Here's what's new in stock this week...

Two of the greats have releases this week...


David Bowie's 50th Anniversary Edition of Metrobolist. Originally titled Metrobolist, the album's name was changed at the last minute to The Man Who Sold The World. The 2020 re-release of the album under its Metrobolist moniker has been remixed by original producer Tony Visconti with artwork created by Mike Weller who was behind the historically controversial “dress” cover which Mercury Records refused to release. 


Neil Young's Return To Greendale is the next installment in Neil Young's performance series and features a concert from the historic and unique 2003 tour supporting the release of the album. 


Both are available on vinyl or CD and are out Friday 6th November

Other goodies in this week:

Loma - is Emily Cross (Cross Record), Dan Duszynski, and Jonathan Meiburg (Shearwater) who met on tour and formed a band. Don't Shy Away is their second album. Loma have been championed by Brian Eno and this release includes a collaboration with him. We have vinyl & CD versions available.
