Elektra To Release 4CD/DVD/LP 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Love Classic, Forever Changes

In the late ’60s, a wealth of sounds and thoughts were swirling in the growing world of Rock and Roll and its listeners. The preoccupation with the Vietnam War, the need to expand consciousness beyond the scope of our boring three-dimensional interaction with reality, and the questions that new immersions in philosophy and concept would create (and never answer), as well as the need to shape our world through politics, were paramount to the times. Many band emerged in the US to ask those questions and to seek impossible answers. One of those were Arthur Lee’s Love.

Love was great in that they were willing to incorporate styles to make a great hybrid of music. One of their great classics is Forever Changes from 1967. In 2015, the album was newly remastered and presented to appreciative audiences. However, with the arrival of he album’s 50th Anniversary, Elektra Records has done the album extreme justice with a celebrating 4CD/DVD/LP 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.

On April 6, you will be able to acquire the definitive set of this classic for your Love library, if you consider yourself one of the fans of the band willing to shell out the sum required.

For this set, the first CD will present the original album, with CD2 providing an alternate MONO mix of the original album, CD3 offering a collection of previously released alternate mixes, and CD4 providing a selected set of singles, demos, and outtakes, most previously heard from the 40th Anniversary Edition of Forever Changes.

The DVD contains 96kHz/24-bit hi resolution mixes of the original album plus a video of “Your Mind And We Belong Together”. Finally, the vinyl LP offers the original album with the 2015 remaster.

A 12″ by 12″ hardbound book separates this massive reissue endeavor with a bunch of great photos, notes, essays, credits, and other insights.

This classic 1967 album beautifully captures the state of music back in the incredible period of the late ’60s.  It’s just an awesome album that deserves better attention than it (or the band) gets!

 

New Debut Album by Mien (The Black Angels/Elephant Stone/Earlies/The Horrors Collaboration)

Psychedelic Rock has made a resurgence in popularity over these past few years. There are, of course, plenty of Rock bands currently revisiting that ancient but much loved genre from back in the late ’60s. Often, they help to broaden the sound and heighten the experience. There are even festivals put together to showcase many of them in a single locale.

One of those bands is a personal favorite of mine, The Black Angels. Their last release was the excellent Death Song, issued in 2017. But they’re not alone in this genre. You merely have to put in a search term into Google to be rewarded with a wealth of experimentation. (I suggest it!)

As bands take a bit of time off from their recent releases and after the touring has died down, some of the more restless seek other means of output. Alex Maas (The Black Angels) has teamed with Tom Furse (The Horrors), Rishi Dhir (Elephone Stone), and John-Mark Lapham (The Earlies) have started an interim band being called Mien, a word which means ‘a person’s look or manner, a particular kind indicating their character or mood’.

Mien has recorded an album, with just Mien as the go to reference for the title. The new album is scheduled for release by Rocket Recordings on April 6. Mien is planned for issue on CD (housed in a gatefold mini-LP styled jacket, with booklet enclosed), hi-quality FLAC, ALAC (Apple Lossless), AAC, Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV, and AIFF digital format, and split RED and transparent ORANGE vinyl LP.

For more information of to keep track, go to their Bandcamp page (to pre-order), or to their Facebook page. Their website (with store for CD and LP, tee bundles) is here.

Marillion Classic 1994 Brave Gets Remixed 4CD/BD, 5LP Deluxe Editions

Fans of Marillion have Steven Wilson in their corner. Remixing classic album tracks not only breathe brand new life into old recordings, it also provides his penchant for 5.1 Surround mixes. To me, a remix is better than remastering. I am often jealous of those bands that have Wilson’s attention. I just hope he expands to more bands including some that I have  extraordinary love for (Wishbone Ash’s Argus, and others!)

On March 9, watch for the Marillion 1994 classic, Brave. Continuing with upgrades to the Marillion library (Misplaced Childhood reissued in 2017), Rhino/Parlophone will provide a 4CD/BD set as well as a 5LP Box.

The 4CD/BD Box will provide a CD featuring the 2018 Steven Wilson Stereo remix, a CD with the original 1994 master of the album, and two CDs with a complete April 29, 1994 live set at La Cigale in Paris. The Blu-ray Disc (BD) will provide plenty of hi-res and visual goods. A richly designed book will accompany the set.

Led Zeppelin Reissues How The West Was Won on 3CD, 4LP, BD Sets and Deluxe Edition Box

A bit of “old” How The West Was Run Led Zeppelin Live album news already with every outlet pushing this knowledge out the airplane window (JUMP!).  I’m passing it along as a courtesy to those that might not have seen it yet.

The 2003 Led Zeppelin live set originally released via Atlantic Records as a CD set and as a DVD-Audio set is currently remastered and set for reissue on March 23. This reissue will update this classic title with vinyl LPs, BD-Audio, and a massive Super Deluxe Edition with 3CD/4LP/DVD. The Box will also include the inevitable book filled with photos, notes and writeups, credits, and more.

The shows that make up the discs are the band’s LA area sets on their Houses Of The Holy tour. The songs were selected from their LA Forum set (June 25, 1972), and their Long Beach Arena set (June 27, 1972).

For this reissue, the tapes have been remastered. They are also presented in 5.1 Surround for the Blu-ray Audio playback, which will provide DTS-Master Audio for both the 5.1 and Stereo versions, and hi-res Stereo. These are given as 96kHz/24-bit tracks.

The 4LP set feature 180g-weight vinyl.

 

Massive 2CD/2DVD/LP Box Set For Fish Out Of Water by Chris Squire

With the release of Fragile, YES became the premier definition of Progressive Rock. With a series of successful and, in some cases, expanded, albums after Fragile (Close To The Edge is considered one of the genre’s finest creations, while Tales From Topographical Oceans is considered its heaviest), the success of Yes allowed the band certain freedoms not usually afforded to most. Individual projects.

During a period of inactivity, each member of Yes released solo works. For Chris Squire, that was Fish Out Of Water. Fish Out Of Water was well-received by fans, charting well in charts.

On April 27, Esoteric Recordings will revisit this classic 1975 solo album with a massive Limited Edition Box of the album filled to the literal brim with a wealth of material including a 5.1 remix of the album, something that Chris Squire was interested in.

The new edition of Fish Out of Water will feature a brand new remix AND remaster of the album, both desired aspects of any reissue. But this one goes even further to make Fish Out Of Water a definitive set worth owning among fans of the work.

This Box will present 2CDs, 2DVDs, a 180g-weight vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve, two 7″ vinyl singles, a fold-out poster (in the LP sleeve), and a 36-page book with new essays, uncovered photos, and plenty of information concerning this classic album.

The Stereo remix is created by Jakko Jakszyk and is found on CD1. The Stereo remaster of the album is found on CD2 along with four bonus inclusions (single mixes of “Lucky Seven” and “Silently Falling”, and two recorded songs with Alan White, “Return With The Fox”, and “Return Of The Fox”).

The included DVDs have gems as well. DVD1 presents both 5.1 and  Hi-resolution Stereo, both at 96kHz/24-bit, and both created by Jakko Jakszyk, In addition, the Paschal Byrne remastered Stereo remaster is also presented in hi-res 96kHz/24-bit clarity. DVD2 provides a collection of visual content including interviews and a Chris Squire audio commentary. The LP is as expected, and the two 7″ singles in picture sleeves. Each of the singles include the bonus tracks found  on CD2.

Personally, I love undertakings such as these that are targeted to the serious fan. Not only do we get definitive sets likely to never be matched in such detail again, but a classic revisited is always a great thing.

Enjoy, fans!

Two Classic Todd Rundgren Titles, Something/Anything and A Wizard, A True Star Planned For SACD/CD Set Updates

SACDs are certainly winding down in the industry. Once a hoped for sizable niche, the marketplace for them has diminished considerably given the practicality of DVDs (DVD-Audio), and BDs (BD-Audio). With necessary additional hardware needed to play them back, the marketplace now only has legacy owners of SACD units and pricey SACD-enabled multi-players. Because of that dwindling number, we hear of less and less. But that doesn’t mean they no longer issue. With a wealth of desirable titles out there still not converted to superior (in my estimation) SACD hi-res, it’s nice to see them trickle out. One of them is a favorite of mine, Todd Rundgren‘s excellent Something/Anything.

On January 12 of 2018, Analog Spark, a division of Concord/Universal, will reissue Something/Anything as a 2-disc package with an SACD and a CD included within a Stoughton gatefold jacket.

This will be a necessary add title for those fans of the album who still enjoy the sound quality afforded by SACD playback within your much beloved music listening arena. And of course, hearing massive radio hits “I Saw The Light”, and “Hello, It’s Me” in Super Audio splendor, as well as FM favorites, “Couldn’t I Just Tell You”, and “Wolfman Jack”.

Something/Anything is listed in Rolling Stone’s Greatest 500 Rock Albums of All Time at number 173.

Also from Analog Spark will be an SACD Hybrid reissue of A Wizard, A True Star, which is being released the same date as Something/Anything.

 

Jethro Tull Classic, Heavy Horses, Gets 3CD/2DVD 40th Anniversary “New Shoes” Edition

It’s nice to see the year of 2017 end on positive notes like we’ve had with some announcements. Normally, this a quiet time but for some reason or other, 2017 has remained somewhat lively, And with this new piece of news, it gets even more lively.

On March 2 of 2018, the next in line of album updates for the Jethro Tull band is Heavy Horses. Originally released in 1978, Heavy Horses followed up the popular Songs From The Wood (1977), with an album every bit as beautifully assembled as its predecessor. And now the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition remix of Heavy Horses naturally follows the 40th Anniversary DE of Songs From The Wood, which was released earlier in 2017.

Expected in this new reissue of Heavy Horses (called the New Shoes Edition) will be the Steven Wilson set of remixes of the original set of nine songs, which will be bolstered by the addition of nine bonus tracks (see list). The two additional CDs will provide a 22-performance track live set from a support show on May 28, 1978 at The Festhalle in Bern, Switzerland. The 2DVDs will provide the SW Stereo hi-res tracks in 96kHz/24-bit. two SW 5.1 Surround Sound remixes (DTS, DD), and a flat transfer of the original Stereo master. and three additional bonus tracks. DVD2 will present the complete May 28, 1978 Bern concert at The Festhalle on video. Closing the DVD off will be four extra videos, two music and two TV ads.

I’m sure the included 96-page book will add the value seen previously in past Jethro Tull Anniversary Editions.

3CD/DVD 45th Anniversary Edition of 1972 Roxy Music Debut Planned

For quite some time, Steven Wilson has let it be known that he had completed remix work on several classic treasures. With that, it was up to the labels involved to simply release them as packages. We’ll the good news of today is that Universal has decided to release one of those albums.

On February 2, 2018, Universal will reissue the 1972 debut album classic from Roxy Music. With this good news, we also get the package in celebration of the band’s 45th Anniversary as a Super Deluxe package.

This 45th Anniversary package will present the album in both Stereo and 5.1 Surround mixes (It’s important here to realize that the Stephen Wilson remix available will be the 5.1 Surround and NOT a Stereo remix, which is strange. SW did do a Stereo remix of Roxy Music while he had the tapes in his possession. Nevertheless, the Stereo version being released is not attributed to SW, and is an older Bob Ludwig master previously released.)

Watch for 3CDs and a DVD along with a richly contributed 136-page high gloss book. The three CDs provide the original album, a set of outtakes, demos, and a non-album single, “Virginia Plain”, which IS presented here as SW remix in Stereo.  One of the CDs will also provide several Live sets including two Peel sessions and a BBC broadcast.

The DVD provides a several videos of Old Grey Whistle Test, Full House, Royal College of Art, and Top of the Pops, and a rare club appearance. The DVD will be home to the two variations of the SW 5.1 Surround remixes (DTS 96/24, Dolby AC3).

There will be a 2CD Edition with only original album and the live sets. A vinyl LP is also in the release queue.

Enjoy!

 

Fleetwood Mac 1975 “White Album” To Be Expanded and Remastered

With the reissues of several Nicks/Buckingham-era classic albums, it was only a matter of time to get to the album that started that lineup. Their eponymous 1975 multi-platinum set that gave the world “Over My Head”, “Say You Love Me”, “Warm Ways”, and “Rhiannon” was ripe for the reissue pipeline. And while I personally love the pre-Buckingham/Nicks-era lineup better, I certainly do NOT hate this lineup.

On January 19, 2018, Rhino will release the next Fleetwood Mac reissue in several variations. Of course, the music here is newly remastered. But you will have choices with a single CD, (which features the primary album), a 2CD Expanded Edition that provides an additional four single edits on the first CD, and seventeen bonus pieces that show off the creative process of this album with embryonic early takes and versions, as well as a collection of live studio cuts.

There will be also be a Deluxe package that will deliver 3CDs, a DVD, and a vinyl LP of the original album. And a few things more for the avid Fleetwood Mac fan. This box provides the same two CDs as the Deluxe 2CD set, but will add in a CD of a collection of live tracks from three separate shows (Capitol Theatre – Passaic, NJ  10/17/1975; Jorgensen Auditorium – University of Connecticut Storrs, CT 10/25/1975; Campus Stadium – University of California 05/02/1976).

The included DVD for the Deluxe Box will contain high-quality Stereo (96kHz/24-bit) of the album’s original tracks as well as 5.1 Surround remixes. The 180g-weight black vinyl LP will be home to the original album tracks. All these will be housed in a 12″x 12″ embossed box (as seen below). The packed in book will provide photos, information and credits, memorabilia, new interview pieces, and new notes.

Several  early takes of popular songs from the album will be available individually as digital downloads or promo single streams (DD). Those are “Monday Morning (early take)” on 11/16/17, “Landslide (early version)” on 01/06/18, and “Say You Love Me (early version)” on 01/13/18.  Also, the CD and 2CD versions will be issued as DDs.

Celebratory The Purple Tour by Whitesnake To Be Released

Before David Coverdale achieved world wide fame as a major component of Whitesnake, he was a wunderkind in Deep Purple. Asked to join the band in 1973 at the age of 22, Coverdale made a great argument for replacing departed Ian Gillan. Sadly, after just three albums (Burn – 1974, Stormbringer – 1974, Come Taste The Band – 1975), Coverdale reluctantly left the band. Afterwards, he formed Whitesnake, and the rest is simple history.

On December 15, Rhino Records will revisit what is known as The Purple Tour with Whitesnake as the band. In 2015, Whitesnake released The Purple Album with selected Coverdale-era Deep Purple re-recorded tracks (six from Burn, five from Stormbringer, and two from Come Taste The Band). After the album was issued, the band went on their The Purple Tour to celebrate the Deep Purple years with Coverdale at the mic!

The Purple Tour will be released on CD, 2LP, and video combo packs, CD/DVD, and CD/BD sets. With the DVD and Blu-ray sets, there will be the concert video (in 5.1 Surround as well as Stereo), a promo video of “Burn”, an interview: On The Hot Seat with Michel Devin, and four hi-resolution tracks presented in 5.1 Surround audio.
