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 release of this album, they coined the word mullet. This is your chance to acquire a piece of pop culture history!

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 the band’s first two LP’s. John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU.

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, Don’t Believe the Hype, Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, Rebel Without a Pause.... She Watch Channel Zero?! samples Def Jam labelmates Slayer, though it’s ironic to hear Flavor Flav being judgmental about viewing habits, having since been responsible for one of the worst sitcoms in TV history. Still, no questionable late career choices can overshadow this explosive statement of righteous black rage and defiance, that’s utterly uncompromising and iconic from the title down. Almost an hour’s worth crammed onto this LP but it sounds phenomenal.

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 it ever has. What times we live in!

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 political raps coupled with still incomparable wall-of-sound production courtesy of the Bomb Squad. What more could you want from a hip-hop album?

Underworld
Dubnobasswithmyheadman

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 than a rework, uncoverng an abundance of previously unreleased material and rare alternate mixes, offering a definitive version of its original companion.

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 top of their game during this period. All remastered, all 180g vinyl, all Disco Years.

Soundgarden
Superunknown

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-sides and a version of the album mixed in Blu-ray ™ Audio 5.1 Surround Sound. Beautifully packaged in a hardback book with new artwork, liner notes from Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke and previously unseen photos by Kevin Westerberg. The Deluxe version is a 2 CD set including the full remastered album, demos, rehearsals and b-sides. The Vinyl version is 2 slabs of 180gm vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve featuring 16 tracks.

Massive Attack
Mezzanine

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 Universal are bringing it back on suitably heavyweight vinyl.

Johnny Cash
American VI: Ain't No Grave


  • Vinyl LP (5344167)

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 Blues"), as well as "Ring of Fire" and "I Walk The Line". The record also depicts some of Cash's late-career covers, including his cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" and his work with U2.

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. 

James
Laid

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 tunes which are undoubtedly ‘90s but just as damn good today.It’s punchy, singalong stuff.    

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 weight in gold displaying a long stretch of his career in originals and well-known covers. Some of the most essential country music of all time can be found in this one, but you knew that already.

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.

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, the food, the everyday drama. It’s a classic and rightfully so.

James
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. They were released apart instead and by the time Wah Wah came out, people couldn’t get onboard with its alternative, jamming session tunes. A deluxe boxed set with 4CDs, 68 tracks, 20 unreleased tracks, a 56 page hardcover book of everything you could possibly need to know, four button badges and four postcards. Cor blimey!

James
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 of sing-along rock tunes, Wah Wah the jamming and experimental indie rock companion. The albums were released apart and that is now seen as the reason why people couldn’t understand where Wah Wah was coming from and James failed in America because of it. This 180g double LP with download code gives Wah Wah the glory its fuzzy, rolling rock goodness deserves.  

R.E.M.
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 separately in your collection and reminisce about Stipe's ever-changing '80's hair. 

Boris Blank
Electrified

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 + DVD from UMC.

Soundgarden
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 previously unreleased songs and comes in a neatly presented box set.

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 lyrical content and gleefully silly melodies. Stop listening to Ariel Pink and check this out instead, yeah?

Smashing Pumpkins
Adore

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 material, as well as live cuts. 

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 and also come in a 12" vinyl edition.

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.

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 Grail", "Life of Brian", "Monty Python’s Contractual Obligation Album" and "The Meaning Of Life" - All of these classic comedy albums are all here for the first time to create the ultimate collectors’ edition purchase. This amazing boxset also include a limited edition 7" Single of their 1974 flexi-disc ‘Monty Python’s Tiny Black Round Thing’

Grace Jones
Nightclubbing

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 inspired interpretations (Bill Withers’s "Use Me", The Police’s "Demolition Man", Iggy’s "Nightclubbing") and features the rock-solid dub-funk rhythm section of Sly Dunbar (drums) and Robbie Shakespeare (bass). 180g double vinyl LP.

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 document than as a piece of music.

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 too long.

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.

Nick Drake
Tuckbox

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 singer-songwriter, Tuckbox is a great place to start. 

N.W.A.
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, otherwise you ain’t cool.

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 bought it back in the day. PLUS you get high-res digital files of the tunes, as well as all sorts of trinkets and gubbins to help you imagine like you was there in 1971, baby.

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 albums ever.

Album was recorded in 1986 with Bill Laswell producing and a star-studded cast of session players (Ginger Baker! Ryuchi Sakamoto!).

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 Barry Orchestra.

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 funk (Hot Hot Hot!!!), some hints at what Disintegration would bring, and of course the mighty Just Like Heaven. 2LP reissue, as is only proper.

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 notwithstanding).

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 were doing at a similar time. Reissued on Heavenly.
