While The Second Disc prides itself on connecting people to reissues and box sets they can keep on their shelves, it’s no secret that listening audiences are also digital – catalogue music lovers, too – and our passion is connecting people to music from the past that they might adore. So we’ve introduced a new feature: The Weekend Stream, which focuses on hidden gems that recently made it to digital channels that might make your playlists a little brighter!
Well, it’s happening! As we reported earlier this month, Blackground Records has, against all odds and after years of fan wishes, begun rolling out its catalogue for physical and digital consumption – starting with the late Aaliyah’s sophomore album. (It’s got a bonus track: Timbaland’s Groove Mix of the track “Hot Like Fire.”)
A new digital-only reissue of the band’s fourth album – their first Top 10 and the first of five Grammy nominees in the metal category. It now includes three live bonus tracks from the band’s sole concert of 2020.
Jerry Goldsmith, The Omen (Deluxe Edition) / Michael Giacchino, Star Trek / Star Trek Into Darkness / Star Trek Beyond (Deluxe Editions) (Varese Sarabande)
An exciting thing for film score enthusiasts is Varese Sarabande’s increasing commitment to offering digital downloads on some of their limited edition catalogue titles – particularly in high-resolution WAV or FLAC files. Their most recent titles include Jerry Goldsmith’s legendary score to the horror classic The Omen and Michael Giacchino’s modern takes on the Star Trek reboot film trilogy.
