Magnum's second self-titled album II truly highlights the band's trademark harmonies and punchy instrumentals. This limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies is pressed on silver coloured vinyl.

Magnum II is the eponymous second studio album by English hard rock band Magnum. Originally released in 1979, the album highlights the band's trademark harmonies and punchy instrumentals very well.
At 87 and with an impressive career spanning more than seven decades, Willie Nelson really needs no introduction. Heroes is a testament to his status as a rebel of country music: a beautiful collection of popular pop-country songs, covers of classic songs from the 30's & 40's and new songs.
A New Chapter of Dub, released in 1982, went on to receive critical acclaim and is considered to be one of the greatest dub albums of all time.

Stain (1993) is the third album by Living Colour. The album features a much heavier and aggressive Living Colour, containing elements of thrash metal and industrial music
Danish indie rock duo The Raveonettes first met in Copenhagen in 2001, after which they quickly began recording their first EP Whip It On. Their first full album Chain Gang of Love followed in 2003, and it quickly gained recognition as lead single “That Great Love Sound” was featured on the soundtrack of FIFA 2004.
Dancepieces, originally released in 1987, presents music that American composer Philip Glass created for two separate dance performances. The first half of the album accompanied the Twyla Tharp Dance Foundation in a show called “In the Upper Room,” and the second piece accompanied choreographer Jerome Robbins' “Glasspieces”.
Upon release in 1971, Africa's Blood was the first record Lee “Scratch” Perry released under his own name, although his band The Upsetters do appear on most of the tracks. There's an undeniable influence from American contemporary R&B, but still Perry's signature dub and reggae fusion shines through.
The Nest is a 2020 thriller film, which tells the story of a family plunged into uncertainty upon relocation from America to England, as the tense isolation of their new home affects them differently. Its soundtrack was arranged by Richard Reed Parry, best known as a member of the indie rock band Arcade Fire, where he plays a wide variety of instruments.
Rob de Nijs, inmiddels een van Nederlands grootste zangers, presenteert zijn allerlaatste album en neemt waardig afscheid van zijn 57 jaar lange carrière als artiest. Het Is Mooi Geweest album bevat een insert met songteksten en is verkrijgbaar op zwart vinyl.
