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.
Combining the lulling ambience of shoegaze with the iconic melodies and vocal prowess of classic American country music, enigmatic outlaw cowboy - Orville Peck, croons love and loss from the badlands of North America. The resulting sound is one completely his own, taking the listener down dusty rose-colored desert highways, through a world where worn out gamblers, aloof road-dogs and lovesick hustlers drift in and out of his masked gaze.
Orville’s debut album, Pony, delivers a diverse collection of stories that sing of heartbreak, revenge and the unrelenting tug of the cowboy ethos. Warm lap steel guitars and echoing drums move through dreamy ballads, campfire lullabies and sometimes frantic buzzsaw tunes, all the while paying homage to his country music roots.
There's no-one quite like Hasil - deranged rock 'n' twang from the backwoods - The Cramps loved him so much they covered his songs, and quite right too! If you like music from the fringes, you need Adkins in your life!
London-based John Myrtle releases his charming debut album Myrtle Soup, out now on indie label Sad Club Records (BUGS, Clara Mann, nudista).

The album includes single cuts ‘Get Her Off My Mind’ and ‘How Can You Tell If You Love Her?’, which garnered support from the likes of BBC 6’s Marc Riley & Radcliffe and Maconie, as well as DIY & So Young Magazine.

M Ward - End of Amnesia (20th Anniversary Edition) RSD21
20th anniversary reissue of M. Ward's second album "End of Amnesia" Remastered from the original mixes especially for vinyl.
1st artist approved vinyl pressing ï Double LP gatefold jacket with expanded artwork from the original cover artist.
Limited to 2000 copies world wide pressed on clear vinyl M.Ward's second solo enterprise verifies the artist as one of those few songwriters who stand between the cracks of time, where he spins a hallucinatory, new universe out of old-world roots. Indeed, there's a real down-home, unpolished luster to End of Amnesia, both in execution and in songwriting, that gives it a timeless, old-fashioned pallor. And yet there's also something just slightly off in the songs, a strange, disembodied quality that seems to come at least partly from an ulterior place, be it real or imagined.
One of the Founding Fathers of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Little Richard (born Richard Penniman) was one of the most influential entertainers in popular music history, best known for his over-the-top performances at the piano and his string of instantly recognizable hit songs, including Tutti Frutti, Good Golly Miss Molly and Lucille. Pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Angel Dream RSD 2021
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of She’s The One, we are releasing a remixed, remastered and re-imagined version of this album. The original album included several songs that were left off the original Wildflowers album (recently included as the All The Rest disc in the Wildflowers & All The Rest re-issue), so this re-release is an appropriate ending to the campaign celebrating the Wildflowers-era. Ryan Ulyate (Tom’s long time engineer and producer) has remixed the audio, and the song selection is designed to work as a TPHB album, rather than a soundtrack album.
Four unreleased tracks have been added; the rocker “105 Degrees” (written by Petty), a cover of JJ Cale’s “13 Days”, “One of Life’s Little Mysteries” (another Petty original), and an instrumental (“French Disconnection”) in the same vein as the instrumentals on the original album. An extended version of “Supernatural Radio” is also included. The new title is a reference to one of the stand out tracks on the album, for which there will be a video. The new album will have brand new artwork, and this version will replace the existing physical versions of She’s The One, although the original release will remain on the DSP’s (in addition to “Angel Dream” being available digitally).
'Grievous Angel' features much of the same band that played on his solo debut, and they perform with the same effortless grace and authority (especially guitarist James Burton and fiddler Byron Berline). Parsons still had plenty of gems on hand from more productive days, such as 'Brass Buttons' and 'Hickory Wind'. He also proved to be a shrewd judge of other people's material as always; Tom T Hall's 'I Can't Dance' and the Louvin Brothers's 'Cash on the Barrelhead.' for example. As a vocal duo, Parsons and Emmylou Harris only improved on this set, turning in a version of 'Love Hurts' so quietly impassioned and delicately beautiful that it's enough to make you forget Roy Orbison ever recorded it.
Manchester darling Songs for Walter returns with his second LP, An Endless Summer Daze.
Songs for Walter, otherwise known as Manchester-based songwriter Laurie Hulme, is rapidly becoming one of the city’s unsung heroes thanks to his seemingly whimsical, but often deeply touching brand of folk-pop.
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.
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.
The Unrighteous Brothers - Unchained Melody RSD 2020
Breakthrough Masked Country Artist Orville Peck joins Paul Cauthen for two jukebox classics. As The Unrighteous Brothers, the duo of hardcore troubadours make an updated classic that showcases both artists' booming baritone. Produced by Butch Walker and Beau Bedford, the songs were cut in Nashville at the legendary RCA Studio A. Available for the first time on any physical format.
On Sailor–the last Steve Miller Band album featuring original members Boz “Lido Shuffle” Scaggs and keyboardist Jim Peterman–the group splits their affection for white blues and psychedelic rock more or less down the middle, and tosses in a couple of Dylan/Stones/Beach Boys homages while they’re at it. All of which is to say they’re all over the damn place, but still manage to turn what might have been an impossibly diffuse LP into a charmer.
Elvis Presley - 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong
50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong: Elvis' Gold Records, Volume 2 (or simply known as, Elvis' Gold Records, Volume 2) is the fourth compilation album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley, issued by RCA Victor in November 1959. It is a compilation of hit singles released in 1958 and 1959 by Presley, from recording sessions going back as far as February 1957.
Released in the spring of 1977, with recordings covering a two-year period from November 1974 to November 1976, All Hopped Up is NRBQ’s fifth album. But in many ways it showcases a new band with a new spirit, a new energy, and a new approach.
It’s the first album with drummer Tom Ardolino, who joined in August 1974 at the age of 19 and entered the recording studio just three month later. His joining signals the start of the edition of NRBQ that spanned almost 20 years while gaining notoriety for their blockbuster live performances and classic recordings.
Four Sail was the fourth album by Love. It was originally released in 1969. Arthur Lee was the only original member to play on the album. Whilst it might not be as well known as their enduring classic, Forever Changes, it’s certainly an album worthy of high praise. It contains the song, Always See Your Face, which, in more recent years, has been used on a number of film soundtracks including Ladybird and High Fidelity.
Love, fronted by the charismatic Arthur Lee, was the first rock band signed to the '60s folk label Elektra, and their wild, enigmatic sound was a big part of their unique appeal. 'Da Capo', Love's second album, found the group augmented to a septet, allowing the material to shift through a variety of musical styles. The first six songs hover around the three-minute mark, employing odd time changes to touch on everything from waltzes and free jazz (in the same song) to more mainstream, pie-in-the-sky folk rock. After scoring a hit with the reverb-laden, fuzz-guitar driven 'Seven and Seven is', their follow-up forever changes led them down the path of critical respectability.
Lambchop - What Another Man Spills (20th Anniversary Edition)
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Lambchop’s 1998 album What Another Man Spills is being pressed to vinyl for the first time after it’s original release 20 years ago! Remastered from the original DAT, the 2-LP and CD reissue features a refreshed artwork, and a limited version comes on clear and yellow vinyl. What Another Man Spills (1998) represents a milestone in Lambchop’s career, but not in the modern sense of a ‘landmark’ release. Building on foundations that had once sounded almost literally creaky, it expands upon the tentative manoeuvres they’d undertaken with the previous year’s Thriller (1997) and gestures confidently towards its brassy successor, Nixon, which would arrive in 2000 to wild acclaim and previously unimaginable commercial success. Liner Notes by Kurt Wagner.
This was the at-the-time-disappointing follow up to the splendid Nixon album where Lambchop eschewed the floaty country soul and made what seemed to be a samey set of piano-led torch songs. Yet time has a way of changing things and Is a Woman is now seen as something of a modern classic and is another oddball but pleasant diversion in a career that could be defined by the word idiosyncratic.
