The Reissue Thread!

Did it get a remastered reissue? I’m not one for hunting old CDs.

Or was this meant to say it’s unlikely to be on a NOW compilation because it was on a competitor compilation?

Oh I didn't know you meant it needed to be remastered...definitely not appeared anywhere on CD since that summer of 1987 (Hits 6 and Beverly Hills Cop 2 OST). I don't think appearing on HITS back in the day now has any bearing on inclusions...since SONY more or less own the NOW brand these days.

I mean, the remastered isn’t really a condition if the disc is still in print; I just meant something I can still order on Amazon ddd.
 
Wham! - Last Christmas CD Single & Vinyl out December 15th (trying for another UK Xmas No. 1).They seem to be the same versions we got in the recent boxsets.

Yes, the tracklist is the same... btw, it's a UK only reelase at his official store. It looks it's not available on Amazon (sold out or because I'm from EU ?). It would have been nice to have a different tracklist from the boxset, but they might have pressed too many of them, so they're trying to sell some...
 
Well shucks, the new Saint Etienne reissue is only on vinyl (for now)? I’m sure it will be a lovely set but I can’t shell out £50+ for a download code right now, just to hear the unreleased material.

I’d love it if they did even a small run of CDs. Sigh. I’ve been waiting for news ever since they started teasing photos of old tapes last year.

Disco Discharge Presents
BOX OF SIN


  • 5 CDs and 54 tracks
  • Influenced by 80s gay nightlife ‘Box Of Sin’ strives to tell the story of that decade
  • Based on the actual club charts at the time
  • Stunning design inspired by the small ads section of 80s gay press
  • Illustrated with photography documenting 80s gay clubbers in action
  • The project also resurrects the much-loved brand ‘Disco Discharge’, a recognisable hallmark of quality among collectors and aficionados of club music heritage

The influence that 80s gay nightlife had on electronic music, pop music in general and the evolution of clubbing for subsequent generations is pretty much incalculable. In spite of the shadow of AIDS and reactionary political and media forces both at home and in the USA, the period 1980 – 1990 bore witness to a dazzling explosion of dance music that artfully drew a line from the peak of late-70s disco to the emergence of house and its 90s glory days. The art of the 12” single, the thrill of the remix, the rise of the superclub, the electronic spark of chart pop, the challenging of gender barriers… all had their origin in the gay clubs. It’s not unreasonable to make the claim that by the end of the 80s, virtually ALL chart pop music sounded like it had its origins on the dancefloors of Heaven nightclub!

Over 5 CDs ‘Box Of Sin’ strives to tell the story of that decade across 54 tracks, and to tease apart the strands of 80s gay clubbing to show a period of unrivalled creativity and disco diversity. Via the box’s themed discs it shows how high-energy became house, how gender-bending synth bands took over the pop charts, how pop stars the whole world over found a route to fame via the gay clubs, and how the era’s biggest producers aimed their masterworks purely at the dancefloor. High energy, deep house, Eurobeat, synthpop, divas, acid house… all combine to paint a picture of a rich and vibrant lifestyle. Along the way, ‘Box Of Sin’ unearths some overlooked gems rarely compiled today: meanwhile some of the decade’s biggest names in club music gather to get into the picture – from Whitney Houston to Dead Or Alive, Bananarama to Bronski Beat, Aretha Franklin to Inner City.

Based on the actual club charts at the time and with a stunning design package inspired by the small ads section of 80s gay press, ‘Box Of Sin’ comes fully annotated and with an introduction by renowned gay author Paul Burston. Throughout, it’s illustrated with photography documenting 80s gay clubbers in action, provided for Demon by The Bishopsgate Institute, the UK’s LGBTQ+ archive. The project also resurrects the much-loved brand ‘Disco Discharge’, a recognisable hallmark of quality among collectors and aficionados of club music heritage.

This came out in September.
 
I think the Box of Sin, especially on vinyl, is wonderful. They've done a good job collecting some of the more obscure songs, and the artwork alone is worth it. I was frustrated by the CD packaging, which is flimsy and the discs seem to have almost been glued in. It seems to be mostly sold out, so good work getting a copy!
 
There is a new box set for the Sound of Music soundtrack. It's absolutely stunning and gorgeous. Unfortunately, it's been reported that Disc 4 (which features the alternative takes and unreleased versions a.k.a. the big draw) is a duplicate of Disc 2. Craft Recordings is on top of it, though.
 
I mean, the remastered isn’t really a condition if the disc is still in print; I just meant something I can still order on Amazon ddd.
Apologies for butting in but you can find the single version on copies of this on Amazon: B000HDR99U which are going quite cheap.

Ignore the “extended” thing in the name, trading standards would have a field day with it! I’ve got a copy of the CD myself and can confirm the song starts with single intro rather than the monogamy version, despite the wording on the cover.

Thanks for the heads up! I got a friend the green-meadow vinyl for Christmas - it was allegedly limited to 500 copies worldwide - I’m curious to see how much it goes for secondhand.

Once the label sorts out the error, I’ll be watching in case the CDs go on sale!

Oh, wow. That green-meadow vinyl must look incredible if going by the CD set which I purchased.
 
End of year stuff for me
