[UPDATE] Wishbone Ash 30CD Box – The Vintage Years 1970-1991

We now know that this limited Edition 30CD The Vintage Years 1970-1991 Box set featuring a TON of classic Wishbone Ash material including bonus session tracks will be released on April 20 of 2018. The set is limited to only 2500 copies worldwide and will carry a price tag of $337 (US), and £250 (UK).  This set is currently on pre-order.

We also know a bit more about inclusions. The set will not only contain remastered albums (many from original source tapes, as I’ve long understood Wishbone Four, and There’s The Rub original tapes to be considered gone for good) from the Wishbone Ash debut through Strange Affair albums, but also a wealth of bonus material. You can expect ‘rare album outtakes, B-sides, and 12 previously unreleased studio tracks’, all slipcased within mini-LP cardboard gatefold sleeves.

The Live collection will include the first  Live Dates album, Live Dates Volume Two, and Live in Tokyo. The additional live sets include eight previously unreleased live shows, all between the golden era of 1973 through 1980:

  • Portsmouth Guildhall 1973 (2CD) from the Wishbone Four / Live Dates tour.
  • Southampton University 1973 from the Wishbone Four / Live Dates tour.
  • Edinburgh Usher Hall 1976 from the New England tour.
  • Marquee Club 1977 from the Front Page News tour.
  • Newcastle City Hall 1977 from the Front Page News tour.
  • Bournemouth Winter Gardens 1978 (2CD) from the No Smoke Without Fire tour.
  • Guildford Civic Hall 1980 (2CD) from the Just Testing tour.
  • Chelmsford Odeon 1980 from the Blowin’ Free tour.

We know that tracks from the Portsmouth Guildhall show were used in the original Live Dates set. Here, we get the entire show over 2CDs. Unfortunately, that’s all from that album. (This means that a Deluxe Edition of Live Dates is STILL a viable grail set with ALL shows remastered and presented, along with a rich booklet of remembrances, and memorabilia included. C’mon Universal, Martin, and Andy! Please?!)

The Box will also include 156-page book of photos, memories, and other goodies. A 36-poster book is added as are four fold-out posters reproductions of original posters for: Christmas at the Palace Dec 1973, Live Dates European tour – Hamburg Musikhalle 1974, Europe 1975 tour, and the Front Page News tour – Empire Pool Wembley 1977.

A facsimile promo pack from MCA is stuffed into this box along with a 7″ flexidisc of “Blind Eye”. To finish the box, signed photos of the band members will be provided.

You can pre-order here. Don’t assume they will be there when you’re ready. Just sayin’!

Expect another update when we received the exact tracklist of every CD.

 

[UPDATE] 25th 3CD/BD Anniversary Set For Automatic For The People (R.E.M.)

R.E.M. has an anniversary arriving for Automatic For The People. Originally released in 1992, 2017 marks the 25th Anniversary for the classic album that spawned well over eighteen million units of sales.  In addition to the massive sales of the album, there were six singles pulled from the set that include “Drive”, “Man On The Moon”, “The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight”, “Everybody Hurts”, “Nightswimming”, and “Find The River”. You’ll be hard pressed to find yourself not familiar with any one of those songs. Plus, if you’re a serious R.E.M. fan, then the entire album is well-known to you.

On November 10, a 25th Anniversary Edition of Automatic For The People is scheduled. The first CD will contain the original CD. CD2 will provide a 13 performance track live set from their 11/19/1992 show at the 40 Watt Club (Athens, GA). CD3 will deliver 20 demo tracks. The Blu-ray addition will provide a Dolby Atmos 5.1 mix of the original album, videos, and a hi-res Stereo (so it seems) set of the album. There will be a few additional bonuses.

A truncated 2CD Edition will also be made available.

A book will be packed in with filled with brilliant things like notes, photos, and plenty of information surrounding this great album.

[UPDATE] 3CD Deep Purple Compilation Set, A Fire In The Sky

As far as Deep Purple is concerned, one can point o several iterations of the band as heir favorite. Certainly, several MARK lineups have been well-received. The first round of the Ian Gillan years were certainly their most defining. The David Coverdale period had its share of fans as did the Tommy Bolin era. Nevertheless, Deep Purple still remains as one of the great Rock bands of the ’70s.

On September 9, Rhino Records will release a compilation of career-spanning songs called A Fire In The Sky. The planned album is to be released as a selected songs single CD, as well as a more complete collection of all-encompassing Deep Purple tracks for the 3CD Edition.

[UPDATE] New Doors Singles Set Includes Vinyl Singles Box

As we begin our slip into July (the SECOND half of the year!), we find that The Doors are getting some attention. Over the time of their short career, The Doors released a nice collection of singles and long players. In all, there were six studio albums beginning with their self-titled 1967 set, The Doors, and ending with their 1971 L.A. Woman album. They issued a live set, Absolutely Live (1970), and a compilation set, 13 (1970). Since then, there have been a wealth of Doors sets to keep the money exchanging hands.

On August 25, Elektra Records will revisit the territory of The Doors with two packages, three if you count their September Box release (more on this in a bit). The two sets will be called The Singles.

Watch for a 2CD compilation (content information is still unavailable), and a 2CD/BD set, which may likely present HD versions of songs, and maybe…maybe 5.1. Maybe. When content information becomes available, I’ll post an update.

On September 15, Elektra will follow-up with a 7″ vinyl singles box with 20 45s. This box is also being labeled as The Singles.

black-sabbath-the-ultimate-collectionFor many of us, we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 4CD Paranoid Box set of the classic 1970 Black Sabbath album. But before that arrives, BMG will be releasing a nice 2CD ‘best of’ for the band, filled with songs that you know and love. All of the songs found on this collection are representative of the Ozzy-era ONLY!

The new Ozzy-era Anthology is being called The Ultimate Collection. It is planned for CD, DD, hi-res HD DD, and a cool 1980g-weight vinyl LP set with 4LPs.

The 2CD sett is now planned for February 3, 2017.

[UPDATE] Before The Dawn With Kate Bush Information

kate-bush-befor-the-dawnSince this hotly contested post (right, Pat?), the official news has been provided that Kate Bush is, indeed, putting out Before The Dawn. It would now appear that all points of purchase will be getting physical product. Since my original post, several things have happened: 1) 3CD and 4LP sets have been announced, and 2), an date change has occurred that pushes the release date closer by a week. It is now listed as November 25 in areas outside the US. The US will get all issues (3CD, DD, 4LP) on December 2.

The 3CD set and 4LP set will come with a 24-page booklet.

Back in late summer of 2014 on through to October 1, Kate Bush performed a series of shows called Before The Dawn. The shows were spectacularly received as was expected. In fact, two dates were filmed with a potential DVD release in mind. To date, that hasn’t happened (as far as I know). Which leaves a lot of disappointed fans, both attendees and fans that were unable to attend. And here we find ourselves in the latter part of 2016.

before-the-dawn-3cd

On December 2, Concord Records will release a digital album with 29 selected performance tracks that covers three acts of the show. The show ran for 22 dates at the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith. For now, there isn’t anything to indicate a DVD, BD, or even CD for the title. But this is certainly a step in the right direction, I’d say.

[UPDATE] 6CD/1DVD Box For Graham Parker, These Dreams Will Never Sleep: The Best Of Graham Parker 1976-2015

These Dreams Will Never Sleep GP Box CoverRock in the late ’70s and into the early ’80s was an incredible phenomena. It was growing up so fast, we barely had time to get it all into our systems. Part of that magic was Graham Parker & The Rumour. From his debut in 1976 of Howlin’ Wind to his peak set, The Up Escalator in 1980 through his last album, Mystery Glue in 2015, Graham Parker has delivered a varied collection of great albums, 22 of them in all. Seven of them were with The Rumour, one with The Shot, and one with The Figgs. The rest were solo offerings. Consistently released, Graham Parker has covered a lot of years, and a lot of musical ground in his catalog.

On September 30, Universal UK will release a 6CD/1DVD career spanning Box called These Dreams Will Never Sleep: The Best Of Graham Parker 1976-2015 that will provide three anthology CDs, a CD with BBC sessions, and a 2CD set that contains the entire show of Graham Parker & The Rumour’s last set in 2015 that supported Mystery Glue. This live show is previously unreleased.

The DVD adds a collection of performances from Top Of The Pops, and The Old Grey Whistle Test from the ’70s, and an unreleased live concert with The Rumour at The Brook in Southampton (UK). As if these inclusions weren’t enough, a 36-page hardcover book is included filled with photos and notes, an essay, and a new interview with Graham Parker. To make the set even more attractive, a poster, and three postcards will complete the essential Box set.

As of now, there isn’t a track-list available. But when one is displayed, I’ll update this page with it.

Steven Wilson Remix Updates (Yes, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, Tears For Fears, XTC)

Yes Tales From Topographic OceansThere has been a slight date change for the upcoming Steven Wilson remix of YESTales From Topographic Oceans that was originally scheduled for September 26. The new date is now October 6. If you were anxiously awaiting this bliss, you’ll have to wait a week longer. His other project works in release planning are King Crimson 40th Anniversary of the Adrian Belew-era titles (Discipline, Beat, Three Of A Perfect Pair) are still scheduled for October 20, XTC‘s Skylarking, which is on the calendar for October 13, and the upcoming Jethro Tull remix of Stand Up, planned for November 18.

Of interest are the finished but unreleased remixes of the Roxy Music debut, and Tears For FearsSeeds Of Love. It’s crazy that the Roxy Music debut has been finished since 2012!

Of even more interest is the discovery of another set of XTC tapes from the Virgin era. Speculation of which title it is is anyone’s game.

Steven Wilson has also stated in a post that he intends to continue work on he extensive Jethro Tull library, and mentioned This Was, Songs From The Wood, Heavy Horses, and Stormwatch in particular. ‘he also states that he’s not interested in ’80s Tull output so it looks like Stormwatch may be the end.

Finally, he obviously is very interested in doing up Kate Bush titles. Keep your fingers crossed.

Personally, I DARE him to consider (then do) Wishbone Ash‘s Argus. OF course, I’d like to see others but if anyone of these might get his attention, it will be Argus.
