Coming September 30th 2014 a new Capitol Records box set is scheduled to be released to the public. I hope they release the albums in some nice sleeves with the artwork. The albums are: Heart, Bad Animals, Brigade, Rock the House Live and Desire Walks On. No information other than this… I’ll keep an eye out for more info. The picture was found at CD Universe.
Another new collectible on the horizon! Did you guess it? On October 14th Sony Legacy will release a new BOX SET with as yet unknown contents. The Heartlinker will be keeping you updated on this new release in this post.
First update: it has FOUR discs! And the title “The Box Set Series” suggests a simple catalog release with some extra’s in this fashion.
Update September 17th: Thank you Manny for reporting on the BBS!: Since Legacy/Sony are involved with this project, they tend to get the artists involved with their “Boxset Series'” ie. providing liner notes. Other boxsets released by Sony/Legacy in this series include hits, deep album cuts and alternative outtakes/b-sides.
Finally an update on this project that the Heartlinker reported about in 2011. More than a dozen Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be featured on “The Art of Paul McCartney,” including, Bob Dylan, Kiss, Billy Joel and Heart. The 34-song tribute album pays tribute to the former Beatle and veteran solo superstar. Due out Nov. 18, the album features songs from throughout McCartney’s illustrious career performed by a diverse array of artists. [...] The album can now be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon. It will be available in several formats, including as a 34-track CD and vinyl album, and in digital form. There’s also a 42-track deluxe edition, which adds on bonus tracks by rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson, The Cure singer Robert Smith, Ronnie Spector and others, along with a DVD documentary about the making of the album, hardbound books and more.
Heart contributions on the track list are:
- Band On The Run – Heart &
- Letting Go – Heart
Robert Plant (September 8th 2014) about Heart’s 2012 Kennedy Center “Stairway to Heaven”:
“I was really moved that somebody had taken a song which had been brandished and curtsied and cajoled and loved through 40 years, and they’d given it such a great makeover,” he says. “I heard it in a totally different way, and I was really amazed that it could have a life outside of anything I expected.”
