We've made a point of mentioning in the past that one of the best things about our ongoing Studio Albums collections is that their convenience. Seriously, how great is it to be able to own an extensive streak of an artist's discography in a single package? Of course, when it comes to an Alice Cooper set that includes every studio album that the man formerly known as Vincent Furnier released on Warner Brothers between 1969 and 1983, we're talking about a seriously big package…and as it seems somehow inappropriate to throw in a “that's what she said” in the middle of this piece, we're going to move on and provide you with a list of the albums that are contained within the set.

They say listening to Air makes you 100% sexier and we are inclined to agree. Amplify your wattage when you enter to win the vinyl reissues of Premiers Symptomes,The Virgin Suicides, 10,000 Hz Legend, Talkie Walkie, Pocket Symphony, and Moon Safari!

It seems a bit odd to say this, given how long they’ve been defunct, but it’s true: 2015 has been a big year for Joy Division. On June 27, the band’s classic single “Love Will Tear Us Apart” celebrated its 35th anniversary, a momentous occasion which inspired us to go 180-gram crazy and do vinyl reissues of four of the band’s albums. Last month, you may recall that 1979’s Unknown Pleasures and 1980’s Closer hit the LP bins of your friendly neighborhood record store, and if you pay them a visit now, you’ll be able to find the other two albums we promised you.

With all due respect to the work accomplished by the band in more recent years, most music fans generally perceive the glory days of The Doobie Brothers to be during the Warner Brothers era of their career. Why? Well, obviously, it’s because that’s when they appeared on an episode of What’s Happening!! and famously provided Rog – played by Ernest Thomas – with the excuse to call the Brothers’ hotel room and ask one of the greatest questions in both TV and rock ‘n’ roll history.

Air, Moon Safari: You may recall our grand Air extravaganza last month, when we reissued pretty much everything in Air’s back catalog on 180-gram vinyl, but there was one notable omission from that last, and – you guessed it – this was it. Now that we’ve remedied that situation, you can go back and enjoy such classic Air tracks as “Sexy Boy,” “Kelly Watch the Stars,” and “All I Need.”

David Bowie, “Fame” 40th Anniversary 7” Picture Disc: The best thing about picture-disc singles is that they allow music geeks to defy the logic that they don’t need to own it because they already have the song. Yes, but do you have David Bowie’s “Fame” with this delightful picture on it? No, you don’t. But now you can.
