Which "Classic Album" should be re-released?

Hence there has been a lot of talking about re-releases, limited editions etc. lately on the forum, I would like to know which album YOU would like to see re-released. In every record collection there is always missing a thing or two.

 

Here are some of my suggestions:

 

BPC : Blue Planet

Man with no name: Moment of truth/Teleportation

Koxbox: Forever after (this one has been re-released already in '99 by Matsuri, a long time ago...)

 

So bring it on people! :)

I'd say IFO and Feeling Weird, but since I've paid silly sums of money for both I'd actually be a bit pissed off. So I'll say Avangaro instead.

The original albums usually keep their value...so no reason to be pissed ;)

Great guys, some I know, some I don't. I'm gonna try to find some more about those unknown(for me!) masterpieces.

 

KEEP'M COMING!! :)

I very much agree with this notion. There's nothing like reading 1997 in the cover somewhere rather than 2010. They're the rare copies, so you'd lose nothing if it got re-released.

Just fresh design and better mastering. Technology is miracle today :lol:

I guess I was lucky with those as I got them pretty cheap. If I remember right, Feeling Weird was only $5 on amazon (substance version) and is still not more the $15 :ph34r:

Some albums mentioned here are still easily available at a decent price. :)

 

Don't know what I'd like to see re-released.. Limited editions maybe, stuff that's handed to a few people.

Just paraphrasing others before me:

 

Miranda - Phenomena

Pleiadians - I.F.O.

VA - Accidental Occidentalism

Bodh Gaya - Ayahuasca

I would actually want re-mastering on most, but leave the art alone imo. :)

 

Not easy but possible for some releases.

Miranda is on internet not so someone can contact it for Phenomena rerelease :)

It would be very helpful which albums you've pointed out here and where to get them cheap! :rolleyes:

I also noticed at discogs that you can find reasonably priced albums but I'm reluctant to buy them because of the state they're in(artwork+cd).

 

Example Album x you can get for 20 euro(= reasonable) and at the same time other copies 40-50 euro or even more. :unsure:

 

Maybe I shoud give it a try and see for myself but somehow I don't trust it.

Well the topic title was "Classic albums" so one has to agree on what is a classic or not. Accidental Occidentalism is just a compilation not album; we haven't seen compilations being re-released, only a mix by Goa Gil which the original isn't a rarity after all.

 

Chances that most of these albums will be re-released are extremely remote IMO. Remember some time ago there was a rumour Avatar bought the Dragonfly rights? Doesn't seem to have been true. The biggest hope is still always Avatar though; DAT records mission is to release "the unreleased", so at best it will release a "classic" plus a second CD with unreleased. We already saw it happening with BPC. Suntrip released Transdimensional, arguably the most overpriced one back then, but that was only a one time incidence because artist RA works with Suntrip too.

 

Don't want to sound negative but can't imagine anyone in these times venturing up into setting a label purely to release overpriced sought after albums. The licensing headache and the costs far outweigh potential sales.

 

BTW: speaking of (for a change :lol:) of I.F.O. it has been made available digitally. Still, the legality seems unclear according to discogs history.

Miranda - Phenomena: 20€.

MWNN - Moment of Truth: 20€

KoxBox - Forever After: 14€

Chakra & Edi Mis - The Promised Land: 20€

-> considering they are at least in NM condition, so you surely can find them for less. And these are discogs-prices, which are most of the time way too high. :D

Of course you should do that! I really don't see any other option, since there aren't a lot of oldschool albums at e-shops (like Psyshop etc.) available. Discogs and ebay are your friends. ^^ Let's face it, I don't think most labels would re-release an album for only a handful (compared to the numbers of full on/darkpsy fans) of goa trance lovers.

I was doing some research too Djuna, now some of the ridiculously priced:

 

One man game: Total Trance 200 euro

Adrenalin Drum: X-perimental goa 120 euro

MWNN: Teleportation 70-80 euro

Hunab-Ku: Magic Universe not available

Lotus Omega: Recycle Bin 65-100 euro

...

info from Discogs

I think there are fullon/darkpsy/prog freaks who like goa. We are talking about the originators here.

I've heard this statement over and over and it get's kinda tyring, no offense Djuna, really. All I can say is to check psyshop/saiko/beatspace and look for the reissues from the past years. Are these recordlabels stupid??

As I said before if now and then 1 or 2 classics are being re-released, which is NOT out of the ordinary, I'll be happy! :)

I never said that re-releasing a CD is something stupid, I said that it's probably less interesting for labels in a commercial point of view. You can't say that goa trance labels nowadays make tons of profit. But I wouldn't mind at all, of course.

And yes, some things are as expensive as new body parts. But that's something that is part of collecting - also to find the goodies at a low price (and of course the necessary bragging to someone who paid millions for the same stuff :D).

Actually the topic title is: Which "classic album" should be re-released?...according to YOU! I'm still waiting... :lol:

 

Wether it makes sense to you or the recordlabel is quite...well dare I say...off-topic :P

And Inpsyde to a lesser extent, though they don't seem to have reissued anything since 2005.

Then I'm REALLY glad it's not about making tons of profit... :ph34r:

You're totally right...the hunt being better than the catch and all that. Don't get me wrong, I like to visit those little recordshops or websites and try to find that rare album... but to some extend(and the fact that I can't speak Finnish doesn't help either hence HUUTO.NET is a bloody Finnish site :lol: )
