The Allman Brothers Band was one of Georgia's top live acts still looking for a break when they were hired to open the three-day Atlanta International Pop Festival. The band's Southern-blues style, bolstered by jams that stretched to epic lengths, won over audiences--and two days later, after legends like Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter and B.B. King took the stage, the Allmans were invited back for a second set. Recorded nearly a year before At Fillmore East established them as one of America's hottest bands, fans can now discover these landmark nights in Allman Brothers Band history with this individually numbered, limited edition box set, available on vinyl for the first time and packaged in an oversize slipcase with an eight page booklet of photos and liner notes.

MORE INFO

Anywhere II is the second, proper full length release from musical entity Anywhere, following their 2012 self-titled release. The sound began with two friends Christian Eric Beaulieu and Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta) digging into open tuning and hybrid ragas with punk energy. The project evolved into an expansive, bizarrely curated cavalcade of A-list psychedelic exhibitionists from all parts California, and a few world famous musicians playing non-famous instruments, all arranged and overseen by a mostly unknown, humble guitar playing surfer dude. The line-up of “II” finds Beaulieu and Zavala accompanied by Krist Novoselic,  Mike Watt,  Dale Crover, Jonathan Hischke, and many others. No where else in the world can you find a recording with members of Comets On Fire, Nirvana, Earthless, Melvins, Flying Luttenbachers, Sleepy Sun, Triclops!, Devendra Banhart, Lieutenant, Golden, Black Fork, Victims Family, The Mars Volta,  fIREHOSE, AND a winner of America's Next Top Model. And no one ever will again.

David Axelrod

Song Of Innocence

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Label: Now-Again Records
Quantity: 2375
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

David Axelrod delivered one of the great psychedelic albums with 1968’s Song of Innocence, based around the poetry of William Blake. It is considered by many his masterpiece. Song of Innocence is this weird hybrid that no one, not even Axelrod himself, could ever really describe. The listener is pulled in by his melodies, simplistic at first blush, but colored by odd chord progressions and turn arounds, grounded by the drummer Earl Palmer and Carol Kaye’s funk, torn between the juxtaposition of musical elements – a jazz vibraphone solo here, a fuzz guitar tear here, a nod to the baroque in Don Randi’s clavichord comps – and put at ease, always, by Axe’s arrangements, which utilize brass and strings in a way that no 1960s arranger did. It’s worth noting that there are really count-on-your-hand examples of anything that might even be compared to Song of Innocence. Perhaps Arthur Verocai’s self-titled and only artist album, issued on the Brasilian Continental label in 1972, or the collaborations between Serge Gainsbourg and Jean Claude Vannier, which found their epitome in 1971’s Histoire de Melody Nelson. But even these albums, superb, in any thinking music fan’s canon of the best from this era, perhaps in their lives - and perhaps in line with Song of Innocence - are one-offs. Axelrod’s Song of Innocence set in path a series of artist albums on Capitol and other labels and influenced the world countless times over, from The Verve to DJ Shadow to Madlib to J.Dilla.
Remastered from the original tapes in a new transfer, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.

Baby Huey

The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Label: Run Out Groove
Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

James Thomas Ramey, better known by his stage name Baby Huey (taken from the Paramount Pictures animated giant cartoon duckling) was born in Richmond, Indiana and moved to Chicago in the early '60s to front his band The Babysitters with co-founders Melvin Deacon Jones on trumpet and Johnny Ross on guitar. By the time they recorded The Living Legend, only Huey and Jones remained (Deacon Jones would go on to play with Freddie King and John Lee Hooker). Because of a glandular disorder, Huey weighed close to 400 pounds at times, contributing to his "larger than life" stage presence, but also to a host of health issues. During the later '60s, The Babysitters followed Sly and the Family Stone's lead and became a psychedelic soul act, with Huey adding rhymes to their stage act. Curtis Mayfield, tipped off by Donny Hathaway, came to check them out and they were in the midst of recording The Living Legend for his label when Huey died in a hotel room, just a few weeks after Jimi Hendrix. It became a posthumous release. Fast forward a few years to Kool Herc (one of the original hip-hop DJs, who began to spin two copies of "Listen To Me" at the same time---starting the Baby Huey cult, and leading to "Hard Times" being sampled by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest and Ice Cube. The lacquers for this RSD 2018 release were cut directly from the analog tapes by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Record Industry. It comes in a tip-on Stoughton jacket and includes a bonus LP of unreleased instrumentals making their vinyl debut.

SIDE A: "Listen To Me", "Mama Get Yourself Together", "A Change Is Going To Come" SIDE B: "Mighty, Mighty", "Hard Times", "California Dreaming", "Running" "One Dragon, Two Dragon" SIDE C: "Little Linda Turn On"*, "Running"*, "Hard Times"*, "You Make Me So Very Happy"* SIDE D: "Mama Get Yourself Together"*, "Turn On To Me"*, "Mighty, Mighty"*, "Aquarius"*  *Unreleased Instrumental

MORE INFO

The Beau Brummels, taking their name from George Bryan "Beau" Brummell, who was a model dandy in British society in the 1800s, originally formed in San Francisco in 1964. The band's debut single, "Laugh Laugh" helped break them into the mainstream and would later be cited as helping to establish the San Francisco Sound. By 1968, Sal Valentine (lead vocals) and guitarist Ron Elliottt were a duo when they stepped into Owen Bradley's studio in Mt. Juliet, TN, about a half hour outside Nashville. With legendary producer Lenny Waronker in tow and backed by some of Nashville's finest session musicians, they conjured up an intimate and heartbreaking final stop on their five year journey from British-folk rockers to alternative country obscurity. What they created was like nothing else and has stood the test of time. This deluxe expanded edition for Record Store Day pulls together the homespun, inviting and timeless music created in Bradley's Barn and adds a bonus LP of demo recordings that are finally making their debut on vinyl.

SIDE A: "Turn Around", "An Added Attraction", "Deep Water", "Long Walking Down To Misery", "Little Bird", "Cherokee Girl"  SIDE B: "I'm A Sleeper", "The Loneliest Man In Town", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down", "Jessica", "Bless You California" SIDE C: "Lift Me (Alternate Take)", "I Love You Mama (Alternate Take)", "Just A Little Bit of Lovin' (Demo)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Another", "High There", "Black Crow (Stereo Demo)", "Deep Water (Alternate Version)" SIDE D: "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (Alternate Mix)", "Jessica (Alternate Take)", "Bittersweet", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "Long Black Veil" "Confessions (Demo)"

The greatest hits of the late, great, Chuck Berry! Truly a greatest hits record that stands on its own as a definitive LP in the discography of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer. We’ve given this extraordinary collection a major facelift with stunning new art and pressed it onto gold vinyl. The legacy of Chuck Berry is nearly beyond description-–Berry means originality, being the first true rock and rolling, gyrating guitar god, and the earliest rock and roll lyricist whose words are worthy of a poet’s pedigree. And Berry means success, too...all of the dozen recordings on this long play record were hit recordings, from the beginning (“Maybelline,” in the summer of ‘55) to the most recent waxing (the fun and funky “Nadine"), both supercharged tales featuring cars and girls, subjects close to the singer’s heart. Here are a dozen of his monumental achievements: guitar-driven, rocking, rolling music with his hip, happening wit and genius wordsmithing–Chuck Berry’s Greatest Hits!

"Yeah, Yeah", by the mysterious Memphis underground group Blackrock, was originally recorded in 1969 and released as a 45 RPM 7" single. It's become a cult classic and been sampled by artists such as The Black Keys, Royce Da 5'9, The Roots, and Snow. (It's believed that Jay-Z also recorded a track featuring the sample which has never been released.)  Formed by two session musicians from Stax Records (Archie Turner, Cornell McFadden)  and two session musicians from Hi Records (Willie Pettis, Kurt Dudley), Blackrock appeared for a short time on the Memphis music scene, and it's believed that they first performed at the 1970 Memphis Country Blues Festival at what was then the Overton Park Shell, sharing the line-up with Sid Selvidge, Electric Blues Watermelon, Furry Lewis and Bukka White, among others. They recorded two incredible sides of a 45 single for the Select-O-Hits label in North Memphis. "Yeah, Yeah" was an amazing slab of funk with a rock-hard foundation of drumming provided by McFadden. The flip side "Bad Cloud Overhead" was more dark and foreboding, with lyrics about the drug culture and "gettin busted." Both singles were edited out of a longer continuous performance that had been recorded. Both appear on this RSD 2018 release, along with an extended version of "Yeah Yeah" and an unreleased track.

MORE INFO

The Animals. What can one say about the Animals? Out of sight? That’s old. That they fly? They’ve been flying since they began. That they’re great. This record proves it. Well, if one were looking for things to say, one could say that everything is better about this album, especially the recording of vocals and drums. But, of course, the only real question is, how is Eric? Eric is, of course, in orbit (he’s also the lead vocalist, for those of you who aren’t Animals fans). The whole of side one is an uninterrupted symphony of R&B. Just listen to the two versions of the absurdly great “C. C. Rider”. On the other hand (also on the other side, side two) is most of their psychedelic material. Compared to the previous Animals albums, this just seems to pack a little more punch than any of the others with the possible exception of Animal Tracks. Jenkins’s drumming really makes a difference in the overall sound. The group seems freer now, especially on the uptempo material (check “Shake, Rattle And Roll”). And Burdon’s vocals seem to be constantly improving, which is a crucial point. I can think of nothing he has done previously to equal “Tobacco Road” or “When I Was Young.” In any event, the fact is that this album rocks. And when the Animals rock, no one can touch them. My one hope is that there is enough material in the can to put out another album as good as this one. Limited to 2000 copies worldwide.

In the early 2000s, Cam and his Diplomats were ruling New York, and Purple Haze undeniably took them to higher heights. Among numerous producers in his stable, relative newcomer Kanye West brings the heat twice here, with the single “Down & Out” (with Kanye pulling double duty, also rocking the mic) and “Dip-Set Forever.” Elsewhere, Cam’s Diplomats crew swarm to support, on “Hey Lady” (with
Freekey Zekey) and the more minimal, N.W.A. tribute “The Dope Man,” with Jim Jones. “Bubble Music” is a Cam standalone, with some reggae-tinged chops that change the pace a bit. Purple Haze was another Diplomats volley that kept their flame burning hot, ruling the streets of NYC and far beyond. Presented here as a 2-LP on appropriate purple vinyl, don’t miss out on your chance to revisit and rock to one of the era’s most memorable platters.

John Carter Cash has been producing music for the past 25 years, but has written his own music his whole life. Working out of The Cash Cabin Studio, John Carter’s creative center, "We Must Believe In Magic" is a collection of 17 songs recorded over the course of the last ten years. On this album, there comes together an assort-ed and wondrous host of musical guests, from some of the most recorded Nashville session players ever, to visionary recording artists from the bluegrass, rock, and country music world.  For the most part, the music is original, some co-written with a number of master songwriters, including Bill Miller, Shawn Camp, and Wesley Orbison. Much of the production is sparse and simple, focusing on the song and the individual instrumentalist. But John Carter certainly holds no limit or containment around his creative energy, and this double-album is certainly diverse and presents an unparalleled epic journey.

Like its predecessor, Chrome, it was produced by Gil Norton, and the influences of heavy metal and hard rock are prevalent on this album; however, the band does retain some elements of the shoegazing style that dominated their previous albums, particularly on the songs "Heal" and "Eat My Dust You Insensitive Fuck".

'First released on by James Iha and D'arcy Wretsky's Smashing Pumpkins offshoot label Scratchie Records in 1996, the Chainsaw Kittens' self-titled album was never officially released on vinyl. For the album, the Oklahoma four-piece enlisted the help of The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd along with the help of a number of violinists and orchestra members, successfully making the album their most commercially successful. The Chainsaw Kittens toured with the album for over three years, selling out stadiums and theaters with bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, who often cite the Kittens as an early influence, along with Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Of the album, AllMusic says "the overall feeling of the album is more melancholy and thoughtful than any previous one, capturing the sense of sadness and desperation...". For this first ever official release of the album on vinyl, a wealth of archival material has been drudged up, including never before seen live photos and art which will be included in an inner booklet. The album cover will be a full-color gatefold with newly created artwork by award winning Flaming Lips designer George Salisbury. Vinyl will be pressed at Archer Record Pressing in Detroit, MI with 1000 LPs pressed on red vinyl and 1000 LPs pressed on black vinyl. 100 randomly inserted copies will contain an original press photo, newly autographed by the band.

While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Angeles.  Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?.  Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks.  It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor.  Long out-of-print, Can I Borrow A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last.  This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”.

Quantity: 1000
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus

MORE INFO

There are West Coast classics, and then there is Music To Driveby, the third LP from the group that birthed MC Eiht: Compton’s Most Wanted. Although the group started in the late ‘80s with multiple MCs (including Tha Chill and Boom Bam), by 1992 Eight was pulling the group’s vocal weight – supported by DJ Mike T on turntables and production – and even producing and co-producing tracks. Music To Driveby might lack beats-per-minute variety, but to fans that’s not a bad thing. Across the board, this is mid-tempo, super deep, funky hip-hop, made for cars creeping along boulevards across the West and South, and it’s about as good as it gets for such purposes. Just about filler-free, the album struts intensely and with purpose, as Eiht throws tales of Cali street life at fans for an hour straight, almost without a break. This solo marathon is given a respite only once, with Scarface’s guest spot on “N 2 Deep,” an excellent hood roller supported by a soulful guitar lick sampled from Lyn Collins’ “Do Your Thing.” Elsewhere, Eiht rolls alone and intensely, on cuts like the classic smash single “Hood Took Me Under”; the album’s second single and Tim Dog attack “Who’s Fu**ing Who?”; the hometown big-up “Compton 4 Life”; and hustle tales like “Jack Mode” and “I Gots To Get Over.” After this album, Eiht released more classics under his own name, and with similar fan worship. It was the continuation of a legendary career and Music To Driveby still ranks high on anyone’s “West Coast Legends” playlist.  THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a strictly limited edition Picture Disc LP of Curved Air's classic 1970 debut album "Air Conditioning". Originally issued on the Warner Bros. label in November 1970, "Air Conditioning" showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album "A Rainbow in Curved Air" by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today', 'Propositions', 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations', "Air Conditioning" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands. Issued as THE first rock picture disc LP on its original release, this new picture disc edition has been cut at Abbey Road Studios and is a fitting tribute to a classic album by a legendary band.

Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus

MORE INFO

Billy Davis is a true rock 'n' roll troubadour. Having performed with Hank Ballard & The Midnighters and Little Richard, Davis is no stranger to rock 'n' roll. You'll hear his guitar playing on hits like 'Finger Popping Time', 'Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go'.and Jackie Wilson's 'Higher And Higher'. Davis taught Jimi Hendrix how to play the guitar (really), and he was personally invited by Elvis Presley to perform with him at Graceland. He was a close personal friend to Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, and he rubbed shoulders with a member of the Manson family who secretly toured with Ballard in the 1980s under a different name. He's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as he should be. This is Billy Davis' inaugural release with Jett Plastic, and we are insanely proud to have worked with engineer Zach Shipps on this completely solo effort, pressed on chestnut brown vinyl with a download card and booklet enclosed.

Ruff Draft: Dilla's Mix

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Label: Pay Jay
Quantity: 4750
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

The producer’s own mixes – recently rediscovered - of his seminal EP, expanded with bonus tracks into a 2LP set, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.
When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technically and creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building while modestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his own label, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accounts for why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother, Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”

Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the mother of his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 working on an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected and whose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone not from his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.

The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that he would take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes of the songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album and restores his vision for the project. “Straight from the mothafuckin’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound he was going for on the EP’s intro. It is buttressed by unreleased tracks and is presented in two versions: LP one is the EP as it was originally released; LP 2 is the alternate version that Dilla had for the project. Author Ronnie Reese expands upon his original liner notes to further tell Dilla’s story, in a booklet complete with never before published photographs from the Ruff Draft photo session.

MORE INFO

​The California EP pays homage to Wes’ first full-length release, Florida, where he spent much of his youth. The sonics on California share a similar tone: slow, vibey, & melancholic, a bit of a departure from the sound he has been known for in recent years. The vibe of the EP is somewhat dark, contrary to the warm and carefree lifestyle one would expect of someone living in California. This may very well be a reflection of the bleak underside of fame & excess in Hollywood​.​ The EP is much more than just a handful of tracks​; it's an introspective body of work.  Diplo has recruited industry heavyweights and newcomers alike, including Santigold, Dram, Lil’ Yachty, MØ, Goldlink and more, as well as LA-based artist, February James, who was commissioned to create inspired portraits of each of the artists that appear on the EP, housed in the gatefold jacket.

The Tomb of the Cybermen launched the 1967/8 series of Doctor Who. Ascribed a legendary status by the fans, the serial was believed lost for many years until a full print of the series was recovered from Hong Kong in 1992. The action of The Tomb of the Cybermen follows directly on from that of the preceding serial The Evil of the Daleks, with the Doctor and Jamie welcoming the newly orphaned Victoria aboard the TARDIS. Commissioned as Doctor Who and the Cybermen Planet, this was the third encounter between the Doctor and his half-human, half-machine foes. It was co-written by Kit Pedler, who devised the Cybermen in The Tenth Planet, and Gerry Davis, the story editor who had helped develop them. Patrick Troughton faces the dreaded Cybermen in the digitally remastered soundtrack of the classic BBC TV story, with linking narration by Frazer Hines. 2 hours of audio over 2LP presented in a gatefold sleeve. Features brand new artwork + pressed on coloured 180g heavyweight vinyl. Also includes bespoke sleeve notes and never before seen behind the scenes photography from the filming

MORE INFO

Factory Benelux presents an expanded vinyl edition of Another Setting, the third studio album by cult Manchester ensemble The Durutti Column, issued in a limited edition of 800 copies worldwide for Record Store Day on 21 April 2018. Another Setting was recorded in 1983 at Strawberry Studio, Stockport with production by Chris Nagle, a favourite engineer of Martin Hannett. The 11 track album contains several acknowledged Durutti classics, notably haunting instrumental Prayer (burnished with cor anglais by Maunagh Fleming) and The Beggar, probably the closest Vini Reilly has edged to rock music. Elsewhere, Smile in the Crowd would be covered by Depeche Mode mainman Martin Gore on his 1989 solo project Counterfeit.
This new vinyl remaster also includes non-album single I Get Along Without You Very Well, a bittersweet Hoagy Carmichael cover sung by Lindsay Reade, the former wife of Factory foreman Tony Wilson. 
The second disc is a previously unreleased live show taped at the Pandora’s Box Festival in Rotterdam on 4 September 1983, featuring eight tracks performed by Vini Reilly and Bruce Mitchell. This second disc is pressed on clear vinyl.
The 2018 edition of Another Setting is packaged in a gatefold sleeve printed on white reverse board, restoring the original cover artwork by Mark Farrow with cover paintings by Jackie Williams.

2-track double A side 12". "The unexpected, fully welcome, and deliriously successful pairing of professional ex-glam sound genius Brian Eno and his new sidekick, My Bloody Valentine noise sculptor Kevin Shields. Begging to be listened to on noise-canceling headphones or very, very loud speakers, the duo blast off with a drum track that is instantly, almost comically subsumed into a nine-minute sound-cleanse of bells, drones, and a soaring rocket flare that may be a guitar. Ambient but hardly static, its tones and textures return throughout, as if tracing long and inaudibly developing melodies. Not immediately identifiable as either Eno or Shields' work, a rich, enveloping piece of music" - Pitchfork.

MORE INFO

FIDLAR's debut LP plunges the listener into the band's beer-soaked, late-night, raucous garage party. Named for a skate slogan and boasting a distinct punk pedigree (two members are sons of T.S.O.L.’s Greg Kuehn), the SoCal group drives forward with the kind of nihilism that has good times in mind and little else. This album touches blues riffs and surf-rock reverb with the same dirty paws, immediately resonating with anyone who’s ever found themselves on the beach alone picking up empties after the party’s over. In celebration of Mom+Pop's 10 year anniversary we will be re-issuing key catalogue pieces on picture disc based on the album artwork. These pressings will include a 10 year commemorative Mom+Pop poster as well as collectible temporary tattoos.

Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

One of America's greatest, most influential, and legendary cult bands, who came out of the San Francisco area in 1965. They were part of the flower-power scene but their music, 3-minute power-pop blasts, wasn't. Despite playing the wrong kind of music at the wrong time, and not looking the part by sporting British Invasion mop-top haircuts, they played great greasy, bluesy rock'n'roll music which has sustained a career for three decades. Their 1968 self-produced 'Supersnazz' was snapped up by Epic, then the classic albums 'Flamingo' ('70), and 'Teenage Head' ('71) appeared on Kama Sutra.
In 1973, after a UK single on UA, they issued the launch single 'Grease' for SKYDOG RECORDS, run by Parisian Marc Zermati from his Open Market record shop. Followed up by 'More Grease' in '74 and a third Skydog single in '77, the punk era then brought a new appreciative audience and a hit on Sire, the classic 'Shake Some Action'. Later, a further final Skydog project came in 1981, when they recorded at Phil Spector's Gold Star Studios, remaking 'River Deep Mountain High' in the same room as Ike & Tina's original.
This singles collection, mostly taken from their early 70's heyday, is packaged with original 'Grease' artwork by comix artist Vidal. The double-LP comes in a gatefold sleeve, with notes by Skydog's Marc Zermati. It also features previously unseen 1970's colour photos discovered in the Skydog archives.
The album has been remastered, and with some tracks produced by Dave Edmunds at Rockpile Studios and others recorded at Spector's Gold Star Studios, 'Grease' is a mix of Groovie originals and classic pop covers and a unique spotlight into this period in their lengthy career.

River Deep Mountain High; So Much In Love; And Your Bird Can Sing; She Don’t Care About Time; Do I Love You; Sweet Little Rock’n’Roller; Slow Death; Let Me Rock; Dog Meat; Jumping Jack Flash; Blues For Phylis; Can’t Explain; Little Queenie; Feel A Whole Lot Better; Paint It Black; Shake Some Action. 16 tracks

It’s an incredible, celestial, but somehow lonely feeling.” --Florence Welch

MORE INFO

Florian Fricke (1944 – 2001) was a German music pioneer who started his career in electronic music using the Moog synthesizer within the famous Krautrock group ‘Popol Vuh’. Fricke studied piano, composition and directing at the conservatories in Freiburg and Munich where he also dedicated himself to new kinds of music like ‘free jazz’. In 1967 he met German film director Werner Herzog and the two formed a life long friendship (Fricke was later responsible for the soundtracks of several of Herzog’s movies). His recordings left an indelible mark on German electronic music. However, he later significantly gave his Moog to fellow German musician Klaus Schulze and largely renounced electronic music in favor of often-acoustic tones. Besides working on his own music, Fricke collaborated with many German musicians & bands like Tangerine Dream & Amon Düül. Over the course of his career Florian put out countless Popol Vuh albums and two solo albums, the first one being ‘Die Erde und ich sind Eins’ (1983) and in 1991 he recorded an intimate album of Mozart compositions. Fricke plays a beautiful selection of his favourite Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Allegro’s & Adagio’s on ‘Spielt Mozart’ (plays Mozart). A very personal album for Florian, it was released as a tribute for the 200th anniversary of Mozart’s death. Trying to achieve a deep inner-peace, Fricke looses himself completely in the vibrations and wonderful melodies. The result here is a honest interpretation without pretence or hidden motives, a tribute from one composer to another, almost like a dialogue between the two. Now, for the FIRST TIME ON VINYL (these recordings only received a limited CD release in the early nineties) OWS records proudly presents a deluxe double vinyl edition exclusively for Record Store Day 2018. Strictly limited to 1000 copies, available in participating stores on 4/21.

MORE INFO

Double Date is an independent British horror film that was released to great applause in 2017. The film was written by and starred Danny Morgan and was the debut movie directed by Benjamin Barfoot.  Ben approached Goat in 2016 asking them if they would be interested in appearing in the film he was making as he had a club scene where he wanted to feature a band playing live. And when he and Danny were coming up with the idea for the movie they had Goat’s ‘World Music’ album on repeat and it was the band's infectious tribal grooves that he wanted in the scene.  During filming of  Goat’s scene Ben and the band bonded and he invited Goat to score the whole film, so their unique DNA would be running throughout the whole picture. The band liked the idea and decided to take the challenge on. And we at Rocket are very excited to be able to release the complete score Goat created for the film on a special ltd edition ‘pool of blood’ coloured vinyl 10” LP especially for Record Store Day 2018. The album contains all the original music Goat created to soundtrack the film plus the music they made for the trailer. The score also contains a different version of Goat’s live anthem ‘Run To Your Mama’ that was especially created for the film.

Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

“The Friends of Eddie Coyle” may not be Dave Grusin's best known or most celebrated score but, like both book and film, it's a quiet classic." - David Toop    Dave Grusin's cult funky soundtrack for Peter Yates' 1973 superb crime movie, 'The Friends of Eddie Coyle,' was never released at the time. It is finally out 45 years after for RSD 2018 on Wewantsounds, remastered from the original tapes with one bonus alternate take and featuring a new essay by leading UK writer and musician David Toop. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, the release also features a stunning cover by highly sought-after Alternative Movie Poster illustrator Oliver Barrett. The music composed here by Dave Grusin for this superb film is both funky and jazzy and on a par with Quincy Jones and Lalo Schifrin's best soundtracks of the early 70s. Peter Yates who had directed 'Bullitt' knew who to go for when it came to outstanding musicians and Grusin was certainly one of the best young composers in Hollywood at the time. He would sign another more famous score in 1975 with "3 Days of the Condor" but The Eddie Coyle soundtrack recorded two years before is even more stunning. It plays like a hypnotic slow-burning suite and is performed by the cream of the LA jazz scene including John Guerin, Chuck Rainey, Tom Scott, Bud Shank and percussionist Emil Richards.  Amazingly the score never got released on vinyl when the film first came out in 1973 and Wewantsounds are now proud to make it available on vinyl for the first time and on CD. First Ever LP release. Remastered from the original tapes with one bonus track. Liner Notes by UK journalist and musician David Toop. Gatefold Sleeve with Artwork by famed Alternative Movie Poster designer Oliver Barrett.

MORE INFO

In 1965, a young Tim Hardin left New York City for the 'California Dreamin' of Los Angeles. Like many singer/songwriters of the time, he landed at the folk den of the famed music venue, The Troubadour. Holding court there was noted hot L.A. record producer, Jim Dickson. A staff producer for such labels as World Pacifc, Elektra and Warner Bros Records, Jim had access to the World Pacific Recording Studio. The studio where the likes of Sam Cooke, the Beach Boys, Ravi Shankar, Byrds, etc, first recorded. Jim pursued Tim to lay down some of his songs at the studio, providing a back up group with Tim on piano. Recorded on 1/2", 3 track tape, these recordings have never been heard since they were recorded and three of the four Tim Hardin songs have never been copyright or published until now. The 180 gram vinyl records were pressed at Hand Drawn Pressings in Texas on the newly designed and manufactured 'WarmTone' automated presses. Packaged in a limited edition numbered silver foil jacket.

SIDE ONE 1. I Don't Want It, Take My Love 2. It'll Never Happen Again

The Armed Man is a Mass by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins, subtitled "A Mass for Peace".

Like Benjamin Britten's War Requiem before it, it is essentially an anti-war piece and is based on the Catholic Mass, which Jenkins combines with other sources.

MORE INFO

Steve Kalinich is best known for his association with The Beach Boys, with whom he collaborated on songs such as “Little Bird” and “Be Still.” His songwriting partnership with Brian Wilson extends into his solo work, including “A Friend Like You,” the duet between Brian and Paul McCartney. His lyrics have always been imbued with a strong affinity for the transcendental, and this album is no exception, with the music ranging from dark Jim Carroll/Leonard Cohen-ish lamentations (“Things You Cannot Control”) to bluesy r&b rock (“Here With You”) and emphatic rockers (“13th Level” and the title track). Scrambled Eggs is the follow-up record to his first solo album, A WORLD OF PEACE which was produced by Brian Wilson in 1967. It features a dozen new songs by Stevie, cowritten with friends like Dylan LeBlanc, Tara Holloway, Ellis Hooks, Robert “Butch” Johnson, and producer Jon Tiven. Stevie’s poetic sensibilities shine forth, and he is joined by singing partners Black Francis, Bekka Bramlett, Ellis Hooks and the aforementioned Dylan LeBlanc and Tara Holloway. Musicians include Mickey Curry, Todd Snare and Shannon Pollard on drums and percussion, Sally Tiven on bass, Robert “Butch” Johnson and Jon Tiven on guitar and Tiven on most everything else.

MORE INFO

Reissue of the only prog LP Takoma Records ever released -- the 1974 slab by L.A.'s Laser Pace. The album's title, Granfalloon, is a term created by the late Kurt Vonnegut to describe a bunch of people who pretend to be an affinity group without having any actual affinity for each other. We're uncertain if that is suppose to refer to factions inside Laser Pace, but no matter. The album is probably the strangest pieces of wax dripped by Takoma (apart from Charlie Nothing, natch) and seems wildly out of synch with the label's presumed focus. But is a goddamn monster of odd charm, no two ways about it.

MORE INFO

Self-titled debut album of experimental band Latin Playboys. First time on vinyl. Latin Playboys is a musical group comprising David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake, active in the 1990s. The band began with a series of demo recordings made by Hidalgo on a home cassette tape 4-track machine. The demos were intended for Hidalgo's main group, Los Lobos, but producer/keyboardist Froom thought the demos were interesting enough on their own to justify a new band. With Los Lobos member Pérez, and Froom's frequent production partner Blake, Latin Playboys was formed.

The group released two albums, Latin Playboys, in 1994, and Dose, in 1999. The songs "Manifold de Amour" and "Forever Night Shade Mary," both from the 1994 self-titled debut album, are featured on the soundtrack album for the 1995 film Desperado.

Guitar legend and Television co-founder Richard Lloyd has had a profound influence on rock & roll, with people like Jeff Tweedy citing Lloyd as his “musical hero”. Yet Lloyd’s solo career has somehow largely been overlooked and under-appreciated.With the release of his critically acclaimed 2017 memoir, Everything is Combustable, there is a renewed interest in his post-Television work. Perhaps the most obscure of his solo releases is Lodestones, an album that was released in 2010 only as a digital download. That album is finally getting its due with a vinyl pressing for Record Store Day 2018.

MORE INFO

Original soundtrack featuring Daptone alumni, Menahan Street Band and Budos Band. "Postales is a cross-cultural love story shot in the streets of Cusco, Peru in which a postcard-selling street kid encounters an American Tourist girl, and follows her back to her hotel, setting off a chain of events that culminates with a stolen wallet, young love, and a family losing its home." The soundtrack provided by Brooklyn Afro Latin Funk outfits Menahan and Budos Band paints just as nice a picture as the film with sometimes gritty, slightly menacing production. The signature horn section drives the tracks and is easily one of the best Deep Latin Soul records from the last decade. Colemine Records, being known for their incredible 45 catalog of modern Afro Beat and Funk, released Postales as their first full length. If you are a fan of Truth & Soul and Daptone, this is for you. Recommended.

MORE INFO

A crucial founding member of the Northern Cali-birthed Solesides / Quannum collective – which included DJ Shadow and Blackalicious, among others – and one half of the groundbreaking Latyrx duo (with Lateef The Truthspeaker), Lyrics Born opened a lot of ears and minds with his 2003 solo debut, Later That Day….
On this very open-minded and chiefly self-produced long player, Lyrics Born and his crew (including Joyo Velarde, on vocals; guitarist Tommy Guerrero and Germany’s funk masters Poets of Rhythm) bring it from the funk side, boasting a warm soul stew instead of colder drum machine-based beats and chopped samples.
As shown since his earliest days, the incredibly versatile Lyrics Born mixes his flow up depending on the track, from tongue-twistingly fast to conversationally mundane, and concepts are usually at the forefront – “Cold Call” is an amusing take on telemarketers, featuring Gift of Gab; “Before And After” is about friends growing apart; “Bad Dreams” is a groovy apocalyptic shaker. The infectious “Callin’ Out” rides the party train and “Stop Complaining” timeshares between funny and serious. “Do That There” features DJ Cut Chemist with liquid cuts that work around LB’s verbal floor routine.
And even after all of the other musical fireworks, the album’s crescendo most assuredly comes on track eleven, “The Last Trumpet”: operatically dramatic and powerful, with Lyrics Born and Latyrx-mate Lateef trading verses like “the only action / we can profit from / is movement towards / the positive / progressive thought / that’s rooted up / in consciousness” at breakneck pace.
Presented for its 15th Anniversary as a 2-LP set, on colored vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with in-depth liner notes by renowned author and journalist Jeff Chang (who also helped found the Solesides movement in the early ‘90s), plus an 11”x17” poster of the amazing cover art, this is a perfect way to re-introduce this classic to a new era of fans – present and future. THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Includes brand spankin’ new liners by David Fricke of Rolling Stone, who says, "This session, at the city's famed United Sound, was soaked in local R&B aura; John Lee Hooker cut his studio debut, ‘Boogie Chillen,' there in 1948. ‘I Can Only Give You Everything’ was in that spirit and faster: a rolling-thunder feature of the MC5's live sets pulled from Van Morrison's 1966 album with Them, Them Again. ‘I Just Don't Know’ was the band's own bravado, a Bo Diddley-style gallop with a boxer's barrage of power chords."

At United Sound, the band hit the zigzag riff at light speed and stayed there, framed by searing lead guitar and explosive drumming. ‘Borderline’ was a frantic jigsaw of power-chord jolts and sheet-like harmonies detonated again, at the Grande, for the live recording of the MC5's first LP, Kick Out the Jams.”

Sir George Martin, known as “the Fifth Beatle”, is one of the greatest producers of all-time and recorded a dozen international hit singles.

George adores Bach and these pieces are an opportunity for him to indulge in his admiration for this great composer. “THE BOND SUITE” consists of different arrangements of the James Bond theme and a groovy version of Wings’ classic “Live and Let Die”. Beatles to Bond And Bach is a small glimpse of an exceptionally gifted person. “THE BEATLES SUITE” is focused on the orchestral sounds of some Beatle classics.  Limited Edition of 2.500 Individually Numbered Copies on 180g Blue Vinyl

MORE INFO

Every living creature must face the will and judgment of time. Ancient Greeks personified time in the form of the titan Kronos, father of Zeus, and ancient Egyptians celebrated Heh as an abstraction of endless years. Famously, William Shakespeare lamented humanity's immutable fate as "time's subjects" in Henry IV. Mastodon ponders the nature of time on their eighth album Emperor of Sand. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the Atlanta quartet conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass. Emperor of Sand is pressed on full color picture disc vinyl for Record Store Day 2018.

MORE INFO

Nazz's second album was to be a double album (as per Todd's wishes), called Fungo Bat. Recording began in Nov 1968 and completed in Spring (March) 1969. Due to band members indifference & management decisions, it was never released as such and Todd left the band to pursue a solo career. Todd's personal copies of the Fungo Bat Acetates were among the possessions lost in a fire at his home. The source of the recordings are from an individual in Austin, Texas, who once owned one of the only known copies of the acetates for Fungo Bat. It was three 12" acetates, with typed labels. The track listing on the acetates are just in order, 24 tracks - if this was indeed the album order, what is listed above is the logical place for album side breaks With Todd Rundgren-guitar; Robert "Stewkey" Antoni- vocals keyboards; Carson Van Osten- bass; THom Mooney0 drums.

Format: 7" Vinyl
Label: Charly
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

I'm Not Sayin' was the first original single release by Andrew Loog Oldham’s Immediate Records in August 1965. Written by Gordon Lightfoot and produced by Oldham, the song features a haunting vocal by Nico, backed by beautiful orchestration arranged and conducted by David Whittaker with The Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones on guitar with Jimmy Page. Two promotional films were shot by Peter Whitehead, one featuring Nico wandering through London’s West India Docks in 1965, an area long since changed. The song was chosen by Morrissey as a Desert Island Discs choice on BBC Radio Four. The gatefold sleeve features photography by Gered Mankowitz from the original recording session. The original b-side The Last Mile was a co-write between Oldham and the-then Immediate Records’ musical director, Jimmy Page. Even as early as 1965, the multi-talents of the future Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin maestro were apparent: as well as guitars, Page also produced, arranged and conducted the song

MORE INFO

34th anniversary edition, original release from 1984 on Durium Records. Mannequin Records is proud to present a trilogy of reissues from the avantgarde Italian-born producer Doris Norton, "Norton Computer For Peace" (1983), "Personal Computer" (1984), "Artificial Intellingence" (1985). Apple's first music "endorsement" and Roland affiliate, Doris Norton is one of the most important women pioneer in the use of synths and in the early electro / computer music. Norton is the wife of Antonio Bartoccetti, progressive rock guitarist, and mother of the musician and techno producer Rexanthony.  As a teenager, she was drawn to medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music, not to mention quantum physics, differential equations, organic chemistry, the experimentalism of John Cage and animated movie soundtracks. Her love for modules and circuits found expression through the waves of an old harmonium, the frequencies of a Minimoog, a Roland System 100M, a Roland System 700 and the ARP 2500/2600. In 1980, Norton began her solo career by recording at Fontana Studio 7, the Milan studio of the composer and musician Tito Fontana, resulting in the electronic opera "Under Ground".  Norton became more prolific, continuing her adventures in experimental electronics and computer music with Parapsycho (1981), Raptus (1981), Nortoncomputerforpeace (1983), PC (1984) – whose album cover prominently features Apple’s colored logo – and Artificial Intelligence (1985). While the beat-oriented style of Norton’s music aligns her with such global fellow-travelers as Yellow Magic Orchestra and Kraftwerk, her championing of the personal computer as a tool for self-sufficient musical creativity also connects her to more artsy musicians such as Pietro Grossi, Laurie Spiegel, and the League of Automatic Music Composers. Norton’s predilection for the bright, glossy timbres of early digital instruments also recalls Hubert Bognermayr and Harald Zuschrader’s bizarre 1982 one-off Erdenklang. Later, her talent and expertise attracted the attention of IBM, who in 1986 named her as an official consultant. Already the reigning queen of the Italian electronic scene, she recorded two CDs for IBM: Automatic Feeling and The Double Side Of The Science. Influenced by her son, the musician and producer Rexanthony, Norton brought her fascination with the early days of techno into the 1990s, when she released three volumes of Techno Shock on Italian trance/hardcore label Sound Of The Bomb. While her music remains largely out of print and inaccessible, Norton’s early records have recently begun to receive the inevitable rediscovery treatment."In the late sixties I had already conceived computers as “personal.” I have always trusted in the benefits of  solitude; [being] alone means freedom… What’s better than a “personal” computer for materializing ideas, by oneself" (Doris Norton)

MORE INFO

The Pagans, one of America's first and most influential punk bands, was formed in 1977. Along with contemporaries like The Dead Boys and Pere Ubu, The Pagans and lead singer Mike Hudson literally wrote the book on punk rock. Releasing the now classic 'Street Where Nobody Lives' 7" on Drome Records in 1978, The Pagans went on to enjoy a successful thirty-plus year run. Recorded in 2016, this 7" marks the final record by The Pagans. Mike Hudson, the groups lead singer, passed away in late 2017. All artwork and audio was approved by Hudson prior to his passing, and this pink vinyl 7" package should serve as a fitting send off to a man and a band who had a great deal to do with punk rock history.

“The dazzling symphonic album he always threatened to produce” UNCUT 5/5
“A soulful symphonic masterpiece” ROLLING STONE

Originally released in Japan only on CD in 2002, Plush's Fed lives up to the cult-like adulation it has garnered ever since. A stunning symphony of Bacharach-inspired pop, Toussaint-swing andMelody Nelson-era-Gainsbourg, it’s an album bound together by Liam Hayes' maverick genius; an uncompromising Brian Wilson-esque quest for sonic perfection. Positively indulgent in every way, this sumptuous record has long deserved to be treated to a deluxe vinyl edition. Lovingly overseen by Hayes and recent collaborator Pat Sansone (Wilco/The Autumn Defense), it will finally be available on the format it should’ve always been, this Record Store Day 2018. Remastered and presented as a double LP - cut specially at 45rpm – it comes housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with expanded artwork throughout.
 
Its expansive, singular vision infamously took years to realise, involving Earth Wind & Fire’s horn arranger (the legendary Tom Tom MMLXXXIV) amongst other elite personnel. Recorded with five different engineers (including Steve Albini and John McEntire), Hayes meticulously extracted every ounce of pop from each note. A long list of renowned studio ringers (including soul drummer Morris Jennings) and Chicago regulars (McEntire, Rizzo, Parker) among many others provide playing of demonstrably professional precision. As such, Hayes' complex, meandering melodies are rendered far more coherent and satisfying than they otherwise might have appeared, bringing his epic, anguished pop to a rarely seen level of perfection and depth. This unstinting dedication to the overarching vision was rewarded handsomely - artistically, at least.
 
However, as might have been expected, his deluxe approach resulted in a bill too steep for any American or European label to ultimately support. It has since seemed unlikely that it would see the light of day on either side of the Atlantic. Yet we were determined not to allow Hayes' lifetime achievement to go unnoticed or let music fans across the world miss out on one of the finest albums of this century.

A wide-eyed opus of stunning intensity, Fed oozes Hayes’ impeccable influences without ever becoming overwhelmed by them. Incredibly, it touches upon Blaxploitation soul, Boz Scaggs-soft-rock, hints of jazz and blues, timeless baroque and skewed pop. In one long minute, the stabbing, soulful "So Blind" moves through five different melodic segments; horns shift easily from haunting backdrop to explosive forefront, smoothly giving way to strings as Hayes' voice casts its bewitching spell. The ambitious soul of “Having It All” has been described as the diffident cousin of Marvin Gaye’s “Save The Children” whilst the breezy "Greyhound Bus Station" is pure 70s AM Gold, evoking the easy warmth of Jimmy Webb’s beloved Land’s End period. The sublime resignation of "No Education", a beautifully slow number that begins, "Never read a book in my life/ But I feel just fine" is post-rock ballad heaven. Arriving towards the end, the title track arrives as a majestic suite; moving from a horn-and-guitar-led instrumental via shifting melodies to Hayes’ compelling vocal bursts.  
 
An album of such brilliance, Fed can comfortably sit alongside such staggering statement pieces as David Bowie's Young Americans, Randy Newman's 12 Songs or Harry Nilsson's Nilsson Schmilsson. Indeed, for all the sprawling elements that went in - lengthy guitar builds, exploding horn sections, solemn strings, female backup chorus - it is a deeply personal and original record. Employing a distinct “more is more” aesthetic, he demonstrates remarkable restraint in producing an album of such intimacy. "My creation has drowned me," he memorably sings on languid opener "Whose Blues", yet he navigates the shifting styles and ideas with enviable ease.

MORE INFO

Born as Florian Fricke’s brainchild, Popol Vuh needs little introduction, the band stayed active between the late 1960s & late 1990s (until Florian’s passing in 2001). Regarded as pioneers in avant-garde German electronic music, their early works practically laid down the foundations for ‘Kosmische Muzik’ (Space Music) with the then new sounds of the Moog synthesizer joined with ethnic percussions. Later the group evolved to include all kinds of instruments (both electric and acoustic alike) shrouding their music in a spiritual & introspective mystical aura. Popol Vuh influenced many other European bands with their uniquely soft but elaborate instrumentation, which took inspiration from the music of Tibet, Africa and pre-Columbian America. With music sometimes described as "ethereal", they created soundscapes through psychedelic walls of sound, and are regarded as precursors of contemporary ‘world music’, as well as of ‘new age’ and ‘ambient’. Popol Vuh regularly contributed soundtracks to the films of Werner Herzog that include classics like ‘Aguirre’, ‘Nosferatu’, ‘Heart Of Glass’ & ‘Cobra Verde’. Messa di Orfeo is Popol Vuh’s twenthieth and last album, released in 1999 and features music played during the audio-video-light installation as performed in the Labyrinth of Molfetta (Bari-Italy). What makes this album so special is the fact that Popol Vuh were a group that almost never performed live as Florian Fricke didn't feel it would be possible to sustain the level of intensity needed for a full concert, and he preferred to spend the time he would have taken touring with writing and recording. With this unique album, POPOL VUH adds another major work to its constant search for the fusion of mysticism and music. Healing energy via sound (that are very reminiscent of the ambient pieces on Fitzcarraldo and Cobra Verde) makes these recordings spine-tinglingly beautiful. Now, for the FIRST TIME ON VINYL (these recordings only received a limited CD release in the late nineties) OWS records proudly presents a deluxe color vinyl edition exclusively for Record Store Day 2018. Strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide this release also comes with an insert containing lyrics, liner notes and rare photographic materials. Available in participating stores on 4/21

Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

The Queers are here and have been one of the most influential pop-punk bands of the last 25 years. Here, The Queers contribute two songs to this split 7” with Chris Barrows Band, leader of the legendary and now defunct Pink Lincolns. The Queers cover “Beat Your Heart Out” originally performed by The Zeros and they have re-recorded “Everything’s OK” which originally appeared on their 1998 album Punk Rock Confidential.  Their side of the 7” serves as a preview of their re-recorded version of Punk Rock Confidential, which will come be out sometime in 2018. The Chris Barrows Band provides two new songs of the snotty and catchy punk that made the Pink Lincolns so popular. You can feel the franticness and rowdiness in front man Chris Barrows voice that accompany their live shows.  These two bands, in some form, have been playing on each other’s records for years. Think of this record as the studio sequel to the 1994 split 7” “Live At Some Prick’s House” which featured The Queers and Pink Lincolns. This 7” is an essential addition to any Queers or Barrows collection.

Side A: The Queers - "Beat Your Heart Out", The Queers - "Everything's OK" Side B: Chris Barrows Band - "Lime Green", Chris Barrows Band - "Servitude"

Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

Recorded at London’s legendary Olympic Studios during the heady days of the ‘Summer of Love,’ in a landscape of fervent creativity – Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper, Hendrix, the Velvet Underground, and the Who – Satanic Majesties stands out as a dramatic landmark. The band’s first full venture into the world of ‘psychedelia,’ it may have split critical opinion at the time, but is long overdue for reassessment – an innovative and experimental piece, as much influenced by Coltrane, John Barry’s spy thriller scores, and classical composers as the blues and R&B of previous releases.  Produced by the band, engineered by Glyn Johns, and with string arrangements by John Paul Jones, it features some of their most imaginative soundscapes, which included African rhythms, mellotrons, ‘found voices,’ and full orchestration. Amongst the song highlights are the beautiful She’s A Rainbow, with its elegant harmonies, piano intro, and strings, the powerful, riff-driven Citadel, and the imposingly dark, cosmic rocker 2000 Light Years From Home, with its sinister keyboard effects (courtesy of Brian). It also features Bill Wyman’s debut writing and singing credit on a Stones release – In Another Land. The pioneering packaging – a ‘lenticular’ sleeve with a 3D-style Michael Cooper image of the band- and the album’s title (a mocking adaptation of the wording, ‘Her Britannic Majesty Requests and Requires…’ on British passports), both confirmed the group’s creative intent and also its satirical attitude.

Label: Coalmine Records
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

To celebrate Record Store Day 2018, Ohio-based Funk/Soul label Colemine Records, and the Brooklyn-based indie Hip-Hop label Coalmine Records, have teamed up for a limited-edition 7-inch release, “Head Above Water.” The double label venture boasts a new Soul jazz groove from the LA-based Funk/Soul collective, The Rugged Nuggets, B/W a reinterpretation of the track, flipped by Coalmine’s go-to producer, Small Professor, which features blistering verses from Smoke DZA, Fly Anakin and Blu, with cuts by the incomparable DJ Revolution.

Side A, as referenced on the Blue Note-flipped donuts as "COLE SIDE," effortlessly demonstrates why the The Rugged Nuggets are the newest collective to carry the torch of instrumental music. Emerging from the tight-knit Los Angeles Funk/Soul community, the 7-piece live band deliver a sound on “Head Above Water” that’s as inspired, realized and refreshing as the city landscape and culture that the musicians reside within.

Side B, as noted on the buoy-themed'donut as "COAL SIDE," represents a coast-to-coast Hip-Hop flight as DZA kicks things off by putting on for his hometown of Harlem in a major way. His verse is pure braggadocio-tinged flames and brimming with bars, among them his NY Jets-referencing closing line of “I’m Broadway Joe with my mink on drag.”

After Rev shreds the first hook chock full of quotables from Mos Def, Nas, M.O.P., 50 Cent, AZ and more, Mutant Academy’s Fly Anakin picks up right where DZA left off and delivers a relentless stream of rhymes. The VA native continues the stylish boasts when he spits, “They got a warrant for my style,” amidst a flurry of raps that demand repeated listens.

That same sentiment applies to Blu’s verse, which ends “Head Above Water” with thoughtful lyrics. The Los Angeles stalwart waxes poetic about trying to make enough bread to raise his daughter and “teach her how to bodyslam Sgt. Slaughter”—the perfect blend of wisdom and bravado that’s made Blu a legend.

This sure to be collector’s item, which boasts a double-sided insert designed by Joe Buck, is now available exclusively for Record Store Day. Both the music and partnership embody the spirit of RSD, which emanates feelings of community and soul over the bullshit…cause we’re all just tryin’ to rise up and keep our heads above water.

Hell On Earth is an ambient piece by composer Eric Alexandrakis. As he was writing, he envisioned John Malkovich speaking over the work. His inspirations were diverse and eclectic and John seemed like the perfect fit. The two met, they clicked, and Hell On Earth was created. John Malkovich, Sandro Miller and Eric Alexandrakis contemplate a world where humanity is wiped out by technology in this edgy ambient electronica and spoken word release.

Patty Smyth and Scandal

Goodbye To You! Best Of The '80s Live

Label: RockBeat Records
Quantity: 900
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Patty Smyth, both with her hit band Scandal and as a solo artist, is a true "New Wave Queen" and has always been, at heart, a rock and roll chick, and that's no truer today, now that she's back on the road.. If Smyth did nothing but marry New York punk poet Richard Hell (Television, Voidoids), then noted tennis punk and commentator John McEnroe, that would be amazing enough, but she's also earned both Oscar and Grammy nominations and recorded a series of hit singles and albums. Smyth was born in New York City, and had a very bohemian upbringing. Her mother managed legendary guitarist Link Wray and ran or owned several prominent Greenwich Village nightclubs, including the Gaslight, the Café Wha?. The group burst onto the scene in 1982 with a self-titled debut EP that turned out to be the best-selling EP in Columbia Records history, featuring the hit single, "Goodbye to You," a #1 MTV video. Scandal included the hits "Love's Got a Line on You" and "Win Some, Lose Some" on the group's first full-length album, "The Warrior", released in 1984, climbing into the Top 20 on the sales chart, eventually earning RIAA-certified platinum status. "The Warrior" remains popular to this day, featured on the radio station Flash FM in the video game Grand Theft Auto and in the third installment of Guitar Hero, Rocks the '80s. After Scandal broke up, Smyth's hard edged vocals caused Eddie Van Halen to invite her to join Van Halen (when she was 8 months pregnant!) but she declined. The first 3 sides were recorded at the Agora Ballroom in New Haven, Ct. on July 15, 1983 and side 4 was recorded from a date at Indiana University on October 22, 1984.

MORE INFO

The Calling is a brand new EP by Iranian-born Dutch artist Sevdaliza. In a short period of time, Sevdaliza amassed millions of plays on Youtube and Spotify. Her debut album Ison, released in 2017, received rave reviews from around the globe

"I find the imminate connection of the emotional body to the mind and soul intensely beautiful. Whenever I find ease in the mind, my physical pains dissolve. De-hydration of the soul, means drying out the cracks of the joints. These pains are experienced as real. They reflect in each layer of our being. In order to have clearness in our head, we need to clear our hearts. The Calling is the soul telling me to return. Ground. She is the birth of all that is. When her voice cracks, it tenderly does like joints.

I believe there will come an end to where these painpoints point. By listening. I am, before I am mine or yours.” - Sevdaliza

The Calling is a Record Store Day Exclusive, an individually numbered limited edition vinyl EP, pressed on unique hand mixed moonstone vinyl.

The Shins V. Los Lobos

The Fear

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: 12" Vinyl
Label: Third Man Records
Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

The Shins, the acclaimed pop project of songwriter James Mercer, have won the hearts of many, building strongly from the early releases on indie luminaries Sub Pop Records to the recent, deeply intimate album, Heartworms. They did the unexpected when they re-recorded every song on the album in a completely different style and reversed the running order for The Worms Heart released last month.
“the top-line melody remains intact, but everything else - the instrumentation, tempo - is altered.” -the Guardian
This split 12” titled Los Lobos vs. The Shins features three distinct versions of their song, the Fear; the original booming, sweeping track from Heartworms; the second kinetic “flipped” version from The Worm’s Heart; and the final rendition, heavy on the heartstrings, is from buddy-band Los Lobos, which took vital form while the two groups played out together. In Mercer’s words, Los Lobos “just destroyed our version.”
