Rhino Records' Handmade imprint has announced that on September 25 it will start distributing the first in a series of CDs of rare and previously unreleased music from The Doors. The recordings will mark the debut of the Bright Midnight label, owned and operated by the surviving members of the band.

This Tuesday brings the new album, Hyacinths and Thistles, from The 6ths - the new project of Stephen Merritt of The Magnetic Fields. The Merge Records release is an unusual collaborative effort with different guest vocalists on each track performing in the European "chanson" cabaret style.

Vinyl purists who dig the deep glossy black pizza can salivate in the news that MCA and the Hendrix Experience imprint have announced that in mid-September they'll release an 8-LP box set of Jimi Hendrix rarities.
