    They Only Come Out At Night

    Mastered from the Original Epic Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray


    Edgar Winter, the multi-talented superstar brother of blues rock legend Johnny Winter, has been a fixture on the rock music scene now for several decades. While launching his own successful career with his solo albums and Edgar Winters White Trash, the natural progression for this man was to develop his own supergroup which would become the platinum and gold selling The Edgar Winter Group.


    Releasing their first album in 1973, They Only Come Out At Night was an overnight success, thanks to the mind altering studio jam Frankenstein which has since become one of classic rocks finest moments. This instrumental smash featured the stunning keyboard of Edgar Winter, the incredible guitar of resident shredder Ronnie Montrose, the thumping bass of the late great Dan Hartman and of course the solid percussive hits of Chuck Ruff.


    The album went onto receive more attention from radio programmers across the globe as even further hit songs would rapidly develop including the blues rocker Undercover Man, the country rock feel of Round & Round and of course another top charter with the summer Top 40 Rock driving sounds of Dan Hartmans Free Ride. The Rick Derringer produced album would go on to stay on the charts for a long time and receive multiple platinum status in a very short time. Truly, one of classic rocks finest albums ever recorded!


    Now for the first time ever on audiophile vinyl, Friday Music announces the first installment of their Edgar Winter 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his platinum plus album They Only Come Out At Night. This first time audiophile vinyl release is mastered from the original Epic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Johnny Winter/Alice Cooper/Boston) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI.


    For this special release, the limited edition album comes in the original gatefold album cover, which features the photography of Francesco Scavullo and Norman Seeff and artwork design of John Berg.

    Instant Replay

    Celebrate The Legendary Artist's #1 Record From 1978


    Stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent Red Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably At Friday Music - Pressed At R.T.I.


    Featuring: Edgar Winter, Vinnie Vincent (Formerly Of Kiss), G.E. Smith (Hall & Oates / Bob Dylan)


    In 1978, mega artist Dan Hartman (Free Ride, I Can Dream About You, Living In America) was sitting on top of the world. After a long
    tenure performing with superstars like Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter and The Edgar Winter Group, Dan rewarded his fans once again with
    one of the most important club and pop songs of the era with Instant Replay. Featuring the classic line-up of Dan Hartman, Vinnie Vincent
    (Kiss), G.E. Smith (Bob Dylan) and former bandmate Edgar Winter, the Instant Replay album rapidly became one of the most definitive albums of his very successful career.


    The LP kicks off with the #1 title track Instant Replay and simmers on with the lengthy dance smash Countdown/This Is It. His rock and
    funk side continues with even more classics like Double-O-Love and the brilliant Time And Space, making this one of most popular albums
    of the time and continues to be heard on radio and in dance halls all over the world.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the stunning recordings of Dan Hartman and his affiliations with our other artists Johnny Winter and The Edgar Winter Group. Therefore, it is with much excitement to announce the legendary Dan Hartman masterpiece Instant Replay. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Johnny Winter/Isley Brothers/ Instant Funk) at Friday Music Studios and pressed at RTI, this stunning LP was long overdue for the audiophile vinyl domain.


    Dan Hartman would go on later to become one of the top recording artists, composers and record producers of our time. Collaborating
    with such diverse artists as Joe Cocker, Stevie Winwood and James Brown, his career ended with his untimely passing in 1994.


    In honor of the late artist and this amazing album, we are presenting Instant Replay for the first time on translucent RED Vinyl with a limited edition gatefold cover. We believe this wonderful new audiophile release of Instant Replay will become one of the most anticipated dance and classic rock/pop releases of the year!

    The Edgar Winter/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrate 4 Decades Of Edgar Winter's White Trash


    First Time 180 Gram White Vinyl!


    Featuring Guitar Legends: Johnny Winter & Rick Derringer


    The legendary rocker and blues statesman Edgar Winter continues to enthrall audiences the world over.
    With his unique brand of musical genius and keyboard, sax and vocal prowess, Edgar's style will always be truly
    unmatched in purity and longevity.


    While he tours, produces and records non-stop, it's no secret that his live shows have always been top notch
    and legendary. In 1972, Edgar Winter along with his band White Trash played a series of shows at the famed Apollo
    Theatre and Academy Of Music in New York City, plus the Whisky A Go-Go in L.A. Luckily, Epic Records captured
    the prolific event on tape and the amazing album Roadwork was born.


    For Roadwork, the artist surely becomes a superstar on this mammoth 2 LP set. Featuring rock and soul classics
    like Chuck Berry's Back In the U.S.A. and Otis Redding's I Can't Turn You Loose, plus tunes from his first two
    albums like the epic 17 minute version of Tobacco Road, Roadwork proves to be a never ending festival of rock,
    blues, gospel and R&B earth shattering performances. The band features his friends like guitar hero Rick Derringer
    as well as power vocalist Jerry LaCroix, and of course his late great brother Johnny Winter brings the house down
    with his surprise visit on the smash hit Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo.


    The masterpiece was also a primer for a lot of rockers who for the first time would be treated to the likes of
    musical pioneers like Bobby "Blue" Bland thanks to the late great Jerry LaCroix's shuddering vocal performance
    on the album closer Turn On Your Lovelight.


    Edgar Winter's artistry is no stranger to the Friday Music label, therefore it is with much honor to announce
    the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of his classic Edgar Winter's White Trash Roadwork album. For
    a very short time, this monumental masterwork is being presented on 180 Gram White Vinyl and featuring the
    original gatefold LP artwork, not seen in years in this format.


    Roadwork by Edgar Winter's White Trash Featuring Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer Four sides of pure
    rock, soul and rhythm and blues stunning limited edition white vinyl courtesy of your friends at Friday Music.

    Edgar Winter's White Trash (Speakers Corner)

    Question: What is whiter than white? There's only one answer: Winter - Edgar Winter. While his equally pale-faced brother Johnny turned towards black music with a country-blues touch (Columbia KCS 9949 and CS 9826), Edgar was inspired by the traditional big-band sound. The brotherly link paid off, for it freed the talented Edgar from having to make strenuous appearances at night in clubs and gave him the chance to join his older brother in the recording studio.


    After his successful debut release Entrance, Winter gathered an all-star band around him and entered the studio to record White Trash, which landed a smash hit on the US charts. And no wonder - for these soul rockers give everything in a unique mixture of funk, blues and rock 'n' roll. Right from the first number Give It Everything You Got, a broadly striding rock title with brass, the whole album is bursting with energy and a great atmosphere. Wiry blues with meaty vocals enough to make your hair curl (I've Got News For You) is followed by the demand - in meaty, snapped phrases - for cheerful rock 'n' roll (Keep Playin' That Rock And Roll). And let's not forget the sometimes madly intertwined solo parts, where the musicians really let off steam. A true celebration of rock 'n' roll.

    Musicians:



    • Edgar Winter (vocal, piano, organ, alto saxophone)

    • Jerry laCroix (vocal, tenor saxophone, harp)

    • Floyd Radford (guitar)

    • Johnny Winter (guitar)

    • Rick Derringer (guitar)

    • Jon Smith (vocal, tenor saxophone)

    • Mike McLellan (vocal, trumpet)

    • George Sheck (bass)

    • Bobby Ramirez(drums)

    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.

    Local Customs: Lone Star Lowlands

    The second in Numeros series of peeks into the world of regional studios hones in on Mickey Rouses Lowland operation out of Beaumont, Texas. Long after the Boppers plane crashed and the Winter brothers (Johnny and Edgar) and Janis Joplin split, Texas Golden Triangle was home to a vibrant scene of musicians, songwriters, and entrepreneurs just trying to make it in Houston, let alone the world.


    From the ashes of a vibrant garage and stage band scene, the Lowland studio and its clientele were formed. Holed up in a rundown strip mall, groups like Mourning Sun, Insight Out, Sage, Sassy, Mother Lion, Hope, Circus, and Boot Hill tracked out hundreds of demos, most of which were put on the shelf and left to bake in the South East Texas heat. Until now.


    Over the last two years, Numero has painstakingly gone through every tape in the studios archives, selecting the best of the best (28 for this 2xLP) for this peerless compilation. The songs themselves run the gamut; southern boogie rock, CSNY clones, British blues thunder, garage-psych hangovers, Morricone-esque supper club instrumentals, yacht rock, and what can only be described as Bobby McPherin fronting the Velvet Underground, are threaded together in the way only a tightly-knit scene can be. Forget bringing these treasures back to life, Numeros giving them the life they never had.

    Second Winter

    In 1969, with several albums already under his belt in a short time like The Progressive Blues Experiment, Johnny Winter headed down south to Nashville and recorded what many believe to be one of his finest albums to date, Second Winter. The album features the original line up of Johnny Winter (vocals/guitars) Edgar Winter (keys and saxophone), Tommy Shannon (bass) and Uncle John Turner (drums). This power quartet laid down some of the finest rock and roll and blues performances ever caught in a studio setting, as well as forever etching the name superstar to Johnny Winters career.


    Always an avid audiophile and record collector himself, during the original recording sessions, Johnny believed that all the tracks would sound better if spread out over an extra side, instead of the traditional two sided LP, therefore creating the infamous and probably first three sided rock album in history! He summed it up perfectly We also really liked everything wed done and didnt want to leave any of the songs out. We couldnt honesty give you more, and we didnt want to give you less, so here is exactly what we did in Nashville, no more and no less.


    Its no secret that Friday Music has been championing this acclaimed world class artist for years now with his own authorized and top blues charting Live Bootleg Series projects, as well as classic vinyl re-releases from the Columbia and Capitol Records vaults. It is now with great pleasure they announe the continuing Johnny Winter 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his phenomenal earth shaking Second Winter album. Mastered from the original Columbia Records tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI, this incredible limited edition album comes full circle now in its first time audiophile vinyl domain release.


    All his greatest hits are here like Johnny B. Goode, Miss Ann, Fast Life Rider and of course his classic interpretation of Bob Dylans scorching Highway 61 Revisited. A visionary always with each and every one of his releases, Johnny Winter put his all into this album which showed an appreciation to his rock and roll heroes like Chuck Berry and Little Richard, his contemporaries like Bob Dylan, while also being a cultural icon in the psychedelic era solely with his Texan slide and unparalleled blues playing, an unforgettable rock voice, and a fan base that just keeps growing every day.


    Fellow legend and brother Edgar Winter and the rest of the band truly excel throughout this entire album as well, on tunes sweltering blues workouts like Memory Pain, I Hate Everybody and the incredible jam Hustled Down In Texas.


    Friday Music has also included the long out of print original gatefold album cover designed by Tony Lane, as well as the fine photography of Richard Avedon.

    Johnny Winter And Live

    Mastered from the Original Columbia Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray


    There are live albums, and then there are definitive live albums from the classic rock era which were events on their release. Johnny Winter And Live is one of those rare releases. Recorded during his short-lived and much revered Johnny Winter And era, this early supergroup with Rick Derringer (The McCoys, Edgar Winter Group, Steely Dan), Randy Jo Hobbs (The McCoys /Johnny Winter) and Bobby Caldwell (Captain Beyond) were known for their incredible live rock performances. Two of these phenomenal shows are captured on this historical rock album.


    Bill Grahams Fillmore East in NYC and Pirates World in Florida were the settings for this live extravaganza, featuring stunning renditions of blues classics Good Morning Little School Girl and of course B.B. Kings Its My Own Fault. As a nod to his favorite rock and rollers, Johnny even found the energy for more foot stompin interpretations of tracks which became his own definitive versions like The Rolling Stones Jumpin Jack Flash and the legendary Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry. This album was so jam packed with excitement that rock radio at the time would play the entire album sides because of the ground breaking performances contained within the grooves.


    Friday Music announces another installment of their Johnny Winter 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his gold album Johnny Winter And Live.

    Second Winter (Speakers Corner)

    Johnny Winter released the album Second Winter, a passionate and fervent collection of songs, just a few months after his record debut. This legendary band's steadfast commitment to blues is apparent in every single note they play, although tender emotions are all the more discernible in hard, rock'n'roll-like outbursts than ever before. Winter blends his crystal-clear, unmannered guitar playing with the gravelly charm of his raspy voice to produce a compact sound in which both his own compositions and old favourites (Johnny B. Goode) are revived. It is quite clear that the white shooting star is on a par with the giants of blues as far as vocals and guitar playing are concerned.
    It is often speculated over as to whether Johnny's new ideas were simply too numerous for a single LP, or whether the producers thought they were not quite sufficient for a double LP. Whatever the answer, the original was released as a three-sided album, with a blank fourth side! In order to fill the album with fiery rock'n'roll, a new production with the 45 rpm versions of Miss Ann, Hustled Down In Texas, and Highway 61 Revisited is now included on the fourth side. It goes without saying that alongside the present double LP Winter's audiophile first release (Columbia CS 9826) is available from Speakers Corner, too.



    Musicians:



    • Johnny Winter (guitar, mandolin, vocal)

    • Edgar Winter (piano, alto saxophone, organ, harpsichord)

    • Tommy Shannon, Dennis Collins (bass)

    • 'Uncle' John Turner (percussion)

    Johnny Winter (Speakers Corner)

    When an international weekly magazine calls a musician the »white pope of black art«, then it sounds suspiciously like charitableness towards a blues musician in his prime, whose good years are in the past. As if! In the case of Johnny Winter, the reviews of his 2011 tour were just as glowing as in his early years, when Rolling Stone magazine described the gaunt Mississippi bard as »a cross-eyed albino with long fleecy hair playing some of the gutsiest fluid blues guitar you have ever heard«. Intentional or not: Winter was able to win for himself some of the 'rocker' laurels that were reserved for the young Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. But Winter let everyone know that he was only interested in the blues, gutsy, evoking Howlin' Wolf's and Muddy Waters' growling groove, yet nimble-fingered enough on the strings to conjure up astoundingly sleek garlands of sound that fit precisely into each bar of music.



    Winter remains pretty cool when people attempt to identify personal afflictions in his music: When I play blues, I feel good he stated recently to a journalist. That the same goes for over 40 years ago is substantiated by both sides of this debut album.

    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.

    10X10 (Pre-Order)

    Before his untimely death in 2012, renowned American rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose began recording an ambitious passion project with bassist Ricky Phillips (Styx, Bad English) and drummer Eric Singer (Kiss, Alice Cooper). The idea was to record 10 songs with 10 different singers and call the album 10X10. Sadly, Montrose was unable to see the album through during his lifetime. Instead, Phillips made it his mission to finish the songs by enlisting a small army of Ronnie's musician friends to record the vocals and the guitar solos for each song, completing the album in recent years.


    Phillips says the songs represent some of Montrose's best work. "His songs still have the fire and angst of a young rebel, but with some added wisdom and foresight voiced in his own unique language of 'guitar-speak.' On 10X10, we hear Ronnie at the top of his game, from the opening crunch guitar of 'Heavy Traffic,' all the way to the closing song, 'I'm Not Lying,' which was Ronnie's tip of the hat to his friend Robin Trower."


    10X10 features inspired pairings, like Deep Purple singer Glenn Hughes with Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen ("Still Singin' With The Band") and singer Sammy Hagar with Toto guitarist Steve Lukather ("Color Blind"). Legendary blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa also showcases his guitar talents on the track "The Kingdom's Come Undone" with Ricky Phillips on vocals. A few artists both sing and play, like Edgar Winter ("Love Is An Art") and Tommy Shaw ("Strong Enough").


    Several artists who appear on 10X10 had recorded with Ronnie during his career, like Edgar Winter, who included the guitarist on his 1972 album, They Only Come Out At Night. Sammy Hagar got his start singing with Montrose. Between 1973-75, he recorded two influential albums - Montrose and Paper Money - with the band and toured the world.
    More than 40 years later, Hagar was among the first who agreed to help finish Ronnie's final album. "It's valuable to have 10X10 be seen as Ronnie's last work, rather than going and digging up some stuff from his past. This was something he truly had a vision for," says Hagar.

    Tell 'Em I'm Gone


    First Album In Five Years From The 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee


    10 Brand-New Recordings, Including 5 New Compositions By Yusuf


    Features Collaborations With Rick Rubin, Richard Thompson, Charlie Musselwhite, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Tinariwen, And Matt Sweeney


    Tell 'Em I'm Gone is the first new Yusuf album since 2009's
    acclaimed Roadsinger. Recorded all over the world,
    including Los Angeles, Dubai, Brussels, and London, the
    album features 10 brand-new studio recordings, including five
    originals and five carefully-chosen cover songs. Tell 'Em I'm
    Gone features musical contributions from Richard Thompson,
    blues harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite, singer-songwriter
    Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Tuareg group Tinariwen, and guitarist
    Matt Sweeney, as well as production from Rick Rubin.


    Each track on Tell 'Em I'm Gone is threaded together by the
    themes of freedom and peace that have prevailed through more
    than four decades of Yusuf's musical career. On this album,
    Yusuf returns to the roots of his musical inspiration: American
    blues and R&B, using these genres to explore the universality
    of the desire for freedom with songs that recall the spirit of his
    earliest days as a nascent singer-songwriter in London.


    "What's powerful and profound, to me, is the overall message
    which emerged, lyrically," Yusuf says of the new album.
    "It suddenly stared me in the face: the struggle for Freedom!
    My God, isn't that what most human beings dream of?


    "I hope this record will help revive the spirit of Freedom
    and re-kindle some of the excitement of those amazing days,
    when every musical door seemed to point us a way out of our
    imprisonment," Yusuf says.


    Stunning originals like "I Was Raised In Babylon" and "Cat And
    The Dog Trap" plus covers of blues-pop standards ("Big Boss
    Man," "You Are My Sunshine") and a moving version of Edgar
    Winter's "Dying To Live" find Yusuf as strong of voice and as
    engaging a performer as ever before.


    Having first found fame as a teenage folk singer in 1960s
    England, Cat Stevens gained worldwide acclaim for his
    intimate and affecting works in the 1970s. His compositions
    "Wild World," "Peace Train," "Father and Son" and "Morning
    Has Broken" remain staples of the folk genre. Following a
    conversion to the Islamic faith in 1978, Stevens retired from
    the music business to pursue important causes in the
    Muslim community; 2006 saw Yusuf's celebrated return to pop
    music with the album An Other Cup.
