A long time ago – we’re talking way back in the 1990s – Led Zeppelin released BBC SESSIONS, a two-disc set feature live recordings from the band’s appearances on BBC radio between 1969 and 1971. It was, as you might recall, very well received by fans and critics alike, earning rave reviews and racking up double-platinum sales figures. But here’s the thing: if you picked up a copy back then or, indeed, at any point since then, we’ve got some news for you: you can now unofficially refer to it as THE ALMOST-COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS.

Rhino has made it a point to reissue classic albums on 180-gram vinyl on a regular basis. This is the latest to get that treatment.

During the course of her career to date, Madonna has released a handful of best-of collections. The first was 1990’s brilliantly-titled THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION, a set which earned an official sequel in 2001 when GHV2was released, and in 2009 she issued CELEBRATION, a two-disc, 36-track retrospective which received near-universal acclaim.

When the Traveling Wilburys first came together, the amount of ink dedicated to the all-star group was likely enough to fill a few thousand swimming pools, and deservedly so, given the amount of star power within the group’s lineup. Yes, the late ‘80s was a glorious time for all-star collaborations, which is why we want to make sure that you haven’t forgotten about another highly-impressive partnership which took place only a year earlier within the world of country music: Trio, an all-star collective featuring Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris.

Gabba gabba hey, have you heard that this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Ramones’ self-titled debut album? For those who weren’t there in ’76 with their ears pealed upon the LP’s release, you can’t really wrap your head around just how much it changed the musical status quo for these “bruddas” from Forest Hills to suddenly show up and rip their way through punk-pop numbers the way they did. The songs were as catchy as they were loud and raw, and they transformed more than a few kids into full-fledged punk rockers as a result of the wondrous material they delivered on that album, and its iconic status is why we’ve released a special 40th anniversary edition of Ramones.

When Faith No More regrouped to release last year’s SOL INVICTUS, the band’s first new studio album in nearly two decades, we here at Rhino celebrated the occasion by delivering deluxe reissues of their albums THE REAL THING and ANGEL DUST. In an effort to spread the wealth, we opted to wait a little while before dropping the next two albums in the deluxe-reissue series, but now it’s time to kick things off again: as of tomorrow, you’ll be able to pick up the 2-CD reissues of KING FOR A DAY…FOOL FOR A LIFETIME and ALBUM OF THE YEAR. Better yet, you’ll also have the opportunity to pick up double-LP versions of the albums on 180-gram vinyl.
