Some people will know it's 2  'drops' this year, the first one in June. I'm starting a thread here for anyone who wants to talk about it- the releases are now listed online.

Might I suggest people who have no interest whatsoever in RSD 2021 or in the whole concept of RSD refrain from posting? Thankyou.

I'll start by saying the John Martyn release looks good.

Here's the link to all the releases (warning: the link opens a PDF)

Fwiw, there's lots there I like but the only one I feel I really need is the Crass one (which is in such tiny numbers, I'll almost certainly struggle)  Smiley

Hmm, 2CD reissue of Vienna (with an instrumental version of the album) looks interesting; as does the 6LP Dead set (hoping that'll eventually find its way out on CD/download though).

Not much there to tickle my fancy except maybe The Replacements and Tears For Fears. To be honest I preferred it last year when everything became pretty easily available online rather than face the bunfight that the day engenders at physical shops. I realise that does defeat the object somewhat.

New vocals and restored bass, apparently. For someone who is generally sceptical at best about floor-sweeping box sets, I’m quite excited about the idea of a ‘Room to Roam’ outtakes and orphans collection.

I've been privy to the research and song-selection process, and I can assure you that it will be an absolute gem of a set.

Is it RSD exclusive or will there be a wider release like the Fisherman's Blues set?

I'm not saying it's "better" per se but I always enjoyed Room to Roam much more than Fisherman's Blues...

The RSD release is an EP featuring a remix plus outtakes.  The full 6-CD boxed set will be on general release.

I think there is something to that. It is a bit more crowd pleasing somehow without losing the "purity" of FB. FB is still probably the greater artistic achievement though.

My take on it is that Fisherman's Blues was a compromise.  It should have been either two separate albums or one double.  As it is, you get three years development shoehorned into one album.  Room to Roam on the other hand is a complete picture of a moment in time.  Fisherman's Blues reaches higher heights, but Room to Roam is more coherent, and more joyful.

Spot on - I'll sign up to that viewpoint.  Incidentally, for no apparent reason I listened to Dream Harder the other day.  I surprised myself by really enjoying it.

I managed to snag a copy of the Tears For Fears CD online after 6pm. There was really very little that interested me from today's offerings. I may try for the John Prine live album from the second drop in July but once again, nothing else tempts me.
