February 2023

2023 is off to a VERY busy start with some exciting new projects and reissues/remasters that will be announced soon.

I’m happy to announce that the Mystery Room Mastering website is now fully ADA compliant, making it easier for ALL to navigate.

Brooklyn noise-rock/punk rock band The Men have a new album out via Fuzz Club Records called “New York City” that was mastered here. It’s streaming everywhere, and you can order on CD or vinyl HERE.

Screeching Weasel just released a 30th Anniversary version of their 1993 Lookout! Records classic “Anthem For A New Tomorrow”. The remix was done by Mike Kennerty of The All-American Rejects and it was mastered here. It’s streaming everywhere now, and you can get in on vinyl in Europe from Striped Music, on vinyl in the US from Recess Records, and on compact disc from Rum Bar Records.

Lucero has reissued their 2002 classic album “Tennessee” on double vinyl. The 20th Anniversary repress was remastered here and lacquers were cut by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl in Memphis. All previous vinyl versions of this longer album were crammed onto two vinyl sides but this version is special because we were able to spread the audio out over three sides for better audio quality, and side D features a unique etching. You can order the new version from the Lucero merch store HERE.

For Record Store Day 2023 you can pick up a special 2xLP picture disc version of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s 1995 classic debut album “Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version” which was remastered here back in 2020 for its 25th Anniversary, and now available on vinyl via RHINO Records. Limited to 7500 copies. More info HERE.

It’s likely you’re not familiar with the 1972 album “Sing Along Junk” or even Gap Mangione (brother of Chuck Mangione) but Gap is an extraordinary jazz pianist whose music has been sampled by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Chance the Rapper, Ghostface Killah, Kendrick Lamar, and Talib Kweli to name a few.

“Sing Along Junk” features the much sampled “Diana in the Autumn Wind” and was recently remastered here at Mystery Room Mastering. It features the legendary Steve Gadd on drums, the also legendary Tony Levin on bass, and host of other great musicians. Available now on your streaming service of choice from Universal Music.

CJ Foeckler came by in early January to take some updated studio photos which you can find on the Mystery Room website. Here’s one of the photos:
