Ian & Sylvia Tyson

Regarded as pioneers of the folk & Americana genre, Ian & Sylvia first came to prominence in the early ‘60s Greenwich Village and Yorkville folk scenes, performing alongside Bob Dylan (they were also managed by Albert Grossman), Joni Mitchell, and Gordon Lightfoot (who they made famous by being the first to record “Early Morning Rain”) and headlining at the now-famous 1963 Newport Folk Festival. Ian's composition "Four Strong Winds" is now considered a standard and a CBC poll in 2005 named it the "most essential" piece of Canadian music. Ian & Sylvia were one of the first artists to explore an electric Country Rock sound, recording with both New York and Nashville musicians.
In early 2019 Sylvia discovered a box of old 1/4" analog tapes in her attic that were professionally recorded in the early 1970s in front of a live studio audience. More than twenty previously unreleased recordings included many of Ian & Sylvia's classics, but also enough recordings that had never been included on any Ian & Sylvia album to make up a full album, presented here as a double vinyl release for RSD Black Friday.

LP1:
1 “Keep On The Sunny Side” 2 “Darcy Farrow” 3 “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” 4 “When First Unto This Country” 5 “Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies” 6 “Four Rode By” 7 “Nancy Whiskey” 8 “Four Strong Winds” 9 “Little Beggarman” 10 “The French Song” 11 “Summer Wages” 12 “Crazy Arms” 13 “I'll Fly Away”

LP2:
1 “After The Fire Is Gone” 2 “Heartaches By The Number” 3 “Sweet Dreams” 4 “Come On In My Kitchen” 5 “Jimmie's Texas Blues” 6 “How Long” 7 “The Last Thing On My Mind” 8 “That's The Way Love Goes” 9 “Crying Time” 10 “Starting All Over Again” 11 “Together Again” 12 “Silver Threads and Golden Needles” 13 “The Goodnight Loving Trail”

Julia Kent

Canadian cellist/composer Julia Kent’s celebrated 2011 second album Green and Grey gets its first vinyl release across two discs, on green and grey coloured vinyl (naturally). This RSD Black Friday release also features the Last Day in July EP which preceded the album, as well as two previously unreleased tracks from the album sessions. The double LP will be released in a gatefold sleeve, with artwork 'remixed' from the original album. Green and Grey explores the intersections between the human world and the natural world, the melding of the technological and the organic, using Kent’s now-trademark looped and layered cello, electronics, and field recordings. It references the patterns and repetitions that exist in nature often mirrored in human creations and also the complexity and fragility of our relationships, with one another and with the world that surrounds us.

SIDE A: 1. “Pleiades” 2. “Ailanthus” 3. “The Toll” 4. “Acquario”
SIDE B: 1. “Tithonos” 2. “Guarding the Invitations” 3. “Overlook” 4. “A Spire”
SIDE C: 1. “Missed” 2. “Dear Mr. Twombly” 3. “Wake Low” 4. “Oleander”
SIDE D: 1. “Ground” 2. “Last Day in July” 3. “Carapace” 4. “Salt Point”

Pylon

Athens, Georgia has always been a hotbed for creative independent music. There exists a spirit that can be hardly found anywhere else in the world. The band Pylon emerged in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s out of art school and combined this spirit with their new wave, post-punk jangle pop and would come to influence the American pop and alternative scenes for decades to come. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of their first release, New West Records is proud to partner with the band for a reissue of their first 7" single. 

SIDE A:.”Cool” SIDE B: “Dub”
