          Hania Rani

          Venice - Infinitely Avantgarde (OST)

            Hania Rani is a Polish pianist, composer and singer. She employs a delicate, vulnerable, and minimalist playing style with modern recording techniques to evoke themes of self, home, and landscape. She was classically trained at the Feliks Nowowiejski music school in her hometown, where she met cellist and best friend Dobrawa Czocher. For her 2019 debut album Esja, she received five Fryderyk nominations in Poland.

            Her score for Venice - Infinitely Avantgarde is a fruit of Rani's city walks through Venice and discovering its museums, narrow streets, and landmarks. The documentary, directed by Michele Mally, follows a tour through the city and takes in masterpieces by Tiepolo, Canaletto, Rosalba Carriera. Venice is unique for its identity, which combines contrasting DNA blueprints that have been there for over 1600 years: the charm of decadence and the excitement of being on the cutting edge. Cosmopolitan from the outset, Venice has always been a city of commercial and cultural exchange with the East and, taking into account its fragility, has always had vision and been inspired by the future.



              In 1991, English shoegaze band Chapterhouse released the single “Mesmerise”, which was a non-album single. The track was cited by Robert Smith of The Cure as an influence on their 1992 album Wish. “Mesmerise” was released on the same titled EP which came out simultaneously with the single and contained three more non-album tracks, “Precious One”, “Summer Chill” and “Then We’ll Rise”. Later on, all four featured on the 1996 Rownderbowt and/or the 2007 The Best Of Chapterhouse compilations.

              The Seahorses

              Do It Yourself - 2022 Reissue

                After John Squire left The Stone Roses, he formed The Seahorses in 1996 together with Stuart Fletcher, Chris Helme and Andy Watts. The year after they released their debut album Do It Yourself, which was produced by Tony Visconti. Visconti had his first hit with T. Rex' “Ride A White Swan” and was involved in many David Bowie productions.

                The album was well received and entered the UK Album Charts at #2 and received a Platinum status. It featured three popular singles: “Love Is The Law”, “Blinded By The Sun” and “Love Me And Leave Me”. The latter was Liam Gallagher's first song writing credit. Their success resulted in support slots with The Rolling Stones, U2 and Oasis. Unfortunately, The Seahorses aborded the recordings of their follow-up album to split up due to musical differences.

                Do It Yourself is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2022

                  Guru's Jazzmatazz 1, originally released in 1993, is one of the first albums to combine a live jazz band with hip hop production and rapping. Guru had a vision and brought together a diverse group of jazz cats both old and new school; Lonnie Liston Smith, Branford Marsalis, Ronny Jordan, Donald Byrd and Roy Ayers and vocalists like Carleen Anderson, N'Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies) and French rapper MC Solaar have cooperated on this classic album. Jazzmatazz proved to be a highly influential album and a huge commercial success.

                    Leading up to the release of their 1991 debut studio album Whirlpool, Chapterhouse released the single “Pearl” as the album’s only single. It reached #67 on the UK Singles Chart and remains one of their biggest hits. The track also features backing vocals by Rachel Goswell, who is the vocalist of Slowdive. The 12” of Pearl features two non-album tracks in addition, “Come Heaven” and “In My Arms”. Both were solely included on the 1996 compilation Rownderbowt.

                    Laurie Anderson

                    Bright Red

                      Five years after the release of 1989’s pop-oriented album Strange Angels, Laurie Anderson followed up with the avant-garde concept album Bright Red, a Brian Eno production exploring much darker territory. Eno also co-wrote four tracks; “The Puppet Motel”, “Muddy River”, “Poison” and “Tightrope”. For the recordings, Anderson was supported by Adrian Belew, who provided guitars on several tracks. Belew is best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist of King Crimson. During the time of the recording of Bright Red, Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed just started dating. They collaborated on a number of recordings together, including the duet “In Our Sleep”, that is featured on Bright Red.

                      Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers

                      Reflections In Blue

                        The Jazz Messengers were a jazz combo that was founded by Art Blakey, together with Horace Silver. Soon after its founding, the Jazz Messengers became known as an incubator for young talent. Band leader Art Blakey led the collective for over 35 years. The 1978 formation has been described by critics as one of Blakey’s strongest groups in years, featuring trumpeter Valery Ponomarev, Robert Watson (also known as Bobby Watson) on alto saxophone, David Schnitter on tenor saxophone, Dennis Irwin on bass and James Williams on piano. With this formation, he recorded the album Reflections In Blue in 1978 in the Netherlands and released the year after on Timeless Records.

                        Tim Buckley

                        Goodbye And Hello

                          Tim Buckley released his second album Goodbye And Hello in 1967 on Elektra Records, which was produced by Jack Holzman, also known as the founder of Elektra Records. It was the follow-up after his crucial self-titled debut album the year before. According to critics, the album is inspired by the spirit of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and includes fan favourites “No Man Can Find The War”, “I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain” and the title track.

                          Shuggie Otis

                          Here Comes Shuggie Otis

                            Here Comes Shuggie Otis is the debut album by guitarist and songwriter Shuggie Otis, released when he was only 18 years old. Produced and arranged by his father, Johnny Otis, the set features nine original cuts co-written by the pair. The album is evenly divided between vocal tunes and instrumentals. It was this effort that earned him the title of “child prodigy”. The album stands the test of time, since tracks like “Gospel Groove” and “Funky Thithee” are fan favourites to this day. Shuggie's guitar-picking isn't a million miles away from Hendrix, and is backed by members of The Crusaders for this session. Listenin' to Shuggie Otis is like sitting on a Californian beach for the sunrise on a perfect Summer morning, watching the dolphins mingle with the surfers as the solar rays dapple on the rippling ocean currents. Every home needs one!


                            Freefall EP

                              Formed in Reading in 1987, Chapterhouse took the unusual step of rehearsing and gigging for well over a year before recording even a demotape. Initially, the band got lumped in with the British acid rock scene of the time, a mistake hardly rectified by the band's early performances supporting the rather laidback Spacemen 3. Chapterhouse eventually escaped from one genre only to find themselves amongst the infamous shoegaze groups of 1991 such as Lush, Moose and Slowdive.

                              Freefall was their 1990 debut EP and includes the popular track “Falling Down”, which was also included in their debut full-length album Whirlpool. The other three tracks, “Need (Somebody)”, “Inside Of Me” and “Sixteen Years”, were never included on their albums on vinyl and only appeared on this EP.

                                        The Boo Radleys’ third album Wake Up! reached the number one spot in the UK album charts. Although their previous albums received critical acclaim, this was the album which opened the doors to a much bigger audience. One of the factors was the release of the sunny Britpop Top 10 single “Wake Up Boo!”. It became their biggest hit internationally and it was the most-played song on the UK radio in 1995. The second an third single, “Find The Answer Within” and “It’s Lulu”, also charted in the UK Top 40. Different styles of British pop can be found in their music, but most of the darkness of their previous records are replaced by the grand pop with big choruses and bright melodies.

                                        Troublegum - Reissue

                                          Therapy? are an alternative metal band from Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1989 by guitarist-vocalist Andy Cairns and drummer-vocalist Fyfe Ewing. To complete the lineup, the band recruited bassist Michael McKeegan.

                                          1994 saw the release of the commercially successful Troublegum album which earned the band appearances at a string of rock and indie festivals, including Reading, Donington and Phoenix in the UK alone, as well as a clutch of top 40 singles. It achieved a string of nominations in end-of-year polls, including a Mercury Music Prize nomination, and success at the Kerrang! Awards.

                                          The album has a melodically dark, metal-like sound. Troublegum is generally considered to be Therapy? at their musical and commercial peak and has since sold over one million copies worldwide.

                                          The album includes singles and videos for “Screamager”, “Turn”, “Nowhere”, “Trigger Inside”, “Die Laughing” and “Isolation” (Joy Division cover).

                                          The Coral

                                          Magic And Medicine

                                            The Coral are an English rock band, formed in 1996 by Ian Skelly, Paul Duffy, James Skelly, Lee Southall and Bill Ryder-Jones. The band first emerged during the early 2000s and found success with their debut album The Coral [MOVLP338]. Their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2002 Mercury Music Prize and later voted the fourth best album of the year by NME Magazine.

                                            Magic and Medicine is the second album by The Coral, released in 2003 in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number 1 in the charts. The singles “Don’t Think You’re the First” and “Pass It On” entered the top ten in the UK.

                                            The album title originates from a lyric in Time Travel, the hidden track on the band’s debut album: “Well there’s a war going on, ain’t the obvious one. It’s between magic and medicine”.

                                            This is The Coral’s last album with Bill Ryder-Jones, who departed in 2008 to start a very successful solo-career.

                                              British shoegazing/alternative rock band Chapterhouse released two albums during their existence, Whirlpool (1991) and Blood Music (1993). The second and final album has a more pronounced electronic sound than its predecessor. But they also managed to keep many elements of shoegaze in their music. This thrilling record defines their music in singles like "She's a Vision" and "We Are the Beautiful". The album ends with the awesome "Picnic," a 15-minute ambient/rock piece that arguably was their best-ever number.

                                                "Roots & Echoes" is the fourth full-length album from cosmic scouse psyche rockers The Coral. Originally released in 2007, it was produced by Craig Silvey. As with their previous releases they're immersed in a heady mixture of folk, Merseybeat and psychedelia, but this time their sound was much more focused and refined than before. Another winner!!

                                                    Tindersticks are an English alternative rock band led by the singer Stuart A. Staples. They recorded several albums which became popular years after their release. One of them is the slightly bright but still dark coloured Curtains. The songs on the album develops themselves into intimidate and destructive pearls. Stuart and Co created some melancholic melodies questioning on privacy issues and the feelings of lost. The warmer tones can be found in the vocal parts and putting away some of the depressive moods from their first albums.

                                                    Tindersticks recorded eleven albums to date and recorded songs for which Stuart A. Staples wrote lyrics based on his own life and that of people surrounding him.

                                                    This expanded edition contains the 15 original album songs plus 9 bonus tracks with, among others, “Paco’s Theme”, “A Marriage Made In Heaven” (duet with Isabella Rossellini) and “Rented Rooms”.

                                                    Simple Pleasures - Expanded Vinyl Edition

                                                      Tindersticks is an English alternative rock band formed in 1991 by Stuart Staples, Dave Boulter, Neil Fraser, Dickon Hinchliffe, Al Macaulay and John Thompson. In 1993 they released their first self-titled album, and the following years they recorded several albums, documentaries and film soundtracks. During the 90s Tindersticks stood apart with their dark, literary lyrics and melancholy orchestrations and were a different breed as both the British indie scene and the Brit-Pop sound dominated the UK charts.

                                                      Their fourth album Simple Pleasures steered the group into snappier and lighter songs, however the liner notes proved that the recording process was a painstaking experience. The respectful cover of Odyssey’s “If You’re Looking For A Way Out” is a perfect example of their new influences by soul, gospel and jazz music.

                                                      This Music On Vinyl Expanded Edition features the original album (9 Tracks) and no less than 12 bonus tracks, including “Twisted Wheel” (which is the demo version of “Can We Start Again”) and the Adrian Sherwood remix of “I Know That Loving”.

                                                      First Utterance

                                                        First Utterance is the debut album of the progressive folk band Comus. It was released in 1971, with the opening song “Diana” being released as a single.

                                                        The album was notable for its unique blend of progressive rock, folk, psychedelia, and elements of paganism and the macabre. The overall thematic tone of the album is of vulnerable innocence facing abusive power, the songs dealing with violence (“Drip Drip”), rape (“Diana”, “Song to Comus”), and insulin shock therapy (“The Prisoner”). These themes contrast starkly with the acoustic sound of the record, featuring acoustic guitar, violin, flute, and lyrical, almost Arcadian, female harmonies.

                                                        References to Comus by other bands and artists include Opeth, citing its lyrics in album and song titles and tattoos. Experimental outfit Current 93 also covered “Diana” as the opening song on their 1997 LP Horsey.

                                                        The cover artwork was drawn in ball point pen by Roger Wootton, lead singer and songwriter of the band. The centrefold artwork was painted by guitarist Glenn Goring.

                                                        Reviews were favourable, such as the NME praised the album’s “highly unusual but fascinating sound” and Time Out said “the overall effect is unique”.

                                                        There is funk, and there is Funk. This here is of course the latter. Struttin’ is the third studio album by the funk group The Meters, originally released in 1970. The first single was the song “Chicken Strut”. It reached #11 on the U.S. R&B Singles chart. It may not appear to be drastically different than its predecessors, at least not on the surface. After all, the title of the lead single “Chicken Strut” intentionally recalls their previous biggest “Cissy Strut,”and it has the same basic Meters groove. And if the essential sound remains unchanged, that’s because that organic, earthy funk is The Meters’ signature. Other groups have tried to replicate it, but nobody ever played it better. It was on this album The Meters introduced vocals to their style as well, with Art Neville’s leads on covers of Ty Hunter’s soulful uptown shuffle “Darling, Darling, Darling,” Jimmy Webb’s groovy ballad “Wichita Lineman,” and Lee Dorsey’s “Ride Your Pony” (the Meters provided support on the original recording).

                                                        Judee Sill

                                                        Heart Food

                                                        Despite garnering favourable reviews and even though the artist performed doggedly as an opening act for a number of established artists, Judee Sill's eponymous 1971 debut album sold poorly and failed to propel the Californian musician to stardom. Undeterred, she returned with 1973's 'Heart Food' backed by engineer Henry Lewy and a band of stellar musicians and vocalists for a record altogether livelier and more confident than her debut. 'Heart Food' is similar to its predecessor in that it features Sill's multi-tracked vocals prominently, and that guitar and piano are prevalent, but other than that it's a forward step. Sill's songs have a gospel purity to them at times, as on the solo piano piece "When the Bridegroom Comes," written with then-boyfriend David Bearden. The best of these hymnal songs is surely "The Kiss," a timeless and beautiful celebration of romantic union with painstaking orchestration. It has an eerie, ethereal quality, and is renowned as one of Sill's finest compositions. The arrangements and orchestrations, done by Sill herself, complement the songs and the music and if there were any doubts about her abilities she certainly proves herself an expert songwriter and visionary with this album. Listen out, for example, for the ebullient backing vocals on "Down Where the Valleys Are Low," her most gospel-inspired song replete with organ licks and vocalists evoking a gospel choir.

                                                        Elsewhere, the themes of the first album are recalled on "The Vigilante" and "The Pearl," although they're less fragile and more forthright. The opening "There's A Rugged Road" is possessing of a memorable melody and strong structure, which is the case with every song here. The delicacy of the first album is replaced by something beefier (the rollicking "Soldier of the Heart," which should have been a major hit, which rocks harder than Sill's previous pop attempt, the glorious "Jesus Was A Cross Maker") but the subtle intricacies remain: on the surface, this sounds simple and effortless, and that's testament to Sill's amazing abilities.

                                                        The album's defining moment, however, must be the epic "The Donor," which displays the majority of Sill's many talents. The first four minutes or so are devoted to choral chanting and haunting piano lines, and the song becomes a beautiful, grand choral requiem. The chorus of "Kyrie Eleison" is stunning, but the dynamics of the song make it more like a suite and one of the defining moments on any record by any singer-songwriter. It's hard to imagine anybody else even daring to attempt something as grand and opulent as this and having the audacity and skills to pull it off.

                                                        Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth) describes her music on the sleeve, 'take a listen to Judee Sill now, some 30 years after she was captured on two timeless masterpieces: Her overwhelming songs of love and loss, both earthly and divine; a voice which alone could melt all defenses and when in harmony, could create heaven, right here on earth.'

                                                        Andy says: Very similar sound but even better songs than on her debut. Includes "The Kiss", which is absolutely gorgeous and for some, her best ever composition. If you don't already know Judee Sill well you won't believe how amazing her music is!

                                                          Slowdive were, in one way, a reaction to the fist-aloft bravado of the arse-end of baggy. Yet their gorgeous swathes of disorientating, hypnotic sound actually perfectly fitted in with early morning comedowns; we're talking about 1991 here! They aimed for a womb-like cosy dreaminess and with their three pre-album EPs looked like they were going to take over. "Slowdive", "Morningrise" and "Just For A Day" are all included here. Their main influence was The Cocteau Twins, but along with My Bloody Valentine, early Boo Radleys and others, the press christened them 'shoe-gazers'. A lot was written and there were just as many detractors as fans, but this fan, along with many others, was a little dissapointed by this, their debut LP. Yes it flows, drifts then envelops, but the songs weren't quite as good as expected. But, y'know: tell that to Babyshambles! With the inclusion of those lovely three EPs and a three-song Peel Session, this is now a very lush (though occasionally meandering) and beautiful disc. Recommended.

                                                            "Black Beauty, Miles Davis At Fillmore West", was recorded on April 10, 1970 at Fillmore West, San Francisco, when Davis performed as the opening act for the Grateful Dead. The recording took place shortly after the release of Miles’ classic album Bitches Brew. The album was released in 1973, originally in Japan only. "Black Beauty", a true jazz-rock album, captured one of Davis’ first performances at a rock venue during the early stages of his electric period. At the concert, he led his band (saxophonist Steve Grossman, bassist Dave Holland, keyboardist Chick Corea, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and percussionist Airto Moreira) through one continuously performed set list.
                                                            The songs in the band’s set list were as followed: “Directions”, “Miles Runs the Voodoo Down”, “Willie Nelson”, “I Fall In Love Too Easily”, “Sanctuary”, “It’s About That Time”, “Bitches Brew”, “Masqualero”, “Spanish Key”, and “The Theme”. They were performed as one continuous and uninterrupted piece of music, a practice Davis had begun in 1967. He later explained in his autobiography that performing these kinds of long musical suites without breaks allowed more space for improvisations in concert.

                                                            The original Japanese booklet is included in this vinyl package.

Turning the flamboyant Boy George into a star, the soulful outing incorporated elements of pop, rock, new wave, dance and Caribbean rhythms and sprouted several international hit songs.

                                                              “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” hit the #1 spot in several countries and turned out to be a song that resonates to this day with its universal feel of heartache. All in all, this set is a highlight of 80s pop music, that set the stage for one of the decade’s most loved and oft-remembered bands.

                                                              World Gone Wrong - 180g Vinyl Edition

                                                                'World Gone Wrong' is the 29th Bob Dylan studio album, released in 1993. It was Dylan’s second consecutive collection of only traditional folk songs, performed acoustically with guitar and harmonica. The songs tend to deal with darker and more tragic themes than the previous outing, 'Good As I Been To You'.

                                                                'World Gone Wrong' is an exceptional album, boasting a strong set of songs given performances so fully realized that they seemed like modern protest songs. Much of this record is fairly obscure to anyone outside of dedicated folk fans; “Delia” (covered by Johnny Cash the following year) and “Stack-A-Lee” are the most familiar items, yet they’re given traditional readings, meaning that the latter doesn’t quite seem like “Stagger Lee.”

                                                                But even if these are traditionalist, they’re spirited and lively renditions, and Dylan seems more connected to the music than he has in years. That sense of connection, plus the terrific choice of songs, makes this one of his best, strongest albums of the second half of his career.

'Congratulations' is a collection of nine individual musical tours de force sequenced to flow with sonic and thematic coherence. Produced by MGMT and Sonic Boom, the album was recorded throughout 2009 in Upstate New York, Malibu and Brooklyn and features the band's core duo (Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser) performing with Matt Asti, Will Berman and James Richardson, their live band.

                                                                  Newly remastered from the original analog tapes, this 2LP edition of MGMT’s psychedelic rock masterpiece from 2010 is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and features the paradoxical “Flash Delirium.”

                                                                  This album is more focused on atmosphere and mood, some even say this album is a turning point for YMO and the international pop music scene. They successfully merged lyrics, sound bites and their signature electriconically programmed music on 'BGM'.

                                                                  "1000 Knives" and "Cue" are the most famous; the hand clap on "1000 Knives" is probably one of the most used samples in the 80s, early 90s.

                                                                  Ella Fitzgerald is widely heralded for her clean phrasing, scat-singing and a confident sense of swing. Viewed as one of the world's most popular jazz singers, she performed alongside Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington. Her outstanding performances on record and live yielded both critical and popular success during her lifetime.

                                                                  'Lullabies Of Birdland' consists of recordings from 1945 to 1955. It offers a wonderful set of Swing-era standards, impossible to listen to without imagining yourself sipping cognac in a smoky jazz club on Broadway!

                                                                  STAFF COMMENTS

I first discovered the music of Ella Fitzgerald in a small bookshop and had to know what was playing – It was ‘Under a Blanket of Blue’ with Louis Armstrong; it’s been a favourite of mine ever since. This incredible and powerful album is a treat to the ears.

Beefheart, aka Don Van Vliet, filtered the raw influence of the blues and R&B through his own singular musical sensibility and left-field lyrical wordplay, and surrounded himself with some of the most talented and inventive young musicians around. The result was an album that, even in the heady year in which it was released, sounded like nothing else, and the stage for one of rock's most iconoclastic and idiosyncratic careers.

                                                                    With backup from the first, and perhaps finest, incarnation of Beefheart's legendary Magic Band (including future solo star Ry Cooder on guitar and teenage drum prodigy John "Drumbo" French), and production from future studio superstar Richard Perry, Beefheart unveils his fully-formed sound and vision on such landmark tracks as "Zig Zag Wanderer," "Abba Zaba," "Dropout Boogie," "I'm Glad" and "Electricity".

Is an album by jazz, blues and gospel singer / pianist / songwriter Nina Simone. It was recorded in front of a capacity crowd at the Westbury Music Fair in April 7, 1968, just a day after the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King. The track 'Why? (The King Of Love Is Dead)' was written by Simone's bass player Gene Taylor especially for the occasion, and the whole program that night was dedicated in his memory. Elsewhere the set includes classics like 'I Loves You Porgy' and 'Ain't Got No; I Got Life', while 'The Backlash Blues' was penned for Simone by the great Langston Hughes. 

                                                                     In 1969, the album was placed on peak 44 in R&B Albums Chart. The album received an Emmy nomination.

                                                                    No slouch as a songwriter herself, Nina Simone ably picked a variety of compositional classics from the new Rock era for her 1969 LP To Love Somebody. Opening with a beautiful, introspective version of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne”, Simone shows an obvious affinity for social statements with the Byrds’ “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)” and a trio of Dylan standards: “I Shall Be Released”, “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”, plus a dramatic, meditative “The Times They Are A-Changin’”.

                                                                    The album title is taken from the Bee Gees song “To Love Somebody”. Her cover of the song became her second British hit single after “Ain’t Got No-I Got Life”. Also “I Can’t See Nobody” is a song by the Bee Gees. “Revolution” (parts 1 & 2) was Simone’s third subsequent single released in the UK, after “Ain’t Got No-I Got Life” and “To Love Somebody” both became hits. The song was released around the time of the same titled song by The Beatles and, although it has a similar hook (“Don’t you know it’s gonna be - all right”) and structure, most of the lyrics differ.

                                                                      Sixteen Stone is the debut album of British rock band Bush, released in 1994. Widely regarded as the band’s most popular album, it peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and boasted numerous successful singles. “Comedown” and “Glycerine” remain two of the band’s biggest hits to date, each reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. Both tracks also entered the Billboard Hot 100, reaching No. 30 and No. 28, respectively.

                                                                      Sixteen Stone received mostly positive feedback from music critics, calling their sound impressive, not unlike their Seattle Grunge counterparts. In later years Bush would distance themselves from the familiar Grunge sounds with experimental releases such as Deconstructed and The Science Of Things.

                                                                      In April 2014 Rolling Stone placed the album at No. 39 on its “1994: The 40 Best Records From Mainstream Alternative’s Greatest Year” list. A month later, Loudwire placed Sixteen Stone at number eight on its “10 Best Hard Rock Albums of 1994” list. In July 2014, Guitar World placed the album on its “Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994” list.

                                                                        Third Eye Blind is the eponymous debut for the American alternative rock band Third Eye Blind, originally released in 1997. It spawned several singles, including top 10 charting “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Jumper”, and “How’s It Going to Be”. While Third Eye Blind peaked at #25 on the Billboard 200, it spent 104 weeks on the charts. It is the group’s bestselling album, having been certified 6x Platinum.

                                                                        Third Eye Blind is catchier than the average post-grunge album, and that fact alone reveals a lot about the band. Instead of relying on standard, plodding grunge influences, Third Eye Blind draw heavily from the simple hook-laden traditions of classic Arena Rock, which makes the album more immediate. Third Eye Blind is easy on the ears, and its straight-ahead professionalism makes it a pleasurable listen for post-grungers.

                                                                          Marc Moulin (1942 - 2008) was a Belgian musician and journalist. In the early Seventies he was the leader of the jazz-rock group Placebo. Moulin was one of Belgium's jazz legends, making jazz-influenced records for over 30 years. Marc Moulin's three Placebo albums are the 'Holy Grail' for the rare groove crowd, a sector of music fans who love that unique 70s style of cool.

                                                                          Their eponymous third album is glossy, elaborate Benelux jazz-jock which could be labeled Library music as well - having themes that could easily accompany a cult 70's detective series. Its seductive rhythms, combined with tasteful arrangements, make this LP difficult to walk away from.

                                                                          Original copies of Placebo are in short supply and overwhelming demand, making this first ever official reissue a much needed one! Sampled by Pete Rock and Madlib.

                                                                            Hercules (2014) is a riveting adventure blockbuster directed by Brett Ratner and starring Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt and more. It is based on the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars.

                                                                            The film was a pleasant surprise to critics. The chief film critic for Variety wrote: “it’s a grandly staged, solidly entertaining, old-fashioned adventure movie that does something no other Hercules movie has quite done before: it cuts the mythical son of Zeus down to human size (or as human as you can get while still being played by Dwayne Johnson)” and further added that “[Hercules’s] strongest asset is surely Johnson, who continues to foster one of the most affable, guileless screen personas in movies today.”

                                                                            The music epic, driving, classic and cool. All of these adjectives were used to describe the music desired by the creative team making Hercules. Composer Fernando Velázquez rose to the occasion and delivered a fantastic score. The recording sessions took place at Air Studios and Abbey Road Studios in London, with Fernando conducting the tremendous London Philharmonic Orchestra.

                                                                              Korn is the eponymous debut studio album by the American Nu-Metal band Korn. It was released in 1994, right after the band toured with Biohazard and House of Pain. The album’s themes mainly consisted of both drug and child abuse. Korn was well received by music critics. The band stormed the alternative scene virtually overnight, and is said to have established Nu-Metal.

                                                                              Bands like Coal Chamber and Limp Bizkit were inspired by the album’s rage, emphasising similar grooves and song structures, including some Hip Hop elements. Slipknot, Machine Head, and Sepultura were also inspired by the album. The album launched the career of record producer Ross Robinson, who later produced albums such as Three Dollar Bill, Yall by Limp Bizkit and Slipknot’s first two albums.

                                                                              A little more than a year after release, the album went Gold in the United States. The album spawned 4 singles; “Blind”, followed by “Need To”, “Shoots and Ladders” and “Clown”. The album has now sold over 10 million copies worldwide and was never before issued on vinyl.

                                                                                  Alanis Morissette defined the alternative female Pop sound in the ‘90s, with a string of hits under her belt from the million-seller albums Jagged Little Pill (1995) and Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (1998). In 1999 she performed a selection of personal favourites live at MTV Unplugged, with an emphasis on the non-hit material from the Supposed album. Morissette wanted to prove she’s more than ‘just’ the hits she produced, resulting in her daring step to not perform some of her contemporary hits including “Thank U” and “So Pure”. MTV Unplugged shows a multi-faceted artist, fully grown into her own and strong as ever.

                                                                                  Original vinyl copies are extremely hard to find. To celebrate MTV Unplugged’s reissue, we’re pressing this record in a limited first edition of 1000 gold/red marbled copies. Be quick to snag one of these!

His musical legacy has found a place in our hearts and settled into our subconscious, none more so than "Menagerie"’s opening track “Lovely Day”. Every song as smooth as the next, this upbeat album is perfect for the summer to come. There’s a relaxed vibe running through every note - even in the more up-tempo songs - and a consistency here that shows Bill at his best. Now’s the perfect time to add this certified gold record that hasn’t been reissued on vinyl since 1978 to your ever-growing Bill Withers collection!

                                                                                        'Chain Gang Of Love', originally released in August 2003, is The Raveonettes' first full length album after they debuted with the critically acclaimed 'Whip It On' mini album in 2002.

                                                                                        Their sound has often been compared with that of the noisy and distorted Jesus And Mary Chain, while the Velvet Underground and even the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers are never far away either. The most noticeable difference in sound between the debut EP, which had all songs in B-flat minor, and this album is that here all songs are in B-flat major. The result is an album drenched in an uplifting fifties and sixties sound.

                                                                                        Because of this wall of sound you might expect a Phil Spector production, but Sune Rose Wagner himself (one half of the Danish duo which is The Raveonettes) and Richard Gottehrer (producer for a.o. Blondie and The Go-Go's, and founder of Sire Records) were responsible for this remarkable and uplifting release.

                                                                                          Much is made of his older brother Brian's tortured genius, but Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson had his own deeply artistic statement to make - one he made with moody, heartrending beauty and fathomless, soulful introspection on his 1977 masterpiece, "Pacific Ocean Blue". Besides being the first solo album by a member of the Beach Boys, "Pacific Ocean Blue" is a lost classic of 70s West Coast rock, a richly orchestrated opus that swaths the singer-songwriter's delicate and profoundly personal observations in epic, wide-screen arrangements that easily match the drama of the celluloid blockbusters made in his Hollywood back yard. Awash in studio strings and layered, breathy melodies, the piano-sprinkled balladry of tracks like "Thoughts of You" and "End Of The Show" offer glimpses of a more tender, wounded, and never-before-seen side of this most famously free-spirited Beach Boys member; while such ecology-themed meditations as "River Song" (which boasts flashes of hard rock) and the title cut reflect other topics close to the drummer's heart. But despite the album's more serious subject matter, the Beach Boys' good-time pop is still firmly on deck with the horn-pumping R&B of "What's Wrong" and the sunshine lilt of "Rainbows". No wonder Brian Wilson himself is one of "Pacific Ocean Blue"'s biggest fans.

                                                                                            Dusty Groove say: 'Seminal sounds from Placebo - one of the hippest electric groups going on the European scene of the early 70s, thanks to some great keyboards and electronics from the legendary Marc Moulin! Placebo's sound here is a unique approach to funky jazz - one that certainly draws from the electric modes of the American scene, and without any of the jamming elements of other Euro fusion groups - but there's also a touch of rockish inflection at points too - especially in the way the rhythms have a tightly pulsating groove. There's none of the indulgence of prog, but there's definitely a lineage going on somewhere in the mix too - and in addition to Moulin's keyboards, the group also features great horns from Nick Fissette, Alex Socrier, and Richard Rousselet.' I agree with them.

                                                                                            For this 2010 release ALL the songs from the cult classic 1973 soundtrack are included. Many years this was a holy grail among soundtrack aficionados, this release has been prepared from recently discovered master tapes with a clarity and presence that gives the late Paul Giovanni's haunting music the showcase it has so long deserved. This is definitely the stuff that myths are made of! Containing exclusive material from the later, longer version of the film, including the song "Gently Johnny", which was not available on early LP issues.

                                                                                            Paul Giovanni, together with Magnet, has created a mysterious and sinister world that has a life of it's own nearly 30 years after the film's release - flutes, lyres, harmonicas, and guitars, mixed in with original and traditional folk material makes each song totally different, summing up the atmosphere of the movie brilliantly! The Wicker Man is a stunning soundtrack which all you movie buffs and traditional British folk music fans are advised to snap up for your collection!

                                                                                            With its 40th Anniversary just about to happen, and the film version about to go in cinemas once more, Music On Vinyl have decided to repress The Wicker Man LP edition again. This is a straight repress of 500 copies on black vinyl.

                                                                                            For this 2013 release ALL the songs from the film are included. Containing exclusive material from the later, longer version of the film, and including the song "Gently Johnny". This release has been prepared from the original stereo master tapes.

                                                                                            What Color Is Love - 180g Vinyl Edition

                                                                                            Terry Callier's 'What Color Is Love' (1973) is an essential soul-jazz album that should belong in anyone's record collection. This record was produced by Charles Stepney, whose work with Cadet / Chess records, Rotary Connection and Earth, Wind & Fire earned him popular acclaim. Filled with soul, funk, rock, folk, jazz, and even classical influences, vocalist Callier can be heard on this album to the most intriguing heights.

                                                                                            "Dancing Girl" opens the album with Stepney's majestic orchestration. Songs like "What Color Is Love" and "Ho Tsing Mee", an elegant anti-war prayer of confusion, somehow avoid clichés or take them to another level.

                                                                                            Callier's passionate voice captures the sweeping drama of the human condition. A lost romantic amid "concrete frond yards," this album is a must-have for any music connoisseur.

                                                                                            Recorded in New York in 1967, 'Silk & Soul' is Nina Simone's second album for RCA. Despite arrangements that don't always best suit her voice, this album does contain classics "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free", which would become a Civil Rights anthem and "It Be's That Way Sometimes", written by her brother Sam Waymon. "The Turning Point"' is a song that seems to be about a child making a new friend, but turns out to question the origins of racism.

                                                                                            Ms Simone also takes on Dusty Springfield by covering "The Look Of Love", which was originally featured in the 1966 James Bond spoof Casino Royale. She's greatly inspired by Mozart in the fugue-like "Consummation".

                                                                                            As the sleeve notes on this 1967 LP say, 'Simone is neither all jazz nor all pop; neither all soul or all R&B. She is neither all folk nor all folk protest; neither poetess or balladeer. She is simply Nina Simone, a voice in this wilderness of modernity and industrialized society which cries out to be heard'.
