Sly & The Family Stone - Higher! 

Released in celebration of Sly Stone's 70th birthday, Higher! is the first career-spanning anthology to celebrate the musician whose funk has influenced everyone from Miles Davis and Michael Jackson to Public Enemy and the Roots. This 8LP collection offers the chance to experience the songs you know and love but often in alternate versions, including mono singles, demos, instrumental tracks, live concert and television recordings, and more. The box set features 77 tracks, 17 of them previously unreleased.

These tracks are supplemented by a painstakingly detailed 104-page book featuring a liner notes essay, a beautifully-illustrated timeline of Sly's career, track-by-track annotations, rare and uncirculated photography, 45 rpm label and picture sleeve repros, eye-popping vintage concert posters and ticket stubs from Sly & The Family Stone shows, and more. Compiled by Dutch authorities Edwin & Arno Konings, the track-by-track annotations contain excerpts from Thank You, the Koningses' own forthcoming biography of Sly & The Family Stone. (

Faith No More - Album Of The Year

The last album of Faith No More was a worthy goodbye to millions of fans worldwide. Having a new guitarist in their ranks, the band recorded 12 fresh songs in the comfort of bassist Billy Gould's home studio. These sessions produced two hits:  "Ashes To Ashes" and "Last Cup Of Sorrow". Straightforward and concise, the album sequence takes no prisoners and delivers an outstanding Faith No More experience. 

At its release in 1997 Album Of The Year was pressed on LP in small quantities, making original vinyl copies very hard to find. With the reissue of Music On Vinyl, thousands of fans can again enjoy this album the way it should be heard - on wax! To stir up some attention we've thrown in a special first run of 2000 copies on GOLD vinyl – must be seen to be believed. Don't sleep on this one.
  • 180 gram audiophile vinyl
  • First 2000 copies pressed on GOLD coloured vinyl and hand numbered. Afterwards available on black.

She said she and her husband are absolutely delighted with the purchase, and that it will be the latest addition to the already extensive collection of Beatles memorabilia at their home.
