Coming September 30th 2014 a new Capitol Records box set is scheduled to be released to the public. I hope they release the albums in some nice sleeves with the artwork. The albums are: Heart, Bad Animals, Brigade, Rock the House Live and Desire Walks On. No information other than this… I’ll keep an eye out for more info. The picture was found at CD Universe.
Added September 23rd 2014: “This budget-priced box set from classic rock and pop greats Heart rounds up five of the band’s mid- to late-period albums, including their 1985 eponymous eighth long-player (“These Dreams,” “What About Love”), 1987’s Bad Animals (“Alone,” “Who Will You Run To”), 1990’s Brigade (“All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You”), 1991’s Rock the House Live!, and 1993’s Desire Walks On (“Will You Be There [In the Morning]“). ~James Christopher Monger” (CD Universe)
Another new collectible on the horizon! Did you guess it? On October 14th Sony Legacy will release a new BOX SET with as yet unknown contents. The Heartlinker will be keeping you updated on this new release in this post.
First update: it has FOUR discs! And the title “The Box Set Series” suggests a simple catalog release with some extra’s in this fashion.
Update September 17th: Thank you Manny for reporting on the BBS!: Since Legacy/Sony are involved with this project, they tend to get the artists involved with their “Boxset Series'” ie. providing liner notes. Other boxsets released by Sony/Legacy in this series include hits, deep album cuts and alternative outtakes/b-sides.
Finally an update on this project that the Heartlinker reported about in 2011. More than a dozen Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be featured on “The Art of Paul McCartney,” including, Bob Dylan, Kiss, Billy Joel and Heart. The 34-song tribute album pays tribute to the former Beatle and veteran solo superstar. Due out Nov. 18, the album features songs from throughout McCartney’s illustrious career performed by a diverse array of artists. [...] The album can now be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon. It will be available in several formats, including as a 34-track CD and vinyl album, and in digital form. There’s also a 42-track deluxe edition, which adds on bonus tracks by rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson, The Cure singer Robert Smith, Ronnie Spector and others, along with a DVD documentary about the making of the album, hardbound books and more.
Heart contributions on the track list are:
- Band On The Run – Heart &
- Letting Go – Heart
