It's 60 BPM, actually (manually timed). Which may explain where the 120 comes from (counted 2x too fast).

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

It seems so strange to me that noone is excited about this 2017 vinyl remaster of Nightlife being out there, apparently having been available through Amazon. Isn't it strange that this is in actual, physical circulation, without any official word? Amazon has 4 copies in stock as we speak. The produ...

Re: "Copyright issues"- Some speculation

Alone Again (Naturally), written by Gilbert O'Sullivan, is a likely candidate. And so are the Bobby O-produced tracks.

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

The thing is that now we cannot be sure of the legitimacy of revealed tracklists from Slovenian shop. You can be sure that at least at some point these were the tracks intended to be released. It could change though because of the copyright issues. If the issues lie with the boxset and anything to ...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

Looking through the Literally diary the tracklisting for Nightlife disc 1 appears to have the the songs in order of when they were FIRST worked on as opposed to completed. (...) Most bizarre is Paris city boy with vocals recorded in 2003. But strictly speaking it was FIRST worked on in the Nightlif...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

They really should release 180g vinyl of all the album They probably will. Remastered 180g vinyl versions are listed by Nika Records for Nightlife, Release and Fundamental. It wouldn't make sense not to release the other albums as well (although the Elysium original release is still available). It'...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

Another word from Nika Records. Answer on my question when we can expect official confirmation: "You probably won't have to wait longer than two weeks" For what it's worth. Even really official information about when details will be published has proven to be unreliable. But for some reaso...

Check again. They took it down this morning.

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

I contacted Nika records about where the info comes from. In the answer they say that the info was published by mistake and that they can't say anything about it because they may get into trouble. A local Warner Music representation that publishes information by mistake. Those of you that still beli...
