THE TEMPTATIONS: "Psychedelic Shack." That's where it's at.

MOTOWN UNRELEASED: 1969 is a 60-track, digital-only release now streaming online

NEW RELEASES: Paste can point you to Brittany Howard, Hiss Golden Messenger, Liam Gallagher, Vivian Girls and More.

INDIE BASEMENT has a couple of those new releases, but what you want to stream is the remastered “Sunflower,” from The Springfields (jangle-rock masters Ric Menck and Paul Chastain).

THE WHITE STRIPES' final performance is available to stream and download via Nugs.net.

THE BEATLES: Hear a "Come Together" outtake and the 2019 Giles Martin mix.

LEONARD COHEN: Hear the posthumous "The Goal."

RICHARD HAWLEY covers Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man."

THE HIGH LLAMAS' Sean O'Hagan reunites with his former Microdisney bandmate Cathal Coughlan on a new solo song "Candy Clock."

THOM YORKE talks about his ex-partner's death in new interview for BBC Radio 4's 'Desert Island Discs.'

THE 50 MOST VALUABLE records in the world.

THE MEKONS' Rock 'N' Roll turns 30, and it sounds as necessary and urgent today.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at Rod Stewart's horny smash, "Tonight's The Night (Gonna Be Alright)." And some bonus Number Twos you don't want to miss.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Downton Abbey tops the chart with 30MM against a reported budget of 13-20MM. And it's made almost that much outside North America. My guess would be this was a very front-loaded movie for fans of the show, so good thing they had a big debut.  Ad Astra places with 19.2MM, while Rambo: Last Blood shows with 19MM -- close enough that this could flip when moving from estimates to actuals. Ad Astra's budget was reportedly anywhere from 80-100MM, so it has some work to do if it wants to replicate the success of Gravity or Interstellar.  The Rambo flick was budgeted at only 50MM and the return is probably disappointing even at that, echoing the flop of Rocky Balboa before Stallone retooled for CreedIt: Chapter Two takes the fourth slot with 17.2MM, badly trailing its predecessor (which in fairness made a surprising mountain of cash).  Hustlers rounds out the Top Five with 17MM on a 49 percent drop, still a big win for the studio.

THE EMMYS went to these people. Congrats. As someone who liked Fleabag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Game of Thrones, and Chernobyl, I can't complain much.

... with THE BYRDS! To everything there is a season, and when the leaves start turning, my thoughts turn to this rare live threefer of "Turn! Turn! Turn!", "Bells of Rhymney" and "Mr. Tambourine Man", introduced by... David McCallum? There are more screaming girls, plus go-go dancers when they hit Shivaree for "All I Really Want to Do" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better."  There are even more dancers when they cover "Not Fade Away" for Shindig! on June 23, 1965, while I'm pretty sure that's Ed Wynn introducing "Chimes of Freedom."
