Kylie Minogue

he / him
‘Almost A Lover’ came up on shuffle and god it’s seriously one of her sleekest songs ever, no? It’s so deceptively simple on the surface but there are so many awesome little details in the production. It’s a mood. It’s a vibe.
"Almost A Lover" is perhaps my favorite b-side from the Body Language era for all of the reasons that you've listed. It's so sleek and sensual. I wish that it made the standard edition of the album instead of "I Feel For You."
 
The thing with the lenticular artwork for the 3D cover is it is EXTREMELY expensive to produce (I've been involved with some lenticular art production with photography). I think there would be a market for it, I for one would spend whatever they asked for a well-packaged 3D sleeved vinyl, but how big that market would be, I'm not sure. Then there will be all those fans who endlessly complain about the price, without knowing what goes into production.

Who knows, maybe one day we'll get lucky. For now, I'm just happy that we'll finally get this on vinyl. I'm with you on the hot pink, and orange would be good too.

The recent Ash album on BMG/Infectious was £50 for the lenticular version - so, that will give you an idea of how much a similar Kylie edition would be.

Well, I thought it would be in the hundreds at retail and would still be prepared to pay that so...

I guess with quantities and not being made in New Zealand means it's a fraction of the cost to produce than what I've been involved with!

Which really means there is no reason it can't be done.

Almost a Lover would’ve made the original album so much better. The Kylie co-written b-sides/ bonus tracks are better than a lot of the album tracks (City Games and Slow Motion too).
 
I always thought it was a shame Disco didn’t get the same super deluxe 12” book treatment. The Golden one is gorgeous, I know they made a few too many but you’d think there’s enough demand to justify doing them.
 
The single artwork for it too:
