Levon Helm- "Dirt Farmer"

Marvell native Levon Helm releases his first solo album in 25 years today. Helm, who was told he wouldn’t sing again after a 1998 bout with throat cancer, gives a strong, if grizzled, reading of five traditional songs and eight covers of songs by the likes of Steve Earle and A.P. Carter on “Dirt Farmer” (Vanguard). Amy Helm, Levon’s daughter and a member of the Americana outfit Ollabelle, performs with her father along with multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell.  
Finally, "The Definitive Gold Box Edition of Twin Peaks," with the original and European (who knew?) versions of the pilot, and every episode of the first and second seasons, all newly remastered with 5.1 surround sound. 

Or, for the completist in your life more bent towards angsty teen dramas: "My So-Called Life" is completely available in one neat package.

ALSO:

The soundtrack to that new, bizarre-looking Dylan biopic, "I'm Not There," with indie-heroes like Sonic Youth, Jeff Tweedy, Stephen Malkmus and the Hold Steady. You can stream the album here.

The Renaud brothers' "Little Rock Central: 50 Years Later" is out on DVD.

So is "Heavy Metal Parking Lot."
