Did you know that Delta Goodrem's first two albums, Innocent Eyes and Mistaken Identity, are now in stores on coloured vinyl after a long, lóng time? The Australian record-breaking artist celebrated the 20th anniversary of her iconic debut album and we thought that deserved a vinyl release! Watch her unbox our brand new releases here.
Other new releases include Cause And Effect by the Norwegian singer-songwriter Maria Mena, Bon Voyage by the McCoy Tyner Trio for the first time as a 2LP-set, Mijn Hart Slaapt Nooit by the late Henny Vrienten, and the second release in the Hardcore Legends series, this time focussing on Critical Mass.
When bassist Jaco Pastorius became a bandmember in 1976, Weather Report entered their most popular phase including the release of Black Market. This sixth album is influenced greatly by African music. Combined with jazz we could describe this genre as 'world fusion'.
Cause And Effect is the fourth studio album by the Norwegian singer-songwriter Maria Mena. The album is described as very personal and honest and was written based on the events from Maria's past. The album features four singles, including the massive hit "All This Time (Pick-Me-Up-Song)".
Tale Spinnin' is the band's fifth studio album. They recorded the album together with Leon "Ndugu" Chancler on drums. It marks a turning point for the band, as they applied more electronic influences on this record. This unknown gem can be considered as one of their finest pieces of music. The songs became more melodic and more structured, yet there is still some of their wild jamming on this record. With funky bass rhythms and deep grooves, it's a mixture of jazz and folk songs. Altogether it's a diverse and groovy work of their jazz fusion.
Sorcerer is the third album by the Second Great Miles Davis Quintet featuring Wayne Shorter on tenor saxophone, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams on drums. It was recorded in May 1967 and contains a darker sound and includes the song "Nothing Like You"with vocals from Bob Dorough.
Oktober - April - Pickering Sessies is een 3LP compilatie van deze twee albums plus een derde plaat, met daarop extra materiaal van de Pickering Sessies, waaronder alternatieve versies van “Midzomernacht” en “Van Veraf Was Het Zo Mooi”. Voor het eerst verschijnen deze nummers op vinyl.

The album Changes was released in 2020 following Ilse DeLange's collaboration with German songwriters and producers. "Changes" was the first single from the album and charted in the Dutch Single Top 100 and was the title track to the TV serie Bauer Sucht Frau. Follow-up singles were "Way Back Home" and the duet "Wrong Direction" with German artist Michael Schulte who participated in the 2018 Eurovison Songfestival.
