    Greatest Love Songs Vol. 666 (Deluxe)


    2 Gatefold Colored LPs - Remastered


    When thinking back to heavy music and the 1990's, it's easy to just neatly summarize it up as grunge?and then nu metal. But we mustn't forget that between the two, several metal bands went goth - tops being Type O Negative and of course, HIM. And HIM frontman Ville Valo certainly succeeded in putting his own unique spin on dark imagery and vampirism on his band's debut full-length, Greatest Love Songs Vol. 666. - Greg Prato

    Love Metal (Deluxe)


    2 Gatefold Colored LPs - Remastered


    "If it's possible to pick a "definitive" HIM album, Love Metal would certainly qualify. Recorded in the autumn of 2002 at Helsinki's Finnvox studios with producer/engineer Hiili Hiilesmaa behind the board, the album plays firmly to the band's strengths. Goth-flavored atmospherics? Meaty riffs? Expertly-crafted arrangements? Instantly-catchy choruses? Operatic despair? It's all here, most notably on the album's three classic singles: "Buried Alive By Love," which opens the proceedings with a roar, and proceeds to ratchet up the intensity from there, and "The Funeral of Hearts" and "The Sacrament," both of which beautifully pair Ville's lovelorn baritone with the band's innate ability to switch gears from delicate to muscular with the flick of a cigarette ash." - Dan Epstein

    Razorblade Romance


    Remastered


    "By the time HIM released Razorblade Romance in 1999, its fans were well-versed in the band's oeuvre, as well as its lyrical fascination with love and death. Its first official full-length album, 1997's gothic-kissed Greatest Love Songs: Vol. 666, focused on the agony of pining after the object of one's desire, a person whom Valo frequently beckoned to join his side. The tightly intertwined themes of amour and mortality remains strong on Razorblade Romance. But instead of longing for affection, the lyrics also detail the unexpected results of capturing someone's heart: The union that finally occurs doesn't live up to the expectations of countless lovelorn fantasies, and being emotionally abandoned by the person who's lying in your arms perpetuates another cycle of mortal pain." - Christa Titus (Billboard)

    Back In The USA


    Ranked 451/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The incendiary Detroit quintet MC5 (the MC stood for "Motor City") burned briefly but brightly at rock's cutting edge in the late 1960s and early 1970s, building a reputation of high energy, high volume performances. They were seen as a hugely influential
    force on punk music and in the words of Rob Tyner (lead singer), MC5, "were Punk, before Punk...New Wave, before New Wave...Metal, before Metal... even "M.C" before Hammer."


    Released in 1970 Back in the USA was their first studio album, following their live debut Kick Out the Jams, it features covers of the classic Little Richard track 'Tutti-Frutti' and title track 'Back in the USA' by Chuck Berry.

    Deep Shadows And Brilliant Highlights (Deluxe)


    2 Gatefold Colored LPs - Remastered


    Of all of HIM's albums, Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights possesses the biggest contrast between dark and light. There may not have been as many entombed emotions and vampire hearts to be found here, but Valo's sensual delivery and poetic words still dove into an ocean of romantic darkness, albeit with a hopeful light shining through on tunes like In Joy and Sorrow and You Are The One. - Bryan Reesman

    The Duke EP (Colored Vinyl)

    Pressed On Opaque Blue Colored Vinyl


    Internationally-renowned heavy rock band LAMB OF GOD will release a brand new EP, entitled The Duke via Epic Records. The EP is titled after the new track 'The Duke,' written in honor of the band's late friend and fan, Wayne Ford, who was named after The Duke John Wayne.


    A little while ago I became friends with a fan named Wayne Ford - he was terminal - leukemia. I talked with him often, even video chatted him into the studio. He was very calm about his impending death, and we discussed it very openly. I learned a lot from him. This song is for him, dedicates vocalist Randy Blythe.

    And His Mother Called Him Bill (Speakers Corner)

    When Billy Strayhorn died of cancer in 1967, Duke Ellington was devastated. His closest friend and arranger had left his life full of music and memories. As a tribute, Ellington and his orchestra almost immediately began recording a tribute to Strayhorn, using the late arranger's own compositions.



    The album features well-known and previously unrecorded Strayhorn tunes that showcase his range, versatility, and, above all, the quality that Ellington admired him most for: his sensitivity to all of the timbral, tonal, and color possibilities an orchestra could bring to a piece of music.



    Full of informality and soulful verve, these recordings feel like they are an afterthought, an unwillingness to completely let go, a eulogy whose final words are questions, elegantly stated and met with only the echo of their last vibrations ringing in an empty room, full of wondering, longing, and helplessness, but above all the point of the questions themselves: "Is this enough?" or "Can there ever be enough to pay an adequate tribute to this man?"
    They are interesting questions, because only five years later we would all be saying the same thing about Ellington. For a man who issued well over 300 albums, this set is among his most profoundly felt and very finest recorded moments.






    Musicians:



    • Duke Ellington (piano)

    • Cat Anderson, Mercer Ellington (trumpet)

    • Clark Terry (fluegel horn)

    • Lawrence Brown, Chuck Connors (trombone)

    • Johnny Hodges (alto saxophone)

    • Russell Procope (alto saxophone, clarinet)

    • Jimmy Hamilton (tenor saxophone, clarinet)

    • Paul Gonsalves (tenor saxophone)

    • Aaron Bell (bass)

    • Steve Little (drums)




    Recording: August and September 1967 in RCA Victor's Studio A, New York City, by Ed Begley

    Production: Brad McCuen





    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.

    Christmas Party

    Christmas Party is the new holiday album from She & Him, the duo comprised of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Christmas Party is the follow up to their wildly popular A Very She And Him Christmas, and this new collection features guest appearances by Jenny Lewis, The Chapin Sisters and Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley.


    Christmas Party is replete with holiday favorites - including classics like Darlene Love and Phil Spector's Marshmallow World, Bing Crosby's Mele Kalikimaka and Chuck Berry's Run Run Rudolph. But, Ward and Deschanel also may introduce listeners to the more obscure tracks such as folk-singer Vashti Bunyon's Coldest Night of the Year and the lesser know Sinatra track Christmas Memories. Pop favorites such as Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You and The Chipmunks Christmas Don't Be Late round out the celebration. Throughout the album is She & Him's signature stripped down take on production.


    It was the positive experience they had recording their first Christmas record, A Very She & Him Christmas, in 2011 that brought M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel back for another round of holiday cheer. Much like their first Christmas record, She & Him bring an organic and minimalistic approach to their holiday covers. Highly produced classics get stripped down to their most fundamental elements, a style perfectly aligned with their vision. You won't find any accompanying orchestra or full-piece brass bands on Christmas Party. Instead, She & Him rely on friends and family to lend a simple and authentic holiday vibe to this album, one where the guest list speaks for itself.


    In the years between the two holiday records, She & Him released Vol. 3, an album of original songs, and kept their affection for covers alive with Classics, a compilation of covers of their favorite standards. Throughout these intervening years and albums, Zooey and Ward gradually culled a new collection of holiday songs to re-interpret, tucking them away like a stack of presents growing under a tree. As Christmas Party comes to a close, the listener can take solace in knowing the door on this gathering is never fully shut. The sing-alongs, the happy accidents, the quiet moments with loved ones - they're all waiting for you whenever you wish to immerse yourself in the splendor of the season. As Ward himself says, Music is one of the purest ways into Christmas.

    Volume Two

    She & Him make music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008's Volume One has evolved into a bonafide touring band, and She & Him are here to stay.


    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford; hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy and romantic. All songs (except 4 and 7) written by Zooey Deschanel. Produced by M. Ward.

    Volume Three

    With fourteen songs-11 Deschanel originals and three covers-
    Volume 3 is an effortlessly effervescent, bleached-out-in-the-sun pop
    record. The album features some of the most dynamic, complex
    songs Deschanel has ever written, allowing for tempo shifts, disco
    grooves, string arrangements on multiple tracks, and horn flourishes
    that perfectly suit the She & Him sound. Produced by M. Ward and
    recorded in Los Angeles, Portland, and New York City, Volume 3
    features guest contributions from NRBQ's Joey Spampinato, Mike
    Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder from Rilo Kiley, and Tom
    Hagerman from Devotchka.


    Since the release of the band's album Volume Two in 2010, much
    has happened to both She and to Him. Deschanel, whose television
    show New Girl has cemented her status as a sitcom star, continued
    to hone her songwriting skills, writing the theme song for her new
    show in addition to being nominated for a GRAMMY for Best
    Original Song for the movie Winnie the Pooh. She wrote songs for
    Volume 3 during small pockets of downtime while filming New Girl,
    as Ward toured the world behind his latest solo creation, A
    Wasteland Companion, which was released to massive critical acclaim
    last year. Together and separately, the duo has sold over a million
    albums domestically-a testament to their classic sonic
    arrangements, their rich, incomparable voices, and their ability to
    craft pitch-perfect, Brill Building-esque choruses around timeless,
    universal themes

    Volume One

    She & Him is a story of musical serendipity: two artists, each renowned in their own creative fields, meet and recognize a certain shared nostalgia. The result is destined to be one of the musical highlights of the year.


    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward first met to record a version of Richard and Linda Thompson's When I Get To The Border for a movie soundtrack. Immediately struck by one another's talents and finding an instant rapport Zooey let slip that she wrote her own songs which she recorded alone at home on her computer. Somewhat shy about anyone hearing these musical morsels she eventually sent the demos to Ward who was instantly impressed. They soon reconvened at his Portland studio to begin work.


    Embracing the warm sound of early analog recordings, Volume One is more than just a showcase for Zooey's rich and endearing voice; it's a distinctive and endlessly charming album. The songs themselves give a respectful nod to the likes of Dusty Springfield, Linda Ronstadt and The Zombies while Ward's production gives them just the right amount of golden era sheen. Whether Zooey's channeling Ronnie Spector as on I Was Made For You or joining Ward in turning The Beatles I Should Have Known Better into a seductive hula guitar duet, the results are always captivating.

    Classics

    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward (tka She & Him) have shared information for their latest album, Classics. The 13-track collection of "carefully-selected, timeless standards" is duo's first album for the major label; their previous four albums, most recently last year's Volume 3, came out via Merge Records.


    As previously reported, the pair recorded the covers album live alongside a 20-piece orchestra, "allowing a spontaneity that captured the spirit of the songs in their truest forms." As Deschanel explained, "It was a dream of ours to record these songs in a way that highlighted the brilliance of the songwriting and the beauty of their melodies."

    Curtis

    Released in 1970 Curtis is the debut album by American soul/funk artist, and former lead singer of The Impressions, Curtis Mayfield. Released on his own label Curtom Records and also self-produced this debut was very much a solo project building on
    Mayfield's personal experiences.


    It moved away from the pop soul sounds of The Impressions and featured much more of a funk and psychedelic inspired sound. It was a powerful musical statement which covered many social and political concerns of the time, most famously in the single 'Move On Up' which would later be covered and sampled by many future artists including The Jam and Kanye West.

    Something To Remember

    Something to Remember is Madonna's second greatest-hits collection, compiling a selection of the singer's ballads. Several of her biggest hits are included, including the number ones Crazy for You, Live to Tell, This Used to Be My Playground, and Take a Bow, as well as a handful of first-rate album tracks (a remixed Love Don't Live Here Anymore, Something to Remember, and three new tracks, most notably a version of Marvin Gaye's I Want You recorded with the British trip-hop group Massive Attack. Only two tracks on the album overlap with The Immaculate Collection, and the disc also marks the first appearance of This Used to Be My Playground and I'll Remember on one of Madonna's albums. Throughout the album, Madonna proves that she's a terrific singer whose voice has improved over the years. Not one of the tracks is second-rate, and the best songs on Something to Remember rank among the best pop music of the '80s and '90s.

    Gentleman

    1973's Gentleman is the last of Fela's early 1970s transitional albums - it was followed by 1974's Alagbon Close, on which he brought all Afrobeat's signature ingredients together. On its title track, 1973's Gentleman presents one of Fela's most perfect lyrics, sung in call-and-response with the backing vocalists. "I no be gentleman at all," Fela sings, "Africa hot, I like am so; I know what to wear but my friend don't know; him put him socks him put him shoes; him put him pants him put him singlet; him put him trouser him put him shirt; him put him tie him put him coat; him come cover all with him hat; him be gentleman; him go sweat all over; him go faint right down .I no be gentleman at all-o; I be Africa man original." There's plenty more. As so often with Fela's songs, "Gentleman" can be interpreted literally or as metaphor concerning a wider issue. In this case, Fela's topic is the colonialism-induced inferiority complex which led many in Africa's new governing elites to reject African style, concepts of beauty and modes of behaviour in favour of European imports. It was a subject Fela returned to on 1976's Yellow Fever, whose title track attacked the craze for skin whitening creams among African women, and 1977's Johnny Just Drop, whose title track lampooned the social pretensions of Africans returning home after working or studying abroad. Gentleman's other tracks, "Fefe Naa Efe" and "Igbe," have briefer lyrics. On "Fefe Naa Efe," an Ashanti motto from Ghana, Fela tells a woman dumped by her boyfriend that she must get over the heartache and move on.

    Coryell made his HighNote debut with this All-Star line-up and pays tribute to the jazz giants
    who influenced him and helped him develop his unique jazz guitar style which has made him the
    touchstone against which all other jazz guitarists are measured. With the great John Hicks on piano,
    saxman Willie Williams, drummer Yoron Israel laying down the foundation and the imaginative bass-ics of Santi Debriano, Larry pours some new wine into the old bottles with innovative takes on classic tunes by Monk, Trane, Miles and, of course, Larry Coryell.

    The fifth M. Ward album and his most absorbing yet. Its songs unravel their world-wearied tales of life, love, and human kindness with an innate and special grace, helped in part by the very talented friends who join him on this record, such as Neko Case and Mike Mogis, as well as old Monsters Of Folk touring buddy Jim James (My Morning Jacket). Look for him on tour this fall.
