Nineteen eighty-two was one of Alice Cooper’s’ lost years’, when Ol ‘Black Eyes was so steeped in alcoholism that he recorded new albums by divine will and memory. muscular The most shocking thing about the Special Forces clash of 81, however, was how unlucky it was; her body could really beat a decent record like a modern Promethean wonder and carry on, on tour, like Frankenstein’s monster. That’s where this Apollo live album comes in; Cooper may have sung in amazement as he was dressed as a pirate who had escaped a Dalí painting, but he still looked awesome Only three songs here have been released yet, the rest are a mix of classics expected (« I’m Eighteen », « Only Women Bleed »), contemporary hits (« Clones (We are all) », a cover of « Seven and Seven Is »), and curiosities like « Generation Landslide », which ‘he had remodeled for special forces with military drums – Kory Grow

The groundbreaking recordings Miles Davis made in his electric phase from the late 1960s were as much about the innovative editing of producer Teo Macero as it was about live improvisation That means there are tons of revealing results from that era. Last year, Legacy Recordings gifted Record Store Day buyers with a 1969 extras album, In a Silent Way; now they’re following it, appropriately enough, with two albums taken from the extremely creative studio environment that led to Davis’ 1970 double album, Bitches Brew. Really dedicated fans may have heard this music on the The Complete Bitches Brew Sessions set, but the RSD version offers a more affordable way to get lost in Miles’ radical jazz-rock reinvention – Simon Vozick-Levinson

Judd Apatow – a huge Zevon fan who honors the late songwriter with a tribute show in Los Angeles every year – has compiled this set of his favorite Zevon tracks It contains well-known songs (a live « Werewolves of London « , » Desperados Under The Eaves « ) and some obscurities ( » The Indifference of Heaven « by the underrated Mutineer) Zevon died of mesothelioma in 2003; part of the proceeds will be donated to the asbestos-related disease awareness organization – Angie Martoccio

The ’90s saw an unprecedented boom in underground groups enlisted in the major leagues of the big labels, but for the most part the thrill was short-lived Clutch is one of the few survivors of this surreal moment: after Some massive efforts on labels like EastWest, Columbia and Atlantic which have earned them a solid cult following and a string of well-received independent releases, the eccentric hard-rock from Maryland founded their own label, Weathermaker, in 2008, and became fully DIY This huge, limited-edition vinyl box brings together everything they’ve released since, including career highlights like 2013 Earth Rocker and 2015 Psychic Warfare, two live collections, a rarities record and reissues mid-period favorites like Blast Tyrant from 2004 Goodies like a rotating carpet and a signed lithograph complete the collection, a beautiful monument to a band who – like Weatherma’s name ker says it – has sailed a changing industry better than most – Hank Shteamer

Who’s landmark 1967 Monterey Pop Festival set was pirated for decades, but it’s finally appearing on vinyl as a Record Store Day release. They only played six songs, but performances of « Substitute « , » Happy Jack « and, above all, » My Generation « were so explosive that the only way Jimi Hendrix could follow them was to set his guitar on fire. – Andy Greene

This line-up is yet another bastard son of Lenny Kaye’s classic Nuggets line-ups – and that’s no bad Double Whammy! contains 16 raw and shimmering rock dance tunes, some of which have already been released, with a few familiar names The party begins with an all-new version of Count Five’s acid-rock classic « Psychotic Reaction » and sets the tone for tunes like Jack Bedient and the Chessmen’s Guitar-Wiggling « Double Whammy » and The Music Machine’s Farfisa-tinged « The People in Moi » As with Kaye’s favorite nuggets, the songs here are almost as good as the signs of the time like « 96 Tears « and » Incense and Peppermints « and would keep an Animal House style frat party going long enough until it was time to pick another garage- Rock comp (possibly RSD Nuggets’ latest knockoff, Behind the Dykes) – K Grow up

Former bandmates Reed and Cale put aside their differences for this 1990 song cycle about their late mentor and friend Andy Warhol – the two musicians’ only full studio collaboration outside of the first two albums by Velvet Underground With its tender tales of Warhol’s life story (« Work ») and stormy instrumental clashes (« Trouble With Classicists »), it’s a strangely sweet homage to one of the key artistic figures of 20th century, and now it’s available on vinyl as a two LP for its 30th anniversary – SVL

It was fabulously uncool worshiping Black Sabbath in the early 80s, a time when primo heavy metal meant Megadeth riffs, Van Halen solos and flashy tunes about partying, fucking and, if there’s time, worshiping Satan No one told the obsessives The Washington, DC The doom-metal team – led by a dude who was implausibly named « Wino » – played as slowly as they could and sang dismal lyrics about feeling like a forgotten misfit, stuck in the « normal » world Of course no one noticed and the Obsessed didn’t get a proper record deal for years 90, after Wino joined the greatest death row inmates Saint Vitus The 1999 Incarnate comp brought together many of the band’s great lost tracks (including surprising covers of Skynyrd and Grand Funk) from the ’80s and’ 90s, and this new ‘ultimate edition’ features four unreleased tracks and Wino’s backing notes. – even —K Growing up

Six years ago, Freddie Gibbs, the dexterous Midwestern speaker, and SoCal sample maestro, Madlib, teamed up for a refreshing feature called Piñata This reissue of RSD gives it a years-style cover. 70 which fits Gibbs’ description of the album as « a Blaxploitation gangster movie on wax » MadGibbs is one of the best rapper / producer duos of the past decade – and with new half-speed mastering, their first exit should ring louder than ever – SVL

This 1970 instrumental version of The Beatles’ Abbey Road, reinterpreted in the groovy, soulful style of house band Stax Records in their prime, is a fun journey for any fan of either act. the album takes Paul McCartney’s sequencing approach one step further, filling the album with quiet mixes (see the pleasant Sunday afternoon rendition of « Because / you never give me your money ») C ‘is a winning combination of two of the greatest pop sounds of the 60s – SVL
