Massive Attack Vinyl Reissues Coming Soon

Massive Attack vinyl reissues

On December 23rd, pioneering English electronica duo Massive Attack are reissuing three essential albums on 180-gram vinyl. Formerly a trio, original members Robert "3D" Del Naja and Grant "Daddy G" Marshall changed the course of dance music, slowing it down and infusing it with hip-hop rhythms to create a musical hybrid that would establish Massive Attack as a major presence in the music world and help open the doors for collaborators/fellow travelers Tricky and Portishead. Unfortunately, the group's early albums have been hard to find on vinyl for several years, unless you were lucky enough to score a used copy or a pricey import. But that's about to change soon, and here's why we're delighted to bring each LP home and put the needle on the record.

Blue Lines

Blue Lines

With the release of their debut LP Blue Lines in 1991, Massive Attack put themselves and the whole Bristol scene on the map. Fusing elements of hip-hop, reggae, soul, and electronica, the album features classic tracks "Lately," "Daydreaming," and "Unfinished Sympathy," with contributions from Shara Nelson and Horace Andy.

Beck Vinyl Reissues

The inimitable Beck has announced he's reissuing his entire Interscope/Geffen/DGC catalog on vinyl, with the first round of releases out on December 2nd. This is great news for fans, as many of Beck's most beloved releases hit stores in the era when CDs were king, which means finding a vinyl copy of your favorite LP can get pretty expensive. That's all about to change this Friday, however, when the first three reissue albums arrive in our stores. Here's what's on the way.

Odelay

Odelay

Beck's second LP is perhaps his most famous, with classic tracks like "Where It's At," "Devils Haircut," and "The New Pollution." Not surprisingly, Odelay is Beck's top-selling album of all time and consistently ranks in roundups of the best albums of the '90s. Odelay took home the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 1997, and Beck received nods for Album of the Year and Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.

Weezer Vinyl Reissues

This fall marks the twentieth anniversary of Weezer's Pinkerton album, a touchstone in the band's catalog. Fittingly, perhaps, the LP was finally certified platinum last month. Now, with their sophomore album reaching bona fide classic status, the timing seems right for Geffen to dust off the band's first six releases and give them the 120-gram vinyl reissue treatment. The new pressings are due for an October 28th release, but until then, take a peak at our roundup of what makes each one special.

Blue Album


Weezer (Blue Album)

Weezer's legendary 1994 debut was recorded by Ric Ocasek at Electric Lady Studios in New York. The LP features beloved tracks like "Buddy Holly," "Say It Ain't So," and "Undone - The Sweater Song."
