"Blue Oyster Cult, Tyranny & Mutation - Factory Sealed MFSL Gold CD"

Blue Oyster Cult/Tyranny & Mutation - Factory Sealed MFSL Gold CD Track listing 1. Transmaniacon M.C. 2. I'm on the Lamb But I Ain't No Sheep 3. Then Came the Last Days of May 4. Stairway to the Stars 5. Before the Kiss, A Redcap 6. Screams 7. She's as Beautiful as a Foot 8. Cities on Flame With Rock and Roll 9. Workshop of the Telescopes 10. Redeemed 11. Red & The Black, The 12. O.D.'d on Life Itself 13. Hot Rails to Hell 14. 7 Screaming Diz-Busters 15. Baby Ice Dog 16. Wings Wetted Down 17. Teen Archer 18. Mistress of the Salmon Salt (Quicklime Girl) Details Producer: Murray Krugman, Sandy Pearlman Distributor: n/a Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo SPAR Code: AAD Album notes Includes liner notes by Eric Bloom. All tracks have been digitally remastered. BLUE OYSTER CULT: Blue Oyster Cult: Eric Bloom (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser (vocals, guitar); Joe Bouchard (vocals, bass); Albert Bouchard (vocals, drums); Alan Lanier (guitar, keyboards). Engineers: David Lucas, Bill Robertson. TYRANNY AND MUTATION: Blue Oyster Cult: Eric Bloom (vocals, guitar, synthesizers); Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser (vocals, guitar); Joe Bouchard (vocals, keyboards, bass); Albert Bouchard (vocals, drums); Allen Lanier (guitar, keyboards). Engineer: Tim Geelan. Recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, New York. Although such future Blue Oyster Cult releases as ON YOUR FEET OR ON YOUR KNESS, SECRET TREATIES, and FIRE OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN would be more commercially successful, the band's first two releases, 1972's BLUE OYSTER CULT and 73's TYRANNY AND MUTATION are considered true metal masterpieces. While both albums contained several tracks that would become concert and fan favorites over the years, neither contained a true radio hit. Instead, each album was meant to be listened to as an entire piece of work, which made sense since both did not contain a single weak moment. In 1999, Mobile Fidelity issued both albums on a single 24-karat gold "audiophile" CD, which boasted superbly improved sonics. Both albums benefit greatly from the remastering--the dreamy space-rock of the self-titled debut is even more consuming, as proven by the standouts "Transmaniacon MC," "Before the Kiss, a Redcap," "Then Came the Last Days of May," "She's as Beautiful as a Foot," and "Redeemed." TYRANNY AND MUTATION was more heavy-metal-based than the debut, but just as gripping--"The Red & the Black," "7 Screaming Diz-Busters," "Wings Wetted Down," "Hot Rails to Hell," and "Mistress of the Salmon Salt (Quicklime Girl)" are all outstanding. Editorial reviews ...an avalanche of sonic hysteria...Blue Oyster Cult is one of the best bands America's got... Rolling Stone Magazine (04/12/1973)

"Bob Marley, Catch A Fire - MFSL Factory Sealed Gold CD - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT"

Catch A Fire - MFSL Factory Sealed Gold CD Track listing 1. Concrete Jungle 2. Slave Driver 3. 400 Years 4. Stop That Train 5. Baby We've Got A Date (Rock It Baby) 6. Stir It Up 7. Kinky Reggae 8. No More Trouble 9. Midnight Ravers Playing time: 36 min. Contributing artists: Marcia Griffiths, Rita Marley, Robbie Shakespeare Producer: Bob Marley, Chris Blackwell Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo It is nearly impossible to imagine a time when reggae was not part of the cultural currency. Though Bob Marley and the Wailers cannot be said to have invented the style, they certainly brought it to the world stage, and this album was the torch that lit the way. CATCH A FIRE hit with the force of a revelation when it was released in 1973, and though Chris Blackwell tailored its sound with a rock audience in mind, the album was still unlike anything that had ever come down the pike. Ironically, even given its relatively full production and electric guitar solos, CATCH A FIRE sounds more organic and rootsy than any of the Wailers' subsequent releases. While the percolating rhythms and burbling bass lines of the Barrett brothers, and the sweet, impeccable harmonies of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer soothe and move, CATCH A FIRE also introduces the conscious, politically minded themes that would remain at the center of Marley's songwriting for the rest of his career. "Concrete Jungle," one of the towering standout tracks, addresses the trap of inner cities, while "Slave Driver" and "400 Years" take on racial/historical issues. Yet Marley's penchant for gorgeous love songs is evident here too on his all-time classic "Stir It Up." Even after everything that followed, and the cult of idolatry that formed around Marley, this remains soulful, message-driven music that goes straight to the blood. Utterly essential. Editorial reviews 5 Stars - Indispensable Q (09/01/1994) ...lilting tunes of hypnotic character... mature, fully realized sound with a beautiful lyric sensibility...fresh, vibrant music...remarkable polish... Rolling Stone (04/12/1973) 5 stars out of 5 - ...The Wailers' masterpiece... Uncut (11/01/2001) Ranked #123 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time - [F]ronted by three extraordinary singers in Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston, and the rhythm section of Aston and Carlton Barrett defined the power and sensuality of the reggae beat.

"Bryan Adams, Reckless - MFSL Sealed Gold CD "

MFSL 24K GOLD CD Factory Sealed Track listing 1. One Night Love Affair 2. She's Only Happy When She's Dancin' 3. Run To You 4. Heaven 5. Somebody 6. Summer Of '69 7. Kids Wanna Rock 8. It's Only Love - (with Tina Turner) 9. Long Gone 10. Ain't Gonna Cry Details Playing time: 37 min. Contributing artists: Lou Gramm, Steve Smith, Tina Turner Producer: Bob Clearmountain, Bryan Adams Distributor: n/a Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo SPAR Code: AAD Album notes Personnel: Bryan Adams (vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano, percussion); Tina Turner (vocals); Keith Scott (guitar, background vocals); Tommy Mandel, Rob Sabino (keyboards); Dave Taylor, Rob Sabino (bass); Pat Steward (drums, background vocals); Mickey Curry, Steve Smith (drums); Jim Vallance (percussion); Jody Perpick, Beanbag, Lou Gramm, John (background vocals). Bryan Adams was played a great deal on the radio in 1984/5; his music was the most radio-friendly rock to have been heard in a long time. Revisiting this album more than a decade later still confirms this; if anything, hearing him less makes you like him more. The hit singles still sound consistently good - 'Somebody', 'Summer Of '69' and 'Run To You' - but although he has a clearly recognizable style and sound all the other tracks sound fresh. Adams never needs to top this record as there is enough grist on this to keep him playing live forever. Editorial reviews 'Somebody', 'Summer Of '69' and 'Run To You' - but although he has a clearly recognizable style and sound all the other tracks sound fresh. Adams never needs to top this record as there is enough grist on this to keep him playing live forever.

"Canned Heat & John Lee Hooker, "Hooker n Heat (2 CDs) - Factory Sealed MFSL 24-Karat Gold CD"

MFSL 24K GOLD CD. This Two-MFSL Double 24k CD Set was originally released as an LP in 1970 and includes the playful studio banter between musicians. This was the last recorded music of the Blues Legend, Alan "Blind Al" Wilson. John Lee Hooker wrote or co-wrote all the songs. Track listing 1. Healer, The - (with Carlos Santana & The Santana Band) 2. I'm in the Mood - (with Bonnie Raitt) 3. Baby Lee - (with Robert Cray) 4. Cuttin' Out - (with Canned Heat) 5. Think Twice Before You Go - (with Los Lobos) 6. Sally Mae - (with George Thorogood) 7. That's Alright - (with Charlie Musselwhite) 8. Rockin' Chair 9. My Dream 10. No Substitute Details Playing time: 41 min. Contributing artists: Bonnie Raitt, Canned Heat, Carlos Santana, Charlie Musselwhite, George Thorogood, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Santana Band Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo Personnel: John Lee Hooker (vocals, guitar, 12-string guitar, National Steel guitar); Bonnie Raitt (vocals, slide guitar); Roy Rogers (guitar, slide guitar); David Hidaldo (guitar, accordion); George Thorogood, Robert Cray, Carlos Santana, Cesar Rosas, Henry Vestine (guitar); Charlie Musselwhite (harmonica); Steve Berlin (saxophone); Chester Thompson (keyboards, synthesizer); Larry Taylor, Conrad Lozano, Richard Cousins (bass); Louie Perez, Scott Matthews, Fito de la Parra, Ndugu Chancler (drums); Armando Peraza (congas); Chepito Areas (timbales).

Recorded at Russian Hill Recording Studios, San Francisco, California; The Plant, Sausalito, California; Leon Haywood Studios, Los Angeles, California. Includes liner notes by John Bitzer.

Producers: Roy Rogers, Carlos Santana, Jim Gaines. Engineers: Sam Lehmer, Jim Gaines, Mark Lynette. Recorded at Russian Hill Recording Studios, San Francisco; the Plant, Sausalito, California; Leon Heywood Studios, Los Angeles, California. Includes liner notes by John Bitzer. When popular culture embraced John Lee, purists turned up their noses. They should have been pleased that the world's greatest living Delta bluesman was going to make some money before he turned up his toes. Teaming up with Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, Canned Heat (not for the first time) and others, lent Hooker's blues a contemporary gloss. It took the album to the upper reaches of the album charts around the world, brought him a number of Grammy awards and a new career in advertising. The blues is not only a healer, it drinks brandy and wears jeans. The Santana guitar solo on the title track is breathtaking and Hooker is the coolest senior citizen in the world. Editorial reviews 4 stars out of 5 - ...Proved that his blues crossed temporal and racial divides....testifying that even as a septuagenarian his power remained undiminished. Q (08/01/2000)

"Cannonball Adderley, Somethin' Else - Factoty Sealed MFSL Gold CD - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT"

MFSL 24K GOLD CD. When alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley culled together this quartet, he grabbed three champions from seemingly disparate schools to complement his flinty solos: Miles Davis, the king of cool; Art Blakey, the thundering force of hard bop; Hank Jones, a veteran of swing; and Sam Jones, a versatile bassist adaptable to nearly any setting. The results are one of Blue Note's most beloved albums. Tracks include: "Autumn Leaves" "Love For Sale" "Somthin' Else" "One For Dadd-o" "Dancing In The Dark" "Bangoon"

"Carreras Domingo Pavarotti, In Concert"

MFSL SEALED 24 Karat Gold CD CARRERAS DOMINGO PAVAROTTI IN CONCERT - MEHTA - Long Out Of Print forever and one of the rarest audiophile pressing within the music industry. LAST COPY FOREVER If you plan to get just one recording of the three tenors circus, this is the one to have, made when their now tired act was still fresh and new. All three perform both classical and popular material, all three have a few solo numbers particularly apt for showing off what is unique about them, and all three work together smoothly in the international pop medley at the end, when Luciano Pavarotti hams up "O sole mio" and the other two imitate him. Jose Carreras lacks Placido Domingo's power and Pavarotti's tonal splendor, but he has some of the best material and he does it justice. His selections include standard operatic arias, Neapolitan song ("Core 'ngrato"), and the all-time Spanish favorite, "Granada." On this CD: L'Arlesiana, opera Act 2: E La Solita Storia (Lamento Di Federico) Composed by Francesco Cilea Performed by Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra, Orchestra del Teatro Municipal di Roma with Jose Carreras Conducted by Zubin Mehta L' Africaine, grand opera in 5 acts Act 4: O Paradis Sorti de l'Onde Composed by Giacomo Meyerbeer Performed by Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra, Orchestra del Teatro Municipal di Roma with Placido Domingo Conducted by Zubin Mehta Tosca, opera Act 1: Recondita armonia Composed by Giacomo Puccini Performed by Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra, Orchestra del Teatro Municipal di Roma with Luciano Pavarotti Conducted by Zubin Mehta Dein ist mein ganzes Herz, for voice & piano (or orchestra) (from "Das Land des Lachelns") Composed by Franz Lehar Performed by Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra, Orchestra del Teatro Municipal di Roma, F.

"Cat Stevens, Tea For The Tillerman - Factory Sealed MFSL Gold CD"

Tea For the Tillerman - Factory Sealed MFSL Gold CD Track listing 1. Where Do the Children Play? 2. Hard Headed Woman 3. Wild Woman 4. Sad Lisa 5. Miles From Nowhere 6. But I Might Die Tonight 7. Longer Boats 8. Into White 9. On the Road to Find Out 10. Father and Son 11. Tea For the Tillerman Personnel: Cat Stevens (vocals, guitar); Alun Davies (guitar); John Rostein (violin); John Ryan (bass); Harvey Burns (drums). This is a limited edition digipak. Personnel: Cat Stevens (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Alun Davies (guitar); John Rostein (violin); John Ryan (bass); Harvey Burns (drums). Producer: Paul Samwell-Smith. Reissue producer: Bill Levenson. Digitally remastered by Bill Levenson (December 1999, Sterling Sound, New York, New York). TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN is one of Cat Stevens's finest albums, and a gem in the crown of early 1970s singer/songwriterdom. Stevens manages to have his cake and eat it too, simultaneously achieving pop accessibility and artistic relevance. While inviting rhythms (buoyed by Stevens's dynamic acoustic strumming) and pop hooks abound, the feel is decidedly gentle and spare. Apart from the occasional string section, Stevens is accompanied only by a three-piece band as he sings his introspective lyrics with appreciable fervor. While there are some relatively conventional love songs here ("Hard Headed Woman," "Wild World"), the most memorable moments come when Stevens's lyrics venture further afield. "Father and Son" is a poignant but realistic and unsentimental portrait of the generation gap, capable of reducing any given dad or junior to tears. "On the Road to Find Out" and "But I Might Die Tonight" reflect Stevens's existential dilemmas, and the resulting spiritual quest that would later lead him to embrace the Islamic faith. The graceful beauty of arrangements, performances, and songs makes TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN a folk-rock classic.

Morning Has Broken Contributing artists: Rick Wakeman Producer: Paul Samwell-Smith Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo Following in the tradition of his previous effort, with a similar cover design and feel, Cat continued his painful journey through life. Even then, there was a sadness linked to his happy songs such as "Moonshadow," "How Can I Tell You" and "Tuesday's Dead." Our favourite school hymn was also given the treatment - how did he manage to make such a happy verse sound so sad? The answer, as we have all seen, was in himself; he was a rare songwriter but he was mostly a very troubled soul, something he seems to have resolved through his conversion to the Muslim faith. He won, we lost him.

Mother's Lament Details Producer: Felix Pappalardi Distributor: n/a Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Mixed SPAR Code: n/a Album notes The remastered DISRAELI GEARS is also available in its entirety on the 4 disc set THOSE WERE THE DAYS. Cream: Eric Clapton (guitar, vocals); Jack Bruce (bass, vocals, harmonica); Ginger Baker (drums, vocals). Recorded at Atlantic Studios, New York, New York in May 1967. Recorded in the U.S. in a three-and-a-half day flurry of inspired activity before the band members' visas expired, DISRAELI GEARS continued to present the legendary, unprecedented rock power-trio acrobatics pioneered by Cream on their debut FRESH CREAM. The acronymic "SWLABR (She Walked Like a Bearded Rainbow)" for instance, featured some of the band's most fiery instrumental interplay. The album, with its eye-catching day-glo cover, was produced by Felix Pappalardi (who went on to co-found the Cream-inspired Mountain) and once again featured collaborations between singer/bassist Jack Bruce and lyric poet Pete Brown. The Top Five hit "Sunshine Of Your Love," however, was written by Brown and Eric Clapton. That iconic riff-rocker, along with the slinky, bluesy "Strange Brew," and the mythographic, wah-wah stomper "Tales of Brave Ulysses" was a staple of rock radio forever after, making DISRAELI GEARS one of the seminal '60s rock albums. Despite the good humor suggested by the jokey a capella reading of "Mother's Lament," however, all was far from peace and love in the Cream camp at the time, as internal and external pressures broke up the band by the end of 1968.

Love and Affection Details Playing time: 62 min. Producer: Robert John "Mutt" Lange, Robert John Lange Distributor: n/a Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo Def Leppard: Joe Elliott (vocals); Steve Clark, Phil Collen (guitar); Rick Savage (bass); Rick Allen (drums). Additional personnel: The Bankrupt Brothers (background vocals). Recorded at Wisseloord Studios, Hilversum, Holland; Windmill Lane Studio 2, Dublin, Ireland; Studio Des Dames, Paris, France. Four years after PYROMANIA, Def Leppard were a comparative write-off. Dismissed by critics, seemingly dogged by bad luck, with drummer Rick Allen losing an arm in a car accident, HYSTERIA had to be an album to turn heads. In retrospect, it sounded like the first true hard rock record for the CD generation. Ambitious arrangements and remixes on songs such as "Rocket" and "Armaggedon It," a crisp single in "Animal," and a dense paean to love with "Love Bites," all bets were off. Def Leppard had created an intriguing language of ideas that still speaks volumes more than a decade on. Editorial reviews 4 stars out of 5 -- Vocals are stacked on top of each other until they scrape the ionosphere; guitars are primped within an inch of their lives....Hugely influential... Q 4 stars out of 5 -- [T]he original singles still have the same sugar rush... Rolling Stone

"Def Leppard, Pyromania - Sealed MFSL 24 Karat Gold CD - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT"

MFSL 24K GOLD CD Ultradisc Track listing 1. Rock! Rock! Till You Drop 2. Photograph 3. Stagefright 4. Too Late For Love 5. Die Hard The Hunter 6. Foolin' 7. Rock Of Ages 8. Comin' Under Fire 9. Action! Not Words 10. Billy's Got A Gun Details Playing time: 44 min. Producer: Robert John "Mutt" Lange Distributor: n/a Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo SPAR Code: AAD Album notes Def Leppard: Joe Elliot (vocals); Steve "Steamin" Clark, Phil Collen, Pete Willis (guitar); Rick Savage (bass); Rick Allen (drums). Additional personnel: John Kongos, Booker T. Roffin, Charile (keyboards); The Leppardettes (background vocals). Recorded at Park Gates Studios, Battle, Sussex, England and Battery Studios, London, England. Although many music fans were convinced that Def Leppard would become hard rock's next big band, few could have predicted the massive across-the-boards success that its third record, 1983's PYROMANIA, achieved. Many wondered why it was taking the group so long to release a follow-up to 1981's HIGH 'N' DRY, but the finished product was well worth the wait. Not only did it become one of the year's best-selling albums and made the band instant U.S. arena headliners, but it has remained a consistent seller ever since (by 1994, it had reached nine million units in the U.S. alone). The songwriting and overall sound was more streamlined and succinct this time around--while there are guitar riffs galore, the songs have more of a pop feel. Founding guitarist Pete Willis left during the recording, replaced by Phil Collen, who fit in perfectly with the band. The album features such mega-hits as "Photograph," "Rock of Ages," and "Foolin'," as well as a couple of other tracks that could have easily been singles as well, "Rock Rock (Till You Drop)" and "Too Late for Love." PYROMANIA remains one of the best and most popular hard-rock recordings of the '80s.
