Eagle Rock Entertainment announced this past week that a pair of double-feature Blu-ray product offerings featuring Joni Mitchell and Lou Reed will be ready at retail on Mar. 25.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and winner of numerous Grammys, Joni Mitchell will be showcased in the Blu-ray featuring her Painting with Words and Music concert (filmed live on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in 1998), which is teamed with documentary filmmaker Stephanie Bennett’s 2003 film profile, Joni Mitchell: A Woman of Heart and Mind.
Painting with Words and Music is an 18-song set that kicks off with “Big Yellow Taxi,” and includes renditions of “Amelia,” “Black Crow,” “Sex Kills” and “Dream Land.”
The Lou Reed collection teams Lou Reed: Live at Montreux 2000 with the track-by-track album review featuring Lou Reed with Ken Scott, Classic Albums: Transformer.
Lou Reed: Live at Montreux 2000 features the live-concert performance (mainly in support of his 2000 “Ecstasy” album) at the famed Swiss venue … a 16-song set that includes “Ecstasy,” “Modern Dance” and “Mystic Child” (from that album release), plus such Lou Reed gems as “Perfect Day” and “Dirty Blvd.”
