Posted by Mark Merrifield on

Hello folks, 

LOADS to tell you all about this week. First up...

The 45th Anniversary Edition of David Bowie's 1975 album Young Americans is out Friday 18th September as a Limited Edition in store exclusive on Gold Heavyweight vinyl. See instore or contact the shop for more details. 

Some New Arrivals from this week's releases including the welcome return of Manchester favourites Doves - The Universal Want, PJ Harvey To Bring you My Love Demos and the To Bring You My Love reissue, Marilyn Manson We Are Chaos includes a poster of Manson's cover art painting with both the CD & White Vinyl versions and last but not least an 8CD box set from Richard & Linda Thompson - Hard Luck Stories (1972-1982) which is a rather lovely thing!

Friday 18th September New Releases include...

The Times is another lockdown home recording, this time from Neil Young, it's part of the raw and personal, Fireside Sessions series and includes his updated Lookin' For A Leader - 2020, Alabama from the seminal Harvest album, the Young penned CSN&Y classic Ohio, the brilliant Southern Man from the After The Gold Rush album, and Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin closing with Little Wing from the latest Reprise release, Homegrown.

Young Knives' fifth album, Barbarians. The album was written, recorded and mixed by Young Knives (brothers Henry Dartnall and The House of Lords/Thomas Dartnall) in their studio near Oxford, UK. The album is inspired by John Gray’s book Straw Dogs. Barbarians is a leap into sonic experimentation by a band who love to confuse and entertain in equal measure. We have copies on CD and of the pink splatter vinyl limited to 200 copies. 

Run The Jewels, aka El-P and Killer Mike, release their feverishly anticipated new album, Run The Jewels 4. This eleven song, 40 minute powerhouse is their more ferocious and focused effort to date, and sports a lineup of all-star guests including Pharrell Williams, Mavis Staples, 2 Chainz, Zack de la Rocha, Josh Homme, DJ Premier and Greg Nice. Available on Ltd magenta vinyl or CD.

During lockdown Dutch Jazz pianist Brad Mehldau 'tried to portray on the piano some experiences and feelings that are both new and common to many of us'. The result is his new release Suite: April 2020 

 The 60th Anniversary Edition of John Coltrane's Giant Steps is released this week as a double LP or CD with bonus disc of alternate takes.

One of our favourites the 1970 album Tea For The Tillerman has been rerecorded by Yusuf/Cat Stevens for its 50th Anniversary. Tea For The Tillerman 2  looks fantastic and is also sealed in a compostable wrapper.
