Please Please Me - The Beatles
- Label: Parlophone 2012 Reissue
Flying Saucer Attack - Mirror
- Label: Drag City Records
You don't believe in flying saucers, you say? Oh you will after you experience the extra terrestrial attack of Flying Saucer Attack! A year 2000 release that Drag City Records hails as the best record of the new century! What is this record like? Consider it an assault on the senses with space rock, dream pop, and rural psychedelia and that just about sums up FSA. Mirror was mastered at Abbey Road studios in London.
Very Very Best of Crowded House - Crowded House
- Label: Universal Records
Tremendous 2 record set from Crowded House. Yes, they were famous, had hits, but why does it seem they are a little underrated? Maybe because there is a small demo who just know them for the one or two hits they had and pass them off as "one of those bands from the 80's." When in fact, they had a run of great records that stretched into the 1990's. Included are the hits you may know; Something So Strong and Don't Dream It's Over, but also there are several stone cold gems of songs, like, It's Only Natural, Weather With You, Better Be Home Soon, Four Seasons In One Day, Chocolate Cake, Pineapple Head, and possibly one of the greatest songs ever written, Distant Sun.
Blood Visions - Jay Reatard
- Label: Fat Possum
Another artist gone from us way, way too soon, Jay Reatard, who passed away in 2010. In any event, get your garage, punk, DIY, and indie rock sound all from one record.

Artists such as Pup and Arcade Fire have covered his songs. Pitchfork had this record listed in its Top 200 records of the 00's. Reatard also hailed from Memphis, TN
It's A World Of Love & Hope - Flat Five
- Label: Bloodshot Records
Easily one of our favorite records of 2016 and if you were to walk in at any given time, we might be playing this on the shop turntable. It's an amalgam of outstanding Chicago musicians who have been playing on and off together for years, while also performing with other bands. The line-up includes Kelly Hogan, Nora O'Connor, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonnough, and Alex Webster. The record includes some dark humor recorded under the guise of delicious pop production with harmonies that may remind you of the Beach Boys, Beatles, Monkees, or Mamas and Papas. Despite the world climate we may live in, you'll believe it is a world of love and hope after hearing this. Released on Bloodshot Records, this also includes a digital download of the record.
A shop sidenote: Scott Ligon and Casey McDonough of the Flat Five have made in-store appearances here and they are spectacular! We hope to have them back again, usually they have young John Perrin on drums with them.

Great mix of tunes from the third season of the Netflix smash hit Stranger Things. Includes tunes by The Who, Howard Jones, Madonna, Pointer Sisters, Teena Marie, Corey Hart, Wham, Weird Al Yankovic, Foreigner, Patsy Cline, and others. It's heavy on the 80's tunes but not necessarily strictly to the 80's with Patsy Cline, The Who (Baba O'Reilly), and Foreigner (Cold As Ice). It also includes a bonus 7" disc and this set is pressed to two records. Get on your bike and wear tube socks while you listen. Okay, maybe stay off your bike...

Trace - Son Volt
- Label: Warner Brothers (reissue)
One of the more seminal and influential albums of the 1990's and the entire alt-country era. Son Volt's "Trace" straddles rock and punk lines and also provides some of the sweetest sounding Americana music you will ever hear. A definitive "desert island disc" and ranks high among many as one of their favorite records of all time. Includes the quasi-hit "Drown", as well as the timeless classics of "Windfall", "Tear-Stained Eye", "Route", "Loose Ends", and "Mystifies Me". Originally released in 1995, this is the 20 year anniversary reissue. Led by Jay Farrar, this was the first release by Son Volt after the break-up of Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt really threw down the gauntlet - for Farrar himself, for former bandmate Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco fame, of course) and, really, the entire alt-country/Americana genre. "Trace" is that good. Farrar possesses one of the more distinct voices in all of rock.
Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die - Panic at the Disco
- Label: Fueled By Ramen Records
2013 release and the fourth studio album by Las Vegas combo Panic! at the Disco. At this particular time in the bands arc, they are just a three piece band. Includes Miss Jackson, Girls/Girls/Boy, This is the Gospel, and others. The record was produced by Butch Walker. Debuted at Number 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 charts. In other news, here is a cool little FUN FACT if you're in the sports and music nerd Venn Diagram, Vegas Lights was used for the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights goal song! If shopping at our brick n mortar store, look for this in the "New Vinyl" rack and then look for the "Panic" record divider tab!

Closer - Joy Division
- Label: London - Rhino
This reissue from Rhino sounds fantastic on 180g vinyl. Remastered from the original master tapes. The last record Joy Division released before the untimely death of singer Ian Curtis. This includes "Isolation" and "Heart and Soul". As most know, the surviving members of Joy Division went on to form New Order. The unique cover photography was done by Bernard Pierre Wolff. Originally released in 1980. We think it's fine time you replaced your CD with a copy of this classic release on vinyl.

This set was pressed to two 10" records and includes the tunes My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark, The Phoenix, Alone Together, and others, which include guest spots by none other than the likes of Courtney Love, Foxes, Big Sean, and Elton John. Produced by Butch Walker.
Western Stars - Bruce Springsteen
- Label: Columbia Records
A slight change of pace for Bruce Springsteen in 2019 with Western Stars. It's not the big rock show record nor is it as bleak as Nebraska. It has elements of those records, plus a little Seeger Sessions sound. It's a well-produced record that harkens back to some of those early 70's country records, in the best possible way. Included in this record is Hitch Hikin', Western Stars, Tuscon Train, Moonlight Motel, Chasing Wild Horses, and others. While this record is not recorded with the E Street Band, it does include guests from David Sancious, Charlie Giordano, Jon Brion and Soozie Tyrell. This is a 2-record set, gatefold, lyrics, and includes a digital download. And if that's not enough, the back cover has Bruce in front of a rad Dodge Mopar while wearing a cowboy hat.
Indestructible - Rancid
- Label: Hellcat Records
This is a reissue of the 2003 Rancid record Indestructible and is their 6th studio album. Despite its success commercially and critically, some fans pissed and moaned because of its "poppier" sound. Of course they did! And this was before Twitter! In any event, this two record set includes the title track, plus, Fall Back Down, Otherside, Start Now, Memphis, Red Hot Moon, Travis Bickle, Out of Control, and others, for a total of 20 tracks. Produced by Brett Gurewitz.
Nimrod - Green Day
- Label: Reprise Records
The fifth studio album from Green Day and was first released in 1997 and contains, arguably, their most well-known song, Good Riddance (Time of Your Life). Getting beyond their 3-chords and a cloud of dust approach, this is an album that features other instrumentation that wasn't on records like Dookie or Insomniac, things like strings, horns, and harmonicas. Also includes Hitchin' a Ride, Grouch, Redundant, Jinx, Uptight, and others. It's a 15 track record which was cut down from 30 tracks. Find this record in our modest punk bin, where Green Day is listed under "G" and just past the "Punk A-F" record divider...
Year of the Snitch - Death Grips
- Label: Harvest Records
Year of the Snitch, the 2018 release from hip-hop, noise, punk, electronic, band Death Grips. Included on this release, their 6th studio release, is Flies, Shitshow, Streaky, and others. Check them out on vinyl or your favorite listening medium (which should be vinyl, c'mon!) but they are at their finest performing live with their visually stimulating, if not chaotic, live sets. Who are some notable fans? Bjork and Robert Pattinson. William Shatner posted lyrics from their song No Love on his twitter feed.
Unlimited - Bassnectar
- Label: Amorphous Records
The 10th album by San Francisco native, Bassnectar, which debuted at Number 10 on Billboard's Hot 200 upon its release in 2016. Bassnectar stated when making this record that we wanted to create a "sonic collage". We think he's succeeded with this as well as his other releases. A two album set, this LP (Long Play, if you ever wondered) includes 15 tracks that include Reaching Out, Unlimited Combinations, Paracosm, Journey to the Center, and others. Even though he's one of the premier DJ's and Producers in the industry, here's a fun fact; when he was 16 he was in a death metal band called Pale Existence.
Slip Stitch and Pass - Phish
- Label: Jemp Records
Fancy 2019 vinyl release from Phish of 1997's, Slip Stitch and Pass. A two record set that we think you need to replace that CD copy you have because this was never, ever released on vinyl. It's their second official live album, over 75 minutes of music, and was recorded in Germany. Includes covers of Cities from Talking Heads and Jesus Just Left Chicago by ZZ Top. Renowned artist Storm Thorgerson did the cover art. He also came up with album art for the likes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, Yes, Muse, Ween, and others. No word how the human fared against the gigantic ball of yarn...
California Son - Morrissey
- Label: etienne - BMG Records
Record release of cover songs by Morrissey that was released in May of 2019. Includes covers of artists by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Roy Orbison, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, Carly Simon, Dionne Warwick, Phil Ochs, Buffy Sainte-Marie and others. Quite a variety and really covers some ground with these artists. Pick this up and hear them for yourself. Billy Joe Armstrong guests on the Laura Nyro cover, Wedding Bell Blues. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli.
Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden
- Label: Ingrooves - BMG
Get your metal on with this release from Iron Maiden. A sealed reissue, replace that worn out copy you had or the tape that got eaten in a cassette deck in your Camaro in the 1980's! Originally released in 1983, this is the fourth album in Maiden's catalog and features, Flight of Icarus, The Trooper, and Die With Your Boots On.
Here Comes the Cowboy - Mac DeMarco
- Label: Mac's Record Label
The fourth release by singer/songwriter Mac DeMarco on his own record label, called "Mac's Record Label", oddly enough. Includes the title track, Nobody, Choo Choo, K, Finally Alone, Skyless Moon, and others on this 13 track release. Pressed to clear vinyl (as of this writing). Maybe someday they'll have a reissue with the tagline on the hype sticker, "First time on black vinyl" (yes, we've seen these hype stickers). One of the better and up and coming songwriters of this era, catch him on tour if you can.
Father of the Bride - Vampire Weekend
- Label: Columbia Records
Released in May of 2019, the fourth album by Vampire Weekend is already being hailed as an instant classic. A double album in the classic sense of the term (as opposed to a single disc spread out over 2 records) this is a sprawling artistic splash of 18 songs featuring Big Blue, Sunflower, Harmony Hall, 2021, This Life, Unbearably White, and others. It's their first record in 6 years and also their first since Rostam Batmagnlij left the band, though he contributes to the record. It's garnering comparison's to classic double albums like The Beatles White Album and Bruce Springsteen's The River. Other comparisons are being drawn to Beach Boys, Kanye West, Van Morrison, and George Harrison, so that should tell you the styles of this record cut a wide swath.
Anthem of the Peaceful Army - Greta Van Fleet
- Label: Lava Republic
Back in the olden days Frankenmuth, Michigan was best known as being the Christmas Capital of the World and for a place that did mass volume of roasted chicken. Now Frankenmuth is known for the mass volume coming from the amps and vocals of one Greta Van Fleet! Yes, it's their debut full-length record "Anthem of the Peaceful Army"! The band seems to have this polarizing effect on people, but be that as it may, they've been good for the music industry and particularly the rock music industry. Find it here on vinyl.

Elgin, of coarse, is home of Rediscover Records.
