(begeleidende teksten in Engels)

 

Alice In Chains – What the Hell Have I (2×7″ in mini gatefold)

This special Alice in Chains 45 RPM double 7″ single collects four hard-hitting tracks remastered and available on vinyl for the first time. “What the Hell Have I” and “A Little Bitter,” released on the soundtrack to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film “Last Action Hero” in 1993, were the first to feature new bassist Mike Inez, who’d played with Ozzy Osbourne for five years. “Get Born Again” and “Died,” released on the box set Music Bank in 1999, were the band’s final recordings with original vocalist Layne Staley.

 

 

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Hammersmith Odeon, London ’75 (4LP, numbered)

On November 18, 1975, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band made their first concert appearance outside of America, at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. Born to Run had been released three months earlier, and Springsteen had famously appeared on the covers of Time and Newsweek three weeks before the Hammersmith gig–was the rest of the world finally ready for him? More than 40 years later, Hammersmith Odeon London ’75 answers with a resounding “yes”–and now, for the first time on vinyl, fans can experience the magic of that unforgettable night.

 

 

Curtis Knight ft. Jimi Hendrix – Live At George’s Club 20 (2LP, numbered)

Live At George’s Club 20 collects raw amateur live recordings of Jimi Hendrix performing with Curtis Knight, made in December 1965 and January 1966—just months before the discovery of the game-changing guitarist in Greenwich Village by Animals bassist Chas Chandler. These raucous blues and soul recordings represent the closest approximation we have to what Chandler heard when he first spotted Hendrix at the Café Wha? on MacDougal Street. Never before officially released in America, Jimi’s primal guitar, compelling voice and magnetic persona are evident throughout inspired interpretations of classic material by Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles and others. This specially priced, two LP offering from Dagger Records, the official bootleg label created by Experience Hendrix, presents the original recordings restored by Hendrix’s longtime sound engineer Eddie Kramer. These remarkable recordings are free of the extraneous overdubs and excess audio manipulation apparent on earlier, unsanctioned releases of these performances.

 

 

Robert Johnson – The Centennial Collection (3LP, numbered)

In 1936 and 1937, Robert Johnson recorded two sessions of Delta blues that would profoundly shape the course of rock music over the 20th century. The Complete Recordings: The Centennial Collection is the ultimate document of these groundbreaking sessions. All 42 known recordings are exquisitely remastered on 3 LPs, packaged in a deluxe trifold jacket including extensive liner notes–the first time Johnson’s complete recorded works are available in one vinyl package. This set also includes an exclusive bonus poster featuring the original labels of Johnson’s 78 RPM singles, released by Vocalion 80 years ago.

 

 

Santana – Live At The Woodstock Music & Art Fair, August 16, 1969 (LP)

When Santana took the stage at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair on August 16, 1969, the group was virtually unknown outside of the thriving Bay Area music scene. By the time they triumphantly closed their set, they were one of the festival’s biggest surprises. Santana delivered a career-making performance melding Latin rock and bruising blues that readied the world for the band’s platinum-selling debut album, released weeks later. Santana Live At The Woodstock Music & Art Fair, August 16, 1969 takes listeners back to that jaw-dropping show, pressed on vinyl for the first time.

 

 

Pearl Jam – State Of Love And Trust/Breath (7″)

First heard 25 years ago on the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe’s Singles, Pearl Jam’s “State of Love and Trust” and “Breath” are coupled on 45 RPM 7″ vinyl for the first time. The double platinum soundtrack album exposed mainstream audiences to the burgeoning Seattle grunge scene, and helped establish bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Mudhoney. Pearl Jam will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 7, 2017. Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack – Deluxe Edition will be released on CD and LP in May and features a bonus disc of rare and unreleased material from Chris Cornell, Paul Westerberg and more.

 

 

David Bowie – No Plan (12″ EP)

The No Plan Vinyl includes the three final David Bowie studio recordinygs during the sessions for his 28th and final album, ★, “No Plan,” “Killing A Little Time” and “When I Met You”— along with ★ single and Cast Album title track “Lazarus”— on heavyweight 180g black vinyl that includes a special laser etching on side B and is housed in new artwork designed by longtime collaborator Jonathan Barnbrook.

“No Plan” is hailed by Rolling Stone—who ranked it #4 in their 50 Best Songs of 2016 – as “a magnificent coda… one last transmission from the Bowie universe.”

 

 

Andre 3000 – All Together Now (7″)

For the first time on vinyl, André 3000’s eclectic interpretation of The Beatles’ “All Together Now,” first heard in a Nike commercial which aired during the NBA Finals in 2010. This 45rpm 7″ single is backed with a previously unreleased instrumental version of the track.

 

 

Ben Folds w/ West Australian Symphony Orchestra (2LP)

Recorded live over two nights in Australia in 2005, Live in Perth features Ben Folds in collaboration with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra for a lush symphonic take on favorites from his witty piano-pop discography–his first of many performances with orchestras all over the world. Previously only available on DVD, Live in Perth will be available as a 2LP set that features two previously unreleased recordings from the concerts.

 

 

Buddy Guy – Sick With Love/She Got It Together 10″

10″ single with two brand new Buddy Guy songs exclusive to this RSD release.

 

Charl Delemarre – CHARL (10″ yellow vinyl) 

Charl is een 26-jarige Nederlandstalige singer/songwriter uit Roepaen, Limburg en is een echte troubadour. Wie luistert naar zijn muziek hoort direct dat hij een zingende verhalen verteller is. In 2014 won hij de Grote Prijs van Nederland, bracht hij zijn debuut EP ‘De Bekentenis’ (met de single ‘Zonder Jou’) uit bij Sony en was hij meerdere keren te zien bij De Wereld Draait Door. Tevens trad Charl vorige jaar op tijdens Noorderslag en reisde door heel Nederland met de Popronde. Hij sloot het jaar af als voorprogramma van De Dijk en werd persoonlijk door Guus Meeuwis uitgenodigd om samen met hem een nummer te zingen tijdens diens shows in de Ziggo Dome afgelopen december.

De EP bevat het lied “Lichtelijk Verlicht” en wordt regelmatig gedraaid op Radio 2. Dezelfde radiozender benoemde Charl meteen dit jaar als ‘Nieuw Geluid’ van Radio 2. ‘Lichtelijk Verlicht’ kwam daarmee direct op de playlist.

 

 

Coheed And Cambria – Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV (2LP coloured vinyl)

Released in 2005, the breakthrough third studio album by progressive rockers Coheed and Cambria continued the band’s ambitious four-album “Amory Wars” sci-fi storyline and featured the mainstream rock hit “Welcome Home.” Now, Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness is remastered from the original sources and pressed on vinyl for the first time as a 2LP set on exclusive splatter vinyl.

 

 

 

Dennis Wilson – Bambu (2LP, coloured vinyl)

Bambu (The Caribou Sessions) features highlights from the recording sessions for the planned second album by Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys. Recorded in 1978 as the follow-up to Wil-son’s classic Pacific Ocean Blue, these eclectic and ambitious recordings were left unreleased when Wilson died in 1983, and remained so until 2008. Now, the power and emotion of Wilson’s lost masterpiece can be heard on a newly designed 2LP set pressed on colored vinyl and featur-ing new liner notes by Ken Sharp.

 

 

Harry Nilsson – Nilsson Schmilsson (LP, coloured vinyl)

Harry Nilsson’s 1971 masterpiece Nilsson Schmilsson will be pressed on yellow and white split color vinyl for Record Store Day. This classic LP–the first of two that Nilsson recorded in Eng-land with producer Richard Perry–features the Grammy Award-winning No. 1 hit “Without You” (written and originally recorded by Badfinger and later a hit for Mariah Carey) plus the quirky Top 10 smash “Coconut” and the hard-driving “Jump Into the Fire.” This special reissue also includes a reproduction of the poster included with original copies of the album.

 

 

Johnny Cash – The Johnny Cash Children’s Album (LP)

The Johnny Cash Children’s Album showcases another side of The Man in Black. Released in 1975, this LP features lighthearted songs like “Nasty Dan” (written by Sesame Street writer Jeff Moss and first performed by Cash on the classic children’s program), the original “I Got a Boy (and His Name is John)” (written about Cash’s only son, John Carter Cash, who contributes liner notes to this reissue) and “Old Shep,” famously recorded by Elvis Presley in 1956. Available on vinyl for the first time in more than 40 years, The Johnny Cash Children’s Album is good clean country fun for the whole family.

 

 

Kasabian – You’re In Love With A Psycho (10″)

 

 

Moondog – Moondog (LP, wit vinyl)

He was born Louis Hardin, but the world knew him as Moondog–and his avant-garde compositions influenced a generation of minimalist composers like Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Now, The Viking of 6th Avenue’s seminal 1969 album, recorded with producer James William Guercio, will be reissued on white vinyl, its first pressing in over a decade. Featuring original symphonic and classically-inspired works (including material dedicated to Charlie Parker and Benny Goodman), Moondog is an album that must be heard to be believed.

 

 

Soul Assassins – Muggs Presents… The Soul Assassins Chapter 1 (picture disc LP)

For The Soul Assassins Chapter 1, producer DJ Muggs assembled a hard-hitting album that combined a murderer’s row of hip-hop icons with Muggs’ laid-back, West Coast beats. With verses from Cypress Hill, Dr. Dre, RZA, GZA, Goodie Mob, KRS-One, Mobb Deep, Wyclef Jean and more, The Soul Assassins Chapter 1 is a one-of-a-kind hip-hop touchstone. It’s being reissued for its 20th anniversary as a 12″ picture disc featuring the original album’s striking cover illustration and logo.

 

 

The Sweet – Fox On The Run (12″ yellow vinyl)

Toto – Africa/Rosanna (die-cut picture disc 7″)

Two of Toto’s biggest hits–the chart-topping “Africa” and Grammy Award-winning smash “Rosanna”–return to vinyl on a special recreation of a limited edition, die-cut, Africa-shaped picture disc originally released in 1982, featuring a map of the continent on the A-side and an image of actress Rosanna Arquette, the inspiration for “Rosanna,” on the B-side. This is the first release in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Toto, one of the best-selling and most virtuosic rock bands of all time.
