I am absolutely delighted to finally be able to announce that on February 14th 2020 (our Valentine's Day gift to you) BMG will release the latest in their series of remastered and expanded Erasure CD reissues with a 3-CD edition of 'Chorus' which features a remastered version of the original album on one disc; a selection of new and classic remixes, b-sides and bonus tracks on disc two; and a live version of the entire 'Chorus' album, recorded on Erasure's Phantasmagorical Entertainment Tour, on the final disc.

Oh wait, I meant they should have included 180g orange vinyl, and a 12" picture disc too. ;)

That's a tad odd. B3 especially. I suppose they want to preserve the value of the Japanese CD5" and EBX 4.3? :?

Don't know if it tops the Grid Mix, but I'm liking this better than the Bascombe mix. It's a great example of a mix that is contemporary to the release; not some attempt to fit it into some latter genre. I can easily imagine this being on 12MUTE134. (Should've been on an XL12MUTE134, really) :)

Well I'm definitely looking forward to the new mixes (and yay! there's Vince's TLTA remix we heard about so long ago!), and I'm finding there's more to like and be thrilled for here than for Wild!. It's nice there's a few promo only 'rarities' on there as well to make it a bit more worthwhile (Chorus Ben Grosse mix is aka the previously released Low End Mix in case anyone is wondering).

Not so sure about the live 'track by track' third disc. I know this concert was perhaps the first (and last?) time they'd performed every song from an album so such a thing is do-able, but if they're going to use the disc to re-release live stuff, I'd rather they squeeze on as much from the show as they could! Also, not quite sure why they couldn't have done the same with Wild! But I've already got it all anyway, so no biggie. Maybe they're hoping it'll help shift a few more copies of the DVD!

On one hand, I think I'd rather they doubled up on the b-sides and mixes with two CDs of that stuff - that way at least all the b-sides from the period could be on there as well. On the other hand - as with the live tracks, it's makes little difference to me as I've got it all already!

Anyway, my copy is ordered :D

They ARE the same images from the original release, but in a postcard aspect ratio instead of square. I'm going to guess that means they are also printed on a heavier duty cardboard and so will be a little sturdier.
