Shout! Factory, the imprint of the folks who used to run Rhino, has a new 4-CD box set out called “The Great American Baseball Box.” Looks like only one CD is songs; the other three seem to include play-by-play clips and whatever other audio they could dig up. I’ve got almost all the songs already, so if they sold Discs 2 through 4 separately, I might be tempted.
Also, when the White Sox revealed that their playoff anthem is Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” it didn’t take long for the record company to take advantage. This week, they released a 1981 live version as an iTunes single (maybe elsewhere as well). Actually, some of the iTunes reviewers claim the release is to promote a DVD release of the concert the song is taken from, but we know better — everything comes back to baseball.
