60th Anniversary of legendary jam session! Limited edition 10” vinyl

THMILLION DOLLAR QUARTET

Featuring: Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash

OUT NOW!

2016 marks the 60th Anniversary of a one-off meeting of rock’n’roll giants at Sun Studios on December 4th 1956. Consequently the recordings made on that day by the so-called Million Dollar Quartet really do have legendary status, and now they have been newly-remastered and pressed as a heavyweight audiophile-quality double LP on 10" vinyl.

Carl Perkins was completing a recording session at which Jerry Lee Lewis had been playing piano for him when Elvis Presley dropped by to visit his old friends at Sun, where he had made his first seminal recordings a couple of years earlier. The scene was set for an extraordinary, impromptu jam session which was fortunately recorded for posterity by Sam Phillips. Supported by Carl Perkins' band, Elvis, Carl and Jerry spontaneously run through a mixture of popular songs of the day, country favourites as well as old country-gospel tunes which so influenced the  trio.

Charly Records are proud to support Record Store Day 2016

Charly Records - proud supporters of

STOP PRESS!

Our special Record Store Day releases are all out there, spread far and wide. Early feedback from retailers and fans indicates each is going to be hugely sought after so we hope you find what you want on Saturday 16th April.

As an extra special incentive to support our record shops, we have randomly distributed a strictly limited edition 13th Floor Elevators Tote Bag. If you're lucky enough to grab an Elevators 10-inch picture disc, ask for a bag - your local store just might have one.

Just 150 have been produced exclusively for UK stores: Roky Erickson has five after his superb show at London's Forum on Wednesday night while the rest were sent out to UK shops. The few we have left will be dropped into stores local to us in London during Saturday so its worth asking for - even if the first batch have gone. Good luck!

Charly Records are proud to support Record Store Day 2016 with four limited edition singles on 7, 10 and 12-inch vinyl exclusively available only on April 16. The releases show the diversity and range of Charly’s catalogue across its many legendary labels and classic artists and preview exciting new anniversary releases happening later in the year. Timeless hits together with rare recordings have been gathered from the archive and packaged beautifully in full-colour picture sleeves and pressed on coloured vinyl and picture disc, all of which are sure to sell out on Record Store Day. Support your local retailer and queue early!

SMALL FACES
THE AUTUMN STONE

7-inch Gold Vinyl Picture Sleeve & Picture Label
Immediate Records IM083

PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SINGLE MIX FINALLY RELEASED AFTER ALMOST 50 YEARS…
Originally planned as a single in 1968, the mono mix of Steve Marriott’s ’The Autumn Stone’ was never released due to Immediate label boss Andrew Loog Oldham's dislike of the song (the title of which he later used for the final Small Faces album!). In preparing the definitive expanded remaster of ‘The Autumn Stone’ album, a tape was discovered containing the unissued mono single mix. Coupled with ‘Me You And Us Too’, an early version of ‘Wham Bam Thank You Mam’ (the original intended b-side) the single is limited to 3,000 copies worldwide. Pressed on “autumn gold” vinyl under the unused original Immediate catalogue number, IM083, the single is packaged in a full colour picture sleeve and label that reproduce Gered Mankowitz’s original artwork and photos.

The Late Great Townes Van Zandt with bonus tracks

Following on the heels of our vinyl reissue, Charly is delighted to present The Late Great Townes Van Zandt, the latest in our critically acclaimed reissue programme of the singer/songwriter’s enduring catalogue.  Released in an attractive sleeve pac, the CD comes complete with booklet and four bonus tracks. 

Produced by Jack Clement and regarded by many as the Texan troubadour’s definitive work, the album includes such Van Zandt classics as ‘No Lonesome Tune’, ‘If I Needed You’ and ‘Pancho And Lefty’, the latter going on to become his most commercial success, while oblique and mysterious ballads such as ‘Sad Cinderella’ and ‘Silver Ships of Andilar’ bear testament to the artist’s intention to write songs so strange that “nobody knows what they mean, not even me.”
