Between the Blackheart Man and the Seer

Serj Tankian, Big Country, Black Stone Cherry, Pablo Moses, Bunny Wailer, The Upsetters, Weather Report, Beaver & Krause, and the soundtracks Pokémon Detective Pikachu and Just A Gigolo

Serj Tankian (System of a Down) debuted as a solo musician with his highly anticipated record Elect The Dead. The album gained critical and commercial success upon its release in 2007 and peaked at number 5 in the Billboard 200 chart. This release is available as a limited edition of 2500 individually numbered copies on silver marbled (USA) and gold marbled (EU) coloured vinyl. After two glorious releases the Scottish band Big Country started recording another massive title, known as The Seer. The first album single, "Look Away", was the biggest UK hit of the band (#7) and even reached the number 1 spot in Ireland. This release includes 4 bonus tracks “Song Of The South”, “Look Away (12” Mix), “One Great Thing” (Disco Mix), and “Giant”. Black Stone Cherry's third album Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea offers another amount of their southern rock, with stomping riffs and a country turn mixed all over the album. This release is available as limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on silver coloured vinyl, and the package includes a 6-page booklet.

We're presenting two releases from our brand new Selected Reggae Classics series. The mood and the beats are all in place on Pablo Moses' second album A Song. The innovative album was recorded in Jamaica, using the finest session players of that moment. Many people consider it Moses' masterpiece, and we can't disagree on that statement. Bunny Wailer's Blackheart Man is one of the ultimate Reggae masterpieces from the former member of the Wailers. This album is both comas attractive and critics have been praising this record for many years.

The Upsetters' Scratch the Upsetter Again is filled with top-quality music -- instrumental for the most part -- with the spaciest thing being the sound of a roller-rink organ over reggae. This release available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on orange coloured vinyl. Weather Report's fifth album Tale Spinnin' marks a turning point for the band, as they used more electronic influences compared to their previous albums. This unknown gem can be considered as one of their finest pieces of music. The duo Beaver & Krause were sales representatives for the one and only Robert Moog. They introduced his Moog synthesizers to the public, like on their critical acclaimed album Gandharva. The combination of Mulligan's sax and Beaver's organ resulted in some phenomenal sounds.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu, the iconic face of the global Pokémon phenomenon, which is one of the world's most popular and successful media franchises of all time. The music to the movie is composed by Henry jackman (Captain Phillips, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass). This title is available as a limited edition of 2500 individually numbered copies on white vinyl. The package includes a beautiful movie poster, extensive 4-page booklet + exclusive postcard. To top it all off we added an exclusive full-colour picture of Pikachu on the D-side. The legendary Marlene Dietrich as the madam of a regiment of gigolos, including David Bowie, in post-World War I Berlin. That was the chemistry conceived for the film Just A Gigolo. Capturing the atmosphere of the era, the soundtrack features exclusive contributions from various artists including Bowie, who composed and recorded the composition “Revolutionary Song” between scenes and provided most of the accompaniment. The album is available as a limited edition of 3000 Individually numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl.
