The Doors’ Full Circle/Other Voices Albums Coming to CD and LP In September

Elektra Records will release a 2CD set featuring Full Circle, and Other Voices. The two Doors classic albums will be joined by “Treetrunk”, a non-album B-side of “Get Up And Dance” from the Full Circle sessions. This, however, has been released before. It will likely be remastered as there are also 180g-weight vinyl sets coming for both albums. If there is remastering for the LPs, they will likely be included on this CD set.

The Full Circle/Other Voices sets are scheduled for September 4.


New Reissues In The Paul McCartney Archive Series, Tug Of War, Pipes Of Peace, Planned For September

I note that two new Paul McCartney reissues are now on the calendar. The two titles, Pipes of Peace (1983), and Tug of War (1982), have already been teased in the inserts to the previous Paul McCartney Archive Series. While there are no details that I’ve come across as to what’s on the offerings, the expected date of arrival for both are September 18.

I Should Coco by Supergrass Gets 3CD 20th Anniversary Reissue In September

Supergrass I Should CocoThe music of Supergrass is best defined as a hard-edged, almost punkish, form of Pop/Rock style. They released their first album, I Should Coco back in 1995. The album produced successful singles like “Alright”, which reached number two on the UK charts. The others were “Caught By the Fuzz”, “Mansize Rooster”, “Lose It”, and “Lennie”. Anytime you have five singles from an album, you’re doing something right. And with I Should Coco being the band’s debut, it just meant they were warming up.

On September 4, Rhino Records, Parlophone Records will reissue I Should Coco as a 3CD Deluxe Edition filled with extras. And don’t forget new remastering.

I Should Coco (which is Cockney slang for “I should think so”) will feature the original album in this new Edition, along with extra discs filled with B-sides, live recordings, demos, and other goodies. The set will come with a 20-page booklet that will have photos (including an unpublished photo), a Melody Make review of a live show in Feb ’95 in Glasgow at King Tut’s., and the singles covers artwork that will include the special edition release on Record Store Day 2015 (“Sofa (Of My Legacy)” b/w “I Believe In Love”.

I Should Coco will also reissue as a 180g vinyl LP that will include a bonus 7″ vinyl single (“Stone Free”/”Odd?”)

Three Classic Stones Titles In Limited Edition LP/Lithograph Sets

Time/Life, in conjunction with Abkco Records, will release three collectible vinyl sets of classic Rolling Stones titles. Those will include 12 x 5 (1964), a US release that combined the UK 5-track (5 x 5). adding more songs like “Time Is On My Side”, and “It’s All Over Now” to make a full LP; the classic tracks rich Let It Bleed (1969); and one of the great live albums of Rock and Roll history found in Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! (1970). These sets go beyond being just mere vinyl reissues, though.

The three titles will be offered as a Limited Edition clear vinyl LP, accompanied by a lithograph of the album cover (image measures 16″ x 16″). After the run of 2500 copies of each title, the plates are going to be destroyed, which means no possibility of future reproduction.

Stones LPs and Lithographs

In addition to being made available for purchase now (they run around $200 ea) via the Spotlight Gallery website (here), they will be sold at an on-site LA gallery location (Mr Musichead Gallery / Hollywood) on June 18, and in NYC at The ARChive of Contemporary Music (Soho) on July 9.

If you’re interested, get your order in before they’re gone.


2CD Deluxe Edition Of Argus by Wishbone Ash Planned For July (UK Report)

Argus 2CD Wishbone AshMany of you who know me, know that I’m a fan of Wishbone Ash. While I have a tendency to favor Wishbone Four (1973) – which was their highest-charting US album – , I do have great love for Argus (1972). So, you might ask? Well, it appears that the UK market will be reissuing Argus in a 2CD Deluxe Edition (why not 180g vinyl LP?) with bonus tracks (see track-list below).

The releasing company is Culture Factory, which is touting a 96k/24-bit remaster.  I believe the last time it was remastered was for the SHM-SACD (which I was unimpressed with), and before that, the Martin Turner remaster from 2002.

On July 27, Argus Deluxe Edition will be released in the UK. One of the bonus tracks is the single edit of “No Easy Road”, which is from Wishbone Four (so what’s it doing here, or all of the other editions?). Also, the famed Live In Memphis promo only set is halfway represented here with “The Pilgrim”, and “Phoenix”. The bonus CD adds in eight BBC In Concert session tracks.

Just give me a remastered Argus 180g vinyl LP. I’ll be quite happy for it.

Four Van Halen Titles Remastered For July

Van_Halen_-_Van_Halen_IIEarly in 2015, the Van Halen camp released remasters of the Van Halen debut (1978), and 1984 (1984). Those were presented in variable packages. Now, on July 10, the band will continue further into their catalog with the remastered reissues of Van Halen II (1979), Women And Children First (1980), Fair Warning (1981), and Diver Down (1982).

The new remasters are being done by Chris Bellman, who had done earlier remasters. They will be reissued via Rhino Records.

Those four titles will not only be available on CD. but will also release as DD and 180g vinyl LP.

We already knew (more or less) that these four titles were next, but we didn’t have a date. Now you do.
