One of my favorite records to start off the day. I’m guessing I’m not alone in my belief that Pink Moon belongs in every record collection. Essential!

THELONIOUS MONK – LIVE IN PARIS 1961

Get It On Vinyl — http://bit.ly/2Z8pheU

Ltd. 500 Numbered Copies

Affordable audiophile jazz, first time on vinyl!
This 1961 performance sounds GREAT, guaranteed to satisfy any Monk afficionado. The concert was sourced directly from analog tape, the vinyl itself is high grade, audiophile quality. We can’t recommend this title enough, both for the hardcore jazzbo or those looking to start their jazz stacks.

Backed by the dynamic lineup of Monk’s Dream and Criss-Cross, the inimitable Monk plays some of his most famous originals for a frenzied crowd at the Paris Olympia. 

 Avec l’énergique quatuor de Monk’s Dream et Criss-Cross, l’inimitable Monk joue quelques-unes de ses plus célèbres compositions devant une foule en délire à l’Olympia de Paris.

Paying tribute to Rutger Hauer, one of my favorite movie bad guys.  Might watch the movie later, but the soundtrack comes first.  The Blade Runner soundtrack is one of my “reference” records, that small pile that I use whenever I test out a new cartridge or other new gear.  Great sounding, very dynamic recording.

First ever vinyl reissue
2019 (Ltd. 500 Numbered Copies)

French weirdo synth prog! 
Originally released in 1978, French-language Québécois band Eden’s only album is a fine example of unusually synth-heavy symphonic prog rock featuring several ornate instrumentals, including a colourful cover of Fauré’s famous Pavane

Originalement paru en 1978, l’unique album de la formation québécoise Eden offre un rock progressif symphonique particulièrement riche en synthétiseurs avec plusieurs morceaux instrumentaux, dont une version audacieuse de la célèbre Pavane de Fauré

Genetic Control ‎– First Impressions
(Ltd. 500 Numbered Copies)
Get It On Vinyl

Coffee, Smoke, Hardcore
Prior to this vinyl release, Genetic Control’s  recorded output was limited to a 7″ and a CD compilation of previously unreleased tracks. GREAT slab! If an audiophile-quality pressing of a hardcore record exists, this would be it.

First ever official reissue of the exceedingly rare and hard-to-find First Impressions EP by Montreal punk band Genetic Control released in 1984. This expanded 35th anniversary edition contains 9 previously unreleased tracks from the band’s archives for a total of 14 fast and snotty 80s hardcore tunes !
