Amazon Says: 2013 three CD collection from the iconic Motown quartet. For the first time ever, on the occasion of the group's 50th anniversary with Motown Records, every single from the Four Tops classic period is now in one package. This set contains each A- and B- side, from their first hit to the moment they left the storied label, as well as collector's bonus tracks. Featured among the set's 78 tracks are the group's 16 #1 Pop and R&B hits, from 'Baby I Need Your Loving' to '(It's The Way) Nature Planned It,' and the smashes in-between. Recognizing the group's undying popularity in England, the collection also includes 14 singles issued only in the U.K., from duets with the Supremes to the U.K. Top Three hit 'Simple Game' that featured backing by the Moody Blues.

Amazon Says: For the first time ever, on the occasion of the group's 50th anniversary of their first hit, every single from Martha Reeves & the Vandellas is now in one package-the 3-CD box set 50th Anniversary: The Singles Collection 1962-1972, featuring all A- and B- sides, and much, much more. Featured among the set's 82 tracks are the group's 10 top ten Pop and R&B hits, including the everlasting "Come And Get These Memories," "Dancing In The Street," "Heat Wave" and "Nowhere To Run"; also included are the Vandellas' Spanish language versions of "I'm Ready For Love" and "Jimmy Mack." Martha Reeves first arrived at Motown to audition; she ended up becoming the company's first A&R secretary, and then a star, when she filled in to sing at a session and brought her background singers along. Along with the Miracles and the Marvelettes, she and the Vandellas were Motown trailblazers, who helped develop what was to soon become the world-famous "Motown Sound." In addition to the group's singles, this collection has an incredible bonus: a full disc of 27 unreleased tracks from the legendary Motown vault. It's a big sampling of lost treasures Motown fans will devour, produced by some of Motown's greatest creative forces, including Berry Gordy, Mickey Stevenson, Stevie Wonder, Ashford & Simpson and, before his days leading The CorporationT, Deke Richards. Mr. Richards mixed exclusively for the set the six songs he produced, including an extraordinary find: the original take of "I Can't Dance To That Music You're Playin'," a single that ended up featuring Syreeta Wright in the chorus. While the set includes the original single, Richards' new mix restores Martha Reeves' chorus vocal and this discovery is a part of the "Lost & Found" tracks on Disc 3. Audio engineer Obie O'Brien mixed the rest of the unreleased material, working on vintage gear in Jon Bon Jovi's Sanctuary Studio. Another bonus: O'Brien's first-ever stereo single mix of "Jimmy Mack." Martha Reeves & The Vandellas: 50th Anniversary: The Singles Collection 1962-1972 is housed in packaging similar to the acclaimed series The Complete Motown Singles, accompanied by a booklet filled with detailed information about each single, reproductions of spectacular-looking picture sleeves from around the world, and classic and rare photos of Motown's first true superstar group. less...

Amazon Says: This time last year we were busy preparing for the release on Big Beat International of Nippon Girls, a collection of female vocalists from Japan. It ended up drawing a very favorable reception, especially from hip young club-goers with a yen for something edgy and different to inspire them on the dance floor. For the first issue to carry our new Ace International logo we stray a little less far from home, hopping just over the channel to France, home of the 1960s yé-yé girl phenomenon.Comprising 24 tracks by 20 acts - Françoise Hardy, France Gall, Jacqueline Taïeb and the country's top girl group Les Gam's are each represented by two titles - C'est Chic! features many of the premier female stars of Gallic pop, plus a few French-singing non-nationals for good measure.The majority of the songs here are French compositions, but astute listeners will recognize some others in their English language originals. We Got A Thing That's In The Groove (as popularized by US soul group the Capitols), I'm Going Out With The Girls (Barbara Chandler), Laugh At Me (Sonny Bono), Around And Around We Go (Lonnie Jay & the Jaynes), Tiny Goddess (Nirvana), He's In Town (the Tokens) and The Sha La La Song (Marianne Faithfull) are each given a distinctive French twist.The compilers are currently immersed in the recordings of the yé-yé girls of Italy and Spain with a view to future Ace International releases. Also in the works is a collection of compositions by fabled songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, from whose vast catalogue Roller Girl by Anna Karina, Laisser Tomber Les Filles by France Gall and Non, A Tous Les Garçons by Michèle Torr are among this set's highlights. less...

Amazon Says: Carry On is a four-CD set, spanning 50 years and includes more than five hours of music and includes a 113 page booklet. Produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein with Stephen Stills, Rhino s anthology spotlights the remarkable scope of stills career with essential recordings, live cuts, new mixes, and 25 previously unreleased tracks. The tracks unfold mostly in chronological order, and the anthology leads off with its oldest entry: "Travelin " a previously unreleased recording that Stills made at age 17 in Costa Rica (one of the many places he lived growing up in a military family). The youngest track, recorded only a few months ago, features CSN performing "Girl From The North Country" in New York City during a sold-out five-night run at the Beacon Theater that closed the group s acclaimed 2012 world tour. Carry On, which features a 113-page booklet with rare photos and extensive liner notes by Michael O Hara Garcia, David Bender, and NY Times Best Selling author Daniel Levitin, will be available as a 4-CD boxed set on March 26 from Rhino. In addition to essential studio and live recordings, Carry On covers new ground with more than an hour s worth of previously unreleased material including "No-Name Jam, " a 1970 recording of Stills in London trading guitar licks with his friend Jimi Hendrix. Other previously unissued highlights include the songs "Welfare Blues" (1984), "Little Miss Bright Eyes" (1973), and "Who Ran Away? " (1968), and early demo versions of "Forty-Nine Reasons" and "The Lee Shore, " and "Black Coral, " a song Stills and Young released as a duo in 1976 the version here features all four members of CSNY. "The Treasure" offers a peek into Stills process originally released in 1973 on Manassas s self-titled debut, this version was recorded by Stills three years earlier with bassist Calvin Samuels and drummer Conrad Isidore during sessions for Stephen Stills 2. Carry On also features a number of classic songs newly remixed by Nash and Stanley Tajima Johnston, including "Everydays, " "To A Flame, " "See The Changes, " "4+20" and "Change Partners, " the latter with Jerry Garcia on pedal steel guitar. There is also a newly edited version of Stills performing "Cuba Al Fin" at the Havana Jam in 1979. Several songs make their CD-debut, including "Uno Mundo, " "War Games" and the single mix of "Love The One You re With. " Stills time on stage is represented as well with a number of previously released performances, including several from his acclaimed 2005 album Man Alive. The collection boasts new live tracks, including CSN singing "No Tears Left" in 1997 at the Fillmore in San Francisco, and CSNY on stage in 2002 at Madison Square Garden with Memphis Horns Booker T. Jones and Donald "Duck" Dunn covering Otis Redding s "Ole Man Trouble. " Other famous players turn up on Carry On's wealth of material as well, including Herbie Hancock, Eric Clapton, Maynard Ferguson, Ray Baretto, Willie Bobo, and Larry Harlow. less...

Amazon Says: Volume 4 of Bridge's Fred Lerdahl series offers music composed over a span of four decades. Three recent pieces, Spirals, Three Diatonic Studies, and Imbrications, are recorded here for the first time and two earlier works, Wake and Fantasy Etudes, are re-issues. Spirals is scored for an orchestra of double woodwinds, two horns, two trumpets, percussion, piano, and strings. The two movements are of equal length, the first fast and brilliant, the second slow and lyrical. Three Diatonic Studies originated in a commission from the Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival to write a variation based on the Aria of Bach s Goldberg Variations. Lerdahl later added two other diatonic studies to form the present suite. The brief Imbrications was written in 2001 in honor of the composer Andrew Imbrie s 80th birthday. `The inspiration for Wake came from James Joyce s Finnegans Wake. The work was composed at the request of the legendary soprano Bethany Beardslee and was composed while Lerdahl was in residence at the Marlboro Music Festival. Lerdahl composed Fantasy Etudes in 1985. The piece is in one movement and is scored, like Imbrications, for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, percussion, and piano. The stunning performance here is by three-time Grammy-winning ensemble, eighth blackbird. Fred Lerdahl's music is highly esteemed for having developed original harmonic syntaxes and formal processes, presented with expressive depth. less...

Amazon Says: All you have to do is listen to Lady once, and you ll remember in case you forgot why they call it soul music. The honesty, the aching sweetness, the raw power of these singers and their songs will remind you that nothing can move you as much, or touch you as deeply, as two women with amazing voices singing in tight harmony. Lady is the new collaborative project by Terri Walker and Nicole Wray. This unexpected transatlantic pairing was born out of a shared love of soul music and the resulting album also entitled Lady is a modern day interpretation of the classic sounds pioneered by labels such as Stax, Atlantic, and Motown. Lady unites the mellowness and pop flair of 60s soul with the driving beat of hip-hop, and the silky rhythms of modern R&B. These two powerful voices harmonize to create a fresh sound that tells the stories of growing up and never giving up, of love and friendship, of yearning and losing, bad girls and good hearts. The lead single Money offers an overdue female perspective on the gold digger dynamic and has been accumulating plays and plaudits since emerging online. Other highlights include the self-assured strut of Get Ready, the dramatic, piano-driven Karma, Walker and Wray's tender tribute to their mothers in Sweet Lady and the heart-racing raunch of Good Lovin'. Lady s vocals switch smoothly from solos to seamless harmonies and are underpinned throughout by Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman's luscious production. Better know as Truth & Soul, Michels & Silverman write, produce and run a Brooklyn-based studio and label with a growing reputation. The multi-talented duo's credits include writing for Adele, production for Lee Fields & The Expressions and both writing and production on Aloe Blacc s Good Things album and its worldwide hit single, I Need A Dollar. Lady is an authentic original, drawing from the past to infuse the present with new power. Prepare to take your hat off to Lady. Get ready to fall in love. There has never been, there will never be, anything else like it. less...

Amazon Says: Best Days Yet is Morton s 10th solo album and features a first time collaboration with phenomenal Grammy Award winning producer Donald Lawrence. The album offers a flawless combo of Morton s classic, strong vocals and Lawrence s masterful vocal arrangements and production. The album loudly proclaims themes of encouragement, hope and transformation. The opening title track, Best Days Yet starts the album strongly in timeless fashion that will soon have choirs and churches singing along. Though studio-recorded, the song s powerful instrumentation gives it a live feel. Album cuts Times Like These, and upbeat It s Over continues the themes throughout. Morton s son PJ is well known for his amazing songwriting pens several songs on the album lending his signature sound to the album. Among the highlights are the contemporary Go Through and The Promise, (also featuring Morton s daughter Jasmine Morton-Ross). One highlight is Something Happens (Jesus) an immediate classic that is pure gospel music. There are also stand-out guest artists on the project including, Marvin Winans offering smooth and rich vocals on Things Are Changing and the incomparable Karen Clark Sheard on the Thomas Whitfield classic The Grass Withereth. less...

Amazon Says: Legendary jazz guitarist Bill Frisell's first release on OKeh Records, Big Sur, features all-new music commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival which premiered at their festival in 2012. While staying at the Glen Deven Ranch, Frisell was captivated by the beauty and grandeur of the Big Sur, California coastline which inspired him to write this transcendent new music. He is joined on the recording by the talented musicians of his Big Sur Quintet; Jenny Scheinman (violin), Eyvind Kang (viola), Hank Roberts (cello) and Rudy Royston (drums). Bill Frisell is one of the leading and most innovative guitarists of our time. Although his work is steeped in jazz, his music includes characteristics of rock, country, and bluegrass, among various other styles. Such liberality explains his willingness to expand his tonal palette beyond that of the typical jazz guitarist and he has carved out a niche by virtue of his sound. A Grammy winner for Best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2005, Bill is one of the most singular musicians of his generation and has released over 30 albums since his debut recording in 1983. less...

Amazon Says: R.E.M. achieved global success with the 1988 release of Green, the Athens, Georgia quartet s sixth studio album and first for Warner Bros. Records, which would be the band s label home for the rest of their recording career. While R.E.M. was fast becoming one of the most acclaimed and revered acts in the U.S., Green was their first album to gain the attention of a worldwide audience. Packed with tracks destined to be definitive additions to the band s canon, including "Orange Crush, " "Pop Song 89, " and "Stand, " Green was certified double platinum and doubled the domestic sales of the band s previous release. Green continued R.E.M. s dedication to the message of social consciousness, as evidenced by the album s title, which would go on to became a ubiquitous buzzword for environmentally friendly initiatives. To celebrate the landmark album s 25-year anniversary, Rhino presents a two-disc deluxe edition that features the remastered original album accompanied by a disc of live performances taken from the penultimate show of R.E.M. s 130-date Green World Tour. All 21 songs were recorded in Greensboro, North Carolina on November 10, 1989, just miles from where Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Bill Berry had their very first recording session at Mitch Easter s Drive-In Studio in Winston-Salem. The concert captures a fiery set from R.E.M., which had been forged in the crucible of nearly one year of shows. R.E.M. performed most of Green ("Get Up, " "World Leader Pretend" and "You Are The Everything"), while mixing in early favorites like "Fall On Me, " "Finest Worksong, " "The One I Love" and "Perfect Circle" from the band s 1983 debut Murmur. The show also finds the band testing out new songs ("Low" and "Belong") that would appear two years later on Green s follow-up, Out Of Time. The anniversary set is packaged in a hard clamshell box (similar to previous R.E.M. reissues) and comes with four postcards and a foldout poster, plus insightful liner notes by Uncut editor, Allan Jones. Green: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be available as a 2-disc set and digitally. The remastered album with original art and packaging will also be available on 180-gram vinyl. less...

Amazon Says: Commissioned by the Molde International Jazz Festival and recorded live at the Norwegian festival in 2010, La notte is a salute to Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni, whom Ketil Bjornstad counts amongst his formative influences. At the same time that I was listening to Miles Davis In A Silent Way and discovering what jazz could be, I was also watching films by Godard, Bresson and Antonioni. Perhaps it was the slow, rhythmic authority in the films by Michelangelo Antonioni that made me think of music... As long as visual art creates music in our minds, and music creates pictures and visual expressions with the same intensity, the two are deeply and profoundly interdependent. This album, then, can be considered the soundtrack to an inner film, in which Antonionis images and atmospheres are translated and transformed through personal moods and memories. For the Molde concert, Bjornstad convened a special Norwegian-Danish-German-British band of musicians, old and new friends closely associated with ECM. The concert was rapturously received by the media, and described as an absolutely stunning performance by All About Jazz. less...

Amazon Says: Grammy nominated R&B hit maker Chantè Moore has, for two decades, delivered music that is beautiful, sensual and classy, both solo and with Kenny Lattimore. Collaborations with R. Kelly, Prince, El DeBarge, Raphael Saadiq and others as well as widespread touring and many appearances in major theatrical productions such as Big Momma s House have augmented her high profile as one of the finest female vocalists on the current R&B scene. Moore Is More finds Chantè in splendid form on a sparkling set of mostly original songs plus her scintillating interpretation of the romantic standard Cry Me a River . The new album features tracks by producers Midi Mafia, Antwanne Frost, and Chris Big Dog Davis. Chantè is starring in the upcoming reality show R&B Divas: L.A., a spin off of the successful TV One reality show R&B Divas, which launched in August 2012. Chantè is currently touring nationally on the Soulful Sistas concert tour which also features Kelly Price, Regina Belle, and Shirley Murdock. less...

Amazon Says: Totally obscure, utterly beguiling and shockingly relevant to today's music scene, this 1971 pairing of guitarist Ernie Calabria and soul singer Barbara Massey is a good example of why reissue labels exist. Prior to this recording, Calabria had played on sessions for Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone and Anita Carter, while Massey had sung backup for Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock and Cat Stevens among others. With those influences, the duo made exactly the kind of album you might expect a funky, folky (!), psychedelic soul gem graced with a stellar list of sidemen (e.g. Joe Beck and Keith Jarrett) that vanished without a trace in the more stratified world of early '70s music retail. Nowadays, of course, the record's mix-and-match blend of styles sounds amazingly current thanks in part to disco pioneer Eumir Deodato's orchestrations and its oft-sampled sound has won devotees from the jazz, soul, psych and funk factions of crate diggers worldwide. Nevertheless, this Real Gone release marks its first legitimate release on CD, with added liner notes by Pat Thomas. For starters, check out the slow-burning version of Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love" you're gonna fall instantly in love with this album. less...

After a ten year layoff, he's back, with Graham Central Station, bringing the thump and the funk as hot as ever, on Raise Up. The album is a collection of 13 tracks that include new master recordings of three of the band's favorite songs along with songs that mix funk, soul and pop, and deliver it with infectious horn arrangements and powerful vocals. Graham's long-time friend Prince makes three guest appearances on Raise Up, as does singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Rafael Saadiq. less...

Amazon Says: 2012 collaboration. The Thing took their name from a piece by Don Cherry: when they first got together it was to play his music. So it does make sense that they should eventually team up with Don Cherry's daughter, Neneh. Meeting in London in the fall of 2010 to record, it clicked right away as they all shared an open, free approach to the music. The high energy of The Thing's playing found a fitting counterpart in Neneh's intense style. Includes covers of songs from Suicide, The Stooges, Ornette Coleman, MF Doom, Martina Topley-Bird and, of course, Don Cherry. less...

Amazon Says: Integrity is the first word that comes to mind when surveying the musical catalog of Kathy Mattea. It is also the adjective that best describes the artist and the woman. The depth of her personal character pours into her work, as well as in her discussions and interviews. Integrity dictates her choices in each song often infused with folk and bluegrass and always lyrical substance, while every note she sings in her deep, lush voice is clear and deliberate. This is the very best of this classy singer whose music manages to combine country, bluegrass, folk and rock. Her 20 Greatest Hits 1983 To 1993 Features #1s 'Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses,' 'Goin' Gone,' 'Come From The Heart,' & 'Burnin' Old Memories' Also Includes Her Hit Rendition Of Nanci Griffith's 'Love At The Five And Dime'.

Amazon Says: When it came time to begin work on the seventh album, Gourley thought long and hard about the next move and kept coming back to one concept: The most satisfying work is collaborative work. From building houses with his father in Alaska to building a devoted fanbase, he had sought partnerships. So he took a bold step - bold for a proven band, bolder still for its uncertainty of sound - a step up to the apartment of a possible collaborator, Danger Mouse. So Danger Mouse - aka Brian Burton, the five-time Grammy award winning producer behind everything from Gnarls Barkley and Beck to The Black Keys and now U2 -and the band agreed that they were game for the challenge and began production on what would become Evil Friends, the undaunted re-awakening for Portugal. The Man. As much as their collaborative imaginations melded, to construct songs that lived up to the ambitious visions they had would take some time. After all, here was a band with an evolving lineup - Kyle O'Quin on keyboards, Noah Gersh on guitar/percussion/keyboards, and Kane Ritchotte on drums joined Zach Carothers on bass and vocals and Gourley on lead vocals and guitar - building songs with a new producer trying to do something neither of them had done before. Each track on Evil Friends is as different from the next as Portugal. The Man's previous records were from each other, which is to say a piece of a growing mindscape, and wholly a part of the group's tumbling fever dream. less...

Amazon Says: #32 Album of the Year - Mojo #15 Album of the Year - NPR (Bob Boilen) "My Garden State" - NPR Favorite 100 Songs of 2013 Glenn Jones is a unique voice working in the decades-long tradition of American Primitivism. What sets him apart from the many devotees to this style is the combination of expressive playing and technical skill, most significantly his inventive use of alternate tunings and partial capos. As anyone knows who has seen him perform, Glenn is a remarkable storyteller, and his songs reflect that talent. The songs on Glenns latest, My Garden State, are evocative and redolent, and serve as a testament to Glenns talent for conveying a wide array of emotions, many times in one song, without saying a word. My Garden State was written in the New Jersey home where Glenns family moved in 1966, while he was caring for his mother who suffers from Alzheimers. The songs and sounds on the album are reflective, but never dour or sad. My Garden State was recorded by Laura Baird in Allentown, NJ. Laura joins Glenn on the first proper song, Across the Tappan Zee on banjo, interweaving her plaintive melodies with Glenns gentle picking. Lauras sister Meg, who was a founding member of Espers and plays with Laura as The Baird Sisters, also joins in on the final minutes of Going Back to East Montgomery, an eight minute long composition that showcases Glenns ability to craft a long form piece that is at once expansive and immediate. The two tracks that form the centerpiece of the album, The Vernal Pool and Alcoeur Gardens were composed spontaneously in the studio, a technique Glenn developed on tour with Damo Suzuki with his former band Cul de Sac. Where The Vernal Pool is exuberant, Alcouer Gardens is sparse and quiet, with field recordings of rain and thunder providing a bed for Glenn s guitar, emphasizing the space between the notes as much as the notes themselves. The songs on My Garden State could have been written by no one except Glenn Jones, brimming with joy, sorrow, and the complex in-between that makes life worth living. less...

Amazon Says: Laura Marling's new album, 'Once I Was An Eagle', the follow up to 2011's stand out 'A Creature I Don't Know', is a hugely ambitious album reflecting the poise and confidence of a songwriter far beyond her years (23).

Amazon Says: Crooked Still's 4th album Some Strange Country is an elegant package of superbly crafted musical styles taking country/folk as the deep foundation and veering off into exhilarating and exciting directions. It's amazing music and it can hardly be called "bluegrass" or be locked into one genre. Where Ray Charles gave us Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music back in 1962, Crooked Still bring those expressions into the new millennium. Recorded during a long blizzard in rural Virginia, Some Strange Country expands on the band's unique blend of Appalachian-based string band styles combining with chamber music strings and pop sensibility, all supporting Aoife O'Donovan's sultry and sometimes spooky vocals. The album was produced by Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek) and features guest contributions of bluegrass legends Ricky Skaggs and Tim O'Brien and vocals from rising star Sarah Jarosz. There are several gorgeous original songs along side adaptations of tradition numbers from less...

Amazon Says: Dionne Warwick's 1972-1977 singles for the Warner Bros. label not only feature a reteaming with Burt Bacharach and Hal David but also a host of other top-drawer collaborators, including former Motown kingpins Holland-Dozier-Holland, Philly soul king Thom Bell, R&B legend Jerry Ragovoy, West Coast pop-rock pioneer Steve Barri with multiple Grammy-winner Michael Omartian, and ace Gladys Knight & The Pips producer Joe Porter. Now, for the first-time ever, the "A" and "B" sides of all 21 of Warwick's original Warner Brothers stereo single sides are brought together into an album including such tracks that hit Billboard's Hot 100, R&B and Easy Listening charts as "Once You Hit The Road" and "If We Only Have Love." Although Dionne would leave Warners to achieve new triumphs with Arista Records in 1978, these long-buried gems many of which have never been released on CD reveal that her soulful pop sound and vision remained potent and true during the '70s. Paul Howes notes include quotes from Dionne herself that illuminate this overlooked period in her brilliant career. less...
