Latest releases for December 2019 from Ace Records

Tim Burgess & Bob Stanley Present TIM PEAKS - Songs For A Late-Night Diner
Various Artists (Saint Etienne)
CD £11.50
LP £29.01
The Pacific North West and the English North West are damp, mossy, riddled with steep, unexpected valleys, dotted with abandoned mills, and frequently cloaked in mist. Most of the year you’d be wise to wear waterproofs. David Lynch set Twin Peaks in the former; it’s not a great leap to imagine it being re-cast and set in the latter. Paddy Considine would probably be involved; Yorkshire Tea, too. As for the soundtrack? Well, that’s what this album is about.

The London American Label Year By Year 1967   
Various Artists (London American)
CD £11.50

1967 as documented by the releases of the UK’s most famous source for US rock’n’roll, pop and R&B.

She Came From Liverpool! Merseyside Girl-Pop 1962-1968
Various Artists (Beat Girls)
CD £12.92

Male beat groups ruled the mid-60s Merseyside roost but the area was also home to its fair share of female talent.

Vinyl 45s


 I'm A Happy Man B/W Whatever I Am, I'm Yours
Modern Soul

Modern Soul
Various Artists (Kent singles)
7" £10.68
