    As Nasty As They Wanna Be

    As Nasty As They Wanna Be is the third album by Miami bass group 2 Live Crew. It was originally released on July 11, 1989, and became the group's largest seller, being certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. In 1990, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida ruled that the album was legally obscene; this ruling was later overturned by the Eleventh Circuit. It is the first album in history to be deemed legally obscene.

    Greatest Hits: Volume 2

    While 2 Live Crew are certainly associated with a moment in time, Luke and company's body of work is surprisingly deep. More a re-examination of their entire career than a bookend to its first part, GREATEST HITS Volume 2 contains both the Miami bass troupe's top 40 hits, the signature track Me So Horny, and the biography of its aftermath Banned in the U.S. A. This collection digs further into the 2 Live Crew catalog, which includes minor hits such as the Manfred Mann sampling Do Wah Diddy and the Clinton Scandal reworking of the act's biggest hit, Bill So Horny, a true timepiece.

    Sweet Home Alabama Live At Rockpalast

    Lynyrd Skynyrd is the ultimate Southern Rock band. Their signature three guitar attack coupled to superb
    songwriting and massive on stage charisma has rightfully earned them a reputation as one of the greatest live
    bands of all time. The original band infamously had their career cut short by a disastrous plane crash in 1977 which
    took the lives of three members plus two of their road crew and seriously injured several others.


    In 1987 the surviving members reformed the band with Johnny Van Zant taking the place of his brother Ronnie. This concert from 1996 captures the band on top form at Rockpalast's Loreley Festival on June 23, 1996.

    Live From Austin, TX (Kris Kristofferson)

    Kris Kristofferson has an unusual resumÉ. Brownsville, Texas-born, football star and Golden Gloves boxer in college, Rhodes scholar at Oxford, Army captain and chopper pilot, studio janitor, part-time bartender, leading man opposite Barbra Streisand and Jane Fonda. But on his passport, under occupation, it reads songwriter. And that more than anything sums up the essence of Kris Kristofferson. His songs have been recorded by at least 500 other artists, from Willie and Johnny (Cash) to Janis Joplin and Ray Charles, but only that gravelly baritone of his can truly render those songs the way they were meant to be heard, from somewhere deep down in the heart of the man himself. This performance from September 1981 captures Kris in his prime. As he put it at the time, the music's a little closer to the soul because I'm creating and controlling the whole show. Classics like Me and Bobby McGee, Loving Her Was Easier, Why Me?, and Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down take on a whole new meaning coming from the man who wrote and lived the words.


    This is the show that almost wasn't. As I was about to introduce Kris, the studio descended into total darkness. Apparently an errant rodent chewed through a major power line and the result was a black-out that lasted all night. The audience was led out by flashlight singing the ACL theme and Kris hung out on the roof with the crew. Fortunately, he came back the next night, and the resulting magic is here to enjoy.

    Greatest Hits

    Uncle Luke and company have made a career out of Miami bass/electro that's as raw, funky, and unforgivingly sexually explicit as humanly possible. This collection takes the highlights from four of their earliest and most controversial records and puts them together for a very convenient and near-accurate survey of their classic and most recognizable hits. Completists will note the glaring absence of such 2 Live staples as Do Wah Diddy, One and One, and Banned in the USA, but this shouldn't deter anyone other than the cult followers. This is still by far the most comprehensive collection of their work on the market and is the ideal place to start filling freaky needs.

    Deer Tick Vol. 2

    The best art often challenges widely held preconceptions about performance and beauty.We're moved when we find the sublime in the gross, entranced when crassness collides with grace. It makes poetic sense that one of this practice's finest current purveyors is named after a blood-sucking survivor.

    Deer Tick: undercutting expectations since 2004.

    I think a lot of my favorite artists have always done stuff like that, Deer Tick front man John McCauley says from his home in Nashville, reflecting on his band's love of unexpected mashups: tender lyrics layered over pissed off guitars; classical music flourishes delivered nearly naked and high. Deer Tick's perfected it all, mostly as an outlier, revered by a legion of fans, respected by peers, but not part of any one scene. With their highly anticipated new project(s), two new albums released simultaneously titled Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol.2, the crew from Rhode Island prove that their punk-roots rock has only gotten better with age.

    Ambitious and smart, the twin albums complement one another but also stand independently.Vol. 1 is classic Deer Tick: folk-rooted acoustic guitars and soft piano cushion out-front vocals. Vol. 2 commits wholly to the band's longtime garage-rock flirtations for a triumphant foray into punk.

    McCauley sees the two records as a natural progression. I think it's something that wa sbound to happen, just because I've always had one foot in each door, he says. Every album we've put out has had its manic moments in one way or another. I felt good enough about everything that I was writing to think that we could truly separate our two big interests: quiet and loud.

    It's been four years since Deer Tick's last release Negativity, and devotees have grown restless. It wasn't that the band-made up of McCauley, guitarist Ian O'Neil, drummer DennisRyan, and bassist Christopher Ryan-was withholding information. They just weren't sure they had anything more to share. It wasn't anything that we actually talked about, McCauleysays. We never said, 'Hey, we should take a break,' or 'Maybe this isn't working anymore.'We just took some time off. We'd just done our 10-year anniversary shows, and I had a kid like two weeks later. He pauses before adding with a hint of a laugh, We just kind of got comfortable away from each other.

    McCauley, O'Neil, and the two Ryans popped up solo and on others' projects. Personal lives also underwent massive changes, especially for McCauley, who married Vanessa Carlton and became a dad. The couple's little girl is now two years old. For the first time ever, Deer Tick-an all-consuming band known for constant touring and steady artistic output-took a backseat.

    When the band came back together for their beloved after-party shows at the Newport Folk Festival, the reunion reminded them what they missed about creating with one another.Playing that week with the guys made me really want to do it-it made everyone want to do it, McCauley says. So we started making some plans to go in the studio.

    The result, recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, is a bold double punch that reminds us not only why Deer Tick has been so missed, but why they've become important artists. The songwriting on both volumes is masterful. McCauley wrote most of the tunes alone, but O'Neil and Dennis Ryan also make killer contributions. Self-aware and never self important,McCauley excels at provocative lyrics that are sometimes confessional, sometimes accusatory. His compositions capture those internal contradictions that define us, like rock and-rollsongs of myself delighting in the multitudes and putting them on display.

    Vol. 1 opener Sea of Clouds is a dreamy mediation on letting go, featuring stripped down instrumentation that swells into a mini-symphony, all anchored by angelic harmonies and McCauley's familiar melodic snarl. It's not the only time McCauley mulls over what it takes to move on. Heart-tugging Only Love mixes sadness and hope for a snapshot of impending loss. I thought, 'Nobody writes a song about that kind of weird, ominous feeling you get inthe final 24 to 48 hours of a relationship,' McCauley says. I wanted to capture that mood in a song.

    Sauntering Card House is a flamenco-soaked threat with grotesque imagery, while lounge readyCocktail is a wry, piano-fueled stroll through fond boozy memories. I guess it's kindof a song about my strange relationship with alcohol-I'm still learning how to deal with it,McCauley says. I'm not a teetotaler. I've tried that. It's not for me. I'm not into the support group thing. I enjoy life with a drink. Trying to keep my life in balance can be hard, but it's something I'm capable of doing now.

    Tricky relationships with drugs and alcohol are addressed in different ways on both volumes.Hushed Vol. 1 closer Rejection pulses with vulnerability. I wrote it about trying to help somebody in some way, McCauley says. What was going through my mind but I didn't say in the lyrics is just reaching your hand out to somebody who's going through substance abuse problems. Vol. 2's Jumpstarting-a favorite track of McCauley's-offers the same kind of lifeline: he shouts startlingly sweet promises over crunchy guitars.

    Look How Clean I Am immediately follows. Written and sung by O'Neil, the song doesn't poke fun at sobriety but offers a droll take down of how some use it as a means or marketing vehicle to further celebrity. It's one of many genuinely funny moments on the project. JumpingS.M.F., (aka Shitty Music Festival) written and delivered by McCauley, takes hilarious shots at a summer institution. I thought I'd write that one for any band who's ever had a bad time at a music festival. It's one of my attempts at humor on the record, but then it just kind of comes off as anger, McCauley says with a laugh.

    McCauley wrote gorgeous instrumental Pulse thinking about the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. He lets his piano do the talking. It's a Whale is punk perfection, all screams and growling guitars. That's probably the most political I'll ever get in a song, McCauley says. I tried to put myself in the really dark head space of maybe a men's rights activist or something like that while trying to poke fun at it. His chants of Atta boy! Atta girl! are the ideal blend of smirk-inducing and scary.

    McCauley says he believes Sea of Clouds and It's a Whale probably best capture theextremities of both records. He's right, of course: it's Vol. 1's quiet vs. Vol. 2's loud-Deer Tick's dual personalities, finally channeled onto two distinct and equally brilliant records.These albums represent a new phase of my life that I haven't entirely figured out yet,McCauley says. I don't really know what's going to happen, but that's part of the excitement for me.

    Greatest Hits (Awaiting Repress)

    In the fall of 1976 The Marshall Tucker Band went to the UK and Europe for their only tour so far in those territories. The tour featured Bonnie Bramlett and Grinders Switch as support acts. The band was red hot in America and the time was right to spread the word to other countries. Founding member and lead singer Doug Gray remembers We didn't know what to expect but from the people at the hotel to the crew at the Hammersmith Odeon and finally the sold out crowd all made us feel so welcome we couldn't believe it. It was the same in Scotland with a different accent. When the label and band decided to release the new version of Greatest Hits on vinyl, they had the space to include these three live tracks, recorded in Glasgow, Scotland, and London, England, which have never before been released.

    Urbs In Horto

    Twin Peaks will be releasing a live double LP they're calling Urbs in Horto. The record features analog recordings from the sold out hometown shows at Metro and Thalia Hall in Chicago on Dec 17+18, 2016. The tracklist includes songs from across the band's three studio records as well as Rolling Stones cover "Dead Flowers" and "What Up Dawg?," a fan favorite by the band's friend James Swanberg. Urbs was recorded by the crew from Treehouse Records and mixed by the band, with album art by the band and concert photos by Daniel Topete and Cooper Fox. The band's own Cadien Lake James had this to say of the retrospective collection:


    We're proud to be releasing Urbs In Horto, a live LP recorded in Chicago. Our live show varies greatly from our recorded output, still retaining the energy we learned in our days playing basements. Our live show has been an important part of our existence, so it felt right to release a record from our homecoming shows at the end of 2016, our 5th year on the road. We're proud to have recorded it live to 2 reel-to-reel tape with the help of our brothers at Treehouse Records and to have it as a show of respect to the city we call home. Urbs In Horto is Chicago's motto, meaning City in a Garden. Record sounds more like a jungle, though.

    The Ascension (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: June 22, 2018*


    Pressed On 2x 180-Gram White Colored Vinyl


    A hard-hitting, multifaceted, female-fronted
    metal outfit from Los Angeles, California,
    Otep got their start in late 2000, when singer/band
    namesake Otep Shamaya brought her Marilyn Manson-meets-Kim Gordon style of
    singing to a crew of musicians known only as Rob, Moke, and eViL j. The foursome
    began gigging around Los Angeles and scored a deal with Capitol solely on the
    strength of their live show (they'd not yet recorded a demo), releasing the Jihad EP the
    following year. Rumors of cannibalism and dabbling in the mystical arts helped add to
    their mysterious image, and they found themselves receiving nods of approval from the
    likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson himself for their antics.


    In 2004 the group released its sophomore effort, House of Secrets, which introduced
    elements of funk, hip-hop, and ambient into the group's melting pot of metal. Working
    with producer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne), Otep followed up three years
    later with Ascension and supported it on spring 2007 dates with Static-X.


    In 2016 the band released their seventh studio album "Generation Doom" and continue
    to tour.

    Scream For Me Sarajevo (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: June 29, 2018*


    Sarajevo in 1994 was a city under siege. Mortars and grenades rained down on the city, killing indiscriminately every day. Amongst the madness, would it be possible to persuade a global rock star to come and play a show for local fans? Scream for Me Sarajevo is the soundtrack to the amazing and astonishing documentary film story of the most unlikely of rock concerts, performed by Bruce Dickinson and his band Skunkworks in 1994, in the midst of the Siege of Sarajevo. This is a film about extraordinary people defying the horrors of war, and the musicians who risked their lives to play a show for them.


    Featuring footage from the historic gig, the film also meets those that made it to the show and made the show happen; determined to keep living their lives despite the atrocities going on around them. Interviews with the band, crew and security bring home the reality of the situation that was not only dangerous, it was barbaric. "We weren't protected, there was no plan and the bullets were real, but fuck it, we went anyway" said Bruce in his recent best-selling autobiography What Does This Button Do?, "The gig was immense, intense and probably the biggest show in the world at that moment for the audience and for us. That the world didn't really know didn't matter. It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings".

    The First Live Album From The "Vintage" Years Of Ben Folds Five


    In 1997, PBS began airing
    Sessions at West 54th, a program
    far removed from the live music
    fare aimed at the older set that
    one usually finds on the network.
    Instead, Sessions at West 54th
    brought the hottest and hippest
    acts to New York to perform
    live in front of a studio audience.
    And one of the first acts asked
    to appear was Ben Folds Five. Which was a very big deal to the
    leader of the band. "I viewed it as an equal to a classic BBC live music
    television show," says Ben Folds. "I walked into it thinking, 'This is the
    one I leave [behind],' because it felt like some kind of a time capsule
    gig."


    Now, we at Real Gone Music are thrilled to present the complete
    performance by Ben Folds Five as recorded at Sony Music Studios.
    This 2-LP release represents the first live album to be released
    in either format from the "vintage" years of the trio (consisting of
    Folds, drummer Darren Jessee and bassist Robert Sledge). Among
    the 15 tunes are three from the group's self-titled debut, nine from
    their then-current release Whatever and Ever Amen featuring their hit
    "Battle of Who Could Care Less," and three songs that had not been
    released at the time ("Emaline," "Theme from 'Dr. Pyser'," and their
    radically reimagined cover of Flaming Lips' "She Don't Use Jelly"). Folds
    and crew were always a great live band-they even recorded their
    studio albums in a largely live setting-but this performance crackles
    with palpable
    intensity, brought
    home by this
    recording's
    flawless fidelity.
    But don't take

    Alive At Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary

    Until it closed in 2009, Tennessee's Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary was one of the most notorious penal institutions in America. Located in mountainous Petros, it was a forbidding rockpile hewn out of the rough countryside by its own inmates in 1896.


    On Oct. 17, 2001, Mark Collie came to Brushy Mountain with a sheaf of newly written songs about crime and punishment and an all-star band for a pair of performances that were recorded for a live album release. Mostly, though, Collie showed up at Brushy Mountain with a mission.


    God gave me the opportunity to get in there and share something that might make a difference, he says. I believed the songs could matter. I wanted to make something that people could find hope in, or redemption, or restoration, or forgiveness.


    His close friendship with country icon Johnny Cash supplied the principal inspiration for his own prison recording. Collie was well aware of Cash's celebrated 1968-69 live albums recorded at California's Folsom and San Quentin penitentiaries. He also knew the impact that a 1959 performance at the latter facility had on Inmate #A-45200, better known as the legendary country star Merle Haggard. Without Johnny going to San Quentin, Collie says, there might not have been a Merle Haggard. A lot of lives were changed or made better as a result of that music. Collie began writing his own cycle of prison songs.


    A top-flight crew of musicians was assembled, including guitarist Dave Grissom (John Mellencamp, Joe Ely), keyboardist Mike Utley (Jimmy Buffett, the Dixie Flyers), guitarist-mandolinist Tommy Burroughs (Memphis Riverbluff Clan), Collie's longtime accordionist Hassel Tekkle, bassist Willie Weeks (the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, B.B. King), drummer Chad Cromwell (Neil Young, Mark Knopfler), and guitarist-fiddler-vocalist and solo star Shawn Camp. Austin-based critics darling Kelly Willis, who takes lead vocals on two tracks, also supplied backup vocals on several numbers; the late Texas blues giant Clarence Gatemouth Brown is the album's other special guest.


    Alive at Brushy Mountain embraces a breadth of American styles - country, blues, gospel, bluegrass, and rock n roll. It largely comprises striking original material, which contemplates the convict's lot with compassion, keen detail, and sometimes boisterous humor.

    Reworks

    With its distinctive renditions of songs by DJ Shadow, My Bloody
    Valentine, Fleet Foxes, and more, Walt Wagner's Reworks shows how
    three Seattle institutions - Wagner, the city's renowned Canlis
    restaurant, and Sub Pop Records - have evolved over the years. When
    veteran pianist Wagner first landed at Canlis in 1996, he started out
    performing a set heavy on the Great American Songbook and the
    occasional pop tune. As young staff members recommended new
    artists and songs, Wagner's repertoire grew deeper and more varied -
    especially after the next generation of the Canlis family took over in
    2003. Yet whether the source material was Pink Floyd, Prince,
    Metallica, or the Weeknd, the challenge remained the same: "To distill
    the vibe on a record, the very essence of a song, into solo piano
    playing."


    One fateful night a couple years ago, a crew from Sub Pop were dining
    at the restaurant when they recognized melodies by Adele and Daft
    Punk wafting through the restaurant and decided to investigate. Canlis
    co-owner Mark Canlis offered the Sub Pop crew a full tour, and when
    he pulled out a vintage copy of the '60s LP Live At Canlis, an idea was
    born. With Wagner preparing to retire, the time was ripe for a recording
    that captured his inimitable gifts in their natural surroundings.


    In preparation for the big night, Wagner sat down with the Sub Pop
    team for more ideas. "I wanted them to feed me tunes that they loved
    and could imagine hearing me play." Sub Pop alumni Fleet Foxes and
    Band of Horses were already staples of Wagner's sets, but what magic
    could he work with DJ Shadow, Phoenix, or My Bloody Valentine? He
    had three months to find out.


    The album's opening selection, "Building Steam with a Grain of Salt,"
    provides a glimpse into Wagner's modus operandi. "The first time I
    listened to it, I said 'well what can I do with that?'" He recalls. "But
    the more I listened, the more I noticed these signature moments in the
    song, and through messing around with those and improvisation, I
    ended up with my version."


    Recorded before a packed house on October 9, 2016, Reworks is more
    than just a souvenir of a very special evening; it captures decades of
    musicianship that forged Wagner's distinctive style. He studied
    classical piano throughout his youth, yet kept his playing secret until
    he'd reached his teens, when he began playing in rock bands.


    While learning to improvise and play more rhythmically made him a hit
    with his peers, his classical instruction made his band the Exotics
    especially popular with local bookers. "We were one of the only bands
    that could read music, so we accompanied different stars of the time:
    Dick and Dee Dee, Johnny Crawford, all these '50s and early '60s
    artists that came to town." The Exotics even cut a single, a Wagner
    original entitled "Oasis," that made it to #3 on local radio station KJR
    in the summer of 1961.


    In the years that followed, Wagner played at downtown Seattle
    watering holes and eateries and refined his jazz chops. Two decades at
    Canlis taught him to interact with listeners in a whole new way. And
    now, flush with excitement over Reworks, Wagner may not stay retired
    for long.

    News Of The World (40th Anniversary Box Set)


    Pure Analogue Re-Cut Of The Original Vinyl LP, Direct From The Unmastered Analogue Master Mix Tapes


    Presented In A Facsimile Original Sleeve


    Three Posters And A 60-page Book Of Images


    Original Album On CD, Plus Two Further CDs Of Recently Unearthed Out-Takes And Rarities From The Band's Archives


    Brand New One-Hour DVD Documentary, Queen : The American Dream


    A special box set of Queen's landmark 1977 album News of the World is set for release, marking the 40th anniversary of the original release.


    Originally launched in October 1977, News of the World is one of Queen's biggest selling albums of all time. It opens with two of the band's most indestructible worldwide hits, the Brian May-penned We Will Rock You and Freddie Mercury's We Are The Champions, monumental stadium anthems which remain a staple of major sporting events all around the world to this day. With songs written by all four band members, NOTW, Queen's sixth album, set a new standard in stylistic diversity, from Roger Taylor's proto-punk blast of Sheer Heart Attack to the salacious funk-rock groove workout Get Down Make Love, to the fragrant tropical calypso-pop Who Needs You. News of the World also features the hit Spread Your Wings, the epic rock saga It's Late and Freddie's wistfully romantic My Melancholy Blues.


    The new package includes the original album on CD, plus two further CDs of recently unearthed out-takes and rarities from the band's archives, one of which is a newly created 'alternative' version of the whole album - Raw Sessions.


    For many Queen devotees, this Raw Sessions CD will be the most intriguing component of the new release. Mined deep from long-vaulted studio multi-track tapes, this extraordinary parallel album brings to light never-before-heard alternative versions of each of the album's 11 tracks. Every lead vocal is different, as are most of the lead guitar parts and a great many other instrumental details. Here we experience We Are The Champions anew, with many unfamiliar vocal and instrumental elements, and for the first time at its full-recorded length rather than the edited 1977 album cut. Here also is the chance to discover peak era Freddie Mercury vocals on a track that nobody outside Queen's inner circle has heard him sing before at all - Brian May's All Dead, All Dead. The original album version features May himself on vocals. Roger Taylor's Sheer Heart Attack can be heard with its original long-lost guitar intro and uncut ending. Taylor's other song, Fight From The Inside, is more remarkable in that we hear his demo vocal worked on in his home studio in preparation for the next sessions, 'homework' that all of the band members would regularly carry out. As a point of note, Taylor plays all instruments on these two recordings, except for some lead guitar. In this age of digital leaks and obsessive fan culture, there is already great excitement that these recordings are, in 2017, truly New to the World.


    The third CD in the package, Bonus Tracks, features a feast of previously released but hard-to-find versions of News of the World tracks recorded in concert, for radio shows, or in alternate mixes. Included is the band's entire five-song final live session recorded for BBC Radio in October 1977, seven live performances of NOTW songs, plus rare backing tracks and instrumentals of the Queen classics We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Spread Your Wings, Get Down, Make Love and Fight From The Inside. Also on this third disc is the seldom-heard US radio edit of It's Late, making its belated CD debut, and the rowdy stomper Feelings Feelings, which was recorded during the original NOTW sessions but not included on the final album.


    Another outstanding feature of this weighty 40th anniversary box is another first - a pure analogue re-cut of the original vinyl LP, direct from the unmastered analogue master mix tapes. This exceptional album collector's piece is presented in a facsimile original sleeve. There is also a rich selection of NOTW related memorabilia including three posters and a 60-page book of images, mostly previously unseen.


    The package is completed with a brand new one-hour DVD documentary, Queen : The American Dream, created from backstage material filmed during Queen's 1977 USA News of the World tour. In November that year, Queen embarked on another headlining US tour. The highly respected British radio and TV presenter Bob Harris, complete with full film crew, followed their journey as part of a proposed documentary that has remained incomplete and unreleased - until now. The crew had unlimited access to the band on and off stage, in the recording studio and during rehearsals. This one-hour documentary includes superb live footage of Queen at the Houston Summit in December. We also see moments from the birth of We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions, songs that would both earn a place in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Queen : The American Dream is a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into a young British band at a creative peak, defying the odds as they take the USA by storm.


    For casual fans and Queen connoisseurs alike, the new NOTW package, with its feast of extra material, is manna from Heaven - a bumper haul of buried treasure from a world-beating band in its prime.

    Eyehategod (Awaiting Repress)

    Legendary New Orleans gods of sludge, excess and mayhem EYEHATEGOD release their new, self-titled album.


    Mixed by Sanford Parker, Eyehategod will feature the final recordings of EYEHATEGOD drummer Joey LaCaze, who passed away last August of respiratory failure. He also suffered from severe long-term asthma. He has since been replaced by Aaron Hill, who comes by way of New Orleans' local acts MISSING MONUMENTS and MOUNTAIN OF WIZARD.


    In a recent interview with NPR, EYEHATEGOD frontman Mike IX Williams stated about the band's forthcoming album: We started out the recording with Billy Anderson. He recorded the drums, bass and some guitar, but that was a mess. There was a documentary crew in there filming, and it was distracting away from our time recording. Jimmy [Bower, guitar] was having a couple problems at the time too, waiting for his kid to be born, so it was a weird time to be in the studio. We ended up using just Joey's drum tracks from Billy. He's awesome - I love him and there's no hard feelings, but we just wanted to finish it somewhere else. We got Steve Berrigan to come out to where I live two hours outside of NOLA, and redid the bass and the guitars. Phil Anselmo [PANTERA, DOWN] gave me some ideas for the vocals, like how we did the ARSON ANTHEM record; me and him work well together.


    Asked if EYEHATEGOD ever considered giving up following Joey's passing, Mike said: It was never an option as far as I'm concerned. I don't think it was for anybody else either.


    This all happened at the end of September, when we'd just gotten back from a six-week tour of Europe. He's had pretty bad asthma ever since I've known him, and in Europe he was having these weird sleep apnea things when he was sleeping. It was a breathing issue, a respiratory thing, but I don't know; I'm not a doctor. So when we got back, that's when he passed away, so there was a little bit of time in there when we had to think - 'We've got shows booked. What do we do?' We did have to cancel probably 50% of them, but we still just said, 'Let's keep going, that's what he would want us to do.' We'd even had conversations before, when Joey and I would talk, and he'd ask me, 'Who would you get to replace me?' Things like that, and just be honest with each other. He knew the band would keep going, and he wanted it to.


    To me, it's just part of life; it's just the way things happen, what cards you're dealt, how life treats you.


    We don't know how to give up. That's been the story of our entire career, our lives, even without the band. We just don't know when to quit. It's just a matter of moving forward.

    Under Great White Northern Lights

    In the summer of 2007, shortly after the release of their 6th album Icky Thump, The White Stripes headed north of their hometown of Detroit to embark on an ambitious journey across Canada. The plan was to play a show in every province and territory in Canada, from B.C. to Newfoundland to Nunavut. Having never done a tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog, from the ocean to the permafrost explains Jack White. We wanted to play out of the way towns that don't usually get shows, the shows are better, it's better for the people, it's a better experience, it's way more unique, something interesting is going to happen, hopefully.


    White called upon filmmaker Emmett Malloy to come and document this trek for the band. Malloy had directed videos for the band in the past, and seemed eager to hit the road with them. Equipped with a couple of 16mm cameras, and a few other documenting devices, the band and crew all headed north. The end result was Under Great White Northern Lights.


    Under Great White Northern Lights is a visual and emotional feature length film documenting The White Stripes making their way through Canada and culminating with their 10th Anniversary show in Nova Scotia. The film documents the band playing shows all over Canada; from local bowling alleys, to city buses, and onward to the legendary Savoy Theater for the 10th Anniversary show. A show that turned out to be the longest show the band had ever done on stage together.


    The film captures intimate moments of Jack and Meg both on and off stage as they travel through some of the most remote parts of the northern Yukon Territory. Along the way, they have some nice casual conversations about their ten years together, fire cannons, play some of their biggest songs together on stage, and even play a one note show. The cameras were there to capture every waking moment.


    What Northern Lights does best is document one of the biggest bands in the world, playing to local crowds in small towns. Some of these towns were so small that many of the locals had no idea who The White Stripes were, they just knew something big was going on in their town. This forced a band that had been together for a decade to go back to a place reminiscent of the first shows they ever played together. For the first time in a long time, no one knew who they were and they had to make a first impression with their music.


    The live footage captured in this film shows that Jack and Meg were clearly ready for this. Beyond the live footage, some of the films most memorable moments happen off-stage, offering an insightful look into the very private and complex world that is The White Stripes. It was shortly after this tour that The White Stripes cancelled their fall tour of the U.S., making the ten year anniversary a truly pivotal milestone for this legendary band.


    This double 180g vinyl LP set features 16 tracks and serves as the soundtrack to the documentary film of the 2007 Canadian White Stripes tour.

    Gold: Their Great Hits


    Single 33 1/3 RPM LP Includes Poster Insert


    Gatefold Jacket


    Mastering By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio


    Mastered From The Original Analog Tapes


    200-Gram Plating And Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    Get your motor runnin' baby - Steppenwolf's Gold: Their Great Hits took its title literally. The towering rock album success rang in at No. 24 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart and became certified gold for record sales in excess of 500,000 units by the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA) in April 1971.


    AllMusic praised the production and engineering of most of the tracks and called it a nearly perfect introduction to the band. Acoustic Sounds and Analogue Productions want to introduce you to the most sonically perfect version of this historic album you've ever heard on vinyl. Our 200-gram 33 1/3 RPM reissue was remastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Sound and plated and pressed by Gary Salstrom and his crew at Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest-sounding LPs.


    The Canadian-American rock band, named for Hermann Hesse's mystical novel, rocketed to worldwide fame after their third single Born to Be Wild dropped in 1968. The song and Steppenwolf's version of Hoyt Axton's The Pusher figured prominently in the 1969 counterculture cult film Easy Rider, and both show up on Gold's track list. Two other singles on this stunning album compilation also cracked the Top 10 on the charts: Magic Carpet Ride and Rock Me.


    Magic Carpet Ride was released in 1968 on the album The Second. It was written by band members John Kay and Rushton Moreve, peaked at No. 3 in the U.S. and stayed on the charts for 16 weeks, longer than any other Steppenwolf song.


    You also get the Don Covay soul cover Sookie, Sookie, which got airplay on some soul stations nationwide, as well as rock 'n' roll radio. Gold also includes Hey Lawdy Mama the hit studio single from Steppenwolf Live.


    Steppenwolf enjoyed worldwide success from 1968 to 1972, when clashing personalities ultimately broke up the core group after a farewell concert in Los Angeles on Valentine's Day, 1972. Today, John Kay remains as the only original Steppenwolf member.

    I Can Spin A Rainbow

    I CAN SPIN A RAINBOW is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for Amanda Palmer, an avowed fan of Edward Ka-Spel and the Legendary Pink Dots since discovering their psycho-theatrical, multi-textural work in her teens. As noted in her best-selling 2014 memoir, The Art of Asking, the LPD have long been an inspiration to Palmer, their deeply connected relationship with fans as important to her life and work as their fearless autonomy and impossible-to-pigeonhole musical approach.


    The two musicians first met in 1992 when Palmer, then 16, attended a Legendary Pink Dots show in her hometown of Boston. In 1995, having found that the Pink Dots were looking for lodging with fans to save money on the road, Palmer hosted five members of the band and crew at her childhood home. Ten years later, Palmer's internationally acclaimed punk cabaret duo, The Dresden Dolls, had achieved enough success that they were able to invite the Dots to support them on a German tour, and it was then that Palmer and Ka-Spel vowed to carve out time to collaborate on an original recording. A decade passed and in July 2015 a very pregnant Palmer flew to London to start the long-discussed project but was informed on the first day of recording that her dear friend Anthony was losing his battle with cancer and had been given less than a week to live. Heartbroken, she assured Ka-Spel she would be back within the year. Indeed Palmer made good on her promise, returning in the spring of 2016 with her eight-month-old son, Anthony, in tow.


    Palmer and Ka-Spel's search for a London recording studio was interrupted by an incredibly generous offer from Palmer's friend Imogen Heap, who suggested they make use of her Essex home recording studio, The Hideaway, conveniently located near Ka-Spel's own home in Hornchurch. With Palmer traveling between London, Hornchurch, and Heap's home studio, the pair spent just under a month composing and cutting an album entirely from scratch.


    Recorded largely on Ka-Spel's computer, I CAN SPIN A RAINBOW is a truly collaborative effort, "a spiritual experience," says Palmer, in which both artists' stories, song fragments, poems, and lyrics became wholly meshed with loops, melancholy piano playing, melodic beds, and strange rhythms. The results range from the enchantingly minimal "The Clock at the Back of the Cage" and the album-opening "Pulp Fiction," mysterious and strange with a luxurious theatricality that conjures both of its creators' prior oeuvres while also opening a curtain into a heretofore unheard shared sonic world. Sensing the need for strings, the pair enlisted frequent LPD collaborator Patrick Q Wright, who contributed violin tracks from his studio in Italy. Alexis Michallek, Heap's longtime studio assistant, contributes singing saw to "Beyond The Beach."


    "We merged our songwriting heads and poetic worlds to make a new universe," Palmer says. "We would sit in Imogen's house drinking cups of tea, bemoaning the state of the upcoming election, binge drinking in the UK, the refugee crisis, our internet addictions, frightening news we had read, our relationships and then we'd compost all of the ingredients of our fears and conversations into song form. The Rainbow metaphor - which is also a nod to the 'spinning beach ball of death' on a Mac - was a wide-open image that kept popping up as a recurring theme on the record. It's both dark and light at the same time. To me, the songs are simultaneously frightening and comforting, like a thunderstorm heard from a living room."


    "Making this record with Amanda felt a little like discovering a twin you didn't know you had," says Ka-Spel, "until a mysterious email lands in your inbox at a particularly auspicious moment. Some things are just meant to be "

    Today! (Mono)

    33 1/3 RPM Mono Mixes Created Under Brian Wilson's Supervision


    Audio Production - Mark Linett


    For Brother Records - Elliott Lott


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio, Most From The Original Master Tapes Or Best Sources Available


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    To meet the standards of Analogue Productions, our Beach Boys album reissues had a mission to achieve: Present the band's music the way that Brian Wilson - famed co-founder, songwriter and arranger - intended. Mono mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California crew rose to fame! And we've got 'em!


    For the early part of the Beach Boys career, all of their singles were mixed and mastered and released only in the mono format - they didn't release a single in stereo until 1968. In those days, hits were made on AM radio in mono. And the mono of those times worked well for Wilson, who suffers from partial deafness. Still, apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today! was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.


    We've taken 10 of the most classic, best-sounding Beach Boy titles ever and restored them to their mono glory!


    But there's no disputing that the close harmonies and one-of-a-kind rhythms of hits like "Surfer Girl," "In My Room," "Little Deuce Coupe" and more lend themseleves naturally to stereo. So we've got your 2-channel needs covered with prime stereo mix versions as well.


    Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in old school Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time honored favorites shine brighter than the originals!


    Put simply, this is the Beach Boys at their mid-'60s prime. Ironically, the band's greatest evolutionary leap was spurred by its leader, Brian Wilson, who decided to drop out of the band's live performances after a December 1964 nervous breakdown to concentrate on honing the Beach Boys' studio sound. With Wilson's productions gaining a significant new depth and confidence (note the innovative modulations on 'Dance, Dance, Dance'), the first half of Today seems a logical, upbeat step forward from its predecessors. But it's the album's second act that steals the show, setting the stage for the triumph of Pet Sounds. Indeed, it's easy to imagine gorgeous, introspective tracks such as 'Please Let Me Wonder,' 'She Knows Me Too Well,' and 'In the Back of My Mind' intertwined with the best of Sounds. - Amazon.com

    All Mitch Ryder Hits!

    As a very talented teenager playing in rock and soul bands across the Detroit area, future rock and roll legend Mitch Ryder was soon discovered by mega producer and label owner Bob Crewe (Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons). Having a knack for producing and writing many hit records, in 1966 Crewe recorded Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels in the studio and cut what many believe to be one of the first rock meets blue eyed soul albums with the Take A Ride, which of course featured their first chart topper Jenny Take A Ride. From this moment on, the Mitch Ryder persona was born, becoming a hero to many rock and roll fans throughout the world.


    Mitch Ryders numerous appearances on national television shows, the concert circuit and continual airplay on all his records made him a fixture on the music charts. His next number of hit singles and albums truly impacted the way a lot of us listen to music to this day. The two and a half to three minute anthems like Devil With a Blue Dress On/Good Golly Miss Molly, Too Many Fish in the Sea/Three Little Fishes and the near riot pandemonium of Sock It to Me-Baby have all truly stood the test of time.


    Noting all of the chart successes and sales of the Mitch Ryder name brand, the good folks at New Voice Records honored this famed artist with his own greatest hits album, the magnificent All Mitch Ryder Hits in 1968. This original album has been out of print for many years and for several decades in the vinyl format, that is until now.


    Friday Music is proud to offer the original New Voice Records masterpiece, the All Mitch Ryder Hits for the first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl. Mastered impeccably from the original New Voice stereo tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records in Hollywood, California, this amazing album truly sounds incredible in the audiophile vinyl domain. It is also the first installment in Friday Music's Mitch Ryder Original Recording Masters series, which will feature ongoing reissues from his classic and most important recordings from the classic rock era.


    This greatest hits album features all of the Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels original hit recordings mentioned above as well as more killer workouts like Little Latin Lupe Lu, Joy, Breakout, Id Rather Go to Jail and a super soul interpretation of Wilson Picketts classic In the Midnight Hour.


    Friday Music has also included the original rare album cover artwork featuring the hip full color live front cover photo and the live concert action shots on the back cover. Their All Mitch Ryder Hits LP also includes a poly bag to protect your album cover and a poly lined vinyl sleeve to protect your 180 Gram vinyl.

    Deer Tick Vol. 1

    The best art often challenges widely held preconceptions about performance and beauty.We're moved when we find the sublime in the gross, entranced when crassness collides with grace. It makes poetic sense that one of this practice's finest current purveyors is named after a blood-sucking survivor.

    Deer Tick: undercutting expectations since 2004.

    I think a lot of my favorite artists have always done stuff like that, Deer Tick front man John McCauley says from his home in Nashville, reflecting on his band's love of unexpected mashups: tender lyrics layered over pissed off guitars; classical music flourishes delivered nearly naked and high. Deer Tick's perfected it all, mostly as an outlier, revered by a legion of fans, respected by peers, but not part of any one scene. With their highly anticipated new project(s), two new albums released simultaneously titled Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol.2, the crew from Rhode Island prove that their punk-roots rock has only gotten better with age.

    Ambitious and smart, the twin albums complement one another but also stand independently.Vol. 1 is classic Deer Tick: folk-rooted acoustic guitars and soft piano cushion out-front vocals. Vol. 2 commits wholly to the band's longtime garage-rock flirtations for a triumphant foray into punk.

    McCauley sees the two records as a natural progression. I think it's something that was bound to happen, just because I've always had one foot in each door, he says. Every album we've put out has had its manic moments in one way or another. I felt good enough about everything that I was writing to think that we could truly separate our two big interests: quiet and loud.

    It's been four years since Deer Tick's last release Negativity, and devotees have grown restless. It wasn't that the band-made up of McCauley, guitarist Ian O'Neil, drummer Dennis Ryan, and bassist Christopher Ryan-was withholding information. They just weren't sure they had anything more to share. It wasn't anything that we actually talked about, McCauley says. We never said, 'Hey, we should take a break,' or 'Maybe this isn't working anymore.'We just took some time off. We'd just done our 10-year anniversary shows, and I had a kid like two weeks later. He pauses before adding with a hint of a laugh, We just kind of got comfortable away from each other.

    McCauley, O'Neil, and the two Ryans popped up solo and on others' projects. Personal lives also underwent massive changes, especially for McCauley, who married Vanessa Carlton and became a dad. The couple's little girl is now two years old. For the first time ever, Deer Tick-an all-consuming band known for constant touring and steady artistic output-took a backseat.

    When the band came back together for their beloved after-party shows at the Newport Folk Festival, the reunion reminded them what they missed about creating with one another.Playing that week with the guys made me really want to do it-it made everyone want to do it, McCauley says. So we started making some plans to go in the studio.

    The result, recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, is a bold double punch that reminds us not only why Deer Tick has been so missed, but why they've become important artists. The songwriting on both volumes is masterful. McCauley wrote most of the tunes alone, but O'Neil and Dennis Ryan also make killer contributions. Self-aware and never self important,McCauley excels at provocative lyrics that are sometimes confessional, sometimes accusatory. His compositions capture those internal contradictions that define us, like rock and-rollsongs of myself delighting in the multitudes and putting them on display.

    Vol. 1 opener Sea of Clouds is a dreamy mediation on letting go, featuring stripped down instrumentation that swells into a mini-symphony, all anchored by angelic harmonies and McCauley's familiar melodic snarl. It's not the only time McCauley mulls over what it takes to move on. Heart-tugging Only Love mixes sadness and hope for a snapshot of impending loss. I thought, 'Nobody writes a song about that kind of weird, ominous feeling you get in the final 24 to 48 hours of a relationship,' McCauley says. I wanted to capture that mood ina song.

    Sauntering Card House is a flamenco-soaked threat with grotesque imagery, while lounge readyCocktail is a wry, piano-fueled stroll through fond boozy memories. I guess it's kind of a song about my strange relationship with alcohol-I'm still learning how to deal with it,McCauley says. I'm not a teetotaler. I've tried that. It's not for me. I'm not into the support group thing. I enjoy life with a drink. Trying to keep my life in balance can be hard, but it's something I'm capable of doing now.

    Tricky relationships with drugs and alcohol are addressed in different ways on both volumes.Hushed Vol. 1 closer Rejection pulses with vulnerability. I wrote it about trying to help somebody in some way, McCauley says. What was going through my mind but I didn't sayin the lyrics is just reaching your hand out to somebody who's going through substance abuse problems. Vol. 2's Jumpstarting-a favorite track of McCauley's-offers the same kind of lifeline: he shouts startlingly sweet promises over crunchy guitars.

    Look How Clean I Am immediately follows. Written and sung by O'Neil, the song doesn't poke fun at sobriety but offers a droll takedown of how some use it as a means or marketing vehicle to further celebrity. It's one of many genuinely funny moments on the project. JumpingS.M.F., (aka Shitty Music Festival) written and delivered by McCauley, takes hilarious shots at a summer institution. I thought I'd write that one for any band who's ever had a bad time ata music festival. It's one of my attempts at humor on the record, but then it just kind of comes off as anger, McCauley says with a laugh.

    McCauley wrote gorgeous instrumental Pulse thinking about the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. He lets his piano do the talking. It's a Whale is punk perfection, all screams and growling guitars. That's probably the most political I'll ever get in a song, McCauley says. I tried to put myself in the really dark headspace of maybe a men's rights activist or something like that while trying to poke fun at it. His chants of Atta boy! Atta girl! are the ideal blend of smirk-inducing and scary.

    McCauley says he believes Sea of Clouds and It's a Whale probably best capture theextremities of both records. He's right, of course: it's Vol. 1's quiet vs. Vol. 2's loud-Deer Tick's dual personalities, finally channeled onto two distinct and equally brilliant records.These albums represent a new phase of my life that I haven't entirely figured out yet,McCauley says. I don't really know what's going to happen, but that's part of the excitement for me.
