Hi-Res Distinctions Best New Reissue
Thirty years later, Paul Westerberg and the rest of The Replacements are having another shot at getting their sixth album right on Don’t Tell A Soul Redux. The revamp is part of a new box set, Dead Man's Pop, which also contains a live show and other rare goodies, including additional tracks from a session with Tom Waits and earlier, scrapped tracks recorded at Bearsville Studios. For the Redux mix, Matt Wallace, who originally co-produced Don't Tell a Soul along with the band, used a mix recorded during the 1988 Paisley Park sessions as source material. As might be expected, the polarizing late-'80s gloss is gone, replaced by a clearer, lively sonic approach with plenty of nuance: Acoustic guitars are more prominent throughout, and individual parts within songs (a blazing guitar line here, a crashing piano part there) are evident. This clarity also revealed that Don't Tell a Soul continued to build on Pleased To Meet Me's diversity; songs encompass a whimsical soul-pop shuffle ("Asking Me Lies"), an R.E.M.-esque anthem ("Darlin' One" and its towering, droning guitars) and swaggering Americana ("We'll Inherit the Earth"). In perhaps the boldest move of all, Don't Tell a Soul's tracklisting is completely shuffled around on the new version, with only leadoff track "Talent Show" and "We'll Inherit the Earth" in slot three maintaining their original positions. This sequencing tweak is brilliant, as the album now boasts a poignant emotional arc that starts with anxiety over band and career matters and ends with piercing personal confessions. © Annie Zaleski / Qobuz

A rock’n’roll tsunami! On stage, the Ramones never questioned themselves, shooting at everything that moved just to remind everyone of their unique style; one that was anchored in traditional rock’n’roll yet incorporated surf music and punk. With foolishness as their philosophy, teenage carelessness as their credo, supersonic guitars as their weapon of mass destruction, this profession of faith - binary in form and playful in content - gave birth to amphetamine-fuelled hymns of bubble-gum pop such as Blitzkrieg Bop, Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue and Judy Is A Punk. Recorded in 1977 at London’s Rainbow Theatre on New Year’s Eve, It’s Alive includes these hits and many others, going at 200 mph through their first three albums: Ramones (1976), Leave Home (1977) and Rocket to Russia (1977). The gang from Forest Hills in Queens pack in 28 tracks in less than an hour! To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of this live anthology from 1979, the Deluxe Edition proposes the original remastered album alongside a series of tracks recorded at other concerts during the same English tour in December 1977: the Top Rank in Birmingham on 28 th , Victoria Hall in Stoke-On-Trent on 29 th and the Friars in Aylesbury on 30 th . Without the frills of the studio versions (not that there were many in the first place), all the songs on It's Alive tap into that initial fury, which comes across as even more raw and effective. This 40 th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is supervised by Ed Stasium, the producer and sound engineer of the original album. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Previously unreleased albums from Miles Davis are few and far between. So this record, released by Warner Bros. and Rhino in September 2019, is exciting to say the least. Recorded in 1985, these pieces were not strictly written during the trumpeter’s heyday. That year, Miles shocked everybody by leaving Columbia, his record label for over 30 years, to join Warner. The move was all the more surprising given that over the preceding few years he had enjoyed commercial success thanks to The Man With the Horn (1981), Star People (1983), Decoy (1984) and the rather commercialised You're Under Arrest (1985). In October, at the age of 59, he began recording a new album entitled Rubberband in Los Angeles with producers Randy Hall and Zane Giles. During the sessions the trumpeter took his playing in a radically new direction, incorporating funk and soul grooves into his music. He even planned on recruiting Al Jarreau and Chaka Khan for the vocals. However, the album was never released and instead Miles Davis turned his attention to working on his famous Tutu with Marcus Miller, leaving Rubberband’s tracks unreleased for over three decades. But now, the treasure chest has been finally opened. The album was completed by its original producers - Hall and Giles – along with Vince Wilburn Jr., Miles Davis’ nephew who played the drums in the original sessions. The eighties synth-drenched sound features a funk/disco rhythm section. In fact, some tracks, on which Miles is rather discreet, do not sound jazzy at all (especially those featuring vocals by Ledisi and Lalah Hathaway). In any case, it is impossible to listen to Rubberband, which was conceived with keyboardists Adam Holzman, Neil Larsen and Wayne Linsey, percussionist Steve Reid, saxophonist Glen Burris and drummer Vince Wilburn, Jr., without thinking about that very distinct musical period. Nevertheless, on themes such as See I See, Miles’ distinctive phrases are still as impressive as ever. And throughout the album he unleashes a few soaring solos. More than enough to satisfy his fans anyway. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

After leaving Apple Records in 1969, James Taylor signed a deal with Warner Bros. During those six years of partnership, his meteoritic rise made him one of the most adulated folk singers in the United States, for hits such as Fire and Rain and You’ve Got a Friend, that encapsulated his lyrical prowess, entrancing voice and overall capacity to rethink folk idioms in a more commercial-friendly format. Starting with Sweet Baby James in 1970, Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (1971) One Man Dog (1972), Walking Man (1974), Gorilla (1975), and last but not least In the Pocket, from 1976, the major steppingstones in Taylor’s career are here. These 6 albums, entirely remastered by Peter Asher, are featured on The Warner Bros. Albums: 1970-1976. The collection is a wonderful way to rediscover his halcyon days and his most important body of work, which would influence countless musicians during the 70s and after thanks to his sensitive, introspective charm. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

The very title of Goin' 50 suggests ZZ Top are considering their 50th anniversary as an event to be celebrated with a sense of humor. That's appropriate. Good spirits and lascivious jokes always have been integral to the trio's appeal, and they can be heard in abundance on this triple-CD/five-LP set that tells their story from beginning to end (there is also a single-disc edition that rounds up the highlights). The set breaks down into three easy acts: the band's greasy early years, spanning from "La Grange" to "Pearl Necklace," are on the first disc; the second installment covers their MTV glory days; the third CD traces the aftermath of Afterburner, beginning with "Viva Las Vegas" and ending with the 21st century barnburner "I Gotsta Get Paid" (plus recent live versions of "Waitin' for the Bus" and "Jesus Just Left Chicago," which brings this full circle to the beginning). Other compilations cover similar ground more succinctly -- if you want just the hits, look elsewhere, or grab the single-disc incarnation of this 2019 set -- but Goin' 50 tells ZZ Top's story in detail, proving that the "Lil' Ol' Band from Texas" was one of America's great bands. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
