Rhino Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

Born in the 1970s out of a Los Angeles record shop, Rhino Records initially began as a venture for reissuing tracks on compilations, issuing novelty records and providing retrospective releases for stand-up comedians. A certain Dr. Demento - a man wh...read more »

Ramones
Road To Ruin

Originally released in 1978, Road To Ruin was the fourth album by legendary New York punks The Ramones. It includes the classic I Wanna Be Sedated along with their version of the much covered ‘60s Jack Nitzsche / Sonny Bono-penned song Needles and Pins. It also saw Marky Ramone replace Tommy Ramone behind the drum kit. 

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.  

Kate Bush
Hounds Of Love

Hounds Of Love is one of those LPs that you can end up skipping over because you feel like you already know it too well. In particular ‘Running Up That Hill’, ‘Cloudbusting’ and the title track are all old friends at this point. But here’s the thing - as frequently as you might hear its famous singles (or their famous covers), as often as it might crop up in retrospective lists and talking heads documentaries, Kate Bush's fifth studio album will never get old. It's just too good.

Joy Division
Closer (40th Anniversary Edition)

A 40th anniversary re-issue for Closer, the second and final studio album from Joy Division. Released two months after lead singer Ian Curtis took his own life, the record, along with its predecessor Unknown Pleasures and the group’s clutch of singles, had an inestimable impact on the evolution of indie and alternative rock. This re-mastered version comes on ‘crystal clear’ vinyl.

The Smiths
The World Won't Listen

The World Won't Listen was a collection of singles and B sides from legendary Manchester band the Smiths. It's main selling point was the inclusion of aborted single You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby and initially the album served a similar purpose to the earlier Hatful of Hollow. Confusingly though, Rough Trade subsequently issued Louder Than Bombs - an American compilation which did almost the exact same thing rendering one (or the other) compilations semi redundant save for a few different mixes.

LCD Soundsystem
This Is Happening

Here we have ‘This Is Happening’, the last LCD Soundsystem album that wasn’t actually the last LCD Soundsystem album. Whether you feel duped by the band's reunion is now a moot point. Anyway back in 2010 James Murphy bestowed upon us an album that took his über-aware dance-punk schtick to new heights. You know how it is - Talking Heads, ‘Dance Yrself Clean’, Madison Square Garden. The whole nine yards.

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 time, including live recordings.

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 sophisticated production.

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.

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 Steve Mackay’s sax appears on the title track. After that, there’s nowhere to go but the insane chaotic blow-out of L.A. Blues. Unimpeachable!

The Smiths
Louder Than Bombs

Louder Than Bombs was the American counterpart to The World Won't Listen compilation in that it compiled all the Smiths non album tracks that hadn't been available on single or album in the US. Therefore it is a treasure trove of the lesser known part of their back catalogue with well known hits interspersed with rarely heard B sides. Brilliant throughout despite the singer's subsequent attempts at ruining everything.

Joni Mitchell
Court and Spark

Originally released in 1974, Court and Spark by Joni Mitchell showed the singer/songwriter expanding her artistic palette yet again with jazz influences finding their way into her already augmented folk sound. It features a whole bunch of guest performers including Crosby & NAsh, Jose Feliciano and Cheech & Chong. Contains the tracks Help Me and Free Man In Paris. LP on Reprise.

Kate Bush
Aerial

In 2005, Kate Bush returned to recorded music for the first time in 12 years, with the beautiful Aerial. This is her only double album, featuring the two sides A Sea of Honey and A Sky of Honey, which is notably one long single suite about a summer’s day. Aerial has been remastered, and is now available to you on CD and vinyl again!

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 was the person who started wearing safety pins on his clothes, but simply to hold them together, rather than as a fashion statement. Their debut album from 1977, Marquee Moon, is absolutely essential.

The Streets
Everything Is Borrowed

Everything Is Borrowed was the Streets fourth album and saw a return to form for the band after The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living which was the first the Streets album to get a mixed reception on release. Instead Everything Is Borrowed concentrated on positive vibes and feel good anthems reflected in the fact that a lot of its tracks have been played on their 2018 and 2019 greatest hits tours.

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. 

Van Morrison
Moondance

It seems strange now to think that, when it first came out, Van Morrison’s 1968 LP Astral Weeks was a commercial failure. Licking his wounds, Van Morrison retreated to upstate New York (it’s always upstate New York, isn’t it) and wrote Moondance. The 1970 album would turn out to be his breakthrough, selling bucketloads and charming critics. And, of course, paving the way for all those sleeper sales of Astral Weeks. Now Moondance is reissued on wax by Rhino.

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. Witness the hit singles 'Today' and 'Talk Talk'.

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 songs such as "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "William, It Was Really Nothing", "Girl Afraid" and "How Soon Is Now? Utterly, utterly essential. 

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 singular identity. We All Stand and Leave Me Alone still have the guitar-driven angst of old, but the Blue Monday variation 5 8 6 and Ecstasy were ground-breaking forays into a Hi-NRG-influenced sequencer-driven style, enhanced by the unmistakable lead basslines of Peter Hook. Also Barney got over his reticence and became a proper lead singer. Housed in a high-concept, die-cut Peter Saville sleeve, it’s still an utter joy today. 

The B-52's
Cosmic Thing

Cosmic Thing is the fifth album by Athens, Georgia new wave/pop band The B-52’s. It was originally released in 1989. It was the band’s first album without guitarist Ricky Wilson, who sadly died shortly after the previous album was finished. This is the album that catapulted The B-52’s into the major leagues, with its massive hits such as Love Shack and Roam.

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.

The Futureheads
The Futureheads

Skittering Sunderland four piece the Futureheads have had something of an Indian summer this year with their comeback album Powers so what better time to revisit their self-titled debut. It blasted through fifteen tracks of agit-pop and post-punk and was notable for a high octane version of Kate Bush's Hounds of Love which reached a heady number eight in the hit parade. Rhino have now re-pressed the album onto lush double wax.

Television
Adventure

You might think that Television only made one album such is the lordation given to 'Marquee Moon'. This is their second album which, its safe to say, didn't do quite as well at the time both critically and commercially. It has a softer more layered sound which has more of a 60's West Coast vibe and could easily be seen to influence the nascent REM. Verlaine's voice is still as wiry and ragged but this sweeter side of Television should not be overlooked.  Long awaited vinyl re-issue on Rhino.

Daft Punk
Alive 1997

Live album from the kings of contemporary electronica Daft Punk recorded in Birmingham’s Que Club way back in 1997 when they had just released their debut album. The roar of the crowd as they drop funky melodies and awesome beats gives this album a real exciting ambience. A must have for fans of the duo. On vinyl.

New Order
Low-Life

Low-Life was the moment New Order truly crossed over from post-punkers with the DNA of their previous incarnation Joy Division still in their bones to the innovative dance-rockers they later became. It was notable for three excellent examples of their new form with tracks like Sub Culture, The Perfect Kiss and Love Vigilantes but tracks like Elegia show that they'd lost none of their skill for transcendental atmospherics.

Blur
Parklife

'Parklife’ is, of course, the monstrously successful Blur album from the heady days of 1994. Along with those first two Oasis LPs and Pulp's ‘Different Class’ it is generally vaunted as one of Britpop’s definitive albums, and heard today it certainly acts like a capsule from a different era, one where doing a passable Cockney accent was a passport to a whole career. Seriously though, 'Parklife' actually is good - songs like ‘To The End’ and ‘End Of A Century’ show off genuine songwriting chops, and who could resist shaking leg ‘Girls And Boys’ when it comes on at the indie disco? You love a bit of it.

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.  

Ramones
Leave Home

The first four Ramones albums are essential as far as any punk fan is concerned. 'Leave Home' is their second album and it saw the New York leather jacket sporting legends double tracking their sound for a more polished sound than their iconic debut. The rapid-fire rhythms, short pace and catchy bubblegum melodies are still more than apparent, as are the hits. You'll find 'Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment', 'Pinhead', 'Swallow My Pride', 'Commando' and 'California Sun' on this record which spits in the face of any idea of a sophomore slump. "One two three four!"

LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver

Some say James Murphy gave up comedy when he turned down a chance to be a scriptwriter on Seinfeld...but then he formed LCD Soundsystem. Boom and indeed boom. Sound of Silver was the second time he merged bits of the Fall, Suicide, Talking Heads and other bits of music he's heard into sleek dance rock. Less of a novelty perhaps than their debut it turned LCD Soundsystem into a danceable juggernaut getting critical acclaim everywhere including being named as the second best album of the year by Pitchfork.   

The Human League
Octopus

Octopus was the 7th album by Sheffield synth-pop pioneers Human League. It was originally released in 1995. It is the first album by the band as the trio of Phil Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley.  Here we have a 25th anniversary reissue available on LP or 2CD, the latter format includes a bunch of bonus tracks.

Sepultura
Beneath The Remains (Expanded Edition)

'Beneath The Remains' is considered as the greatest album from the influential Brazilian metal group. One of the first heavy metal exports from the South American country, Sepultura featured the brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, who are still making boundary-pushing music today and supporting loads of up and coming new talents. One of the heaviest albums at the time of 1989, the group took influence from the death metal genre to shape this thrash-terpiece.

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 title track and there's half a great album already. They simply redefined what pop could and should be.

Matrix Revolutions (Music From The Motion Picture)

As with the other Matrix films, Matrix Revolutions was scored by American composer Don Davis. Three of the tracks feature collaborations with London-based electronica band Juno Reactor. It also features the song In Your Head by German three-piece Pale 3. This double vinyl reissue might just keep you going while you wait for the fourth Matrix installment due in 2021.

Various
The Matrix Reloaded: The Album

The Matrix Reloaded: The Album blends segments of the films score along with songs used in the film. It features acts such as Rage Against The Machine, Marilyn Manson, Deftones, Rob Zombie, P.O.D., Linkin Park, Fluke, Oakenfold and Dave Matthews Band and score composer Don Davis. It’s a triple LP too!

Love
Four Sail

Four Sail was the fourth album by Love. It was originally released in 1969. Arthur Lee was the only original member to play on the album. Whilst it might not be as well known as their enduring classic, Forever Changes, it’s certainly an album worthy of high praise. It contains the song, Always See Your Face, which, in more recent years, has been used on a number of film soundtracks including Ladybird and High Fidelity.

The Doors
The Soft Parade (50th Anniversary Edition)

The Soft Parade was the Doors fourth album originally released in 1969. As was typical of the times, the band were pressurised into coming up with new material after gruelling tours and so the album was a difficult one. It had lavish arrangements which alienated some of their early fanbase and it lacked the raw intensity of earlier work. Still, its standing has grown over the years and 50 years later it comes in an new edition remastered by original engineer Bruce Botnik. 

New Order
Everything's Gone Green

One of them there old New Order EPs gets a reissue. 1981’s Everything’s Gone Green is one of the most important early works in the band’s discography. The last thing they did with famed producer Martin Hannett at the controls, this trio of tunes are synthetic post-punk par excellence. Now they’re getting remastered and reissued.

Kate Bush
50 Words for Snow

50 Words for Snow is the tenth album for Kate Bush, coming five years after her last studio album, Aerial. The title comes from the belief that Eskimos have 50 words for snow. The album features a number of guest artists including Andy Fairweather-Low, Danny Thompson, Elton John and Stephen Fry, who recites 50 words for snow on the title track.

Miles Davis
Rubberband

Rubberband was supposed to be the first album Miles Davis recorded for new label, Warner Bros in 1985 following his departure from Columbia. The tapes were left to gather dust and Tutu was released. Following completion work in 2017 and an EP taster version released for record store day, the full album is now being released. It features vocals from 12-time Grammy nominee Lidisi and Donnie Hatahway’s daughter, Lalah and drums by legendary percussionist, Steve Reid.

Various
Factory Communications 1978-92

The compilation Factory Communications 1978-92 finally makes its way onto wax a full decade after the CD release. This bumper set needs little introduction - Factory Records, Tony Wilson, arguably the UK’s most important post-punk label, blah blah blah. All the big hitters are included here (yer Joy Divisions, yer Happy Mondays, yer New Orders) as well as some more obtuse Factory acts. This wide spread makes for a good blend of anthems and rarities - for every ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ there’s something like John Dowie’s ‘It’s Hard To Be An Egg’.

The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll.

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 themes including feminism, religion and relationships.

New Order
Ceremony (Version 2)

'Ceremony' was the first song New Order recorded following the tragic demise of Joy Division. Strangely, they recorded and released it twice. The original featured just the surviving Joy Division members, whilst the second recording was made with new member Gillian Gilbert. This is the re-recording. B side 'In A Lonely Place' was also slightly remixed for this 12" which was originally released in 1981.  

Black Sabbath
The Ultimate Collection

A heavy compilation for one of the heaviest bands: 4 full LPs worth of classic Black Sabbath material, spanning all the hits and some of the deeper cuts too. The packaging folds out into a crucifix shape, lovingly decorated by vintage 70’s snaps of our heroes. Compiled from the Andy Pearce re-mastered Black Sabbath albums.

It's probably about time we celebrated properly the very early clankings of New Order. The metamorphosis from Joy Division was a difficult one for the group but this fascinating era contains some of their most powerful and overlooked music. Now you can get a box set containing the original album plus a CD full of rarities, demos and rehearsal takes, a DVD of of-the-era performances and a 48 page hardback book.   

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 ‘Bastards Of The Young’ and “Left Of The Dial’. Vinyl reissue.

The Monkees
Head

Head was an experimental freaky trip of a film released in late 1968. It starred The Monkees, who also recorded the soundtrack, and was directed by Bob Rafelson. It was written by Raffelson along with Jack Nicholson and featured cameo appearances from Frank Zappa and Terri Garr. The soundtrack, features such songs as Porpoise Song and Circle Sky.

Joni Mitchell
The Hissing Of Summer Lawns

Mitchell’s seventh album got some sniffy reviews back in 1975, but is now recognised as a subtle and complex jazz-inflected masterpiece.The title track is as smooth and groovy as peak Steely Dan, while Crosby, Stills and Nash guest on the buoyant In France They Kiss On Main Street. However the biggest surprise is The Jungle Line, a viciously funny indictment of the art world set to a distorted loop of Burundi drumming and Moog synth that feels a decade ahead of its time. If you associate Mitchell with hippy festivals and large hireable vehicles, this will be a real eye- and ear-opener.

New Order
Ceremony (Version 1)

This was the record that could have perhaps been the next Joy Division single. ceremony was originally recorded in March 1981 by the surviving Joy Division members with guitarist Bernard Sumner taking over on vocal duties from the late Ian Curtis. The track was eventually re-recorded with the new line up featuring Gillian Gilbert but this is the original and most Joy Division sounding version. 

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!

New Order
Temptation

There have been other songs called 'Temptation' but the New Order one is surely the best. Released as a standalone single in 1982 it was the first music the band produced themselves. On this re-issue we get the full 12" version along with the full version of B side 'Hurt'. Both track have been remastered and 'Temptation' still sounds as thrilling and visceral as it did in 1982.    

Hawkwind
Space Ritual

The crowning achievement for space rockers Hawkwind, Space Ritual captures a blistering live show from 1972. Rhino bring this monstrous double LP back to vinyl again. These extended freak-out jams, complete with spoken word sections, screeching riffs and berserk electronic breakdowns are how Hawkwind are meant to be experienced.

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 Kitchen, the LP finishes with eleven brooding minutes of bubbling insanity, and surely the band’s most recognisable track - The End.

The Streets
The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living

This was the third the Streets album and the first to openly discuss the 'pressures' of fame. It was later described by Mike Skinner as a "guilt ridden indulgence" but is an interesting document of an artist trying to hold it together whilst slowly losing their mind. First re-pressing since the giddy year of 2006 and now comes on not one but two heavyweight discs.

Joy Division & New Order
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

It’s never before been possible to study the trajectory of post-punk pioneers Joy Division and synth-rock sequel New Order in one sitting. The technology simply hasn’t been there.

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 masters, decently priced too.

Talking Heads
More Songs About Buildings And Food

More Songs About Buildings And Food was the second Talking Heads album, originally released in 1978 and the first to feature Brian Eno in the production chair. Eno was a perfect fit for Talking Heads, teasing out of them a more dance and funk inspired sound with the rhythm section of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth taking a keener role behind David Byrne's trademark yelp. 

The Doors
Waiting For The Sun

Waiting For The Sun is album numero three from classic waistoid crew The Doors, now seeing reissue after it originally hit the shelves many moons ago, way back in 1968 when we weren't even sex cells in our mummy's and daddies psychedelic paisley underpants. Morrison and the gang get their groove on, with such favourites as ‘Hello, I Love You’ and Vietnam war track ‘The Unknown Soldier’.

The Monkees
Greatest Hits

Were The Monkees cool? The 60s pop four-piece were assembled by TV producers to sing the songs of Boyce and Hart among others, but they had a certain charm. They definitely got a bit cooler when Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork started writing songs and Davy Jones could claim to be the world’s greatest tambourine player. This Greatest Hits LP was originally released in 1976 and includes Last Train To Clarksville, Listen To The Band, (I’m Not Your Stepping Stone), Daydream Believer and Pleasant Valley Sunday. Orange coloured vinyl LP on Rhino.

Kate Bush
Lionheart

Lionheart was the second album by Kate Bush and was originally released in 1978 - the same year of her debut, The Kick Inside. The album was commercially successful but failed to impress the critics much. Now we have it remastered on CD and LP so we can listen with new ears. Contains the hit single 'Wow'.

Kate Bush
Director's Cut

This is where, instead of recording a new album, Kate went back to tracks recorded for her albums 'The Sensual World' and 'The Red Shoes' and reworked them using bits and pieces of the original recordings and new additions. The result is, as always, fascinating particularly the lead track 'Deeper Understanding' which just showcases how far ahead of the curve Kate has always been. 

Kate Bush
Remastered Part I

Volume one of the Kate Bush Remastered CD box-set series features the first seven Kate Bush albums, from 1978’s The Kick Inside to 1993’s The Red Shoes, a time period that includes the super-classic Hounds of Love. Seven albums-worth of vintage Kate Bush material then, perfectly remastered. Box-set on Parlophone.

Kate Bush
Remastered in Vinyl I

Volume one of the Kate Bush Remastered in Vinyl box-set series features those ground-breaking and still jaw-dropping first four albums, from 1978’s The Kick Inside to 1982’s The Dreaming. This vintage Kate Bush material has been buffed and polished through remastering, for the highest possible quality. On Parlophone.

Love
Revisited

Love Revisited was a rather odd compilation of tracks from the first four Love albums. The Elektra years if you will. I guess it was originally intended as a starter point for those who hadn't already hooked on to the bands exquisite form of folk rock but given the success of Forever Changes it's rather odd to see only three tracks taken from the now legendary album. Still, it's a good place to start and if you don't trust that they did anything else as good as Forever Changes then this is proof to the contrary.

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 Death of a Disco Dancer, and the extended-intro, string-laden Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me. Morrissey was melodically impressive as well as genuinely witty and capable of human empathy in these good old days, and I Won’t Share You ends the album and the band’s career with a sad and touching sentiment. Rourke and Joyce rarely get the plaudits they deserve, but as ever The Smiths sound like a proper four-piece. May they never ruin their legacy by reforming, and we can remember and still enjoy them like this.

The Sisters of Mercy
Greatest Hits Volume One: A Slight Case of Overbombing

Greatest Hits Volume One: A Slight Case Of Overbombing is a compilation of Sisters Of Mercy’s classic material that has now reached classic status in its own right, having been released in 1993. Naturally all the best of the Sisters is represented here, in a fantastic tracklisting that has been unavailable on vinyl for years. 2LP reissue from Rhino.

MC5
Total Assault

Get ready for a Total Assault! Available as a triple LP box set for the first time -- on red, white and blue vinyl -- are the band MC5's first three studio albums.  Their incendiary debut 'Kick Out The Jams' is presented on red vinyl; 'Back In The USA' is coloured white and 'High Time' on blue vinyl. The sleeves are faithful recreations of the original releases and are housed in a heavyweight protective slipcase with new artwork and previously unavailable photography by Raeanne Rubenstein. Plus, a new essay by Jaan Uhelszki. On Rhino.

Batman Forever (Music From The Motion Picture)

90’s compilation of the soundtrack to the 90’s Batman film Batman Forever, featuring 90’s music. In fact more than half of this tracklist didn’t actually appear in the film, but it's a pretty strong selection so who’s complaining? Features cuts from PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, U2 and The Flaming Lips. Reissue from the Rhino label.

Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

This record was made for playin’ and thanks to this reissue, playin’s’ just what it’ll do - anew. Indeed, Nancy Sinatra’s classic tune is here among Abigail Mead’s (that is, Stanley Kubrick’s daughter Vivian Kubrick’s) sparse and intense original compositions. Her pieces accompany all-too-well the film’s vigorous bootcamp, desolate war ruins and poor ol’ Private Pyle’s descent into madness.

Led Zeppelin
The Song Remains The Same

The Song Remains The Same. So does the album, try as Led Zeppelin might to tell you otherwise. You can’t change history, of course, but you can keep repackaging it and bulking it out with filler. These expensive-ass editions come with all sorts of extra material - booklets, replica artwork, fancy packaging. The vinyl versions run to four LPs, and one of those sides is given over to a near-30-minute version of ‘Dazed And Confused’. Every day we stray further from God.

Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984

Punk is a loose term for what we have here. While Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984 contains several of the scene’s defining anthems - ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’, ‘Blank Generation’ and suchlike - there is as much ‘post-’ and ‘proto-’ as there is ‘punk’ on display. Entries from The Gun Club, Joy Division, Patti Smith, Television and more give Rhino’s twenty-three-track compilation a pleasing sense of variety. The quality of the content is, of course, beyond dispute.

Richard Hell & The Voidoids
Blank Generation

Give ‘em Hell, Richard! Like it’s spiritual ancestor The Velvet Underground’s The Velvet Underground & Nico, Blank Generation is one of those LPs whose influence in the world of popular culture cannot be overstated. Along with backing group The Voidoids, the former Television man laid down a marker for all other punk bands when he dropped his Blank Generation in 1977. Without this you’d have had no Sex Pistols and no Clash. Hell & The Voidoid's debut is reissued by Rhino.

The Jesus & Mary Chain
21 Singles

Career spanning compilation from the legendary Scottish band. This was originally released in 2002 which means we can pretend that last album didn't happen. All the classics are here and some in different versions from the album counterparts. We can also remember fondly the time they told us 'I Hate Rock 'n' Roll' only to change their minds pretty quickly and proclaim 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll'.  

Sepultura
Arise (Expanded Edition)

Brazilian metal band Sepultura originally released their fourth album, Arise, in 1991. It had the sound of a band really getting it together and was the album that multiplied their fan base. This expanded edition features the original album, gloriously remastered, with 28 previously unreleased tracks on the CD version. The Double LP version will have fewer additional tracks. On Rhino.

The Sisters of Mercy
First and Last and Always

The Sisters of Mercy were phenomenally (some might say unfathomably) popular in the mid '80s due to their goth rock moves and use of copious amounts of hairspray. First Last and Always was their debut album from 1984 and was the first album to feature guitarist Wayne Hussey (Dead or Alive). A couple of singles brushed the top 40 but mainstream success wouldn't happen until 1987's Floodland.  

Tom Waits
Bastards

In 2006 the living legend that is Tom Waits released a 56 song triple album named Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards, featuring all manner of new and rare materials. Now, for the first time, the three albums are being released as separate units! Bastards is the most experimental of the three sets, with Waits weaving plenty of strange stories in his inimitable style. CD and double vinyl reissues from Anti.

Tyler Bates
Watchmen (Original Motion Picture Score)

The score for the late-2000s box office smash Watchmen gets a vinyl release via Rhino. It came from the workhouse of Guardians Of The Galaxy/John Wick/Deadpool II composer and Marilyn Manson guitarist Tyler Bates, and it’s a nice piece of post-Matrix franchise blockbuster noir. There’s also a light Oldboy flavour to some of the instrumentals. Doesn’t include the My Chemical Romance tie-in tune, which is either a blessing or a curse depending on which angle you're looking at it from.

Talking Heads
The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads

Named after David Byrne's regular announcement to the crowd at early Talking Heads shows, The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads is a double live album originally released in 1982 which features live recordings of the original quartet from 1977 and 1979 and on the second disc recordings from 1980 and 1981 which see the band expand to a ten piece. Two different sides of what was a thrilling live band.
