    The Godfather Soundtrack

    Nino Rota's compositions come to life in a dark, looming, and elegant soundtrack. The soundtrack's Main Title is a classical recording, and establishes a theme for the rest of the score. I Have but One Heart is the sole vocal track on the album, featuring Al Martino switching from English to Italian lyrics. The Halls of Fear develops the theme even further by adding a dark, jazzy slant to it. The standout cut is The Godfather Finale. This is where the theme becomes undeniable, and simply striking.

    Godfather Part II Soundtrack

    First Numbered Pressing of 1000 Copies on Limited Edition Red Transparent Vinyl


    When director Francis Ford Coppola turned novelist Mario Puzo's pulpy The Godfather into one of the greatest accomplishments of modern American cinema in 1972, one of his shrewdest decisions was to hand the scoring assignment to the great Italian film composer Nino Rota. Rota, who had built his reputation alongside Fellini (though he'd already scored some three dozen films in the previous 20 years), brought Neopolitan jazz stylings and a Sicilian melodic sensibilty (characterized perfectly by the main title's mournful solo trumpet, which has since become a cinematic icon) to a story of corruption and betrayal as American as, well, gnocchi. Listening to this masterful score one can't help but wonder what Rota, who died in 1979) might have accomplished had he begun working with Hollywood's resources a decade earlier. --Jerry McCulley

    Evolve Or Be Extinct

    Its safe to say that Evolve Or Be Extinct is the best album of this unique artists career. Dark, funny, wild and exhilarating, this is a record which shows just what Wiley is truly capable of. He has never made a record which reveals so much of his character, his contradictions and inner workings, his humour as well as his anger. A short, sharp, brilliant album, it shows Wiley as more than a Godfather to a scene and penner of occasional hits, but as an artist who continues to develop, refine and improve his vision even after ten turbulent years in the game.

    Think (about it)

    At the time of the release of Think (About It) in 1972, Lyn Collins had been a member of James Brown's performing revue for about two years. Her full-throated voice had earned her the nickname the Female Preacher and a shot to record her own album. Of course, the Godfather was in the producer's chair, writing four of the nine tracks, directing the J.B.'s as they laid down their usual funky grooves, and liberally adding vocals throughout. The title track is the main point of interest here; from Collins' throat-ripping vocals to the track's nasty groove to Brown's background interjections, this is a killer. Just Won't Do Right is a good doo wop-ish ballad with some churchy organ and great vocals by Collins and Brown, Wheels of Life is a nice little groover that sounds like vintage Aretha Franklin, and Women's Lib is a very slow ballad that lets Collins show off her anguished yowl of a vocal to its fullest. -- Allmusic

    Lovelite (On Sale)

    The Spanish soul/funk outfit The Sweet Vandals' new release Lovelite is a warm, rough but nevertheless determined piece of music full of energy funk and deep black soul surrounded by a touch of groove. Songs like Funky Children or What About Love seem to reflect the magic of Dusty Springfield in Maykas voice. Songs like Againstupidity evoke the spirit of Soul and Funk godfather James Brown. Every Woman Is A Diva highlights the bands uniqueness and their charming ability of self-irony. Another especially tasty piece of music is I Hate To Hate You, structured like a classic '60s-Motown song but decorated with a certain roughness that is typical to the Vandals raw funk sound. Lovelite is an eleven-song-trip through the basic foundations of Soul and Funk. A pure record to commemorate the good old analog world.

    Improvisation (On Sale)

    The godfather of improvisational guitar, Derek Bailey's praises have been sung far and wide by everyone from Pat Metheny to Karlheinz Stockhausen for having revolutionized the way the instrument was played over the last half of the twentieth century. Although fans are often frustrated by the low-fidelity of his earlier recordings, this 1975 LP (originally released on the Italian avant-garde label, Cramps), stands out in that regard. Recorded in an actual studio (unlike most of his early work) in Milan, for this session Bailey was apparently asked by his Italian hosts to define "improvisation". He then proceeded to give his answer in the form of these fourteen tracks (eight performed with electric guitar, five with six-string acoustic guitar, and one with a 19-string acoustic guitar).

    Thievery Corporation once again raises the bar with their incendiary fifth independent studio album Radio Retaliation. Along with longtime microphone co-conspirators like Sleepy Wonder, Lou Lou, and Notch the outernational DJ and production duo are joined by a new cast of musical collaborators including
    Nigeria's afro-beat heir Femi Kuti, Brazilian star vocalist and guitarist Seu Jorge, Indian sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar, Slovakian chanteuse and
    violinist Jana Andevska, and Washington DC's own godfather of go-go Chuck Brown. With an uncompromising socio-political agenda and richly layered
    production touching upon the eclectic sounds of Jamaica, Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, Radio Retaliation is one of Thievery
    Corporation's broadest and most progressive albums.

    On The Border


    Certified Multi-Platinum (2 times) by the RIAA. (3/01)


    On their third album, the Eagles finally produced a No. 1 hit with The Best of My Love, but most of On the Border is marked by tough rockers, not sweet ballads. Already Gone is a brusque kiss-off and Midnight Flyer a bluegrass kicker, while James Dean recalls the '50s rebel icon, and the title track reflects on paranoia and creeping Big Brotherism. The Eagles also cover a Tom Waits tune, Ol' 55, and pay tribute to alt-country godfather Gram Parsons on My Man. The album title is prophetic in the sense that the band that made this record (bolstered by the addition of guitarist Don Felder) was on the verge of greatness, but not quite there yet. --Daniel Durchholz

    Love Power Peace

    First Release Of 3 LP Set As Envisioned By James Brown


    Includes Deluxe Jacket With Rare Photos And Liner Notes By Alan Leeds


    Mastered From Brown's 1971 Mixdown Reels, Unused Until Now


    James Brown's magnum opus! Love Power Peace is the sound of the Godfather and his youngblood J.B.'s (including Bootsy and Catfish Collins) electrifying a crazed Parisian audience on March 8, 1971. Sequenced and mixed by Brown himself for a planned triple album, the set was shelved when key band members departed before it could be issued. Here, for the first time, are the sides as intended, exactly as delivered by James Brown Productions to his label in 1971-a 3-LP set with each disc mastered from the original mixdown reels, and each with a unique name, Love, Power and Peace! Brown and band rip through recent singles like "Sex Machine," "Super Bad," "Give It Up or Turnit a Loose" and "Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved" with a metronomic precision laid down by bassist Bootsy Collins and drummer Jabo Starks. "Ain't It Funky Now" - formerly a slow, simmering groove - is transformed into a fast, funky tour de force in which newbie Catfish Collins unleashes one of the most badass guitar solos ever, while a medley of three other Brown standards ("Papa's Got a Brand New Bag"/"I Got You (I Feel Good)"/"I Got the Feelin' ") blazes by faster than the Godfather of Soul's personal Learjet. Interspersed with just the right amount of slow numbers like "Georgia on My Mind," and including tracks from the show's supporting acts that were not included on the 1992 CD (which was a remixed, incomplete show), this document of the funk revolution features rare photos and liner notes by tour director Alan Leeds. The way to jump on board for a trip through James' world at the height of his career!

    Bundled With A 22"x 22" Poster Of The Cover Art


    Maceo Parker was one of the most revered and loved members of James Brown's famed J.B.'s band from the late '60s to the mid-1970s. Alongside his instantly-recognizable alto saxophone solos, he occasionally performed as comedian before James Brown shows, in addition to playing MC.


    He was a true renaissance man. And while other members of The Godfather of Soul's inner circle - most notably trombonist Fred Wesley - had solo albums at the advent of Brown's People Records, Maceo had to wait his turn for a couple years. By the time 1974 rolled around, this talented musician and personality could not be denied, and he burst onto the scene as a group leader with one of the most impressive albums in the People catalog: the simply titled, but deeply felt, Us.


    Maceo's group (occasionally called The Macks) and Fred Wesley's J.B.'s were essentially the same unit - including guitarists Jimmy Nolen and Hearlon "Cheese" Martin, drummer John "Jabo" Starks, saxophonist St. Clair Pinckney and of course Fred Wesley on trombone. Unsurprisingly, the material here is never-endingly funky. But as shown in the song selection (presumably by Parker, with heavy-handy assistance from the
    Godfather himself), there are as many ballads and soul groovers as there are straight-up funk workouts.
    Cases in point include the mellow, Gamble & Huff-penned "Drowning In The Sea Of Love" (with organ, most likely played by James Brown, slithering in the background) and the syrupy "Show and Tell." The album's closer is also on the slower side, going very deep and striking a chord, as Maceo and Brown talk about conditions in the Black American landscape of the day over the course of 10-plus minutes.


    And there is, of course, plenty of diesel funk here as well: singles like "Soul Power 74" and "Parrty" are downright nasty grooves, known well by James Brown fans old and new. "Soul Power 74" additionally features very early proto-sampling, with a baby's cry as well as Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have Been To The Mountain Top" speech. And Maceo's take on the J.B.'s classic "Doing It To Death" is a unique version, more muted and of course featuring Maceo's gorgeous horn front and center.


    Appearing at the apex of both James Brown's and People Records' power, Us is a treasured jewel in the J.B. catalog, and rightfully so. This 150 gram vinyl LP comes in a Stoughton Jacket, housed in a custom People Records poly bag, and includes 24" x 24" poster.

    Blurry Blue Mountain

    Import

    2010 marks the 25th anniversary of Valley Of Rain, the debut album by Giant Sand, the ever-shifting alternative rock band overseen by the Godfather of Alt-Country Howe Gelb. With that in mind, the band are celebrating in the only way they know how: with a flurry of great music, including the release of this new Giant Sand record Blurry Blue Mountain. This special edition is being released in a limited edition of 500 copies on blue vinyl and 500 copies on picture disc.



    On this album, it happened that every session we were able to record came between work loads that rendered us at that point of sleeping and waking. Like the poppy fields in Wizard of Oz, we went in and out of consciousness at various times during recording. This is not a bad thing. Nor does it make the record sound like we're asleep. it has the momentum of that place between sleep and being awake. and in that narrow slip of existence lies a landscape of reason that most of us hurry past in daily lives. This record is planted firmly there between the crystal clear focus of your day to day and the luxury of sweet fuzzy sleep, we welcome you to the blurry blue mountain. - Howe Gelb

    Get On Up - The James Brown Story - Soundtrack

    "The Godfather of Soul." "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business." "Mr. Dynamite." "Soul Brother Number One." For more than 50 years, these and
    other honorifics have described American music icon James Brown.


    GET ON UP: The James Brown Story - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features studio and standout live versions of many of Brown's top soul/funk
    hits-from his first, 1956's "Please Please Please" to "Out Of Sight," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Try Me," "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag," "It's A Man's
    Man's Man's World," and "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine." Also included are two previously unreleased concert recordings heard in the new
    film that is in theaters nationwide on August 1. These live, spine-tingling performances of "Please Please Please" and "It's A Man's Man's Man's World"
    were recorded at the historic Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory in Tampa, Florida on April 23, 1966.


    In 1986, James Brown was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a charter member. A multiple GRAMMY® Award winner, Brown was honored
    with the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1992, and in 2003 he received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. Brown died on
    Christmas Day 2006 at the age of 73.
