Def Leppard / CD and vinyl box sets
A pair of new Def Leppard albums box sets out on Friday – on CD and vinyl – which contains the band’s eighties output: their first four albums, Live at the LA Forum 1983 and a disc of rarities.
The Creation / Creation Theory (limited coloured 4LP vinyl box)
Very cool vinyl box featuring The Creation. 500-only and it features four albums spanning the group’s rather haphazard career. Still some available.
Jethro Tull / 50 for 50 (3CD set)
An Ian Anderson curated 50th anniversary ‘best of’ that, as the title suggests, includes 50 songs from Jethro Tull’s rich back catalogue.
Madonna / The Immaculate Collection (2LP vinyl)
The Flaming Lips / Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (3CD and vinyl)
New Flaming Lips greatest hits. The triple CD deluxe is really the format to go for with 52 tracks including B-sides, outtakes and previously unreleased. By comparison, the vinyl only has 11 songs!
Roger Daltrey / As Long As I Have You
Roger Daltrey‘s ninth solo album has been produced by Dave Eringa. Guest musicians include The Style Council‘s Mick Talbot and the songs include self-penned numbers and some notable covers, including Nick Cave’s Into My Arms, You Haven’t Done Nothing by Stevie Wonder and Stephen Stills’ How Far.
Damien Rice / O (2LP vinyl)
First time on vinyl for Damien Rice‘s 2002 debut album. This double black vinyl package features a gatefold sleeve and two printed inners.
Various Artists / Eighties Alternative (2LP vinyl)
Dawn of the Dead soundtrack reissue (various formats)
A reinterpretation of Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin‘s score for George Romero’s 1978 cult horror zombie flick Dawn Of The Dead is being issued as a highly limited fan bundle and on coloured vinyl and CD.
Neko Case / Hell-On (new album)
Neko Case‘s seventh studio solo album follows the case/lang/veirs project of 2016..
ZZ Top / Cinco No. 2: The Second Five LPs
Cinco No. 2: The Second Five LPs is a follow-up to last year’s ZZ Top box set, The First Five LPs box and features five albums recorded between 1979 and 1990, including Eliminator and Afterburner.
Paul Simon / The Remixes (CD and vinyl)
Possibly the worst idea EVER in the history of recorded music, Paul Simon has decided let a load of ‘modern’ remixes loose on his 1986 album Graceland. It sounds even worse than you can possibly imagine.
