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

Well look what we have here.... http://www.culture.si/en/Nika_Records
Established in 2005, Nika Records is an official representative of Warner and Croatian Records. It works across many genres of music and aims to support new trends in music.
Very obscure indeed. :wall:

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

How on earth would a fake tracklisting end up on an obscure Slovenian website? Of course these are real. How did details of the vinyl releases appear on eastern European online shops months ago? Maybe because some local representation of Warner has leaked information that they were not yet supposed...

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

Has anybody checked if the runtime adds upp? Not easy as we don't have details on some of the tracks. Also the exact versions are not always clear. There exist two demos of Vampires f.i. Gave it a shot. If anyone's able to fill in gaps, would be welcome. Totals are excluding tracks with unknown run...

The website is legit but the info on this release may be wrong. It just feels wrong somehow
It may be, in the sense that it may not be final. But it doesn't look like something that has totally been made up.

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

The last digit of an EAN is a calculated digit which facilitates checking whether the barcode has been scanned correctly. This last digit is always calculated based on the digits before that. So if the last digit does not match with the other digits, a barcode check will give an error. The 6 EAN cod...

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

Come on. The numbers could have been made up (they cannot be verified at this point anyway). The artwork has turned up in the Pet Text of 4 April 2017 — photoshopping it from the original album's covers is super easy. Oh boy... Look at the store front: https://www.nika.si/en/ Does this look like so...

The FL 81-83 is such a great idea, although negotiations with both EMI and Bobby O would probably be endless...
The 1982 stuff was recorded before they even met Bobby O. They don't have to negotiate with anyone to release that.

It must have been some wicked fan who runs this Slovenian e-shop etc.
Come on. There are catalog numbers / EAN codes on there and it's the official artwork (that hasn't turned up elsewhere until now). This is legit.

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

But what's in the box, then...? Here's my speculation (wishful thinking?) Although the first batch of 3 releases is ready to be released, they hold back the announcement until it is clear what the exact contents of the box set will be. To prevent, as earlier brought up, that people buy individual a...

Re: Undertow to be released as next single

Just ordered mines from the official site,only £8.99 Sure, but depending on where you live Amazon may be cheaper including postage. Besides that, Amazon knows how to package vinyl, the official shop doesn't. They had to resend my copy of Inner Sanctum 3 times (!) because it arrived damaged everytim...

Re: Say it to Me : the next single!

There's a separate seller listing a promo on eBay which, I guess, lends some credence to the first. No catalog numbers, however. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pet-Shop-Boys-Say-It-To-Me-Rare-1-Track-CD-Promo-Mint-/252489466096 And that one has "new radio edit" on the disc while the first one has "new rad...

Re: PSB played 10 " version of West End Girls

IIRC Bobby Orlando owns the rights to the original 1984 recording of West End girls so he releases (or released) a CD with new remixes every few years to cash in. I don't think PSB can do anything about it. It's not Bobby Orlando but the ZYX label. For years they kept releasing remixes of the origi...
