The Human League
Reproduction

Album the first from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Released in 1979, it wasn’t (initially) a hit, but it does present the fully-formed sound of the band who would soon dominate the charts and play a part in defining the sound of the 80’s. LP reissue on Universal, complete with the original, bizarrely disturbing sleeve art.

D'Angelo
Brown Sugar

Brown Sugar is the debut album by R&B singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist D’Angelo. It was originally released in 1995 and was critically warmly received and commercially successful being certified platinum in the USA. D’Angelo went on a self-imposed hiatus after this, waiting five years before releasing his masterpiece, Voodoo.

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The last album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before. Absolutely essential.

Massive Attack
Protection

Protection was the second album by Bristol’s trip-hop overlords Massive Attack. The album was released in 1994. Vocalist Shara Nelson was replaced by Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn. Tricky also made his last appearance with the the group going on to make his Maxinquaye album. It features the single Karmacoma.

Beastie Boys
Licensed To Ill

Album the first from Brooklyn’s finest, the legendary Beastie Boys. Licensed To Ill has crucial classics like ‘Fight For Your Right’ and ‘No Sleep Till Brooklyn’, plus the iconic airplane cover art. Basically, this is a crucial cornerstone in hip-hop history, and you can now buy it on vinyl again: happy days eh?

Nirvana
In Utero

Nirvana’s In Utero, the album that famously followed Nevermind with a more caustic, cutting sound. Pretty emotionally and sonically heavy, particularly for a record that reached number one in the US. Includes "Heart-Shaped Box", "Rape Me", and the title track, which is essentially designed to be poppy enough to entice listeners into the abrasive depths of the record. Reissued on vinyl by Back To Black.

The La's
The La's

Oh those poor the La's. Just imagine the internet meltdown if they ever decided to release another note of music. As it is we have to make do with their debut and only album being re-issued over and over and over again. It is of course a brilliant record despite what Lee Mavers thinks and here it is once again on 180g vinyl with download code.

Sonic Youth
Goo

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1990’s Goo was considered to be their most accessible album to date: it does after all contain the popular tunes ‘Dirty Boots’ and ‘Kool Thing’, virtually pop hits for Sonic Youth. LP reissue on Universal / Back To Black, with a variation on that great Topshop T-shirt design as sleeve art!

Iggy Pop
Lust For Life

Iggy’s second solo album came hot on the heels of the similarly Bowie-produced, but stylistically very different The Idiot (both 1977). With the Sales brothers on bass and drums and Carlos Alomar and Ricky Gardiner on guitars, this is much more of a rock album, but one that doesn’t at all resemble the Stooges. The title track and The Passenger are now almost omnipresent, but the record is full of delights - sleazy (Sixteen), daft (Success), or somewhere between comical and emotionally devastating (Turn Blue).

Eels
Beautiful Freak

Very prolific and very sad, Mark "E" Everett has released literally tonnes of records at this point, but it all began with 'Beautiful Freak', a record that predated his infatuation with indie pop, twee theatrics and maudlin slowcore; this record has shades of grunge, trip-hop and alt rock, featuring the classic single "Novocaine For the Soul", as well as "Susan's House", which samples a Gladys Knight song and turns it into a spoken word nightmare. His creepiest, hardest to listen to and ultimately best record, Eels would never capture this disgusting sort of magic again.

Portishead
Third

Portishead have kept a low profile in the nine years since Third was released. Will they ever release another album? If not, the savage trip-hop trailblazers certainly ended with something special. Reinterpreting all sorts from krautrock to folk song, the album’s menacing unease still haunts today. No wonder an entire town was named after them!

Dusty Springfield
Dusty In Memphis

A few years ago (I say ‘a few’ I probably mean 20) I read an opinion, I think in the NME, that the 10-second intro to Son Of A Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield is the greatest 10 seconds of music ever recorded. It’s hard to argue with as it is very good indeed. Dusty Springfield released Dusty In Memphis in 1969 and utilised the talents of the city’s finest session musicians. It was produced by Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd and is thought of as her best work, and is arguably one of the best albums of all time.

The Rolling Stones
Beggars Banquet

Beggars Banquet by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1968 and was the first in a run of four brilliant albums: Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street followed. Beggars Banquet was the last to feature Brian Jones, but due to increasing drug use didn’t play on the whole album. Contains the classics Sympathy For The Devil and Street Fighting Man.

At the time (1976) his most wide-reaching and ambitious set, SITKOL includes Sir Duke, I Wish, Pastime Paradise, Isn’t She Lovely… A true milestone in music from a titan of Psychedelic Soul. Reissued and repackaged by Universal as a 2LP + 7” single set.

D'Angelo
Voodoo

Voodoo by D’Angelo is regarded by many as the first great album of the new millennium. It was released shortly after 1999 had rolled into 2000. It features a crack-team of R&B musicians who were able to look into each others eyes as they played live. Voodoo is inspired equally by his children, his childhood home in Virginia and ground-breaking black musicians such as Sly Stone, George Clinton, Jimi Hendrix and Al Green.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark

A good time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: the group’s forty year anniversary is being celebrated with a series of reissues of their early albums. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1980, sporting that sharp Peter Saville sleeve artwork, and it’s early synth-pop sounds positively prophetic right now.
  • Vinyl LP (5705080)

Amy Winehouse
Back To Black (Half-Speed Master)

Half-speed mastering is an incredibly clever and powerful tool in improving sound quality and clarity. When the record is cut everything is done at half the speed enabling the machine to cut at what will be perceived as much higher and lower frequencies when played at full speed. Therefore Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black is more clear and deeper than ever before.

Hole
Live Through This

Second album by Hole, first released in 1994 during a busy time in Courtney Love’s life. The grunge hardcore thrashings of their debut were still present, but coated with a poppier sheen and with clearer, catchier song constructions. Live Through This is possibly Hole’s finest record, and it is receiving a vinyl reissue courtesy of Universal.

Eels

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Daisies Of The Galaxy, the third of the band’s records, is filled with high-quality leftfield indie-pop, including semi-hit single ‘Mr E’s Beautiful Blues’.

Originally released in 1996, Illadelph Halflife was the third studio album from one of the definers of the hip hop genre The Roots. After 19 albums and countless co-productions with everyone from Erykah Badu to Elvis Costello it’s a great treat to head back to the jazzy sampling roots of The Roots.

BBC Live Sessions includes some early-period treats, including a Jools Holland performance that kind of began Tunstall’s rise to fame. Vinyl with download.

No Protection

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Architecture & Morality

Good time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: to celebrate forty years on from the group’s activities, some nice reissues have been put together. Architecture & Morality, from 1981, is one of their very greatest releases, making a huge impact on British synth-pop. Also, a great album from fans of the mellotron.

Abba
Happy New Year

We're now selling Abba records. I'm constantly told to lighten up and just enjoy these pop masters for what they are but it's just not clicking with me. Anyway here are the sound trackers to a thousand weddings with their 'Happy New Year' song which you'll be pleased to hear will be released each year on different coloured vinyl until the end of time itself. This year it's white vinyl. Collect the set (if you live long enough).

Sonic Youth
Washing Machine

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1995’s Washing Machine contains examples of the band in weirded 60’s girl-group mode (‘Little Trouble Girl’), as well as ‘The Diamond Sea’, the only 20+ minute, whole-side noise jams ever to make it to a ‘proper’ Sonic Youth studio album. Double LP reissue.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Organisation

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark celebrate their forty year anniversary with some reissues of their earliest material. Organisation is their second album, released in 1980, and it mixes their love for Kraftwerk (obliquely referenced in the album title) and Joy Division for some splendid moody grandeur. Reissue from Universal.

R.E.M.
Dead Letter Office

R.E.M. in the early days were a great B sides band. They always ensured that each single came with a gaggle of excellent additional tracks. Dead Letter Office does the decent thing and round these up on one collection. From the sublime (their take on Pylon's 'Crazy') to ridiculous (laugh-a-long versions of Aerosmith's 'Toys in the Attic' and Roger Miller's 'King Of The Road' - it's all here.

Life’s Rich Pageant was the band’s fourth album, first released in 1986, when Stipe and co. were still young, hungry and indie. Includes their cover of The Clique’s song ‘Superman’.

NYC Ghosts & Flowers

Reissue of Sonic Youth’s 2000 album NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Scene leaders of no wave and noise rock in NY since beginning in 1981, they had all of their equipment nicked whilst on tour in 1999 so were forced to write without their usual modified guitars and effects. The results are quite profound from what you would usually expect from them.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Dazzle Ships

It's a great time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: forty years on from the group’s formation, four of their classic albums are getting reissues. 1983’s Dazzle Ships is a particular winner, as it veered dramatically away from chart-popping synth-pop and into some real tasty experimental territory: musique concrete and shortwave radio samples and the like. Unpopular at the time, but recognised as an underrated gem since then.

Now can I get an Encore, do you want more? Well, fans of The Specials have actually been left wanting more for a damn long time now. The seminal two-tone group’s first album in many years drops as the band celebrate four decades since the release of their masterwork debut LP. These ten tunes prove that the band have still got plenty left in the tank. We’re cooking raw with the Coventry boys.

Scott Walker
Scott 4

From way back in 1969, Scott 4 is a classic of intense and majestic songcraft; the first set of entirely Walker penned songs combining sophisticated, easy-listening pop with lyrical complexity touching on the darkest of subject matter. Seen as a something of a commercial flop at the time of its release compared to his four previous albums, Scott Walker connoiseurs now consider this to be amongst his best work.

The Housemartins
London 0 Hull 4

London 0 Hull 4 was the debut album by The Housemartins. It was originally released in 1986 and was where it all began for vocalist Paul Heaton and bass player Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim. Their mix of jangly guitar pop and thoughtful ballads saw singles such as Flag Day, Sheep and Think For A Minute flirt with the top 40 and Happy Hour reach a dizzying no.3. But that was back when people cared about the charts I guess. 180g vinyl reissue on Universal.

The Housemartins
The People Who Grinned Themselves To Death

It's quite silly to forget about the Housemartins when we recall great '80s indie bands. They were enormously popular at the time outselling all the people who have ended up more lauded. They were kind of like an 80s indie the Monkees. Catchy songs, fun personas but as with everything Paul Heaton has been involved in there were serious messages behind all the seemingly lighter than air pop fun. This is their second and final album from 1987.

Songs From Coco

This one is nothing to do with Supergrass’s Britpop blunderbuss I Should Coco. In fact the title of Songs From Coco is to be interpreted literally, containing as it does music from Pixar’s latest animated smash Coco. Given that the film is based around the Mexican Day Of The Dead festival and that there are a host of Grammy- and Oscar-winning/nominated artists involved here, it’ll come as no surprise when we tell you that this LP blends light Latin flavours with classic Disney schmaltz.

Miaow

Once Hull's second biggest employer, the Beautiful South were an incredibly successful collective and the second band to emerge from the brain of Paul Heaton after his earlier the Housemartins. Miaow was their fourth album and contained the usual pop froth with hidden dark and provocative lyrics. So provocative in fact that singer Briana Corrigan left before the album was recorded over lyrical disagreements.

Portishead

Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures.

Tunes like ‘No Omega’ sees Rakim spitting some of his savviest bars over beats that encompass both the grittiness of the Bomb Squad and A Tribe Called Quest's sharp jazz-hop.

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal.

CD, 2LP and 3CD box editions available.

Stereophonics
Word Gets Around

Welsh band Stereophonics were one of the most successful acts to survive Britpop. Word Gets Around was their debut album and was originally released in 1997. It had a steady growth in popularity before tracks like Traffic and Local Boy In The Photograph really caught the imagination of the general public. Now you can get a copy on vinyl, if you so wish.

Decade In The Sun - Best Of Stereophonics

Yup Stereophonics actually have a re-issue of their 'best of' out. In another blow for our credibility we have it in stock. Features all your sandpaper-voiced favourites including 'Have a Nice Day', 'Maybe Tomorrow' and the other one. In its own way this is as anti music as John Zorn.

Liz Phair
Liz Phair

Liz Phair’s fourth album was the one she decided would be eponymous. Unlike her previous three ‘90s classics, Exile In Guyville, Whip-Smart and Whitechocolatespaceegg it was released in 2003 so never got a vinyl release at the time. Universal have put that right with a spiffy 2LP 180g vinyl version.

Nirvana
Nirvana

‘Nirvana’ was released following the settlement of a long standing legal dispute between Courtney Love and remaining Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, centered around the release format of the song ‘You Know You’re Right’ which was recorded at the band's last session in 1994.

Lorde
Melodrama

Melodrama by Lorde is the follow-up to the incredibly successful Pure Herione. Her debut was a suprisingly assured effort given that she was only 16. Now at the ripe old age of 20, Melodrama comes with a weight of expectation, but nothing that the girl, who was once described by David Bowie as being the future of music, can’t handle. Limited, deluxe edition translucent royal blue vinyl LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with six inserts and lyric booklet or 140g black vinyl LP in single sleeve with insert on Universal.

Beck
Mutations

Mutations is one of five album titles by Beck to being with the letter M. With Mutations, the follow up to the classic Odelay, Beck threw another curve ball to his fans, recording album of what could be described as cosmic folk rock. He even showed the influence Brazilian pop music has had on him with the track Tropicalia.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
Absolutely Free

One of composer-rocker Frank Zappa's most beloved records, Absolutely Free turns fifty years old this year. You can't tell but I typed that sentence out with horror on my face, such was my shock. A blueprint of the gleefully lamentable and satirical psychedelia that marked this period of Zappa and the Mothers, this reissue comes with lotsa extras to poke several sticks at.

Brian Eno

New and unreleased works from the dome headed genius behind such albums as Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto'. This is a collection of original recordings from 1986 to date of music recorded for use in installations. Various versions available including super 6CD box set that you will only be able to afford if you are Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Frank Zappa
Sheik Yerbouti

Reissues afoot of two Frank Zappa albums on Universal. Sheik Yerbouti is mostly a live album, though Zappa added in some studio wizardry to round things out. Features all the typical Zappa-isms, with lots of highly technical guitar and rhythm lines and a bit of ‘wackiness’. Double LP reissue.

Nine Inch Nails
The Fragile: Deviations I

If you thought Nine Inch Nails’ 1999 album The Fragile was already a massive listen, well get this. Trent Reznor has now assembled The Fragile: Deviations 1, a collection of thirty-seven alternate versions and additional tracks, many of them never previously circulated. 150 minutes of archival Nails for you to enjoy, pressed to four vinyl LPs in a limited, not-to-be-repeated edition. On Universal.

Soundgarden
Down On The Upside

The fifth album from Soundgarden turned out to be their last before an acrimonious break-up and a break of more than a decade and a half. Listen carefully and hear the seeds of their arguments! These mostly stemmed from a push towards less heavy, more experimental sounds, which in Chris Cornell’s defence it must be said were fairly interesting. Down On The Upside is reissued by Universal.

Travelogue

The second album from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Travelogue was released in 1980, and is the last record to feature the full original line-up before the Heaven 17 schism. That also means that Travelogue is the last chance to hear the slightly more industrially-edged version of the League’s sound pre-Dare. LP reissue on Universal.

The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico

What is left to say about this classic? The record that pretty much kicked off everything that became indie, alternative, dream-pop, punk, new-wave or what have you. And from a band who were semi-manufactured by svengali Andy Warhol who added sultry chanteuse Nico to the line up and made all kinds of suggestions. Despite that it's the originality of Lou Reed's songs that endure as well as their experimental and diverse method of music making.

The Sex Pistols
Live '76

Fans of the Sex Pistols from back in the day are all dead, struggling to remember their own names, or hiding in shame from their previous incarnations as punk rockers with safety pins through their ears and Bostik stuck to their noses a la Adrian Mole. Spark some fragmented memories with Live ‘76 from The Sex Pistols, with sets from the Lesser Free Trade Hall, Screen on the Green, Islington, Chelmsford Maximum Security Prison and 76 Club. On Vinyl and CD box set.

The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds

Recorded music doesn’t get more iconic than this. Influential as it is, there’s nothing quite like Brian Wilson’s masterpiece, with its magical harmonies and arrangements. It’s hard to get jaded about or tired of. If you’ve somehow managed to avoid this album, no matter what you’re into, you owe it to yourself to dive in. You have the choice of remastered stereo or mono versions on vinyl (if in doubt, mono is the one to go for), or a double CD edition which features both mixes, plus instrumentals and live tracks.
