New York, NY (March 18, 2010)—Eagle Rock Entertainment are delighted to announce that they have signed a deal with the Rolling Stones to release two DVDs this year. The Rolling Stones have long been viewed by many as Britain’s most important rock ‘n’ roll band and these releases, concentrating on some of their finest work laid down in the ’70s, will certainly cement that reputation.

The first of the releases 'Stones In Exile' is the story of the making of the classic album 'Exile On Main Street,' which was released in 1972 as a double LP and is considered by many to be their masterpiece. This title is due to be released in June with substantial bonus material and follows the broadcast of the main show by the BBC in late May, and the reissue of the album at the same time.

The second of the releases is 'Ladies And Gentlemen ... The Rolling Stones,' the legendary Rolling Stones concert film from 1972. Fully restored from the original film, it will be released nationally in cinemas and then receive its first ever authorized DVD release. The title will also be released in high definition on Blu-ray in the Autumn of 2010.

The Rolling Stones line-up featured on both Stones In Exile and Ladies And Gentlemen… The Rolling Stones is: Mick Jagger – vocals; Keith Richards – guitars; Bill Wyman – bass; Charlie Watts – drums; Mick Taylor – guitars.

Geoff Kempin of Eagle Rock commented, “We are delighted to add a band of such unparalleled caliber as the Rolling Stones to our catalogue and are delighted to be bring to consumers a pair of such important and high quality titles.”

Mickey Thomas' Starship new Live in Las Vegas CD / DVD set plus tour dates

It seems the current Starship band featuring Mickey Thomas have a new live CD / DVD set titled, 'Starship ... Live in Las Vegas' available solely through the bands website:
There's also an eight and half minute YouTube trailer at the page too:

This is the line up that includes the extremely talented Stephanie Calvert on lead vocals alongside Mickey Thomas, the full line up being as follows:
Darrell Verdusco - Drums
Phil Bennett - Keyboards, Background Vocals
Jeff Adams - Bass, Background Vocals
Mark Abrahamian - Guitar
and the aforementioned:
Stephanie Calvert - Vocals
Mickey Thomas - Vocals

The ironic thing is trying to get full product details on this release, is tricky, as the video trailer clearly shows Calvert singing old Jefferson Starship tracks like 'White Rabbit' and 'Somebody To Love' and the 10 track CD rear cover does state bonus songs on DVD, but not which bonus songs.

The CD tracklist appears to be:
1. Laying It On The Line
2. No Way Out
3. Jane
4. Sara
5. Nothin's Gonna Stop Us
6. Find Your Way Back
7. Winds Of Change
8. Stranger
9. We Built This City
10 It's Over
