Maybe because of bonus material problems?

Re: Selling My Live Rykos new [re: diamondogz74]  

I know that the first three were released in the US a good few months before becoming available in the UK, I think after that the releases were more evenly matched.

Yes, Russell you are right about SM and ZSTMP, they were released at different times. My mistake.

It was only in 1999 that all the (studio) albums were released almost at once, I think they were released in two batches.

Ant, when people refer to Ryko's it is usually both the Rykodisc and the EMI versions they are referring to. If they are talking about the 1999 issues, they usally say the remasters.

The Beatles albums! new [re: diamondogz74]  

It's interesting in timing and what is decided for re-release.
I find it interesting how The Beatles albums were released once onto cd in the late 1980's and not again since, What you buy in the shops as a new copy of a Beatles album on cd will be from the 80's, unless its The re-release of the White album and Let it be, both of which were heavily tampered with.
The same with the Wilburys and Buddha of Suburbia, they are obviously in demand so why arent they re-released?

How was the special edition of the White album tampered with? I never heard that.

I heard that there were small pieces which were taken out such as slight mutterings betweens the Beatles in some tracks, I can't remember what they were now.

Ryko Days [re: Pablo-Picasso]  

From memory, the RYKO issues spanned two full years. According to the Guiness Book of Rock Stars, the first three (Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory) were released on April 4, 1990 and charted at UK #39, UK #66 and UK #64 respectively. Ziggy was released two months later in June and proved the most in demand reissue charting at UK #25. On July 28, Aladdin Sane (UK #43) and Pin Ups (UK #52) were reissued. On Oct 27, Diamond Dogs (UK #67) was reissued. In the next couple months, I purchased my first disc which was Young Americans and I recall a happy summer's day riding home on the bus with Low, "Heroes" and Lodger freshly purchased from Virgin megastore (which had a special display). Scary Monsters was a long wait (perhaps a full year) and Ziggy Motion Picture was some time as well. The latter two were released post Tin Machine II - they both have 1992 printed on them.

Has anyone noticed that the first three reissues (the pre-Ziggy albums) have a different font on the spine? All other RYKOS (including the Yoko Ono and Frank Zappa ones I've seen) use the typically distinctive RYKO italics. Seeing it was my first experience with those albums, I always considered them something of a trilogy.

Re: The Beatles albums! new [re: skellaway]  

Just looking arount the net and it says that there was no remastering of the White album done, which is what I thought, as I quite fancied getting the album back in 1998 but didn't because it was;
A: Too expensive at nearly 30
B: Not remastered, and having the original cd issue, seemed superfluous.
If you look on Amazon, a lot of the comments are related to the fact it isn't remastered.

Ryko Days



When these albums first came out, I was still buying vinyl, so all the albums up to David Live (apart from, for some reason Diamond dogs) I have on vinyl, with TMWSTW and HD being the RYKO clear vinyl editions, the others being the inferior UK EMI black vinyl editions. I managed to buy a lot of them on cd quite cheap from 1993 onwards, I think the first two I bought, Pin ups and Diamond dogs cost me about 4 each.
