NEWSLETTER '07 #8!
This week's NEWSLETTER will get right to the point. It's been a hectic week at the NYCD office and we don't want to take it out on you. So...NEW RELEASES ANYONE?
COOL BIG RELEASE OF THE WEEK!
BOB DYLAN - DON'T LOOK BACK (65 TOUR DELUXE EDITION). D.A. Pennebaker's classic film of Dylan's 1965 British tour, plus an incredible amount of bonus stuff, has been beefed up into one heavy DVD box set. Lots of unseen footage from the tour, five additional uncut audio tracks, new audio commentary, the 1968 companion book to the film, and even an alternate version of the famous "Subterranean Homesick Blues" "cue card" video, not to mention a NEW FILM culled from over 20 hours of unreleased footage from the '65 tour. WOW.
BOZ SCAGGS - SILK DEGREES (EXPANDED). The legendary disco/soul masterpiece from 1976 was briefly out of print, but now gets its first US remastering, along with three previously unreleased live tracks. You know you love "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle," not to mention "Georgia" and "What Do You Want The Girl To Do."
Believe it or not, these are the only two releases worth mentioning this week. But just in case you're thinking we're holding out on you, here are some other things that are orderable. If you need more details, feel free to EMAIL or CALL (212) 244-3460.
BECK - THE INFORMATION (DELUXE EDITION). Now includes six remixes and some videos. The non-deluxe version had the videos and a whole lot of stickers.
DEAN & BRITTA - BACK NUMBERS. Half of Luna ("Mezzaluna" for you Italians out there) record a sophomore record that picks up where their debut left off. Where was that, actually?
JOHN DENVER - THE ESSENTIAL. 2 CDs, 36 tracks about mountains, snow and George Burns. R.I.P.
LISA GERRARD - THE BEST OF (IMPORT). Half of the gothic duo Dead Can Dance ("Mezzamorte di Tarantella" for you Italians out there) gets anthologized?
KILLERS - SAM'S TOWN. The critically panned followup to the overrated debut has been reissued every week since its initial release. Here it is again, featuring yet another bonus track and some videos.
VICTOR KRUMMENACHER - COCK CROWS AT SUNRISE. A member of Camper Van Beethoven who is not David Lowery has somehow released four previous solo albums completely unbeknownst to us. His fifth is being released knownst to us.
NICO - ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES. Two extremely rare early '80s live performances by a woman who, by the early '80s, was a dead woman walking. We're a-scared, Norton.
THE RUTLES - ARCHAEOLOGY (REMASTER). Thank goodness someone found the time to remaster this one. Includes lots of bonus tracks!
