Out This Week / on 15 April 2016
Metallica / Kill ‘Em All & Ride The Lightning box sets
These new reissues of Metallica‘s first two albums are like XTC reissues in Led Zeppelin clothing. Although price-wise these are more expensive than the latter, they offer far better value.
Phil Collins / No Jacket Required (2CD deluxe)
Phil Collins continues with his reissue series. This week No Jacket Required and Testify are re-released as deluxe editions. Such is the perversity of the track listings of the former that one can only hope some kind of remix compilation is in the planning.
Robert Palmer / 5 Classic Albums (5CD box set)
Robert Palmer was a singer of supreme talent and a brilliant interpreter of other people’s material. He could also pen a good tune himself and this great value five-album selection from his Island Years should convince any neutrals that he was the real deal.

English rock band Foghat see all their 13 long-players released between 1972 and 1983 newly remastered and collected in a clamshell box set.
