The Reissue Thread!

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.
I love Wide Awake. All Fired Up is priceless.
Is there a way of knowing where it will be stocked or are all the stores getting stock of all the titles?
I used to call my local stores - some know what they’ll get and will at least give you a target store to visit. I got to one an hour early few years ago and still at least 15 ahead of me. Happy enough with what I got but bit of a scrum to get near the goodies…

after this treat this year if I can make it to one

NOW 1982 Extra 18th March .
Have to confess I don't know a lot of these but always nice to see The Kids From Fame. 1982 is just a bit before my time but I'm really looking forward to seeing the tracklists for the NOW Yearbook Extras for 87-89.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor's first four albums are getting re-releases on formats other than vinyl. They're coming via Plastic Pop who did the recent Nicola Roberts re-release. There aren't too many bonuses on each album but it'll be nice to have the B-sides together.

Tbh a copy of Make a Scene with an unmixed version of Dear Jimmy is my main draw! But the six bonus tracks on ‘…Fantastic’ might warrant a purchase too

Trip is definitely the one that excites me the most although for UK PJers it only has four bonus tracks really as Can't Have It All (which is actually one of my favourite Trip songs) and Supersonic were on the original UK release.
