In January 2018, it was announced that Led Zeppelin’s posthumous live release ‘How The West Was Won’ was to be given a reissue to coincide with the band’s 50th anniversary. Recorded at two US shows in 1972 and then spliced together to give the feeling of experiencing a complete show, it has rarely been cited as a fan favourite. Nevertheless, that’s not stopped it being re-issued on CD and also given a blu-ray and (prohibitively expensive) vinyl release for the first time.
Blending various singer-songwriter elements with a UK themed Americana style and more than a touch of adult pop, Ferris and Sylvester’s debut EP ‘The Yellow Line’ was very much a bright spark in 2017. After that release, it seemed to be a case of onward and upward for the duo, with an increasing social media presence and some great reviews for their follow up single – the decidedly pop-oriented ‘Better In Yellow’, released at the end of the year.
Philip Whitehead is a singer-songwriter from London whom over the past year or so has been releasing download independent singles. His last offering, ‘Paper Man’s Blues’ – released in November 2017 – was his best track to date, being an acoustic track that harked back to the personal nature of Bob Dylan’s classic ‘Girl From The North Country’ [streaming here]
In January 2018 it was announced that both The Beautiful South’s debut LP and Housemartins ‘London 0 Hull 4’ were to be reissued on vinyl. Classic albums both, but here at Real Gone we think that any Beautiful South deluxe edition CDs are long overdue. We’d like to take this opportunity to look at what might make up a box set of their 1996 best seller ‘Blue Is The Colour’.
It’s felt a long time coming, but today – January 26th, 2018 – sees the release of Marmozets’ much anticipated second LP, ‘Knowing What You Know Now’.
They’ve also released a new video for the single ‘Run With The Rhythm’, which you can see in full below.
The new release comes just ahead of a UK tour which kicks off on February 2nd in Cardiff.
