    The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys

    40th Anniversary!


    Mastered from the Original Island Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray


    Traffic was one of the premier architects of the acid rock movement in the '60s and blossomed further into one of the most important super groups of the '70s. Their recordings are the soundtrack to a generation of music enthusiasts that continues to this day and will forever stand the test of time.


    In 1972, the legendary founding members Stevie Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood sojourned on after a smash outing with John Barleycorn Must Die and continued the winning streak with the groundbreaking classic The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys. Along with new members Jim Gordon (Derek & The Dominoes), Rick Gretch (Blind Faith) and Rebop Kwaku Baah, Traffic was back and on a roll artistically unlike many other important acts of the classic rock era.


    Known for more than its amazingly cube shaped album cover, the multi-faceted music inside was a non-stop enjoyment of sounds never heard or recorded since. Whether standout tracks from the pens of Jim Capaldi like the hard rocking Light Up Or Leave Me Alone or the powerful balladry of ancient sounds with the Winwood/Capaldi classic Rainmaker, this brilliant album will most certainly be known forever for its classic title track, the massive twelve minute plus epic, The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys. Filled with explosive sax breaks by the late Chris Wood, the piano driven and vocal delivery of master musician legend Stevie Winwood and the percussive vibrations of the late great Jim Capaldi, Jim Gordon and the late Rebop Kwaku Baah, the song was destined to become a huge success.


    Friday Music presents the Traffic/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series as we begin with our first installment with their monumental classic of the ages The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso from the original Island Records tapes at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys is a truly one of the most important audiophile vinyl releases of this year. To make this an even more enjoyable limited edition happening, for a very short time, we are also going back to the original Tony Wright designed cube shaped die-cut album cover, for the first time in North America since its 1972 release!

    Future's Past (Awaiting Repress)

    DAVE MASON--Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and TRAFFIC co-founding member--has announced the release his new album, FUTURE'S PAST (Something Music/MRI) featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. Renowned for such Traffic hits as Feelin' Alright (covered by Joe Cocker) and Hole In My Shoe plus his solo signature tracks We Just Disagree and Only You Know and I Know, MASON's acclaimed solo career continues to flourish as he tours the U.S. with his new project billed as DAVE MASON'S TRAFFIC JAM.


    The cover art illustration for FUTURE'S PAST was done by none other than Mr. Graham Nash from a photo he made of DAVE while at Nash's place in Hawaii.


    Of the new release, MASON says, There is a great version of 'Dear Mr. Fantasy' that is kind of a re-write. There is a version of 'World in Changes' that is absolutely nothing like the original and there is a great live version that is absolutely beautiful of 'Sad and Deep as You.' There are two or three songs that were on a CD called 26 Letters 12 Notes that I did seven years ago, a Robert Johnson song, 'Come On in My Kitchen' and a brand new song called 'That's Freedom.'

    Heaven Is In Your Mind

    Traffic was one of the most original and influential British groups of the 1960s, gathering a diverse set of individual talents in vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Steve Winwood, singer/guitarist Dave Mason, drummer Jim Capaldi and reeds player Chris Wood. The foursomes expansive talents and formidable creative chemistry allowed the musicians to integrate an array of folk, jazz, pop and R&B elements, infusing their eclectic stylistic mix with a playfully psychedelic spirit that perfectly captured the experimental sensibility of the times.


    Traffics historic 1967 debut LP (produced by noted studio vet Jimmy Miller) was released in the U.K. as Mr. Fantasy, but initially reached U.S. shores in altered form as Heaven Is in Your Mind/Mr. Fantasy. The American edition featured an altered track listing and new cover art with Winwood, Capaldi and Wood but not Mason, who had quit the band prior to the albums release.


    The U.S. LP added the British singles Paper Sun, Hole in My Shoe and Smiling Phases to the albums running order, along with a short snippet of the U.K. single Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush as a recurring motif between tracks. The American edition also tacked on the short closing track Were a Fade, You Missed This, which is actually the fadeout of an alternate version of Paper Sun. The American LPs title was quickly amended to Mr. Fantasy, and it was under that name that most stateside fans came to know the album, with the original U.S. edition becoming something of a rarity.


    In any form, and under any title, Heaven Is in Your Mind/Mr. Fantasy ranks as one of the most audacious and inventive rock albums of its time. Such catchy tunes as Paper Sun, Hole in My Shoe and Heaven Is in Your Mind combine stylistic adventurousness with effortless melodic appeal, while more introspective numbers like Dear Mr. Fantasy and Coloured Rain capture early stirrings of prog-rock and jazz-fusion.


    Sundazeds new vinyl edition of this seminal vintage disc completely restores the albums rare original U.S. cover art. The LP also features the albums incredibly rare mono mix, which differs substantially from the albums more familiar stereo mix. Pressed on pristine high-definition vinyl, Heaven Is in Your Mind/Mr. Fantasy now looks and sounds better than ever.

    Still Climbing

    Leslie West is set to releases his album Still Climbing in 2013 via Provogue Records / Mascot Label Group.


    Originality, excitement, honesty and survival are all part of what makes a legend, and those qualities ripple through every song on the album. It's a testimonial to the strength and durability of West's artistry. Born October 22, 1945, as he approaches his 68th birthday, West has packed some of the most soulful and searing vocal performances of his half-century career into these 11 tracks. His guitar has never sounded more massive or riff-orientated.


    What's different on Still Climbing is that I wanted my guitars to sound as big as I look. So I used four of my Dean Signature model guitars with my Mountain of Tone humbucking pickups. I plugged them into my Blackstar amps - no pedals - and turned them up loud and raw, and what you hear is exactly what I did in the studio. These Blackstar amps deliver everything I need without 'confidence' pedals. I played one of the early tracks we recorded for Slash, and he said, 'That is as heavy as it gets.'


    Still Climbing is co-produced by West and Mike Metal Goldberg, who engineered all of the sessions. Songs like Dyin' Since The Day I Was Born, Hatfield or McCoy, and Busted, Disgusted or Dead establish a new litmus test for heavy.


    The latter features West and Johnny Winter on duelling slide guitars. West also gave up smoking cigarettes and pot after a bout with bladder cancer, so it's no wonder many of Still Climbing's numbers explore the theme of survival and, ultimately, triumph. To that end, West avows, Not only am I lucky to be here, but because I stopped smoking my voice is now stronger than it's ever been - as strong as my guitar playing.


    His inclusion of Feeling Good, a song by British actor-musician Anthony Newley that was made famous by Steve Winwood's group Traffic, is a testimonial to all of that. Its lyrics celebrate a new dawn for me as West and his long-time buddy Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) trade vocal lines.


    West has always been an outstanding vocalist, earning comparisons to soul legends like Otis Redding since his 1969 debut Mountain, which gave his historic band its name. On Still Climbing West revisits the catalogue of another classic soul man, Percy Sledge, with the enduring When a Man Loves a Woman. He's joined by now 32 year-old soul man Jonny Lang, who he met 15 years ago when Lang was a rising guitar prodigy. West says they cut the tune side-by-side in the studio, their soaring guitars and voices twining to bring fresh blood and a blues-soaked arrangement to the song.


    When a Man Loves a Woman, Never Let Me Go and Fade Into You explore a romantic theme. In 2009 West married his wife Jenni, who co-wrote many of Still Climbing's songs with the guitar giant.


    Balls, guts, heart - more words that are part of West's legend and describe the roaring crescendos and deep emotional roots of Still Climbing - and West himself. You know, when it comes to talent, we don't all move at the same rate of speed, West muses. Some people start at the top of their game and after 10 or 20 years you wonder what the hell happened to them. I like to joke that the older I get the better I used to be, but after giving up drugs and smoking, my voice can hit notes that I never could reach before. I'm thankful for that.

    biggest hits like the prog-rock champions Life In Dark Water,
    Song On The Radio, as well as his masterpiece Time Passages.

    Stewart also plays some mean acoustic and electric guitar on this
    incredible album alongside some of the most important players of our
    time like Tim Renwick, Peter White, the late great Jeff Porcaro and
    many others.

    Out Of Reach

    Originally released in 1978, Out of Reach was one of Can's last albums before their official disbandment in 1979. Here original bass player Holger Czukay is replaced by a much more funky Rosko Gee (of Traffic Fame)who plays a prominent role in shaping the sound of this album, writing and singing on a number of the album's trackswhile drumming duties are shared between Jaki Liebezeit and Reebop Kwaku Baah (also from Traffic), making this one of Can's more groove-heavy releases.

    Phoebe Snow (Awaiting Repress)

    Its not very often to witness the importance of a new artist when their debut album gets released. From time to time, these initial works will become as legendary as their lifetime careers are. The great Phoebe Snow and her self-titled debut album is undoubtedly an example of this rare phenomenon. Filled with nine extraordinary songs, seven of those written by a then 23-year-old Snow, including the smash hit single Poetry Man, truly became the catalyst for a legendary career.

    All of the radio formats fell in love with Snow and her new album. Additional album tracks like the hipster uptown blues number Harpo Blues, which features the jazz great Teddy Wilson on piano, and the equally solid and soulful I Dont Want The Night To End helped cement the album as a unequivocal classic.


    From this debut release, Snow also proved that she was a fine collaborator as heard on tracks like No Show Tonight with Traffics Dave Mason, Either Or Both with David Bromberg, and It Must Be Sunday with jazz superstars Bob James and Zoot Sims. These collaborative efforts paid off as she soon became the toast of the industry with a bevy of invitations to perform duets and guest vocals with the likes of Paul Simon, Donald Fagen, Dave Grusin, Linda Rondstat, Bonnie Raitt, Michael McDonald and many others.


    Friday Music now presents the great debut album by Phoebe Snow on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl. Mastered impeccably from the original Shelter/EMI tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, this amazing album is fully realized in the audiophile domain. To honor this brilliant American original, they are also presenting this fine album in a rare gatefold album cover, featuring all of the original artwork and lyrics from this once in a lifetime masterpiece. Also enclosed is a poly bag to protect your LP cover and a poly lined inner sleeve to help keep your vinyl in mint shape.

    Bitches Brew: Live

    It has been said that jazz stopped evolving when Davis wasn't there to push it forward.


    Even if that isn't true, Miles Davis certainly was one of the greatest music innovators of the 20th century, pioneering Cool Jazz (with the 1949 recording of Birth Of The Cool), Modal Jazz (with 1959's Kind Of Blue) and Fusion with 1970's Bitches Brew.


    Bitches Brew Live contains recordings from two performances: the first three songs were recorded at his Newport Jazz performance in July 1969 - a couple of weeks before the Bitches Brew Sessions in August of that year - and have remained unissued till this day.


    Miles performs with Chick Corea on electric piano, Dave Holland on acoustic bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums; musicians who all went on to become leaders of the Fusion movement. (Wayne Shorter unfortunately missed this date because he was stuck in traffic.) The A1 track 'Miles Runs The Voodoo Down' is the first professionally live recorded version of this song.


    The other six songs were recorded at the Isle Of Wight festival in 1970,and contain 'Directions' and 'It's About That Time' from the In A Silent Way sessions.


    Included in this exclusive release is a 12 page booklet with a liner note essay by renowned music journalist Michael Azzerad, and a special etch on the D side.

    Mirror Traffic


    Produced by Beck


    Coming off a triumphant year of Pavement reunion shows, Stephen Malkmus has returned to the studio with Beck producing to record his fifth solo album, Mirror Traffic. Early press reactions are already calling this gorgeous, crystalline production the album weve been waiting 10 years for him to make, and it certainly contains the most heartfelt and indelible songs hes written in years. Gone are the long guitar workouts and jams that marked the last couple of Jicks albums, replaced by incredibly
    catchy and endearing pop songs.


    Recorded in Becks studio over a period of two years, the 15-track album ranges from hard-rocking political commentary (Senator), to touching, winsome folk (No One Is), to astonishingly virtuosic but melancholy and contrite kiwi pop (Stick Figures In Love). The sonics are stunningly clear and impactful, while the lyrics are as inventive as ever but more meaningful than they have been since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.

    Traffic From Paradise

    200-gram super silent pressing from Quality Record Pressings!


    Never before released as a vinyl LP in the U.S.


    From the moment she first appeared in front of us on Saturday Night Live in 1979, Rickie Lee Jones has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification. She rocked the culture of singer-song writerdom with her refusal to conform to the stayed and careful eloquence of the folk rock generation that came before her. Neither punk nor pop, she tottered on a thread of her own device, jazz - the old musical kind, and R&B - the Motown thread that permeates her work.


    Her self-titled debut album, released by Warner Bros. in March 1979, had an immediate and profound impact in the music world and the culture at large ultimately becoming a multi-million selling hit. Jones secured five Grammy Award nominations, including Best New Artist, which she won at the January 1980 ceremony. She won a second Grammy in 1989 for Best Jazz Performance for her duet with long time pal Dr. John on Making Whoopee.


    Traffic from Paradise, released in 1993, features contributions from Leo Kottke, David Hildago and Jim Keltner among others. Now it's being reissued by Analogue Productions as an LP in the U.S. for the first time in its history.

    Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic

    Hey, what's this? Well that, my friend, is the newest album from The
    Gotobeds, entitled Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic. It's their second
    full-length LP and their first for Sub Pop. Whoa, whoa, please slow down.
    I'm already completely lost. What you just said sounded like a stream of
    complete gibberish. Okay, I'll lay it out for you and if you have any
    questions could you yell them at me? SOUNDS GOOD. The Gotobeds
    formed vaguely around 2009 in Pittsburgh and play a mutant strain of rock
    music that is often filed under punk, indie rock, or 99-cent discount bin.
    WAIT, THE GOTOBEDS? I HEARD THEY WERE KNUCKLEHEADS! Only if
    the knuckle is the part of the human body that contains the brains. Much
    like their previous releases on underground stalwart labels like Mind Cure
    and 12XU, this new album artfully slips intelligence and experimentation
    into a dying art form. It's a harder feat than you'd think.


    And sure, their live shows have often been compared to an all night party
    where I feared for my life and the lives of everybody in the five block
    radius, and their recorded output is akin to the sonic manifestos of four
    men deprived of human love and raised on beer and Swell Maps, Mission
    of Burma, and old Fall records. But what you get with The Gotobeds,
    delivered in spades on this album, is smart, noisy rock with just the right
    amount of stupid.


    FAIR ENOUGH. SO HOW'D THIS GET MADE? It was recorded in bursts
    over several months of 2015 in their friend My War Matt's basement in
    Pittsburgh. Unlike previously, the songs were conceived and recorded in
    blocks, which resulted in a more experimental feel. But this is no chin
    stroking curate's egg. You like loud, double guitar leads? OF COURSE I DO.
    WHO DOESN'T? You're in luck, because this album is carpeted with em,
    thanks to Eli Kasan and TFP. On a song like 'Bodies,' it sounds as if
    you've walked into the biggest Guitar Center, but, you know, not terrible.
    Keeping it all locked down is the rhythm section of drummer, Cary Belback
    and bassist, Gavin Jensen. They allow the downright prettiness of a song
    like Red Alphabet to shine, and the lyrics on the anti-sexism thrash of
    Crisis Time to punch through.


    THIS ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED
    TO CARE ABOUT? Eh, probably not. Except that Tim Midyett (Silkworm,
    Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) and some bum (Protomartyr) are featured as
    guest vocalists on Rope and Why'd You, respectively. Also, I'd be remiss
    to not mention the fact that the band's live show is a testament to the
    cathartic nature of speed, skill, repetition, noise, and red stage lights. If
    you don't believe me, ask the bands they have played with, like Total
    Control, Tyvek, or The Replacements. Also, they rep Pittsburgh harder than
    anyone possibly could and come off better for it...which is saying
    something.


    I THINK I UNDERSTAND. BLOOD // SUGAR // SECS // TRAFFIC IS THE
    GREATEST ALBUM SINCE THE LAST GOTOBEDS RECORD? Yes. Now
    please stop yelling. -Joe Casey, Protomartyr

    Territory (On Sale)

    Territory is the follow up to the Charlottetown band's Polaris Prize nominated and internationally acclaimed sophomore album, Little Jabs. Once again produced by Joel Plaskett, Territory builds on the promise of Little Jabs as the band continues to write and record sunny pop gems for the heart and head. The album also finds Two Hours Traffic discovering the shadows at the side of the road. Right from the get go this becomes apparent as the gold into lead alchemy of the rousing opener Noisemaker kicks in and by the time the title track tells its tale of disillusionment and betrayal you know you are settling in for a drive to the darker side. Indeed, songs such as Weightless One, Drop Alcohol, Wicked Side, and Lost Boys all explore the approaching dusk but just like the more hopeful tracks on the album (Happiness Burns, Sing A Little Hymn) they all lock into the close your eyes, sing along choruses and instantly memorable lyrics that have put Two Hours Traffic on the melodic map.



    Initially conceived as a two-piece, lead singer Liam Corcoran and guitarist Alec O'Hanley recruited bassist Andrew MacDonald and drummer Derek Ellis while attending university in their hometown of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. After releasing their April Storm EP in 2003 a friendship was struck up with Halifax hero Joel Plaskett who offered to produce the band's first proper album. They've been working together ever since. While their eponymous debut and their follow up Isolator EP were received warmly by critics, it wasn't until 2007's breakthrough Little Jabs that the world really took notice. Appearing on dozens of year-end best of lists, Little Jabs also garnered an ECMA for Best Pop Recording and was a finalist for the coveted Polaris Music Prize.

    Criminal Minded

    In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to
    stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie
    Down Productions' undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded.


    Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine
    the New York rap landscape as it was then known, the album, which
    features the songs "South Bronx," "Criminal Minded" and "The Bridge is
    Over," captures the excitement, urgency and raw power that embodies
    hip-hop culture as we know it, with KRS-One's aggressive yet intelligent
    lyricism backed by Scott La Rock's hard-hitting, stripped-down beats.


    A true classic, Criminal Minded has been recognized by Vibe Magazine,
    The Source and Rolling Stone as one of the most important albums of all
    time. Traffic Entertainment Group and B-Boy Records are proud to
    present Criminal Minded, presented inn a double-LP pressing.

    Criminal Minded 7 Box Set

    Traffic Entertainment Group and B-Boy Records are proud to present one of the most influential and
    original albums in music history: Criminal Minded by Boogie Down Productions in a never before released form. One of the most legendary releases in the history of music is now available as a unique and collectable 7" box set. The entire original album is included across five 45s, housed in a durable box lined with two versions of the B-Boy Records logo. Each 45 is enclosed in a mini replica of the B-Boy 12" jacket.


    A true classic, Criminal Minded was included in Vibe Magazine's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th
    century. KRS-ONE's combination of street slang and Webster's dictionary knowledge backed by Scott La
    Rock's hard hitting, minimal beats helped set this album apart when it was originally released in 1986. With this now-classic debut album, BDP's hardcore stylings helped to redefine the New York rap music scene. Criminal Minded elevated the standards and proved that rap could be a dynamic and consciousness-raising medium. Since its release, KRS-ONE has gone on to become one of the most
    prolific and critically-acclaimed artists in Hip Hop history.


    This deluxe 7 inch box set is a new chapter in the storied history of one of recorded music's genuine
    treasures, Criminal Minded.
