The Rolling Stones, ABKCO Music & Records, Interscope Records and Universal Music Enterprises are pleased to announce the release of GRRR! by The Rolling Stones on the 13th of November 2012 in North America.Available in various different formats – including a three-CD 50 track version featuring 50 tracks, and a four-CD Super-Deluxe version gathering a whopping 80 tracks – the collection tells the fascinating ongoing story of the Greatest Rock'n'Roll Band In The World, from their high octane version of Chuck Berry's Come On, their first single issued in June 1963, via the thrilling chart-toppers The Last Time, (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, Get Off Of My Cloud, Jumping Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Women and the perennial juke-box and concert favorites Brown Sugar, Tumbling Dice, Miss You and Start Me Up, all the way to the present day with the inclusion of Doom And Gloom and One More Shot, two new studio recordings recently completed by the group in Paris, France. UNIVERSAL MUSIC ENTERPRISES CELEBRATES THE SEASON WITH MUSIC TO GET YOU IN THE MOOD FOR THE HOLIDAYS - ANDRE RIEU, James Taylor AND John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John André Rieu: André Rieu, the world’s most popular classical musician known for his energetic and festive live concerts, is releasing HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, on CD, DVD, and Blu-ray™. The HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS DVD features two hours of Christmas-themed music, filmed and recorded in a winter wonderland setting designed by Rieu himself in his hometown of Maastricht, Holland. Produced entirely by André and Marjorie Rieu and their Production Company, HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS will give fans what they’ve come to expect from Rieu’s performances – a musical spectacular featuring André accompanied by his 55-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and six powerful soloists. James Taylor: Get into the holiday spirit with James Taylor at Christmas, a collection of 14 holiday favorites recorded by Taylor throughout the years, including his brand new track “Mon Beau Sapin,” a French rendition of “O Christmas Tree,” which is only available on this collection. James Taylor at Christmas also features his jazzy renditions of “Winter Wonderland” and “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” Taylor’s unique take on “Jingle Bells,” a heartwarming rendition of “The Christmas Song” (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire), and a moving version of George Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun” which Taylor recorded with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Other tracks include his playful duet with Natalie Cole (“Baby, It’s Cold Outside”), a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River,” his take on the spiritual “Go Tell It On the Mountain”, and to cap off the year, the New Year’s classic “Auld Lang Syne.” John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John: When your first single from the Grease album, the biggest movie musical of all time, “You’re the One That I Want, becomes the best-selling duet in pop music history - that’s a tough act to follow. Almost 35 years later, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have combined their iconic voices for This Christmas, on Universal Music Enterprises. A true labor of love made specifically for “the giving season,” Travolta and Newton-John will donate the artist proceeds from the album equally to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia. This Christmas is an intimate, warm set of traditional holiday songs featuring John and Olivia and an all-star lineup that includes Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett and the Count Basie Orchestra, James Taylor, Chick Corea, Kenny G, Cliff Richard and an original “I Think You Might Like It” by writer/producer John Farrar. *Release Dates… AVAILABLE OCTOBER October 2ndABBA – The Essential Collection (2CD)Soundtrack – Pitch Perfect (CD) October 9thB.B.
