The Reissue Thread!

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

  1. I love 'Heart In Motion' & 'House Of Love' as albums. Her early releases has good stuff on them but I find overly Christian music grates on me.

  2. How many Christmas albums does one person need, Amy Grant?

  3. Home for Christmas has become an essential Christmas album in my house, I don’t think I need the other 2.

  4. The Cherry Red Best Of went past In The Running and featured tracks from later albums so I am wondering if they might continue?

  5. Her first Christmas album is very good. Heirlooms is one of Amy's best songs.

    A Christmas to Remember is not bad, although it didn't feature her best song as part of the track listing - her cover of The Carpenters' "Merry Christmas Darling".

    Home for Christmas remains her best Christmas album.

  6. Yes, I'd forgotten about that comp. We shall have to see!
     
  7. This is ridiculous. The entire 'Heart In Motion' album and every released remix easily fit on just two discs with a bit of space to spare.

    Another great example of how frustratingly random these deluxe editions can be. "Just fill a CD with this incomplete assortment of tracks from that era. No need for basic research, or regard for logical sequencing".

    Instead, they should be releasing:
    1 - The remastered album plus the previously unreleased songs on the first disc (also released separately for casual listeners who just want the album remastered and a few "new" things to hear.)
    2 - Two bonus discs with all of the remixes from 1991-1992. (Plenty of room for the live and demo recordings to go here or on the first disc)
    3 - A DVD with the five music videos (plus alternate versions), and maybe an EPK or interview from the era.

    Easy.
     
  8. I agree. And Amy already had her albums remastered in 2007 and then Lead Me On had a 2-disc reissue. Not too hard to give us all the mixes.

    Weird thing is they had a special edition of an Amy comp some years back with some mixes so they know fans want them.

  9. It does seem to be a thing now with some reissues. The original album on the first CD with no bonus tracks. It's wasted space but some artist want the original album untouched (aside from remastered).

  11. Speaking of Amy Grant, I'm an atheist, but I love the tune (not so much the lyrics ddd) of this song she did for Christian Television in the 80s.

  12. eBay seller caved before I did and offered a hefty discount from the £180 I was ridiculously toying with paying and now it’s cost £140. Which is still not cheap but it’s a sealed box set so I still get to have the new CDs smell.

    The things I come up with to justify it…

    Edit. It arrived in a foam packed box (presumably the one the seller received it in!) - it’s a lovely thing. But the music fan I am, I can’t understand buying it to keep sealed. Suppose it’s a second copy perhaps but then that annoys me more that it was bought to resell at inflated prices…

  13. Massive ATZEC CAMERA boxset on the way later this summer!

    Covers the Warner years...so 1983-1995, I think. Let's hope the bonus material is better sourced than on those Edsel hardbook 2CD affairs.

  14. Starts with Knife (1984) - might be good
     
  15. Only issue with the Aztec Camera set unless my eyesight has missed it, still no single mix of Walk Out To Winter which I think is only found on the 3" CDS for Somewhere In My Heart.

  16. Yes, you either get the shorter album version or the 12" mix. I am pretty sure I don't have it on anything - there's a Japanese Guitar Pop Jamboree compilation in a box upstairs which I must check. One of the others in the series has the extended version.

  17. Ah right, so they're leaving High Land as a Rough Trade era album, as per the original release.
     
  18. The 7" edit of All I Need Is Everything was wrong on the Edsel release as well.
    The 45 is 4.00, it faded way short, and ended up around 13 seconds short. It was the 45 edit apart from that mind you.

    Looks like this might be a clone of the Edsel CD of Knife as well - same 4 bonus tracks after the main album, they've moved the 4 live tracks to an expanded version of that concert on CD2.

  20. Cherry Red does seem to be releasing a lot of great sets this year -- there's a Vapors one coming and the second volume for Level 42.
