Abbey Lincoln--Straight Ahead'
Straight Ahead (Pure Pleasure)This is one of Abbey Lincoln's greatest recordings. It is a testament to the credibility of her very honest music (and her talents) that Lincoln's sidemen on this date include the immortal tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins who takes a memorable solo on Blue Monk), Eric Dolphy on flute and alto, trumpeter Booker Little (whose melancholy tone is very important in the ensembles), pianist Mal Waldron , and drummer Max Roach. Highpoints include When Malindy Sings, Blue Monk, Billie Holiday's Left Alone, and African Lady.
Abbey Lincoln and Max Roach were married in 1962, an association that lasted until 1970. They worked together for a while but Lincoln (who found it harder to get work in jazz due to the political nature of some of her music) became involved in acting and did not record as a leader during 1962-1972. She finally recorded for Inner City in 1973 and gradually became more active in jazz. Her two Billie Holiday tribute albums for Enja (1987) showed listeners that the singer was still in her prime and she has recorded several excellent sets for Verve in the 1990s. Because she puts so much thought into each of her recordings, it is not an understatement to say that every Abbey Lincoln set is well worth owning.

About Pure Pleasure
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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. Straight Ahead

Abbey RoadRanked 14/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Pressed on 180 gram Vinyl
Sourced from the original master tapes
Cut at the legendary Abbey Road Studios!
Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, sourced from the original master tapes, and cut at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, your collection needs this Beatles classic. The last studio album from the group at a time when the group barely was one, amazingly this album is widely regarded as the best they ever made--a true tribute to the purity of the music.
To produce this vinyl, a team of gifted producers and engineers came together for four long years to mix and master on state of the art equipment. Like a science experiment, they theorized, tried, and tested extensively before copying the master tapes to digital 24 bit/192kHz resolution, never once touching the original songs but carefully removing clicks, pops, and poor edits; one last polish on what Rolling Stone Magazine considers the 14th out of 500 best albums of all time.Come Together

Miles AheadMiles Davis' 1957 Columbia Records release Miles Ahead finds the jazz legend renewing his creative partnership with arranger Gil Evans which began in 1949 with the Birth of the Cool. Featuring a 19-piece band assembled by Evans and supple arrangements highlighting Davis as the central voice, the evocative 10-song set is anchored by a passionate take on John Carisi's Springsville, the Iberian shadings of Delibes' The Maids of Cadiz and the excellent Blues for Pablo, which foreshadowed the directions Evans and Davis would go on the subsequent masterpiece Sketches of Spain.1.

Fire AheadAn Indie-Rock band from San Luis Obispo, California, Lakes formed in 2005. After years of being close friends and playing in different bands, Matt
Covington, Jeremy Wells, Jacob Wick, and Seth Roberts became Lakes. After releasing an EP, a full length, and doing multiple tours, Lakes went into the
studio to work on their most definitive album yet. The songs reflect the years of friendship, the low and high points of life they have shared together, as
well as the lessons and beauty seen through it all. There are no gimmicks with Lakes, no eyeliner, no frills, just honest songs about this thing we all have
in common, life.1. Fire Ahead A.

Men Opening Umbrellas AheadWhen The Bonzo Dog Band went their separate ways in 1972 co-frontman Vivian Stanshall was enticed to sign with Warner Bros. Recorded at The Manor, Trident and Apple Studios with ex-Bonzos Neil Innes and 'Bubs' White, and the top Traffic line-up of Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Ric Grech, Gaspar Lawal and Rebop Kwaku Baah, Men Opening Umbrellas Ahead was finally delivered in April of 1974.

Miles Ahead (Soundtrack)The release of the movie MILES AHEAD, Don Cheadle's wildly entertaining and moving exploration of Miles Davis, will be accompanied by this new soundtrack featuring musical highlights from Miles' career and new recordings overseen by Grammy Award-winning jazz/hip-hop artist Robert Glasper.
This is a perfect primer on Davis' career for the new fan and a brilliant audio keepsake of the film for those who've studied his works inside and out. The album features 11 tracks from across Miles' catalogue from 1956 to 1981, select dialogue from the film featuring Cheadle in character, and five original compositions written, co-written, produced or performed exclusively for MILES AHEAD by Robert Glasper. These cues include "What's Wrong with That?" a jam that closes the movie imagining Cheadle as Miles playing in the present day with guest performers Glasper, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Gary Clark, Jr. and Esperanza Spalding; plus "Gone 2015," an end-credits song featuring guest verses from rapper Pharoahe Monch. Cheadle also pens new liner notes for the album discussing the selection and creation of the songs on the soundtrack.LP 1

Good Times AheadAfter 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.1. True Romance (feat.

Gregorian ChantFather Godehard Joppich leads the Benedictine Abbey for this recording of Gregorian Chants.
The present recording of Gregorian chants is an attempt to make use of the most up-to-date research into the chant in interpretation. We should like to be able to present the melodies in their original flexible rhythms. This intention can only be satisfactorily realized when authenticity of expression is allied to a revised musical text. It was therefore found necessary to re-examine the melodies as published in the Editio Vaticana. Indeed the Second Vatican Council encouraged us in this aim by recommending that Gregorian chant should continue to be of primary importance in the liturgy, while the chant-books already available should be critically revised. - from liner notes by Father Godehard JoppichSide A:
