    Tical

    2014 is the 20th anniversary of Tical, the debut solo album of Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man, released November 15, 1994, on Def Jam Records. It
    was the first Wu-Tang solo album released after the group's debut,Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Similar to all first generation solo Wu-Tang
    projects, Tical was mainly produced by group member RZA. The album features guest appearances from several Wu-Tang members including RZA,
    Raekwon, & Inspectah Deck. The album was a commercial success, reaching number four on the Billboard 200, and number one on the Top R&B/Hip
    Hop Albums chart. On July13, 1995, it was certified platinum. This success was driven by its two singles, Bring the Pain and I'll Be There for You/You're
    All I Need to Get By. Tical has since been hailed by several music critics as a hip hop classic and its success is matched by its influence as a major piece
    in the East coast hip hop renaissance.

    Blackout! 2

    With over 16 years in the business, Redman & Method Man are certifiable rap superstars with a devoted fan-base that spans the globe. The secret to their longevity as one of raps longest lasting duos is due in part to the fact that the two emcees bring fun to hip-hop. Hardly taking themselves too seriously, Red & Meth have always been about good times and carefree humor, as evidenced on their debut album Blackout! (1999) and the follow-up How High Soundtrack (2001). Their comedic personalities allowed them to transition to the big screen in the cult classic film How High (2001) as well as the small screen with the FOX sitcom Method & Red (2004). Now they're back with the sequel to their debut, Blackout 2! The album features production from Pete Rock, Erick Sermon and Rockwilda among others.

    Printed Innersleeves


    Featuring Method Man, Slick Rick, RZA, Ginuwine, Raekwon


    Ghostface Killah is an American rapper and critically acclaimed for his loud, fast-paced flow and his colorful storytelling rap. His stage name was taken from one of the characters in the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing and he is the founder of his own label Starks Enterprises.


    He was a prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan and after the group achieved breakthrough success in the aftermath of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the members went on to pursue solo careers on which Ghostface Killah was the most successful one of the group.


    The rapper started off his solo-career with Ironman in 1996, which was well received by music critics. He has continued his success over the following years with critically acclaimed albums such as Supreme Clientele (2000), Bulletproof Wallets (2001) and Fishscale (2006).


    Bulletproof Wallets is the third studio album by Ghostface Killah. Its feature single, Never Be the Same Again, featured Carl Thomas and Raekwon. He had another club hit with Flowers, which featured guest vocals from fellow Wu-Tang members Method Man and Raekwon, and a popular single Ghost Showers which featured Madame Majestic, who also sung on the popular Wu-Tang track Gravel Pit.

    Gatefold Sleeve

    Includes Fuck Them Featuring Method Man, Sneakers, Yae Yo and Power

    Immobilarity is the second studio album and the follow-up to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx by Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon (a.k.a. The Chef). Raekwon has been cited as a pioneer of Mafioso rap and is the founder of his own label ICEH20 Records.

    The producers Triflyn, The Infinite Arkatechz, and Six July Productions gave Immobilarity the same sounds which producer RZA gave to Raekwon's first album with ill beats and street lyrics.

    Fellow rappers from the Wu-Tang Clan also appear on the album such as Method Man on Fuck Them, Power with the American Cream Team and The Table featuring Masta Killa. As a nice bonus attribute, there's even a solid Pete Rock produced track Sneakers with Raekwon's flowing rhymes.

    Raekwon explained that the album title is an acronym for I Move More Officially by Implementing Loyalty and Respect in the Youth.

    The album, which was originally released in 1999, reached to number 2 in the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and number 4 on the US Billboard album charts and was certified gold by the RIAA.

Method Man, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon have banded together on their new album of street bangers, Wu Massacre. Joined by fellow Wu-Tang alums Inspectah Deck and Cappadona on several tracks, and featuring production by RZA and Mathematics, Meth, Ghost and Raes Wu Massacre is guaranteed to satisfy the legions of fans in the Wu Army.

    Miss E...So Addictive (Pre-Order)

    After a long winter of discontent, So Addictive finds Missy Elliott hoping to initiate hip-hop's summer of love. Miss E's third album is dosed with feel-good flavor and has more guests than the VIP section of the hippest hip-hop hot spot. Buddies Method Man and Redman bark across the bridge of Dog in Heat's canine funk. Jay-Z and Ludacris feature on two different versions of One Minute Man's scathing soul. Synths tweak and creak in rhythm as Missy unleashes a dreamy diss of those hopeless suitors who unload their cargo before they've sparked her ignition. Take Away features Pony man Ginuwine on a hypnotic slow-burner heavily reminiscent of Art of Noise's Moments in Love.

    When left to her own devices, as she is on Lick Shots (which jangles like Django Reinhardt on downers), Missy comes on like Schooly D, a fearless, female gangsta licking shots against anyone who dares cross her. On Scream a.k.a. Itchin' she breaks into a soprano. A 4/4 stomp is stamped indelibly across the ecstasy-holler song 4 My People (featuring Eve). Overall, it feels as if producer Timbaland has muted his experimental leanings on this outing with his favorite muse in favor of submersible club tracks. Musically, the bhangra beat bop of Get Ur Freak On is the standout. The spiral timing of Whatcha Gon' Do, the fret-skipping Slap! Slap Slap! (featuring Da Brat), and the sunken, drunken funk of the not-so-subtle X-hex X-Tasy are tied at a close second. -Chris Campion

    Andrew Neyman is a 19-year-old jazz drummer, dreaming of greatness but unsure if his dream will ever come true. Haunted by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew is determined to rise to the top of the country's most elite music conservatory. One night, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), a conductor equally known for his talent for teaching as he is for the terrifying method of his instruction, discovers Andrew practicing the drums. Even though Fletcher says very little to him that night, he ignites in Andrew a passion to achieve his goal. To Andrew's surprise, the next day, Fletcher requests that he be transferred into his band. This single act changes the young man's life forever.

    Eleven Eleven

    On Dave Alvin's new album Eleven Eleven, the man who many credit with pioneering what has come to be known as 'roots rock,' revisits the burning, guitar-centered blues-rock that initially defined his career along with his band The Blasters in the late 1970s.


    After The Blasters, Alvin explored the path of American folk music, a road that led to classic albums and Grammy wins (for his album Public Domain: Songs from the Wild Land), establishing him as one of America's most distinguished songwriters and California's de facto roots music ambassador.


    Fast forward to Eleven Eleven and Dave is ready to raise the stakes again, calling on some Blasters including his brother Phil, with whom he duets for the first time ever on record. The inaugurals continue with Dave writing all the songs while on the road touring, a first for the seasoned performer.


    The new method clearly sparked new ideas for Alvin, with the blistering guitar runs and Bo Diddley beat of Run Conejo Run sidling up alongside the gentle finger-picking of the tremolo-soaked No Worries Mija.


    Eleven Eleven also features Harlan County Line, the song featured, along with an Alvin cameo as himself, in FX original series Justified and his highest and fastest-selling digital single ever.

    Tubular Bells III

    Tubular Bells III is a record quite similar to Mike Oldfield's second update of the original classic, recorded just six years prior. The production methods are a bit more polished and the tone is more serious, but the music remains dreamy, somewhat overevocative new age-with-a-beat music, quite similar to Enigma -- thanks to the Eastern textures of vocalist Amar on three tracks. There are a few occasional moments of levity, however, including the raging guitar stormer Outcast and a remake of Oldfield's early-'80s hit Man in the Rain.

    Elvis Presley: Gold Records Vol. 4 (Speakers Corner)

    At first sight, it does not look as though Elvis's 31st album was destined to be a hit. But if you take a look at his artistic biography in the year of its release - 1968 - then you will recognise the clever gimmicks that his wide-awake management employed to captivate rock 'n' roll fans when Elvis was somewhat 'stiff in the hips'. In this fourth Gold Edition, a tried and tested method was used to create a new LP: namely, a compilation of single hits from the years 1961 to 1967. The result was just what fans wanted! Alongside sentimental songs such as Love Letters, the tearjerker Lonely Man and the sobbing, heartstring tugging ballad It Hurts Me, we find spirited rock 'n' roll (Witchcraft, Ain't That Loving You Baby) and honky-tonk blues (A Mess Of Blues) in a toned-down 12-beat measure. In contrast, Don't Drag That String Around is cheerful, light and springy and, - for a change - not a blues number.
    Then we have the country song Devil In Disguise with its angry lyrics, and the soul title What'd I Say by Ray Charles with an electric sound that is lent by the Rhodes piano. All in all, this LP is a great collection from the grand old days of rock 'n' roll.



    Musicians:



    • Elvis Presley (guitar, vocal)

    • The Jordanaires (vocal)

    • and various bands




    Recordings: Juyl 1960 - June 1966 at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee, RCA Studios and Radio Recorders in Hollywood

    Production: Steve Sholes, Chet Atkins, George Stoll, Felton Jarvis, a.o.


    About Speakers Corner



    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Crime Cutz

    The new EP Crime Cutz is the first new original Holy Ghost! music since the NYC-based duo of Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel released their sophomore album 2013's Dynamics.


    As with most of their catalog, Crime Cutz benefits from Holy Ghost!'s insistence on tactile instrumentation with live drums recorded over the track to accelerate its tempo. The duo are quite methodical in their output--shimmering bursts of disco, synth-pop, and lingering grooves--but that doesn't mean Holy Ghost! is not prodigious.


    Over nearly a decade, they have gone from being DFA's rising sons to triple threats: indefatigable DJs, producers remixing new life into the work of Cut Copy and Katy Perry alike, and inventive musicians who've released countless original singles. They're again adding to their thinking-man's dance repertoire with the vibrant Crime Cutz EP out on DFA Records.

    The Stranger

    Ranked 67/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Billy Joel has become the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in the United States. He has had multiple Top 10 hits in the '80s and '90s, all of which he wrote singlehandedly. He is also a six-time Grammy Award winner, has sold over 100 million records worldwide and was inducted into almost every Hall of Fame there exists. Joel retired from recording pop music in 1993 but continues to tour, often with Elton John.


    'The Stranger' is his fifth studio album, originally released in 1977. While his four previous albums had been moderate chart successes, this was his breakthrough album. It remains Joel's best-selling non-compilation album to date. 'The Stranger' contains nine songs, many of which are now considered "classic Joel". Much of the album's success is attributed to Joel's collaboration with producer Phil Ramone, whose innovative production methods complemented Joel's songs. This fruitful collaboration would continue for a decade.


    Whereas a handful of Joel's preceding efforts feature a near-flawless mix of melodic arrangements and poignant lyrics, the aspects he sought in order to graduate into a more serious artist arrive here via Ramone's more muscular, fleshed-out, and rock-enabling production. The streamlined approach slightly strips back the sweeping developments heard on Piano Man and Turnstiles, and on this edition, lays bare the core of the material, allowing the vocalist's bittersweet yearning, rollicking 88 notes, and working-class conviction to emanate with full-bodied detail, vivid color, and grand-scale dynamics.


    A Grammy winner for both Record and Song of the Year, "Just the Way You Are" epitomizes Joel's balladic reach, his ability to transfer wistful sentiments and lovelorn emotions. He also flashes a mean streak. The animated "Only the Good Die Young" bounces and hops to an updated classic-R&B rhythm and, underneath its beauty, "She's Always A Woman" hints at trouble underfoot. And then there's the New York-centric, character-rich poetry of the vignettes.


    Akin to many of his influences, Joel nails the grit, personality, specificity, descriptiveness, and behavior of protagonists that populate "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" and "Scenes From an Italian Diner," each equally at home on The Stranger as well as on a Broadway play or on a golden-era Hollywood film soundtrack. No wonder that, just months after its original release, Joel was no longer a stranger to any of the music-loving public. He would never look back.

    ArrangingTime

    Pete Yorn will release his sixth full-length studio album, and first for Capitol Records, ArrangingTime, in 2016.


    ArrangingTime plays with the elasticity of the years- it's not only a culmination of the Los Angeles by way of New Jersey artist's adventurous latter-day projects, but a return to his original leaner methods. For the first time since Yorn's RIAA gold-certified debut, musicforthemorningafter [2001] and its follow-up Day I Forgot [2003] producer R. Walt Vincent returns to help Yorn execute his most poised and diverse set of songs yet. ArrangingTime runs the gamut from elegiac folk to wasteland blues to upbeat, synth-kissed rock. Of course, some things never change. Yorn still plays the observer, stepping into characters - or his past selves from previous years - routing wistful poems and beatific visions through the weather-beaten voice of a man who's seen a few things in his time.


    "I'll look at pictures of places I went, or things I did," says Yorn, "and I think, 'Look at how great that day was and you just missed it.' I think about the past and how much of it is a blur. The title of the album is a reminder to be present and within each song is a minor lesson about that. Time only gets faster as you get older."

    Changes (Pure Pleasure)

    Contemporary jazz vocalists, caught in the current trend to accelerate their careers, are often indistinguishable from the pack, the essence of their music lost in haste. With her release of "Changes", veteran singer Carmen Lundy proves that this premise does not apply to her, rising to that proverbial summit to enjoy the rarefied air of the chosen few.


    Graced and gifted with a smooth, effortless voice, Lundy has been highly heralded since her landmark 2005 record, Live at the Madrid (Afrasia). Though she has done other records since, she is back with a supple encore of original compositions and novel directions. She states that she approached these songs with the guitar in mind and, accordingly, brought in premier guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves for his expertise in dealing with subtle, nuanced rhythms. Though he lays back on much of the recording, on Sleeping Alone he begins with his soft guitar sketching a distant samba. Lundy delivers the swaying tempo as only she can. They combine for another guitar/vocal duet on Where Love Surrounds Us, where the acoustic arrangement is sublime.


    There is a definite retro feel to this production, which hails back to a period of authentic recording methods when musicians took their time in composing, arranging and rehearsing. Pianist Anthony Wonsey plays a vintage Fender Rhodes on So Beautiful and Too Late For Love, which features trumpet man Nolan Shaheed playing off of the vocals. The band is fully in tune under Lundy's spell and the result is stupendous.


    Lundy attests that she is taking chances and making changes in her approach to songwriting and performing, and there is an underlying percussive element drifting throughout the selections. With a caressing style that blends intention with improvisation, Changes is that personal record she had within her. She has let it out for the world to hear.


    Musicians:



    • Carmen Lundy (vocal, harp)

    • Nolan Shaheed (fluegel horn, trumpet)

    • Antony Wonsey (piano, electric piano)

    • George Bohanon (trombone)

    • Oscar Castro-neves(guitar)

    • Kenny Davis (bass)

    • Jamison Ross (drums, percussion)



    Recording: June 2011 at Castle Oaks Recording Studios, Calabasas (CA), by Don Murray

    Production: Elisabeth Oei


    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.

    This Old Dog

    Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twentysomething
    rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: Mac
    DeMarco has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing
    an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip.
    This Old Dog makes for his fifth in just over half a decade-bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According
    to the DMV, DeMarco is 26. But in working-dog years, ol' Mac here could easily
    qualify for social security. To stay gold, turns out all he needed was some new tricks.
    It was a little space-in time, location, and method-that inspired DeMarco while
    making the record. Moving from his isolated Queens home to a house in Los Angeles
    helped give the somewhat transient Canada-native a base, and a few more months
    on his calendar to create did their job as well. Arriving in California with a grip of
    demos he'd written in New York, he realized after a few months of setting up his new
    shop-complete with a few new toys-that the gap was giving him perspective (insert
    tooth joke here).


    Right off the bat, from the pops and clicks of the CR-78 drum machine and acoustic
    strums on the album-opening "My Old Man," the synth-drenched beauty of the
    second track, "This Old Dog," it's clear that DeMarco's bag is filled with new tricks
    indeed. This Old Dog is rooted more in a synth-base than any of his previous releases,
    but he is careful not to let that tactic overshadow the other instruments and overall
    "unplugged" mood of the work: "This is my acoustic album, but it's not really an acoustic
    album at all. That's just what it feels like, mostly," says DeMarco.


    Despite the changes considered during the creation of This Old Dog, Mac DeMarco's
    mid-twenties masterpiece, it's clear that the engine that motors him is in no
    danger of slowing down.

    Hell On Earth (Out Of Stock)

    By the time Mobb Deep hit with their third album - Hell On
    Earth - they were solidified street legends. Coming off the
    critically acclaimed The Infamous, Havoc and Prodigy hit
    the lab and came back with a soundtrack that is fitting to
    its title. Havoc's production is atmospheric; laced with his
    trademark drums loops and sharp pianos stabs. Add
    Prodigy's trademark flow and it's evident that the pairing
    is such an amazing match. While Hell On Earth is essentially
    a continuation of The Infamous you can still hear the
    growth in both performers and Hell On Earth stands as
    some of their best work. The album features guest
    appearances by Nas, Raekwon, Method Man, and
    frequent collaborator Big Noyd.


    The album stands out for its acclaimed singles G.O.D. Pt.
    III and Hell on Earth (Front Lines), as well as "Drop a
    Gem on 'Em. Standout album cuts are "Animal Instinct",
    "Bloodsport", "More Trife Life" and "Can't Get Enough".
    The previously as a B Side "Still Shinin'" still rings off and
    rounding out the album is the deep "Apostle's Warning".
    This album is essential listening and a must have and we
    are excited to have it back in print on double LP.

    From Fear To Eternity (Out Of Stock)

    From Fear To Eternity: The Best of 1990-2010 is a 3LP set spanning 20 years of music following the huge 2010 studio album The Final Frontier, which hit #1 in 28 countries around the world. It also became the band's highest-charting album in the U.S., where Iron Maiden was also awarded their first Grammy for Best Metal Performance for El Dorado, which is also included on this collection.


    Iron Maiden's current phenomenal global success has seen the band not only scale new-found heights aided by their unique method of touring, but has meant their ever-expanding fan base now encompasses a brand new generation of metal lovers. From Fear To Eternity is a chance for these fans to explore the group's rich history, with the highlights of their last eight studio albums distilled into this handy collection, which follows 2009's Somewhere Back In Time, a compilation of their earlier work from 1980-1990.


    Perennial favorites found on this album include songs also featured on Maiden's The Final Frontier World Tour set list, such as Fear of the Dark, The Wicker Man, Blood Brothers, and Dance Of Death alongside recent classics El Dorado and the hauntingly evocative When The Wild Wind Blows. It also includes singles like Holy Smoke and Be Quick or Be Dead together with more progressive thought-provoking album tracks like Afraid To Shoot Strangers and For the Greater Good of God. This 'Best-of' collection charts the musical development of Britain's most successful metal band as they have evolved their sound, producing longer, more complex songs, while gaining huge critical acclaim in the process.

    The Nightfly (45 RPM Box Set) (Out Of Stock)

    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes With Mobile Fidelity's One-Step Process: The Nightfly US1S 45RPM Box Set Is The Ultimate Analog Version Of Donald Fagen's 1982 Landmark Debut


    Lavish Packaging Includes Opulent Box And Special Foil-Stamped Jackets: Deluxe Audiophile Pressing Strictly Limited To 6000 Numbered Copies


    Cinema For The Ears: The Nightly Remains One Of The Best-Sounding Albums Ever Made With Reference Production, Standout Playing, And Jazz-Like Arrangements That Embody Timeless Cool


    Donald Fagen's largely autobiographical The Nightfly remains one of the best-sounding albums ever made. Revered by audiophiles, the Steely Dan co-founder's 1982 set immediately became a demonstration disc at hi-fi shows and audio salons the world over. It also quickly emerged as an irreplaceable monitor-evaluating tool for recording-studio engineers and front-of-the-house testing device for concert-venue soundboard engineers who continue to use it today. Painstakingly recorded over eight months by illustrious producer Gary Katz and a Hall of Fame-worthy cast of perfectionist-minded musicians, The Nightfly endures as a rare trifecta of superlative performance, consummate songwriting, and crisp, benchmark production. Mobile Fidelity is honored to give this seminal effort unsurpassed treatment befitting the most serious music connoisseurs.


    Fagen's solo debut reaches three-dimensional sonic and emotional heights never before attained by analog recordings on Mobile Fidelity's opulent UD1S (UltraDisc One-Step) box set. Strictly limited to 5,000 numbered copies, this ultra-hi-fi collector's edition literally and figuratively brings you closer to music that picks up where Steely Dan's Gaucho leaves off. You'll enjoy deep-black backgrounds, boundless soundstaging, pointillist details, staggering dynamics, and arguably, the most lifelike tonalities and nuances ever committed to vinyl. Experienced via UD1S, The Nightfly places Fagen and his session pros in your listening room. Every note, breath, and movement is reproduced with exquisite accuracy, wowing clarity, and impeccable balance. Consider this edition your new go-to reference.


    The lavish packaging and beautiful presentation of Mobile Fidelity's The Nightfly pressing befit its extremely select status. Housed in a deluxe box, this UD1S version contains special foil-stamped jackets and faithful-to-the-original graphics that illuminate the splendor of the recording. No expense has been spared. Aurally and visually, this reissue of The Nightfly is a curatorial artifact meant to be preserved, poured over, touched, and examined. It is made for discerning listeners that prize sound quality and creativity, and who desire to fully immerse themselves in the art - and everything involved with the album, from the images to the textures and liner notes.


    Nominated for seven Grammy Awards, The Nightfly represent[s] certain fantasies that might have been entertained by a young man growing up in the remote suburbs of a northeastern city during the late fifties and early sixties, i.e., one of my general height, weight, and build, pens Fagen in the liner notes, revealing the work's thematic thrust and wistful, nostalgic appeal. At their core, songs look at the world via an optimistic, mindfully innocent lens and through the eyes of an adolescent holed up in his bedroom with his ear to a radio whose exciting transmissions inspire thoughts of futuristic cities, late-night deejays, otherworldly hopes, and Cold War romances. Cinema for the ears, The Nightfly comes on like a film transferred to wax - its stories filled with relatable vulnerability, ambition, and warmth.


    It is also timelessly cool, with everything from the iconic album cover - complete with Fagen in the role of a cigarette-smoking disk jockey spinning a Sonny Rollins album on an RCA turntable at 4:09 in the morning - to the flawless playing honoring the laid-back, hip, stylish jazz pedigree of the arrangements. Indeed, The Nightfly's fame owes as much to the stunning contributions by stickler musicians - saxophonist Michael Brecker, trumpeter Randy Brecker, guitarist Larry Carlton, drummer Steve Jordan, bassist Marcus Miller, drummer Jeff Porcaro, and Harmonica Frank Floyd included - as it does the particulars behind its creation, which involved cutting-edge technology, novel microphoning techniques, and pioneering recording methods that gave Fagen exactly what he demanded. His insistence on dialing in exacting drum sounds is by itself the stuff of legend.


    The results of the meticulous sessions transcend eras and generations - part of its very design. Virtually every track connects with classic 50s and 60s styles. Green Flower Street doubles as an homage to the jazz standard On Green Dolphin Street. The title track draws imagery from blues pioneer Charley Patton. Ruby Baby references soul greats the Drifters. Maxine nods to harmonies perfected by big-band vocal quartets like the Four Freshmen. The Goodbye Look acknowledges the bossa-nova craze of Fagen's youth. In all respects, The Nightfly rules the airwaves.


    More About Mobile Fidelity UltraDisc One-Step and Why It Is Superior

    Instead of utilizing the industry-standard three-step lacquer process, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's new UltraDisc One-Step (UD1S) uses only one step, bypassing two processes of generational loss. While three-step processing is designed for optimum yield and efficiency, UD1S is created for the ultimate in sound quality. Just as Mobile Fidelity pioneered the UHQR (Ultra High-Quality Record) with JVC in the 1980s, UD1S again represents another state-of-the-art advance in the record-manufacturing process. MFSL engineers begin with the original master tapes and meticulously cut a set of lacquers. These lacquers are used to create a very fragile, pristine UD1S stamper called a convert. Delicate converts are then formed into the actual record stampers, producing a final product that literally and figuratively brings you closer to the music. By skipping the additional steps of pulling another positive and an additional negative, as done in the three-step process used in standard pressings, UD1S produces a final LP with the lowest noise floor possible today. The removal of the additional two steps of generational loss in the plating process reveals tremendous amounts of extra musical detail and dynamics, which are otherwise lost due to the standard copying process. The exclusive nature of these very limited pressings guarantees that every UD1S pressing serves as an immaculate replica of the lacquer sourced directly from the original master tape. Every conceivable aspect of vinyl production is optimized to produce the most perfect record album available today.
