    Of all the American rock bands that embraced the blues in the 1960s, none took their musical mission more seriously than Canned Heat. The California quintet, led by vocalists Alan Blind Owl Wilson and Bob The Bear Hite and featuring the brilliant guitarist Henry Vestine, combined fiery instrumental chops with a vast knowledge of blues history. Canned Heat quickly carved out a unique niche in that heady era, making high-profile appearances at Woodstock and other notable rock festivals, and managing to break into the pop singles charts without diluting their sound.



    Canned Heat's eponymous 1967 debut LP, released shortly after their attention-getting performance at the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, introduced the band's audacious synthesis of blues tradition and electrified boogie. The 11-song album features raw, fiercely soulful interpretations of material by such blues masters as Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Sonny Boy Williamson, powered by Wilson and Hite's contrasting vocal styles and Vestine's explosive fretwork. The result is one of the most distinctive and dynamic blues-rock recordings of the '60s, and the album that launched Canned Heat's five-decade musical journey.



    This new vinyl edition of this landmark debut effort has been sourced from the original mono masters and pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and features a meticulous reproduction of the LP's original cover art.

    Hooker 'N Heat (Pure Pleasure)

    When this two-LP set was initially released in January 1971, Canned Heat was back to its R&B roots. Sporting a slightly revised personnel with the return of Henry 'Sunflower' Vestine and the incorporation of Antonio 'Tony' de la Barreda on bass, a highly skilled constituent of Aldolfo de la Parra on drums. Sadly, it would also be the final effort to include co-founder Alan 'Blind Owl' Wilson, who passed away in September 1970. Hooker 'n Heat (1971) is a low-key affair split between unaccompanied solo John Lee Hooker tunes, collaborations between Hooker and Wilson, as well as five full-blown confabs between Hooker and Heat.



    The full-fledged collaborations shine as both parties unleash some of their finest respective work. While Canned Heat get top bill - probably as it was the group's record company that sprung for Hooker 'n Heat - make no mistake, as Hooker steers the combo with the same gritty and percussive guitar leads that have become his trademark. The epic Boogie Chillen No. 2 stretches over 11-and-a-half minutes and is full of the same swagger as the original, with the support of Canned Heat igniting the verses and simmering on the subsequent instrumental breaks with all killer and no filler.



    Musicians:



    • John Lee Hooker (guitar, vocal)

    • Alan Wilson (piano, harmonica)

    • Henry Vestine (guitar)

    • Antonio de la Barreda (bass)

    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.

    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Presentation Of His Groundbreaking, Earth Shattering, Iconic 1963 Masterpiece


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original ATCO Records Tapes


    John Lee Hooker was absolutely one of the most prolific and rhythmic pioneers of the blues scene for most of his life. Recording his first 78's in the forties and rapidly becoming one of the most in demand bluesmen of his time, Hooker was truly an American legend of our modern times.


    With hundreds of songs and an untold amount of recordings and live performances throughout his
    lifetime, John Lee Hooker was also one of the most revered and interpreted songwriters. Major recording acts like Canned Heat, Johnny Winter, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Thorogood were all champions of this sorely missed icon.


    Fifty years ago, ATCO Records released one of the most important albums of his career with Don't Turn Me From Your Door - John Lee Hooker Sings His Blues. The dozen gems that make up this rural blues event would go on to become some of his most famous tunes including the title track which was covered by numerous rock and blues artists over the years like Savoy Brown and the terrific blues wailing of Drifting Blues, the rockin' Real Real Gone and of course another brilliant standard with My Baby Don't Love Me.


    The award winning giant of the blues continues with even more hard rockin' blues like Guitar Lovin' Man,
    Wobbling Baby and his fan favorite Stuttering Blues.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the artistry of the late great John Lee Hooker, and it is with much honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl 50th Anniversary release of his masterpiece Don't Turn Me From Your Door.


    Impeccably mastered by Joe "Bluesman" Reagoso (John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat/Johnny Winter) from
    the original ATCO Records tapes, John Lee Hooker's classic Don't Turn Me From Your Door will truly be one of the most anticipated blues releases of the year.


    To make your limited edition listening experience all the more entertaining, we are also including the very rare album cover graphics for the first time in fifty years, which will truly enhance the wonderful blues within by the legendary John Lee Hooker.

    Fully Remastered Audio By Jeffrey Norman

    Blues Traveler are a hippie blues'n'boogie band in the mode of Canned Heat and Savoy Brown. Led by John Popper, a rotund singer and harmonica player, the New Jersey quartet captured the open-ended jam mentality of its live shows on its first two studio albums. On their third album, Save His Soul, Blues Traveler tightens up their arrangements and puts more emphasis on songwriting and premeditated parts. While this cuts down on the meandering solos and monotonous rhythm patterns, it forces attention on the hackneyed aphorisms and melody-starved chord changes that pass for the band's songwriting. On the other hand, they have improved noticeably as players, and bassist Bobby Sheehan shines in particular on the fast and tricky syncopations. --Geoffrey Himes

    Canned Heat (MONO)

    Of all the American rock bands that embraced the blues in the 1960s, none took their musical mission more seriously than Canned Heat. The California quintet, led by vocalists Alan Blind Owl Wilson and Bob The Bear Hite and featuring the brilliant guitarist Henry Vestine, combined fiery instrumental chops with a vast knowledge of blues history. Canned Heat quickly carved out a unique niche in that heady era, making high-profile appearances at Woodstock and other notable rock festivals, and managing to break into the pop singles charts without diluting their sound.

    Muddy Waters At Newport 1960


    The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Continues!


    Muddy Waters Masterwork Live Album! In Stereo!


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records Stereo Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    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 his career cutting early sides for defunct labels
    before landing in Chicago in the early forties, where he began a long climb to the top of the blues world, later cutting a series of
    hit sessions for Aristocrat which became Chess Records. Phil and Leonard Chess knew they had a kingpin on their hands when
    Muddy started his endless stream of blues smashes. The label honored the man with his first live album simply titled Muddy Waters
    At Newport 1960. 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 James Cotton on harp and the masterful Otis Spann on piano, Muddy
    Waters At Newport 1960 would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day Chicago blues history.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits I Got My Brand On You, Muddy continues to rock the crowd through a
    treasure trove of 8 more blues champions which made this one of the most important live recordings of all time. The album features
    classic gems like his classics Got My Mojo Working, Baby Please Don't Go, and I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Noted for his stellar
    guitar work, pretty much introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, Muddy Waters At
    Newport 1960 became truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues guitarists for years like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat
    and The Rolling Stones. Muddy broke down barriers for millions of music fans worldwide to enjoy rock and blues, making him along
    with John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Robert Johnson one of the first pioneers of the blues and rock genre.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. 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 Waters At Newport 1960.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry) for the first time on audiophile vinyl from
    the Chess stereophonic tapes, Muddy Waters At Newport 1960 will truly become one of the most important and historical 180 Gram
    Audiophile Vinyl titles to be released in quite some time.


    To further celebrate this first time authorized stereophonic audiophile vinyl LP, we enhance this limited edition masterwork
    with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as a rare inside gatefold photo of the man who helped
    fuse blues and rock music for millions of music lovers across the globe.

    Heat Leisure III & IV

    Heat Leisure is a collective centered around the Carney brothers of Pontiak, Greg Fox and Alexandra Drewchin of Guardian Alien, Steve Strohmeier of Beach House, and Robert J. Otten III. Their music takes a freewheeling approach to psychedelia with obvious nods to Amon DÜÜl II, Can and the Grateful Dead. For this, their second gathering and recording at the Carney s farm in Virginia, the group recruited the legendary Merry Prankster and Grateful Dead associate Ken Babbs, who emceed the Dead s mythical Veneta, OR gig in 1972 that became Sunshine Daydream, to contribute a shamanistic monologue to III, which occupies the first side of this, their first full-length vinyl release. The Carneys approached Babbs about collaborating with Heat Leisure t his Oregon farm on the last Pontiak tour. Heat Leisure s core principles are spontaneity, serendipity, and collaboration. The band employs frying amp distortion, a signature of Pontiak, as well as an array of drums, synthesizers, samplers, organs and a heavy dose of explorative improvisation by the musicians to create a highly lyrical album. Heat Leisure was conceived as a multi-media pursuit. While this release, III & IV, is an audio record, Heat Leisure I & II was released in the form of a short film/DVD with an accompanying 7 . The Carneys have said that future incarnations could take any form from performance and paintings, to sculptures or even digital mediums. Very much like the collaborative approach of the musicians to each session, they are keeping it open. III & IV was recorded late at night during a three day period during the first week of 2014 in Pontiak s Studio A, also on their farm, with Lain Carney doing most of the engineering. The session was recorded live to 1 tape, the reel old and decaying, which lead the tape to subtly speed up and slow down as the tape broke down and left residue on the tape heads. This organic effect adds to the woozy, surreal vibe of the music, and could not be replicated in a digital recording.

    Save His Soul

    Celestial Marble Vinyl


    Fully Remastered Audio By Jeffrey Norman


    Custom True Replica Jacket Featuring Brilliant Original Artwork


    Blues Traveler are a hippie blues'n'boogie band in the mode of Canned Heat and Savoy Brown. Led by John Popper, a rotund singer and harmonica player, the New Jersey quartet captured the open-ended jam mentality of its live shows on its first two studio albums. On their third album, Save His Soul, Blues Traveler tightens up their arrangements and puts more emphasis on songwriting and premeditated parts. While this cuts down on the meandering solos and monotonous rhythm patterns, it forces attention on the hackneyed aphorisms and melody-starved chord changes that pass for the band's songwriting. On the other hand, they have improved noticeably as players, and bassist Bobby Sheehan shines in particular on the fast and tricky syncopations. --Geoffrey Himes

    The soundtrack to Tim Burton's neo classic moving picture Big Fish (2003), starring Ewan McGregor, Helena Bonham Carter, Marion Cotillard and Jessica Lange, collects classic Pop songs and a score of longtime collaborator Danny Elfman (Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mars Attacks! and others).


    The 2LP soundtrack also contains a new song from Pearl Jam, specifically written for the movie: Man of the Hour. The soundtrack's Pop songs range from Bing Crosby's early-'30s Jazz hit Dinah to the '50s nostalgia of Buddy Holly's Everyday and Elvis Presley's All Shook Up, right up to the '60s and '70s recollections of Canned Heat's Let's Work Together and Ramblin' Man by the Allman Brothers Band.


    The album was nominated for the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score.

    Truckin' With Albert Collins


    The Albert Collins/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Begins!


    His Groundbreaking, Earth Shattering Debut, Early 60's Texas Blues Masterpiece!


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Presentation • Anniversary Edition


    Texan Albert Collins was absolutely one of the most prolific and rhythmic pioneers on the American blues scene
    ever. Recording his first 45's in the early sixties and rapidly becoming one of the most in demand bluesmen of his
    time, Collins was truly an American legend on the worldwide blues circuit.


    While recording a plethora of singles on cool blues labels like Kangaroo, Tracie and Hall-Way from 1962 to 1965,
    TCF Records released Albert's first album The Cool Sounds Of Albert Collins a/k/a Truckin' With Albert Collins from a
    bunch of these wonderful single sessions. The album quickly faded into obscurity until a chance meeting with Canned
    Heat. The band convinced the man to make a move to California and the rest is rock and blues history.


    Upon his arrival on the L.A. rock and blues market, he soon became one of the country's leading blues guitarist
    with a ton of devotees like his fans Canned Heat, John Mayall, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Robert Cray whom were all
    diggin' what the bluesman was laying down.


    Blue Thumb Records soon re-released his stunning first album Truckin' With Albert Collins, and now thousands
    of blues fans the world over were soon discovering the classic early sixties album which boasted his hit blues singles
    like Frosty, Tremble and Frost Bite.


    The dozen gems that make up this jumping blues event would go on to become some of his most famous tunes
    including Frosty which was covered by numerous rock and blues artists over the years, plus even more terrific blues
    rockers like of Sno-Cone II, Icy Blue and the rockin' Don't Lose Your Cool.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the best in blues music, and it is with much honor to announce the first time 180
    Gram Audiophile Vinyl Anniversary release of Albert Collins' debut masterpiece Truckin' With Albert Collins.


    Impeccably mastered by Joe "Bluesman" Reagoso (John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat/Johnny Winter) from the
    original Blue Thumb Records tapes, Albert Collins' classic Truckin' With Albert Collins will truly be one of the most
    anticipated blues releases of this holiday season.


    To make your limited edition listening experience all the more entertaining, we are also including the very rare
    gatefold album cover graphics for the first time in four decades, including the stunning essay by the legendary Pete
    Welding which will truly enhance the wonderful blues within by the late great and sorely missed Albert Collins.

    Gag A Maggot

    Back in Print Since 1973 on Green Vinyl


    Another Southern Soul rarity re-released for the first time on vinyl since its original release in 1973! This album is so funky that it'll gag a maggott and drown a drop. Due to the fact that a maggott is the funkiest thing on earth; if this LP can make him gag which it already has, no telling what it'll do to your funny ass ... Swamp Dogg Swamp Dogg's Gag A Maggott was recorded in 1973 at TK in Miami with an all-star cast. The song Choking To Death (From The Ties That Bind) was recorded by Canned Heat in 1974. Thematically, this seems to be a fairly conventional soul LP -- great cover of In the Midnight Hour and lots of love and money in the lyrics. Granted, Wife Sitter is as nasty as Jody songs get, mostly because Dogg plays the cuckold, making Jody with such relish. And to call your sweeest love song I CouldnÍt Pay for What I Got Last Night, is to combine the two themes more intimately than most soul men consider necessary. Nor do most soul men drive so hard -- Ivan Olander's drums, Little Beaver's guitar, even the horns of the Swamp Dogg Band maintain a fierce momentum that's not conventional at all.

    Vinyl Bonus Track Deeper Underground


    Synkronized is the fourth studio album released by funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai, fronted by vocalist and key-member Jay Kay. Originally released in 1999, Synkronized is the band's follow-up to the successful album Traveling Without Moving. The album includes the singles Canned Heat (#1 on the US Dance Charts), Supersonic (#1 on the US Dance Charts and #22 on the UK singles chart), King for a Day, Black Capricorn Day, and Deeper Underground.


    The single Deeper Underground originally appeared on the soundtrack to the 1998 film, Godzilla. The song became a hit in several countries and the group's first and only single to reach number one on the UK Singles Chart. The Music On Vinyl version has Deeper Underground added as a special vinyl bonus track which the original LP version from 1999 lacked.


    The entire album is a fine example of fusing pop, funk-acid jazz, ethnic influences and Jay Kay's interest in funk and disco and still sounds fresh and groovy today.

    The Taking Of Blackheart

    Released in January 2013, The Taking of Black Heart literally sees retro-rock survivors Five Horse Johnson galloping back into action -- or at least that's the rhythmic feel of the album's opening number, The Job, the image gracing its cover art, etc. Given all they've been through (none of it more traumatizing than frontman Eric Oblander suffering a stroke!), few would expect the group to come riding in to rescue classic rock from a fate worse than death (irrelevance), especially some six years removed from their last long-player's release. But as song after song rolls by, oftentimes driven by bluesier and rootsier songwriting ethics than 5HJ's ever displayed before, hope does spring eternal -- amen, bruvvers and sistahs, alright. Wailing harmonica and slippery slide guitars wrap themselves round and round laid-back groovers (Keep on Diggin', Smash & Grab, Die in the River) and foot-stomping bruisers alike (Black Heart Baby, Shoot My Way Out), thereby luring patrons left and right into 5HJ's juke joint -- and the first shot of canned heat is on them. Heck, and if any additional credibility were needed, get a load of Cheap Trick's Robin Zander taking over the mike stand for the album's funkiest, most euphoric moment in You're My Girl -- Otis Redding surely would approve. Perhaps more than any other track, the latter also highlights Five Horse Johnson's enduring faith and pure joy in playing rock & roll, regardless of how many paying customers show up on any given night. They're a band's band, at the end of the day: playing to play -- and The Taking of Black Heart is therefore a welcome return, bringing good news to the rock & roll faithful everywhere.

    Father of Folk Blues (Awaiting Repress)

    This was the first such presentation of a Delta blues musician done by Columbia, which seemed like a pretty hip label at the time, since they had both Bob Dylan and Paul Revere and the Raiders. The man's picture on the front is mesmerizing, in a word; the white shirt, black string tie, and silver steel guitar just adding to the excitement. Perhaps this album picture was the first glimpse many young listeners had of such a style of guitar. It was decades before Dire Straits appropriated the image. Revisionist critical thinking has it that the later recordings by Son House can't match the music created during his '30s sessions for Paramount. Here, of course, we have the music as sports syndrome, an area where the elderly are always going to fail in someone's eyes. So much of music enjoyment, however, is a subjective reaction that so often involves many other factors, among them time and place. The sound of the metal slide quietly hovering over the strings can bring to mind only one thing in the mind of a westerner: an angry rattlesnake. And the way many listeners' jaws dropped upon hearing music such as this for the first time may not be quite as intense as a hiker's facial expression upon encountering such a creature, but it is close enough. There is a second blues legend appearing here as well. Guitarist and harmonica player Al Wilson was a founding member of Canned Heat, and a musician so good at what he did that he became a sterling example of the possibility that young white blues fans could actually learn to play this music really well, with intensity.
