It's been out for awhile on CD and in digital format, but for you purists out there, the time is nigh for you to be able to purchase Jeff Beck's latest live album - cleverly entitled Live + - on vinyl.

Recorded at various venues during the course of 2014, Jeff Beck's Live + features 14 concert performances including tracks from throughout his career, including “Morning Dew” (Truth), “Superstition” (Beck, Bogert, Appice), and “Big Block” (Jeff Beck's Guitar Shop), along with covers ranging from “A Day in the Life” and “Little Wing” to “Danny Boy” and “A Change is Gonna Come.”

Only a few weeks back, we added Soul Coughing's three Warner Brothers albums to our digital catalog as part of a package called The Studio Album Collection 1994-1998. This was particularly great if you wanted to secure the band's WB trifecta in one fell swoop, but what of those youngsters - or oldsters - who prefer the crisp, clean sound of 180-gram vinyl? Well, if that's the crowd you run with, then this is a good week for you, because we've just released all three of those albums - 1994's Ruby Vroom, 1996's Irresistible Bliss, and 1998's El Oso - in that exact format.

He's a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors, and according to The Guinness Book of World Records, he's second only to Sir Paul McCartney as the most successful songwriter in history, but the most important thing about Barry Gibb today is that it's his birthday.

Yes, Barry Alan Crompton Gibb, eldest of the Gibb brothers and - more than a little bit sadly - the only surviving member of that particular brotherhood, turns 69 years old today.

New this week in the Rhino Room at iTunes:

Various Artists, Andre: Songs from the Original Soundtrack – Unless you were a kid or had kids during the 1990s, the seal-centric family film Andre may have flown under your radar, but in addition to being a sweet little story about the bond that develops between a little girl and a seal, it also has a pretty great soundtrack. The majority of it is filled with classic R&B from the late 1950s and early 1960s, including the Coasters, the Drifters (and Ben E. King), the Flamingos, and the Toys, but it opens with a track by Tyler Collins (“Thanks to You”) and closes with contributions from Morgan Heritage (“This Magic Moment”) and Craig ‘n Co (“You’re My Best Friend”).
