Daily Specials-THURSDAY

 

 *Paul McCartney is set to reissue his first two albums he made after the 1981 dissolution of Wings. On Oct. 2, expanded versions of Tug of War and Pipes of Peace will be released in multiple configurations. Both will be available in two-CD Special Editions that add a bonus disc of demos and B-sides, and a Deluxe Edition that adds a DVD of music videos and other footage, a 112-page essay book and another 64-page book, as well as 180-gram two-LP vinyl sets with digital download cards. The package will also includes the original 1982 mix of the album. He’s putting out a Super Deluxe Edition, too, which is limited to 1,000 sets and comes in an acrylic slipcase with five hand-numbered photos from Linda McCartney’s collection. Tug of War contains McCartney’s smash duet with Stevie Wonder, “Ebony and Ivory,” and “Here Today,” which he wrote in the wake of John Lennon‘s death, and is now a regular part of McCartney’s set list. Pipes of Peace included another duet, “Say Say Say,” this time with Michael Jackson. Both albums were originally produced by George Martin.

 

*The recent departure of Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba‘s has left a void in the current lineup, but drummer Frank Ferrer says there are no hard feelings — and he promises Ashba’s departure won’t impact the group’s future plans. Ferrer shared the news during his appearance on the Geoff Lenox Show yesterday, admitting that even though there doesn’t seem to have been much direct contact between Axl Rose and the other members of GNR, everything is fine; as he put it. The group is looking to a 2016 round of new tour dates, but new music is still just a rumor.

 

* Janis Joplin‘s life and musical legacy will hit the big screen at the Venice Film Festival in September. The film, titled simply Janis and assembled by Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg, will include narration from Chan Marshall, AKA Cat Power, who “will read letters Joplin wrote to her friends and lovers.” Berg shared her enthusiasm in a press release, saying, “After attempting to get this film off the ground for seven years, I am ecstatic that the film is finally ready to be seen. This has been a labor of love, and I cannot wait to share Janis’ unique, intimate story with the world. Chan Marshall has delivered a beautiful, introspective voice of Janis’ by reading her letters.” Janis‘ arrival comes as work on a biopic starring Amy Adams as Joplin, as directed by Wild director Jean-Marc Vallee, seems to be getting into gear after the project ended up in studio limbo. Variety adds that the feature, which will include performance footage as well as new interviews, is being released with the blessing of the Joplin Estate.

Jethro Tull’s ‘A Passion Play’ Getting Deluxe Reissue Treatment

Jethro Tull, 'A Passion Play'
Chrysalis

Jethro Tull‘s 1973 album ‘A Passion Play’ is returning to stores this summer, with a fresh remastering job and loads of bonus material in tow.

Originally released in July 1973, ‘Passion’ served as the proper follow-up to 1972′s smash hit ‘Thick as a Brick,’ and found the band working overtime to come up with new material before a scheduled tour. The pressure was on after initial attempts to record a double LP at the Chateau d’Herouville in France ended in ruin.

Halford will need to cope with that British reserve a little more often in the near future; he can expect to hear a few more screams next month, when Priest’s new album ‘Redeemer of Souls‘ arrives in stores.

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford Explains ‘Metal God’ Trademark

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford made the news a few years back when word got out that he’d applied for a trademark covering his ‘Metal God’ nickname. During a recent appearance on the long-running BBC talk show ‘Later with Jools Holland,’ he opened up about the reasons why.

“I would never put myself on that pedestal,” explained Halford when Holland broached the subject. “That’s the title the fans started to give me after the famous ‘British Steel’ album, where we had ‘Breaking the Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight.’” Nevertheless, he added, “It’s something I really cherish, and I don’t want anybody else to be the Metal God but me.”
