Esoteric Recordings To Release BE-BOP DELUXE “SUNBURST FINISH” 3CD/1DVD Limited Edition Deluxe Boxed Set – November 23, 2018

Published

on

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered four disc deluxe expanded boxed set limited edition (comprising 3 CDs and a DVD) of SUNBURST FINISH the legendary 1976 album by BE-BOP DELUXE.

Recorded in the Autumn of 1975 at Abbey Road studios (with some sessions also taking place at AIR studios in London), SUNBURST FINISH was the third album by Be-Bop Deluxe and the first to feature the line-up of BILL NELSON (vocals, guitars, keyboards), CHARLIE TUMAHAI (bass, vocals), ANDY CLARK (keyboards) and SIMON FOX (drums). It was also the first BE-BOP DELUXE album to be co-produced by BILL NELSON and JOHN LECKIE. An album of immense musical inventiveness and creativity, SUNBURST FINISH was one of the finest albums of its era, a perfect cohesion of ten classic songs written by BILL NELSON (featuring his highly imaginative guitar playing) and a stylized and striking artwork package. Featuring such classic material as “Heavenly Homes”, “Crying to the Sky”, “Sleep that Burns”, “Life in the Air Age”, “Crystal Gazing” and “Blazing Apostles”, the album also spawned the hit single “Ships in the Night” and launched BE-BOP DELUXE as one of the major breakthrough acts of 1976.

This expanded reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 39 bonus tracks drawn from a stunning new 5.1 surround sound & stereo mixes from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, previously unreleased out-takes from the album sessions, a BBC Radio “In Concert” performance from January 1976, a rare John Peel Show session from February 1976 (unavailable on CD for over twenty years), along with an unissued and previously unreleased 1976 Harvest Records promotional video for “Ships in the Night” and a session for BBC TV’s “Old Grey Whistle Test” show from January 1976.

Another highlight of this limited edition boxed set is the lavishly illustrated 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. Additionally, the set includes a facsimile of the 1976 SUNBURST FINISH tour programme, postcards and a replica poster. This special deluxe limited edition boxed set of SUNBURST FINISH is a fitting tribute to a fine band, the creative vision of Bill Nelson and a wonderful album.

Boosie Badazz Sprinter Van Shot Up In Dallas

Published

Hip Hop Bling Jewelry

Recently a shooting took place in the parking lot of Bit T’s in Dallas Texas where Boosie Badazz’s sprinter van was reportedly located. Different accounts are coming to different conclusions – some are saying Boosie’s van was the specific target of the attack, while others swear that he was just in the area. When you want friends and foes alike to know you’re in the area, upgrade your shine with a fresh iced out piece from HipHopBling.com, the premier provider of high end hip hop jewelry online.

Thusfar there hasn’t been a confirmation one way or another from Boosie’s Team – No Jumper and Dirty Glove Bastard have claimed that Boosie was struck in the leg, however Boosie shared a commemoration of his birthday on Instagram, without any mention of the shooting.

It is actually Boosie’s birthday as well. Boosie was in Dallas for both his 38th birthday, and a candle lit vigil for his friend and collaborator MO3, whom was recently shot and killed. There’s currently an ongoing investigation, but not much has yet been found.

Lil Uzi Vert And Lil Xan Will Not Be Working With Each Other Anytime Soon

Published

on

By

This year has been a busy year for Vert, whom this year alone dropped two projects: Eternal Atake and Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World Pt. 2. Most people consider the latter a Plat version of EA, but Vert wasn’t stopped there. He hooked up with Future in the studio for Pluto x Baby Pluto, and it truly looks like all his hard work is paying off for him in a big way. If you’re looking for fresh new jewelry that will show up in a big way, head over to HipHopBling.com for your own custom jewelry

While fans have been eating his projects up, they’ve also been vocal about wanting him to return to his old sound. Lil Uzi Vert may be doing just that though – hitting up Twitter, Vert mentioned that he thinks it’s just about time to return to his mumbling ways. Lil Xan saw this and shot his shot, and mentioned that he’d be down to mumble alongside him. 

Lil Uzi Vert let him down in possibly the kindest way possible – “I mumble alone,” he said, with a heartbreak emoji. 

Some fans who saw the exchange were absolutely furious, convinced that Vert had just dissed their boy Xan. The exchange was quickly taken down from Twitter, but not before they had a chance to screenshot the entire thread. 

While it’s clear that we’re not going to see any Xan and Vert collab anytime soon, at least we can look forward to a return to form for Lil Uzi Vert.

Future, 2 Chainz And Lil Uzi Vert Run “Fire Emoji” Playlist

Published

on

By

Sooner than later publications will begin to reveal their “Best Of’s” as 2020 draws to a close. This year has been tumulus, however many would argue that this year has forced artists to become more creative than ever before. This week alone has seen several high profile drops and it makes sense to add them to this week’s Fire Emoji playlist. If you’re looking for some fire jewelry, customize your own merch for this holiday season by heading over to HipHopBling.com

Both Future and Lil Uzi Vert have been hinting at a project together for a hot minute – this month they finally delivered the fire with Pluto x Baby Pluto. With 2 Chainz So Help Me God having just dropped, we’re finally able to listen to some of those bars – including “Feel A Way” with Kanye West and Brent Faiyaz. 

With the prison drop of Kodak Black’s Bill Israel and the anticipated Rich the Kid and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s collaboration, “Automatic” had to be added to the list. Peep it below for yourself and tell us what you think.
