Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers famously played 20 nights at the legendary Fillmore venue in San Francisco in 1997. 6 of the shows were professionally recorded and this release features some of the high points of the residency. The small venue allowed the band to vary their sets each night; they included re-arranged and distinctive versions of their hits, deep cuts, and many cover versions – paying tribute to the artists that Tom and the band had been influenced by. The 3 LP set includes 33 tracks, 18 of which are covers – 2 hours of music. The tri-fold sleeve includes a 4-page insert.
Ringo & his All-Starr Band recorded live in October 2019 at the iconic Greek Theater in Los Angeles featuring Greg Rolie (Santana), Steve Lukather (Toto), Hamish Stuart (Average White Band), Colin Hay (Men at Work) and Ringo(!!) performing all the classic hits these artist and bands have made famous such as “Black Magic Woman” (Santana), “Rosanna” (Toto), “Pick Up The Pieces” (Average White Band), “Who Can It Be Now?” (Men At Work) and of course “Yellow Submarine”, “Photograph”, “It Don’t Come Easy” and many more from the man himself, Ringo Starr!
From the anthemic “Virginia (Wind In The Night),” an ode to Russell’s native state to which he’s recently relocated (“If it was solely up to me, I’d live her for the rest of my life,” he says), to the minimal but momentous “Tiebreaker,” Every Shade of Blue showcases The Head and the Heart’s unique ability to dip its toes into a variety of musical genres. It’s the band’s knack for supreme melody, however, that remains a constant. And it’s why many of the songs on Every Shade of Blue, including the slow-rolling title track, “Every Shade of Blue,” which Russell says has “a Sinatra vibe,” are undeniable pop-radio missiles. The band’s ability to create music that appeals to listeners’ common denominator, Russell says, is something he not only won’t shy away from but is immensely proud of.
With ‘Quo’ing In - The Best Of The Noughties’ Status Quo are delivering an era spanning compilation taking in their greatest hits from the band’s output thus far in the new millennium, which includes 5 Top Ten studio albums, and many fan favorites.

A best-of unlike any other, ‘Quo’ing In’ is the sound of a band rediscovering their mojo, shot through with a sense of fun and that irresistible Quo gang mentality. This Limited Edition 3CD Deluxe Digipak features a bonus disc with 10 previously unavailable live classics, newly mixed in 2022.

John Carpenter has been responsible for much of the horror genre’s most striking soundtrack work in the fifteen movies he’s both directed and scored. The themes can instantly flood his fans’ musical memory with imagery of a menacing shape stalking a babysitter, a relentless wall of ghost-filled fog, lightning-fisted kungfu fighters, or a mirror holding the gateway to hell.
The music on Lost Themes is there for Carpenter’s acolytes to visualize their own nightmares.
As is Carpenter’s style, repetition is the key to the thundering power of these tracks, their energy swirling with shredding chords, soaring organs, unnerving pianos and captivating percussion. Horror fans will be reminded of Carpenter’s past works, as well as ancestors like Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bellsand Goblin’s Suspiria. “They’re little moments of score from movies made in our imaginations,” Carpenter says. “Now I hope it inspires people to create films that could be scored with this music.”
Sacred Bones is now repressing this incredible debut by the one and only master of horror in a bunch of new colors in celebration of the label’s 15th year anniversary.
