    Look Sharp

    Includes Smash Hits Is She Really Going Out With Him, One More Time, Sunday Papers


    100% Analog Mastering From Real Analog Tapes!


    Jacket: Old Style Debossed Single-Jacket Printed By Stoughton on Heavy Stock


    100 Best Debut Albums of All Time- Rolling Stone


    Okay, I know that Joe Jackson isn't exactly an unknown, but how many of you revere (or even own) this, his first album. And what an album it is! As well as the timeless Is She Really Going Out With Him? you get One More Time, Sunday Papers, Happy Loving Couples, Baby Stick Around and Fools In Love, most of them on a first side that hits it out of the park. Indeed, if it wasn't for Fools (possibly the best song here) many a record out there would be mint condition on side two. Happy coincidence meant that Jackson's poignant and acerbic observations on life and love, along with his impressive musical training and heritage collided headlong with the UK New Wave, opening wide the opportunities for his bitter-sweet songs.


    His material and delivery draw inevitable comparisons with Elvis Costello, but for me, Jackson is a cut above our Declan. Of course, that might be home-town familiarity speaking and Joe and the boys were an ever-present part of the live music wall-paper while I was at college, but then The Cure, The Banshees and The Attractions were too, if on a more revolving basis, so he had plenty of competition for my attention and affections. But what makes this album stick is the sheer quality of the lyrics. Even an out and out rocker like One More Time has an observant intelligence and almost painful honesty, while Fools and Is She have stood the test of time, shored up by the barbed familiarity of their outsider's stance and subtly twisted viewpoint. These are songs that speak not just for their generation but all the generations that have followed.


    The vocal is all angst and attitude, with driven riffs, bass that goes deep and drums that stay hit. What's not to like about a record that captures the life and energy of a classic four-piece rock band in full, uninhibited, unabashed overdrive. Me - I love it! -Roy Gregory,


    Look Sharp! is sourced from the best tape currently available, a beautifully preserved ½" "safety copy" of the original stereo master. When mastering this LP we compared what we were getting off the tape to an original A&M UK LP. While great sounding overall, the original LP is of course a very edgy sounding New Wave, post-punk record with a brashness that borders on being outright bright sounding. Where the aggressive top -end energy is concerned, the tapes showed no discenible age! We were able to maintain that grungy edge, but also restore the driving bass lines and bottom-end foundation that were on these tapes. The result is the best-sounding Look Sharp! anyone's ever heard, with all the drive and pop of the original UK release, but with superb tonal balance, imaging and clarity. The definitive issue of this iconic New Wave classic!

    I'm The Man

    Includes New-Wave Classics: It's Different for Girls, On Your Radio and Kinda Kute


    100% Analog Mastering From Real Analog Tapes!


    Deluxe Old Style Single-Pocket Gatefold Printed By Stoughton


    Great tunes, edgy vocal performances, and cutting lyrics. -Ultimate Classic Rock


    Astonishingly released within months of Jackson's 1979 debut album Look Sharp!, I'm the Man is another tight and inspired set of power-pop that features some of Jackson's best and most timeless tunes. Many of the songs here like "On Your Radio," "Kinda Kute," and the title track "I'm the Man" fall right in line with the punchy guitar riffs and pounding bass that made Look Sharp! such a driving force. In fact, this was the last album Jackson would make in this new-wave vein for over 20 years. Jackson followed I'm the Man with only one more album featuring the tight ensemble featured here- Graham Maby (bass), Gary Sanford (guitar) and Tony Houghton (drums)- and creatively restless soul that he is didn't return to this brand of power pop until reuniting that lineup for 2003's underrated Volume 4.


    I doubt it was possible to listen to I'm the Man in 1979, and predict the subsequent ska-inspired Beat Crazy or 1982's ode to jazz, Night and Day. But we do hear the songwriter growing into his powers with "It's Different for Girls," one of his strongest and most lyrically perceptive songs, and one with decades of staying power; one of Jackson's great live set pieces today is a solo piano arrangement of that song that's as arresting as the original in some ways. Jackson would famously broaden his influences in later albums and his catalog is nothing if not diverse. While Jackson's greatest commercial success was Night and Day, Look Sharp! and I'm the Man are new-wave classics that improve with every listen!

    Chronicling the three concerts Joe Jackson gave German television between 1980 and 1983, this captures several different phases in the ever-shifting Jackson's career, including the punky beginning, the ska-inflected Beat Crazy, and the sophisticated pop of Night and Day, and throughout Jackson and his band are in top form.

    Night And Day


    100% Analog Mastering From Real Analog Tapes!


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio


    Dead Quiet 180-Gram Vinyl Pressed At RTI


    Exquisitely Restored Cover Art Printed By Stoughton


    Intervention Records is thrilled to announce the addition of the smash hit Night and Day to its series of 100% analog vinyl reissues of Joe Jackson's early catalog. Night and Day joins IR's AAA reissues of Jackson's 1979 New Wave classics Look Sharp! and I'm the Man.


    Jazzy and sophisticated, Night and Day was Jackson's breakout hit with the MTV staple Steppin' Out and the achingly pretty Breaking Us in Two providing the sharpest highlights. This is a brash, stylish and kinetic big city record!


    All three titles were mastered 100% analog by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from phenomenal sounding 1/2 safety copies of the original stereo master tapes. All of the top-end energy and "snap" of the original LPs is preserved, while the bass foundation is fully restored to make these new Intervention reissues the definitive listening experience for these classic LPs!


    By working with artist Tom Vadakan and the artisans at Stoughton Printing IR insures that the album art is as stunning as the superlative sonics. Night and Day's original-release gatefold has been faithfully and beautifully restored, and Look Sharp! and I'm the Man are substantially upgraded. Look Sharp! features a debossed cover on heavy stock that not only imitates the rough texture found on only the earliest UK pressings, but improves on those rare originals. I'm the Man's original inner sleeve lyrics and images have been expanded to the interior of a gorgeous single-pocket gatefold.

    Joe Jackson - Collected


    180-Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Gatefold Sleeve


    High-Quality PVC Protective Sleeve


    Featuring ''Fools In Love'', ''Is She Really Going Out With Him?'' And ''It's Different For Girls''


    Joe Jackson's debut single, ''Is She Really Going Out With Him?'', was not an immediate hit; however, by the time his debut album Look Sharp! was released, the song had reached charts in the U.K. and U.S., earning him a gold record. For the follow-up, he produced the top 5 hit ''It's Different For Girls'', Joe received the highest musical accolade of the Netherlands, the Edison Award.


    After two edgy new wave pop records, his next tracks included some reggae influences such as the tracks ''One to One'' and ''Mad At You'', while ''Jumpin' Jive'' - recorded with jazz musicians - was full of old jump blues and swing tunes.


    The huge commercial success came with his crafted pop songs ''Steppin' Out'' and jazzy ''Breaking Us In Two'' climbing the charts worldwide. Joe Jackson produced even jazzier hits in 1984 such as ''Happy Ending'', (a duet with Elaine Caswell), ''Be My Number Two'' and ''You Can't Get What You Want''.


    The album Big World (1986), a live album of entirely new material including ''Home Town'', was recorded during six concerts. It is not a regular live album though, the audience was asked to be quiet during the songs and the applause was edited out.


    The pop song ''Nineteen Forever'' was part of a larger construction from the album Blaze Of Glory, designed to tell a semi-autobiographical story. In 1991 Joe Jackson decided to abandon pop once and for all in favor of more serious music. It spawned the track ''Stranger Than Fiction''.

    Summer In The City: Live In New York (Pre-Order)

    First Time Ever On Vinyl!

    Remastered From New High-Res Master Files By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio

    Double LP Set, Ultra-Quiet 180-Gram Vinyl Pressed At RTI

    Beautiful ''Old-Style'' Gatefold Printed By Stoughton

    Intervention Records is thrilled to bring Joe Jackson's Summer in the City Live in New York to vinyl for the very first time! Previously available only on CD, Summer in the City joins IR's wildly successful vinyl reissues of Jackson's early New Wave classics Look Sharp!, I'm the Man and Night and Day.

    Summer in the City's repertoire is an amazing bridge that spans the greatest hits of Jackson's early canon with stunning new arrangements and covers from other great songwriters. Jackson classics like ''Fools in Love,'' ''You Can't Get What You Want'' and ''It's Different for Girls'' meet with covers as diverse as Duke Ellington's ''Mood Indigo,'' The Beatles' ''Eleanor Rigby'' and Steely Dan's ''King of the World.''

    Summer in the City was mastered to vinyl by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from brand-new high-res master files. Summer in the City was recorded live in New York City in August of 1999 by Steve Remote and Co-Producer Sheldon Steiger. Sony's archivists and Battery Studios' Mike Piacentini compiled new high-res digital master files from the original DATs with the final mixes, and IR consulted with Remote and Steiger on key aspects of the recording to ensure the best possible source files were used. The result is an absolute sonic stunner, brought to new life on this double LP set!

    Summer in the City's original album art has been rebuilt into a beautiful gatefold jacket by IR's art director Tom Vadakan.

    Bags Meets Wes

    When Wes Montgomery made his first amazing impact on the New York jazz scene at the end of the 1950s, a great many established stars actively sought out to record with him. Milt Jackson was one of the few for whom the guitarist felt an equal affinity. For one thing, they shared a strong love for the blues and Wes had learned, through years of playing with his brother Buddy, to value the vibes/guitar sound. To support this memorable meeting of thoroughly compatible jazz masters, Riverside assembled one of the most cohesive recording rhythm sections of its day in Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones.

    Rockin' With Wanda!

    Jackson's third LP, Rockin' With Wanda! was originally released in 1960. Her finest album, it contains a dozen sides waxed between 1956 and 1959. Included are the iconic rockabilly hits, Fujiyama Mama, Honey Bop, Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad, Rock Your Baby, and the self-penned Mean Mean Man. In contrast, You've Turned to a Stranger is sung as a twangy country ballad, and I Gotta Know splits in time between rockabilly and waltz. The great Buck Owens adds world-class guitar picking and hot licks, and on some cuts, her own band, The Poe Kats, are captured with black rockabilly keyboardist Big Al Downing. Also featuring accompaniment by Joe Maphis and Ralph Mooney, among other luminaries, Wanda Jackson is utterly authoritative on everything she sings.

    Town Hall Party 1958

    Just turned 21 and beautiful beyond words, Wanda Jackson ripped through a red-hot, live Town Hall Party rockabilly session in 1958 that helped define the parameters of this raw, young music. Discovered singing on an Oklahoma radio station only two years earlier by honky-tonk recording star Hank Thompson and encouraged to cut loose musically by genre superstar/touring partner (and onetime boyfriend) Elvis Presley, Jackson was a perfect fit for Town Hall Party, the Los Angeles-based TV show that had already welcomed sets by rockin' luminaries Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins and Eddie Cochran. Backed by old friend and King of the Strings guitarist Joe Maphis, Jackson was in her element for the Town Hall Party session, tearing into Mean, Mean Man, a career-defining tune she'd recorded only a few months earlier. Highlights of Jackson's set also include Rock Your Baby, her current Capitol Records single, and Alone (With You), a Faron Young chart-topper, as well as her show-stopping finale, Jackson roaring through Hard Headed Woman, a scorcher from Elvis' current movie, King Creole. Jackson would soon become a substantial force on the country music charts, specializing in aching, honky tonk ballads for the rest of her career. Still touring today to rabid fan reaction, Jackson has never forgotten her red-hot rockabilly roots. And no live session ever caught Wanda Jackson as wild and rocking as she was on Town Hall Party in 1958, now available on Sundazed's high-definition, ten-inch vinyl.

    Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School


    The Warren Zevon/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrate 3 Decades Of His Legendary Rock Masterpiece Featuring His Friends Joe Walsh, Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley, Glenn Frey And Jackson Browne


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Elektra Records Tapes


    For an artist who first gained success as a songwriter with superstars like The Turtles, Linda Ronstadt, and
    Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon's own acclaimed recordings proved to be a major force on the music scene for many
    decades. His music transcended all genres of rock and pop music styles, fusing melodic landscapes with thought
    provoking and somewhat controversial lyrical content during his successful reign on the album and radio charts.


    After reaching platinum heights with his very popular Excitable Boy LP (Friday Music 9006), his amazing follow-up album Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School hit the rock charts again thanks to the remake of The Yardbirds classic
    A Certain Girl as well as his smash collaboration with Bruce Springsteen on Jeannie Needs a Shooter.


    The twelve track masterpiece is loaded with some even more time honored Warren Zevon classics like the rockers Play It All Night Long, Wild Age and Junglework, as well as melodic ballads like Empty-Handed Heart featuring his
    superstar friend Linda Ronstadt on vocals, plus his collaboration with T-Bone Burnett on Bed of Coals.


    The Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School sessions featured the musical talents of not only Warren Zevon but his
    superstar friends like Jackson Browne, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Don Felder from The Eagles, David
    Lindley, J.D. Souther and the aforementioned songstress Linda Ronstadt.


    This Warren Zevon masterpiece has been out of print on vinyl now for over two decades, however, Friday Music
    is now very honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl limited edition of Warren Zevon's classic
    Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School.


    Mastered impeccably from the original Elektra Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Warren Zevon/Boz Scaggs/Elvis
    Presley), this amazing rock classic truly shines once again in the audiophile vinyl domain.


    To enhance your 180 Gram Vinyl listening, we have also included the original artwork elements in a super limited
    gatefold style LP cover, filled with the original lyrics, and rare record cover sized art not seen in years.


    The legacy of Warren Zevon continues with his 1980 classic recording Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School
    finally available once again on an impeccably mastered 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl only from your friends at
    Friday Music.

    Bags Meets Wes!

    Milt Jackson was 38 when, in December 1961, he co-led this superb hard-bop date with the distinctive guitarist Wes Montgomery. A jazzman who was as opinionated as he was gifted, Jackson wouldn't hesitate to tell you exactly what he thought of a musician -- so when he praised Montgomery, you knew his praise was genuine. Not surprisingly, the boppers prove to be quite compatible on Bags Meets Wes, which finds them co-leading an all star-quintet that also includes pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Philly Joe Jones (who shouldn't be confused with swing drummer Jo Jones). Although Jackson and Montgomery prove what lyrical ballad players they could be on the standard Stairway to the Stars, ballads aren't a high priority on this album. Instead, the improvisers put more of their energy into the blues -- and the 12-bar format serves them well on Sam Sack, Blue Roz, and S.K.J. Equally strong are hard-swinging versions of Montgomery's Jingles and Benny Golson's Stablemates.

    Step Back

    Blues legend Johnny Winter will release a new studio album, Step Back, via Megaforce Records. The album, the followup to 2011's Roots, will find Winter exploring a more aggressive vintage-blues style.


    The album also will feature a host of special guests, including Eric Clapton, Ben Harper, Billy Gibbons, Joe Perry, Dr. John, Leslie West, Brian Setzer and Joe Bonnamassa.


    "If there's good people, other good musicians, people enjoy it. I just love it, Winter says. [Step Back] is just to bring it to the people of today who haven't listened to the old music. It's better than anything they hear today.


    Produced by Winter's guitarist, Paul Nelson, Step Back opens with "Unchain My Heart," which features Winter and his band joined by the Blues Brothers horns. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons is featured on "Where Can You Be."


    "I never had the opportunity to jam with him [in the Sixties and Seventies]," Gibbons says. "I was content to remain in awe and admiration."


    "If it weren't for Johnny Winter, I would have never picked up the guitar," adds Aerosmith's Joe Perry, who joins Winter on Lightnin' Hopkins' "Mojo Hand."


    Other highlights include Winter's guitar and vocal trade-offs with Harper on Willie Dixon's "Can't Hold Out (Talk to Me Baby)," Winter and Clapton's rendition of Bobby Bland's "Don't Want No Woman" and Winter and Dr. John honoring Fats Domino with "Blue Monday."


    "When you hear that sound come out of that Firebird guitar, you know it can be the one and only Johnny Winter," says Setzer, who is featured on Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's "Okie Dokie Stomp."

    It's Like This

    This lovely set of intimately arranged and meticulously recorded covers, originally issued in 2000, is precisely the kind of semi-obscure album in need of a quality all-analog reissueThe superbly natural sound produced by this record is what spending big bucks on an audio system is all about. Set the volume appropriately and Ms. Jones'll draw you into the studio for a personal song recitalThis is one to savor. Music = 9/11; Sound = 10/11 Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com


    this effort from 2000 shows Jones conjuring such magic with the material that she deserves as much attention for reworking standards as do Carly Simon or Linda Ronstadt. Kicking off with Steely Dan's 'Show Biz Kids,' and with appearances by Joe Jackson and Ben Folds, among the highpoints is the Beatles' 'For No One' that ranks as among the finest Beatles cover ever. And considering that they number in the tens of thousands, that's about as high as praise gets. Recording = 5/5; Performances = 5/5 Album of the Month Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, April 2008


    The Rickie Lee Jones 45rpm is AWESOME UNREAL AMAZING!!! I have to get a backup copy. I'll play this one to death. Danny Kaey, Positive-Feedback Online


    Not since Billie Holiday has there been a vocalist who so completely transforms a song into her own. On It's Like This, eclectic folkie Rickie Lee Jones envelops standards, showtunes, '70s soul, and even slick jazz-rock, interpreting them with her familiar childlike, breathy shouts. In a very similar vein as 1991's Pop Pop, Jones pulls together a collection of diverse songs from throughout the 20th century and gives them a sparse, fragile spin, kind of like Diana Krall and Bjork sharing coffee at an all-night diner. Produced by Bruce Brody (who has also worked with Maria McKee and Bette Midler), this album is really a showcase for the dynamic vocalist - her voice pitching and yawing like a sloop far out at sea. Several notable artists scatter themselves unobtrusively throughout the album like Joe Jackson, Ben Folds, John Pizzarelli, and Taj Mahal; each lend a subtle bass line or harmony vocal, cautiously not stepping on any of Jones' delicate lines.

    The legendary Santana set the music world on fire back in the late sixties out of San
    Francisco with their hypnotic blend of Latin-fused rock, jazz and soul, augmented with brilliant
    and skillful musicianship of their leader and guitarist Carlos Santana. Bursting on the scene
    initially with the worldwide smash hit single Evil Ways (Santana's Greatest Hits Friday Music
    #33050), this first offering would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come.
    Throughout the remainder of the late seventies and beyond, Carlos Santana would take
    the band to the top of all the popular music charts as the 1976 fusion classic Festival would
    go on to yield a plethora of hit tracks at all formats of radio.

    smash singles like Carnaval, Let The Children Play and of course their stellar single Give Me
    Love, all featuring the voice and hipness of Leon Patillo.


    As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Santana's Festival
    included some significant album tracks too like the rocking masterpiece Let The Music Set You
    Free and the powerful Reach Up, which features the legendary funk and soul groovemeister
    Leon Patillo on lead vocals and keyboards, the stunning lead guitar work of Carlos Santana,
    plus long time associates Tom Coster on keyboards, Jose Areas on percussion and Paul
    Jackson on bass. All in all, this is a collection of songs which took the fans by storm, forever
    retaining the title superstars to the Santana franchise.


    Friday Music is pleased to announce for the very first time on audiophile vinyl Festival by
    Santana. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, this amazing classic

    Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker


    First Time Available On Wide Release Vinyl


    Pristinely Restored 1980 Live Recording


    6 Of The Greatest Jazz Legends In Their Prime


    180 Gram Audiophile 2LP Vinyl With Gatefold


    On a cold November evening in 1980, 3000 jazz fans filled the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier Hall of Place des Arts
    in Montreal, Quebec to attend what promised to be, a swinging evening featuring six of the biggest names
    in bebop. Billed The Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker, and under the direction of
    Dizzy Gillespie - one of the best jazz trumpeters of all time - the event featured legendary performers:
    Hank Jones - piano, Ray Brown - bass, Milt Jackson - vibes, Philly Joe Jones - drums and James Moody
    on tenor sax and flute. Local club owner Roue Doudou Boicel, who produced the concert, had the foresight
    to record the concert in its entirety. A limited quantity bootleg LP of the concert soon appeared and then
    disappeared from the marketplace, those tapes lay dormant for over 30 years.


    This historic recording opens with rapturous applause that sets the tone with Dizzy's own "Blues 'N' Boogie.
    "Also featured are several classic standards - some more well known then others - including "Darben The
    Redd Foxx," "Time On My Hands," "Get Happy," "The Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Stardust." All the players are
    at the top of their game and having a blast, as evidenced by the banter and repartee between songs.


    Concert of the Century, pristinely restored and remastered, features two tracks that weren't on the original
    pressing from the early '80s - Ralph Rainger's "If I Should Lose You" and an incredible eight minute bass
    solo by Ray Brown.

    Easy Star's Thrillah

    Following up on the hugely successful reggae tribute albums of Dub Side of the Moon (2003), Radiodread (2006) and Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009) comes the reggae adaptation of the greatest selling record of all time - Michael Jackson's Thriller. The album, titled Easy Star's Thrillah will be released August 28, 2012 (a day before the 53rd anniversary of Jackson's birth). Easy Star's Thrillah brings back several of the reggae stars from previous albums, such as vocalists Michael Rose (Black Uhuru), Steel Pulse, Luciano, Mojo Morgan (Morgan Heritage), alongside the diverse playing of guests Yossi Fine (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Stanley Jordan), Joe Tomino (Dub Trio/Matisyahu), Andy Farag (Umphrey's McGee), and horn tracks courtesy of Israel's highly-acclaimed funk/hip-hop band Hadag Nachash. The album will be preceded by the July 10th digital release of the Billie Jean EP, which includes two album tracks, along with non-album remixes and a dub version.


    In selecting Thriller, Easy Star Records co-founder Lem Oppenheimer says, We've always tackled the greats - The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead - but while we wanted to take on another huge album, we also wanted to blaze new trails. In Thriller we found those new trails in a number of firsts for the series: the first album by an American artist, the first non-concept album, the first R&B/soul record, as well as the first release from the 80s.


    For me, I was most excited for Thriller, says producer/arranger/guitarist Michael Goldwasser. I was always more of an R&B/soul and reggae kid growing up and I have an intense personal connection to Michael Jackson's music. As usual, the process initially involved Goldwasser spending a few months on arranging the songs. Writing the arrangements for this album was a cool challenge. I didn't have to try to make non-dance music into dance music as on our previous albums because the original Thriller is so danceable already, but I needed to find ways to make each song groove in a different way from the original version. I didn't want any of the arrangements to be obvious in that regard. In the end, Goldwasser's arrangements are some of the most interesting in his career.


    Now that the hard work in the studio is done, the band is looking forward to bringing this music on the road, adding some dance/pop songs to their already varied sets. The band's live show, which was nominated for a UK Festy Award in 2009, already features tracks from the band's previous three tribute albums, along with original material. An extensive fall tour of the US and UK is already set up (US dates listed below), with more to come over the next year. As the original Thriller album comes up on its 30-year anniversary in November, what better way to celebrate this timeless album than to catch the Easy Star All-Stars perform their reggae-infused versions of this pop masterpiece.

    Pinetop Perkins

    Perkins began his blues existence primarily as a guitarist, but a mid-40's encounter with an outraged knife-toting chorus girl at a nightspot left him with severed tendons in his left arm. That dashed his guitar aspirations, but Joe Willie Perkins came back strong from the injury, concentrating solely on piano. He traveled to Helena with Robert Nighthawk in 1943, playing with the elegant slide guitarist on his radio program. Perkins soon switched over to rival Sonny Boy Williamson's beloved King Biscuit Time radio show and remained for an extended period.


    Perkins accompanied Nighthawk on a 1950 session for the Chess brothers that produced Jackson Town Gal, but Chicago couldn't hold him at the time. He hit the road, pausing at Sam Phillips's studios in Memphis long enough for Perkins to wax his first version of Pinetop's Boogie Woogie in 1953, then headed back to the windy city in 1969 when Otis Spann split from Muddy Waters. That is when the stage was set for Pinetop Perkins's reemergence. It was only then that his rolling mastery of the ivories began to assume outsized proportions.


    After joining Muddy Waters, Pinetop made up for precious lost time in the studio. Discs for Antone's, Omega (Portrait of a Delta Bluesman, a solo outing that includes fascinating interview segments), Deluge, Earwig, and several other firms ensure that his boogie legacy won't be forgotten in decades to come.


    Pinetop at a young 87 years old admits he wasn't the originator of the seminal piano piece Pinetop's Boogie Woogie, but it's a safe bet that more people associate it nowadays with Pinetop than with the man who devised it in the first place, Clarence Pinetop Smith. Pinetop plays 6 songs on a Steinway Concert Grand 9' model D with Jimmy D. Lane on guitar.

    Persistence Of Time

    In 1990, while making Persistence of Time, the members of Anthrax looked up from their comic books, quit joking around, and realized they were going to die someday. But unlike its Big Four brethren (Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth), the Fourth Horseband of the Thrashpocalypse didn't celebrate the coming of the grim reaper. The aptly named Persistence of Time opens with the ticking of a clock and unleashes heart-pounding waves of existential dread, stylistic evolution, and white-hot anger at death itself.


    Cut at Mobile Fidelity by engineer Krieg Wunderlich and afforded requisite groove space for the first time ever on a proper 2LP pressing that accommodates the band's longer songs, Anthrax's 1990 magnum opus sounds as genuine, forceful, and uncompromising as the songs' urgent lyrics and thematic struggles. Serious and complex, this definitive analog pressing of Persistence of Time-known by fans as POT-presents the vital music as a furious blend of dynamic speed and three-dimensional heaviness.


    Seething anthems like Keep it in the Family and In My World give way to straight-ahead headbangers like H8 Red and a rapid-paced cover of Joe Jackson's Got the Time. Guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Spitz converse with mosquito whines and monster-truck thunder. Intro to Reality forms a prog-inspired cocoon with harmonizing twin guitars and contemplative resonance until Frank Bello's thundering bass hacks its way out and leads straight into the bare-knuckle Belly of the Beast." Throughout, Charlie Benante's virtuosic drumming accelerates and slows the crashing pulse of Anthrax's last album until 2011 to feature Joey Belladonna's riotous vocals.


    The band's darkest affair, Persistence of Time shakes its fist at mortality, snarls at wasted life, and pits burgeoning maturity against livid, riff-driven metal. Tackling more grown-up motifs, extended arrangements, and slower time signatures than on albums past, the group manages to preserve its youthful energy while expanding beyond the borders of thrash.


    Persistence of Time is timeless.

    The Best Of Booker T. And The M.G.'s

    The Original Atlantic Soul Masters 180g Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues..


    As a young teenager growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, Booker T. Jones had the amazing talent to play a number of instruments and he played them well. Mastering them well enough to land him work at the famous Stax Records label as a sideman, while still attending high school. It was during this time he met up with future guitar legend Steve Cropper and drummer great Al Jackson and later formed the Stax wrecking crew known as Booker T. & The M.G.s.


    This amazing quartet, whom later added the amazing Donald Duck Dunn on bass went on to record a treasure trove of funk, soul and rock masterpieces, which have gone on to become some of the greatest sides ever waxed in modern soul history! With chart topping soul rockers like Green Onions, Red Beans And Rice and Hip Hug-Her, the good folks at Atlantic honored this famed quartet with their own greatest hits album, the magnificent The Best Of Booker T. & The M.G.s in 1968.
