I am not familiar with many.
Hope we might see Buried Treasure 1980s.

Though it’s obvious to say the pandemic, there does seem to be a drastic lessening in SDEs currently. No such lessening in coloured vinyl versions of albums we already have. Does anyone think the age of SDEs may be behind us?
I admit to suffering from extreme vinyl “store-exclusive-with little-or-no-additional-content” fatigue. I think fans will always be willing to pay extra, but only if the content is curated with attention and care - that we often see here on the forum - to the end product. Another lazy coloured vinyl/half hearted attempt at remastering/sourcing masters simply won’t do. On that note, the Laura Nyro set looks great, but at £160 a pop, it’s too too much.I think the crazed vinyl fad will go on, to pull every last penny out of the pockets of 50+ hedge fund managers desperately trying to reclaim their youth. But otherwise I think we're nearing the end of the road. There are only so many things that people will pay for, and most people don't even own a CD player any more. The Cherry Red model of strictly limited short runs of specialised reissues for a very specific market would seem to be the last one left for pop fans. I think The Seeds Of Love was a watershed here - it felt (to me) like the end.

So much good stuff there, think I'll be having some of that! CD 3 in particular looks immense!
Talking about CD special editions, what has happened to the Vinnie Vero stuff with Wang Chung, Climie Fisher, Living In A Box... and now Olive N-J. Will they see the light of day. God, I hope so.
I'm wanting to know what happened to his Mari Wilson set. It most be about 7 years or so since that was first mooted.Talking about CD special editions, what has happened to the Vinnie Vero stuff with Wang Chung, Climie Fisher, Living In A Box... and now Olive N-J. Will they see the light of day. God, I hope so.
Notable that it contains the two best U2 singles in "Hold Me..." and "Miss Sarajevo". And CD3 is a great mix of grittier dance hits and interesting guitar pop. But Kula Shaker? Ocean Colour Scene? HARD PASS.
Go West I assume will be tied to the tour, so pre Xmas I hope. Living In A Box... still want those Phil Harding mixes of LIAB and Unique he catalogued in his book.Go West, too.
The long wait/delay for TFF's Seeds box at least gives us hope that things do eventually surface.
