Re: Reissues project

Funny indeed. You find Bieber on vinyl, plus many of the €1 bin titles you find in second hand record stores are being re-released as well.

Re: Reissues project

More and more of these are being re-released now which will affect the value of the initial releases though. I doubt that that is the case. A first pressing remains a first pressing. There will always be people who prefer that, especially when the re-issues contain (mastering) errors or omit bonus ...

Reissues project

All I can say is... it's too late. PSB had to re-release their Vinyls 10-15 years ago. I know a lot of people who don't care about singles, albums, concerts, tours and etc now... In 2002, 750k LPs were sold in the UK; in 2007, it was 200k. Last year it was 4 million. Nearly as many people bought th...

Re: Disco 2 reissue on vinyl ??

Disco 1 definitely deserves a remaster. It's an important page of their catalogue, not just for its concept, but also because in some ways it merges better than "Please" their european dance sensibility and their early american influences. Disco 2 makes sense if combined with Relentless, while volu...

Re: "It Couldn't Happen Here" on DVD

DVD is a 90s format that is almost dead. No hopes here. Even bluray is dying, certainly for music film releases. They could release it on Netflix or what have you but it will have to be an HD widescreen master, otherwise it will not happen. I suspect most masters that exist are SD 4:3 letterbox (use...

No need to convert them, they’re all on Youtube in better quality and sound than VHS (Laserdisc transfers).

Re: This is breaking my heart

Tried to sell several music VHS releases (Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Bowie, Suede) in vain years ago on eBay. Really, nobody is interested. I believe I have DiscoVery, Highlights, Somewhere, and Promotion or one of the other video albums. They're in my attic, you can pm me if you're interested. But k...

Re: Years and years & PSB

"it's still being decided who will take that one" = PSB want to release it on their next album as PSB feat. Olly Alexander and he probably want it the other way around who gets to decide if they've agreed 50/50 writing credits? It depends who owns the publishing rights. Writing credits are irreleva...

On the other hand I've never seen the appeal of "Sgt. Pepper's", I find it really contrived and cheesy.
Indeed it is. It is the only Beatles CD I own, last time I listened to it was probably two weeks after I bought it in 1992 or so. The Beatles is just not my thing.
