    Heads & Tails (Featuring Taxi)


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso


    Features His All Time Classic Masterpiece Taxi


    Heads & Tails was the debut smash Lp from the late singer/songwriter and human rights activist Harry Chapin. Shortly after its release in 1972, and thanks in part to Johnny Carson for asking the artist to come back a second night after he blew the audience away with his storytelling classic hit Taxi, Harry Chapin was on soon on his way to the top rungs of the charts.


    Radio programmers both rock and pop also took the cue and began to play the 7 minute single in tandem, as Taxi would soon become one of the biggest success stories of the time.


    The album was filled with 8 more Chapin classics like his stellar Greyhound, Could You Keep Your Light On Please and the beautiful harmony filled Any Old Kind Of Day. With his amazing stories and masterful musicianship, Harry Chapin would go on beyond the musical landscape and become one of the leading human rights activists of his time with his food outreach programs, which are still in the works to this day (The Harry Chapin Foundation)


    Friday Music is very honored to announce the limited edition release of late great Harry Chapin's Heads & Tails. This first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl was mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Captiol Records and will also be presented in a stunning gatefold cover to further enhance your listening experience.


    This is a wonderful album for his old fans to revisit for the first time in the audiophile vinyl domain, as well as to share with others who may never have heard the amazing stories and songs that tru

    ly made this sorely missed artist a musical pioneer.

    Accumulator

    As Greyhounds, guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell have been making music and touring for 15 years, refining and developing a sound Trube calls "Hall and Oates meet ZZ Top. Anthony brings that LA thing and I bring the East Texas thing." Ardent Music, the independent record label based out of legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee,expects to build on the fanbase the band has developed both on the road and as a staple of the Austin music scene. Label director Reed Turchi says,"We committed to three albums not only because we believe in these guys, not only because they're great musicians and songwriters, but because they've been incredibly prolific." "We're always writing," Trube says. "We've got songs for eight albums." The first 'hounds out of the gate will be Accumulator. "This is the re-introduction that never happened," Trube says. The album will combine the cream-of-the-crop of tunes the band's devoted followers pass along to the uninitiated with new, previously-unreleased tracks. An accumulation of the band's past and present, with a nod to ZZ Top's Eliminator, one of the most famous and commercially successful albums ever recorded at Ardent, Accumulator is also the first part of a sort of three-part wager well-known at the track. "The music business is a gamble," Anthony Farrell says. "You got to keep playing to win. There have been lots of times we could have said 'This is too hard,' or 'There's no retirement plan. But basically you have to play your hand. And now Ardent has bet on us, and we've bet on them."The first album will give new listeners "a little taste of the evolution of the band," according to Farrell, and will be accompanied by a re-vamped stage show featuring more than just a new set list. The band's respect for the past, and their roots in country, blues, rock and soul, will meet the present in the second Greyhounds album released by Ardent, which is set to feature all new songs, with more of an electronic aspect. Farrell explains, "You ingest all your experiences, and you try to make sense of them through your art. This second album will be a reflection of where we were at when we wrote those songs." For the third record, the band anticipates more of a live sound. The duo say they're excited to be recording in Memphis, with its rich musical heritage, and particularly at Ardent Studios, which combines that heritage with state-of-the-art equipment. When they aren't touring and recording as Greyhounds, Trube and Farrell keep busy as members of JJ Grey and Mofro, playing 200 dates a year, and writing songs for a variety of other musicians, including Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.

    Greyhound Blues / Lonesome Old Jail

    Daniel Augusta Hunt, better known as Junior Hunt, was born in Munford, AL in 1929. On or around March 11th, 1953, Hunt recorded these two songs at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis and they were released in June of that year. For over 50 years, these songs were believed to only exist in 78 rpm form, until a copy pressed as a 45 rpm 7'' single turned up in Minnesota. This only known copy was sold on eBay in 2010 for $10,323. This marks the first legitimate release of Hunt's material on a 7'' record, and both songs are outstanding examples of the heartbreaking, desolate nature of the solo bluesman accompanying himself on guitar and borrow heavily from the template set by Lightnin' Hopkins. Hunt was arrested in Memphis in 1958 for stealing a saxophone and died in May 1962 in Phoenix, AZ.

    Island Intervals

    That Joel Thibodeau's slender, winsome voice is at once so comforting
    and so unsettling might be the greatest of his many strengths. Reed-thin
    but sturdy, youthful but somehow ageless, its deep benevolence is also
    slightly eerie, and the way he gently walks the line between intense
    feeling and contemplative remove lets him sing from a timeless place
    where he evokes the beauty of vanished people and places, sweetness
    too profound for words, loss too great for tears.


    Like Nico's, Jimmy Scott's, or Phil Elverum's, Joel's is a voice that
    demands its own sonic and lyrical world, and with Island Intervals, his
    third record as Death Vessel (and second for Sub Pop), we're treated to
    the sound of him finding a rich and strange new home among new friends
    in Iceland who probably saw him as a long-lost relative. Joel's an inveterate
    and intuitive wanderer; when I met him years ago, he'd just spent a few
    months traveling the United States on Greyhound buses, sometimes
    sleeping rough, and making a record from found moments.


    Island Intervals springs from a more recent journey. For his first album
    since 2008's acclaimed Nothing Is Precious Enough for Us, Joel traveled
    to Reykjavík on an invitation from Sigur Rós singer Jónsi and producer
    Alex Somers, where they spent three months together conjuring an album
    that's both a song cycle and a window into a mysterious and singular
    landscape. Island Intervals wraps Joel's voice and furtive guitar in sounds
    that evoke not so much a band playing as elemental forces of earth and
    water; Pete Donnelly (The Figgs, NRBQ), Samuli Kosminen (Múm) and
    Thorvaldur Doddi Thorvaldsson assist Somers in creating a rich and
    multi-layered world that sounds, at times, like a well-tuned forest sighing
    and bending in a gale, or the deep cracks and booms of a glacier calving
    its way to the sea. Jónsi also joins Joel on vocals for the track "Ilsa
    Drown."


    Island Intervals lives in the spaces between running away and letting
    go, and finds its author embracing a life whose most solid, real moments
    loom and vanish, like a range of mountains that emerges from a bank
    of low clouds, and just as suddenly slips away.

    Digging In The Dust: Home Recordings 1976

    Songwriter/guitarist Mark Fosson grew up in Kentucky, where he began writing songs while he was still in his early teens. In the late '70s he sent some song demos to John Fahey's West Coast-based Takoma Records, and Fahey, impressed with what he heard, offered Fosson a recording deal. Fosson lost no time in relocating to Los Angeles and began recording with Fahey, but as bad luck would have it, Takoma was in some difficulty, and the label soon folded. Fahey allowed Fosson to retain the master tapes of the sessions, however.


    Now located on the West Coast, Fosson met fellow songwriter Edward Tree, and the two began working together, eventually forming the Bum Steers, a country-tinged group, in the late '80s. Fosson material appeared on several soundtracks through the 1990s. In 2001 he began collaborating with singer/songwriter Lisa O'Kane, who recorded several of his songs, and Fosson also began recording a solo project, Jesus on a Greyhound, which was eventually released on Big Otis Records. The record drew positive reviews and Fosson was frequently compared to Americana artists like Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Joe Ely, John Prine, and Guy Clark.


    The Fahey material finally saw the light of day as The Lost Takoma Sessions from Drag City Records in 2006. His instrumental piece Another Fine Day is featured on the critically acclaimed Tompkins Square compilation Imaginational Anthem. Now Tompkins Square has put together more hard to come by but welcome material from this gifted artist with the collection Digging In The Dust: Home Recordings 1976, an 11-track set of home recordings Fosson made circa 1976.
