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. Read the rest of this entry »
