Typically, we’re physical-obsessed purchasers (the older of us, anyway). We want to hold, read, and place our discs into players. Bu more and more, labels are reissuing music in digital formats only. As a result, we sometimes miss out on “packages” that are only digitally released. Some of them are interesting. For downloaders, here’s a few upcoming DD arrivals for familiar names.

On October 23, Rhino will release Joni Mitchell Archives, Volume 1: The Early Years (1963-1967).

The Dead & Company will see two live dates titles arriving separately. Those include Madison Square Garden, New York, NY – 10/31/2019, and Madison Square Garden, New York, NY – 11/01/2019. These are on the calendar for October 30.

October 23 will deliver the DD for Crooked Piece of Time: The Atlantic and Asylum Albums (1971-1980) for John Prine.

Jah Wobble of PiL, and Invaders of the Heart fame, will release In Dub II in DD format on September 25.

The Royal Affair Tour (Live in Las Vegas) featuring Yes, will be issued on DD on October 30.

Also on September 25, the 25th Anniversary of the Coolio album, Gangsta’s Paradise will be celebrated with a new remaster of the album. [A limited edition vinyl LP is planned for RSD with 1500 copies in production] The 25th Anniversary CD Edition was released in February.
