We have some great re-issues from classic artists this week: Bob Marley & The Wailers' Legend has been reissued as a 12" Picture Disc AND we have limited indie exclusive 12x12 art prints to give away with each copy while stocks last.
Also re-released is the 2nd and final album from David Bowie's Tin Machine - Tin Machine II. This is its first vinyl re-release since the 1991 original, and it’s pressed on coloured vinyl for the very first time. We have copies of the limited edition run of 10,000 individually numbered LPs on silver 180gm vinyl and cd. 
Marvin Gaye's compilation album Every Great Motown Hit has been reissued,  as has PJ Harvey's Dry Demos CD and Vinyl is a previously unreleased standalone album of original demos. Also reissued this week is the original Dry album as an LP at a bargain price.
Re-issue of sortafter early Spoon's release Telephono from 1996 on vinyl - Newly recut from the original masters Telephono is released as part of the Slay On Cue series, which will see the reissue of the band’s first eight records in original editions.
We also have a new album from Seasick Steve Love & Peace is full of hope for the future - a great mix of boogie, blues, rock, Americana and folk. Available on vinyl or CD. We also have copies of two of the album's limited edition singles in stock Travelin' Man & Love & Peace (Edit) (only 475 copies of each single have been released)

Soul Jazz Records' new release is Kaleidoscope - New Spirits Known & Unknown - brings together many of the ground-breaking artists involved in the new UK jazz scene. We have the super deluxe triple LP with limited exclusive bonus 7" Single. 
60s Folk singer Shirley Collins releases Heart's Ease this week, 'a glorious reminder that she is still in a class of her own, both as a folk singer with a distinctive no-nonsense style that is all her own, and as an innovator.'
Fetch The Bolt Cutters is the new album from Fiona Apple, her first in eight years and Pitchfork calls it 'A perfect album'!. It's available as on CD with a 20 page booklet or as a double opaque pearl vinyl.
Greatest Ever Ska & Mod is a brilliant new 4CD compilation & great value too.
***Available to PRE-ORDER now!***
A re-issue of Belle & Sebastian's 2005 compilation album Push Barman to Open Old Wounds. It's a chronological double deluxe CD / triple LP on clear vinyl collection of all 25 songs from Belle and Sebastian’s Jeepster EP and single releases compiled onto one album. It's out at the end of the month next Friday.
Sad news came on Wednesday that Cardiacs frontman Tim Smith had passed away. His punk-prog band formed in the late '70s influenced many indie bands and without him 90s music would have sounded very different.
Teen Idle - Insomniac Dreams - Exciting New Discovery.
Very fond of this release, one of our favourite releases of the year so far from New Jersey Dreampop band Teen Idle, their beautifully mature debut mini album Insomniac Dreams has knocked us out with it's melancholic indie rock which evokes class 90s American bands like Madder Rose and Mazzy Star. We first heard this from fantastic Internet Radio Show Eleven Pop Songs. Recommended. Our copy comes with an exclusive art print from excellent Chicago label Sunday Records.
Next week we'll be announcing more news about the RSD Drops, the first coming on Saturday 29 August. Have a good week all X
