Led Zeppelin have posted a new trailer for their “Record Store Day” (April 21) limited edition 7″ single. That release, which will be pressed on yellow vinyl, was produced by Jimmy Page, and it will come with a mix of “Rock and Roll” from the “Sunset Sound Mixes” for “Led Zeppelin IV”, and the “Olympic Sound Mix” of “Friends,” which removes the orchestration for “a true fly-on-the-wall feel from the band’s recording sessions for Led Zeppelin III at Headley Grange.”
Devin Townsend has announced that he will be releasing a series of four vinyl box sets called “Eras.” “Part One” will be released on June 8, and it will come with The Devin Townsend Project’s “KI,“ “Addicted,“ “Deconstruction,” and “Ghost” on 180-gram vinyl, as well as liner notes by Chris Dick, comments from Townsend, etc. Pre-orders can be found HERE.
“The Devin Townsend Project, although it went further than I had originally planned, began life as these four albums. ‘Ki‘, ‘Addicted‘, ‘Deconstruction‘ and ‘Ghost‘. The music evolved in line with a period of intense personal growth, and the albums in chronological order were meant to illustrate that change. The amount of people involved with this was extensive, and the journey was one that defined my career in ways I cannot over express. These four albums are really what the Devin Townsend Project was about.
I have been asked repeatedly over the last few years to provide these albums on vinyl, in one set. So we took this opportunity to put together ‘Eras‘, which is the definitive vinyl box-set encapsulating this period of my life and work that I am exceptionally proud of. As always, this wouldn’t have come to fruition without the support of the tremendous audience who has allowed it to flourish, so respect to both yourselves, the people involved, and the music itself, we present to you; ‘Eras‘. Thank you for allowing me to continue to do what I do.”
