The Ahmad Jamal Trio
The Awakening

Reissue of the sought after deep trio session recorded in NYC - originally issued via the legendary Impulse! label back in 1970. The three cats responsible were bassist Jamil Nasser, Frank Gant on drums and of course Ahmad Jamal -- who it has been noted was an influence on Miles Davis. This timeless, revered work from one of Ja...view item »


Tommy Guerrero
A Little Bit Of Somethin'

What a beautiful little release. The album art pretty much sums up the sound on the LP, so as you can imagine, the tracks are mellow and guitar-y. A Little Bit Of Somethin' by Tommy Guerrero has been reissued on vinyl LP on Be With Records and would be a nice addition to the chilled out part of your record collection. ...view item »


Larry Jon Wilson
New Beginnings

Larry Jon Wilson may have one of the loveliest voices I've ever heard, and yet odds are, you've never heard of him. Be With Records have taken on the important task of reissuing his early work, New Beginnings being his debut album recorded after a decade in corporate America....view item »


Larry Jon Wilson
Let Me Sing My Song To You

Larry Jon Wilson is compelling proof that spending time in corporate America isn't all corrupting. He spent ten years in a suit before starting a career as a musician. On Let Me Sing My Song To You, his second album, Wilson flexes his distinct funky country style alongside a voice that feels like the w...view item »


Roisin Murphy
Overpowered

Overpowered (2007) was the second album by ex-Moloko singer Roisin Murphy. Murphy set out to make a pop/disco album and she succeeded. She took influence from the pre-house sounds of D-Train, Mantronix and Gwen Guthrie, whilst bei...view item »


The Necessaries
Event Horizon

A total rarity for over 35 years, even many Arthur Russell fans don't know about his involvement in this post punk band. He not only plays keyboard, cello and but contributed half the songs and sung in his unique style.  This is taut and muscular new wave though Russell's contributions sit weirdly at odds with the breezily ...view item »


Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Bennett
Synthesis

Brian Bennett & Alan Hawkshaw see their 1974 LP Synthesis reissued as part of Be With Records’ KPM Music Record Library series. Coming out in the same year as the pair's celebrated Synthesizer And Percussion album, Synthesis is another cutting-edge (for the t...view item »


Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Bennett
Synthesizer & Percussion

Alan Hawkshaw and Brian Bennett are among the creme de la creme of library music composers. For 1974’s Synthesizer And Percussion the pair chose to put the ARP synth - a relatively unexplored piece of gear at the time - through its paces. The resulting is a record of oddball jazz-funk ins...view item »


Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Bennett
Full Circle

While you might not know Alan Hawkshaw or Brian Bennett by name it’s quite likely that you’re familiar with their work. The library compositions of the pair have been sampled by everyone from Kanye West to Drake to The xx to Nas. The...view item »


Keith Mansfield / John Cameron
Voices In Harmony

Reissue fanatics Be With Records have recently snapped up the rights to some releases from the catalogue of KPM Music Recorded Library. KPM specialised in - yep - library music, so it’s no surprise to find a few records by the BBC’s Keith Mansfield on their roster. On 1973’s ...view item »


Nick Ingman
Distinctive Themes / Race To Achievement

Nick Ingman’s done it with the best of them. A distinguished arranger and conductor since the early 1970’s, Ingman has worked with everyone from Madonna to David Bowie to Paul McCartney down the years. Back in 1976 he released Distinctive Themes/Race To Achieveme...view item »


Alan Hawkshaw / Brian Bennett / John Fiddy
Hot Wax

In 1976 a trio of acclaimed session musicians and library/film/TV composers came together to create an LP for the KPM Music Recorded Library that showcased ‘the latest trends in production music’. Said album? Hot Wax. Said artists? Brian Bennett (a former Cliff Richard & The...view item »


Keith Mansfield / Alan Hawkshaw / David Snell
Big Business / Wind Of Change

This LP may have the names Alan Hawkshaw and David Snell on the spine, but the bulk of the work here is done by Keith Mansfield (he of the Grandstand theme fame). For this 1973 album now reissued by Be With Records, Mansfield crafts a series of pomp-and-circumstance ins...view item »


Francis Coppieters
Piano Viberations

Yes, it is meant to be spelled like that. Piano Viberations is named as such because it is a record of incidental jazz where piano and vibes take centre-stage. The work of little-known Belgian pianist/composer Francis Coppieters, this is perhaps the most intriguing of Be With Records’ current crop...view item »


Alan Parker
The Sound Of Soul

Originally released in 1976 as the instrumental accompaniment to Themes International's The Voice Of Soul, Alan Parker’s much-coveted record of library-soul now gets reissued by Be With Records. Original copies of The Sound Of Soul regularly fetch mega-money on ...view item »


Alan Parker & Madeline Bell
The Voice Of Soul

The Voice Of Soul is a library-soul LP by session singer Madeline Bell and composer Alan Parker. Originally released in 1976, the record is notable for two reasons - being issued simultaneously with its instrumental album The Sound Of Soul, and for ‘Love Is All’ and ‘You&rsquo...view item »


James Clarke
Mystery Movie

Back in the 1970’s it was the job of people like Themes International Music Records and the KPM Music Recorded Library to keep up with the new demand for library sounds. In 1974 the former commissioned James Clarke to come up with an album of tense incidental sounds for them to keep on fil...view item »


Buari
Buari

Interesting bloke, this Sidiku Buari. According to his Wikipedia page, the Ghanaian has been president of the Musicians Union Of Ghana, the vice-president of the International Federation Of Musicians, studied for degrees in both music and interior design and won medals as a sprinter at two All-Africa Games championships. Impress...view item »


Plush / Liam Hayes
Korp Sole Roller

Liam Hayes initially recorded for Domino under the Plush moniker. Since leaving Domino, however, he has seemingly had difficulty getting records released. Korp Sole Roller, Hayes’ fourth album, treads a similar path to previous releases: echoes of Burt Bacharach and Jimmy Webb...view item »


Air
Air

A jazz/soul/prog-rock classic from 1971, Air’s self-titled album is something of a rarity. Thankfully, Be With Records are highly skilled at their reissues, and Air is no exception. They’ve recreated the exact original release, including beautiful artwork - but with remaster...view item »


Willie Hutch
Soul Portrait

Willie Hutch signed to Motown in the ‘70s. After the legendary Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, Motown was all about Willie Hutch. His nine album run for Berry Gordy’s label included two classic blaxpl...view item »


Kimiko Kasai with Herbie Hancock
Butterfly

Reissue of a previously Japan-only LP here. Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai teamed up with a band led by Herbie Hancock in 1979 to record this collection of covers. Many of them are smooth-as-silk versions, with Kasai’s beautiful voice floating over languid soul-jazz instrumentals. Closes out with a rambuncti...view item »


Sorcerer
White Magic

After Dan Judd dropped the first LP from his Sorcerer project in eight years back in 2017, it seemed like a good time for Be With Records to reissue his two earlier full-lengths. Moreover, the poly-genre style of White Magic was oddly prescient at the time, and heard a decade on the album’s mish-m...view item »


Sorcerer
Neon Leon

Sorceror’s Neon Leon was a likable record when it was first released in 2009, and it remains a likable record now that it’s being reissued in 2018. Different cover artwork and a remastering job have given this LP a new lick of paint, but at heart it’s still a collection of gently playful cosmic disco t...view item »


Batteaux
Batteaux

This is a much needed re-issue of this sampled folk funk classic from 1973 which has been described as proto Yacht Rock. Melodic sun dappled songs with hints of country rock that stand pretty well against the likes of Crosby Stills and Nash whilst being underground and cool enough to be sampled by MF Doom. ...view item »


Tommy Guerrero
Soul Food Taqueria

Genre-hopping musician and skateboarding legend Tommy Guerrero’s 2003 release Soul Food Taqueria returns as a 2LP reissue from Be With Records. The music dabbles in groovy, guitar-led soul-funk, often with a touch of melancholy. It’s warmly produced and as effectively as relaxed as was Tommy’s skating....view item »


Willie Hutch
Season For Love

Willie Hutch signed to Motown in the ‘70s. After the legendary Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, Motown was all about Willie Hutch. His nine album run for Berry Gordy’s label included two classic blaxploitation soundtracks: Foxy Bro...view item »


Korallreven
Here In Iowa Remix EP

Korraleven are no longer a going concern, having bowed out with the original version of Here In Iowa. But they are surely allowed this little bonus release, which gathers some assorted treats together, including a Peaking Lights remix and a live cover of Guns & Roses’ ‘N...view item »


Cassie
Cassie

This is the first release on vinyl of electro R&B star Cassie's self titled, instant classic debut album. This ten track masterpiece of minimalist R&B has influenced a host of her contemporaries including Jamie xx, Four Tet, Hot Chip and Tri Angle Records since it’s original CD release in 2006 and it's not hard to see how with it&r...view item »
