    The Thing (1982 Original Soundtrack) (Awaiting Repress)

    Standard "Snow" Edition


    180 Gram "Snow" Vinyl (True White)


    Satin Coated Old-Style Gatefold Jacket with UV Spot-Gloss


    11" x 22" Poster


    New Artwork By Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative


    Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the deluxe soundtrack re-issue to 1982's sci-fi horror classic, JOHN CARPENTER'S THE THING. Composed by the legendary Ennio Morricone, the soundtrack to THE THING is a landmark musical composition that is cold, dark, minimal, and effective.


    Considered to be John Carpenter's directorial masterpiece, THE THING is praised as one of the greatest films of its genre by both fans and critics. Starring Kurt Russell and A. Wilford Brimley, THE THING follows a team of researchers in Antarctica as they are infiltrated by a parasitic extraterrestrial life form that assimilates other organisms and then imitates them. The classic soundtrack composed by Ennio Morricone effectively captures the cold, isolated tone of the story and film, and marks one of the few John Carpenter directed films that Carpenter did not score himself.


    Waxwork Records worked for two years to ensure that such a highly anticipated and sought after vinyl soundtrack re-issue would meet and exceed expectations of the biggest fan of John Carpenter and his sci-fi / horror tour de force that is THE THING.


    Features include the complete Ennio Morricone soundtrack re-mastered from the original master tapes, 180-gram White Snow colored vinyl, all new artwork by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, deluxe heavyweight packaging including satin coated old-style gatefold jackets with UV spot-gloss varnish, and an 11" x 22" poster.

    Do The Right Thing

    The soundtrack for director Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing is a window into the classics hip-hop/R&B scene circa 1989. Peppered with new jack era slabs of wax from the likes of Public Enemy (the iconic Fight the Power), summer party staples from E.U. (Party Hearty) and Teddy Riley (My Fantasy), and deep slow jams from Perri and Al Jarreau, it's the perfect background for a hot night in the city, and like the film itself, it's both frivolous and foreboding.

    The Soul Of All Natural Things


    Includes Collaborations With Ramona Gonzalez (Nite
    Jewel) And Julia Holter


    Includes Liner Notes With Song Visualizations From
    Linda Perhacs


    Linda Perhacs' Parallelograms was created in the heart of
    hippy country, LA's Topanga Canyon, by a dental hygienist
    who was inspired by nature and by the cultural revolution
    going on around her. When Parallelograms was finished, it sounded like a masterpiece, but the label had pressed it so
    poorly, sales were non-existent. Obscurity beckoned.


    But in the internet age obscurity can be discreetly transformed into a kind of niche immortality. By 2003, Parallelograms had become a cult album.


    And slowly, Perhacs began making music again. In 2010,
    she connected with a new generation of LA musicians at tuned to her vision, including Fernando Perdomo and Chris
    Price, both accomplished musicians and producers in their
    own right. The trio began recording the eclipse song, "River
    Of God", and what became a new album's title track, The
    Soul Of All Natural Things.

Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen! Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011

    Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 2,800-word essay by Chris Hall on the album and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process. This truly is a no-expenses-spared project, resulting in the ultimate version of this title.


    Love is the theme for twelve ballads of heavenly strings orchestrated by the distinctive Gordon Jenkins, sympathetically backing the intimately expressive and supremely musical voice of the incomparable Nat King Cole. Featuring such legendary classics as Stardust and When I Fall In Love, Love Is The Thing topped the charts upon its release, is among its era's finest, most stylistically defining recordings of popular music and continues to enchant listeners to this day.


    Using the original 3-track session tapes from Capitol's vaults and all-analogue systems including custom headstacks, 3-track preview heads, console and monitoring chain installed at AcousTech specially for these releases, mastering engineers Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman realize the stunning wide-range potential and beauty of these recordings in this 45-RPM 180-gram vinyl edition. Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 2,800-word essay by Chris Hall on the album and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process.

    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.


    This classic 1964 Blue Note set is reminiscent of Blue Mitchell's lyrically melodic work with the Horace Silver group. The quintet here features Chick Corea, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor and Al Foster on a fine collection of jazz tunes!

    The Things We Carry

    This debut full-length and classic hardcore album from Boston's most sincere band, Have Heart, was originally released in 2006 and has remained relevant and in high-demand ever since. The Things We Carry contains 11 unrelenting songs full of substance and unparalleled passion not found in today's scene. Combining the early influences of Chain Of Strength and Turning Point with later great acts like Mouthpiece and Inside Out coupled with the production of Jim Siegel (Dropkick Murphy's, Guns Up!, Blacklisted), the massive sound and fury of Have Heart was perfectly captured in 27 minutes of pure energy. Out of press for several years, now available again on limited edition colored vinyl.

    The Real Thing

    The Real Thing (1989) turned out to be Faith No More's most aptly named record as it presents the band's most revered line-up. Mike Patton on vocals proved a massive improvement on their previous singer. Added at the last moment to complement a set of strong, funky songs, he joined Roddy Bottum on keys, Jim Martin on guitars, bassist Bill Gould and Mike Bordin on drums. The hit single "Epic" proved to be just that, and is one of the most recognizable Faith No More songs in their repertoire.

    The Real Thing (Deluxe)

    180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl With Gatefold Sleeves


    Features A 2nd LP With A Selection Of Rarities


    As Faith No More prepares to unleash its first new album in nearly 20 years, Rhino Records celebrates the back-to-back classic albums that helped establish the band's vital and visceral musical legacy with Deluxe Editions of THE REAL THING and ANGEL DUST.


    Each album will be offered as a double LP, 180gm heavyweight black vinyl format of each album, featuring the original album and a selection of the rarities related to each. The release date of the vinyl formats is planned for August.


    Like all bands who transcended their time to become cornerstones of an era, Faith No More sounded like nobody else. The group's commercial breakthrough came in 1989 with the release of THE REAL THING. It was the band's third album, but the first to feature the line-up of Mike Bordin (drums), Roddy Bottum (keyboards), Bill Gould (bass), Jim Martin (guitars), and Mike Patton (vocals).


    The album was incredibly diverse, yet every song was linked by the band's own developing style. It peaked at #11 on the charts and was certified platinum, spawning the singles, "From Out Of Nowhere" and "Falling To Pieces," as well as "Epic," which was ubiquitous on radio and MTV.


    The bonus disc puts a different spin on many of the album tracks with remixed versions of "Epic" and "Falling To Pieces," as well as live performances of "Surprise You're Dead," "Underwater Love" and the Black Sabbath classic "War Pigs." The bonus disc also includes the b-sides "Cowboy Song" and "The Grade."

    The Very Next Thing

    The Very Next Thing, Casting Crowns' latest offering, is a collection of intimate songs as well as upbeat, fresh sounding tracks with impactful lyrics centered around identifying and acting on what's right next to you.


    "I think we all believe the gospel," says Mark Hall, "we all want it, we're just not sure what we're supposed to do next. We've got this idea of an awesome walk with Jesus out there somewhere, and we're looking for the bridge to get over to it. Serving God isn't this giant dream a year from now. It's not this thing He's going to have you do in a month. It's right now. Following God is the next word of love that I need to speak to somebody, the very next heart that needs to be encouraged. Ministry isn't on Sunday; it's not on a stage. It's you, where you are, doing the next thing God tells you to do."

    The Things That We Are Made Of

    The Things That We Are Made Of, the new full-length album by renowned and beloved singer, songwriter and performer Mary Chapin Carpenter, will be released on Lambent Light Records via Thirty Tigers.


    Produced by 2016 Producer of the Year Grammy-nominee Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features eleven new songs, including the lead track "Something Tamed Something Wild. Of the song, Rolling Stone praises, " beautifully sums up where she's been and sets the stage for what's yet to come 'Something Tamed Something Wild' and indeed the entire new album finds the songwriter at her most thoughtful and also at times sweetly whimsical, perfectly capturing the buoyant spirit of her early successes and also serving as a reminder that she remains one of the most grounded, sentient songwriters of her generation."


    The Things That We Are Made Of was recorded at Nashville's Sound Emporium and Low Country Sound studios during the spring and summer of 2015. In addition to Carpenter (vocals, electric/acoustic guitar), the album features Cobb (electric/acoustic/gut string guitar, percussion, Moog, Mellotron), Annie Clements (bass), Brian Allen (bass), Chris Powell (drums, percussion), Mike Webb (piano, B3 organ, reed organ, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes) and Jimmy Wallace (piano, B3 organ).


    Of the album, Carpenter comments, "Working with Dave felt great from the first day of our sessions. He is always willing to try something new, believes that 'yes' is the only answer, and surrounds himself with wonderfully talented and generous musicians; by the end of the project, I felt as if I was a part of a new family." Cobb adds, "I wanted to work with Mary Chapin because very few people can cut with words like she can. She's an absolute poet and legend. I was so happy to collaborate on this album together."


    Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records. With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He'll Keep Her," she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Most recently, in 2014, Carpenter released her acclaimed debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie. Arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza, the record is comprised of ten previously recorded compositions including "Between Here and Gone" and "Come On Come On." Since it's release, Carpenter has performed alongside the New York Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the London Concert Orchestra, the L.A. Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra among many others.

    The Things We Think We're Missing

    According to Balance and Composure, they can be loud, quiet and everything in between. A pretty apt description in a nutshell. Once you get down to an
    intricate school of thought, the lyricism of singer Jon Simmons shows things in a different light. Having all met in the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, PA through mutual projects during their high school years, Balance and Composure was formed.


    A sonic assault melding influences such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana, their 2011, critically heralded debut album, Separation, adhered to the band's namesake. A cohesive listen of anthemic and melodic guitar blitzes with poignant lyricism, rhythmic thrusts and an abrasive pop knack in its overall deliverance, Separation helped establish Balance and Composure as one of underground rock's most promising newcomers.


    Following their debut, Balance and Composure toured continuously over the next several years with the likes of Circa Survive, La Dispute, Touche Amore
    and Title Fight. In the Spring of 2013, the band embarked on their first ever U.S. headlining tour with the recently reunited The Jealous Sound as support. After selling out venues in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and New York, it was clear their popularity was at an all time high.\


    Picking up where Separation left off, Balance and Composure return once again to push the boundaries of their music with driving riffs and intensely
    passionate vocals on the band's long-awaited second studio album, The Things We Think We're Missing. It's the type of record that makes listeners pause and reflect, evoking moments of happiness and sadness over the course of thirteen songs.

    Tally All The Things That You Broke

    Tally All The Things That You Broke, an EP by Parquet Courts
    is released on What's Your Rupture? Tally is far more
    than a stopgap in between full-lengths; it's the sound of Parquet
    Courts stretching out.


    Opener "You've Got Me Wonderin' Now," with its melodic
    drive and persistent Flutophone running alongside the melody,
    balances the manic tendencies of "Descend (The Way)," which
    would have fit on Light Up Gold, and extended rager "The More
    It Works," which would fit in a live set between Tyvek and Eddy
    Current Suppression Ring. "Fall On Yr Face" presents a classic
    desert trawler, lopsided and tuneful, the sound of the end of a
    long day. But the day is just beginning for the protagonist of
    "He's Seein' Paths," junkyard drum loops and doorbell samples
    framing Andrew Savage's eight-minute stream-of-consciousness
    rap about the trials and tribulations of a marijuana delivery
    service representative, zipping around the city on his bike.
    Simultaneously the link between Parquet Courts and Ween, or
    Parquet Courts and Beck, it frames the band coming from a
    new place, and is a post-millennial NYC anthem, quintessential
    sounds for anyone who's ever waited in anticipation of dialing
    that number, or anyone who's put on their game face and rode
    from point A to point B in the snarl of vicious traffic.

    The Biggest Thing Since Colossus (Pure Pleasure)

    During the sixties, there was the British blues boom, containing many blues bands, one of the finest being Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. In January of 1969 Fleetwood Mac were at Chess Studios, Chicago, jamming with the likes of Willie Dixon, S.P.Leary, Honeyboy Edwards, J.T.Brown and longtime Muddy Waters pianist Otis Spann. The end result of those sessions was the classic double album "Blues Jam At Chess".
    The rapport between the Mac and Otis Spann was such that they recorded another whole album together, " Colossus".



    Otis Spann is his usual emotive and exciting self, feeling totally relaxed alongside his regular drummer, S.P.Leary. This coupled with Peter Green's guitar playing, which is probably at it's peak on these recordings, makes for a blues album of substance.
    "The Biggest Thing Since Colossus" is probably one of the most underrated blues albums. Long out of print on vinyl and now re-mastered from the original 1/4-inch tapes this album is a must buy for all.




    Musicians:



    • Otis Spann (vocal, piano)

    • Peter Green (guitar)

    • Danny Kirwen (guitar)

    • John McVie (bass)

    • S. P. Leary (drums)




    Recording: January 1969 at Tempo Sound Studios, New York City



    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    The Only Thing I Ever Wanted

    This London-based duo's formula of addictive melodies, electronic frolics, and found sounds have put them on the musical map. Silly noises married to sultry vocals and perspicacious lyrics produce recordings of shimmering originality and nascent charm. The problem with a lot of electronic music is that it either takes itself too seriously or not seriously enough. Psapp offers the perfect solution: do both...knick-knacky sound effects, plucky violin, and whizzing bleeps over warm, elastic beats for a euphoric sound that's like a toy closet come to life - SF Weekly.
