…to the time when we just discovered our favorite groundbreaking Hard Rock record, or when Rap met Rock. Maybe we just stick to the simplicity of a good old R&B track.
This week we bring you a couple of releases that take us back in time. We start off with another classic Dream Theater album. Like our previous coloured Dream Theater re-releases, the limited and edition of the classic live album Once In A Livetime is individually numbered and pressed on coloured vinyl!
We have the boys from the block Cypress Hill with the album Stoned Raiders, on which guest artists like Method Man, MC Ren, King Tee and Redman have contributed.
When you're in the mood for somewhat softer we bring you a re-release of the beautiful Ruth Brown with Rock & Roll, filled with sweet tracks by the Queen of R&B.
Guitars by Mike Oldfield brings you exactly what it says; an album on which Oldfield plays all the music, using only guitars of various types.
Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers added a bit more vocals to the sound of the guitar with their self-titled album.
The third album by Benny Sings named Benny… At Home was a big hit when it was first released. Finally available again on vinyl, the expanded Music On Vinyl edition has two bonus tracks with the first 500 copies pressed on coloured vinyl.
Last we bring more action to the story with two new Original Scores are added to the ever growing At The Movies catalogue: the Score to the long-awaited return of Ghostbusters (2016) and the Score to the record-breaking film Suicide Squad!
Enjoy your weekend,
The MOV crew
