    Emmylou Harris, Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint Record Store Day Releases Now in Nonesuch Store

    When the 10th annual Record Store Day celebration took place last month, among the special items were new vinyl releases featuring classic titles from three artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Allen Toussaint, Emmylou Harris, and Randy Newman. A limited number of all three vinyl releases is now available in the Nonesuch Store.

    The Allen Toussaint Collection, a 1991 compilation of tracks from the legendary New Orleans musician's first four albums—From a Whisper to a Scream; Life, Love and Faith; Southern Nights; and Motion—receives its first-ever vinyl release in this two-LP, three-sided pressing, limited to 1,500. The fourth side of the vinyl features an etching of a quotation from Toussaint. All Music Guide calls the set "one of the greatest greatest hits albums of '70s soul, funk, and R&B." To order it in the Nonesuch Store, click here.

    Emmylou Harris's Queen of the Silver Dollar: The Studio Albums, 1975–79 comprises Harris's first five studio albums—Pieces of the Sky, Elite Hotel, Luxury Liner, Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town, and Blue Kentucky Girl—on vinyl and a bonus 45 RPM of "Light of the Stable" and "Little Drummer Boy" from her 1979 Christmas album. The collection will receive a limited release of 1,000. To order it in the Nonesuch Store, click here.

    Randy Newman's Lonely at the Top: Studio Albums, 1968–77 comprises Newman's first five studio albums—Randy Newman, 12 Songs, Sail Away, Good Old Boys, and Little Criminals—on vinyl and a bonus 45 RPM of alternate versions of "You Can Leave Your Hat On" and "Last Night I Had a Dream." The collection will receive a limited release of 1,000. To order it in the Nonesuch Store, click here.

    Rob Mazurek's new album with Exploding Star Orchestra, Dimensional Stardust, is out now via International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Mazurek arranged his pieces for eleven musicians, including Jeff Parker, and commissioned his long-time lyrics collaborator Damon Locks to draft original texts for the songs. The album recalls an array of Mazurek’s symphonic­ influences, from Béla Bartók to Morton Feldman to Gil Evans to Sun Ra to Pedro Santos to Bill Dixon to The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Opting to focus on tight ensemble orchestration over passages of open improvisation, he distills an orchestra of explosive improvisers into a graceful group exercise in melodic minimalism.
