This sublime new collection from Jasmine presents 24 songs examining love from all angles as only the legendary Judy Garland could have performed them. I Can’t Give You Anything But Love has been assembled by Garland scholar Lawrence Schulman (who also provides the excellent liner notes), and includes a live rendition of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II’s heart-rending “Why Was I Born?” from 1946 which is new to CD.
Barenaked Ladies, Stunt: 20th Anniversary Edition (Reprise/Rhino)
Barenaked Ladies revisit the band’s 1998 breakthrough album Stunt in a new CD/DVD edition with three audio bonus tracks (the outtakes “She’s On Time” and “Long Way Back Home,” first heard as hidden tracks on the limited edition version of the album, plus “Get in Line” from the soundtrack to the animated television series King of the Hill). The DVD includes The Stunt Tour and Barenaked in America, the 1999 documentary directed by longtime fan and Beverly Hills 90210 star Jason Priestley. The film features approximately 90 minutes of live and behind-the-scenes footage from the tour. This release marks its North American DVD debut. A vinyl version adds only the two outtakes. The physical editions aren’t available until September 28, but digital services will have the audio content today! Get more details here!
Good grief! Jazz great Vince Guaraldi is best known for his immortal scores for Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts animated television specials and first feature film, but the multi-faceted pianist and composer was a man of many talents. All of those – including his work for Peanuts – comes in the spotlight on this new 2-CD set boasting three full Guaraldi albums –Oh, Good Grief! (1968), The Eclectic Vince Guaraldi (1969), and Alma-Ville (1970). Three previously unreleased tracks – including covers of “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” and “The Beat Goes On” – round out this exciting collection which features liner notes by Guaraldi historian Derrick Bang.
Omnivore continues the Guaraldi celebration with a new reissue of Oh, Good Grief! remastered by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI on translucent red vinyl.
