    Moondance

    Ranked 65/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.


    Remastered From The Original Analog Master Tapes By Kevin Grey At Acoustech Mastering


    Van Morrison's 1970's follow up album to Astral Weeks titled Moondance was every bit as brilliant; buoyant and optimistic where Astral Weeks had been dark and anguished, it cracked the Top 40 and generated classic hits.

    Bill Withers' Greatest Hits (Awaiting Repress)

    Bill Withers Bill Withers' Greatest Hits on Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Bill Withers' Smooth Soul Voice, Mellow Grooves, and Gospel Accents Inform Beloved Work: Booker T. Jones, Al Jackson, and Stephen Stills Among Guest Instrumentalists on Greatest Hits


    Essential Bill Withers' Greatest Hits Compilation Includes Ubiquitous Classics Such as Ain't No Sunshine, Lean on Me, Lovely Day, Use Me, and Grandma's Hands


    Mobile Fidelity 180g LP Pressed at RTI: Roots R&B Has Never Sounded Better on Any Format


    Bill Withers created mellow, downhome-style soul for barely more than a decade before retreating from the industry to pursue craftsman interests. Yet over the course of the handful of albums he made for Sussex and CBS, the Appalachian native struck lasting emotional chords in legends ranging from Booker T. Jones to Stephen Stills - not to mention the millions of listeners that fell under the spell of now-standard tracks such as Lean on Me, Use Me, and Ain't No Sunshine. The antithesis of the sweaty R&B shouter that prowled the edge of stages, Withers dealt in calm and vulnerability, qualities that come to fore on the seminal Bill Withers' Greatest Hits.


    Pressed on 180g LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's vinyl reissue of the 1981 compilation provides a transparent view of Withers' relaxing timbre and the subtle grooves underlining his arrangements. Characteristics ranging from the tension of the guitars, funky bends of the bass, whisper-soft coo of the formal strings, airiness of the backing harmonies, and sharpness of the snare drum emerge with utmost clarity and lifelike presence. Always prized for its naked honesty and pure conviction, Withers' music positively caresses the senses on this LP, the unadulterated production and beautiful soundscapes revealed anew with each listen.


    Incredibly, Withers almost never got a shot at recording. After receiving a deal from Sussex while laboring as a toilet-seat manufacturer, he landed in the care of Stax bandleader Booker T. Jones, who gathered most of his fellow MG members - along with Stills and Jim Keltner - to assist in Withers' debut. Two takes from those sessions, the Grammy-winning Ain't No Sunshine and devotional Grandma's Hands, are included here, and showcase the vocalist's incredible breath control, folksy drawl, and restrained phrasing. They also indicate his penchant for converting biographical experience into eminently catchy combinations of pop, gospel, blues, and soul.


    Evidence of Withers' crossover appeal is found not only via his chart successes on both the pop and R&B charts, but in the DNA of his best work. There's not one forgettable moment on Greatest Hits. Covered by the likes of Fiona Apple, Mick Jagger, Isaac Hayes, Alicia Keys, and dozens more, Use Me rides a riveting clarinet riff and urban tempo to express the double-edged feelings associated with an edgy relationship. On the loping Who Is He (And What Is He to You?), Withers again splits the bitter and sweet. For the Latin-tinged Lovely Day, Withers holds a single note for 18 seconds and composed a song that's been sampled and rerecorded countless times by artists spanning Diana Ross to R. Kelly. And with Lean on Me, the West Virginian devised a masterpiece that's been for more than four decades part of the classic American songbook, an updated hymn carried to immortality by members of the Charles Wright & 103rd Street Rhythm Band.


    A veritable template for British soul contemporaries like Sam Smith and an extension of the timeless fare explored by Van Morrison, Curtis Mayfield, and Al Green, Bill Withers' Greatest Hits belongs in every music lover's library.

    In The Right Place

    Dr. John, or Mac Rebennack as known to friends and family, is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. His very colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford. A notorious gun incident forced the artist to give up the guitar and concentrate on organ and piano. Further trouble at home sent Dr. John west in the 1960s, where he continued to be in demand as a session musician, playing on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison and Aretha Franklin to name a few. He also launched his solo career, developing the charismatic persona of Dr. John The Night Tripper. Adorned with voodoo charms and regalia, a legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album Gris-gris, which established his unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots. Several of his many career highlights include the masterful album Sun, Moon and Herbs in 1971 which included cameos from Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger and 1973's In The Right Place, which contained the chart hits Right Place Wrong Time and Such A Night.

    Ray Charles (Awaiting Repress)


    First Time On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl!


    Ray Charles' Stunning Atlantic Records Debut!


    The One That Started The Genius Of Soul Phenomenon!


    Mastered For The First Time From The Original Monophonic Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Ray Charles was the premiere architect singer/songwriter/musician whose "genius" of combining jazz, blues
    with gospel most certainly began the American soul music movement. This modern form of R&B which would become
    an American way of life forever etched itself in total with the release of his classic #1 hit single I Got a Woman from
    his stunning debut 1957 album Ray Charles.


    Fused with heavy blues, gospel and rock and roll, I Got a Woman was one of Ray's very first top charting hits
    soon to be followed by other #1 smash hit singles like Mess Around and A Fool for You. More hit singles graced his first
    album as well with Hallelujah I Love Her So, Ain't That Love and This Little Girl of Mine. The Ray Charles album itself
    on its own merit is truly a Greatest Hits LP, whereby most of these early Ray Charles' hit tracks have been covered
    hundreds of times by some of the most important voices in popular music, like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Steve
    Miller Band, Van Morrison, Peggy Lee, Johnny Winter, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder and many others.


    Also included on this debut masterpiece are some of Ray Charles' more definitive blues rockers like the powerful
    Come Back Baby, the rockin' Greenbacks, the #1 blues rocker Mary Ann, and the brilliant soul sounds of Don't You
    Know, Drown in My Own Tears and Losing Hand.


    The Ray Charles album forever etched the name superstar and genius with Ray Charles as the LP reached the
    upper rungs of the popular, jazz and R&B charts and has become an American institution which will forever stand the
    test of time. Being one of his rarest LP's of his career, the magnificent album has not been officially released on vinyl
    in over five decades and fetches hundreds of dollars for a mint used copy if you can even find one.


    Friday Music is very honored to announce the first time ever 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl LP of the Ray Charles'
    classic Ray Charles. As another installment in our treasured Ray Charles/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series, his
    amazing debut LP is mastered from the original monophonic Atlantic Records' tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music
    Studios and at Capitol Mastering with Ron McMaster. This masterwork truly sounds exceptional and will become one

    stunning liner notes by Guy Remark.

    The Best Of Atlantic Soul 1962-1965


    The First Domestic Vinyl Collection Of His Groundbreaking Atlantic Recordings Released Since 1966

    Solomon Burke helped to shape the sound of rhythm and blues as one of
    the founding fathers of soul music. He had a litany of hit singles in the
    1960s for Atlantic Records including "Cry to Me," "If You Need Me," "Down
    in the Valley," and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," to name a few.
    Atlantic Records' co-founder Jerry Wexler has referred to Burke as "the
    greatest male soul singer of all time" and it was reported that he signed a
    "handshake" deal with the label within ten minutes of originally entering
    Wexler's office. His signing helped to reinvigorate the label, as stars Bobby
    Darin and Ray Charles had just left.


    Drawing inspiration from gospel, jazz, country and blues-Burke developed
    his own unique style and was often called "The King of Rock 'n' Soul"
    earning him a wide bi-racial audience. Due to his spiritual background he
    refused to be classified as an R&B singer because of its labeled stigma
    by the church. During his almost six decades of performing, he released
    38 studio albums-selling at total 17 million-and had 35 charting singles
    including 26 that made the Billboard R&B charts.


    In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as a performer
    and has been ranked by Rolling Stone on their list of "100 Greatest
    Singers of All Time." Burke is one of the most important male vocalists in
    music history and has influenced legendary rockers such as the Rolling
    Stones, Elvis Costello, Van Morrison, the Animals and Tom Petty
