WorkoutDuring his stint with Miles Davis, Hank Mobley's four Blue Note sessions with bandmates Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers are considered his finest and most lyrical work. One listen to Workout, and you'll understand why. This 1961 masterwork also features guitarist Grant Green and drummer Philly Joe Jones, who, along with the tenor saxophonist, weave what can truly be called hard-bop magic. Listeners will be hard-pressed to find a more illustrative example of musical finesse, creativity, and swing.
Part of Analogue Productions' incredible Blue Note reissue series, this pressing claims mastering from the original master tapes and cut at 45RPM by the infallible team of Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, which did the deed at Acoustech. Add in amazingly clean 180g vinyl pressed at RTI, numbered and limited quantities, and gorgeous reproduction of the cover art--itself a classic--and you have a can't-miss jazz classic made even better. And yes, this is the same process and personnel Analogue Productions used on its critically acclaimed Fantasy Jazz reissue series, so you know the quality is top-notch.

In a word association game, the name "Hank Mobley" will often generate "Blue Note" and vice versa. While Mobley had a musical life beyond the Blue Note label including associations with Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis (the 1961 Quintet), it is for his Blue Note recordings that he rightfully most remembered. Mobley led 25 albums for Blue Note and appeared on over 30 others as a sideman. His consistency resulted in all of those recordings being recommended to hard bop collectors.
Mobley's mastery of the style, his attractive tone, and his skill at writing songs that inspire memorable solos made him a perfect representative of the Blue Note sound. Even with his large number of great recordings, Workout is something special and a real standout. Joined by Grant Green, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, Mobley creates brilliant statements on four of his best originals (including the soulful "Uh Huh" and "Greasin' Easy"), "The Best Things In Life Are Free" and "Three Coins In A Fountain." The passion in Mobley's playing is exciting and will surprise many. He takes wild chances that challenge the other all-stars, and he plays with a constant stream of creative ideas. Even collectors who own a dozen other Hank Mobley albums will have to get this version of Workout which, with its superb remastering, has never sounded better.1. Workout

Get Yer YaYa's Out
180 Gram Clear Vinyl
Recorded during their American tour in late 1969, and centered around live versions of material from the Beggars Banquet-Let It Bleed era. Often acclaimed as one of the top live rock albums of all time, its appeal has dimmed a little today. The live versions are reasonably different from the studio ones, but ultimately not as good, a notable exception being the long workout of Midnight Rambler, with extended harmonica solos and the unforgettable section where the pace slows to a bump-and-grind crawl. Some Stones aficionados, in fact, prefer a bootleg from the same tour (Liver Than You'll Ever Be, to which this album was unleashed in response), or their amazing the-show-must-go-on performance in the jaws of hell at Altamont (preserved in the Gimme Shelter film). Fans who are unconcerned with picky comparisons such as these will still find Ya-Ya's an outstanding album, and it's certainly the Stones' best official live recording.

Recorded Live At The Newport Jazz Festival, Newport, Rhode Island, July 3, 1958
This 1958 set by the Dave Brubeck Quartet was recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island, July 3, 1958. It served as a tribute to Duke Ellington, with each band playing a set primarily drawn from Ellington's repertoire. The inspired choice of "Jump for Joy" makes for some of the most magical moments, while "Perdido" provides an extended workout for Desmond and Brubeck. "Liberian Suite Dance No. 3" is actually one movement of Ellington's Liberian Suite, which was premiered in late 1947. Brubeck's "The Duke," an elegant tribute to Ellington that showcases Desmond's lyrical alto and the exciting finale of "C Jam Blues" (the latter spotlighting Morello are also highlights).1.

Legendary rocker and blues statesman Johnny Winter continues to enthrall audiences the world over. With his
unique brand of blues/rock guitar and vocal prowess, Winter's style is truly unmatched in purity and in star power
While he tours non-stop, it's no secret that his live performances are legendary. Fortunately for his huge fan

installment of the chart topping Live Bootleg Series.
For Johnny Winter's Live Bootleg Special Edition, the artist surely becomes his instrument in some incredible
guitar shredding first time released live performances. The blues wielding axeman steps out with super extended
workouts on concert classics like his masterful version of the Freddie King classic Hideaway, blues favorite Ain't That
Just Like A Woman and a stunning rock free for all on the Chuck Berry champion Johnny B. Goode.
Known to write many of his own hit songs, Johnny also dug far back into his archives for two super rare performances for the fans with his classic power blues ballad Stranger and the masterful blues workout on Serious As A Heart Attack.
Always a champion of his favorite bands and artists, Johnny closes out the album with an incredibly rockin'
interpretation tip of the hat to The Rolling Stones with the hard rockin' Jumping Jack Flash.
Friday Music is very honored to be the home of Johnny Winter's Live Bootleg Special Edition. As with our previous releases, these are totally authorized and owned/controlled by Johnny Winter himself. Mastered impeccably by
Joe Reagoso (Johnny Winter/Canned Heat/John Lee Hooker) from the original Johnny Winter tapes at Friday Music
Studios, this album consists of his own personally picked archives and will be a welcome collection to any fan of the
blues and rock sounds of this Grammy Award winning artist and producer.

friend, producer and guitarist Paul Nelson's penned liner notes.

When The Fire Is Dead In The Grate
Two Brand New Exclusive Tracks
700 Limited Edition Copies
Following Wolf People's critically acclaimed 2013 release, Fain, comes this 4-track 12
featuring two of the album's most accomplished songs and two brand new tracks. When the
Fire is Dead in the Grate has quickly been established as a fan-favorite throughout venues
during their European tour. Stewart Lee described the song as ....the album's first stone
classic, a funky folk-metal workout that trails off into a compellingly extended coda, both
guitarists circling and dovetailing and spiraling. A brand new track, Become the Ground,
breaks new ground for the band, being, perhaps, their most obviously folk-influenced song to
date. It's a beautiful duet between lead singer Jack Sharp and guest vocalist Nicola Keary before
the song breaks into a swirling psychedelic jam.
The B-side of the 12" is made up of the first
track fans heard on Fain, All Returns, but now coupled with All Returns Part II, the song's
original extended outro. It's Wolf People at their best, locking into a masterful groove, razor
sharp guitars lines interlocking and intertwining.1. When The Fire Is Dead in the Grate

Something In The Water (Awaiting Repress)Pokey Lafarge and his band bring a focus and energy to the American Roots genre with infectious original material that sits at the crossroads of early jazz, country blues and western swing. With his effortless charisma and distinctive charm, Pokey has crafted a genre all his own--and one that extends well beyond the music alone.
Produced by Jimmy Sutton (best known for his work with JD McPherson), Something in the Water marks a new landmark in Pokey's career. The dozen-song set features a diverse cast of talented players, including Pokey's own longstanding touring combo as well as members of such notable outfits as NRBQ, the Fat Babies, the Modern Sounds, and the Western Elstons. Something in the Water finds Pokey expanding and deepening his musical reach on such new originals as the wry, rollicking title track, the swaggering ragtime workout "Wanna Be Your Man," the infectiously jazzy "Underground," the evocative crooner "Cairo, Illinois," the exotic ballad "Barcelona" and the swinging album-closer "Knocking the Dust off the Rust Belt Tonight," whose witty lyrics underline the album's proudly Midwestern sensibility.1.

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

Kill Bill Vol. 1 SoundtrackFashion be damned: Pop culture is just one big Hometown Buffet for writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Nowhere has that sensibility been more apparent than on his hand-picked soundtrack choices, and this oft tongue-in-cheek tale of a female assassin's revenge (his first film in six years) is no exception. With dizzy, almost palpable glee, Tarantino evokes the international hall-of-mirrors influences that energize martial arts films and much of Asian pop culture in general. Thus the hip-hop of Wu Tang's RZA (who, along with composer Charles Bernstein, concocts what passes for the score's traditional cues) somehow finds itself but one ingredient in a heady souffle that includes vintage TV and film cue rarities (Al Hirt's main title from The Green Hornet, Bernard Herrmann's haunting theme from Twisted Nerve, the spaghetti western melodrama of Luis Bacalov's The Grand Duel, Isaac Hayes in full blaxploitation mode on Run Fay Run), Charlie Feathers' vintage rockabilly and a pan-kitsch sensibility that encompasses Zamfir, Nancy Sinatra's angst-in-the-pants take Bang, Bang and Santa Esmeralda's disco-era workout of Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. Tarantino's contemporary Japan-Pop selections are no less giddy, ranging from Meiko Kaji's sultry Flower of Carnage to The 22.214.171.124's loopy Woo Hoo. It's everything we've come to expect from a Tarantino score (including dialog excerpts and a few sound fx stingers), with a madcap trip around the pop music world thrown in for good measure. -- Jerry McCulley1.

The Avant-Garde (Mono Remaster)Mono Remaster
This album is rightfully co-credited to Don Cherry (trumpet), who ably trades blows with John Coltrane (tenor/soprano sax) throughout. The Avant-Garde also boasts the debut studio recording of Coltrane playing soprano sax -- on The Blessing -- in addition to his continuing advancements on tenor.
Although these tracks were recorded during the summer of 1960, they remained shelved for nearly six years.
Joining Coltrane and Cherry are essentially the rest of the members of the Ornette Coleman Quartet, Ed Blackwell (drums) and Charlie Haden (bass) on Cherryco and The Blessing, as well as Percy Heath (bass) on the remaining three selections. This is fitting, as over half of the album consists of early Coleman compositions. Coltrane's integration into this band works with some extraordinarily fresh results. Neither Cherry nor Coltrane makes any radical departures on this album; however, it's the ability of each to complement the other both in terms of modal style and -- perhaps more importantly -- texture that lends heavily to the success of these sides. Cherry's brisk and somewhat nasal intonations on The Blessing mimic those of Miles Davis, albeit with shorter flourishes and heavily improvised lines. When combined with Coltrane's well-placed -- if not somewhat reserved -- solos, the mutual value of both is dramatically increased. Blackwell -- the only other musician besides Cherry and Coltrane to be featured on every track -- provides some non-conventional percussive accompaniment. His contributions to The Blessing and workout on the aptly titled Focus on Sanity are primal.

Foghat is truly a worldwide gift to rock music and boogie band enthusiasts everywhere. The nucleus of the band (Dave Peverett, Roger Earl, Tone Stevens) was originally from the British blues powerhouse Savoy Brown, and left to form their own trailblazing band in 1972, and rock music and their millions of fans have never been the same since.
In 1978, Foghat was now enjoying the benefits of superstardom after years on the road and having consistently successful radio and chart success. Stone Blue was another huge hit for the band and brought them even further success thanks to multiple amount of smash tracks and stellar blues interpretations that have been considered some of their finest material ever.
Kicking things off with the hard-rockin' Stone Blue, this slide guitar champion truly takes the listener into a classic rock journey complete with all the great twists and turns you would expect from this superstar outfit.
Check out the stunning blues interpretations of Bo Diddley's classic Chevrolet, the perfect reading of Elmore James' It Hurts Me Too, and of course, the Foghat smash version of Robert Johnson's Sweet Home Chicago.
Lonesome Dave Peverett continues his winning streak with a handful of newer fare with the powerful Easy Money, complete with an incredible drum workout by his old Savoy Brown bandmate Roger Earl, locking in step with the stunning lead guitar of Rod Price and the great Craig MacGregor on heavy-duty bass.
These pioneers of the British blues/rock scene carry on with more masterful workouts on hit album tracks like Midnight Madness, High On Love and their inspiring power ballad Stay With Me, making Stone Blue the revered masterpiece that it still is today.
Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the gold & platinum rockers Foghat, therefore we are so excited to announce our first installment in The Foghat /Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with the 40th Anniversary Edition of their legendary masterpiece Stone Blue.
The original Bearsville Records Lp is mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, Deep Purple) and will be manufactured for a limited time on stunning translucent blue audiophile vinyl.
To celebrate four decades of Foghat's Stone Blue, we further enhance this limited anniversary edition with a first time gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as rare gatefold featuring photos from the band's archives, as well as new commentary from co-founder and drummer Roger Earl.

Previously Unreleased Performances from January 28, 1981 at Parnell's Seattle, WA!
Cut at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster!
Just in time for what would have been jazz great Art Pepper's 87th birthday (September 1st) and in cooperation with Art's widow, Laurie Pepper and her label, Widow's Taste Music, Omnivore Recordings is pleased to release the first volume in a series of previously unissued live recordings by Art Pepper called Neon Art.
From his early recordings with Stan Kenton's and Shorty Rogers' bands and sessions with Chet Baker, Henry Mancini or Quincy Jones, to his own recordings like classics made for Contemporary and Galaxy Records (The Art Pepper Quartet and Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section) Art Pepper built a legacy of recordings that can only be described as legendary. Thankfully, he also left us a narrative, tracing the history of his life and the roadmap with details of his great recordings in the shape of the book, Straight Life, which Art and Laurie authored together.
The first volume of Neon Art features two tunes drawn from the unissued performances at Parnell's in Seattle, WA on January 28, 1981. Side one features a workout on Art's composition, "Red Car," while side two features "Blues For Blanche," also a Pepper-composed track. Cut at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster and pressed on red vinyl in a see-through jacket, this first volume is aimed at both the longtime Art Pepper aficionado and collector, and to those just coming to know Art's work. It's an entry point into the multifaceted colorful world of Art Pepper. Download card included.1. Red Car

Kick Out The JamsRanked 294/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Rather than try to capture their legendary on-stage energy in a studio, MC5 opted to record their first album during a live concert at their home base, Detroit's Grande Ballroom, and while some folks who were there have quibbled that Kick Out the Jams isn't the most accurate representation of the band's sound, it's certainly the best of the band's three original albums, and easily beats the many semiauthorized live recordings of MC5 that have emerged in recent years, if only for the clarity of Bruce Botnick's recording.
From Brother J.C. Crawford's rabble-rousing introduction to the final wash on feedback on Starship, Kick Out the Jams is one of the most powerfully energetic live albums ever made; Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith were a lethal combination on tightly interlocked guitars, bassist Michael Davis and drummer Dennis Thompson were as strong a rhythm section as Detroit ever produced, and Rob Tyner's vocals could actually match the soulful firepower of the musicians, no small accomplishment. Even on the relatively subdued numbers (such as the blues workout Motor City Is Burning), the band sound like they're locked in tight and cooking with gas, while the full-blown rockers (pretty much all of side one) are as gloriously thunderous as anything ever committed to tape; this is an album that refuses to be played quietly. For many years, Detroit was considered the High Energy Rock & Roll Capital of the World, and Kick Out the Jams provided all the evidence anyone might need for the city to hold onto the title.

Junk"On the last album, there was too much of me." That's how Anthony
Gonzalez - the sonic auteur behind that most sublime purveyor of
symphonic-indie-electronic-dream pop, M83, describes the primary
inspiration behind his forthcoming album Junk, released on April 8 by Mute.
Highly anticipated, Junk is not just M83's first studio artist album in half
a decade; it's also the follow-up to Hurry Up, We're Dreaming - which
upon release in 2011 put M83 in the direct current of the mainstream. So
why would Gonzalez try to remove himself from its follow-up and supplant
himself with the surprising likes of Beck and Steve Vai. Wait, Steve Vai?
The legendary virtuoso guitar hero who defined an era? On a M83 album in
In trying to "remove" his identifiable musical presence, ironically Gonzalez
may have made one of his most personal efforts yet in Junk and with no
compromise. With Junk, M83 has succeeded in making what Gonzalez
called "an organized mess - a collection of songs that aren't made to live
with each other, yet somehow work together. From album opener "Do It
Try It", a fractured yet catchy mÉlange of old-school house music pianos
and pop-art bubblegum hooks worthy of ABBA, to "Moon Crystal," an
instrumental whose mutant retro-futurist grooves evoke Genesis doing a
prog-disco remix of the Love Boat theme, to the smooth new wave-meets-electro-funk
workout "Time Wind" (featuring vocals by Beck) to "Go!", an
exultant synth-pop charmer featuring vocals from new M83 collaborator
Mai Lan and guitar solo from legendary shredder, Steve Vai, one thing is
perfectly clear: "Every time I make a M83 album, I'm trying to do it on my
own terms - and it's the same for this one," Gonzalez says. "Whatever I do,

Impeccably Mastered By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And At Capitol Mastering
Known for their ability of churning out hit songs, top charting albums and sell-out shows across the globe, The Doobie Brothers continue to be a force in the music business garnering them success now for over four decades.
1975 was a banner year for the band as they took their Bay Area soul and rock driven sounds to a further dimension thanks to the hits on their fifth smash LP Stampede. Produced by Ted Templeman, this platinum event would go on to become one of the most successful albums by The Doobie Brothers as the LP gave them a huge number one single with the Motown classic Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While).
Fronted by the triple lead guitar force of Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons, & newest addition Steely Dan's Jeff "Skunk Baxter. plus Tiran Porter on bass, and the dual drummers John Hartman and the late great Keith Knudsen, The Doobie Brothers continued their trek to the top of the music charts. Stampede went deeper with album radio thanks to more amazing hits like the rockers Sweet Maxine and the tour de force guitar workout on Neal's Fandango.
Friday Music is proud once again to offer another installment in our ever popular Doobie Brothers 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their masterpiece Stampede. Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Doobie Brothers/Michael McDonald/Boz Scaggs) at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering, Stampede sounds incredibly rockin' and soulful as you remember it.1.

ZumaRecorded in 1975, Zuma exudes both a sense of focus and a tentative optimism. Barstool Blues, Don't Cry No Tears, and Drive Back are terse, punchy rockers, while Danger Bird and Cortez the Killer are extended guitar workouts in the grand Crazy Horse tradition. And the two acoustic entries--Pardon My Heart and Through My Sails (the latter was recorded with Crosby, Stills & Nash)--are absolutely gorgeous. Treat yourself to one of Young's most underrated records. -Dan Epstein1. Don't Cry No Tears

The Pretty Things (Discontinued)With sneers on their mugs and hair down to here and a punkier sound than even the Rolling Stones could produce the Pretty Things were the British Invasion outfit that made parents of teenagers think maybe Mick Jagger and the boys weren't so bad after all! Led by the raucous vocals of Phil May and the stinging lead guitar of Dick Taylor, the Pretty Things' first American album was stuffed with powerful workouts like Rosalyn, Honey I Need and Don't Bring Me Down and ranks right up there with anything the Kinks, the Who and the Stones had to offer.1.
