Quick Hits: Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Laura Jane Grace, Motorhead, The Sing-Off, The Doors
July 3, 2013
iTunes has just released two massive compilations of Michael Jackson material, including re-mastered versions of Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad, as well as live tracks, remixes and rarities. The first offering, The Indispensable Collection, contains all of Jackson's solo albums as well as the 16-track 1988 Live at Wembley collection. There is also the 162-track Ultimate Fan Extras Collection, which pulls together all the extras from previously released Jackson reissues, plus demos, rarities and alternate versions of songs.


Amy Winehouse
An Amy Winehouse exhibition is now on display at the Jewish Museum in London. Dubbed Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait, it was created in collaboration with Winehouse's brother, Alex, who hopes the exhibit will give fans a glimpse into a rarely-seen side of the singer. The display showcases the Winehouse family tree and its cultural beliefs through a number of intimate items owned by the singer, according to a Reuters report.

Frontwoman of Against Me!, Laura Jane Grace, has announced a run of solo acoustic shows in August throughout the Northeast. "Laura Jane Grace Sings The Transgender Dysphoria Blues" will begin on August 10 in Philadelphia, PA and will take in six evenings in major cities including Boston, MA on Sunday, August 11, Providence, RI on Tuesday, August 13, Washington, DC on Wednesday, August 14, Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, August 15 and New York, NY on Friday, August 16. Meanwhile, Against Me! have finished tracking their upcoming full-length album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Details on the album will be coming soon.

Motörhead has canceled its remaining six summer festival appearances so that frontman Lemmy Kilmister may continue resting after having "some medical maintenance" done, according to the band's website. "I'd like to thank everyone who wish me well, it was a tough decision for me as I don't like to disappoint the fans especially in times where economy is bad and people spent their money to see us," Lemmy said in a statement. "But sometimes you can't do anything else than following doctor's orders, but be sure we will be back and kick everybody's ass."

Nick Lachey is returning to NBC's The Sing-Off as host for a fourth round on the a cappella singing competition. Additionally, Jewel will join the judges panel along with returning stars Shawn Stockman and Ben Folds, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The NBC show will air as a holiday strip over several nights later this year.

The two surviving members of The Doors, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore, are planning to do a live tribute to the late Ray Manzarek at some point this year. "We're going to do at least one show for Ray and have a big send-off," Krieger told Rolling Stone. "That's either the start or the end of it, I don't know." Krieger also hopes to see the re-release this year of the two albums the Doors released in the years immediately following Jim Morrison's death: 1971's Other Voices and 1972's Full Circle. It could mark the final chapter in decades of Doors re-releases and previously unissued recordings from the vaults. "We're kind of running low on stuff to put out at this point," Krieger added. "I'm hoping now that Ray's gone, it won't be too long. There's cool stuff on those albums."
