Anthony Phillips / Sides deluxe

anthonyphilips_sides

Anthony Philips‘ third album Sides is to be reissued this April as an expansive 3CD+DVD deluxe edition, by Esoteric Recordings.

The ex-Genesis guitarists’ 1979 long-player was produced by Rupert Hine and saw him supported by an able cast of musicians that included Mike Giles & Mel Collins (King Crimson), John G. Perry (Caravan, Quantum Jump) and John Hackett (a member of his brother Steve’s band).

This deluxe edition features a new stereo mix of the album, a newly re-mastered version of the original stereo mix and a CD of demos, out-takes and extras.

Even better, this comes with a new 5.1 Surround Sound Mix of the record on DVD (region-free, NTSC) and an illustrated booklet with a new essay by Jon Dann featuring interviews with Anthony Phillips and Rupert Hine

Sides is released on 15 April 2015.

Pet Shop Boys respect the B-side with new single The Pop Kids

psb-2016

While contemporaries like Duran Duran and a-ha have long since abandoned the idea of the B-side (arguably even the single), the Pet Shop Boys continue to offer fans non-album tracks with their single releases, with three new songs being issued with The Pop Kids, the first 45 from their new album SUPER.

Top 10 Wogan music performances

kate

Legendary UK broadcaster Terry Wogan has died aged 77. The Irishman hosted the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show for 12 years between 1972 and 1984 and his popular TV chat show Wogan ran for three nights a week between 1985 and 1992.

The popularity of this show meant it was a highly regarded slot for music promotion, and crucially, unlike Top Of The Pops, acts could perform on the show (virtually always lip-synching) before their single had entered the UK top 40. Here, SDE presents you some of our favourite Wogan performances over the years…

Saturday Deluxe / 30 Jan 2016

psb_superlpPet Shop Boys are back and in a couple of months will release a new album SUPER. It’s too early to start writing it off, but the song they’e made available, Inner Sanctum, has all the drama of It’s a Sin, without, er, the song. It sounds like they’ve skipped the ‘album version’ and cut straight to the club remix. Or make that dub remix  since this song has 17 words which are repeated three times “In the inner sanctum you’re a star, the girls, the guys, they all know who you are”. And that’s it.
