    A Collection Of Songs Written And Recorded 1995-1997

    The debut album for Bright Eyes was compiled from 4 reels of analog 4-track recordings which Conor Oberst had made prior to his 18th birthday. Conor spent most all of his teenage years touring and playing music with bands such as Commander Venus and Park Ave. Now, he has focused his efforts on Bright Eyes, the moniker by which he shares his intimate and personal stories. The 20 songs on this album are stated elegantly and humbly with guitars, keyboards, drums, and voice. Oberst's imagery and storytelling is at times quite sad and other times rather uplifting, yet always exhibits sophistication.

    Obscurities


    Includes Five Previously Unreleased Tracks by Stephin Merritt


    Limited to 2000 Copies


    Obscurities is a collection of Stephin Merritts (The Magnetic Fields) hard-to-find recordings dating back to his time on Merge (19941999) and prior. The 14 tracks on Obscurities, including five previously unreleased songs, were recorded prior to the release of The Magnetic Fields seminal album 69 Love Songs, which established Merritt as one of this generations most talented songwriters. Three of the unreleased tracks hail from The Song from Venus, the unfinished science fiction musical written by Merritt and Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket. Also included are four songs culled from various Merge-era 7 vinyl singles by The Magnetic Fields; two from The 6ths, Merritts guest vocalist-laden side project; one from an audio book; one from the Oh, Merge compilation CD; and a track from a rare K Records cassette-only release.


    Among the tracks on Obscurities is The Song from Venus Forever and a Day, a solo-acoustic ukulele-based love song reminiscent of 69 Love Songs The Book of Love. Also included on Obscurities is The Sun and the Sea and the Sky, a previously unreleased 69 Love Songs outtake. Merritt points out: This song didnt go on 69 Love Songs because it wasnt actually about romantic love. The album concludes with You Are Not My Mother and I Want to Go Home, which originally appeared in the audio book version of Neil Gaimans Coraline, for which Merritt composed the soundtrack.

    Come A Little Bit Closer

    First Time On Vinyl


    This generous 17-track compilation of Willy DeVille's live performances covers his early years with Mink DeVille in 1977 extending to solo work in 2006. All songs were recorded in Europe, perhaps an indication of how well he was accepted there as opposed to his home country. That's especially interesting given how much his music drew almost entirely from American influences such as '60s Brill Building pop, New Orleans/Cajun, R&B, and an inner city Latin style best exemplified in a sizzling version of Demasiado Corazon.


    Many of his heavy hitters are present in fired-up versions, sometimes even better than the studio originals. Get hip on his great renditions of Venus Of Avenue D, Love And Emotion, Demasiado Corazon, Spanish Stroll and a splendid version of the all time classic Hey Joe.


    This compilation is now available on vinyl for the first time!

    Livin' Blues was a Dutch blues-rock group from The Hague, the Netherlands founded in 1967.

    Human

    On HUMAN, Three Days Grace re-teamed with producer Gavin Brown who produced the band's platinum-selling 2003 self-titled debut album. "We went back to our roots a bit and recaptured that collaborative feeling of being in a band and bringing out the best ideas in each other," says band member Neil Sanderson. "Gavin was a huge part of that in the beginning and we feel like we're back in those days where we're high-fiving each other with guitars in our hands." In addition, Nick Raskulinecz and Chris Lorde Alge mixed HUMAN. The band has spent much of the year vigorously touring, writing and recording their new album.


    Three Days Grace is Matt Walst (lead vocals), Neil Sanderson (drums, piano, backing vocals), Brad Walst (bass guitar), and Barry Stock (lead guitar).The band holds the record with now 13 #1 singles at Active Rock Radio, more than any other band in history and has sold over 6 million albums in the United States. The band's first single on HUMAN with new singer Matt Walst "Painkiller" celebrates their 12th #1 single and "I Am Machine" is their #13th number one and second single with Matt as their lead singer.


    Their previous album TRANSIT OF VENUS was released in October 2012, debuted #1 on the Hard Rock Chart and Top 5 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and was nominated for Best Rock Album of the Year by the Juno Awards. TRANSIT OF VENUS spawned three #1 singles "Chalk Outline," "The High Road" and "Misery Loves My Company," Their other #1s include 'World So Cold,""Good Life," "Break," "Never Too Late," "Animal I Have Become," "Pain," "Just Like You" and "Home" from previous albums.

    Teatime Assortment

    Since before he was even able to play an instrument, Martin Newell was
    messing around with home-recordings. Having grown up in the Far East, Newell
    returned to his home of England at age 13 with just a little 3-inch spool
    tape-recorder and his first guitar. At age 14 he wrote his first song, not even
    knowing any chords. His song writing continued through is teens and into his
    20s, when he purchased a Sony reel-to-reel recorder and 12 string guitar. It
    is this early songwriting that led him working with a wide variety of musicians,
    recording in beautiful studios and forming his many projects such as Cleaners
    from Venus and Brotherhood of Lizards. But it was this early songwriting and
    recording that led him to find that he was happiest when recording by himself,
    with minimal equipment. As Newell often says, "Actually, I preferred the demos".


    Having upgraded himself from reel-to-reel to a Tascam Pocketstudio and
    digitizing some of his archaic recording knowledge, Newell set out to
    begin home recording again. The tracks on this collection run from 2010
    to mid 2014. Some are recordings loosely based on movie themes and
    soundtracks for imaginary films. Some are instrumentals from a collection
    called The Late District, while others are from a recent album Return to
    Bohemia, which saw a small release in England. This recent resurgence
    in creative strength, along with the success and newfound popularity of
    Cleaners from Venus, have all led up to Teatime Assortment. Think of it as a
    "Best of New Newell". A true wordsmith, Newell himself has put simply why
    one might be compelled to take a listen here: "If you're the sort of person
    who likes this kind of thin, then this is the sort of thing you'll probably like."

    Experimental Art/Rock Group From New York, Tracks Selection Include I'm Waiting For The Man, Venus In Furs, Heroin And More Classics


    An album by The Velvet Underground needs to be in the collection of every legitimate music lover. Those who do not yet have an album from this legendary group can now fill this gap by purchasing the new Collected.


    The band, with artistic exponents of text and music writers Lou Reed and John Cale, influenced generations of rock musicians and groups. Certainly, in the 70s and early 80s the cult status of this group, briefly managed by Andy Warhol, reached extraordinary proportions. The Velvet Underground was already a real punk band ten years before the rise of this music genre. This was reflected in their lifestyle, drug use and attitude. Musically, however, you can hardly compare them with punk music. With songs like Heroin, I'm Waiting For The Man and White Light / White Heat, they released a new definition of rock and roll.


    The Collected compilation consists of 2 LPs with a total of 23 songs. One of the above-mentioned classics is I'm Waiting For The Man, in which the protagonist's addiction forces him to wait for his dealer with his twenty-six dollars in hand, a number that expresses an addict in an unprecedented direct and realistic way. The chaotic and sometimes atonal music confirm the grim narrative. In addition, we will find What Goes On, Pale Blue Eyes, Venus In Furs and many more songs from the pivotal band.

    Fits & Starts


    LP Packaging Features Custom Adhesive Wrap & 16 Page Booklet


    For the tenth volume of FRKWYS, composer,
    percussionist and sound designer david Van
    tieghem alongside ten younger artists from
    across the avant spectrum become a bulletin
    of Fits & Starts.


    In July of 2012, RVNG Intl. was invited to participate in Bulletin Boards, a group
    exhibition at Venus over manhattan curated by White Columns' gallery director matthew
    Higgs. An extension of an ongoing project which resides in the entrance of White
    Columns' downtown New York gallery, Bulletin Boards featured 24 artists/entities, each
    given a new bulletin board as an inspirational starting point.


    In 1981, David Van Tieghem produced the experimental music video Ear To The
    Ground. The film features Van Tieghem "playing" downtown New York City, a world
    in which Van Tieghem established his rhythmic roots as a member of the love of life
    orchestra, a frequent collaborator with laurie anderson, and a player on steve reich's Music
    For 18 Musicians, robert ashley's Perfect Lives (Private Parts) / Perfect Lives and david Byrne
    and Brian eno's My Life in the Bush With Ghosts among other seminal recordings including
    his own.


    In Ear To The Ground, all city surfaces become communications-or bulletins-under
    Van Tieghem's twiddling, thwacking and thumping thumbs. Partially inspired by this and
    by our blank but physically limited canvas space, Van Tieghem agreed to take part in
    a sequence of improvised performances and creative editing to become part of our
    FRKWYS series.


    We also invited ten younger musicians to post objects to the board. A cross section of
    present day New York artists were represented by way of sam Hillmer as diamond terrifier
    (with the aid of max alper), Future shuttle, Georgia, roberto Carlos lange as Helado negro,
    darren Ho, eli keszler, Hiro kone and megafortress, alongside the regionally sympathetic
    Blanche Blanche Blanche and maxmillion dunbar.


    In place of business cards, broadsheets, and flyers, the objects/communications
    contributed were broken toasters, firecrackers, 2x4s, thunder drums and customized
    electronics, each intended as a percussive device. On opening night, the bulletin board,
    disguised as assemblage, welcomed David's dialogue.


    In the spirit of Ear To The Ground's infinite conversation, Van Tieghem returned to
    Venus Over Manhattan to "play" the bulletin board without an audience. The process
    of Van Tieghem discovering and responding to the objects/bulletins again was multitracked in high definition.


    These recordings were then presented to the ten contributing musicians for further
    translation, "remix" and interpretation. For the final sequence, the unique pieces were
    delivered to Van Tieghem to edit and embellish as the sound collages presented as Fits
    & Starts across two album length sides of our tenth volume in the FRKWYS series.

    A Caddy for Daddy

    Blue Note Reissue



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


    Hank Mobley was a perfect artist for Blue Note in the 1960s. On this LP, which is a straight reissue of the 1965 session, Mobley is joined by trumpeter Lee Morgan, trombonist Curtis Fuller, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Billy Higgins (a typically remarkable Blue Note lineup) for the infectious title cut, three other lesser-known but superior originals, plus Wayne Shorter's Venus Di Mildew.

    Bjork Greatest Hits

    Bjork closed out her first decade as a solo artist with the retrospective Bjork's Greatest Hits. Despite its somewhat pedestrian title and approach (especially considering some of her intricate import collections and box sets) she still managed to find a way to put a twist on the collection: she let her fans vote for which songs they wanted included on the tracklisting. Overall, they did a pretty good job; with the notable exception of It's Oh So Quiet which is probably her biggest single the collection touches on most of the biggest songs from each of her albums. The album puts most of its focus on the middle portion of her career to date, culling four tracks each from Post and Homogenic, but still makes room for old favorites such as Debut's Venus as a Boy and Human Behaviour, as well as newer singles such as Vespertine's Pagan Poetry and Hidden Place. Bjork's Greatest Hits is a nice way to celebrate the beginning of another decade's worth of her innovative music.

    Hits For Kids

    Includes A CD Copy Of The Album


    After releasing the Venus & Mars 10 earlier this year, Jett Rebel stirred up the music scene in The Netherlands by playing numerous gigs on festivals like Lowlands and Pinkpop, and receiving several national awards for his musical artistry. It is safe to say, 23 year old Jelte Tuinstra is simply bound for stardom.


    Debuting with 14 psychedelic, pure Pop songs, his first full-length album is called Hits For Kids. As Jett himself explains, Hits For Kids implies that it's something you don't expect. It fits the theme of the record; nothing is what it seems. Tuinstra himself calls Hits For Kids songs for free spirits. Songs for people that want and dare to be themselves. Jett (or Jelte) really tells a linear story with Hits For Kids. The 14 songs are interweaved into one listening experience, telling the story of his coming-of-age since the first moment of his breakthrough last year.


    Everything on the album has been written, composed and played by himself: drums, bass, guitar, vocals, organ, accordion, synth, percussion, even flute & sax. Hits For Kids was mixed in London by Tony Platt, known for mixing Bob Marley, AC/DC and Foreigner. The album is mastered by Ray Staff, who also mastered Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, The Clash and Muse.


    This vinyl edition of Hits For Kids includes a CD copy of the album!

    3rd Album

    Shocking Blue was a Dutch rockband from The Hague that was at their peak in the sixties and seventies and gained major cross-Atlantic success. The band was founded in 1967 and after recruiting vocalist Mariska Veres they soon became huge. With their single 'Venus' they became the first Dutch band ever to reach the first spot on the American Billboard Hot 100. The band had a series of subsequent hits but decided to call it a day in 1975. Their influence reached well beyond their generation: even bands like Nirvana and The Prodigy used Shocking Blue's 'Love Buzz'.


    '3rd Album' is strangely enough not their third full-length album but their fourth and was originally released in 1971. This reissue comes with six bonus tracks consisting of singles and b-sides and a gatefold sleeve.

    Holst: The Planets (Speakers Corner)

    Earth was not created in a day. And the same applies to Gustav Holst's interplanetary symphony which took him about three years to write. The composer employs a massive orchestra and rich orchestral colouring to portray each planet in his musical psychogram.



    Mars, the Bringer of War, rages with mechanical brutality, while Venus brings peace and an acceptance of life. Mercury, the Winged Messenger, darts here and there with quicksilver speed, while powerful and sovereign Jupiter brings jollity and reassurance. Saturn plods by with heavy tread, while Uranus with its contrasting changes in tempo remains enigmatic and extrovert. And because Pluto, the most distant planet had not yet been discovered, it is Neptune, the great unknown, which is lost in time and space in an endless ostinato of female voices.
    Zubin Mehta and the Los Angeles Philharmonic present this astronomical journey with precision and exhilaration, leaving neither time nor space for astrological speculation. As always, the excellent DECCA recording quality guarantees an unimpeded view of this musical galaxy.



    Recording: April 1971 at Royce Hall, Los Angeles by James Lock and Colin Moorfoot

    Production: John Mordler




    About Speakers Corner



    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Upside Down Mountain

    Though only 34, Conor Oberst has been a recording artist for more than two decades, starting with raw, acoustic guitar-based bedroom tracks he cut as a young teenager and initially released on cassette. After his early Omaha-based band Commander Venus broke up, Oberst recast himself as Bright Eyes, an umbrella name for Oberst, producer-keyboardist Mike Mogis and multi-instrumentalist/arranger Nathaniel Wolcott, and a shifting group of collaborators. By the time he released Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground on Saddle Creek, the label he helped found with friends in Omaha, Oberst was a word-of-mouth success, with an avid young audience that helped to sell out his tours. The critics soon followed. Rolling Stone called him "a true American original: the ghost of Walt Whitman setting up shop in the wraith-white, rail-thin frame of an acoustic-strumming Nebraska Cure fan." The 2005 simultaneous release of two markedly different Bright Eyes albums-the more singer-songwriter-oriented I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning and the darker, computerized Digital Ash in a Digital Urn-displayed the breadth of his talent. Time Magazine listed I'm Wide Awake among its top 10 albums of the year. Since then, Bright Eyes has continued to evolve, its lineup morphing with each successive tour. While supporting his 2007 Cassadaga album, Oberst took over New York City's Town Hall for a week of sold-out shows, with his large, string-augmented ensemble outfitted spectacularly in white suits. He's also recorded and toured with Mogis, Jim James, and M. Ward as Monsters of Folk as well as with his own Mystic Valley Band. For the first leg of his summer 2014 tour, he's bringing along Wilson's other pals, the Southern Californian quartet Dawes as his support act and backing band.


    "I feel lucky that I have been able to do this for as longs as I have," declares Oberst. "I've seen so many talented friends come and go, for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes they stop making music because they can't pay the bills or they lose the passion for it. At this point it is my life. I don't know another way to live. There is something fundamental in myself; I have to be this way. It completes what I am."


    Upside Down Mountain features many other friends of Oberst's, including producer Jonathan Wilson, engineer Andy LeMaster, bassist Macey Taylor, multi-instrumentalist Blake Mills, and the Swedish sibling folk-rock vocal duo First Aid Kit. What started as exploratory demos with producer-musician Jonathan Wilson at his Fivestar Studios in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, in a home Wilson rents from Oberst, became the first de facto album sessions. Returning to his native Omaha, Nebraska, Oberst kept rolling with the help of frequent collaborator, engineer, and friend Andy LeMaster at his own ARC Studios. Even more tracking followed in Omaha last November and December. Then Oberst and Wilson moved south to Blackbird Studio in Nashville.


    "This is a return to an earlier way I wrote," Oberst says of the songs on Upside Down Mountain. "It's more intimate or personal, if you will. Even if all my songs come from the same place, you make different aesthetic decisions along the way. For me, language is a huge part of why I make music. I'm not the greatest guitar player or piano player-I'm not the greatest singer, either-but I feel if I can come up with melodies I like that are fused with poetry I'm proud of, then that's what I bring to the table. That's why I'm able to do this."

    1989's Mother's Milk is the album that broke the Red Hot Chili Peppers into the rock mainstream. Despite suffering the loss of drummer Jack Irons and guitarist Hillel Slovak a year earlier, founding members Anthony Kiedis and Flea found exceptional replacements in Chad Smith and John Frusciante. A cover of Stevie Wonder's Higher Ground and a tribute to Slovak, Knock Me Down, were both big MTV successes, as were such other highlights as Taste the Pain (featured prominently in the movie Say Anything), Good Time Boys, Subway to Venus, Magic Johnson and Sexy Mexican Maid.

    Conor Oberst

    Conor Oberst's new self-titled solo release was made in Tepoztlßn, Morelos, M?xico, a place known for Aztec magic and extra-terrestrial sightings. A temporary studio was constructed in a mountain villa called Valle M?stico at the outskirts of town and a special band called The Mystic Valley Band was assembled for the recording. The album was produced by Conor Oberst and engineer/long time associate, Andy LeMaster. It was there at Valle M?stico that Oberst and the band lived and worked in near perfect harmony, often unaware of the hour or the day. The result is his first solo album in thirteen years, following Water (1993), HereÆs To Special Treatment (1994) and Soundtrack To My Movie (1995). In that time Conor Oberst has recorded and performed in many bands and musical projects including Commander Venus, Park Ave., Desaparecidos and most notably Bright Eyes, his main musical vehicle for the past decade.

    4 Exclusive Bonus Tracks!


    Formed in 1967 by former Motions guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen, Shocking Blue was joined by Cor van der Beek (drums), Klaasje van der Wal (bass) and Mariska Veres as lead vocalist. In 1969 and 1970, the group set the airwaves crackling and enjoyed a worldwide chart success with ''Venus'' (which incorporated the help of studio musician Cees Schrama of Casey & The Pressure Group [MOVLP1132]), followed by several other hit singles.


    In 1972, they released their 6th album Attila, a solid Pop album written entirely by Van Leeuwen, anchored by Marika's powerful vocals. Her incredible range and control is at times compared with Jefferson Airplane's singer Grace Slick. Noteworthy tracks on Attila are ''Rock In The Sea'', album opener ''Rattler'' and the moody ''Wait''. This album is denitely worth picking up for a comprehensive view on Holland's biggest export product's early '70s output.

    X-Rated Fairy Tales

    Recorded with a fairly straightforward backing band (bassist Mark Duran, synth-player John Carlan, and drummer/keyboardist Bill Roth), Creed's first solo album still turned out to be something touched with the unmistakable mark of Chrome. The production was often murky and strange, effects processing was everywhere, Creed's vocals sounded on the edge of sanity, and, of course, the guitars. Still creating one massive rock surge after another, with feedback piled on top of feedback and, likely enough, more pedals than anyone had ever seen at any one time, Creed showed once again why his guitar-god reputation exists in the first place. That his first solo album continued the true vibe of Chrome where Damon Edge's own use and abuse of the name made him a laughing stock probably wasn't that surprising in the end. Creed himself thought of this album as a more stripped-down, less stony affair, but it's mostly a matter of splitting hairs from an outside perspective. Considering that the title track itself is an acoustic guitar-led acid folk number with appropriate crumbling guitar noises in the background and post-hippie vibes everywhere, one has to wonder what Creed considers to be really stoned music. The most crisp the album gets is with the rhythm section, which often has a good full-bodied punch to it (and if anything sounds a bit like the work of Can, one of Chrome's inspirations). There's a little less stuff about alien takeovers and lurking gods outside the solar system and the like -- there's even a semi-cover of the old Chuck Berry classic Johnny B. Goode -- but then again one almost-dancefloor number is called Sex Voodoo Venus, so go figure. Showdown is also a pretty focused, rhythmic number notable for chunky riffs rather than extended soloing, while the You don't like me/I don't like you lyrics are pretty funny (and maybe about Edge -- and who could blame him?).

    Calling Out

    It wouldn't be entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman's
    latest US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it's not far from the truth.
    Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working
    on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track in the vein of Shoes, Emitt
    Rhodes and Cleaners For Venus, and, in a desire to round out the songs, he
    enlisted bassist Shane O'Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of
    Widowspeak). As it happened, the trio's first chance to play together was an
    audition for the American touring version of Spiritualized (they didn't get the job).
    But, the trio kept meeting and working, turning Ezra recording as a solo artist
    into Ezra, Shane and Michael playing as a band; thus, EZTV was formed.


    With a pool of over 30 demos to work with and Jarvis Taveniere of Woods
    onboard to produce, the band headed to Thump Studios in Greenpoint,
    Brooklyn, to record their debut LP for Captured Tracks. The result is Calling
    Out, a cohesive 12-song statement in the long tradition of fully realized debuts,
    stripped of artifice, but full of hooks and songwriting chops. Tracks like
    first single "The Light," premiering today via The FADER, exhibit what you would
    call the EZTV mantra: presenting songs with only the required embellishments.
    They've got one foot firmly planted in classic American power-pop and college
    rock while the other utilizes more left-of-the-dial sonic experimentation.
    The result is a sound that's both familiar and new, but always about the songs.


    In an era of independent music with a lot more emphasis placed on "story" and
    meaningless twitter feuds, EZTV present a record that speaks for itself. It's an
    LP made for an audience that doesn't want or need any kind of angle or controversy,
    but desires songs that resonate and have a lasting appeal, something
    available here in spades.
