Ancora tre box in uscita durante l’estate in corso, con questi ci spingiamo fino al 3 settembre e dovrei avere esaurito le “riserve” di notizie sulle prossime pubblicazioni (ma qualcosa potrebbe essere sfuggito o aggiungersi all’ultimo momento, ne parlerò eventualmente nei Post regolari dedicati alle anticipazioni settimanali). Si parla di ulteriori ristampe per King Crimson, Yes e Xtc a cura di Steven Wilson ma ne parleremo al momento opportuno.

Marc Bolan At The BBC – 6 CD – Universal 27-08 -2013

Se pensavate di aver comprato tutti i cofanetti possibili dedicati a Marc Bolan (e ai T.Rex), incluso un Bolan At The Beeb sempre pubblicato dalla Universal nel 2007, oltre alle Deluxe di The Slider ed Electric Warrior, ebbene vi sbagliavate perché a fine agosto uscirà quella che dovrebbe (condizionale d’obbligo) essere la compilation definitiva delle registrazioni effettuate da Bolan per l’emittente inglese nel periodo 1967-1977, compreso il materiale come John’s Children e Tyrannosaurus Rex. Naturalmente vale il principio che si ricompra sempre la stessa roba anche se ogni volta arricchita da nuove aggiunte, ma ormai il mercato delle ristampe funziona così. Almeno, per l’occasione, il cofanetto uscirà a prezzo speciale. Questi i contenuti:

Il grosso, naturalmente, riguarda il periodo 1968-73, degli anni dal 1974 al 1977 provengono solo una dozzina di brani, interviste comprese, ma il personaggio sicuramente merita questo trattamento, anche se fuori dai confini inglesi la sua fama non ha mai neanche lontanamente avvicinato quella del suo “rivale” David Bowie, pur essendo il talento di Bolan del tutto rispettabile. Una ulteriore buona occasione per scoprirlo.

Gentle Giant – Memories Of Old Days: A Compendium Of Curios, Bootlegs, Live Tracks, Rehearsals And Demos 1975-1980 – 5 CD EMI/Universal 30-07-2013

Direi che in questo caso il sottotitolo del cofanetto dice tutto ed è un degno compagno del box quadruplo che era uscito all’incirca un annetto fa, nell’estate del 2012, I Lost My Head, The Chrysalis Years 1975-1980. Indirizzato soprattutto ai fans, anche se già nel 2004 era uscita una compilation intitolata Scraping The Barrel, che però evidentemente non aveva “raschiato il fondo” ed in ogni caso toccava periodi diversi della loro produzione!

Solita lista dei contenuti, ma direi che per gli amanti di uno migliori e più misconosciuti gruppi degli anni ’70 (e oltre), strepitosi a livello musicale, questa è una occasione d’oro per ampliare la (nostra) collezione: mi inserisco anch’io.
