The Dutch psych-beat band Ro-D-Ys released Just Fancy in 1967. Now it is available on coloured vinyl for the first time.

Need something more soothing? Maybe something classical? Check out Songs of Comfort and Hope, recorded by Yo-Yo Ma and his frequent collaborator Kathryn Stott during the COVID-19 lockdown. This brand new 2021 album is available on black vinyl now.
And then there are two new soundtrack releases this week. Firstly, the soundtrack to the 1998 Italian drama film The Legend of 1900, which was composed by the incomparable Ennio Morricone, is now available as a limited edition of 5000 numbered copies on smoke coloured vinyl. And secondly, we've got Jeff Russo's soundtrack to the first season of the fantastic Netflix series Fargo. Based on Joel & Ethan Coen's 1996 movie of the same name, this soundtrack is now available as a limited edition of 666 individually numbered copies on transparent green vinyl.
Songs of Comfort & Hope is inspired by the series of recorded-at-home musical offerings that Yo-Yo Ma began sharing in the first days of the COVID-19 lockdown in the United States. Throughout the spring and summer, Ma's #SongsofComfort grew from a self-shot video of Antonín Dvořák's “Goin' Home” into a worldwide effort that has reached more than 20 million people.
Nada Surf are an American alternative rock band formed in the 1990s in New York. High/Low is their debut studio album, released in 1996 to positive reviews. It contains the smash hit single “Popular”, which reached the top 10 in several countries and remains a classic song among fans of alternative music.
Rydim Driven is the fifth studio album by Jamaican singer Jimmy Riley, produced by legendary production duo Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. Way too often overlooked, this record features Riley's signature mix of reggae, ska and rocksteady.
RO-D-YS was a Dutch beat psych-beat and pop rock band that was active in the 1960s. The band's original lineup consisted of Harry Rijnbergen on vocals and guitar, Joop Hulzebos on guitar and keys, Wiechert Kenter on bass, trumpet and vibraphone and Berend Groen on drums. This album is part of the new “Behind The Dykes” series where we unearth rare and sought-after albums from Holland.
What Did You Expect from The Vaccines? is the debut studio album by English indie rock band The Vaccines. It was released on 11 March 2011, entering the UK Albums Chart at #4 and going on to become the biggest-selling debut by a band in 2011. The LP package contains an exclusive, brand new insert + a free download coupon for the original album + unreleased What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? demos album.
Live is a double live album released by Dutch rock band Golden Earring in 1977. With its long, spun out versions of classic Golden Earring songs (lasting between 5 and 12 minutes each), this record is vastly different than other live registrations by the band.
Fargo is a fantastic dark comedy-crime drama television series created and written by Noah Hawley and inspired by Joel & Ethan Coen's 1996 movie of the same name. Both Coen brothers serve as executive producers on the series. The show stars Martin Freeman (The Hobbit trilogy), Billy Bob Thornton, Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) and more. The soundtrack features selections from the show's original music composed by Jeff Russo
The Legend of 1900 (Italian: La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano, The Legend of the Pianist on the Ocean) is a 1998 Italian drama film directed by Giuseppe Tornatore and starring Tim Roth, Pruitt Taylor Vince, and Mélanie Thierry. The film is inspired by Novecento, a monologue by Alessandro Baricco. The Legend Of 1900 was nominated for a variety of awards worldwide, winning several for its soundtrack.
