For RSD Black Friday 2017, Omnivore Recordings, with the help of the Estate of Chris Bell, are releasing his complete recordings, titled The Complete Chris Bell! This magnificent six LP set of Chris Bell's recorded output contains everything he ever recorded, including Looking Forward: The Roots Of Big Star Featuring Chris Bell, Rock City's See Seven States, I Am The Cosmos (Expanded), and two LPs of Outtakes and Alternate versions. Rounding out the box set is an exclusive unissued London interview from 1975 conducted by Barry Ballard, and a 20 page color booklet with previously unseen photos.

Highly respected record label Light In The Attic is celebrating the 50th anniversary of 1960s sunshine-pop band The Free Design's debut album, Kites Are Fun, on limited edition colored vinyl. Kites Are Fun is a sunshine-bubblegum-daisy-puppy pop masterpiece that stands the test of time. Fans of the Beach Boys will wonder how they ever overlooked this 1967 gem, long admired by the likes of Beck, Madlib, and Belle & Sebastian. The Free Design was born out of the the Greenwich Village scene of 1966, and before disbanding in 1972, they had released six albums with tightly-knit vocal arrangements and intricately beautiful melodies. Nine of the songs on their debut Kites Are Fun are originals, notably the title track, which became an instant soft-pop classic. Well-chosen covers, including the Beatles' "Michelle" and Simon & Garfunkels' "The 59th Street Bridge Song," complete the collection. For Record Store Day Black Friday 2017, Light In The Attic is proud to introduce The Free Design to a whole new generation of listeners.

1.) Kites Are Fun 2.) Make the Madness Stop 3.) When Love is Young 4.) The Proper Ornaments 5.) My Brother Woody 6.) 59th Street Bridge Song 7.) Don't Turn Away 8.) Umbrellas 9.) Michelle 10.) Never Tell the World 11.) A Man and a Woman 12.) Stay Another Season

It's clear that garage music has had an international resurgence in the underground music community over the last decade. It's easy to find bands young and old paying tribute to the fuzzy, high-energy sound that originated in American garages of the 1960's. Sadly, some of the recordings that helped start it all have long been lost to obscurity in the digital age. Garage Daze compiles some of the best tracks of that time, pulled together from 45RPM singles on labels like Roulette, Atco, and Jubilee. The tracks on this limited edition compilation LP have been remastered and pressed on color vinyl at Pallas in Germany.

A1 The Shadows of Knight “Gloria 69” 2:35 A2 The Groupies “Primitive” 3:48 A3 The Bare Facts “Bad Part of Town” 2:05 A4 The Red Dogs “Open Up” 2:05 A5 The Pedestrians “It’s Too Late” 2:00 A6 Jay Brown “Don’t Push Me Around” 2:01 A7 The Vacant Lot “I Blew It” 2:06 A8 The Tikis “Pay Attention to Me” 2:06 B1 The Third Bardo “I’m Five Years Ahead of My Time” 2:16 B2 Ognir and the Nite People “I Found A New Love” 2:10 B3 The Plunderers “Batman” 2:53 B4 The Free “(Day of) Decision For Lost Soul Blue” 3:35 B5 The Fenways “Be Careful Little Girl” 2:17 B6 The Front Line “Got Love” 1:45 B7 The Squires “Going All the Way” 2:20 B8 The Mojo Men “Dance With Me” 2:30

A fixture on the international music scene since 1981, Falco has been described by The New York Times as “A singer, guitarist and researcher of musical arcana who hasn’t let his increasingly technical expertise and idiomatic mastery compromise the clarity of his vision.” At the start of a scorching hot July in Memphis this year, Falco and his distinguished group of American/Euro vagabonds ensconced themselves at Sam Phillips Recording Service studios in Memphis. The lineup includes bassist Mike Watt (Minutemen, the Stooges), guitarist Mario Monterosso, and drummer Toby Dammit (currently the touring keyboardist in Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds).

Richard Hell & The Voidoids

Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ Blank Generation is an iconic album that has influenced countless rock bands with its image, its attitude, and its blistering performances. Released in 1977 on Sire Records, the album was received ecstatically by critics such as Lester Bangs and the New York Times’ Robert Palmer (who called it one of the ten best albums of the decade), but as was the case with most original “punk” albums, it wouldn’t get mainstream recognition for decades. Now its place in music history is secure as one of punk’s most significant records. Recently, Rolling Stone magazine lauded Blank Generation as one of the “40 Greatest Punk Albums of All Time,” giving the innovative and literate band its well deserved credit on the cusp of its 40th anniversary.

This seminal album is being recognized on its 40th anniversary this year with limited edition double-CD and double-LP deluxe editions to be released on Record Store Day’s Black Friday. Produced for release by Richard Hell, the album has been expertly remastered—by Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound, who mastered the original LP—as well as restored to its original 1977 track listing and sleeve imagery. BLANK GENERATION: 40th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION includes a second disc, with previously unreleased, alternate studio versions, out-of-print singles, and rare bootleg live tracks from the band’s first appearance in 1976 at CBGB. The booklet also contains many previously unpublished photos of the band by Roberta Bayley (the renowned CBGB photographer who shot the LP’s original cover), a revealing essay by Hell along with compelling images from his notebooks and private papers, and an extensive new interview with Ivan Julian by Hell.

After establishing his reputation as founder of legendary bands the Heartbreakers and Television, Hell went onto to lead the Voidoids which included Robert Quine (who later played in Lou Reed’s Blue Mask band, as well as for Tom Waits, John Zorn, and many others), Ivan Julian (who would record for Matthew Sweet and numerous other artists) and Marc Bell (“Marky Ramone”). Along with the Ramones, Television, Blondie and Talking Heads, Hell and his band helped to define the early New York “first wave” punk scene. The song “Blank Generation” became a slogan and an anthem and later was emulated by the Sex Pistols for their track, “Pretty Vacant.”

Such songs as “Love Comes In Spurts” and “Blank Generation” were originally recorded at Electric Lady Studios, but were re-recorded prior to release at Plaza Sound during Sire Records’ transition to Warner Bros. Records in 1977. At Plaza Hell reworked the album, leaving behind alternate versions and outtakes from Electric Lady that now appear on the second discs of these deluxe editions. The music sounds as fresh and abrasive today as when it was first released.

Hell retired from music in 1984, refocusing on writing as his vocation. He’s the author of two novels and several books of nonfiction including his acclaimed autobiography, I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp.

Panduranga Henderson

In the early 1980s, Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda formed an ashram in Agora Hills, California. There a beautiful, multi-ethnic and multi generational religious community grew up around her. The highpoint of living in this very special and loving environment took shape on Sundays when Alice would lead the community in a musical ceremony, mixing both gospel and Indian chant, to create a music she wholly invented - it was something extraordinarily powerful. The Ashram is still there today. There are still some who live there and there is still a weekly Sunday service that is open for everyone.
The folks who populated the Ashram world of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda were a very special group of people. Many of the adult members were musicians before having moved there, and many of the younger followers have become musicians and film makers as they grew older. One these amazing artists is John Panduranga Henderson.
Panduranga played organ, piano and sang with Ray Charles in the 1970's where he was a star performer in Ray's band. When he joined the Ashram, he became in essence a star performer there as well, though of course there were no 'stars'. Alice sitting at the organ would say, "Panduranga" and John would come to the front and let loose one of his amazing gospel-esque solos praising Rama or Vishnu or Jesus, Muhammad, Moses and more. He made one record under his own name - a record so obscure it's not listed on Discogs, nor found on the interweb? what?!
Today, for you dear listener, we would like to present Panduranga Henderson's "Ocean of Love." Om Shanti.

John Hooker Lee

Recorded at the Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club in Montreal, Quebec, on May 5, 1977, Black Night Is Falling finds John Lee Hooker in fine voice and backed by a driving band composed of John Garciaon guitar, Steve Jones on bass, and Larry "Wild Man" Martin on drums, with the end result being an excellent example of live Hooker at his best. Highlights include impressive romps through two of Hooker's signature tunes, "Boom Boom," which simply blazes with raw energy here, and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," which is delivered as a wonderfully paced barroom cautionary tale. This is what the live Hooker sounded like with a sympathetic band behind him, a band that luckily wasn't afraid to push him a little.

After releasing Motor City, The King of Beats Vol 1 & 2, the Ma Duke's Collection, and the Jay Dee aka King Dilla beat compilations all over the last year or so, the world is graced with yet another stellar posthumous release, a two volume beat tape from J Dilla, Dilla's Delights Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. It seems the powers that be are heeding the call for more joints from the vault. And we're not mad. Not even a little. Real hip hop fans can rejoice, in a time of watered down trap rap and shiny suits. Will the wellspring ever run dry? Are we soon to arrive at the end of this 11 year grace period with the GOAT? Time will tell, but so long as the heat keeps coming, we'll be quietly sitting in the corner blessing the air and pouring one out for the late Dilla Dawg. And the best part about Dilla's Delights Vol 1 & Vol. 2? Each one is on its own limited color vinyl (Vol 1 on green and Vol 2 on purple), and a portion of the proceeds will directly benefit each of Dilla's two daughters, whose profiles grace the album covers.

Black Rooster

New Vinyl: $15.98 Buy

Black Rooster, the EP that started it all! Originally released on Dim Mak in 2002, Black Rooster was the start of what's been an incredible career for Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince of The Kills. Now in their 15th year as a band, The Kills have been looking back and celebrating with a string of anniversary shows, retrospective features, and now this special Black Friday 2017 re-issue of their very first release. Steve Aoki, owner of Dim Mak and another artist who has proven a career with similar staying power, had some words to share on the release of Black Rooster: "Many moons ago, back in 2002, I had to make a decision whether to pursue a Ph.D. Program or continue with my label Dim Mak & after hearing a demo from The Kills and becoming the first American label to release their EP Black Rooster, I knew what path I was going to choose. They took me under their wing and I hit the road with them as their tour manager, merch guy, driver (we all took turns) and label. I'll never forget that and love Jamie and Alison forever. Thank you for believing in lil me when not many people gave two shits about Dim Mak and what we were doing. Ride or Die." Back in press in North America for the first time since it's limited 2002 release, get your hands on The Kills first ever statement to the world, and the beginning of many wild things to come.

Latyrx

2-LP gatefold on swirled red/white and blue/white vinyl, with two bonus songs and an exclusive Black Friday RSD 7" of "Lady Don't Tek No" (produced by DJ Shadow) 20 years after its initial release, the Bay Area uber-classic Latyrx: The Album - lyricists Lyrics Born and Lateef The Truthspeaker, with production from DJ Shadow, Chief Xcel and Lyrics Born - still stands as a seminal recording. It has gone on to resonate with successive generations of listeners, and influence countless artists. Recorded over a two-year period, it was the first full-length release from the legendary Solesides collective, and encapsulates a highly creative and influential time in hip-hop, frequently dubbed The Golden Age. Over the course of the original release's 42 minutes, not only can you hear Lyrics Born and Lateef literally growing into themselves as artists, but you can also hear the germination of the Solesides sound, first given birth at California's UC Davis in the early '90s, driven by brothers-in- beats-and rhymes Blackalicious and DJ Shadow. Partially by design, and partially out of necessity, Latyrx-and the Solesides crew as a whole-became trailblazers. Lyrics Born remembers (in this set's lengthy liner notes), "We really wanted to explore. New styles, new subject matter, new textures, new vocabulary. It came down to even wanting to do words in the English language that you had never heard in a rap song before. It was all about pushing." And push they did, with game-changing lyrical exercises like "Say That," "Balcony Beach," "The Wreckoning" and "The Muzappers Mix." Beyond cuts that back-in- the-day fans know from the original sequence, the two bonus tracks included in this edition are: "Looking Over A City" [produced by El-P], originally released on the Quannum compilation Spectrum. And "The Last Trumpet," which closes this new deluxe edition. Originally appearing on the 2003 Lyrics Born solo album Later That Day, it's one of Latyrx's most-realized collaborations, and one of their most overtly-politically-themed songs. This deluxe, 2-LP issue of Latyrx: The Album is a must for longtime fans and newly-initiated listeners alike, with in-depth liner notes by veteran Bay Area journalist Eric Arnold (including input from Lyrics Born and Lateef The Truthspeaker) and packaged in a gatefold format. And for Black Friday Record Store Day only, 1,000 lucky buyers will have the addition of a first-time-ever 7-Inch of the group's 1997 single "Lady Don't Tek No," produced by DJ Shadow.
