Silverchair - Frogstomp - Vinyl 2-LP 

Silverchair's 1995 debut album, Frogstomp, faithfully follows the alternative rock tradition of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, which means that the group of Australian teenagers winds up sounding not like their idols, but like Stone Temple Pilots and Bush. For their age, their instrumental capabilities are quite impressive, as the guitars and vocals growl with the force of rockers in their early 20s.

new releases from our friends at MusicOnVinyl

Willie Nelson - To All The Girls...

The new Willie Nelson album To All The Girls… is a collection of newly recorded duets between American musical legend Willie Nelson and a dream list of contemporary Pop-Country women singers, recorded mainly in Nashville. It features a selection of profoundly moving and heartfelt performances of classic songs from America's Country, Pop and Gospel repertoire and more.

His third full-length album of new music to be released in a mere 16 months, To All The Girls… celebrates Willie's 80th birthday year, just like Let's Face The Music And Dance was released in April 2013.

The latter comprises of a range of Pop, Rock, Jazz and Country classics chosen by Nelson, praised by critics and peaking #49 on the Billboard 200. 180 gram audiophile vinyl and Insert

Tedeschi Trucks Band - Made Up Mind

Made Up Mind is the highly anticipated follow-up to Tedeschi Trucks Band's scorching live collection, Everybody's Talkin'. TTB is known for their extraordinary family of musicians, and Made Up Mind continues that tradition as most tracks were penned by husband-and-wife Tedeschi and Trucks along with various friends and co-writers. The album was co-produced by Trucks and Jim Scott (Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco).

Made Up Mind features "Part of Me," a song driven by a classic southern soul groove straight out of Muscle Shoals. The raucous soul-rocker title track "Made Up Mind" demonstrates the full power of the band from the album's first notes. Other highlights are the ├╝ber-funky "Misunderstood", tender ballads like "It's So Heavy" and "Calling Out to You."

Derek Trucks has indisputably matured into one of the finest guitarists of our time, tearing up barnburners with his masterful slide and lead lines while showcasing his easier, more subtle touch on the bluesy "Do I Look Worried."  Brand new album for 2013! 180 gram audiophile vinyl Insert Includes digital download code.

Dream Theater - Once In A Livetime

The first official live album of Dream Theater, Once In A LIVEtime, was released to great critical acclaim in 1998 after recording an intense live show in Paris earlier that year. Their musical skills guarantee a legendary performance, at times resembling Yes' or Emerson, Lake & Palmer's prog prowess.

Highlights include their instrumental tour de force "Ytse Jam" as well as the fan favorites "Pull Me Under", "Lie", "Metropolis" and certain portions of their lengthy "A Change of Seasons" composition.

Combined, this recording takes 2,5 hours to experience from front to back, and so this release deserves all 4 LP's the grooves are pressed on. Available on vinyl for the first time! 180 gram audiophile vinyl Insert Gatefold sleeve

Boston - Don't Look Back 

Lightning never strikes twice in the same place, but when it does, it does so with a vengeance. After gaining huge success with the debut Boston, Boston's main songwriter Tom Scholz worked on the sophomore album for two years and this resulted in yet another perfectly produced piece of art.

Released in 1978, Don't Look Back eventually reached 7 times Platinum. The album contains the radio hit "Don't Look Back", sturdy Rockers like "Party" and "Feelin' Satisfied" and mellow songs like "It's Easy". This stuff is top of the bill and you know it! 180 gram audiophile vinyl Gatefold sleeve Lyric sheet

Mothers Finest - Another Mother Further

Another Mother Further was the second album of Georgia Funk Rock formation Mother's Finest, released in 1977. Opening track "Mickey's Monkey" is a highly effective cover of Smokey Robinson's original, setting the mood for this album from the get go. "Dis Go Dis Way, Dis Go Dat Way" is an ode to Disco's heyday, featuring a hip comping clavinet and percussive outro.

This album rocks and funks at the same time – available on 180 gram audiophile vinyl for the first time!
