Anywhere II

Vinyl: $23.98 Buy

Anywhere II is the second, proper full length release from musical entity Anywhere, following their 2012 self-titled release. The sound began with two friends Christian Eric Beaulieu and Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta) digging into open tuning and hybrid ragas with punk energy. The project evolved into an expansive, bizarrely curated cavalcade of A-list psychedelic exhibitionists from all parts California, and a few world famous musicians playing non-famous instruments, all arranged and overseen by a mostly unknown, humble guitar playing surfer dude. The line-up of “II” finds Beaulieu and Zavala accompanied by Krist Novoselic,  Mike Watt,  Dale Crover, Jonathan Hischke, and many others. No where else in the world can you find a recording with members of Comets On Fire, Nirvana, Earthless, Melvins, Flying Luttenbachers, Sleepy Sun, Triclops!, Devendra Banhart, Lieutenant, Golden, Black Fork, Victims Family, The Mars Volta,  fIREHOSE, AND a winner of America's Next Top Model. And no one ever will again.

The Animals. What can one say about the Animals? Out of sight? That’s old. That they fly? They’ve been flying since they began. That they’re great. This record proves it. Well, if one were looking for things to say, one could say that everything is better about this album, especially the recording of vocals and drums. But, of course, the only real question is, how is Eric? Eric is, of course, in orbit (he’s also the lead vocalist, for those of you who aren’t Animals fans). The whole of side one is an uninterrupted symphony of R&B. Just listen to the two versions of the absurdly great “C. C. Rider”. On the other hand (also on the other side, side two) is most of their psychedelic material. Compared to the previous Animals albums, this just seems to pack a little more punch than any of the others with the possible exception of Animal Tracks. Jenkins’s drumming really makes a difference in the overall sound. The group seems freer now, especially on the uptempo material (check “Shake, Rattle And Roll”). And Burdon’s vocals seem to be constantly improving, which is a crucial point. I can think of nothing he has done previously to equal “Tobacco Road” or “When I Was Young.” In any event, the fact is that this album rocks. And when the Animals rock, no one can touch them. My one hope is that there is enough material in the can to put out another album as good as this one. Limited to 2000 copies worldwide.

Side 1: Tracks 1-3: 21 January 1967 live in Hamburg. Tracks 4-6: 20 January 1967 live in Offenbach. Side 2: Tracks 1-5: January 1967 Tracks 6-7: October 1967. Side 1: 1. C. C. Rider 2.

Ruff Draft: Dilla's Mix [LP]

Vinyl: $27.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

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 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.

Guitar legend and Television co-founder Richard Lloyd has had a profound influence on rock & roll, with people like Jeff Tweedy citing Lloyd as his “musical hero”. Yet Lloyd’s solo career has somehow largely been overlooked and under-appreciated.With the release of his critically acclaimed 2017 memoir, Everything is Combustable, there is a renewed interest in his post-Television work. Perhaps the most obscure of his solo releases is Lodestones, an album that was released in 2010 only as a digital download.

Postales (Original Soundtrack)

Vinyl: $24.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Original soundtrack featuring Daptone alumni, Menahan Street Band and Budos Band. "Postales is a cross-cultural love story shot in the streets of Cusco, Peru in which a postcard-selling street kid encounters an American Tourist girl, and follows her back to her hotel, setting off a chain of events that culminates with a stolen wallet, young love, and a family losing its home." The soundtrack provided by Brooklyn Afro Latin Funk outfits Menahan and Budos Band paints just as nice a picture as the film with sometimes gritty, slightly menacing production. The signature horn section drives the tracks and is easily one of the best Deep Latin Soul records from the last decade. Colemine Records, being known for their incredible 45 catalog of modern Afro Beat and Funk, released Postales as their first full length. If you are a fan of Truth & Soul and Daptone, this is for you. Recommended.

One of the earliest MC5 singles! Packaged in new envelope style sleeves, with rare unseen band photos! The Motor City Five pressed on black vinyl at Third Man Pressing in the Motor City! Includes brand spankin’ new liners by David Fricke of Rolling Stone, who says, “In a 1966 live recording, the MC5 played ‘Looking at You’ like Motown raga. At United Sound, the band hit the zigzag riff at light speed and stayed there, framed by searing lead guitar and explosive drumming. ‘Borderline’ was a frantic jigsaw of power-chord jolts and sheet-like harmonies detonated again, at the Grande, for the live recording of the MC5's first LP, Kick Out the Jams.”

Nazz's second album was to be a double album (as per Todd's wishes), called Fungo Bat. Recording began in Nov 1968 and completed in Spring (March) 1969. Due to band members indifference & management decisions, it was never released as such and Todd left the band to pursue a solo career. Todd's personal copies of the Fungo Bat Acetates were among the possessions lost in a fire at his home. The source of the recordings are from an individual in Austin, Texas, who once owned one of the only known copies of the acetates for Fungo Bat. It was three 12" acetates, with typed labels. The track listing on the acetates are just in order, 24 tracks - if this was indeed the album order, what is listed above is the logical place for album side breaks With Todd Rundgren-guitar; Robert "Stewkey" Antoni- vocals keyboards; Carson Van Osten- bass; THom Mooney0 drums.
