Feels Like Home
Manufacturer: Blue Note Brand: MUSIC Model: 2130161
2004 release, the sophomore album from Jazz/Pop singer/songwriter Norah Jones. Feels Like Home sold a million copies in the first week of its U.S. release, the first album to do so since Eminem's The Eminem Show (2002) and it was the second best-selling album of 2004, with about four million copies sold in U.S. alone. Norah Jones blew everybody away with her jazzy, country-tinged, Grammy-winning debut CD, Come Away with Me. On this recording, Jones doesn't mess with her trademark formula. Under Arif Mardin's cozy coproduction, Jones is supported by her writing partners, her Handsome Band, and some special guests (country legend Dolly Parton, Levon Helm and Garth Hudson of the Band, and jazz drummer Brian Blade, to name a few). Jones's Texas-twanged vocals and her sparse acoustic and electric Wurlitzer piano lines enliven the CD's 13 tracks, from the light and lively single "Sunrise" to Tom Waits's "The Long Way Home" and the bouncy duet with Parton, "Creepin' In." Jones's soul-baring piano/vocal rendition of...

18 tracks The great iconoclast of techno returns with a smooth, sacred, and exhilarating record. Play's concoction of breakbeat rhythms, ambient mixology, and inspired blues and gospel samples cry out across musical genres and histories, imparting a time-tested wisdom to beat-driven ears. Moby's devout faith--in both God and his own musical whims--give this approach a sort of legitimacy that another, less sincere artist would never have. That sincerity reverberates through the beats and instrumental eclecticism like a pulse. The soulful refrains and proclamations in "Find My Baby" and "Natural Blues" somehow nestle between straight-up dance-floor rave-ups ("Bodyrock") and melt-in-your-mouth ambience ("Inside") with an effortless grace. Moby reaches across his turntables and finds something pure--almost organic. In fact, the album feels more natural than techno is ever supposed to feel, more spiritual than what DJs are supposed to be able to muster, and more alive than it has any right to be. --Matthew Cooke

Weezer (Blue Album)
Manufacturer: Geffen Brand: Umgd/Dgc Records Model: 2120600
1994 debut There's a classic episode of The Little Rascals where one of the gang can't join everybody else on the ballfield because he has to stay home with his younger brother, who has the croup. "I can't come out and play," he whines. "I've got to stay home and grease Wheezer!" Nobody at Geffen Records knows whether this was the inspiration in naming Weezer, but it makes sense. Like many of their peers, the members of the Los Angeles quartet seem to have spent their formative years in front of the TV; when they were a little older, they were just as entranced by college rock. Finally, ala the Rascals, one of the gang said, "Hey, kids, let's put on a show!," and the result is Weezer's uplifting, unpretentious, and extremely endearing debut. The self-titled Weezer is lean and mean at 10 short, punchy tunes, but nearly every one is powered by a larger-than-life chorus or a simple but effective lyric. "Undone-The Sweater Song" uses an unraveling sweater as a metaphor for a relationship on the rocks; "Buddy Hol...
30 #1 Hits
Manufacturer: RCA Brand: Elvis Presley Model: 2019087
Excellent collection from the King Of Rock 'n' Roll that contains the biggest hits of his career including 'Burning Love', 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Suspicious Minds', 'All Shook Up', 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?', 'Hound Dog', In The Ghetto', 'Jailhouse Rock' and many others. Also features the hit remix of 'A Little Less Conversation'. In 1987, RCA released a one-disc Elvis compilation called The Number One Hits that featured 18 tracks. So how did the label come up with 12 additional number ones (13 if you count the sensational "A Little Less Conversation" remix that brings the King into the 21st century as a bona fide dance/electronica star)? Well, the '87 compilation featured only Billboard number ones. "In the Ghetto" and "Burning Love" never reached the top there, nor did "Way Down," despite every copy of that 45 selling out on both sides of the Atlantic following Presley's 1977 death. Instead, the new compilers have used the major pop charts in both the U.S. (including Cashbox) and U.K. to determine inclusions...

Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release, the long-awaited third studio album by British folk rock band Mumford & Sons. Wilder Mind marks the end of Mumford and Sons' hiatus, which they took in 2013 after extensively touring behind Babel. The album moves away from the band's first two albums, adding more electric guitar to the mix and emphasizing the 'rock' side of the 'folk-rock' genre they've been lumped into. "We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn't for us," Marcus Mumford told Rolling Stone. This musical shift explains the reasoning behind Winston Marshall's switch from banjo to the electric guitar. Includes the single "Believe. "

In Between Dreams
Manufacturer: Brushfire Records Brand: Umgd/Brushfire Records Model: 2073333
In Between Dreams is the multi-platinum selling smash from Jack Johnson. The album features classics like "Banana Pancakes", "Better Together" and "Good People". For a man who gets his biggest kicks surfing the waves and strumming his guitar on a lonely beach in native Hawaii, singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has carved out quite a remarkable career on the mainland. His 2003 album, On and On, debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and subsequently went platinum on the back of hit single "The Horizon Has Been Defeated." The follow-up, meanwhile, seems destined to shine even brighter. The drifting chords and soft voice are still in place, only now Johnson's instinct for melody has sharpened alongside his ability to self-edit. These small concessions make third album, In Between Dreams, his most conspicuous, particularly on tracks like the three-minute relationship drama, "Sitting, Waiting, Wishing," and "Breakdown," a song he originally recorded for Handsome Boy Modeling School's White People album remade here to ...
