Reissue News: Yes and Howard Jones

Here's some news on a couple of exciting reissues that are on the way.  A few days ago, I saw a brief blurb that the previously import-only The 12" Album release from Howard Jones would be getting a U.S. release via Wounded Bird.  This made me think of Action Replay, the other EP of 12" remixes from Jones that has been available as an MP3 download for a couple of years now.  Just as I was about to click the purchase button, I found even better news from Mike at the excellent The Second Disc website.  Jones is preparing a limited edition box set release that will contain both The 12" Album and Action Replay (making its first CD appearance) plus a bonus disc of additional remixes that aren't on either release.  Additionally, Jones is preparing a CD and DVD release of the full album performances that he did last year of Dream Into Action and Human's Lib.  Visit the HoJo website for more details on all of these releases (and Mike has plenty of thoughts here).

The remix box will be the second entry in a series of planned reissues for Howard's entire catalog.  As the proud recipient of last year's Dream Into Action/Human's Lib remastered box set (thanks to great girlfriend for great Christmas gift!), I can attest that these releases are must have material.  The DIA/HL box set is limited to 1000 hand numbered copies (nearly sold out, last time that I checked!) and the quality of the packaging is unbelievable and it was nice to get the bonus disc of vintage live material from the era.  It's safe to assume that the upcoming box set will also be a similarly limited number of units.  (On a side note, the remasters of DIA and HL are now available in the UK via Itunes and other digital providers.)

Wish list?  I'd love to see DVD releases of some of the '80s HoJo concert material that previously saw release on VHS and Laserdisc.

Regardless, I'm happy that Jones has been able to license the material from Warner to do these reissues.


Onto a proggier bit of news:

Details have finally been revealed for the forthcoming DVD/CD release of live Yes material from the Union tour (previously available briefly on Laserdisc and VHS in Japan).   The Youtube sample looks great to me and I'm excited to see that there will be some great bonus material as well! (I'm pretty sure that I have that Denver show that is included on the second disc.)  Check out a clip and full DVD content details after the jump.

Here's the official rundown from the press release:

Gonzo are proud to announce the release of Yes UNION in a Special Limited Edition Deluxe Package.

This concert film of the band was made on August 8th 1991 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. It was subsequently only released in Japan on video and then on the briefly new format of Laser Disc. This fantastic film however, was not widely available for a long time and has since become a much sought after artifact amongst Yes fans.

This exclusive deluxe package includes the original film from the Shoreline Amphitheatre (taken directly from the master tapes), reproduction tour program, deluxe "digi-pak" packaging, replica tour passes, along with a debut release of the soundtrack from the Shoreline Amphitheatre show, as a two CD set. If that wasn't enough, there also a bonus DVD featuring some bootleg footage of the band. It must be stressed however that the bootleg footage is raw and the sound and picture quality is not to the standard of normal commercial releases, but has been included for collectors and completists.

This disc also includes some bonus audio tracks, three of which are 5.1 and four are stereo mixes. The whole package comes housed in a slipcase with artwork approved by Roger Dean and is an official Yes release.

This deluxe package is strictly only available as a Limited Edition via this web site, no shops (not even Amazon) will be carrying this deluxe edition and as such will be sold on a first come, first served basis. There is stock in our warehouse waiting to be shipped the same day orders are received. Get yours now or be disappointed later!
