Out This Week / 2 February 2015
The Go-Betweens / G Stands For Go-Betweens (box)
The final stock of Domino Record’s lavish 8-disc Go Betweens box is dwindling fast. It’s already over £200 in the UK, so Amazon Canada might be the last chance to grab this with a sensible price tag.
Bob Dylan / Shadows in the Night (new album)
Dylan‘s 36th studio album sees him ‘uncover’ a selection of standards with his five-piece band and a live-in-the-studio, no overdubs ethos.
OMD / Junk Culture (deluxe edition)
The 1984 OMD album which features the hits Locomotion, Talking Loud and Clear and Tesla Girls gets the two-CD deluxe treatment. Early reports suggest numerous errors on this set, so proceed with caution.
Rick Wakeman / CD+DVD reissues
Two classic reissues from the keyboard wizard. The Six Wives of Henry VIII and …King Arthur… both come with DVD-Audio/Video hybrid discs featuring the original surround quad mixes.
Hans Zimmer / Interstellar: Illuminated Projection Box
Sublime Hans Zimmer soundtrack to Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, finally available outside the USA in deluxe box set form with a bonus disc featuring exclusive cues from the film.
Various Artists / ZTT: The Value of Entertainment
Highly enjoyable revisit of ZTT’s 1985 Sampled compilation, although the DVD of live ‘showcase’ concert The Value of Entertainment is the real highlight. Art of Noise‘s 2CD+DVD At The End Of A Century is also issued this week.
Belinda Carlisle/ Access All Areas (CD+DVD)
This Belinda Carlisle two-disc set is part of a new Access All Areas series from Demon Music that combines audio and video performances. Similar releases from Steve Hackett, Glen Campbell and Caravan also issued this week.
T’Pau / Pleasure & Pain (new album)
First new T’Pau studio album in 17 years sees the Decker/Rogers songwriting partnership rekindled. First single is the power ballad Nowhere.
