Hold On to Your Friends: Morrissey’s “Vauxhall and I” to Be Expanded

with one comment

Vauxhall and IOn June 3, Morrissey is picking up where he left off.  Parlophone Records will follow the February CD/DVD reissue of 1992’s Your Arsenal with the next album in his considerable catalogue, 1994’s Vauxhall and I.  Like Your Arsenal, the remastered CD of Vauxhall will be packaged with a previously unreleased live concert performance, this time also on CD.

Vauxhall and I was a very different animal than its predecessor.  Since the release of Arsenal, the artist had suffered the loss of that album’s producer, Mick Ronson.  He paired with producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Big Country) for Vauxhall.  Lillywhite crafted a spare, often acoustic aesthetic to match the dark, somber and introspective songs written by Morrissey with his collaborators Alain Whyte and Boz Boorer.  Whyte and Boorer both contributed guitar to the LP and were joined by Jonny Bridgwood on bass and Woodie Taylor on drums.  The result was a stripped-down, elegiac, less heavily guitar-oriented LP.

Parlophone’s press release describes it as follows: “Vauxhall and I signaled an acceptance of ageing amidst the tyranny of time, casting off the shackles of the past, with a will to embrace the future. Along the way the album visits a cast of characters, including, references to Brighton Rock – gorgeous, exhilarating album opener ‘Now My Heart Is Full’ – those whom disregard all social conventions and ‘take life at five times the average speed’ (‘Spring-Heeled Jim’) and rejected romantics (‘Billy Budd’ – also a Herman Melville character). It also lays waste to ignorant and selfish tourist whom are ‘jaded by stagnation’ (‘The Lazy Sunbathers’), the unthinking and unquestioning (‘Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself’ – later covered by The Killers), and tackles the inevitable loss of innocence (‘Used To Be A Sweet Boy’), amongst other inimitable themes.”

Despite the personal nature of the material, however, the artist scored an unexpected hit.  Lead single “The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get” became his only song – either solo or with The Smiths – to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S., where it reached No. 46.  It also reached No. 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. In his native United Kingdom, the track went all the way to No. 8, and was the artist’s only Top 10 of the decade.    The album itself was also a success.  In the U.S., it made the Top 20 of the Billboard 200; in the U.K., it became Morrissey’s second No. 1 album after his 1988 solo debut Viva Hate.

After the jump, we have more on Vauxhall and I including pre-order links and the full track listing of both CDs! Read the rest of this entry »

Morrissey Reloads “Arsenal” for February Reissue

leave a comment »

Your ArsenalMaybe it’s his catalogue in the hands of a new owner, with Parlophone now being managed by Rhino/Warner Music Group. Maybe it’s the rushing wave of acidic nostalgia that came with publishing his hit Autobiography. Or maybe it’s just been too long since the last reissue. Whatever the reason, Morrissey’s 1992 album Your Arsenal is getting remastered and expanded for a February release.

Featuring a new band anchored by guitarists Boz Boorer and Alain Whyte – still Moz’s chief collaborators to this day – and a rockabilly-inspired production by the late Mick Ronson, Your Arsenal was the first of many Morrissey albums hailed as a return to form for the ex-Smiths frontman. While it was not without its share of controversy (the war on Morrissey waged by NME had perhaps hit a fever pitch at this time, thanks to their perception of some of the album’s lyrics as glorifying of hooliganism and far-right English politics), it nonetheless did well on both sides of the Atlantic, with audiences embracing songs like “Glamorous Glue,” “We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful” and “Tomorrow” on the U.S. modern rock charts.

It wouldn’t be a Morrissey reissue without a little bit of original album tweaking, and while this is perhaps his most subtlest reconfiguration yet, it is indeed a reconfiguration: “Tomorrow” is featured in its U.S. single mix version. But this “Definitive Master” edition will include perhaps more bonus material than ever before seen or heard on a Moz re-release: a DVD featuring a complete show from the previous year’s Kill Uncle tour, recorded at California’s Shoreline Amphitheater on Halloween 1991. This set not only featured the band that would record Your Arsenal, but includes two new tracks that would be recorded at that time: “We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful” and non-LP B-side “Pashernate Love.”

Your Arsenal: Definitive Master is out on February 24 and 25 as a CD/DVD or vinyl remaster (the latter featuring a new gatefold sleeve). Hit the jump for the full specs and pre-order links!

Best Laid “Van”s: Do Artists’ Opinions on Their Catalogue Titles Influence Your Purchases?

with 10 comments

Van Morrison - Moondance BoxNot long after Joe had posted about Rhino’s upcoming expansion of Van Morrison’s Moondance, I vocalized my pleasant surprise at the news. Morrison’s history with reissues has been spotty at best; a late-2000s reissue campaign was quickly halted and almost instantly commanded top dollar on the secondary market.

The next day, however, Morrison issued a statement denouncing the project, taking particular issue with the wording of the press release suggesting he was involved. “It is important that people realise that this is factually incorrect,” the statement read in part. “I did not endorse this, it is unauthorised and it has happened behind my back.”

This is hardly the first time an artist has openly criticized their own catalogue works. Prince, who was allegedly paid to stay out of the compilation and release of The Hits/The B-Sides in 1993, insisted on a bevy of changes to 2006’s Ultimate Prince and then planned a new album to curtail its release. Elvis Costello, whose catalogue has been released three times as expanded CDs on three different labels, suggested that current rights owners Hip-O/UMe had “gotten off on the wrong foot” with a series of live reissues, “doing too many records from the same time period and the same repertoire.” And Morrissey, even as he has gotten involved in radically revisiting his own catalogue, has had choice words for previous box set efforts.

Generally, though, such instances are rare. When it comes to the major labels, most will not (and in some cases cannot) embark on a vault project for a beloved artist without the consent (if not participation) of the artist in question. This isn’t for fear of bad publicity, but the more obvious legal entanglements.

The question we pose for you today, in light of Van Morrison’s opinions, is this: will his – or anyone’s – opinion of this apparently “unauthorised” catalogue activity stop you from opening your wallets? Have a vote in our poll and let us know what you think!

Sandie Shaw Reissues Are At Your Feet from Salvo (UPDATED 6/3)

with one comment

Hello AngelUPDATE (6/3): Available today, Salvo has expanded and reissued three more Sandie Shaw LPs. They are 1968’s The Sandie Shaw Supplement, featuring covers of The Rolling Stones (“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”) and Simon & Garfunkel (“Scarborough Fair”); the self-produced cult hit Reviewing the Situation (1969) and 1988’s Hello Angel, her first LP for Rough Trade and featuring a heap of single-only material with labelmates and fans The Smiths.

ORIGINAL POST (4/8/2013): British pop chanteuse Sandie Shaw is at the center of a new reissue campaign in 2013 from U.K. label Salvo Records, with three expanded albums and one new compilation hitting the shops overseas today.

Born Sandra Ann Goodrich in Dagenham, Essex, Shaw was one of U.K. pop’s most notable female performers, thanks to her idiosyncratic performances (she was often seen on Top of the Pops and other British pop shows performing to her singles while barefoot) and reputation as an interpreter of other peoples’ songs. Between 1964 and 1969, Shaw had eight U.K. Top 10 hits for the Pye label, including No. 1 singles “(There’s) Always Something There to Remind Me” (the first hit interpretation of the Burt Bacharach-Hal David classic, before Naked Eyes made it a U.S. hit in the ’80s), “Long Live Love” and “Puppet on a String” – the latter of which, although not a favorite of the performer’s, earned her wider acclaim when her performance won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was the first time a British act took home the prize.

Sandie ShawShaw briefly retired from the industry in the 1970s, but was lured out again in the 1980s by a new generation of performers that counted themselves fans. B.E.F., the electronic music duo of Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh (after their departure from the Human League but before recruiting Glenn Gregory to form Heaven 17), backed her up on a version of another Bacharach-David gem, “Anyone Who Had a Heart.” Chrissie Hynde invited her to perform her biggest U.S. hit “Girl Don’t Come” with The Pretenders. And so taken were the duo of Morrissey and Johnny Marr by Shaw that they got her signed to Rough Trade Records alongside their band, The Smiths, and joined her on several of her first singles for the label – all covers of the band’s songs. (Morrissey and producer Stephen Street would pen “Please Help the Cause Against Loneliness” for Shaw’s 1988 album Hello Angel; his own version was released on the expanded edtion of the Bona Drag compilation in 2010.)

Shaw still records and tours today; for her 60th birthday, she re-recorded “Puppet on a String” to her liking with Howard Jones and producer Andy Gray. And her (self-owned) catalogue will come to Salvo this year, with one batch including a new compilation (Long Live Love: The Very Best of Sandie Shaw) and expanded editions of her first three albums, appended with dozens of non-LP single tracks.

After the jump, check out full track details and pre-order links for all of Salvo’s expanded titles!

Such Things I Do to Make Myself More Attractive to You: Morrissey Re-Tools “Kill Uncle” for Reissue (UPDATED 3/6)

with 6 comments

Kill Uncle 2013UPDATE (3/6): Morrissey has released the artwork for these new titles. The single cover for “The Last of the Famous International Playboys” was slated to feature an unreleased pic of Moz and David Bowie until the latter denied use of the image. Instead, the singer has cheekily used a picture of himself with pop Rick Astley backstage at Top of the Pops in 1988. No word as to whether or not the single will be intentionally mis-pressed to feature “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

ORIGINAL POST (2/5/2013): Dear hero imprisoned: iconoclastic crooner Morrissey is continuing his trend of tweaked catalogue projects with a forthcoming new version of sophomore album Kill Uncle and a reissue of non-LP single “The Last of the Famous International Playboys.”

Released in 1991, two years after the superb (and also recently re-imagined) Bona Drag compilation, Kill Uncle marked an intriguing transition away from his work with former Smiths producer Stephen Street. Producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, known for their work with Madness and Elvis Costello & The Attractions, helmed the album, featuring musical contributions by guitarist Mark E. Nevin, then of the recently-split Fairground Attraction, plus ex-Madness bassist Mark Bedford and session drummer Andrew Paresi. (Nevin co-wrote all but two of the album’s songs with Morrissey.)

Featuring a pair of unconventional-sounding singles, “Our Frank” and “Sing Your Life” (neither of which charted anywhere past the lower half of the British Top 40), Kill Uncle marked an unusual departure for the singer, less heavy on rock riffs and with lots of unconventional production techniques. Moz treaded into more muscular rock territory with the following year’s Your Arsenal, produced by iconic guitarist Mick Ronson and featuring the first work with longtime collaborators Alain Whyte and Boz Boorer.

Parlophone’s new edition of Kill Uncle features a tweaked track list – adding two non-LP B-sides not recorded during the album sessions (“Pashernate Love” and “East West,” a Herman’s Hermits cover), and replacing album-closing torch song “There’s a Place in Hell for Me and My Friends” with an unreleased “live-in-studio” version that now serves as the album’s penultimate track. Bill Inglot at D2 Mastering has remastered the album, which will be available on both CD and vinyl and feature new, as-yet unreleased gatefold cover art and rare photos.

The same day of Kill Uncle‘s re-release, April 8, Moz reissues one of his most enduring singles – and specs on that are after the jump!

Viva Morrissey! U.K. Singer’s First Album and Single Gets Reissued

with 6 comments

Inifintely brilliant, often fickle rock icon Morrissey is reissuing one of his most beloved albums this spring – but it’s another one of those situations where fans are going to want to hold on to their old copies, too.

Semi-official fansite True to You posted a news release today for a reissue of Viva Hate, Morrissey’s debut solo album from 1988. Released just six months after the breakup of The Smiths and featuring longtime Smiths engineer/producer Stephen Street, Viva Hate was a always-verbose, often-cutting burst of creativity from the singer, featuring two of his greatest solo singles, the U.K. Top 10 hits “Suedehead” and “Everyday is Like Sunday.”

The new release, to be available on CD and vinyl and remastered personally by Street, will feature only one bonus track, an outtake from the Viva Hate sessions called “Treat Me Like a Human Being” which is actually replacing “The Ordinary Boys” on the standard track list. It was first released last year as a B-side to 1991 single “Glamorous Glue,” itself reissued to promote a new compilation of Moz’s. (This is not the first time Viva Hate has been reissued; in 1997, EMI issued an expanded edition with new artwork for the label’s centennial.)

In addition, EMI will release a 10″ vinyl EP for Record Store Day, featuring a remix of “Suedehead” by Ron and Russell Mael, better known as Sparks (Slicing Up Eyeballs suggests this may be an edit of a previously-released remix), as well as two unreleased live tracks from 1995.

The new Viva Hate, which also features new liner notes by Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, will be released March 26. Hit the jump for full details.
