But first, this message...

BRING US YOUR CDs AND DVDs!

Running out of room on your CD shelves? Running out of money for new CDs? Both? Neither? Whatever -- WE WANT TO BUY YOUR CDs AND DVDs! Trade them in for credit towards other discs or get cold hard cash. Bring 'em to our office or, if you've got too many, WE WILL MAKE HOUSECALLS, as long as you're a reasonably priced cab ride from our office. All types of music and movies accepted! Just remember that we've got to resell this stuff, and the market for Vitamin C and old N'Sync discs is not exactly red-hot right now, so expect to be paid according to what you've got. CALL US at (212) 244-3460 or EMAIL US at HEYNYCD@aol.com!

Do you long for those bygone days when you could stop by NYCD, root through a bunch of mail crates, and find a bunch of great CDs for a mere $2 apiece? Well, hold on to your hats -- THIS TUESDAY, MAY 9, from 10 AM- 4 PM, NYCD will once again be opening its doors to you, our loyal public, for a BIG BIG $1.99 CRATE SALE!

And now... NEXT WEEK'S NEW RELEASES!

NEIL YOUNG: LIVING WITH WAR.
Neil wrote and recorded this album, a critique of the Iraq War and the Bush Administration, in a mere three days just a few weeks ago. Get it hot off the presses this Tuesday! This is arousing more attention than any Neil Young album in recent memory, not just for its lyrical content, but because it's a strong album musically as well. Includes the hit single "Let's Impeach The President!"

JOHN CALE: NEW YORK IN THE 1960s.
Apart from his work with the Velvet Underground, John Cale was a bigtime contributor to the downtown NYC avant-garde scene in the '60s. This 3 CD archival set includes rare and unreleased recordings of his non-Velvets work from that golden era.

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART: CAPTAIN'S LAST LIVE CONCERT... PLUS.
Not only do you get Mr. Van Vliet's last live performance, you also get an interview with Ry Cooder about his work with Beefheart, PLUS an interview with the Captain himself!

JIM DICKINSON: FISHING WITH CHARLIE.
A spoken word album by the legendary producer and recording artist. The man's certainly got some stories to tell, having worked and drunk with just about everyone who passed through Memphis over the last 35 years or so.

GNARLS BARKLEY: ST. ELSEWHERE.
The eagerly anticipated collaboration between the famed hip-hop producer Danger Mouse and rapper Cee-Lo from Goodie Mob.

CHRIS ISAAK: BEST OF.
All of the brilliant retro-rocker's biggest hits from his two decade recording career, as well as three new songs. Available as a CD or a CD/DVD combo, which features 18 videos and commentary by the man himself.

KORN: LIVE & RARE.
13 tracks, 10 of which are previously unreleased, by the band who, no matter how little we may care about them, are certainly a lot better than Limp Bizkit.

NICK LACHEY: WHAT'S LEFT OF ME.
By criss-crossing the country and weeping on any TV and radio station that will have him, Nick has won the public's sympathy and made ex-wife Jessica Simpson seem like a pretty rotten gal. Buying a copy of his latest solo album will certainly make him feel a little less heartbroken, don't you think? Come on, have you seen how miserable he is? It's so sad!

BETTYE LAVETTE: CHILD OF THE SEVENTIES.
From Rhino Handmade comes a limited edition version of a previously unreleased album by the amazing soul songstress, recorded at Muscle Shoals for Atlantic Records in 1972. Includes the entire album along with rare single tracks and outtakes from her other early '70s Atlantic sessions.

BARRY MANILOW: REMASTERS.
Barry Manilow II, Even Now and Tryin' To Get The Feeling, all newly remastered with previously unreleased bonus tracks. Buying these is definitely less embarrassing than getting his dreadful new album, so don't be ashamed.

NEW YORK DOLLS: FROM HERE TO ETERNITY.
3 CDs of rare live recordings from 1973-84, many of which are previously unreleased. Comes in a very purty 5"x5" lift-top box!

NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS: PARADISE ROCK CLUB - BOSTON, MA 11/12/05.
A limited edition live recording from one of the most cookin' bands around. Get it while you can!

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS: STADIUM ARCADIUM.
The Chili Peppers' first album in four years is a sprawling, 2 CD set that the band is calling the best thing they've ever done, and advance press is suggesting that they're not just whistling Dixie. Includes the hit single "Dani California."

PAUL SIMON: SURPRISE.
The surprise here is that the new Paul Simon album features songs co-written with producer/recording artist/genius/weirdo Brian Eno. We're not sure whether that's a cool or annoying thing, given Simon's past stylistic dabblings, but we're definitely eager to hear it.

SUSANA BACA: TRAVESIAS.
Not only is Susana Baca one of our favorite Afro-Peruvian artists, she's also probably the only one who we're familiar with. Regardless, she's got an incredible voice, and we have loved her last few albums. Her latest, which explores styles from Africa, Haiti, France, Ireland and Italy in addition to her native Peru, should continue her string of excellent records.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS: Severe Tire Damage.
A reissue of their long-out-of-print first live album. Mentioned only because Sal, who hates TMBG, is not here, and Tony, who not only likes TMBG but attended the shows which wound up on this CD, is writing the newsletter solo this week.

VARIOUS ARTISTS: SAIL AWAY: A RANDY NEWMAN
TRIBUTE. One of the greatest songwriters of the rock era gets covered by the likes of Steve Earle, Sonny Landreth, Guster, Marc Broussard and more. One of those rare tribute albums that may actually be good!

TO ORDER ANY OF THESE CDs, OR IF THERE ARE ANY WE DIDN'T MENTION THAT YOU WANT TO GET, EMAIL US (HEYNYCD@aol.com) OR CALL (212) 244-3460!

IN STOCK NOW, IN LIMITED QUANTITIES!

RODDY FRAME: WESTERN SKIES.
The latest solo album by the former Aztec Camera frontman -- IMPORT ONLY!

BOBBY TAYLOR: THE MOTOWN ANTHOLOGY.
Best known for his 1968 smash hit "Does Your Mama Know About Me," this European collection gives you 46 classic late '60s Motown groovers, including over a dozen previously unreleased tracks. The Motown vaults are deep with great music, and this is no exception.

CAROLYN FRANKLIN: SISTER SOUL.
Aretha's younger sister was quite the singer in her own right, even if she never really broke through commercially. This is a collection of her hard-to-find RCA recordings -- 22 tracks spanning 1969-76. Not out in the US!

RESERVE YOUR COPY NOW! VERY VERY FEW IN STOCK! EMAIL OR CALL!

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS:

Don't forget to come by for the RETURN OF NYCD's $1.99 CRATE CD SALE! THIS TUESDAY, 5/9 FROM 10 AM-4 PM!

Your friend,
That guy who did the Pathmark commercials in the '70s and '80s who looked a little like John Chancellor -- you know who I'm talking about?
