XTC / Oranges & Lemons (CD+Blu-ray)

The standard-setting XTC reissues continue with 1989’s Oranges & Lemons. As before this is a two-disc combo, but don’t let that fool you, there’s an unbelievable amount of content on the blu-ray including rehearsals, demos, promo videos, singles mixes, instrumentals, hi-res 5.1 and more! Read more

Erasure/ Always: The Very Best Of

This new Erasure hits collection is available as a triple-disc set which adds hardcover book packaging and adds two CDs of new and ‘classic’ remixes. Read more


Rod Stewart / Another Country (deluxe)

Rod Stewart‘s 29th studio album Another Country is his second in a row to feature self-penned material. The deluxe CD adds five bonus tracks including (bizarrely) In a Broken Dream, the 1969 Python Lee Jackson track that features Rod’s vocals. It is now cheekily credited as Rod Stewart ‘featuring’ Python Lee Jackson!


Elvis with the Royal Philharmonic / If I Can Dream

Rather dubious project that puts classic Elvis vocal performances with brand-new orchestral accompaniment. If that wasn’t bad enough, Michael Bublé features on Fever.


Guy Garvey  / Courting The Squall (signed vinyl edition)

The Elbow frontman releases his first solo album. This signed vinyl edition is exclusive to Amazon UK.

    It seems bizarre that nobody has mentionned the THRAK box set by King Crimson

    This is the annual mega box set including 16 Discs.

  3. Neil says:

    Still no track listings for Oranges & Lemons yet. I wonder if the mixes of King For A Day will be on it.

  4. Rob says:

    There are three remixes of “King For a Day” on the Blu-ray. The Czar Mix, The Versailles Mix and the 12″ mix.

  5. Pumfrey says:

    The Jam boxset has dropped in price on Amazon from £64 to £56.

  6. Pumfrey says:

    Any news on whether UK retailers will be stocking The Flaming Lips Heady Nuggs Clouds Taste Metallic and Placebo Unplugged outside of both band’s websites?

  7. DaveM says:

    Pumfrey, the vinyl Flaming Lips Heady Nuggs is on Amazon.co.uk but no CD version as yet. I would like to know if Clouds is remastered..

    • Pumfrey says:

      Yeah I’ve noticed the vinyl but no CD version anywhere to be seen. I don’t think its a remaster just a deluxe version with EP and live tracks.

  8. DaveM says:

    Pumfrey, thanks. Well if there is no remaster of Clouds I’ve got the (excellent) Providing Needles EP so really will only be buying for the other extra tracks then. Kind of makes it less exciting.

  9. Stevo says:

    ‘Those UK prog rockers Octopus…’
    Surely you jest?

  10. Wayne Klein says:

    Evidently there’s an issue with Sony and some other Blu-Ray players that need updated firmware to address a problem with the XTC release for the BD.

    While I haven’t experience the problem (and I have a Sony Bd but I haven’t upgraded the firmware in a while), the label is aware of the problem as is Sony who are working on a fix so be patient and don’t hit the label with millions of emails–it’s not their fault and the authoring was up to spec.
