In these modern times of ours, you may notice that we have a tendency to release items digitally and on CD first, and then a little bit after that we’ll release things on vinyl. Well, prepare to have your world turned topsy-turvy, because we’ve just reissued John Coltrane’s The Atlantic Years in Mono on vinyl...but you’ll have to wait ‘til July 8 to get the CD!
Rhino has made it a point to reissue classic albums on 180-gram vinyl on a regular basis. These are the latest to get that treatment. You're welcome.
The World Won’t Listen: During the course of their career, The Smiths released a trifecta of compilation albums which every fan worth their salt felt obliged to own, even though two of them were originally only available in the UK and one was only available in the US. The first of the UK-only releases was the immortal Hatful of Hollow, and the other was this one, which came out on February 23, 1987, and was intended as a collection of the band’s singles and B-sides released between 1985 and 1987. In the end, it actually ended up featuring a couple of other tracks, too: “You Just Haven’t Earned It Yet, Baby,” which was intended as a single but ended up being passed over in favor of “Shoplifters of the World Unite,” and “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out,” which was talked up as a single from The Queen Is Dead but never materialized as such.

When a duo has sold an estimated 75 million records worldwide over the course of their career, you might be surprised that they even feel the need to get out of bed in the morning, let alone continue to release new material. As such, let’s all raise our glasses to Roxette: after going their separate ways from 2001 to 2011, Per Gessle and Marie Frederickson reunited to release a new album in 2011 (Charm School), which was followed by another new album in 2012 (Travelling), and as of today they’ve added still another new album to the mix.
