The inevitable 50th anniversary edition of the Band’s classic second album offers reasons to upgrade. Plus, vintage live material from Simon & Garfunkel and an anthology from Australia’s Paul Kelly.
Nearly half a century after Hendrix’s historic two-night stand at the Fillmore East, the performances have been released in full. Plus, Rebecca Turner and reissues from Modern English.
A 14-CD collection of his 1975–2001 studio albums is uneven but contains more than enough standouts to justify its bargain price.
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.
