East, West, Vinyl's Best



Let's kick this weekly release update off with the iconic blues harmonica player and singer Paul Butterfield. In 1966 he released the classic East West with his Butterfield Blues Band. It's one of the outstanding albums in which they integrated psychedelic rock in traditional blues music. The album proved to be one of the essential albums in the blues-rock movement of the '60s. The Oxford based alternative rock band Swervedriver released their third studio album Ejector Seat Reservation in 1995. Despite the little promotion and disappointing sales the album is widely considered as one of their strongest records. The Ejector Seat Reservation package includes a 4-page booklet and is available as a first pressing of 2.500 individually numbered copies on coloured (silver & black mixed) vinyl. 36 Crazyfists is drifting back to their homeland Alaska with their second album A Snow Capped Romance. Their mix of metalcore, post-hardcore and rock is an interesting one, and done perfectly on this record. A Snow Capped Romance is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on red vinyl.

The German speed metal band Warrant released their debut LP The Enforcer back in 1985. It's one of those records which was pushed away by the many albums that appeared at that time in the metal circuit, but is really worth to have in your collection. They're defining speed metal again in the 3/4 minute songs. The Enforcer is available as a limited edition of 666 Individually numbered copies on coloured (solid blue, black & white mixed) vinyl. The British singer/musician Steve Overland is active in the music industry for over 30 years, both as a member of different bands as in his own group Overland. His third solo album Epic is shortly released after recording with his other project, FM.  The album is available as a limited edition of 500 Individually numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl. Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation) is the 2012 album by the Counting Crows. An album filled with their favorite covers of artists as diverse as Teenage Fanclub, Gram Parsons and Fairport Convention. The Underwater Sunshine vinyl package includes printed innersleeves with liner notes and is available as a limited pressing of 1.000 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl. We also release the score Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL composed to the latest Tomb Raider movie.
