Out This Week / on 8 June 2018

Eric Clapton / Life in 12 Bars (2CD or 4LP vinyl)

Impressive 32-track compilation that includes selections from many of the acts Eric Clapton worked with, including The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream, The Beatles (!), and Blind Faith. Features five previously unreleased tracks/versions – including a full length I Shot The Sheriff – and a couple of previously unreleased alternative mixes. Read more


Black Box Recorder / Life Is Unfair (4CD+DVD)

Five-disc summary of the work of Luke Haines ‘side project’ Black Box Recorder which featured John Moore and Sarah Nixey. Not quite totally complete (due to pesky licensing issues) but this is a quality package with all three albums (England Made Me is probably as good as anything Haines has his name to) a rarities disc (with two unreleased songs) and a DVD. Booklet features three essays by the individual band members and this box comes with a poster. There WILL be a vinyl version, apparently, but not until later this year. Read more


The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Some may cry ‘sacrilege’, but this album pairs original vocal performances from Beach Boys classics with new symphonic arrangements is actually not bad at all. The cover is awful though. Read more


Mansun / Attack of the Grey Lantern (3CD+blu-ray)

Four disc super deluxe of Mansun‘s 1997 debut includes the remastered album, a disc of BBC sessions; a CD full of outtakes, demos and sessions; and a (region free/NTSC) DVD with a new 5.1 surround mix and promo videos.

Tony Hadley / Talking To The Moon 

Whether by design or coincidence, Tony Hadley releases his new album on the week that Spandau Ballet unveil their new singer. Talking to the Moon is being sold as a ‘proper’ album, not a jazz/swing, covers or Christmas record, which rather defines Hadley’s output over the last few decades.

    They must not have had access to the first two Ronson solo albums. None of those amazing tracks are included, only a few of the less accomplished but still good Woodstock era recordings. A shame.

  2. Andy B says:

    Hi Paul. No mention of Johns Foxx’s 3 CD Metamatic reissue from last Friday. It includes plenty of unreleased and rare tracks. Comes in a clam shell box with booklet and art prints. Very nice it is too. I managed to bag a signed copy from Townsend Records!

  3. RJS says:

    Just about to throw out the jiffy bag that my BBR box set came in and a found a freebie – a promo copy of the second album by Wolverhampton heavy rock duo God Damn.

  4. RJS says:

    I received my BBR box set today. A nice little compact box with seperate liner notes from all three members.

  5. Dibbsy says:

    Not advertised anywhere that I’ve seen, even in store, but HMV are selling both The 1975’s LP’s together for £19.75 (geddit!?). It’s a great deal as the price to buy both albums individually is 55 quid.

  6. J says:

    For fans of Southern Music there is also a release (remastered) of the band Cowboy. Just got mine and it is excellent!! I got the Boyer Talton disc w/bonus stuff

    Exactly Timothy Harrison ‘Whomanfoursays’ by Lisa is a masterpiece to which he contributed layers, spirit and production. Why excluded…?

  8. Cliff says:

    The price difference for the Ronno vinyl between US and UK is shocking.

    Really p*sses me off!!!

    • Paul Spurgeon says:

      Ive preordered the exclusive red vinyl version.
      About £35 which is expensive but hey it’s ronno. Also it’s signed but I have no idea who it is as doesn’t specify!

    I’m tempted by the Mansun deluxe.

    But…there is this one

    2010
    http://amzn.eu/4ROyOGa

    New set

    Also here
    https://burningshed.com/store/kscope/mansun_attack-of-the-grey-lantern_boxset

    I’m not such a Mansun devoted fan.
    But it seems to me the new set lacks many tracks…b-sides?

    Could someone share light abouth this?

    • Simon says:

      gogandmagog,

      The 2010 deluxe has most if not all of the B-Sides and some acoustic and live tracks while the 2018 version has demo and session tracks. Without doing a proper camparison, I think apart from the original album there is not too much repetition.

    • Robert Atkin says:

      I and a few others did mention on the Mansun FB pages about the lack of the b sides. Paul Draper did respond to my comment and mentioned that the new version does include the booklet which he helped in collaborating. The new version does include a 5.1 plus demos and radio sessions. As I already have the three disc collectors edition already, I am not fussed about no b sides in the new edition. I am more concerned that when Six is re-released, that it will not include any b sides either.

  10. Tracey Spivey says:

    The Charlatans’ record was excellent. Looking forward to hearing the e.p.

  11. Greg says:

    Looking forward to the Mansun release! That’s one of my all-time favourite albums!!

    • WILLIAM ENGLAND says:

      here! hear!
      Always loved that if you put the cd on “repeat all” the end and the beginning were (almost) seamless…

  12. Timothy Harrison says:

    Shame the Mick Ronson has none of his collaborations with Lisa Dabello…

    • Paul Murphy says:

      Or the stunning ‘Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’ from Dylan’s Waterbury 11 November 1975 concert [or even the already-released ‘Maggie’s Farm’ from ‘Hard Rain’]. But it’s still a superb set of songs, and I’m really looking forward to having these performances in one place.
