Image Entertainment has earmarked a mid-June release date for its two latest Blu-ray music titles, 'Heart: Alive in Seattle' and 'Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire: Live at the Greek Theatre.'

Due June 10, both Blu-ray releases trail the HD DVD editions, which Image previously released in late 2006.

Tech specs and supplement details remain consistent, with 'Heart: Alive in Seattle' enjoying 1080i video (1.78:1) and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio and Dolby Digital 5.0 Surround tracks, as well as PCM 2.0 Stereo.

'Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire: Live at the Greek Theatre' also features 1080i video (1.78:1), plus DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio and Dolby Digital tracks in full 5.1 Surround tracks, and PCM 2.0 Stereo.

Extras are sparse to non-existent on both titles, with only the Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire disc featuring a bonus track, "Drum Duel."

Suggested retail price has been set at $24.98 each.
