Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen at 21 21st Anniversary 2xCD


Price:  $18.99


If there is one album fully deserving of a coming of age celebration, it is The Afghan Whigs' Gentlemen. Originally released in October 1993, the album and the band - was seen as the bastard step-child of the alt-rock era and, as the Los Angeles Times noted, is an "overlooked masterpiece." Rhino are proud to present the deluxe edition of the band's landmark album with GENTLEMEN AT 21. The two-disc set features the original album newly remastered along with a bonus disc of seventeen demos, b-sides, and live performances, the great majority of which are previously unreleased.

Jerry Lee Lewis - Rock & Roll Time CD

On Sale Now!
Price: $13.99


There's a different feel to 2014's Rock & Roll Time, the third album Jerry Lee Lewis has made with benefactor and producer Steve Bing. Once again, superstar drummer Jim Keltner co-produces (he sat out 2010's Mean Old Man), and the pair bring the Killer back where he belongs -- right at Sun Studios. In case anybody missed the point, Jerry Lee is placed directly in front of the old Sun building itself on the cover of Rock & Roll Time, underscoring a point the music makes perfectly plain: Jerry Lee is once again singing some of that old-time rock & roll. It's a back-to-basics move, and to that end, Bing and Keltner made the canny decision to dial back the superstar cameos that threatened to overwhelm Lewis on Last Man Standing and Mean Old Man. Some familiar names join Jerry Lee in the studio -- Keith Richards and Ron Wood, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, Nils Lofgren, Doyle Bramhall II, Derek Trucks, and Jon Brion all are here -- but only Shelby Lynne shares the microphone with him, which means the album belongs to nobody but the Killer.

   


Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV CD

On Sale Now!
Price: $16.99


In 1968, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant formed Led Zeppelin, one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, having sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Page brought in Plant, Bonham and Jones to tour as The New Yardbirds. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released its self-titled debut. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which the group was widely considered to be the biggest and most innovative rock band in the world. The Led Zeppelin reissue campaign got off to an remarkable start in June 2014 as deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. The albums achieved similar international success with debuts near the top of the charts in more than a dozen territories, including Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom. For the second round, the band prepared the reissues of Led Zeppelin IV (the third best-selling album in U.S. history) and Houses Of The Holy. As with the previous deluxe editions, both albums have been newly remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album. The second round of reissues begins with one of the most artistically influential and commercially successful albums in the history of music, Led Zeppelin IV. Released in November 1971, the album—which is officially untitled—defined the sound of rock music for a generation with ubiquitous anthems such as "Stairway To Heaven, " "Rock And Roll, " "Black Dog, " and "When The Levee Breaks. " The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, has been certified 23x platinum by the RIAA. The Led Zeppelin IV deluxe editions include unreleased versions of every song heard on the original album including alternate mixes of "Misty Mountain Hop" and "Four Sticks, " mixes of "The Battle Of Evermore" and "Going To California" heavy with guitar and mandolin, and the fabled, alternate version "Stairway To Heaven, " mixed at the Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles which lets fans hear one of the most revered songs of all time as they have never heard it before. Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant – along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham – took the stage at London’s O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records’ founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album.

Rancid - Honor Is All We Know CD

On Sale Now!
Price: $13.99


Rancid's 2014 record Honor Is All We Know is much like their other records in the sense that it is filled with the stories and characters that populate the band s lives, and reflects the cultural and political climate in which it was written and recorded. It has classic Rancid songcraft: two minute songs packed with melody, personally empathetic and politically denunciatory. But Honor Is All We Know is also unique in that it is filled with the growing insight of a band who has been doing this for a while now: it feels natural and organic, written without an agenda or a bone to pick, rather the culmination of lives lived largely with a keen interest in the world and a sense of brotherhood. In the late 1980 s Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman of Rancid were founders of arguably the most influential band from the Bay Area Operation Ivy. Operation Ivy has been cited by everyone from Green Day s Billie Joe Armstrong to Fat Mike of NOFX as the group that most affected the sound of their own bands. Rancid has lead in extensive career since those days back in the East Bay including selling nearly 3 million albums with one Platinum album and one Gold Record under their belts (And Out Come the Wolves, Let s Go). In the midst of anniversaries for both albums, Rancid will be playing some high-profile festival shows in 2015, and the moment has never been better for old and new fans to remind themselves of the cultural force and punk rock power of Rancid.

The Flaming Lips - With a Little Help From My Fwends CD

On Sale Now!
Price: $12.99


Oklahoma's fearless freaks the Flaming Lips reinvent the classic album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with a slew of guests on With a Little Help from My Fwends. No strangers to the covers album, having previously reworked Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon and King Crimson's In the Court of the Crimson King, the Lips, along with an army of guests, artfully transform the album from an intricate pop masterpiece to a fractured, acid-fried freakout. With its skittish and fuzzed-out production and tendency to shift direction on a whim, the album feels as though it's trying to re-create the feeling of hearing an album like Sgt. Pepper's for the first time in 1967, re-creating that feeling that absolutely anything could happen at any moment. Like some of their past collaborations, the album shows that not all fwends are created equal, so even though cuts like "Getting Better" can be pretty uneven, guests like Miley Cyrus and Tegan and Sara on "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Lovely Rita," respectively, provide the band's sound with a new dimension and attitude, providing With a Little Help from My Fwends with the kind of eclectic atmosphere that made the original so charming.
