'From Her To Eternity' was the debut record for Cave in his olden days as an ex-member of the post-punk meanies the Birthday Party and the founder of the Bad Seeds. Based around his own song-writing and contributions from co-founder Mick Harvey (who sadly didn't get his own nameplate), the record saw Cave focusing on lyricism and moments of musical reflection that weren't seen in the forthright and cruel punk attacks of the Birthday Party.
The Zombies - Oydessey & Oracle (picture disc) RSD 2018
First ever picture disc release of this Rolling Stone Top 100 album of all-time. All surviing original members completed a 50th anniversary tour of the album last year and remains a very active touring entity into 2018. The Zombies are three-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame finalists.
In 1976, superstars Rod Stewart / Faces were rewarded by their label Warner Bros. with their first greatest hits album, Snakes and Ladders: The Best of Faces. Featuring the classic line-up of Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones), Kenney Jones (Small Faces, The Who, The Law), Ronnie Lane (Small Faces), Ian McLagan (Small Faces, Bonnie Raitt) and Tetsu Yamamuchi, the Snakes and Ladders album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning gold and platinum career.
With hard pub-rock classics like Stay With Me and Around the Plynth and brilliant rock standards like Ooh La La and Flying, the Snakes and Ladders album would go on to become one of the best-selling albums in their extensive catalog. The long out of print original version of this greatest hits masterpiece also includes the only appearance of the super rare Pineapple and the Monkey. Dig deeper into the grooves and there you find even more rock and blues belters like the masterful Miss Judy’s Farm, the powerful rocker Had Me a Real Good Time, plus the English folk-rock ballad Sweet Lady Mary, making Snakes and Ladders / The Best of Faces one of the finest overviews ever of this sorely missed supergroup.
Exclusive to RSD2020, Demon Records celebrates the 10th anniversary of 'Turn Ons'.The Hotrats (aka Supergrass's Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey) first released this collection of covers in 2010 and it has gone on to become a fan favourite.

A first for anyone, we were granted full access to the separate tracks of a Ned Doheny masterpiece. Accordingly, Claremont 56 maestro Paul "Mudd" Murphy was selected to preside over the full stems for Ned's classic "Think Like A Lover" and asked to deliver one of his famed remixes. His gentle disco rework blew us all away. An extended triumph of strung out balearic bliss, it is presented here on vinyl as a limited edition of 500 copies, complete with the dub on the flip. With mastering handled by the wonderful Simon Francis - engineer for both Claremont 56 and Be With - you know this sounds every bit as good as it feels. Housed in a beautifully produced disco sleeve, designed by Mudd himself, these will not be around for long. Just in time for Spring/Summer parties and festivals, ensure your set is flavoured with this slow-motion, string-drenched gift.
Nothing Is Easy – Live At The Isle Of Wight 1970 features Jethro Tull, a few years prior to their superstardom, playing heavy blues-rock on what would later be remembered as one of the most important festivals in rock music history. Taking the stage at the so-called “British Woodstock” was a milestone to the young band surrounding mastermind Ian Anderson, with a setlist that featured classics like My Sunday Feeling, Bourée and Nothing Is Easy. The unforgettable live show is now available via earMUSIC on strictly numbered heavyweight vinyl.
Singles collection from the mighty Who! Remastered at half-speed at Abbey Road, so it hasn't ever sounded better! All the killer just from 'I Can't Explain', to 'My Generation', 'Pinball Wizard', and more!
More Songs About Buildings And Food was the second Talking Heads album, originally released in 1978 and the first to feature Brian Eno in the production chair. Eno was a perfect fit for Talking Heads, teasing out of them a more dance and funk inspired sound with the rhythm section of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth taking a keener role behind David Byrne's trademark yelp.
The Very Best Of The Everly Brothers is a reminder to all of us as to what exactly constitutes real music.This 31-track collection on a double LP (available on the vinyl format for the first time) serves to remind us that The Everly Brothers were indeed one of a kind. We are beyond lucky to have this music to remember them.
Crosby's 1971 masterpiece. In the company of Joni, most of the Dead, most of Jefferson Airplane as well as Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, Crosby fashioned a beautiful set of wasted west coast rock, stunning harmony vocals, smoked out laziness, laurel canyon coke genius in epics like Cowboy Movie, the beautiful Traction in the Rain, accapella voice tracks giving Starsailor Tim Buckley a run for his money. A record rooted in 70's California but still sounding mighty fine all these years later. 180 gm vinyl pressing.
The sophomore LP from serial establishment-botherers Rage Against The Machine gets reissued. Given that the title of 1996’s Evil Empire refers to Reaganite slander of the Soviet Union and ‘Bulls On Parade’ deals with violence and wall-building at the U.S.-Mexican border, this feels like a timely re-pressing from Epic Records. This is a Rage record so even if you've not heard it before you can probably guess what it sounds like.
Sandie Shaw was one of the most successful British female singers of the 1960s, forever famous for winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1967 with "Puppet On A String". She dominated the UK charts with a flood of pop hits during the late 1960s - including three number one singles - yet ventured into a funkier direction with this her fifth studio album. This was Shaw's first time producing an album herself and she chose songs by alternative artists from the 1960s with covers of tracks by The Beatles, Rufus Thomas, Lovin' Spoonful, Dr.John, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and what, on release in 1969, was the first ever cover of a Led Zeppelin song (Your Time Is Gonna Come).
Her sensual voice and a strong backing band, featuring Ian Wallace of King Crimson on drums, gives these classic tunes a new lease of life.This release features the long lost mono mix of the original album plus a second disc of bonus material from the same sessions, including versions of Paul McCartney's 'Junk' and 'Frank Mills' from the Broadway show Hair, collected together on vinyl for the first time.
Recorded at Sound Techniques Studio in Chelsea during 1972, John Martyn's seminal album 'Solid Air' was originally released in February 1973 and is now available again on vinyl. Arguably John Martyn's masterpiece. A stunning album blending folk, jazz and blues to startling effect and featuring such killer tracks as 'Over the Hill', 'May You Never', the beautiful title track and his stunning reading of Skip James' 'I'd Rather be the Devil'.
Lou Reed's second solo album Transformer is an album that everyone should own. It was the moment when the seventies poster boy for shock-rock therapy found a balance between unbelievably catchy tunes and proto punk reportage from the gutters of Manhattan. It includes Walk on the Wild Side, Perfect Day and Satellite of Love. It was produced and features David Bowie and Mick Ronson.
Scott Walker & The Walker Brothers - No Regrets (The Best Of)
First time on vinyl since 1992 for this stunning ‘Best of’. It’s now a 2LP set on 180gram vinyl.

One of the first pop albums to become a cult classic, Love's 1967 masterpiece, Forever Changes', is the pinnacle of the LA freak scene. Singer / songwriter Arthur Lee's lyrics are increasingly fragmentary and paranoid, foreshadowing the band's eventual drug-fueled collapse. Yet these drop-dead hip tunes are set in arrangements featuring Herb Alpert-style mariachi horns, lush middle-of-the-road strings, and other tropes of the easy listening scene, creating a more unsettling sense of tension than if the songs were given the usual heavy rock instrumentation. Every single track is a stone classic, forever changes belongs high on any halfway serious list of the greatest pop albums of the '60s.
A Little Bit Of Somethin’ is a quietly majestic gem. Brimming with Guerrero’s horizontal “loose grooves”, these brief but innovative instrumentals demonstrate a rich variety and, as such, comprise an LP that is aptly titled. An enchanting start-to-finish listen, it was instantly regarded as essential upon release via Mo Wax in 2000. It has aged remarkably well.
Super Furry Animals - Guerrilla (20th Anniversary Edition)
Super Furry Animals third album Guerilla is 20 years old. To celebrate its birthday we have an expanded reissue of the original album which includes a huge 25 bonus tracks. This was the album with the singles Northern Lites and Fire In My Heart, the latter being the one of the band’s more tender moments.
Silver & Gold is the twenty-fourth studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released on April 25, 2000. Many of these songs were written in the late 1990s, though the song "Silver & Gold," which by his own estimation, he had been trying to get "the take" for around ten years, was written in 1981.
