Dr John
In The Right Place

I once literally bumped into Dr. John in a corridor at Manchester University. He won't remember. This is a 2LP re-press of this 1973 album which turned out to be the biggest selling of his career. Cut from the original analogue masters, you'll hear Top 20 hits like 'Right Place, Wrong Time' sounding the way they are supposed to. ...view item »

The Notorious B.I.G
Life After Death

Rhino are commemorating the 20th anniversary of the release of Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death with a triple LP reissue. Originally released less than two weeks after his murder the album lived up to it’s title and brought some of the most well known tracks in hip hop, dealing with violent streets and ga...view item »

Cibo Matto
Viva! LA Woman

Cibo Matto (‘crazy food’ in Italian) were a New York duo with sharp creative instincts and a sense of fun! Their debut full-length Viva LA Woman was first released in 1996, where it absorbs the period’s popular trip-hop sound and views it through a New York ...view item »

Syd Barrett
The Madcap Laughs

‘The Madcap Laughs’ is the debut solo album by the English singer-songwriter recorded after Barrett had left Pink Floyd. That appears to be the pree release we were given. It is, intermittently, one of the finest albums of its era. Not slick by any stretch of the imagination but full of left field ideas.   ...view item »

Syd Barrett
Barrett

‘Barrett’ was the eponymous Pink Floyd frontman's second and last solo record, produced by his fellow bandmembers Rick Wright and David Gilmour. It's a collection of blues jams and psych rock that recalls artists such as the Byrds. The record has been reissued courtesy of Rhino Records.    ...view item »

Ornette Coleman
The Atlantic Years

Ornette Coleman completists need look no further than this luxury box set. Atlantic have remastered the ten records he made for the label between 1959 and 1962 - that means The Shape Of Jazz To Come, Free Jazz, This Is Our Music and more. They’ve packaged them alongside a book of...view item »

Tom Waits
Nighthawks At The Diner

Waits’ third album is arguably the pinnacle of his early beatnik barfly persona. Taking a different approach to his more mannered previous albums, the 1975 LP was recorded live in a pseudo small club setup. It’s jazzy and deceptively loose and boozy, though Tom knows exactly what he’s doing, whether delivering jokey banter or v...view item »

The Streets
Original Pirate Material

The classic debut before he went a bit soft. This was genuinely thrilling back in 2002 and it's combination of UK garage/hip-hop and Mike Skinner's lyrical observations were a unique and fascinating combination. Now we have Sleaford Mods a lot of his work sounds a bit....meh... but this is the good one and still sounds fresh.&nb...view item »

Love
Forever Changes (50th Anniversary Edition)

One of the greatest albums of all time reaches 50 but, with multiple re-issues down the line already, what will they squeeze out of it this time? Well you get mono and stereo mixes, an alternate mix, and a disc of outtakes - some of which are actually pretty darned good. Superb pastoral psychedelic pop that has influenced generations. Every home...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
London Sessions

This album takes LCD Sound System's studio-perfect album recordings and puts them in a live setting (albeit still in a studio). This breathes some new life into their songs. The live performances have a little more edge and a little more excitement. The album starts off with a tantalising "Us V. Them" and doesn't let up from there. My favourite ...view item »

Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures

Debut album by Salford post-punkers Joy Division. Recorded in April 1979, Martin Hannet's unique production techniques and Ian Curtis's doomed lyrics and monotone vocal lend the album a downbeat greatness that has been often emulated yet rarely surpassed. One of only two albums recorded by the band before Curtis's tragic suicide in 1980. ...view item »

Joy Division
Closer

Second and final LP by doomed Salford post-punk band Joy Division, this is perhaps most often cited their greatest moment. Recorded shortly before the untimely death of singer Ian Curtis, whose health deteriorated rapidly during the making of this album, and produced by Martin Hannet. Limited edition vinyl reissue.  ...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
LCD Soundsystem

A re-issue (though not approved by the band) of LCD Soundsystem's debut LP from back in 2005. This is the one that contains the now classic 'Daft Punk Is Playing In My House' and first shot the magpie like enthusiasm of James Murphy's disco and post punk influenced production on to an unsuspecting but ready to dance world.  ...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver

LCD Soundsystem's second release differs significantly from their debut, however not to let that discourage as it offers its own merits. Sound Of Silver feels as it can act to the low near or after the end of the party, with their first album being the party, offering songs like 'Someone Great' which elicits an emotional response which can reson...view item »

Ramones
Ramones

1, 2, 3, 4! As one of the most influential documents in rock’n’roll history, Da Brudders’ 1976 debut hardly warrants an introduction. Still, it’s always a shock to hear how raw and minimal the Craig Leon-produced album is. And all done and dusted in 29 minutes, baby. This LP reissue is cut from analogue m...view item »

The Ramones
Road To Ruin

The Ramones fourth album is another classic album. Tommy was replaced by Marky on the drums on this album, but Tommy was still around as the group's producer. The group's sound "matured" somewhat on this album, but still stayed true to their punk roots. Just about all the songs here are classics, with "I Wanna Be Sedated" being a classic among c...view item »

Tori Amos
Under The Pink

A reissue campaign of famed singer-songwriter Tori Amos’s work begins with her first albums, pressed to 180g vinyl by Rhino. Under The Pink is her second album, first released in 1994, hitting #1 in the UK. Contains the hit single ‘Cornflake Girl’, as well as ‘Past The Mission’, which featu...view item »

The Replacements
All Shook Down

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1990’s All Shook Down is one of them. This is the band’s final studio album, recorded largely by Paul Westerberg as a solo album staffed by session musicians but later developed into a full-blown Replacements...view item »

Ramones
Leave Home

Almost as good as "Ramones". Better production, but the songs are a little 'samey'. For anyone getting into the Ramones, the first four albums are all essential. The guitars are double-tracked, giving it a much fuller (and live sounding) sound than their first record. And their are none of the sound-softening acoustic guitars that they began usi...view item »

The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions. This gives them a rawer feel to their album contemporaries but unlike many session compilations this works pretty brilliantly as an album. It also contains early singles and B sides showcasing some of their very best song...view item »

The Smiths
Louder Than Bombs

This is the Smiths album I would give a friend if they wanted to know what the Smiths sounded like. There are 24 amazing tracks on here full of the MOZ wit and the MARR guitar sound. This album reads almost like a greatest hits series. I can't think of one song on here that lacks that Wilde wit and bittersweet feeling that Moz delivers in his so...view item »

New Order
Power, Corruption & Lies

New Order’s second full-length achieves a fine balance between electronic and guitar-based music. While the preceding Movement LP was the work of a band who couldn’t quite shake off the weight of their past as Joy Division, Power, Corruption and Lies and the contemporary Blue Monday 12” saw them define a singul...view item »

Tori Amos
Boys For Pele

A 180g double vinyl LP reissue of Tori Amos' classic 1996 album, Boys For Pele. On her third full length studio release, classically trained solo artist Tori Amos injects her introspective songwriting into an experimental yet accessible alternative/baroque-pop format, with lyrical them...view item »

The Doors
The Doors

There’s so much to be said of The Doors but the only words truly worth listening to are those that the band recorded to wax and there cannot be any better starting point than their eponymous debut album. An electrifying LP with heavy hitters such as Break on Through (To The Other Side) and Soul Kit...view item »

The Smiths
Meat is Murder

Never widely considered to be their best album but this is a superb effort. It contains one of their most unusual and memorable songs in 'The Headmasters Ritual', add in to that the twin rainy day melancholy ballads 'Well I Wonder' and 'That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore', the surprising funk workouts of 'Barbarism Begins At Home' and the disturbing ...view item »


Jackie Brown OST

Original Soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 crime film Jackie Brown. Tarantino has always be renowned for his film scores, and the perfect selections that go alongside his violent films that make them iconic. Featuring tracks from Bobby Womack, Johnny Cash, Minnie Ripe...view item »

The Replacements
Tim

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1985’s Tim is one of them. Tim was the band’s first album for a major label and it remains a high-point of their discography: indeed, it is a key piece of the US alternative-rock puzzle. It contains the hit songs ‘Bast...view item »

Air
Moon Safari

Remastered version 12” vinyl on Rhino. Moon Safari was the album that rocketed Air into, well, space. Couldn’t go to any record shop, or turn on any TV channel without hearing Sey Boy or Kelly Watch the Stars. Now it’s had the full treatment and back on vinyl. Comes with download code...view item »

Talking Heads
More Songs About Buildings And Food

This is the second Talking Heads record and the first with Brian Eno on board. On this album the rhythm section is brought to the fore and points towards the more dance-able Talking Heads of the near future which can be found on record...view item »

The Replacements
Hootenanny

Hootenanny was the second album by Minneapolis band The Replacements. It was originally released in 1983. The album is notable for singer and guitarist Paul Westerberg swapping instrumental duties with drummer Chris Mars and Tommy and Bob Stinson swapping bass and guitar duties. It also included a ...view item »

Television
Marquee Moon

Television were integral to the New York punk scene of the 1970s that centred around the CBGBs club situated in Manhattan’s dingy Lower East Side. Whilst the music was more complex, with longer songs than the punk movement was known for, it is said that front man Tom Verlaine...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
This Is Happening

Here we have the new LCD Soundsystem album. One of those bands that sounds so great from how people describe it and then once you hear it yourself you feel kind of let down. This album starts out quite quiet with whiny vocals and indistinct electronics before a big fat squelchy synth comes in and the whole thing rises up to a new level. The voca...view item »

The Monkees
Good Times!

I've just lurched from reviewing the latest Huerco S album of distilled ambience straight into the prefab pop of these now seriously ageing 1960s telly favourites. There was always more to the Monkees than cavorting about on tv of course and this (what must be their) swan song LP has been tastefully created by including covers of songs b...view item »

Wilco
Being There (Deluxe Edition)

Being There was the second album to be released by Wilco. 1996 was a fruitful time for Jeff Tweedy and Co. as they had enough high quality songs to fill a double album. The rich, creative period is borne out by this reissue which is spread over 5 CDs or 4 LPs and includes previously unreleased tracks, live stuff...view item »

Wilco
A.M. (Deluxe Edition)

Following on from his days in Alt. Country trailblazers Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy formed Wilco. A.M. was their first album, originally released in 1995. It  mixed frazzled alt. Country with a Rolling Stones rock swagger. Now it has been reissued as a Deluxe Edition with eig...view item »

Son Volt
Straightaways

Repress of Son Volt’s now two decade old sophomore album, Straightaways. Smooth and heartfelt alternative country rock with plenty of guitar twang built around ex-Uncle Tulepo singer/songwriter Jay Farrar’s warm, emotive voice. Pressed on 180g vinyl. Just make sure you don’t mention Wilco....view item »

Phoenix
It's Never Been Like That

Album number three from those slick Parisian pop fellows Phoenix. It’s Never Been Like That was something of a hit on initial release in 2006, pleasing listeners across the spectrum with its mixture of soft rock textures, pop melodies, and louche Frenchness. Reissued in a vinyl format by Rhino....view item »

Morrissey
Bona Drag

This 1990 compilation of Morrissey’s first run of singles and b-sides made for one of his best albums. Besides the hits (Sudehead, Everyday Is Like Sunday, November Spawned A Monster), he’d continued the Smiths tradition of hiding the odd gem on a b-side or the flip of a 12” (the self-depr...view item »

Air
Talkie Walkie

Rhino Records are in the midst of a campaign of reissuing the discography of Air, the smooth, loungey French synth-charmers. Talkie Walkie first came out in 2004, and is suitably Airy - and I don’t just say that because of the pun, this album feels like an early summer evening in the park with a l...view item »

Sepultura
Roots (Expanded Edition)

After the tremendous success of Chaos A.D., this 1996 album saw Sepultura taking a further step away from their thrash metal, um, roots, with a groove-based approach that married traditional Brazilian rhythms and chants with contemporary nu-metal stylings. Guests included Mike Patton and members of Korn...view item »

Talk Talk
It’s My Life

This is the one where things started to change. Producer and multi instrumentalist Tim Friese-Green was drafted in and immediately set about turning the previous 'new romantic image' into something more special. Still the hits kept coming with 'Such a Shame', 'Dum Dum Girl' and the stellar title track beautifully combining mainstream pop and sop...view item »

Ramones
Rocket To Russia

40th anniversary edition of the Ramones third album Rocket to Russia. This one features many of their most classic songs such as  'Sheena Is A Punk Rocker' and 'Rockaway Beach'. This edition contains two dozen rare and unreleased tracks plus a never before heard recording of their show at the Apollo, Glasgow i...view item »

Talk Talk
The Party’s Over

It still beggars belief that this record was made by the same people who made 'Laughing Stock'.  This is Talk Talk in full throes of their early 'new romantic' sound. Having supported Duran Duran there is a certain similarity in sound but even when in synth pop excess mode Talk Talk were clever and literate...view item »

Sepultura
Chaos A.D. (Expanded Edition)

Belo Horizonte in Brazil is famous for two things: England’s disastrous 2014 world cup campaign and Brazilian metal band Sepultura. It is the latter we’re here to talk about however, as their classic fifth album from 1993, Chaos A.D. is being reissued as a 2LP or 2CD set. It is remaste...view item »

The Smiths
Strangeways Here We Come

This 1987 album was the final chapter for one of the most prodigiously brilliant and era-defining bands of the 80s. It tends to steer away from the jangly guitar style that Johnny Marr was best known for, with more varied production than before. Hence, the glam stomp of I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish, the proggy jam...view item »

Joy Division
Still

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on vinyl. Still, first out in 1981, brings together Joy Division material that was unreleased at that...view item »

The Zodiac
Cosmic Sounds

Twelve pieces of Zodiac signed music remastered from the 1967 record Cosmic Sounds by The Zodiac reissued on ‘Rhino’. A complete mash of psychedelic rock and that aims to show off the music of the time with little hints of British and American culture sparkling through: notice the sitar for example. Availabl...view item »

Morrissey
Satellite Of Love

As the recent autobiography and increasingly absurd press utterances have confirmed, Morrissey is...well a bit of a tool these days. Like the song goes... ‘we hate it when our friends become utterly hateful parodies of their former selves’. The moment in his book where he confirms that all his success been solely down to himself is t...view item »

Gang of Four
Entertainment!

Entertainment was the the debut album by Leeds post-punk band Gang Of Four. It was originally released in 1979. The band incorporated elements of funk, dub and reggae into their choppy and angular punk sound. Features the tracks Damaged Goods, At Home He's A Tourist and I Found That Essence Rare....view item »

The Doors
Strange Days

During the Summer of Love, when everybody in San Francisco was wearing flowers in their hair and talking of peace, love, and brotherhood, who should headline the psychedelic ballroom scene but the Doors, singing the darkest of songs, about sex and death rather than love and peace? From the opening cut, with Morrison's voice echoing from ...view item »

Van Morrison
Astral Weeks

Astral Weeks was the second album by Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison. It was originally released in 1968. Morrison assembled a band of jazz musicians to create an album that was more expansive and meandering than his previous work. It’s highly regarded among fans and its influence has even shown on recent alb...view item »

Brian Wilson
Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology

Covering more than thirty years across nine different solo albums, Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology is a comprehensive celebration of the great man’s solo career through 18 songs over two vinyl LPs. A collection of studio and live recordings, this compilation also contains two previously unreleased tracks, one of which...view item »

Prince
4EVER

Imagine Prince, but 4ever. Unfortunately it's not possible any more because scientists failed to crack eternal life before he snuffed it, but he has achieved immortality via this big box of Prince. Inside, 4 LPs of his biggest hits can be found including rarity 'Moonbeam Levels', as well as a 12-page booklet of some previously unseen shots ...view item »

The Doors
The Singles

The Doors were a kind of gloomy '70s version of INXS with a prowling tiger of a singer and some other blokes in tow. They are currently celebrating their 50th anniversary and this set compiles all their US singles and their B sides - even the ones they ill advisedly did after the death of Jim Morrison. Your only vinyl option is ...view item »


Twin Peaks (Music from the Limited Event Series)

We don’t yet know what songs will be featured on the new series of ‘Twin Peaks’ as they will be unveiled as the series wears on. This soundtrack will showcase all of them. We know Chromatics and Angelo Badalamenti are already involved. Going to be a fascinating waiti...view item »


Twin Peaks (Limited Event Series Soundtrack)

Another Twin Peaks thing. I’m glad I’m not a Twin Peaks obsessive. Luckily Match of the Day doesn’t release a new soundtrack every week. Anyway what is this? It seems to be the soundtrack to the new series. The tracks will be revealed as the series wears on. But what is the difference between this an...view item »

New Order
Low-Life

With the release of their most successful album Power, Corruption and Lies, New Order had a tough album to follow with. Making a more depressing sound helped with the creation of this album, and in 1985, Low-Life came to reality, and assisted in the growing music scene that was almost elegant, but catchy at the same time. Low Life signalled a ne...view item »

Love
Love (Mono Version)

In 1966, a year before releasing Forever Changes, Love’s self titled album came out. Here Rhino have marked the 50th anniversary with a reissue of the mono version on vinyl. Heralded as kings of the psych-rock scene in Los Angeles and label mates with The Doors they defined the genre, and still do...view item »

The Sisters of Mercy
Some Girls Wander By Mistake

Big box set showcasing the early years of preposterous Leeds goth rockers Sisters of Mercy as their brand of dark and swirling rock got increasingly popular culminating enormous sounding rock hit 'Temple of Love'. Lots of rare and early goth fun and includes the 'Temple of Love' and 'Under the Gun' 12"s.  ...view item »

The Smiths
Rank

First: The only reason this album did not get a five-star rating, is that this is a Smiths album, and as such, must live up to some pretty high standards. Now, unfortunately, I never had a chance to catch their live acts, but I do imagine that some piece of their worth as a live band were due to Morrissey's enigmatic stage performance, which isn...view item »

The Smiths
The World Won't Listen

If you value quality of quantity then The World Won't Listen is for you (over Louder than Bombs). Aside from just a compilation of various tracks from their canon; this Smiths album is a wonderfully thought out collection of songs. It's a arrangement that flows wonderfully together, from one song to the next. For me, that's a crucial aspect of a...view item »

Tim Buckley
Goodbye and Hello

Aloof songwriter and songwriter dad Tim Buckley started his career on a self-titled record, and arguably jumped the shark with Goodbye and Hello, his sophomore. This one pushed forward the psychedelic element of his sound and took him out of the usual milquetoast early stage every folk songwriter see...view item »

Talking Heads
The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads

Talking Heads are no usual '80s band -- David Byrne, with the assistance of Brian Eno, would unleash some of the most sonically rich and diverse music ever recorded. 'The Name of this Band is Talking Heads' gives us some glimpse into the majesty of their music with very different but intensely entertaining live versions of their cherished s...view item »

Air
10,000 Hz Legend

Rhino Records are in the midst of a campaign of reissuing the discography of Air, the smooth, loungey French synth-charmers. 10,000 Hz Legend found the group stretching out their tracks into territories more experimental than their previous LP Moon Safari. Includes the robot-voice single ‘How Does It Make...view item »

New Order
Republic

Remember Republic? The New Order album with sleeve art that looks like a straight-to-video action movie languishing in a VHS bargain bin? Here it is reissued, by Rhino. The 1993 album includes the hit ‘Regret’, and was the last thing released by the band before their long hiatus. Remastered audio!...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
45:33

Who likes to exercise? Well I do so I should be interested in this piece of music that Nike commissioned James Murphy to make in 2006. I'm not sure though. The mid tempo house chords and Chic-ish melancholy might make me all slovenly on the treadmill but it's a perfect piece of post exercise comedown music. Now re-issued by Rhin...view item »

Sam & Dave
Soul Men

Long before Sam Moore hooked up with Lou Reed for an astonishing, barely believable version of 'Soul Man', he had the same hit along with a bunch of others with his friend Dave Prater. well they were friends but then they fell out but not before releasing this that has been described as "...view item »

Booker T. & The M.G.s
Green Onions

Well we all know 'Green Onions' the song. The kind of laid back groove that could only have been made by 'cats' in the 'swinging' sixties. The sort of 12 bar blues riff that will live on forever. Well who knew that there was an album attached? Here it is in all it's instrumental glory. Classic early day Stax recordings to be laid back to. ...view item »

Lupe Fiasco
Lupe Fiasco's The Cool

Really popular rap man Lupe Fiasco gets his most popular album 'The Cool' re-issued on special vinyl of clear colour. He's a master of the sort of laid back grooves and insouciant vocal styles that recall the golden days of Warren G and enjoys guest spots from Unkle, Snoop Dog...view item »

Neil Young
Official Release Series: Discs 1-4

This collection contains Neil Young's first four solo albums following the demise of Buffalo Springfield. Whilst his self titled debut is fairly average, the other three, "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere", "After The Goldrush" and "Harvest" are essential. "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" is where Neil Young hit ...view item »

The Jesus & Mary Chain
Barbed Wire Kisses (B-Sides and More)

Timely vinyl reissue of a 1988 early singles, b-sides and rarities compilation by seminal indie rock provocateurs, The Jesus and Mary Chain. Showcasing the many sides of the band with trashy pop, sultry surf, moody acoustic numbers and searing walls of noise- a great introduction to the band and a must have for devotees. ...view item »

R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged 1991

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full o...view item »

Talking Heads / Echosmith
This Must Be The Place

This is the series which pairs two artists together, performing the same song. Talking Heads were of course a legendarily jittery new wave band and here play their original from their 'Speaking in Tongues' album. I simply have no idea who Echosmith are. The record is also unique in boldly pushing the price of a ...view item »

The Monkees
Good Times! Plus!

I might be on my own here but I really enjoyed the latest the Monkees album 'Good Times'. Now for Black Friday they have released a red vinyl 10" of all the tracks that didn't make it and I have to say that the fact that they weren't included in the first place was rather unfathomable so this will be a necessary grab for all tho...view item »

Mystery Artist
Side By Side

This 7” has been released under a veil of secrecy: the two artists who share the wax are anonymous! Although, having had a listen, they do arguably bear a passing resemblance to, hmmm, the Melvins and, oooh, let’s say MC5… Side By Side is a strictly limited Record Store Day 2016 relea...view item »

Willie Nelson / Uncle Tupelo
Truck Drivin’ Man

This most unexpected but conceptually consistent 7" sees old-school country legend Willie Nelson square off against New Depression pioneers Uncle Tupelo (the band before Wilco). On both sides you'll find someone (those aforementioned folkies) performing "Truck Drivin' Man". A fine thing indeed; keep it simple....view item »

The Stooges
Funhouse

Rarely, if ever, has the spirit and sound of rock’n’roll been distilled to such perfection. Iggy, the Asheton brothers and bassist Dave Alexander present a model of semi-improvised heavy psychedelic rock here. Loose and T.V. Eye are irresistible, but things get further out when ...view item »

Ramones
Live at The Roxy - August 12, 1976

This is The Ramones at the peak of their snotty three-chord power punk in 1976, finally available on 180 gram vinyl from Rhino and sounding great, or as great as The Ramones should ever sound. Live at The Roxy - August 12, 1976 is a no-brainer for fans of the band, or those looking for an introd...view item »

The Replacements
Pleased To Meet Me

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1987’s Pleased To Meet Me is one of them.

Iron Butterfly
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Here is the major statement from Iron Butterfly, one of the original ‘on acid’ rock bands.

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued.

The Smiths
The Smiths

The Smiths must have sounded like nothing else in 1983. The band were a live tour de force but also poetic and lyrical. The Smiths was their murky debut and contains several future classics. Match the Byrds like guitar playing and a particular kind of Manchester melancholy with a vocalist who sounds like a demen...view item »

Talking Heads
Remain In light

Every so often, an album comes out that sounds like nothing else. “Remain In Light” is one such album – from a completely different planet.

MC5
Kick Out The Jams

Kick Out The Jams was MC5's first album. It was recorded live in front of a large audience in October 1968 in Detroit. Though the band claimed it was a recorded document of "the revolution" they were right, not in the meaning they intended, however. It did revolutionise American rocknroll and music forever. They manage to infuse the same kind of...view item »

Jane's Addiction
Nothing's Shocking

This vinyl LP is the band’s first studio album, released as long ago as 1988. Regarded by many as the band’s best album, this work sees LA’s rock children approach writing through spontaneity. Navarro recalls that some songs “came from Eric's bass lines, some from guitar, some came from Perry, some came from drum riffs, a...view item »

The Streets
A Grand Don't Come For Free

Upon its release 10 years ago, The Streets second album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free was instantly hailed as another masterpiece to equal his initial clarion call, Original Pirate Material.
