There's nothing like a picture disc to help music fans see an old release in a new light, and since we've recently released David Bowie's Five Years box set, the idea of putting out a picture disc from a song contained within that set seemed like way too perfect an opportunity to let it slip by. After we'd come to that conclusion, we thought, “Well, hey, if we're going to do that, then why not celebrate the song that first put him on the pop charts in a big, big way?”

In November of last year, just in the nick of time, we made the year of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band fans by releasing Sun, Zoom, Spark: 1970 to 1972, a limited edition set which featured the good Captain's three albums from that period of time, along with a bonus disc featuring 14 previously unissued outtakes from that era. We weren't kidding about that whole “limited edition” thing, but if you've been grumbling because you still really wanted to pick up the albums, then grumble no more, because all three of those albums are now available independently. Of course, you still have to get a copy of the set to obtain the bonus disc, but you can't win 'em all, you know?

Drummers don’t come much more legendary than Billy Cobham, whose work during the late ‘60s, throughout the ‘70s, and into the ‘80s and beyond helped define the concept of jazz fusion. That’s not to say that Cobham has ever limited himself solely to one genre, but that’s certainly the stuff that helped make him into a legend.

Although he first started getting major props when he and John McLaughlin co-founded Mahavishnu Orchestra, Cobham’s post-Orchestra work is the focus of The Atlantic Years: 1973-1978, an 8-disc collection which serves not just as an instant introduction to Cobham’s solo career but also provides jazz novices with a history lesson of what was going on in the jazz fusion world in the ‘70s. In other words, it’s a great set for a number of reasons, and it sounds great, too.
