    I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone

    I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone is Chastity Belt's third and finest full-length to date. Recorded live in July of 2016, at Jackpot! in Portland, Oregon, it's a dark and uncommonly beautiful set of mood-driven rock that's also unabashedly introspective. More personal and more direct than 2015's marvelous Time to Go Home, this one aims for the heart-from the shimmering insights of "Different Now" to the stunning clarity of "This Time of Night," this is a serious record but not a serious departure, a tangle of mixed emotions and haunting melody, a brave step forward.

    Why Should I Get Used To It (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    JOE LALLY played bass in FUGAZI from the bands inception in 1987 until their hiatus in 2003. When the members of Fugazi decided to take an indefinite break from recording and performing Joe began working on solo material and has continued to write and perform new material in collaboration with a wide variety of musicians and friends. Joe has released two albums on Dischord Records, There to Here in 2006 and Nothing is Underrated in 2007, and has toured extensively in the USA, Europe, Brazil, Japan and beyond. Joes albums and his tours have until recently featured a large cast of collaborators including his Fugazi mates, members of Capillary Action, Zu, Melvins, and others. On Joes newest album, Why Should I Get Used to It, he has settled on a more permanent line-up featuring his current touring mates, guitarist ELISA ABELA and drummer EMANUELE TOMASI. The album was recorded in Rome, where Joe has lived for the last several years, and is being released on Dischord in conjunction with Joes imprint, Tolotta Records. Joe and his band will continue to tour in 2011, with dates in Europe and Brazil already booked, and many more dates and territories to follow.

    Use Your Illusion I

    Part one of Guns N' Roses' ambitious third album stays closer to the band's bluesy hard-rock roots and it is largely considered the better of the two part release. Use Your Illusion I scored three Top 40 hits with the Wings cover Live and Let Die, the piano-driven, Elton John-flavored epic November Rain and the hard-edged ballad Don't Cry. Celebrity cameos include a then unknown Shannon Hoon, Hanoi Rocks' Mike Monroe and Alice Cooper, who makes a particularly sinister contribution to The Garden.

Recorded in Nashville with the towns top session musicians including Charlie McCoy, Kenny Buttrey and Neil Young producer David Briggs. A subversive, tender, moving, goofy, maddening, and profound record.

    You Can't Use My Name


    Audio Completely Mixed And Re-mastered Under The Direction Of Jimi's Long Time
    Sound Engineer, Eddie Kramer


    Includes The Previously Unreleased 1966 Recording, "Station Break"


    This special compilation presents Jimi Hendrix's 1965-
    1967 sessions with Curtis Knight & The Squires prior to his
    international fame leading the Jimi Hendrix Experience.


    While Jimi Hendrix's intermittent tenure as a guitarist for
    Curtis Knight & The Squires in 1965 and 1966 was relatively
    brief, more than 100 albums have been crafted from
    approximately forty studio recordings and consumer grade
    stage recordings by the group. Most featured low fidelity
    variations, remixes, edited versions, and instrumentals of
    the same material-often with their song titles changed.
    These albums were poorly annotated and all too often
    featured cover art that depicted the guitarist at the peak
    of his Jimi Hendrix Experience fame (and not as 'Jimmy
    Hendrix,' a sideman to Curtis Knight) and thus snared
    unwitting fans throughout the world that were starved for
    new Hendrix music for decades.


    Jimi Hendrix was hamstrung throughout his career by
    litigation over these recordings in the US and UK and these
    fights continued until his family ultimately prevailed in
    litigation. You Can't Use My Name stands as their first
    attempt to present this music in its original context.


    You Can't Use My Name is newly mixed and prepared
    for release by Eddie Kramer and includes the previously
    unreleased 1966 recording "Station Break," the full length
    versions of "Knock Yourself Out [Flying On Instruments],"
    "No Such Animal," and the 1967 recording of "Gloomy
    Monday" that includes dialogue between Hendrix and
    producer Ed Chalpin (featuring the guitarist's request that
    the producer not use his name on this session because of
    the ongoing litigation between them).

    Live At Third Man Records

    Performance Recorded Direct-To-Acetate On March 26, 2016, At Third Man Nashville's Blue Room Venue


    It's no stretch to say that Carla Azar is one of America's greatest living drummers. Intuitive, skilled, and perched quite comfortably on the extremely thin line between high energy and total entropy. All too often the title is heaped upon some goofball doing blast beats, rambling about breakdowns and power violence, all can easily be mistaken for the sounds of a scratched CD. Lucky for us and lucky for every pair of ears the whole world over, Third Man doesn't buy into that nonsense. And CDs? Scratched or brand spankin' new, they're not our preferred medium.


    Hailing from Los Angeles, Autolux is comprised of singer/bassist Eugene Goreshter, drummer Azar, and guitarist/keyboardist Greg Edwards. The band formed in 2000 and has released two EPs and three LPs, including Pussy's Dead in 2016, shortly before this epic live show was recorded in the Third Man Blue Room. Their sound is peculiar and unmistakable, a collision of post-punk, noise, pop and electronica (Organica? Maybe!). Think cyborg whistling glitch-hop mash-ups. You get it? Haha! Nice!


    Live records speak for themselves. This record speaks for itself. If you need us to say anything further, we're gonna need you to set this sheet down, free up both hands, use one to call your mom, keep her on the line, and use the other to hold her hand while she walks you toward the record bin housing something ''on your level,'' because apparently live music ain't your thing. But if you're still reading, it's because you clearly get it. Now go grip this record and see what the fuss is all about.

    Live At Third Man Records 10-26-2012

    The dog Hisself joined us at Third Man for a rare Stateside live appearance on October 26th, 2012. Nobody, but nobody, rocks a Diddley Bow like Seasick Steve, and we captured the every nuance in this direct-to-acetate recording. No edits. No overdubs. Just Seasick Steve in all his glory that fateful night in October.


    Three very special live records - The Shins, The Kills, and Seasick Steve - all recorded in the Third Man Blue Room last October, and the first three releases recorded live using their one-of-a-kind direct-to-acetate recording process. Without overdubs or editing, these three records were mixed in real time on a Rupert Neve 5008 console by Grammy Award winning engineer Vance Powell, and instantly cut to vinyl by master cutter George Ingram using a 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati's legendary King Records (the story goes that James Brown's It's A Man's World was cut on this lathe among many more great sides...)

    What can we say about The Shins that hasn't already been said in miles of press? They're one of the best bands out there today and we are still honored thinking back to the night James Mercer and his band here to play live and record a live LP for us. This show holds a particularly special place in our hearts, as it was the inaugural groove-carving voyage of our 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati's legendary King Records. The 8 tracks on this live recording mark our first ever cut live direct-to-acetate, and we couldn't be more pleased with the way they turned out.

    This record captures a show we had been wanting to see at Third Man since day Numero Uno. Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are two of the most talented and creative people we know and we couldn't be more pleased that they rocked our stage and committed it to wax so we can finally have a release on the label by the one and only KILLS.

    Elvis' Golden Records No. 1 (Speakers Corner)

    Have we got the lot? The King of Rock'n'Roll certainly didn't need to ask whether his entourage had collected together all their favourite hits. They had gathered them all together - a collection of Golden Records, rather like a selection box of favourite chocolates, greedily swallowed down and enjoyed to the full. And how they loved them all - whether 'complete works' collectors or fans. To this very day, this collection from 1958 is quite set apart from the normal 'best of' collections. It shines out like a precious jewel among mere pebbles. This was the first of four Gold volumes, and it set the standard for those to come. Before any of the immemorable songs came to be included, they had to have sold at least a million copies and won an undeniable and unforgettable reputation as a heart-string plucker. To name a title is more than superfluous. It's quite enough just to listen and enjoy. Whoever wants the ultimate basic Elvis collection can't go wrong here.



    Musicians:



    • Elvis Presley (guitar, vocal)

    • The Jordanaires (vocal)

    • and various bands




    Recordings: January 1956 - September 1957 in Hollywood, New York and Nashville in mono

    Production: Steve Sholes


    About Speakers Corner



    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Live At Third Man Records (Pre-Order)

    You don't need to be from the South to understand Billy Wayne Davis' particular brand of humor, but being the Nashvillians we are (both transplanted and native), this up-and-comer is one of our favorite used-to-be local (and soon-to-go-global) stand-up comedians. Davis has gone from surprising crowds at the comedy club down the road with his ''like-hillbill-ity,'' to winning over the alt comedy scene of Seattle, to hangin' with Marc Maron and working with the likes of Lisa Lampanelli, Louis CK, and Mitch Hedberg since his most recent move to Los Angeles. Third Man Records was thrilled to have Tennessee's much-missed ''thinking man's hillbilly'' to our stage for a little Southern hospitality and to record another addition to what is becoming a pretty formidable series of live comedy records. Some of our absolute favorite releases over the past seven years have been made without the use of a single guitar, and we expect Billy Wayne Davis Live at Third Man Records to join those very ranks.

    Elvis Presley: Gold Records Vol. 4 (Speakers Corner)

    At first sight, it does not look as though Elvis's 31st album was destined to be a hit. But if you take a look at his artistic biography in the year of its release - 1968 - then you will recognise the clever gimmicks that his wide-awake management employed to captivate rock 'n' roll fans when Elvis was somewhat 'stiff in the hips'. In this fourth Gold Edition, a tried and tested method was used to create a new LP: namely, a compilation of single hits from the years 1961 to 1967. The result was just what fans wanted! Alongside sentimental songs such as Love Letters, the tearjerker Lonely Man and the sobbing, heartstring tugging ballad It Hurts Me, we find spirited rock 'n' roll (Witchcraft, Ain't That Loving You Baby) and honky-tonk blues (A Mess Of Blues) in a toned-down 12-beat measure. In contrast, Don't Drag That String Around is cheerful, light and springy and, - for a change - not a blues number.
    Then we have the country song Devil In Disguise with its angry lyrics, and the soul title What'd I Say by Ray Charles with an electric sound that is lent by the Rhodes piano. All in all, this LP is a great collection from the grand old days of rock 'n' roll.



    Musicians:



    • Elvis Presley (guitar, vocal)

    • The Jordanaires (vocal)

    • and various bands




    Recordings: Juyl 1960 - June 1966 at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee, RCA Studios and Radio Recorders in Hollywood

    Production: Steve Sholes, Chet Atkins, George Stoll, Felton Jarvis, a.o.


    About Speakers Corner



    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, Speakers Corner 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 existant 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 emphasise that Speakers Corner 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 have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    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 - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Man With The Movie Camera: Live At Third Man Records

    Direct-To-Acetate


    The Alloy Orchestra double Live LP was recorded Direct-To-Acetate October, 12th in the Third Man Blue Room as the soundtrack to The Man With The Movie Camera Screening, cohosted by the Belcourt Theatre as part of the 2013 iNDie Festival.


    It was only a lucky few iNDie Festival attendees who witnessed Alloy Orchestra's performance of their soundtrack to the 1929 silent film ''The Man with the Movie Camera'' in our Blue Room last Fall, so we are pleased to bring the recording to you in the form of a double LP. Alloy Orchestra is a 3-man musical ensemble - Roger C. Miller, Ken Winokur, & Terry Donahue - who use ''racks of junk,'' synthesizers, and all sorts of other unusual instruments, found objects, and unlikely noisemakers to aurally accompany silent films. Roger Ebert has called them ''the best in the world at accompanying silent films,'' and we can't disagree. ''The Man with the Movie Camera,'' directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova, is a documentary with no specific cast or narrative. In the film, a man carries out his day in the city as a member of the proud proletariat, capturing invention and the relationship between man and machine in Lenin's Soviet Union.

    Back in 1973, I became a dedicated user of the Decca Carbon Fiber Record Brush. The British Decca Brush was so wonderfully more effective than any of the wet-cloth-pad cleaners that smeared dirt around on one's records.


    As often happens to truly superior products, the Decca Brush was mostly ignored - the overall record-cleaning market was dominated by cleaning pads attached to wood handles - not because they worked well, but because many hi-fi stores preferred to sell a cleaner that forced customers to come back to buy "special" fluid, again and again.


    After creating AudioQuest in 1980, and with the wild success of the AQ 404 phono cartridge in 1982, and because I personally used a Carbon Fiber record brush every single day - AudioQuest began making the AQ Carbon Fiber Record Brush - now a 35-year old success story, and maybe the world's favorite way to respect and care for LPs.


    Except - we eventually learned that the AQ Record Brush (and every other brand of carbon Fiber brush), doesn't have a good electrical path between the fibers and the handle, and that the print-protecting coating on the metal handle prevents a proper electrical connection to the user's hand. The user is the "ground" for static electricity, so having a good electrical contact from fibers-to-hand is a big deal!


    In creating AQ's new Conductive Carbon Fiber Brush, AudioQuest created new tooling for every part of our new design. AQ's reborn Brush has ideal conductivity from the Carbon Fibers, through the internal parts of the brush, to the conductive Gold Contacts placed right where your fingers need them.


    We also reinvestigated what is possible with Carbon Fibers, finally choosing for our new Brush a far greater quantity of new smaller fibers in order to more effectively sweep away micro-dirt, not just the less relevant visible dust.


    To everyone who has an AQ Record Brush (thank you), or any brand of Carbon Fiber brush, and to everyone who hasn't yet discovered how simple it is to keep records clean:


    We invite you to experience the reborn AudioQuest Conductive Record Brush.


    Your records will thank you!


    • Safe, fast, and effective tool for removing dust and debris from vinyl records
    • Conductive carbon fiber bristles and conductive gold contacts remove microscopic dust before it becomes embedded in the vinyl
    • Keeps records sounding like new
    • Also perfect for computer keyboards and much more

    King's Record Shop

    The 30th Anniversary of King's Record Shop is on 12 180-gram vinyl.

    Originally released through Columbia Records on June 26, 1987, King's Record Shop proved a pivotal album in the career of Rosanne Cash and in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. After working on a series of albums which contained singles introducing a new wave/pop sound to America's country charts, producer Rodney Crowell shifted gears on King's Record Shop to bring a more roots-oriented, contemporary folk approach to the genre.

    One of the most critically-acclaimed albums of Cash's discography, King's Record Shop generated four #1 hits on the Billboard Country charts: her covers of Johnny Cash's (her father's) Tennessee Flat Top Box, John Hiatt's The Way We Make a Broken Heart, and John Stewart's Runaway Train as well as If You Change Your Mind, a song she'd co-written with steel guitar player Hank DeVito (who shot the photos used on the iconic front cover of King's Record Shop).

    Cork Record Mat

    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.


    Kick out the jams with our new cork record mat. Instruments pop to life. Crackle is reduced. Vocals are clearer and more dramatic. The background is quieter, soundstage wider and deeper. How does this thing work? The secret is in the 12 isolation discs surrounding the outside of the mat and the single larger disc for the center label. The discs lift and support the record while floating it above and decoupling it from the platter. This lowers record vibration and reduces acoustic feedback. Stylus tracking is improved and record wear reduced. The mat eliminates the grunge and leaves behind a rich, clear, dynamic sound.


    Cork is the perfect material. It sucks up unwanted vibrations and releases the life and energy of the music. It's naturally non-static and non-adhesive making the mat perfectly safe for use on all platters and it won't harm your records. Cork grips the record better than felt so there's less record slippage and fewer timing errors. The mat is thin, lightweight, and generally doesn't require a VTA adjustment. Listen for yourself, the improvement is easy to hear.

    The Percussion Record

    The O-Zone Percussion Group consists of selected percussionists at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Their conductor, Dr. Gary J. Olmstead, has been Director of Percussion studies at IUP since 1966. He received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Michigan, Master of Fine Arts degree from Ohio University and Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. He is recognized nationally as a leading percussion educator and is active as a performer, conductor, and clinician.


    Carl Adams has been a professor at Indiana University of Pennsylvania since 1979 teaching flute, jazz Improvisation and is a member of the IUP Faculty Woodwind Quintet. Active on both the classical and jazz scene, Adams has performed with the U.S. Military Academy Band, the Keystone Wind Ensemble and the Akron and Johnstown Symphonies. Solo recital appearances include the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, Carnegie Recital Hall and the Chautauqua Institution. He performs in a tri-state area with the Carl Adams Jazz Quartet and has appeared at the Pittsburgh Jazz Society, Nemacolin in Woodlands, Three Rivers Arts Festival, the Westin-William Penn (Pittsburgh) and in benefit concerts for the Westmoreland Symphony.


    James Rupp is a veteran of the great 'big bands' of Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson and Glenn Miller, including tours of the United States and Europe. Jim has recorded television specials with the Woody Herman Orchestra and the Bobby Floyd Trio and live albums with the Woody Herman and Glenn Miller Orchestras.


    Jerry Tachoir is acclaimed by critics for his talent, versatality, and his studious grasp of the jazz idiom and brings an exciting and engaging dimension to his performances. He has been an active member of the Ludwig/Musser clinic staff since 1972. His most requested clinic features include improvisational techniques, harmonic awareness, and vibe technique.


    The connection of the percussion ensemble with jazz/rock/popular music seems a logical one given the inclusion of various percussion instruments as integral parts of this music. The drumset, of course, was present from the beginning of jazz and rock. The vibraphon has long been a favorite jazz instrument and the xylophone was a favorite ragtime solo instrument in the early part of the 20th century. Ethnic percussion instruments from Latin America, Africa and other cultures have long been used in the jazz/rock/pop Idiom.
