Weather Report Boxed Set in the Works

Tuesday, February 8th, 2005

A small blurb in the recent issue of Down Beat magazine mentioned that Sony/Legacy Recordings is working on a Weather Report boxed set. My sources tell me that current plans call for three CDs and a DVD. The CDs will be an overview of Weather Report’s existing catalog. Also included will be a remix of “125th Street Congress,” an unissued version of “Directions” with Eric Gravatt from November 1971, a complete version of “Eurydice,” and a live performance of “Mysterious Traveller” from December 1974. The DVD might be the 1978 Offenbach concert. No word on when this might be released. As we know, plans can change, so we’ll just have to stay tuned!
