    A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector

    Ranked 142/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    In 1963, visionary producer Phil Spector, then at the peak of his creativity and cultural influence, created one of the first and still one of the greatest rock n roll Christmas albums. Using the artist roster of his Philles label the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love and Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeansand the legendary studio musicians of the Wrecking Crew, Spector applied his fabled Wall of Sound to a set of Christmas pop standards and holiday-themed originals.


    The resulting album brilliantly merges the holiday spirit with the singular sonic uplift of the Spector sound. Highlights include the Ronettes bubbly reworkings of Sleigh Ride, Frosty the Snowman and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, the Crystals upbeat renditions of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Darlene Loves soulful readings of Winter Wonderland, White Christmas and the Ellie Greenwich/Jeff Barry/Phil Spector composition Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). A Christmas Gift for You concludes with a rare on-mike appearance by Spector himself, delivering a spoken holiday message to listeners.


    A Christmas Gift for You originally had the misfortune of being released on November 22, 1963, the same day as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and was not a major commercial success. In the years since, however, it has been embraced as a beloved pop-culture touchstone, with many of its tracks becoming holiday airplay favorites. Longtime Spector fan Brian Wilson has named it as his all-time favorite LP. The albums influence has also been reflected in cover versions by contemporary artists. Bruce Springsteen based his interpretation of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town on the Crystals Spectorized version, while U2 closely followed Darlene Loves original when covering Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).

    He's A Rebel

    Although it was assembled quickly in 1963 to take advantage of the chart success of its eponymous title anthem, the Crystals' second album is a near-perfect summation of this seminal girl group's effortless appeal and the surging majesty of Phil Spector's production genius. Between the group's winsome vocals, the massed muscle of Spector's legendary studio band the Wrecking Crew, and the stellar songwriting of such Brill Building pros as Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil and Doc Pomus, He's A Rebel is one of the most beloved items in the Philles label catalog.


    While most listeners didn't know it at the time, the Gene Pitney-penned He's A Rebel was actually recorded by Darlene Love and her studio group the Blossoms, and released under the Crystals' name. Love also takes the lead on the effervescent hit He's Sure the Boy I Love. Under any name, however, these are among the most thrilling items in the Spector canon.


    Along with such memorable early Crystals classics as Uptown, There's No Other (Like My Baby) and Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby, He's A Rebel also features the controversial Goffin/King composition He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss). Originally released as a single in 1962, the song's emotionally raw subject matter scared off radio programmers, and Spector quickly had it withdrawn from release. In the years since, the song has gained near-mythical status, and its inclusion here is a handy reminder of the power of Spector's singular artistry.

    Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes

    The Ronettes were a '60s girl group from New York City featuring the sisters Veronica and Estelle Bennett and their cousin Nedra Talley. Produced by world famous Wall Of Sound inventor Phil Spector, their legacy include all time favourites like Be My Baby, Baby, I Love You, (The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up and Walking in the Rain, the latter winning a Grammy award in 1965. Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes (featuring Veronica) is the girl group's only studio album, and received a place in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The group were even inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2004.

    Colored Vinyl


    The fifth studio album by the American punk rock band The Ramones. It was released on February 4, 1980 and was produced by Phil Spector. After Spector became interested in the band, he offered to produce their next record. Vocalist Joey Ramone was an avid fan of Spector's early work, including albums by many girl groups and Let It Be by The Beatles. As an attempt at a Top 40 record and mainstream acceptance, the songs are more produced and longer in duration, averaging around three minutes.

    Twist Uptown

    The Crystals' first LP Twist Uptown, originally released in the summer of 1962, occupies an important position in Phil Spector's remarkable body of work. As the first full album produced by Spector and the first LP to be released on his legendary Philles label, it's a crucial cornerstone in the building of the fabled Wall of Sound. Beyond its historic significance, though, Twist Uptown retains a timeless resonance, thanks to Spector's seminal studio wizardry and the Crystals' sweet-but-streetwise vocal magic.


    The New York-based Crystals, all of whom were still in their teens at the time, were handpicked by Spector as the first act signed to Philles, and the first performers to receive the full-on Wall of Sound studio treatment. The quintet quickly scored major successes with their Spector-produced singles There's No Other (Like My Baby) and Uptown. The latter, penned by Brill building stalwarts Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, also made history for introducing a new level of gritty social realism to pop.


    Indeed, Twist Uptown perfectly embodies the combination of yearning innocence and worldlier emotions that would come to define Spector's greatest work. In addition to the aforementioned classics and the minor hit Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby, the album features such lesser-known girl-group gems as I Love You Eddie, Please Hurt Me, What A Nice Way to Turn Seventeen and the one-of-a-kind oddity Frankenstein Twist, along with an early version On Broadway, actually recorded before the Drifters' reworked hit version, and an upbeat take on the Carla Thomas chestnut Gee Whiz.

    Shut Down Vol 2 (Mono)

    33 1/3 RPM Mono Mixes Created Under Brian Wilson's Supervision


    Audio Production - Mark Linett


    For Brother Records - Elliott Lott


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio, Most From The Original Master Tapes Or Best Sources Available


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    To meet the standards of Analogue Productions, our Beach Boys album reissues had a mission to achieve: Present the band's music the way that Brian Wilson - famed co-founder, songwriter and arranger - intended. Mono mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California crew rose to fame! And we've got 'em!


    For the early part of the Beach Boys career, all of their singles were mixed and mastered and released only in the mono format - they didn't release a single in stereo until 1968. In those days, hits were made on AM radio in mono. And the mono of those times worked well for Wilson, who suffers from partial deafness. Still, apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today! was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.


    The stereo editions of Surfin' USA, Surfer Girl, Little Deuce Coupe, Shut Down Vol. 2, All Summer Long, Beach Boys Christmas Album and Beach Boys Concert were all mixed in stereo by their own preferred engineer, Chuck Britz, ostensibly under the group's supervision.


    Brian may or may not have been present for those mixing sessions - evidence suggests that he trusted Chuck's skills enough to let him prepare those mixes on his own - but the group held onto their multitrack tapes and delivered stereo masters to Capitol, rather than allowing Capitol to prepare their own stereo versions. Later, when Brian was only delivering mono masters, Capitol would prepare the Duophonic pseudo stereo editions for the stereo market, says Alan Boyd, producer and Beach Boys' archivist.


    All of the newer stereo mixes on these remastered albums (The Beach Boys Today!, Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!), The Beach Boys' Party, Pet Sounds and Smiley Smile) were all done by Mark Linett on behalf of the Beach Boys.


    Still, bottom line, the mono mixes were where Brian Wilson paid intense attention, and the dedication paid off!


    We've taken 10 of the most classic, best-sounding Beach Boy titles ever and restored them to their mono glory!


    But there's no disputing that the close harmonies and one-of-a-kind rhythms of hits like "Surfer Girl," "In My Room," "Little Deuce Coupe" and more lend themselves naturally to stereo. So we've got your 2-channel needs covered with prime stereo mix versions as well.


    Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in old school Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time honored favorites shine brighter than the originals!


    The first Shut Down was a hugely successful Capitol Records Various Artists compilation LP that had included a pair of Beach Boys tracks. Whereas their previous album Little Deuce Coupe had been a full-on car themed concept album, the Beach Boys' Shut Down Volume 2 was pretty much evenly split between songs with car themes and various high school and summertime-themed tunes. The album sought to further the Beach Boys beyond its ironic sea-and-sun fetish (none but Dennis Wilson ever surfed) into the burgeoning hot-rod subculture. ... the high points remain nothing short of spectacular, including the Mike Love-propelled 'Fun, Fun, Fun,' Wilson's knowing nod to Phil Spector, 'Don't Worry Baby,' and the (hit) 'The Warmth of the Sun.' - Amazon.com

    Chain Gang Of Love

    Import

    Remastered


    'Chain Gang Of Love', originally released in August 2003, is The Raveonettes' first full length album after they debuted with the critically acclaimed 'Whip It On' mini album in 2002.


    Their sound has often been compared with that of the noisy and distorted Jesus And Mary Chain, while the Velvet Underground and even the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers are never far away either. The most noticeable difference in sound between the debut EP, which had all songs in B-flat minor, and this album is that here all songs are in B-flat major. The result is an album drenched in an uplifting fifties and sixties sound.


    Because of this wall of sound you might expect a Phil Spector production, but Sune Rose Wagner himself (one half of the Danish duo which is The Raveonettes) and Richard Gottehrer (producer for a.o. Blondie and The Go-Go's, and founder of Sire Records) were responsible for this remarkable and uplifting release.

    Their second full-length, and first release for Secretly Canadian, features instantly familiar melodies, rich harmonic color, expansively deft arrangements, and compositions that ebb, flow, and double back on themselves in cathartic synchronicity. It comes out feeling like the anthemic prog/gospel/psychedelic/kraut-tribal movie score that Ennio Morricone and Phil Spector never got around to collaborating on.

    Some Time In New York City

    Released in 1972, it is John Lennon's third post-Beatles solo album, fifth with Yoko Ono, and third with producer Phil Spector. This album found the Lennon's in an explicitly political phase; understandable as Lennon was neck-deep in his struggle to remain in the United States, a conflict rooted in his antiwar and anti establishment politics and the enmity of the Nixon administration.

    Introducing Darlene Love

    Guitar great/artist/producer/E Street Band icon Stevie Van Zandt arranged and produced the album, enlisting a star-studded cast to contribute songs to Love's return, including Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Van Zandt, Jim Webb, Linda Perry, Desmond Child, Joan Jett, and legendary songwriting team Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, who for more than five decades have reigned as one of the most influential songwriting duos in history.


    Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Darlene Love's album features all new recordings with her signature dynamic vocal delivery that the New York Times has hailed as "a thunderbolt voice embedded in the history of rock n' roll " and Rolling Stone has called "a rare instrument sturdy enough to vault over Phil Spector's 'Wall of Sound.'"


    Love's five-decade career spans some of the greatest signature moments in music. As depicted in the Academy Award and Grammy winning documentary "20 Feet From Stardom," Love became one of the most sought-after background singers in music history, recording with Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Dionne Warwick, The Righteous Brothers, and dozens of other vocal giants throughout her career. Her early work with iconic producer Phil Spector on songs such as the pioneering "He's A Rebel," "He's Sure The Boy I Love," and "Why Do Lover's Break Each Other's Hearts," would garner her legend status.

    Island Fire

    Maverick UK songstress Gemma Ray has gone all out with her latest and most ambitious album, Island Fire. True to previous eclectic form in terms of confounding expectations, the album is a trip through Gemma's ever-growing, over-flowing bag of tricks. From lavish orchestral alt-pop (Bring Ring Ring Yeah), to intimate stop-you-in-your-tracks songs (Flood and a Fire), to bitter-sweet girl group sounds (Put Your Brain In Gear), to brooding psychedelia (Make It Happen), to a sci-fi waltz (Rescue Me) and much more besides. Heavyweight clear colored vinyl complete with album download.


    Had Phil Spector forced his girl groups in a more noir soundtrack direction, this might have been the result. Ray has a truly impressive feel for pop flourishes, layered to lavish effect. - Spin


    An album packed with adventure and mischief. A true gem. - Mojo

    Silent Treatment

    Highasakite inhabits their own rare musical landscape, a place of long dark shadows, sudden flashes of glittering light, brooding silences and unexpected explosions of fierce percussion.


    Imagine Phil Spector producing Cluster, with a dash of Radiohead on the side, and you'll have the general idea, but Highasakite brings their own singular vision to the party.


    Norway's Highasakite make pop music, but an adventurous brand of indie pop full of contrasts. Their melodies and instrumentation are bold yet sometimes understated, the ebbing of one allowing the other to flourish; whether it's Ingrid Helene HÃ¥vik's otherworldly vocals or the dynamic combination of synthesizers, brass and percussion. Following on from numerous international festival appearances and the EP In And Out Of Weeks, the quintet release their debut album, Silent Treatment, in 2014.

    Smell Of Female

    Red Colored Vinyl


    Released in 1983 after a lengthy court battle with IRS Records, Smell of Female originally contained just the first six songs. These, plus out-of-control ad-lib freakouts "Beautiful Gardens" and "She Said" (previously omitted due to legal restrictions) were recorded live at New Yorks famous Peppermint Lounge. There is nothing like the sound of The Cramps, and this set distills that cross of swamp water, moonshine and nitro down to a dangerous and unstable musical substance, captured live like a crazed animal. They rocked like few others could.


    Additional bonus track "Surfin Dead" was recorded at A&M Studios in Hollywood and originally appeared on the 1984 soundtrack for Return of the Living Dead-when asked to write a "pop song" for the movie, The Cramps (by then a three-piece) threw into their cauldron a mix of Link Wray, Jan & Dean, Davie Allen, The Righteous Brothers, bongos, Phil Spector and eye of newt.

    Born To Run

    Ranked 18/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time


    Mastered By Bob Ludwig Working Under The Supervision Of Springsteen & Engineer Toby Scott


    Bruce Springsteen spent everything he had - patience, energy, studio time, the physical endurance of his E Street Band - to make his masterpiece. There are a dozen guitar overdubs on the title track alone. The album became a monster, Springsteen recalled. But in making his third album, he was living out the central drama in its gun-the-engine rock & roll: the fight to reconcile big dreams with crushing reality. He found it so hard to re-create the sound in his head - the Jersey-bar dynamite of his live gigs, Phil Spector's grandeur, Roy Orbison's melodrama - that he nearly gave up and put out a live album. But his attention to detail produced a timeless record about the labors and glories of aspiring to greatness.

    Zip-A-Dee Doo Dah

    One of the most talented acts in Phil Spector's stellar recording stable, Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans featured the great Darlene Love, one of Spector's favorite vocal muses; Fanita James, who also sang alongside Love in the ubiquitous studio vocal group the Blossoms; and Bob B. Soxx himself, aka renowned singer Bobby Sheen, a legend in West Coast R&B circles. The trio's uncanny abilities provided Spector with an ideal vehicle to perfect his musical formula, making the trio's 1963 album Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah one of the most enchanting items in the Philles label catalog.


    Recorded in the hallowed environs of L.A.'s Gold Star Studios with backup from the legendary Wrecking Crew, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah finds the trio cutting loose on a high-energy set that includes the Disney-inspired title hit and the infectious Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's Heart? Love's powerful vocals are also featured on "My Heart Beat a Little Faster and the Jackie DeShannon-penned Jimmy Baby, while the ever-soulful Sheen is showcased on such tunes as Dear (Here Comes My Baby) and Everything's Gonna Be All Right. Meanwhile, a left-field reading of Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land and the album-closing instrumental Dr. Kaplan's Office demonstrate Spector's quirkier side.

    Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes

    Originally released in time for 1964's Christmas season, the Ronettes' one and only Philles LP is considered by many to be the crown jewel of the label's catalog, representing the ultimate expression of Phil Spector's girl-group ideal.


    Fronted by the impossibly charismatic Veronica Bennett, aka Ronnie Spector, the Ronettes combined girlish innocence and playful sexiness in a manner that struck a responsive chord with listeners in the '60s, and continues to do so five decades later. With Phil's surging Wall of Sound arrangements meeting their match in the kittenish vocals of Ronnie and her sister Estelle Bennett and cousin Nedra Talley, it's not hard to understand why the Ronettes effortlessly held their own with the British Invasion acts that otherwise dominated the pop scene in 1964.


    Although the Ronettes are principally known as a singles act, Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes featuring Veronica is a remarkably consistent and cohesive set that collects all of the trio's early hits, including such enduring pop masterpieces as Be My Baby, Baby (I Love You), Walking In The Rain, Do I Love You?, (The Best Part Of) Breaking Up, You Baby and the Ronettes' original version of Chapel of Love (which predates the Dixie Cups' hit version). It's hard to imagine a more consistent collection of perfect pop bliss, or a more excellent expression of girl group greatness!
