...because we have two batches of releases this week!
That means a total of 10 vinyl releases, including three Original Soundtracks on colored vinyl and a couple of first time on vinyl releases.
Starting off with Dr. John, also known as The Night Tripper, with his Creole Moon album available for the first time on vinyl. The album marked a return to the sound of his classic mid-70s records, right from the spidery electric piano and testifying back-up vocals.
Moving on to the unique sound of the Derek Trucks Band with the album Roadsongs. Also available for the first time on vinyl, containing over 100 minutes of music from across the band's recording career.
Continuing with the re-issues of a diverse pack of music from The Drifters - The Last Dance For Me, Atomic Rooster with the self-titled album Atomic Rooster, Funkdoobiest - Brothas Doobie and Back Door Men - The Shadows of Knight.
All of them are classic gems and available on 180 gram audiophile vinyl this weekend.
The second batch of this week includes the long awaited The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2. This compilation features 29 songs from beloved movies, television shows, games and radio shows and includes a fold-out poster with all your favorite superheroes and villains.
The soundtrack of Guillermo del Toro's masterpiece Pacific Rim is finally available on vinyl. This universally acclaimed score is composed by Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones) and also features Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello.
Our third soundtrack of the week is Café Society. The album is a wonderful collection of 1930's tracks that compliment this typical Woody Allen film.
Last but not least we present the multi-platinum album Agent Provocateur by Foreigner, featuring the classic hit "I Want To Know What Love Is".
Enjoy your weekend,
The MOV crew

The incipient incarnation of Atomic Rooster with Vincent Crane (organ/vocals), Nick Graham (vocals/bass), and Carl Palmer (drums) was together just long enough to document its 1970 debut. Prior to the last-minute addition of Graham-- the only bassist Atomic Rooster ever had -- the band emerged from the remnants of the then recently defunct Crazy World of Arthur Brown.
Pacific Rim is a 2013 American science fiction monster film directed by Guillermo del Toro, and starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman. The film's score was composed by Ramin Djawadi, with guest musicians Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) and Priscilla Ahn. Ramin Djawadi is best known for his scores for the movies Warcraft [MOVATM118], Iron Man, Prison Break and for HBO's hit series Game of Thrones.
The Shadows of Knight are an American rock band from the Chicago suburbs, formed in the 60s, who play a form of British blues mixed with influences from their native city. Back Door Men is their second album. Both this album and its predecessor, Gloria [MOVLP1752) were released in 1966 and are considered to be seminal garage band albums.
Originally released in 1962, this LP by the fabulous Drifters is a one record "hit parade" all to itself! On it you'll find five smash hits ("Save The Last Dance For Me", "I Count The Tears", "Sweet For My Sweet", "Please Stay" and "Some Kind Of Wonderful") combined with four substantial chart items and three tracks ("Mexican Divorce", "When My Little Girl Is Smiling" and "Jackpot") which were brand new sides at the time.
Originally released in 1995, Brothas Doobie is the second album by the Los Angeles-based Latino rap group Funkdoobiest. The album contains all the original members Son Doobie (Jason Vasquez), DJ Ralph M (Ralph Medrano) and Tomahawk Funk (Tyrone Pacheco) and contains the famous and controversial track "Superhoes".
Agent Provocateur is the fifth studio album by American/British rock band Foreigner, originally released in December 1984. The album reached the number one spot in the album charts in the United Kingdom, and it reached the top 5 in the United States.
As his wife Susan Tedeschi joined Derek Trucks later in 2010 for the Derek Trucks-Susan Tedeschi Band, this double live album Roadsongs might just be the last album for this version of the Derek Trucks Band. Recorded in support of 2009's Grammy-winning album Already Free [MOVLP1395], this set contains over 100 minutes of music from across his recording career.
At the end of the previous millennium, Dr. John found himself having recorded not a single album of straight up New Orleans R&B in almost a decade. He soon rectified that with Creole Moon in 2001. This personal interpretation of New Orleans contains 14 slabs of Crescent City soul soaked in the daily life in his beloved city of birth.
New York in the 30s. As he has more and more trouble putting up with his bickering parents, his gangster brother and the family jewelry store, Bobby Dorfman feels like he needs a change of scenery. He decides to go and try his luck in Hollywood where his high-powered agent uncle Phil hires him as an errand boy. In Hollywood he soon falls in love but unfortunately the girl has a boyfriend. Bobby settles for friendship – up until the day the girl knocks at his door, telling him her boyfriend just broke up with her. All of a sudden Bobby's life takes a new turn, and a very romantic one at that.
