UMe Brings the Goods in the U.K. with New Deluxe Editions

with 3 comments

If you have a sinking suspicion that more and more reissues are going to come from foreign shores, the next batch of titles aren’t going to convince you otherwise. Universal Music Enterprise’s U.K. arm has announced several new deluxe edition titles from The Who, The Jam, Supertramp and Cast.

First up, it looks like The Who’s iconic Live at Leeds is getting the super-deluxe treatment in England on November 8 (a U.S. date has not been locked down). The set will include the complete Leeds show on two discs (previously released as a basic deluxe edition in the U.S.), another two CDs of the previously unreleased Hull performance from the following night (very nearly released instead of Leeds), vinyl reproductions of the original LP and a single (“Summertime Blues” b/w “Heaven and Hell”), a hardcover book of photos and liner notes and more.

The Jam will see a deluxe reissue of penultimate album Sound Affects, the 1980 record that yielded U.K. chart-topper “Start!” and fan favorite “That’s Entertainment” (famously covered by Morrissey). It will feature a disc of B-sides and alternates, including eight previously unreleased demos. (A nice complement to Hip-0 Select’s full reissue of the compilation Snap! some years back!) Look for that on November 1 in the U.K.

Before that we can expect a re-release of All Change, the debut album by British band Cast. Cast, formed by John Power of The La’s and Peter Wilkinson of Shack, were one of the many darlings of the Britpop movement (the album remains one of Polydor’s highest sellers); this double-disc set will complement their legacy (and provide a good commemoration of their impending reunion tour in Europe) with a clutch of demos and live material. That comes out October 18.

Last (well first, technically), Supertramp’s seminal Breakfast in America (1979) will be expanded on October 4. This record spawned four U.S. hit singles (“The Logical Song,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Goodbye Stranger” and the title track) and was, oddly enough, the only hint of success the band had in their native England. (When rap-rock band The Gym Class Heroes released the single “Cupid’s Chokehold” in 2006, the U.K. single was retitled to reflect the “Breakfast” sample, as “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast in America.”) The set will be expanded with a live disc recorded about the same time as the band’s 1980 live LP Paris.

Pre-order links exist for Breakfast in America, All Change and Sound Affects; the rest will be provided as available. Hit the jump for all the track lists!
