PRONG - CLEANSING

Prong - CleansingProng's distinctive industrial Metal sound influenced subsequent bands such as Korn and Nine Inch Nails. They built on their signature sound with their 4th full length album Cleansing (1994). Aptly titled, the album indeed cleansed their sound, resulting in 12 stripped down, highly effective musical precision bombs.

As per the original release, the first pressing is limited to 500 copies on red vinyl and individually numbered.

JOHN LEE HOOKER - NEVER GET OUT OF THESE BLUES ALIVE

John Lee Hooker - Never Get Out Of These Blues AliveThe unparalleled John Lee Hooker recorded Never Get Out Of These Blues Alive within two days in 1971, working together with young Blues stars Van Morrison and Steve Miller, among others.

John takes centre stage delivering the hard edged Blues he's known for, whilst giving his fellow musicians enough space to jam along. Stellar performances by Charlie Musselwhite on blues harp and Miller & Elvin Bishop on guitar top off the album.

TIM BUCKLEY - GREETINGS FROM L.A.

Tim Buckley - Greetings From LAThe first album in his 'sex-funk' era, Greetings From L.A. (1972) was a step into another direction for Buckley. Ordinarily known for his signature Folk sound, on Greetings From L.A. he focused on Soul, Jazz and Funk for the first time in his career.

Just like the original, the front sleeve contains a unique punch-out postcard of a wonderful Los Angeles vista.
