    Disraeli Gears (Awaiting Repress)

    Featuring two of Cream's best-known songs, 'Strange Brew' and 'Sunshine Of Your Love', according to Q magazine, the second album from the original super-group of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker "was a huge, Top 5 success on both sides of the Atlantic, transforming the shape of rock music, which still draws deeply on its power-trio innovations". Moving away from their blues roots to a more psychedelic sound typical of the times, Mojo magazine reckoned, "with its perfect Martin Sharp sleeve and disciplined performances, Disraeli Gears was always Cream's best record. It remains so." Sharp also contributed lyrics to one of the album's other classics, 'Tales Of Brave Ulysses'. Recorded in New York, 'Disraeli Gears' was Cream's breakthrough in America, cementing their superstar status.

    Ten Years After

    A Premium RTI Pressing, From The Original U.K. Mono Masters

    Ten Years After's self-titled debut hit the British blues scene with the subtlety and precision of a wrecking ball in 1967, serving notice that what had once been confined to steamy haunts in London was now there for the world to hear. And by the time the band electrified half a million hippies at Woodstock two years later, the world was roaring its approval. Cut live with vocals overdubbed later, Ten Years After is an impressive debut, showing off a tight band steeped not only in blues, but rockabilly, jazz, folk and even occasionally psychedelia. They rival Cream on a powerful cover of "Spoonful," which sports a heavy rhythm drive also evident on their extended jam version of "Help Me" that builds and builds to stratospheric heights. The latter allows Alvin Lee to cut loose with the fast licks for which he would become best known, but he was also capable of subtler, more impressionistic soloing on a stellar remake of the Blues Project's "I Can't Keep From Crying, Sometimes." If those three aren't enough evidence of the band's ability, then a spruced-up "I Want to Know," first done by Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse on the legendary What's Shakin' comp (also reissued by Sundazed), certainly seals the deal. But even at this early stage, Ten Years After was no cover act - throwing originals like the Robert Johnson-inspired "Love Until I Die," the country acoustic blues of "Don't Want You Woman" and the swingin' boogie of "Feel It for Me" into the mix. It was no one-man show, either - as organist Chick Churchill takes the lead on "Adventures of a Young Organ" and buttresses "Losing the Dogs" with some rollicking Jerry Lee Lewis piano. And beneath it all, there was the metronomic telepathy of the Ric Lee/Leo Lyons rhythm section. The best way to hear this classic album is in its punchier mono mix, available on vinyl for the first time in 50 years and faithfully packaged with all of the original iridescent psychedelic cover art intact.

    Now Sundazed proudly presents the searing guitar of Alvin Lee & Chick Churchill's haunting organ textures as they were meant to be heard, from the original U.K. MONO masters and pressed on premium RTI vinyl!

    Ice Cream Man

    Master P took his music to a new level of quality on Ice Cream Man, which is his first to feature the production stable known as Beats by the Pound (i.e., KLC, Mo B. Dick, DJ Daryl, Carlos Stephens, Ken Franklin, Craig B). Themes of drugs, violence, and ghetto life are prevalent and well exploited. Ice Cream Man was Master P's best-selling album to date, and it created a significant buzz in the hardcore rap underground, setting the stage for his chart-topping follow-up, Ghetto D (1997).

    Don't Look Around and Crossroader. Plus even more Mountain classics are
    included like Tanuta, The Animal Trainer And The Toad and The Boys In The
    Band.


    The hard rocking progressive sound of Mountain is also highlighted
    with massive hits like their definitive interpretation of Jack Bruce & Pete
    Brown's Theme For An Imaginary Western and their stellar tribute to the
    Woodstock nation with the legendary For Yasgur's Farm.


    The music of Mountain has made them one of the most loved bands
    of all time. Even to this day, their concerts are important events worldwide,
    their albums and songs are of legendary proportion, and the undying energy
    between each of its individual members is second to no one.

    Soul Deep

    Soul Deep is an essential compilation of The Box Tops' best tracks. Hailing from 1960's Memphis, The Box Tops are best known for the hits The Letter, Cry Like a Baby and Soul Deep, and are considered a major blue-eyed Soul group of the period.


    They performed a mixture of current Soul music songs by artists such as James & Bobby Purify and Clifford Curry, Pop tunes such as A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum, and songs written by their producers, Dan Penn, Spooner Oldham, and Chips Moman.


    Their records are prime examples of the styles made popular by Moman and Penn at American Sound Studio in Memphis. Many of their lesser known Top 40 hits, including Neon Rainbow, I Met Her in Church, and Sweet Cream Ladies, Forward March, are considered minor classics.

    Tear Down The Walls

    The rumbling baritone of Fred Neil and Vince Martins earthy tenor... Its a vocal blend every bit as impressive as the great duos in music history: the Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel with a Greenwich Village twist, of course. Put Neil and Martin, a pair of New York City folkie legends-in-the-making, into a recording studio with a young, pre-Spoonful John Sebastian on harmonica and Felix Pappalardi (later to produce Cream and the Youngbloods) on guitarron (an acoustic Mexican bass guitar) and magic is inevitable. This, of course, is Fred Neil in 1964, well before he just walked away from the folk scene and split for Florida and premature retirement in 1971, to remain an enigma until his recent death. Every recording by this compelling, monstrously talented singer/songwriter should be cherished like spun gold. From the original Elektra Records stereo master, Tear Down the Walls is one of Neils first studio sessions and is undeniably also one of his best.

    Hot Wax

    White/blue swirled vinyl!


    Grant Hart's first solo album of the 21st century is one of the best things he has ever done. The former Husker Du drummer and co-songwriter worked with the diverse cast of musicians from Godspeed You Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion on this new LP, Hot Wax, recorded in Montreal and Minneapolis. Grant on some of the some of the songs: the song Narcissus, Narcissus is my first attempt at combining ancient Greek mythology and American rock-a-billy. By merging those influences with an ice cream truck atmosphere I think I have found a style that defines this period of my career. You're the Reflection of the Moon on the Water is one of the most organic rock and roll songs that I have ever written. It's style owes a lot to my devotion for patti smith. It was inspired by a comment made by a monk during the selection process to find the next Panchen Lhama, who said of one candidate, he is the reflection of the moon on the water but he is not the moon.

    The Good Earth

    Another piece of topical hard rock from Manfred Mann's Earth Band and, as before, listenable even to those without a serious bone in their bodies, by virtue of the playing. Moving between hard rock and British blues influences (with a special debt to Cream on the opening cut, Give Me the Good Earth) and progressive rock, the quartet cuts a mean swathe across the sonic landscape, between Mick Rogers' soaring guitar solos and Manfred Mann's inimitable synthesizer work. When these guys start reaching, as on Earth Hymn, that's when their best musical instincts take hold, and the results are always worth hearing. There's stuff here that King Crimson or Be Bop Deluxe wouldn't have been ashamed to have had on any of their albums; indeed, the instrumental Sky High is worth the price of admission by itself as a showcase for the talents of all four players as both hard rock musicians and an art rock ensemble. They even manage to work in elements of folk-rock, and its attendant lyricism, on the album, by way of the Christopher Logue-based Be Not Too Hard (which was also recorded, in a different adaptation, by Joan Baez about seven years earlier). And Earth Hymn, Pt. 2 closes out the album in grand style, once again pushing the band to the edge of their unique brand of progressive/hard rock.

    This Is Christmas

    Rather than a do a rehash of many of the obvious traditional tunes that fill special holiday albums by contemporary performers, maestro Luther Vandross opted for the task of creating no fewer than 7 of the 10 tracks included on his 1995 Christmas release. The result is an album that demonstrates why Vandross is still considered the preeminent black male vocalist of close to two decades: as on typical Vandross recordings, the production is crisp and strong and the vocals are flawless.


    As usual, he employs the cream of musicians and background vocalists (including the inimitable Cissy Houston and Darlene Love, who is featured on the Motown-like duet I Listen to the Bells)--the perfect backdrop for Vandross's distinctive sound, exemplified on the standout title track. The Mistle Toe Jam has the party-like feel of Vandross sides like Bad Boy and the more recent Nights in Harlem, while Every Year, Every Christmas (cowritten with Richard Marx) is a soulful slow jam.


    A surprising reading of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic My Favorite Things shows that if Vandross ever chose to, he could easily do a fine album of jazz standards, while O Come All Ye Faithful (featuring an all-star choir that includes Valerie Simpson) is given the album's most traditional reading. Standouts include the gorgeous Please Come Home for Christmas and the almost funky A Kiss for Christmas. Easily one of the best Christmas albums around. --David Nathan

    Skeleton Soul

    Jack Sandham and Wednesday Lyle have been playing together as Cowbell since late 2009 when they got together for a late night jam session and things took off from there. Three 7" singles followed over the next 18 months and they signed to Damaged Goods in 2012. Two years on from their debut album Beat Stampede, the rockin' duo branch out into a more spooky atmospheric sound across the 11 tracks on the new album. There's a definite dark, New Orleans R&B vibe to Skeleton Soul.


    Kicking off with the spaghetti western intro of the album's opening track, 'Cry Wolf' the duo cover plenty of new ground while retaining the urgency and excitement of their earlier work. Though what makes this new album so special is the evocative mood the band created with Ed Deegan at Gizzard Studio. Imagine Dr. John meets the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The sound is still a stripped down affair, though this time round the drum 'n' guitar bones are fleshed out with a few enhancing overdubs such as the Doors-esque spiky psychedelic organ on 'She's All Over You', and some soulful saxophone on the funky, strutting 'Dirt'.


    The band show they're equally adept at intimate ballads with 'Darkness In Your Heart', perhaps the best song Richard Hawley never wrote. Wednesday takes the lead vocal on 'Heart On The Line' a track which recalls the cream of '60s girl singers such as Sandie, Dusty et al. Fans of the group's earlier sound will not be disappointed either, there's still the bone-shaking garage blues numbers such as 'Oh Yolande' and 'Baby It's Your Love' along with the swampy mambo-blues groove of 'The Fear'. Imagine a band with the guitar twang of The Cramps over jungle-tribal drums, covering The Zombies and you're somewhere close.

    Good Thing

    80's Icon - Paul Young Returns With His First Album In 20 years - Good Thing


    Paul remembered for his Billboard Top 10 Hit - Everytime You Go Away, his Gold selling album 'The Secret Of Association' & performance at Live Aid. He was one of the biggest stars of the era, on both sides of the Atlantic.


    Executive producer and partner in the 'Good Thing' project is world renowned Arthur Baker, best known for his work with hip hop artists like Afrika Bambaataa & Planet Patrol, crossover pop acts New Order and the Pet Shop Boys, here he channels some of his later work with Al Green. The album is a collection of classic soul covers and sees Paul return to the soulful roots sound that catapulted him to worldwide fame.


    Stemming from Memphis soul as a starting point; which is why Stax Records (a major factor in the creation of Southern and Memphis Soul) feature so heavily on this new album. From Al Green's 'L-O-V-E', The Staple Singer's 'Touch A Hand, Make A Friend' and Syl Johnson's 'Back For A Taste Of Your Love', & Jonnie Taylor's 'I Believe In You' - 'Good Thing' is, in Paul's opinion, the cream of soul in one collection:


    "This album is a labor of love, my soulful dream realized for everyone to now share," states Paul. "I've carefully selected and re-recorded some of the most beautiful, iconic and rare soul tracks of all time and I hope people enjoy this album as much as I've loved creating it."

    Instrumentals

    Remastered Double LP With 12-Page Booklet


    Includes Liner Notes By Tim Lawrence, Ernie Brooks And Arthur Russell


    All Material Previously Released On The Audika CD Compilation First Thought Best Thought


    Before Disco, and before the transcendent echoes, Arthur wanted to be a composer.


    His journey began in 1972, leaving home in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Heading west to Northern California, Arthur studied Indian classical composition at the Ali Akbar Khan College of Music followed by western orchestral music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, before ending two years later in New York at the Manhattan School of Music.


    Traversing the popular and the serious, Arthur composed "Instrumentals" in 1974, inspired by the photography of his Buddhist teacher, Yuko Nonomura, as Arthur described, "I was awakened, or re-awakened to the bright-sound and magical qualities of the bubblegum and easy-listening currents in American popular music".


    Initially intended to be performed in one 48 hour cycle, "Instrumentals" was in fact only performed in excerpts a handful of times as a work in progress.


    The legendary performances captured live in New York at The Kitchen (1975 and 1978) and Franklin St. Arts Center (1977) feature the cream of that eras downtown new music scene including Ernie Brooks, Rhys Chatham, Julius Eastman, Jon Gibson, Peter Gordon, Garrett List, Andy Paley, Bill Ruyle, Dave Van Tieghem, and Peter Zummo.


    Pitchfork lauded "Instrumentals" Vol. 1 as a masterpiece and one of Arthur's "greatest achievements". Americana touching on Copeland, Ives, and maybe even Brian Wilson. "Instrumentals" Vol. 2 is a moving, deeply pastoral work performed by the CETA Orchestra and conducted by Julius Eastman.


    Also included are two of Arthur's most elusive compositions, Reach One, and Sketch For "Face Of Helen". Recorded live in 1975 at Phill Niblock's Experimental Intermedia Foundation, Reach One is a minimal, hypnotic ambient soundscape written and performed for two Fender Rhodes pianos. Sketch For "Face Of Helen" was inspired by Arthur's work with friend and composer Arnold Dreyblatt, recorded with an electronic tone generator, keyboard and ambient recordings of a rumbling tugboat from the Hudson River.


    For this remastered vinyl edition, a key part of Arthur's musical life has been restored. The sparkling, multidimensional results take the listener closer to Arthur's coast-to-coast journey: his iconoclastic determination to combine pop and art music; and his desire to make music that would resonate in the present and, ultimately, across time.

    Balmorhea


    ...an exemplary experiment in restraint, lush with
    a slow-burning, wordless, and ambient Americana
    that manages to captivate while avoiding the
    histrionics of its post-rock forebears.
    - THE NEW YORKER


    ...they create minimalist, cinematic music that
    combines modern, experimental acoustic sounds
    with classical qualities.
    - NPR


    This - not steak finger baskets or soft-serve ice
    cream - is what you should like about Texas.
    - The ONION / A.V. CLUB


    Balmorhea flashes brilliance only to highlight a
    slow-burning constancy that's at the core of one
    of the year's early slow wonders.
    - PITCHFORK


    For the past eight years the duo of Rob Lowe and Michael Muller have nurtured and refined
    their creative partnership as the core members of the band Balmorhea. Though their first
    album on Western Vinyl Rivers Arms (2008) garnered some remarkable press, their
    self-titled debut, recorded in 2006 and released in 2007 best captures the duo's unique
    magic as it first blossomed. With no label, distributor, manager, publicist, or booking agent
    the duo quietly self-released their first recordings and started playing live shows. Now,
    seven years later Western Vinyl is honored to have the opportunity reissue the band's
    self-titled album, and make it available on vinyl for the first time ever.


    In preparation for this special reissue, the audio was lovingly remastered, drawing out
    even more of the nuances magnifying the sounds of Muller and Lowe's fingers on the
    instruments, and teasing out the textures that set these recordings apart from the rest of
    their catalog. Simple and sincere, these songs and ambient sounds the duo captured in
    these recordings are strangely inviting. Throughout the album the distant sounds of Texas
    grackles, the warm summer rain, the steady rhythm of crickets chirping, and creaking
    wooden stools, all seeping in to cradle the notes in a restrained din of primordial wonder.


    It's hard to imagine Western Vinyl without Balmorhea. After our fateful meeting in 2007,
    we forged a deep and lasting relationship we're all grateful for. We met at an Austin performance on the eve of their first US tour in support of their recently self-released debut
    album. Their show that night was one of the most powerful performances I'd ever seen,
    and as I looked around the room, it was apparent that I wasn't alone. With the help of a
    cellist the group briefly transformed the dingy lounge into a vibrant pulsing cell. I had
    experienced deeply moving shows before, but the ecstatic emotions they conjured were
    new to me. Calling it electrifying, might sound clichÉ, but as the hair on my arms and legs
    stood at attention, my eyes squinted a bit with concentration, and my head cocked to the
    right, the electricity that passed over me felt very real. Over the next few years I had the
    pleasure of experiencing dozens of Balmorhea shows, each with a slightly different story
    to tell. - Brian Sampson, Western Vinyl

    Valleys Of Neptune

    Jimi Hendrix Valleys Of Neptune on Audiophile-Quality 180g 2LP Set!


    12 Previously Unreleased, Fully Realized Jimi Hendrix Studio Recordings Available for the First Time Ever!


    Cut from the Analog Masters by Legendary Engineer George Marino at Sterling Sound and Pressed on 180-gram Vinyl at RTI!


    The Hendrix Family is Committed to Bringing you the Best Sound Quality Possible: Do Not Miss This Collection!


    Set Joins Exquisitely Remastered Versions of Are You Experienced?, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland, and First Rays of the New Rising Sun!


    The already insurmountable legacy of the greatest, most advanced rock guitarist to ever play a note just got better. Valleys Of Neptune, a newly curated album of 12 fully realized Jimi Hendrix studio recordings, contains more than 60 minutes of music never commercially available on any Hendrix album. Centered around tracks recorded during a pivotal and turbulent four-month period in 1969, Valleys Of Neptune unveils the original Jimi Hendrix Experience's final studio recordings for the very first time. Just as importantly, no expense has been spared in making sure this monumental release sounds as good as humanly possible. Mastered from the original analog tapes, cut by legendary engineer George Marino on upgraded equipment at Sterling Sound, and pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl at RTI, this 2LP set is a sonic knockout on par with the very best audiophile recordings. It's no wonder that this release spearheads Legacy Recordings' unprecented 2010 Jimi Hendrix Catalog Project of reissues and new releases from the greatest guitar player in history. Albums don't get more essential than this.


    Valleys Of Neptune provides a fundamental, compelling, and largely unseen view of what Jimi Hendrix was doing in the critical period between the release of Electric Ladyland in October of 1968 and the 1970 opening of his own Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village. The state-of-the-art facility is also where he would begin his final project, the ambitious double album First Rays of the New Rising Sun.


    Here, the group lays down the foundation for its follow-up to Electric Ladyland, alongside the guitar superhero's first sessions with bassist Billy Cox, an army buddy Hendrix had recruited into his new ensemble. As such, Valleys Of Neptune offers more than an hour of previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix music, newly mixed for this historic release by Hendrix's longtime engineer Eddie Kramer, who first worked with the guitarist on 1967's Are You Experienced? Valleys Of Neptune is produced by Janie Hendrix, John McDermott (who contributes detailed liner notes), and Kramer. The Valleys Of Neptune single has long been one of the most sought-after of Hendrix's recordings. But it's not the only reason to grab this set.


    Other highlights encompass blazing studio covers of Elmore James' Bleeding Heart and Cream's Sunshine of Your Love, as well as premier performances of original Hendrix compositions like Ships Passing Through The Night, Lullaby For The Summer, and the original recording of the Jimi Hendrix Experience rendition of Hear My Train A Comin'. Also included is Mr. Bad Luck, a Jimi Hendrix Experience track, produced by Chas Chandler during the 1967 Axis: Bold as Love sessions.

    Winterland (Box Set)

    Hendrix's Most Storied Live Three-Night Stand Comes to Brilliant Life on Stellar, Audiophile-Quality Box Set


    Features Tons of Performances Not Available on Any Other Release


    Six 1968 Concerts from San Francisco's Historic Venue Reshaped Rock and Roll: Here Are the Highlights


    8LP Edition Annihilates All Previous Winterland Compilations: Tremendous Sonics and Insight


    Also Includes 36-Page Book and Rare Backstage Interview With Hendrix


    Jimi Hendrix's Woodstock performance may be his most famous, but the guitarist named by Rolling Stone as the best in history was never better than at a three-night stand in San Francisco, putting on a total of six concerts that fans have long clamored to hear. Featuring the creme de la creme of said performances, now everyone finally gets their wish.


    Winterland is drawn from said six stellar shows recorded over three days (October 10, 11 and 12, 1968) at San Francisco's historic Winterland Ballroom. These special performances celebrated the two-year anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and came just as the groundbreaking album Electric Ladyland was released. Even given the era's rich history, you'll be hard-pressed to come up with any concert that rivals what's here.


    As many already know, Winterland presents some of Hendrixs most spectacular guitar work. This scintillating set is filled with rare live versions of classic songs such as Manic Depression, Are You Experienced?, Tax Free, and Little Wing that are not part of any other Sony Legacy releases. Fans will also enjoy Hendrixs dramatic interpretations of Creams Sunshine Of Your Love and Howlin Wolfs Killing Floor (with the Experience joined by Jefferson Airplane bassist Jack Casady) as well his rendition of Bob Dylans Like A Rolling Stone, which many critics and fans regard as the ultimate interpretation.


    Pressed on 8 x 180g LPs, this special deluxe box set features never before released music from each of the six unforgettable Winterland performances. Please note that Winterland is now markedly different from the flawed single disc compilation, long out of print, briefly issued by Rykodisc in 1987 and 1988. Moreover, Winterland also presents a rare interview with Hendrix recorded backstage at the Boston Garden a few weeks after the Winterland performances. This previously unreleased bonus provides fans with a unique window into Hendrixs views about his background, his approach to the guitar, and songwriting and future direction of his music.


    As should be required for any such box set, Winterland features a 36-page booked filled with previously unpublished images by acclaimed photographers Robert Knight, Allen Tannenbaum, and Jim Marshall, as well as an essay by noted Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke.

    I Am The Blues

    Chicago Bluesman Willie Dixon was perhaps best known for his songwriting. He wrote or co-wrote over 500 songs and his songs have been recorded by some of the best-known blues musicians of his era, including Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, and Buddy Guy.


    Later, his songs were popularized by groups, such as The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Cream, and Led Zeppelin, whose Whole Lotta Love was loosely based don Dixon´s You Need Love. On this 1970 LP, the quintessential blues songwriter performs his own tunes - every one a classic: I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man, The Little Red Rooster, Spoonful and of course Back Door Man to name a few!


    Long overdue, the album was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1986, whereas Willie Dixon was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

    Live From Nowhere In Particular

    Live from Nowhere in Particular is the 2008 album from Joe Bonamassa, an US blues guitarist/singer. Guitar One Magazine has stated that 'he just might be the best guitarist of his generation.' His blues-rock style is similar to that of Stevie Ray Vaughan's. In an interview in 'Guitarist' magazine (issue 265), Joe Bonamassa cited the three albums that had the biggest influence on his playing: John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (the 'Beano Album'), Rory Gallagher's 'Irish Tour' and 'Goodbye' by Cream.

    Suicide Squeeze Records Presents:Forever Singles (Awaiting Repress)


    Limited Edition Of 1,000 Copies


    Pressed On Custom Light Green Vinyl


    Hand-numbered


    Like many of the great independent record labels of the '90s, Suicide Squeeze started
    off as a hobby. And like so many other hobby labels, Suicide Squeeze's rst ventures
    were 7 singles. But whereas many upstarts plodded through a series of crudely
    assembled debut records by short-lived and long-forgotten friends' bands, the Seattle
    label hit the ground running with a stream of well-packaged singles by beloved
    Northwest artists - 764-Hero, Pedro The Lion, Elliott Smith, and Modest Mouse, to
    name a few. Not surprisingly, the quality of these early releases helped catapult the
    label into a full-time operation.


    Whether a testament to the enduring allure of vinyl or the quality of the artists on the
    roster, Suicide Squeeze continues to make 7s. And in this era of renewed interest in
    vinyl, the label's limited-run releases sell out quickly. Lucky collectors continue to enjoy
    the vinyl, and the dedicated fans always have the option to download the mp3s. But
    what's the better plan for making these recordings endure for posterity? To add mp3s
    to the ever-expanding annals of the internet, or to create a new slab of wax capturing
    the best singles Suicide Squeeze has had to offer in recent years? Not content with
    limiting the songs to the former, the Seattle indie label is going for the latter, culling
    some of their nest tracks for the compilation album Suicide Squeeze Presents:
    Forever Singles.


    The LP captures the rowdy garage rock of The Coathangers and Davilla 666, the
    scraggly dirt-ridden guitars of JEFF the Brotherhood and Heavy Cream, the nostalgic
    '60s girl-group melodies of Bleached and La Luz, the exuberant power pop of
    Audacity, King Tuff, Nobunny, and Meat Market, the hazy noir soundtrack of Dirty
    Beaches, the vitriolic basement-show noise-punk of Nu Sensae, the sinister post-punk
    of Wax Idols, and the West Texas-bred Twin Reverb rock of The Numerators. Bundled
    together onto one record, the collection perfectly captures the spirit of Suicide
    Squeeze in the current decade: rambunctious youthful urgency tempered with a hat
    tip to rock n' roll's gritty unsung heroes of the past.


    In keeping with the limited-edition nature of the 7s, Forever Singles will be released
    on 1000 hand-numbered colored vinyl. And while the compilation is a vital
    documentation of the Northwest label's continuing commitment to bold and brash new
    artists, it's also a solid reminder of rock music's humble beginning on dusty old '45s.

    Europe '72 Vol. 2 (Out Of Stock)

    This exclusive Record Store Day vinyl version of Europe 72 Vol. 2. LP includes a bonus track not found on the CD version; Big Railroad Blues recorded at the Tivoli Concert Hall in Copenhagen (4/17/72).


    Europe '72, a triple live album documenting its historic trek across Europe became not only one of the band's best-selling releases, but also set the gold standard for live Dead. Now the group proves you can never get too much of a good thing when it revisits that legendary collection with Europe '71 Vol. 2, an essential continuation of the original that includes more than two hours of unreleased performances from that storied tour.


    Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux, who produced this 20-track compilation, says he only chose song titles that did not appear on Europe '72 as a way to complement the original. I think this album, coupled with Europe '72, represents a complete overview of the tour in every way, he says. In fact, songs like Beat It On Down The Line, Next Time You See Me and Sing Me Back Home were selected by the Grateful Dead for the first set, but were left off because there wasn't enough room.


    In a nod to the original, Vol. 2 features new cover art by Stanley Mouse, the artist who helped create the iconic artwork from Europe '72, which features the return of the legendary Ice Cream Kid. Trouble comes in many flavors. Ice Cream Kid is in hot water. The jury is out. His only defense is love, says Mouse of the Kid's return.


    Recorded at various locations during the band's 22-show tour, the collection captures the Dead in white-hot moments of improvisational revelry as the band explores a number of its most enduring songs, like Bertha, Sugaree and Playing In the Band, plus relatively obscure cuts like Black-Throated Wind and Pigpen's Chinatown Shuffle.


    As a special treat, the set includes an epic hour-plus jam that combines Dark Star and The Other One. Recorded at the Bickershaw Festival, it was the only show on this tour where the band broke out both of these beloved improvisational showpieces. Vol. 2 also includes Good Lovin and Dire Wolf from the April 26 show at Jahrhundert Halle in Frankfurt, West Germany. While much of that concert was released on 1995's Hundred Year Hall, these particular tracks were not included and have remained unreleased until now.
