Side Tracks by Bob Dylan
3 x 12" 200 gram LPs - numbered limited edition

An independent record store vinyl exclusive, "Side Tracks" is a career-spanning collection of official Bob Dylan recordings--including previously released non-album singles, tracks from Biograph and other compilations, songs from films and more--that have never appeared on one of the artist's formal albums. (A two CD version of the "Side Tracks" collection is also available as part of the monumental Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One box set, out November 5.)

5 x 12" 180 gram LPs - numbered limited edition

An independent record store vinyl exclusive, The Classic Albums 1977-1979 box collects the first five ground-breaking power-pop masterpieces from one of America's all-time great rock bands, Cheap Trick. First released within a breathtaking two-year creative peak period in the late 1970s, these classic titles--Cheap Trick, In Color, Heaven Tonight, Live Budokan and Dream Police--have been newly remastered in 2013 from the original analog tapes and come packaged in original album artwork, housed in a newly-designed, numbered limited edition LP box.




 

Rarities Collection by Harry Nilsson
12" 180 gram LP - numbered limited edition

An independent record store vinyl exclusive, these 12 rare Nilsson tracks have been especially selected for this release from The RCA Album Collection, a career-spanning 17 CD collection, and include demos, outtakes and other rarities.

These records are now joined by a newly-curated fourth LP, Oh! Pretty Woman - the "missing" Monument album masterpiece that could have, and should have been released as its title song, "Oh, Pretty Woman" was topping the charts in 1964.




 

"Fire" b/w "Foxey Lady" by Jimi Hendrix Experience
7" single - Numbered Limited Edition

An independent record store vinyl exclusive, these two live tracks were performed by the Jimi Hendrix Experience at the May 1968 Miami Pop Festival and have been previously unavailable.

7" vinyl single - Numbered Limited Edition

An independent record store vinyl exclusive, this vinyl 7" includes "I Wanna Be Your Dog," a cover of the Stooges punk standard and outtake from No Depression, on the A Side with a B Side premiering a previously unreleased studio outtake showcasing Uncle Tupelo rocking Credence Clearwater Revival's "Commotion" in a preview of the forthcoming Legacy Edition of No Depression.




 

Halftime by Nas
12" Vinyl reproduction of 1992 original

Originally recorded for the Zebrahead soundtrack by an emerging American MC calling himself "Nasty Nas," this explosive debut, in the words of Vibe magazine, "created a niche that only Illmatic could fill." The single also launched the career of one of the most durable, provocative and poetic rappers in hip-hop history. This facsimile reproduction of the original 12" vinyl includes the full "Halftime" A-side (1. radio edit, 2. LP version. 3. LP version instrumental) and B-side (1. Butcher Remix 2. Butcher Mix instrumental). The Nas "Halftime" release provides a fitting overture for the upcoming 20th Anniversary of Illmatic in 2014 (#ILLMATIC20 /Coming 2014).




 

Kind of Blue by Miles Davis
12" 180 gram LP - MONO - Numbered Edition

The top-selling jazz album of all time, the modality of Kind of Blue found its way into classical, rock, and pop becoming one of the most influential cultural touchstones of the last half of the 20th century and one of the most transcendent pieces of music ever recorded. Davis played trumpet sublime with his ensemble sextet featuring pianist Bill Evans, drummer Jimmy Cobb, bassist Paul Chambers, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian "Cannonball" Adderley with Wyton Kelly playing piano on "Freddy the Freeloader."




 

Miles & Monk at Newport by Miles Davis
12" 180 gram LP - MONO - Numbered Edition

Classic live recordings from jazz masters Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk on one LP. Side One is high energy bebop from the Miles Davis Sextet in 1958 and Side Two includes two full numbers from the Thelonious Monk Quartet with Pee Wee Russell from 1963.




 

Jazz Track by Miles Davis
12" 180 gram LP - MONO - Numbered Edition

A reissue of two underrated Miles Davis sessions on one mono LP; Side One is the Miles Davis Quintet's soundtrack for the French film L'Ascenseuer Pour l'Echafaud while highlights from the Miles Davis Sextet's session on May 26, 1958 (Davis' 32nd birthday).
