  1. José González - Local Valley (City Slang)
    Recordstore Exclusive Translucent Red Vinyl LP + Signed Print, Limited Edition Green LP, Black LP, CD

    Very few artists have managed to become quite so celebrated worldwide, quite as quietly as José González has. His long-awaited fourth album is a welcome reminder that you don't have to be loud to be heard. Local Valley embodies his singular ability to communicate with modesty and power better than ever before - his signature melodic and metrical hypnotism meets bittersweet pastoralism, and becomes a truly wonderful thing.

    Recordstore Exclusive: Translucent Red Vinyl LP + Signed Print in Gatefold Sleeve w/ lyrics, printed inner sleeve and download code, strictly limited to 1000 copies. This won't last long.
  2. Shunned from all editions of the album cause it flopped :(
  3. I’m scared someone forgot to click send on the email to the factories with the details of that pressing. I know it’s so busy but it’s weird there’s still no preorder...

  4. I know, when was this announced? October? I don't even remember.
  5. Nina Simone, The Montreux Years and Etta James, The Montreux Years 2LP editions in stores 5/28

    Montreux Jazz Festival and BMG launch “The Montreux Years,” featuring brand-new CD and vinyl collections of legendary performances from festival’s 55-year history and rare recordings of the world’s most esteemed artists from “Montreux Sounds,” the extensive collection of audio-visual material festival co-founder Claude Nobs.

    Montreux Jazz Festival and BMG today announce the forthcoming releases of Nina Simone: The Montreux Years and Etta James: The Montreux Years on Friday, May 28, 2021. The live albums, which will be available in multiple-format configurations, including double LP and two-disc CD editions, feature sublime collections of the iconic musicians’ finest Montreux Jazz Festival performances, including previously unreleased material, all restored to their full glory and more. The audio will also be available on digital download and streaming services.

    Simone and James’ albums are the first releases of Montreux Jazz Festival and BMG’s brand-new collection series “The Montreux Years.” The collections will uncover legendary performances by the world’s greatest artists alongside rare and never-before-released recordings from the festival’s rich 55-year history, with mastering performed by Tony Cousins at London’s iconic Metropolis Studios, incorporating MQA to capture the original sound of these special live performances. Each collection will be accompanied by exclusive liner notes and previously unseen photography.

    Nina Simone’s story from the late ’60s to the ’90s can be told through her celebrated appearances at the famed festival. Taking to the Montreux stage for the first time on June 16, 1968 for the festival’s second edition, Simone built a lasting relationship with the event and its co-creator and director Claude Nobs. This unique trust and electricity can be clearly felt on the recordings.

    Simone’s multi-faceted and radical story is laid bare on Nina Simone: The Montreux Years. From a glorious and emotional 1968 performance to her fiery and unpredictable concert in 1976 (one of the festival’s most remarkable performances ever witnessed), the collection includes recordings from all five of Simone’s Montreux concerts: 1968, 1976, 1981, 1987, and 1990.

    Featuring rare and previously unissued material from Nobs’ extensive trove of recorded material (Montreux Sounds), the release will thrill Nina Simone devotees worldwide with its inclusion of the powerful “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free,” poignant and fearless “Four Women,” and Simone’s hauntingly beautiful performance of “Ne Me Quitte Pas.”

    A spine-tingling version of Janis Ian’s searing and potent “Stars,” which Simone covered for the very first time during her 1976 Montreux performance, sits alongside her bold and electrifying 1990 re-imagining of Bob Marley’s ballad “No Woman No Cry.” The collection closes with the encore from Simone’s final Montreux Jazz Festival concert and one of her most-loved and best-known recordings, the exuberant “My Baby Just Cares for Me,” showcasing the deep and multidimensional facets of Simone’s life and music.

    The CD edition of Nina Simone: The Montreux Years will also include Simone’s 1968 landmark concert in full, the first time the entire concert will be available on CD.

    Etta James: The Montreux Years is a treasure trove of timeless classics, powerful and electrifying performances and raw, soaring vocals by one of the greatest-ever female vocalists. The collection, featuring recordings from James’ live at Montreux concerts in 1977, 1978, 1989, 1990, and 1993, encapsulates and reflects Etta’s dynamic artistry and long-lasting impact.

    Spanning three decades, Etta James: The Montreux Years offers deeply personal and intimate snapshots of James’ phenomenal career, from one of her earliest successes, the infectious and endlessly elegant “Something’s Got a Hold on Me,” to a medley of “At Last,” “Trust in Me,” and “Sunday Kind of Love” (a fusion of highlights from the early ’60s), to the raw and emotional “I’d Rather Go Blind” and soulful horn-driven “Tell Mama.” The collection closes with “Baby What You Want Me to Do,” James’ homage to Jimmy Reed and the encore of her 1978 concert.

    In 1975, Nobs captured a significant moment of musical history—Etta James’ very first concert in Europe, performing at the festival’s ninth edition. The CD edition of Etta James: The Montreux Years will include highlights of this special landmark concert, held at Montreux Casino July 11, 1975.

    Thierry Amsallem, Claude Nobs’ Universal Legatee, Chair/CEO of Montreux Sounds and Chair of Claude Nobs Foundation, says: “The Montreux Jazz Festival has always been a leading showcase for the international music scene, as well as a meeting place for musicians and music lovers. The magic of Montreux lay in the encounters between musicians. There were unique events that will never be repeated. The idea was to allow artists to get off the beaten track and avoid replaying their usual repertoire. But here, we treated them like royalty and offered them the best conditions in the world, in terms of sound quality and audio-visual recording technology.”

    Nina Simone: The Montreux Years and Etta James: The Montreux Years are the first releases of Montreux Jazz Festival and BMG’s upcoming multi-format live album collection series. Further “The Montreux Years” releases are soon to be announced.

  7. Live 70s albums with super cheap rights of TV broadcasts who were on the CD bargain bin for years for five euros now on vinyl for £27.99 is a scream.

    They need to have a set of stickers with Olivias record to recreate the cover, would be amazing marketing.

  9. Guys, do you think there is any chance that Urban Outfitters are going to give us a repress of Nelly's Loose for the 15th Anniversary? They did that before with Gwen's L.A.M.B. so my hopes are high. Are there any rumours?
  10. I think this is inevitable at some point in the near future.

  11. Thinking of oddly random retailer exclusives, like the only existing non-picture disc variant of Reputation for FYE and that random Dido repress as a Books-A-Million (?) exclusive.
  12. Poe's Haunted also having its only press at Books-A-Million.

  13. Their foray into vinyl exclusives didn't even last, I think they pretty much abandoned it now, which makes these pressings even more random.

    I'm not even the biggest fan of her, but a solid cover and color variant will get my sale (dd).
  15. *hugs 'No Angel'*

    Didn't know it was so scarce. Even more wow is I managed to get it shipped to the UK!
  16. Taylor’s US website says the Fearless (Taylor’s Version) vinyl “ships on or around November 19th” now.

  17. I feel like they might not have ordered enough from the factory (hence why it’s only sold on her store and not through Amazon yet) and they’ve sold all of the stock available for August so they’re doing a second pressing but the soonest it could be done is November? So it won’t affect anyone who’s preordered already, but anyone who orders from now on will be getting a second batch?
