    Liner Notes By Guitarist Will Sergeant

    One of the most acclaimed British rockers from the 1980's, this legendary band formed in Liverpool in 1978 and were forefathers of the neopsychedelic movement. Their line-up consisted of vocalist Ian McCulloch, guitarist Will Sergeant, bass player Les Pattinson and drummer Pete de Freitas, eventually replacing the original drum machine.

    The band's cult status eventually waned with mainstream success in 1983 after they scored a UK top 10 hit with "The Cutter" and attendant album Porcupine which hit #2 in the UK. 1984's album Ocean Rain is considered a landmark post-punk release, featuring the lead single "Killing Moon."

    The band split in 1988 but regrouped in 1997, releasing an album in 2014 that was their first UK Top 40 entry since 1999. The band's popularity never quite made the same impact in the US as it did in Europe so they are ripe for rediscovery for anyone interested in bands such as Suede, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Blur, Interpol and Oasis.

    This brand new collection of their legendary live material recorded in Sweden in 1985 includes classic Rock-N-Roll covers of legendary tunes by the Doors, Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground, Television and more available on vinyl for the first time. Many of the tracks from Sweden were recorded live for Swedish National Radio at the Karen Club. Also included here is a legendary extended version of "Do It Clean" recorded live in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 1983.

    Highlights From The Fun House Sessions (Pre-Order)

    Pressed On 180g, Multi-Color Vinyl And Pressed At Record Industry

    Each 2-LP Set Is Individually Numbered And Strictly Limited

    Comes In A Gatefold Tip-On Stoughton Sleeve With Brand New Artwork

    1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions was recorded at Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles and compiled from all thirteen reels of multi-track tape that held every note and snippet of studio dialogue. Twelve reels of tape were used during the original sessions, with the thirteenth reel having the takes that would be used on the studio album.

    This sprawling set which was originally aimed at the collector market would be challenging and cost prohibitive to reissue as a multi-disc vinyl box set. What is presented here is an attempt to assemble some of the best highlights from the Fun House Sessions on an officially-released 2LP set in high quality packaging with a sequence that hopefully proves to be an easier, and more casual listen.

    Included are some terrific alternate versions of Down on the Street,Loose, Dirt, Funhouse, 1970 and others, pulled from session reels 1,4, 6, 7, 9 and 11 and originally recorded on May 11, 12, 15, 18, 21 and 25 of 1970. Also notable is the inclusion of the 17+ minute version of L.A. Blues,titled as Freak, which encompasses the entire fourth side of this set and is the prime example of what makes the Fun House Sessions both loved and feared.

    One of the most unique, original and unusual rock bands to burst onto the alternative scene in the 90s, Morphine was originally formed by vocalist/ bassist Mark Sandman, saxophonist Dana Colley and drummer Jerome Deupree (later replaced by Billy Conway) in Cambridge, Mass in 1989. They expertly combined blues, jazz and rock elements into a very distinct style, anchored by Sandman's deep, crooning, beat-style vocals. Rather than having an electric guitar as the focal point like most rock bands, the trio's sound was built around Sandman's two-string electric bass (often deployed with a slide) and Colley's growling, baritone sax which they dubbed as low-rock.

    The band enjoyed critical acclaim but saw mixed results commercially. In the States, they were embraced on public and college radio and MTV's 120 Minutes but received little to no support from commercial rock radio or other music TV programming. They did enjoy much higher profile success overseas, especially in Belgium, Portugal France and Australia where they were featured on music television programming frequently and filled much larger venues.

    After five studio albums and extensive touring, Morphine disbanded after Mark tragically died of a heart attack performing on stage at the Giardini del Principe in Palestrina, Italy. Surviving members have soldiered on in various incarnations, the most recent being the Vapors of Morphine that will be on tour through the summer of 2017.

    Morphine was an incredibly dynamic and highly improvisational band in concert, yet released only one live album in their career. Live At The Warfield 1997 will right the ship by shedding light on a fantastic live rock n' roll document that has gone unheard for 20 years â€" and Mark Sandman was a stickler for fidelity of their documented live performances so this music was expertly recorded showcasing amazing room ambience.

    First Time Issued On Vinyl In The U.S. And Only The Second Time It Will Be Pressed To Wax Since The First Edited Version Was Released In 1989 In Europe

    Features The Complete Show On Vinyl For The First Time, Including Tracks See That My Grave Is Kept Clean, When You Smile, All Along The Watchtower, And Tell Me When It's Over, That Are Making Their Debut Appearance On The Format

    Though never commercially successful, Paisley Underground darlings the Dream Syndicate were critically acclaimed and held up their version of neo-psychedelic rock n' roll through the vapid MTV-dominated synth years of the 1980s. Influenced by the Velvet Underground, Neil Young and Television, the Syndicate led by vocalist, guitarist and band leader, Steve Wynn, formed the original version of the band with guitarist Karl Precoda in 1982 after moving back to Los Angeles. Drummer Dennis Duck, who played in the Pasadena band, Human Hands, joined the Syndicate and suggested the band's name in reference to Tony Conrad's early 1960s NY experimental ensemble that included John Cale.

    The band performed their first live show at Club Lingerie in Hollywood on Feb 23, 1982, and later signed to Slash Records' subsidiary, Ruby Records,releasing their enigmatic and best-known album, The Days of Wine and Roses. After a brief hiatus in the latter 1980s, Wynn, Duck and bassist Mark Walton joined with guitarist Paul Cutler who had produced the band's very first EP. By 1988, the band was on Enigma Records and began a relationship with producer Elliott Mazer, who produced Neil Young's Time Fades Away. Mazer produced Live at Raji's which showcased the band's long, feedback soaked improvisations and even though it was released AFTER the Mazer-produced studio album, Ghost Stories, it was recorded prior to that on Jan 31, 1988, at Raji's in Hollywood; not 1989 as originally listed on the album upon release.

    What Run Out Groove presents here is the complete show, including 4 tracks making their debut on wax. Live at Raji's would see its release for the first time in the U.S., since the original vinyl album debuted in Europe back in 1989. If you like R.E.M., Mazzy Star, Rain Parade, Galaxie 500, Big Star, The Velvet Underground, Television and Grant Lee Buffalo you won't want to miss this title.

    Run-DMC

    Future archaeologists will discuss two periods in 1980s: before Run-DMC and after Run-DMC. It's no exaggeration to say that the group
    changed the course of music in the '80s, bringing the old-school of rap into the new with one simple piece of flat, black plastic.


    Coming up in the rap world of the early 1980s under the wing of Kurtis Blow (group manager Russell Simmons managed Blow, and Run
    was, at one time, a DJ known as "Son of Kurtis Blow") and Blow's bassist and burgeoning super-producer Larry Smith, the trio - Joseph
    "Run" Simmons, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels and Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell - learned from the best, but created their own path.


    1983 was the year that they first broke out. With only an Oberheim DMX drum program and some cuts by Jay, "Sucker M.C.s (Krush-Groove
    1)" was a shot across the bow to the slick, post-disco pocket rap had settled into. It was raw, pure swagger and it took both New Yorkers
    and music aficionados around the world by storm. The song's lyrics are a mandatory memorization assignment to this day by MCs learning
    their craft. "Two years ago, a friend of mine "


    The group's sound, which was laid out muscularly on Run-DMC, had a harder approach than their peers, thanks to producer Larry Smith's
    use of live musicians who laid down grooves but didn't soften the edges. Lyrically the group wasn't just about brags either, with songs like
    "Hard Times," "It's Like That" and "Wake Up" (the first two were singles). Run's and DMC's overlapping tag-team approach to lyricism was
    powerful and immensely influential.


    "Rock Box," another single and arguably the centerpiece of the album, was a nod to their hard edge, and a foreshadowing of their first
    worldwide smash, 1985's "King Of Rock." Jam Master Jay's DJ work was stellar, knowing exactly when to jump in and put listeners' ears in
    a headlock.


    The album was the first rap full-length to achieve Gold status, and as fans know, the group was just getting started - their next two LPs would
    take them to even higher status in the music world, critically and sales-wise. But this is where it all started, and it's a classic that still sounds
    fresh today as it did more than 30 years ago.

    The Magnificent Seven is a remake of the 1960s western film, which in turn was a remake of the 1954 Japanese classic film, Seven Samurai.


    As the town Rose Krick is put under the siege of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the residents enlist the help of seven outlaws. Headed by bounty hunter Sam Chisolm they ought to protect them while they prepare for the anticipated violent confrontation. However, upon meeting the town's residents, the Seven find themselves fighting for much more than money.


    The film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard and Haley Bennett.


    Multiple Award Winning composer James Horner was asked to write the film's score but died on June 22, 2015. Nearly a month after his death movie director Antoine Fuqua learned that James Horner had already started working on music for the film before filming commenced. Horner's friend and score producer Simon Franglen co-composed the score after Horner's death. This score will be the final James Horner score to be released posthumously.

It has garnered several nominations, including fourteen Primetime Emmy Awards, seven Writers Guild of America Awards, five Critics' Choice Television Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award and two Golden Globe Awards. The series premiere held the record for the highest-rated scripted series premiere in basic cable history at the time of its airing.


    Dave Porter, the composer of the score, has also written the opening theme and complete score of Breaking Bad. For his work on Breaking Bad, Porter has won an ASCAP Award. The Better Call Saul score features songs from the first and second series.

    Soul Christmas (Pre-Order)

    Considered One Of The Best Rock N Roll Holiday Records Of All Time And Includes A Roster Of Legendary Soul Artists From Atlantic Records' Halcyon Years Of 1960s Soul


    Mastered From The Original Stereo Source With Lacquers Cut At Sam Phillips Recording Service In Memphis


    180g Vinyl Housed In A Single Pocket Tip-On Stoughton Paper-Wrapped UV-Gloss Sleeve


    Pressed On Colored Vinyl


    Originally released as an Atlantic holiday compilation in 1968 and long out of print on vinyl, Soul Christmas is an 11 track collection of songs featuring Soul legends such as Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Clarence Carter, William Bell, King Curtis, and Booker T & The MGs. Apart from nods to classics like White Christmas done by Otis, Booker T's Jingle Bells, and the R&B favorite What Are You Doing New Year's Eve (featuring Sax man King Curtis along with a guitar solo by Duane Allman), the songs are tailor-made originals that fit the style of the respective artists. Carter's Back Door Santa is a hilariously salacious cut; Tex gives us a preacher-like I'll Make Everyday Christmas; and Thomas is at her most cute and innocent with Gee Whiz, It's Christmas. Redding's version of Merry Christmas Baby is an obvious standout, while Bell's Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday is the only bona fide charted single. The album is ranked #9 on Rolling Stone's 25 Greatest Christmas Albums of All Time list.

    With roots in classic Soul, British Invasion and Rockabilly, Detroit native Marshall Crenshaw has forged a very original and melodic form of crafting songs over the past 35 plus years in the music business. In the early days, Marshall was compared to Buddy Holly often, due in part to his portrayal of the doomed rock icon in the 1987 film, La Bamba."Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, He soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself "-Quote from The Trouser Press.


    In addition to his original songs, that have been covered over the years by notable artists such as Ronnie Spector, Robert Gordon, the Gin Blossoms, America, Freedy Johnston, Bette Midler, Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs to name a few, Marshall is an accomplished guitarist with a very jazz-oriented style of playing. Marshall launched his original trio in New York with his brother Robert on drums and Chris Donato on bass, recording "Something's Gonna Happen" for Alan Betrock's Shake Records in 1981.Soon afterwards, the trio was signed to Warner Bros. Records and his debut album, simply titled "Marshall Crenshaw," was released in 1982 and included his biggest hit, "Someday Someway." Robert Gordon took the song to #76 in 1981 and Crenshaw's own version made #36 in 82. It would be Marshall's only solo Billboard Top 40 Pop hit. On the Cash Box magazine chart the song went to #31 and reached #25 on Billboard's Rock Tracks. The song, 'Til I Hear It From You," sung by the Gin Blossoms and co-written by Marshall , reached #11 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1996.


    Despite his 4 subsequent WB studio albums not including hits, Marshall continued to record in the 1990s and 2000s. "Better Back Off" from the MCA album, "Life's Too Short," reached #17 on Billboard's Alternative Songs Chart. In the 2000s Marshall played guitar as a guest of the reunited MC5, growing up a fan of the band in Detroit. He penned the title track from the 2007 film, "Walk Hard" starring John C Reilly, with the song being nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in a movie. In 2011 he began hosting a radio show called The Bottomless Pit on WFUV in New York, featuring his vast collection of music.


    Although Marshall has released many live albums throughout his career, this newly discovered unreleased performance found in Warner Music's vault was recorded while he was touring in support of his debut release in 1982 and includes several songs seeing their first release on any format. Co-produced by Marshall, who supplied rare photographs and liner notes and mixed by Chris Stamey, this lovingly packaged live document provides a unique snapshot back to Marshall's formative years as an artist and would fill a hole in his recorded live legacy.

    Good Nature (Pre-Order)

    Pressed On Colored Vinyl

    Frontman Austin Getz doesn't blink when asked to sum up Turnover's third full-length, Good Nature. Learning, he replies. This whole record is about learning. Opening your eyes to new things, going out- side of your comfort zone, and learning to grow into something new. The album's unique blend of musical and spiritual growth is immediately audible on the opening track, Super Natural, a late-summer idyll of intertwined guitar parts and laidback vocals. Listening to how the leisurely Nightlight Girl melts into a more propulsive selection like Breeze, and the way Good Nature flows together as a seamless whole, it's also evident that the foursome has been paying closer attention to how artists from earlier eras made full-length albums: the range of textures, tempos, and dynamics on Good Nature are influenced in part by bossa nova, cool jazz, electronic music, and psychedelic grooves. This influx of new influences and inspiration, navigated by Peripheral Vision producer Will Yip, results in the band's best album to date. Good Nature comes from a place of calm and contentment, nurtured by looking inward.

    The Scout 2 features a 1 7/8 thick aluminum platter (with a stainless steel damping plate) in place of the Scout's 1 3/8 acrylic platter.


    The result of mating a great platter to a simple good looking design! In only seven years, the VPI Scout has become the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! For 2009, we saw fit to bring some big improvements to its best-selling turntable. You may recognize the outboard motor and the plinth, but you will do a double take at the exquisite platter and tonearm.


    Every VPI Scout II comes standard with the JMW 9T! This incredible tonearm features a redesigned armtube that is tapered and filled with a proprietary damping material. This revolutionary design greatly reduces internal resonance, yielding a full and rich sound, with a vast soundstage and increased resolution and detail. The added mass also produces deeper bass response and fantastic compatibility with moving coil cartridges.


    For maximum stability and speed accuracy the platter is made from 1 7/8 thick machined 6061 aluminum and is attached to a nonmagnetic 303 stainless steel damping plate. The entire piece weighs in at an impressive 18 pounds! Because the aluminum is grounded to the steel, there is virtually no static buildup or sonic degradation. What's in the grooves is what comes out of your speakers.


    The VPI Scout II's plinth is made from 1 1/8 thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate giving a rigid, non-resonant plinth. The massive platter sits on chrome-hardened ball bearing held by a 60 Rockwell-hardened shaft, below which is a black delrin nut.


    The VPI Scout II generates absolutely no additional noise for a pristinely quiet spin. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt. This combination produces quiet yet stable running with extremely accurate speed. Speeds are 33 and 45 standard, while 78 is optional.

    Tougher Than Leather

    Too many people sleep on Tougher Than Leather, Run-DMC's fourth album. But hear us out as we plead the case for this amazing LP.


    By 1988 there was a lot more competition in the rap game - Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions, Eric B. & Rakim, Ice-T and many more had given Hollis, Queens' prodigal sons lots of competition. But Joe, Darryl, and Jay were still at the top of their game, and hip-hop fans should never let this classic - chiefly produced by their Queens neighbor, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Davy D[MX] - get lost in their crates.


    For starters, the album's first single, "Run's House" b/w "Beats To The Rhyme" is arguably the most powerful one-two punch of the trio's career, showing contenders to the rap throne that they could still destroy a beat, tag-teaming with power at any speed. Not to be lost in the shuffle, fans were also reminded on both sides that Jam-Master Jay remained one of the world's best DJs, flexing the pinnacle of what would be called "turntablism" a decade later. Both songs show a musical telepathy between all three that has rarely been equaled.


    The second single, "Mary, Mary," driven by an infectious Monkees sample, took a different approach, shrewdly ensuring that pop fans who jumped on the Raising Hell bandwagon had something to chew on. But, like "Walk This Way," the song wasn't just bubblegum - there was an edge to it, and the lyrical gymnastics were very real. It wasn't selling out, it was allowing fans to buy in. "Papa Crazy," driven in concept and by a sample from the Temptations' "Papa Was A Rolling Stone," followed a similar pop-leaning path.


    Overall, the lyrical content on the album was a step up from the group's first three LPs. It's easy to infer, looking back, that they were feeling the heat from their younger competitors in the rap game. The genre was changing fast, and they were up to the challenge. On cuts like "Radio Station," they bring substance to the grooves, by attacking Black Radio for its continual denigration of rap. "Tougher Than Leather" reminds the world that they were still the Kings of Rock, with hard guitars to drive the point home. And "They Call Us Run-DMC" and "Soul To Rock And Roll" both bring things back to their early days, with sure-fire park jam rhymes and killer cuts.


    Tougher Than Leather, which went platinum up against a lot of competition, perfectly bookends the '80s output of one of the decade's most important groups. It encompasses the full range of the trio's capabilities and reminds us that Run-DMC should never be forgotten as both pioneers and party-rockers. And so, we say, long live Joe, Darryl, and Jay!

    Let 'Em Roll

    During the Blue Note 75th anniversary celebration the label released 100 essential Blue Note LPs and asked New York Times readers what titles they'd like to see make the list. This album is one of five new reissues that were hand-selected by Blue Note President, Don Was, based on New York Times reader recommendations.


    In an unusual setting for a groove/soul jazz setting, B3 organist extraordinaire big John Patton creates a band around himself that includes Grant Green, drummer Otis Finch, and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson. It's truly weird to think of vibes on a groove date, but the way Patton's understated playing works, and the way Green is literally all things to all players, Hutcherson's role is not only a clearly defined one, but adds immeasurably to both depth and texture on this date.


    What also makes this possible is the symbiotic relationship between Patton and Green. There is a double groove conscious swing happening on every track here, from the bluesed-out slip and slide of the title track which opens the record to a killer version of Hank Mobley's The Turnaround, which expands the blues vibe into solid soul territory because of Hutcherson's ability to play pianistically and slip into the funk groove whenever necessary. Green's deadly in his solo on the track, shimmering arpeggios through Patton's big fat chords and chunky hammering runs.


    Also notable are Patton's own tunes, the most beautiful of which is Latona, a floating Latin number with a killer salsa rhythm in 6/8. As Patton vamps through the chorus, Green slips in one of his gnarliest solos ever. It begins with a groove like run in the hard bop blues and then shoves itself into overdrive, capturing the cold sweat of a Bola Sete or Wes Montgomery in his groove years. But when Green goes for the harmonic edges, all bets are off: Hutcherson lays out, and he and Patton go running to the bridge and bring the melody back just in time to take it out.


    This is one of the least appreciated of Patton's records, and there's no reason for it; it is great.

    Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins, a true poet who invented most of his lyrics on the spot and never seemed to run out of new ideas, was a blues giant of post-war blues whose style was rooted in pre-war Texas traditions. While he cranked up his amp to fierce proportions when performing for his friends at Houston juke joints, producers who recorded him for the so-called folk-blues market usually insisted that he use an acoustic guitar for more "authentic" results. Either way, Lightnin' seldom made a bad record, and this June 4, 1963, session on which he played acoustic was among his finest, thanks much to the sensitive support of bassist Leonard Gaskin and drummer Herbie Lovelle, who did a remarkable job of following his irregular bar patterns and abrupt song endings.

    Superior Catholic Finger (On Sale)

    Starting with a random snippet of evangelist preaching isn't necessarily the newest of touches in music, but putting it at the beginning of a track called Monster Lust has its own appeal. Creed's second solo album was his conscious return to the more zoned-and-stoned style of Chrome, though given how there was a fair amount of that on X-Rated Fairy Tales it would be more accurate to say that on Finger Creed just decided to let everything run riot. Tempos are often more stretched out than before, effects are tweaked and then tweaked again; in short, it's everything that a lot of rock music both mainstream and underground in 1988 was generally avoiding. With new drummer Ted Preuss helping out with returning bassist Duran, Creed leads his merry men into another fantastic bout of aggro-death-science-fiction snarl. Creed's low, vicious voice perfectly suits his abrasive feedback and more, while the rhythm section can both pound out things in a metal-punk style or just go with the flow. Who Cares is one of the best in the latter vein, with heavily flanged drums mixing with the simple but effective basslines as Creed goes off with both guitar and distorted vocals. Thick blasts of feedback that fill up the mix in both rhythm and soloing often remain the way of things for Creed; Too Bad, with its quick, almost punky verses, is a great example of him at his most crazed. The title track is one of Creed's best, a slow-and-low number with another great taking-off-to-Mars solo from the band and some disturbing rumbles down deep in the bass. Sometimes things maybe get a bit lost along the way -- The Cookie Jar descends into some aimless bits before picking up the groove again -- but otherwise Creed once again is flying high.

    Listen Like Thieves on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Breakthrough 1985 Album Charted Three Great Singles


    Australian Band Finds Its Groove With Bluesy Grooves, Pop Hooks


    Includes "What You Need," "Listen Like Thieves," and "Kiss the Dirt"


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    True to the title of the record's smash single, INXS gives you what you need on Listen Like Thieves. Originally released in 1985, the breakthrough album marked the group's deserved entrance into the mainstream radio sphere and commercial charts. With its sound honed from prior records, INXS develops an enviably balanced combination of dance grooves, bluesy persuasion, acoustic framing, and pop bluster on this batch of supremely catchy fare, equally memorable for its melodic nature and stylistic fusion.


    Working with producer Chris Thomas (John Cale, Pete Townshend, Roxy Music), INXS expands its versatility and reach. Vocalist Michael Hutchence, too, comes into his own, singing more confidently, soulfully, and warmly than in the past. While avoiding cheap imitation, the Aussies turn to the Rolling Stones as influences, churning out thick riffs and slithering rhythms that aim for the hips and stimulate the feet. Hutchence splits the difference between the sexual bravado of Mick Jagger and primal depth of Jim Morrison, and in doing so, establishes himself as an original who's always careful not to overdo anything or overstay his welcome.


    Bolstered by a series of can't-miss singles-the swaggeringly funky "What You Need," sharp thrust of "Listen Like Thieves," and wistful "Kiss the Dirt"-Listen Like Thieves teems with glorious hooks and intertwining instrumentation that cross-pollinates jazz, R&B, new-wave, and pub rock. Honking saxophone lines surge throughout, punctuating the spare chords and driving bridges with an insouciant edge missing from most of the decade's pop. A knack for atmospheric production also plays a large role. On "Shine Like It Does," a majestic moodiness takes hold, while "This Time" gives U2 a run for its money.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, Silver Series' numbered limited edition LP significantly enhances the midband, textural qualities, and ample spaciousness-all previously boxed-in on prior editions. The character of the bass notes, as well as the depth and breathiness of the vocals are also noticeably improved, bringing out the music's personality and dynamics like never before.

    C'est Chic


    Celebrate 35 Years Of Nile Rodgers & Chic!


    Impeccably Mastered From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Release Of This Legendary # 1 Pop, R&B & Dance Album!


    In the early seventies, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were playing in rock
    and soul bands across New York City and the east coast, meeting up with Tony Thompson along the way and forming the rudiments of what would become one of the most
    powerful and successful pop/r&b units ever known as Chic.


    By 1977, they sailed into the top rungs of the charts with their smash debut single
    Dance, Dance, Dance along with the killer funk of their first album simply titled Chic.


    A year later, their fortunes multiplied to the top of the charts with C'est Chic. The
    number one LP was chock full of hit singles, funk madness and probably some of the
    finest rock/funk/soul beats ever waxed in a studio. Featuring the huge chart toppers
    Le Freak and the super soul of I Want Your Love, Chic truly were at the top of their game
    around the world. Along with vocalists Alfa Anderson, Norma Jean Wright and future
    superstar Luther Vandross , Chic was the band of choice for party people, dance clubs
    and radio stations all over with this brilliant album.


    With star power tracks like Happy Man and the stellar instrumental fare of Savoir
    Faire, C'est Chic would become a staple at retail and sell over six million units during its
    first run at retail. Chic's importance is celebrated today as number one bands like Daft
    Punk have paid tribute and collaborated with the funk and dance groove master himself
    , Mr. Nile Rodgers.


    This classic album C'est Chic has been out of print on vinyl for decades .that is
    until now!


    Friday Music is very proud to announce The Chic Original Master Series with the
    first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of C'est Chic. Mastered impeccably by Joe
    "Soul Man" Reagoso from the original Atlantic Records tapes, this limited edition masterpiece is a perfect record for the audiophile medium and will be a much anticipated
    release for this holiday season.


    In addition to the wonderful grooves inside, we are also enclosing the original LP
    cover artwork restored faithfully to further enhance your Chic listening experience.

    Call It What It Is

    Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals have reunited for Call It What It Is, their first record together in nine years.


    Call It What It Is is an incisive, bold, poetic statement that could only come from these long-time musical partners, one of popular music's most essential, cohesive and dynamic ensembles. The standout title track showcases Harper's unmatched ability to blend the personal and political. Invoking the names of Trayvon Martin, Ezell Ford, and Michael Brown over an agitated blues riff, Harper cuts to the quick: "There's good cops / bad cops / white cops / black cops / call it what it is / Murder." The genre-spanning collection contains many highlights including the sun-kissed groove of Shine and the album's swaggering lead track When Sex Was Dirty.


    It had been seven years since Ben Harper last played a show with the Innocent Criminals, so when the time came to reunite for a live tour in 2015, the band-percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates, and guitarist Michael Ward-quickly discovered that Harper had more in mind than simply revisiting the group's prodigious song catalogue. In fact, Harper had been quietly amassing material for a new record and the first recording sessions were scheduled to begin even before the rehearsals for their triumphant four-night sold-out reunion run at the Fillmore in San Francisco last March.


    "I thought we would be more energized and revitalized by thinking outside the box and starting with new material in the studio before we dug into the old stuff," said Harper of the reunion album. "It was meant to be a signpost that we're here to forge new ground musically and personally."

    Inventions

    After releasing the excellent double A single for 'No Expression/Alone' the other week, it was very nice indeed to get my first listen of 'Inventions' from The Sufis - an album that comes in collaboration from arguably two of the most interesting labels out there at the minute in Ample Play and Burger Records.


    ...After receiving critical acclaim for their debut last year, the psych-pop band from Nashville, Tennessee, which is made up of Calvin Laporte and Evan Smith, are back and have expanded their pop sound with great results on their latest offering.


    Kicking off with 'All Of The Time', the band transport you back in time. With the groove and thunderous drum role, there is more than a hint of 'Revolver' and tracks like 'Taxman' in its sound, although the record has a lot more to it than just that. Short sharp bursts of ingenious songwriting are littered all over the record. The harmonica and cymbal crashing led beauty of 'Most Peculiar Happening Cat' or the floating melody of 'Wallflower' are great examples of this. In fact, it's worth noting that only one song on the album actually runs over the 3 minute mark. These guys don't do epic - but they make great tunes.


    The album is a collection of great ideas all captured beautifully in a style of their own. Using old school equipment and effects they've invented themselves, the sound is impressive, with an array of instrumentation being used throughout. Personal favourites are many on the album and 'I'll Come To See You' and the more up tempo 'Expressions', which is probably the most rocking track on the LP, are excellent. 'The End', where the maraca beat changes to tambourines is nothing short of quality, as trumpet, piano and excellent guitar work thrown into the mix make this and 'Gotta Get Away' my personal picks - although to be honest it's pretty difficult to choose with so many great songs.


    Fans of the first record will not be disappointed one bit. In fact, the band have stepped it up another level on 'Inventions' and this is an album that you will definitely want to get your hands on. Another sold out vinyl? I think so.

    Pure McCartney (Box Set)

    Pure McCartney, a new compilation of his solo, Wings and Fireman work, celebrates that fact, showcasing 67 highlights from one of the most-revered catalogues in music - from 'McCartney' in 1970, his debut solo album, right through to 'Hope For The Future', his 2014 track taken from 'Destiny', the most-anticipated video game of the last decade. Not only is 'Pure McCartney' a monumental mix tape of some of popular music's most memorable moments from 1970 to the present day, it also features curios for the super fans and some of Paul's personal favourites-all handpicked by the man himself.


    Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to, Paul says of this project.


    Maybe it's to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home or at a party with friends? So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse playlists from various periods of my long and winding career."


    As a songwriter Paul has never stood still, dipping his toe in countless genres and styles. 'Pure McCartney' is testament to that fact. From the song writing master class of 'Maybe I'm Amazed' and adventurous, three-songs-in-one of 'Band On The Run' to the irresistible groove of 'Say Say Say' and ahead-of-its-time electronica of 'Temporary Secretary', described by NME when compiling a list of the greatest ever songs as not so much ahead of its time, but out of it altogether", 'Pure McCartney' charts the unstoppable adventures of McCartney's unique and eclectic song writing talents and shines a light on his post-Beatles artistic achievements.


    The word 'career' is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job, says Paul, reflecting on the 'Pure McCartney' tracklisting. It pleases me, and often amazes me, that I've been involved in the writing and recording of so many songs, each of them so different from the others.


    Paul's unparalleled career has seen his music break global chart records, win countless awards, fill stadiums around the world and become the soundtrack to millions of people's lives across generations.

    Sounds Like This

    With its delightfully vibrant blend of inventive musicality and genre-blurring reach, Sounds Like This sees ALO operating with fresh verve and vitality, their always-kaleidoscopic funk pop 'n roll aglow with exceptionally ebullient songcraft and deliriously danceable grooves.


    The California-based band's fourth Brushfire Records release showcases their unfettered passion, wit, and imagination while simultaneously exploring hitherto uncharted musical terrain. Invigorated by an unstructured approach to the studio process, ALO have accessed new avenues of resourcefulness, resulting in a truly distinctive collection of songs that adroitly captures all the glorious ingenuity and adventure of the band's legendary live sets.


    In April of 2011, ALO convened at San Francisco's Mission Bells studio with no plans other than to make some music together. With studio owner/longtime collaborator David Simon-Baker assisting behind the board, the band opted to take the same improvisational tack towards recording as they do on stage. Any distinctions between pre-production and real recording would be shed, allowing for ALO's instinctive spontaneity to make it to track.


    ALO let their imagination run free, both musically and lyrically, resulting in such larger-than-life highlights as the Old West flight of fancy, "Cowboys and Chorus Girls," the self-explanatory glitterball workout, "Room For Bloomin" and at the heart of the album, the raucous reverie for days past, "Blew Out The Walls. Where prior albums featured songs penned individually and then arranged by the band, this time out, ALO were determined that their collective spirit inform every groove.

    Sound Of Change

    The Sound of Change can't come from external forces, it has to emanate from within. For Dirty Heads, evolution beyond their reggae-rock roots has developed over time and is manifested on their new album "Sound of Change." Due out summer 2014 via Five Seven Music, the album boasts some of the groups' most diverse and ambitious work to date. "Sound of Change" takes a literal meaning with the production of this album, as the band links up with Grammy award winning producer Supa Dups (Nina Sky, Bruno Mars), Buddah Shampoo (Ty Dolla $ign), Niles (of hip hop duo, The Cataracs), Ward 21 (311, Major Lazer reggae collaborators) and long-time friend and collaborator, Rome (Sublime).


    The feel-good vibe associated with their sound was not forgotten. Sonically, "Sound of Change" amps up the groundwork laid by previous albums. Fine-tuned alternative choruses work harmoniously with hip-hop influenced production that seams the songs together. Universal themes of compassion, reflection and happiness are at the core of "Sound of Change." "We wanted the songs on this album to touch on the things we deeply care about and the people we are inside" front man Jared (Dirty J) Watson asserts, "but then we want to address the other side - when the weekend comes and we need to let go and just rage." Who can't relate to that feeling?


    Vocalist/Guitarist Dustin Bushnell (Duddy B) is constantly looking to connect the dots between the live show with the album tracks, often mentally mapping out the live elements as the songs are being recorded. For the touring cycle surrounding the release "Sound of Change" the band plans to bring a live show that will energetically compliment each new track. Dirty Heads have racked up their miles bringing that live experience to fans across the globe for over a decade. "Now that our lives are touring we get to see the world," both Watson and Bushnell agree, "we're taking stories and vibes from around the world and making this album is the culmination of that."


    The band's breakout 2008 album "Any Port In The Storm" included the chart-topping hit track "Lay Me Down" which features current Sublime frontman, Rome. The track had an incredible run for eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts, laying a solid foundation for their follow up sophomore album "Cabin By The Sea" which was released in 2012. Dirty Heads then began their musical metamorphosis with their 2013 acoustic album "Home - Phantoms Of Summer," allowing time for their metamorphosis embodied in "Sound of Change." Their previous work featured contributions from talent such as Del The Funky Homosapien, Matisyahu, Rome (Sublime) and guitar legend Slash.


    "Sound of Change" is a melting pot of all the band members' experiences and musical persuasions, addressing both serious and lighthearted subject matter in their signature way. On the lighter side of the spectrum, "Burn Slow" (Produced by Rome, featuring rapper, Tech N9ne) showcases the hip-hop oriented side of the band. With anthemic choruses and a feel-good aura, Watson boasts the song is the perfect soundtrack for those times when you're "having a good time, going out with friends and realize that sometimes you just need to chill." The retro sound and sexy lyrics of "Hear You Comin," highlights Watson's soaring vocals in its hook. The first single, the metaphorical "My Sweet Summer" (produced by Niles from The Cataracs) is, in reality, a song for all seasons. An undeniable groove underlines the lyrical lament. The title track "Sound of Change" is the key manifestation of the artistic maturation of the band. "The world is always changing political and social outlooks and on a broader scale, look at the changes within yourself" Watson reflects, "the song is about embracing the change life is going to bring no matter what, because that change is inevitable." Though there is diversity on "Sound of Change," as a body of work, it is cohesive in a way only Dirty Heads can achieve.


    As a full six-piece unit, frontmen Watson and Bushnell are joined by keyboardist/vocalist Shawn Hagood, percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa and bassist David Foral. This lineup is hell-bent on grabbing new ears with "Sound of Change." Their own journey can be heard within the album- all you have to do is sit back and listen.

    Spitballin'

    The DAVE STEWART-produced SPITBALLIN' would never have happened if not for one Twitter message that turned STEWART's world upside down. STEWART has seen and done it all, but none of it prepared him for what he would hear from THOMAS LINDSEY. "I read it and clicked on the link," STEWART recalls. "And there he was, singing something on a YouTube video. I don't remember what it was but there was no music. He was singing a cappella. And I went, 'Holy crap!'" STEWART got in touch with his young admirer and invited him to send examples of his original material.


    "It was really amazing stuff. So I asked if he wanted to come out to Los Angeles and sing three songs unaccompanied before my show at the Troubadour," STEWART says. Following their live debut, STEWART and LINDSEY began writing together by sending audio files back and forth between L.A. and Louisiana. Working long distance seemed to bring them closer as they built a catalog of songs.


    Their common ground proved as lush as Delta marshland. A down-and-dirty delta guitar riff. A thumping drum beat. And a stunning vocal intro, urgent, haunted, earthy and spiritual, with blues-drenched filigrees, a vibrato that shocks like an electric current, a range that defies not just convention but gravity itself. Backed by STEWART's distorted voodoo guitar licks, LINDSEY opens "Leave This Town" in free tempo and then a swampy groove kicks in--just guitar and drums, raw and wild. "Two People" unfolds over a stomping beat that leads to a long vamp over which Lindsey improvises with hair-raising intensity and finesse. Churchy echoes permeate "When Dogs Run," with a mournful organ providing the backdrop to STEWART's Pop Staples-style guitar tremolo. "Alcohol" boils down to organ and LINDSEY's voice recounting a riveting elegy for someone who was "lost to alcohol."


    Some of the stories behind the lyrics on these songs are sad, but true and some more fanciful. To write "Crocodile," for instance, LINDSEY admits "I tried to write a song that would seem like something from a shoe commercial! I had this image of a woman in bad-ass crocodile boots, walking down the street. That's how that song formed."
