TAPSheet: Release Notes – 04/10/2014 (US Report)

A few brief notes before we dig into what little there is to notate as upcoming releases:

Johnny Winter has a new album in the works to be named Step Back. Joe Perry of Aerosmith fame will be in some of the songs.  No word on actual release date as of yet.

Jackson Browne will release Late For The Sky on a 180g LP issue in addition to the expected CD remaster expected earlier (thanks, Simon). No release date for the LP as of yet.

Classic German ambient band, Tangerine Dream, will release a 2014 “live” studio version of the Sorcerer soundtrack with a few songs found on the original soundtrack not there, but augmented with additional songs that were not used in the original album.  All in all, this makes the entire set a near “must have” (a MUST HAVE for serious fans).  With the upcoming remaster of the film on Blu-ray, this is a good time to explore further.


The Sorcerer 2014 album will be two CDs.  The first album will contain ten tracks (the original had twelve), which means that “Main Title”, and “Rain Forest” will be excluded. the second disc will contain the previously mentioned unreleased material in new recording form. The original music had been lost, with only notes surviving.  It is these notes that Froese uses to recreate them in a 2014 setting.  Nevertheless, Sorcerer 2014 should be extraordinary. I’m really looking forward to it myself.
