MORRISSEY
‘Swords’ [Release Date 26/10/2009]

CD  I    2CD  I  2LP

It draws b-sides from many of the
singles taken from 'You are the Quarry', 'Ringleader of the Tormentors',
'Greatest Hits' and 'Years Of Refusal'.

Although these tracks were
originally released as b-sides, heard together and alongside each other on this
CD they sound superb as a collection in their own right, and is a wonderful
journey through some of Morrissey's lesser heard tracks recorded over the last 5
years.

There is a limited edition format
for initial orders that comes superbly packaged with an extra disc recorded live
in Warsaw. It
contains 8 tracks never before released, recorded during his current 2009 world
tour and captures Morrissey on awesome form.

ALISON
MOYET ‘The Best Of’ [Release Date 19/10/2009]

CD  I   2CD

Acclaimed singer Alison Moyet will
mark her incredible three-decade spanning career on 19 October 2009 with the
release of 'The Best Of Alison Moyet' through Sony Music. A deluxe 2CD version
of the album entitled 'The Best Of: 25 Years Revisited' will contain 11 brand
new interpretations of Alison's favourite songs from her back catalogue recorded
with her current live band.

'The Best Of Alison Moyet' is a true
reflection of the extraordinary music produced by Alison Moyet over the last 25
years and a testament to the diversity of her talents. The songs included on the
album form a definitive representation of her stunning and vivacious vocal style
and range, from subtle blues and bombastic soul to big pop chart hits.

The Top 10 singles 'All Cried Out',
'Love Resurrection', 'Invisible' and 'Is This Love' are all included on this 20
track anthology, as are the heartbreakingly honest ballad 'This House' and the
modern soul of 'Hoodoo'. Timeless cover versions of 'That Ole Devil Called Love'
and 'Love Letters', which both cracked the Top 5 upon release in 1985 and 1987
respectively, and 'Windmills Of Your Mind' and 'Almost Blue' from 2004's 'Voice'
album, perfectly demonstrate the smoky range of Alison's blues vocals, are all
included on this comprehensive collection of solo
work.

BOB DYLAN "Christmas In The Heart" [Release date 12/10/2009]

CD   I  Deluxe CD


Bob Dylan will release a brand new
album of holiday songs, Christmas In The Heart, on Monday, October 12th. 'Christmas In The Heart' will be the
47th album from Bob Dylan, and follows his worldwide chart-topping 'Together
Through Life', released earlier this year. Songs performed by Dylan on this new
album include, 'Here Comes Santa Claus,' 'Winter Wonderland,' 'Little Drummer
Boy' and 'Must Be Santa.'

Bob Dylan's four previous studio
albums have been universally hailed as among the best of his storied career,
achieving new levels of commercial success and critical acclaim for the artist.
The Platinum-selling 'Time Out Of Mind' from 1997 earned multiple Grammy Awards,
including Album Of The Year, while 'Love and Theft' continued Dylan's Platinum
streak and earned several Grammy nominations and a statue for Best Contemporary
Folk album.  Modern Times, released in 2006, became one of the artist’s
biggest albums worldwide, selling more than 2.5 million copies and earning Dylan
two more Grammys.

Those four releases fell within a
12-year creative span that also included an Oscar and Golden Globe-winning tune,
'Things Have Changed,' from the film 'Wonder Boys', in 2001; a worldwide best
selling memoir, 'Chronicles Vol. 1,' which spent 19 weeks on the New York Times
Best Seller List, in 2004; a Martin Scorsese-directed documentary, 'No Direction
Home', in 2005; and several volumes of the best-selling 'Bootleg Series', which
culminated in last year's highly-acclaimed 'Tell Tale
Signs'.

The creatives behind the enormous success of Ministry of Sound's
'Anthems' series, and Universal's '12" 80's', come together on Rhino to

'Boogie Wonderland' and tipping us into the next great dance movement

of Pop, Rap and Techno/House featuring classic mixes of Miami Sound
Machine 'Dr Beat', Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five 'White Lines',
S' Express 'The Theme… ', Inner City 'Big Fun', Womack and Womack
'Teardrops', Marshall Jefferson 'Move Your Body', Farley Jackmaster Funk
'Love Can't Turn Around' and of course the biggest selling 12" single of

momentum that will leave you breathless for the next installation, CD3
features club classics from Adamski 'Killer', Beats International 'Dub
Be Good To Me', Jamiroquai 'Space Cowboy', Deee-lite 'Groove Is In The
Heart', C&C Music Factory 'Everybody Dance Now', Snap! 'Rhythm Is A
Dancer', Crystal Waters 'Gypsy Woman', Utah Saints 'Something Good',

'Sonic Boom'. Featuring 11 brand new Kiss anthems, 'Sonic Boom' is an

recording career, marks a new chapter for the band: it is the first Kiss

ASH 'True Love 1980' [Release Date 12/10/2009]

Ltd 7": Crisscrossing the nation from A to Z, evergreen rock stars Ash promote their mould breaking A-Z Singles Collection with a 26-date UK tour. Visiting some of the country's live music back waters… Working alphabetically through the towns and cities of the British Isles from Aldershot to Zennor, Ash will be dropping in on the UK's lesser-visited concert venues. Exotic locations like Ventnor (that's on the Isle of Wight), The Havana Club (in Jersey), Upper Norwood (South London of course…) and the Devonshire seaside town of 'eXmouth', will be among those experiencing a rare visit from a major touring act; and who better to "bring the rock" than the acclaimed live act and hit factory that is Ash? The tour provides the launch pad for the bands unique A-Z Series, kicking off with the electro-ballad 'True Love 1980' on October 12th. The A-Z series will see a collection of 26 limited edition 7" singles, released fortnightly over the coming year. Rising to the challenge of the creative Everest that is a 26 single campaign, with 'True Love 1980', Tim Wheeler has delivered a typically monumental piece of pop; tapping into Ash's trademark hooks and three piece dynamism, while reveling in the possibilities of their groundbreaking studio project. 'True Love 1980' follows the critically acclaimed 'Return Of White Rabbit' dropped earlier this summer. Where 'Return of White Rabbit' showcased angular guitars and growling basslines, 'True Love 1980' delivers a perfect slice of Back-To-The-Future synth pop balladry from Ash's hit writing engine room.
