David Bowie / Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles) 2CD set

This two-CD edition of the Record Store Day vinyl release of David Bowie‘s Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles ’74) is a simply a ‘must have’ purchase for any Bowie fan. Especially since Parlophone have said the vinyl will stay exclusive to RSD. Read more

Can: The Singles

Can / The Singles

This new Can compilation from Mute is a 23-track collection which makes a point of using original single versions. The triple vinyl set is great value and comes packaged in a tri-fold sleeve with spot gloss lamination. Read more

King Crimson / The Elements Of… 2017 Tour Box

These King Crimson ‘Tour Boxes’ are brilliant. Somewhere in a parallel universe, Kate Bush is taking this kind of interest in her own back catalogue/archive. Read more

David Bowie / Be My Wife (7″ picture disc)

Be My Wife is one of David Bowie‘s more obscure singles. It was the second (and last) 45 from 1977’s Low and wasn’t a hit. Regardless, it’s 40 years old and thus gets the seven-inch picture disc treatment like all the others! Read more

Alison Moyet / Other (new album)

Alison Moyet follows up 2013’s The Minutes with another album produced by Guy Sigsworth. A new world tour starts in September, but she’ll be playing the Round Chapel in Hackney tonight, with a pre-show Q&A (sorry, it’s sold out).  Read more

Simple Minds / Acoustic In Concert

We’ve had the Acoustic studio album, the tour and now Simple Minds complete the circle with the live album. On the face of it, this seems inessential, although the CD+DVD combo (the latter with 5.1 surround sound) looks like a decent package. Read more

The Rolling Stones / Some Girls (Live In Texas)

Eagle Rock continue to squeeze juice out of this Rolling Stones gig from 1978. In 2011, they issued it on multiple CD/DVD/Blu-ray formats, then in 2012 there was a 2LP+DVD edition. Now it’s available as a bog-standard CD (they’re issuing a few other titles too).

Saint Etienne / Tiger Bay (2CD deluxe edition)

The double-disc deluxe edition of Saint Etienne‘s 1994 album is back in print. The bonus CD features all the B-sides and some demos. So Tough is also available again.

Billy MacKenzie / Beyond The Sun

It’s been out for a while in some territories, but this vinyl reissue of Billy Mackenzie‘s Beyond The Sun is worth a mention. This was the record he was working on when he took his own life in January 1997. It was eventually released later that year by Nude Records.

Big Star / The Best Of Big Star

After lots of album reissue activity, here’s a simple 16-track Big Star best of, available on CD or two-LP vinyl.
