Record Store Day 2018
The producer’s own mixes – recently rediscovered - of his seminal EP, expanded with bonus tracks into a 2LP set, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.
When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technically and creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building while modestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his own label, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accounts for why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother, Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”
Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the mother of his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 working on an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected and whose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone not from his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.
The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that he would take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes of the songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album and restores his vision for the project. “Straight from the mothafuckin’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound he was going for on the EP’s intro. It is buttressed by unreleased tracks and is presented in two versions: LP one is the EP as it was originally released; LP 2 is the alternate version that Dilla had for the project. Author Ronnie Reese expands upon his original liner notes to further tell Dilla’s story, in a booklet complete with never before published photographs from the Ruff Draft photo session.

The California EP pays homage to Wes’ first full-length release, Florida, where he spent much of his youth. The sonics on California share a similar tone: slow, vibey, & melancholic, a bit of a departure from the sound he has been known for in recent years. The vibe of the EP is somewhat dark, contrary to the warm and carefree lifestyle one would expect of someone living in California. This may very well be a reflection of the bleak underside of fame & excess in Hollywood. The EP is much more than just a handful of tracks; it's an introspective body of work. Diplo has recruited industry heavyweights and newcomers alike, including Santigold, Dram, Lil’ Yachty, MØ, Goldlink and more, as well as LA-based artist, February James, who was commissioned to create inspired portraits of each of the artists that appear on the EP, housed in the gatefold jacket.

The Tomb of the Cybermen launched the 1967/8 series of Doctor Who. Ascribed a legendary status by the fans, the serial was believed lost for many years until a full print of the series was recovered from Hong Kong in 1992. The action of The Tomb of the Cybermen follows directly on from that of the preceding serial The Evil of the Daleks, with the Doctor and Jamie welcoming the newly orphaned Victoria aboard the TARDIS. Commissioned as Doctor Who and the Cybermen Planet, this was the third encounter between the Doctor and his half-human, half-machine foes. It was co-written by Kit Pedler, who devised the Cybermen in The Tenth Planet, and Gerry Davis, the story editor who had helped develop them. Patrick Troughton faces the dreaded Cybermen in the digitally remastered soundtrack of the classic BBC TV story, with linking narration by Frazer Hines. 2 hours of audio over 2LP presented in a gatefold sleeve. Features brand new artwork + pressed on coloured 180g heavyweight vinyl. Also includes bespoke sleeve notes and never before seen behind the scenes photography from the filming

Double Date is an independent British horror film that was released to great applause in 2017. The film was written by and starred Danny Morgan and was the debut movie directed by Benjamin Barfoot. Ben approached Goat in 2016 asking them if they would be interested in appearing in the film he was making as he had a club scene where he wanted to feature a band playing live. And when he and Danny were coming up with the idea for the movie they had Goat’s ‘World Music’ album on repeat and it was the band's infectious tribal grooves that he wanted in the scene. During filming of Goat’s scene Ben and the band bonded and he invited Goat to score the whole film, so their unique DNA would be running throughout the whole picture. The band liked the idea and decided to take the challenge on. And we at Rocket are very excited to be able to release the complete score Goat created for the film on a special ltd edition ‘pool of blood’ coloured vinyl 10” LP especially for Record Store Day 2018. The album contains all the original music Goat created to soundtrack the film plus the music they made for the trailer. The score also contains a different version of Goat’s live anthem ‘Run To Your Mama’ that was especially created for the film.

“The Friends of Eddie Coyle” may not be Dave Grusin's best known or most celebrated score but, like both book and film, it's a quiet classic." - David Toop Dave Grusin's cult funky soundtrack for Peter Yates' 1973 superb crime movie, 'The Friends of Eddie Coyle,' was never released at the time. It is finally out 45 years after for RSD 2018 on Wewantsounds, remastered from the original tapes with one bonus alternate take and featuring a new essay by leading UK writer and musician David Toop. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, the release also features a stunning cover by highly sought-after Alternative Movie Poster illustrator Oliver Barrett. The music composed here by Dave Grusin for this superb film is both funky and jazzy and on a par with Quincy Jones and Lalo Schifrin's best soundtracks of the early 70s. Peter Yates who had directed 'Bullitt' knew who to go for when it came to outstanding musicians and Grusin was certainly one of the best young composers in Hollywood at the time. He would sign another more famous score in 1975 with "3 Days of the Condor" but The Eddie Coyle soundtrack recorded two years before is even more stunning. It plays like a hypnotic slow-burning suite and is performed by the cream of the LA jazz scene including John Guerin, Chuck Rainey, Tom Scott, Bud Shank and percussionist Emil Richards. Amazingly the score never got released on vinyl when the film first came out in 1973 and Wewantsounds are now proud to make it available on vinyl for the first time and on CD. First Ever LP release. Remastered from the original tapes with one bonus track. Liner Notes by UK journalist and musician David Toop. Gatefold Sleeve with Artwork by famed Alternative Movie Poster designer Oliver Barrett.

In 1965, a young Tim Hardin left New York City for the 'California Dreamin' of Los Angeles. Like many singer/songwriters of the time, he landed at the folk den of the famed music venue, The Troubadour. Holding court there was noted hot L.A. record producer, Jim Dickson. A staff producer for such labels as World Pacifc, Elektra and Warner Bros Records, Jim had access to the World Pacific Recording Studio. The studio where the likes of Sam Cooke, the Beach Boys, Ravi Shankar, Byrds, etc, first recorded. Jim pursued Tim to lay down some of his songs at the studio, providing a back up group with Tim on piano. Recorded on 1/2", 3 track tape, these recordings have never been heard since they were recorded and three of the four Tim Hardin songs have never been copyright or published until now.

Steve Kalinich is best known for his association with The Beach Boys, with whom he collaborated on songs such as “Little Bird” and “Be Still.” His songwriting partnership with Brian Wilson extends into his solo work, including “A Friend Like You,” the duet between Brian and Paul McCartney. His lyrics have always been imbued with a strong affinity for the transcendental, and this album is no exception, with the music ranging from dark Jim Carroll/Leonard Cohen-ish lamentations (“Things You Cannot Control”) to bluesy r&b rock (“Here With You”) and emphatic rockers (“13th Level” and the title track). Scrambled Eggs is the follow-up record to his first solo album, A WORLD OF PEACE which was produced by Brian Wilson in 1967. It features a dozen new songs by Stevie, cowritten with friends like Dylan LeBlanc, Tara Holloway, Ellis Hooks, Robert “Butch” Johnson, and producer Jon Tiven.

The album's title, Granfalloon, is a term created by the late Kurt Vonnegut to describe a bunch of people who pretend to be an affinity group without having any actual affinity for each other. We're uncertain if that is suppose to refer to factions inside Laser Pace, but no matter. The album is probably the strangest pieces of wax dripped by Takoma (apart from Charlie Nothing, natch) and seems wildly out of synch with the label's presumed focus. But is a goddamn monster of odd charm, no two ways about it.

Self-titled debut album of experimental band Latin Playboys. First time on vinyl. Latin Playboys is a musical group comprising David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake, active in the 1990s. The band began with a series of demo recordings made by Hidalgo on a home cassette tape 4-track machine. The demos were intended for Hidalgo's main group, Los Lobos, but producer/keyboardist Froom thought the demos were interesting enough on their own to justify a new band. With Los Lobos member Pérez, and Froom's frequent production partner Blake, Latin Playboys was formed.
The group released two albums, Latin Playboys, in 1994, and Dose, in 1999. The songs "Manifold de Amour" and "Forever Night Shade Mary," both from the 1994 self-titled debut album, are featured on the soundtrack album for the 1995 film Desperado.
