Del Amitri Reissues, Free Tickets For You

In an interview with ATV pal R. Todd Richards, Del Amitri frontman Justin Currie spoke about his latest solo disc, Lower Reaches, which was released earlier this year.

He also indicated that there are plans to put out expanded reissues of the band's last two albums, Some Other Sucker's Parade and Can You Do Me Good?

For those of you who already picked up the expanded reissues of Waking Hours, Change Everything and Twisted, you'll know that this is good news. Those reissues were packed with nearly all of the appropriate B-sides from the period...and even as somebody who had personally accumulated all of those B-sides, it was nice to have them collected in one place.

October will bring the release of Into The Mirror, the first official live album from Del Amitri -- you can pre-order signed copies (autographed by Justin and Iain) from the band's website.

Currie launched his U.S. solo tour on Sunday with a show in Nashville that was apparently broadcast on the radio (and I'm looking for a copy -- do you have one?).

He'll be out on the road for a few weeks and you can check out the tour dates, including a long awaited Cleveland date tonight at the Music Box Supper Club.

Speaking of that, if you'd like to go see that Music Box show tonight --- drop me an email here with "Justin Currie Cleveland Concert" in the subject line for your chance to win.  This contest will expire not too long after you read this, so move quickly and good luck!
