Public Enemy
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

No hiphop collection should be without the 1989 breakthrough LP from PE. Chuck D’s lyrics and delivery matched with The Bomb Squad’s confrontational production represented a new high-water mark as to what rap could be capable of. The track listing is jaw-dropping - Bring the Noise, D...view item »

Johnny Cash
American II: Unchained

The second in the series of Johnny Cash’s American Recordings starts with Beck’s “Rowboat”, which is soon followed by Soundgarden’s “Rusty Cage” and Dean Martin’s “Memories Are Made Of This”, thus keeping the selection of covers diverse. This time he has a backing band though, and it&rs...view item »


Underworld’s 1994 LP ‘Dubnobasswithmyheadman’ is arguably one of the most influential British electronic records of all time. 20 years on since its release, Underworld’s Rick Smith has remastered it to celebrate its anniversary. Presented as a deluxe reissue, this altered version of an iconic classic is more of a revamp t...view item »

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground (the third one!)

To celebrate the enduring longevity and indelible influence of The Velvet Underground Polydore/UME are releasing 'The Velvet Underground-45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition', which features 64 tracks in a six-CD package. Originally released in 1969, The Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from t...view item »

Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine

Trent Reznor has become legendary for the sound he perfected in "Pretty Hate Machine," his exceptional debut album. Wrapped in catchy industrial beats and sizzling basslines, he exposes all the rage and pain from being betrayed. Like a bad breakup, it's raw and rough and painful, but there's a strange catharsis once it's over. "Pretty Hate Machi...view item »

Beastie Boys
Ill Communication

Beastie Boys reissues raining down on your turntables these days! Ill Communication, coming at you from 1994, with all beats produced, lines rapped and instruments played by the Beastie Boys, spawned one of their most famous songs, Sabotage. But these guys gave us so much more: shortly after the ...view item »

Beastie Boys
Hello Nasty

Although only 17 years old, I’m sure we can all agree that Hello Nasty was due for a reissue. Featuring Mixmaster Mike on the turntables, the Beastie Boys prove that they have more skills than yelling and popularizing wide-angle video clips. The album is out on 2x180gr vinyl, and sounds as rich as...view item »

Grace Jones
The Disco Years

Disco motherload! Four whole LPs, containing Grace Jones’ first three albums (Portfolio, Fame, and Muse), and, crucially for disco music, the 12” extended versions of the singles. The quality is absolutely faultless, Grace herself and the genre of disco being right at the t...view item »

MTV Unplugged In New York

No Nirvana collection is complete without this historical live recording session. Recorded only a few months before Kurt Cobain's tragic death, Nirvana were an unlikely candidate for an unplugged concert. Hits like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "In Bloom" and "Lithium" were what the group were renowned for; this performance showed the world that th...view item »


Soundgarden’s 1994 classic Superunknown gets a 20th anniversary reissue with not one, but two deluxe versions to choose from. It will also be available on vinyl. The Super Deluxe version is an expansive 5 CD package featuring the remastered album, demos, rehearsals and b-sid...view item »

Massive Attack

Mezzanine is a dark masterpiece, as black, as glossy and as intimidating as the beetle creature on its cover. Angel and Teardrop turn up on TV often enough (and rightly so), but the whole album is worth digging into for its uneasy moods. This hasn’t been available on record for a while, so...view item »

Public Enemy
Fear Of A Black Planet

Chuck D. and Co.’s third album will hit 25 in 2015, so this vinyl reissue couldn’t come any sooner. In fact, Fear of a Black Planet hasn’t been repressed since 2000! Really, there’s very little that can be said about Public Enemy that hasn’t been said already -- deadly serious politica...view item »

Johnny Cash
American VI: Ain't No Grave

A must have record if you are a Johnny Cash fan. No trademark Johnny Cash deep voice, it is apparent these songs were recorded in his last days. Only one song on the record is written by Johnny Cash, the rest are covers. However, once the Man in Black covers a song, it instantly becomes his. This album is a reflective look back at his life but a...view item »

Johnny Cash
The Legend Of

'The Legend Of...', a best-of compilation originally released in 2005, chronicles the anthemic and widely canonized country rock of Johnny Cash. The record includes many standards from the songwriter and performer in black, including his prison-related songs ("San Quentin", performed in the prison as part of his tour, as well as "Folsom Prison B...view item »

The Big Lebowski

The soundtrack to a properly classic film, The Big Lebowski, is brought to vinyl. As well as the excellent, bowling-hallucination-featuring cover, you get music from Captain Beefheart, Meredith Monk, Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan amongst others. Pressed on cream-colour...view item »

Jane's Addiction
Live In NYC

Where can we start with Jane’s Addiction? Where can we start with Jane’s Addiction live in New York City? It’s best to let the music do the talking… This double vinyl LP captures an electric set recorded at Terminal 5 on December 29, 2012 during the band's "Theatre of Escapists" tour. ...view item »


One from the ‘90s, it’s Laid, the 1993 album from Manchester group, James. It reached number 3 in the UK charts at the time and was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Complex and produced by Brian Eno no less. It’s an album of catchy alternative rock ...view item »

Johnny Cash
American Recordings I-VI

This collection continues to burn a candle for the country pillar known as the Man in Black. This year, a small light is already burning: the complete box set of the American Recordings I - VI. That’s seven times 180 grams of vinyl (1260 grams total!) of Johnny Cash, a veritable treasure trove worth its weigh...view item »

John Williams
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Depending on your age and cultural background, John Williams’ score to E.T. The Extraterrestrial may well form a pillar of your childhood memory. In case you ever wanted to relive those memories without watching the film, UMC have you covered with this reissue of the full original soundtrack onto 180g vinyl....view item »

Nino Rota
The Godfather

A fine addition to the ever growing reissues of Italian soundtracks from the likes of Ennio Morricone and Piero Umiliani, here we have the iconic soundtrack to the epic film; The Godfather, by Nino Rota. It’s a soundtrack that oozes Italy and everything about it; the sun, ...view item »

Laid / Wah Wah

The album which made James and the album which lost them many of their new fans, Laid and Wah Wah were actually meant to be released together; Laid as a jolly, punchy rock album, which recruited many American fans to the Manchester group for the first time, and Wah Wah as a jamming alternative. ...view item »

Wah Wah

James recorded their critically and commercially successful album Laid alongside Wah Wah during their sessions at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Complex with Brian Eno at the production buttons. The two albums were meant to come out together, Laid a collection...view item »

1991: The Year Punk Broke

Years ago, back before DVDs, I was hanging out at a friend's house and he got out a videotape, cradled preciously in his hands, saying, "You've got to see this! It's pretty rare." That videotape was 1991: The Year Punk Broke. It was crammed full of classic-era grunge, mostly from Sonic Youth and Nirvana but with appearances from the likes of...view item »

7IN - 83-88

R.E.M were once, of course, absolutely brilliant. Due to their haphazard last few years the youngsters these days just don't remember the good times. Well now you can pretend to have been there all along with this box set of the eleven singles they released between 1983 and 1988 featuring replicated original picture sleeve art. Put them sep...view item »

Boris Blank

A panoply of exotic electronica from one half of Yello. Collecting unreleased material from over thirty years, Electrified documents the unique and far-reaching journey of Boris Blank. Running from ambient to industrial via house and techno this double-disc set is something to sink your teeth into. Out on 2CD or 2CD + D...view item »

Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path

Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path is a 3 CD career-spanning collection of rarities from Soundgarden. The collection brings together live tracks, b-sides and songs that have been peppered around on compilation albums and soundtracks. Echo Of Miles features 7 previousl...view item »

Johnny Cash
American Recordings

What a great idea Rick Rubin had when he asked Johnny Cash to come and record for him. A few original songs and some covers from artists as diverse as Nick Lowe, “The Beast In Me” and Glen Danzig “Thirteen”. This, the first of what turned out to be a series of six albums, including two that were released posthumously, is ...view item »

Frank Zappa
Apostrophe (')

Fucking Frank Zappa. Of course he'd release a record named '. The loopy bandleader and fun time avant-garde artist originally released his eighteenth record in 1974, so we can forgive him for not realising how hard it would be to Google search in the future. It leans to the more comical side of Zappa's work, with hard-to-grasp lyr...view item »

Smashing Pumpkins

The fourth Smashing Pumpkins record, 'Adore', was originally released three years after the exhaustive, sprawling double album 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness'. 'Adore' saw the band move away from their alt rock/grunger perspective into prescient electronica territory. It's being reissued now with unheard demo materia...view item »

Quincy Jones
The Italian Job

The Italian Job soundtrack was composed by Michael Jackson's producer Quincy Jones and includes 'on days like these' and 'getta bloomin move' on which is referred to as the self preservation society which has been used in numerous commercials and is synomous with the film. This release features up graded art and new notes by Johnny Trunk...view item »

Tears For Fears
The Hurting

No info on this yet but we think its a two-disc set with remastered version of the original LP on the first disc, while a number of B-sides and remixes are featured on the other.  We'll see. You could save some cash and visit any charity shop in the entire UK and get the original album for 50p....view item »

Monty Python
Monty Python's Total Rubbish

Monty Python unveil this career spanning box set entitled Monty Python’s Total Rubbish: The Complete Collection. All of their nine UK albums including "Monty Python’s Flying Circus", "Another Monty Python Record", "Monty Python’s Previous Record", "Matching Tie and Handkerchief", "Live at Drury Lane", "Holy Grai...view item »

Grace Jones

Grace Jones’s fifth album, and the second recorded at Chris Blackwell’s legendary Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas, reissued as a weighty double vinyl set. Perhaps the inimitable diva’s defining work, it mixes originals ("Pull Up To The Bumper", "Feel Up", "Art Groupie") with Grace’s typically inspire...view item »

The Rolling Stones
Got Live If You Want It EP

Got Live If You Want It was recorded on The Rolling Stones' fifth UK tour in 1965 at shows in London, Manchester and Liverpool. This was the Rolling Stones' third and final 7’’ EP for New York independent record label ABKCO. Renowned for its raw sound quality, the record has more appeal as a historical ...view item »

Johnny Cash
American IV: The Man Comes Around

If you only buy one of Johnny Cash’s American Recordings albums, this is the one. The title track is one of the best original songs on all six of the albums. The obvious highlight here is Cash’s incredible cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt”, a contender for the greatest cover ever recorded. This is the last one that w...view item »

Frank Zappa
Roxy & Elsewhere

The zany experiments of Frank Zappa and his several mothers are documented here in Roxy & Elsewhere, a grab-bag live album that places him firmly in the Roxy Theatre, but also in a few other randomly selected venues, because the moustached avant-jazz stalwart can't stay in the same place for ...view item »

Frank Zappa
Uncle Meat

It's a relief to have this available on vinyl again. I remember buying an original copy that I was desperate to hear despite the fact the (second hand) vinyl itself was virtually unplayable in its very much warped-up state. So it's a pleasure to finally hear that it sounds just as warped as it did back then :) Recorded between '67 and  '68 ...view item »

The Velvet Underground
White Light/ White Heat: 45th Anniversary Edition

Rather crucial reissue of a very crucial album. It is hard to conceive of music today without The Velvet Underground’s White Light / White Heat in the mix. This is available in double CD format, double LP format, and a big fat triple CD box, crammed to the gills with rare tracks, alternate mixes and live stuff....view item »

Nick Drake

This collection offers the curious newcomer a neatly arranged box of beautiful music, presented in a truly authentic way: the packaging replicates the wooden box that Nick Drake’s mother used to send him cakes during his time at Marlborough College. For those seeking to explore the work of this much celebrated sing...view item »

Straight Outta Compton

Reissue Heavyweight 180 gram LP with download card on UMC. This is a reissue of the 20th anniversary edition, and if I need to tell you any more about this then get bloody clicking. This is vital hip hop. Type it into youtube, and start your life already. With the biography film coming up later this year, you better get your homework done, other...view item »

Nick Drake
Bryter Layter

Bryter Layter should obviously be in your record collection, and luckily you don’t have to spend £1,000,000 on a crackly old dog of a copy anymore. Island have faithfully remastered and reissued this beautiful thing from the (almost) original master tapes, and packaged it so it’s just like how your Dad would have bough...view item »

Pulp Fiction

The Pulp Fiction soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks ever released. Really. I mean, where else will you find Dusty Springfield, Al Green and biblical references soaked in the blood of the deserving? Apart from a bible belt high school dance, of course. Vinyl as part of a ‘Back in Black’ release from UMC celebrating the best alb...view item »

Public Image Limited
This Is Not A Love Song

Great re-issue of cult song by PiL on picture 7 inch. This song is kind of anthem for John Lydon's after Sex Pistols era but not less, the B-side is really amazing theme....view item »

Public Image Limited

Essential deluxe reissues of essential cutting-edge post-punk: John Lydon’s Public Image Limited. Album was recorded in 1986 with Bill Laswell producing and a star-studded cast of session players (Ginger Baker! Ryuchi Sakamoto!). This reissue on U...view item »

In Utero - 20th Anniversary - Deluxe

Once a grunge kid, always a grunge kid. Nirvana’s painfully prescient swansong ‘In Utero’ came out 20 years ago, which is making me feel old. I was only 11 when poor Kurt shuffled off the mortal coil but this album, and their other two for that matter, were a staple to me throughout my awkward te...view item »

Frank Zappa
Freak Out!

Frank Zappa's extraordinary 60 plus album output is, in essence, one single thematically related piece of music. Now or in 1966, this album is an audacious, vital masterpiece by one of the greatest artists of the century. (And did I forget to mention it's melodic, catchy and funny, too?)For the uninitiated, or the under initiated, this is the pe...view item »

Frank Zappa
Over-Nite Sensation

Often panned by many Zappaphiles as being too commercial, the album nonetheless contains some of Zappa's most brilliant satire as well as some of his tightest compositions. If you are new to Zappa, or are just moderately familiar with some of his tunes, this is the album to begin with. But don't be fooled by the seemingly simple riffs and hooks ...view item »

Dr. No - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

It's 'Dr No', one of those spy films where James Bond is very charming, orders drinks at bars, raises his eyebrows and kills other, less nice spies. The soundtrack gets a reissue here on vinyl, showing off the original score and of course giving us that pretty famous James Bond theme tune, which is performed by the John...view item »

Live And Let Die

The remastered release of LIVE AND LET DIE is much improved. The previous issue was no different than the track line up on the original 1973 vinyl record -- or eight track tape, depending on your antiquated stereo. Not only does this release include additional superb tracks, some of the original cuts have also been lengthened and more closely co...view item »

The Cure
Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

The Cure’s seventh album, from 1987, was a sprawling, raucous 18-track double that gave them scope to hit all the bases. There’s doomy bombast (The Kiss), Eastern exotica (If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, The Snakepit), whimsical pop (Why Can't I Be You?), a Baudelaire rewrite (How Beautiful You Are…), straight...view item »

Frank Zappa
Finer Moments

It was quite the chore trying to find out any information at all about 'Finer Moments' in the days leading up to its release. What's important, however, is the music, and this release of instrumental jams, without a doubt, represents the band(s) at their improvisational best. The highlights for me are the live tracks, such as the epic, horn-lade...view item »

Julian Cope
Saint Julian

Julian Cope's music has always sounded different to whatever else is going on at the time. His post punk band The Teardrop Explodes were different to other bands at the time. In away, it makes his music genuinely timeless. There's a bit of an '80s sheen on "St. Julian", his third solo album from 1987, ...view item »

The End

Nico on voice and harmonium is assisted by Phil Manzanera on guitar, Eno on synths and producer John Cale on a range of instruments. Together they create a bleak and chilling musical landscape for Nico's funereal vocals. All compositions are by Nico, except The End by The Doors and Das Lied Der Deutschen by German romantic composer August Heinri...view item »

The Sex Pistols
Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols

You can debate the aesthetics and ethics of the Pistols all you want, but there’s no arguing that their only real album is, well, the bollocks. Where would we be without the results of people being inspired by it, being annoyed by it, or reacting against it? This is all the Pistols you need, really (the odd stray b-side no...view item »

Saint Etienne
I've Got Your Music

On the basis that they all still look pretty hot (especially the lady one) and that they are still popular and have nice cover art I was hoping that Saint Etienne still had some of the musical chops that made some of the...view item »

Saint Etienne
Sound Of Water

I suspect that Wiggs, Stanley & Cracknell may have been listening to a lot of Brian Wilson before recording "Water". With this album, the group sounds like it has harnessed a much more mature, if somewhat melancholy, sound. You just get the feeling that, after Good Humor, the band simply wanted to push the envelope, creatively. I can't help ...view item »

Leaders Of The Free World (Deluxe Edition)

This is a strong pop ballad band and this third album, Leaders of the Free World, is the best place to start because it has their most accessible melodies and the perfect mix of slow-tempo and mid-tempo pop ballads, which will draw comparisons, musically, to Coldplay and, vocally, to ...view item »

Saint Etienne
Good Humor

1998 saw Saint Etienne release their fourth album Good Humor, which was recorded in Sweden and marks a movement away from the band’s dancier origins. As well as more of a balance between acoustic instruments and synths, the album has quite a loungey soft vibe, almost like a flipside to what Stereolab...view item »
