Re: Reissues project

It's also entirely possible these were completely recorded during Fundamental and simply re-recorded later to eliminate producer and or additional musician royalties. Or perhaps recorded during Fundamental but simply not mixed until a later date.

Re: Dancers or no dancers? *Poll*.

If they're doing something like the "Performance" tour, then they're essential. But for the more concert ortiented productions they add nothing and even detract. The dancer for the "Somewhere" concerts was an extraneous element that didn't suit the show. I voted no.

Re: Reissues project

OK, I don't get PSB posting these albums on Pledge Music at all. They're not a band like OMD who are probably using the pre-order cash for manufacturing product. They aren't offering anything exclusive like extra disc editions, and the albums have been available for pre-order on Amazon and elsewhere...

Re: Depeche Mode Live versus PSB Live

Someone said on another thread that they thought PSB had become all about the shows and the albums are just an excuse to tour. That's exactly how I think Depeche Mode has operated since Songs of Faith and Devotion. Being all about the tour (and losing Alan Wilder of course) has resulted in very unev...

PSB/KLF Christmas Single

If memory serves, in an issue of Literally Neil mentioned that The KLF had approached PSB about collaborating on a Christmas single in 1991. PSB were keen to do it but The KLF never followed-up. Does anyone have a scan of this page from Literally? I used to have it, but sold the back issues to other...

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

I wonder if they'll release a single or EP to promote these? Last time around they released a single of "Closer to heaven" along with issues of the Daily Mail. It was supposedly to promote the musical, but the first batch of reissues were happening simultaneously.

Re: "Copyright issues"- Some speculation

Don't forget PSB went through several US labels during this period. If they hope to release them in the US rather than just as imports this could be something they need to sort out.

Re: Would you like to see a PSB media movement in order to increase their sales?

I remember when I was in high school/college I used to loathe the level of attention and adoration classic rock acts would get when they released a new album and wonder why people were still stuck on these legacy acts rather than listening to something new. I have no expectation that young people wo...

Re: Short tracks on Super

I get why most of the tracks on Super are short as the songs seemed to suit themselves to this format. The one that could have (should have) been given the extended treatment is Burn.

Re: Up to 13 years of mystery and speculation nearly over....

I have little to no hope these remasters will be announced in April, I'm thinking May. BTW, wouldn't it make more sense to release the complete box first, then the individual albums later, unless the plan is to release the individual albums first, then add exclusive content in the box forcing us all...

Re: Trying to be fair about the level of PSB's music nowadays

Different strokes I know, but for me the Price albums are where PSB got their groove back. I feel like they lost the plot after Very and everything from Bilingual through Elysium has been either watered down, off the mark, or a seemingly endless exploration of synths into strings. Sure, I've listene...

Re: Undertow CDS

My take: Tuff City Kids mix: 10/10 Very reminiscent of 80s Shep Pettibone mixes and 80s New Order 12" versions. Like the Electric album, there is a lot of space in the music. Remixes don't get any better than this. Devices Super Version: 6 or 7/10 Over-wrought, deep house arrangement of the song. An...

The original Japan bonus 3" extended mix of "This must be the place..." would be a welcome addition as well.
