Jesus Jones / 3-disc deluxe reissues

jj_group

British band Jesus Jones who enjoyed transatlantic success in the early nineties with their distincitive mix of dance and indie-rock are to have their four studio albums of the era reissued by Edsel Records as comprehensive 2CD+DVD editions.

Signed to Dave Balfe’s Food Records (also home to Blur) 1989 debut Liquidizer featured the single Info Freako which only just failed to break into the UK top 40. A similar fate befell the albums two other singles, but everything changed with the next record, 1991’s Doubt. Real Real Real and Right Here, Right Now were both UK top 40 hits (the former peaking inside the top 20) but it was in the US that the band were having a bit impact with both 45s reaching the Billboard Hot 100 top ten, with Right Here, Right Now peaking at number two.

In the end, that mainstream Stateside chart action was fairly short-lived and so while the third Doubt single, International Bright Young Thing, reached number seven in the UK it failed to repeat the mainstream US success of the earlier releases.

Third album Perverse (1993) featured another UK top ten UK single in The Devil You Know and although not regarded as a big success, the long-player still reached number six in the album charts (Doubt had hit the top spot). The final album of the era, 1997’s Already, failed commercially and the band split with Food (who by this point were wholly owned by EMI).

Across these four reissues you will find a massive amount of sought after remixes, rare tracks, and demos as well as a DVD for each album featuring videos and live footage. The now familiar Edsel 24-page casebound books feature photos, memorabilia and extensive annotations by Iain Baker of the band.

The Jesus Jones reissues will be issue on 17 November 2014.

    Cool! I was a big fan back in the day. I think I’ll pick up Doubt.
    BTW, the tracklist for already has a mistake.
    Thank you!

  2. Ignazio Porchia says:

    It seems that Edsel has made a great job in terms of packaging for all of their latest reissues. Why the hell Suede’s 2CD+DVD deluxe editions back in 2011 were so shitty?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Because that was three years ago and they’ve got better!

    • Aevion says:

      I think they must’ve took notice of the criticism of said Suede reissues. Oddly enough I bought the Coming Up reissue from JB-HIFI and the packaging was quite strong and had a thicker feel to it, yet I bought the Head Music one from Amazon and it felt really weak and was creased. Also, the Australian ones have Warner Music on the spine rather than Edsel.

      I love these casebound book releases of late; I bought all the Deacon Blue ones and I’m tempted to buy these as well.

  3. Jonc says:

    Ooh, tempting…! Big fan back in the day. I loved Perverse…did nothing here in the States…it’s a lot darker and far moodier than Doubt, but it’s a hell of a great album.

  4. Jan Burnett says:

    Well worth getting the first two albums.

    I’m guessing they didn’t have space to add the live at US Chicago Metro ep.

  5. Francis says:

    Got to get the first 3 albums in deluxe form and update the single disc issues I originally purchased in the 1990s as there is so much more on these. Bl0ody Brilliant!

  6. Dennis says:

    This will be a damn expensive autumn… tracklisting sounds really promising.

  7. FifthDream says:

    Really excited for these. “Doubt” and “Perverse” are a couple of my very favorite albums. Still listen to them all the time. Can’t wait for these to arrive in the mail.

  8. SimonP says:

    I was interested in Liquidizer until I spotted Info Sicko is missing. I played that track to death at my 21st and don’t appear to have the 12″ anymore.

  9. Judy Lartham says:

    You know, these re-issues get very confusing!!! I’m tempted to make an Excel chart to try and keep track of them!

    If I want to get everything they have done, but do not want to duplicate (since it can get pretty expensive), what sets do I need to order?

    And, can I assume that if they are released in the UK, I can get them from the US? Usually you can get them shipped, but I want to be sure.

    Still hoping the touring bug will extend to San Francisco.

    Thanks ………… judy

  10. Ross says:

    Definitely looking forward to these. I was a big fan way back when. Liquidizer and Doubt are the must buys for me – though I’m hoping the lack of Info Sicko is an error, and it’s on there somewhere.
    Jesus Jones are one of the forgotten bands of the 90s – by the mainstream at least.

  11. Francis says:

    I notice there are two 12inch versions of ‘Real Real Real’ missing from the ‘Doubt’ CD/DVD Set (the ‘Luxury Mix’ and the ‘Spaced Mix’).

  12. FM says:

    On Disc 2 of Liquidizer, what is listed as Move Mountains (Ben Chapman Mix) sounds just like the album version of Move Mountains, and nothing like the Ben Chapman Mix. Anyone else notice this?
