As much as I love BBR, I often question their vision as to which albums they want to re-release, more often than not perfectly good versions of their releases already exist. Adding one or two single edits and maybe a 12" version (as they do) does not really justify getting an album released again IMO. They should focus on stuff that has never been on cd or has been out of print for years.

Just like the white winged dove...

Funkytown Grooves always seem to beat BBR to the punch as far as issuing "for time on CD" releases and their ability to license bonus tracks (especially vault material) leaves BBR in the dust. . I don't know what happened. BBR used to be on the ball but then a couple years ago, they seemed to mostly reissue what was already out there, and even worse, piggy-backing on FTG releases. I think because FTG has offices here in America, they are able to receive clearance on many titles and bonus tracks that BBR can't because they are based in Europe. I do have to admit BBR is far more superior with their liner notes, But, I own some BBR remasters where I was not impressed with the sound quality.

I agree! And I've even given them some suggestions on rare albums that they should remaster/reissue (the 1987 'Madame X' debut album,the 1985 Lushus Daim debut album,etc).I'm ususally satisfied with their releases,I just want them to dig deeper and bring out some stuff that's never been on CD before.

LL_COOL_J_-_RADIO_(LP)"

Availability: May 27, 2014

.

LL Cool J Radio on LP

1985's Radio is the groundbreaking debut from rap legend LL Cool J and the flagship full-length release on Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons' Def Jam Recordings. Recorded when he was just 17 years old, Radio revolutionized rap with Rubin's bare-bones yet aggressive production peppered with DJ scratches and the occasional sample and rhymes arranged more like pop songs with verses, choruses and bridges.
.
With B-boy anthems like opener "I Can't Live Without My Radio," muscular standouts like "Rock The Bells" and unprecedented rap ballads "I Want You" and "I Can Give You More," Radio represented a seismic shift in hip hop history, a landmark record that altered the genre and its possibilities, ushering in its golden age in the process.
.
"Radio remains an artistic and commercial triumph 28 years after its initial release. While Rubin’s minimalist production approach might feel foreign to modern listeners, the stripped down beats were state-of-the-art beat-making upon the album’s release, and LL’s hyper-aggressive rhyming style made him an instant star in hip-hop. Meanwhile, the album would connect with listeners going on to be certified platinum by 1989 and launching not only LL Cool J’s long-running career but helping bolster the status of Def Jam to the forefront of hip-hop. Radio remains one of the most essential hip-hop albums of all-time." - B.J. Steiner, XXL
.
LL Cool J Radio Track Listing:
1. I Can't Live Without My Radio
2. You Can't Dance
3. Dear Yvette
4. I Can Give You More
5. Dangerous
6. El Shabazz
7. Rock the Bells
8. I Need a Beat
9. That's a Lie
10. You'll Rock
11. I Want You

3RD_BASS_-_THE_CACTUS_ALBUM_(LP)"

Availability: May 27, 2014

3rd Bass The Cactus Album on LP
Originally issued on Def Jam Recordings in 1989, The Cactus Album is the Gold certified debut release from Queens, NY hip-hop trio 3rd Bass consisting of MC Serch, Prime Minister Pete Nice and DJ Richie Rich. Primarily produced by 3rd Bass members MC Serch and Pete Nice alongside Sam Sever, the album also features two tracks a piece from Prince Paul ("The Gas Face," "Brooklyn-Queens") and The Bomb Squad ("Steppin' to the A.M.," "Oval Office") and a guest spot from Zev Love X aka MF Doom.
.
"Arguably as underrated as any LP in hip-hop history, The Cactus Album is full of great songs filled with intricate lyricism, goofy put-ons, racial nuance and spectacular production provided by hip-hop heavyweights such as Prince Paul, the Bomb Squad along with the group’s primary producer Sam Sever. “The Gas Face” featuring a young Zev Love X – the man who would become MF Doom – is a hip-hop classic that skewers questionable rappers, racism and pop-appropriation. Meanwhile, “Steppin’ To The A.M.” and “Brooklyn Queens” are gravelly tributes to their hometown of New York City and the culture that birthed hip-hop.
.
"The album crackles with an intensity and wit that makes it a rewarding listening. For the era, the album was a commercial success earning the aspirant group a Gold plaque a few months after it’s release. However, the album’s true legacy remains in proving that hip-hop could be performed and enjoyed by white kids without the nasty feeling of cultural appropriation that would follow along with the group’s contemporaries such as Vanilla Ice. The Cactus Album remains a seminal album in hip-hop’s growing multicultural influence." - B.J. Steiner, XXL
.
3rd Bass The Cactus Album Track Listing:
1. Stymie's Theme
2. Sons of 3rd Bass

HANK_WILLIAMS_-_THE_GARDEN_SPOT_PROGRAMS_1950_(LP)"

Hank Williams The Garden Spot Programs 1950 on Limited Edition Colored LP + Download Card

Previously Unreleased Music from Hank Williams Unheard for Over Six Decades
Transferred, Restored and Mastered from Original Transcription Discs by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Michael Graves
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Release: May 19, 2014
.
Omnivore Recordings is pleased to issue the full-length version of The Garden Spot Programs 1950, featuring 24 performances, unheard for 64 years, from country music legend Hank Williams. Rescued from obscurity, these shows originally aired more than six decades ago; The Garden Spot Programs 1950 collects material from the four episodes now known to exist.
.
From hits to standards to songs rarely (if ever) performed, this is pure Hank Williams, including playful between-song banter. Featuring fully restored audio, The Garden Spot Programs 1950 is an exceptional listening experience. Painstakingly transferred, restored and mastered from original transcription discs by Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Graves. Also includes informative liner notes from co-producer and Williams biographer Colin Escott.
.
Escott writes in his notes: “Set the time machine for early morning on KSIB-AM, Creston, Iowa. February 1950. Country radio was beginning its slow transition from live music to DJ shows. Live music and DJ shows were augmented by transcribed shows. After buying 15 minutes of airtime on small-market stations, sponsors would prerecord shows with well known artists, duplicate them, and ship them out on 12 or 16-inch transcribed discs.
.
“That’s how Hank Williams came to be on KSIB in February 1950. Sandwiched between the local ‘live’ acts, it was almost as if he were visiting with Skeets and those Radio Rascals. His sponsor was one of the nation’s largest plant nurseries, Naughton Farms, seven hundred miles south in Waxahachie, Texas. Given that Naughton was a big player in the nursery business, Hank’s shows were almost certainly shipped to many small stations, but only KSIB’s copies survived. Those of us who have studied Hank’s life and career had no idea that these recordings existed.”
.
Any music from Hank Williams is worth celebrating. Discovering material that has been unheard for generations is monumental. Williams’ daughter, Jett, is excited that her father’s lost material is not only seeing the light of day decades later, but will be available on LP. The first pressing will be on limited edition translucent red vinyl (with black vinyl to follow) plus download card.
.
“It’s incredible to me that we’re still finding new recordings by my dad - great ones at that,” says Jett. “No one even suspected that these recordings existed. We partnered with Omnivore Recordings for this release, and I especially love it that they’re taking my dad back to vinyl.”
.
Recording Details:
Tracks 1 - 6 taken from Naughton Farms Garden Spot Program: show #4
Tracks 7 - 12 taken from Naughton Farms Garden Spot Program: show #9
Tracks 13 - 18 taken from Naughton Farms Garden Spot Program: show #10

.

The first rap music ever recorded in a studio and put on wax was an attempt to duplicate the sounds bubbling up from small clubs in dilapidated areas of New York City, places where DJs spun funky disco records and MCs chatted up the crowd with witty rhymes. After Sylvia Robinson took a chance and issued “Rapper’s Delight” in 1979, the floodgates opened as dozens of musical entrepreneurs realized that they too could commit these party soundtracks to vinyl. While the output of prolific independent labels like Robinson’s Sugar Hill, Enjoy in Harlem and the majors who dabbled in the genre (Mercury’s “Christmas Rappin’” and Spring’s “King Tim III”) is well known, there were numerous smaller players in the game who made their own worthy attempts at the new genre.

Old School Hip-Hop, 1980s Hip-Hop, Obscure rap from BBE

BBE’s new compilation Rock It… Don’t Stop It! shines a light on ten of these pre-’83 obscurities. With selections from “Brooklyn, Boston and Beyond,” as the subtitle has it, the comp makes available a series of tunes that—aside from the requisite rarity (you would’ve been be hard pressed to find these even when they were originally released)—give a good look at this underdocumented part of rap music.

.

As for the music itself, it’s naturally all about a funky downtempo disco beat, one that often interpolates a popular club record (Jimmy Williams’s “All...y Lovin” for “To the Max” or Yaz’s “Don’t Go” for “Sweat,” to pick two). The rapping is alternately clever, overblown, nimble, humorous and occasionally clumsy. In other words, not much different than a random cross section of today’s rapping would be, except in style.

.

As a historical document, Rock It… is essential. The brief liner notes provide enough material to satisfy the casual reader and set the serious scholar on the right path. For DJs, the package (available as a two-LP set as well as in digital formats) provides ten potent ingredients to spice up your sets. And for the listener who is simply a fan of good music, the set is a quirky, enjoyable hour-and-fifteen of fun.

Funkytown Grooves always seem to beat BBR to the punch as far as issuing "for time on CD" releases and their ability to license bonus tracks (especially vault material) leaves BBR in the dust. . I don't know what happened. BBR used to be on the ball but then a couple years ago, they seemed to mostly reissue what was already out there, and even worse, piggy-backing on FTG releases. I think because FTG has offices here in America, they are able to receive clearance on many titles and bonus tracks that BBR can't because they are based in Europe. I do have to admit BBR is far more superior with their liner notes, But, I own some BBR remasters where I was not impressed with the sound quality.




[Edited 4/18/14 5:52am]

I am in complete agreement with u guyz. FTG seems 2 be on the cutting edge of remastery/reissuance when it comes 2 actual "R&B" titles, as does Soulmusic Records. Additionally, BBR, as of late, has been reissuing some really WHACK Disco titles such as Salsoul Orchestra, Silver Convention and the like. I seriously can't imagine myself vaccuming or dusting to that stuff. Though the packaging is stunning, as r the included bookets, some things just haven't survived the test of time. Such is the case with the Salsoul Orchestra. What's next? "Christmas Jolies?" (Salsoul Orchestra X-mas albums.) Ugh. Hope not. Happy Easter, funky peeps! Hugz! smile

Holland-Dozier-Holland: The Complete 45’s Collection

Available May 19, 2014

.

2014 marks the 45th Anniversary of the launch of the Invictus, HotWax and Music Merchant labels – the trio of labels that Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland launched following their acrimonious split from Berry Gordy’s Motown Empire. Since the 45rpm record was the fulcrum of the new operation, we thought this would be the perfect excuse to celebrate the 45th anniversary by pulling together every single 45 release from the discography of Invictus, Hot Wax and Music Merchant - both A and B sides.That’s 96 x Invictus 45s, 44 x Hot Wax 45s and 17 x Music Merchant 45s – 157 singles and 269 original recordings total.

.

In addition to the above we also scoured the world for many of the legendary unreleased singles and a number of extremely rare acetates now residing in private collections. We managed to unearth previously unreleased recordings by the Chairmen Of The Board, Eloise Laws, Honey Cone, the Barrino Brothers, the Jones Girls and 100 Proof Aged In Soul, so we’ve popped these in as a bonus. So another 16 tracks there. Oh and did we mention the 3 unreleased Tom Moulton remixes we found on Chairmen Of The Board’s “Give Me Just A Little More Time” and “You’ve Got Me Dangling On A String” and Freda Payne’s “Unhooked Generation”? Or the 3 exclusive Tom Moulton instrumental mixes of the above only available via an enclosed Download card.?

.

We recruited Dean Rudland to write the 60 page accompanying booklet and scoured the world for some interesting scans and pieces of memorabilia and we’ve housed everything inside a deluxe user-friendly box designed for quick reference. This is the most comprehensive re-issue project ever undertaken on this important part of Soul music history. The Invictus, HotWax and Music Merchant labels continued Holland-Dozier-Holland’s golden touch with back to back international hits like FredaPayne’s iconic “Band Of Gold” and Chairmen Of The Board’s “Give Me Just A Little More Time” and then went to further huge successes with Honey Cone and Laura Lee among many others. Now, for the first time ever, you can own the whole catalogue in one superb and lavish box set.

DAVE_BRUBECK_QUARTET_-_TIME_OUT_(200G_45RPM_2LP)"

Dave Brubeck Quartet Time Out on 200g 45RPM 2LP from Analogue Productions
Definitive Audiophile Edition: Cut at 45RPM by Bernie Grundman and Pressed at Quality Record Pressings

First Time in Deluxe Gatefold Jacket: Features Rare B&W Session Photos; Special Outer Jacket Shell by Stoughton Printing

One of the Five-Most Commercially Significant and Creatively Successful Jazz Albums Ever Recorded

High-Charting Effort Includes the Breakthrough Hit "Take Five"

Also Available on Hybrid SACD
Few things are better than when one of history's truly, inarguably all-time-great albums comes to life like never before on a spectacular LP edition that simply makes the music live and breathe, as if it's being created in the moment. This is one of those pressings. And when it comes to jazz, nothing surpasses Time Out.
.
All music lovers have likely heard the Dave Brubeck Quartet, even if they've never realized it. The collective's smash hit "Take Five" has graced the soundtracks of multiple films, including Mighty Aphrodite, Pleasantville, and Constantine, and remains famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melodyas well as its use of unusual 5/4 time. Here's the rare jazz track that became a pop hit.
.
It's just one of the reasons why Time Out is a jazz and audiophile classic. The 1959 landmark belongs in every record collection. But none more so than this Analogue Productions version, a reference-caliber sonic spectacular cut at 45RPM on 200-gram premium vinyl,and pressed at Quality Record Pressings.
.
With the program material now spread over four sides of vinyl, reducing distortion and high-frequency loss, and wider-spaced grooves to let stereo cartridges track more accurately, we guarantee you've never heard the pianist's nonpareil blend of cool and West Coast jazz emerge with such depth, detail, dimensionality, and liveliness. In addition, for the first time in its history, Time Out comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket featuring eight fantastic black-and-white images shot during the recording session at Columbia's famous 30th Street Studios.
.
Moreover, the heavy-duty jacket is produced by Stoughton Printing and claims a printed wrap mounted to a heavyweight chipboard shell in order to produce an authentic old-school look and feel. Never has the effort's iconic cover art looked so vibrant. About that picture: Record-label sales executives didn't want a painting on the cover, according to Brubeck. And an entire album of originals? That wouldn't work either, he was told. Fortunately, Brubeck ignored conventional wisdom and Time Out became a watershed release. Brubeck proved creative jazz and popular success can go together.
.
Within weeks of release, Time Out peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard pop albums chart and was certified platinum. "Take Five" became a mainstream hit, reaching No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 5 on the Easy Listening survey, the precursor to today's Adult Contemporary charts.
.
Sales aside, Brubeck and Co.'s playing, and the cerebral compositions within, continue to make Time Out one of the most beloved albums of the past century, genre aside. You owe it to yourself to hear it in the best analog fidelity possible. You owe it to yourself to get this pressing.

.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet Time Out Track Listing:
1. Blue Rondo A La Turk
2. Strange Meadow Lark
3. Take Five
4. Three To Get Ready
5. Kathy's Waltz
6. Everybody's Jumpin'
7. Pick Up Sticks

.

James 'Blood' Ulmer was once described by the omnipotent Village Voice music critic and co-founder of the Black Rock Coalition, Greg Tate, as: “...the missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other.” The talented guitarist, vocalist and composer hovers atop the pantheon of American music mavericks, forging an unyielding synthesis of musical styles, vision and virtuosity.
Ulmer’s career would take a dramatic turn upon arriving in New York City in ’71 and meeting the legendary avant-garde jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman. The association would lead to a stint in Coleman’s revolutionary group, as well as, collaborations with a colossal lot of groundbreaking, experimental musicians: Rashied Ali, Larry Young, Joe Henderson, Paul Bley and Arthur Blythe to name but a few.
.
Alongside violinist Charles Burnham and drummer Warren Benbow, Ulmer delivered his avant-garde masterwork Odyssey in 1983, an album of visceral, raw emotion that went straight to the depths of deepest, darkest Africa, while simultaneously traversing the American music landscape. Blues, jazz, funk, country and freeform noise spilled over in dense musical themes and sonic structures. Odyssey is considered by many as a peak moment in daring American jazz music.
.

Betty Davis - Betty Davis

CD, LP, MP3

.

One can hardly imagine the genre-busting, culture-crossing musical magic of Outkast, Prince, Erykah Badu, Rick James, The Roots, or even the early Red Hot Chili Peppers without the influence of R&B pioneer Betty Davis. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defies any notions that women can’t be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli to Ludacris have rhymed over her intensely strong but sensual music.

.

There is one testimonial about Betty Davis that is universal: she was a woman ahead of her time. In our contemporary moment, this may not be as self-evident as it was thirty years ago – we live in an age that’s been profoundly changed by flamboyant flaunting of female sexuality: from Parlet to Madonna, Lil Kim to Kelis. Yet, back in 1973 when Betty Davis first showed up in her silver go-go boots, dazzling smile and towering Afro, who could you possibly have compared her to? Marva Whitney had the voice but not the independence. Labelle wouldn’t get sexy with their “Lady Marmalade” for another year while Millie Jackson wasn’t “Feelin’ Bitchy” until 1977. Even Tina Turner, the most obvious predecessor to Betty’s fierce style wasn’t completely out of Ike’s shadow until later in the decade.

.

Ms. Davis’s unique story, still sadly mostly unknown, is unlike any other in popular music. Betty wrote the song “Uptown” for the Chambers Brothers before marrying Miles Davis in the late ‘60s, influencing him with psychedelic rock, and introducing him to Jimi Hendrix — personally inspiring the classic album ’Bitches Brew.’

.

But her songwriting ability was way ahead of its time as well. Betty not only wrote every song she ever recorded and produced every album after her first, but the young woman penned the tunes that got The Commodores signed to Motown. The Detroit label soon came calling, pitching a Motown songwriting deal, which Betty turned down. Motown wanted to own everything. Heading to the UK, Marc Bolan of T. Rex urged the creative dynamo to start writing for herself. A common thread throughout Betty’s career would be her unbending Do-It-Yourself ethic, which made her quickly turn down anyone who didn’t fit with the vision. She would eventually say no to Eric Clapton as her album producer, seeing him as too banal.

.

In 1973, Davis would finally kick off her cosmic career with an amazingly progressive hard funk and sweet soul self-titled debut. Davis showcased her fiercely unique talent and features such gems as “If I’m In Luck I Might Get Picked Up” and “Game Is My Middle Name.” The album Betty Davis was recorded with Sly & The Family Stone’s rhythm section, sharply produced by Sly Stone drummer Greg Errico, and featured backing vocals from Sylvester and the Pointer Sisters.

1. If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up

2. Walkin Up The Road
3. Anti Love Song
4. Your Man My Man
5. Ooh Yea
6. Steppin In Her I. Miller Shoes
7. Game Is My Middle Name
8. In The Meantime

Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different

CD, LP, MP3

.

Her 1974 sophomore album They Say I’m Different features a worthy-of-framing futuristic cover challenging David Bowie’s science fiction funk with real rocking soul-fire, kicked off with the savagely sexual “Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him” (later sampled by Ice Cube). Her follow up is full of classic cuts like “Don’t Call Her No Tramp” and the hilarious, hard, deep funk of “He Was A Big Freak.”

.

1. Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him
2. He Was a Big Freak
3. Your Mama Wants Ya Back
4. Don't Call Her No Tramp
5. Git In There
6. They Say I'm Different
7. 70's Blues
8. Special People

.
9. He Was a Big Freak (Record Plant Rough Mixes - Digital Only Bonus Track)
10. Don't Call Her No Tramp (Record Plant Rough Mixes - Digital Only Bonus Track)

Donnie & Joe Emerson - Still Dreamin’ Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81
LITA 115 (LP | CD | Digital)
Available: June 17, 2014
Pre-order Now!

Some people have to wait for fame; some people wait even longer than most. Donnie and Joe Emerson are in a league of their own.

.

As teenagers in Fruitland, Washington in the late ‘70s, the farming brothers dreamed of being heard. The synthesizers were sometimes crude and the 8-track recorder had its limitations, but the brothers aimed at nothing short of perfection in their home studio on the farm. They titled their 1979 debut Dreamin’ Wild, and, as multi-instrumentalist Donnie later admitted, “Joe and I basically lived the dream of the title of the album.” The same goes for their parents who heavily believed in their sons’ musical dreams, taking out a second mortgage on the farm and investing $100,000 in a dream that refused to die. But their privately funded, private press record sank without trace, the family lost most of their 1,600 acre farm, and as Joe focused on the family farming business, Donnie focused on his solo career.

.

As for Dreamin’ Wild, things began to change three decades later, when record collector Jack Fleischer bought a copy of the album for $5 at a Spokane thrift shop. Something about the brothers’ smiles, bouffant hair, and matching white jumpsuits gave him a good feeling. Fleischer’s blogging about the album brought it to the attention of cult musician Ariel Pink, who recorded his own version of standout track “Baby.” Eventually re-released on Light In The Attic and widely available for the first time, the album chimed louder a lifetime after its conception: Pitchfork described it as a “a godlike symphony to teen hood.” The New York Times flew out to the family farm, while Jimmy Fallon took to Twitter to proclaim his love for the duo.

.

But Dreamin’ Wild does not tell the full story. In a relatively short span of time – just two and half years – the boys put close to 70 songs down on tape, all recorded at that magical home studio on the farm. A dozen of them are included here on Still Dreamin’ Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 and ready to be enjoyed for the first time ever. With a familiar blend of FM rock, power pop, and new wave, these 12 tracks cover the entirety of that fruitful period, stretching from the second song Donnie ever recorded (“Everybody Knows It”) – to tracks documenting his temporary move to L.A. in 1981.

.

Donnie’s life story is in these songs. Where Dreamin’ Wild captures the teenage experience, Still Dreamin’ Wild tells a broader story, one in which teenage dreams turn to painful yearning. So where the Beach Boys indebted “Ooh Baby Yeah” is inspired by a teenage girlfriend, “Big Money” shows the emergence of a naive political awareness. Later, 1981′s “One True Love” captures the sound of what Donnie described as “the city as imagined from the farm,” and the epic closing track, “Don’t Disguise The Way You Feel” found Donnie after high school, feeling stifled and frustrated in the isolation of the countryside and mourning the loss of his friend and occasional backing vocalist Dwayne. It is, quite simply, heartbreaking.

.

The long-belated success of Dreamin’ Wild has given the Emerson brothers – still close, and still the heart of a loving family – a new lease of life. They’ve finally taken their music on the road, performing at Seattle’s Showbox followed by New York’s Mercury Lounge. Still Dreamin’ Wild proves that the album wasn’t a fluke, and that Donnie’s songwriting is as consistent as it is rare. All this time later, we finally have the pleasure of hearing the brothers’ music. And the good news? They’ve still got the jumpsuits.

Hello, music fans! I am so pleased to be able to announce another remastered reissue is on the way. I am curating the deluxe edition of "Exposure" by Exposé for Cherry Red. It will feature the original album alongside the single versions, 12" remixes and b-sides which were released during the promotion of the trio's debut longplayer.

As always, there will be detailed liner notes by my good friend and fellow music aficionado, Bill Pitzonka. I'm putting together a full color, singles discography for the booklet. I'm glad to hear some of you like the fact that I geek out on this kind of information. Also, I'm trying my best to include some rare photos. And, if I ask very nicely, the ladies of Exposé - Ann, Gioia and Jeanette - might contribute track annotations, Yes, the PWL 12" remix of "Point Of No Return" will be a part of this set. A lot of the remixes will make their CD debut on this collection.

Hopefully, the deluxe edition of "Exposure" will hit the "shops" by September.
Nick Ashford was someone I greatly admired, had the honor of knowing, and was the real-life inspiration for Cowboy Curtis' hair. RIP Nick. - Pee Wee Herman
