Following the recent #1 debut of his new studio album La Radiolina on the Billboard Top Latin & World Albums charts, Manu Chao will be re-issuing much of his solo back catalog beginning with the first-time digital availability of several releases on Nov. 20. The digital re-issues will be followed by special CD/DVD re-issues of the titles with bonus video content in late January.
Among the highlights of the upcoming re-issues are Proxima Estación: Esperanza, Manu Chao’s multi-platinum 2001 release. The re-issue features 4 bonus video clips, including “Me Gustas Tu,” “Merry Blues,” “La Chinita,” and “Mr. Bobby.” Radio Bema Sound System (Live), Manu Chao’s multi-platinum 2002 live release, includes 3 bonus video clips from an explosive 2007 Paris concert. The Babylonia en Guagua DVD includes 2 bonus documentaries (“Babylon’s Fever” and “Todos a Genova”) as well as 2 bonus films (“Proxima Estacion…Esperanza” and “Infinita Tristeza”).
Manu Chao recently completed a 20 city sold-out North American tour, following highly acclaimed co-headlining performances at this year’s Coachella and Bonaroo festivals. His latest album La Radiolina reached #1 on the Billboard, CMJ, R&R, iTunes and eMusic charts, and is one of the most critically-acclaimed records of 2007.
