News: Prince 1999 super-deluxe edition

12 09 2019

Prince’s 1999, his fifth studio album, is being given the expanded deluxe edition treatment, with a lavish super-deluxe edition.

The remastered album, which was originally released in 1982, also includes single / promo edits, two discs of unreleased material from Prince’s legendary vault, and two live performances (one audio and one on DVD).

Watch 1999 from the DVD below. Bear in mind that this is a recording from late 1982, so will not be up to current visual standards, but the performance is still electrifying.

News: David Bowie – Conversation Piece 5 cd box-set & Space Oddity 2019 mix CD / vinyl

5 09 2019

The David Bowie website released details today of a new 5 CD box-set – David Bowie Conversation Piece, which collects together home demos, BBC radio sessions and studio recordings from 1968 and 1969, and also includes a new 2019 Tony Visconti mix of the David Bowie (aka Space Oddity) album, which is also available to buy separately from the box-set, on CD & vinyl.

Visconti had this to say about the 2019 Space Oddity album mix “It was so much fun to find hidden gems of musicianship with more time to mix the second time around, a guitar twiddle here, a trombone blast there, Marc Bolan’s voice in a group choir and more detail in general that we overlooked all those years ago when the label gave us a week at the most to mix this album. And in the details you will find 22 year old David Bowie, who would soon take the world by storm.”

The Space Oddity album (2019 mixes)

  • Space Oddity (5.20)
  • Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed (6.18)
  • Letter To Hermione (2.32)
  • Cygnet Committee (9.28)
  • Janine (3.21)
  • An Occasional Dream (2.57)
  • Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud (4.50)
  • Conversation Piece (3.11)
  • God Knows I’m Good (3.16)
  • Memory Of A Free Festival (7.14)

Released on November 15, 2019.

News: Sutherland Brothers & Quiver box-set

5 09 2019

Cherry red are releasing an 8 CD Sutherland Brothers & Quiver box-set on September 27 2019. The 103 track box set covers all of the releases by Sutherland Brothers & Quiver during the period 1971-79, for both Island and CBS Records.

The box-set includes their most well-known song Arms Of Mary, as well as Sailing (which became a huge hit for Rod Stewart in 1975) and 1975’s Reach For The Sky album, which featured Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour on one track.

The box-set consists of:

  • Sutherland Brothers – produced by Muff Winwood
  • Lifeboat – which includes seven bonus tracks, four taken from the USA version of the album. Also included is the track Sailing which though not a hit for the band, gave Rod Stewart an international chart topper
  • Dream Kid which includes a non-album cut as a bonus
  • Beat Of The Street includes two non-album cuts
  • Reach For The Sky – featuring the hit single Arms Of Mary which reached No. 5 in the UK, No. 17 in Germany and the top spot in both Holland and Ireland. Two non-LP tracks have been added as a bonus, and Dave Gilmour guests on the track Ain’t Too Proud
  • Slipstream – from 1976 which includes the UK hit single Secrets
  • Down To Earth – featuring six non-LP bonus tracks including rare tracks from the USA version of the album
  • When The Night Comes Down – which features the No.50 UK hit single Easy Come Easy Go.

News: The Jam – Snap! 2019 heavyweight vinyl reissue

1 08 2019

The Jam are re-issuing their long out-of-print vinyl compilation Snap! in October, for the first time on heavyweight vinyl.

Snap! is my favourite compilation from The Jam, and is made up of a mix of singles, b sides and album tracks. Released by UMC / Polydor on 25 October 2019, the double vinyl also includes a 7″ single containing live tracks.

The 2019 re-issue of Snap! is housed in a gatefold sleeve, with original artwork, printed inner sleeves and the original ‘free’ live 7” EP.

This 2019 version has been remastered at Abbey Road, and for the first time is available on heavyweight vinyl, with a download card (well-done record label – this always helps sway me towards a vinyl release).
