COMPLETE 1978 LIVE CONCERT RECORDING - FIRST TIME ON VINYL

The two-time Edison-Award winning blues band from the Netherlands, Barrelhouse, will release their complete live recording with Albert Collins as part of RSD Drops 2021.

The year is 1978 and Barrelhouse invited Albert Collins to join them for a TV show. At the time he was not as well known in Europe as he would later become. It became his first appearance on national TV outside of the United States. He returned to the Netherlands later that year for a short tour and the recording of this live album. “Albert Collins and his manager Dick Shurman arrived on the airport, he brought a flightcase with his Fender Telecaster, a packet of spare strings and a suitcase. On stage he was a star, off stage he was one of the band, wanted to travel in the Barrelhouse 9 seater.”

This RSD Drops release on 180g Translucent Red/Solid White/Black vinyl contains an extra, never-pressed-to-vinyl, track “Things I Used To Do”, which completes the concert by Collins and Barrelhouse on December 28, 1978.


A1 Frosty (Live) A2 Honey Hush (Live) A3 I've Got a Mind to Travel (Live) A4 Don't Lose Your Cool (Live) A5 Things I Used to Do (Live)

B1 Blue River Rising (Live) B2 Cock It on the Wall (Live) B3 Conversation with Collins (Live) B4 Keep Your Business Straight (Live)

June - RSD First


The hard-hitting, melodic heavy metal band Alcatrazz celebrate RSD Drops 2021 with the release of a colored double vinyl edition of their latest studio offering, Born Innocent. The 13-track opus, having previously only been available on CD and digital formats and never on vinyl will be a must-have collectible for anyone who considers themselves a fan of rock (pun intended!)

Their first studio venture since 1986’s Dangerous Game. Alongside the unique vocal prowess and range of star frontman and founding member Graham Bonnet, Born Innocent also features fellow founding members Jimmy Waldo and Gary Shea. And from the classic album art, featuring the mighty rock itself, Born Innocent is a journey into the sort of heavy, melodic and supremely articulated hard rock that is a cornerstone of the likes of Rainbow and the Michael Schenker Group, territory Alcatrazz successfully strode in the ‘80s before going on hiatus.

Born Innocent was produced by Jimmy Waldo with Giles Lavery and mixed and mastered by Andy Haller and features many former stars from Graham's long career. Guest appearances include Chris Impellitteri, who wrote the music and played all guitars on the arpeggio-powered “Born Innocent”, with Bonnet’s vocals soaring to old-school heights, as did Bob Kulick for the majestic “I Am The King”. Virtuoso Japanese guitar maestro Nozomu Wakai similarly wrote and played guitars on the double-kick steel-plated Irish warrior ode “Finn McCool”, while the six-string legend that is Steve Vai wrote “Dirty Like The City”, with Bonnet once again powerfully hitting notes that are beyond the business of most humans.

As fans will immediately hear, Alcatrazz are back doing what only they can do with Born Innocent, delivering quality hard rock with genuine storyteller lyrics, virtuoso performances and an added layer of modern ‘heavy’ that underscores the melodic excellence. Don’t miss out on this piece of rock history.

All Them Witches are known for their loud and lengthy live shows. 2020 found the band releasing their critically acclaimed album, Nothing As The Ideal. An album release from this band would traditionally be followed by a lengthy 18-month tour across the globe. Due to an international pandemic, the band’s touring plans were brought to a halt, but this did not stop All Them Witches from assembling in a studio to broadcast a live set for their fans. The set was roundly received as an amazing performance and fans immediately inquired as to whether or not this show would be available on vinyl. New West Records is proud to present All Them Witches Live On The Internet. This 16-song set will be pressed on six variations of color vinyl across 3 LPs, housed in an individually numbered, foil stamped wide spine jacket with spot gloss.

Originally released in 1990, Ani DiFranco's first album is so revolutionary that the purveyors of status quo install women's music sections in the dusty corner of their stores in order to hide it. Dorm rooms coast to coast transform into audio dub houses where young women with aching arms scratch out hand-written labels and personal letters like "you have to hear this." These quasi-booking agent and pirate distributors work long into the night purchasing greyhound tickets for a certain young Folksinger to come play at their school. Today. Folk and poetry prevail. Vulnerable stories arm themselves as powerful songs on Ani DiFranco's self-titled first solo record. Ani's voice is rich and eloquent. Her guitar moves like an appendage. From cockroach pus to abortion rights the record doesn't flinch. This singer/songwriter folk mecca contains songs with an epic stage life such as, "Both Hands," "Out of Habit," "The Slant," and "Fire Door." All of the tracks embody the love and humor inherent in Ani's music. Thematically this record gives a face to feminism that is both beautiful and accessible to anyone. The stories focus on relationships and humanity. We sit in the waiting room of an abortion clinic after facing an angry crowd in "Lost Woman Song." "Talk to Me Now" and "The Story" confront the inequality of the sexes in a man's world. The love songs examine relationships with the same discernment as the political ones. "Both Hands" is a hands down favorite among any DiFranco fan. "Every Angle" infuses the thrill of protest with the joy of a crush, "thoughts of you are picketing my brain/ they refuse to work such long hours without rest/ in unstable conditions at best." And the unforgettably poetic and guitarific, "Fire Door" is a heartfelt treat in its first studio recording.

Perennial indie rockers Born Ruffians return with Squeeze, their seventh album. Squeeze (a companion piece to their previous album, Juice) finds the trio expanding their sound into more psychedelic territory, especially apparent on tracks like "Sinking Ships" and "Death Bed." Lead singer and songwriter Luke Lalonde shares vocal duties with indie pop luminary Hannah Georgas on "Waylaid," and the band finds a way to incorporate their anthemic, hooky roots within their new sound on "30th Century War" and "Sentimental Saddle."

Brainiac proudly hailed From Dayton Ohio. They put it on their T-shirts and proclaimed it religiously from the stage everywhere they went. On this double album by the same name, is the band's history unfolding from a new lens, chronologically through remastered singles, covers, and previously unreleased tracks over sides A and B. Sides C and D present a never before heard (or even torrented) example of their bombastic live experience: a concert recording from the legendary Blind Pig in Champaign-Urbana. The gatefold artwork contains a band family tree of sorts, centering Brainiac to many of their local contemporaries as well as various pictures from the band's personal collections. Listening to this release will not get you Y2K compliant, but it is a fresh reminder of how exciting Brainiac was as well as further evidence that Ohio once reigned supremely weird.

June Limited Run

The music of Brainiac ended with the death of frontman Tim Taylor in 1997. Offered here is a glimpse into the working mind of Taylor as he susses out tunes and sound experiments in their rawest form, mostly alone with a four track in his mother's attic. Some are mere sketches. Many never again saw the light of day, or morphed so much they are more like distant cousins of future songs. Some of the more interesting Brainiac songs, like Fucking With The Altimeter, Silver Iodine, or Strung, were elevated from the original four and eight track demos later in the studio environment. Attic Tapes serves as a blueprint for how these types of tunes developed. The entire program is stitched together like a distorted dream. Jumping from one scene to the next, it progresses through all four sides in a historically linear fashion, from the very early days through to the final rehearsals.

While this is not an official Brainiac album, it begins to feel akin to what a Brainiac record might sound like if it were produced by neighbor and Guided by Voices raconteur Robert Pollard. Inside the release are some historically related liner notes written by guitarist John Schmersal giving further insight into the origins and backdrop of the demos and the time they were created.

The Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation then the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film.   The set does however include the track, “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film.  Interest in John Carpenter's original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one of a kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes an all new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.

Heavy Sun, the soulful, debut from Daniel Lanois and his invigorating new all-star band. Recorded in Los Angeles and Toronto, the album fuses classic gospel and modern electronics, mixing gritty, human textures with crisp, digital accents and lush, swirling atmospherics to create a sound that's at once warmly familiar and boldly unexpected. The arrangements here are spacious and dreamy, anchored by rich, righteous organ topped with airy falsetto and mesmerizing four-part harmony, and the writing is buoyant and soulful to match, tapping into the shared uncertainty of the human condition to offer hope, comfort, and connection at a time when all three run in desperately short supply. For RSD Drops this year comes the vinyl debut of this critically acclaimed album. Pressed on Translucent Ruby inside Opaque Orchid colored vinyl, and limited to a worldwide run of 4000.  Includes a download card.

MORE INFO

Radio Birdman's Deniz Tek and Engineer/Producer Andy "Mort" Bradley have had a long and productive history working together in Houston's legendary  SugarHill Studios.

Home to International Artist records, the 13th Floor Elevators, The Sir Douglas Quintet, Roy Head and countless others, SugarHill was central to the psychedelic scene that erupted in the sixties. Andy got an all star lineup together to record ripping new versions of these classic hits by Fever Tree and The Bubble Puppy.

The band features Houston singer Tomas Escalante on lead vocals, the late fretboard master Kenny Cordray and Deniz Tek on guitars, Rob Landes from the original Fever Tree on B3, and Mark Andes from Spirit on bass. Houston session luminaries keyboardist Paul English and drummers Tyson Sheth and Todd Harrison round out the lineup.

Stunning picture sleeve art by Sabrina Gabrielli evokes the spirit of the times. The single carries a dedication to Kenny Cordray. His sudden and tragic demise occurred right after his amazing work on these sessions, which were to be his last.

Limited to 500 copies. Artwork by Sabrina Gabrielli

Rude Boy-Curious Post-Punk Lightning In A Bottle!

'...all of these songs are based on post-Marcusian cliches sophisticated enough to get the average rock fan thinking hard, and some of them are based on post-Marcusian ideas sophisticated enough to get the average post-Marcusian thinking hard. Sounds unmusical but it isn't that either--the singing is clever and impassioned, the punkish, futuristic reggae-synthesizer fusion often catchy and always apt.' - Robert Christgau

Available for the first time on vinyl is the complete OLYMPIA THEATRE, PARIS, FRANCE 5/3/72 show from the Grateful Dead’s legendary Europe ‘72 Tour. 6-LP, 180-Gram, Limited Edition of 10,000 worldwide.

Of the twenty-two performances on the famed Europe '72 tour, the first night in Paris on 5/3/72 has always been considered one of the best. This is proven by the fact that four songs from this concert were included on the seventeen-track, seminal platinum-selling Europe '72 album.

Featuring an “Other One” that comes out of Truckin' and weaves in and out of other thematic and deep-space jams, as well as a side trip to Me And Bobby McGee, this is some of the Grateful Dead's best, most inspired improvisation. The performance also includes five songs sung by Pigpen on what would be his final tour, including a massive Good Lovin' which allows Pigpen to do what he does best: hold the audience in the palm of his hand while they hang on his every word. Mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman and mastered for vinyl by GRAMMY ® Award-winning engineer David Glasser. Produced for release by David Lemieux.

An archaeological discovery! A newly-found copy of the original 1977 Track Records master tape, without 'mud'!

This classic punk album, recorded in London by the New York band featuring two New York Dolls, was always controversial - and not just for the acronym. Upon its release on Track Records in 1977, it was widely condemned for having a 'muddy mix' - later found to be a mastering fault. When Track went bust the following year, manager Leee Black Childers burgled the office and liberated the tapes - he found everything except the master.

Subsequent releases were remixed from the multi-tracks or compiled from outtake mixes - the 'lost '77 mixes' in 1994 being well-received and the version most known ever since. A lift from the vinyl didn't achieve much clarity. Meanwhile, fans found the '77 cassette version didn't have the infamous 'mud', nor did certain European vinyl matrixes.

In 2020 a chance meeting led to Daniel Secunda's archives. He was an old-school music biz pioneer who understood punk, was a Track Records director, and the Heartbreakers’ L.A.M.F. co-producer. In amongst his many tape boxes were two with no artist name, marked 'Copy Master 12.7.77'. They turned out to be a crystal-clear L.A.M.F., just as the band and producers intended it.

Sadly, in August 2020 the Heartbreakers co-lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Walter Lure passed away. He was the last of the Heartbreakers’ L.A.M.F. line-up: Johnny Thunders died in 1991, Jerry Nolan in 1992, and Billy Rath in 2014. Walter's autobiography is published in paperback in May 2021.

For RSD Drops 2021, a limited edition release on purple vinyl with new notes by Simon Wright, plus a poster featuring a Roberta Bayley cover outtake picture.

This year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Hooverphonics’ debut album A New Stereophonc Sound. Music On Vinyl in cooperation with Sony Music and Alex Callier are releasing four Hooverphonic remix EPs. Each represents a Hooverphonic album: A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular, Blue Wonder Power Milk, The Magnificent Tree and Presents Jackie Cane.

Alex Callier selected the best remixes of their songs for each remix EP. The first, A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular remixes is available as part of RSD Drops. Only 2000 individually numbered copies on solid purple are pressed. (The other three are scheduled to be released later in 2021.

Hooverphonic are a Belgian band that formed in October 1995. Though originally categorized as a trip hop group, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be described as a lone genre, but rather encompass alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and a mixture of others. The band originally called themselves Hoover, but later changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name and to avoid any legal issues with the vacuum cleaner company.

Since their formation, Hooverphonic's lineup consisted of bassist Alex Callier, guitarist Raymond Geerts, and various lead singers. Geike Arnaert (1997–2008, 2020-present) has recently re-joined the band.

Hooverphonic were supposed to represent Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. However, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will instead represent Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.

The band achieved international recognition through the inclusion of the Stereophonic track "2Wicky" on the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci's 1996 film Stealing Beauty. "2Wicky" also appeared on the soundtracks of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Heights. The track's main riff is sampled from Isaac Hayes' recording of the 1960s hit "Walk On By".

“Inhaler” is, not least thanks to those wonderfully fanning out guitars, still a missed world hit.

Remix duties are fulfilled by drum ‘n bass producer Dj Pulse, owner of the Creative Wax label, and the late Hector Zazou. Both gave some LTJ Bukem-esque vibes to “Inhaler” and “2 Wicky”.

Furthermore, Alex Callier and the band re-recorded both songs and added some extra strings to “Inhaler”.

June - RSD First

Nel 2021 ricorrono gli ottant’anni di Pino Donaggio e i sessant’anni del suo debutto artistico al Festival di Sanremo con la canzone Come Sinfonia.

La pianista e compositrice trentina Isabella Turso ha realizzato un album per pianoforte solo contenente sue composizioni originali che traggono spunto da alcune citazioni delle canzoni e musiche per film di Donaggio.

La compositrice ha utilizzato principalmente temi musicali tratti da colonne sonore, evitando di arrangiarli nella loro compiutezza, bensì ricreando nuove elaborazioni e libere parafrasi in un’ambientazione classica-pop-jazz, che le è particolarmente congeniale.

Il lavoro di Isabella non tradisce la natura di ogni brano, ma semmai tende a estenderne le possibilità espressive, al di là del contesto originale, e rappresenta un colorato omaggio a un grande musicista italiano.

In occasione del Record Store Day, la Bluebelldisc è lieta di presentare l'LP dell'album Omaggio a Donaggio di Isabella Turso.

Edizione limitata 100 copie, packaging busta bauletto e vinile bianco, 14 brani.

June - RSD First

For his third full-length album, Jacques Renault explores his craft through the format of the classic late-night radio megamix. It's a tour de force that finds him blending his quick-cutting DJ sensibilities with his crate-digging, drum-chopping disco-chemist bonafides into one wham-bam party of pastiche.

This is Renault as we know him—but at hyperspeed, tearing through twenty-three tracks in under half an hour. And while it's a head rush of his trademark funky drums, sassy horns, playful synths, it's arranged as an album, with
songwriting and structure at the fore.

Imagine it as a flip on the script for Renault's most loved club 12-inches of the past, which luxuriate in long-form, stretched-out grooves that burn for hours, fills that ride for days. Instead of on pulling a thread for six, seven minutes, he romps around in a bouncy ball pit, plucking out whatever captures his imagination for a moment, then diving back in to discover another buried
nugget. It's Jacques Renault as we've always known him, but this time through a suite of bite-size vignettes instead of slow-burn grooves.

Tracklist: 
A1. Good Times
A2. Fabulous Ping Pong
A3. Jean Sefunk
A4. NVR
A5. My Left Foot
A6. The Bump
A7. Jam On It
A8. Lookout Rhythm

Early in Johnny Paycheck's pre-fame career, he toured as a sideman and bassist for George Jones in the early 1960s. At that time, he entered a recording studio in an attempt to secure a record deal as a solo artist. The recordings have been long forgotten and unheard until now. The Adams Brothers, who gained notoriety on Mike Judge's Tales From The Tour Bus episode on Paycheck, produced the songs and worked as Paycheck's band. These recordings showcase Paycheck's considerable talent long before the music world took notice. Paycheck performs songs by some of country music's most iconic songwriters such as Cowboy Jack Clement, Mel Tillis, and Bill Anderson. Step back in time and listen to uncovered country music history.

Accomplished trumpeter, composer, bandleader and educator, Kamal Abdul-Alim has been actively involved in creative music for decades. He has toured Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and the United States. He has recorded with all kinds of bands, large and small, and performed in festivals all over the world. “He takes the postbop of the 50s and free-form jazz of the 60s and turns it into an even balance of fine textures. Alim, who is highly underrated, has one of the most beautiful tones and concepts of jazz. A master of improvisation, he knows the art of weaving different ideas, whether they stem from Manhattan’s lower East Side or Europe” (Hugh Wyatt, New York Daily News). “Dance” was recorded in 1983 but first released on vinyl in 1987. Rhythm section includes drummer Idris Muhammad. Original pressings are extremely rare and expensive. “Brotherhood” is a much sought after track on the jazz dance scene. There is a high demand for this title again on vinyl and pressings are limited to 1000 copies, all individually hand numbered.

Contains previously unissued live recordings of unsung tenor saxophone hero Harold Land from The Penthouse in Seattle from 1962, 1964 and 1965 with stellar musicians including Hampton Hawes, Carmell Jones, Buddy Montgomery and Philly Joe Jones. Released in partnership with the Harold Land Estate, the deluxe limited edition, hand-numbered, 180g double LP set is mastered by Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio. The remastered audio was captured from direct transfers of the original Penthouse's tape reels. Westward Bound! includes an extensive booklet with rare photos; essays by jazz historian Michael Cuscuna, co-producers Zev Feldman and Cory Weeds, and pianist Eric Reed; plus interviews with tenor saxophone giant Joe Lovano and the legendary saxophonist Sonny Rollins.

Land developed his hard bop playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown band into a personal, modern style; often rivalling Clifford Brown's instrumental ability with his own inventive and whimsical solos. Born in Houston and grew up in San Diego he started playing at the age of 16. He made his first recording as the leader of the Harold Land All-Stars for Savoy Records in 1949. In 1954 he joined the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet, with whom he was at the forefront of the hard-bop/bebop movement. He moved to Los Angeles in 1955 and played with Curtis Counce, led his own groups, and co-led groups with Bobby Hutcherson, Blue Mitchell, and Red Mitchell. From the '70s onwards his style showed the influence of John Coltrane. In the early '80s through to the early '90s he worked regularly with the Timeless All Stars; a group sponsored by Timeless jazz records. The group consisted of Land on tenor, Cedar Walton on piano, Buster Williams on bass, Billy Higgins on drums, Curtis Fuller on trombone and Bobby Hutcherson on vibes.

Over his career he was a sideman on albums from Roy Ayers, Bill Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, Freddie Hubbard, Thelonious Monk, Wes Montgomery, Donald Byrd, Dinah Washington and countless others.

Out of print LP with limited availability in the second-hand marketplace (the CD has been reissued by Real Gone Music). This deluxe package released as part of RSD Drops will include an OBI side spine on a single cardboard album jacket, printed inner sleeves, original record labels and “double split” blue translucent vinyl.

At The Village Gate is a live album by jazz guitarist Larry Coryell, the “Godfather of Fusion”, recorded on January 21 and 22, 1971 at the Village Gate in New York City. It was released by Vanguard Records. Sadly, far too few people knew of this album at the time as its distribution was limited, but it’s a record that was recorded so well it could easily be considered a live studio release, and one that never fails to open eyes or expand horizons. It’s interesting to note that Larry’s wife Julie sings for the first time on this outing and that’s his son featured on the album jacket.

June - RSD First

The ultimate edition of the classic 1978 vocal LP from the reggae icon Lee "Scratch" Perry (aka the Upsetter), recorded at the apex of his Black Ark studio, carefully remastered and pressed on medium dark red colored vinyl, with printed inner sleeve and liner notes from Lee Perry biographer David Katz. The package includes a beautiful Adrian Boot photograph not found in the original or any previous version of this release. A must have for Lee Perry fans and serious Reggae vinyl collectors.

First released in Jamaica on the Lion Of Judah label, the longplayer was recorded with the musicians of The Upsetters, plus the vocals and engineering, arrangement & production skills of Lee Perry at the legendary Black Ark studio, backing vocals by the all female singers of the Full Experience. "Roast Fish Collie Weed & Corn Bread" is the second chapter in the trilogy of albums in the period from 1976 - 1978 "Scratch The Super Ape" (aka "Super Ape") and "Return Of The Super Ape".

Excerpt of notes from Reggae expert Jeremy Collingwood for this album: "The album was full of Perry original compositions and featured his vocal talents across the album, along with fine backing from the Full Experience, Perry's own trio of 'African Daughters'. He shows how the voice can be an instrument as he sings, talks, raps and makes noises. The title track, a remixed version of the single originally issued on the Upsetters and Orchid imprints, represented the usual Perry mix of humour and serious issues, but the developing worrying state of his mind can be heard on "Evil Tongues", as he sings 'Evil Eyes and wicket heart, I saw them coming afar... The pressure was beginning to tell, but all Perry's classic Ark sounds of deep bass, echoing and strange percussion, funky guitar, emoting sax and of course mooing sounds were present and correct"

This definitive rare groove was first released in 1978 but the unique US 7” version from 1980 has not been reissued for over 40 years and has been impossible to find. It sounds how It was originally pressed and is coupled with an extended version of the ultra-rare ‘RED 3’ mix released in the UK on Grapevine, the Richard Searling/John Anderson label that preceded Expansion “Give Me The Sunshine” was composed by Johnny Simone at the time he was working with Stevie Wonder at Motown. Others in the group were Kenny Stover and Alvin Few, all three of them born under the ‘Leo’ star sign. Kenny worked as a songwriter at Motown and lived in the same house as Marvin Gaye at the time “What’s Going On” became an idea. He co-wrote “Inner City Blues” but was only credited much later. The original “I’m Back For More” included here has equal standing in the soul world too, the song later reaching new heights when covered by Al Johnson featuring Jean Carn. Both songs come from the album “We Need Each Other”, long associated with Expansion Records. The two songs featured here first appeared on Expansion 12” in 1986, the launch year of the label which in 2021 celebrates it’s 35th Anniversary.

20th anniversary remastered reissue of M. Ward's sophomore album.  M. Ward's second solo enterprise verifies the artist as one of those few songwriters who stand between the cracks of time, where he spins a hallucinatory, new universe out of old-world roots. Indeed, there's a real down-home, unpolished luster to End of Amnesia, both in execution and in songwriting, that gives it a timeless, old-fashioned pallor. And yet there's also something just slightly off in the songs, a strange, disembodied quality that seems to come at least partly from an ulterior place, be it real or imagined. That attribute is precisely what gives the music such a singular, distinctive sound and vision. Pressed on clear vinyl.

End Of Amnesia / Color Of Water / Half Moon / So Much Water / Bad Dreams / Archangel Tale / Silverline / Flaming Heart / Carolina / From A Pirate Radio Sermon, 1989 / Psalm / Ella / Seashell Tale / O'brien/O'brien's Nocturne

MORE INFO

June - RSD First

Malacarna è un progetto audio/visivo originale formato dal cantante Tony Farina, dal produttore e chitarrista Vince Pastano e dall’artista Dorothy Bhawl. Nasce dall’idea di coniugare testi in dialetto lucano con sonorità Blues/Tribal/Cinematic/Goth/Industrial, il tutto inserito in uno specifico concept grafico e visivo dal forte impatto.

I primi passi del progetto vedono la luce nel 2016, originariamente con testi in lingua inglese. Successivamente la svolta con la decisione di utilizzare il dialetto lucano (per la precisione il burgentino), linguaggio derivante dalle origini del cantante Tony Farina. La matrice musicale è il Blues, su cui si inserisco ed espandono inserti Tribal, Ambient, Noise, Goth e Industrial. Le sonorità derivanti costruiscono atmosfere cupe e cinematiche, in grado di fornire la colonna sonora ideale di un Sabbath o di un rito pagano.

Dal punto di vista lirico, la trilogia tematica Vita/Amore/Morte costituisce la linea guida dei testi, i quali attingono a piene mani dalla cultura popolare e tradizionale del Sud Italia, in un continuo mix e connubio di sacro e profano, credenze religiose e superstizioni, storie al confine tra il mitologico e il grottesco. Lo sviluppo dei testi parte sempre da detti locali, storie popolari, citazioni o situazioni familiari. Testi quindi come poesie folkloristiche, in cui la poetica della detrazione rappresenta la chiave di volta per la costruzione del linguaggio che, nonostante l’uso del dialetto (che limita la comprensione a pochi), nasconde in sé una sua morale universale (come in realtà fanno i “detti popolari”, chiari esempi di messaggi locali con potenza espressiva ed evocativa globale).

Il nome stesso del progetto deriva da un soprannome familiare: un nomignolo che porta con sé l’intero compendio delle credenze popolari meridionali verso una figura che al contempo incuteva rispetto e timore.

Il concept grafico/visivo, così come anche l’atmosfera generale dell’intero progetto, ha chiari riferimenti cinematografici: dalle opere di David Lynch ai film di Roger Corman con le interpretazioni di Vincent Price; dall’”Anticristo” di Lars Von Trier a “The Witch” di Robert Eggers fino ad “Hagazussa” di Lukas Felgeifeid.

L’ep è in uscita a giugno 2021 per Stridulation Records, l’etichetta del produttore Marc Urselli vincitore di tre Grammy Awards. Il lavoro sarà disponibile unicamente sul bandcamp del progetto e in formato vinile.

Da segnalare il prezioso featuring di Raiz nel brano “Oh Signore”, mentre Donald Renda (batteria) e Fabrizio Luca (percussioni) sono gli altri musicisti coinvolti. Registrazione e mix a cura di Antonello D’Urso; mastering a cura di Antonello D’Urso e Claudio Adamo presso gli storici studi Fonoprint di Bologna.

Miles Davis aveva un profondo amore e rispetto per la boxe, vedendo profondi parallelismi tra "la dolce scienza" e il suo rapporto con la musica. Uno dei lavori preferiti di Miles delle sue registrazioni è stata la colonna sonora del 1971 per il documentario di Bill Cayton su Jack Johnson ed è stato ispirato dal contesto politico e razziale della leggendaria saga del pugile. Tratte dal celebre progetto ampliato 'The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions' pubblicato nel 2003 e riferito a numerose leggende pugilistiche ("Ali", "Sugar Ray", "Duran", "Johnny Bratton"), queste registrazioni intrise di funk rock sono state la musica più difficile che Miles abbia mai registrato. Con una straordinaria line-up di musicisti (Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin, Dave Holland, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Cobham) e una leggendaria foto di copertina di Miles sul ring scattata da Jim Marshall, questo album viene pubblicato in vinile colorato (giallo brillante) per la prima volta in assoluto.

July RSD First

Il primo singolo dal nuovo album di Mirwais, "2016 - My Generation", killer dei dancefloor dall'intro corale e sviluppato con un beat pulsante e chitarre stridule, è stato remixato da Chloé, produttrice e e DJ francese che ha lasciato il segno nella scena dei club con il suo tocco electro dark cerebrale, e Myd (già parte collettivo Club Cheval) , tra i produttori in rapida ascesa nella scena elettronica d'oltralpe.

Mirwais: « 2016 - My Generation » (Chloé Remix)

Per il suo remix, Chloé riporta la traccia di Mirwais nel cuore pulsante dei club, con una progressione ritmica inebriante e chitarre sature.

"Ho adorato il lavoro di Mirwais con Madonna e il suo album solista" Production ", la fusione di elettronica e pop in questi dischi ha davvero rivelato l'ambito di Mirwais come produttore senza dover scendere a compromessi. Anche se ero una fan del suo periodo degli anni '80 con i Taxi Girl, in questi dischi rivela tutta la sua capacità di reinventarsi, portando qualcosa di nuovo e potente. Così quando mi è stato chiesto di remixare "2016 -My Generation" non potevo dire di no e volevo fare qualcosa che gli sarebbe piaciuto guidando il remix in una direzione più electro e new wave. Ho anche mantenuto il suo modo di trattare il suono della chitarra, un indizio presente anche nel mio remix. "

 

Mirwais: « 2016 - My Generation » (Myd Remix)

Myd porta "2016-My Generation" in Brasile, trasformandolo in un vortice danzante con profumi di sabbia calda e Caipirinha.

"Mirwais è un vero pilastro della musica elettronica francese e uno dei produttori più creativi. L'ho scoperto davvero attraverso il suo lavoro con Madonna, è stato rivoluzionario e da fan del sampling, usare i samples in quel modo mi è sembrato una follia! È divertente che sia tornato a produrre un lavoro solista con i suoi suoni iconici, in "2016 - My Generation" trovo elementi tipici di un capolavoro! Ed è questo è l'aspetto su cui ho deciso di concentrarmi, ho immaginato il remix come la prima traccia di uno dei miei set, un intro calmo prima dell'arrivo della tempesta. Volevo mantenere il lato super festoso, e utilizzando nella mia musica molti riferimenti sudamericani, sono andato sulla batucada con l'impulso di riempire il dancefloor. Brani come samples, come faccio sempre, suonando sull'energia del brano e rendendolo quasi un disco di carnevale per attirare la folla".

PVRIS marked a new era with the release of Use Me in 2020, as frontwoman, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Lynn Gunn confidently stepped forward as PVRIS’ leader and sole architect. That newfound sense of freedom defined the record, on which Lynn wrote, played the entirely of the guitar, drums, and bass parts, cooked up beats, and of course, sang vocals. Awash in glitchy beat-craft, airy guitars, and spell-binding vocals, the record included 070 Shake collaboration “Use Me,” explosive song “Hallucinations,” plus “Dead Weight,” “Gimme A Minute,” and “Death of Me” all brought to life by producer JT Daly [K. Flay].

The deluxe edition of the acclaimed third studio album featured five new tracks, including remixes of fan-favorites “Dead Weight” (remixed by Nicole Moudaber) and “Loveless,” (remixed by Lynn herself), plus brand-new song “Thank You” featuring RAYE. For the first time ever, these five tracks are now available on coke bottle clear vinyl, exclusively for RSD Drops.

The Truth is widely regarded as one of Prince’s most underappreciated hidden gems. Originally released as an accompaniment to the 1998 triple album Crystal Ball, which marked the first time that Prince released an album totally independently, The Truth was also the first Prince album to be labeled “acoustic,” though it does contain electronic instruments and elements, and it gave listeners an unprecedented chance to hear his songwriting and voice in a stripped-down presentation. This purple vinyl release as part of RSD Drops marks the first time The Truth is available on vinyl, with gorgeous, foil-embossed artwork designed by Prince’s long-time art director Steve Parke.

Previously unreleased recording from the legendary multi- instrumentalist Kirk, cut direct from tape and issued as a 200g premium pressing with Gearbox’s famous production values. Kirk’s influence and following reaches far beyond Jazz. Hendrix idolized him and it’s easy to see why. His appetite for ripping up the rulebook has brought kudos and admirers from all sides, giving him a status and respect that ensures an unearthed, never before released recording such as this added importance.

Available for the first time on vinyl for RSD Drops 2021, The Lost Philip Glass Sessions by The Raybeats is a memento of a singular moment in New York's cultural history: a time where it felt like anything could happen, and it did. “The Raybeats represented the intersection of multiple streams of creativity, where new music and popular culture were colliding,” says Philip Glass, who joined the band in Green St. Studio along with Michael Riesman and Kurt Munkacsi on June 4th, 1982. “When we think of music and New York of that period, we think of groups like The Raybeats.” The band didn't know what to expect when they walked into the studio on that fateful day, and they wouldn't realize what they had until thirty years later. Philip Glass was already amassing an international audience at the time, and his addition to these songs was just another moment of creative spontaneity.

It comes to record stores as part of RSD Drops, for the first time on vinyl.

RECENTLY DISCOVERED IN THEIR EXTENSIVE 1970s MULTITRACK TAPE ARCHIVE AND EXTRACTED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES.

NEVER BEFORE ISSUED IN ANY FORMAT.

PRODUCED BY THE RESIDENTS.

Following the enthusiastic critical and commercial response to their pREServed reissue series, which has produced hundreds of previously unheard recordings from the band’s master tape archive, The Residents now explore the original multitrack tapes for their seminal 1970s output.

Produced under lockdown conditions, the group present sixteen never before heard alternate versions, unreleased curios and long-forgotten oddities.

Includes an eight-minute concentrate of the legendary “Rusty Coathangers For The Doctor” tape, plus a demo and alternate rendering of the classic “Satisfction” single.

Part of the ongoing pREServed reissue series, Leftovers Again?!? is, we are told, a small taste of further album-by-album multitrack explorations the group intend to present at some as-yet undisclosed point in the future.

This recording features a full performance by great musicians at their peak, providing a "you are there" experience of the excitement of great music and an appreciative crowd. Mastered from the original tape reels by Kevin Gray, the limited-edition 180g 3LP set includes an extensive booklet with rare photos, plus interviews with Carlos Garnett and Cecil McBee. Award-winning arts journalist and critic Mark Stryker contributes the main essay alongside remembrances by American journalist, educator, author, activist and friend of Roy Brooks Herb Boyd, alto saxophone legend Charles McPherson (who grew up with Roy Brooks), Louis Hayes (who got Roy the gig with Horace Silver) and more. The project came about as a desire by Reel to Real Recordings to make a positive contribution to Black Lives Matter. Understanding is our celebration of the talent, courage and spirit of the Black musicians who created a timeless and universal art, with the recognition that the injustices of 50 years ago are still with us. Proceeds will go directly to The Detroit Sound Conservancy. The album is produced with the cooperation of Cecil McBee and Carlos Garnett and the estates of Roy Brooks, Harold Mabern and Woody Shaw.

About the artist: In his younger days in Detroit, Brooks started off drumming with Yusef Lateef. He played with Horace Silver from 1959-64, including on the album Song for My Father; in 1963 he released his first album as a leader. Following this he freelanced in New York City through the 1960s and early 1970s, playing with Lateef again (1967-70), Sonny Stitt, Lee Morgan, Dexter Gordon, Chet Baker, Junior Cook, Blue Mitchell, Charles McPherson, Pharoah Sanders (1970), Wes Montgomery, Dollar Brand, Jackie McLean, James Moody (1970-72), Charles Mingus (1972-73), and Milt Jackson. His 1970 album The Free Slave featured Cecil McBee and Woody Shaw. Later in 1970 he joined Max Roach's ensemble M'Boom, and in 1972 put together the ensemble The Artistic Truth.

Tracks include “The Feeling Of Love" - a boogie number that features a tremolo guitar, an exotic steel guitar, and a robotic voice with a light mid-tempo beat, with lyrics depicting the everyday life within the extraordinary situation. "Obscure Nightclub" is a ballad with a bottom heavy beat, a steel guitar, a clear flute sound, and an insect-voiced chorus. While portraying the scene of a nightclub, he sings about his feelings under the pandemic. The B-side features “By Swallow Season” - a mid-tempo jazzy boogie track, with sentimental lyrics over a floating mellow wah-wah guitar and melancholy saxophone. "How many years does it take to return to normal~", Sakamoto sings, reflecting on the situation. The EP ends with "Don't Tinker With History", a boogie-funk song which opens with a James Brown-like guitar riff. An ultimate soul classic in contemporary Japan, the echoey steel guitar and the dry strumming blends in with the tight groove, along with his straightforward lyrics like "People and events that were pretended it didn't exist".
