Out This Week / 27 Nov 2015
Primal Scream / Screamadelica (4CD)
A well rounded, and now affordable, multi-disc deluxe set of the classic Primal Scream album Screamadelica. This comes with a disc of remixes, a live performance CD and the Dixie-Narco EP.
Jethro Tull / Too Old To Rock ‘n’ Roll: Too Young to Die!
Tull‘s 1976 album gets the four-disc anniversary treatment with stereo / 5.1 remixes by Steven Wilson, the original TV broadcast on DVD and much more.
Lush / Chorus (5CD)
This attractively designed (and affordable) Lush box set follows the evolution of the band’s sound via their three studio albums, compilations, EPs and unreleased demos, radio sessions, remixes and rarities. 105 tracks in total!
Lush / Ciao! Best of Lush
If 105 tracks of Lush is just too much for you, and a turntable takes pride of place in your ‘music room’, then you could opt for this desirable double red vinyl pressing of 2001 compilation Ciao! Best of Lush (previously unavailable on the format)
Edith Piaf / Integrale (20CD)
Massive 100th anniversary Edith Piaf set which is limited to 10,000 copies. The 350-track box set has been remastered using original vinyl pressings and master tapes.
Carly Simon / Songs from the Trees
New Carly Simon hits collection to tie in with her Boys in the Trees memoir. Songs from the Trees sees 31 tracks (all newly remastered) spread across two discs including two new tracks, one of which, Showdown, was originally recorded during the sessions for her 1978’s Boys in the Trees album.

Supergrass / I Should Coco (3CD deluxe)
Originally expected ‘before the summer’ of 2015, Supergrass‘ fine 1995 debut I Should Coco was eventually reissued in early September, although only the vinyl version actually came out. Constant delays with this three-CD deluxe have diluted the 20th anniversary celebrations somewhat, but *fingers crossed* it will finally be available this week.
Manic Street Preachers / The Holy Bible (vinyl reissue)
The Manics‘ 1994 opus on vinyl was once a rarity, but this album-only reissue on 180g LP will be the fourth outing in a year on the format, following on from the excellent 20th anniversary box set of last December and the two picture discs (UK and US variants) in April’s Record Store Day.
New Order / Music Complete (8LP box set)
Box sets sold exclusively via band websites normally end up on Amazon (and other channels) once the band mailing list has been marketed to and exhausted. New Order‘s Music Complete vinyl extravaganza is a case in point, since it’s now shipping from various Amazons across Europe. In particular, if you’re outside the EU this makes a lot of sense. VAT will be deducted from the price and shipping is much more competitive than the New Order online store.
George Michael / Freedom! ’90 (12″ pic disc)
Although the track selection fails to excite, release-starved George Michael fans will still probably welcome this Black Friday limited edition 12-inch picture disc of ‘the fast one’ from 1990’s Listen Without Prejudice.
The Jam / About The Young Idea
The Jam‘s career charting About The Young Idea is available as a blu-ray+CD or a deluxe CD+2DVD+Book edition.
Europe / War of Kings Special Edition
This second set of deluxe editions of Europe‘s War of Kings is either music marketing at its worst, or a welcome opportunity to see the band perform live a the Wacken Air Festival on blu-ray/DVD. You decide...
Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson / Say Say Say 12″
Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson‘s US number one is reissued on clear 12-inch vinyl for Black Friday with a remastered version of the Jellybean instrumental on the B-side.
The Sisters of Mercy / Floodland vinyl box
Delayed for a few weeks, this Sisters of Mercy box delivers the Floodland album and related 12-inch singles, across four vinyl records.
Mark Lanegan / One Way Street
Pushed back from last week, the first five solo albums by former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan are now available in this classy five-LP vinyl box set.
Johnny Cash / Live in Denmark 1971
Johnny Cash‘s Live in Denmark released on CD for the first time and as a special 2LP red vinyl pressing for Black Friday.
