Kylie Minogue

I understand she's planning complete reissues later in her carrer, but a CD reissue would be nice... we know there are some unreleased tracks...
It would be nice to release the original album with BIR
  • Impossible Princess [later retitled 'Dreams' and included on the album]
  • (All Right) Now
  • You're The One ]
  • Looking Down On Me
  • Love Takes Over Me
  • Drunk
  • Cowboy Style
  • Did It Again (Clever Girl)
  • Stay With You
  • Take Me With You
  • Stay This Way
  • Free
  • Miles

This is such an cool concept. I SO need You're The One in my life in particular.
 
I know it seems like the preserve of wankish Minogue fans to say this, but I really do love Impossible Princess. It makes sense to me. The sales didn't, but everything else did. That's how female artists sounded in the '90s. Honestly, I was so disappointed when she went with Light Years, because it felt so backwards to me. Obviously in hindsight it was the best thing for her and her trajectory.
 
I'd love for a reissue of Impossible Princess (actually, a reissue of every album), but I'm doubtful we'd get one. Naturally, Kylie seems to be very protective of the songs recorded during that time.

I’m right in thinking that a studio version of Free was never recorded? It was just for Intimate & Live?
Kylie claims it was never recorded, but the Headless Postman said that they'd heard a very rough studio demo.

I think both statements are true. Kylie likely means that it never went to full production (which is something I'm sure I've read an interview about a decade ago where Steve Anderson confirms as well) but there's likely a reference take of it recorded in a room somewhere.

Just had a flashback to reading this track list in the IKN fanzine. Ah, time flies don’t it gworls.

I love IP. After almost a decade of being a world class pop star, this is where she proved to me she's got real artistic chops. She did it, she doesn't need to do it again. And Breathe is in my Kylie top 5.

The only mistake she made was Did It Again. It should have been called Clever Girl and she should have dressed up as Charlene in the video. Everything else? I love to deaf.

I don’t think we’d have Light Years, Fever, or maybe the entirety of her revived career without Impossible Princess for many reasons, but one is how the artistry of the album permeated through everything that followed it. Never before had Kylie been so dynamic, expressive, or varied. Especially with her vocals, she experimented with deliveries she’d mold and perfect for her modern pop records.

Totally agree. I get frustrated when some fans who only became converts after Fever play down her wilderness years. It can’t be easy to overcome the public’s rejection of Impossible Princess after she’s put so much of herself into it. And then to bounce back the way she did (it didn’t come easily either). I think it speaks not only to her talent but also to her strength as a person. We all love a good comeback, but some comebacks are more special than others. I’ll forever be a fan.
 
Somebody reliable on SayHey (they posted about A Second to Midnight and Infinite Disco vinyl) posted about a new song called “Hold On” and then the entire thread was mysteriously deleted so make of that what you will. It’s highly unlikely that a new album is ready to go though, as she’s said she’s booked a studio and recording in July.

It makes me sad that Kylie will probably never sign off for unreleased material to see the light of day. It was like pulling teeth to get what was included on Hits+!

I think she was the one who pushed for This Girl to be included on the re-release? I remember reading something about her having the only copy of the track at that time.

I imagine Kylie's not opposed to unlocking the vault, I think she's probably just a lot more protective over the Deconstruction era tracks.

Yeah I don’t see anything coming until the tail end of the year (at the earliest), but I do think 2023 will be another great year.

Like you said, she has a villa booked to work in over July, so it’s clear she’s looking to get quite a bit of work done.

I think the problem with Hits+ was Kylie wasn’t consulted on it. And her team only found out about it when it was advertised.

She made them change the artwork to the straight red hair look so that it would not be confused with the Light Years campaign at the time. And she pulled some songs.

I can understand why she was frustrated with the Hits+ release. She wanted to go pop post Decon, was focusing on becoming a big pop act again and was about to kick off
the Light Years campaign. Then this compilation of her “indie” stuff was released.

I’m sure when done right Kylie would support the release of the unreleased stuff. I’m guessing if the vinyl repressing of IP does well she would consider it.

Does anyone know what the original track list was meant to be?

I can't find the tracklist anymore but it was meant to include the singles + quite a lot of the Rapino sessions tracks from 1993. Eventually only Gotta Move On and Difficult By Design remained on it.
