    Art Pepper — Keep Swingin’

    Let’s just start with a quote from our friend Laurie Pepper, “Art hated the idea that people put jazz in a pigeonhole. He wanted to make people forget the categories and ‘make them open up and listen.’”

    Old 97’s Made A Monster

    Fifteen years have flown by since the Old 97’s major label debut, Too Far To Care, first hit the shelves, and because this record is an Omnivore Recordings favorite, we decided to raise a ruckus for the anniversary in true Omnivore fashion. We expanded the original album to include four session outtakes to release as the first disc of the new 2-CD package. Then, when band gave us access to their pre-Too Far To Care demos, we put those all on Disc 2 of the new edition. Happy anniversary!

    Happy Independence Week

    We hope everyone had a great 4th! Our fireworks went off the day before with the release of Jellyfish, Live At Bogart’s, on CD and laser-etched limited-edition double LP on translucent-blue vinyl (wow!). The blue vinyl first pressing is likely to go fast, so track one down soon if you want one for your collection. Up next, on Tuesday, July 17, is the brilliant Sam Phillips album, Martinis & Bikinis on CD and limited-edition double LP on white vinyl! Sweet! Sam gave us four bonus tracks for this reissue, one of which, a new version of the great, “Strawberry Road,” she recorded specifically for this release! Uh, she’s awesome! Next release announcements coming this week, lots of great stuff coming up, stay tuned!

    Buck Owens Webstore Exclusive

    The Buck Owens Coloring Book E.P. (with red, white or blue Flexi-disc!) blew off the shelves on Record Store Day, and though we have no crystal ball to figure out what’s going to sell and how many, we anticipated that this one might just become scarce very quick. So as we were hand-assembling them, we held 150 back for a webstore exclusive.
