The Tarantura label have just announced 2 new releases to their catalogue – 

PR00102278971

“Plays Oldie But Goodie” is a release of the Memorial Auditorium, Texas ’73 show by Led Zepplin. The show where John Paul Jones was forced to play with two broken ribs after, what the drummer claimed, was a coughing fit. The label have come up with another of their twists on the covers presenting the show in either “A” or “B” jackets. Same show, different covers for the discerning collector.

The Idol Mind label have their shot at the Rolling Stones Brixton show that many other labels have also released. Using their vaunted rubidium remaster, combining the soundboard up with the audience tape, they promise the best possible sound for this show (!). Initial copies also come with a BDR disk, gaining pace with the major labels love of upgrading their product on to blu-ray disks to furnish the best sound available, the BRD disk also features the audience shot video version of the show, twinned with this remaster along with 2 versions of the “Stripped” TV special – an “On -Air” version and an “Off-Air” version.

    I picked up the Idol Mind version of Brixton. This is a truly beautiful release with obi. The show contains the full band intro from an audience source. The concert itself sounds wonderful with great stereo separation. The blu ray -r is a nice addition with the soundboard synched to the concert footage.
    Overall, this set is aimed at the silver disc collector who wants that little extra . The label did a great job with this and their similar cd/blu ray titles.
