A Reminder…

Just thought i’d remind everyone that Chapters/Indigo is offering free shipping on most of everything they sell. Click on the following link for details on the exceptions: Free Shipping, No Minimum (June 13 – 15)

You can take advantage of this offer to buy one of my favorite Canadian music history books, like Bob Mercereau’s “The History of Canadian Rock ‘N’ Roll” or Martin Melhuish’s “Oh What a Feeling: A Vital History of Canadian Music: The Next Generation” or Christopher Ward’s “Is This Live? Inside The Wild Early Years of Much Music“.

I highly recommend these books, especially to Canadian music historians and fans of Canadian music from the 70’s and 80’s.

May The 4th Be With You

It’s Star Wars Day and you’ll be able to find special deals on Star Wars merchandise and soundtracks today, including vinyl.

My very favorite Star Wars soundtrack is of course the Original soundtrack for Return of the Jedi, which was recently re-released on vinyl both individually and in a 11 LP boxed set that includes all of the soundtracks.

This vinyl re-release includes the original four-page photo insert. But if you prefer compact discs, a boxed set including this re-release was also made available, with a DVD featuring the “Musical Journey” documentary hosted by actor Ian McDiarmid (Chancellor Palpatine) and a bonus CD containing interviews with composer John Williams and actor Harrison Ford.

The “Musical Journey” DVD, which also features music videos set to 16 of John William’s themes, was originally released with the soundtrack for “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith”, which is still available from Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.
