  1. Neil says:

    That 80s Remixed & Extended is very poor indeed just the same mixes rehashed from from hundreds of other compilations and why on earth is Man In Chains by Spandau Ballet on this apart from never being a single it’s never been remixed either.

    • Mike the Fish says:

      Yeah, what is it with these many Sony based 12″ collections? Quite tedious! I wonder if correct/unedited mixes have been used…

    • Guy says:

      It was remixed and extended and released as a single in Europe back in the day. I think this may be the first time it’s been on CD.

  2. DaveM says:

    Also out this week is Pavlov’s Dog – House Broken, a live double CD/DVD combo filmed & recorded in 2015.

    • MiG says:

      Two magic words. Pavlov’s Dog. And I thought I was the only one. Thanks for the news.

      • DaveM says:

        MiG, no you are not the only one.. Had the privilage of seeing them live in Bilston at the Robin 2 in 2012 and they were great so I have high hopes for this. Also met David Surkamp and Mike Safron before the gig, and they were both charming and signed my copy of Pampered Menial. Needless to say it is framed and on the wall.

        • MiG says:

          Don’t frame it, play it! :-) My first youthful triumph was getting Tommy Vance to play “Preludin/Of Once And Future Kings” on the Friday Rock Show in about 1988 or thereabouts. I hope that made a few new fans, though I admit the first time is the problem. I’ve always felt I was shouting in the wilderness about PD. But boy, they’re good.

          • DaveM says:

            MiG well done for getting PD played. I am a more recent fan, having been introduced to BOC via Imaginos in 1988 (still my favourite BOC) and then subsequently PD by the same mate. I had the original Columbia signed and have also got the Rockville and Esoteric version of PM so no worries with hearing that classic.

  3. Dennis says:

    I wish it would be just an expanded and remasterd edition of ‘Entreat’… The drumsound on the remixed version just doesn’t do it justice compared to the original release.

  4. ChristopherM says:

    Rock fans of a certain age – ie around my age – will also be interested to know that Esoteric (Cherry Red) will be releasing an SDE of Barclay James Harvest’s “Gone To Earth” this week.

    It consists of three discs (2xCD & 1xDVD), which include the original stereo mix, a new stereo mix, 96kHz/24-bit stereo and a new 5.1 mix. There’s also some bonus studio recordings, including single edits.
