Terror Vision Records could not be more excited to announce the first time reissue of the new wave cult classic self-titled release from And Also the Trees. It originally came out in 1984 and has never had a US release, despite it being critically acclaimed AND produced by Lol Tolhurst of The Cure. These tracks are remastered from the original tapes. But that's not all. For the first time EVER on vinyl, we're including as a bonus the demo they recorded in 1982 with production help from Robert Smith of The Cure and Mike Hedges. This demo has only ever been available on cassette and goes for hundreds online. We are thrilled to be bringing this to vinyl for the first time ever.

The hard-hitting, melodic heavy metal band Alcatrazz celebrate RSD Drops 2021 with the release of a colored double vinyl edition of their latest studio offering, Born Innocent. The 13-track opus, having previously only been available on CD and digital formats and never on vinyl will be a must-have collectible for anyone who considers themselves a fan of rock (pun intended!)

Their first studio venture since 1986’s Dangerous Game. Alongside the unique vocal prowess and range of star frontman and founding member Graham Bonnet, Born Innocent also features fellow founding members Jimmy Waldo and Gary Shea. And from the classic album art, featuring the mighty rock itself, Born Innocent is a journey into the sort of heavy, melodic and supremely articulated hard rock that is a cornerstone of the likes of Rainbow and the Michael Schenker Group, territory Alcatrazz successfully strode in the ‘80s before going on hiatus.

Born Innocent was produced by Jimmy Waldo with Giles Lavery and mixed and mastered by Andy Haller and features many former stars from Graham's long career. Guest appearances include Chris Impellitteri, who wrote the music and played all guitars on the arpeggio-powered “Born Innocent”, with Bonnet’s vocals soaring to old-school heights, as did Bob Kulick for the majestic “I Am The King”. Virtuoso Japanese guitar maestro Nozomu Wakai similarly wrote and played guitars on the double-kick steel-plated Irish warrior ode “Finn McCool”, while the six-string legend that is Steve Vai wrote “Dirty Like The City”, with Bonnet once again powerfully hitting notes that are beyond the business of most humans.

As fans will immediately hear, Alcatrazz are back doing what only they can do with Born Innocent, delivering quality hard rock with genuine storyteller lyrics, virtuoso performances and an added layer of modern ‘heavy’ that underscores the melodic excellence. Don’t miss out on this piece of rock history.

Jazz and blues pianist/vocalist/composer Mose Allison has been described as "one of the finest songwriters of 20th century blues." This 1978 live recording features Allison playing his usual repertoire, in a trio with bassist Tom Rutley (bass) and drummer Jerry Granelli (drums). Since Allison only recorded one album during the years 1973 to 1981, this well-recorded live set is quite valuable.

Most of the material is fairly familiar, but the singer's spirited delivery and interplay with the audience make this recording rare. It ain't about technology, it's about these transcendent versions of Allison classics performed with sidemen who get it, for people who dig it -- the real deal. Highlights include "Wildman on the Loose," "Swinging Machine," "I Live the Life I Love," "I Ain't Got Nothin' But the Blues" and "Your Mind Is on Vacation." Recorded Live March 26, 1978 at the Showboat Lounge, Silver Springs, MD.

Deluxe edition of their album 20/20 Vision featuring new artwork and 5 new songs. Anti-Flag is a political punk band, which is obvious from their name alone. But over the course of 12 albums across more than 25 years together, they’ve rarely set their sights on singular individuals in songs. Unlike their punk predecessors in the 80s, who made targets of Reagan and his cronies, Anti-Flag has always opted not to date their work with current references, instead focusing on fighting ongoing oppression and dismantling deeply rooted systems of injustice. But on their new album, 20/20 Vision, the band drew a big, fat line in the sand.

Originally called the "Berliner Jazztage" (Berlin Jazz Days, until 1980 when the name was changed), it was founded in 1964 in West Berlin by the Berliner Festspiele. Whereas famous US jazz celebrities set the tone during the first decades, the Berlin Jazz Festival increasingly has presented artists from all around the globe, with an increasing emphasis on contemporary European jazz. Also appearing that year were Herbie Mann, Carla Thomas, Don Cherry with Pharoah Sanders, Don Ellis (who makes a guest appearance here), Gary Burton, Elvin Jones, Muddy Waters with Otis Spann and numerous other jazz luminaries. The festival's artistic concept has been "to document, support, and validate trends in jazz, and to mirror the diversity of creative musical activity. On transparent purple vinyl.

Few first wave California punk bands burned as brightly as The Avengers. Formed in San Francisco during 1977's Summer of Hate, they swiftly ascended to the top of the West Coast scene and earned the coveted support slot for The Sex Pistols' final concert in January 1978. The Avengers' frenetic performance at Winterland made quite an impression on Pistols guitarist Steve Jones who offered to record the group.From the Jones produced sessions, "The American In Me" remains an unmistakable anthem. Embodying the punk zeitgeist, singer Penelope Houston fiercely declares, "Ask not what you can do for your country, what's your country been doing to you."The original White Noise EP version of "The American In Me" is paired with "Uh-Oh," featuring Jones on piano and bravely demonstrating Me Too sentiments four decades earlier. Comp-only track "Cheap Tragedies" closes this reimagined lost-single set.The American In Me perfectly captures The Avengers' dynamic power-frustration, style and passion forged into some of the most pivotal sounds of punk's formative era.

The lyricism of Chet Baker, one of the most important post-war trumpet player, cannot be doubted because Chet in his musical expressions remains as singer and musicians essentially romantic. He fits beautifully into a context created around him and for him, a context that finds in the sonority of his trumpet or in the opacity of his voice a leading element, dominator and at the same time attractive and fascinating. Chet with the valid help of the two arrangers Ezio Leoni and Giulio Libano has found a fusion of language related to the expression and atmosphere, it's difficult to find flaws or mistakes in this album.The songs on this record are aimed to everyone: jazz fans and those who are not very familiar with jazz. Chet has overcome the barrier that normally divides the two classes of purchasers for the vinyl, he has been able to link, without however giving up a millimeter from what are his fundamental canons of expression, the romantic line of the bows and his introvert and precise jazz expression. For Ezio Leoni and Giulio Libano the work ground with Chet has been smoothed out: there was no need to build beyond the measure, it was important to expand, enhance, galvanize what Chet wanted to express.There is no doubt that they found a simple, successful and effective technique in structuring the album. They have alternated lyrical songs with more stringent and alive tracks. With the continuous alternation of times, expressions and atmospheres they made sure to avoid any monotony. In according with Chet they built a great and selected formation made up of the best Italian jazz musicians. The orchestra that recorded the album was consisted of 16 violins, 4 violas, 4 cellos, a flute, a bass clarinet, an oboe, a French horn, a harp which matched with Glauco Massetti's alto sax, Fausto Papetti's baritone sax, Mario Pezzotta's trombone, Gianni Basso's tenor sax, Franco Cerri's double bass, Gene Victory's drums. An imposing orchestra that was able to mix perfectly and alternate purely jazzy instruments with strings during the performances.The repertoire included in the album ranges a lot: from well-known motifs such as 'Angel Eyes', 'When I Fall In Love' or 'I Should Care', to others less known but very pleasant tracks as 'The Song Is You' or 'Forgetful'. Other tracks lend themselves perfectly to a wider orchestration such as 'Autumn In New York', 'Violets for Your Fur' or 'Deep in A Dream'. Another theme was treated with a thrifty intervention of the strings, almost a crown of the whole performance, represented by the recording 'Street of Dreams'. In the last track "Good-bye" of Side "A" Chet expresses an exceptional sadness in a very valid and unusual way.

SAAR Records reissued on vinyl and with it's famous label Music, the second LP made with Chet Baker and his sextet and quartet, the vinyl was first released in March 1960. One of the rare occasions presented to our musicians to meet an American trumpeter for quite a long time was stopped and collected in this LP. It is Chet Baker who for several months chose Italy as a country of residence and life and after having traveled far and wide, he found a way to restore himself to health and to leave several documents of his genius and it's artistic possibilities. Chet's trumpet is now legendary. Baker is one of the most important and decisive figures of modern jazz and over the years he has not lost his Polish and color. This LP amply demonstrates this and indeed presents us with a rather modified Chet Baker. Chet's sonority has become less thin, more concise, more precise, more violent. Several songs on this record are proving it. In short, the Italian musicians made a crown with precision, spontaneity and a lot of warmth and ended up dragging Chet Baker into insolite and more heartfelt expressions. Chet Baker was in fact surrounded by two Italian musicians, the alto sax Glauco Masetti and the tenor sax Gianni Basso who in their long career as jazz enthusiasts and musicians, have always given their best and on this occasion they wanted to set a new range in the series of their engravings. The rhythm section has also been entrusted to a Renato Sellani who, in the meager essentiality of his pianism, knows how to draw the nuances necessary to make each of his interventions valid both as a soloist and as an accompanist. Franco Cerri's support on double bass is powerful, precise and full of swing, while that of Gene Victory the Italian-American musician on drums is adequate. Giulio Libano is the author of the arrangements of all the recordings for the sextet and has the great merit of having prepared simple and linear arrangements, that have left ample room for soloists to improvise. Chet Baker in fact has the preeminent position of the guest of honor, but also the other musicians in their choir part in a very precise alternation. But here is the distribution of the solos in the individual songs: Look For The Silver Lining - Chet Baker begins with a long solo that consists of the exposition of the theme, of two very well varied choruses marked by a series of stops, followed in order by the solos of Masetti, Basso, Sellani. Chet Baker closes by resuming the exposition of the theme on long notes.Lady Bird - after a collective start in unison, Chet Baker begins the series of solos with a rather bright and violent sound, making extensive use of high notes. The solos of Basso, Masetti and Sellani follow. A four bar chase in turn precedes the final collective.My Old Flame - the recording, performed by the quartet, is taken on a very slow tempo. It basically consists of three solos in this order: Chet Baker, Sellani, Chet Baker. The swing imposed by Franco Cerri is particularly highlighted.Line For Lions - the famous standard of Mulligan is taken on a fast tempo: a long solo by Chet Baker, then Basso, Masetti, Sellani, Cerri, the usual chase of four bars in turn and finally the final unison.Tune Up - runs almost on the standard routine of the other themes performed by the sextet: unison, Chet, Masetti, Basso, Sellani, chase of four bars in turn, final unison.Cheryl Blues - Parker's recording takes on particular evidence in an arrangement construction very similar to that of the be-bop recordings of the Gillespie Parker times. Also in this case: unison, Chet, Basso, Masetti, Sellani, final unison.Indian Summer - taken on a slow tempo by the quartet, the recording has it's own particular and well centered atmosphere. Chet Baker performs there in oneof his most valid and thoughtful solos. The recording, like the previous one of the quartet, is formed by: Chet Baker, Sellani, Chet Baker.Pent Up House - on the not elaborate motto, but nevertheless effective, a recording by Sonny Rollins, Giulio Libano has set up an arrangement that starts from a dry and decisive unison, followed in order by Chet, Basso, Masetti, Sellani. A short chase of four bars in turn, ending at the cut, 24 bars in all, then the last eight bars in unison.The tracks were recorded on 25-26 September 1959 and 6 October 1959 at the Guertler Bros studio.

A special double LP Record Store Day 2022 exclusive, featuring two albums by the late Jay Bennett (Wilco) alongside the 2021 feature-length documentary "Where are you, Jay Bennett?," packaged in a gatefold jacket.

"Where are you, Jay Bennett?" is a feature-length documentary on Jay Bennett, a legendary musician who, as a member of Wilco, was a large part of the genius behind their three seminal albums (Being There, Summerteeth, and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot -- he co-wrote most of Summerteeth and YHF with Jeff Tweedy) as well as the Mermaid Avenue/Woody Guthrie sessions with Billy Bragg, and who went on to a critically acclaimed solo career, before dying tragically at the age of 45

"Whatever Happened I Apologize" is best described by Brian Robbins of JamBands.com: "a departure from much of his past work. Simply put, the master of what-this-track-needs-is-one-more-weird-noise-and-it'll-be-perfect (and staunch defender of vinyl) has offered up a digital-only acoustic album much of it just the man, his guitar, and some pretty open emotions.”

"Kicking at the Perfumed Air" is a beautiful collection of personal songs that Jay Bennett was working on when he died. Released posthumously, the album was praised for its subtle beauty. Pitchfork said: "But Perfumed works simply because Bennett was such a keen craftsman, his mournfulness so elegantly expressed, and as such, nevertheless serves as a fitting elegy for an under-appreciated and occasionally misunderstood songsmith and musician taken too soon."
