    Takes To The Hills (Pure Pleasure)

    The incomparable and profoundly influential pianist/singer-songwriter Mose Allison - who's inspired everyone from Georgie Fame, The Who and The Clash to Van Morrison and Pixies - developed his own unique, idiosyncratic style that melded an ironic sense of wit and humour with country-blues inflections and a bebop-esque vocabulary. Besides cool playing and his uniquely smoky singing, has great taste in material. Hey Good Lookin' fits right in with revisited versions of I Love the Life I Live, I Ain't Got Nobody and Baby Please Don't Go, complete with what the singer himself calls his distinctive 'involuntary groan' during the piano solo. Teo Macero's intimate production makes it feel like you're right there in the studio.



    Musicians:



    • Mose Allison (piano, vocals)

    • Addison Farmer, Henry Grimes, Aaron Bell (bass)

    • Jerry Segal (drums)

    • Paul Motian, Osie Johnson (drums)



    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.

It's an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of rock'n'roll alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists.

    Roll With The Punches was produced by Van Morrison and recorded with an incredible team of studio collaborators including Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.

    Rocket Ship Beach (Awaiting Repress)

    Formerly lead singer with the acclaimed US alternative rock band the Del Fuegos, Zanes launched his solo career in 1995 with the release of Cool Down Time. Produced by Mitchell Froom with help from Tom Waits associate Tchad Blake, this collection anchored elements of blues and country as accompaniment to Zanes` dark narratives of loss, hurt and betrayal. As well as a cover version of Mose Allison`s `If You Live`, the artist`s own writing included the affecting ballad `Carelessly` and the tough blues of `Rough Spot`.


    After relocating to New York City in the late 90s, Zanes settled down to family life with his wife and new baby. He began playing with a group of fathers under the name the Wonderland String Band, recording a number of privately distributed tapes. The idea evolved into a series of CD releases on Zanes` Festival Five label, featuring guest artists including Sheryl Crow, Aimee Mann, Lou Reed, Suzanne Vega and Dar Williams alongside the original band`s partners and children. Mixing standards, original material and childrens` songs in a delightfully unprententious manner, the series attracted positive reviews and even earned Zanes a Grammy Award for 2006`s Catch That Train!

    The Third Face of Fame (Pure Pleasure)

    Georgie Fame's swinging, surprisingly credible blend of jazz and American R&B earned him a substantial following in his native U.K., where he scored three number one singles during the '60s and a top ten hit with Bonnie & Clyde in the States. Fame played piano and organ in addition to singing, and was influenced by the likes of Mose Allison, Ray Charles, Booker T and the MG's and Louis Jordan. Early in his career, he also peppered his repertoire with Jamaican ska and bluebeat tunes, helping to popularize that genre in England; during his later years, he was one of the few jazz singers of any stripe to take an interest in the vanishing art of vocalese, and earned much general respect from jazz critics on both sides of the Atlantic.



    This set finds him in a suaver, jazzier vein accompanied by a band made up of the cream of jazz musicians on the UK scene at the time. It was at this time, 1967 and 1968, that to much acclaim, he toured as featured vocalist with the Count Basie Orchestra throughout the UK & Europe.



    Musicians:



    • Georgie Fame (piano, organ, vocal) and orchestra

    Cool Cat Blues (Pure Pleasure)

    At last! ... British blues legend Georgie Fame finally has his Magnum Opus committed to the stuff we all love.



    Contained within is a collection of Blues, Jazz and R&B standards mixed with some originals. This musicians' musician is backed by a world class band including Steve Gadd, Robben Ford, Richard Tee, Will Lee, Ralph MacDonald, Hugh McCracken and an uber horn section. Fame's classy, economic Hammond and great voice inspires superb duets with Bozz Scaggs and Richard Tee. Van Morrison, Fame's erstwhile boss, joins him on Moondance and one of his heroes, Jon Hendricks, aids him to fly through Little Pony. There is a slowed down, super sexy Yeah,Yeah and a blistering take on Willie Dixon's I Love The Life I Live. If you like Brother Ray, Mose Allison, Hoagy Carmichael, Van the Man, Peggy Lee and Lambert, Hendricks & Ross then you'll love this.



    On an audiophile note, this studio album from 1990 was recorded 'live' with most tracks done in one or two takes, no overdubs and entirely in the analogue domain. A great album, beautifully recorded, finally done justice on two slabs of 180g by Pure Pleasure.

    • Georgie Fame (vocal, piano, organ)

    • Van Morrison (vocal)

    • Bob Malach (saxophone)

    Think music ain't what it used to be? Then you haven't heard Nick Waterhouse. His jumped-up take on 1950's rhythm 'n' blues is the real deal."
    - GQ


    A timeless talent for spirited rock and rhythms that anyone can appreciate.
    He draws from the classic sound of '50's American pop with a distinctive
    voice of his own, shouting and growling with infectious vigor."
    - NPR


    Waterhouse is definitely a star."
    - LA TIMES


    The music sounds like a party in full swing, each instrument playing exactly what is needed."
    - CHICAGO TRIBUNE


    Between the chattering keys, bomping saxes, gorgeous guitar tones and
    the bandleader's voice-which slides effortlessly from cool quaver to feral
    howl - the end result is undeniable."
    - SPIN


    Nick Waterhouse's art springs from a simple idea: everybody wants to be sombody else. One of his heroes, Van Morrison, got his start covering Bobby
    Bland, whose own musical idol was Nat "King" Cole. In Waterhouse's view,
    emulation is a journey; you never truly succeed, but as the singer, guitarist and songwriter puts it, "You become something on the way there."


    Nick was born in 1986 and grew up in Huntington Beach, known predominantly for
    UFC, commercial surf culture, and tanning salons. He established his musical sensibilities in the middle of the burgeoning southern California Psych-Garage scene (Burger
    records, Ty Segall, McHugh's Distillery studio) while retaining his unique perspective
    on the spirit of American Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll.


    Waterhouse started performing as a teenager. "It was really motivated by fear," he
    recalls. "I'm kind of an introvert, so it was an uncomfortable situation. It was a way
    to force a crisis." The young artist experienced an exhilaration he'd never felt before,
    and hasn't found anywhere else since. "It's a feeling of heightened awareness that goes
    beyond pleasure," Waterhouse explains. "It has something to do with seeing ahead in
    time and behind in time all at once. You don't just get the immediate reward; you get
    the potential that rewards you the same way."


    Waterhouse explored the idea of potential on his breakthrough single, "Some Place," a
    beautifully lean, propulsive track recorded at all-analog studio the Distillery and self
    released in 2010 on his own Pres label. "Well, there's someplace that I'd rather be,"
    Waterhouse sang in a fierce yet plaintive register. "And it's something that's been on my
    mind almost constantly."


    These days, Waterhouse is a successful recording artist, with one well-received LP and
    and several high-profile tours and collaborations to his name. But his latest work still
    embodies the struggle of his early forays. During "This Is a Game," Waterhouse sets up
    a snarly, post-surf guitar solo with a succinct statement of a cynical outlook: "This is a
    game / Please remember my words / And don't get upset when you don't get what you
    think you deserve." And on the gothic-soul strut "Let It Come Down," he meditates on
    the inevitability of pain. "If there's gonna be rain tonight," he sings in a stoic croon.
    "Let it come down."


    It's clear from this material that Waterhouse is in the midst of his own becoming. He
    isn't the type to let ecstasy take over, like Van Morrison, or to drawl away in a consummately laid-back register, like Mose Allison. In the tension between his wry lyrics and
    crisp arrangements, you hear the expression of a worldly skeptic who's also-when it
    comes to his art-a sanctified believer. Whoever it was that Nick Waterhouse wanted to
    be matters less now; these days, he just sounds like himself.
