    Seeking Major Tom

    With a career that spans over 5 decades, Canadian-born actor William Shatner has become an instantly recognizable star of stage and screen whose vocal delivery, primarily in his performance as the square-jawed Capt. James T. Kirk, is as iconic as it is legendary.


    The versatile Shatner has also brought his unique interpretive talents to the music world as well, first in 1968 with the cult favorite The Transformed Man and later in 2004 with Has Been. Now Shatner has returned to familiar territory, space in this wildly inventive concept album featuring brand new recordings of Shatners much celebrated speak-sing delivery on a host of classic rock favorites and other space-themed songs.


    With guest appearances by an all-star cast of rock legends, Seeking Major Tom is sure to be one of the most talked about releases of 2011!

    Wait Don't Wait

    Wait Don't Wait is the band's second full-length album - and their first release via Tender Loving Empire. Joy as an act of revolutionary defiance in the face of oppression is the name of their game, and it sounds too damn good to ignore. On the New Wave by way of Progressive Jazz banger, "Sleepy Eyes", an imposing kick and warping synth take o like a supersonic jet. In an 'I mean Serious Business' manner, Westman declares, "When the time is right I will take you home oh oh oh / When the feeling's right I will let you know," and it is clear that this is her call to make. The bounce continues, and - out of nowhere - the dancefloor falls into space and soothing jazz chords float over the classic puttering of a Roland CompuRhythm CR-78.


    Just as suddenly, the four-on-the-floor beat returns, and soon saxophone, flute, guitar, and synth stabs pop in and out. Not since Beasties Boys' Paul's Boutique have such abrupt changes within one song felt so damn right. "Let Me Go", another knockout, begins with a grimy bassline and a classic hip hop clap with Westman and Vait trading verses, asking those universal questions of love and love lost. On a dime, the song transforms to near power ballad - soaring upward and lifting the listener out of the muck of the day with the refrain "Home is where I'd be if my heart could just decide", and in the same way all pop masterpieces do, it seems to end too soon - a serious 'back button' burner. With the release of Wait Don't Wait, SISTERS are not only presenting a pop record full of bangers that demands repeat listens, they are also methodically working toward creating a world that is safe for everyone. SISTERS deliver unrestrained joy, and it is desperately needed right now. The world has been waiting, but it needs wait no more.

    London Scene

    Fela's London Scene, released in 1972, is another top-notch affair, made with a smaller band but one that punches above its weight. There is no tenor guitarist and no call-and-response choir, though sing-along vocals are a feature of "Egbe Mi O" ("please carry me"). Throughout, Fela's electric piano is gym-ripped and razor sharp, and Igo Chico turns in three stirring tenor solos. "Buy Africa," written in 1970, was one of Fela's first politically-informed songs. The lyric was written in support of a government campaign to encourage local industry. At this point, Fela remained open to accommodation with the state, on occasions when he deemed it to be in the Nigerian and pan-African interest. He even invited government sponsorship for "Buy Africa," but was rudely rebuffed by the politician he approached with the idea. The incident proved to be an important moment in shaping Fela's future relationship with the authorities. From 1972, he would no longer release accommodationist songs. From there on in, he would identify the status quo as the fundamental problem-a problem that could not be solved by government campaigns, but only by the complete overhaul, if not overthrow, of the government itself. "J'Ehin J'Ehin" ("eat teeth eat teeth") is along similar lyric lines as "Shakara." This time Fela is lampooning people who are so greedy that they eat their own teeth. (A more amiable Yoruba expression describes people who are so hungry that once they have finished their food they eat the plate). In "Who're You," Fela channels James Brown's vocal style over an angular funk groove. "Fight To Finish" draws on Yoruba folklore to offer advice: once you have started something, be prepared to finish it.

    From Scene To Shining Scene

    Canada's proudest pop-punk progenies CHIXDIGGIT! have had an enduring career pumping out some of the catchiest, fast paced, fun laden melodies ever written. With an unwavering dedication to their proven formula of cheeky lyrics and to-the-point music, CHIX have created a vast catalog of pop-punk classics over their more than 20 years as a band. While it's true that a classic never dies, it never hurts to take it off the shelf and polish it up every once in a while. This is exactly what the band decided to do with their two definitive releases Born On the First of July and From Scene To Shining Scene. Both albums were originally released on Honest Don's (a former subsidiary of Fat Wreck Chords) to great acclaim, but never quite received all the attention that they deserved.


    Vinyl fans will be elated to hear that both (previously out of print) LPs will be individually reissued (remastered and with bonus tracks). This time around these albums will be official Fat Wreck Chords releases too, affording them the broader visibility they warrant.

    The Tenor Scene

    Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissues from Analogue Productions - 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All cut at 33 1/3.


    All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom


    Deep groove label LP pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock


    During the two-year existence of their Tough Tenors quintet, Eddie Lockjaw Davis (a Prestige artist) and Johnny Griffin (under contract to Riverside/Jazzland) satisfied their contractual obligations by recording five albums for each company. This was the pair's first for Prestige, and the first of a four-album series taped over the course of an extremely productive evening at the legendary Minton's Playhouse in Harlem. The album, also known as The Breakfast Show in an earlier reissue, gives the rhythm section several opportunities to shine, with Ben Riley's drums dominant on Woody'n You, Bingo Domingo featuring Larry Gale's bass, and Junior Mance's piano solo almost stealing the show on Light and Lovely. It is the leaders, though, who consistently deliver with their complimentary brand of intensity, which is heard at the boil throughout and reaches a particular peak when they exchange ideas on Straight, No Chaser.

    Wait To Pleasure

    Wait To Pleasure may not provide you with any new answers about No Joy, but what it does offer is a batch of incredible new songs, the product of the Montreal noise-pop band's first foray in a fully-furnished studio environment.


    Here the band has flourished, delivering their finest set to date, rooted heavily in shoegaze ripcurls and devastating melody, finishing sentences whispered long ago with depth, variance and force. Jasamine White-Gluz, Laura Lloyd and Garland Hastings knock down the fence between nostalgia and modernity, chaos and control, in a perfectly realized work.


    The group recorded its debut album, 2010's Ghost Blonde, in their practice space, using USB microphones, consumer audio equipment, and a laptop. "We had to work under a certain set of circumstances, but we did it entirely on our own," says Laura. "If you listen closely enough to that record, you can hear the radio playing through our amps, and phantom echoes of the Metallica cover band and the No Doubt cover band practicing down the hall from our room."


    Wait To Pleasure found No Joy set loose in Mexican Summer's studio, Gary's Electric, for two weeks in 2012, with producer Jorge Alberecht (Violens, Lansing-Dreiden) at the helm. "We've never really made a record in an actual recording studio," says Laura. "It couldn't have worked out better. Since Gary's is booked by the label staff, we didn't feel any pressure to get the album finished by a set date. We had the time to bring our ideas to the studio and work them out there, along with the songs we'd finished on our own. We got to work on our own schedule, whenever we were ready." Adding piano, keyboards and drum programming to the record helped to color in their sound the way that they wanted. "Our earlier records are purely guitar-based, rock band lineups," Laura adds, "and with Wait To Pleasure we seized the opportunity to change things up a bit."

    Waiting

    Colored Vinyl With 7 Single!


    On December 7, 1999, the then-fledgling Eyeball Records released the debut album by New Jersey band called Thursday. Waiting, in itself, made modest waves during its initial release, but as the band prepared its follow-up-2001's breakthrough Full Collapse-Thursday's debut quickly became more of a herald than an introduction: This is the sound of a band in the middle of a discovery process that would eventually take them to legendary status around the world. Having officially gone out of print when Eyeball ceased operations, Waiting has been unavailable in physical, digital, and streaming formats since 2012. But this year, on the fifteenth anniversary of its release, Collect Records is finally giving this classic album the special deluxe edition reissue package it deserves. Waiting: The 15-Year Anniversary Edition features the original album remastered and repackaged with a die-cut sleeve, original liner notes, and a bonus 7 EP featuring previously unreleased demos from this period-including one never-before-released song.

    If You Wait


    "Longing, loving, leaving: Those are the boundaries of the impeccable
    pop universe that London Grammar has built for itself."
    - The New York Times


    "A stylish debut that demonstrates both their immense
    talent and impressive instincts."
    - Pitchfork


    THE NEXT BIG THING. Such a label serves at once as a curse and a blessing, for messianic crowns come studded with thorns, and chalices emblazoned with this inscription are often tainted with poison. Custodians of the title can implode under the weight of expectation, or fail to bottle further the magic of that first hit single.


    Not so for English art-rock trio London Grammar. Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman have been careful to avoid the dangers of over-exposure in the nine months since first single "Hey Now" seared itself into the collective consciousness of the blogosphere, instead releasing work after work of gradually escalating beauty from the safety of the shadows.


    That was until Disclosure dropped their album Settle, at which point London Grammar vocalist Hannah Reid came to wider attention on sweeping album closer "Help Me Lose My Mind," where her spine-tingling soulful singing combined with the wash of swooning synths and downbeat 80's percussion. It will come as no surprise to fans of this track to learn that Reid's magnificent vocals are integral to London Grammar's sound, serving as the perfect accompaniment to the band's discreet production and minimalist instrumentation.


    The same words will be used ceaselessly to describe Reid's vocals in coming weeks - "haunting", "brooding", "ethereal". Yet none of these terms adequately conveys the way her voice melts and evolves to suit the temperament and melody of each song on If You Wait, flowing like molten gold on "Interlude", or acquiring the varied textures of a vast swathe of satin and silk on "Nightcall". Her vocal is always underscored by an enduring brittle beauty and an underlying otherworldliness, as if she honed her craft singing amidst the forests of Lothlórien, or some far-flung corner of Westeros.


    Though her voice may be otherworldly, the thematic concerns of the album are very much rooted in this world - youth's timeless preoccupation with finding not only love but the nature of ourselves. These soundscapes and the lyrics that populate them are characterised by broken hearts, fractured dreams and people falling in and out of love. Perhaps the most telling lyric of all is on "Wasting My Young Years", with the heart-breaking concession of "I've heard it takes some time to get it right".


    The album's first single and opening track "Hey Now" has lost none of its grandeur and remains as devastatingly beautiful as it did when released at the tail-end of 2012. It's the main track on If You Wait that justifies the comparisons with The XX - especially in terms of how the band forges the space and atmosphere from reverb-tinged percussion and Rothman's discreet, almost-spectral guitars. "Wasting My Young Years" further showcases how perfectly the band balance the interplay between Reid's vocal and the twinkling keys and subtle instrumentation that floats around it, allowing it to drive the song and dictate proceedings but never once to feel overbearing.


    Latest single "Strong" mirrors the intricately weaved threadwork of sounds and elaborately crafted sense of space showcased on the opening track, but utilises a more hypnotic vocal from Reid that manages to sound simultaneously heart-rending and inspiring. Elsewhere "Interlude" is as refined a paean to love and devotion as you will hear all year, matching dual melancholic piano lines and subtly building percussion to Reid's sublime wistful singing.


    There is not a single weak track, but amongst the many highlights is a spellbinding cover of French house artist Kavinsky's "Nightcall". There's a particularly gorgeous moment around the two-minute-thirty-second mark when the instrumentation is peeled away and, for a few seconds, you think the song will end - before Reid's dazzling vocal is re-introduced amidst a haze of swirling keys. It's nothing short of transcendent. Also, the flawless sequencing leads to an album that begs you to drink in its beauty by listening to it from beginning to end.


    This is an enthralling, stunning, deeply emotive album that perfectly marries understated electronica to sublime vocals and melodies. In a year dominated by titanic LPs, London Grammar have not only made the most perfectly formed debut album of the year - they've made one of the best LPs, period. [A-]

    Wait 'Til Night

    Cooly G returns with Wait 'Til Night , an album of sensitive, lo-fi bedroom music, it s lyrics sketching dreamy scenarios of seduction, lust and sex. The moody South London house of her debut album 'Playin Me' and her DJ sets has given way to a near-horizontal, sometimes melancholy and highly original take on R n B. The tracks swing effortlessly with no-fuss musical arrangements that are filtered through reggae sound system culture and US R n B in equal amounts, with a slight hint of dark synthpop wound throughout. The pace has come down from the deep, tribal house she's known for so far, with the only constants that run through the album her intimate vocals and smokey synths cross-hatched with her characteristic broken rhythmic sense. Opening with title track, Cooly coos about a date, over an infectious synth lead that wouldn't sound out of place on a Depeche Mode song. 'Like A Woman Should' is twilight music, synths rolling out like clouds over pulsing drums, while the vocals whisper invitations. 'Your Sex' is a fantasy with synths and surprisingly stabbing, hooky and distorted rhythm guitar. 'I Like' feels like the opening of an especially dreamy jungle track stretched into a full pop song. 'Dancing' rolls out drums and a mini guitar figure into a gently dizzy waltz, while 'Quick Question' plays out the scenario after the dance. 'Want's' barely-there song structure of drum and occasional bass with a wiry synth lead, is accompaniment to a near-whispered vocal. The pace steps up with the smouldering 'So Deep', with a deep synth bassline and a muscular hip hop beat. '1st Time' is all depth charge bleeps, guitars and piano. 'Freak You' is spacious and guitar driven, with Cooly beaming in directives through a distant voice transmission. The album's final honest, angry and forlorn track, 'The 3 Of Us', comes down hard on an absent parent, a full stop on the romance that the album narrates. It also reveals Cooly G as a skilled rap artist, something she s kept hidden until now, with double-time flows casting off a missing babyfather. Wait Til Night finds Cooly G casting her net wider than her debut album, with songs that are more confident, accessible and stylistically consistent. The album comes laced with Cooly's unique honesty and charm and is sure to win her new fans with her catchy melodies, slow-jammed stories of blighted urban romance, and engaging lack of pretension.

    The Cosmic Scene (Pure Pleasure)

    Still riding the success of his triumphant concert at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival, Duke Ellington in 1958 decided to reduce his touring orchestra to a nonet dubbed the Spacemen, and recorded this lone project with them for the Columbia label. Perhaps inspired by the first orbiting satellites, Ellington is not taking cues from George Russell or Sun Ra, whose extraterrestrial inspirations led them to even more progressive paths. This large ensemble is playing mostly standards, but the arrangements and solos carve an integrated yet elasticized concept that allows for a more expanded role for the ensemble's trombonists Quentin 'Butter' Jackson, John Sanders, and Britt Woodman, and select soloists. One in the solo spotlight is Clark Terry on flugelhorn exclusively, putting his fabled trumpet aside. The classic material presented includes clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton's features Avalon and Early Autumn, the slinky stripper pole blues version of St. Louis Blues with Ellington's piano taking the lead, and a version of Body & Soul, with tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves completely extrapolating and re-harmonizing the tune. There's a modified Perdido, an animated and perky Midnight Sun that deviates from any other slow and lugubrious version of the ballad, and Jones a real good swinger. There are two originals; the blues bass of Jimmy Woode and the 'bones with plentiful piano from Duke infusing Bass-Ment, and one of the more delightful of all of Ellington's book, the poppin' and boppin' Spacemen, a bright happy horn chart led by Terry that is one of the more distinctive Ellington numbers of this time period. It comes highly recommended.



    Musicians:



    • Paul Gonsalves (tenor saxophone)

    • Clark Terry (fluegel horn)

    • Britt Woodman, John Sanders, Quentin Jackson (trombone)

    • Jimmy Hamilton (clarinet)

    • Duke Ellington (piano)

    • Jimmy Wood (bass)

    • Sam Woodyard (drums)



    Recording: April 1958 at Columbia 30th Street Studio, New York




    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.

    An Open Letter To The Scene

    Reissued For The First Time Since 2010


    Pressed On Colored Vinyl


    Includes Bonus 2-Song 7" Vinyl


    He may not be a mainstream mainstay, but mention the name Walter Schreifels to
    anyone even tangentially involved in the punk or hardcore scene and chances are you'll be met
    with borderline reverence. From his tenure in legendary hardcore bands like Gorilla Biscuits and
    Youth Of Today to his work in the pioneering post-hardcore act Quicksand and cult favorites like
    Rival Schools, Schreifels has proved himself to be one of the most talented and diverse songwriters
    of his generation. Over two decades after GB released their landmark album Start Today,
    Schreifels transcended his hardcore roots and showed another side of his constantly shifting skin
    with his solo debut An Open Letter To The Scene.


    From stripped-down acoustic meditations like the album's title track to Schreifels' psychedelic-tinged
    cover of Agnostic Front's "Society's Sucker" and an intricately arranged version
    of his CIV Classic "Don't Gotta Prove It," An Open Letter To The Scene is arguably the first
    project Schreifels has ever recorded that manages to incorporate all of his diverse influences and
    recontextualize them into a cohesive whole.

    Ramble On

    The Ramblin' Ambassadors' third album for Mint Records proves again that the Canadian West is the true home of instrumental rock 'n' roll. Serving up another platter of big beat, no bullshit guitar instrumentals, the boys from Calgary kick up way more turf than surf.


    Ever spend too much time at the Brazilian Barbecue? One hot dog too many? Then check out "Meat Sweats"; a greasy homage to that pulled pork you just washed down with a shot of cheap booze. "Back Seat Action" recalls borrowing Mom's land yacht for the big date, and every electric note of "Dallas B. Goode" counts the odometer clicks on your '56 Buick, or maybe even your '73 Pacer. Parties ("Clambake!"), cars ("Super Bee") and even the environmental activism of the forest-scorching "Pine Beetle Express" define what occupies the rock 'n' roll minds of The Ramblin' Ambassadors.


    Ramble On was recorded entirely in the band's secret underground bunker, under the tutelage of musical whiz-kid Russell Broom. The album strips the Ambassadors' sound even further back, with pretty much a single track for each instrument. Ramble On has the familiar fiery twin guitar attack of Brent J. Cooper and Gentleman Doug Waite, and careful listeners will notice that Cooper occupies one side of the stereo spectrum and Waite the other.


    Scott Nickless rides the yellow line, keeping his big bass right up the middle, and Tyler Pickering's able drumming puts the tyger in the tank. Ramble On maintains the reputations of the Ambassadors' two previous Mint releases, slamming home the fact that they remain, according to Exclaim Magazine, "one of the best instrumental acts around today."

    Mad Scenes

    A few months after the release of the new Callas Live Remastered Edition, Warner Classics continue to release her legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using the state of the art remastering done in 2014. Mad Scenes (1958)Maria Callas did not make complete studio recordings of Donizetti's Anna Bolena and Bellini's Il pirata (these two operas are both available in the new Callas Live Edition), though, as the queen of La Scala, she enjoyed triumphs in both roles in 1957-1958. The vocally and dramatically demanding final scenes of both operas feature in this recital with OphÉlie's mad scene from Ambroise Thomas's Hamlet, another coloratura extravaganza. When this recital first appeared in 1959, Gramophone wrote: 'This is a most remarkable record, not only for its material but for its astonishing vividness and dramatic poetry It has been a thing of much wonder for me.'

    Love Scenes

    Like a mink draped over mahogany, Diana Krall's luxuriously supple alto adorns the vintage songs of romance and longing found on Love Scenes with a palpable aura of glamour and late-night cool. Her ostensibly effortless command of phrasing and intonation, whether the mood is seduction or a sweet sassiness, further fortifies the opinion that the Canadian vocalist-pianist possesses one of the great female jazz voices to surface in the late 1990s.


    Augmented by spare but skillful instrumentation from bassist Christian McBride and guitarist Russell Malone, Krall sustains a largely quiet (though hardly sleepy) ambience throughout the album's 12 selections, from Irving Berlin's How Deep Is the Ocean (How High Is the Sky), which she also uses as a showcase for her touch at the keyboard, to Gershwin's They Can't Take That Away from Me. Her swing is artfully subdued (All or Nothing at All), and her wry, expressive approach to Peel Me a Grape is pure charm. Yet Krall shines most luminously on languid gems such as I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You and Garden in the Rain. Anyone in search of an album ideal for watching city lights at 2 a.m. should keep Love Scenes in mind. --Terry Wood

    The Piano Scene Of Ahamd Jamal (Speaker Corner)

    The early recordings made by Ahmad Jamal for the Epic label have disappeared into the annals of jazz history. His trio with bass and drums, however, was certainly a whole lot more famous in clubs, at festivals and in TV shows in the Fifties. The present LP contains twelve numbers performed by a trio composed of a guitar and bass or drums - Ray Crawford, Eddie Calhoun, Walter Perkins only being known to a handful of jazz fans - and only a few compositions of his own, most titles are favourites from musicals of the day. Ahmad Jamal reveals the influence of Art Tatum and Nat King Cole in his performance, whereby his masterly art and independent style is already recognizable. The trios are quite unique in themselves, although the hierarchy is unchangeable: Ahmad Jamal is and remains the boss; he performs the majority of the solos.



    A special highlight is surely the first version of Billy Boy. And not only Miles Davis praised the pianist for his technical prowess and wealth of ideas. Aki And Ukthay (Brother and Sister) also offers the possibility to admire Jamal's pianistic proficiency. What a good idea to bring out these early recordings once more for jazz lovers! Especially because the Epic label is truly underestimated in the record market. The recording quality is absolutely impeccable - a true listener's gem.



    Musicians:



    • Ahmad Jamal (piano)

    • Ray Crawford (guitar)

    • Eddie Calhoun (bass)

    • Walter Perkins (drums)




    Recording: 1951 and 1955

    On The Border


    Certified Multi-Platinum (2 times) by the RIAA. (3/01)


    On their third album, the Eagles finally produced a No. 1 hit with The Best of My Love, but most of On the Border is marked by tough rockers, not sweet ballads. Already Gone is a brusque kiss-off and Midnight Flyer a bluegrass kicker, while James Dean recalls the '50s rebel icon, and the title track reflects on paranoia and creeping Big Brotherism. The Eagles also cover a Tom Waits tune, Ol' 55, and pay tribute to alt-country godfather Gram Parsons on My Man. The album title is prophetic in the sense that the band that made this record (bolstered by the addition of guitarist Don Felder) was on the verge of greatness, but not quite there yet. --Daniel Durchholz
