We’re at that point in the season where the labels seem to go to sleep for the remainder of the year. That’s not to say that they’re totally out of the picture. I’m sure there is a minor surprise here or there. But that’s about it. So, here’s some titles on the calendar for you to choose from:
Vinyl is still in an upsurge. With that, there are plenty of titles being resurrected for vinyl reissuing.
On January 15, Reprise will release “White Walker” by Mastodon. It’s a Game Of Thrones-related track. It will be offered as a 12″ vinyl picture disc.
Elektra Records will release a 3LP collection for Linda Ronstadt called Just One Look. The LP set will feature 30 newly remastered (2015) tracks from her vast career on three LPs. The 2CD set of the same 30 tracks was released in late August of this year.
Also on January 15, Atlantic Records will provide LP vinyl for two Rush titles that include Snakes & Arrows (2LP, 2007), and Feedback (covers, 2004).
