Elvis Presley / Aloha From Hawaii via Satelitte
The horrible cover remains, but this new two-disc RCA/Legacy edition of Elvis‘s 1973 live concert comes with a freshly remixed bonus disc of the rehearsal performance, and five extra tracks that were unique to US TV at the time. No quad mix though.
Suede / Bloodsports
The overpriced box sets are best avoided, but Suede‘s new album works nicely as a 10-track CD, and is something of a return to form for a band (in this line-up) that has only really ever produced one great long player (Coming Up).
Billy Bragg / Tooth & Nail
Billy Bragg‘s new laid back album – produced by Joe Henry – is available as a CD+DVD deluxe edition packaged as a quality hardback book set. The bonus disc features 10 promo videos from 1986-2002 and the book includes some writings from Bragg.

Inspiral Carpets / Life (Extended Edition)
EMI reissue the 1990 debut album from ‘Madchester’ indie band The Inspiral Carpets. This deluxe ‘extended’ edition comes with a DVD of the 21790 live gig recorded at Manchester’s G Mex on… you guessed it 21/7/90. A certain Noel Gallagher was part of the road crew for that day.
