Gonna head over to Shane now with a few interesting further down the road releases …TOOL fans at the ready…on this release actually i must say a few words…its wicked expensive to start with…but even aside from that, qty pressed is tiny and even at the price we may have done double the number we were allocated ( 5 copies and 3 spoken for already) , tis frustrating to be honest, sometimes allocations are 1 or 2 units…we are even been allocated on catalog stock now from some record companies…it is what it is, a blessing and a curse.

Sorry over to you Shane kid..

Sound Ray, yeah I agree, this is mad expensive but unfortunately Tool fans like myself have to go for it.
I read during the week that there were signed versions of this released through their website and fans were giving out as it was over 800 dollars, so they released these more affordable (!) non-signed ones.
In fairness, they do always do very cool artwork and packaging but still.
I’m going to see them in Dublin in May, the first time they’ve been in Ireland since 2006!
We have very limited quantities as Ray said of this vinyl box set of their last album ‘Fear Inoculum‘ which is class.
Fastest finger first on this so if interested don’t wait:
https://musiczone.ie/product/tool-fear-inoculum-5-lp-vinyl-box-set/

 Second up is another favourite of mine (and Bobby’s) King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have yet another new album coming on the 15th of April. It’s called ‘Made in Timeland’. Seriously impressive band, they often release 2 or 3 albums a year. A few years back they did a thrash metal one, then built their own guitars with unique tunings for another 3 albums and recently they did an electronicy one!
Here’s the ‘Dripping Tap’

A bit further down the line, is a new Live album on coloured vinyl by Irish legends MOVING HEARTS. It was recorded in Vicar St. in 2007. It’s limited to 750 copies worldwide and will be out at the end of May.

Also coming soon are new albums by KURT VILE and KEVIN MORBY.

Oh, forgot to link the Tin Machine 2 release last week, so there you go.

Think that’s about it from me. Back to you Ray!

 

Thanks Shane!

Universal RSD 2022 – List with Pricing

DROP 1
ArtistTitleFormatFormat details/ Reason behind releaseUK QTYeuro retail
Amy Michelleis that all there is?12″Amy Michelle’s artistry and music is one that belongs on vinyl; the left field, sort-of-pop come haunting bedroom-recorded ‘alternative’ sound lives and breathes on vinyl, the intimate process of listening to her music emphasised perfectly by the act of placing it on the deck and hitting play. Amy is of that new generation who are encapsulated by the vinyl revival, and with that comes the importance of having each and every one of her release’s on a physical format. Amy has many ideas of how she can emphasise her music and message through physical formats, and feels it would be a very powerful statement for her first release to be a part of record store day; not only is it an institution which has been the gateway for so many people her age, to be a woman representing RSD through her music would go some way to inspiring more young women to break into the physical music scene, one that has been dominated by male artists for so long.Being a highly visual artist, it is immensely frustrating that the tiny square on a DSP app may be the only way for her early fans to see what she puts so much into to help convey herself as an artist. With Amy, it’s the whole package; every lyric, flourish of colour, choice of pose for artwork, it’s all deliberate and intended. The overarching theme of this EP is Amy coming to terms with her younger-self’s ambition and dreams; Amy is repurposing her old school notebooks to illustrate the track list on this record. The vinyl will be pressed in the exact Pantone of purple used in all her art, the symbolic nature of which will be displayed as she develops as an artist. With ‘is that all there is?’ Amy cycles through a dream-state paralysis delivered with a quiet intensity. She literally leaves nothing in the well, giving all into her songs whilst cleverly using subtle guitar and production to carry the weight of her writing. This raw emotion carries throughout the EP. She truly encapsulates the quietest ones have the loudest minds. Amy made a video in April 2020 to a demo version of the debut single, ‘the bottom of the well’, featuring her childhood home videos — it immediately captivated and silenced us all when we first saw it https://youtu.be/m5E57rnGwSU. We think that ‘is that all there is?’ would be a fantastic and necessary addition to this year’s RSD.40016.00
Angelo BadalamentiBlue Velvet – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition)2xLPBlue Velvet is David Lynch’s unforgettable 1986 masterwork, starring Kyle MacLachlan as a curious college student, Isabella Rosselini, as a tormented lounge singer, and Dennis Hopper, as an emotional gas-sniffing psychopath. Blue Velvet was Lynch’s first collaboration with his longtime composer and musical partner, Angelo Badalamenti, who channels Lynch’s unique vision with a dark, moody yet melodic score, at turns agitated and violent, soaring with sublime beauty, and hanging cool with ’50s-style jazz. The long available single LP has been expanded by 60 minutes to a 2 LP Deluxe Edition with the addition of the famous 1963 recording of “Blue Velvet,” performed by Bobby Vinton as well as previously unreleased film cues, alternates and outtakes entitled “Lumberton Firewood.” Although Blue Velvet was scored more traditionally than later Lynch projects, the director and composer intended many tracks to be merely “firewood,” their term for raw orchestral sonorities to be edited and manipulated into sound design by the director. The Deluxe Edition packaging features liner notes by Tim Greiving, incorporating new interviews with David Lynch, Angelo Badalamenti, Kyle MacLachlan and producer Fred Caruso. The cover features the original 1986 Italian movie poster art designed by Enzio Sciotti. Pressed on Marbleized Blue vinyl exclusively for RSD 2022.50035.00
Art PepperMeets The Rhythm Section (MONO)LPAccording to jazz lore, on the morning of January 19, 1957, esteemed alto saxophonist Art Pepper woke up to learn that he was booked for a session, just hours later, with Miles Davis’ highly respected rhythm section (pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones), the landmark title, Meets the Rhythm Section, was recorded. Produced by Contemporary Records’ Lester Koenig and recorded by engineer Roy DuNann, Meets the Rhythm Section has been praised as “a diamond of recorded jazz history” by AllMusic. Housed in a tip-on jacket, this special mono edition features all-analog mastering from the original mono tapes by Bernie Grundman and is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at QRP. As part of the Contemporary Records Acoustic Sounds Series, this release celebrates 70 years of the venerable jazz record label.45039.00
BlondieSunday Girl EP2 x 7″Double 7″ package celebrating one of Blondie’s greatest singles. Sunday Girl was a UK and worldwide number one single in 1979. Bespoke, deluxe 2-disc / 4-track single set, in a gatefold sleeve. Disc one features the original single plus the French version on red coloured vinyl. Disc two features two previously unreleased tracks, on yellow coloured vinyl – a demo from 1978 and a live version recorded at the Paramount Theatre, Portland, Oregon in January, 1979. A unique EP, exclusive for RSD 2022, featuring one of Blondie’s most famous, endearing and successful singles. Taken from the band’s multi-million-selling album Parallel Lines Sunday Girl, originally released in 1979, was the follow-up single to the band’s number one hit single, Heart of Glass, and was a UK No. 1 and a top 10 hit around Europe. The success of these two singles pushed the Parallel Lines album to number one, several months after its initial release and helped Blondie become the first ‘new-wave’ act to reach platinum status.100027.00
Brian TylerThe Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift – Original Score2xLPThe Fast and the Furious is the most successful movie franchise of all time, with almost 6.5 BILLION dollars in box office receipts from ten films over the past 20 years. Tokyo Drift is often sighted as the best of the lot, and the musical score is definitely one of the most lauded among score fans. Brian Tyler scored Tokyo Drift, (with an assist from Slash on “Welcome to Tokyo”), and went on to the score four of the five subsequent films. This album has never been available before on LP. The text only CD cover has been replaced with a new design based on Japanese manga art styles. This double disc will feature an orange LP for sides A and B, and a black vinyl record for sides C and D, with side D featuring a stencil of the scarab beetle design that appears on the car belonging to the Drift King.40039.00
Bruno NicolaiLa Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times)LPLA DAMA ROSSA UCCIDE SETTE VOLTE—The Red Queen Kills Seven Times—blurs the line between thriller and horror. The cult success it enjoys can be attributed to its aesthetics that encapsulate the essence of the Italian thriller. Bruno Nicolai’s score for The Red Queen Kills Seven Times flawlessly brings together the pop and underground music sensitivity of the 1970s with the gothic nuances of the plot thanks to a clever use of harpsichords. The result is a pivotal score, not just because of the importance of the film itself, but for the whole golden age of the soundtrack genre. Exquisite, sweet and sensual lounge tracks are counterbalanced by tense, deranged and suspense-filled dodecaphonic highlights and by obstinate bass lines that become the perfect soundtrack for the Red Queen’s murders or the victims’ desperate getaways. The album is part of CAM Sugar’s PAURA, a series of standalone soundtrack releases that follow the same-titled compilation which explores rare and unreleased horror gems from the label archive. This new limited 50th anniversary blood-red vinyl edition of this cult, sought-after soundtrack—a masterpiece of Italian Giallo cinema—is fully remastered from original tapes, includes two bonus tracks and is destined to become a staple for the collectors of the genre and for the fans of the golden age of Italian and horror cinema, making it an essential release of Record Store Day 2022.80039.00
ChrissiBack In The Day10″Making R&B neo-soul and sitting amongst Britain’s world beating alternative black music scene Chrissi is a bright new talent in pop, combining the witty and emotive lyricism of Winehouse, with the avant-garde production style of Solange and the cultural potency of Jorja Smith. Born in Essex to a Trinidadian family; music is something that has been around Chrissi all her life. Her musical influences whizz across multiple genres, taking a circuitous route to the current day. From her carnival-obsessed parents who played nothing but soca, to teen years immersed in house and UK garage, to the later discoveries of neo-soul and R&B greats like Jill Scott and Erykah Badu; Chrissi’s music takes inspiration from a litany of stylistic sources.With a voice designed to reveal meaningful tales, Chrissi’s debut EP ‘Back In The Day’ is a kaleidoscopic exploration of the pleasures and pains of modern love which Chrissi wishes to share with the world. Where some might wallow in their emotional scars, Chrissi is content to take power in self-examination and the regenerative bliss following heartbreak, inhabiting a narrative where women’s voices are dominant. 1x 10” black vinyl.100018.00
Collective SoulDisciplined BreakdownLPIn 1994, Southern alt-rockers Collective Soul became one of the biggest bands in the country with the release of their breakthrough self-titled album. Not long after, however, they would find themselves in a messy legal battle with their former manager. That difficult breakup is documented in their 1997 follow-up, Disciplined Breakdown. While the writing process helped the group overcome a challenging time, it also resulted in a best-selling album. Released in March 1997, Disciplined Breakdown landed in the Billboard 200 Top 20 and earned a platinum certification from the RIAA. Limited to 7,400 units worldwide, this 25th-anniversary edition of Disciplined Breakdown is pressed on translucent red vinyl and features newly remastered audio by GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Paul Blakemore and lacquers cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.30030.00
Commander VenusThe Uneventful VacationLPNot long before recording his first songs for Bright Eyes, 14-year-old singer-songwriter Conor Oberst co-founded Commander Venus alongside bassist (and future Cursive frontman) Tim Kasher, guitarist Robb Nansel (now president of Saddle Creek Records), and drummer Matt Bowen (who would soon join the Faint and be replaced by Ben Armstrong). After releasing their 1995 debut, Do You Feel at Home?, the Omaha indie rockers caught the attention of Wind-up Records, who backed the group’s sophomore album, The Uneventful Vacation. While The Uneventful Vacation marked the musicians’ final record together, before they each embarked on their next ventures, this formative album has since become a cult favorite in the ’90s emo canon. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album, this reissue features red and black smoke vinyl and all-analog mastering from the original tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio. Limited to 4,600 units worldwide, this edition also includes the bonus track “Congratulations!,” which appeared on the original vinyl release.30035.00
Corinne Bailey RaeThe SeaColoured LPHer 2nd album. Not pressed since first release in 2010. Expensive and sought-after today, it gets a first coloured pressing for RSD 2022.A Record Store Day 2022 exclusive of Corinne Bailey Rae’s second studio album The Sea, for the first time on transparent blue vinyl. Securing the title of The Guardian’s best album of 2010 and a Mercury Prize nomination in the same year, this reissue remains faithful to the original recording and packaging. Cut at Abbey Road Studios on 180g vinyl, and features the singles I’d Do It All Again, Paris Nights/New York Mornings and Closer.100030.00
Dana GillespieFoolish SeasonsLPVERY rare and sought-after 1968 debut album from legendary British singer (still active mainly in the blues idoim), only ever issued in the USA. Includes two previously unavailable tracks that were included on a UK test pressing, which as close as this album got it to being issued outside the US.Foolish Seasons’: Dana Gillespie’s first album makes its U.K. vinyl debut in this special RSD release of one of the great lost albums of 1960s British pop. This VERY rare and sought-after 1968 album from the legendary British singer-songwriter was only ever issued in the U.S. and over the years the LP’s reputation amongst collectors has grown with original copies now routinely selling for three figure sums. Although it never came out in England, Decca kept the masters to the intended U.K. pressing which contained two previously unreleased self-penned tracks; the blue-eyed soul bop ‘Goin’ Round in Circles’ and the orchestral ‘Come To My Arms’ which could almost have been a Bond theme. Dana would eventually become known as a blues singer, but at the outset of her recording career, her sound is an excellent barometer of what was happening on the swinging-London music scene, with the breezy psych-pop of ‘You Just Gotta Know My Mind’, a Donovan composition that he himself never recorded, the Marianne Faithfull-esque chamber-folk of ‘Tears in My Eyes’ and the Françoise Hardy sounding ‘Souvenirs of Stefan’. Other highlights are the orchestral sunshine pop of ‘Life Is Short’ and ‘London Social Degree’, both penned by cult British pop/rocker Billy Nicholls; the gothic blues of ‘Dead’, and an eccentric cover of Richard Fariña’s ‘Hard Lovin’ Loser’. Dana’s own compositions also stand out, particularly the psych-folk title track: In the U.K. Dana was at the vanguard of the immerging female singer-songwriter scene, as the only British female artists publishing and singing their own songs at this point were fellow Decca labelmate Twinkle, Sandy Denny and Christine McVie. Arranged by Mike Vickers of Manfred Mann and produced by Wayne Bickerton, the sound of ‘Foolish Seasons’ is luscious and imaginative. The songs are brought to life by an illustrious group of session musicians including Mike Vickers, and fellow Manfred Mann member Mike Hugg. Big Jim Sullivan who played on David Bowie’s first album on Deram, and Blue Mink founder Herbie Flowers on bass. These were joined by John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page, who only a few years later would have their own band Led Zeppelin. All tracks have been remastered from the original tapes, and this special RSD release comes in a gatefold sleeve with notes by Dana and new artwork featuring photographs taken by legendary rock photographer Gered Mankowitz who shot the original U.S album cover.100027.00
Def LeppardHigh n DryPic. discHigh and Dry, Def Leppard’s second album was released in 1981, and was the first produced by long term collaborator Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange, it was the album that cemented the bands status in both the UK and America. This version is presented for the first time as a picture disc100030.00
Dermot KennedyDoves + Ravens1LP ClearDoves & Ravens is Dermot Kennedy’s debut EP. It was released on April 14, 2017. Five years since it’s release, it will be pressed on Vinyl for the first time.80027.00
Dire StraitsLove Over Gold (40th Anniversary Half Speed Master -War Child Version)LPHalf-speed master of the Dire Straits album Love Over Gold, cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road, to celebrate the album’s 40th anniversary.  A number one album in the UK following its original release in September 1982, the album featured two singles ‘Private Investigations’ and ‘Industrial Disease’. This limited edition reissue for Record Store Day will feature an embossed lithograph, plus an insert with a brand new essay about the album including a new interview with Mark Knopfler, and a certificate of authenticity from Abbey Road Studios. Love Over Gold is one of this year’s War Child exclusive releases in the UK.175040.00
Dusty SpringfieldSee All Her Faces 50th Anniversary2LPExpanded edition of this fine record (a compilation of odds and ends that actually made a very cohesive album), not available on vinyl since 1972. Includes 6 additional singles/b-sides from the era.Stunning limited edition of Dusty’s 1972 collection, expanded to two discs to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2022
Features the original album plus a mini-LP of bonus cuts from the period, both re-mastered at Abbey Road – Enhanced artwork with added photos and archive material -Heavyweight BLACK vinyl -Long out of print Technically Dusty’s seventh studio album, See All Her Faces is a collection of tracks from the late 1960s and early 1970s, and released on the Philips label in 1972. The original album was never released in the U.S., though some of the tracks had appeared on singles there.
Amongst the many highlights was the bossa nova-influenced title track, another bossa style number, Come for a Dream, co-written by Antonio Carlos Jobim, as well as beautifully orchestrated pop ballads, like I Start Counting, and a stab at a Motown-style groover Girls It Ain’t Easy. There were also some deeply soulful tracks, echoing her ‘In Memphis’ LP, such as Tony Joe White’s Willie & Laura Mae Jones, as well as featuring songwriting royalty in the shape of Goffin & King’s That Old Sweet Roll (Hi-De-Ho), Jimmy Webb’s album-opener Mixed Up Girl and Greenwich and Barry co-writes – What Good Is I Love You and Nothing Is Forever. Bonus tracks – This unique package includes an additional LP of rare tracks, recordings from the shelved ‘Faithful’ album along with out-takes from the original album sessions.

Esther MarrowSister WomanLPA long-overlooked gem from the Fantasy Records vaults, the 1972 album Sister Woman finds Esther Marrow incorporating socially-conscious lyricism with a blend of jazz, gospel, and R&B influences, backed by an all-star line-up of musicians—including drummer Bernard Purdie, guitarist Cornell Dupree, and bassist Chuck Rainey.

Housed in a tip-on jacket.40039.00
Flash & The DynamicsThe New York SoundLPBeginning in the mid-’60s, musicians were filling the clubs with an irresistible combination of soul, R&B, and Afro-Cuban dance rhythms. By the turn of the decade, the style—known as “boogaloo”—had evolved, often integrating socially conscious lyricism (in both English and Spanish), rock and funk influences, and a heavy dose of psychedelia. That sound is captured in Flash & The Dynamics’ The New York Sound—a 1971 rarity from the Fania Records vaults. The album—which marks the band’s sole title—blends traditional Latin melodies with distorted guitars, soulful psychedelia, and funky rhythms. Listeners will be transported to another era with jams like “Everybody’s Got Soul,” “Guajira Sicodélica,” and the trippy instrumental, “Electric Latin Soul.” Returning to vinyl for the first time in decades, The New York Sound features all-analog mastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Housed in a tip-on jacket, this special edition has been pressed exclusively for RSD 2022 on 180-gram purple vinyl at RTI for an optimal listening experience.30039.00

JennyLeeHeart TaxLPThis record was started in so cal 4 years ago… And the bulk of it finished in salt lake city.. I was in dire need of a change .. I had so ,much energy , but wasn’t really allowing myself the space to fully realize my ideas .. I found over the past few years w the whole world being at odds and so much uncertainty, I was actually able to access the depth of my creativity in ways I haven’t before.. things were quiet, I felt calm and for the first time in a long while, I was comfortable w my introspection .. I wanted this album to be more lyrically based, and really encompass me as an artist , not just a musician.. I incorporated my paintings for the art, which I was also able to dive deeper with here in Utah.. and let myself go.. to be free.. instead of policing my every move, I decided to really allow the stream of my consciousness take over.. and through it I felt a lot of healing of old baggage and release of old energy.. while this album feels very present day Jenny, it also embodies a lot of old feelings I kept pent up for so long..
I also had the pleasure of collaborating w golden suns, and it was such a delight to get a new perspective on how the record would sound… I didn’t really know what I wanted until Utah..

Phil LynottThe Philip Lynott AlbumLP colouredTo mark Record Store Day in 2022 and the 40th Anniversary of its original release, Universal Music Catalogue are reissuing Thin Lizzy singer Phil Lynott’s 1982 solo album ‘The Philip Lynott Album’ on LP for the very first time, on limited edition white vinyl. ‘The Philip Lynott Album’ has been newly mastered for 180 gm vinyl at Abbey Road Studios, and is housed in an eye-catching black and gold sleeve reproducing the original artwork. Originally released in September 1982, ‘The Philip Lynott Album’ was the singer’s second solo venture, following on from ‘Solo In Soho’ two years earlier. It was recorded and released between Thin Lizzy’s eleventh and twelfth studio albums ‘Renegade’ (1981) and ‘Thunder And Lightning’ (1983). This 40th anniversary vinyl release adds the 1981 remix of ‘Yellow Pearl’; a No. 14 hit in January ’82, it was co-written with Midge Ure of Ultravox and used as the theme music for Top of the Pops between 1981 and 1986, but omitted from the original UK LP and cassette versions. Two further singles – ‘Together’ and ‘Old Town’ – were also taken from the album. In addition to Midge, the line-up on ‘The Philip Lynott Album’ includes his Ultravox band mate Rusty Egan, plus Thin Lizzy members Scott Gorham, Snowy White, Gary Moore and Brian Downey. Two of the tracks – ‘Old Town’ and ‘Ode To Liberty (The Protest Song)’ – were co-written by Phil and Jimmy Bain, bass player with Rock bands Dio and Rainbow (and perhaps more surprisingly, on Kate Bush’s 1981 single ‘Sat In Your Lap’). Mark Knopfler adds guitar to ‘King’s Call’ and Huey Lewis plays harmonica on ‘Tattoo (Giving It All Up For Love)’ and ‘Ode To A Black Man’. Phil Lynott was a founding member, singer and bass player with Thin Lizzy, who had fifteen UK Top 40 singles and fourteen Top 40 albums between 1973 and 2020. He had a further four Top 40 solo singles, including the 1985 No. 5 ‘Out In The Fields’, a collaboration with guitarist Gary Moore. He was also the singer on Moore’s 1979 No. 8 single ‘Parisienne Walkways’. Phil featured on the best-selling 1978 concept album ‘Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of War of the Worlds’, playing (and singing) the role of Parson Nathaniel. The following year Phil, along with Thin Lizzy’s Brian Downey and Scott Gorham, collaborated with the Sex Pistols’ Paul Cook and Steve Jones, releasing the No. 28 Christmas single ‘A Merry Jingle’ under the name The Greedies. Phil died in Januray 1986, and is commemorated by a bronze statue, erected in 2005 on Harry Street in his home town of Dublin.

Rizzle KicksStereo TypicalColoured LP10th anniversary of the band’s debut album. Previously only released on vinyl as an offical store run of 1000. Album features ‘Down With The Trumpets’, ‘Mama Do The Hump’ and ‘When I Was A Youngster’.To mark Record Store Day in 2022 Universal Music Catalogue are making Rizzle Kick’s 2011 album ‘Stereo Typical’ available as an LP, on limited edition light green vinyl. ‘Stereo Typical’ has been newly mastered for 180 gm vinyl at Abbey Road Studios, and is housed in an eye-catching gatefold sleeve reproducing the original artwork. ‘Stereo Typical’ was the Brighton Hip-Hop duo’s debut album, peaking at No. 5 . It includes the singles ‘Down With The Trumpets’ (No. 8), ‘When I Was A Youngster’ (No. 8 – included in the soundtrack to director Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony at the 2012 London Olympic Games), the Fatboy Slim-produced ‘Mama Do The Hump’ (No. 2 – denied the top spot by Jessie J’s ‘Domino’, despite a promo video featuring a cameo appearance from James Corden) and ‘Traveller’s Chant’ (No. 44). The album was well-received by the media, with The Guardian describing it as a “cute soundbed for quickfire lyrics that reveal them to be typical teenage boys”, while the NME felt it had “a boundless charm that’s hard not to like”. Q Magazine called Rizzle Kicks “a pop prospect with a winning charm you just can’t teach”, and the US AllMusic site said, “Stereo Typical’s good-natured swagger marks Rizzle Kicks out as one of the British urban scene’s most entertaining new talents.” A black vinyl LP edition of ‘Stereo Typical’ was released via the band’s website in April 2012, and limited to 1,000 units. If you can track a copy down, expect to pay more than £60. Rizzle Kicks were Jordan ‘Rizzle’ Stephens and Harley ‘Sylvester’ Alexander-Sule; they met while attending rap and performance workshops with the Brighton-based charity AudioActive, and later both atended the BRITs School. In September 2011, Rizzle Kicks were featured artists on Olly Mur’s No. 1 single ‘Heart Skips A Beat’, which they performed at the 2012 BRIT Awards, whilst ‘Mama do The Hump’ was nominated for British Single of the Year at The BRIT Awards in 2013 (they lost out to ‘Skyfall’ by Adele). The duo released their second album, ‘Roaring 20s’ in September 2013, when it peaked at No. 3 and gave them three further Top 20 singles – ‘Lost Generation’ (No. 6), ‘Skip To The Good Bit’ (No. 16) and ‘Tell Her’ (No. 14). Since then both Jordan and Harley have both pursued careers in acting; Jordan appeared in the E4 TV drama Glue in 2014 and in Star Wars: Rogue One in 2016. Harley appeared in the British crime drama The Guvnors in 2014 and the ITV drama series Unforgotten in 2015100030.00

“Vibraphonist Milt Jackson was a frequent presence on Blue Note sessions in the bebop era. As part of the fabled 1500 Series begun in 1956, the label issued the 12” compilation Milt Jackson and The Thelonious Monk Quintet which expanded Jackson’s 10” LP Wizard of the Vibes with tracks from 1948 and 1951 dates led by Monk. The album cover was the first designed by Reid Miles.

RSD Lists With Pricing, RIP Mark Lanegan, New Ghost, Bryan Adams, Midlake And More

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is well out there.

Its RSD wishlist week….sorry i was napping last week and we put out the american RSD list…here is the correct one for here/Europe and the UK with lots of info…

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13IFU5FAIbsE4RZi5tumDjQTQN4o-DeehL4eNm5WYvDM/edit#gid=0

https://recordstoreday.co.uk/rsd-list/
 

Tonight , we will ( well truth be told,  Shane will,) send out some record company lists for the day RECORD STORE DAY Saturday April 23rd with prices to give you a better idea….tonight we will send Integral/Pias, Sony, Orchard, Proper, Shellshock, SRD and Cargo…we haven’t received pricing from Warner, Uni , LITTLE AMBER FISH, RoM yet as well as a few smaller companies as well…Warner is due so should make this newsletter.

Will hopefully send Universal and anyone else next week.

We are asking for your help here as regards the wishlist…most of ye know the drill but if this is new to anyone…this spiel  is for ye… a wishlisted record  is a record you would hope to get on the day…you are greatly helping us by sending back any wishlist you may have as it allows us to fight harder for stock we need and also if its a rather obscure record it makes sure it is ordered in …unfortunately we cant guarantee you will get your record  but most people who wishlist us end up been happy ….so critically a wishlist is not a guarantee but we will do our best to secure enough stock to cover the wishlists…thats the hope anyway! 

I need wishlists back by close of play weds the 9th of March…that is only 2 weeks away….some record companies need the orders back to them on the 10th of March …so the full list is above and here Shane will do some magic to get out  some record companies RSD lists with pricing here:

WARNER RSD 2022 List with Pricing

CARGO RSD 2022 List with Pricing

SRD RSD 2022 List with Pricing

PROPER RSD 2022 List with Pricing

The Orchard RSD 2022 (Drop 1) List with Pricing

PIAS/Integral RSD 2022 List with Pricing

SONY RSD 2022 List with Pricing

A lot always gets said about Record Store Day, some positives, some negatives…its a game of opinions folks…there was an article by a record shop owner in England doing the rounds where he felt a year off from it would maybe allow the plants catch up and allow smaller labels and artists to get their records pressed, he also argues about the curation of the stock for the day …a bit more merit to his second point for me…re the first point though, big or small to my knowledge,( i have asked some local artists who do vinyl runs), you have to book your slot at the plant, it is 6 to 9 months lead time to get a record pressed at the moment..it used be 12 weeks….canceling RSD for the year won’t solve that problem…alleviate it slightly, fair enough,  but that’s all ….there are probably 100 records a week sold to me if not more, we cherry pick what we stock or think we can sell…so its 4 weeks worth of  records sold to us in one week…..its not clogging up the plants completely….increase capacity is the only thing that will properly alleviate the queues  but that’s a risky venture and an expensive one also…but cancel RSD over the supply chain and queues at plants , i would think that’s very extreme…the day was set up to help record shops and we sell more records on that day than any other day in the year…probably times 2 or 3…i would regard it so highly and so important in our year…the man who wrote the article says the job of the record shop in its simplest terms is to sell records…so let us sell them i say…game of opinions folks.

Also there is a second smaller release day for RSD on the 18th June which are for the releases that won’t make the starting post for the main event on Saturday the 23rd April…wishlists appreciated folks!!

Hey all! Hope ye’re all keeping well. Sad news about Mark Lanegan, a huge loss. I saw him supporting Guns n Roses in Slane a few years back, he was quality.

A few bits of interest again this week:

First up, one biggie, well two, the latest Daft Punk reissues! ‘Homework‘ and ‘Alive 1997‘. They’ve been out of print for a while and sought after, so great to have them reissued now. They’re coming through Warner on April 15th.

Secondly, one of my favourites, IRON MAIDEN, will be releasing a commemorative cassette of their classic album ‘Number of the Beast‘. Yes, a cassette. They haven’t taken off at all like vinyl but definitely collectors will have an interest! Out March 18th.

Next, Seattle lads PEARL JAM will be releasing the two volumes of their greatest hits on vinyl!

On the Irish front, 2 very interesting releases. Firstly, alt/noise rock band, JUST MUSTARD will be releasing their second album at the end of May, here’s the new single, ‘Still’ from the album https://youtu.be/fibUUapxQt4
Sounds class!

Also, Limerick-born, London-based, SINÉAD O BRIEN will be releasing a new album on June 10th. Here’s a song from it https://youtu.be/K4_vsiz1isc
I like the strong accent! She writes poetry as well and has been published in London.

Christy MooreRide On1-LP, 140g White VinylRide On is an album by Irish folk singer Christy Moore, originally released in 1984. Its title track remains one of his most popular songs. A number of songs relate the actions of those involved in political struggles, or those affected by those struggles; such as “Viva la Quinte Brigada” which is concerned with the Irish contingent amongst the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War; or “El Salvador” dealing with the civil war in that country in the 1980s. Other songs deal with Irish history – “The City of Chicago”, about emigration to America during the Irish famines of the late 1840s; “Back Home in Derry” written by Bobby Sands about the transportation to Australia of convicts; and “Lisdoonvarna” celebrating a music festival that took place annually in that town until the early 1980s. Since Ride On is widely accepted as a landmark Moore album, it has been available ever since its original release and is regarded as one of the best possible introductions to the artist.

Everly BrothersHey Doll Baby1 x LP Baby Blue Vinyl – RSD2021 is the 65th anniversary since The Everly Brothers released their first single in 1956 (“Keep A Lovin’ Me”). This new compilation is curated by Tom Petty’s daughter Adria Petty in conjunction with Don Everly and Phil Everly’s widow with the objective to remind the world of the greatness of the Everly’s, plus introduce the duo to new, younger, hipster audience. This is not a “Greatest Hits” package. Whilst it does include some hits (eg: “Cathy’s Clown” – their biggest selling single), but the objective of this compilation is to highlight many of the lesser-known songs that are equally as good as the well-known hits. This will attract a new assessment of the band by musicians, critics and media, and appeal to a broader audience – selling to many younger fans who may not even have heard of the group. The album will be released on baby blue coloured vinyl for RSD with a fresh, contemporary and hip approach to the cover art. 17 tracks€33.00April 23rd

MotorheadThe Lost Tapes Vol.22LP blue vinylCassette tapes. Remember those? Those things with the dual spools and loads of wide brown plastic recording string that’d occasionally unravel and hang out of the shell, requiring a pencil and firm wrist to spin back into place? Yeah, well, once upon a time, old-school sound systems contained cassette decks for the express purpose of recording shows, and these “cassette” things were a standard part of every tour. Motörhead were certainly no exception, recording show after show. They contain gold, pure aural gold, and had for many years sat hundreds of feet underground in a small cave Lemmy owned, guarded by small, hairy centurions in Roman armor with small spears and bad attitudes. Only the magic password would release them, and thankfully, Lem had scribbled it down and left it inside an old sketch book for us (no, were won’t tell you the password, although it did have the words ’nie nie nie’ in it). There were loads of the dirty, dusty, greasy little buggers gathered, with the likes of Lyon, Liverpool, Hamburg and Chippenham (!!) scrawled in biro on the tiny labels alongside a date…and thus we are delighted to announce that this unique collection of live gems will now be heard by the world, via carefully digitized transfers, in a new series titled The Löst Tapes. Volume two has been hand-picked by the increasingly deaf, but well-meaning (and hydrated!) Motörhead team, along with surviving members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and sees the trio in blistering form on the Snake Bite Love album tour recorded at the University of East Anglia, Norwich on 18th October 1998.€45.00April 23rd

Sara KaysStruck By Lightning12″ Blue VinylSara Kays is like the one friend you have who actually listens and watches as much as she speaks. For the most part, her life is “quiet.” Her free time consists of hanging out with her brother and mother, playing soccer with her friends, and frequenting thrift shops. She loves warm beanies and also doesn’t understand “why people don’t eat croutons like chips.” When she does get “loud,” everybody else listens just as intently. She’s unassumingly built a rapt audience of 2 million followers across social media platforms, gathered hundreds of millions of streams, and received acclaim from Billboard, People, BuzzFeed, American Songwriter, Flaunt, FLOOD and more. Observations, thoughts, and truths straight from the Notes app on her phone inform diary-style stories often upheld by not much more than gentle acoustic guitar, soft ukulele, and a keyboard murmur. In 2021, the Nashville-based solo singer and songwriter makes a heart-to-heart connection on her Struck By Lightning EP [Atlantic Records] and more music on the horizon.
Throughout 2021, Sara assembled the EP with Martinez, teasing its arrival with “Backseat Rider,” “Traffic Lights,” “Future Kids,” and “Picture Of You.” The single and title track “Struck By Lightning” [feat. Cavetown] captures the nuances of her confessionally quirky lyrics, glassy melodies, and chantable observations. It hinges around an ironically beautiful image of “Something this town will forever talk about, the two kids that were laying down and struck by lightning in front of your house.”
The Struck By Lightning EP is released for the first time on vinyl, as a blue vinyl 7 track EP for RSD 2022.

The main point of attack of this weeks ad is friday March 4th …ah Terry harsh kid…Terry is a pushing on geezer from the east end of London town who one day 5 or 6  years ago said to me…” you know it was in your ad” and i was looking at him as if he had 3 heads and was from London town…he repeated it a bit more floury in a thick London accent “ it was in your fuckin AD” …Ad…is he talking about my weekly masterpiece…fucking Ad he is calling it…i never thought of it like that and off course he was right, would;nt tell him that though….should;nt have said he was pushing on either i suppose! Rumour has it he pushed Adam Ant off the stage they shared when playing a gig together back in the day in London town…be careful out there Bob! …anyway the 4th of March…sorry first….RSD will jump upon us very soon and i know theres a few leaks and slippages out there already…we will as ever, like every other year, send out the full lists when we are allowed to and we shall ask for wishlists as usual and will keep the lines of communication as open as we can…so more on that over the weeks…critical point …a wishlisted record is not a guarantee..anyway more on that over the weeks but back to the AD.

 We were caught a bit by surprise with the RSD 2022 List of Releases. It’s just been announced, here is a link to the list: RSD 2022 Releases

We will have more in-depth info next week with prices but will start the wishlist in the shop now so the book is open now for any requests!

Right so, the 4th of March, Warner have the brand new BAND OF HORSES album on BMG entitled “ things are great” …6th album now from Ben Bridwell’s alt country rockers from Seattle…there has been a lineup change and Ben says he is back with renewed vigor…this is available on CD, std lp and indie shop only coloured vinyl…i like their sound…here is “ in need of repair” from the new record

BMG also have JOHN MCLAUGHLIN “ the montreux years” on CD and LP, PINK FLOYD MUSIC LTD reissue debut “ piper at the gates of dawn” on mono, yep remastered from the original mono tapes…remaster was 2017 and a very limited release in 2018 so released again now.


Rhino have a reissue of RANDY NEWMANs 4th album “ good old boys” as a 2lp, there is a new MARIANNE FAITHFULL album “ vagabond ways” on cd and lp, mainly covers i think, produced by Daniel Lanois…. brand new SABATON album also out on the 4th March via nuclear blast “ the war to end all wars “ …well hopefully not!…cd, deluxe cd and lp on this one.

Last one from Warner for the 4th of March is the second album from MIKE CAMPBELL AND THE DIRTY KNOBS “ external combustion” on BMG…Mike was TOM PETTYs sidekick in the heartbreakers for years and this is now his second album since his life changed forever in 2017…CD only for now on this one, lp later in the year…here is “ wicked man” from the new album…good ole fashioned rock n roll

UNIVERSAL for the 4th March have the debut album by KAWALA on EMI records called “ better with you” …here is im good like this from the album

Bluenotes Tone Poet series returns with 2 more titles on the 4th March …with SONNY REDs “ out of the blue” and GRANT GREENs “ the latin bit” getting the high quality represses out of Record Technology Incorporated ( RTI)

Because music has a reissue of the CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS debut album “ Chaleur Humaine” on vinyl.

Lovely, interesting Irish release ( half cork like) out on the 4th of march via Dimple discs is the debut album by Jackknife Lee and Cathal Couglan TELEFIS … the record is called A HAON… it  is an exploration of Irish nostalgia and modern global hierarchies,

strange characters and caricatures springing from Coughlan’s fertile imagination,

while Jacknife Lee creates irresistible electro-funk backdrops full of melodic,

squelchy synths and thunderous basslines.

Here is one of  the tracks from it “ mister imperator”

The Orchard for the 4th of March  sees the release of STEREOPHONICS brand new album ‘Oochya!’, their 12th studio album featuring the new single ‘Hanging On Your Hinges’. 

The veteran Welsh rock band were formed 30 years ago, in 1992, and 2022 also marks 25 years since the release of their debut album. 

We also have Canadian folk band The Weather Station – ‘How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars‘, self-described as “a quiet, strange album of ballads” – please note stock limited so cuts may have to be made….at the moment we are allocated for 10 copies of the indies vinyl version but with the orchard trust me that can change….just warning ye…last years album was really good…here is “ endless time” from the new one

We hope to get a few copies of THE CORAL self titled lp reissue via ROM on white vinyl …it is expensive at 44 euro…due around the 4th march also.

Proper have a nice few for the 4th of March…Highlights  include the brand new studio album from Dolly Parton…available on cd and lp,  the debut release from the brilliant CMAT….here is “ lonely” from the debut album

CMAT is the stage name of Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson, from Dublin Ireland, one to watch out for me thinks…she says  “I realised the thing I was best at in music was toplining – coming up with melodies, lyrics, hooks, arrangements, structure; the skeletal form of everything is what I know I can do.”

Well thats some start! Available on cd, std lp, indies lp and cassette i think also.

 Proper also have a  beautifully repackaged reissue from Mulligan Records of the landmark Andy Irvine/Paul Brady album on indies coloured lp and cd….beautiful album.

Going to hand ye over to Shane now who will run through a few interesting but further down the line releases with ye..

Cheers Ray! Hey everyone, hope ye’re good and the week is going smoothly enough. Nothing massive this week compared to last but some interesting ones coming up nonetheless that we thought were worth a mention.

First up is a reissue of the excellent debut record by Goldfrapp, ‘Felt Mountain’. It’s going to be available on limited gold vinyl which is nice. That will be out on March 25th through Warner. Here’s one of the singles from it, ‘Utopia’ https://youtu.be/QUB7e3BtnvU

 Second up is a very limited ‘fastest finger first’ 12″ EP release from up and coming London band FOLLY GROUP, they’ve a post-punky sound, the singer of IDLES is a fan and has been giving them rave reviews. Lots of interesting stuff coming out of London. You picked a good spot Bob! Here’s a track from the new EP https://youtu.be/ZjyBa126yH0

Thirdly is the brand new album by CYPRESS HILL called ‘Back in Black’ (sounds familiar!) which will also be out on March 25th. Their last one ‘Elephants on Acid’ was quality, so looking forward to it.

Also, just a quick note, there are a few other interesting ones coming. A first timer on vinyl live album by QUEENSRYCHE, an interesting hidden gem 70s compilation from David Hepworth and a HALL AND OATES reissue of ‘Marigold Sky’

Anyway those are the main ones that are coming down the line, but not too far away either.

Back to you Ray! Enjoy the gig tonight!

Right so , moving onto the releases for the 25th of Feb…Warner have the new JOHNNY MARR album on BMG/ADA called “ fever dreams pts 1 to 4” …it comprises a few eps released last year…i really like Johnny’s three solo albums to be honest, all good …this one is available as CD, std black vinyl as well as a limited turquoise vinyl…we were allocated 16 copies of this version so fine for now but wont last long either…here is “ lightning people” from the new record

Warner also for the 25th Feb have a brand new SOFT CELL album on BMG also…” happiness not included” …good title…MARC ALMOND and DAVE BALL return with their 5th studio album and first album in 20 years!

Lots of talk/articles online about “the cd revival”…it never needed to be revived from where we sit, granted we do more vinyl but we do sell nice levels on cd as well…generally on the new releases to be fair…back catalogue is slow to be fair ( our customers have the back catologue already!!) …in the uk in 2021 physical music was up 7.3% on 2020…the first growth in physical music in nearly 20 years…see the cd was in decline year after year…CD sales increased by nearly 2% last year for again the first time in 20 years…vinyl grew once more by over 20% in the uk to 135 million pounds…is there a stabilization of the physical formats? We hope so obviously!…streaming has the bulk of the revenue with 85% of the market and downloads fell again by 27% …back to the CD…if you are an up and coming band /artist ( in my opinion) you have to produce a cd..ideally vinyl also..tee shirts, mugs, lyric books, hats, sandals..anything else you can sell from your merch table after a small show…you will sell them…bands that don’t produce a CD are nuts in my opinion…why not ? cost of making them is low and they will sell…why not make them…it makes no sense …and we saw it in the last few years that some bands/artists were not releasing their albums on CD…mistake in my opinion, you should be….CD sales were probably helped along last year by the trouble with stocking vinyl and also  the price difference between the two formats…sometimes a CD is a third of the price of the lp…thats mad as well…look from where things were for the physical record shops 10/12 years ago…its great to see growth again…there was a cull of record shops back then when probably only 20% of shops survived…over 200 here in 2005 and down to 40 by 2013..UK similar…over 2000 down to less than 300 shops in 2012…last shop standing was really a thing…fingernails stuff i remember it well, running on fumes..not enjoyable…so look hopefully a period of stability ahead for us record shops with lots of cds and lps selling and a few cassettes throw in !!

Going to hand over to Shane now as he tells ye about some interesting further down the line releases …

Sound Ray, cheers!

Hey everyone! Hope ye’re all getting on ok! Definitely some interesting ones to mention this week. Biggies as well.
First up is the third album by Australian band Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. They’ve a really good summery indie sound. We all enjoyed their last two in the shop. Lots of good stuff coming from Australia in recent years. This one is called ‘Endless Rooms’ and it’s out on the 6th of May. We were only allocated a small amount of the indies yellow coloured vinyl… so as Bob and Ray say, ‘fastest fingers first’ for them here 
Best to order straight from the link there if interested as emails might be missed over night/until morning.


Second up is the brand new album by RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS called ‘Unlimited Love’. It’s going to be released on April 1st. First album back with legendary guitar player John Frusciante since ‘Stadium Arcadium’ I think in the 06/07 season. They released the first single from it a few days ago and John’s playing/sound is recognizable straight away…here tis https://youtu.be/OS8taasZl8k
He’s a lucky boy to be alive, like a lot of musicians down the years.
Great to see him back. We will have the indies coloured version plus other formats!

Thirdly, and another biggie, LIAM GALLAGHER‘s new solo record is coming on May 27th. ‘C’mon You Know’ it’s called. Liam has been doing well in the last few years. 

and finally, two quick mentions. There’s a nice Hip-Hop compilation coming on March 18th, not too far away, with loads of big names included. It’s on limited coloured vinyl from Music on Vinyl.

And we will have vinyl copies of the debut album by Cork band ROWAN, they’ve a good sound, here’s ‘Everybody Talks’  https://youtu.be/T84Iy_7G1dQ

Back to the gaffer!

Thanks Shane!

We have a few videos to share as well…Young Adam makes his debut!!

here’s last week’s: https://youtu.be/drhvKSIDUv4

and this weeks vid: https://youtu.be/Rcm_JHxTDFU

Right Integral for the 25th feb were to have the new SPIRITUALIZED album but its now moved to April…it turned into a dogs dinner for us as we thought we were allocated 4 copies of deluxe vers and 4 of jap vers …only to be told this week just 1 copy of each now…had to disappoint 6 people…not finding a record when someone buys it off the site and overselling are two parts of the job that bug the hell out of me…the missing record is one of those things, human error somewhere, it will happen, apologise and move on…its an error….but the overselling does my head in…give us a firm allocation, be it 1 but dont say 10 and then its 2…it leaves us exposed and you cant blame folk for being pissed off…anyway spiritualized was a dogs dinner as was slash cd boxset..sorry again to those affected.

PROPER for the 25th feb have a brand new BETH HART release on Provogue “ a tribute to Led Zeppelin” on cd, std 2lp and indies only orange 2lp…some undertaking!!

Here is “ good times, bad times” from the album…they make a fine fist of it in fairness

Proper also have a brand new TANGERINE DREAM album as well as the new HALF MAN HALF BISCUIT CD.

INTEGRAL for the 4th March have a reissue on London records of BRONSKI BEATS “ age of consent” , there is a brand new album from PORCHES on Domino called “ all day gentle hold!” and SOUL JAZZ records have a couple of nice releases…STUDIO ONE DUB gets reissued for the first time in 18 years ..available as an orange coloured CD and as a strictly one press only on 2lp orange vinyl with download code…lastly SOUL JAZZ reissue THE WINSTONS “ color him father” on LP and a one sided 12”…” amen brother” a track on the album is the most sampled drum break of all time..over 5000 samples…THE WINSTONS were made up from the backing bands of Otis Redding and Curtis Mayfield ( say no more nearly Raymond) and only released this one album before splitting up ( citing difficulties in america with touring due to their inter racial line up)….this lp has not been out for over 50 years and now soul jazz are putting it out…one press only again…here is “ amen brother” from THE WINSTONS
