    One is the debut jazz solo album by jazz musician Bob James released in 1974. It was an important album in the early smooth jazz genre and is famous for its end track, Nautilus, which became culturally important to hip hop as one of the most often sampled tracks in American music.

    Rides Again (Pre-Order) (On Sale)


    The Joe Walsh-Led James Gang Balances Edgy Hard Rock and Sincere Country-Tinged Ballads on 1970 Classic: Rides Again Features the Radio Favorite Funk #49 and Multi-Part Bomber


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Pressed at RTI, and Strictly Limited to 4000 Numbered Copies: Mobile Fidelity 180g Vinyl LP of Rides Again Presents James Gang in Full-Scale Detail


    Led by future Eagle Joe Walsh, the James Gang establishes a power-trio template for all times on its 1970 sophomore album. Home to the top-down favorite Funk #49, Rides Again sparks with a stylistic versatility, hard-rocking edge, and balladic vulnerability united by tight-knit musicianship. The quartet's penchant for crunch-laden boogies and focused jamming pours out on the first half of the record before the band pulls its trick bag out on the second half and injects keyboards into the stylistically varied mix. From start to finish, Rides Again is a 70s rock classic - and, now, one that at last features first-rate sonics to match the music.


    Recorded at the then-brand-new Record Plant, the songs sound more authoritative and fun than ever before on Mobile Fidelity's restored analog pressing. Mastered from the original analog tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 4000 numbered copies, this 180g LP teems with involving textures, details, and depth hidden from view on prior pressings. The dimensional body and weight of the guitars, probing low-end of Dale Peters' bass lines, reedy timbre of Walsh's singing, and pacing of the crisp percussive cues are all enhanced. Increased separation between the instruments and airier, more open soundstaging add to the record's toe-tapping fun and seemingly unlimited groove quotient.


    Walsh, without question, remains the biggest draw on Rides Again. The FM radio staple Funk #49 - kick-started by the irresistible declaration I sleep all day, out all night/I know where you're goin' - continues to be identified by many as a Walsh solo tune. Yet it, as well as the sexual thrust of the head-bobbing Woman and proto-metal slash of the multi-part The Bomber, fully represents the pure chemistry and locomotive momentum of the James Gang. With Walsh's Echoplex-equipped slide guitar making psychedelic- and blues-leaning comments, his mates pick up on the direction and answer with melodic responses.


    Throughout the record, the trio's synergy clicks at every turn. Such interplay extends to the more diverse, country-tinged fare on Side B. Streaked with throaty organ passages and reflective moods, sincere midtempo ballads like Tend My Garden tease with rave-up structures and express a softer side of the group. Similarly, the acoustic-based Garden Gate and Jack Nitzsche-orchestrated Ashes the Rain and I showcase sincerity and diversity suggesting the James Gang prepared to defy limitations afforded most of its peers.


    Yet Walsh's departure in 1971 changed the group's fortunes - and, by extension, upped the value of Rides Again, which survives as a near-flawless example of earnest 70s rock and organic playing.

    Givin' It Back

    Givin' It Back is the ninth album released by The Isley Brothers on their T-Neck imprint in 1971. After years of having white Rock acts covering their most famed material, particularly, Shout and Twist And Shout, the Isleys decided to do the same to music made famous by white artists such as Stephen Stills, Eric Burdon and Neil Young.


    Among the songs they covered were Spill The Wine, Love The One You're With, the social commentary medley of Ohio and Machine Gun (from Jimi Hendrix), Fire And Rain by James Taylor and Bob Dylan's Lay Lady Lay. The Isleys' perseverance paid off when their covers of Love The One You're With, Lay Lady Lay and Spill The Wine became charted hits. Bill Withers plays guitar on the Isleys' version of his Cold Bologna.

    PVC Protective Sleeve


    Includes 4-Page Booklet


    Based On The Based On The Best Selling Book By James Bowen (2.5m Copies Sold In Germany And 1m In The Uk)


    Music By Noah & The Whale's Charlie Fink And David Hirschfelder (Elizabeth)


    First Pressing Of 500 Numbered Copies On Bob Coloured Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter


    Homeless and a recovering drug addict, James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) is running low on his luck and finds a ginger cat at his home. From that point onwards, the two lives become entwined.


    Roger Spottiswoode's English feature is based on the bestselling novel A Street Cat Named Bob.


    After their story was published in a local newspaper, Bowen was offered a book deal in 2010 and has since published six bestsellers detailing his life and travels with his ginger cat.


    Bob has also become something of a celebrity in his own right, receiving the most fan mail of any Hachette author and boasting 72,000 followers on Twitter. They cast multiple cats to play Bob but in the end, Bob played himself for most of the film.


    Charlie Fink has written six original songs especially for the film, all of which feature on this soundtrack. He is a British singer-songwriter, producer and filmmaker and is best known for fronting the indie band Noah and the Whale.


    The songs have prominent placement in the film and are sung on screen at key moments in the story by the main protagonist James, busking on the streets of London.


    David Hirschfelder is recognized globally as one of Australia's most distinguished screen-composers, having garnered Oscar nominations for Scott Hicks' Shine and Shekhar Kapur's Elizabeth. He is also the winner of two BAFTA (British Academy) awards for Strictly Ballroom and Elizabeth. David's recent film-scores include Craig Monahan's Healing which is nominated for APRA and FCCA Awards.

    Rit

    From one of his first sessions at 16 with the Mamas and Papas to accompanying Lena Horne and Tony Bennett at 18, Lee Ritenour's forty year career is highlighted by a Grammy Award win for his 1986 collaboration with Dave Grusin, Harlequin; 17 Grammy nominations; numerous #1 spots in guitar polls and the prestigious Alumnus of the Year award from USC.


    Growing up in L.A. in the 60's, Grammy award winning guitarist Lee Ritenour has recorded over 40 albums, with 35 chart songs, notably the Top 15 hit Is It You, which has become a contemporary jazz radio classic. In the 90s, Ritenour was a founding member of Fourplay, the most successful band in contemporary jazz, with keyboardist Bob James, bassist Nathan East and drummer Harvey Mason.


    Rit is his 1981 album, recorded with a number of industry greats, including Weather Report's Alex Acuna, Bill Champlin (of '70s San Francisco Rock group The Sons Of Champlin, as well as Chicago), drummer Harvey Mason and Toto rhythm master Jeff Porcaro.

    Full Tide (Pure Pleasure)

    As an album, Full Tide most closely resembles Shine in its breadth and depth. It's not the shiny production as much as the material itself. Recorded in Ireland and Australia, the album contains some stellar, perhaps career-defining performances of a number of tunes: her readings of Bob Dylan's Lay Down Your Weary Tune and To Make You Feel My Love completely reinvent them. The emotion in her voice is a warm fire for the battered soul to rest in. As moving and convincing as these performances are, they are not the true gems in the body of this album. In fact, her version of Sandy Denny's Full Moon, with a pianist, a bassist, and a string quartet, blows them away. Her voice, full and dark, yearns across time and space for the absent one. It's an elegy to a love, but also to love itself and friendship as well. This is key in that there are a total of four songs here by the late Noel Brazil - Black's longtime collaborator and favorite songwriter - who passed away in 2001.

    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.

    I'm Not There (Bob Dylan)

    I'm Not There is a meta-biographical film re-imaging the life of Bob Dylan as portrayed by six different actors - Marcus Carl Franklin, Ben Whishaw, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere, and Cate Blanchett - in six different phases of the artists life and career.


    The 4LP I'm Not There set features songs from and inspired by this film. The new interpretations of Bob Dylan songs are performed by an eclectic cavalcade of acclaimed and celebrated contemporary musicians including Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Sonic Youth, Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Jack Johnson, Sufjan Stevens, Mark Lanegan and many others!


    Many of the album's performances include backing from The Million Dollar Bashers, an ensemble created especially for 'Im Not There' by Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo, featuring Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, Television guitarist Tom Verlaine, Wilco bassist Nels Cline, guitarist Smokey Hormel, keyboardist John Medeski and long-time Bob Dylan band bassist Tony Garnier. Other tracks on the album feature the alternative-country band Calexico backing up artists.


    I'm Not There includes two versions of the enigmatic title track, a new interpretation performed by Sonic Youth and the original Bob Dylan recording, a rare often-bootlegged outtake from The Basement Tapes sessions which has been unavailable on any official release for a long time.

    Raising Hell

    Following the success of King Of Rock, Raising Hell (1986) raised more than just a massive revenue stream by selling over three million albums worldwide. It's a well known fact that the record, produced by Rock/ Hip Hop production pioneer Rick Rubin, raised the bar for Hip Hop albums in general. Musically it indeed raises hell, being crammed to the brim with hard-hitting hooks, loops, samples, scratches, inventive tong-twisting braggadocio and catchy choruses. Too many classics on this one: Peter Piper with the massive Bob James bell drum sample It's Tricky (putting The Knack's My Sharona sample to extremely good use) and the song that popularized a certain brand of shoes in the Hip Hop community, My Adidas.


    However the album's flag bearer is undoubtedly Walk This Way which literally rendered Aerosmith's original version obsolete. Viewing from an eighties Hip Hop perspective, the collaboration with Aerosmith seemed rather unusual to say the least, but at the same time it proved that Hip Hop and Rock are merely next door neighbours. The album's timeless quality surfaces in its ability to bring together masses of fans of both genres.

    Wild Horses Rock Steady

    Johnny Hammond's 1972 soul-jazz beauty is another stunning example of great creativity at Creed Taylor's Kudu label through the mid-'70s. Arranged by Bob James, Hammond's trademark B-3 work is showcased here on six extended cover versions of tunes from the pop vernacular. The lineup includes guitarists George Benson, Eric Gale, and Melvin Sparks, saxophonists Grover Washington, Jr. and Pepper Adams, bassist Ron Carter (playing electric as well as double bass), and drummers Bernard Purdie and Billy Cobham! There are grooves galore in this wondrously mixed set, from the smoking guitar breaks in the read of Aretha Franklin's Rock Steady to the syncopated organ pyrotechnics in It's Impossible, with Washington playing his ass off around Hammond's organ breaks, and the beautiful horn arrangements by James in Peace Train. The funky-butt glimmer in I Don't Know How to Love Him could have been played by the Stax/Volt horns with a Funk Brothers rhythm section. James weaves a string section in harmonic counterpoint to Hammond's organ in the melody, creating a moving tapestry of textures against the backbeat. But nothing can prepare the listener for the closing cover of Jagger and Richard's Wild Horses, with a military snare beat providing an unlikely intro to an All Along the Watchtower-like progression that transforms itself seamlessly into a darkly minor reading of the original melody, with beautiful fills by Benson and Sparks. When the horns kick in during the refrain with plenty of fuzz guitar and bass over the top, the listener falls headlong into the magic of dirty groove and roll.

    Afro Classic (Speakers Corner)

    In the Seventies, fusion was a popular pigeonhole for music somewhere between jazz and pop. At the same time it was also an often used, belittling term employed by critics and representatives of 'pure' jazz, who never wanted to listen to it, let alone include any of the numerous LPs in their collection.



    Forty years later, the dust has settled. Flautist Hubert Laws' recordings not only for the Atlantic but also the CTI labels are treasured - especially the present LP, which was produced by the 'Master of Sound' Creed Taylor. Now these crossover numbers from the worlds of classic, jazz, pop and easy listening are available once more. Discover, for example, Al Kooper's composition Fire And Rain (more familiar are the versions from Blood, Sweat & Tears and James Taylor), the famous theme music from the film Love Story, and three classical compositions by J. S. Bach and Mozart. All have been given a facelift and with such super sidemen ranging from Ron Carter to Bob James and a superb Freddie Waits on the drums, they are a real treat.
    So cast aside any preconceptions and enjoy this meticulous production and the clear reproduction on vinyl.

    • Hubert Laws (flute)

    • Don Sebesky (arranger)

    • Fred Alston, Jr. (bassoon)

    Phoebe Snow (Awaiting Repress)

    Its not very often to witness the importance of a new artist when their debut album gets released. From time to time, these initial works will become as legendary as their lifetime careers are. The great Phoebe Snow and her self-titled debut album is undoubtedly an example of this rare phenomenon. Filled with nine extraordinary songs, seven of those written by a then 23-year-old Snow, including the smash hit single Poetry Man, truly became the catalyst for a legendary career.

    All of the radio formats fell in love with Snow and her new album. Additional album tracks like the hipster uptown blues number Harpo Blues, which features the jazz great Teddy Wilson on piano, and the equally solid and soulful I Dont Want The Night To End helped cement the album as a unequivocal classic.


    From this debut release, Snow also proved that she was a fine collaborator as heard on tracks like No Show Tonight with Traffics Dave Mason, Either Or Both with David Bromberg, and It Must Be Sunday with jazz superstars Bob James and Zoot Sims. These collaborative efforts paid off as she soon became the toast of the industry with a bevy of invitations to perform duets and guest vocals with the likes of Paul Simon, Donald Fagen, Dave Grusin, Linda Rondstat, Bonnie Raitt, Michael McDonald and many others.

    ReLoad

    Metallica's seventh album and counterpart to the band's quadruple platinum 1996 release Load. Produced by Bob Rock with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. Fuel was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance while Better Than You won for Best Metal Performance. The original idea was to make Metallica's sixth album a double album. However, with problems recording so many songs at one time, the band decided that half of the songs were to be released and the band would continue to work on the remaining songs and release them the following year. Speaking about the recording sessions in an interview for Guitar World, guitarist Kirk Hammet stated that We were gonna do them both as a double album, but we didn't want to spend that long in the studio. Also, if we did a double album, it would have been a lot more material for people to digest, and some of it might have gotten lost in the shuffle.

    Another Life

    James Maddock affirms his status as a fixture in downtown Manhattan's folk and Americana scene with his album 'Another Life.' As NPR says of the British transplant, "his timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and lovely intimacy."


    Nodding to '70s rock with shimmering acoustic guitars, an understated rhythm section and flourishes of fiddle, mandolin, piano and dobro, 'Another Life' bridges the mainstream appeal of songwriters like Jesse Harris and Norah Jones and the quirkier sensibility of Loudon Wainwright. With funding entirely from fan contributions through PledgeMusic, Maddock worked with producer Matt Pierson, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell (who's played with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm) and bassist Tony Scherr (who plays with Norah Jones).


    The 13 songs on 'Another Life' paint a portrait of a man reaching the midpoint of his life, a natural progression from themes in Maddock's earlier releases. He's looking back on roads not taken, and isn't always sure he chose the right one. On the title track, Maddock wants an extra 50 years to try "acting, white-water rafting," "some illegal substances," even having a kid or three. "I've Been There Too," built around an indelible guitar riff, shows Maddock's knack for instrumental hooks as well as lyrical ones. "Don't Go Lonely," in a well-timed moment of levity, hints at reggae with dub bass, bubbling organ and the chorus's entreaty to "go get high, go get found, go crazy on this town / don't go lonely."


    After fronting the Columbia Records band Wood, whose debut 'Songs From Stamford Hill' was featured prominently on TV shows such as "Dawson's Creek," Maddock moved from England to New York City in 2003. His 2009 album 'Sunrise On Avenue C' won a New York Music Award for Best Americana Album, while follow-up 'Wake Up And Dream' ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV's (NYC) Listener Poll. He's performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and is a resident artist at Rockwood Music Hall. According to radio legend Vin Scelsa, Maddock's heartbreakingly beautiful and exquisitely crafted music touches the soul.

    Gerry Mulligan & Chet Baker: Carnegie Hall Concert (Speakers Corner)

    The third encounter of the cool, swinging art of Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker took place in New York's Carnegie Hall on a cold November day in 1974. So-called Cool Jazz had long since arrived and become popular on the East Coast with the result that the concert hall must have been filled to the last seat. The two hadn't performed together on stage for ten years, rivalry and who knows what else had put an end to the highly successful pianoless quartet.



    In spite of the enormously high expectations - the Carnegie Hall fills all musicians with awe due to the echoes of concerts given by such classical and jazz great as Artur Rubinstein, George Gershwin and their successors over many generations - every melody is wonderfully relaxed from the very first note on. This is surely due to the excellent rhythm group (with piano!). This is made up of musicians from the 'new generation' - musicians who were sucking on dummies in their prams when the two veterans came together for the first time in 1952.
    Oldies such as Bernie's Tune, My Funny Valentine and Line For Lyons, and new compositions like Song For Strayhorn and Song For An Unfinished Woman constitute a successful blend both for the two performers on stage and the audience alike. And there is no experimenting - no one wants to play or hear that - however the high level of communication is tangible everywhere.



    It makes sense to release the two individual LPs as a double album. What's more: the cover photo is exactly the same for both releases and you get almost 80 minutes of West Coast cool-hot jazz at its very best!



    Musicians:



    • Gerry Mulligan (bassoon)

    • Chet Baker (trumpet)

    • Ed Byrne (trombone)

    • Bob James (piano, electric piano)

    • John Scofield (guitar)

    • Dave Samuels (vibraphone)

    • Ron Carter (bass)

    • Harvey Mason (drums)




    Recording: November 1974 at Carnegie Hall, New York, by Dave Hewitt and John Venable

    Production: Creed Taylor





    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.

    The Bluebird Recordings 1939-1942

    Though Mississippi Delta blues guitarist and singer Tommy McClennan was only active for a brief three years, he left a powerful legacy on the world of blues and beyond, influencing the likes of John Fahey and Elmore James, with tracks being covered by everyone from Bob Dylan to Albert King, and Moon Mullican. Cutting sides for Bluebird between 1939-1942, McClennan's rough, slightly unhinged style made him one of the more unique voices in the Delta and he was the first to record the classic "Cross Cut Saw Blues" along with the well known "Shake 'Em On Down", "Bottle It Up And Go", and dozens more. Doxy is pleased to present his complete recordings here in deluxe 3LP box set.

    Truth Serum

    Before 2011's 'King of In Between' Garland Jeffreys went thirteen years without releasing any new music. Since that album, which top critics like Ann Powers, Robert Christgau and Ken Tucker hailed as among the best of his career, Jeffreys has performed on Letterman, toured the US and Europe extensively, and written over 50 new songs, some of which will appear on his new album 'Truth Serum,' a stripped down, politically charged cri de coeur to be released September 17 on Luna Park Records with marketing services and distribution through Thirty Tigers. A full national tour will follow, kicking off September 23 at Rockwood2 in NYC, and including performances at McCabe's in Santa Monica, Old Town School of Folk in Chicago and more.


    'Truth Serum' was produced by Jeffreys with production support by James Maddock and Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm), with backing from some of NYC's top session musicians: Steve Jordan (drums), Zev Katz (bass), Duke Levine (guitar) and Brian Mitchell (keys). Impressionistic and brimming with urgency, the album's ten songs grew out of material culled from over 75 unlabeled, cassette tapes - Jeffreys' preferred platform for capturing inspiration. "The obsessions, the imagery, the things I care most about were all on those cassettes," he says. "I love their compression and ragged feel."


    Though Jeffreys has been releasing music since the 1960s, and recently celebrated his 70th birthday, he has never been busier or more prolific. "This record is a kind of Rorschach of me, the boiled down essence of where I am today," he explains. "I'm secretly longing for brotherhood, harmony, justice, and discouraged by how rarely that happens in the world."

    Legend Remixed

    For the first time, Bob Marley and the Wailers' iconic 1984 album, Legend, is re-imagined for Legend Remixed, an inspired new spin on the reggae classic to celebrate the summer. Legend's 16 tracks have been remixed by top DJs/producers. Included in this the cohesive new set are tracks by ten time Grammy winner Stephen Marley, Pretty Lights, Thievery Corporation, Jason Bentley, Z-Trip with Lee Scratch Perry, Photek, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Roni Size, RAC, Beats Antique, Nickodemus & Zeb, as well as a new rendition remix of Redemption Song by five-time Grammy Award winning reggae artist, Ziggy Marley.


    The fourth track on the album, Three Little Birds, was remixed by Stephen Marley and DJ/producer Jason Bentley. This iconic Marley track serves as the worry-free anthem for Hyundai's new Assurance Connected Care program, a new suite of features that allows drivers to feel safe and secure and enjoy a stress-free ownership experience. Prior to its television debut, Three Little Birds made its television debut on May 14 with free downloads available to the first 15,000 fans through Hyundai's Facebook and YouTube channels and is also available for sale through all digital retailers.


    Hyundai also supported the creation of the Making of Legend Remixed documentary, a short film about the creation of the new album including interviews with the Marley family and the musicians and remixers involved.


    Bob Marley and The Wailers' Legend is the world's best-selling reggae album with global sales exceeding 40 million copies, including more than 14 million in the U.S. alone. The RIAA Diamond®-certified album holds the distinction of being the second longest-charting album in the history of Billboard magazine, second only to Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The Moon. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked LEGEND at No. 46 on its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.


    Bob Marley remains one of the 20th century's most important and influential entertainment icons. Marley's lifestyle and music continue to inspire new generations as his legacy lives on through his music. In the digital era, he has the second-highest social media following of any posthumous celebrity, with the official Bob Marley Facebook page drawing more than 42 million fans, ranking it among the Top 25 of all Facebook pages and Top 10 among celebrity pages. Since 1992, Marley's music catalog has sold more than 77 million albums worldwide and his accolades include inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1994) and ASCAP Songwriters Hall of Fame (2010), a GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award (2001), multiple entries in the GRAMMY® Hall Of Fame, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (2001).

    Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of
    modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal prowess and of course
    his stellar list of classic Chicago and Mississippi Delta blues tunes have all gone on to influence
    generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.


    With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began working in the late
    seventies with one of his biggest fans Johnny Winter, cutting his final four albums for Blue Sky
    Records, earning both the artist and producer both Grammy Awards for several of them including
    the live masterpiece Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live. Recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival,
    Muddy drove the crowd into a frenzy with his famous guitar licks and his Delta growl, truly a
    thrilling presence on the stage.


    Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary late great Johnny Winter on guitar,
    James Cotton on harp and the masterful Pinetop Perkins on piano, Muddy "Mississippi" Waters
    Live would go on to become one of the most revered live albums in modern day Chicago blues
    history.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits Mannish Boy, Muddy continues to rock the
    crowd through a treasure trove of 6 more blues champions which made this one of the most
    important live recordings of all time. The album features classic gems like his classics She's
    Nineteen Years Old, Baby Please Don't Go, and Nine Below Zero. Noted for introducing his
    Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, Muddy "Mississippi"
    Waters Live is just another example of how important this late blues master's music was and still
    is to millions of fans across the globe.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary arsenal of fine recordings of Muddy
    Waters. That is why we are so very proud to announce another installment in The Muddy
    Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary masterpiece Muddy

    Zip-A-Dee Doo Dah

    One of the most talented acts in Phil Spector's stellar recording stable, Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans featured the great Darlene Love, one of Spector's favorite vocal muses; Fanita James, who also sang alongside Love in the ubiquitous studio vocal group the Blossoms; and Bob B. Soxx himself, aka renowned singer Bobby Sheen, a legend in West Coast R&B circles. The trio's uncanny abilities provided Spector with an ideal vehicle to perfect his musical formula, making the trio's 1963 album Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah one of the most enchanting items in the Philles label catalog.


    Recorded in the hallowed environs of L.A.'s Gold Star Studios with backup from the legendary Wrecking Crew, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah finds the trio cutting loose on a high-energy set that includes the Disney-inspired title hit and the infectious Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's Heart? Love's powerful vocals are also featured on "My Heart Beat a Little Faster and the Jackie DeShannon-penned Jimmy Baby, while the ever-soulful Sheen is showcased on such tunes as Dear (Here Comes My Baby) and Everything's Gonna Be All Right. Meanwhile, a left-field reading of Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land and the album-closing instrumental Dr. Kaplan's Office demonstrate Spector's quirkier side.
