BBC Radio 2 will broadcast a "virtual" Bob Dylan concert featuring rare performance tracks.

The Dream Dylan Concert will include 11 rare live recordings stretching from 1962 to 2001, including Maggie's Farm from 1965, Like A Rolling Stone from 1974, To Make You Feel My Love in 1985, and the Oscar-winning Things Have Changed from 2000.

Radio 2's virtual Dylan concert will also feature a song from one of his 12 nights in San Francisco in November 1980, which saw him reunite with guitarist Mike Bloomfield, with whom he collaborated in 1965.


It'll air Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. U.K. time. Listeners elsewhere may want to check if it's carried on the Beeb's audio-on-demand service later on.

Y'know Mike Sterling is right: It's tacky of DC Comics to place a DVD ad on the cover of a $75 book.

Pop Artifact! Disney's Song of the South movie poster

Pop Culture Roundup Sept. 11, 2007

A new album by Kinks' leader Ray Davies is set for release Oct. 29.

-----------------

I thought I'd dump DC Comics' "The Spirit" title once artist/writer Darwyn Cooke's jumps ship with issue 12. But now with the news that Sergio Aragones and Mark Evanier will be co-writing, I'll stick around. Much as I enjoyed Cooke's art, I think this new duo will provide better writing. They'll certainly nail the humorous aspects of Will Eisner's character. No word on who'll handle the art.

Aragones also is penning a "Bat Lash" mini-series to be drawn by John Severin.

Details on both announcements here.

UPDATE: Evanier has more info:

It was revealed on a panel at the Baltimore Comic Convention so I guess I should post it here. DC Comics, as you may know, publishes a fine comic that continues the adventures of Will Eisner's The Spirit. Darwyn Cooke has been writing and drawing it but he's departing the book. That's all old news. The new news is that while its next artist has not yet been announced, the writing will be handled by Sergio Aragones (the plots) and me (the words). I'll tell you more about it when there's more to tell.

Jazz keyboardist Joe Zawinul has passed away, Billboard reports. Zawinul co-led the band Weather Report with saxophonist Wayne Shorter and, before that, was a key member in groups led by Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley.

The Guardian reviews Brian Wilson's performance at London's Royal Festival Hall last night, which saw him debut a new collection of songs.

But when Wilson and his band reappear and perform That Lucky Old Sun, something remarkable happens. Essentially a series of pastiches of the various styles he minted in the 60s - the opening Morning Beat bears a hint of both Dance Dance Dance and Do It Again - it's infinitely more enjoyable than most observers might have expected: the harmonies soar, the tunes lodge in your memory. Midnight's Another Day isn't the most beautiful melody Wilson has written, but it's the most beautiful he's managed for decades, and even he realises it. For a moment, the disconcerting expression on his face vanishes, replaced by a smile of unalloyed delight.

DVD: Star Trek: The Original Series - The Complete First Season HD

This set, due out, is available for pre-order now from Amazon.

Details:

CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment invite you to experience STAR TREK: The Original Series as never before when the legendary first season arrives for the first time ever in a 10-disc HD DVD/DVD combo disc set on November 20, 2007. Meticulously remastered from the original camera negative specifically for this high-definition release, each classic episode is presented in pristine condition with state-of-the-art digital visual effects. 1960s special effects have been replaced with 21st century computer-generated imagery to give new depth and atmosphere to various elements including the main title sequence, the galaxy shots frequently seen from the Enterprise's bridge, the battle scenes, planets and alien ships, some of the matte paintings used as backdrops for new worlds, as well as the Enterprise and other Starships, which have been replaced with state-of-the-art CGI-created ships. The new computer-generated Enterprise is based on the exact measurements of the original model, which now rests in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

The refurbished episodes also feature higher quality sound for the famous opening theme. The original score by Emmy® Award-winning composer Alexander Courage has been re-recorded in state-of-the-art digital stereo audio with an orchestra and a female singer belting out the famous vocals. A digitally remastered version of William Shatner's classic original recording of the 38-word "Space, the final frontier…” monologue continues to open each episode.

In addition, the extraordinary set features true HD audio and exclusive HD DVD interactive features produced by New Wave Entertainment. Interactive menus and a "Starfleet Access” interface will allow viewers to activate icons which provide such features as Picture in Picture video commentaries and an interactive tour of the starship Enterprise. Both the standard definition and high definition presentations also include rare on-set home movie footage, an inside perspective on what it took to transport Trek into the 21st century and much more. Housed in a futuristic clear case, the STAR TREK: The Original Series HD DVD/DVD set will be available for the suggested retail price of $217.99.

STAR TREK: The Original Series is a 10-disc collection presented in the original aspect ratio (1.33:1) screen. The standard definition presentation includes Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, LAS Mono and French Mono as well as English, LAS and French subtitles. The HD DVD presentation features English Dolby True HD and LAS Mono with English and LAS subtitles. The DVD is not rated in the U.S. and rated G in Canada.
