    Beautiful Vision

    Beautiful Vision is the thirteenth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison - Originally released in February 1982


    This 1982 album captures Van Morrison banking the fires of his more urgent, R&B-flavored '70s classics to sculpt a quieter, contemplative synthesis laced with Celtic flourishes, minimalist synthesizers, and the skeletal horn charts of saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and trumpeter-synthesist Mark Isham. Neither as expansive as the pastoral jazz meditations of the underrated Common One nor as limpid as the glossier, sometimes gloomier confessional pop that dominates his later-'80s albums, Beautiful Vision hews to ballads and loping, midtempo songs that allow Morrison gentle foils for his unmistakable vocal melismas. On its best tracks, Dweller on the Threshold, Cleaning Windows, Vanlose Stairway, and She Gives Me Religion, he alchemizes soul, gospel, and his own Irish roots in a balance he would often pursue from this point forward. --Sam Sutherland

    Common One

    Common One is the twelfth studio album by Northern Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison - Originally released in 1980


    Easily among Van Morrison's least successful albums, Common One is probably also his least understood. Arriving in the wake of the far more concise, focused Into the Music, this 1980 project found Morrison making a sweeping left turn toward the open-ended, jazz-fueled vamps and spiritual questing of his impressionistic classic, Astral Weeks, 12 years earlier. The LP contains only six songs, several woefully uneven, and fans of his tautly constructed, soul-inflected '70s work could only scratch their heads, yet the heightened horn colorations and pre-industrial imagery of the opener, In Haunts of Ancient Peace, are a signpost to Morrison's thematic preoccupations in the decade to follow. Even more seminal is Summertime in England, which sets sail for the Astral plane and stays largely on course thanks to the horn section of Mark Isham and Pee Wee Ellis, and Morrison's own hallucinatory incantation to his bardic precursors. Without these brave journeys, Morrison's soul-searching '80s trips would have sounded far different. --Sam Sutherland

    Groeten Uit Grollo

    Cuby & The Blizzards is relatively unknown to the English-speaking market but none the less the band has been famous in The Netherlands since the mid-'60s.


    The early work of Cuby & The Blizzards had a beat/punk orientation but soon they settled into a blues groove.
    Before the band recorded their own work they backed Van Morrison in the gap between his departure from Them and the beginning of his solo career.


    'Groeten Uit Grollo', Cuby & the Blizzards' second album , with Harry Muskee, Eelco Gelling, Nico Schröder, and Wim Kinds, was recorded with the legendary Dutch artist Herman Brood on keyboard as a replacement for Hans Kinds because he had been drafted.


    Harry Muskee, founder and lead singer, sadly passed away in September 2011. 'Groeten Uit Grollo' is still seen as the seminal album by Cuby & The Blizzards, as The Blizzards are seen as one of the most influential Blues bands in Holland.
    Muskee has sent us his last greetings, saying in one of his final songs: 'Time is running out, getting older every day.
    The only thing that's left for us is hit the road and play.'

    50th Anniversary Edition


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Presentation Of His Groundbreaking, Earth Shattering, Iconic 1963 Masterpiece


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original ATCO Records Tapes


    John Lee Hooker was absolutely one of the most prolific and rhythmic pioneers of the blues scene for most of his life. Recording his first 78's in the forties and rapidly becoming one of the most in demand bluesmen of his time, Hooker was truly an American legend of our modern times.


    With hundreds of songs and an untold amount of recordings and live performances throughout his
    lifetime, John Lee Hooker was also one of the most revered and interpreted songwriters. Major recording acts like Canned Heat, Johnny Winter, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Thorogood were all champions of this sorely missed icon.


    Fifty years ago, ATCO Records released one of the most important albums of his career with Don't Turn Me From Your Door - John Lee Hooker Sings His Blues. The dozen gems that make up this rural blues event would go on to become some of his most famous tunes including the title track which was covered by numerous rock and blues artists over the years like Savoy Brown and the terrific blues wailing of Drifting Blues, the rockin' Real Real Gone and of course another brilliant standard with My Baby Don't Love Me.


    The award winning giant of the blues continues with even more hard rockin' blues like Guitar Lovin' Man,
    Wobbling Baby and his fan favorite Stuttering Blues.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the artistry of the late great John Lee Hooker, and it is with much honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl 50th Anniversary release of his masterpiece Don't Turn Me From Your Door.


    Impeccably mastered by Joe "Bluesman" Reagoso (John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat/Johnny Winter) from
    the original ATCO Records tapes, John Lee Hooker's classic Don't Turn Me From Your Door will truly be one of the most anticipated blues releases of the year.


    To make your limited edition listening experience all the more entertaining, we are also including the very rare album cover graphics for the first time in fifty years, which will truly enhance the wonderful blues within by the legendary John Lee Hooker.

    It's Too Late To Stop Now

    Though he's released several fine live recordings over the course of his career, It's Too Late To Stop Now is the definitive live Van Morrison album. Van is backed here by a loose-but-funky, horn-driven band and the generous set list reaches as far back as his days with Them and continues up through his 1973 release Hard Nose Highway. Featured here are Van's wonderful re-interpretations of Muddy Waters (I Just Want To Make Love To You), Sonny Boy Williamson (Help Me) and Sam Cooke (Bring It On Home To Me) along with stunning versions of his classics Domino and Into The Mystic among others.

    Van Morrison's 1968 release, Astral Weeks remains not only his masterpiece, but one of the greatest records ever made.

    Van Morrison's second 1970 release, His Band And The Street Choir came on the heels of his legendary albums, Astral Weeks and Moondance and it serves as his ode to the R&B that inspired their success.

    Blowin' Your Mind

    Blowin' Your Mind, the first album by Van Morrison, is generally regarded as the warming up round to Astral Weeks (1968), a critically acclaimed masterpiece by this Northern Irish blues singer. But Blowin' Your Mind really is a masterpiece in its own right, containing truly epic tracks such as the megahit Brown Eyed Girl, the somewhat funky Goodbye Baby (Baby Goodbye) and Midnight Special, a traditional with a contemporary groove and infectious bass line.


    T.B. Sheets, one of the most real songs about death you'll ever hear, is a 10-minute organ packed blues jam about a dying girlfriend and one of the sweatiest and claustrophobic tunes to come out of the sixties. The latter song has been used to good effect as the sole soundtrack song to the highly recommended Nicholas Cage & Patricia Arquette movie Bringing Out The Dead (1999), and was also covered by John Lee Hooker.

    If You Leave...

    For the sessions, McEvoy recruited the talents of Grammy award-winning songwriter Jimmy Smyth on guitar, keyboard player James Delaney (Chuck Berry, Clannad), bassists Paul Moore (Van Morrison) & Eoghan O'Neill (Chris Rea, Moving Hearts) and drummer Des Lacey (Katie Melua), with special guests Brian Connor on piano and David Agnew on oboe. McEvoy is also joined by guest vocalist Mary Coughlan, Gemma Hayes and Hermione Hennessy with Sharon Shannon on the accordion for the song 'Secret of Living'.






    The song was written especially by McEvoy for a run of nine
    sell-out shows at The Olympia in Dublin to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the album 'A Woman's Heart', the third biggest-selling album in Irish chart history which helped to establish McEvoy as a star in her home country. McEvoy said, "I thought I should write a song for all the performers who were going to be featured in the show, something like The
    Outlaws or The Traveling Wilburys, where everyone gets a chance to sing."


    Among the twelve songs on 'If You Leave ' there are four cover versions, including The Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows', 'Lift The Wings' from the theatre show Riverdance, the Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly penned song 'True Colors' and Elmore James' 'Dust My Broom'. The latter serves as the album's encore and is McEvoy's salute to Brian Jones, who is believed to have taught his contemporaries the blues standard's slide guitar part.

    Song For Juli

    The former Youngbloods lead singer's 1972 solo masterpiece... over one year on the Billboard Album chart!


    While lead singer of The Youngbloods, Jesse Colin Young's legendary rock band took the nation by storm when their single Get Together became a worldwide #1 hit and a prominent soundtrack for peace. After seven albums with the group, Jesse released more than 15 celebrated solo albums including Song for Juli a work many critics agree is his solo masterpiece.


    Although it was his fourth solo album, Song for Juli was Young's first full-fledged effort under his own name. Jesse organized a versatile backup band in which piano, violin, and horns complemented his beautiful tenor voice in arrangements that recalled Van Morrison's Caledonia Soul Orchestra and featured familiar blues, country, and Cajun elements. In his lyrics, Young hewed closely to the current back-to-the-land philosophy, celebrating his family life (Juli is his daughter) and his Ridgetop retreat in Marin County, CA.


    Young's fans responded strongly to Song for Juli, giving it a higher chart placing than any album The Youngbloods ever made and keeping it in the charts longer than any album he ever made.


    This is 70's California pop at it's best and the album is enjoyable from the first note to the last and shows the breadth of Young's stylistic talents. Solid songs, solid rhythm section, brilliant solos, perfect piano parts and one of the most distinctive voices in pop music. There are no disconcerting interludes here. You've got rock, jazz, country, and Cajun all smoothly rolled into one.

    Waterboys


    Reissued On 180gm Vinyl, With Original Artwork And Audio Cut From 2002 Digital Remaster


    Available On Vinyl For The First Time


    The Waterboys' eponymous debut album finds Mike Scott essaying his vision of big music. Part Van Morrison, part U2, it was sweeping and romantic, with nearly every song stretched out to epic length.

    Unconditionally Guaranteed

    The most reviled album of Captain Beefheart's entire career, 1974's ironically titled Unconditionally Guaranteed unfortunately largely deserves its negative reputation. Recorded in the U.K. as the first album of Captain Beefheart's contract with Virgin Records, it's also the last album that features any members of the Trout Mask Replica-era band, notably guitarists Zoot Horn Rollo and Alex St. Clair, plus former Mothers of Invention percussionist Art Tripp. Rather like Van Morrison's later album, A Period of Transition, Unconditionally Guaranteed is clearly a deliberate attempt by the Captain to restrain his more peculiar tendencies in search of a wider audience. As might be expected, the wider audience didn't show up, and his longtime fans were put off by the album's more commercial facets. It's not an entirely useless album, as the tunes do have some of the blues-rock punch that's at the root of Beefheart's work, and the lyrics, mostly declarations of love for his wife, Jan Van Vliet, who receives co-writing credit with producer Andy DiMartino on all ten tracks, seem heartfelt enough. The problem is that DiMartino's production and arrangements are flaccid and dull, and Beefheart (purposely) sings as if he's half asleep throughout. Even Captain Beefheart himself disowns this record.

    Inarticulate Speech Of The Heart

    Inarticulate Speech of the Heart is the fourteenth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison - Originally released in 1983


    Morrison said he arrived at the title from a Shavian saying: that idea of communicating with as little articulation as possible, at the same time being emotionally articulate.


    One of music's true originals Van Morrison's unique and inspirational musical legacy is rooted in postwar Belfast. Born in 1945 Van heard his Shipyard worker father's collection of blues, country and gospel early in life.Feeding off musical greats such as Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Muddy Waters, Mahalia Jackson and Leadbelly he was a travelling musician at 13 and singing, playing guitar and sax, in several bands, before forming Them in 1964.Making their name at Belfast's Maritime Club Them soon established Van as a major force in the British R&B scene. Morrison's matchless vocal and songwriting talents produced instant classics such as the much covered 'Gloria' and 'Here Comes The Night'.Those talents found full astonishing range in Van's solo career.After working with Them's New York producer Bert Berns on beautiful Top 40 pop hit 'Brown Eyed Girl' (1967), Morrison moved to another realm.


    With one of the most revered catalogues in music history and his unparalleled talents as composer, singer and performer Morrison's past achievements loom large. But, as throughout his extraordinary career, how that past informs his future achievements and still stirs excitement and keen anticipation.

    Bill Withers' Greatest Hits (Awaiting Repress)

    Bill Withers Bill Withers' Greatest Hits on Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Bill Withers' Smooth Soul Voice, Mellow Grooves, and Gospel Accents Inform Beloved Work: Booker T. Jones, Al Jackson, and Stephen Stills Among Guest Instrumentalists on Greatest Hits


    Essential Bill Withers' Greatest Hits Compilation Includes Ubiquitous Classics Such as Ain't No Sunshine, Lean on Me, Lovely Day, Use Me, and Grandma's Hands


    Mobile Fidelity 180g LP Pressed at RTI: Roots R&B Has Never Sounded Better on Any Format


    Bill Withers created mellow, downhome-style soul for barely more than a decade before retreating from the industry to pursue craftsman interests. Yet over the course of the handful of albums he made for Sussex and CBS, the Appalachian native struck lasting emotional chords in legends ranging from Booker T. Jones to Stephen Stills - not to mention the millions of listeners that fell under the spell of now-standard tracks such as Lean on Me, Use Me, and Ain't No Sunshine. The antithesis of the sweaty R&B shouter that prowled the edge of stages, Withers dealt in calm and vulnerability, qualities that come to fore on the seminal Bill Withers' Greatest Hits.


    Pressed on 180g LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's vinyl reissue of the 1981 compilation provides a transparent view of Withers' relaxing timbre and the subtle grooves underlining his arrangements. Characteristics ranging from the tension of the guitars, funky bends of the bass, whisper-soft coo of the formal strings, airiness of the backing harmonies, and sharpness of the snare drum emerge with utmost clarity and lifelike presence. Always prized for its naked honesty and pure conviction, Withers' music positively caresses the senses on this LP, the unadulterated production and beautiful soundscapes revealed anew with each listen.


    Incredibly, Withers almost never got a shot at recording. After receiving a deal from Sussex while laboring as a toilet-seat manufacturer, he landed in the care of Stax bandleader Booker T. Jones, who gathered most of his fellow MG members - along with Stills and Jim Keltner - to assist in Withers' debut. Two takes from those sessions, the Grammy-winning Ain't No Sunshine and devotional Grandma's Hands, are included here, and showcase the vocalist's incredible breath control, folksy drawl, and restrained phrasing. They also indicate his penchant for converting biographical experience into eminently catchy combinations of pop, gospel, blues, and soul.


    Evidence of Withers' crossover appeal is found not only via his chart successes on both the pop and R&B charts, but in the DNA of his best work. There's not one forgettable moment on Greatest Hits. Covered by the likes of Fiona Apple, Mick Jagger, Isaac Hayes, Alicia Keys, and dozens more, Use Me rides a riveting clarinet riff and urban tempo to express the double-edged feelings associated with an edgy relationship. On the loping Who Is He (And What Is He to You?), Withers again splits the bitter and sweet. For the Latin-tinged Lovely Day, Withers holds a single note for 18 seconds and composed a song that's been sampled and rerecorded countless times by artists spanning Diana Ross to R. Kelly. And with Lean on Me, the West Virginian devised a masterpiece that's been for more than four decades part of the classic American songbook, an updated hymn carried to immortality by members of the Charles Wright & 103rd Street Rhythm Band.


    A veritable template for British soul contemporaries like Sam Smith and an extension of the timeless fare explored by Van Morrison, Curtis Mayfield, and Al Green, Bill Withers' Greatest Hits belongs in every music lover's library.

    The Grace EP's (Box Set)

    180 Gram 5 LP Box Set


    Includes a Full Color Jacket, A Double Sided Full Color Insert and a 12mm Spined Outer Sleeve.


    Music On Vinyl is proudly re-releasing The Jeff Buckley Grace EPs on vinyl. This unique package contains 5 180g 12 vinyl records each in their own full colour jacket, a double sided full colour insert and a 12mm spined outer sleeve.


    In the space of one studio album, and a number of recorded live performances, Jeff Buckley managed to carve out a global cult following. With so little studio output available, fans of Jeff Buckley have inevitably been drawn back time and time again to the masterpiece that is Grace, becoming familiar with every detail of every song.


    The five discs that make up The Grace EPs are a collection of live performances and a few studio versions from songs that appeared on Buckley's seminal debut album. A few b-sides are also included. Indeed two of these (Peyote Radio Theatre and So Real) were promotional-only releases that weren't commercially available. The others were rare imports: Last Goodbye came out in Japan, Live From the Bataclan in France, and The Grace EP in Australia.


    Jeff Buckley toured the globe extensively, performing countless shows in support of his music.
    The Grace EPs capture some of the majesty of his stage presence. So what of the music contained here? First of all this is no skimpy collection - adding up to more than two hours even though there are just three to five songs on each disc. The perfect supplement to the Grace album, it contains live versions (sometimes more than one) of five songs from that record, as well as a few edit versions, a Nag Champa Mix of Dream Brother, and a 13- minute live 'Chocolate Version' of Mojo Pin.


    Perhaps more interesting to collectors will be a few cover tunes not on Grace: a whopping 12-minute version of Van Morrison's The Way Young Lovers Do, a medley of Je N'En Connais Pas la Fin/Hymne A l'Amour, Hank Williams's Lost Highway, and a 14-minute take on Alex Chilton's Kanga-Roo. And there is, finally, a bonus track added to the The Grace EP (the only song in the package not on the original EPs), Tongue, a spooky ambient 11-minute studio instrumental.


    If you're a devoted Buckley-phile, this set is for you. It's beautifully put together, with crisp sound quality in the live performances, and captures Buckley's tremendous flair for stage improvisation.
