    Cabbage Alley

    Includes 2 Bonus Tracks Available On Vinyl For The First Time


    In the late 1960s and early 1970s, New Orleans's Meters churned out irresistible funk instrumentals that were distilled to their essence and intended to get people up and shaking. When the Josie label went bankrupt in 1971, the band moved over to the Reprise label and began to broaden their horizons, expanding their sonic palette and putting more emphasis on vocals. Cabbage Alley, their Reprise debut, finds them experimenting with tropical sounds (Soul Island), Allman Brothers-style guitar leads (Stay Away), Neil Young covers (Birds), and socially conscious lyrics (Lonesome and Unwanted People).

    Fire On The Bayou

    Includes Bonus Tracks!


    Hailing from the soggy streets of New Orleans, the Meters essentially invented the second line groove, influencing Funk music like no other artist (OK, aside from a singer by the name of James Brown). These cats are essentially one unified rhythm section, with expertly timed drum breaks, bass driven grooves, bluesy chicken scratch guitars and Southern sing along choruses.


    Their 1975 album Fire On The Bayou established once again that The Meters were still the undisputed masters of Funk. Tracks like Can You Do Without, Out In The Country and the title track have become staples in the Meters' songbook. This 2LP edition of Fire On The Bayou contains no less than 5 bonus tracks!

    Fozgometer Azimuth Range Finder


    The FOZGOMETER represents a breakthrough for adjusting phono system azimuth.


    To obtain high performance from a modern phonograph system, the tonearm and pickup cartridge must be properly adjusted to within a few thousands of an inch. There are several alignment gauges available to adjust overhang and offset. To adjust cartridge azimuth (Axial Tilt), it has been necessary to use lab quality equipment and a test record. Azimuth may be adjusted using an oscilloscope, AC voltmeter, or computer program. These methods can be expensive and time consuming.


    The FOZGOMETER incorporates a "Log Ratio Detector" developed for surround processor steering logic circuits to measure channel separation over a wide range of signal levels down to -70 dB. The readings are virtually independent of overall signal levels, and can be made with a wide range of input signals without effecting accuracy. It is a small portable battery powered unit that is used in conjunction with a test record. It measures channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and accurately. Readings are taken without touching the meter, leaving your hands free to work with the tonearm. The meter reads channel separation in both directions, and channel balance. The LED's indicate Left, Center, and Right signal (test tone) positions.

    Freaky Styley

    Produced by George Clinton, 1985's Freaky Styley serves as hands down the funkiest outing from the Chili Peppers to date and it also marked the welcome return of original guitarist Hillel Slovak and drummer Jack Irons. A huge step forward from the band's eponymous debut, more than a few Peppers classics reside here, including Jungle Man, Hollywood (a reworking of the Meters' Africa), Nevermind, Catholic School Girls Rule and The Brothers Cup.

    Parking Lot Symphony (Pre-Order)

    Trombone Shorty has announced the release of Parking Lot Symphony, his Blue Note Records debut. The album is a 12-track tour de force produced by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Andra Day) featuring 10 new original songs along with covers of Allen Toussaint ("Here Come The Girls") and The Meters ("It Ain't No Use"). True to its title, the album contains multitudes of sound-from brass band blare and deep-groove funk to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger-and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as he says, "Music brings unity."

Asthmatic Kitty asked a select group of talented artists to create a unique recording for this collection. Law Of The Least Effort is the name under which Casey Foubert records his instrumental compositions. An homage to 60s and 70s session bands like The Meters, Booker T. And The MGs, The Funk Brothers, the JB's, and guitar players like Clarence White, Link Wray, and JJ Cale.

    The Happiness Project

    The Broken Social Scene Presents Series, in which the core members of the many-membered Canadian co-op release solo albums from under the safety of the band's umbrella, has, thus far, delivered a couple of releases that haven't fallen far from the BSS tree. Charles Spearin's The Happiness Project is the most unique release in the series so far and it began as a number of interviews, in which Spearin would talk to his friends and neighbors ranging in age and culture about, essentially, the subject of happiness. Working from these recordings, Spearin used the cadence, rhythm and intonation of these voices and then recruited musicians to play a singular instrument in a fashion that matches the meter and melody of these spoken conversations.

    Chord Carnival SilverScreen Speaker Cables (3 Meter)

    Chord Carnival SilverScreen is an affordable shielded speaker cable inspired by our award-winning Signature cable and like Signature, Carnival SilverScreen is capable of bringing astonishing improvements to the system it is connected to. There can be no doubting the importance of high frequency effective shielding. From entry level upwards, every hi-fi system responds to the introduction of shielded speaker cable. More detail, improved dynamics, better timing, tonal neutrality across the frequency range and most importantly of all, a hugely enjoyable and involving musical experience.


    The oxygen free copper multi stranded conductors used in Carnival SilverScreen have been borrowed from the Chord Carnival Classic. The twisted pair configuration conductors are insulated with low-density polyethylene insulation and these are surrounded by a soft PVC casing that provides excellent mechanical damping characteristics. The conductors and PVC surround are then shielded with two heavily overlapped foil shields. To hold the dual shields in place and provide further mechanical damping a final translucent outer jacket is applied.


    Carnival SilverScreen can dramatically improve the musical abilities of almost any system it is fitted to. However, given the price, Carnival SilverScreen should also be seriously considered for use in home cinema and multi-channel music systems. The sheer number of components and the amount of cabling involved in a typical multi-channel home cinema and music system makes a compelling case for the use of a shielded speaker cable. Wiring the front three speakers with Carnival SilverScreen and the rear speakers with either Carnival Classic or Leyline will produce excellent results.

    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Chord Odyssey speaker cable shares its principal design features with Chord Rumour. Like Rumour, each conductor is made up of 19 strands of silver-plated oxygen free copper surrounded by PTFE insulation. However, the strands are of a heavier gauge and whereas Rumour uses 1.5mm overall diameter conductors, Odyssey uses 2mm overall diameter conductors.


    The larger diameter conductors help Odyssey to carry dynamic information extremely well and this produces real improvements to the weight, attack and dynamic of notes across the entire frequency range. Cymbals are noticeably more realistic and acoustic guitars and pianos more lifelike; this ability to carry dynamic information so well means that Odyssey produces a remarkably musical and coherent sound. This, combined with Odyssey's neutral tonality, helped it to win the Hi-fi News Best Speaker Cable award for five years in a row.

    In theory, all optical cables should produce fairly similar results. In practice this isn't the case. The Optichord is constructed using polymer tubing with a domed and polished cable end. The signal cable is protected with a cushioned outer jacket with a hard outer surface. The plug has been carefully engineered to provide a positive connection. When compared to a standard optical cable the Optichord brings vibrancy, life and colour to the system it is fitted to and the Optichord will perform well over lengths of up to 10 metres.


    The Optichord is also available fitted with a minijack connector at one end. This connection is often found on laptop computers and the Optichord is an excellent cable to use when wishing to connect a laptop to a DAC.

    Mo Beauty (On Sale)

    Mo Beauty is the debut solo release from celebrated singer/songwriter Alec Ounsworth, who earned acclaim with his band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The album was produced by veteran musician/producer and fellow Philadelphia native Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Blasters, John Lee Hooker, The Replacements), who initially suggested a New Orleans setting for recording. Working with some of the city's most storied musicians, including George Porter of The Meters on bass, Ounsworth has crafted a collection of songs that pick up where Clap Your Hands Say Yeah leave off. Mo Beauty carries on the band's vein of quirky humor, unabashed melody, and sonic experimentation, but with the weight of New Orleans and its history hovering over the recording, Ounsworth has dug deep on songs like Holy, Holy, Holy Moses (song for New Orleans), while tracks like South Philadelphia groove in a whole new way.


    Mo Beauty features George Porter, Jr. on bass, Stanton Moore on drums, Robert Walter on keys, and Matt Sutton on baritone and pedal-steel guitars, with additional help from members of the talented New Orleans community.

    So Lonesome I Could Cry

    The Hi recordings of Charlie Rich are in many ways the most reckless and adventurous of his career. In 1966 and 1967, Hi, a small Memphis label that hosted acts such as Willie Mitchell (and later Al Green) and the Bill Black Combo believed, like Sun, RCA, and Mercury before them, in Rich's prodigious talent but had no idea where to put him categorically. Most are the songs associated with Hank Williams. They are revelatory in that they reveal just how wide-ranging Rich's vision was. Beginning with Williams' own My Heart Would Know, Rich takes the songs deep into his own musical soul and, like Ray Charles before him with Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, makes them his own, turning them into timeless pop classics. Among Rich's recordings, these 12 songs are some of the most enduring. There is You Win Again, where the pedal steel becomes an instrument of timbral control and coloration and the lyric becomes a shimmying doo wop-framed melody; Hey Good Lookin' sounds as if Rich is backed by Booker T. & the MG's and the Meters simultaneously. The cool Hammond B3 run at the beginning of Nobody's Lonesome for Me takes a honky tonk tune and turns it inside out, making it a rousing party anthem. As for Williams I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, Rich's version is among the most beautiful and emotionally naked ever recorded. The set closes with Leon Payne's They'll Never Take Her Love Away From Me. As pedal steel guitar winds out the sang lines, Rich pours virtually everything he has into Payne's deeply moving lyric. This isn't merely a sad song, it's a devastating one; it's a suicide note; but the tenderness evoked by Rich makes it among the most beautifully twisted love songs ever performed. This collection is essential for Rich fans, and something to consider for any fan of timeless, restless country-soul from the 1960s. - Thom Jurek (All Music Guide)
