>Dorothy Ashby - Hip Harp/On A Minor Grave 2xLP (Doxy)
A combined reissue of legendary jazz harpist and poly-instrumentalist Dorothy Ashby's
Hip Harp and In A Minor Groove, both released separately in 1958. Both albums feature Frank Wess. Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments.

>Link Wray - Link Wray [Reissue/1971] LP (Future Days Recordings)
Recorded in a shaky makeshift chicken shack in rural Maryland, Link Wray's eponymous 1971 solo album is a compelling and forward-looking piece of honest, handmade Americana. This album is vastly different from his previous work, foregoing instrumentals entirely. Instead, Wray, left with only one lung following a bout with tuberculosis in 1956, gives us his raw voice, full of spit and vinegar, as he blends elements of country, rock 'n' roll, roots, folk and gospel marked with fuzzy guitar and booming percussion.
Stacks Image 7994
>Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus [Reissue/1956] LP (Prestige/Fantasy)
The sixth album Sonny Rollins recorded as the leader of his own band,
Saxophone Colossus features Sonny on saxophone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Max Roach on drums. It was recorded in a single day, the tight knit of the musicians enabling them to record most of the songs in one take, then something of a rarity. 180gm pressing in a Stoughton jacket.

>DJ Harrison
– HazyMoods LP (Stones Throw)
DJ Harrison is Richmond, VA-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Devonne Harris. The son of a radio DJ who introduced him to the world of record collecting, Harris grew up with music, progressing from violin, to high school drum-line, to the Jazz Studies program at Virginia Commonwealth University. Despite his concentration on drumming, he also continued working with other instruments and developed an interest in sampling. Without a computer or sampler, he learned to replay samples on the drums, piano, bass or guitar. DJ Harrison finds himself inspired by local musicians in the Richmond scene that's as diverse and nonexclusive as they come. Amongst the likes of rappers, producers, punks and bluegrass bands, he falls within reach of an expansive pool of musicians to befriend and collaborate with.

>F**k
– Baby Loves A Funny Bunny [Reissue/1996] LP+MP3 (Vampire Blues)
For F**k's 1996 sophomore release, the band got sophomoric: the playing got more playful, and the lyrics got more nonsensical. Think Jonathan Richman's whimsical sincerity battling the obfuscation of Erik Satie:
Baby Loves A Funny Bunny imbues both yin and yang. Includes a vinyl bonus track and a handful of bonus live cuts on an accompanying download.
>Jerry Garcia
– (Compliments Of) [Reissue/1974] LP (ATO)
Jerry Garcia – Reflections [Reissue/1976] LP (ATO)

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. New album by the legendary pianist and composer.

>Jinjer
– King Of Everything LP (Napalm)
“The Ukrainian band Jinjer are a bit of a mash-up of metal sub-genres: they have the cookie monster growl, and sometimes can sound death metal-y, but especially with this third album,
King Of Everything, they have emerged as progressive metal: Odd time signatures and tempo shifts abound, with both heavy distorted (and fast) sections, along with clean-guitar dreamier parts, somewhere between Fates Warning/Dream Theatre and Voivod/Tool.” – EntropyMag
>Elton John
– Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player [Reissue/1973] LP (Mercury)
Elton John

– Dua Lipa LP (WB)
The self-titled debut studio album by English singer and songwriter Dua Lipa has spawned six singles: “New Love,” “Be The One,” “Last Dance,” “Hotter Than Hell,” “Blow Your Mind (Mwah),” and “Lost In Your Light.” Lipa describes the album as “dark pop.” The lyrical themes revolve around her personal views of love, rising above, sex and self-empowerment. Commenting on the album's direction, Lipa said “When I had taken interest with my own music, I would listen to Nelly Furtado, P!nk and Destiny's Child, but as I grew older I found my love for hip-hop … I love the realness behind it, that's why I try to also bind that into the music.”

>Roberto Musci
- Loa Of Music [Reissue/1984] 2xLP (Soave)
The Loa Of Music is the first recording project of Milanese composer and musician Roberto Musci inspired by Voodoo Religion; Vever (the magical voodoo paintings) and Loas, the dark and magic spirits. The deep charm of non-Western music had led him to travel for many years across Africa, India and Asia, studying rhythms, scales, performance and interpretation of the most varied traditional and indigenous music. While abroad made many field recordings and collected ethnic instruments that would then be combined with synthesizers and electronics on The Loa Of Music.
>Mutation

>Kate Nash
– Made Of Bricks [Reissue/2008] LP (Geffen)

>Arne Nordheim
- Electric [1998] 2xLP (Rune Grammophon)
Among the most stunning and musical electronic works ever produced, these five compositions represent the complete electronic works of Norwegian composer Arne Nordheim (1931-2010). They have stood the test of time remarkably well and have been embraced by new generations of influential musicians.

>OOIOO
– Gold & Green [2000] 2xLP+MP3 (Thrill Jockey)

>Elvis Presley
– Golden Records 1 [Reissue/1958] LP (Friday Music)
Limited 180gm audiophile colored vinyl pressing in a gatefold sleeve.

>Quindar
– Hip Mobility LP+MP3 (Butterscotch)
Mikael Jorgensen (of Wilco) joins art historian James Merle Thomas as Quindar.
Hip Mobility, the duo's first full-length LP, is built upon deep research into the audio archives of NASA's golden era, the 1960s and ‘70s. These Space Age recordings – and specifically the tiny, iconic communication beeps known as Quindar Tones – form the basis for Hip Mobility's electronic compositions. Quindar manipulates these archival recordings beyond recognition, samples and plays them as unique instruments, blends them with Jorgensen's vintage analog synths, and sometimes simply plays them back verbatim.
>Rascal Flatts
– Back To Us LP (Big Machine)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The best-selling country vocal group of the past decade returns with their tenth studio album.

>Martin Rev
– Demolition 9 LP (Atlas Réalisations)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Demolition 9 is New York electronic music pioneer Martin Rev's ninth solo album, and first new material since 2009. Comprised of 34 wildly divergent vignettes -- only one of which reaches three minutes in length -- he describes it as autobiographical “yearning for joy and the unattainable perfection of the artistic ideal.” From violent percussion experiments to neo-classical reveries to noir-sleaze abstractions and beyond, Demolition 9 offers a radically non-linear spelunk through the dreams and distractions of one of the 20th century's most influential sonic iconoclasts.
>Rise Against
– Wolves LP (Virgin)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Throughout its career, Rise Against has kept its moral compass steady, using its international punk platform to speak out for social justice. With
The Black Market (2014) follow-up Wolves, the band challenges fans to join them in creating a bold new identity together. The album is about recognizing the power within; it's a primal call for the prey to become the hunters. “In many ways, a Rise Against show is a safe space for our fans," lead singer Tim McIlrath says. “But I realized that I don't only want to create safe spaces, I want to create dangerous spaces where misogyny can't exist, where xenophobia can't exist. I want to create spaces where those sentiments don't have any air, and they suffocate: where those ideas die. Wolves isn't about creating a safe space, it's about creating a space that's dangerous for injustice.”
>Sonny Rollins
- Saxophone Colossus [Reissue/1956] LP (Prestige/Fantasy)
The sixth album Sonny Rollins recorded as the leader of his own band,
Saxophone Colossus features Sonny on saxophone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Max Roach on drums. It was recorded in a single day, the tight knit of the musicians enabling them to record most of the songs in one take, then something of a rarity. 180gm pressing in a Stoughton jacket.

Archive release. Until he was about 20, Texas-born Melvin Sparks was a rhythm & blues guitarist, backing Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye as a member of The Upsetters.

This release documents Melvin's final band just months before his death in 2011.

>Sun Ra
– The Magic City [Reissue/1966] LP (Cosmic Myth)
This 2017 definitive vinyl edition has been remastered with historical and technical notes. Although shorter in scope than side A's magnum opus, the four works on
The Magic City's flip side reflect the same improvisational approach, spatiality, and lack of structure. One session outtake, “Other Worlds,” an alternate version of “Shadow World,” is included as a bonus track on side B.
>Thor

Digitally remastered edition of this vintage live album from classic metal superhero Thor.

– DJ-Kicks 3xLP (!K7)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Next up on
DJ-Kicks is Life And Death label founder DJ Tennis.

>Various Artists
– The Rough Guide To Bottleneck Blues (Second Edition) LP (World Music Network)
Whatever the worldly origins of using a glass or metal object to slide across the strings of a guitar, this style has become famously associated with the blues. For many of the finest early blues practitioners it was the ultimate mode of musical expression as it could emulate the sound of the human voice to great effect. Employing open tunings, guitarists would use anything that they could find to produce the desired effect, ranging from pocketknives to medicine bottles and even bones, but because using a broken bottleneck (without the sharp edges) was probably the most popular method, the term ‘bottleneck’ has endured.

>Gillian Welch
– The Harrow And The Harvest [2011] LP (Acony)
The long-awaited first pressing of Gillian Welch’s
The Harrow & The Harvest was mastered direct from the original tapes through custom Ortofon amplifiers to a Neumann VMS-80 cutting system and plated and pressed on standard-weight audiophile-quality vinyl.

Gun Shy came to life.
>Gary Wilson & The Blind Dates
– Live At CBGB LP (Feeding Tube)
Really, really strange man Gary Wilson gained his reputation with a series of oddball records that could be perfectly summed up as prog-based lounge music. This release documents a live set at New York's CBGBs - one of the few venues in which he was welcome to play. The back up by a pact of ex-New Yorkers called The Blind Dates gives these songs a harder punkier edge. 

>Wolfheart
- Winterborn [2013] 2xLP (Spinefarm)
Death/folk metal band Wolfheart began as a solo project from Finnish musician Tuomas Saukkonen, who has spent time in a half-dozen other metal bands including Black Sun Aeon, Dawn Of Solace, and Before The Dawn. Debut album

>Brenton Wood
– Oogum Boogum [Reissue/1967] LP (Craft Recordings)
Brenton Wood – Baby You Got It [Reissue/1967] LP (Craft Recordings)
Brenton Wood's charmingly unpredictable phrasing and his infectious sense of good times made the smooth uptown soul of "The Oogum Boogum Song" into a hit in 1967. His second album Baby You Got It features the smash hit, "Gimme Little Sign" as well as his signature ballads "Me & You" and "Catch You On The Rebound."

>Link Wray
- Link Wray [Reissue/1971] LP (Future Days Recordings)
Recorded in a shaky makeshift chicken shack in rural Maryland, Link Wray's eponymous 1971 solo album is a compelling and forward-looking piece of honest, handmade Americana. This album is vastly different from his previous work, foregoing instrumentals entirely.

This Week’s Vinyl Exclusives:
>Behold The Brave
– Behold The Brave LP (Withyn)
Born in Chattanooga and residing in Nashville, Behold The Brave has enjoyed regional acclaim as the must-see rock band in Music City. No Country For New Nashville wrote: “Their lead vocalist has a distinct Shannon Hoon (of Blind Melon) meets alt-j bravado to his voice with just a touch of Robert Plant, and their fuzzy bass driven arrangements complement it beautifully.” [Limited color vinyl pressing.]

Tim Buckley – Look At The Fool [Reissue/1974] LP (Real Gone Music)
Limited 180gm vinyl reissues (colored pressings also available) of the last two records Buckley released during his lifetime. Long-time fans decried these records as sellouts, and indeed their soft ‘70s funk feel is jarring to those used to his more adventurous work. But Buckley proves himself to be one helluva R&B singer on these albums, which deserved a much larger audience than they got.

>Rosanne Cash
– King’s Record Shop [Reissue/1987] LP (Sony Legacy)

Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. Sonny Landreth’s unique spin on guitar playing has made him legendary.

Along the way Landreth has continued to develop his vision and his musical voice, growing increasingly original and diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz into increasingly category- blurring musical excursions.
Recorded Live In Lafayette is a perfect showcase of Landreth’s talents and skills; Disc One contains a full acoustic set and Disc Two his full electric set.

Instead of “pushing play”, Moderat works throughout their 90-minute performance to re-work their own music.

>Agnes Obel
– Philharmonics [Reissue/2010] LP (PIAS America)
2010's P
hilharmonics, the debut album from Danish-born, Berlin-based singer-songwriter Agnes Obel, has very much found its own flight. Its sparse, disarmingly beautiful songs have connected past the barriers of culture and language to become a pan-European hit, most notably in Obel's former homeland.
>Otis Redding
– The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads [Reissue/1965] LP (Atlantic)
Otis Redding – The Soul Album [Reissue/1966] LP (Atlantic)
The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads is the third studio album by American soul singer-song writer Otis Redding, released in 1965. The album was one of the first issued by Volt Records, a sub-label of Stax Records, and Redding's first on the new label. The Soul Album followed a year later.
>Rotting Christ
– Theogonia [Reissue/2007] 2xLP (Season Of Mist)
On Rotting Christ's tenth studio album, 2007's
Theogonia, the Greek black metal gods remained faithful to their ancient blackened-gothic style while also materializing as a faster, more aggressive entity. The established melodies of the past are indeed alive but this new apparition is cloaked with deeper atmospheric and epic elements as they recall the history of their homeland.
>Sam & Dave
– Double Dynamite [Reissue/1967] LP (Atlantic)
Perhaps no act epitomized soul music as the secularization of gospel more than Sam & Dave.
Double Dynamite was the second Sam & Dave album to enjoy significant crossover appeal.
>Soundtrack
– True Romance [1993] LP (Real Gone Music)
Limited “pillow feather white & blood red splatter” vinyl edition. Though it was directed by Tony Scott, the 1993 film True Romance displayed all the signature themes and images of its writer, Quentin Tarantino, from its grisly violence to its B-movie homages to its gleeful amorality. And the same could be said of the soundtrack; alongside composer Hans Zimmer’s riff on Carl Orff (which itself was an homage to another violent road movie, Badlands),
True Romance offered a playlist that smacked of Tarantino in its embrace of rockabilly (Charlie Sexton, Chris Isaak), grunge (Soundgarden), honky-tonk (Shelby Lynne), and romantic machismo (Robert Palmer’s take on “[Love Is] The Tender Trap)”.
>Statiqbloom
– Blue Moon Blood LP (Translation Loss)
Statiqbloom is the dark hallucinogenic brainchild of Fade Kainer (Batillus, Tombs, Theologian). Drawing from the grittiness of early industrial and EBM, Statiqbloom combines hard dance beats and haunting electronics with disorienting vocals to create a pulsing raw vision of electronic music.

>STRFKR
– Vault Vol. 2 LP+MP3 (Polyvinyl)
A collection of rare, previously unreleased songs.

>Ten Years After
– Ten Years After [Reissue/1967] LP (Sundazed)

>Throttle Elevator Music
– Area J LP (Wide Hive)
Thrilling sophomore release from the jazz-rock outfit, who bring a garage band attitude to some very tuneful songs. Comprised of Wide Hive label artists (The Wide Hive Players) and featuring saxophonist Kamasi Washington, who just burns on this recording without sacrificing a bit of lyricism.

>Carla Thomas
– Carla [Reissue/1966] LP (Atlantic)
Carla Thomas was to Memphis' Stax Records what Aretha was to Atlantic: the label's reigning matriarch, able to wrap her glorious voice around “B-A-B-Y” and “Let Me Be Good To You,” chart-toppers from the precocious songwriting team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter, as well as R&B standards like Willie Dixon's “Little Red Rooster.” Backed by the Stax house combo, fronted by Booker T. and Steve Cropper, Carla also shows off her storied versatility with knockout renderings of “I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “I Fall To Pieces.”

>Waterparks
– Double Dare LP (Equal Vision)
“This isn't just a ‘pop-punk’ band and I think when people hear the album, it'll be pretty apparent. There are songs that have elements of jazz, hip-hip, pop, indie, electronic, punk, etc.” – Awsten Knight [Limited purple and blue vinyl pressing also available.]
