Traveler's Guide to Space & Time album by Blind Guardian was released Mar 05, 2013 on the Virgin label. Extremely limited edition 15 CD box set from the veteran German Power Metal band. Includes digitally remastered editions of seven studio albums, three live sets and a disc of rarities and previously unreleased tracks. The box set comes with individually numbered artprint and guitar plectrum.
Two dozen rare B-sides from Stax Records’ “blue” period, many reissued for the first time. An enormous and impressive undertaking, “The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-68” box set was issued in 1991. While pleased with its content, hardcore collectors were nevertheless disappointed that it was not as “complete” as it claimed to be, as it featured all the A-sides and only selected B-sides. While highly welcome, its release left more than 100 of approximately 225 “blue period” Stax and Volt B-sides un-reissued in any form. Several of those sides have since featured on CD compilations, either as individual tracks here and there or on Kent’s recent “The Other Side Of The Trax”, but that still left many awaiting reissue. Fortunately, the success of “The Other Side Of The Trax” has warranted this second volume. The 24 tracks here span almost the whole of Stax Records’ blue period, as far back as when the label was still called Satellite.
"Sounds From the Other Side" is the forthcoming third studio album from Afro-Pop star Wizkid, set to be released sometime in 2017 by RCA Records. Wizkid was notably featured on the smash hit single "One Dance" by Pop sensation Drake. The song went #1 in 15 different countries, and has also become the most streamed song in Spotify's history. The two have recorded more music together since.
This Set include material recorded from various shows during the European tour leg in 2015, among old classics, new tracks as well as songs that are played very rarely during live shows. Vocalist Hansi Kürsch speaks about the difficulties to create such an ambitious album: “In general I would say that we’ve had a really good run on this tour and that nearly every show was perfect. But, at the end of the day, after every band member has checked each and every song and concert of those 30 shows again and again, there were only like two or three versions of each song being suitable to be used for an album. We then had to decide between those last remaining versions, which would have been the most impressive one. This was a nearly endless task!
