The last few years have been a treat for fans of 70s prog band Gentle Giant. A few of their albums have been remixed by the legendary Steven Wilson and given the 5.1 treatment, while elsewhere, the vaults have been raided for huge amounts of demo and live material.
Following last year’s multi-disc box set of ‘Brave’, Marillion are now gearing up to release the follow up (and fan favourite) ‘Afraid of Sunlight’ in a similar configuration.
While the band are playing their cards very close to their collective chests in terms of actual details, they have revealed that the blu ray will include various mixes of the album along with all of the bonus materials from the previous 2CD set…and SEVENTEEN unreleased tracks.
A couple of days ago, it was confirmed there would be a multi-disc ‘Later Years’ box set coming from Pink Floyd. Although the general contents were known – with some differing reports regarding the inclusion of ‘The Division Bell’, somewhat oddly – the final contents have now been confirmed.
A newly remixed vinyl version of Pink Floyd’s 1987 LP ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ is something that’s been long rumoured for release at some point, but fans are soon going to receive more than they ever hoped for with a multi-disc, multi-format box set rounding up a whole host of late 80s recordings.
Dubbed ‘Later Years’, the huge box is set to truly be the ultimate release for fans of the band’s first post-Waters work.
Although Fall fans probably expected reissues of ‘Totale’s Turns (It’s Now Or Never)’, ‘Grotesque (After The Gramme)’ and ‘Slates’ to appear before the end of 2019, this October will actually see something a little further ahead making up volume three of Cherry Red’s extensive Fall Sound Archives reissue series.
