Out This Week / on 15 November 2019

David Bowie / Conversation Piece CD

There’s been a fair bit of Bowie grumbling this year – some of it legitimate – about the plethora of expensive vinyl sets, like The Mercury Demos. Further dismay ensued when it was clear that Parlophone has taken a break from the ‘era’ box sets, but actually the five-CD Conversation Piece, out on Friday, looks pretty good when examined in isolation. It’s effectively a super deluxe of the Space Oddity album.

INXS / Live Baby Live: Wembley Stadium CD, Vinyl

The soundtrack to INXSLive Baby Live Wembley Stadium show, on 13 July 1991, has been newly remixed and is issued on 3LP vinyl and 2CD. No DVD or blu-ray yet though, since this is being released theatrically for a period.

The Band / The Band 50th anniversary CD, Vinyl, Box Set, Blu-ray

The Band‘s self-titled second album is reissued for its 50th anniversary. Three physical editions are on offer, including a six-disc super deluxe box set with a 5.1 surround mix.

The Police / Every Move You Make: The Studio Recordings CD

While we continue to wait for a significant delve into The Police archives, this 6CD edition of the Every Move You Make: The Studio Recordings –  a box of remastered albums and a disc of bonus tracks – is welcome, especially at this price.

a-ha / Hunting High And Low 4CD set

a-ha / Hunting High And Low 4CD set CD

If you want a lesson on how to ‘explore’ an original studio album, then this super deluxe of a-ha‘s debut Hunting High And Low – newly repackaged – is it. 25 original demos, 15 period remixes, an alternate version of the album make up of ‘early versions’ of songs and then the album itself. Phenomenal and bordering on ridiculous at the sub £15 asking price!!

Two live recordings featuring Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac have been found and are being released officially on CD and vinyl as Before The Beginning 1968-1970. 



George Michael / Last Christmas soundtrack

A sneaky, but probably effective, way to get a new George Michael greatest hits into the marketplace. The CD is already out but the vinyl is due on Friday. The only place to get the new song ‘This Is How (We Want You To Get High)’ on vinyl. More thoughts on Last Christmas and the new song on last week’s Saturday Deluxe.

Just got an email from Burning Shed – Stormwatch box set delayed (again) to 29 Nov. Still, will be getting postcard (hopefully signed) when it arrives plus set of JT beer mats as way of apology. Every cloud..

I was wondering if Duncan Day is able to listen to The Sparks when it’s released? – I hope so.

Larry Davis

Just saw there is a new 2CD deluxe of Dido’s recent “Still On My Mind”, which gathers all the odd tracks in different formats & countries, all in 1 place, plus acoustic versions and more…out on Friday…in some cases this would seem ridiculous, but in this case, it’s welcome because the original rollout was frustrating with the CD & vinyl differing in one track, the Japanese having others, etc…this keeps it all together…my CD is signed so it’s now something worthy to sell…

Not a police fan, but still it’s very good value at the price.

“Out This Week” Stormwatch….Well, guys, take heart, it will be worth the wait. I had a good long listen to my copy (mine arrived mid-Oct here in the USA) over the weekend, and it is excellent..! The bonus songs and extended takes are very interesting and entertaining, esp. the long version of Orion. Ian could have made a very fine Double Album of this release back in 1979, but it didn’t work out that way. Great reading too. As always, a superb job with this SDE

David Smith

At £16.66 the Police box set must be the deal of the year so far. I think the first CDS I bought back in the 80s were £15.99 each!

Gisabun

I have the original box set which has way more bonus tracks [20+]. Excluding the odd track released commercially since then, it’s all I need. Assuming the track listing is accurate, the only thing missing for me is “Truth Hits Everybody (Remix)” and that the albums are remastered [again].

DeAn

It’s all about the Bowie for me. I’m really looking forward to the demo’s, and the remix. I just hope there’s something to read in that book, and it’s not simply a picture book. I’m also buying it now knowing that it’ll drop in price pretty quickly, I think. I can’t see it holding the current price for long.

I’m in the UK, and I pre-ordered the Tull from Amazon UK. Strangely, I received mine on the original date. I guess they had some copies, just not enough.

Dave

Hi DeAn . Lucky you !!! Also Pre ordered Tull . Friday s on my mind .

Richard Fisher

Hi DeAn. I’m in the UK and I got my Stormwatch box on the original release date too. I was puzzled when I subsequently saw the boxset wasn’t being released until November! Anyway whenever it’s released it’s a nice thing to have and those who’ve ordered it will enjoy it whenever it arrives. These Tull boxsets are excellent value!

Craig

The Police Box Set is £15 in Tesco! Ridiculous price for a new release set.
