Various
For Discos Only: Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records (1976-1981)

Various - 'For Discos Only: Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records (1976-1981)' is a huge 5LP or 3CD box set that contains a bunch of artists who can stake their claim in making music that ultimately led to techno, house and in some cases, hip-hop. Sylvester, Fat Larry’s Band, Ike and Tina Turner, Free Expression and Home Grown Funk all make appearances. I’m sure the label won’t find out if you play the records in your front room, despite what it says on the cover.

R.E.M.
The Best Of R.E.M. At The BBC

You'll have to be a pretty big R.E.M fan to wade through the various sessions and live performances on the big bumper CD box set that accompanies this release. So how about this truncated version on both LP and CD  - a briefer flit through the best bits of the band's performances over the years at 'Auntie' as Wogan used to call it.

R.E.M
R.E.M. At The BBC

More audio than you could ever need of R.E.M performing at the BBC. This follows the band from their legendary 1985 performance at Rock City (the first time many UK fans got a proper taste of Stipe & co) all the way through to later live performances, session tracks and most excitingly perhaps, a DVD of all their television performances.

Isaac Hayes
Hot Buttered Soul

On only his second album, Issac Hayes had managed to acquire complete artistic control, resulting in one of the most groundbreaking soul albums of any era. Containing only four long tracks, the album is dominated by Hayes’ legendary elongations of Walk On By and By the Time I Get to Phoenix. New remaster, housed in a tip-on jacket.

Isaac Hayes
Shaft

Here’s a soundtrack whose enduring impact and influence outweighs that of its parent film. Besides the ubiquity of the title track, this mostly instrumental double is the best-selling Stax LP, and was harvested for samples by 2Pac, Lil’ Kim and Dr. Dre. With Hayes being mostly relegated to songwriting, the focus is more on The Bar-Kays, who get to stretch out to the max on Do Your Thing. Remastered double LP in tip-on sleeve.

Isaac Hayes
Black Moses

On his massive 1971 double, Hayes puts his own stamp on hits by the Jackson 5,  Dionne Warwick and the Carpenters. Its enduring influence led to Ike's Rap II being sampled by both Tricky and Portishead. And as if the messianic and expansive vibes weren’t coming through strongly enough, the uncompromising title was represented by a cruciform fold-out sleeve, replicated in all its glory here.

Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane
The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings

A sweet sweet series of sessions recorded by two of the biggest jazz heavyweights out there: Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane! The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings is a rather gorgeous set of three vinyl LPs, nestling the records in a nice dossier-folder of a box, along with a booklet of essays, artwork and photos. On Craft Recordings.
