Amoeba New Vinyl Arrivals

#AmoebaCrateDigginInTheCrateInTheCrate  There's such a bounty of new vinyl releases to arrive into Amoeba Music over the past week, both brand new titles and reissues of older and out of print titles, that this Ameoblog just scratches the surface. Check here for all recently released vinyl titles in LP, 10",  7” and 12” and box-sets. Barry White The 20th Century Records Albums (1973-1979) [Box Set] (9LP) (Island/Def Jam) is one of the week’s new standout vinyl releases that encapsulates the prolific seventies back catalog of the iconic smooth soul singer who prematurely passed at age 58 back in 2003. Even better is the fact that Island/Def Jam have reissued this as both the nine LP box set (also a CD box set) and as nine individually reissued albums for those who may already have some of the albums in their collections.

These nine Barry White albums include the October 1973 release Stone Gon' LP that featured White’s huge 1974 hit “Never, Never Gonna Give You Up.” The other eight reissued White albums are I’ve Got So Much to Give LP (1973), Can’t Get Enough LP (1974), Just Another Way to Say I Love You LP (1975), Let the Music Play LP (1976), Is This Whatcha Wont? LP (1976), Barry White Sings for Someone You Love LP (1977), The Man LP (1978)  and I Love To Sing The Songs I Sing LP (1979).

Friday Records
have just re-released the late great David Bowie’s 2002 album Heathen in four different colored vinyl versions. The critically acclaimed twelve track LP, that features such Bowie penned songs as "Slip Away" and "Slow Burn" as well as covers of Neil Young's "I've Been Waiting For You" and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's "I Took A Trip On A Gemini Spaceship," has been reissued as Heathen gold vinyl LP, Heathen red & orange swirl vinyl LP, Heathen orange swirl vinyl LP,  and Heathen brown-white-gray swirl vinyl LP.  

have reissued on vinyl a handful of Bruce Springsteen albums over the past week that include 1995’s Ghost Of Tom Joad LP, 1993’s Bruce Springsteen In Concert/MTV Plugged 2LP set, 1992’s Lucky Town LP, and 1987’s Tunnel of Love 2LP set. The Grammy Award winning album (1988 Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo) included the popular singles "Tunnel Of Love," "Brilliant Disguise," "One Step Up", "Tougher Than the Rest", and "Spare Parts."

Among the new titles on vinyl this week are Anna DeSilva & Phew’s Island 2LP  (Shouting Out Loud!), electronica act Anchorsong’s Cohesion LP  (Tru Thoughts Records), and hard-rocking, heavy metal creators Crafts Total Soul Rape LP (Season of Mist).

                                   Homeboy Sandman & Edan Humble Pi LP (Stones Throw)

Emcee Homeboy Sandman has joined forces with producer/DJ/MC Edan to form a hip-hop power duo and record the new Humble Pi LP  that's just one of the many exciting new hip-hop releases to arrive into Amoeba this week including such others as Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz's Mona Lisa (pictured left) and others listed down below. More of an EP than a full-length album, the seven track vinyl release from Edan and Homeboy Sandman via Stones Throw Records may only clock in at 23 minutes but those are all killer and no filler 23 minutes of satisfying hip-hop; just as one would expect from this super-gifted pairing.

Humble Pi LP is the first release from Queens NY emcee Homeboy Sandman this year, following both last year's solo Veins and his latest Aesop Rock collaboration in their Lice series; Tripe Fat Lice via Rhymesayers and Stones Throw.  Included in the brand new seven song track list are such bangers as "Rock & Roll Indian Dance," "Grim Seasons,"  "#NeverUseTheInternet  and "The Gut." See the just published accompanying music video below for "The Gut" on which Homeboy Sandman is joined on vocals by Edan blesses the mic for a short segment. Mail-order Humble Pi LP with free shipping in USA.
