Our journey into 2013...

...starts out quite enjoyably, with some top releases in great numbers!
PASSENGER - ALL THE LITTLE LIGHTS
Passenger - All The Little Lights Music On Vinyl LPIt's been a remarkable journey for Mike Rosenberg, the singer songwriter behind Passenger. A journey that has inspired some of the finest songwriting you'll hear anywhere, whether on a street corner, a sweaty rock'n'roll room or a concert stage. Indeed, Mike honed his craft on the street busking, singing songs for spare change, all the while travelling and impressing crowds from the UK (where he played with the likes of Jools Holland and Ed Sheeran) to Australia, where he recorded All The Little Lights. All The Little Lights shows this amazing singer loving life to the fullest. The second record in this double LP is an acoustic performance.

JANNE SCHRA - JANNE SCHRA
Janne Schra - Janne Schra Music On Vinyl LPJanne Schra used to be lead singer in the band Room Eleven, a big name in the Dutch music scene. The albums Six White Russians and Mmm Gumbo sold over 100.000 copies combined. The singles "Hey Hey Hey", "Bitch" and "Lovely Morning" were picked up by various radio stations. As from 2012, Janne started performing under her own name and now finally releases her debut solo album. On Janne Schra, she works with a variety of skilled musicians, producers and writers. For example M. Ward, Torre Florim of Dutch band De Staat, Tobias Fröberg who has previously worked for Ane Brun and Martijn Groeneveld who works with Blaudzun. Most songs on the album are sensitive and Janne's voice perfectly fits this ambiance. She is a regular guest on national Dutch radio station 3FM. Ever since she performed her version of "One Day (Reckoning Song)" she immediately connected with a bigger audience. Therefore, this song is included as a bonus track on this album. The album Janne Schra is a an absolute must for fans of Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Aimee Mann and Suzanne Vega.

CHET BAKER - SHE WAS TOO GOOD TO ME
CChet Baker - She was too good to me Music On Vinyl LPhet Baker was one of the most important representatives of the West Coast Cool Jazz movement. She Was Too Good To Me was released in 1974 on Creed Taylor's CTI label after a 4 year absence from the scene. And what a comeback: excellent vocal Cool Jazz tunes are interlude with instrumental goodness from the undisputed master of the trumpet.

PERE UBU - MODERN DANCE
Pere Ubu - Modern Dance Music ON vinyl LPWeird sounds, frantic Rock 'n Roll riffs, cartoony vocals and a typical garage sound contribute to a landmark album in experimental Rock music. With a sound placed somewhere between Velvet Underground, Sex Pistols and The Residents, this crazy band from Cleveland delivers an extraterrestrial experience. We are inclined to agree with Allmusic's opinion that: "...you soon realize that this is punk rock unlike any you've ever heard."

PROCOL HARUM - IN CONCERT WITH THE EDMONTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Procol Harum in concert Music On vinyl LPIn Concert With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is an extraordinary Procol Harum record. Being one of the very few times the band ever played with a choir and orchestra, the 3000-strong audience were witness to a unique spectacle which thankfully is preserved by this high quality recording. 52 musicians, 24 singers and a regiment of sound, lightning, stage and special effects specialists ensured the impact of the show was felt both in and outside the concert building of Edmonton, Canada; with the album reaching the top 5 in the US album charts.

STEPPENWOLF - STEPPENWOLF
Steppenwolf Music On Vinyl LPThe eponymous debut album of Steppenwolf cemented a fine foundation for their careers as the song "Born To Be Wild" launched the popularity of the band into the stratosphere virtually overnight. The biker anthem coined the term 'Heavy Metal' and coloured the airwaves in that hot summer of 1968. It was rightfully featured in the ultimate road movie Easy Rider, emitting perfectly the atmosphere of the story. Other highlights on the album include "A Girl I Knew" and "Ostrich" alongside cover versions of Don Covay's "Sookie Sookie" and Willie Dixon's "Hoochie Coochie Man".
