Cannibal Ox
The Cold Vein (Deluxe Edition)

Cannibal Ox were a hip-hop collective made up from Vast Aire, Vordul Mega and producer El-P. Justifiably highly acclaimed at the time of its original release in 2001 by the likes of Pitchfork. The music website correctly predicted that The Cold Vein would appear on many end of year lists. This is hip-hop from the dark side and it’s essential!

Chuck Berry
Back In The U.S.A. / Memphis Tennessee

The name of Chess Records looms large in the annals of popular music history. In its mid-Century heyday the Chicago label released more blues, rock ‘n’ roll and r ‘n’ b classics than this Norman Records™ blurb writer has had hot dinners. Now Jack White’s Third Man Records have gained access to the Chess archives in order to reissue some of the choicest morsels - and there are few more lip-smacking than Chuck Berry’s ‘Back In The U.S.A.’.

Czarface
Dog Days Of Tomorrow

East Coast rap’s long-standing fascination with the world of comics bears yet more fruit in Czarface’s lavish Dog Days Of Tomorrow. For their latest trick the union of Boston hard-heads 7L and Esoteric with Wu-Tang’s Inspectah Deck drop a 7” record and a comic book in which they team up with another famous mug in Ghostface Killah to fight some such evil. While Dog Days Of Tomorrow serves as a warm-up for a collaborative LP between the two parties this package is lavish enough to be copped on its own merit.

David Axelrod
Earth Rot

Earth Rot was the third album by composer David Axelrod. It was also the final part of his Capitol trilogy which included Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience. It was originally released in 1970 and bemoans the state of the environment in L.A. at the time. This reissue is a 2LP version which adds an instrumental version of the original choral LP, a request Axelrod made before his death in 2017. Limited edition 2LP, includes 28 page booklet on Now-Again.

Gloria Ann Taylor
Deep Inside You

Apparently one of those records which goes for silly money online, a reissue is now available to your wallet’s relief of this classic soul number Deep Inside You by Gloria Ann Taylor. It’s a soulful, jazzy piece which oozes class. Unfortunately for us her music career was cut short by her quitting, but there's still plenty to enjoy. Like this!

Herbie Hancock
Flood

Flood is a double live LP by jazz/funk genius Herbie Hancock. It was recorded in Tokyo in 1975 where he was was backed by his band The Headhunters. The album features versions of tracks from his 1973 classic Head Hunters, 1974’s Thrust and also sees him previewing tracks from his, at the time, forthcoming LP, Man-child which was released toward the end of 1975. Flood has never been released on vinyl before. Limited edition 2LP set on Get On Down.

Howlin' Wolf
How Many More Years / Moanin' At Midnight

Doesn’t more pivotal than this. Essential early single from blues pioneer Howlin’ Wolf. Later replicated with uncanny ability by Captain Beefheart - a feat attempted by many others - the mighty Howlin’ Wolf’s rasping voice remains one of the most distinguishable of the entire blues genre. This 7” is the latest in a Chess Records/Thrid Man records partnership, and captures just how singular to the core Howlin’ Wolf was as an artist.    

Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats
Rocket 88 / Come Back Where You Belong

Third Man Records have partnered with the seminal Chess for a series of limited-edish reissues. This makes sense - Chess has been called ‘America’s greatest blues label’, and Third Man is a label out of time. Some claim that Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats’ 1951 split ‘Rocket “88”’/’Come Back Where You Belong’ is Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Year Zero.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 1

Jack White’s Third Man Records project reaches its logical conclusion with a set of John Lee Hooker reissues. Originally released in 1973, Detroit And Beyond Vol. 1 collects some of the famed bluesman’s earliest recordings. Many of these tracks were cut at a studio but a stone's throw away from where the Third Man store now resides.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 2

Third Man Records reissue two volumes of early John Lee Hooker recordings. The Detroit And Beyond records originally emerged in the early 1970's but actually date from much earlier in Hooker’s career. Given their age it's no surprise that these dusty old blues ditties have had a remastering job for this release - done from the original tapes, no less.

Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers
Down To Kill – Complete Live At The Speakeasy

There he goes, old Johnny Thunders. Jabbing his finger. Thrashing his guitar. Cooking his … never mind. The old reprobate was at his iconoclastic best one night in March 1977 at London’s Speakeasy. With his Heartbreakers in tow the former New York Dolls man sang a few tunes and mercilessly bated his audience. Down To Kill - Live At The Speakeasy became one of the more infamous live LPs in rock history after its initial release in 1982, but some extra recordings from the gig were discovered a few years ago. As such, this new Complete version runs to fifteen tracks as opposed to the original’s ten.

Kev Brown
Minneapolis

Prolific producer Kev Brown turns his attention to the sounds of Minneapolis on his latest LP. The Minnesota city is best-known as the home of Prince, and Brown certainly injects a nice wedge of The Artist Formerly Known As's raunchy funk into these post-Dilla instrumentals. We challenge you to not shake your hips to these party-starting joints. This one's a Black Friday edish.

Murcof
Martes + Utopia

Murcof’s 2002 debut album Martes has become vanishingly rare since that initial release, a great shame for serious Murcof-heads, but also for those yet to hear this powerful brew of clicks’n’cuts and melodic materials. This reissue on The Leaf Label presents the original record, plus the following Utopia EP and some lesser-heard rarities from the era. 3LPs plus a CD of Martes!

Ofege
The Last Of The Origins

Nigerian rockers Ofege get another of their classic LPs reissued on Tidal Waves Music. 1976’s The Last Of The Origins built on the success of their debut album Try And Love, fusing psych-rock grooves with Lagos funk fire in a manner reminiscent of their heroes BLO and The Funkees. This one’s been pretty rare up until now - indeed, this is the first time the record has been put on wax since the ‘70s.

Orchestra Di Enrico Simonetti
Blue Frog…and Others

If the doubtless bulging ‘Instrumental-Orchestral Funk’ section of your shelf still lacks this never-before-reissued 1975 suite, it’s time to make space, ‘cause here it is repressed at last. Distinguished Italian composer Enrico Simonetti (father of also-distinguished composer and Goblin prog-rocker Claudio) led these inventive, melodic and funky invocations of animal sounds including the titular amphibian… and others.

Pride
Pride

Highly influential recorder, producer and composer David Axelrod teamed up with offspring Michael for this rather obscure project. Nooney Rickett’s mournful voice dances over Axelrod & Son Ltd.’s arrangements of faintly Latin-tinged, 1970s West-coast psych; all elegantly sun-baked, throat-parched and artfully dreary.

Robert Johnson
Cross Road Blues / Ramblin' On My Mind

Robert Johnson is credited with laying down the blueprint that modern blues was built from. His influence can be seen in many blues players since such as Muddy Waters, Elmore James and Eric Clapton. Cross Road Blues and Ramblin’ On were recorded in 1936 and are featured together on this limited edition 10” single.

Smashing Pumpkins
SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT, VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO SUN.

The Smashing Pumpkins are so excited about the release of their brand new album that they’ve given it two or three titles! Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. (didn’t I tell you?) is the first Smashing Pumpkins album for four years, and it notably features founder members like James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin for the first time this millenium. Released by Napalm Records.

Various
A-Square (Of Course)

King Of The Hill Mr. Jack White loves nothing more than a bit of ol’ timey garage rock. Indeed, reissuing lost records by ancient Midwestern proto-punks is probably the thing that drags him into the Third Man Records office every morning. As such, he’s probably loving every minute of A-Square (Of Course). This one’s a compilation LP of Detroit scuzz-rock focussed on the city’s influential A-Square Records. MC5 are on here. A young Iggy Pop plays drums and does the vox for The Prime Movers.
