Re: Reissues project

Yes remaster is ruined for me by having a different version of Love Etc to the original album (beat doesn't drop out in 2nd chorus), so it's the original album everytime from now on. Same as the alternate version of I Want To Wake Up on Actually 2001 remaster with different vocal ad lib at end. Won...

Re: Reissues project

I wonder if they even have all the unreleased mixes (the leaked ones by Arthur Baker of In The Night and Paninaro ones by Ian Levine for example) at hand or whether they are deeply hidden away somewhere? Ian Levine Remix of 'Paninaro' recently appeared on '12 Inch Dance: Indie', here: https://www.a...

Re: Reissues project

I imagine that some of the old stuff might need a bit of mastering too (not that that should be too difficult) but I see no reason why they can't get this done. Mastering remixes made by others might be a challenge as the individual stems might not be accessible. For example, do they have the femal...

Re: Reissues project

My ridiculously obsessive mind wonders if Farrow will tidy up the tracklistings to match the other 2017 releases (where * is previously unreleased and ** is previously unreleased on CD) and whether they’ll address the issue in the 2001 booklets where some photos were back to front... Technically, n...

Re: Reissues project

I also came here looking for the Further Listening booklet covers for Yes and Elysium. Doesn't look anyone has done those specific ones yet? Why not just download the cover images in hi-rez digitally from online stores such as these at Amazon - particularly if you want to add as covers to your CD g...

Re: An officially released PSB track that's impossible to find online

What about 'West End Girls (DJ Hell Mix)'? Released in edited form on the 'Flamboyant' 12", I bought the full length remix digitally (WMA) from Woolworth's online store. Three computers later, I still have the file and - I think - the licence key file, but Windows 10 has no means to verify or link t...

Re: Reissues project

Must admit I didn't notice anything different in the intro of Building A Wall, but has anyone else spotted that Love Etc. is different just before the last chorus? Under "you need more than the Gerhard Richter..." there's usually a break in the rhythm track but on the new version it continues strai...

Re: Reissues project

Wonder if 'Vocal (Demo)' will be licensed from x2 to Parlophone, as the first version released came out after they left Parlophone?

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

My fantasy is that they re-do Release. With an improved tracklisting and make it as the definitive version. it's very revisionist and not really in their character, but still. I'd love it if they did. Anyway, when is there going to be some bloody news! They could remix some or all of the tracks, ma...
