New Music Releases – July 2012
Our July 2012 New Music Releases calendar is highlighted by yet another worthy concert reissue from the one and only Jimi Hendrix.
'Jimi Plays Berkeley' captures a May 1970 concert appearance by Hendrix, and has been bolstered from it's originally released form with 5.1 surround sound, 15 minutes of previously unseen footage and a picture restored from the original 16mm negative of the film.
The month will also bring a new concert DVD from Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, chronicling his fantastic 2011 'Band of Joy' tour, as well as Ozzy Osbourne's long out-of-print 1982 'Speak of the Devil' tour live film. This tour was his first following the tragic death of guitarist Randy Rhoads.
It's a month dominated by concert dvds, now that we look at it all in one place. You can also expect a new live set from Crosby, Stills and Nash and a re-issued version of 'Secret World' from Peter Gabriel.
