Sales points
     The first solo album by the former leader of the Impressions, Curtis represented a
        musical apotheosis for Curtis Mayfield — indeed, it was practically the "Sgt. Pepper's"
        album of '70s soul, helping with its content and its success to open the whole genre to
        much bigger, richer musical canvases than artists had previously worked with.
     All of Mayfield's years of experience of life, music, and people were pulled together into a
        rich, powerful, topical musical statement that reflected not only the most up-to-date soul
        sounds of its period, finely produced by Mayfield himself, and the immediacy of the times
        and their political and social concerns, but also embraced the most elegant R&B sounds
        out of the past.
     As a producer, Mayfield embraced the most progressive soul sounds of the era,
        stretching them out compellingly on numbers like "Move on Up," but also drew on
        orchestral sounds (especially harps), to achieve some striking musical timbres (check out
        "Wild and Free"), and wove all of these influences, plus the topical nature of the songs,
        into a neat, amazingly lean whole.
     There was only one hit single off of this record, "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Down
        Below We're All Going to Go," which made number three, but the album as a whole was
        a single entity and really had to be heard that way.

Sales Points
     The group's first album with Michael McDonald marked a shift to a more mellow and self-
        consciously soulful sound for the Doobies, not all that different from what happened to
        Steely Dan — whence McDonald (and Jeff Baxter) had come — between, say, Can't Buy
        a Thrill and Pretzel Logic.
     They showed an ability to expand on the lyricism of Patrick Simmons and Baxter's writing
        on "Wheels of Fortune," while the title track introduced McDonald's white funk sound cold
        to their output, successfully. Simmons' "8th Avenue Shuffle" vaguely recalled "Black
        Water," only with an urban theme and a more self-consciously soul sound.
     "Rio" and "It Keeps You Runnin'" both manage to sound like Steely Dan tracks — and
        that's a compliment — while Tiran Porter's hauntingly beautiful "For Someone Special"
        was a pure soul classic right in the midst of all of these higher-energy pieces.
     Tom Johnston's "Turn It Loose" is a last look back to their earlier sound, while Simmons'
        "Carry Me Away" shows off the new interplay and sounds that were to carry the group
        into the 1980s, with gorgeous playing and singing all around.

Since his death at the age of 52 in 1997, the reputation and popularity of Townes Van Zandt have grown greater by
the day. He left behind a musical legacy of some of the most beautifully crafted songs ever written and a legion of
ever growing grateful admirers. The solo tracks in this 2-CD collection cover Van Zandt's most creative period, when
he was recording for the Poppy and Tomato labels between 1968 and 1978. Most of his original output was recorded
during this decade and appeared on his first eight albums. All of his finest songs and performances are included here,
including 'Pancho And Lefty', ‗Tecumseh Valley‘, ‗For The Sake Of The Song‘ and 'If I Needed You.'

As a special bonus, this collection includes six duets with famous country artists, including Willie Nelson, Emmylou
Harris and Freddy Fender. These were recordings Townes made in the early nineties and later overdubbed by the
featured celebrities.

One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK‘s festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient and ethereal
landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves and psychedelic progressive rock. It‘s an open exploration
of music and the soul.
For over 25 years, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock and roll life. The band has flourished
through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects, created their own record label, put out close to
25 albums, scored a hit record and sold over a million albums world-wide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the
band‘s existence has never wavered. Their signature blend of hippy aesthetics and raver electronics with spiraling
guitars, textured waves of keyboard and midi samplers, and supergroovy bass and drum rhythms continues to delight
fans across the world to this day.
Erpland was the band‘s eighth release and was originally released in 1990 and is considered by many fans as one of
their finest works. The album has been remastered for this 2 disc set. Disc 2 is a DVD featuring the first authorized
released of the much sought after Brixton Fridge gig which has been lost for 20 years and only previously available on
bootlegged VHS tapes. The gig was recorded in May 1991 and features the classic line-up of Ed, Joie, Jon, Roly,
Merv and Paul Hankin.

Home Market: Africa
Selling Points:
     Youssou N‘Dour is probably the most famous African pop star in the world. Since his first
        appearances in North America (sharing the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel
        and Sting on the Human Rights Now Tour in 1988), he has filled concert halls and arenas
        across the continent and earned a reputation as an enthralling performer, a commanding
        bandleader and one of the greatest singers alive. His duet with Neneh Cherry, ―7
        Seconds,‖ was a global smash hit in 1994 and his album Egypt won a Grammy in 2005.
     Étoile de Dakar has been Youssou‘s band for over 30 years. He was 19 when he and
        ten other young Senegalese musicians got together in 1978. Their style was a brash,
        innovative blend of traditional West African music, Latin music and American rock and
        soul music. They called it mbalax (the Wolof word for ―beat‖), and in Senegal it caused a
        sensation that has yet to subside. Étoile de Dakar‘s cassettes were all runaway
        bestsellers, and their all-night shows were the makings of an enduring legend. Youssou
        and his fellow singers, El Hadji Faye and Eric M‘Backe N‘Doye, became famous not only
        for their voices but also for their wild dancing. And yet their amazing tama-drummer,
        Assane Thiam, almost stole the show night after night.
      That exciting era is captured in Once Upon a Time in Senegal. Two CDs contain 23
       tracks selected from the historic cassettes Étoile de Dakar recorded between 1979 and
       1981. Six of these tracks are rarities that have never been released outside of Senegal
       until now. The boxed set includes a 48-page booklet of period photographs and an essay
       by Mark Hudson, the author of The Music in My Head, a novel inspired by Youssou
       N‘Dour, Étoile de Dakar and mbalax mania.

Raven presents the first comprehensive Best Of CD covering the 1970s recordings of the father / son duo
DOC and MERLE WATSON, The Best Of The ‘70s: Columbus Stockade Blues. Arthel ―Doc‖ Watson is the
flat-picking guitar genius from Deep Gap, NC, who is considered alongside Merle Travis and Chet Atkins to be
one of the most influential folk / country guitar players ever. Country performers Ricky Scaggs, Vince Gill, the
late Clarence White and hundreds of others, acknowledge their great debt to Watson. Joined in the early ‗70s
by his son Merle, a talent in his own right, the duo went on to create an enduring legacy of fine recordings.
This generously compiled 30-track collection is culled from seven critically acclaimed albums the pair recorded
for Poppy and United Artists (including Memories, Live and Pickin’ and the Grammy Award-winning Then and
Now and Two Days in November,). ‗Bonaparte‘s Retreat‘, ‗Doc‘s Rag‘, ‗Shady Grove‘, ‗Columbus Stockade‘,
‗Natural Born Gamblin‘ Man‘, ‗Minglewood Blues‘ and ‗Big Sandy / Leather Britches‘ range in mood from
mellow and whimsical, energetic and playful to earthy and bittersweet, yet throughout Doc sings and picks with
a pure and emotional authenticity. ―Doc Watson is an American treasure‖ – AllMusic Guide. With superb
quality audio, detailed notes and color booklet, this splendid collection is a must-have for fans of traditional
country and folk guitar picking.

Raven presents a splendid Double CD by renowned New York folk-rock singer / song writer
RICHIE HAVENS, combining his first (Mixed Bag, 1967) and second (Something Else Again,
1968) albums recorded for MGM‘s folk label Verve Forecast. Born in the Bedford-Stuyvesant
section of Brooklyn, NY, Havens moved to Greenwich Village in 1961 just as the folk boom began
to explode. His contemporaries included the likes of Fred Neil, Bob Dylan and Dave Van Ronk.
Prior to his crowd-stirring performance at the Woodstock festival in 1969, these recordings saw
Havens establishing his reputation as one of the most distinctive performers of the era. With his
unusual open-E guitar tuning, unmistakable thumb-chorded strumming and distinctive smoky
voice, much of the music features an organic and melancholy vibe. In combining inspirational
self-penned songs such as the strident anti-war song ‗Handsome Johnny‘, ‗No Opportunity
Necessary, No Experience Needed‘ and ‗Somethin‘ Else Again‘ and traditional tunes (‗Run,
Shaker Life‘) with exuberant covers of material by Billy Ed Wheeler (‗High Flyin‘ Bird‘), Tuli
Kupferberg (‗Morning, Morning‘), Dylan (‗Just Like a Woman‘, ‗Maggie‘s Farm‘) and Lennon /
McCartney (‗Eleanor Rigby‘) Havens affirms his intuitive connection with the song writers‘ craft.
Havens continues to tour and record. With superb quality audio, color booklet and detailed liner
notes this is a must for fans of earthy and literate folk-rock.

Key Markets: New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Baltimore, San Francisco,

Home Market: Germany
Selling Points:
     Axel Rudi Pell‘s career began in 1980 with the band, Steeler, who sold over 30,000
        copies of their commercially most successful release, Strike Back, and brought out their
        fourth and final album, Undercover Animal, in 1988. In November of that year, Pell
        formed his own group together with Jörg Deisinger (ex-Bonfire), drummer Jörg Michael,
        bassist Thomas Smuszynski (ex-U.D.O.) and the American vocalist, Charlie Huhn (Ted
        Nugent, Gary Moore, Victory). Their debut album, Wild Obsessions, arrived at the stores
        one year later, followed by Nasty Reputation, for whom Pell enlisted the American
        frontman, Rob Rock (M.A.R.S, Impellitteri), who was replaced during the subsequent
        German tour by former Malmsteen vocalist, Jeff Scott Soto. With Soto as a new member,
        the third album, Eternal Prisoner (1992), was undeniable proof that the band had found
        their own, unmistakable style. One year later, Pell brought out The Ballads, an album
        featuring his most accomplished rock ballads. With Between The Walls (1994) and the
        live recording, Made In Germany, the guitarist from Bochum held on to his typical style
        even in the post-grunge era. The subsequent Black Moon Pyramid (1996) was the
        second Pell album in succession to make the German album charts. 1997 saw the arrival
        of Pell‘s eighth offering, Magic, featuring a thematically consistent concept based on
        supernatural stories. Magic also entered the charts, followed by Oceans of Time, the
        commercially most successful album at that time by the Axel Rudi Pell band, and the
        continuation of Pell‘s ballad concept (The Ballads II, 1999). Following the departure of
        Jeff Scott Soto, Pell enlisted American vocalist Johnny Gioeli (ex-Hardline) for the
        production of Oceans of Time, The Ballads III and his 2000 release, Masquerade Ball.
        His characteristic voice also enhanced the subsequent releases, Shadow Zone (2002)
        and Kings & Queens (2004), as well as the highly accomplished Mystica (2006) and the
        covers album, Diamonds Unlocked. Tales Of The Crown (2008), the most recent studio
        recording by the ARP Band, surprised with a number of innovations and made no. 41 of
        the German album charts. The Crest is set to repeat this triumphal march.
     First new studio album since 2008
     10 brand new Axel Rudi Pell tracks including the sequel to ―Oceans of Time‖ (his most
        successful album)
     With ―The Crest‖ Axel Rudi Pell returns to his successful melodic hard rock style

this album. It came out in the spring of 1973. Unfortunately, Davis was fired from Columbia shortly after the album's
release, an action that doomed any developing band that had been signed under his aegis. The album went nowhere,
and when Columbia refused to release their second album, Copperhead folded.

- Rolling Stone says: Top-10 Latin Ska Band of the world, one of the best 50 albums in 2007
- Infierno is produced by Grammy-winner TWEETY GONZÁLES (SHAKIRA, GUSTAVO CERATI)
 The Band played shows together with THE SKATALITES, MOLOTOV, PANTHÉON ROCOCÓ,
MAD PROFESSOR and others. ROCOLA BACALAO has the energy of PANTEÓN ROCOCÓ and the
hits from KARAMELO SANTO plus an insane, particularly reckless hornsection that'll blow your ears out. Infierno mea
ns: Fasten your seatbelts and welcome to a colorful, adrenalin loaded latin rodeo ride.

ROCOLA BACALAO means something like a „Rockin' Rum-
Cola Boss― and as we said these guys are crazy. They are from Quito, Ecuador, and have been
playing music together for over 9 years. They've played their asses off and their fingers sore.
We believe Rolling Stone Latin America when they state that these 9 nice gents – 5 of them horn section –
from the the 2nd highest capitol of the world are one of the eight best bands from all of South
America! They blend the mestizo-like ingredients Ska, Cumbia and Punk to their own, unique, mix. Fantastic!

June 2010 marks the release of the new edition of one of the most prolific, and popular trance album series to date,
In Trance We Trust. After highly successful editions by legends like Eyal Barkan and First State, In Trance We Trust
003 has been produced by Tom Cloud. Supporting artists like Tom's favorite vocalists Tiff Lacey, Esmaye, Antonio Lu
cas, as well as Russian dream team Moonbeam, all joined in to furnish the album with spectacular vocal
sessions, also adding their production skills.

Starting his career under the wings of Tiësto resulted in a string of opportunities for Tom Cloud. Tom was asked to re
mix some of the biggest names in the trance industry such as Andrew Bennett, Cosmic Gate, Andy Moor, Carl B and
Johan Gielen, to name a few. However, Tom experienced his most shining professional moment remix-
wise when Tiësto personally asked him to remix one of his upcoming singles. The Tom Cloud remix for Tiësto‘s
production Sweet Things was conceived, added to the original version, and promptly became a worldwide monster
tune, thus making Tom Cloud a household name in the trance genre.
If every cloud has a silver lining, Tom Cloud‘s lining must be made of pure gold... a man to keep your eyes on,
and your ears open in the near future!

In April 2008 The Pineapple Thief launched the Kscope label with the critically acclaimed album, Tightly Unwound.

While the album was many people‘s introduction to the band they have actually spent the past ten years quietly
building up a dedicated fan base across the globe, selling over 25,000 records and nurturing their ‗bittersweet‘
progressive sound. In spring 2010, the band return with their new album. The nine tracks mark another step forward in
the band‘s progression, as Bruce Soord‘s songwriting continues to evolve and the band grow ever tighter.

The album will feature artwork currently being created by the legendary designer Storm Thorgerson, who is famous
for creating some of the most recognisable artwork of the last 30 years including albums by Pink Floyd (Dark Side Of
The Moon, Division Bell, Pulse), Muse, Led Zeppelin, Biffy Clyro and many more.

Selling Points:
     Having sold over 35,000 copies of their debut, Stairway to Fairyland, Freedom Call‘s tour
       with Saxon, Angra and Edguy turned into a triumphal march, culminating in memorable
       shows with Savatage and Skew Siskin in August 1999 as part of the Popkomm music fair
       in Cologne. The band played almost fifty shows in 2000 and proved their worth at various
       festivals, like the Wacken Open Air 1999 and 2000. Their second release, Crystal
       Empire, even surpassed the debut‘s success. The sales figures increased, and even
       before the album was available, Freedom Call were invited to the Metal Fest in Bologna,
       Italy, played the Metal Days in Switzerland and delivered an unforgettable performance at
       the Stratovarius/Rhapsody show in Bourges, France. Following the release of Crystal
       Empire, Freedom Call embarked on a 63-day European tour with Hammerfall and Virgin
       Steele that took them through Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungry, France
       and Spain, among other countries. June 2002 saw the arrival of the third Freedom Call
       recording, Eternity, followed by an extensive tour with Blind Guardian, during which their
       most recent release, Live Invasion, was recorded. At the same time, Freedom Call
       established themselves as a headlining act in their own right and were celebrated as the
       stars of the Wacken Road Show 2004 night after night. The Circle Of Life saw the
       integration of more modern and unusual arrangements into the band‘s sound, extending
       the musicians‘ sonic range – an element which their last album, Dimensions, also
       benefits from. In 2010 the new album ―Legend of the Shadowking‖ will see the light of
       day. The album is based on the story of King Ludwig II. In February/March 2010 Freedom
       Call will embark on a huge European tour together with Gamma Ray.

     Paul Butterfield was the white ambassador of the black Chicago blues. He had played on
         the third day of the Woodstock festival (1969), at the time already accompanied by
         guitarist Buzzy Feiten, who was also with him at the Rockpalast performance. And Paul
         had been instrumental in shocking the folk audience at Newport (1965) with electric blues
       rock sounds, which delighted Bob Dylan to such an extent that he asked members of the
       band to accompany him at the festival. We remembered Paul Butterfield from his
       involvement in The Last Waltz, The Band‘s farewell performance (1976), having
       presented the film in the documentary section of the WDR Rockpalast program. He was
       inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2006.
    Recorded on September 15th, 1978

        the legendary Allman Brothers Band and as the second solo guitarist creating an
        influence with his melodic playing, his solos and improvisations which marked the music
        style of this group. In 1976 Dickey Betts founded his own group Great Southern with
        which he - how the name points out – wanted to develop his musical direction, which he
        succeeded in a persuasive manner. Dickey Betts & Great Southern were the most

    Before Harry Nilsson became Nilsson and started recording his string of RCA albums, he
        was a part-time fixture on the L.A. music scene, one of the many hopefuls trying to crack
        the commercial coconut.
    In between cutting vocal tracks for television and radio commercials, he often found the
        time and opportunity to record some real tracks, and some of these efforts are
        represented here.
    Tracks like "Good Times," "Sixteen Tons," and several others have a true period charm.
    The resulting album is akin to the Byrds' Preflyte, another simple, wondrously lo-fi
        collection that clearly shows you where it all began.
    John Stewart's follow-up to the unprecedented success of California Bloodlines stuck
        close to the same formula.
    Recorded in Hollywood with many of the same musicians from the earlier record — Norb
        Putnam, Kenny Buttrey, Charlie McCoy, among them — Stewart also employed other
        country musicians such as banjo boss Bobby Thompson and fiddle player Doug Kershaw
        as well as a host of his peers — from Russ Kunkel and Carole King to Danny Kortchmar,
        James Taylor, and Bryan Garofalo — at the suggestion of producer Peter Asher — later
        known for his schlock work with Linda Ronstadt and Carly Simon among others.
       The feel of the album is somewhat stripped of the California cosmetics that were in so
        many records from that time.
       Willard is a country record in all the best ways; it just might be Stewart's master opus.

       Raised on the sounds of Freddie Hubbard, Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis and Donny
        Hathaway, DWELE is without question, one of Detroit‘s finest. Originally discovered by
        legendary producer J.DILLA, DWELE first caught the attention of SLUM VILLAGE who
        invited him to sing on the hook of their now classic joint, ―Tainted.‖ The rest as they say is
          DWELE is not just an ―album‖ artist; he‘s also a heavy touring artist who spends the
           better part of each year on tour converting audiences night after night. Last year, DWELE
           was featured in a massive MCDONALD‟S MCCAFE TV CAMPAIGN which generated
           million upon millions of impressions, immediately bolstering his profile.
          The new album includes some of his most accessible music to date including the first
           single “WHAT‟S NOT TO LOVE” which is already being embraced by Urban AC radio.

     Recorded in Nashville with a stunning group of multi-platinum legends, this newly
        recorded collection of some of the greatest songs in pop and country music history
        features Jimmy Webb and friends at their most romantic, poignant, lyrical, and inspiring.
        Each track stands alongside---and in some cases, surpasses---the beloved original hits.
        The music is contemporary, yet classically timeless. The arrangements serve the songs,
        and the incredible vocal performers who collaborate with Jimmy of the album of his
     The critical acclaim composer Jimmy Webb has received during his more than forty years
        of success is as remarkable as the accomplishments they honor: Webb is the only artist
        to ever receive Grammy awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration; he is a member of
        the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriter‘s Hall of Fame and the Nashville
        Songwriter‘s Hall of Fame; and, according to BMI, his ―By The Time I Get To Phoenix,‖
        (sung on the new album in duet with Glen Campbell---the first time the two have ever
        recorded together) has been the third most performed song in the last fifty years. Webb‘s
        ―Wichita Lineman‖ (performed here with Billy Joel and Jerry Douglas) has been listed in
        the Top Fifty of MOJO Magazine‘s worldwide survey of the best one hundred singles of
        all time, and was singled out in the Oct/Nov 2001 issue of Blender as ―The Greatest Song
     Webb was known initially for the instant classics he provided for such artists as
        Campbell, Richard Harris (―MacArthur Park,‖ ―Didn‘t We‖), the Fifth Dimension (―Up, Up
        and Away,‖ ―This Is Your Life‖), and Johnny Maestro‘s Brooklyn Bridge (―Worst That
        Could Happen.‖) Jimmy also topped the Country charts when Waylon Jennings, Willie
        Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson hit #1 with ―The Highwayman,‖ a ballad
        which won him yet another Grammy for Best Country Song of the Year, and a CMA
        Award for Single Of The Year. On JUST ACROSS THE RIVER, Jimmy shares the mike
        with Mark Knopfler on this tune. Linda Ronstadt, who has recorded a multitude of
        Webb songs throughout her recording career, included four of his efforts on her double
        platinum album, ―Cry Like A Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind.‖ She‘s on board here for a
        heartwarming, intimate closing duet on ―All I Know,‖ the Webb standard made famous by
        Art Garfunkel.
     And that‘s just the beginning. As a performer Jimmy has released numerous critically-
        acclaimed albums over the years, earning distinguished reviews in all of the major
        publications, and unqualified praise following his appearances in concert halls and top
        cabaret venues. But he has never attempted a project like JUST ACROSS THE RIVER,
        where his singing AND songwriting is celebrated by the collaborations of his peers, like
        Jackson Browne and Willie Nelson, as well as artists who have revered his music for
        years, like Lucinda Williams, Michael McDonald, and Vince Gill.

No Man are Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson (currently enjoying worldwide success with the new Porcupine Tree
album). Wild Opera was originally released in 1996 and the album is regarded by some fans as not only being one of
the finest works recorded by no-man but as being up there with the best of Steven Wilson‘s entire catalogue. Long out
of print, the album has become a highly- sought rarity with copies changing hands for over £100 on ebay.

This deluxe 2CD digibook edition also includes all of the Dry Cleaning Ray mini-album alongside some b-sides and
rarities from the era. The media-book packaging features new artwork created by long time collaborator Carl Glover.

After more than four years the seven ‖wisecräckers‖ (German for wiseasses) are back in business with their fourth full
-length album. They've kept themselves pretty busy in the meantime
playing shows around the globe. They sold out the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, California. Now it's official: WISECR
ÄCKER are Germany's most international Ska-
Punk band. Lyrically switching from English to Spanish and German; musically somewhere between Sublime and
IronMaiden. And to complete their so called „Brett & Bläser― sound à la MAD CADDIES it's spiced with some Latin-
American sounds and rhythms here and there. Strike four by the seven-piece Hannover-Stockholm-connection!

Selling Points:
     The vast majority of these songs are songs that were basically recorded at the same time
        as the band recorded the ―God Is A Bullet‖ album. The band were enjoying a very
        creative and productive period and obviously had a lot of surplus material left over which
        they have recently found the time and inclination to complete. Some of these tracks made
        it to single ―b‖ sides and extra tracks etc, but only 3 of which having previously made it
        onto limited edition CD release. A couple of tracks here are, in fact, just Wayne Hussey
