Whatcha See Is Whatcha GetThe Dramatics had been around in one form or another for nine years before the members got to release their first LP, and the result was a pair of breakthrough hits over the spring and summer of 1971, beginning with the title track, a Top Ten single that boasted not only extraordinary singing from bass to falsetto, but a soaring, punchy horn arrangement and some of the best fuzztone guitar heard on a hit record since the Rolling Stones' Satisfaction. The Afro-Cuban-flavored Get up and Get Down followed it into the R&B Top 20, and the Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get album followed them both. It was the third hit off of the album, In the Rain, a delicate ballad that was issued separately as a single in early 1972, topping the R&B charts and reaching number five on the pop charts, that solidified the group's reputation and elevated them to the front rank of '70s soul acts. The album showcased the group equally well doing up-tempo dance numbers (Mary Don't Cha Wanna) and ballads (Thank You for Your Love, Fall in Love, Lady Love), melding very attractive vocals to arrangements that instantly grabbed the listener, all of it pulled together by songwriter/producer Tony Hester. Even the lesser material, such as Gimme Some (Good Soul Music) -- on which Hester knew that one minute and 34 seconds was all that was needed to make its point -- were so attractive and rousing that they easily carried their portion of the album, whose short running time was its only flaw. All of the members, from Willie Ford's powerful bass to Ron Banks' airy falsetto, were presented to best advantage, but none more so than William Wee Gee Howard's lead vocals; ironically, this would be Howard's only completed album with the group, and their only album for two years to come because of the accompanying personnel problems. Still, it's a match for any soul album of its era.

DukeDuke was recorded after a period of inactivity from the band-Phil Collins needed time to try to save his first marriage, and Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford recorded solo albums in the meantime. Duke represents a change in the band's musical direction from their progressive rock roots to songs more pop-oriented and commercially accessible. However, a sizable portion of its material is still progressive.1. Behind The Lines

Face ValuePhil Collins Take A Look At Me Now Retrospective Reissue Campaign release
Remastered by Nick Davis
Initially released shortly after Collins' 30th birthday, Face Value was propelled to international multi-Platinum status with the help of the smash hit single In The Air Tonight. Other notable tracks on the album include the follow-up singles I Missed Again and If Leaving Me Is Easy, as well as Behind The Lines which was written with Collins' Genesis colleagues Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford.
The career of Phil Collins is one that, by any measure, stands among the most creative, prolific, and impressive in the history of modern music. It is a career that really has been many careers - musician, singer, composer, producer, actor - from art rock beginnings to pop stardom, from big band leader to film soundtracks and Broadway. It has been an exceptional musical life spanning four decades, some 100 million solo albums sold (250 million if you count his work with Genesis), an extraordinary string of hits, eight Grammy Awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, numerous industry accolades, and, above all, an inestimable influence on countless fellow artists and passionate fans around the globe.1.

FlashFeaturing Peter Banks and Tony Kaye of YES
Mastered from the Original Capitol Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA with Ron McMaster
When former members of YES Peter Banks (guitars) and Tony Kaye (keyboards) teamed up and re-emerged on the recording scene with a new prog-rock quintet called Flash, their 1972 self-titled debut LP was immediately greeted with great sales and solid reviews, thanks in part to their memorable hit single Small Beginnings.
In addition to the legendary Peter Banks and Tony Kaye, Flash consisted of more prog-rock royalty like Colin Carter (vocals), Ray Bennett (bass and vocals) and Mike Hough (drums). In record time, the band developed into a highly important concert and recording act, as their new album Flash brought them much acclaim.
Every track on this stellar first project is a standout. Aside from the aforementioned smash Small Beginnings, rock radio standards of the time like Dreams of Heaven and Children of the Universe continue to enthrall fans of these progressive rock champions. Even the mood pieces like Ray Bennetts masterful Morning Haze and the stellar The Time It Takes show some of the more English folk and bluesier side of this brilliant masterpiece.
The Flash album, also known for having one of the most interesting album covers ever released, sold quite well throughout its substantial radio and retail run back in 1972-73. Banks guitar work is second to none throughout this stunning release, as keyboard virtuoso Tony Kaye lends his trademark keyboard passages to complement each song found on the entire album.
For the first time ever on audiophile vinyl, Friday Music presents the prog-rock masterpiece debut by Flash. Mastered impeccably from the original Capitol/Sovereign Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA with Ron McMaster, the Flash album is a much welcomed release for all the fans of prog and classic rock.
In addition to the great music within, this limited edition high grade vinyl release also comes in a super rare gatefold cover, for the first time in over three decades! To enhance your listening pleasure, Friday Music has also packaged the album in a poly lined protective sleeve and a poly bag for the album cover too.1. Small Beginnings (from the film Record Review)

4 Page Booklet
Includes Alternate Versions Of Everydays, Dear Father & Something's Coming
Yes (1969) is considered among the first progressive Rock albums. The original line-up of vocalist Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford remained intact for the album's recording.
In an era when psychedelic meanderings were the order of the day, Yes delivered a surprisingly focused and exciting record that covered lots of bases in presenting their sound. The album opens boldly, with the fervor of a metal band of the era playing full tilt on Beyond and Before, but it is with the second number, a cover of the Byrds' I See You, that they show some of their real range. The song is highlighted by an extraordinary jazz workout from lead guitarist Peter Banks and drummer Bill Bruford that runs circles around the original by Roger McGuinn and company.
We've included a bonus LP to the original package, with early versions of other songs, previously not included on the album. With remastered audio and augmented by a 4-page booklet, this is an essential Prog collector's item!LP1
