*NDB. Questo doveva essere il Post che precedeva quello dedicato al Box degli Eagles, ma essendo da considerarsi, spero momentaneamente, missing in action (ma a questo punto ho dei dubbi su un “ritorno” dei figliuoli prodighi scomparsi nella rete) nella traslazione del Blog nella sua nuova sede, ho deciso di riscriverlo. Alcuni cofanetti sono già usciti, altri sono in uscita, alcuni (pochi) usciranno nel 2014. Direi di partire con questa prima (?!?) parte, nei prossimi giorni la terza. La sequenza numerica è strana, ma non fateci caso. Come avranno notato i più attenti, per il momento, i filmati li trovate linkati a YouTube e non direttamente nel Blog, per permettere un caricamento più rapido dei Post che ora sono dieci a pagina. Spero che continuiate a seguire fedelmente il Blog. Mi sembra che sia anche più facile inserire eventuali commenti. Anzi, visto che fra poco, un paio di settimane, intorno a Sant’Ambrogio, l’Immacolata, come tutti gli anni, sarà il momento dei “Migliori dell’anno 2013”, se volete potete mandare le vostre liste proprio nei commenti. Senza obblighi, se vi va, so di avere un pubblico che ama più leggere che scrivere ma se vi gira!  Come sempre, buona lettura!

Animals – The Mickey Most Years And More – Real Gone Music/Ird – Limited Edition 5 CD + Extra Large T-Shirt in teoria esce domani 26 novembre, ma in effetti circola già da alcuni giorni sul terreno italico. Si tratta di un box che copre la discografia americana della band di Eric Burdon (che ha anche autografato le prime 100 copie del cofanetto che venivano vendute direttamente sul sito della etichetta, anzi, ad oggi, nel momento in cui scrivo, sembrerebbero essercene ancora http://www.realgonemusic.com/news/2013/11/13/information-on-the-autographed-animals-box-set.html, anche se, come sapete, acquistando dagli Stati Uniti, poi vi ritrovate a pagare tasse doganali ed IVA, oltre al centone del costo del manufatto):

si tratta dei primi quattro album, rigorosamente in mono, salvo dove indicato nelle bonus tracks, più l’EP di esordio. Grandissima musica, che ha influenzato anche il giovane Springsteen  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9kT13WXxG8, questa sotto, per la precisione:

Questo cofanetto dei Ramones fa parte della serie super budget della Warner/Rhino, il titolo, The Sire Years 1976-1981, indica già chiaramente il contenuto, purtroppo questa volta, secondo me, hanno toppato, perchè non hanno inserito le versioni con le bonus, anche se, per gusto della verità, i dischi del gruppo avevano uno dei loro punti di forza proprio nella compattezza e nella brevità. Questi gli album contenuti: Ramones (1976), Leave Home (1977), Rocket To Russia (1977), Road To Ruin (1978), End Of The Century (1980), e Pleasant Dreams (1981). E’ uscito il 29 ottobre scorso. Tutto iniziò così http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElX7x_qNUYQ

Questo cofanetto, ma anche la versione doppia Deluxe, sono usciti per la Polydor/Universal il 19 novembre. Bellissimo cofanetto, ma non posso fare a meno di dire, un’altra versione?

doors r-evolution

Questo, tecnicamente, non è esattamente un cofanetto, ma nella versione Deluxe che vedete effigiata qui sopra rientra nella categoria, così è una occasione per parlarne. Esce domani 26 novembre (il 2 dicembre in Italia) per la Eagle Rock/Edel e si tratta dell’ennesima raccolta di materiale “inedito”. Questa volta in formato video ed in ricordo dello scomparso Ray Manzarek (quanti ci hanno lasciato recentemente). La differenza rispetto alla versione standard è il libretto che vedete qui sopra. Quanto ai contenuti faccio prima a inserirvi il retro della copertina del DVD (che è uguale al Blu-Ray) e riporta tutti i contenuti, anche le Bonus Features, così cliccando sull’immagine ve le potete leggere tranquillamente:

Per la serie dei megaconfanetti dedicate alle opere omnie dei vecchi artisti Columbia, per la Sony Legacy è uscito il 12 novembre The Complete Columbia Album Collection 1972-1988, un box di 34 CD che racchiude i 31 dischi incisi in 16 anni (!?!) dal grande pianista e tastierista americano. Il prezzo è speciale come per tutti i prodotti di questa serie. Ero indeciso se inserire o meno questo lavoro certosino che ho trovato in rete che riporta album per album, tutti i brani inclusi e i musicisti che hanno suonato nei vari dischi, ma poi ho optato per il sì, così potete decidere o meno per eventuali acquisti. Buona lettura!

rod stewart time_deluxe-480x481

Riduciamo decisamente le dimensioni del prodotto, ma non l’incazzatura che mi provoca. Ok, il Natale si avvicina, e l’abbiamo detto, ma non si possono ripubblicare gli stessi album più volte a distanza di poco tempo, oltre alle Deluxe Editions che spesso escono in contemporanea, è una presa per i fondelli. Prendete questo Time, l’ultimo album di Rod Stewart, pubblicato dalla Capitol/Universal il 3 maggio, ora esce in una versione doppia (superando quindi anche l’ultimo Bowie che quantomeno, si fa per dire, era uscito a Marzo) che aggiunge un secondo dischetto dal vivo alla versione potenziata che era stata pubblicata in origine. Il tutto il 3 dicembre, al prezzo di un solo CD (almeno questo). Quindi cosa hanno aggiunto? Altre tre bonus in studio (che sono i brani blues and soul di cui si parlava prima dell’uscita ed erano “scomparsi” dalla versione definitiva) nel secondo dischetto e 10 brani dal vivo. Se non lo avevate preso fateci un pensierino visto che l’album, senza essere un capolavoro, è decisamente il migliore di Rod The Mod da lunga pezza a questa parte, meglio dei “pallosissimi” disch della serie dei Great American Songbook.
