Puffy 15

As seen in the comments in the last blog enter (thanks hareonna20 for the scoop!) Puffy is set to release a greatest hits compilation titled "15" on November 23, 2011.

It looks like an extra will be a Rodney Greenblat designed washcloth-type-thing and rumor has it he is doing the cover art for "15." A nice flash back to the past and I eagerly await the cover.

The only track listed so far is "Asia no Junshin" but it is listed as a 2 CD set. Tokyo Hive is reporting that the limited edition will have a music disc and bonus video footage disc. Rekuru is reporting it is two music cd's. It could be either, it could be neither...

This can play out a lot of ways. If the second disc were bonus video footage, I would hope that the 15th anniversary concert was the bonus material. But Puffy could got he route of Def Leppard who's release Mirrorball had an impressive two music discs plus a concert DVD. (yes, I am a Def Leppard fan... we all have our own musical Waterloo's). I will also be interested to see if there are any new songs on "15" which might crowd out some old Puffy standards depending on how much music is being included in "15."

That said if there is only one disc of music for "15," that will make for some interesting choices as to what to put on the album and what to leave off of it.

Unfortunately no track listings or details have been released for "15" as of this writing. So when I know more... you will know more.

P.S. You can pre-order from CD Japan now.
