It's been a bit rainy and grey up here in North Wales this week, Summer seems to have disappeared but we've been busy listing loads of pre-sale items coming out in the next few weeks so it's worth checking these out in our 'Coming Soon' section. We are listing pre-sale items every day at great prices which may be raised on release day (and will certainly be higher when we list on Discogs). A lot of the items listed in 'Coming Soon' are also special editions with limited runs/pressings so get your pre-sale order in asap. If you order a pre-sale item we will ship it to you for the day of release and keep in touch if these dates change.
Anyway here are some highlights from this weeks new releases, pretty much all re-issues in various forms but still essential:
1. Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Just Coolin' (Blue Note)
An unreleased studio album from the great jazz drummer with back up from a superb Jazz Messengers line up consisting of Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merritt.
2. Queen - Complete Studio Collection (EMI)
All 15 studio albums pressed on individually coloured vinyl with a hardback book, a lovely set and a must have for you Queen fans. Please note this is a heavy item so shipping will be a little expensive.
3. Little Steven - Voice of America (UMC)
If you love anthemic rock, big choruses and 80's production (and who doesn't?) you are going to love this. A nice CD re-issue package with a bonus live DVD from 1984. My personal fav this week, think I had it on cassette back in the day.
4. Joy Division - Closer (Warner Music)
40th Anniversary edition of this stone cold classic in lovely Crystal Clear 180g vinyl. We also have 12" represses of 'Transmission', 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' and ' Atmosphere'. Paula's recommendation for this week.
5. Slowdive - Just For A Day (Music On Vinyl)
Lovely limited and individually numbered re-issue on 'Flaming' coloured vinyl of this shoegaze classic from 1991.
6. Sasha - Airdrawndagger (Music On Vinyl)
The 2002 seminal work from the God like Sasha on a Limited run of 1500 on triple red coloured vinyl. Get the decks on.
7. Depeche Mode - Violator The 12" Singles (Sony)
A gorgeous deluxe box set containing ten of the 12" singles from the best Depeche Mode album (in my humble opinion of course)
Here is a playlist for this weeks new releases:
