Elemental Music presents a newly remastered 180-gram LP reissue of an excellent 1964 jazz-bossa album: Paul Winter and Carlos Lyra’s sensational album The Sound of Ipanema, originally released by the Columbia label. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro, it features Lyra’s compositions and includes the essential Brazilian combo of that period: Sérgio Mendes (piano), Sebastião Neto (bass), and Milton Banana (drums). Winter was the only American on this album and he fit very well with the bossa spirit because of his lyrical and open-minded musical sensibility. The album was a smooth and engaging American-Brazilian fusion. Highlights of this gem are the bossa standards “Aruanda” and “Quem Quiser Encontrar O Amor”, originally composed by Carlos Lyra with Geraldo Vandré. The Sound of Ipanema is a delightfully fresh album, symbol of the golden years of Bossa Nova. Track listing: SIDE ONE 1. VOCÊ E EU (You and I) – Lyra-De Moraes 2.

360 Degrees Of Billy Paul BILLY PAUL LIMITED EDITION LP DELUXE 180-GRAM REISSUE including original artwork and printed inner sleeve with complete lyrics. Elemental Music, together with Sony Music Entertainment, present the best selection of 70’s R&B, Soul and Funk out of print titles from the vaults of classic labels such as Philadelphia International Records, Buddah or Columbia Records, among others.

Label: Elemental Music File Under: Soul/Funk Catalogue No: 810543 Barcode: 8435395501320 Price: FULL PRICE Format: 1 LP

Elemental Music proudly presents the most successful album of acclaimed and recently deceased Philadelphia singer Billy Paul: 360 Degrees of Billy Paul. Produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff and arranged by Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula and Norman Harris, this fantastic album was released in 1972 and includes the Grammy Award-winning number 1 pop and soul single “Me and Mrs. Jones” and its follow-up “Am I Black Enough for You?” which reached number 29 on the soul chart and number 79 on the pop chart. This was the first Billy Paul’s album for Philadelphia International and it was straight club jazz. Some of the songs of the album reflect the “message soul” that was popular in the early 70’s, namely “Brown Baby”, “I’m Just a Prisoner” & “Am I Black Enough for You.” In this masterpiece Billy Paul demonstrates that he is more than a singer; he’s an amazing interpreter. He uses his voice like Miles Davis used a trumpet. His vocal sounds just seem to flow out of him. He turns a simple ballad like Elton John’s “Your Song” into a soulful, breath-taking, up-tempo masterpiece. This is an amazing album from an artist who should have been as big as any R&B superstar of the 70’s. Track listing: Side One 1. BROWN BABY (K. Gamble-L. Huff) 2. I’M JUST A PRISONER (Gamble-Sigler-Hurtt) 3. IT’S TOO LATE (C. King-T. Stern) 4. ME AND MRS. JONES (Gamble-Huff-Gilbert) Side Two 1. AM I BLACK ENOUGH FOR YOU? (K. Gamble-L. Huff) 2. LET’S STAY TOGETHER (Mitchell-Green-Jackson) 3. YOUR SONG (E. John-B. Taupin) 4. I’M GONNA MAKE IT THIS TIME (J. Lang-B. Sigler)

En Studio GIANMARIA TESTA Seven CD box set of Gianmaria Testa's Studio albums with 152-page multilingual booklet. Includes the albums Montgolfieres (1995); Extra-Muros (1996); Lampo (1999); Il Valzer di in Giorno (2000); Altre Latitudini (2003); Da Questa Parte del Mare (2006); Vitamia (2011). Gianmaria Testa was born near Cuneo (in Italy’s Piedmont region) in 1958. He grew up in a farming family and was self-taught on the guitar, writing his first songs as soon as he learned his chords. Gianmaria played and sang in several local rock bands before discovering his true vocation as a solo artist. In 1993 and 1994 he won first prize at the Recanati Festival for emerging singer-songwriters, where he met a French producer (Nicole Courtois) who took a liking to his demo tape. His first CD, Montgolfières, came out on Label Bleu in 1995 and he went on to record seven studio albums and to release a further three live albums, for the French label le Chant du Monde. He became a major star in several European countries and further afield, his best-selling opus Il Valzer di in Giorno selling upwards of 80,000 units. Sadly though he never made it over to the UK before his death last year.

Gianmaria’s warm, husky voice tells stories of wind and memories, of the soil, the elements, of people, longing, loss and regret. His music is personal and richly melodic, flecked with accents of tango, bossa nova, habañera and jazz, but as spare and essential as a pencil sketch, imparting great beauty with simplicity and directness.
