OFF TOPIC! No one is interested in such assumptions here.  :pouting-face

Robert has been working on the "Wish" remaster, he said.

Quote"For me, it's really lovely that Simon is up there with me. It's criminal really, because he's been there all the time."

As for how they work together when penning material, he said: "With Simon, we send demos back and forth. Because I write the words, I decide what songs are going to progress and which ones aren't. Often it's the case that with hindsight I pick the wrong songs.

"I've just finished doing the 'Wish' remaster, and there are so many of Simon's demos that never got past the demo stage and remained instrumental – purely because I couldn't think of any words for them. That's really sad, because some of them were really great!

"They're all coming out as instrumentals, and I think there are about 36 unreleased songs coming out on the package. That's the same every time we do anything. There's always loads of music, and a lot of it is Simon's. I just run out of words!"

Believe it or not, it IS actually happening!

This was posted on the band's Facebook today:


(As the image might disappear with time: it is mentioning the 30th anniversary edition of "Wish", using part of the old album artwork.)

Ah sorry for my posting... i was never to fond of the demos, except if they are some early versions like wendy time or demos of unreleased songs. So the deluxe remasters were for me disappointing all in all

No problem, I was going to post in the "news" section as well, so I put it in your thread. :cool

Thanks for posting this. Funny this 'demo' is more high quality than what's on the actual tape lol.

Matti

Well, this is not a demo, is it? And considering that it's been remastered, little wonder it sounds better than a tape from thirty years ago.

Anyway, good to see all of this finally coming up.

I'm curious to see/hear the differences between all the instrumental demos on disc 2 and the inofficial Music for Dreams package that surfaced some years ago.

Yeah, of course Robert & co. had access to the original multi-track master tapes from the vaults and thus were able to re-master the sound.

Quote"In the studio control room, it all sounded excellent, but I got too busy sorting out our upcoming concerts to properly oversee the mastering. It was too late to do anything about it; the album was out, and we were off around the world again. It has really bugged for me for a very long time." Remastering the album earlier this year has finally given Smith the chance to address this "It has taken 30 years, but finally, finally, my Wish has come true."

Good that you mention it, I had a look and realized that the Dim-D mixes mentioned on the remaster actually reflect a note in the credits of the original release: "dimension d mixes by robert smith and roy spong" - just in case anyone else was also wondering.
