Primal Scream -‘Loaded’
First released in February 1990, the ‘Loaded’ EP marked the beginning of a new phase of the band’s career, orientating them towards the burgeoning acid house scene while still staying true to their traditional rock origins, foreshadowing their era defining album Screamadelica.
Cheap Trick – ‘Out To Get You! Live 1977’
Double 12″ Vinyl LP
1977. With punk on the rise in the United Kingdom, rock ‘n’ roll experienced a tectonic shift the world over. Rockford, Illinois’ Cheap Trick rode that shake-up. Released for the first time ever and newly mixed by two-time Grammy Award winner Guy Massey (The Beatles, Ray Davies, The Jayhawks), ‘Out To Get You!’ showcases a band taking determined steps toward world domination.
Judas Priest – ‘British Steel – Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Edition’
Double 12″ Vinyl LP

Manic Street Preachers – ‘La Tristessa Durera’
This limited edition 12” is inspired by an original white label issued in 1994 and features remixes by the Chemical Brothers and Ashley Beedle. For each copy sold £1 will be doinated to Warchild.
Miles Davis – ‘Double Image: Rare Miles From the Complete Bitches Brew Sessions’
Double 12″ Red Color Vinyl
Half a century from its release, shockwaves from Miles Davis’ ‘Bitches Brew’ continue to reverberate. Leading an army of all-stars into the studio, Miles defied all conventional styles, joining the loose ends of jazz, rock and funk into a groundbreaking new sound. This double LP release on red vinyl features 10 keyboard-rich recordings captured in the wake of the original Bitches Brew sessions from August ’69 to February ‘70.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets – ‘See Emily Play/Vegetable Man’
12″ Single with Etching
From the dynamic drummer heard on every Pink Floyd album, Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets offers the opportunity to experience the group’s early body of work in concert. Ahead of a dazzling audiovisual release of material from the Roundhouse sets last May, this collectible 12″ single features two performances from those sets (including Pink Floyd outtake ‘Vegetable Man’, played for the first time ever on this tour) backed by a custom etching.
Toto – ‘Live In Tokyo 1980’
12″ Red Color Vinyl
For the first time as a standalone release, the Live In Tokyo 1980 EP captures the original line-up of the band – vocalist Bobby Kimball, guitarist Steve Lukather, keyboardists David Paich and Steve Porcaro, bassist David Hungate and drummer Jeff Porcaro – performing four tracks from their then-new sophomore album ‘Hydra’, plus the unreleased track ‘Runaway’.
