  • Alex Chilton – From Memphis To New Orleans Some know Alex Chilton as the lead singer of the Boxtops who had a number one hit in 1967 with “The Letter,” others know him from the majestic Beatlesque pop of Big Star or as the name in a song by the Replacements (“Children by the millions sing of Alex Chilton…”) Others know him as the songwriter of the theme song for That 70s Show. He was at the height of his cult star fame in the mid 1980s when he made these recordings. It is some of his best most honest work oddly neglected for some time but delivered here for enthusiasts and neophytes alike. Includes B-A-B-Y, Guantanaamerika, Let Me Get Close to You and many more.

  • Mercury Rev – Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited ‘The Delta Sweete Revisited’ is out February 8th via Partisan Records/Bella Union. In addition to Williams and Sundfør, Mercury Rev are backed on vocals by an unmatched roster of women across a broad range of genres – Norah Jones, Margo Price, Phoebe Bridgers, Hope Sandoval, Vashti Bunyan, Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Lætitia Sadier (Stereolab), Kaela Sinclair (M83) + more. Price’s take on ‘Delta Sweete’ deep cut “Sermon” was picked up everywhere from the NY Times, NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Stereogum + more. Listen here. Originally released at the height of Gentry’s Beatles-eclipsing superstardom following her #1 smash “Ode To Billie Joe,” ‘The Delta Sweete’ is an unrestrained statement of empowerment that dips into everything from swamp-rock, R&B-style horns, and orchestral arrangements. ‘The Delta Sweete Revisited’ is Mercury Rev’s committed and affectionate resurrection of an album that anticipated by three decades their own pivotal expedition through transcendental America, 1998’s ‘Deserter’s Songs.’ Not unlike ‘The Delta Sweete,’ that record merged jazz, folk, and rock with Disney soundtrack fantasia, and heralded Mercury Rev’s rebirth as purveyors of a unique brand of the popular American songbook. David Fricke of Rolling Stone wrote the album’s liner notes, in which he calls the original ‘Delta Sweete’ “one of the greatest albums you have never heard.”
