Motorhead – Ace Of Spades (40th Anniversary)
Release date: 30 October
- Upon its release in 1980, the Ace Of Spades album was nothing short of a game-changer, not only for Motörhead but for all forms of hard rock. Like lightning in a bottle, it perfectly captured everything great about hard rock, heavy metal, and punk, amped it all up to eleven, and came racing out of the gates at what felt like a million miles an hour. Pushing at every musical boundary, nothing was harder, nothing was faster, and certainly nothing was louder. This 40th anniversary edition contains the original album as well a bonus live disc featuring newly unearthed, 17-song, previously unreleased concert from the ‘Ace Up Your Sleeve’ tour.
- The 7-LP + 10" + DVD box set features the following:
- The Ace Of Spades album on vinyl, half-speed mastered and created from the original master tapes.
- Two double-live albums of previously unheard concerts from the Ace Up Your Sleeve tour.
- A Fistful Of Instrumentals: a 10" EP of previously unreleased instrumental tracks from 1980.
- The Good, The Broke & The Ugly: a double album of B-sides, outtakes and rare tracks.
- Ace On Your Screens: a DVD compilation of rare TV appearances from 1980–81, a live concert from 1981 and a 5.1 audio mix of the original album.

Released 4 September 2020
- Oranges & Lemons is the eighth in a series of classic XTC albums to be issued on 200g vinyl. The album has been mastered by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering with input from Andy Partridge, and is fully approved by XTC. Oranges & Lemons is one of the most requested vinyl reissues as it was only on vinyl for a short period towards the end of the first vinyl era and was, as a result, never available as a decent quality pressing and poorly presented in a single sleeve. The sleeve has been re-worked to present the front colour image in all its psychedelic glory – and expanded to a gatefold to accommodate both the weight of the vinyl and the inclusion of song lyrics.
Released 7 August 2020
- The Dark Knight Rises is a Grammy-nominated soundtrack to the film directed by Christopher Nolan, composed by the legendary Hans Zimmer (Inception, Interstellar, Gladiator). Zimmer said that in his attempt to create a sound that nobody has ever heard, he had a very ambitious idea for the film, but that it was so experimental, he didn’t know if it would actually work. As with the soundtracks for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, this album features a beautiful array of distinctive, unforgettable pieces that capture the essence of the characters, the film’s major sequences/moments and exemplary pacing.
- The Dark Knight Rises is available as a limited edition of 600 for the UK individually numbered copies on silver & black marbled vinyl. The wonderful package includes a 4-page insert, liner notes by Christopher Nolan, an exclusive litho of movie poster and a magnifique fridge magnet.
Released 31 July 2020
- The Delta Sweete is the second studio album by Bobbie Gentry: a concept album inspired by her Mississippi childhood, it was originally released on 5th February 1968. It is Gentry’s most critically acclaimed album and has not been pressed in the UK or US since 1972. Interest in the album is at a high after Uncut recently placed it fourth in their ‘Ultimate Genre Guide’ to the best singer-songwriter albums of all time.
- This 2-CD / 2-LP reissue features the original album newly mixed and mastered from multi-tracks by Andrew Batt, and is supplemented by out-takes and demos, featuring two previously unreleased tracks. The CD edition also features the original mono mix of the album, which has not appeared on CD before. Sleeve notes are supplied by Andrew, and are illustrated with unseen images from the Capitol archive.
Released 24 July 2020
- Dry is the debut studio album by English singer-songwriter and musician PJ Harvey, originally released on Too Pure Records on 30 March 1992. The album was recorded at The Icehouse, a local studio in Yeovil. Critically lauded both on release and retrospectively, the album contains the singles ‘Dress’ and ‘Sheela-Na-Gig’.
- The album is now available on vinyl for the first time in almost 20 years. The album was remastered by the original producer, Head, and has been replicated to the original version as much as possible.
- Pitchfork: “On her debut, Polly Jean Harvey matched Patti Smith’s incandescence with Bessie Smith’s lasciviousness, outplayed everyone on the British indie circuit, and became an instant star – 9.2”
- Dry Demos is an 11-track collection of demos of all songs from the debut studio album Dry by PJ Harvey, available for the first time since 1992, and previously released as a bonus LP with the limited 1st pressing of the album proper. This release features brand-new artwork with previously unseen photos by Maria Mochnacz.
Released 17 July 2020
- Originally released in 1991, Tin Machine II’s reputation has only increased over the years. It was also the band’s last: after the supporting tour, frontman David Bowie resumed his solo career. Uncut magazine placed the album on their list of 50 Great Lost Albums (their list of great albums not currently available for purchase), calling the album ‘extraordinary’. As with all Bowie albums, there are plenty of strong tracks here to make this a must-have. The first single, ‘You Belong in Rock n’ Roll’, was released ahead of the album and peaked at No.33 in the UK charts. The second single, ‘Baby Universal’, achieved success in the USA, and the third and last single, ‘One Shot’, became an even bigger hit, reaching No.3 there. Now is the perfect time to discover this album once again, or for the first time.
- Note: the LP is available on limited edition numbered silver vinyl.
Released 10 July 2020
- While the Grateful Dead’s first three studio albums had their fans, the group couldn’t achieve the mass breakthrough that would make the entire world take notice of this band of misfits from the Bay Area. Workingman’s Dead, released on 14 June 1970, changed all that. With eight perfect songs – like ‘Casey Jones’ and ‘High Time’ – the album solidified the Jerry Garcia–Robert Hunter songwriting tandem as one of the best, and most important, songwriting collaborations in music history. This landmark album is now celebrated with the deluxe remastered set Workingman’s Dead: 50th Anniversary Edition.
- Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron ‘Pigpen’ McKernan, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart recorded the album in about 10 days at Pacific High Recording Studio in San Francisco with Bob Matthews and Betty Cantor – the band’s live sound engineers – as producers. Fifty years on, every song sounds fresh, alive, and new.
- The 3-CD deluxe set includes the original album with newly remastered sound, plus an unreleased concert recorded on 21 February 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The show featured a plethora of songs from both Workingman’s Dead and the band’s follow-up album, American Beauty, which was released in November 1970. Some highlights include Weir’s moving vocal take on ‘Me And Bobby McGee’, Pigpen’s whiskey-seasoned growl on ‘Easy Wind’ and a stellar run through ‘Uncle John’s Band’ to close out the show. Music journalist David Fricke says of this performance: “The complete Port Chester evening in this 50th-anniversary edition of Workingman’s Dead … was a great night in what has long been deemed a legendary run, another turning point as the band entered a live era combining the focus of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty with the exploratory verve of Live/Dead. Many of the classic songs spread across Dead LPs in 1971 and ’72 were introduced that week at the Capitol, and many of them are in this concert, still fresh off the griddle.” The live recording has been mixed from the 16-track analogue master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Bob Weir’s Marin County TRI Studios and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Glasser.
Released 3 July 2020
- Available on double clear vinyl and double CD, this expanded reissue of The Charlatans’s classic album Between 10th & 11th contains the original album plus remastered tracks from the oft-bootlegged live show from Chicago in 1991, known as Isolation 21.2.91, a holy grail amongst fans.
