How blue can you get

coverdale/page 2023 japanese reissue

We don’t know what exactly happened to Coverdale’s grandiose plans for the 30th anniversary of Coverdale/Page album, but it has been re-released in Japan as a limited edition 2LP on transparent blue vinyl. There does not appear to be any bonus material included.

This reissue can be ordered from the Tower Records in Japan.

Thanks to BraveWords for the info.

    None. None more blue.

    Even back in vinyl days, colored vinyl never held any appeal for me. More hiss and less longevity. You don’t really play these things.

    Well I heard 3 tracks that didn’t make the album and couldn’t think of any reason why they were left out. In fact I liked them better than some of the actual content. But it’s often like this for me: Anything You Want and Can’t Stop Now weren’t on the original Restless Heart album but a lot more fun than some of the tracks that were on it.

    Not Responsible, Don’t Hold Your Breath … even the bonus tracks for Before I Forget had something to them.

    The reason there were tracks that didn’t make the album was that David and Jimmy Page had more songs that were going to be on the next album. Coverdale/Page wasn’t going to be a one-off project originally, but sadly it turned out that way.

    A couple of the best songs probably weren’t on the album

    I have both black vinyl and respective colors of J. Geils red Bloodshot and Grand Funk Railroad’s We’re An American Band gold copy.

    But where dare I ask does this get me?

    qt.”I have both black vinyl and respective colours of J. Geils red “Bloodshot” and Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band” gold copy…

    But where dare I ask does this get me” ???…

    ***It’s not so-much where it gets you, but rather indicates that you liked these albums so much, you were happy to grab them again, as likely limited-number-special-edition-reissues, with the “colours-of-proof ” as proof, to show everyone lol ! They may also fetch a few-more-dollars than the regular issues do within the 2nd-hand-market…

    You’d be surprised what people pay for 2nd-hand 1st pressing LP’s decades old, even CD’s & tapes.

    A place like Discogs.com is where you should visit for representative asking prices for these things. The research done on each item is extensive, with all known pressings & releases, plus catalogue numbers & country of origin + labels available…

    And at the least, you’ll discover what’s available world-wide & trending pricing. This makes web-shopping better, since you’ll know what to expect to pay for something…

    Keep-out-of-the-US-of-A however…If the price of an item doesn’t offend you after exchange-rate conversion, the postage costs will LOL !

    Peace !

    But where dare I ask does this get me?“

    Pretty much in the “Has good grasp of 70ies US arena rock, knows bands from Flint and Boston other than Aerosmith, The Cars or fronted by Tom Scholz!“. :mrgreen:

    Wot, no Foghat?!

    A J. Geils Band gig in the late 70ies in a small hall/club in Germany (at a time when they were already filling large halls to arenas in the US – circa Love Stinks) ranks among the all time best performances of any band I‘ve seen. They worked their asses off and played four (!) separate encores, the last one even after the house lights had gone on and Peter Wolf jumped back on stage landing on his knees and yelling “WAMMA JAMMA ONE MORE TIME?” into the mic. Dutifully, the extremely satisfied, but blissfully exhausted crowd already shuffling on its way out turned on their heels …

    Unfortunately, I never saw the guys from Flint, GFR hardly ever toured Germany.

    In respect to the thread title, The Who last week released what must be the most comprehensive boxed-set of recordings ever, with a 10-disc-set of what must be everything to do with the then failed “Lifehouse” project, that ultimately morphed into the superlative album “Who’s Next”…I dare say that there’ll be some live-shows among the disc-set from the “Young Vic’s”, & hopefully they’ll include the shows that featured the late, great, & dearly missed Leslie West…

    Anyhow, this is a good thing, as “Who’s Next” carries equal weight with “Why Doncha”, & also along with “Machine Head” in my books…1972 was a truly magnificent year for music…

    Anyhow, the thread-title aspect of this post, “How blue can you get ?” would have to be the asking price for this “Lifehouse” boxed-set…It’s around $550:00 AUD, so likely around $300:00 Euro’s, USD’s, & Lb’s…It does come with a hard-cover book I suppose…

    Peace !
