The first confirmed album release is a remastered 180g vinyl edition ofOne Size Fits All, the ’74 album from Zappa’s band The Mothers of Invention, which drops on August 14th.

Vinyl Day brings back memories of music listening rituals: “As we walked through the door, I was greeted by a man who excitedly asked me “Do you like vinyl records?!” This was like a fastball down the middle, but I kept a straight face and played it calmly, answering “Yes, indeed I do…”

Pretty things set for Tower Records in-store: “Their new release The Sweet Pretty Things (Are In Bed Now, Of Course…) might mark 52 years on the go, but R&B heroes The Pretty Things are slowing down for nobody. In fact, the pioneering band are going positively old-school and undertaking a tour of indie record stores in a few months time – including a visit to Tower Records on September 16.”
