Dead Moon
Nervous Sooner Changes

Dead Moon played a gnarly form of rock music, bluesy enough to be released on the legendary Mississippi Records. Nervous Sooner Changes almost channels The Rolling Stones at points, quite a compliment for the genre. A good balance between mournful ballads and straight up rockers on this 1995 album, now reissued on LP.

Arvo Pärt
Fur Alina

Arvo Part is a contemporary classical composer who just cuts through the barriers, being experimental enough to attract a certain audience and sheerly beautiful enough to entrance another. Mississippi here present a collection of their very favourite Part pieces, scored for a variety of groupings, from solo piano to string quartet. Spiritual minimal beauty from a master. The Fur Alina LP is housed in a lovely gold-ink sleeve.

Frank and His Sisters
Frank and His Sisters

Frank and his Sisters weren’t some ironically named goofball band from 1993, there was really a Frank and he was really backed up by his sisters. They were a family band from Tanzania. Frank mixed farming with recording and touring and once searched far and wide for all the copies of his record Yes/No so he could destroy them. This music has previously only been available on 78 rpm records. Frank retired from music in the ‘60s.

The Space Lady
The Space Lady's Greatest Hits

“Ethereal street musician who plays space music wearing a winged helmet”, says the website. It’s pretty bang on. The Space Lady has been playing her strange electronic music for some thirty to forty years, and now has the Greatest Hits she deserves. Weird, spacey and fun. The vinyl has a download code and the CD comes with a bonus CD.

Buried Country

Musical archaeologists extraordinaire Mississippi Records team up with Australia’s Flipping Yeah for this release, and an important one it is too. The eleven tracks here draw from the Australian Aboriginal country tradition, a music silenced as often as the people who have made it. The ‘country’ of the title is a broad church - while there are balladeers and down-home ditties here, there are also rockers, droning organ tracks and moving blues numbers. A unique record, Black Country comes with extensive reading.

Michael Hurley
Bad Mr. Mike

More than 50 years into his career as a songwriter, Michael Hurley still produces new work, and Bad Mr. Mike supplies the freshest cuts. Songs are old and new, instrumental and vocal driven, traditional and original: Hurley just lets the music flow out through him any way it can. Recorded solo at home with guitar, banjo and organ: he even did the sleeve art. On Mississippi.

Blind Owl Wilson
Blind Owl Wilson

A compilation of songs by the late great Alan Christie Wilson, aka Blind Owl, otherwise known as the lead singer of Canned Heat. He wasn't really blind, just very short sighted and possibly autistic. And he was also a great guitarist and song writer and his death, at age 27 (two weeks before Hendrix died at the same age) was a great loss to music. This lovely limited edition of 1300 copies comes on shiny vinyl.

Talahun Gessesse
Sima

Sima is a gathering of recordings from 1969 to 1975 and it dips into the multi-faceted vocal performances of Talahun Gessesse. Ranked alongside Mahmoud Ahmed, Gessesse is considered to be one of the greatest voices of Ethiopian soul music, holding ballads and raucous rock songs with equal ability. Pretty special, this one.
