Extraordinary Sound Transports Listeners To A Small Coffeehouse: You Need To Hear This On Vinyl!
Peyroux's Half The Perfect World And Careless Love Also Available On Mofi 180-gram LP
Having proven several times over that shes among the premier vocal jazz singers on the planet with Half the Perfect World and Careless Loveboth available as limited-edition 180-gram LPs from Mobile FidelityMadeleine Peyroux makes her mark as a songwriter on the exquisite Bare Bones, her first album of originals. A thematic record that begins with wariness, moves to loss, builds to acceptance, and finishes with hope, the critically acclaimed set is Peyrouxs most soul-baring effort.
The records title says it all. Deeply personal and eminently mature, the chanteuse strips everything down, from her emotional guard to the arrangements. Peyroux penned many of the songs with longtime producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell), and also co-wrote the standout You Cant Do Me with Steely Dan legend Walter Becker. As expected, a tart wittiness defines the lyrics, demonstrating Peyrouxs continual growth as an artist. Becker's contributions also spice the title track, while noted tunesmiths Joe Henry and Julian Coryell assist on other songs. As usual, the singer enjoys the sparse, elegant backing of a small group of first-rate musicians. Peyrouxs alto vocals shine.
The empress of the jazzy, languid groove does what she has done on her two bestsellers (and her half-forgotten 1996 debut); purr intimately about life and the iniquities of love over retro backings of brushed drums and polite piano that evoke Billie Holiday. Neil Spencer, The Observer, March 2009
Sonically, Bare Bones continues Peyrouxs tradition of making some of the best-sounding albums around. Her tunesdirect, emotional, beautiful, detailedbenefit from production that emphasizes her strengths and puts a spotlight on the songs, not on any unnecessary tricks or embellishments. This is strictly about the music, its emotional effects on the listener, and the universal healing power of feelings associated with lost love and recovery.
Its hard to imagine a candlelit cocktail bar that wouldnt benefit from playing Madeleine Peyrouxs fourth album, Bare Bones. The ear loves to catch on the inflections of her supple alto, the clear picking on her acoustic guitar, the pacing as slow as a hand-stitched dress. Margaret Wappler, Los Angeles Times, March 2009
Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelitys 180-gram 2-LP set enhances the experiences of hearing Peyrouxs languorous gems. Transparent, airy, three dimensional, fully textured, and featuring extended response from the acoustic bass and guitars, this analog pressing puts you in the middle of a coffeehouse, with Peyroux and her small ensemble seated a few feet in front of you. Its that good.
Mobile Fidelitys collector's vinyl editions of Peyrouxs earlier hit studio albums have sold quickly. Dont wait on this.

A Rainer Ptacek Tribute: The Inner FlameFire Records is proud to be reissuing the complete works of Rainer Ptacek, the phenomenal and much beloved slide guitarist from Tucson, Arizona, who originated Giant Sand's sound from the band's inception, as well as creating many remarkable recordings as a solo artist and with his own band, Das Combo, before succumbing to brain cancer on November 12, 1997.
The reissues start with The Inner Flame, a compilation of accomplished and remarkably diverse artists who were brought together to honor Rainer's inspirational work, featuring talents such as Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, Emmylou Harris, Evan Dando, PJ Harvey, Victoria Williams, Vic Chesnutt, Jonathan Richman, Madeleine Peyroux and of course Giant Sand.
Originally released in 1997, the album was conceived as both a tribute and benefit album, with the proceeds going towards Ptacek's medical bills. Reissued now as a celebration of his remarkable life and extraordinary talent, extra tracks have been added by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Grandaddy, Chuck Prophet, John Wesley Harding and Calexico's Joey Burns & John Convertino.
We offer up this new version to pay tribute and celebrate the man, the likes of whom I've yet to ever encounter again, and allowing a glimpse now of what he had done here on the planet and to share that embrace for ever having known him at all.
The best way here to sum up the man is perhaps by his own quote. Near the end, during his final interview, when asked the impossible question of what he thinks we are all doing here in this life, Rainer answered without hesitation: to love away the pain.LP1
