Short Takes: The Kinks are Koming Stateside, B.A.D. Reissues Planned, MBV Insanity, More Live Dead

with 3 comments

  • Those upcoming deluxe reissues of the first three Kinks LPs in the U.K. this April are coming to American record stores too! They’ve been set for April 12, one week after the British release date. (Thanks to MusicTAP for the tip!)
  • Buried at the bottom of a press release touting the forthcoming Big Audio Dynamite reunion tour – no doubt spurred on in part by last year’s pretty great deluxe reissue of their first album – there’s a mention that Legacy is working with B.A.D. on more Legacy Editions of their catalogue. No word on what’s being planned specifically, but this was enough to get your catalogue correspondent to listen to “The Globe” a few times this morning.
  • Slicing Up Eyeballs’ love-hate affair with remasters of the My Bloody Valentine catalogue continues, as remastered editions of Isn’t Anything and Loveless are delayed yet again. Even I didn’t have it that bad with the Duran Duran catalogue.
  • It’s been awfully quiet from Rhino lately, but the label is putting out a soundtrack with some stuff that might be of interest to Deadheads. The Music Never Stopped, an upcoming father-son drama starring J.K. Simmons, will feature tracks by The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Steppenwolf and Crosby, Stills & Nash – and three of those Dead tracks are previously unreleased live cuts. The collection is out now digitally and will arrive in physical form on March 29. Hit the jump to check out the track list.

  1. Speaking of the Duran Duran catalog, is that dead in the water now? Any official word on whether more reissues are coming, or did EMI already sink that idea?

    • Haven’t heard anything official yet from when last I asked, Don. Although I figure the band’s been too busy promoting the new album (REALLY good, btw, and released Stateside this week with five or six extra tracks than what was on iTunes before Christmas) to sign off on anything. Not that they need to be fully involved, I suppose, but as an eternal optimist I like to think whoever’s over at EMI Catalogue has some genuine love for the band and whatever reissues they choose to release. (Even though the mastering would certainly suggest otherwise.)

  2. Thanks for the update! Looking very forward to the new album. I skipped the iTunes version knowing that an expanded CD version was coming. I’m planning to pick it up at Best Buy where it will have two bonus tracks.
