    Includes New 2017 Liner Notes From Nelson

    Matthew and Gunnar Nelson's debut smash LP After The Rain will always be looked upon as one of the finest rock albums ever to be released in the 1990's. Fueled by a huge #1 single with (Can't Live Without Your) Love And Affection, the twins of rock legend Ricky Nelson truly proved that the apple did not fall too far from the tree, as success followed the duo for over two decades, making this LP and band synonymous with a sound and style uniquely their own.

    After The Rain showcases their amazing talents and skills in the studio setting, with brilliant guitar and bass artistry, strong hard rock vocals, and popular songwriting expertise. Featuring a treasure trove of AOR, Top 40 and MTV era smash hits like More Than Ever, Only Time Will Tell and the stellar title track After The Rain, Nelson truly delivered the goods with this fine debut album.

    Over two decades later, these tunes continue to resonate as Nelson continually tours as Nelson along with their critically acclaimed tribute tours to their late rock and roll dad Ricky Nelson. The LP was released during the CD era, and was pretty much hard to find on vinyl since then ..until now!

    Friday Music is very pleased to announce the first time 180 Gram audiophile vinyl release of After The Rain by Nelson. Impeccably remastered by Joe Reagoso and Nelson at Friday Music and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA, this debut rock classic will truly be one of the more anticipated vinyl releases in quite some time.

    French icon and national treasure Serge Gainsbourg is no stranger to sexual proclivities, and with his 1971 album Histoire De Melody Nelson he weaved an erotic tale as seductive today as the day it was released. Inspired by actress and amour Jane Birkin and featuring the deft touch of arranger/conductor and co-conspirator Jean-Claude Vannier (LEnfant Assassins Des Mouches), not to mention a tight hand picked crew of top shelf U.K. session musicians, Histoire De Melody Nelson is an absolute masterpiece and an essential album for the discerning music lover.

    Although the accent is on ballads, several of the songs are taken at medium tempos and she swings throughout. Highlights include "Georgia on My Mind," "The Very Thought of You, "It's a Pity to Say Goodnight," "Darn That Dream" and "Body and Soul."

    All My Favorite Singers Are Willie Nelson

    Astral Swan's All My Favorite Singers Are Willie Nelson is a collection of stark psychedelic folk from the unfiltered neuroses of Calgary's Matthew Swann. Songs steeped in universal anguish, marveling at the world's knack for enterprise and cannibalism, come across instead as subtle, reassuring lullabies. These are quiet, relatable anthems for the outsider set, balancing gentle melodies on Swann's self-obsession with moral fallibility. On first single "Beginning Of The End", Swann delves into the album's various drug states in his sweetly apprehensive tone, a lowly guitar dancing loosely with intoxicated children, asking: "Who told the kids in the yard that they're mostly dust? Now they just stay drunk. Keep getting more fucked up".


    Equally inspired by serene 60's folk, 80's no-wave alienation, and the insouciance of 90's grunge, Astral Swans' music is spacious yet constrained, hauntingly personal and oddly sincere. The skeletal "Let Their Faces All Blur Out" races softly with the punk rock abandon of early Sonic Youth and Eric's Trip; "What Calms You Down, Freaks Me Out" bears the ominous pleasance of Syd Barrett, Arthur Russell, Nick Drake, and fellow Calgarian Chad VanGaalen. More structured than Swann's Extra Happy Ghost!!! project (produced by VanGaalen), this album's experimental spirit denies the haphazard "singer-songwriter" label that some might attach to Astral Swans.


    Set for release on Dan Mangan's Madic Records, these twelve songs lavish in Swann's startlingly sardonic reflections, in his own words, "confronting our strange ways of experiencing personhood, in the moral gorge between ideals and inadequacies". Tracked live in Swann's living room, and later embellished in an old Calgary warehouse with local experimental/improv mainstay Brad Hawkins (Ghostkeeper), All My Favorite Singers Are Willie Nelson is flawed if not for its air of accidental perfection, normalizing existential struggle with rhythm and harmony, a natural marriage of the sweet to the acrid.

    1. There Are Ways To Get What You Want
    2. Beginning Of The End
    3. Let Their Faces All Blur Out
    4. Please Don't Leave Me Strange

    Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real (Pre-Order)

    Since their formation as teenagers 10 years ago, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have quietly developed into one of America's most dazzling new live acts, playing hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world, attracting a deeply devoted underground following.

    Still, with a bounty of invaluable experience under their belts, nothing foretold the artistic leap of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real their new, self-titled album, a mesmerizing, emotionally genuine, endlessly rewarding work of cosmic country soul set for release via Fantasy Records.

    Recorded at The Village Studios in West Los Angeles Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real was produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer) and features the band's new six-piece line-up: Lukas Nelson (guitar, vocals), Tato Melgar (percussion), Anthony LoGerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass, vocals) along with new members Jesse Siebenberg (steel guitars, Farfisa organ, vocals) and Alberto Bof (piano, Wurlitzer, B3). Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the indie-pop group Lucius contribute background vocals on five tracks evoking Exile on Main St.'s ecstatic, gospel-rooted harmonies, and Lady Gaga added stirring background vocals to Carolina and Find Yourself. Elsewhere, the lilting, Glen Campbell inspired gem, Just Outside of Austin features a guitar solo from Lukas' dad, country music icon Willie Nelson, and piano from his 86-year-old Aunt Bobbi.

    The new album includes 12 Lukas Nelson originals that draw on his country and rock lineage including literate Texas songsmiths like his father and 'uncles' Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings, along with the enduring influence of J.J. Cale, The Band, Clapton-era Delaney & Bonnie and of course, his mentor Neil Young.

    Young, an essential member of the POTR family, met the band after he caught them at Farm Aid several years back. Neil got in touch after that, and we started talking by email, Lukas recounts. Eventually, he asked us to record with him. We fell in love with each other musically, one thing led to another and we became Neil's band.

    I knew I had a lot of good songs that transcended the cultural boundaries between rock & roll and country, Lukas says of his vision for the album. We owe a lot to Neil; we made this record after coming off the road with him for two years. Neil's been mentoring us, and we've been absorbing that energy, and I think it shows. We got acclimated to a different level of artistic expression. I wanted to get the songs as pure as they could be. We've grown.

    Set Me Down on a Cloud, the soulful, country-rock epic that opens the album features Lucious' angelic background vocals and Lukas' lovely, lyrical guitar solo as the band stretches out behind him. Forget About Georgia unfolds to a Layla-like outpouring of yearning, as it vividly retraces the turbulent, bittersweet final stages of a doomed love affair. Lukas delivers a full-throttle vocal on the closing track, If I Started Over, a Roy Orbison-inspired rumination of tender devotion. The R&B grind of Find Yourself is a particular triumph as Lukas and Lady Gaga weave an impassioned, romantic ultimatum.

    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso & Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Willie Hugh Nelson is an American musician, singer, songwriter, author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana.

    I'm Not Afraid

    "When people hear John Mark Nelson's music for the first time, there'soften a sense of disbelief. With arrangements that recall the work of veteran songwriters, the 19-year-old Minnesota native has been recording
    sophisticated compositions since he was 14." - NPR, Jon Schober (2013)


    The past may be prologue, but for John Mark Nelson, the present is something else entirely: a gateway into a new era of life and the new sound that defines his upcoming album, I'm Not Afraid. Having released two critically lauded albums of melodic, lilting folk songs the ages of 17 and 19, Nelson, now 21, is set to take
    listeners on a leap forward into a new sonic landscape of propulsive rhythms and bright, complex instrumental arrangements. From the irresistible bounce and frustrated romance of the first single, "Dream Last Night," to the clap-along amble of "Broken" and the timeless, elegant sweep of "I Won't Win (If I Let You In)," I'm Not
    Afraid defies genre and demands attention. As a document of what Nelson calls "a very new, very different season of life," it positions him as one of the most exciting young songwriters and multi-instrumentalists
    of his generation.

    First Time Audiophile Blue Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso - Manufactured At R.T.I.


    Willie Nelson is a musical phenomenon and an American icon.
    His legendary musical career began in the 50's, followed with a
    plethora of hit songs written for the likes of Ray Price, Patsy Cline
    and Roy Orbison, and then his own six decade long recording career
    in the country, rock, pop, adult, and even jazz genres, sharing his
    legendary vocal, guitar and songwriting persona for millions of fans
    worldwide.


    With 1979's Pretty Paper Lp, Willie Nelson teams up with another
    superstar producer/keyboardist Booker T. Jones (Booker T. & The
    MG's) creating one of the most successful holiday top charting hit
    albums of all time. The Lp features Willie's stellar interpretations of
    both popular and inspirational favorites like definitive hit versions
    of his self-penned melancholy smash title track Pretty Paper, plus
    traditionals like Winter Wonderland, Blue Christmas and White
    Christmas. His impressive readings of spirit-filled favorites like Silent
    Night, Holy Night and O Little Town Of Bethlehem truly made the
    Pretty Paper Lp a groundbreaking effort for this legendary artist.


    This fine album has been out of print for decades on vinyl, and
    it is our honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
    presentation of Pretty Paper by the legendary Willie Nelson on Friday
    Music. This limited edition audiophile masterpiece is now impeccably
    mastered by Joe Reagoso and also for a very limited time is pressed
    by R.T.I. on translucent Blue Vinyl for the holidays, and features from
    the original LP artwork not seen in years, in a first time gatefold
    presentation, featuring full color photos of Willie Nelson from the
    Columbia Records archives.

    Blues And The Abstract Truth

    As Oliver Nelson is known primarily as a big band leader and arranger, he is lesser known as a saxophonist and organizer of small ensembles. Blues And The Abstract Truth is his triumph as a musician for the aspects of not only defining the sound of an era with his all-time classic "Stolen Moments," but on this recording, assembling one of the most potent modern jazz sextets ever. Lead trumpeter Freddie Hubbard is at his peak of performance, while alto saxophonists Nelson and Eric Dolphy (Nelson doubling on tenor) team to for an unlikely union that was simmered to perfection. Bill Evans (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and Roy Haynes (drums) can do no wrong as a rhythm section. 


    "With Analogue Productions' new 45 rpm vinyl pressing of Oliver Nelson's The Blues and the Abstract Truth, we finally have a reissue of this great album that's worth buying...A few 'audiophile' reissues have come out over the years, in vinyl and aluminum, but this is the first that comes close to the wondrous sonics of the original black-and-orange pressing." - Fred Kaplan, Stereophile



    The Blues and the Abstract Truth is one of my favorite jazz recordings. What a group of heavy-weight performers! Besides Oliver Nelson on tenor sax, you've got the incomparable Bill Evans on piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Paul Chambers on bass, Roy Haynes on drums, and Eric Dolphy on flute and alto sax. This is the jazz equivalent of a super-group." - Jim Hannon, AVguide.com


    "...Let me cut to the chase here and recommend that you buy two copies - one to enjoy and the other to hold for resale, because some day Acoustic Sounds' license will run out and lots of jazz fans will be kicking themselves for not buying a copy. Kevin Gray has turned out a perfect remastering job and this is my choice for reissue of the year." Recording = 10/10; Music = 10/10 - Dennis Davis, Hi-Fi+, Issue 68

    Ricky Sings Again (On Sale)

    Ricky Nelson Ricky Sings Again on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Foundation-Establishing Rock n' Roll Album Includes Eternal Hit Lonesome Town


    A Late 1950s Vocal and Instrumental Touchstone: Nelson Comes Into His Own, Moving Away from Teen Pop and Towards Serious Rockabilly


    Stellar Backing Band Includes Elvis Presley Sideman/Guitarist James Burton and Backing Vocalists the Jordanaires


    Also Includes Top 10 Singles Believe What You Say, It's Late, and Never Be Anyone Else But You;


    Superb Sound: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Ricky Nelson will forever be identified with the ageless single Lonesome Town. The career-defining smash is included here, on a record that arguably remains the picturesque idol's peak moment, a 1959 set on which the singer moves away from teen pop and towards serious rock nl' roll and rockabilly on par with the likes of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. Loaded with material expressly written for Nelson as well as tunes penned by Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, and featuring an all-star session musician band, Ricky Sings Again is a foundation-building 1950s album.


    Exceeding the fidelity of any prior analog pressing and affording a warmth missing from Capitol's out-of-print digital reissues, this Silver Label LP, pressed at RTI and mastered on Mobile Fidelity's internationally acclaimed mastering system, teems with detail, presence, dynamics, and authority. With help from his legendary father, Ozzie, Nelson enjoyed superb studio production, heard here in the form of balanced instrumentation, natural tonalities, wide and deep soundstages, and you-are-there vocals. Studio dimensions, too, come across with palpable body and precision. Since the record is a collection, some of the tracks are in mono, others in early stereo.


    Backed by a stellar band that includes Elvis Presley guitarist James Burton and in-demand studio bassist James Kirkland, Nelson delivers what remains a 1950s classic that stands up to everything recorded by his famous contemporaries. Burton mimics the sound of a train on One Of These Mornings, just one of the myriad tunes here on which the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member lays down fabulous lines and rockabilly licks that both shade and support the concise melodies. While largely recognized for the melancholy ballad Lonesome Town, one of four Top 10 singles on the set, Ricky Sings Again is as much about early rock n' roll and extraordinary singing. About that voice.


    Simultaneously tender and rollicking, innocent and mature, Nelson conveys a rainbow of emotions, pouring over country-flavored weepers and beat-driven rockabilly numbers with equal parts sensitivity, smoothness, and sincerity. A surfeit of heavenly background harmonies and innovative guitar-led breaks make masterpieces out of upbeat offerings such as You Tear Me Up as well as slow-dance invitations like Old Enough to Love. Add the Jordanaires on back-up vocals, and there's something for everyone here.


    No matter the performance, Nelson demonstrates time and again on Ricky Sings Again why he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the institution's second year of existence, and why, even more so than Elvis during 1958-59, he was the period's leading singles artist.

    To All The Girls...

    Decades of heartfelt performances and compositions in popular music have long solidified Willie's reputation as one of country's greatest romantics. To All The Girls... continues Nelson's musicial relationships with some of the most talented women in country, pop, and soul.


    Among the centerpieces of To All The Girls... is the emotional duet with Dolly Parton, From Here To The Moon and Back, a song Parton wrote for the 2012 motion picture Joyful Noise. Willie also tackles the Bill Withers' classic Grandma's Hands with Mavis Staples, duets with Sheryl Crow on The Great American Songbook selection Far Away Places, and brings a new shade to his self penned classic Always On My Mind with Carrie Underwood.


    Willie is also joined by familiar contemporaries including Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Norah Jones and Rosanne Cash. To All The Girls... reunites Willie with producer Buddy Cannon, who worked with Willie on his most recent successful releases, Heroes and Let's Face The Music And Dance.


    Having turned 80 years old in April, Willie Nelson has no intentions of riding off into the sunset. Since signing to Legacy Recordings, Nelson has been steadily recording an releasing albums with the same rough-and-ready spirit of his timeless recordsing for RCA and Columbia Records. Heroes was praised by Uncut for being as spirited as it is poignant. Of 2013's Let's Face The Music And Dance, Paste cheered for his strongest and most engaged performances in a decade.

    Phases and Stages

    The legendary career of Texas-born music icon Willie Nelson has spanned six decades and stands as one of contemporary music's greatest legacies. Nelson first rose to fame as a Nashville-based songwriter, penning many now timeless standards including Crazy, a top hit for Patsy Cline. Feeling constrained by the Nashville music establishment, Willie relocated to Austin in the early 70s, where the melding of rock and country audiences made a huge impression on him. He began fusing folk and roots rock with a rebellious outlaw country flavor, inventing an authentic, stripped-down sound that remains vastly influential to this day. At this pivotal point in his artistic evolution, Nelson signed to Atlantic Records, delivering two signature albums revered as all-time masterpieces of his extensive repertoire, Shotgun Willie and Phases And Stages.


    Phases And Stages is the first of many albums on which Willie strings songs together to tell a single story. The first half of the album recounts a break-up from the woman's point of view; the second half tells the same story, but from the man's perspective. Among the many outstanding tracks on this classic album are Sister's Coming Home, I Still Can't Believe You're Gone and Pretend I Never Happened.

    2. Phases and Stages (Theme)/Walkin'
    3. Pretend I Never Happened

    Shotgun Willie

    Transferring his allegiance to Atlantic (where he would record two remarkable albums that would get him kicked off the label), Willie Nelson offered his finest record to date for his debut -- possibly his finest album ever. Shotgun Willie encapsulates Willie's world view and music, finding him at a peak as a composer, interpreter, and performer. This is laid-back, deceptively complex music, equal parts country, rock attitude, jazz musicianship, and troubadour storytelling.


    Nelson blurs the lines between his own tunes and covers to the point that Whiskey River, this record's best-known song, seems thoroughly original, yet it was written by Johnny Bush and Paul Stroud. This, along with two songs apiece by Leon Russell and Bob Wills, provides context for his originals, with Shotgun Willie becoming a musical autobiography, offering not only insights into his musicality (witness how he slows down Stay All Night [Stay a Little Longer] to a slow shuffle) but, seemingly, into himself (most notably on the title track and the wonderful, funny travelogue Devil in a Sleepin' Bag). Nelson wasn't just at a peak of performing here -- he also wrote some of his greatest songs, highlighted not just by the previously mentioned tunes but also by the lovely slow waltz Slow Down Old World and Sad Songs and Waltzes. All of it adds up to possibly the finest record in a career filled with hits and highlights.

    Band of Brothers

    IN A CELEBRATED CAREER
    that's extended over a half century,
    Willie Nelson is immediately recognizable as one of our nation's most
    celebrated singer-songwriters. After almost two decades, he's putting both of
    those unique talents together with an
    all-new album of predominantly original
    material, titled, Band Of Brothers.


    Willie Nelson's musical gifts ring as
    true as ever, and they're brilliantly
    captured on this brand new album. 14
    new recordings, nine of which feature
    new music and lyrics written by Willie,
    comprise in one of his most personal
    albums in years. The man who penned
    elegant country standards from "Crazy"
    to "Funny How Time Slips Away" is
    in rare form with deeply introspective
    tracks including "The Wall" and "Send
    Me A Picture." Elsewhere, songs like
    the rollicking "Wives And Girlfriends"
    and "Used To Her" prove his continued
    gift for wit and wisdom when it comes
    to affairs of the heart. Willie also
    delivers signature interpretations of
    Vince Gill's "Whenever You Come
    Around", Billy Joe Shaver's "The Git
    Go" (a duet with Jamey Johnson)
    and Billy Anderson's aptly-titled
    "Songwriter". Buddy Cannon returns
    as producer and co-writer, having
    collaborated with Willie on all four of
    his albums for Legacy.


    Band Of Brothers comes hot on
    the heels of a whirlwind of activity
    surrounding the legendary performer,
    already a Lifetime Achievement
    Grammy Award winner, a Kennedy
    Center honoree and one of the rst
    recipients of a lifetime achievement
    award from the National Academy
    of Popular Music. Nelson, whose
    association with the Sony Music family
    goes back to his 1964 signing to RCA
    Records and an extraordinary stint with
    Columbia Records from 1975 to 1993,
    signed to Legacy Recordings in 2012,
    releasing the acclaimed Heroes that
    same year, followed by Let's Face The
    Music And Dance (2013), a collection
    of pop, jazz and country standards.
    To All The Girls..., a collection of new
    duets with eighteen female duet
    partners, was released in October
    2013, becoming Nelson's first Top 10
    placement on the pop charts in over
    30 years. Having turned 80 last year,
    Willie shows no signs of slowdown,
    continuing to tour and record at the
    pace of a man half his age.
