Miles Davis – ‘Early Minor: Rare Miles From The Complete In a Silent Way Sessions’ (12” Single)
During the year between the dissolution of his ‘60s quintet and the groundbreaking ‘Bitches Brew’, Miles Davis recorded a number of transitional sessions creating music of lyrical beauty, culminating in the masterful album In a Silent Way. Three superb pieces; ‘Splashdown’, ‘Early Minor’ and ‘The Ghetto Walk’, —come to vinyl for general release for the first time ever.
Jimi Hendrix – ‘Merry Christmas and Happy New Year EP’ (12” Picture Disc)
As Christmas 1969 beckoned, Jimi Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox, and drummer Buddy Miles (christened as Band Of Gypsys by Hendrix) engaged in extensive rehearsals for their highly anticipated appearances at The Fillmore East in New York. To mark the occasion in his own inimitable fashion, Jimi readied this special medley of holiday favorites to celebrate both Christmas and the dawning of a new decade.
Kings Of Leon – ‘Day Old Belgian Blues’ (12” Single – Previously Unreleased On Vinyl)
Recorded on a European tour to promote their sophomore album, 2004’s ‘Aha Shake Heartbreak’, ‘Day Old Belgian Blues’ captures early Kings of Leon’s raw sense of urgency. This live EP, featuring versions of ‘The Bucket’, ‘Four Kicks’, ‘Molly’s Chambers’ and more, makes its vinyl debut.
Willie Nelson – ‘Sometimes Even I Can Get Too High’ b/w ‘It’s All Going To Pot’ (7” Single)

Elvis Presley – ‘American Sound Sessions 1969’ (2LP – Previously Unreleased On Vinyl)
1969 was a pivotal year for The King. Fresh from the success of the ’68 Comeback Special, a revitalized Elvis headed to American Sound Studios with producer Chips Moman and a crack group of local session musicians. ‘American Sound Sessions 1969’, available for the first time on vinyl, features rare and unreleased outtakes from these legendary sessions.
Joe Satriani – ‘Surfing With The Alien (Deluxe Edition)’ (2LP – Previously Unreleased On Vinyl)

Jeff Buckley – ‘Live On KCRW: Morning Becomes Eclectic’ (1LP – Previously Unreleased)
