This Week's Interesting Music Releases - November 9, 2010

Orange Juice's Coals to Newcastle is a 6-CD & 1-DVD box set that collects the seminal Scottish band's entire discography as well as their BBC sessions.

The Tallest Man on Earth's Sometimes the Blues is Just a Passing Bird EP is the highlight of a relatively slim list of new releases. I can also definitely recommend The Concretes' WYWH, Maserati's Pyramid of the Sun, and Phil Wilson's God Bless Jim Kennedy.

Frances England's Mind Of My Own is filled with smart children's music that adults will enjoy as well.

Reissues include a remastered edition of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Damn The Torpedoes, and the greatest hits package An Introduction to Syd Barrett (which includes both Barret's solo work and his Pink Floyd songs) feature five remastered tracks.

What new releases are you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything noteworthy off the list?
