Holly Cole Trio – Don’t Smoke In Bed – 200 gram vinyl

Multiple styles displayed on Holly Cole’s 1993 sophomore album

Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original master tapes

Plating and 200-gram vinyl pressing by Quality Record Pressings!

Old-style gatefold tip-on jacket by Stoughton Printing

Holly Cole brings her own dimension to the tradition of cabaret, a strong voice that’s still capable of nuance, an ear for quirky repertoire, and a light touch that keeps some of these performances floating just at the edge of irony.

On her second album, 1993’s Don’t Smoke in Bed, Cole explores varied musical styles, adding pop, blues, country and a French ballad to her standard, low-key jazz. It’s a favorite of ours, which is why for this Analogue Productions reissue we’ve given it the reissue treatment it deserves. Bernie Grundman did the mastering, from the original analog tapes, at his Los Angeles studio, giving this release a spectacular foundation. Plating and pressing on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl was done by Gary Salstrom and crew at Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world’s finest-sounding LPs. Lastly we wrapped up the whole package in a premium gatefold tip-on jacket from Stoughton Printing. There’s nothing but aces in this smokin’ hot reissue and the quality shines through.

Holly’s delivery of more traditional fare shines on Cole Porter’s witty “Get Out of Town” and Kurt Weill’s torchy “Je Ne T’aime Pas,” while she brings clarity, power, and anthemic passion to the surprising treatment of Johnny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now.” She’s generally well supported in this intimate set by pianist Aaron Davis and bassist Davd Piltch, while there’s sparing and effective use of strings. There are fine guest spots by tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, on “Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday,” and David Lindley, whose steel guitar contributes to the strange country music of “Don’t Let the Teardrops Rust Your Shining Heart.”

Analogue Productions

Analogue Productions It was in 1992 that Acoustic Sounds owner Chad Kassem reissued his first Analogue Productions title, Virgil Thompson's The Plow That Broke The Plains, originally on Vanguard. Analogue Productions began as a vehicle for Kassem to license his favorite all-time recordings and reissue them as remastered and as a superior version to the original release. Since its inception AP has reissued hundreds of titles, ranging from classical to folk, pop, rock, blues and jazz. Included in the many highlights of Analogue Productions' history are the Fantasy 45 Jazz Reissues, the Blue Note Reissues, and premium box sets of the music of such legendary acts as The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nat "King" Cole and Norah Jones. True to its name, Analogue Productions works with the original analogue master tapes - more than any other reissue label! The result is superior sound - richer, warmer and more lifelike, than digital.
