NEW RELEASES WEEK 38

Dunkirk, Captain Beefheart, Buddy Holly, The Meters, Ananda Shankar and Woody Guthrie



This week features a powerful collaboration between Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer. The score of Dunkirk turns out to be epic once again and is now released on vinyl. The first pressing is individually numbered and pressed on transparent blue vinyl.

Captain Beefheart's debut album, originally released in 1967, is the most accessible and pop-inflected from his entire catalogue. The 50th Anniversary edition of Safe As Milk is pressed on 'Milky White' vinyl.

This week features a new addition in the limited editions Collected series. Buddy Holly was one of the greatest, most inventive artists in the first wave of Rock & Roll, which the Collected certainly illustrates this. A limited pressing is now available on gold vinyl.

Ananda Shankar was a Bengali musician best known for fusing Western and Eastern musical styles. Ananda Shankar is the debut album by the Indian musician and is a very interesting addition for its influence on world music fusion.

Woodrow Guthrie was an American singer-songwriter who is regarded as one of the most significant figures in American folk music. Dust Bowl Ballads was the most successful album Woody Guthrie made.

There is funk, and there is Funk. This here is of course the latter. Struttin' is the third studio album by the funk group The Meters, of which kept the essential sound of that organic, earthy funk signature by the band.

Have a great weekend,
