Psychobabble News Round Up: George Harrison, Monkees, Ramones, DavidLynch

In anticipation of its DVD and Blu-ray release on October 10, the trailer for Martin Scorsese's George Harrison: Living in the Material World has just debuted. On October 1, Abrams will be publishing a 400-page tie-in book by Harrison's widow Olivia. It is now available for pre-order on here.

For those who prefer their rock stars manufactured and without philosophies, there's the new 180 gram clear-vinyl edition of The Monkees' beautiful and bizarre soundtrack to their beautiful and bizarre film Head. Out on Rhino Handmade on September 20, the albums will be limited to a run of 500 and include a bonus 7" of "Circle Sky (live)" b/w "Can You Dig It? (mono mix)". Presumably, the L.P. will also feature the original release's reflective cover, but this is not acknowledged on its pre-order page at

For those who can't wait until the end of September to OD on catchy tunes cut by live-action cartoons, Rhino's 180 gram vinyl editions of the first four Ramones albums are now available. Like Head, each album is limited to a run of 500 and includes a bonus 7".

In non-rock news (unless you consider Dean Stockwell lip-synching to "In Dreams" sufficient), DVD Adicinado lists a November 8 release date for a new edition of Blue Velvet on DVD and Blu-ray. David Lynch fan site is stirring rumors that the disc will include "Over 50 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Lost Footage" and "A Few Outtakes," but none of this has been confirmed by Fox yet. Stay tuned...
