RTÉ PLAYER: “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas”

January 18, 2020  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

For those living in Ireland exclusively, you still have 8 days on the RTÉ Player to watch the replay of “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas” that was broadcast on RTÉ 2 on Friday 27 December 2019.

The 26 min. documentary includes a part dedicated to the recording of the song “Angela’s Christmas” and there is even an interview with Olé Koretsky recorded after Dolores’s passing.

For those who are not in Ireland these days the link won’t work and will return an error message:

…so your only way to watch it is to grab the official “Angela’s Christmas” DVD released last November in the US where the documentary is part of the special features (DVD Bonus).

“Something Else” purple vinyl edition to be released soon

January 17, 2020  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Some more information about the “Something Else” vinyl that was supposed to be reissued on 22 November 2019 and which was delayed to 29 November 2019, then to 29 May 2020, then to further announcement.

For now information is still very confusing as some stores are announcing a new release date on the 31 of January 2020 (like Amazon USA) when some others are still announcing the double vinyl to be released in May. Even Amazon is not saying the same depending on your country!

More importantly, the new release would in fact be a purple vinyl edition! Some record stores already received their copies and put them on sale straight away (like spellboundrecords in New Zealand) and now the very first images have started to surface as you can see below:

So check directly with your record store(s) as no one is saying the same at the moment, whether it is about the release date, the color, or the price…
