    Celebrating 6 Decades Of Elvis' Country Soul & Gospel Masterwork


    First Time 180-Gram Audiophile White & Silver Swirl Vinyl


    First Time Gatefold Cover Art & 24 x 24 Striking Poster Insert


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios & Capitol Mastering


    Pressed At R.T.I.


    Contains The Huge Hits Crying In The Chapel, I Believe In The Man In The Sky, & Milky White Way


    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!


    As 1960 was coming to a close, Elvis returned to the studios of RCA Nashville and would go on to record his first smash gospel album His Hand In Mine. Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, the amazing album featured a dozen of his most soulful works ever captured on wax like the hit single Crying In The Chapel and more stellar fare such as I Believe In The Man In The Sky, Joshua Fit The Battle and of course the definitive classic title track His Hand In Mine. The Lp soon went on to achieve gold and platinum status and become one of the most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful albums.


    Thanks to his great soulful country workouts on Known Only To Him and the wonderful Milky White Way, this collection of Elvis Presley's gospel hits were just what the fans were yearning for, as the entire album was built around his love for gospel and old-time religious church music.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the first time limited Anniversary Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic His Hand In Mine by Elvis Presley.


    As another groundbreaking installment in our exciting Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, we are pleased to present this masterwork in all its 1960 stereophonic glory.

    Labor Of Love

    Previously Unreleased Late 1990s Recordings



    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings



    Taj Mahal, Loose And Casual In Informal Recording Sessions With Peers



    Taj Performs With Guest Artists: John Dee Holeman, Cool John Ferguson, Cootie Stark And Algia Mae Hinton



    Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing




    The blues live on because the blues give people life, not the other way around. Talk about the blues with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and composer Taj Mahal, or Tim Duffy, founder of the Music Maker Relief Foundation, and you'll quickly understand how deeply they grasp this. So it's no surprise that their shared love of blues has created a special vinyl-only album release that's got the loose, easy feel of a porch-sitting guitar strum, sipping sweet tea on a warm summer day.



    Labor of Love comprises recordings made by Duffy, hanging out with Taj and other artists in a Houston hotel room and during visits to the Music Maker Relief Foundation headquarters in Hillsborough, North Carolina.



    Taj and Tim first connected in the mid-1990s as Tim was establishing the foundation. The foundation is dedicated to preserving Southern roots music by directly supporting senior artists in need while documenting their music and sharing their stage and recording talents with the world.



    A CD collection released by the foundation featuring Music Maker artists caught Taj's attention. Tim invited Taj to his place in rural Pinnacle, N.C., where he hung out with several of the artists. Taj loved how they played and sang, but he especially loved getting to know their lives and how they made things work.



    Not much time passed before a performing tour was launched, with Taj as the headliner. Meanwhile, Tim, sensing an incredibly rich opportunity, was hauling along with the tour, high-end recording gear. He set it up in hotel rooms hoping to capture an impromptu session. One night in Houston, magic happened. A few senior bluesmen, Tim, Taj and the daughter of Katie Mae, immortalized in the Lightin' Hopkins classic Katie Mae Blues hung out together in a hotel room in Houston. Taj picked up an acoustic guitar and started in on classic tunes - Stack-O-Lee, Walking Blues, and more. The tape was rolling.



    During the time of the tour, Taj was also visiting during hang-out, barbecue and recording sessions at Music Maker's new North Carolina headquarters in Hillsborough. When the music got going, Taj would play some piano, bass, harp, banjo, mandolin and whatever else was needed.



    Now is the time for these immortalized sessions to be heard. So here they are on a solid piece of wax. And what wax it is - a full-on 200-gram vinyl Analogue Productions masterpiece plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's best-sounding LPs. Packaged in a Stoughton Printing tip-on gatefold jacket. You won't find a more intimate portrayal of Taj as a freewheeling, fun-loving, always-in-the-pocket sideman.

    Time Out

    Remastered


    'Time Out' is the 1959 album by The Dave Brubeck Quartet, based upon the use of time signatures that were unusual for jazz (mainly waltz or double-waltz time, but also 9/8, and most famously 5/4).
    Although the album was intended as an experiment and received negative reviews by critics upon its release, it became one of the best-known and biggest-selling jazz albums ever! Obviously, timing is everything!


    Just over 50 years after its original release, we present this timeless album on 180 grams audiophile vinyl.

    Waxing Romantic

    "Catchy as hell; it has the mark of someone who knows his way
    around a hook -Stereogum


    "'Promises' might be jarringly summery for the time of year, with
    flourishes of Balearic guitar and bright, chiming piano, but it has an
    easy psychedelic flow that's welcome anytime -NME


    "It sounds like pina coladas and an afternoon spent woozily
    wandering around, slightly tipsy from said cocktails, hand-in-hand
    with a beautiful partner in crime -Noisey


    "Contagious' aptly describes Bretzer's work. Each song's
    instrumentation glows front to back, and never does he close the
    door on his sensibilities. -Consequence of Sound


    Waxing Romantic is the debut album from Canadian artist Travis
    Bretzer. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, 24-year-old Bretzer has an
    appropriately singular, off-beat take on guitar pop.


    On Waxing Romantic, Travis has stepped up the production in a big
    way, graduating from the bedroom to a full studio environment.
    Recorded at Gary's Electric in Brooklyn and produced by Jorge
    Elbrecht (of Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Lansing-Dreiden fame)
    the new environment has allowed for Travis' songs to be taken to new,
    fully-realized heights. The album also features a solid crew of players,
    including members of Haunted Graffiti, James Richardson of MGMT
    and Regal Degal's Josh da Costa, who was key in shaping drum
    arrangements.


    As the title indicates, Waxing Romantic is thematically concerned with
    love. For Travis, the album reads like a storybook of the first couple of
    years of his current relationship, with each song acting like a totem for
    different events and moments. For this reason, the album is very
    personal - it navigates the giddy and elated feelings of falling in love,
    and the process of looking back and reflecting on it. In keeping with
    the album's '70s pop mode, the lyrics are kept simple and sweet, but
    never cloying.


    Lead single "Promises" is built around a breezy, cascading guitar riff
    and oozes a casual temperament. Warm slide guitars and fuzzy
    power-pop riffs color the lofty melodies of "Lonely Heart". Elsewhere,
    "Idle By" recalls the glistening guitar lines of Felt, and "Lady Red"
    shows Travis doing his best scrubbed up, sophisticated pop song.

    25th Anniversary Of Ringo's 10th Album


    Includes The Singles Weight Of The World And Don't Go Where The Road Don't Go


    Featuring Jeff Lynne, Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson, Andrew Gold (Wax), Jeff Baxter (Steely Dan), Mark Hart (Supertramp) & Many Other Guest Appearances


    When The Beatles were formed in 1960, Ringo Starr was a member of another Liverpool group, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. After achieving moderate success with that band, he quit and joined The Beatles in August 1962, replacing Pete Best. Starr played key roles in The Beatles' films and appeared in numerous others. After the break-up in 1970, Ringo Starr released several successful singles including the It Don't Come Easy, Photograph Back Off Boogaloo and You're Sixteen.


    Ringo Starr achieved commercial and critical success with his 1973 album Ringo, which was a top ten release in several countries. He has been featured in a number of documentaries and hosted television shows. Since 1989, he has toured with twelve variations of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band.


    Time Takes Time is the tenth studio album by Ringo Starr, released in 1992, his critically acclaimed comeback album. His first studio album since 1983's Old Wave, it followed a successful 1989-90 world tour with his All-Starr Band. Time Takes Time features several celebrity guests including Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson and Electric Light Orchestra front man Jeff Lynne.


    Many critics considered Time Takes Time Starr's best album since 1973's Ringo. Rolling Stone magazine wrote, The drummer's most consistent, wide-awake album since Ringo, from 1973.


    Hot on the heels of the release of Ringo's latest album Give More Love, 2017 also marks the 25th anniversary of Time Takes Time. The album is now finally available again on vinyl.

    Persistence Of Time

    In 1990, while making Persistence of Time, the members of Anthrax looked up from their comic books, quit joking around, and realized they were going to die someday. But unlike its Big Four brethren (Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth), the Fourth Horseband of the Thrashpocalypse didn't celebrate the coming of the grim reaper. The aptly named Persistence of Time opens with the ticking of a clock and unleashes heart-pounding waves of existential dread, stylistic evolution, and white-hot anger at death itself.


    Cut at Mobile Fidelity by engineer Krieg Wunderlich and afforded requisite groove space for the first time ever on a proper 2LP pressing that accommodates the band's longer songs, Anthrax's 1990 magnum opus sounds as genuine, forceful, and uncompromising as the songs' urgent lyrics and thematic struggles. Serious and complex, this definitive analog pressing of Persistence of Time-known by fans as POT-presents the vital music as a furious blend of dynamic speed and three-dimensional heaviness.


    Seething anthems like Keep it in the Family and In My World give way to straight-ahead headbangers like H8 Red and a rapid-paced cover of Joe Jackson's Got the Time. Guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Spitz converse with mosquito whines and monster-truck thunder. Intro to Reality forms a prog-inspired cocoon with harmonizing twin guitars and contemplative resonance until Frank Bello's thundering bass hacks its way out and leads straight into the bare-knuckle Belly of the Beast." Throughout, Charlie Benante's virtuosic drumming accelerates and slows the crashing pulse of Anthrax's last album until 2011 to feature Joey Belladonna's riotous vocals.


    The band's darkest affair, Persistence of Time shakes its fist at mortality, snarls at wasted life, and pits burgeoning maturity against livid, riff-driven metal. Tackling more grown-up motifs, extended arrangements, and slower time signatures than on albums past, the group manages to preserve its youthful energy while expanding beyond the borders of thrash.


    Persistence of Time is timeless.

    Good Times Ahead

    After years of cultivating songs, mixes and remixes, and overall vibes for festivals and tours, Matt Toth and Julio Mejia - better known as GTA (short for GOOD TIMES AHEAD) - will release their full length debut Good Times Ahead via Warner Brothers.


    Featuring Tinashe, Vince Staples, Tungi Ige, Iamsu, Wax Motif, What So Not and more, the long-waited debut is a testament to their multiple influences and highlights their eclectic production ear.


    For the last few years we've been feeling like things have been getting repetitive. We've always had goals of ascending beyond the festival bangers we're known for, so around a year ago we set out to create a body of work that reflected our depth and growth as producers, they explained to The FADER.


    We've always had bigger aspirations than just the dance space which came hand in hand with our 'Death To Genres' mentality. To us, music was more about what made you move rather than what type of music was playing. With this album we're able to explore all facets of music that we love, flip the script and bring everything together into one fluid album that we're really proud of.

Although they had known each other since their youth, and on many occasions were featured on the same bill, the Duke and the Count never crossed paths in a recording studio before the 1961 session included here. While their bands performed separately on the same stage many times following the 1961 session, they would never record together again. Wax Time.

    Limited Direct Metal Mastered 180 gram vinyl LP pressing of this classic album. Wax Time.


    Moanin' includes some of the greatest music Blakey produced in the studio with arguably his very best band. There are three tracks that are immortal and will always stand the test of time. The title selection is a pure tuneful melody stewed in a bluesy shuffle penned by pianist Bobby Timmons, while tenor saxophonist Benny Golson's classy, slowed Along Came Betty and the static, militaristic Blues March will always have a home in the repertoire of every student or professional jazz band.

    Brilliant Corners

    Import


    Two superb piano trio albums of covers had set the stage for Monk the composer to re-emerge with horns, and the pianist responded with BRILLIANT CORNERS, one of his greatest recordings, featuring three classic new tunes and two formidable studio bands. The Sonny Rollins featured on BRILLIANT CORNERS is a far more imposing presence than the young acolyte of previous Monk sessions--just witness the title tune. With its multiple themes, quirky intervallic leaps, idiomatic rhythmic changes and tricky transitions in tempo, it is one of Monk's masterpieces--a miniature symphony. So daunting were its technical challenges, that the final ending was edited on from another take. Rollins begins his solo with swaggering composure, boldly paraphrasing Monk's vinegary intervals and trademark trills, before navigating the swift rapids of the double-time chorus with deft syncopations. Monk plies dissonance upon dissonance in his first chorus, playing rhythmic tag with Max Roach on the out chorus. Ernie Henry's slip-sliding bluesiness is followed by a brilliant rhythmic edifice from Roach, who maintains melodic coherence at a drowsy tempo, then explodes into the final chorus.Elsewhere, Ba-Lue Bolivar Ba-Lues-Are is a soulful, easygoing blues, and Monk's solo is a compendium of pithy rhythmic devices, bent notes and calculated melodic abstractions, played with enormous relaxation and swing. He concludes with heckling big-band figures that form the basis for Rollins' expressive rhythmic testimonies. Monk employs the bell-like timbre of a celeste to stunning effect on Pannonica, one of his loveliest melodies and improvisations. And in closing, Bemsha Swing is a hard-swinging, conversational performance, with fine contributions from trumpeter Clark Terry, bassist Paul Chambers and Roach on drums and timpani.

    Mulligan Meets Monk

    Three decades ago, when Riverside paired Thelonious Monk and Gerry Mulligan on this album, it seemed a daring move. These two appeared to represent opposite ends of the jazz spectrum, separated by geography (East Coast and West) as much as by style (bop vs. cool). Actually, it was a rather safe project: producer Orrin Keepnews had learned that the two men were friends; even more importantly, it is now clear that both were the kind of revolutionaries who had substantial (and not dissimilar) respect for jazz tradition. The album was, as advertised, a meeting of giants, but its most lasting value may be as proof that there was a strong bond connecting theoretically opposing forms of early modern jazz.

    The superb November 1960 session recorded by the Ben Webster Johnny Hodges sextet in studio conditions at the Jazz Cellar, in San Francisco without an audience. The two great saxophonists were the only horn players heard at the session. They were backed by a rhythm section of piano, guitar, bass and drums. These recordings are exceptional in that no other date exists in their collaborative featuring them as the only horns.
