More “ICON” Titles on the Way

with 3 comments

Universal has another batch of Icon titles coming your way.

The next wave kicks off with a tribute to recently-deceased Motown luminary Teena Marie on February 15; the rest of the titles are set for a March 1 release. They run the gamut from country (Loretta Lynn, Billy Ray Cyrus) to soul/funk (The Four Tops, Kool & The Gang, The Gap Band) and some rock-oriented surprises (Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, joke-rockers The Bloodhound Gang).

Are there many surprises? Not really, although the presence of a double-disc Icon set for War is apparently the prelude to a catalogue expansion for the funk outfit. Amazon’s product description corroborates this notion with the mention of more War reissues coming this year and the next.

All the track lists can be viewed after the jump, with links to all of the sets on Amazon therein.

  1. The Teena Marie Icon disc has the same tracklisting as the readily available 20th century Masters collection with “Fire and Desire” as an added track, i.e. what’s the point? Especially since the Icon series cd’s have sparse booklets without liner notes.
    I wish Universal would focus more on re-releasing individual albums instead of continuously rehashing compilation cds!

  2. On a related note, Sony Japan will be reissuing all of Teena’s Epic albums on cd in mini LP sleeves with bonus tracks on April 13.

  3. Some of these comps are truly baffling. If you’re going to put out yet another compilation of a group/artist that already has several, wouldn’t you want to either include everything or put some tracks on it that aren’t available anywhere else?

    The Joe Walsh set without Life’s Been Good? Teena Marie with no Lovergirl? Another anemic Kool & The Gang comp? Yawn.

    So far the only one that’s been worth purchasing for me is the Sheryl Crow set, though the ones with remixes are decent.
