Suede Celebrates Anniversary of Debut Album With 4CD/DVD 25th Anniversary Silver Edition Box

Suede entered the Rock world with a classic offering in their self-titled debut album back in 1993.  The band stood out from many of their peers, and steadily gained a strong fan-base that exists to this day. To date, Suede has seven released titles including their most recent, Night Thoughts (2016). The best part is that the band is still largely intact.

On March 30, Edsel Records will present a 25th Anniversary multi-disc box of Suede’s first album, pegged as 25th Anniversary Silver Edition. Planned are 4CDs filled with the remastered original album, a collection of previously unreleased demos and single B-sides, a series of BBC sessions, and a live performance from 1993. A DVD (or BD) will offer TV segments, as well as a film discussing the creation of the debut set.

Kittie Celebrates 20 Years With Career Documentary and New Live Set

Some of us at MusicTAP have been fans of the Canadian Metal band, Kittie for some years. In fact, since our start in 2001 (yes, THAT  long ago!), one of our earliest columnists, Duane Leyva, who helmed Duane’s Pit Stop, interviewed Morgan Lander of Kittie for TAP (here) back in 2002. Since, the band has undergone several changes and had endured a death within the ranks (Trish Doan in 2017). Nevertheless, both Morgan, and Mercedes Landers remain with the band, as does Tara McLeod (since 2005).

On March 30, Lightyear Entertainment will release a video documentary set celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the band. This celebratory set will be issued on a 3-disc set that features both DVD and BD (Blu-ray) of the documentary, and a CD featuring a new live album from the band. The documentary details the history of the band with archival footage and interviews. The CD contains the recent live set from the October 27, 2017 London Music Hall show in London, Ontario, Canada. The documentary spans the band’s twenty years while the Live CD is a set of career-spanning music from the current incarnation.

The set is called Origins/Evolutions.  The live show will also be made available on vinyl LP scheduled for April 13.
