*Newsflash* Acoustic Sounds purchases Classic Records

July 27, 2010
(Remember The Sound) was their slogan, well now you’ll be remembering the sound from a new address. Acoustic Sounds out of Salina, Kansas is owned and ran by Chad Kassem. He has just purchased Classic Records, best known for their high quality RCA Living Stereo re-issues. “This is a big acquisition for Acoustic Sounds which will enable us to further increase our presence and reputation in the audiophile vinyl market worldwide,” according to Kassem. Michael Hobson, who founded Classic Records in 1994, will continue in an advisory role to Acoustic Sounds to ensure a smooth transition. Congratulations to Acoustic Sounds for their purchase and one of the highest quality vinyl re-issue companies is now acquiring the other highest quality vinyl re-issue company. We wish you much success.

Cheers

"Pirates Press" pressing

 It’s a big happening thing now here in California. For quality vinyl pressing, people are going to a place in San Francisco called “Pirates Press” who are very willing to do business with anybody with a buck. What I’ve noticed is that they absolutely do the coolest pressings I’ve ever seen in my life (PicDiscs too). If an LP has a hot pink and bright sky blue cover, they press the vinyl to match the cover colors. Right now they are doing the self titled Blink 182 album using the colors of the LP cover (split pink & white). For the Cattle Decapitation LP, they did White Vinyl and put 1 inch round Black Spots to make it look like a cow pattern (Great Ideas). Maybe check them out on the web?

Warners is now using them for all their vinyl. (Devo, Muse, Disturbed, H.I.M.) They don’t even press anything under 180 gram vinyl and I remember getting records cheap on this killer quality colored vinyl (I think they are actually pressed in the UK though, because they looked so good?)

Upcoming Releases for August 2010

Well, summer is half over and there are still many cool vinyl albums out there to come in August.

Lets start with a budget re-issue of the never-to-be-found Undisputed Truth’s 1972 album called “Law Of  The Land”.

It’s a wonder it took so long to be re-issued, as it contains actually the first recorded version of “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” by The Temptations which went to #1 pop in 1972.

And so, without further adue:

4 Men With Beards is set to release Radio Birdman’s cult Australian punk LP from 1977 called Radios Appear.

This is the domestic version (there was an Australian one with different cover and songs).

Friday Music is re-issuing Deep Purple’s Made In Japan, Kansas’ Leftoverture and Alice Cooper’s A Fistful Of Alice.

Capitol is re-issuing R.E.M.’s Fables Of The Reconstruction.

Plain Recordings is re-issuing The Jayhawks’ Tomorrow The Green Grass.

Antone Newcombe’s A records is re-issuing his band The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s classic LP on Blue & Red vinyl called Take It From The Man.

Monti Olson’s ORG music is re-issuing 2 Sonic Youth records (Bad Moon Rising & Sister).

Music On Vinyl is re-issuing The Byrds Untitled 2 LP form the late 60’s

Sir Lord Baltimore is being re-issued on 2 albums.

Elvis Costello’s original LP’s are coming out on MOFI.

Elvis Presley gets his Girls! Girls! Girls! soundtrack re-issued on MOFI.

Bobbie Gentry’s classic Ode To Billie Joe is getting re-issued as an import.

Muddy Waters At Newport is coming soon.

The Stooges are putting out an LP from the vaults called The Electric Circus on COLORED VINYL.

Gary Numan w/ Tubeway Army are putting out a 4 LP box set with the first 3 albums and a demo album called “The Plan”. One record will be on BLUE vinyl.

Cream Disraeli Gears is out there on Picture Disc

Dio Holy Diver is out there on Picture disc

Kate Bush is re-issuing her classic Hounds Of Love album.

The Gipsy Kings 1st classic LP is delayed again but should come out soon.

Devo’s new album WILL CONTAIN the CD version as well be on BLUE vinyl (wot a bargain). It is called Something For Everybody.

Iron Maiden have a new studio album called The Final Frontier  that will be on DOUBLE PICTURE DISC VINYL for just over $30.00.

Hope everyone is updated now?

Take Care
