The Reissue Thread!

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by Eric Generic, Oct 19, 2009.

  1. Yeah I'd also like all the B-sides and maybe some demos and unreleased songs.
    I'm not really interested in remixes as we already have 2 mini box sets of those.

  2. While he's at it, could he redo all the albums since 1993?
  3. If this 18-disc set turns out to be reissues of Depeche Mode's albums, it just proves Anfunny's point from awhile ago that it seems to be the trend of reissuing albums together instead of individual reissues.

    I don't mind it as long as there are more "wants" than "don't wants".

  4. We need Anfunny back. I said it wouldn't be the same without him!

  5. Right?! I still remember specific posts from him. And I need his review of the Mel & Kim box set. Because it's from Tom Parker, I assume he will love it.

  6. He is mentioned in the 'Thanks', so I think he was involved somehow.
  7. So have Depeche Mode put a halt to the 12" singles box sets? I would have thought they'd at least make it Violator, as that seems to be the most in demand.
    I'm intrigued by the "Mode" box set but hoping the content will be interesting. I agree the demos included in the Sounds of the Universe box set were a very nice treat, although I didn't go back to them.

  8. I think that might just be wishful thinking on most peoples part. The rumours I've heard seem to be for a career spanning vinyl LP box with a book.

    Obviously, a CD set with a few unreleased bits and pieces would be infinitely preferable, but my money's on vinyl for this one.

    Edit: Wrong! Looks like this is a CD box and will be released on the 22nd November.

  9. Also, just chiming into say Ultra, Playing the Angel and Spirit are all great albums.
    Ben Hillier did a good job bringing them back loud and clear after the questionable Exciter, but, he completely out-stayed with welcome for, not one, but two albums.
    There are moments on both Sounds of the Universe and Delta Machine I truly enjoy (Wrong, Fragile Tension, Alone), I rarely go back to listening to these albums, listening to Spirit now and they truly stepped up their game with this album, Fail is such a dark moment, I love it.
    Ultra was the perfect album to follow post Alan leaving, the producer knew exactly what he was doing with the trio, the album sounded so current for 1997 electronica but also kept those signature Depeche Mode elements.

  10. Agreed regarding ‘Ultra’, it is very good.

    I have a slight liking for ‘Exciter’ but doubt I’ve listened to anything since more than once through, if at all. A few good singles here and there.

  11. Ultra (especially), Spirit (a lot) and Exciter get continued listens... PTA and SOTU less so. Delta Machine never.
    If the box set is just album reissues then I’m not so interested.

  13. A few rarities, but mostly the same old same old. Would love UB40's Food For Thought to be the 45 version, which was around 15 seconds longer than the version used on all CDs that I know of thus far. But of course it won't be.....

  14. Disc 1 makes me want to rip my ears off in frustration at the S.O.S. every bloody time. CD2 ends bizarrely, do people actually listen to this track order before it gets pressed up? I can see the possible fun they had with Vega following Vela, but then to go from Luka to Keeping The Dream Alive is pure WTF-ery.

    I do like the run mid-CD3 of JoBoxers, Stray Cats and Roman Holliday. There should have been more of that, instead of the S.O.S.

  15. 100 % agree.

    Disc 3 isn't bad.

    Pity some more thought wasnt put into track selection

  16. Do they sell these compilations at petrol/gas stations? Tainted Love. Do You Really Want To Hurt Me. Don't You Want Me. Poison Arrow. Come On Eileen. One can never own too many copies of those.

  17. @ohnoitisnathan I am disappointed in you. You left out the most overlooked '80s song: You Spin Me Round (Like a Record). The song is barely featured on '80s compilations.

    So neglected! The Pop (In)Justice!
  18. Ah, but that's Stock Aitken Waterman, so it's acceptable. (But where, oh where, are Never Gonna Give You Up and Venus?!)

  19. 80s


    Another new 80's cd Compilation coming soon.

    The one stand out track is Sheila E. The Belle Of St. Mark which is hopefully the single version which has never been on cd.

  20. Can you tell me, is the single version used in this video below (which, I believe was used to promote the single)... or is it an actually live performance? If the latter, I am impressed! It just... sounds too good to be live to my ears.

    Whatever it is, I much prefer it to the (other?) studio version I've heard.

    edit - re-watching it now, I see that the sax is nowhere near a mic when it's played, so I guess it's studio. But... the ending really makes it seem like it's live.
