- There’s some new info to post about Revolutions: The Very Best of Steve Winwood, the upcoming four-disc Steve Winwood box that may or may not be as good as the last Winwood box. This comes from a comment by an admin on Winwood’s official Web site. Also, note that the Amazon selling price is a not-terrible $39.98:
All the material in this box set was transferred from the original analogue master tapes at 24-bit, 192k resolution in 2010 using the highest quality Prism A-D conversion.
The albums “About Time” and “Nine Lives” have been entirely re-mixed and re-mastered, and these new mixes will appear for the first time on this box set.
Steve has recorded a brand-new version of “Spanish Dancer” which will also be exclusively available on the Revolutions Box Set coming June 7th 2010.
- Universal has another catalogue title on the slate for May 18: a two-disc special edition of India.Arie’s Voyage to India (2002). No firm word on the extras yet.
- A poster on our favorite reissue-centric message board reports that Rhino Handmade’s new collector’s edition of The Stooges (1969) has a pretty glaring technical error: each disc is labelled incorrectly (Disc 1 is labelled as Disc 2 and vice versa). The label is ready to ship replacement discs and has also given buyers an upcoming promo code to another upcoming release. We won’t spoil it here, but you can pretty much figure out which out-of-print Rhino Handmade set won this year’s earlier poll (and will thus go back into print) if you click the link above.
