Young Guns SoundtrackThe Young Guns original motion picture score has never been released until now!
Released in 1988, Young Guns is an action-packed cult classic 80s western that tells the story of Billy the Kid (Emilio Estevez) and the Regulators (Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Lou Diamond Phillips, Dermot Mulroney and Casey Siemaszko) exacting revenge upon the Santa Fe Ring during the Lincoln County War in 1878. As good as the movie is, the score is what makes it great!
Composed by Anthony Marinelli & Brian Banks, the Young Guns score brilliantly embodies the off-kilter, emotionally unstable characteristics of Billy the Kid, both the man and the myth. It is epic and powerful, but equally haunting with an underlying melancholy tone.
The album is mastered from the original recordings and pressed on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl for the enhanced listening pleasure of all you audiophiles out there!1. Main Title

Johnny Cash Greatest Hits Volume 1First Time on Audiophile Vinyl
Gatefold Cover presentation of his classic 1967 multi-platinum Greatest Hits LP!!!
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray from the original Columbia Records tapes
Manufactured at R.T.I.
Johnny Cash was born during the great depression into a poor family in Arkansas. At a very young age he worked on the family farm
and experienced many of life's struggles. This is also the time he would develop his love for music, family and the Bible, which followed him
closely throughout his long career. In the early fifties after spending time in the Air Force, he moved to Memphis, became friends with folks
like Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, and ultimately cut some sides at Sun Studios which became the catalyst
that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar, troubadour and humanitarian unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at Columbia Records knew that this young fellow named Johnny Cash was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed
the legend to a long term deal, and his first Columbia singles like his prolific Don't Take Your Guns to Town forever etched "The Man In Black"
trademark to his name.
In 1967 after many chart topping country and pop albums and a bevy of hit singles and Grammy Awards, more fame followed as the
brass at Columbia Records honored their journeyman Johnny Cash with his first hits collection, the multi-platinum Johnny Cash's Greatest
Hits Volume 1.
The album was a blockbuster as it topped the charts, making this a crossover hit with both country and pop audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit.
Filled with more hits than a roadside jukebox, the amazing album takes off with the classic duet with wife June Carter Cash and
Grammy Award winner Jackson. This chart topping single is followed up by one of his most famous songs the number one I Walk the Line.
More treasures follow with the country belter Understand Your Man and Cash's own hit interpretation of Orange Blossom Special, which truly
made the album a treasure trove of hits.
More greatest hits follow as the LP features a nice helping of solid smashes like Ring of Fire, Five Feet High and Rising, the aforementioned Don't Take Your Guns to Town, and probably one of the first Bob Dylan covers ever with his haunting It Ain't Me Babe. In total, the
album showcases eleven important Johnny Cash recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time.
In honor of the Man, the Music and the Legend, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Columbia Records classic Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits Volume 1 by Johnny Cash.

The Caliph's Tea Party (On Sale)For The Caliph's Tea Party, Gonjasufi assembled a collection of artists in his musical world and invited them to exchange ideas. In this spirit, the symbolic and musical centerpiece of the album, as well as its namesake, is the result of the mutual admiration formed between Gonjasufi and Broadcast and The Focus Group. A bewitching, drastic re-working of DedNd it takes the form of a suite of layered compositions and radiophonic transmissions.
Elsewhere, reinterpretations from new talents shine while established artists continue to surprise. Mark Pritchard (Harmonic313, Africa Hitech) channels Ennio Morricone with epic orchestral dystopia on his remix of Ancestors while retaining the inherent gravity of Flying Lotus' original production. Young guns Shlomo and Jeremiah Jae eschew their labeling as beatmakers and tap into a fractured emotional core within Change and Holidays, respectively, giving them new leases on life as subtly mechanized melancholia. Bibio smooths out the rough edges of Candylane for a remix indebted to the 1980's R&B leftfield, while Brooklyn's Bear In Heaven and Oneohtrix Point Never deal in heavy motorik meditations and ethereal musique concrete.1.

Home CountiesFirst Album From Seminal Indie-Dance Act Since Their Critically Acclaimed 2012 Album, 'Words And Music'
Double Black Vinyl With 9 Custom Shiny Stickers To Apply Directly On Gatefold Front Cover
Home Counties contains 19 'tracks' inspired by the band's bitter-sweet relationship with the eponymous shires that have always been part of their lives.
It was recorded in the summer and autumn of 2016 and co-produced by Shawn Lee of Wall Of Sound and Young Gun Silver Fox fame.
Sarah Cracknell says: "We had so much fun writing for this album, drawing influence from our teenage years growing up in the home counties. Bob, Pete and I led almost parallel lives while I was in Windsor and they were in Surrey, developing our passion for music and London. Shawn Lee was a joy to work with, he's a wonderful multi-instrumentalist who seemed to have some kind of telepathy with us and translated our ideas perfectly. The record is quite varied in styles and brings together a little something from all our past albums whilst sounding completely new."
Bob Stanley says "Suburbia's anonymity is exactly why it's a source of inspiration. They said it couldn't happen here - and it didn't."
Whilst Pete added "We took a ride and ran with the dogs"LP 1

The River & The ThreadI went back to where I was born, and these songs started arriving in me, says Rosanne Cash. All these things happened that made me feel a deeper connection to the South than I ever had. We started finding these great stories, and the melodies that went with those experiences.
With The River and the Thread, Cash has added the next chapter to a remarkable period of creativity. Her last two albums, Black Cadillac (2006) and The List (2009), were both nominated for Grammy Awards; The List-an exploration of essential songs as selected and given to Rosanne by her father, Johnny Cash-was also named Album of the Year by the Americana Music Association. In addition, her best-selling 2010 memoir, Composed, was described by the Chicago Tribune as one of the best accounts of an American life you will likely ever read.
Cash, who has charted 21 Top 40 country singles, including 11 Number Ones, wrote all of the new album's songs with her longtime collaborator (and husband) John Leventhal, who also served as producer, arranger, and guitarist. Featuring a long list of guests-from young guns like John Paul White (The Civil Wars) and Derek Trucks to such legends as John Prine and Tony Joe White-The River and the Thread is a kaleidoscopic examination of the geographic, emotional, and historic landscape of the American South. The album's unique sound, which draws from country, blues, gospel, and rock, reflects the soulful mix of music that traces its history to the region.
Rosanne Cash acknowledges that, even with fifteen albums and four books behind her, it was difficult to start writing songs again after spending several years immersed in the masterful compositions featured on The List. You cannot keep that in your mind, except as an inspiration, a standard to aspire to, she says. To say, 'I'm going to write a song as great as Take These Chains'-you're not! So the only way to not get dismantled by that is to stay connected to your own muse, and immerse yourself completely in what you're doing so it can be as rich and authentic as it can possibly be. That's all you can hope for.
With The River and the Thread, she has risen to that challenge-and emerged with a beautiful and haunting album, one of the finest works in an extraordinary career.1. A Feather's Not A Bird

Sleeping Through The WarProduced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons)
and mixed/engineered by UK-bred young-gun Eddie Spear, All Them Witches'
"Sleeping Through The War" is the quartet's most bold and well-crafted record
to date. The album's creation marks the f irst time in the band's history that
a record was written before entering the studio. This process allowed for an
alignment of the band's art, desire and time. Convening in Nashville for only
six days after a year of relentlessly touring their New West Records debut
"Dying Surfer Meets Their Maker," the band's spirit coalesced in a rhythm of
statement and melody that simply needs to be heard...repeatedly.
With the guidance of Cobb and Spear, "Sleeping Through The War" captures the
truest energy of the group, full blast, fun and contemplative. The record was
made with volume in mind. "Sleeping Through The War" is meant to be played
loud, cranked up and without reservation. Feel it live through your stereo
system or listen to it speak in tongues through your headphones.
The sounds are nothing without the songs and the songs are nothing without
the lyrics. This record is a result of constant touring, world travel,
overstimulated/divided humanity, and a learning of awareness and compassion.

altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their
bummers like Blue Cheer." - Spin1. Bulls

Two Universes (Awaiting Repress)"A new generation of musicians are embracing their roots in Acadiana, but none with the rock and roll edge of Feufollet" - Garden and Gun Magazine
"Downright radical... Feufollet's innovations only bring out the edge and gumption of Cajun music" - New York Times
Although Feufollet has often been hailed as the future of Cajun music, a more current assessment must admit that they are now the present of Cajun music. Once idolized at at early age for their precocious musicianship and sent all over the world as youthful emblems of Acadiana's cultural resurgence, the members of Feufollet have, in the meantime, grown into the music as young adults.
While Feufollet remains central to the neotraditionalist brush fire they helped ignite as youths, their last album, En Couleurs found the band coming into its own and pushing the envelope, leading the way once again as Cajun music extends itself into a new century. It was praised by the New York Times, Garden & Gun and Elvis Costello who proclaimed "[En Couleurs] is the most beautifully melodic album I've heard all year". The album was nominated for a Grammy award in 2011.
The sextet now includes singer/multi-instrumentalist Kelli Jones-Savoy and keyboardist Andrew Toups. Two Universes, the long awaited follow up to En Couleurs, was recorded and produced by Danny Reicsh at his studio in Austin, TX during the summer of 2013 and early 2014.1. Tired of Your Tears

Santa CruzReared on a hefty diet of 80's glam rock Americana á la Guns N' Roses and such, Santa Cruz are a rock 'n' roll sensation, who, despite their very young age have hosted numerous rock clubs of their own in their native Hellsinki Rock City, scoring hordes of stark-raving-mad fans and reaping attention and endorsements from peers and media alike. The German rock magazine Stalker even recommends it to their readers that they plan their Finnish vacations around Santa Cruz's tour dates.
If there ever was a band that looks completely out of place in their hometown, it would have to be Santa Cruz. Whereas contemplating suicide in a snowdrift, drunk out of one's skull, comes naturally for the inherently dark and brooding Finns, something as sunny, positive and unlawfully h-h-h-hot as Santa Cruz shouldn't probably be even possible on these semi-Arctic ice-ridden shores! It's just that tracks like "High on You" with its shimmering harmonies, rabidly energetic "Let's Get the Party Started" and "Aiming High" which probably possesses the sickest guitar riff in Finnish rock and metal this side of 1986, will prove to you, the Santa Cruz brand of rock 'n' roll works like an intravenous shot of Adrenaline! The top-notch songwriting and guitar chops from Hell will leave your jaws ajar and with Archie's unbridled yelps, at times you'd be willing to bet your cojones that it's the ghost of Bill Bailey singing - no small feat considering that Mr. Bailey is still very much alive! No wonder the Santa Cruz gigs are infamous of getting a wee bit unhinged at times!
Without further ado, let's round it out with the endorsement of a guy who knows what the f**k he's talking about: "Never mind that they are young, 'cuz the matter of the fact is, that Santa Cruz definitely sticks out from all these retro hair metal bands running around nowadays. Not only do they have the attitude and the looks, but most importantly they sure as hell know how to play and the songs along with the awesome guitar playing pretty much makes me wanna bang my head in two pieces when I see them play live.

Givin' It BackGivin' It Back is the ninth album released by The Isley Brothers on their T-Neck imprint in 1971. After years of having white Rock acts covering their most famed material, particularly, Shout and Twist And Shout, the Isleys decided to do the same to music made famous by white artists such as Stephen Stills, Eric Burdon and Neil Young.
Among the songs they covered were Spill The Wine, Love The One You're With, the social commentary medley of Ohio and Machine Gun (from Jimi Hendrix), Fire And Rain by James Taylor and Bob Dylan's Lay Lady Lay. The Isleys' perseverance paid off when their covers of Love The One You're With, Lay Lady Lay and Spill The Wine became charted hits.

Stoughton Printing Old-Style Tip-On Jacket
Edward Joseph Mahoney, a Brooklyn-born second-generation cop who eventually ditched his badge and gun to pursue his rock star dreams as Eddie Money - struck gold right off the bat with his 1977 self-titled debut album.
The record's leadoff single, Baby Hold On, was actually its biggest hit, but the follow-up single Two Tickets to Paradise, was a sort of spiritual cousin to Bruce Springsteen's Rosalita (Come Out Tonight). It's written from the perspective of a young guy who's desperately trying to convince his girlfriend to ignore her disapproving parents and come away with him on a trip so far away from here. With its smooth production, urgent uptempo chorus, and insistent melodic hook, Tickets was a natural for late '70s FM radio - where it found an immediate home, eventually working its way all the way up to No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Although Money might have written Two Tickets to Paradise to convince a specific girl to leave town with him, its title became shorthand for that end-of-the-work-week feeling you get when you've fulfilled all of your responsibilities to the Man and you're free to relax without obligations for a little while - like, say, at at an Eddie Money concert, where Tickets has remained a constant fixture of the set list for more than 30 years.

Cold FactFirst Official Reissue!
Mastered from the Original Tapes
Co-produced by Motown Guitar God Dennis Coffey & Mike Theodore
Featuring Members of the Legendary Motown Players The Funk Bros.
Limited Edition Vinyl LP on 180 Gram Wax
Its one of the lost classics of the 60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in colour and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion. The album is Cold Fact, and whats more intriguing is that its maker a shadowy figure known as Rodriguez was, for many years, lost too. A decade ago, he was rediscovered working as a menial day laborer in Detroit, Michigan. He was unaware that his defining album had become not only a cult classic, but for the people of South Africa, a beacon of revolution.
Rodriguez recorded Cold Fact his debut album in 1969, and released it in March 1970. Its crushingly good stuff, filled with tales of bad drugs, lost love, and itchy-footed songs about life in late 60s inner-city America. Gun sales are soaring/Housewives find life boring/Divorce the only answer/Smoking causes cancer, says the Dylan-esque
But the album sank without trace, thanks, in part, to some of Rodriguezs more idiosyncratic behavior, like performing at an industry showcase with his back to the audience throughout. When the follow-up, 1972s Coming From Reality, also sold poorly, Rodriguez called an end to his recording career. Hed never even played a proper gig. And he got on with life. Over the years, he turned his hand to local politics, gaining a degree in philosophy, factory work and eventually, hard labour.
As his music career became a memory, Rodriguezs legend was growing on the other side of the world. In South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Cold Fact had become a major word of mouth success, particularly among young people in the South African armed forces, who identified with its counter-cultural bent. But Rodriguez was an enigma not even the label knew where to find him and his demise became the subject of debate and conjecture. Some rumours said hed died of a drug overdose or burned to death on stage. Others said he was in a mental institution, or in prison for murdering his girlfriend. Barring a couple of sold out Australian tours in 1979 and 1981, nothing had been heard of him for almost 30 years.
But the tide began to turn in 1996, when journalist Craig Bartholemew set out to get to the bottom of the mystery. After many dead ends, he found Rodriguez alive, well, free and perfectly sane in Detroit, ending years of speculation. Rodriguez himself had no idea about his fame in South Africa (the album had gone multi-platinum, Rodriguez has received not so much as a Rand in royalties), and embarked on a triumphant South African tour followed, filling 5,000 capacity venues across the country. A documentary named Dead Men Dont Tour: Rodriguez in South Africa 1998 was screened on national TV.

Last Of A Dyin' BreedLegendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd returns with a fiery slice of Southern style guitar rock heaven in Last of a Dyin' Breed, their newest release on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records.
This is the kind of record guaranteed to feed the needs of the multi-generational Skynyrd Nation, and continue the renewed vigor the band exhibited with their last album, 2009's God & Guns.
For the passionate, longtime fans of the band, this is Skynyrd at the top of their game, complete with instantly memorable songs, more hooks than a tackle box, and a blistering three-guitar attack at full power.
From the raging guitars of the title track and the pounding, funky homage to local talent in Home Grown to the mind-blowing Honey Hole, Lynyrd Skynyrd sound like young bucks having one hell of a good time, which, regarding the latter, founding member Gary Rossington says is very much the case.1.

We Are Volsung (Out of Stock)They were the prime mover, they preached back seat education, together with Alice Cooper they fed Frankenstein....Now they are back, meaner, leaner and heavier than ever. Zodiac Mindwrap & The Love Reaction now enter a new decade of heavy, dirty street rock n roll and they declare We are Volsung. Inspired by Nordic mythology, the album features 10 brand new unadulterated songs including a track with the German title Stark von Oben (translation: strong from above).
1985: In a musical world of hairspray and spandex, two long haired leather clad rockers were introduced to each other by their exotic dancer girlfriends. One, a graphic artist and poet. The other, a budding philosopher. They immediately dropped everything, joined forces and created the dirtiest, wildest band of all time. One year later, they signed to Polygram, released, first the ground breaking High Priest of Love EP, and subsequently the Tattooed Beat Messiah album, containing the well received single Prime Mover. Over night, they accidentally changed the look of all the rock bands of the time from the obligatory spandex, eye liner and tinsel, to rough biker jackets, engineer boots and goatee beards.
Mötley CrÜe declared them to be their favorite band and immediately restyled themselves for the Girls, Girls, Girls record. ZMATLR grew in notoriety, touring the world and America, co-headlining arenas and theatres with Guns `N` Roses and finding themselves at home in the U.K. playing festivals and baseball stadiums with Iron Maiden. After attending a Hammersmith Odeon ZMATLR concert and giving it his seal of approval, Alice Cooper then recorded the Zodiac Mindwarp penned Feed My Frankenstein, later performed in the film Waynes World. The critical acclaim of ZMATLR then caused rare misfortune, when they lost their young naive bass player to the lures of The Cult. The band soldiered on regardless. Sometime later, in Paris, Slam Thunderhide, their drummer decided to put down his sticks to become a go-go dancer in Vancouver.
Present day: With The Cat shaking the Earth on Drums and Jack Shitt rumbling the low frequencies, they ride again, honing their skills playing for the Viking descendants in Scandinavia. From these tough, manly ordeals, a new set of recordings have been forged. We Are Volsung is the result, a celebration in the Norse tradition, 10 songs of pure, unadulterated rock.1. Stark Von Oben
