Short Takes: New Cash, Pistols Sets Coming in 2012

with one comment

  • Yesterday, February 26, would have been the 80th birthday of Johnny Cash, and his family tells Rolling Stone that there are quite a few festivities planned – and that includes some catalogue activity. We already know about Legacy’s Bootleg IV: The Soul of Truth in April, which collects rare and unreleased gospel material from the ’70s and ’80s. But the RS story also hints at a possible seventh volume of Cash’s American Recordings series as well as a possible PopMarket-style box of “everything Cash released on Sun and Columbia Records in the first three decades of his recording career, along with unreleased music.”
  • It looks like one of the biggest shoo-in anniversary reissues of the year is one step closer to reality: NME reports that The Sex Pistols have signed to Universal Music Catalogue in the U.K. ahead of a forthcoming 35th anniversary expansion of iconic LP Never Mind the Bollocks Here’s The Sex Pistols. The album was originally released by Virgin in 1977.

  1. If they do one of those cardboard boxes with mini-LP sleeves of every Cash album, I hope for two things:
    1. They split it into two boxes, one covering the period that Bear Family covered in their boxset series on Cash, and the other covering the period not included in the Bear Family boxsets.
    2. Include bonus tracks, singles, etc (like the Nina Simone box did, but the Leonard Cohen box did not)
