The Reissue Thread!

  1. Thrilled about the Amy Grant reissue, Heart In Motion is a great early 90s album and I've wanted those single remixes for 30 years.

  2. When the Scritti reissues were first mentioned I’m sure they were meant to be expanded. Probably in for ‘Anhomie...’ on vinyl.

  3. Even I may give that Amy Grant an album a go!

  4. Great album. Will probably get this for the bonus stuff, even though I literally got 2 of them earlier this week on a different/later CD single!
  5. Seems a nice re issue too.
  6. Wasn't there a single mix of 'That's what love is for' as well?
  7. There is stuff missing including 'Every Heartbeat' 12'' Mix. I suppose we got unreleased tracks instead of some things to keep it 2 CD.
  8. Does anyone know if it is available to order to the UK?
  9. I couldn't see it on Amazon UK so I ended up ordering on the US site assuming this might be US only, but it could pop up in the UK, in which case I'll cancel my preorder and order again.

  10. It would be nice if we could have Springsteens - Born In The USA get a deluxe treatment ie 12inches and b sides etc

  11. Never heard any non-Baby Baby Amy Grant song but have always seen this album praised so I may take a chance on it.

  12. I love Heart in Motion, but it really should be a 3-disc set with DVD.

    I have a Japanese maxi-single with mixes of both Baby Baby and Every Heartbeat and several of those mixes don't appear on this. But I'll still get it because I love Amy, and pop-era Amy.
  13. The singles are all top-notch. In fact, I think all the singles after Baby Baby are superior. I've always loved Every Heartbeat (it would wrestle with Lead Me On to be my 11 in an Amy Grant rate) and That's What Love Is For and I Will Remember You are fabulous ballads.

    The follow-up House of Love is also very strong. Although it tried a bit too hard to be Heart in Motion: The Sequel, it's still worthwhile. Amy recorded The Power, a few years before it was featured on Cher's Believe album. And she also recorded "Oh, How The Years Go By", recorded by Vanessa Williams as well.
  14. Every heartbeat is a pure summer song. I prefer it as well.

  16. I prefer Lead Me On as an album, though always classed as a Christian Rock album, the title track and 1974 are breathtakingly amazing and worth hearing for Amy’s vocal performances.

  17. My favourite songs on Heart In Motion weren't among the many hits....Ask Me and How Can We See That Far. Absolutely sublime.

  18. Her reading of If These Walls Could Speak remains my favourite. It has an ethereal quality to it.

  19. Written and first recorded by Simon "Clime Fisher" Climie, too.

  20. She’s poetic in a way that others aren’t. Poignant imageries that serves the song as opposed to being showy, as some writers can be.
