Nope, but considering I've officially cut ties with Sony, Cherry Red can have fun with any Sony owned title they like. I will get this and hope it's sourced properly, as it saves me any time an effort. My original King plan was to do a CD+DVD similar to the now shelved Altered Images package. I also wanted to do CD+DVD sets for Bow Wow Wow and Romeo Void. There you go Cherry Red, some ideas for you.

I have a feeling that it's the same people or team that did A Flock Of Seagulls 2cd set last year. According to Cherry Red's website the material of the King stuff was sourced from the original tapes. Let's hope we get some good stuff.

Might want to take a second look. It states "Where available we have sourced the tracks from the original production master tapes." Knowing CR, that means if they aren't in the hall closet, they went with a previous CD issue or noisy vinyl.

You're probably right Scott. I think only a few of these remixes have appeared on cd before namely yours when you did Bittersweet for them a while back. We shall see. My faith in Cherry Red is patchy. Sometimes they've surprised us and put out good stuff. A lot of other times they haven't .

Which is really a shame, those are the kinds of sets I always hope for. I've mentioned this elsewhere (A Flock Of Seagulls), but it seems the +DVD option has been fallen out of favour with the labels. Don't have to mention that I would have bought all 4 of those releases + I am quite sure I wouldn't have been the only one. Can understand your position though, obviously.

Not to make matters worse but I forgot to mention that the Seagulls were planned as well. I wanted to do a +DVD with their Through The Looking Glass video compilation and the videos for Who's That Girl and Heartbeat Like A Drum added. I was also going to try to license the original debut single version of Talking from Bill Nelson for the CD portion. But the final straw with Sony came a couple weeks ago when I got an unappreciated attitude from the "sales" associate that had been nothing but a problem, having the nerve to give me an issue with not immediately approving a couple quotes for her when it took her over 7 months to provide them to me. Then when I did approve them only a few days later, she did her little non-responding crap and I sent a firm letter to the 3 multi-levels of Sales at Sony and essentially told them firmly yet professionally to piss off because of the awful conduct the entire year since first contact. CR stole most of my main ideas anyway and the only unreleased things left were the two Slow Children albums I had just received the quotes for. I would have liked to get those out there but it wasn't worth it to deal those "sales" people any further.

I agree. The Flock of Seagulls "Remixes & Rarities" package, with its excellent track selection, unfortunately, was remastered by Dave Turner. It sounds too loud, harsh, and brittle, at least to my ears, which completely ruined it for me. Now, if they get Nick Robbins to do the mastering for this King package, it could turn out to be an excellent collection, provided that original source tapes are used.

I am sad to read that your reissue projects will not be happening, Scott, but I totally understand your frustration!

wow super excited.
Funny how I just posted about King a few weeks ago. Maybe someone from CR is reading the forums and getting suggestions. Good news anyway!

I thought the AFOS was alright, loud but not as bad as some. Good for archive purposes.
CR also do great liner notes. It's another big reason for me to buy them. I don't own a CD player but will get these and get my brother to rip them for my archive.

It is sadly missing I Kissed The Spikey Fridge Live (maybe no room or no master) but otherwise this and the 2 reissued albums should give you everything King released commercially

They could've also included a couple of Paul King's solo singles from 1987. But this new King cd set looks highly impressive. Let's just hope that we're not disappointed with bad vinyl rips and unwanted edits.

Those samples are so low-fi I can't make out much from them, but I will say that when sampling the Alone Without You (Street Mix), I heard a very distorted S word. That could be indicative of a vinyl source, or it could just be the low quality samples. I would want to have a good quality rip of some of the suspect songs to really get a better idea.
