Eagle Rock Entertainment To Release SD Blu-rays Of



~Release Date March 25, 2014~

New York, NY (February 20, 2014)--On March 25, 2014, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release dual-film SD Blu-rays from two of music's most hailed songwriters. Joni Mitchell's Woman Of Heart And Mind + Painting With Words And Music and Lou Reed's Classic Albums: Transformer + Live At Montreux 2000 will be re-issued in upscaled standard definition with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound for the best possible viewing and listening quality. [Pre-book Order Date February 28, MSRP $24.98 Joni Mitchell, $19.98 Lou Reed]

One of the most distinguished and significant songwriters of her generation, Joni Mitchell, a multi-Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, has captured the hearts and minds of fans worldwide. The Woman Of Heart And Mind documentary, which tells the story of her life and career, was hailed by Uncut Magazine as "a model of musical biography in DVD form...her life story in perfectly matched words, music, and images..." It's paired with the concert film Painting With Words And Music, which was captured at Los Angeles' Warner's Lot, in a specially set up auditorium displaying a gallery of her own paintings. Filmed in the spring of 1998, the setting is warm and intimate, as Mitchell plays in the round with a small band, performing beloved tracks from across her career, like "Big Yellow Taxi," "Crazy Cries Of Love," and "Amelia."

The late Lou Reed's immense influence on Rock 'N' Roll cannot be quantified. Inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame, his time fronting The Velvet Underground and as a solo artist helped create the template of punk rock music and culture. Classic Albums: Transformer, part of Eagle Rock's acclaimed documentary series, explores the creation and recording of Reed's legendary Transformer album through interviews with those involved, archive footage, and meticulous in-studio breakdowns of the songs. Live At Montreux is mostly comprised of songs from his 2000 album Ecstasy, but also includes fan favorites like "Perfect Day" and "Dirty Blvd." On this performance, Reed is backed by his longtime band Mike Rathke (guitar), Tony "Thunder" Smith (drums), and Fernando Saunders (bass).

These two SD Blu-rays continue Eagle Rock's recent catalog re-issues of classic music films with enhanced video and sound. The label has also recently released SD Blu-rays of The Bee Gees' One Night Only and The Scorpions' Moment Of Glory.
