Elusive Disc Mailout 21 March 2008

 

1-800-782-3472         sales@elusivedisc.com  
Twenty years ago, Cisco Music started importing audiophile reissues from King and Three Blind Mice. In 1992 they began making their own records. Cisco's hands-on work ethic and deliberate attention to detail with artwork, mastering and production is evident in the sound quality and craftsmanship of each title that they have released. Cisco Music has come to be known as the source for the finest quality records in the world.

Due to a recent and severe downturn in the Japanese music industry, Cisco International Corp. has been forced to downsize their operations to remain profitable. As soon as production on Famous Blue Raincoat 45-rpm and Gold CD is complete Cisco Music will be no more. We are in the process of purchasing as much of Cisco's remaining inventory as possible in an effort to delay the eventual demise of their fine catalog of music.

"Cisco's presence will be greatly missed in our industry! We wish the best for all the Cisco staff affected by these unfortunate circumstances." – Robert Bantz / President Elusive Disc, Inc.

Shelby Lynne / Just A Little Lovin'
Universal Lost Highway 180g LP $12.99
Just a Little Lovin' is the first album by Shelby Lynne following her release from Capitol Records and her first with Lost Highway. Shelby covers Dusty Springfield songs on a simple, no-frills recording with her smooth, sultry voice. The album is rounded out by a solitary Lynne original, "Pretend." It was recorded straight to analog tape at Los Angeles' Capitol Studio A. Simply beautiful!

"Everyone with a turntable should own this album!
At $12.99 is almost like stealing!"
– Bob Bantz / President Elusive Disc, Inc.

NEWLY REPRESSED! Sounds fabulous, highly recommended!


"The more you listen to Just a Little Lovin', the more it becomes clear that, while it's not a pairing that might have immediately sprung to mind…Lynne and Springfield aren't all that far apart in tone, delivery, and emotional wallop. While Dusty could ornament a musical line and accent lyrics in indelible ways that escape Lynne, the younger rebel does a creditable job of catching just enough of Dusty's mojo to show that she understands what made the originals so powerful."Robert Baird, Stereophile Magazine, March 2008, 4 Stars for Performance and Sonics!

"(Lynne) wields her flexible cords like a bullwhip and a balm, searing and soothing in the same phrase. She doesn't just take on Springfield classics like 'Breakfast in Bed' or 'The Look of Love.' Lynne goes one better, making the songs her own with clever phrasing and steamy tempos… Lovin' captures that vintage, elegant mood. Sonics are warm, wide, and rich in detail and transparency." Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, March 2008, Issue 180, Rating 4 out of 5 for music, 4 1/2 out of 5 for sonics!
