La Petite Mort (Awaiting Repress)Manchester's finest make a welcome return with 'La Petite Mort', the first new full length James album in six years. Produced by Max Dingel (Killers. Muse, White Lies) and written as ever, by the band, with Tim Booth lyrics, this new disc ranks among their finest in their 30 year career.
Highlights include the mighty first single 'Moving On', the anthemic 'Curse Curse' and 'Frozen Britain.'
Max Dingel is the latest in a long line of first class producers the band have worked with including Brian Eno, Gil Norton and Youth.
From first signing with the infamous Factory Records, to an illustrious career of albums released through Rough Trade, Sire Records and Mercury, James have now agreed an exciting new joint venture label partnership with BMG Chrysalis and Cooking Vinyl.
'La Petite Mort' was recorded in the wake of Tim Booth losing his mother and best friend in quick succession and understandably many of the songs deal with mortality, hence the album title. However, 'La Petite Mort', is an incredibly uplifting record.
Since forming in 1982, James are, without doubt, one of Britain's most influential indie bands, enjoying a prestigious career that spans over 30 years. Their classic hits include 'Sit Down', 'She's A Star', 'Laid' and 'Getting Away With It (All Messed Up)' amongst their 20 top 40 UK singles. They have released 12 studio albums and have sold over 12 million albums worldwide.
James are: Tim Booth (vocals), Jim Glennie (bass), Larry Gott (guitars), Saul Davies (guitar, violin), Mark Hunter (keyboards), David Baynton-Power (drums) and Andy Diagram (trumpet).1. Walk Like You

Chicago II (Awaiting Repress)Chicago was founded in 1967 by Walt Parazaider (woodwinds), James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Roert Lamm (keyboards and lead vocals), Terry Kath (guitar and lead vocals), and Danny Seraphine (drums). They called themselves The Big Thing. They added bassist-lead vocalist Peter Cetera and began working with their original producer-manager James William Guercio, subsequently becoming known as Chicago Transit Authority. Their self-titled 1969 debut release was an ambitious mix of free-form rock and horn-influenced jazz, the first of three double LPs that would start their career. The band dropped the Transit Authority and became known as simply Chicago on this, their second album in 1970, which was the first album to carry their trademark logo. Peaking at #4 on the Billboard charts, Chicago II yielded some of the group's most enduring hits, which came from Pankow's suite Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon, emulating the form of the great classical composers from a pop perspective.

Etta James (Pure Pleasure)Etta James, one of the most fabulous and respected figures in the history of R&B music. Here are some of Miss Peaches' legendary pre-Chess recordings including the first session, cut on Thanksgiving Eve 1954, when she was just 16, which yielded "Roll With Me, Henry".
"Jean Mitchell and her sister Abbysinia came from New Orleans and were Creole-looking people," wrote our subject in her autobiography. " Jean was my age; Abbye was eight or nine years older. Jean and I started singing together. Soon Abbye joined in and, just like that, we became the Creolettes. We were project girls imitating the young rhythm and blues of the time. Mainly, though, we were intrigued with vocal harmony. We developed a tight three-way blend, imitating groups like the Spaniels, the Swallows, the Chords and the Spiders. One afternoon the Creolettes were singing at a record hop when who should show up but Hank Ballard and his superfine Midnighters. We were thrilled. When they heard us sing, they said something encouraging and, man, that's all we needed to hear. When they sang Work With Me, Annie, the place went wild. Next day the song was still on my mind. Answer songs were big back then, and then it occurred to me - why not answer Hank's hit? I liked doing spunky shit. So I wrote Roll With Me, Henry, a pushy little jiveass reply."
That blockbuster initiation was produced by the fabled Johnny Otis, the hipster also responsible for renaming Ms H and her gal pals Etta James and the Peaches: "The Peaches were pissed because I was getting the glory, but I was even more pissed than the Peaches because Georgia Gibbs came out with her Suzy Creamcheese version. I was happy to have any success, but I was enraged to see Her Nibbs singing the song on the Ed Sullivan Show while I was singing it in some funky dive in Watts." Providing the voice of "Henry" on Etta's original was Richard Berry, who went on to sing on and write many other songs for her, some of which, like Good Rockin' Daddy, also feature back-ups by those fabulous chicks, the Dreamers.
Not only has Etta James made some wonderful records in her illustrious career , she has also authored the brilliant autobiography Rage To Survive, from which all of the above quotations are borrowed.

About Pure Pleasure
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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. Good Rockin' Daddy

Jason JamesJason James' self-titled debut, due out August 21st on the esteemed New West Records label, introduces a charismatic young artist whose effortless mastery of his chosen style serves as a deeply compelling vehicle for his vibrant creative spirit. The talented Texan writes rousing honky-tonk anthems, heart-tugging ballads and smart, sly-humored country-rock tunes that echo the vintage classics that are his touchstones, and sings them with a level of emotional urgency that makes it clear that he means every word. The 13 original compositions that comprise Jason James make it clear that the artist is making music that's timeless rather than retro, reflecting his interest in adding to country tradition rather than merely emulating it. A stellar supporting cast was recruited to bring James' songs to life: producers John Evans (Hayes Carll, Corb Lund), Keith Gattis (Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam) and engineer Steve Christensen (Steve Earle, Destiny's Child) were at the helm, while the virtuosic talents of Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam), Glen Duncan (George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton), Steve Hinson (Randy Travis) and New West labelmate Robert Ellis can be heard gracing the expansive, 13-song collection.1.

James BlakeRising through the ranks of London's Dubstep (a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South East London), James Blake started off as a DJ in various clubs. Influenced by the likes of D'Angelo and Stevie Wonder along with Burial and Mount Kimbie, Blake is known for injecting some soul into the genre of dubstep.
The London-based producer first gave the world a taste of his quirky, R&B-sampling of dubstep in 2009 when his Air & Lack Thereof 12 appeared on the Hemlock label. Blake received quite the endorsement when the heralded Soul Jazz label picked the track up for their Steppas' Delight 2 compilation that same year.
Blake raised his profile during 2010 with a succession of warmly received 12 releases: The Bells Sketch, CMYK, Klavierwerke, and the single-sided Limit to Your Love. The last of the series, a cover of a song by Feist, in which Blake's heartfelt vocal was placed front and center, served as the precursor to this, his first full-length.1. Unluck

James Bond: Goldfinger SoundtrackMusic Composed by John Barry and Vocals by Shirley Bassey!
This is the first of three James Bond films with a theme song sung by Shirley Bassey, whose forceful, dramatic style became a series trademark (she would go on to sing Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker). Goldfinger was composed by John Barry, with lyrics by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse, and is widely acknowledged as a classic of its genre. Famously, co-producer Harry Saltzman hated the song and only agreed to use it when persuaded by Albert Broccoli.
Originally, Newley recorded a version of the theme song, but it was later re-recorded with Bassey's voice for the film and soundtrack album. In 1992, Newley's version was released for the 30th Anniversary of James Bond on film, in the compilation collectors edition The Best of Bond...James Bond.
The score was composed by Barry, making this his second, credited Bond score. The score makes regular use of instrumental arrangements of the title theme, as well as the Bond theme from Dr. No used in the gun barrel sequence . The score makes heavy use of brass. The distinctive music for Goldfinger's henchman, Oddjob, makes use of repeated strokes on a metallic anvil. Metallic chimes are also heard in many scenes associated with Oddjob or gold, notably that in which the dead golden girl is discovered. The very effective use of music and various sound effects in the film won it an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing. The album reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and spent 70 total weeks on the chart.1. Main Title - Into Miami - Goldfinger

James Bond: Dr. No SoundtrackThe Dr. No Soundtrack to Ian Fleming's 007 James Bond film of the same name was originally issued in 1963, although the film was released in June 1962.
Dr. No is the original soundtrack for the first James Bond film of the same name.
Composer Monty Norman was selected by producer Albert R. Broccoli after Broccoli backed a musical of Norman's Belle or The Ballad of Dr. Crippen written by Wolf Mankowitz, a frequent collaborator with Norman and an original screenwriter for Dr. No. Norman accompanied the producers and film crew to Jamaica.
The original James Bond Theme was written by Norman. John Barry, who would later go on to compose the music for eleven Bond films, arranged the theme, but was uncredited - except for the credit of his orchestra playing the final piece. It has occasionally been suggested that Barry, not Norman, composed the theme. This argument has been the subject of two court cases, the most recent in 2001.Some portions of the theme are, however, based on music Norman composed for a stage musical several years previously.
The soundtrack album of Dr. No was not originally issued to coincide with the film's initial release in October 1962. However, in addition to his fee for orchestrating the James Bond Theme, Barry was allowed to perform a different orchestration of the theme on Columbia Records. This became a top ten hit in the U.K. The soundtrack album came out after the U.S. release of Dr. No in June 1963 with American single recordings of The James Bond Theme by Al Caiola and Leroy Holmes on United Artists Records and Si Zentner on Liberty Records. In addition to Barry's orchestration of the James Bond Theme several of the album's tracks were performed by Byron Lee and the Dragonaires who appear in the film performing Jump Up. The song Under the Mango Tree was performed by an uncredited Diana Coupland, Norman's wife at the time, backed by Ernest Ranglin on guitar. Ranglin also played on several other tracks. Other musicians to record for the soundtrack included Carlos Malcolm. None of the Eric Rogers-orchestrated tracks appear on the soundtrack album.1. James Bond Theme

Richard D. James Album (Awaiting Repress)Richard D. James' fourth, autobiographical' album as Aphex Twin is regarded as his 'drill n' bass' showpiece. Originally released in 1996, 'Richard D. James' continues the lineage of his digital era (beginning from the previous Aphex Twin album, '...I Care Because You Do'), where familiar, playful melody locks into aggressive, hyperspeed breakbeats and quasi-jungle rhythms.
This album also yielded the single 'Girl / Boy Song' which, memorably, uses a self-parodying, macabre image of grave, scribed 'Richard James - November 1968' as a sleeve image. Characteristically, 'Richard D. James' employs audio generated electronically, whilst furthering his ideas of more 'concrete' techniques such as sampling, distorting, looping and the use of human voice, physical instruments and environmental sound.

James Bond: Live and Let Die Soundtrack1973 Soundtrack Includes Paul McCartney & Wings Performing Live And Let Die!
Live and Let Die is the soundtrack to the eighth James Bond film of the same name. It was scored by George Martin. The title song was written by Paul and Linda McCartney and performed by Paul McCartney & Wings.
It was the first Bond film score not to involve John Barry.
Producers Saltzman and Albert Broccoli approached Paul McCartney to write the theme song and McCartney in turn asked Martin to record it for him. Impressed with the orchestration for the finished track, Saltzman and Broccoli considered Martin for the film's score.
Martin worked closely with director Guy Hamilton who described what the music should convey in each scene as it unfolds. Only very minor changes to the finished score were asked for. Martin felt that this was as much for Hamilton's accurate briefing.
The orchestra was conducted by Martin and recorded at AIR studios. The soundtrack was also released in quadrophonic.
Live and Let Die was the first time that a rock music arrangement was used to open a Bond film. It was also the first time that McCartney and Martin had worked together since Abbey Road in 1969. McCartney had been considered as title song composer for the previous Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever.
The Live and Let Die single was a major success in the U.S. and U.K. and continues to be a highlight of McCartney's live shows.1. Live and Let Die

John Lee's Barclay James Harvest - Live At Metropolis StudioLimited Edition of 750
December 2010 at Metropolis Studios, West London. 120 fans are squeezed into Studio A to witness at extremely close quarters a performance by a progressive rock legend. Leader John Lees introduces a set which includes a wealth of Barclay James Harvest classics and no one in the room was much more than ten feet from a band that is renowned for having played to hundreds of thousands on both sides of the Berlin Wall during the 1980s. It was during the 1970s that BJH made their mark with an impressive array of Mellotron-soaked mini-epics that owed more to Vaughan Williams than Chuck Berry. Today, of course, founder member Lees' version of the band have the full range of 21st century technology available to present what is a selection of the best of BJH - including the poignant Child Of The Universe, the symphonic Mockingbird and of course the concluding and timeless Hymn. It was in 2006 that principal songwriter and guitarist Lees toured the UK for the first time (with original member and keyboardist Woolly Wolstenhome, now sadly deceased) as John Lees' Barclay James Harvest. Sold out London shows, filmed for DVD release, testified to their appeal after a long absence from the stage and for the many fans not lucky enough to have attended the Metropolis show, this new live souvenir offers them an opportunity to once again be captivated by those much-loved BJH compositions.1.

UNIM-JMB-7821xJames Vincent McMorrow
We MoveWritten in constant transition - and recorded between Toronto, Dublin and London - 'We Move' is James Vincent McMorrow's most expansive, generous and ambitious record to date. There is, on the other hand, something more stripped-back - vulnerable, even - surfacing for the first time: far from the dense, protective imagery at the heart of 'Post Tropical', 'We Move' is ultimately a record open in its portrait of anxiety and social unease. For McMorrow, it's about celebrating mental fragility - and how we move forward in life - rather than "people listening to my songs and believing that I'm out in the forest all day long, thinking about trees. Because I'm actually at home, trying to convince myself to go out and get milk."
The first steps to 'We Move' took place in 2014, when James - having been asked to write for different artists' projects - started sketching out ideas for others on tour (and subsequently stopped over-analysing his own work). Intent on doing the opposite of everything he'd done thus far, McMorrow then came off the road, but kept exploring: first through Barcelona, then Canada, and stopping in Los Angeles for six particularly fish-out-of-water months, where the songs for the album crystallised. He returned to Dublin determined not to just produce another album himself, but to work with people who could articulate the unique world he heard in his head ("I grew up wanting to write songs like Neil Young but produce them like The Neptunes"). And so James reached out to a few key co-producers he'd met whilst travelling, who formed the backbone of 'We Move': namely, Nineteen85 (Drake, DVSN), Two Inch Punch (Sam Smith, Years & Years), and Frank Dukes (Kanye West, Rihanna). Mixing took place largely in Miami with one of McMorrow's all-time heroes, Jimmy Douglass - known for his work from Donny Hathaway through to Timbaland - who finessed the record's warm, vintage yet forward-thinking feel.
The result is an album about movement - geographically, mentally, emotionally - which remains focused on finding your place in that future. First track 'Rising Water' is starkly-produced and skyscraper-sized in its sense of catharsis ("I never once was sad for what I've done"): 'Evil', meanwhile, questions whether you might in fact be a bad person, because you don't see life the way other people do (its tone is celebratory rather than ominous, however). Heavier still is 'I Lie Awake Every Night', which sees James address for the first time the eating disorder he has battled since he was a child ("it's about lying in hospital when I was a kid, thinking I shouldn't be there, and trying to reconcile those two things"). 'We Move' reacts against McMorrow's instincts to obscure ideas such as this, and ultimately embraces a shared, collective awkwardness, and the idea that maybe we're all putting on a brave face in some way.
Beginning with Rising Water, 'We Move' continues a remarkable journey for the Dublin-born singer and songwriter, whose early work offered little clue as to the sounds and situations that would follow. It's a remarkably assured collection, informed by this idea that you might not have to listen to others when they tell you how they think life is supposed to go; and that as you grow up, you lose things along the way. Rather, 'We Move' suggests it's possible to keep what you want to keep, and lose what you want to lose.1. Rising Water
