Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack)The multi-part documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher, directed by Thom Zimny pushes past the larger-than-life image of The King of Rock and Roll, portraying him instead as a man and an artist who wanted to heal, to find that thing that was always felt to be missing, and to do it through the music.
This soundtrack features 18 songs as heard in the film including familiar hit recordings (Heartbreak Hotel, Are You Lonesome Tonight?), powerful vocal performances (That's All Right, Tomorrow Is a Long Time, Trouble/Guitar Man) and rare outtakes (Suspicious Minds, Separate Ways).LP 1

The Ventures Christmas AlbumAs rocks biggest-selling and most influential instrumental combo, the Ventures are one of Americas most iconic bands. Long before anyone had heard of the Beatles, the Ventures influenced kids around the world to invest in electric guitars. The quartet delivered a sleek, instantly recognizable sound whose influence spread as far as Japan, where they remain bigger-than-life superstars. Having recently celebrated the groups 50th anniversary as well as their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Ventures continue to exercise a massive influence on nearly every instrumental guitar band that followed them.
The Ventures were also one of the first rock acts to conquer the album market, selling large quantities of their LPs at a time when rock n roll was still largely a singles medium. One of the bands best-loved longplayers is The Ventures Christmas Album. Originally released in 1965, it finds the foursomefeaturing the legendary guitar-slinging frontline of Bob Bogle, Nokie Edwards and Don Wilsonapplying their trademark style to a dozen familiar yuletide tunes, including Sleigh Ride, Santa Claus Is Comin to Town, Jingle Bells and White Christmas. The Ventures soup up these seasonal standards by adding snazzy guitar phrases that quote then-current rock n roll hits by the likes of the Beatles, the Searchers and Johnny Rivers, as well as a few older Ventures classics.
In the years since its release, The Ventures Christmas Album has remained a holiday favorite, as well as one of the most popular items in the bands catalog. Tracks from the album continue to grace the radio airwaves during the holiday season, and are regularly included on Christmas-themed compilation albums. But the best way to experience these instrumental gems is on the complete original vinyl LP. Sundazed Music has mastered this vintage gem from the original analog tapes and pressed it on 180 gram vinyl, with complete original cover art.1. Sleigh Ride

Devil's HaloDevils Halo, Meshell Ndegeocello's 8th album, harkens back to the way records used to be made with live band energy and phenomenal musicianship. Influenced by a breadth of sounds, from The Human League to Wu Tang to Yes, Devils Halo displays Meshells own diversity of formidable gifts. Always the uncompromising artist and bass player, this record brings a broad range of musical and lyrical voices and selves: the searcher, the skeptic, the dissenter, and the lover. True to form, Meshell offers compositions with raging climaxes alongside moments of terrifying tenderness and honesty. Genre-defiant as ever, Devils Halo asks for the real fans of exploration to please stand up.
Canonized, marginalized or just scrutinized, Meshell Ndegeocello has given up with the politics of explaining herself. After 20 years in an industry that has called her everything from avant garde to a dying breed, what unquestionably remains is the fearsome bassist, prolific songwriter and the creativity and curiosity of an authentic musical force. With that, she has earned critical acclaim, the unfailing respect of fellow players, songwriters and composers, and the dedication of her diverse, unclassifiable fans. For the sake of setting the record straight, a few brass tacks remain: Meshell was born in Germany, raised in DC, signed at 23, and has been nominated for 10 Grammy awards.1. Slaughter

One of rock's greatest albums, this is the debut album by the Crickets and the only one featuring Buddy Holly released during his lifetime. The Chirping Crickets contains the group's number one single That'll Be the Day and its Top Ten hit Oh, Boy!. Other Crickets classics include Not Fade Away, Maybe Baby, and I'm Looking for Someone to Love.
These are among the best rock 'n' roll songs of the 1950s or ever, making this one of the most significant album debuts in rock 'n' roll history - ranking with Elvis Presley and Meet the Beatles, writes AllMusic.
What has Analogue Productions done to kick this classic album up a notch? For starters, our version features stellar remastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Followed by state-of-the-art plating and pressing on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Stoughton Printing provides a sturdy old-style tip-on jacket to round out the package.
Born Charles Hardin Holley on September 7, 1936, in Lubbock, Texas, Holly was nicknamed Buddy by his mother. She felt that his given name was too big for her little boy. Holly, the altered form of his last name, would later result from a misspelling in his first recording contract. Holly learned to play piano and fiddle at an early age, while his older brothers taught him the basics of guitar.
In early 1956, Holly and his band began recording demos and singles in Nashville under the name Buddy Holly and the Three Tunes, but the group's lineup was later revised and dubbed The Crickets. Holly wrote and recorded his breakthrough hit, That'll Be the Day, with The Crickets in 1957. The song's title and refrain are a reference to a line uttered by John Wayne in the 1956 film The Searchers. Between August 1957 and August 1958, Holly and the Crickets charted seven different Top 40 singles.
Composer and singer John Fogerty, of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame, inducted Buddy Holly into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame at the 1986 Hall of Fame induction ceremony. What Buddy Holly meant to him, Fogerty said, was destiny calling. Fogerty, 12, bought That'll Be The Day and soon began dreaming of forming his own combo, like the group of musicians - The Crickets - he saw on the album cover. And in Liverpool, England, the same thing was going on with four other guys. They named their group The Beatles, because Buddy Holly's group was called The Crickets.
We are, each of us, made up of the people we love and the people we admire, Fogerty, said. We take those reflections, and hopefully, grow.
Holly's talented life was cut short in a plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959, that also claimed the lives of Ritchie Valens and J.P. The Big Bopper Richardson. This album is a tribute to what was, and what might have been a lengthy pioneering musical career.

No Mercy In This Land (180 Gram)Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl
No Mercy In This Land is a blues record. Charlie Musselwhite and Ben Harper were introduced to one another by John Lee Hooker. The legendary musician thought the two men should play together, so he brought them into the studio to record a song called simply "Burnin' Hell." The two remained friends and their paths periodically crossed out there on the road. But it wasn't until 2013 that the two met up in a studio to record what would be their Grammy-winning album Get Up!. And as good as that record was, it was just the beginning. Both men agree that their friendship deepened in the many months of touring that followed. And it's that bond, that closeness, that makes this new record something special.
At first glance, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite might seem an unlikely pairing. While Ben grew up in in the tree-lined Southern California college town of Claremont, a bastion of culture and liberalism just east of Los Angeles, Charlie was raised in Memphis during the time of rockabilly and Sun Records. But while the two might have come to their musical knowledge in different eras and places, as Charlie explains, "We were both searchers and we're still seeking." Each of them possesses an enduring hunger for musical knowledge that came to them early.1. When I Go
