The release news for this nice Monday is a bit on the sparse side. As we near the holidays (sorry, folks…but it’s true y’know), the labels soften up until the final quarter, then push a little out. That means we’re heading toward our normal seasonal slowdown in title announcements. Still, all is not totally quiet…
When Capitol Records release the new Beatles title, On Air: Live At The BBC, Volume 2, they will also re-release a remastered Live At The BBC (1994) alongside of it. So, on November 11, both titles will be made available. Better yet, both titles will be made available on 2CD and 3LP sets.
Sargent House Records will release a new Russian Circles album, Memorial, on October 29, almost precisely two years after their last album, Empros. Memorial is streaming a track from the new album.
Blackheart Records (Joan Jett’s boutique label) have released No Apologies from The Eyeliners, on August 14. It slipped by me, so I thought I should let you know.
RCA/Legacy Records have a collection for Lita Ford coming in a series set, Playlist: The Very Best Of Lita Ford, on October 15.
Anti Records plan the release of Aheym with Kronos Quartet playing music by Bryce Dessner, scheduling for the November 5 date for both CD and LP.
