    Scream Above The Sounds (Pre-Order)

    Twenty years after their debut 'Word Gets Around' and six #1 albums later, Stereophonics are set to release their new album 'Scream Above The Sounds' on Parlophone Records.


    Their 10th studio album, 'Scream Above The Sounds' follows 'Keep The Village Alive' which went straight to #1 when it was released in 2015 - their sixth chart-topper after 'Performance and Cocktails' (1999), 'Just Enough Education To Perform' (2001) 'You Gotta Go There To Come Back' (2003), 'Language. Sex. Violence. Other?' (2005) and 'Pull The Pin' (2007).


    Stereophonics consists of founding members Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar) and Richard Jones (bass) along with Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums). Long-term keyboardist Tony Kirkham joins the band for live shows.


    Kelly said of the songwriting process that he began to write "big, anthemic songs that are rallying against those anxious feelings that have flooded through cities. Every song offers a sense of release," he says. "Even when there's nostalgia, fear or anxiety, they're still all offering hope and room to manoeuvre."


    The first single 'All In One Night' represents the band's affection for the melancholy. Set to a consistent mid-paced rhythm which evokes a nocturnal motorway drive, it finds the narrator's life taking a dramatic turn as night brightens to day. Influenced by the Sebastian Schipper film 'Victoria', it's a song that had an unusual genesis - Kelly started it when the band had an unscheduled day's stay in China before he finished it back home in London. Even the atmospheric call of the chorus was fortuitous, being an adaptation of a vocal exercise he was using.


    'Scream Above The Sounds' was primarily recorded in the band's HQ in west London with a further session at RAK Studios. Created with the help of regular collaborator Jim Lowe, it's an album in which creative sonic touches add to the band's emphasis on songwriting and melody.

    The Decca Sound - The Analogue Years (Box Set)

    In the late 1940s, the pioneering Decca recording engineers perfected a new set of microphone techniques that allowed the full range of frequencies to be
    fully heard by listeners for the first time, and the term 'full frequency range recording' was launched. It was a major revolution in sound quality, and the
    beginnings of high fidelity. Perfected with the birth of stereo in the mid-1950s, Decca's 'Full Frequency Stereophonic Sound' became a worldwide hallmark
    of sonic excellence and a golden age of classical recorded music was born. THE ANALOGUE YEARS presents a 50-Album overview across 6 LPs of the celebrated international recordings that emerged from the London-based record label in that pre-digital era.

    Muddy Waters At Newport 1960


    The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Continues!


    Muddy Waters Masterwork Live Album! In Stereo!


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records Stereo Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago and Mississippi Delta blues tunes
    have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.


    With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began his career cutting early sides for defunct labels
    before landing in Chicago in the early forties, where he began a long climb to the top of the blues world, later cutting a series of
    hit sessions for Aristocrat which became Chess Records. Phil and Leonard Chess knew they had a kingpin on their hands when
    Muddy started his endless stream of blues smashes. The label honored the man with his first live album simply titled Muddy Waters
    At Newport 1960. Recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival, Muddy drove the crowd into a frenzy with his famous guitar licks and his
    Delta growl, truly a thrilling presence on the stage.


    Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary James Cotton on harp and the masterful Otis Spann on piano, Muddy
    Waters At Newport 1960 would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day Chicago blues history.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits I Got My Brand On You, Muddy continues to rock the crowd through a
    treasure trove of 8 more blues champions which made this one of the most important live recordings of all time. The album features
    classic gems like his classics Got My Mojo Working, Baby Please Don't Go, and I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Noted for his stellar
    guitar work, pretty much introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, Muddy Waters At
    Newport 1960 became truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues guitarists for years like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat
    and The Rolling Stones. Muddy broke down barriers for millions of music fans worldwide to enjoy rock and blues, making him along
    with John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Robert Johnson one of the first pioneers of the blues and rock genre.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. That is why we are so
    very proud to announce another installment in The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary
    masterpiece Muddy Waters At Newport 1960.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry) for the first time on audiophile vinyl from
    the Chess stereophonic tapes, Muddy Waters At Newport 1960 will truly become one of the most important and historical 180 Gram
    Audiophile Vinyl titles to be released in quite some time.


    To further celebrate this first time authorized stereophonic audiophile vinyl LP, we enhance this limited edition masterwork
    with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as a rare inside gatefold photo of the man who helped
    fuse blues and rock music for millions of music lovers across the globe.

    Girl Happy


    Anniversary Limited Edition


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Soundtrack Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation!!!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And Pressed At R.T.I.


    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during
    the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys.
    These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.


    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his
    contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, forever etching "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name.


    In 1965 after a plethora of chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, Elvis Presley continued to build his
    marquee value even further while starring in a staggering amount of feature motion pictures. More incredible fame followed as
    the Girl Happy movie starring Elvis Presley became a top box office smash. The 60's beach movie soundtrack album also was a
    blockbuster as it rose to the top ten charts, making this his 22nd smash album in a row! Both the Girl Happy movie and soundtrack
    LP truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.


    Filled with more hits than a Ft. Lauderdale jukebox, the Girl Happy album takes off with several smashes in a row, including
    the classic title track rocker Girl Happy featuring Scotty Moore's trail blazing guitar work and the chart hit single Do the Clam. More
    soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful hit single ballad Puppet on a String and the rockin' I've Got to Find My Baby, which
    truly made the album a treasure trove of hits. The album also features the stellar rock blues of Cross My Heart and Hope to Die and
    the brilliant Red West composition You'll Be Gone. In total, the album showcases 12 important Elvis Presley recordings which have
    truly gone on to become international classics.


    In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce
    the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Soundtrack Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic Girl Happy by Elvis Presley.

    Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early
    fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he
    had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar
    unlike the world has ever known.


    The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed the legend to a
    long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!


    From the remainder of the 1960's into the late 1970's, Elvis Presley would release many more hit albums, smash singles and movies
    before his untimely passing in 1977. Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, RCA Victor awarded their superstar artist and his fans
    with the King's fifth greatest hits collection Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5.


    Featuring a treasure trove of his most familiar top charting hit singles Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 went on to achieve gold status and
    become one of his most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful rock and roll albums.


    Thanks to his finest rock smashes like Burning Love, Moody Blue, In the Ghetto and his landmark Memphis session groover Suspicious
    Minds, this collection of Elvis Presley's biggest hits were just what the fans were screaming for, and the entire album was built around the
    framework of his rocking trademark sound. The 1984 album also was another blockbuster for The King truly proving once again that his career
    was unlike any other in music history.


    Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 also included some of his finest ballads like Kentucky Rain and his monumental NBC TV Comeback Special
    smash If I Can Dream. In total, the album showcases ten important Elvis Presley hit recordings which have truly gone on to become definitive
    classics by any measure of popular music.

    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl Of Bobby Darin's Greatest Hits


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Rare Stereophonic Atlantic Records Tapes


    Features The Rare Early Alternate White Cover Artwork From 1961


    The legendary Bobby Darin was truly an entertainer of iconic stature. At a very young age he learned how to play a plethora of instruments. This rudimentary love of music followed him closely throughout his early career where he teamed up with future superstar Don Kirshner (The Monkees/Kansas) and began their publishing and writing partnership in New York City at the Brill Building. In the late 50's he ultimately cut his first #1 hit single Splish Splash, soon following it up with other huge sides like the phenomenal Mack The Knife for Atlantic Records, kick-starting the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar, troubadour and entertainer career unlike the world has ever known.


    In 1961 after many chart topping pop albums and a bevy of hit singles and awards, more fame followed as the brass at Atlantic Records honored their young superstar Bobby Darin with his first hits collection, the top ten charter The Bobby Darin Story . The album was a blockbuster at retail, making this a crossover hit with both pop and jazz audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit.


    Filled with more hits than a jukebox, the amazing album cooks with smashes like Dream Lover, his early Decca Records hit Early In The Morning, the smooth sounds of Beyond The Sea, plus more hits like the rockin' Lazy River and Plain Jane which truly makes this Lp a treasure trove of Bobby Darin classics.


    In total, the album showcases 12 important recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time. In honor of the Man, the Music and the Legend, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Atlantic Records classic greatest hits collection The Bobby Darin Story

    Featuring a treasure trove of his most familiar hit singles like his smash hit Hurt and the great Solitaire, From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennesee went on to achieve gold status and become one of his last albums that he would record before his untimely passing.


    Thanks to his more smashes like If You Talk In Your Sleep, Songman, and his landmark soul crooner Help Me , this collection of Elvis Presley's recordings were just what the fans were screaming for, as the entire album was built around the framework of his rocking trademark Memphis sound. The 1976 album also was another blockbuster for The King truly proving once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.

He utilized his short time on earth to share his talents with millions of fans with his records, songwriting, concerts, movies and television shows.


    His fortunes carried further into the late fifties as he broke even more ground, creating one of the most beautiful spiritual crossover holiday hit albums of all time with his masterpiece The 25th Day Of December.

    Mastered From The Blue Sky Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl & Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Featured Musicians: Pine Top Perkins, Johnny Winter, Jimmy Rogers & Big Walter Horton


    Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one
    of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing
    guitar, his unique vocal prowess and of course his stellar list of classic
    Chicago and Mississippi Delta blues tunes have all gone on to influence
    generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.


    With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi
    native was soon being discovered by a whole new legion of rock and roll
    fans thanks to his songs being recorded by folks like The Rolling Stones
    and Johnny Winter.


    As the stars aligned, Johnny Winter would go on to produce and
    play on his mentor's masterpiece I'm Ready. Featuring an all-star band
    with the likes of the legendary Jimmy Rogers on guitar, Walter Horton on
    harmonica, and the masterful Pine Top Perkins on piano, Muddy Waters'
    I'm Ready would go on to become one of the his most revered albums
    earning him a Grammy Award in 1978.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits I'm Ready,
    Muddy continues to rock the house through a treasure trove of 8 more
    blues champions which made this one of the most important recordings
    of all time. The album features classic gems like his classics Rock Me,
    Screamin' and Cryin', and I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary bluesman
    Muddy Waters. That is why we are so very proud to announce another
    installment in The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl

    Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings bring you this remastered and improved pressing so that a whole new generation of audiophiles and even casual music lovers can discover for themselves the wizardry, wit and wonder that is Music for Bang, Baaroom and Harp!


    Remastering and lacquer cutting by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound from the original 3-track tapes


    200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings!


    Little did any of us who were involved in the planning and recording of Music for Bang, Baaroom and Harp know, back in 1958, what an impact this album would have on the record industry and how it would effect my career, writes Dick Schory, about the audiophile instrumental classic, the first stereophonic recording in the industry to be classified a Best Seller.


    Now, revel in the enhanced clarity and sonic richness of a 200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings, and remastering and lacquer cutting by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, giving this classic a fresh, vibrant appeal. The superb remastering from the original 3-track master tapes brings out subtleties of the instruments, arrangements, performance and ambiance of Chicago's Orchestra Hall lacking from the original pressing and subsequent versions.
    >[?
    The concept for this album is simple: Dozens of standard and exotic percussive instruments (re: manifold from a 1946 Chevrolet) were employed in original and standard tunes arranged by Schory, Bobby Christian, Mike Simpson, Willis Charkovsky and Skitch Henderson, who at the time was musical director for NBC's Tonight Show. Three tracks are of particular note: the quirky Tiddley Winks and the exotic Baia and Typee. The jacket, depicting Schory poking out from a pile of instruments, is a classic of LP art.


    The recording, utilizing RCA Victor Record's Red Seal Classical Division's equipment - the same used to record the Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston Symphony orchestras at the time - was recorded in Chicago's Orchestra Hall on June 2 and 3, 1958. Two custom Ampex 300-3 half-inch 3-track tape recorders, running at 15 and 30 inches a second, captured the performances by eight percussionists together with other performers from the Chicago Symphony on piano, string bass, guitar, banjo and harp.

    After Bathing At Baxter's


    First Time 180 Gram Sterophonic Clear Vinyl


    Mastered By Joe Reagoso


    Pressed At R.T.I.


    1967 was an amazing year for rock music, and San Francisco was the place to be for legendary classic rock bands like Jefferson Airplane. After their groundbreaking Takes Off and Surrealistic Pillow LPs (both on Friday Music), Jefferson Airplane continued their gold and platinum magic and delivered the monumental classic After Bathing At Baxter's.


    Featuring the brilliant musicianship of Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Marty Balin, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and Spencer Dryden, this new LP would become one of their most important albums, as well as further developing the Airplane into the superstar act they are to this day. With a groundswell of support from the hip record buying public to major airplay at both underground FM and pop radio stations, the LP was received incredibly well. Featuring stellar radio and fan favorites like The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil, Won't You Try/ Saturday Afternoon, and several other tunes which would go on to become rock music anthems for the turbulent 60's. Even more stellar album tracks like Martha and Watch Her Ride soon became standard Airplane classics in the years to follow. "Jam bands" began with groups like Jefferson Airplane. Therefore it's no surprise to hear the wonderful workouts by dual guitarists Jorma Kaukonen and Paul Kantner along with Grace Slick and Marty Balin's power vocals plus the bass of Jack Casady and Spencer Drydens' drum work on this masterwork.


    Friday Music is honored to present another exciting installment in our Jefferson Airplane 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their masterpiece After Bathing At Baxter's LP. Their third RCA album showcases a very hip band that has stood the test of time now for over five decades. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna/ Grateful Dead), this first time audiophile stereophonic vinyl release will become one of the more important albums in your classic rock collection.


    To enhance your Airplane listening pleasure, the LP will be pressed for a short time on CLEAR vinyl at RTI, featuring new liner notes from Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady in a first time gatefold cover, including a 12 by 24 graphic insert art, which truly help make this an even more rewarding event for 2016.

    The Best Of King Curtis

    Limited Anniversary Edition


    Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl


    Mastered Impeccably From The Atco Records Stereophonic Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    King Curtis will be forever known as one of the leading voices of the 60's soul renaissance and truly one of the more championed musicians during his short lifetime. Thanks to today's respect and care given to his music by a whole new generation of musicians and fans, King Curtis forever reigns as one of soul's pioneers. Much like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, and other superstars before him, Curtis Owsley (King Curtis) had the necessary ingredients of stellar musicianship and songwriting acumen which successfully reached across all gospel, soul, rock and pop genres.


    King Curtis created some of his greatest sides ever for ATCO Records, where he spent his time on earth creating some of the most masterful and funkiest soul music ever waxed. In 1968, he was honored with his first greatest hits collection simply titled "The Best of King Curtis." This stunning array of his most memorable hit singles and stellar album staples continues to illustrate how important a force he was then and still is today, over four decades since!


    "The Best of King Curtis" features a heavy menu of his finest moments like the funk infused "Harper Valley P.T.A." and Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her", the definitive balladry of Ben E. King's "Spanish Harlem", and of course his chart toppers "Ode To Billie Joe" "Soul Serenade" and a definitive tribute to his friend Otis Redding with "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay" which truly opened up a worldwide audience to this sorely missed genius.


    This 1968 Greatest Hits LP hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades... that is until now! Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Best Of King Curtis. Mastered impeccably from the original ATCO Records tapes by Joe "Philly Soul" Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain.


    To further enhance your listening enjoyment, we have also included the original artwork elements by Loring Eutemey and the classic photo of King Curtis by Stephen Paley.


    The soul lives on here at the Friday Music label, and as with our recent original pioneering soul albums from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett, The Spinners and others, we feel this stunning King Curtis 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl will be a much anticipated and welcomed release to all the soul, funk and rock audiophile vinyl fans.

    Sid Vicious may have become the Punk icon, at least Glen Matlock - original bass player for the Sex Pistols could really play, wrote ten out of the twelve songs on the classic Never Mind The Bollocks and he's still alive.


    Over the years he has continued to tour and now he is presenting us his new solo album, Born Running. This isn't a Sex Pistols rip-off but a collection of rolling Rockers with a poignant smile similar to Joey Ramone's solo work. Produced by Jim Lowe (of Stereophonics, Foo Fighters, and Manic Street Preachers), whatever Matlock might lack in originality he more than makes up for sincerity.

    Here Ansermet directs the OSR in a performance of Stravinsky's The Firebird. It is the composer's first major ballet, brought him world fame and continues to gain in popularity to this day. The story - which combines the motifs of several Russian fairy tales with a magic Firebird, a vanishing castle, an evil magician, and a hero who saves the maiden - inspired Stravinsky to write some of his most fascinating and mysterious music.



    The OSR is fully equal to its fine reputation. Ernest Ansermet's competence as an interpreter is evident throughout.



    Acoustically, this pressing offers advantages over the original. Here the orchestra resonates with a full, natural and mellow sound that blossoms into a veritable garden of tonality extending around and behind the loudspeakers.
    This new edition of Stravinsky's The Firebird is a true stereophonic delight.

    About Speakers Corner



    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.

    Johnny Cash Greatest Hits Volume 1

    First Time on Audiophile Vinyl


    Gatefold Cover presentation of his classic 1967 multi-platinum Greatest Hits LP!!!


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray from the original Columbia Records tapes


    Manufactured at R.T.I.


    Johnny Cash was born during the great depression into a poor family in Arkansas. At a very young age he worked on the family farm
    and experienced many of life's struggles. This is also the time he would develop his love for music, family and the Bible, which followed him
    closely throughout his long career. In the early fifties after spending time in the Air Force, he moved to Memphis, became friends with folks
    like Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, and ultimately cut some sides at Sun Studios which became the catalyst
    that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar, troubadour and humanitarian unlike the world has ever known.


    The folks at Columbia Records knew that this young fellow named Johnny Cash was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed
    the legend to a long term deal, and his first Columbia singles like his prolific Don't Take Your Guns to Town forever etched "The Man In Black"
    trademark to his name.


    In 1967 after many chart topping country and pop albums and a bevy of hit singles and Grammy Awards, more fame followed as the
    brass at Columbia Records honored their journeyman Johnny Cash with his first hits collection, the multi-platinum Johnny Cash's Greatest
    Hits Volume 1.


    The album was a blockbuster as it topped the charts, making this a crossover hit with both country and pop audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit.
    Filled with more hits than a roadside jukebox, the amazing album takes off with the classic duet with wife June Carter Cash and
    Grammy Award winner Jackson. This chart topping single is followed up by one of his most famous songs the number one I Walk the Line.


    More treasures follow with the country belter Understand Your Man and Cash's own hit interpretation of Orange Blossom Special, which truly
    made the album a treasure trove of hits.
    More greatest hits follow as the LP features a nice helping of solid smashes like Ring of Fire, Five Feet High and Rising, the aforementioned Don't Take Your Guns to Town, and probably one of the first Bob Dylan covers ever with his haunting It Ain't Me Babe. In total, the
    album showcases eleven important Johnny Cash recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time.


    In honor of the Man, the Music and the Legend, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Columbia Records classic Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits Volume 1 by Johnny Cash.
