The Grammy award-winning violinist and conductor Joshua Bell recorded his new album Bruch: Scottish Fantasy with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. By conducting the piece he took the freedom to work on all the little details. The release package includes a 4-page booklet with pictures and liner notes. One of the founding figures of the Jamaican music industry, Arthur 'Duke' Reid, produced many of the classics of the ska, rock steady and early reggae eras. And when, in the mid-1970s, dub music took hold, he was able to call upon one of the most talented soundmen in the business, Errol Brown. Brown created some of the finest dub mixes of the period, a dozen of which were gathered on Treasure Dub Vol. 1 and Treasure Dub Vol. 2, two of the most acclaimed collections from the golden age of reggae.

The brilliant Broadway musical Chicago, first seen in 1975, got into a new chapter with Thomas Z. Shepard's sparkling recording of the wonderful 1997 London company. The 20th anniversary edition of Chicago The 1997 Musical London Cast is available on vinyl for the first time and available as a pressing of 500 numbered copies is available on red vinyl. The soundtrack of The Man with the Iron Fists is a fantastic mix between hip hop, neo-soul, rock and R&B. Different members of the Wu-Tang Clan such as Ghostface Killah, U-God, Method Man and RZA features on this album. Other artists includes The Black Keys, BADBADNOTGOOD, Kanye West and Pusha T. The Man with the Iron Fists is available as a limited edition of 750 Individually numbered copies on silver vinyl.

Marc Moulin (1942 - 2008) was a Belgian musician and journalist. In the early seventies he was the leader of the Jazz-Rock group Placebo. Moulin was one of Belgium's jazz legends, making jazz-influenced records for over 30 years. Marc Moulin's three Placebo albums (1973, Ball of Eyes & Placebo) are the 'Holy Grail' for the rare groove crowd, a sector of music fans who love that unique 70s style of cool.

PLACEBO - 1973

The 1973 album continues in the same vein as Ball of Eyes, though it's definitely more funky and head boppin' than the debut. The real ear grabber is the superb Moog soloing by Moulin. Placebo is grooving your socks off in the first half of the album and  a more concentrated jazzy swing can be found on the second half.  Original copies of 1973 are in short supply and overwhelming demand, making this official reissue a much needed one!

PLACEBO - PLACEBO

Placebo's eponymous third album is glossy, elaborate Benelux Jazz-Rock which could be labelled Library music as well - having themes that could easily accompany a cult 70's detective series. Its seductive rhythms, combined with tasteful arrangements, make this LP difficult to walk away from. The grooves go deeper compared to their earlier works and the solos are intense and unique.

Exclusive
PLACEBO - BALL OF EYES

Placebo's debut LP Ball of Eyes is a remarkably focused Soul Jazz record, without the experimentation or Free Jazz moments which were still in vogue during the first half of the '70s. Excellent covers of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues" and Sam & Dave's "You Got Me Hummin'" as well as his own compositions make Ball Of Eyes a perfect example of the genius of Marc Moulin and his incredible band.
