Landslide Records is proud and excited to announce the compact disc release of RED CLAY SOUL, a vibrant new set of original, soulful compositions from veteran Georgia blues rocker Tinsley Ellis. A follow up to Ellis award winning, critically acclaimed TOUGH LOVE, the new album combines Ellis masterful guitar and vocal prowess with fresh arrangements and a crack backing band. Produced by Ellis and keyboardist Kevin McKendree, RED CLAY SOUL was recorded live in McKendree s Nashville studio with bassist Steve Mackey and drummer Lynn Williams. Oliver Wood (the Wood Brothers) contributed guitar and background vocal parts on the duet, Givin You Up, which he also co-wrote with Ellis. Additionally, RED CLAY SOUL boasts a wide ranging assortment of soul induced blues rock that opens with All I Think About, a Freddie King inspired rocker, then moves along effortlessly through the southern soul of Callin and the Latin based instrumental, Estero Noche.
RCA Red Seal is a classical music label and is now part of Sony Masterworks.
The Red Seal label was begun in 1902 by the Gramophone Company in the United Kingdom and was quickly adopted by its United States affiliate, the Victor Talking Machine Company, and its president, Eldridge R. Johnson. Distinctive, red paper information labels affixed to the centre of the two affiliated companies' black shellac discs inspired the name.
On Ellis Island, the Irish Tenors offer the soundtrack to their PBS special. The performance, which took place in New York City in early 2001, is a smooth and classy effort that complements the incredible talent and power that this group possesses. Although many of these songs may be familiar to listeners, the versions offered here are very good and give the songs the power and clarity they deserve.
Since Sarah Cracknell was busy being the voice of Saint Etienne, it's hard to blame her too much for taking almost two decades to deliver her second solo album. After giving Red Kite a spin though, it's good enough that it's easy to wish that she had done it sooner. Unlike her 1997 album Lipslide, this time out Cracknell takes a giant step away from the patented Saint Etienne sound, surrounding her whisper-soft vocals with chamber pop, country-rock, and folk trappings (i.e., lots of guitars) while capturing the same sepia-toned nostalgic melancholy so much of their work has…
Limited bookbound edition. 2016 release from the British singer/songwriter. Familia follows her #4 charting and silver certified album Wanderlust, which marked a critically acclaimed change in musical direction for Sophie. Released in January 2014, Wanderlust went on to spend six months in the UK chart and gave Sophie her first top 10 record since 2007's Trip The Light Fantastic. Wanderlust has gone on the sell in excess of 100,000 copies. Familia's lead track, 'Come With Us', brings with it a touch of Sophie's original disco sound. Upbeat from start to finish, it is an instant disco-pop track that is as modern as it is retro with a completely addictive chorus. Sophie says it is "what happens when Ed Harcourt and I write rour on the floor. It is a live disco song about the lure of a cult." Familia features 11-tracks, which continue to showcase Sophie's newfound lyrical and musical maturity, from the beautiful and emotive 'Unrequited' to the synth-laded ballad 'Death Of Love' and the alt-pop buoyant opener 'Wild Forever'.
