Madonna

Now in HD


I know we're supposed to hate the photographer and root for the younger boyfriend but I aways found the photographer hotter. And I always screamed when she sprayed the car. Sassy!

Also the parallels of the video story to Angel's in Pose! Amazing.

This was her first proper video moment so many iconic scenes. The breakdancers in slo mo! The almost La Isla Bonita look 3 years earlier! The stiletto kick! The billiard being missed. The Keith Harring skirt! The GLOSS magazine I always wanted to own dd.
 
The edits are rough on the Borderline 7" Remix, which suggests that it was cut down from a longer version. Hopefully, it's unearthed as part of the upcoming reissues.
 
For me, providing the wrong mixes / edits, and even getting them mixed up, just as they did with Borderline on the digital download / streaming versions of the Immaculate Collection and the debut album, suggests to me there hasn’t been much progress in terms of cataloguing her back catalogue and therefore a deluxe reissue is no longer looking hopeful in the near future, for the debut at least.
I hope to be proven wrong, because I’ve been looking forward to this campaign to finally begin, but now I’m wondering if the press statement was just referring to record store day / anniversary reissues like Erotica picture disc, and Finally Enough Love was actually the release they were referring to when it mentioned Madonna would be personally curating these releases, as we saw she did with this compilation.

No, they said deluxe albums and special releases (like RSD).

Only love for some new wave Madonna!


Regarding the digital release of Borderline, it seems they are back to the old method of sourcing the best available tracks from CDs and putting them up online without any real remastering process (which is why the three mixes vary so much in quality). It's what happened for the majority of singles available online and it's cool to see they'll keep this going regardless of the deluxe reissues status.

Everybody and Gambler were newly remastered for their digital release and are available for Hi-Res streaming. I think the Erotica picture disc also had remasters on it but I cannot confirm.
I also love that they have used the Madonna font from the Holiday 12" Australian single. Love this cover.
