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.

Given that they released a new album just about a year ago (MUSIC COMPLETE), it’s a little early to start hassling New Order about when they’re going to put out another new album, but to tide you over ‘til they decide to return to the studio, there’s a compilation arriving tomorrow that’s well worth your time: SINGLES, a 32-track collection of – you guessed it – New Order’s SINGLES.

Back in May, we proudly presented the 180-gram vinyl reissue of The Cure’s Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, along with the re-release of the deluxe CD reissues of the band’s studio albums from Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me all the way back to their debut, Three Imaginary Boys. Now we’re back, and we’ve reissued all of those early Cure albums on 180-gram vinyl, too, so here’s a quick reminder of the six different ways we’re providing you with some of the best (and gloomiest) LPs of the 1980s.

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.)

For all the press that The Monkees’ GOOD TIMES! album has been getting, the fact that the band has a very successful new LP shouldn’t overshadow the fact that this year marks the 50th anniversary of Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork first joining forces as recording artists and, yes, TV stars, too. To celebrate this fact as well as to help educate the youngsters whose first encounter with The Monkees is the GOOD TIMES! album, we’ve put together two best-of compilations tied to the guys hitting the big 5-0.
