The Golden Eggs label have recently announced their latest raft of new releases.
Their Pink Floyd release this month, ‘Welcome To Vienna’ from the 1st of February, 1977, has been upgraded from a brand new tape transfer. An excellent audience recording.
The Kiss release, ‘Live In Rome’ is another audience recording from Italy, August 29th, 1980. The show was held with the pope in attendance and features an extended version of the track, ‘New York Groove’.
Turning their backs on the standard Rolling Stones release this Spring, the label bring us, ‘Welcome Back To New York’, the bands show at Madison Square Gardens on the 27th of June, ’75. this is a triple CD set from a unique mix of sources including a virgin vinyl source bringing us the best sounding version of this classic set so far.
Sticking with solo Stones, ‘Feelin’ Blues’ is the labels release of Mick Jagger’s blues sessions with the Red Devils band, recorded in 1992. This is a remastered and restored edition.
David Bowie doesn’t just command control of Record Store Day as there’s room here for him too. ‘Kansas Mountain Magic’ is an IEM source from the show at the Starlight Theatre, Kansas City, MO. on the 10th of May, 2004.
The label’s inaugural Queen release, ‘Final Entertainer’, (And it seems like a long time since we saw a Queen release), is an audience recording of the show from The Horizon, Rosemont, Il on the 19th September, 1980. A huge upgrade over previous releases of this set.
Finally, a U2 title, ‘White Flag In Texas’ is a single CD from Southpark Meadows, Austin, TX on the 11th of June, 1983. This audience recording features the full show for the first time on CD.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
