2.  Blue Note Select Prepack (Features 4 Blue Note Select 75th Anniversary Releases) (CD) ~ Various
Blue Note Records, the world's most respected and longest-running Jazz label, is pleased to share that the first four titles from the label's new Blue Note Select line will now be available as one special set, packaged in a slip case. Released in 2014, the celebrated 75th year of Blue Note Records, the titles included in this set are Miles Davis' Take Off: The Complete Blue Note Albums (2CD), Clifford Brown's Brownie Speaks: The Complete Blue Note Recordings (3CD), John Coltrane & Friends' Sideman: Trane's Blue Note Sessions (3CD) and Thelonious Monk's 'Round Midnight: The Complete Blue Note Recordings (2CD). Each individual Blue Note Select title is complete with original recordings - sequenced as they were first released on 10-inch or 78 RPM singles (a departure from previous reissues, which have used recording chronology or later 12-inch versions of the albums for their sequences) and each is presented in special book-style packaging with a new essay, Francis Wolff session photos, original album art and other details.

3.  Die Electric Eels (Vinyl) ~ Electric Eels
VInyl LP pressing. Cleveland's electric eels (all lower case in homage to poet e.e. cummings) was America's quintessential proto-punk band. After only five legendary live performances - complete with Dave E. McManus in black leather jacket covered in rat-traps and playing a gas-powered lawnmower on stage - the eels broke up in 1976 and posthumously released their classic single "Agitated" on Rough Trade in 1978, blazing a trail for high-art, low-concept rock. This archival LP collects the eels' best material from 1975. From the loud and snotty "Agitated" and its B-side "Cyclotron" (which Johan Kugelberg listed as #1 in his top 100 punk singles) to the anarchic anthem "Jaguar Ride" and the loose, bluesy sludge of "Anxiety," the album exorcises the demonic power of the Stooges and Velvets and captures the mystique of these outsider artists inventing a new language. As the eels demand "Attendance Required" on their flyer for the infamous Special Extermination Music Night, listening is absolutely mandatory for this seminal band. Recommended for fans of Dead Boys, Simply Saucer and Pagans.

4.  Gene Watson: Greatest Hits (CD) ~ Gene Watson
Gene Watson live at the Church Street Station Theatre in Orlando, Florida. Here Watson puts on one of his trademark breath-taking performances. ""The world stops spinning when he sings,"" marvels Robert K. Oermann, the dean of country critics. ""In his voice is all the ache of existence."" In 1974 Watson's steamy single Love In The Hot Afternoon made the Top 10 and ignited a firestorm of hits.

Next Big Thing

Monuments to an Elegy is the upcoming tenth studio album by the alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, due for release on December 9, 2014. Band leader Billy Corgan has noted that—similar to the band's previous release, Oceania—the album will be part of the ongoing project, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope. That trend continues on the latest Pumpkins export, Monuments to an Elegy. While not as sweeping as its predecessor, the album is just as emphatic and far more emotional. Corgan is in a groove right now, and although he’s not hitting the high creative watermarks he set for himself with 1998’s Adore or even 2000’s underrated (and technically unreleased) Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music, it’s a fresh chapter for the Midwestern songwriter. He’s pretty much on his own here — guitarist Jeff Schroeder and Lee were the only other musicians in the studio this time around — and yet the album still sounds less incestuous than 2007’s Zeitgeist. He’s in a clearing, creatively speaking, and the nine tracks speak to that kind of mental release.
