First two Richard Pryor albums get the reissue treatment - Icon Fetch

This pair of reissues from Omnivore offers the opportunity to rediscover these master class comedy records.

It seems superfluous to say the importance, impact and influence of Richard Pryor cannot be understated, both in black culture and to the world of comedy.  His jokes weren’t always jokes – they were often true stories whose punchlines were born of hard living and bitter personal experience.  H...

Hasaan Ibn Ali’s Metaphysics Renews Focus On A Lost Jazz Great - Audiophile Review

Digging into this new archival Hasaan Ibn Ali release from Omnivore Recordings called Metaphysics, I was taken with the shear beauty and passion of the music. While that first album with Max Roach is wonderful, this previously unreleased sophomore album would likely have been the first one credited solely to the artist. Playing with his own band, they sound like a unit here.

Before I could write this review of the fascinating new archival release from Omnivore Recordings by legendary-but-lost-to-the-ages jazz pianist Hasaan Ibn

Early Richard Pryor Records Restored, Expanded - News Leak - Stomp And Stammer

These artifacts from Pryor’s nightclub days, during which he was evolving from more conventional stand-up comedy into the raw, personal, unfiltered comedic genius he was quickly becoming, offer an illuminating, hilarious and frequently vulgar glimpse into an oft-overlooked period in the career of a man who’d probably be cancelled within a week were he to emerge during our current ultra-sensitive times.

Richard Pryor’s first two albums, individually out of print for . . .

Peggy Lee's 'Something Wonderful: Peggy Lee Sings The Great American Songbook' Out April 9

Over her seven-decade career, Peggy Lee, as both a singer and a songwriter, helped redefine what it meant to be a female singer, and her quietly captivating voice continues to resonate with audiences of all ages. What she accomplished as a woman, and as an artist, is nothing short of extraordinary.

Besides her renditions of American standard classics, songwriters Hoagy Carmichael, Matt Dennis, Frank Loesser and Johnny Mercer make rare duet appearances with Lee.

Matthew Sweet Catspaw The Swerve Magazine

The Swerve Magazine recently spoke with Sweet from his studio in Omaha, Nebraska, about the album, his career, and making music now in his fifth decade of doing so.

Some are calling “Catspaw,” Matthew Sweet’s recently released album, a sort of return to form of the days of “Girlfriend,” Altered Beast” and “100% Fun.”

Harry Dean Stanton With The Cheap Dates. October 1993. Omnivore Recordings

Aside from an album of songs lifted from the documentary, Partly Fiction, we really haven’t heard a true Harry Dean Stanton album.

Well, October 1993 rectifies that as it offers a set of songs recorded with a proper (and properly sh*tkicking band) which consists of Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (ex Steely Dan & Doobie Bros), Slim Jim Phantom (The Stray Cats), Tony Sales (Iggy Pop & David Bowie) along with Stanton’s long time musical compadre, Jamie James (The Kingbees).

It’s still hard to reconcile that we live in a world which no longer hosts Harry Dean Stanton, one of the coolest men who ever lived. Stanton, who died in 2017 at the age of 91, was perhaps the ess…

Craps (after hours) - Richard Pryor - The Serious Comedy Site

"Omnivore Recordings know how to release a comedy classic with class. I cannot wait to see what else they have coming up in comedy CDs. Kudos to all those who worked on reissuing Richard Pryor Craps. Richard Pryor Craps is available in both digital download and, thank God and Omnivore, CD format for serious comedy fans. If you are any kind of audiophile, you must take a look at the Omnivore Recordings website. They got everything from Little Richard and NRBQ to Ernie Kovacs and Mister Rogers records."

"As with previous reissues of their studio albums "Recorded Live at Waterloo Ice House" gives long overdue exposure to hidden gems from Uncle Walt's Band. Gilmore is quoted in the liner notes declaring "the three best singers in Austin were all in the same band," an observation given credence by this release."

Reissue CDs Weekly: Allen Ginsberg - At Reed College: The First Recorded Reading of Howl & Other Poems

"Before its 2007 discovery, the tape of this remarkable personal appearance sat in a box. Now, it can be heard by anyone. However it’s looked at, the extraordinary At Reed College: The First Recorded Reading of Howl & Other Poems is mind boggling."

“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix.” The opening words of Allen Ginsberg’s Howl are engrained.

REVIEW: Uncle Walt’s Band "Recorded Live at the Waterloo Ice House" is Impeccable Sound • Americana Highways

Out today!!! "Produced by Fletcher Clarke (the reissue produced by Mark Michel & Cheryl Pawelski). The set was recorded/restored (Michael Graves/engineer) impeccably to sound almost studio quality some 39 years since it was performed. The tunes were originally released as a private pressing (14 cuts) & some stand out more than others. Many covered by major artists since they were issued. "

Uncle Walt’s Band – Recorded Live at the Waterloo Ice House This trio of Austin, Texas artists captured live in 1982 (Omnivore Recordings, drops Feb. 5) includes previously unissued alternate takes; strap yourself in for a 21-cut collection with the late Walter Hyatt (guitar/vocals), the late De...
