This year marks the 40th anniversary of the final concert by Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, and Robbie Robertson as The Band. The performance, appropriately dubbed “The Last Waltz,” took place at the Winterland Theater in San Francisco, with the boys in The Band joined by a wide variety of guest stars, including – but not limited to – Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, and Neil Young. Thankfully, the whole affair was filmed, with director Martin Scorsese delivering the end result to movie theaters in April 1978.

If you were a fan of the 1996 film adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel Trainspotting, you’re not the only one. It’s a funny, frantic, and occasionally horrifying tale of friendship and drug addiction that helped cement the reputation of Danny Boyle as a great director and helped turn Ewan McGregor into a proper movie star. With the film’s sequel – yes, it’s called Trainspotting 2 – at long last completed and finally set to hit theaters in early 2017, Rhino has dipped into the archives to reissue TRAINSPOTTING: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE on vinyl.

For those of you who follow music news, Stevie Nicks’ latest tour – one which finds her on the road with The Pretenders – has been widely reported as one for the ages, with Stevie’s set list stretching all the way back to a track from the long out-of-print BUCKINGHAM-NICKS album. In other words, if she’s coming to your town, you won’t want to miss her. But if she’s not coming to your neck of the woods, we’ve still got a way for you to have a whole lottta Stevie in your life: Rhino has just reissued her first two albums – BELLA DONNA and THE WILD HEART – as deluxe editions, featuring newly remastered audio as well as a whole bunch of bonus tracks.

Okay, okay, we know “Doing a 140” doesn’t have even remotely the same ring as “Doing a 180,” but what can we tell you? These particular reissues are on 140-gram vinyl rather than 180-gram vinyl, so we felt like it was better to be factual. It’s just the right thing to do, you know? (Also, it’s the legal thing to do, so there’s that as well.)
