Landmark 1992 Alternative Rock Album Features Cutting-Edge Production and Sound! 


Upon its original release on Warner Bros. Records in 1992, Faith No More’s Angel Dust stood apart in a field crowded with excellent alternatives. It still does. Wackier, wilder, and funnier than hit records from peers such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Tool, Primus, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the success of the California quintet’s fourth album helped land the band a prized opening slot on the Guns N’ Roses/Metallica stadium tour. The seemingly ill-fitting match still serves as a perfect metaphor for Angel Dust’s lasting appeal and eccentric brilliance. This is bold, visionary music that can’t resist the temptation of infiltrating the mainstream by walking right in through the front door and forcing everyone to take notice.

Singer Mike Patton is alone reason enough to warrant the attention of any self-respecting Frank Zappa, Brian Eno, Captain Beefheart, or Jane’s Addiction fan. He is the Man of 1000 Voices, constantly changing pitches, altering tones, utilizing noise filters, and twisting language to create personas and characters that give life to songs about midlife crises, adolescent frustrations, hillbilly living, and other sordid topics. And the clever black humor comes with a soundtrack that can’t be beat. Faith No More’s mix of prog-rock, hard funk, thrash metal, horror-film ambience, and cartoon music is a sonic funhouse that remains catchy and melodic no matter what directions the songs pull.  But the record’s greatest aspect may be its cutting-edge production.

Modeled on the dense, layered walls of sound that the Bomb Squad designed for Public Enemy, Angel Dust is rife with myriad textures, tones, and details that act as supports and balances. Remastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity has lifted the veil on the recording, exposing everything that lay in the grooves of in the film-score atmospheres and cinematic soundscapes. The clarity, richness, and openness enhance what’s already a singular listening experience.

After her breakthrough on Capitol Records with The Stone Poneys (Different Drum) plus some acclaimed solo releases, Linda Ronstadt jumped to David Geffen’s bourgeoning Asylum roster, joining The Eagles and Jackson Browne to form the genesis of the "California Country-Rock" sound. Don’t Cry Now, her first for Asylum was released in 1973 and would help solidify Ronstadt as one of the premiere female pop vocalists for the next two decades. This is one of the most exceptional sounding female vocalist recordings of the 1970's. Various tracks were produced by John Boylan, J. D. Souther; and, for the first time in what would be a long and highly successful relationship, British musician (Peter & Gordon) Peter Asher. The album spent more than a year on the Billboard chart and peaked at No. 45. Featured hit singles are the Eagles' "Desperado," Bonnie Raitt’s "Love Has No Pride," Randy Newman’s sly observation on slavery and southern culture "Sail Away" plus a nod to both Dusty Springfield and the Grand Ole Opry with "Silver Threads and Golden Needles." Guest appereances include guitar work by both the Eagles’ Glenn Frey and super-sessionman Larry Carlton, plus harmonica by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s Jimmy Fadden, bass and drums by L.A."A-teamers" Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel respectively, plus last but certainly not least, the legendary Sneaky Pete adding his tasteful pedal steel throughout....]]> <![CDATA[ Chicago - Chicago 17]]> <img src='' width='200' align='left' hspace='4' vspace='2'> <strong></strong> <hr> The Chicago that created the multiplatinum blockbuster Chicago 17 isn’t the band that started out as a jazz-rock ensemble interested in complex time changes or even the progressive AM pop group that it became in the 1970s. No, this is a collective that shoots for and attains popular glory via streamlined arrangements, unforgettable refrains, dramatic balladry, and timeless melodies. Hitching its wagon to Peter Cetera’s tender tenor croon, and bringing a new sound to the fore, Chicago redefines 1980s pop on this 1984 classic—setting the stage for the power ballads and sweeping slow-dance fare that would ultimately dominate the decade. Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited edition Gold CD reveals the genius behind David Foster’s production and warm, soulful passion of Cetera’s signature timbre. A blueprint for how stunning smooth pop-rock records should sound, this audiophile-grade reissue blooms with crisp, pristinely detailed sonic traits such as effervescent tones, gigantic walls of keyboard, and plush atmospheres. Cetera’s voice is so realistic and clear, it’s as if he’s singing to you and you only. Whether you view Chicago 17 as a guilty pleasure or all-time classic doesn’t matter. The numbers don’t lie. And neither do the surfeit of soft-rock hooks. The mere mentions of songs like “You’re the Inspiration,” “Stay the Night,” “Hard Habit to Break,” and “Along Comes A Woman” immediately trigger a flood of memories and sweetened choruses, each hit a lesson in the art of mellow persuasion, gentle communication, and sparkling songwriting. In maintaining an intimate vibe but making the grooves come on with widescreen proportions, cozy bass lines and sympathetic drum beats are elevated to previously unforeseen levels. The man behind the transformation, sonic mastermind David Foster, uses Chicago 17 as a canvas for exceptional backing harmonies and rejoinders. Along with Humberto Garcia, awarded the Grammy for Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical, Foster received the prestigious award for Best Instrumental Arrangement for his work on “Hard Habit to Break.”...]]>
