Now Available: Circles Around the Sun, Interludes for the Dead

If you're a Dead Head, then you probably thought that November wasn't going to get any better for you than it was when you picked up your copy of the Fare Thee Well album, but…okay, well, that actually might be true, come to think of it, but we can at least offer you another opportunity to put a smile on your face, courtesy of Circles Around the Sun.

Record Store Day Reminder
Tomorrow, we here at Rhino will be celebrating Thanksgiving, so we’re going to do our best to be as far away from our desks as possible, but because we’ll be absent tomorrow, we wanted to make sure that we posted this reminder today: the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday, of course, but it’s also a special Record Store Day, too, and we’ll be releasing eight limited-edition vinyl offerings for your purchasing pleasure.

Earlier this year, we reissued Supergrass's debut album, I Should Coco, on 180-gram vinyl, referring to it as “an exuberant pop album” and giddily describing it as “one of the true gems of the Britpop era.” We stand by both of those descriptions, as most anyone would if they've heard songs like “Alright,” “Lenny,” “Mansize Rooster,” and “Caught by the Fuzz,” which is why we're so excited to announce that we are celebrating the occasion of the album's 20th anniversary by expanding I Should Coco into a three-disc set.

Rhino Factoids
There are plenty of things that would probably qualify as being more punk rock than appearing on a syndicated court show, but there was still something kind of cool when – 18 years ago today – John Lydon found himself fighting a claim of lost wages and civil battery filed against him by drummer Robert Williams on Judge Judy.

Doing a 180: Sisters of Mercy, The Floodland Era Collection
Spinal Tap might've been the band that popularized the phrase “none more black,” but Sisters of Mercy have made a career out of it: they are amongst the gothiest of all the goth bands, and they've delivered some truly bleak material that has nonetheless managed to fill more than a few dance floors over the years.

Aquarium Drunkard

I grew up in Atlanta, and every Thanksgiving (as far back as I can remember) one of the local FM radio stations would play “Alice’s Restaurant” in its entirety – all 18+ minutes of it – several times throughout the day. As traditions go, it was a fine one. One that is still with me, today.

ALICE MAY BROCK, born in Brooklyn, New York, on February 28, 1941. A Pisces … Grew from a difficult child to a juvenile delinquent to a regular (irregular) person … Spent a few years in high school …. reform school … fancy school …. Moved to the Lower East Side, then to the green greener Berkshires … Married crazy Ray D. Brock (picked up in old Cedar Street Tavern) … Worked as a librarian at the Stockbridge School … Bought a church … sang songs … Fooled around … Cooked good good food with a smile and other expressions … Bought a crummy diner …. Turned it into a crazy-yummy-cozy restaurant … Got tired … Got divorced … Got famed by Arlo Guthrie, an old friend who wrote the song “Alice’s Restaurant,” which inspired Arthur Penn to direct the movie Alice’s Restaurant–about Alice and Ray and Arlo and the Scene … now in the past. Thru it all Alice is a real live human bean–Still foolin’ around and still cookin’ …

Tracy Chapman
With the caveat that it's never really all that shocking when an artist that's achieved even so much as a modicum of success is given the best-of treatment, it's actually rather remarkable that Tracy Chapman released her self-titled debut album in 1988, has put out an additional seven studio albums since then, and yet has never before been the subject of a greatest-hits collection in the US…until now.
