Alphaville

RSD Exclusive Aug


Special unreleased new mix for Record Store Day 2020 created by original band members Marian Gold and Bernhardt Lloyd together with Blank & Jones. For the first time since he left Alphaville in 2003, Bernhard worked with Marian in the studio and they used only original parts from the 1984 multi track tapes, no additional instruments. Blank & Jones work closely with the band since 2013 on various projects like "so8os (so eighties) Reconstructions pres. Alphaville“ and the "Forever Young - Super Deluxe Edition".

The name "Grant & Kelly Remix“results from a line in the second verse of the song: "….Like the Cary Grants and Kellys once before…“. This limited edition also features a special long version on the B-side.

Side A – “Sounds Like A Melody (Grant & Kelly Remix)”
Side B – “Sounds Like A Melody (Grant & Kelly Reimix-Extended Version)”

Marion Brown

RSD Exclusive Aug


Altoist Marion Brown is perhaps best known for performances on albums by his contemporaries, such as Coltrane's Ascension, but Brown stands on his own as one of the most creative and important forces to come out of the 1960s avant-garde jazz movement. Porto Novo is widely regarded as one of Brown's best recordings, captured during a 1967 session in Holland at the peak of his creative powers, accompanied by bassist Maarten van Regteben Altena and drummer Han Bennink. Previously out of print for decades, the recording has now been remastered for a long-overdue reissue on audiophile-grade vinyl, exclusively for Record Store Day 2020.

Penderecki/Don Cherry & The New Eternal Rhythm

RSD Exclusive Aug


Recorded live at the Donaueschingen Music Festival on October 17, 1971, Actions features a truly mind-bending confluence of musicians of the avant-garde, in the broadest sense of the term. Don Cherry -- the brilliant American free jazz trumpeter -- had recently expatriated to Sweden and was finding his way not only among the emerging free-jazz scene of Europe but also within his own constantly expanding musical palette that had begun to incorporate elements of African rhythms, Turkish folk idioms, and Indian classical music. Cherry, in collaboration here with Krzysztof Penderecki -- one of Poland's greatest modern composers, who is perhaps best known to casual audiences for the use of his music in The Exorcist (1973), The Shining (1980), and more recently, the third season of David Lynch's Twin Peaks -- creates a sonic landscape previously unrivaled in his work. Combining modern classical and avant-garde elements, choral arrangements, and a large free jazz ensemble -- The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra, formed specifically for this performance and featuring a veritable who's who of the European scene including Peter Brötzmann, Han Bennink, Terje Rypdal, Albert Mangelsdorff, and Gunter Hampel -- Actions is one of the most expansive sets of Cherry's storied career. Limited edition of 1,000 copies on translucent red vinyl.

01. Humus – “The Life Exploring Force” 02. “Sita Rama Encores” 03. “Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra”

Vital document of one of the first bands to put serious cracks in rock's glass ceiling!

Never able to fit the mold that label executives demanded, at the very end of 1969 the Quatro sisters' Pleasure Seekers became Cradle. Though "the suits" weren't ready for them, their forward-thinking sound and quintessentially Detroit determination blazed a trail for the decades of hard-rocking women who followed -- as did their choice to remain true to themselves, no matter what. Pressed on double purple vinyl.

'All These Perfect Crosses is a collection of songs that came from the sessions for Faith In The Future, We All Want The Same Things, and I Need A New War. For Craig, these three records are one body of work, and the songs on this collection are pieces of that larger narrative. For various reasons, these songs didn't appear on the records they were recorded for, but they still tell a part of the same story: modern people trying to make it through, to keep their heads above water, to live past their mistakes, to survive.

Kelly Finnigan

RSD Exclusive Aug


Kelly Finnigan’s debut solo album for Colemine Records represents the culmination of his 15 years of experience - in the studio as a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, engineer, producer - and touring the US and Europe as a singer, musician, and band-leader. The content reflects his dedication to expression through the rich American music traditions of soul, gospel, doo-wop, and R&B. The subject is love. Its ecstasies and heartaches. Love sought, found, betrayed, lost, and rediscovered. The result is a marvelous collection of songs and performances that run the gamut from whispering tenderness to roaring appeals; from lean and mean to lush and lovely. And always…always, manifestly honest, and undeniably soulful. With Finnigan guiding these songs from their conception all the way to the record pressing plant, the new release provides the singular voice missing from soul music: a visionary that writes, records, performs and produces his own material.

Colemine Records is proud to present the instrumental version of The Tales People Tell, showcasing Kelly's superior production and arrangement talents.

1. “I Don't Wanna Wait” 2. “I'll Never Love Again” 3. “Smoking & Drinking” 4. “Every Time It Rains” 5. “Catch Me I'm Falling” 6. “Since I Don't Have You Anymore” 7. “Impressions Of You”
8. “I Called You Back Baby” 9. “Freedom” 10. “Can't Let Him Down”

Philip Glass

RSD Exclusive Aug


Through his operas, his symphonies, his compositions for his own ensemble, and his wide-ranging collaborations with artists ranging from Twyla Tharp to Allen Ginsberg, Woody Allen to David Bowie, Philip Glass has had an extraordinary and unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times. The operas - ''Einstein on the Beach,'' ''Satyagraha,'' and ''Akhnaten,'' among many others - play throughout the world's leading houses, and rarely to an empty seat. Glass has written music for experimental theater and for Academy Award-winning motion pictures. Glass is the first composer to win a wide, multi-generational audience in the opera house, the concert hall, the dance world, in film and in popular music - simultaneously. Much of his early work was based on the extended reiteration of brief, elegant melodic fragments that wove in and out of an aural tapestry. Or, to put it another way, it immersed a listener in a sort of sonic weather that twists, turns, surrounds, develops.

In the past 25 years, Glass has composed more than twenty-five operas, large and small; twelve symphonies; three piano concertos and concertos for violin, piano, timpani, and saxophone quartet and orchestra; soundtracks to films ranging from new scores for the stylized classics of Jean Cocteau to Errol Morris's documentary about former defense secretary Robert McNamara; string quartets; a growing body of work for solo piano and organ.

Available on vinyl for the first time as a limited and numbered edition of 1,500 copies. The package includes an 8-page booklet and info on the Philip Glass series on Music On Vinyl, coming in 2020 / 2021.

John Wesley Harding

RSD 'First' Aug


In May 2002, Disney pulled the plug on Mammoth Records just weeks before the June 25th release date of John Wesley Harding's The Man with No Shadow. No more than 300 hundred journalists received advance CDs of Harding's new record, while only a handful of radio stations received the single "Negative Love'. No other physical copies existed. Over the years those advance CDs have fetched untold hundreds of dollars from an eager fan base in search of Wes' great 'lost" album. Though many - but not all - of the songs ended up on 2004's Adam's Apple (DRT Records), which All Music Guide called 'the finest album of his career', those that did make the cut were in a jumbled running order. The album has never previously been released on vinyl. The Man With No Shadow First Edition restores the album to Wes's original vision. The audio has been remastered from the original tapes, and the package includes cover art from the original sessions and extensive liner notes. The CD package includes the original album plus a bonus unheard band demos and studio outtakes, all previously unreleased.

June Of 44

RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Aug


Originally released in 1996, June of 44’s second album is a long nautical mile from their debut, 1995’s Engine Takes To The Water. Recorded at Chicago Recording Studio and Idful Recording and produced by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma), Tropics and Meridians is a collection of rhythmic phrases meant to be perfumed of whatever the listener would like them to be. The music veers from the subtly lilting and melodic to the fierce and abrasive, often with the space of a few bars. Rollicking on the high seas, but then slowing down to float on a glass-like waterbed, the band bring us their unique brand of the quiet storm, set to music of course.
