It’s a new album, but one assembled from songs and outtakes Bruce has been amassing for the last few years: we’ll take it (in the hope that this new album means Bruce is in a vault mood for the rest of the year)! (Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. – both with exclusive DVD of the entire Born in the U.S.A. album live on the Wrecking Ball tour)
Elvis Presley, The Movie Soundtracks (RCA/Sony Music U.K.)
Lone Justice, This is Lone Justice: The Vaught Tapes (Omnivore)
A spirited studio set cut two years before the band’s acclaimed debut album on Geffen Records. A must for rockabilly fans!
A killer career-spanning compilation from the ex-Screaming Trees frontman, featuring a dozen unreleased tracks.
Lucinda Williams, Lucinda Williams: Deluxe Edition (Thirty Tigers)
First released on Rough Trade Records and long out of print, the album with some of Williams’ best known compositions (“Passionate Kisses,” “I Wanted to See You So Bad,” “Changed the Locks”) is expanded with not only the live bonus tracks from a previous remaster but another contemporaneous live show that’s never been released before.
Li’l Abner: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Columbia/Sony Masterworks)
The long-unavailable soundtrack to the 1959 adaptation of the 1956 musical, featuring a song score by Johnny Mercer & Gene DePaul and arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle, is finally released as an on-demand CD title. (CD-R/DD: My Play Direct)
