Bros: “Push” reissue improved thanks to SuperDeluxeEdition readers

push_improved

Cherry Red Records have made a last minute change to their reissue of Bros’ 1988 album Push –  first announced via this blog  earlier this month – and it’s all down to the passion and enthusiasm of SuperDeluxeEdition readers!

The triple-CD set, with its massive amount of rare remixes, was very well received, but a number of you pointed out that the classic seven-inch remixes – i.e. the singles versions that were played on the radio – were a disappointing omission. Since this blog is well read by ‘industry’ and fans alike, this feedback was picked up on, internally at Cherry Red, and in consultation with licensor Sony, they have secured the tapes and are adding the seven-inch versions of When Will I Be Famous, I Owe You Nothing, Drop The Boy and I Quit.

Matt Ingham from Cherry Red said the following:  “Having read the fans’ comments on SuperDeluxeEdition, we realised there was an opportunity to make this celebration of Bros’ “Push” even better. To that end, we are pleased to announce that four seven-inch remixes from the UK singles will be appended to CD 1″.

This is fantastic news for the fans and we applaud Cherry Red for taking on board the feedback offered and making the change.

    Please let them re-address the Dee C. Lee Shrine 2CD tracklist, and include the two missing 7″ A-sides they’ve left off…

    Let’s hear it for people power, haha. That’s much better news, I’m glad that Sony and Cherry Red saw the error of their ways!

  3. Howard Trigg says:

    Thats EXCELLENT! Nice to hear record companies actually listen. Cherry Red certainly seem like a company to reckon with when it comes to resissues.
    I just wish Warners would reissue Madonna’s albums (properly). Her 3 reissues were shit and unworthy.
    Warner should take note.

  4. Gary says:

    I am not a fan of Bros and will not be buying this under any circumstances. Nevertheless, I think it’s wonderful that the record company heard the fans and was able to make changes to the finished product.

  5. Ally says:

    Agreed that the Madonna remasters were poorly done, with a small number of randomly selected extended versions attached. With M on a new label, it’s unlikely that WB will re-do these.

    • Howard Trigg says:

      I think that gives them more reason to release them. They will own the copyright and will want to continue to make money from her, so hopefully that means worthy reissues.
      I still can’t believe that Madonna’s 25 years in the business was ignored… unbelievable.

  6. Stephen K says:

    If there are some forthcoming Thompson Twins reissues, let me suggest this: keep disc one of an album reissue as the album only (go ahead and waste that extra space). Put the 7″ mixes out on a definitive singles collection CD. If you have bonus material on a 2nd disc that won’t all fit, and doesn’t justify a 3rd disc, then okay, append some bonus material to the 1st disc.

    This Bros release looks better with the 7″ mixes on the 1st disc than without them.

    You know? Go ahead and make that Thompson Twins singles collection a CD+DVD set of 7″ mixes and music videos. That way, people who want the DVD will have to get the CD, which, even though totally worth it for the 7″ mixes, might be a hard sell with so many other Thompson Twins greatest hits compilations out there. And, I’d much rather see their music videos all on one disc, rather than spread out across several album reissues. And then I might suggest a 2nd CD of remixes that wouldn’t or didn’t fit elsewhere on other album reissues… although, keep the price attractive. Surely, it doesn’t cost that much to add an extra CD?

    Well done Cherry Red for taking things on board. It’s great to have a record label listen, and also to hear that tapes have been secured. Next step Cherry Red: stop the vinyl rips, or at least do them much better if you HAVE to use them!

    As for the Thompson Twins thing, I’m a bit confused, as the first five albums have been done, and not by Cherry Red. FWIW I’d much prefer there to be no dead space on those CDs so to maximise the amount of extras. With the trio line up albums the format they used made sense anyway because of the cassette bonus tracks.

  8. Mike F says:

    Just a quick extra for Cherry Red (I don’t know the answer to this myself) as I Owe You Nothing was released twice, was it the same 7″ mix both times?

  9. Pete says:

    This is just amazing news. Fantastic. Thank you Cherry Red.

  10. Stephane P. says:

    Excellent idea to add the single versions.
    But note the absence of two Pettibone remixes on this release.
    I Owe You Nothing Dub & Shep Pettibone Re-Remix are only still available on the US promotional twelve inch…

  11. Which Version of SILENT NIGHT are we getting?, Just the 7″ Version or Full Length Version?
