Dishy new [re: Sysiyo]  

Normally I'd agree but in this case I'd much rather have a superior remix, like The Hearts Filthy Lesson (Rubber Mix), than an average outtake. If the chosen outtake had been The Enemy Is Fragile, though...

The press release indicates these reissues will be "remastered." Do you think they will sound better than the originals?

remaster, remix, reissue, remake, remodel, rebuy new [re: pianocraft]  

Considering they are only from the last ten years, i cannot foresee a drastic change in the sound myself. If the packaging isn't up to much I won't get them, especially as some sources still quote the 2 disc sets being released at some point.

Remember it's true, loyalty is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

Resound new [re: pablopicasso]  

The sound quality will undoubtedly be louder. Listen to CD's starting from the early 80's, you'll notice that the main change is not the sound quality (although that has improved, too) but the 'default' volume in which the CD has been pressed.

Re: Resound new [re: Sysiyo]  

Indeed. It was coomon practise to let CDs peak at -10dB to protect audio equipment. They seem to be using the CD's full dynamic range these days. The result is louder CDs, but will they enhance the dynamic range or just push the volume up?

But hey, those re-issues seem to be another missed opportunity.

Re: official word, tracks, release dates for reissues new [re: Ninhead]  

Let's face it: ever since Rykodisc lost the rights over David's catalog, each and every reissue has been a disappointment. I've stopped holding my breath for reissues a long time ago (I can't hold my breath that long, anyway...). Neither David nor any major label is ever going to give us what we really want. I was surprised by the inclusion of some rare television appearances on the "Best of Bowie" DVD. The "Bowie at the Beeb" package was not what it could have been, but it was OK (especially the bonus disc). Apart from those, nothing really interesting has come from the vaults.

Just plain experimenting. I have ahabit of burning compilation CD's of different material. One of them had Cat People from the original 1982 MCA CD followed by Let's Dance from the 1999 EMI CD. I have to crank up the volume to hear Cat People and then push it down for Let's Dance.

Another example is a compilation disc I burned from a friend's Bowie singles. It has trans starting from Real Cool World and ending with 1917. When listening to it, you don't notice it but the volume get's louder by each new release. When put on repeat, the difference in loudness between 1917 and Real Cool World is noticeable.

It looks like you don't really get much at all, the extras just seem to be b-sides which most Bowie fans will already have as I do.

It was my understanding that the first CDs were pressed in 1983, since last year marked their 20th anniversary.

...or is it?
