A fixture on the international music scene since 1981, Falco has been described by The New York Times as “A singer, guitarist and researcher of musical arcana who hasn’t let his increasingly technical expertise and idiomatic mastery compromise the clarity of his vision.” At the start of a scorching hot July in Memphis this year, Falco and his distinguished group of American/Euro vagabonds ensconced themselves at Sam Phillips Recording Service studios in Memphis. The lineup includes bassist Mike Watt (Minutemen, the Stooges), guitarist Mario Monterosso, and drummer Toby Dammit (currently the touring keyboardist in Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds). The album comes on a holiday red color LP, exclusively for Black Friday.

MORE INFO

Highly respected record label Light In The Attic is celebrating the 50th anniversary of 1960s sunshine-pop band The Free Design's debut album, Kites Are Fun, on limited edition colored vinyl. Kites Are Fun is a sunshine-bubblegum-daisy-puppy pop masterpiece that stands the test of time. Fans of the Beach Boys will wonder how they ever overlooked this 1967 gem, long admired by the likes of Beck, Madlib, and Belle & Sebastian. The Free Design was born out of the the Greenwich Village scene of 1966, and before disbanding in 1972, they had released six albums with tightly-knit vocal arrangements and intricately beautiful melodies. Nine of the songs on their debut Kites Are Fun are originals, notably the title track, which became an instant soft-pop classic. Well-chosen covers, including the Beatles' "Michelle" and Simon & Garfunkels' "The 59th Street Bridge Song," complete the collection. For Record Store Day Black Friday 2017, Light In The Attic is proud to introduce The Free Design to a whole new generation of listeners.

Blank Generation (40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

DETAILS

Date: 11/24/2017
Format: 2 x CD
Label: Rhino/WB
Quantity: 2500
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ Blank Generation is an iconic album that has influenced countless rock bands with its image, its attitude, and its blistering performances. Released in 1977 on Sire Records, the album was received ecstatically by critics such as Lester Bangs and the New York Times’ Robert Palmer (who called it one of the ten best albums of the decade), but as was the case with most original “punk” albums, it wouldn’t get mainstream recognition for decades. Now its place in music history is secure as one of punk’s most significant records. Recently, Rolling Stone magazine lauded Blank Generation as one of the “40 Greatest Punk Albums of All Time,” giving the innovative and literate band its well deserved credit on the cusp of its 40th anniversary.

This seminal album is being recognized on its 40th anniversary this year with limited edition double-CD and double-LP deluxe editions to be released on Record Store Day’s Black Friday. Produced for release by Richard Hell, the album has been expertly remastered—by Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound, who mastered the original LP—as well as restored to its original 1977 track listing and sleeve imagery. BLANK GENERATION: 40th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION includes a second disc, with previously unreleased, alternate studio versions, out-of-print singles, and rare bootleg live tracks from the band’s first appearance in 1976 at CBGB. The booklet also contains many previously unpublished photos of the band by Roberta Bayley (the renowned CBGB photographer who shot the LP’s original cover), a revealing essay by Hell along with compelling images from his notebooks and private papers, and an extensive new interview with Ivan Julian by Hell.

After establishing his reputation as founder of legendary bands the Heartbreakers and Television, Hell went onto to lead the Voidoids which included Robert Quine (who later played in Lou Reed’s Blue Mask band, as well as for Tom Waits, John Zorn, and many others), Ivan Julian (who would record for Matthew Sweet and numerous other artists) and Marc Bell (“Marky Ramone”). Along with the Ramones, Television, Blondie and Talking Heads, Hell and his band helped to define the early New York “first wave” punk scene. The song “Blank Generation” became a slogan and an anthem and later was emulated by the Sex Pistols for their track, “Pretty Vacant.”

Such songs as “Love Comes In Spurts” and “Blank Generation” were originally recorded at Electric Lady Studios, but were re-recorded prior to release at Plaza Sound during Sire Records’ transition to Warner Bros. Records in 1977. At Plaza Hell reworked the album, leaving behind alternate versions and outtakes from Electric Lady that now appear on the second discs of these deluxe editions. The music sounds as fresh and abrasive today as when it was first released.

Hell retired from music in 1984, refocusing on writing as his vocation. He’s the author of two novels and several books of nonfiction including his acclaimed autobiography, I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp.

MORE INFO

In the early 1980s, Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda formed an ashram in Agora Hills, California. There a beautiful, multi-ethnic and multi generational religious community grew up around her. The highpoint of living in this very special and loving environment took shape on Sundays when Alice would lead the community in a musical ceremony, mixing both gospel and Indian chant, to create a music she wholly invented - it was something extraordinarily powerful. The Ashram is still there today. There are still some who live there and there is still a weekly Sunday service that is open for everyone.
The folks who populated the Ashram world of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda were a very special group of people. Many of the adult members were musicians before having moved there, and many of the younger followers have become musicians and film makers as they grew older. One these amazing artists is John Panduranga Henderson.
Panduranga played organ, piano and sang with Ray Charles in the 1970's where he was a star performer in Ray's band. When he joined the Ashram, he became in essence a star performer there as well, though of course there were no 'stars'. Alice sitting at the organ would say, "Panduranga" and John would come to the front and let loose one of his amazing gospel-esque solos praising Rama or Vishnu or Jesus, Muhammad, Moses and more. He made one record under his own name - a record so obscure it's not listed on Discogs, nor found on the interweb? what?!
Today, for you dear listener, we would like to present Panduranga Henderson's "Ocean of Love." Om Shanti.

Recorded at the Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club in Montreal, Quebec, on May 5, 1977, Black Night Is Falling finds John Lee Hooker in fine voice and backed by a driving band composed of John Garciaon guitar, Steve Jones on bass, and Larry "Wild Man" Martin on drums, with the end result being an excellent example of live Hooker at his best. Highlights include impressive romps through two of Hooker's signature tunes, "Boom Boom," which simply blazes with raw energy here, and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," which is delivered as a wonderfully paced barroom cautionary tale. This is what the live Hooker sounded like with a sympathetic band behind him, a band that luckily wasn't afraid to push him a little.

In the late 90's, Waylon Jennings was working on a batch of new material for a potential new album to be recorded. Unfortunately, that Jennings passed away before that album could be realized. While going through some of his fathers things, Shooter Jennings ran across a cassette tape labeled "New Stuff". What was on that tape was a collection of new songs performed by just Waylon and his guitar. Shooter restored the tape and the result was an earnest collection of songs Waylon felt passionate and proud of. Black Country Rock proudly presents "New Stuff" on beautiful limited colored 12" vinyl, a collection of songs that are a must-have for any die-hard Waylon fan.

MORE INFO

2-LP gatefold on swirled red/white and blue/white vinyl, with two bonus songs and an exclusive Black Friday RSD 7" of "Lady Don't Tek No" (produced by DJ Shadow) 20 years after its initial release, the Bay Area uber-classic Latyrx: The Album - lyricists Lyrics Born and Lateef The Truthspeaker, with production from DJ Shadow, Chief Xcel and Lyrics Born - still stands as a seminal recording. It has gone on to resonate with successive generations of listeners, and influence countless artists. Recorded over a two-year period, it was the first full-length release from the legendary Solesides collective, and encapsulates a highly creative and influential time in hip-hop, frequently dubbed The Golden Age. Over the course of the original release's 42 minutes, not only can you hear Lyrics Born and Lateef literally growing into themselves as artists, but you can also hear the germination of the Solesides sound, first given birth at California's UC Davis in the early '90s, driven by brothers-in- beats-and rhymes Blackalicious and DJ Shadow. Partially by design, and partially out of necessity, Latyrx-and the Solesides crew as a whole-became trailblazers. Lyrics Born remembers (in this set's lengthy liner notes), "We really wanted to explore. New styles, new subject matter, new textures, new vocabulary. It came down to even wanting to do words in the English language that you had never heard in a rap song before. It was all about pushing." And push they did, with game-changing lyrical exercises like "Say That," "Balcony Beach," "The Wreckoning" and "The Muzappers Mix." Beyond cuts that back-in- the-day fans know from the original sequence, the two bonus tracks included in this edition are: "Looking Over A City" [produced by El-P], originally released on the Quannum compilation Spectrum. And "The Last Trumpet," which closes this new deluxe edition. Originally appearing on the 2003 Lyrics Born solo album Later That Day, it's one of Latyrx's most-realized collaborations, and one of their most overtly-politically-themed songs. This deluxe, 2-LP issue of Latyrx: The Album is a must for longtime fans and newly-initiated listeners alike, with in-depth liner notes by veteran Bay Area journalist Eric Arnold (including input from Lyrics Born and Lateef The Truthspeaker) and packaged in a gatefold format. And for Black Friday Record Store Day only, 1,000 lucky buyers will have the addition of a first-time-ever 7-Inch of the group's 1997 single "Lady Don't Tek No," produced by DJ Shadow.

MORE INFO

Texas funk music is amongst the highest regarded styles in the genre, a unique mixture of jazz, blues, R&B and James Brown's syncopation that evolved in metropolises like Houston (Kashmere Stage Band), San Antonio (Mickey and the Soul Generation), Austin (James Polk and the Brothers) and Dallas. Dallas birthed a variety of independent labels, Soultex and Doin Our Thing amongst them. But no one in Dallas, Texas or America, created a run of 7" singles like Timothy McNealy did on his Shawn imprint. When it comes to heavy, funk music, in Dallas - in Texas - Timothy McNealy is king. This means that when it comes to funk music, in general, McNealy is hallowed. Yet McNealy's music has never been collected as an album, nor reappraised in its totality. A series of 7" single reissues have come out in the past 15 years, including his masterpiece "Sagittarius Black," a psychedelic funk instrumental that has been a cornerstone in every fan's rediscovery of the genre for the past 20 years. But this is the first time that his music is presented in its totality, giving the enlightened fan an opportunity to hear the breadth and depth of his Funky Movement.

1. "What's Going On?" 2. "So Glad You’re Mine" 3. "Sagittarius Black" 4. "Funky Movement Pt. 1" 5. "Easy, Easy, Easy" 6. "Will You Be There?" 7. "Do It" 8. "KC Stomp" 9. "Funky Movement Pt. 2" 10. "What Would You Do?" +Bonus Tracks

in 1973's Yesterday's Wine LP, Willie Nelson crafted one of the most artistically acclaimed albums in his huge catalog of recorded music. The LP is an insightful look into the the wrtiing and musicianship of this legendary artist at a time when he and friends like Waylon Jennings were considered too hip and outlaw for the confines of Nashville radio acceptance. It contains songs like the autobiographical "Me & Paul", the stellar title track and an incredible trove of balladry including "December Day," "It's Not For Me To Understand," and the gospel hits "In God's Eyes" and "Family Bible." Yesterday's Wine has been long out of print on vinyl and is coming to record stores as part of the Friday Music 180g Audiophile Vinyl Series on burgundy vinyl, in a gatefold sleeve and with a poster depicting the cover art included.

MORE INFO

Few country artists have had a bigger influence on the musical landscape than Wille Nelson. Born in 1933 in Abbott, TX, Ol' Willie is still going strong at the young age of 84! For RSD Black Friday, Modern Classics is re-releasing Spirit, Willie Nelson's forty-ninth studio album, originally released in 1996. The album differs from Nelson's other work because his band used fewer instruments on the recording (two guitars, piano, fiddle) and it has a more classical/Spanish influence. Spirit reached the US Country top 20 when it was released, and David Fricke from Rolling Stone describes it as "low-key, acoustic, stripped to the rugged fundamentals of a good song and a superior voice." Spirit is an emotional concept album illustrating the forlorn tale of a man abandoned by the great love of his life. We follow him down the path of loss as he confronts grief, gets back on his feet, and eventually finds solace in acceptance. Beloved by those familiar with Nelson's deep catalog, Spirit remains highly revered amongst critics and fans alike. Likened to Bob Dylan's Time Out Of Mind or Waylon Jennings' Right For the Time, Spirit sees Nelson maturing most gracefully. Originally released in 1996, Spirit is issued here for the first time on colored vinyl as a special Record Store Day Black Friday release. It comes newly remastered with a deluxe, gatefold, 'tip-on' uncoated jacket, this is a chance to own this unique album in its most beautifully presented form.

This red vinyl 12" with a stamped outer sleeve features the song "Disco Devil," recorded by the legendary Jamaican mad genius with the group The Full Experience, as a version of Max Romeo's "Chase the Devil." But don't jump to conclusions based on the song title - musically this is as far as you can get from Saturday Night Fever. Thick, reverb-drenched dub/roots reggae laced with Perry's dusted vocals and brilliant work behind the boards are on the menu throughout. This cut is undeniably underrated in Perry's catalog and fans will eat this up, since it has always been hard to find on 7" and 12" for many years now.

MORE INFO

When it comes to authentic, ride-or-die hip-hop, few crews have as much resonance as Mobb Deep. Featuring two double-threat MCs who also produced - Havoc and the sadly-departed Prodigy - the crew changed the hardcore rap game in 1995 with their sophomore classic The Infamous, and went on to rule the dark corners of hip-hop for the second half of the 90s and well into the 2000s. After multiple Mobb Deep platters in the '90s, Prodigy entered the 2000s as a solo artist with force, rolling over a stomping, piano-freaked backdrop laced by producer The Alchemist, with "Keep It Thoro." It has held up over time, proving itself as an anthemic classic that the streets and clubs still respect. Flaunting a smooth-but-menacing flow, Prodigy's no-nonsense lyricism on "Keep It Thoro" is prototypical modern age brag rap. Countless MCs have followed his flow, from Fabolous to Joey Bada$$. The song is short and sweet, clocking in at just over 3 minutes. There are no wasted verses, just hardcore rhymes that stay with you. But "Thoro" was the tip of the iceberg on what proved to be one of the more coveted rap full-lengths of the era. The album boasted other charting singles, including "Rock Dat Shit" and "Y.B.E." (featuring B.G.), but it can be argued that the album's real gems are buried deeper. "Genesis," "What U Rep" (featuring Noreaga) and "Three" are all sinister yet pensive. "Wanna Be Thugs" and "Delt With The Bullshit" are strong and evocative Mobb Deep cuts, featuring production and vocals by Havoc. And alongside other standouts, perhaps the deepest cut of all - especially in light of Prodigy's recent and way-too-soon passing due to complications from Sickle Cell Anemia - is "You Can Never Feel My Pain," which details the health issues and challenges this talented MC and producer had been facing his whole life. H.N.I.C. was Prodigy's first solo album, but it is perhaps his best. Among fans he will never be forgotten, for his skills, his storytelling and his no-B.S. approach to the art of MCing.

MORE INFO

Scream was formed in 1981 by vocalist Peter Stahl, his brother Franz Stahl on guitar, Skeeter Thompson on bass, and Kent Stax on drums. The next few years would see the addition of second guitarist Robert Lee Davidson and keyboard player Bobby Madden. Following three LPs on Dischord Records, Scream's No More Censorship was released by reggae label Ras Records in August 1988. A seminal album of the DC punk scene, the album was the first to feature Dave Grohl, who replaced Stax for the album and stayed with the band until they disbanded in 1990. This was the first Scream album the now world famous musician ever played on.  Since disbanding, several incarnations of Scream have reunited/resurfaced for random tours and recordings since. Members of the band went on to form countless other influential actis, including Nirvana, Wool, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Goatsnake, The Suspects and others.  Southern Lord is proud to be chosen to reissue Scream's everlasting No More Censorship album. The band found the original multi-track tapes and Southern Lord had them prepped for a remix at Grohl's 606 studio. The new mix sounds vital and intense: the entire packaging, layout and design is completely different from the original, with the inclusion of photos, lyrics, poetry and other personal writingfr from the band during that era. Pressed on red/yellow vinyl with unreleased tracks and an extensive 32 page lyric book.

Born and raised in San Antonio, where he still resides, Sunny became a star right out of high school in the late '50s and hasn't looked back in the six decades since. After releasing dozens of albums since the mid-1960s (in Spanish and English), Sunny still keeps a busy schedule and loves performing as much as he did as a teenager. His classic 45s regularly change hands for hundreds of dollars among collectors around the world, affirming his timeless appeal. As a logical next step after Big Crown's excellent (and Sunny-approved) Mr. Brown Eyed Soul compilation from September, the label has started digging into the vaults of Sunny's Key-Loc Records label to unearth some legit soul classics - which are hard to find even in San Antonio, and clean originals will cost you a pretty penny if you ever luck into one - and have not been on vinyl since the late '60s. Each has been remastered and includes original album art. First up is Smile Now, Cry Later, a 12-song platter which first hit in 1966. As with most Sunny LPs, this is a mix of soulful originals - most notably, "Smile Now, Cry Later" and "Put Me In Jail" - and provocative, wide-ranging covers. Cases in point on the tributes side of this great album include the Sam & Dave shouter "Hold On I'm Comin'"; "Forever," made famous by both the Marvelettes and Marvin Gaye, and a song that Sunny performs to this day; and the '60s Louis Prima crooner special "Just A Gigolo." The band is tight, the sound is honest, the vocals are dusky and deep, and the album is an undeniable soul and Texas music classic, ready to be discovered by a whole new generation of music fans. Dive in and be ready for a permasmile, thanks to that patented Sunny sound.

It's clear that garage music has had an international resurgence in the underground music community over the last decade. It's easy to find bands young and old paying tribute to the fuzzy, high-energy sound that originated in American garages of the 1960's. Sadly, some of the recordings that helped start it all have long been lost to obscurity in the digital age. Garage Daze compiles some of the best tracks of that time, pulled together from 45RPM singles on labels like Roulette, Atco, and Jubilee. The tracks on this limited edition compilation LP have been remastered and pressed on color vinyl at Pallas in Germany.

Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

Bernie Worrell's 1978 solo debut All The Woo In The World, could easily pass as a lost Parliament/Fundadelic release. Mr. Worrell, the man himself, who passed away in 2016, needs little introduction. He was an American keyboardist, arranger & composer best known as a founding member of Parliament/Funkadelic and for his work with Talking Heads. All The Woo In The World was Bernie Worrell's solo debut album, originally released in 1978, and featuring P-Funk alumni George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Eddie Hazel. When you hear All The Woo In The World it's no wonder David Byrne wanted Worrell to record with Talking Heads. In only seven tracks, Worrell shows how important he was to the P-Funk sound. It has everything: layered sounds, a toe-tapping midtempo beat, and incredible horns. It proved to be a classic platter of cosmic slop: funky and loose R&B. Heavily sought after by collectors, All The Woo In The World is an essential funk album by an artist who leaves a legacy as big as his career. Available for the first time on limited edition colored vinyl, All The Woo In The World is being released exclusively for RSD Black Friday 2017 and is only available in participating record stores starting on 11/24/17.
