February was a good month, but it gets even better!!
These titles are available from the 27th of February.
ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK – FROM DUSK TILL DAWN (1LP) – MOVLP433
'From Dusk Till Dawn: Music from the Motion Picture' is the soundtrack album for the 1996 action-comedy-horror film, directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by the legendary Quentin Tarantino. The soundtrack has a lot of Texas Blues, featuring artists such as ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmie Vaughan.
This record – previously unavailable on vinyl – comes in a gatefold sleeve, contains a 6-panel insert and extracts of dialogues from the film and includes a secret bonus track.
WILLIE DIXON – I AM THE BLUES (1LP) – MOVLP493
His songs were popularized by groups such as The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Cream, and Led Zeppelin.
On this 1970 LP, the quintessential Blues songwriter performs his own tunes – each one a classic: "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", "I Can't Quit You, Baby", "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.
All the audio on this album has been re-mastered.
LEONARD COHEN – DEATH OF A LADIES MAN (1LP) – MOVLP476
The day Leonard Cohen and Phil Spector decided to make an album together marked the beginning of one of the most controversial partnerships in either man's career. For Cohen it represents the peak of his first decade as a recording artist, both lyrically and stylistically stepping into wholly untapped musical directions. 'Death Of A Ladies' Man' might even be his masterpiece...
Like the original release in 1977, this re-release comes in a gatefold sleeve.
TEN YEARS AFTER – STONEDHENGE (1LP) – MOVLP312
On August 17, 1969, Ten Years After broke through to American audiences thanks to a wildly successful performance at Woodstock. Their rendition of "I'm Going Home" was featured both in the film and on the soundtrack album and it catapulted them to stardom. Earlier that year they had released their 3rd LP, 'Stonedhenge'. It shows Ten Years After was already expanding their basic boogie-rock template. Producer Mike Vernon helped steer the band into a more jazz- and blues-oriented direction.
This re-release (the first vinyl re-issue since 1969!) comes in a gatefold sleeve.
SOCIAL DISTORTION – SOCIAL DISTORTION (1LP) – MOVLP491
Social Distortion's third eponymous album from 1990 would turn out to be their best-known work, spawning d the most hits, with singles "Ball And Chain", "Story Of My Life" and the Johnny Cash cover "Ring Of Fire". It mixed Punk with Rockabilly, Blues & Country, and split the difference between Rockabilly and Ramones-style Punk. The album includes an insert with lyrics.
THE STYLE COUNCIL – CAFÉ BLEU (1LP) – MOVLP313
The Style Council was formed in 1983 by the ex-The Jam singer and guitarist Paul Weller with keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller's then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee. 'Café Bleu' is their official debut album released in March 1984, reaching number 2 in the UK charts.
This album also includes a large number of extra musicians, known as Honorary Councillors, including Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt from Everything But The Girl. This first vinyl re-issue since its 1984 release includes an insert.
