The irony!

Hey Gazza, do you think it's possible that this might have something to do with the split between Virgin and ABKCO? Like maybe now ABKCO will get the counts of units sold or something of that matter (and possibly Virgin got counts for the previous years)? I'm not sure how all of that contractual BS works with this, but I'm thinking that this has something to do with it.

I've absolutely no idea, mate. I'm as much in the dark as you with that ABCKO/Virgin EMI stuff as well.

Like Soldatti says, the 4th issue/reissue of a repackaged album in under 2 and a half years - plus the reissues within the last year of 3 long deleted compilations that were supposed to have been rendered obsolete by the issue of "40 Licks" and the three Decca CD singles boxed sets, (which to be fair, at least showed some degree of imagination that the Virgin repackages lacked) - and of course the release of a live album which was basically an edited audio soundtrack of a year old DVD.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the Stones were already dead. This nonsense is as bad as the way RCA used to endlessly repackage Elvis' material. At least, being dead, he had an excuse and couldnt really be blamed for it.

Rolled Gold Vol. 2, what else?

I did hear a story a while back that Rolled Gold (which was a 1975 Decca compilation - the UK equivalent of "Hot Rocks" for those who dont know, albeit with some different tracks) was going to be finally issued on CD. Dont know if its true, though.

personally, I think the post-1970 period has been cashed-in on in a worse way than Decca ever did.

remember the fuss a few months ago when it was rumoured that one disc from "live licks" was going to consist of a "best of" selection from previous live albums? all seriousness, would you put it past them to release something like that? I wouldnt!

Talking about re-issues, Elvis is #1 on the UK singles chart for a 4th non consecutive week, from 5 re-issues only 1 missed the #1...

corgi37 It is more funny than anything else. The 1st Stones stuff i got was a Decca box set for Christmas in '78. Came with a neat t-shirt. Had 6 albums. 1 band member on the cover of each album, and a band pic on the other.

Made in the shade might have actually been my next purchase. I must have played it so much, the needle would just go through it. The best thing i remember about "MADE" was that when i took it to a mates place, his mum would comment on how lovely Angie was. She couldnt believe it was a song by the dirty, nasty Stones. Also, i loved playing it on his stereo, because he had a fault somewhere. So, when Brown Sugar came on, the vocals were missing! It was awesome to just hear the backing track. To this day, i cant imagine what was wrong his his little 3 in 1 system.

Why dont ABCKO release a definative Ya ya's? Add stuff like Gimme Shelter and Satisfaction. That is more interesting to me than live licks. Which, btw, i STILL have not bought. Aint even interested. Ok, i downloaded disc 2, but i aint ashamed.

It means the unimaginative fuckers dont get a cent from me!

glencar Of course, this reissue sucks. But anyway, who's that on the cover of Made In The Shade? Bowie? Jagger?

Nasty Habits Remember that compilation "Gimme Shelter" that was made to look like the soundtrack to the movie but was really like a side of Got Live if You Want It and a side of Ya Ya's?

I think they should rerelease that!

stonedinaustralia there's one old decca compilation that would be worth re-releasing on CD (which i don't think it has been) is "No Stone Unturned" - a nice collection of b sides including the stutastic "stoned" - and the off the wall "who's driving your plane"

corgi37 I had that Gimme SHelter record. TOssed it out years ago. Thats the one with essentially a b&w pic of Jagger on the cover, but his lips painted red.

That would have to be one of the worst, most blatent examples of a rip-off there ever was.

There was another compilation that i had, that had the Italian version of As tears go by.

And, along with Rolled GOld, there was one called 30 Greatest hits of the Rolling Stones.

stonedinaustralia corgi - think your mistaken - i remember that record of which you speak - i think that was called "stoned" or "stones" whatever something very unoriginal

the "gimme shelter" record nasty is talking about had a live shot from 69/70

Lil Brian Where is "I Think I'm Going Mad" or "Brown Sugar 12/CSB" or "Through the Lonely Nights" on CD?
Can we at least have the officially released stuff on CD?
February 10th, 2005 07:40 PM
corgi37 Yeah, your right SIA.

glencar I remember the excitement I used to feel when I would purchase foreign compilations. In the US, we had quite a few but the foreign ones looked much better & generally included the more obscure songs. I paid a pretty penny for a German 4 LP collection that featured "Stoned" & "Lacrime Italiano" & other tasty bits. Now its the same ol' shit recycled every few years.

What the fuck's this? Remasters remastered??

February 12th, 2005 04:43 AM
corgi37 Were'nt the ones after 1970 remasted 10 years ago for the re-issue of the cd's with the original album cover format? Because i have a doco on VHS with Keith and Mick talking about re-mastering & re-mixing stuff like Tumbling Dice.

And, wasnt Jump Back full of re-mastered versions when it came out?
February 12th, 2005 07:12 AM

Yes it was. It was released in 1993 to coincide with the remasterd Virgin back catolouge.

Just a note: These are U.K. reissues. However, they will be available as IMPORTS.

Looks like I was wrong and these will be released in the US.

The release date for SITS and MITS will be April 5th in the US.
