Shocking Blue - At Home - 12" LP
Dutch rock band Shocking Blue's influence reached well beyond their generation: their hit "Love Buzz" was the a-side of Nirvana's first single after all, and their biggest hit, "Venus" (1969) became a #1 hit for Bananarama in 1986. In addition to "Venus" and "Love Buzz, At Home features 4 bonus tracks that were previously available as b-sides on various long out of print 45s. In celebration of Record Store Day 2017, this worldwide imited edition of 2500 individually numbered copies is pressed on “Shocking Blue” coloured vinyl for the first time ever.
A Message From The Meters is a three LP set featuring all forty single sides the legendary New Orleans funk band released on Josie, Reprise & Warner Bros. - their entire singles output save for some obscure overseas sides. Most of the material has never been on vinyl since its original 45 release. That means that you not only get every hit along with its hard-to-find B-side but also the rare single mixes, including the especially rare original mono single mixes of the 1968-1971 Josie sides, very few of which have been reissued. These songs represent the mother lode of New Orleans funk, classic tracks like “Sophisticated Cissy,” “Cissy Strut,” “Look-Ka Py Py,” “Chicken Strut,” “Hand Clapping Song,” “Hey Pocky A-Way,” and more. And, with liner notes by Bill Dahl featuring quotes from Nocentelli, Neville, and Porter, this 3 LP set (one LP each of red, yellow, green vinyl) offers probably the best retrospective to date of this enormously influential band. (Limited worldwide release of 1000.)
Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall - 3xLP
Accompanied by Post Pop Depression co-creator Josh Homme and his A-Team, including Queens Of The Stone Age cohorts Dean Fertita and Troy Van Leeuwen, Matt Helders of Arctic Monkeys and journeyman bassist/guitarist/producer Matt Sweeney, Iggy rages through a once in a lifetime set focused almost entirely on the new album and his two 1977 David Bowie-produced classics, The Idiot and Lust For Life. This concert album captures the penultimate performance of the historic limited run of Post Pop Depression shows as Iggy, Homme and crew peeling the paint off the bones of one of the world’s most prestigious venues with an utterly electrifying performance.
