Surf duo Jan & Dean’s “comedy” album was intended as a contractual obligation, an unfunny joke that was rightly rejected, yet bowdlerized by their label after Jan Berry’s near-fatal car accident. Fifty-one years later, this reissue presents the album as it was meant to be heard.
Taken from the Rock Candy Records release, For Madmen Only.
The duo Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman’s third album was a sophisticated pop album that should have been their entrée to a wider audience. This deluxe reissue of Eroica proves the album has stood the test of time.
Taken from the 3 Loop Music Release, Doppelgänger (25th Anniversary Expanded Edition).
Taken from the Analog Africa release, Stay Up Zimbabwe.
Taken from the WRWTFWW release, Voice of Taurus.

Taken from the Edsel Records release, Buzzin’ Fly: Live Anthology 1968-1973.
Taken from the forthcoming Omnivore Recordings release, A Man Called Destruction.
