Courtesy of the fine folks at Rhino Records and Sneak Attack Media, we’re contesting an amazing prize pack which includes limited edition, high-quality vinyl reissues of Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and Captain Beefheart. The prize pack includes;
- The Eagles: Eagles: The Studio Albums 1972-1979: six LPs of Eagles’ original Asylum Records studio albums, including each of the chart-topping albums the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers released between 1972 and 1979, released on 180-gram vinyl includes: Eagles, Desperado, On The Border, One Of These Nights, Hotel California, The Long Run. Each LP features replicas of the original album packaging with two special artwork upgrades – the sleeve of the debut album, Eagles, will finally be released as the band originally intended, with no glue flaps, so the cover folds out into a poster, as described in the acclaimed documentary History of the Eagles. Hotel California will include a replica of the poster from the original issue with band photos by Norman Seeff in full color, for the first time. Purchase here.
- Fleetwood Mac: Then Play On: Fleetwood Mac’s 1969 debut on Reprise, featuring the original U.K. running order and track seques with “One Sunny Day” and “Without You” making their first appearance on a CD issue of the album, as well as new liner notes by veteran rock journalist David Fricke and four bonus tracks, including the revered single “Oh Well – Pt. 1,” which boasts one of the great guitar riffs in rock history and has been covered by the likes of Billy F Gibbons, Jimmy Page and Tom Petty. Fleetwood Mac: 1969-1972: a beautiful vinyl collection with four of the band’s classic albums, each lovingly reproduced on 140-gram vinyl. As a bonus, the set comes with an exclusive replica of the original 1969 7-inch single of “Oh Well Pt. 1” b/w “Oh Well – Pt. 2.” Purchase here.
- Captain Beefheart: Sun, Zoom, Spark: 1970 to 1972: a limited edition four-disc collection that revisits the albums Captain Beefheart (aka Don Van Vliet) recorded with the Magic Band in the early Seventies. It includes all three albums (Lick My Decals Off, Baby; The Spotlight Kid; and Clear Spot), which have been remastered for the first time, as well as an entire disc featuring 14 previously unissued outtakes, alternate versions and rehearsals from that era. Lick My Decals Off, Baby is one of Van Vilet’s favorites, and represents the apex of his dissonant style. The Spotlight Kid features more barebones blues-rock sounds. Lester Bangs wrote in Rolling Stone (March ’72) that Beefheart had struck the balance between “intensely personal type of statement” and “mass appeal, ” praising the album for its “wit and genius.” Clear Spot was released soon after with several standout tracks, such as the vulnerable love song “My Head Is My Only House Unless It Rains,” the soul ballad “Too Much Time,” and the pulsing “Big Eyed Beans from Venus.” Purchase here.
