To those that are planning to go crate digging this weekend, keep an eye out for the following titles, as they are new in stores:
Rufus Wainwright's Want Two is the follow-up album after Want One. It features guest performances by his mother and aunt and includes an insert. Joe Jackson's Summer In The City - Live In New York was recorded in August 1999 over three nights at Joe's Pub in Manhattan and is now available on orange coloured vinyl. David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels, Tony Sales & Hunt Sales formed the band Tin Machine in 1988. Their second and final studio album Tin Machine II is now available on crystal clear & turquoise mixed vinyl. From iconic projects such as Tin Machine, on to iconic soundtracks: Get Carter features music by Roy Budd and classic dialogues from the film, pressed on purple coloured vinyl. For the first time on vinyl is The War Of Art by American Head Charge, which was produced by Rick Rubin. Also available is Eight Miles High by Golden Earring, remastered from the first-generation master tapes and available on red coloured vinyl.
Available on black vinyl are Motown Collected and Pharoah Sanders' Africa.
Motown Collected brings together the biggest names in the rich history of this legendary label. From very early singles to the artists that made Motown a household name for decades to come and the cross-over pop success of the late 70's and 80's. Featuring legendary artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson and The Commodores, as well as gems from the likes of Marv Johnson, Barrett Strong, The Marvelettes and Tom Clay and pop superstars Rick James, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie and Debarge: just a selection of the 33 incredible tracks featured on Motown Collected.
Get Carter, the classic 1971 British gangster movie, starred Michael Caine in a career-defining role as a London gangster out for revenge in the grim North. The iconic soundtrack, recorded on a tiny budget, was written by the jazz prodigy Roy Budd. Performed by Budd and two other jazz musicians Jeff Clyne and Chris Karan, both of whom were part of the Dudley Moore Trio, the distinctive score continues to inspire musicians worldwide.
Originally released by Victory Music in 1991, Tin Machine II is the second and final studio album by Tin Machine. After this album and the supporting tour, frontman David Bowie resumed his solo career. Tin Machine II's reputation has only increased over the years. Uncut magazine placed the album on their list of 50 Great Lost Albums (their list of great albums not currently available for purchase), calling the album "extraordinary".
Eight Miles High was originally released in 1969 by the Dutch rock band The Golden Earring. The album is titled after their cover of The Byrds' “Eight Miles High”, of which the full 19-minute version is included. They recorded the full album at the Olympic Sound Studios in only 5 days time. All audio was remastered from the first-generation Olympic Sound Studios master tapes for this version of Eight Miles High.
Minneapolis-based metal band American Head Charge released The War Of Art in 2001. The War Of Art features the single “Just So You Know” and includes the popular tracks “A Violent Reaction” and “Seamless”.
Praised for his genuine originality, the American-Canadian Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. In 2004 he released Want Two, his fourth studio album. According to Wainwright himself, it is the darker sibling of 2003's Want One - its subject matter concerned with “the world we live in” after Want One focus on the intensely personal.
Summer In The City - Live In New York was recorded in August 1999 over three nights at Joe's Pub in Manhattan. Joe Jackson (piano and vocals) is backed only by longtime bandmates Graham Maby (bass and vocals) and Gary Burke (drums). This creates an intimate setting in which Jackson originals like “Fools In Love”, “It's Different For Girls”, “One More Time” and “Another World” are interspersed with covers of classic pop songs like “For Your Love”, “Eleanor Rigby” and title track “Summer In The City”.
Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive tenor saxophone sounds in jazz, which has earned him royal status amongst free jazz players, critics and collectors. Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, his sound can be as raw and abrasive as it is possible for a saxophonist to produce. His 1987 album Africa is soulful but also searching for a strong groove at the same time. The album is recorded with John Hicks, Curtis Lundy and Idris Muhammad and was an explicit tribute to his late mentor John Coltrane, another giant of jazz.
