Wings Over America, the historic live album that documented Paul McCartney & Wings' triumphant 1976 tour across North America, will be reissued in a range of formats to satisfy fans and hardcore devotees alike. A stunning four-book, four-disc Deluxe Edition box set will include the two-disc album remastered at Abbey Road, a bonus audio disc recorded live at San Francisco’s Cow Palace, and a bonus DVD containing the rarely seen 75-minute television special Wings Over The World and the photo gallery montage entitled Photographer’s Pass. The set will also feature four exquisitely rendered art books packaged with an incredible array of exclusive memorabilia, souvenirs, mementos, keepsakes and never-before-seen photos and art work from this historic tour. In tandem with the Wings Over America reissue, Eagle Rock is releasing the live concert film Rockshow, shot in 1975 and 1976 when Paul McCartney & Wings undertook the epic Wings Over The World tour. Packed with all the classic Wings and Beatles hits, the film will be on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats. Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, Rockshow, originally an edited version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was originally released on Betamax (later on laserdisc) but it’s only now that the complete full-length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time. The film will also be shown on the big screen for one night only on May 15, 2013 in more than 500 theaters across the world! The theatrical release features an exclusive introduction with Paul McCartney, but there will also be an exclusive VIP premiere screening of Rockshow, with the singer in attendance and introducing the film, at BAFTA on May 15, 2013.

Experience Hendrix LLC and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, proudly announce the release of People, Hell & Angels, an essential new album premiering 12 previously unreleased studio recordings completed by guitarist Jimi Hendrix. People, Hell & Angels showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. These recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements -- horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar -- Hendrix wanted to incorporate within his new music. With an album title coined by Jimi Hendrix, People, Hell & Angels reveals some of Hendrix's post-Experience ambitions and directions as he worked with new musicians, including the Buffalo Springfield's Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, Billy Cox (with whom Hendrix had served in the 101st US Army Airborne and later played on the famed R & B 'chitlin circuit' together) and others. Co-produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott, People, Hell & Angels includes "Earth Blues," "Somewhere," "Hear My Train A Comin'," "Bleeding Heart," "Baby Let Me Move You," "Izabella," "Easy Blues," "Crash Landing," "Inside Out," "Hey Gypsy Boy," "Mojo Man" and "Villanova Junction Blues."

Five years after the fact, Led Zeppelin is releases Celebration Day, which documents the group’s heralded reunion on December 10, 2007 at London’s O2 Arena. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery. Celebration Day will be released in six different formats. The standard edition is a one DVD or Blu-ray and two-CD set, while a deluxe edition includes bonus video from rehearsals and news footage from the BBC. There is also a music-only CD set and a music-only Blu-ray that features high-resolution HD sound but no video. Fans of vinyl can also purchase the 16-song set on three LPs, and the whole thing can also be downloaded at digital retailers. The film will make its U.S. debut at the historic Ziegfeld Theater in New York’s theater district on October 9 (2012). Prior to the premiere, founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant will be joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, for a press conference at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Celebration Day will then have its U.K. premiere at London’s legendary Hammersmith Apollo on October 12 (2012). Jones, Page, and Plant will also be attendance for this special event. Then on October 17 (2012), Omniverse Vision will present a theatrical screening of the film on 1,500 movie screens in 40 cities worldwide. Tickets and details about those screenings are available at LedZeppelin.com. Check out the trailer for Celebration Day below.

In September 1967, the Beatles loaded a film crew onto a bus along with friends, family and cast and headed west on the A30 out of London to make their third film, this time conceived and directed by the Beatles themselves. "Paul said, 'Look I've got this idea' and we said 'great!' and all he had was this circle and a little dot on the top - that's where we started," says Ringo Starr. In the wake of the extraordinary impact of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album and the One World satellite broadcast of "All You Need Is Love," the Beatles devised, wrote and directed their third film, Magical Mystery Tour, a dreamlike story of a coach day trip to the seaside. The film features a fabulous supporting cast of character actors and performers, (including Ivor Cutler, Victor Spinetti, Jessie Robins, Nat Jackley, Derek Royle, and the inimitable Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band). Apple Films have fully restored the long out-of-print, classic feature film for worldwide release on DVD and Blu-ray with a remixed soundtrack (5.1 and stereo) and special features. A special, boxed deluxe edition will also be available, and, for the first time ever, there will be a limited theatrical release from September 27th. This new release also feature three new edits of some of the song performances, as well as scenes that were cut out of the original film. Check out the brand new trailer below.

Eagle Rock Entertainment brings The Who Live In Texas ’75 to DVD for the very first time. Fillmed in Houston on November 20, 1975, it was right at the start of a massive tour of the U.S. to promote The Who By Numbers, their seventh album in their 10th year of existence. With Dolby Digital Stereo sound, this 117-minute 25-song bomb blast—previously only available as a muddled bootleg—has been pridefully restored to its rightful visual and sonic superiority by longtime Who collaborator Jon Astley. Between the windmilling antics of guitarist Pete Townshend, the mic wire lasso of lead singer Roger Daltrey, the crazed bombastic danger of drummer Keith Moon, and their secret weapon, bassist John Entwistle, the Who was a truly revolutionary band who changed all the hard rock rules. Even the punks, in the anti-rock star era of the late 70s, loved the Who. The Dvd features the extensive Tommy section; the savage recreations of early hits such as “My Generation” (with its iconic “hope I die before I get old” line delivered in all its lusty nihilistic truth); the celebrated cover of Eddie Cochran’s “Summertime Blues”; plus “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” making this a Who fan’s delight. Have a look and listen of the "Won't Get Fooled Again" clip from DVD below.
