George Michael / Listen Without Prejudice reissue - super deluxe box set

George Michael / Listen Without Prejudice, Vol 1 

Finally. After the small matter of delays due to the production of the Freedom documentary (on UK TV’s Channel 4 tonight) and then the rather larger issue of untimely death of George Michael, the reissue of Listen Without Prejudice is here, a year late. This now becomes last GM archival release that he was alive to influence. Read more

John Carpenter / Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998

The good news is that this single CD release collects 13 classic themes from John Carpenter’s career including Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York and The Fog. The bad is that these are not the originals – each theme has been newly recorded, albeit with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.

  1. Ian Harris says:

    Is the Fagen set remastered or the standard CDs in a slipcase?

    • Mark Carroll says:

      Yeah, I’d be interested in that answer, must admit….

    • Christopher Bloom says:

      I suspect that four of the five CDs are the “Trilogy” box (The Nightfly/Kamakiriad/Morph the Cat/Rarities) from a few years ago, which was remastered. I’d be surprised if they bothered to remaster Sunken Condos, since it’s only a few years ago. Sunken Condos is great, by the way. I think it’s his best solo record since The Nightfly.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        Totally agree about Sunken Condos… it’s absolutely fantastic. The double clear vinyl in gatefold sleeve was also gorgeous, which adds to the overall appeal.

  2. Marc says:

    Fagen is dissapointing. The extra’s offer nothing new, they are exactly the same as the extra’s with the earlier 2008 box-set

    • Klaus says:

      Agreed. But don’t forget to mention that the Nightfly-Trilogy box has long been deleted and is almost unavailable for sane prices currently. So this gives people who are interested in Fagens solo-work the possibility to discover it for a good price. You certainly don’t need this if you have the N-T box, you’re better off then, if you just buy a copy of Sunken Condos if you haven’t done so yet.

      • Simonf says:

        I found a vinyl copy of The Nightfly in a charity shop a year or two back and bought it out of sheer curiosity. What a bloody wonderful album it is. Every home should have a copy.
        Secondly, wow! I thought the Jam set was not out until the end of the month. That’s cheered me up no end, having suffered a stinking cold all w/end. Looking forward to my copy arriving on Friday from the official Jam store so I get the free poster as well. If it’s anything like the poster given with the Small Faces Complete Decca Collection set a couple of years back it will be well worth it!

  3. Paul E. says:

    I’m really looking forward to The Smiths’ “The Queen Is Dead” SDE as it seems like I’ve had that on pre-order forever. In the meantime, I’ve been thirsting my quench for all things Smiths by downloading the (or at least, attempting to) the 10 live single performances in FLAC from 7Digital’s U.S. site. I have 9 of the 10 but the site still owes me “There Is A Light… (live from the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago). Have emailed them and received no response thus far- a shame since I was at this show at 16 and this was my first, last, and only Smiths concert.

    Guess this is just another reason why I prefer CD and don’t like downloading.

  4. Bill Hammell says:

    I have all the CDs individually. How important is that rarities disc? Thanks.

  5. negative1 says:

    If you’re a fagen fan, then the rarities disc is an essential.
    Tons of hard to find tracks, that could easily have been on
    the album.

    Acxording to my retailer, Listen Without Prejudice Deluxe is postponed to december 16th.

  7. DaveM says:

    Got an email from Amazon UK this morning stating that the Tim Buckley Venice Mating Call is put back to 27th October. Interesting that US buyers of the CD have reported a 10 second silence in the middle of one track so hopefully Edsel will have this sorted for the UK and that may be the reason for the delay.

  8. The Progster says:

    Out this Friday the brand new album from the very talented UK singer songwriter JESSIE WARE – “Glasshouse” is her third album…includes the gorgeous new single “Alone” as performed on the Jools Holland show a couple of weeks ago…she needs to become a household name…think of a cross between Adele and Sade and you have Jessie Ware…very soulful.

  9. wingspan1985 says:

    The Zappa Halloween box is still coming out Friday isn’t it? I have it preordered, really looking forward to this set. I know the USB format is a sticking point for some, but I mainly listen to music on my Pono, so it works out great for that.
