Bob Marley & The Wailers / Live! (3LP vinyl set)

Bob Marley & The Wailer‘s classic 1975 Live! album is reissued as a triple vinyl deluxe package featuring the complete sets from both July ’75 shows at the London Lyceum. Read more


Rush / 2112 (deluxe and super deluxe editions)

Rush reissue their 2112 album for the second time in four years. No 5.1 this time but a rather dubious ‘covers’ CD where other artists perform Rush material. Read more


Dead Or Alive / Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI (vinyl box)

The 10LP version of this troubled Dead Or Alive set is released this week. All the albums are pressed on clear vinyl except for the bonus 10-inch which is an amazon exclusive. Read more


Crowded House / Time On Earth (vinyl LP)

Crowded House‘s 2006 album is a bit of a slow coach as far as the vinyl reissue is concerned, but the 2LP set is issued this week. Read more


Bon Jovi / This House Is Not For Sale: Live From The London Palladium

No flies on Bon Jovi. Their recent studio album This House Is Not For Sale has been out for barely a month, and already we have a live album. Depressing, in a way.


Visage / The Wild Life: The Best Of 1978 to 2015

Delayed from last week. Decent cover art aside, this new Visage ‘best of’ is rather unremarkable.  Read more


Evanescence / The Ultimate Collection (6LP vinyl box)

A career-spanning vinyl box of Evanescence studio albums which includes the commercial debut for the previously unreleased demo album Origin. Not out until January in the USA.


Killing Joke / Vinyl picture discs

Caroline International are releasing the Killing Joke E.G. Records catalogue – including their 1980 self-titled debut album – on vinyl picture disc, with each limited to 1000 copies.


Love and Rockets / Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven (blu-ray audio)

Love and Rockets‘ 1985 debut is issued on the blu-ray audio format featuring a lossless 5.1 remix.

    This Bank Balance Doesn’t Top Itself Up,Ya Know.Eh, Jon.

  2. Jon C says:

    I’d totally buy that L&R just to hear a 5.1 mix of “Saudade” (one of the most gorgeous acoustic songs of the 80s ever), but alas, I do not have the components in which to play it on. :(

  3. Kevin says:

    Yeah, that Love & Rockets release seemed to come out of ‘nowhere’. Paul, any info on whether any other similar L&R releases are in the offing or is this a one-off?

    Hi Paul. I really enjoy your blog having been religiously checking it daily for that last couple of years. Is there any particular reason why you never mention any Super Deluxe Editions from Renaissance? They have an excellent 3CD/1DVD box set “Live at the BBC” scheduled for release this week.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Hi Robin… not really… other than they aren’t a band naturally ‘visible’ on my radar. But thanks for giving it a mention here.

        Paul
        I would guess Robin Trower is not on the radar either. Any news about him? He is still a massive concert draw in the US

          @j, Paul did mention the first four Procol Harum albums being reissued by Esoteric in 2015 on which Robin plays. It would be impossible for him to track every artist, but I was pleasently surprised to see those mentioned as they are excellent. Looking forward to seeing PH at the Festival Hall in March with full orchestra.

      • Neil says:

        They did the theme tune to The Paper Lads.
