New releases and pre-orders 15th of March 2019

It is another great week for new albums and 45’s. There are good new Soul Cds from Marc Staggers and Rockie Robbins. It’s a massive week for Jazz with great new albums from Dwight Trible (in now on CD and Black Vinyl, pre-order Coloured LP delayed until 19th April) , UK keyboardist Sarah Tandy on Jazz Refreshed and Comet is Coming (Vinyl likely to be limited on all of these). Robert Glasper band August Green album is finally available on CD and LP, and Snarky Puppy new album is in on CD, pre-order LP for next week.

Jazz Vinyl

There are some amazing Jazz Vinyl LP reissues this week, please order early as these are already sold out at distribution so are unlikely to be in stock for long. Clifford Jordan ‘Glass bead Games’ is one of, if not the best album on the Strata East label , now on Pure Pleasure Analogue 180gm Vinyl this may be the best ever pressing of this great album. Don Rendell/Ian Carr’s in demand five Landsdown series albums have a limited run on Jazzman., get them while you can. Ronald Mesquita’s classic Brazilian album is finally reissued on CD and LP.

Essential albums for less than a tenner and a handful of new 45s

There are four more 3 essential album cds on Verve, as bargain for under a tenner !
It’s also a great week for 45’s. We are proud to reissue Barbara Lynn’s fantastic double sider with the Modern soul dancer ‘Movin on a groove’ and ‘Disco Music’, on a regular 45 plus a limited numbered DJ Copy whilst stocks last. Margie Joseph’s two Volt crossover tracks are on one 45, and there are good reissues of Cajun heart and Jeff Perry classics. We also have a limited quantity of the Brilliant new 45 from Carlton Jumel Smith one of the best retro tracks in recent times. Also a good crossover northern and funk 45 from Syl Foreman plus a few copies of some hard to find Athens 45 from a warehouse find. Ernest Ernie 45’s arrived during the week and all pre-orders have been sent yesterday or today. We may have a couple of copies left in the store.


Pre-order for next week for Chelsea Wilson, and the week after the Marvin Gaye ‘You’re the man “2LP – Cd due out end of April. You can see all the pre-order titles here.
