Beck-Ola (Deluxe Edition)Deluxe Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Green Vinyl With Gatefold Cover
Jeff Becks position in the pantheon of great electric guitarists is indisputable. As visionary a musician as Jimi Hendrix, Beck made his name as the second of three hall of fame stringbenders for the legendary Yardbirds (following in the Slowhand shoes of Eric Clapton and preceding the pre-Zep/session gigging Jimmy Page). Known for his blistering leads and the wild chances he took as one of the first axemen to widely employ feedback during a solo, Beck immediately launched his solo career upon leaving the Yardbirds in 1967. Together with vocalist Rod Stewart and multi-instrumentalist Ron Wood on bass, he cut a pair of albums that expanded on the greatness of his previous work.
A year after Truth, Beck & company returned with the even thicker sound of Beck-Ola, an album often sited as one of heavy metals firestarters. Along with Stewart, Wood and pile-driving new drummer Tony Newman, the album features the inspired addition of storied session man Nicky Hopkins on keyboards. Hopkins added welcome texture to the albums seven tracks, most notably on the Hopkins-composed Girl From Mill Valley. Elsewhere, group tears through two Elvis Presley covers and four band compositions with an intensity that practically leaps from the stylus to the speakers.
Could a band this heavy, this hard-hitting last? Unfortunately no, it could not. Following the completion of the album, the group splintered on the eve of the Woodstock festival with Stewart and Wood leaving to join the Faces. Of course, Beck went on to future triumphs in a variety of genres and styles and Stewart and Wood found wider fame and fortune as well. How fortunate, then, that we have this time capsule from June, 1969, to document their seminal collaboration. Relive those electrifying moments on this superb Sundazed Music reissue, sourced directly from the original Epic analog session tapes and purposely pressed on high-definition vinyl. Its guaranteed to leave you All Shook Up!1. All Shook Up

Rough And ReadyJeff Beck is truly a worldwide gift to rock music and guitar enthusiasts everywhere. There will never be another Jeff Beck, a guitar genius who has enthralled generations of aspiring musicians and music lovers with the many fine recordings he has made for the past five decades.
Celebrating five decades in the music business, this English native initially captivated millions of kids in the 60's with his first recordings with The Yardbirds. He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar licks and dynamic presence on the stage. As Jeff moved on and started a stunning solo career with his first masterpiece Truth (FRM-26413), a few years later The Jeff Beck Group emerged with his friends Cozy Powell (drums), Bob Tench (vocals), Max Middleton (keyboards) and Clive Chaman (bass) recording the monumental supergroup LP Rough And Ready.
The 1971 smash LP kicks things off with the hard rocker Got the Feeling. This radio and fan favorite graced the air- waves on the ever growing FM radio format and helped bolster even further the rest of the Rough And Ready album with follow up hits like the soulful tour de force of Situation featuring a great vocal from future Humble Pie crooner Bob Tench and a stellar keyboard workout from Max Middleton.
More solid numbers from the band include the great medley of New Ways/Train Train, the power ballad rocker Jody, plus the prog-rock champion Max's Tune. All in all, making Beck's third solo effort one of his most revered in his long lasting and huge catalog of classic recordings.
Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing new ways of using technique, distortion and effects to a whole new generation of guitar players, Jeff Beck's Rough And Ready is truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues artists.
Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Jeff Beck, his arsenal of fine recordings already on our label. That is why we are so very proud to announce another fine installment in The Jeff Beck/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his third legendary masterpiece Rough And Ready.

from hundreds of musicians the world over. The record includes the studio-quality debut of songs previously only played live either by Beck himself or at
one of the handful of Song Reader concerts staged over the last two years. The most recent of these was presented by the L.A. Philharmonic in
partnership with McSweeney's and Warby Parker at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on November 24, 2013. Described by The Los Angeles
Times as an "expertly delivered and received night another big step in Beck's long, fascinating evolution," the show's highlights included Jarvis Cocker's
interpretively danced "Why Did You Make Me Care? and Jack Black's borderline frightening "We All Wear Cloaks," the latter of which makes its recorded

Rock n Roll Party; Honoring Les Paul (Limited Edition) (Awaiting Repress)Guitar legend Jeff Beck continually reaches for new heights and successfully creates exciting performances with each new album he releases. No stranger to the stages of the world, a Jeff Beck concert is always an event. Whether playing to sell out stadiums,theatres or smaller intimate club settings, his performances are second to none.
It is no secret that Les Paul was a big influence on Jeff Beck. The two icons were good friends, and Jeff always wanted to do something special for this late pioneer of the music world. He enlisted a couple of his closest friends like new sensations Imelda May and Darrel Higham, jazz great Trombone Shorty, the legendary Gary U.S. Bonds, and Stray Cats founder Brian Setzer and delivered what comes naturally to an artist of his caliber, a truly amazing one-time concert performance for the history books.
Jeff Becks Rock N Roll Party: Honoring Les Paul has been a very well-received compact disc release this year, and now it is with much honor to announce the first time Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of this amazing recording. Mastered impeccably from the original ATCO Records/Deuce Records tapes for vinyl by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, this deluxe limited edition 2 LP set truly is a great gift for the upcoming holiday season.
Filled with four artfully mastered sides of non-stop artistry, Jeff Beck and friends create the atmosphere of a party that never stops!
Solid openers like Double Talkin Baby and Cruisin featuring the soaring vocals of Darrel Higham kick this bash into high gear. Even Jeff Becks old band The Yardbirds get a nod with a stunning rendition of The Train Kept A Rollin.
Then, theres the one and only Imelda May. One of the most talked about, new and exciting stars in the music world today. Her arresting voice and Jeff Becks unmatched guitar technique is a duo made in heaven. Both artists are beautifully displayed on their amazing interpretations of Les Paul and Mary Fords hits How High The Moon, Vaya Con Dios, Mockingbird Hill and others.
Make room for even more rockers as the super high energy band and Maestro Jeff Beck take on top notch instrumentals like Henry Mancinis classic Peter Gunn, the California surf sounds of Apache and of course Santo and Johnnys ballad of all ballads Sleepwalk.
Even more Imelda May and Darrel Higham vocals excel further, as a parade of guest stars enter the stage with the fantastic classic rock and soul sounds of Gary U.S. Bonds with the rockin New Orleans. Plus, the amazing closer with Brian Setzer and his solid interpretation of Eddie Cochrans Twenty Flight Rock..make this wonderful album an unbelievable one-of-a-kind event for sure!

TruthJeff Becks position in the pantheon of great electric guitarists is indisputable. As visionary a musician as Jimi Hendrix, Beck made his name as the second of three hall of fame stringbenders for the legendary Yardbirds (following in the Slowhand shoes of Eric Clapton and preceding the pre-Zep/session gigging Jimmy Page). Known for his blistering leads and the wild chances he took as one of the first axemen to widely employ feedback during a solo, Beck immediately launched his solo career upon leaving the Yardbirds in 1967. Together with vocalist Rod Stewart and multi-instrumentalist Ron Wood on bass, he cut a pair of albums that expanded on the greatness of his previous work.
In late 1966, Beck began work on Truth, his solo LP debut. Recording with his core group of Stewart, Wood and drummer Mickey Waller, Beck ventured far beyond the established rock guitar lexicon, forging a unique style which would influence generations of future acolytes. The LPs grand masterstroke, Becks Bolero, is recognized as one of the greatest guitar instrumentals of all time. Notably, the session musicians on this track represented the cream of the British rock scene: Jimmy Page on guitar, John Paul Jones on bass, Nicky Hopkins on piano and a Moon-lighting drummer from a mega-band who could not be listed in the credits for contractual reasons. Rumor had it he could see for miles, though.
The influence the album inflicted on the current and future rock scene could hardly be overstated. It showed the way forward toward a heavier, blues-based guitar sound (hello, Led Zeppelin) and provided essential instruction to guitarists from Tom Scholz to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The opening track, Shapes of Things, reworked a Yardbirds song and literally built a bridge from Becks immediate past to his present. The albums cover of the Willie Dixon classic, You Shook Me, beat Zeps version to wax by several months. Throughout the disc, Becks razor-sharp fretwork and enormous tonal palette surprises and amazes at every turn.

Blow-Up SoundtrackBlow-Up is a soundtrack album by Herbie Hancock featuring music composed for Michelangelo Antonioni's cult film Blow-Up, released in 1966. Musically the songs evoke the ambience of swinging Sixties' London with grooves that create effective bluesy Jazz moods on the slow pieces, and funky ones on the up-tempo tracks.
The album features performances by Hancock on keys, Freddie Hubbard and Joe Newman on trumpet, Phil Woods and Joe Henderson on sax, Ron Carter on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Rumours go that either the fabled Jimmy Smith or Paul Griffin played the Hammond organ on this record.
Rock fans remember the film and the soundtrack for the inclusion of a rare Yardbirds number, Stroll On (actually, an adaptation of Tiny Bradshaw's The Train Kept A-Rollin'), one of only three songs they recorded with both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page on guitars. The bassline to Bring Down The Birds was sampled by Deee-Lite for their 1990 hit single Groove Is In The Heart featuring Bootsy Collins.1. Main Title - "Blow Up"

BBC The Radiophonic Workshop
180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
Available On Vinyl For The 1st Time
The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, set up in 1958, was originally created as a sound effects unit for BBC Radio and TV programs. Pioneering new forms of drama during the late 1950s and early 60s demanded innovative and original use ofmusic and sound.The art of what became known as sounddesign began in the cramped undergroundstudiosof the Radiophonic Workshop at the BBC Maida Vale complex in London. Their early explorations into sound drew on the principles of musique concrete, early tape manipulation techniques and primitive oscillators and tone circuits built by technicians at the workshop. As technology developed and the synthesizer, tape technology, computers and early digital sampling emerged the Radiophonic Workshop maintained an their position at the leading edge of electronic music and sound design.
The vast body of work that emerged between 1960 and 1997 has influenced generations of musicians both within electronica and more widely in the Rock, Progressive and Pop field. Groundbreaking work such as Delia' Darbyshire's 1963 Doctor Who Theme (still the high water mark of experimental music), sound effects albums, works of early electronica and popular favourites such as Blake's 7 and The Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy have ensured the RWS a place at electronica's top table. From the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Vangelis to Orbital, The Chemical Brothers and beyond, their legacy lives on in the sounds and textures of so much contemporary music. But it isn't just musicians who have drawn on their work.
The technical development of the studio and modern recording techniques owes them a great debt too. Sound engineer Roger Mayer, who supplied effects pedals to Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, is just one of many engineers for whom their work proved inspirational. He described the Workshop as, ''the great unsung heroes of British electronica.''
These two records, recorded in 1968 and 1975 respectively, were released at the height of The Radiophonic Workshop's influence. They showcase the dawning of processed sound, treated sounds and sound design.
Quirky and irreverent BBC Radiophonic Music was originally put out as a specialist demonstration library disc for BBC drama producers. In 1971 the BBC released it commercially. This is the first time it has been made available on vinyl in its first and original form.
The Radiophonic Workshop from 1975 was a compilation of the best-known of the Radiophonic Workshop's output to date. This is the first time it has seen a vinyl reissue in its original form.
Both albums have been remastered for vinyl from the original tapes by the Radiophonic Workshop's archivist Mark Ayres. Pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.1. Malcolm Clarke - La Grande Pièce De La Foire De La Rue Delaware

With stellar musicians like Max Middleton (keyboards), Phil Chenn (bass), and Richard Bailey (drums/percussion), plus beautiful string arrangements by George Martin, Beck and Co. truly delivered a historic masterpiece with this classic album.

Emotion And CommotionImport
For his first studio album in seven years, Grammy-winning guitarist Jeff Beck returns with an eclectic mix of tracks that find the guitar virtuoso accompanied by a handpicked cast of talented musicians, as well as several songs accompanied by a 64-piece orchestra. Beck recorded Emotion & Commotion late last year at Sarm Studios in London with award-winning producers Steve Lipson and Trevor Horn. To create the albums diverse sound, Beck used a number of musicians, including appearances by frequent collaborators Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Jason Rebello (keyboards), and Tal Wilkenfeld (bass). The album also includes contributions from a trio of singers: Imelda May (Lilac Wine), Olivia Safe (Elegy For Dunkirk), and Grammy-winner Joss Stone (I Put A Spell On You and Theres No Other Me).1.

But Seriously FolksThere arent too many legends like guitar hero Joe Walsh. From his mid-west beginnings with The James Gang, he racked up enough significant sales and airplay to warrant his very own massive solo career, then performing later with Barnstorm and then three decades plus with The Eagles.
As if a whirlwind tour and unbelievable album success with The Eagles Hotel California werent enough for this spirited guitarist, Walsh went back into the studio in 1978 and created his own top chart platter But Seriously, Folks.
Filled with eight unprecedented Walsh rockers, But Seriously, Folks was truly one of his most enduring classics in large part due to the eight minute burner Lifes Been Good. This song will forever be associated with the '70s rock superstar lifestyle binge as it was also a featured song in the rock movie soundtrack extravaganza FM.
Even more time tested tracks like the blues rocker At The Station, AOR classics Over And Over and Tomorrow plus the brilliant and melodic Indian Summer made this the album of choice for many rock radio programmers for over a year upon its initial release.
As a first installment in their Joe Walsh 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, Friday Music is very pleased to present his career masterwork But Seriously, Folks as a first time ever high quality vinyl release. Mastered from the original Asylum Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck/ Deep Purple/Yes) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray.

Whenever Robin Trower releases an album, it's always a musical event.
As the third in a perfect hat trick of multifaceted career defining albums, the
legendary British guitarist (co-founder of Procol Harum) unleashed one of the
most popular albums in his ever enduring catalog in 1975, For Earth Below.
This masterwork unites the guitar hero again with his powerful team
of world class musicians, the late great James Dewar on simmering lead
vocals & bass, and the powerful drum work of Bill Lordan. The brilliant guitar
shredder and his amazing band truly throw down some of his classiest and
hardest driving, best known repertoire for this Robin Trower and Procol
Harum band mate production by Matthew Fisher.
arum band mate production by Matthew Fisher.
The album begins with his hard rocker Shame The Devil. The tune finds
Robin Trower blazing on some very solid power riffs making this the ultimate
opening track for the listener.
The soulful hypnotic blues of It's Only Money has the tremendous voicing
of Robin's guitar with Bill Lordan's fine percussive elements and James'
signature vocal work throughout, truly making this one of the finest songs in
Trower's four decade career as a solo artist.
Always an astute bluesman, Robin Trower's Confessin' Midnight retains
a solid groove which allows the progressive guitarist to power away with
some very intricate fret work, making this album the classic that it is.
Hard rock fusion continues with more classics like his powerful funk
infused Alethea, the hard rock champion, Gonna Be More Suspicious, and
the ultimate Trower title smash For Earth Below, truly rewarding his fans with
another masterpiece album in his gold and platinum career!

The Promise (Awaiting Repress)
• Play 33 1/3 Series
• 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl Pressed By MMP
• Gatefold Jacket With Magic-Eye Graphic & Black Poly-Lined Inner Sleeves
• Includes 8-Page Booklet
• Project Designed & Sleeve Made By Khiov
The 'Play 33 1/3 LP Series' is a Vinyl LP project including masterpiece albums which have never been released on LP. The albums are released by Universal Music Korea on LP for the first time and the heavyweight vinyl LP is pressed in Germany. Khiov designs the project, reforms the original artworks for the LP size and precisely made the sleeves.
John McLaughlin's 1995 album was originally released on CD only on Verve Records. The cover features a Magic-Eye graphic that contains a hidden image. McLaughlin is joined by artists such as Jeff Beck, Al Di Meola, Michael Brecker and more!
Originally issued in 1996 when he was 54, the Promise offers a summation of all the places John McLaughlin has been in his career, and points directly toward his future. Featuring a wide range of musicians including appearances by the Free Spirits, the Guitar Trio, and an electric version of Shakti, the Promise is easily the most wide-ranging and diverse offering of McLaughlin's long career. Its contents encompass everything from straight post-bop and swinging soul-jazz to fusion to modern takes on East Indian music as it meets the West. As if this weren't enough, there are even moments with spoken word laced throughout, such as a verse of Dante read by Stefania Bombi toward the end of his scorching, funky, soul-jazz number Thelonius Melodius with B-3 organist Joey DeFrancesco and drummer Dennis Chambers. The set kicks off with one of its finest moments, a guitar-to-guitar reading of John Lewis' Django with Jeff Beck (bassist Pino Palladino, drummer Mark Mondesir, and drummer Tony Hymas round it out). Beck's solo is first; it is expansive as it moves from a gorgeous restating of the melody through slinky harmonic extrapolations. McLaughlin's answer is ambitious and intuitive. They then move toward one another and the melody, complementing each other perfectly. El Ciego is a complex, flamenco-tinged jazz number with McLaughlin trading knotty lines and soulful solos with Al di Meola and Paco de Lucia. Jazz Jungle is late 20th century fusion at its blazing best with Michael Brecker, Chambers, Don Alias, James Genus, and Jim Beard beginning almost nebulously before ratcheting the tempo and idea palettes to dizzying heights (Brecker is particularly brilliant). The Wish, with Zakir Hussein, Nishat Khan, and Trilok Gurtu, looks deeply into Indian classical music balanced by a European gaze. McLaughlin's engagement with Khan's sitar creates nearly rapturous expression, all the while contained inside a texture that is as atmospheric as it is exotic. Shin Jin Rui employs the same band as Jazz Jungle, with the exception of the saxophone, played by David Sanborn. His playing is riskier than on his own records, his alto juxtaposed with McLaughlin's guitar, a study in funky, electric jazz modernism. The set closes with a lovely all-acoustic reading of Jimmy Rowles' The Peacocks with guitarist Phillipe Loi and bassist Yan Maresz, and a verse by Lorca read by Susana Beatrix as an end cap. Ultimately, the Promise stands as one of McLaughlin's towering achievements as a guitarist and leader.

Rhythm & BluesDouble LP Features Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart And Aerosmith Members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry And Brad Whitford!
Six-time Grammy Award winner and 2012 Kennedy Center Honoree Buddy Guy releases his studio album, Rhythm & Blues, on RCA Records. The follow-up to his 2010 Grammy Award winning album Living Proof, this double-disc masterpiece features first time studio collaborations with A-list artists Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart and Aerosmith members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford.
Produced by Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge (Skin Deep, Living Proof), Rhythm & Blues captures the 76 year-young Guy at the peak of his creativity. Replete with heartfelt vocals, straightforward lyrics and mesmerizing guitar licks, Rhythm & Blues not only exemplifies how blues continues to be the foundation of all genres of today's music, it also illustrates why Guy has been influential in the careers of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more.
The Rhythm disc includes rhythm and blues-style blues with deep grooves, such as the Junior Wells' 1960 hit "Messin With The Kid" featuring Kid Rock, the touching "One Day Away" with Keith Urban, and "What You're Gonna Do About Me," a rousing duet with Beth Hart. Guy rounds out the disc with "Best In Town," "Whiskey Ghost," Guitar Slim's "Well I Done Got Over It" and more.
The Blues disc taps into the genre's rich history with "Meet Me In Chicago," "I Could Die Happy," "Never Gonna Change" and "All That Makes Me Happy Is The Blues." Aerosmith's Tyler, Perry and Whitford contribute to the musical lesson with "Evil Twin" while Gary Clark, Jr. joins Guy on "Blues Don't Care."
In a career that spans nearly 50 years with over 50 albums released, the incomparable Buddy Guy recently added the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors and NARM Chairman's Award for Sustained Creative Achievement to his long list of achievements. Guy is the recipient of 30 awards and accolades, including 6 Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W. C. Handy Awards), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the first annual Great Performer of Illinois Award, a Billboard Music Awards' Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, the Presidential National Medal of Arts, in addition to being listed as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone.LP 1

Loud HailerLOUD HAILER, legendary guitarist Jeff Beck's first studio album in six years, combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love.
Loud hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn't shy about speaking its mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains, I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.
To help him write the 11 tracks on LOUD HAILER, Beck enlisted two fierce young females from London - singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Beck produced LOUD HAILER with Filippo Cimatti, who also works with Rosie and Carmen. In addition to the core trio, the album also features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti, who were both recruited by Cimatti.
Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on LOUD HAILER, which is then rounded out by two signature Beck instrumentals.1. The Revolution Will Be Televised

'Wired' is Jeff Beck's 1976 solo album. It was this album that started a fruitful collaboration with former Mahavishnu Orchestra keyboardist Jan Hammer whom Beck toured with shortly thereafter. Beck and Hammer interplay extensively between each other by making his synthesizer sound almost identical to a guitar. The result was a more synthesized sound, hence its title, 'Wired'. Some tracks include members of the 'Blow by Blow' lineup. These tracks were recorded during the 'Blow by Blow' sessions but were left off that album and carried over to 'Wired. One of the most highly praised tracks is Beck's interpretation of the Charles Mingus classic 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat'.1. Led Boots
