A whole lotta vinyl

Some say all good things come in threes. We say they come in a new batch of fresh releases! From old school Soul to Electronic Indie, satisfaction is (as always) guaranteed.

BROKEN BELLS - BROKEN BELLS

Broken Bells - STWhen James Mercer of the Shins got together with Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse, the result became more than the sum of its parts.

Plans for their collaboration were made since 2004 but first blossomed into their first single "The High Road" in 2009. An album had to follow, so in 2010 Broken Bells was released to great critical and popular acclaim.

MOTT THE HOOPLE - ALL THE YOUNG DUDES

Mott The Hoople - All The Young DudesOften called 'one of the defining Glam platters', Mott The Hoople's All The Young Dudes (1972) was an influential record when it came out, and continues to impress listeners to this day.

Coproduced by David Bowie, the album contains a balanced selection of well written songs by Ian Hunter and the boys. The band is on a roll, and having Bowie on board to colour in the songs with his distinctive style makes this an essential record for '70s Rock fans all over the globe.

BONNIE RAITT - GIVE IT UP

Bonnie Raitt - Give It UpBonnie Raitt's second album Give It Up (1972) is considered one of her very best. Although she scored hits with later albums, Give It Up developed into a genre-bending and generation-defining record.

Raitt followed up on her eponymous debut [MOVLP735] with her trademark crossover of Blues, Folk and Californian Rock – delivered with a style and sensuality that has rarely been heard on a record.

TED NUGENT - DOUBLE LIVE GONZO

Ted Nugent - Double Live GonzoTed Nugents untameable energy is best transmitted live on stage; Double Live Gonzo! (1978) achieves this like no other. He shouts, grunts and squeals, while his guitar does the same. Pure pyrotechnics on 6 strings!

GERRY MULLIGAN QUARTET - WHAT IS THERE TO SAY?

Gerry Mulligan - What Is There To SayRecorded over several days in 1958 and 1959, What Is There To Say? is one of the finest Cool Jazz records you'll ever hear. Teaming up as a quartet, baritone sax-player Mulligan and co. play 8 tunes, featuring Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Crow on bass and Dave Bailey on drums.

His last 'pianoless' album, this record oozes the fun and laid-back vibe that must have permeated the studio during these sessions.

RANDY NEWMAN - SAIL AWAY

ORandy Newman - Sail Awayften cited as one of his finest works, Sail Away (1972) established Randy Newman as a unique Pop artist like no other. Equally influenced by the vocal delivery of Bob Dylan and by traditional New Orleans R&B, Newman added a healthy dose of humour to the mix to great effect.

EXTREME - PORNOGRAFFITTI

RExtreme - Pornograffittiiding on the success of "More Than Words", Extreme II: Pornograffitti became the breakthrough-album for the Bostonian rockers Extreme.

Combining Glam with Pop, Extreme carved out a niche for themselves propelled by a lot of MTV play for "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted". The album tells a broader story than both hits: powerful Glam with out-of-this world solos are the bread and butter of this album.
