Richard Thompson - Mirror Blue

Any album boasting a song as gorgeous and heartfelt as 'Beeswing' is going to be a keeper. But Richard Thompson's 1994 release Mirror Blue has a lot more going for it than just that classic. 'King of Bohemia' will tease tears from your eyes, and those looking for rave-ups will be transported by Thompson's solos on 'The Way That It Shows' and 'Mascara Tears.' It's one of his best, if most underappreciated records; but Mirror Blue never saw a release on vinyl in the U.S.; and, even though it clocks in at 55 minutes, it was released as a single album in the UK. So, our release rights two wrongs; this album has never sounded or looked as good as it does on this 2-LP set housed inside a gorgeous gatefold jacket. Clear 'Mirror' vinyl pressing limited to 1200 copies!

True Romance - Motion Picture Soundtrack

Though it was directed by Tony Scott, the 1993 film True Romance displayed all the signature themes and images of its writer, Quentin Tarantino, from its grisly violence to its B-movie homages to its gleeful amorality. And the same could be said of the soundtrack; alongside composer Hans Zimmer's riff on Carl Orff (which itself was an homage to another violent road movie, Badlands), True Romance offered a playlist that smacked of Tarantino in its embrace of rockabilly (Charlie Sexton, Chris Isaak), grunge (Soundgarden), honky-tonk (Shelby Lynne), and romantic machismo (Robert Palmer's take on '[Love Is] The Tender Trap'). Vinyl would seem a natural for such a 'warped' soundtrack; and, for this reissue, we've crafted a custom jacket sporting production stills from the film. What's more, this release of True Romance comes in blue with magenta splatter 'Alabama Worley' vinyl!
