Vinyl and CD Sets

Bonnie Raitt – Just Like That LP ($28.98): Bonnie Raitt’s first full-length project in more than six years is full of both new compositions and covers. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee recorded this dazzling record throughout 2021, which features her distinctive, textural voice atop a sonic landscape that meets at the intersection of country and blues rock. This gatefold jacket LP comes in an indie-exclusive teal color variant that Mom will love – complete with an exclusive notecard from Raitt herself. You can get it from Bonnie’s official webstore here.

Ann Wilson – Fierce Bliss LP ($25.99): The legendary co-founder of Heart (and accomplished artist in her own right) is back with a new LP. Wilson’s newest record is lavish, polished rock n’ roll that takes no prisoners. Fierce Bliss was created with a blockbuster lineup of collaborators, including a feature from Vince Gill. You can get the standard black LP from Amazon.

Neil Young – Official Release Series #4 Vinyl Box Set ($99.98): Diehard Neil Young fans will love the newest installment of the iconic rocker’s Official Releases remastering series. Volume 4’s offerings are eclectic, spanning from folk to Young’s stint as a big band leader. This set includes 1980’s Hawks & Doves, 1981’s Reactor with Crazy Horse, 1988’s This One’s For You, and 1989’s Eldorado EP, which was previously a release exclusive to Australia and Japan. The box set also includes digital FLAC redemption codes for all of the LPs. You can pre-order the box set (out April 29th) via Neil’s official webstore.

Sheryl Crow – Sheryl: Music From The Feature Documentary 2CD Set ($19.98): Acting as the companion piece to the legendary singer-songwriter’s forthcoming documentary, Sheryl, this 2-CD set features thirty-five songs spanning her decades-long career.

Various Artists – Portraits Of Her LP ($21.99): Record Store Day and Vans have collaborated on an exclusive compilation album featuring Taylor Swift, Girl in Red, Julian Baker, Bully, and more. If the words “exclusive” and “Taylor Swift” weren’t enough to pique your interest, a sizable donation has been made to support Moving The Needle, an organization aimed at supporting women in the music industry. It’s a celebration of talented women in deservedly successful positions and a call for an increased female presence — perfect for mom’s special day.
