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 Teardrop Explodes
Wilder

The glittering but short-lived career of The Teardrop Explodes came to an end with 1981’s Wilder, only the second album completed by Julian Cope and co. before they disintegrated. More complex and moodier than its predecessor, reliant on loops and synths rather than guitars, it now gets a heavyweight vinyl re-issue.

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.

Scott Walker
Climate of Hunter

Typically of Scott Walker, his eleventh album (originally released in 1984) is both experimental in sound and texture but features guest spots from the mainstream likes of Mark Knopfler and Billy Ocean. There's no-one quite like him is there? This was a 'comeback' album released ten years after his previous solo LP and shows his music becoming ever more fractured. Next stop: Tilt.  

Tears For Fears
The Seeds Of Love

The Seeds of Love was the third album by Tears For Fears. It was originally released in 1989. It saw the duo of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith and friends go for it production-wise with the epic Beatles-esque single Sowing The Seeds of Love. They also mined soul and jazz influences. Another single, Woman In Chains featured the then unknown Oleta Adams, who went on to have a successful solo career. Also includes the singles Advice for the Young at Heart and Badman’s song. Reissued in a variety of formats.

Scott Walker
Til The Band Comes In

'Til The Band Comes In' was Scott Walker's sixth record, originally released in 1970 and consisting of two distinct sides: on the first, Walker gives us a bunch of new solo material, while on the flip there are covers on covers. While Walker started as a renowned pop crooner with a baritone and a lot of melodrama, 'Til The Band Comes In' has hints of the artist who would eventually stop all that easy listening and go hard with the avant-garde.

Scott Walker
Tilt

Contrary to what it may seem, ‘Tilt’ was not a complete shift in trajectory for the former pop star Scott Walker. Prior to its release in 1995, Walker had spent years finding ever more oblique methods to communicate his ideas, however, is undoubtedly true that ‘Tilt’ was his most daringly realised attempt yet. Desolate, ardently experimental, but also beautiful, a pathway which would lead to later opuses such ‘The Drift’, ‘Bish Bosch’, and ‘Soused’ - his collaborative LP with drone metal legends Sunn o))) .

Soft Cell
This Last Night In Sodom

Originally released in 1984 as their third studio album, This Last Night In Sodom marked the messy end of Soft Cell’s first incarnation, with Marc Almond and David Ball announcing their split around a month before it came out. Featuring two minor hits in ‘Soul Inside’ and ‘Down In The Subway’, it now gets a vinyl re-issue. 

Soft Cell
Non Stop Ecstatic Dancing

As a great man once said, "Ruddy hell, it's Soft Cell". The legendary synthpop duo comprising Dave Ball and Marc Almond had a string of superb LPs including the mini album 'Non Stop Ecstatic Dancing'. Unbelievably, the whole record was written and recorded in one week (about as long as some groups take to clear their throat). Primitive machine music, time constraints, and Almond's weirdly out-of-key singing combine in a magical alchemy. 

Johnny Cash
The Complete Mercury Albums 1986-1991

One of the lesser known eras in Johnny Cash’s long career, this new 7xLP box set collects the six studio albums The Man In Black released on Mercury Records from 1986 to 1991, including one with fellow legends Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. Re-mastered from the original tapes, it’s a long-overdue spotlight. 

Johnny Cash
Easy Rider: The Best Of The Mercury Recordings

The period that bridged the gap between Johnny Cash’s time on Columbia Records and his classic stint on American Recordings was spent on Mercury Records. The six albums he released in this time included a collaboration with his old pals from Sun Records, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins and the song The Wanderer, which was recorded with U2. The highlights of this period from the mid-80s to the early ‘90s are collected together on Easy Rider: The Best Of The Mercury Recordings. Also includes the hit Get Rhythm.

Various
Django Unchained Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

The soundtrack for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ features not a single Django Reinhardt joint. Missed a trick there, haven’t you Quenty? What it does contain is new music from Rick Ross, Jamie Foxx, Ennio Morricone (and others) jostling for position alongside a bunch of older music - often stuff originally composed for other spaghetti westerns.

Tears For Fears
Songs From The Big Chair

One of Tears For Fears best selling albums on picture disc. Reasons to be cheerful. Songs From The Big Chair hit the shelves, and promptly flew off them, in 1985. It contains the singles Shout, Head Over Heels and Everybody Wants To Rule The World. The album is being reissued to coincide with the Classic Albums documentary.

James
Gold Mother

A reissue of James’ third album, first released in 1990 in the wake of their big hit ‘Sit Down’ and responding to that success with a big epic pop-rock sound. Anthems was the name of the game on Gold Mother, as evidenced by the presence of violins and trumpets and the like. Double LP reissue, featuring the original 1990 tracklisting.

James
Seven

Here is your chance to scoop up vinyl reissues of some of James’s vintage albums, courtesy of Mercury. Seven, which I’m afraid is their fourth album rather than their seventh, was produced partly by Killing Joke’s Youth, and partly by Steve Chase… can you hear the difference? Double LP reissue.

James
Pleased To Meet You

Sold out - sorry!

James
Millionaires

Vinyl reissues of some of James’s vintage albums, available now thanks to the Mercury label. Millionaires is the last James album of the nineties, and it treads quite a bit of different territory during its running time, with both smooth straightforward pop and more ingenious excited songs turning up. Double LP reissue.

Johnny Flynn
A Larum

2007 was the year singer songwriter Johnny Flynn came of age playing a host of shows as well as releasing this his debut album. He travelled out to the Seattle countryside to record this with producer Ryan Hadlock (the Strokes etc) and the result more than lived up to the energy and pathos of his live shows. Now perhaps more famous as an actor, the album shows Flynn at the embryonic part of his musical career. 

Olafur Arnalds
Broadchurch - The Final Chapter

Like Olivia Colman and David Tennant, composer Olafur Arnalds has also returned for the third and final series of Broadchurch, with another suite of emotional minimal musical themes, played with tremendous subtly by both orchestra and smaller ensembles. Broadchurch - The Final Chapter is released on vinyl by Mercury.

Jake Bugg
Jake Bugg

Self-titled debut album by Nottingham singer-songwriter Jake Bugg. He co-wrote most of it with former Snow Patrol chap Iain Archer, and Crispin Hunt of The Longpigs helped out on one track. It was the first flushing of his signature approach which took his Alex Turner style northern scamp-like delivery into full on skiffle mode and spawned iconic tracks such as 'Trouble Town' and 'Lightning Bolt'.

Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

2007 brought the second album of Arcade Fire, the semi-conceptual grandeur of Neon Bible. The great Canadians outdid themselves here with an album full of religious fear, chamber orchestration and general vastness, with bangers like ‘No Cars Go’ and the organ-doom of ‘Intervention’ just some of the set-pieces. Sony reissue.

Cocteau Twins
Four-Calendar Café

Originally released in 1993, Four Calendar Cafe was Cocteau Twins most pop orientated album to date with Liz Frazer's distinctive vocals more to the front of the mix with her lyrics marginally more comprehensible. A gorgeous work, it showed Cocteau Twins could emerge out of their dreamy world and still be truly affecting.
