DESCRIPTION : Alfredito “”Sabor”” Linares is a globetrotting pianist, composer, bandleader and producer from Lima, Peru with a long, prolific career in hot Latin music spanning more than half a century.Though Linares has come to recent international fame through his work with William “”Quantic”” Holland, he was already quite popular and famous in his adopted countries of Colombia and Venezuela in the 1970s and 80s during the salsa boom.However, his career began in Lima, backing timbalero Ñico Estrada at age 17 in 1961, and Alfredito’s first notable recording as a sideman was a few years later on the now legendary
‘El Combo de Pepe’ album for IEMPSA/Odeon.Subsequently Linares would advance his career by recording two fabulous records under his own capable leadership as Alfredo Linares Y Su Sonora at the end of the decade for the MAG label.These releases capitalized on recent developments in New York Latin music, namely Latin jazz, boogaloo, descarga (jam session) and what would later be marketed as “”salsa”” with roots in the Cuban guaguancó and guaracha genres.One can hear direct inspiration coming from Joe Cuba, Ricardo Ray, and Eddie Palmieri, especially on the first album, ‘El Pito’, and yet
by the second record, there are plenty of original tunes as well.More importantly there is a ‘swing’ and assertiveness to the playing (and arrangements) that prove every bit as authentic, tough and danceable as their New York inspirations.As Linares himself recounts, “”In that era, we fought against a generation that was half-blind, because the people who understood what we were doing were few.We had to fight hard for our space in Perú, that’s where the swing comes from.”” That special ‘swing’ also emanated from Linares’ ace backing band, which happened to be a talented stable of MAG studio musicians who all understood Cuban and jazz music: percussionists Mario Allison and Coco Lagos, bassist Joey di Roma, Kiko Fuentes and Carlos Muñoz on lead vocals and Melcochita on coro (vocal chorus).According to Linares, the studio band was “”open-ended, some musicians came some days, others on other days…Nilo Espinoza on saxophone, Betico Salas and Tito Chicoma on trumpets.Otto de Rojas played piano, and so did Charlie Palomares, who played vibraphone.Another good musician was guitarist Carlos Hayre.”” Though the recordings were cut “”live in the studio”” and many were basically composed on the spot, the intrinsic strength and maturity of the performances on ‘Yo Traigo Boogaloo’ stand the test of time as one of Peru’s most important contributions to tropical music across
the decades, establishing Alfredito Linares as a master of the idiom and serving as a harbinger for great things to come for him in Colombia and Venezuela.Long sought after by collectors, DJs and lovers of hard salsa and boogaloo alike, ‘Yo Traigo Boogaloo’ is now lovingly reissued in replica form with the original cover art, remastered from the studio tapes, reproducing that magical MAG studio sound for today’s aficionados to enjoy like it was 1969 all over again.”

|Beck, St.Vincent||No Distraction / Uneventful Days||Capital US||LIMITED 7″||ST.VINCENT REMIXES BECK “Uneventful Days (St.Vincent Remix)” Out Now St.Vincent a/k/a Annie Clark has unfolded new dimensions of “Uneventful Days” a/k/a “quite possibly the best song Beck has made since Morning Phase” (STEREOGUM) from seven-time GRAMMY-winner Beck’s current album Hyperspace a/k/a “his best in a decade” (PEOPLE).
St.Vincent, who plays guitar, bass and keys in addition to remixing the song, commented:
“I remixed Beck’s new song, ‘Uneventful Days!’ I guess I was listening to a lot of ’70s Herbie and WAR at the time and wondering how much funk was inside me, too.I sent it to Beck and he dug it, but he said ‘it should be 3 bpm faster.’ And what do you know? HE WAS SO RIGHT.It made all the difference in the groove.”
Released November 22, 2019 on Capitol Records, Hyperspace was immediately hailed as yet another creative peak for modern music’s consummate chameleon: The ASSOCIATED PRESS raved “There is not a boring moment on the entire album,” USA TODAY added “nearly 30 years and 14 albums into his career, Beck has rarely been better than he is on Hyperspace,” while David Fricke of ROLLING STONE’s 4-star lead review likened Beck’s voice on “Uneventful Days” to “David Bowie’s Major Tom checking in from distant orbit.”

|Cherry Ghost||Beneath This Burning Shoreline||Heavenly Recordings||12″||This will be first time the record is released on vinyl.”I thought, if I don’t state my case now I’ll never get that opportunity again.” ‘Beneath This Burning Shorelines’, released in 2010, was the second album from Cherry Ghost – the project of Ivor Novello winning songwriter Simon Aldred.Released on vinyl for the first time, ten years after its release, it stands as Aldred’s bona fide masterpiece – not least by the songwriter himself.
Following the chart success of Cherry Ghost’s debut ‘Thirst For Romance’, Aldred felt disillusioned with touring an album he viewed to be stylistically “schizophrenic.” Whilst proud of the songs on that record, he had visions of something more cohesive, more mood-based – where ideas re-occur, images are fragmented and songs bleed into one another.Similarly, he’d been returning heavily to artists like Sparklehorse and Wilco.After nearly a decade on the dole, once Cherry Ghost brought Aldred financial stability the first thing he did was travel Europe – the album is galvanised by these solo rail journeys through cities like Berlin and Rome.Like Scott Walker’s late 60s work, it’s a romantic vision of a Europe filtered through the lens of an outsider.Atmospherics, too, would be crucial – Aldred had been listening to film soundtracks, and songs here are linked by unmoored instrumental passages.
‘Beneath This Burning Shoreline’ is overwhelmingly in a minor key, and choruses are few – ‘Kissing Strangers’, however, is the album’s only anthemic moment.”That references my days a young gay man” says Aldred, “staggering between bars but yearning for something more.”
The album’s most powerful moment is the haunting ‘My God Betrays’ – “it is” he explains, “a completely bleak portrait.” Inspired by the writings of Albert Camus, the song is an anti-hymn to a malevolent God, a prayer to a Lord who plays to the crowds and turns on the weak.’People Help the People It is Not’.There is, however, some redemption – the chiming ‘Black Fang’ is one of the most successfully realized love songs in Aldred’s back catalogue.A decade on, it remains Aldred’s proudest work – “It’s the one I always go back to, to remind myself what I get out of music.”
|Cherry Ghost||Live at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge – January 25 2015.||Heavenly Recordings||12″ Double Vinyl||As the final act before their hiatus – coming after three critically praised albums in a decade – ‘Live at the Trades Club Hebden Bridge’ is Cherry Ghost performing an intimate, starkly arranged set at the 2015 Heavenly Weekender.Released now for the first time – on double vinyl and download – this is perhaps the best realised collection of songs from Cherry Ghost, the alias of the Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter Simon Aldred.
The instrumentation – Aldred is joined on keyboards and light percussion by Christian Madden and Grenville Harrop – brings to the fore Aldred’s peerless songwriting, his oak-aged, prematurely wisened baritone.’History’ wrote the Quietus in 2014, ‘will be kind to Aldred’, and this collection proves exactly that – with a bit of time and distance, the songs presented here show a highly singular, highly accomplished songwriter, aspiring to the pop classicism of Glen Campbell or Bill Callahan.
All of human life is here – tracking a drizzly Northern gothic of last bus loneliness, late-night Spars, solitary drinkers, factory floors and Gods that betray.And yet, there’s more than meets the eye.There’s magnetic renderings of his best known songs – ‘4AM’, ‘People Help the People’, the soaring ‘Mathematics’ – but surprises reveal themselves.’All I Want’ and ‘Herd Runners’ candidly examine Aldred’s sexuality, whilst the seldom heard b-side ‘Bad Crowd’ reveals Aldred to be a much funnier songwriter than remembered.
What runs right through Aldred’s work, however, is a yearning – a much tested faith in romance – so no wonder that the album ends on its most optimistic notes, at the darkest point of winter nestled in the West Yorkshire valleys, promising clear skies ever closer.
|Chet Baker||Mr.B.||Tidal Waves Music||LP||Chet 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 (Mr.B.) you’ll find Dutch recordings (recorded in 1983 & released in 1984).This rare gem of an album is comprised out of tracks written by some of the top jazz composers of all time (Herbie Hancock, Horace Silver, David Brubeck,..) and played meticulously by Baker and his all-star line-up trio consisting out of Ricardo Del Fra (Ennio Morricone), John Engels (Toots Thielemans, Dizzy Gillespie) and Michel Graillier (Magma, Steve Grossman).On the bonus tracks you’ll also find a top performance from Philip Catherine (Placebo) on guitar.
Be prepared for eight 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.There is a sadness permeating the trumpeter’s sound throughout…a deep and touching beauty can be felt, marking this as one of Chet’s best from the period.
Originally released in 1984, Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the first official reissue of Chet Baker’s classic Mr.B.album.This reissue was remastered by Peter Brussee (Herman Brood) and is featuring the original album cover shot by Hans Harzheim (Pharoah Sanders, Coltrane & Sun Ra).Also included are the original liner notes from jazz writer Wim Van Eyle and two bonus tracks that were not on the original vinyl release.This reissue comes as a deluxe 180g vinyl edition (strictly limited to 1500 copies worldwide) with obi strip…released exclusively for Record Store Day 2020 and available in participating stores on April 18.

The soundtrack accompanied The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos a 2008 British-American nature documentary that explored the massive gathering of lesser flamingos in Tanzania.It was the very first movie released under the Disneynature label.In what may have seemed an unusual move at the time the producers of the film wanted to find a popular artist they liked and combine them with the truly striking imagery the film would produce.This led them to the critically acclaimed British jazz-electronic group Cinematic Orchestra who would go on to compose and perform the soundtrack.Produced by The Cinematic Orchestra and Steve McLaughlin with score orchestration by Teese Gohl it was performed at Air Lyndhurst by The Cinematic Orchestra and the London Metropolitan Orchestra.A deeply evocative soundtrack the multi-layered instrumentation captures beautifully the story of these mysterious creatures.In 2019 the track “Transformation” is being used as the accompanying music for the Ford Focus.Watch advert here:

|Dalvanius and the Fascinations / Golden Harvest||Voodoo Lady / I Need Your Love||WARM||7 inch||Warm launch their new reissue label RE:WARM on Record Store Day by heading south of the equator with a New Zealand 7″ double-header.
Dalvanius and the Fascinations’ “Voodoo Lady” from 1977 which originally was swept aside as a b-side takes over one side.A perfect slice of south pacific disco to set any dance floor alight.
Over the past eighteen months’ Warm’s Ali Tillett and Micky Browne have been discussing records and sharing insights into each other’s record collections.Off the back of this RE:WARM is born as an outlet to showcase music from both their collections that they felt deserved to be revisited and shared with the world as a lot of it had previously been overlooked or worse still, undiscovered.
Both having collected records for twenty years or more, their influences and ever-growing collections range from Folk, Jazz, Soul, AOR, Disco, Funk, House, Balearic and much more in between.So over the months and years to come expect every musical stone to be unturned on their quest to reintroduce friends, Peers and contemporaries to some of their favourite over looked gems, all lovingly repackaged and presented with stunning new art work and original photos.
For their inaugural release to launch the RE:WARM label on record store day 2020 they have gone all the way to the Southern Hemisphere for a New Zealand double header.
First up on the A side is Dalvanius & The Fascinations phenomenal track, Voodoo Lady.On first release this track started life as the B-side of the lead track “Checkmate on Love” but later moved to the A side with a slightly longer Disco Version.This version is more recently starting to appear in collectors want lists and on auction sites around the world.
On the flip is Golden Harvest with their AOR-Disco anthem, I Need Your Love.One of those tracks for premium dancefloor moments of joy and hands in the air excitement.This one started life on the independent N.Z label Impact in 1977 and later in 1978 got the Warner Bros treatment for Neighbouring Australia and was later to be included on their only album Golden Harvest – Golden Harvest.

|Devil’s Witches||Guns, Drugs and Filthy Pictures||Majestic Mountain Records||10″||This release from Devil’s Witches marks the 3 year anniversary from the bands debut.Devil’s Witches started as a one man band and built an audience across those 3 years from initially selling a few hundred copies into thousands of copies; garning critical acclaim from Electric Wizard’s Jus Oborn and Ozzy Osbourne’s bassist Rob Blasko along the way.The presses have continually sold out and became collector’s items with some worth hundreds of pounds each.Having an RSD release is a special gift to the fans who have supported the music and those who have missed out.This two track release is unique in many ways.Firstly Andy Shardlow from The King’s Pistol features as guest bassist on both tracks.Andy has guested on tracks for a split EP before with Saint Karloff and is a fan favourite bass player.Having him on this Devil’s Witches only release is a great inclusion.Also, the opening title track ‘Guns, Drugs & Filthy Pictures’ introduces another new guest in the form of lead guitar player Daniel Jones.Daniel is known online as East London Blues and famously did a much loved cover version of the Devil’s Witches track ‘Motorpsycho’.Having Daniel appear on an official release will be a real treat for fans.His guitar work brings a fantastic new vibe to the band.This being his debut release with Devil’s Witches, it is sure to become a collector’s item.Lastly the track ‘Cross My Path, I’ll Cross Your Face’ marks a style shift from stoner doom rock to full on dark Country music for Devil’s Witches, complete with trotting acoustic guitar, slide guitar and Hank Marvin twang.It sits in a world between Kriss Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and contemporary singer songwriter.This will be a completely unexpected genre shift and will be marked by RSD.The track is an old west fictional narrative based on an event affecting the lead performers friend.She was stabbed outside of her house and robbed.It takes inspiration from the Clint Eastwood movie ‘Unforgiven’ and brings it together with the reality of knife crime in Britain and cathartic fantasy justice.It is sure to be the most special aspect of this RSD release.||Rock||Prog-rock||1000||1500||Plastic Head Distrobution|
|Devon Sproule||The Pink Noise||Tin Angel Records||12″||”
I was writing these half gross, half poetic lines while nursing this newborn, trying not to think too much about the implications of baby-having on my life as a musician. I’d been trying to detangle myself from my identity as a musician even before I had the baby, but that really gave me an extra push. I’m a happier person when I’m not trying to hustle my way to the top of some career ladder. Thinking about the music identity has helped me not get lost in the mother identity, too.We used pink noise on a broken cell phone in my daughter’s room, to keep her from waking up at night. But whatever loops are used to create pink noise, in my middle-of-the-night haze, I would hear crying even when there wasn’t any. Your heart speeds up and your stomach lurches, and of course there are all these crazy hormones from breastfeeding.Pink noise is also used in music mixing, as a sort of sound blanket that wraps evenly around your music. We were living in the country, and my daughter was born in the kitchen, and then we had this big weird side-space set up as the studio. My husband Paul would try to decompress by going and playing — the “gentle jam on the Crumar” from the song Pink Noise — even though there wasn’t enough time to really dig in and create. But it made an incredible soundtrack to all the emotional and ultra-domestic stuff we were doing.So this record is trying to weave together the discomforts, mysteries, and magic of birth with music and identity. I hadn’t thought about releasing any of it, and was OK with letting it go, but when my friend at Tin Angel suggested a 10inch for Record Store Day, it felt like the right amount of slow reentry, independence and integrity, to honor all those feelings and stick my toe back into releasing and touring.Another thing that’s changed our lives a lot has been Paul’s body having all this mysterious inflammation, keeping him from being able to play and perform like he use to. When it first happened, he started working at a “paint and sip” place in town, leading drunk ladies in group painting. After a while, I started working there too. It was a weird job, but I liked that it made art accessible to people who didn’t identify as artists. I wish there was more of that inclusion in music, and I think RSD goes a long way toward bringing music back to the people. I try to teach that to my kid, too — it’s not about being good at something, but how it makes you feel while you’re doing it — hence using her rich, ballsy paintings for the artwork.
A lot of the songs were recorded right after they were written, and I like that roughness. “Turn Back to Love”” was written after the Nazi rally here in Charlottesville, when staying home and facing that extreme ugliness felt very important. “In Front of Your Loved Ones” was recorded in Whitehorse, Yukon, while I was in the early chapters of a pregnancy that didn’t work out. “Feather Over”” was from a BBC session that had a crazy-satisfying instrumentation of me, guitar, a male voice, and a bari clarinet. I had an app that would jokingly, almost creepily, tell me what size my in-utero baby was compared to certain vegetables. That stuff made it into “Heavy Love.” And “Wings on a Wallflower” again cycles back to that middle-of-the-night panic brain, and the experience of living with and raising people who tend toward introversion.

|Doctors Of Madness||Dark Times||Molecular Scream||LP||Limited edition of 1000 copies on clear vinyl.RIYL: Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen, Iggy Pop, Radiohead & Tom Waits.”If you have never heard the Doctors of Madness, you should.Musically they are the Velvet Underground, New York Dolls with shades of glam, hippie, prog and punk all rolled into one, yet are still totally original.Vastly underrated, they should have been huge.Pure genius” Vic Reeves….The DOM are “the missing link between David Bowie & The Sex Pistols” (The Guardian May 2017).Exploding onto the music scene in 1975 with their theatrical, William Burroughs-inspired Sci-fi nightmare, they were misunderstood by many, but those who knew understood the importance of the band’s dangerous, uncompromising approach to lyrics, to music and to performance.Among the many fans of the band were acts as diverse as The Damned, Vic Reeves, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Spiritualized, Julian Cope, The Adverts, The Skids and Simple Minds.The Sex Pistols supported them, so did The Jam & Joy Division.They were the first to combine the avant-garde approach of The Velvet Underground with a distinctly European aesthetic.The blue hair, exotic stage-names, the lyrical themes of urban decay, political propaganda, mind control and madness were all taken up by the punk bands who followed in their wake.The DOM were trailblazers, pioneers, adventurers…pushing the boundaries of rock music and theatre to see how far it would go before it bust.What happened after them was due, in no small part, to what they achieved in 3 short years.They may not have been Jesus Christ, but they were, arguably, John the Baptist!!! Now, 40 years after they imploded, they are back…with an album seething with lyrical anger and passion.It is the most potent and incisive musical dissection of modern life and contemporary politics released the decade.With tracks titles like “So Many ways To Hurt You”, “Sour Hour”, “Make It Stop!” and the ground-breaking sonic assault of the title track “Dark Times”, Richard “Kid” Strange proves once again that he has his finger firmly on the pulse of our times, just as he had when he founded the band in 1974.Produced by John Leckie (Radiohead, Stone Roses, Pink Floyd), the new album, Dark Times, features contributions from Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Sarah Jane Morris (Communards), Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave etc), Steve ‘Boltz’ Bolton (The Who, Scott Walker) and the young protest singer Lily Bud, alongside the current thrilling and thunderous DOM rhythm section of Susumu Ukei (bass guitar) & Mackii Ukei (drums) of the Japanese extreme glam-metal band Sister Paul, and Dylan O Bates (violin and keyboards).Julian Cope, another rock star who, like Strange, found the confines of music too tight for his ambition, his energy and his imagination, was blown away when he first heard the songs, declaring, “These Dark Times are enormously informing: the RULES OF THE FUTURE are indeed being forged right now”.Top producer Martyn Ware (Human League/Heaven 17) said the album “…reminds me of Iggy Pop’s Kill City album – love it.” and Biba Kopf (The Wire) declared, “Still listening to new DOM album with immense interest and pleasure”.The first single, Make It Stop!, is an impassioned howl against the global drift to right wing extremism and persecution of minorities, and is already a live showstopper for the band.It features the thrilling cross-generational combination of Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Lily Bud on backing vocals.In the period since the last DOM gig in 1978, Richard has written a memoir, collaborated on a cantata with internationally celebrated composer Gavin Bryars, worked as an actor on films with Tim Burton, Martin Scorsese, Harmony Korine & Jack Nicholson, toured the world in a Russian version of Hamlet with James Nesbitt as his grave-digging co-star, played Glastonbury, sung baritone in the British premiere of Frank Zappa’s200 Motels at the Royal Festival Hall, directed a multi-media evening celebrating the life and work of William Burroughs, won Best Art Film Prize at the Portobello Film Festival last year, had his own live talk show, worked with Tom Waits and Marianne Faithfull on the William Burroughs/Robert Wilson stage play The Black Rider, curated events for the Tate Gallery, and sung Walt Disney songs with Jarvis Cocker.1/ So Many Ways To Hurt You 2/ Make It Stop! 3/ Sour Hour 4/ Walk Of Shame 5/ This Kind Of Failure 6/ This Is How To Die 7/ Blood Brother 8/ Dark Times||Rock||Punk||500||1000||Cargo|

|Drew Mulholland||OST: Ness||Castles In Space||LP||Unreleased: RSD EXCLUSIVE. Text Taken From The Liner Notes by Rob MacFarlane: Drew Mulholland knows how to listen to a place.How to lay ears to a landscape and catch the voices
and utterances that surface into the skull.But fidelity is not his aim here ––and nor should it be with
such a deceiving, treacherous site as The Ness.The tracks you hear are––in their distortions and
manipulations––truer to The Ness’s unsettlements and resonances than any others I know.
They hover somewhere between field-recording and haunting.Acoustic elements have been worked over
until they are scarcely recognisable, surviving scantly as hyper-mutated catalysts.
Mulholland even used the place itself as the distortive force; he gathered lichen species found on
The Ness, ground them nearly into dust, glued the resulting powder onto a length of cassette tape,
played and recorded the lichened tape, then stretched the recording to ten times its original length
– before splicing it and adding reverb and echo.The resulting tracks are fabulously unfaithful to
their origins on the untrue island.
They bleep, shiver, rattle, quiver, shudder, detonate.
There are footsteps, drips, the clatters of doors and minds being closed, as well as the warping
cries of the Mellotron.Interference of several kinds crackles throughout.
Throughout, this remarkable soundscape echoes in its unsettling patterns the ‘environmental
testing’ of nuclear weapons (stress testing, vibration testing, temperature testing that occurred on
The Ness under the veil of the Official Secrets Act:
“For Ness is a place to improvise.Ness is its own realm with its own rules.
Don’t look.Don’t tell.Don’t understand.Don’t ever remember.”
|Durutti Column||Vini Reilly + Womad Live||Factory Benelux||2XLP + 7″||Factory Benelux presents an expanded double vinyl edition of Vini Reilly, the acclaimed seventh studio album by Manchester ensemble The Durutti Column. Originally released by Factory Records in 1989, just 1000 copies have been pressed in black vinyl (with bonus seven inch in CLEAR vinyl ) for Record Store Day on 18 April 2020.
Produced by Vini Reilly and Stephen Street (The Smiths, Morrissey, Blur), the original working title of the Vini Reilly album was The Durutti Column Sampler.The sleeve itself samples Bob Dylan circa Highway 61 Revisited, showcasing an iconic portrait by Mark Warner.Indeed much about the album flirts with mainstream culture, being a deliberate attempt to position Reilly as a ‘pop’ artist following his chart-topping collaboration with Morrissey on Viva Hate.This collaboration is further explored on the bonus 7″ single, which features rare outtake I Know Very Well How I Got My Note Wrong and exquisite homage For Steven Patrick.
Bonus tracks on this 2020 double-disc remaster include several never before issued on vinyl, including William B and Red Square from the extended CD version of Vini Reilly, plus all four tracks from pristine performance CD WOMAD Live.Recorded at the WOMAD Festival in Cornwall in August 1988, the core Durutti duo of Vini Reilly and Bruce Mitchell are here augmented by Andy Connell on keys and Chinese opera singer Liu Sola.

|Ed Askew ft Trembling Bells||London||Tin Angel Records||12″ Black Vinyl||“Alex Neilson (Alex Rex) booked a summer tour with two psych folk legends — national treasure Mike Heron of the towering Incredible String Band and then the artist who wrote the songs on this EP, painter and gay songwriter Ed Askew.
Still known for his 1968 masterpiece “”Ask the Unicorn”” (remastered / reissued by Tin Angel in 2015), Askew has been crafting a sort of art crooner pop for decades — vivid imagistic lyrics supported by wild melodies and his increasingly warm voice.Askew’s two most recent studio albums are also on Tin Angel and feature Sharon van Etten, Marc Ribot and Mary Lattimore.
“”The songs are intensely personal…but also somehow universal in their humble portrayal of the human condition.”” – Ben Graham, The Quietus
The tour was with Neilson own psych folk darlings, Trembling Bells.The groups soon began to mingle.By the end, everybody sang back up on the Sikh dharma quoted in Heron’s ‘A Very Cellular Song.’ And early on Ed Askew’s set included Neilson on drums and Mike Hastings of the Bells on guitar in addition Askew’s keyboardist Jay Pluck.
Prior to what would be an iconic show at Cafe Oto in London, this group went to Flesh and Bone Studio in Hackney to record a session live to track with Owen Pratt.They were joined by friend and collaborator, violinist Jordan Hunt (The Irrespressibles, Theo Adams Company).
The title track from his 1968 masterpiece is there; and also ‘Little Eyes’ which is a title track as well from the “”sister album”” to Ask the Unicorn which was recorded the same year but remained unreleased until 2007 (DeStijl).
‘Coast to Coast’ and ‘Little Clouds’ are brand new songs — “”All the times I’ve tried / to love some guy / to love some guy.””
‘Starlight in Brooklyn’ was written the night Askew got home from his very first tour in 2012.And ‘Roadio Rose’ remains Askew’s most played and one of his most amazing songs.””Askew also has a painter’s talent for imagery and symbolism; the black rider breaking silver chains amid the tumbling piano chords on ‘Roadio Rose.'”” — Ben Graham, The Quietus

Sitwell was like the Wahol of her day, publishing a mountain of essays and poems covering every aspect of the arts…
Sitwell fan Morrissey, heavily featured Edith as his tour mascot on his Kill Uncle tour and used her image as his stage backdrop and on his T-shirts…
and like Morrissey, Sitwell also had a knack of putting her foot in it, pontificating at one of her world famous Bayswater Tea parties, I have been bought up on Rhythm as other children were bought up on Glaxo! And another, when a coachload of noisy children were arriving, “it almost makes one wish for another King Herod!”

|Esplendor Geometrico||Necrosis En La Poya||Geometrik||7″||One of the essential works of early Esplendor Geométrico.A pioneering and very influential piece of rhythmic-noisy industrial music originally pressed in tiny numbers.After years unavailable, and previously officially reissued as part of the Esplendor Geométrico´s box only, here it is the legit reissue of one the most sought-after Spanish 7″ records, remastered from the original tapes, in its original artwork.
Exclusive RSD 2020 release.
DESCRIPTION : A cult band and pioneers of industrial music, Esplendor Geométrico were one of the first cases of true independence in the history of Spanish music.Not only financial and organizational, but also creative independence.
This first single, “Necrosis en la poya” (1981), was self-produced and distributed by the band themselves, before the appearance of the Spanish independent record labels in the early 80s.After receiving the needed funds from an enigmatic fan who decided to help out the release, a tiny run of 500 copies was pressed and quickly flew off the shelves.The iconic yet disturbing cover artwork surely shocked the regular clients at the few Madrid shops that were willing to stock the release but thankfully also managed to catch the attention of the emerging European scene of DIY experimental sounds and most of the copies found their way into the network of independent distributors.Without a doubt this is one of the fundamental works by Esplendor Geométrico, where they started to develop their unique style of industrial music which would be such a great influence on other artists afterwards.’Necrosis en la poya’ is regarded by their fans as one of the best records ever made by the band and shows EG’s shift towards harsher industrial rhythms.
After years unavailable, and previously officially reissued as part of the Esplendor Geométrico´s box only, here it is the legit reissue of one the most sought-after Spanish records, remastered from the original tapes

|Field Music||Measure||Memphis Industries||Double LP colour||FIELD MUSIC
RECORD STORE DAY TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY REISSUEBack on vinyl for the first time since its original pressing in 2010, Field Music’s Measure is released on 180g Red and Yellow vinyl.Limited to 500 copies.A landmark in Field Music’s long and varied history, it marked their return from a self-imposed hiatus with a gloriously rich LP that entwined the brother’s love of the rock music cannon with a rediscovery of some of pop’s overlooked adventurers.Themes disappear and reappear.Some songs flow together, others intrude on each other.There are contradictions and ripostes.There appears to be a great deal of defiance and a fair amount of resignation.Can it make sense? Does it matter if there is no sense? What strands can hold together the dissonant funk of ‘Let’s Write A Book’ (a call to arms for the perpetually apologetic), the mutated blues of ‘Each Time Is A New Time’ (a riposte to misplaced faith in repetition), the chopping and splashing pop driven through ‘Them That Do Nothing’ (perhaps about a valiant willingness to make mistakes), the multilayered riffery of ‘The Rest Is Noise’ or the epic found-sound song cycle that starts with ‘See You Later’?Perhaps, then, the central strand of this sprawling Tusk meets The English Settlement epic is simply that this is the album when the Brewis brothers truly became Field Music.Even on a record as varied as this their sound and approach can still be identified as their own.As David said at the time: “In the past we might not have had faith that it was sufficient just to be us.But now I think we do.”

|Fred Neil||38 MacDougal||Delmore||LP||– RSD 2020 Limited Edition of 1000 copies on Green “Rocky Road” colored vinyl
– Deluxe Stoughton tip-on jacket,
Mastertone Studios, NYC,1965…Amidst mounting friction with producer Paul Rothchild, Fred Neil walks out of the unfinished sessions for what was to be his debut album, “Bleecker & MacDougal”.Fearing Fred wouldn’t return to the studio, his friend and guitar player, Peter Childs, invited him over to his apartment at 38 MacDougal.According to Childs, “the best chance to get him back wouldn’t be to try to persuade him verbally, but to get him over to the apartment for a bit of music-making”.Luckily for us, Fred accepted the invitation.What ensued was an afternoon of pure Fred Neil, playing and singing the way he always preferred, not on stage or in a recording studio, but in an informal setting amongst friends, captured on Ampex reel to reel, and stored for over fifty years!
The apartment recordings at 38 MacDougal were beautifully detailed in Peter Lee Neff’s 2018 Fred Neil biography, “That’s The Bag I’m In”.Fred and Peter play songs that would later wind up on Bleecker & MacDougal (“Travellin’ Shoes”, “Country Boy”, “Gone Again”, “Candy Man”, “Little Bit Of Rain”), a definitive “Sweet Cocaine”, and two PD songs that don’t appear on any other Fred Neil album; the traditional folk song, “Once I Had A Sweetheart”, and the African-American spiritual, “Blind Man Standing By The Road And Crying”.The latter is our personal favorite, and despite the biography mentioning the song cutting off before it ends, Delmore’s tape magically

Limited edition of 2000 black vinyl copies.For the first time ever on vinyl, a special limited edition of Galaxie 500’s only live recording, Copenhagen.An official Record Store Day release, co-sponsored by Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales, who are releasing a limited edition Danish-style beer to enjoy alongside, and staging a RSD 2020 live tribute to Galaxie 500 at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade Records featuring Magnetic Fields, Xiu Xiu, Surfer Blood and others.Galaxie 500’s last show of their last European tour was captured to 24-track tape by Danish National Radio on December 1, 1990, and first released (on CD only) by Rykodisc in 1997, following the success of their 1996 box set reissue of all Galaxie 500’s studio albums.Copenhagen “is a bullet to the head of those who maintain that the band was best heard on record,” as critic/sage Byron Coley has written.”It is abundantly clear, as the trio spirals through an inspired set of covers and originals, that the introverted disengagement of their early live work has been replaced by a unique, powerful and controlled presence that allows them to deliver the goods emotionally as well as sonically.The blend of heart and hand is stunning.”Mark Richardson wrote in Pitchfork: “The live album, Copenhagen, which is heavy on songs from This Is Our Music and in almost every case improves upon them, turns out to be the ideal closing chapter.During the 1990 show in Denmark, Galaxie 500 play magnificently to what sounds like a pretty small crowd.But that small crowd is into it.Sometimes bands work like that.They never made it big, but during their short run, Galaxie 500’s often quiet and always beautifully rendered music had a profound impact on a few people, including this writer.It needs to stay out there, where it has a chance of finding a few more.”

|Gemma Ray||Lights Out Zoltar! (redux)||Bronzerat||12″||Available on limited edition pink vinyl, with extra previously unreleased tracks included on the download card, this Record Store Day exclusive is a repackaging of a long out-of-print vinyl version of Gemma Ray’s sophomore solo album “Lights Out Zoltar!”, on its 10th anniversary.
Recorded and produced at home in London with Michael J Sheehy (Dream City Film Club, Miraculous Mule), it showcased Gemma as an original and ambitious writer and producer, an independent with a wondrous box of tricks up her sleeve.As such it received rave reviews from the international press (below),
whilst “100 mph (in 2nd Gear)” was Single of the Week on BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe show.
“By rights she should be a household name.This album is a rare treat indeed” – John Doran (BBC/QUIETUS)
“Had Phil Spector forced his girl groups in a more noir-soundtrack
direction, this might’ve been the result.Ray has a truly impressive feel
for vintage pop flourishes, layered to lavish effect.And all those
details are what you’re supposed to be paying attention to, right up
until the blade hits your back.” SPIN
“Three months after I first got the album I’m still marveling at the way
Ray has synthesized a whole slew of retro references into a cinematic
psychedelic sound.Ray’s sound is like one of those Willy Wonka
Gobstoppers: it’s massive and composed of layer upon layer of aural
tastes and colours” – VANITY FAIR
“An eerie aural kaleidoscope that conjures up thoughts of what an
album by Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las produced by David Lynch
would have sounded like.Though it echoes with references to

|Gene Russell||New Direction||Real Gone Music||LP||The first album released from the most sought-after label, bar none, among jazz collectors! Black Jazz was started by keyboardist/producer Gene Russell for Dick Schory’s Ovation Records.Active from only 1971 to 1975, and reputed to be the first jazz label started by an African-American since Sunshine Records in 1921, Black Jazz sought to expand minds as well as hearts, releasing spiritual, socially conscious music that explored such burgeoning genres of the era as funk, soul jazz, and free jazz.Real Gone Music kicks off its Black Jazz reissue campaign with the very first record the label released, which was entitled, fittingly, New Directions by label founder Russell.Oft-bootlegged, with original copies commanding princely sums, New Directions set the tone for the entire label with its modal and soul jazz explorations.Real Gone’s reissue includes new liner notes by Pat Thomas, the author of Listen Whitey!

The track featured in the cult documentary ‘A Short Film About Chilling’, and has been included on dozens of compilations since release, including Paul Oakenfold’s seminal Goa mix.
Fast forward to now.DJ Paul Woolford, a long-time fan of the track, steps into the studio and produces a 13 minute epic re-rub under his Special Request moniker, a widescreen soundscape for the dancefloor and the mind.”I had one of the best sessions in the studio ever”, he commented.The track is now set for release on deluxe 12″ clear vinyl via new label Chemical Alley, exclusively for Record Store Day 2020.
The Grid went on to tour the globe, and had a run of 10 UK chart singles, including the million selling ‘Swamp Thing’.They are currently in the studio working on brand new material, as well as a retrospective ‘Best Of’ album, including all their single releases, key remixes and deeper cuts.

Early in 2016 Ali Chant texted me, asking if I still wanted to record some stuff at his studio – as property developers were about to knock it down.Another creative space bulldozed away for capital gain.Politically it was a shit year.The noise building for the Brexit referendum that would fuck with the future of the young was in full swing.Bowie died, and on the morning of the first recordings I had the worst migraine.I left the building and threw up in the street.I wanted to commit to the lyrics and sing live so I think I was stressed about getting them ready to sing.
I had a batch of songs I wanted to record but I didn’t have a record label or any plans of what to do with them.
I called the album that was mixed by Samur Kouja; Babelsberg – and I’m very happy with it.
This album meanwhile is an exploration of how it came to be – and the songs in their raw state.A companion piece rather than the definitive article.
At some point it would be great to release the amazing orchestral elements too.Maybe both records could be played at once.In the meantime please enjoy the fruits of Kliph Scurlock’s mixes and demo digging for (Don’t) Welcome The Plague As A Blessing.
I’m very grateful to Lisa Jen and Mirain Haf from the band 9 Bach for singing the background vocals.Kliph for overseeing this project, Rough Trade for their enthusiasm and thanks to the designers; thanks Uno Moralez for agreeing to have his incredible Babelsberg sleeve illustration carved up, and ace designer Mark James for this final article. Further thanks to Ali, Steve, Osian and also to Robin Turner for lending his ear at the time.

|Guided by Voices||Vampire on Titus||Scat Records||LP||500 OPAQUE YELLOW/GOLD VINYL RECUT / REPRESS: We are pleased to announce a new vinyl pressing of the classic Guided By Voices album, Vampire on Titus.Although there were several different pressings in the 1990s, this is the first since 1998.This edition features a new master cut at Golden, is packaged in a sturdy tip-on jacket, and includes Bob’s original insert, now enlarged to a more readable size.
Originally released in 1993, Vampire was not unique at that time in its 4 track recording methodology, but it was perhaps the first to garner major media attention.Many minds were blown, and a few were baffled enough to return the album to the store, believing the crude sound meant their copy was defective.
Vampire occupies a unique place in the GBV discography.The album is a snapshot of a brief time in the band’s history, a turning point after having broken up the previous year.It does not include any older or last minute material.Although sonically consistent, the songs exhibit tremendous variety, skirting several genres and many moods.The lineup is just a trio: Robert Pollard and brother Jimmy with Tobin Sprout.Although it could be described as one of GBV’s “difficult” LPs, it has several songs that could’ve been standouts on Bee Thousand or Alien Lanes.It was their first album that was not self-released.It is an innocent album, unaware of its audience, and fearless to the core as only true outsiders can be.As such, Vampire on Titus is an essential piece for even the more casual fan of the band.It’s also just a damn good album that’s held up to repeated listens for a quarter century.

|Humble Pie||Official Bootleg Collection Vol 2||HNE||2LP||Black 180g Vinyl, Gatefold Sleeve Following last year’s Humble Pie’s “Official Bootleg Collection Volume 1” double LP comes the “Official Bootleg Collection Volume 2”, collating rare and previously (officially) unreleased live shows that were illicitly recorded between 1971 and 1981.
Originally emerging from the remnants The Small Faces, Humble Pie formed in 1969 when guitarist and vocalist Steve Marriott joined forces with Peter Frampton, drummer Jerry Shirley and bassist Greg Ridley, and began their assent to conquering the theatres and then arenas of North America, culminating in 1972’s double live “Performance: Rockin’ The Filmore”.Frampton left in 1971 for a highly successful solo career, replaced by Colosseum’s Clem Clempson, and it was this line-up that was captured in New York in 1971 at one of Clem’s first shows with the Pie.The extemporisations of “Performance: Rockin’ The Filmore” became the basis for much of Humble Pie’s live repertoire for the remainder of the 1970s, but this 1971 New York show does include their unique take of Eddie Cochran’s ‘C’mon Everybody’ and ‘I Wonder’ from the soon to be released “Smokin'” LP.
Side Two find The Pie backed up by the soulful backing vocals of The Blackberries; Venetta Fields, Clydie King & Billie Barnum, who appear on ‘Oh La-De-Da’, ‘I Don’t Need No Doctor’ and ’30 Days In The Hole’
Humble Pie split in 1975 following their Street Rats LP, but not before Side Three’s Philadelphia show on March 15, 1975, featuring ‘Four Day Creep’ and ‘I Don’t Need No Doctor’.
The Pie would eventually reform for 1980’s “On To Victory” comeback record, this time with a line-up featuring Bobby Tench from the Jeff Beck Group on guitar and vocals and bassist Anthony “Sooty” Jones.Side Four from Privates Club, N.Y.C.on March 25, 1981 features the epic 23 minute take of ’30 Days in the Hole’ / ‘I Walk on Gilded Splinters’.
Housed in a gatefold sleeve, as well as plenty of rare memorabilia, the booklet features an essay from based on new interviews with Pie drummer, Jerry Shirley.

|Ian Prowse||The People Not The Crown EP||Kitchen Disco Records||10″||What was ‘Oliver’s Army’? Who are the ‘Sandinista’s’? What is ‘Going Underground’?
13 year old Ian Prowse couldn’t have had a better education than the one encoded in the music of his era.It was the greatest explosion of conviction music the UK had ever seen.
Fast-forward to 2020, Britain and the world, more than ever, needs music to remind us that democracy doesn’t start and stop at a vote.That debate, awareness and freedom of thought is needed to make sure our political leaders are held accountable.Music can remind us our assorted histories doesn’t always have to define a future injustice.
The People Not The Crown is a 4-track, 10″ EP of protest.Taking two songs from his days leading Pele (cult 90s band) ‘Raid The Palace’ and ‘The Sport Of Kings’, one song from the acclaimed Here I Lie album ‘All The Royal Houses’ and a brand new track called ‘You Don’t Own Me’ A song specially written and exclusively for Record Store Day.

|Ivan Conti||Poison Fruit (Special edition)||Far Out Recordings||LP + 7″ (Grey “splattered” Vinyl- both coloured)||A special ‘poisoned vinyl’ edition of Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti’s critically acclaimed Poison Fruit album, which includes a limited edition 7″ with an unreleased track from the original sessions ‘Katmandu’, and on the flip, a track never before on vinyl, ‘Ninho’.
For Record Store Day 2020, Far Out Recordings presents a special ‘poisoned vinyl’ edition of Ivan ‘Mamão’ Conti’s critically acclaimed Poison Fruit album.The 180g splattered colour LP is accompanied by an exclusive bonus 7″ with a previously unreleased track from the original Poison Fruit sessions ‘Katmandu, and ‘Ninho’, a track never before released on vinyl.
From an artist in their seventies, you probably wouldn’t expect to hear an album like this.But Brazilian drumming legend Ivan ‘Mamão’ Conti has been experimenting and innovating for the last half a century.As one third of cult Rio jazz-funk trio Azymuth, Mamão was at the root of the group’s ‘samba doido’ (crazy samba) philosophy, which warped the traditional samba compass with jazz influences and space age electronics.Even with his lesser known jovem guarda group The Youngsters, Mamão was experimenting with tapes and delays to create unique, ahead-of-its-time sounds, way back in the sixties.More recently Mamão recorded an album with hip-hop royalty Madlib under the shared moniker ‘Jackson Conti’.
With his first album in over twenty years, and the first to be released on vinyl since his 1984 classic The Human Factor, Mamão shares his zany carioca character across eleven tracks of rootsy electronic samba and tripped out jazz, beats and dance music.Featuring Alex Malheiros and Kiko Continentino on a number of tracks, the Azymuth lifeblood runs deep, but venturing into the modern discotheque (as Mamão would call it), Poison Fruit also experiments with sounds more commonly associated with house and techno, with the help of London based producer Daniel Maunick (aka Dokta Venom) and Mamão’s son Thiago Maranhão.

|Johnny Thunders & Wayne Kramer||Gang War||Jungle/Skydog||2xLP||The New York Dolls & MC5 guitarists collaboration! First time on vinyl; a limited edition in dark red & dark yellow coloured vinyl, on 2xLP with five bonus ‘Live at Max’s’ tracks only previously available on bootleg.JOHNNY THUNDERS & WAYNE KRAMER’S ‘GANG WAR’ In 1979, JOHNNY THUNDERS, renowned Heartbreakers and New York Dolls guitarist, teamed up with WAYNE KRAMER, also legendary guitarist of Detroit’s seminal MC5, to form ‘GANG WAR’, an alliance that lasted the best part of a year.Although Gang War released no records and without a label – at the time they were an underground act; in retrospect the collaboration is looked on as a ‘rock fantasy’ supergroup.These live recordings bear testimony to this unique partnership between two celebrated rock guitar icons.Gang War came about shortly after Johnny released his ‘So Alone’ album, and Wayne was not long out of jail after serving two years of a sentence of four for a coke bust.Arriving in Detroit with the Heartbreakers, Johnny met his teenage idol Wayne who jammed with them at the gig.Johnny stayed on, moving his family to Michigan and pledging his future to Gang War.They toured regularly and recorded a couple of demos with a view to getting a deal, but although there was great interest, after eight or nine months they split.On these recordings, both contribute lead vocals and guitars on Thunders and Dolls tracks such as London Boys, Endless Party and M.I.A.; songs familiar from Kramer and MC5 such as Ramblin’ Rose and Hey Thanks, and fascinating cover versions such as These Boots Are Made For Walking and The Harder They Come.Together with the between-track repartee they also demonstrate the difference between the two – as Wayne Kramer has said: “Music is important to me and I value the honor, the opportunity, to be an important musician.Johnny, on the other hand didn’t consider himself a musician.He considered himself an entertainer.”||Rock||Punk||500||1500||SRD|

|Kevin Morby||Oh Mon Dieu: Live à Paris||Dead Oceans||2xLP||Live recordings on opaque red vinyl.From Kevin:
Paris was the first city to really get behind my career as a solo artist.From the first time I played there in 2014 til now, it’s always had an extra spark of magic to it.It’s always the stop I look forward to the most on my European tours as the audience comes with a very unique and kinetic energy, and because of this, so does the band.I had wanted to document this reciprocating fever between us and the crowd for some time now and saw our sold out show at the beautiful Cabaret Sauvage as the perfect time to do so.I also knew I needed to document a night with my new band, the OH MY GOD Band, which is made up of some of the most talented and tasteful musicians on the planet.And so here and now, in this recording, I have captured the best band I’ve ever played with as well as one of the best crowds I’ve ever played for – all together on a very sweaty night beneath a carnival tent in Paris.xo km

|Kip Moore||Slowheart / Underground||Snakefarm Records||1×12″ & 1×10″||This double disc re-issue sees Moore’s 2017 album, ‘Slowheart’, pressed onto 12″ UK vinyl for the first time, coupled together with his ‘Underground’ EP, included here on 10″ vinyl.
Available digitally from October 2016, ‘Underground’ – two new studio tracks, three live recordings – was a toast to a fan-base hungry for more music…
“Everywhere we go, the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they’ve been hearing for the last few years,” said Kip at the time.”I simply made this EP for the true fans.”
Since his ‘Up All Night’ debut in 2012, the Georgia native has built a special relationship with his following, engaging on a one-to-one level.Perhaps because of his own story, with its share of cold-water apartments in tough neighbourhoods, plus relationships lost in pursuit of the song-writing dream (‘Slowheart’ closer, ‘Guitar Man’, paints the picture memorably), he’s always kept his feet tight to the turf, and it’s an approach that makes the live performances consistently special – as much celebration as rock show.
In 2018 / 2019, his decision to add some new flavours with an extended run of acoustic dates, both in North America and Europe, further emphasised the strength of this bond, with the shows often running into over-time and focussing on deep cuts as well as hits.Essentially, ‘Underground’ was born from the same desire – to give the fans exactly what they want!
And now, this special Record Store Day Double-Pack permits the ‘Underground’ tracks a physical platform for the very first time anywhere – nicely complementing ‘Slowheart’ compositions such as ‘Plead The Fifth’, ‘More Girls Like You’, ‘The Bull’, ‘Last Shot’ and more…

|Knight Area||D-Day||Butler||LPX2||2LP in Gatefold sleeve.Black and white mixed vinyl.Limited to 500 copies.
After their 6th album Knight Area felt a very strong urge to create an album with a deeper message within.The first single, ‘Blood On The Risers’ for example is dedicated to the American paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions, who made nightly parachute drops early on D-Day, June 6.In that respect is the whole a tribute to the fallen ones who fought for the freedom of Europe.The music blends orchestra and guitars perfectly together to create heavy symphonic rock that could easily be a soundtrack.Knight Area is an established musical entity in the world of symphonic and
(neo-)progressive rock.They toured all over the world and recorded and mixed this new album with Joost van den Broek (Epica, Ayreon).The album features Robby Valentine on grand piano and is also an introduction to new singer Jan Willem Ketelaers (Ayreon).”To pass on the memory, to remind that today we live in peace, freedom and dignity because others gave their life for us.” -Knight Area

|Laneous||Elsewhere / Flawless||Soul Has No Tempo||7 inch||To celebrate Record Store Day 2020, Soul Has No Tempo are pleased to announce the forthcoming release from local lame boy, Laneous.Elsewhere/Flawless will arrive in all it’s 7″ vinyl glory, the double A side marking a temporary detour from the exotica/soul excellence of 2019’s Monstera Deliciosa (Album of The Year Nominee – 2020 Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards).
Elsewhere/Flawless are two on-the-fly ideas, born in the brain of Laneous and brought to life in the studio with Melbourne’s engineer-extraordinaire, Nick Herrera (Hiatus Kaiyote, 30/70, Nai Palm).Co-producing the track with Laneous, they took a similar approach to that of their Sunny Side Up (Brownswood Recordings) contribution, Nice To See You. A process Laneous is fond of, he brought renowned Australian drummer Alon Ilsar in to lay down the backbone of the tracks, with intention to build on that and see where their two studio days took them.A process not for the faint hearted, Herrera often took the lead, drawing the ideas out of Laneous and capturing the magic that ensued.
The two tracks are as different as they are similar, both a collision of inspiration and improvisation – a space where Laneous truly shines.Writing, producing and playing all instruments bar drums, Elsewhere takes it back to the simplicity and excellence of an easy listening pop track that moonlights as a groove-heavy, soul/fusion jam. Flawless, a club banger in its purest form, steps the energy up a notch, driven by a pounding 808 kick with hints of Neptunes era Kelis and Amp Fiddler-esque influence, bubbling beneath the surface.His ability to switch between genres and styles so fluidly and naturally is on full display here, providing a shiny glimpse into the brain of one of Australia’s most versatile musicians.
Although a highly respected and influential artist and musician in his community – with a career spanning over 10+ years leading cult bands Laneous & The Family Yah, Kafka, Kooii & Vulture St Tape Gang - 2019 marked a change of pace for Laneous with the release of his highly anticipated record Monstera Deliciosa, produced by Paul Bender of Hiatus Kaiyote.The album caught the attention of radio hosts and DJ’s across the globe and at home, leading to a Victorian Music Award nomination for Soul Album Of The Year and more recently, nominated for Album of The Year at Gilles Peterson’s 2020 Worldwide Awards.With a 2020 UK/EU summer tour on the horizon, along with a second album in the works, it’s hard not to feel as though Laneous is just warming up.

|Loleatta Holloway||Cry To Me||Tidal Waves Music||LP||Loleatta Holloway (born in Chicago,1946) was an American R&B-Disco singer known for her massive hit songs such as “Hit and Run”, “Love Sensation” and “Relight My Fire”, all of which have been sampled extensively worldwide.Billboard magazine ranked her as one of most successful dance artists of all-time.
Holloway first began her career singing gospel music, then in the early 70s, she met her future producer, manager (and husband) Floyd Smith which kick-started her impressive recording career.Shortly after Holloway signed with the Atlanta-based soul music label ‘Aware’ where she recorded two albums: Loleatta (1973) and Cry to Me (1975).
Later, in the mid 70s she signed with top Philadelphia arranger and producer Norman Harris’ Gold Mind/Salsoul Records, where she recorded many more top charting hit singles and launched her career as a disco act.From then on (and until this day) Holloway’s songs (which became DJ favorites) were heavily remixed and sampled on a multitude of tracks from renowned acts such as Whitney Houston, Bobby Byrd, Raekwon, Flo Rida, Pitbull, Ice Cube…and MANY others.
Loleatta Holloway passed away at the age of 64 on March 21, 2011 leading to a wave of tributes and condolences from across the globe (Holloway also had a huge following in Europe and Japan).
Her second album (Cry to Me from 1975), which we are presenting you today, is a total classic…both the album (and the title track) peaked in the R&B and Billboard Hot Soul Singles charts.Cry To Me was produced by Floyd Smith and it features tracks penned by some of the most talented songwriters of the time…Sam Dees (Gladys Knight, Bo Diddley, Aretha Franklin) wrote five of the tracks on the album and his arrangements provide the perfect backdrop for Loleatta’s emotive, dramatic and powerful vocals.Curtis Mayfield also contributes the magnificent ‘Just Be True’ track and Jo Armstead (Ray Charles, Syl Johnson, Tina Turner) wrote the beautiful ‘Casanova’ song.
This record is a soul masterpiece extraordinaire…fantastic piano plays accompanied by chiming guitars, swirling strings, a powerful rhythm section and gospel tinged backing vocals.Loleatta’s vocals are devastatingly sad, as she sings about her relationship breaking up and the pain and sadness it’s caused her.She just sings her heart out… it’s almost impossible to listen to the album without getting caught up in the emotion.Loleatta roars defiantly, using all of her strength to deliver this classic slice of Southern Soul music.
Originally released in 1975, Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the first official reissue of Loleatta’s classic Cry to Me album.Remastered from the original master tapes by Ginn Music Group-Aware Records and if features the original album cover designed by Ruby Mazur (Pharoah Sanders, Sun Ra, John Lee Hooker).This reissue comes as a deluxe 180g vinyl edition (strictly limited to 1000 copies) with obi strip…released exclusively for Record Store Day 2020 and available in participating stores on April 18.

“…here they [Reed & Cale] paint a portrait of Warhol that has far more depth and poignancy than his public image would have led one to expect.It’s a moving and deeply felt tribute to a misunderstood man, and it’s a pleasure to hear these two comrades-in-arms working together again, even if their renewed collaboration was destined to be short-lived.” All Music Review.

|Lovely Eggs, The||I Am Moron (RSD Special Edition)||Egg Records||LP||Another inimitable Lovely Eggs handmade release.This time a picture disc special! 1000 copies only.Designed by Casey Raymond.
Following on from their 2018 RSD release of “This is Eggland” on giant fried egg vinyl which sold out instantly, The Lovely Eggs return with another unique creation for RSD 2020! Cooking up another special release with collaborator Casey Raymond the band will release a very special edition of their new album “I am Moron” on special collectible picture disc.”I am Moron” is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2017 album “This is Eggland”.It is their second album co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and continues their journey through Eggland into the unknown.Throughout their 13 year career, The Lovely Eggs have embraced isolation.Both metaphorically and geographically the married couple have chosen to shun the social conventions of normal life and dedicated their band and their life to the pursuit of what feels right.Operating out of their hometown of Lancaster The Lovely Eggs are lonely pioneers and self confessed kings of idiocy.Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, The Lovely Eggs want none of it.They call out everything fake and plastic about the music industry and demand you to re-evaluate on their terms.They’re undoubtedly the most real band in Britain, operating in a world when true authenticity is hard to find.They have also spent more time on hold to the Working Tax credit hotline than any other band on the planet.”I Am Moron” was self recorded by the band in Lancaster (“The Twin Peaks of Northern England”) between Lancaster Musicians Co-op and their home.During the recording, Lancaster Musicians Co-op was threatened with closure so the band put their album on hold to fight the eviction.
While the band were writing the album they became fascinated by the Mars One program- a global project which aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars.Applicants are offered a one way ticket- never to see earth again.This fascinated Holly and David who drew parallels between this mission and their own isolation as a band.Continuing the heaviness of ” This is Eggland” “I am Moron” brings more depth to their sound bringing with it a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness.Some songs flicker between an earthly realism and the otherworldly loneliness of a one way space mission.While in contrast, Insect Repellent launches a gonzo-style attack against the middle classes and Bearpit questions the essence of working class freedom.With no booking agent, manager, record label or publisher The Lovely Eggs are truly independent.And support for them is snowballing.They are selling out bigger and bigger venues and more eggheads are joining them in their crusade against bullshit.The Lovely Eggs say it how it is.They’ve never been afraid to swim against the current and now they’ve got an army of fans behind them.Don’t miss out on the most collectible record of the year!

masterpiece.Exclusive RSD 2020 release.
DESCRIPTION : Tamba Trio (Helcio Milito, Bebeto Castilho and Luiz Eça) released their first LP in 1962 and quickly became one of the most popular bossa jazz combos out of Brazil.By the mid 60s the band would expand becoming Tamba 4 and Luiz Eça would record his first albums as a leader.
Trained as a classical pianist, Eça’s style was a mix of jazz and pop then blended into bossa resulting in a fresh and unique sound that evolved over the years towards an even more eclectic blend.”La Nueva Onda del Brasil” was recorded in 1970 by Luiz Eça accompanied here by ” La Familia Sagrada”, a large group of top-notch Brazilian musicians including Joyce, Nana Vasdoncelos, Zeca do Trombone, Mauricio Maestro, Claudio Roditi… even Wilson Simonal joins the group on Jorge Ben’s ‘Pais Tropical’.The album was released years later on the tiny Mexican label RVV, run by Rogelio Villareal, also home to the very rare LPs by Primo Quinteto or Rozana in a similar vein.Villareal was the owner of the Camino Real hotels group and the RVV records were exclusively available for sale at the hotels premises, as souvenirs for visitors.The band spent some periods of time touring Mexico, performing at different Camino Real locations.
The album distribution was very limited and never got a local release in their native Brazil (or anywhere else) making this LP a very sought-after record that has reached cult status among Brazilian music collectors Worldwide.”La Nueva Onda del Brasil” includes both standards and originals, all performed in a very free style, an outstanding mix of energetic arrangements and delicate vocal harmonies, a sort of very late and evolved bossa mixed with jazz, emphasizing the rhythmic elements with an afrosamba twist.A samba jazz masterpiece

The Nashville band’s own brand of vintage, soulful Funk with new age flair seeps through the 2 tracks of instrumental bliss in flawless fashion.The music would make the perfect fit in movies like the recently released Dolomite revamp, and the now cult classic Black Dynamite.But it doesn’t fit into a blaxploitation soundtrack style box alone.You could imagine iconic rappers like Ghostface or Black Thought using these soundscapes.The 2 tracks would even fit comfortably next to classic KPM or De Wolfe library releases from the mid 70’s, just as well as current indie trio, Khruangbin.Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee the smoked out instrumentalist trio Magic In Threes are highly influenced by library records, old film soundtracks, and hip hop tapes.They were formed in 2010 as a side project to their work with DeRobert & The Half-Truths.Following a long line of solid and well-received releases on Nashville’s own G.E.D Soul Records – Magic in Threes have now released several 45s and 2 albums on KingUnderground Records, with a new album in the works.

Perhaps you too will be thinking similar things as you listen and reflect upon your own personal journey, especially if this record soundtracked your life all those years gone by….If you are listening to this for the very first time, may I introduce you to…
The Magic Numbers
The Stodart’s & The Gannon’s.
We wanted to create music that was timeless.
We wanted to create a band that you could believe in.
We wanted to break your heart whilst lifting your spirit.
We wanted to make a classic debut album.
In 2004 The Magic Numbers were playing live almost every other night around London, making friends that soon grew into a following that spread the word the old school way, by word of mouth.People telling people about this new group comprising of two sets of brothers and sisters, who were singing a kind of country-soul-pop music with three part harmonies.From the outside things seemed to be happening very quickly, but I’d been writing songs and playing empty venues with our drummer Sean for 10 years before this momentum started building, and for us it really was always just a matter of time…but it sure took it’s sweet time.Honestly though, it was only when our sisters Michele & Angela brought their magic to the band did anyone start taking notice, as then we discovered a sound.There was an energy between us that was somewhat frenetic, it was powerful, we knew we had something special and unique and because of that it also made us very cautious and protective.
Fifteen years ago it felt like we were on top of the world, capable of anything, full of promise, full of innocence but also full of anxiety, still recovering from loss and having nothing.We literally had nothing but each other and this music.So many dreams of ours started coming true, from selling out shows and hearing people sing along to our songs in the crowd, to being given the opportunity to go into the studio by Heavenly.The biggest dream was to make a record.Jeff Barrett & Martin Kelly’s belief in the band and myself as a songwriter at that time really gave us that extra confidence and boost that I think every artist needs whether they’d like to admit it or not.So there we were, about to make this record.
Going into the studio can be a very daunting experience for a band, especially when the only real experience you’ve ever had was some home recording with a 4 track.We chose to work with Craig Silvey because we loved him straight away as a person and felt like he understood what we wanted to achieve.He was amazing at putting us at ease and not having us react
to that red light fever that sometimes creeps up on you.He wanted to stay true to what he’d seen us do live and just try and enhance that sonically as best as he could.
We had a shared vision of not wanting there to be too many overdubs on the record, as the core elements between the four of us when we played live was already telling the story in the way we had arranged the songs.It’s funny now to think that we ended up playing these huge festivals with literally a guitar tuner between us as we didn’t want anything else to colour the sound of our guitars being plugged straight into our amplifiers.
It’s always the songs for me that make a great record and we had the songs.
My sister Michele & I sat at our mum and dad’s and said “Right let’s write a song in D major” and I started pulsing on that opening chord and Michele’s bass line took us on a journey like they always do, that melodic hooky driving thing that she does is key to what makes this music.We had so much fun writing ‘Mornings Eleven’ that I feel the spirit of that moment was captured in the song.We never really said it out loud to each other at the time but we both knew we were trying to write our very own ‘Good Vibrations’ We’d have never thought that it would be the opening song on our debut album.
Some of the songs on this album just appeared fully formed.’This Love’ in particular was written pretty soon after I had learnt of our grandmother’s death in New York, I was heartbroken that I wasn’t there for her in those last days especially as she had raised me as a little boy.I can clearly remember playing that opening triplet guitar figure and the words and melody just came pouring out like they were always there, the same thing with
‘Which Way To Happy’ I remember the feeling of playing catch up to what was coming out.Over the years I’ve learnt that it’s a very rare thing, songs appearing fully formed like that, it still surprises me when they do arrive like a memory of some kind.’Love’s A Game’ felt like it had always existed, in fact for a very long time I would ask people “But does it remind you of anything?” I don’t remember writing ‘Forever Lost’ at all.I remember playing it to the band and us rehearsing it, having fun with the arrangement but no recollection of writing it.
So many songs came from such sad places, the end of a long term relationship, death in the family, feeling so lost and vulnerable, this yearning for something else, to be someone else but I guess unknowingly we disguised it with harmonies and hooks.
‘Love Me Like You’ was definitely one of those, no one spoke of the meaning of the song when I first played it, we all just dived straight in and started having fun with hooks and skips in the rhythm.It was the baby of the bunch, as it was only written a few months before we began recording, whereas ‘Try’ was probably the eldest of almost 2 years.Then there’s the duet between Angie and myself ‘I See You You See Me’.My mum and dad were arguing downstairs and I knew it would only be a matter of time before they would make up and laugh about how ridiculous they were both being.I based the song on that kind of love, one that sees through everything.Angela’s voice on that still melts my heart.
I’d bought a set of these glockenspiel tone bars from a charity shop in Hanwell one afternoon walking home from signing on at the job-centre and all the way back I was thinking about this much more tender arrangement of a song I’d written called ‘Hymn For Her’.The climax of the song on the third chorus was originally how it was all throughout.I
remember that day working on it with Michele and Angela as we were so excited about how it turned out we decided to play it live that night to a small few.
There’s so much love and hope and joy and honesty in this album.So much fun in the arrangements, so much youth and innocence in our voices.It encapsulates a very precious time within the four of our lives.I’m still our biggest fan.
Fifteen years later.
We’re still wanting to create music that is timeless.
We’re still wanting to be a band that you can believe in.
We’re still wanting to break your heart whilst lifting your spirit.
But we can’t ever make that first album again, this is it, we captured that moment in time…..and upon reflection it surpassed all of our wildest expectations.
Hope you enjoy listening.
|Magnetic System||Godzilla/Escape||AMS||7″||– LP Pressed on colored vinyl
– Limited to 400 copiesMagnetic System were a sort of supergroup consisting of keyboard virtuoso and orchestra director Vince Tempera, Cinevox sibling Franco Bixio and a young Fabio Frizzi.They only released a 7″ in 1977, which has now become one of the rarest and most sought-after of the entire Cinevox catalogue! Both sides of this 45rpm, here officially reissued for the first time ever, contain a soundtrack motive: “Godzilla” was made for Luigi Cozzi’s 1977 psychedelic version of the eponymous classic movie, and it’s a synth-based acid trip with a space and krautrock flavour, while “Escape” was written for the film “Operazione K: sparate a vista”, and it’s a more up-tempo funky and groovy song.A beautiful discovery that demonstrates once again that the ’70s never cease to surprise!

|Mansun||The Dead Flowers Reject||Kscope||LP||Mansun were one of the most iconic and innovative British bands of the late 90s.Having signed to the legendary record label Parlophone (home to The Beatles, Radiohead and Sigur Ros) they released four albums – Attack of the Grey Lantern (1997), Six (1998), Little Kix (2000) and the compilation Kleptomania following the band’s split – as well as a popular and now rare series of EPs.Kscope, having now acquired this impressive catalogue, are running a thorough reissue series that delves into a treasure trove of previously unreleased audio and visual material, including the much-awaited 21st-anniversary remaster of their experimental Top 10 album Six, which jumped back into the UK charts in 2019, as #1 Vinyl album, #5 Indie album, #12 Physical album and #36 Album.
The Dead Flowers Reject, the alter-ego album to Six, was recorded at the same time as an alternative, more linear and marginally less jaggedly eccentric selection of songs as insurance should the label reject the other.The Mansun frontman and songwriter Paul Draper described the album: “The Dead Flowers Reject could be thought of as the fourth Mansun album…I think the record [had it come out] would probably have been my favourite Mansun album: it’s the closest to how we played live”.Previously only available as a bootleg, The Dead Flowers Reject has since been released as one of four CDs in the 2019 21st-anniversary deluxe edition of Six, and now, for the first time ever, is available on vinyl.
This exclusive LP is available as a Record Store Day 2020 only release on 180gm heavyweight white vinyl in a single sleeve.
|Marc Bolan & T.Rex||Shadowhead||Demon Records||Available exclusively to RSD2020, Demon Records presents Marc Bolan & T.Rex ‘Shadowhead’
Marc Bolan’s passions included the blues, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, hard rock and disco-soul, and his intent to explore these genres are all visited on this collection of classic album tracks and singles.His influences – Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton/Cream and Bob Dylan are all apparent amongst the material on Shadowhead, but the music here is unique.Bolan’s creative fire produced a phenomenal catalogue of work: the material on this album was recorded over five years (1972 – 1976), in seven studios, in five countries.
This record provides insights into Bolan’s creative process whilst keeping the essence of the music in its classic form.Shadowhead showcases the development of tracks such as Precious Star and Groove A Little, and a track that made its public debut on the CD release, Blues Jam (Dreamy Lady Session).Other tracks reveal many of the instruments and sounds from the master tapes to enable the working processes to be more clearly understood.

|Marker Starling/Ha Ha Collective||Silk Rock||Tin Angel Records||7″||“Silk Rock is a new standalone track, which, with ninth album HIGH JANUARY, takes Toronto’s Chris A.Cummings deeper into the Markerverse.Rather than record a B-side, the novel decision to record two separate versions was made.The Marker Starling version was recorded first, with visiting Canadian Cummings (aka Marker Starling, also the song’s composer) on a day trip to Wilton Way studio in London with his regular UK backing band: Euan Rodger (drums), Joe Carvell (bass) and Andy Whitehead (guitar).Joined for this occasion by fellow Canadian Ian Daniel Kehoe (guest vocals) and a 3-piece choir (Victoria Rose Hamblett, Marie Merlet and Aurora Barrett), the group recorded the song in one day, including overdubs.A long-gestating idea which had its origins in the late nineties, the Silk Rock concept had been auditioned and scrapped many times over in Cummings’ home demo lab in Toronto.The main riff had been the basis of many earlier versions.The breakthrough happened with the addition of the chorus – the “can I be myself” section – and the instrumental bridge which uses different chords than the main body of the song.The coda section (“out of this nightmare and into your own dreams”) was also a later addition.
The second version of the song, by London’s Haha Sounds Collective and featuring Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier on lead vocals, was recorded subsequently over several sessions, as it was a more elaborate affair involving 12 musicians.Also recorded at Wilton Way by Syd Kemp, the second version takes the initial concept and stretches it out, giving it breathing space and a huge mood.It pares the idea down to its essence, then builds it up vertically, stacking instruments and colours, creating an altogether different experience.

|Metronomy||Metronomy Forever Remixes||Because Music||12″||Best remixes from the current Metronomy Forever campaign onto a 12″ including Idles take on Wedding Bells, the Bristol band’s first official remix created for another artist.
Dubbed the ‘Til Dev Do Us Party Remix’, Idles’ reinvention of ‘Wedding Bells’ came from the long-running mutual respect that Metronomy and IDLES share.The original’s driving bass is pushed to a pulsating new peak, while the distortion layered on Joe Mount’s vocals increase the track’s tension.The result is manic, energising and surprisingly uplifting.
Next up is Michael Mayer’s What IZ Love remix of ‘Insecurity’ where we see the co-owner of the Kompakt label reinvent the original track as a sprawling 8-minute techno exploration.
Then we have interdisciplinary audio-visual artist Anna Lann who applies some audacious experimentation to her remix of Salted Caramel Ice Cream.Mount’s topline is twisted beyond all recognition and layered with skittering beats and foreboding vibes, making for a waking nightmare.
Hotly-tipped Domino artist, Georgia, who looks set to make a major breakthrough in 2020 delivers her playful mix of Wedding Bells, heightening the track’s innate sense of fun, going big in every way – imposing synths undercut by seismic bass and hyperactive percussion.
|Metronomy & Clara Luciani||La Baie / La Grenade||Because Music||7″ White||“Numbered & coloured 7″” edition.
It all started with French songwriter Clara Luciana’s first record ‘Sainte-Victoire’ (now platinum) which included a cover adapted in French of her favourite Metronomy song ‘The Bay’.
She then met Metronomy in Paris, shared artistic visions and eventually decided to conceive this joint 7’’ project which includes her cover of ‘The Bay’ & Metronomy’s take on her own track ‘La Grenade’.
Joseph Mount & Clara Luciani imagined & created together the 7’’ artwork”

|Milton Nascimento||Ultimo Trem||Far Out Recordings||Double LP (Red Coloured Vinyl)||First time on vinyl!
Following the release of Milton Nascimento’s Maria Maria, Far Out Recordings proudly presents Nascimento’s 1980 follow up.With the success of Maria Maria in 1976 behind them, Nascimento reunited with his writing partner Fernando Brant in 1980 to produce another ballet, ‘Ultimo Trem (Last train)’.This time, they chose to tackle a more contemporarily relevant subject, the impact of the closure of a train line that connected certain towns and cities in the North East of Minas Gerais to the coast.”The military government shut down the route and the whole region began to fade away,” explains Milton.”I love train rides” adds the composer, “But today there are almost no trains to Brazil.So when I go to the US and Europe, any time I can, I go by train.The longer the journey the better.”Featuring much of the same all-star line-up as Maria Maria – including legendary Brazilian musicians Naná Vasconcelos, João Donato, Paulinho Jobim and members of Som Imaginário, amongst many others, like Maria Maria, the album holds what Milton himself considers to be the definitive versions of some of his most beloved tracks, including ‘Saídas E Bandeiras’ and ‘Ponte de Areia’.The title track, ‘Ultimo Trem’ – performed exquisitely by Zezé Mota with a choir and piano – is a mournful lament about the human consequences of the axed line.The ballet brought great media attention to the campaign against closure.”Most of Fernando’s lyrics have some political tone,” says Milton, “This one helped the area a lot because the politicians grew concerned about the subjects.”Fernando’s and Milton’s shared passion for the sounds, smells and memories of trains, inspired the soundtrack for the production which premièred in 1980.’A Viagem (The trip)’, launched with a train’s steam whistle, sees Milton’s guitar moving to a train’s rhythm.In contrast to the usual lyricism, ‘Bicho Homen (Beastly man)’ and ‘Decreto (Degree)’ are atypically upbeat and funky, their vocals a mesh of wordless male voices resembling the then fashionable Swingles Singers’ renderings of Bach.’E Daí? (And so what?)’, and ‘Olho d’Agua (Water’s Eye)’ were both drawn from ‘Clube Da Esquina’.’Olho d’Agua’ is mellow and delicate and Milton’s homage to the great voices of Brazil whilst ‘E Daí? (And so what?)’ is a stunning mosaic of voices.The unusual ‘O Velho (The Old Man)’ conjures up an image of an old shaman singing alone into the wind against the cries of nature.Perhaps the most affecting songs are Nascimento’s ‘Itamarandiba’ and ‘Oração (Prayer)’.The latter is a cry for a change in the situation whilst ‘Itamarandiba’ ends with an upbeat, whirling Hammond organ and guitar timepiece.The closing track ‘Ponta de Areia (Sand Edge)’, was based on one of Fernando’s newspaper stories and became one of Milton’s most famous pieces, covered by musicians across the planet, including Wayne Shorter and Earth, Wind and Fire.It reappeared as a ghostly 45-seconds memory on the ‘Milton e Gil’ album, his millennial collaboration with Gilberto Gil.After 27 years of being locked inside contracts and record company legalities, these sublime songs were finally released in 2003 as a double CD package, along with Maria Maria.Set for its first ever vinyl release for this year’s Record Store Day, on limited edition red vinyl, Ultimo Trem sounds as fresh and relevant now as when Brazilian music was still a South American secret.

Written throughout the Autumn and Winter of 2010/2011 by band leader and guitarist Craig Fortnam with a pencil and paper, guitar and piano and recorded ‘at various locations in southern England on his laptop’, ‘I a moon’ retains the unique NSRO line-up of strings, woodwind, percussion, guitars, keyboards and voices but with a darker, less pastoral sound, with synth and percussion taking a more prominent role than on their previous two albums.Another departure is a move away from using poetry to the more personal use of self-penned lyrics : ‘I a moon, orbiting myself.Sometime gravity pulls me close….’.
On this release, the influences apparent on the first two albums (Britten, Vaughan Williams, Reich, ISB, 70’s prog) have been augmented by a distinct whiff of Krautrock (on the instrumental ‘Berliner Luft’) while the angular guitars of ‘Ring Moonlets’ show a debt to the dual guitar textures of Deerhoof.NSRO continue to blend their influences in a highly imaginative and unusual way, while all the time having an ear for the beautiful, be it in melody, texture or chord.North Sea Radio Orchestra – ‘I a moon’; beautiful, redolent, ancient and modern, English and world, unique.

|Ocean Colour Scene||One From The Modern||UMC/Island||2LP Green Vinyl||The 4th Ocean Colour Scene album was a slight departure from the previous two albums, with a more reflective, soulful and pastoral sound as well as a more political slant, albeit with a late-60s psychedelic slant, reminiscent of The Byrds, Small Faces or later-period Beatles.The whole album still retains the band’s trademark melodic style, with a refined, rich sound that gives the material a contemporary twist, avoiding the pitfalls of relying on a merely nostalgic or ‘retro’ orientated approach.Check out the psychedelic freak-out instrumental ending of I Am the News…! The album includes three hit singles – the protest song Profit in Peace, followed by the more classic OCS sound of So Low and double ‘A’ side – I Am the News / July.The album was produced by Brendan Lynch and the song Soul Driver is dedicated to Paul Weller, who mentored the band.Weller sings backing vocals on the track – No One at All.Remastered at Abbey Road, released on heavyweight GREEN vinyl.Exclusive, limited edition double LP, in gatefold sleeve.All formats now deleted – the vinyl has been out of print for many years.Includes download code.||Rock||Blues||1700||Universal|

|OST: Dracula / The Curse of Frankenstein||Dracula / The Curse of Frankenstein (Hammer Horror)||Silva Screen||2LP||World Premiere Recordings of the Complete Scores from Two Classic Hammer Films of the 1950s
THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN starred Peter Cushing as Baron Victor Frankenstein and Christopher Lee as The Creature.This outstanding 1957 horror film began a whole series of films starring these two great icons of terror and was one of the best movies from Hammer Productions.DRACULA, made in 1958, also starred Peter Cushing (as Doctor Van Helsing) and Christopher Lee (as Count Dracula).It is difficult to overestimate the significance of DRACULA as it set the tone for Hammer’s movie output over the next two decades when British horror films were among the most admired and popular films.DRACULA created international stars out of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.
The music for both these films was composed by James Bernard, who created music for many more classic Hammer films including: SHE – THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT – THE DAMNED – DRACULA: PRINCE OF DARKNESS – THE DEVIL RIDES OUT – TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA – THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES.A distinctive trait in Bernard’s Hammer scores is their use of clashing harmonies, often created by doubling a motif a tone higher, as in his famous Dracula theme.His music is also frenzied and pacey at times, frequently making use of percussion such as timpani and snares.He could also write lush, romantic melodies, however.such as appear in Frankenstein Created Woman, Taste the Blood of Dracula and Scars of Dracula.

– Housed in a gatefold jacket”For a few dollars more” (1965) is the second chapter in Sergio Leone’s “Dollar trilogy”, and also the second made in collaboration with Ennio Morricone.The Maestro here chooses a ‘poor’ registry, consisting of folk instruments such as ocarina, Jew’s harp and chimes, respectively used to accompany the entry stage of the three main actors.But there are, as usual, the contributions of Alessandro Alessandroni and his Cantori Moderni choir, for an incredibly exciting final result.

– Housed in a gatefold jacketYear 1964.Almost out of nowhere, the little-known and regarded director Sergio Leone transposes into a western key a film by Akira Kurosawa, and by putting together all the right pieces, adding a bit of intuition, lays down new rules for the ‘spaghetti western’ genre, giving way to an endless series of imitations.”A Fistful of Dollars” would not have the same impact without the inimitable music written by Ennio Morricone, who had curiously been an old elementary school Leone’s classmate.The main soundtrack themes were chosen from two arrangements that Morricone had already drafted two years earlier; once removed the lyrics and added the unmistakable whistle of Alessandro Alessandroni, the spaghetti-sound was finally complete!The film was an incredible success, and projected Leone, Morricone, and in particular the actor Clint Eastwood into the Olympus of the Great.The soundtrack was released for the first time the following year (1965), along with the one of Sergio Leone’s subsequent work “For a Few Dollars More”.

– Limited to 1000 copies
– Housed in a gatefold jacketAfter the “Dollar Trilogy”, Sergio Leone was given a new offer on anotherwestern movie that he could not refuse.Following his own rules again, and working on the film story with Bernardo Bertolucci and Dario Argento, hedirected the monumental “Once upon a time in the West”, featuring the American actors Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson among others.Each character is strongly stereotyped here, a fact emphasized by the motion picture soundtrack, once again delivered by Ennio Morricone in collaboration with his orchestra and Alessandro “The Whistler” Alessandroni and his Choir, with the addition of the female singer Edda Dell’Orso.The flavor is epic, but also very romantic at some points, since there’s a love story involving Jill, an ex-prostitute, and one of her old lovers, Cheyenne.This is another excellent demonstration that, when it comes to the exquisite blending of images and music, Italians do it better!

– Limited to 600 copiesReleased in 1972, Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Last Tango in Paris” is one of the most popular erotic drama movies ever made, and has always been subject to controversy and rejection; great works of art are used to that, one might say, and maybe it’s not a coincidence that the film is still discussed a lot today.Its soundtrack was written by world famous sax player Gato Barbieri and arranged by Oliver Nelson, and it beautifully blends – as of course the main title may suggest – typical tango melodies with the melancholy of orchestral arrangements and the erotic tension brought by jazz saxophone.

La Dolce Vita – Giovanni Fusco, Nino RotaMarcello Mastroianni (September 28, 1924 – December 19, 1996) was an Academy Award nominated Italian film actor.
Born in Fontana Liri, a small village in the Apennines, Mastroianni grew up in Turin and Rome.During World War II he was interned in a Nazi prison, but he escaped and hid in Venice.
He soon became a major international star, and among his 40 films, Marcello Mastroianni played a homosexual, a cuckolded husband, a pregnant man and, as he said, “wretches, where sex didn’t even enter the picture.” Yet, as demonstrated in this fascinating study of his work, the film icon never shook the Don Giovanni image of his star turn in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, with Anita Ekberg in 1960, where he played a disillusioned and self-loathing tabloid columnist who spends his days and nights exploring Rome’s high society.

|Predatur||Seen You Here||on the dole records||7″||“Seen You Here”45 rpm single from 1982 reissued for the first time ever !! The Jobcentre Rejects series of compilation albums is a Nuggets, Pebbles, Killed By Death for the NWOBHM gengre.The singles featured on Jobcentre Rejects are all very rare and highly collectable.This limited RSD vinyl 45rpm re-issue is a good oportunity to lay your hands on a gem featured on Jobcentre Rejects at a more affordable price.
Predatür unleashed the irresistable “Seen You Here” 45 back in ’82.It was the Reading bands’ only single, but what a DIY total knockout blast of a vinyl fortyfive it is!!! The Motörhead-evoking umlaut aside, the overriding influence on the rough creation is Status Quo and (loads of) beer-stained guitar boogie.
Housed in a picture sleeve that appears to have been drawned by someone in the last row of the class room and a sound that is perfect raw pub-metal and punk rock boogie, this is stuff destined to drive its listeners into an unhinged binge of air guitar frenzy and spontanious loud hollers of joy
The original artwork from 1982 is reproduced and the sound is carefully remastered.

We have a very short forecast running on this title – closing this Friday, February 14th.

|Qasim Naqvi||Beta||Erased Tapes||MLP||Exclusive RSD vinyl release. Pakistani-American avant-composer, and drummer from the cult experimental acoustic trio Dawn of Midi, Qasim Naqvi has announced a new record titled Beta to be released as a limited edition on clear vinyl for Record Store Day 2020 on April 18.
Meant as a sister release to last year’s acclaimed six-part modular synth suite Teenages, Beta is a series of experiments chronicling Naqvi’s understanding of writing for this type of instrument and the growth of the instrument itself.If Teenages captured the sound of electronics living, breathing and mutating of their own accord, Beta rather describes the moment they came to life.The B-side features a previously unreleased live version of the title track ‘Teenages’, which was recorded at the first Erased Tapes x LCO: Purcell Session at Southbank Centre, London in February 2019.
