Though it was originally due last October and then supposedly March of this year, here we are in October 2022, and STILL no offical word on the Regatta de Blanc Expanded Edition. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Ugh. I need new stuff. Maybe a second Gizmodrome album. Or a solo album with Rusty and ASL.
There is no bigger gong.

It's just effing ridiculous. It's like they're purposely waiting for ALL of their original fans to all die off before they put out anything notable.

^ At least The Police is a FAIRLY recent act, as far as "old" bands go. Try being an OG fan of ELO. Most of their stuff has been released on very or fairly good sounding recordings, but 2 or 3 expanded albums are in order (and..... can someone re-issue expanded Secret Messages with less compression, PLEASE?), and so a few expanded things still haven't happened. ELO started in the very beginning of the 70s, and those fans are more likely to die. The Police OG fans are not that old, and....... whatever happened to reading the Old Testament (well, The Torah, really) and seeing all those mentions of kings that lived for several hundred years? I mean, figure out advanced regeneration, and live for at least 150 yourself. EZ!

Anyway, I will confess this is the first time in 3 months I actually read the Andy interview. Originally I just responded to the news.

Oh, can I mention that all those remasters are damn near worthless, sound-wise? Recorded sound is just a wavy line, and a digital sound file is that line drawn with little dots, and a machine reads those dots and try to draw the original line using dots as reference. Sound mixing has been perfected somewhere between 70s and early 90s, and the CD standard, even with its limitations, can still be used to present music near perfectly (provided during mixing instruments were intelligently separated into the 2 channels and dynamic range has been made large). All those technologically challenged people reading about "the new remasters" think the music will "sound even better now because advanced technology and stuff". No, it won't. Even in 2022 Message in a Box still sounds perfect.

To summarize, I care for unheard songs, not "improvements to the sound", which will not be even audible without being really high-rez files listened through several hundred dollar headphones and an expensive DAC.

And to END this lengthy post, let those decades flow. I will get all those re-issues (if with unreleased songs) and remain the eternally 30 year old spring chicken.

Oh, and Andy........ you're killing me!!! Vinyl Harmonics of the Night has 2 extra songs, and 1 more is extra long! I functionally threw away my poor quality turntable, and functionally do not have a turntable right now. I can buy vinyl, but it will collect dust until I can play it again.

Will wait for a potential japanese release, maybe the extra material will get on there. Probably more likely than a CD that has Carry Me Back Home......
