In July 1965, when Their First LP was originally released, the Spencer Davis Group-the band that launched Steve Winwood's career-was just one of the many aspiring young groups on the British beat scene.

charts. Featuring 5 bonus tracks, including Otis Redding's "She Put The Hurt On Me", Etta James' "I'll Drown In My Own Tears", "I'm Getting Better" and "Goodbye Stevie", all from their 1965 EP, plus "Stevie's Blues", the B side to their 1966 single "Somebody Help Me".1. My Babe

ClaptonCo-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, Clapton features an all star cast of musical collaborations started with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmond-and the sessions later added guests including Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks. Clapton created a collection that touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals. The result is both relaxed and revelatory, and unlike anything the guitarist has done in his legendary career.
This album wasn't what it was intended to be at all, it's actually better than it was meant to be because, in a way, I just let it happen. It's an eclectic collection of songs that weren't really on the map and I like it so much because if it's a surprise to the fans, that's only because it's a surprise to me, as well. - Eric Clapton01 Travelin' Alone

Even further classics ensued with each of the hard rockin' ten tracks that make up this masterwork. How about the smash sounds of Pearly Queen or another Winwood and Capaldi classic Means To An End, plus more Dave Mason treasures like You Can All Join In or Don't Be Sad.

The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys40th 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.

Mastered Impeccably At Friday Music - Pressed At R.T.I.
Featuring: Edgar Winter, Vinnie Vincent (Formerly Of Kiss), G.E. Smith (Hall & Oates / Bob Dylan)
In 1978, mega artist Dan Hartman (Free Ride, I Can Dream About You, Living In America) was sitting on top of the world. After a long
tenure performing with superstars like Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter and The Edgar Winter Group, Dan rewarded his fans once again with
one of the most important club and pop songs of the era with Instant Replay. Featuring the classic line-up of Dan Hartman, Vinnie Vincent
(Kiss), G.E. Smith (Bob Dylan) and former bandmate Edgar Winter, the Instant Replay album rapidly became one of the most definitive albums of his very successful career.
The LP kicks off with the #1 title track Instant Replay and simmers on with the lengthy dance smash Countdown/This Is It. His rock and
funk side continues with even more classics like Double-O-Love and the brilliant Time And Space, making this one of most popular albums
of the time and continues to be heard on radio and in dance halls all over the world.
Friday Music is no stranger to the stunning recordings of Dan Hartman and his affiliations with our other artists Johnny Winter and The Edgar Winter Group. Therefore, it is with much excitement to announce the legendary Dan Hartman masterpiece Instant Replay. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Johnny Winter/Isley Brothers/ Instant Funk) at Friday Music Studios and pressed at RTI, this stunning LP was long overdue for the audiophile vinyl domain.
Dan Hartman would go on later to become one of the top recording artists, composers and record producers of our time. Collaborating
with such diverse artists as Joe Cocker, Stevie Winwood and James Brown, his career ended with his untimely passing in 1994.
In honor of the late artist and this amazing album, we are presenting Instant Replay for the first time on translucent RED Vinyl with a limited edition gatefold cover. We believe this wonderful new audiophile release of Instant Replay will become one of the most anticipated dance and classic rock/pop releases of the year!

This Is PILPublic Image Limited's new self-funded 12-track set, their first in 20 years, is entitled This Is PIL, and will be released on the band's own label PIL Official via Cargo UK Distribution. All the new material was recorded in the UK last year at Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds.
John Lydon talks about This Is PIL: "Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention.'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrousness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' Well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments.
Following on from their monumental live performance at BBC Radio 6 Birthday Celebrations at Queen Elizabeth Hall on Friday March 16th which saw PIL include and baptize 2 new songs: Deeper Water and One Drop, PIL also played two very special shows at London's Heaven showcasing more tracks from the new album with The Times commenting "This was an evening of uncompromising art music, worthy of the total concentration of the audience."
The track One Drop has now also received airplay from BBC Radio 6, XFM and Absolute Radio. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time PIL's music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 Singles and 5 UK Top 20 Albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound former Sex Pistol frontman John Lydon formed Public Image Ltd in 1978, guiding the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 through to 1992's That What Is Not, before a 17 year hiatus. John then resurrected PIL in 2009 playing live worldwide. Now after 20 years yet another new and unique chapter is set to unfold in the shape of new PIL material!
Lu Edmonds, multi-instrumentalist and former guitarist in The Damned joined PIL in 1986 recording and playing on the album Happy? and co-writing the album 9, adding yet another dimension to the PIL sound. Bruce Smith, former drummer in The Pop Group and The Slits became percussionist for PIL, also in 1986, playing and recording on the albums Happy? and 9.

Post TropicalIn 2014, Vagrant releases Post Tropical , the second full-length, studio album by Dublin's James Vincent McMorrow.
On a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border, Post Tropical was born - a collection of sounds and ideas brought to life in rooms where the low
frequencies of passing freight trains vibrated in the studio, briefly disturbing the birds in the rafters. And like most new ideas, Post Tropical is hard to
describe. It requires attention and engagement. It seduces you towards hidden depths.
James Vincent McMorrow's acclaimed debut album, Early in the Morning , reached number 1 in Ireland, went platinum and picked up a Choice Music
Prize nomination upon its release in 2010. Along the way, there were shows everywhere from the Royal Festival Hall to Later...with Jools Holland, and a
breakout hit in the charity cover of Steve Winwood's 'Higher Love'. McMorrow's first record was the formative sounds of a songwriter who suddenly found
people giving a damn. "I'm so proud of that album, but I never longed to be a guy with a guitar. You play these songs live as best you can, and suddenly
you're a Folk musician. But the texture of this record is completely different. This is the kind of stuff that makes sense to me."1. Cavalier

Comic actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd rightfully get credit for exposing many people to the music of Blues and R&B veterans. The soundtrack to their hugely successful musical comedy Blues Brothers was released on June 20, 1980 as the second album by the Blues Brothers Band, which also toured that year to promote the film.
The rollicking remake of the Spencer Davis Group's Gimme Some Lovin' was a Billboard Top 20 hit, featuring an arrangement notable for the horn section that replaces Steve Winwood's rumbling organ work. Ray Charles has a good time with Shake a Tail Feather, and he's helped out by Jake and Elwood Blues (Belushi and Aykroyd, respectively). The cover of Solomon Burke's Everybody Needs Somebody to Love is a lot of fun, thanks to the great overall rhythm and Elwood's lightning-fast stage rap, while James Brown and the Reverend James Cleveland Choir provide a blast of gospel music on Old Landmark. Aretha Franklin's Think is explosive, and Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher is slyly irresistible.
