Remember how last month we offered up a 35th anniversary reissue of Deep Purple’s Come Taste the Band and had to explain that it wasn’t actually the 35th anniversary of the album but, rather, that it had come out at that time in the UK and was only just now coming out in the US?

You may recall that it was only a short while ago that we reissued Linda Ronstadt’s first two Spanish-language albums: Canciones de Mi Padre and Mas Canciones. Now it’s time to bring the third one back into print as well.

When Allen Toussaint died of a heart attack on November 10 of last year, it was a shock to just about everyone, since the famed pianist had still been extremely active, to the point where he’d been set to perform a sold-out show in London on Nov. 15 and to perform a benefit concert with Paul Simon in New Orleans less than a month later. While his absence is still felt even now, we hope this news will help fill at least some small portion of the void: The Complete Warner Recordings, which has been out of print since the sellout of its limited-edition Rhino Handmade release, is now available once more.

In the long and storied history of the Grateful Dead, it’s fair to say that the band had quite a few years which might be up for contention in the field of Best Year Ever, but if you put it to a vote amongst Deadheads, you’d almost certainly find a strong showing from 1978. This stands to reason: they released Shakedown Street, they played over 80 shows, and of those 80 shows, three of them were their legendary performances at Egypt’s famed pyramids of Gizah.

Several years back, Rhino celebrated the career of The Cure by reissuing deluxe 2-disc editions of all seven of the albums released by the band between 1979 and 1987. If you know anything about their output during that era, then you know just how much amazing and influential music that is, but although the albums have remained available digitally over the years, these deluxe editions haven’t been readily available for awhile. Now, however, they’re back, and they’re…well, actually, they’re not better than ever, because they’re effectively the same versions that we put out before. But when you consider how good they were to begin with, then you don’t really have anything to complain about, now, do you?
