Fu Manchu

To celebrate RSD Black Friday, At The Dojo Records releases Fu Manchu’s complete incendiary performance at the 2003 edition of the Roadburn Festival Netherlands on limited edition LP and CD. The band recently unearthed the original professional recordings taken directly from the soundboard and had them specifically mastered for this release. This is a legendary Fu set, iand includes classics “Squash That Fly,” “Hell On Wheels,” “Boogie Van” and “King Of The Road.”

"Playing Roadburn back in 2003 was a blast!”, Scott Hill, lead vocals/guitar of Fu Manchu says. “It was the year before we put out Start The Machine and we played a couple of songs from it live for the first time on that tour. One of the songs that’s on this live record, “I Wanna Be,” is a different arrangement than what ended up on the final studio release. We're stoked that the show was recorded and that people will get to hear it. Always a good time playing at Roadburn!"

1. “Squash That Fly” 2. “Hell On Wheels” 3. “Eatin’ Dust”  4. “Laserbl’ast!”  5. “I Wanna Be” 6. “Boogie Van”  7. “King Of The Road” 8. “Written In Stone”  9. “Saturn III”

Herbie Hancock

Throughout the 1970s, legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock engaged in a prolonged period of experimentation across sounds and recording formats, releasing several albums for Columbia that were only issued in Japan. 1979's Directstep was one such album, one that made use of a new form of recording technology called "Direct-To-Disc." This method recorded masters, in real time, to acetate discs, rendering incredibly high fidelity LP pressings, but sacrificing the ability to edit or overdub, a challenge Hancock and his group were more than up to.

Directstep utilized other technological advancements as well, incorporating brand new electronic instrument technology such as the electronic wind instrument the Lyricon, the freshly released Propet-5 synthesizer, and of course the Sennheiser Vocoder which would become a key part of the artist’s arsenal during his electro-funk period in the 1980s.

Beyond all that, Directstep is an incredibly solid collection of Herbie Hancock material, featuring stirring remakes of Hancock staples "Butterfly" and "I Thought It Was You" as well as brand new track "Shiftless Shuffle." Get On Down is proud to present this reissue of Directstep, a gem of jazz-fusion, available on vinyl for the first time in 30 years for RSD Black Friday!

A Side: “Butterfly”
B Side : “Shiftless Shuffle”, “I Thought It Was You”

Jimi Hendrix

As Christmas 1969 beckoned, Jimi Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox, and drummer Buddy Miles (christened Band Of Gypsys by Hendrix) engaged in extensive rehearsals for their highly anticipated appearances at The Fillmore East in New York.

This medley of “Little Drummer Boy,” “Silent Night” and “Auld Lang Syne,” along with “Three Little Bears,” a playful Electric Ladyland outtake from 1968, is now available on picture disc, featuring album artwork on one side and a photo of Jimi dressed as Santa Claus on the other.

Ian & Sylvia Tyson

Regarded as pioneers of the folk & Americana genre, Ian & Sylvia first came to prominence in the early ‘60s Greenwich Village and Yorkville folk scenes, performing alongside Bob Dylan (they were also managed by Albert Grossman), Joni Mitchell, and Gordon Lightfoot (who they made famous by being the first to record “Early Morning Rain”) and headlining at the now-famous 1963 Newport Folk Festival. Ian's composition "Four Strong Winds" is now considered a standard and a CBC poll in 2005 named it the "most essential" piece of Canadian music. Ian & Sylvia were one of the first artists to explore an electric Country Rock sound, recording with both New York and Nashville musicians.
In early 2019 Sylvia discovered a box of old 1/4" analog tapes in her attic that were professionally recorded in the early 1970s in front of a live studio audience. More than twenty previously unreleased recordings included many of Ian & Sylvia's classics, but also enough recordings that had never been included on any Ian & Sylvia album to make up a full album, presented here as a double vinyl release for RSD Black Friday.

LP1:
1 “Keep On The Sunny Side” 2 “Darcy Farrow” 3 “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” 4 “When First Unto This Country” 5 “Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies” 6 “Four Rode By” 7 “Nancy Whiskey” 8 “Four Strong Winds” 9 “Little Beggarman” 10 “The French Song” 11 “Summer Wages” 12 “Crazy Arms” 13 “I'll Fly Away”

LP2:
1 “After The Fire Is Gone” 2 “Heartaches By The Number” 3 “Sweet Dreams” 4 “Come On In My Kitchen” 5 “Jimmie's Texas Blues” 6 “How Long” 7 “The Last Thing On My Mind” 8 “That's The Way Love Goes” 9 “Crying Time” 10 “Starting All Over Again” 11 “Together Again” 12 “Silver Threads and Golden Needles” 13 “The Goodnight Loving Trail”

Julia Kent

Canadian cellist/composer Julia Kent’s celebrated 2011 second album Green and Grey gets its first vinyl release across two discs, on green and grey coloured vinyl (naturally). This RSD Black Friday release also features the Last Day in July EP which preceded the album, as well as two previously unreleased tracks from the album sessions. The double LP will be released in a gatefold sleeve, with artwork 'remixed' from the original album. Green and Grey explores the intersections between the human world and the natural world, the melding of the technological and the organic, using Kent’s now-trademark looped and layered cello, electronics, and field recordings. It references the patterns and repetitions that exist in nature often mirrored in human creations and also the complexity and fragility of our relationships, with one another and with the world that surrounds us.

SIDE A: 1. “Pleiades” 2. “Ailanthus” 3. “The Toll” 4. “Acquario”
SIDE B: 1. “Tithonos” 2. “Guarding the Invitations” 3. “Overlook” 4. “A Spire”
