Miles Davis
Bitches Brew

'Bitches Brew' is a jazz standard living outside of jazz standards, believed to be one of the best ever made. Miles Davis originally recorded the record of long jazz fusion tracks in 1970; here, the original master tapes have been used to reissue the music as a double LP via Mobile Fidelity. 'Bitches Brew' is recommended for fans of improvisation and weird compositional stories (Davis "arranged his band in a semi-circle" and conducted them vaguely - sounds like he might have heard 'Trout Mask Replica' once or twice). Perhaps the most experimental of Davis' works.    Tracks: Pharaoh’s Dance Bitches Brew Spanish Key John McLaughlin Miles Runs the Voodoo Down Sanctuary

Prefab Sprout
Steve McQueen

Other than the odd '80s hit here and there Prefab Sprout have never had the commercial success they deserve but this could be to do with them never touring and chief sprout Paddy McAloon increasingly resembling some Grizzly Adams/Moondog cross breed. They have though achieved a cult following and critically lauded with McAloon being regarded as a songwriter of the highest order. Steve McQueen was their second album and probably a career highlight. It contains several classics such as When Love Breaks Down, Faron Young and Appetite. Gorgeous music.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Are You Experienced

Classic rock doesn’t come much more classic than an album that features Purple Haze, Hey Joe and The Wind Cries Mary. The Jimi Hendrix Experience (the band that featured none other that Jimi Hendrix on guitar and vocals) announced themselves to the world with their debut Are You Experienced in 1967 and blew the socks off everyone that heard it. It still has that effect, as you will find out when you buy it….

Iggy & The Stooges
Raw Power

It's called 'Raw Power', but much of the conversation around this seminal punk rock record from Iggy Pop & The Stooges is about its recording. Originally mastered by David Bowie, it got the remaster treatment from Iggy himself just over a decade ago, showing off both's approach to these ferocious songs. Both are available on this reissue from Music On Vinyl, but concentrate on the songs, yeah?

Leonard Cohen
I'm Your Man

I’m Your Man is such an amazingly high quality Leonard Cohen album that fully six of its eight tracks are included on his greatest hits compilation. Cohen fully embraced synthesiser backing here, and the whole record simmers with dark glamour. Includes crucial Cohen cuts like ‘Ain’t No Cure For Love’, ‘Tower of Song’ and the title track. Vinyl reissue on Legacy.

Run-DMC
Raising Hell (picture disc)

Raising Hell is thirty years old. It was the third album by New York hip-hop trio Run DMC. The album was a commercial breakthrough, not only for Run DMC, but for hip hop in general. It contains some of Run DMC’s best known singles: Walk This Way, My Adidas and It’s Tricky. Pressed on to 150gm picture disc.

Neil Hefti
Batman Theme / The Batusi

We all known Neil Hefti’s essential Batman theme from the 1960’s Adam West series: why, it’s even been covered by Sun Ra. This release on Legacy presses up the groovy original single to 7” again for the first time in too long, backed with B-side ‘The Batusi’. Pressed to yellow vinyl, in a limited edition on Legacy.

Jeff Buckley
You and I

The recordings on You and I are a remarkable find for Jeff Buckley fans: a clearly-recorded studio session of the great man, performing solo. Covers of The Smiths, Bob Dylan and Sly & The Family Stone are accompanied by previously-unheard spins on 2 originals. This is the first ever release of these intimate recordings. On Columbia / Legacy.

Depeche Mode
Exciter

Depeche Mode were best when they synergised their bleak experimental depths with excitable pop hooks, and Exciter is a prime example of both aspects of their sound coalescing, producer Mark Bell ensuring the two were balanced to make a slight but dramatic work. It's full of the same twilit and lovesick brooding that made the synth-pop outfit so fashionable.

Prince
Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic

Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic on purple vinyl? It’s what the Prince formerly known as The Artist (and known at the time of this particular release as the unpronounceable ‘Love Symbol #2’) would’ve wanted. Originally released in 1999, this one enlists the collaborative talents of Sheryl Crow, Ani DiFranco, Eve, Chuck D and Gwen Stefani.

Miles Davis
Kind of Blue

It may seem ironic that the biggest-selling album in jazz history is such a subtle and understated beast - perhaps less so when you consider it as a sublime masterpiece of subtlety and understatement. Improvisation is an enigmatic and elusive thing, especially at the envelope-pushing level captured here, with Miles and sidemen forging ahead and abandoning the strictures of hard bop for the relative freedom of a modal approach. Even for musicians of the calibre of Coltrane and Bill Evans, there’s a special unplannable magic here, where every player is utterly in the zone and in synergy. They all unleash majestic lines like it’s the easiest thing in the world. Kind of Blue is no daunting, towering edifice - it doesn’t insist on itself, but is a gently seductive and laidback entity. It’s beautifully recorded record too, and one of the nicest vinyl experiences you can have.

Prince
Ultimate Rave

The Legacy label live up to their name with this amazing package of 2 CDs and a DVD which hold the last two full lengths Prince released under his symbol moniker, Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic and the remix album Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic. In addition you get a live DVD of his live incredible concert at Paisley Park.

Miles Davis
Sketches of Spain

Initially, Miles Davis was just going to record a version of Spanish composer and vituoso pianist, Joaquin Rodrigo’s classical guitar piece Concerto De Aranjuez after composer, arranger and regular collaborator, Gil Evans had transposed the music from the only known recording. However, this got Davis and Evans’ interested in more Spanish music and they began researching the country’s folk and dance music for what would become Sketches Of Spain. The album was recorded between 1959-60 and is regarded as one of his many classics.

Pearl Jam
Yield

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. Yield, their fifth album, was originally released in 1998, and finds the band in proper alt-rock mode. This reissue, the first time Yield has been on vinyl since back-in-the-day, is out on Legacy in a die-cut jacket.

Leonard Cohen
Songs of Leonard Cohen

Almost 50 years ago, Leonard Cohen made the move from writing poetry and novels into songwriting, releasing his debut album. Songs of Leonard Cohen is full of crucial numbers like ‘Suzanne’ and ‘So Long, Marianne’, that no student of song can really be without. Plus, can you really do without that cover shot of Laughing Len peering out at you from the shelf? 180g vinyl reissue.

Wu-Tang Clan
Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)

Do you want me to introduce this record to you? Really? Because if you don’t yet know what happens when you Enter The Wu Tang, you should probably just buy this on sight. For existing Wu-Tang Clan fans, this is the classic debut reissued, pretty crucial for your collection.

Patti Smith
Outside Society

Patti Smith was quite the thing when she appeared in 1975 with 'Horses'. The album Michael Stipe said "tore my limbs off and re-arranged them in a different order". It's hard now to appreciate how different and unique she was at that time of hoary old rockers. Now you can view her entire career through a new lens as this retrospective collects the best bits of her work in chronological order.  

The Psychedelic Furs
Talk Talk Talk

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Talk Talk Talk, dating from 1981, was a very popular record at the time, and the brash alt-rock sound shows us why: perfectly primed for college radio!

Jeff Buckley
Mystery White Boy

Live album from the legendary Jeff Buckley. There are all recordings made between 1995 and 1996 while Buckley was touring his seminal studio album, Grace. Mystery White Boy was compiled by Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother, and first released in 2000. An opportunity to experience Buckley at his creative peak. 

The Psychedelic Furs
Mirror Moves

Mirror Moves was The Psychedelic Furs fourth album. Released in 1984, it came 7 years into their career and by then, the gritty, punky, art-rock sound had been refined and smoothed out. The furs found the sweet spot where the balance of distorted guitars and acerbic lyrics brought chart success rather than obscurity.

The Psychedelic Furs
Forever Now

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Forever Now was the group’s third album, and has their post-punk sound commercially augmented by Todd Rundgren in the producer’s chair. Vocals still snarl though.

The Psychedelic Furs
Midnight To Midnight

Midnight To Midnight was the fifth album by The Psychedelic Furs and was originally released in 1986. The band were getting more attention around this time due to a re-recorded version of their song Pretty In Pink being used in the film of the same name. Midnight To Midnight includes their biggest stateside hit, Heartbreak Beat.

The Psychedelic Furs
The Psychedelic Furs

The Psychedelic Furs might not have done anything new for a while, but their old stuff sure as hell still stands up. With Sony Legacy reissuing all of the London band’s seven studio LPs, now would be a good time to reconnect with one of the foremost post-punk groups of the 1980’s. Their eponymous debut LP, veering as it does between doomy Joy Division-ism, The Birthday Party-style skronk-punk and The Fall-esque stomps, acts as a neat encapsulation of the sound of the country in the first year of Margaret Thatcher’s leadership.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland

Hendrix on 180 gram! Yes, you heard correctly. This double LP vinyl package has been lovingly put together by the Voodoo Chile's down at Legacy. You don't want to get stuck in Cross Town Traffic and miss this one. You don't need even need to go All Along The Watch Tower, but you do need to snap it up quickly. It's Jimi, it's Electric Ladyland - what more can I say baby?

Jimi Hendrix
Both Sides Of The Sky

Excuse me while I listen to this guy! Both Sides of the Sky is a baker’s dozen of recordings that ol’ Jimi Hendrix cut between 1968 and 1970. The majority have never previously seen the light of day. This album the trio of deep-cuts LPs that also includes Valleys of Neptune and People, Hell & Angels. Stephen Stills appears on ‘$20 Fine’ and ‘Woodstock’. 

Leonard Cohen
Songs From A Room

Songs From A Room was Leonard Cohen’s second album and was originally released in 1969. The album sessions began with David Crosby producing. Cohen wasn't happy with the results and recruited Bob Dylan’s producer Bob Johnson to help put his ideas on to tape. Contains the classic Bird On A Wire. 

Leonard Cohen
Songs of Love and Hate

Songs of Love and Hate was the third studio album by Leonard Cohen. It was originally released in 1971. It was produced by Bob Johnston who also worked with Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. Tracks include Avalanche, which has been covered by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, the widely covered Famous Blue Raincoat and the single Joan of Arc.

Bob Dylan
The Times They Are A-Changin'

The Times They Are A-Changin’ is Bob Dylan’s third album, and his first to only contain original songs. And what songs! As well as the stone-cold classic title track, you’ve got ‘With God On Our Side’, ‘The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll’, ‘Ballad Of Hollis Brown’... And all sung and played by Dylan solo. Historically and musically essential vinyl reissue on Legacy.

Pearl Jam
No Code

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. No Code found the band kicking back against their success with a wider, more experimental range of sounds: a bit of psych, a bit of garage. This reissue, the first vinyl release for the album since back-in-the-day, is out on Legacy.

Stranger Things: Music from the Netflix Original Series

Netflix Original Series Stranger Things perfectly combined the aesthetic of 80s horror and teen buddy films into one addictive ride. This CD/double LP relives the soundtrack that helped do this, with evocative hits from The Clash, Joy Division, Toto, Duran Duran and more - alongside dialogue from series one and two.

Leonard Cohen
Field Commander Tour 1979

This live album was recorded in Hammersmith Odeon, London and in Brighton. Leonard Cohen has said it was his best tour ever, and with the six piece backup transforming his simple music and raising it to the heights, it’s a beautiful capture of his iconic sound from the place where music, poetry and romance intertwine. On double vinyl.

Depeche Mode
Music for the Masses

Music For The Masses by Depeche Mode was released just as the band were making it really big. The title suggested that the band felt as though they were making it for a large audience. As it turned out, they were. This was the breakthrough album for the band in the US. It was regarded by critics at the time as being their most accomplished album to date.

Johnny Cash
At Folsom Prison

At Folsom Prison is one of the most beloved Johnny Cash recordings. The music here, more than on any other recording is imbued with his grit, his spirituality and his wry sense of humour. The set list was put together especially for the concert and the songs deal with subjects that would likely be close the inmates thoughts. It was because of this album that Johnny Cash earned the moniker The Man In Black.

Johnny Cash
At San Quentin

At San Quentin is the second prison concert album by Johnny Cash and was originally released in 1969. It followed on from the success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison. Like its predecessor, At San Quentin features an eponymous song damning the institution. It also includes the classic version of A Boy Named Sue.

David Bowie
Heathen

David Bowie reissue time! Heathen was his 2002 release and his 22nd album. He throws in a couple of covers to this one, including a nice version of Pixies ‘Cactus’. Heathen is understood to be one of the better late-period Bowie albums. The reissue is, of course on heavyweight 180g vinyl. On Friday Music.

Miles Davis
Miles Davis Quintet: Freedom Jazz Dance: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 5

A real piece of insight here for the Miles Davis lover, or really just jazz lover. Covering Davis’ studio work between 1966-1968, It includes some final takes that made it onto his Miles Smiles, Nefertiti and Water Babies albums, but the gold is in the 2 hours of rehearsals and the conversations between the players that have been left in. A great little insight into their process.

Depeche Mode
Playing The Angel

Depeche Mode keep it clinical with Playing The Angel, a self-explanatory live record that takes choice cuts from records such as Songs Of Faith and Devotion and Violator and puts them to the stage. Theatrical but brooding and ironed out in every discipline, this is pretty rudimentary stuff from one of the greatest synth-pop bands of all time.

Depeche Mode
Sounds of The Universe

Depeche Mode asserted their plans to make the most ubiquitous songs ever with Sounds of the Universe. That said, the record is one of the more modest entries in their canon, caged in with restrained but still pantomimic programmed percussion and slow-moving synth; it's a pop masterpiece of the gradual variety. Be patient.

Depeche Mode
Ultra

Ultra was Depeche Mode's 2007 comeback album following their much publicised drink and drug problems and the split with Alan Wilder. It starts off pretty well with Barrel of a Gun but it's hard to convince anybody that it's their best work despite sleek production by Tim Simenon (Bomb the Bass). Indeed trying to find plaudits for it online all I could find was that it ranked number 71 on a list of the "100 Albums That Shook Polish Rock".  

Sly & The Family Stone
Stand!

Not too much we need to say about Sly & The Family Stone’s fourth LP really. Stand! remains the band’s critical and commercial peak. It’s shifted tonnes of units since it was first released in 1969, spawned a U.S. number one single in ‘Everyday People’, and has firmly ensconced itself in the ‘best albums of all-time’ conversation. Stand! has even been inducted into the U.S. Library Of Congress, so significant a record is it. Now reissued on two nice, heavy slabs of wax.

Mike Watt
“ring spiel” tour ’95

In 1995, the Minutemen man Mike Watt embarked on a solo US tour, enlisting other alt-rock lifers like Eddie Vedder and Dave Grohl to back him up. “ring spiel” tour ‘95 is the first commercial release of a performance from this excellent tour, being a document of a set at Chicago’s Metro club. Exciting double LP release on Legacy.

Run-DMC
Christmas In Hollis / Peter Piper

Very limited 12” vinyl picture disc of Run DMC’s 1987 Christmas tunes Christmas In Hollis and Peter Piper on Legacy. Despite what you may think about a 1987 Run DMC Christmas song, both these tracks are great, mixing killer scratching over traditional songs, heavy sleigh bell percussion and plenty of amazing lines from the band.

Bob Dylan
Pure Dylan

Pure Dylan is another Bob Dylan compilation, except that this one draws focus away from the hits and onto some lesser-heard gems from the legend’s voluminous back catalogue. By presenting Dylan songs that haven’t become over-familiar, we can discover the great man anew. Double LP set on Legacy.

Pearl Jam
Off He Goes / Dead Man

Pearl Jam reissues! As well as 2 mid-90’s albums, we have the accompanying singles: here is Off He Goes / Dead Man from 1996’s experimentally-leaning No Code. We’re told that the song is essentially about Eddie Vedder himself being a bit of a dick. Now re-pressed on 7” vinyl by Legacy, in an edition of 500.

Pearl Jam
Who You Are / Habit

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. As well as the albums, we have the singles: Who You Are / Habit was the first single from No Code. The drums and sitar-heavy sound was pretty surprising new territory for Pear Jam, and it ruffled a few feathers. Now re-pressed on 7” by Legacy.

Pearl Jam
Hail Hail / Black, Red, Yellow

It's time for some Pearl Jam reissues! As well as two mid-90’s albums, we have the accompanying singles: here is Hail Hail / Black, Red, Yellow from 1996’s experimentally-leaning No Code. Although Hail Hail is a proper rocker really... Now re-pressed on 7” vinyl by Legacy, in an edition of 500.

Pearl Jam
Given to Fly / Pilate & Leatherman

Pearl Jam reissues! As well as 2 mid-90’s albums, we have the accompanying singles: here is Given To Fly from 1998’s Yield, backed with Pilate & Leatherman. Moody smouldering alt-rock songcraft of the kind that Pearl Jam truly excel in. Now re-pressed on 7” vinyl by Legacy, in an edition of 500.

Pearl Jam
Wishlist / U & Brain of J (Live)

Pearl Jam reissues! As well as two mid-90’s albums, we have the accompanying singles: here is Wishlist from 1998’s Yield, backed with U and a live version of Brain of J. Proper old alt-rock Pearl Jam songcraft, apparently recorded more or less as an improvisation. Now re-pressed on 7” vinyl by Legacy, in an edition of 500.

Big Star
Complete Columbia: Live at University of Missouri

In one of the more surprising moves of the '90's former Box Top and professional grump since 1976 Alex Chilton was persuaded to reform his classic early '70s power pop band Big Star. The two surviving/interested members were joined by crazy haired Seattle two-some the Posies. This collection is the complete recording of their set at University of Missouri and includes run throughs of many of their ignored at the time but now popular numbers as well as nicely a take on fallen Big Star comrade Chris Bell's 'I Am the Cosmos'.  This is the first time the complete set has been released.  

Joe Strummer
Gangsterville

Arriving on never seen before artwork, this features four compositions from the former the Clash leader and all round decent bloke. Still seems wrong that he's no longer with us. Anyway this is released in collaboration with his estate. The lead track sound unnervingly like Bruce Springsteen being led down a reggae rabbit hole. 'Only' 4000 for the world. 

Johnny Cash
The Best Of The Johnny Cash TV Show

The Johnny Cash TV show was apparently a thing where the honourable country groover would be like, "hey, here's another country groover that isn't me", and we would see for ourselves how their music fared. Cash would perform too, of course, because how can you curate content if you can't also create it? This RSD compilation features the show's best and brightest performances, including Waylon Jennings, James Taylor, Cash with Lynn Anderson, Tammy Wynette and a rather fantastic coupling of Cash and Joni Mitchell (doing "Girl From The North Country", no less!). Also, Ray Charles does "Ring Of Fire". Pretty cool.

Loretta Lynn
Full Circle

Loretta Lynn is a beloved country and western superstar, but she is also an incredibly talented songwriter and arranger. On Full Circle, her first album in a decade, the 83-year old's songs of loss and heartbreak are as sharp as ever. She has also assembled a great band, and the mournful slide guitar, dingy bar piano and energetic fiddle sound lovely.

Jimi Hendrix
The Cry Of Love

A repressing of the first Jimi Hendrix record to be released after his death, 'The Cry of Love' shows off the guitarist going deep into his extensive guitar lexicon, performing as if with some sort of prescience of his instrument. The record initially came out in 1971 and was affectionately released by Hendrix's old collaborators: Eddie Kramer and Mitch Mitchell are both important figures in the sequencing and producing departments. It's re-released here thanks to Legacy. There's a studio version of "Star Spangled Banner" on here, so phew for that.

Jimi Hendrix
Rainbow Bridge - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Rainbow Bridge was the second posthumous release after his untimely death. Long bootleged on vinyl, this is the first official LP release in many years and has been lovingly remastered by Bernie Grundman on 180g, and sounds better than it probably did back when it was first released in 1971. It features such legends as Buddy Miles, Noel Redding and even everyone's favourite girl group The Ronettes.
