WHO? NO WHO!

Despite all the rumours circulating now for almost a year, there won’t be no new album by THE WHO. Rumours had it as if band were set to work to not release the recordings if the three wouldn’t satisfied with the results.

However, Pete Townshend said that, while he’s busy with his own projects, there wasn’t any collaboration between him, Roger Daltrey and John Entwistle. Roger, indeed, showed the guitarist three “very good” songs but there was none from John The Ox.

CATCH A FIRE, NOT A COLD

Universal Island begins a comprehensive Bob Marley re-issue programme on April 16 with a deluxe edition of “Catch A Fire”album by Marley and THE WAILERS.

The album was the band’s first for Chris Blackwell’s Island label and put the roots reggae sound to the major music scene, while Marley gained the superstar status.

The 2CD remastered re-issue of “Catch A Fire” features the original UK mix of the album, plus the unreleased Jamaican version recorded in 1972, which has been remixed by THE WAILERS’ sound man Errol Brown. Moreover, there are two extremely rare cuts, “High Tide Or Low Tide” and “All Day All Night”. The set is graced by luxurious digipak with the original artwork, plus extensive sleeve notes, new photographs, complete credits and lyrics.
