180-gram vinyl reissue
Numbered, limited to 2,500 copies worldwide
Impex Records presents the all-analog, 180-gram LP: Art Blakey's seminal (and highly influential) Drum Suite.
For many classical music lovers, Beethoven’s eighth violin sonata lives in the long, fiery shadow of the ninth, better known as the “Kreutzer”. This is easy to understand, as the Kreutzer is a prime example of the stormy side of Beethoven—the one many listeners see as his most exciting and revealing trait. However, just as his eighth symphony is the kinder, gentler companion to his towering, formidable ninth, the eighth violin sonata, shorter and less aggressive than the ninth, shows a more lyrical side of Beethoven.
An historic collaboration by two of jazz music’s greatest artists is finally available on 180-gram 2-LP set. Impex Records’ deluxe production captures the amazing outdoor acoustics with fine detail and wide dynamic range. The beautiful gatefold jacket is coated in a vintage high-gloss lacquer and embellished in metallic ink. The White House Sessions, LIVE 1962 contains inspired performances of classic tunes “Take Five,” “Castilian Blues,” “Lullaby of Birdland,” and “I Left My Heart In San Francsico.” Impex Record is proud to bring you a performance unequaled, a recording unparalleled and the must-have audiophile release of this or any other year.

It’s simply one of the great funk albums, bouyed by three huge radio hits: “Shining Star,” “Reasons” and the title track. Says Rolling Stone: “Earth, Wind and Fire’s sixth album is make out music of the gods.”

This is the last time that Frances appeared on the cover of a Miles Davis album. Everything was going wrong with the couple, and they painfully separated at the end of 1965. In terms of music, however, things couldn’t have been better.
