    Takes Off

    Jefferson Airplane Takes Off is the debut album of San Francisco Rock band Jefferson Airplane, released in August 1966. The personnel differs from the later classic lineup and the music is more Folk-Rock than the harder psychedelic sound for which the band later became famous.


    Signe Toly Anderson was the female vocalist and Skip Spence played drums. Both left the group shortly after the album's release and were replaced by Grace Slick and Spencer Dryden, respectively.

    Take Off Your Pants And Jacket


    Mastered For Vinyl And Lacquers Created By Kevin Gray, Cohearent Audio


    Gatefold Jacket With 11 x 11 Insert


    Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is the fourth studio album by the American pop punk band Blink-182. Produced by Jerry Finn, the album was released on June 12, 2001, through MCA Records. The band had spent much of the previous year traveling and supporting the album Enema of the State (1999), which launched the band's mainstream career. The title is a tongue-in-cheek pun on male masturbation (take off your pants and jack it). The cover art has icons for each member of the trio: an airplane (take off), a pair of pants and a jacket. Several different editions were released with additional bonus tracks.


    The album was primarily recorded over three months at Signature Sound in San Diego. During the sessions, MCA executives pressured the band to retain the sound that helped their previous album sell millions. As such, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket continues the pop punk sound that the group honed and made famous, albeit with a heavier tone inspired by groups such as Fugazi and Refused. Regarding lyrics, the album has been referred to as a concept album chronicling adolescence, with songs dedicated to first dates, fighting authority and teenage parties. Due to differing opinions on direction, the trio worked in opposition to one another for the first time, and the sessions sometimes became contentious.


    The album had near-immediate success, becoming the first punk rock-identified record to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 and being certified double platinum within three weeks. The album produced three hit singles - The Rock Show, First Date and Stay Together for the Kids - that were top ten hits on modern rock charts. Critical impressions of the record were generally positive, commending the record's expansion on teenage themes; others viewed this as its weakness. To support the record, the band co-headlined the Pop Disaster Tour with Green Day. A European tour was canceled in the wake of the September 11 attacks. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is the fourth studio album by the American pop punk band Blink-182.

    Los Angeles, California, circa 2001. Rilo Kiley comes into the room. The Echo Park-based songwriters and multi-instrumentalists have an uncanny knack for fashioning pop songs that sound like something you've been humming all your life. The 3-boy/1-girl quartet's picture already appears in several dictionary editions next to the Indie Pop entry. They are skilled. They can go from a swirling, indie-rock opus to a softly strummed, country-tinged ballad of heartbreak and not cheapen the transition with irony. Their songs are riddled with impossibly catchy melodies, off-kilter lyrics, sweetness, light and sadness. Most importantly, though, Rilo Kiley really means it, and their honest instinct for subtle songwriting sets them apart from the herd of twee popsters that infest the pop spectrum.

    Enema of the State is the third studio album by American rock band Blink-182. Produced by Jerry Finn, the album was originally released on June 1, 1999 by MCA Records. After a long series of performances at various clubs and festivals and several indie recordings throughout the 1990s, Blink-182 first achieved popularity on the Warped Tour and in Australia following the release of their sophomore effort Dude Ranch (1997) and its rock radio hit Dammit. To record their third album, Blink-182 turned to veteran punk rock producer Jerry Finn, who previously worked on Green Day's breakthrough album, Dookie (1994). Enema was the band's first album to feature second drummer Travis Barker, who replaced original drummer Scott Raynor. It is also the first album to feature their second lineup and not to feature their full original lineup.

    Take The Kids Off Broadway

    Foxygen is the young bi-coastal songwriting duo of vocalist Sam France of Washington state and guitarist/keyboardist Jonathan Rado of New York. They are the raw, de-Wes Andersonization of The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Velvets, Bowie, etc. that a whole mess of young people desperately need. At the same time, they pull a very Anderson-type move wherein they paint an impressionistic and hyper-real (and instantly recognizable) portrait of specific places and times, and blurring the lines between time and place.


    Yet, it never comes across as anything but absolutely modern music. They bring the freewheeling qualities of someone like Ariel Pink to those aforementioned influences to make for one of the most refreshing listens of the year. They are the real deal and total savants. Jagjaguwar is proud to introduce you to Foxygen and their bedroom masterpiece Take the Kids Off Broadway mixed by Richard Swift. The album is an intriguing, bedroom-recorded prelude to their Swift-produced full-length planned for late 2012.

    It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

    Ranked 78/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.


    25th Anniversary


    I hated that record, said Public Enemy's Chuck D. Believe it or not, he's referring to Bring the Noise, the frenetic first track of It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, the group's 1988 agit-rap masterpiece and breakthrough album. Public Enemy had recorded the song in October 1987 for the soundtrack of the forgettable Less Than Zero. When Chuck (a.k.a. Carlton Ridenhour) first heard the final version, he said, I practically threw it out the window.


    He changed his mind later that year when Public Enemy were on tour in England. I kept hearing people ask, 'What's this record you've got out? People are going crazy over it,' he remembered. I was like 'OK, pull that acetate out, and let's play it [in concert].' People went berserk.


    Bring the Noise, along with Rebel Without a Pause and Don't Believe the Hype - all conceived in 1987 at the group's Hempstead, Long Island, studio, Spectrum City - would become the foundation of It Takes a Nation of Millions, an album that's loud, obnoxious, funky, avant-garde, political, uncompromising and hilarious all at once. Chuck may have been disgruntled over Bring the Noise, but he always liked Rebel Without a Pause, the track that introduced Public Enemy's trademark sirenlike horn squeals. Hank Shocklee of PE's production team, the Bomb Squad, says that Rebel started out as a response to Eric B. and Rakim's I Know You Got Soul. We were going for something that had the same feel but with more aggression, Shocklee said. Because we were angry.


    For Rebel, PE coupled piercing squeals (a snippet from the J.B.'s' The Grunt played backward) with James Brown's Funky Drummer (Because that song was my milk, said Shocklee). Then it fell on Chuck to write the lyrics. I remember locking myself in the house for 24 hours, Chuck said. He emerged with verses that emulated Rakim's off-the-rhythm flow but stayed true to his own booming-baritone persona (Soul, rock & roll, comin' like a rhino); Chuck also dropped the name of black activist Joanne Chesimard, hinting at the political direction that his rhymes would soon take.


    Don't Believe the Hype, recorded just before Bring the Noise, was Chuck's first foray into full-fledged polemics, in this case against the media. The lyrics were inspired by a slight against Chuck by New York-area radio DJ Mr. Magic. PE had serious doubts about that song, too. We thought 'Hype' was just garbage, said Shocklee. Again, they saw the response the song got when DMC (of the group Run-DMC) blasted the track out of his Bronco in Harlem on a Saturday night. The whole block was grooving to it, says Shocklee.


    In January 1988, it all fit together. You had the combination of the noise from 'Rebel,' says Chuck, the tempo of 'Bring the Noise' and the subject matter of 'Don't Believe the Hype.' It set off Takes a Nation pretty nice.

    Take Care, Take Care, Take Care

    In the four years since the release of Explosions In The Sky's previous album, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, they've amassed a steady stream of unlikely achievements for a band most known for stirring instrumentals that often push the 10 minute mark. They toured with The Flaming Lips, headlined a sold-out Central Park concert, performed on the legendary Austin City Limits television program, and curated the world-renowned ATP Festival, all with the humble resolve of a band who still hauls all of their own gear on and off the stage every night. And let's not forget their indelible impact on the cultural landscape of film and television since their breakthrough score for Friday Night Lights marked an aesthetic shift towards evocative, real-life grittiness in mainstream cinema.


    On their fifth album, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, the band take some of their greatest creative leaps yet, experimenting with layers of haunting, unplaceable sounds, euphoric vocals, classical guitar, body percussion, Japanese singing bowls and more. With solitary focus and collaborative vision, each instrument clearly exudes the spirit and inspiration of its player, squeezing more expression and lyricism out of guitars and drums than most singers could ever conjure with their voices.

Previously making the rounds in VIP DJ sets of tastemaking producers worldwide, Lock Off takes over where Ghosts EP and his 93 Million Miles Africa Hitech releases left off. Departing from the Detroit influence of his early work, he's traded them in for Chicago Footwerk bass lines and overlayed UK Grime fusion.

    Take Ten


    Limited, Numbered Edition Of 1,500 Copies


    Pressed On Audiophile-grade 180 Gram Vinyl At
    Pallas Group In Germany


    Mastered From Original Analog Tapes By Bernie
    Grundman


    Features Jim Hall On Guitar And Connie Kay On
    Drums


    Everyone wanted Desmond to come up with a sequel to the monster
    hit "Take Five"; and so he did, reworking the tune and playfully
    designating the meter as 10/8. Hence "Take Ten," a worthy sequel with
    a solo that has a Middle-Eastern feeling akin to Desmond's famous
    extemporaneous excursion with Brubeck in "Le Souk" back in 1954.
    It was here that Desmond also unveiled a spin-off of the then-red-hot
    bossa nova groove that he called "bossa antigua" (a sardonic play-on-words meaning "old thing"), which laid the ground for Desmond's
    next album and a few more later in the decade. Jim Hall now gets
    plenty of room to stretch out, supported by Connie Kay's gently
    dropped bombs, and he is the perfect understated swinging foil for
    the wistful altoist. There is not a single track here that isn't loaded with
    ingeniously worked out, always melodic ideas. Now Take Ten finally
    gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, with this 180gram reissue,
    mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman. Each copy
    of this limited edition release is numbered with a gold foil stamp.

    Off The Beaten Path (Deluxe)

    Justin Moore s always had a thing about doing it his way. Call it stubborn redneck mettle, a well-developed case of who I am or just the fierce commitment to blaze a trail inherent to people from his home of Poyen, Arkansas. It doesn t mat ter why, just that the blazing sense of off the beaten path drives his album of the same name.


    There s a strong vein of tenderness and decency holding Moore s kind of country together. Look no further than Rhett Atkins/Ben Hayslip/Ross Copperman-written Point At You, the lead single, that acknowledges every wild hair Moore has, but hits the bottom line of his goodness via the woman who became his bride.


    Get loud, get rowdy, but get home and emerge solid family men dedicated to some basic ideals that have defined this country. One need look no further than The Warren Brothers/Lance Miller/Austin Cunningham-penned opener Old Back In The New School to understand Moore is all about the things that last, the wild times and the enduring values making for a way of life worth living.


    It s that kind of edge that draws a singer like Miranda Lambert to duet on the somber heartbreaker Old Habits. A little bit rowdy, a little bit sentimental, a whole lotta roughneck, Moore has dented the country radio charts with three #1s in the anything but big city Small Town USA, the sentimental family embracing If Heaven Weren t So Far Away and the fidelity pledge Til My Last Day, in addition to the Top 10 mission declaration Backwoods.


    But the hits don t really tell the whole story. This is the man whose first single a digital only release was I Could Kick Your Ass, who flexed his sense of humor with the new guy mocking Bait A Hook and unapologetically throw down How I Got To Be This Way. And long before booty country became a touchstone, Moore dropped the swaggering Back That Thing Up.


    Indeed, Booty Country is full force on OFF THE BEATEN PATH. He has the Kim Kardashian and J-Lo invoking I d Want It To Be Yours co-written with Stover and Brandon Kinney and the slip into the night guitar grinder Off The Beaten Path that slithers through the Patron and the moonlight.Good ole boys doing what they re good at. Moore has built a career eschewing the path most taken, building a fanbase of people just like him.


    Take a certain amount of swagger, add some hard-rocking guitars and add Country Radio, a howler that celebrates the ultimate lube for escaping the boredom and expectations. There s the same kind of bulked up, bearing down picture of pride of Lettin the Night Roll, pure freedom and the will to be alive.


    Two strong hands, a back that can shoulder anything, this is working man s post-modern American and that respect is what binds him to his woman in That s How I Know You Love Me. Ultimately, she refuses to make him change, and takes what s there for what it is, loving him for all its busted glory.


    To believe in values that last, to embrace what is enough and know it s more than plenty, that is the greatest truth for a man like Moore, who sees no reason to leave the place he grew up. Beyond the hits, the gold-certified albums and the momentum of a career hitting its stride, OFF THE BEATEN PATH is a collection of classic postcards that make up the ascending This Kind of Town and the driving chugger One Dirt Road.


    You don t have to take it from Moore, though. No less than the great Charlie Daniels, a man who s hung tough for hardcore old school values is featured on For Some Ol Redneck Reason, a pledge of allegiance to living true to principles and never giving into convention. This is one of the truest event moments as Moore dials it back, unfurling the map of his heart and soul.

    Take A Picture

    Take a Picture blends Margo's infectious and highly intelligent songcraft with her absolutely unique voice - equal parts girl group innocence and seductive torch. One of the most endearing and delicious soft rock records from its era, here's an impeccable Sundazed vinyl reissue of this '68 masterpiece, direct from the original masters.


    Margo Guryan is the most original songwriter that I've ever produced, and also something of an enigma. Underneath it all, she's a schooled composer, but she writes moving pop songs. She writes from her heart, but also from her head.

    - John Hill, album producer


    When Margo heard God Only Knows for the first time, she dropped everything. Steeped in learnings of jazz and composition, Margo was shaping her musical self in 1966, and Pet Sounds was just what she wanted to hear. Inspired, and working in the glow of Brians masterpiece, Margo began work on Take A Picture. Its a beautiful lost gem. I love this album dearly. The first thing to notice is Margos voice, a unique upper register whisper. But when it starts off you say whoa, what is this? as Sunday Morning sounds like a garage funk band with studio musician talents. The albums production is wonderful in that it is so expert, but never showy. This is one of the most laid back albums Ive heard. Another sunday morning staple....Its jazz, slightly psych pop, with all the ornaments of the Pet Sounds orchestra. A brilliant record...

    Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything


    Marks The 15th Anniversary Of The Band, Founded And Led By Efrim Menuck Of Godspeed You! Black Emperor


    First New SMZ Full Length Since GYBE's Return To Action In 2011


    Recorded In Quebec By Greg Norman (electrical Audio)


    Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (SMZ) has traced a barbed-wire arc of
    genre-defying protest music since its inception in 1999. Formed by Efrim Menuck, with
    Thierry Amar and Sophie Trudeau, the initial iteration of the band was a predominantly
    instrumental trio that forged a more intimate and ragged chamber-punk than Godspeed
    You! Black Emperor, in which group all three founding SMZ members also played (and
    continue to play). Through seven albums from 2000-2010, SMZ expanded its line-up and
    shifted towards an increasing use of lead and group vocals, with Menuck penning politically charged lyrics to anchor long-form multi-movement compositions that juxtaposed electrified
    guitars against a 4-piece string section of violins,cello and contrabass.


    Most recently, SMZ has pared back to five players, with Menuck's massive spectrum spanning electric guitar sound emerging as the spine around which two violins, bass (now
    more often electric than acoustic) and drums are deployed. SMZ have managed a handful
    of short tours in the past couple of years (in the gaps between GYBE commitments) and
    as anyone who has seen the band in its recent incarnation can attest, their current sound
    is more honed, laser-guided and bone-rattling than ever, melding hardcore, blues, garage
    and dark metal influences that have nothing to do with anything so quaint as "post-rock"
    (a tag the group has always and rightly rejected).


    Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything is the first definitive document of
    the band's newfound sound and style as a quintet. It's also their first single LP-length
    work since the band's debut record as a trio almost 15 years ago, and features road tested pummeling rock-outs "Fuck Off Get Free (For The Island Of MontrÉal)", "Take
    Away These Early Grave Blues" and "What We Loved Was Not Enough" alongside the
    previously unheard lullabyes/minuets "Little Ones Run" and "Rains Thru The Roof At Thee
    Grande Ballroom (For Capital Steeze)" and the album centerpiece "Austerity Blues" with
    its closing lyric "Lord let my son live long enough to see that mountain torn down"
    sung in varying incarnations throughout the second half of this 14-minute epic.


    This lyric in many ways encapsulates Menuck's unflinching take on a world replete with
    shabbiness, greed and injustice, seen through the lens of parenthood, mortality, endurance
    and defiance. There are few other musicians who deliver social critique with the courage
    and honesty of lines like "All our cities gonna burn / All our bridges gonna snap / All our
    pennies gonna rot / Lightning roll across our tracks / All our children gonna die". Feel-good
    music this is not; but neither can it reductively be tagged apocalyptic or world-weary.
    Fuck Off Get Free rages with scorn and with hope, utterly passionate but pointedly
    unromantic. Thee Silver Mt. Zion once again demonstrates, like few other bands working
    today, that there is much to fight for and against, and plenty more fight songs to sing.

    Taking The Biscuit

    Lynyrd Skynyrd were performing in the UK in late 1975, on a tour promoting their third studio record, Nuthin' Fancy. The band were coming off two hugely successful albums, their debut, Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd and 1974's Second Helping. This show features Lynyrd Skynyrd in an environment where they felt comfortable and were at the top of their game. With the exception of the Allman Brothers, most southern rock bands had stayed away from the U.K. during this period because the country's music scene was so wrapped up in glam, pub-rock and the emerging punk scene. But that didn't scare Skynyrd, who confidently played their brand of riff-driving southern fried rock boogie to crowds around the British Isles.

    Originally released by Island Records in November 1974, 'Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)' picks up stylistically where its trailblazing predecessor 'Here Come The Warm Jets' left off earlier in that same year. Here, a more assured Eno is at the helm, enlisting the help of his friends The Winkies, former Roxy Music band members Phil Manzanera and Andy MacKay, Robert Wyatt from Soft Machine and Phil Collins of Genesis / Brand X.

    This new gatefold 2LP vinyl edition of 'Taking Tiger Mountain ' is presented over two 180GM discs which play at 45rpm for optimum sound quality.

    Is This It

    Ranked 367/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Import

    Remastered


    Is This It, the debut from the Strokes, kickstarted a garage-rock revolution that defined American music from 2001 through 2005. Featuring taut rhythms, frentic tempos, scruffy grooves, melodic hooks, cool-toned vocals, choppy riffs, backstreet attitude, and twitchy arrangements that equally reference Motown, American punk, new wave, and funk, the album is a watershed document that takes off on the influences of James Brown, Television, and the Yardbirds and creates something entirely fresh, new, and irresistible.

    Live At The Avant Garde

    Before Magic Sam scored with 1967's West Side Soul (DMK 615) his recorded legacy included a handful of sides for Cobra in the late '50s, Chief in the early '60s and a few miscellaneous 45s in the mid-'60s. But just when it looked like things were going to really take off for Sam he passed away on December 1, 1969 at the age of 32. Delmark issued 1968's Black Magic (DMK 620) and there have been several posthumous releases of live recordings including the classic Live (DMK 645). This album comes from a June 22, 1968 live concert recorded at the Avant Garde in Milwaukee. It features Magic Sam, vocals, guitar; Big Mojo Elem, bass and Bob Richey, drums. Over 65 minutes.

    Rocket Number Nine

    Pressed On Green Colored Vinyl


    Among Sun Ra's most famous and jet-propelled anthems, Rocket Number Nine is heard here in one of the earliest renditions from a marathon June 1960 session, with a staggering, swaggering, hip-bop beat. Ignition. Liftoff. Rocket Number Nine Take Off for the Planet Venus, Zoom Zoom! Up in the air! Zoom! Up! Paired with originally unknown recordings, including the driving, bossa nova-infused Ankhnation from 1959 and Project Black Mass from 1962.


    More energized and driving in contrast with the rather laconic subsequent versions appearing elsewhere, Ankhnation features a feast of traded solos from assorted Arkestral all-stars such as John Gilmore, Pat Patrick, and Hobart Dotson.


    Project Black Mass is straight from the Vaults of Mystery: Voice of the Cosmos in spirit-science precision. Romping, rumbling low tones, glittering, twinkling stars, wanderful wondering. Architecture of moments, milestones of Blackness.
