Branford Marsalis Quartet, Hawkwind, Common, Davy Graham, Cypress Hill, Keb' Mo' and Record Store Day

The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul finds the celebrated Branford Marsalis Quartet at a new peak, creating different moods with inspiration and group commitment. It is adventurous and it captures a great band sounding better than ever. As one of the pioneers of the space-rock, Hawkwind recorded a bunch of deep soundscapes, combining the best of different genres. Their debut album Hawkwind can be seen as the highlight of their career, capturing the true spirit of their music.

The American rapper Common brought the Chicago hip-hop scene to a bigger audience by releasing his debut album Can I Borrow a Dollar? The record displayed a unique sound, in which he drops his goofy lyrics and voice cracks. The album is available as a limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on transparent vinyl. The Guitar Player was Davy Graham's first full-length LP, combining his interesting and virtuoso guitar play with some great arrangements. It's an essential album and one of the greatest instrumental acoustic guitar records released in the 1960s.

Latino hip hop group Cypress Hill returned in 2004 with their seventh studio album Till Death Do Us Part. On this album they flirt with reggae, particularly on "What's Your Number" sampling The Clash's "The Guns Of Brixton" plus "Ganja Bus" featuring vocals from Damian Marley. This release is available as a limited 15th-anniversary edition of 2000 numbered copies on colored (gold & black swirled) vinyl.
