Paul Butterfield Blues BandWhen you count out the original Blues men from the United States, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band is arguably the finest example of raw Blues essence. With white harmonica player Butterfield at the center, the racially integrated group started as one of the first authentic and genuine Blues combos. They were the real deal - and paved the way for the upcoming Blues music movement in a in time when hit charts were still separated by colour of skin.
Their first and eponymous album from 1965 contains a mix of electric Chicago style Blues and Rock & Roll: raw, brazen and powerful, beautifully weaved together by Butterfields harmonica and scorching vocals. And more to their credit: the Paul Butterfield Blues Band single-handedly helped introduce more white listeners to the band's influences, such as Muddy Waters and B.B. King.1. Born In Chicago

Golden Butter: The Best Of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
The First Time Audiophile Vinyl 40th Anniversary Presentation Of Their Legendary Elektra Recordings
Mastered Impeccably From The Original Elektra Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios & At Capitol Records With Ron McMaster
Features The Original Gatefold Cover Album Art & Essay by Tony Glover
Along with fellow superstars Jefferson Airplane, Steve Miller Band and The Grateful Dead, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was one of the first powerhouse rock acts of the sixties. With their phenomenal brand of Chicago blues music unlike any band before or after them, they helped to usher in the progressive underground rock movement.
With its core line-up of Paul Butterfield (harmonica/lead vocalist), Mike Bloomfield (guitar), Elvin Bishop (guitar), Sam Lay(drums), Mark Nataflin (keyboards) and Jerome Arnold (bass), this amazing band truly delivered many legendary blues and rock recordings during their successful reign at Elektra Records.
Blues masterpieces of the era still resonate today as Paul Butterfield and Co. foretold with their classic signature tunes like Born In Chicago, Look Over Yonders Wall, Mellow Down Easy and the mammoth blues prog-rocker East West. With the superstar talents that made up this band over the years, it was not uncommon to hear radio stations play entire sides of their revolutionary albums during the dawn of FM and underground radio.
Later albums would reveal even further extensions of the blues rock genre with classic renditions like Marvin Gaye's One More Heartache, Michael Nesmith's Mary Mary, plus more of their own prolific standards like Last Hope's Gone, Morning Blues and of course their Woodstock 1969 anthem Love March.
Elektra awarded The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and their huge fan base with a very extensive and amazing "Greatest Hits" package called Golden Butter back in 1972. Right from the start you get a healthy serving from their first monster release The Paul Butterfield Blues along with more solid tunes from other fine albums like East West, The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw, In My Own Dream, Live and Keep On Movin'.
Out of print on vinyl for many years, it is with great pride and honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band classic Golden Butter - The Best Of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band on Friday Music.
As a first installment in the Paul Butterfield/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this amazing album features 18 of their most important songs from their legendary albums from1965 through 1973. From the early blues rock sounds of Shake Your Money-Maker and the lengthy live epic Driftin' and Driftin' to later day album radio favorites like Blind Leading the Blind, One More Mile and the pivotal Willie Dixon favorite Spoonful, this album truly shows the relevance and importance of this sorely missed iconic band.
Mastered impeccably from the original Elektra Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records with Ron McMaster, this super limited edition album also boasts the original gatefold cover album art and wonderful essay by Tony Glover, not seen in years!
The two HQ vinyl LP's are also protected by polylined sleeves as well as a polybag to help keep the album cover and albums in great condition for your blues collection.

Keep On MovingOne of the last truly fine outings by the band that started the avalanche of electric blues outfits is now available as a high-definition, exact-replica LP!
The Butterfield Blues Band had reloaded by the time 1969's Keep on Moving was released on Elektra Records. Paul Butterfield startled the world with the addition of guitarist Buzzy Feiten, a man whose take-no-prisoners style turned out to be a muscular combination of the sound of his two predecessors, Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop. Led by Butterfield wailing on lead vocals and his patented Southside of Chicago harmonica licks, the band sounded as powerful as ever with a new horn section that included David Sanborn on alto sax, Gene Dinwiddie on tenor and Keith Johnson on trumpet. It wouldn't last forever, but Paul Butterfield proved with Keep on Moving he had plenty of Hi-Octane gas left in the tank, and Keep on Moving fired on all cylinders.1. Love March

Live In New York 1970This double LP, recorded in December 1970 was recorded and broadcast from A&R Studios in New York City in front of a live audience. The lineup is mostly the same as the one that recorded the Elektra label live album the previous March at the Troubadour in Los Angeles with Paul Butterfield on vocals and harmonica, David Sanborn on alto sax, Gene Dinwiddie on soprano sax, Trevor Lawrence on baritone sax, Steve Madaio on trumpet, Ralph Wash on guitar, Rod Hicks on bass guitar, and Dennis Whitted on drums.
While there is little doubt that the Butterfield Blues Band took a hit when Mike Bloomfield left, the group compensated by shifting musical direction, adding a horn section. Every new album represented a progression in the blues idiom, synthesizing and rearranging elements of blues, soul, rock, and jazz into something new and exciting.LP 1

SPCO-PUR-79232HxCharley Musselwhite's Southside Blues Band
Stand Back (Pure Pleasure)Vanguard may have spelled his name wrong (he prefers Charlie or Charles), but the word was out as soon as this solo debut was released: Here was a harpist every bit as authentic, as emotional, in some ways as adventuresome, as Paul Butterfield. Similarly leading a Chicago band with a veteran Black rhythm section (Fred Below on drums, Bob Anderson on bass) and rock-influenced soloists (keyboardist Barry Goldberg, guitarist Harvey Mandel), Musselwhite played with a depth that belied his age - only 22 when this was cut! His gruff vocals were considerably more affected than they would become later (clearer, more relaxed), but his renditions of Help Me, Early in the Morning, and his own Strange Land stand the test of time. He let his harmonica speak even more authoritatively on instrumentals like 39th and Indiana (essentially It Hurts Me Too sans lyrics) and Cha Cha the Blues, and his version of jazz arranger Duke Pearson's gospel-tinged Cristo Redentor has become his signature song - associated with Musselwhite probably more so than with trumpeter Donald Byrd, who originally recorded the song for Blue Note. Goldberg is in fine form (particularly on organ), but Mandel's snakey, stuttering style really stands out - notably on Help Me, his quirky original 4 P.M., and Chicken Shack, where he truly makes you think your record is skipping

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.1. Baby Will You Please Help Me

The Live Adventures Of Mike Bloomfield and Al KooperIn the wake of the success of their seminal 1968 Super Session release, blues-steeped guitar hero Mike Bloomfield (Butterfield Blues Band and Electric Flag) and multi-talented keyboardist/singer Al Kooper (Blues Project and Blood, Sweat & Tears) teamed up again for a historic series of joint performances as San Francisco's legendary Fillmore West, which are documented on The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper.
The resulting live album, culled from three nights' worth of shows and released in 1969, is a powerful testament to the formidable musical chemistry of these two rock legends, whose collaboration began when they played on Bob Dylan's classic Highway 61 Revisited. The Fillmore performances bring out the best in both musicians, who stretch out on assortment of tunes, including the Kooper/Bloomfield original Her Holy Modal Highness, Paul Simon's The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy), The Band's The Weight, Booker T. and the MGs' Green Onions and Albert King's Don't Throw Your Love on Me So Strong, which features a rare Bloomfield vocal. The album also features guest appearances by Elvin Bishop and Carlos Santana.
Unavailable in its original format for decades, The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper has been meticulously restored to its original double-LP form for this vinyl reissue, using Sundazed's exacting technical and aesthetic standards. The album is pressed on high-quality, high-definition vinyl, and duplicates the album's original gatefold cover art, including legendary artist Norman Rockwell's iconic cover painting of Bloomfield and Kooper.1.

RuntTODD RUNDGREN'S DEBUT MASTERWORK!!!!
First Time Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray from the original Bearsville Records tapes
As founding member of the premiere late sixties power pop rockers Nazz, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter
and producer Todd Rundgren was barely in his 20's when he began his long solo journey with success as one of the music
industry's most prolific and celebrated rock artists.
His first solo album Runt showed a dazzling array of songs, displaying not only his rock and roll side but ventures into
jazz, R&B, eastern and blues. With help from his friends Hunt and Tony Sales, the power trio nailed one of the finest albums
of the classic rock era and also catapulted Todd Rundren's marquee as a singer/songwriter with his smash hit single We
Gotta Get You A Woman.
Ever the rock journeyman, Todd Rundgren had already produced, mixed or played on albums by legendary recording
artists like The Band and Paul Butterfield. Always called on to bring his musical genius for others, his initial hit recordings
that make up the Runt album show how versatile and important the artist is. Check out his burning guitar riffs on album
opener Broke Down And Busted or the gritty country blues feel of Once Burned, plus the New York funk/jazz of I'm In The
Clique, three fan favorites that truly have stood the test of time.
Known to write a hit ballad more than a few times in his career, Todd goes on record early here with one of his finest
tracks ever with his brilliant Believe In Me. Followed closely by his masterpiece We Gotta Get You A Woman, even more pop
sounds continue with his classic medley Baby Let's Swing/The Last Thing You Said/Don't Tie My Hands, and the haunting
Beach Boys/Gregorian Chant feel of There Are No Words.
This amazing album hasn't been on vinyl for several decades that is until now Friday Music is honored to announce
for the first time ever on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, the classic Todd Rundgren debut masterwork Runt. As a first installment
in our career spanning Todd Rundgren Friday Music180 Gram Audiophile Series, this limited edition album will also be presented for a short time in a first time gatefold cover which will feature the original inner sleeve artwork, not seen in decades.
Mastered from the authorized original Bearsville Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Todd Rundgren, Cheap Trick, Hall
& Oates) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, the Runt album will be one of the most anticipated audiophile albums
released this year.

What's Shakin'In the musically explosive '60s, Elektra Records, like most of their contemporaries, was diligently searching for the next big thing. Toward this pursuit, they often recorded demo sessions of promising artists, signing some and leaving others to find different label homes. In 1966, the label collected some of the best of these demos and compiled them for the Whats Shakin album. It contains the first four tracks recorded by the just-formed Lovin Spoonful, who wound up creating a series of hit albums and singles for Kama Sutra. Notably, the album also contains two songs by Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse, recorded immediately prior to the formation of Cream. Rounding out the compilations are contributions from Al Kooper and Elektra labelmates Tom Rush and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.
News of the albums release spread quickly, making it a big hit on the nascent underground music scene. Sundazed is proud to make these ultra-rare tracks available again for todays music enthusiasts. Sourced from the original analog master tapes, pressed on high-definition vinyl and packaged with original liner notes and photo inserts, this album belongs in the collections of discerning music fans everywhere.1.LOVIN' SPOONFUL: Good Time Music
