This week we're bringing you the best of blues, soundtracks and classic music. Eugene McDaniels released his epic album Headless Heroes Of The Apocalypse back in 1971. The jazz band which is backing McDaniel adds swing to all of the incredible arrangements found on this record. The album has been prized and sampled by the hip-hop community dozens of times. This year we're celebrating the 50th anniversary of some blues classics. The first one is Eddie Boyd's 7936 South Rhodes, which was recorded with three members of the early line-up of Fleetwood Mac: Peter Green (guitar), John McVie (bass), and Mick Fleetwood (drums). This title is available as 1.000 individually numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl. The second record is Fleetwood Mac's self-titled debut album, one of the highlights of the late British Blues movement. The record is available as 2.000 individually numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl.

We have some fascinating soundtracks in store for you this week. Alexander is the original film score of the film by the same name, and created by Greek electronic composer Vangelis. The soundtrack received the Public Choice Award at the 2005 World Soundtrack Academy. Alexander is available on vinyl for the first time as a limited edition of 1.500 individually numbered copies on red vinyl. The soundtrack to Puzzle is composed by A Winged Victory for the Sullen member Dustin O'Halloran. The Puzzle package includes a free download coupon + insert and is available as a first pressing of 1.000 numbered copies on yellow vinyl. Slender Man features the film's original music composed by Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Westworld, Iron Man) and Brandon Campbell (The Thinning). The package contains a mini-poster and you'll find secret inscriptions in the run-out groove. The album is available as a limited Halloween edition of 666 numbered copies on coloured (transparent & black swirled) vinyl.

Our last three recording are the Early Piano Works, recorded by Reinbert de Leeuw, one of the best Erik Satie performers. During the seventies, he applied himself with great success to the interpretation of the music of the 'forgotten' composer. In celebration of the 80th Birthday of Reinbert de Leeuw all three volumes of his Early Piano Works are now available again on vinyl, including liner notes about Erik Satie.

EDDIE BOYD WITH PETER GREEN'S FLEETWOOD MAC - 7936 SOUTH RHODES

Blues pianist Eddie Boyd's 7936 South Rhodes was recorded in London in January 1968 with three members of the early line-up of Fleetwood Mac: Peter Green (guitar), John McVie (bass), and Mick Fleetwood (drums). It's a tantalizing setting for Boyd's straight up Chicago piano Blues, going heavier on the slow-to-mid-tempo numbers than the high-spirited ones.
