This Collected limited edition is pressed on purple vinyl, includes a 4-page booklet, and is packed in a limited gatefold embossed "guitar" sleeve.

The Living End is an Australian alternative punk/rock band, formed in 1994. In 2000 they released their second album Roll On which showed their native rock influences, inspired by the 80s Pub Rock era. This long out-of-print album is now available again on individually numbered red vinyl.

Simple Pleasure by English alternative band Tindersticks was released in 2004. Newly influenced by soul and jazz music, the band recorded snappier and lighter songs as opposed to their earlier albums. The Music On Vinyl Expanded vinyl edition features the original 9 songs on the first LP and 12 bonus tracks on the second LP, including demos and a Adrian Sherwood remix.

Straight from "The Golden Era of Hip Hop" comes the Here Come The Lords debut album from The Lords Of The Undergound produced by Marley Marl, K-Def and the hip-hop trio. The Lords received a BET award for "Best Rap Group of 1993". "Chief Rocka" became their most successful single and was sampled by The Notorious B.I.G. We are celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2018, therefore Here Come The Lords is pressed on green vinyl in a limited run of 1.000 individually numbered copies.

The King Of Rock and Soul's mighty voice performs songs from De Dijk's earlier repertoire, translated from Dutch into English. Hold On Tight is back by popular demand and repressed in a limited run of 500 copies on yellow vinyl.
