1.  Winter at the Roxy (CD) ~ Lou Reed
Broadcast live in early 1976 from L.A.'s legendary Roxy Theatre by that city's KMET FM Radio, this dynamic set captures the former Velvet Underground front-man, Lou Reed, working through an eight song selection of some of his finest work he had released up to that juncture. Featuring a sublime I'm Waiting For The Man dating back to the first VU album, Lisa Says, a song written at a similar time and indeed demoed by the Velvets but not released until it's inclusion on Lou's first, eponymous solo LP in 1972, and two cuts apiece from October '75's 'Coney Island Baby' (Kicks & the title track) and his then yet to be released 'Rock and Roll Heart' (I Believe In Love & You Wear It So Well) - a record not issued until October '76. He was never going to get out alive however without performing ...Wild Side, thus a 10 minute rendition of this classic tune provides the penultimate number of this energetic performance. Lou would survive a further 37 years after this FM broadcast was transmitted to the fine residents of the greater Los Angeles area, and performed in front of those lucky enough to have attended in person, but his sad passing in 2013 makes the existence of live documents such as this CD more necessary than ever to help us all appreciate how right David Bowie was in his recent tribute to Lou when he pronounced; ""He was The Master"".

2.  The Document (CD) ~ U2
U2 are widely recognised as one of the best, if not the best band in the world today. They have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide and have won 22 Grammy Award, more than any other band in history. Following 12 sensational studio albums which have increased their global fanbase to epic proportions, the band are now set to release an eagerly awaited new album in 2014. DISC ONE: THE INTERVIEW CD Over 70 minutes of interviews with Dublin's finest, and with contributions from all the band members. Spanning all periods of their astonishing career this set really gets to the heart of what makes these boys tick! DISC TWO: THE DOCUMENTARY DVD A celebration of the lives and career of U2, this is a 60 minute film using rare footage and interviews with the band, interviews with many close collaborators who have known U2 through the years, numerous location shots, unpublished photographs and a host of other features. Also includes many 'extras' including digital interactive discography and 'did you know' section.

3.  Realeyes (CD) ~ Darkrise
For their fourth album, Swiss metal band DARKRISE worked with extreme music maverick Kevin Talley (ex-DYING FETUS, ex-MISERY INDEX, SIX FEET UNDER). Mixed and mastered at the Hertz Studio (BEHEMOTH, VADER), ""Realeyes"" is a jewel of rough, technical and aggressive Death Metal.

4.  Heavy Jelly (CD) ~ Heavy Jelly
In 1970 JACKIE LOMAX joined HEAVY JELLY following on from his spell in the late 60's as the first ever signing as a solo artist with Apple Records and being championed by The BEATLES. Heavy Jelly consisted of former AYNSLEY DUNBAR members and the drummer from The ANIMALS. The band recorded in 1970 their debut album. Heavy Jelly initially were a fictitious group that somehow became a real band. Because of contractual problems with Apple the album has never before been officially released until now. This long lost 1970 album has attained legendary status and has appeared in bootleg form over the years Following Jackie's untimely death in autumn 2013 his family has resolved all contractual issues with Apple amicably and they have given their approval for the album to be released on CD at last. Fellow Apple Records label mates Pete Ham and Tom Evans from BADFINGER appear on the album as well as The Rolling Stones wind section Bobby Keys and Jim Price.

The group has appeared on records that have sold over 40 million copies.

Tracks like Survival Of The Fittest Shook Ones Part II and Quiet Storm RMX have remained significant and still move crowds from NY to Tokyo. Mobb Deep s ability to perfectly describe their gritty surroundings and lifestyle always made them a first choice for music writers and critics across the board.
