The Rolling Stones in played in Cuba in March this year and the audio and video (directed by Paul Dugdale) will be issued as Havana Moon across a multitude of formats…
The free show was filmed in high-definition and attracted enormous crowds with the band performing the usual hit-packed set.
Havana Moon is an Eagle Rock product which means more formats than you can shake a stick at. Putting vinyl to one side, SDE’s recommendation is to pick up the 60-page hardback book deluxe edition which contains two CDs, Blu-ray, and DVD. It’s £44 in the UK at the moment but only £25 in Germany, so consider that a deal alert! Incidentally that’s less than half the US price for the same set. [update: Amazon DE seemed to have removed that earlier, cheap listing].
You can get a 2CD+DVD in a CD-sized digipack, although that makes a mockery of having the concert filmed in high-definition. Vinyl fans will need to opt for the DVD+3LP but the same situation applies. Annoyingly – if you don’t live in America – the US get a 2CD+Blu-ray combo pack. I can’t understand why they don’t issue those in the UK/Europe. The saving grace is that the deluxe in Germany works out to be around the same price. All blu-rays/DVDs will be region free.
Havana Moon is released on 11 of November 2016.
