Alice Coltrane/ ‘The Ecstatic Music Of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’/ Luaka Bop


Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’s devotion to spirituality was the central purpose of her life’s final four decades, an often overlooked awakening that took shape during her four-year marriage to John Coltrane and after his 1967 death. Now for the first time, the spiritual music she privately recorded during this period becomes available in this compilation, the initial installment in a planned series of spiritual music from around the globe.

Dion/ ‘Kickin’ Child: The Lost Album 1965’/ Norton Records


The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s mythic unreleased album places him squarely in the center of rock’s key mid-‘60s developments and provides the missing link connecting his early hits to his 1968 protest smash “Abraham, Martin and John.” The revelatory sessions, never released in their complete form until now, redefine a career already impressive enough to have earned a place in the pantheon of rock 'n' roll's early giants.

Don Bryant/ ‘Don’t Give Up On Love’/ Fat Possum


The Memphis soul original and Hi Records hit man recorded his first release in decades in honor of his wife of 43 years, the legendary Ann Peebles, cutting it with generations of Memphis studio greats. These 10 songs, including seven penned by Bryant, show a soul survivor in action, exhibiting a sharp vocal acumen that can be honed only by years spent on the road and in the studio.

Maggie Rose/ ‘Dreams > Dollars’/ Independent


Praised as "what's next in Nashville" by NPR, Rose’s new EP showcases her evolution into “one of country’s rising storytellers” (Washington Post). The five songs penned and co-produced by Rose play as an exuberant and anthemic collection filled with stories of lust-filled evenings, the inescapable aftermath of a relationship and striving for self-discovery.
