    Eye in the Sky (Speakers Corner) (Awaiting Repress)

    Unimpressed and untouched by the glorification of individuals so typical for the music business, the Alan Parsons Project proved that even without spectacular light shows, rock celebrities in the band or self-composed songs it was possible to rise to stardom. Alan Parsons, who first took up an apprenticeship as a sound engineer at EMI and was later responsible for several Paul McCartney productions and the Pink Floyd album 'Dark Side Of The Moon' at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, drew upon his experience in order to further his solo career. While the co-producer Eric Woolfson wrote songs, Parsons who had an uncanny feeling for sound conjured up synthetic and natural sounds.



    As with all albums from the early years, 'Eye In The Sky' is inspired by important topics of the times. True to the 'no-future lifestyle' of the 80s, the songs impart a somewhat depressive character which serves as a stark contrast to the steely rock rhythms, free from electronic gimmicks. In addition one finds addictive harmony in the vocal polyphony ('Gemini'), blaring brass with a Spanish rhythm ('Silence And I') and a velvety string sound ('Old And Wise'). All in all a great achievement by the British wizard of sound at the mixing console.



    Musicians:



    • Alan Parsons (keyboards)

    • Eric Woolfson (keyboards, vocal)

    • Andrew Powell (arranger, conductor)

    • Ian Bairnson (guitar)

    • Mel Collins (saxophone)

    • David Paton (bass, guitar, vocal)

    • Stuart Elliot (drums, percussion)




    Recording: 1981 at Abbey Road Studios, London, by Alan Parsons

    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Wish You Were Here

    Ranked 209/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    On its release in 1975 Wish You Were here topped the album charts in both the UK and the US. Reflecting the band's thoughts of the time on the music business, and exploring themes of absence, Wish You Were Here contains the classic cut Shine On You Crazy Diamond, a tribute to founder member Syd Barrett.


    Since 1967 Pink Floyd have produced one of the most outstanding and enduring catalogues in the history of recorded music. The albums have been painstakingly remastered by James Guthrie (co-producer of The Wall). Artwork designed by long-time artwork collaborator Storm Thorgerson. As a part of their Why Pink Floyd? campaign, EMI has chosen to release three titles on collector's vinyl LP (throughout the year 2011 and into early 2012) including The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall.

    Jessie Jones

    In 2013, Jessie Jones gave up her possessions, vanished into the nothingness of farm country, and found herself on interstellar overdrive - far away from her Disneyfied home in Orange County. For three years, she had fronted Burger Records' Feeding People, OC's answer to Black Sabbath. The teenage byproduct of gloomy acid trips and gospel choirs, Feeding People released two albums, got signed to Innovative Leisure in 2011, and played Low End Theory with Radiohead's Thom Yorke . The 19-year-old Jones, with her bluesy growl and whimsical melodies, was being compared to Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, and Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster. In 2014, her voice returned to her with primal intent - like the caterwauling echoes of coyotes deep in the Hollywood hills. Earlier this year, Jones began singing with paranormal proto-punk outfit Death Valley Girls, which allowed her to release her demons and find salvation during what Jones describes as the most cosmically ordained project of her life. Reveling in the quantum wobble of her own alternative reality, Jones is now releasing her self-titled debut on Burger Records by channeling the voices in her head; not quite the sanitarium blues of Roky Erickson, but a mÉlange of Jim Morrison mysticism; a more stripped-down MGMT meets early-Grouplove; and Syd Barrett reverie. Under the guidance of producer Bobby Harlow (The Go) and Burger's Studio B, Jones' debut this summer will include guest appearances by drummer Duke Mushroom, violinist Hannah Glass, and Studio B regular King Tuff.

    Odessey and Oracle

    Half Speed Mastered


    Odessey and Oracle was one of the flukiest (and best) albums of the 1960s, and one of the most enduring long-players to come out of the entire British psychedelic boom, mixing trippy melodies, ornate choruses, and lush Mellotron sounds with a solid hard rock base. But it was overlooked completely in England and barely got out in America (with a big push by Al Kooper, who was then a Columbia Records producer); and it was neglected in the U.S. until the single Time of the Season, culled from the album, topped the charts nearly two years after it was recorded, by which time the group was long disbanded. Ironically, at the time of its recording in the summer of 1967, permanency was not much on the minds of the bandmembers. Odessey and Oracle was intended as a final statement, a bold last hurrah, having worked hard for three years only to see the quality of their gigs decline as the hits stopped coming. The results are consistently pleasing, surprising, and challenging: Hung Up on a Dream and Changes are some of the most powerful psychedelic pop/rock ever heard out of England, with a solid rhythm section, a hot Mellotron sound, and chiming, hard guitar, as well as highly melodic piano. Changes also benefits from radiant singing. This Will Be Our Year makes use of trumpets (one of the very few instances of real overdubbing) in a manner reminiscent of Penny Lane; and then there's Time of the Season, the most well-known song in their output and a white soul classic. Not all of the album is that inspired, but it's all consistently interesting and very good listening, and superior to most other psychedelic albums this side of the Beatles' best and Pink Floyd's early work. Indeed, the only complaint one might have about the original LP is its relatively short running time, barely over 30 minutes, but even that's refreshing in an era where most musicians took their time making their point.

    The New Hovering Dog

    BJ Cole came to prominence in the early 1970s with the country rock outfit, Cochise. His signature pedal steel playing has marked numerous LPs including ones by T Rex, Elton John (Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water), Cat Stevens, Bjork, The Verve, Depeche Mode, Beck, Elvis Costello, David Gilmour, Emmylou Harris, Pet Shop Boys, Robert Plant, Scott Walker, and the list goes on. The man Sting once described as "the best pedal steel player in the world" is versed in many styles from pop, rock, jazz to experimental. His versatility is perhaps no better showcased than on his first solo album The New Hovering Dog; it combines poetry with orchestration and electronics with a strong cast of musicians from that era. Originally released in 1972 on United Artists, it is now available again on LP after 40 years, remastered and two bonus tracks added.

    The Innermost Limits Of Pure Fun Soundtrack

    Translucent Gold Vinyl


    Includes A Four-page Insert With Rare Photos


    Liner Notes By Denny Aaberg And Dennis Dragon


    Innermost Limits of Pure Fun, with its whimsical, philosophical "California" title, was a groundbreaking project in the history of sports footage. Filmmaker George Greenough was unencumbered by any commercial reasons for designing boards, boats, or in his wave riding technique, a true SOUL SURFER if there ever was one. With the means, and ideas, to use underwater camera gear that had not been previously used - and still rarely used to such great effect - Greenough's two late '60s cinematic efforts were the maximum effect, in the effort of communicating the feel of surfing to the viewer. Some of the non-surfers overwhelmed by the beauty of his work within "Innermost" came to George and offered their help for the follow-up, to be titled Echoes. These ho-dads from England were better known to the world as Pink Floyd.


    In choosing who to soundtrack his debut masterpiece, Greenough went with the most dynamic band to record during the surf instrumental era of the early '60s, Capitol Records 45 r.p.m. artists The Dragons, who released "Troll" in 1964. The single was actually an excerpt from a soundtrack recorded for the early Dale Davis film Strictly Hot. What set it apart from the reverbed surf crunchers of the early '60s was its beyond "Pipeline" instrumentation. Keyboard riffs meshed fluidly with bass harmonica, sophisticated percussion, snap drums, and a fuzzy guitar ripping through bass lines so thick you would swear there was an orchestra behind them. That made sense, since the father of some Dragons was leader of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Carmen Dragon.


    By 1969, The Dragons had progressed within a world ready for jazz improvisation in rock. Some of them had toured with the "Good Vibrations" era Beach Boys. It was with great intuition that George Greenough chose The Dragons for this soundtrack to "Innermost Limits of Pure Fun," for they had been itching to do a project where they could really let themselves GO. And there, you get it, within the package before you. What you're dealing with are surf instrumental musicians on a par unmatched, a few years after the trend, getting a chance to really dig in, in order to be involved at the level of media George Greenough was shaping.


    This Deluxe Sundazed package available on colored vinyl includes a four-page insert featuring rare photos plus liner notes by Denny Aaberg, of the legendary Malibu Aaberg guitarist/surfer family, and Dennis Dragon, drummer of The Dragons, and without question the most prolific maker of surf movie soundtracks during its golden era of the '60s and '70s.

    First Authorized Vinyl Edition Of 1983 Debut Studio Album In 25 Years


    Re-Mastered With Original Cover Art


    "This is all slabs of sound, rhythm and screaming/testifying. What more do you need? In a way, it was a reaction against Punk (and just about any other music you can think of), and the conservative notion that 3 chords were somehow necessary. I used to deny it vehemently at the time, but No Wave (I "hated" that scene too, for some reason I can't remember now) played a big role as the germ from which this music grew, along with The Stooges and Throbbing Gristle, of course. I wanted Swans to be "heavier" though - I wanted the music to obliterate - why, I don't remember! I think it just felt good. Live, we used two basses (playing utterly unmusical chords that were stabbed and left to sustain or sometimes hit in staccato or opposing rhythms), drums, a "percussionist" that slammed down on a metal table with a metal strap, crude cassette loops of various sounds/noises (usually some kind of undefined ROAR), and Norman Westberg's glorious sustained and screaming guitar chords. It was pretty elating to play live - for us. If 100 people showed up (which would have been a huge audience at the time - 20 was more the average), 80 were guaranteed to leave by the second song. Somehow that tension - contempt or indifference from the audience - was nourishing, so we kept going.


    Here's some music I was listening to at the time: Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, The Stooges, Brian Eno, Teenage Jesus And The Jerks, DNA, The Contortions, Glenn Branca, Black Flag, early Pink Floyd, This Heat, Kraftwerk, The Germs, Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Public Image LTD., SPK "

    Reworks (Pre-Order)

    With its distinctive renditions of songs by DJ Shadow, My Bloody
    Valentine, Fleet Foxes, and more, Walt Wagner's Reworks shows how
    three Seattle institutions - Wagner, the city's renowned Canlis
    restaurant, and Sub Pop Records - have evolved over the years. When
    veteran pianist Wagner first landed at Canlis in 1996, he started out
    performing a set heavy on the Great American Songbook and the
    occasional pop tune. As young staff members recommended new
    artists and songs, Wagner's repertoire grew deeper and more varied -
    especially after the next generation of the Canlis family took over in
    2003. Yet whether the source material was Pink Floyd, Prince,
    Metallica, or the Weeknd, the challenge remained the same: "To distill
    the vibe on a record, the very essence of a song, into solo piano
    playing."


    One fateful night a couple years ago, a crew from Sub Pop were dining
    at the restaurant when they recognized melodies by Adele and Daft
    Punk wafting through the restaurant and decided to investigate. Canlis
    co-owner Mark Canlis offered the Sub Pop crew a full tour, and when
    he pulled out a vintage copy of the '60s LP Live At Canlis, an idea was
    born. With Wagner preparing to retire, the time was ripe for a recording
    that captured his inimitable gifts in their natural surroundings.


    In preparation for the big night, Wagner sat down with the Sub Pop
    team for more ideas. "I wanted them to feed me tunes that they loved
    and could imagine hearing me play." Sub Pop alumni Fleet Foxes and
    Band of Horses were already staples of Wagner's sets, but what magic
    could he work with DJ Shadow, Phoenix, or My Bloody Valentine? He
    had three months to find out.


    The album's opening selection, "Building Steam with a Grain of Salt,"
    provides a glimpse into Wagner's modus operandi. "The first time I
    listened to it, I said 'well what can I do with that?'" He recalls. "But
    the more I listened, the more I noticed these signature moments in the
    song, and through messing around with those and improvisation, I
    ended up with my version."


    Recorded before a packed house on October 9, 2016, Reworks is more
    than just a souvenir of a very special evening; it captures decades of
    musicianship that forged Wagner's distinctive style. He studied
    classical piano throughout his youth, yet kept his playing secret until
    he'd reached his teens, when he began playing in rock bands.


    While learning to improvise and play more rhythmically made him a hit
    with his peers, his classical instruction made his band the Exotics
    especially popular with local bookers. "We were one of the only bands
    that could read music, so we accompanied different stars of the time:
    Dick and Dee Dee, Johnny Crawford, all these '50s and early '60s
    artists that came to town." The Exotics even cut a single, a Wagner
    original entitled "Oasis," that made it to #3 on local radio station KJR
    in the summer of 1961.


    In the years that followed, Wagner played at downtown Seattle
    watering holes and eateries and refined his jazz chops. Two decades at
    Canlis taught him to interact with listeners in a whole new way. And
    now, flush with excitement over Reworks, Wagner may not stay retired
    for long.

    Paranormal (Awaiting Repress)

    "Paranormal" is Alice Coopers 20th studio album, his first album of original material in six years. It's a weird and wonderful collection of guitar-driven delights and produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple), and featuring guests like ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members. "Paranormal" is full of surprises and riveting turns.


    In keeping with his passion for the unexpected, the singer decided to steer clear of writing another concept album like 2011's "Welcome 2 My Nightmare," and focused on creating an explosive collection of unforgettable standalone songs. On "Paranormal", Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin go back to their roots and create the raw garage sound that fans loved and still love. With the beloved sound of Cooper's early days, fans will feel like they're taken back straight to the 70s.


    Perhaps the biggest surprise on "Paranormal" is the historic two-song mini-reunion with his former bandmates, guitarist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway and drummer Neal Smith. The two songs, "Genuine American Girl" and the Who-inspired "You and All Your Friends" stand out, as in their iconic sound being instantly recognizable.

    The Headless Ritual (Out of Stock)

    Among the early breed of US death metal pioneers, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco and released four albums on Peaceville Records. Beginning with the classic debut 'Severed Survival' in 1989, they disbanded in 1995 with members going on to form Abscess. Autopsy triumphantly and officially returned from the grave after a 15 year
    hiatus with the 2010 EP, 'The Tomb Within', followed by the release of the band's widely acclaimed fifth studio album, 'Macabre Eternal' in 2011, which further cemented the legacy of this legendary act.


    2013 sees Autopsy return more sinister and rotten-to-the-core than ever with their new studio opus of horror and all-out madness, 'The Headless Ritual'; featuring the returning quartet of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler, Danny Coralles, and Joe Trevisano. 'The Headless Ritual' is a relentless monster of violent and brutal death metal mastery delivered in the unmistakable Autopsy style of chaotic riffing, insane solos and doom-filled interludes, all served with the band's unhinged brand of vocal sickness.
    The album was recorded and mixed April 2013 at Fantasy Studios in California with Adam Munoz, and features cover artwork by renowned artist Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin).


    Autopsy notably features drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling drums and vocals for Autopsy. Autopsy has influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed and Dismember to Darkthrone, and is among the biggest and most respected names in the genre's history.
