An expanded edition of The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ and an anthology of influential country music are among my eight picks for outstanding box sets released in 2019.
A 50th anniversary edition of the Doors’ ‘The Soft Parade,’ plus albums from Jerry Leger and Swans and a book about Specialty Records.
An exceptional Tim Buckley concert surfaces and a Chuck Berry film comes to Blu-ray. Plus material from Elliott Murphy’s archives and a Gene Clark cult favorite.
Bruce Springsteen releases live versions of the songs on his recent ‘Western Stars’ CD. Also: an anthology collects singles from the defunct Rampart Records label, Cajun music from the Revelers, and a 1972 concert from New Riders of the Purple Sage.
The Rolling Stones dig into the vaults to offer an anniversary edition of the classic ‘Let It Bleed’ plus a concert from their 1998 world tour.
The latest volume of Bob Dylan’s bootleg series features must-hear collaborations with Johnny Cash. Plus new albums from Kinky Friedman and Moody Little Sister, and a Steve Goodman reissue.
