    I'm Ready (Pure Pleasure)

    For the middle album of his Johnny Winter-produced, late-'70s musical trilogy, blues giant Muddy Waters brought a new spirit to some familiar material. Starting with members of Waters' touring band - pianist Pinetop Perkins, bassist Bob Margolin, and drummer Willie Big Eyes Smith - Winter added underrated guitarist (and longtime Waters foil) Jimmy Rogers and extraordinary harp player Big Walter Horton to the mix. The songs recorded for I'm Ready offer a mix of new material and vintage hit singles like the title cut, the mid-'60s jewel Screamin' and Cryin', or the Willie Dixon-penned I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Waters and band provide these well-worn gems with a little new studio polish, but it is with the newer songs that the performers really shine.



    Musicians:



    • Muddy Waters (guitar, vocal)

    • Johnny Winter, Jimmy Rogers (guitar)

    • Walter Horton, Jerry Portnoy (harmonica)

    • "Pine Top" Perkins (piano)

    • Bob Margolin (bass)

    • Willie "Big Eyes" Smith (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.

    Hard Again

    Muddy Waters needs no introduction. The Chicago-based blues singer has been in the business since the 1940s, influencing the 60s blues rock movement spearheaded by the Rolling Stones.


    Recorded eight years after his last album After The Rain, Hard Again is Muddy Waters' massive comeback album of 1977, opening up with the one song that cemented Muddy's place in Rock & Roll heaven: Mannish Boy. Produced by Johnny Winter (whose ecstatic 'Yeah!'s can be heard on Mannish Boy), Hard Again features Muddy's trademark blues sound: rugged, raw and full of energy.

    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

    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

Water's performances across Europe in the 50s and at Newport helped popularize blues to broader audience, especially to whites. The album is often said to be one of the first blues live albums.


    The album was released in the US on November 15 that year, featuring eight songs, from I Got My Brand On You to Goodbye Newport Blues. Although At Newport 1960 never charted, it received critical acclaim and was influential for future bands.

    Wish I Was In Heaven Sitting Down

    Like jazz, the blues has its share of late bloomers -- artists who didn't start recording or didn't become well-known until they were well into their 50s or 60s. R.L. Burnside is very much a late bloomer; the Mississippi bluesman was born in 1926, but it wasn't until the 1990s that he started to enjoy the publicity he deserved. Recorded in 2000, Wish I Was in Heaven Sitting Down finds the veteran singer continuing to be fairly unpredictable at 73. Essentially, this [album] falls into the Mississippi blues category -- Burnside maintains the earthy, down-home rawness that people expect from Mississippi country-blues. But Burnside certainly isn't without urban influences, and this [album] illustrates his appreciation of John Lee Hooker and early Muddy Waters as well as the Texas blues of Lightnin' Hopkins. Burnside has also been influenced by R&B; one of the few tracks that he didn't write or co-write is a cover of Aretha Franklin's 1960s smash Chain of Fools. The producers (who include Andy Kaulkin, John Porter, and Brad Cook) try to make that track and others relevant to hip-hop by adding sampling and scratching -- and when they do, it sounds forced and unnatural. Some of the producing is simply too high-tech for an artist as raw as Burnside, but that doesn't make his vocals any less impressive. Despite its imperfections, Wish I Was in Heaven Sitting Down is a generally appealing document of Burnside at 73.

    Electric Mud (Awaiting Repress)

    Electric Mud is a studio album by Muddy Waters. Released in 1968, it is a concept album which imagines Muddy Waters as a psychedelic musician. Producer Marshall Chess suggested that Muddy Waters record experimental, psychedelic blues tracks with members of Rotary Connection in an attempt to revive the blues singer's career.


    The album peaked at #127 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. It was controversial for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements, but was influential on psychedelic rock bands of the era.

    Hoodoo Man Blues is not only Junior Wells' initial appearance on record, it is damn near the first LP by a Chicago blues band. Chess and a few other labels had reissued 45's by Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howling Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, etc. but virtually no one had tried to capture the Chicago blues sound free of limitations of juke-box/airplay promotion as Delmark does here. Hoodoo Man Blues is the real Chicago blues from a true blues legend.

    classic gems like his classics Got My Mojo Working, Baby Please Don't Go, and I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Noted for his stellar
    guitar work, pretty much introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, Muddy Waters At
    Newport 1960 became truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues guitarists for years like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat
    and The Rolling Stones. Muddy broke down barriers for millions of music fans worldwide to enjoy rock and blues, making him along
    with John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Robert Johnson one of the first pioneers of the blues and rock genre.

    Live At The Checkerboard Lounge 1981

    White & Black Vinyl


    On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Muddy Waters' club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform. It didn't take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.

    T. Bone Blues

    T-Bone Walker's masterpiece T-Bone Blues on Atlantic Records is often cited as not only one of his finest achievements, but also one of the blues genre's most important crowned jewels. This 1959 classic showcases the late blues master's legendary handling of the electric guitar and his unequalled ability to powerfully sing some of the most revered classics in modern blues history.


    This definitive classic recording features this multi-talented artist's finest tunes like T-Bone Shuffle, Papa Ain't Salty No More and of course the iconic Stormy Monday Blues. Over the years, many acclaimed artists have gone back to this album for inspiration. Classic blues rockers like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, B.B. King, John Mayall, The Allman Brothers, Boz Scaggs and Doug Sahm have all interpreted several songs from this classic album. Out of print for over forty years in the vinyl format, Friday Music is thrilled to announce the first time 180g gram audiophile vinyl release of T-Bone Walker's landmark masterpiece T-Bone Blues.


    Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (T-Bone Walker/Muddy Waters/Johnny Winter/Boz Scaggs) from the original Atlantic Records monophonic tapes, this audiophile LP truly excites the listener, as each note bent and every vocal laid down by T-Bone Walker are truly captured in this historic recording.


    Friday Music has corrected the original running order of this wonderful blues release, the first time since 1959, as well as used the original artwork elements and the stunning liner notes written by the late Ralph J. Gleason. As always, Friday Music includes a poly bag for the album cover and a poly line sleeve to protect your 180g vinyl album.

    After The Rain

    The second of two electric-blues albums released on Chess Records and Cadet Concept imprint in the late 60s, Muddy Waters' After the Rain has achieved cult-like status amongst blues fans in the years since his death in 1983. After taking a backlash from critics with first attempt at adopting psychedelic influences on Electric Mud, Muddy made adjustments for the follow-up, despite keeping a majority of the same session players. This time, he toned down the psychedelic elements and put them in balance with his classic Chicago blues sound, and the results yield some vintage tracks that glow with fuzzy guitars and bass: I Am the Blues, Ramblin' Mind, Bottom of the Sea, and Blues Trouble. After being out of print for years, Get On Down is proud to present this rare classic from Muddy Waters pulled from the original masters and presented on LP.

    Couldn't Stand The Weather (Pure Pleasure) (Awaiting Repress)

    With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80's. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush, and Muddy Waters and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late '60s. For the next seven years, Stevie Ray was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll.

    Musicians:



    • Stevie Ray Vaughan (vocal, guitar)

    • Jimmie Vaughan (guitar)

    • Stan Harrison (tenor saxophone)

    • Tommy Shannon (bass)

    • Chris "Whipper" Layton, Fran Christina (drums)



    Format: 2LPs 33rpm / standard sleeve



    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.

    Joe Beard Direct-To-Disc

    Born and raised in Ashland, Mississippi, guitarist Joe Beard was surrounded by aspiring and veteran blues musicians. Matt Guitar Murphy and his brother Floyd were Beards childhood buddies and the ones who initially got him started on guitar.


    Beard moved to Rochester, New York in the mid-1950s and from time to time would visit one of his brothers in Chicago. He became enamored with the blues being played there and eventually sat in, both with John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters.


    In Rochester, he formed the Soul Brothers Six, playing bass and singing. He wouldnt perform in public on guitar until 1965. For most of the 1960s on through the 80s, Beard worked as an electrician by day and would occasionally play out at night and on weekends. He long ago gained a reputation as one of the best local players around Rochester and has sporadically been counted as one of the best nationally.


    In the 90s, Beard began recording with the Audioquest label, and those two releases have won major acclaim within the blues and audiophile communities.

    Import


    At Newport 1960 is a live album by Muddy Waters performed at Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, Rhode Island with his backing band, consisting of Otis Spann (piano, vocals), Pat Hare (guitar), James Cotton (harmonica), Andrew Stevens (bass) and Francis Clay (drums), in July 3. Water's performances across Europe in the 50s and at Newport helped popularize blues to broader audience, especially to whites. The album is often said to be one of the first blues live albums.


    The album was released in the US on November 15 that year, featuring eight songs, from I Got My Brand On You to Goodbye Newport Blues. Although At Newport 1960 never charted, it received critical acclaim and was influential for future bands.

    Mystic Pinball

    Acclaimed musician and songwriter John Hiatt returns with Mystic Pinball which will be released on New West Records. Called " one of rock's most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years" by the Los Angeles Times, Hiatt continues to write brilliant character studies, twisting entertaining storylines with cunning lyrics and wry humor including "We're Alright Now," the first single from Mystic Pinball.


    For Mystic Pinball, his 21st studio album, Hiatt turned to producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley (Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa.) Shirley also produced Hiatt's highly praised Dirty Jeans And Mudslide Hymns, which the New York Times declared was " his best since 1995." Hiatt relies on the exceptional musical skills of Doug Lancio (electric guitar, mandolin, Dobro), Kenneth Blevins (drums and percussion) and Patrick O'Hearn (bass) to play with him on the record.


    John Hiatt's career as a performer and songwriter has spanned more than 30 years and everyone from Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bonnie Raitt and Iggy Pop has covered his work. Hiatt began his solo career with the 1974 album Hangin' Around the Observatory. His landmark 1987 release Bring The Family, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, was his first album to chart in the U.S. 2000's Crossing Muddy Waters was called "The most natural and relaxed John Hiatt album in years," by All Music Guide. In 2008, Hiatt released Same Old Man, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was honored by the Americana Music Association with their prestigious "Lifetime Achievement in Songwriting Award."


    Critical acclaim continued for The Open Road (2010) with The Boston Herald praising "Hiatt knocks together a rocking, full-throttle road record that in its tone, toughness and mix of blues, R&B and country harkens back to his landmark Bring the Family" while the Associated Press proclaimed "Hiatt remains at the top of his game" in reference to Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns (2011).

    Chuck Berry's Landmark First Album - Includes 3 Bonus Tracks


    First Time Exclusive Audiophile Vinyl And Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records' Mono Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Chuck Berry is an American original. There will never be another Chuck Berry, nor anyone in the music industry who could influence
    generations upon generations of aspiring rock 'n rollers like Chuck has.


    Celebrating six decades in the music business, this East St. Louis native initially captivated millions of kids in the fifties with his first
    recordings like Maybellene and Roll Over Beethoven. He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar licks, poetic lyrics and dynamic
    presence on the stage.


    Introduced to Chess Records by fellow blues rocker Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry hit a goldmine immediately with his arsenal of tunes
    that he presented to Phil and Leonard Chess. These great songs culminated into a handful of top charting singles which led to his first
    legendary album After School Session.


    Kicking things off with one of the monumental rock and roll records of all time School Day (Ring Ring Goes The Bell), Chuck Berry
    roars through a bevy of 11 more home runs which made this one of the most important and emulated albums of all time. The album features
    classic gems like Brown Eyed Handsome Man, Too Much Monkey Business, Havana Moon and No Money Down. Noted for his stellar guitar
    work, pretty much introducing the turnaround riff to a whole new generation of guitar players, After School Session was truly a primer for a
    ton of rock and blues artists for years like Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Johnny Winter, The Animals and
    The Yardbirds.


    Chuck Berry was more than a rock 'n roll genius. He was a natural poet. He could rhyme. He could compose lyrically two and three
    minute musical stories about the everyday man and woman, about the struggles of being a teenager, about romance, about cars, about
    faraway places, about dancing, and most notably about rock 'n rollin.'


    His unconventional approach to music was unlike that of anyone before him. He opened the doors for millions of music fans around
    the world to enjoy rock and blues, making him one of the first pioneers of the popular recording business that we all enjoy to this day.
    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chuck Berry and the Chess Records' arsenal of fine recordings. That is why
    we are so very proud to announce The Chuck Berry/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his monumental first album After
    School Session - The Deluxe Anniversary Edition.


    Mastered by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Winter) for the first time on audiophile vinyl from the Chess
    monophonic tapes, Chuck Berry's After School Session now features 3 sensational bonus tracks including his first Chess singles Maybellene,
    You Can't Catch Me and Thirty Days (To Come Back Home).


    To celebrate Chuck Berry's six decades in the music business, we further enhance this limited anniversary edition with a stunning
    gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as a classic inside gatefold photo of Chuck wailing on his Gibson guitar.
