    There is still a third reisssue from Status Quo as well, On The Level.

  2. Rob Wilcock says:

    Karl Bartos rereleases his 2003 debut solo album. The re-release, which will be the first time the album is available digitally, also comes with bonus track ‘Camera Obscura’.

    Amazon seem to have mixed up their product descriptions as the CD release says it is 180 gran vinyl plus free CD copy of the album for £16,99

    There is also a very good Larry Levan double CD Genius Of Time for £6.99 which includes loads of great mixes from Gwen Guthrie snd Grace Jones amongst others.

    Also worth a mention, “Communication” from Karl Bartos (of Kraftwerk). Released in 2003 but not publicised well at the time and quickly out of print. Remastered and out on CD or Vinyl+CD on Friday.

    …but, oh dear, all those peeps that forked out a fortune for the Queen coloured vinyl boxset…
    it’s been repressed!

  5. Rob Wilcock says:

    Did anyone mention the Karl Bartos Communication CD/vinyl/download..?

    They have great taste in musuc if they did…

    Also out on CD this week, Pere Ubu’s remastered New Picnic Time, the Art of Walking and Song of the Bailing Man. Last weeks Hearpen Singles CD is some of the best remastering I have ever heard.

  7. Peter B says:

    Also released this week is the single of Singularity by New Order on CD, 12″ and a download bundle. Annoyingly, the download bundle has 10 tracks while the CD has only 6. Preordering the CD from the New Order store I’ve been sent “instant grat” downloads of 2 tracks that I’ll already get on the CD – I would have preferred being sent downloads of the tracks not on the CD.

  8. David says:

    Yes, cheers for the Pere Ubu. Just listening to it now and the remastering is really good, just like the 1st box set.
