    Moloch

    Formed in Memphis in 1968 by blues guitar legend Lee Baker. Upon hearing Baker play, Jimmy Page is said to have commented, that's the best white bluesman I ever heard! Produced, written and arranged by Don Nix (Mar-Keys and Paris Pilot) at Memphis' Ardent Studios, Moloch's 1970 debut album is an excellent mix of hard blues and acid rock, with amazing guitar solos by Baker. It was also the first time the song Goin' Down appeared on record (famously covered by Jeff Beck).


    Although Moloch definitely had the chops to make it big (apparently Freddie King covered a few of the band's songs and would hang out and jam with Baker when ever he was in town), they lacked distribution.

    Moloch

    Produced by Don Nix (widely credited as a key architect of the Memphis Sound), this hard-hitting collection of bluesy Acid Rock first appeared on Stax subsidiary Enterprise in 1970. Featuring the outstanding guitar playing of the late Lee Baker (later to play with Alex Chilton) and the original version of Going Down (covered by Freddie King, Jeff Beck, JJ Cale and others), this album is an essential purchase for all fans of blues-influenced rock and roll.

    Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles: Live! (Speakers Corner)

    'Live' was the watchword of the liberated and permissive post-Woodstock era, when anyone and everyone could do wonderful things and musicians really let themselves go - and it opened the door for Santana and his musicians. While devotees of pure styles found it hard to dip into the bubbling melting pot of progressive rock, others - hungry for emotion - plunged eagerly into the moloch world known as 'Sounds of the 70s'.



    Among the great events during this time was the get-together of Santana and a grandiose group of musicians together with Jimmy Hendrix's ex-drummer Buddy Miles at the Sunshine Festival in Hawaii. Inspired by the electrifying atmosphere we hear the smacking sound of an organ in John McLaughlin's Marbles, lush rocking Latin grooves (Lava) and gospel-like vocal artistry (Evil Ways). After an intensively re-worked version of the old favourite Them Changes, in which the band certainly lets one know that they can be 'heavy' when they want, the musicians let themselves go in 25 improvised minutes in Free Form Funkafide Filth. Such unleashed power could never be tamed and captured on tape in the studio simply because it can only be created in the freedom of an open-air stage.



    Musicians:



    • Carlos Santana (guitar)

    • Buddy Miles (drums, vocal)

    • Robert Hogins (organ)

    • Luis Gasca (trumpet)

    • Hadley Caliman (saxophone, flute)

    • Neal Schon (guitar)

    • Ron Johnson (bass)

    • Coke Escovedo (percussion)

    • Gregg Errico (drums)

    • Victor Pantoja, Michael Carabello (conga)



    Recording: January 1972 live in the Diamond Head Crater, Hawaii, USA,

    Production: Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles



    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.
