After years out of print, Rickie Lee Jones’ first two albums are available on LP. Rickie’s self-titled debut album and the lauded follow up Pirates were re-released digitally, on CD and on long overdue vinyls.

Released in 1979, her self-titled debut on Warner Brothers won her the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and reached #3 on the Billboard Albums chart.

The album’s brilliant songs include the exceptional “On Saturday Afternoons in 1963“, the haunting “Last Chance Texaco“, and the popular “Chuck E’s In Love“, a top 5 pop single.

Two years after that Grammy-winning debut, Jones released her much anticipated sophomore effort Pirates, which was awarded 5/5 stars by Rolling Stone and called “a remarkable piece of work” by The New York Times.

In recent years, Pirates’ reputation has continued to grow. British magazine The Word included the record as one of pop music’s 25 Most Underrated Albums of All Time while NPR Music listed it on their 150 Greatest Albums Made by Women.
