Enter The 36'
Enter The Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers)Ranked 386/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Along with Dr. Dre's The Chronic, the Wu-Tang Clan's debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), was one of the most influential rap albums of the '90s. Its spare yet atmospheric production -- courtesy of RZA -- mapped out the sonic blueprint that countless other hardcore rappers would follow for years to come. It laid the groundwork for the rebirth of New York hip-hop in the hardcore age, paving the way for everybody from Biggie and Jay-Z to Nas and Mobb Deep. Moreover, it introduced a colorful cast of hugely talented MCs, some of whom ranked among the best and most unique individual rappers of the decade. Some were outsized, theatrical personalities, others were cerebral storytellers and lyrical technicians, but each had his own distinctive style, which made for an album of tremendous variety and consistency. Every track on Enter the Wu-Tang is packed with fresh, inventive rhymes, which are filled with martial arts metaphors, pop culture references (everything from Voltron to Lucky Charms cereal commercials to Barbra Streisand's The Way We Were), bizarre threats of violence, and a truly twisted sense of humor. Their off-kilter menace is really brought to life, however, by the eerie, lo-fi production, which helped bring the raw sound of the underground into mainstream hip-hop. Starting with a foundation of hard, gritty beats and dialogue samples from kung fu movies, RZA kept things minimalistic, but added just enough minor-key piano, strings, or muted horns to create a background ambience that works like the soundtrack to a surreal nightmare. There was nothing like it in the hip-hop world at the time, and even after years of imitation, Enter the Wu-Tang still sounds fresh and original. Subsequent group and solo projects would refine and deepen this template, but collectively, the Wu have never been quite this tight again. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide1. Bring Da Ruckus

Return To The 36 Chambers (Dirty Version)Insert
Contains 2 Bonus Tracks: Dirty Dancin' and Harlem World
Ol' Dirty Bastard rose to fame in the world renowned Hip Hop gang Wu-Tang Clan. His vocal input in Wu-Tang's Enter The Wu-Tang added comic relief and unpredictability to the overt gangsta lyrics, so when producer RZA worked with him to capitalize on his unique style on his own solo album, ODB jumped (probably literally) at the chance.
Return To The 36 Chambers (1995) is chock full of his rants, growls, schtick and off-beat rhymes. After release, Shimmy Shimmy Ya and Brooklyn Zoo quickly became true Hip Hop classics. An entertainer in his own right, ODB was perhaps one of the realest rappers out there, and unfortunately died in his prime in 2004.

Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty VersionIt's safe to say that hip-hop has never seen an album like Ol' Dirty Bastard's 1995 solo debut Return to the 36 Chambers. The brief glimpses of ODB's unhinged genius provided by Wu-Tang Clan's landmark Enter the Wu-Tang album two years earlier were begging to be expanded on to a larger canvas, and, with RZA guiding production, the album promised to give Dirty the creative license to make one of the most bizarre, entertaining and original LPs in hip-hop history. With his raspy, drunken flow and dark sense of humor, Dirty fearlessly attacks from all angles, throwing himself fearlessly into punchy rhyme attacks (Damage, with GZA), drugged-out party jams (the monster singles Brooklyn Zoo and Shimmy Shimmy Ya) and bizarre, grimly hilarious fantasies of sex and violence (Don't U Know and the R&B-tinged Sweet Sugar Pie). Backed by RZA's appropriately gritty, dissonant beats and appearances from the Clan, Return became an instant hit, selling over 1 million copies and earning a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album in 1996. The album stands as a high water mark in the Wu-Tang Clan's collective creative output and was selected as one of the Best 100 Rap Albums by The Source magazine in 1998. In honoring the legacy of one of hip-hop's most innovative releases, Get On Down is proud to present this incredible and unique special edition of Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version on double LP.LP1

Bulletproof Wallets180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
Featuring Method Man, Slick Rick, RZA, Ginuwine, Raekwon
Ghostface Killah is an American rapper and critically acclaimed for his loud, fast-paced flow and his colorful storytelling rap. His stage name was taken from one of the characters in the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing and he is the founder of his own label Starks Enterprises.
He was a prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan and after the group achieved breakthrough success in the aftermath of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the members went on to pursue solo careers on which Ghostface Killah was the most successful one of the group.
The rapper started off his solo-career with Ironman in 1996, which was well received by music critics. He has continued his success over the following years with critically acclaimed albums such as Supreme Clientele (2000), Bulletproof Wallets (2001) and Fishscale (2006).
Bulletproof Wallets is the third studio album by Ghostface Killah. Its feature single, Never Be the Same Again, featured Carl Thomas and Raekwon.

The Sacred Heart SessionsThe Lowest Pair features the duel banjo picking of Kendl Winter and
Palmer T. Lee. Draped in Kendl's high lonesome harmonies and Palmer's
Midwest croon, their debut release, 36¢, (Team Love Records) was
hailed by many outlets and American Songwriter praised their earnest,
earthy songcraft. Team Love will release their
sophomore album, The Sacred Heart Sessions.
Arkansas-born and now homesteading in Olympia, Washington, Kendl
Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van and
spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Kendl
brings to The Lowest Pair her wonderfully weaving poetry of song, old
and new, and a voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent
with a little Olympia twist. Palmer T. Lee who hails from Minneapolis was
nineteen years old when he inherited a couple of banjos and discovered
he could reassemble them into his dream instrument. Former front man
for the much loved high energy bluegrass band The Boys n' the
Barrels, Palmer's songs are distilled into the warm sweet sounds of his
percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style
played on a pieced together banjo.
After nearly a year of traveling the country playing clubs, hotels, house
shows, back yards and street corners, they found their way back up to
Minnesota, this time to Duluth where they sat down to record the followup
to 36¢. Linking up with Tom Fabjance at an old church seemed like
the perfect way to expand on their sound without diluting their original
magical formula. The Sacred Heart Sessions is an album that allows the
listening to enter the space that surrounds its creation. One can virtually
feel the walls and vaulted ceiling of the old wooden church rising up,
creating a natural reverb and warming the air.
Be it Kendl's punk roots, her admiration for the traditional American
songbook, or the gravitational pull she sensed drawing her to Olympia,
it's her combining these talents and creative impulses with Palmer's
Midwestern charm, the long winters spent listening to a steady diet of
Townes Van Zandt and John Hartford and the strange moment of fate
that left him with two inherited banjos as a young man; this combination
has resulted in a uniquely original sound that is The Lowest Pair.1. Ruben's Fortune

SeesawSeesaw reunites force-of-nature blues-rock vocalist Beth Hart and guitar hero Joe Bonamassa for a second album of choice covers from various musical eras. As with their first outing, Don't Explain, the project is in collaboration with producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Black Crowes). Each of the three principals suggested and selected tracks for the 11-song set list, which mines soulful classics previously made famous by Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Donnie Hathaway, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miles, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Melody Gardot, and Nina Simone.
The one-two punch of Hart's powerhouse vocals and Bonamassa's scorching solos both honors and reinvents the original recordings. They are backed by the same world class band that kept the grooves going on Don't Explain: Anton Fig (drums, percussion), Carmine Rojas (bass), Blondie Chaplin (rhythm guitar, backing vocals and percussion), Arlan Schierbaum (organ, piano). This time out, their mighty sound is augmented by a horn section, with Lee Thornburg on trumpets and trombones, and Ron Dziubla on saxophones.
For Hart and Bonamassa, making music together grew out of the friendship and mutual artistic appreciation they developed after crossing paths on the road numerous times, particularly on the festival circuit in Europe. Bonamassa wanted to do a project with her, and came up with the idea for a soul covers record. Shirley, who's produced 12 of Bonamassa's albums, was enthusiastic, and Bonamassa contacted Hart. "When I got the call that he wanted to do a soul record with me, I figured I'd be the background singer. He said 'no, you're singing lead.'" The chemistry clicked, and Don't Explain was released in 2011, followed now by 2013's Seesaw-in between, both Hart and Bonamassa have toured, recorded solo albums, and reached new career highs.
"What's so cool about these projects is that when Joe and Beth enter the studio, he comes in as a guitar player, and she comes in as a singer," says Shirley. "They're getting together just to play fun music, sing some favorite songs, without the pressure of career issues they might have on solo projects. The point is to pick up and celebrate songs that didn't get their due in the day, and to pay homage to ones that were truly classics. The vibe this time is more upbeat than on Don't Explain, lots of big band horns."1. Them There Eyes

The Apocalypse Blues RevueIn February 2016, Apocalypse Blues Revue entered the Vibe Recording Studio and cut their self-titled debut in just nine days. Co-founded by Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin and guitarist Tony Rombola, and featuring vocalist Ray "Rafer John" Cerbone and bassist Brian Carpenter, the quartet honors blues traditions while etching their stamp on the genre.
Mixed by Dave Fortman, the debut album conjures up swampy soul colored by rock 'n' roll and rockabilly over the course of 11 tracks.
"As far as blues goes, The Apocalypse Blues Revue is a little heavier, a little darker, and has some punk rock attitude in the lyrics," says Shannon. "We wanted to make something deep that will provoke thought. It had to be evil though. We're not trying to make It happy. It's called blues for a reason."
Tony and Shannon's creative union traces back to 2001, when Shannon joined Godsmack. Selling 20 million records worldwide and garnering four Grammy® Award nominations, the juggernaut remains a hard rock institution.
"I want people to walk away with our songs stuck in their heads," Shannon leaves off. "The music speaks for itself on this record." "It's back to basics," concludes Tony.1. Evil Is As Evil Does

Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd (45 RPM)
45 RPM 200-Gram Gatefold Double LP Reissue
Remastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Analog Tapes
Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!
Tip-On Gatefold Jacket By Stoughton Printing
What would American southern rock be without the scorching sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd? Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings have already brought you exceptional reissues of Second Helping and Nuthin' Fancy. Back to the well then, we go, for two more Skynyrd favorites - the epic Gimme Back My Bullets and the band's bluesy, hard-rocking 1973 debut Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd.
Remastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, our Analogue Productions reissue of Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd is the ultimate in luxurious reproduction and unbeatable sound. 200-gram plating and pressing by Quality Record Pressings, and a tip-on Stoughton Printing jacket round out the package.
The undeniable youthful hunger of Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd pumps through the subtly witty songs, all strongly rooted in Southern heritage and working-class values. Independent of the most-requested tune in history, Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd bleeds red, white, and blue and encapsulates the wondrous dichotomies of Southern rock.
Months before Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoyed the privilege of recording its debut, the band entered its seventh year of playing juke joints and assorted dives in a bootstraps effort to land a deal. During a residency at a hardscrabble Georgian club, the group's rambunctious rock, swaggering attitude, blue-collar determination, and country-reared cadence caught the ear of producer/musician Al Kooper. The rest is history. Kooper inked the ensemble to his new imprint and hustled everyone into a Georgia studio for sessions that occurred March through April 1973.
It's at the Studio One space that Lynyrd Skynyrd flashed scampering tempos, cutting give-and-take riffs, loose barroom lines, and off-the-cuff vocalese that entirely separated its approach from that of the more jazz-styled affairs of the Allman Brothers Band. Confederate flags, empty whiskey bottles, cocked pistols, rotgut habits, scorned women, and prodigal drifters populate the songs, nearly all written from first-person perspectives that add to their genuineness. Prophetic touches - twinkling piano notes, soaring mellotrons, a one-off harmonica - provide ideal complements to the intertwined guitar melodies and singer Ronnie Van Zant's comfortable gruffness and way of expressing local customs.

Tical2014 is the 20th anniversary of Tical, the debut solo album of Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man, released November 15, 1994, on Def Jam Records. It
was the first Wu-Tang solo album released after the group's debut,Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Similar to all first generation solo Wu-Tang
projects, Tical was mainly produced by group member RZA. The album features guest appearances from several Wu-Tang members including RZA,
Raekwon, & Inspectah Deck. The album was a commercial success, reaching number four on the Billboard 200, and number one on the Top R&B/Hip
Hop Albums chart. On July13, 1995, it was certified platinum. This success was driven by its two singles, Bring the Pain and I'll Be There for You/You're
All I Need to Get By. Tical has since been hailed by several music critics as a hip hop classic and its success is matched by its influence as a major piece

W.A.S.P. The Best Of The Best (Out of Stock)Blackie Lawless launched W.A.S.P. on the unsuspecting world in 1983 and before long tales of their outrageous music and intense stage shows were legendary.
In the last few years of the old century W.A.S.P. made some of their most striking and brave albums. The ferocious, blood-splattered Kill Fuck Die and the celebratory sleazefest of Helldorado had provided solid proof
that Blackie Lawless' songwriting skills were as keen and unique as ever and, unlike the majority of his 80s contemporaries, this most dogged and determined of frontmen was entering a new era full of confidence,
with that blazing inferno in his eyes clearly a long way from fizzling out.
The 15 tracks featured on The Best Of The Best prove that while the theatrics and shock tactics of Blackie Lawless might have gained the headlines, it was what W.A.S.P. did on record that gained them legions of fans. An exhilarating rock'n'roll rollercoaster, this double disc set collects themost incendiary moments from a career built on mixing snarling sexual noise with carnage, chaos and controversy.
Collecting tracks from all the classic W.A.S.P. albums, including W.A.S.P., The Last Command and The Headless Children, this double 180g black vinyl gatefold edition, released through Madfish of The Best Of The Best provides the definitive document of a blistering career. The Best Of The Best features the W.A.S.P. cuts - Animal (F**K Like A Beast), I Wanna Be Somebody, Wild Child and a rip roaring cover of Elton
