    Absolute Torch And Twang

    Includes Bonus 7 Record


    The ultimate pleasure in witnessing musical icon k.d. lang perform on stage - besides basking in the beauty of her astonishing, incomparable voice - is the deep connection she shares with her audience. Their mutual admiration and affection is undeniable, and it has arguably been the fuel propelling lang from one remarkable recording to the next.


    You have to respect your audience, lang asserts. Without them, you're essentially standing alone, singing to yourself. That's not particularly appealing to an artist who craves the communal experience of sharing new ideas and sounds. The ideal scenario is to have an audience; to build and nurture a bond with them.

    The Ash & Clay

    The Ash & Clay culminates a whirlwind first year of the Milk Carton Kids' existence. In that short time the duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan have built a vibrant following with the simple purity of their music: touring with the Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Punch Brothers, and KD Lang; appearing on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series; charming audiences with their deadpan on-stage humor (riffing on the Smothers Brothers for young fans who have never heard of the Smothers Brothers); offering their debut album for free to willing fans - over 110,000 downloaded - from their website; and grabbing press acclaim usually reserved for veteran artists. A sweetly dazzling variation on closeharmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel and part Everly Brothers, with occasional acoustic prestidigitation," proclaimed The New York Times. With three new Milk Carton Kids songs - "Snake Eyes," "The Ash & Clay" and "The Jewel of June" - featured in the new Gus Van Sant film Promised Land starring Matt Damon, 2013 looks to be a big year for these Kids.

    Warp & Weft

    From one of the country's most inimitable songwriters - Portland, Oregon's Laura Veirs - comes her ninth full-length album. Beautiful, lush and at times deeply dark, Warp and Weft captures the intensity of motherhood, love and violence. Primarily electric-guitar driven, it is a fever dream of an album and could well be Veirs' best work to date. It builds on the uniform praise and commercial success of 2010's July Flame, which Utne Reader dubbed "idiosyncratic and captivating" and received glowing reviews from The New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR and others.


    The recording of Warp and Weft (a weaving term) was a community effort. Produced in Portland in March 2013 by Veirs' longtime collaborator Tucker Martine, the album features Jim James, kd lang, Neko Case, Brian Blade and members of The Decemberists and many more.


    Veirs sings not only of mid-winter suns, white blossoming cherry trees and melting ice, but also suicide, gun violence and war. She weaves threads of old folk songs including "Motherless Children" as well as stories of folk-art hero Howard Finster and jazz harpist Alice Coltrane. "I think of this record as a tapestry where disparate elements come together and are stronger and more lovely as a result," says Veirs. Veirs was eight months pregnant with her second child during the recording; she says her experience as a mother brought about some of the more beautiful and painful songs. "I'm haunted by the idea that something terrible could happen to my kids but that fear pushes me to embrace the moment. This record is an exploration of extremes - deep, dark suffering and intense, compassionate love."


    Laura makes such complicated melodies sound easy," says Neko Case. "The first listen is so comforting and warm, then after two or three listens, the time when you wanna start singing along, you are struck by the thoughtful work that went into making the sounds; the twists and turns she makes like a light gazelle. It's masterful; as a listener, it makes me feel loved. As a musician it makes me feel challenged and engaged. It's a complete protein!

    Hymns Of The 49th Parallel

    Over the last twenty years, k.d. lang has lent her superb voice to an astonishing range of material, from Nashville standards to Tin Pan Alley torch songs, from cow punk tunes to sultry, adult pop- most recently her Grammy-winning gold album with Tony Bennett, Wonderful world.


    With Hymns of the 49th Parallel, the Alberta native brings it all back home, metaphorically speaking, exploring the work of her favorite Canadian-born songwriters: Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bruce Cockburn, Ron Sexsmith and Jane Siberry. On this lovingly assembled disc she juxtaposes classics from iconic artists who were her inspirations with equally brillant material from contemporary performers who reamin her fellow travelers.

    Love Makes The World

    Includes 4 Page Booklet With Pictures, Lyrics And Liner Notes


    Exclusively Remastered


    First Time On Vinyl


    Featuring Guest Appearances By Babyface, Steven Tyler, Celine Dion. Wynton Marsalis And K.D. Lang


    Carole King is the most successful female songwriter of the 20th century, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1955 and 1999. She also wrote 61 hits that charted in the UK, making her the most successful female songwriter on the UK singles charts between 1952 and 2005.


    Carole King has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. She is the recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be honored this way.


    Love Makes The World by Carole King was officially released in 2001 and is now finally available on vinyl for the first time. The album features a variety of well-known musicians like Babyface, Steven Tyler, Celine Dion, Wynton Marsalis and K.D. Lang.


    King's distinctive piano and heartfelt vocals belt out tunes with spare accompaniment. The string quartet on Uncommon Love seems organically relaxed and K.D. Lang remains appropriately low-key throughout the duet.


    The yearning of You Will Find Me There recalls the simple poetic honesty of You've Got a Friend both lyrically and musically.


    Love Makes the World is the classiest and most consistent collection of songs since the late '70s.

    Duets II

    In a 1965 interview with LIFE, Frank Sinatra said: For my money, Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business.
    He excites me when I watch him. He moves me. He's the singer who gets across what the composer has in mind, and probably a little more.


    And for the past sixty-odd years, Tony has been doing exactly that. With 15 Grammy Awards and a multitude of Gold and Platinum status recordings under his arm, this man sure knows how to work those pipes.


    Duets II is another collection of American Songbook standards performed in the best of ways.


    Duets II includes collaborations with the best voices of music: Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Norah Jones and k.d. lang grace the recording booth with this legendary singer.
    But it is the tragic and premature passing of Amy Winehouse that makes this album truly special; her appearance on the duet 'Body And Soul' is the last known recording of the British songbird, and it is a truly heartrending version of the 1930 jazz classic.

    Summer Skin

    Summer Skin, the new album from Amy Cook is set for release on Roothouse Records/Thirty Tigers. The 12-songs on Summer Skin feature an all-star band, special cameos and Cook's strongest songwriting and recording to date. Cook successfully achieves the perfect balance between intelligent, thoughtful singer/songwriter and strong rock chick. Rolling Stone desribes Cook as "a brassier, dusty Deborah Harry."



    Summer Skin represents a new plateau for Cook as an artist. "This is the happiest I've ever been with anything I've ever recorded," says Cook, "I was working with people who really were able to get into my mind and help me let go of my expectations, instead of worrying 'is this gonna rock hard enough or be rootsy enough or be smart enough.'"



    Those people begin with producer Craig Street, whose long list of credits includes Norah Jones, Cassandra Wilson, Joe Henry and K.D. Lang. Then comes an all-star band, featuring David Garza (guitar), Me'Shell N'Degeocello (bass), Chris Bruce (guitar) and Jonathan Wilson (drums).



    Cook had a few other friends make some special contributions to Summer Skin. Robert Plant sings harmony with Cook on the beautiful "It's Gonna Rain," and joins Patty Griffin on the moody "Airplane Driver." Ben Kweller co-wrote and sings back up on the catchy rocker "Getting To You."

    Limited Audiophile Pressing by RTI


    Deluxe Gatefold Package


    Salvation Town, the surprising and powerful solo debut by Jonny Two Bags,
    guitarist for the Southern California punk rock institution Social Distortion,
    defies expectations at every turn. Produced by David Kalish, noted for his long
    association with Rickie Lee Jones, at his Redstar Studio in Los Angeles, the
    album features 10 striking original songs written by Jonny Two Bags, a.k.a.
    Jonny Wickersham.


    A diverse array of talent that spans the musical spectrum
    was enlisted for the recording. Jackson Browne shares vocals with Wickersham
    on "Then You Stand Alone," while David Lindley, whose guitar work graced
    several of Browne's classic '70s albums, contributes to four tracks. Los Lobos'
    multi-instrumentalist David Hidalgo and his sons David Jr. and Vincent join in
    on "Wayward Cain" and super-sideman Greg Leisz (Lucinda Williams, Eric
    Clapton, k.d. lang, Dave Alvin) also appears on guitar. The drum chair is filled
    by Pete Thomas, a mainstay of Elvis Costello's bands. Wickersham's colleagues in Social Distortion, keyboardist Danny McGough
    and bassist Brent Harding, join on a few tracks while Austin accordion luminary Joel Guzman and bassist/punk kingpin Zander
    Schloss (Weirdos, Circle Jerks, Thelonious Monster) round out the lineup.

    More Rain

    M. Ward has released a string of acclaimed solo albums over the past
    several years, along with five LPs with Zooey Deschanel as She & Him
    and a 2009 collaborative album with My Morning Jacket's Jim James
    and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis under the moniker
    Monsters of Folk. In addition to his celebrated work as a musician,
    Ward is an accomplished producer, handling those duties for such
    luminaries as Mavis Staples, Jenny Lewis, and Carlos Forster as well as
    his own musical projects.


    More Rain, Ward's eighth solo affair, finds the artist picking up the
    tempo and volume a bit from his previous release, 2012's A Wasteland
    Companion. Where that record introspectively looked in from the
    outside, More Rain finds Ward on the inside, gazing out. Begun four
    years ago and imagined initially as a DIY doo-wop album that would
    feature Ward experimenting with layering his own voice, it soon
    branched out in different directions, a move that he credits largely to
    his collaborators here who include R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Neko Case,
    k.d. lang, The Secret Sisters, and Joey Spampinato of NRBQ. The
    result is a collection of upbeat, sonically ambitious yet canonically
    familiar songs that both propel Ward's reach and satisfy longtime fans.

    Case/Lang/Veirs

    case/lang/veirs, a true collaboration between three phenomenal, self-driven artists: avant-rock icon Neko Case, legendary musical nomad k.d. lang, and indie folk star Laura Veirs. The women wrote all 14 songs and shared lead vocals equally, sometimes even within the same track. Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, case/lang/veirs travels through aches and eras, torch songs and tributes to the undersung.


    They worked over two and a half years in Portland, Oregon, where lang and Veirs both live, sometimes in lang's loft with a view of Mount St. Helens, others in Veirs' dining room or backyard studio. The album was written from the ground up without any real plan beyond a desire to make music together and a faith that it would reveal itself. They produced the album with Tucker Martine, at his Portland studio in November 2015.


    "The combination of spirits, the combination of artistry, is very unique, because we have definite similarities, but we are very, very different, and it creates a really interesting thing," says lang. "It's a truly collaborative record where our individual essences are firmly in place."

    Whistle Stop

    Blue Note Reissue


    As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their hands. Back home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent me. I hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008


    ...these first five Acoustic Sounds Blue Note re-issues are pure bop genius...The best news is that Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman were keen enough to do nothing more than gently clean up the masters, bringing us even closer to the hard bop edge. The 45 rpm pressings that I received were all super quiet with every last drop of resolution from the master tapes. I had almost forgotten just how good Paul Chambers and Phil Joe were together as the backbone of these groups. I've always loved this music but I didn't remember it sounding this good! Hank Mobley offers us some brilliant sax bits on one of Kenny Dorham's finest recordings, Whistle Stop and Dexter Gordon's performance blew me away as well. The biggest surprise were the Lee Morgan records. I suggest turning these up loud, since they possess unlimited energy and some hooks that will knock you out. Amazing! Just a small warning: Once you start playing these Blue Note recordings you will be hooked. The good news is that Acoustic Sounds is working on at least 20 more of these jazz gems. So make sure your turntable has a setting for 45 rpm, clean your stylus occassionally, and get ready to be transported to nirvana. - Dan Babineau, Tone Audio, No. 14 2008, www.tonepublications.com


    Rightfully considered one of Kenny Dorham's best, this album features great originals and great trumpet playing. The superb cast consists of Hank Mobley, Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. The title tune and Philly Twist are often heard, but the entire album represents a great composing achievement for KD.

    The Bright Mississippi

    Through his work as producer, composer, arranger and consummate session man, New Orleans native Allen Toussaint has truly earned living-legend status. He has collaborated on landmark recordings for such artists as Ernie K. Doe, Lee Dorsey, Dr. John, the Meters, the Pointer Sisters and Labelle and released acclaimed albums of his own. The 70 year-old pianist, already a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, was the recipient, on the recent Grammy Awards telecast, of the Recording Academy's prestigious Trustee Award, honoring a lifetime in the studio, both behind the scenes and in front of the mic.


    On The Bright Mississippi, his Nonesuch debut, Toussaint continues to break new ground with his first jazz-oriented set, displaying the same effortless swing and relaxed charm he brought to his classic rock and roll sides. He salutes Big Easy stars of a previous generation, the jazz greats who, in the early 20th century, built the genre from the ground up and turned the ears of the world to New Orleans. Backed by an all-star combo that sounds like a group of old friends, Toussaint reinterprets classic jazz and blues tunes popularized or written by such New Orleans greats as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton and Joe King Oliver, as well as pieces composed by fellow travelers Django Reinhardt, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk. He accedes the producers chair to trusted friend Joe Henry, who sat behind the board for Toussaint's contributions to Our New Orleans, Nonesuch Records best-selling 2005 benefit release aiding hurricane victims on the Gulf Coast. Henry also produced The River In Reverse, Toussaint's 2006 post-Katrina collaboration with Elvis Costello.


    Henry assembled a decidedly non-traditional band of backing players for The Bright Mississippi, assuring a fresh take on such venerable tunes as West End Blues, St. James Infirmary, and Dear Old Southland. Joining Toussaint for four days of sessions at Manhattans Avatar Studio were guitarist Marc Ribot (Costello, Tom Waits), bassist David Piltch (k.d. lang), clarinetist Don Byron, trumpeter Nicholas Payton and drummer Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant /Alison Krauss, Sam Phillips). Nonesuch label-mates Brad Mehldau (piano) and Joshua Redman (saxophone) stopped by for one tune each.It was wonderful, says Toussaint of these convivial sessions.


    Everything is live, of course. This isn't the kind of assembly line music where somebody put the wheels on here and somebody put the top on there. Everything got done at the same time, so everybody fed on each other, their personality and tonality.

    Good Dog, Happy Man (Out Of Stock)

    Following upon the success of last years Gone, Just Like A Train, Bill Frisell reunites with his much-admired partners from this last outing plus a handful of others for another session of inspired music-making. Joined by renowned drummer Jim Keltner and Lyle Lovett bassist Viktor Krauss, the core band is further expanded to a quintet with the addition of Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang) on dobro, mandolin and steel guitars, Wayne Horvitz on organ and Billy Cox on guitar, with a special guest appearance by Ry Cooder.


    With the gut-first feeling of rock, the subtleties of jazz, and the earnestness of country, Bill Frisell continues to create a genre unto himself. As with his last two albums, he continues in a musical vein that has brought him a new level of sales success and radio play, all the while maintaining the respect he has commanded as an innovator for nearly 20 years.


    What Frisell has begun to fashion on his latest releases is a sensibility as unmistakably American as that of Charles Ives or Duke Ellington, with the harmonic and tonal complexity of both and a seductive melancholy all his own. L.A. Weekly

    Free State Serenade (Out of Stock)

    " Mead Is The Quentin Tarantino Of Rockabilly..." - Great Falls Tribune


    A wild ride of hillbilly blues and honky-tonk, Chuck Mead (best known for his work as front man for BR549) wrote his new album based on the stories and legends, crimes and the lonesome open road of his childhood and formative years in Kansas. He recorded it with his longtime band, the Grassy Knoll Boys.


    'Free State Serenade' jumps from jaunty mountain airs like "Neosho Valley Sue," where BR5-49's Don Herron lends his fiddle to what Mead calls a "coming of age ditty" to "Sittin' On Top Of The Bottom" a whip-smart ode to "Sittin' On Top Of The World." "The Devil By Their Side" is a dark, chugging rock n' roll number about William Quantrill's murderous 1863 Civil War raid of Lawrence, Kansas.


    Mead co-founded three-time GRAMMY nominated alternative country band, BR5-49, who have released seven full-length LPs and won a Country Music Association Award since the early 1990's. He also acts as Music Director for the hit Broadway show, Million Dollar Quartet, currently touring throughout North America to rave reviews. Mead has released two solo albums, "Journeyman's Wager," and "Back At The Quonset Hut," with his band, The Grassy Knoll Boys. 'Free State Serenade' was co-produced with Joe Pisapia (kd Lang, Ben Folds Five) and features BR5-49's Don Herron and Old Crow Medicine Show's Critter Fuqua.
