Release Round-Up: Week of August 6
Four decades after the King decamped to the famous Memphis studio to cut some country-fried soul sides, this triple-disc box set presents the fruits of those labors, greatly re-contextualized from the original albums that featured these sessions (1973′s Raised on Rock/For Ol’ Times Sake and 1974′s Good Times).
BBR’s latest features the fifth and sixth albums by the future disco queen Gaynor, remastered and expanded. Hits here include a cover of “You’re All I Need to Get By” and some tune called “I Will Survive.”
Echo & The Bunnymen, Crocodiles (Weatherbox)
