This newly compiled collection of recordings from rockabilly pioneer Charlie Feathers showcases the influential Memphis performer’s work at Sun Records (and related labels). Feathers started his musical career as a session musician at Sun Studios under Sam Phillips. His theatrical, hiccupping vocal style inspired a later generation of rock vocalists, including Lux Interior of The Cramps and Tav Falco, who contributed extensive liner notes and photos for the insert of this release. The vinyl was pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.
FITTED is a new project from Wire members Graham Lewis and Matthew Simms, with Mike Watt (Minutemen, Stooges, fIREHOSE) and drummer Bob Lee (Fearless Leader, The Freeks). The group first convened after just one practice to perform at Wire’s DRILL festival in 2017 at The Echo in Los Angeles. On their debut album, First Fits, the freewheelin' pysch-pop powerhouse plows through six numbers over the course of 38 minutes, with Lewis and Watt trading lead vocal duties. The album will be available on LP, CD, and digital formats beginning November 8th.
The vinyl release features a deluxe package with a gatefold jacket and lyric insert.
Perhaps one of the most important blues recordings of all time, Frank Frost's Hey Boss Man! has long been a "white whale" for many record collectors. The album is one of the last blues records to be producded by the legendary Sam Phillips. Frost and his Mississippi cohorts Jack Johnson and Sam Carr played Southern juke joint blues, rough & ready in the classic mold, with plenty of dynamic interplay and nasty, lowdown grooves. This limited edition red color vinyl reissue marks the first US vinyl release since the original pressing in 1962!

Vinyl LP pressing. Reissue. Throughout a 50 year recording career, Glenn Copeland's music has defied categorization and genre. He is delighted to announce the forthcoming re-issue of his extraordinary but little-known album, Primal Prayer. Primal Prayer was originally self-released in 2004 under the nom de plume Phynix to a small but appreciative audience. The tracks are a rhythmically complex and wildly creative fusion of jazz, world, dance and classical genres.
180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon was in peak form when recording at Copenhagen's Legendary Jazzhus Montmartre in 1967. A portion of that recording would later become Body & Soul, an album originally released by Black Lion Records, which has been out of press on vinyl for almost three decades. Now, just shy of fifty years after the performance was recorded, the album finally receives the audiophile treatment it deserves with this 180gram vinyl reissue, pressed at Pallas in Germany.
Dexter Gordon recorded dozens of albums and played hundreds of live shows, but none better than what's captured on this 1967 date at Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen. Both Sides of Midnight marks Gordon's peak live recorded document, and a can't-miss opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts to get closer to the man and his music. The album was mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed on 180gram audiophile-
During a two day period (July 20-21, 1967) tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon and his quartet recorded multiple albums worth of material at one of Gordon's favorite venues, the legendary Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen.

This record, Walk The Blues, is pulled from the second night of recording, and finds Dexter in an expansive, relaxed mood in front of an appreciative audience. These brilliant recordings will now make their vinyl debut on this 180g audiophile-grade LP, pressed at Pallas in Germany. This limited edition color vinyl pressing is available exclusively for Record Store Day 2017.

Teamed up with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath for a club date at Copenhagen's Montmartre in 1967, the great tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin really stretches out on four numbers: "The Man I Love," "Hush-A-Bye," "Blues for Harvey" and a memorable version of "The Masquerade Is Over." Griffin shows why he was early on billed as "the world's fastest tenor" although he also displays warmth on "Sophisticated Lady." A fine example of Griffin's underrated talents. The album was remastered for vinyl from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman, and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany.
Recorded live in Switzerland at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1974, Perugia exemplifies the incredible expertise of American jazz pianist, Roland Hanna. An audible thunderous applause after jazz standards such as ‘Take The A Train’ and ‘A Child Is Born’ truly brings the stunning solo performance to life. Hanna’s breathy solos and warm scales in the title track ‘Perugia,’ make it clear the pianist is in a class of his own. The brilliant recording has been remastered for vinyl at Infrasonic Mastering, and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany.
The Giver is the fifth album from David Hillyard & The Rocksteady 7, following Hillyard’s 2014 solo album, California.

Vinyl LP pressing. "Twelve days after Louis Armstrong died, his old friend Earl Hines recorded a solo tribute to the great trumpeter/vocalist. This album, one of three that Hines recorded in a two-day period, features eight songs associated with Satch including "Struttin' with Some Barbeque," "A Kiss to Build a Dream On," "Someday You'll Be Sorry" and two versions of Armstrong's theme "When It's Sleepy Time Down South." This set should be of particular interest to Earl Hines collectors for the pianist rarely performed most of these songs, and he gives fresh heartfelt renditions to the standards" (ORG Music / AMG). Available on vinyl for the first time in decades, the historic recordings were remastered for the format at Infrasonic Mastering and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.
Here Swings The Judge is Milt Hinton’s first LP as a band leader, and includes intimate, private recordings featuring Ben Webster on tenor saxophone before his departure to Europe in 1964. The remaining tracks consist of dynamic studio recordings produced by Harry Lim, and feature prominent players such as Jon Faddis and Budd Johnson. These sessions range from the swinging “Blue Skies,’ to the slow, serene blues of “Blues for the Judge.” This is truly an impressive collection of recordings from the group of early jazz musicians.
Recorded live at Slim’s in San Francisco, Mindfulness is the brilliant soundscape created by drummer William Hooker, along with Glenn Spearman on tenor saxophone and DJ Olive. The five Hooker compositions flow into each other, one after another, seamlessly, as if to take the listener on a musical voyage through time and space. The layers of vibrant sound, accompanied by trashing drums and shrieking sax show the incredible ability of each musician to take their instrumental vocabulary to a new level. The album receives its first ever vinyl release with this color pressing, exclusively for Record Store Day 2019.

William Hooker has been recognized as one of the most innovative musicians and drummers of his generation, leading a variety of ensembles within the worlds of free jazz, experimental, and new music. Hooker’s prior collaborators range from avant garde jazz musicians to indie rock legends like Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. On his latest work, “Symphonie of Flowers”, Hooker weaves three sections into a whole, or a “symphonie” of sorts. As he says, “the piece begins and ends with the drum…my instrument. Its rhythm and variations of timbre are the stabilizing element.”
Never before been pressed to vinyl, Shirley Horn’s Softly is reflective of the album’s late night recording sessions at Peirre Sprey’s home recording studio in rural Maryland, aptly named Mapleshade Studio. The 1988 release is commonly referred to as one of Horn’s most introspective and emotionally intensive records to date. With her sidemen Charles Ables (bass) and Steve Williams (percussion) gathered into a quaint, pastoral living room full of recording equipment, the trio plowed through the tunes, tracking almost until dawn. The album was remastered for vinyl at Infrasonic Mastering and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany.
This long awaited release presents over a dozen previously unissued masters of surprisingly high quality from the premier artist on the American Music label, Bunk Johnson. Digital technology made it possible to remove the reasons - often not musical - that they were not issued at the time, seventy years ago. The venues for the recording sessions varied between the legendary 1944 sound of the San Jacinto Hall to the homes of Bertha Gonsoulin in San Francisco and George Lewis in New Orleans. The album receives its first ever vinyl pressing, spread across two LPs, for Record Store Day 2018. The recording were remastered for vinyl at Infrasonic Mastering and pressed at Pallas in Germany on color vinyl.
