Description:

Third album in, and The Strypes look as if they have finally broken their teenage r&b habit and developed into a band full of the joys of adulthood. Going from what is essentially proto-punk to the cannier end of the class of 1978/’79 (Squeeze, The Jam, early Elvis Costello and the Attractions, The Pretenders) seems a natural progression, and it is to The Strypes’ credit that they have advanced with such flair. While they’re still in thrall to their influences, what’s different here is that the songwriting comes from a level of serious experience. Grin and Bear It emits shades of Squeeze (“she took a test when she was late, moved into the new estate . . .”), while Easy Riding is a snappy Nick Lowe offcut. So much for growing pains — it seems coming of age wasn’t too difficult, after all. thestrypes.com

Description:

UK Edition, 3CD. This set pays tribute to Elvis Presley’s first recordings made for the RCA label in 1956. The 172-page book focuses on each of Elvis’ studio recording sessions during his first year of national stardom – from the first one in January, held in Nashville, then later in New York, before finishing his final session of the year in Hollywood in September. The full and comprehensive text is complemented by rare and previously unseen photographs and pieces of documentation. The 3CDs contain the complete archival master and session studio recordings of Elvis Presley from 1956, along with bonus interviews. All 90 tracks have been remastered and restored to their original sound quality. Also for the first time on CD is the complete ‘The Truth About Me’ from an original US 45rpm flexi-disc. Although this has been claimed complete by FTD and other past official releases, they all had a missing sentence that was on the original disc. Included also are all the out-takes from this interview.

Description:

In a not-very-surprising move, Parlophone will issue the Record Store Day David Bowie live album Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles ’74) on CD next month.

This gig, from the so-called Philly Dogs Tour, was previously unreleased until last month and Cracked Actor was the best selling vinyl album on Record Store Day. As such, it quickly commanded high prices on eBay and the like. Fans should therefore be happy that this new two-CD set is being made widely available.

This release comes as a limited edition two-CD digipak, with a twelve page booklet featuring notes from the original show programme and a piece about the LA ‘Philly Dogs’ shows by Rolling Stone’s Richard Cromelin, from 10th October, 1974 (these weren’t featured in the vinyl package). A standard jewel case version will replace this limited digipak. Parlophone say that “the vinyl edition will not be re-pressed or re-released”.

Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles ’74) will be released as a two-CD set on 16 June 2017

“We worked with so many rad people on this album, but ended up with just the four of us in a basement at 4am trying to say something that mattered. Trying to write music that would help people feel they’re not alone, even if they’re angry or feeling lost. This video is our way of saying that we’re all in this together.” – John Gourley, lead singer
