Rhino continue to put out some excellent ‘Original Album Series’ collections. These are normally five-CD sets, packaged in simple card sleeves and a card slipcase, and priced VERY competitively (normally between £10-12).
Although, as you might expect, you are unlikely to find any bonus tracks on the albums within these sets, you will quite often see previously out-of-print records being included within the offerings.
The reissue imprint have recently launched a new website, originalalbumseries.com to help you stay in touch with what is coming out, and the site also includes some of the ‘Complete Studio Albums’ box sets range, and vinyl reissues in the release schedules.
We have a few of the newest releases to give away to three SuperDeluxeEdition readers. Happy Mondays collects four of the UK band’s studio albums and adds a live set, while Aretha Franklin Vol 2 offers up five of the singer’s late sixties / earlier seventies long-players, including live set Aretha in Paris and This Girl’s In Love With You which – remarkably – was the first commercial release of the Lennon-McCartney composition Let It Be (she’d heard a demo). The third and final prize is Curtis Mayfield Original Album Series which includes his 1970 eponymous debut and Curtis/Live! from 1971, amongst its five CDs.
To be in with a chance of winning one of these sets, simply leave a comment below. We will pick three winners at random on Monday 28 September. The order the three are picked out of ‘the hat’ will determine who gets first choice with these prizes – so the last person to be selected gets what they’re given! Hope that’s clear. This competition is open to all – good luck!
