St. Germain

Tourist (20th Anniversary Travel Versions

    When first released back in 2000, Tourist was a global success, selling over four million albums worldwide. It was Ludovic Navarre’s (aka. St Germain) third studio album which really transformed his career into superstardom; combining elements of house and nu jazz to produce an impeccable album to chill out to. The album continues to be hugely popular to this day, with the critically acclaimed Jorja Smith doing a cover of Rose rouge earlier this year.

    To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his Tourist album, Ludovic Navarre aka St Germain has invited UK, South Africa, USA, Reunion Island and France producers, DJs and remixers with various musical inspirations, from Deep House to Afro House and Chicago House.

    He declares: “I would like to thank all the people I asked to travel through their favorite Tourist album track. Some of them worked on my last Africa-in- spired album in 2015, like my dear friend Atjazz, who helped me a lot on this new project, and also Terry Laird Dj Deep and Traumer. I don’t have to introduce highly respected newcomers such as Nightmares On Wax , Jovonn, Ron Trent, Black Motion, Osunlade and Jullian Gomes. I truly enjoy their passion for music, their personality and musical integrity. I know they’ve got soul!”


    Joni Mitchell

    Live At Canterbury House - 1967

      'Live at Canterbury House - 1967' includes Mitchell's previously unreleased, entire three-set performance from October 27, 1967.

      Looking back, Mitchell reflects on her early label of “folk singer”: “The early stuff, I shouldn’t be such a snob against it. A lot of these songs, I just lost them. They fell away. They only exist in these recordings. For so long I rebelled against the term, ‘I was never a folk-singer.’ I would get pissed off if they put that label on me. I didn’t think it was a good description of what I was. And then I listened and…it was beautiful. It made me forgive my beginnings. And I had this realization…I was a folk singer!”

      Joni Mitchell

      Early Joni - 1963

        'Early Joni - 1963' is Joni’s earliest-known previously unreleased recording where a 19-year-old Mitchell performs at CFQC AM, a radio station in her hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

        Like several of Mitchell’s past albums, the cover for EARLY JONI features a self-portrait and marks her first new art in many years.

        Travis

        10 Songs

          At various points along the trajectory between then and now, Travis have sold millions of albums (just under three million of The Man Who in the UK alone); they’ve been the subject of an award-winning feature length documentary (Almost Fashionable) and Fran has elicited acclaim from Paul McCartney, Elton John and Graham Nash – all songwriters whose ability to divine a timeless melody out of thin air has sustained them through the decades.

          ’10 Songs’ is an album that holds you in its own emotional microclimate at the outset and keeps you there. It’s also a grown-up record. ’10 Songs’ is a record about the way life comes at love and what love does to weather those challenges. “This is no rehearsal/This is the take,” sings Fran at the beginning of Waving At The Window, over an insistent piano hook, “Promises you once kept/Are going to break

          Every track on this album carries an even load. No passengers here. Nowhere to hide. “I write songs in an antiquated way,” explains their creator, “Sitting at the bottom of the bed, ‘pouring my simple sorrow to the sound hole and my knee’, as Joni Mitchell put it.” As a songwriter based in L.A., Fran Healy doesn’t need anyone to tell him this is no longer how it’s done. It’s far from uncommon for the credits on successful modern pop songs to feature upwards of ten writers. Hits by committee. “It’s fine,” notes Fran, “Personally though, I’ll take ten songs written by one person over one song written by ten people. And if I feel that way, then surely someone else must do too.”

            Electronic

            Electronic

              Electronic are proud to present the release of their self-titled album. Pressed on 180g black vinyl, this reissue features the black cover on vinyl for the very first time, which was first used on the CD version released in 1994.

              Electronic were the coming together of Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr in 1987. This was the year of the sudden and wholly unexpected demise of The Smiths, who imploded in July after Marr left the group. Two months later, midway through a North American tour, Bernard Sumner shocked his bandmates by announcing that he planned to take time out from New Order.

              Marr and Sumner had met in 1984 when Marr added guitar to Atom Rock by Quando Quango, an electro-dance track co-produced by Sumner. Marr sums up their coming together for Electronic; ‘We were two musicians who wanted to get away from the suffocating politics of the band. At the same time, it was OK for duos and DJs and non-groups to make records, and that really appealed to Bernard and me.”

              The project was a joyous Venn Diagram of Sumner and Marr’s influences. Although ostensibly coming from different disciplines, the experimental dance-pop of New Order and the fullbodied jangle of The Smiths, their common interests were many: dance music, a good tune and pushing musical boundaries. At the time of release (May 1991), ‘Electronic’ was met with huge acclaim and stands up as one of the most important electronica albums of all time.



              Stiff Little Fingers

              Inflammable Material - Vinyl Reissue

                Stiff Little Fingers are proud to release Inflammable Material. Originally released in 1979, this seminal record, printed on black vinyl, explores themes of teenage boredom and sectarian violence with an underlying insight into Northern Irish life during the peak of the tensions.

                Their punk rock aesthetic is authentic, with raw lyricism and harsh instrumentation. Containing the anthemic track ‘Alternative Ulster’, Stiff Little Fingers promote the ‘grab it and change it’ narrative.

                David Bowie

                Loving The Alien 1983 - 1988 (BOX SET)

                  The follow-up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed DAVID BOWIE ‘FIVE YEARS (1969 – 1973)’ and DAVID BOWIE ‘A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN (1977 – 1982)’ will be released on 12th October.

                  The box contains newly remastered versions of David’s most commercially successful period ‘LET’S DANCE’, ‘TONIGHT’, ‘NEVER LET ME DOWN (ORIGINAL and 2018 VERSIONS)’, the live album ‘GLASS SPIDER (Live Montreal ’87)’, the previously unreleased ‘SERIOUS MOONLIGHT’ live album, a collection of original remixes entitled ‘DANCE’ and the non-album / alternate version / b-sides and soundtrack music compilation RE:CALL 4.

                  The highlight of this latest box is the brand new production of the 1987 album ‘NEVER LET ME DOWN’ by Bowie producer / engineer Mario McNulty with new instrumentation by Bowie collaborators Reeves Gabrels (guitar), David Torn (guitar), Sterling Campbell (drums), Tim Lefebvre (bass) as well as string quartet with arrangements by Nico Muhly and a guest cameo by Laurie Anderson on ‘Shining Star (Makin’ My Love)’.
                  The seeds of this new reimagining of the albums were first sown in 2008 when David asked Mario McNulty to remix the track ‘Time Will Crawl’ and record new drums by longtime Bowie drummer, Sterling Campbell along with strings. The track was issued on the iSelect compilation to much acclaim, and in the notes, for that record, David remarked ‘Oh, to redo the rest of that album’.
                  The new re-workings have revealed ‘Never Let Me Down’ as a very strong collection of songs with a dark thematic thread running through them. Fans listening to ‘NEVER LET ME DOWN (2018)’ would be forgiven for thinking that they were listening to a brand new ‘lost’ Bowie record.

                  Also in each box is the never before released ‘SERIOUS MOONLIGHT’ live album recorded in Montreal in 1983. Originally mixed at the time by Bob Clearmountain, the double album captures Bowie on what at that time was his most successful tour. The artwork features shots taken by photographer Denis O’Regan.

                  Exclusive to each box is ‘RE:CALL 4’ and ‘DANCE’. The former a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles, album edits, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks such as Labyrinth, Absolute Beginners and When The Wind Blows. ‘DANCE’ features 12 contemporaneous remixes some of which are appearing on CD and vinyl for the first time and is named after an unreleased Bowie remix album that was originally slated for release in November 1985.

                  The box set’s accompanying 84 page book features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Denis O’Regan, Greg Gorman, Herb Ritts and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producers/engineers Nile Rodgers, Hugh Padgham, Mario McNulty and Justin Shirley-Smith.

                  This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016. The nine track, 35-minute album features a previously unreleased home studio cassette recording of Prince at his piano captured in 1983.

                  The private rehearsal provides a rare, intimate glimpse into Prince’s creative process as he worked through songs which include “17 Days” and “Purple Rain” (neither of which would be released until 1984), a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You”, “Strange Relationship” (not released until 1987 on his critically acclaimed Sign O’ The Times album), and “International Lover”.

                  The album also includes a rare recording of the 19th Century spiritual “Mary Don’t You Weep” which was used to spine-tingling effect during the end credits of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman in theatres August 2018.

                  says: There's never really been any doubt about Prince's genius, but this previously unreleased set sees the Purple legend sweep through a handful of his many many classics, along with a couple of stunning covers, arranged/improvised for piano and voice. Intimate, expressive and unfeasibly funky, this is pretty much as good as it gets.

                    Neil Young will open his archive and release Hitchhiker, an unreleased new studio album. The 10-track acoustic solo album was recorded in Malibu, CA at Indigo Studio in 1976. The original session was produced by Young’s long-time studio collaborator David Briggs.

                    Recorded between Zuma and American Stars and Bars as a solo album in a single session, the resultant performances are truly breathtaking and passionate. The simplicity of a single voice and guitar captured here is as pure and powerful as it gets, with only Young, Briggs and actor Dean Stockwell in the room at the time of recording. A few of the songs would not appear on vinyl until years later. Some have never been heard, included in the original sessions for Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s Dume, another unreleased record of original sessions that yielded the classic album, Zuma. When the Hitchhiker album was recorded, none of the included songs had ever been released and many of the performances of the songs were the first ever. This is truly an album of original performances


                    Green Day

                    Revolution Radio

                    Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, ‘Revolution Radio’ is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day's fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless -- solidifying the band's reign as one of the leading voices in rock music. The first single, ‘Bang Bang’, released today and inspired by recent events, marks a welcome return from a band with more to say than ever.

                    "Of course the world has lost its collective mind… and me, Mike and Tré are lost souls too,” said Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. “Revolution Radio is a movement for lost souls to come together… dance together… sing together... and most of all, find each other. That's what the spirit of Green Day has been about since day one."

                          There was so much excitement and expectation around The Smiths' debut in early 1984. They were only two singles in but had already made a massive media splash with Morrissey's hilariously arrogant interviews. There'd been BBC Sessions and fans already knew all the words, riotously passionate gigs and much talk of the band coming to SAVE POP MUSIC from plastic, vacuous Eighties glitz; an Us and Them climate where you were either a disciple or not! In the midst of all this the actual record got lost somewhat, but three quarters of it is still outstanding. Nowhere else will you find "Miserable Lie", "I Don't Owe You Anything", "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle" or "Suffer Little Children", but in "Reel Around the Fountain", "Hand in Glove", "Still Ill" and "What Difference does it Make" the band crafted classics that would last forever.

                          The Smiths

                          Rank - Remastered

                            This was a live album recorded in London on "The Queen Is Dead" tour, around the time that the "Ask" single was released in the autumn of 1986. The rockier version of that song here makes amends for the jangle-lite softness of the original. Elsewhere, Elvis's "His Latest Flame" segues into "Rusholme Ruffians" and "What She Said" spills into the outro of "Rubber Ring". Oddities aside, this album captures The Smiths during the 6 months when Craig Gannon was in the band as an extra guitarist. This allowed Johnny Marr to rock out and relax: something you wouldn't really associate The Smiths with. But here's the proof. Live, they were an explosion, a raucous celebration, and certainly (whisper it: FUN!) There was very little time for navel-gazing at a Smiths gig. This album captures that. With some aplomb. Rock on!

                            Only a year after their debut, 1985's follow-up was a huge leap forward for The Smiths. Soundwise, definitely: tighter, louder, clearer, more rocking, and in opener "The Headmaster Ritual", and weepie "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" they had two more top draw classics to add to their canon. There were different types of song on display here, whether it's the Elvis-cribbing, super atmospheric, cyclical scene setter of "Rusholme Ruffians", the rock overloaded hurtle of "What She Said" or the churning, jarring horror of the title track, here was a completely unique band expanding their template.

                            The Smiths

                            Hatful Of Hollow - Remastered

                              You'll know that The Smiths were prolific: all 4 of their proper albums were released in successive calendar years. But one thing that might have got lost with time is just how many non-album singles (with brand new b-sides too) they released. A mere month after each of their first 3 albums came out, there was a one-off single already heralding the new! With "Hatful Of Hollow" (Autumn 1984) there had been 2 twelve-inches (5 brand new tracks) since the debut album in March and the idea was to put these and the much loved BBC Sessions songs on one cheaply priced record. As some fans (and Morrissey too) had misgivings about the production of the debut, this was a good way to let people hear what many consider to be better versions. One of these songs was the incredible "This Night Has Opened My Eyes" which was never properly recorded by the band and is only available on this disc.

                              says: The dream has gone but the music is real!!

                              Whilst nearly all of The Smiths themselves cite this as their favourite album, in reality it couldn't quite match the splendour and indeed songs, of "The Queen Is Dead". It has a subdued, more mysterious and rock-classicist flavour and again introduces song types not to be found elsewhere: they seldom repeated themselves The Smiths. The enormo anthem here is the heartrending, absolutely beautiful "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me", but the whole record flows in an utterly compelling way. There's only one weakish track ("Death At One's Elbow" is intentionally daft and trashy) and when that's followed by the gorgeous "I Won't Share You" well you'd be a fool to complain. This was their final album together. The spell was broken. The dream was over!

                              The World Won't Listen - Remastered

                                This is 1987's sibling to 84's "Hatful Of Hollow" with 14 tracks from non-album singles compiled with one brand new song. "You just Haven't Earnt It Yet, Baby" was another sparkling jangler that was pressed as a single then pulled, whilst the other 2 curios are a new and superior version of "Stretch Out And Wait" and the original, foggier mix of "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" which has much more charm (recorded in Chorlton!) than the "Queen Is Dead" version. Album singles are still featured on this comp. though, and that diluted its impact somewhat rendering "TWWL" not quite as pure an artistic statement as its sister record. Hey: still superb though!

                                Esser's remarkable first foray into the world of the longplayer with "Braveface" is a looking like a step closer to owning one of this years most rewarding and eclectic debut albums. Mixing ska-influenced electro pop with wry and interesting lyrics, this is a confident and fun record from a multi-talented performer. Includes the single "Satisfied".

                                This album is a compilation released after Ian Curtis's death and it's an odds'n'sods affair featuring outtakes, live tracks and b-sides. The unreleased songs are of their early, punkish variety: edgy, fractured and intense. But it's the live album which makes this special. This is the band's last ever gig at Birmingham University and whilst there's some punkish mistakes and wonky sound, Joy Division's power is undeniable. This is the only place you can hear their version of what would become New Order's debut (and greatest?) single, too: "Ceremony", though hindered by a dozy soundman, proves that this band were going to mix awesome rock songs with the more refined splendour of "Closer's" new, calm, keyboard-ghostliness. Their scope was breathtaking. But two weeks later, Ian Curtis was dead.
