The Shame, The Shy Limbs, King Crimson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, solo artist, producer, composer, lyricist, bass player extraordinaire, Greg Lake had it all. BMG pays fitting tribute to Lake's trailblazing career with The Anthology: A Musical Journey, an essential 20-track double vinyl LP collection of his outstanding songs and iconic performances. The Anthology has many notable highlights: for starters there's the hugely collectible psych 45 "Love" that Lake recorded in 1969 whilst with the Shy Limbs, alongside carefully curated treasures from ELP's hit albums, notably "Take A Pebble," "C'est La Vie" and "Lucky Man." No Anthology would be complete without that much-loved solo hit "I Believe In Father Christmas," or the inclusion of King Crimson's "21st Schizoid Man," "Peace" and "In The Court Of The Crimson King."

The War On Drugs

Live Drugs [LP]

$28.98

New Vinyl: $28.98 Buy

The War on Drugs will release LIVE DRUGS, their first new album since 2017's GRAMMY-winning A Deeper Understanding, on November 20th via Super High Quality Records, bandleader Adam Granduciel's own record label. LIVE DRUGS is a collection culled from over 40 hard drives of recorded live shows spread out across years of touring behind multiple albums. It's the first volume to capture the band's live interpretations and a document showcasing the evolution of the band's live show over the years. It's also a portrait of the enduring relationship between Granduciel and LIVE DRUGS's co-producer Dominic East, a longtime friend, guitar tech and stage manager. Today, they present it's lead single, "Pain (Live)," "a hypnotic and excellent blast of heartland rock" (Entertainment Weekly).LIVE DRUGS is sequenced to reflect how a typical 70-minute show would flow. It thrives on live set staples immortalized on record for the first time and illustrates how years of live performance nurtures an evolution of the songs. This includes "Buenos Aires Beach" from the band's 2008 full-length debut, Wagonwheel Blues, and a cover of Warren Zevon's "Accidentally like a Martyr." An early live version of A Deeper Understanding's "Strangest Thing" feels joyfully loose; Granduciel fell in love with this version while going through the recordings with mental notes of memorable shows. On the last five minutes of the live favorite, "Under the Pressure," a crowd of 20,000 people are heard singing along to the extended guitar melody. Or take "Eyes to the Wind," the version heard here has grown wholly independent of the version found on Lost in the Dream."As a band leader, I always want to know where a song can go," Granduciel explains. "Even though we've recorded it, mastered it, put it out, and been touring on it, it doesn't mean that we just have to do it the same way forever." And in that way, LIVE DRUGS is a freeing moment for the band. Now finally captured, these live iterations of the songs feel recontextualized, and subsequently less precious. "It feels like it's kind of a reset, to be able to put something out that's a really good interpretation of the way we interpret our music live. Even though this recording is from a year of tours, this is really how these six guys evolved as a band from 2014 to 2019."Over the last six months, The War on Drugs have been laying low - working in the studio on a new album, remixing The Rolling Stones "Scarlett," and recording exclusive performances for various non-profit groups, including Vote Ready for voter registration, Love From Philly benefitting Philadelphia's arts community and Tzedek DC supporting legal rights of low-income DC residents.

Wu Hen is the sophomore album from Peckham visionary Kamaal Williams -- an invitation to elevate to a higher state. Cinematic strings from Miguel-Atwood Ferguson and virtuoso saxophone from Quinn Mason are textural additions that make for a deeper, multi-layered experience than previous releases. Bringing groove back to the forefront, Wu Hen oscillates between celestial jazz, funk, rap and r&b reinforced with the rugged beat-heavy attitude of grime, jungle, house and garage a self-styled fusion Kamaal describes as Wu Funk. New players on this record include LA s Greg Paul on drums (of Kalayst Collective), Rick Leon James on bass, Quinn Mason on saxophone alongside vocal features from cult rapper Mach-Hommy and Kaytranada collaborator Lauren Faith. Multi-talented renaissance musician Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (who has worked with Ray Charles, Flying Lotus, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, and Seu Jorge) contributes signature strings, which add vivid colour and rich depth, evoking vintage David Axelrod.

Limited blue and red colored vinyl LP pressing. John Hiatt recorded 'Master Of Disaster' with the North Mississippi All Stars as his backing band. With the title track, he addresses the artist's midlife crisis and finds creative renewal in the process, a theme revisited in the country balladry of "Old School." There's a ragtime spirit to 'Wintertime Blues' and 'Back on the Corner', the insistence of a tom-tom's thump on 'Love's Not Where We Thought We Left It' and 'Find You At Last', a slide guitar that slices and dices through 'Ain't Ever Goin' Back'.

Limited clear and gray colored vinyl LP pressing. Much to his credit, John Hiatt has never strayed very far from the bluesy garage rock roots of his Indiana childhood. That fact is raucously underscored here, a gritty collection that finds the veteran singer/songwriter co-crediting his longtime band, the Goners (guitarist Sonny Landreth, bassist Dave Ranson and Kenneth Blevins on drums) for the first time-and for good reason. Recorded live in the studio, Hiatt and the Goners evoke everything from chugging Sun Records' shuffles to swampy Delta blues, early Ry Cooder and the Band, all of it informed by the almost telepathic sense of interplay these musicians have developed over decades of touring. This is easily the most overtly rocking album of Hiatt's career, but one that hasn't sacrificed an ounce of soul for it's joyous energy.

Vinyl LP pressing. With a unique sound founded on a persuasive mix of American and African jazz, Armitage Road, originally released in 1970, was the only studio recording released by South Africa's Heshoo Beshoo Group. As a highly prized collector's item, a re-issue and re-appraisal of this lost gem from the apartheid era has been long overdue. Heshoo Beshoo loosely translates from the inter-tribal lingo of the townships as either 'going by force', or 'moving with force'. That is certainly the case here. With it's undeniably funky element Armitage Road combines graceful and moving playing with invention and passion, and it does not disappoint from start to finish.

West Coast Vibes consists of Roy Ayers's debut recording session and it can be easily seen as the purest jazz statement of his long career.

A one-off chance to hear Ayers dealing with standards like Monk's "Well You Needn't" and Parker's "Donna Lee". This is old school west coast jazz at it's best.

Formed in 1976 by Paulo Som (vocals, viola and guitar), Johnny (vocals and guitar), Pierre (bass and vocals), Gilberto (keyboards and banjo) and Edison Edisol (drums and effects), the Sao Paulo group Pao com Manteiga released only one record. Rare and desired by collectors, 'Pao com Manteiga' returns to stores on 180-gram vinyl through the 'Classics in Vinyl' collection, in in partnership with Warner. With studio direction and production by Waldyr Santos, the work flirts with medieval themes and, in his lyrics, addresses the magical world of Avalon. Mystical subjects and sound experiments with characteristics of seventies psychedelia. Among the 12 tracks, 'Microbes of the Universe' (Sound / Pierre / Edison / Johnny) and 'Fugindo do Planeta' (Pierre / Paulo / Johnny) are some of the highlights. All the arrangements were made by the quintet, who knew how to use with competence the textures and ambiences that the instruments of the time allowed to create. The iconic cover was made by Oscar Paolifio and Walmir Teixeira. This important chapter of progressive rock and national psychedelia returns to the shelves in the excellent quality it deserves.
