Quote from: | SONA | on October 15, 2008, 22:03:22 Why does the new record effect the release of these deluxe editions?
Quote from: | SONA | on October 15, 2008, 20:00:23I may be in the minority but the "Wish" era is by far my favorite of the Cure's, and I'm dying for a Deluxe Edition re-release as they've done with the early records. I'm new to the forum but couldn't find any info on if/when this might happen. If it does, might all the amazing b-sides including Lost Wishes be included? I'm more interested in having the whole era on a 2 disc set including b-sides rather then demos etc. (although those would be be cool too). I ripped my Lost Wishes tape to mp3 and it's amazing how muddled it sounds
Quote from: | SONA | on October 17, 2008, 04:04:28but this set still doesn't have some of the b-sides from Wish like the incredible alternate mixes of Friday I'm In Love, High or A Letter To Elise...
Quote from: pyota on October 16, 2008, 17:49:03besides lost wishes (which will be great to have on cd since i don't have a tape player anymore), the bonus disc may contain open (fix mix), high (trip mix) instrumental big hand (from picture show video), secret gig versions of wendy time, away etc. from play out
Quote from: pyota on October 16, 2008, 17:49:03i'm looking forward to the disintegration remaster more
Quote from: japanesebaby on October 17, 2008, 08:14:04about remastered material: sadly, remastering doesn't always mean the sound got better - especially when remastering is being done according to the production standards of today (which are simply quite low, sadly). 'join the dots' was actually mastered well and therefore it sounds good (see the attachment: it looks healthy with no digital distortion on the waveform and therefore it's a pleasure for the ears). but what comes to the upcoming deluxe releases, i'm slightly afraid of the results as recently the cure has proven not to care about quality sound anymore.i'll be surprised if 'disintegration' and 'wish' sound any better in their remastered form (it's truly hard to beat the late 80's/early 90's productions!). the only thing that makes them really interesting are the bonus discs. 'lost wishes' would be nice to hear in good quality, hopefully there'd be some unreleased tracks too. about later albums: WMS could actually be made sound notably better than the '96 cd version if it was mastered like 'disintegration' and 'wish' originally were. and i wouldn't want to sound negative on purpose but i just really doubt it that it'll remastered well. but let's hope for the best!
Quote from: wish-man on October 17, 2008, 16:33:31Well, I can organize for you a 'special' deluxe edition, as we (I am at least) have all these songs and moreover in FLAC :roll:I'm waiting for something more...
Quote from: | SONA | on October 17, 2008, 16:56:59I took my lost wishes from my tape to lossless AIFF and it's just the crappy tape that makes it sound muddled...
Quote from: | SONA | on October 17, 2008, 16:56:59The Join The Dots remasters of Play and all the other b-side sound much crisper, louder and some levels are much stronger... noticeable most on drums... definitely an improvement... you get all the genius early 90's production with a bit better sound.
