"SPECIAL FORTIFIED DANCE MIXES TO ENHANCE DANCEABILITY"
Is this marketed to the supplement-taking crowd? If so, it should come with promotional Martyn, Ian, and Glenn-shaped vitamins.

Anyhow, this is just one more thing I can't afford. I can hear "I'm Your Money" playing in my head just thinking about placing the pre-order. ;)

Incidentally, that really needs remixes...

We've got the brains. We've got the looks. Let's make lots of money (for the Heaven 17 purchase!). 8-)

H17’s ‘Later Years’ • 9CD • 4LP vinyl • SIGNED 9CD sets while stocks last

Another Big Idea: 1996 - 2015 (Amazon Exclusive Signed Edition)

This March, Heaven 17 are to release Another Big Idea (1996-2015), nine-CD and 4LP vinyl box sets that follow the band’s work from when they regrouped and returned from a six-year hiatus in 1996 with the album Bigger Than America.

The nine-disc CD version of Another Big Idea features the albums Bigger Than America (1996) and Before After (released 2005 – the last album to feature Ian Craig Marsh). There’s also the 1998 remix album Retox/ Detox where various then-contemporaries took the band’s earlier hits down the rave-up, 2008’s Naked As Advertised: Versions 08 where they offered acoustic/ stripped back versions of their and The Human League’s catalogue, and 1999’s How Live Is – taken from their first live appearance. The box also hoovers up covers of songs by U2 (‘With or Without You’), Prince (‘Sign O’ The Times’) and Madonna (‘Holiday’) which the band had recorded for various tribute albums.

More intriguing is the previously unreleased Space Age Space Music. An instrumental album recorded in 1998, where they’d planned to get various singers to write their own lyrics to the tunes, but never got around to fully realising it.

Image

In total, there are 48 bonus tracks and remixes, and like last year’s Play to Win set, Another Big Idea comes packaged as a large format (12″ x 12″) book. This contains 28-pages of photos, new notes and interviews with the band.

There is also a 4LP coloured vinyl version of Another Big Idea (1996-2008) which brings together the three studio albums – Bigger Than America (opaque blue vinyl), Before After (white vinyl) and Naked As Advertised (transparent green) – and How Live Is (process blue vinyl).

For the 9CD set only, there is an Amazon Exclusive edition (available only in the UK), limited to 500 units and which comes with a signed print.
