Including Golden Earring, The Rezillos, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the new compilation album New Wave Of The 80's Collected amongst others
Which decade brought us the best music has been an ongoing discussion for years, but we're sure that the brand-new compilation album New Wave Of The 80's Collected makes a great argument for the Eighties. From The Cure, XTC, Duran Duran, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Simple Minds, this 2LP features many of the artists that defined the genre. A limited edition is now in stores, so make sure to pick up a copy this weekend.
While digging for new records, keep an eye out for our additional new releases: The Rezillos Can't Stand The Rezillos, the acclaimed debut album produced by the legendary Bob Clearmountain; A remastered 45th anniversary edition of Grab It For A Second by Golden Earring, produced by none less than Jimmy Iovine; and the debut album Into The Depths Of Sorrow by the epic doom metal band Solitude Aeturnus.
And even though the summer of love is almost over... We're excited that the classic soundtrack for Call My By Your Name is now in stores on purple coloured vinyl, housed in a sleeve with rainbow (!) laminate finish.
Check out the full list of new releases below - Happy collecting!
After 1976's Contraband, Golden Earring continued in a straightforward hard rock direction on Grab It For A Second (1978). Working with legendary producer Jimmy Iovine (U2, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Stevie Nicks, Dire Straits, Patti Smith), this was the band's final album featuring guitarist Eelco Gelling.
Can't Stand The Rezillos is the debut studio album by Edinburgh-based punk band the Rezillos and was released in 1978. The album includes the UK top twenty hit "Top Of The Pops", as well as several cover versions of 1960s songs: "Glad All Over" (Dave Clark Five), "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight" (Fleetwood Mac), and "I Like It" (Gerry and the Pacemakers). It was produced by the acclaimed Bob Clearmountain in collaboration with Tony Bongiovi.
Back for Good is the seventh studio album and first comeback album by German duo Modern Talking, originally released in 1998, following the reunion of the duo after a hiatus of over 10 years.
Solitude Aeturnus is an American epic doom metal band from Arlington, Texas. Founded by John Perez in early 1987. In 1990 the band entered the Dallas Sound Lab to record Into The Depths Of Sorrow. The whole album was recorded for a sum of $3000 and done in seven days including the remix.
Stevie Ray Vaughan's third studio album Soul To Soul was released in 1985, just two years after his massive debut Texas Flood. Moving more into a soulful R&B-tinged blues sound, Stevie included two new band members on keyboard and saxophone for Soul To Soul.
Call Me By Your Name, the multiple-award-winning and critically acclaimed film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the novel by André Aciman. Guadagnino found himself resonating with Sufjan Stevens' lyricism through his work and initially asked Stevens to record an original song. Eventually, Stevens contributed three songs to the soundtrack.
The double album New Wave Of The 80's Collected features artists that defined the sound of a decade, including U2, XTC, Propaganda, Tears For Fears, China Crisis, The Cure, Talk Talk, ABC, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Human League, Duran Duran, Thompson Twins, Simple Minds, Marillion and many more.
