Due in stores Tuesday:

  • The Beatles, “LOVE” (Capitol). Original producer George Martin and son Giles reimagine the Beatles music for a Cirque du Soleil production by “mashing-up” numerous tracks. Read story and a CD review Saturday in The Miami Herald.
  • David Crosby, “If I Could Only Remember My Name …,” “Voyage” (Atlantic/Rhino). Crosby’s 1971 solo debut is expanded and issued with a DVD DTS surround mix; “Voyage” is a three-disc box chronicling Crosby’s entire career.
  • Daughtry, “Daughtry” (RCA). Let’s see: You’re Chris Daughtry, a nobody who lucks out into becoming an “American Idol” favorite. So what do you do for your first album? You drop half your name _ the only brand identity you have _ and go all pretentious on us. Chris, leave the single name thing to legit stars like Madonna, Cher, Bono and Sting.
  • Kenny G, “I’m in the Mood for Love … The Most Romantic Melodies of All Time” (Arista). Do you really want to hear Kenny G and his soprano sax on them?
  • Il Divo, “Siempre” (Sony).
  • Jay-Z, “Kingdom Come” (Roc-a-Fella).
  • KISS, “Alive! 1975-2000” (Island). Four-disc box set of live KISS albums.
  • Loreena McKennitt, “An Ancient Muse” (Verve).
  • George Michael, “Twenty Five” (Sony). 29-song retrospective, includes Wham! material and solo hits tracing his last quarter century.
  • Robert Plant, “Nine Lives” (Rhino/Warners). Plant’s nine solo albums, remastered with extra material and a DVD.
  • 2Pac, “Pac’s Life” (Interscope). His heirs milk more money for the estate. He’s put out more albums dead than alive.
  • U2, “18 Singles” (Interscope). Greatest hits set includes a new duet with Green Day.
  • Tom Waits, “Orphans” (Anti). The songs that got away, on three discs.
