    Collected

    Collected, the ultimate J.J. Cale collection from 2013 already proved to be a highlight of Music On Vinyl's catalog. Now we're revisiting this essential compilation in a slightly slimmer package: without printed innersleeves, and with a 4-page booklet instead of the 8 pages of liner note material previously included.


    This American cult legend has turned his laidback style into a trademark. J.J. Cale has forged an inspiring career that spans four decades. He received his first major exposure in 1970 thanks to Eric Clapton, who turned J.J. Cale's After Midnight into a hit song overnight. A few years later, Clapton repeated the trick with Cocaine.


    But the legacy of J.J. Cale has much more to offer: collected on three 180 gram LPs chock full of rootsy Americana songs that will stay in the back of your head long after you turned off the record player.

    Naturally (MOV)

    Import


    J.J. Cale never recorded a full album until Eric Clapton scored a huge hit with Cale's 'After Midnight'. Encouraged by friend and producer Audie Ashworth, J.J. Cale recorded Naturally to capitalize on the success of his song.


    He released his debut album in 1972, not knowing this would be the beginning of the so-called Tulsa-sound. A lazy, rolling Boogie that contradicted all the commercial styles of Boogie, Blues, and Country-Rock that was popular at the time. This new sound became the blueprint for the adult-oriented Roots Rock of Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler, among others.


    Naturally contains a new version of 'After Midnight' recorded by J.J. Cale as well as the hits 'Crazy Mama' and 'Call Me The Breeze', which was later covered by Lynyrd Skynyrd.


    Over the years J.J. Cale has written several hits for other musicians and recorded more than fifteen albums which makes him one of the most successful and lasting singer- songwriters of his generation.

    Fear

    Nearly five years into his solo career, Velvet Underground alum John Cale headed to the studio to reinvent himself yet again in 1974. The result, Fear, became the first of a trio of eclectic albums all released in a period spanning just inside 14 months for Island Records. On this, his fourth solo release and first collaboration with Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno, Cale changes form with every composition.


    Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Fear is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's incisive fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the intense content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.


    A smooth, textured departure from the clamor of the Velvets but a darker, more rage-filled concoction than Cale's 1973 set Paris 1919, Fear amazes with boundless range. Whether he's channeling the sweet, gentle Doctor Jekyll in symphonic ballads like "Emily and Ship of Fools, sharpening his teeth as the demented Mr. Hyde in the graffiti-strewn city-rock anthem "Gun, or thrilling with morbid joy in Fear is a Man's Best Friend," Cale effortlessly metamorphoses from one persona to the next. The whimsical Man Who Couldn't Afford to Orgy bounces into the earnest, misty You Know Me More than I Know."


    In the background, Manzanera's guitar buzzes and stings as Eno sculpts a changing landscape of textures with his synthesizer. Infused with sarcastic or cynical lyrics, sweeping melodies, and a wide-eyed sense of exploration, Fear spins rage into beauty and back again.


    Cale is a shapeshifter. Listen to him transform.

    Troubadour

    Troubadour is the fourth album by JJ Cale, released in 1976. Eric Clapton covered the song Cocaine on his 1977 album Slowhand, turning it into one of his biggest hits.


    Clapton later covered the track Travelin' Light for his 2001 studio album Reptile. Travelin' Light was also recorded by Widespread Panic for their album Space Wrangler in 1988.


    Producer Audie Ashworth introduced some different instruments for a slightly altered sound on Troubadour. But the album still bears the typical introspective J.J. Cale style we all love so much!

    J.J. Cale: Rewind: The Unreleased Recordings

    Time Life is very proud to present Rewind: Unreleased Recordings, a trove of previously unreleased songs recorded by American music icon J.J. Cale during his early and most influential years. Featuring vintage tracks from Cale's legendary tenures at Shelter Records and Mercury Records, Rewind is a remarkable collection that exemplifies J.J. Cale's distinctive, legendary style: laid-back guitar and almost whispered vocals with influences of rock 'n' roll, country, blues and jazz. Not only are Rewind's eight Cale-penned songs a time capsule of musical treasures, he also personally selected several covers to include. It's extremely rare for Cale to record another songwriter's material, making these songs particularly extraordinary. He puts his personal spin on Eric Clapton's Golden Ring, Leon Russell's My Cricket, Waylon Jennings' Waymore's Blues and Randy Newman's Rollin'.

    Live In San Diego (with Special Guest JJ Cale)

    Eric Clapton's Live in San Diego With Special Guest JJ Cale is a live album from the 2007 tour featuring JJ Cale, Doyle Bramhall II, Robert Cray, Derek Trucks and more. Almost 2 hours of music including previously unreleased versions of Layla, Tell The Truth, Cocaine and Crossroads.


    Recorded at Clapton's March 15, 2007 performance at the iPayOne Center in San Diego, CA, this concert was part of a world tour that was much loved by Clapton fans and featured a stellar band that included guitarists Derek Trucks (now of the Tedeschi Trucks band) and Doyle Bramhall II. The two-hour San Diego concert was a highlight of the tour as it featured JJ Cale as a special guest on five tracks (including "After Midnight" and "Cocaine"), as well as Robert Cray on the final song of the record, "Crossroads."


    After successfully covering several JJ Cale songs over his career, Clapton finally collaborated with Cale in 2006 on the original album Road to Escondido. At the time, Clapton said "This is the realization of what may have been my last ambition, to work with the man whose music has inspired me for as long as I can remember." So it is fitting that one year later, Cale joined Clapton on stage for this special concert where they performed five songs together - underlining the mutual respect the two musicians had for each other.


    The concert features a superb set list from across Eric's career. Notably, it includes songs from Eric's classic Derek and the Dominos album Layla, with Derek Trucks playing many of Duane Allman's original guitar parts.


    Clapton's career, spanning more than 50 years, has resulted in 18 Grammy Awards and the distinct honor of being the only triple inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

    25th Anniversary Edition

    John Weldon J. J. Cale was an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Though he avoided the limelight (being temperamentally averse to celebrity), his influence as a musical artist has been widely acknowledged by artists like Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, and Eric Clapton, who described him as one of the most important artists in the history of rock.

    J.J. Cale is considered to be one of the originators of the Tulsa Sound, a loose genre drawing on blues, rockabilly, country, and jazz.

    Cale unfortunately passed away in 2013, but his legacy lives on.

    Number 10 is Cale's 10th album and contains another wonderful and laid back/mellow collection of typical J.J. Cale tunes. Traces, Artificial Paradise, Low Rides and Jailes are considered part of his best 1990s songs.

    The Academy In Peril

    "The Academy In Peril" by former Velvet Underground member John Cale was originally released in 1972. The album is an exploration of his influences and training in classical music and features mainly instrumental compositions including two tracks that feature the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Cale balances the rock-classical fusion on the record with touches of humor while the music is beautiful and subtle showing Cale's skills at composing and arranging. Contributors include Ron Wood on guitar, Del Newman on drums and Legs Larry Smith of The Bonzo Dog Band. Cover art and design by Andy Warhol. 180 gram vinyl reissue in a die-cut custom gatefold jacket.

    Helen of Troy

    To his chagrin, John Cale's record label released his unfinished demo tapes while he was busy producing Patti Smith's groundbreaking Horses. But to his surprise, the resulting album, Helen of Troy, is considered the most stylistically cohesive of the eclectic Island Trilogy, the trio of albums Cale recorded for Island Records during the course of 1974-75. Featuring Brian Eno's lithe synthesizer, Phil Collins' expert drumming, and Cale's manic streetwise songwriting, Helen of Troy delivers more sophistication than most final cuts, and cuts deeper in its roughness.


    Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Helen of Troy is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's engaging fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the moody content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.


    From the celestial opening strains of My Maria, which sounds in places like a hymn, to the teeth-gnashing Sudden Death, Cale shows us heaven, hell, and the life in between. Employing a cocktail of wild experimentation, tonal versatility, and range of emotion, Cale's compositions whip from soaring serenades like I Keep a Close Watch to the unhinged, wild-eyed Leaving It Up to You (pulled from the original release due to its reference to the murder of Sharon Tate) to the soulful, surf-derived China Sea. Eno's synthesizer casts love spells and shadows while Chris Spedding's guitar drills bluesy, ragged holes through every composition. A tormented, sinister cover of the Modern Lovers' Pablo Picasso (Cale produced the Lovers' debut) shows what you get when you replace Jonathan Richman's dreamy smile with Cale's bared teeth.


    Although we'll never know what the one-time Velvet Underground cohort had in mind for the finished product, with its labyrinthine arrangements, theatrical spontaneity, and primal rawness, Helen of Troy is a gem that's better unpolished.

    M:FANS

    Over 50 years in the business of Contemporary Music and John Cale remains as active and
    unpredictable as ever; is there a more restless and ruminating spark of an artist, who, at the age of
    73, admits he still goes to the studio every day and writes? From classical roots as a precociously
    gifted Welsh boy to modern-classical experiments in New York, that lead to co-founding The Velvet
    Underground, Cale has filtered that mindset through singer-songwriter, proto-punk and post-punk
    prisms. His endless fascination has kept us endlessly fascinated, as Cale has consistently created
    new fissions, including the digital advances of the day, absorbed by hip hop as much as conventional
    songwriting.


    Which is where we find Cale at this precise moment, with not just the re-mastered version of one of his
    most unique and lauded solo records, the 1982 masterpiece Music For A New Society, but a complete
    new reworking of the album under the title M:FANS, a record that explores the relationship between
    old and new, in terms of the sound and vision, and Cale's memories of the experience, in terms of his
    life, and the recording. M: FANS ends with "Back To The End", a previously unfinished outtake that Cale
    rediscovered among the original tapes, whose haunting spectral mood matches anything on the 1982
    record. (This version retains Cale's original vocal and piano while adding viola). Back and forth M:FANS
    goes, sampling the original, while creating brand new soundscapes, giving Cale the opportunity for
    closure on one of the most testing eras of his life, and a way to keep moving forward.


    Music For A New Society had a fraught birth, to say the least. With Cale having folded his Spy label
    imprint into Michael Zilkha's Ze Records, and retired his band for a run of solo concerts, Zilkha proposed
    an album to capture this new phase. Rising to the challenge - "a very good one" - Cale created a brief
    for the exercise; to only allow himself the ten days booked in the studio to complete the record, and to
    only set the tape rolling when he was ready to improvise. Cale once recalled the recording process as,
    "like method acting. Madness. Excruciating. I just let myself go. It became a kind of therapy, a personal
    exorcism." But that fed into the album's extreme qualities; its nerve-shredding raw intimacy, its fractured,
    anguished beauty.


    "Close Watch" is one of the most radical of M: FANS tracks - it's now a spectral trance-duet that features
    Amber Coffman of the Dirty Projectors, a band Cale has long admired. The most straightforward ballad
    on the original, "Chinese Envoy" is even more radical, "which is so refreshing, I'd done it so many times
    as a ballad. It's a happier song the way it is now, but it doesn't offend the sensibility of the song." I think
    the tracks have benefited from being given more attention this time. I was really rushing through things
    the first time.


    In 1982, Music For A New Society sounded exactly like its title: something futuristic, a new kind of
    songwriting exercise. In 2015, M:FANS is exactly that too, full of electrical crackle and disturbed
    frequencies, a different kind of dystopian future awaits. John Cale forages on; it's the only way he knows
    how.

    Live At Rockpalast

    When John Cale appeared onstage at Grugahalle Essen, Germany on October, 13th 1984, it was nearly 3 o'clock in the morning and the atmosphere in the hall was as tense and menacing as the conert that followed.



    Starting with the self ironic Autobiography, this concert represents the rock musician John Cale, playing highlights from his last studio album Caribbean Sunset as well as all-time classics like Fear Is A Man's Best Friend, Paris 1919 and a breathtaking version of the Velvet Underground classic Waiting For The Man.



    Supported by David Lichtenstein (drums), Andy Heermans (bass) and David Young (guitar), John Cale presented the songs in very rough, sparse, nearly minimalistic arrangements, always cutting the edge and strictly combing the point in every song. Up to this day, this performance remains one of the most spectacular concerts in the history of the Rockpalast series.

    Blue Rider (Awaiting Repress)

    Often cited by critics and peers alike as a songwriter's songwriter, Zachary Cale has been quietly constructing a catalog for nearly a decade, one which showcases mastery and a unique voice across folk ballads, guitar instrumentals, and country-tinged rock. His songs are marked with his signature finger-style guitar playing and lyrical command as he blends the echoed open-tuned guitar patterns of artists like John Martyn and Bert Jansch with the desolate American lyricism of lone riders like Simon Joyner and Elliott Smith, standing out as a songwriter of uncommon power.


    "Zachary Cale is the best singer-songwriter working
    right now. Period."

    - POP MATTERS


    (a) reedy, hangdog style supported by songs that are
    pure class...this music will wait for you all to catch up."

    -DuSTED


    Cale separates himself from the crowd with a rare balance between emotional depth and ankle-deep Kinks pop sensibilities."

    New Years Eve In Tulsa

    Live At Cain's Ballroom In Tulsa, OK On December 31st, 1975


    The superb recording featured on this deluxe vinyl release comes from an FM radio broadcast of Cale's New Year's Eve performance in 1975, at Cain's Ballroom in the town in which he was raised, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Featuring a majestic set of J.J. Cale favorites taken from the albums he had released by this juncture in his career, along with a couple of cuts which at the time had yet to grace a J.J. studio record, all performed in an extended format, radically different from the album versions. This recording illustrates perfectly where J.J. Cale was musically by the end of 1975 and shows the direction in which he was moving for the next phase of his marvelous career.

    Slow Dazzle

    In 1975, mad scientist and Velvet Underground alum John Cale returned to the lab to record another experiment. Slow Dazzle, his fifth solo album and second collaboration with Roxy Music's Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera, dissects rock and avant-garde, hacks the limbs off of pop and jazz, and fuses the styles together into a limber, impassioned creation.


    Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Slow Dazzle is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's incisive fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the emotionally unsettling content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.


    Sometimes jaunty and beer-soaked, sometimes maniacally spitting into the microphone about killing his wife's lover, sometimes despairing, sometimes sweet, Cale holds forth with schizophrenic authority. Manzanera's sordid guitar dirges ambidextrously switch to cheerful riffs as Eno's synthesizer rubber-bands its way through sunshine and smoke-machine fog. Chris Thomas, who recorded with the Beatles and engineered albums for Pink Floyd and the Sex Pistols, throws haunted violin and dissonant electric piano into the formula.


    Whether he's heaping neon sleaze atop earnest surf harmonies in an ode to the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson (Mr. Wilson), lulling you into a blurred, easy-listening trance (Ski Patrol, I'm Not the Loving Kind), or growling a pre-goth era cover of Elvis' Heartbreak Hotel" with mascara-running intensity, Cale delivers an elastic range of artistry. Ditties like "Dirty Ass Rock 'N' Roll" and "Guts" place psychopath tendencies into the body of a catchy pop song, turn up the electricity, twitch, and grab.


    By all means, Cale's experiment was a success. Slow Dazzle is alive.

    Fragments Of A Rainy Season

    Fragments Of A Rainy Season is the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and "unplugged" - before that term became a mid-'90s buzzword. In contrast to the jaundiced punk truculence of Sabotage/Live (1979) or Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1986), Fragments gives us Cale at his most melodic and moving, a mellowed and certainly a soberer man in a Yamamoto jacket and a lopsided haircut running through a selection of his prettiest songs.


    The album features incredible versions of 'Paris 1919,' 'Dying On The Vine,' 'Chinese Envoy,' cover versions of the Elvis classic 'Heartbreak Hotel,' his devastating treatment of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' and a suite of Dylan Thomas' works 'On A Wedding Anniversary,' 'Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed' and 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.'

    Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood

    Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood is a title to set tongues wagging and minds wondering, but for an album that seems born of a return to John's youth it seems safely apt in its mischievousness.


    After nearly 50 years of making music it's still freshly evident that Cale draws from a make believe world first imagined by his young self. Track title 'Mothra' pays homage to the Japanese monster from Godzilla movies. As a boy practicing scales in grey skied Welsh valleys such fantastical flights of fancy must have been reassuring of the path that was potentially about to unfold for him. Lyrics reveal even more explicitly earlier incarnations of Cale and in the same song we relive an encounter with a local bully, You see me running, you see me climb, reading my books and always trying, laughing and teasing and I love to play, dreaming my dreams are never far away.


    Elsewhere Cale's doing what he does best, guiding listeners through the places, politics, and people of the day. A wide range of human experience is reflected and often it's for the listener to dig deeper to find what's being documented. Sometimes however part of the tapestry is pulled soberingly into focus; when listening to 'Scotland Yard' while the Leveson enquiry plays out, it's all too easy to recognize the guilty.


    As a producer Cale has reached a new plateau on this record. At the albums most maximal, it feels like looking at a collection of precious stones. Myriads of differently coloured and textured surfaces carefully placed together, each finding their own space to beckon the ear. It's a blend of chaos and beauty in equal measure and a testament to the exploratory spirit at work, which ensures that as always, there's something new to the ears here.

    Troubadour

    Producer Audie Ashworth introduced some different instruments, notably vibes and what sound like horns (although none are credited), for a slightly altered sound on Troubadour. But J.J. Cale's albums are so steeped in his introspective style that they become interchangeable. If you like one of them, chances are you'll want to have them all. This one is notable for introducing Cocaine, which Eric Clapton covered on his Slowhand album a year later.

    Duskland

    "He dwells in the same darkness as Cass McCombs, punctuating the cobwebbed stillness with lowing organ and severe, almost pagan imagery. The Crimson moon, the city of refuge: Thesewould be hapless signi ers in
    another singer's mouth. Cale's drawl molds them back into tremendous fra gments, oating in a skyline somewhere just beyond the dusk. All of Duskland possesses that same fantastic self-assurance." -Stereogum


    Zachary Cale has been releasing records under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland,
    the title of his latest record, is a work of craftsmanship full of elegant lyricism and mysterious
    imagery; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it,
    forging new paths.


    Allegorical in nature, Cale's songs move away from the inward reveries of his last album, Blue Rider,
    and divide outward into the voices of others. The album projects images of wide-open spaces and
    landscapes constructed from half remembered dreams. There isn't always a clear resolution, characters
    remain in a state of twilight, wandering from place to place in search of an undefined illumination. The
    lyric: So many lifetimes I lived in one / I've got to bury them now / No surprises this time around /
    Not beneath this crown, taken from I Left The Old Cell, aptly captures the human complexities found
    throughout the songs.


    Taking cues from artists like Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind era Dylan and Nick Cave's work with the
    Bad Seeds, Duskland evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales.
    There's a Western flair to many of the album's songs with nods to soundtrack composers such as
    Morricone and the dream-laden noir of Badalamenti. Many of the album's highlights maintain a
    ceremonial grace. Sundowner opens the album with a lush organ progression played over a
    plaintive march. As the tension builds, Cale muses Branded as a fugitive / Dressed in the clothes
    of an innocent / Sirens ricochet / From bloodless lips I hear them call my name. From there the
    album moves forward like one long processional; Cale leads his band through up-tempo folk rock
    and charming country waltzes to minor key dirges and atmospheric instrumentals until ending with a
    horn section dragging over a funeral beat in the long form ballad Low Light Serenade.

    A Trip Down The Sunset Strip


    Mastered From Viva Records' Original Mono Tapes


    Pressed On Heavy-Duty 180-Gram Vinyl


    Limited Edition Of 1000 Copies


    The Leathercoated Minds' 1967 release A Trip Down the Sunset Strip is a one-of-a-kind artifact of the psychedelic era. Originally conceived as an exploitation item, it nonetheless emerged as an enduring musical statement, thanks to the talents of those involved, particularly then-unknown Oklahoma-bred guitarist J.J. Cale.


    As its title suggests, A Trip Down the Sunset Strip was originally concocted by noted pop producer Snuff Garrett (known for his hitmaking '60s work with the likes of Bobby Vee, Cher and Gary Lewis and the Playboys) to tap into the wave of publicity that surrounded the Sunset Strip and the Hollywood club scene at the time. For the project, Garrett assigned Cale to cut a set of instrumental versions of then-recent psychedelic hits, which were augmented with four Cale originals. It totally captures the era's heady sense of excitement and inspiration.


    The visionary talents of Cale virtually assured that A Trip Down the Sunset Strip would transcend its humble origins, becoming an increasingly rare collectible as its reputation grew. Now back in its original LP configuration, our release has been mastered from Viva Records' original mono tapes, pressed on heavy-duty 180-gram vinyl and is available in a limited edition of 1000 copies!

    The Road To Escondido


    The 2-LP Set Is Pressed At R.T.I. On 180-gram High-Performance Vinyl


    After years of admiring each other's
    musical masterworks, guitar great J.J.
    Cale and three-time Rock and Roll Hall
    of Famer, 16-time Grammy®winner Eric
    Claptonhave teamed up for the first
    time to create an original album together, The Road To Escondido. The resulting hybrid sound defies being labeled,
    but instead finds influence across the
    spectrum of blues, rock, country and
    folk. The songs are warm and rich, with
    deep flowing rhythms, yet use an economy of words to express much.


    In a true collaboration,
    Cale (whose songs "After Midnight" and "Cocaine"
    Clapton had previously covered) and Clapton jointly
    produced and recorded the album, each playing and
    singing on the tracks. Cale wrote 11 of the songs,
    Clapton wrote "Three Little Girls," John Mayer
    wrote "Hard To Thrill" and the duo cover the blues
    classic "Sporting Life Blues." Among the numerous
    guest artists are Mayer, Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks,
    Doyle Bramhall II, Albert Lee, and the late Billy
    Preston, who donated his classic keyboard talents
    throughout the album.
