Ballads of the Book It's all kilts, libraries, and rock 'n' roll in a new disc that pairs hip Scottish musicians and hip Scottish writers. Next week Chemikal Underground Records releases Ballads of the Book, a CD conceived by Roddy Woomble of Idlewild after working with author Edwin Morgan on the band's Remote Part album. While I must admit I'm not familiar with the literary pedigrees of each of these 18 collaborations, the music side of the page includes Mike Heron of the Incredible String Band, Aidan Moffat of Arab Strap, Norman Blake, King Creosote, The Trashcan Sinatras, and Vashti Bunyan.

Goo Goo Dolls Two hit CDs from last year are getting the expanded "deluxe edition" reissue treatment this Tuesday. Warner Bros. Records hopes customers come 'round a second time for the Goo Goo Dolls' Let Love In, now featuring a bonus live DVD and acoustic versions of "Better Days" and "We'll Be Here (When You're Gone)." An avalanche of goodies makes Beck's The Information three-disc reissue worth spending time with, featuring tracks only found as international B sides; a CD of remixes by Bumblebeez, Jamie Lidell, and David Andrew Sitek of TV on the Radio; and a DVD of all Beck's homemade videos for the album, as well as Michel Gondry's video for "Cell Phone's Dead."

All hail the great soundtrack composer Ennio Morricone! Not familiar? I'll bet a few bars of the themes from The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly or Once Upon a Time in the West are all you'll need to connect to his hypnotic genius, and you're in good company. Next Tuesday Sony Music's classical division will release a new tribute album, We All Love Ennio Morricone, featuring artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion,and Yo-Yo Ma alongside pop stars covering some of his most memorable tunes. Five years in the making to clear through all the multi-label paperwork, highlights include Quincy Jones & Herbie Hancock putting a new face on "The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly," Roger Waters' take on "Lost Boys Calling," Bruce Springsteen's run through "Once Upon a Time in the West," and Metallica putting "The Ecstasy of Gold" from The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly through its crucible.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, filmmaker John Waters follows up his wonderfully weird Christmas-music collection from 2004 with a new CD for lovers, featuring 14 personally selected "come hither" wolf-whistles from his own twisted-kitsch record collection. New Line Records invites you on A Date with John Waters this week, a wild ride of oddball nuggets that kicks off with "Tonight You Belong to Me," a 45-RPM ditty from 1956 by 11- and 14-year-old sisters Patience & Prudence - the first record the five-finger-discounting Waters admits he ever shoplifted. Alongside tracks from Clarence "Frogman" Henry, Jet Boy Jet Girl, Dean Martin, Mildred Bailey, and Ike & Tina Turner, a few of Waters' cohorts in shock cinema made the cut, with Edith "Egg Lady" Massey's "Big Girls Don't Cry" and Mink Stole's cover of "Sometimes I Wish I Had a Gun."
