David Bowie
Glastonbury 2000

It's almost hard to fathom almost 20 years on that David Bowie's hair was so long and luxurious at his show at Glastonbury in 2000.

Public Image Limited
The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that the...view item »


The Doors
The Singles

The Go Betweens
Right Here

An Australian writer once described the Go Betweens as not only a great band but the sort of band with characters and personalities you could gossip about as if they were the cast of Neighbours.

Beggars Banquet (50th Anniversary Edition)

Beggars Banquet was the first in a run of four classic albums made by The Rolling Stones between 1968 and 1972 where they took their blues roots and fused them with hard rock, country and gospel to create a, well, Stonesy sound that has been copied, but never bettered, by so many bands since. Under the guidance of producer Jimmy...view item »


The Rutles
The Rutles

The Rutles started life as a Beatles pastiche band. They were formed by Neil Innes of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. This self-titled LP was their first album, released in 1978, and was also the soundtrack to their film All You Ne...view item »

Confessin' The Blues - Compiled by The Rolling Stones

As if to prove this theory the Rolling Stones (no less) have compiled this exhaustive collection of all their favourite blues people and includes tracks by pio...view item »
