Expanded and Remastered Music News

News Round-Up: Dead on Vinyl, Closer to Elvis, Deluxe Duran Rearranged and More

with 2 comments

  • The Grateful Dead is releasing a five-LP box set containing reissues of the band’s first five studio albums for Warner Bros. records. Collectors will want to take note that this box will include the original mixes of Anthem of the Sun and Aoxomoxoa, which have not been released since the original LPs came out. The set is due on September 21; pre-orders placed now get a bonus reproductions of a 7″ single and a vintage promo poster.
  • While we await tomorrow’s pre-order date for a crazy-enormous Elvis box set; Legacy has announced another Elvis catalogue project: Viva Elvis, the soundtrack to the forthcoming Cirque du Soleil event. Due out in November, the album promises to be a project very similar to The Beatles’ Love, with literally tens of thousands of Elvis samples abounding in new musical contexts.
  • Based on EMI’s news release through the official Duran Duran Web site, the finalized track listings for September’s reissues of Notorious and Big Thing actually look a bit different from what was previously reported. The remixes are arranged before the live material on the Notorious bonus disc (and one previously-available-on-CD remix will be featured as a digital bonus track) while the Big Thing reissue will present the original album with the band-approved B-side remix of “Drug” in place of the original album version, which will be added to the second disc. They’re still due out September 28 in America.
  • Neil Young informed his fanbase (or warned, depending on how much money you have) that Archives, Vol. 2 is in the works. Four unreleased albums look to be dug up in the process, including Chrome Dreams, Homegrown, Oceanside-Countryside and a vintage live recording.
  • Finally, anyone wondering how much unreleased material was slated for Warner’s Tim Burton & Danny Elfman 25th Anniversary Music Box can at least help determine the answer: producer Richard Kraft is taking requests on the Film Score Monthly message board.

After the jump, enjoy the track listings for the Dead box and the upcoming Duran sets.

  1. I believe that the mix of Anthem of the Sun available all these years is the original mix. IIRC, the album was remixed in the early 70’s (1972 or thereabouts). When the CDs rolled out in the late 80s, and the subsequent Rhino remaster, they went back to the original mix. I can’t swear to this, but I’m pretty sure that’s right.

    Aoxomoxoa, however, was remixed around the same time and the original mix has been unavailable ever since. I thought I’d read that the tapes of the original mix couldn’t be found and that’s why the original hasn’t been reissued in all these years, even for the Rhino remaster. I guess they’ve been found?

    Having heard the original mix of Aoxomoxoa, in bootleg form, I can tell you it’s radically different in places. Entire portions of some songs were removed or altered for the remix. I prefer that original mix for Aoxomoxoa, as it’s more psychedelic and weird. If it really is the original mix being released, I’m really disappointed that there’s no CD release being planned.
