Altered Images 4 x CD box set

Just wondering were those Edsel AI reissues any good at all?. I never picked any up as they got mixed reviews, wrong versions, average sound quality etc.

They were a botched mess, which was my motivation for correcting it. They used incorrect versions of songs, vinyl rips (when tapes existed. I know because we used the tapes for those tracks on the Vinyl 180 reissues). Happy Birthday was cobbled together from various previous CD reissues, so it was inconsistent. Just a really bad job all the way. Not to mention insulting liner notes in Pinky Blue. They should be tossed in trash.

Thanks for the info. I'm kinda glad that i didn't buy. The only AI cd i have is Reflected Images: The Best Of from 1996.

It will be called The 'Epic' Albums and features Happy Birthday, Pinky Blue, Bite (all with bonus tracks) plus a further disc of 12" mixes. Masters supplied by Sony - now at the artwork stage, so watch this space for further updates on confirmed tracklistings etc.


Knowing the bonus material fits on each respective album, I would've hoped CD4 might've included their Peel sessions, or something really interesting for a change. Clare's shelved solo album from 1988, for example, would've been awesome.

This is great news. I was disappointed with the previous issues, I only ended up buying Pinky Blue, and hoped that better issues would eventually appear of the other albums. I can't wait for the release of this box set... :D :D :D

No, it's still in development. But I did get confirmation from Cherry Red that it will NOT include BBC sessions or a DVD.

Bummer on the no BBC and DVD. Why is it so hard to release Altered Images videos?

It always gets down to money, doesn't it? I imagine they'd have to pay a lot for the licensing and don't foresee selling enough copies of these to make it worthwhile. At this stage of the physical media decline, I'm glad just to see the music reissued properly - probably the last time for hard copies. That being said, I'd love a dvd of video clips and the BBC sessions as extras - the boat sailed on these at least a decade ago, I'm afraid... :(

I haven't found out anything for sure. But I have a strong hunch it came after mine. CR has a very good relationship with Sony UK and it doesn't take long at all to get a project going for them. They are still in such early stages with this project that they haven't even finalized the content, so that likely indicates that it was approved not long before thorpy posted his message, but well after my initial approval (and posts here) had already been received.

Don't want to support these repeated re-releases.
