Cream and Rod Stewart Titles Arrive On Vinyl in June

On June 23, there will be a series of releases on vinyl LP that vinyl fans will want to take note of.

Watch for Mercury Records to re-release five Rod Stewart titles on LP. They will include: An Old Raincoat Will Never Let You Down (1969), Gasoline Alley (1970), Every Picture Tells A Story (1971), Never A Dull Moment (1972), and Smiler (1974). For me, these represent the golden years of Rod Stewart.

Those titles include: Fresh Cream (1966), Disraeli Gears (1967), Wheels Of Fire (1968), Goodbye (1969), Live Cream (1970), and Live Cream – Volume II (1972).



TAPSheet: Release Notes – 10/16/2014 (US Report)

The strangest set being prepped for distribution is the upcoming 4CD Box featuring Joni Mitchell. In this set, Joni Mitchell has arranged her classic tracks in a series of four ballets heard over the four CDs. Joni has purposefully aligned the tracks in such a way as to create art in its own way. I will admit to this being a different way to present original music, to take classic tracks, and make a story with them. The CDs are packaged into a book with lyrics, photos, six new paintings, and new notes by Joni Mitchell herself. All of the songs are newly remastered. However, looking at it however you wish, Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet, A Ballet, Waiting To Be Danced, will be released on November 17 via Rhino Records. (Joni, how about a new album instead?)
