As much as I love this album the latest vinyl versions due 1/12 make me feel that the world has gone mad! The album has been hybridised so that each “work of art” includes one side of the album and includes no new material or alternate versions of the tracks. All for £285 each or a bargain £500 if you order them both together. For anyone interested there is more info on the Super Deluxe Edition website.
What a ridiculous waste of resources. All it does is extract more money from wealthy old people with money to burn. Pathetic.
The ‘Pounds of Love’?
Running up that Bill (A Deal With Goods)…?
The Ninth Wave (goodbye to half a grand)
Perfect for a hifi forum then.
Life imitates satire once more:
The forthcoming SACD’s of these are 30 dollars each…
A percentage (unknown) of sales go to the War Child charity, who Kate has supported before.
They aren’t ‘records’ as such, not meant to be played, I guess, but ‘art’ pieces (to put on show near the stereo for some buyers, perhaps).
This will of course provoke outrage. How very dare she…
I’d rather buy some proper original art from a new artist, but to each their own. I told my wife about this, thinking that it was effectively one song per side, and she commented that it was hardly ideal given the age of Forum members.
Magritte wants a word:
When I get home from school, I’m going to ask my Mummy all about Kate Bush
My mummy hadn’t heard of her, so I’m going to ask granny.
“There Goes a Tenner”
I’ll get my coat as they say
Well, some people just love throwing their money at blatant cash grabs from record companies. Just a few months ago there was a flurry of excitement on the Classical music thread about Decca’s yet another new remastering of the Solti Ring. Costing about £400. Sheer madness.
