“Dirty Diamonds” is Alice Cooper like you haven’t heard him ever since “School’s Out”. The master of shock rock channels his 70s roots and returns to the classic, dirty rock ’n’ roll.

The album is now available as a strictly limited and numbered gatefold-edition on heavyweight red vinyl.
Hidden West Coast gem that appeals to the hippies, the Balearic heads and Yacht Rock fans alike. Dreamy campfire boogies and funky folk numbers that wouldn't be out of place at a daytime disco. Lovingly re-issued by the mighty Be With Records, this is an absolute must-have for any record lover!
'Tell Her She's Lovely' is the standout track on an LP that's bursting with great little groovers and super baroque belters.

Raw, soulful blues-rock from this duo from Akron, Ohio. This is the awesome second album (their first in the UK) from Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney. With a stripped back guitar, drums and vocal line up this is top notch blues, set apart by Auerbach's distinctive fuzz guitar. Recommended.
