Sailors’ Tales

With much of the material from In The Wake Of Poseidon, Lizard and Islands now being performed by the current King Crimson line-up (2014 - ), it is only in recent years that the wider world has begun to realise what fans have always known: this era’s recordings are as vital as any other segment of the King Crimson catalogue.

Recorded between the dazzling impact of In The Court Of The Crimson in 1969 and the startling reinvention of the band in 1973’s Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, this boxed set documents a crucial period in King Crimson’s history and shows it to be brimming with innovation, experimentation, and boundary-pushing energy.

With a wealth of previously unheard studio recordings from band rehearsals to full alternate mixes and a vast array of live material, much of it on CD/Blu-Ray for the first time and including four recently found, never before released concerts, this set presents the complete King Crimson recorded history of the period in the best quality audio possible.

• The complete 1970-72 King Crimson boxed set: 21CDS/4Blu-Rays/2DVD – all audio.

• 3CDs feature Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp stereo mixes of In The Wake Of Poseidon (1970), Lizard (1970) & Islands (1971) + additional tracks.

• 6CDs feature the Islands line-ups early concerts from Germany (new to CD) & the UK (1971).

• 9CDs feature live recordings (several new to CD and/or previously unreleased in any format) from the 1972 US tour, including a new stereo mix of Summit Studios & an expanded Earthbound.

• 3CDs feature auditions for the Islands band & two further, as yet, unidentified concerts from 1972 (all previously unreleased)

• 3 Blu-Ray discs contain the main studio albums in 5.1 Surround Sound & recent stereo editions mixed by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp + 30th anniversary masters of the original stereo albums mixes (all in 24/96 hi-res), plus extensive additional material with each disc also featuring a complete alternate album + a further selection of additional, related studio/live material in hi-res.

Lizard Blu-Ray: also contains the audition material from CDs19/20

Islands Blu-Ray: also contains the following concerts in stereo Zoom Club (4 shows), Marquee Club, Plymouth, Glasgow, Detroit all from 1971.

• Earthbound Tour: Blu-Ray features an expanded version of the original album, Summit Studios gig in Stereo & Quadraphonic (newly mixed), the Schizoid Men sequence from the Ladies of the Road album, 2 newly discovered concerts in hi-res stereo & every existing soundboard concert recording from the 1972 US tour: Wilmington, NYC (2 shows), Chicago (2 tracks only), Detroit, Jacksonville, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Peoria, Indianapolis & Denver (2 shows).

• 2 DVDs feature the expanded Earthbound, Summit Studios, Schizoid Men, New York 1972 & the recently discovered live concerts.

• 12” box with booklet, memorabilia, a further downloadable concert, new sleeve-notes by Sid Smith, Jakko Jakszyk & David Singleton

Blancmange - Unfurnished Rooms


Album Release Date: 29/09/2017


Blancmange's new album was written and recorded by Neil Arthur and co-produced by Benge (Wrangler/John Foxx & The Maths and Gazelle Twin co-producer). It’s been a fantastically creative period for both of them, releasing their debut album as a new electronic duo – Fader’s First Light - in June 2017 and then the final sessions for Unfurnished Rooms followed immediately in the summer.

For the new Blancmange record, all the songs were written by Arthur while Benge added percussion and layers of analogue synth, with the pair then mixing the record together in the latter’s Memetune studios in Cornwall. 'Don't Get Me Wrong' features John Grant on piano and backing vocals.

Calexico - The Thread That Keeps Us

Pre-order drive just kicked off for January 26, 2018 release. Regular and deluxe versions of both CD and vinyl, shirts, postcards, calendar, and more.

"The ninth studio album from Calexico, The Thread That Keeps Us is a timely snapshot of the Arizona-bred band: a family portrait capturing their stylistic variety and unpredictability while still finding solace in limitless creativity. In bringing the album to life, vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino found a spiritual home in unusual surroundings—not in Arizona, but on the Northern California coast in a home-turned-studio called the Panoramic House. Built from debris and shipyard-salvaged timber—and dubbed “The Phantom Ship” by the band—the grandiose house and its edge-of-the-world-like ambience soon made their way into the songs. The specter of California also had a powerful effect: as both dream state and nightmare, its infinite duality is mirrored in the music, giving Calexico a new direction and new edge. With less polish and more grit than ever before, The Thread That Keeps Us both honors enduring traditions and reveals Calexico’s confidence in songwriting, ultimately setting a whole new standard for the band."

Belly working on a new album

In late 2015, twenty years after last playing together, we decided it was ‘now or never’ and announced Belly would reunite for a limited tour in 2016. Falling right back into a laughter-fueled groove as we began rehearsing for the tour, we thought, why not make it interesting and try writing a couple of new tunes together? Those of you who saw one (or several) of the reunion-tour shows last year heard two new songs live… and you were part of some truly amazing evenings that wildly exceeded our expectations. Along with great joy, ridiculous grins, and a few (happy) tears, there was just an incredible energy and excitement in every place, every night we played. A kind of energy and excitement that really had nowhere to go but into making more music together.

And so that’s what we’ve been doing. Since last year’s shows, another nine new songs have sprung forth. “NameTBD” will be Belly’s third record, scheduled for release on release date TBD. We’ve recorded most of the ‘basic’ tracks at Stable Sound Studio in Rhode Island with our old friend Paul Q. Kolderie at the board, and now we’re in the process of recording guitars, vocals and various other overdubs. Needless to say, making a record today is very different from the last time Belly recorded together. And so are the mechanisms of sharing music with our friends and the rest of the world.

We’re so very excited about this record, and we’re pleased to partner with Pledge Music as one of the ways to share it and let you all be apart of it. You can advance-order NameTBD on vinyl, CD, or as a digital download, as well as find a variety of “bundles” and exclusive limited-edition goodies. All advance orders through Pledge give you member-only access to updates, peeks into the studio, and a soon to be released digital download of our cover of “Hush-a-Bye Mountain,” which we recorded just for fun while in the studio.

We hope you’ll come along with us as we work on finishing up NameTBD, and we really look forward to sharing these new songs (and plenty of the old ones, too!) with you live in 2018!

A portion of all profits will go towards hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

I saw her live on Tuesday in London. The performance is Twin Peaks meets Anne Summers, lots of oddness, long curtains and fetish gear. Just Annie her guitars (a different colour for nearly every track - but, unlike Bill, all her own signature model) and specially pre-recorded backing. I missed the live band but the performance and backdrop videos were striking. First part of the show is a selection from her back-catalogue and the second part is the new album in full.

Blue Note Records introduces Blue Note Review: Volume One - Peace, Love & Fishing, the inaugural edition of a stunning new biannual, limited edition, luxury boxset subscription series that encapsulates the storied past and auspicious future of the legendary jazz label. The beautifully curated collector's item is a limited production of 1,500 sets, and is available to order today for $200 exclusively at bluenotereview.com. Watch an unboxing video of the Blue Note Review.

The foundation of each Blue Note Review is and will remain the music: The Finest In Jazz Since 1939. Each set will contain a collection of new recordings from Blue Note’s current roster plus a timeless treasure from the Blue Note vaults, representing the unique continuum of jazz, a music where innovation is always built upon what’s come before, yet a restlessly creative artform with improvisation and reinvention at its core. And so, bucking the digital trend in music, the Blue Note Review aims to provide the ultimate jazz experience, a physical extension of the enduringly hip Blue Note aesthetic to adorn the ears, eyes, mind, and neck. The new music within will only be available in the Review, it won’t be found on streaming services or digital download sites, and none of the items contained in the set will be sold separately.

“The digital transformation of the music business has made great strides in terms of convenience, but we’ve lost so much along the way,” explains Blue Note President Don Was, who conceived of the Blue Note Review and serves as it’s Publisher. “For so many of us, Blue Note has always represented a particular sensibility and a culture of cool. Blue Note Review is our great effort to restore some of that culture, and to re-create that tangible, multi-sensory experience. This has been a labor of love for everyone involved, and we couldn’t be more proud to introduce the Blue Note Review to jazz lovers worldwide.”

Included in Blue Note Review: Volume One - Peace, Love & Fishing are:

    A 2-LP, 180g vinyl double album (2-CD set also included) of new & previously unreleased recordings by current Blue Note artists including Wayne Shorter Quartet, Charles Lloyd & The Marvels, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Gregory Porter, Kandace Springs, Terence Blanchard, Derrick Hodge, and Blue Note All-Stars featuring Ambrose Akinmusire, Robert Glasper, Derrick Hodge, Lionel Loueke, Kendrick Scott, and Marcus Strickland.

    A 180g vinyl reissue of the previously out-of-print rare classic catalog album Step Lightly by trumpeter Blue Mitchell, recorded in 1963 with Joe Henderson, Leo Wright, Herbie Hancock, Gene Taylor, and Roy Brooks, and featuring liner notes by Michael Cuscuna.

    Two never-before-released Francis Wolff 12x12 lithographs of Wayne Shorter and Stanley Turrentine.

    An exclusive John Varvatos-designed Blue Note scarf.

    A “Jazz Is Not A Crime” turntable mat conceived by Ryan Adams.

    A lifestyle zine featuring a fascinating collection of articles and musings including: a foreword by spiritual teacher and author Ram Dass, a poem by Jack Grapes, a conversation between Wayne Shorter and actor/comedian/jazz fanatic Jeff Garlin, an eloquent elegy for the late drummer Billy Higgins written by Charles Lloyd, and a true-to-life comic drawn by Keith Henry Brown about an encounter between Stanley Turrentine and Blue Note founder Alfred Lion as told in the words of Bobby Hutcherson.

Quote:
Friday Music is no stranger to the stunning recordings of Todd Rundgren and Utopia. Therefore, it is with much excitement to announce the blockbuster seven compact disc box extravaganza The Road to Utopia: The Complete Recordings (1974-82). Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Todd Rundgren, Hall & Oates) at Friday Music Studios from the Bearsville/Warner Bros. tapes, each of their seven classic albums truly come to life in this new limited edition package. In honor of the upcoming reunion tour, we are offering for a very limited time each of their seven albums now in first time cd digipak gatefold covers, featuring the original album artwork elements, including rare inner sleeve art, label art, insert artwork, all housed in a handsome cd box. The amazing collection will also include 2018 written commentary from Utopia's Todd Rundgren, Willie Wilcox, Kasim Sulton and Roger Powell. To enhance your musical enjoyment, The Road to Utopia: The Complete Recordings (1974-82) will also include 15 rare bonus tracks, culled from the vaults including live tracks, b side, radio promo versions and of course the five-star mastering you would expect from Friday Music. We believe this wonderful new audiophile compact disc release of The Road to Utopia: The Complete Recordings (1974-82) will become one of the most anticipated releases of the year!
