Latest reissues

Tom Waits
Mule Variations

Mule Variations, whilst being typical of Tom Waits later work -- mixing experimental sounds, stomping percussion, jazz and beautiful songwriting, is also a high watermark in his career. Notable tracks include the mournful ballad "Georgia Lee", the creepy and original "What’s He Building In There?" and the gravel-edged blues of "Chocolate Jesus". Essential 180g Vinyl reissue on Anti.

Waxahatchee
Cerulean Salt

Waxahatchee re-emerges as a full on indie rock star on Cerulean Salt, crafting songs with small flourishes and delicate melodies that work around a proper band structure. The same emotions of relationship grief resonate as did on the sparse American Weekend, but this record shows a maturer and more precise songwriter.

Eric B & Rakim
I Know You Got Soul

I Know You Got Soul was one of the funkier cuts from Eric B and Rakim’s seminal 1987 album, Paid In Full. It was released as their third single and contains a sample from Bobby Bird’s hit of the same name, which was produced by James Brown, no less. This was, in turn, sampled by M|A|A|R|S for their song Pump Up The Volume.

Placebo
Placebo

Apparently, if you listen to Placebo you don’t actually feel the effects of their music, be they visceral or cerebral, you just think you do. Or perhaps if you turn it up loud enough, you will. Their eponymous debut album originally landed in 1996 and featured some androgynous alt. rock bangers such as Nancy Boy, Come Home and Teenage Angst. It is now reissued on vinyl for you delectation and reappraisal.

Boris
Feedbacker

'Feedbacker' is Japanese experimental metal band Boris’ masterpiece, encompassing one song divided into five distinct movements. The piece shape-shifts from drone metal to psychedelia, bleeding into stoner metal and glorious noise where even the percussion distorts! ‘Feedbacker’ is a record which perfectly highlights Boris’ chameleonic tendencies, making it an essential record for fans of post-metal, psych rock, drone and noise rock.

Tom Waits
The Heart Of Saturday Night

The second Tom Waits album is still in relatively earnest singer-songwriter territory, but with an extra injection of jazz into the mix. It’s the work of an artist still trying to define his identity, but coming out with plenty of impressive songs in the meantime. Diamonds On My Windshield wears the beatnik influence on its dashboard, while you can imagine Bruce Springsteen taking notes on the title track.

Collective Soul
Collective Soul (Deluxe 25th Anniversary Edition)

Collective Soul come from Stockbridge, Georgia. They formed in 1992 and back then fused sound de jour - grunge with southern rock and soul. Their self-titled album was their second, released in 1995, and was a real unit shifter, going triple platinum. Here we a 25th anniversary available on CD and  its first ever vinyl pressing. Includes the Singles December, The World I Know and Where The River Flows.

Carmine Coppola
The Outsiders (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Celebrated film director, Frances Ford Coppola adapted S.E, Hinton’s 1967 bildungsroman novel The Outsiders as a film in 1983. The cast was full of fresh faced youngsters who would go on to make it big: Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Ralph Machio, Patrick Swayze etc. The score was composed by his dad, Carmine Coppola. An epic soundtrack with nods to the golden age of cinema was the result. There was also the song Stay Gold, co-written by Stevie Wonder. Here we have a beautiful, limited edition 2LP blue and orange vinyl version for you to love.

Dr. Alimantado
Best Dressed Chicken In Town

Not Jeremy Corbyn as depicted by the always-on-cue social media team at the Conservative party but classic sessions from 1978 where the good doctor collaborated with a host of household names in the reggae and dub would including Lee Perry, King Tubby, Horace Andy and Gregory Isaacs. Brilliant freeform sessions that became the first ever release on Greensleeves I'll have you know. Now re-issued on Alimanoto's own Keyman Records.  

Evan Parker
Monoceros

One of the most brilliant displays of the circular breathing technique in its application to the saxophone, British jazz musician Evan Parker sees his 1978 LP Monoceros re-issued on vinyl via Treader. Recorded with direct-cut technology, it’s a dazzling album of solo soprano sax improvisations.

Belle and Sebastian
Tigermilk

Belle & Sebastian released their first record, 'Tigermilk', way back in 1996, when indie pop was fresh and new and barely a teenager. It's the start of a long songwriting career for Stuart Murdoch, who was the only songwriter for the band at this point, and shows off soft, delicately made songs that hadn't quite become fanciful and twee yet. Also, the album artwork is really something, huh?

Talking Heads
Remain in Light

Relentlessly innovative classic from new-wave legends Talking Heads. ‘Remain In Light’ is the peak of their Brian Eno produced era, with spliced up lyrics pared against extensive experimentation with loops and polyrhythms. These experiments have stood up remarkably well over the passage of time, the songs here remaining as jerky and unpredictable as ever.

Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd’s 1975 album Wish You Were Here followed up the mega-selling Dark Side Of The Moon, a tricky task that the band approached with lengthy instrumentals and some heavily cynical lyrics: excellent. This new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package. Released by the band’s own Pink Floyd Records.

David Bowie
David Bowie aka Space Oddity

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Here is Bowie’s second album under his stage name, released in 1969. Along with early folk-Bowie, it also provides the first glimmers of the genius that was soon to arise. 2015 remastered versions.

Television
Marquee Moon

Television were integral to the New York punk scene of the 1970s that centred around the CBGBs club situated in Manhattan’s dingy Lower East Side. Whilst the music was more complex, with longer songs than the punk movement was known for, it is said that front man Tom Verlaine was the person who started wearing safety pins on his clothes, but simply to hold them together, rather than as a fashion statement. Their debut album from 1977, Marquee Moon, is absolutely essential.

Scott Walker
Tilt

Contrary to what it may seem, ‘Tilt’ was not a complete shift in trajectory for the former pop star Scott Walker. Prior to its release in 1995, Walker had spent years finding ever more oblique methods to communicate his ideas, however, is undoubtedly true that ‘Tilt’ was his most daringly realised attempt yet. Desolate, ardently experimental, but also beautiful, a pathway which would lead to later opuses such ‘The Drift’, ‘Bish Bosch’, and ‘Soused’ - his collaborative LP with drone metal legends Sunn o))) .

Scott Walker
Til The Band Comes In

'Til The Band Comes In' was Scott Walker's sixth record, originally released in 1970 and consisting of two distinct sides: on the first, Walker gives us a bunch of new solo material, while on the flip there are covers on covers. While Walker started as a renowned pop crooner with a baritone and a lot of melodrama, 'Til The Band Comes In' has hints of the artist who would eventually stop all that easy listening and go hard with the avant-garde.

The La's
BBC In Session

Imagine if someone could find some new material from the La's? The world would explode. Instead we have to be content with the same set of songs played slightly differently in ancient sessions and recordings. Originally released in 2006, this is a collection of the band's performances on radio shows hosted by the likes of Janice Long, Liz Kershaw, Bob Harris, and Nicky Campbell.

Serginho Meriti
Bons Momentos

Time Capsule prevent a re-issue of one of the seminal examples of Brazilian funk and soul Serginho Meriti's debut Bons Momentos. It was released on Polydor in the early '80s and forged a new sound take on the Black Rio sound blending a funky rhythm section with samba sounds, in vogue synths and vocals which take something from the Fela Kuti blueprint. Long a favourite on the collectors circuit, this is a must for fans of Brazilian music.  

The Verve
Urban Hymns

20 years since this much loved album which spawned a handful of classic hits such as 'Bittersweet Symphony', 'The Drugs Don't Work' and 'Lucky Man' was issued and...you guessed it...it's time for the lavish remastered version in a series of formats including a super 6LP or 5CD box set with acres of live tracks and B sides. 

Weezer
Weezer (Blue Album)

Weezer burst onto the scene with their debut self-titled album, known as The Blue Album, in 1994. Their brighter take on grunge - adding pop melodies to loud guitars was a perfect mix for the mid-90s. And if that’s your kinda thing then this album is packed with tune after tune. Includes the singles Buddy Holly and the rather Pavementy Undone (The Sweater Song).

The Rolling Stones
Beggars Banquet

Beggars Banquet by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1968 and was the first in a run of four brilliant albums: Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street followed. Beggars Banquet was the last to feature Brian Jones, but due to increasing drug use didn’t play on the whole album. Contains the classics Sympathy For The Devil and Street Fighting Man.

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded liner notes, photos, alternate versions, and remixes from the likes of Kuedo and Teklife.

Sonic Youth
Dirty

Sonic Youth's seventh album 'Dirty' was released in 1992 at the height of the grunge movements powers. The NY noise rockers were one of the most influential to the muddy rock scene, so it made sense they'd soak up a heap of influences from the groups they were touring with at the time. 'Dirty' is packed full of catchy alternative rock tunes, complete with their avant-rock guitar theatrics and super-cool vocal deliveries of Kim, Thurston and Lee. Some will say this is 'pop' Sonic Youth, but the tunes like 'Sugar Kane', '100%', 'JC' and 'Youth Against Fascism' make this irresistible record an ideal starting point into Sonic Youth's unique take on guitar music.

The Rolling Stones
Exile on Main St.

The Rolling Stones took themselves off to the French Riviera to record their classic double LP Exile On Main Street. This could well be the album from which all the stories of excess associated with rock stars stem from. But let’s not let that overshadow the music. Since it’s release in 1972, Exile On Main Street has been a bona fide rock ‘n’ roll classic.

The La's
The La's

Oh those poor the La's. Just imagine the internet meltdown if they ever decided to release another note of music. As it is we have to make do with their debut and only album being re-issued over and over and over again. It is of course a brilliant record despite what Lee Mavers thinks and here it is once again on 180g vinyl with download code.

Queens Of The Stone Age
Songs For The Deaf

A long-deserved vinyl edition for Queens Of The Stone Age’s commercial breakthrough record, 2002’s Songs For The Deaf, particularly for its original red background and black graphics artwork. After the critical adoration heaped upon 2000’s Rated R, Josh Homme and co. hired Dave Grohl to deliver his trademark powerhouse drumming, resulting in one of the most admired straight-out rock albums of the Noughties.

Depeche Mode
Violator

It would have been impossible to predict when watching them as children on Top of the Pops doing "New Life" that Depeche Mode would become enormous stadium fillers with success in that massive place we call the United States of America. 'Violator' is the one that sent them completely overground and contains forever classics like 'Personal Jesus' and the surely never to be surpassed pop brilliance of 'Enjoy the Silence'.

Interpol
Turn On The Bright Lights

The formidable debut from Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights, which turns 15 this year. In that early-2000s city environment, the New York post-punk revivalists dished out generous helpings of gloom, brooding vocals and those headily dark basslines that we’re still enjoying now. LP or CD on Matador.

Ulrich Schnauss
A Strangely Isolated Place

We certainly need some music that screams "don't worry, everything is going to be ok" with big soothing synths and comforting bass lines right now. One answer could be to revisit Ulrich Shnauss's back catalogue which often melds Boards of Canada-style electronics with towering melodies. A Strangely Isolated Place was his second album and since Schnauss has the rights to his back catalogue back, he's doing the decent thing and re-issuing them.  

Explosions In The Sky
The Rescue (Anniversary Edition)

Recorded quickly in 2005 and inspired by an incident on tour when the band’s van broke down, necessitating an eight-day stay in an attic waiting for it to be repaired, Explosions In The Sky’s fourth effort has always been something of a missing piece to many fans, never being commercially available anywhere after its limited mail-order release. That’s all changed now, with this first-ever vinyl issue.

Brainiac
Hissing Prigs In Static Couture

With their career tragically cut short due to the death of vocalist/guitarist Tim Taylor in 1997, Brainiac’s third record (and first for seminal indie imprint Touch & Go) Hissing Prigs In Static Couture ended up being their valedictorian effort. Highly acclaimed for its intelligent, noisy take on contemporary indie, this ‘blue swirl’ vinyl re-issue is the perfect memento for this sadly unexplored dead-end in American alternative rock.

Califone
Roomsound

A 15 year anniversary reissue of the 2001 album by Califone. Mixing up blues and country with a lo-fi, recorded out in the barn feel. Stomping blues licks and slides, dusty tape saturation, and subtle manipulations that bring a texture to the whole. Sound like Six Organs of Admittance playing quiet, reflective blues.

that dog.
Totally Crushed Out

That Dog were a ‘90s alternative rock band fronted by Anna Waronker and featured Petra and Rachel Hayden - two thirds of The Hayden Triplets. Totally Crushed Out! was their second album, originally released in 1995. It’s a concept album about young love. Features the single He’s Kissing Christian and their uncharacteristic 7 minute epic, Rockstar.

that dog.
Retreat From The Sun

That Dog were one of those ‘90s bands who never quite hit the big time despite support slots with the likes of Weezer, Counting Crows and Blur. It’s certainly not down to lack of talent or good songs, either. They were led by Anna Waronker and featured two of the very talented Hayden Triplets in their ranks at various times. Retreat From The Sun was their third album, originally released in ‘97 and features guest spots from Waronker’s husband, Steve McDonald of Redd Kross, Charlotte Caffey from The Go-Go’s and Tanya Hayden - the other Hayden triplet.

Martin Solis
Martin Solis & Los Primos

Martin Solis was born in Texas in 1929. He made conjunto music - a Tex-Mex, or tejano, hybrid of sounds made up from accordion and the Mexican 12-string bass known as bajo sexto. He holds the prestige of being inducted into the tejano music hall of fame but he never released any recordings in his lifetime. Los Primos were the band he formed in the late ‘50s with his Saxophonist cousin Willy Huron. Martin Solis & Los Primos is the first ever LP of his music, and we have Third Man Records to thank for bringing it to us.

Pyramid Pieces 1: Modal & Eco Jazz From Australia 1969 - 1979

Pyramid Pieces 1: Modal & Eco Jazz From Australia 1969 - 1979 is a six-track compilation exploring an overlooked decade in Australian jazz, an isolated scene that’s never properly been documented. Includes six rare pieces of modal, spiritual and 'eco jazz' from the likes of Jazz Co-Op, Galapogos Duck and The Alan Lee Quartet.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Music from the Motion Picture)

Fear, Loathing and Full-Frontal Snogging in Las Vegas is a book by Louise Re… Wait, what? This book isn’t in that series? It’s actually called Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and was written by Hunter S. Thompson? Well blow me - now you’re telling me they made a FILM of it as well?! And that film has an absolutely stonking soundtrack that includes music by Tom Jones, Jefferson Airplane and the Dead Kennedy’s?! My whole life has been a lie. Pass me another peyote plant, I think I need to go and lie down...

The Rolling Stones
Goats Head Soup

The last truly worthwhile album they recorded before they quickly collapsed into self-parody, The Rolling Stones’ 1973 record Goats Head Soup gets the deluxe re-issue treatment. Available as regular and box-set editions in LP and CD form, the bigger packages feature rarities, alternative mixes and a live recording from Brussels, plus three previously unreleased including one featuring Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page (‘Scarlet’). The final word on one of the Stones’ less well-celebrated masterpieces.

The Durutti Column
The Return Of The Durutti Column

It's fun to imagine the naming sessions for the 1980 debut LP from dream-pop pioneers The Durutti Column. “What are we going to call our first album then? Something that really messes with them. ‘In The Court Of The Crimson Durutti Column’? ‘Remain In Durutti Column’? ‘The Durutti Column Two; Electric Boogaloo’?” “How about ‘The Return Of The Durutti Column’?” “Yeah, I guess that'll do…” Given that the Mancunian group made some of the least abrasive music released by Factory Records, it's slightly incongruous that this should be the Factory album with the famous sandpaper sleeve. Fortunately for those of you who don't want large swathes of your vinyl collection destroyed from within, this new edition of ‘The Return Of The Durutti Column’ opts for a less problematic sandpaper insert. The halcyon musings of the tracks within remain unchanged.

John Carpenter
Dark Star - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Dark Star was the first feature film that John Carpenter directed: he also, naturally, provided the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of synthy bleeps, bloops and tones. This reissue on we release whatever the fuck we want comes as a 12” with the OST and a 7” featuring an Alan Howarth rework and a locked groove of sound effects.

Haruomi Hosono
Hosono House

The Haruomi Hosono reissue train rolls on with a new pressing of his 1973 debut solo LP courtesy of Light In The Attic. For Hosono House the Yellow Magic Orchestra architect claims to have been going for a Music From Big Pink kind of thing, and the plethora of steady rockin’ grooves testify to that. However, this being HH, there is an element of cerebral surreality that lends the record an odd charm.

Boris
Akuma No Uta

Never fear - although they may share a name with our troublesome and idiotic prime minister, Boris are excellent, combining ultra-heavy riffing with thunderous percussion ever since they came into being in 1992. Third Man Records re-issues their 2003 album, Akuma No Uta, to collide with a brand new American tour.

Jamie T
Panic Prevention

As 2006 turned into 2007 people were coming to terms with the fact that The Libertines weren’t getting back together any time soon, The Streets would never make another album as good as Original Pirate Material again and Lily Allen was now a thing. Enter Jamie T and his debut LP Panic Prevention, an LP that saw the cheeky Londoner serving a sound that kind of amalgamated all the above and threw in a dash of Billy Bragg's earthy people’s-poet pizzaz for good measure. Hits like ‘Sheila’ and ‘If You Got The Money’ ensured that Jamie Alexander Treays would be a fixture of festival lineups for many years to come.

So we're all re-pressing 7's now? Melody Day was taken from Caribou's 2007 era album Andorra and showcases his swirly psychedelic approach to music making. An added bonus is that old chum Four Tet pops up with a remix on the B side and Adem (remember him?) appears on vocals. All very good but...do we need this?

The Slits
Cut

It is 40 years since the Slits unleashed Cut their debut and most well known album. Their early ferocious live performances were reigned in expertly by producer Dennis Bovell and the band tempered their DIY punk enthusiasm with dub and world music influences. The result is an innovative album which matches Ari Up's yelps with Viv Albertine's scratchy discordant guitar runs and Budgie's off kilter dub-influenced drumming. It influenced... well.. everyone particularly the later riot grrl and DIY punk scenes.

Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Groundbreaking stuff here from Brian Eno. Ambient 1: Music For Airports was released in 1978 and marks the first time when the word ‘ambient’ was used in connection with this kind of music. Eno made the album by layering tape loops. His intention was to make a soundscape that would cut through anxieties and tension in an airport. Half-speed master. Cut at 45 rpm on heavyweight vinyl.

D'Angelo

Voodoo by D’Angelo is regarded by many as the first great album of the new millennium. It was released shortly after 1999 had rolled into 2000. It features a crack-team of R&B musicians who were able to look into each others eyes as they played live. Voodoo is inspired equally by his children, his childhood home in Virginia and ground-breaking black musicians such as Sly Stone, George Clinton, Jimi Hendrix and Al Green.

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.

Miles Davis
Bitches Brew

'Bitches Brew' is a jazz standard living outside of jazz standards, believed to be one of the best ever made. '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.

The Charlatans
Between 10th & 11th (Expanded Edition)

Between 10th & 11th is the second album by The Charlatans. It was originally released in 1992. Here we have an expanded reissue on clear vinyl and CD. You get the original album plus the highly sought after live show dubbed 'Isolation 21.2.91' which was recorded in Chicago. Includes the singles Weirdo, Tremolo Song and I Don’t Want To See The Sights.

The Charlatans
Melting Pot

A long overdue repress of the greatest hits album covering the earlier career of the Madchester survivors who weren't from Manchester. This has pretty much all the essential tracks from the years 1990 to 1997 when the Charlatans were signed to Beggars Banquet. Including indie disco staples, 'The Only One I Know' and 'Just When Your Thinking Things Over', a remix from the Chemical Brothers of 'Patrol' and lesser known gems like 'Can't Get Out Of Bed'. Double vinyl press.

Nightmares On Wax
Smokers Delight (25th Anniversary Edition)

Released at the height of the music press’s fascination with ‘trip-hop’, George Evelyn’s second Nightmares On Wax album Smokers Delight gets a lavish 25th anniversary re-issue, a minor masterpiece that passed under the radar in commercial terms back in ‘95 but which remains a cult classic to this day.

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

In 1988 The Fall, in collaboration with the Michael Clark Company, staged an experimental ballet about William of Orange's ascension to the throne. Mark E Smith and co. handled the music side of things and the ensuing album was christened I Am Kurious Oranj. Reissued by Beggars Banquet to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary.

Cranes
Population Four

Released as their fourth album back in 1997, Population Four saw British dream-pop act Cranes undergo a significant change in personnel. The departure of bassist Matt Cope saw most of the rest of the band switch instruments. The result was arguably the most conventional Cranes record up to that point, but no less beguiling. Now available for the first time on wax, pressed up in blue-and-white swirled vinyls.

Includes three B-sides, two extra tracks, a welter of demos and live versions and a 5,000 word essay on the album by Cranberries archivist Eoin Devereux.

King Crimson
Larks' Tongues In Aspic (alt takes/mixes)

As part of Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson's long term re-badge of the King Crimson back catalogue comes the alternate takes version of their legendary Lark's Tongue In Aspic album originally released in 1973. These versions were only previously available on a CD/DVD and later a vinyl box set so this is their debut appearance as a separate vinyl release.

Klaus Doldinger
Das Boot (Die Original Filmmusik)

The original soundtrack to Wolfgang Peterson's German war film Das Boot gets a vinyl re-issue courtesy of the always busy Music On Vinyl imprint. Klaus Doldinger's work became notable when it was sampled by German ravers U96 on an international hit in 1991. You can now get the original film music on 180g 'camouflage' coloured vinyl (they don't miss a trick do they?)

Vangelis
Beaubourg

Beauborg was Vangelis' sixth studio album and was originally released in 1978. It counts as probably his most impressionistic and abstract work. Inspired by an area around the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Vangelis wrote the music in about a month. It's anti-commercial sound at first was jarring for fans of his work but over the years it has gained traction perhaps for its anti-commercial stance.

The Dukes of Stratosphear
Psonic Psunspot

The Dukes of Stratosphear were a 60s psychedelic pop group who released two albums. 'Psonic Psunspot', their second, was released in 1987... Wait a minute, something's not quite right. These Dukes were actually the side-project of art-punks XTC who managed to not only be convincing, but also very, very good. A whole lot of fun.

Miles Kane
Colour Of The Trap

Would it be fair to label Miles Kane as a sort of Andrew Ridgeley to Alex Turner's George Michael? Kind of. The twosome are celebrity mates, featuring on each others albums but Kane lacks much of Turner's...well.. talent. Still Colour of the Trap shows that Kane can make albums with more life to them than Ridgeley's despairing Son of Albert being a blend of psych and Brit-pop with guest spots from Noel Gallagher, Gruff Rhys and...yes... Alex Turner.

Madlib
Shades Of Blue

A lovely album where prime beat maker Madlib was given the run of the Blue Note catalogue and was pretty much told 'do what you like'. Which as you might possibly be able to imagine was to use old sounds to create new and exciting shapes. Here, Madlib reworks sounds by the likes of Donald Byrd and Horace Silver to stunning effect. A true hip-hop visionary.

The House Of Love
She Paints Words In Red

Although the 2014 era version of the House of Love was sonically very unlike the original band there are still plenty of merits in what they produced. The sound was a bright, melodic form of indie with plenty of nods to the Velvet Underground. She Paints Words In Red is the second post reformation album and it is a right toe tapper.

King Crimson
In The Wake Of Poseidon (remix)

In the years before Robert Fripp spent his days cavorting alongside wife Toyah Wilcox on a series of legend destroying lockdown videos, he was working with fellow prog head Steven Wilson on a long term project to remix some of his legendary King Crimson work. It has seen the light of day on a CD/DVD and vinyl box set but this is the first time they have been released on vinyl as limited albums. Here is 1970's In The Wake Of Poseidon in a limited edition of 2000 copies.

Kevin Ayers - John Cale - Eno - Nico
June 1, 1974

Some A&R guy at Island Records suggested that Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Eno and Nico, a real bunch of musical mavericks, get together for a gig in an attempt to promote Island as a rock label. All four artists had recently signed with the label and had released, or were about to release, their own albums. It happened, as the title suggests, on June 1, 1974. The album features some key performances from Cale, Eno and Nico on side one, whilst side two is entirely performed by Kevin Ayers. As an additional garnish to the already stellar cast, Mike Oldfield plays bass and Robert Wyatt plays drums. Limited edition reissue of 1000 copies on Island.

King Crimson
Red (remix)

Red by King Crimson was originally released in 1974. It is their seventh album. In 2009 Crimson main man Robert Fripp and prog enthusiast and musician Steven Wilson set about remastering the band’s back catalogue for CD. Fans have been dying to see these on vinyl so a vinyl box set was released in 2018, now they're being released as stand alone albums. Red is one of King Crimson’s best albums, and with the prog-metal crunch of the title track and the beautiful Starless being two highlights it’s easy to see why. It's the final album of a trilogy that also featured Larks' Tongues in Aspic and Starless & Bible Black.

Tangerine Dream
Destination Berlin

The title reflecting the thoughts of a million electronic music producers. In fact Destination Berlin was the 1989 album from synth legends Tangerine Dream and a soundtrack to the movie of the same name. It is a rare sight of the upbeat poppy side of Tangerine Dream featuring jaunty sunny side up vignettes. Not a doom laden chord in sight. Transparent blue vinyl re-issue on Music On Vinyl.

Queens Of The Stone Age
Lullabies To Paralyze

Queens Of The Stone Age have been making their rambunctious tuneful desert rock for nearly twenty years. Lullabies To Paralyze was their third album originally released in 2005 and has guest spots from the likes of Jack Black, Shirley Manson and most aptly of all a ZZ Top Gibbons. This is a luxury re-issue in gatefold sleeve and comes with three bonus tracks.

Misfits
Walk Among Us

The Misfits inspired thousands of groups with this record. Their debut album 'Walk Among Us' merged B-movie horror imagery with early forms of hardcore punk, shaping a breakneck album of nightmarish yet hugely fun proportions. It features classic songs such as 'Astro Zombies', 'Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?' and the fan-favourite single 'Night of the Living Dead'. The Misfits aren't just a logo to slap on T-shirts after all...

Harry Beckett
Joy Unlimited

A vinyl re-issue for Joy Unlimited, the 1975 album from Barbadian-born trumpeter Harry Beckett. Since his passing ten years ago, Beckett’s music has become highly sought-after. Boasting some wonderful drum breaks amid some exceptional Latin / Caribbean fusions, it’s one of the best records of his impressive career. 

Tommy Mandel
Music For Insomniacs

Tommy Mandel’s main job was playing keyboards in Bryan Adams backing band. You’ve got to earn a living somehow, I guess. His real passion was for making esoteric synth music. Music For Insomniacs is an album-worth of such music, originally released on a private press cassette in 1984. Each track takes inspiration from waves of sleep. If you enjoy the work of Mort Garson, Woo, Brian Bennett, Angelo Badalamenti, Klaus Schonning or Bruce Haack then this is for you.

Placebo
Meds

Placebo released Meds in 2006, immediately making a big impact on self-consciously alternative youths. As their fifth album, Meds is the sound of a band who have mastered their own style: singles like ‘Because I Want You’ are super-efficient pieces of Placebo power.

The House Of Love
The House Of Love

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's time once again to delve back into the House of Love's self titled debut which remains a high water mark of their career. In 2012 we got a 3CD set but now Cherry Red have managed to swell it out to a 5CD set with even more non album, session and live tracks. But it's the original album you need which has also been spread over a double LP for maximum impact. 

Jerry Goldsmith
Chinatown (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Roman Polanski’s 1974 Chinatown is now rightfully recognised as a masterwork of noir cinema. But the importance of Jerry Goldsmith’s evocative and atmospheric soundtrack is still not fully appreciated. That all changes with this remastered gold vinyl LP from Cinemax. So stare at the beautiful poster art included with the vinyl and remember, ‘Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.’

Razorcuts
Storyteller

A deluxe re-issue of Storyteller, the debut album from short-lived London-based indie band Razorcuts. Originally released in 1988 on Creation, it’s a lean and taut 35-minute collection that put them streets ahead of their competitors at the time. Now, it gets a re-issue with a bonus eight-track album and in-depth sleeve notes.

Townes Van Zandt
Townes Van Zandt (50th Anniversary Edition)

This self-titled album was actually Townes Van Zandt's third album but includes re-recordings for four songs from his debut as Van Zandt was unhappy with the earlier production. Alongside Our Mother the Mountain it contains some of his best and most enduring work and includes future classics such as For the Sake of the Song.

Tom Waits
Closing Time

Closing Time was where it all began for Tom Waits, arguably the greatest cult artist in the history of popular music. Released in 1973, Waits didn’t yet possess his legendarily gruff vocal delivery, his approach more honeyed and traditional on immortal tracks like ‘Ol’ 55’ and the aching ‘Martha’. 

BOB
Convenience

First released in 1989 and placing highly in John Peel’s Festive Fifty was indie classic ‘Convenience’ by BOB. It now gets a 30th anniversary re-issue on coloured 7” vinyl (the customer will get a randomly chosen red, amber or green disc) with a postcard, sticker and poster via the Optic Sevens re-issue series, backed with previously unreleased track 'Coquette'.

The Wee Cherubs
Dreaming

Optic Nerve have caught somewhat of a wave with these 7" pressings of 80's indie-pop classics and obscurities. This one falls somewhat into the latter bracket being the early musings of Martin Cotter who went onto be in psychedelic crazies the Bachelor Pad. Expect two slabs of Scottish indie pop with nods to (who else?) Orange Juice.

Bob Mould
Silver Age

Bob Mould, the Husker Du and Sugar guy, has generally always been a guitar man but prior to the release of his 10th solo album the Silver Age had been dabbling in electronics. For fans of Mould and his big fat guitar sound, the Silver Age was a welcome return to the driving alternative rock he'd been best known for. It now gets a heavyweight silver vinyl re-issue on Demon.

Devotion was our second drift intro the world of Beach House. The Baltimore duo had already gained a healthy fanbase for their self titled debut and this one did more of the same thankfully. It contains eleven slo-mo pop moments full of reverb drenched organs and slide guitar. A perfect dream date for fans of Mazzy Star, Galaxie 500 or Mojave 3.

Everything Is Borrowed was the Streets fourth album and saw a return to form for the band after The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living which was the first the Streets album to get a mixed reception on release. Instead Everything Is Borrowed concentrated on positive vibes and feel good anthems reflected in the fact that a lot of its tracks have been played on their 2018 and 2019 greatest hits tours.

Pink Floyd

As literally one of the best-selling albums of all time (741 consecutive weeks in the charts!), you probably already have a copy of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon don’t you? But this new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package with a few extra bits. Revisit 1973 in luxury. Released by the band’s own Pink Floyd Records.

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.

Kate Bush
Hounds Of Love

Hounds Of Love is one of those LPs that you can end up skipping over because you feel like you already know it too well. In particular ‘Running Up That Hill’, ‘Cloudbusting’ and the title track are all old friends at this point. But here’s the thing - as frequently as you might hear its famous singles (or their famous covers), as often as it might crop up in retrospective lists and talking heads documentaries, Kate Bush's fifth studio album will never get old. It's just too good.

Super Furry Animals
Guerrilla

Super Furry Animals third album Guerilla is 20 years old. To celebrate its birthday we have an expanded reissue of the original album which includes a huge 25 bonus tracks. This was the album with the singles Northern Lites and Fire In My Heart, the latter being the one of the band’s more tender moments.

Kraftwerk
Tour de France

Tour De France was a 2003 album by Kraftwerk made to celebrate the centenary of the bicycle race of the same name. It contains a brand new version of their 1983 single of the same name as well as a host of other compositions. The track was initially made due to the bands increasing interest in cycling prompted by Ralf Hutter. The new version and accompanying album form part of the last 'new' material heard from the band to date.   

Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures

Debut album by Salford post-punkers Joy Division. Recorded in April 1979, Martin Hannet's unique production techniques and Ian Curtis's doomed lyrics and monotone vocal lend the album a downbeat greatness that has been often emulated yet rarely surpassed. One of only two albums recorded by the band before Curtis's tragic suicide in 1980. 

David Bowie
Hunky Dory

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Hunky Dory is Bowie’s 1971 triumph, containing several of his most immortal songs, including ‘Changes’ and ‘Life on Mars?’. Remastered in 2015.

Black Sabbath
Paranoid

Paranoid was the second album by influential british hard rock band Black Sabbath. It was originally released in 1970. It is notable for containing some of the band’s most famous tracks such as War Pigs, Iron Man and the title track which also reached the top spot in the singles charts back when you needed to shift a few units to do so.

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!

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

This is a much needed re-issue of the second album from David Roback and Hope Sandoval's dream pop/slowcore band. Originally released in 1993 this contained their superhit 'Fade Into You' which peaked at no 44 in the hot 100. One of those albums that gained momentum this is a fine addition to their small but perfectly formed set of records,

Joni Mitchell

Shine is Joni Mitchell’s 19th and, to date, last album. It was originally released in 2007. We’re lucky to have had this album out of her as she had announced her retirement from the music business in 2002. It features an updated version of her 1970 hit Big Yellow Taxi and fellow singer / songwriter James Taylor guests, playing guitar on the title track. The opening track 'One Week Last Summer' won a Grammy, too.

Nick Drake
Pink Moon

Pretty much one of the most beautiful albums ever made. Just Nick, his ever fluid guitar playing, husky voice and on one track, a slither of piano. Listen to it late at night, on the headphones and admire the wonderful natural way the album was recorded. The songs are exquisite, odd at times, soothing at others. To me, the best Nick Drake album more because what isn't on it than what is.
