Other reissues & archival releases
Rufus Thomas: “Bear Cat” b/w “Walking in the Rain”
The Prisonaires: “Just Walking in the Rain” b/w “Baby Please”
Johnny Cash: “Get Rhythm” b/w “I Walk the Line”
First three releases (shown above) in a new partnership between Sun Records and Jack White’s Third Man Records to reissue classic Sun 45-rpm 7-inch vinyl singles. The first two are from 1953. The Cash is from 1956 — and yes, “I Walk the Line” was the B-side. Available from thirdmanrecords.com.
Wear Your Love Like Heaven
The Hurdy Gurdy Man
The first two are from 1967, the last is from ’68, and all are reissued on mono vinyl. (Wear Your Love Like Heaven was the first LP in the double album A Gift from a Flower to a Garden. Both Wear and the other LP, For Little Ones, were also released separately in the U.S. at the time.)
Townes Van Zandt:
High, Low and In Between
The Late Great Townes Van Zandt
Reissues of the troubadour’s fifth and sixth albums, from 1971 and ’72. Both include new liner notes by Colin Escott.
Come: 11:11 (Matador)
Also known as Eleven : Eleven, this is the 1993 debut of Thalia Zedek’s band with Chris Brokaw. Long out of print, it now gets a 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, with a bonus disc recorded live at the Vermonstress Festival on October 10, 1992.
Queen: On Fire — Live at the Bowl (Eagle Vision)
The National Bowl in Milton Keynes, England, that is. This complete concert film (on two DVDs) was shot on June 5, 1982, in the midst of the Hot Space tour. So there’s a focus on midperiod material; only seven of the 25 selections date from A Day at the Races or before. Disc 2 has band member interviews, a photo gallery, and highlights from two other tour stops — including, fittingly enough, “Teo Torriatte” in Tokyo.
