New Music Releases – January 2013

Fleetwood Mac Rumours
Warner Brothers

The list of January 2013 new music releases prove it’s shaping up to be a Happy New Year indeed for classic rock fans. Some of our favorite groups and artists are kicking off the year with a bang, and though it’s not exactly “out with the old, in with the new” — this is classic rock, after all, so it’s more like “update the old, in with the remasters” — we’re still getting some cool stuff, headed up by a very interesting deluxe box set of Fleetwood Mac‘s masterpiece, ‘Rumours.’

The album won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 1977, and recently topped our list of the Top 10 Albums of 1977, with good reason. A note-perfect classic that marries uplifting pop-rock with lyrical anguish, ‘Rumours’ spawned a string of singles that continue to receive massive airplay today, including ‘Don’t Stop,’ ‘Dreams,’ ‘Go Your Own Way‘ and ‘The Chain.’

The new deluxe box set from Rhino celebrates the 35th anniversary of the landmark release with four discs, encompassing all of the music from the original album (with the addition of the b-side ‘Silver Springs’), a disc featuring 12 unreleased live recordings from Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 tour, and a disc of unreleased alternate takes from the album recording sessions. A fourth disc comprises rough demos and outtakes. There is also a DVD of a documentary about the recording of ‘Rumours,’ as well as a vinyl version of the original album. (How come the bonus stuff hardly ever gets onto wax?)

That sounds like it could keep us busy in January all by itself, but we’re also looking forward to compilations and reissues from Billy Joel, Elton John, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as a cool Chickenfoot box set and a new studio album from Toto guitarist Steve Lukather.

Read on for a complete list of January 2013′s classic rock releases, and be sure to check out our continuously updated list of all the 2013 New Music Releases to keep up-to-date with what your favorite artists are releasing in the new year.
