    Red Weather

    After leaving Blue Cheer in 1969, guitarist Leigh Stephens, whose pulverizing roar was an essential element of the band's original sound, made his solo debut with Red Weather. In contrast to his former band's stripped-down metallic blast, Stephens spread his musical wings to explore new musical territory. Although Stephens' trademark guitar sound is still prominent, it's featured in a more eclectic context that encompasses elements of avant-psychedelia and electric blues. Also featured is stellar piano work by legendary English pianist Nicky Hopkins.

    Red

    Released in 1974 after King Crimson had "ceased to exist", Red remains a remarkably powerful document of a group quitting at the top of its game. The grinding crunch of Red appears to anticipate much of the heavy metal scene whilst the epic Starless brings together several strands of the group's musical history.


    Including powerful contributions from Ian McDonald, Mel Collins, David Cross, Mark Charig and Robin Miller, Red form what is arguably the definitive statement of the '70s period Crimson. Bill Bruford recently described the album in just five words: Prescient, short and bass heavy."

    Red

    For the last two years, I've been working on an album called Red, Taylor says. I called it Red because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. In my mind, when you experience love that's fast paced and out of control and mixes infatuation, jealousy, frustration, miscommunication, and all of those lovely emotions...in retrospect, it all looks red.


    After writing her last album (Speak Now) entirely by herself, for this record Taylor collaborated with several artists, producers, and songwriters she had always wanted to work with for the album's 16 tracks, including the lead single, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. While Nathan Chapman serves as the lead producer, a variety of producers were involved in the recording process. Swift co-wrote the album with people from all different places in music. Collaborators include Dan Wilson, Butch Walker, Max Martin and Ed Sheeran.


    Rolling Stone has described the album as Swift's most eclectic set ever, ranging from 'State of Grace,' a howling, U2-style epic with reverb-drenched guitars, to a sweet acoustic duet with U.K. singer Ed Sheeran. Another key track even features a dubstep-inspired bass breakdown. The album's lead single, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, was released in August 2012. The song became Swift's first number one single on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, recording the highest ever one-week sales figures for a female artist.

    Dia Frampton, a 23-year old singer/songwriter from St. George, Utah is half Korean and half Dutch. Her career aspiration has been to be a voice-over actress, but her considerable singing talents may just steer her elsewhere. A life-long bookworm, Frampton also writes novels and children's books.


    However, when Dia landed on the first season of NBC's hit television series, The Voice, millions of viewers fell in love with her mesmerizing delivery and inimitable style. There's even more to fall in love with on her forthcoming full-length debut for Universal Records. The 10-track Red features songs produced and written by Busbee (Katy Perry), Greg Wells (Adele), Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen) and others!

    Replacement Stylus For The Ortofon 2M Red


    2M are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound. We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.


    The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.


    Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with the unrelenting commitment of Ortofon to provide the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.


    The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.


    The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.


    2M Red features a tipped elliptical diamond.

    Red

    The long awaited follow up from the irrepressible Norwegian duo sees both '80s and modern day influences intertwined to create a landmark release. Red is a thoroughly unashamed love letter from Fredrik and musical partner Ketil Mosnes' to the influences that made Datarock what they are today. DEVO, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Haruki Murakami, Don Delillo's White Noise, Scott Walker and the works of John Hughes and Peter Greenaway are all referenced. The duo does a fine balancing act here of sounding both modern and retro, and altogether funny. Highlights include the album's centerpiece and single The Pretender and Amarillion among others.

    Includes LP Insert With Unreleased Photos And Interviews With Puddy Lion And Linval Thompson


    Although his lack of touring kept him from being established as a major figure in
    overground reggae circles, Linval Thompson's work as a singer, songwriter and
    producer is essential to Jamaican music. Between 1977 and 1979, he released
    five solo albums and produced countless artists on the side. Thompson acted as
    a mentor to many up-and-comers, including Junjo Lawes, Scientist, and Eek-AMouse.


    As dancehall became more prominent in the late 1970s, Thompson began to
    offer up his rhythms to sound system deejays. The mysterious deejay LP, Bunny
    Lion Red was originally released on London's Starlight records in 1979. Little was
    written about the album at the time; however, we have uncovered that Bunny
    Lion is in fact the legendary Puddy Roots of Killamanjaro Soundsystem fame.


    Red features ten grooving Thompson Sound rhythms voiced by Puddy. This is
    the earliest documented work of the criminally under-recorded Puddy Roots. It's
    also the perfect gateway record for anyone curious about dub, roots reggae, or
    dancehall.

    Exclusive 10 Inch, 45 RPM Vinyl



    Crenshaw's music still pops with the same rootsy authority as it did back when record albums were the preferred delivery system of rock 'n' roll and a tweet was a tweet. - The Huffington Post


    Marshall Crenshaw is best known as the writer and performer of such timeless classics as Someday Someway, (You're My Favorite) Waste Of Time and There She Goes Again. He has also written the Top 10 single Til I Hear It From You for the Gin Blossoms and the title song for the film Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story which received both a Grammy and a Golden Globe nomination.


    He appeared in the films La Bamba (as Buddy Holly) and Francis Ford Coppola's Peggy Sue Got Married. Crenshaw can be heard on his own radio show, The Bottomless Pit on New York's WFUV.


    Crenshaw's most recent project has been a popular and critically acclaimed series of 10 vinyl EPs sold individually. Each EP contains a new song, a cover song, and a re-make of one of Crenshaw's own classics. His fourth EP, Red Wine, features the great new title song as well as a cover of James McMurtry' Right Here Now and a re-make of Crenshaw's classic Delilah.

    Red Octopus

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI from the Original RCA/Grunt Records Tapes


    When Jefferson Airplane morphed successfully into Jefferson Starship in the mid-'70s, their musicianship, and recorded output was enthusiastically received and was a very important career move in the continuing story of these Bay Area superstars.


    Red Octopus surely helped award them fame even further as this amazing Jefferson Starship LP went to #1 and soon became one of the many platinum plus ventures for this much loved and respected band. Their new formula worked tremendously as this watershed release featured a plethora of chart topping hits like Miracles, Play On Love, Fast Buck Freddie and There Will Be Love.


    The band was rich with rock and roll history, consisting of Airplane mainstays Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Marty Balin, plus later Airplane alumnus David Freiberg (Quicksilver), Papa John Creach, and Johnny Barbata (CSN+Y, Turtles), as well as new additions Craig Chaquico and Pete Sears. Jefferson Starship truly delivered the goods with Red Octopus as this album went on to quickly become a classic rock masterpiece!


    Friday Music is no stranger to releasing some of the greatest music ever recorded by Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Starship and Hot Tuna, so it is with much honor they have announced the release of the masterwork Red Octopus on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl. This limited edition masterpiece has been impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI from the original RCA/ Grunt Records tapes.


    In honor of their continuing 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl series on the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship franchise, Friday Music is also issuing this wonderful album with a very limited gatefold cover, which includes the original artwork elements, plus the lyrics and photos as you remember them from the original 1975 release. As usual, you will also get a poly sleeve to protect your vinyl investment, as well as a poly bag to protect the stunning album cover.

    Ruby Red

    Friends and fans of The Love Language songwriter and frontman Stuart McLamb have learned to expect a lot, but rarely in a timely manner. Completing a triumvirate of spiritual transmissions spent lost (2009's The Love Language) and found (2010's Libraries), 2013's Ruby Red exorcises the transient brilliance fostered by McLamb within the sheetrock walls of the album's namesake artist space.


    Featuring over twenty musicians and straddling several time zones, The Love Language's lone puppeteer borrowed heavier equipment, and held on to it longer. Initiated in a windowless unit at the fabled Ruby Red, several failed attempts
    and false starts at a songwriting spree landed McLamb and his engineer/case worker/boxing coach BJ Burton in Black Mountain, North Carolina, consuming every square inch of a carpeted bungalow located a few acres too close to their skittish neighbors. Soon after, Burton's relocation to Minneapolis
    effectively thrust McLamb from their shared nest, helping Ruby Red discover its inherent propensity for flight.


    Ruby Red produces new standards for the Carolina pop songbook, finding The Love Language as an extroverted community art project made by responsible citizens of a loosely packed scene
    who know that McLamb will match whatever they contribute. The heartbreak is over. Now we're getting somewhere.

    Dark Red

    Dark Red is the second full-length album from Shlohmo, aka 25 year-old Los Angeles native Henry Laufer. The album is an uncanny marriage of his ever-evolving, richly textured sound with shades of 90s IDM, R&B, cassette-tape Jungle, and, in an unexpected turn, sludge metal. "It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record," he says, "or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx." Shlohmo's music thus far exists in the poles between the subtle textured tracks of 2011's Bad Vibes and the booming sinister synths and hihats of his production work and remixes (split EP with Jeremih, Banks' "Brain", remixes for Drake + The Weeknd). Dark Red utilizes Shlohmo's existing palate but also mines the noises and imperfections inherent in analog production and naturally damaged sounds. Side-stepping current trends that lean towards pristine, computer-generated production, Dark Red explores natural distortion, fuzz and noise as compositional tools, intentionally distressing sounds to echo the feeling of the icy menace and emotional charge found on early black metal tapes. The result is a deeply personal listen, Shlohmo's boldest statement yet.

    Hubbard's First Affair WithCreed Taylor's CTI Label


    Group Includes Joe Henderson, Herbie

    Recorded At Van Gelder Studios, Engineered
    By Rudy Van Gelder


    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes At 45RPM
    By Bernie Grundman


    Pressed On 180 Gram Audiophile-Grade Vinyl At Pallas In Germany


    "This may be Freddie Hubbard's finest moment as
    a leader, in that it embodies and utilizes all of his
    strengths as a composer, soloist, and frontman. on
    red Clay, Hubbard combines hard bop's glorious
    blues-out past with the soulful innovations of
    mainstream jazz in the 1960s, and reads them through
    the chunky groove innovations of 1970s jazz fusion.
    This session places the trumpeter in the company
    of giants such as tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson,
    pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist ron Carter, and
    drummer lenny White. Hubbard's five compositions all
    come from deep inside blues territory; these shaded
    notions are grafted onto funky hard bop melodies
    worthy of Horace silver's finest tunes, and are layered
    inside the smoothed-over cadences of shimmering,
    steaming soul. This is a classic, hands down."

    Big Red & Barbacoa

    Red Vinyl


    Big Red and Barbacoa is the second album by South Texas' Hacienda, and like its predecessor Loud Is The Night (Alive 2008), it has been produced at the Akron Analog Studio by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys.
    Recorded on the tail end of a year of playing at clubs and festivals across North America, Australia, and Europe, opening for Dan Auerbach and Dr. Dog, this new album brings heavier grooves and flavor to the '60s harmonies sound the band is known for. The result is a blend of Tex-Mex roots rock, retro-pop and R&B that can only be described as South Texas Soul. Big Red and Barbacoa captures the attitude of a band ready to throw pretension to the roadside and play rock'n'roll the way it was intended.

    Blood Red Shoes

    When a band releases a self-titled album, it usually means one of two things - they feel like they've made their defining statement, or they ran out of ideas for album titles. Happily, For Blood Red Shoes, it's the former. "I feel like this is the strongest thing we've ever done," says Steven Ansell, drummer. "It's the most honest f*cking record we've ever made. It's us completely naked."

    Prestige Series Red Cartridge

    The Prestige (and upscale Reference) cartridges from Grado are the first released since the elder Grado's retirement, but they mark an evolution, not dramatic change, of the classic Grado style. There are three basic levels in the Prestige lineup: Black/Green, Blue/Red, and Silver/Gold. In each of these pairings, the latter model is the same as the former, but is able to meet more astringent test specifications. The Green, for instance, is taken from the top 15% of the Black models production.


    The newly redesigned Blue1 and Red1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Blue1 and Red1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Red1 model is selected from the Blue1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 10% of the production run will meet these standards and become Red1 models.


    There may be some recordable response differences between this cartridge and it's more expensive brethren, but it's difficult to imagine more pleasing and musical performance. The Grado Prestige Red is proof that one does not have to spend large amounts of money for good sound from a phono cartridge. More expensive cartridges may well provide incremental improvements in one or more areas, but the Grado performs at a level where such improvements will be small. I recommend that you consider this $ensible cartridge, as it is good value for the price.
