Hope all is well… Exciting couple of weeks in the shop to be honest and with plenty of obair but that’s all good… We had MICK FLANNERY for a social distanced gig last Thursday night and it was smashing… My first taste of live music since the start of March.. One of the things missing in folk’s lives that read this newsletter (music)… Some of Mick’s crew were in and around the shop one the last week and it’s only when you hear their stories first hand and how their working lives have been completely turned upside down, you truly grasp the gravity of their situation… I know I am preaching to the converted here a bit as I know most of ye support record shops, labels, bands, artists, venues, gigs etc, but I for one have been making a conscious effort to try and support our sector… Songs From An Empty Room was another great event to help shine a light on the unsung heroes of the industry… Let’s do our best folks.. Mick’s ‘Alive‘ album will help support his own band and crew.. If you want a copy give us a nod… Even if you want a copy for someone for Christmas, give us a nod… Lecture over… Apologies!!!
We got some savage news yesterday with the announcement that the mighty BIFFY CLYRO are doing a virtual in-store with us on Tuesday August 18th 2020 at 6:30PM.. Pre-Order the new Biffy album ‘A Celebration Of Endings’ from us for access to a once off, private virtual Zoom in-store with them.. Numbers are limited on this, it’s a lovely thing for us as a shop to be involved with.. So thanks to Biffy, their management and Warner for putting the pieces together.. Bobby here is a huge fan of the band as I know a few of ye out there are also… This is remote intimacy at it’s most intimate… The lads will play a few songs and there will be a live chat with fans.. Ah sure if you are a fan of the band, it’s as sweet as a nut… If a music fan in general, it’s a lovely, bespoke thing to do… For the price of an album.. Sure where would you be going like.. Bob has the links to buy the album and to get your unique code for the in-store…
BIFFY CLYRO – A CELEBRATION OF ENDINGS
A little Bob note added in… I have gone to see Biffy over 10 times live, one of the only bands I would travel abroad to see.. Hands down one of the best live bands around today, and this should be a treat. My first ever gig was seeing them in the Olympia in 2009, and the most recent was headlining Indiependence last year (great to have the boys back on our doorstep!). 10 years and i’ve never seen the lads put on anything less than an amazing show.. Truly an honour to be involved with this, hosting virtually my own favourite band! So again a massive thanks to the band, management and Warner for making this happen!
Back to the bossman!
Ah Ray boy… I’m reading for the last 3 minutes and wondering if there’s any releases for this Friday July 31st??… Is there what kid?!!!
It’s here… Really excited to hear this in it’s entirety… Can’t wait… Yes, FONTAINES D.C. ‘A Hero’s Death’ is finally here… It seems like July 31st was ages away… 3 Vinyl formats and one CD format... Last 24 hours to enter competition for the signed test pressing.. Draw is going to be Thursday Evening at 5:00PM, Bobby and Shane will do it live in the shop… Nine sweet runners up prizes also… Prizes of beautiful signed prints… So pre-order on site or drop us an aul’ email before 5:00PM Thursday… Best of luck… I’d be afraid to put a value on the signed test pressing to be honest, the band are on fire… Best of luck and I hope you are one of 10 winners!!! I do have a good few bespoke F.D.C. postcards to be given out on a first come purchase, first served basis also… No breaking my balls on this lads, first come first served… 10AM Friday morning, 31st July, TOUGHER TOWERS…. Sorry TOGHER TOWERS…. Don’t email and ask me to keep postcards… I have quite a few… Please don’t break my heart over them though.. Please… FONTAINES is here Friday!!! Thanks again to the band and the label for the fab prizes!!
And one more special bit of news on the Fontaines D.C. release. Anyone who has pre-ordered the album with us already will be sent a link to a very special album release show ‘A Night At Montrose’ on Monday 3rd of August at 8PM. We’ll get you out a link to the show if you have pre-ordered already, and anyone who pre-orders in the meantime will be sent a link also. All details on this has been added to the four formats of the album :
Or finally if you go to the Fontaines D.C. website and sign up for their mailing list, you’ll be sent a link. Deadline to sign up to the band’s mailing list to receive an invite is 12pm BST on the 3rd August.
Right, also this Friday is the PAUL MCCARTNEY reissues, deluxe of ‘Flaming Pie’ on various formats… This Friday we also have BOBBIE GENTRY’s magical ‘Delta Sweete‘ with a bonus 10 tracks on both formats, and we have MAX RICHTER ‘Voices’, new ones from CREEPER, THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS, and ALANIS MORRISETTE.. Reissues this week also from BELLE AND SEBASTIAN, THE BELOVED, and we should also have that great LLOYD COLE AND THE COMMOTIONS vinyl boxset.. Sorry, THE CORONAS new album is due out also on Friday…
Right so moving on to the 7th of August so and on the new album front we we will have the brand new album by DEEP PURPLE ‘Whoosh!’, PIXIES ‘Bossanova’ 30th Anniversary Red Vinyl Edition, JASON MOLINA’s ‘Eight Gates’, CEELO GREEN has a new album, there is a 4LP Ultimate Collection boxset by BLACK SABBATH, and a reissue of JOE BONAMASSA’s ‘A New Day Now’, with vocals redone.. Sony for next friday week the 7th of August have FLEETWOOD MAC’s ‘Before The Beginning Vol. 2 : Live and Demo Versions’ vinyl.. This is Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac really.. Peter Green rest in peace sir.. You had an incredibly creative yet somewhat tragic life in some ways… Immensely talented musician, some great Fleetwood Mac albums.. ‘Then Play On’ my own favourite.. I think he admitted himself that he just took too much drugs and it seriously affected his mental health, some might say that the young bands today aren’t taking enough drugs… Sorry did I say that out loud… Anyway, R.I.P Mr. Peter Green..
I missed a plug.. I know ye find that hard to believe… I nearly can’t believe it myself.. But a couple of nice ones, really nice ones, out on the 7th of August I may have failed to mention up to now… Planxty’s ‘After The Break’ and ‘The Woman I Loved So Well’, as well as BELL X1’s ‘Neither Am I’ are all getting reissued on vinyl.. There are some NEIL DIAMOND reissues on vinyl out for the 7th of August also..
The Orchard for the 7th have THE STOOGES ‘Live at Goose Lake’ Vinyl..

Right some nice releases announced in the past week include a new ANGEL OLSEN album, debut solo album from COREY TAYLOR of Slipknot / Stone Sour, a new FLEETWOOD MAC Boxset on 8CD or 4LP + 7”, a SLADE ‘Cum On Feel The Hitz’ 2LP or 2CD Best Of, a ROBERT PLANT 2CD Solo Career Collection, a new KYLIE album.

RUMER, FANTASTIC NEGRO, BRUCE HORNSBY, KATE RUSBY (CD only for now) and LEVELLERS... Which has four or five physical formats… PIAS have a release for the 14th of August by BILLY NOMATS.. She is only one the scene in the last 6 or 9 months i’d say… Could be like the LATE LATE SHOW.. Love or hate… She definitely has a few things to say and they may not all be exactly politically correct… I’ll let you make up your own minds on Billy Nomates.. Sleaford Mods are in her corner..
Also out on the 14th of August are some CHRISTY MOORE Vinyl reissues ‘Live in Dublin’ and ‘Iron Behind The Velvet’ and there are a couple of CLANNAD albums being repressed on vinyl ‘Crain Ull’ and ‘Fuaim‘, the only two Clannad albums that featured Enya… There is also a BILL FRISELL reissue on CD and LP of ‘Valentine’, JOHN WILLIAMS ‘Live in Vienna 2LP’, MAX RICHTER reissue of ‘Waltz With Bashir’, a CREEDENCE Half Speed Master of ‘Cosmo’s Factory’ and the ENO BROTHER’s ‘Luminous’ on indies only vinyl... 14th of August also sees a print of BRITNEY SPEARS ‘Oops I Did It Again’..

Sin é for this week folks,
Thanks for listening
Ray, Bobby + Shane
Tougher Towers . Ie
Hope everyone is keeping well.. I forgot toe mention the RSD thing last week… I will be placing my orders over the next week so if any wish lists… Fire it over.. So it’s time for this week’s ad… Releases hitting the shop floor this Friday the 10th of July are new albums by LAURA MARLING, THE STREETS, MARGO PRICE, THE JAYHAWKS, GLASS ANIMALS, PRVIS, THE DMA’S, and RUFUS WAINWRIGHT… Reissues also out by REO SPEEDWAGON and THE GRATEFUL DEAD…. Not a bad week release wise, the summer is normally very quiet on the release front but this year has probably been the most bizarre year most of us have seen.. Full summer release schedule…
Shop is open now Monday to Saturday.. So just closed on Sundays.. It should be on a platforms folks… ‘Platforms’… That’s the word for it isn’t it?? ‘Platforms’…
Bob’s here on vinyl next week, on Friday the 17th of July.. Great demand for the record.. Great to report that demand also.. Indies only olive green vinyl (just 7k of these).. Ye might think i’m like the boy that cried wolf.. But passing on the information.. 7k of the indies one pressed.. 300 copies of the Prince ‘Sign O The Times’ peach vinyl coming into Ireland.. Less of the sets.. And Sufjan indies vinyl is sold out 3 months before release… Dylan’s Dylan like, end of story.. Have not immersed myself in it yet.. I’m hearing great things from the folks who say they are not normally into Dylan, but the fans / diehards are quieter about the record.. Each for our own judgement I suppose… ‘Murder Most Foul’ is class in my opinion…
Sony for the 17th aside from the Dylan vinyl release have the new DIXIE CHICKS album and DEPECHE MODE’s ‘Violator’ 12” Singles Boxset.. FIONA APPLE’s ‘Fetch The Bolt Cutters’ is moved to July 24th now..
Warner for the 17th of July have the beautiful reissue / 40th Anniversary Remastered also of JOY DIVISION’s ‘Closer’ album on Crystal Clear vinyl.. As well as that Warner are reissuing 3 classic 12” singles, ‘Transmission‘, ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, and ‘Atmosphere‘. Only 1k of each of the singles…
Warner also have a new album from PRETENDERS ‘Hate For Sale’ on CD or LP as well as LIANNA LA HAVAS’ new album also.. We have a few indies only coloured vinyl due in…
Cargo have the debut record by Dublin 5-piece SILVERBACKS… I like this… Also out on the 17th of July..
One I forgot and meant to mention last week is the LLOYD COLE AND THE COMMOTIONS ‘Collected Recordings 1983-1989 6LP Vinyl Boxset with a book, limited to 1000 copies worldwide.. Lloyd wrote a nice few words about the release… Here tis… €190 is out best price
In 2014 Universal Music Group approached me with the idea of producing a ‘Complete Lloyd Cole and the Commotions’ box set. It was eventually released in 2015, in CD format only. I asked, I strongly suggested that a vinyl version be released but UMG were not interested. Enter Tapete Records. It’s taken a while, but it’s here.
6 LPs and a book, in a box.
All three studio albums are included, all three are re-mastered, Abbey Road studios creating the masters for UMG, and Skyline Tonfabrik fine tuning for vinyl. Many thanks to Kai Blankenberg for his patience. It took a while for me to be satisfied, but I’m very happy now. We did very little to Mainstream other than adjust level. Bob Ludwig’s original work was near perfect and still sounds great almost 30 years later. The original ½” mixdowns of Easy Pieces could not be used as the tape had disintegrated and baking, etc could not save it. We worked from the ¼” back up (made the same day as the ½” for this very reason) and to my ears the album is significantly improved. The big news, to my ears, is Rattlesnakes. We were able to use the original ½” tapes and upon hearing a ‘flat transfer’ I was shocked at how far we had strayed from the original recordings over the years. I sent the files to the band to listen to to be sure I wasn’t imagining things. Is this as great as I think it is? They agreed. We decided to make the new version as close as possible to the original tapes. I hope you enjoy it.
The first bonus LP is all our collected b-sides, no live recordings or re-mixes.
LP 5 is demo recordings, many of which had never been heard, outside of our circle, until 2015.
The final LP is rarities, from the unreleased 1983 single Down At The Mission, the 1985 Paul Hardiman recordings, the live cover versions from our 1986 New York show, the 1986 Paris recordings with Chris Thomas, and one re-mix – our own extended version of My Bag, which we all pretty much agreed was the only decent dance mix we ever made. Pretty much everything we recorded which wasn’t a complete disaster is here.
The book contains an extensive essay by Pete Paphides, who spent way more time and wrote many more words than was originally the plan. He spoke to all the protagonists. It’s a lovely story, if a little sad, at times.
Also some ‘biggies’ announced in the last week from the EAGLES ‘Live From The Forum MMXVIII’ on 4LP, 2CD, 2CD/DVD or 2CD/BluRay, local band DAGENHAM YANKS have a new album on vinyl out, NUN ATTAX / FIVE GO DOWN TO THE SEA? / BEETHOVEN Record with CD and Fanzine in the shop now.. It’s a great product.. MY MORNING JACKET have a new album announced on Limited Clear LP, Indies Only Deluxe Coloured LP, or CD, and RICK WAKEMAN announced a new album ‘The Red Planet’...
And we lost the great ENNIO, the best in his field in my opinion.. Incredible talent and ear.. Unbelievable.. Never saw him and probably could have in recent years but didn’t move on it and it’s a regret…
Releases for the 24th of July we have the excellent MICK FLANNERY live album ‘Alive : Cork Opera House 2019’ oc CD or Double Vinyl.. Proceeds going to help Mick’s crew and band, during for them, more than most of us, an never ending quest to try to return to work.. We have the gorgeous signed test pressing up for raffle for one lucky purchaser of the aforementioned record (CD or LP), and we may even have more exciting news with Mick Flannery very soon.. Will keep ye posted…
Sorry I forgot a nice one for the 17th of July… ‘Dion and Friends’ gets it’s vinyl release.. Actually the album is called ‘Blues With Friends’, where Dion duets with some list of friends.. Bruce, Paul Simon, Bonamassa, Jeff Beck, Van The Man to name just a few of the medium hitters there…
Universal for the 24th of July have the one press only Picture Disc vinyl of iconic million / zillion selling BOB MARLEY compilation ‘Legend’... Looks sweet…
Universal for July 24th also has the PJ HARVEY ‘Dry Demos’ on 180gm vinyl with Download… NOW 106 is out on the 24th, DIANA ROSS ‘Supertonic : The Remixes’ is out on CD and coloured vinyl, new remixes of 9 classic tracks, and lastly for the 24th Universal have a new album by ROGER O’ DONNELL (Keys player with the Cure)
PIAS for the 24th has the PJ HARVEY ‘Dry’ reissue, first time it’s out on vinyl in 20 years.. Fine debut… The original label Too Pure are putting out the reissue as well, whereas UMC have the demos release.. Don’t ask me to try to explain the ‘murky’ world of record deals.. PIAS for the 24th also have new albums by KAMAAL WILLIAMS (indies only available on vinyl) and also SHIRLEY COLLINS.. Indies only as well..
Proper for the 24th of July have a new album by THE NAKED AND FAMOUS…
The Orchard for the 24th of July have the new album by COURTNEY MARIE ANDREWS on Loose Records… It’s called ‘Old Flowers’ and it’s on CD or LP… The Orchard also have a new album by LORI MCKENNA…
Music on Vinyl for the 24th of July have TIN MACHINE 2 coloured vinyl and CD, NINA SIMONE ‘And Piano’, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY ‘Wiseblood’, INCUBUS ‘Make Yourself’, SLOWDIVE ‘Just For A Day’, G3 ‘Live In Tokyo’ also so a nice few due… I think a lot will be the limited coloured ones…
Right so, the 31st of July sees the new FONTAINES D.C. Record ‘A Hero’s Death‘… Deluxe Gatefold Double LP on 45RPM 180gm vinyl cut at Abbey Road with a 12” by 12” photo / lyric book.. Also available on Stormy Blue vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, standard black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, or as a two pocket wallet CD… I love the new tune to be honest… Cracking tune altogether.. Really excited and thrilled to have a signed pressing of the record for one of ye lucky folks as well as gorgeous signed prints for some runners up.. Get on the album on some format.. Get into the competition / raffle… Probably the nicest / most sought after price we have ever had…
Sin é for this week really folks..
Thanks for listening,
Ray, Shane and Bobby
Hope all is going okay with ye.. Lots going on in your local tape and record emporium over the last while.. Being honest we had two great week’s business but back to reality and normality this week for sure.. Weird how good it was, I suppose people showing support, pent up demand, and our searing good looks must all be factors in it.. Anyway, back to reality..
Nice few releases in the siopa for this Friday the 3rd of July, the biggest being the new album from PAUL WELLER ‘On Sunset’.. We will have a Deluxe CD and Gatefold Double LP also.. All the indies purple vinyl are spoken for i’m afraid.. Sorry..
As regards to allocations.. Certain titles or products are genuinely limited and will not last.. There are two in the distance that I will mention on this weeks newsletter… The PRINCE ‘Sign O’ The Times’ reissues (masterpiece and all that it is), particularly the 13LP/DVD version, the 8CD/DVD version and the 2LP Indies Only Peach version… We are doing best price jobs on these 3 of €300, €150 and €36… There is only one run of each of these and they won’t be around for very long.. So if you would like one, then drop us an email or buy it from the website… Just 10 of each up there as I don’t know how many I will get..
Similar story with the new SUFJAN STEVEN’s album ‘The Ascension’... Yippee yippeee yipeeee. One of my own personal favourite artists… I thought his last album ‘Carrie and Lowell’ was a work of genius.. Understated but yet so layered, thought provoking lyrics.. Still is my favourite record of the last 4 or 5 years, so i’m super excited for this release.. (I know Sufjan has done collaborations etc over the last number of years… But a new solo album.. Yes boi!!!) Again there is a independent shop only vinyl release with this and these are going to be allocated as there aren’t enough to go around… Guaranteed.. Similar to Weller, I will not have it for sale on release day, they will be gone, same as above.. Email in or buy it from the site if interested..
PAUL MCCARTNEY ‘Flaming Pie’ 3LP version is a very limited one also, as is the big boxset.. Sin é an scéal with them anyway..
Bobby and Shane (The IT Department) have done loads of work getting pre-orders up here… Loads more additions this week.. I see JOHN PRINE ‘Souvenirs’ makes it’s debut on vinyl.. Great loss to music… SPOON reissues up for pre-order, as well new records by BILL CALLAHAN, FLAMING LIPS, DANEIL AVERY, GREGORY PORTER, DISCLOSURE, CAT STEVENS, and reissues by THELONIOUS MONK, MERCURY REV, CLANNAD, PLANXTY, CHRISTY MOORE, BELL X1.. Loads been added, and all up at
Right so, on with what’s out next week, the 10th of July.. Sorry getting ahead of myself, it’s not just ‘Welllllerrrr’ (ye heard that story once to many I think)… Out on the 3rd also.. THE CHARLATAN’s reissue of ’10th and 11th’, SPARKS new album on Deluxe CD, 2LP Vinyl or 2LP Picture Disc, VANGELIS reissue, new WILLIE NELSON, new RAY LAMONTAGNE, new BURY TOMORROW album also…
So the 10th of July we have the new LAURA MARLING album ‘Song For Our Daughter’.. Lovely marbled indies only vinyl available for it.. THE STREETS have a new album out also with an indies only blue vinyl, GLASS ANIMALS have a new album as does MARGO PRICE, again with an indies only coloured vinyl.. Her debut was really good from a few years back
Warner for the 10th of July have the DMA’s new album, GRATEFUL DEAD ‘Workingman’s Dead’ 50th Anniversary 3CD or 3LP, new album by PVRIS as well as RUFUS WAINWRIGHT’s brand new album..
Sony have the REO SPEEDWAGON ‘The Hits’ reissue on vinyl
Right so, moving on to releases for the 17th of July and as with every other week the order book is open for new stuff or old stuff, and it promises to be a bumper week… The BOB DYLAN vinyl is out… It’s a good album, have been playing the CD in the shop over recent weeks.. Watching No Direction Home also at the moment.. Speaking of music docs, The Beastie Boys one is just excellent.. Well worth a watch.. Anyway, DYLAN Vinyl, still some (not many) of the Olive coloured indies LP left.. I honestly doubt if I will have any / many on release date.. Standard black vinyl available also..
Sony also for the 17th have the new FIONA APPLE album ‘Fetch The Bolt Cutters’ on CD, standard LP or indies only coloured LP.. Ten out of ten on Pitchfork.. Best rating in nearly 10 years I believe.. I’m not a great believer in reviews… On man’s meat kind of the.. I was banging on about Sufjan earlier and some of you may get it but a lot of ye may not… It’s not a right or wrong thing, music.. I feel anyway, if you get something positive out of whatever, then it’s a good thing, we all like different things.. So reviews I take with a pinch of salt.. But 10 out of 10 is as good as it gets I suppose.. I have not heard any of the album, just making a point, an I.M.O point… I am looking forward to hearing it … Wrapped meself in knots a little there… Sony for the 17th of July also have the new album by DIXIE CHICK’s ‘Gaslighter’ out for release, and lastly but not lastly for sure Sony have the DEPECHE MODE ‘Violator’ 12” Singles Boxset.. €160 best price job on this..
Warner for the 17th of July have the 40th Anniversary Coloured Vinyl Reissue of JOY DIVISION’s ‘Closer’, as well as the 12” Singles ‘Atmosphere‘, ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart‘, and ‘Trasmission‘… Little positive price error on this one.. Not from this corporation but the other corporation involved. Price is now €25 and not €28.. Anyone who bought on the site, we will issue refunds.. So I don’t have to say much about the record, do I?? And 3 quality 12”s also..
Also out on the 17th of July is Dublin band SILVERBACK’s debut album ‘Fad’, very good again I.M.O…
Universal for the 17th of July have the BOB MARLEY ‘Legend’ Picture Disc vinyl.. For retailers we are allowed just one order only on it, one bit of the cherry… Universal are also re-releasing the soundtrack to ‘Absolute Beginners’ on vinyl and CD. PAUL MCCARTNEY’s ‘Flaming Pie’ reissue is released on the 31st of July but I need to put orders up this week so if interested please let us know.. Here’s the info
Flaming Pie is the tenth solo studio album by Paul McCartney, first released in 1997. Having been heavily involved in The Beatles’ Anthology project, Paul had time to reflect on the standards he and his bandmates had set during their career, and applied these to what would become his first album in four years. Made in a much more spontaneous style, with songs recorded here and there, mostly on holiday, it’s an album that luxuriates in its own sense of fun.
Featuring producers George Martin and Jeff Lynne, as well as musicians including Steve Miller, Ringo Starr and his own son, James McCartney, Flaming Pie would go on to become one of Paul’s most acclaimed albums. Sales were brisk, with the album only kept from the Number 1 slot on both sides of the Atlantic by the cultural phenomenon that was the Spice Girls’ Spice album. Released on 31st July and available as
3LP: Half-speed master of the remastered main album tracks cut over 2LPs for the first time, 1LP of the Demos and Home Recordings.
2LP: Half-speed master of the remastered main album tracks cut over 2LPs for the first time.

Universal for the 17th also have new albums by ELLIE GOULDING and SAMANTHA CRAIN… Universal are also doing a rerun of the complete QUEEN studio albums, again on coloured vinyl.. The initial ran 4/5 years ago, and the coloured vinyl did not las long, and was repressed on black vinyl, then the coloured ones are back again now.. Best price job… Sit down now… €430…
Lastly Universal have reissues by MARVIN GAYE ‘Every Great Motown Hit’ vinyl, and ‘His Classic Duets’ vinyl as well as a FALL OUT BOY greatest hits vinyl called ‘Believers Never Die’…
Don;t forget we have our two competitions running for the singed test pressing of MICK FLANNERY’s ‘Alive’ album out on 24th of July… Draw on 24th of July… I have heart it all and it’s a great live album.. And the following week the 31st of July is the release of FONTAINES D.C.’s sophomore album and we have a signed test pressing and some signed prints with that one.. Their new tune is great once again.. You can pre-order both records here :

Right so, releases for the 10th of July (and I’ll gladly take requests as always)… Sorry forgot the 3rd of July sees the release of the new BURY TOMORROW album standard vinyl and picture disc vinyl as well as the new WILLIE NELSON album ‘First Rose Of Spring’.. Some man is Wille.. I’m not sure which recent album it was and there’s a picture of Willie at the desk of the studio with a big bag of weed in front of him.. He is 87 years young now and believe it or not this is his 70th solo studio album.. He seems to like the studio eh hem, eh hem…
Right July 10th… One I am personally looking forward to is the new LAURA MARLING record, ‘Song For Our Daughter’. CD, Vinyl or Indies Only Vinyl… Her last record was one of my favourite albums of 2017, ‘Semper Femina’, so I am looking forward to it. The Indies Only vinyl is either D2C or Indies Only Shops…
Warner for the 10th of July have the new release from DMA’s ‘The Glow’, which has an indies only vinyl… They also have a GRATEFUL DEAD 50th Anniversary reissue of ‘Workingman’s Dead’, new album by PVRIS and a brand new album by RUFUS WAINWRIGHT ‘Unfollow The Rules’ on CD, deluxe CD or 2LP…
Universal for the 10th of July has the new album by THE STREETS ‘None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Alive’ on CD, Standard LP or indies only blue LP…
Sony have a REO SPEEDWAGON vinyl reissue of ‘The Hits’..
PIAS for the 17th of July have the new PROTOMARTYR album ‘Ultimate Success Today’ on CD, Lp, or Indies Only LP... I was banging on about this a for a few months.. New music also from Jarvis Cocker out on Rough Trade Records on the 17th.. JARV IS… ‘Beyond The Pale’ on Indies Orange Vinyl or Standard Vinyl.. New BLACK MIDI 12” EP also out and a nice SOUL JAZZ Compilation ‘Presents : KALEIDOSCOPE’ also out as indies exclusive 3LP with bonus 7”…
A couple of nice bits gone up for pre-order for a little later down the line, including PIXIES ‘Bossanova’ 30th Anniversary Red Vinyl (Aug 7th), new BIFFY CLYRO LP ‘A Celebration of Endings’ (Aug 14th), and new BRIGHT EYES album on a few different formats (Aug 21st), and new PINEAPPLE THIEF album (Sept 4th).. All pre-orders are up on the site to browse at the following link :
Dublin band Silverbacks debut album is out via Cargo on 17th July also, the record is called ‘Fad’ and is on CD, LP or indies LP… I don’t know if you have heard this 5 piece or not?? Excellent tunes in my opinion.. I am really looking forward to this one… Check ’em out…. Here is a tune or two from them :
On the Irish scene and I nearly forgot to mention the R.S.A.G Vinyl ‘Chroma’ is due to us this week or latest next week, and I have one word for it… Brilliant!!
Sin é for this week folks,
Thanks for listening,
Ray, Bobby and Shane,
Hope all is well out there or as well as can be… Bellyfull of news tonight… Where do I start?? We are opening back up I suppose…. So this week we are open Thursday 10-6 and Friday 10-6 and Saturday 2.5…
OPEN THURSDAY… I suppose we have been closed to the public for 6 months out of the last 10 months due to fires and Covid, so we hope we can get a little run of abnormal normality…
We want to open right, safely for ye guys and for us guys behind the counter… So there are a few rules or guidelines depending on my mood… No seriously, a few important points re opening…
1. We ask everyone to sanitise their hands when entering and leaving the shop. (Sanitiser inside the door on the right and at counter).
2. Only 5 Customers in the shop at any one time.
3. 20 Minutes Max in the shop per customer.
4. Watch your space and other people’s space. N.B. 2 METERS.
5. Please watch your respiratory etiquette
6. Please respect us if we ask you to move back etc. Do not get odd!!
Look we (like all retailers or small retailers anyway) want to do this safely and securely for everyone involved so we can hopefully stay open for a period of time without upheaval… And for everyone’s health and benefit also… Call and collect is still a thing so if you feel you’d rather that then that is absolutely fine also… Whatever you prefer that way.. I was opening on Thursday 18th June anyway but Leo accelerated that last week so it’s the 11th of June… Sin sin for now with that anyway.. HSE recommends face masks for indoor retail also…
Right releases in the shop for Friday include LIAM GALLAGHER ‘MTV UNPLUGGED‘, BLUE NILE ‘HIGH’, new NORAH JONES, MANIC STREET PREACHERS ‘Gold Against The Soul’, STEVE HACKETT ‘Genesis Revisited Live’, and DRAB CITY debut…
Next week is a bumper week really.. The best all year really I think… New BOB DYLAN CD, new (ish) NEIL YOUNG ‘Homegrown’ album.. Still a small few of the indies only vinyl with the lithograph available.. Two very exciting releases these two above..
New PHOEBE BRIDGER’s album also, as well as THE NATIONAL 10th Anniversary 3LP of ‘High Violet’ both out next Friday.. BOWIE’s ‘Space Oddity’ picture disc is out the 19th also as is the new LAMB OF GOD, new BLUES PILLS, WHITESNAKE ‘The ROCK Album’, K.D. LANG reissues, and Music on Vinyl have a reissue of AMERICA’s self titled album, as well as KOOL AND THE GANG in the Collected Series…. So the 19th of June is shaping up to be a big release day… The 20th of June then is Love Record Stores so some releases for that also..
More big news for us.. Really thrilled and delighted to say we have a beautiful signed test pressing of the new FONTAINES D.C. record ‘A Hero’s Death’, signed, yes signed, by the band to give away to one lucky customer.. Here are the links to pre-order for the four formats : The CD, standard vinyl, stormy blue coloured vinyl, or the deluxe 45RPM DLP black vinyl.. We have had a few lovely prices down through the years but I personally think this one tops the tree… An absolutely beautiful, unique item that would be savage in any record collection… We are obviously chuffed to have it… It’s great to be involved and with the lads being an Irish band it makes it all the sweeter… Big thanks to the band and to those at Partisan Records also.. Get in touch if you want your name in the hat… I hope I need a big hat that day… More on the FONTAINES D.C. album in the coming weeks before release on 31st July..
Right so, releases for the 26th of June (and if interested in anything here please pop us an email).. There are a blast of ROLLING STONES Vinyl Reissues, Half Speed Masters for better sound quality… €25 for the single LPs, and €33 for the Double LPs… So we will have Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St, It’s Only Rock N’ Roll, Black and Blue, Emotional Rescue, Tattoo You, Undercover, Dirty Work, Steel Wheels, Voodoo Lounge, Bridges To Babylon, A Bigger Bang and Some Girls...
Each half speed remaster was cut from specific original tapes to get the very best sound from the format.. All 180gm vinyl…
Sorry was so excited with the Fontaines news / album price etc I forgot some releases for 19th June.. GRETCHEN PETERs has a new one, RON SEXSMITH has a new one.. We follow Ron on Twitter and he is an enjoyable follow.. A good character I’d say… ‘Hermitage‘ is the name of the new record on CD, standard LP and pink indies only LP… I think his show in Dublin is rescheduled for November now…
Uni for the 19th of June have a first timer on vinyl for JONI MITCHELL‘s ‘Shine’ (I have been listening to a lot of Joni lately.. We dip in and out of stuff don’t we I suppose)… JESSIE WARE’s 4th Album is releases on the 19th, uptempo, dancey listen… LITTLE STEPHEN’s reissue of 1987 album ‘Freedom, No Compromise’ also on CD or CD with a live DVD…
DERMOT KENNEDY has a new and very limited 6 track Live Ep out on the 19th of June also ‘Lost In The Soft Light’, only available in indie stores or D2C… NELLY’s album ‘Country Grammar’ gets a 2LP release and LUDOVICO EINAUDI releases ‘Live at the Royal Albert Hall’ on 2CD or 2CD/DVD.. Uni for the 19th also have 3 Bluenote vinyl reissues from LARRY YOUNG, KENNY DURHAM and ANDREW HILL, these are all analogue reissues…
To coincide with the STONES breakouts for the 26th of June the new tune is out that day also on 10” Vinyl, brand new song, ‘Living In A Ghost Town’, indies only 10” orange coloured single… Numbers will be tight on this…
Right back to the 26th of June, we will have the new KHRUANGBIN album ‘Mordochai’ on CD, LP or Indies Only Pink LP… Not sure if you listened to this band from Huston, Texas before but I think they’re very interesting… Have a listen to Time (You and I) here from the new album and see what you think..
Another interesting one, SQUID have a new 10” Single coming out on the 26th called ‘Sludge’, give it a listen here.
New HAIM album for the 26th, JOHNNY CASH ‘Mercury Albums’ boxset on Vinyl and CD, his 6 albums from 86-91 on Mercury remastered..
Sony for the 26th of June have DEPECHE MODE’s ‘Spirits In The Forest‘ 2CD, 2CD/2DVD or 2CD/2BLURAY Live Album… Not many better live.. Sony will also have a DOLLY PARTON ‘Very Best Of’ 2LP €28, ALAN JACKSON ‘Greatest Hits’ 2LP €28, MIRANDA LAMBERT ‘Platinum’ 2LP €28, CARRIE UNDERWOOD ‘Some Heart’ 2LP €28..
Another big announcement last week was MICK FLANNERY’s ‘Alive : Cork Opera House 2019‘ Double LP or CD.. Live from the Opera House in September 2019… If you have not caught Mick (on his own or with band) live before.. He’s cracking… This live album will give you a great sense of that quality, musicianship, and song craft… This is a lovely release also because profits from the sale of this record are being shared amongst Mick’s band and crew. Covid has thrown a grenade into this beautiful sector of our economy, the arts.. Full time talented folk who’s livelihoods have been completely ripped away… So not only are you purchasing a quality live record by one of our own, you are helping support the wider music community also.. The links to pre-order the album are here or drop us an email and I will put your name on one also.. July 24th Release Date…
Also on the Irish scene we have copies of JOHN BLEK’s new live album Digressions #1 : Live At StudiOwz’ also now in stock, another fine fine listen…
Last but not least for this week we are delighted to have copies of PADDY DENNEHY’s debut album ‘Little Light’ for release Friday.. So regular lads whose opinion’s I respect speak really highly of Paddy’s songs… So i’m really looking forward to spending some time with his album.. More info here and a tune here :
Paddy Dennehy’s debut album ‘Little Light’ has been a long time coming. He began performing in 2013 and made quite the first impression: his first gig in Dublin was on the Late, Late Show; his first gig with a band was at Electric Picnic; and his first gig in Cork was at the personal invitation of Glen Hansard to join him on stage at the Everyman Theatre to sing ‘Hard Times’. His forthcoming album “Little Light” draws from a much deeper well than his first attempts. Song by song he tackles religion, parenthood, love, and loneliness through a mixture of character driven stories and personal recollections.
Over the past seven years these songs have been taken apart and put back together again, leaner and more concise. He has honed his stagecraft by supporting Irish stalwarts such as Imelda May, Lisa Hannigan and Mick Flannery , headlining venues such as Cyprus Avenue and Dolans Warehouse, and by performing at major festivals across the country. The release of his debut album ‘Little Light’ looks set to be a highlight on the Irish musical calendar.
“Few possess such rare talent, and we can only advise you to keep an eye — and both ears — on [him].” – Rolling Stone
“…the beginning of something quite special indeed.” – entertainment.ie
“The past year has qualified him to a status worthy of recognition.” – GoldenPlec
“I was just f**king knocked out.” – Glen Hansard

Hope you and yours are doing alright…. Keep at it… We all have to truck on with our new reality don’t we… A pain in the liathroidí I know but it is what it is.. Nearly 1600 lives lost.. It probably could have been way worse at this point… Still sobering figure isn’t it, 1574 I think… Christy Dignam’s dad one of them.. I don’t know if ye saw the RTÉ documentary on Christy a few years back (well worth a watch, may even still be on the RTÉ player) but his dad had a part in the doc.. Salt from the very earth.. A lovely man… Horrible disease…
Right onto the tunes.. Due into the emptyvessel.ie this week are new albums by STEVE EARLE, THE 1975 (CD only for now), BADLY DRAWN BOY and TIM BURGESS.. The shop had a little bit of interaction with Tim on Twitter lately and he gave us a lovely shout out yesterday… He has been a legend with his Twitter Listening Parties in the last few months, and people have revolved their days around these listening events, very inclusive and helping give people a tangibly purposeful participation every day, crucially without any motive.. The passion for music, records and helping people are all clearly visible to see… Top quality everywhere.. Tim’s new record is out Friday and you can buy it here if you like..
Next week the 29th we have new release by CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS, IGGY POP ‘The Bowie Years’ CD set, PRINCE latest batch of reissues including ‘Up All Nite With Prince : The One Nite Alone Collection’ 4CD/DVD, ‘One Nite Alone… Live!’ 4LP, ‘One Nite Alone… The Aftershow : It Ain’t Over’ 2LP, ‘Rainbow Children’ vinyl, and ‘One Night Alone’ vinyl, and the new TEDDY THOMPSON album..
I think there are a few things there and in fairness I do think the releases are improving a bit for June and July.. So that’s a positive.. We all need a way to find to do our business safely if we can… I think I may have got my phases mixed up.. I thought it was 20KM from the 18th of May but I think it was only 5KM so if in the radius with work or home… Remote collection firmly available.. 021-4967119, stock it in yer phone… One of us here more or less Monday to Friday 10-6, more less except until 4:30 on Monday… The Shane boy is starting back today also which is great… We are back to a three piece.. A remote three piece… But pieced back together again… Order book always open folks… Email or phone… Website always open also..
Right so before I drive on with releases for the 5th of June and maybe the 12th of June (Pssttt psssttt… Pre-Orders for these a great help as they make my crystal ball less foggy), there was a couple of beauts announced again in the last few days.. I suppose the biggest announcement in the last week is the release of the unreleased NEIL YOUNG album ‘Homegrown’. The album recorded after ‘Harvest’ and before ‘Comes A Time’… Eeh not bad those two albums you could say… Reviews are very strong on it.. It was to be a Record Store Day release but it’s broken ranks (I for one not complaining about that.. Record Shops need things to sell if we are going to hang around), and it’s now out on the 19th of June.. CD, standard LP and RSD Stores Exclusive LP with a lithograph of the album artwork.. This really is a ‘lost’ treasure I feel.. ‘Lost’ albums are branded about all the time but this one seriously has my juices flowing.. 7 completely unreleased Young tracks from the 70s… 7th Heaven!! Email back if interested or buy it from the website..
Neil Young puts it best: “This album is the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes a Time”. Recorded between June 1974 and January 1975, Homegrown was intended to come out in 1975 before Neil cancelled the release. The album has remained unreleased until now, achieving a legendary status among Neil Young fans in the process. The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased – “Separate Ways,” “Try,” “Mexico,” “Kansas,” We Don’t Smoke It No More,” “Vacancy” and “Florida” (a spoken word narration). Also included are the first recordings of “Love Is A Rose,” “Homegrown,” “White Line, “Little Wing,” and “Star Of Bethlehem” – different versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums. Neil plays solo on some tracks (guitar, piano and harmonica), and is joined by a band of friends on other tracks, including Levon Helm, Ben Keith, Karl T Himmel, Tim Drummond, Emmylou Harris and Robbie Robertson. Recorded in analog, and mastered from the original master tapes, this long-lost album is a wonderful addition to Neil’s incomparable catalogue.
Best prices are €14 on CD, €24 on standard LP and €26 on indies LP… Not sure how many of the RSD one I’ll get but will do my very best to get as many as I can…
Confetti records for the 5th of June have the reissue and remastered version of ‘High’ by THE BLUE NILE… A first timer on vinyl so a nice one for all the Blue Nile fans especially…
I see a nice version of ‘Closer’ by JOY DIVISION is coming out on the 17th of July as well as 3 classic singles… First the album gets a reissue on vinyl and is released as a crystal clear 40th Anniversary version, as well as the release of 3 non album singles on 12” with remastered audio.. ‘Transmission’, ‘Atmosphere’, and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’.. These 12”s have not been around for a while, lovely pressings they are.. Also 40 years since the passing of Ian.. I was only six so no I don’t remember it but by 1990 I loved the two records (like so many others)… Again email us if interested or buy from the site if interested… €15 for each of the singles and €28 for the album reissue..
Also a nice one for 19th of June is BOWIE’s ‘Space Oddity’ Limited Edition 1972 Picture Disc.. €36 best price job on that..
Finally on the pre-orders on site for now, THE ACADEMIC are back with a brand new 6-Track EP due to be released on 26th of June, called ‘Acting My Age’. It will be out on orange vinyl, cd or cassette.. And lastly the 4th RUN THE JEWELS album ‘RTJ4’, due out September 18th is also now up on the site, which will be released on CD, Standard 2LP, or deluxe 4LP…
Released on the 5th of June is the ROLLING BLACKOUTS COSTAL FEVER (R.B.C.F) album on Sub Pop on CD, Standard LP, Indies Only LP, and Audio Cassette… Australian band’s second album, really liked the first album from a few years ago… Jingly jangly pop-rock, quality though… Looking forward to this one…
Now BIBIO’s record out on 12/6 also on Warp label, as well as a little one Raymond likes the sound of (big time) which is the debut album by DRAB CITY.. Out via Bella Union… I know jack sh*t about them to be honest.. Google I suppose Raymond… But instantly I liked the sound of them… Love their sound to be honest… Here’s a few tunes
Also nice for the 12/6 is the SAMMY BRUE debut alum on New West Records…
LIAM GALLAGHER’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ is also out on the 12th on CD and LP but more on that next week…
Sony for the 5th of June have a coloured vinyl reissue of JIMI HENDRIX’s ‘Band Of Gypsies’, and Sony for the 12th of June have the reissue and remaster of MANIC STREET PREACHERs ‘Gold Against The Soul’ as a CD/Book or a Vinyl remaster.. €60 best price on the CD/Book and €27 best price on the vinyl..

Sin é for this week,
Thanks as always
The Emptyvessell . ie
Hope all is well… Crikey it’s been a strange week… Lots going on ad kind of not going on.. The RSD Lists at last.. More on that later…. Firstly releases in the shop today and we have to start with our boy RORY with the new live album ‘Check Shirt Wizard : Live in 77’… Thanks to Vincent Zara, the artist who painted the cover of the album.. We have had savage demand and interest in the bespoke signed prints… Bare with us as we try to work our way through them… Some CD stock was delayed also but should today I hope!! Should be enough vinyl to do the rounds… A great honour to have the painting displayed on our shop floor.. The painting is now property of the Gallagher Family so we are truly honoured to have it on display until close of play on Saturday 7th… I hope none of ye get Martin Cahill style ambitions… Such a lovely thing to have…
Also in the good siopa Musiczone today are new ones by PAUL HEATON / JACQUI ABBOT, DEACON BLUE, MAC MILLER, NOEL GALLAGHER, JONATHAN WILSON, US GIRLS, STEPHEN MALKMUS as well as live albums by CREAM, MARILLION and reissues by THE WHO, EMBRACE, 2PAC, STATUS QUO, SIMPLE MINDS, HUMAN LEAGUE and a best of vinyl by THE CRANBERRIES…
Video is up for this week with the Bob Man back, and this week there was a lovely suprice act of (recyclable) kindness to the shop in the video! Thank you to our mystery parcel sender!
Before I move on to next week Friday the 13th of March…. A little on RSD..
I suppose most of ye know the drill with it by now… Record Store Day is a celebration of Record Shops one day a year (normally third Saturday in April unless Easter gets in the way)… Artists, bands and labels release bespoke, limited albums to support the shop and drive customers to the shops… It has flaws but above is the premise… It’s based on a strictly first come first served on Saturday morning of the 18th of April this year… The official RSD20 list is attached here but hopefully by early next week we will send out lists again but crucially with prices for each of the record companies.. So if ye can hold fire until then that would be great… Then email (is best) us back with your wish or wishes from the list ideally for me with the record company next to it… Over 500 titles so no company makes my life a lot harder in the process.. So please company name if possible… Send us back your ‘wish lists’ does not guarantee anything i’m afraid.. No promises… But it allows me to order your record (especially if it’s obscure and I may not have taken a chance on it otherwise)… There are over 500 records released so I suppose i’m asking for help with it.. Ok some are no brainers.. But others are crystal ball jobs.. So help.. Without any guarantees.. You’re some boy Raymond!!
The wish lists also allow me to fight harder when I know 10 or 12 folk are chasing The Cure releases.. I hope you have an idea of it now if RSD is new to you… For the old hands.. Same o same o… And please everyone take it in the spirit it was set up for.. To celebrate Independent Record Shops… We will get the lists out with prices and record companies early next week.. Let the fun commence… Here is the full RSD2020 list with no pricing
Right so right so…. Moving on to releases for the 13th of March… Warner have a deluxe reissue of ‘In A Lifetime’ by CLANNAD which has 2 brand new tracks…. There is a few physical formats with 4CDs, 3LPs + 7” Single, there is a 2CD Mediabook, a 2CD or a 2LP smoky coloured vinyl… Staying with classic Irish bands, Warner via BMG have the new BOOMTOWN RATS album ‘Citizens of Boomtown’ on standard black black LP, CD, or indies only gold vinyl… The Rats are back!!
