Jackson Browne – Downhill From Everywhere b/w A Little Soon To Say CDEP/12” (Inside Recordings)
Two singles from the forthcoming new studio album from Jackson Browne to be released in October 2020. On “A Little Soon To Say” Browne sings “I wanna see you holding out your light/I wanna see you light the way/But whether everything will be alright/It’s just a little soon to say.” He explains, “[I was] thinking about the generation – the Parkland students, and Greta Thunberg, and the young people who have been very vocal, saying, ‘You’re not making any real attempt to change things in a way for us to have the planet you had.’ How do you pass this mess on to the next generation, the future generations?”

Morbid Angel – Altars Of Madness – Ultimate Collection [Reissue/1989] 2xCD (Earache)
Expanded two CD edition includes bonus live album Juvenila. Altars Of Madness is the debut studio album by Florida-based death metal band Morbid Angel. It is one of the earliest examples of death metal and is considered to have helped pioneer the sound along with Possessed’s Seven Churches in 1985 and Death’s Scream Bloody Gore in 1987, and set a new precedent for heaviness and extremity, both musically and lyrically.
Prince – The Rainbow Children [Reissue/2001] CD/2xLP (Legacy)
Prince’s twenty-fourth studio album, The Rainbow Children was initially sold on Prince’s trailblazing website the NPG Music Club. It was the first album (outside of the works he distributed through his NPG Music Club) to be released under the name Prince since he had changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol in 1993, and it was his first fully independent release to be issued without any major label backing. The Rainbow Children is a concept album intertwining Prince’s recurring themes of spirituality and sexuality, love and social consciousness, set in a metaphoric utopian narrative. Musically, the album showcased a new jazz-influenced direction for Prince, with live drums and expansive horn charts.
