I hope there's a lossless version somewhere.
Thanks for all the help and advice re: Duran Duran. Love this part of the forum. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. Its my birthday next week and bound to get some Amazon vouchers but have added the original CD albums to my wishlist. A lot of them are £4.99 or £5.99 each and will get that Singles Boxset used from a third party seller too.
Thanks again all.
I would go for the singles box, i have them both never regretted buying them.
Isn't the 2nd one copy protected? I saw a scan of the box on discogs or ebay....what a strange thing to do for a boxset release.
(Of course, today's drives don't have a problem with copy protected discs).
Late to this, but as my favourite subject! Youll find something interesting in every DD album (even Paper Gods and Astronaut). Do try Liberty, its flawed but an amazing pot pourri of 1989/90. Thank You, despite being named worst album ever by NME, is really good. Big Thing is quite simply an amazing album, the deluxe is a must buy.
Liberty has Serious on it, so I will never dismiss that album. There are also some other pretty decent tracks, but it was the great summer of disappointing albums from my faves (Prince, Duran, Human League) and my expectations were low anyway!
Good luck @biffy77 with Duran Duran. I didn't realize to reading your post and the responses how much I appreciate their music. I've been a fan for years but always considered myself a casual fan. I don't have a lot post-1993 but at their peak they really were incredible.
I didn't realize I had so much Duran in my collection - some of the 2010 remasters which are horrible sound-wise but the content is good; the 2-CD Rio, the CD/DVD Live at Hammersmith (which I got in a clearance sale at HMV for $10), the 2-CD reissue of Notorious ($3 in a HMV clearance sale!) and the CD/DVD of Greatest (another $3 clearance item).
I also love the 2-CD Strange Behaviour.
Funkytowngrooves have some rare titles coming back into very limited stock.

Thanks for the heads-up on this, now ordered from FTG!
(Misquoting @Eric Generic) Liberty has My Antarctica on it, so I will never dismiss that album.
Well, I like quite a lot the titletrack, too
Big Thing has grown on me massively over the last few years, helped of course by it containing easily my favourite DD single: All She Wants Is.
Think I'll contact Warners with my idea for a 10-disc Bowie: Never Let Me Down Super Deluxe Edition.....
It includes my 6-disc set
CD1: 1987 EMI America original
CD2: The Alternative Edit (Single Mixes, Vinyl Edits)
CD3: 1999 Abbey Road remaster
CD4: 2018 Loving The Alien boxset remaster
CD5: The Remixes (12" versions, remixes, promo versions)
CD6: 2018 Remix/Remake with added production & instrumentation
CD7: Glass Spider Tour #1
CD8: Glass Spider Tour #2
DVD: Glass Spider Tour
Vinyl: Never Let Me Down (Remaster)
Also features a mini replica glass spider in special presentation box (manufactured in the Zi Duang Province of an eastern country).
Wonder how many takers there might be for this?
Wang Chung Re-Issues in the Autumn.
From Vinny Vero :
'Finally! After more than two years, I am able to reveal part of the work I’ve been doing on behalf of the mighty Wang Chung.
I have been spending a lot of that time researching, curating and producing deluxe editions of the band’s first three albums - “Huang Chung”, “Points On The Curve” and “Music From The Motion Picture ‘To Live And Die In L.A.’” Currently, they are scheduled to be released during the autumn of 2019. The reissues of “Huang Chung” and “Points On The Curve” will each be available as a 3CD set, while “Music From The Motion Picture ‘To Live And Die In L.A.’” will arrive as a 2CD collection. Expect a treasure trove of bonus material including singles, b-sides, remixes, alternate versions, and live tracks, plus more demos and previously unreleased recordings than you can possibly imagine. All tracks have been sourced using the original master tapes.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, my dedicated, deluxified and delightful friends. There will be lots more to tell you in the coming weeks and months regarding Wang Chung. In fact, the plan is to release numerous projects and products through the beginning of 2021! Start saving your silver and collecting your cash. The forthcoming release of “Orchesography”, the brand new orchestral album by Wang Chung, is only the beginning! The next 18 months or so will truly be the very best dance hall days the group’s faithful legion of fans could fathom. So, let’s go!'
I actually like this. Never Let Me Down gets too much flack.
Has anybody mentioned these Gold albums for Kiki Dee and Brotherhood Of Man?
Also there is a Average White Band Gold compilation.

With the release of the Elton John Film "Rocketman" i was thinking perhaps we would see some deluxe editions or even a cd single boxset with the 7inches & 12inches and b-sides, but NO we just get Diamonds... come on Reg get your shit together.
Yeah, isn't Diamonds being reissued again?
I'm surprised we are not getting another deluxe edition with covers by Ed Sheeran.
