Having missed out on the recent Siouxsie and the Banshees ‘Once upon a time - The Singles’ vinyl re-release and dithered about getting the Sade box set, and missed it, just wondered if there would be any merit in a forthcoming vinyl re-release thread?
I noticed the other day that Japan’s Quiet Life is getting a half-speed re-release - about £24.99 for ‘red vinyl’, more like £50 for a set with some CDs and a booklet.
Carol King’s Tapestry is getting a 50th re-release, this is one I probably (yes, I’m not sure) don’t have and am tempted.
My view is that these threads could work well together. This thread would be about sharing information about re-releases you have found out about, you might not be interested in them though. The other thread is more about your own personal wish list.
I get a regular email from Cherry Red Records about upcoming releases https://www.cherryred.co.uk/ which I find helpful in giving me more ideas about how to empty my bank account.
That was my thought - had I known about the Siouxsie re-release in advance I could have ordered when in stock, checked many times after it sold out and did not find it back in stock.
Naturally we all have different tastes, and there may only be an occasional item of interest. Probably more useful if things are going to be limited releases, but it’s not always apparent if that’s the case or not (Sade box set for example).
Why not merge this with the last vinyl you bought thread.
Great idea to share information on upcoming releases but wont they end up on the last vinyl thread anyway once “bought”.
I always thought the Last Vinyl… thread was a bit limited in scope, would prefer to see an all encompassing vinyl release thread and include used vinyl as well. Just my thoughts.
I don 't know about a box set, but there were a load of Sylvian vinyl reissues - Brilliant Trees, Secrets of the Beehive, Gone to Earth etc… - a couple of years back. I have most of them and they’re very good indeed.
