    Uh-oh, there’s no mention of the most important CD of the year (in my opinion) Chuck Berry!

  2. Auntie Sabrina says:

    £9,99 for the Glenn Campbell CD and it’s worth every penny

      Glen’s voice always takes me back to my Sixties childhood,while turning me inside out with nostalgic yearning. The fact that I discovered in my teens he played in studio sessions for The Monkees, makes him a bona-fide, all-time hero.
      Buy.

    Cigarettes after Sex is also out on Friday (all manner of bundles are available)

    I have the Wendy and Lisa original 2-CD box and I’m really happy to see them get reissued with even more tracks..! It’s my fave album of theirs. Thanks for letting me know!

    • DJ Salinger says:

      Likewise I got the 2-disc original ‘Eroica’, and I still think it was their best outing. I’m glad I made the effort to see them for that tour at the T&C Club in London. Ridiculously good live they were, too.

      Pity there’s no live tracks on the new Special Edition, but it’s otherwise a good round-up of their final hurrah on Virgin.

  5. That Wendy and Lisa album was quite good as I remember.

  6. John Barleycorn says:

    According to Amazon the American Epic release is £9.99 and the MP3 is £16.99.
    Since when did the physical product cost less than the download version? Did I miss a meeting, Paul?

    • Danny says:

      It’s been that way for ages. I don’t agree with it per se, but the download does include server and bandwidth costs. Paul can probably give a more definitive answer… ;)

  7. Neil says:

    Wendy and Lisa is only £9.99 at base.com with free postage also Purple Rain deluxe is only £19.99 on there as well.

    American Epic Sessions, I saw the episode relating to this release 18 months ago and can highly recommend this documentary to anyone who has an interested in how Music was recorded, especially back in the 1920s. Fascinating stuff and brilliant performances. Delighted the music from the documentary is finally released.

    lucky enough to already have the Buckingham/McVie album in my possession and on first listen i was thinking…if this was a new FM album i would have been sorely disappointed

  10. Larry Davis says:

    The 3 tracks I heard on the Buckingham McVie so far?? Brilliant pop…and as this IS a new Fleetwood Mac album basically (Mick & John are on it completely, and the last FM album (“Say You Will”) was also a 4-piece album, with Stevie in place of Chris…I know I know Chris didn’t rejoin the band then…but you get my point…again, this is killer pop stuff. Another missed title, the new Katy Perry, “Witness”…

    • Neil says:

      Why would anybody who reads this site be interested in a new Katy Perry album ???

    • Roger says:

      I just bought the new Buckingham mcvie album. Warning to anyone NO booklet is include. The middle is sealed down along with the front cover. The CD is in the back.

      Target here in US has it for sale for $9.99

  11. Larry Davis says:

    Why not?? She is collectible and a good pop artist. You could not say the same about 3rd Eye Blind (a just OK powerpop band really, very popular in the USA mainstream, not this type of audience into culty artists and fringe punk/new wave bands)…why bring them up?? Glen Campbell…highly revered now by cult audiences and at the end of his life…he was once viewed as the epitome of UNcool in the 70s and 80s and 90s…only when he was rediscovered by cult pop and punk artists and talk of how great he actually is, ONLY THEN has it been fine to like him openly. I think it’s totally fine to like Katy Perry’s music openly…she’s like a straight American female equivalent of someone like George Michael. Why not??

  12. C-J says:

    Fans of The Black Crowes might be interested in The Magpie Salute album coming out this week, featuring Rich Robinson, Marc Ford, Sven Pipien, and the last recordings of the late great Eddie Harsch.

  13. Neil says:

    What’s up with that Wendy & Lisa i just got an email from base saying that they won’t ever be getting it in stock i then checked Cherry Reds website and it has sold out there already amazon are also stating Usually dispatched within 1 to 4 weeks.

  14. ant says:

    Eroica just arrived. A perfect reissue soundwise, written content and visual. One of W&L best albums (along with self titled and WFOWC) and the sound quality is good, nice ‘n’ loud, it is hot to the ceiling -0.1 but no blue rectangles ;-)
