New Releases for 11/19
Adele - 30 [Order Now] - If you want to know why your favorite band’s new vinyl release is delayed, it may be because Columbia Records is pressing 500,000 copies of the new Adele LP. Its her first new album since 2015, so of course it will be huge, but did we need 500,000 copies? Probably yes and I’m just being bitter. Enjoy!

Oasis - Knebworth 1996 [Order Now] - It feels like a million years have passed since Oasis was on top of the rock world, but this concert documents them at their rock star peak.

The shows were both the pinnacle of the band’s success and a landmark gathering for a generation of young people.
Robert Plant/Alison Krauss - Raise The Roof [Order Now: Black - Indie Exclusive] - In 2007, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss released Raising Sand, one of the most acclaimed albums of the 21st Century.
