The Reissue Thread!

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

  1. I was looking at getting the Pat Benatar ones but I think I'll stick to my albums collection.
     
  2. I fell down a Richard Darbyshire rabbit-hole (like you do) after I read about Japan's upcoming reissue, and I came away wishing he'd get a Cherry Pop release. I really liked his song with Tina Arena.

    I'm tempted to track down the CD singles but I'm bummed This I Swear only has the Morales/Knuckles radio mix. Was there a longer mix that ever made it off of vinyl?

  3. Not sure if it's on this : Soul Lounge (2005, CD) - Discogs

    EDIT; Just checked, only 3:54 in length.

  4. This drives me crazy, especially since digital releases don't have the same time limitations as physical formats. 'Funky Divas' deserves so much better. 8 bonus tracks is practically nothing.

    I made my own Ultimate Edition a while back using (I believe) everything from this era that was made available on CD...that's 71 tracks!

  5. Amazing. Adding only eight bonus tracks is really insulting considering the number of singles released and the amount of mixes.

  6. I’d snap this up in a heartbeat. En Vogue deserves better, truly. Especially since their debut raised the bar for what music lovers should expect from girl groups, and their follow up created the definitive new rock/hip hop/pop template for girl groups. Legends.
     
  7. We are not worthy. Incredible work.

  8. Okay, wig.

    This is really what the release should’ve looked like! I don’t get why labels bother releasing such piss-poor editions instead.

  9. Most of time their hands are tied with what the original label will allow or can find.

  10. Oh, but isn’t Rhino a Warner company just like the original release’s label eastwest is? Ugh, label politics are confusing.
     
  11. I'm not even sure Rhino exists anymore, and Warners may be EMI owned now.
     
  12. Hmm… I guess I was just confused by the bottom of the US page for this:
     
  13. It's a mess, isn't it. Maybe the Elektra division has stayed with Warners. Or maybe the whole lot of WB imprints are covered by EMI but they don't bother saying. Actually I don't recall Rhino being "Rhino Entertainment Company" - used to be plain old Rhino Records. So there's been some fiddling around going on!

  14. Rhino's still active but I think they just mostly put out compilations and re-issues now?
     
  15. The digital-only album boxsets for Chic and Laura Branigan bore the Rhino credit, but that was in 2020 (maybe even 2019, I lose track of the time now) and Warners had a bit of a shake-up last year (new logo, a split with the audio and visual divisions or something, plus EMI were involved).

    It might be that Warners now own EMI, and I've got it completely arse-about-face.
     
  16. EMI is owned by Universal now and it's just one of their labels these days. Warner Music owns Parlophone which might be what you are thinking of? Rhino is Warner's re-issue and catalogue division like Legacy is for Sony.

  17. Ok, so, where can I buy??!

  18. So I've finally played all the ones I snagged. Seven the Hard Way (this is my favorite of the lot. I only knew the singles but this is a great little album!), True Love, Get Nervous, and Tropico are all fairly quiet and sound like most pre 90's CD's. Oddly, Precious Time sounds completely remastered and is as loud as the modern CD's I played in succession.

    I forgot to get Wide Awake in Dreamland with my order but given the mastering is what it is for the majority of the others, I'm not too upset.
