The Place And The Time+ Vinyl Only Bonus Track
Despite a myriad of obstacles, Moby Grape managed to persevere and create a potent and enduring body of recorded work, recording four albums during its original 1967-1969 lifespan. While 1967's Moby Grape is widely acknowledged as a classic and one of rock's greatest debut albums, the subsequent Wow, Moby Grape '69 and Truly Fine Citizen are all underrated gems.
It's a measure of the musicians' abundance of talent and creativity that, despite the multiple roadblocks that they confronted, Moby Grape recorded prolifically and cut a wealth of originally unreleased material. The Place and the Time offers a scintillating assortment of rare tracks cut during the band's heady 1967-1968 heyday and it is the first time any of these tracks have appeared on vinyl! Encompassing audition recordings, album outtakes, alternative versions, live material and more, the recordings offer a powerful testament to the remarkable rapport that made the band such a unique musical force. The fact that music this stunning and originally sat on the shelf for so long is just another in the litany of injustices that haunt the Moby Grape story. Fortunately, the band's majestic recorded legacy has outlasted the bad luck. The music remains as fresh and inspiring as ever, and the vintage material featured in this collection constitutes a crucial addition to Moby Grape's already monumental body of work.1.

Gilbert O'Sullivan (Pre-Order)Release Date: August 10, 2018*
Gilbert O'Sullivan's unique blend of melodic craftsmanship, witty wordplay, topical acuity and surrealist humor has given him an enduring and endearing career.
Now recognized as one of our great singer-songwriters, he's been championed in recent years by everyone from Morrissey to Paul Weller, from Difford & Tilbrook to Neil Diamond. There's a case for him being our own Randy Newman or Harry Nilsson. Certainly, Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Paolo Nutini, Laura Marling, Tom Jones, Paul McCartney) who produces his new album "Gilbert O'Sullivan", is a clued-up enthusiast. "I've been a fan of Gilbert's for years," he says. "He's a true original."
Gilbert's 19th studio album since his 1971 debut "Himself" feels in some ways a kindred spirit to that record, which yielded his first hit "Nothing Rhymed". It's organic, almost live feel is encouraged by Johns and the songs sail on the perennial O'Sullivan strengths of evocative tunes and wry insight. Yet while there are nods to nostalgia, as in the centerpiece "Dansette Dreams And 45s", the deft, droll observations on today's world remain eagle-eyed.
As Gilbert says, "The reason I've never lost the joy of song-writing is because you never know where something will lead," he says. "Once you get into writing a song, you can't resist taking it that little bit further "
In the zone again, naturally. Will Gilbert O'Sullivan surprise and intrigue you on this new album? He will.
