Reissue Round-Up: To the Moon with Simon

with one comment

Here’s a handful of blurbs that we can thank MusicTAP for bringing to our attention from Legacy Recordings:

  • There’s a date on the calendar (August 10, to be exact) saved for a 10th anniversary reissue of Modest Mouse’s The Moon and Antarctica. The band’s major-label debut was previously reissued in 2004 (after the mainstream success of follow-up album Good News for People Who Love Bad News and its hit single “Float On”); that reissue saw the LP get a brand-new remix and four live bonus tracks from a BBC session. No word on what this version’s going to have.
  • Many were quick to point out, not long after it was reported that Paul Simon was moving his catalogue to Sony, that his albums were being scrubbed from digital music providers. On Tuesday, July 13, they’ll be back in all digital music stores, firmly in the hands of Legacy. The albums in question are Paul Simon (1972), There Goes Rhymin’ Simon (1973), Paul Simon in Concert: Live Rhymin’ (1974), Still Crazy After All These Years (1975), One Trick Pony (1980), Hearts and Bones (1983), Graceland (1986), The Rhythm of the Saints (1990), Paul Simon’s Concert in the Park: August 15, 1991 (1991), Songs from The Capeman (1997), You’re the One (2000), Surprise (2006) and the 2002 compilation The Paul Simon Collection: On My Way, Don’t Know Where I’m Goin’.

  1. I’ll bet money the mastering of the Simon catalog is the same as the previous Rhino/WB round (Greg Calbi, IIRC)…which is fine with me and my wallet.
