Re-re­leases and com­pi­la­tions

Australian T3 - - MUSIC TO YOUR EARS -

Led Zep­pelin

I, II and III The gui­tarist from this rel­a­tively un­known cult band has re­mas­tered their first three al­bums and in­cluded a gen­er­ous serv­ing of rough mixes, live tracks and rar­i­ties. If Led Zep­pelin has eluded you un­til now you should check these out. It’s a shame the band never re­ally made it. lis­ten to: Whole Lotta Love

Oa­sis

Def­i­nitely Maybe Af­ter the wal­low­ing mis­ery of grunge and the mourn­ing that fol­lowed Kurt Cobain’s itchy trig­ger fin­ger, Def­i­nitely Maybe’s ag­gres­sive pos­i­tiv­ity sounded like the most ex­cit­ing thing ever recorded. It was an al­bum the band never bet­tered. lis­ten to: Rock ‘N’ Roll Star

The An­gels

40 Years of Rock With the sad pass­ing of Doc Nee­son in June now is the per­fect time to re­visit the work of one of Aus­tralia’s most iconic rock bands. All to­gether now, “Am I ever go­ing to see your face again? No way, get…” lis­ten to: Take a Long Line

So undgar­den

Superunknown Un­til Superunknown’s re­lease Soundgar­den had been over­shad­owed by the strato­spheric suc­cess en­joyed by Nir­vana and Pearl Jam. This for­mi­da­ble beast of an al­bum changed all that and turned Chris Cor­nell into a rock icon, at least for a while. lis­ten to: Spoon­man

Paul Well er

More Mod­ern Clas­sics This sec­ond com­pi­la­tion of the Mod­fa­ther’s solo ca­reer high­lights just how much qual­ity ma­te­rial he’s pro­duced in re­cent years. Pack­ag­ing 21 tracks from the last 15 years, this al­bum proves he’s been as po­tent in his fifties as he was in his twen­ties. lis­ten to: Wake Up the Na­tion

Grace Jones

Night­club­bing Per­haps the most in­tim­i­dat­ing Bond girl of all time, Grace Jones first dom­i­nated the world of modelling and then turned her eye to the world of disco. Night­club­bing stands as proof that Jones ab­so­lutely de­serves her icon sta­tus. lis­ten to: Pull Up to the Bumper
