Anthony Phillips

Private Parts & Pieces I - IV (5 cd box set pre-order)

An Anthony Phillips and Jonathan Dann curated 5cd compilation of the first four Private Parts & Pieces albums (with a total of 18 bonus tracks), along with an additional 18 track bonus disc of previously unreleased material.

The Private Parts & Pieces I - IV box set is the definitive statement on these classic, intimate albums and includes a lavish booklet with an essay by Jonathan Dann.

KoMaRa (cd pre-order)

David Kollar (guitar, bass, electronic textures), Pat Mastelotto (drums) and Paolo Raineri (trumpet & audio mangling) are KoMaRa.

The band's self-titled debut album is based on a dark, deviant and explicit detective story. It reflects the mysterious circumstances of an abduction and the ultimate demise of the abductee. The recording is predominantly instrumental but includes occasional vocals by Raineri, Leashya and Bill Munyon.

The unnerving artwork byTool's Adam Jones underlines the album's provocative theme.

Pre-order for 17th July shipping.


Like It Is - At The Mesa Arts Center (various formats pre-order)

A companion release to Like it Is - Yes at the Bristol Hippodrome, Like It Is - Yes At The Mesa Arts Center offers two of the band's classic albums (Close To The Edge and Fragile) performed in their entirety on August 12th 2014.

Available in 2cd/1dvd, double vinyl and Blu-ray versions.

Pre-order for July 6th release.

Pre-order for 28th August release.


Black Death And Beyond (triple cd box set pre-order)

ExitůStage Left is the second - and arguably best - Rush live album from 1981. High-quality double vinyl edition in gatefold cover with download card.

Third World War

Third World War (cd pre-order)

A 2015 Esoteric label of the classic 1970 Third World War album.

Remastered from the original tapes, this edition includes two bonus tracks and features a booklet with restored artwork and an essay.

Retrospectively seen as a precursor to Punk, Terry Stamp and Jim Avery's band alternated between the brutal (Ascension Day, Preaching Violence) and lyrical (the opening section of the two part Stardom Road suite) to produce something out of time then and now.

Pre-order for 28th August release.

Howling For The Highway Home / Bootlace Johnnie And The Ninety-Nines (2cd bundle)

The two Burning Shed label Terry Stamp releases available for a special bundle price of ú5.99.
