Jade Warrior - Floating World
(Island ILPS-9290 UK-74 VG+ 300:-)

Once a symbol of the Vertigo label's adventurism, Jade Warrior's lack of sales led to their dismissal in 1972, which inevitably resulted in the band's disintegration.

However, the Warrior's multi-instrumentalists, Jon Field and Tony Duhig, soldiered on and secured a deal with Island. "Floating World" was the new-look Jade's debut, a concept album themed around the Japanese philosophy of Ukiyo, with the songs revolving around two interrelated series of compositions.
Jarre, Jean-Michel - Planet Jarre
(Sony 19075870642 EU-18 EX 800:-)

With his upcoming best-of, "Planet Jarre", the Godfather of electronic music Jean-Michel Jarre celebrates his 50 years at the forefront of electronic music with an extensive 4LP set that will once more carburize his legacy in pop music history.

"Planet Jarre" comprises 41 works from his extensive music catalogue and has been personally curated to focus on four distinct styles covered in his career:

-His atmospheric and ambient Soundscapes, influenced by his classical background and love of film soundtracks
-Themes, covering his best known international hits and more melodic pieces
-Sequences focuses on his work with computers and his influence on what has become techno and EDM
-Explorations and Early Works which covers his early proto-sampling work, use of modular synths and sound processors.

The collection features two previously unreleased tracks called "Coachella Opening" and "Herbalizer".
Joy Division - Shadowplay
(Amazing Daffy Disc TADD-002 Cze-85 VG+ 1250:-)

Mancunians Joy Division unleashed a form of punk that had all of the genre's calling cards and yet was too moody and emotional to fall under the strict leather and bondage pants guidelines quickly being established. They were creating repetitive, tuneful dirges that could explode into frustration or travel into bleak, romantic territory marked by paranoid atmospherics.

Side 1 was recorded at BBC Maida Vale Studios, London, on January 31, 1979. Side 2 was recorded somewhere at BBC Studios, London, on November 26, 1979.
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
(Factory FACT- 10 UK-79 VG+ 1000:-)

A stunning record – and one that still chills us to the bone after all these years! The set's the first from Joy Division – and really set a whole new standard for the post-punk underground – thanks partly to the group's brooding sense of darkness, but also to the brilliant production from Martin Hannett – who uses slight bits of electronics to augment the group's stark guitars and Ian Curtis' moody vocals. The whole thing's a classic!
