The Beatles
The Beatles (White Album)

The Beatles. Now there's a thing.  The White Album (initially known as just the Beatles) was the blueprint of what became known as 'the classic over indulgent double album that would have made a great single LP'. It was released 50 years ago today and still much of it sounds like Guided By Voices 'August By Cake'. This super duper re-issue isn't just a rehash of the original thing with posh packaging  - it contains the Esher demos  - a 27 track 'unplugged' demo that has only been heard by the most in the know the Beatles fans.

The Coral
The Coral

When Liverpudlians the Coral first burst onto the scene we were promised something like a cross between the La's and Captain Beefheart. The reality was somewhat more prosaic but their psychedelic take on the guitar pop of the era was more colourful and explorative than their peers. Their self-titled debut was a sea-faring classic gaining them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and a large following that has stuck by them to this day.   

Sonic Youth
Goo

1990’s Goo was considered to be Sonic Youth's most accessible album to date: it does, after all, contain the popular tunes ‘Dirty Boots’ and ‘Kool Thing’, virtually pop hits for Sonic Youth and it was their first for a major label.  Still, they kept their underground credentials with the classic sleeve art from Raymond Pettibon!

Jóhann Jóhannsson
IBM 1401, A User's Manual

The late Johann Johannsson did a great many great things over the course of his career. Among them was this album, one of the most emotionally intense records with one of the most emotionally detached titles. IBM 1401, A User’s Manual pays tribute to the composer’s father using recordings of the titular computer and some seriously luscious and emotive string arrangements. A modern classic.

Camera Obscura
My Maudlin Career

My Maudlin Career was the fourth (and to date penultimate) album by Scottish pop people Camera Obscura originally released in 2009.  Their cinematic Northern Soul-influenced indie-pop has only gained traction in the intervening years and following the tragic death of founding member Carey Lander, the band have tentatively started to play shows again. What better time then for a re-issue.

John Hiatt
Crossing Muddy Waters

Among New West's reissues of studio albums from American singer-songwriter John Hiatt is 2000’s much-acclaimed ‘Crossing Muddy Waters’. Indebted to the legendary bluesman in the title, this is an entirely acoustic album with no drumming in sight. This is the album which introduced bluegrass elements into Hiatt’s sound for the first time.

Graeme Miller & Steve Shill
The Moomins: Winter Wunderland Edition

People of a certain age love the Moomins. It was the quaint Swedish children's television show about a gang of woodland creatures who looked something like hippopotamuses. Weirdly, the evocative, dreamy music was made in Leeds by a couple of punk-era musicians Graeme Miller & Steve Shill and Finders Keepers have already issued the soundtrack on vinyl to the joy of middle-aged dads everywhere. This version is a Winter Wunderland Edition which, without the benefit of further information, we presume is the same soundtrack in more 'wintery' sleeve art.

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.

Robbie Basho
Song of the Avatars: The Lost Master Tapes

American guitarist Robbie Basho was influenced by Indian and European classical music, emulating the playing style of a sarod on a twelve-string guitar using open tunings and then blending that sound with US folk and blues. He was a contemporary of virtuoso guitarists John Fahey and Leo Kottke. ‘Song of the Avatars: The Lost Master Tapes’ is a five-CD collection of recently=discovered lost works recorded between 1965 and 1985. Basho passed away in 1986.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland

Hendrix on 180 gram! Yes, you heard correctly. This double LP vinyl package has been lovingly put together by the Voodoo Chile's down at Legacy. You don't want to get stuck in Cross Town Traffic and miss this one. You don't need even need to go All Along The Watch Tower, but you do need to snap it up quickly. It's Jimi, it's Electric Ladyland - what more can I say baby?

Bonobo
Black Sands (10th Anniversary Edition)

Simon Green aka Bonobo has become one of the most sought-after DJs and producers in the last decade or so. It all pretty much started with his critically-acclaimed 2010 opus 'Black Sands'. The album's success was down to its blending lush, emotional instrumentation with influences from bass-heavy UK electronic music. For this tenth anniversary reissue Green has taken a new cover shot ... which tries to recapture the original.

Cocteau Twins
Victorialand

‘Lazy Calm’. ‘Fluffy Tufts’. ‘Little Spacey’. Yep, we’re in Cocteau Twins territory alright - specifically the territory of ‘Victorialand’, the dream-pop pioneers’ fourth LP which originally emerged in 1986. ‘Victorialand’ was made while Simon Raymonde was busy mucking about with This Mortal Coil, and the result is an album which retreats even further into the ether than previous Cocteau full-lengths. Some might even call it a milestone in ambient pop...

The Cribs
Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever

We are ten years on from the release of The Cribs’ album Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever: can you believe it? Wichita can, and that’s why they are reissuing it now, remedying the record’s out-of-print status at last. One of the finer albums to emerge from the indie explosion of the time, this slice of Cribs still sounds special today. LP reissue.

John Hiatt
The Tiki Bar Is Open

New West reissues four studio albums from American singer-songwriter John Hiatt as stand-alone LPs for the first time, including 2001’s ‘The Tiki Bar Is Open’. A sturdy collection of heartland rock from a phase in which he solidified his dedicated fanbase, 'The Tiki Bar Is Open' was Hiatt’s final album with Vanguard Records before he began his association with New West.

John Hiatt & The Goners
Beneath This Gruff Exterior

John Hiatt's 2003 LP ‘Beneath This Gruff Exterior’ was his first LP for the New West label and the first which credited his backing band The Goners front-and-centre. A consistent and polished collection of well-written rock, it contains all of the key characteristics of Hiatt’s work - bluesy rock I guess?

These New Puritans
Hidden [MMXX]

Domino marks the tenth anniversary of These New Puritans’ stunning second album ‘Hidden’ with an expanded reissue. ‘Hidden [MMXX]’ features a second disc of unreleased tracks and live recordings from the time, plus a live film. A decade on, the album is an enduring testament to Jack and George Barnett’s singular vision, a visceral collection of futurist chamber-pop that’s both menacing and beautiful. Influenced everything from Night Slugs to David Bowie, did this.

Fela Kuti
Afrodisiac

Nigerian afrobeat king Fela Kuti is known for having a huge catalogue, but over the years many of his albums have been nigh-on forgotten. The Knitting Factory label are working to change that now, individually reissuing a selection of albums for the first time on vinyl. Afrodisiac features the track ‘Alu Jon Jonki Jon’, which is an amazing jam even by Fela’s high high standards.

Chicco
Shigomase / Koshana

The Rush Hour label presents two highly sought-after gems from South Africa’s fertile late-Eighties house music scene, both of which come courtesy of Chicco. On the A-side, ‘Shigomase’ is an Afrobeat-inspired track whose controversial lyrics caught the attention of South Africa’s oppressive censorship regime, while the flip-side jam ‘Koshana’ is a slice of neon electro-house with a pop sensibility.

Steve Roach
Quiet Music 3

American ambient / electronic / new age composer Steve Roach recorded three albums based around synths, flute and electric piano known as Quiet Music between 1983 and 1986. Each album in the series has a different reason for existence and Quiet Music 3 was intended to aid his personal healing rituals. Originally released on cassette in 1986, this is the first time it has appeared on vinyl.

Larry Heard
Sceneries Not Songs, Volume One

The point at which Larry Heard’s (AKA Mr. Fingers) 1994 classic Sceneries Not Songs Volume 1 was made possible when he managed to perfectly combine jazz, deep ambience and his famed Chicago house sound. In doing so, he made an album for lovers of both house and R&B. Released as a double vinyl LP for the first time, it includes a bonus track that was only previously available on CD.

Leila
Like Weather

Released on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex imprint in 1998, the debut album from Leila divided opinion at the time of release - perhaps because it was made by a woman, and the IDM scene in the late-90s was very male-dominated. Painstakingly remastered by Rashad Becker, the immersive and intricate ‘Like Weather’ gets the reappraisal it’s long deserved. Just like the first thousand copies of the OG pressing, this edition of 'Like Weather' includes a bonus 7”.

Mr Flagio
Take A Chance

Top Italo disco classic alert! Robotic vocals and fat bassline with a spacey disco pop vibe, this is a seminal track which is widely regarded as the cream of the cream of Italo. The B-Side features an instrumental version of the track. Originally released on the Squish label back in 1981 and produced by Flavio Vidulich, Giorgio Bacco.

Talking Heads
77

Not the title of a late period Adele record but the debut album from fidgety New Yorkers Talking Heads. It introduced the world to their distinctive strum 'n' yelp sound coming across as something like the Modern Lovers on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Contains their early hit Psycho Killer famously parodied in the Fools 'hilarious' Psycho Chicken.

New Order
Temptation

There have been other songs called 'Temptation' but the New Order one is surely the best. Released as a standalone single in 1982 it was the first music the band produced themselves. On this re-issue we get the full 12" version along with the full version of B side 'Hurt'. Both track have been remastered and 'Temptation' still sounds as thrilling and visceral as it did in 1982.

Talking Heads
Fear of Music

Nowadays 1979’s ‘Fear Of Music’ is largely remembered as the Talking Heads album with ‘Life During Wartime’ and ‘Heaven’ on it - probably something to do with the fact that they are the only two songs from the record that made it into 1984’s ‘Stop Making Sense’ (though ‘Cities’ was included in the extended version of the film). This legacy does ‘Fear Of Music’ a great disservice - sure, those are both absolutely top tracks, but the whole album really is a triumph of the airless agit-funk style that the group had lasered in on throughout 1977’s ‘77’ and 1978’s ‘More Songs About Buildings And Food’. It also bridged the gap between those LPs and the transcendent polyrhythms of 1980's ‘Remain In Light’. This is Talking Heads at their most frantic, paranoid and couched, an effect heightened by Brian Eno’s daring production. The frenzied ecstasies of ‘I Zimbra’, ‘Animals’, ‘Memories Can't Wait’ etc. are pretty much unparalleled in the post-punk era.

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.

Love
Forever Changes (MONO)

Forever Changes by Love was one of a number of classic and highly original albums that were released in 1967. Led by Arthur Lee, the band were hampered by drugs and failing relationships, but the difficult atmosphere seems to have been the right one in which to make a classic. Apparently Neil Young was penciled in to produce the album, but the job fell to Bruce Botnik instead, turns out he did a decent job.

Heart Of The Congos is one of the all-time classics, and surely one of the most highly regarded roots reggae records around. This right here is a reissue of a reissue, putting the fullest and best version of the album back into circulation. Over three CDs or three LPs, the rare Lee Perry original mix is bolstered with edits, dubs and remixed versions, including one previously unreleased! Reissued by VP.

Skinny Puppy
Remission

As well as the fact that cEvin key found a unique and innovative way of spelling Kevin, Skinny Puppy were musically innovative too fusing bits of new wave, techno and film noir into a sample based industrial racket. This is their debut missive and has now been re-unleashed on vinyl for the first time in 25 years.

Joni Mitchell
Early Joni – 1963

Early Joni - 1963 is an album of Joni Mitchell’s earliest known recordings from a session at a radio station in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, her hometown. Joni Mitchell was just 19 at the time, so it serves as a valuable document of a nascent talent who became one of the world’s greatest songwriters. Features a new self-portrait and liner notes by radio station DJ Barry Bowman.

D'Angelo
Voodoo

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.

Justice
† (Cross)

Justice's debut is as big and brash as any electronic album this side of Daft Punk. Opting for stadium-sized pop hits and sample heavy electro-house tunes, '†' was hugely successful on the radio and in the indie music press alike. It features the chart smashing songs 'D.A.N.C.E.', 'DVNO', 'Stress' and 'Waters Of Nazareth'. They don't make them like this anymore.

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The final album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before. Absolutely essential.

Ah 'Blue Lines'. That time hip-hop, reggae, R&B, and soul all together under the mysterious cinematic umbrella of Massive Attack. The first time their special blend of breakbeats, sampling and rapping was heard and it's presence is still being felt 25+ years on. The usual guests are in place, Horace Andy, Tricky, Neneh Cherry and of course Shara Nelson on the stone cold classic 'Unfinished Sympathy'.

'Gone Glimmering' was their debut album and was released in 1995. It was produced by John Agnello, Bryce Goggin and Bob Weston, who between them have made records with Dinosaur Jr., Pavement and Sebadoh - so that’s the kinda territory you’re getting into here.

African Head Charge
In Pursuit Of Shashamane Land

In Pursuit Of Shashamane Land was the last album, released in 1993, that African Head Charge released on On-U Sound for a while. The Psychedelic dub ensemble who have included the likes of Jah Wobble in their ranks introduced elements of trance and electronica into the the dub-backed chants of their 1990 classic, Songs Of Praise.

Mosca
Done Me Wrong / Bax

Repressed on green vinyl for its (sort of) tenth anniversary, Sheffield-based producer Mosca’s 2011 underground smash ‘Bax’ is back. That track, based around its infectious melody and that infamous “my DJ is live in the place” sample, is accompanied by UK garage-indebted banger ‘Done Me Wrong’ - a tune which features an absolutely iconic moment where Mosca builds a wheel-up *into* the mix. The fact that I've done write-ups on both this and a tenth birthday edition of Mount Kimbie's 'Crooks And Lovers' today makes me feel absolutely ancient - what I wouldn't give to be three cans of warm, flat Red Stripe deep in a half-full club on a Wednesday night, listening to one of my mates from the student radio station do a shonky blend of 'Bax' and Jamie xx's 'Far Nearer' ...

The Last
Look Again

Recorded in 1980 but never formally released (there are a handful of test-pressings that now fetch eye-watering amounts), ‘Look Again’ is the album by seminal L.A. punks The Last which would have succeeded their excellent debut ‘L.A. Explosion!’. Forty years after it was taped, 'Look Again' now gets reissued via House Arrest with a bonus 7” vinyl including tracks ‘Weekend Girl’ and ‘Fade To Black’.

Seventh Tree was the fourth album by English duo Goldfrapp and was a move away from the glitterball pop and disco they had previously peddled. It is a much more folky affair with a bucolic English feel topped off by Alison Goldfrapp's soaring vocals. Long out of print on vinyl, this is part of a series of Goldfrapp re-issues on coloured vinyl.

The Lemonheads
Lovey

Lovey was the Lemonheads fourth album and their first for Atlantic. It was the first album that really showcased their songwriting talents and is full of lovely plaintive pop such as Half the Time, Stove and Ride With Me. It was their final album with founding member Jesse Peretz as the Lemonheads became purely Evan Dando's thing thereafter.

The Raveonettes
Chain Gang Of Love

'Chain Gang of Love' was the first time the world was introduced to Danish duo The Raveonettes. It caused quite a splash back in 2003 as their short, sharp garage rock attack landed them in the hallowed pages of the NME and other publication desperate for more minimal punk rock to champion alongside The White Stripes etc. The Raveonettes had a habit of writing entire albums in a certain key  - this time it is the turn of B flat major. Re-issue on Music On Vinyl.

Some tracks are B-sides and others taken from studio-recorded acclaimed album 'Teenager of the Year' (1994). A glimpse into a three-year window of 'what might have beens' and what now is.

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.

Gene
Libertine

'Libertine' was the final album by Britpop collective Gene. The band were most well-known for taking on the sound previously championed by the Smiths, and although they painstakingly removed some elements of originality and passion from the template Gene have arguably aged much better due to boasting a singer who hasn't become a kind of musical Jim Davidson in the intervening years. This is a 2xLP reissue on Demon.

The first album they made since changing their name from The Outsiders, and was recorded entirely at Adam Borland’s parents house. If you’re into Joy Division or even Interpol this is a must.

Hideto Sasaki

There’s a lot of Japanese jazz being reissued at the moment, and to back up my claim, this is the 6th Japanese jazz reissue on BBE. This one features Hideto Sasaki, Toshiyuki Sekine Quartet +1 playing their acoustic hard-bop classic, Stop Over, from 1976. If you can imagine Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers powered by recreational chemicals, then you’d be close to imagining the sound in these grooves.

Gene

'Drawn To The Deep End' was the second studio album by Gene. It was originally released in 1997. The record contained the singles 'Fighting Fit', 'Speak To Me Someone' and 'Where Are They Now'. 'Drawn To The Deep End' is a charge of raw Britpop emotion delivered in Martin Rossiter’s Morrissey-esque vocal stylings.

It opens with the relatively poppy single 'As Good As It Gets' and also includes the single 'Fill Her Up'. Reissue LP on Demon.

Jose Prates / Miecio Askanasy
Tam... Tam... Tam...

Prior to this vinyl LP reissue, Jose Prates and Miecio Askanasy’s 1958 Brazilian jazz record had the inauspicious reputation of being both of landmark importance and staggeringly rare at the same time. Luckily, Trunk records have decided to get it back in print. Fittingly for a record Gilles Peterson said he’d pay £1000 for, it’s an incomparable mixture of jazz, funk and bossa nova.

Wu-Tang Clan
Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

Do you want me to introduce this record to you? Really? Because if you don’t yet know what happens when you Enter The Wu Tang, you should probably just buy this on sight. For existing Wu-Tang Clan fans, this is the classic debut reissued, pretty crucial for your collection.

Amy Winehouse
Frank

Frank was the debut album by Amy Winehouse. She made a massive impact with this upon its release in 2003. Firstly as a major new talent had just unleashed itself on the world and secondly because her lyrics didn’t pull any punches, hence the title. The title is also a nod to one of her heroes, Frank Sinatra.

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers
Buhaina's Delight

Buhaina's Delight is Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers classic album from 1963. The album featured Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller, Cedar Walton and Jymie Merrit completing Blakey’s band - a stellar cast that has become known as the ultimate Jazz Messengers line up. The album focused on shorter songs and featured a version of Moon River.

SWANS
White Light from the Mouth of Infinity

Swans’ seventh studio album, White Light from the Mouth of Infinity, is considered to mark the start of the group’s second stage. Here their uncompromising and abrasive post-punk music became uncompromising and abrasive post-punk music with complex arrangements and diverse instrumentation. This essential release has been remastered for double vinyl LP and also contains a poster and download code.

Fela Kuti
Zombie

Fela Kuti is known for having a huge catalogue, but over the years many of his albums have been nigh-on forgotten. The title track of Zombie is an acknowledged Fela classic, but the album as a whole hasn’t been available as a stand-alone vinyl since the original release. Mmmm, tasty political afrobeat.... LP on Knitting Factory.

Bert Jansch
Avocet (Expanded Anniversary Edition)

A luxury re-issue of what some regard to be Bert Jansch's best work. Avocet was initially released in 1979 and is a gorgeous instrumental album inspired by British birds. It shifts his brilliant, twisting guitar playing away from traditional folk and more towards a kind of proto neo-classical sound. This 40th anniversary edition comes with bonus tracks and writings by collaborator Danny Thompson.

The Fall
Perverted By Language

Perverted By Language was the Fall's sixth album and the first to feature Brix Smith in any capacity. Mark E Smith's former wife was instrumental in the later smoothing out of their post-punk clank but at this stage it is still a challenging listen. There's plenty of classic the Fall moments here though from legendary longform opener Eat Y'self Fitter to the magnificently taut guitar entanglements of I Feel Voxish.

Biosphere
Substrata

Fans of isolationist ambient music have reason to rejoice as Substrata, widely regarded to be an ambient classic, is reissued on double 180gr vinyl and CD. Linking the slow moving, icy soundscapes of Thomas Köner with the distant rhythms of Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2, the album has become a significant source of inspiration for a new generation of ambient producers and those seeking musical experiences on the fringes of consciousness.

Germs
M.I.A. (The Complete Anthology)

A first-ever release on vinyl for M.I.A. (The Complete Anthology), a full career retrospective of influential punk act Germs. Originally released in 1993 on CD only, Porterhouse Records replicates the compilation in its entirety, right down to the original liner notes, making for a fitting tribute to this influential first-wave punk outfit.

Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' is a masterpiece of stoner and doom metal. The Dorset group take Black Sabbath's slow-and-low template and run all the way down the psychedelic rabbit hole and straight into the gates of hell with it. The ridiculously low-tuned guitars are steeped in devilish herb smoke and thick layers of fuzzed-out fog, whilst their wall-of-sound riffs lumber with monolithic intensity alongside mammoth percussion which fall like asteroids hitting earth. Jus Oborn’s funereal vocals sound as if he was caught within a bad trip, augmenting the demonic album with a shade of psychedelic brilliance.⁣ 'Dopethrone' is the perfect marriage of doom, sludge, stoner and psychedelic rock and is an essential in any collection. The album art depicting an intoxicated Lucifer pretty much sums up the record!

Bruno Nicolai

Black Sabbath
Vol 4 (Super Deluxe)

‘Vol. 4’ by Black Sabbath was originally released in 1972. It's an album which saw the heavy metal pioneers slug out some chugging licks in the form of the LP’s only single ‘Tomorrow’s Dream’ and the riff-tastic ‘Supernaut’ alongside the ballad ‘Changes’. This ‘Super Deluxe’ version comes as a five-LP or four-CD set and includes outtakes remixed for this release by Steven Wilson, a live recording form the 1973 ‘Vol.4’ tour and fascinating snippets of studio dialogue. Essential for fans of heavy metal and classic rock.

Yung Lean
Unknown Memory

Melancholic hip-hop with a leftfield twist from eighteen year old Yung Lean. Debut album Unknown Memory blends off-kilter autotuning and sombre synths, all wrapped up in a distinctly digital aesthetic that could have only come out of the Youtube generation. Dark as a Swedish winter.

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records.

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 they subsequently disappeared down a rabbit warren of their own making is, in time, starting to be forgotten.

Jan Garbarek
Places

Reissue of Nowegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek’s Places. Originally released in 1978. High regarded as one of his best, Places is stark and isolated with Garbarek’s sax floating in a distant drone of organ chords, and percussion you barely notice coming into the forefront. Features Bill Connors (guitar), John Taylor (organ, piano), and Jack DeJohnette (drums).

The Heshoo Beshoo Group
Armitage Road

A highly prized collector’s item since it was originally released back in 1970, Armitage Road was the sole studio recording from The Heshoo Beshoo Group. A critique of the apartheid regime in their native South Africa set to an inventive fusion of American and African jazz traditions, it now gets hugely overdue re-issue on vinyl via We Are Busy Bodies.

Bellowhead
Hedonism

Literally no social distancing at all on that sleeve, though this album was made in 2010, when the world was a dazzling golden thing and we had little idea of what was to come. Certainly with an eleven-piece line up it was hard for Bellowhead to stay apart from each other at shows, and it was this - alongside their ace musicianship - which helped 'Hedonism' become the highest-selling independent folk album of all time. This tenth-anniversary reissue comes on red and black marble vinyl with liner notes from each member of the band.

Boards of Canada
Hi Scores

We’re always here for Boards Of Canada, and Hi Scores is a release that really shows off why that is. As only the duo’s second release, this 1996 number dates from when people where only just waking up to the BOC sound, and yet it contains such infinite wonders as ‘Turquoise Hexagon Sun’ and the deeply melancholy ‘Everything You Do Is A Balloon’. 2014 reissue edition.

The Durutti Column
Obey The Time

Factory Benelux could probably be re-issuing the Durutti Column records until the end of time if they so wished. This time it's the turn of their 8th album Obey the Time. The album saw leader Vini Reilly explore electronic textures influenced by the acid house explosion of the time. There's an extra disc of live recordings from a show at Whitworth Hall in 1990.

Mew
And The Glass Handed Kites (Expanded)

The Danish band who straddle arena rock and indie pop once released this really great record called 'And The Glass Handed Kites', and it was dreamy: it veered towards the prog side of alt-rock but swung mostly with its heart. Reissued for its 15th anniversary and expanded to include ten additional tracks.

Hole
Celebrity Skin

Celebrity Skin was the third album from Courtney Love and Hole. Their previous album Live Through This had left behind the racket of debut Pretty on the Inside forging a more radio-friendly sound. Four years later Celebrity Skin edged further into the mainstream with a streamlined set of tuneful Californian guitar rock highlighted by the lovely the Lemonheads -ish twang of Malibu and the chart topping title track.

The Modern Lovers
Live

Led by Lou Reed-fanboy supreme Jonathan Richman, The Modern Lovers were and still are renowned for their upbeat summer rock sounds. Live sees the band play perhaps their sweetest songs, with generally unworried and happy songs. Great summer sounds to lend your night that stylish vintage edge.

Catherine Wheel
Ferment

Coming in at a solid no 23 in Pitchfork's Top Shoegaze albums, Music on Vinyl have had the good sense to issue Catherine Wheel's now classic 'Ferment' on vinyl. It contains several despatches of noisy shoegaze which is clear cut and rocky rather than woozy. Perhaps closer to Ride than anything else the band used thrashy guitars to create great thumping melodies to leap around your house to when the baby is asleep.

Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass
Passages

Two essential legends of different genres, united! Philip Glass is the face of contemporary minimalist composition, and Ravi Shankar is one of the most widely Western-known composers of Indian classical music. Wow! Passages, their 1990 collaboration, is a remarkably successful melding, all spiralling melody and stately texture. Reissue on Music On Vinyl.

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. 

Julee Cruise
Floating Into The Night

Reissue of Julee Cruise’s debut album, from 1989. Cruise is of course a muse of David Lynch, who, along with his long-term co-conspirator Angelo Badalamenti, produced and wrote the album. Most notably contains ‘Falling’, the theme song to a certain TV show those two were involved in, can’t quite place it...

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.

Portishead
Portishead

Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures. It's an intimate and occasionally frightening listen full of regret and pathos between the grooves.

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

Brian Eno’s specifically-titled Ambient series of albums culminated in Ambient 4: On Land, a particularly dense and somewhat dark listen, miles away from the bright emptiness of Ambient 1. Jon Hassell, Daniel Lanois and Bill Laswell were involved in helping Eno achieve this (still) strange and evocative expanse. Virgin reissue.

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray.
