Sarah Baker + Women Sing Waits + a Christmas Miracle

One of my favorite people in the whole wide world is Sarah Baker.
Besides being a world class human being, she is a tremendous musician.
Sarah is a fantastic pianist, a great songwriter, and a soulful vocalist.
There’s great news: Sarah has released a new album, "Baker’s Dozen."
We have it on CD for only ten bucks, and I totally recommend it.
Music is the tonic we need to stay healthy and focused in these challenging times,
and this new album lovingly co-produced by Sarah and Allen Sudduth is a great soundtrack for 2020.
Call us and make sure we haven’t sold out (they have been selling well!) we can put one on hold for you.


Sarah’s previous album, "Maybe Someday" was released in 1997.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good news : we have gotten more copies of the new Tom Waits tribute album, "Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits"
back in stock on CD and LP. It’s a wonderful project conceived by musician/author/producer, Warren Zanes.
If you’re old enough to remember the 1980’s Warren had a cool band called The Del Fuegos. We sold their records.
Anyhoo, the new album is great. It is a unique compilation full of fresh interpretations of songs by the legendary Tom Waits. Aimee Mann, Joseph, Patty Griffin, Rosanne Cash, Phoebe Bridgers, Corinne Bailey Rae, Angie McMahon, Courtney Marie Andrews, and more each put their own unique spin on the gravel-voiced songwriter’s work.

One of the great things that happened in the 2010’s was the SF Giants finally won the World Series!
Whether you’re a Giants fan or an Athletic supporter, you had to like Tim Lincecum, right?

On November 2, 2010 the San Francisco Giants led by Tim Lincecum did something that previous Giants teams could not do.
All the great players of the past: Mays, Marichal, McCovey, Bonds, Mitchell and more could not bring a trophy home to San Francisco.

That’s why we are so honored and humble to share with you our Christmas miracle.

It happened on Christmas Eve just 5 days ago.

See You On The Avenue

NEW RELEASES Out December 13, 2019 (now):

The film follows Ben Jaffe of New Orleans’ famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band as he seeks to fulfill his late father’s dream of retracing their musical roots to the shores of Cuba in search of the indigenous music that gave birth to New Orleans jazz. A Tuba to Cuba celebrates the triumph of the human spirit expressed through the universal language of music and challenges us to resolve to build bridges, not walls.



Jagged Little Pill
Original Broadway cast recording. Jagged Little Pill is a rock musical with a book by Academy Award winner Diablo Cody, music by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard and lyrics by Morissette. The musical is inspired by Morissette’s 1995 album of the same name.



NRPS
Recorded Live to 2-Track at New York City’s Academy of Music. • Previously unissued performance featuring Buddy Cage on pedal steel guitar. • With guest guitarist David Rea (Gordon Lightfoot, Fariport Convention). • Taken directly off the master reels in the NRPS Archive and mastered by David Glasser at Airshow Mastering. • Liner notes by NRPS Historian Rob Bleetstein with rare photos. The New Riders of The Purple Sage were regarded as America’s favorite psychedelic cowboy band in the early 1970s. What had started as a chance for the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia to learn pedal steel guitar as he accompanied singer John “Marmaduke” Dawson and his unique songbook of classic Americana tunes, had become it’s own entity by 1972. With the addition of Buddy Cage on pedal steel to replace Garcia, 1972 saw two studio releases in the forms of Powerglide and Gypsy Cowboy. Emerging from the shadow of the Grateful Dead after opening countless shows for them, not only where the New Riders becoming a bona fide live act to contend with, but their performances were earning them a loyal and rabid following on the East Coast, especially in the New York Tri-State area. Captured at the late show from November 23, 1972, at the Academy of Music, Thanksgiving In New York City features the band in the midst of an energetic and highly regarded tour. Along with Dawson classics like “Henry, ” “Portland Woman, ” and “Last Lonely Eagle, ” lead guitarist David Nelson and bassist Dave Torbert also bring some Bluegrass (“She’s No Angel”) and R&B (“I Don’t Need No Doctor, ” “Willie And The Hand Jive”) to the mix. An evening with New Riders of the Purple Sage in downtown Manhattan offered music fans a musical panorama that continually upped the ante of the potential of country meets rock with a psychedelic twist. This concert from 1972 began what would be an annual engagement over the Thanksgiving holiday in New York City for the following three years. It was a family vibe of a whole other nature when the New Riders came to town. Crank it up and enjoy the musical feast that is Thanksgiving In New York City!



TOOL
Expanded Book Edition. Fear Inoculum is the long awaited 2019 album from Tool, and the band’s first new album in 13 years. The Expanded Book Edition includes five 3D lenticular cards featuring exclusive graphics, 56 page booklet with additional art and an access card to download the groundbreaking immersive visual experience, “Recusant Ad Infinitum.”

What a voice: holiday release featuring folk legend Judy Collins joined by Norwegian singer-songwriter Jonas Fjeld and North Calina bluegrass revivalists Chatham County Line. Blending folk, bluegrass, country and traditional music, these three powerhouse musical figures have crafted an unconventional holiday release centering on wintry vignettes rather than carols and hymns yet it carries the spirit of the holidays throughout. Fjeld and CCL have toured together and recorded two albums together both of which went gold in Norway!



Blake Shelton: Fully Loaded !
collection from the country music vocalist. The album features four new songs – including Blake’s #1 hit, “God’s Country” – along with nine of his previous hits.

He has also received eight American Country Awards, three People’s Choice Awards, two American Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award, and one iHeartRadio Music Award, among others.



Flaming Lips: LIVE at Red Rocks

The Flaming Lips (Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins, Derek Brown, Jake Ingalls, Matt Kirksey and Nicholas Ley) were accompanied by a 69-piece orchestra and 56-strong Chorus. The performance was conducted by the internationally celebrated conductor Andre de Ridder. The Flaming Lips performed the 12-track album in it’s original sequence with new arrangements for each song that use the orchestra and chorus to great effect. This entire concert was produced by The Flaming Lips, Scott Booker and their long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann. This resulting live album is being released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Soft Bulletin, originally released in 1999. The album was the band’s breakthrough moment and featured the hit singles “Race For The Prize” and “Waitin’ for a Superman”.



Pink Floyd : The Later Years
Pink Floyd built their legend starting in the late ’60s and soared into the stratosphere in the ’70s, but their later period is no artistic or commercial slouch. The music created by David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason from 1987 onwards has generated record sales of more than 40 million worldwide, and fully ensconced Pink Floyd in rock music’s pantheon.

NEW RELEASES Out November 22, 2019 (now)


Leonard Cohen: Thanks For The Dance
posthumous release from the late singer/songwriter. Produced by Leonard’s son Adam, and engineered and mixed by Michael Chaves, the duo also worked together with Leonard on the 2016 album You Want It Darker. Thanks for the Dance is not a commemorative collection of B sides and outtakes, but an unexpected harvest of new songs, exciting and vital, a continuation of the master’s final work. This remarkable album was made in many places. Javier Mas, the great Spanish laud player who accompanied Leonard on stage for the last eight years of touring, flew from Barcelona to Los Angeles to capture the artist’s spirit on Leonard’s own guitar. In Berlin, at a musical event called People Festival, Adam invited friends and comrades to lend their ears and talents. Damien Rice and Leslie Feist sang. Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire played bass. Bryce Dessner of The National played guitar, the composer Dustin O’Halloran played piano.



David Byrne on Broadway !
David Byrne’s sold out international tour in support of his first-ever chart-topping album, American Utopia, was the most critically-lauded tour of 2018, with fans and critics comparing it to his legendary Stop Making Sense tour with the Talking Heads. As an encore, David Byrne will be unveiling David Byrne’s American Utopia on Broadway, which will play a strictly limited engagement on Broadway at the intimate Hudson Theatre from October 4, 2019 through January 19, 2020, with the official opening set for October 20, 2019. In conjunction with the show launch, we will be releasing the original cast recording from the show which includes songs from American Utopia along with songs from Talking Heads and his solo career.



Beck: Hyperspace
Hyperspace’s new dimensions in sound are the result of Beck’s most collaborative efforts to date. Seven of the album’s 11 tracks – including singles “Uneventful Days” and “Saw Lightning” – features co-writing/co-production from Pharrell Williams. “See Through” is co-written/co-produced by frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin, “Stratosphere” features back-up from Chris Martin, the album’s title track features guest vocals from Terrell Hines, and “Die Waiting” features backing vocals from Sky Ferreira.



Gang Starr: One of the Best Yet
the seventh and final album from iconic hip hop duo Gang Starr. The 16 track album, their first since 2003, was produced entirely by DJ Premier with vocals from the one and only Guru, recorded before his untimely passing in 2010. Album guest features include Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5′ 9″, Ne-Yo, M.O.P., Jeru The Damaja, Big Shugg, and Freddie Foxx. Lead single “Family and Loyalty” features vocals from J. Cole. One Of The Best Yet is a momentous album in hip hop for this year or any year.



Coldplay: Everyday Life
is the eighth studio album by seven time Grammy winners Coldplay. The album is divided into two halves: Sunrise and Sunset. Everyday Life includes the singles “Orphans” and “Arabesque”.



Rod Stewart With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra :You’re In My Heart
pairs classic vocal tracks from his most popular songs with new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The result is a timeless record that retains the power, soul and passion that have fueled Stewart’s legacy from the start. The album also features a new version of the hit song “It Takes Two” featuring pop-star Robbie Williams and a brand-new song “Stop Loving Her Today” by Rod Stewart.



JIMI !
Over the course of four extraordinary years, Jimi Hendrix placed his indelible stamp upon popular music with breathtaking velocity. Measured alongside his triumphs at Monterey Pop and Woodstock, Hendrix’s legendary Fillmore East concerts illustrated a critical turning point in a radiant career filled with indefinite possibilities.
Songs For Groovy Children assembles all four historic debut concerts by Jimi Hendrix’s newly assembled Band of Gypsys at New York’s Fillmore East on New Years Eve 1969 and New Years Day 1970.Presented in their original performance sequence and encompassing 43 tracks across 5 CDs, the set boasts over two dozen tracks that have either never before been released commercially.
Newly mixed and restored in sequence without edits, fans can finally hear Hendrix, Cox and Miles blast through their genre-defying sets that included freshly written songs like “Earth Blues” and “Stepping Stone,” as well as Experience favorites inclusive of “Foxey Lady,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Wild Thing,” “Hey Joe” and “Purple Haze.” Additionally, exciting new versions of Howard Tate’s “Stop,” “Steal Away,” by Jimmy Hughes and a searing “Bleeding Heart” by Elmore James highlighted the command that the trio had over blues & R&B music.
The lavish package is filled with unseen photos and remembrances from bassist Billy Cox and liner notes by author/journalist/filmmaker Nelson George. Songs For Groovy Children was produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott – the trio that has overseen every project for Experience Hendrix since 1995. The box set was mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Bernie Grundman.



Grateful Dead: Ready or Not
LIVE archive release featuring nine unreleased performances from the early ’90s, presenting what the next Grateful Dead studio album may have been. The collection focuses on the best unreleased live versions of these late-period gems, all mastered from the original digital soundboard tapes. Recorded live between 1992 and 1995, Ready Or Not spotlights performance by the final Grateful Dead lineup: Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, and new keyboardist Vince Welnick.



The Irishman Soundtrack
Martin Scorsese’s latest gangster flick, The Irishman, continues the tradition of pairing fantastic needle drops with his storytelling, making for an aural landscape that uses songs to help accentuate jumps in time and location. Working in consultation with longtime collaborator Robbie Robertson, his latest film contains numerous songs both popular and obscure that help tell the story of Frank Sheeran.



Danny Brown : Uknowhatimsayin¿
marks a buoyant new chapter in Danny’s career, a transitional and celebratory moment. His profile has grown since Atrocity and now armed with a cable TV show and a co-sign from one of rap’s icons, we will look to solidify his positioning as a ubiquitous entertainer, independent rap hero, and one of the essential cultural voices of this era, while still retaining the edgy, maverick style that makes him a fan-favorite.



Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits
is a unique compilation full of fresh interpretations of songs by the legendary Tom Waits. Aimee Mann, Joseph, Patty Griffin, Rosanne Cash, Phoebe Bridgers, Corinne Bailey Rae, Angie McMahon, Courtney Marie Andrews, and more each put their own unique spin on the gravel-voiced songwriter’s work. “… to hear it all through these women’s voices: for me, this is where the whole thing was delivered. I didn’t just want to go to church, I wanted to go to their church. In much the way Burt Bacharach songs often seem most fully themselves in the hands of Dionne Warwick, or Dusty Springfield, or Jackie DeShannon, The Shirelles, Aretha, or Karen Carpenter. Or the way standards feel so fully standard in Ella Fitzgerald’s rendering of the material. The Waits songs I was hearing through these women were breathing differently and deeply. In just the way Dylan cuts the definitive version but never stakes out the song’s territory in a way that leaves no room for majestic covers, the recordings I was gathering were showing me the remarkable strength, the resonance of Waits’ stuff. No one took ownership of the material, it was all on loan, still belonged to Tom Waits. But what a series of loans! And that’s how it is with the very, very best songs. It all brought me back to the Tom Waits I’d begun to see an outline of as a young man, back to the Waits my mother brought into the family dining room. That strange and beautiful character who seemed to belong to no one. Who I now believe belongs to us all.” – Warren Zanes, producer “Tom is a true original as a songwriter, singer and arranger. There just is no one like him. Beneath some of the layers of sound and his truly unique vocal phrasing, are some of the most beautiful and heartfelt songs I’ve ever heard. After some great creative discussions many years back with an old publishing colleague, the concept of focusing on the sheer beauty of these songs by having them interpreted by a group of amazing artists with stunning voices, was a must do project. Fast forward fifteen years later, we were thrilled with the passion and enthusiasm these artists showed when we approached them with the idea, which you can hear in their performances. Truly a musical celebration.” – Scott Robinson, executive producer



Mary Lambert: Grief Creatures
Six Years in the making. Grief Creature is Mary’s most intimate and honest masterwork.



The Rev. Scott H. Biram
Known as The Dirty Ol’ One Man Band, Scott H. Biram has a deceiving penchant for songs about God, religion, and spirituality. Each of the releases across his Bloodshot career has some representation of religious fervor and appreciation for traditional Gospel music – just in some cases, Biram spins them in the perverse, hellbound way that only he can. Sold Out to the Devil is a collection of this particular God-fearing side of Biram.



Motherless Brooklyn Soundtrack
Thom Yorke & Flea, Wynton Marsalis, and Daniel Pemberton are some of the musical heavyweights whose music is featured on the film’s soundtrack. Included on the album are two versions of the song “Daily Battles,” each performed by musical icons of modern music. Thom Yorke (who wrote the song) along with Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Atoms For Peace) performs a sparse and emotionally stunning version. The other version of “Daily Battles” was arranged and performed by jazz trumpet icon Wynton Marsalis, who, along with his hand-picked quintet of heavy-hitter-jazz-stalwarts delivers an instant jazz standard version of the song that conjures images of the 1950’s-era gin-soaked Harlem jazz club seen in the film.



Lee Konitz: Old Songs New
Nonagenarian saxophonist Lee Konitz has been a featured soloist for many decades and has become a legend for his intriguing contributions to many well-known jazz dates with a wide variety of ensembles. Woodwind player, composer and arranger Ohad Talmor has been an important part of Konitz’s musical sphere for the past three decades, providing the elder statesman numerous opportunities to contribute his celebrated alto sound. // Konitz and Talmor have reunited a version of the Lee Konitz Nonet to release a new recording, Old Songs New, where the unique ensemble of winds, strings and percussion comes together to anchor Konitz’s flights of fancy.
