Out This Week / on 29 June 2018

Guns N' Roses / Appetite For Destruction super deluxe edition

Guns N Roses / Appetite For Destruction (box sets)

Massive reissue campaign for the 1987 Guns N’ Roses album, although you’ll need to part with a fair bit of cash to enjoy the super deluxe and remortgage the house for the Locked N’ Loaded edition which comes in a wooden cabinet!  Read more


David Bowie / Welcome to the Blackout (Live London ’78)

One of the best David Bowie archive releases for a long time. Welcome to the Blackout is from the same tour as Stage, but is arguably better than the official 1978 album. The vinyl was an RSD exclusive, but this week a two-CD set is available to all. Also Christiane F. (red vinyl) and the Baal EP (black 10-inch) also being reissued, but those are ‘bricks and mortar’ record shops only.  Read more


Buffalo Springfield / What’s That Sound? Complete Albums Collection

Neil Young has supervised the remastering of this Buffalo Springfield three album set. It’s actually five discs because the first two are available in original mono and stereo. Vinyl box is limited to 5,000 copies and includes gatefolds replicating original packaging.   Read more


Yes / The Steven Wilson Remixes (vinyl box)

The Yes AlbumFragileClose To The Edge, Tales From Topographic Oceans, and Relayer are the albums included in this new Yes vinyl box. First time on vinyl for these Steven Wilson remixes which are faithful to the originals and are highly regarded. In the UK the price has gone up in recent weeks, so Brits can save about £40 by picking this up from the USA. Read more


Gorillaz / The Now Now

Gorillaz new album will be available in a number of formats including a deluxe vinyl box set (pictured above) which features a lenticular sleeve, a blue vinyl pressing of the album and a book. Read more


Various Artists / Who’s That Girl 

This soundtrack features four Madonna songs, including UK number one Who’s That Girl. In fact, the material girl named her 1987 tour after the song/album/film. This is part of Rhino’s summer soundtrack reissue campaign, although unfortunately they chosen to press this on black, not coloured vinyl. Read more


Graham Nash / Over The Years (2CD and 2LP vinyl)

I still can’t get over how cheap the two-CD version of this new Graham Nash anthology is, especially since it offers proper archive audio in the shape of unreleased demos, unreleased mixes and was co-curated by Nash himself. The double LP set doesn’t feature any of this and is four times the price! Read more

The Flaming Lips / Seeing The Unseeable: 1986-1990 (6CD box)

This is the ‘Complete Studio Recordings’ from the early days of The Flaming Lips and is a six-CD box set. All the music has been remastered from original sources by David Fridmann with help from Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins. Read more


Lalo Schifrin / Bullitt soundtrack (coloured vinyl)

Regularly shown on late night ITV in Britain in the late ’70s and 1980s, Bullitt is famous for both its San Francisco car chase and the jazz-inspired score of Lalo Schifrin. This is a classic and a no-brainer for £16 in the UK and pressed on orange vinyl. Read more


The Feeling / Twelve Stops And Home limited edition 2LP yellow vinyl

The Feeling / Twelve Stops And Home (reissue)

Twelfth (geddit?) anniversary reissue for The Feeling‘s debut album. Options are a four-disc super deluxe edition and a double yellow vinyl set. Both feature newly remastered audio. Read more


Chicago / Chicago II: Live on Soundstage

A five-disc collectors’ edition of Chicago II is coming at the end of August and includes this performance (recorded at WTTW-TV studios in Chicago) from 2017 of the whole double album in full. But you can get it early this week as a standalone release. Physical options are CD+DVD (with a 5.1 mix) and CD only.

    A quick note to those of you who like buying stuff from swiss merchant Dodax, either via one of their own websites or from Amazon-marketplaces: According to a swiss newspaper-article they might have to declare bankruptcy in the next days. So it might be a good idea to not order stuff from them at the moment.

    • Neil says:

      I bought a CD from them that was supposed to have been sent out on the 8th June and there is still no sign of it. I’m putting my claim in on monday and i better get my money back.

  2. Joseph Bartram says:

    flaming lips are really going for it with this reissue campaign!

  3. Mathew Lauren says:

    Still having trouble with the G ‘n R ask. Ridiculous pricing. I just can’t do it, despite my means. Maybe there will be a 3 for 2 SDE offer soon and I’ll pick up Rush “AFTK” 40e, A.P. “Eye…” and G ‘n R “Apetite…” boxsets, then. Otherwise, the wait for individual, SDE-boxset sales, and stand-alone, “hires,” 5.1 Blu-ray Disc releases of these titles, continues.

  4. Mathew Lauren says:

    I’d like to see some (Paul Rodgers’) original-album “hires” 5.1 remixes (from original, analogue master-tapes) of Free and Bad Company. This solo (P.R.) 5.1 Blu-ray Disc is a start.

  5. Chris S says:

    Even “Trademark of Quality” Bad Company bootlegs had better graphics then the Paul Rogers album……Ugh.

  6. Neil O says:

    Also out this Friday is Ascension by A Flock Of Seagulls, re-recordings of a lot of their best material, now accompanied by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

    • Neil says:

      It’s not out till the 6th July. There is a 5 CD box set for sale on their site in a similar vein to the Visage one £45 is too steep for me though.

  7. RJS says:

    Film Score Monthly released a limited edition CD of the Bullitt soundtrack in 2009. It features the music that was re-recorded for the commercial release (and what appears on this latest vinyl reissue) and the original music that features in the film, alongside some extra cues and passages that were not re-recorded. A cool 31 track addition to any soundtrack aficionado’s collection.

  8. Sami says:

    And I would also like to mention that Bruce Dickinson – Scream For Me Sarajevo documentary is out on friday. The documentary is released on bluray and dvd, and also the soundtrack is out on cd and vinyl.
    At last as I had been waiting so long to see this documetary, it’s really interesting story of Bruce going to Sarajevo doing a show in middle of war in 1994.
    Check out the info on the release here: https://www.screamformesarajevo.com/

  9. Dani77 says:

    …and Procol Harum: Grand Hotel (CD+DVD), Exotic Birds & Fruit (3CD), The Prodigal Strangers (1CD) re-mastered and expanded editions.

  10. DaveM says:

    Also out from Esoteric on CD are expanded versions of Procol Harum’s Grand Hotel, Exotic Birds & Fruit and The Prodigal Stranger.
