Ancora Una “Infornata” Di Nuovi Cofanetti Pre-Natalizi. King Crimson, Supertramp, Wilco, Hollies, Jethro Tull, Kinks, David Bowie, John Martyn, Velvet Underground Parte I

king crimson starless box

Ormai non c’è limite all’ingordigia delle case discografiche, ogni anno, quando il Natale si avvicina, il numero dei cofanetti cresce in ordine esponenziale, vanno veramente come il pane, a proposito di “infornate”! Ieri vi ho parlato di quello dedicato a Joni Mitchell, nelle settimane e nei mesi scorsi vi avevo anticipato i box di Rory Gallagher e Bruce Cockburn, ora in imminenza di uscita, i due cofanetti dei Wings, che dopo vari spostamenti delle date, verranno pubblicati al 4 novembre. Stesso giorno dell’uscita del cofanetto di Bob Dylan dei Complete Basement Tapes e del box di Captain Beefheart. Oggi ne vediamo un’altra decina di prossima pubblicazione, tra ottobre e novembre. Partiamo con questo megacofanetto di cui vedete l’immagine ad inizio Post:

King Crimson – Starless – DGM/Panegyric 23 CD + 2 DVD-A + 2 Blu-Ray

Esce in questi giorni l’ennesimo box dedicato ai King Crimson, vi metto i contenuti, anche se c’è da leggere per un paio di settimane, oltre a tutto all’interno della confezione c’è anche un codice per scaricare un ulteriore 28° CD. Il prossimo cofanetto di quanti dischi sarà, quaranta? Ok al completismo, però forse si sta esagerando, comunque bella confezione, come al solito https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1X8pddqAAPU .

supertramp crime of the century deluxe

Supetramp – Crime Of The Century – 2 CD Deluxe Edition – A&M Universal

Esce l’8 dicembre, per il 40° anniversario dell’uscita dell’album originale, rimasterizzato, e qui ne vale la pena, perché l’album originale in vinile, prodotto da Ken Scott, era uno dei dischi in vinile meglio incisi dell’epoca, 1974, e anche un gran bel disco, aggiungo, uno dei classici “piaceri proibiti” della storia del rock, uno di quelli che bisognava dire in secreto che ti piaceva, perché non faceva tendenza. Nel secondo CD ci sarà, sempre rimasterizzato, un concerto tenuto all’Hammersmith Odeon di Londra nel 1975, già uscito per una piccola etichetta inglese, la Pilot, nel 2001, come Is Everybody Listening?, con la dicitura errata che diceva trattarsi di un concerto registrato a Cleveland, Ohio. Quindi, per aggiungere errore ad errore, non è inedito come annuncia questa nuova versione doppia (o in triplo vinile). Questi i brani del disco dal vivo:

  1. “School” – 6:17 – Lead vocals by Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies
  2. “Bloody Well Right” – 6:50 – Lead vocals by Rick Davies
  3. “Hide in Your Shell” – 6:52 – Lead vocals by Roger Hodgson
  4. “Asylum” – 7:05 – Lead vocals by Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson
  5. “Sister Moonshine” – 5:21 – Lead vocals by Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies
  6. “Just a Normal Day” – 4:09 – Lead vocals by Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson
  7. “Another Man’s Woman” – 7:47 – Lead vocals by Rick Davies
  8. “Lady” – 8:58 – Lead vocals by Roger Hodgson
  9. “Dreamer” – 3:30 – Lead vocals by Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies
  10. “Rudy” – 7:25 – Lead vocals by Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson
  11. “If Everyone Was Listening” – 4:35 – Lead vocals by Roger Hodgson
  12. “Crime of the Century” – 6:08 – Lead vocals by Rick Davies

Wilco – Alpha Mike Foxtrot: Rare Tracks 1994-2014 – 4CD Nonesuch/dBPM Records – 18-11-2014

Anche per il gruppo di Jeff Tweedy, vista la ricchezza dei loro archivi, utilizzati anche per moltissimi dischi dal vivo, venduti solo in rete, che prima o poi uscisse un cofanetto di rarità e materiale Live. Dovrebbe uscire per la “vecchia” casa discografica, la Nonesuch, probabilmente per completare qualche clausola contrattuale, comunque renderà sicuramente felici i fans dei Wilco, meno i loro portafogli, vista la notevole mole di uscite natalizie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmZfV6tqbTU .

Come vedete è ricchissimo di chicche e quindi temo che non se ne potrà fare a meno

the hollies af fifty

The Hollies At Fifty – 3 CD Rhino – 21-10-2014

Come vedete qui sopra, anche questo esce praticamente immediatamente: si tratta dell’ennesimo, cofanetto, antologia, Best, per festeggiare i 50 anni della band di Allan Clarke, Tony Hicks e Graham Nash https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFPu83ggTlM . Se non avete nulla potrebbe essere la giusta occasione per conoscere una delle band storiche del pop-rock inglese. 50 canzoni, fortunamente senza una valanga di inediti, così egoisticamente posso restare con quello che ho già. L’unica concessione al mercato dei collezionisti compulsivi è un brano nuovo Skylarks, registrato quest’anno e scritto dal vecchio batterista del gruppo, Bobby Elliott, l’unico ancora in formazione, e dal nuovo cantante Peter Howarth, e qualche versione alternativa e dal vivo.
