George Harrison vinyl box set, extended book announced

George Harrison - The Vinyl Collection

The Harrison family is proud to announce the release of George Harrison – The Vinyl Collection (UMe) box set featuring all of George Harrison’s solo studio albums in one collection for the first time on February 24th to mark his 74th birthday.

The vinyl box set includes all twelve of Harrison’s studio albums with exact replicas of the original release track listing and artwork. Also included in the box set are Harrison’s classic live album Live In Japan (2 LP), and two 12″ single picture discs of ‘When We Was Fab’ and ‘Got My Mind Set On You’. All the discs are 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and are housed in a high-quality two-piece rigid slipcase box. The original analog master tapes were used for the new remasters and were cut at the legendary Capitol studios to ensure exceptional audio quality throughout. The individual albums from the collection will also be available separately, with All Things Must Pass as a limited edition title.

George Harrison’s I Me Mine was originally published by the specialist book publisher, Genesis Publications in 1980. It became the first of many collaborations between George and Genesis founder, Brian Roylance. In conversation with his friend and former Beatles press officer Derek Taylor, and in a first-person commentary that accompanies his songs, Harrison’s own words recount everything from his upbringing in Liverpool, to early Beatlemania, his spirituality and philosophy. This new extended version of the book now spans the complete length of Harrison’s career in music, told in his words and through 141 songs with hand written lyric sheets faithfully reproduced in full color. Now stretching to 632 pages it features lyrics to more than 50 songs not previously included, as well as new photographs, many unpublished until now.

John Schneider announces ‘Ruffled Skirts’ album

John Schneider

John Schneider has graced television screens, made an impact in the film community, and delighted the country music world for decades by eloquently delivering stories in a way no one has before. He landed his television debut in 1978 as Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard, starred as Jonathan Kent on the hit TV series Smallville, and is now playing the role of Judge Jim Cryer in the smash Tyler Perry hit, The Haves and the Have Nots.

Schneider is gearing up for his triumphant return to the country music scene with Ruffled Skirts, a near and dear album to him after his community was devastated by flooding twice in one year. In a matter of six months, the floods ravaged his studio which took in four feet of water destroying much of his film/recording studio. Sitting in the recording studio with no furniture, Schneider began arranging songs like “How Do You Stop The Water,” “The Cajun Navy” and “Every Friday Night” before enlisting in songwriters Scott Innis, Phil Redrow, and Clifton Brown to help bring the songs to life.

Instead of sitting in songwriting sessions, Schneider and producing partner Alicia Allain sent photos and video to each songwriter of the devastation that Louisiana endured to eloquently capture the monstrosity of the flooding through music. The songs came to life when Schneider recorded each track in his bare studio creating a perfect space to take in the right sound. Schneider then enlisted in LeRoux’s keyboardist/vocalist Nelson Blanchard to mix and master the ten track album.

In addition to Blanchard, the album also features Louisiana’s royalty including LeRoux (‘New Orleans Lady’), Jo-El Sonnier, Doug Kershaw, David Hyde and Randy Carpenter. Ruffled Skirts, which Schneider so eloquently named in reference to the single-wide and double-wide trailers that came through after the flood, is expected to drop January 27th.

“This is the most raw, emotional and in your face music I have ever had the pleasure of singing,” Schneider says.

Outside of Schneider’s tumultuous acting career, he has swooned the country music world with hits like, “It’s Now or Never,” which still to do this day remains the top charting Elvis cover of all time, “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know,” “Country Girls,” “Last Thing I Needed Tonight” and “What’s A Memory Like You (Doing In A Love Like This)” which all charted number one on the US Country charts.

In addition, Schneider’s Memory Like You his first album to debut at number one on the US Country chart and still a classic to this day. His latest album, Home For Christmas released in 2010 features The Dukes of Hazzard co-star, Tom Wopat in an 18 track holiday album that mixes seasonal standards like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Silver Bells” alongside humorous, left-field tracks like “Johnny, It’s Cold Outside,” a bromantic reinterpretation of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

David Bowie ‘Sound & Vision’ 40th anniversary detailed

David Bowie - Sound And Vision 40th Anniversary

February 10th sees the release of the latest special limited David Bowie 7″ picture disc, the 40th anniversary edition of Sound And Vision via Parlophone.

Originally released in the UK on February 11th, 1977, Sound And Vision was taken from the groundbreaking album Low, the first of the so-called “Berlin Trilogy” of albums. The song gave its name to Bowie’s anthology boxed set and it’s accompanying greatest hits tour in 1990 and is the only track actually performed by him in his stage play Lazurus.

The A-side features a brand new remaster of the track and the flip side sees the first physical release of the 2013 remix of the song. The stripped back remix by Sonjay Prabhakar was originally done for a Sony Experia advertisement and utilizes the original lead vocals and Mary Hopkin’s backing vocal with a new piano part.

The Doors announce 50th anniversary of debut album

The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

50 years ago today (Jan 4th) in 1967, The Doors broke through to the other side for the first time with its eponymous debut on Elektra Records. The Doors would go on to sell millions of copies and made stars of John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, and Jim Morrison. Today, the album is widely considered to be one of the all-time-classic rock and roll debuts.

To celebrate this landmark recording’s 50th anniversary, the band will release The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. This 3 CD/LP set will be available on March 31st for a list price of $64.98. In addition, the music will also be available digitally.

To coincide with this, today will be declared “Day Of The Doors” in the city of Los Angeles. The proclamation will be made this afternoon by Mayor Eric Garcetti and Councilmember Mike Bonin during a public event at the intersection of Pacific and Windward Avenues, the location of the iconic “Venice” sign. Founding Doors members John Densmore and Robby Krieger will be on hand at the event as will family members of the late Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison.

Packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book, The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition includes a remastered version of the album’s original stereo mix, available on CD for the first time in a decade and remastered for the first time in nearly 30 years. The album’s original mono mix was also remastered for this set and is making its CD debut here. An LP-version of the mono mix is also included. The third disc features live performance from The Matrix in San Francisco recorded just weeks after The Doors was released. Music journalist David Fricke provides detailed liner notes for the set, which includes a selection of rare and previously unseen photographs.

The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition offers a rare opportunity to hear the band on the verge of superstardom with live performances recorded during a March 7, 1967 show at the Matrix in San Francisco. The Matrix recordings heard on this deluxe edition were sourced from the recently discovered, original tapes, previously thought to be lost. The Matrix recordings originally released in 2008 were from a third-generation source, so the sound quality of the versions debuting here is second to none.

Packed with electrifying performance, the disc contains live versions of eight tracks on The Doors, including “Twentieth Century Fox,” “The Crystal Ship” and “Back Door Man.”

Colony House announces ‘Only The Lonely’ for Jan 13th

Colony House - Only The Lonely

Nashville-based indie pop/rock band Colony House will be releasing their second album Only The Lonely on January 13th on Descendant/RCA Records on CD and LP. The band will be performing their single “You & I” on Late Night with Seth Meyers on January 11th and The TODAY Show on January 16th.

The band recently announced their headlining 37 city North American tour, kicking off on February 15th in St. Louis and will stop in major cities across the U.S. and Canada including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and more. Tickets, VIP packages and more, available at their website.

Elle Magazine calls the band’s sound “surf-poppy and anthemic” and Celeb Mix wrote of their recent tour with the Mowgli’s “…one of the best shows we’ve seen this year… With a setlist that include the eclectic styles of their first and second albums, the band really do have their eyes set on leaving their mark on the indie rock scene.” Volume wrote “Colony reminded fans of what a real rock show was. …they brought the party and the feel-good vibes.” And the Louisville Cardinal raved “Black Keys meets Death Cab For Cutie aesthetic…Colony House captivated.”

Colony House has released several tracks from their forthcoming album leading into release. “This Beautiful Life” premiered on Baeble Music, who raved, “Soaring vocal harmonies begin to join in to make for a chilling, almost spiritual hymn…‘This Beautiful Life’ is a stripped down acoustic song with little polish and a ton of authenticity… it’s looking like this [Only The Lonely] is going to be very raw, personal, and fun.” “This Beautiful Life” follows the release of album track “Lonely,” which premiered on Paste.

The video for “You & I,” co-directed by lead singer/guitarist Caleb Chapman premiered on noisey.com who wrote: “The video …descends into chaos, instant replay smacks, freeze frame moments, egos colliding, slapstick horseplay…musically the Tennessee boys work a bright brand of indie-pop that’s entirely at odds with the physical angst manifested in this video. But it’s this very juxtaposition that makes this video so amusing to watch.” Caleb also co-directed the video for “You Know It,” which premiered on Consequence of Sound who described the band’s sound as “twangy surf pop.” Fans that pre-order the album will receive all four tracks instantly.

Producer Peter Katis known for his work with Interpol, The National, Frightened Rabbit, and more worked with the band on many of the album tracks on Only The Lonely, as well as notable mixer Vance Powell (Jack White, Elle King, Beck).

Only The Lonely is the follow up to Colony House’s debut album When I Was Younger which featured their single “Silhouettes,” which has enjoyed over 10 million streams on Spotify and was the #1 most played track on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation for four months straight. The band has previously performed on CONAN, Late Night with Seth Meyers and VH1 Big Morning Buzz, and has been featured by NPR Music, Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, and Noisey, among many others.

Colony House is brothers Caleb Chapman and Will Chapman, Scott Mills, and Parke Avery.
