    Things Haven't Gone Well

    Music Blues is Stephen Tanner of Harvey Milk. Things Haven't Gone Well is Tanner's debut as a solo artist and the first album under the name Music Blues. The album was completely written and recorded by Tanner in both Georgia at Harvey Milk's vocalist and guitarist Creston Spiers' house and in his Brooklyn apartment. Tanner continues on with the musical touchstones of Harvey Milk (Melvins, Gore, Earth, ZZ Top, Kiss and Judas Priest) while forging ahead into a strange, and at times harrowing, unknown.

    Hoodoo Man Blues

    One of the all-time great urban blues records and the best-seller in the famed Delmark catalog. Hoodoo Man Blues is so full of bravado and snap it'll make you feel tough just listening to it. Not all of the Delmark titles were recorded very well, but this one certainly was. And at 45 RPM, this now stands as the undisputed definitive version. Hoodoo Man Blues, which features Buddy Guy on guitar, is not only Junior Wells' first LP appearance, it's damn near the first LP by a Chicago blues band. Chess and a few other labels had reissued 45s by Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, etc., but virtually no one had tried to capture the Chicago blues sound free of the limitations of juke box/airplay promotion. Hoodoo Man Blues went a long way in the popularization of real Chicago blues and of Junior Wells.

    Around The Well

    Collecting songs ranging from out-of-print to never-before-released, Around the Well spans Iron and Wine's earliest sessions which yielded the 2002 debut The
    Creek Drank the Cradle through material recorded for 2007's The Shepherd's Dog. The triple LP Around the Well collection is broken up into two sections. The first half is an assortment of hushed home recordings, unedited and raw, and the second highlights moments captured in the confines of proper studios with the help of other musicians, friends and engineers. The album's title comes from a line in the song The Trapeze Swinger, a fan favorite which was written for and included in the movie In Good Company. Three more songs written and recorded for the film finally make their appearance here as well: Belated Promise Ring, God Made the Automobile and Homeward, These Shoes. Around the Well also brings together hard-to-find covers such as The Flaming Lips' Waitin' for a Superman and New Order's Love Vigilantes, along with one of Iron and Wine's earliest originals, Sacred Vision.

    The Well's On Fire

    Transparent Red Vinyl


    The Wells on Fire, by Procol Harum, was originally released in 2003. On their first album of new material since 1991, The Well's on Fire is a return to form for Procol Harum. On this album the band is comfortable and unashamed to be working within the classic rock idiom, and their unique blend of progressive and R&B influences is still evident.

    The Sky As Well As Space

    We last heard from the boys in Memory Map with the release of their 2011 debut LP
    "Holiday Band". We couldn't be more excited to see them return with the release of
    their sophomore album "The Sky As Well As Space."


    With "The Sky as Well as Space", Memory Map continue to esh out their uniquely
    guitar-driven blend of indie pop. Few bands straddle song-craft and technical prowess
    as eortlessly as Memory Map. Using three guitars (one which cheats its way into
    acting as a bass), a three-piece drum kit, and vocals from all four members, Memory
    Map organically fuse cascading guitar lines, complex rhythms, and layered vocal
    harmonies into shamelessly accessible guitar pop.


    In the three years since their debut, Memory Map have gained depth both in
    composition and production. The album simultaneously showcases the band at their
    most catchy ("Magnetic Center"), menacing ("Dark Freshman"), and emotional
    ("Order In the Waves", "Antelope Earth").


    Why the three-year gap between albums you ask? Well, the delay is largely due to the
    popularity of a certain cat. Band member Mike Bridavsky owns and takes care of the
    most famous cat on the planet, Lil BUB. And because Memory Map have been so
    exible in working around Lil BUB's schedule, the band is ofcially BUB approved.

    Time Well

    Inspired by the harsh, rural landscapes of Indiana which they call home, CLOAKROOM drifts through a range of emotions and styles on their sophomore full-length Time Well. Fuzzy and depressive. Expressive and expansive. An amalgam of doomy stoner rock, psychedelic shoegaze, and moody, pop-influenced, sonic abrasion, Time Well is 10 songs and 60+ minutes of crunchy, guitar-driven atmosphere and downbeat rhythms layered atop deceptively sweet and tranquil melodies. At times crushingly heavy, others gorgeously contemplative, CLOAKROOM write music with purpose and intent; to dissolve from this world into an infinite blur.

    It Might As Well Be Spring

    Blue Note Reissue


    As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their handsBack home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent meI hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008


    Two weeks after Ike Quebec recorded his comeback album Heavy Soul for Blue Note, he was back at the Van Gelder Studio with the same band (Freddie Roach, Milt Hinton and Al Harewood), making a second album. The confidence paid off because It Might As Well Be Spring is every bit the classic the first album proved to be. Quebec's big-toned, vulnerable tenor playing is a thing to behold, as his heart-stopping version of the title tune, Lover Man and Willow Weep For Me attest. Easy Don't Hurt is one of his blues masterpieces.

    A Cure For Wellness Soundtrack

    Pressed On 180-Gram Cloudy Clear White Vinyl


    An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa's miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure. From Gore Verbinski, the visionary director of THE RING, comes the new psychological thriller, A CURE FOR WELLNESS. The music to the film was written by acclaimed composer Benjamin Wallfisch. The score for A Cure For Wellness was provided by composer Benjamin Wallfisch. It combines creepy lullabies and an orchestral majesty.

    What Is This Heart?

    Arriving two years after the haunting, glacial neo-soul of 2012's much-loved Total Loss, Tom Krell - under
    the moniker How To Dress Well - will release his third album "What Is This Heart?". Since the
    release of his debut Love Remains in 2010, Krell has crafted a reputation as one of America's most original,
    focused and beguiling young songwriters and "What Is This Heart?" nds How To Dress Well at the top of
    his game.


    Merging ever surprising production choices and aesthetic detail with a sensual but sincere R&B inuence
    and a deep, grounded emotionality, "What Is This Heart?" is the next step in Tom Krell's unique and
    searching artistic trajectory and asserts him as an artist of great courage, taste and craft. Its twelve songs
    were conceived and written during months of grueling international touring and realized with producer
    Rodaidh McDonald (Vampire Weekend, The xx, Savages, Adele) in Berlin, and the result is an ambitious
    21st century pop album that takes inuence from artists as varied as Prince, Lou Reed, Burial and Tracy
    Chapman.


    More condent, daring and open than any How to Dress Well release thus far, "What Is This Heart?" is at
    once Krell's most deeply personal work and also his most universal in resonance. It is a record that delves
    into the core of the psyche and touches on themes of isolation, loss and existential anguish, but in the end
    nds redemption in the innite possibilities of love. The songs tackle ideas of anxiety, fear, lack of control,
    nightmare, death, pain, pleasure, pride and shame, trust and commitment with an honesty and intimacy
    that is rare in the modern age.

    Going Back To Acoustic (Pure Pleasure)

    Originally issued in France on Isabel Records 900.510 under the title "Going Back" this LP presents one of the best duos in the history of the blues, guitarist Buddy Guy and harmonica player Junior Wells. Over the years they made many recordings together but this one is unique. Recorded whilst on a 1981 tour of Europe, Guy and Wells took a break from their backing musicians and amps to cut this spontaneous, all acoustic set. The results stand in stark contrast to the steamy Chicago blues the duo is best known for. Instead these recordings are relaxed and personal, with an intimate, back porch feel. Guy switches between six and twelve string guitars, and lays down rootsy acoustic rhythms for Wells's tasteful harmonica lines. The two share vocal duties on the performances as they pay homage to the rural, country blues roots these modern bluesmen share.



    Musicians:



    • Buddy Guy (guitar, vocal)

    • Junior Wells (harmonica, vocal)



    Recording: May 1981 at Sysmo Studio, Paris
    Production: Didier Tricard




    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Pleading The Blues (Pure Pleasure)

    The year was 1959. The occasion was a 'Battle of the Blues' at the Blue Flame Club in Chicago. A young harmonica player Junior Wells - who got his start as Little Walter Jacobs' replacement in Muddy Waters' band back in '52 - probably didn't imagine he would come in second. After all, he had already put down both Otis Rush and Magic Sam. Still to come, though, was this fleet-fingered, skinny young Louisiana cat - Buddy Guy, who came first. As the climax to his blistering solo, Guy tossed his guitar in the air, then caught it by the neck one handed. As it slid through his fingers, Buddy created this high levee moan. Crowd gone wild. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.



    That chance meeting set in motion more than a relationship. This early, and profound, respect translated into a partnership that somehow superceded Wells' early work with one of the most important people in the blues. Wells and Guy would produce some of the most unabashed and deeply cool West Side blues recordings.
    This album recorded for the French Isabel label, in 1979 is a companion piece to Guy's "Blues Giant" recording of the same year. There's the gentle blues shuffle of "It Hurts Me Too", made famous by Elmore James. There's the electric-blues muscle of the title tune. Finally, as a bonus track, there's the funky, clearly James Brown-influenced "I Smell Something". This is a fine recording - and certainly one of Junior's best little-known releases.



    Musicians:



    • Buddy Guy (guitar, vocals)

    • Phil Guy (guitar)

    • J. Williams (bass)

    • Ray Allison (drums)




    Recording: October 1979 at Condorcet Studio, Toulouse (France), by Francois Porterie

    Production: Didier Tricard
