Since Marc Bolan's own label issued its first greatest-hits package back in 1973, there has been no shortage of collections rounding up the peerless sequence of 18 singles (some with multiple B-sides) released between January 1972 and Bolan's death in September 1977. Indeed, this set was itself just a few months old when its contents were redistributed across two box sets' worth of CD singles, each one replicating the original U.K. 45. As a simple one-stop chronological gathering of the Bolan jukebox at its born-to-boogie best, however, this two-disc package is hard to beat.

My Chemical Romance have announced The Black Parade/Living With Ghosts, a reissue of their 2006 album The Black Parade to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release. The band excited fans around the world earlier this month with the prospect of a potential reunion, but later confirmed that the only thing in the works was the anniversary re-release. The Black Parade/Living With Ghosts is out September 23 via Reprise in a 2xCD package 3xLP vinyl set. Living With Ghosts features unreleased demos and rare mixes from the Black Parade sessions. It also features “The Five of Us Are Dying (rough mix),” an “early version” of the song that would eventually become “Welcome to the Black Parade.”
Collection includes: Placebo (1996); Without You I'm Nothing (1998); Black Market Music (2000); Sleeping with Ghosts (2003); Meds (2006).
With the 2003 release of the critically lauded album Sleeping With Ghosts, Placebo proved once again why they are widely hailed as one of the best acts in the game.
In a whirlwind year, they re-emerged as one of the most innovative and inspired bands around, playing to hundreds of thousands of rabid fans from America to Asia to Australia and all points of the globe.
Here in the US, the band completed two sold-out coast-to-coast tours and achieved sales figures not seen since 1998's breakthrough release Without You I'm Nothing.
