Various Artists / Extend The 80s – Hits

Three-CD set of ‘essential’ 12-inch and extended mixes. The usual mixed bag (Two Tribes Annihilation Mix, anyone?) but these are always tempting when they are relatively cheap. A companion Extend The 80s: Groove might be of more interest, since it contains less familiar fare.

Hollywood Beyond / If (2CD expanded edition)

Hollywood Beyond are the very definition of a one-hit-wonder. Everyone remembers What’s The Colour of Money? and not much else. Regardless, this 2CD expanded edition of the-album-no-one-bought has some appeal –  there’s a disc of remixes and I’m curious to discover whether the flop was bad luck or deserved. Read more

Neil Young + Promise of the Real to release soundtrack to 'Paradox'

Neil Young / Paradox

While the film Paradox sounds challenging and a bit self-indulgent, it has resulted in an accompanying Neil Young soundtrack. The CD edition was delayed from last week. Read more

    Also, out this week, following fellow NZer Gin Wigmore’s new release “Ivory” two weeks ago, is the new album by Kimbra entitled “Primal Heart”

    Both artists have moved overseas in order to expand their audience. These are Kimbra’s 3rd album and Gin’s 4th.

    I highly recommend both artist’s debut albums (my favourite from each), but these new albums have received great reviews also.

  2. AndyB says:

    Neil Young delayed again!

  3. Larry Davis says:

    The Flaming Lips’ “Scratching The Door: First Recordings” is out Friday, have a preorder in, was thinking of cancelling it and buying it in person at a store like Newbury Comics, but really, it would be around the same price, and free 2-day shipping, will arrive Friday, so I kept it in…at $11.29US, good price. With that Barry White, strange they did not include “Love’s Theme” on the triple, only the single, or the Love Unlimited hit “Walking In The Rain With The One I Love”, which was Barry’s big break and he cameos on the phone call…on either…there was a great 5CD box called “Unlimited” out 10 years ago which blows away both really…

  4. Klaus says:

    Also due for release this week is the Sting & Shaggy collaboration.

    For those interested:

    Sting and Shaggy played a concert in a church in Cologne (Germany) yesterday in front of 400 people who won their tickets via radio station WDR2.

    This can currently be watched via videostream on the website of said station.

    Here’s the link:

    Why are The Who and Townshend releases so damn expensive? Does Pete need the money that badly? :-)

  6. AndyB says:

    Thank you so much, Paul, for this website. I ordered the Who and Townshend sets when you first posted them. They are now doubled in price! I knew the cheap prices wouldn’t last, so I jumped on board as early as possible. Woo hoo!

  7. SimonP says:

    Seems to be three of the Extend The 80s sets coming out on Friday, there’s another entitled Pop listed on Amazon. There were two others released a few weeks back that I saw in the supermarket and they were a right joke. Repeated artists across the three discs AND some of the songs were repeated on the other album!

  8. José Francisco Correa says:

    I don’t understand why the same album costs twice as much on amazon.es as on amazon.com.

  9. Charles Christopher says:

    I hate to sound like a broken (then reissued) record, but album art is truly dead – that Who live release is the most generic thing I’ve ever seen. I literally could knock that up on Photoshop in an hour.

  10. Mark Hanson says:

    Interesting in looking at the Jethro Tull that prices are about the same on CD and vinyl. Wonder if that reflects a cost reduction in the vinyl manufacturing process (I remember the bad vinyl of the early 80’s).

  11. Joseph Bartram says:

    I am looking forward to the Gomez boxset and the who live 2cd set.

  12. CJL says:

    Re. Wishbone Ash. I’ve already received an email from Burning Shed stating that they’re hoping to get orders to customers by 20th.

  13. CJL says:

    Also due on Friday, the mammoth Wishbone Ash box set. Can’t wait.

  14. Alan says:

    Hope that the Barry White booklet is complete as the one with the CD released last week is blank on one page so you miss a chunk of the story . Has anyone else had problem with the blank page with their CD set. Amazon are sending me a new copy but noticed US review also mentions the missing page so not hopeful.

    • Auntie Sabtina says:

      Alan, there is a review on Amazon (yours?) mentioning the same issue…

    • Robert Lett says:

      The single disc liners for the Barry White thing are very cheap and bare bones, very disappointing. I haven’t opened the 3 disc version yet.

    • Simon says:

      Hello Alan. Yes, my cd booklet has the blank page too. I cannot imagine there will be an actual reprint, this will just be something we put up with.

      • Alan says:

        Amazon sent me a second copy which had the same problem, but they did give me fiver credit which I hadn’t asked for. Shame but as you say think we’ll just have to put up with it.

  15. Caroline says:

    Charli XCX issues her two “mixtapes” – Number 1 Angel and Pop 2 – as a double LP on Friday as well. Very reasonably priced at around £20. Worth thinking about as we get stung £35+ for single LPs for RSD the day after…
