Reissues and releases

Various Artists / NOW 12" 80s: 1980 CD

A new NOW series compiling extended remixes kicks of with a focus on 1980.

Brian May & Friends / Star Fleet Project

Star Fleet Project was a 3-track mini-album from 1983 by ‘Brian May and Friends’. Those ‘friends’ were guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alan Gratzer (then of REO Speedwagon), bassist Phil Chen (who played with Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart), and Fred Mandel (keyboard player for Alice Cooper who’d worked on player on Queen’s Hot Space Tour and The Works).

For this 40th anniversary reissue, the music has been newly remixed. The vinyl edition features the same three tracks while the CD (“Star Fleet + Beyond”) appends interviews and live numbers. A box set edition offers coloured vinyl, seven-inch single and two CDs with the latter offering “The Complete Sessions”: which is all of the previously unreleased studio sessions. There is actually a 2CD version which offers the complete sessions as well, but it’s only being released in Japan! That logo is everywhere, as usual.

Marillion / Seasons End (2023 Remix)

Standalone CD and vinyl editions of Marillion’s 1989 album Seasons End are released this week with both featuring the new stereo remix by Michael Hunter which were first issued on the box sets released back in May. The vinyl edition is a 2LP set.
