Dreamscapes was indeed a treasure trove of great stuff — I absolutely devoured it when I bought it. SimonP says: Amazon ca. Hopefully Utopia follows before too long; it should greatly benefit from remastering as well. The real thing remains to be seen as time goes by.
Classic album that reminds me of my teenage years! Would love a similar AIU box set to follow! I went into Leeds the next day to buy it from Jumbo records, I had to beg for the only picture sleeve copy they had in the window!
A classic synth pop track and one that I still play a lot… and the album was just perfect too. Region 0? Also, the most diehard fan material being in the super deluxe and the rest available as various options has an air of common sense and value. Universal — take note! A great idea for !!! One of my favourite albums. Not a bad song on the album. Equal to the best Yazoo, Erasure and Depeche Mode output of that era.
Unfortunately except for the demos there is nothing new here. What a huge shame. The rest I already have. This should have included a 5. Big fan of that album, the 2cd version should be fine for me.
For everyone complaining about the vinyl — you could always sell it on eBay or elsewhere. Not sure anyone would buy it. The box set is reasonably priced. It is really incredible that it has taken so long to see a remastered release of FY, a landmark of synth-pop and 80s pop generally.
Hopefully Utopia follows before too long; it should greatly benefit from remastering as well. Mighty — appropriate name! Rich I completely agree. I have no desire for a vinyl in the box. I dont need it if i get the cd also. Just a ploy to raise the price. Id get the twoCD version but i want the dvd. And book. Do like Kylie with multiple versions or at least two. Would love more info on the documentary, mainly the length of it! Looks like all the demos are taken from the Dreamscapes box set.
That mix is far better than the album version to my taste. Instant purchase, been waiting 20 years for this. Now can we have Afternoons in Utopia as well please? Would be nice to get a choice how many times have we heard this all before……. Well, there is another Alphaville box in preparation. I mean — it is to be released on 15th of January — contains whole event from last May, when the band played two nights in a row in Whisky A Go Go in LA.
Here you can find more info about it: The presentation box is very sturdy, in the shape of the Whisky, and lavishly illustrated inside and out. I grew up in Germany in the 80s and this is one of my favourite albums and a little overlooked in the UK where they are seen as one hit wonders. Really looking forward to this! Any chance of getting hold of some signed copies Paul? Excellent news. Thank you, Paul! This vinyl combo releases are starting to get really annoying.
Purchased right away. Very excited about this, though primarily for the remastering and vinyl. I managed to track down an Israeli vinyl pressing of the album a few years ago, which is great, for what it is. Ordered today! So — if you want the demos you must get the box, this means pay again and TWICE, for an album and singles that you already HAVE in your collection and in more than one edition….
Does anyone think a standalone CD of 16 Alphaville demos is going to exactly fly off the shelves? You have to buy one of their choices. Rhino packages these according to what might have the most sales. And why should I buy this again?
I am for certain this new edition will sound way better. I had emailed just about everyone I could think of for a reissue with no reply. Best synthpop band ever in my opinion. Coming to Ireland and u. But the new band are not very good unfortunately…. Your email address will not be published. Search Search. Skip to content. Alphaville Forever Young - super deluxe box.
