Laurel Aitken



  • Says Fire


  • Ska With Laurel



It is not without reason that during his lifetime Laurel Aitken acquired the mantles of ‘The Godfather of Ska’ and ‘The High Priest of Reggae’, for he was a true pioneer of the modern Jamaican music industry whose works helped shape the sound of Reggae, up until his death in 2005.

Lee Fields and the Expressions - My World


Lee Fields is a bona-fide, 100%, unadulterated, pure, gut-bucket soul singer. While the crate-digging funk and soul community bestowed "legendary" status upon him due to his undeniably solid series of rare 7" singles (and one LP) recorded and released on his own independent labels in the ‘70s, he's never been one to sit in a dusty corner.


Franz Ferdinand - Blood


Upon completion of *Tonight: Franz Ferdinand*, the album's co-producer, Dan Carey, began to conduct a dub experiment with the tracks. Carey's own experience had included an apprenticeship of sorts with legendary south London dub specialist The Mad Professor. And thusly, *Blood* was born. Comprised of eight radical revisions from Franz Ferdinand's third album, and a bonus ninth track, "Be Afraid."


Girl in a Coma - Trio B.C.


A unique amalgamation of eclectic influences: oldies, rockabilly, ‘90s alternative, and contemporary bands both indie and mainstream. Features Joan Jett on guest vocals.


Dave Matthews Band - Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King CD/CD+DVD


Dave Matthews' highly anticipated first studio album in four years. Produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance), *Big Whiskey* has been hailed by Rolling Stone as the group's “heaviest album yet, both musically and emotionally.” The deluxe version adds a DVD documenting the making of the new album. Free 7" vinyl with purchase at Vinyl Fever, while supplies last!



The Meatmen - Cover the Earth


After a twelve year lapse, The Meatmen bounce back big with a 24-track ode to the tuneage of yore. Cover the Earth features all of Tesco's favorite musical blasts of the last 40 years, which include Fear, GG Allin, Johnny ThundersJimmy Dean, 10CC and The Temptations. All delivered in reverential but irreverent form.


Paolo Nutini - Sunny Side Up


Iggy Pop - Préliminaires


Iggy puts a French twist on his new album. Préliminaires (which translates to "foreplay") highlights another facet of the Iggy Pop persona, focusing more on jazz arrangements and the distinctive, rich baritone heard on classics like "Nightclubbing" and his duet with French legend Françoise Hardy on the song "I'll Be Seeing You."


Rancid - Let the Dominos Fall CD/2xCD+DVD


Deluxe three-disc (double CD+DVD) edition includes the regular CD, an additional acoustic disc, a bonus DVD, three foldout posters and four guitar picks.

Ween - All Request Live

Collected here for the first time is the story and songs that came out of this thriving, if not totally unknown scene.  Another fine Numero comp.
