boys of Alabama - which includes Jimmy Carter, Eric "Ricky" McKinnie, Joey Williams, Tracy Pierce, Ben Moore and newest addition Paul Beasley - decamped to the wintry wild of rural Wisconsin to record at Vernon's April Base studio. Known primarily for his work in the indie and folk realms, the Bon Iver frontman proved a perfect t to work with the Blind Boys, exhibiting a deep knowledge and appreciation of gospel
    music.


    "It's not just singing," explains the 82-year-old Carter. "We're bringing the message to the people, and that message is the good news of God. We sing from the heart, and what comes from the heart reaches the heart. If you have any feeling in you,
    you will feel the Blind Boys."
