One quick thing to take care of that we've been getting a lot of calls about – the new Tipper album, Broken Soul Jamboree. As you know, storms all over the country are causing havoc with deliveries and Tipper has fallen under that axe, so we haven't yet received all the copies we ordered. What we have received has been set aside for those who have pre-ordered, and when you receive an email stating that your order has been processed, it's ready for you to come pick up (once we're open at 10, anyway). As other copies arrive, we will fill the remainder of pre-orders and then put the rest out on the floor for sale, in that order. We should be able to handle all orders plus in-store sales once we receive all of our stock, but as with so many things in the last year, we're at the mercy of forces beyond our control here. Please feel free to call the store at 303-722-1943 if you have any questions about this piece (or any item, of course)!
In other news, Twist & Shout will again be participating in the Bringing Music To Life instrument drive, in which donated concert band instruments are refurbished and given to underfunded school music programs. If you've got that old violin or trombone or cello you haven't touched in years, maybe it's time to change a child's life through music and donate it. The instrument drive runs from Monday March 8th – Sunday March 21st. Bring your instrument here and we'll turn it over to Bringing Music To Life. Read all about the program HERE. And feel free to call the store to learn about the best way to bring down your instrument to donate.
You can keep up to date on what our Covid-19 policies and restrictions are by clicking HERE. We will update this regularly as the shape of the pandemic – and the national, state, and local responses to it – changes, and this page will always have the most up to date info. Meanwhile, outside the store folks who have to wait in line to get in when we're at capacity on cold days will be able to enjoy the new heaters we've installed outside to take the edge off of the cold.
This week is back up to a big release week again, and you can see all the biggies by clicking the link below, but here are a handful of reissues and smaller ones that caught my eye: Cleveland indie rockers Cloud Nothings have their new album The Shadow I Remember out on CD, LP, and cassette; Deftones 20th anniversary box set of White Pony with 2LPs, 2CDs, a book, and more; PJ Harvey's superb album Stories From the City Stories From the Sea is the latest in her series of Demos release on both CD and LP (and the regular album is getting an LP reissue as well); Jefferson Airplane has a handful of remastered LP reissues for Volunteers, Surrealistic Pillow, and The Worst of Jefferson Airplane; Chaka Khan's hits collection Epiphany: The Best of Chaka Khan is seeing its first official vinyl release on burgundy colored vinyl; and Lil' Kim's classic album The Notorious K.I.M. is seeing its first LP release in over 20 years; Brooklyn instrumental funk band Menahan Street Band's new album The Exciting Sounds Of Menahan Street Band is out on both CD and LP; The National is releasing CD and LP remasters of their first two albums (and the early Cherry Tree EP); avant-leaning jazz trio Thumbscrew has a new album out, Never Is Enough, on both CD and LP (their first LP release!); the Senegalese/Swedish collaborative group Wau Wau Collectif releases their debut album Yaral Sa Doom on CD and LP; and last only alphabetically, musician/producer Adrian Younge's powerful new album The American Negro is out on CD (LP issue is slated for early May). Over in DVD and Blu-ray, this week we've got a good batch: The Criterion Collection is releasing two films by Iranian-American director Ramin Bahrani, whose films are steeped in a class-conscious realism – Chop Shop and Man Push Cart, both available on DVD and Blu-ray; Criterion has also released Blu-ray and DVD issues of Joyce Chopra's 1985 drama Smooth Talk, featuring great performances by Laura Dern (in her breakout role) and Treat Williams; The Go-Go's documentary – cleverly entitled The Go-Go's is out in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack; there's also a cheaply-priced John Hughes five-film Blu-ray collection that includes Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and She's Having a Baby; Diana Ross's legendary turn as the trouble Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues is now finally available on Blu-ray; and there's a DVD reissue of the long out of print French New Wave anthology film Six In Paris, featuring segments directed by Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, Eric Rohmer, and others. As always, there are many more releases above and beyond these, but these are the ones that caught my eye the most.
Hope you're all doing well and staying safe and healthy!
