The Doors’ ‘L.A. Woman’ 5-disc set cancelled

January 2, 2012

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

Plans for an ambitious 5-disc super deluxe edition of the Doors’ 1971 album L.A. Woman have been scrapped, according to reports, because the retail price-tag for the set’s planned hard box packaging would not make it commercially viable.

A 2-disc 40th Anniversary special edition will now be released on January 24, followed later this year by a more affordable 3-disc limited edition box set comprising previously unreleased alternate tracks and outtakes. With few or no repeated tracks, the separate 2-disc and 3-disc sets would more or less equal the intended 5-disc version.

Johnny Cash Sun Records era celebrated on new 2CD compilation, I Walk the Line

October 5, 2011

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

A new 2CD compilation, titled I Walk the Line, takes a definitive look at Johnny Cash’s legendary three-year spell with Sam Phillips’ Sun Records between 1955 and 1958.

The 40-track collection showcases the raw beginnings of the stark and simple sound that would become Cash’s trademark in later years. Although he is primarily remembered as a country artist, the two hours of music on these CDs provide a reminder that Cash’s earliest songs also spanned genres such as rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll and gospel.
