    John B. Sebastian is the debut album by American singer/songwriter John Sebastian, previously best known as the co-founder and primary singer/songwriter of the 1960s folk-rock band the Lovin' Spoonful. The album, released in January 1970 includes several songs that would become staples of Sebastian's live performances during the early and mid-1970s. Most notably, the album included ''She's a Lady,'' Sebastian's first solo single, and an alternate version of ''I Had a Dream'' which was used to open the soundtrack album of the 1970 documentary film Woodstock.


    John B. Sebastian also featured support performances by David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash several months before that trio agreed to work together as a performing unit.


    John B. Sebastian would be the artist's most successful solo album, ultimately peaking at #20 on the U.S. Billboard pop albums chart.

    Featuring Norah Jones

    Norah Jones has a lot of friends. So many that she's been able to put together a compelling collection of her collaborations during the past decade with no less than 18 other artists. Among those invited to her party: Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Ryan Adams, Outkast, and Foo Fighters. How cool is that?


    Encompassing rock, country, pop, jazz, and more, the tracks span back to Jones' earliest recordings (a version of Roxy Music's More Than This with guitarist Charlie Hunter in 2001) and fast forward to her most recent performances, as Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John was recently cut with twee-pop darlings Belle and Sebastian. Featuring Norah Jones also includes recordings by some of Jones' own bands and side projects like The Little Willies and El Madmo, as well as performances with artists that she's toured with, including M. Ward, Sasha Dobson and Gillian Welch, and David Rawlings.


    It's so exciting and flattering and fun when I get asked to sing with somebody that I admire, explains Jones. It takes you a little bit out of your comfort zone when you're doing something with another artist. You don't know what to expect-it's kind of like being a little kid and having a playdate.

    Do You Believe In Magic

    180 Gram R.T.I. Vinyl Pressing


    From the Original Kama Sutra Mono Masters


    Greenwich Village, 1964: While the folk boom is still in progress, other musics began seeping into the corners and clubs of lower Manhattan. Rock, once down for the count, came back with a vengeance, largely thanks to a klatch of young British bands. Roots music, especially blues, grew rapidly in popularity as folk enthusiasts expanded their horizons. In this intoxicating milieu, John Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Joe Butler and Steve Boone united to form the Lovin' Spoonful. Originally a jug band with folk roots, they readily incorporated the sounds they heard all around them. Combining British Invasion jangle with the blues' growl and folk's attention to lyrical detail, they forged a sound completely their own. Accomplished musicians all, they had two secret weapons: the guitar virtuosity of Zal Yanovsky and the rising songwriting talent of John Sebastian.


    The first Spoonful single, "Do You Believe in Magic," took AM radio by storm in June of that year, reaching #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Featuring an irrepressible melody, a chiming autoharp and Yanovsky's tasteful fills, it was an audacious debut. Their inaugural Kama Sutra LP, also titled Do You Believe in Magic, followed in November 1965. Containing three other Sebastian originals and one song credited to the band, the balance of the LP contained traditional blues covers and songs by contemporary writers. Reaching #32 on the Billboard Top 200, it established the band as one of country's brightest new talents.


    By the release of their second album, Daydream, in March 1966, the band's songwriting chops had fully blossomed, particularly Sebastian's, who wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs. The album's first single, "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice" reached #10 on the Hot 100 and married a signature Yanovsky riff with a galloping piano part to form an indelible hook. The title track, a mid-tempo reverie with an ace whistling solo, did even better, soaring to #2. Skipping ahead a few decades, the album cut "Butchie's Tune" was used to great effect in season five of Mad Men.


    The band soon returned with Hums of the Lovin' Spoonful. Consciously working in different styles, the band essayed country ("Nashville Cats"), folk balladry ("Rain on the Roof") and psych- tinged rock ("Summer in the City"), among other sounds. This time, all the songs were originals and it was the last full album recorded by the original quartet. It stands as a triumphant ending to one of the most exciting chapters in the American rock story of the 1960s, a perfect encapsulation of a time when it seemed anything was possible in music. Sourced from the original Kama Sutra mono masters, these masterpieces are pressed at RTI on 180gm vinyl.

    Stephen Stills

    With his 1970 self-titled solo debut, Stephen Stills, like his CSN&Y bandmates, decided to explore other musical avenues. Stills offers up his trademark Southern California folk-pop sound here while incorporating the Latin, swamp and blues influences that were just beginning to emerge in his songwriting. The London session allowed Stills to finally team up with Eric Clapton on the track Go Back Home and Jimi Hendrix, who died prior to the album's release, is notably featured on the track Old Times, Good Times. Other collaborators include John Sebastian, Rita Coolidge, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Cass Elliot. Features two of Stills' biggest hits with Love the One You're With and Sit Yourself Down.

    Tear Down The Walls

    The rumbling baritone of Fred Neil and Vince Martins earthy tenor... Its a vocal blend every bit as impressive as the great duos in music history: the Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel with a Greenwich Village twist, of course. Put Neil and Martin, a pair of New York City folkie legends-in-the-making, into a recording studio with a young, pre-Spoonful John Sebastian on harmonica and Felix Pappalardi (later to produce Cream and the Youngbloods) on guitarron (an acoustic Mexican bass guitar) and magic is inevitable. This, of course, is Fred Neil in 1964, well before he just walked away from the folk scene and split for Florida and premature retirement in 1971, to remain an enigma until his recent death. Every recording by this compelling, monstrously talented singer/songwriter should be cherished like spun gold. From the original Elektra Records stereo master, Tear Down the Walls is one of Neils first studio sessions and is undeniably also one of his best.

    The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful

    As the title suggests this is a real Best Of and not a Greatest Hits album. Although there are five successful singles on the album (Do You Believe in Magic, You Didn't Have To Be So Nice, Daydream, Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind? and Summer In The City), the seven other tracks emphasize the band's assets as a whole and not only John Sebastian's song writing and singing abilities. These seven tracks might not have been big hits, but they are surely the group's strongest material, picked from the first three albums Do You Believe In Magic, Daydream, and Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful. This 180-gram LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with four postcards of the members.

    On The Track

    ON THE TRACK is among the most remarkable debut albums of 1975 or any other year, a reverent and remarkably authentic revival of late 19th century and early 20th century popular music, spanning Roaring Twenties radio ditties, Depression-era ragtime, the folk-jazz of World War II, and still-sung favorites by songwriters like Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael & Johnny Mercer, Fats Waller, Al Dubin & Harry Warren, Lonnie Johnson, and Jimmie Rodgers. The album - which sees Redbone accompanied by such studio luminaries as drummer Steve Gadd, percussionist Ralph MacDonald, and the great double bassist Milt Hinton - was an across-the-board success, reaching #83 on Billboard's overall Top LPs & Tape chart amidst widespread critical acclaim. TMR's exclusive vinyl reissue of ON THE TRACK comes in a 12 single pocket, direct-to-board replica of the original Warner Bros. Records release, with classic cover art featuring a Chuck Jones illustration of Merrie Melodies star Michigan J. Frog.


    Leon Redbone - who only recently retired from active recording and live performance - is a true original, a one of a kind singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose imitable interpretations of turn of the 20th century music have affirmed him as both Invaluable curator and resounding pop pioneer. Redbone began performing in Toronto more than four decades ago, earning the approval of such notables as Bob Dylan, The Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian, and famed producer John Hammond. Immediately iconic in his trademark Panama hat and dark sunglasses, Redbone proved an exceptional star, known far and wide via laconic performances on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and A Prairie Home Companion. His remarkable work in the years since encompass a stunning range of creative output - 13 studio albums, sold out live performances around the globe, multiple TV themes, countless commercials, voiceovers, and a memorable duet with Zooey Deschanel of Baby, It's Cold Outside featured in the 2003 holiday blockbuster, Elf. Throughout, Redbone's greatest contribution has been his undying championship of America's musical heritage, his singular talent introducing generation after generation to a still potent folk tradition.

    Richland Woman Blues (Pure Pleasure)

    Best known for that ditty about camels, Maria Muldaur has since established herself as one of the finest folk/country/jazz/blues/gospel interpreters ever to have a Top Five single. After 26 years and 24 solo albums, Muldaur -- inspired by a trip to Memphis' Beale Street -- digs deep into her roots and pays tribute to the classic blues women of the '20s and '30s. Aided by the similarly inclined Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, and Alvin 'Youngblood' Hart, Muldaur breezes through 14 tunes from icons Bessie Smith and Memphis Minnie, as well as obscurities from the Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, and Blind Willie Johnson. Keeping the unplugged accompaniment stripped way down to a single guitar or piano and occasional bass, Muldaur has room to maneuver her evocative vocals that shift from gritty groans to a high-pitched edgy trill. Far from a dry history lesson, these songs are performed with the strength and tenacity of the women who originally sang them. Whether spinning saucy, double entendre lyrics in Me And My Chauffeur Blues (»the way you ride so easy, I can't turn you down«) or longing for her Southern home after moving north during the Depression in Bessie Smith's Far Away Blues, the singer remains invigorated and inspired throughout. By returning to her late-'60s Jim Kweskin Jug Band coffeehouse days, Maria Muldaur has discovered her middle-aged oasis with Richland Woman Blues. And there's not a camel in sight.

    • Maria Muldaur (vocal)

    • Alvin Youngblood Hart (guitar, vocal)

    • Bonnie Raitt, John Sebastian (guitar)

    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.

    (I Can't Get No) Stevie Jackson

    Despite having been responsible for some of Belle and Sebastian's best known songs (Jonathan David, Chickfactor, Seymour Stein and I'm Not Living In the Real World), it has taken Stevie Jackson sixteen years for his first collection of solo recordings.


    Recorded over the last three years in Glasgow and Vancouver, (I Can't Get No) features a range of friends and musical collaborators including members of Belle and Sebastian, The Pastels, Trembling Bells and the songwriting triumvirate, The Company (Jackson, Roy Moller and Gary Thom), and the New Pornographers' rhythm section of Kurt Dahle and John Collins.


    Deluxe edition LP is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and is housed in a gatefold sleeve with download code. Released on Belle & Sebastian's Banchory record label.

    The legendary pop/rock superstars The Lovin' Spoonful (John B. Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Steve Boone and Joe Butler) set the music world on fire back in the '60s. With a ton of television appearances, massive concert tours and of course an amazing string of hit singles and albums, The Lovin' Spoonful to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.



    In 1967, Kama Sutra Records honored these hugely popular rockers with their first hits album simply titled The Best Of the Lovin' Spoonful. Filled with a treasure trove of number one and top charting singles and hit album tracks from their first three smash albums, this incredible LP also hit the upper rungs of the album charts the Summer of Love 1967.



    No stone is left unturned, as this 12-track masterpiece is loaded with hit singles like Do You Believe In Magic?, You Didn't Have To Be So Nice, Daydream, Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?, Younger Girl, plus their number one smash from 1966 Summer In The City. As one of the more collectible albums in their Kama Sutra Records catalog, The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful has been out of print for many years, making it an instant collector's item, which hasn't seen the light of day for over four decades, that is until now!

    180-Gram Electric Blue Vinyl


    "'Adult Diversion' is a whimsical dream jam and brings "feel-good" to
    a staggering high." - Consequence of Sound


    "...a complete collision of everything we already love: singalong
    lyrics, a guitar-driven backbone, and a sun-drenched vibe..."
    -Nylon


    "Alvvays make wistful, jangly, Brit-tinged indiepop."
    -Brooklyn Vegan


    "...somewhere between the sun-drenched shores of California and
    the preppy Scottish countryside."
    -Pitchfork


    Alvvays are two women, three men, a crate of C-86 tapes and a
    love of jingle-jangle. Molly Rankin and Kerri MacLellan grew up
    as next-door neighbours in Cape Breton, lifting fiddles and folk-songs. Heartbreaks of different shades soon entered their lives, as
    did the music of Teenage Fanclub and Belle & Sebastian. Similar
    noisy melancholy drifted over to Prince Edward Island, finding
    Alec O'Hanley, Brian Murphy and Philip MacIsaac.


    Convening in Toronto, the group have been making music since
    since dusk or maybe dawn, when stars were appearing or fading
    off. As a result, their debut self-titled album is both sun-splashed
    and twilit -- nine songs concealing drunkenness, defeat and death
    in tungsten-tinted pop that glitters like sea glass.


    With needlepoint melody and verse, Rankin and O'Hanley's songs
    were recorded at Chad VanGaalen's Yoko Eno studio and mixed
    by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and John Agnello (Sonic Youth,
    Dinosaur Jr., kurt Vile). The resultant album is loud and clear and
    sure. Flood your ears.

    Winged Life (Out of Stock)

    Talk Talk covering early Elton John or Bert Jansch anticipating the Smiths; that's as close as we can get to describing Shearwater's Winged Life. The truth is, with its elaborate and unconventional arrangements, richly layered production and conscious efforts to not recreate the past, this is a difficult record to pigeonhole. One or two songs on Winged Life partake of the somber, restrained delicacy of Shearwater's last two records, but everywhere else the band has loosened up, allowed that delicacy to bloom or crumble, and is trying new things -- from the dark and urgent groove of Whipping Boy to the buoyant pop of A Makeover, from the The World in 1984's wry soft rock to the almost prog-y tension of Sealed. As a result, Winged Life bridges many musical gaps. Its songs are melodic and narrative-based enough to appeal to fans of Belle & Sebastian, yet unique enough to be mentioned in the same breath as artists like the Notwist or Broken Social Scene. (Shearwater's Will Sheff and Jonathan Meiburg are also members of Okkervil River.)
