- The Sex Pistols' controversial single "God Save the Queen" is getting repressed for its 35th anniversary on May 28. Universal Music Catalogue in the U.K. will re-release the single, a month after repressing "Anarchy in the U.K." for Record Store Day and four months before reissuing the band's Never Mind The Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols. It is unknown if the single, released alongside the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, will feature "No Feeling," the original B-side on the extremely rare A&M pressing of the single, or "Done You No Wrong" from the subsequent Virgin reissue. (It's worth noting that band frontman John Lydon has spoken out against the single release, saying it "undermines what The Sex Pistols stood for."
- The Los Angeles Times reports that the final recordings from country legend Waylon Jennings will see a release on September 11. Goin' Down Rockin': The Last Recordings features 12 unreleased tracks partially recorded by Jennings and bassist Robby Turner before his death in 2002, augmented with newly-recorded overdubs by former collaborators including Tony Joe White (who co-wrote one track on the album). Time Life's Saguaro Road Records will distribute.
Marshall Gooch says
There's a typo, the B-side title should be "Done You No Wrong."
I had to read the Sex Pistols news twice: I couldn't understand why Universal would be repressing their own reissue, then I understood what you meant. Maybe saying "re-pressing" would be a little clearer, lol.
