  • Landreth Sonny - Recorded Live in Lafayette (2LP) (Käytetty LP/12)


    2LP set. Career-spanning, 16-track live document from the King Of Slydeco, divided into acoustic and electric halves! Recorded at the Acadiana Center For The Arts in Lafayette in January 2017.

    Sonny Landreth’s unique spin on guitar playing has made him legendary. He combines the slide with fretted notes; this finger picking technique helps him create a complex, multi-layered sound onstage. Along the way Landreth has continued to develop his vision and his musical voice, growing increasingly original and diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz into increasingly category- blurring musical excursions. The album Recorded Live in Lafayette is a perfect showcase of Landreth’s talents and skills; disc one contains a full acoustic set and disc two his full electric set.

  • Presley Elvis - Breakdown In Baltimore – 40 Years After Vol. 3 (2CD) (Käytetty CD)


    Double CD dedicated to Elvis’ May ’77 tour. This recording was taken directly from a recently found original audience recorded mastertape, taped by Elvis fan Linda from Washington.

    The Baltimore, May 29th, 1977 show was first released in 1994, on the poor sounding, incomplete CD ”SEND ME THE LIGHT… I NEED IT BAD!” In 2011, it was released again in better sound on the 2CD-set ”BALTIMORE NIGHTFALL”.

    Now STRAIGHT ARROW is coming with the ultimate release of this historic night. This concert was never before available in such good sound quality! 

    When The King made his last visit to Baltimore 40 years ago, no one knew he would be dead less than three months later. But many suspected that something was wrong.

    The Elvis Presley who took to the stage at the Civic Center on May 29, 1977, was not the Elvis most of his fans knew. Presley was no longer the sexy, virile, electric presence that revolutionized both the recording industry and live performing in his heyday. Still, his voice and charisma were present.

    As usual, Elvis opened the show with “See See Rider,” kicking off a set that included many of the classics, including “That’s All Right”, “Are You Lonesome Tonight,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,” a rare attempt at “The Wonder of You” and “It’s Now or Never.” It was reported that Elvis left the stage for 30 minutes, actually it was barely 20 minutes and after his return, Elvis performed knock-out versions of “Help Me”, “Hurt” and THE SONG of the evening: a fantastic version of “Unchained Melody”.

    The liner notes are taken from recent article, published on Aug. 10th, 2017 in the Baltimore Sun. This new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes rare photos taken in Baltimore. Another essential SA release, providing a fresh insight into what must have been a difficult night for Elvis. Despite obvious health issues, Elvis does his best to ‘deliver the goods’ to the fans, and especially the final part of the concert is both moving and heart-warming… He must have felt terrible, but still he pulled out all the stops to be Elvis Presley for his audience. A must, and a unique insight into the man’s will-power and love for his fans.

  • Presley Elvis - The King Strikes Back (10CD Boxset) (Käytetty CD)


    The Audionics label is proud to come up with a new, comprehensive 10CD project, dedicated to Elvis’ legendary Las Vegas Summer ’74 season. It is called  ”THE KING STRIKES BACK!“ and for the first time ever, all rehearsal and live soundboard recordings are presented in best possible sound quality and in one box!
    As you know, these recordings were released through the years by various bootleg labels and by the official collectors FTD label, too. Nevertheless, many of these original releases are hard to find nowadays, including several already deleted FTD CDs! For some of these recordings we have used audio tapes (master cassettes) as a source, rather than existing CD releases. We have spent dozens of hours in studio, to restore and enhance them. As usual, every recording was treated individually and restored from scratch, using today’s advanced technology to achieve the best possible sound quality for your optimal listening pleasure.

    Each disc is placed in individually designed cardboard sleeve and there is a 16-page booklet, full of high quality August/September 1974 photos (including several rare ones) and reproductions of fan reviews, published in the hard-to-find Rex Martin “Elvis News Service Weekly” magazine, back in 1974. These reviews are special, because they were published shortly after the concerts and those memories are immediate and fresh.

    This is the first-ever Audionics comprehensive box. It’s a special set which deserves a place in any serious Elvis collection!

  • Presley Elvis - A Brand New Cadillac, Honey! (Käytetty CD)


    A new double CD dedicated to Elvis’ April 1976 tour. It was short but very good tour, with Tony Brown and Ronnie Tutt replacing Shane Kiester on piano and Larrie Londin on drums.

    The Long Beach, April 25th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased. The Seattle, April 26th, 1976 show was first released by Millbranch Music (THE BICENTENNIAL KING VOL. 2 2010) from a rather bad, flat sounding tape source.

    Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copies of the original audience-recorded cassettess, which were not in circulation previously. Both shows were recorded by the same person. These enjoyable concerts were never before available in good sound quality until now!  As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Long Beach (2:30 pm) and Seattle and newspaper reviews of both concerts. Again – its new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

  • Presley Elvis - Stormy Weather 2CD (Käytetty CD)


    Double CD dedicated to Elvis’ August/ September ’74 season. This recording was taken directly from a recently found new source, a 1st generation copy of an original audience-recorded mastertape, never before in circulation! This fascinating, previously unreleased concert was never before available in such excellent sound quality!

    The penultimate show in Elvis’ August/September ’74 season was a memorable occasion, especially for British and European fans in attendance. Certain issues in Elvis’ personal life influenced what took place on stage at that Labor Day performance.

    The set list included several songs unique to this season: ”It’s Midnight”, ”Big Boss Man” and ”If You Talk In Your Sleep”, the latter with a karate demo midway. His song selection demonstrated his expertise in a great variety of musical genres: the sexy ’torch’ styling of ”Fever”; the sing-a-long ”The Wonder Of You”; the poignancy of ”You Gave Me A Mountain”; and the feel-good ”If You Love Me Let Me Know” and ”Let Me Be There”. Most of all, perhaps, Elvis touched first base musically with the stirring ”How Great Thou Art”.

    In between songs, he related stories ranging from the amusing to serious topics – the circumstances surrounding his divorce and the overblown stories in the movie magazines. Along the way, Elvis’ emotions ranged from undisguised anger (the drug stories) to tenderness – introducing Priscilla and their six-year old daughter Lisa Marie. Usually a private person, it was the presence of his ex-wife that prompted Elvis to speak about his divorce, while making it clear that he and Priscilla were still close.

    The liner notes are written by an English fan, who was there. This new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes rare photos taken in Las Vegas in August/September 1974.

  • Cadillac Three - Legacy (LP)


    2017 release. Leaving a lasting impression on fans with their high-octane live shows and chart-topping songwriting skills, The Cadillac Three continue to make their mark with Legacy, their follow up to 2016’s Bury Me In My Boots. With a sound all of their own that hovers between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock ballads and traditional Southern folk, the trio brings the same energy from their sold-out crowds into the studio. The Cadillac Three, originally known as The Cadillac Black, is an American Southern rock group consisting of Jaren Johnston (lead vocals, guitar), Kelby Ray (bass guitar, Dobro, acoustic guitar, vocals), and Neil Mason (drums, vocals).

    Including download code. Gatefold sleeve.

Taken straight from the 1st generation audience recorded master tape, this show features a fine show, with Elvis in good spirits, doing fine versions of ”Polk Salad Annie” ”My Way” ”Little Sister” among others, a very young Bruce Springsteen was in the audience this night, and he noted ”I remember enjoying the show tremendously” while also acknowledging ”It was not a good night”, we feel it’s up to you to judge what you think of this show.

  • Cody Jinks - Adobe Sessions 2LP (LP)


    Vinyl LP pressing. Cody Jinks’ credible grit and meaningful tattoos are no fad. They define exactly who he really is: someone who was raised on the sounds of country music and metal. Ultimately, Jinks found himself back to where it all began. His father loved the outlaw country icons: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and The Hag. That never ending consistency of incredible music growing up laid some very deep seeds and those early influences shine through his music. Jinks’ beloved 2015 album Adobe Sessions, his fourth overall, is available on vinyl for the first time with bonus track ”Fast Lane” and Side-D etching. ”In 2015 a great crop of fresh faces in country and Americana arose on many people’s radars,” writes Country Perspective. ”Hands down one of the best artists to emerge amongst this group was Cody Jinks…[His] 2015 album Adobe Sessions felt like the awaited breaking out of the next big star in the independent country scene. The album is full of traditional country, plenty of steel guitar and ballads on life and love.”

  • Presley Elvis - Everybody Let’s Rock – From Japan With Love Vol. 3 (Käytetty CD)


    Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 5th, 1972, D/S and M/S, this 2CD-set is subtitled ”From Japan With Love Vol. 3” because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.
    The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Dinner show was first released in 2008 on the CD ”Directly From The 1972 Elvis Summer Festival”. This earlier CD was taken from different, inferior source tape. Our new recording is of much better sound quality.

    The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased.

    There is no need to discuss the fact that ALL shows from August/September 1972 are excellent! Natural highlights are especially ballads like ”What Now My Love”, ”An American Trilogy”, ”My Way” or ”For The Good Times” and rock’n’rolls like „A Big Hunk O’Love” or ”Johnny B. Goode” One song from Midnight show stands out: a cool, one-off of ”Jailhouse Rock”! Needless to say that this is a rarity for 1972, and what a great version it is too – it easily beats all other 70’s versions.

    Both concerts are taken from a recently found first generation copies of original audience recorded cassette tapes. They were never before available in listenable sound, until now! You may ask your supplier for samples.

    This CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak with great collection of quality images taken in August 1972.
    If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as ”Rock & Soul… And Some Mighty Fine Rock’n’Roll” and ”The Make The World Go Away”, then you sure to enjoy our latest release.
    As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy it.

  • Teddy & The Tigers - Dancing Shoes – The Complete Masters Collection 1977-1980 (3-CD) (CD)



    Tässä kaikki Teddy & the Tigersin vuosina 1977-1980 julkaisemat äänitteet, yhteensä 79 kappaletta joista 24 on aiemmin CD:llä julkaisemattomia. Tämän keravalaistrion rooli 1950-luvun rock ’n’ rollin nousussa hetkeksi Suomessa mittavaksi muoti-ilmiöksi oli merkittävä ja yhtye myi lyhyessä ajassa lähes 100.000 levyä.

    Tamperelaisen levykaupppiaan Epe Heleniuksen vastaperustettu levy-yhtiö Poko Rekords julkaisi Tigersin Boppin’ –nimisen LP:n toukokuussa 1978, samanaikaisesti Eppu Normaalin debyyttialbumin kanssa. Boppin’ -levyn menestys antoi Pokolle lentävän lähdön. Levyn tuottoja investoitiin paitsi Eppu Normaaliin ja Popedaan myös Tigersin vielä jouluksi 1978 ilmestyneeseen toiseen albumiin Burn It Up, mikä räjäytti pankin lopullisesti. Levyn avauskappale Tiger Twist muodostui paitsi Tigersin, koko suomalaisen 1950-lukubuumin epäviralliseksi tunnuskappaleeksi, ja lennätti LP:n yli 35 000:n rockabillystä innostuneen suomalaisnuoren kotiin.

    Käytyään managerinsa Kari Heimosen johdolla syksyllä 1978 Lontoossa opintomatkalla katsomassa sen aikaisia brittiläisiä teddy boy -bändejä Tigers päätti kolmannella levyllään Rock-A-Billy Rebel hylätä balladit ja teinipopit ja sukeltaa rockabillyn rujoille alkulähteille. Omana aikanaankin suurelle yleisölle tuntemattomaksi jääneiltä artisteilta löydetyt primitiiviset lainabiisit olivat täysin uusia paitsi Tigersille, myös yhtyeen suomalaiselle yleisölle.

    Tukholmassa äänitetty ja toukokuussa 1979 ilmestynyt Rock-A-Billy Rebel –LP, saman vuoden syksyllä julkaistu Tiger Tracks sekä typistetyllä Tigers-nimellä tehty viides ja viimeinen albumi White Hot Rock (1980) ovat nyt julkaistavan uuden kokoelman kiehtovinta sisältöä siksi, etteivät ne ole olleet aiemmin saatavilla CD-muodossa. Nykyvinkkelistä kuunneltuna varsinkin Rock-A-Billy Rebel paikantuu kadonneeksi helmeksi. Se on suomalaisen kevyen musiikin historiassa ensimmäinen kokonainen albumi, jolla asiaan vihkiytynyt yhtye pyrkii soittamaan rockabillyä kutakuinkin niin kuin sitä soitettiin yli 20 vuotta aikaisemmin 1950-luvun Yhdysvaltain syvässä Etelässä; primitiivisesti ja ilman tukeutumista 1970-lukuisen listapopin soundeihin tai tuotannollisiin ideaaleihin.

    Dancing Shoes – The Complete Masters Collection 1977-1980 ei ole aikamatka sen paremmin amerikkalaisen kuin suomalaisen 1950-luvun kuvitteellisiin viattomuuden vuosiin. Sen sijaan nämä äänitteet tarjoavat – kuulijasta riippuen – nostalgisen tai eriskummallisen kurkistusreiän Kekkoslandian ajan kadonneeseen Suomeen, ja erääseen sen harvoista vaihtoehtoisista teinielämäntavoista.
