Neil Young

"That's not the real Neil" barked a particularly discerning Neil Young fan when I dared to suggest that 'Harvest' was my favourite album. Proper fans may prefer 'Trans' but for any newcomer to Neil Young, this is the one to start with. It's a lovely late '60's folk album with a consistent feel throughout and a sound that set the blueprint for his sporadic 'sensible' albums over the years. Just because it's popular it shouldn't be dismissed.  

Joni Mitchell

Blue by Joni Mitchell is a masterpiece. Originally released in 1971, the album was inspired by travel, it was partly written on her travels around Europe, and her ailing relationship with Graham Nash. Joni ended the relationship whilst writing the album which added a melancholic tone, making it a truly heartfelt collection of songs. An absolute must have for any collection. LP on Reprise.

Joni Mitchell
Ladies Of The Canyon

Ladies Of The Canyon was the third album by Joni Mitchell, originally released in 1970. The album is more artistically expansive than her previous albums, giving a glimpse of what she’d later become on albums such as Blue and  The Hissing Of Summer Lawns. It is notable for containing two of her most popular songs: Big Yellow Taxi and Woodstock. LP on Reprise.

Howard Shore
The Fellowship Of The Ring - The Complete Recordings

I'm sorry to say that this is my favourite movie of all time. Howard Shore's soundtrack to the first edition in the Rings trilogy captures both the overcast darkness and total tweedom of Tolkein's novels. Since director Peter Jackson loves his extended versions and drawn out releases, why not release an OST this heaving with content?

Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac

Reissue of Fleetwood Mac’s classic eponymous 1975 album, the first they released with their most iconic line-up, and which laid the foundations for their world-beating future. The album is available on CD, deluxe CD, and in a very deluxe box set featuring alternate takes, live recordings, and a surround and stereo mix.

Once More ‘Round the Sun

'Once More 'Round The Sun' is Mastodon's sixth record, produced by rock and metal professor Nick Raskulinecz, who has worked with a variety of crossover metal bands, including Deftones, as well as proggier outfits like Rush. The record continues to push a version of Mastodon into the public with clean vocals, catchy riffs and an ear for mainstream rock, though certain tracks like "High Road" retain their penchant for sludgy metal with dark tones. Brann Dailor has said what he really wanted 'Once More 'Round The Sun' to be is "huge and weird". Features contributions from the Coathangers and Scott Kelly of Neurosis. Tracks: Tread Lightly The Motherload High Road Once More 'Round the Sun Chimes at Midnight Asleep in the Deep Feast Yopur Eyes Aunt Lisa Ember City Halloween Diamond in the Witch House

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real
The Visitor

For many years now, Neil’s M.O. has been to rush into the studio and unburden himself of whatever his latest preoccupation might be. Unsurprisingly, this time it involves the current occupant of the White House. Young’s always had a habit of proclaiming his US patriotism, but here at least, the title undercuts the irony of his status as a Canuck blow-in. Judging by the preview tracks, his intent is to combat the crassness and divisiveness in American politics with rousing affirmations of positivity and defiance. The dense clutter of Already Great and the orchestral bombast of Children of Destiny don’t give much indication as to what the album as whole will be like, but it’s reasonable to expect a couple of gems in there. and that Promise of the Real will lend the songs their mixture of comparatively youthful energy and rootsy swagger.

Neil Young
A Letter Home

On 'A Letter Home', Young retreats into his folk traditions after a couple of years incorporating drone, psychedelia and noise into his records and live sets. This record was recorded at Jack White's Third Man studio, in the kind of pay-per-use recording booth you would've found way back in the day. Young stepped in and recorded these covers of folk standards, only using his guitar and the occasional piano accompaniment from White. Among the covers are Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe", Bob Dylan's "Girl from the North Country" and the good old "On the Road Again". 'A Letter Home' is interspersed with Young reading out a letter he's written to his late mother. Bless you, Neil.

Neil Young

Neil "Pono" Young goes from the plumbing extreme depths of lo-fi folk traditions with 'A Letter Home' to the sleek, obsessively well-produced and tailored 'Storytone', in which he plays with a 92-piece orchestra. Young's work in the past has always landed somewhere between sparse and raw, but this record is symphonic, putting Young's voice in a crowd of a hundred other musicians who make it sound like he's marching through the streets.
