Doves
Lost Souls

Doves were of course once Sub Sub who had an enormous hit with *that* song 'Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use)' but in a twist in the usual guitar band picks up synths career pattern put down their 303s and picked up guitars to become a decent big league emotional rock act as Doves. 'Lost Souls' is their debut album. Originally released in the year 2000.

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.

Brian Eno with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno
Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks (Extended Edition)

First released in 1983 as the soundtrack to documentary film ‘For All Mankind’ about the Apollo moon landing, and now highly recognisable in its own right after use in countless films, TV shows, ads and the Olympics opening ceremony, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois’ album Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks gets a deluxe re-mastered release. Also includes an entirely new album of 11 instrumental compositions re-imagining the soundtrack to the original documentary. 

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.

Doves
The Last Broadcast

Most bands follow the well worn trajectory of starting off all guitary and ending up adding dance and electronica influences into their work. Not Doves. They emerged out of Sub Sub who had an enormous dance hit in 1994 with Aint No Love. Doves were (and are) a totally different beast writing big emotional indie-rock that like their previous incarnation was remarkably successful. The Last Broadcast was their second LP from 2002.

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!

KT Tunstall
Drastic Fantastic (Ultimate Edition)

The ‘Ultimate Edition’ of ‘Drastic Fantastic’, the second studio album from Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall. Originally released in 2007, the record featured some unused songs written before her breakout debut ‘Eye To The Telescope’ three years previously. This expanded version includes acoustic versions, live tracks, remixes and B-sides.

Brian Eno
Film Music 1976 - 2020

Brian Eno needs no introduction in these parts. Film Music 1976 - 2020 gathers together the best bits of Eno’s film and TV scores from the past 44 years. It includes pieces he’s written for films by the likes of David Lynch, Danny Boyle, Peter Jackson, Michelangelo Antonioni, Derek Jarman and Michael Mann along with his BAFTA winning score to Top Boy.

Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine

'Pretty Hate Machine' was the first time the public heard Trent Reznor's unique and approachable take on industrial music as Nine Inch Nails. Unlike the distortion heavy goth rock jams of classic releases like 'The Downward Spiral' or 'Broken', NiN's debut is more akin to the synth and electropop of Depeche Mode or New Order, albeit a fair amount darker. It includes the stone-cold classic single 'Head Like A Hole', plus the bangers 'Terrible Lie' and 'Sanctified'. An intriguing release that's a clear standout in Nine Inch Nails' discography, it's hard to believe this classic is over 30 years old.

Nirvana
MTV Unplugged In New York

It was quite the moment when the hitherto loud and raucous Nirvana calmed down enough to perform an acoustic set for MTVs Unplugged series. The performance was a revelation, taking in highlights from their back catalogue plus covers of David Bowie and Meat Puppets. It was a crying shame that we never got to see how the band would progress but at least we were left with this superb document. 

Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Liverpool

In stark contrast to their production-heavy debut ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’, Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s second studio album ‘Liverpool’, saw the band actively encouraged to play their own instruments. Released in 1986, the heavier rock sound here led to a lower commercial performance for the band around the world - though 'Liverpool' was still critically acclaimed and yielded the excellent UK Top Five single ‘Rage Hard’.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Welcome To The Pleasuredome

When Frankie Goes To Hollywood released their debut album ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’ in late 1984, off the back of two inconceivably enormous singles in ‘Relax’ and ‘Two Tribes’, pre-orders alone meant it was guaranteed a UK no.1 spot. Sprawling and lavish, in many ways this record represents the zenith (or nadir, depending on your outlook) of pop production in the Eighties.

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?

The Best Of Bond… James Bond

If you want every Bond theme ever then you've come to the right place. This 3xLP (or single CD) set collects the lot, from classics such as Shirley Bassey's 'Diamonds Are Forever' right through to more recent attempts from the likes of Sam Smith and Billie Eilish. The list of artists on 'The Best Of Bond ... James Bond' is quite extraordinary - where else would Matt Monroe rub shoulders with Duran Duran?

Johnny Cash
American VI: Ain't No Grave

There's something strange about albums like 'American VI: Ain't No Grave'. In many ways it is a priviledge and pleasure to hear titans like Johnny Cash exploring their oncomming deaths, as he does so masterfully here, with a particularly spiritual current running through the tracks. But it also means one more of our heroes is gone.

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

Originally released in 1969, the Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from the band’s first two LPs. Wales own John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU. I mean, how sweet is 'Pale Blue Eyes'?

Gong
Love From The Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-75

Sound the Gong gong, this is a big one. Love From The Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-1975 is centred around the four LPs that the legendary psychedeliacs released in that time (Flying Teapot, Angel’s Egg, You and Shamal), but there’s so very much more going on here. Across these 13 (!) CDs we get a plethora of concert recordings, Peel Sessions, bonus tracks and alternate mixes. Most of the tracks here are previously unreleased and all are rendered in the highest possible audio quality. Extensive liner notes, an illustrated lyric booklet and Daevid Allen’s hitherto-unseen artwork help to make Love From The Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-1975 the definitive chronicle of one of what is arguably band’s greatest epoch.

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.

Julian Cope
Saint Julian

Saint Julian was the third solo album from former Teardrop Explode and arch druid Julian Cope. After a couple of eccentric works beloved of fans but without mainstream success, Saint Julian dialled up the commercial sheen and contained its own Top 40 smash in World Shut Your Mouth proving that you can make music on your own sometimes barely explainable terms and also be a pop star at the same time. What a man.

Johnny Cash
American II: Unchained

1994's 'American Recordings' provided something of a late career resurgence for the outlaw bard Johnny Cash. All in all there would be 6 such album, 'Unchained' being the second. It was recorded with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and as with much of the American series, featured a host of masterful covers. This time Cash tackled Jude Johnstone, Beck and Soundgarden.

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.
