Fleetwood Mac "Tango in the Night" deluxe edition

Chart Watch and New Releases: 31 March 2017

Not much to report on the album chart this week, which is just as well as nobody has bothered to update it on the Official Charts website, but the Jesus & Mary Chain enter at 16 with their first album in almost 20 years, Damage And Joy. Over on the physical singles chart, Blondie rocket 17 places to number 1 with Long Time while previous single Fun climbs back up 2 places to number 8.

In the shops this week, Fleetwood Mac’s 1987 album Tango in the Night is expanded to two CDs with 13 bonus tracks, or a deluxe box set with an extra CD of remixes, a DVD and a 180g vinyl pressing of the album. One More Time With Feeling, a film about the making of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Skeleton Tree album, is out on DVD and Blu-ray, while Deacon Blue’s Live at the Glasgow Barrowlands is out on vinyl or a 2CD + DVD set. The surprisingly prolific Wire release a new album Silver/Lead, Fischer-Z return with Building Bridges, and former Men At Work frontman Colin Hay has a new solo album Fierce Mercy. Continuing their recent series of vinyl reissues, the third Altered Images album Bite gets a 180g release with a bonus white vinyl 7″ coupling Don’t Talk To Me About Love and Love To Stay. Finally, in budget corner there are very reasonably priced 3CD compilations Wonderland – The Essential Big Country, Lessons In Love – The Essential Level 42 and Love & Affection – The Essential Joan Armatrading.
