Its been mentioned several times in passing but I am surprised that EMI (if they are still the holders of the back-catalogue) havent produced reissues sets of the first three CD's yet.  Interesting that there has been a complete reticence to directly exploit the late 80s Virgin catalogue - as no T'Pau, Julia Fordham, Hue & Cry, Belinda Carlisle (save Heaven on Earth) and others etc reissues apart from bargain compilations. 

Greg/Pat - has there ever been any talks about exploiting the back catalogue - or doing a ''Howard Jones'' and licencing the masters off them and reissueing them yourselves?

This might be a good idea. Here's a few suggestions:

CD 1: Original album.

CD 2: Alternate mixes (not sure about demos?).

DVD: Making-of, promotional videos, TV appearances, full album performed live.

I think perhaps full concerts should be released separately?

Remote would probably stretch to 3 CD's with all the B sides, mixes of Sweet Invisibility etc.  Duran Duran manage to licence all the BBC In Concert's with their reissues digitally - it would be great if the H&C ones could be included too.

If you ignore demos, I think it might all be able to fit onto one CD (I could be wrong, though) - I forgot to mention the B sides.

Since previously posting, 'Remote: Major to Minor' was released, but I'm wondering about the other albums. :)

Here's suggestions:

Seduced and Abandoned

Full album

Disc 2: CD

B-sides

Different mixes/versions

Tracks recorded during sessions? (maybe include 'Here Comes Everybody'?)

Disc 3: DVD

Full album performed live?

Bitter Suite

Disc 1: CD

Full album (reinstate tracks omitted for original release?)

Disc 2: DVD

Stars Crash Down

Disc 1: CD

Different mixes/versions

Tracks recorded during sessions?

Disc 2: DVD

Promotional videos

Making of

Full album performed live?
