Paul Young / Remixes and Rarities

Paul Young / Remixes and Rarities 2CD compilation

This 24-track, two-CD collection was compiled by SuperDeluxeEdition for Cherry Pop. So we think it’s quite good. Arguably, the only truly essential Paul Young compilation. Read more

The Allman Brothers Band / Brothers and Sisters super deluxe edition

Brothers and Sisters / The Allman Brothers Band (4CD Super Deluxe)

The original album only had seven tracks and one of those was an instrumental (Jessica aka the theme from BBC TV’s long-running car show, Top Gear) but this four CD set celebrates The Allman Brothers Band‘s Brothers and Sisters in fine style, with a bonus disc of rehearsals and outtakes, and two further discs of live performance. Read more


Level 42 / Live At London’s Town and Country Club (DVD)

A March 1992 Level 42 concert from London’s Town and Country Club (now known as the HMV Forum) is captured on this new DVD. The band were at the end of their Guaranteed Tour and played a hits-packed set.


Various Artists / Tabu expanded reissues

Demon Music Group’s Tabu reissues continue with a new wave that includes The S.O.S. Band‘s On The Rise, and Alexander O’Neal‘s third (non-festive) album All True Man. The 1991 record is reissued with a bonus disc full of remixes.


The Weather Girls / Success

The rather slight, six track, 32-minute Weather Girls‘ debut album is expanded by Cherry Red with eight extra bonus tracks including two versions of the theatrical title song and four versions of It’s Raining Men (in addition to the album cut).


The Beat / Wha’ppen? limited vinyl edition

The remastered version of The Beat‘s Wha’ppen was first made available as part of last year’s Vinyl Collection box set. You can now buy it on its own, but be quick, because only 500 are being pressed.


Tangerine Dream / Live At Coventry Cathedral (CD+DVD)

Tony Palmer’s film of Tangerine Dream Live At Coventry Cathedral is issued as this CD+DVD combo set.

    Oops. The previous comment was obviously meant to be posted on the Peter Gabriel Live In Athens thread… :)

    I’ll gladly be the first to comment. Although I did not buy the super deluxe boxset because of the aforementioned exorbitant price, I did however purchase the deluxe 3CD version. Being a huge Peter Gabriel fan, I looked long and hard at the super deluxe set but decided against it because of the high price and the fact that it did not include the bluray. I have the audio of the concert on the 3CD set and found that both the performance and the recording were great, so for me the new bluray release will be a great companion piece to the set I own. With hindsight, I am glad I didn’t buy the super deluxe set because I will now have what I wanted for a fraction of the price. If I had bought it, I would certainly be in agreement that I would deserve a complimentary bluray disc at this point.
