Here's another opportunity to grab some harder to find music from Dave Edmunds.  Sony Music is issuing an "Original Album Classics" box set featuring 5 Dave Edmunds albums including Information and Riff Raff - both featuring collaborations with Jeff Lynne... (but no idea what masters they plan to use for this set...)

The box will contain:
Subtle As A Flying Mallet
D.E. 7th
Information [Slipping Away, Information]
Riff Raff  [Something About You, Breaking Out, Far Away, S.O.S., Hang On]
I Hear You Knocking

UK release date: April 1, 2013


HMV Japan is the first retailer to list the suspected additional bonus tracks on the upcoming Japanese editions of:

Electric Light Orchestra Live  - Telephone Line [Live from Bungalow Palace]
Zoom - Lucky Motel [Previously Unreleased]
Armchair Theatre - Strange Magic [Live from Bungalow Palace]

Again, like Long Wave and Mr. Blue Sky, these CDs will be SHM-CDs.  Release date: April 17, 2013.

More vintage videos have made their way out on iTunes...

Wild West Hero, Showdown, Turn To Stone from Wembley are new - as well as the original promos for Rockaria, Livin' Thing and It's Over.  And also oddly thrown in, the TV performance of Telephone Line.
