Drop 1 Add N to XOn The Wires of Our NervesSoul Jazz Records2LPIn the space of five short years (and as many albums) at the end of the 20th century, Add N To X caused havoc with their unique retro-futurist electronic music. Add N To X’s musical intensity proved too much for the group who split up in 2002. Their album On The Wires of Our Nerves, complete with its classic cover image, recorded on Soul Jazz Records’ then new offshoot label Satellite Records, launched them into the spotlight and included two NME Singles of the Week ‘Black Regent’ and ‘King Wasp’. Over twenty years since it was first released and long out of print the album ‘On The Wires of Our Nerves’ stands up one of the most forward-looking electronic albums of then and now. This classic album is released in a very limited one-off pressing silver coloured vinyl edition as a Record Store Day exclusive title. A

A three-track limited edition 45 that is the official song for the WALES National football team as they head into this summer’s EURO 2020 Tournament. 

Wales kick off their campaign against Switzerland on June 12th 2021, the very same day as Record Store Day 2021 with The Alarm capturing the atmosphere and spirit of the Wales fans through the sure to be terrace anthems ‘RED WALL OF CYMRU’ and ‘RED DRAGON TATTOO. These are joined by a reworking of the band’s classic Spirit Of ’76 as SPIRIT OF ’58’, which lyrically celebrates Wales only World Cup Tournament [which also happened to be the first ever such event back in 1958 when Wales made it to the quarter finals only to be knocked by Brazil and a goal scored by the soon to be legendary PELE.] 

The Alarm Spirit of ’58 is sure to appeal to Alarm fans around the world and fans and supporters of the WALES team. 

These recordings are unique to the EP as they are the original demonstration versions and therefore even more collectible for fans and supporters alike.

Drop 2 Ani DiFrancoAni DiFrancoRighteous BabeYellow and Black Splatter 2LP Originally released in 1990, Ani DiFranco’s first album is so revolutionary that the purveyors of status quo install women’s music sections in the dusty corner of their stores in order to hide it. Dorm rooms coast to coast transform into audio dub houses where young women with aching arms scratch out hand written labels and personal letters like “you have to hear this.” These quasi-booking agent and pirate distributors work long into the night purchasing greyhound tickets for a certain young Folksinger to come play at their school. Today. Folk and poetry prevail. Vulnerable stories arm themselves as powerful songs on Ani DiFranco’s self-titled first solo record. Ani’s voice is rich and eloquent. Her guitar moves like an appendage. From cockroach pus to abortion rights the record doesn’t flinch. This singer/songwriter folk mecca contains songs with an epic stage life such as, “Both Hands,” “Out of Habit,” “The Slant,” and “Fire Door.” All of the tracks embody the love and humor inherent in Ani’s music. Thematically this record gives a face to feminism that is both beautiful and accessible to anyone. The stories focus on relationships and humanity. We sit in the waiting room of an abortion clinic after facing an angry crowd in “Lost Woman Song.” “Talk to Me Now” and “The Story” confront the inequality of the sexes in a man’s world. The love songs examine relationships with the same discernment as the political ones. “Both Hands” is a hands down favorite among any DiFranco fan. “Every Angle” infuses the thrill of protest with the joy of a crush, “thoughts of you are picketing my brain/ they refuse to work such long hours without rest/ in unstable conditions at best.” And the unforgettably poetic and guitarific, “Fire Door” is a heartfelt treat in it’s first studio recording.FolkFolk750 UK / 300 EU2250

Drop 1Art Blakey And His Jazz MessengersChippin’ InTidal Waves Music2XLP with insertArt Blakey (1919–1990) actually needs little introduction, the American Jazz drummer and bandleader made a name for himself in the 1940s & 1950s playing with contemporaries such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. He is often considered to have been Thelonious Monk’s most empathetic drummer (he played on both Monk’s first recording session in 1947 and his final one in 1971). In the decades that followed Blakey recorded for all THE labels that mattered in the field of jazz (Columbia, Blue Note, Atlantic, RCA, Impulse!, Riverside, Prestige, Verve, etc.). His collaborations were numerous and include working with equally legendary artists such as Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Chet Baker, John Coltrane….and countless others.JazzJazz500N/A

Drop 1Asian Dub FoundationAccess DeniedX-Ray Production2LP / CD / digitalIn the mid-1950s he and Horace Silver formed ‘The Jazz Messengers’: a group that Blakey would perform and record with for the next 35 years. Originally formed as a collective of contemporaries…but over the years the band became known as an incubator for young talent that included artists such as Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Cedar Walton, Chuck Mangione, John Hicks…and MANY others. Art Blakey went on to record dozens of albums with a constantly changing group of Jazz Messengers. Blakey’s final performances were in July 1990. He died on October 16 of lung cancer. The legacy of Art Blakey and his band is not only the music they produced, but also the opportunities they provided for several generations of jazz musicians.ElectronicReggae5002000

Drop 1Baby StrangeIn The FleshIcons Creating Evil Art7″Due for release straight off the back of the hotly anticipated Baby Strange EP ‘Land of Nothing’ in March, this double A-Side 7” has been created exclusively for Record Store Day 2021 and features a brand-new Baby Strange studio release ‘In the Flesh’ alongside a cover of Icons Creating Evil Art label mate Nicky William’s ‘Pathetic Fuck’. 

In the flesh is a commentary on the role social media continues to play within people’s lives. Now more so than ever, leading to life in a post-pandemic world, the gap in behaviour between on-screen personalities & the same people In The Flesh has never been greater! 

“Is your lighting right, will you swipe tonight? Never in The Flesh”

With angst laden vocals laid over the rhythmic urgency of the bass and drums, this is a Baby Strange song that will strike hard with the bands ever increasing fan base.
Picking the song for the session, Johnny Madden remembers: After signing with ICEA, I was browsing their catalogue and just fell in love with Nicky William, his baritone voice and his style is so unique. I came across Pathetic Fuck and just knew we had to do it.

It went so well in fact, that Baby Strange recorded their version in the studio, with Chris Marshall (Gerry Cinnamon), and release it to their fans as a collectors edition single for Record Store Day 2021. Fans can expect a stripped back punk purist aesthetic blended with the undoubtedly Baby Strange style that their fans have come to expect.

Drop 2Bill FayTime Of The Last Persecution – Decca/Deram 1971UMC1LPOften labelled as enigmatic, Bill Fay’s loyal cult following has grown significantly over the years. Signed to Decca, the singer-songwriter and pianist released two albums in 1970 and 1971; their haunting, darkly shadowed songs were never meant to appeal to the masses, even at the height of the psychedelia-streaked introspection sparked by the soul-searching and ravaging events of the day. The title track, Time of the Last Persecution, was written in an immediate and visceral response to the killings of four students at Kent State.

However, Fay’s records fell into obscurity, and he virtually vanished from music for more than two decades. Producer Joshua Henry, who had grown up listening to Fay’s early albums from his father’s record collection, tracked down and finally persuaded the reclusive songwriter to record again and hired Matt Deighton to assemble a studio band.

The end result, Life Is People, appeared in August of 2012. Fay played live shows, but maintained his privacy. He released a follow-up, Who Is the Sender? in 2015, and a third album, Countless Branches in 2020. Among his fans are musicians including Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, and The War On Drugs. All three albums received universal critical acclaim. Side 1

Drop 1 Billy NomatesBilly NomatesInvada Records12″ Picture DiscSpecial ltd edition picture disc variant of the critically acclaimed Billy Nomates debut album available for RSD. After huge support from record stores and BBC 6 music alike, the original variant was a big seller for stores and sold out fast. This exclusive variant will be a popular one. Housed in a deluxe spined sleeve including printed insert with hand written lyrics and digital download card. The songs on her debut album all come from a place of defiance. Rebellion against Brexit. Against soul-sapping, dead-end jobs and zero-hours contracts. Against gender inequality, sexual harassment and festivals with obligatory female acts hidden in the small print. Billy’s songs lampoon the same bleak reality satirised by her beloved Scarfolk website and explored so abrasively in the fringe theatre she finds solace in. Musically, there are snatches of Nick Cave’s rumbling sprechgesang; the “off-the-wall-ness of musicians like Captain Beefheart”; Sleaford Mods’ febrile post-punk; the groovesome lofi art-rock of Sonic Youth; and the brassy Americana of Emmylou Harris. What dominates, though, is a feeling of release. Of letting it all out.The track ‘Supermarket Sweep’ features guest vocals by Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods.PunkIndie900100

Drop 2 Black SpidersBlack SpidersDark RidersLPBlack Spiders – Those Trusted And True Sons Of The North Are Back. “We knew the new album had to be special. We’ve been away for a while. The first album was a straight shot, the second on the rocks, with this new one we had to kick down the brewery doors!” Pete Spiby. Back in June of 2017, Sheffield rock beasts Black Spiders waved goodbye to an army of loyal fans with some sonically charged shows before retreating into the shadows. And then, in November of last year, with the world in the grips of the Coronavirus pandemic and after a long year of very little fun from out of the silhouettes they returned with ‘Fly In The Soup’, the first new Black Spiders music in 6 years. Exactly the feel-good shot in the arm the world needed, while we await that other vaccine. The seeds of the Black Spider return were actually planted last summer, when singer and guitarist Pete Spiby began taking to guitarist Ozzy Lister to start writing new material and before they knew it, they had amassed the best part of 40 songs in a very short period of time which they whittled down. And then the pandemic hit. “It’s certainly been a strange process, in unfamiliar territory,” explains Pete. “We started to look at how we could do it given the restrictions and not only that, but we had to replace our original drummer too. For us and probably most other bands, we would usually take a riff or song idea to a rehearsal and thrash it out ‘till we either had something or it ended up in the song graveyard! This time around we couldn’t do that, so myself, Ozzy and on occasion Adam Irwin (bass player) started to send ideas back and forth until we had something to work with in GarageBand. We got to a point where we had enough song ideas with basic structure to go into a studio. It was at this point when we had to look for a new drummer.” With former drummer ‘Tiger’ Si Atkinson unavailable to play, with a week or two of grooming, the band took a chance on Planet Rock DJ Wyatt Wendel to occupy the drum stool. “I’ve never joined or worked with a band in this way EVER,” laughs Wyatt. “2020 certainly made it surreal. “A Pete/Ozzy writing session at the beginning of the year had produced some promising results, but it felt like barriers were popping up everywhere,” explains bassist Adam Irwin. “We started talking about how we could use technology such as GarageBand to help, and slowly but surely the song writing gathered pace. It was time to hook up with our old producer Matt Elliss and try these new songs out in the studio. “Heading into the studio to record songs we’d written but never played together, with a drummer that we’d never met, is one of the stranger experiences I’ve had while being in a band. Thankfully, Wyatt has turned out to be an excellent addition, who despite his faults (loud, southern) has fit right into the band dynamic. Covid has made life really tough for so many of us in our industry. And yet, this new way of song writing has been liberating, this is the most consistent and prolific we’ve ever been, and I am immensely proud of this album.” Against all of the odds, Black Spiders have crafted an album that features 13 tracks of high-energy, feel-good rock n’roll contrasted by demonic doom that despite the disjointed, isolated way it was recorded. It sounds like a band, firing on all cylinders. “We had to dig down deep to pull out some gems and what would we want from Black Spiders,” questions Pete. War, vengeance, mental health, death, conservation & climate change, where are we from? Relationships, friendships, our flaws. Where are we going? Alien life and Mother Earth – some of which made the record.” Kicking off with the aforementioned ‘Fly In The Soup’ single, this 3rd ST long-player wastes no time in grabbing you by the scruff of the neck and dragging you through an album where good times, hooks and riffs are not in short supply, but the doom-drenched likes of ‘Wizard Shall Not Kill Wizard’ and the psychedelic groove of album closer ‘Crooked Black Wings’ give us an album of many moods and dynamics and a reason to be cheerful in 2021. And why does the album have no title? “It wasn’t hard picking a title for the album, as we decided that the focus should be on the band, not the album title, so we decided not to have one. Let the music do the talking…. Tracklisting: 1. Fly In The Soup 2. Stabbed In The Back 3. Wizard Shall Not Kill Wizard 4. Back In The Convent 5. Give Em What They Want 6. Good Times 7.

Drop 1Blackbeard (Dennis Bovell)I Wah DubPLG UK Catalog1 LP Black VinylBorn in Barbados in 1953, reggae guitarist Dennis Bovell (aka Blackbeard) was one of the key figures on the London reggae scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s, not only as a solo artist but also as a producer. I Wah Dub was released in 1980, carrying on Bovell’s eclectic sensibilities and is an example of a classic British dub album which has long since been out of print on vinyl although it was remastered and reissued CD and released on Zonophone in 2003. Bovell’s huge influence on black British music cannot be underestimated. It will be available on vinyl once again, exclusively for RSD 2021.

Drop 2Bobbie GentryWindows Of the WorldUMC1LPBobbie’s journey from country singer-songwriter to blue eyed soul diva stopped off at a hitherto unknown destination along the way. Before she arrived at Muscle Shoals to work her magic with the late great Rick Hall, Bobbie cut a laid back album of classic and contemporary jazz tunes that was abandoned before it had chance to see the light of day. This was a shame, as Bobbie proves herself as adept in this genre as in any other. This self-produced collection first saw the light of day on the Bobbie Gentry boxset, but this lost album deserves to have its own separate release and what better format than vinyl? The set exudes a sophisticated and intimate late-night vibe mostly featuring Bobbie alone with her guitar accompanied by a bass player; occasionally there is a whisper of strings from Jimmie Haskell who famously composed the cello and violin arrangement on Ode to Billie Joe. Gentry fans will find much to love in Bobbie’s short lived but brilliant turn as a jazz singer. The original 8 tracks to be supplemented by the ‘I Didn’t Know’ and ‘Hushabye Mountain’ demos recorded around the same time, this LP also features the previously unreleased Hushabye Mountain [alternate version]. 1.

Drop 2Captain BeefheartUnconditionally GuaranteedUMC1LP ColouredUniversally recognized as being the works of a true maverick genius, the canon of recordings by the late, great Captain Beefheart aka Don Van Vliet – often ably assisted by his Magic Band – rank amongst the most important and influential rock music ever created and continue to inform and influence musicians to this day whilst also garnering a following of new, young musically adventurous rock fans along the way.

Within these works the 1974 album “Unconditionally Guaranteed” is a true hidden gem which has been rightfully elevated to cult status over the years since its first appearance.

Originally released by Virgin Records in the UK (and Mercury Records in the USA) “Unconditionally Guaranteed” represents a fascinating pivot point within Beefheart’s recordings.

Known as he was for his more oblique amalgams of delta blues, avant-garde jazz and rock on albums such as “Trout Mask Replica” and “Clear Spot”, “Unconditionally Guaranteed” captures a musical moment when Beefheart deviates from that path and embarks on an exploration of more melodic soundscapes into which he continues to contribute his uniquely poetic lyrics delivered via his instantly recognizable vocals.

The 10 tracks on “Unconditionally Guaranteed” include a bevy of elliptical yet beautiful love songs such as “This is the Day” and the wonderful “Lazy Music” which is undoubtedly one of Beefheart’s most ravishing and mesmeric recordings. By contrast the album opener “Upon The My-O-My” is a great example of Beefheart and The Magic Band delivering their trademark, earthy take on rock at its very best.

On “Unconditionally Guaranteed” Beefheart is ably assisted by a fantastic line-up of the ever-changing Magic Band that includes key alumni such as Zoot Horn Rollo, Art Tripp, Rockette Morton and Alex Saint Claire. The album is produced by Andy Di Martino.

Unavailable on vinyl for over 20 years this Record Store Day 2021 reissue of “Unconditionally Guaranteed” will return this fantastic album to the vinyl racks where it should be.

Drop 1 Carla WhitneyChoker Campbell & The Super SoundsAtticLPCarla Whitney (with Choker Campbell and the Super Sounds), a relatively unknown soul gem that has flown under the radar since its release 46 years ago. Backed by Motown royalty Choker Campbell, the velvet-throated Whitney is like Aretha, Marlena Shaw and Vicki Anderson all rolled into one, flitting from cottony crooners to full-out funk stormers. Campbell was the leader of Motown’s live band, the saxophonist and conductor who kept any number of Motortown Revue shows driving along. A respected leader of men, and later a talented producer. Somehow in 1975 the nearly 60-year-old Campbell managed to find his way to Canada, where he hooked up with the little-known but dyno-voiced Carla Whitney in Toronto, producing the only LP she would ever make and issuing it on the then-obscure Attic label. For the first time since its original release Attic are reissuing the album for RSD 2021, at a lot cheaper price than the original copies, if you can find one (£500!) 180g heavyweight vinyl.SoulGospel500500

Drop 1Cat StevensHarold & MaudeUMC1LP Colour – 2 different colours are availableThis release is being offered in 2 different coloured vinyl, Orange & Yellow, the quantities for all territories will be split 50/50

The Paramount movie Harold and Maude was in December 1971 and in the almost fifty years since its release, has become a cult classic. Part of the reason for its success is undoubtedly its soundtrack, which is comprised exclusively of songs by Cat Stevens.

The majority of tracks are taken from the two 1970 Island/A&M albums, Mona Bone Jakon and Tea for the Tillerman, but Cat Stevens also composed two original songs for the film, “Don’t Be Shy” and “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out”, as well as performing instrumental and alternative versions.

The Harold and Maude soundtrack was first released in super limited quantities on multiple coloured LP versions in 2007 via Cameron Crowe’s Vinyl Films label (copies now trade for hundreds of dollars or more via Discogs). Finally presented in its first Island/A&M release, this new 50th anniversary Record Store Day , on coloured 180g vinyl, will boast some key differences:

Drop 1ChapterhouseRownderbowt (Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL4LP, Blue & White marbled vinyl, numberedChapterhouse was a British shoegaze band of the early 1990s, originally from Reading, England. Formed in 1987 by Andrew Sherriff and Stephen Patman, the band began performing alongside Spacemen 3. 
The Rownderbowt compilation, a highly-coveted 4-LP set features their biggest hits, rare tracks, various B-sides, demos and a remix of “We Are Beautiful” by Spooky.
Rownderbowt was originally released on cd-only by Dedicated in 1996 and serves as a reminder to Chapterhouse fans about what the band might eventually do should it decide to record again.
Patman quotes “We were writing a lot of material in the lead in to splitting up, and we ended up with a lot of songs which the label was not releasing because they wanted to have a hit single, and we were just not that type of band. And a lot of that ended up on Rownderbowt, and that represents that side of us more.”
Sherriff sees some of those demos and unreleased tracks as a blueprint for where Chapterhouse not only might have once gone, but could possibly go one day in the future..
Rownderbowt turns 25 in 2021.

Drop 1 Charlie ParkerBird in LAVerve4LPCharlie Parker spent more time in Los Angeles than anywhere outside of Kansas City and New York City. This historic release brings together previously unknown and unissued recordings along with rarities captured during three of the four California trips Bird made during his too-short life.
Among the crown jewels on this set are “How High the Moon” and “Fifty-Second Street Theme” from his historic engagement with Dizzy Gillespie at Billy Berg’s in 1945. Also included are three previously unknown performances from a 1948 “Jazz at the Philharmonic” concert at the Shrine Auditorium. Most intriguingly, the complete recordings of the infamous July 1952 “naked party” at the Altadena ranch of Jirayr Zorthian are included. Recording engineer Doug Benson has done a remarkable job of restoring these recordings to the highest possible audio fidelity.
Included in this set is an extensive essay by producer John Burton describing the circumstances under which these recordings were made as well as rarely-seen photographs from Bird’s trips to L.A.

Drop 1 Chet BakerCool CatTidal Waves MusicLPChet Baker (1929 – 1988) was an American jazz trumpeter, actor and vocalist that needs little introduction. Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s but his well-publicized drug habit also drove his notoriety (he was in and out of jail frequently before enjoying a career resurgence in the late ‘70s and ’80s). Chet’s career included collaborations with greats such as Elvis Costello, Charlie Parker and Van Morrison. Mr. Baker was the subject of many books and documentaries throughout the decades and he was even portrayed by Ethan Hawke in the 2015 film Born to Be Blue. 
Chet began his musical career singing in a church choir and his mother said that he had begun to memorize tunes on the radio before he was even given his first instrument. Peers called Baker a natural musician to whom playing came effortlessly. In the early 1950s he was chosen by Charlie Parker for a series of West Coast engagements…shortly after this, his song “My Funny Valentine” became a hit and would be associated with Baker for the rest of his career. Mr. Baker (with his quartet) was a regular performer at famous Los Angeles jazz clubs such as The Haig.
Chet Baker’s quartet released popular albums between 1953 and 1956 and he won reader’s polls at Metronome & Down Beat magazine, beating trumpeters Miles Davis and Clifford Brown. In 1956, Pacific Jazz Records released Chet Baker Sings, an album that seriously increased his visibility. During most of the 1960s (before heading to Europe more frequently) Chet recorded music that could be classified as ‘West Coast jazz’ 
From 1978 until his death in 1988, Chet Baker lived and played almost exclusively in Europe, returning to the U.S. once a year for a few performances. This was Baker’s most prolific era as a recording artist.
On the album we are presenting you today (Cool Cat) you’ll find Dutch recordings (recorded in 1986 & released in 1989). This rare gem of an album is comprised out of tracks written by some of the top jazz composers of all time (including Thelonious Monk) and played meticulously by Baker and his all-star line-up consisting out of Jon Burr (Yo-Yo Ma), Ben Riley (Sonny Rollins, Alice Coltrane, Thelonious Monk) and many others.
Be prepared for six sublime tunes that bring out the more intimate and touching aspects of the Chet Baker sound, a fantastic session where the master plays his themes with an almost religious surrender. On Cool Cat the listener is treated to a mix of both instrumentals and mid-sung tunes with very moving vocals. The trumpeter’s laid-back breathy approach and perfectly placed notes in combination with his superb rhythm section provides the listener with an unmistakable evidence that Baker still had considerable powers as a musician late in his career. Despite a seemingly chaotic and nomadic life, there is an unmistakable serenity emerging from the trumpeter’s sound throughout the album…a deep and touching beauty can be felt, marking this as one of Chet’s best from the period. 

Originally recorded in 1986 and released in 1989 on Timeless Records, the legendary Dutch jazz label run by Ria and Wim Wigt (who were patrons and friends of Chet till his sudden passing in 1988), Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the first official reissue (and the first ever UK vinyl release) of Chet Baker’s classic Cool Cat album. This unique album comes as a deluxe 180g vinyl edition (strictly limited to 500 copies) with obi strip. The jacket also features exclusive pics shot in Amsterdam in 1986 by legendary Dutch photographer Joost Leijen (known for his work with artists such as Art Blakey and Pharoah Sanders). Released exclusively for Record Store Day 2021 (UK & Europe) and available in participating stores on June 12th, 2021.

Drop 1Circle SkyDream ColourBMGLP. Heavyweight 180g VinylCircle Sky are Richard Norris and Martin Dubka. 

Circle Sky. An electronic band. Bright with light, sparking with positives. They’re mutable, fluctuating, flickering, pulsating, vibrating. Born in London, playing six nights a week, experimenting in an abandoned space in the city’s docklands. Constructing music live and improvised for endless hours, embracing sonic hypnosis. Each loop a twist on the last, new forms arising in real time. 

Circle Sky are operatives of their own station, building emotional, human music with tomorrow’s electronic equipment. The analogue warmth of the past meets the most advanced digital technologies. This is music to get lost in, melodies to sing, music to dance to. 

Circle Sky live is a swirl of pulsing lights, racks of LEDs, wires, synched vortexes exploding in technicolour, fronted by an entity of unknown origin. 

They strive unapologetically for something beautiful. There’s something holistic about their manipulation of voice, tone, reverb and space. A new journey into melodic synthesised music.

Circle Sky. Embrace the future. Make it colourful.
Drop 2Clash, The If Music Could TalkCMGx2 LP Vinyl“If Music Could Talk” was a promo album released by The Clash in 1981, featuring interviews with all four members (Paul, Mick, Joe & Topper), conducted by long time band associate, Kosmo Vinyl, interspersed with music from the (as then) recently released Sandinista triple album. Until now, the album has never had a full release. Available across x 2 LP’s and pressed on 180g vinyl, the 2021 Record Store limited edition reproduces the original interview audio, as well as the full length tracks from the album (using the 2012 audio). The front cover features a photo of Augusto Cesar Sandino – the Nicaraguan anti-imperialist leader and forebearer to the country’s Sandinista movement who in turn provided the inspiration for the album – and a Pennie Smith photo on the reverse. Brand new artwork and liner notes come from Kosmo Vinyl. £1 from the retail price of each copy will be donated to War Child.PunkRock2500

Drop 1ComplexComplexVINYL REVIVAL1LP, orange vinylComplex were formed in Blackpool in 1968 and after a couple of line-up changes the band recorded this debut LP in a pub in Blackpool in 1970 as a 4 piece consisting of Tony Shakespeare (drums), Lance Fogg (bass), Steve Coe (organ), Brian Le (guitar, vocals). 

The idea was to release the recordings as a demonstration LP rather than a tape or waiting on one of the southern routed A&R man to show up at a live performance.

Only 99 copies were printed and sent out to major British labels with the hope of maybe securing a record deal, the remaining copies were sold at the bands shows in 1971 for a £1.

The original release has now become legendary amongst collectors of British Psychedelia with copies selling for in excess of £10,000.00

This 50th anniversary edition is limited to 500 (orange vinyl) copies.

Drop 1 Coterie, TheA Swing To FolkMunsterLPSplatter colour vinyl. The Coterie was an ephemeral folk group from Dimnagh, a southern suburb of Dublin, with hippy and psych touches from the late 60s.
They were signed by Emerald at around the age of 18. This label, which released folk music among other genres, had a distribution relationship with Decca until shortly before the latter was taken over by Polygram. Emerald released a single and the group’s debut and only LP, “A Swing to Folk”, a captivating record with simple instrumentation, beautiful vocals and harmonies that transport us to pastoral surroundings full of calm, peace and love.
The record has 11 tracks, most of them cover versions (including songs by the Beatles, Phil Ochs and Judy Collins/Leonard Cohen) and a couple of traditional folk arrangements. All the songs are performed in a simple, candid style that makes listening to them an almost mystical experience, supported by gentle guitars and keyboards in the background. Lack of promotion and slow sales of the record meant that The Coterie did not accomplish everything they deserved, and the group disbanded and fell into oblivion…until now!
“A Swing to Folk” returns to life, to envelop us with the warmth, gentle simplicity and beguiling melodies of its tracks.
Reissued now for the first time, over 52 years after its original release.

Drop 2 CrassChrist Alive! – The RehearsalOne Little IndependentLPOriginally recorded in 1982 in Crass’ rehearsal studio at Dial House, ‘Christ Alive’ documents the ofttimes gruelling process behind the making of a song. Given the exacting nature of Crass’ finished works, it’s illuminating to hear them battling out results that eventually gave them the structure to ‘Christ the Album’. After many hours spent in the studio, it was decided that Beethoven would be expertly weaved into the recordings. Call it Crasshoven if you like. This black vinyl pressing, limited to 450 units, will also see all profits donated to the Refuge, a UK charity working against domestic violence.IndiePunk500900

Drop 2 Dave DaviesBugGreen Amp Records / Red River Entertainment12″ vinyl, 180g Pink and Yellow 2LP If Dave Davies did nothing more than create the slash-and-burn power chords of the Kinks’ “You Really Got Me” he’d earn a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As it is, the younger Davies brother has accomplished much more. His first studio album in over 20 years finds Ray’s frequently overshadowed sibling reviving that rather charming ’70s device, the concept album–the plot here revolving around extraterrestrial visitation and brain implantation. Davies brings the idea of benign aliens a little closer in a collection that recalls some of the best trends of the ’60s and ’70s. He uses a rock template that harkens back to post-Tommy Who (“The Lie”), Mott the Hoople (“Whose Fooling Who”), and Deep Purple (“It Ain’t over ‘Till It’s Done”), sounding rather anachronistic as a result. The songs are engaging and show Davies to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, but they’re somewhat stuck in the way-back machine.RockRock500 UK / 400 EU1900-2000
Drop 1Dave Davies & John CarpenterVillage Of The Damned (Deluxe Edition – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)Concord / Craft1LP ColouredThe Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation then the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film. The set does however include the track, “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film. Interest in John Carpenter’s original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one of a kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes an all new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.SoundtrackSoundtrack5002,000

Drop 1Dirty ThreeOcean Songs:Deluxe BoxsetBella UnionBOXSET | 4LPIn March 1998 Australian trio The Dirty Three released their now iconic album ‘Ocean Songs’. In 2005 the band would be joined onstage by Nick Cave to play the album in its entirety at ATP festival in New York, a show that since has developed into near mythic status. In 2021, both of these recordings will be made available in a deluxe boxset as part of Record Store Day. 

Remastered for an enhanced listening experience, the boxset will feature 4LPs pressed on coloured vinyl – the original album on lovely ocean blue and the live album on violet. In addition the band’s guitarist Mick Turner has created new artwork including a giant 8 panel pull out poster with words from the band on the recording and the ATP performance and a secondary poster that includes lots of great photos from the show. All housed in a beautiful slipcase! 

Ocean Songs marked the bands first release with Bella Union and was the second-ever album released on the label, as detailed by boss Simon Raymonde, “An extraordinary record. Visceral, uncategorisable and runs on pure adrenalin and feel. Our first time working with the band, in fact our first time working with ANY band, and was only the second-ever album released on Bella Union back in 1998, a few months after we formed the label. 22 years later and listening to the album afresh, I am filled with emotion hearing these sounds again, as if it were for the first time. It is both vibrant and untamed as any record I’ve ever heard. Imperative listening.”

Dirty Three violinist and bassist Warren Ellis also recalls the albums somewhat rocky beginnings as the band were dropped by their previous label, “when we handed Ocean Songs in to Big Cat we were dropped. Luckily a deal was inked with Bella Union in an AA meeting between our manager and Robin Guthrie. Possibly the boldest album of our career. Symphonic in its conceit and 100% Dirty Three. Playing it live in its entirety only reconfirmed its audacity. I think this live recording might be my favourite Dirty Three album ever. That’s what I hear when I’m playing in the band. With Nick on piano it was the most beautiful blend of my musical adventures.” 
eve artwork from the guitarist Mick Turner, a pull-out poster and new band photos.

Ocean Songs is the fourth major album by Dirty Three, released originally in March 1998 by Touch and Go Records and Bella Union. Produced by Steve Albini and the band themselves, the album was recorded at Electrical Audio, Chicago, United States, during August and September 1997. The album also features David Grubbs on piano and harmonium on a number of tracks, while the cover art was designed by guitarist Mick Turner.

Only this time, the ‘Ecstasy’ EP was in fact, a precursor to their third album ‘ENERGY’ – released in August on Island Records. ENERGY secured the bands third Top 5 album and third album grammy nomination along with a further nomination for the single ‘My High’ ft. Aminé & slowthai 

ENERGY pits a raucous rhythm from an album of Brazilian library music against a sample of Eric Thomas, the same hip hop preacher whose words memorably appeared on 2013’s When a Fire Starts to Burn. A global spectrum of talented artists grace the record – and for the first time this includes rappers. Appearances from Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres, Aminé and slowthai sit comfortably alongside the legend that is Common. Other features include the inimitable Kelis who opens the album and Fatoumata Diawara who the boys have also linked up with previously. Cameroon’s Blick Bassy brings his own flow to the table while a powerhouse team of Kehlani & Syd ease the pace with their contribution.

Drop 2 Dream Syndicate, The Out of The Grey (Deluxe Edition)Fire RecordsLP1000 Black vinyl copies pressed, includes DL card w/ bonus tracks. 35-year anniversary re-issue of the Syndicate’s post hiatus reunion from ’86. The Dream Syndicate’s 1986 album ‘Out of the Grey’ is back on vinyl for the first time in 24 years. Deliciously remastered with new liner notes that feature interviews with Steve Wynn, Mark Walton, Paul Cutler and Dennis Duck along with rare photos and eight rarities from the era. Hidden inside of ‘Out of the Grey’ are some of Wynn’s strongest songs – “Slide Away” is delightful pop, “Now I Ride Alone” is moody and intense “like the hardboiled typewriting of novelists Jim Thompson, Ross MacDonald, and James Cain” that Steve dug back in July ‘85. The epic “Boston” imagines the era in which Van Morrison was holed-up in that city circa 1967-68 writing the songs that comprised Astral Weeks while “50 in a 25 Zone” is a vehicle for a band-driven, slow burn groove. Properly remastered for the first time since its initial release by engineer Jim Hill who had recorded the original ‘Out of the Grey’ but hadn’t overseen the mastering. “The Dream Syndicate has proven to be a massively influential force in the world of alternative rock” NPR.

The band are huge supporters of RSD having already released the first album “Elastica” and a BBC sessions album on the same day in previous years. It feels fitting that the Box set should also follow in their footsteps. The original singles were initially released in small limited numbers, because of this they sold out immediately making it difficult to purchase a copy. The singles all reached indie number 1’s and top 40 chart positions. The numbering on the original sleeves we’re individually printed by ourselves one evening after rehearsals.

Drop 1Elton JohnRegimental Sgt.ZippoUMC1LPAfter the rapturous reception for Jewel Box, Rocket/UMC/EMI are honoured to announce a strictly limited one-off bringing together of Elton John’s fabled Regimental Sgt Zippo album that was slated for release in 1968, but ultimately shelved.

For one day only, we enter a parallel universe where this, not Empty Sky, would have been Elton John’s debut album.

Recorded at Dick James Studios in Central London between late 1967 and Spring 1968, six of the 12 songs were released on Jewel Box, but five are here in their finished versions for the first time and a debut release for You’ll Be Sorry To See Me Go.

Overseen with customary forensic attention to details by Elton’s archive team, RSZ is an absolute feast for fans of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. Side 1

Drop 2 FfranconGwalaxia:Belleville 1315 / Machynlleth 1404AnkstmusikLPThis is a re-mastered, re-imagined and re-purposed physical album version of Welsh electronic artist FFRANCON’s ground breaking fusion of Detroit techno and rebel Welsh politics.
These tracks originally appeared online in 2020 as part of Geraint Francon’s ‘Machynlleth Sound Machine’ concept which grew out of the chance discovery that Belleville, the birthplace of Detroit techno, is twinned with the rural Welsh market town of Machynlleth, home to Owain Glyndwr’s rebel Welsh Parliament of 1404.
GWALAXIA.,as an album channels the rebelious spirit of these two places through the medium of electronic music, the result is techno music soaked in the collective haze of hundreds of years of Welsh history and southwesterly storms – a Cambrofuturistic take on a staple of Afrofuturism.
As the spirit of independence and support for the break up of the union grows in Wales and beyond GWALAXIA is a timely and important record release and is a timely and essential artistic statement of resistance and hope in the face of increasing political corruption and the growing danger to artistic freedom and creativity in the new post Brexit Britain.

Drop 1Finn AskewPeachPolydor7″Red coloured vinyl of Finn Askew’s highly anticipated debut ‘Peach’ EP exclusive for RSD. ‘Egotism’ has already been supported as Jack Saunder’s Next Wave on Radio 1 and had a huge start internationally across streaming partners. For proof that remarkable talent can flourish in the most unexpected places, look no further than Finn Askew. Hailing from a sleepy market town in Somerset, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter could scarcely be further removed from any sort of music scene, and yet he’s raising the bar for the rest of the industry with his soulful yet streetwise sound. Following his successful 2020 string of singles including ‘Old Love, ‘Peach’ and the undeniable ‘Roses’ – his debut single which shot him out of the gate and now sits on an incredible 9.2 million views – Finn has not only been growing in the UK, but after Taeyong from notorious KPOP group NCT shared Roses, saw him trend in Korea and pick up a dedicated following there that has propelled him globally and seen him establish himself on several Korean digital music charts. Tipped as a One To Watch for 2021 by The Line of Best Fit, the young Somerset artists, eclectic and varied range juxtaposes even the most melancholy lyrics with upbeat, heartwarming synths, guitar melodies and a enthusiasm, stretching way beyond Finn’s 19 years.Hip-hopAlternative1,000

Drop 1Flirtations, The Nothing But A Heartache’ b/w ‘Need Your Loving’Decca7″The Flirtations were South Carolina trio Lestine Johnson with sisters Ernestine and Shirley Pearce. They originally recorded for the Old Town label as The Gypsies but despite a change of name and several changes of label success eluded them. After winning a local talent contest in 1968 they packed their bags and headed for England, where they supported Tom Jones and signed to Deram. ‘Nothing But A Heartache’ was their second release for the label and while it failed to chart in the UK it reached No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1969. The wonderful ‘Need Your Loving’ would have remained an album track but requests from Northern Soul clubs saw it finally released as a single in 1972. Until now original UK copies of that original single have been extremely hard to come by and have been in very high demand. Both sides were written by the Deram ‘in house’ team of Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington, who would have considerable chart success in the mid ‘70s with The Rubettes, for whom they wrote the No. 1 hit ‘Sugar Baby Love’.SoulSoul6001000
Drop 1 FocusSingles, Deep Cuts & Bbc Live (Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL2LP, coloured vinyl, numberedDutch rock group Focus – founded in late 1969 – was the first continental European rock group to reach a worldwide audience and to tour extensively in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and Japan. The band scored two worldwide hit singles, sold several million albums and was the first Dutch rock group claiming Melody Maker’s Brightest Hope award for 1972. One year later, Focus hit the US Billboard charts with two singles and two albums simultaneously. During their prime years, Focus featured some of the most talented musicians coming out of The Netherlands during the 70s: guitarist Jan Akkerman, keyboard player Thijs van Leer, bass player Bert Ruiter and drummer Pierre van der Linden.
This double album combines original single versions, some deep cuts from their albums and recordings from their 1973 BBC In Concert performance at the London Paris Theatre.
SINGLES, DEEP CUTS & BBC LIVE is available as a limited edition of (TBA) individually numbered copies on coloured vinyl (colours to be announced).
Drop 1 Fontaines D.C.Live at Kilmainham GaolPartisan RecordsLP On 14th July 2020, Fontaines D.C. played a selection of songs from their ‘Dogrel’ and ‘A Hero’s Death’ albums live at Kilmainham Jail as part of the Other Voices Courage Series.

It is an old cliche for historians to ask ‘if these walls could speak, what would they tell us?’ Fortunately, the walls of Kilmainham Gaol tell us exactly how they feel. Faded with time, but still stubbornly there, are the messages of Ireland’s revolutionary generations. Over one door are the quoted words of Patrick H. Pearse, poet and leader of the Easter Rising, thundering ‘Beware of the Risen People.’ Perhaps the most evocative piece of graffiti in the prison reads simply ‘A Few Men Faithful and a Deathless Dream.’

The album arrives on 180g heavyweight black LP in a gatefold jacket. Dublin historian Donal Fallon has written an essay on Kilmainham Gaol which is featured on the back cover. Includes an exclusive poster.

Hubbard’s quintet pays special tribute to Miles Davis that evening with a powerful rendition of “All Blues”. A well-recorded showcase of bop and blues played with harmonic intelligence and soul.

Drop 1GeorgiaSeeking Thrills (After Hours)Domino RecordsLPGeorgia is very happy to announce Seeking Thrills: After Hours, a limited 12” to be released on Record Store Day 2021. 

Where Seeking Thrills was Georgia’s exploration of the dancefloor in pop form over 12 tracks, After Hours sees Georgia going deeper into the club setting, with four remixes of her own songs designed specifically for club use. After Hours gave Georgia the opportunity to go deeper into those influential club sounds that were at the core of Seeking Thrills. Condensed into 4 tracks, this 12” is not only collection of tracks rooted in house and techno, it’s Georgia’s homage to the dance culture that was so instrumental in the creation of Seeking Thrills.

Drop 1 Girls In SynthesisShift In StateHarbinger SoundLPWith the release of their debut album at the end of 2020, Girls In Synthesis proved that the hype was very much justified when it came to the bands tag as one of the most exciting in the UK. A concise and rabid blast of harsh post-punk, and released during the COVID crisis, the album eerily managed to capture the mood of the moment, despite being written and recorded in 2019. Rightly so, it was released to stunned reviews and featured in many ‘Best of 2020’ end-of-year lists. Always a band with a militant work ethic, the first fruits of their fevered writing and recording period throughout 2020 are borne here with ‘Shift In State’. Featuring 5 brand new tracks, the mini-album sees the trio return to the experimental edge of their early, and highly sought after, EP releases. The lead track ‘Containment’, an abstract, bleak and circular slice of obtuse-punk gives way to an explosive and skewed dub remix featuring languorous horns and industrial sounding percussion. Following on, ‘… But Still you Wanted More’ retains the dub minimalism and adds trudging, nihilistic lyrical content alongside churning, saw-sharp organ. ‘Calm Waters’, the groups’ first foray into a harsher, electronic landscape, brings to the forefront a crushing, relentless drum machine backbeat and woozy, warped bass hooks. Finishing on ‘Don’t Try’, this song sees the band return to their more familiar white-heat blast of post-punk. Shards of harsh, splintered guitar and pounding drums help push the theme of gross governmental incompetence well and truly into the listener’s brain. Their incendiary live shows being hugely missed by fans, UK and EU dates are currently being signed off for late 2021 with further key releases also being lined up for release later in the year. Never a band to sit still, ‘Shift In State’ sees GIS, once again, surmount all obstacles and proves them to be one of the most forward-thinking and tireless acts in the UK.

This is an era that is often less considered by music lovers and horror movies fans, but this LP is here also to remind the listener that there’s a lot to be rediscovered. This second volume is in fact even more diverse and eclectic than its predecessor, as it goes from classic-era Goblin sounds (Yell) to funk-rock (Funky Top), from romantic atmospheres (St. Helens) to the 80’s electronic vibrations (Sleepwalking, Tenebre, La Chiesa). To make this release even more special, the last two tracks on side B are presented for the first time as a new edit (La Chiesa) and a new suite (Nonhosonno – Killer On The Train – Arpeggio-End Title, from the comeback reunion of “Nonhosonno”, the film directed by Dario Argento in 2001)!

Of the twenty-two performances on the famed Europe ’72 tour, the first night in Paris on 5/3/72 has always been considered one of the best. This is proven by the fact that four songs from this concert were included on the seventeen-track, seminal platinum-selling Europe ’72 album.
Featuring an “Other One” that comes out of Truckin’ and weaves in and out of other thematic and deep-space jams, as well as a side trip to Me And Bobby McGee, this is some of the Grateful Dead’s best, most inspired improvisation. The performance also includes five songs sung by Pigpen on what would be his final tour, including a massive Good Lovin’ which allows Pigpen to do what he does best: hold the audience in the palm of his hand while they hang on his every word. Mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman and mastered for vinyl by GRAMMY ® Award-winning engineer David Glasser. Produced for release by David Lemieux.

Drop 2HeartbreakersL.A.M.F. – the found ’77 mastersJungleLPOn release in 1977, Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers’ ‘L.A.M.F.’ had a mastering fault, widely condemned as a ‘muddy mix’. Track Records went bust and the master was lost – so subsequent releases were compiled from outtake or re-mixes. Forty-four years later, the master has been found in an attic, and the classic punk album ‘L.A.M.F.’ can at last be heard as the band and producers intended! FOUND IN AN ATTIC – a punk rock archaeological discovery – a copy master of the original 1977 Track Records tape, without ‘mud’!
This classic punk album, recorded in London by the New York band featuring two New York Dolls, was always controversial – and not just for the acronym. Upon release on Track Records in 1977, it was widely condemned for having a ‘muddy mix’ – later found to be a mastering fault. When Track went bust the following year, manager Leee Black Childers burgled the office and liberated the tapes – he found everything except the master-tape.
Subsequent releases were remixed from the multi-tracks or compiled from outtake mixes – the ‘lost ’77 mixes’ in 1994 being well-received and the version most known ever since. A lift from the vinyl didn’t achieve much clarity. Meanwhile, fans found the ’77 cassette version didn’t have the infamous ‘mud’, nor did certain European vinyl matrixes. 
In 2020 a chance meeting led to Daniel Secunda’s archives. He was an old-school music biz pioneer who became a Track Records director – and the Heartbreakers ‘L.A.M.F.’ co-producer. In amongst his many tape boxes were two with no artist name, marked ‘Copy Master 12.7.77’. They turned out to be a crystal-clear ‘L.A.M.F.’, just as the band and producers intended it.
Sadly, in August 2020 the Heartbreakers co-lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Walter passed away. He was the last of the Heartbreakers ‘L.A.M.F.’ line-up – Johnny Thunders died in 1991, Jerry Nolan in 1992, and Billy Rath in 2014. Walter’s punk memoir autobiography is to be published in paperback in May 2021.

Drop 1 HooverphonicA New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular Remixes Ep (12″ Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL12″, purple vinyl, numberedThis year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Hooverphonics debut album “A New Stereophonc Sound”. Music On Vinyl in cooperation with Sony Music and Alex Callier are releasing 4 Hooverphonic remix Eps. Each EP represents a Hooverphonic album; A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular, Blue Wonder Power Milk, The Magnificent Tree and Presents Jackie Cane.
Alex Callier selected the best remixes of their songs for each remix EP. All 4 remix EP’s are scheduled for release in 2021 and are cut on 45 RPM and pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
Hooverphonic are a Belgian band that formed in October 1995. Though originally categorized as a trip hop group, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be described as a lone genre, but rather encompass alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and a mixture of others. The band originally called themselves Hoover, but later changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name and to avoid any legal issues with the vacuum cleaner company.

Since their formation, Hooverphonic’s lineup consisted of bassist Alex Callier, guitarist Raymond Geerts, and various lead singers. Geike Arnaert (1997–2008, 2020-present) has recently re-joined the band.

Hooverphonic were supposed to represent Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. However, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will instead represent Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
The band achieved international recognition through the inclusion of the Stereophonic track “2Wicky” on the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1996 film Stealing Beauty. “2Wicky” also appeared on the soundtracks of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Heights. The track’s main riff is sampled from Isaac Hayes’ recording of the 1960s hit “Walk On By”.
“Inhaler” is, not least thanks to those wonderfully fanning out guitars, still a missed world hit.
Remix duties are fulfilled by drum ‘n bass producer Dj Pulse, owner of the Creative Wax label, and the late Hector Zazou. Both gave some LTJ Bukem-esque vibes to “Inhaler” and “2 Wicky”.
Furthermore, Alex Callier and the band re-recorded both songs and added some extra strings to “Inhaler”.

“A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular remixes” is available on Record Store Day.Only 2000 individually numbered copies on solid purple are pressed.

Drop 1Jacques RenaultSky IslandsLet’s Play House12″ LP, Blue Coloured VinylFor his third full-length album, Jacques Renault explores his craft through the
format of the classic late-night radio megamix. It’s a tour de force that finds him
blending his quick-cutting DJ sensibilities with his crate-digging, drum-chopping
disco-chemist bonafides into one wham-bam party of pastiche.

This is Renault as we know him—but at hyperspeed, tearing through twenty-
three tracks in under half an hour. And while it’s a head rush of his trademark

funky drums, sassy horns, playful synths, it’s arranged as an album, with
songwriting and structure at the fore.
Imagine it as a flip on the script for Renault’s most loved club 12-inches of the
past, which luxuriate in long-form, stretched-out grooves that burn for hours, fills
that ride for days. Instead of on pulling a thread for six, seven minutes, he
romps around in a bouncy ball pit, plucking out whatever captures his
imagination for a moment, then diving back in to discover another buried

Drop 1 Jah WobbleOld Jewish East End of London Dub/ Lovers Rock DubJah Wobble Records12″ Single – Double A-sideI grew up in Stepney , along with its neighboring ‘village’ Whitchapel, it was still, at that time, a quite a Jewish (mainly Ashkenazim ), area. Most of the Orthodox Jews had gone to Stamford Hill and Golders Green by then. You could still clearly feel, the echo of the Shtetl, especially around the many street markets. The influx of Jewish immigrants largely began in the late 1800’s You can easily imagine in the late 1800 early 1900 what the East End of London was like, in particular a big mix of Jews and Irish, (from Cork in particular). Both had fled to London through urgent necessity , the Jews because of pogroms in the East of Europe, the Irish, first due to the Famine, in the mid 1800’s, and from then onwards in the search for labour. One lot came from the East and the other lot from the West. Both parties arrived via The Thames, into the port of London. That mix of Jews , Irish and others made for a ‘heady brew’. A very heady brew indeed. I make this tune with huge affection in memory of those huddled masses. 2 Tracks in total – a double A-side 12″ single. On royal blue vinyl.Reggae500500
Drop 1Jah Wobble & FamilyGuanyinJah Wobble RecordsLPI thought it was time that I worked with the family again….my wife Zi-Lan , and sons John and Charlie, ( Tianqi and GZ Tian, respectively ). The last time we recoded together was on ‘Chinese Dub’, back in 2008 which sold very well and this could be seen as a sequel to Chinese Dub. On this album Zi-Lan plays Chinese Harp, flute and sings, John (Tianqi) my eldest boy plays drums and percussion, keys and Chinese dulcimer and Charlie (GZ TIan) , my younger son plays Chinese Violin and sings. Guanyin is the Great Female bodhisattva. ‘The Goddess of Mercy’. This album has a unique mix of Chinese and Western styles. I am back playing a Fender Precision , which is the type of bass that I first played , when I started playing in the 70’s. It’s a real ‘Hi-Fi’ record . I wanted this record to have high production standards. Red Vinyl LP.World500500

Drop 1James RayJames RayVINYL REVIVAL1LP, Turquoise vinylNever released in the UK. 
Original was only released in the US IN 1962.

Born in Washington DC in 1941, the 18 year old James Ray arrived in New York, and made an immediate impact by recording “Make her Mine” on the Galliant label, under the stage name Little Jimmy Ray. Despite this promising start, a difficult two years followed which saw him destitute, pounding the city pavements, occasionally singing in clubs and sometimes on street corners. On one such club night, Rudy Clark befriended him and was instrumental in making introductions to Gerry Granahan of Caprice Records who then signed him as James Ray.

His first recording was one of Clark’s songs, “If you gotta’ make a fool of somebody,” which was a huge success in the U.S. on both the pop and R&B charts. It reached the attention of Paul McCartney, who, having heard the song in Brian Epstein’s record shop, included it in the Beatles’ Hamburg set and claimed that the R&B meets waltz sound arranged by Hutch Davie influenced the song “Love me do.” Freddie and the Dreamers would also cover this track after hearing a stirring performance by The Beatles at The Cavern Club , taking it into the top 5 in the UK singles chart.

The Beatles connection intensified as George Harrison, who had purchased the album in 1963, would go onto revive “I’ve got my mind set on you” almost 25 years later taking the single to number 1.

Ray recorded this eponymous album in 1962 and passed away soon afterwards leaving behind this soulful collection of R&B classics.

Drop 1Japanese Television3 (Remixed)Tip Top Recordings12″Record Store Day exclusive limited edition 500 press on neon green heavyweight vinyl featuring big hitting remixes from James Lavelle’s UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor), James Welsh (Phantasy Sound), Space Age Freak Out (John Paynter), and International Teachers of Pop (ERC / Moonlandingz) who add a whole new dimension to JTV’s critically accalimedthird EP and a further RSD physical exclusive with JTV’s remix of Internatianal Teachers Pop’s Flood The Club (Themes Water Remix). 3 (Remixed) is on vinyl for the first time especially for RSD and JTV say: “During lockdown we thought it would be cool to create a remix project with artists we admire. We love collaborating. It’s exciting to have them reimagine our tracks” say Japanese Television – who formed with a shared vision of creating a modern psych space-surf soundscape. 

Gabe Gurnsey add his trademark hard-hitting beats and minimalist synths to otherworldly psych single ‘Bee Cage’ and has already had three plays from Lauren Laverne and two from Gideon Coe on 6 Music and the mix was made John Kennedy’s ‘X-Posture Hot One. A groove-laden treat, Gabe adds layers of astral beats to create something wholly other. “We heard Gabe’s remix for Working Men’s Club and loved it, we’re stoked he’s on board.” This is followed by James Lavelle’s masterful UNKLE Reconstruction of ‘Falling Spikes’ (the original was named as one Amy Lame’s BBC 6 Music Favourite Tracks of 2020), which delivers the trademark eclectic UNKLE sound and twist. “James is a living legend and as big fans it’s an honour to have him remix”, say JTV. With additional mixes from Space Age Freakout (“we love the dirty Manchester electronic vibe”), International Teachers of Pop (“We’re big fans of ITOP. Sheffield’s finest”); and James Welsh (“Like Gabe we found James through Erol Elkan’s Phantasy Sound label. He’s delivered absolute dynamite”), say JTV.Japanese Television surf on a swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-rock guitars, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, ritualistic drums. In 2020 the band released their five track EP III slice of motorik space twang. Preferring to work in a village hall deep in the wilds of the east British countryside, JTV again recorded live to an old 8 track machine with The Wytches’ Kristian Bell following the success of EPs I & II. The band has been played over 70 times on BBC 6 Music including a session with Marc Riley and have seen acclaim from the likes of NME, So Young, Clash, Arts Desk, WFUV in New York, and The Wire. Only Japanese Television are 100% space surf. Their cosmic glow remains extraordinary.

At that time, he entered a recording studio in an attempt to secure a record deal as a solo artist. The recordings have been long forgotten and unheard until now. The Adams Brothers, who gained notoriety in Mike Judge’s Tales From The Tour Bus episode on Paycheck, produced the songs and worked as Paycheck’s band. These recordings showcase Paycheck’s considerable talent long before the music world took notice.

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the Record Store Day 2021 release of a strictly limited edition newly re-mastered 180 gram vinyl LP edition of the classic debut solo album by YES vocalist JON ANDERSON, Olias of Sunhillow. Released in July 1976, the album was a conceptual work recounting the story of an alien race on a journey to find a new world following volcanic destruction on their home planet. All music on the album was written and performed by Jon Anderson and the recording took place at Anderson’s Buckinghamshire home studio whilst Yes were on hiatus following the tour to promote the album Relayer. 

Initially recorded on an 8-track tape machine, the arrangements were then re-recorded on to a 24-track tape machine. The album saw Jon perform the music entirely alone, teaching himself to play keyboards and acknowledging the influence of suche legendary musicians as Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz and Vangelis on his work. Indeed, it was even rumoured Vangelis performed on the album, something the maestro would deny in interviews.

Olias of Sunhillow was released by Atlantic Records in the summer of 1976 in an elaborate gatefold sleeve designed by David Fairbrother-Roe and was a top ten album in the UK. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original album master tapes and was cut at Abbey Road studios. The limited edition LP release fully restores the stunning original gatefold sleeve and inner bag artwork.

Released for the first time on vinyl, ‘Wyatt At The Coyote Palace’ is pressed on double gold vinyl. An essential vinyl release of the Throwing Muses’ mainstay’s 2016’s CD and essay book that featured stories from “her life’s most perception-altering junctures” (NPR). “As memoirs, her albums are so intensely personal… as art, they’re arguments for the value of unapologetic individuality” Pitchfork. “This music reminds you how alone you are; it consoles you through its insolubility, comforts you by jabbing you in the chest and letting you know how complex the struggle is, how inaccessible we are to each other but just how universal our pain can be.” The Wire. This sonically rich and fragmented record references to Hersh’s past material and sees her perform on guitar, bass, drums, piano, horns and cello. There’s a mysticism and sense of life wonderment throughout ‘Wyatt At The Coyote Palace’ that also has death as a central theme rather than the contemplation of death itself it’s reaching the end of something and beginning a new life.

Drop 1Lathums, The Live at Blackpool TowerIsland12″“The audio for this release has been taken from The Lathums’ one off livestreamed gig at Blackpool Tower’s Circus Room, which amassed 4,000 unique viewers back in October 2020. With the UK lockdown hitting right at the start of the band’s rise last year, for many this exclusive white vinyl RSD release will be the first glimpse of their electric live performance.
Passage from Blackpool Tower PR:
The Lathums return to live performance for the first time since their sold-out February tour to play the historic Blackpool Tower, with the show streaming in FREE HD audio and video on Wed 28 October at 8pm. The four-piece’s life-affirming, beg-for-a-ticket pre-Covid live shows recruited a fervent and growing, all-ages, UK-wide fanbase, supporters who helped the band swerve the wreckage of 2020 to stay firmly on the rise. The special, one-off show by the sea goes out as a ‘thank you’ from The Lathums to those stood by their side. Glancing back over a year that saw the band use time locked out of live venues to lock-in to intense writing and recording sessions, Live From Blackpool Tower, will see the band freed to play longstanding favourites alongside recent releases, including punchy single, I See Your Ghost, and other tracks from the forthcoming Ghosts EP (released Fri 30 October, Island Records). Filmed in the Tower’s ornate Circus Room under Covid-Safe conditions prior to Lancashire’s Tier 3 status being confirmed, The Lathums took the rare opportunity to let loose and get loud.”

Drop 2 LoveEverybody’s Gotta LiveHigh Moon RecordingsLPLove, led by the brilliant and complicated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Arthur Lee, are widely regarded as one of the most unique and influential American rock bands of all time. Their 1974 studio album ‘Reel to Real’ featured the band at the height of their rock/funk/soul incarnation, and the 2015 reissue – on High Moon Records – featured 12 previously-unreleased outtakes, alternate versions and alternate mixes from the original album sessions. This special RSD release features five of the ‘Reel to Real’ bonus tracks on vinyl for the first time, including three original Lee compositions that were basically unknown before the 2015 reissue, even to Love fanatics: the sweet and soulful “You Gotta Feel It”, a catchy rock-pop tune called “I Gotta Remember’, and “Do It Yourself”, a blast of high-energy funk driven by Lee’s strutting vocals and tight horns. The ‘Everybody’s Gotta Live’ EP opens with the powerful, unadorned version of “Everybody’s Gotta Live” that closes the original album. In a testament to the musical genius of Arthur Lee, “Everybody’s Gotta Live” has had a life of its own: including a pivotal scene in the award-winning film ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and a heartbreaking interpretation on Mac Miller’s posthumous album ‘Circles’. Also featured here is an alternate take of “Singing Cowboy”, a great track from Love’s catalog updated here as an urgent rocker, and an alternate version of “Everybody’s Gotta Live” in a rousing full-band performance.RockPsych4002500

Indeed, there’s a real down-home, unpolished luster to End of Amnesia, both in execution and in songwriting, that gives it a timeless, old-fashioned pallor. And yet there’s also something just slightly off in the songs, a strange, disembodied quality that seems to come at least partly from an ulterior place, be it real or imagined.

Drop 2March Violets, The Big Soul Kiss – the BBC recordingsJungle2xLPLimited edition in violet vinyl double-LP – twenty-three tracks recorded for John Peel and other BBC programmes over six separate sessions, including nine unreleased songs. THE MARCH VIOLETS came out of Leeds in the early 80’s, initially as label-mates mates of Sisters of Mercy. Releasing six singles, they were a constant presence at the heights of the UK indie charts. They didn’t get around to recording an album – their only long-players, both in the UK and USA, were singles compilations. They eventually signed to a major and were groomed for a USA breakthrough, but found they were asked to make too many compromises. Thankfully, their career was well-documented by the BBC recording six sessions – three for John Peel, and one each with Kid Jensen, Janice Long and Richard Skinner. Chronicling their development from 1982 to 1986 with lead singers Simon, Rosie and Cleo, these sessions include nine unreleased songs and alternate versions of their indie hits. Here is the unheard history of The March Violets. Side One: 1. Radiant Boys, 2. Steam, 3. 1 2 I Love You, 4. Grooving In Green, 5. Crow Baby, 6. The Undertow. Side Two: 1. Strange Head, 2.

Drop 2 Miles DavisMiles Davis Champions From The Complete Jack Johnson SessionsCMGLP VinylMiles Davis had a deep love and respect for boxing, seeing deep parallels between “the sweet science” and his own relationship with music. One of Miles’ favorites of his own recordings was the 1971 soundtrack to the Bill Cayton documentary about Jack Johnson and he was inspired by the political and racial subtext of the legendary boxer’s saga. Culled from the celebrated expanded project The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions released in 2003, and name-checking a number of pugilistic legends (“Ali,” “Sugar Ray,” “Duran,” “Johnny Bratton”), these funk-infused recordings rock harder than anything that Miles put to tape. Featuring a sterling line-up of musicians (Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin, Dave Holland, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Cobham) and a legendary cover photo of Miles in the ring captured by Jim Marshall, the release finds this music issued on vinyl (in brilliant yellow) for general release for the first time ever.JazzJazz1250

Drop 1MintyOpen WideThe state51 ConspiracyLPIn 1992, infamous fashion designer, model, performance artist and Taboo club promoter Leigh Bowery formed the band Minty (named after the Polari word for ‘snooty’) with friend, designer Richard Torry, wife Nicola, and promotor and performer Matthew Glamorre. Bowery was a massively influential pop art icon and experimental performance artist; his very existence has left a huge legacy upon popular culture. Minty was his musical vehicle to bestow his unique brand of art performance onto the world. To mark 25 years since Leigh’s passing Minty are re-releasing their renowned 1997 album ‘Open Wide’. The single and album will be reissued in a collaboration between original label Candy Records and The state51 Conspiracy. Inheritors of the Post Punk and New Romantic club scene, Bowery and crew led a vicious and uncompromising charge into challenging not only values and morality but celebrity culture itself. At a time before the internet, it was scandalous talk and sensational press articles that brought the band to the attention of the authorities. Their famously avant-garde and shocking onstage scatological, blood and gore performances prompted The Sun newspaper to describe them as the “sickest band in the land” – a statement of which Leigh was immensely proud. The UK’s draconian, indecency and public licensing laws at the time soon led to bans, legal action and police raids at venues. Useless Man opened every show, Leigh, a huge figure in floral dress, face mask and wig heaved his way onstage and belted out the lyrics over a throbbing live rock band. He stomped and boomed across the stage never missing a beat. At the crescendo he hauled himself onto a table, laid back and ‘gave birth’ to Nicola in a shockingly graphic performance of which Boy George, who had seen it many times, said that it “never ceased to impress or revolt.” In November 1994, Minty began a two-week-long show at London’s Freedom Cafe, audience members included Bjork, fashion designer Alexander McQueen and artist Lucien Freud, but it was deemed too shocking and Westminster City Council closed down the show after only one night. This was to be Bowery’s last performance. On New Year’s Eve 1994, the nightclubs, parties and discos of London froze in shock as news of the death of Leigh Bowery swept through the city and then the world. The legendary club freak, aesthete and iconic performance artist had gone. However, Bowery and his conceptual art and creativity live on as the remaining band members continued his legacy under the leadership of Nicola Bowery and Matthew Glamorre: playing live shows and even supporting Pulp, at their request, on their ‘Common People’ tour of 1995. Their album Open Wide was released in 1997 with the same aesthetic fierceness and artistry of which Bowery would be proud. The album was started in a period of great excitement when the bands notoriety was climbing – but the actual writing and production was dramatically truncated by the personal and cultural trauma of Leigh Bowery’s sudden death. Abandoned then re-discovered, further writing and recording took place throughout the grieving and reflecting process. Matthew describes the creation of the album as “Part primal scream therapy. Part death disco. Part belly laugh at the absurdity of it all.” The album was received as ground breaking and was described as “a New Wave masterpiece – the long lost conclusion of Post Punk “ by DJ and S-Express front man Mark Moore. It has also been quoted as inspirational by both Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson. The album will be reissued for Record Store Day in a triple-gatefold package showing the full image of the original landscape shoot artwork across its six panels and printed on two heavyweight clear discs with labels featuring further imagery of Leigh Bowery from the original Fergus Greer photoshoot. Additional material designed and made in The state51 Atelier workshop will accompany the reissue.Left-Field/ ExperimentalPop300200

Recorded before and between lockdowns – like all RSD releases in 2021 – this album is a taste of things to come. The Near Jazz Experience is used to working quickly, getting things out. These recordings are fresh, ready to be heard. 
FIVE YEARS was in the NJE canon for a while before being recorded. It received a ‘soft’ digital release this January in honour of Bowie’s passing five years before. It is introspective and thought provoking, as the occasion deserves, sitting well with the band’s more trademark avant-jazz sounds, a direction that Blackstar was going in. 
Dive into NOUGHT TO 60 for a journey into chilled grooves, Ethiopian-inspired jazz and Motorik beats – all Near Jazz Experience originals.
The NJE logo on the album cover was commissioned from graphic designer Dave Towers, known for his work with The Charlatans among many others.
This is a 12” mini-album on black vinyl with download code in a full-colour sleeve, strictly limited to 500 copies.

Drop 2 OST Tangerine DreamThe Keep SoundtrackUMC2LPTangerine Dream’s soundtrack to the 1983 Michal Mann film The Keep on vinyl for the first time. Finally getting its official release as part of the band’s boxset Pilots Of Purple Twilight in 2020 UMC are pleased to offer this as part Record Store Day 2021. The second movie Tangerine Dream scored for Michael Mann deserves a book on its own, given the almost mythical status that fans worldwide have attributed to the work for over 35 years. The story is as follows: after Tangerine Dream delivered the master tapes for The Keep album in November 1983, Virgin planned a world wide release for February 1984, but this was scrapped in December 1983 when it appeared that the movie was a box office flop in the United States. Up to that point, not one copy on vinyl (including test pressings) had been made, as the master tapes had not yet been prepared for a ‘EQ production copy’, which is a correctly equalised tape specifically for a vinyl and cassette release. While Virgin held copyright, the original master tapes were shelved for more than 35 years. As is the case with other released Tangerine Dream soundtracks (such as Thief, Firestarter, Heartbreaker and Shy People), The Keep represents a stand-alone album and differs from the raw musical cues delivered to Mann (that ultimately fell into the hands of bootleggers) by the band in early 1983.

Drop 2OST The Radiophonic WorkshopPossum OSTRoom 132LPOriginal soundtrack to a new British horror film by the pioneering UK electronic research lab. Astonishingly considering their 50 year career scoring for radio and television, this is the first time The Radiophonic Workshop have ever scored a feature film for theatrical release or collaborated on a major score together. They’ve risen to the challenge admirably, concocting a soundtrack that mixes pastoral flute with dread synth tones and bowed percussion that connects this to England’s hidden reverse of Coil as much as the masters of Italian Giallo soundtracks. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve designed by Julian House with sketchbook insert, the soundtrack includes all the cues from the feature film as well as 9 bonus tracks. The soundtrack features sound elements and drones from the Delia Derbyshire archives, the pioneering producer of the original Doctor Who signature tune. These sound elements, discovered in boxes of tapes in the late composer’s attic, have been restored and used in the foundations of the sound track and sound design.Left-Field/ ExperimentalSoundtrack5001500

Featuring fan favourites Country Girl and Dolls, it was the last album to include guitarist, Robert ‘Throb’ Young, who later departed the band after 22 years. Contributions to the album came from Alison Mosshart (The Kills) and Will Sergeant (Echo & The Bunnymen). To mark the occasion, frontman Bobby Gillespie has added seven tracks previously released as b-sides, including a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s To Live Is To Fly, and has re-sequenced the album to flow across 4 sides of vinyl in an expanded 2LP set – which will be released on Red coloured vinyl.

The Truth is widely regarded as one of Prince’s most underappreciated hidden gems. The x12 trk album was originally released as an accompaniment to the 1998 triple album Crystal Ball, which marked the first time that Prince released an album totally independently. The Truth was also the first Prince album to be labeled “acoustic,” though it does contain electronic instruments and elements, and it gave listeners an unprecedented chance to hear his songwriting and voice in a stripped-down presentation. This release marks the first time The Truth is available on vinyl with gorgeous, foil-embossed artwork designed by Prince’s long-time art director Steve Parke.PopBlues1500

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the Record Store Day 2021 release of a strictly limited edition newly re-mastered 180 gram white vinyl LP edition of the acclaimed Procol Harum album “Grand Hotel”. 

Released in March 1973 the album was the first to feature a line-up of Gary Brooker (piano, vocals), Alan Cartwright (bass), Chris Copping (organ), Mick Grabham (Guitars) and B.J. Wilson (drums) and was remarkable for its musical diversity and was hailed as “A masterpiece of musical perfection and lyricism” by the NME weekly music paper. 

From the sumptuously orchestrated title track, to compositions such as For Liquorice John, Fires (Which Burnt Brightly), Bringing Home the Bacon, Toujours L’Amour and Robert’s Box, “Grand Hotel” defied classification but remains one of Procol Harum’s best loved and most admired works.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original album master tapes and was cut at Abbey Road studios. The limited-edition LP release fully restores the stunning original gatefold sleeve and the deluxe lyric book which came with initial copies of the album.

Drop 1 Raybeats, TheThe Lost Philip Glass Sessions (Featuring Philip Glass & Michael Riesman)Ramp LocalLPThe Lost Raybeats. The Raybeats went in to Green St. Recording on June 4, 1982 with Philip Glass, Michael Riesman, and Kurt Munkacsi without really knowing what to expect. We wouldn’t know what we had until thirty years later. By 1982 Philip Glass was well on his way to reaching an international audience. At that time, New York City was the kind of place where anything could happen, and it did. Painting, music, dance, filmmaking, and theater were all blending in to one another in exciting and unprecedented ways. Our neighborhood, that didn’t go any further north than Houston Street, was now reaching unimaginable places. Graffiti was in the galleries, Kraftwerk was in Hip-Hop, and what was once thought of as classical art music was now being played in rock and roll clubs. It was in this wildly creative atmosphere that it made perfect sense that Philip Glass would meet up with the Raybeats and rework “Jack The Ripper” by Link Wray. “Pack Of Camels” was the Raybeats song that would get the fullest Philip Glass treatment. There’s nothing minimal about it. It was the first Raybeats song to have vocals and it’s a wild ride through downtown New York City by way of “Einstein On The Beach.” “Black Beach” was intended to have an element from the Cyclone, the legendary roller coaster ride from a long lost Coney Island. Don had the idea that we should record the sound of the Cyclone and the screams of the riders and use them as a drum break. Why not? The only problem was that our own screams were the loudest thing on the tape. We recorded “Black Beach” on June 5, the second day of recording. Gene Holder, from the dB’s, ended up playing bass. The Raybeats handle the A sections and Philip arranged the keyboards for the B sections. The ride out is a hypnotic swirl of groove and interlocking keyboard figures played by long time Philp Glass Ensemble member Michael Riesman. “A Sad Little Caper” started with a riff from Danny Amis. Pat plays the melody and Philip arranged the song with a call and response figure on the keyboard. The song would end up on the Raybeats second LP, It’s Only A Movie, in a completely different form. The name of the song came from an off handed comment that guitar great Bob Quine made about the Raybeats, “a sad little band….” Quine was a friend and lasting influence. The last song we recorded was “Jack The Ripper.” The Raybeats’ was pretty much in place by the time Philip got his hands on it. It’s one of the great guitar instrumentals, originally recorded by Link Wray of “Rumble” fame. There wasn’t much to add to this one, it was already filled up with sheets of Jody Harris guitar feedback and a driving beat, but Philip gives it a pulse that drives the song in to new territory. ClassicalLeft-Field/ Experimental4001500
Drop 1 Reggae SpecialsReggae BeatlesBurning SoundLPReleased on 180m gram vinyl. As Beatlemanina approached its peak, Jamaican music was undergoing a transition that started with ska, and then morphed into rocksteady, before assuming its ultimate form as reggae. Inevitably these cultures collided, with artists such as the Paragons and Marcia Griffiths establishing a tradition of creating dynamic reggae covers of the Beatles’ hits that continues to this day. Issued for the first time on vinyl, ‘The Reggae Specials’ extends this lineage, as some of Britain’s black belt reggae musicians set out on a series of version excursions that include some of the Fab Four’s best loved cuts.ReggaePop500

Drop 1 RepublicaRepublica (Translucent Red Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL1LP, available in Blue OR Red vinyl, sticker denotes colour, numberedRepublica is the debut studio album by English band Republica. It was released in 1996. Three singles were released from the album: “Bloke”, “Ready to Go” and “Drop Dead Gorgeous”, with the last two being huge hits.
Upon its release, Republica received generally positive reviews from music critics and was a commercial success. It peaked at number four on the UK Albums Chart. In the US, it reached number 153 on the Billboard 200 and was also successful in other countries, such as Germany, The Netherlands and New Zealand.
BuzzFeed listed “Ready To Go” at number 37 in their list of The 101 Greatest Dance Songs Of the ’90s in 2017. The song is featured in dozens of commercials, movies, and series, f.e. “Baywatch”, “Captain Marvel”, “Malcolm in the Middle”, “Queer As Folk” and many more. Fun fact; “Ready to Go” is the theme song for the Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster at Cedar Point in Ohio.
Republica turns 25 in 2021. This year on Record Store Day, Music on Vinyl in cooperation with Sony Music release the album on vinyl for the first time; A limited 25th anniversary edition on translucent blue vinyl (and a limited 25th anniversary edition on translucent red vinyl).

Following the enthusiastic critical and commercial response to their pREServed reissue series, which has produced hundreds of previously unheard recordings from the band’s master tape archive, The Residents now explore the original multitrack tapes for their seminal 1970s output. 

Produced under lockdown conditions, the group present sixteen never before heard alternate versions, unreleased curios and long-forgotten oddities.

Includes an eight minute concentrate of the legendary ‘Rusty Coathangers For The Doctor’ tape, plus a demo and alternate rendering of the classic ‘Satisfaction’ single.

Part of the ongoing pREServed reissue series, ‘Leftovers Again?!?’ is, we are told, a small taste of further album-by-album multitrack explorations the group intend to present at some as-yet undisclosed point in the future.

Drop 1shameLive in the FleshDead Oceans12″Having toured the world over following the release of their debut album ‘Songs of Praise’, shame made a name for themselves as one of the UK’s best live bands. At the beginning of 2021 the band released their James Ford-produced follow up Drunk Tank Pink, earning them a Top Ten chart position and cementing them as one of the heavy-hitters of the indie music scene.

‘shame – Live in the Flesh’ is a collection of 7 songs filmed and recorded at London’s historic Brixton Electric in October 2020. It is the only opportunity to hear Drunk Tank Pink’s explosive material live on vinyl, played with all the energy and relentlessness that shame bring to the stage. With so many cancelled or rescheduled tours in the last year, it’s a timely reminder of how important it is to capture live recordings, and who better to do that than shame?

While portraying the scene of a nightclub, he sings about hisfeelings under the pandemic.The B-side features “By Swallow Season” -a mid-tempo jazzy boogietrack, with sentimental lyrics over a floating mellow wah-wah guitar and melancholy saxophone. “How many years does it take to return to normal~”, Sakamoto sings, reflecting on the situation. The EP ends with “Don’t Tinker With History”, a boogie-funk song which opens with a James Brown-like guitar riff.An ultimate soul classic in contemporary Japan, the echoey steel guitar and the dry strumming blends in with the tight groove, along with his straightforward lyrics like “People and events that werepretended it didn’t exist”.PsychRock2501000

Currently out of print and wont be repressed in this form. 3000 pressed, 500 for the UK. This Dilla driven classic is available for RSD 2021 in a one-time only golden pearl splatter vinyl pressing. The contributions of J Dilla to the world of hip-hop can’t be overstated, and nowhere is his legacy more apparent than his work as a member of Slum Village. A founding member of the trio, (Alongside rappers T3 and Baatin) Dilla provided the group’s distinctly esoteric, free-wheeling sound. By the time Fantastic Volume II hit Dilla was well on his way to his status as a hip hop legend having produced cuts for Common, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Fantastic Volulme 2 had fans and many critics saying that Slum Village, and Dilla in particular, may “single-handedly save rap music.” Perhaps that statement is hyperbole but many consider Fantastic Volume II to be Slum Village’s finest work.

Drop 2SquidNear The WestwayWarp Records12″At 5pm on Wednesday 7th April, Squid are set to take part in an exciting and extraordinary live to vinyl recording challenge. 
The Bristol experimental band will be recording two new songs onto a two track EP, live and direct to vinyl at Metropolis Studios -and BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq show is giving fans the chance to listen in on this unique live performance. 
Recording ‘live to vinyl’ is the original process that artists used to record music for public consumption. There’s no modern technology, it’s simply playing and recording the songs in one take. In today’s digital age, the art of capturing music live to vinyl has long been forgotten, but Metropolis have recreated the experience using their unique cutting lathes. 
Part of the magic of recording music live to vinyl in this way is that Squid must get it right first time. Throw in the added pressure of an audience listening live at home via BBC 6 Music, this is a recording moment unlike any other in recent history. 
This special event is taking place as part of this year’s Record Store Day launch celebrations. 
Once recorded, these live tracks are set to be fast tracked onto the presses by Sound Performance and fans will be able to get a copy on 12” vinyl exclusively from independent record stores on Saturday 17th July. 
Arthur from Squid, said ahead of the recordings “We’ve been busying ourselves away on some scores, arranging orchestral versions of two of our favourite tracks from Bright Green Field. The process is the same as ever, starting off with no clue of what we’re doing, stumbling along together, each inputting our ideas into the music until it starts to take shape. We’re so excited and also quite terrified to release this little gem for Record Store Day 2021.” 
Not only does the live radio broadcast of this event make this an unparalleled moment in recording history, but the studio and band are also navigating extraordinary social distancing measures due to COVID-19. Gavin Newman, from Metropolis Studios said ““as you would expect, Metropolis has had to go above and beyond Covid protocols over the last 12 months in order to operate effectively and support our incredible roster of clients. Being able to provide that safe platform from which artists can create, perform and broadcast has been overwhelming. We sincerely hope that this live to vinyl experience with our friends at RSD, Warp Records, Sound Performance and BBC 6 Music will help kickstart the wider live community with a newfound confidence for the year ahead”.

Drop 1 Status QuoThe Rest Of Status Quo (Coloured Vinyl)MUSIC ON VINYL1LP, purple vinyl, numberedThis is good early Quo material, compiled in the late 1960s when the band was with Pye. Quo – Mania was in full effect. Band-member Alan Lancaster at the time: “I don’t think there’s a rock band quite like us in the sense that we put everything into it. Sometimes it’s obvious we’re getting off on the audience as much as they get off on us. They identify. So do we:’ That hard work and energy is there in abundance in this album. Things change fast in the pop music world but what clearly hasn’t changed over the years is the sheer energy, hard graft, application and dedication of four guys who called themselves Status Quo but in fact helped change the whole face of rock/pop with a sharp injection of heavy metal. Try the track Something’s Going On In My Head, Or Nanana. No, better still —try all of them.

Drop 1Steve ParksMovin In The Right Direction C/W Just Ask MeDYNAMITE CUTS7″ Piv sleeve, heavyweight vinylDYNAMITE CUTS and its series of amazing 45s have unleashed another Gem for RSD. This Rare groove club classic has now been shrunk down to a stunning 7”, for the first time. The LP was first released in 1981 along with a single.- which is now a mega-rare collector’s items; selling for £200 plus.
Steve Parks’ big song on this LP is the epitome of Rare groove music in the 90s. almost every club and radio would play this every night – it would be banging out of The Mud Club, Astoria, The Wag and all the other hot, sweaty, but very brilliant, clubs of the 80’s and 90’s. This is definitely on the ultimate soundtrack to that funky era.
This one-off LP and it iconic cover by Steve Parks has been reissued before but never as a 7” and never with a full colour sleeve, Dynamite Cuts’ mini version does both, delivering on-point artwork and finely tuned mastering.
Steve Parks is a very private man; this iconic cover only happened because his friend Rico, who coerce him into wearing the shirt as Steve didn’t like it at all. The only way to do it was to take him to Leon’s BBQ by the beach and buy them both a bucket of tips and corn bread.

Drop 1 Steve Reid Ensemble (featuring Kieran Hebden)Spirit WalkSoul Jazz Records2LPThis album is released as a special one-off exclusive blue double vinyl edition for Record Store Day 2021. 
Out of print for nearly 15 years, this album was recorded at the start of the long-relationship between Kieran Hebden and drummer extraordinaire Steve Reid. Soul Jazz Records had begun to release Reid’s music in 2000, reissuing much of his early catalogue of radical, deep and spiritual jazz music from the 1970s when an encounter between electronic music pioneer Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid effectively launched a new career for jazz drummer Reid – a man steeped in history having played with John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Fela Kuti, Motown and much more. Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid released a set of ground-breaking albums together in London, New York and Africa (including four on Domino Records) and continued to work together up until Steve Reid died in 2010. This album launched the start of this new connection between the two very different and yet connected artists – a mixture of electronic and jazz sensibilities like no other. The album ‘Spirit Walk’ contains an updated version of Reid’s seminal ‘Lions of Judah’ (originally released on Reid’s classic ’Nova in 1976), ‘For Coltrane’, and the stunning and epic 15-min ‘Drum Song’.
The album comes with complete original artwork, including innersleeves (featuring an interview with Steve Reid by Gilles Peterson).

Drop 1 Tales Of TerrorTales Of TerrorCall Of The VoidLP1500 copies pressed on Red vinyl, A5 Flyer & DL card. “Straight out of The Dead Boys / Stooges school of intense, f**k-it-all, snarl and self-destruct. Recommended.” Maximumrocknroll. Often cited as a major influence on the key bands of the grunge era (Nirvana, Melvins, Mudhoney etc.) Tales Of Terror’s one & only LP is an overlooked classic of 80s NorCal punk rock. Available for the first time in more than 30 years, Kurt Cobain’s 32nd-favourite-album-of-all-time is chaotic and charismatic in equal parts; the band’s story is tinged with tragedy, but the music they played was life-affirming. Wild, heads down proto thrash metal meets punk excess; think early Guns n’ Roses meets Iggy at the bar from a band whose trajectory was cut short after the death of guitarist Lyon Wong in 1986. A cobweb dispersing buried treasure that stands alongside the debut of The Damned and draws a shaky line through grunge to At The Drive In and way beyond. A super rare release, unavailable for over 30 years; remastered and ready to be cranked up to full volume. “Mid-tempo driving grunge rock that gets pretty chaotic” reported Flipside.

Of the epic new track “Sick Of Me”, frontman Shane Greenhall says: “My worst enemy, my biggest critic, the hardest, meanest person I know is sometimes me. This song is a duel, a constant battle with the person staring back at you in the mirror and not liking what you see and feel. Accepting your patterns, your learnt behaviours is EXTREMELY important as only then can you become a better version of yourself! Truth sometimes hurts as honesty ALWAYS prevails, whether you’re ready for it or not.”

Drop 1Tim McGraw, Tyler HubbardUndividedBig Machine12″ Vinyl Opaque Orange coloured vinylMusic superstars Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard of duo Florida Georgia Line have joined forces on ‘Undivided’. Described as a personal call to themselves, the track combines their distinct voices and serves as a call for self-reflection and unity during the most uncertain times of 2020/21.
Soul-searching on his bus while waiting out a positive COVID-19 quarantine, Hubbard was inspired to write ‘Undivided’, focussing on the positive with a feel-good message of hope and optimism. As he recruited McGraw for a song about coming together, that’s exactly what they did.
The pair performed the song earlier in 2021 for TV special ‘Celebrating America’, in celebration of Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.

Drop 1Timebox‘Beggin’’ b/w ‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’Decca7″Originally named The Take 5, Timebox originated from Southport, Lancashire. The quintets inclusion of organ and vibraphone hints at their Soul and Jazz leanings, as does their choice of repertoire. Prior to signing to Deram they recorded an excellent version of Dizzy Gillespie’s ‘Soul Source’ for the Piccadilly label. Their faithful cover of The Four Seasons ‘Beggin’’ gave Timebox a very brief taste of UK chart success when it peaked at No. 38 in August 1968 but it remains a firm favourite in Soul clubs. Timebox’ Soul credentials are evident from their choice of follow-up, an infectious cover of Bunny Sigler’s 1966 single ‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’, originally released on the Parkway label but not issued in the UK until 1976. It was penned by Leon Huff, who along with his song writing partner Kenny Gamble, was responsible for creating the Philly Soul sound in the 1970s.SoulPop6001000

Drop 1 Tom Petty & The HeartbreakersAngel DreamWarner Records LabelLP Cobalt Blue VinylTo celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of She’s The One, we are releasing a remixed, remastered and re-imagined version of this album. The original album included several songs that were left off the original Wildflowers album (recently included as the All The Rest disc in the Wildflowers & All The Rest re-issue), so this re-release is an appropriate ending to the campaign celebrating the Wildflowers-era. Ryan Ulyate (Tom’s long time engineer and producer) has remixed the audio, and the song selection is designed to work as a TPHB album, rather than a soundtrack album. Four unreleased tracks have been added; the rocker “105 Degrees” (written by Petty), a cover of JJ Cale’s “13 Days”, “One of Life’s Little Mysteries” (another Petty original), and an instrumental (“French Disconnection”) in the same vein as the instrumentals on the original album. An extended version of “Supernatural Radio” is also included. The new title is a reference to one of the stand out tracks on the album, for which there will be a video. The new album will have brand new artwork, and this version will replace the existing physical versions of She’s The One, although the original release will remain on the DSP’s (in addition to “Angel Dream” being available digitally).RockRock2000TBC

Drop 1ToyahFour From Toyah (40th Anniversary)Cherry RedLP• Cherry Red Records is delighted announce the newly remastered release celebrating Toyah’s 1981 chart hit EP “Four From Toyah” as a special expanded coloured vinyl mini-album exclusively for Record Store Day 2021. 

• Produced by Nick Tauber and introducing a new band line-up the EP was led by the song ‘It’s A Mystery’ which became a hit and entered the top 40 UK singles chart, rising to no.4 in February 1981 and earning a silver certification from the BPI in March 1981. ‘It’s A Mystery’ became one of Toyah’s signature songs and is still performed to this day.

• This expanded release presents all four tracks from the original 7” EP on side one of the vinyl – remastered from the original master-tapes for the first time ever. 

• Side Two includes the four original demo/incarnations of the songs which all started life in previous recording sessions, and again are remastered from the original mastertapes for the first time ever.

• It’s A Mystery began life as a song by the late 70s experimental synthesiser group Blood Donor with guest vocals by Toyah. Two other demos (Jack & Jill and The Merchant & The Nubile were recorded at Park Gates Studios in Battle, Sussex by the ‘Blue Meaning’ band line-up, the location where they also recorded The Blue Meaning album. The never before released demo of Angels & Demons was recorded in late 1980 at Eel Pie Studios, Eel Pie Island. 

• The release carries stunning new artwork including previously unseen shots from the classic photography for “Four From Toyah” which saw Toyah in four different striking and meticulous looks representing all four songs.

• Strictly limited edition ‘jungle green’ coloured vinyl echoing Toyah’s make-up from the front sleeve shot. 

• Brand new inner bag features rare and unseen imagery of Toyah.

• Official lyrics for the four songs (EP version) are also included.

Drop 1 TrapezeLive In Houston – Texas 1972PurpleDouble LP• The core of Trapeze can be traced back to Midlands band Finders Keepers in the late 1960s, featuring future Whitesnake guitarist Mel Galley, future Judas Priest drummer Dave Holland and the mercurial talents of Glenn Hughes on bass and vocals. After being discovered by The Moody Blues, they were snapped up for their own label, Threshold Records.

• Trapeze would record three classic albums for Threshold; the self-titled “Trapeze” in May 1970, “Medusa” in November 1970 and “You Are The Music • We’re Just The Band” in 1972.

• By the time of their second album, Trapeze had scaled down to the classic power trio of Galley, Holland and Hughes, finding their definitive sound with a unique blend of blues, soul and hard rock, earning them plenty of fans in America. 

• One of Trapeze’s major strongholds in the States was Texas, so we’re lucky to be able to present a complete 1972 show from Houston recorded live in concert to promote their third record. Featuring ‘Way Back To The Bone’, ‘You Are The Music’ and ‘Keepin’ Time’ from “You Are The Music • We’re Just The Band”, the remainder of the set was taken from second LP, “Medusa”. This double live LP includes truly epic renditions of ‘Jury’, ‘Seafull’, ‘Your Love Is Alright’ and the title track of “Medusa”.

• Glenn Hughes would leave Trapeze to join Deep Purple in 1973, with Mel Galley and Dave Holland carrying the Trapeze banner for the remainder of the 1970s, periodically reforming this classic three-piece line-up. Glenn would eventually form Hughes / Thrall, join Black Sabbath, enjoy a successful solo career, collaborate with artists as varied as Gary Moore, Joe Lynn Turner and the KLF, founding Black Country Communion and California Breed, and currently fronts The Dead Daisies.

Drop 1Tune-YardsW H O K I L L4ADLP (Pink, Green & Black Splatter Vinyl)Tune-Yards’ 2011 breakthrough second album whokill will receive a limited edition pressing on splatter vinyl to celebrate its 10th anniversary on Record Store Day

Upon its original release the album received accolades from The Guardian, Pitchfork, NPR, The New York Times, and it won the Village Voice’s prestigious Paz & Jop critic’s prize.

The brainchild of Merrill Garbus, tUnE-yArDs began life as dictaphone recordings which were then painstakingly mixed down on GarageBand to create her opening gambit, the debut album BiRd-BrAiNs. Initially released on a limited LP run with screen printed sleeves recycled from thrift store bargain bins, the album was formally released in late 2009. Alongside the record, she also started to build quite a reputation for her live performances. Using loop pedals, two mics, a snare drum, a ukelele, her distinctive voice (she’s spent time teaching singing in Kenya) and crucially, a second band member, Nate Brenner on bass. The album, w h o k i l l, marks a time when everything came together in to one cohesive whole. Recorded in a studio and influenced heavily by her moving to Oakland, California, she and Nate made an album that delivered on her early promise. Lyrically Garbus explores constructs of femininity and sexuality with the threat of violence that lurks on the streets where she now lives, while the energy of their show has been translated perfectly to record.

Drop 2TV Smith & Richard Strange1978Molecular ScreamLP1978 Written, Produced and Performed by TV Smith and Richard Strange. 1000 pressed on transparent red vinyl, gatefold sleeve with lyric inner sleeve and DL card. The tracks on this album have never been officially released before now. The eight songs on this album were recorded in 1978 on a 2-track stereo Revox A77 tape recorder. The recordings are unashamedly analogue, using one microphone and guitars plugged directly into the tape recorder. Bouncing down tracks irreversibly as they went on, forced to make creative decisions that could not be undone. Some hard choices had to be made with the mix, but with no record company meant no record company agenda. TV Smith and Richard Strange could write and record whatever they wanted – and did! It has been an enormous pleasure to rediscover these recordings, the result of a friendship of two artists emerging from broken bands and each about to embark on a lifelong adventure in words and music. TV SMITH – I wasn’t having a lot of fun in 1978 when Richard asked me to collaborate on a song he was writing called “Summer Fun.” I was in the final stages of songwriting for the second Adverts album “Cast Of Thousands,” a project that already seemed doomed to failure given an unenthusiastic record company, a band in the throes of falling apart, and a dwindling audience – but my creative juices were in full flow and I was ready for something different. I already knew Richard, of course, from the Doctors Of Madness, who I’d followed in the years before punk when I was still living in Devon and they were one of the few bands to come and play in the area. I considered them a warped poetic glam band with gothic leanings, and was slightly surprised when the song I’d been invited to work on turned out to be a kind of California surf pastiche. But I was game to get involved, and after we’d finished it and ventured forward with regular writing and recording sessions over the following weeks it soon became clear that “Summer Fun” was just a gateway drug, and the songs that were emerging from our combined forces were going to quickly become much deeper and much darker // RICHARD STRANGE – Watching the remnants of a musical dream being swept away by the juggernaut of corporate punk rock in 1976, I felt a combination of jealousy and resentment towards many of the key players who had been responsible for our demise. The Sex Pistols had supported my band Doctors of Madness early in their career, and nicked not only our future but £12.00 from a pair of trousers in our dressing room in Middlesbrough Town Hall! The Jam, who supported us over four shows at London’s fabled Marquee Club, were how I imagined The Who would be if they’d joined the Young Conservatives. Warsaw, our go-to support band in Manchester, had just changed their name to Joy Division, and Johnny and the Self-Abusers, our Scottish flag wavers, had become Simple Minds. All were being feted by the all-powerful music press, while we were being buried. But there was one punk band for whom I never had anything but the greatest affection …The Adverts.

Drop 2Various ArtistsToo Slow To Disco presents: YACHT SOUL – Cover VersionsHow Do You Are?2LPThis is the new compilation by TSTD/DJ Supermarkt with Soul/Funk Coverversions of Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems!

TSTD returns with another trip into the musical past of the sundrenched Westcoast: This time DJ Supermarkt unearthed 17 Soul & Funk Coverversions of original Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems. As slightly expected, the The Afro-American musicians add a heavy dose of Funk and heavenly Soul to the game. The original tracks are covered by big Soul & Funk acts like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson, but also forgotten acts like The Ebonys, Leslie Smith, Side Effect. And you can find tracks originally performed by the big league of the Westcoast, like The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Wings, and even The Beach Boys, alongside lesser known acts like Ned Doheny, Bill LaBounty, Airplay!

Most tracks are from the late 70s/early 80s, but failed to become big hits and fell under the radar. Like Chaka Khan doing a seriously funky version of Fleetwood Mac’s „Everywhere“ (from an unreleased album recording), next to obscure reworks like Leslie Smith’s version of „Nothin’ You Can Do About It“ by the overlooked Airplay (Jay Graydon and David Foster). There are especially surprising versions here, like Millie Jackson’s gospel-like rendering of „This Is It“ by Kenny Loggins/Michael McDonald, or Billy Paul’s „Black Power“-influenced version of Paul McCartney/Wings’ „Let Em In“ and the rare cover of The Beach Boys’ „God Only Knows“ by Betty Everett. Overall another TSTD collection of smooth, sunny, extremely soulful and funky tracks, that needed to be dug-out to be heard again. This is Bottled Sunshine!

Vinyl comes as usual in gatefold sleeve with liner notes, download code and 180g heavy orange double vinyl.

Drop 2Various ArtistsMay The Circle Remain Unbroken: A Tribute To Roky EricksonLight In The AtticLP * Pressed on special RSD color wax
* Includes bonus limited edition flexi of an ultra rare recording performed by Roky Erickson
* Pressed at RTI

Texan Roky Erickson was one of the true mind-blowing pioneers of psychedelic music. The original leader of the Austin-based 13th Floor Elevators formed in 1965, Erickson and band invented a brand new style or rock & roll, one that was slightly unhinged while it explored the consciousness-expanding influence of LSD on music. After three years, the group imploded with mental issues and legal challenges, ending with Erickson being incarcerated for several years in the Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Rusk, Texas. When he was released in the early ’70s the musician continued on his own trail, recording songs that had come to him in his far-flung cerebral wanderings. Erickson, who passed away May 31, 2019, is now celebrated on this 12-track tribute to one of the most original rockers ever. 

The participants range the whole world of modern music, and each chose one of Erickson’s originals to stamp their own imprint on. They include Billy F Gibbons, Lucinda Williams, Mosshart Sexton (a/k/a Alison Mosshart & Charlie Sexton), Neko Case, Mark Lanegan & Lynn Castle, Jeff Tweedy, Margo Price, Gary Clark Jr & Eve Monsees, Ty Segal, Chelsea Wolfe, The Black Angels and Brogan Bentley. The album is co-produced for release by Bill Bentley, executive producer of the 1990 Roky Erickson tribute album Where The Pyramid Meets The Eye on Sire Records, and Matt Sullivan, co-founder/owner of Light in the Attic Records.

The songs range from Erickson’s debut iconic original, “You’re Gonna Miss Me,” recorded when he was a member first in The Spades and then the 13th Floor Elevators during the early ’60s in Austin, to some of Erickson’s later songs, like “If You Have Ghosts,” which heard him exploring some of the outer limits of the human psyche. Each new recording is a stunning modern take on the sound that Roky Erickson gave the world over a half-century of writing, recording and touring. No one has ever equaled those explorations.

This truly is the music of the spheres, as Erickson once sang about his sound, as seen through the eyes and ears of those who are united in their love and respect for a person who dedicated his life to rock & roll. Roky Erickson, through the trials and tribulations of a man both imbued with greatness and haunted by darkness, never quit in his quest to share with others what he heard and saw. As he sang on the 13th Floor Elevators last recording, “May the circle remain unbroken.”

It was picked up and released by many RSD territories, resulting in social media posts from Amsterdam and London to Nashville, Canada, Massachusetts, Sweden, Ohio, Boston, Illinois, Bratislava, Los Angeles, Portugal, Australia and many more, all using the hashtag #behindthedykes. Besides that, the album was No.1 in the Dutch compilation chart the week after its release, making it the best sold RSD release of Drop 2. And that same week it entered the US Billboard compilation chart at no.5, after being tipped by Rolling Stones Magazine as one of their favorite RSD2020 releases to look out for. So more than enough reasons for a second volume, to be released on RSD 2021. The concept is the same: Much sought after Dutch beat and psych rarities on a 2LP colored vinyl, with amazing artwork, track-by-track liner notes and band photos. All songs on volume 2 have been newly transferred and remastered from the original master tapes, some in their original mono versions, including 2 newly unearthed and previously unreleased gems.

Drop 1 Wailers & U-ROYMy Cup Runneth OverTsosume RecordsLPIn 1976, U Roy was the new attraction in Jamaican music. With his first hit Wake the Town six years earlier, he had imposed a new style on the Kingston soundsystems, which consisted of taking up local hits by speaking in “voice over” around the choruses. That year he took on the Wailers’ Soul Rebel, which he transformed into the Natty Rebel, which would become his absolute hit until today. Fifty years later, U Roy, who is approaching 80, delivers an entire album around the Wailers discography. A project initiated by the American producer Gary Himelfarb alias Doctor Dread, who arrived in Jamaica in 1977 and who signed the biggest names of the time on his label RAS Records, from Black Uhuru to Jimmy Cliff via Bunny Wailer, Inner Circle or Gregory Isaacs.

In the fold of Sanctuary Records, which also owns reggae reissue giant Trojan Records, Doctor Dread has obtained permission to use the Wailers tracks recorded by Lee Perry in the early 1970s. He then locked himself in a Kingston studio with U Roy, who recorded 14 songs in four hours (!), Freestyle as in the great times. Bunny Wailer, the last survivor of the original trio, was also present to witness this historic session, which pits two icons of Jamaican reggae from the 70’s against each other.

Drop 1WarpaintThe Fool. Andrew Weatherall SessionsRough Trade2LPOn the completion of the recording of The Fool, Andrew Weatherall was given access to the album’s master tapes to work on mixes for the finished record. The track Baby, along with Warpaint’s iconic single Undertow, were both mixed by the Guv’nor and appeared on the finished album that was released in 2010.

For the first time ever, this Record Store Day edition brings together all the mixes Weatherall created while working on the project, including a never released before, finished version of Jubilee.  

“I remember that one of the main reasons why we wanted Andrew Weatherall to mix the Warpaint album was because we loved his brilliant work on the Primal Scream remix of “Higher Than The Sun”. I know that we discussed this particular track with Emily and she knew it of course and also loved it. I think it was a key reason they agreed to let Andrew do the mix.” – Geoff Travis – Rough Trade Records

When the album was released it featured 16 unreleased recordings from Zevon’s personal archives. It also included 6 never before released songs.  The release also included a 5-part interview with KGSR’s Jody Denberg from  the year 2000.  Now, for the first time ever these recordings will be reissued on vinyl.

Drop1 Wasted YouthReagan’s InJackpot RecordsLP2000 pressed worldwide on Lime Green opaque vinyl for RSD 2021. Early Influential LA Hardcore Band’s 1981 Debut Album. Cover Artwork by Pushead (Metallica, Misfits). Colored Vinyl Pressed at RTI With Original Lyric Sheet. Sourced From The Master Tapes. Often compared to Black Flag, Wasted Youth was a great punk band in its own right and was among the exciting bands to come from the Los Angeles punk scene of the late ’70s/early ’80s. If you’re looking for slickness, you won’t find it on Reagan’s In, a ten-song EP that first came out in 1981. Reagan’s In is about as raw as it gets — not only does the production (or lack of production) reject slickness completely, but also, the lyrics are extremely raw, direct, and gut-level. This is true of snarling socio-political rants like the title song (an inflammatory attack on President Ronald Reagan), “Born Deprived,” and “Fuck Authority,” as well as the crude, off-color “Uni-High Beefrag.” Wasted Youth’s lyrics are about as subtle as a sledgehammer, but then, subtlety isn’t what the L.A. residents were going for — like Black Flag, the Circle Jerks, and other L.A. punk outfits of that era, Wasted Youth follows its gut instincts. And on this very angry LP, those instincts serve the band well.

Drop 1 William TylerNew VanitasMerge RecordsLPThe concept of “vanitas” in medieval art refers to the juxtaposition of macabre symbols of death with material ephemera in order to illustrate the impermanence of earthly things. What struck me about this was not the representation of death in a macabre/morbid way, but rather that very sense of ephemerality and impermanence. Reading an article about the history of ephemera in art led me to the concept of vanitas, and I wanted to find a way to pivot that in a more, well, hopeful direction. But these paintings force us to bear witness to the contrasts of life, death, and impermanence, and if 2020 has taught me about anything, it is this concept of “bearing witness” both on a personal and political level. 

With these new songs, I really just wanted to create a sort of mood board for where my head and soul have been at the last few months. The sound dissolves into another sound, the image into another image. Time passing, transience, change. Although “static” means lacking movement, static sonically is almost the literal opposite: it is transience, noise, change.

Drop 1 WipersYouth Of America (Anniversary Edition: 1981-2021)Jackpot Records2LP3000 pressed. Double Colored Vinyl (Clear w/ Black Swirl) LP Set With Deluxe Foil Gatefold Jacket. Featuring Bonus LP Of Rare Mixes And Tracks From The 1981 Sessions. Includes Original Rejected Cover Artwork. Audiophile Pressing at RTI. Cut by Kevin Gray. Simply obliterating any conception of the Wipers as a mere punk band, Greg Sage released this follow-up to “Is This Real?” in 1981 – a sophisticated, overwhelming response to the evil times marked by the turn of the decade. Broken up into six long songs, “Youth of America” is a much colder, harrowing experience than the teen angst of their debut. Vocally, Sage comes off as sleep-deprived and forsaken, snarling not only at his own predicament but at the predicament of the entire world. The centerpiece of the album is the title track, a dire ten minutes of paranoia and angst that gave Sage the space to showcase his wildest, darkest playing yet. Track listing: LP 1: 1 Taking Too Long, 2 Can This Be, 3 Pushing The Extreme, 4 When It’s Over, 5 No Fair, 6 Youth Of America. LP 2: 1 My Vengeance, 2 The Story, 3 Scared Stiff, 4 When It’s Over (Alternate Version), 5 Pushing The Extreme (Out-take mix), 6 No Fair (Out-take mix), 7 Youth Of America (Out-take Mix).RockPunk5003000

Wyvern Lingo Live In-Store, Bowie’s ‘Brilliant Adventure’ Set, And A Pixies Live Box Set

Hi everyone
Hope all is well with ye all… Today’s newsletter will mainly be absit releases for November 26th (Black Friday) but let’s start with the releases we have in the siopa for this Friday the 12th of November.. We have new releases from THE CHIEFTAINS, DAMON ALBARNIDLESJONI MITCHELLCOURTNEY BARNETT, ROD STEWARTKYLIE MINOGUEERIC CLAPTONDAVE GAHAN & THE SOULSAVERSELVISTHE CHICKSGOV’T MULE and a 80s and 90s Vinyl compilation.. On the reissue front there is the NIRVANA ‘Nevermind : 30th Anniversary’ vinyl, 2cd and CD Boxset releases, CAT STEVENS / YUSUF’s ‘Teaser and The Firecat’ anniversary releases, as well as a reissue from PARAMORE on silver vinyl…

I think we have a few competitions to tidy up.. Ed Sheeran and War on Drugs ones.. I think both comps are tickets for the gigs in question next year.. Will sort these out soon…


Video for the week is now also up.. Had missed the last few weeks with hols so a good bit of catch up with releases on this one

Right so onto releases for Friday November 26th (Black Friday Weekend)… The black Friday thing is fairly lame in my opinion in our industry.. A few years ago as well as the ‘limited’ runs of vinyl for Black Friday we were offering some fairly great half price offers on some lines.. I think that should be looked at by record companies.. Just flogging overpriced reruns is getting a bit lame (with little or no thought going into the titles)… I love RSD (Record Store Day) and it is a crucial day for the shop (or even 2 days, I wouldn’t mind that).. But this year 2021.. We have had 2 RSDs, Love Record Stores, National Album Day and now Black Friday all with limited runs of stuff.. And I probably forgot some days.. I think one of those days should offer VALUE… Even if it is small margins to record companies.. Change it up a bit.. 10 titles each major company at half price on good titles.. Never going to happen I suppose when they are all fighting to get stuff pressed..

Anyway, Uni for the 26th of nov have for BF a 40th Anniversary Edition of U2’s ‘Gloria’ and a fancy version of LANA’s ‘Chemtrails’, amongst a few others.. DIRE STRAITS ‘Encores’ is due also..

Uni for the 26th have a new Christmas album by GARY BARLOW ‘The Dream Of Christmas’ on CD, Deluxe CD or white Vinyl.. Spinefarm have a brand new BLACK LABEL SOCIETY album ‘Doom Crew Inc.’ on CD, Silver 2LP or White 2LP.. Here is ‘Set You Free’ from the new album..

Virgin are reissuing THERAPY?’s ‘Nurse’ as a Deluxe 2CD or standard LP on the 26th of Nov via Uni.. Nearly 30 years old it is!!.. Craft have a splattered vinyl reissue by VINCE GUARALDI TRIO’s ‘Charlie Brown Christmas’ also..

Sony for the 26th have MINISTRY OF SOUND’s ‘The Annual 2022’ on CD as well as the reissue of MARTIN GORE’s ‘Counterfeit’ EP which was due a few months back originally.. Few nice Black Friday releases ala LEONARD COHEN, FOOs, HENDRIX and MILES on Sony..

Warner for the 26th have the biggest release of the weekend… Biggest in more ways than one.. Size, price, volume of stuff and interest,,, Yup it is the next in the series of the BOWIE Box Sets.. Brilliant Adventure’ 1992-2001 18LP Vinyl set.. Yes 18LP boxset.. 

DAVID BOWIE 5. BRILLIANT ADVENTURE (1992 – 2001) is an eleven CD box, eighteen-piece vinyl set and standard digital download box set; it is named after the Koto led instrumental, the penultimate track from the ‘hours…’ album. The boxsets include newly remastered versions, with input from the original producers and collaborators, of some of Bowie’s most underrated and experimental material: BLACK TIE WHITE NOISE, THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA (available on vinyl for the first time in nearly 30 years), 1.OUTSIDE, EARTHLING and ‘hours…’ along with the expanded live album BBC RADIO THEATRE, LONDON, JUNE 27, 2000, the non-album / alternative version / b-sides and soundtrack music compilation RE:CALL 5 and the legendary unreleased album from 2001 TOY.

We realise it’s an expensive box ok a very expensive box so we are doing a best price we can possible do on it at €360… As far as we can see we are the cheapest price on the whole continent… Over €80 cheaper than the biggest Rottweiler in the sky.. So if interested pull the trigger in the next few days as by the weekend the price will be going back up to €400.. Forewarned and all that.. We are ok with stage payments if that suits someone better also. I releases it’s half the price of my last car.. What’s wrong with my car.. Go way ou dat.. My friends love it.. That’s Bowie for you anyway.. Available as an 11CD Box set also…

Warner aside from the Bowie man have a 30th Anniversary reissue of ROXETTE’s ‘Joyride‘ on the 26th, coming on a few different formats. There is a standard vinyla limited marbled vinyl reissue, and then deluxe 3CD or 4LP sets with a host of unheard material… they also have a vinyl reissue of SIGUR ROS’ ‘Með suð í eyrum við spilum end’ via Krunk.

Warner also for the 26th have a 10CD ASIA Boxset ‘The Official Live Bootlegs, Volume One’, as well as a live DARYL HALL & JOHN OATS album ‘Live at the Troubadour’ on 2CD or 3LP vinyl..

Moving onto releases for the 26th of November by The Orchard.. We have a deluxe 2CD version of WYVERN LINGO’s ‘Awake You Lie’ album via Rubyworks.. It is a cracking album folks.. There are 12 bonus tracks on the deluxe version including a Janis Ian track ‘Better Times Will Come’, which they perform with Ian on the deluxe CD.. Ms Ian approached the band after she was taken aback by their ‘heavenly harmonies’ and so the collaboration began.. Here it is minus Janis, and here also is ‘Don’t Say It’ from the new album..

We are delighted to announce that the band will be performing an in-store with ourselves on Saturday the 27th of November at 2PM.. It’s a great opportunity to hear see some of these great new songs live.. You can buy the deluxe CD and or vinyl direct from the band on the day and they will sign for you / us also.. The girls played in the shop in Douglas upon release of the debut album 3/4 years ago I suppose now and they are so talented.. It was a real treat.. So I hope you can join us on the day for an in-store we are really looking forward to.. If you can’t make it and want a signed copy, drop in the muala and we will sort it out for you.. Hope to see you on the 27th!!

The Orchard also for the 26th have the JASON ISBELL ‘Georgia Blue’ covers album on CD..

Right i’ll hand you over to Bob now for a few further down the line releases

Hey folks,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well! 
Kicking us off this week for down the line bits is the announcement of a brand new PIXIES live release coming via Demon / Edsel, ‘Live in Brixton’. This is coming as an 8CD Set, and standard translucent coloured 8LP set, or a limited indies exclusive splatter coloured 8LP vinyl set, which captures four full sold out shows in Brixton on the band’s reunion tour in 2004.

BEACH HOUSE have just announced their brand new studio album is due in to us in February ’22. ‘Once Twice Melody’ is released via Bella Union, and is landing on CDVinyl or as a limited 2LP Gold / Clear Vinyl Box Set. The box set is limited in numbers and has been allocated so when they are gone they are gone again i’m afraid.

There is a nice reissue of THE LONG BLONDES ‘Someone To Drive You Home’ on 2LP Gold & Red Vinyl, released for the album’s 15th Anniversary through Rough Trade. This one comes as a gatefold LP with a bonus LP of 11 B-Sides.

Two more nice releases unfortunately here with allocations, so again buying from the site is the safest bet if interested incase the email isn’t checked until the morning. There is a SHARON VAN ETTEN limited blue 7” vinyl of ‘Silent Night / Blue Christmas’, released on December 10th which we have been allocations on, and there is also a brand new BILL CALLAHAN & BONNIE ‘PRINCE’ BILLY record due called ‘Blind Date Party’. This is a collection of favourites recorded with a host of different artists from the Drag City label roster, recorded over 2020, should be an interesting listen! The 2CD of this will be fine, but again the vinyl is very limited, and we do expect to run out so site is safest.

Last couple of bits from mise, there is a brand new record announced from MITSKI, entitled ‘Laurel Hell’ due in February of next year, and it is released on CDStandard Vinyl or Limited Opaque Red Vinyl. And finally, Music On Vinyl have a couple of nice releases in the ‘Collected’ series due in to us, with a lovely limited and numbered 3LP GENE CLARK ‘Collected’ due in December (this has a bonus 3rd LP of extra material, when the 3LP sells out with the label, it will only be the standard 2LP format available), and also some nice decades compilations on coloured vinyl due to us in the next week or two with ‘Sixties Collected’ on green vinyl‘Seventies Collected’ on red vinyl, and ‘Eighties Collected’ on magenta vinyl.

That’s it from me for this week folks,
Back to the boss-man!

Thanks Bob!

Planty And Krauss Return (With A Pinch Of Salt), Mode’s 101 Release, And Black Friday Releases

Hi everyone,
Hope all is well enough… Little piece of bad news to start off with tonight… The JACK O’ROURKE in-store this Friday has to be postponed i’m afraid for a date down the road.. Really sorry for disappointing here but we will have Jack in the siopa playing a few tunes soon enough hopefully.. Sorry, Friday not happening though.. New CD ‘Wild Place’ is out Friday and it is a beautiful listen.. Here is ‘Sea Swimming’ from the album

Right so here is what else is out this Friday Nov 5th.. This Friday has releases from ABBANATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE NIGHT SWEATSJOAN AS POLICE WOMAN / TONY ALLEN / DAVE OKUMUROSS FROM FRIENDSSNAIL MAIL, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, PARCELS, DIANA ROSS, a ART BLAKEY & THE JAZZ MESSENGERS lost recordings album from 1961, a BILLY JOEL Vinyl Box Set, a GREGORY PORTER ‘Greatest Hits’ vinyl, and THE CHARLATANS ‘Head Full Of Dreams’ best of compilations. There are reissues from RADIOHEADTHE BLACK KEYS , STEVE EARLEA CERTAIN RATIOFELA KUTI, a couple of JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ reissues of ‘Venner’, ‘Vestiges & Claws’ and ‘In Our Nature Dirty, all on ‘Dirty Pink Vinyl’. On the CD front there is a JETHRO TULL 4CD/2DVD deluxe release of ‘Benefit’, 3CD Deluxe reissues from PRETENDERS, and a new release from AIMEE MANN on CD only for now.

 Moving onto releases for next Friday the 12th of November.. We have new releases from THE CHIEFTAINS, DAMON ALBARNIDLESJONI MITCHELLCOURTNEY BARNETT, ROD STEWARTKYLIE MINOGUEERIC CLAPTONDAVE GAHAN & THE SOULSAVERSELVISTHE CHICKSGOV’T MULE and a 80s and 90s Vinyl compilation.. On the reissue front there is the NIRVANA ‘Nevermind : 30th Anniversary’ vinyl, 2cd and CD Boxset releases, CAT STEVENS / YUSUF’s ‘Teaser and The Firecat’ anniversary releases, as well as a reissue from PARAMORE on silver vinyl…

The amount of records that are out of stock (i’m like a broken record here I know) is so frustrating.. We do our special orders / catalogue orders every Monday and they can take the day and more sometimes.. Our conversion rate is maybe 30 to 40%.. The rest are out of stock.. Equally frustrating, actually more frustrating for the punter as there may be stock on the big beast in the sky and are trying to support us but we keep saying ‘sorry it’s out of stock’.. The industry is a bit wonky this year to be honest.. We will try and give as good info as we can from here to Mr. Claus.. Hi-Fi Hardware was another problematic area all year but we received a good supply of REGA (the best in the biz) stock there a week or two ago, so if anyone is interested in an upgrade or starting out, give us a shout on it..

Right so we will move onto releases for the 19th of November mail.. So let’s start with Warner who have the second outing from ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS.. Well if it comes close to the first outing it will be stunning.. ‘Raise The Roof’ is the title of the new record on Warner UK and is available as a CD, a Deluxe CD, a Double LP and an Indie Shop Only Yellow Double LP.. Just heard yesterday that the Yellow Indies version is now looking like it will be Dec 3rd before it will be with us.. The new record was produced by T Bone Burnett and has some quality musicians playing.. Bill Frisell, Buddy Miller, Russ Pahl AND Jay Bellerose to name a few.. The album is made up of obscure covers and one Plant / Burnett original, ‘High & Lonesome’, here tis :

It is one we are really looking forward to here in the siopa..I heard a story a few years back on the shop floor.. From a man, from a man, from a taxi man story so maybe a few grains of salt required.. Planty and Alison spent a few days in Timoleague here in the Rebel County a few years back, in Roy Harpers house i’m told, and local taxi man brought them back to the house and let’s just say from the account I was told they weren’t one bit worried about Covid in the back seat of the tax… More power to em!!! That’s any hope of an in-store gone I suppose Robert?? With me doubling as the showbiz reporter for the Sun…

Warner also have the vinyl release of the new TWENTY-ONE PILOTS latest record, the new JOOLS HOLLAND & FRIENDS release also out on 2LP or CD, a new score by JONSI on Krunk, a JAMES BLUNT greatest hits on 2CD, Deluxe 2CD or 2LP.. Warner also have a brand new EXODUS album as well as the first two INSPIRAL CARPETS albums reissued on indies coloured vinyl..

Lastly from Warner we will be getting copies of Meath outfit N.O.A.H’s EP ‘Echoes Of The Night’ in on vinyl very shortly.. The CDs landed a few weeks ago and the EP is making a bit of noise here and abroad, and rightfully so with some good tunes there.. Here is the single ‘Hands Up’ :

Oh re Black Friday releases.. You should see releases here on Record Store Day site.. If interested in anything shoot us back an email

I’m little disorganised and behind this week, with having been of last week and went to VILLAGERS last night in the Opera House.. Great it was btw.. First gig back pour moi.. Was lovely..

Sony for the 19th of Nov have a big big week with the release of our saviour ADELE’s new album ’30’ on CDBlack Vinyl or fairly fairly limited clear vinyl indie shop only version..

BRUCE is back also on the 19th of Nov with the ‘Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concert’ as a 2CD/DVD, 2CD/BluRay or 3LP Vinyl.. Here’s a trailer to the concert.. It looks only savage to be fair..

Speaking of legendary, the one and only CHRISTY MOORE has a new record out on the 19th of Nov also.. It’s title is ‘Flying Into Mystery‘.. Brand new studio album from Christy.. Poignant lead track considering the crisis we all face with climate change.. Here is ‘Clock Winds Down’ from the upcoming album.. Good on ya Christy.. Beautiful artwork actually also on the Lp and CD…

So Sony have 3 massive releases for the 19th.. The books are open folks.. Tá an leabhair ar oscailt duine go léir …

Integral for the 19th of Nov have a DAVID SYLVAIN Photography Book.. There is a DAWES 10th Anniversary reissue of ‘Nothing Is Wrong’, a couple of JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE reissues on coloured vinyl via New West, as well as reissues from THE NUDE PARTY and POKEY LA FARGE..

Integral for the 26th of Nov have the 10th Anniversary reissue of FIONN REGAN’s ‘100 Acres Of Sycamore‘… Beautiful album.. There was talk of cuts on this one but we hope to cover who asked for it.. The album is out via Heavenly… Rough Trade have a couple of ARTHUR RUSELLL LP reissues ‘Iowa Dream’ and ‘World Of Echo’.. Rough Trade also have JARV IS ‘Remixed’, a remix of ‘Beyond The Pale’ album.. New RICHARD DAWSON & CIRCLE album also..

The Orchard via Big Brother Recordings have the OASIS ‘Knebworth 1996’ physical formats.. 25 years ago.. I was working in GD on Patrick Street at the time and the two bucks strolled into the shop, had a quick look and left again.. Not the tallest lads in the world now to be far… Saw them over two nights down the Pairc back then as well.. Very enjoyable to be fair.. What a track list on this live album.. Plenty of Physical formats here

Cooking Vinyl have the brand new THE DARKNESS album ‘Motoheart’ on CD, Deluxe CD and LP.. They also have brand new DEAP VALLEY album out on the 19th of Nov ‘Marriage’.. Lastly from the Orchard for the 19th is Volume 5 in LUCINDA WILLIAMS Jukebox Series… ‘Have Yourself A Rockin Little Christmas’.. CD or Vinyl... Sorry sorry nearly forgot there is a PRIMAL SCREAM ‘Live At Levitation’ blue and yellow swirl vinyl releases also..

Will pass you over to the Bob Man now to run through a few down the road announcements..

Thanks Boss-Man, welcome back. Howdy folks.
Kicking us off this week on the down the road bits, we’ll have to start with the brilliant ‘101’ reissues by DEPECHE MODE. Cracking cracking live album. The updated versions due out are lovely. There is a expanded BluRay or 2DVD of the documentary with a few extra bits added in, and there is a lovely 2CD/2DVD/BluRay Box Set also. Have never seen the documentary myself, will have to give it a watch! This is due out on December 3rd.

Next up we’ll go with the next EDDIE PILLER release just announced, with ‘Eddie Piller Presents British Mod Sounds of the 1960s’. A savage collection of tracks. 100 tracks on the boxsets, 34 tracks on the 2LP vinyl formats. So with this one, we will have a 4CD Boxset, an Indies Only 6LP Clear Vinyl Boxset, a really limited 6LP Black Vinyl with Signed Exclusive Print Boxset, the standard 2LP Vinyl, and an indies only red / blue 2LP vinyl. February 2022 for this one.

There is a nice new Irish release due into us in February 2022, with the new album from TELEFÍS, entitled ‘a hAon’. Telefis is a new project from the legends that are Cathal Coughlan and Jacknife Lee. Will no doubt be an interesting listen that we’re very excited for. It’s coming on CD or LP, and here is ‘Mister Imperator’ from the album

Gonna fly through the rest of these fairly quickly, ENYA has an anniversary picture disc release of ‘It May Be’, which was a track recorded for the Lord Of The Rings soundtrack 20 years ago now. There is a reissue on green vinyl coming of BLACK CROWES ‘Before The Frost… Until The Freeze’, and there is a coloured limited compilation vinyl record release due from FRANZ FERDINAND ‘Hits To The Head’, pressed on red vinyl.

Fastest fingers first jobs with these last two i’m afraid. SPIRITUALIZED have a new album just announced, ‘Everything Was Beautiful’ is the title. With this one the CD stock and standard LP stock are okay, but there is a Deluxe Indies Pink Vinyl, and a Japanese Edition vinyl which stock is very tight on both. There is also a nice reissue of SAINT ETIENNE’s classic ‘Foxbase Alpha’ pressed on green vinyl released for the 30th Anniversary. Again stock is very tight on this with allocations, so for both these releases safest bet is through the site as they may be sold out before we see an email.

That’s it from mise for this week folks, back to the boss-man!

Thanks Bob!
Right so Universal for the 19th of November have a brand new studio album by ELBOW ‘Flying Dream 1’ as CD, Standard LP or Indies / HMV Exclusive green vinyl version.. Haven’t heard any of this one yet.. Looking forward to it..

Midlake Return, New Courtney Barnett, And The Album That Got Me Obsessed!

Hi folks,
Hope everyone is keeping safe and well.
Bob here as boss-man is off on his well earned week off! 
Might be a quick one this week as lots to get through. The machine keeps rolling!

We’ll kick off with new releases for this week, October 29th. There are new albums out from THE WAR ON DRUGSED SHEERANMASTODONJOE BONAMASSARICHARD ASHCROFTTORI AMOSNAT KING COLEBILLY BRAGG MARISSA NADLER, NIGHTMARES ON WAXHANS ZIMMER, and a new SOUL JAZZ compilation. There are reissues for this Friday by PINK FLOYDWHITESNAKER.E.MWHITE STRIPESWHITNEYBILLY PRESTONDAVE GAHAN, KHRUANGBINALABAMA SHAKES and WORLD PARTY  and lastly a couple of compilation releases from ELP and MOTORHEAD, and a new 7” from THE DELINES.

Onto releases for next Friday, November 5th. There are new releases from ABBANATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE NIGHT SWEATSJOAN AS POLICE WOMAN / TONY ALLEN / DAVE OKUMUROSS FROM FRIENDSSNAIL MAIL, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, PARCELS, DIANA ROSS, a ART BLAKEY & THE JAZZ MESSENGERS lost recordings album from 1961, a BILLY JOEL Vinyl Box Set, a GREGORY PORTER ‘Greatest Hits’ vinyl, and THE CHARLATANS ‘Head Full Of Dreams’ best of compilations. There are reissues from RADIOHEADTHE BLACK KEYS (4CD pushed back to December now), STEVE EARLEA CERTAIN RATIOFELA KUTI, a couple of JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ reissues of ‘Venner’, ‘Vestiges & Claws’ and ‘In Our Nature Dirty, all on ‘Dirty Pink Vinyl’. On the CD front there is a JETHRO TULL 4CD/2DVD deluxe release of ‘Benefit’, 3CD Deluxe reissues from PRETENDERS, and a new release from AIMEE MANN on CD only for now. Vinyl now released November 19th. A few of these never made the site because of holidays, so if interested or need more info pop us an email and we’ll get back to you!

The CD release of the SALVATION ‘Inspired by The Cranberries’ charity release for Pieta House is also due on November 5th, but the vinyl now has been pushed back a week or two, hoping to have in with us by Nov 19th. A great compilation for a great cause. 
Right so releases for November 12th. Universal also for the 12th have the release of the 30th Anniversary Edition of NIRVANA’s ‘Nevermind‘. What an album. The soundtrack of my childhood really. The first two albums I ever owned were ‘Appetite’ from GN’R and Nirvana’s debut ‘Bleach’, but it wasn’t until someone gave me ‘Nevermind’ a short while later that I became truly obsessed with music. I think that album had the same impact on many many people around the globe. It’s an album I hadn’t pulled out in quite a while and went back to when the anniversary fell a month or so ago. The production on it just blew me away again. Butch Vig made the record sound absolutely huge. And the tracks, just belter after belter. Great great pop songs, written exceptionally, disguised with heavy guitars and Kurt’s voice. An iconic record. 

There are a few nice formats out for this one. We will have a Deluxe 2CD (comes with a bonus live CD featuring highlights from 4 shows from the Nevermind-era. No Sir Henrys though, a shame!!). There is a Vinyl repress on gatefold with a bonus 7”, and also there is a Super Deluxe 5CD/BluRay set which comes the album remastered, 4 full concerts, the BluRay of one of the shows from Amsterdam, and a 40 page hardcover book. There will also be an 8LP Super Deluxe Vinyl with the extra live material, but this is looking like May 2022 for release now.  

With some of the Uni releases for the 12th, we didn’t have prices in time for getting this sent out, so a lot of links might be missing. Again if there is anything you are interested in pop us a mail and we can put it in the leabhair, or if looking for price or info let us know and we can chase up! Everything should be on the site by next week from Uni.

There is a really nice compilation release from THE CHIEFTAINS due out via Universal. What a legendary group. This one, entitled ‘Chronicles : 60 Years Of The Chieftains’ is out on 2CD, 2CD/DVD, 2LP Vinyl or as a limited Irish Exclusive Coloured 3LP Vinyl. 

Uni for the 12th have the TAYLOR SWIFT release of ‘Red (Taylor’s Version) as the next in the series of deluxe reissues, coming as a 2CD or 4LP.

Warner also have the release of the JONI MITCHELL’s 3LP ‘Live At Carnegie Hall 1969’, and the 5CD ‘ Archives Vol. 2 : The Reprise Years 1968-1971’. What an incredible period of music from Joni. These were due out late October but now coming out on November 12th.

Integral have a few nice ones for November 12th also. DAMON ALBARN releases his second solo album ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’. There are a few different formats on this one, with it coming on CDCassetteStandard VinylIndies Exclusive White Vinyl, or as a nice deluxe edition casebound book with white vinyl and a bonus 7” single.

Here is ‘Before You Gotta Go’ from the record

Lets crack straight into it with releases in the good siopa for this friday the 22nd of October… 


There are also delayed albums like the sufjan stevens & angelo de augustine a beginner’s mind vinyl release, very nice listen as well it is….and THE BLACK PUMAS capitol cuts vinyl is also due for this Friday….as i have said here before , release dates sometimes feel  a bit like picking the winning lottery numbers.

Hard to know what way Christmas will go for retail this year, it has been such a topsy turvy few years for all of us…in our specific line of work ( COVID, D2C, PRICE HIKES, RECORDS OUT Of STOCK) when we were open and open for call and collect we done really well…not so much obviously when we were locked down to just online only. Big thing in our favour when we were “ open” was folks more or less couldn’t go to a gig, go for a pint, go to a match, go on holidays…could do feck all really …but you could listen to music…so we did see the benefit of that…that has settled in the last few months…so hard to know how the next few months will play out for retailers …the year has flown in  many ways.

Right so moving on to releases for the 5th of Nov….PIAS/INTEGRAL have the RADIOHEAD release ( interesting one) KID A MNESIA …which is out via XL , 3lp or 3cd versions left ( unfortunately im told the 3lp red version is gone for now if not forever id say) .

Exclusive to this release, Kid A mnesia is comprised of unearthed material culled from the Kid A / Amnesiac sessions.

The Orchard for the 5th of OCTOBER  sees the release of the Osees live ‘Levitation Sessions’, these are extremely limited and the record company has said cuts are inevitable with them so tis a pot luck one, ORCHARD ( wrongly) don’t do allocations ( you have to allocate in my opinion, so we all know where we stand with limited titles, no allocations exposes us and we can look like amateur hour when if we oversell)  and the same goes for the Limited Reissues of José González  first three solo albums “ VENEER”, “ VESTIGES AND CLAWS” and “IN OUR NATURE DIARY” all on Dirty Pink Vinyl….again sorry i cant allocate or promise so if interested will do our best, so drop us an email….. We also have the return of Aimee Mann with an album inspired by the book ‘Girl Interrupted’ on CD only for now with Vinyl scheduled for 19th November, the sequel to last year’s ‘Kings Disease’ from Nas album on CD with Vinyl to follow in March 2022 and lastly Conan Mockasin on Transparent Blue Vinyl from Mexican Summer.

Give us an email if interested in anything above please.

Aimee Mann’s last album was great so looking forward to that.

We have a really exciting release coming out on the 5th of November…a release close to our hearts here, with the new second full length album by JACK O’ROURKE…the album is called “ wild place” and after one full listen sounds just stunning…beautiful piano, vocal and strings throughout.its gorgeous.  Jack has always been a friend to and supported the shop here or wherever we are through thick and thin.

We will have Jack in for an instore around the album release , either going to be Friday late afternoon/evening or Saturday morning the 5th or 6th of November….one instore to seriously look forward to…will confirm here soon! 

Here is “Patsy Cline” for the new record…

Heres a bit about Jack and the new album…CD only for now, hopefully the vinyl version next year..

Wild Place is Jack’s first release since 2019’s Ivory Towers and first full album release since his acclaimed debut, Dreamcatcher, which entered the Irish Top 5. In the intervening years Jack has established himself as one of Ireland’s finest songsmiths and a live favourite. For the recording of Wild Place, Jack and his band based themselves in Triskel Christchurch in Cork and used the wonderful acoustics and Triskel’s grand piano to great effect. The results are probably Jack’s most endearing work to date – the songs emanating from a soulful and folk-inspired place.

Jack first came to prominence with his ode to misunderstood youth and growing up gay, ‘Silence’, became a torch song for the Irish Marriage Equality Referendum and won the Nashville Songwriting Competition (judges included Tom Waits and Bill Withers). Chosen as a 2019 headliner for Other Voices, Jack was featured prominently in the television series (most recently part of the Home special in December, featuring himself. Loah, Villagers and Denise Chaila) and his collaboration, ‘New Day’ with electronic artist, Kormac has nearly 500,000 views for its award winning music video.

“Wild Place has songs of love and loss, beautiful misfits, nature and wilderness,” says Jack. “There’s freedom and rage in there too, alongside questions on race, friendship, a still-Covid world, my dreams and sea swimming.”

The piano and vocal are centre, but there are elements of folk, roots, blues, Americana and chamber music.” There’s also a song, ‘Strange Bird’ written about the last year and a half – a drone recording a town during lockdown and all we’ve lost and gained. It’s influenced hugely by John Prine – “When John Prine died during Covid, it was a Bowie or Cohen or Prince moment – I was heartbroken without knowing him personally – his lyrics and his style meant so much, and his songwriting always floored me. There’s a Steinbeck or Mark Twain quality – he says so much without being flowery.”

Jack teamed up with members of Crash Ensemble, Clare Sands, Hugh Dillon and Aisling Fitzpatrick to record Wild Place, with a live quality brought to the songs by Ber Quinn’s mixing. Jack’s long-standing drummer, David Ryan, produced the album, despite not using drums on any of the tracks and it was mastered in Canada by Philip Shaw (Feist and Bob Iver).

Ok ok just got word…the album launch party instore is in our gaff/ humble abode/record shop on Friday the 5th of November at 6 pm..the day the album is out…sweet, Jack is great live…hope ye can make it, more on it next week.

Sony for the 5th November have a BILLY JOEL 9LP boxset called collection volume 1…i must admit i have strong strong childhood musical memories of Joel…there was a few records around the house of him when i was a child..greatest hits vol1 & 2 on a double LP with Goodnight Saigon finishing one of the sides….side 3 if memory serves and that song kind of blew a 12 year olds mind a little bit..ah the power of the ceol.

Sony also has a brand new album by JAMES ARTHUR.

Got a call tuesday morning re THE WAR ON DRUGS new album…the vinyl in particular….2 problems really…firstly its delayed …so won’t be with us on the 29th of October ( the CD will,  but not the lp formats) second issue is amount of stock been received , it has turned into a bit of a disappointment im afraid….so the latest format we plugged to ye , the 2lp red vinyl version is not happening at all full stop, not happening….there was four of ye asked for it so don’t know if ye want the indies only blue version or the std blk versions….let us know sher….the indies blue version was cut hugely and only have  2 /3 or maybe 4 copies left of it to sell and it doesn’t look like there will be  anymore this side of Mr Claus…i have a good few std left to sell but when they are gone, they are gone for a while also…im just passing the info on folks.

Right Warner for the 5th November have the next in the series of JETHRO TULL deluxe remix albums by Steven Wilson…this time up is “ benefit” as a 4cd/2dvd version….it is 45 euro and we will get the link up next week or sooner hopefully! Email in if interested!

Right ill hand ye over to Raymondo Dinzeo to run and jump through announcements and down the line stuff.

There probably are a few but we are a little short at the moment so we only have links for 3 titles done…

First up first up is the announcement of ADELEs new album “ 30” via Sony on the 19th November…it is available as CD, std blk vinyl and limited indies only clear vinyl version…ta an leabhar ar oscailt!!…i think nearly every record shop still trading  here and in the UK owe this lady a debt of gratitude…she nearly single handedly kept record shops open in 2011/2012…her album” 21” hit a nerve and man did it sell….when we were selling nothing, we were selling hundreds of Adele CDs…every week when we were living on fumes, Adele was the bit of petrol…honestly she played a big part in keeping our doors open…if i ever meet her i will be buying her a pint…unlikely i know…i remember Dave Grohl saying around the same time how record shops are an important part of a lot of people’s lives ( at the time there was a huge cull of record shops…circa 200 in Ireland in 2005 down to circa 40 shops in 2012…it was finger nail stuff…honestly…many a time i thought would i be better off just shutting the door….i was afraid to close, what will i do?…I had worked selling albums for all my adult life, nearly 20 years at that stage…what oh what could i do in the real world?? But Adele was selling and then the green shoots of vinyl started to appear and started to blossom with Bowie’s next day album in 2013 and the rest is in the history books….i often think of some of the independent record shop owners who shut their doors in 09, 10 and 2011 and wonder if they could have managed to hang on for another bit longer, they might have survived…they weren’t to know Adele and David were around the bend of the river in a rescue boat i suppose…no one did) and that if the music is good enough people will buy it…a lot has changed in the 10 years since “21” but lets hope we are both still at it for album” 50” Adele…a pint of guinness here if your every in Cork…ill try be nicer to the Bowieheads David i suppose , that might be a way of saying thanks to you…ill try i said.

Right i got sidetracked…sorry….there is a new NEIL YOUNG AND CRAZY HORSE album out in December the 10th i think…brand new material from Young…available on cd, std lp, limited indies lp and a deluxe boxset….everyones elses prices are going up and Neils are coming down it seems…vinyl anyway!

Last one for this week is TAYLOR SWIFTs “ RED – TAYLORS VERSION” as a 4lp set or 2cd also…due on 12th November.

Ill hand you back to Ray now…

Pias for the 12th November have the new DAMON ALBARN record “ the nearer the fountain, more pure the stream flows” out via Transgressive records now which is his new label…fine label, home also to Arlo Parks , Loyle Carner and FOALS amongst others…anyway new record out on the 12th …Albarn impresses me more and more as time goes by, i think the musical history books will be deservedly very kind to him as a inventive, invocative progressive musician …the new album is on cd, indies only white vinyl vers, std lp, cassette and casebound deluxe book edition with scanned lyrics photos etc white vinyl and 7” single aslo…here is “ royal morning blue” from the album

Thanks for listening as always.

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is well enough.. We are in holiday mode here at your local LP, CD & Cassette Emporium.. Shane is enjoying a few well earned days off, Bob’s off next week and i’m off the week after.. So with Shane off today, i’m in the siopa or about to leave it soon now.. So Bob is on newsletter duties from home.. Normally the newsletter is a tag team and the two of us work on it on Wednesday.. But Bob is mainly in charge of taking ye’r money this week.. Before I let him to it.. Paddy Moloney from The Chieftain’s passed away in the last few days.. Bit of a tribal leader in many ways, as The Cheiftain’s carried the Irish Traditional flag proudly for so many years.. I remember the Sony rep coming into the Golden Discs shop on 25 Patrick Street circa 94/95 i’d say and having a little pop quiz.. He played a CD and we were to tell who t’was… It ended up being Gordon Sumner ‘as gaeilge’ with the bould Chieftains.. Always finding new ways.. Respected the globe over.. R.I.P Paddy..

I’ll hand ye to the Bob man for now so..

Hey folks, 
Hope you are all keeping safe and well.

We also have a pair of tickets up for grabs for anyone who pre-orders the album for the band’s show in the 3Arena in Dublin in April 2022. Here is the single ‘Living Proof’.. Lovely song. Great band.

On to Universal for October 29th. Well first we need to mention a Uni release for November 6th. ABBA’s ‘Voyage’ lands in with us on Nov 6th, the band’s 9th studio album and first album in 40 years. The vinyl pressing, both the standard and exclusive blue vinyl are both very limited so we need to have numbers in for orders this week (a week earlier, hence plugging it with Oct 29th stock). So if interested give us a nudge or up on the website! Other formats for ABBA include CDCassette or Deluxe Eco Box CD..

Onto releases from Universal for October 29th. Uni’s biggest release is the R.E.M reissue of ‘New Adventures in Hi-Fi’, for the 25th Anniversary of the album.This release is coming as a 2LP2CD/BluRay set or as a 2CD. Uni also have a brand new album from TORI AMOS entitled ‘Ocean to Ocean’, her first since 2017’s ‘Native Invader’.

UMC also for the 29th have a vinyl reissue of BILLY PRESTON’s ‘Encouraging Words’ from 1970 on limited vinyl release.

This was originally released via mail order only and sold out gigs, and is the duos first collection of songs originally from 2002.

Proper for October 29th have a reissue of WORLD PARTY’s second album ‘Goodbye Jumbo’ on vinyl, and also two Porcupine Tree reissues, ‘Signify’ and ‘Stupid Dream’, both 2LP reissues on 140Gram Vinyl with a Gatefold Sleeve.

Right so, time for some down the line announcements.
Kicking us off on this front this week is the announcement of the second studio album from BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD, entitled ‘Ants From Up Here’. The debut is a firm shop favourite over the last 12 months, a cracking listen start to finish, so we’re looking forward to this landing in February. A good few formats on this one, and all the vinyl are allocated folks, so fastest fingers first, especially the vinyl formats. The two most limited formats are lovely. There is a 2LP Blue Marbled SIGNED Exclusive vinyl pressing, we are getting very very little of these so safest bet is to buy from site. An email could be missed and not seen until later tonight / early tomorrow and could be sold out by the time we see it. So if interested site is safest bet. There is also a lovely 4LP Vinyl Set with a bonus live album which the stock is tight on, so again site is safest best. The other formats include CDDeluxe 2CD with live CD bonus, standard 2LP Vinyl and the Indies Exclusive Blue Vinyl.

Dublin’s SILVERBACKS are back in January 2022 with their second studio output ‘Archive Material’, coming on The Orchard via Full Time Hobby on CD or Limited Blue Vinyl. Their first album ‘Fad’ was a great listen. Fine punk, alternative rock from our little island. Check out the new album titled lead single here :

We will have a lovely MOGWAI ‘EPX3’ coloured vinyl 3LP set due in to us for release in late November up on the site now. It’s a vinyl reissue of their 3 EPs from the 1990s, reissued on vinyl for the first time. We have been given allocations again here, so when they’re gone they’re gone. Fastest fingers first is the safest again. 

There is a 9LP Vinyl Box Set release from BILLY JOEL, ‘The Vinyl Collection Vol.1’. It contains all of Joel’s albums from the 1970s, including Cold Spring Harbor, Piano Man, Streetlife Serenade, Turnstiles, The Stranger, 52nd Street, and also Songs in the Attic, a live release from 1981. This is coming via Sony on November 5th.

Another nice announcement for early 2022 (which is shaping up to be strong on the release front) is the 14th studio album release from EELS. The album entitled ‘Extreme Witchcraft’ is out January 28th on the bands own E-Works label with PIAS. The album is produced with John Parish, marking the first time he has worked with Eels since 2001’s classic ‘Souljacker’ LP. It is coming on CD or as a Opaque Transparent Yellow Vinyl pressing. Again allocations given on the vinyl of this, when it’s gone it’s gone.

Right so, Integral for November 5th up next to finish off for today, and a few nice bits out. Integral’s big release for the week (and arguably the biggest overall) comes with the release of RADIOHEAD’s ‘KID A MNESIA’ via XL Recordings. It features the two classic albums ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesia’, as well as a new bonus material album ‘Kid Amnesiae’, featuring unearthed material from the recording sessions of both albums. The red 3LP format is fully sold out i’m afraid, but we do have the 3CD and standard black 3LP Vinyl left.

Integral also have a new A CERTAIN RATIO new remix 2LP on limited sparkle vinyl, with a bonus 12′‘ coming via Mute for November 5th. INVADA Records have the next in the series of CLINT MANSELL soundtrack releases, this time up with ‘In The Earth (Original Music)’ on vinyl, the film came out early 2021. There is a splatter coloured vinyl reissue of FELA KUTI’s ‘London Scene’ LP. PIAS have a new release from JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN, TONY ALLEN & DAVE OKUMU entitled ‘The Solution Is Restless’. The legendary Tony Allen was Fela Kuti’s drummer in the 70’s, and recorded this album shortly before passing away in 2020. It also features Damon Albarn on a track, who introduced Joan to Allen in 2019. Check out Take Me To Your Leader below, really enjoying this track

MR. BUNGLE have a live stream album release from October 2020, ‘The Night They Came Home’ on Indies Orange Vinyl. ROSS FROM FRIENDS has a new studio album ‘Tread’ out via Brainfeeder on CD or Indies LP. ‘Valentine’ the sophomore album from SNAIL MAIL lands on November 5th via Matador on CD or Indies Gold Vinyl, and finally Integral also have a host of STEVE EARLE coloured reissues out also on Nov 5th.

That’s it for this week folks,
Thanks as always!
Bobby, Shane & The Boss-Man!

The EP was released between debut and second albums.. I have emailed trying to get numbers on the Slayers…

Republic of Music for the 22nd of October have the brand new and 4th studio album by GLASVEGAS called ‘Godspeed’ on indies green vinyl.. It seems like a vinyl release only.. Madness in my opinion.. Why alienate physical CD buyers?? If it costs a label €2 to send a CD to a shop it costs them a lot.. Do a run of 500 CDs anyway.. Probably make 3k profit on 500 CDs.. So it alienates and makes no business sense Either.. I could be wrong and the maybe the CD is out further down the line.. I don’t get it if there is none produced though.. Same thing with a download code.. They seem to be becoming less and less.. More madness. It should be given if you buy a vinyl record… Give the bloody code… The LPs are dear enough.. The amount of folk who walk away form the vinyl because here is no code is a 3/4 people a week.. Listen to the frontline.. Codes are important.. More and more we need to see, not less and less.. Again it does not make sense to me.. Some of the 3/4 a week will buy CD.. Others will just leave it altogether… No good for us or for the record company..

ROM also have THE STOOGES ‘Live At Whiskey A Gogo‘ and PINK FLOYD in Jazz tribute album..

Integral for the 22nd of Oct have a 7” by IDLES, as well as brand new albums by MY MORNING JACKET and PARQUET COURTS..

Rough Trade releases a deluxe edition of ‘Sound & Colour’, ALABAMA SHAKES ground breaking, sophomore, Grammy Winning 2015 album..

Hey folks, 
Quieter from me this week, I’d say the week of OOct 22nd / Oct 29th which are linked for the site this week are the busiest of the year (definitely the busiest so far for the year anyway, we’ll see how November shapes up!), which eats into time at getting down the road releases programmed. A nice one none the less is the new PAUL WELLER release coming via Universal for December 3rd. It is ‘Paul Weller with Jules Buckley & the BBC Symphony Orchestra – An Orchestrated Songbook’, a live concert from Weller captured in May 2021, performing hits from The Jam, The Style Council and solo material with a full orchestra. No vinyl yet on this but it lands in December on standard CD or as a deluxe CD house in a hardback book.

Quick note also on THE WAR ON DRUGS new record ‘I Don’t Live Here Anymore‘. There has been another vinyl added, with a nice red exclusive vinyl landing now with a few of the indie shops in the country. So now there is CDStandard Black Vinyl, Indies Blue Vinyl or this new Exclusive Red Vinyl. All formats enter you into the competition to win a pair of tickets to the April 2022 show in the 3Arena in Dublin

JOOLS HOLLAND has a new album out in November via Warner, entitled : PIANOLA : PIANO & FRIENDS. It’s a collection of piano tracks that have inspired Mr. Holland and features guests such as David Gilmour, Gregory Porter, Joe Bonamassa, Rick Wakeman and more. Coming on November 19th on CD or 2LP Vinyl. 

Finally from mise for this week, fresh from the press and only announced in the last hour or so is the next in the live series from CAN, this time ‘Live in Brighton 1975’. Extremely well remastered live albums all from original tapes by all accounts with this series. This one is coming on CD or as a limited gold 2LP Vinyl on Dec 3rd

That’s it from me folks, hopefully will have a few more next week for ye. Back to the bossman! 

Thanks Bob!
Universal for the 22nd of Oct have ELTON JOHN’s ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ on CD and LP.. THE ROLLING STONES have the deluxe versions of TATTOO YOU out.. Formats are CD minipack, 1LP Standard Black (Mick cover), 2LP 180gm double deluxe vinyl, 4CD Boxset and lastly the 5LP boxset.. LANA DEL REY has a brand new album ‘Blue Banisters’ on CD and LP.. Here is ‘Arcadia’ from the album

Uni also have the OST to ‘The French Despatch’ movie and JARVIS COCKER ‘Chansons d’Ennui Tip Top’ which is a new album and a nod, tip of his hat to French pop music..

Sin é really for this week folks
Thanks for listening as always
Ray, Bobby & Shane

Hope to have the Maiden tees this week so will do another ‘live’ draw for them this week… Hays the excitement.. I can hardly bare it… Speaking of Mick / Susan… People really love the record.. Mick is selling to people who never bought / got Mick before (what do be wrong with ye like!!) and Susan’s talent has reached a fine audience.. They are getting a great reaction on the American tour.. Phoebe Bridgers loves the pair of them.. The stars seems to be aligned on this record.. Both voices are only beautiful to be fair.. Great stuff it is…

Right, sidetracked I was.. Sorry.. Releases for the 8th of October include new releases by BILLY BRAGG, SAM FENDERJAMES BLAKEBADBADNOTGOODJOHN COLTRANE, DMAS, EFTERKLANGTRIVIUM (CD only for now)NOAH GUNDERSEN (CD only for now) ..

Her only solo album released while she was alive.. It was recorded in 1996 on the 3rd of Jan.. Her aunt helped our out with the cost of getting it recorded as she hadn’t a bean… Her purpose with the recording was to allow her the chance to sell a CD at her shows after.. It is an exquisite recording… Went far too early did Eva… BMG have a coloured vinyl version of KATIE MELUA’s ‘Ultimate Collection.. Warner have a coloured vinyl version of KYLIE’s ‘Fever’LYKKE LI’s ‘Wound Rhymes’ reissue, OMARA PORTUONDO self titled coloured reissue also with help from all her friends in the Buena Vista Social Club.. All these releases are through Warner for NAD…

Last one, Shane here has 2 tickets for JAMES in the 3Arena in dec and he can’t go so face value €100 for the 2 if anyone is interested.. Sin sin.. Well i’d like to wish a happy birthday to Tommy T.C as allegedly he likes a lot of attention.. It’s like the Larry Gogan show today..

Anyway, The Orchard for the 15th of October have the second studio album by DAVID KEENAN ‘What Then?’ on CD and LP via Rubyworks… Here is ‘Philomena’ from the new record.. Very interesting artist..

Orchard also have the next 2 volumes of LUCINDA WILLIAMS ‘Lu’s Jukebox Series’ with the release of Volume 3 and Volume 4 on the 15th of Oct… 3 is ‘Bob’s Back Pages : A Night Of Bob Dylan Songs’ and Vol. 4 is ‘A Night Of 60s Country Classics’.. Both on CD and LP..

Nevermind me for now, i’m going to hand ye over to the real Boss who has some lovely announcements made over the last week to help the easing opening of da aul wallets..

Hey folks,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well.
Kicking us off this week is a big 30th Anniversary announcement. Last week saw the anniversary of NIRVANA’s stone-cold classic ‘Nevermind’, which is getting reissued on a nice few formats. There is a 2CD (including album remastered and a bonus live CD), a Vinyl & Bonus 7” reissue, a deluxe 5CD/BluRay set which has the album remastered, 4 full live concerts and the BluRay footage of the remastered Amsterdam gig. All these formats are due out in November, and there finally is a savage 8LP super deluxe boxset which also features the remastered album and 4 complete live shows, but this one isn’t due out now until 2022.

Busy week this week, as also just announced to us today is the release of the next in the series of DAVID BOWIE box sets. ‘Brilliant Adventure (1992-2001)’ is due for release on November 26th, the fifth release in the Bowie career spanning box sets. This set captures a more experimental time for Bowie, and will contain albums Black Tie White Noise, ‘The Buddha Of Suburbia (first time on vinyl in nearly 30 years), ‘1.Outside’, ‘Earthling’, ‘hours’, as well as the expanded live album from BBC Radio Theatre, London 2000, the non-album / alternative version / b-sides compilation ‘Re:Call 5’, and legendary unreleased 2001 album ‘TOY’. As normal, this is coming as a 11CD Box Set, or as a 18LP Vinyl Box. 

Following from this but staying with Bowie releases. Parlophone are also releases a standalone, expanded version of ‘TOY: Box’ in January 2022. This expanded edition will feature the unreleased album, bonus alternative versions and alternative mixes, proposed B-Sides, and an ‘Unplugged & Somewhat Slightly Electric’ mixes of thirteen TOY tracks. This set will be released as a 3CD or a 6 X 10” Vinyl Box Set.

Sony has the release of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND’s ‘Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts’, coming as a 2LP Vinyl, CD/DVD or CD/BluRay on November 19th. The two classic performances have been compiled into a 90-minute show which was recorded as the Boss was recording ‘The River’, with the footage being edited from the original 16mm concert film. A rarely filmed era for Bruce, meant to be a cracker of a gig.

Last couple from mise for today, IDLES have announced a brand new studio album ‘Crawler’ due for release also in November. This is coming as a CDEco Mix Vinyl (all unique pressings varying in colour from one copy to the next), and a deluxe, DLP 45RPM format of the vinyl. There is also a standard vinyl pressing but this won’t be released until January 2022. Heavenly Recordings have a lovely 10th Anniversary reissue of ‘100 Acres Of Sycamore’ by Bray’s own FIONN REGAN. First timer on 180gm vinyl for this one, and unfortunately we are only getting a handful of copies so it’ll be fastest fingers first here folks, sorry. Lastly, WHITE LIES have announced their new studio album is due in February 2022, entitled ‘As I Try Not To Fall Apart’, being released on CDVinyl or Indies Only Coloured Vinyl. 

Back to the boss-man!

Thanks Bob.. Did ya like what I did there?? Subtle out!!

Re the new WAR ON DRUGS album… We have 2 tickets for the show in the 3Arena next year up for grabs and as well as that, we have secured a price promotion on the new vinyl.. The Indies One and the standard black one.. So the prices of the vinyl are now €40 Best Price on the Indies Vinyl and €35 Best Price on the Standard vinyl.. Anyone who had bought it at the older price we will sort refunds out for you for the difference..

Intergral for the 15th of Oct have FELA KUTI’s ‘Live With Ginger Baker’ 50th Anniversary edition Red Coloured Vinyl, KIEFER ‘Kickinit Alone’ green vinyl.. For NAD Sub Pop have a coloured reissue of WEYES BLOOD ‘Titanic Rising’ on Gold Vinyl and YVES TUMOR has a new 12” ‘The Asymptotical World’ EP

Integral for the 22nd of Oct have a 7” vinyl single of IDLES ‘Model Village’.. There is a new self titled album release from MY MORNING JACKET.. First studio album in 6 years.. CD and first press only coloured vinyl released via ATO.. Integral also have the brand new PARQUET COURTS album for the 22nd on Vinyl, Deluxe Vinyl, CD or Indies Only Vinyl..

Sony for the 15th of Oct have a few nice NAD Releases including PATTI SMITH’s ‘Horses’DIDO ‘No Angel’FIRST AID KIT ‘Stay Gold’SOLANGE ‘Seat at the Table’BILLIE HOLIDAY ‘Lady In Satin’JOAN JETT ‘Bad Reputation’ and MARIAH CAREY ‘Emotions’, all on limited vinyl..

PRIMAL SCREAM release ‘Demodelica’ on the 15th of Oct also which are previously unreleased demoes and work in progress mixes of the classic ‘Screamadelica’.. Available on CD or DLP.. There is a JUDAS PRIEST new best of compilation ‘Reflections : 50 Heavy Metal Years’ on CD or DLP also…

Uni for the 15th of October next, last but not least.. Hold onto ye’r wallets.. THE BEATLES ‘Let It Be’ 50th Anniversary editions are with us.. There are a number of physical formats including 5LP Box Set best price €145, 5CD/BluRay Version Best Price €1301LP Reissue, 2CD and a 1CD version also... I’d like to think that the shop is very inclusive as regards to musical taste (with no looking down from the srón area).. So whether tis Cannibal Corpse or Celine Dion floats your boat.. Who are we to disagree with you! You enjoy it and are hurting no one.. Drive the feck on is our motto.. But I will say I do find it hard to understand when people dis The Beatles.. I’m like (in my head.. Politician of course) how can you not appreciate songs like ‘Get Back’, ‘Across The Universe’, ‘Let It Be’… Timeless, incredible songs.. Sounding better now then when I first heard them.. The best ever?? Hard to argue really.. Maybe The Doors shade it personally for me.. Anyway’s i’ll let it be.. Across the Universe is probably my own favourite Beatles song…

Uni also for the 15th have the debut release from FINNEAS (eight time grammy winner).. Makes some records with a Billie Eilish, co-writes and produces Billie Eilish, has a sister named Billie Eilish.. A talented dude.. Debut out on Polydor on 15th Oct.. CD and LP on this.. Here is ‘the 90s’ from the album.. Also ‘Break My Heart Again’ another fine tune..

UMC also have a couple of WELLER limited reissues.. ‘Days of Speed’ as a Limited 2LP (acoustic live album) and ‘Illumination’ limited 1LP.. First ever reissue on vinyl of the 6th solo album from 2002..

Onto the NAD releases from Universal for the 15th of Oct.. AMY WINEHOUSE’s ‘Back To Black’ picture disc is most likely sold out but i’ll try get a few more if anyone wants to go on a waiting list… MARIANNE FAITHFULL’s ‘Broken English’ only 2 copies left but will try get a few more also.. We will also have KIRSTY MACCOLLMS DYNAMITEGABRIELLE and KT TUNSTALL.. Also UMC for the 15th of Oct have reissues by SAM COOKE and LINTON KWESI JOHNSON..

Sin é for this week folks,
Went on a bit.. Sorry!!
Thanks for listening,
Ray, Bobby & Shane

New Elbow & A Black Keys Reissue, National Album Day 2021, And A Strange Industry

Hi Everyone
Hope ye’r all well enough.. We had a bit of a ropey week with deliveries.. Mick / Susan and Dylan Bootleg all delayed.. The Dylan delay was a bit of a saga.. It’s on the way.. It’s on the way was the message until Tuesday morning (yesterday) the boxes were missing and the order was to be rekeyed (for delivery next week!!).. Then 9 boxes of records landed at 4PM yesterday (phew) just when I was composing an email to the folks that pre-ordered… I am like a broken record here a bit but release dates / deliveries are wonky.. The Brexit thing is as tricky as the 4th of January.. So bare with us if possible when things go a bit astray!!

Right, Releases for this Friday the 24th of Sept include new releases from PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING, THE ALTERED HOURSSUFJAN STEVENS & ANGELO DE AUGUSTINE, SHARON CORRTYLER THE CREATORANGEL OLSEN EPa METALLICA Remix 12”DONALD FAGEN & STEELY DAN live albums, and the new VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO Tribute album ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’... There are reissues from DJ SHADOWPIXIES (sold out sorry), & GARY NUMAN.

Also going to give a mention here to National Album Day 2021 (NAD 2021) which is the 15th of October.. There are limited releases out that day.. The theme this year are incredible female artists.. Bob will link below here some of what we have..  All these are quite limited presses, so if interested in any best route is direct through site as emails might be missed, and once they’re gone from the site i’m afraid they are gone for good. Sony and Uni’s lists Bob will link below and now up on the site to order :

Video for the week is now up here :

Righty so, moving on to releases for October 8th.. Warner have a quiet enough week but do have the vinyl reissue of BIGGIE’s (Notorious B.I.G.) debut ‘Ready To Die’ as a standard or indies silver vinyl version via Bad Boy Records… Roadrunner have the brand new album from TRIVIUM ‘In The Court Of The Dragon’ on CD Only for now.. There is a new DMA’s Vinyl EP out via BMG and there are CD reissues of most of DAFT PUNK’s catalogue out via their own Daft Life Records Label.. No sign of the vinyl reissues yet though!!

Sony for the 8th of Oct have the new album by BLANKET ‘Modern Escapism’ on CD and LP

Republic of Music for the 8th of October have the new album by EFTERKLANG
 ‘Wild Flowers’ via City Slang and is available on CD, LP or LPX Indies Exclusive Version...

Orchard for the 8th of Oct have the brand new album from NOAH GUNDERSEN ‘A Pillar Of Salt’ via Cooking Vinyl.. The CD is the 8th but the vinyl is not out until Jan 2022… Here is ‘Sleepless In Seattle’.. Phoebe Bridgers sings a duet with Noah on the new album also..

The world seems (well here in our little corner anyway) to be getting back to normal and with that the siopa is getting back to normal also.. This year we were closed from Jan 1 to May 17 and after that we had 10 mad weeks of biz (yacht brochures out and all) but really is back and no bad thing in some ways… Put some manners on us!! The industry for shops like ourselves have loads of challenges and always will.. Recent ones are deliveries, Brexit, pricing, stock levels and direct to consumer stuff where our suppliers sell the ‘best / most limited’ version from their own sits and the sites they own.. (A lot of big online music retail sites are actually owned by the record companies that supply us).. Don’t know a whole pile of industries where your suppliers also compete with you.. Strange industry in that regard.. The record companies are aware though what record shops have and they do.. They nurture a sense of community in an area of link minded people which makes record shops the length and breadth of the country special places.. Our customers want to support us, support the community but it’s tricky for them when they really want the ‘Blue’ Gallagher or the ‘Red’ Kylie.. It is what it is folks and we completely understand it from ye’r point of view.. Maybe not so much from the other side of the fence though.. But it is what it is.. The record companies could close us all down also.. (Would cause a stir that!!).. So all record shops are aware who the boss is also.. Anyways, not sure where I was going with it really.. It is what it is and we all have to play ball with it as best we can.. We win on other lovely indies / offers / tee’s as well, so win some / lose some.. Strange industry in the competition regard though..

Anyway!! Releases from Uni for the 8th of October include a brand new album from SAM FENDER ‘Seventeen Going Under’ on CD, Deluxe CD, Gatefold Black Vinyl, Cassette and an Indies Only Baby Blue Vinyl also, out via Polydor..

Republica / Polydor have the brand new JAMES BLAKE album ‘Friends Break Your Heart’ on CD and LP.. Impulse have a really nice release on 8th Oct with JOHN COLTRANE’s ‘A Love Supreme : Live in Seattle’ as a 1CD or 2LP.. Coltrane performed ‘A Love Supreme’ just twice in public in Paris and in Seattle.. The Seattle recording was never known to exist until very recently.. It was recorded by Coltrane’s friend and noted Seattle musician Joe Brazil.. Billboard calls it ‘a miracle discovery.. of extraordinary historical significance’..

UMC have a reissue also of VIOLENT FEMMES 5th Studio album ‘Why Do Birds Sing?’ on 8th October and it is available to us as a 2CD which includes a complete 1991 live set from Norfolk.. The black vinyl version is out on Oct 8th also and stock is ok with it.. Indies version is not so good on stock.. We are only guaranteed 3 copies with a maybe for 2 more.. So fastest fingers here now for the 3 copies .. Email for the 2 maybes.. Sorry!!

Verve have ELLA FITZGERALD’s ‘Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas’ Double LP reissue on their high quality ‘Acoustic Series’ label..

Going to hand you over to Bobby now for the further down the line releases etc!

Hi Everyone

Hope all is well enough.
I was off the grid for the last while as we had a family bereavement, so I’d like to thank Bob and Shane for having my back once again… They know it would be reciprocated.

Yep Gina lost her dad, (devastating loss), my father in law, my old pal… We used to go for a drink 50 out of 52 Sunday nights a year i’d say if not 52 out of 52! For 15 or 16 years… Hundreds and hundreds of small nights out… Thousands of laughs… I could write a book…. Ahh he is an awful sore loss and will be… Liam was a fierce important person in my life and sher they dont grow on trees but no better man to tell you to face the puck out so face it, it is.

Again the lads have been gentlemen… Thanks.

Right so, apologies for a few bits I may have missed over the last week, i’m back at it now so will do my best to catch up.

I think we will still have to pick winners from a hat for the IRON MAIDEN tee shirt competition.. Not sure if the tees landed yet though Bob.? (They haven’t yet!)

I think that’s it for comps Bob is it or am i forgetting something…? (I think that’s it!)

Republic of Music for the 24th of September have a savage Cork release, one we’re very excited for in the siopa. The mighty THE ALTERED HOURS are set to release their second studio album ‘Convertible’ on Pizza Pizza Records, released on standard or exclusive blue vinyl. Check out the video for single ‘Radiant Wound’ below :

ROM also will have a new vinyl in the Late Night Tales series, this one compiled by DON LETTS and pressed on Indies Exclusive Green Vinyl.

Right so, time for a few down the line announcements. Plenty of these to come over next couple of weeks folks, under a bit of time pressure today so not too many, but lots being announced! 

Only one place to start this week. Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid are back. Of course that is ABBA, with the announcement of their brand new album ‘Voyage’, released worldwide on November 5th, announced alongside a revolutionary concert which will take place in London in 2022 and will be screened worldwide. The brand new studio album will come on CDVinyl and Limited Blue Vinyl. Both the vinyl formats have been given allocations, so when they are gone they are gone. 

Next up will be my own most anticipated album of the year, with the announcement of BIFFY CLYRO’s 9th studio album ‘The Myth Of The Happily Ever After’. This follows up last year’s ‘A Celebration Of Endings’ which is still my most listened to album of last year, an absolute cracker. Probably the only upside to your favourite band not being able to tour the last year is that now you get another studio album, only just over 12 months after the previous one! Happy days for the Bob-Man. This new album, which initially was set out as a B-Side record, took it’s own life during the recording with Simon Neil penning a full new album, and with the band swapping their usual couple of month long recording trips to LA with a six week recording session in a farmhouse near their homes in Scotland, the first time the band have recorded an album on home soil. For the release, there is a CD, a Limited Red Vinyl with a Bonus Live CD (recorded in The Barrowlands last year, featuring 2020’s ‘A Celebration Of Endings’ performed in full), and also there will be a limited edition 10” Vinyl release of tracks “Errors in the History of God/Unknown Male 01”. Really looking forward to this one!!

Ray mentioned last week the release of THE BEATLES new formats of ‘Let It Be’, which is coming as a brand new vinyl reissue, deluxe 2CD, a Super Deluxe 4LP + 12” Vinyl Set, or a Super Deluxe 5CD + BluRay Set to go with the documentary from Peter Jackson which is due out later in the year. Here is the information on the 2 Super Deluxe Box Sets :

Hansa is world renowned as the studio responsible for classic albums

including ‘Low’ and ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie, ‘The Idiot‘ and ‘Lust For Life’ by

Iggy Pop and Depeche Mode’s third, fourth and fifth albums ‘Construction

Time Again’, ‘Some Great Reward’ and ‘Black Celebration’.

New Stones and Nick Cave Sets, Mick Flannery & Susan O’Neill’s ‘In The Game’ Release, And Our John Blek In-Stores!

Hi everyone,

Hope all is well enough.. Well remind me to not to come to these pages if i’m looking for a kidney… Ticketless.. And then humbled.. Beat out the gate with our Cork cockiness in town… Some outfit Luimneach..  Brought us down to earth fair lively.. We were always up against it but there was a quiet optimism around Cork (isn’t there always!!) but we were well and truly put back in our box.. Class outfit Limerick..

Anyway (kidneys seem ok for now thankfully) moving on to releases for this Friday the 27th of August… We will have new releases BIG RED MACHINECHRVCHESGOATSTEVE GUNNMARISA ANDERSON / WILLIAM TYLERMAISIE PETERSHALSEY, the NEW ORDER ‘Be A Rebel’ Remixed release and the next releases of ‘The Montreux Years’ live series by MARIANNE FAITHFULL and MUDDY WATERS.. There are reissues from SUPERGRASSHEAVY STEREO, THE KOOKSJ COLEBILL EVANSSPICE GIRLS, and THE BEACH BOYS ‘Feel Flows : The Sunflower & Surf’s Up Sessions’ release on various formats..

A collaboration album between MICK FLANNERY and Irish newcomer SUSAN O’NEILL (SON), entitled ‘In The Game’..  It’s available on CD and LP via the duo’s own label.. Self released original quality Irish album, I have had the pleasure of the album for the last week or so and it’s a beautiful record… The songs are based upon a couple meeting, falling in love, and then the demis of the relationship and all the hurt and pain that come with it.. The two artists play their parts excellently, it’s really well written (kind of expect no more when Mick’s involved to be fair).. Vocally it is just stunning and there is a lovely tone and texture to the whole album.. The pair go from spitting fire at one another in ‘Are We Free’ to the tenderness of Susan O Neill’s ‘Miss Me When I’m Gone’.. Here is ‘Trouble’ from the album.. More on it next week or maybe later..

Ok so we will move onto releases for the 10th of September next.. So Warner via Rhino / Atlantic have the new ARETHA FRANKLIN compilation album called simply ‘Aretha’..

We are doing a special price on it also if any left price will revert to €275..

Downloads for all audio, four tour laminates, lanyard, three lithos, three guitar picks, lyric folder and sheets and a 120 page hardcover book.. Fine price I know but a fine set in fairness..

On that trawler with the main character we are.. Trawling the sea for fish.. All good songs do that.. Take you somewhere else.. This for me is as fine a song as John has created.. Here it is.. Well worth a listen (budget a bit tight on d’video i’d say, well well worth a listen)

Right over to Bobby again now for some announcements.. Thick and fast they are this weather..

Hey folks, hope you are all keeping safe and well.
A serious amount of releases announced in the last week. Santa Season won’t be long coming around it feels. Only managed to get through half i’d say of the announcements so will be a busy few weeks with it! Few biggies there today nonetheless 

I suppose there is only one place to start.. THE ROLLING STONES 40th Anniversary reissue of ‘Tattoo You’. Really sad news yesterday of the death of the legend, icon and one of the best drummers to have graced this planet Mr. Charlie Watts. Like everyone, reading just excellent stories of the man since the news broke. One of my favourites, after a few gargles Jagger rang demanding ‘Where is my drummer?’. Watts late at night has a shave, gets fully dressed into a suit, walks to Jagger’s room, proceeds to give him a few punches and shouts ‘Don’t ever call me your drummer, you are MY singer.’ Excellent. Truly excellent. A sad sad day for rock music, and the overall music work. R.I.P Charlie Watts. 

With the reissue, there are a host of formats coming, all featuring a new 2021 Remaster of the cracking album. There is a 1CD reissuea 2CD featuring bonus rare material, a standard 1LP Vinyl reissuea Deluxe 2LP reissue featuring bonus rare material. The Super Deluxe formats come as a 4CD / 1LP Picture Disc (CDs here feature the remastered album, rare and bonus material and a live album from Wembley in 1982). There is also a Super Deluxe 5LP Limited Set with the same material.

Some other really nice releases announced in the last week include a 2CD or 2LP Vinyl release of NEIL YOUNG’s ‘Carnegie Hall’ 1970 show, with this show having never been released or heard before. There is a savage NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDs release with ‘B-Sides & Rarities’ being re-released and including a few new formats. The album has now been expanded to ‘Part 1 : 1988 – 2005’ and ‘Part 2 : 2006-2020’. Part 1 is reissued as a 3CD, and the new Part 2 will be released as a 2CDDeluxe 2CD, or standalone 2LP. There is also a lovely ‘Part 1 : 1988 – 2005’ & ‘Part 2 : 2006-2020’ Deluxe 7LP Set. This set will be the first time Part 1 has been pressed on vinyl.

There is a new MOTORHEAD compilation album announced, ‘Everything Louder Forever : The Very Best Of’. This is coming as a 2CD2LP or Deluxe 4LP Fold Out Cover Edition, and is the first best of that will contain Motorhead’s full career. EAGLES have announced that their live album ‘Live From The Forum 76’ will get pressed on vinyl for the first time, and finally on the future releases for this week is the announcement of ED SHEERAN’s brand new studio album ‘=’. This one is coming as a CDVinyl or Indies Exclusive White Vinyl. Quite a bit today, and more  to come for sure over the next few weeks!

Oh apologies folks, there is one more but we are not putting on the site as of now as we are not 100% sure if we will get the stock or not, but it is a nice one so we said we’d mention it. We have asked for 4 copies of a new BREAKING BAD (Music From The Original TV Series) 5 x 10” Coloured Vinyl Record Box Set coming via Music on Vinyl. The set will be 120EUR, and there is only 400 being pressed. Hence we don’t know if we will get them yet! So if you are interested, pop us a mail, and we will note the interest, and if we get lucky and manage to get a few copies we will let you know. We can’t guarantee but will communicate if we run into stock issues and do not get any. Here is a bit of info on the set :


Right so that is it from me this time, back to the boss-man!
Thanks Bob!
The Orchard for the 10th of September have the SPIRITUALIZED reissue of ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space’.. Great album.. We were only allocated 5 copies and were sold before we even had a chance to sell them.. Frustrating from a retailer’s point of view when you could sell 25/30 copies.. If anyone wants to go on the list for the repress let us know sher.. CD available alright.. Nice reissue on vinyl of RYAN SHERIDAN’s ‘The Day You Live Forever’ limited gold vinyl coming via Rubyworks on the 10th.. There is also a brand new STEVE HACKETT album on Inside Out ‘Surrender of Silence’ on CD, 2CD or 2LP/DC version also.. 

Lastly VAN & ERIC CLAPTON are together for a charity single.. The song is called ‘Mask / No Mask’ and Ian Brown plays harmonica on it… No he doesn’t! And that’s not the name of the song either… The proceeds of the song are going to Van’s charity for out of work musicians and you can’t argue with that no matter what your beliefs are..

Integral for the 10th of September have great new albums by AMYL & THE SNIFFERSCID RIMMATTHEW E. WHITE, SAINT ETIENNEPOKEY LAFARGE and the LOW new one of course..

Integral for the 17th of Sept have a reissue of AVEY TARE debut ‘Down There’ and a new MILE HIGH CLUB  album also..

Sin é for this week really folks,
Thanks for listening,
Ray, Bobby & Shane

John Blek ‘On Ether & Air’ Album Launch In-Stores

Guess who’s back?? Yep Shady’s back.. Back again… Nice break.. Badly needed.. Massive thanks to Bobby and Shane for holding the fort and running the show while I didn’t answer an email for 9 days..

Also we have a solo album due in from BOY ONE (aka Brian Foley.. bassist with The Blades).. The album is entitled ‘Calm Before The Storm‘ : 
The recording of the album ‘CALM BEFORE THE STORM’ was very much a stop start affair interspersed by lockdowns, restricted travel and social distancing. Strange times indeed. However most of the songs were written before Covid reared its ugly head and so a variety of topics are tackled; White collar crime, Regrets late in life, Loneliness, Domestic violence. On the whole though the album is an optimistic affair sprinkled with its share of love songs..glam rock, summer love songs.. piano ballads.. All in all a rich tapestry of pop gems.
Brian sent us a copy of the new single ‘Broken Skies’ but unfortunately we are struggling to get it to link to the newsletter… But it is a damn fine tune… We are looking forward to hearing the full album

Right so here are the releases for the 27th of August… We will have new releases BIG RED MACHINECHRVCHESGOATSTEVE GUNNMARISA ANDERSON / WILLIAM TYLERMAISIE PETERSHALSEY, the NEW ORDER ‘Be A Rebel’ Remixed release and the next releases of ‘The Montreux Years’ live series by MARIANNE FAITHFULL and MUDDY WATERS.. There are reissues from SUPERGRASSHEAVY STEREO, THE KOOKSJ COLEBILL EVANSSPICE GIRLS, and THE BEACH BOYS ‘Feel Flows : The Sunflower & Surf’s Up Sessions’ release on various formats.. On the CD front there is the releases of the TEN YEARS AFTER ‘1967-1974’ 10CD setnew ONE REPUBLIC, and the SISTERS OF MERCY ‘BBC Sessions 1982-194’ CD release..

I saw on Twitter that THE MURDER CAPITAL tweeted on Monday that it was 2 years since album 1, and 2 very soon.. Got me thinking.. TMC album launch was 15th of August 2019, with a lot of us in the Crane for it.. Special night (ask Young Adam.. We snuck him into the gig as ‘Music Zone Staff’ as he was underage and he was with us for the spine tingling sound check).. Great night altogether.. Will live long in the memory.. Had a few pints with friends in the Hi B after and a bit of  a sing song inside.. 15 days later and the shopping centre in Douglas was nearly burnt to the ground and our business evaporated with it.. (Small fry in the scheme of things and with hindsight, but at the time t’was stressful).. Life throws shit, that’s what it does.. A couple of sound sound members of our community have had shit thrown at them lately and have fights to face… Nothing but well wishes and love from us for them.. They have this.. As Knopfler and Emmylou said ‘there should be laughter after pain.. There should be sunshine after rain’… Chins in the air gents, ye have this xxx

Sony for the 3rd of September really (bar Pearl Jam which is sold out) have MARTIN GORE’s ‘Counterfeit EP’.. The Manic’s album which I am excited about (did I read Nicky Wire refer to it as the Manic’s ‘Pop’ album!) is moved to 10th Sept..

Oh another special Irish release I nearly forgot about.. PADDY CASEY has a new album.. I’d really like Paddy, seen him quite a few times.. Album 5 i think (maybe 6)… The album is called ‘Turn This Ship Around’ and here is the title track for your enjoyment..
There is 22 songs on the album.. Paddy is a seriously talented dude…

PIAS / Integral for the 3rd of Sept have a reissue of GRIZZLY BEAR’s ‘Yellow House’ 15th Anniversary Edition on Clear Vinyl. 

PIAS / Integral for the 10th of September have the new AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS record on Rough Trade ‘Comfort To Me’ on CD, LP and Indies Only LP.. New album also from CID RIM on LuckyOne Records.. A release I’m really looking forward to is the new LOW album on Sub Pop ‘HEY WHAT’ on CD, Cassette, Vinyl and Indies Only Vinyl.. 10 new songs from the maestros.. Here is ‘Days Like These’ from the new record..

Domino via Integral have a brand new MATTHEW E. WHITE album on CD, 2LP or Indies 2LP.. ‘K Bay’ it is called after his home studio.. New West have a brand new POKEY LAFARGE album ‘In The Blossom of Their Shade’ on CD, LP and Indies Only LP (the indies version is orange and comes with a bonus 7” single)..

Hey folks,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well this week!
Kicking us off this week for a few pre-order bits down the line is the announcement of the highly anticipated new record by ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS, entitled ‘Raise The Roof’. What an album is their debut ‘Raising Sand’ from back in 2007 I believe. Six Grammys. Didn’t really think that there would ever be a second outing in the pipeline but here we are. New single ‘Can’t Let Go’ picks up right where the last album ended. It’s great. Two great voices. Four formats on this one, two very expensive formats unfortunately. There is a CDDeluxe CDStandard Vinyl and Indies Exclusive Yellow Vinyl. Apologies on the vinyl prices.

Two nice ones announced just today via PIAS. GARY NUMAN’s fifth studio album ‘Warriors’ has just been announced for a limited orange vinyl reissue due at the end of September, and they have also announced a brand new PARQUET COURTS record ‘Sympathy For Life’, which is coming as a CDVinylIndies Green Vinyl or a Limited Deluxe Vinyl. This one is due for release late October.

Proper via Demon Records have two ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN reissues due also in October. 2001’s ‘Flowers’ is reissued on white vinyl, and 2005’s ‘Siberia’ is pressed as a 2LP Clear Vinyl, both limited and both long out of print records.

That’s it from mise for this week
Back to the boss-man!

Thanks Bob!!

Right Orchard for the 3rd of September have the 2CD reissue of the incredible WHIPPING BOY album ‘Heartworm’.. The 10 x LPs we were allocated are long gone.. But we are taking names for the Nov 26th reissue now.. So throw us your name if you want a vinyl copy.. Orchard also have a reissue of BEHEMOTH’s ‘Sventevith’ on various formats..

One last note folks.. We are running a bit tight on mailers and waiting for an order to land in to us.. If anyone who happens to be calling into the shop in the next 3 or 4 days happened to have any spare vinyl shipping mailers lying around at home, we’d happily take them from you if they weren’t needed. Would get us out of jail for the weekend..

Right sin é sin é for this week.. Got a bit carried away.. I missed ye so much I reckon..
Thanks for listening,
Ray, Bobby & Shane,
P.S… The aul tickets thing is still hoped for… Just saying… Hope.. I know.. Like our chances (hmm… do I mean that?)..
The horse is going full pelt already!

Hope you are all keeping safe and well.

May be another short and sweet newsletter this week. Half typing this up on Tuesday, and half typing it on Wednesday. Getting the second jab done on Wednesday morning (happy days!) and heading to see Mr. John Blek in the fine establishment that is Coughlan’s at 6:30PM after it. (First time attending a gig since February 2020, which also happened to be Mr. John Blek). May just have to leave all the giving out to the boss-man for next week.

Moving on to releases for August 27th, and definitely the busiest release day of the month. We’ll start with Warner. The biggest from Warner for the 27th is the reissue of the excellent ‘In It For The Money’ by SUPERGRASS from back in 1997 (a great time for music, more on that later). This one is coming as a deluxe 3CD or as a Indies Only Turquoise Vinyl with a bonus 12”.  

WEA also have the new TEN YEARS AFTER 1967-1974 10CD Boxset which was originally due out in July for the 27th. MARIANNE FAITHFULL and MUDDY WATERS are the next releases in ‘The Montreux Years’ Series with Vinyl and CD releases for both.

Next up is Universal who also have a good few nice releases. First up is the new CHRVCHES album ‘Screen Violence’. Really like this Scottish groups last few outings. Great pop music and always enjoyed the happy synth sound mixed with sometimes quite dark lyrics, always a contradiction I like a lot in music. Latest single ‘How Not To Drown’ features Robert Smith of The Cure. Available on CDVinyl or Indies Red Vinyl.

Uni also have the new HALSEY album ‘If I Can’t Have Love I Want Power’ on CDVinyl or Indies White Vinyl for August 27th. There is a reissue of SPICE GIRLS ‘Wannabe’ EP for the 25th Anniversary on Picture Disc vinyl or Cassette, both very limited.

Last couple from Uni for the 27th include the vinyl release of the latest J COLE album ‘The Off Season’, and a new ONE REPUBLIC album (CD only for now) called ‘Human’. Lastly from Uni there is a vinyl reissue of ‘Trio 64’ from BILL EVANS on the Verve Label. Only about 25-30 quid more expensive than when we last had this on vinyl a few years back. Did I say no giving out this week? …Sorry! 

PIAS for August 27 have the new BIG RED MACHINE album on CD (vinyl formats pushed back now), NEW ORDER’s ‘Be A Rebel Remixed’ CD or Clear Vinyl, as well as more new releases from STEVE GUNN, and MARISA ANDERSON & WILLIAM TYLER.

Cargo for the 27th have a non-album material compilation LP from the mighty GOAT entitled ‘Headsoup’, on clear green vinyl with a bonus 7”..

Moving on to The Orchard releases for August 27th. JORJA SMITH’s newest EP ‘Be Right Back’ get’s its vinyl release after coming out on CD earlier in the summer. There are two BORIS reissues coming via Third Man Records of ‘Flood’ and ‘NO’ standard or indies only vinyl. There is a new ENTER SHIKARI release, ‘Moratorium (Broadcasts From The Interruption)’, a home sessions / acoustic live album which was recorded on YouTube and other various platforms throughout 2020 and 2021. There is a new album from THE NEAL MORSE BAND, their fourth entitled ‘Innocence & Danger’ on a few different formats, and finally there is a couple of CHILDREN OF BODOM coloured vinyl reissues of ‘Hatebreeder’ and ‘Something Wild’. We don’t have these set up on the site yet so if looking for anything pop us a mail at and we can note in the order book for you!

Right, busy one August 27th to be fair!

Onto a few down the line bits announced in the last week. It’s not been too busy but a few good’uns!

We’ll start with the biggy. A 250,000 people biggy. The biggest gig in the UK up until that point (not sure would there be many bigger since either). 2 shows, quarter of a million people over two nights. Apparently there was enough demand to sell out 7 nights. I am of course talking about the legendary OASIS ‘Knebworth 1996’ gigs, getting their first ever official release for the 25th Anniversary on November 19th, to go with the release of the brand new documentary on the gigs which is in cinemas in September. As mentioned earlier, what a time for music. Support from the day includes The Manics, The Prodigy, The Charlatans, Ocean Colour Scene, The Chemical Brothers and more. Wouldn’t get a line up like that today! And the headliners. A band, on their second album, 3 years into their career, having become that huge. Will it ever happen again on that scale? My guess, with t’internet and how accessible music has become is that it will be very very difficult for a band to ever do it that quickly, and get that big again. But an iconic moment. So get on with the release Bob! There are a few formats, there is a BluRaya 3DVD (both of these formats include both the Oasis gigs and the documentary), a 2CD of the gigsa deluxe 2CD / DVD (includes the documentary), and a 3LP Vinyl Record pressing. Looking forward to hearing this a lot, and seeing the documentary. A legendary gig. Here is the trailer for the documentary :

Next up, one not too far down the line (and CD is out already). Now up on the site for vinyl release for August 20th is the new JOHN FRANCIS FLYNN album ‘I Would Not Live Always’, out via Proper / River Lea records. Great Irish folk music here from the debut album Dublin singer. John is a member of celebrated traditional group Skipper’s Alley and is joined here by bandmate Ultan O’Brien for the album. You can check out a live version of track ‘Lovely Joan’ below :

Final couple for down the line releases include a lovely 6CD or 11LP box set from MARK KNOPFLER ‘Studio Albums 1’, which has the first 5 solo album from the Dire Straits front-man and a B-Sides compilation for the same era. There is also the brand new, 10th studio outting from BILLY BRAGG, entitled ‘The Million Things That Never Happened’ due out in November on CDVinyl or Indies Exclusive Transparent Green & Blue VinylJAMES BLAKE returns with a brand new album ‘Friends That Break Your Heart’ out via Uni on CD or Vinyl on September 10th. There is also the announcement of a special Limited Edition CD version of the new COLDPLAY album ‘Music Of The Spheres’, to go with the exclusive splatter vinyl format and standard CD out October 15th.

Spotify playlist for August 27th now up at link below. Busy week of release so plenty of listening! 

Right quickly onto PIAS for September 3rd, who have the GRIZZLY BEAR Indies Clear vinyl reissue of second album ‘Yellow House’ for the 15th Anniversary. Standard vinyl also available on this one. They also have a reissue of AMON TOBIN’s ‘Out From Out Where’ on Opaque Gold Vinyl.

Right so, sin sin from me folks. Boss-Man back in the siopa on Friday, and back on newsletter duties next week. 
Thanks as always for listening, hope everyone has a good week.
Oh one last thing. Just got a call from the Boss-Man. Didn’t want to talk about the shop at all, only wanted to talk tickets! He is asking if there is anyone out there who would happen to have access to a ticket (or two!) to the All Ireland Final, if there was any chance at all you could pop him and email at it would be absolutely magic. No harm in asking, no shop talk until Friday he says though! 
Thanks everyone,
Bobby, Shane & The Boss-Man

Love Record Stores 2021 Lists Announced, New Primal Scream & Black Sabbath Box!

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well this week.
Bobby here this week, boss-man is off on a well earned break, so myself and Shane will be holding the fort for the next week and a bit.

We’ll start today with a bit of house keeping before flying through the releases for the next few weeks (may be flying these next two weeks to fit everything in). First up we would like to say a massive thank you to NIAMH REGAN for her truly special in-store Friday 30th of July, and to all who came to support. It was lovely to have live music back in the siopa again, really enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing Niamh back in Cork for her show in Coughlan’s in November!

Some big news breaking this week with the announcement that LOVE RECORD STORES (LRS I will refer it to as from here on) is going ahead again this year. Again, releases will be very limited, and like RSD we can not hold or put away any stock. It will be sold on Saturday September 4th in-store from 9AM first come first served, and all remaining stock will be online from 6PM. (More info here in the coming weeks). So there is three companies involved this year, Integral, Cargo and Republic of Music. I will attach a full list of releases below from all three companies, but I only have pricing for Integral as we speak. Most of the releases are down for September 4th, but a few Integral releases are marked for later release. All the orders will still go up in the next week.

With Ray being away this week and the orders needing to go up, we will not be taking wish lists. We hope to order in enough stock to cover the titles, but there will be cuts and disappointments, with stock being so limited. We will do our best to cover everything people may be interested in, and will communicate any problems and cuts as we know more. So here is the list for the full LRS 2021 release :

Right so, on to releases for this Friday the 6th of August. There is the release of the GEORGE HARRISON ‘All Things Must Pass’ 50th Anniversary Boxsets on a few formats.
