    Live At The Marquee 1986

    Limited Edition 140 Gram White Vinyl

    Back in the mid '80s, Andy Scott, guitarist, songwriter and producer was living in London carving out a new career for himself after forming Sweet who had no less than 13 UK Top 20 hit singles from 1971-1978 when he bumped into his old agent and from that meeting he decided to put together the next generation of the band.

    Mick Tucker on drums, Paul Mario Day (ex Iron Maiden) on vocals, Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep) on keyboards and Mal McNulty (Slade) on bass and Andy of course on lead guitar. It was one hell of a line up and a band with a much harder edge which is where Andy had always been keen to take Sweet.

    Live At the Marquee was originally released in 1989 even though the concert had been recorded in 1986 prior to the Clubs closure in 1988. Two additional live tracks from that performance have been added as bonus tracks which are available for the very first time on vinyl!

    100% Fun

    Released in 1995, 100% Fun is the fifth album by Alternative Rock musician Matthew Sweet. Matthew Sweet's guitar-dominated, hook-laden power Pop runs through its 12 songs at a swift pace.

    Behind Sweet's bright hooks lies something darker, the self-loathing of Sick Of Myself and the mental manipulation of We're The Same aren't evident from the sound of the record, which obliterates any hidden meanings with its chiming guitars and driving rhythms.

    Sick of Myself was a big hit in 1995, placed in the Mainstream Rock Chart, Modern Rock Tracks, and The Billboard Top 100.

    1. Sick Of Myself
    2. Not When I Need It

    Ben Webster And Sweets Edison

    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes! Only 2500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide!

    The two jazz giants Ben Webster and Harry Sweets Edison had long wanted to record an album together, and in 1962, they did. Although associated with two different orchestras (Edison was with Basie and Webster was with Ellington), these two swing kings found that they had a lot in common.

    This album features both horn men on three medium tempo blues, Better Go, Kitty, and Did You Call Her Today. Other than this, Webster gets two tenor features, contributing absolutely luscious solos on both How Long Has This Been Going On, and My Romance. After listening to these songs, there can be no doubt that Webster is one of the best balladeers jazz has ever produced. Edison gets his moment in the sun too. On the album closer, Sweets plays a wonderful, even fairly modern sounding, rendition of Embraceable You using a Harmon mute. The ballads, enhanced by the wonderful harmonic sense of pianist Hank Jones, are the highlight of this release, and show both Webster and Sweets' unbeatable melodic sense.

    Ben Webster was considered to be on of the three most important 'swing tenors' along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. Known by some as The Brute, he had a tough, raspy and brutal tone on stompes but could deliver warmth and sentiment on softer ballads. Trumpeter Harry Sweets Edison spent his early childhood in Kentucky where he was introduced to music by his uncle. After moving back to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio at the age of 12, he began playing the trumpet with local bands, eventually landing a spot with the Count Basie Orchestra.

    Tenor-saxophonist Ben Webster and trumpeter Harry Sweets Edison, both veterans of the swing era (although associated with different orchestras), had long wanted to record a full album together. The results, a swinging quintet set with pianist Hank Jones, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Clarence Johnston, are quite rewarding. There are two ballad features for the tenor (How Long Has This Been Going on and a beautiful version of My Romance) and one for Edison (Embraceable You) along with three medium-tempo collaborations. Nothing unexpected occurs but the melodic music is quite enjoyable. - Scott Yanow,

    At a time when some are steering jazz up a rather shallow third stream and others are busy digging up its roots, Webster and Edison are only motivated by the sheer love of playing.

    Sweet Heart Sweet Light

    For an artist as consistent as Spiritualized's Jason Spaceman, whose 7th studio album Sweet Heart Sweet Light will see its release on Fat Possum, it's easy to assume that there's a certain effortlessness to the creative process. In fact, the three years since the release of 2008's acclaimed Songs in A&E were some of the roughest imaginable for Jason.

    After a near death from double pneumonia in 2005 it was a slow road to recovery, a process he touched upon on with great grace on the last album. His return to full health saw him release Songs in A&E and mount critically lauded performances of his 1997 game-changer Ladies And Gentlemen....We Are Floating In Space on both sides of the Atlantic.

    However, shortly after recording Sweet Heart Sweet Light in far flung locales such as Los Angeles, Reykavik and Wales, Jason found himself weakened by a degenerative liver disease and was subjected to six months of chemo treatment, a procedure that left him virtually housebound while he mixed the album.

    In a classic case of triumph over tribulation, the resulting album is Spiritualized at their most vibrant; full voiced and utterly sublime. In Jason Spaceman's orbit rock and roll is the salve and listeners will hear all of the epic grandiosity and brain worming melodies for which they're renowned, as well as the gorgeous gospel delium that makes hearing a new Spiritualized album an exhilarating and emotional experience.

    "Hey Jane," an energetic 8+ minutes of rousing organ, glittering guitar fuzz and swirling choirs, is first the single and indication that new album Sweet Heart Sweet Light is another epic body of work from the anthemic master. It's been three years in the making for renowned perfectionist Jason Spaceman and the resulting music captured in this first single, showcases them at their most vibrant and sublime.

    The album also features a first for Spiritualized: Jason is joined by his 11 year old daughter Poppy Spaceman on the starkly beautiful So Long You Pretty Thing for which she also has a writing credit for the opening couplet. Elsewhere on the album is I Am What I Am which was co-written by Jason and Mac Rebennack aka Dr. John.

    Sweet Time

    Formed in 2005 by guitarists and singers Brian Vanderwerf and Jesse Tomlinson, from Twin City contenders the Midnight Evils, as a rollicking but conventional two guitars/bass/and drums lineup, Chooglin' made their offical debut in November of 2005, opening up for Reigning Sound and the Detroit Cobras. The full Chooglin' line-up now consists of Vanderwerf and Tomlinson on guitar and vocals, bassist Paul Diorio, drummer Shawn Walker, trombonists Harold Longley, Steve Erickson and Zach Zins, and trumpet player Bob DeBoer.

    Discovered by Big Legal Mess while playing a show with Fat Possum artists Hezekiah Early and Elmo Williams during the Deep Blues Festival, Chooglin' recorded Sweet Time at Minneapolis' legendary Creation Studios, home of everything from the Trashmen's Surfin Bird and Davd Dudley's Six Days on the Road to the Replacements' Tim and several Husker Du records. With a bleating horn section and ferocious guitar playing, the band is a boogie-rock juggernaut that has the guts and the skills to deliver greasy, proto-Stax soul with as much power and conviction as their relentless, riff-driven rockers.

    Terry Manning is best known as an engineer and producer who spent the '60s and '70s in Memphis working for Ardent and Stax Studios on some of that city's most important records, from Isaac Hayes to Big Star. In 1970 he cut the album Home Sweet Home and it was released on the Stax subsidiary, Enterprise. Originally intended as just a vanity project, Home Sweet Home is now a highly regarded and collectible LP, praised for its innovative studio trickery and Manning's offbeat arrangements, especially on the epic opening 10-minute version of George Harrison's "Savoy Truffle."

    Pianist/composer Duke Pearson leads an all-star group on this run-through of seven of his compositions. The musicians (trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, altoist James Spaulding, Joe Henderson on tenor, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Mickey Roker, and the pianist/leader) are actually more impressive than many of the compositions, although the swinging minor-toned Big Bertha deserved to become a standard. The frameworks are quite intelligent (and everyone doesn't solo on each selection), and the improvisations are concise and clearly related to each tune's melody and mood.

    Sweet Bird of Youth

    An epic collection of garagey, fuzzed-out, indie rock tunes. There are a lot of strange, grandiose pop songs on here, featuring plenty of reverbed and bombastic distorted guitar, some of it even sounding like Bob Mould's Flying V on a couple of tracks. The songs are very layered, with several different things going on over the course of the song. It's quite an achievement that only four bandmembers were able to pull this off. An analog keyboard at one also brought into play, and the interesting aspect is the layers of distortion that blanket the sound it generates, resulting in an almost orchestral feel to the songs it presides over. With this Rock*A*Teens record, Merge Records has yet another great album to feature on its already magnificent roster.

    Sweet Blood Call

    At the time this album was recorded, the particularly intense blues artist Louisiana Red was a protÉgÉ of the Blue Labor/Labor recording empire, which was actually two guys, Kent Cooper and jazz arranger and composer Heiner Stadler. Cooper's involvement with Red led, as in many cases of blues producers and their clients, to co-authorship on some of the songs recorded. Cooper and Stadler regarded Red as an artist cut from the same cloth as John Lee Hooker or Lightning Hopkins, and of the same quality -- meaning an intense, mood-setter of a bluesman with a sizzling improvisatory style. They were certainly accurate in their appraisal of his talent, and their interest in recording Red led to several classic blues albums. The fine studio sound they got on these solo recordings makes for a superior album, and it was the first Red would record unencumbered by a combo backing him up. Every nuance of his playing is captured, and he is definitely the type of blues player who thrives on solo work. He rarely sticks to a formula bar structure and likes to stretch out his licks as if casting out a line for fish, but he isn't a player who just stays on one chord like Hooker often did. One of Red's original blues, in which he describes how his wife died of cancer, has got to set some kind of a record for misery described in a blues song, meaning it is the saddest of the sad.

    and steadily put the new album together through late 2013 and 2014, emerging with
    a mighty slab of superlative sonics, shot through with all the band's inimitable
    signposts and touchstones: huge unison riffage, savage noise/drone, oscillating
    overtones, guitar vs. string counterpoint, inexorable crescendos and scorchedearth

    Following Godspeed's return from a long hiatus at the end of 2010 to begin playing
    live shows again, and with the hugely acclaimed 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!
    release in 2012 marking their first new release in a decade, the group continued to
    perform regularly on their own headlining tours (and as headliners at many leading
    festivals), often including a new multi-movement piece in concert over the past
    couple of years. Known to fans and through live show recordings by the sobriquet
    "Behemoth", GYBE has gradually distilled this new work down to a fastidious and
    uncompromising essence in the studio, with the swing-time swagger of the opening
    unison riff in "Peasantry or 'Light! Inside of Light!'" giving way to increasing
    microtonal divergences and an exhilarating immersion in the harmonic power of
    massed amplified instruments, before collapsing into some of the most visceral and
    unalloyed noise/drone the band has yet committed to tape on "Lambs' Breath" and
    "Asunder, Sweet". The album closes with "Piss Crowns Are Trebled", a 14-minute
    piece of vintage Godspeed, where ascending and descending guitar and violin
    melodies intertwine over gut-rattling distorted bass in 3/4 time, segueing into a
    pummeling four-on-the-floor series of sparkling, soaring crescendos.

    'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress' finds Godspeed in top form; a sterling
    celebration of the band's awesome dialectic, where composition, emotion and
    'note-choice' is inextricable from an exacting focus on tone, timbre, resonance and
    the sheer materiality of sound. The album is available on 180 gram vinyl in a
    gatefold jacket with printed inner dust sleeve and insert poster. Thanks for listening.
