Demon Music’s deluxe editions of the output of British indie rockers The Wedding Present have been long in the planning and are finally due for release in October 2014.

Fans will surely agree it’s been worth the wait since each of the eight albums reissued (including compilations Tommy and Hit Parade and the 6-track EP Mini) will be a offered as very generous 3CD+DVD editions. Each set will include a host of additional material including B-sides, demos, radio sessions and live tracks. The DVDs each have promo videos, TV appearances and more. These are presented in Demon’s favoured casebound book packaging.

FIRST PICTURES: Suzanne Vega / Close-Up Series box set

front_main

Suzanne Vega’s new Close-Up Series “box set” is out next week and we’ve had an early look (and listen!).

For the uninitiated, since 2008 Vega has been re-recording her back catalogue and creating volumes of ‘themed’ collections. Artistically speaking, this has allowed her to revisit and rework her material (stripping the ‘eighties’ production out of many songs) as well as having the unspoken financial attraction of meaning she owns the master recordings for all these songs.

David Bowie / Sound + Vision box

bowie_soundandvision

David Bowie’s classic Sound + Vision box is being re-released in September.

The set was originally compiled by Rykodisc in 1989 as a launchpad for their Sound + Vision reissue campaign. That version contained three CDs of material spanning 1969-1980 as well as a now defunct CD-Video that had the promo to Ashes To Ashes and some exclusive live audio.

“Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?” – Parcelforce fees

Japanese music releases have always had a great appeal to collectors. There are many reasons for this, including the historical practise of adding ‘Japan-only’ bonus tracks, the sheer coolness of the OBI-strip, and the attention to detail when it comes to packaging (and often mastering).

Deal Alert / Paul McCartney: RAM 5-disc super deluxe box

buy5ram_deal

Good though the new Venus and Mars and Speed of Sound Wings sets look, if you haven’t bought the RAM deluxe box, you should probably make that a priority!

Despite the let’s-create-a-library extravagance of Wings Over America, the RAM box is better. For a start RAM is one of Paul’s very best post-Beatles records, and the deluxe set is simply very cute, has great content across the five (not three!) discs and is full of cool ‘facsimile’ memorabilia, photos and the all important ‘book of sheep’… The quality of the packaging is really first rate. If you want to take a look at some photos click here.
