As the Rolling Stones get set to re-release their 1971 album "Sticky Fingers" as a deluxe edition on Monday, three other classic rock bands have announced major new releases over the past week that will put a new spin on their catalogs.
*The Doors: While lead singer Jim Morrison died after the release of the Doors' 1971 L.A. Woman, the band's remaining members -- Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore -- kept on recording, producing the 1971 LP "Other Voices" and "Full Circle" a year later. The two albums are getting a re-issue due out on September 4. They'll be available as a two-CD set or on vinyl via www.thedoors.com/store.
*The Grateful Dead: It is a big year from the Grateful Dead, as the band turns 50 and its remaining members embark on a string of live shows. They've now announced a massive album release called "30 Trips around the Sun" that will feature complete recordings from 30 previously unreleased live shows -- one for each year from 1965 to 1995 -- for a total of 73 hours on an 80-disc box set.
Pre-orders for the box set ($699.98) plus a highly abbreviated 4CD collection are being taken at www.dead.net, with release set for September 18.
*Led Zeppelin: Guitarist and producer Jimmy Page has been rolling out remastered, deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin's albums, and July will see the band's final three albums re-issued. "Presence," "In Through the Out Door" and "Coda" will be available July 31 alongside previously unreleased music on CD, LP, vinyl, as a download or in a Super Deluxe Boxed Set including a book of photos and individually numbered album cover prints.
