David Bowie's 'Changesonebowie' Vinyl Reissue Up for Pre-Order

Posted by Billy Gil, March 16, 2016 09:44am | Post a Comment


Changesonebowie, one of the most well-known compilations from the late David Bowie, will see a vinyl and CD reissue May 20, 2016.

The first of two "Changesbowie" comps includes his biggest singles from the first part of Bowie's career, including songs like "Space Oddity," "Changes" and "Rebel Rebel." Half of the limited, 180-gram Parophone vinyl reissues comes in clear, half in black (the color's not mentioned on the sleeve and it'll be completely random as far as which will be inside).

Many of Bowie's early albums were reissued on LP last month, shortly after his death Jan. 10. They include The Rise & Fall Of Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars, The Man Who Sold the World, Pinups, Hunky Dory, David Bowie, Aladdin Sane and Bowie at the Beeb.

The Ultimate One Album Wonders Directory

Posted by Eric Brightwell, November 23, 2015 08:59am | Post a Comment

One Album Wonders

The vinyl LP was introduced by Columbia Records in 1948 but the 45 inch single remained the primary media for recorded music until 1966, when LPs overtook them, marking the dawn of the Album Era.
For a variety of reasons, many bands of the Album Era only released one full-length LP, making them “one album wonders.” 

I began the series, One Album Wonders, in July 2014 (the year digital downloads first overtook aluminum discs in sales) and since then have written of about 60 bands whose recorded output was mostly confined to a single album. I had planned on writing about hundreds more but the plug has been pulled so I’ve decided instead to publish my personally compiled directory of them before my time at Amoeba ends in December. Enjoy! 


A Passing Fancy (A Passing Fancy - 1968), A Witness (I Am John’s Pancreas - 1986), A-II-Z (The Witch Of Berkeley - Live - 1980), A'La Rock (Indulge - 1990), Aceium (Wicked Metal - 2004), The Aerovons (Resurrection - 2003), The Affair (Yes Yes To You - 2006), Afterlife (Surreality - 1992), Agentz (Stick to Your Guns - 1986), Aidean (Promises - 1988), Alamo (Alamo - 1970), Alien (Cosmic Fantasy - 1983), Alien (The Pleasure of Leisure - 1998), Alistair Terry (Yonge at Heart - 1985), Alkana (Welcome to My Paradise - 1978), Alkatraz (Doing a Moonlight - 1976), Allen Collins Band (Here, There and Back - 1983), Alliance (We Could Get Used To This - 1988), Alonzo Cruz (Blind Troubador of Oaxaca - 1956), Alpha Centauri (Alpha Centauri - 1977), American Noise (American Noise - 1980), Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe (Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe - 1989), The Animated Egg (The Animated Egg - 1967), Andy Rock (Into the Night - 2012), Annihilation Absolute (Cities - 1985), April 16th (Sleepwalking - 1989), Arcadia (So Red the Rose - 1985), Armageddon (Illusion - 1971), Arzachel (Arzachel - 1969), ATC (Planet Pop - 2000), Avalanche (Pray For The Sinner - 1985), Aviator (Aviator - 1986), The Awful Truth (The Awful Truth - 1990), and Axtion (Look Out for the Night - 1985)
