    King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol. II

    Ranked 424/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    King of the Delta Blues Singers, Vol. II is a compilation album by American blues musician Robert Johnson, released in 1970 on Columbia Records. It is considered one of the greatest blues releases ever.


    A wonderful follow-up to the first compilation (King of the Delta Blues Singers) of Robert Johnson's small library of recorded work. This album boasts the first album appearance of Love in Vain, as well as a number of other blues classics penned by the artist. Sweet Home Chicago, I Believe I'll Dust My Broom, They're Red Hot, and Malted Milk are all present (and all covered by a multitude of artists -- the Blues Brothers, Elmore James, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Eric Clapton, respectively). As is generally the practice with Robert Johnson albums, a painting stands in for the cover (there are only two known photographs of the artist in the first place, and every other album released uses one of them). The music is certainly impeccable -- the self-accompanying bassline boogie was one of Johnson's greatest contributions to the blues, and it's displayed in all its beauty here. To top this, there's the beauty of his melodic work, and the interplay with his semi-gruff voice that help to make his songs memorable. He is the true legend of the blues, and anyone with even the slightest curiosity in that genre or rock needs to own both this album and its predecessor.

    King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol. 1

    Insert


    Remastered Audio


    If one would ever have to start assembling a serious Blues collection, Robert Johnson's King Of The Delta Blues Singers vol. 1 would be the best purchase. The mythical figure that inspired the worldwide Blues revival in the Sixties will forever be credited with inspiring guitar greats like Clapton and Hendrix to pick up a guitar.


    Johnson lived a short but impactful musical tenure in the Thirties. After apparently 'selling his soul at the crossroads', Johnson quickly became the best Country Blues singer in his time, however a tormented one. The devil eventually took his soul at a too young age of 27. The remastered audio of this original 1961 collection of material is simply stunning - Robert Johnson never sounded so alive.

    King King

    Import


    This debut album, originally released in 1992, is named after Blues-Rock band The Red Devils' favourite Hollywood spot, which also happens to be the place where they cut this live album.


    During the recordings with legendary producer Rick Rubin, they were introduced to Mick Jagger and Johnny Cash, who would later record songs with them and occasionally join them on stage at the Los Angeles club.


    The stars were aligned for a bright future for The Red Devils, but unfortunately internal frictions and substance abuse problems put an end to their career in 1994.


    Their only full length album, 'King King' is seen as a true Blues classic and Music On Vinyl is honoured to release this album on vinyl for the very first time.

    The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Continues!


    Muddy Waters & Johnny Winter - Their Final Studio Recording Together


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Featured Musicians: Johnny Winter, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, Willie Smith, Charles Calmese & Bob Margolin


    Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one of the
    founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar,
    his unique vocal prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago
    and Mississippi Delta blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations
    upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.


    With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native
    began working in the late seventies with one of his biggest fans Johnny
    Winter, cutting his final four albums for Blue Sky Records, earning both the
    artist and producer both Grammy Awards for several of them.


    Their final studio recording King Bee, shows the artist and producer in
    very rare and rockin' form. The 1981 blues smash features a plethora of
    Muddy Waters originals, as well as tip of the hat to Slim Harpo with Muddy's
    classic rendition of King Bee.


    Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary late great
    Johnny Winter on guitar, James Cotton on harp and the masterful Pinetop
    Perkins on piano, King Bee would go on to become one of the more revered
    studio albums in Muddy Water's extensive recorded catalog.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits King Bee, Muddy
    continues to rock the house through a treasure trove of 9 more blues
    champions which made this Lp the classic that it is. The album features
    classic gems like his classics I Feel Like Going Home, Champagne And
    Reefer, and Deep Down In Florida. Noted for introducing his Chicago laden
    blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, King Bee is just
    another example of how important this late blues master's music was and
    still is to millions of fans across the globe.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary arsenal of fine
    recordings of Muddy Waters. That is why we are so very proud to announce
    another installment in The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile
    Vinyl Series with his legendary final studio masterpiece King Bee.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter,
    John Lee Hooker) for the first time on audiophile vinyl, King Bee will truly
    become one of the most important and historical 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
    titles to be released in quite some time.


    To further celebrate this first time audiophile vinyl LP, we enhance this
    limited edition masterwork with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the
    original artwork elements as well as rare inner photos, which now are a
    permanent part of the inside gatefold art, which show the man who helped
    fuse blues and rock music for millions of music lovers across the globe.

    King Strings

    John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Johnny "Guitar" Watson And More On 180 Gram Vinyl Pressed At R.T.I.


    Selected from the crown jewels of the rich King-Federal-DeLuxe discography, King Strings features rocking, socking guitar instrumentals from the Cincinnati-based family of labels cut between 1949 and 1962, programmed for power! Fashioned as a vintage King LP from the era and containing a killer line-up of the biggest talents the stable of labels offered, this is the historic various artists collection that should have been issued circa 1962. King was central to the underlying creative flow in R&B during the era, and the recordings here show the depth of style and synergy that the label routinely captured on vinyl. From the proto-funk groove of Hooker's "Stomp Boogie" (under the pseudonym Texas Slim) to two cuts of Baker magic captured in Paris over a decade later, and including key cuts from Freddy King, Albert King, Johnny "Guitar" Watson and many others in between, you'll individually hear a variety of instruments, tones and techniques, but together the clear, common artistry of the players' sovereign ability, sequenced like a long, climactic solo-this is the sound of some of the most heralded talent of the guitar generation! Includes a rich, detailed insert with rare photos and extensive liner notes by Colin Escott. Join six-string soul royalty for a showcase from the company that called itself The King of Them All!

    King Bee

    King Bee is the final release by Blues legend Muddy Waters (born in 1913 as McKinley Morganfield), originally released in 1981 and produced by Johnny Winter. Due to Waters' failing health, the LP was recorded in only three days in May of 1980. The LP includes newly recorded Muddy Waters classics, such as I'm A King Bee, Champagne & Reefer, Sad Sad Day and (My Eyes) Keep Me In Trouble. Around the time of the album's release, Waters hit the road with a new band as much as his slowly declining health allowed him to.


    By the end of 1981, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and had to have part of his lung removed. Still, in 1982 a new tour was booked but an increasing number of performances had to be canceled. And after having made a surprise appearance at an Eric Clapton concert in Miami that Summer, Waters found out the cancer had returned as he was coughing blood. Sadly, his body wasn't strong enough for another operation. On April 30, 1983 McKinley Morganfield died of a heart attack. Five years later he was posthumously inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Amongst his admirers are Buddy Guy, The Rolling Stones, Rory Gallagher, John Mayall and Steve Winwood.

    King Creole


    The Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrate The 55th Anniversary Of Elvis Presley's Smash Soundtrack Album King Creole!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Manufactured At R.t.i.


    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during
    the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys.


    These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.


    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his
    contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And
    Roll" trademark to his name.


    In 1958 after several chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, more incredible fame followed as the King
    Creole movie starring Elvis Presley became a box office smash. The soundtrack album also was a blockbuster as it topped the
    charts, making this his sixth smash album in a row! Both the King Creole movie and soundtrack LP truly proved once again that his
    career was unlike any other in music history.


    Filled with more hits than a New Orleans jukebox, the King Creole album takes off with several smashes in a row, including
    the classic title track rocker King Creole featuring Scotty Moore's trail blazing guitar work and the chart topping single Hard Headed
    Woman. More soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful ballad Young Dreams and the rockin' blues of his huge classic Trouble,
    which truly made the album a treasure trove of hits. The album also features the stellar bayou rock blues of Crawfish which amazingly sounds like some of the classic southern rock sounds to grace the radio throughout the sixties and seventies. In total, the
    album showcases 11 important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce
    the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic King Creole by Elvis Presley.


    As another classic installment in our exciting Elvis Presley 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, we are very pleased to present
    this masterwork in all its high fidelity glory. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and manufactured at
    R.T.I., King Creole will be a much anticipated audiophile dream release for Elvis fans everywhere!

    Bossa Nova and Blues


    This Sundazed Mono Edition Reproduces The Original Artwork And Presents The Original 12-Song LP On 180 Gram Vinyl Mastered From The Original Analog Reels And Pressed At Record Technology Inc.


    One of the Three Kings of blues guitar along with B.B. and Albert, Texas-born Freddy (Freddie) King influenced everyone from Eric Clapton and Peter Green in the UK to Jerry Garcia and Stevie Ray Vaughan in the States. But even his staying up all night playing poker with Grand Funk wasn't enough to prevent his seminal King/Federal albums from staying out of print on vinyl for decades - until Sundazed came to the rescue. The reissue campaign that began with meticulously mastered editions of King classics Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King, Freddy King Gives You a Bonanza of Instrumentals, and Freddy King Goes Surfin' continues with his rare 1963 offering, Bossa Nova and Blues. In the tradition of his surfing album, which wasn't really surf, Bossa Nova and Blues had no bossa nova - but the advertising was at least half true, and hey, there were two cuts that had "bossa nova" in the title. Though King was best known for blues instrumentals, "Bossa Nova Blues" and "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist" (dig the dance craze threesome) were actually the only two instrumentals on an album otherwise dedicated to bluesy ballads. But of course, Freddie made it work - churning out bonafide classics like the karmic "Someday, After A While (You'll Be Sorry)" (later covered by John Mayall and the Blues Breakers on A Hard Road, also reissued on Sundazed mono LP), the emotive "The Welfare (Turns Its Back on You)," the soulful "It Hurts to Be In Love," and the more uptempo, New Orleans-flavored "You're Barkin' Up the Wrong Tree."

    The Big Blues

    Sourced from the Original King Mono Master Tapes

    Pressed on 180-Gram Vinyl at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI)


    Standing well over six feet and weighing in at around 250 pounds, it's no surprise that Albert King earned the nickname "The Velvet Bulldozer." Standing on stage with his Gibson Flying V, named Lucy, King cut an imposing visual figure. After a few abortive recording attempts, King scored a #14 R&B single on King Records with "Don't Throw Your Love on Me So Strong" in 1961. The song captured the distinctive call-and-response style between King's voice and guitar, a direct extension of his gospel roots and it was included on his debut album, The Big Blues. Backed by a razor sharp band, which included Ike Turner on piano, King showed an authoritative command of ballads, rumbas and mid-tempo shuffles. It was a sound honed in countless club gigs, a "vivid sound" as the LP jacket rightly proclaimed. To restore this sound to its royal splendor, Sundazed sourced this reissue from the original King mono master tapes. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI) in Camarillo, CA, this resurrected LP boasts breathtaking sound. Nothing less would have been worthy of one of the most important albums in the blues pantheon. All hail King Albert!

    St. Louis Blues

    Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 1,600-word essay by Jordan Taylor on the album and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process. This truly is a no-expenses-spared project, resulting in the ultimate version of this title.


    An influential figure in the early 20th century development of blues and popular music as a music scholar and as the composer of numerous popular songs, W.C. Handy has often been called the Father of the Blues. When two of the finest and most popular of mid-20th century musical figures, jazz and popular music icon Nat King Cole and style setting arranger extraordinare Nelson Riddle undertook an album dedicated to the music of W.C. Handy, the results were at once a worthy tribute and transformative. Particularly smooth vocals by Nat King Cole were aptly backed by resourceful orchestrations from Nelson Riddle. From the landmark laments of St. Louis Blues and the loving appreciation of Morning Star on through to the colloquial rag of Joe Turner's Blues, the varied facets of W.C. Handy's songs were given a lastingly freshened interpretation. Along with the contemporary Louis Armstrong Plays W.C. Handy (also available here at Acoustic Sounds), this album is considered by many to be the best anthology of the music of W.C. Handy.


    Using the original first generation 3-track session tapes from Capitol's vaults and all-analogue systems including custom headstacks, 3-track preview heads, console and monitoring chain installed at AcousTech specially for these releases, mastering engineers Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman realize the rich beauty of these recordings in this double 45-RPM 180-gram album set. Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 1,600-word essay by Jordan Taylor on the album and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process. This truly is a no-expenses-spared project, resulting in the ultimate version of this title and a historic reissue.

    Freddy King Goes Surfin'

    Pressed on 180 Gram Vinyl at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI) and Sourced From the Original King/Federal Analog Tapes


    Syd Nathan, impresario of Cincinnati's King Records, was the epitome of the old-school indie record label owner. Always hustling, Nathan regularly beat the odds to release hit after hit in multiple genres. He'd try anything if he thought it might work, or more precisely, if he thought it would make money. After issuing the hit album Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King, Syd sensed untapped potential in the LP. Inspired by the West Coast surf scene, he conjured a little marketing magic...GET A NEW COVER WITH SOME SURF KIDS! THROW SOME CROWD NOISE OVER TRACKS SO IT SOUNDS "LIVE"! CALL IT...ERR...FREDDY KING GOES SURFIN'! PRESS IT AND HAVE IT ON THE SHELVES BY NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!


    While it may not have happened EXACTLY like that, King Records did release the album containing the very same songs (in precisely the same running order) as Let's Hide Away...with crowd noise dubbed over the music. And it WORKED! Fellow Lone Star blues maven Billy F. Gibbons later picked it as one of his Top Ten Favorite Blues Albums of All Time. Sundazed is proud to present Freddy King Goes Surfin' in magnificent mono fidelity. Cowabunga!

    Black To Blues (Pre-Order)

    In April 2016, Black Stone Cherry released Kentucky, to great critical and commercial success. Kentucky reached new chart peaks for the band worldwide and was followed by massive touring through the United States, Europe, and Australia. In the midst of this all, the band found the time and dedication to record Black to Blues. On this EP, the quartet of Chris Robertson (vocals, guitar), Ben Wells (guitar, vocals), Jonathan Lawhon (bass, vocals) and John Fred Young (drums, harmonica, vocals) channel their blues music roots. The EP features six blues-classics originally written and/or performed by legendary musicians like Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Booker T. Jones, Albert King and Freddy King. On Black to Blues, these traditional songs get wildly Black Stone Cherry-fied, while also paying homage to the original on the other hand.
