Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms (2LP Abbey Road Remaster)
If there is going to be a definitive vinyl issue of this album, I’m pretty sure this Abbey Road half speed remaster will be the one. This version contains the full-length songs of the album, total playing time of 55:07. The original single album LP length is 47:21. Songs "So Far Away", "Money For Nothing", "Your Latest Trick" and "Why Worry" were edited on that release.
Harry Nilsson - Nilsson Schmilsson (Mobile Fidelity Original Master Recording 2LP 45 RPM Remaster)
It’s impossible to go wrong with anything remastered by Mobile Fidelity, so this will be well worth picking up. Home to the number-one smash 'Without You,' Top 10 novelty hit 'Coconut,' and deceptively upbeat 'Gotta Get Up'-prominently featured in the Netflix series 'Russian Doll'-the 1971 work walks a tightrope between streamlined accessibility and mischievous, whimsical individualism like no other music of the era.Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Nilsson Schmilsson feature unadulterated transparency and visceral solidity.
Joe Strummer - Assembly
Joe Strummer is one of my musical heroes, so this is a no brainer for me. ASSEMBLY showcases carefully curated singles, fan favorites, and archival rarities from the JOE STRUMMER solo catalog. This 16-track compilation features three previously unreleased versions of classic Clash tracks, including the never-before-heard “Junco Partner (Acoustic)” and electrifying live performances of “Rudie Can’t Fail” and “I Fought The Law,” the latter two of which were recorded by Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros at London’s Brixton Academy on November 24, 2001.Album comes on 180g double vinyl in Gatefold Sleeve All tracks remastered by Grammy Award Winner Paul Hicks (The Beatles/George Harrison/ The Rolling Stones/John Lennon) Package includes new written foreword by Jakob Dylan.
Neil Young - Young Shakespeare
Over the past few years, Neil Young has done an amazing job of digging through his vast album vault, finding unreleased gems and finally getting them into the hands of his fans. This upcoming acoustic solo show will be another amazing entry in his Vault series. Just two months after the release of his seminal album After The Gold Rush, Neil Young played a solo show at The Shakespeare Theater, Stratford, CT on January 22 1971. The show was filmed and recorded, and the concert shown on German TV later in 1971. In 2020, while Neil and his team were reviewing his Archive for future projects, Neil re-visited the 16mm film and audio recording of this show that had been preserved in the Archive for almost 50 years. Piecing together the tapes and footage, Neil realized that he had the full concert – the film of which is the earliest live footage of Neil performing that is known to exist. Neil has written on NYA that this show is“superior to our beloved “Massey Hall”. This beautiful concert is being released on LP and CD, plus a deluxe boxed edition that includes both LP and CD and, for the first time ever, a DVD of the concert. Young Shakespeare is being released almost exactly 50 years after the original performance.
