Monday 10pm: LP Lounge with Willie B

Tonight at 10pm (US East Coast Time) we drop the needle on 2 classics at the LP Lounge.

Ten Years After (A Space in Time), and the Supreme’s Greatest Hits.

The first LP will be a direct from the vinyl LP SQ presentation. The Supremes Greatest was only released in quad, in Japan, and only on CD-4. Since I don’t have the where-with-all to play discrete quad – I’ve taken that LP, demodulated it, then encoded it for QS, so you can get some idea what the surround effect was. Still in all, a true vinyl LP, and a mix only possible from that original platter – so I think I’m still keeping it real. You be the judge, check us out at RadioMaxMusic.com

A Space in Time is the sixth studio album by the British blues rock band Ten Years After. It was released in August 1971 by Chrysalis Records in the United Kingdom and Columbia Records in America. A departure in style from their previous albums, A Space in Time is less ‘heavy’ than previous albums and includes more acoustic guitar, perhaps influenced by the success of Led Zeppelin who were mixing acoustic songs with heavier numbers. It reached number 17 in the Billboard 200.

The third track on the album, “I’d Love to Change the World”, is also their biggest hit. By combining a melodic acoustic chorus with challenging electric guitar riffs, they managed to produce a sound that hit number 10 in the charts in Canada and number 40 in the USA. Although this was their biggest hit, they rarely played it live. “Baby Won’t You Let Me Rock ‘n’ Roll You” also charted in the USA, peaking at number 61. – Wikipedia

Monday 10pm: LP Lounge with Willie B

Today on the LP Lounge, join Willie B for two classic albums, Redbone and Mountain.

Message from a Drum is the third album by Native American rock band Redbone released in 1971. It was released in Europe under the name The Witch Queen of New Orleans with the same track list and a different cover. The CD version released in the early 2000s has the European cover and title of the original LP and includes the single version of “Chant: 13th Hour” as a bonus track (the full version being from the second LP Potlatch).

 

The Best of Mountain is the first compilation by American hard rock band Mountain. It consists of material recorded throughout 1970-1971, culled from their first three LPs. On April 15, 2003, the album was remastered and reissued in an expanded edition with new liner notes and four bonus tracks, two of which are taken from Leslie West’s first solo album, 1969’s Felix Pappalardi-produced Mountain, the project which eventually led to the formation of the band.

Tonight we feature in SQ the complete Chicago Album.

Chicago (sometimes referred to as Chicago II) is the second studio album and second double album by Chicago-based American rock band Chicago. This was the first album to use the Chicago logo on the cover, which became an enduring feature on the covers of all of the band’s succeeding studio albums. Released in January 1970 on Columbia Records, Chicago was commercially successful. It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in April of the same year of its release, and certified platinum in 1991. It reached No. 4 on the album charts in the United States and No. 6 on the album charts in the UK, and produced three top ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100. The album received three Grammy Award nominations – for Album of the Year, Contemporary Vocal Group, and Best Album Cover.

EDGAR WINTER GROUP
They Only Come Out at Night is the third studio album by Edgar Winter and the first by the Edgar Winter Group. A commercial hit, the album reached the #3 slot on the Billboard 200 chart and also features two of the band’s biggest songs: “Frankenstein” (#1 on the Billboard Hot 100) and “Free Ride” (#14 on that same chart). Musically, besides the country track “Round & Round,” the album features a mixture of mostly blues rock and boogie woogie induced rock in a generally carefree and upbeat sound.[citation needed] The album eventually sold two million copies.

In 2006, the album was reissued on Super Audio CD by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab as well as the 2008 Quadraphonic rendition was reissued by SBME Sony BMG (Bertelsmann Music Group) Music Entertainment. In the same year, it was featured in the video game Prey.

Writer Stephen King mentioned the album (specifically its cover artwork) in his 1975 novel ‘Salem’s Lot.

The album is mentioned in the song “I Love My Dad” by Sun Kil Moon on their 2014 album Benji.

The Australian cassette issue of the album in 1973 transposes “Undercover Man” and “Frankenstein” (i.e. Frankenstein ends side A instead of side B) and has a wholly different cover: a photo of the band posing against a black background. The American cassette follows the same track order as the Australian issue, but retains the original cover.

The album was certified gold April 30, 1973 by the RIAA.

Besides being a commercial success, the album has received many highly positive critical reviews. Writing for AllMusic, critic Michael B. Smith praised the “party” and “sing-along” feel of the album. He remarked, “While this album will forever be remembered for spawning the huge hit singles ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘Free Ride,’ there’s plenty more to appreciate on this stellar release.”

CAROLE KING
Music is the third album by American singer-songwriter Carole King. It is a continuation of the style laid down in Tapestry. The album was released in December 1971 and quickly rose to the top of the charts. It features songs such as “It’s Going to Take Some Time” (US No. 12 by The Carpenters), “Sweet Seasons,” a No. 9 hit for Carole King, and “Brother, Brother”.

Carole King: Music experienced immediate success and was certified gold on December 9, 1971, days after release. It was certified platinum on July 17, 1995. The album reportedly sold 1,300,000 copies in the United States on the day of its release.

Music entered the top ten at No. 8, becoming the first of many weeks both Tapestry and Carole King: Music would occupy the top ten simultaneously. The album hit No. 1 on New Year’s Day 1972 and stayed there for three consecutive weeks.

King plays the piano and celeste on many tracks. – Wikipedia

Monday 10pm: LP Lounge with Willie B

Tonight at 10 on RadioMaxMusic.com the LP Lounge goes to prison. We feature two live albums (oddly enough in surround sound). The first is not widely known outside of the Latin community, which is a shame – the 2nd, well, its the second best selling live album in history.

Larry Harlow – Harlow Live In Quad
A classic live event recorded at Sing Sing prison in upstate NY, the sound was captured in 4 channels. The first Salsa recording to utilize the technology that was new at the time. Beyond the innovation, this album was all about the rhythms. A mix of classic Cuba and straight ahead Salsa, Harlow was a genius at crafting a one of a kind sound. Featuring Junior Gonzalez, Justo Betancourt and more on vocals, the level of performance and quality was second to none.

Johnny Cash At San Quentin
At San Quentin is the 31st overall album by Johnny Cash, recorded live at San Quentin State Prison on February 24, 1969 and released on June 4 of that same year. The album was certified gold on August 12, 1969, platinum and double platinum on November 21, 1986, and triple platinum on March 27, 2003 by the RIAA. It is the second best selling live album of all time surpassed only by its conceptual predecessor, “At Folsom Prison”. The album was nominated for a number of Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and won Best Male Country Vocal Performance for “A Boy Named Sue.” There have been several releases with different songs and set order. The album cover photo by Jim Marshall is considered to be an iconic image of Cash, with Marshall Grant’s Epiphone Newport bass guitar famously silhouetted in the foreground. – Wikipedia
