    Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2


    The Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrate The 55th Anniversary Of 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong!


    First Time Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation!!!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and
    as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few
    dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.


    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term
    deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the
    most successful solo artist of all time!


    For the remainder of the 1950's, Elvis Presley would release several more hit albums, smash singles and movies before spending time in the
    Army. Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, RCA Victor awarded their superstar artist and his fans with the King's second greatest hits
    collection Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2, also known as 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong.


    Featuring a treasure trove of his most familiar top charting hit singles Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2 went on to become one of his most
    memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful rock and roll albums, as well as one of the most copied album covers of all time.


    Thanks to his finest rock smashes like Wear My Ring Around Your Neck, A Fool Such As I, I Got Stung and A Big Hunk O' Love, this collection of
    Elvis Presley's biggest hits were just what the fans were screaming for, and the entire album was built around the framework of his rocking trademark
    sound. The 1959 album also was another blockbuster for The King as it topped the upper rungs of the pop charts, making this one of his biggest
    albums of his career as well as one of his most revered. Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2 truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in
    music history.


    Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2 also included some of his finest ballads like Don't, My Wish Came True and the soulful Doncha' Think It's Time,
    plus more top rock and roll hits like I Need Your Love Tonight, and I Beg of You. In total, the album showcases ten important Elvis Presley hit recordings
    which have truly gone on to become definitive classics by any measure of popular music.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the first time limited
    55th Anniversary Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2 - 50,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong

    Elvis Presley: Gold Records Vol. 4 (Speakers Corner)

    At first sight, it does not look as though Elvis's 31st album was destined to be a hit. But if you take a look at his artistic biography in the year of its release - 1968 - then you will recognise the clever gimmicks that his wide-awake management employed to captivate rock 'n' roll fans when Elvis was somewhat 'stiff in the hips'. In this fourth Gold Edition, a tried and tested method was used to create a new LP: namely, a compilation of single hits from the years 1961 to 1967. The result was just what fans wanted! Alongside sentimental songs such as Love Letters, the tearjerker Lonely Man and the sobbing, heartstring tugging ballad It Hurts Me, we find spirited rock 'n' roll (Witchcraft, Ain't That Loving You Baby) and honky-tonk blues (A Mess Of Blues) in a toned-down 12-beat measure. In contrast, Don't Drag That String Around is cheerful, light and springy and, - for a change - not a blues number.
    Then we have the country song Devil In Disguise with its angry lyrics, and the soul title What'd I Say by Ray Charles with an electric sound that is lent by the Rhodes piano. All in all, this LP is a great collection from the grand old days of rock 'n' roll.



    Musicians:



    • Elvis Presley (guitar, vocal)

    • The Jordanaires (vocal)

    • and various bands




    Recordings: Juyl 1960 - June 1966 at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee, RCA Studios and Radio Recorders in Hollywood

    Production: Steve Sholes, Chet Atkins, George Stoll, Felton Jarvis, a.o.


    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.

    Elvis' Golden Records No. 1 (Speakers Corner)

    Have we got the lot? The King of Rock'n'Roll certainly didn't need to ask whether his entourage had collected together all their favourite hits. They had gathered them all together - a collection of Golden Records, rather like a selection box of favourite chocolates, greedily swallowed down and enjoyed to the full. And how they loved them all - whether 'complete works' collectors or fans. To this very day, this collection from 1958 is quite set apart from the normal 'best of' collections. It shines out like a precious jewel among mere pebbles. This was the first of four Gold volumes, and it set the standard for those to come. Before any of the immemorable songs came to be included, they had to have sold at least a million copies and won an undeniable and unforgettable reputation as a heart-string plucker. To name a title is more than superfluous. It's quite enough just to listen and enjoy. Whoever wants the ultimate basic Elvis collection can't go wrong here.

    40 Years Later..... The King Of Rock And Roll Lives On!

    Friday Music Is Proud To Present His 1959 Rock & Rhythm & Blues Masterpiece Elvis Is Back

    First Time 180 Gram Translucent Blue Vinyl & Original Gatefold Cover Art & Original Front Cover Sticker Art

    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso & Pressed At R.T.I.

    Features His Classic Hits: Such A Night, Fever, Make Me Know It, The Girl Of My Best Friend, Reconsider Baby, Soldier Boy

    Elvis Is Back! is the tenth studio album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley. It was originally released on RCA Victor Records in April 1960. Recorded over two sessions in March and April, the album marked Presley's return to recording after his discharge from the U.S. Army.

    In 1957, as Presley's fame was soaring, he received a draft notice from the Memphis Draft Board, but was given a deferment so he could finish his latest film production, King Creole. During Presley's two-year military service in Germany, RCA Victor and Paramount Pictures progressively released material he had completed prior to enlistment. During his last months in the Army, Presley experimented with new sounds and worked on further improving his performance. He also prepared material for his first session in Nashville, which was scheduled to take place upon his return. Presley returned to the United States on March 2, 1960. The singer reunited with his original band The Blue Moon Boys, excepting bassist Bill Black. The first session was held on March 20-21 and the second session was held on April 3-4, completing the album.

    Elvis Is Back! topped the UK Albums Chart and reached number two in Billboard's Top LPs. Initially, the release received mixed reviews, but over subsequent years its critical reception became progressively more positive. The album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1999.

    Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden

    Of all the live concert recordings released during Elvis Presley's lifetime, none carried the historical significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June of 1972. His first performances in the Big Apple since the '50s, the 'King of Rock 'n' Roll' performed four sold-out shows at the famed venue, the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972 and sold in excess of 80,000 tickets in the process.

    A Date With Elvis (Mono) (Speakers Corner)

    Good products are worth their weight in gold when times are a little harsh - and this album was certainly a genially placed stopgap. In 1959, at the time when RCA launched this record on the market, the label's shining rock star was out of the country doing his military service in good old Germany. In order to comfort all his fans during his forced absence, the record bosses produced an album with a smartly uniformed Elvis on the cover, smiling widely to let his faithful followers know that he'd be back soon. There was a special calendar too, so that his fans could count off the days until his return. This marketing ploy was extremely successful. The record became a highly desirable collector's item and even years later illegal dollars still flowed from pirate copies.
    The RCA producers kept mum about when and where the tracks were recorded. But who cares about that when listening to Elvis giving the 'blue grass' classic Blue Moon Of Kentucky his unmistakable, rockabilly sound? The other titles, all of them performed by a well-proven ensemble of rock-'n'-roll musicians, are filled with the honest, powerful language of the young - or from today's viewpoint, old - Elvis. Which takes us back full circle to the date. What better way is there to celebrate the 50th birthday of rock-'n'-roll than with this early album by its 'King'?

    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.

    Elvis-NBC TV Special


    The Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrating The 45th Anniversary Of The NBC TV Special "1968 Comeback" Soundtrack Album!


    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as
    a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys.
    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the
    legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King of Rock and Roll" trademark to his name.


    Over the next three decades, Elvis Presley would release dozens of hit albums and tons of smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in over 35
    top charting films, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all time. In 1968, after a
    series of very successful movies and top charting recordings, Elvis made a wise decision to work with the folks at NBC and develop a Christmas TV special,
    which would have The King perform in front of a live studio audience for the first time in years.
    This legendary career move spread like wildfire and soon was hailed as "The Comeback," further igniting his career to an all new high. The King
    took his shows to the theatres and casinos and super massive stadium tours over the next number of years, while releasing a plethora of even more gold
    and platinum recordings


    With the soundtrack album nearing release, it was already gaining popularity in advance thanks to the chart single smash If I Can Dream. This
    masterwork album included a treasure trove of rare television studio performances that captured a very great time in the musical history of this genius.
    In addition to the wonderful hit single aforementioned, The King reaches back to his early Memphis days with his first chart topper Heartbreak
    Hotel and more fifties classics like Lawdy Miss Clawdy, All Shook Up and even a pair of Jimmy Reed blues classics with Big Boss Man and Baby, What
    You Want Me to Do.


    Even more hit tracks and sensational medleys featuring Elvis classics abound including Guitar Man, Blue Christmas, Love Me Tender and Can't
    Help Falling in Love. Plus the beautiful ballad Memories is also included which has since become an Elvis fan favorite thanks to the wonderful production
    on this brilliant album.
    Elvis Presley's TV Special album would go on to become one of his biggest albums ever, as fans rushed to the stores to buy this stunning rock and
    roll soundtrack back in December of 1968. Initially pressed on vinyl, this amazing album has been out of print on vinyl for several decades that is until
    now!


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King of Rock and Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the 45th Anniversary
    Limited Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Records classic Elvis - TV Special by Elvis Presley.

    I Aubade

    This new work comes as something of a departure from his previous releases on XL Recordings. Whereas Ash Wednesday (2007) would not have been itself without the guidance of friend and producer Ethan Gold, and the eponymous Elvis Perkins in Dearland and subsequent Doomsday EP (2009) were group efforts, I Aubade was on the whole an autonomous project. 'I had the impulse to hear what would happen if left to and with my own devices', says Perkins. 'Not surprisingly this is the thing that sounds the most, to me, like myself.'


    That said, a number of musicians, including Nick Kinsey and Wyndham Boylan-Garnett of Dearland, drummer Otto Hauser and multi-instrumentalist Frank Fairfield contributed to the album. Singer Cornelia Livingston is featured on several tracks and long time collaborator Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond makes an appearance as well.


    The mixing was done by Jesse Lauter with Elvis Perkins and Alan Silverman mastered. It will be manufactured and distributed by the music division of Isolation Network, INgrooves. Mr. Perkins will be touring in support of the new album in the spring of 2015.

    Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite

    40th Anniversary of the Historic #1 LP/Televised 1973 Concert!

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray from the Original RCA Records Tapes & Manufactured at RTI!

    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early-'50s, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known. The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single "Heartbreak Hotel" forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name.


    Over the next three decades, Elvis Presley would release dozens of hit albums and tons of smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in over 35 top charting films, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all time. In 1968, his career ignited even further thanks to his Elvis TV Special on NBC and another series of hit singles and career making albums like his country soul smash From Elvis In Memphis.


    As the '70s began, Elvis was selling out shows all around the country and began to plan out a series of groundbreaking performances in Hawaii. His show on January 14, 1973 was broadcast live via satellite across over forty countries and would become the most watched televised event by a solo artist in history. It's been said that over one billion viewers enjoyed his incredible concert! The show was choreographed and staged like nothing ever before and featured a multitude of musicians, the Hawaiian Islands, the appreciative and excited audience, and of course, The King Of Rock And Roll himself Elvis Presley.


    The multi-platinum Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite set also was a blockbuster as it hit the top #1 spot on the charts in 1973, making this one of the biggest albums of his career as well as one of the most revered live concert albums of all time proving once again Elvis Presley's career was unlike any other in music history. This live masterpiece takes off with the Memphis blues rocker "See See Rider" and his huge '70 hit "Burning Love." He follows these up with his tip of the hat to his friends The Beatles with the soulful balladry of "Something." More of Elvis' own favorites follow with the Hank Williams' ballad "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and his rockin' interpretation of Chuck Berry's classic "Johnny B. Goode."


    The album also features a nice helping of solid Elvis top chart hits like "Blue Suede Shoes," "Hound Dog," "A Big Hunk Of Love" and his smash single interpretation of James Taylor's "Steamroller Blues." As a tribute to his Hawaii audience, the ever thoughtful King Of Rock And Roll closed the show with his masterpiece "Can't Help Falling In Love" from his film Blue Hawaii. In total, the album showcases a very historic Elvis Presley performance which has truly gone onto become the definitive live concert album in his amazing catalog of hit gold and platinum recordings.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the limited edition 40th Anniversary deluxe two album 180 gram audiophile vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite by Elvis Presley.

    Division Street (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    Division Street is Harper Simon's follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut album. It is a departure for Simon: it features a sound that's much more driven by electric guitars than his alt country-flavored debut. The mission was to make the kind of Rock 'n' Roll record I would want to listen to myself, he says. Which sounds simple but is, in fact, incredibly difficult.


    Simon co-produced Division Street with Tom Rothrock, who produced three albums for Elliot Smith (Either/Or, XO and Figure 8) and Beck's first album Mellow Gold, among others. As the team worked, the album's sound grew rougher around the edges. I felt challenged and inspired by the idea of making a modern psychedelic folk-rock album, a Tom Rothrock production like XO, but then the Velvet Underground and the Stones kept entering in, says Simon. Elliot Smith was very influenced by the Beatles but my guitar playing is more influenced by Keith Richards. And I kept wanting to emphasize more lo-fi elements.


    Division Street was recorded with a small coterie of guest musicians, including Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello's Attractions on drums, Nikolai Fraiture from the Strokes on bass, vocals by Inara George, Feist's musical director Brian LeBarton playing synths, as well as Nate Walcott from Bright Eyes and Wilco's Mikael Jorgensen. I'm very lucky, says Simon. Everybody that we asked to come and guest on the record showed up.

    Quicksilver Messenger Service (Pure Pleasure)

    Quicksilver Messenger Service's debut effort was a little more restrained and folky than some listeners had expected, given their reputation for stretching out in concert. While some prefer the mostly live Happy Trails, this self-titled collection is inarguably their strongest set of studio material, with the accent on melodic folk-rock. Highlights include their cover of folksinger Hamilton Camp's Pride of Man, probably their best studio track; Light Your Windows, probably the group's best original composition; and founding member Dino Valenti's Dino's Song (Valenti himself was in jail when the album was recorded). Gold And Silver is their best instrumental jam, and the 12-minute The Fool reflects some of the best and worst traits of the psychedelic era.

    Stone Flower (Speakers Corner)

    Around the year 1970, almost everything appeared to have been said about the style of music over the past two decades, which was a mix of samba and cool jazz. Adventurous musicians such as Luis Bonfa, Baden Powell, Charly Byrd, João and Astrud Gilberto, and the saxophonist Stan Getz lent fire and sentiment to the "new trend". First and foremost among them was Carlos Antonio Jobim, whose catchy tunes such as the ticking, shuffling song Desafinado and the genial One Note Samba were heard all over the globe.
    That the man from Ipanema still had a lot to say is proved by the present album, which presents Jobim's creativity at the height of his maturity. Right from the very first number, where Urbie Green on the trombone 'sings' Tereza My Love so purely in the top register, it is clear that the late bossa with its typical rhythm is structurally far more refined than the early hot dance numbers. The melodies are woven through, as it were, with shining gold and silver threads of rhythm, and clusters of sound are light and airy. However, here and there, the musicians let their hair down, such as in the Latin classic Brazil.



    With that magician of sound Deodato as arranger and conductor, and Rudy van Gelder as recording engineer, this LP is certainly a Bossa masterpiece. There's no more to be said!



    Musicians:



    • Antonio Carlos Jobim (piano, electric piano, violin, vocal, guitar)

    • Joe Farrell (soprano saxophone)

    • Urbie Green (trombone)

    • Hubert Laws (flute)

    • Eumir Deodato (guitar, arranger, conductor)

    • Harry Lookofsky (violin)

    • Ron Carter (bass)

    • Airto Moreira, Everaldo Ferreira (percussion)

    • João Palma (drums)



    Recording: June 1970 at Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA

    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.

    Johnny Cash was born during the great depression into a poor family in Arkansas. At a very young age, he worked on the family farm and experienced many of life's struggles. This is also the time he would develop his love for music, family and the Bible, which followed him closely throughout his long career.

    In the early fifties after spending time in the Air Force, he moved to Memphis, became friends with folks like Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, and ultimately cut some sides at Sun Studios which became the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar, troubadour and humanitarian unlike the world has ever known.

    The folks at Columbia Records knew that this young fellow named Johnny Cash was destined for super stardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first singles like his Guess Things Happen That Way & Hey Porter etched The Man In Black trademark to his name.

    In 1971 after many chart-topping country and pop albums and a bevy of hit singles and Grammy Awards, more fame followed as the brass at Columbia Records honored their journeyman Johnny Cash with his 2nd greatest hits collection, the gold and platinum smash Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits Volume II.

    The album was a blockbuster as it hit the Top 5 in the charts, making this a crossover hit with both country and pop audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit. Filled with more hits than a roadside jukebox, the amazing album features his biggest hits like the groundbreaking Folsom Prison Blues and his Shel Silverstein classic A Boy Named Sue. The classic top charter duet with June Carter Cash If I Were A Carpenter is also included, followed up by one of his finest interpretations of his dear friend Kris Kristofferson's Sunday Mornin' Comin'Down.

    More treasures follow with the country belter Big River and Cash's gospel smash of Daddy Sang Bass, which truly continues the treasure trove of hits contained in this masterwork.

    In total, the album showcases eleven important Johnny Cash recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time.

    In honor of the Man, the Music and the Legend, Friday Music is very honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent Blue Vinyl release of the Columbia Records classic Johnny Cash Greatest Hits Volume II by Johnny Cash.

    Howard Tate

    Singer Howard Tate cracked the R&B Top 20 three times in the late 1960s, left music and endured hardship and anonymity for nearly 30 years and beginning in the early 2000s returned to his rightful place as one of America's most revered soul performers.


    Tate was born in Macon, Georgia, in 1939 and moved with his family to Philadelphia as a young boy. In his teens, he joined a north Philadelphia gospel group, the Gainors, that also featured to-be star Garnet Mimms. The group recorded in the early 1960s for Mercury Records and Cameo Records before Tate left to become the featured singer of organist Bill Doggett's group.


    In the mid-'60s, Mimms urged producer Jerry Ragovoy to check out Tate, and from 1966 to 1969 Tate and Ragovoy recorded about 10 singles, the first for the Utopia label, the rest for Verve. Ain't Nobody Home (1966), Look At Granny Run Run (1966) and Stop (1967), all written or co-written by Ragovoy, each charted R&B Top 20. But to rock audiences, Tate was best known as the original performer of Get It While You Can, which became one of Janis Joplin's signature tunes. Tate's debut album, Get It While You Can, was released in 1966 to tremendous acclaim. Rolling Stone called the album a spectacular showcase of suave, muscular good-powered singing, heavily influenced by Sam Cooke, with a joyous, shrieking falsetto that became Tate's trademark.


    Tate recorded a few more singles for Lloyd Price's label, Turntable, before reuniting briefly with Ragovoy for sessions on Atlantic. After one more single on Epic in 1974, Tate all but vanished. Despite his success, he was unhappy with how the music business was treating him, never having seen any royalties.


    Tate sold securities in the New Jersey and Philadelphia areas into the 1980s when he succumbed to substance abuse and endured a very tumultuous period of homelessness and personal loss. He turned his life around and began work as a minister and counselor in the early 1990s. Then in 2001, a musician Tate had toured with back in the 1960s saw him in a supermarket and within hours Tate's old producer, Jerry Ragovoy, was calling, resulting in a return to the studio for the Grammy-nominated Rediscovered. He followed up with Howard Tate Live in 2006, A Portrait Of Howard - with guests Lou Reed, Carla Bley and Larry Goldings - in 2007 and Blue Day in 2008.


    Music luminaries have recognized and celebrated Tate's trademark voice throughout the years, with Elvis Costello calling him the missing link between Jackie Wilson and Al Green. Among the well-known musicians that have covered songs originally recorded by Tate are Joplin (Get It While You Can), Jimi Hendrix (Stop), Hugh Masekela (Stop), B.B. King (Ain't Nobody Home), Ry Cooder (Look At Granny Run Run) and Grand Funk Railroad (Look At Granny Run Run).

    Couldn't Stand The Weather (Pure Pleasure)

    With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80's. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush, and Muddy Waters and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late '60s. For the next seven years, Stevie Ray was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll.

    Musicians:



    • Stevie Ray Vaughan (vocal, guitar)

    • Jimmie Vaughan (guitar)

    • Stan Harrison (tenor saxophone)

    • Tommy Shannon (bass)

    • Chris "Whipper" Layton, Fran Christina (drums)



    Format: 2LPs 33rpm / standard sleeve
