Michael Jackson
Off The Wall

Thriller may have been better known but Off the Wall was Jackson at the top of his game. This was the pre-surgery, pre- being 'friends' with children Jackson when he was fully focussed on music and had a point to prove. Although his fifth solo album it was his first with Quincy Jones at the helm and the first where he had complete creative control. Features a host of his best known work such as the self penned  'Don't Stop Til You Get Enough' and the brilliant Rod Temperton duo of 'Rock with You' and the unsurpassable title track.

Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets
Live at the Roundhouse

A joyous memento for all Pink Floyd fans, Live At The Roundhouse sees the band’s drummer Nick Mason, plus assorted back-up musicians, performing under the name Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets performing very early Floyd material at the legendary independent venue in North London performing in May 2019, including some tracks that haven’t been performed live since the Syd Barrett-era iteration of Pink Floyd played them in the late Sixties. 

Jimi Hendrix
People, Hell & Angels

Who guessed that in 2013 we'd be given a brand new studio album from Jimi Hendrix. People, Hell and Angels is actually a compilation of music recorded for the planned follow up to Electric Ladyland. It features mainly the Band of Gypsys line up of Buddy Miles and Billy Cox but legendary drummer Mitch Mitchell makes an appearance or two. For anyone worried about a slur on his back catalogue, the album was universally praised as a worthy addition to the great man's work.

Prefab Sprout
Protest Songs

Protest Songs was the fourth album by County Durham’s pop royalty, Prefab Sprout. It was originally released in 1989 as the follow-up to their hit-filled classic, From Langley Park To Memphis and predecessor to Jordan: The Comeback. It was, however, recorded in 1985 shortly after the band’s second album, Steve McQueen, which is why, artistically, it has more in common with that than the albums either side of it. Nevertheless it is classic piece of the Prefab Sprout discography.

Manic Street Preachers
Generation Terrorists

While it didn’t quite sell the sixteen million copies that the band threatened it would, Manic Street Preachers’ 1992 LP ‘Generation Terrorists’ remains beloved by a generation of fans for its stirring indie-rock songcraft and punkish disposition. Hits like ‘Motorcycle Emptiness’ can still go toe-to-toe with any of the Britpop anthems it pushes up against in modern genre playlists.

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.

Sade
This Far

Sade are the long-running sophisti-pop band fronted by the singer of the same name who have existed in pretty much the same format since 1982. They have produced six sumptuously smooth albums in that time, all of which appear on 'This Far', the first-ever complete collection of Sade's work. As you can probably imagine, 'This Far' is a high-end reproduction - the original tapes of each LP have been remastered at half-speed for extra clarity, and the album sleeves have been meticulously re-produced. All in all, 'This Far' is a gorgeous set.

Teenage Fanclub
Bandwagonesque

Bandwagonesque by Teenage Fanclub was originally released in 1991 - the same year as Nevermind, Loveless and Screamadelica, no less. It is the perfect blend of harmony-laden, melodic ‘60s and ‘70s pop, indie rock and distorted guitars. It is rightly regarded as a classic and any record collection is not complete without it.

Kasabian
Kasabian

There are so many Kasabian records in the world and the first one. It is called 'Kasabian' and sees the band take an ambitious stab at meshing the British alt rock scene into something more electronic, though basically it's the same Kasabian as the Kasabian we've got now: loud and aggressive and in your face.

Teenage Fanclub
Songs From Northern Britain

Songs From Northern Britain was the 6th album by Teenage Fanclub, originally released in 1997. It was their most polished album but still found the band in fine melodic form. Ain’t That Enough and Your Love Is A Place Where I Come From are worth the admission price alone. Nick Hornby is a fan of the album and included the latter track in his book 31 Songs. Initial pressings come with a bonus 7”.

Paul Simon
Graceland

Paul Simon's career was a bit in the doldrums before he collaborated with/stole ideas off (delete where appropriate) African musicians on what would be come his biggest selling record. The album is a marvellous blend of styles and re-invigorated the pint-sized songwriter. Also highly influential to bands like Animal Collective and Vampire Weekend.

Johnny Cash
The Essential Johnny Cash

Say no more: it’s The Essential Johnny Cash. Cash is probably the country artist with the widest crossover appeal, and this double LP compilation shows off why. Early stuff, late stuff, prison stuff and live stuff is all included, as well as duets with June Carter Cash and Bob Dylan. Firm classics all. 2LP on Sony.

Final Fantasy VII Remake & Final Fantasy VII

After releasing the super-deluxe double-vinyl package back in March, Sony Masterworks gives us a massive 7xCD box set housing the soundtracks to Final Fantasy VII Remake and the original 1997 Playstation video game itself that revolutionised the RPG genre. Featuring fan-selected moments from both games.

Teenage Fanclub
Thirteen

Thirteen, Teenage Fanclub’s third album was unfairly treated by critics upon release. This may be as it followed up a bona fide classic in Bandwagonesque. Whatever the reason, it was unfair and with this reissue, it’s time to listen and enjoy with fresh ears. The album saw the band referencing their heroes Big Star with the album’s title and The Byrds with closing track Gene Clark. Initial pressings come with a bonus 7” single.

Teenage Fanclub
Grand Prix

Grand Prix is the album on which Teenage Fanclub perfected their chiming and charming indie rock-cum-power pop sound. Originally released in 1995 on the legendary and now defunct Creation label, the Glaswegian band stepped it up in terms of songwriting and production. Includes Sparky’s Dream and Mellow Doubt. Initial pressings come with a bonus 7” single.

Fleetwood Mac
Before The Beginning Vol 2: Live & Demo Sessions 1970

Before The Beginning Vol 2: Live & Demo Sessions 1970 by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac follows hot on the heels of Vol. 1 which showcased a 1968 live performance. These recordings were found by accident, without any identifying labels and their Fleetwood Mac-ness had to be verified by some Mac aficionados. This is one of the last shows Peter Green played with the band. Triple LP. Booklet includes rare band photos.

Michael Giacchino
Spider-Man: Homecoming

The newest Spider-Man franchise movie relaunch has been a success, depicting just the right balance of Spider-characteristics that the fans like to see. Now the Spider-Man: Homecoming soundtrack, composed by Michael Giacchino (Lost, Call Of Duty) is available to purchase, and in fancy picture disc format too! From Sony Classical.

Bury Tomorrow
Cannibal

Metalcore quintet Bury Tomorrow return on the Music For Nations label with their sixth studio album Cannibal. Boasting the already-released singles ‘The Grey (VIXI)’ and its title track, Cannibal is an eleven-track journey that fits with the Southampton band’s previous outfit, exploring both their melodic and aggressive sides. 

Leonard Cohen
New Skin For The Old Ceremony

Cohen’s fourth album sees him adopting a richer sound palette than the more spartan and downbeat trio of records that preceded it. Chelsea Hotel #2 is the one everyone knows, but the 1974 disc is full of fan favourites such as Who By Fire, Field Commander Cohen and Lover Lover Lover. The lyrical content ranges from the intimately personal to the broadly existential, leavened with plenty of deadpan humour. This vinyl reissue includes a download code.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Proxima (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The multi-award-winning and universally acclaimed producer and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto delivers his original score for Alice Winocour’s upcoming movie Proxima, presented on vinyl and soundtracking the story of a French astronaut whose year-long mission in space will separate her from her young daughter. 

Depeche Mode
Speak & Spell | The 12” Singles

Depeche Mode get into the reissues game in a novel way. Ever the innovators, the group have eschewed the typical remastered-LP-on-heavy-vinyl thing for a series of box sets celebrating their 12” singles. This one focuses on the three hits that were born out of their 1981 debut Speak & Spell. That means ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’, don’t you know! It also comes with a poster and a rare flexi-disc.

Depeche Mode
A Broken Frame | The 12” Singles

Depeche Mode were one of the first major acts to embrace the potential of the 12” single. During their heyday the group would drop luxurious vinyl releases of their hits, always with striking artwork and often featuring extended versions and remixes by the hottest producers. Now a selection of their best work comes remastered and reissued in this fetching box set. A Broken Frame also contains a poster.

Depeche Mode
Construction Time Again | The 12" Singles

Construction Time Again - The 12” Singles by Depeche Mode includes different mixes of tracks from the band’s third album of the same name. Get The Balance Right, Everything Counts and Love In Itself all feature in various guises over 6 12” singles along with live tracks from the era. 6x12” Box Set on Sony.

Jimi Hendrix
Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix

Which is the best Jimi Hendrix album? Probably this one as it contains all the best of his songs including 'Crosstown Traffic', 'All Along the Watchtower' and 'Foxy Lady'. Anyway if you are new to the guitar maestro then this would be a good place to start. They've spread it across a double album too.   

Various
The Turning (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Overseen by producers Lawrence and Yves Rothman, the original soundtrack for upcoming supernatural horror film The Turning contains a breathtaking number of modern indie luminaries and genre legends, ranging from Soccer Mommy, Mitski, Empress Of and Vagabon to icons like Kim Gordon and Courtney Love. 

Prefab Sprout
Jordan: The Comeback

Part of a wider re-issue campaign co-ordinated by Sony with the band’s Paddy and Martin McAloon, Prefab Sprout are repackaging their 1990 fifth album Jordan: The Comeback - and, significantly, it’s the first time it’s been released internationally on vinyl. The album arguably represented the group’s most successful attempt to embrace different sounds into their modernist pop aesthetic.

The Irishman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Featuring classic songs curated by Randall Poster and some original material written by The Band’s Robbie Robertson, this is a double-vinyl package containing the soundtrack for Martin Scorsese’s epic The Irishman, released on Netflix at the end of 2019 and starring CGI-altered physical performances from cinema legends such as Pacino, De Niro, Pesci and Keitel. 

Prefab Sprout
Andromeda Heights

Andromeda Heights was the sixth album by Prefab Sprout, originally released in 1997. This reissue is part of an ongoing reissue program overseen by the band’s Paddy and Martin McAloon. It received average reviews at the time of release but it definitely requires reassessment. It includes the singles A Prisoner of the Past and the gorgeous opener, Electric Guitars.

Prefab Sprout
Let's Change The World With Music

This Norman Records Description Writer (tm) is, as a few of you may know, the world's biggest Prefab Sprout fan. So I'm pleased to see all their vinyl being re-issued. Even I would probably be hard pushed to describe Let's Change The World With Music as a classic though. It was originally meant to be the follow up to Jordan: The Comeback but was shelved until 2009 and released as the original demos. It's an of-its-era oddball record with some deeply religious overtones. Still, discerning music listeners need to lap up every nook and cranny of Paddy McAloon's ever-shifting muse.   

Francesco Tristano
Tokyo Stories

Tokyo Stories by Francesco Trisano is a piano/synth/electronic love letter to the Japanese city. Each of the 15 tracks encapsulates his different experiences in the city. Japanese musicians U-zhaan, Keiichiro Shibuya and Hiroshi Watanabe contributed to the album with Argentine electronic artist Guti and French musical legend Michel Portal also making guest appearances.

Prince
The Versace Experience: Prelude 2 Gold

First time on vinyl for the album Prince made to be given to attendees of Versace's collection at Paris Fashion Week 1995. Back then it was a tape only release which over the years has changed hands for eye watering amounts but wait long enough and everything becomes available eventually and so now even us mere mortals can hear the rare and remixed tracks it touted. 

Prefab Sprout
From Langley Park To Memphis

Part of a wider re-issue campaign co-ordinated by Sony with the band’s Paddy and Martin McAloon, Prefab Sprout are re-releasing their third studio album From Langley Park To Memphis. Housing their most famous track, the UK no.7 hit ‘The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’, it was originally released in 1988 and arguably represented the apex of their commercial fortunes. 

Prefab Sprout
Swoon

Part of a wider re-issue campaign co-ordinated by Sony with the band’s Paddy and Martin McAloon, Prefab Sprout are revisiting their 1984 debut album Swoon. Announcing to the world their distinctive style, it was produced on a small budget yet immediately caught the attention of critics, paving the way for a successful career. 

Aitch
AitcH20

Aitch is a young rapper currently creating waves in the pop world. AitcH20 is he debut 8-track EP. The 19-year old, Manchester-born artist has had a No.3 hit, 'Taste', in his own name, and has also given his vocal skills to the Stormzy and Ed Sheeran number 1 'Take Me Back To London'. Expect more chart-climbing hits soon.

Prefab Sprout
A Life Of Surprises: The Best Of

A double-album re-issue of A Life of Surprises, the 1992 compilation from often-overlooked English pop band Prefab Sprout. Spanning their first five studio albums, from 1984’s Swoon to 1990’s Jordan: The Comeback, plus two exclusive singles ‘The Sound of Crying’ and ‘If You Don’t Love Me’. 

Various
Andy Warhol and Music

Andy Warhol and Music. Well, he was at the centre of the scene involving one of the greatest bands ever to have existed in The Velvet Underground, so why not. This compilation celebrates the life of Andy Warhol by focusing on the music around at the time of this creative boom in the ‘60s and ‘70s. The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground, Debbie Harry, The Isley Brothers, Lou Reed and Tina Turner are just some of the artists included.

Prince
Emancipation

Emancipation was the Prince album that saw him wriggle free of his contract with Warner Bros and he subsequently declared it to be his most important album yet. The freedom let Prince experiment freely with an assortment of genres including house music and blues and even toying with a cover of Joan Osbourne's 'One of Us'. This is its first time on vinyl and it comes in a six LP set on purple (natch) vinyl or easier to handle 3CD set.  

Prince
Chaos and Disorder

Chaos and Disorder was the last album Prince made for Warner Brothers before the big falling out. Despite it featuring some of his most addictive pop tunes yet, he refused to promote it and so it kind of slipped away and has been long out of print. Now he's dead and so there's no-one to for them to argue with, Sony have re-pressed it onto purple (he'd like that bit) vinyl.  

Teenage Fanclub
Howdy!

Changes were afoot when Teenage Fanclub recorded their 7th album, Howdy. The band recorded an album themselves for the first time (in Dave Gilmour’s studio, no less), the addition of Finlay MacDonald on keyboards meant the band became a five-piece and Creation Records was in the process of being swallowed whole by Sony. The bands ear for a good song remained undiminished though - Dumb Dumb Dumb, My Uptight Life and Near You are some of the ingredients that make this a great listen.

The Lightning Seeds
Jolification

The band that brought us 'Three Lions', the Lightning Seeds, are reissuing their smash-hit album 'Jollification'. It's a gently psychedelic synth-pop romp that's full of Ian Broudie's winsome vocals, big choruses, and the odd hands-aloft moment. It's easy to write the Lightning Seeds off as a novelty act, but 'Jollification' goes a long way in showing how they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as bands like Pet Shops Boys, Orange Juice, and the La's.

Lubomyr Melnyk
Illirion

Sold out - sorry!

Depeche Mode
Music For The Masses | The 12" Singles

From 1987’s Music For The Masses onwards, there would be no looking back for Depeche Mode as they ascended to the realm of stadium-filling dark-pop overlords. The album that broken them in America, this latest box-set re-issue of 12” singles covers the era’s four singles - two discs each for massive hits ‘Behind The Wheel’, ‘Never Let Me Down Again’ and ‘Strangelove’, one for the under-rated ‘Little 15’. 

Depeche Mode
Black Celebration | The 12" Singles

The re-issue campaign for Depeche Mode’s singles, grouped in box sets specific to each album era, now reaches 1986’s Black Celebration. The point at which their synth-pop was getting darker and more distinctively gothic, this set contains both 12” versions of ‘A Question of Lust’ and ‘A Question of Time’, and one for the album’s final single ‘Stripped’. 

Elmer Bernstein
Ghostbusters (Original Motion Picture Score)

When there’s something weird, blah blah blah, Bill Murray … Norman Records! Thirty-five years have passed since the release of the iconic movie Ghostbusters, it’s been well over a decade since the film’s OST was put out on any physical format, and the franchise has been rebooted in recent times. As such, the time feels right for someone to give Elmer Bernstein’s Ghostbusters score a new pressing. On this latest edition Sony Classical chuck in a few bonus tracks, new artwork and some liner notes penned Bernstein’s son Peter. The theme song is in there as well, obviously.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Jimi Hendrix and his Experience released their last studio album Electric Ladyland an entire half of a century ago. Any of the 321 pressings of this album archived on Discogs that you may have are now obsolete because here’s the ultimate, the one to reign supreme... at least till the 51st Anniversary. Freshly remastered and buffed with early versions and other unheard studio outtakes, a bluray documentary, a 48-page colour booklet with lyrics, poetry and essays, and, ohhh yes, the 5.1 surround version of the album we all need. It also sports the cover art that Jimi actually originally wanted, so that’s a plus as well.

Prince
Planet Earth

Sony are reissuing some later albums by Prince. Here’s album No.32, Planet Earth, which originally saw the light of day via a free giveaway CD with some bloody newspaper or other. Now it’s being reissued on CD and purple vinyl (what else?!) so at last you can buy your copy without feeling the shame of buying certain publications. A few of his old cohorts played on the album, including Michael Bland, Wendy & Lisa and Sheila E. Includes the singles Guitar, Chelsea Rogers and Future Baby Mama.

Prince
3121

3121 was the 31st studio album by Prince. It was originally released in 2006. Sony are reissuing a bunch of his later albums, and this one will be pressed on vinyl for the first time. It’s weird and funky and beautiful, just like you’d expect from the small purple one. Purple coloured vinyl and CD on Sony.

Prince
Musicology

Musicology was the first of three albums Prince released in 2004 and his 28th album in all.  Prince intended the album to to be a musical education to those who listened which seems like a bit of an arrogant thing to say, but then, Prince wouldn’t have been Prince without having saying stuff like that. Anyway, perhaps buy a copy and get yourself educated. Double purple coloured vinyl and CD on Sony.

Hauschka
A Different Forest

Hauschka, one of the piano lads who continue to dominate the world of accessible contemporary classical music, returns with his debut for Sony Classical. Best known for his work on the prepared piano (essentially filling the instrument with a bunch of variously relevant stuff), on A Different Forest he has opted for a purer approach. This album is heartfelt and imbued with narrative, but no less playful than he's known for being. 

Prefab Sprout
I Trawl The Megahertz

I Trawl The Megahertz was originally released as a solo album by Prefab Sprout's  Paddy McAloon in 2003 but was pretty much ignored by everyone apart from us Sprout obsessives. Shame because it is a incredible work...the album is largely instrumental and spoken word, featuring some his most experimental work, such as the 22 minute title track and one track that, according to McAloon, sounds like a depressed Van McCoy. Now that it won't do the brand too much harm, it is now being issued as a Prefab Sprout album. 2LP (featuring an etched side) and CD on Sony.

Ramin Djawadi
Game of Thrones: Season 7 (Music from the HBO Series)

Season 7 of Game Of Thrones was an action-packed ride of a watch wasn’t it? Loads of dragons and icemen and murdering. And of course this blockbuster business was backed up by big grand themes, as composed by Ramin Djawadi. This collection sums up all the themes and melodies of the series, presenting the music over two LPs. On Sony Classical.

Depeche Mode
Some Great Reward | The 12" Singles

Some Great Reward The 12” Singles is a box set featuring various mixes of tracks from Depeche Mode’s 1984 album of the same name. Mixes of People Are People, Master And Servant and Blasphemous Rumours are spread over 6 12” singles and housed in a lovely box. The latter also features live versions of other album tracks and Depeche Mode classics.

Daniel Pemberton
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Daniel Pemberton’s score to the latest in the never-ending run of Spider-Man movies gets a standalone release. The Ocean’s 8/Steve Jobs composer does a decent job of teaching an old dog new tricks here. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’s mix of symphony and schmaltz might be enough to get Pemberton another Golden Globe nomination.

James Newton Howard
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Extremely prolific film composer James Newton Howard, responsible for the music in The Dark Knight and Defiance, has been tapped to build on John Williams' Harry Potter soundtracks in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Though no one can escape the shadow of Williams' iconic work, Howard still manages to leave his own mark.

Carole King
Tapestry

Carole King not only made her most successful album with Tapestry but also curated her own greatest hits. The album was only her second solo album after a previous life as songwriter to hire but showed her on top of her game and contains a remarkable number of songs which have since become standards. 

Judas Priest
British Steel

While Priest were certainly very commercially-minded at this point, only the churlish or terminally False could turn their nose up at the leather-clad, stud-bedecked joys on offer here. Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight might be played to death but remain agreeable artefacts of metal entryism. Rapid Fire and Steeler bookend the album with speed metal paciness, while Metal Gods and Grinder are crushing mid-tempo monsters. Even quasi-reggae experiment The Rage is a triumph. Priest matched the energy and simplicity of the NWOBHM kids and world domination ensued.

Various
Deadpool 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

You know that bit in The Simpsons where Nelson laughs at the tall man in the small car, and then the man pulls Nelson’s trousers down and makes him march down the street while shouting to the crowd ‘hey look, it’s that boy who laughs at everyone! Let’s laugh at him!’? Well, that same phrase comes into my head any time I come across anything to do with Marvel’s ‘comedy superhero’ Deadpool. The fact that I haven’t seen either of the Deadpool movies either says something about me or him, but I’m not sure what that is yet. Anyway, here’s a recording of the score, which was penned by John Wick composer and Marilyn Manson guitarist Tyler Bates.

Hendrix
Band Of Gypsys

The last full-length recording by the obscure and unpopular Jimi Hendrix. This was Hendrix's first recording without The Experience giving him the chance to test his genius in a different context. Don't worry, his guitar playing is as searing as always. Worth it if only to hear Hendrix wish you a Happy New Year 1970. 

Hans Zimmer & Ben Wallfisch
Blade Runner 2049

If making a sequel to the film Blade Runner wasn’t enough of a challenge already, how about composing the sequel to its Vangelis soundtrack? Hans Zimmer and Ben Wallfisch have answered that question with big booming bass throbs and snatches of Vangelis-esque synth electronics. It sounds great on the big screen, and it’ll probably sound great played loud on your stereo too. Blade Runner 2049’s soundtrack is released by Sony Music Classical.

Various
Call Me By Your Name

Immensely popular soundtrack from the critically acclaimed 2017 coming-of-age drama directed by Luca Guadagnino. Features John Adams, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Loredana Bertè, Bandolero, Frank Glazer, Alessio Bax, Giorgio Moroder & Joe Esposito, André Laplante, Sufjan Stevens, F.R. David, Marco Armani, Franco Battiato, The Psychedelic Furs, Valéria Szervánszky & Ronald Cavaye.

Coldcut
What's That Noise?

Spin your ears back to 1989 and enjoy the debut album of Coldcut once again! The bouncy good-time cut-up party people got started with What’s That Noise?, a particularly lively swirl of breaks, acid house and hip-hop. The guest vocalists on the album includes both Queen Latifah and Mark E. Smith, which has got to be a first. Reissued by Sony.

Band of Horses
Infinite Arms

Things moved quickly for Band of Horses following their formation in 2004. They released two acclaimed albums in Everything All the Time and Cease to Begin and despite an ever revolving membership had stumbled on a gorgeously widescreen sound that seemed designed for long drives across middle America. Infinite Arms continues the trajectory and opens with the stunning Factory an example of their slightly oddball world view which always seems to make you swoon. 

Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

Sold out - sorry!

Hurts
Desire

Oh my God remember this lot? So '80s in approach that they've now adopted the mid period shades and bowler hat look. To be fair their emotional brand of electro rock has done very well for them indeed particularly on the continent so expect more big music with hi-end X Factor production and easi-remember tunes.  

Wu-Tang Clan
Legend Of The Wu-Tang: Wu-Tang Clan's Greatest Hits

GZA, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man, do I need to say more? Double vinyl reissue of the greatest hits compilation actually put together by Wu-Tang Clan. Includes an the “Bloody” version of Protect Ya Neck, a remix of Method Man with alternate verses, selected tracks from film works.

Fool's Gold
Leave No Trace


Bob Dylan
The Essential Bob Dylan

Say no more: it’s The Essential Bob Dylan. It can’t have been easy to determine which parts of the old legend’s huge catalogue were ‘essential’ and which weren’t, but these 23 tracks do a pretty good job, showing us a good few different sides to Dylan’s never-ending journey, including the ‘reedy-voiced beat-poetry’ and the ‘deep-voiced country’ years. 2LP on Sony.

Life In Film
Cold Wire

The debut single from much-hyped London band Life in Film proves that sometimes, hype is well deserved. This young indie band look like they could go far with this tight, well-crafted single, with elements of Johnny Marr’s guitar and Nick Cave’s angst. Keep an eye out for the album dropping in early May 2015. Vinyl 7".

Singles (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Deluxe Edition

Released in 1992, and set in the middle of grunge heaven Seattle, Singles starred Bridget Fonda and Matt Dillon but more importantly for us, it’s soundtrack. Including tracks from Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Citizen Dick, Mudhoney, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains this is a hell of a compilation, nevermind what the film is about. Both versions come with a bonus CD with 18 rare and unreleased tracks from many of the same artists.

Leftfield
Leftism 22

Leftfield’s definitive statement, their debut album Leftism, is now twenty-two years old (sorry to break it to you guys), so a reissue is very much in order. Leftism 22 has been entirely remastered for this release, to make sure that those big beats hit as hard as they possibly can. This reissue comes accompanied by some brand new remixes, served up on a bonus disc to the CD version and as a download code for the triple LP vinyl version.

Jeff Buckley / Sly & The Family Stone
Everyday People

Thought you were familiar with all the material Jeff Buckley recorded in his brief career didn’t you? Well you were wrong: a forthcoming compilation gathers together a selection of previously unheard covers, and this single pairs his take on Sly & The Family Stone’s Everyday People with Sly’s original version. 7” vinyl.

Dustin O'Halloran & Hauschka
Lion (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The new Saroo Brierly film Lion has Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel in central roles and Hauschka and Dustin O'Halloran on the soundtrack. O'Halloran is an experienced film soundtrack composer, whereas melodic prepared-piano tinkerer Hauschka is more often sighted in experimental music contexts, but the pairs different angles intersect wonderfully here. CD release on Sony Classical.

Double LP.

The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses

The Stones Roses eponymous debut is widely regarded as essential by many fans and critics. It was originally released in 1989 and was central to the Madchester movement of the late 80s and early 90s. In retrospect, it's not only a classic and iconic alternative rock record that entered the mainstream, but also a solid entry into the British psychedelic rock hall of fame.

Dr. John Cooper Clarke & Hugh Cornwell
This Time It's Personal

Here’s a new collaboration with a line-up straight out of the 70’s peak punk era, pairing the poet John Cooper Clarke with main Stranglers man Hugh Cornwell. This Time It’s Personal is a set of fondly loved vintage songs covered by the pair, with Clarke unexpectedly doing the singing! Out on Sony no less.

Jimi Hendrix
Machine Gun: The Fillmore East 12/31/1969 (First Show)

This particular performance at The Fillmore East 12/31/1969 has never previously been fully released, even though it is a rare document of Jimi Hendrix’s Band Of Gypsys. Needless to say, the playing is top of the line from Hendrix and co., and the recording quality, newly mixed by Hendrix’s long-term recording engineer Eddie Kramer, is high-grade. CD / 2LP on Sony.

Depeche Mode
Some Great Reward

Some Great Reward was originally released in 1984. It was after its release that Depeche Mode started to gain a worldwide audience. The number of fans turning up to their gigs in the States increased noticeably and the album's biggest hit, People Are People was used by German TV as the theme song for their coverage of the Los Angeles Olympics. Some Great Reward is arguably Depeche Mode's best album as words such as "classic" and "timeless" are often used in the same sentence.

Depeche Mode
A Broken Frame

The second LP from perennial synth-botherers Depeche Mode gets the reissue treatment. Well, we say second LP, but in a way 1982’s A Broken Frame is the first statement from the Depeche Mode we’re so familiar with now. Following the departure of Vince Clarke - he’d gone off to play with Alison Moyet in Yazoo - this album saw Martin Gore become the band’s principle songwriter, a role he has held to this day. A Broken Frame helped set the tone for the run of darker records that the band would make throughout the ‘80s. Contains ‘Leave In Silence’ and ‘The Meaning Of Love’.

Depeche Mode
Construction Time Again

Look at that man wielding an axe. It kind of works as a perfect image for Depeche Mode's third album. The band had been getting interested in the sounds of industrial rock and so started to incorporate banging, hitting things and other forms of racket into their hitherto shiny synth pop. The result was one of their best early day albums and a single Everything Counts that according to the track list is so good it appears on the album twice.  

Depeche Mode
Speak & Spell

Speak and Spell was Depeche Mode's debut album, originally released in 1981. The album is notable for showcasing the talents of Vince Clarke, who was the chief songwriter. Clarke left the band after it was released. Among many of the classics on here Just Can't Get Enough is probably the most well known. Speak and Spell is available on vinyl LP.

Miles Davis
Miles Ahead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Miles Ahead, the big new Don Cheadle biopic of Miles Davis, comes with a soundtrack that is, needless to say, stellar. 11 classic Miles tracks that span the mighty jazzman’s career are included, rounded out by some new compositions by Robert Glasper, working with Herbie Hancock and Pharoahe Monch. All on 2 vinyl LPs.

The Stone Roses
The Very Best Of

Many thought that it would never happen but Manchester indie Gods The Stone Roses look to be releasing new music. They’ll be also be playing some live dates which I'm sure will have middle aged Madchester casualties salivating. For now though you can relieve their past glories with a reissue of The Very Best Of The Stone Roses. It does what it says on the tin and most likely doesn't include 'All For One' On double vinyl LP, housed in a gatefold sleeve and CD.

Miles Davis & Robert Glasper
Everything's Beautiful

Bold stuff here: Robert Glasper reworks slices of sound from the mighty back catalogue of Miles Davis into R&B-inclined new pieces. Everything’s Beautiful also includes soulful vocals from heavy-hitters like Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder(!), all paying their respects to Miles while creating something wholly new.

Manic Street Preachers
Everything Must Go: 20

The first album that the Manic Street Preachers made post-Richie, Everything Must Go is one of their major statements. 20 years on, it now gets its reissue dues in the form of a hefty box: the original album on CD and vinyl, a CD of bonus tracks, and 2 DVDs worth of contemporary footage. There is also a 2CD edition with the bonus tracks.

Primal Scream
Live In Japan

Live In Japan was recorded in 2002, which Primal Scream fans will know puts the band at the peak of their powers, following the releases of XTRMNTR and Evil Heat. Lots of that material appears here, played with aggressive vigour by a line-up that included Kevin Shields. Premium Scream. Double LP reissue with poster, on Sony.

Hurts
Surrender

Surrender is the third album from British electronic duo, Hurts. It follows on from their commercially successful albums Happiness and Exile which made the top ten in the UK and several other european countries. It contains the singles Some Kind Of Heaven and Lights and was produced by long-time collaborator Jonas Quant along with Ariel Rechtschaid and Stuart Price.

Everything Everything
Get To Heaven

Everything Everything return to your ears with a whole new album, with eleven tracks of their trademark indie complex-pop. The arrangements are busy, but arguably blended with pop dynamics a little better than on their past work. The three-part vocal harmonies backing up Jonathan Higgs’ swooning vocals also make a return. CD or LP, on Sony.

Craig Leon
Bach To Moog

Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it moogingly well is! It’s Johann Sebastian Bach set to moog synthesizer. Produced by Craig Leon, with the exception of strings every sound on the album is driven out of the bizarre and wonderful moog, which celebrates it’s 50th anniversary in 2015 and also the 10th anniversary of the death of its creator, Dr. Robert Moog. Bach to Moog is playful fun, embrace it!

Leeds-based Pulled Apart By Horses have returned with a brand new, much-anticipated 12 track album 'Blood', self-released through their own label 'Best of the Best'. Following on from 2012's 'Tough Love', recent single and opener 'Hot Squash' has already impressed the likes of Zane Lowe, while 'Lizzard Baby' was honoured with Radio 1's Track of the Day. Recorded in Leeds with the help of Matt Peel, who has also worked with Leeds' most recent success story Eagulls, 'Blood' is a leap forward in terms of breadth of vision, with the band citing cinematic influences such as Paul Thomas Anderson's film The Master.
