VAN MORRISON - DUETS: RE-WORKING THE CATALOGUE - RCA
On Duets: Re-Working The CatalogueVan Morrison and the guests selected and recorded some of his songs from the catalog of 360 songs across his career. Deliberately steering away from his more well-known classics, Van enlisted some of the artists he most respects to perform these songs with him to re-craft and re-imagine them. The album was recorded in his home town of Belfast and London in the United Kingdom over the last year, using a variety of musicians and fresh arrangements.

THE CRIBS - FOR ALL MY SISTERS - Arts & Crafts
The UK rock trio's sixth studio album produced by Ric Ocasek of the Cars! It follows 2013’s career spanning ‘Payola’ collection and 2012’s Top 10 album ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’ and the first for new North American label Arts & Crafts.

THE GO! TEAM - THE SCENE BETWEEN - Memphis Industries
Last album Rolling Blackouts became a natural end chapter for The Go! Team with members splintering off into different musical projects, get married, teach, experience real life. Bandleader Parton took the opportunity to return to the working methods he’d used at the origins of the band – crate digging, trying to nail a feeling, writing and recording the album by himself. 

Kansas - Miracles Out Of Nowhere

KANSAS - MIRACLES OUT OF NOWHERE - Epic
Kansas - Miracles Out Of NowhereMiracles Out of Nowhere (Blu-ray/CD) is the documentary film that tells the uplifting true story of the classic rock band Kansas and its climb from impossible obscurity to stadium headliners.
