    Any news on the separate disc editions of the Steve Hackett box? I thought I heard somewhere to discs would be available on their own.

    Paul,
    Shouldn’t the Frida – Something’s Going On 2015 Deluxe Box Set be listed as well as its planned release date is 23rd October.
    Besides the box set, a standard Deluxe Edtion (CD&DVD) will be released on the same date too.

  3. ChristopherM says:

    There is also a “Sweet – Action!” 3-DVD box set.

    The DVD set will be of more interest to fans of a certain age (like me) as it contains the previously unreleased full Musikladen performance from 1974.

    FYI: The CD layer of the Sly & The Family Stone SACD are the original mono hit mixes.

  5. Ian Harris says:

    Had no idea this Devo compilation was in the works. I hope it sounds better than Virgins twofers of their albums.
    Also hope the 7″ edit of Come Back Jonee is present and correct.

    Anyone have any ideas re extra content on the Japanese editions of the 3 Aha special editions mentioned above? I am in Asia next week and can pick stuff up for much the same price as a UK edition.
    cheers

      According to CDjapan these won’t be released over there till December so you won’t be able to pick them up unless you are planning a long stay and the track listings are identical so no extras.
