The Allman Brothers Band and Commodores ‘Collected’ coloured vinyl

Limited coloured vinyl compilations • 2LP sets with rarities

SDE has in the past described Universal Music Netherlands’ Collected career summaries as one of the best kept secrets in pop/rock compilations. The triple-CD sets are normally very, very good indeed and while Music On Vinyl’s double vinyl editions can’t quite match the track quantity and depth of their CD cousins, they are still worth picking up, especially in limited edition coloured vinyl guise. Two new titles come to double vinyl later this month, The Allman Brothers Band and the Commodores.

Review / Johnny Hates Jazz: Turn Back The Clock 30th anniversary reissue

SDE editor Paul Sinclair reflects on a fine album, the career that could have been and assesses the new reissue

There’s that old adage that if you can’t knock out a song on an acoustic guitar or plonk out the chords on a piano, then it’s probably not very good. I’m not sure I totally agree with it – The Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’ probably doesn’t lend itself to such treatment, and is still a great track – but Johnny Hates Jazz have decided to put the ten songs on their 1988 debut to this test by including an acoustic version of the entire album as one of the bonus CDs in the recent 30th anniversary reissue of their debut Turn Back The Clock (the other disc is the more traditional mix of extended versions, B-sides and demos).
