New Vinyl Record and Music Releases - August 9, 2011

I have added a couple of new sources for new music releases this week as i continue my quest to have the most comprehensive list of new music each week!

Jay-Z & Kanye West's collaboration called Watch the Throne makes the pop/rap news and is this week's star release. Neil Young is also releasing 'Live On Air/The Lost Tapes,' which has six previously unreleased live tracks for your listening pleasure.

I can strongly recommend Paul McCartney's Chaos And Creation In The Backyard, an appreciated effort by one of the masters of pop music and a reissue from Canadian's Barenaked Ladies with the kid's album called Snacktime.

Vinyl reissues are abundent this week including three by Belle & Sebastian (The Boy with the Arab Strap, If You're Feeling Sinister, Tigermilk), three from Cat Power (Jukebox, The Covers Record and What Would the Community Think) and two from Yo La Tengo (And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out and Painful).

On my radar are some vinyl reissues from my era including three from rock icons Black Sabbath (Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage and probably one of their finest recordings Vol. 4), UFO's The Chrysalis Yeasr: 1973-1979, Jefferson Starship's Red Octopus, Yes with Tales From Topographic Oceans and Styx with The Grand Illusion.

Other vinyl reissues include Guided By Voices with Alien Lanes, Shelby Lynne's Just A Little Lovin' and Willie Nelson's Countryman.
