Foolish Seasons [RSD 2022]

ON SALE $25.98 Vinyl: $24.88 Buy

Dana Gillespie’s debut album, Foolish Seasons, is one of the great lost albums of 1960’s British pop. This very rare and sought-after 1968 album from the legendary British singer/songwriter was only released in the U.S. and over the years its reputation among collectors has only grown. Although it never came out in England, Decca Records kept the masters to the intended U.K. pressing which is now being released on vinyl. It contains two previously unreleased, self-penned tracks – the blue-eyed soul bop “Goin’ Round in Circles” and the orchestral “Come to My Arms” which could almost have been a Bond theme.

Side A:
1. You Just Gotta Know My Mind
2. Tears In My Eyes
3. Life Is Short
4. Souvenirs Of Stefan
5. Can't You See I'm Dreaming

HIGH-DEFINITION PREMIUM VINYL PRESSING FOR SUPER FIDELITY INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS! This essential LP edition presents one of Hopkins' finest albums, "Mojo Hand", which was originally issued in 1962 on Bobby Robinson's label, Fire Records. (The LP would be retitled Lightnin' Hopkins just two years later for the Sphere Sounds imprint re-release, featuring a different cover-sleeve.) Mojo Hand is widely regarded as one of the true masterpieces from Hopkins' catalog. The material ranges from classic blues to R&B-flavored numbers. There's even a charming novelty Christmas blues, titled "Santa." These are moody and powerful performances. Despite the variety, the album is remarkably cohesive because Hopkins' amalgamation of styles can be heard within each song.

Drummer, composer, and producer Tom Skinner who is the drummer for The Smile and Sons of Kemet releases his new album, Voices of Bishara, on November 4, 2022, via Brownswood / International Anthem / Nonesuch. The first recording under Skinner’s own name is a reference to an album he listened to repeatedly during the COVID-19 lockdown: cellist Abdul Wadud’s 1978 solo album By Myself, which was privately pressed on Wadud’s label, Bishara. The common Arabic name has the intention or meaning of “good news” or “the bringer of good news.”  Voices of Bishara began life when Tom Skinner asked some musician friends to join him for a Played Twice session at London’s Brilliant Corners. These regular sessions had a simple format: play a classic album in full through the venue’s audiophile system and then have a live ensemble improvise a response. The night in question focused on drummer Tony Williams’ 1964 Blue Note album, Life Time, and the music conjured that night inspired Skinner to write an album’s worth of new music.  Skinner recorded an album of that music with a cellist, bass, and two saxophonists subsequently putting it aside, occasionally bringing it out for some attention in between his many other creative projects. Gradually, the record began to take shape as he embraced the studio recordings and accentuated their idiosyncrasies.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2014 180 gram audiophile vinyl pressing reissue. First pressing of 1500 worldwide numbered copies are pressed on white vinyl. Briefcase Full of Blues is the debut album by The Blues Brothers, originally released in 1978. The Blues Brothers, more formally called The Blues Brothers' Show Band and Revue, began as an affectionate comedic tribute to R&B music featuring comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live. Belushi (lead vocalist "Joliet Jake" Blues) and Aykroyd (harmonica player/backing vocalist Elwood Blues) fronted a band which was composed of well-known and respected session musicians. Soon after three SNL performances, the band began to take on a life beyond television, releasing an album, Briefcase Full of Blues, and then having the Hollywood film The Blues Brothers created around it's characters in 1980. The track listing of Briefcase Full of Blues boasts infectious covers of songs by Otis Redding, Junior Wells, King Floyd, Sam & Dave and Big Joe Turner, amongst others. Backing up Jake & Elwood are Stax heroes Donald - Duck- Dunn and Steve Cropper, Paul Shaffer and other seasoned session men. The album reached #1 on the Billboard 200 and went double Platinum. Two singles were released, "Rubber Biscuit", which reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 and "Soul Man", which reached number 14.

It is tempting to play up the "Italian Connection" on Joey's newest record. With Joey's previous nod toward the Goodfellas it would easy to claim that Frank Sinatra is the natural next step. But the simple fact of the matter is that this is tribute of one master of American Music to another. Perhaps no other singer in history defined the American Popular Songbook as Frank Sinatra and it is only natural that Joey DeFrancesco ? so instrumental in defining the new B-3 sound ? would turn to wealth of exceptional material from the Sinatra discography. Great music is great music and Joey knows it and has surrounded himself with great sidemen. The great Houston Person on tenor sax is on hand as is groove master guitarist Melvin Sparks and Joey's drummer of choice, Byron Landham. Together they swing through six tunes recorded by Sinatra and, while far from mimicking the original arrangements, they pay tribute to the legacy of Sinatra, refracted through the prism of their own talent and imagination.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2020 release. Stand Up! It's not just an album title, it's an order, forcing anyone who hears Whitney Shay's brand of rocket-fueled R&B onto the dancefloor. A flame-haired stick of dynamite in a sparkling dress, this San Diego phenomenon has made a record for dancing, drinking and dreaming, with songs to soundtrack the peaks and punches of life. Stand Up! Is sure to mark the global explosion of a singer-songwriter who's long been threatening to go 'boom'.

Coming up the old-fashioned way - with a thousand word-of-mouth shows blazing her reputation across the planet - Shay's first decade has seen four wins at the San Diego Music Awards, a nomination at last year's prestigious Blues Music Awards and the tag of "future blues icon" bestowed by Blues Matters! #magazine. Whether you picked up 2012's debut album, Soul Tonic, caught up with her on 2018's acclaimed A Woman Rules The World - or heard her songs on major TV networks including HBO and NBC - you're probably already a fan, whether you realise it or not. But having signed to Ruf last year, Shay is set to paint the world red in 2020.

Tracking at Austin's Wire Recording Studio with producer Kaz Kazanoff, Stand Up! #saw the singer let the good vibes flow. Setting the pace with the title track's brassy soul and smoky quickfire vocal, this new record's upbeat moments twist from the rolling groove of Tell The Truth to the dirtied-up funk of P.S. It's Not About You, with Shay's all-star studio band rising to the occasion.

Bob James, the Grammy Award-winning jazz keyboardist, arranger, record producer, record executive, and founding member of Fourplay, returns with Espresso, his first solo-led project in 12 years. Album tunes, penned by James, reflect the same inventiveness and musical fluency that persuaded Quincy Jones to become his mentor and champion back in 1963. His expressiveness through both writing and performance permeates the rocking minor-key blues of "Bulgogi," the definitive cool jazz of "Topside," the funk strut of "Submarine," the whispered beauty of "Promenade," the turbulent, more complex yet supremely listenable "Mojito Ride" and every other moment on Espresso.

Despite its confrontative title, “Kiss My Axe” is a sombre album, reflective of the mature artist Al Di Meola had become at the time. First released in February 1992, the album is a brilliant showcase of his impeccable technique yet doesn’t overwhelm listeners with it. Di Meola uses his guitar skills rather subtly, enchanting the listeners and inviting them into this album filled to the brim with Latin influences and World Music elements, ranging from Middle Eastern harmonies to African grooves. The result is an immaculately arranged and passionately performed album that is widely regarded as one of the highlights in Al Di Meola’s decades-spanning year career.
