    Leftoverture

    Leftoverture is the fourth album by American rock band Kansas, released in 1976. With Steve Walsh taking a back seat on the production of material, Kerry Livgren stepped up and his compositions retained much of the classically inspired complexity of Livgren's previous work. The album begins with the hit single Carry On Wayward Son. Kerry Livgren wrote the song as a sequel to the final song, The Pinnacle, from the previous album, Masque.


    Rolling Stone called Leftoverture Kansas's best album to date, and said that it 'warrants Kansas a spot right alongside Boston and Styx as one of the fresh new American bands who combine hard-driving group instrumentation (with a dearth of flashy solos) with short, tight melody lines and pleasant singing.'

    Two For The Show

    Clear Vinyl


    Freaks of Nature - the album that saved Kansas. After a seven-year dry spell of no new material, they hit with this thunderbolt in 1995! The bands 12th studio album. Amazing and refreshing, Freaks of Nature tantalizes all the senses, mainly due to the intensity of the music and the seriousness of the lyrics. All of its songs are strong, effective and fascinating. The darkness of this album is balanced by the pure emotion of the music. The frankness and honesty of the lyrics are a testament to the growth and healing that Steve Walsh was going through at the time. Ragsdale's intensity pulls the whole thing together.

    The album was recorded live over several German and Japanese dates in late 1976 during the Rising world tour. Many of the tracks were spliced together from different dates by producer Martin Birch, and the running order was changed to more easily fit four sides of vinyl. The recording features the customary introduction to a Rainbow show - the classic quote from the The Wizard of Oz, Toto: I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow! with the last word repeated as an echo, then the actual band plays a musical phrase from the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow before breaking into Kill the King.

    There And Back

    Whenever Jeff Beck releases an album, it's always a musical event. As the third in a trilogy of multifaceted career defining albums, preceded by Blow By Blow and Wired, the iconic guitarist unleashed one of the most popular albums in his ever enduring catalog with 1980's There And Back.


    This masterwork unites the guitar hero with his powerful team of world class musicians, Jan Hammer (keyboards), Simon Phillips (drums), Tony Hymas (keyboards) and Mo Foster (bass). The brilliant guitar shredder and his quartet of amazing master musicians truly throw down some of his classiest and hardest driving repertoire for this Jeff Beck and Ken Scott (David Bowie/Kansas/Supertramp) production.


    The album begins with the rhythmic rocker Star Cycle. The tune finds Beck and Hammer dueling on some very solid power riffs making this a great opening track for the listener. The soulful vibe of Too Much To Lose has the tremendous voicing of Jeff's guitar with Hymas' fine keyboard elements and Phillips' wonderful drum work throughout.


    Always an astute bluesman, The Pump retains a solid groove which allows Beck 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 You Never Know, El Becko and Space Boogie. These and his jazz rock leaning hits like The Golden Road and The Final Peace truly reward his fans with one of the finest albums in his decorated career!


    Friday Music proudly presents the limited edition 180g audiophile release of Jeff Beck's classic There And Back. As a continuation of their highly regarded Jeff Beck Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series, this fine recording is mastered from the original Epic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck, Deep Purple, Yes) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray.


    Also for this rare anniversary edition, Friday will be presenting the original artwork now in a very limited first time gatefold cover featuring all of the art elements you remember from this incredible 1980 career album for Jeff Beck.

    Titan: It's All Pop!

    From 1978-1981 the Titan label issued only eight records, but over the years their tiny catalog has crawled to the top of power-pop want lists worldwide and appeared on scads of bootleg cassettes, building a legacy to rival L.A.s Bomp or New Yorks Ork. Located in fly-over country, Titan was forced to start their own scene, import their own skinny ties, and scour Missouri for their own talent.


    Their midwest AM bubblegum roots are apparent in the likes of Gary Charlson, the Secrets*, Arlis!, Gems, Millionaire At Midnight, the Boys, J.P. McClain & the Intruders, Bobby Sky, and Scott McCarl, but Titan was clearly influenced by the glam-punk spit being hocked from the 100 Club stage.


    30 years since they meekly flopped out their first 7 single, Kansas Citys Titan Records finally returns to record bins everywhere with the 4-LP retrospective, Titan: It's All Pop!

    In 1976 the New York City club 'Max's Kansas City' entered a new musical phase, with the underground movement that became PuNk developing within its walls. Resident DJ Wayne County wrote a song for the club cataloguing the new bands that regularly played there: New York Dolls, Patti Smith, The Ramones, Television, Blondie, Iggy Pop, the Heartbreakers and many more. The single was issued as a taster for the 40th anniversary of 'Max's Kansas City 1976' compilation album, now due for a much-extended reissuedon double-vinyl.


    Alongside Wayne County it features Suicide, Cherry Vanilla, The Fast, Harry Toledo and more; now expanded with 20 more unsung underground heroes including The Offs, The Senders and The Stilettos, plus the Heartbreakers, New York Dolls, Iggy Pop, Nico, Gang War and Sid Vicious, including various previously unreleased recordings and rarities. Over the years the Max's Kansas City club has become ever more legendary.

    Cool jazz meets swing on this memorable but long out-of-print LP. Valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, tenors Al Cohn and Paul Quinichette, pianist Nat Pierce, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Addison Farmer and drummer Osie Johnson perform four songs associated with the late-'30s Count Basie Orchestra plus a couple of numbers (A Blues and Travlin' Light) that are sung by the underrated vocalist Big Miller who was making his recording debut at the time.




    Musicians:



    • Bob Brookmeyer (trombone)

    • Al Cohn, Paul Quinichette (tenor saxophone)

    • Nat Pierce (piano)

    • Jim Hall (guitar)

    • Addison Farmer (bass)

    • Osie Johnson (drums)

    • Big Miller (vocal)



    Recording: October 1958 at Olmsted Studios, New York City, by Dick Olmsted

    Production: Jack Lewis




    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.

    Live At Max's Kansas City

    There's a certain amount of disagreement among Velvet Underground scholars regarding whether or not
    this album, recorded by Andy Warhol associate and longtime fan Brigid Polk on a portable cassette recorder on
    August 23, 1970, does in fact document Lou Reed's final appearance with the VU. Historical merit seems to be more
    the issue than high fidelity.

    Kansas City Suite: The Music Of Benny Carter (Pure Pleasure)

    A session from 1960 with Basie and his Orchestra on absolute top form. It's hardly surprising when you see the line up of star players and also the fact that every single selection was written by Benny Carter.



    The Kansas City that Count Basie found himself in had become the hard core of vital new jazz. It was a place where the musicians who expressed this new jazz could, from night through morning, and on again the next night, sit in on numerous jam sessions.It was a place where musicians like Walter Page, Benny Moten, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Andy Kirk, Coleman Hawkins and many more, could be found working, experimenting and living their music. This was Count Basie's Kansas City, and this is the Kansas City that Benny Carter has dedicated this music to. He has written an original modern jazz suite that is flavored with the elements of Kansas City stomp jazz, and tailored for the big brash sound of the Basie band of today. To Benny Carter, the different streets and places in Kansas City, where so many of these jazz greats lived and worked, and where so much of jazz history was written, evokes a mood, a rememberance of things past. He has, for this reason, titled the selections of this suite after these very same streets and places. The Kansas City of the '20s and 30s is now a legend, and the music that saw it's beginnings there has since developed and moved into the mainstream of today's jazz. It has reached its full maturity and greatness in the music of Benny Carter, and through the dynamic force of the great Basie band!




    Musicians:



    • Sonny Cohn (trumpet)

    • Thad Jones (trumpet)

    • Henry Coker (trombone)

    • Benny Powell (trombone)

    • Marshall Royal (alto saxophone,clarinet)

    • Billy Mitcheel (tenor saxophone, clarinet)

    • Charles Fowlkes (bassoon, bass clarinet, flute)

    • Count Basie (piano)

    • Freddie Green (guitar)

    Elgar & Vaughan Williams/Enigma Variations, Wasps & Greensleeves

    Grammy®-winning engineer Keith O. Johnson has captured this colorful, beloved English music in brilliant HD sound. The Kansas City Symphony garnered tremendous critical acclaim for their first project on Reference Recordings, incidental music for The Tempest by Sullivan and Sibelius. Their second release on RR, Britten s Orchestra, received a Grammy® for Best Surround Sound for both the engineer and producer, as well as rave reviews everywhere, although the title is now unfortunately out of print.


    This release again features Michael Stern, the son of famed violinist Isaac Stern. He is also the founder of the Iris Chamber Orchestra in Memphis, TN and, in addition to RR, has recorded for Sony, Hyperion, Denon, Arabesque, and Naxos. Producer David Frost won Grammy® Awards in 2005, 2009, and 2011 for Classical Producer of the Year. He has produced a large roster of stars and Grammy®-winning titles.

    Moondog

    Moondogs debut release, originally on the Prestige label, came out in 1956, long after hed become a legendary New York City street performer. The blind Kansas native showcases his talent for the minimal and avant-garde here, with compositions driven by percussion and Japanese-inspired melodies, complimented by street sounds, recitations, and animal noises. Bizarre even for todays standards, its a wonder this was released over a half-century ago. A brilliant debut.
