Title:
Scandal In A Brixton Market
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (B28) $28.98 

As the sixties came to a close, Laurel Aitken was firmly established as Britian's favourite Jamaican performer, enormously popular with members of both the country's West Indian ex-pat communities and its rapidly growing Reggae-loving Skinhead population. Unsurprisingly, competition to gain rights to his works among the country's leading Jamaican music companies was fierce and often bitter, so when, early in 69, Pama Records acquired his signature, the achievement was rightly regarded as a major coup by the London-based operation. Over the weeks that immediately followed, Laurel duly provided Pama with a number of best-selling singles, and while single artist compilations by Jamaican artists were still considered a rarity, such was the demand for the singer's music the company wasted little time in issuing a long-playing collection: Scandal In Brixton Market. Featuring a handful of previously released sides along with seven recordings exclusive to the collection, the LP also featured guest appearances from two of the UK's most popular Jamaican acts, Girlie and celebrated trombonist, Rico Rodriquez. A must-have collection for all Reggae fans, Scandal In Brixton Market quickly sold out at stores the length and breadth of the country, and over the years that have followed it has become increasingly scarce. It is therefore with great pleasure that some 45+ years after its original release, Radiation Reissues is able to present it again on vinyl.

Umbra
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

“Umbra” is a recording of ARC’s headline performance at the E-Live festival in Oirschot, the Netherlands on 19th October 2013. The set constantly evolves in an organic fashion from the traditional sequencing grooves of the opening track “Arcadia” through to the powerhouse encore track “Cherry Bomb”. The second piece, “Proximo Obscuro", hearkens back to the classic, simple grooves of early Berlin School sequencing. “Umbra” & “Panthera" have a darker, more gothic feel and bookend the more delicate sequencing of “Autostratus". This is only the fifth concert ARC have performed and as such “Umbra” provides a wonderful opportunity to hear what these two experienced musicians sound like in a live performance.

Title:
Church
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

ARC are Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve, two veterans of the UK electronic music scene. Their music is deeply routed in the traditions of the German synthesizer music of the 1970's and as such they employ a vast range of vintage analogue equipment not the least of which is Shreeve's massive Moog modular system. “Church” is a recording of their performance at St.Mary's Church in Philadelphia on 14th November 2009 as part of the Gatherings concert series and was a suitably atmospheric venue for the electronic music of ARC. The five long tracks span the range of structured melodic sections, classically inspired space chords to improvised sequencer workouts and prove once again that Shreeve and Boddy are masters of this form of electronic music.

Title:
Fracture
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

Ian Boddy & Mark Shreeve have been at the center of the UK Electronic Music scene since the late seventies. "Fracture" is ARC's fifth album release and their fourth on the DiN label. It features their fabled retro style sequencing, courtesy of Shreeve's giant Moog modular system, coupled with a heady mix of quirky melodic lines and spacey atmospheres. The album is wholly instrumental and the first four tracks constantly morph and evolve with a set of chilled out grooves and sublime melodic themes. The fifth track, "Rapture" is an epic in every sense. Nearly 23 minutes in length it features a central, pounding sequencer riff section cocooned within truly awe inspiring deep space ambiance for a truly memorable track.

Black Horses Of The Sun
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

“Black Horses Of The Sun” is the latest release from Dave Bessell (a member of Node). These new tracks build on the distinctive detailed atmospheric style of previous releases and add a more melodic focus that gives the proceedings an extra layer of interest this time around. The atmospheres range from mysterious to darkly foreboding with occasional more relaxed flashes of ambient sunlight. Overall there is often a widescreen cinematic sense of scale which would not be out of place in a film soundtrack. Overall a varied and intriguing release which never falls into the predictable patterns of analogue electronica, combining masterful evocative sound design with intricate arrangements, this will repay repeated listenings and is not to be missed.

Live In France 1959
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: DV
List Price: (A9) $9.98 

Art Blakey took the band to Europe before there was time to develop a new band book, so here we get to hear Shorter's unique spin on Golson's Along Came Betty and Blues March and the former Mobley feature Close Your Eyes before they disappeared from the Messengers' repertoire. We also get a glimpse of where things are headed with Lee Morgan's What Know (aka Goldie) and an early Shorter composition that Blakey never officially recorded Nelly Bly (aka Mama G). Shorter and Morgan are absolutely on fire throughout this 80-minute concert. NTSC all region.

As Above So Below
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (A25) $25.98 

Boddy has always liked to play around with genres & on “As Above So Below” he effortlessly combines ambient, classical & electronic music into a seamless, intoxicating sonic landscape. The title track opens with great slabs of slowly evolving orchestral chords that rise up out of a cold, ethereal atmosphere. Arpeggiating piano tones, deep Moog basses, ethereal strings & analog sequencers all vie for attention in the following five tracks. The latter are at times light and playful with interlocking layers on tracks such as “Quantum Of Memory” whereas an all together darker vibe is created on the deep bass pulses of “Shrine”. The final track “One Day” finishes the album off in an emotional manner with rising string melodies above haunting piano arpeggios.

Title:
Tone Science
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

Ian Boddy has been releasing music for over 35 years yet despite this long musical career he still manages to surprise his listeners and “Tone Science” could represent his most experimental album to date. He has always been fascinated by the random qualities of natural phenomena such as streams, waves, the leaves on a tree or the clouds in the sky. With this thought in mind he set about creating soundscapes using controlled random systems that could self generate themselves using his analogue modular gear. What you hear on these five pieces is the result of these complex interactions. Like the natural phenomena he describes above they appear to stay the same yet they never repeat and each has a distinct mood.

Slide
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

“Slide” is the studio album follow-up to “Elemental” (DNS25) and is the sixteenth full solo CD release by DiN label boss Ian Boddy. Musically it is split between three beautifully expressive legato pieces and six up-tempo tracks which employ Boddy's trademark inventive rhythms with soaring, expressive synth voices. “Slide” is dominated by the sound and playing techniques Boddy has coaxed from a new musical instrument he acquired in 2008. This is a modern analogue version of the keyboard employed by the Ondes Martenot. Thus even after a musical career spanning 28 years Boddy still has the ability to discover new ways of expressing himself and producing an album that will delight and surprise with it's musical inventiveness.

Frontiers

Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

DiN label boss Ian Boddy is as well known for his collaborative projects as for his solo output and Erik Wøllo is the eighth musician Boddy has worked with on the DiN catalogue. This feedback and inter-connection between musicians with different musical backgrounds has always been one of the DiN labels main aims which continues to produce fascinating and unexpected results. Frontiers (DNS39) is a musical travelogue through lands unknown although the sonic climate is very much influenced by the two musicians shared Northern European heritage. Constantly shifting in mood and tone, the album leads the listener across vast, open, icy sonic landscapes whilst periodically sheltering in more warm humane zones. Expertly crafted by two renowned musicians Wøllo & Boddy produce a work of complex musical maturity that will open up it's secrets over repeated listenings.

“Colour Division” sees DiN label boss Ian Boddy once again collaborating with German composer and guitarist Markus Reuter and these two skilled musicians effortlessly continue their sonic dialogue over seven mesmerizing tracks. Several of these use one of Reuter's trademark guitar looped soundscapes as a starting point over which Boddy paints a glorious ambient tapestry of sound. His distinctive, singing Ondes Martenot style synth lead lines and love of analogue modular synths sees distinctive bass lines and sequencing overlaid with an incredible variety of fuzz tones and textures from the instrument that Reuter is no doubt a master of, the U8 touch guitar.

Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

The Les Brown Band did not have the success of the bands Such as Goodman, Shaw, James, Miller and The Dorsey Brothers in the late thirties and early forties, but over the years Les built a band that had a good clean crisp sound, with good soloists and a tight muted brass sound that identifies it as the Les Brown Band. He only has to start to play his theme Leapfrog and you know at once who you are listening to. As is usual with a Les Brown band he features a strong lineup of musicians with amongst others Dave Pell, Rollie Bundock, Don Fagerquist, Butch Stone, Stumpy Brown and Jack Sperling. Also featured is a powerful lineup of vocalists including Lucy Ann Polk, Jo Ann Greer, The Modernaires, The Ames Brothers and Jud Conlon’s Rhythmaires. I think that time will say of Les Brown And His Band Of Renown that they were one of the Big Band greats.

Vol. 1 The Legacy Of Clive Bradley
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A30) $30.98 

A collection of 13 tracks by pan-music artists, the "Desperadoes Steel Orchestra", includes covers of such well-known artists as Barry White, Celine Dion and Andrew Lloyd Weber. This collection contains five Panorama Classics and eight popular melodies including Barry White's "Let the Music Play" as well as "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing" and Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On". This CD is a tribute to Clive Bradley. Clive Bradley was an idiosyncratic, enigmatic, erratic but pragmatic musician and arranger who meandered mercurially through the corridors of life, leaving in his wake a contour not unlike that of the great Mississippi River. Bradley never played Pan, his instrument was the piano; yet he meticulously developed a synergistic relationship with the hypnotic, charismatic Desperadoes at the summit of Laventille that spawned a bitter-sweet saga spanning four decades. Together they earned acclaim and respect from the steelband fraternity of Trinidad & Tobago, the Diaspora and beyond, winning the coveted title of Panorama Champions on six ecstatic occasions. The Pacific Micronics High Definition Compatible Digital recording process HDCD was co-invented by well-known audio engineer Keith O. Johnson and computer software designer Michael Pflaumer.

Harmony Heaven
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Clarence Johnstone and Turner Layton teamed up in 1924 and first appeared in London in an Elsie Janis revue, they were booked to appear in a cabaret before going home, and this time caught the ear and eye of a recording executive who signed them up to a contract, written out on the back of a menu card then and there, and for over eleven years they made records of all the best popular songs of what has since become known as the Golden Age of the Dance Bands (and by this, the Golden Age of the Popular Songs). Turner Layton was already quite well-known in New York as the composer of such very popular standards as After You’ve Gone, Dear Old South Land, Strut Miss Lizzie and Way Down Yonder In New Orleans. After the partnership broke up in November, 1935, he continued as a solo act, recording regularly until 1948. Johnstone returned to New York, and died in obscurity there after eking out an existence as a bell-boy in a hotel; Layton stayed in London until his death, well into his eighties, in February I978. The twenty numbers on this disc were made between the end of 1925, at the outset of electric recording (although the singers’ first records together were made by the old acoustic method of singing into a long metal horn) and the late summer of 1933. It offers a cross section of the kind of songs that were popular then, in all the various styles, from the extrovert Stein Song that swept the country in the summer of 1930 to the tenderness of Ramona, which did likewise just two years earlier.

The result was an astonishingly intimate and revealing portrait of a man and his music. Monk sits at the piano and plays whatever occurs to him.

“Shade” is the studio album follow-up to “Obsessive Surrealism” (DNS26) and is the fifth CD release by Parallel Worlds (the main musical project of Greek electronic musician Bakis Sirros). He employs a vast arsenal of both vintage & modern analogue modular synthesizers with extensive use of classic sequencing to produce a sonic world that combines modern electronica & ambient music styles with the feel of retro electronic music. Carefully sculpted sounds and textures produce an organic, ever evolving atmosphere full of half glimpsed meanings and subdued emotions. With “Shade” Parallel Worlds show a musical maturity and command of sonic atmospherics that takes the music on a journey, moving through dreams and shades, aiming for the light.

Morphogenic
Release Date: 4/7/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

Morphogenic sees a new collaborative project on the DiN label between Greek synthesist Bakis Sirros aka Parallel Worlds and Dave Bessell who is a member of legendary synth group Node. Whilst the eight tracks have all the fluidity and organic feel of analogue synth dominated pieces, they have a shape and form to them that make them fascinating compositions. Warm, organic soundscapes combined with unusual and detailed textures through which the incessant, complex rhythms and beats of Sirros rise and fall. These two artists complement one another very well, giving Morphogenic a feel that is both retro in its analogue heritage, yet forward looking in its unusual detailed textures and is another excellent release to add to the DiN canon.

“World Adapter” is the second collaborative album between Bakis Sirros (Parallel Worlds) & Ingo Zobel (Self Oscillate).

On the track “Legend Silence” they collaborate with the Polish singer/composer India Czajkowska whose ethereal voice adds a distinctive flavor to this composition. The duo then hang beguiling, simple melodies around these structures to create another intriguing quality release from the DiN label.

Format: LP
List Price: (B28) $28.98 

Formed in 1978 in the sleepy Brighton suburb of Peacehaven, Peter & The Test Tube Babies are one of the most legendary bands of the first wave of UK Oi! and punk. Known for their sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and explosive live show, the band has been rocking stages for nearly 4 decades and are still going strong. Pissed & Proud, originally released in 1982, is their debut full-length album. They had previously released numerous singles and compilation tracks, but this live album - recorded in Hammersmith, Wood Green, and their original stomping ground, Brighton - was their biggest release yet. Not many bands debut with a live album, but for Peter & The Test Tube Babies, who were at that point legends for their live show, it made perfect sense. Essential UK Oi! reissued on vinyl, enjoy P&TTTB at their rawest, wryest best.

From delicately scored ballads to a raucous take on "Caravan," Bay-Area guitarist Mason Razavi's second volume of his "Quartet Plus" series inhabits the great traditional jazz forms while enhancing them with modern textures and rhythms, creating a work that should leave jazz aficionados of various stripes nodding in approval. Working with pianist Bennett Roth-Newell, bassist Dan Robbins and drummer Cody Rhodes, the "Plus" is a five-piece horn section featured on several dynamic and intricately arranged compositions. •"Evocative storytelling is the hallmark of Razavi's music." - All About Jazz

Dervish

Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

“Dervish” is Markus Reuter & Ian Boddy's most challenging studio collaboration to date. Recorded in England & Austria, the album contains a guest appearance by King Crimson’s drummer Pat Mastelotto. Inspired in part by the musical theories of 20th Century composer Olivier Messiaen, there's a terse angularity to the compositions whose unexpected textures feature the appearances of a string quartet & a recorder player. Atmospheric loops, cross-picking arpeggios, unresolved sequences that hang in the air, and some metallic edged soloing that carves its own unique space. All add extra layers of momentum and tension to a music already brimming with invention and mystery. You may have heard Boddy and Reuter before but you've not heard them sound like this.

"React" is the third collaboration between American ambient pioneer Robert Rich and DiN label founder Ian Boddy. However, unlike their previous two studio outings on the DiN label, Outpost (2001) and Lithosphere (2005), this is a record of their first ever live performance at the Star's End Radio Show 30th Anniversary Celebration Concert in Philadelphia in June 2007. The music ebbs and flows from abstract soundscapes through gentle reveries to up tempo sections that combine thunderous analogue bass and glitchy percussion overlain with a mesmerizing mix of keyboards, flutes and gliss guitar. A truly unique concert performance by two of the most accomplished musicians in modern ambient electronica.

Through the richly textured arrangements of longtime collaborator Nick Lane and a stellar ensemble of Los Angeles' finest, veteran guitarist and composer Tom Rizzo creates a swinging and wide-ranging recording of interesting standards and provocative originals. From the subtly loose groove of Ornette Coleman's, "Law Years," to the lush orchestration of Wayne Shorter's "Infant Eyes," or the buoyant swing of Cole Porter's "So In Love," Rizzo's supple guitar lines provide a central voice to a wide array of sonic moods. Along with the quartet of Rizzo, drummer Steve Schaeffer, pianist Dennis Hamm and bassist David Hughes, is a 6-piece horn section featuring saxophonist Bob Sheppard, trumpeter Bob Summers and Nick Lane on trombone. •"...that exciting intersection of small combo creativity and big band momentum which characterizes "little-big band" performance." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Blue Grass Favorites

Format: CD
List Price: (B10) $10.98 

Originally recorded for release as a budget-price "rack-filler" for sale at department stores and petrol stations, the Scottsville Squirrel Barkers' "Blue Grass Favorites" became a favorite of every young California musician who later forged a reputation as a country or folk rocker, most notably Gram Parsons. It also served to introduce the world to Kenny Wertz of Linda Ronstadt's Stone Poneys and later Country Gazette, and also to a youthful Chris Hillman of Byrds, Burritos and Desert Rose Band fame, whose first record it was. A short, sharp and energetic bluegrass attack, this is a valuable addition to Ace's growing catalog of '50s and '60s country, bluegrass and hillbilly. (Previously deleted:10/1/14.

Moments Captured
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (B18) $18.98 

Moments Captured is trumpeter Alex Sipiagin's third Criss Cross date to feature a three-horn lineup, after Equilibrium in 2004 and Destinations Unknown in 2011. While the earlier discs featured David Binney on alto, here it is the fiery Will Vinson displaying his prodigious talents alongside the leader and master tenorist Chris Potter. Rounding out the lineup on this exploratory all-original session are the players from Sipiagin's 2015 album Balance 35/58: John Escreet on piano and keyboards, Matt Brewer on bass, and Eric Harland on drums. The intricate, polyphonic aspect of Sipiagin's writing continues to flower and grow, but it is Escreet's extensive use of the Prophet 6 synthesizer that marks this album's biggest departure. Wringing a seemingly limitless array of tonal colors from the instrument, Escreet gives Sipiagin's music a refreshing and wholly unpredictable edge.

Souls That Save

Format: LP
List Price: (B28) $28.98 

LA death rock originators Super Heroines may not be a household name now, but they were on the cutting edge of a variety of different scenes in the early 1980s. Band leader Eva O was simultaneously a member of Christian Death starting with their legendary debut, Only Theatre Of Pain, and worked with husband Rozz Williams in his later group, Shadow Project, until his untimely demise by his own hand in 1998. Meanwhile bassist Jill Emery went on to play with such divergent groups as Hole and Mazzy Star, and drummer Steven Darrow played in pre-Guns N' Roses group Hollywood Rose with Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin. All of this is to show that the band had a huge mark of the LA scene, not to imply they are just a footnote. Their second album, Souls That Save, came out in 1983 and would be their last record for nearly 10 years. Produced by Kaleidoscope's Chris Darrow, whose son was the drummer, the album picked up right where Cry For Help left off, with more classic '80s LA death rock. Reissued in a numbered limited edition press with printed innersleeve for Record Store Day 2017.

We have coordinated a "Nashville Soul" CD release with the book, concentrating on the work of multi-talented producer/arranger/songwriter Bob Holmes from the 1965 to 1980 time span. Considering the number of tracks he was involved with on this and the previous CDs, Holmes can be described as Nashville's premier soul provider.

The Big Beat - The Dave Bartholomew Songbook
Release Date: 5/5/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (B19) $19.98 

Great songs really do take on a life of their own and very often, unbeknownst to their creators, they’re discovered and interpreted by a wide range of different artists. One of the unexpected pleasures that Ace’s Songwriters series affords is underlining just how many styles and directions key compositions of yesteryear have taken. This collection of songs by New Orleans’ very own Dave Bartholomew is no exception as it weaves its way through 25 tracks of varied origins and labels. Two of Dave’s own recordings provide essential listening, led off by his original of the double-entendre-filled ‘My Ding-A-Ling’, which he later re-cut several times with different lyrics and which provided the template for Chuck Berry’s revival two decades later. Then you’ll find the much-revered parable ‘The Monkey’, which Elvis Costello memorably reworked some years back. Dave’s rich-toned narrative reigns supreme and is a cornerstone of his Imperial Records output.

Family Style
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (B78) $78.98 

Stevie Ray had made music beyond the powers of most musicians but for this 1990 studio collaboration he returned to the things he loved: upbeat music and working with the brother he idolized his whole life. In his early years, Stevie Ray Vaughan often remarked that he would like to do an album with his brother. He fulfilled that wish in his very last studio performance, which was released nearly a month after his death. The liner notes end with "Thanks Mama V. for letting us play." With slick production from Nile Rodgers and employing neither guitarist's band (Double Trouble nor the Fabulous Thunderbirds), this is bluesy, but far from purist. Jimmie makes his vocal debut on "White Boots" and "Good Texan" and the brothers blur the lines between their expected guitar styles &emdash; Stevie sometimes going for a less sustained twang, Jimmie moving into Albert King territory.

The Sky Is Crying was released after SRV's 1990 helicopter crash that took his life. The posthumously assembled 10-track outtakes collection actually proves to be one of Vaughan's most consistent albums, rivaling In Step as the best outside of the Greatest Hits collection. These songs were recorded in sessions spanning from 1984's Couldn't Stand the Weather to 1989's In Step and were left off of the LPs for whatever reason (or, in the case of Soul to Soul's "Empty Arms," a different version was used).

In Step

Format: LP
List Price: (B78) $78.98 

On 1989's In Step, Vaughan found his own song writing voice, blending blues, soul, and rock in unique ways, and writing with startling emotional honesty. Yes, there are a few covers, all well chosen, but the heart of the album rests in the songs he co-wrote with Doyle Bramhall, the man who penned the Soul to Soul highlight "Change It." Fueled by a desire to make up for lost time and delight in his reawakened commitment to life and sobriety, Vaughan turned in what many consider his greatest artistic statement, an album ensconced in sweat, soul, determination, and not an ounce of filler.

Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

“Weltenuhr” (German for World Clock) is the second collaborative album on DiN by Norwegian ambient guitarist Erik Wøllo and German synthesist Bernhard Wöstheinrich. They previously collaborated in 2009 on the album “Arcadia Borealis” (DNS34). Pushing the boundaries of ambient electronica there is a strong vocal presence to the album with a beautiful, haunting female voice on the opener “Gales” as well as the albums title track. These pieces complement the other fully instrumental tracks which range from the pounding beat driven “Subgiants" to the ethereal “Echoes Of Parlours”. Bernhard’s inventive textural rhythms provide the perfect backdrop for Wøllo’s soaring E-bow guitar melodies on tracks such as “Oculus” and “Denser World”.
