The Who Sell Out
180-gram Vinyl, Remastered In 24/96 Format
Includes The Original Artwork
Includes Extras & Inserts Included In The Original Releases
Pete Townshend originally planned The Who Sell Out as a concept album of sorts that would simultaneously mock and pay tribute to pirate radio stations, complete with fake jingles and commercials linking the tracks. I Can See for Miles (a Top Ten hit) is the Who at their most thunderous; tinges of psychedelia add a rush to Armenia City in the Sky and Relax; I Can't Reach You finds Townshend beginning to stretch himself into quasi-spiritual territory; and Tattoo and the acoustic Sunrise show introspective, vulnerable sides to the singer/songwriter that had previously been hidden. Rael was another mini-opera, with musical motifs that reappeared in Tommy. The album is as perfect a balance between melodic mod pop and powerful instrumentation as the Who (or any other group) would achieve; psychedelic pop was never as jubilant, not to say funny (the fake commercials and jingles interspersed between the songs are a hoot).

Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell OutOn Petra Haden Sings The Who Sell Out, Petra re-imagines all The Who's singing and instrumental parts - including drums - and tackles all the interstitial mock radio commercials that are so integral to the original experience. The final result is a technical tour de force that also invites a fuller appreciation of The Who's own achievement, bringing to the fore all the original elements of chorale music, vaudevillian schmaltz and Renaissance chamber ensemble playing.1.

Out Among The StarsThroughout his five decades in music, Johnny Cash was unwavering in his dedication to his sound and style. Starting with Sun Records in 1955 through his days at Columbia and beyond, Cash always knew exactly what he wanted to do and exactly how it should sound. Everything he did, all the music he created was definitively Johnny Cash.
By 1980, the business of country music had changed to incorporate sounds that were incongruous with Cash's. His signature blend of folk and that boom-chicka-boom beat was out of vogue amongst the slick string-laden countrypolitan sounds that had become popular. This shift left all-time greats like Cash in the odd place of being revered, but not selling albums. In one effort to enhance his commercial appeal, Columbia Records paired Cash with producer Billy Sherrill who was having major success with this new country sound. While Sherrill selected many of the songs, it was Cash's trademark sound that dominated. The sessions were nothing short of magic. Cash employed an expanded band, featuring a young Marty Stuart on guitar and fiddle as well as long-time duet partners June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings. Much of what was recorded was locked away in the vault lost and not to be heard again. Until now.
Discovered in 2012, Out Among The Stars is truly a lost, previously unreleased Johnny Cash album. These aren't alternate takes or different versions of songs that you've heard. These are brand new songs to the Cash canon. Completed in 2013 by Johnny's only son John Carter Cash, Out Among The Stars is a pivotal Johnny Cash album lost in time, and now ready to become a classic.1. Out Among the Stars

The Who: Live At The Fillmore East 1968Universal Music will issue The Who Live at the Fillmore East 1968, a set of unreleased recordings from the second of two nights played at Bill Graham's legendary, but short-lived, venue in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
The Who's manager Kit Lambert had recorded both the 5th and 6th of April shows of '68 with a view to issuing as The Who's fourth album after Sell Out. That never happened, but 50 years later sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was there in 1968) has restored and mixed songs from the 6 April show for this new archival release.
The setlist features extended versions of My Generation (33 minutes!), A Quick One , Shakin' All Over and many other Who classics. This will be issued as a gatefold triple vinyl set.LP 1

Petra Goes To The MoviesPetra Haden's wondrous new album Petra Goes to the Movies offers a one of a kind opportunity to experience film scores in an extraordinary new way. Epic and evocative scores have been ingeniously recreated utilizing layers of remarkably inventive vocals. Far from a mere novelty, these interpretations retain all the emotional resonance of the originals. Out this January 22 via Anti-, Petra Goes to the Movies features Haden, a highly regarded session musician (Foo Fighters, Beck, the Decemberists) and former member of That Dog, delivering a cappella versions of scores from films such as Psycho, Rebel Without A Cause, Taxi Driver, Superman and more. Haden, who hails from a musical family that includes her father, distinguished jazz bassist Charlie Haden, has a history of working a capella; in 2005, at the suggestion of bassist Mike Watt, she recorded and released an a-cappella rendition of the Who's pop masterwork The Who Sell Out to widespread acclaim. Upon hearing the record, Pete Townshend telephoned Haden to enthusiastically thank her, proclaiming her version of his album "beautiful."
Petra Goes to the Movies is the culmination of Haden's lifelong love for both vocal interpretation and movie music: "The idea of interpreting music with my voice started when I was little," she explains. "I would hear music around the house and mimic the instruments with my voice. And I love movies but my favorite thing about them has always been the soundtracks. When people hear this record I want them to feel what I felt when I first saw the film, even if they've never seen it."
In addition to Haden's multi layered vocals, the record features notable guest appearances by jazz pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Charlie Haden and Bill Frisell.1. Rebel Without A Cause Main Title - Rebel Without A

Key Lime Pie
Includes 45 RPM Bonus Track "Closing Theme!" On Side D (Plays From The Center Groove)
Includes New Liners And Photos
Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in 1988 and delivered a record that defied those who thought the band might "sell out." The band
returned the following year with what most deem their masterpiece- Key Lime Pie.
Omnivore Recordings is excited to reissue Camper Van Beethoven's Virgin Records output, including 1989's classic, Key Lime Pie.
Once again produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), Key Lime Pie continued the journey into the world of CVB, but with higher
production value and sound than had been heard before. From a track about Jack Ruby to a cover of Status Quo's "Pictures Of Matchstick Men", Key
Lime Pie was a slice above the rest and a fitting dessert for the 1980s.
The nearly hourlong album was originally pressed on one LP, but Omnivore has expanded it to two LPs
(for better sound) and added a bonus track to Side D.
Includes new liners and photos. Presented as they should be, they will delight fans and educate those who have only read about the
importance of this record. Key Lime Pie is both sweet and tart, but Key Lime Pie is an essential component to any musical meal.LP 1

"Single Mothers might be that band, fusing Americana staples like Bruce Springsteen with wild and raucous punk rock..." - Brooklyn Vegan
"Ferocious and untamed, few bands give any more of themselves onstage." - Clash
"Thomson's almost entirely quotable..." - Pitchfork
"It's honest and it's worth coming back to over and over." - Fader
While accounts vary, Single Mothers was either founded amidst a nervous breakdown or as a means for payback. What is known, is that it was shakily hatched
by Drew Thomson in his hometown of London, Ontario in 2008. Having lined up
shows before he had a band or any music of his own, Thomson would quickly gain a
reputation as a gifted troubadour; known for his enunciated howl and literary lyrics
that married poetic penance with vignettes of small town ennui. But he was also an
incendiary character; firing his band outright in 2009, and at one point having two
different versions of the band existing at the same time.
Somehow the right core of characters fell into place, solidifying the band's feral take
on punk rock; gritty rock 'n' roll sensibilities counterbalanced with hooks, dynamics
Released as the S/T EP by Secret Voice in 2012, the first pressing of the 7" would
sell out in weeks, then sell thousands of copies in the ensuing years.
Negative Qualities is an unrelenting ten song behemoth of a debut album that was
two years in the making; written across two provinces, initially started in Los Angeles
then finished in London, Toronto and Upstate New York. It represents a band pushed
to their most savage state, it's their pound of flesh slammed down on the counter as
raw statement. And now, they're looking to collect. But as Thomson rallies "I am who
I am" on Negative Qualities one can only wonder if this is a declaration of acceptance or a derision of him and his band? As such, the album will either be the first
of many or the band's final record. Ultimately, it is up to Single Mothers and their
inherited behavior to decide.1. Overdose

Man Man bring their incomparable vision of pop music to their ANTI- debut Rabbit Habits, finally recording an album that matches the fierce energy of their non-stop live shows, which utilize a variety of more traditional musical instruments like the accordion, the Moog keyboard and the xylophone, as well as incorporating often overlooked noisemakers like soup pots, shoes, a fire extinguisher and squeaky toys. With a live following that sells out clubs coast to coast, and a kinetic stage presence that finds band members, dressed in white jumpsuits and warpaint, constantly switching instruments, Man Man are a musical contagion waiting to happen.1.

Tides End"Tides End" is the second Minks album, but you could say it's a world away from the first. Moving out of New York City to try and cure a bout of writer's block, frontman/songwriter Sonny Kilfoyle wound up in the East End of Long Island. Surrounded by water on three sides, it's the same place that drew Warhol, Pollock, de Kooning, Steinbeck and more to escape the constant barrage of information of the urban landscape.
The result is not just a romantic trip into isolation, but a melodic and warm experience to immerse yourself in. It's a pop record, with all the hooks and harmonies you'd expect from that, delivered with experience, depth and hope.
The escapist mentality of the location directly and literally affected "Tides End," as the LP is named for a beachfront estate Sonny had wandered upon one day while out for a drive. Occupied by one family for generations, who after financial decline, are now forced to sell all they own. The experience of seeing old East Coast wealth, surrounded by beautiful Rococo paintings yet no modern appliances was the initial spark to record the LP. Kilfoyle
himself purchased a portrait "Margot," which inspired and named one of the LP's catchiest tracks.Visions of sipping gin and lemonade's on the dunes with their future in peril could be something clearly reflected in the choruses of "Everything's Fine" and "Playboys of the Western World." Themes of affluence, decadence and eventual decay in spite of the outside world are everywhere, even by the skull and shells amidst an explosion of color in the Everest Hall painting that graces the cover. This is "Tides End," indeed.
Armed with a new arsenal of material, Sonny connected with producer and engineer, Mark Verbos, who had moved to New York from Berlin after a prolific career in techno and electronic music. The entire album was recorded at Mark's studio, a former electric room in the base of the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge. "It was actually a very uninspiring and uncreative but it forced us to use our imagination and find new ways to work together,"says Kilfoyle. So when they encountered a creative impasse they would consult The KLF's
"manual" or Verbos would choose a card from Brian Eno's "Oblique Strategies." To clear the cobwebs of influence, the producer chose to only allow Sonny to listen to Seal, Simply Red, Enigma, and early Chicago house music during the recording process. This helped build texture and depth in a recording that blended ambiance and immediacy to the established foundation of all the of Minks' previous work.1. Romans

Grow SlowThere was once a young African princess who embarked on a huge journey in pursuit of her dreams.She arrived at a mystical island covered in clouds where she met a cunning wizard...Sounds like the beginning of some Disney fantasy but the truth is not so different. The Princess is Sena who came from Accra, Ghana to a festival in the centre of Budapest, Hungary and met a musical wizard by the name of DJ Vadim... that was in 2005. What happened that night was the meeting not only of like minded souls, but the beginning of a future journey into sound and space. First came recordings for Vadim for the Soundcatcher album Talk To Me (2007 BBE) which was much lauded by Gilles Peterson at the time... Which led to a long process of creating an album. Much happened in between. Each had many of their own adventures.Grammy Award shows, sell out arena shows for Sena's band in Hungary - Irie Mafia - plus the birth of her beautiful daughter Kekeli and the release of her second solo album Lots Of Trees on French Soulbeats Records; world wide shenanagins for DJ Vadim with his groups, One Self, The Electric and many solo projects...Perhaps a good analogy would be the perfect pasta. One needs both to cook it exactly, not too hard or too soft and also a complimentary sauce. It takes time, love, effort and good ingredients. What's the result, simple but delicious and what a perfect combination Sena & Vadim make also.Perhaps add some chile pepper to bring out the African funk mixed with London tricknology from the grimey east London hoods and that's what it sounds like. It's not just soul but has a peppery kick, a proud African roar with somewhat a Caribbean touch.Then again, that's the Dubcatcher Vadim bringing his bass and skank to the mix. This isn't rose tinted squeaky clean US R&B, this is a diamond in the ruff worldly spoken words, raps and emotions...Think Erykah Badu meets Damian Marley over the new upsetter hot steppa DJ Vadim...1.

Every now and then a band comes along and speaks to the hearts of kids everywhere, as the true
voice of their generation. Man Overboard is that band in the pop-punk community . In an age
when overnight internet sensations are an everyday occurrence, it's hard to find a band that's
grown organically, the old fashioned way, via word of mouth and non-stop touring, winning kids
over one show at a time. Man Overboard has been busy touring the world for the past 5 years,
having shared the stage with the likes of Taking Backing Sunday, Bayside, New Found Glory, The
Wonder Years, and more. The bands buzz reached New Found Glory's guitar player Steve Klein who
fell in love with their infectious pop-punk sound and catchy choruses.
He was so impressed with the band that he offered to produce "Heart Attack" the bands second Rise Records release. Man Overboard is humbled by their success, but also know that they still have a long road ahead of
them. In the grand scheme of things, it's only the beginning. After drawing huge crowds on the
Vans Warped Tour last year the band was personally asked by tour founder Kevin Lyman to return
on a bigger stage this summer. Man Overboard is currently on a headline run that's doing sell out
business. Things are just about to tip for Man Overboard, regardless they continue to play every
show like it is their last, and treat every fan like their first.1.Secret Pain

Sleeping With Sirens has turned into a monster of a band. As the band prepares to release their 3rd full length album, they
are selling a combined 4,000+ albums a week of catalog, with all 3 titles (2 full lengths and 1 Ep) fast approaching 100k sales
apiece. The EP hasn't been out a full year and has sold over 84,000 units. While the band is on a steep climb up, it's been
something Sleeping With Sirens has worked towards for years, creating a large, rock solid foundation of loyal fans who are
eagerly awaiting the new album. For the past few years Sleeping With Sirens has been touring non-stop, with bands such as
Of Mice & Men, Pierce the Veil and Memphis May Fire, including a stint on the Vans Warped Tour. The band is currently
doing a full US headliner that has been 100% sold out and will be on the Main Stage of The Vans Warped Tour this summer
after doing a sold out UK and European Tour in May.
The band's 3rd album is their best material yet. Teaming up with Cameron Mizell who they've worked with
on a previous full length, and enlisting mixer Dan Korneff (Breaking Benjamin, My Chemical Romance,
Mayday Parade) and masterer Ted Jensen (Green Day, Bon Jovi, The Offspring) to complete the
team creating the album, Sleeping With Sirens was able to deliver their best, most heartfelt album,
sonically more superior than anything they've done to date. With tracks like the radio friendly single

xx (pronounced multiply) is the second studio album by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
Ed Sheeran is blessed - he seems to know exactly where he is going, and exactly how to get there. Where countless others fail to make an impression amid today's information overload, Ed's music and talent cut straight through.
He has a poise that is as welcome as it is unusual in someone so young. He's both utterly self-assured but still charmingly open. He has a confidence that's built not on being able to sing someone else's song quite nicely on a teatime TV show, but on hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of gigs where it's just him, his guitar, a loop pedal and a crowd.
Ed grew up in Suffolk where he learnt to play an old guitar given to him by an uncle. Spurred on by a chance meeting with the aforementioned Rice when he was 11, Ed started writing songs. Aged 16, he moved to London - into a flat above the T-Bird pub in Finsbury Park - with only one thing on his mind: playing gigs, as many as he could and as often as he could.
One night Ed played a tiny bar in North London whose website listed every young promoter in town. That night Ed Myspaced them all and a few days later he had nearly a hundred new gigs lined up. A pattern began to emerge - all day in the studio, all night playing gigs. From the early days Ed would sell CDs of his songs out of his backpack, putting cash in his pocket to get to the next gig, but also planting a flag in people's minds that here was music that was worth paying for. Not satisfied by CDs alone, fans have flocked to his website to pick up everything from hoodies to jewellery.
When Ed was told by his then management that he would need to conform to succeed - including dying his hair, and giving up his unique delivery - Ed responded by writing the cult song, 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You'. Over the next year he released five EPs, each one totally different, each one totally him. There was a singer-songwriter one, a live from The Bedford one, one written with singer Amy Wadge. Each sold better than the last.
After two years of constant gigging and sofa surfing, Ed recorded a live version of 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' for leading urban YouTube channel, SBTV. The clip got 100K hits in two days and is now approaching 1.5M views. A few days later, he wrote what would become his first major label release, 'The A Team': a story about a girl he met whilst working at a homeless shelter. The video for that has just surpassed 1M views.
By the time Ed released the final EP - No. 5 Collaborations, which featured the who's who of UK hip hop and grime: Devlin, Wretch 32, Dot Rotten, P Money, JME and Wiley, the support was so strong it propelled Ed to Number 2 in the iTunes album chart after just 24 hours. The only artist selling more copies was Rihanna. When Elton John called his mobile to congratulate him, Ed realised quite how big things had got. Amid interest from numerous labels Ed shortly signed with Asylum - part of Atlantic Records.LP 1

JOY DIVISION: BOX SET allows you to experience these pioneering albums the way they were heard originally - on sonically rich vinyl LPs. The three titles - a total of four LPS - come housed in an elegant cloth-covered box designed by U.K. artist Peter Saville, who created the distinctive artwork and packaging on the original issues of these classic releases. Once the 3,000 copies sell out, the box will not be reproduced.
Joy Division's 1979 debut UNKNOWN PLEASURES is a landmark album that established the band as principal architects and ultimate icons of the post-punk movement and the U.K. Manchester scene of the late '70s. UNKNOWN PLEASURES' ten classic songs resonate with the atmospheric textures and deep sonic spaces of Martin Hannett's production. Highlights include Insight, Disorder, New Dawn Fades and She's Lost Control. The latter song is the inspiration for the title of the 2007 film Control, the acclaimed Anton Corbijn-directed feature chronicling the life and times of Joy Division's lead singer and principal songwriter, the late Ian Curtis.
Joy Division's 1980 follow-up CLOSER, another seminal post-punk masterpiece, ranks #157 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Musically and lyrically driven by the prevailing despair of Ian Curtis - who killed himself only months after the LP was released - CLOSER was also produced by Martin Hannett, who weaves sprawling emotional chaos and shifting atmospheres and textures together into an enormously powerful ten-song tour de force. Stand-outs include Heart And Soul, Isolation, Eternal, Decades and the wrenching Twenty Four Hours.
The compilation STILL came out in late 1981, over a year after Curtis' death. Comprised of twenty studio outtakes, b-sides, live cuts and other rarities, all the tracks were previously unissued at the time of STILL's original release except for Glass and Dead Souls, both compelling studio recordings from 1978 and 1979, respectively. STILL also presents material from Joy Division's last-ever concert, recorded at Birmingham University in May 1980 including the only time they performed Ceremony live (the song would later become a New Order single). Another track captured at Birmingham is Shadowplay, a selection covered in 2007 by The Killers for the soundtrack for the film Control. Other highlights include a live cover of The Velvet Underground's Sister Ray and a 1979 studio recording of Something Must Break.
Joy Division formed in Manchester, England in 1977, and had an immense and profound impact on contemporary music in a very brief time together. They recorded only two full-length studio albums, UNKNOWN PLEASURES and CLOSER, prior to lead singer Ian Curtis' 1980 suicide, just before the single Love Will Tear Us Apart became their breakthrough hit. The remaining members - guitarist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris - disbanded Joy Division after Curtis' death, and re-formed as New Order.Unknown Pleasures Track Listing:

Hit ResetKathleen Hanna stealthily assembled the members of The Julie Ruin without any of them realizing exactly what was happening. It all began in late 2009. Kathleen had not released an album since Le Tigre's This Island (2004), and she was ready to jump back into music again. She knew her onetime Bikini Kill band mate Kathi Wilcox was going to be moving to New York in the near future, so she didn't even bother with finding a bass player at first. Carmine Covelli, who had toured with Le Tigre as their video guru, was having a blast at Kathleen's birthday party when she abruptly asked him to be the drummer.
A longtime admirer of Kathleen's work, Carmine couldn't say no to her at her own party, so of course he joined the band. Sara Landeau and Kathleen both taught at Girls Rock Camp and Kathleen lured her into the band by trading Pro Tools lessons for guitar lessons. Sara's surf-informed style gelled perfectly with Kathleen's sonic vision for her new band. Kathleen approached Kenny Mellman last with the idea that they should write country songs together to sell to other artists. Within a week of their first meeting, Kathleen's mysterious "manager" (whom Kenny maintains does not exist) told her that they would never break into the Nashville songwriting scene, so Kenny might as well join her new band on keyboards. Done.
In late 2014 they began work on their second album, Hit Reset, due out July 8th on Hardly Art records. Mixed by Eli Crews (with whom the band worked on Run Fast), Hit Reset expands on the band's established sound: dancier in spots and moodier in others, with girl group backing vocals and even a touching ballad closer. Hit Reset is the sound of a band who have found their sweet spot. Kathleen's vocals are empowered and her lyrics are as pointed and poignant as ever. From the chilling first lines of "Hit Reset"("Deer hooves hanging on the wall, shell casings in the closet hall") to the touching lines of "Calverton" ("Without you I might be numb, hiding in my apartment from everyone / Without you I'd take the fifth, or be on my death bed still full of wishes"), Hanna takes a leap into the personal not seen completely on the first album or possibly even in the rest of her work.1.

Combat Rock (Awaiting Repress)
Newly Remastered By The Clash From Original Tapes To Audiophile Quality
All Artwork Recreated From Original Release Including Replicated Fully Printed Inner Sleeves With An Exclusive Pennie Smith Photo Print
On the surface of things, Combat Rock appears to be a retreat from the sprawling stylistic explorations of London Calling and Sandinista! The pounding arena rock of Should I Stay or Should I Go makes the Clash sound like an arena rock band, and much of the album boasts a muscular, heavy sound courtesy of producer Glyn Johns. But things aren't quite that simple. Combat Rock contains heavy flirtations with rap, funk, and reggae, and it even has a cameo by poet Allen Ginsberg -- if this album is, as it has often been claimed, the Clash's sellout effort, it's a very strange way to sell out. Even with the infectious, dance-inflected new wave pop of Rock the Casbah leading the way, there aren't many overt attempts at crossover success, mainly because the group is tearing in two separate directions. Mick Jones wants the Clash to inherit the Who's righteous arena rock stance, and Joe Strummer wants to forge ahead into black music. The result is an album that is nearly as inconsistent as Sandinista!, even though its finest moments -- Should I Stay or Should I Go, Rock the Casbah, Straight to Hell -- illustrate why the Clash were able to reach a larger audience than ever before with the record.

ADAD-RIS-4688xI Can Make A Mess
EnolaWhen you're the main songwriter and driving force in a successful band, you often find yourself
creatively stifled. Your fans have certain expectations, and therefore you have an obligation to
deliver to them an album that meets their expectations, fits in their comfort zone, all while
growing and maturing as an artist. The problem with this is, true artists are capable of so much
more, music to them is an art, and the urge to create something new and exciting is something
that they can't suppress. Ace Enders found that success, both critically and commercially during
his tenure as the main songwriter of The Early November. The band went on to sell over 450,000
albums (3 of which sold over 100,000) And as much as Ace loved penning rock classics such as
Ever So Sweet and I Want To Hear You Sad, he wanted more, he wanted something different.
He wanted to be able to write songs that were more experimental, and creative. He wanted to
work in his own studio, on his own schedule and create songs that were truly important to him
and a pure reflection of who he was as an artist. These desires grew until they finally manifested
into I Can Make A Mess, Ace Enders' solo project.
I Can Make A Mess, isn't just a flash in the pan one off solo album. Over the past 9 years Ace
Enders has recorded 4 full length albums, he's had his songs in commercial movie trailers such as
Must Love Dogs and has toured the country with bands such as All American Rejects. His newest
masterpiece is titled Enola and it's set to come out June 11th 2013. The album is passionate,
and personal, experimental and honest, it's a must for fans of Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, Animal
Collective and American Football. I Can Make A Mess will be appearing on the entire 2013 Vans
Warped Tour, and will continue to tour through the fall. If you're looking for great songs, that are
a little out of your comfort zone, look no further.1. Enola
