Ryan Adams And The Cardinals III/IV Conceptual Double Album About the 80s, Ninjas, Pizza, Cigarettes, and Sex: What's Not to Love?

As Always, Adams and Company Sound Magical in Analog

Recorded During Sessions for Easy Tiger: Available for the First Time

Ryan Adams might still be "semi-retired" from music, but the songs are still flowing. In 2007, Adams & the Cardinals entered Electric Lady Land Studios on 8th street in NYC and went in for a session intended to last two weeks. Six months and over 60 tracks later, they emerged with the celebrated album Easy Tiger. But it was only glimpse into the depth of the work the band had undertaken and the vast amount of material that was recorded.

As the sessions wound around into the deep winter months, a double album emerged, and it's a doozy: III/IV is a rock record that feels more like a hybrid of all the records that the band had mutually consumed as kids, addressing influences as wide as KISS and The Cars.

Originally hidden away in the vault while the band hit the road to support Easy Tiger, and finally available for the first time in its entirety, III/IV is a double-album concept rock opera about the 80s, ninjas, cigarettes, sex and pizza. What's not to love?

So sit back, drop the needle into the grooves, and enjoy Volume III/IV by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, which features the band's classic lineup of Catherine Popper on bass (her last with the band), Neal Casal on guitar and vocals (his first with the band), Brad Pemberton on drums, Jon Graboff on the Steel Guitar (as well as a few other things), and Jamie Candyman Candiloro on piano and synths.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
