The Smiths
The Queen is Dead

'The Queen Is Dead' is thought by many to be the Smiths greatest achievement. Not for me, nothing with 'Vicar In A Tutu' on it should ever be considered a classic. However it does contain many of their greatest moments, the title track, 'There is a Light....' and 'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' to name but three. The Smiths at their confident best just before things started to go slightly wrong.   

Prince and the Revolution
Purple Rain (2015 Paisley Park Remaster)

Seriously exciting stuff here for Prince fans: as well as a remastered version of the deeply classic album Purple Rain, the CD versions of this reissue also include a whole disc of contemporary tracks from the great one’s immense and closely guarded archives, which haven’t even been bootlegged before! Revel in the rarities. On Warner Bros.

Liam Gallagher
MTV Unplugged

Old monkey chops himself, Liam Gallagher was ill when Oasis recorded their obligatory MTV Unplugged set in 1996. Fortunately for him he’s carved out a solo career for himself so he could finally get to record one despite the band being defunct. His set includes a run through some of his solo favourites, but there’s a handful of Oasis classics in there, too.

Fleetwood Mac
Rumours

Who hasn't heard this before? Well if you haven't then you are in for a treat. It's one of the biggest selling albums of all time and the reason why is because it is soft rock hit after soft rock hit. Most of these songs were FM radio smashes but the album has a dark lyrical undertone as the band's internal dynamic was..um..complicated to say the least. If you haven't already picked this up for 10p at your local car boot sale then we have a new Clear vinyl edition.

The Magic Gang
Death Of The Party

The Magic Gang have been getting played on Radio 1 and have received the accolade of Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World. Their new album, Death of the Party promises to be exactly the opposite of what its title suggests due to the addition of some Northern Soul grooves to their modern indie sound.

Biffy Clyro
A Celebration of Endings

Scottish alternative rock gods Biffy Clyro aim to make it three UK no.1 albums in a row with new effort A Celebration of Endings, their eighth record overall. Working with producer Rich Costey once again, the trio embrace all of the elements that have made them so acclaimed and popular throughout their two-decade career, from the jagged rock of their early years to the lighters-in-the-air stadium indie that propelled them to the top of the charts.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Yes all of those first three please finishing off with a little Paul Daniels. This was the Red Hot Chili Peppers fifth record originally released in 1989 and the first to see the band start to crossover to mainstream success. It toned down the metal riffs of their previous Mothers Milk LP and contained their first hit with the unusually quiet and reflective Under the Bridge.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Californication

Although they had previously been well known for their riffy funk rock and habit of wearing socks on unusual parts of the body, Californication was the commercial breakthrough for Red Hot Chili Peppers. It marked the return of guitarist John Frusciante which yielded a leaner more melodic and soulful sound. It has long been their most successful record and now 20 years after its inception you can get it on a rather nice looking picture disc double album.

Vangelis
Blade Runner

Composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 classic, the Blade Runner soundtrack has assumed legendary status amongst fans of synthesizer music. Its combination of classical compositions with synth work perfect mirrors the futuristic atmospheric ambient noir of the original film. A classic of the genre.

Liam Gallagher
Now That I’ve Found You

Now That I’ve Found You is a single taken from Liam Gallagher’s second solo album, Why Me? Why Not? It sounds kinda like Oasis with a bit more of a ‘60s jangle. No doubt the chorus will have fans singing along at gigs, whether he reaches his dream of playing to massive fields of people or whether they’re just in medium-sized venues.

Neil Young
After The Gold Rush

Neil’s 1970 masterpiece is sublimely balanced. The lonesome piano stoner anthem of the title track, the eerie / uplifting Don’t Let It Bring you Down, Only Love Can Break Your Heart’s hippy wisdom, a pair of Crazy Horse rockers, and a few weepies. There’s not a song here that wouldn’t be an essential setlist inclusion for most artists, but this is Neil we’re talking about. Hence the charming miniatures Cripple Creek Ferry and Til the Morning Comes are relatively overlooked and Tell Me Why rarely gets a live airing. The recent remaster was a revelation and best of all on vinyl.

Van Morrison
Astral Weeks

Astral Weeks was the second album by Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison. It was originally released in 1968. Morrison assembled a band of jazz musicians to create an album that was more expansive and meandering than his previous work. It’s highly regarded among fans and its influence has even shown on recent albums such as Primrose Green by Ryley Walker. Highly recommended!

Fleetwood Mac
Tusk

Listen will you...seriously. Tusk is one of the greatest albums ever made. It was the much anticipated follow up to the zillion selling Rumours and was the moment that Fleetwood Mac decided it would be time for the over long double LP. But it kind of needs to be long for all the moods and emotions it attempts to get through. From gorgeous soft rock ballads to Lindsey Buckingham's off the wall power pop, Tusk has everything...including marching bands and most importantly a dog on the sleeve.

Muse
Origin Of Symmetry

It's the Muse album that has the slightly louder and more abrasive songs than the other Muse albums! Wherein they ruin a perfectly good Nina Simone standard in "Feeling Good" and do some other stuff with pop rock that once got compared to Radiohead but would probably actually just get remixed by Moby.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Colorado

Colorado is the first album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse since the epic Psychedelic Pill in 2012. The band believe that they had it in them to make an album that was equal to their best material, so they got together and gave it a go. This particular incarnation of Crazy Horse include Nils Lofgren on guitar and piano.

Originals features fifteen songs that Prince wrote for other artists (most of them hits), except that here we finally get to hear the great man’s original versions recorded himself, all but one of them previously unreleased.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972

The weird anachronistic blues rock of Captain Beefheart is celebrated in 'Sun Zoom Spark', a monstrous boxset which collects four of his early 70s recordings: 'Like My Decals Off, Baby', 'The Spotlight Kid', 'Clear Spot' and a record of out-takes called all appear. 'Sun Zoom Spark' is a good find for newly initiated Beefheart fans who want to go further into his story, as well as for completlist fans out there.

John Coltrane
My Favourite Things

My Favourite Things is one of John Coltrane's most enduring albums. Although it consists of him talking on Gershwin and other pop and show tune standards, he uses these as a base for his out-there modal experiments twisting the compositions this way and that. True avant-garde brilliance from the mid '60s.

On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural Beauty.

Liam Gallagher
I've All I Need

Liam Gallagher has a brother. Technically, he has two. He now also has a 7" called "I've All I Need" which I am probably not going to listen to, but I do think about Oasis once a fortnight and I'm okay with having that much of LG in my head. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Liam has a brother.

Foals
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2

The days when Foals made the sort of short-circuiting post-punk that had them briefly touted as a math-rock band are long gone. As anyone who’s checked in with the group’s last few records can attest, Yannis et al now deal in a brand of meaty stadium-rock that comes off like an art-school version of Rage Against The Machine. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2, the companion piece to the Part 1 that was released earlier this year, continues to lean into this sound.

Prince
Dirty Mind

The recently-departed Prince was renowned for his Dirty Mind, and he was never concerned about showing it: the title his third album displays it proudly. So buy this LP reissue (you won’t be stream it online, Prince’s lawyers are too good) and get dirty… It’s what he would have wanted. On Warner Bros.

Prince
Controversy

The recently-departed Prince was always happy to pursue Controversy. This fourth album of his achieves that by combining Prince’s super-sexual obsessions with political comment (see ‘Ronnie, Talk to Russia’ for example). All to the funkiest imaginable synth-grooves, needless to say. Vinyl reissue on Warner Bros.

Liam Gallagher
Why Me? Why Not.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

Echo & The Bunnymen
The John Peel Sessions 1979-1983

One of Britain’s most august indie institutions, Echo & The Bunnymen present an archival dig for all of the sessions they recorded for the legendary John Peel during their formative years from 1979 to 1983. Many of the 21 songs - presented over two LPs / one CD - do not appear on their early albums, as the band actually used the sessions to experiment with new material.

The Stooges
The Stooges

Garage rock legends the Stooges unleashed their raucous self titled debut onto an unsuspecting world in the otherwise flowery and peaceful year of 1969.  it contains several of their classic songs including I Wanna Be Your Dog and No Fun. You'd have thought critics would have flipped but it was met with a lot of disdain at the time being described as 'stupid' and a step back in a music scene that was moving terrifyingly towards progressive rock. Little did they know that it's thrilling raw power (see what I did there?) would be a major influence on punk rock. 

Liam Gallagher
One of Us

Please please please pleeeeeeeeeease let this new Liam Gallagher single be a cover of ABBA’s heartbreak anthem ‘One Of Us’. Can you imagine - the man with a fork, in his world of soup, belting out one of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid’s most achingly beautiful compositions. I mean, it’s not going to be - the writing credits alone tell us that 'One Of Us' is an LG original - but that’s not going to stop us dreaming. England expects.

New Order
Get Ready

Once exceptional, New Order have seemingly spent the latter part of their career trying to undo the work of the first bit. Get Ready was their 2000 era comeback album and saw the band return to a tougher guitar-led sound with Peter Hook's bass turned back up again following its disappearance on Republic. Possibly lacking the invention and panache of their golden years, it now sounds a lot better having heard what would happen on subsequent albums.

Biffy Clyro
Balance Not Symmetry (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Grief is the central theme to Jamie Adams’ film, Balance Not Symmetry. Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil found a connection with the director and the film’s theme. This led to a certain amount of introspection in the emotionally charged soundtrack. The Scottish alt-rockers also find time for their usual stadium-ready anthems and a little experimentation.

Neil Young
Time Fades Away

Time Fades Away is a live album comprised of entirely new material. Originally released in 1973, it is one of Neil Young’s more obscure albums, possibly due to the fact that it has been unavailable for more than 30 years and was never released on CD. It was recorded on the tour to support Harvest, Neil Young’s most commercially successful album to date. His backing band here are The Stray Gators, who backed him on the aforementioned Harvest.

Neil Young
Songs For Judy

Songs For Judy sees Neil Young delving into his rich archive again. This time, it’s a debut release for his own Shakey Pictures Records label. The album gathers together solo live recordings from November 1976. There are well-known classics such as Heart Of Gold, The Needle And The Damage Done and After Gold Rush coupled with early versions of songs such as White Line which wouldn’t appear in studio form until his 1990 album, Ragged Glory. This album’s USP, however, is No One Seems To Know - a song that has never been released anywhere before. Double LP on 140g vinyl and CD.

Muse
Simulation Theory

When rock band Muse properly jumped the shark is probably very much up for debate, but I’d say that the Simulation Theory cover firmly settles the question in terms of their artwork. Looks like fan art. Anyway, this eighth studio album of theirs is full of colossal space-rock-pop, the kind of thing that these fellas really excel at. Big and dramatic and fun.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Re-ac-tor

This is where it all began. Not Neil Young’s whole career, obviously, but the period of it where Young and his then-label Geffen started their legendary beef. Kicking off with 1981’s Re·ac·tor and lasting for most of the subsequent decade, Geffen were tearing their hair out at the fact that Young kept providing them with records that weren’t essentially Harvest Part 2. While Re·ac·tor is still more Neil Young-y than, say, Trans, the combination of heavy electric guitar and New Wave influences certainly ruffled a few feathers. It’s a great record.
  • Label(s):

Neil Young
This Note's For You

I know that this is an unfashionable opinion, but this particular Norman Records™ description writer thinks that Neil Young did his best work in the 1980’s. Albums like Trans and Everybody’s Rockin’ are either some of the all-time great musical shitposts, visionary records that simultaneously trailblaze and satirise the retro-maniacal curve of the decade, or both. 1988’s This Note’s For You manages to yoke together Young’s contemporaneous archness with some of his best mid-period songcraft. There’s also plenty of anti-corporate fire here - possibly something to do with the fact that his old label Geffen had just sued him for, in essence, not being Neil Young-y enough.

This is all lies of course. The Flaming Lips haven’t had any real chart hits as such, but they are releasing Greatest Hits Vol. 1 which is a sprawling 52 track 3 CD collection containing some of their best-loved songs and more obscure ditties from 1992 onward.

The Flaming Lips
Telepathic Surgery

The Flaming Lips were building up a head of steam at the end of the 1980’s, but the band’s mainstream breakthrough was still a good few years off. As such, the LPs from this period see the Lips indulging both their love of classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and the experimental tendencies they inherited from … Pink Floyd. Case in point: 1989’s Telepathic Surgery, a record that has a fair heft of Pink Floyd to it. Proggy freakouts, sound collages, songs called ‘Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)’, that sort of thing.

Neil Young
Roxy – Tonight’s the Night Live

Roxy - Tonight’s The Night Live was recorded on the opening night of the famous club on L.A.’s Sunset Strip in September 1973. Neil Young, with his backing band, The Santa Monica Flyers - Ben Keith, Nils Lofgren, Billy Talbot and Ralph Molina took to the stage to play a set of new material that would eventually make up the 1975 album Tonight’s The Night. Neil Young was reeling from the drug-related deaths of two friends, musician Danny Whitten and roadie, Bruce Berry, consequently there’s a cathartic energy to the live recording.

New Order
Waiting For The Sirens Call

The 'No' on the sleeve should possibly be a warning to you if you were thinking of delving into the later works of New Order. The once innovative and always fascinating band lost their way somehow as they split and reformed and split again. 2005's Waiting For the Sirens Call was another attempt to regain the formula and was a more rocky work than they'd produced for some time. At least Peter Hook played on it which is more than can be said for the subsequent Music Complete.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Zuma

Released in the same year as Tonight’s The Night, Zuma was more of a straightforward (but still a classic) Neil Young & Crazy Horse album. It features the live favourite Cortez The Killer and Don’t Cry No Tears which has been covered by Teenage Fanclub. There’s also an appearance from his old pals Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real
Paradox

If you weren’t excited enough about the fact that you can soon Netflix & chill with the ‘Godfather of Grunge’, he’s got a new album out too. Neil Young & The Promise Of The Real have soundtracked Paradox - the aforementioned Netflix film in which Young stars - and the LP features Neil Young doing plenty of Neil Young-type stuff.

The Flaming Lips
Scratching The Door: The First Recordings Of The Flaming Lips

In the press release for Scratching The Door: The First Recordings of The Flaming Lips, it credits them with two decades of musical boundary pushing, it’s nearer four decades, not that I wish to be pedantic, but credit where credit’s due, right? Anyway, this is exactly what it says it is, recordings from the earliest days (1983) of the Oklahoma experimental rockers. So early in fact that it's Mark Coyne and not his brother Wayne on lead vocal duties. Remastered by Dave Fridmann with help from Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins. CD on Warner Bros.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Rust Never Sleeps

Classic Album Alert! Famously Canadian singer-songwriter guy -- that has a great voice and is actually very good -- Neil Young sees an album that he did in '79 with raucous band Crazy Horse reissued on pristine 180g vinyl. For the most part recorded live, with a few studio overdubs, it's an energetic and dynamically enlivening record. Young coined the phrase Rust Never Sleeps to avoid complacency and try a more positive and progressive approach to live performance. On Warner Bros.

Mini Dresses
Mini Dresses

Straight outta Boston and almost impossible to google this band play the sort of slo-fi music comparable with Beach House and Mazzy Star but also have the wobbly jangle of large swathes of the Sarah Records back catalogue. Initially a home recording project, the Mini Dresses have already quietly amassed an impressive set of their dreamy pop songs.

The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Live Rust

Here is a re-issue of Neil Young's late '70s live album which was recorded on his 'Rust Never Sleeps' tour of 1978. It was recorded in various venues across the US and features his classic ragged band Crazy Horse backing him on songs from his recent album alongside earlier classics. 180g vinyl re-issue. 

Neil Young
Hitchhiker

Hey look, it's a new old Neil Young record ! Originally recorded in 1976 in Malibu, California, these 10 tracks see Young in acoustic bard mode, with nought but his guitar and voice to craft them from. While some of these songs have resurfaced in other forms, these stripped-back takes were all recorded in a single session. Maybe it'll solve the mystery of why he's so sad at the beach.

Neil Young
Decade

Here's a lad that needs no introduction -- yes, it's Neil Young. Decade compiled no fewer than 35 (thirty-five!) of Young's songs committed to tape between the years of 1966 and 1976. The album features five tracks that had been previously unavailable. The Warner brothers have reissued this outstanding record as a triple vinyl LP in a double-gatefold sleeve. And I got through all that without even saying the word: G**ius.

Stills-Young Band
Long May You Run

Out of the various permutations of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, this was the only collaboration between Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The 1976 album follows in a similar West Coast folk vein to their parent band Buffalo Springfield but there's moments of jazz and synthesised strings to give a more modern feel.  

Neil Young
Comes a Time

After all the earth-scorched rock songs and talk of killin', Neil Young decided to draw back into his folksy shell, following up Zuma and American Stars 'N Bars with a soft country record not a far cry from his classic Harvest. This record's eponymous track is one of his most beautiful and the record's sepia-tinged sparsity proves delicacy to be his strongest point.    

Neil Young
American Stars 'n Bars

Essentially, American Stars 'n Bars is the album Neil Young made after he was done making the classics now firmly established in the old rock man canon. It's a grab-bag of old additional recordings that hadn't quite made it before and features his swirling, semi-proggy "Like a Hurricane", which would later find itself a fan favourite. Heartland and heavy, it feels like a solid continuation of Zuma. 

Prince and the Revolution
I Would Die 4 U

Warner Bros present a series of Prince reissues, this time focused on 12” singles. Reissued in their original vinyl formats with the original artwork and their original B-sides, these singles are available again just as they were meant to be experienced.

This one has the exciting ‘Special Dance Mix’ of Let’s Go Crazy on the A, and ‘Erotic City’ on the B.

Well, blimey, this is the easiest and hardest record to describe to you folks. Prince And The Revolution’s Kiss is just that, a big old smooch of funking rock ‘n’ roll pop, a true classic, which will outlast anything I could possibly say about it.
