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.

Cliff Richard may stage Las Vegas show with Olivia Newton-John

November 1, 2011

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

Sir Cliff Richard is reportedly in talks with Olivia Newton-John to stage a series of shows together in Las Vegas.

Over the past six decades, the 71-year-old singer has had hits all over the world and has sold over 250 million records worldwide. But he has so far failed to crack the American market (although his single ‘Living Doll’ promised much when it reached No. 30 on the US charts in 1959).

Sir Cliff is hoping that a residency in Las Vegas will increase his chances of success with US audiences.

“Acts like Elvis and Little Richard were the reason I started, so it would mean a great deal to have at least one success over there,” Sir Cliff recently told Women’s Weekly magazine. “I’ve had nine Top 30 hits in America but never an identity. If I could just have one big hit I’d feel so much satisfaction.”

He added: “Olivia Newton-John and I have talked about joining forces to find a Las Vegas venue to perform at. Elton John recently told me: ‘I can’t understand why you never cracked it’. And I can’t either. It’s the land of rock ‘n’ roll – like Wimbledon is to tennis.”
