Bowie vinyl

After David Bowie‘s creative nadir in the second half of the 1980s, Tin Machine kicked off a over a decade of creativity that took in soundtrack-inspired art rock (Buddha of Suburbia), experimental pop-jazz-funk fusion (Black Tie White Noise), drum and bass (Earthling) and even, a-hem, a ‘non-linear gothic drama hyper-cycle’ (Outside). The wishy-washy Hours (1999) was the exception rather than the rule, underlined by the back-to-back triumph of Heathen (2002) and Reality (2003).

In stock: Donna Summer: Another Place and Time white vinyl box

DS_UK12_Singles_Boxset_3D_HR

The Donna Summer Another Place and Time white vinyl 12-inch box was highly sought after at this year’s Record Store Day, resulting in sets changing hands for three-figure prices on eBay after the event. I have bad news if you’ve paid a lot for this since there is now some stock available for purchase on the Official Donna Summer store.

Duran Duran / Japanese Rio reissue offers exclusive bonus tracks

rio_japan

SDE reported last week that Duran Duran‘s Rio was being reissued. For diehard fans this seemed a case of ‘nothing to see here’ since the track listing simply repeated the 2009 deluxe edition, but it has become apparent in the last few days that the 2015 Japanese edition of this reissue DOES appear have some exclusive bonus tracks!

Phil Collins / Face Value deluxe edition to be released in 2015

Phil Collins deluxe editions

Even I was surprised at the massive response at the news this week that we can expect all of Phil Collins‘ solo albums to be reissued as deluxe editions thanks to a new deal with Warner Music. Almost 100 comments left by your good selves, and apart from the odd naysayer, it was virtually all positive and enthusiastic. We know that Face Value and Both Sides are on the way, but let’s just hope Warners can match your ambition for these titles because you want 5.1 mixes, all the bonus remixes and b-sides and perhaps some demos! 2CD+blu-ray sets were mentioned a few times. So c’mon Warners, let’s not settle for Private Dancer style 2CD sets that have significant holes in the track listing!
