    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!

    The Payback

    The Payback is a 1973 double album by James Brown. It was originally scheduled to become the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film Hell Up in Harlem.
    The Payback is considered a high point in Brown's recording career, and is now regarded by critics as a landmark funk album. Its revenge-themed title
    track, a #1 R&B hit, is one of his most famous songs and an especially prolific source of samples for record producers. Musically the album is largely
    based around cyclic grooves and jamming, but it also features departures into a softer soul-based sound on tracks like Doing the Best I Can.

    In The Jungle Groove

    In The Jungle groove is a compilation album by the great James Brown, released in August 1986 on Polydor Records. Originally issued to capitalize on
    the popularity of Brown's music in hip hop circles at the time, it includes the first album release of the much-sampled single Funky Drummer (1969),
    along with a selection of previously unreleased tracks, alternate takes, and remixes. The album's title is taken from a song Brown recorded in the studio in
    August 1970

    Forge Your Own Chains: Heavy Psychedelic Ballads & Dirges 1968-1974

    This compilation introduces a new direction for Now-Again Records and its owner, producer and famed crate-digger Egon. With the same detailed, no-stone-unturned approach he used for Deep Funk
    (The Funky 16 Corners, Cold Heat), he tackles beat-heavy global psychedelia with Forge Your Own Chains.


    "Those of us birthed into record collecting by the Hip Hop midwife revered Jimi Hendrix as well as James Brown. We searched for albums by Mulatu Astatke and Power of Zeus with the same fervor," Egon writes in his introduction to the comp.


    Forge Your Own Chains showcases music from all corners of the world: Colombia, Nigeria, Sweden, South Korea, Thailand and Iran. The focus - in keeping with Now-Again's tradition - is on melody, driving rhythms and accessibility. Not one song is included on this compilation because it is from a "rare" album. Certainly, many of these songs do spring from albums that exchange hands for many thousands of dollars and many of these songs have never seen reissue. But these songs are all beautiful in their own right and work to form a coherent album.


    Psychedelic records, long the mainstay of older, grizzled collectors and seemingly quaint, are, in the hands of Egon and those of his generation, giving up new ghosts. And, with comps like Forge Your Own Chains, inspiring new investigations into our not so distant (and still very much alive) musical past.

    Last November, Jack White's Third Man and John Fahey's Revenant issued The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, Volume One (1917-27), the first installment of the curious tale of America's most important record label. It was called spectacular (New York Times), unprecedented (Rolling Stone), breathtaking (Boing Boing), a cabinet of wonder, indeed (Pitchfork), and the most perfectly realized attempt to combine music and documentation (Fretboard Journal) and damnedest musical objet d'art (Nashville Scene) folks had ever seen.


    Third Man-Revenant now presents the final volume in the Paramount story - The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, Volume Two (1928-32).


    As Volume Two begins, Paramount is entitled to a breather - in the previous 5 years it's been home to giants like King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter, Blind Blake, Ethel Waters, Ma Rainey, Papa Charlie Jackson, Eubie Blake, Fletcher Henderson, Big Bill Broonzy, Roosevelt Sykes, James P. Johnson, Jaybird Coleman, Clarence Williams, and Fats Waller.


    But just as it seems the label might be losing steam, it begins a second act that threatens to dwarf its first. In its final 5 year push from 1928-32, Paramount embarks on a furious run for the ages, birthing the entire genre of Mississippi Delta blues and issuing some of the most coveted recordings in the history of wax - a staggering playlist including Skip James, Charley Patton, Son House, Tommy Johnson, Blind Roosevelt Graves, Willie Brown, King Solomon Hill, Tampa Red, Georgia Tom Dorsey, Little Brother Montgomery, Lottie Kimbrough, Rube Lacy, Meade Lux Lewis, Buddy Boy Hawkins, Ramblin' Thomas, Jaydee Short, George Bullet Williams, Cow Cow Davenport, Clifford Gibson, Ishman Bracey, Charlie Spand, Jabo Williams, Louise Johnson, Blind Joe Taggart, Geeshie Wiley & Elvie Thomas, and The Mississippi Sheiks.


    Paramount simply killed. But more than that, it changed how this country thought of itself. It was the first and most comprehensive chronicler of what America really sounded like in the 1920s and '30s - on its street corners, at its fish fries and country suppers, in its nightclubs and dance halls and showtents. In the process, Paramount - not some preservationist-minded enterprise like the Library of Congress - inadvertently created the most significant repository of this young nation's greatest art form.

    6 LPs feature tracks from the collection.


    USB Drive contains 800 digital tracks by 175 artists across the Paramount family of labels.

    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.

    Live At The Apollo

    Ranked 24/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Live At The Apollo left no doubt in anyone's mind that James Brown was a live, dynamic performer without peers and that his talent could come across just as strongly on tape as in person. It was a watershed album, both for the 'hardest working man in show business' and for the burgeoning soul music movement. Reissued here on Vinyl LP by Universal Records.

    The Birth Of Funk

    Nobody in New Orleans laid into the blues so low down and dirty as Buddy Bol-den, whose Funky Butt became a staple in the repertoire of the city's early jazz bands. Jacksonville, Florida, 1960. Charles 'Hungry' Williams mentors young Clayton Fillyau after he had just joined the James Brown band: 'I don't care where you put it on those drums, remember where '1' is and you'll never lose the time.' Listen to Hungry on Huey Smith's Talk To Me Baby and then listen to how Clayton turns it into a relentless breakbeat on James Brown's I've Got Money. Earl King's Trick Bag, prefiguring the Meters, is as good an example of early New Orleansfunk as can be found. Not everything on here was cut in New Orleans. New York singer Vernon Harrel's Slick Chick is held together by an intriguingly syncopated bass line that hints at late '60s Studio One dub. And in case you think any of this was new, listen to Zutty Singleton's drum break on Victoria Spivey's Funny Feathers from 1929. Or Earl Palmer's sixteenth notes, off-backbeat snare accents and double-tempo hi-hats in 1953 on Professor Longhair's Tipitina and Who's Foolin' You.

    Doin' It To Death

    For starters, this platter begins with one of the great intros of all time: "Ladies and gentlemen, there are seven acknowledged wonders of the
    world. You are about to witness the eighth "


    Lodged in a deep groove between the JB's' debut LP Food For Thought (1972) and the more complex and at-times political Damn Right, I Am
    Somebody (from 1974) sits the ridiculously vampy and infectious classic, Doing It To Death. First moving hips and making heads nod in 1973,
    the James Brown-produced, 5-song album is one big funk lick, broken up into many delicious moving parts.


    As with pretty much everything produced by the JB's - led by Fred Wesley with heavy help from a supporting cast that included saxophonist
    Maceo Parker, guitarists Jimmy Nolen and Hearlon "Cheese" Martin and drummer John "Jabo" Starks - all songs began and revolved around
    a devastating riff. The title track is most certainly guilty-as-charged, as it starts strutting right out of the gate and continues for just over 10
    minutes, driven by a guitar lick and MCed by the inimitable James Brown, with soloists stepping up and out while the song chugs on.


    The other centerpiece of the album is the 8-minute "You Can Have Watergate Just Gimme Some Bucks And I'll Be Straight," whose groove is
    interestingly teased two times before it arrives in full form. The song title itself is provocative, and the music keeps a stone-cold groove despite
    the less than cheery undertones. Again driven by an infectious guitar morsel, the breakdowns in this song gave sampling producers and DJs
    sweet dreams in the '80s, and Fred Wesley's trombone solo rides beautifully over the group's cries of "We need some money."


    Beyond the aforementioned sure-shots, the twitchy "More Peas," "La Di Da La Di Day" and the much jazzier, solo-heavy "Sucker" round out
    this incredible album. It's just another perfect example of how James Brown's funk machine could stop the world when they hit a groove.

    Live At The Apollo Volume II (Half-Speed Master)

    Abbey Road Half-Speed Master


    Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl And Housed In A Six-Panel Gatefold Sleeve


    Live At The Apollo, Volume II by James Brown and The Famous Flames was originally released in August 1968. A follow-up to the original 1963 album, Live at The Apollo, it too was recorded in at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York City.


    The original album and the 1987 CD release were both edited versions of the show while the 2xCD Deluxe Edition released in 2001 featured a more expanded live set including a 19-minute version of "It's a Man's Man's Man's World.".


    About These Abbey Road Half-Speed Masters:


    These releases will offer a superior vinyl experience with Half-Speed Mastering from Abbey Road. They have been exclusively re-mastered at Half Speed to bring you a new level of depth and clarity.


    This limited edition range, all pressed on 180-gram vinyl, come in deluxe packaging. The initial releases are all iconic deluxe edition titles from great Universal artists - Amy Winehouse, The Who, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Mike Oldfield.


    The albums were cut from high-resolution digital transfers from the best-known analogue tapes by Abbey Road mastering engineer Miles Showell, one of the foremost practitioners of this artisan process in the world today. Only minimal sympathetic equalization was applied to the transfers to keep everything as pure as possible. Also, as these are vinyl-only releases, Miles did not apply any digital limiting. This is added to almost all digital releases to make them appear to be loud and is responsible for the so-called "loudness war" and in almost every case is anything but natural and pure sounding.

    Life, Love And Leaving

    Features The Previously Unreleased Album Outtake, ''This Old Heart'' (Originally By James Brown), Which Had Gone Unheard For Over 15 Years.


    Features Eddie Hawrsh (The Black Crowes) On Bass.


    Originally released in 2001, the Detroit Cobras Life, Love and Leaving is the group's best-known effort, coming at a time when bands like the White Stripes and Dirtbombs were also releasing seminal albums that started picking up recognition outside of their collective hometown of Detroit. Hitting hard with songs by soul heavyweights like Solomon Burke (''Stupidity''), Mary Wells (''Bye Bye Baby''), Otis Redding (''Shout Bamalama''), the inimitable vocals of Rachel Nagy would no-doubt be a template from which folks like Amy Winehouse would work from years later. A landmark collection of covers.

    The Blues Brothers Original Soundtrack


    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Original 1980 Soundtrack


    First Pressing Of 2000 Numbered Copies On Blue Vinyl


    Comic actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd rightfully get credit for exposing many people to the music of Blues and R&B veterans. The soundtrack to their hugely successful musical comedy Blues Brothers was released on June 20, 1980 as the second album by the Blues Brothers Band, which also toured that year to promote the film.


    The rollicking remake of the Spencer Davis Group's Gimme Some Lovin' was a Billboard Top 20 hit, featuring an arrangement notable for the horn section that replaces Steve Winwood's rumbling organ work. Ray Charles has a good time with Shake a Tail Feather, and he's helped out by Jake and Elwood Blues (Belushi and Aykroyd, respectively). The cover of Solomon Burke's Everybody Needs Somebody to Love is a lot of fun, thanks to the great overall rhythm and Elwood's lightning-fast stage rap, while James Brown and the Reverend James Cleveland Choir provide a blast of gospel music on Old Landmark. Aretha Franklin's Think is explosive, and Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher is slyly irresistible.


    The first 2000 copies are numbered and pressed on blue vinyl!

    I Was Made To Love Her

    This album was rushed out to capitalize on the success of the title song, which was Stevie Wonder's biggest pop hit since Fingertips, Pt. 2, and would not be bettered until Superstition in 1972. There are several contributions from the Stevie Wonder team at Motown, covers of other Motown hits, and stabs at sounding like Ray Charles, James Brown, and Otis Redding. At 17, Stevie Wonder was becoming both a remarkable mimic, and an original talent on his own.

    I Learned The Hard Way

    Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are already well known as one of the most exciting acts in the nation for both their explosive live shows and their prolific output of gritty studio recordings. I Learned The Hardway is their fourth full-length release on Brooklyn's independent Daptone Records and it marks a bold step forward for a band who almost single handedly stewarded today's return of soul music to its more traditional sound.


    Produced by Bosco Mann and recorded on an Ampex eight-track tape machine by Gabriel Roth in Daptone Records' House of Soul studios, the record drips with a warmth and spontaneity rarely found since the golden days of Muscle Shoals and Stax. Sharon's raw power, rhythmic swagger, moaning soulfulness and melodic command set her fi rmly alongside Tina Turner, James Brown, Mavis Staples, and Aretha as a fi xture in the canon of soul music. From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in The Game Gets Old at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style Mama Don't Like My Man at the tail, the Dap-Kings groove seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. I Learned the Hard Way is the Daptone Sound at its fi nest.
