Something to Shout About

leave a comment »

A few new titles coming our way from Shout! Factory. The label perhaps best known for being born of Rhino ex-pats – ex-pats who got one of the best live concert films ever out on DVD for the first time – have announced reissues of two very different titles that will please rock fans out there.

First up, Concrete Blonde – the seminal Los Angeles alt-rockers of the late ’80s and early ’90s – had previously announced a reunion tour to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their most famous LP Bloodletting (home of the Top 20 hit “Joey”). Today, they announced plans to reissue the record with a nice heap of bonus tracks, due out on July 13.

Two weeks later, Billy Squier will reissue Don’t Say No, his 1981 hit, on the label. This record, which includes the enduring hit “The Stroke” and production from Mack (Queen’s producer through much of the 1980s), will include two as-yet live bonus tracks when it’s released on July 27.

Hit the jump for track lists for both sets. (Thanks to our friends Slicing Up Eyeballs and Pause & Play for the tips.) Read the rest of this entry »
